BitBox Base: User Interface

Our goal is to create a seamless experience with no technical setup. We are using the free and open-source BitBox App to manage the Base. This allows us to provide:

  • automatic discovery of the BitBox Base
  • secure pairing and fully encrypted communication
  • interactive setup wizard over a secure channel
  • direct integration of the fully-validating Bitcoin full node into the BitBox App
  • an integrated Lightning wallet in the BitBox App
  • reliable connectivity between App and Base over multiple networking channels
  • a reduced attack surface of the BitBox Base by not running a web server

The BitBox App is maintained in its own GitHub repository:
