XMRWallet is a new web wallet that allows you to send and receive Monero (XMR) instantly.
Currently, the only other web wallet is MyMonero, operated by Riccardo Spagni, one of the lead developers behind Monero. XMRWallet is a project built from scratch with the goal of adding additional features to what is offered by MyMonero. The XMRWallet developer, Nath Roy, also hopes the project will help Monero to become more decentralized by offering a greater selection of web wallets to users.
Nath said that he has been a long-time user of MyMonero and although he loved the service, there were several features he wished were available. When building XMRWallet, he wanted to incorporate some of those missing features.
XMRWallet is a fully client-side wallet offering transaction speeds of around 5-10 seconds, said Nath. He elaborated :
“Xmrwallet.com can send transactions significantly faster than MyMonero. In some cases, sending with MyMonero can take up to 10 minutes or even time-out the browser. Our transactions take 5 to 10 seconds.”
XMRWallet has got more than just speed on its side, though. It is also available in 10 languages, including English, French, Spanish, Japanese, and more. Users will be able to import their seeds to XMRWallet through both MyMonero seeds and original Monero seeds. XMRWallet itself does not receive the seed from the user. Users will have access to multiple seeds at the same time on XMRWallet by opening new tabs.
XMRWallet was created so users could transfer Monero without needing to download or compile any software. No registration is required; you simply click on ‘Create Account’ and a wallet seed will be automatically generated for you. Once you’ve made a note of your seed (you’ll need this to log in every time after), you’ll be able to start using your XMRWallet.
The wallet is auto-updated, showing a constant feed of the XMR/USD balance in a user’s wallet at any given time.
Users have the option to send out their entire Monero balance thanks to the MAX feature offered by XMRWallet.
In the future, XMRWallet is looking to provide users with seamless access to forked coins, such as XMC, XMO, and the soon-to-come XMV. The source code behind XMRWallet will also soon be uploaded to GitHub, so anyone can view it.
In addition to being faster than MyMonero, users will also be able to sync an entire wallet from block 0 to XMRWallet completely free of charge.
XMRWallet offers an alternative way of sending and receiving Monero. It’s free, it’s fast, and it’s finally here.
