Title: [ANN][FLO] Florin | 0.10 Upgrade | The original tx msg coin | Project Alexandria
Post by: skyangel on June 17, 2013, 08:35:54 PM

Florincoin is a scrypt based coin with quick transaction processing.
Florincoin also introduces a useful new feature - transaction comments.

Features

* 40 second block generation allows for fast confirmations, but not too fast to cause problems with network synchronisation.
* No pre-mine, super-blocks or zero-blocks at the start.
* Quick difficulty adjustment should limit insta-mining in the first hours after launch.
* A transaction comment can be added to any coin transaction. This can be used to attach a simple message or reference to a transaction, or for any other purpose decided by the coin receiver and sender. Transaction comments are currently limited to 140 528 characters. Both the GUI and RPC interface have been extended to implement this feature.
* The transaction comment can be seen under the "Transactions" tab when you double click on a a transaction ("Transaction information"). Also available from the terminal by doing "listtransactions".
* Note that transaction comments are stored in the block-chain and are therefore public. If you want to send private information in your transaction comment you should encrypt the message using a method agreed upon by the sender and receiver.
* Transaction comments have minimal impact on the size of the block chain due to their small size (relative to the size of a block in the chain) and the fact that they do not take up any extra space when not used in a transaction. Transaction costs (calculated on transaction size) also offset the impact of slightly larger transactions when a comment is included.

Specifications

Block target spacing: 40 seconds
Difficulty retargets every blocks
Block reward: 100 FLO, halving every 800,000 blocks (about 1 year)
Maximum coins: 160 million FLO
Network port: 7312
RPC port: 7313

Yup, mining a few blocks too, just to test out if I can fill the blockchain with messages ;D
I'll start with the Bible, split up in 140 character blocks.

This coin is going nowhere soon, unless Skyangel has implemented something against spamming :)

Excellent choice on the number of characters 140... same as twitter!

Lots of potential uses.

I may just consider adding this feature to ZenithCoin.

I've added a new p2pool.

Here are the parameters:

cgminer --scrypt -o next.afraid.org:8132 -u yourFLOaddress/0.0140 -p . --queue 0 -s 1

statistics available here: http://next.afraid.org:8132. This pool uses a PPLNS payout scheme, and is stratum enabled. The PPLNS window is set to only one hour.

/0.0140 set a minimal share difficulty, and lower useless network traffic.

3% fee at this time. (it may be set to a lower value in the future)

----
This one is up, and fully reliable.

This is quite a nice innovation, but how do you plan on keeping the blockchain size small?

Also, no pre-announce sets off some red flags. Good luck.

The message takes almost no space if not included.

At it's largest, it is relatively small, maybe the size of a couple of inputs in the transaction. So I don't see a big increase in block size.

Also, the message size adds to the transacton size, so a transaction with a larger message is likely to incur more transaction fees. That should deter misue to some extent.

Would really like to have seen this released with more... Needs an official website, Mac OSX client, what's the point of the coin? I still don't see much value in it.

I foresee a lot of immature additions to the block chain.... and maybe opened a door to some H4x..

Fun coin. I think it will hit the markets and dibble down to a steady spittle.

interesting.

i need a coin with no specific value to be merge mined (into worthlessness!) with bitcoin to keep it alive and humming for utilitarian purpose, namely messaging.

this might or might not be it. i want the valuation ofthe messages to drive the value of the coin at worst, at best, i want it piggybacking bitcoin so it has a very nominal cost to maintain a rigorous service level for everyone.

think with me, peeps.

While Florence was but a small North Italian Republic, the bankers of the region were so rich, that their coin, the Florin, was the standard form of payment throughout all of renaissance Europe. In other words: What the U.S. Dollar was in the latter half of the 20th century, the Florin was in the renaissance: A universal currency.

BTC is 21st century Florin!!! :D

Good luck!

When does cryptsy add this coin ?  ::) ::)

So you can dump 20,000 FLO's at 0.000006 BTC or less, because of a lack of volume?

An exchange is never first priority. Need places to spend a coin first.

It would be just another coin at Cryptsy. And the "innovation" will be copy-pasted to other coins soon, so nothing that distinguishes it from one of the other 35 coins @ Cryptsy.

I spent all my mined FLO coins on spamming the blockchain :P Hope there will be a block explorer soon, so I can read back the messages :P

Hashrate and difficulty will drop soon, coin will die, just like the others.

No.

A block explorer should make for interesting reading if it includes the transaction messages.

