Nice! Installed & ‘zent it some zats’ :slight_smile:

Idea… maybe incoming memos could appear as ‘notifications’ ? Popup messages, beeping & all that jazz? This is really neat !

Pretty cool. This is a big step.
Is it only using one z-address right now?

The wallet itself can have multiple z addresses and t addresses - I just need to figure out a good UX to expose them on the receive tab.

Not sure if you’ve addressed this yet, but in Zbay we just give folks a “generate new address” button, both for z and t addresses, that changes the one address presented to the user.

Our thinking (based on conversations with users) is that the main use case for generating a new address is privacy protection, e.g. you don’t want two external parties you’re transacting with to be able to figure out they’re transacting with the same person by comparing the addresses provided. So this solves that problem with the minimum amount of complexity.

I’d be interested in getting feedback on the pros and cons of this approach too!

The new z-addrs are diversified addresses, right ? If they’re not & you need to reindex/rebuild your node it’ll bog down as each zaddr needs its own scan of the blockchain.
