Beta wallet: How to receive and send Bitcoin

Waves allow you to hold and transfer Bitcoin on its blockchain. This works through a so-called Multigateway approach: Bitcoins are sent to a user's deposit address available in the Waves wallet and after the deposit the user receives a Bitcoin token (wBTC) on the Waves blockchain. Every single Bitcoin token is backed 1:1 with a real Bitcoin.
