Any idea ? Anyone used carbonwallet.com ? It is a deterministic wallet.

Is there any development on this wallet?  It would be really nice, in fact fantastic, if it was brought up to date so as to be compatible with the latest deterministic wallets like Trezor:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=122438.0

and the android application called wallet32:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bonsai.wallet32

I have tested these two wallets and they are totally compatible with each other:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=122438.msg7183991#msg7183991

But the carbonwallet appears to be out of date and does not accept the word list that was accepted by both Trezor and wallet32.

In order to be totally compatible carbonwallet would need to implement BIP32, BIP39 and BIP44.

There is no contact information on their web page:

http://carbonwallet.com

Has anyone here worked on this wallet or know someone who did work on it or is working on it?

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

I just checked your post here => https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=637718.msg7184961#msg7184961

Are you taking this carbonwallet project forward ?

No (not yet).  I was wondering if there was anyone actively working on the project.

Last commit is more than one month old, so project is not dead, but no one is actively working on it.

This issue has been opened  months ago and is unassigned? Well that's a good way of telling that you shouldn't touch this.

Furthermore, this wallet is dependent on blockchain to relay transactions. It is not a full independent wallet.

The code looks good and the GUI is nice but no one seems to develop it anymore.

Any wallet will depend on blockchain to relay transaction. Is not it normal ? Or u mean BlockChain.info here ?

I meant blockchain.info website.

Here are firstline of file app/js/blockchain.js

Code:
// Here we hold all the interactions with the blockchain.
var BLOCKCHAIN = new function () {
 
  this.retrieveBalance = function(address, callback) {
    url = 'http://blockchain.info/q/addressbalance/';
    this.tx_fetch(url + address, callback);
  }

  }

Cant we make this.retrieveBalance independent of BlockChain.info ? I mean to say, the URL to be used will be in a config file and user may control whether it will be blockchain.info/biteasy.com/helloblock.io/blockr.io/his own blockexplorer URL running on VPS.

Yes you can. Just fork it on github and do the job. Code is very clear and easy to understand. If you know javascript, it is really a good basis to create a good deterministic wallet.

Hi,

Sorry didn't see this until now. I do have some plans for carbon wallet going forward and I'm also interested in any comments of course.

CarbonWallet uses electrum style passphrases and it would not be easy to move over to BIP39 as we already have people using the existing ones. BIP39 is still in draft, although I can see they are already out in the wild.

Yes you can. The main thing you need to be aware of is that when creating a payment you need to retrieve unspent outs and different services i.e. blockr.io vs blockchain.info have different formats for this.

I'm more than happy to look at pull requests for this or for BIP39. Makes sense to develop this all in one place.

Is it possible to make the source code independent of any third party API by having its own daemon running and fetching data from that ?

Yes. The daemon would need to be able to provide balances for addresses and unspent outs for when the user wants to create a payment.

Perhaps a modified version of BitcoinJ.

It'd be great to see CarbonWallet updated. Not taking into account the things already mentioned, I've noticed several features are just "placeholders" (or maybe they don't work for every browser?), which doesn't look good from an end-user point of view.

ICOs:  FidentiaX
MiniApps
        Binary Options:  Olymp Trade
BitPlutos

Which features and which browser ?
