I’m excited to announce that v1.0 of Zecwallet-CLI is now available!
What is Zecwallet-CLI?
Zecwallet-CLI is a lightclient for Zcash. This means it doesn’t need to download the full block chain to send and receive transactions, which cuts the amount of data that it downloads by over 95%! You can get start (almost) instantly sending and receiving fully shielded zcash transactions.
- Full support for incoming and outgoing Memos!
- Full support for t-addresses (incoming + outgoing!)
- Full support for HD wallets, deriving all shielded and transparent addresses from the same seed. This means your full wallet is backed up with just the seed phrase. All transactions, balances and memos can be recovered with just the seed phrase.
Remember to backup your seed phrase
Please take a look at the README to view help and other info!
If you run into issues or have questions, please feel free to comment here of file issues. I’m now working on the UI version of Zecwallet, which should be available in a few weeks.
This project is possible thanks to a grant from the Zcash Foundation. I’d like to thank several people that helped me get this out of the door: @acityinohio, @gtank from the Zcash Foundation for supporting Zecwallet from the start, @str4d, @lindanaeunlee, @kevin.gorham, larryruane, @geffen, and the entire ECC Wallet team that helped me debug issues and answered my questions, and @garethtdavies, @hloo, @ChileBob, @dimitris.apostolou and everyone else that helped me beta test this!
