  1. Maiar v.0.2.76 (Private Beta) for Android Please note that this is one of the first Maiar's releases and that Maiar uses for all crypto assets their corresponding Testnet, so Mainnet (real) tokens should NOT be transferred using Maiar in this phase. This also means that things may not be perfect and will improve with your feedback and support. IMPORTANT: If you already have Maiar for Android installed, before updating, backup your recovery phrase and then update to the latest version. If the app crashes when you open it, uninstall it and do a clean install and choose the "I already have an account" option; you will need both the invite code (you still have the email, right?) and the recovery phrase. Where to download: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.elrond.maiar.wallet Add labels to addresses Add recovery phrase QR code screen Update toasts library Fix PN registration on backend Fix lock screen issue Other bug fixing and improvements

Where to download: https://testflight.apple.com/join/BRfJXsQM New Features Group onboarding transactions in one activity item Add the option to retry a failed onboarding process Add feedback animation when searching a herotag Search herotags while typing Bug fixes and improvements: Make daily news scrollable above the market cap info Add full screen scroll in contact details Fix an UI issue on contact list screen in iOS13 Performance improvements on home screen Fix a crash happening on Pull to refresh Fixed an issue that could hide some generic activities Update top info from daily digest screen Known issue: Some users might see an activity card with ‘Account activation pending’. This is because the onboarding happened in the past and onboarding specific transactions are not fetched.
  3. Forumul este dedicat pentru Maiar. Ideal ar fi sa scrii pe Telegram, pe grupul in limba romana: https://t.me/ElrondNetwork_ro
  4. If you were invited already (in one of the 5 waves of invites we have sent until now) your are no longer shown on the leaderboard. Your rank is shown as "invited". So please refrain from jumping to conclusions and share with me, in a private message, your email address to double check.
  5. Definitely support for more languages and for local currencies are on the roadmap to be supported.
  6. Thank you Henry for sharing your thoughts. We are at the very beginning with Maiar. In terms of UI and UX you are right, there are still many things that needs to be "removed" or we need to hide; there are still features we did not yet released. We will start very soon a process to simplify things even more and make Maiar more easy to use for non-crypto users. The last month, and the feedback from the last waves were really mind-opening in regards with what users do and what they understand; and there is a lot of things we still need to do to in order to make Maiar usable by the regular non-crypto users. Simplicity and clarity takes time :) But we will get there, is a process that is very rewarding if you get it right.
  7. If you were in the top 500 on the waiting list you should have received an email. (Please check the spam folder as well; it might be there in very few cases). Check the instructions in the email in order to install the app. Shortly those invited will be removed from the top rankings of the waitlist and will be able to see on their dashboard the status “invited”. Today we are also launching: https://community.maiar.com/ Everyone is invited to use the Community website for feedback, bug reports, feature requests, discussions etc. Please note that this is one of the first Maiar's releases and that Maiar uses for all crypto assets their corresponding Testnet, so Mainnet (real) tokens should NOT be transferred using Maiar in this phase. This also means that things may not be perfect and will improve with your feedback and support. PS: For those who do not want to wait, found out later, etc. they have now the chance to convince us to bypass the waiting list by just sharing with us in this post the best reasons we should invite them to the early testing of Maiar: While we do not make any promises that you will be invited, the best requests and posts will be rewarded with an invite.
  8. No, the herotag once chosen cannot be changed. This is at least the default approach right now. However, in the testing phase, we will reset a few times the database and the Testnet blockchain so you will be able to change between versions your herotags. Also, it is worth mentioning that at the public launch, we will have a fresh start so herotags used during the test phase will become available and you could chose a new one or again the old ones (if they are still available). We are considering adding the option to add to an existing herotag, one or several aliases so that you have more options. Adding aliases might be a paid option (there are fees to interact with a Smart contract) and/or a premium option (to be decided at later stage).

