Hi, I have recently bought my first few investments in bern from an exchange. I tried downloading the bern wallet from github but I have a chromebook and google does not support the file for the wallet. Will you be creating an android wallet or do you have another way for me to safely store my bern cash as I don't trust the exchange wallets anymore.
Hi Barry, thanks for investing in BERN. I assure you that I am working hard to ensure it was a wise investment.
An andriod wallet is not yet available. I am working on a new wallet, perhaps when the source code is ready I can build an android wallet or hire an android developer to assist me.
At present, wallets are only available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The recent closure of coinwallet.io has left a gap for android and other web enabled devices.
The files you downloaded from github would be the source code, not compiled and executable code.
Yes, I do very much agree with your stance on holding your BERN at an exchange. That is risky, as I am sure you are aware. Not only are you exposed to more risk with your BERN at an exchange, you will not be able to stake (aka mint) and collect the 10% APR from Proof of Stake.
Sorry to say at present, there is no solution for your android device. Coinwallet.io was our temporary android solution until an adroid wallet could be built but, they had the same risks of an exchange that concerns you. Once the new code is ready and the new wallets are built and made available for Mac and Windows, I can focus my time on an android wallet. I can't give an honest ETA at this time, but will update the community as I progress.
As of now, you would need to run a wallet on a Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux machine to remove your BERN from an exchange. I apologize for not having a better answer for you. An android wallet is high on my priority list.
Again, thank you for investing in BERN.
