Electron Cash Wallet Now Available for Basic Feature Phones
This past February news.Bitcoin.com reported on the firm Coingeek announcing funding the Electron Cash programming team. Since then, the bitcoin cash (BCH) centric wallet Electron Cash has seen a bunch of development with Coinshuffle integration, and a new iOS version of the wallet. Now another version of the Electron Cash wallet has launched which can run on basic feature phones (Nokia-style) adding more versatility to the BCH ecosystem.
Electron Cash Can Now be Installed on Nokia Style Feature Phones
Last February the Electron Cash lead developer, Jonald Fyookball, announced the development team would be funded by the firm Coingeek, and Electron Cash would launch a bunch of new features over the course of the year. So far the team has launched a new iOS version of the wallet and added a Coinshuffle plugin to the client’s desktop version. Now, this week the Electron Cash team has released a Java Micro-Edition of the wallet (J2ME) which makes the client available to feature phones much like the popular and less sophisticated Nokia phones.
“Electron Cash published a new wallet: The ‘J2ME’ version of Electron Cash. J2ME stands for Java Micro-Edition,” the Electron Cash lead developer explained in an interview with the publication Coingeek.
Over 1.3 Billion Feature Phone Users Can Now Use the Bitcoin Cash-Centric Wallet Electron Cash
Bitcoin Cash proponents are excited to see an Electron Cash client for feature phones as the wallet could help spread adoption in areas where basic phones are more prevalent. These areas would include Asia and Africa, and according to Counterpoint research there are 1.3 billion feature phone users worldwide.
The Electron Cash J2ME version source code is available for review on Github, explains the development team. “The original python code was rewritten in Java, mostly from scratch, in order to build this wallet. It is currently published on GitHub as an alpha release and is currently being reviewed and tested,” Fyookball emphasized.
