Mmemonic Word Lists

Bitcoin Cash is meant for people all over EARTH. Most of those people don’t speak english. That’s why today we’re releasing wordLists so you can generate mnemonics in 8 different languages to help spread $BCH to people all over the planet.

wordLists

BITBOX.Mnemonic now has a wordLists method which returns an object w/ the following keys:

{
    chinese_simplified: [],
    chinese_traditional: [],
    english: [],
    french: [],
    italian: [],
    japanese: [],
    korean: [],
    spanish: []
}

Each of these keys contains an array w/ 2048 words in that language. 4 BITBOX.Mnemonic methods now accept that wordlist as their 2nd argument and will create and validate mnemonics in those languages.

The methods which now accepts a wordslist argument are
