Development of a desktop crypto wallet Blockchain

The desktop crypto wallet is installed on the user’s computer and is designed to manage digital assets. With its help, cryptocurrency payments become as convenient and affordable as online purchases using a regular credit card.

At the same time, it should be noted that technically the cryptocurrency is on the blockchain. A crypto wallet stores only public and private keys that provide the user with access to assets, and can be connected to several networks at the same time, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. That is, it gives a person the right to use a part of the total amount of cryptocurrency that is in the blockchain.

What is a desktop crypto wallet

What is a desktop crypto wallet

Desktop wallets are a type of cryptocurrency wallets that are installed on a PC. They can be developed for a specific operating system – Windows, Mac OS or Linux, and are considered one of the most reliable ways to store digital currency.

There are two types of desktop crypto wallets:

  • Heavy – provide for downloading the entire history of transactions, and can take up more than 200 GB of hard disk space. They are decentralized because they are not tied to any particular node and contain their own copy of the blockchain.
  • Lightweight – store only a part of transactions and connect to third-party servers that store the main part of the blockchain. They take up much less space, but at the same time, they are more centralized. At the same time, private keys, passwords, and seed phrases in such wallets are stored on the client side, thereby achieving a high level of security.

Desktop crypto wallets are considered more reliable than browser ones. This is due to the fact that the surface of possible attacks on them is limited by the vulnerabilities of operating systems, and phishing is completely excluded. At the same time, desktop wallets are much more functional and, with the implementation of the appropriate functionality, can work even without connecting to the Web.

Stages of developing a desktop crypto wallet

Stages of developing a desktop crypto wallet

Creating a cryptocurrency wallet for PC is a complex process that involves a whole team of specialists:

  • UX-designer – develops a strategy and roadmap for project implementation to achieve optimal business results.
  • Project Manager – organizes the work on the project and is the link between the customer and the technical team.
  • UI designer — develops the visual design of the crypto wallet.
  • Frontend developer – implements a functional user interface using programming languages ​​and frameworks.
  • Backend developer – programs the logic of the wallet and is responsible for its integration with blockchain networks.
  • QA engineer – performs testing of the project functionality.

To develop such software, different technologies can be used, the choice of which often depends on the goals and needs of each individual project. Most often, to ensure maximum functionality and scalability of the wallet, AVADA MEDIA uses Python, Java, PHP, C/C++ programming languages ​​and their frameworks.

All production can be divided into several successive stages. Let’s consider the main ones in more detail.

Step 1. Preparation and planning

Before proceeding with the production of a crypto wallet, preparatory work is carried out. At this stage, the customer’s brief is carried out, the market and potential competitors are analyzed, after which a project implementation plan is drawn up.

Step 2. Development of technical documentation

The software documentation includes all technical specifications and project parameters. It describes the features of the implementation of the functionality, algorithms, APIs, integrations, as well as technologies that will be used in the production process. Also, at the stage of preparing the documentation for the crypto wallet, the estimated budget of the project and the timing of its implementation are formed.

Step 3. UX Design

UX design, or user interaction design, involves creating a functional and attractive cryptocurrency wallet interface with a convenient navigation system. At this stage, prototypes of the main pages of the project are created and CJM is being worked out – the logic of human interaction with the software, starting with authorization and ending with the implementation of the target action.

Step 4. Wallet Design

UI designers develop a graphical shell of a cryptocurrency wallet, taking into account its display on devices with different screen resolutions.

User interface design includes:

  • selection of optimal fonts and color palette;
  • creation of illustrations and animations;
  • development of basic elements such as charts, buttons, forms and sliders;
  • logical placement of objects on different pages of the application.

The main task of the designer is to help the user quickly and easily understand the interface and understand how to use it.

Step 5. Technical development

Programming is one of the longest labor-intensive and lengthy stages of development. It can be divided into two parts:

  • Frontend is the creation of the outer side of a crypto wallet, based on a ready-made design layout that the end user can interact with.
  • Backend is the development of the server part of a cryptocurrency wallet, which contains the entire logic of the project. The backend is hidden from the eyes of users, but it is he who is responsible for working with internal data and operations, such as sending and receiving payments, paying for goods, and so on.

Despite the fact that different specialists are involved in the development of the front-end and back-end and different technologies are used, they closely interact with each other: the client part sends a request to the server, then it is processed by the back-end and returned in a user-friendly format.

Step 6. Quality Assurance (QA)

After the development is completed, it is important to make sure that all the functions of the desktop crypto wallet work correctly, it is user-friendly and provides a high level of security for cryptocurrency assets. This is exactly what QA-engineers do – quality assurance specialists.

There are several stages of testing:

  • MVP testing – minimum viable product;
  • Alpha and beta testing;
  • Testing before release.

At the last stages, in addition to technical testing, the usability of the wallet is also checked – how user-friendly it is, and the compliance of its project design with the initial plans. As a result, after deployment, we get a project with an intuitive interface and a minimum number of errors.

Step 7. Technical support and development

After deploying a crypto wallet, the technical work on it does not end. This is due to the fact that users may discover hidden bugs that were not revealed during the testing phase.

In such cases, the developers determine the cause of the problem and promptly eliminate it. In addition, the first months of using the wallet show what can be improved in it to make it even more convenient and functional. Such improvements are carried out as part of the development of the project.
