Blank Wallet Testnet Release
We’re excited to announce that our first public iteration of Blank Wallet has finally arrived! As of today, Blank Wallet is functional on test networks and available for download.
Test networks simulate the Ethereum network and offer users an opportunity to experiment before using real assets. As a result, it’s crucial to not import your Ethereum wallet or send any real assets to your testnet version of Blank Wallet.
We’re comfortable with the first public version of the wallet, and there’s still much more to come! We’re waiting for one key component before going live on the Ethereum network: our third-party public security audit. You can read more about our public security audit here.
This first public release includes:
- A web extension wallet integrated with privacy pools, allowing anonymous deposits and withdrawals
- Full ERC-20 support, allowing deposits and withdrawals of any ERC-20 token
- Web 3.0 compatibility allowing connectivity to DApps
- An improved user experience and user interface
- A swift and frictionless sign-up process
- No data collection whatsoever
The Blank team will be hard at work as we wait for the conclusion of the audit. In the coming weeks, we’ll continue to fine-tune the wallet and press on with our roadmap. We’re ecstatic to finally share our first public version, and we’re just getting started!
The Blank Wallet testnet version will be available for download on the Google Store later this week. In the meantime, follow these instructions to download the wallet:
- Download and unzip the file here
- Add the file to chrome://extensions/
- Turn on “Developer mode” in the top right
- Click “Load unpacked” in the top left and select the folder titled “dist”
- Follow the instructions after the setup screen appears
Once you’ve got the wallet installed, you can get testnet $ETH here:
- https://goerli-faucet.slock.it/ — receive 0.05 $ETH after completing captcha
- https://faucet-goerli.status.im/donate/[address] — get 0.1 $ETH once
- https://faucet.goerli.mudit.blog/ — receive various amounts of $ETH after verifying social profiles.
EIP1559 enabled networks may experience issues with gas price calculation. EIP1559 is a part of the upcoming London hard fork. This change affects the way that transactions function and how gas prices are calculated. The London hard fork is set for release at the end of July but is already functional on some test networks. Blank Wallet does not currently support EIP1559.
Your Feedback Is Key
We value your input, so we’re asking users to provide feedback on their testnet experience. You can use the form here to report bugs or simply suggest areas of improvement.
We greatly appreciate any kind of feedback and will be taking all of your observations on board. Feel free to attach your $ETH address to the form, as we’ll be selecting the most useful pieces of feedback and rewarding the contributors with $BLANK tokens!
With your continuous support, we can continue to polish the wallet and build the best possible product for the future.
About Blank Wallet
Blank is the most private, non-custodial Ethereum browser extension wallet.
Blank allows the user to easily interact with privacy smart contracts on Ethereum to hide the amounts and the origins of cryptocurrency held, in a decentralized, non-custodial, and frictionless manner.
Blank solves the problem of privacy in crypto transactions. Each time you want to make a withdrawal, Blank will create a new wallet address for you with the amount of crypto that you requested. This address originates from the smart contract where everyone’s funds are pooled. All of this is achieved using cryptographic proofs to ensure that the user cannot be linked with the original depositing address.
With crypto transactions increasing, on-chain transaction privacy is being highly discussed to keep you safe from exposing yourself. Blank has developed a system that adds the ultimate protective layer to your crypto transactions while facilitating every function that other wallets offer.
Anyone can easily install Blank and start reaping the privacy benefits in no time at all. Besides the smart contract functionality, Blank wallet offers a higher level of privacy due to Tor integration. Upcoming functionality includes DeFi web3 integrations as well as support for Metamask Snaps Plugins to allow for seamless connectivity and usage.
Reclaim privacy on your Ethereum transfers. Go Blank.
