Title: Looking for beta testers on a Bitcoin Wallet app
Post by: ncoelho on August 16, 2018, 10:20:09 AM
Hi there,

I'm Nuno from Blue Wallet. We are looking for beta testers to have early access to our app and help us on the release process. Mainly testing and giving feedback.

Let us know if you want to help us out. PM or reply here.

PS: This is a serious project in production with users. We are here to have a conversation (any feedback is welcome) and to listen to the community to develop a kick-ass wallet. It's open source and you can run it on your own. Not a scam!

Super thank you!

Hello Coelho, First of all i want to congrats for this great project.

Ok, lets start with the page. You have asimple page there with basic information, and i would like to see some more screen shots from the wallet there, and if you can do a video with a full explain from the wallet, that would be awesome. In the https://bluewallet.io/#features section there say open source project and there is the git logo, maybe you can add a link to https://github.com/Overtorment/BlueWallet there. i see you add the link in the bottom of the page but wasn't easy to find at all. You say Flexible fees and that's awesome, but what about send coins to multiple addys in one transaction, is that possible?

I would like to test your wallet from my ipad but i don't want to risk my coins, if you want i can give you my depo addy in your wallet and if you send me 0.001 and addys to send money i will make some tests. PM me if you are interested.

Hope you can make an android version of the wallet before this happen again https://www.coindesk.com/apple-removes-blockchain-bitcoin-wallet-from-app-stores/

Good luck with the project, and hope it become a kick ass wallet!  ;)

Unfortunately, I do not have an IOS phone to try your wallet, but it looks good, I want to point out the following points:

 - Redesign your site: The site seems unprofessional, the information provided is scarce, the templates fixed, everything needs to change.
 - Fees: I've seen some pictures about the wallet[1]; it looks like you should write the fee in BTC, is that true? Also, there is no auto fees option.
 - Private keys: Your wallet supports RBF "BIP125," but nevertheless I can not restore it using 12/24 seeds "only SegWit Pvt keys."

It would be nice if it supports Hardware Wallets "Ledger &Trezor."

Always keen to test out new wallet software, even though I highly doubt that I'll ever be convinced to switch from my current favourite (Electrum). Only that I never try untested beta on my device. Happy to test something for desktop if you ever come out with that (and why not?).

But adding on to hugeblack's comments:

- Plausible deniability shouldn't be marketed - this is a "feature" of any proper wallet, though of course I guess if it is built in as GUI, it could work better. I'm just saying that thieves know what they're after and probably know people can provide fake wallets.

- Fee estimation's wonky on many wallets, if you get that formula right and implement it, plus RBF, you're okay.

- Features aren't really that much different from existing wallets, so you really have to provide an edge. You've at least got to match Electrum's coin control (input control) and be compatible with native Segwit (not just P2SH).

Any chance we'll see an android version coming (there's just apple on your site as far as i can tell)?

Huh? ??? What does "Replace By Fee" (aka BIP125) have to do with 12/24 word seed mnemonics? (aka BIP39) ???

I don't see any mention of this wallet being BIP39 compatible or even that it is an "HD" wallet... as it seems like "HD" wallets are on their "To-Do" list:
v3.0.0 beta
Support HD (multi-private keys) Support bech32 addresses

NOTE: They're currently only at v2.2 beta.

Hey HCP or OP, any idea what the strikethoughs mean on the landing file on the github landing page?

Does that mean that it's done or you're leaving it for now. As I'd suggest you try to get a bit more on the app before you open it up for a beta test as it doesn't look like there's so much there at the moment (but whatever, as long as people don't use high amounts then you're good). And It's always nice to see a new app here - it generally improves the other ones at least as they can pick up on information as to what people want and security flaws.

If you're having trouble with a qr code scanner, there are a lot of apps that suggest downloading Google's QR scanner (I assume they make it for IOS).
