We can make a comparable device using exactly the same chips to protect the priv keys. we cant do that for someone elses device though. (it will need a small fpga to make certain bits “quicker/possible”)
if you want a nano style z2z pocket wallet that isn’t a phone. sure. It isn’t actually that hard. I can see why it would be hard to retrofit but not to make with sapling transactions in mind (this device would only support sapling and beyond, it would not be backward compatible) and it would be a bit bigger than a usb stick. but not that much (unless it has a full on screen, which I think it should for memos)
Or maybe I can RE the nano, just looked a bit more about it, looks pretty easy to get the firmware off. It is about time I looked at the nano a forum member was kind enough to send me. I will look into the code tomorrow. But I don’t think it will be possible due to this:
So, I can probably botch something together, but I am pretty sure it would be illegal for me to distribute it. Although I am allowed to make the modifications perfectly legally in my country of residence.
I know that your job is difficult… and you and your team are doing a great job!!
I’m pretty sure that your work will increase ZEC adoption by at least an order of magnitude.
Storing ZEC on a hardware wallet is the key to be safe. Having ZECs stored through shielded transactions is fundamental to spread ZEC adoption… otherwise it lacks a great part of privacy.
Keep us updated on the development, please!
Cant wait to see Z addresses on HW wallets. Wonder how far out we are talking here… a month or two? more? From what I understand bluetooth wont be possible with the Nano X/ not sure why…
Take into account that Nano X uses BLE so desktop integration is not a typical use case from Ledger’s point of view. We are not considering bluetooth part of the scope. We could do that as a follow up, we don’t expect bluetooth in Nano X to be too hard… it just needs a fair amount of work and testing to do proper mobile integration.
About timeline, our grant has already a delivery schedule. It is possible that we can be a bit faster, though.
Any update on this @jleni , please?
We’re approaching the end of 2020, I see no updates after more than a month from the last post.
The website zondax.ch still reports “Milestone 2 completed” and the last update was on July, 2020.
Any hope to get support in Ledger Live before the end of the year?
