As we announced in our previous StealthCoin article, which can be found here, the team has released their StealthText feature, as well as the whitepaper. On top of that, they also released StealthRelay. Let’s take a closer look at what this is all about!
If you read our article about StealthText, you will know this feature allows users to send StealthCoin privately and anonymously by SMS. Even though this feature may not sound unique compared to services offered by other altcoins, there are some key differences.
StealthText does not require a data connection in order to be used, making it an attractive alternative for underdeveloped countries. XST are sent directly from your wallet, and confirmation of the transaction will be sent via SMS.
By using banking-grade encryption to protect transactions from prying eyes, an extra layer of security is provided when using StealthText. All transactions are also tamper-resistant, which guarantees your transactions will be executed faithfully.
StealthRelay, the other XST feature which was released recently, is a simple message relay which extracts an encrypted StealthText transaction from a local designated mailbox. The encrypted transactions will then be dispatched to the StealthCoin wallet where it is decrypted and broadcasted to the XST Tor network.
More information about both features can be found in the released whitepaper :
