Today I am going to review an open source wallet DAapp SteemWallet-
Inroduction of steemwallet
Github Repositery: https://github.com/roelandp/steemwallet
Steemwallet is an open source wallet for steem blockchain founded by @roelandp and launched on 18th December 2018. This wallet gives an easy to use UI and fastest steem transcation processing. The steemwallet app is made for users of the Steem blockchain so that they can perform their steem transaction safe, secure and faster. This wallet provides wallet transfer through QR scanner and that is an amazing feature of this. @roelandp is well know name in steem blockchain and this wallet is great development by him. Steemwallet is available in Android and iOS both platform.
Steemwallet is different and amazing as its built with 3 foundations-
How to start with Steemwallet?
- Download and install this wallet app in smarthpone. After the install you can see this app icon in your phone (as shown in below image)
- Open the app and home page will open like this-
You can create steem account using "Create Account" option and if you already have account then use "Add Account" option.
I have added my account and can see the STEEM and SBD balance of my account. Transation history is also showing here.
Using the Send we can send steem or SBD to another steem wallet and in the same way we can received as well.
Send and receive though QR code is an amzing feature provided with this wallet. It saves time and amazingly easy to use. Its like just scan and done.
In Setting option there are various option-
Node- This is steemit by default however there are other options available.
Currency - Can change currency of your choice and it will show the balance in the selecte currency.
Theme - Diffrent Color themes available select.
Create Account- Can create wallet account using this option.
Buy Steem- We can buy steem using this wallet.
Factory Reset- Through this option we can reset the wallet.
While creation of wallet it ask to create password and enable or disable touch if (depending upon phone feature). For the password it also show the password difficulty level.
My liking about the Steemwallet
I downloaded this wallet yesterday and sharing my review after almost a day time. I used this app mutiple times in a day time so experice all aspects of the wallet- Here is what I liked about it-
Speed-It takes fraction of second to open everytime. Everytime I just tap the icon and its ready.
Usually wallets supports single account but this one provides option to manager mutiple account.
QR feature is nice one and makes easy to use for send and receive. I dont like copy paste of wallet address and for me this is awesome.
User Interface (UI) is smooth and super easy.
Finger touch access is provided if its available on phone. Sign in & send transactions with touch id makes it more convenient.
Widget confugiration is also provided
What I did not like about steemwallet-
I did not find any issue with the functionality of the wallet but since I need to give the honest review so few things I want to mention which should be considered-
- I could not found any support of help section in wesbite and app both. Its good that app is very much stable and working fine but in case of any problem arise then there is no way to ask for help and support.
- Now a days social media is popular platform to be and connect with more poeple worldwide but I see that Steemwallet do not have any social media presence. They dont have any social media handle in their website. Steem is social media blockchain but this wallet is not in social media and it looks strange.
While my usage experience of almost one day I did not face any problem and app is stable all the time. I am impressed with few innovative features like biometric, QR codes and widget configuration option. This wallet is very easy to use and user can keep a track of all the steem transactions through this. Wallet is safe and scure and runs on offers mutiple layer of security. It uses AES 256 encryption for security which is nice. Undoubtedly @roelandp has done a great job in building this wallet to process steem transations with ease but He needs to share more awareness about it. Promotion through Social media and its presence would be a good idea to bring more users onboard. In terms of development I would like to see some airdrop support in future.
I rate Steemwallet 4.5 out of 5
I have shared snapshots from the wallet app and if its not from app then source is provided
So Would you like to try the Steemwallet app now? Try it out and its worth it.
Thank you for reading this post.