I think standard block explorer software should work with FLO with little effort. It won't display the messages though. For transactions without messages, the standard version 1 transaction blocks are used. For transactions with a message, version 2 transaction blocks are created. The block explorer will have to be modified to understand those version 2 blocks.

If someone feels like attempting this, I'll throw in a 200 FLO bounty (I know, it's not a lot).

Lol, the block chain is only a megabyte or so at the moment.

In all seriousness, I don't think the messages will have a big impact on the block chain size. A much bigger factor in block chain size is the number of transactions.

"Transaction comments are currently limited to 140 characters. "

Definitely more innovative than FTC or CHN.  Congratulations!

Excellent choice on the number of characters 140... same as twitter!

Lots of potential uses.

I may just consider adding this feature to ZenithCoin.
There was already another project (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=220530.0) with this idea, nothing innovative.

It is about how easily normal user can extract illegal material from blockchain. If it takes "an arm and a leg" to do it than almost anything and
everything holding a lot of data can have links to illegal material or whatnot, especially if custom and non-public crypt / decrypt stuff is used.
With FLO, all it takes to extract message data is normal, official wallet. Try not to think of FLO as altcoin client with messaging but messaging
client with altcoin built-in, where all users of such client store and distribute messages and some other data (altcoin stuff).

When it comes to distributing illegal material, using Bitcoin or some other cryptocoin client is risky but using FLO is as risky as the deal can be.

so... you know people, shouldn't demand for this be through the roof? unless you live in one of the police states....

The transaction format was modified, while trying to keep it backwards compatible.

If a transaction does not have a comment, it is the "normal" version 1 transaction structure. If it does have a comment, a new version 2 transaction structure is used, which is the same as the version 1 structure, except for a variable length comment at the end.

The 140 character limit is arbitrary and can be changed in future without changing the transaction structure.

Is there a reason I shouldn't just trap for that? It seems to be the end of the hex data each time. Along with the tx version it should make things simple.

Thanks I'm glad you like it, I've had mixed responses to the theme.  I still need to make some of those nav items images I think.

If there's any feedback I can make adjustments right now it sets drawing time for approximately 6 hours.

Also note that only those transactions that have "Tx version" = 2 have a message at the end.

ok thanks a lot, that should help.  It looks like if I send it all through a hex to ascii conversion i get a bunch of gibberish then "Text: and the cleartext message.

Is there a reason I shouldn't just trap for that? It seems to be the end of the hex data each time. Along with the tx version it should make things simple.

The "text:" part is not guaranteed to always be there. It is only there if you send through the GUI. The best would be to parse the whole message like under the "Raw Transaction Detail" part on the web-site, but I don't know how easy it will be.

A quick way might be to do like you suggested and only look for "text:" messages. The length byte will always be before that, so you can validate that you are in the right spot. Since messages are currently a maximum of 140 characters, the three bytes before the length byte should be 0. Also remember that the message could contain anything, so if you display it on a web site there might be HTML in the message. You should "clean up" the message before displaying on a web site.

This is going to be a stab in the dark..

those things you're saying, I know what they mean but i have no idea how to sort out the bytes and etc...

I see already that v2 tx don't always have a text.

preg_split is probably the extent of my brain stretching today

EDIT and maybe some htmlspecialchars heh

ok you can find your messages there for now, I was able to find a few messages and it seems to work.


Thank you very much skyangel for the tips.

I'll be merging that with some other code and cleaning it up a little later.

There's no database so it's hard to browse for random transactions but if you have a TXid it's fine.

I've never released this code before so if you run into anything odd feel free to drop me a PM thanks.

I'm working with MobGod to get some lottos up at http://lotto.coinworld.us/ since I wanted to check out this messaging FLO is one of the first coins added. It will have a coin and a link on the front page within the next hour or so.

Compared to 6coin and 8coin this is pretty damn innovative on my chart.  

It would be nice to have the old bitcoin message (comment) stubs either removed, or activated for this feature.  Did you save time by implementing it in parallel or do you have other ideas for expansion?

That's almost exactly what I used to make the conversion.  Most of the data just coimes out as gibberish it's not useful ASCII values.

that and a preg_split will catch the messages, so far.

If anyone can see it not working please let me know :)

Very nice! Exciting to see this. I'll update the first post with a link.

The version 1 transactions was kept for compatibility sake. Most of the version 1 transactions in the block chain was generated by mining software/pools other than the wallet.

The client generates version 2 transactions. I don't plan on changing the format of version 2 packets. I added the "text:" part in the beginning of the comment so that people could adopt the convention for their own kind of transaction comments, for example "encrypted:HGKJHGYXBgjh5j" or "url:http://example.com" or "reference:12345" or whatever they choose.

