Better Transaction Capabilities
Users can avoid sending errors, and keep better records of their transactions, by using their email address instead of bitcoin addresses. For YardWallet, it is a first – this feature has never been seen before in an on-chain, mobile Bitcoin wallet. Using emails is optional and can be toggled on and off for each payment if users want to be anonymous. Email addresses also are encrypted when embedded in transactions for privacy. Since YardWallet is HD, Bitcoin addresses are not reused. This provides even more privacy and avoids serious security issues.
YardWallet’s main daily spending wallet is already very safe, protected by multiple layers of security including unlock patterns and transaction passwords. However, it’s YardWallet’s ‘Open Vault’ option that brings the kind of security not usually seen on mobile wallets. This is a true multisig wallet better for storing long-term and larger amounts of bitcoin. It is separate from the daily spending wallet, with a new seed phrase. Users keep two keys and YardWallet stores one (therefore, YardWallet can only approve transactions and not make them).
