This month we have brought back our community test groups, to preview, showcase, and test features in development. Have an update on dev targets and progress, and both our core and light wallets have been upgraded.
Community testing | We have selected special members from the community to privately showcase
- New features, and builds
- Stress & smoke testing
- Tracking progress and development
We will use this group to keep our community engaged and updated during extended periods of development, allowing them to discuss and review progress as we develop. Special builds will be uploaded for this group to preview new features, track progress, and assist with testing before deploying updates & new features to the public.
DEV TARGETS | Our team has broken down major targets that are in process into three key areas
- Building a simple exchange UI that auto opens, rents, manages channels, and executes trades for the user
This is needed for a wide market reach, consider uniswap’s success as it proved you do not need a traditional trading interface. Especially with our 2nd layer channel logic, this feature will be useful to “hide” these steps for the user
2. Adding ETH Support
At the moment we have integrated ETH private keys and can receive, are developing the backend for it to read tx’s and send coins out
3. Adding ETH to the DEX | Once #2 is complete we will integrate appropriate API’s and begin ETH & ERC-20 token swaps
#1 and #2 are being developed now, and will begin with community testing soon. Once #2 is complete it will lead into #3. We aim for completion of all 3 in the coming months
Light Wallet Update to lnd 0.11
We have upgraded our wallet’s lnd’s to lnd 0.11
- Enabled with it are private channels.
- Security fixes
- Bug fixes
All channels opened to the HUB will now do so with the private flag, allowing for greater privacy and security for all users. Learn more about what lnd 11 brings from the lightning labs github here

Our developers have upgraded the core wallet to V1.0.25, which allows for 0% TPoS commissions, and TPoS from users segwit addresses (merchants must still use legacy addresses). Update to V 1.0.25 here
