Crypto adoption has been slowed down by insecure and user-unfriendly wallet solutions. If a user wants to be his own bank and take over the responsibility to securely manage funds, an easy to use but secure solution is needed. Based on the experience we gathered from our previous tasks working for large financial institutions we strive to offer the highest possible accessible level of security to the community.
AirGap is an open source mobile wallet that allows users to easily onboard on an air-gapped way to dealing with your crypto transactions. Even though security and user experience often result in trade-off decision between one or the other, we’ve spent a lot of effort to achieve what we call “accessible security”. We believe that security alone is not enough if crypto adoption should reach the masses, but a solution also needs to be easy and understandable to use.
With this proposal we want to provide to ZCash users a complete integration into AirGap, so that users can transact their ZEC's securely using an air-gapped approach.

The team behind AirGap is composed out of 8 mobile security engineers, UX designers and frontend developers. We've been developing and securing mobile banking applications of various Fortune 500 financial institutions for the past 5 years and also had an involvement in various Blockchain projects in the ecosystem. With AirGap we want to provide this knowledge and expertise to the open source community.
An estimation for the integration is 4 months, this will include a security audit of the added codebase and the release of all apps in the stores.
|Development integration in airga-coin-lib, AirGap Vault and AirGap Wallet||70%|
|Internal security audit||11%|
|Community communication and management||4%|
|Developer documentation and support||5%|
All of the developed code will be licensed under MIT (which is already the case for the project today).
The preliminary roadmap describes the outlined milestones of this proposal in more detail.
