Additionally, Edge wallet’s newly launched crypto price hunting service will be the first-ever non-custodial, best-price hunting exchange service.
Version 1.4.0 also includes a highly-requested feature: the ability for users to choose their preferred Electrum server node for connection to various currencies including bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Litecoin, and Qtum. This change gives users the option to select nodes that prioritize desirable features such as privacy, speed, proximity, and more.
The update will support new language options, including Spanish, Italian, Russian, and Portuguese to increase access to the Edge wallet worldwide.
