Mockup of the Send Section
  • Automatic conversion to fiat (initially USD). To inform the user of the value of the transfer / balance.
  • Default viewing of transactions as bundles, rather than changes to individual addresses. This has caused some confusion to novice users.
  • Transaction queues. This feature will prevent 2 transfers from being intitiated at the same time, and instead queue up the subsequent transactions, to prevent invalid transactions.

Expert Mode — note the subtle change in background colour, and multiple new features exposed (please ignore the vertical spacing — this has been compressed to show the new features)
  • Two factor authentication and transaction pin code. And perhaps a wallet password with storage of an encrypted seed, to be decrypted at the point of use.
    Wallet security is the priority, and this is a sensitive topic with many opposing views, so we are looking to explore every option to ensure the safety of your funds.
  • A modular design with scope for new plugin development.
    The first of these plugins is for market charts and data, allowing easy viewing of important market information, and a variety of currency/timeframe chart combinations.
