The long awaited yet much welcomed Beta version of the Trinity Desktop wallet application has been finally announced for release by IOTA‘s Foundation. With the release, various usability issues of the existing GUI wallet have been overcome. Reaching that and achieving, the team did continue on the wallet to complete its full deployment.
Per time of writing, its UX has been worked-around for the Desktop platform. Before release, the app was confirmed secure. Owing to user feedback, the team have developed a new default theme for desktop and mobile, in essence, adding to its many themes.
Via the announcement it was added that the link for desktop and mobile are the wallets website:
“Trinity Desktop on Windows is signed with the IOTA Foundation code-signing certificate, which needs to have a positive reputation in order to pass the Smart Screen filter. Microsoft establishes the reputation of an application based upon the number of installations worldwide of this application. Since Trinity Desktop has just been released (and therefore its reputation hasn’t yet been established), the Smart Screen will continue to flag the wallet.”
Caught on surprise, at the CEBIT 2018 Expo Germany, Volkswagen presented its joined forces with the IoT focused platform and vehicle manufacturer to demonstrate a PoC on how IOTA network can be used.
