Introducing Walle7 MVP - cross-platform BitShares GUI
« on: May 06, 2019, 02:49:02 pm »


Walle7 MVP


Hello BitShares Community!

We are developing a simple and intuitive mobile and desktop BitShares GUI. It gives an opportunity to keep, receive, send and exchange assets.
Currently the app is in the testing phase and you can see how it works on your device: https://walle7com.github.io
We hope for your feedback and would like to hear what might be missing in the current version. If you see the potential of the project, it would ne nice to hear your opinion.


Live Example



You can try a live example where you can log in with a test account and see all the existing wallet functionality. We hope you enjoy it at https://walle7.com/alpha/


Available for Mobile and Desktop

You can build the application yourself from Walle7 repository https://github.com/walle7com/ for the web, use Cordova builder for mobile apps and Electron for desktop versions. Tested on Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Mobile Safari and Mobile Chrome, standalone apps for Windows, Android, Linux, iOS and macOS.

Here is a web preview: https://walle7com.github.io if you don’t want to compile from source.

Click and tap everything and if suddenly something does not work as you think - let us know in the Discord group https://walle7.com/chat/ . We can quickly add fixes where they are needed or put the task to the development plans.

We pay strict attention to privacy, so the application does not contain any analytics, and no data sent to the outside.


Fast



The application transfer weight is about 850 kilobytes: including embedded fonts, illustrations, code and layout.
Fast enough: loads from scratch in about 3 seconds including time to connect to decentralized nodes.

It is build on a small and fast JS framework with storing data with AES encryption, WebSocket Secure connection to BitShares nodes and gateways. Reconnecting on timeouts or other network problems. Automatic locking the wallet after 15 minutes of inactivity and showing Pin code screen. Manage touch actions on devices and correct frontend mapping on supported platforms. Background updates for transaction history and balances after successful exchange or withdraw.


Simple



We do our best to keep the application interface simple and straightforward to use. Made for the web, works in browsers, on mobile and desktops as portable applications.


Secure
User data is encrypted. Password is not stored anywhere. Beet integration for most secure transactions without a password.


Open Source
The application source code is published on Github. Once a couple of weeks there are updates of new features.


Latest Updates

6 August 2019
  • Send any supported asset between BitShares users. Now, when you click "Send" button, you can specify valid BitShares username, and on the right, a confirmation appears that the sending within the network is selected.
  • Validation of the withdrawal address. The address to which you want to send a transfer is checked for validity using gateways or inside the Bitshares network if you send funds to another user.
  • RuDEX and XBTS gateways added. Now all assets available in these two gateways are supported.

1 July 2019

28 June 2019
  • BitUSD and BitCNY have been added to the list of supported assets.
  • Now, when exchanging any coin for any, order book liquidity is checked.
  • When the gateway wallets for deposit or withdrawal are under maintenance, a modal is displayed with links to news and support page.
  • On the welcome screen, you can now enter a test account with one click.
  • On mobile versions, the link to the exchange confirmation with Beet is temporarily hidden until the availability for mobile devices.
  • On the main screen in the header now displays the username of the wallet.

05 June 2019
  • The project integrates support for assets created inside BitShares DEX. At the moment we have connected Obits, Peerplays and OracleChain.
  • Added the ability to make an instant exchange using the signing of transactions through Beet https://github.com/bitshares/beet.
  • Sparkdex gateway supported for a deposit, exchange, and withdrawal. Currently integrated SPARKDEX.BTC and SPARKDEX.ETH.
  • Modal HTML templates to speed up further development.

15 May 2019
  • Now you can log in to any BitShares account without a password. For example, you can use the "walle7-test" account.
  • The modal screen with the password request is now shown only at the moment of preparing for sending to the node. Your account password does not store by the application and is used only to sign the transaction.
  • Standalone web build is now in the own repository: https://walle7com.github.io It is based on GitHub Pages service and runs from the public directory, so now you can run the web interface on your desktop or mobile device without fear of your private credentials.


Features Survey



We run a small pool for the future of the project. The purpose of the survey: find out what features are missing for convenient use of the wallet.

- RUDEX Gateway integration?
- Native multicoin storage ?
- Night mode template?
- How does it compare to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cy.agorise.bitsybitshareswallet&hl=en_US ?

matle85, Customminer, olav:
Thank you guys for your feedback, it's very nice that you liked what we are doing.

looks good, how much funding would your worker proposal require?
First of all, we want to understand whether the community is interested in the wallet, the first version of which you are currently viewing. If yes, then we will be able to make a slightly more detailed development plan, and then it will become more apparent how much money will be required. If you have any ideas, it would be great to discuss them.

