I didn't see any new donations to the project. Do you have any skin in the game?
I said that I had only just found out about it & looked forward to trying it out, that was very late last night my time - as yet I haven't tried it but freely offered my opinion on it's name as others have done which was obviously a waste of time - maybe as I hadn't donated anything as yet in the 15 minutes since I first saw it, I'm in no rush to try the wallet out & in even less of a rush to make any donations to it if at all now - congrats on probably bouncing me off the list of potential donators Undecided

You're going to let someone on a public forum who isn't involved with the project turn you off from the project? That's kind of a silly reaction if you don't mind me saying. Why not judge the project on it's merits instead of random posts on a public forum?

It was more the OP thanking him for being the thread bouncer that rubbed me up the wrong way, I felt that my participation was maybe unwelcome, btw I am not anti gun as such & I hope that came across in my original comment - I was just saying what I thought others of a non military background may make of the name, it's also no big deal to me what it's called anyway - if there exists a better name then that just helps the project to bring this up for discussion

I will certainly though check it out & also donate if I find it of use which I'm sure that I will, just atm I don't happen to need it so there's no rush - oops as writing my Jessie alarm for $4.90 just went off - perhaps I may need it sooner than I thought that I may

I found an old Dell Inspiron and put xubuntu on it.  It's kind of weird to starting it with "LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libcryptopp.so python ArmoryQt.py" but it works.

I think I'm going to have to do something similar to get armory compiled in Lion.  I had no luck with the instructions on your site so far Sad  It was complaining about not being able to find libcryptopp and then about 64 bit something.  I'll have to try again and post the errors.  I saw someone having the same problem in IRC, but they never got it compiled either.

I'm about to try an offline transaction! Smiley

Otoh,

You're absolutely right.  I was amused by the comment, without regards to who or why it was said.  It's comforting to me to see folks really sticking up for my project, even if it was inappropriate.  In this case, it was inappropriate -- I have no intention to create a hostile environment,  and I never wanted to suggest that people need to donate to participate.  Sometimes I'm a little tactless... 

I am very much interested in seeing discussion about the program, and understand how others are receiving it.  Feedback will help this project tremendously, completely separate from donations, and I do appreciate your comments.  I think it's a little late for me to re-brand the program.  The name was original "Bitcoin Armory" which didn't have quite the same "violent" connotation as an arbitrary "Armory."  By the time I changed the name to just "Armory" I was already desensitized to the underlying meaning of the word.  Assuming no legal troubles related to "The Armory", I expect I will just keep it and hope the same happens to everyone else.  Hindsight is 20/20, but there's worse situations to be in...

I hope you will forgive my tactlessness and consider spending some time with the program itself, and let me know what you think.

many thanks for the explanation, understanding & apology which is completely accepted np - an offline cold storage for non geeks is so important imo for Bitcoin adaption in many fields, especially for the uber wealthy 1% of the 1% that the name, though maybe could be tweaked, won't actually affect at all the success of the project & if it succeeds then you can have different named flavors for different consumer demographics, ie for mine: The Secure Offline Newb Wallet which directs to Armory (Newb) login

I shall certainly check it out & give feedback, I'm about to be traveling so it won't be just right now most likely & you never know, perhaps the name will become more appropriate as the project develops, added wallet lasers that eliminate all malware (BTC wallet sniffers) on your comp bundled in  

re tactlessness, lol don't mention it - I'm black belt at that & 50% of my posting is under the influence I expect, most mornings I wake up & think OMG WTF may I have done last night  Lips sealed

For those that aren't part of the Alt-Clients thread, I just posted a tool I created to leverage Joric's PyWallet to migrate your Satoshi wallet to Armory.  You can find it here:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=56424.msg791695#msg791695

This is a temporary solution until I get something integrated into Armory.  If you don't mind some command line stuff this should work great -- tested on Win 7 64-bit.  Should work on linux if you already have all the packages installed to run Armory, and copy the .so file from Armory into this downloaded directory.

