Bitcoin firm Coinbase wants the industry to start working on creating the Bitcoin app ‘ecosystem.’
In a blog post, the company informed that it has started thinking over the future of the Bitcoin apps and what it would look like.
Further, Coinbase which is focused on making it easier for people to buy and sell the cryptocurrency Bitcoin in several countries, brought out a list of ideas on this issue and what could make an app, ‘a killer’ one and they are:
- Bitcoin-enabled browser
- Mobile micro-payouts service
- BTML (a new markup language) or an IDE (integrated developer environment) for developers
- Decentralized e-commerce platform
- Remittance app
- B2B cross-border payment service
- P2P data sharing
- Reddit but with Bitcoin
- Interest-bearing app
- Machine-to-machine payments protocol
The company also said that every participant in this discussion had a different point of view on what the first killer app for Bitcoin will be.
But the company also noted that this highlighted the power of an open value transfer protocol and further opined that this virtual currency doesn’t just work on the principle of improving the existing payment and settlement systems alone, but that it can enable a whole suite of applications, consumer behaviors and business models that couldn’t exist previously.
For an emerging market, such brainstorming sessions are needed
