Blockchain officially launches their new HD wallet

Back in December we gave you a sneak peek at the upcoming Blockchain.info bitcoin wallet, which is an HD wallet with a whole slew of new features.

Today, Blockchain has made an official announcement that they have launched the new HD wallet to end-users. In the new announcement, Blockchain highlights some of the areas of focus of the new wallet:

#1. A simplified wallet recovery and backup feature to keep users firmly in control of their funds

#2. A new security center to help users take the necessary steps to secure their wallet

#3. The friendliest and simplest user experience of any bitcoin wallet

As it stands now, the new HD wallet is a voluntary upgrade option, where you can choose to continue with the current wallet or upgrade to the new HD wallet. Blockchain says though eventually all users will need to make the switch to the new wallet. Some of the new features include:

  • Custom funds management
  • Dashboard with balance overview
  • Did You Know tips for new users
  • New Activity log Improved transaction feed

You can sign up for a Blockchain wallet today here or if you’re an existing user when you go to login make sure to click on the “try the new wallet version” link to upgrade.
