The most important security for normal person is keeping the device offline. You can have ten diffenent locks on your door, does that make you feeling safer?
If you can prove that the expensive Trezor has higher industry standard than popular phones, then you win.  Grin

Exactly! You can have 10 locks on a device that has the ability to connect and it eventually will connect. Bither lock can't protect you. Only the device that can't leak keys by design can keep private keys inside.
You are right that people trust their phones with some personal data. The security of a phone is good enough to store your FB password, but I won't trust it with my live savings.
How does your app get in the phone if the phone never connects to anything? How do you update your app? If the phone was infected before your app was installed, how can you be sure that it is not communicating?
Security expert can verify simple single purpose communication protocol of Trezor and its code base. No single person can verify Anroid.

Basic problem is that a phone can die from one second to the next. I had it. Woke up with phone alarm. Went to bus station and wanted to look what time it is. No reaction at all. Mainboard died and i had to wait 2 weeks to get the phone with text: we where not able to restore the data. It was a Note 2 from Samsung. So i would never trust a phone! I had some bitcoins in my phonewallet but i had a complete backup of everything. So no loss.

All electronics can die without warning.   You should always have backup/seed for any device.

Bither Cold has automatically backup strategies, and you can easily backup your cold private keys on as many SD Cards as you want.
Also Bither Cold Wallet is easy to clone between your backup phones.
We will also provide improved functions for backup and recovery in the future version.

Thank you. Smiley

In your opinion, a phone produced by Google, Apple, Samsung, LG, Moto is fail/brick/die/break? Then why billions of people using their sollutions every day?
The benefits of using a phone as a hardware wallet are:
1. Industry Standard;
2. Cheap (some android phones are even lower than $30);
3. Great user experience;

Thanks for your advice, and we will work hard to help people saving and using bitcoins easier and cheaper.

They will eventually. Most phone start to wear down after 1 year and a lot of phones stop working after 2-3 years. Also you skipped my security question, please answer it. Wink

For 5 years has my Moto Milestone been working properly so far.

You are right.
Backup is very important. Currently Bither Cold provides automatically backup strategies, and we will improve this function in the future version.

Thanks for your advice, it's very helpful. Smiley

I really like your implementation of hot and cold mode. Will try when I clean up my old phone.

My primary worry is whether it contains malicious code, and secondly whether is has major bugs. I do not have the skills to verify the code and compile the apk myself, so I will only test on a clean phone and test with small change. I do appreciate your work and thanks for taking time to develop an open source android wallet.

As for cold mode, the only thing you should worry about is the private key generating part. If it's really an offline randomly generated private key and you never connect your phone to the internet, your private key would be completely safe.

Bither as an open source project, more and more people will contribute to it. Major bugs will be found and fixed soon if they exist. However they will never put your private keys on cold phone in danger, because the private keys are separated from the outer environment physically.

Now the source code is open, this will definitely help your team getting more trust from users.

Just curious, what's the story behind the name "bither"? It always reminds me of "bitcher" or "birther", which are not very good for your brand image  Wink

Our website is Bither.net, it comes from Bitcoin and Ethernet.
We consider Bitcoin and Ethernet as the most important inventions that make the world better. To show our honor to them we combined the two words and named our project Bither.

Thanks for your support, Smiley

This $20 phone is a perfect match to your app.

Only downside is the OS is a bit old --did you test it on android 2.3?
