Coloredcoins.org announced 25th of august that it has released their open-sourced version of the Copay wallet, which allows users to receive, send, and issue digital assets based on Colu’s new implementation.
Copay is an open source multisig wallet developed by Bitpay which allows a robust and multi-platform Bitcoin experience. The reasoning behind using a Colored Coins plug-in for Copay instead of creating an entire wallet was to allow a quick release of the Colored Coins features to the community and to build on top of a stable and well-adopted open-source project – what made Copay a perfect fit. This wallet, together with ColoredCoins.org Block Explorer (open source code soon to be released on Github) and API, is a fully open source Bitcoin 2.0 platform. The main goal is that the community will find original use cases and build more Colored Coins platforms using that code, so this new layer of digital assets on top of the Bitcoin Blockchain with interoperable tools will become a reality.
ColoredCoins.org is happy for the opportunity to work with Bitpay and hope both parties will continue explore the potential of add-ons for wallets in order to improve the digital asset experience for users.
“Copay was built as an open-source platform so the community could build upon, and innovate with, true bitcoin wallet technology. It’s great to see a wallet that supports both bitcoin and Colored Coins within the same application.”
Tony Gallippi, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder of BitPay.
Colored Coins Copay add-on will allow any developer to easily add a new “Assets” tab in the bottom of his Copay wallet without any code. This was achieved by using AngularJS plugin module, which allowed us to leverage the wallets capabilities and the Colored Coins API.
By using Copay, ColoredCoins.org is not only allowing users to start experimenting with digital assets, but also showcasing new features never seen in the Colored Coins space. Users will be able to store and manage digital assets with a shared wallet in addition to having a multi platform wallet that can be used on any device – so your digital assets can easily be accessed through your PC and your smartphone in one unified experience.
