Aphelion – Desktop Wallet Review

Aphelion is one of those decentralised cryptocurrency exchange platforms that is powered by the Neo blockchain. This company only recently (actually on the 20th of April, 2018) launched the beta release for its desktop wallet known as version v1.1.6. This wallet is made available for use on Windows and Linux operating systems. It was designed to support several Ledger devices although the Ledger has been disabled for users of Mac driven desktops.

This was done as a result of a foreseen issue which will be rectified in subsequent versions of the wallet. It is also compatible with NEP5 based tokens including NEO, APH and GAS. This wallet solution is actually the basis for the release of DEX a P2P cryptocurrency trading platform that will enable cryptocurrency traders to get first-hand experience of the benefits to be derived from peer-to-peer trading on a global scale.

The whole idea behind the wallet solutions by Aphelion is to ensure that traders in cryptocurrency can transact business in a decentralized setting using a highly interactive and user-friendly interface. The Neo wallet comes with real-time trading chart data as well as a Nep5 token integration and an address book that can be easily customised. Updated versions of this Neo wallet will also incorporate the highly advanced Decentralised Exchange Asset Ledger (D.E.A.L) technology which will permit wallet-based cryptocurrency trading as well as P2P smart contracts.

The internal currency of this decentralized application (dAp) are the APH tokens. If you are a user of the Aphelion platform or a would-be investor to the platform the APH tokens will be redistributed to holders of this internal currency whenever they are spent during peer-to-peer cryptocurrency trading. This can be likened to the relationship between NEO and GAS.

As Aphelion is not a centralised platform it will not store up tokens or have them held for any reason. It is a community inspired dApp with every trade in cryptocurrency taking place between two or more users on-chain (that is within the Aphelion network) or cross-chain (that is between users from different blockchain networks).
