Blockstream Green is set to become a window into the Bitcoin infrastructure that Blockstream has been building over the years, and integration with the Liquid Network is a key part of our plans. In addition to Green’s advanced Bitcoin services, the app will soon make it easy for Liquid users to securely store and transact their Liquid assets on the go.

 

Both casual and power users of Bitcoin will find a powerful feature set behind the new UI of Green:

  • Hardware wallet support: For additional security, Android users can make use of a Trezor or Ledger hardware wallet to take their keys offline.
  • Connect to your own node: Specify a full node for SPV, in order to minimize trust.
  • Privacy-focused: There’s no need for documents, KYC, or personal information when setting up an account. Just an email address is required which is for wallet recovery purposes. It also supports connections over Tor.
  • Multisig Two-Factor Authentication: Green wallets protect the wallets of users from hacks and thefts making use of application-based Two-Factor Authentication.

 

Blockstream Green can be downloaded on Google Play and App Store. The Green apps’ open source code: Green Development Kit and libwally, can also be accessed on GitHub.
