Just curious - wondering if I can put coins in there "safely"
oh related question - when you create a wallet it shows testnet underneath the name.. although I explicitly told it to not create a testnet wallet. Is this a bug?
.. and lastly would like to "lock it" with a stake but the web wallet doesn't have that as an option. Guess color me a bit confused
Based on what has been said here, the code actually runs in your browser, and nothing is ever run on the server. This also means if you clear your browser cache, you will need to re-input your seed.
On the other hand, it would be trivially easy for someone to put something less then honest on a website. Trust it with what you can afford to lose.
The wallet is a fork of https://copay.io/, so it is as secure as that. As Lee stated, the seed (and hence private keys) are kept and computed locally in your browser's local storage and everything is run client side. The server never has access to any of the private data needed to spend coins.
Hi Dave, since we're using a fork of a Cordova app will there be Chrome extension and Android app released or will it be exclusively hosted online?
I'm not 100% on the plans there, but I believe that was part of the reasoning given for choosing that as the base back when it was being discussed.
Either way, the code is available on Github, so I would assume there is no problem with a Chrome extension/Android app.
It is not real clear what code is what on github. Any clue what parts are used and how for the web wallet and blockchain explorer?
It appears a bug to me; I was able to confirm it was on main net going into advanced settings for the wallet. Also, the address starts with Ds. Was able to successfully send main net dcrd to the wallet.
hi when will be good win wallet?
@shoshin was referring to the copay forked code. That is at https://github.com/decred/copay. I also know they depend on Insight and I suspect it depends on the other stuff forked from Bitpay. That said, I'm just guessing as I'm not involved at all in the wallet dev, so I don't really know for sure what depends on what. One of the wallet devs would have to answer that.
Cool... That is a start. I am just wanting to put the code on a private server for myself and some friends. That whole "not trusting anyone" thing.
