Software News   Software News : First release of AmiWallet
   posted by phoenixkonsole on 6-Feb-2015 15:28:16 (3010 reads)
Hello,

this is the first release of AmiWallet.

AmiWallet allows you to easily add credits to you indieGO!-Account.
Also it allows to donate coins to Developers or between developers.

Not supported at this point are transaction between normal users.

Normal user to dev = ok
dev to dev = ok
user to user = not allowed (this will change at a later point)

Additional support for other coins will follow.

indieCoins are not like Bitcoins.
indieCoins are based on real money and similar to payback points (a in germany well known bonus system /cashback system)

It brings some other benefits as allowing micro transaction (not interesting here but for other things)



indieCoins are available at www.ares-shop.de
Any purchase on www.ares-shop.de will be honored with at least 5% cashback. Some may get more based on my mood.

10000indieCoins are payed out each month (or more if revenue allows) to honor top10 developers (counted by downloads in a month) with 1/10th of this sum.

Every customer of www.ares-shop.de since 2009 can request a 5% cashback for his purchases.

AmiWallet makes it easy to find your favorite developers and donate remaining credits.

Of course you can also buy a app in the indieGO!- Appstore from your favorite dev ; )

Besides buying indieCoins you can also earn them.

1. For each news item (regarding a release in the store, or indieGO! and or AresComputer related things) posted on a Amiga-Forums "news-section" you can request 1000indieCoins .

2. For writing a review in (doc(x) or odt format of anything released in indieGO!-Store you get 1000indieCoins per page (max 3 A4 pages).

Please ask prior writing it because some may be done already.

I would like to collect those to build a growing paper Mag (epub and printed)

More offerings will follow.

One thing I would like to add later is a possibility to order Pizza and Cola ; ) We will forward those requests to existing services.

Please report bugs : )
Will be honored as well but for this Broadway will come with a Feedback assistant.

The service fee for a transaction is temporary set to 10%. Foundations (something like "gemeinnützige Vereine") will get a 0% fee.

Some people will also have lower fee. By default it is 10%. This money is collected again to pay hosting and the monthly developer bonus.

More versions are available at the indieGO!-Appstore

Just wanted to warn you that AmiWallet is completely missing transport layer security (TLS)

Hi,
Yes reason is that not all supported systems offer ssl/tls yet.

The risk is zero to loose any money because only registered devs can recieve money. And those transaction don't happen from client to client.

So no hacker could transfer anything to a anonymous account.

We will resolve the issue soon with a own encryption system.

As soon this is done we will open transaction in any direction. (But also than transactions are tracked). This is no anonymous system.

Just use a unique password or let the system restore /auto-create one so in case someone snifs your wifi he gets only access to this one.

If someone has a keylogger running on his computer, this doesn't help either.

It's utterly iresposible of you to offer a service relating to finacial transactions that is not secure.

Then don;t support those plaforms at all.

That's not really the point.

You should have resolved this critical feature before even releasing a beta!

No one with any sense would use your system after gaff like this.

Huh? Your excuse for negligence is some other criminal activity might expose thisinfo anyway? No point locking my front door then the burglar might just come in through the window....

Sometimes I think people have been unfair to you on these fora, but I'm afriad you just proved them right....

Well... if you have a problem with it in this state than don't use it.
Again.. the service is still safe. So where is the problem?

Do you have a wired connection to your angry neighbor? Me not. The chance is higher to be spied out on Windows every day.

The only problem is that the password can be read out and so just use something unique which isn't used for anything else or use a username you don't use anywhere else.

And? Nothing which can happen from that point is irreversible .
What i can offer quickly is a two point validation (email with pin) for each transaction.
-> But really guys.. I know how much i pay out -> we are talking of 300potential users (21 devs , where around 5 will be just test-dummies).. We know each other.
Huh?

Calm down a bit... this is nothing where you could loose something.
This is a service where "I" (in words "I") throw money out to users to spend it and motivate devs. Just a funny thing. Paying in (real money) and paining out (real money) is done by "me".. not a computer.

Drama drama.

BTW: I am using one of those limited systems and the real security pain are those which offers the needed functions.

Whatever:
We are working further but I thought some may have fun with it anyway.
It is fun.

Don't stess yourself, isn't there a graphic app you could work on? Your last sense is really nice... you start with "ahh you arm boy" and than prove the others right.. cool because you were IMO one of those already.

------
Everyone else please wait for a updated version...

I agree, this should not of been released without proper security in place.

All you need is someone to sniff public unsecured wifi(not everyone has wired internet), and they have obtained the users username, password. Oh no worries, amiwallet is no use to a non-amiga user.......... the again how many people use the same password for many accounts, that user will then risk other sites they belong too once the details have been obtained.

If I knew I was released a crippled software I would of at least implemented other protection techniques, like the simplest form for your issue would be encryption, use a public and private key encryption between Amiwallet and your server, or even at minimum some form of obfuscation before sending.

If you have no knowledge of implementing public key encryption or obfuscation.. stop now and learn about it.

@phoenixconsole

I don't want this to sound discouraging, but security on any financial transaction is an absolute must - no-one will use an unsecured system even if the developer does say there's no chance of losing money.

Don't take this the wrong way, but the reason why AmiStore took so long to implement wasn't the GUI - it was getting the security correct. You asked why AmigaKit re-invented the wheel and made their own app store when you already had one in the works - but with this release you've answered your own question, I'm afraid.

Work on the SSL - and if a system doesn't support it (does any system not support SSL at all?) then don't support that system. Then do another release, and it'll be taken far more seriously.

(Please take this post as constructive advice, which is how it is intended)

Amistore doesn't use Hollywood for networking, but a seperate network client.

No, you jump to a conclusion there, it doesn't use a browser.

Payment is done via browser at least.
Downloading as well.

I didn't meant you directly when I wrote about a plugin development. Was just a sort of open letter (my fault should have made it more obvious.

Meanwhile I am glad to have found a developer.

Payment is currently via Paypal, and yes the only way to access that is in a browser.

No it's not handled by a browser, there is a separate client.
