Parity Technologies, the developer of blockchain infrastructure for the decentralized web, today announced the alpha exit of the Ethereum portfolio, Parity Fether. Using the Parity Ethereum light client, Fether can access the blockchain in a completely decentralized way.
The portfolio allows users to create Ethereum accounts and receive and send Ether and ERC20 tokens in just a few clicks. Parity Fether paves the way for developers to embed light clients in their applications instead of relying on centralized nodes to access the Ethereum blockchain.
The Fether portfolio runs Parity Ethereum Light Client in the background if no other nodes are running on the machine. Fether allows you to reach the top of the blockchain in a few minutes. the Parity team says it is still working hard to bring the synchronization to a few seconds, which can be achieved in tandem with additional lightweight client updates to Parity Ethereum.
Only for testnet
Because the code still needs to be verified, Parity recommends that you do not use Parity Fether on the Ethereum network or use it for any purpose other than using the test. Future versions of Fether will focus on stability and user experience improvements, including the addition of the BIP39 seed sentence support and the integration of Parity Signer.
