HandCash, the Bitcoin Cash wallet is designed for ease of use and enables NFC payments. The HandCash’s beta version was released by HandCash Tech on February 10th. The updated version of the app released on June 2nd. The update allows users to simply use handles in transactions, to specify the address.

One of the best features of the HandCash wallet is the NFC feature- Near Field Communication payment system. This feature lets people in proximity to transfer cash via the app. No specific wallet address or QR code is required.

The current update takes this one step further. With this update, the user can conduct transactions simply by mentioning the receiver’s handle. The transaction can be done within a couple seconds. This was the entire premise of this app – to make the using of this app resemble the act of handling cash.

Since February, the HandCash app was in the beta phase as the developers wanted to fix the problems. The developers also want the users to take heed of the fact that, while this app runs on the mainnet, it is still considered a BETA while they get paperwork approval.

Some users have experienced issues relating to the login when trying to install this app. However, this has been resolved.

The wallet can be back up to the user’s Google drive, making recovery very convenient. The wallet does not store any user details or funds.

” This looks pretty much like square cash except yellow. Nice job though. “

“First transaction for the Philippines!! Post your countries and transactions. HandCash global . Great job on the new application!”

Federico Pecoraro, CEO of Italy-based crypto-company, Chainblock, made waves in the cryptospace after he suggested that Italians were shifting to cryptocurrencies owing to the country’s growing economic problems. The 2008 financial crisis hit the Italian economy badly, largely due to the huge public debt accumulated after years of excessive public spending.

According to Federico Pecoraro, the state of affairs offers an opportunity for many people and businesses to benefit from using decentralized money. In what is the most newsworthy bit of his take, he said that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) could be the cryptocurrency that would fit perfectly as a real global coin for daily spending, despite the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) is more likely to emerge as a better store-of-value. He added,

“We’re proud to support it on our products. Indeed, our clients have the opportunity to buy BCH through any of our services.”

Pecoraro also spoke about how Chainblock used the crypto-winter to develop new products and expand its customer base. He revealed that by the end of 2018, Chainblock recorded a 156% increase in transactions and a 144% increase in new users. Federico Pecoraro told Bitcoin.com,

“We love small businesses that want to accept crypto payments but we want to enable as many merchants as we can with a strategic market approach. Our goal is to provide affordable and scalable solutions for both big and small shops and spread real cryptocurrency mass adoption. We plan to enable 5,000 merchants to accept Bitcoin payments.”
