I agree for single sig wallets. But most Gordian apps use descriptor wallets for only one of the keys in a multisig. This means no single point-of-failure using bitcoin-core, but we can leverage core for watching, transaction creation, bug fixes and new features like taproot.

musign-cli is from @BlockchainCmns, but it does not support musig 2 (or FROST) quite yet, and definitely should be considered early alpha. We are waiting on https://github.com/ElementsProject/secp256k1-zkp/pull/131

It’s a very important project for us, especially given taproot signaling. We also want to add additional functionality like sign-to-contract, adapter sigs, discreet log contracted, bip-322 signing, etc. to this tool. I hope you’ve checked out seedtool-cli & keytool-cli.

With all of the news lately of interest in #Bitcoin by Spanish & Portuguese language countries, there has an upswelling of interest for translations of our Learning Bitcoin From the Command Line course.

We also have a private Signal group for translators — send me a DM if you’d like to be added.

The Spanish translation will be started in the “spanish-translation” branch of our repo. Make separate PRs for each chapter. https://github.com/BlockchainCommons/Learning-Bitcoin-from-the-Command-Line/tree/spanish-translation

Other language branches will be added once we have at least two serious volunteers per language. In addition to Spanish there is a smaller team doing Portuguese https://github.com/BlockchainCommons/Learning-Bitcoin-from-the-Command-Line/tree/portuguese-translation

Did you know that the state of California recently released digital COVID-19 vaccination records using QR codes? [1/10] https://cdt.ca.gov/news/california-launches-new-digital-tool-giving-residents-convenient-access-to-their-covid-19-vaccine-record/

Thu Jun 24 13:53:09 +0000 2021

The full answer is more complex than that. California is suggesting that you save your vaccine QRs to your camera roll, which isn’t entirely insecure, but which also has usability problems because photos can be shared way too easily & hard to find the correct QR you need. [3/10]

Thu Jun 24 13:53:10 +0000 2021

But, is it safe? As the saying goes: we’ve got an app for that. The Gordian QR Tool from @BlockchainComns! [2/10] https://www.blockchaincommons.com/projects/Releasing-QRTool/

Thu Jun 24 13:53:10 +0000 2021

The security of Gordian QR Tool extends to ensuring that your QR codes haven’t been changed. It uses LifeHash to create unique, but evocative full-color graphics of each QR, allowing you to recognize them at a glance. [6/10] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu0K__KLxKo&t

Thu Jun 24 13:53:11 +0000 2021

It’s also good for a lot of other kinds of QRs, such as travel passes, crypto-seeds, crypto-keys, and 2FA-seeds. (Ever had to reset all of your 2FAs after you lost a phone? It’s a pain. QR Tool would allow you to restore directly from saved 2FA QRs) [5/10]

Thu Jun 24 13:53:11 +0000 2021

So we’ve created Gordian QR Tool, an iPhone & Mac app built as a secure vault for QR codes. It leverages your iPhone’s secure enclave, two-factor authentication, and biometrics to ensure that no one but you can access this personal information. [4/10] https://apps.apple.com/us/app/gordian-qr-tool/id1506851070

Thu Jun 24 13:53:11 +0000 2021

Overall, the QR Tool is an example of the core principles of Blockchain Commons’ Gordian architecture: focused on independence, privacy, resilience, and openness. [8/10] https://github.com/BlockchainCommons/Gordian#gordian-principles

Thu Jun 24 13:53:12 +0000 2021

Finally, Gordian QR Tool address some problems of usability by automatically categorizing many known kinds of QRs, and allows you to categorize the rest. It supports sorting your QRs by a variety of means. You can find the specific QR you need in seconds. [7/10]

Thu Jun 24 13:53:12 +0000 2021

This is one of many projects at Blockchain Commons, meant to demonstrate new ways to store and use keys and other critical information (such as QRs!). You can support our work by becoming a patron. [10/10] https://github.com/sponsors/BlockchainCommons

Thu Jun 24 13:53:13 +0000 2021

Though the Gordian QR Tool is available through the Apple App Store, as it is open source, if you prefer you can compile yourself directly from the source code. [9/10] https://github.com/BlockchainCommons/GordianQRTool-iOS

Rust wasn’t on their initial list of languages used for AI training. So if it functions at all the output would be way off. But they do apparently support Go in the initial rollout.
