Hello everyone!

I recently pushed few PRs to migrate https://walletgenerator.net/ from Darkcoin to Dash and to translate it to Russian. They are merged and new version is available online now.
https://walletgenerator.net/?currency=Dash
https://walletgenerator.net/?culture=ru&currency=dash

However currently tab "Paper wallet" uses the original (and common for almost every other currency) background image https://walletgenerator.net/wallets/dash.png which doesn't really fit our logo imo. So I thought it would be nice to have it styled like Qt wallet i.e. to have some elements of https://github.com/dashpay/dash/blob/master/src/qt/res/images/splash.png for example etc

What do you guys think? Is there anyone here who have some free time and is capable of drawing/designing this? Or does it worth it at all? :confused:

Hey Udjin
i think you pinged me some time ago about a redesign for the paper wallet,
sorry that totally slipped by me,
moli just reminded me of Paper Wallets.
Do you still need some design work for that ?english or Russian paper wallet ?

Edit:
how do you say/write "Paper Wallet" in Russian Please ?

Well, I'm personally fine with original background image https://walletgenerator.net/wallets/dash.png but I think we can do better :) And it's the same image for all languages.

Paper wallet -> Бумажный кошелек

I don't particularly like the whole wallet design but our logo looks ok. And thanks for this, Udjin. :)

I'm trying to figure out some things on this wallet. What does "Brain Wallet" button do?
And on "Bulk Wallet", I don't understand "Compressed addresses". the "X..." keys on the right side are private keys?

Edit: I figured out the keys on the right are private keys and the keys on the left are public keys. But what's the difference between "compressed addresses" and normal addresses? Are they any better?

raganius already answered one part of your question and here is an answer to another one https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Brainwallet :)

A brainwallet refers to the concept of storing Bitcoins in one's own mind by memorization of a passphrase. As long as the passphrase is not recorded anywhere, the Bitcoins can be thought of as existing nowhere except in the mind of the holder. If a brainwallet is forgotten or the person dies or is permanently incapacitated, the Bitcoins are lost forever.

Early brainwallets were created simply by coming up with a passphrase. The phrase is turned into a 256-bit private key with a hashing or key derivation algorithm (example: SHA256). That private key is then used to compute a Bitcoin address, or a deterministic sequence of addresses. WARNING - This method was found to be very insecure. Do not use it. Humans are not a good source of entropy.
Please read all UPPERCASE and bold notes there carefully before you decide to use it. :rolleyes:

raganius -Thank you very much for the video, it's quite interesting. So... "compressed addresses" is just a misnomer, he didn't say if it's better to use them. I'd watch it over again later.

UdjinM6 -Thanks for this link, didn't know the "brain wallet" button was related to that.. lol.. (I didn't realize i could just press ENTER after putting in a passphrase and it would create a pair of public and private keys for me:))
Ok I just created a Brain wallet with a Dash address: XaqDwUQw18tFWQmSvpfDqm8GSDtaej67Vz
Please feel free to crack the passphrase. :)
