Iguana Multi-Coin Wallet Update #23
It is another update from the Iguana team with some good news for those who can not stand waiting but finally try Iguana in action.
We have released the 0.3 version of the Iguana wallet GUI. But this update will contain more a brief resume about what we have come to.
Features in Iguana GUI now:
- Full Node
- Iguana coins syncing
- Lite and Native Nodes (disabled)
- Add coin(s)
- Ref. currency (32) rates to coins
- Receive coins
- Send coins (breaking)
- Global fee settings (BTC only)
When we got the first desktop beta applications, Iguana GUI team with the help of our community discovered some bugs related to account creation and login flows. Gladly, we fixed them all, reworked or upgraded the old ones.
New Implemented Major Features In Details
- Full Node
- Lite & Native Nodes (disabled)
- Nodes Selector (disabled)
For security sake, we decided to release with Full Mode option enabled and Lite and Native disabled. The tests on the GUI level and desktop application level warned us about their instability. To switch on back Lite and Native buttons are our next priority.
- Coin syncing
The missing feature for displaying progress on syncing coins in Iguana mode is there. Now it shows the percentage of database download status. Moreover, we added labels so that a user can understand his assets states in seconds.
WARNING! We discovered that Iguana may get crashed once a user tries to sync two coins at the same time. It depends on user's machine configuration and power. Make sure, you sync one coin at a time or have enough computer resources.
15 Iguana Full Node Coins
Please, have a look and find what coins have issues with the GUI and Iguana core, and you will see that 1 out of 15 coins may work buggy. The rest were tested, though a kickstart may help to finalize coin syncing or another attempt for a transaction sending.
- Komodo (KMD)
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- BitcoinDark (BTCD)
- Dogecoin (Doge)
- Litecoin (LTC)
- Digibyte (DGB)
- GameCredit (GMC)
- Syscoin (SYS)
- BitMark (BTM)
- Franko (FRK) (bugs)
- Carboncoin (CARB)
- Anoncoin (ANC)
- Unobtanium (UNO)
- Zetacoin (ZET)
- MazaCoin (MZC)
We tested the GUI with the current features and left satisfied and happy to release the 0.3 version. Also, we want to warn that it might behave different way on other machines because the GUI requires more testing sessions, same as the API and the desktop builds. And there are still issues with Iguana core. Feel free to test it on your machines and file issues, if any - https://github.com/SuperNETorg/Iguana-application/issues
How-to-test The last release of the desktop application does not contain Iguana Wallet tab, but it may work if you run Iguana with it and open new files in Chrome. We also advise to use the very first version, as it performed better for the GUI testing.
Here is the guide you are to follow, if you want to try Iguana wallet in action:
