Hello,

    MagicWallet team has launched a new hardware wallet Keybox( https://keybox.magicw.net ) , now it supports BTS / BTC / ETH / EOS but only receive and transfer functionalities for all these tokens. So what is keybox ? For simplicity,  Keybox is just like Trezor, but with two key differences:

       It has a full 2.8 inch touch screen, and QWER keyboard with vibration feedback. This will let you input the pin and recovery seed more easily ( without the random order dictionary input ).
       It just signs and "don't know" any high-level meaning about the transaction, so it makes a unified interface for many cryptocurrencies with same ECDSA algorithm(secp256k1).
       
       For more information, please refer to the website above. If you are interest in the development upon keybox, join Telegram group https://t.me/keyboxdev .

   As BitShares is a DEX, there are many functionalities other than just receive and transfer, we plan to make a worker proposal to create a "full BitShares software wallet"  with keybox,  and make it open source. The proposal is not created yet, and here I want to ask BitShares share holders about your opinion about this idea:

    Would you like to have such a (software) wallet ?
    What platform(s) you need ? technical speaking, Windows, linux, MacOS and Android are possible. iOS is not supported by keybox now.
    Will it be better to integrate with existing wallet or create a new one ? i.e. integrate with beet (https://github.com/bitshares/beet) or Reference Wallet ?
    What functionalities do you want most ?

    Besides, any other comments are all welcome. Thanks you.

Considering the different habits of everyone, I feel that the existing wallets can be directly integrated with the hardware wallet. That way the user's choice is more free. There is no need to develop a new wallet separately.

This is a welcome addition to the BitShares ecosystem. Very grateful for the efforts of the Magic Wallet Team to develop and produce this hardware device. Integration with the Reference Wallet will great.

I agree fox. I don't think we need the overhead of a totally new wallet in order to provide HW wallet functionality.

Not that a simple sign / transfer in / transfer out wallet design wouldn't also be nice to have, just not an initiall requirement for HW.

Agreed.
