Not terribly long after the release of the Copay beta via the web interface at Copay.io comes the news that the official Copay application for Android devices has hit the Google Play Store.
The application is essentially the mobile version of the service, if you haven’t already guessed (if you have, gold star on your forehead).
It’s a unique bitcoin wallet system that ups security by allowing wallet creators to require cosigners in order for bitcoin holdings to be spent or otherwise transmitted.
It’s open source, meaning anyone who knows what they’re doing can review the code, and already, members of the bitcoin community are finding themselves pleased with Copay.

The project is the brainchild of Atlanta, Georgia-based BitPay, a bitcoin payments processor that’s been making a name for themselves by contributing heavily to the community in multiple ways. One of those ways is via software development, and Copay isn’t the only thing BitPay has brewing.
The company has also developed an open source system called Bitcore that allows developers to build applications that interact with the real bitcoin network.
If you are so inclined, you are welcome to view and download the application right from the Google Play Store by following this link.
