ZCash Cockpit UI Wallet wallet review

ZCash Cockpit UI Wallet
Complex Ease of use,  High Privacy,  User Private Keys Stored

ZCash Cockpit UI Wallet is a wallet plugin that provides a web-based service for the Zcash CLI. This wallet platform works only on Linux computers and requires advanced set-up skills for the end-user. Although the configuration is difficult, ZCash Cockpit UI Wallet gives users full control of the private keys, making it a safe choice for storing and trading ZCash cryptocurrency.

ZCash Cockpit UI Wallet is not exactly a wallet software, being considered more a plugin that connects the Zcash official wallet with the Linux Cockpit software and provides users a web-based Graphic User Interface (GUI) for using the official Zcash wallet. This software works only with Fedora and Ubuntu Linux distributions.

What happens in the event of a disaster/theft/loss?

All funds in the wallet are lost.

Although it offers a web-based interface for using the Zcash wallet, the set-up requires a previous set-up of Cockpit UI, a Linux server manager software and Zcash Wallet Command Line Interface, that requires Linux scripting commands. This wallet's proper configuration is a difficult task without knowledge of Linux terminal commands.

Summary:

This wallet software provides a better accessibility in terms of using the Zcash wallet but considering the fact that it needs a complex set-up of adjacent software, the ZCash Cockpit UI software is mainly for very experienced users. Also, due to the fact that the developing entity of this software is highly anonymous, users should use this software with caution.
