Edit: Wallet Generator is live and can be used form:
As you all know, there is a new wallet generator in development.
You can check a demo here (mobile-only for now): https://wrong-song.surge.sh/
The main focus was getting a simpler and modern interface, while making it smaller, which means faster load time on mobile devices.
I think we achieved both. Its simple, clean, and way smaller than any other wallet generator that I know of.
Just for comparison:
- liteaddress.org: 2600kb
- walletgenerator.net: 1200kb
- wallet.peercointalk.org: 851kb
- www.bitaddress.org: 916kb
- brainwalletx.github.io: 188kb
- Peercoin New Wallet Generator: 39kb
While other wallet generators certainly have more options, for the general enduser what really matters is being able to generate an address as fast as possible. And in this regard, we now will have a 20x lighter tool.
But that comes at a cost.
Basically everything was built from scratch, including a good part of the actual generator code (cryptographic/math libraries are 3rd-party tho). This could lead to bugs and other inconsistencies, so a review from this code by the core devs would be much appreciated, because yah know… don’t want to disapoint mr. Xavier here right?
