According to the announcement, Ethos has released a performance boost that has sped up load times up to 600%, allowing users to better navigate the coin library, wallet and transaction history pages.
In addition to the performance upgrades, Ethos has also introduced push notifications for the first time. These notifications currently include company announcements, app updates and breaking news, but the team plans to expand the functionality to include price alerts and transaction status updates.
This news comes roughly a month after Ethos partnered with Simplex to bring the payment processor to the Universal Wallet. The new functionality came with the v1.6 update, enabling users to purchase Bitcoin and several altcoins with credit and debit cards.
