Breeze Wallet Enters Pre-Alpha Testing

Today we are proud to announce that we are making Breeze Wallet available for testing as a pre-alpha version to a limited audience of developers and aficionados.

For your convenience in helping us with our development efforts we have packaged this pre-alpha version as a virtual machine with all the required components. This includes some pre-installed software as well as the code for Breeze already cloned to /home/stratis/Breeze.

The Breeze Wallet Pre-Alpha Virtual Machine can be downloaded here.

Note: This download location is temporary for testing versions. Downloads for final versions will be made available from our own servers and domain locations.

Instructions:
1. Download and install VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
2. Download Stratis dev – Ubuntu 64-bit.ova
3. Import the VM:
Open VirtualBox.
Click File | Import Appliance.
Locate the .ova file.
Click Next.
Review the Appliance settings.
Click Import.

Log in with username ‘stratis dev’ and password ‘1234$abcd’.
