Bitcoindevkit Android
Demo Wallet



The Android Bitcoindevkit Demo Wallet (we're calling it the Devkit Wallet for short) is a simple testnet Bitcoin wallet built as a reference app for the bitcoindevkit on Android. It is purposely lean on Android-specific bells and whistles in order to keep the focus on bitcoin fundamentals and the bitcoindevkit API.

The repository is built to help newcomers to the bitcoindevkit by layering complexity slowly while not adding too much UI polish to the app.

The repository works in the following way: multiple branches are maintained in parallel, each of them focusing on a version of the app.

  1. the docs branch is mostly empty, and is used for building this website
  2. the ui branch builds the basic design and UI without any functionality
  3. the simple-wallet branch builds a simple bitcoin wallet which implements the core functionality one would expect from a wallet: create addresses, send, receive, display transaction history, and wallet recovery.

Each of those branches has a documentation page associated with it.
