Hello Allex, Happy new year to you. Was wondering how far is Wallet 6January 18, 2022 at 7:25 am #11365
Hello and a happy new year to you too!
wallets6 is nearly ready. Last week I finished the online documentation for all components, which is about 60k words long.
I have only 50 tickets remaining, but this means nothing, because:
1. Some tickets have an estimated effort of less than a day, while a few will take me up to a week each.
2. How many days per month I can devote to work varies depending on other things in my life. Usually I manage to work about 15 to 20 days per month.
3. The effort of some development, dev testing, and integration testing tasks is hard to estimate beforehand. Testing can give rise to more tickets as issues are discovered. So it’s impossible to estimate time before actually doing the work.
So I am not in a position to give out any estimates. But it shouldn’t be too many months! My advise to you is to not wait for it, and then when it’s ready you will know, because there will be a RC release on the site, and a blog post announcement, long before I push anything on wordpress.org.
With this release I have decided to not rush things but to do everything properly, as long as it takes. This means that I am way over my initial estimate of 6 months, but I think it’s worth it. Many of the technical debts will be paid all at once when wallets6 is out!
If you follow twitter you will see the announcements.

That’s great… NO rush at all… looking forward so eagrly for Wallet 6February 4, 2022 at 8:15 pm #11415cryptdonationMember
Awesome to see the development nearing completion. Coders are modern day heroes.February 7, 2022 at 9:22 am #11424
Well, the people who build the Bitcoin wallet, the modern blockchains and smart contracts, are indeed heroes!
I on the other hand have decided to create the PHP glue code that will connect WordPress to these modern miracles. Less glamorous work, but I’m having fun with it nonetheless! I’m looking forward to finishing this release so I can move on to integrating Bitcoin LN and ERC-20.February 8, 2022 at 12:05 pm #11438megeanwassonParticipant
Hey Alex 🙂
In the meantime while we wait everything is working perfectly my side 🙂
I am excited to hear you are doing Bitcoin LN (Assume that is lightning) and ERC-20
That will be freaking awesome especially if you are doing lightning 🙂
GoodLuck and for Thank You I have sent you some small BTC (฿0.00051000) for coffee or beer or whatever you like 🙂

Thank you so much @megeanwasson! Your donation will go towards buying the coffee that is so necessary for development.
By LN I mean Lightning of course!March 17, 2022 at 6:54 pm #11593nicholasfushParticipant
