Breeze Wallet with Breeze Privacy Protocol Released
(Powered by TumbleBit and Stratis Blockchain Technology)
Breeze Wallet with TumbleBit has a new name: Breeze Wallet with Breeze Privacy Protocol. Breeze Wallet will be the first wallet of its kind that will not only provide a fully featured crypto wallet, it will also include a unique coin shuffling and swapping technology. The protocol takes small denominations of bitcoins from a source wallet in Breeze, shuffles and swaps the coins with others, and then transfers those coins to a destination wallet.
The process is powered internally by TumbleBit to add privacy to your coins. It is likely to be used by discerning individuals and businesses that accept cryptocurrencies and do not want to leave traces that may reveal their customer and supplier lists.
Alpha Available Now
Stratis Internal and select community testing of Breeze Wallet with Breeze Privacy Protocol is complete and we’d like to offer you, our community, the opportunity to take a look, download and try the Alpha. The new wallet is available now for Windows, Mac and Ubuntu. Download details are available here: (https://github.com/BreezeHub/Breeze/blob/tumblebit-alpha/Breeze.Documentation/alpha/option1.md ). This release runs only on testnet and is an alpha/experimental release.
The work has focused on developing a smooth user experience as well as deep integration into the Stratis Blockchain Technology. There is no longer a need to run BitCoin Core alongside Breeze Wallet when using the protocol to shuffle and swap coins. That functionality is now completely provided by Stratis Blockchain technologies. This work moves us closer to our vision where MasterNodes provide discoverable services – such as the privacy protocol – to the Stratis network in a decentralized, scalable, trustless way.
We’d like to point out that the Breeze Privacy Protocol is a CPU intensive service and although we will be providing a test server, places on the server are limited and part of the goal of the community alpha is to stress the server. Please do not be disappointed if you cannot get on this server – we are working with our community to add more server power. If you are interested in running a server please get in touch.
We’d like to also extend a warm thank you to our dedicated community testing team who have done an excellent job helping to get Breeze and the core NTumbleBit technology to a solid alpha release state. A special mention to badass, zomertje, sigma, demon and kabbie. And lastly to all our capable development team across all functions. Last but not least thanks to Nicolas Dorier and the TumbleBit dev team from MIT. This was a team effort and you guys are awesome.
