Today, we’re happy to finally release our new multi-asset web wallet! You can now send and receive BSV and SFP tokens tokens directly from myPaymail.
First, we wanted to provide a general overview of the wallet and its features. Your wallet can be enabled immediately after you log into the platform by navigating to the “wallet” section inside your myPaymail panel.
myPaymail wallet is composed of vaults, and you can think of them as accounts that can hold multiple types of assets. Each vault has its own transaction history, and you can set up multiple vaults to keep track of assets depending on their purpose, to separate business transactions from personal ones, etc…
You receive assets (BSV or SFP tokens) by connecting a paymail to a vault. All paymails within the platform (including the ones using your own domain) can now be connected to a vault, and you can point any number of paymails to any of your vaults. In other words, a vault can have more than one paymail associated with it, allowing you to receive assets from multiple sources. You can also re-configure your paymails at a later stage, without affecting assets that you’ve already received in your vault.
Last, the myPaymail web wallet uses a Chrome extension called myPaymail Keychain in order to sign transactions and hold your keys. Thus, your remain in control of your keys. The main reason to develop a Chrome extension is to provide a similar experience to Metamask. Also, it is a tool that other websites can use, avoiding the need to install additional software in the future. Our Chrome extension deserves a separate blog post, so stay tuned for that!
Now that you’ve been introduced to the key concepts behind our wallet, we wanted to show you how to get started.
The first thing to do is to install the myPaymail Keychain Chrome extension. You can get it by visiting this link.
Once the extension is installed, click on the icon shown on your browser and follow the instructions to set it up. They include creating a password and backing up a mnemonic phrase to backup your keys.
Now you can navigate to the menu section labelled as “wallet”, where you’ll see the wallet’s admin dashboard.
Click on “Create new vault”. You’ll see some popups from the Chrome extension that you’ll have to accept to proceed. After accepting the requests, you should see a small form in the admin dashboard. Give a name to your vault (e.g. “My Personal Vault”) and select a paymail you want to associate the vault with. Then, click “Submit”.
All done! You’ll now see your vault in the “wallet” page. From now on, you can send BSV and SFP tokens to the paymail associated with your vault.
If you click on “view all assets”, you’ll be directed to a page with the transaction history and buttons to transfer assets out of the vault. You’ll also be able to track when assets were received and see all your token balances.
At the moment of launch, myPaymail wallet offers the following features:
The team has been working hard on this release, and we hope that you enjoy using myPaymail as much as we do. Let us know what you think, we’re always happy to hear your feedback and suggestions!
