This release focuses on Atomic Swaps for BTC, LTC, and QTUM. Both own nodes and Electrum are supported. Swaps can be performed peer-to-peer directly by sending the swap token via any secured communication channel or initiated via an atomic swap marketplace built-in into our desktop wallet. Worth to notice that the desktop wallet became more usable and even more eye-pleasing in general.

Features:

  • [desktop wallet] Atomic Swap with own node for BTC, LTC, and QTUM
  • [desktop wallet] Atomic Swap with Electrum for BTC, LTC, and QTUM
  • [desktop wallet] Decentralized Atomic Swap marketplace for BTC, LTC, and QTUM
  • [desktop wallet] When connecting to a random node, fastest peers are continuously selected automatically
  • [desktop wallet] Transactions can be searched by a transaction ID, kernel ID, address, contact or comment

Improvements:

  • [desktop wallet] Our logo just became a pixel bit better, can you find the differences?
  • [desktop wallet] Wallet approximate synchronization time is displayed nicely and much more accurately along with the remaining percentage
  • [desktop wallet] Creating or restoring a wallet can be processed by a specific peer
  • [desktop wallet] Transaction statuses are displayed in a nicer way

Fixes:

  • [desktop wallet] Address comment became editable

Known limitations:

  • Inconsistent transaction statuses when running two or more wallets that use the same wallet.db file cloned manually
  • If multiple wallets are restored from the same seed phrase, transaction history and addresses will not be shared among the wallets

Points to mention:

  • In case a mobile wallet is connected to a random node and the user has both mobile and desktop wallets which are using the same seed phrase, the funds sent to the desktop wallet won’t appear on the mobile wallet. If the desktop wallet is running a local node, it will see funds sent to both wallets. The reason is that the local node (integrated into the desktop wallet) always monitors the blockchain for UTXOs related to the seed of the wallet. The mobile wallet does not run a local node and thus can only monitor transactions sent to its specific SBBS addresses. Of course, no funds will be lost in any event.
