Green Wallet Review

The Blockstream Green mobile wallet is built by Blockstream the company that also constructed the Liquid sidechain which is supported from within the wallet. The wallet is a digital wallet designed to store, send and receive Bitcoin.

Design

The mobile wallet is nicely themed in the classic black and green Blockstream colors. As you open the app you will learn quickly how to use it and what functions it possesses through its clean design. So will the opening page after unlocking the app just be the sending and receiving page. This gives you a nice and simplistic view of your account balance. Besides the non-user-friendly features of the Bitcoin blockchain and Liquid sidechain, any user should be able to understand how to use the wallet in seconds.

Improvements 

Like every other Wallet out there, The Blockstream Green mobile wallet has flaws and missing things. The flaws that I point out are of course based on my personal opinion and I would like to point out that they don’t always have to be a hindrance to anyone.

Being one of the first wallets to use the Liquid sidechain it would be great to see a function within the app that would let you convert your BTC to L-BTC, this so that you can fully use the Liquid network from inside of the wallet. Although the functions of sending and receiving work perfectly it would be nice to see something like a payment request function and/or a contract book in which you could add friends and family to whom you want to send some

Conclusion

The wallet is an easy to use and simple clean designed wallet for the use of Bitcoin. It also offers sidechain support which is a great plus. The wallet functions perfectly how it is supposed to but could use some more extra functions. Overall,  the Blockstream Green mobile wallet scores a good 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.
