Secure Graphene Cross-Chain Key Store Extension

Image from store WhaleVault
Description from store WhaleVault is a better, safer cross-chain way to access all your graphene accounts from Chrome-based browsers (including Brave Desktop, Opera Desktop, Yandex Mobile Android, and Kiwi Mobile Android), and Firefox as well. Most well-known graphene blockchains are supported out-of-the-box, including all Steem/Hive, BitShares, and EOS-based chains. WhaleVault is also the "key vault of choice" for ShareBits. The extension injects the WhaleVault API into each website's javascript context, so that any website that you authorize can safely and securely request a signature or encrypt/decrypt a memo without ever having direct access to any of your private keys. Because it adds functionality to the normal browser context, WhaleVault requires permission to read and write any web page that wishes to access the extension. You can always "view source" of WhaleVault the way you would any Chrome extension, or from the official GitHub repo: https://github.com/alexpmorris/whalevault WhaleVault also offers a news/alerts feed with domain warnings for alerting users to related crypto site hacks, scams, and other potential phishing attempts. As an additional precaution, you should only allow "site access" to the WhaleVault extension in Chrome for those trusted websites that require it. For those not using Keychain, WhaleVault will also act as a polyfill for Steem Keychain, Hive Keychain, and Blurt Keychain for seamlessly and securely transacting with any app or wallet that supports them. That includes Hive-Engine / TRIBALDEX support, all from a single extension! WhaleVault is a multi-chain fork by @alexpmorris of the Steem Keychain browser extension. Steem Keychain (repo at https://github.com/MattyIce/steem-keychain) was originally created by @yabapmatt, developed by @stoodkev, and funded by @aggroed. Many thanks to them for creating a great template upon which to build WhaleVault!

  • (2020-11-28) Martin Krischik: WhaleVault is just what I'm looking for. One Vault to rule them all. If only it wasn't so buggy. First WhaleVault has problem with entering the master password reporting a “Wrong password!” even when the correct password was entered. I have a password manager — The password entered was correct. Having to delete and recreate the vault all the time is no fun. Next posting comments on PeakD and SteemPeak isn't working. As well as cancel order on Hive-Engine.
  • (2020-02-21) Chris Bird: This works perfectly for the three chains that I am on and I'm sure it's the same for any others. It even helped me get my keys back once without having to reset them.
  • (2019-05-22) ChuckyFucky: Amazing cross-platform keychain. Great for those who have hazzles with multiple blockchain keys!
  • (2019-05-22) Power Pics: WhaleVault is an amazing full-feature cryptocurrency key manager that makes securing all your graphene-based accounts/wallets (Whaleshares.io, EOS, Telos, Bitshares, Smoke.io, etc) super easy. You can sign cross-chain transactions, send tokens, and more all from one extension. Nicely Done!
  • (2019-05-21) Deranged Visions: Amazing extension for securing multiple sets of keys for cross chain use.
  • (2019-05-03) Adam Abdullah: good
