In addition to the significant improvements that this 4.2 wallet includes, the release of this wallet now and not later also has a significant bearing to the accelerated build up of the ultimate development milestone of 2020; the PIVX 5.0 with zk-SNARKs privacy.

“PIVX, since its inception in 2016, has remained a steady, trusted pioneer in the blockchain space.” said Bryan “Snappy” Doreian of the PIVX community. “Respecting the rights of the individual and providing a technology that mirrors those values.  With this announcement and integration, PIVX continues to set the standards of Proof of Stake development.  With Sapling Protocol integration, a user of PIVX will maintain their liberty to exchange PIV privately, while letting him or her be in control of their own financial security and privacy, as well as his/her own regulatory compliance affairs. This is the freedom of choice we all deserve, and PIVX intends to continue to uphold.”

Simply put, the next major wallet planned after 4.2 is 5.0. That’s right. Privacy is coming soon.
