With a token plugin, architecture developers from any of the emerging token platform can plug their tokens into Badgerwallet.
For now, the team will be adding support for SLP and Wormhole tokens. If you are a developer or a geek, follow the project on Github. The good news for testers is that they can create as many accounts with mnemonics from the drop-down menu and continue with the transactions.

The wallet in total is a game changer and will help us with the future decentralizing web. It is good even though it has some quirks to neglect since the app is in beta phase. Additionally, the wallet will gain more traction after it adds token support. However, Cardona tells that the wallet will go live by next week.
Apart from this badgerwallet, there is Centbee wallet developed by an African startup. Centbee can send and receive BCH using mobile phones and is gaining a lot of traction.
