We have just released the latest Windows and Linux versions of our Vialectrum wallet, version 3.0.5. The macOS version will be released in the near future. Vialectrum is a fast, secure and very easy to use lightweight Viacoin client. It doesn’t require you to sync the entire blockchain because it uses servers that index the Viacoin blockchain. Your funds are securely stored and can easily be recovered from any device using a secret phrase. Vialectrum 3.0.5 comes with a lot of upgrades like Bech32 address support and better fee estimation. We have also added VialectrumX Tor nodes. If you open Vialectrum 3.0.5., while having your Tor browser open, you can choose to use Tor proxy to add a layer of anonymity.

  • Code migration from Python 2.7 to Python 3.x.
  • Code migration from QT4 to QT5.
