19-year-old Developer at the Forefront of TRON (TRX) Opensource Wallet DApp
TRON has revealed its Opensource Wallet DApp which has been developed by a German developer, Marius Gill, who is just 19 years old. Marius has been programming ever since he was 13 years old.
The opensource wallet DApp is a result of Project Genesis, which had been launched in March this year. Project Genesis was launched with the purpose of encouraging engagement in the cryptocurrency’s community for bringing something new to the cryptocurrency’s ecosystem.
Project Genesis provides a 2 billion dollar bonus pool for active members across the globe which have worked towards implementing ideas for the community.
According to a statement by TRON Foundation, the wallet is a special multifunctional one designed for the cryptocurrency’s network. The special wallet would be able to interact easily and quickly with the accounts of the investors while making sure that their TRX and account data are secured in a cold wallet setup.
The wallet is a lot safer than other digital asset managers with features such as the offline signing mechanism and the hot/cold switch.
Marius was noticed by them when he worked on Programming Contest project. The project made him work more than 12 hours every day. Marius had quit programming for a year before he decided that he would be working on the project.
The young programmer designed an innovative multifunctional wallet DApp based on the cryptocurrency’s protocol that combines cold, hot and watch-only setups. Marius stated that he wasn’t doing the project for financial reasons. He is instead doing it because it means special to him.
When he started working on the iOS project, the 19-year-old programmer didn’t own any iOS devices and was hence introduced to TRON LOAN. Marius was granted a 100,000 USD TRON LOAN for completing the development of the DApp without any hassle.
After winning the award, Marius said:
“The chance of award is less significant to me than getting involved and sharing experiences with peers in the TRON community so that I get more time for test and optimization.”
