In their most recent development update, the team at Verge (XVG) wanted to notify their community on what they have been working on in the first half of October. Of particular importance to the XVG Hodlers, is the progress of the Verge Wallet as well as the work being done to upgrade the codebase of the digital asset to the most secure of Bitcoin. This was after the slight incident of a bug being found in the Bitcoin core codebase a few weeks ago. The team has however clarified that XVG had not yet upgraded to that version with the vulnerability. Therefore, there was no need to panic.
In a recent development update by the team at Verge, the community notified on the progress of the following:
- Android Verge Wallet update
- iOS Verge Wallet update
- Stealth addressing
- Multi Language (translating the Verge international webpage)
The team acknowledged that most of their attention had been towards creating the new desktop and iOS wallets. As a result, the already working android app, was sort off bumped down the list of priorities by the team. However, the team wishes to notify the Verge family that they are working on redesigning the android wallet.
This new update will include the integration of the TOR client which means that Orbot will no longer be required on the Android version. Other features that the the team is working on, include the following:
- QR Code Reading
- Settings View
- Transactions view
- Integration with the blockchain
The iOS wallet is still being worked on with plans underway to launch a Beta 1 version. 20 testers of the wallet will be randomly chosen from twitter. They will be picked from the followers of the team on the social media platform. TOR integration on the iOS wallet has also been solved by the team.
Stealth addressing is particularly key for the project, and the team promises to dedicate considerable time towards its completion.