For now it's a good add because it allows this sort of easy trapping of the message for folks that aren't comfortable fliflopping between bases and encodings.

The more people can work with it the more people will be attracted to it, for sure.  An update that returned it as a parameter of the RPC-JSON transaction data would make adoption easy. At the moment it's a bit of a (realtively easy) trick.

1. grab TX hex
2. Convert to ASCII using common tutorial funciton or native language function
3. use regex to split the ASCII translation of the hex at "text:"
4. second half of the split is the text message. (if one exists)

A check for transaction version may improve overall software efficiency but isn't necessary as a v2 transaciton may not have a message anyways.

Sound reliable enough, with your knowledge of how it actually works? 

Are there cases where it will catch "garbage" after the message in the hex? 

If it's always the end the length bytes only matter when you're already making sense of the rest of the hex. If you don't parse the actual hex into transaction data locally (and very few will) they're essentially at a random location it seems to me.

Also not to seem awful but I'm totally up for bounties and tips ::)

It will always be at the end of the message with version 2 transactions.

Of course it would be safer to parse this field like all the other fields are parsed (checking length, etc), but I think it should be fine as you have it now.

Sent you a donation, thanks :)

Wait, that's just sinking in.  If I was to add a comment to a console or RPC transaction, would it be preceded by the "text:" string or is the QT gui doing that?

is there currently a way to send a message without including the "text:" in the transaction data?

Uh oh ;)

I'm not sure I'm ready to build an actual transaction parser for raw hex transactions in php. Until now the JSON return has been sufficient for what I've done.

And thank you for the donation as well.

The listtransactions RPC call returns the comment in the "tx-comment" field.

Also the send RPC calls also support an optional "tx-comment" parameter.

Yes, the GUI adds the "text" part in front. If you send using RPC calls, nothing is prefixed, you must add your own prefix.

So, for this to 'really' work in some sort of web service, a raw TX parser is required, then?

Bad idea, you could have 746578743a in the transaction inputs, in the signature, in the output amounts, or even in the hashes you send the money to.
Actually you could have this everywhere.

Taking the last 746578743a in the transaction would be better
Taking the first 746578743a after the last 00000000 would be even better
Actually parsing the transaction would be the only way to be sure

If it appears in a random position within the hex string, perhaps. But with only one hex string to go on there is really no easy way to test other eventualities.

Hmm no, nothing to do with the hex (assuming hex string means transaction comment for you). My post was rather clear: you could have that byte sequence in every other fields in your transaction.

OK seeing as the string length is stored in the hex how about this:
Code:
<?php

function get_florin_transaction_text($hexstring)
{
    
$output="[no text]";
    
$last_zeros_pos=strrpos($hexstring"00000000");

    if(
$last_zeros_pos)
    {
        
$mini_hexstring=substr($hexstring, ($last_zeros_pos+8));
        if(
hex2bin(substr($mini_hexstring210))=="text:")
        {
            
$character_count=hexdec(substr($mini_hexstring02));
            
$output=hex2bin(substr($mini_hexstring12, ($character_count*2)));
        }
    }
    return 
strip_tags($output);
}

$hexstring="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";

Hmm no, nothing to do with the hex (assuming hex string means transaction comment for you). My post was rather clear: you could have that byte sequence in every other fields in your transaction.

And yes, as far as I'm concerned the hex string to be passed to the function would come from the method getrawtransaction <txid> but I'm aware that this is not without it's problems because the sender could have sent multiple payments and this only takes into account one comment in that eventuality.

Without having a transaction where there are multiple payments, each with different comments I can't really improve the code & test for this kind of situation and I can't be bothered trying to hunt through the blockchain for a situation where this is the case. If someone wants to point me towards a transaction where this is the case I'll look into improving the function but for now it'll do the job assuming there's only one payment with a comment in the transaction.

In my opinion it should really be the responsibility of the decoderawtransaction <hex string> method to also provide the text as part of the returned array rather than relying on people to write their own parsers to get this information from the hex string manually.

This is true, the daemon should provide this string in raw text as it does basically every other part of the data with the exception of the scripted stuff. since you can tell getrawtransaction to decode it anyways, you have everything in one request.

That was the point of some of my conversation earlier, it sounds like the coin dev considers these conversions trivial, but a lot of us don't. I did spend some time at the wiki yesterday and it looks like it will be simple just tedious to write such a parser in php.

