Anyone tested running a MN through Encompass yet?
Just curious, who is behind Encompass and how reputable are they?
Most will agree that ThomasV is trustworthy, and I'm sure many thousands of BTC are managed with Electrum wallets.
Encompass being a fairly recent project, I can understand if not everyone is jumping at the chance to trust it with masternodes-worth of DASH.
fible1, my understanding is Encompass' current Dash support is limited to basic BTC-like funcionality, no Dash special features like masternode management, IX, or Darksend.
Hmm, ok, thank you for the feedback.
I really hope that the next feature we incorporate into Dash is 2FA. Currently you either assume a lot of risk of loss or you have to be a security expert to run nodes. I'd buy a bunch more Dash if it was easier to secure.
Only 3 coins on official release and we're one of them!
Unfortunately it looks like you can't run MN on encompass.
These are the help commands on Encompass:
There's no way to generate a masternode genkey on there, so you're correct, it's not supporting masternodes. It's not supporting Darksend and InstantX either. It's just a lightweight wallet, forked from Electrum, here's their github source: https://github.com/mazaclub/encompass.
You can read more from one of their devs here: https://dashtalk.org/threads/electrum-dark.3845/page-15#post-53171
Thaat sucks, MN with Trezor would have been great.
Yes, I agree!
Maybe in a near future?
Any hardware wallets that support DS or IX?
AFAIK Evan wants to create a command which will give you a key with whixh you can start the masternode without exposing the wallet with the coins. If he will do that there is high probability that we can do that even on trezor...am I right? eduffield?
He gave us some details about it here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=421615.msg10693474#msg10693474
Using a completely offline network-less computer to sign transactions is already "better than trezor" security. With Trezor, you're still plugging in a physical device with your private key on it into a networked computer's USB port. The offline masternode start implementation Evan is working on will be more secure than using a Trezor, if you do it right.
Thnx for that, I was thinking exactly about it but could find that.... yep that will be awesome!!!!!
I noticed something about encompass when I ran it with my Bitcoin wallet, it did two things weirdly
1: it was missing a whole coin worth
2: It had made new addresses that were definitely not my trezors
This had led me to believe that it is only somewhat integrated with trezor, the other addresses would just be the softwares and only the pin from the trezor to more or less protect it but not actually hold the private keys to.
I really hope Evan makes that idea a priority, it's too risky to really run a node now without being a security expert. It's a real barrier to adoption
I don't think their devs hang out here but you can post the issues on their github site: https://github.com/mazaclub/encompass/issues.
Or maybe ELM4ever can help.
I'd like to report that I ordered a Trezor and have been playing with some funds on the Encompass wallet:
1. Send and receive works great; keys are held on the device (someone asked) and you can not send Dash without the Trezor.
2. The setup was easy but a bit inconvenient to write down 24 seed words, but that's just me being lazy.
3. The wallet is easy to migrate as insalling encomass on any computer and hooking up Trezor will allow you to see your balance and do sends, no more worrying about backups.
Trezor is a lot of fun and very secure. Would any of you guys be willing to get together and offer a bounty to the Encompass guys to add support for Masternodes? I can drop in 100 bucks or so but I figure if a few of us get together we can come up with a decent figure.
This looks to me like the easiest and most secure way to handle Dash currently available.
we are getting good press with the TREZOR integration
most of the feedback i am getting (Social Media) is people asking me
how to do it/ guide !
so could anybody please post a Dash - TREZOR guide !!
that would be very very cool !
any word on this? Is any other integration with Trezor underway than the existing (difficult) encompass solution?
How much integration are you looking for? I highly doubt we will see an "all-in-one" Core wallet that does darksend, governance, masternode management, instantX AND uses hierarchical deterministic addresses and talks to Dash-electrum servers...at least in the pre-Evolution/decentralized API future.
To use a HW wallet, I think you'll have to be satisfied with a separate wallet software. Fortunately, it looks like we will soon have our own version of Electrum, so Trezor users will no longer have to rely on the multi-coin Encompass solution. If Dash adoption picks up, you'll probably see MyTrezor and keepkey's own wallet software supporting Dash directly, too.
The Dash-compatible Electrum client/server implementation was just paid for from the last monthly budget. I hope it will retain some of the cool plugin functionality of Electrum 2, which includes support for Trezor, HW.1/Ledger, and Keepkey. Trezor and Keepkey firmware already support Dash, but I'm not sure about btchip.
hey guys, any one know how to get dash to work on trezor?
I have found this: https://github.com/mazaclub/trezor-mcu
I have followed instructions but i get stuck at this point.
mazaclub/trezor-mcu-build:$FIRMWARETAG (after step 4)
i get this error : No such file or directory
I have tried messing around pointing it to different dirs but to no avail..
I agree, but on the other hand Trezor is Dash compatible from firmware version 1.3. Only thing lacking is a easy way to use it with Dash and make use of this compatibility. Installing with encompass does not give me the warm fuzzy security feeling as when i use the Trezor for bitcoins.
yes i know what you mean. Having to install 3rd party firmware is not ideal. Hey can you tell me how you did this? i have been trying all afternoon? if it makes any difference I will be making a guide so you wont have to help anyone in the future
An Electrum-Dash standalone wallet is being worked on. It will be released soon.
You could submit a bug issue or any question on their github site. Or you could ask them in their IRC freenode channel, #mazaclub.
Here's the page for issues submission: https://github.com/mazaclub/encompass/issues/
I think the level of integration we need is the ability to run MN from Encompass or Electrum; the rest it gravy and can be worked around.
Sorry I got as far as downloading the Maza software and then decided against using it for Dash for now, until a more easy solution becomes available.
Hmm, you should execute the build script, not type $FIRMWARE or such (assuming you want to use 1.3.0):
Then if the process doesn't crap out you should have a new file somewhere in there.
i think i have the file. But what do with it? Im in 1.3.4 i think.(newest Firmware)
MrZilch - Hi, I just read your slack pm that went to my mail...
I'm sorry I don't have a Trezor so I can't say for sure how Encompass-Dash works with the Trezor, but this is what someone explained: (https://dashtalk.org/threads/electrum-dark.3845/page-15#post-51016)
"Like Electrum 2.1, create a new wallet - select Create New Wallet - Hardware wallet type, then Trezor - that's it. Then you can go to Wallet --> Change Currency and select the currency you want (Trezor itself supports only BTC, LTC, Dash) "
You can read more from the TREZOR site: https://doc.satoshilabs.com/trezor-faq/overview.html
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
EDIT: Maybe someone else here knows how this works, please chime in.
now that the electrum is out , can somebody work on a guide for TREZOR Dash please !!
that would be very cool !!
