It’s difficult to keep up with the many moving parts of a decentralized autonomous organization, especially one with global reach such as PIVX. This May was a particularly busy month for PIVX, with news ranging from industry-first technical achievements to various exchange listing announcements.
PIVX Core Wallet Update v188.8.131.52 is the star of the month, and the year… so far! While it is clear that this update ushered in a new era of private proof of stake, it also brought the crypto community a variety of enhancements ranging from simple to fundamental.
Notable PIVX Core Wallet v184.108.40.206 changes include:
- zPIV Staking (zPoS)
- Deterministic zPIV Seed Keys
- Updated zPIV Minting
- zPIV Search
- Wallet GUI Overhaul
- Return change to sender when minting zPIV
- Disable Automint Feature / Set Amount
- External Storage Backup
These are only some of the wallet enhancements, see full release notes on GitHub: https://github.com/PIVX-Project/PIVX/blob/3.1/doc/release-notes.md
