Finding a mobile wallet for Bitcoin Cash has been pretty difficult so far. Although the ecosystem has only been around for some time now, one would expect such a wallet to exist by now. One of the world’s most prominent Bitcoin wallets has enabled BCH support already. Bitcoin.com’s Bitcoin wallet for IOS is now fully Bitcoin Cash compatible. A big development for this popular altcoin, that much is certain.
Finding a mobile wallet supporting your favorite altcoin isn’t easy. This is especially true when it comes to Bitcoin Cash. Although most wallet providers can easily support this fork if they want, most still don’t. That is pretty surprising considering support for BCH has grown in all other areas. More mining pools are on board, exchanges have finally listed it, and the value seems to be holding its own quite well. A mobile wallet is more than overdue.
Even More Bitcoin Cash Support on iOS
To access the BCH portion of this iOS wallet, simply set up a new wallet and move the slider to Bitcoin Cash. It is that simple, and it does the job quite well. The app works for both iPhone and the iPad, depending on which device you prefer to use. Do keep in mind there is no built-in exchange functionality at this time, although this may be integrated in the future. Anyone who used this app prior to the fork will now also have access to their BCH coins if they hadn’t been claimed yet.
Although there are two other iOS wallets for BCH as well, it is good to have more options. Both Free Wallet and BTC.com have their own respective clients for Bitcoin Cash as we speak. A few options to choose from is never a bad idea in this regard. It is also a validation of how much this altcoin’s ecosystem has grown. For a currency very few people gave a fighting chance, Bitcoin Cash has done pretty well.
In the end, it is good to see some mobile wallet provides step up their game. It remains a mystery why some other major providers have not enabled BCH support so far. Whether or not that situation will change in the future, remains to be seen. Mobile solutions are the future of cryptocurrency, that much is evident. It is a safe, secure, and convenient concept for novice and advanced users alike.
