I’m excited to announce that the public beta of the zec-qt-wallet Android app is here! New in this version is the ability to connect your Android App and your desktop zec-qt-wallet simply by scanning a QR Code, and not messing with any firewalls, port forwards or usernames / passwords.
Here’s a quick video walkthrough:
This new feature, which is opt-in, uses a wormhole service hosted by zec-qt-wallet to route fully encrypted communication between your phone and your desktop zec-qt-wallet node. Here’s an illustration of how this works: More details here
Couple of things to note:
- The security audit is not complete, so please treat this as beta software. Use with small amounts of ZEC, or with the testnet.
- Since this is beta software, please send me lots of feedback by filling issues or leaving comments below.
