Feature Progress Updates

Posted on July 28, 2022

The ZGo team has completed the implementation of on-chain payment confirmation as part of the first milestone of the project covered by the Zcash Community Grant approved in June 2022.

This milestone includes functionality to receive Sapling viewing keys from vendors and the monitoring of on-chain transactions to inform vendors when payments for specific orders have been received. These features, combined with the functionality to send ZGo invoices, enhance the application beyond retail sales, allowing vendors to sell goods and services remotely and easily validate when orders are paid.

There have been numerous enhancements to the user interface to ensure readability and ease of use, especially on small screens. One example is the ability to remove items from an open order. For the full list of changes, please see the full progress report.

The infrastructure for the app has been enhanced to support the increased loads on the Zcash network and we have also implemented a LightWalletD server available at https://lightwalletd.zgo.cash:9067/ to add another option for mobile wallets in our ecosystem. The ZGo nodes have also been upgraded to version 5.2.0.
