Hivr crypto wallet offers a completely new Bitcoin BCH experience
Despite the market already being saturated with a number of options, there doesn’t seem to be an end to the development of new cryptocurrency wallets. All offer some twist on the technology, but a new player takes things to a whole new level. The Hivr wallet isn’t just a wallet—it’s a social media platform and it was designed specifically for Bitcoin BCH.
Hivr made its debut this past Monday. It is still in beta testing for Android devices only (an iOS version is expected once the bugs are worked out on the Android platform), but has already gathered a lot of attention. It includes the wallet, a social news feed, native tipping and an instant messaging platform. Best of all, its social media posting capability is available for free.
After installing the application from the Google Play Store, the user is prompted to input their credentials or, if a new user, to register. In keeping with the mantra of cryptocurrency, no email address is required for registration.
Once inside the account, users can configure their favorite topics, after which a BCH wallet is created for the account. As an added measure of security in case recovery is needed, a 12-word mnemonic phrase can be configured to backup of the wallet.
The integration of the social media platform is probably one of the coolest features. It allows users to share posts to their feed and accepts photos, GIFs, media files, text posts and URLs. The instant messaging service is a close second, allowing for both individual and group chats. Under every post is a “gift box,” which allows the user to tip BCH to others. Just like all popular social media platforms, Hivr users have the ability to like, repost and leave comments on any posts that appear in their feed.
Projects like these are exactly what the blockchain needs to continue to evolve. They show the versatility and power of Bitcoin BCH and are what the community is all about. CoinGeek welcomes any developer with a new project to contact us so that we can highlight your creation on the site and help to further expand Bitcoin BCH around the world.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
