Dear Grinners,

It’s Nate from Vite Labs :kissing:, and here I bring a piece of big news to all of you! I’m so excited! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

:boom::boom::boom:A USER-FRIENDLY GRIN MOBILE WALLET is released :boom::boom::boom:You don’t have to hold your GRIN on nodes or exchanges anymore. And I promise you will love this wallet! It’s so simple, swift and safe to complete a GRIN transaction. MOST IMPORTANT! VITE WALLET IS AN OPEN SOURCE WALLET, Github:GitHub - vitelabs/vite-app-ios: Vite Official App for iOS. No other promoting words, experience it yourself!

(This link is about iOS beta version and official one will be released in a few days and Android wallet will come very soon)

The below instructions are focusing on the methods of using transaction files. If you don’t want to watch pictures you can just watch the video:

Send a GRIN via Transaction Files
Let’s make it by Apple’s Airdrop first and WhatsApp second.

A. The sender clicks “Transfer” and it will skip to the B.

B. The sender enters “Amount” and clicks “Generate Transaction File”

C. After confirming, it will skip to the below picture. Then the sender clicks “Share Transaction File”, you will have multiple choices, like Apple’s Airdrop, or WhatsApp. Let’s choose Apple’s Airdrop first.

D. Blackey ( the Receiver) will receive the file in his Vite wallet and Vite wallet will automatically process the file after clicking the “Accept”. Then he needs to click “Receive and Share”, and there will show a lot of interactive modes, similar to what displays on the Sender’s wallet (yes it’s me), and click Apple’s Airdrop.

E. The Sender will get a pop-up like the below pic, and click “Accept”. Then another confirmation is to broadcast on GRIN’s nodes.

Yes, it is this simple, safe and swift! Yes, it is! Okay, let’s have a look at how it happens by WhatsApp. (Blackey is sending them back to me :grin:)
A. Actually, the initials parts are very similar. Let’s click “Transfer” and you will have three ways to complete a GRIN transaction in Vite wallet. And let’s choose “Using Transaction File”.

B. Blackey enter an amount and click “Generate Transaction File”

C. After confirming, the sender (Blackey) clicks “Share Transaction File”. He has multiple choices, like through Apple’s Airdrop, or through WhatsApp. Let’s choose WhatsApp this time. He is choosing the contact - Nate (Yes, it’s me :sweat_smile:)

D. I ( the Receiver) receive the file in my WhatsApp, open it and send it to Vite wallet.

E. Then Vite wallet will process the file automatically and display it as “Received” and after I click “Share Transaction File” there will have multiple interactive modes as before and we choose WhatsApp and send it to Blackey.

F. Blackey receives the file and sends it to Vite Wallet. Vite wallet will tell Blackey that I have received the file and he should finalize and broadcast it to others.

G. After he clicks “Confirm”, there is a pop-up in Vite wallet telling that GRIN has been sent successfully.

Click the above link to download it! You’ll never regret using it! :grin::grin::grin:

Nice wallet, but I have some question:

  • Is it a full node wallet?
  • If not, how does it connect to Grin network?

It’s a GRIN wallet, which is connecting the full node offered by Vite Labs. And in the near future the URL of this full node will be available to implement in wallet.

No offense, there is already an open source grin iOS wallet built with React-Native, also need a full node running outside.

I think he is just showcasing right? and I deeply believe Vite wallet is better. No offense to that one. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Look good, good job, can’t wait to try it out.

I am so glad to see more people are participating in the development of GRIN mobile wallet. Vite wallet is one supporting multiple public chains and it has its own feature in supporting GRIN. Welcome to compare with others and build a better GRIN.
Here is the coding on Github:

Vite wallet is also supporting GRIN transactions via HTTP and Vite Address. All plans have their own advantages and disadvantages. Welcome to look the details on the above github links.

Very cool! Thanks for providing this service to the grin community

Yes you can receive GRIN through Email on Vite wallet. It is similar to via whatsapp, which has been described on the above text.

For now, Vite wallet is supporting two types of transaction files.
One: grin-deposit-xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx.response.json

Two. xxxxxxxx.grinslate
