Monero (XMR) has come up with another upgrade of its digital wallet, followed with a most recent update that came with some pretty neat features that XMR users could enjoy for the past couple of month from since the mentioned update was published. That is how several days ago, Monero has published in an official tweet that the new updates of the system have been released for the public alongside with a new hardware wallet.
Monero Upgrades to Lithium Luna
A couple of days ago, on June 4th, Monero XMR has announced via their official Twitter account that the new Monero update has just become available for all XMR users.
The team behind the privacy coin stated that the new version “Monero CLI v0.12.2.0”, otherwise known as Lithium Luna comes with a full Ledger support, while some of the holders and users of XMR are interested in when the team behind XRM will be developing and launching the update with a full support for Monero.
Getting Ledger support has been long-expected by XRM holders, while the Monero team seemed to be delaying the update. However, this case might as well be justified since Monero has been created in a unique way that differentiates it from the majority of privacy coins, which makes the code more difficult to change and manipulate with.
So, at the time that Ledger Nano S was being developed, which is the name of Monero’s hardware wallet, the team had to make significant changes in order to be able to support the new wallet.
Further on the matter of launching new updates, the team behind XRM stated that they will be releasing GUI binaries for the new update by the end of the next week, which means that the GUI binaries can be expected to become public in less than a week at the time of this writing.
The users will get a chance to use GUI design for the new projects, which will enable XRM holders to get more familiar with Monero’s features, software and digital assets in general.
Monero Changes the Proof-of-Work
The launching of Lithium Luna and the Ledger Nano S wasn’t all from the team behind one of the most famous privacy coins as they have also changed their PoW algorithm in order to fit the needs of having new updates integrated into the system.
That is how Monero now makes up for a safer and more secure asset, given the fact that they have manipulated with their Proof-of-Work algorithm in order to prevent the notorious DOS attacks that are often initiated by ASIC miners, that way compromising the system of mining and the safety of the XRM network.
The newly added features also include Multi signature support, an input for prevention of the wallet deduction, help for the new wallet Ledger Nano S as well as help for SunOS, alongside with having been altered the PoW for the prevention of DOS attacks.
Lithium Luna update included nearly 90 developers who have been working overtime in order to bring the new updated to the XRM holders and investors. It took over 1600 commits alongside with nearly 57000 new coding lines.
Monero Listed on Huobi Pro
After the launching of the new updates alongside with presenting Ledger Nano S, Monero got a “treat” in form of getting a new listing that was announced the same day as the new updates.
This time, the privacy coin XMR has been listed on Huobi Pro exchange platform. Huobi Pro tweeted on this occasion, stating that XRM will become available with having the trading pairs with BTC and ETH on June 8th, when all interested investors will be free to trade their XMR on this exchange.
This listing came as ordered for Monero since this privacy coin needs a little backup and a dose of recognition from a high authority exchange market, especially with having been delisted from two Asian exchange markets, Korbit and Coincheck.
Coincheck and Korbit, stationed in South Korea and Japan, have both decided to delist the famous privacy coins, which also included ZCash and Dash, that way taking away strategic Asian exchanges from XRM and the mentioned privacy coins.
Despite the launching of new updates and having been listed on Huobi Pro, which is a massive exchange with 1 billion dollars worth of transactions being made every day, XMR can be seen dropping against the dollar on June 8th.
XRM has dropped by -5.43% in the last 24 hours since the market started to show signs of sluggish atmosphere, declining its price to 158.61$ at this point.
In the meantime, XMR users are waiting for the GUI binaries to be released during the next week.
