The foundation had released the Trinity mobile wallet earlier this year. Trinity Desktop wallet uses an improved version of the UX that you would find in the mobile version of the wallet.
In their Medium blog, the team commented on the UX of the desktop wallet:
“The mobile UX has been optimised for desktop with some neat additions, while maintaining a familiar flow. The app has again been audited to assure its security. And following user feedback, we have developed a new default theme for desktop and mobile, adding to our range of themes.”
The blog also contains instructions about how one should go about setting up their account on the desktop wallet and also how the transactions are supposed to be made using the wallet. For downloading the Trinity Desktop Beta wallet, you would need to go here. The link also contains links to the mobile version and the documents associated with the wallet. There are links to the FAQs, audit reports and even the help center out there.
If you visit the official website of IOTA, you would realize that the roadmap has now been updated to reflect the latest advancements.
The team is very excited about the release. A member of the Board of Directors of the IOTA Foundation, Ralf Rottmann replied to IOTA’s tweet by saying:
Kudos to the entire team! This has been long in the making. I’ve been using Trinity Desktop on my Mac for a while and it’s just wonderful!

In the blog, IOTA Foundation added a note for its users saying:
Trinity Desktop on Windows is signed with the IOTA Foundation code-signing certificate, which needs to have a positive reputation in order to pass the Smart Screen filter. Microsoft establishes the reputation of an application based upon the number of installations worldwide of this application. Since Trinity Desktop has just been released (and therefore its reputation hasn’t yet been established), the Smart Screen will continue to flag the wallet.
You can manually check the certificate by right-clicking the application icon and opening “Properties”. Then on the “Digital Signatures” tab, you can find detailed information about the “IOTA Stiftung” signature.
The foundation had also announced that it would be open sourcing the code for both the wallets today. One can find the code on the Github repo for the wallet. The team looks forward to working with the developer community for improving the wallet.
Additional videos informing people about transaction promotion and the way to change nodes can also be found in the blog.
IOTA (MIOTA) prices have grown considerably since it has been added on one of the most famous renowned global investment platforms in the market, eToro, on August 20. As of now, eToro has more than ten million registered users. Imagine the amount of exposure that the cryptocurrency gets on the platform. It certainly did help the cryptocurrency in better adoption—something every cryptocurrency looks forward to having while competing with other cryptocurrencies in the market.
In a press release, the co-founder, and CEO of eToro, Yoni Assia said:
“At eToro we believe in diversification and we are committed to bringing more cryptoassets onto our platform for our users to invest in.
Today, there are billions of devices that rely on the Internet of Things and this number is growing exponentially, with millions more new sensors added every week, as the planet becomes ever-more connected. IOTA aims to be the ‘ledger of everything’ by allowing data exchange between the sensor-equipped devices that populate IoT.”
The news about the Trinity wallet is expected to further the rise in the prices of the cryptocurrency.
