Wallet Client/Server MVP
An MVP concept implementation of a "wallet" functionality. I developed the functional requirements specification (see ./ for an IT company. The idea was to get a high-performance, low-latency solution allowing web clients to perform bulk payments during a betting game. The task consists of a wallet server and client. The wallet server keeps track of users' monetary balance in the system with separate balances for different currencies. The client emulates users depositing and withdrawing funds.
