In the discussion of the ecosystem growth points I’ve mentioned one possible solution to creating a unified ledger app (please refer to the original post for the details) which would give hardware wallet users an ability to work with multiple parachains from within one app.
We’ve developed a proof of concept and the demonstration of such a solution. There is a documented example of running an app demo which involves transactions in Equilibrium, Bifrost, and Khala parachains all working from one app.
If you want your parachain included and the app to display the name of your parachain instead of the genesis hash, add a PR to the repo with following modifications:
I don’t know why this hasn’t gotten more attention and spawned more discussion, but I can very confidently say that a lot of users in the ecosystem are frustrated by the lack of ledger support for various parachains, so teams should at the very least look into the viability of this solution.
Yeah I agree. We need a proper solution for Ledger. There are already tx version breaking change in Substrate in past few weeks and leader application is a big blocker for moving forward. Parachain cannot upgrade to new tx version without waiting for new ledger version and no one knows how long that will take.
Have you been in contact with Ledger? I don’t think they allow blind signing for apps on their store beside for Ethereum. While I agree it’s annoying, blind signing is IMHO a very bad practice that should be avoided at all costs. Also if not going through the Ledger app, you’ll be asking users to install an app that hasn’t been audited by Ledger. This is yet another attack vector. As I wrote elsewhere, blind signing is the problem, not the solution.
Beside Parity Signer, I think we should promote QR code based HW wallet such as Keystone or Kampela (not sure where this went), or any kind of HW wallet that is flexible enough to support Substrate fast changes.
