MultiBit gets a makeover

Bitcoin wallet MultiBit is getting a big makeover. Starting with the MultiBit logo which has been changed and new website design which has been completely redone.

In the coming weeks, more changes will happen to update the wallet application to match the new web design and logo.

At the end of May, MultiBit was acquired by bitcoin startup KeepKey. KeepKey is a bitcoin hardware wallet that allows users to send, receive, and securely store bitcoins offline using their device.

In a blog post today KeepKey wrote that “although we will alter the look and feel of MultiBit, you can be assured that KeepKey will closely follow the principles Jim and Gary wove into their software. At KeepKey, we believe in strong security AND strong privacy. You will continue to see improvements on both of these fronts.”

In addition to the cosmetic changes to the wallet and website, the name MultiBit HD is being officially changed to just MultiBit, dropping the HD at the end. The new name and look will be rolled out in the next release.
