TL;DR: The Bitcoin Cash Bchd team released Neutrino, a cryptocurrency wallet on Google Play now available in beta for a test spin. It claims to be a privacy-oriented piece of software, lending tools needed to avoid third-party providers getting ahold of users’ information.
Neutrino Wallet Available in Beta Version on Google Play
“Neutrino is the most technologically advanced cryptocurrency wallet to date,” the blurb on Google Play announced. “Whereas all other wallets leak information about your transactions to third parties, Neutrino uses a new technique called client-side filtering to obfuscate your transaction downloads to better preserve your privacy.”
Lead dev on the project, Chris Pacia, is well-known in the cryptocurrency community, and privacy has been a concern of his for quite some time. As such, Neutrino “uses Simplified Payment Verification (SPV) which provides strong cryptographic proof that your transactions are including in the blockchain. This further eliminates trust in third parties,” the Bchd team insisted.
Instead of being beholden to trusted servers, the wallet “connects directly to the Bitcoin Cash network […] making it much more robust than your typical wallet. All this technology is packaged with a very simple and intuitive UI,” they boast.
The project has been in development since late last year, and its release to the public allows users access to client-side filtering that helps blur fingerprints from transactions, making it so not even the wallet providers know what users are up to.
