  • Release Notes

Features

  • Mandatory SBBS Pow 7e81667
  • Relative Time Locks and Laser Beam support
  • BeamHash II
  • Minimum fee. Max (100 Groth, (10 * number of outputs + 10 * number of kernels))
  • Mac OsX Catalina support

Known limitations

  • Inconsistent transaction statuses when running two or more wallets that use the same wallet.db file cloned manually
  • 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.
