Hey @wowario, thanks for posting the latest feature summary and releases to the Wowlet wallet.
I’m really enjoying using the wallet. It’s so easy to use and I love how the latest forum posts and memes are available right within the wallet. This makes this wallet fun and a pleasure to use. Please pass on the feedback to the other devs.
Speaking of Wowlet devs, I have an idea that I’d was hoping you might be able to run by the team (only if you think it’s worthy). Please note: I’m not a coder and hence I’m not even sure is the blockchain can even support this idea.
Here is my idea…
One of the founding principles of Wownero is privacy. Wouldn’t it be nice if built-in to the base layer was an option to send an encrypted text message (or meta-data) with each transaction?
Let me provide an real world example…
Let’s say I want to send a community member a donation in $WOW. Wouldn’t it be nice if I could attach to the donation a short encrypted message that could only be read by the recipient in their Wowlet wallet. The message could have a character limit - like Twitter had when it launched with a 140 chr limit, thus deterring people from attaching the dictionary to a transaction (haha).
This message would be encrypted on the blockchain and visible in the recipients Wowlet wallet once the transaction is in the process of being confirmed.
How this could be funded
This feature would be “opt-in” via a check box. Once the Wowlet user checks this box, a text box would appear allowing the user to enter text. As the user types in there message there would be a character countdown and also a small fee would be charged per character (the longer the message the higher the fee).
This fee would cover the cost of transmitting more data with a transaction and the fee would be split 2 ways:
a) 50% goes to the miner
b) 50% would be deposited in to the Wowlet Developer Fund (to re-coup the cost to developing this feature)
