One use case of the web wallet is to create a bunch of wallets, load them with BITG, and distribute them to friends as a quick and convenient way for them to start using Bitcoin Green.
Another use case is for individuals looking for offline BITG storage solutions. They can send BITG to a newly created wallet and store it on an encrypted USB drive.
This is the first application built using bitcoingreenjs-lib, and will pave the way for more sophisticated applications such as our upcoming mobile wallet and crowd-funding platform.
