What did Blockaction Provide?
BlockAction.io provided user the facility:
- To create the most secured wallet.
- To perform blockchain transactions with new or existing wallets.
- To request payment from another wallet or user.
- To view real time transaction status.
The BlockAction team had been working hard to provide a simplified solution to blockchain transaction to increase the ease of cryptocurrency. Currently, we support Ethereum and Bitcoin. We planned to add more tokens in subsequent release.
How did Blockaction provide the most secured wallet?
- Wallet creation was done on client side.
- Password selected and private key generated were ‘for your eyes only.’
- A user could go offline at the time of creation of wallet and connect back to the internet when password is chosen and private key is downloaded or saved somewhere safe.
- BlockAction.io was multi-device supported. It couldn’t be accessed through desktop, mobile phone and tablets. A user didn’t need to download any application on desktop or mobile to create wallet or perform transaction.
- Password selected and Private key generated were ‘for your eyes only’. BlockAction did not store either of them because we wanted to keep your cryptocurrency (Ether and Bitcoin) safe with you as the owner of private key of your wallet.
How BlockAction simplified blockchain transactions?
- All BlockAction transactions were publicly visible on the Ethereum and Bitcoin blockchain.
- You did’t need to wait for link in email to view the transaction status. He could view it real time on BlockAction.io.
- You did’t need to visit another website to view the balance, it was available in just another button.
- You could send or request receive payments in Eth and BTC without disclosing your identity.
- It was fast and secured because all transactions were encrypted with SSL certificate.
- You could access your wallet anytime, anywhere with any device (mobile, tablet, computers) without downloading the entire blockchain.
