Something occurred to me today. I don’t have any programming chops, sadly, so I thought I’d run it by you guys.
CoinSlinger-- a small, open source app that serves one function. You feed it a private key, and an address. It makes it happen.
Available on all operating systems, and as an android app with qr functionality.
Something like this doesn’t sound like it would be too difficult to make (would it?), but to a noob, this could be a game changer.
I wonder how many people out there are hesitant to get into Bitcoin because they don’t have much in the way of technical ability, and are worried about their ability to store it safely away from their teenagers porn malware and what have you.
It’s easy enough to make a paper wallet. Importing it can be a little more daunting.
How many of those people might be tempted to try Peercoin for the first time, due to knowing they will have a solid way of retrieving it from storage?
Bitcoin has blockchain.info, and who knows what other options. With peercoin I’m pretty sure the only option is importprivkey, isn’t it?
