Wasabi Wallet 2.0 is a Bitcoin wallet, based on the popular Wasabi Wallet.
Wasabi Wallet has enabled light wallet users to preserve their privacy without a trusted third party. Wasabi 2.0 takes things to the next level by not only making Bitcoin privacy faster and cheaper, but also as effortless as eating over your calorie limit for the day.
Mass Bitcoin adoption is just around the corner.
If this is true, Bitcoin will quickly scale up to fulfill fiat currency’s current obligations. And there is only one way for this rapid scaling to happen: with centralized Bitcoin banks.
Bitcoin’s sudden improvement in acceptability is detrimental to its portability, fungibility and temporarily to its scarcity properties.
Therefore, our goal cannot be anything else but to make Bitcoin ready for mass adoption. To achieve this, we must start with its weakest link: privacy. Wasabi 2.0 may be Bitcoin’s last chance to scale gracefully.
Wasabi 2.0 is a next-generation Bitcoin privacy wallet that will finally bring confidentiality within reach of any Bitcoin user, not just the technically inclined. Wasabi 2.0 may be Bitcoin’s last stand in the fight for becoming “good money.”
In a nutshell…
Wasabi 2.0 is a combination of user interface (UI), user experience (UX) and coinjoin (CJ) improvements.
- Wasabi 2.0 gets a complete UI rewrite with modern, fluent design principles without taking away from the pre-existing feature set of the current software.
- Regarding UX, manual coinjoining will be a thing of the past or for power users only.
- On the CJ front, the long awaited WabiSabi will also make its debut. It will facilitate faster, more cost-efficient collaborative transactions without waste, lay the foundation for payments within coinjoins and open the door for combinations with other technologies.
