The Dark Wallet project, is a simple wallet designed to be easier to use for people who aren’t tech-savvy. There is hope that this will in turn accelerate the currency’s rate of adoption around the world. The wallet will be open-source and free to use.
Unlike many current Bitcoin wallets, which can be difficult to download and cumbersome to use, the Dark Wallet will be designed as an easy-to-install plug-in that sits discreetly on users’ Chrome or Firefox browsers. Made for Windows, Mac, and Linux computers, Dark Wallet would move most of the energy-sucking process of insuring there’s only one of each bitcoin in circulation, and that they aren’t spent in two places at the same time, to separate servers.
Dark Wallet should tentatively be ready sometime in January or February of 2014. A crowd funding campaign is also set to launch in October.
