Having met or read about a few people in the bitcoin community, I have come to think it's a very relevant question and you can better weight their opinions having an idea of how many Bitcoins they hold (or do not hold.)"Never ask anyone for their opinion [...] Just ask them what they have -or don't have- in their portfolio"
I think the blocksize needs to increase sooner than later, and BIP101 looks like the best tested solution and also the easiest of all the alternatives to build consensus around (easiest is a relative term though). I advocate creating "fee pressure" to control blocksize rather than limiting blocksize to create fee pressure. Fees were being paid before blocks filled up, so there is a mechanism to do this that works. It was done through default relay rules, and miner tx selection policy. We should use these tools to encourage users to pay fees which will in tern make them voluntarily economize of blockchain usage .Hi Aaron!
What are your opinions regarding the Blocksize-issue? are you for BIP100(increase of up to 17%)/BIP101(8 MB and up to GBs)/BIP103(2-4-8-32MB)?
Do you hold bitcoins yourself(in the trezor,web Wallet,mobile wallet or desktop wallet)?
What do you think about bitcoins future(block halvening,openbaazar etc)?
here's the answer I gave to realvirtualcurrency.com:How and why did you choose the name bread wallet?
Thanks for making such a great wallet!
We do plan to eventually add support for multiple "accounts", mainly to help users better manage their funds.Are there any plans to give more ability for user customization with pockets and being able to change the transaction fee?
Also, are there any plans to add coinmixing or stealth addresses?
Web and desktop wallets are vulnerable to desktop malware. And web wallets are additionally vulnerable to "phishing" (tricking users into entering their password into a fake version of the site) and man-in-the-middle attacks (a way to break secure web connections)Hi Aaron,
My father wants to know if you can explain why Breadwallet is more secure than other wallets (such as Blockchain.info) in a way that could be understood by a 50 year old with minimal technical knowledge.
We love Ledger. However iPhone apps don't yet have access to NFC, and we feel the secure enclave gives users a comparable level of security.Hi Aaron,
Is there any plan to make Breadwallet compatible with Ledger Nano or Ledger Unplugged for cold storage?
I don't feel comfortable answering questions about my personal finances, but I will say that I am convinced bitcoin will eventually become the new global monetary standard, probably a lot sooner than even most bitcoin enthusiasts imagine. New monetary technologies have only come along a few times in human history, like when metal working was developed and people started using precious metals as money instead of strings of seashells (wampum). The impact of this kind of event is difficult to overstate. I recommend this essay on monetary restandardization by Curtis Yarvin: http://unqualified-reservations.blogspo ... ation.htmlHello Aaron
I was re-reading Antifragile by iconoclast thinker Nassim Taleb recently. He writesHaving met or read about a few people in the bitcoin community, I have come to think it's a very relevant question and you can better weight their opinions having an idea of how many Bitcoins they hold (or do not hold.)"Never ask anyone for their opinion [...] Just ask them what they have -or don't have- in their portfolio"
I'm now asking every participants the same question:
- Do you mind to tell us which percentage of your net worth and/or liquid assets you hold in Bitcoins ?
1) The biggest issue for new users is writing down their recovery phrase. We plan to add an optional key escrow service to make this easier while still not allowing us any access to or even information about user's funds. We will also add bitcoin buying for the patchwork of legacy payment methods, using various exchange partners around the world, and also core wallet financial privacy enhancements.Aaron,
First, I want to thank you for developing a great wallet. It is my primary hot wallet, and I recommend it to anyone I can. I also appreciate your desire to make Bitcoin more accessible to the "average" user, which means simplicity and ease-of-use.
Now a few questions:
1) What are the main features you are thinking about adding in the future to Breadwallet?
2) What do you think about the recent RBF addition to Bitcoin Core? Do you see Breadwallet supporting that feature in the future?
3) A silly question, but nonetheless: What is the best way to get support for Breadwallet? If "average" people are going to use it, they will need support, and I didn't see anything on your website. I actually had an error occur a while back (BW gave a message that the transaction didn't occur [BW hadn't synced yet] and told me to do it again, but after I did, both transactions went through), and I wasn't sure who to contact. It wasn't a big deal, so I ended up dropping it, but I know people who would not use a wallet that didn't have some type of support mechanism.
Also, a feature request: I would love to have some type of notes field associated with each transaction in Breadwallet. I was recently going through some old transactions and I couldn't remember on a few of them what they were for. It would be great if I could put in a field something like "For a Gyft card at Amazon". Just a thought.
Again, thanks for developing a great wallet!
We haven't chosen to implement these experimental payment networks yet due in part to the drawbacks you mentioned. My own feeling is that something like side-chain elements will become a better option to solve those same problems while maintaining decentralization, financial privacy and security, but will continue to watch the space closely as various projects progress.Hi Aaron! Thanks for taking the time to do this AMA. I know Breadwallet has a good reputation for security. What are your thoughts on lightning networks/payment channels and the requirement to store signed transactions as part of the protocol? And BIP-47 payment codes, specifically securing the metadata (which is unrecoverable from a master seed) that must be stored by the wallet if using BIP-47?
Can i purchase Bitcoin with my Itunes Balance ? Just Curios i have enough balance on there i can invest it...Hello, I'm Aaron Voisine, founder and CEO of breadwallet.
breadwallet is the first iPhone wallet that connects directly to the bitcoin network, which also makes it the first real bitcoin wallet running on a secure-by-default platform. (malware hardened and hardware encrypted) It's designed to be as simple and clean as possible, and for the bitcoin nerds out there, it's open source, SPV, and deterministic. Our goal is to make bitcoin safe and easy, and bring the advantages of a truly decentralized digital currency to the billions of people who use money, but have yet to start using bitcoin.
Ask me anything, starting December 1.