With BEET integration?
We started our project before the appearance of Beet, and it seems to have missed it. Beet looks like a proper implementation for integration into the wallet. I think that we will put it in a priority task for development. Thanks for your suggestion.

- RUDEX Gateway integration?
- Native multicoin storage ?
- Night mode template?
- How does it compare to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cy.agorise.bitsybitshareswallet&hl=en_US ?
Thanks for your questions. Since this is the first version, we have focused on ensuring that the basic features work.

Three gateways have now integrated: OpenLedger, CryptoBridge, and Gdex. RUDEX and others we can add quickly, but before that, we want to investigate all possible errors that occur with gateways, such as temporary disabling of deposits and withdrawals.

Right now we have a desire to make a high-quality wallet on the BitShares platform and connect stablecoins in it. It’s possible to think later about how to store other currencies natively.

To develop a beautiful dark theme, first of all, we need to create guidelines and prepare all the graphic elements. There are no technical problems in adding any design, except that someone needs to work on this.

Comparison of someone with whom it is probably the most thankless job. We started an attempt to create a clear interface for the end user, where the coins completed with information from other sources such as CoinMarketCap and CryptoCompare. If you look at any wallet, for example, Ethereum, then it will be seen that OPEN.ETH displayed as Ethereum provided by the OpenLedger company and so on. We wanted to get away from complicated figures.

Looks interesting and professional.

Wish the code is audited.

By the way, the app provides instant buy/sell feature but does not show the order book, makes it more like a wallet but not an exchange, which would be good UX if the market has good liquidity, but the opposite if the market is thin; on the other hand, it only consumes liquidity. Maybe some people will like the design, but I guess it's a small % in our current community (which also means we can attract those people with this product).

Good to see another mobile wallet, seems very promising. How many active users are using this wallet?

Thank you, good to hear that you liked the project.

Yep, you are right. We faced this problem of the liquidity of some markets. To solve this problem now the medium exchange price displays in dollars based on CoinMarketCap and CryptoCompare on the right of the input in order not to make a bad exchange. To calculate any trade, we use the order book, but it does not display in the interface, it may be worth modifying the modal dialogues where liquidity is low.

Good to see another mobile wallet, seems very promising. How many active users are using this wallet?
We posted a project three days ago on GitHub and just yesterday made this forum post. Therefore, there are currently no active users of the wallet. About 20 people over the past day have registered new Bitshares accounts through the Walle7 interface, we think that this is just to test the functionality. How much logins under existing BitShares accounts were made we don't know because there are no metrics inside the application for security purposes.

Good news everyone!
Thank you for all your wishes. We have a few updates in the project:

Login without password

Now you can log in to any BitShares account without a password. For example, you can use the "walle7-test" account - the entire transaction history made inside Walle7 app. With this account, you can see how the application looks after several completed operations.


Exchange and withdraw operations

The modal screen with the password request is now shown only at the moment of preparing for sending to the node. Your account password does not store by the application and is used only to sign the transaction. Also, it will not be offered for saving by the browser.


More transparent with github.io

Standalone web build is now in the own repository: https://walle7com.github.io . It is based on GitHub Pages service and runs from the public directory, so now you can run the web interface on your desktop or mobile device without fear of your private credentials. If you wish, you can copy the files to your device from https://github.com/walle7com/walle7com.github.io and run the index.html file, and the current version of the Walle7 will work from any folder on your local disk.

Nearest update

BEET integration

Now we are dealing with the implementing the BEET service https://github.com/bitshares/beet-js . This will allow anyone to make transactions inside the wallet without using a payment password. We expect that this will add trust to the wallet when it will be possible to use secure authorization through a third party.


Bitshares User Issued Assets

Also in the next update, most popular BitShares Issued Assets will be added. We plan to start with a few assets to test the deposit, withdraw and instant exchange functionality. After that, it will be possible to integrate all existing UIA.

Ahhhhhhmmmaaazing!

Please reach out if any complications with Beet. For your intended usage please have a look at the bitshares inject example.

You can also use beet for easy deposit of  BTC and others

Very cool, support this. Sparkdex (dex.bitspark.io) integration? AFAIK we are the only one with fiat on/off ramp.
