About this app

Nighthawk is a Shielded Wallet for Zcash with T-address support & Auto-Shielding technology. As a Z-address(Shielded) native wallet for preserving Privacy, funds can be sent out via your Shielded Address only. Tap on Available Balance to Shield any transparent funds.

Zcash is a digital currency, or cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin. (In fact, Zcash was built on the original Bitcoin code base.) It was conceived by scientists at MIT, Johns Hopkins and other respected academic and scientific institutions.

As a non-custodial wallet for Zcash, you have sole responsibility over its funds. Please immediately and securely back up the seed words upon creating a wallet.

As a light wallet, Nighthawk requires trust in the lightwalletd server to display accurate transaction information.

Maybe more robust settings options like lock with fingerprints or a pass code. Maybe a big green button under the send Zcash for a recieve Zcash button. Don't like the side shift button where something more useful could be, like a switch between USD/ZEC balance view, that would be HUGE(same for sending, ; visual $$ amounts will help interface.) These are tiny nags, tested small amounts a couple times, it works like a wallet should, privacy is a must!

Thanks for your feedback! Please update the wallet to the latest version 1.0.24 to see Pin code & Face/Touch ID support. We will continue to improve the UX based on feedback.

Every time it needs download and scan?! Why. It is very slow and uncomfortable. I cant do any thing whith it. I am not sure about it. It seems it does not have any send button and does not have any security pin and ... it is incomplete. I test it only because it mentioned in Zcash website. At this time I dont propose it for using.

Thank you for your feedback. Security is of utmost importance when using Nighthawk, the device pin/security is enforced when viewing seed words & before any ZEC can be sent. Additionally, you can enable a custom pin under Profile > Settings for app-start security. We are working towards improving syncing performance & easy to use UX.

Nighthawk team, the scanning and loading screen that happens before we see our balances really cannot take 30 seconds like it does now. That needs to done much quicker. The interface looks outdated, needs a cleaner and more modern touch.
