For the design guide, I spent a lot of time reviewing PRs and giving feedback. Treating the daily spending wallet like a real project forces many detailed discussions and design decisions, as well as a strict internal consistency, that require lots of back and forth.
Hopefully all this can get merged next week, but review will likely take a bit longer.
After the daily spending wallet is done, I think I’ll look further into how lightning wallets will evolve. Sign in with bitcoin is part of that, integrating wallets with other applications and services for authentication and payments. It also looks like stablecoins will become a reality very soon, with things like Stablesats
, and Taro/RGB on the near horizon. Taproot will also bring multisig to lightning, so there will be plenty to figure out. However the technical details will play out, we can already sort out many of the UX changes needed.
For the Bitcoin Core App, activity has really picked up. Jarol is busting through the UI implementation, and the design crew is finding a good pace (design calls two
). Other designers also seem interested. Gene asked today what he can help with, so I made the video below with an overview.
