This was created by @loon3 and after trying it out wanted to show everyone how cool it is so far. Currently under development, use at your own risk!

How to add the extension to chrome:

  1. Go the the github page and click "Download ZIP" on the lower right side
  2. Once downloaded, extract the zip file
  3. In chrome, go to chrome://extensions/ and enable developer mode
  4. Click "Load unpacked extension" and navigate to where ever you extracted the file
  5. Highlight the folder called "Chrome Extension" and click "OK"

At that point you should see the "LTB Companion Wallet" added as a new chrome extension and there should be an icon that appears at the top right corner of your browser!




@loon3 's github shows that this is still being developed so I wouldn't use large sums of coins until he says it is ready to go

Suggestions: On the "Wallet Settings" tab, prompt the user when they click the "Reset Passphrase" button before actually doing that. I clicked it just to see what would happen and it automatically reset the current passphrase so if someone was playing around after sending to their into wallet addresses, everything would be lost.

It might be a good idea to show the BTC balance somewhere near the LTBc balance on the first tab and then make the BTC balance show in red if it is too low to actually send a transaction.

I like how the cost per transaction is clearly shown to the user (maybe that would be a good spot to show the users current BTC balance?)

Overall this looks very promising! Awesome job, I know I'll be playing around with it!

    I don't care if the transactions take days, if only I can use low fees. Hopefully you can set the fees manually. Will definitely try this one out in the near future.

    @Omnibus , you screenshots are not showing up. Or is that just me?

    I just tried it on my phone and they're showing up there as well. It might be something on your end unless other people are having issues

    screenshots do not appear for me either.

    And yes, you'll be able to set the fees manually or at least it'll be cheap by default with a toggle you can turn on to make the next tx you make a high priority (higher fee) tx

    Screenshots appear for me fine fyi,

    this is looking great, its nice to see the screenshots because I havent tried it because its still early. This wallet will lead to website buttons like coinbase has that can just simply pull up your wallet and pay for things much easiser. Very exciting stuff @loon3 :D
