Blockchain has recently offered to reveal the first look of its new Bitcoin wallet.
The announcement comes months after the company raised $30.5 million in seed funding from some of the top-tier investors, including Sir Richard Branson, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Wicklow Capital. Prior to that, it was already popular for being an all-in-one service platform for its users, offering them all sort of technical information at one place.
At the time of funding, back in October 2014, Blockchain had discussed its plan to utilize the money for growing its product and engineering team. However, the company had remained silent on new developments, especially after being stuck inside a tornado of criticism for its temporary security issues. And now with the new launch, it is finally looking towards to come out of its exile.
The new Bitcoin wallet, as been reported, brings some new features for the Blockchain’s 3.8 million wallet users. It includes an improved account management and an uncomplicated user interface, alongside other additional services. All these new features can be accessed only as an alpha user, upon registering with Blockchain’s program.
In his comments to CoinDesk, the company’s co-founder Nic Cary said that they are looking to receive feedbacks from the registered alpha users. “We’ve set up the alpha program to be a community driven development project, he added. “We’ve been soliciting feedback on what users want out of a future wallet in a live environment.”
Blockchain will be referring the users’ reviews to make amendments in the current wallet program, before announcing a final launch.
