Let's talk about: Wallets

Recommended Posts

As you guys know, I am still fighting with Apple to get our enrollment approved. It seems that's a pain with Apple's current fight with Gambling related apps. But I still think we can solve this in the near future. However, the development of our wallets is ongoing and I would like to get some feedback. 

Mobile Wallet: As you know we are currently using a forked version of Toastwallet. We are currently looking into the latest updates to decide what we will merge into ours. So far people said they really like Toastwallet but I would like to hear more voices on this. 

Desktop Wallet: People are always referring to Rippex but I didn't have time to look at it my self, afaik I would have to build it. With the new version that is about to be released soon(TM) there will be a lot of improvements. I don't want to spoil the new stuff but I would like to get feedback on what is missing or should be added.

In order to move on, I want to ease up the handling of backup and recovery for all wallets and make sure we use the same mechanism on all of them. While the "classic" wallets have crypto people as a target group, a lot of those things play into the BRM as well. I need as much feedback as possible to ensure our wallets are more than "good".

Only commenting on the desktop wallet.

1. Closing of the process after closing the wallet GUI. This, I understand, is being fixed in the upcoming release.

2. Check permissions on the .casinocoin folder on startup (uid/gid). Also, if possible, allow the program to only be run as normal user, and not as root/sudo/Administrator.

@Daniel Keller - I noticed that the download link for the binary for RHEL/CentOS is # on the casinocoin.org site. Will there be a binary RPM package for the 4.1.4 release?

Also, if the foundation needs a repo/mirror created for binary downloads (Linux), I am sure there are many of us who can provide them.

Yes, please make the recovery process more easy in case we lose our CPU or the program deletes randomly (right? @CindyLou).

Thanks brother!  :drinks:

I can only say something to desktop wallet.

1.you already said make it much easier to back up the wallet and Keys.

example You get that File from exporting private Keys but actually You only need that secret to back up ur wallet and Not that private key xyz and other Information. You should make it clear wich information is realy important. To make it Mainstream it needs to be easy and easy to understand for everybody. Most people dont know what to Do After Setup a wallet and to get much more Information After Exporting the Keys can easily confuse People 

 You should keep it as simple as posibile because the Most People are Not tech People Who understand whats goning on.

My personal experience and opinion is this:

People early into crypto like more raw looking technology. The toast wallet is OK. On some level, the most important thing is being able to send digital assets back and forth safely and easily. (read: don't get hacked, don't lose keys)

Love or hate coinbase, one thing they have done very very well is their user interface. It's "softer" on the eyes. Many of Apples apps to me look like complete garbage, they look like large fonted childrens games and are almost insulting to our intelligence. However, this is what appeal to people. "Think of how dumb the average person is, now think about how half of people are dumber than that". 

I think you have to make it as childlike as possible for the masses. We aren't trying to create a niche for tech geeks. we're trying to appeal to everyone here, right?

Coinbase, Abra, and Uphold are three mobile apps I'm familiar with that all have a very very appealing and unintimidating user interface.  Toasts wallet works, but it's sorta clunky and raw.

I always thought you needed to import the paper wallet to the desktop wallet in order to send and receive CSC but maybe I'm wrong.

You can send CSC from exchanges to the paper wallet without the desktop wallet.

However, if you want to send CSC from your paper wallet to exchanges, you need to import your paper wallet to your desktop wallet first.

That's my experience.

just to confirm here.. theres no purpose for a desktop wallet if you have all you CSC on a paper wallet, correct? :JC_thinking:

WHOA! @XRPto50dollars is in the house? i thought for a second i was logged into xrpchat. its very strange seeing you as a Newbie. hey maybe thats a good thing. weren't you a newb in the other site when XRP was still at .17?? if so, maybe CSC will do the same thing and run hard!

Right. what i did was transfer all my CSC to paper wallets, delete the casino coin wallet (with the .casinocoin folder), and uninstall the wallet completely and be done with it. this way i don't have to worry about remembering how to get back into my casino coin wallet. when I'm ready to convert CSC to BTC or cash ill just reupload a new wallet and use the secret keys on the paper. of course, its not like theres any rush haha. CSC probably won't be going anywhere for quite some time

when you create a paper wallet you have a public and private key. transfer CSC from your casino coin wallet to the public address on the paper.

This. there is a fine line between an OK app and a great app. you don't want it to be too technical but not so simple its a turn off.

Unless you don't want to send coins around, yes. 

 

Currently looking into updating the mobile and desktop wallet roadmap 🙂

@Daniel Keller et.al. Sold my ALV´s yesterday in my Ripple Desktop to XRP. All done in the Wallet.
It would be great if the CSC wallet was able to store as well XRP with a trustline and you could do the same thing inside the wallet.

Thoughts?

Not sure if I understood correctly. But CSC only uses a modified ripple codebase, and not the XRP ledger. So don't understand how it would be possible. Unlike ALV, which uses the XRP ledger. @Daniel Keller ?

Me I am not a techie @Fidgetspinner My perspective was this concerning the CSC wallet also could store XRP (though  it is not really there as we all know (Bla-bla))
So you can buy CSC with your XRP in the Wallet. Or Vice Versa. You short circuit one step of the buying process with that.*
 

*Buy XRP with FIAT at an exchange. Withdraw XRP from exchange to CSC wallet and Buy CSC in the Wallet.

Got it. Except, there is no connection between CSC and XRP, other than the fact that there is an overlap of market investors in both at this early stage. And the fact that CasinoCoin used the modified ripple code base, since it best suited their purposes. So, I don't quite see why there would be a special relationship between XRP and CSC. Going forward, there will be even less of a connection between the two, other than possibly an emotional connection, and transaction speed.

You never know, better ask a question like I did and see what the outcome is.
