We are pleased to announce the next MultiBit HD release (0.1.4) is available for download.
This release adds support for the KeepKey hardware wallet.
Here is a quick summary of the changes contained in this release:
You can now use your KeepKey hardware wallet in MultiBit HD. It works in a similar manner to a Trezor hardware wallet. You can use it to sign your Bitcoin transactions.
To use your hardware wallet with MultiBit HD simply plug it in.
We have put together a short tutorial (4min) on YouTube which shows you how to pay with Bitcoin using MultiBit HD and KeepKey. Click on the image on the left to view. For the technically minded it also shows how the Bitcoin Payment Protocol is integrated.
Bitcoin Core has recently raised the minimum fee a transaction must have for it to be relayed by the Bitcoin network. It has been raised from 1000 satoshi/KB to 5000 satoshi/KB. The minimum amount in the MultiBit HD fee slider has thus been adjusted upwards. All this fee goes to the miners.
We normally wait 24 hours after a release and then activate the semi-automatic upgrade process. You decide if the upgrade occurs. The upgrade process will not affect your wallet data. Only the application binaries will be upgraded.
You can find more details, including digital signatures, on the download page.
