Morpheus Wallet Team Interview — A new (NEO) wallet, and much more!

Before I start, the Morpheus Team and I would like to remind you to ONLY download the app from GitHub: https://github.com/MorpheusWallet/beta/releases/tag/4.1-beta-3

As an introduction, what is Morpheus?

The Morpheus Wallet is an all-in-one client side desktop wallet that allows you to store, send, receive and exchange cryptocurrencies as well as monitor and manage your portfolio. In addition, to its uniquely pleasing aesthetics, the Morpheus Wallet integrates real time price charts offering users the unparalleled ability to analyze and asses cryptocurrency price data. Morpheus Wallet also offers fully integrated hardware cold storage for cryptocurrencies, through the popular hardware wallet Ledger Nano S.”

If I’m not mistaken you plan to add other coins in the future as well next to being very focused on NEO and GAS?

We plan to focus on NEO/GAS and the NEP tokens, but we have had a lot of requests to support other tokens such as Eth, LTC and ERC20 tokens and will work to support those later in 2018.”

Why specifically have you chosen to develop NEO/GAS first? Is there any reason for that?

Well, that is a simple answer, I am a long time Antshares/NEO HODL’r and wanted to build myself a wallet that would eventually have all the features/functions of the 4–5 apps/websites I would visit/use every day. I shared the mock-ups and prototypes with friends online and in various chat groups and people were basically demanding I build it. So Morpheus was born. As a company we were attracted to the possibilities for growth on the NEO platform. Features like Neo Identity, Neo X and Neo smart contract open up the possibility for us to develop a lot more than just another wallet by either developing these technologies ourselves, or working with businesses that have developed these API’s to allow users to do much more than simply send and receive digital assets.”

As of this moment, what is currently possible with the Morpheus Wallet?

Current Wallet Features:
• Receive and send NEO and GAS tokens at no cost to the user 
• Securely store currencies through ownership of your private keys 
• Securely login with private keys or encrypted private keys
• Ability to claim and store cryptocurrency rewards (GAS) through NEO ownership 
• Easily and at competitive rates exchange your NEO and GAS tokens for multiple alternative crypto currencies through the integrated Changelly and Shape Shift applications
• Track the price of supported cryptocurrencies and visually display the price history with integrated real time graphs
• QR code integration for ease and speed of use
• Review transactions on NEOTracker.io blockchain explorer
• Integrated Ledger Nano S to easily transfer to and from cold storage

I’d like to point out, next to the wallet features, how neat the wallet looks and feels, a few examples:
