This is a bit of a tangent to my usual posts on crypto-asset analysis. But since any investor in this space will need a good solution for storing your tokens, I thought I’d make mention of Exodus Wallet.
Currently there’s only two user friendly multi-token wallets available, Jaxx and Exodus. Of the two, Exodus appeals most to me due to its design and usability. It’s in fast development and the most common question from the community is what tokens and features will be supported in the roadmap?
I did some research on their Slack channel this morning and here is my best definitive list below which I’ll keep updated for a while until Exodus have their own FAQ that supersedes this one. This article will continue to be updated through direct conversation with the Exodus team.
Assets must qualify
All tokens must:
- be in the top 20 market cap as quoted by Coincap.io
- be supported by Shapeshift (a measure to reduce user confusion inside Exodus’ exchange functionality)
|Asset or Feature||Roadmap Status||Details|
|Ethereum||Supported||Ethereum ERC20 tokens coming 2017|
|Dash||Supported||Excludes InstantX and PrivateSend features.|
|Factom||Mar 2017||Factom support entered private beta as of 10th Feb 2017, aiming for 31 March 2017 public release.|
|Monero||2017||Monero remains on the Exodus roadmap and we are excited to include this asset. Unfortunately, the UI/UX of Monero remains difficult and is still not ideal. Today novice users continue have difficulty with transaction notifications from the current beta GUI wallet from the Monero core team. Because Exodus does personal one-on-one support for each Exodus user we feel including Monero too early would cause a massive support burdon and confuse casual digital asset enthusiasts. Good news is we are getting closer and we do expect Monero to be included in 2017. Although pros and technical users may like bleeding edge technology, until Monero is rock solid, tested and “dog-fooded” internally Exodus will not release Monero until it is ready for “normal” (non-technical) digital asset consumers.
Exodus posted an update on Reddit regarding the history and details on XMR integration (Jan 31, 2017).
|ERC20 SUPPORT||2017||Ethereum ERC20 asset support will enable assets such as Augur, Iconomi, and DigixDAO. Support is expected in 2017.|
|Augur||2017||Augur is an ERC20 token and planned as the first Ethereum asset inside Exodus.|
|ICONOMI||2017||Iconomi is an ERC20 token and expected to be released in 2017|
|DigixDAO||2017||DigixDAO is an ERC20 token and expected to be released in 2017|
|Omni||2017||Likely in 2017. Omni, Maid, Tether all fall in the same body of work for Exodus|
|OMNI TOKEN SUPPORT||2017||Omni token support will enable tokens such as Maid and Tether. Support is planned for 2017.|
|Maidsafe||2017||Maid is an Omni token and expected to be released in 2017.|
|Tether||2017||Tether is an Omni token and expected to be released in 2017. We are most excited about Tether because of the ability to have a stable peg inside of the Exodus environment.|
|HARDWARE WALLET SUPPORT||Planned||The Exodus team is very keen to add hardware wallet support (e.g. Trezor, KeepKey, Ledger Nano).
I can also tell you that personally JP and I both want hardware wallet support ASAP… We also have heard from a number of high-net worth investors this is the ideal platform with the added hardware auth.
|Ethereum Classic||Under Evaluation||Exodus are undecided on Ethereum Classsic support.|
|Zcash||Under Evaluation||If the Zcash network remains stable and has continual upgrades it is likely we will support this asset in 2017.|
|Siacoin||Under Evaluation||Exodus is intrigued with Sia but have not looked the tech to see what the options are.|
|SingularDTV||Under Evaluation||SingularDTV is an ERC20 token, Exodus will support ERC20 in 2017, but SignularDTV would need to be supported by ShapeShift first.|
|Counterparty||Not on roadmap|
|Storj||Not on roadmap||Storj is a Counterparty asset. Counterparty assets are not currently on roadmap, but Exodus and Storj founders will be chatting at the Satoshi Roundtable. If Storj has community support and the Storj team helps, integration will be more attractive.|
|Lisk||Not on roadmap|
|NEM||Not on roadmap|
|Steem||Not on roadmap|
|Waves||Not on roadmap|
|GameCredits||Not on roadmap|
|NXT||Not on roadmap|
|Synereo||Not on roadmap|
