Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallet Electron Wallet is excited by the launch of its new version of wallet available to be installed on basic feature phones such as Nokia.
After announcing the integration of the Coinshuffle plugin within the system, receiving sponsorship from the news portal CoinGeek and launching the iOS version of the company’s wallet, Electron Wallet surprised us again. It seems that the platform is in a continuous progressive process as Electron Cash lead developer, Jonald Fyookball, promised back in February.
The company is now celebrating its release of the Java Micro-Edition of the Wallet (J2ME) that allows the application to be installed on less-famous and older-style devices such as Nokia.
“Electron Cash published a new wallet: The ‘J2ME’ version of Electron Cash. J2ME stands for Java Micro-Edition,” Jonald Fyookball stated for Coingeek.
“With Electron Cash for J2ME, now users who only have access to basic ‘feature phones’ such as the Nokia 216 will still have access to a real Bitcoin Cash SPV wallet, with all the benefits that come with it, including controlling their own private keys and being able to restore their wallet from a mnemonic seed phrase.”
The move can significantly boost the adoption rate of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) at a global level as there are around 1.3 billion users who own a basic feature phone.
You can find the Electron Cash J2ME version source code on Github. “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 explained.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has a market cap of $10,386,294,168 and is traded at $600.87, up 1.63%.
