The new Pirate Chain full node wallet is here.
Core Dev Forge has done a lot of work to improve the wallet’s security and to make it lighter and more user-friendly. The most notable changes for users will be:
Brand New Look
The brand new look now has 3 modes to choose from. The standard version, a dark mode and a pirate mode, which is (and we are biased) the most aesthetically pleasing.
Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of a secure memo field. The memo field accepts up to 512 characters. It is a secure form of communication on-chain. It also offers an interface between the wallet and gateway exchanges that require the use of the memo field to transfer funds.
Sweep To Address
As z-z private send technology is very demanding and very taxing on wallets, using more than 4 addresses can cause severe delays with the operation of the wallet. A new function named “sweep to address” addresses this problem by helping to consolidate multiple addresses into one, thus making the wallet, lighter and faster.