  10. Both Elrond and Maiar are currently developed and supported by the same team that started initially Elrond around 3 years ago.
  11. It seems like an internet connection issue. Maiar app should be available in Google Play by clicking the link from the invitation email or by searching. You could try using Google Play from a desktop/laptop browser and ask Maiar to be installed on the device. Might work this way. Let us know if you managed to solve the issue.
  12. Regarding the 1st suggestion, there is already an SMS authentication taking place when you create an account. Do you having something else in mind? As for the 2nd, fiat (on-ramp/off-ramp and cards) is definitely something we are looking into. I am curious to know how would you expect from Maiar to be different than other fintech (non-crypto) apps that are there , like Revolut, N26, Monzo or Chime?
  13. Guys let's use English. There are many people from many countries around Maiar and Elrond. PS: We will probably add in the near future some sub-forums for specific languages where there is a strong or large community.
  14. The recovery phrase is a crucial element for the security of your Maiar Wallet. If your device is lost, damaged or stolen, you can use your recovery phrase to restore access to your entire wallet. Therefore, it is important to keep your recovery phrase or private keys safe. if you lose access to the recovery phrase no one can help you. If you lose the phone, or the number or want to migrate to a new number but still have access to the recovery phrase you will be fine and you will be able to restore access to your wallet and/or account. One of the next features we are working on already is a backup option that will give the possibility to backup in the cloud (iCloud or Google Drive) an encrypted file with the recovery phrase, protected by a password only you know (no password reset option). The cloud backup option is not for everybody although we believe many will use it. As mentioned it is an option one might take, depending on its personal choice, value stored and his understanding of security measures involved with wallets, blockchain and crypto. Best practices: Write it down on a piece of paper and store it in a safe and secure place. Store it inside a Password Manager. If you aren’t already using one, you should probably do so anyway. Your recovery phrase will be stored inside an encrypted database either locally on the user’s device or remotely through an online cloud service. Note taking Apps like Notes for iOS, Samsung Notes for Android or OneNote let you create notes protected with a password. If you don’t want to use a Password manager, storing it inside a password protected (and encrypted) note also works. Redundancy is important: Store your recovery phrase in different places to have a backup of your backup. An accident may destroy one backup, but is unlikely to affect the other if they are in different locations.
  15. We will take a look. It is definitely an option we were waiting on iOS for some time. It might take a little bit longer than usual until it will go live, as the main focus right now is on the Maiar wallet. But then again, it is a very nice option and we will put it on top of our priorities for Maiar browser.

Before posting Before you post to Community, take a moment to do the following: Look through this community website - it's built to address many common questions and known issues. While still a work in progress, content will be regularly added and is always worth checking here first to see if your issue is covered. Look for Duplicates - Given the amount of reports/request we get each day, there's a good chance that someone else may have raised your issue already or may have been resolved. Before posting, use the search bar on the top-right corner of the website to see if other users have raised the same concern. Using the template Your bug report should look something like this: Description of the issue: Maiar will not open any news except when opened from the daily digest screen.

  20. Building our own browser put us in a unique position to deliver the best features and experience for speed and privacy. The best time to care about the internet, its design and impact was 20 years ago; the second-best time is today. We want to help accelerate the transition from web 2.0 to web 3.0 and reinvent the web. Building Maiar is the most effective way of doing that. We may develop extensions in the future, if our users really need them.
  21. We often get asked about the relationship between Maiar, Google Chrome and Brave. While we rely on the Chromium engine (maintained by the Chromium project) and on the Brave Shield component, this is where similarities end. The reasoning is as follows: different browsers use different engines, but upon closer research we have found the Chromium engine code to be more secure and most widely used. Developing a new engine from scratch would have taken far too long and would have required significant resources. It’s the same reason why nobody has built a new engine from scratch in the last 20 years. Unlike Google, our business model is not about collecting massive user data and monetizing it. We don’t collect usage data, we only look for an aggregate number of users. We don’t use the Google sync servers for syncing devices, and therefore we cannot share data with Chrome. In short, as it’s unable to get any data from Maiar users, Google does not benefit from Maiar being based on Chromium. Unlike Brave, our business model is not about re-inventing the advertising industry by using rewards and the BAT token. While our immediate focus is privacy, we’re on a mission to rethink the web and monetization from the ground up, not just the advertising model.
