Bitcoin gains an open source client

developer effort and as an open source project this relies on
volunteers. So the news that an engineer has developed BitCoinJ, a
Java client that implements the simplified payment verification
mode proposed by Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of Bitcoin, is

BitcoinJ isn’t an official Google project but one undertaken in the
20% of time Google allows its staff to spend on personal
projects.”
