Trezor, a bulletproof bitcoin wallet, has finalized its stance to append new integration for Cashaddr. Previously, the company seemed to be completely hateful towards Cashaddr that distinguishes between bitcoin core and bitcoin cash. And now, it has decided to issue its integration.
Trezor to Integrate Cashaddr for Bitcoin Cash.
The bitcoin cash advocate, Mr Jason Elliott, started tweeting to Trezor regarding the time of delivery for the expected integration of Cashaddr. The Bach N. of Trezor commented in this thread and this confirmed the progress of the integration. The Github link acted as a confirmation about the speculated modifications of Cashaddr.
Mr. Hoenicke stated, “This needs to be done outside the firmware for cashaddr support… Webwallet: compute cashaddr addresses from xpub. Note that only the last step from hashed public key to address needs to be changed. The webwallet checks that the address the Trezor returns is as expected. This check should also allow 1.. addresses so that it works with older firmware (so we don’t have to deploy both at the same time); allow cashaddr as send to address. The firmware supports both and both use SPENDADDRESS. The only difference is the confirmation message given to the user; the transaction format did not change at all”.
If all that has been stated turns to be true, it is going to be a surprising set of events. Last year, Mr. Rusnak expressed his concern through Github, “I suggest to change the address version to something different, so it is obvious the address is a Bitcoin Cash address. (It can start with C for example). Don’t forget to change also address version for P2SH!” Even though this advice was not followed at the very beginning, it now seems to be a fateful advice.
This leaves the doors open for further progress and with regards to the recent Github events, the BTC users seems to have proper reasons to be hopeful about the coin’s final outcome.
