Hive Keychain DHF - Week 1 : Ledger, Doc and App


As promised in our proposal, we will post weekly updates to let you know what's going on regarding Keychain development.
The DHF start on May 15th and we only managed to be funded for 2 days before dropping under the Return proposal.

If you wish to see the development going full speed, support us via the links to the proposal at the bottom this post.


Up until now, the Hive Keychain extension documentation suffered from the rapid development pace. It was incomplete and rather hard to understand for new developers wishing to build dApps on Hive with Keychain integration.

I took a pause in the development of new features to automate the documentation use documentation.js. Now the documentation is automatically generated, making sure it will always stay up to date.

Check it out here.

Mobile App

After discussing UI/UX matters with the team, I've started scaffolding the mobile App. It will be a React Native (vanilla) App, which sate will be handled via Redux.

Once done, I will start working on the onboarding and user management screens. Users will be able to import their keys from the extension directly from a QR code.

@nateaguila is working on the UI/UX, you can bet we will have a great looking App.

As for everything we do, the App will be opensource.The first commits will be available here in the coming week, assuming that we get the funds to keep working on it.


Our number one priority is to keep your keys safe. For this, we will make it possible to sign operations requiring the active authority from Ledger.

@quochuy is putting a lot of work on a Ledger library for Hive, and will also work on the Keychain-Ledger integration. We will fund the latter and hope that you will enjoy this new feature.