Simply run PyWallet (included in zip-file) to pull your keys out of your Satoshi wallet, then run my tool (ArmoryBulkImport.py) to import them into your Armory wallet.  Because of the keypool size, you are guaranteed to get at least 100 addresses added to your Armory wallet.  This should work fine offline, and then you can create your watching-only copy and put it on your online computer. 

Click the link above for more details.


I'm about to try an offline transaction! Smiley

Did it work?  (besides the send-tx bug that gives an error which I can't fix until next week...)

Home from vacation and a bug-fix release!

I had introduced a nasty bug into Armory just before leaving for a week, probably causing all sorts of confidence issues for first time users.  Those issues have been fixed!

--Sending transactions work as expected (ledger updates immediately with number of confirmations)
--Signing offline transactions no longer fails if there is a blockchain file on the offline system (weird problem, but fixed now)

Thanks for your patience!

I like the heading on the Bitcoin Media.  Armory, it's THE PEOPLE'S VAULT!  (I'm the capitalist to the core, no, not a communist, just love the sounding of the name).

Just donated!  Don't worry about sending me any trinkets.  I want you to save all that time and extra resource for your project.  What you are doing is tremendous.

The price of BTC is going higher these days as well.  Good omen!

Thanks!  Well at least PM me your email address, and I'll send you the encryption seminar.  There's no reason for any of the donors not to get that Smiley

A lot of you have been waiting for this feature, so please help test it!  Gimme feedback!

Version 0.60-alpha-RC1: Satoshi Wallet Migrate/Import!

Finally got a migration tool integrated, and it works with encrypted wallet.dat files!  Import from encrypted or unencrypted Satoshi wallets, with or without the address pool, including address labels, into an encrypted, unencrypted, or new Armory wallet.

A special thanks to Joric for providing me such excellent reference code to get the wallet-decryption working. I donated 5 BTC to Joric for his help!  Now, if all you want to do is pull your private keys out of your wallet.dat, you can use Armory to dump them into a new wallet, and then use "Backup Individual Keys" to create a text file you can print out. 




48 hours left in the crowdfunding!
It doesn't look like I'll make the $12k, but I will still be able to take a pretty significant chunk of unpaid leave.  If I make it to $6k, I will cut a full day off my job!   I wish I'd gotten RAM-reduction going by now, but instead I was listening to you and implementing features that I were in high demand (and not major overhauls of the application).  Plus, the RAM-reduction is half-done, and hopefully be implemented in the next couple weeks!

I pledge $49.99+ in btc when it hits beta. I have been on the losing side of up front costs too many times - while this seems like a slam dunk, it is a personal issue for me. I check the armory thread all the time.

OT question about deterministic wallet: If someone were to get a few private keys from a deterministic wallet, can he extrapolate the data to retrieve all the keys?

good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment

There is one chain code and an infinite series of private keys.  If an attacker gets one private key and nothing else, that's all he gets.  If he gets PrivKey(i) and the chaincode, then he can calculate PrivKey[i+1], PrivKey[i+2], ..., but not any of the ones before it (i-1, i-2, ...)

Choosing not to do this upfront limits the amount of people that can trial the software. People by nature like to feel it, touch it, taste it prior to making commitments and this factor could have caused some missed donations. From reading user comments and your write ups I was filled with anticipation willing to give it a try when I discovered this fact. O.o My daily user only has 2GB so I couldn't play with Armory. SOAB :sigh:

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

I also must wait for the ram-reduction overhaul before I can enjoy Armory, as I still use WinXP 32bit. Once I get my hands on a fully functional (not just testnet) Armory, I'll probably be impressed enough to donate.  Wink

I've pledged a 5 BTC bounty for someone to write an open source script for making large wagers on Bitlotto (atm the bets are for 0.25 BTC each so to wage 10 BTC takes 40 tx which is a pain to do manually), if a wallet service enables a 'repeat transaction n times feature ie same amount, from same address (or different ones if that's more practical) to be sent to just 1 receiving address (that month's Bitlotto address) then I would award the bounty to who ever made this first
