Well I can share single classes there but as I said I don't want to make it world accessible yet.

What I want is a community working on improving a single network/protocol core implementation in Java, and having 10 independent forks just reduces the collaboration. I want to create a functional core before releasing mainly to group interested people around it to help improve and maintain it, and then we can make it completely public.

Just to let the subscribers of this thread know:

Based on bitcoinj, I've created and uploaded a first, experimental Bitcoin wallet implementation for Android:

http://market.android.com/details?id=de.schildbach.wallet

You can send money just by scanning a QR code the app displays. You need to install one of the QR code scanning apps for this to work (e.g. "Goggle").

The app currently only works for testnet. Because testnet is very slow in transaction processing, it currently takes ages to update the wallet. Unfortunately, I can't switch to prodnet, because Android apps only got 4 MB of heap memory and that's not enough for the blockchain. You can use the emulator and assign a max heap size of 32 MB though.

Any news on this? The thread must be revived!

I also pledge minimum 20 BTC for a functional lightweight android client, but I might donate more if I like it and it turns out being actually used by other people, so I can exchange money with them wherever I am without juggling change. Smiley

Please continue this, I think it's quite important for BitCoin to have a portable version that's easy to use -- otherwise it's not much of a wallet.

And so the prize tag of the bounty had increased.

Andreas is making steady progress. I think the next release is blocked on a working BoundedMemoryStore, which I'm planning on tackling after a few other things.

Hello Everyone,

i just created my first Android App. It's a RPC client for bitcoind.
Right now it can show you some stats

(tap on the hashrate to start/stop mining)

and can send bitcoins to an address.

Feel free to try it out
http://lwinet-server.dyndns.org/external/bitcoiner/net.lwi.BitCoiner.apk

Plans for the future (if and when i got time):
-QR-code integration for sending and receiving coins
-Show correct account balance (currently the bitcoind api only counts the received coins, not the sent ones)
-Maybe instant currency conversion
-Localization
-Release source code when its not that embarrassing any more :-)

Any thoughts?


Belkaar

P.S. I don't want to qualify for the bounty but donations are welcome :-)

Didn't a remote client for Android already exist?  I thought someone had that one licked back in July.


"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

If so please point me to it. No point in doing the stuff twice.

How do I install this on my Android device?  Fyi I have a rooted Motorola Attic 4G running Android 2.6.1. and have terminal access.

Actually i just now found it in the bitcoin market.  Installs fine and runs, but I need to setup a server with a static ip I guess.

But what I would really like is to run bitcoin daemon locally on my Android...

It works just fine with a home server and dynamic dns (i.e. dyndns.org). Thats what i wrote it for.

Having a wallet on my phone is way to dangerous for me since i'm wiping my phone whenever a new rom pop up :-). One of the times I'd surely miss backing it up.

As I said. I'm not after the bounty. Just thought it was the right place to post it.

Installed fine, and fired up at first, but after inputting the neccessary data, I now get...

"Sorry!
The application BitCoiner (process net.lwl.bitcoiner) has stopped unexpectedly.  Please try again.

(Force Close)"

It doesn't seem to matter how many times I try.

Is BitCoiner available via the Market ?
(btw: I guess there are already two other implementations of that: "BitcoinDroid" and "Miner Status")

That's what the bounty is about ^^

I just got this new Android, and I might try porting the JAVA Bitcoin client to Android.  What would be the minimum requirements to claim this bounty?  If I can get a simple text or menu interface that is able to download the hash chain, mine coins, send coins, and do everything else that the regular client can do, does that mean I qualify for this bounty?  What is the approval process to obtain t he bounty involve?

I don't think you'll ever want to mine bitcoins on a phone, so that's not required. The bounty is not controlled by a single person so the requirements might differ. Most pledgers will probably agree that:
  • It needs to participate as a node in the network (e.g. no remoting of a Bitcoin client running on another machine)
  • Be able to receive and send bitcoins
  • Be open source (GPL, Apache, BSD, you name it, but the source must be distributed and we must be allowed to reuse it in other places)
  • Backup and restore would be nice
And as for the "Java Bitcoin client" there is none yet. There are only two implementations of the networking protocol: [mike]'s great work with bitcoinj (quite complete, and already at the base of a test client on android) and my BitDroid-Network implementation (which is quite unfinished because I wanted to put the blockchain and crypto operations into another module but never got to it, but I still maintain that for many connections mine performs better ^^).
I hope to see some of your code someday Cheesy

Wait, do free apps have to pay this fee also?
