    Not specifically a Glacier question, but 2-of-4 is the default, or at least the example, in the protocol. Is there any good discussion published on how to best decide which m-of-n scheme to choose based on different user circumstances?

    IIRC Glacier recommends 2-of-5 if you are entrusting keys to other people. But generally no, I'm not aware of any such discussion.

    For anyone who might have private keys stored in bank safe deposit boxes as part of their Glacier Protocol, here's something to consider - I was granted access to my safe deposit box yesterday while wearing a medical mask. I was never asked to remove the mask so that they could verify my identity. Granted, I did still have to show my ID and had to have the key to my box, but it was still a bit shocking. Any person with similar physical characteristics to me could have pulled this off if they had my ID and safe key. This helped me understand that bank safe deposit boxes aren't as secure as I once believed them to be.

    I have tested GlacierScript with Bitcoin Core v0.20.0rc2 (upcoming release). No changes needed. (Although, thanks to bug #38, Glacier is broken anyway, and nobody seems to care.)

    I failed to withdraw a recent utxo from a 0.91beta glacier address. Is there a known compatibility issue? Older utxos work fine.

    KeyError: ‘addresses‘ when entering the raw transaction of said utxo.

    The output that’s not working was generated by a wasabi wallet.

    The transaction has a segwit output. I think Bitcoin Core 0.14 can’t handle this, right?

    Guess I have to go through updating to the latest Bitcoin Core. Thanks for this https://gist.github.com/bitcoinhodler/8be823fae7b46e924caa594abdde3bd0 @bitcoinhodler you contribution is very much appreciated.

    @bitcoinhodler I second the appreciation for your contributions. If you are accepting btc donations I’d be happy to send one for the help you provided me and others. I would encourage others to do the same. We need to keep this project going and up to date

    @bitcoinhodler
    I believe you encountered GlacierProtocol/GlacierProtocol#14
    bitcoinhodler
    @bitcoinhodler
    No donations needed, but I appreciate the gesture. What this project needs is a public maintainer with a reputation to uphold. And more coders to review pull requests.
    634-5789
    @634-5789
    Wasn't Jameson Lopp involved lately? He'd meet the requirements for a public maintainer.
    And thanks for pointing out issue #14, must be this. I'll test it later this week.

    @bitcoinhodler
    Lopp was involved for a few minutes but hasn't been seen in months.
    I've added a warning to my gist to be careful and do your own research. Don't blindly trust those instructions. They have not been reviewed by the wider Glacier community (if there is such a thing) and if I wanted to be malicious I could direct you to download a hacked Bitcoin Core that sends all your coins to me.

    Can glacier wallet send to a bech32 address?
    634-5789
    @634-5789
    @hellosa-sa Not with its current release because this still uses Bitcoin Core 0.13.x. If you update the app USB following @bitcoinhodler‘s gist you‘ll be able to send to bech32 addresses. I tested this. https://gist.github.com/bitcoinhodler/8be823fae7b46e924caa594abdde3bd0

    @hellosa-sa
    @634-5789 thanks for this info. I followed these steps to install 0.19.0.1 on my initial setup of glacier, so i should be good. did you send a succesful tx from glacier to bech32 address after upgrading to Bitcoin 0.19.0.1?
    634-5789
    @634-5789
    Yes, I did.

    I've tested Glacier with the upcoming Bitcoin Core 0.21 release. We require changes to be compatible. I opened a new PR: GlacierProtocol/GlacierProtocol#80
    This only affects creating new App USBs. If you already have App USBs, or if you use my gist (which installs Bitcoin Core v0.19.0.1) to create new App USBs, this does not affect you, and I know of no advantage to upgrading.
    634-5789
    @634-5789
    Thanks for keeping us updated. I tested your gist recently against 0.20.1 and can confirm that it works if this is of anyone's interest.

    Is it possible to easily check the balance of a glacier address without using a public block explorer? Can I check the balance using my full node? If yes, is there a reference link showing how to do this anyone could share?
    634-5789
    @634-5789

    You totally can with Bitcoin Core:

    bitcoin-cli scantxoutset start '["addr(GLACIER_ADDRESS)"]'

    Thank you! This was exactly what I needed to know.

    My glacier-psbt repo https://github.com/bitcoinhodler/glacier-psbt explains how to import a Glacier address into Bitcoin Core as a watch-only wallet. (It assumes you're comfortable with bitcoin-cli.)
