Many programmers would be brimming with smiles now, as creators of the Handcash wallet have released a free software developer kit (SDK) known as Cashport.
Cashport is an open source BCH-based micropayments system for Android operating systems and web typescript that can be integrated into a variety of services and was created for programmers who are interested in turning the Bitcoin Cash network into applications and websites.

“We wanted a very easy way for developers and businesses to implement micropayments with zero bitcoin knowledge,” he noted.
The group believes the Cashport system is a great way to monetize the user interactions with bitcoin cash.
Programmers can now focus on building quality content, the group said, while noting that team, developers can go to the Cashport website, obtain some API keys and implement the SDK. After that, “money has never been simpler
