Over the weekend, we've released Particl Desktop 3.3.1 on mainnet. It fixes a marketplace bug that prevented orders from being accepted or updated along with a few other fixes and improvements as well.

List of Changes (Changelog)


  • Allow switching between test and regtest networks when the app is in testing mode.
  • Force change SMSG wallet to the current active wallet when the selected wallet changes (the marketplace does this already, but this ensures that the correct wallet is always used for sending SMSG messages even when outside of the marketplace).


  • Fixes balance updates in Overview not updating correctly when a new block is received.
  • Updates the cold staking info when a new block is received (ensures the cold staking percentage details are updated correctly now after a block is available).
  • Only show the 'abandon transaction' button on the transaction history tables when the transaction was a send transaction (no point in trying to abandon a received transaction, for example).


  • Updates particl-market to fix a breaking bug in the buy-flow (accepting an order and subsequent steps would fail).
  • Only show the sidebar warnings (wallet unlock, profile backup) once the market service has actually started.
  • On starting the marketplace, use the current active wallet if the wallet is a marketplace identity and no default is set (and multiple market identities are enabled); this means switching between wallet and market modules 'remembers' the current wallet instead of reverting back to the default particl-market wallet on each market load when another market wallet was already selected.
  • Updates the help text for the wallet locked indicator in the sidebar, and clicking on the indicator now opens the wallet unlock modal.
