The Grantcoin Foundation is pleased to announce the release of the first mobile wallet for Grantcoin. The software works on Android devices including smartphones and tablets.
This QT wallet app for Android was developed by Grantcoin Foundation technology advisor and volunteer Troy Benjegerdes. Other members of the Grantcoin team have tested it on their own devices and confirmed basic functionality such as downloading the blockchain and sending and receiving Grantcoin. The app is now being released to the public for testing and feedback.
Known Issues and Limitations:
- The blockchain takes a long time to download with this app, compared to desktop wallets.
- You may not be able to back up your wallet.dat file using this app. If you lose your device or the memory gets wiped, you will lose any GRT you have stored in this wallet.
- Do not use the dollar sign character ($) in your passphrase if you choose to encrypt your wallet. If you do, you may be unable to access your coins.
Bounty for Testers: The Grantcoin Foundation will give volunteer bounties of 1,000 to 20,000 GRT to users who test the app and provide helpful feedback. The amount of the bounty for each tester will depend on the extensiveness, quality, and usefulness of your feedback, at the discretion of Grantcoin Foundation personnel. After we have received enough feedback from testers, this bounty program will be discontinued. Contact us to send your comments about the app after you have downloaded and tested it.
Use at your own risk. The functionality of this software is not guaranteed by the Grantcoin Foundation or the developer. The current version of this app is intended for testing, not for storing large amounts of GRT. Only use it with coins you’re potentially willing to lose.
