Last summer, Bitcoin.com launched a developer suite so Bitcoin Cash (BCH) programmers could have access to a slew of resources, tools, and software development kits (SDK). At the time, the web portal contained three key tools for blockchain programmers: the Bitbox SDK, REST, and the GUI platform. Now, Developer.Bitcoin.com hosts two more SDKs so developers can build applications with Badger Wallet and the Simple Ledger Protocol (SLP).

Build Killer Apps With Bitcoin.com’s Developer Platform
Bitcoin.com believes that BCH has the potential to change the world and provide people with economic freedom. On account of this conviction, our web portal provides resources, tools, and other helpful services so individuals and groups can dive right into this innovative industry that’s transforming our world. After providing a wide variety of resources for retail investors and newbies, last July we launched Developer.Bitcoin.com in order to provide assistance to the BCH development community. The service includes a bunch of tools that leverage the BCH blockchain to build decentralized and censorship-resistant applications. Initially, the software included on Developer.Bitcoin.com consisted of Bitbox SDK, REST, and GUI tools, but we’ve added two more SDKs to the mix.
The first is the Badger SDK which can act as a gateway to the world of BCH apps. Programmers can utilize the Badger API and provide website visitors with the ability to allow apps to request their permission to send BCH, send tokens, or authenticate with the Cash-ID protocol. Badger Wallet has become the BCH version of Metamask as it allows connections to a variety of BCH applications and tokens. For instance, it supports SLP tokens and has been easily integrated with popular platforms such as Satoshi Dice and Sideshift. The Chrome and Firefox-based Badger software has the ability to process micropayments and smart assets, fuel decentralized exchanges, and power distributed autonomous organizations. Badger is also connected to the Cash-ID protocol which can give users the ability to sign in to web pages and BCH-based applications and unlock content using their private keys. Developer.Bitcoin.com also hosts Badger React components that make integrating Bitcoin Cash into any project much easier.
