It’s time to once again push the limits of what you can do with the bitcoin in your Liquality Wallet.

No, this is not an April Fool's joke.

To date, users have been able to receive, hold, send, and atomic swap bitcoin since the Liquality Wallet first came out.

So what’s new?

Well, if you’ve ever wanted a native, in-browser Bitcoin experience, it’s finally here!

The Bitcoin Injection feature gives Liquality Wallet users the most convenient way to transact with apps and merchants in BTC. Download the wallet and get started today.

You no longer need to pull out your phone to scan QR codes, or copy and paste addresses and amounts. Your Liquality Wallet will fill out all the details for you - all you need to do is click “Confirm”.

Checkout with OpenNode Merchants in One Click

If you’re a merchant looking to improve your checkout conversions with Liquality Wallet users, you can simply utilize the BIP 21 URI standard. By doing so, you’ll be ready to easily serve the existing 4,000/+ Liquality Wallet users. And by the way, BTCPayServer and OpenNode payment processors are already compatible with Liquality!

Finally, if you’re a developer, you now have the ability to create rich Bitcoin applications that can interact with the Liquality Wallet in ways no other Bitcoin wallet can handle, like signing messages and custom transactions. Check out our playground of test use-cases and read the docs to get started.

Create Rich Bitcoin Applications That Can Invoke The Liquality Wallet

How exactly does Bitcoin Injection work?

The Liquality Wallet extension injects a global API into websites visited by our users at window.bitcoin. This API allows websites to request users' Bitcoin addresses, read data from the Bitcoin blockchain, and suggest that the user sign messages and transactions. Of course, in order for a website to access this information, a user must give permission first.

You may also be wondering why Liquality chose to build software in JavaScript and enable users to manage their private keys in their extensions.

At the time of writing (April 2021), no user has lost any funds when using Liquality software. Our software is free and open source, available for review and contributions here. It is also worth noting that wallets like Exodus, Trust Wallet, MetaMask, and others also use JavaScript and offer browser-based applications. Still, make sure to use caution as there are many fake phishing links, especially on Google search results!

We recognize that JavaScript is less than ideal when it comes to client-side encryption and that browser-extensions aren’t optimized for cryptographic solutions. However, nearly everyone in the industry has access to a web browser, and JavaScript is the 2nd most popular programming language amongst developers. Finally, because it’s a hot wallet, users should not keep more funds in their Liquality Wallet than they are comfortable with.
