In its new client update, Dogecoin development team added the support for printing paper wallets.
Developed by ‘AndyMeows’, the paper wallet feature will help users to store Dogecoin balances offline in a non-digital format, making them safe from hackers and computer viruses. Users can access this feature from the “FILE” menu to generate new paper wallets. These paper balances can be handed out in person to friends, families and merchants. Furthermore, users can adopt this method as a form of cold storage device.
[Note: For a better utilization, users are further recommended to disconnect their computer from internet before producing offline paper wallets. Also advisable is using basic printers (without WiFi or internal storage). This crucial step ensures the safety of temporary wallet keys from being captured or hampered by malicious entities.]
The new Dogecoin Core Client also took care of a number of bugs, and further made the following changes:
• Translation improvements and corrections
• Disable Transifex based translation process (not used by Dogecoin Core)
• Add checkpoints around AuxPoW switchover block (371,337)
• Disable connections from pre-1.8 Dogecoin Core clients
• Use HTTPS with dogechain.info
• Remove unreachable code introduced with AuxPoW support
• “blocknotify” option now supports %i as a format parameter, which is replaced by block height
• New option “maxoutconnections” to set the maximum number of outbound peer connections. Defaults to 8, minimum is 2, maximum is whatever “maxconnections” is set to (default 125).
