Sneak Peek Wasabi Wallet 2.0

Wasabi Wallet 2.0, a highly anticipated update to the Bitcoin privacy wallet, is set to rollout in the next 5 to 14 weeks, according to a blog post sent to Bitcoin Magazine. The post also laid out a detailed rollout plan that dictates this time estimation, and is defined by a set of milestones that must be reached in order to be released.

“We’ve created three milestones before Wasabi Wallet 2.0 is released in its complete and final version:

  • Wasabi Wallet 2.0 Preview will contain a minimal subset of features, only the most fundamental ones. This milestone aims to have a rudimentary version of the software released so as to start testing and fix all the initial bugs. This should only be used on the Bitcoin Testnet network.
  • Wasabi Wallet 2.0 Release Candidate will include all features and will be available to the public for reviewing and testing. We will work on this version until the quality of the software is sufficient.
  • Wasabi Wallet 2.0 Final Release (Series) will be the first version of the 2.0 series.”

Wasabi, a free and open source wallet, utilizes CoinJoin mixing to enhance user privacy and obscure transactions. This privacy centered focus is expanded upon in the coming release: “We are aiming to offer privacy for everyone and to make privacy the default.”
