Blocknet introduces Trade History and XWallets with new wallet update
An update to the Blocknet Wallet has been released that includes updates to proposal voting, coin control, Trade History and integration of Blocknet’s new XWallet technology. The development of Trade History and XWallets represent completed milestones on the Blocknet Q3 Roadmap. The new wallet can be downloaded here. Details on additional updates in this wallet release can be seen below.
The focus of this release is to extend the capabilities of the Blocknet Protocol and improve the user experience within the Blocknet Wallet.
NOTE: The 3.10.2 wallet update is a MANDATORY UPDATE for Service Nodes and anyone using Block DX due to the change in fees. Service Nodes that don’t update will not receive any fees. Block DX users that don’t update will not be able to view orders.
An on-chain transaction history service is now part of the Blocknet Protocol, which will allow completed orders to be viewed via API. Trade history APIs will be released to the public in September with another wallet update, and integrated into Block DX to show price history.
The Blocknet protocol can now determine which blockchains each Service Node supports. This will allow developers to identify which blockchains are ready for SPV and XRouter services so that developers can begin to harness contracts and protocols from other blockchains to create cross-chain dApps. As XRouter matures, Blocknet service nodes will begin supporting more and more blockchains, opening the door to trustless SPV support for any application. Within the wallet, commands can be found by typing “help” in the console.
Simplified proposal viewing
For proposals, there is an easily navigable list with the most recent proposals at the top. Additionally this list can also be sorted and filtered by proposal status.
Simplified proposal voting
Voting can now be performed through the UI by selecting the proposal and casting a vote using the ‘yes,” “no” or “abstain” check boxes.
Coin control has been redesigned and improved. Coin control is now in a separate window, providing a less cluttered view. It is much easier to choose and apply various coin control settings such as manual customized inputs that are displayed in a list configuration.
Selection of transaction fees is now on a separate screen for further clarity:
- Functions are no longer hidden and buried within menus.
- More operations can be accessed in a maximum of 2 clicks.
- Built in C++ (rather than Electron) for greater security.
There is still much work happening on the Blocknet Wallet. With each new release, more features are being added and screens are being remastered to match the new look. In September, Blocknet will be doing another major wallet release as signified on the roadmap.
More to come
Following this release will be a Block DX update, which will introduce these features:
- DX Automated Setup
- Place Order by Price
- Taker Fees

Note: The 3.10.2 wallet update is a mandatory update for Service Nodes and anyone using Block DX due to the change in fees. Service Nodes that don’t update will not receive any fees. Block DX users that don’t update will not be able to view orders.
