Hardware wallet and minting

Was just thinking: it could be interesting to securize minting by using a hardware wallet like this one here.

You would by default be only signing valid coinstake transactions. Pin code would still be needed to move coins around.

You just plug it into your raspberry pi and you are done! What do you think?

Looks like it could be rather simple to implement such a hardware wallet:

We just need to make a Peercoin fork of this code: https://github.com/LedgerHQ/btchipJC/

And then upload it to one of those USB token: https://www.yubico.com/products/yubikey-hardware/yubikey-neo/

Any sponsors around? Should we create a peer4commit project?

Yeh this looks interesting, I say start a peer4commit project for it, I’m happy to fork the code and see what needs to be changed

Just ordered me a Yubi key to :slight_smile:

and made a Peer4commit project http://peer4commit.com/projects/156

Hey, great news, happy to hear that from you :slight_smile: I’ll do my best to help.

I’ve tested my new ledger wallet yesterday, it’s an astonishing piece of technology, really powerful and easy to use while feeling very secure.

Makes bitcoin usable again for me as I’ve stopped having bitcoin core running on my PC and have never been really confident on using an existing mobile wallet app.

That is the kind of things we gain by staying as close as possible to bitcoin core.

Have you already forked the project on GitHub?

EDIT: Ok, found it: https://github.com/FuzzyBearBTC/btchipJC
