Alex Pasfield, who is also known as ‘Plain Crypto’, started a platform that lets the BCH and BTC community vote on significant subjects by ‘putting their money where their mouth is’ — in a literal meaning. Bitcoin Voice is an app that reveals public messages attached to blockchain transactions that are sourced from live data. The website declares that it “may be utilized as a verifiable voting record of blockchain users weighted by their transaction amounts.”

Pasfield claims that he coded his first programme at the age of nine. It was his dad who had sparked his interest in cryptocurrencies and bitcoin. Alex remembers riding a bicycle with his father who started to explain to him how programming languages work, and he understood the process.

My dad had been teaching me programming at the time and then gave me insight into uncensorable, distributed, peer-to-peer, permissionless, global money systems — And given he and I have somewhat of a libertarian streak, this resonated with me immediately... I was working with some of my smart friends who were building solutions in this space, and we saw the debacle that unfolded with the censorship on the /r/bitcoin subreddit that prevented the community from freely discussing how to evolve the Bitcoin protocol.

The Bitcoin Voice programmer underlines that there is only one client where you can vote using public label values, which is the Bitcoin Unlimited Cash reference client. Pasfield supposes what is really needed is wallet developers incorporating the public label voting system into their wallets.

Alex has been exploring different scaling problems and aims to propose decisions to figure out how scaling can best be solved for the different coins out there. The young developer also claims that the reason he created the Bitcoin Voice platform is because “coin holders don’t have any official, verifiable voice to influence the coin that they’re invested in.”

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
