A crowdfunding page has been launched for the anarchic Dark Wallet project.
Described on the indiegogo crowdfunding page as a “light browser wallet relying on an independent bitcoin implementation with out-of-the-box security and privacy features”, Dark Wallet is scheduled for release in early 2014.
The campaign launched yesterday (31st October) and has already reached over 40% of its goal to raise $50,000 for the development of Dark Wallet.
Those involved in the project include Amir Taaki, developer of Libbitcoin; Mihai Alisie, editor in chief at Bitcoin Magazine; and Cody Wilson, who is behind the 3D printable gun component company Defense Distributed.
Dark Wallet asserts that it needs to raise $50,000 in order to complete the development and testing of its product.
The indiegogo page reads:
“We are interested in scaling up the bitcoin infrastructure in an intentionally subversive and empowering direction- taking bitcoin just where it has been threatening to go. Towards an integrity of values, and a neutrality promoted by anonymity and a resistance to censorship. Software can stand for something.”
The page shows that one person has already donated $5,000 in return for the ‘Patron Pack’, which includes “complimentary swag” and a flight to Europe for one weekend as the guest of Amir and Cody.
