The developers of Darkwallet, the intentionally controversial and OBPP award winning Privacy Bitcoin client are believed to have abandoned the project. One of the developers, Amir Taaki, is allegedly busy “developing something that requires a lot of his attention.”
Father of the 3d printed gun and cofounder of Darkwallet Cody Wilson stated:
“Amir will be largely unable to contribute for the next few months into even late next year.”
Taaki is “working hard,” he added. “Just developing something that requires a lot of his attention,” as revealed in a recent thread on the UnSystem mailing list.
The nature of this new and very important project is not clear, though rumor has it that it’s related to decentralized governance. However, one thing is clear: this very important project is not the development of Darkwallet as we know it.
In the same thread, Wilson revealed that they are “having trouble locating Pablo,” the Senior Developer of Darkwallet, according to their website.
This certainly dampens the hopes of privacy concerned users who are seeking top notch Bitcoin privacy, though other wallet providers are certainly working to fill that gap.
