Jun 26, 2018PIVX Light Wallet v1.0 Now Live!

With the release of the Android wallet, PIVX developer furszy’s attention turned to creating a streamlined desktop application that would make the process of sending, requesting payment of, and receiving PIV much simpler for the end user.

Links will be down until next update.

PIVX Light Wallet – Now Available for Windows, macOS, & Linux Users.

PIVians rejoice! The PIVX Light wallet is now available for download from the above links. With the light build, the wallet downloads only the block headers rather than the entire blockchain (whole blocks & transactions), resulting in less disk space and bandwidth usage, allowing for faster performance and sync times.

The light wallet also sees popular features in the android wallet: Mnemonic passphrase security and autofill, in wallet currency conversion, payment request, and QR generation. In short, accepting PIVX in exchange for goods and services is a much less time consuming, and easier process with the PIVX Light Wallet! If you experience any issues or have any questions regarding installation of the PIVX Light Wallet v1.0, please consult our support team in Discord:

PIV to Select Currency Conversion

Included in the PIVX Light Wallet is a currency calculator allowing the user to automatically calculate the value of PIV in their local currency, in real-time.

PIV Payment Request & QR Generation

You are now able to request a payment amount and automatically generate a QR code that, when scanned by the payer, will automatically input the payment address and the amount owed to the payee.

Allowing for much smoother, quicker transactions.

* These are only a few highlights of the light wallet – please see the bottom of this article for a full list of features.
