Groestlcoin Samourai v0.98.86.3 released
« on: June 22, 2019, 11:01:58 pm »

Groestlcoin Samourai is a wallet for the streets. A modern Groestlcoin wallet handforged to keep your transactions private, your identity masked, and your funds secure. Its main advantages are extremely portable and highly secure mobile Groestlcoin HD wallet.

We built a wallet that Groestlcoin deserves. If you are looking for a wallet that Silicon Valley will never build, the regulators will never allow, and the VC's will never invest in. This is the right wallet for you!

Changelog Groestlcoin Samourai v0.98.86.3:
• PayNym may use Segwit addresses
• Offline mode
• Address calculation tools
• PayNym address calculation tool
• Updated transaction sequence: compose-sign-broadcast
• Display wallet amounts by address type
• Full BIP84/bech32 support
• STONEWALL spend support. Break the assumptions of blockchain analysis with mathematically provable doubt between sender and recipient of your transactions. We provide increased doubt linking the inputs and outputs of a transaction. STONEWALL creates special transactions that provide strong statistical doubt as to the link between sender and recipient. Most groestlcoin wallets leave a trail of meta-data on the blockchain that surveillance firms use to deanonymize you. STONEWALL automatically helps guard against address clustering and other deanonymization attacks. Turn the tables on surveillance firms by using the same caliber tools they use.
• Ricochet 2.0 multi-hop spend. A free tool that adds extra hops of history to your transaction. Stump the blacklists and help guard against unjust 3rd party account closures. Centralized services suspend users and lock funds based on bogus blacklists and reports published by Blockchain Analytics companies. These companies scan the history of the last 4 transactions associated with the incoming addresses. Your coins can be frozen for their past activity. Even if they weren't in your control at the time. Ricochet doesn't solve the problem of blacklists but it does present a means of attacking the way spies build those blacklists. The wallet broadcasts the last transaction to the final destination with the correct amount.
• Sweep BIP84 (Bech32) & BIP49 (P2SH-P2WPKH) private keys
• Displays YPUB of BIP49 account, ZPUB of BIP84 account
• Added blockbook blockexplorer

• Like-typed inputs (p2pkh or segwit) will match type of outputs (wallet balance permitting)
• All utxo are now "blockable" and will not be spent if so marked
• Optionally show redeem script of Segwit utxo

• No address reuse - Groestlcoin Samourai never reuses addresses, never leaking valuable metadata about you and your purchase habits.

• Deterministic inputs/outputs positioning - Groestlcoin Samourai positions the inputs/outputs of each transaction deterministically after a send, decreasing the effectiveness of block chain snooping.

• Tor and VPN Support - Groestlcoin Samourai is enabled with Tor and VPN support allowing you the ability to route all transactions through an anonymous IP address.

• Remote SMS Commands - The first Groestlcoin wallet to hide itself and offer a remote self destruct button.
• Stealth Mode - Operate silently on the device.

When you share a normal address publicly, you are giving surveillance firms a starting point to track you. PayNyms defend against this type of 'First Touch' attack by never revealing an address to anyone other than the sender and recipient of the transaction.
Unlike ordinary groestlcoin addresses you cannot search for a PayNym on the blockchain, so you can't see the balance or transactions associated with a PayNym. Feel free to share your PayNym with your friends and family, or even post it to your social media profile, no one can see your balance.
Connect to your friends, family, and anyone else. Once connected there will no longer be a need to request a groestlcoin address, the PayNym is all you need.
Unlike ordinary groestlcoin addresses a PayNym can be re-used multiple times without worrying about privacy damaging address reuse.

How to use PayNyms
Scan a PayNym code to open a PayNym channel - A PayNym channel will be created between both wallets by sending a special transaction on the blockchain. This is called a broadcast transaction and requires 1 network confirmation to confirm.
Tap to send - Once the broadcast transaction is confirmed the PayNym channel is open. Simply tap the channel name to send Groestlcoin directly to that wallet. No need to know their address.
Your wallet now has a PayNym that you can share - Your PayNym code is unique to the wallet and never changes. You can publish and share your PayNym without a loss of privacy for you or the sender.
No address needed - When your Paynym code is added by another wallet you will be able to receive Groestlcoin without ever sharing a Groestlcoin address. You can optionally send Groestlcoin back to the other wallet without sharing addresses.

Stealth Mode & Remote Commands
To remotely retrieve your wallet seed for backup/restore. Send an SMS to your phone with the following message: SW seed YOUR_PIN_CODE
You will receive the HEX seed of your wallet in response which you can use to restore access to your Groestlcoin.
To remotely wipe your wallet send an SMS to your phone with the following message: SW wipe YOUR_PIN_CODE
You will receive confirmation that the wallet has been securely wiped from the device.
If your phone is stolen and the thief has switched the SIM Card you can still initiate remote commands. With Sim Switch Defence enabled Groestlcoin Samourai will send your registered trusted number an SMS as soon as the SIM card is changed on your stolen phone. You can now send a remote wipe command to the new number.
While in Stealth Mode Groestlcoin Samourai will not appear on your phone home screen, app list, launcher, or recent apps. To open your wallet once it is in Stealth Mode you must dial a special code: **YOUR_PIN_CODE#
If the code has been entered correctly Groestlcoin Samourai will launch.
