Initial beta release of my instant web wallet for Bitcoin Cash :

I talked to a few people about getting started with BCH, but they had issues setting up a wallet to accept payments.

The first time you visit, it creates a random wallet address for BCH, so you can receive funds and send them on.

The other problem is how to accept payments as a small business – a cafe, restaurant or food stall.  Basically you need a simple way to know which order/product/sale matches up to which payment – who has paid for what.  I achieve this by having a temporary BCH address to accept the payment for a given order, and then forward it on to the main vendors wallet as soon as payment is detected.

All the keys are kept on the client side, in localStorage on the local device, and transactions signed within the browser.

Ill be extending this to look nice and work well on mobile devices – now that money is purely digital, all those heavy point-of-sale hardware can be replaced by a nice web app running on your phone.
