Arctus Decentralized Zero-access Wallet

Arctus was a project that was developed under a startup accelerator that later developed into a free and open-source project. The application is a web interface that allows you to create a cryptocurrency account for over 80 currencies and 12 blockchains, all while retaining your private key on the client-side throughout the whole process. The key pair is generated via a simple login form of a username and password, thus ensuring that it is easy to remember and can be logged into from any computer.
