smidgen – an IOTA Multisignature Wallet

The security of our users is very important to us. For this reason, we are excited to be able to announce the release of smidgen, an IOTA Multisignature wallet. Multisignature wallets add an extra layer of security. By using an IOTA Multisignature wallet, we can create addresses which require multiple seeds for each transaction, each seed owned by one or multiple persons. smidgen is Open Source Software and is licensed under the MIT license. Right now, smidgen is in its final beta stage. smidgen is beta software and supports many other handy commands, ranging from address generation to balance checking. You can install smidgen with:
npm install -g smidgen
