BitPay Releases New Version Of Open Source Bitcoin Wallet
BitPay, a global bitcoin payment service provider, on Tuesday rolled out version 1.6.1 of its open source bitcoin wallet Copay.
The latest version includes a new ‘backup verification’ feature. BitPay explains that when users create a new wallet in Copay, the app will help them verify that they have correctly written down their backup phrases. Only when the backup phrase is confirmed will the wallet display its receiving address.
In addition, the wallet home screen and other parts of Copay's user interface have been revamped. Users will now be able to check their balance, latest transactions, and outstanding payment proposals as soon as they open the wallet. Also, all screens and confirmation buttons now show the user-selected wallet color that simplifies identifying and keeping track of wallets and transactions.
“We have put a lot of effort in this new release toward simplifying navigation and providing easier access to the most common wallet tools”, the company said in a blog post.
