The VeriCoin Wallet 1.5, released today, adds many new features, including some “to help the average ‘every day’ end user navigate the wallet easier.”
New in-wallet tabs give direct access to a News Ticker (announcements and updates from the VeriCoin community), a BlockChain explorer (details on all VRC transactions), a Chat, and a Forum. The new release also adds a “Turbo Bootstrap” option, allowing users to sync to the blockchain “in mere minutes”. In addition, from now on, the wallet will be automatically updatable.
The wallet also extends the possibilities for buying VRC without leaving the wallet (with other Altcoins or fiat currencies), with more integrated exchanges.
