What

This CCS proposal is for 3 months of full time Feather Wallet development.

The goal for this proposal is to get Feather out of Beta and release the 1.0 version.

Background

See the previous CCS proposal.

What I want to work on

To ensure the first major release is as stable, robust, and reliable as possible I will be mainly focussing my efforts on polishing the existing feature set (and extending it where needed).

  • Fix bugs and issues as they arrise
  • Further improve the UI/UX (layout, actionable error messages, etc)
  • Improve documentation and user guides
  • Add more compile flags for minimal/alternative builds: (no-Tor, no-Websocket, etc)
  • Refactor parts of the codebase
  • Allow compiling on more architectures
  • Extensive QA testing on all supported platforms
  • Commission a redesigned logo
  • Upstream changes to libwalletqt / wallet_api
  • Improve the setup procedure (Windows installer, Debian package on PPA, mac DMG)
  • More advanced coin control: manual input selection and individual output labeling
  • Extend hardware wallet support to include Trezor devices
  • Allow opening multiple wallets at once

Once the is more clarity surrounding Triptych-compatible multisig (see 1, 2) I will continue working on integrating multisig into Feather.

As always I will rely heavily on user feedback to determine where to put my focus.

Who

Hi, I'm tobtoht. Creator of xmrguide and maintainer of Feather Wallet. I have been an active contributor to the Monero ecosystem since April 2018.

Some of the things I have worked on are:

  • Created and maintained guides to set up Monero on Tails and Whonix (xmrguide, reddit)
  • Made miscellaneous contributors to the GUI (most notably Tails support)
  • Maintained a list of .onion remote nodes with their status
  • Co-created Feather Wallet with dsc

Proposal

40 hours per week at 45 USD/hour for 3 months (mid May to mid August) for a total of 91.5 XMR. At a rate of $236/XMR.

Progress will be reported in #feather on OFTC. Monthly updates will be posted to /r/FeatherWallet in the form on release changelogs.

Feedback and comments are welcome.

To donators: In the week since I made this proposal there has been some very significant volatility, making it difficult to establish a "fair" XMR/USD price. As such I had to adjust the quoted price down several times because the difference had grown larger than my risk tolerance. I have currently settled on ${current_price} + 20%, in the expectation that the price will recover a bit after such a steep decline.

To ensure I can sustain myself in the coming months AND the community gets its money's worth, I will extend the time spent on this proposal in case there is significant price appreciation over the next three months, like I did with my previous CCS (1.5 months overtime).
