I've been working on this project in my spare time for a little while now (I'm a developer, if you didn't know already). My vision was to bring an exchange-like website to market with a bitshares back-end, to make it easier for non-techies to get started with bitshares and trading.

It's planned to feature in-browser signing of transactions (for security purposes) enabling a web-wallet, a trading interface, bitUSD on-ramp through bitcoin deposit/withdrawal and a bunch of other stuff.




As it stands, its only really a bitsharesblocks.com style viewer, because I'm only part way through development. I'm putting this out there now because I wanted to get a feel for whether people thought this would be a project worth voting in as a delegate?

To the ecosystem it would contribute a javascript implementation of transaction signing, provide a way for traders to get started with bitshares without having to install the client and enable them to get into and out of bitUSD via bitcoin (in a similar way to https://trade.secureae.com/ does for NXT).

So, is this something you'd vote my delegate in for (if I had one) ?

Cheers, Paul.

Wow .. that is a KILLER feature ... it would allow blockchain.info style web-based exchange! DO IT!!!!!

Hell yhea!!

And you would use a backend to interact with the network .. the javascript implementation manages the signing/accounting part! I like it
Maybe you can collaborate with this guy:

I think you will run into problems when parsing TITAN transactions ... as the private key is in the browser .. and you need to scan ALL transactions if they are intended for you ..

Either you focus on the 'mail' protocol which will be used to announce transactions for the lightweight client soon .. or you will only be able to work with non-TITAN transactions .. either way .. the project can lead to a killer-app!! +5%

I've been wondering what it was you were working on, nice idea and glad to see you've made good progress :)

Javascript signing of transactions is great, there's more to having a secure web wallet though no? Blockchain.info uses an API to determine balances and so doesn't need access to private keys, but with Bitshares and TITAN that becomes impossible. Will your backend create a hosted wallet for each user and control the private keys, and users login using a separate password? And won't this require having a client running per wallet? The fact that the wallet needs to be open and unlocked in order to scan transactions kinda complicates things as well.

Or maybe I'm off base completely and you'll circumvent the problem by running one client with an external system and accounting for each user similar to an exchange?

I'm not confident about what's really necessary here, just throwing out some questions :) 

Either way despite all my questions, it's definitely a project worthy of running a delegate for and I'm sure you'll get lots of support, including mine!

Mail will be used for this?? How did you learn that?

These are interesting points - I have to admit, I did wonder whether TITAN would present issues with this idea. I will take a look at the mail protocol, thanks for pointing me in the right direction :)

We are going to provide a way to do this without Titan.

Can't speak for xeroc, but there was a conversation on the forum between bytemaster and drltc a while back when bytemaster mentioned this is what mail is about. Not necessarily the same thing as KeyMail, afaik.
