Quite a lot of activity to be found on the Darkcoin testnet over the past 24 hours, as a new testnet client has been released. Version 0.11.1.x’s main new feature will be the testing of Darkcoin’s InstantX feature, which makes received transactions spendable in less than a minute. Let’s take a look at how the testing is going so far, shall we?
The release of Darkcoin Core version 0.11.1.x marks the addition of InstantX to the list of features and tools, allowing users to spend their received transactions within roughly 40 seconds from showing up in their wallet. InstantX sends out transactions that immediately receive the number of confirmations needed (5) in order to become spendable.
In order to make sure the InstantX feature can be tested properly, the DRK testnet could sue additional testMasternodes which are all upgraded to the latest version. So far, we have seen mixed results from community members saying that not every InstantX transaction is anonymous, and some of them just appear normally on the blockchain.
It is also interesting to see how the InstantX features “locks your coins” for the transaction you want to send, while it is doing the necessary work in the background to get the 5 confirmations sorted as soon as possible. Once this goal has been achieved, the lock will be removed and your transaction is broadcasted on the DRK network.
We will be keeping an eye on the InstantX testnet results, and keep our readers updated accordingly.
