We NEED a better client.

BUT we shouldn't wait.

WE can collectively pay programmers, raise a fund, evev share revenue once it profit.

Anyone interrested?


======================

Two most wanted features:

1. encrypted wallet file
2. multiple wallet management

If you want to do this, what I would do is start working on a list of needed improvements. Post them here and let people comment on whether they're important, poorly thought out, or whatever. Then start gathering contributions towards a bounty fund. Put a bounty on each improvement that gets some agreement and document what has to be done to claim them. (Is submitting a patch sufficient? Is a pull request? Must it be accepted into the client?) Then perhaps break the larger tasks into sub-tasks and put on intermediate bounties.

It was an offer of a 20 BTC bounty that got me started looking at the bitcoin client code. So it definitely works.

I personally don't think your 20 BTC bounty request is too expensive.

But we still need more discussion, and need more bitizen's involvement to get a real start.

I don't have the imagination to understand exactly how much finally needed, but I'm personally willing to put some money(including BTC) on contribution to a better client.

But what specifically do you want to see?

Simply put bounties on the features that you want... they don't have to be substantial just a few BTC.

I have, for example, implemented CSV export of addresses and transactions in my client due to an initiative like this.
