Yes I do agree, secure and easy to use coin custody would be a big benefit.
This would be a distraction from developing our own SAFE wallets and work on the Network, and also we don’t have a strong knowledge of Omni so I would say this isn’t the best use of our time. It could be one for the CEP if Omni’s reasons for not providing wallet support is lack of funds.
I never was, but was involved in quite a few meetings with their board at that time, but things seemed to break apart when the price collapsed and other protocols superceded Omni.
There is also the possibility that Trezor adds support for the Omni protocol directly in their beta wallet as they have done the same for lesser known crypto currencies. A decent possibility as there is a bit of an arms race between Ledger and Trezor hardware wallet in the SE/Asia region to support USDT omni protocol version due to it being heavily used by most exchanges there.
This would be ideal IMO and even easier to use than Omni Wallet, so I sent them a query/encouragement for adding direct support.
You cannot extract the private from trezor, or from any hardware wallet. You could regenerate it from the seed in a software wallet, but don’t do that because you would lose the benefit of a hardware wallet.
Okay - naïve question - since trezor is a hardware wallet and the private key never enters the (omni trezor) wallet … Shouldn’t it (in theory) not matter at all if someone trusts omnitrezor or not…? I mean… Hardware wallets are made for use in hostile environment where you can’t even trust the keyboard of your machine…?
well - it (the trezor) shows amount and recipient before you enter your pin on the device - for sure the wallet could try but if you don’t check the data on your trezor before hitting send it’s a bit [not the trezors fault] i guess …?
ps: … i didn’t try it myself yet … i just wanted to point out that at least in theory this discussion about trusting or not trusting omnitrezor is a bit pointless … either you trust the trezor or you shouldnt use it [no matter if you trust apps/computer/keyboards] … and the omniwallet app should for sure be looked at …but is just a vehicle to enable you tu use your trusted device … just a GUI
