A cryptocurrency wallet is a software program that holds your private and public keys and interacts with various blockchains enabling you to send and receive digital assets, including cryptocurrencies, stablecoins and NFTs (non-fungible tokens). Many wallets rely heavily on browser extensions to process transactions and interact with dApps (decentralised applications). Given the amount of value users hold in their crypto wallets, it is crucial to ensure that these extensions are reliable and secure.

However, testing a wallet can be a complex process due to the various technical, security and privacy-related challenges that must be addressed. This session will explore the complexities of testing a cryptocurrency wallet browser extension.

We will discuss the various types of tests that must be performed, including functional and non-functional tests. We will also cover the tools and techniques that can be used to conduct these tests effectively. Additionally, we will examine the importance of ongoing monitoring to ensure that the extension continues functioning correctly with the release of new browser versions and functionalities released in the wallet extension.

By the end of this talk, attendees will have gained a deeper understanding of the challenges and best practices for testing and monitoring a wallet. This knowledge will be valuable for anyone involved in the development, testing, or maintenance of such extensions.
