Request to Support ETHW for limited time

I’d very much like to dump ETHW, however my ETHW holding are in a SAFE on ETHW.

I propose making ETHW supported through the end of the year. To turn on ETHW, users should have to click through some warnings, or go to a specific URL.

I know it should be possible to use the CLI with on-chain confirmations, however I have no experience with that, and there is no support for hardware wallets.

BTW, I’d rather my ETHW be stranded than give legitimacy to that chain.

PoW boils the oceans. I’m extremely happy to no longer have to deal with that.

It’s likely not worth the time investment from the team to build this backend + UI feature that will only be supported for a limited time window compared to spending time and energy on longer term development of features that have been prioritized.

I too would like to sell off the $ETHW associated to ETH held on Safes. It would be fun to play around with the CLI to figure this out and publish a tutorial given the time.


I agree with you, it is reasonable to allow users to sell their ETHW in the short term, there is no need to operate safe interface on the ETHW chain for a long time.
But I don’t think it’s necessary for community voting/discussion (after safedao launch), which will lead to a lot of unnecessary processes.

I was able to easily use the CLI after changing my keys so I felt safe typing in the old mnemonic in the CLI. The hardest part was changing my mainnet keys.

On the latest Ubuntu LTS (22.04) I needed to do

sudo pip3 install -U safe-cli

instead of

pip3 install -U safe-cli

The CLI also said it was a different chain because chainID=10001 belong to some other chain. Someone (perhaps me) should just make a mirror post for noobs.

I stopped boiling the oceans!
