Proposal for an Insurable Crypto Wallet (ICW)

We propose a multisig wallet which is reliable enough to store values larger than USD 1M and is insurable at the same time.

Design principles

  • Minimal functionality
  • Minimum use of language constructs
  • No modifiable configuration
  • Auditable configuration
  • Minimum state

A detailed specification can be found in specification.md

Thanks to Christian Lundkvist, who provided the underlying idea, and Vitalik Buterin who implemented it in Viper
