Particl Electrum and Web Services
Particl Electrum is an easy-to-use and accessible light wallet that lets you send and receive PART, as well as manage wallets, without having to sync the entire blockchain.
Because it uses the SPV protocol first proposed by Satoshi Nakomoto in the Bitcoin whitepaper, all that needs to be downloaded are the block headers which are multiples of times smaller in size than the full blockchain. This is incredibly useful as an end-user wallet, but that is only scratching the surface of how Particl Electrum is intended to be used further down the road.
Indeed, Particl Electrum's back-end is poised to become a cornerstone of Particl's broader accessibility ambitions, notably by enabling applications and blockchain services such as Particl Marketplace or the BasicSwap DEX to be deployed on and accessed from the web.
With that in mind, this release is a significant milestone for the project and sets the stage for radically more accessible Particl applications; a necessity in order to ramp up their usage and adoption.
