Blockstream launches a wallet compatible with the Liquid sidechain

The Blockstream company Blockstream has announced the launch of a mobile wallet: Aqua. It is compatible with Liquid, Bitcoin’s sidechain (BTC).

Blockstream offers a crypto wallet

Blockstream recently announced the release of the Aqua wallet. It calls it a „singlesig wallet created so that anyone can get started with Bitcoin and Liquid“. Blockstream often stands out by being particularly critical of the „big“ altcoins, which is why the range of cryptomoney products compatible with its wallet is reduced. Users will be able to store BTC, Liquid Bitcoin, Tether (USDT), L-CAD and other Liquid-compatible assets.

Blockstream has also signed a partnership with Wyre to simplify payments directly from the wallet. Users will be able to purchase encrypted cash directly with their debit card and Apple Pay. Bitcoin Fortune also plans to gradually add other payment methods.

What about Blockstream’s other wallet?

This new wallet from Blockstream has a size limitation: for the time being, it is only available on iOS. This is undoubtedly one of the reasons why Blockstream will continue to develop its other wallet, Blockstream Green, which is compatible with Android. The latter is also aimed at „users who want more control and privacy options, such as TOR“, according to the company.

Blockstream also announces that some of Aqua’s features will be integrated into Blockstream Green, including multisig wallets. This is one more pawn for Adam Back’s company, which is becoming an increasingly important part of the Bitcoin ecosystem.
