Yes essentiall you can turn your PIV into zPIV and wipe all previous transaction history from the standard PIV. There is a small conversion fee, but 1PIV pretty much turns into 1zPIV. You can transfer this PIV into zPIV in different denominations to help with the anonymity and creation costs. The remaining piv that isnt sent in the "wrapped" denomination is sent back to your own wallet as regular piv with no previous tx history.
Once spent, zPIV will convert to regular piv. But they will appear in the recieving wallet with no history. From there they are able to live a fufilling life as standard piv, that is... untill somone turns them into zPIV again.
Regarding an IOS app..I read that one has been rejected. Has any thought been given to doing a PWA version? That is basically a web based version that can act like a native app and be installed as an icon. NavCoin has a PWA ios wallet that would been a good example.
Fortnite really made a name for PWA recently. Coinomi is good app, but support for zPIV minting will most likely not be adopted by them at least in the immediate future. I'll bring the idea up on discord to @furszy if you havnt already.
If you havn't already, check out the #pivx_Development channel on the PIVX Discord (linked below).
https://discordapp.com/invite/jzqVsJdThis response was given to the inquiry about PWA by @btc247:
the PWA approach for ios might cause headaches. If data is purged after a few weeks...
"Limitations compared with native iOS apps
The app can store offline data and files only up to 50 Mb
If the user doesn’t use the app for a few weeks, iOS will free up the app’s files. The icon will still be there on the home screen, and when accessed the app will be downloaded again
No access to some features, such as Bluetooth, serial, Beacons, Touch ID, Face ID, ARKit, altimeter sensor, battery information
No access to execute code while in the background
No access to private information (contacts, background location) and also no access to native social apps
No access to In App Payments and many other Apple-based services
On iPad, no access to work with Side or Split Views sharing the screen with other apps, PWAs will always take the whole screen
No Push Notifications, no icon badge or Siri integration"
I disagree. I think that the audience always appreciates when they get to see not just marketing but the actual people with the ideas. Take Vitalik or Elon Musk as examples. They have a lot of work to do but they are great at outreach
I've actually noticed that the broadcasting of the ip significantly kills performance (factor 10) on ras pi. So it's pretty fast until you broadcast, which typically happens after like 30-40 min of staking and from then on once every 24 hours.
Yeah, it's really a pity. I hope the devs optimize this though I doubt it will happen soon. Took them like a year to fix the peer banning bug which forced the user to resync the whole blockchain for no reason... Drove me crazy.
