The re-birth of NanoVault: Nault

Nault Wallet
A Familiar Interface

The Goal

The original goal of NanoVault was to be an open-sourced and community-driven wallet. Unfortunately, as much as we love and appreciate it, the progress on the main repository has stalled past year, with a list of unsolved issues growing and features broken. There has been no official standpoint announced by the original developer. So we now aim to do a clear reset and relaunch as a fork, updated with the latest security patches and bug fixes. Hopefully, this will attract more interested developers and collaborators on the git repo as originally intended. This should NOT be a one-person job. The strength will now rely on collaboration, and we need YOU.

Planned Features

  • Automatic fail-over if a backend goes down. Currently, a list of public APIs can manually be selected or fully customized via the app settings.
  • Overhaul of the Ledger hardware wallet third-party library. Please reach out if you are a developer who wants to dive into this. The libraries have been updated to the latest version, but there are more JS libraries to choose from apparently. The current Nault version has been verified to work with the latest Ledger Nano S firmware in both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20 using either web or desktop app.
  • Even better functionality for semi-automatic switching of a bad rep. For example, giving a message like “Your account’s representative is not optimal for the network, press OK if you allow Nault to change it for you to XYZ. Or press MANUAL if you want to select the rep yourself.”
  • Anything that the community comes up with! Join the Github.

How can I contribute?

  • If you are a user of the wallet, you can find issues and report them on GitHub
  • If you are a developer, you can clone the repo, create a new branch with an improved feature and create a pull request
  • A trusted developer may also become a direct contributor to the repository
