Known limitations

  • The app will always choose a random node to connect to, connecting to a specific node will be added later
  • Restore flow is implemented on desktop only, hence the mobile wallet funds can be restored from the desktop using the same seed the mobile wallet was created with
  • When sending beams from mobile to desktop wallet, the QR code scanning works from desktop wallet version 2.0
  • If multiple wallets are restored from the same seed phrase, transaction history and addresses will not be shared among the wallets.

Points to mention

  • In case a mobile wallet is connected to a random node and the user has both mobile and desktop wallets which are using the same seed phrase, the funds sent to the desktop wallet won’t appear on the mobile wallet. If the desktop wallet is running a local node, it will see funds sent to both wallets. The reason is that the local node (integrated into the desktop wallet) always monitors the blockchain for UTXOs related to the seed of the wallet. The mobile wallet does not run a local node and thus can only monitor transactions sent to its specific SBBS addresses. Of course, no funds will be lost in any event.
