Is Tally Ho The MetaMask Killer?
The last and only time I entered one of the famed @Publish0x Writing Competitions, was way back in June 2020.
The post was fun to write, as at the time Atomic Wallet was being actively promoted by Publish0x and I was bi-curious. And there was the generous referral bonus where we both got $5 worth of AWC. So not only did I get 80 AWC from the writing competition but also got an extra $15 worth of AWC referral commission.
That little love affair did not last very long.
But as you can see writing and reading about wallets is a popular subject.
While I may not enter the Writing Competitions regularly, I do like the Twitter Giveaways that go with it. And of course one needs to read the @igort post to check the rules of engagement. Very important if you want to qualify for the Twitter Giveaway.
It was while reading the competition rules in bed last night, that I ended up falling down the Rabbit Hole again. I ended up clicking on the link to the Tally Ho! site and scrolling through their blog.
Disclaimer - I really don't like using MetaMask, so the bi-curious juices started flowing when I saw this.

copying 6 year old code would have been an easy option
Tally Ho was built from the bottom up
MetaMask ceased to be open source in August 2020 and began using their "tiered proprietary license”
Tally Ho uses the GPLv3 license and will remain open-source. Any forks of Tally Ho code must also be open-source.
Disclaimer - My biggest bug bear with MetaMask is trying to get it to sync with the Ledger Nano.

MetaMask uses WebHID = connectivity issues
Tally Ho uses WebUSB to talk to your Ledger Nano
Chrome and Brave support was live then, with Firefox added since blog was published

Starts off by giving a brief introduction to vampire attacks. Then delves into decentralization.....
MetaMask -JPMorgan, Consensys and Mastercard? Who owns what? Who's pockets does the 100k+ in daily fees line?
Tally Ho - 100% open-source, community owned and available to every one
This is where the vampire attack becomes relevant with Tally Ho planning their own vampire attack. And I smell an airdrop in the making here folks.
Then it was time to shut my tired eyes and go to sleep.
Then I woke up and it was raining. A perfect day for spending inside.
Following on from where I left off last night was the idea of the airdrop. One more blog post to check.
Disclaimer - we missed out on the Ampleforth governance airdrop, because we just left the Publish0x AMPL on the platform.

This is a common buzzword in crypto, more cringe.
This post is not a substitute for research, it is only a travel blog of my journey down the rabbit hole.
I like what I have read so far about Tally Ho and I do not like MetaMask. So this is only just the beginning of our journey. There may even be a follow-up post further down the path. Fingers crossed there is a big fat airdrop at the bottom of the rabbit hole.
