Release Notes

Release Notes

The team spent time fixing bugs, adding new features and streamlining the flow of the GUI. Some pages have been updated to better the user experience. Furthermore, a major restructure effort over the GUI codebase has been completed.

The code is now more modular, less prone to errors and takes advantage of the capabilities that the latest Angular provides. This pre-marketplace code restructuration will enable us to implement features like auto-update and multiwallet in a much better way.

As the marketplace will also be integrated soon, we renamed the software to the simple and beautiful "Particl Desktop". This software is intended to include the wallet, the marketplace, secure chat & more. You can now find it under the particl-desktop repository of the Particl GitHub organization.

Test the Particl Desktop to discover all the other improvements we made, and do not hesitate to point out things we might have overlooked in our inevitable humanity (see below to open issues).


The addition of the ZAP functionality will greatly assist in successful cold staking activation*. This feature brings the option to:

  • Force (ZAP) that last few PART over to the cold stake address that might take a long time to stake otherwise
  • Force (ZAP) funds from small wallets to the cold staking address
  • Quickly activate cold staking, by means of sending all funds to the cold staking address in a single transaction

* Take note that the later will be less private. If Privacy is a high concern for you we would suggest allowing the cold staking process the needed time to stake the funds as intended.

UI Preview

"Particl is an open source project that aims to restore the balance of privacy on the internet."

We provide a decentralized privacy platform with a suite of tools to enhance your online privacy:

  • An anonymous cryptocurrency – send and receive the PART cryptocurrency without revealing the transaction history
  • End-to-end encrypted messaging – communicate in a secure and decentralized manner without revealing your IP address
  • A private marketplace – buy and sell goods without leaving a trace

This repository is the user interface that works in combination with our particl-core.

Boostrapping for development:

  • Download + Install Node.js® 6.4—7.10
  • Download + Install git
git clone
cd particl-desktop
yarn install

Development with Electron

  1. Run ng serve to start the dev server.
  2. Run yarn run start:electron:dev -testnet -opendevtools to start the electron application. Daemon will be updated and launched automatically.
    • Note: this command will auto-refresh the client on each saved change
    • -testnet – for running on testnet (omit for running the client on mainnet)
    • -opendevtools – automatically opens Developer Tools on client launch

Interact with particl-core daemon

You can directly interact with the daemon ran by the Electron version.

./particl-cli -testnet getblockchaininfo


Start Electron

  • yarn run start:electron:fast – disables debug messages for faster startup (keep in mind using :fast disables auto-reload of app on code change)

Package Electron

  • yarn run package:win – Windows
  • yarn run package:mac – OSX
  • yarn run package:linux – Linux
