Mintcoin Wallet Upgrade from v Faster Start-up!

Mintcoin developers are hard at work responding to the communities request to make Mintcoin “faster”.

The community has spoken and the developer has responded with a new Mintcoin Wallet featuring the new Fast Start feature.

This feature has been integrated into the wallet to speed up the initial process of opening the wallet. In previous versions of the Mintcoin Wallet opening the wallet could take up to several minutes while decreasing the overall computers processing capabilities.

With this 1.10 Once the wallet has been upgraded you will be able to instantly open the Mintcoin wallet within seconds.

We believe that this will significantly increase the usage of the Mintcoin wallet.

Additional Enhancement:
