Performance Enhancements

The dev-team has been hard at work ensuring that you have the snappiest and smoothest cryptocurrency wallet available in your hands, and this update will mark a series of radical performance enhancements we will be making.

Whether you are opening your app to the home screen, loading SmartWallets, WatchFolios and even pulling up coin charts, the app has been leaned out for faster loading times and for charts to require less in-app resources. We have also changed to a new homepage framework so that you can scroll through your SmartWallets and WatchFolios faster and easier than ever.

By changing the way we cache data and call data inside the app, we’ve been able to reduce all relevant load-times. Let us know what you think – and how we can continue to increase performance.

Ethos Coin Library – Profiles, Reviews & Comments

Coin Profiles have now been enhanced, including the ability for the community to rate tokens, leave comments, see their comments in the showcase and upvote or downvote comments based on whether they find them helpful.

We have also added education and social links to each Coin Profile so you can easily click to see read a token’s white paper or see that latest updates and announcements in their social channels.

Bedrock in Action

Payroc – Merchant Solution
The Ethos Team is rapidly advancing our crypto payment service in partnership with Payroc, using Ethos Bedrock. First, we are setting up the frameworks to on-board merchants. Account creation, verification and getting their wallets created, so we can supply them with the easy-integration of a “Pay with Crypto” button for their websites.
