BitBoxBase: User interface

Our goal is to create a seamless experience with no technical setup. We are using the free and open-source BitBoxApp to manage the Base. This allows us to provide:

  • automatic discovery of the BitBoxBase
  • secure pairing and fully encrypted communication
  • interactive setup wizard over a secure channel
  • direct integration of the fully-validating Bitcoin full node into the BitBoxApp
  • an integrated Lightning wallet in the BitBoxApp
  • reliable connectivity between App and Base over multiple networking channels
  • a reduced attack surface of the BitBoxBase by not running a web server

The BitBoxApp is maintained in its own GitHub repository: digitalbitbox/bitbox-wallet-app
