We’re happy to announce that the new versions of CROATCore Android app and CROATCore Light Web Wallet (which you can find at https://croatwallet.com) are now available!

What’s new:

Additional protection for the mobile wallets: -2-key verification: PIN on top of private spend key is now required in order to be able to restore a mobile wallet.

Small behind the scene corrections and bug fixes.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE NEW VERSION OF THE CROATCore Android app:

It is MANDATORY that you update your app via the Google Play Store, rather than uninstalling your current version and performing a fresh install. Please note that if you do not follow this recommendation you will NOT be able to recover the wallet associated with the uninstalled version even if you have your private spend key available!

Once you do the update and run the new version for the first time, you will be asked for a 4-digit PIN to use as an additional layer of security on top of your private spend key, should you ever need to recover your wallet or transfer it to another device or to croatwallet.com.

This PIN will be unique, fixed and IMPOSSIBLE to change at a later date, just as your private spend key, so please keep it in a safe place (preferably not in the same place as your private key) and make sure you don’t forget it!

You will only be asked to set up a PIN for the mobile wallet only once, when you first access the new version of the wallet. Please note that if you choose not to set it up, you will not be able to use your wallet until you do create a PIN.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE NEW VERSION OF THE CROATCore Light Web Wallet at croatwallet.com

From now on, every user who did not configure a PIN for their account will be asked to do so after they log in at croatwallet.com for the first time after this update.

You will be asked for a 4-digit PIN to use as an additional layer of security on top of your private spend key, should you ever need to recover your wallet or transfer it to a mobile device or another croatwallet.com account.

This PIN will be unique, fixed and IMPOSSIBLE to change at a later date, just as your private spend key, so please keep it in a safe place (preferably not in the same place as your private key) and make sure you don’t forget it!

You will only be asked to set up a PIN for the mobile/light web wallet only once, when you first access the new version of the mobile wallet. Please note that if you choose not to set it up, you will not be able to use your wallet until you do create a PIN.

As always, we insist on the importance to treat your mobile wallet as such and understand that its level of safety is lower than that of a desktop full wallet and so you should only keep the minimum required amount of Croats in your mobile wallet, keeping larger sums in your “big” desktop wallet.

For your protection, it is always advisable to update to the latest version as soon as possible, therefore the previous version is no longer supported.

We’d like to thank the community for all the support! We’re happy to continue to deliver high quality products for CROAT and many great things are on the way! Stay tuned so you don’t miss any news!
