To start off this spectacularly hot Friday, I want to take a look at AeroCoin. There has been some progress made in regards to the anonymity features, as the AeroSend feature is now available. Let’s dig in, shall we?
As you may have remembered from our previous articles (click here), the AeroCoin development roadmap showed us there would be different anonymity-related features coming to this coin. The first feature will protects users’ privacy.
While the AeroCoin “privacy” anon feature was originally intended to be released on July 14th, the developers encountered a bug. Nothing major though, but something that had to be sorted out, as the AERO developers want to deliver a fully working product.
After some more additional testing , the source of the bug was identified. A new update followed yesterday, stating how some more tweaking had to be done. Final testing would take place yesterday and early today.
So here we are, early today, and the AeroSend feature is now officially ready. All bugs are ironed out, which is a very good sign. The release of a new AeroCoin client with AeroSend built-in is imminent, but there is more!
As the AeroCoin developers didn’t want people having to open up the console in order to send anonymous transactions (which can be a real pain in the rear), they are developing a workaround. A small yet elegant fix : a checkbox.
This checkbox will be visible within the main AeroCoin wallet screen, and can be ticked or unticked for each and every transaction. I’m really looking forward to seeing the new client in action, but while we wait, here is a screenshot of AeroSend :
