android/iOS wallets
« on: August 11, 2014, 06:55:13 AM »

Are there any plans for an iOS or android wallet for bitsharesX? I did a search and didnt find much of anything here on the forums

Im putting this thread in marketing because penetration into the mobile market places will help huge in getting people to use/trade bitshares. iOS and android are huge markets with huge user bases.


Even if the primary users are power users with wallets they compiled themselves, having the option of trading bitsharesX on their smartphone is very appealing to lots of people. Even if the wallet isnt that advanced, even just having a basic wallet will appeal to users who are considering getting into trading bitsharesX



This is just an idea, but I think its a very important to break into the mobile market as its a huge and constantly growing user base. Even someone just seeing a wallet on the google play store or the apple app store will make people look into it. Even the windows apps store has some potential.

And yes, I realize that apple is a real bitch when it comes to crypto-currency wallets getting approved, but android is pretty much a sure deal and thats the hugest mobile market out there right now

I don't think the andoird wallet is far up in the todo list ..
actually the "wallet" (gui) already is a webapplication and could easily be
a) made available to be loaded from an external server with minor security drawbacks
b) pimped for small size screens

but currently devs are too bussy getting the market online ... IMHO mobile support is much less important then THE CORE feature (bitassets) in the blockchain
also .. the blockchain is not even a month old .. how long did it take for bitcoin to have an android wallet?

Also, the devs have plans for an SPV functionality on the chain .. so things are moving ..

Cool. I  +5% that notion.

Agreed 100%


also .. the blockchain is not even a month old .. how long did it take for bitcoin to have an android wallet?

I respectfully disagree with this reasoning. Just because the blockchain is new and small is not a good excuse to not create a droid wallet. It only makes sense, people want mobility... blackcoins got one several:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cc.p2pwallet.wallet (also supports peercoin, the other PoS coin)

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.wiskunde.bc

....and this one too: http://ufasoft.com/coin/ (not on play store, unverified publisher)

and the NXT devs have a working one in beta as well:
https://nxtforum.org/nxt-wallet-for-android/(android-nxtwallet)-third-beta-version-3-0-1/
(yes i realize its closed source, but it is a working nxt droid wallet)



The Competition seriously believes there's a demand for droid wallets and I think it should be a priority given that almost everyone has a smartphone or tablet now. Maybe integration into p2p wallet?

Would you seriously trust closed source applications!?  ::)
When core features and functions are included without any issues/bugs ...
guess a mobile version could developed fast on top of!
But idk what security issues on mobile devices could pop up then.

But yes i'm thinking you're right with that we have to conquer the mobile market then also. Huge potential market.

Feel free to develop a mobile wallet in parallel! All devs are invited to contribute ;)

not at all, but theres a very good chance it will go open source when its out of beta



just took a look, the blackcoin droid wallet has 500 to 1000 downloads, and the p2pwallet has 100 to 500 downloads

Blackcoin is based on bitcoin and a fork of the andeois bitcoin wallet is easily written .. for btsx we need stj new from skretch ..

Its probably easier to aim for a web wallet first that is backed with strong security functions and responsive to mobile devices. Although apps are easier as you don't need to remember a web wallets URL.

My 2 cents

BM mentioned in the recent dev hangout that the community just needs someone to DO it .. this will surely be a profitable startup!

so if you know people that can code .. gather them together and get started!

Where can I join the hangouts?

"Thefuzz" is the organizer and usually posts a "Call for Questions" on the forum (somewhere)
he also functions (in some way) as an inofficial community coordinator .. I am sure you can also PM him directly for your proposal ..
