Trinity started from humble beginnings as a Computer Science summer project at University College London. The project gained traction among the IOTA community, and as it grew and entered alpha testing, the talented team of community developers and designers took full-time positions within the IOTA Foundation. And now, with over $1.8 billion worth of IOTA transacted and over 160,000 downloads across all platforms, Trinity has become a resounding success. With the results of world-leading cybersecurity firms, SixGen’s security audit, the stable, feature-complete wallet has been released in full.
But the people involved in making Trinity what it is today extend far beyond the IOTA Foundation. This is and has always been a community project. We have had thousands of community members tirelessly testing across alpha and beta, submitting bug reports and making feature requests. Others diligently translating strings to allow support for over 25 languages. And others contributing to the wallet’s codebase. Ultimately this is a project that has involved thousands of contributions from thousands of people. The Trinity team is immensely thankful to everyone who has been involved in the project!
Trinity holds two principles at its core: user-friendliness and security. A wallet should be straightforward to use for new and advanced users alike, while securing funds and protecting from external attack. Applying these principles at every stage of the development process has given rise to a wallet that makes generating, storing and backing up seeds and sending and receiving IOTA an extremely simple and secure process.
Trinity is available across iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux. Download it here.
