Sia Wallet Phone App/Cold Storage

Hello foundation,

It would be a lot easier as a host to have a sia
wallet phone version to manage/view the current
contracts setup, to make sure when we leave for
buisness or are not home everything is running
smoothly and we could update pricing and contracts.

Another proposal is currently there isn’t a good
cold storage option for siacoin.

So do you propose a full wallet for the phone? Or a lite wallet that connects to your main node at home or whatever?

I don’t really agree with this statement. Downloading siad or Sia-UI, writing your seed down on paper, sending coins to that wallet, and then deleteing the Sia software from your computer is extremely secure.

A lite wallet, where hosts can manage the hosts when they can’t acess their computer.

In regards to the second part, I was mainly referring to a hardware wallet.

Ah okay, this is actually going to be addressed by Sia Host Manager v2. There is no release date on this(as it is 3rd party software by a community member), but it is coming at some point.

Unfortunately sharing wallets across multiple active devices(for full nodes) isn’t possible with sia’s current architecture, so “remoting in” is kinda the only option as of now.

Also, Nate, if you do end up asking for a community subsidy to fund further development, I think that’d be pushed through in a heartbeat.
