Bitcoin OP_UXUI #4 - Craig Raw from Sparrow Wallet
We're back to talking design on bitcoin. I had to take a break because of some health issues but the design space in bitcoin is evolving so fast this year that we just had to come back to work. For the forth episode, we had the pleasure to talk to Craig Raw from Sparrow wallet, one of my favorite projects in bitcoin. Great for beginners to learn more about the protocol, and amazingly useful for more advanced bitcoin users that want full visibility when it comes to UTXO control. We talked about the origins of the Sparrow Wallet project, contributions, priorities, how much information to reveal to the user, privacy practices and a lot more. Enjoy it!
