Transferring wallet address labels from different wallets is non-trivial today, as there is no standard for this metadata it seems.

  • Could address labelling be included in wallet config files at export?
  • Could wallet descriptors help in the future?
  • Is there any best practices today or wallet recommended for this?

The goal is to keep a clean and updated state of wallet addresses labeling for easy coin control and good privacy, while not being locked in with a wallet that does not let a user export their labels. Thanks a bunch!

    Use a money for transacting and a spreadsheet for accounting.

    There was talk of a BIP for a Wallet Labels Export Format on the Bitcoin Dev mailing list in August last year: lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2022-August/… which might be of interest in this context.
