Proposal description

This is a cross-post from the Dash Forum

This proposal is to purchase three hardware wallets for our soon-to-be-released Electrum masternode functionality integration. We need the wallets for @flare to build and test the software from Mazaclub. The Trezor-functional wallet is now ready for acceptance testing, but we need to provide him with these devices to test each release as they are completed. We will also need them over the coming months / years for maintenace releases as Dash functionality is added to future Electrum releases.

The costs below include shipping.

Requested funding is as follows for the July 6th budget cycle:
  • 17.22 Dash for a KeepKey hardware wallet (125.00 EUR @ 0.89407 EUR per USD and $8.12 / Dash based on June 3rd average rate at https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/price-dash.html)
  • 15.96 Dash for a Trezor hardware wallet (115.90 EUR)
  • 5.50 Dash for a Ledger Nano hardware wallet (39.90 EUR)
  • 5.00 Dash reimbursement for the proposal cost
Total: 43.68 Dash

Exchange rate risk is carried by flare and not by the network. However, any changes in the actual fiat cost associated with the purchase (e.g., unaccounted for customs fees) may result in additional reimbursements owed to flare.

I am definitely voting yes. I do feel like including every hardware wallet is overkill though. Trezor is number one, supporting it should be more than enough.

I've got the Ledger Nano, and I haven't got a Trezor. (Although I will probably get one!)

The more hardware wallet options the better! We're talking just a few Dash here.

The idea is that we don't want to lock into a single option or play favorites. We want users and masternode operators to have options.

The other, less tangible benefits of integrating with more partners is free marketing (they will all email their registered users or previous buyers with the news), an opportunity for PR announcements, and newfound awareness and support from the management teams at these Bitcoin-oriented companies. The more of the Bitcoin community and its surrounding ecosystem of providers and investors that hear about Dash, the better.
