It’s been a busy few months for Nav Coin. Let’s grab a cup of tea and take a sum of our latest technological advancements.

August to September
Dedicated Tor Nodes For Advanced Security
On the 14th of August Nav PR member Mark Sloane announced Nav Coin gained access to dedicated Tor Nodes. A Nav Coin community contributor setup the service to give users the option to mask their IP address while connecting to the Nav Coin Anonymous network. The Tor service provides an extra layer of protection for users who want to make anonymous transactions.
New Cutting Edge Anonymous Network
On the 29th of August developer, Craig MacGregor announced on the Nav Coin Community Forum that the first cut of the new anonymous send system was in the testing stage.
“Everything seems to be working great so far and I have sent a bunch of successful transactions over the test net!”
The anonymous send system, which won Nav Coin the title of world’s first fully anonymous currency was redesigned from the ground up in preparation for the platforms forthcoming decentralization. A media release went out on September the 5th detailing the improvements to the system and laying out Nav’s process of anonymizing transactions.
On the 5th of September Craig announced that he had completed the improvements to the anonymous network.
“I’ve had a very busy week optimising the new anonymous scripts (I was up till 3am last night!!!). I have successfully completed all the improvements which I was hoping to get done before tidying up for deployment to the live environments.”
The re-release of the anonymous network has involved months of near full time development and is set to launch in the next month.
Lite Wallet for Windows and OSX
On the 11th of September, the Nav Coin Team announced the release of their lite wallet. The lite wallet is not only a great piece of technology, it also marks the first Nav Coin wallet for the OSX operating system.
Full Node Wallet For OSX
On the 15th of September the Nav Coin team broke from their weekly updates to make a special announcement.
“We have successfully compiled the full node wallet for Mac OSX and it is available for download now! Big shout out to Soopy for getting this compiled and bundled correctly!

The Nav Coin Dev Team are working hard towards the relaunch of the anonymous system. Today they have released a demo video of the anonymous system fully functioning in the live environment. This marks the project moving into its final phases of pre-release testing.
With the relaunch completed the Nav Coin team will prepare for decentralization and will focus their efforts on payment gateways and merchant integration. These real world applications of Nav Coin offer countless exciting growth opportunities. A business group in Kuala Lumpur have requested a merchant gateway for Nav Coin. The integration would enable Nav Coin to be used as a payment method for their travel website.
