IOTA (MIOTA) Launches Experimental Crypto Wallet Dubbed 'Spark'

The IOTA (MIOTA) team has launched the Spark wallet via IOTA Labs. Spark is a low-security, temporary web wallet designed to hold only small amounts of funds for a very short period. In addition, the IOTA team has also released the projects 2020 roadmap, according to a

IOTA Unveils Experimental Wallet

The IOTA Foundation has created IOTA Labs, a new project designed to funnel IOTAs experiments into a tangible product, and Spark wallet is the first solution to be born from IOTA Labs.

The team says the Spark wallet is designed to help IOTA users to hold small amounts of funds for short periods, after which the user burns it.

IOTA Labs is a new project within the IOTA Foundation to funnel our experimentation into something tangible. Whenever we create an experimental app, we will release it under IOTA Labs. Sparks is the first app to be released under IOTA Labs and has served as a testing ground for some new ideas and tools.

The team has hinted that Spark wallet was developed using Svelte, a highly functional Javascript framework which shares none of the limitations of other Javascript frameworks.

IOTA explains:

By specifying an expected amount and timeout on the payment request, we can ensure funds do not arrive on a spent address. When you combine payment requests with a chat system, as would be possible in Trinity V2, you have a frictionless peer-to-peer transaction system.

IOTA 2020 Roadmap

IOTA says it has made significant progress this year, including the creation of Trinity, IRI, individual client libraries, Qubic, and more.

For 2020, the IOTA team has made it clear that it plans to carry out a slew of improvements on its mainnet to boost the networks scalability before Coordicide goes live.

Whats more, IOTA says it plans to implement additional signature schemes in addition to its current Winternitz on ...
