Dash Copay Multisig Wallet, First Step of Evolution, Heads to Alpha Testing

The Dash version of the Copay wallet, the base for the Evolution wallet, has entered its alpha testings phase.

Copay is a multisignature (multisig) Bitcoin wallet designed by BitPay that allows users to set up joint accounts and put funds in control of multiple parties. The Dash Evolution team is working on a Dash version of this wallet, titled Dashpay, as a base for the Evolution upgrade, which will give a clean user-friendly experience and allow some advanced functions such as joint accounts, savings accounts, private cash accounts, recurring payments, and more.

Joshua Seigler, Evolution frontend developer for Dash Core, is pleased with the experience so far:

“Copay has a good reputation as a Bitcoin wallet, none of that solid feeling or great UX has been lost from what I’ve seen.” One last review of the $Dash copay wallet before we send it to our alpha team for testing. pic.twitter.com/is0kcxO6IB — Chuck Williams (@chuckwilliams37) September 12, 2017

The wallet will undergo rigorous testing to support a large user base

The wallet is undergoing rigorous alpha testing in order to be ready to easily support a large amount of users later this year and beyond. According to Chuck Williams, head of UI/UX development for Dash Core, the experience inherited from Copay has been stellar:

“Implementing the Copay wallet for the Dash network has been a tremendous learning experience for our team. While there is some obvious technical debt in the inherited codebase provided by Bitpay, the functionality provided for multiplatform HD and multisignature wallets is probably one of the most user friendly experiences available from an open source bitcoin wallet.” @seiglerj and I are having fun with multisig on $Dash copay testnet. pic.twitter.com/pBg0x5rWme — Chuck Williams (@chuckwilliams37) September 12, 2017

Williams projects that by the end of the year, as many as 15,000 could be using the Dashpay wallet:
