Trezor and Maidsafecoin

Dear all, has anybody succeeded in sending MAID to an address in their Trezor wallet (i got the hardware today so couldnt resist playing around). So far I seem to have lost a tiny amount MAID trying to get it to work. I guess in an emergency you could compromise your wallet by digging out the private key, but for day to day purposes it appears to make no sense. Am I right here?

Dont think they support it but heard they plan to support Omni soon. You can derive your keys from seed word so dont think they will be lost but i wouldn’t be putting large amounts on there.

Thanks. Yeah, i sent a tiny amount there to see what happens. The price will have to move a lot before i start trying to recover them.

As of June 2016, OMNI was laying down ground support for integration with Trezor.

In Oct 2016 MAID support was one of the ideas at a Trezor-sponsored hackathon.

More recently in August 2017, someone leaked footage of what appears to be support for OMNI on Trezor, but I have no idea if this is reliable.

I hope Trezor integrates support for OMNI/MAID soon. If they do, I think many more people will be willing to invest in and hodl MAID. I also think it would be great for laying the ground work for MAID to Safecoin conversion in the future (I.e., Trezor would be incentivized to support Safecoin), much like if you held BTC on Trezor, you automatically got BCH and BTG. That would also help to address concerns over “what’s the point in supporting MAID if it’s just going to go away when SAFE launches” too, I think.

Thanks Sotros25. Sounds interesting, although I fear there might be strong correlation between their interest and MAID´s position on coinmarketcap.com.

I think the main driver for Trezor Omni integration is USDT

Best to say NOT YET.

At this point in time you would still need your private keys to import into another omni-aware wallet.

So what is the best way to store MAID right now?
Is it OMNI Wallet? (www.omniwallet.org)

Is there some sort of MAID equivalent to hosting a Full BitCoin Node?

Lol as you can see I’m not an expert by any means

But If MAID experiences a big surge I’m sure a bunch of us will be holding alot of money that could start looking pretty juicy to hackers.

Anyone have the solution?

Yes, it’s called Omni Core, and it is a Bitcoin full node that includes Omni protocol support. You can also use Bitcoin paper wallets.

Just use the gold standard bitcoin paper wallet security. bitaddress.org and best to go offline

From Trezor today

"Hello James,

We are only evaluating the support for these coins, but there is no official statement or ETA yet."

I’d suggest any other trezor users drop them an email expressing their desire for MAID to be added too. It only takes half a dozen emails to make an impression.

I talked to trezor company owner on facebook. He does not care about omni. They focused on trezor2. They will not use 3rd party implementation for security reasons and they do not have capacity to add alts like monero, so do not count with omni any time soon or ever.

Anyone should just store them inside if they want to use Trezor, and then pull the keys out one day when they want to send them somewhere

If you want it offline & able to transact, the only option I know of is Armory on an offline computer, with transactions that can be broadcast from Omniwallet.

However, I don’t think Armory sees much development, so who knows if omni support will be ongoing.

It would sure be helpful if Trezor would support any coin a person wanted to store in it. But since I know nothing about development I don’t even know it that’s possible. But given what I’ve seen while following the development of the SAFE network I’ve come to think that there is little beyond the realm of possibility. For what it’s worth I did send Trezor support a message asking for Maid and ultimately SAFE coin support. Thanks to all who contribute and Merry Christmas

From Trezor Support this morning:

“We are evaluating MaidSafe support, if the support will be featured we will inform our customers in a timely manner.”

What more can be expected?

Hi guys just want to know if you can store your maids on a trezor hardware wallet ?

You can but you’d have to expose your recovery seed to get access to them again once sent. They have built in omni compatibility, but they are evaluating how much support there is before they decide what coins to add next.

If you want it added try sending them a request for it. The more they get the more likely they are to consider adding it.
