    Would it be feasible or even desirable to have some sort of micro fee as part of the wallet? Like % of every trade or something. Trying to think of alternative methods of making the wallet self sustainable instead of asking for continues donations or ads.

    It is not just a simple trust issue. Apps can be distributed in a "safe" manner (digital signatures, app stores, etc.).
    For example, take a look at Windows Credential Locker: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj554668(v=ws.11).aspx
    There are a plethora of other technologies which could be potentially useful: Windows Hello, biometrics (fingerprint + face recognition), etc.
    Then why people don't use it more?

    Asking with caps-lock about mining on XRPchat is like screaming for a condom in a monastery.

    A bit off-topic, a bit very on-topic, but I'd like an open-source, (community audited), (cold) wallet solution that handles basic payment orders for the majority of coins out there on their native blockchain/ledger.
    Currently -- and maybe forever -- having IOU's (either on RCL, or in the shape of ticker-credit on an exchange) requires trust in an (often) capitalistic entity. I'd like to store my coins in cold wallets on the ledger/blockchain native to that coin. However, I do not want to understand or need to understand how to install, trust and manage a wallet package for each and every of those blockchains/ledgers.
    I am thinking of creating a Tails live operating system with nothing more than one software package (the requested one stated above) and properly encrypted files with the secret key to my cold wallets, all of that on one or several USB drives. I would only need to use this when I would like to 'check-out' a particular coin, so I need to be able to send it to exactly one address (the one of the exchange or person). Just a nice small software package, that manages that on all major blockchains/ledgers...
    Can I have that for my birthday?

    What is the legal name of this legal entity and where is it registered? GateHub is not a different legal entity AFAIK.
    And I doubt they can create a separate legal entity out of the blue without informing the customers and maybe getting their consent (because the data controller changes).

    Hey, is it possible to allow to choose more than one option? I use Linux and Win10.

    I think you need Mac OS X in there?

    macOS not considered an operating system? or are you classifying that under Linux?

    xrp-wallet is an open-source desktop app with basic features, using native widgets via the wxWidgets library

    I think the main issues with existing wallets are:
    they're relatively unknown to the majority of people (there is no clear web page which would say e.g. "Ripple Wallet" + download button), safety and trust issues (how can I know if executable was tampered with?), no one has seriously reviewed the code of these wallets, their UI doesn't native and it looks "foreign" in a typical environment (windows) teams behind them are mostly one-man bands - bus factor 1 (Who will maintain these wallets? Will I be able to use it after one or two years? Will I be able to use my secret key after X years in it?) I don't think Exodus supports Ripple.

    This is just centralized storage solution with local encryption of content. If they go bust, your secret keys go bust. One could probably use a plethora of other more established services (Amazon S3, Azure, DropBox, etc.) and just encrypt the files that you want to store there.

    Malta is a member of the EU and has the EUR as currency. Doubt that they might have monetary plans on their own on whatever blockchain.

    For an hosted wallet, end user just needs to browse to the wallet website (but I think you talk about the origin of the code).
    I agree about the trust aspect, but for example Github Pages ( https://pages.github.com/ ) are hosted directly from GitHub repository, which everyone can inspect.

    Cryptographic hash functions produce hashes which are very close to being "completely random" (random oracle model is often used in mathematical analysis).

    Sure. The wallet could be just a wallet without any trading functionality.
    Any trading functionality could be hidden in a function that buys/sells XRPs or converts one currency to another.

    Wallet UI can solve most of the issues. UI testing could result in a UI that is very different from what are current Ripple users used to. For example, wallet could have a task oriented UI (which adds a lot of complexity).

    I'd be fine with this.  Just a cold storage wallet on my own computer that could store my XRP.  New users could download and send XRP back and forth just like so many other alt coin wallets!  This would support ease of adoption by new users that are switching from their other alt coins over to XRP!
