iOS app has been updated and it looks a little bit better now.
We are now focusing on security and are planning to open source the code when we are ready. Feedback or bug reports are much appreciated!
Meanwhile, now Counterparty gone mobile, I wanted to ask you guys what would be good/interesting applications of Counterparty technology from your mobile devices.
We are doing some experiments like e-tickets, participation points, mobile game applications, and access token to digital contents. But if there are anything else, you think you can do with mobile wallet, do let us know and experiment with it!
Have asset name as alias for address. E.g. when sending, type JPJA to get 1AnRKzwPZSPFUmjK822LBzfVd1CLJd9fGa (this is the owner of JPJA).
Allow sending of specified BTC amount together with a Counterparty asset in one transaction. I think this is possible, there just isn’t any wallet that has implemented it yet. This can be useful for discount tokens,
This new view on the iOS looks great! I will update my video as soon as i can I think using the LTB system would be great as not only will it help the adoption of LTB, but also its already built so you do not have to reinvent the wheel.
Discount token gets a +1 from me as this would be helpful for some projects of mine. Keep up the good work
keep up the good work I cant wait to see what you guys do with this. Also right now I am not seeing any other competition in the space for another CW mobile solution except fro GEMZ that only supports their token and BTC.
I tweeted my sheer pleasure at seeing and using this app. I wish you all the best in your endeavors. I truly believe that as regulatory framework solidifies and the Dex allows BTC trades, this platform will explode. Your wallet could see a massive boost.
Yeah I agree. BTC-Token trade is critical for Dex and is something we are looking in closely now. Say, the reason Counterwallet.io stopped supporting BTC trades in the Dex is purely due to US regulatory uncertainty?
BTC trading was disabled in Counterwallet because of bad user experience. With XCP and other assets the DEX works flawlessly. These are held in escrow. With BTC it’s different. Some may offer to buy XCP for BTC, and when you place a matching order to sell your XCP, the other party may not transfer BTC. This is really annoying, to say the least (you waste your time and a tx fee - although you DO NOT lose any XCP or have any other counterparty risk).
BTC trading is still allowed on a protocol level. You just have to use another wallet.
I think a solution is that whoever places an offer where he shall transfer BTC, also must put some XCP in escrow. If he does not transfer BTC as he’s supposed to, the other side of the trade will be compensated with XCP. This would require a protocol change, I believe.
HI - If the asset creation piece is an issue, perhaps its best to just remove it. After all, most people that would use a mobile wallet would use it for the token sending and receiving as opposed to creating their own token. I know for Scotcoin this would be useful as ‘less is more’ and 100% of our users would just want the mobile app for using Scotcoin and BTC.
I feel you are correct, however in the future it would be nice to have this option still as well as many mainstream users no longer use laptops, but they use mobiles. So for now, if the focus is not asset creation that would not break my heart, but developing it further in the future i feel is a good need. Its nice (when it works) to show people on the go that you can simply create assets. I have done this at my meetup many times.
We don’t know if we are going to remove it at all but I see your point it being not the main function users need every day. We are going to reduce the space dedicated for new asset creation after the next UI update.
Interesting you actually use the asset creation function for demo purpose. For now, we will at least keep it in app, but I would love to know if there are any other who would love the asset creation function in the mobile app.
Right now, our main concern is usability of the Dex. Once the Dex becomes more user-friendly and interactive on mobile, that would really make Counterparty and the Dex more attractive for lots of people.
