HD Wallet feature - new release date

QFT.

In this case … uh, no … no, it’s not. Makes no sense for the devs to disregard the established BIP39 protocol. A homegrown wordlist would have made any kind of integration with existing hardware wallets IMPOSSIBLE.

Glad to hear the team has changed course. Still concerning that a plan using non-standard protocols was even considered, let alone acted upon.

@Mike_Wagner @inccry, you bring up good points, thanks.

I’ve since checked on it, and it turns out I misunderstood the developers when they explained the delay. I’m editing the post now to fix my mistake.

What happened was that they noticed some formatting errors in the word list (such as erroneous punctuation), and need time to look carefully through what’s been done. I was then told that the devs have been and are still “developing the BIP standard protocols, such as BIP44, BIP32, and BIP39.” We just need a bit more time to make sure everything is in order.

Thanks @aaron for the detail!

Indeed, the words list defined in the incognito repository here is invalid :sweat_smile:.

It produces this kind of words (with spaces):

  'abandon',   '  ability',  '  able',     '  about',   '  above',
  '  absent',  '  absorb',   '  abstract', '  absurd',  '  abuse',
  '  access',  '  accident', '  account',  '  accuse',  '  achieve',
  '  acid',    '  acoustic', '  acquire',  '  across',  '  act',
  '  action',  '  actor',    '  actress',  '  actual',  '  adapt',
  '  add',     '  addict',   '  address',  '  adjust',  '  admit',
  '  adult',   '  advance',  '  advice',   '  aerobic', '  affair',
  '  afford',  '  afraid',   '  again',    '  age',     '  agent',
  '  agree',   '  ahead',    '  aim',      '  air',     '  airport',
  '  aisle',   '  alarm',    '  album',    '  alcohol', '  alert',
  '  alien',   '  all',      '  alley',    '  allow',   '  almost',
  '  alone',   '  alpha',    '  already',  '  also',    '  alter',
  '  always',  '  amateur',  '  amazing',  '  among',   '  amount',
  '  amused',  '  analyst',  '  anchor',   '  ancient', '  anger',
  '  angle',   '  angry',    '  animal',   '  ankle',   '  announce',
  '  annual',  '  another',  '  answer',   '  antenna', '  antique',
  '  anxiety', '  any',      '  apart',    '  apology', '  appear',
  '  apple',   '  approve',  '  april',    '  arch',    '  arctic',
  '  area',    '  arena',    '  argue',    '  arm',     '  armed',
  '  armor',   '  army',     '  around',   '  arrange', '  arrest',
  '      typical' ...

I’m glad that you’re planning to use the global norm BIP32/BIP44/BIP39!

I was also wondering how you would generate the seed phrase from existing private keys because it doesn’t seem to work like that. I’m glad to see that will be the default for new users, and you’re not trying to do anything ‘tricky’ that could fail.

Keep up the good work :+1:

Seems like it would be easy to correct this by simply copying the words from one of the many sources that didn’t fuck this up?

playing with emotion is fun :laughing:

Yes, @Pseudonym. We use this one: https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0039/english.txt
And what we are doing is to implement it.

Would it be possible to get a more accurate estimate?
I would like to have the new wallet up and running before my next transfer

@Pseudonym We are getting things ready. Hopefully, it can be released this week/ next week.

Looking really forward, as it will make the backups for newcomers much easier etc. @aaron can you already confirm, that it will go live this month or is another delay to be expected? Thank you :slight_smile:
