MWC-QT-Wallet demo

A few hours ago, we released a video demoing our MWC-QT-Wallet. The video can be seen below.

This video demonstrates installing the MWC-QT-Wallet, verifying the recovery seed, and recovering from the recovery seed. This wallet is still under development, but the point is that you can see our progress and the look and feel of the wallet. We think this wallet will be very easy for people to use and will include the functions needed to claim MWC from the airdrop, participate in the HODL program, and everything else that's generally associated with a cryptocurrency wallet. We think it looks better, and is MUCH easier to use than any currently available grin wallet. It is not a web wallet, so users will have to download and run it, but as you can see that is very easy to do.

The wallet will be available on Windows, Linux, and MacOSX. Security is very important to us, we don't want anyone to lose any money, so we have implemented the mandatory confirmation of the passphrase to ensure everything is written down correctly, as seen in the video. In the video, to save time, I copy and paste the recovery phrase into a text file, but in the real world, this should never be done obviously. As the instructions on the wallet say, the recovery phrase should be written down on paper.

There are a lot of directions we could go after releasing the initial version of this wallet. Some things that we will plan on implementing: multi-sig, atomic swaps with BTC, improved invoicing, mobile, hardware wallet integrations, and even lightning network, just to name a few. But it is an active area we hope to contribute to.
