wallet app enables transfers without needing bitcoin address, a Bitmain Technologies owned bitcoin wallet application has enabled a new feature that allows users to send bitcoin directly to anyone in their phone’s contacts list, without first having to ask them for their bitcoin address.

Since the wallet is an HD wallet where addresses automatically change with each transaction, it was possible to add this feature. notes that phone numbers are encrypted before they are stored on the servers so never knows a user’s phone number, or who their contacts are. Rather, through encryption, is able to match wallets, create new addresses for each through the HD feature, and complete any given transaction.
