[Developer-Bounty] Freicoin Bounty - Mobile Wallet - Done

Recommended Posts

As i want to establish some essential tools for Freicoin in general and i think it's about time that we involve some development not just of the coin, but make it easier to use and develop on. (yeah, everybody can spend it on a exchange, but i was hoping i do not have to drag my pc on a trolley to the shop to pay for a product)

 

 

After some discussion with the current donators we decide to make this as a single bounty for a mobile wallet in general (android / iOS)

 

The full bounty is for creating a mobile wallet for Freicoin. 

 

As there are several crosspost over several forums, this thread is the only one valid with up to date information and the only place to claim the bounty.

 

----- added ------

Bounty can be claimed for a fully working wallet for android / ios, released open source and provide binaries for those who do not know anything about compiling code. It needs to be a fully working product that everyone can use and it needs to be stable. Think user friendly, not something that just you as a developer understands. 

 

Some examples on type of wallets we have in mind to get implented on freicoin, but not limited to:

 

https://github.com/schildbach/bitcoin-wallet

https://github.com/bitcoinj/bitcoinj

https://electrum.org/

https://github.com/bitpay/bitcore

https://github.com/bitpay/insight-api

https://mycelium.com/bitcoinwallet

 

Freicoin Source code at github: 

https://github.com/freicoin/freicoin

 

 

 

Total Bounty : 1 BTC & 100 000 FRC

 

Donations :

 

- Fedde 0.2 BTC & 20k FRC (Given)

- Bicknellski 0.2 BTC & 20k FRC (Bitcoin part given 4260 FRC given rest given by Arcurus in advance)

- Arcurus 0.2 BTC & 20K FRC (Given)

- Maaku 0.2 BTC & 20K FRC (Given by Arcurus in advance)

 

From Freicoin Forums maaku has made another 0.2 BTC and 20K FRC, this makes the bounty for 1 BTC and 100 000 FRC

 

Update 17/12-2014 by Fedde

- Skirmant delivered a wallet based on bitcoinj and schildebach's bitcoin wallet and is working. Source code delivered on github. Bounty Claimed.

- Fedde and Arcurus have put up 100.000 FRC in bounty for finishing the Electrum wallet. That way we have 2 ways of handling Freicoins.

mobile electrum wallet is working well except it seems like the client is crashing on incoming transfers but that will be fixed after I get some sleep.

 

Debug images are viewable upon request,

 

I was unable to rebase 2.0.0 to the droid, so 1.9.8 will have to do for mobile wallet.

 

I expect usable wallet in 12-24 hours

 

Time frame on the bounty reward?

Cool, but my problem is, this has only been tested by you.

 

Have it been tested in multiuser enviroment? Are bugs removed so it's stable? And most important, how can users test it at all? Remember that it's people's money you play with in the wallets.

Any errors here is the same that people are loosing money ;) 

 

 

 

 

will post code after bounties are discussed

 

Discuss as much as you want. And no, the is no queue you can reserve in and you can not claim any % of the bounty in advanced.

When we are at it, what licence and copyrigths will it be released as. And most important, how do you see this in long term (issues that come up at later point)?

 

I am just saying this to ensure we get something that is really working, becouse software that is buggy, crashes and annoys people is going to do more harm to Freicoin.

 

Keep up the good work.

as far as droid: I am doing an x86 android build as well as ARM which requires me to build a number of additional things for android. this allows for easier debug and for those running x86 droid (http://www.android-x86.org/) to use the wallet. I have to completely rebuild python for the x86 version.

 

I am going to be pretty adamant here that I need at least a partial bounty payout (0.35 btc, frc can wait) before I am going to release the final droid version. The reason behind this is so I can get more *LONGTERM* redundancy in the electrum servers for use since everyone is badgering me about being broke (you guys should realize that the bounty funds are only going to be paying for freilectrum backup servers anyway)).

 

If you are so worried as to not having any code. I'll release a partially working code that allows you to create a wallet, and see an incoming balance, however it will not deserialize and once the wallet is closed it will throw errors upon opening. (your wallet keys are safe)

 

The license for this version (FreiLectrum Mobile) is GPL as is electurm for android and is a free download if you install via QR code method.

 

as far as concerns about losing your wallet... you have a brainwallet of 13 characters (deterministic wallet) that will give you a way to back up your wallet. you can also copy your wallet right from your /sdcard0/freilectrum/wallets folder (default_wallet file) and I suggest anyone do that as it is.

 

*EDIT* as far as the bird: lets decide on a logo and i will add it

as far as long term: i am going to be the official electrum for freicoin developer, I am getting access set up on github for the final release to be put on github.com/freicoin (aka the official freicoin repos). This access has been discussed and approved by maaku and jtimon.

 

So this is a long term project and I foresee it as such as long as there are those who are interested in running electrum servers with me.

 

now, if there is additional incentive then I can build a straight .apk for the wallet. but right now, I'm doing qr codes.

 

eventually the project (and other projects of mine) will be on the domain frei.co.in. but again, redundant servers are needed and the onyl way to guarantee long term hosting is (you guessed it) giving me at least part of the bounty to set up more servers.

Why 13 Characters and not some seed words like Electrum uses?

I vote for this bird:

I anybody knows people that are willing to share the costs to raise the bounty, please spread the word to see if more people are interested in helping out.

 

I think we (the current donators) have put up enough coins for now for the bounty and we can't just raise and raise the bounty for the whole community.

There are also a number of companies that will provide mobile wallets in Freicoin. 

 

Maybe if we can get more donations we can get those companies to provide a quote and a larger number of us can put in donations and pay directly to get this code done professionally in a lot less time.

 

What do others think?

While I'd like to see the mobile client be done by community, considering hiring a professional for it is starting to be more tempting as there is an increasing need for it. Though, while not the ideal solution, a webwallet could get us started too and offer atleast one way to do transactions on the go :)
