CEO of Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver, has expressed that users will soon see a major update come to the website’s crypto wallet. At this point, the actual details are not available, but many analysts believe that this is one of the most anticipated changes in the market to date. Ver announced the upcoming changes on the YouTube channel for the website, where he was accompanied by Corbin Fraser and Akane Yokoo.
During the video, Ver expressed that the update would be out when the video was released, which would mean January 20th. In the video, he described the update by saying it is the “biggest ever to the Bitcoin.com wallet.” The group discussed the listing of features for the wallet, which will be a r/BTC subreddit post, along with a video to elaborate.
Another integration coming to the wallet is a crowdfunding application called Bitbacker.io. Right now, there is already work going into the integration to ensure that Bitbacker will be placed “directly into the Bitcoin.com wallet.” This program is supposed to be an alternative to former program Patreon, which banned multiple political and social entities.
One user on Reddit said that they hope the following changes are made with the Bitcoin.com wallet:
- “Spend and replace built right into the wallet”
- “Strong privacy thanks to Coinshuffle”
- “improving the transaction creation, signing, and broadcasting speed”
During the interview, one of the topics of conversation was the way that there seem to be more scam artists attempting to conceal their own identity behind influencers in the crypto world, like Roger Ver himself. As a result of details like this, Ver’s name has been falsely used in the theft of over $6 million by scammers.
Ver has held his stance that BCH is the only crypto that seems to have a “peer-to-peer electronic cash system for online payments,” which he reiterated in the Bitcoin.com video. Advocates of Bitcoin on Reddit have accused Ver of attempting to wrongly direct new investors and market Bitcoin cash, comparing the tweet to a “borderline scam.”
