Yet another busy week at Nav Coin HQ as we gear up to release our last few months worth of work before the end of March.

We’ve had over 50 sign ups for the beta test of our new Nav Coin Core 4.0.0 wallet which is a great response. We will be releasing the download to the beta test group within the next 24 hours, so there’s still some time to sign up to get your hands on it before the public release at the end of the month.

Please keep in mind that the wallet is still a beta release and it is advisable only to send a small amount of your NAV to it for testing in case anything goes wrong, not that we expect any problems at this stage. NAVTech private payments should be fully functional in the new wallet. If there are any issues found, they should be reported on the github repository directly so we can prioritise and attend to them.

Our other work is progressing well. With the beta of 4.0.0 completed, we are now fully focused on the NavPi, NavTech 1.1 and the new Nav Coin Website this week. We are on track to get these completed for release alongside the public release of the new core wallet at the end of this month which is coming up fast.

You can track our progress on NavTech 1.1 here:
