The release of the new Burner portfolio developed by Austin Griffith, director of research for GetGitcoin, was announced today, on November 10, on Twitter. The open source project should aim to drive the mass adoption of Ethereum using sidechain xDAI.
Austin Griffith, a software engineer and Bitcoin enthusiast, said the project will help countries with emerging economies become decentralized using the Ethereum network. He stated in a blog post:
"These emerging markets are where we should focus our integration efforts – that's where Ethereum has the greatest potential for impact on the world now."
He motivated his goal by observing that it is difficult to find important goods in emerging currencies with traditional currencies, as the value of their currencies fluctuates violently. He also said that value exchange is one of the best aspects of the Ethereum space.
The wallet is called "Burner Wallet" and works using the PoA [Proof of Authority] xDAI sidechain protocol to convert tokens from one chain to another. The transaction takes less than five seconds and the costs of gas are practically zero. The post has quoted:
"A mobile phone can send DAI to another in 5 seconds with a simple QR code scan without any wallet downloads, this works on web browsers and users can even send value via messaging services like WhatsApp with a simple link!"
The portfolio is designed for the transfer or exchange of values in day-to-day transactions because a burner is generated automatically after visiting the official website "https://xdai.io". Because the private key is stored in a cookie, it is not secure, so it is advisable to sweep the remaining money in a private key and burn the private key.
A Twitter user, Matt Garnet, commented:
"Are private keys encrypted in the cookie?"
Austin Griffith replied to the comment by saying:
"No. These are the burners, do not put a lot of money in them and burn them when you're done." This is simplicity of use. "
