The new Nexus Tritium Wallet GUI (Graphical User Interface), which will replace the original Nexus QT wallet, debuts today in a public beta through October 27th, 2018. This new GUI is still in beta testing and should not be used as your primary wallet. The GUI is the second phase of the full Tritium release, following the Tritium Trust system integrated into the 2.5.1 wallet in September. This is the long awaited combination of new technology that Nexus has been developing throughout the year. Since the original vision, Tritium has expanded past these two phases to include the entire Tritium Software Stack which is in continuous development. Future releases will include Tritium Core with Signature Chains, Tritium Advanced Contracts and more.
Created by the Nexus developers Dillon Dugan, Kendal Cormany, Bryan Hallmark, Brian Smith, and Demorio Fluker, one of the most revolutionary changes for this wallet is the decoupling of the interface from the daemon (the back-end functionality tied to the Nexus blockchain). This significant advancement allows for modular design, separate updates, and enhanced ease of use for both developers and end-users.
The Overview page now contains a globe which shows your peer connections. Each wallet that your wallet connects to shows the city on the map along with the connection path. The globe can also be turned on and off based on user preference. Here you can easily view all of your important wallet statistics:
- Currency value in USD
- Number of transactions
- Market price in BTC
- NXS market capitalization
- 24 hour percent change
- Number of connections
- Block count
- Staking information (block weight, trust weight, stake weight, interest rate)
The wallet also includes a send/receive module, transactions page, an address book, customization settings, market data, the trust list, and an integration with the Shapeshift Exchange, allowing you to exchange other cryptocurrencies and tokens.
The Console is a special module for developers that was a feature in the original QT. This is where you can use console commands such as:
- help [command]
- gettransaction <txid>
- getmoneysupply <timestamp>
- signmessage <Nexusaddress> <message>
- addmultisigaddress <nrequired> <‘[“key”,”key”]’> [account]
- dumpprivkey <NexusAddress>
- importprivkey <PrivateKey> [label]
The wallet will continue to evolve, and as the developers build it out others can add modules and applications into the interface.
