Orchard watch-only wallet

Is there already a wallet that supports importing Orchard Viewing Keys?

In more details, I need

  • to upload Orchard Viewing Keys (not spending keys)
  • to get Orchard shielded utxos with up-to-date witnesses
  • compatibility with testnet

I’am aware that there are many affords and grants to implement Orchard, but I’m getting totally lost in their current status.

Described in the Zcash protocol spec 5.6.4, currently there is not support for this, I’ll dig around more:

There is no Bech32[m] encoding defined for an individual Orchard full viewing key; instead use a unified full
viewing key as defined in [ZIP-316].

Described in the Zcash protocol spec 5.6.4 …

I’m asking something else.

Yeah, Orchard keys and addresses should be shared in unified format.

My question is: Is there already a wallet to which I can import my unified full viewing key containing an Orchard fvk?

Support unified full and incoming viewing key import & export. · Issue #5687 · zcash/zcash · GitHub

ok , so zcash-cli is not an option

No, currently not supported. I raised the issue about how I personally thought seed and key imports (or at least one method) should be prioritized in the following release.

how about

It’s an issue that I’m definitely tracking and I will post any updates about it that I see

We don’t intend to support this immediately.
