The new patent filed by the US crypto trader Coinbase says its users will be able to deposit and take out Bitcoins directly from their electronic wallets. The currently used payment services do not secure users’ private keys.
The new system offered by Coinbase assumes the use of a master key that encrypts private keys and for signing transactions. In case there is any doubt as to the personality of the user, the system can halt the transaction.
The new system also has an API key. This enables other sites to set up their apps based on this service.
