How does this work technically and how is it better than other centralized services that store your bitcoins:

  • Blockonomics doesn’t store any bitcoins and uses split key generation for distributed model of trust. More Information
  • Neither the sender nor blockonomics can get access to bitcoin since they only have part of the private key
  • If recipient doesn’t redeem the coins in a week, sender can get refund of the coins

The usecases of this service include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Send bitcoins quickly using a email address, without going to and fro asking for a bitcoin address
  2. Gifting bitcoins to friends/family
  3. Sending/Gifting bitcoin to groups of people or mailing list. You can generate multiple bitcoin addresses and sent BTC to all in one transaction
