A lot of cryptocurrency enthusiasts are looking forward to the upcoming Darkcoin client release, which is bound to hit the testnet in the near future. When we take a closer look at the recent GitHub activity, a lot of progress is being made so far. Let’s do a quick recap of some of the more recent changes being made to DRK v0.11.x!
As we have mentioned before, one of the main updates to be found in this Darkcoin client upgrade will be in regards to DarkSend and how it presents feedback to the end user. In the current DRK client, it is hard to see what is happening exactly when using DarkSend to mix an anonymous transaction. This will be changed in the upcoming release, as a status will be set and displayed in the client overview.
But that is not the only change coming to DarkSend, as this Darkcoin feature will now also check for new blocks on the network. While this may not seem like a significant change to most of our readers, it is an extra security protocol which will increase the usability of DarkSend in the long run.
And there are more DarkSend changes coming, as things just keep on getting better and better. More minor changes though, but welcome changes nonetheless. Once the DarkSend process resets, the Denomination label will show N/A in the upcoming DRK client. A collateral checking bug, which was introduced after the update to Bitcoin v9 codebase, has now been fixed as well.
A high precision matching engine will be added to DarkSend as well. While this term might sound very technical, it operates on rather simply yet effective principles. Thanks to this engine, DarkSend can now take queue objects (showing which users wants to mix what amounts) and look at its own inputs to see if this is at all possible to join their mixing session. The bottom line is this : DarkSend mixing will be a lot faster than it is right now.
