The developers of Samourai Wallet in partnership with the French company Nodl will create a Lightning node capable of synchronizing with a wallet of increased privacy. It is reported by CoinDesk.

According to the representatives of Nodl, the new product is a “full, self-validating, bitcoin and lightning node” that allows people to use the mobile wallet app without relying on Samouri Wallet’s servers

A new device will appear this year. Nodl node users will be able to synchronize with the Dojo software from Samourai Wallet, which features the Whirlpool function, which groups bitcoin transactions in such a way as to hide the source of the source of funds. Representatives of the French company noted that the users receive one click mixing service for the first time.

In addition to Dojo being preloaded onto Nodl devices we will also be preloading Whirlpool desktop mixing, allowing users to access and manage their Samourai Wallet mixing on their desktop.

Katana Cryptographic, the company behind Samourai Wallet, raised $ 100,000 in the first round of financing.

In September last year, the release of the Lightning node from the Casa project was held.

CFTC to Approve LedgerX's Deliverable BTC Futures

At the same time, another platforms such as Bakkt, ErisX and Seed CX still awaiting regulatory approval

Cryptocurrency derivatives provider LedgerX LLC has received a license from the Authorized Derivatives Market (DCM) from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which will allow it to launch the country's first bitcoin futures.

Deliveries for deliverable futures are made in the underlying asset, not in fiat funds. Thus, LedgerX outstripped the Bakkt, ErisX and Seed CX platforms, which are still awaiting regulatory approval.

At the same time, LedgerX intends to launch the Omni platform for trading options, swaps, and bitcoin futures for retail investors, since at the moment it does not see enough interest from institutional market participants.

However, it should be added that some experts have already expressed fears that the nature of the license received will not allow LedgerX to provide margin tools to customers, and Bakkt should have such functionality.

Recall about the intentions to obtain the appropriate permission and overtake competitors LedgerX said in April.
