Disclaimer: On November 15, 2018, the Bitcoin Cash chain bifurcated into two chains. There is now a network called – Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV) – and the company/wallet/infrastructure provider mentioned in this editorial has chosen to support the BSV chain. Sending Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to a BSV wallet/address or vice versa can lead to financial losses.
Cashpay: A BCH Exclusive Wallet Focused on Increasing the Use of Bitcoin as Cash
The development team from the website Cryptonize.it have launched a new bitcoin cash (BCH) centric wallet that allows users to purchase anything online using BCH. The beta application Cashpay was released this past weekend and was announced on Twitter and BCH focused Reddit forums. Moreover, the Cashpay platform also allows users to donate to their favorite charity like @eatBCH for example with just a few simple clicks.
“We’re proud to present Cashpay, a bitcoin cash exclusive wallet focused on increasing the use of bitcoin as cash and supporting community charities,” explains the co-founder of Cryptonize.it this weekend.

Cashpay’s Beta Release is Available for Testing on iOS and Android
The Cashpay developers explain they wanted to build an intuitive user interface that is easy for users to transact with BCH. The wallet’s beta version is available for testing and can be downloaded on iOS and Android devices. The Cashpay developers have also published a video explaining how to purchase anything online using the BCH-powered wallet. The team details they have some “exciting new features that are currently in the making” and one of them will be a ‘Spend & Replace’ service.
At the moment the developers say that Cashpay is still in its earliest stages (beta) and individuals should not put large amounts of BCH on the wallet. Cashpay explains that for now, people should treat it like any hot wallet but the developer emphasizes, “to be clear, you are the only one who has access to your keys and funds.” At the moment the wallet’s codebase is currently closed source but will be made available in the near future.
