What would you like to see in the BitBean Wallet?

What would you like to see in the BitBean Wallet? What features or what information do you think it's good to have on it and also, what information do you think it's unnecessary?

This tread will be like a dropbox of ideas and suggestions like a brainstorm in order to deliver one wallet that goes inline with the community ideals.

Thanks in advanced,

I'd like to see the wallet be a widget on my desktop that's always on. So I don't need to have a big window open. And I'd really like to see an automated install that backs up wallet.dat, so non-techies aren't intimidated by wallets.

Really, all of the commands should be accessible by non-techies. So if a rescan is needed, for example, they could bring up a list of options, find rescan (with an explanation of what it does) and click it.

Make it easy, and more people will want to use it.

Good luck with your coin

I know the design will rock already but I wanna see
Total Supply:
Market Cap:
Stake Weight:
Interest Rate:

So I don't need 4 websites open at all times :)

I'd like the wallet to be more user friendly with a comprehensive help files and 'how to's', the later (setting up you wallet, backups, staking etc) could be put on the web site. As these are
only documents, a noobs guide would be an advantage for everyone, especially use of the console feature. Best practices on how to manage your wallet and coins.

Backups as mention by another user should be automatic with a recovery process when errors are found during start-up, only takes a little disk space for the old wallets.dats.

Staking wallet option to start the wallet using minimal features just to get the wallet up and staking, leaving it encrypted but unlocked.

There is a typo in the "Bean Weight" tool tip. The word "Cumulative" is misspelled as "Cummaltive".

Hi Beaners,

I do miss a option to see seperate adresses within the wallet. Currently i'm using 2 adresses, within the wallet, and the total is ok, i only have some coins missing when looking with the explorer into the mainadress. Offcourse i could just send them all to the mainadress, but the advantage of using different 'accounts' within the wallet is lost that way. My 5 cents. regards :D

I imagine it's maybe a though one, but would be great to also be able to send from these seperate accounts, so i can keep a staking-adress, and a pay/receive active adress within the same wallet. OK, i'm going back to testing beer...

Have you enabled "Display Bean Control Features" in Options -> Display tab ?

After that is enabled ("Checked"), you will have a new dialog "Bean Control Features" in the Send tab, which will allow you to select specific addresses or even blocks to use in sending.

Also keep in mind, that when you send BitBean, any remaining balance left over is sent to a "Change Address", which is automatically created. In the "Bean Control Features" dialog, you can specify a Custom Change address, which you could use the the same address your sending from..if you want the remainder to be sent back to the same address.

Beer's not cold yet ;)

I would love integration of qr-codes for send/receive to improve access with phones (with logo, that would be cool) , maybe add a info-page with handy links <+qr's>, like tradesites, explorer, this page ;) , wiki, etc. (not sure if good idea, but serve it anyway: a cash translator ; 1000.000 bitb=btc 0.1/ $40 / €38 (example) bye for now...

Thank you for the suggestions. All these ideas are great and we will work to incorporate them into upcoming releases. Thank you for taking the time to post them.

Looking forward to the cold Beer! :-)

I'd like to see right on the wallet window title bar , right next to Bitbean-Vault in Big frigging letters The wallet VERSION NUMBER and a BIG red flashing warning light if the wallet is chasing the wrong fork.

Can anyone tell me - what is the cause of my problem?
I installed the purse, but it does not synchronize. A few days of hanging open to no avail.
Should the synchronization process be seen - as in other wallets - a line indicating the number of blocks loaded?
At me such line did not appear.
Help me please! While I keep all my coins in POSWallet

I'd like to see quick responses from Bitbean team when users are having problems. Like to see a solution for beginners like myself, who are trying to sync a Mac wallet but it only opens. I am not the only person to ask, I asked hours ago and still no response. If you want your bitbean to continue to grow, you must havew a more helpful community.

Call them Beansactions instead of transactions.

Video Tutorial and/or Illustrative PDF Tutorial to setup & use the wallet (For the most technophobic out there). Add to website/social media. Your current video is volunteered by a community member, as nice as it was a contribution your image is #1.

Update your roadmap, its still Q2 2016.

Proof of concept by video that the bean is indeed as it is said to be by a demo. Add to website/social media.

Remove the jokey you-tube videos. Replace with development videos... either on the code in work/the website on the ups and down of the project.... this shows passion in your work.
The most jokey you could be would be to make a video of people utilising and making a transaction for a make believe service... such as within a childs classroom and to narrate in layman terms the value of crypto in the forseeable future. Kudos if you are able to contact your local Department of Education for such a thing....

As harsh as the above sounds, it isn't a criticism. As I know you are volunteers and the above may seem daunting, once you 'give it a go' its not really all that bad and is water off a ducks back when you experience it.

Thank you for your recommendations. We have only just begun. This project has only just moved into full-time production in the last few weeks. As we move forward, we will take your suggestions to heart. Thanks again for taking the time to write.

Thanks for allowing the community to make BitBean a cool place for all of us. Improvements to the wallet? The only thing I see is that the sprouting is a hit and miss. I get excited when I sprout only to find out it was in "conflict" and it is not a real sprout. So it would be great to see every sprout confirmed. (2) On another note, the only other improvement (a simple fix, yet not related to a wallet improvement) is the misspelling in the May 4th Press Release. I know it sounds picky, yet there's an "it's" when it should be "its" (with no apostrophe)...I always thinks it's a good thing to present us the best we can.

sir/madam ,
supply a limited no. of Bitbean coins near about 300000 Bitbean coins per month only it will increase its price and promote it every where possible. Do not change its logo . Increase its transfer speed. make its unique .

That's all i want to suggest.
Thanks for giving me a chance to speak about this amazing and unique thing.
Thanks a lot
Good luck for future.
Congratulations for past achievement.

I think the wallet is great just the way it is, I am a software engineer, and although the urge to constantly improve something is important, I think it best to preserve the current format. It can become harmful to the stability to constantly change and update things. Although progress is undeniably an aspect upon which we all strive for, it may be important to remind ourselves of the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." This may be a useful component to ensure the longevity of the BitBean software.

Probably not related to the wallet itself but please improve the initial syncing time it's SUPER long T__T

append delete #24. fourbirds

id be interested in a page that tracks how many beans have reached long term gain date along with the ability to specify if you are moving beans from short term holdings or long term holdings when you withdrawal from the wallet. another feature that would be helpful for records is if each sprout could display an estimate of its value at time of confirmation in several common currencies. these 2 things would make record keeping so much easier.

A different colour for the icon when the wallet is locked (red for example), so you see clearly that you have to unlock your wallet!
