ColoredCoins desktop wallet application for digital currency issuance and management.


BankBox is a desktop client of the ColoredCoins protocol on top of the Bitcoin blockchain.
It utilizes ColoredCoins full-node, which in its turn is dependant on Bitcoin-Core, the Bitcoin reference client.
It downloads and maintains a copy of the blockchain locally, coupled with parsed ColoredCoins assets layer of ColoredCoins colored transactions - so it keeps the protocol true peer-to-peer with no dependance on external servers.

Note: A ColoredCoins transaction, just as any other Bitcoin transaction, require some Bitcoins to be transferred with it. Since the BankBox gives full control to the user, it's up to the BankBox client to finance the ColoredCoins transactions.

If you would like to deep dive to our programmatic Node.js (and browser) API for issuance and transfer of digital assets, go to Getting started with ColoredCoins SDK.
