ARK Desktop Wallet v2.9.3 Released

The new ARK Desktop Wallet has been released. This version addresses the input we received in the last week from the updated ‘Send/Transfer’ modal introduced in the previous version, making it easier to switch between single and multi transfers. There are also more improvements, let’s go over them now.

You can download the ARK Desktop Wallet at https://ark.io/wallet or use the new download feature from within your current wallet (available in v2.7.0+).

What’s New?

  • Improved Single / Multi transfer modal — after the changes introduced in the previous version we have received a lot of reports that normal transfers aren’t as intuitive as we have hoped for. We went back to the drawing board and changed the flow now to have an option to easily switch between single or multi transfers. This can be done by pressing either the ‘Single’ or ‘Multiple’ tab button for the transfer you are about to initiate.

  • Fixed ARK URI Scheme — URI scheme (prefilling transfer data) has now been fixed to work as expected when interacting with ark: addresses. It now gets properly populated and can be initiated.

  • Fixed fresh ARK Desktop Wallet initialization loading screen — when you have installed a fresh version of the ARK Desktop Wallet v2.9.2 (previous version) without any prior installs of it, it got stuck at the initialization screen. This has now been fixed and fresh wallet installs work normally (no more stuck at the loading screen).

What’s Next for Desktop Wallet?

We are deep in the development phase of our all-new Desktop Wallet V3 which will bring a totally new design based on our unification across the board. Built with ReactJS and using our new Platform SDK underneath it will heavily improve user flow. Stay tuned for more information as we are very excited to tell you about all the new additions coming to the ARK Desktop Wallet!
