Latest news about Bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies. Your daily crypto news habit.
At Bitcoin.com, our team is all about spreading the benefits of peer-to-peer electronic cash and our flagship wallet is a testament to our team’s passion. Bitcoin.com’s noncustodial crypto wallet recently upgraded and now offers a new payment link feature that allows anyone to send bitcoin cash by email, and even social apps like Whatsapp, Facebook, Slack, Telegram, and Instagram.
Just recently the Bitcoin.com Wallet added a number of new features in the latest 6.10.3 version release. The Bitcoin.com Wallet is a noncustodial bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin (BTC) client that also allows users to store SLP-based tether USDT stablecoins, and Simple Ledger Protocol tokens as well.
In the latest edition of the Bitcoin.com Wallet, our software development team has made it much easier to send transactions in a few different ways. On November 24, the BCH proponent David Bond (@hellodavidbond) tweeted about the Bitcoin.com Wallet’s new “Send Anywhere” feature.
“The Bitcoin.com Wallet now allows you to send [bitcoin cash] the same way you’d share a link, or meme. This is awesome,” Bond tweeted.
With the new Send Anywhere feature from the Bitcoin.com Wallet, sending BCH gifts during Christmas or during the Chinese New Year has never been easier. In order to leverage the new Send Anywhere feature, Bitcoin.com Wallet users need to upgrade to the latest 6.10.3 client version.
After depositing some funds into the BCH wallet, simply press “send” to create and send a shareable link. In addition to sending to any BCH wallet by scanning a QR code or sending to one of your own BCH wallets, the client offers a choice called: “shareable link.”
Following pressing the “shareable link” tab, the wallet directs you to the page where you enter the amount of bitcoin cash you want to send. With my test wallet containing $2 in bitcoin cash (BCH), I simply pressed “send all,” and pressed “continue” to finalize the transaction. After pressing “continue,” the Bitcoin.com Wallet will create a URL link with the bitcoin cash that can be sent using nearly any application on the web.
You can send the shareable link via text message, email, Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, Slack, Telegram, and basically anywhere you can share a link. Now, remember, you probably want to send the link privately, rather than sharing it in public, as anyone with access to the link can scan the funds.
After the creation of my $2 BCH payment link, the Bitcoin.com Wallet gave me a choice to send it via a myriad of applications on my device. Since this was only a test, I sent the bitcoin cash to myself via SMS text message, and instantly received the shareable link.
This is an example of the payment link that I sent to myself as an experiment via text message. In order for someone to access the funds, they simply need to scan the QR code using their Bitcoin.com Wallet. Of course, the link shown in this screenshot has been used when I finished this test.
Opening up my Bitcoin.com Wallet version 6.10.3, I selected the little scan QR icon on the top right-hand side of the application, which is located next to the notifications bell icon. I simply scanned the payment link’s QR code, and my $2 worth of bitcoin cash (BCH) was instantly added to my wallet.
Another cool thing about the Bitcoin.com Wallet’s Send Anywhere feature is that if the recipient does not deposit the funds, the user can simply reclaim the bitcoin cash any time they want.
The latest wallet version still gives users the ability to safely store multiple crypto assets including BCH and BTC, offers a portfolio breakdown, the ability to hold stablecoins, and the capacity to purchase and swap coins in a matter of minutes as well. With our secure and super fast Bitcoin.com Wallet, the latest Send Anywhere feature makes sending cryptocurrency to anyone worldwide extremely easy.
