Proposal description

Hi,

        I'm DASH enthusiast for almost 2 years now. I always wanna contribute to DASH, but did'nt know how :-) But after hardware wallets gets more popular and price of DASH goes up - keeping 1000 DASH to run Masternode started to be huge burden. Then I realize that many people want to run Masternode in secure way from wallet hardware and for many of them this may be too difficult and to long to do. So then i've started realizing my idea. I bought all popular types of hardware wallets and started coding. Because I do not wanna anything for nothing I first created something that can be shown to all :-) After many sleepless nights and some technical challenges I'm very glad to present:

        With this website You can very quickly start Masternode on Mainnet or Testnet in secure way (even from internet caffe being on vacations!). There is no need to use custom firmwares, installing anything more that is needed to use Trezor (i mean more than trezor bridge). No python, no logging to remote servers, no using Dash Core wallet. You can just use Your browser and Trezor! The idea behind this is that this site should be most userfriendly and even more secure. All crucial and confidential actions (signing, etc) are done in Trezor and browser. Your Masternode private key NEVER leaves Your computer and it’s NEVER being transmited. I hope that I achieved goal of easienest :-)

         The site at this point is quite well tested (thx Splawik21 for testing and moral support!) and it's ready to use. It’s even accepted by SatoshiLabs (creators of Trezor)! I hope that anyone will like it!
       
        As for now I’m asking for some reimbursements that will help me on next stages of this humble project. Among other things i have plans to add support for Ledger and KeepKey.

  1. Development 2 months - 60 Dash
  2. Reimbursement for HW wallets needed for development and testing - 20 Dash
  3. Secure hosting - 10 Dash
  4. Reimbursement for the proposal cost - 5 Dash

Best regards from Poland!

This works for me. Although there seems to be overlap with what babygiraffe is doing, I am not technical so I imagine we can do with having both. This one certainly seems like a perfect approach to the problem.

No, it's quite different. This site supports all browsers for Trezor (not only chrome). And it's available for fast usage without installing anything more that is needed by hw vendor.

babygiraffe is sorting out a hierarchical deterministic (HD) wallet. I haven't seen anything about starting masternodes from a hardware wallet.
Could you point me in the right direction as I would like to have an easy way to start my mn from a HW wallet as soon as possible.

You can link a masternode to dash stored in a trezor wallet. The instructions are in the trezor docs here ... https://dashpay.atlassian.net/wiki/display/DOC/TREZOR

But I'm not sure if that's what you mean. Splawik21 also tells me that his friend is working on linking a masternode to a nano ledger S hardware wallet. You could ask him if you want more info.

This is a great tool and just what I have been looking for.
I would like to see spending of rewards.
Please could you post a youtube video showing someone starting a masternode using the tool.
Cheers and +1 vote from me.

Right now the investment for a masternode is so big, that the technical challenge is the lower barrier. Masternode owners are only 1620-4427 persons. If you are ready to invest $80k for a masternode the few hours for setting it up wont hurt much.

yes but we must have easy tool for nontechnical sheik from dubay too, or other emperators country who must have all masternodes :D

It's not about setting it. It's about fast, easy and secure way to start it even if You don't use Your own computer.

Starting masternode from Hardware wallet (Ledger nano S in my case) is a long wanted feature . BUT :
-websites need maintenance and servers , and thus is adding a recurring cost . While I understand it's "easy" in terms of usage , my personal preference would to have the feature in the wallet .

so next question arises :
-shouldn't this functionality (masternode starting with Hardware wallet) be developed together with the "HD wallet proposal" from Babygiraffe ?

I'm currently working on adding Ledger support :-) KeepKey will be third. About rest. The idea was to make it as simple as it can be and something that You can just use - without searching, installing, configuring, etc

is there a use case for it? I would appreciate very much if it would provide server monitoring (CPU, disk and network statistics)

What do You mind? In what way?
Reply

I misunderstood the headline - you should have written "setup" instead of "starting"
in this case I support your proposal ;)

I've been waiting for something like this!
Seems pretty expensive but I don't know if it is too much or just right.
Hopefully someone with more software knowledge can chime in on the cost.

I'll be voting yes but it would be nice to have more information like what VPS provider are you using on the backend and what are the monthly costs.
Reply

It's a dedicated BSD server behind Cloudflare. It's not VPS because i wanna keep it more secure. Currently In this collocation only I have physical access to it (no USB boot etc). Costs are around 40$ plus setup,etc.

I am not familiar with the wallet sphere but are there any web based programs for the standard 3 hw wallets out supporting another crypto? And there is a chance that the wallet developers could move this direction as well. I would have to assume there is some limitation they faced, say over creating a chrome app.

When I did the resarch i didn't found one. Best support (libraries, examples, etc) is for Trezor. Also for Trezor there is web wallet available at: https://wallet.trezor.io
