We hope that you all are enjoying the new year. The Phore Development team has ushered in 2020 with a bang — dutifully working away at the next Core Wallet update. This article will serve to bring you up to speed on the primary improvements. All items described in this article have already been completed!
New Wallet Features
The latest edition of the wallet will be equipped with a few new features which include HD addressing with seed words, and new RPC commands. Users will be able to create new wallets using a certain set of seed words to create their public/private key pairs. Note: it is imperative that users keep a physical written copy of their wallet seed words. This seed can then be used to recover future key pairs and serves as a permanent key backup.
New RPC (Remote Procedure Call) commands will be available to support a BitPay API command set. This makes it easier for Phore to be integrated in 3rd party platforms that use the BitPay API.
Several bugs have been identified and fixed, including:
- Editing Masternode entries using the GUI interface.
- A coin selection error that says “transaction too large” was rectified through improving the coin selection algorithm.
- When creating proposals with a locked wallet, the GUI will now prompt you for your password. Before this, the proposal had to be canceled and re-entered after unlocking.
- Staking algorithm improvements.
On The Horizon
We are working on a number of performance improvements to reduce CPU and memory usage, and make wallet and Masternode response times faster. We have already completed development and are beginning testing of several significant performance improvements. Wallet updates with the aforementioned features will be rolled out in the coming weeks/months. Along with a revitalized wallet will come a new roadmap that will set the project’s course for 2020 and beyond.
