We haven’t asked much of bitcoin wallets so far — mainly we were happy if they worked as described and didn’t lose our bitcoins.
That’s all changing though, with developers trying to stand out from the crowd and add functionality way beyond just sending and receiving money. Airbitz is one of them.
Paul Puey, Airbitz
In the first official Automata podcast episode, Airbitz CEO Paul Puey talks to Daniel and Jon about opening up the wallet’s APIs to third-party developers, letting them turn it into a multi-purpose keychain to manage your identity, other accounts, and more.
With its “edge security” model, Airbitz wants to transform from a mere bitcoin wallet into a complete decentralized data security platform.
Puey also talks about Airbitz’s novel approach to fundraising and investing. Does it work? Could it become a model for other startups in this space? Listen to the episode to hear all the details.
