A new release of Zcoin's desktop wallet now includes full onion routing integration and a security fix that will go live upon an anticipated hard fork in the cryptocurrency's blockchain.

Zcoin release a new More TOR-Friendly desktop wallet

The engineers behind the security arranged Zcoin wallet have quite recently discharged another variant that should take protection to a considerably larger amount.

As indicated by the official statement, the new wallet will incorporate all the more flawlessly with Zcoin's framework and enable clients to utilize onion directing (referred to conversationally as "TOR) for account verifications.

Zcoin's authentic declaration takes note of that one of the security fixes relies upon a hard fork that will occur on square 78500 in around two weeks.

The new wallet application ought to enable clients to arrange a TOR intermediary straightforwardly as opposed to having to "snare" onto the program (as they normally would) by utilizing certain onion directing applications like AdvOR, which can get carriage in a few examples.

We believe that update marks a major milestone in locking down Zcoin's fundamentals and privacy. With this implementation, Zerocoin will work even more smoothly with code which is easier to audit. There are a few more changes that will be noted by users, like re-index time, which is 7-8 times faster now and verification time per spend, which has decreased by integrating additional data in a spend transaction. Some bugs have been squashed as well,” said Reuben Yap, COO of Zcoin
Mobile users will not be affected by the update since the official Zcoin wallet is designed to run only on desktop-based systems.

It seems that the strongest selling point of this update is the TOR integration although users will also be able to enjoy faster transaction speeds and a couple of bug fixes.

However, not all is rosy in the world of privacy coins. A recent event involving Zcoin has reminded us that human error continues to be a significant reason why people experience breaches and losses.

In mid-December last year, a Zcoin user was scammed out of $70,000 after someone convinced the person to transfer 1,000 XZC while purportedly helping with the setup of a Znode.

While it’s great to see developers keep the security of their applications tight, users must also make sure they don’t get complacent when using technologies.


I have been a developer for last five years working experience in different technology, apart from this I loved traveling, blogging and exploring the crypto world.
