Hi ETN community,
I do realize the security of the offline paper wallet. However, as many others have said, it is seemingly not possible to check the balance of a paper wallet. You also can’t send only a partial amount of the ETN in the paper wallet to the ETN application.
Everything in the crypto world has to be the right balance between security and convenience. The mobile and web apps are very convenient, but don’t give me, the user, a great feeling of security when I am not in control of my own private keys. The offline wallet is very secure, but lacks convenience. I really feel there needs to be a better middle-ground solution.
It would be great if one of the following things were to happen:
Change the web app and/or mobile app to be non-custodial. In other words, you would have to import a 12-word phrase in order to use the web or mobile app, and your private keys would be stored in the browser when you do so. ETN would not have our private keys. Citadel does this and it works well. Note that you do not have to enter the 12-word phrase every time you login. With Citadel you choose whether or not the private keys are removed from the browser when you logout. And they can stay in the browser indefinitely.
Support for ETN on a non-custodial wallet like Exodus or Atomic.
An officially supported non-custodial desktop ETN application with a GUI (not command line) which can be used to view balance of ETN.
Any of of those three would be great. Thanks for listening.
