A Metamask-like Wallet For Bitcoin Cash Has Been Released - Bitcoin Cash (BCH) News. Saturday, October 6th

A Metamask-like wallet for Bitcoin Cash has been released

The wallet is called Badgerwallet.cash

Developers of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has just rolled out a beta version BCH wallet for Google’s desktop web browser, Chrome, in the form of an extension. This new wallet is called Badgerwallet.cash and it shares some similarities with Ethereum’s Chrome extension wallet Metamask. According to the announcement, the wallet can be tested by activating the developer mode in the browser.

Created by members of Spendbch, Bitbox, the Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP) and Bitcoin.com, the new BCH-light client for the aforementioned browser seeks to become “the gateway into the world of BCH-fueled tokens and decentralized applications.”

In order to test it out, users will have to download the latest release from the official website, then activate the developer mode on Chrome by clicking the menu icon and selecting Extensions from the Tools menu. Once the new tab is open, they will have to look for a switch in the upper right corner that says “developer mode” and activate it. Next, they have to drag the downloaded .zip to the same extension page, and the software will be installed.

The software can be viewed full-page, or in a smaller window, and upon launching for the first time, a mnemonic phrase consisting of 12 words is provided to be written down. After confirming the order of the words, the wallet opens.

Since it is still on beta phase, there are several bugs and other issues users may find when using it. For example, incoming and outgoing transactions could not be recorded at all, and any attempt to send money for less than a penny will result in a failure. At its current state, users can only create accounts and send and receive BCH, but support for tokens is an upcoming feature for the Chrome desktop wallet, with Wormhole tokens to be the first addition.
