Now we will have a view on creating the crypto wallet. It involves the following procedures:
- Designing an apt UI for the Crypto Wallet.
- Developing Smart Contracts for the core functionalities.
- Creating Admin Panel, User Dashboard.
- Smart Contract Auditing and Testing.
- Integrating Smart Contracts, front end, and back end.
- Testing and Bug Fixing in the Wallet.
- Releasing Beta Version or Mainnet Deployment.
Cryptocurrency Wallet Development Process
To initiate a crypto wallet we should have proper planning and follow a set of basic protocols which emerge a proper setup to the client expects the flow of the process is listed in detail,
Designing UI for Crypto Wallet
User Interface plays a main role as it projects how user-friendly it has been designed to operate. It includes all the features added and how fast the process happens while using the applications. For example, we can say Trustwallet, a known popular crypto wallet has good customer support, the wallet has its native token and nearly 160k coins are accepted on any blockchain. These are the main notes of this wallet. Similarly, we can also develop this kind of wallet with more additional advantages as per user desire.
Coding Smart Contracts for the Core Functionalities
Smart contracts are just programs that run on a blockchain that executes a set of functions when predominant conditions are met. In a crypto wallet, digital assets are used and controlled through a smart contract with the help of given coded functionality. It gives users more control over their assets
Creating Admin Panel, User Dashboard
Admin Panel: The entire activity of a wallet is managed by the admin. so we need to create a login to access the wallet which requires basic information of the user.
User Dashboard: The list of user’s tasks will be displayed in the user dashboard like Balance, Outlook, Transaction, Cashflow, and so on. We can also add extra features depending on the user's needs.
Smart Contract Auditing and Testing
The Audit and Test process for a smart contract is to examine and analyze the smart contract’s code to check whether the smart contract functions effectively. This mainly focuses to reduce the errors in code, security vulnerabilities, and testing involves the individual functions how they process while using the wallet.
Integrating Smart Contracts, Front end, and Back end
As the whole trading process is done with the Smart Contracts, So in an application, the Frontend communicates with the browser where the user operates, and the Backend communicates with the webserver here both the activities are integrated with the smart contract for the whole crypto wallet to work. This is one of the important sections in developing a wallet.
Testing and Bug Fixing in the Wallet
Due to a large number of codings involved, there might be a bug while testing the wallet
To overcome these bugs, bug tools like Backlog, Bugherd, etc are used to record, track the bug and improve the quality of the product.
Releasing Beta Version or Mainnet Deployment
In simple terms, the Beta version is the experimental use of the application to test the features. This beta version will be made available to a set of community people or to all to test the new features available in the application. During the beta version, the users can provide their feedback to the developers. Once the application is ready now it will be deployed for everyone to use.
