The Importance of a Lightweight Option for Shielded Transactions

To fully appreciate the importance of having a lightweight option for using shielded transactions on personal computers, the requirements for running a “full node” like ycashd or YecWallet should be considered. These requirements include:

  • Indexing all the transactions in those blocks in order to build a database
  • Reindexing all those transactions to rebuild the database should it ever become corrupted

The Story Behind YecLite

YecLite was developed by Ycash software developers funded by the Ycash Foundation. It is a port of Zecwallet Lite, which was developed by the ZecWallet team. The ZecWallet team has achieved several important milestones for the Zcash network, including the first cross-platform desktop GUI wallet (ZecWallet), the first shielded paper wallet (ZecPaperWallet), the first shielded desktop light wallet (Zecwallet Lite).
