Zcash’s ECC (Electric Coin Company) released new source code for shielded only iOS and Android wallets as we learn more about it in the upcoming Zcash news below.
Zcash’s ECC announced the publication of the new open-source code on Twitter but the release didn’t come in a ready-built wallet application which gives the developers free tools to build their apps. The Electric Coin Company team posted a new open-source code to their Github page and announced:
“Today, ECC released the source code for prototype wallet applications built on our SDKs. These are reference implementations for fully-functional, shielded-only, Android- and iOS-native applications. Direct links and more info in this thread.

Zcash is the second-largest privacy coin by market cap that offers users an option to send shielded or transparent transactions. Shielded transactions are private and can hide the identified details of both the receiver and sender:
“Electric Coin Company said it viewed the release of the code as a “significant milestone. We view this as a significant milestone in our efforts to increase shielded address adoption, improve user experience, and empower economic freedom.

The ECC made sure to explain that these are not ready-built wallet apps in themselves but will further provide the tools for others to build them. The team explained:
“As these wallets are reference implementations, the apps themselves will not be available on any app store, but the code is open source and available to everyone.”
Not everyone thinks that this is a good idea. The CEO of the Nym project, Harry Halpin tweeted:
“TBH, it would be good if this code was packaged into a real-world wallet ASAP and just made available on app stores. Other than not wanting to maintain the wallet, what’s the argument?”
The Electric Coin Company stated in their official GitHub release that this didn’t equate to the official product of ECC but it should be viewed as a learning tool and as a community development resource. The team explained to the community members to pick up the reigns and to create new apps that they want to see:
“We will continue to develop, improve and release new code updates for the prototypes. But, wallet teams and developers, the ball is in your court.”
