  • What else is needed here? This is basically the same information that's in the wallet UI so I'm not sure how useful this is
  • Why use native mode for those currencies it is available for vs Full mode? I wrote down a few notes but I'm curious if there is more. When adding a coin, I see when I select native mode that I get a Daemon param dropdown that says none, background process, reindex, or rescan. Can we explain these options to users? Google search on that topic doesn't get me anywhere.


Agama Wallet uses three operating modes that you can choose between when adding a coin to your wallet. Your choice of operation mode depends on your need for performance versus economy as well as the type of coin you are using.


1 Full mode

Using the Full mode will download the coin's complete blockchain to your local machine to boost wallet performance. This mode is faster but requires higher system requirements.

2 Basilisk mode

Using the lightweight Basilisk Mode avoids downloading a coin's full blockchain to your local machine, but wallet performance is slower as a result. Other than performance, this mode contains the same functionality as Full mode. Basilisk mode is best if your machine has limited disk space or inferior hardware capabilities. 

3 Native mode

This mode also downloads the coin's complete blockchain but uses the Komodo Daemon instead of the Iguana Daemon to query blockchain data. As a result, you gain some advanced functionality. Iguana Daemon (used by Full and Basilisk modes) only supports transparent transactions while Komodo Daemon (used by Naive mode) provides extra security by supporting private and transparent transactions (anonymous Z transactions). This mode is only available for KOMODO coin, PAX FIAT chains, Assetchains, and Geckochains.
