### Try Sakia Wallet

21
In the world of crypto-currencies, [Sakia Wallet](http://sakia-wallet.org/) would be called a [SPV](https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Thin_Client_Security#Simplified_Payment_Verification_.28SPV.29_Clients) client. It is a graphical client connecting to the network. See this [tutorial](https://forum.duniter.org/t/join-our-new-testnet-currency/813) to join in the testing currency with Sakia.
