FlexPrivacy©: Chose between public or private transaction with the same account

FlexPrivacy© is the most anticipated feature that we have planned for X-CASH since the birth of the project :

FlexPrivacy© adds the possibility to send a public transaction or a private transaction from the same wallet on a per transaction basis.

It will be as easy as clicking a toggle switch in the GUI, and typing « public » in front of the transfer command in the CLI.

Revamped block explorer

With this update, we will release the new X-CASH block explorer, from which you will be able to check transactions and blocks with better visibility and clarity.

The revamped block explorer will provide better reading of the blocks, and information from public and private transactions.
  • an API tab;
  • statistics on the X-CASH network;

Fixed ring size

We this update, we decided to fix the ring size to 21. Fixing the ringsize enables better privacy, as to avoid multiple and unusual ringsizes that could be used to link transaction.
We found that 21 enabled a good compromise between quickness of execution, privacy, and low impact on size.

Bulletproof transaction

The latest addition of Monero 13.0. Bulletproof transaction enables much smaller transaction, hence decreased fees and more transaction per blocks. From now on, the blockchain size incrementation will decrease.

Switching algorithm

We are switching mining algorithm from CNv7 (=CNv1) to new ASIC resistant CNv8 (=CNv2). It is recommended to check if your mining software is compatible with the new cryptonight algorithm.
