The technology that powers practically every core wallet today provides an “acceptable” level of functionality, re-using and updating code from the original Bitcoin wallet from more than 10 years ago, built for techs and crypto-nerds and not user-friendly. 

We think it’s time for a revolution.

The PIVX Project wants cryptocurrency to be for everyone, and so, after 11+ months of creative design, intense development and rigorous testing, the PIVX Community and Development Team are now ready to release version 4!

“This is the first major PIVX wallet since the change in the management of the PIVX core development team in early 2019, and the amount of human hours and quality coding put into this one release is way beyond what most projects have done in their lifetime. This release signifies the new beginning of things to come for PIVX in 2020 and beyond.”

Welcome to the new, friendlier crypto experience

In the new core wallet version 4, the entire experience has been redesigned so that each action a user takes can be done so in a logical and intuitive way. The visual elements have also been upgraded and reworked to reflect the needs of our constantly growing user base. 

For new users, the software provides built-in support and help features that provide guidance on how to complete a multitude of tasks such as how to get started staking or setting up a Masternode.

We are proud to release a completely redesigned and re-engineered core wallet. We are no longer satisfied with making tweaks and adjustments to software that is getting close to being a decade old. This is unique code, no fork or copy and something truly innovative and transformative.

“Redesigned PIVX 4 wallet is without a doubt the most user friendly crypto wallet ever created. PIVX said its final goodbye to 1998 software design and user experience, and welcomed 2020 in style. I’m so excited to finally be able to Cold Stake PIV while they are safely stored on my Ledger. Usage of any cryptocurrency wallet until this PIVX wallet release never felt that much safe, easy and intuitive altogether!”

Features of the Next Generation PIVX Wallet

v4 introduces a completely new Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the wallet, designed and coded from the ground up in partnership with the Krubit team.

Equally important, this release has some incredible new tech advancements and implementations including the new PoS Time Protocol, Cold Staking, new Masternodes Signed Messages, smaller v7 Blocks, and v4 Zerocoin Public Spends, as well as many additional core and network improvements!
