Detailed description

CryptoCurve prides itself as the mother of all digital wallets that allows for you to buy, trade, send, exchange and invest in ICOs and cryptocurrencies. Additionally, the portfolio is set to allow for crypto pools and monitoring of cryptocurrencies as an official wallet under the Wanchain Blockchain.

In essence, the CryptoCurve wallet platform will dedicate its functions to easy crypto funds management, market analytics, ICO investing, trading and security. CryptoCurve additionally provides for new user experience regarding cryptocurrency spendingwhile on the go.

CryptoCurve’s mission is to accelerate the positive global impact of blockchain technology through an ecosystem of user-experience-driven products and programs that help individual investors, software developers, and corporate entrepreneurs achieve their goals with blockchain technology.

Problem

User Adoption Barriers:

Privste and public keys

  • Key storage/management are not meant for non-technical users. Storage methods vary widely from platform to platform -- one preferring mnemonics, another passwords, and another JSONv3 format.  This leads to lost keys and dormant wallets with no recovery options.

Secondary security meausres

  • Base wallet implementations lack secondary security mechanisms. These protect transfers, sensitive data, and transactions, while creating peace of mind. 
  • Standard mechanisms used in financial trade include: Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), biometrics (fingerprint and facial recognition), dual-linked devices (web and mobile), secure passphrases and One-Time Passwords (OTP).

Transfers are cumbersome 

  • Transfers are a terrifying task for new and veteran users, using complex public keys. When a large sum is involved, this is particularly daunting. 
  • Keys are complex and not designed for ease of use. To service the financial sector, we have created an abstraction for account numbers by leveraging beneficiaries. This allows for comfort, ease of use, and a secondary authentication step.

Frraud detection

  • There are basic security mechanisms that can be put in place for fraud detection, aside from AHV, CDV, or secondary security. Other possibilities exist. 
  • Accounts will be whitelisted or blacklisted for transfer, a wallet identified via public consensus will be triggered for investigation. Machine Learning tools will be implemented for fraud detection. Wallet trust factors will be implemented based on age, transfer history, and the interconnectedness of a wallet to trusted sources. 
  • An index of all accounts will be built with each having a rating based on age, total transfers, value transferred, and whether they interact with other highly-rated accounts. This score will be made transparent for the purpose of identifying accounts.

Fiat to cryptocurrency

  • First-time cryptocurrency purchases are often cumbersome and include bank transfers, clearing times, and banks not allowing for cryptocurrency-related charges or deposits. Being able to get in and out of cryptocurrency is a critical hurdle for cryptocurrency to reach mainstream

Solution

To address user adoption, we have architected the following high level solutions: 

  • Key Management System 
  • Two Factor Security 
  • Dual Linked Security 
  • Beneficiaries 
  • AHV and CDV 
  • Account Fraud Detection System 
  • Secure Wallet Vetting (with certificate and stamp) 
  • Consolidated UI for Wallet, Explorer, Web, Mobile, Online, and Offline systems 
  • Multi-asset tracking 
  • Portfolio Management 
  • ICO Pooling 
  • ICO Hosting 
  • DEX and CEX integration.

To achieve the above, we created a set of developer tools. Instead of keeping these tools in house, we opted for open source to provide these tools to the community. These tools include: 

  • Interoperable Hosted Nodes 
  • Interoperable Offline Wallets 
  • Interoperable Online Wallets + Interoperable Explorers 
  • Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Mapping for Consolidating APIs 
  • Replicated End-to-End Testnet Environments 
  • Consolidation and Documentation of Exposed APIs

Features

Security Features:

Key storage flexibility
The Curve Wallet keystore vault provides both inexperienced and expert-level investors options for powerful, secure key storage. New users may prefer that the Curve Wallet stores their keys, while seasoned investors may choose customized controls for keystore files. 

Beneficiaries
A beneficiary is any user to whom another user sends coins or tokens. One significant example of our security standards involves beneficiaries that Curve Wallet users will be able to add, remove, and manage. (A beneficiary must be added before payment can occur.) Beneficiaries will have privatized trust scores that allow for more informed decision making. 

Multi-sig capability
Standard wallets require only a single user to confirm a transaction before it is sent to the blockchain. In a multisignature wallet, multiple users must confirm a transaction. This allows for greater security when a large pool of funds is owned by a number of different users. The Curve Wallet will support multisignature via smart contracts: when a user with sufficient privileges initiates a transaction, other users with approval rights will receive a push notification.

Mobile OTP
Multi-factor authentication is a recommended best practice for protecting sensitive data. Providing an extra layer of authentication and verification, multi-factor authentication goes beyond the basic username and password security model. With the release of our mobile app, we will enforce OTP and in-app validation of transfers. While we allow for Two Factor Authentication (2FA), it can be cumbersome; OTP will push an authorization request to the user. If the user approves, the transfer will go through.