Considering the variability of transaction size and the chance of a few other zeros popping up elsewhere in the hex data , the thing to do is write a transaction parser if you want this to be reliable.  I'm already using sendmany with FLO and that means that the "text:" is not added for me if I choose to add a comment. Anyone else who uses this feature in a service may or may not choose to follow the coin dev's example with the "Text:" prefix.

What?

I don't think what you are talking about is feasible.

These comments are at the TX level, not actually associated with a specific output of the TX.

No matter how many payments you send it should only be one comment per TX.

I'd use something like this to get the text in php:
Code:
<?php

$text_output
=false;
$hex="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";

$decoded_text=hex2bin($hex);
$text_pos=strpos($decoded_text"text:");
if(
$text_pos)
{
    
$text_output=strip_tags(substr($decoded_text, ($text_pos+5)));
}

if(
$text_output)
{
    echo 
$text_output;
}
else
{
    echo 
"No text in transaction";
}

?>

Note: the hex2bin function requires php 5.4 or above.

Apples for your oranges?

Code:

function FLO_gettext ($hex)
{
$str = hex2str ($hex);

$datas = preg_split ("/(text:)/", $str);

if (isset ($datas[1]) && $datas[1] != "")
{
return htmlspecialchars ($datas[1]);
}

else
{
return "No Text Found";
}
}

function hex2str($hex)
{
for($i=0;$i<strlen($hex);$i+=2) $str .= chr(hexdec(substr($hex,$i,2)));
return $str;
}


Probably requires at least php3.something, only works for tx where the comment is led with "text:" identifier obviously.

EXCELLENT.

Does getrawtransaction call this function internally when you ask it to decode, or will we still have to hit the wallet twice to get it?

EXCELLENT.

Does getrawtransaction call this function internally when you ask it to decode, or will we still have to hit the wallet twice to get it?

Yes, you have to do two calls. I did it like this:

Code:

getrawtransaction de2824f54ccf5391bfc0c9b5a0a5e09214e4c045627a44c696bfb325f20c92ce

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

then

Code:
decoderawtransaction 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

ok, I don't know the internal daemon code, is it within scope to add it to getraw transaction so that If I input

Code:
getrawtransaction de2824f54ccf5391bfc0c9b5a0a5e09214e4c045627a44c696bfb325f20c92ce 1

It's included in the decoded output?

From "the outside" it looks like a cut and paste op. In the next hour I'll be recompiling your GIT.

If there's reasonable re-use in the daemon code it may be done already.  I haven't done any comparisons but it seems at a glance the decoded data returned by getrawtransaction is the same as the data returned by decoderawtransaction.

I'll cross my fingers if you didn't test that might be added as well :)

I think that might break too many other application that depend on getrawtransaction to only output the raw transaction.

Oh, no. Note the added "verbose" parameter at the end of the request.

getrawtransaction has always provided the decoded transaction data if you ask it to.

Just to be a dork:  http://lotto.coinworld.us/FLO/bc/gethelp.php The full help of the FLO daemon (page takes a moment to load all the detail directly from the daemon each time).

I'm not sure why decoderawtransaction exists I assumed it was legacy but bitcoin.it implies they were added at the same time (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Original_Bitcoin_client/API_Calls_list).

I suppose if you are building your own transactions it might be useful to segment your code.

I just finished the script i was working on about to recompile this and see if they're re-using the code internally already. You may have gotten a freebie on this one.

ok great and I AM being an idiot.

Getrawtransaction takes a TXid.

decoderawtransaction takes raw transaction hex not a TX id.

If you have the TXid you can skip the extra step of the decode request, but if you already have the hex might as well just decode it.

EDIT: pulled, compiled, testing in ubuntu very nice and thanks for your activity on this (and putting up with me)  ;D

Works good and it's certainly easier to manage an array than having to parse it yourself. The only thing required is to strip text: and probably any html if you don't want anyone doing anything malicious with it (although you can't really do much in 120 characters).

ok, the block explorer is live again, but it's using the "text:" trick to catch TX messages.

I'll move it over to the getrawtransaction method after we've had a chance to recompile the lotto daemon.

Hi, attempting to build Florin coin from source on Ubuntu 12.04 using these instructions:
https://github.com/pascalguru/florincoin/blob/master/doc/readme-qt.rst


Using "make" returns this error:
Code:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lminiupnpc

I've installed miniupnpc 1.8 successfully and it's in the /src folder. Is there another dependency I'm missing?


EDIT: found out the problem, lminiupnpc apparently is an alias (not sure of the technical definition) for libminiupnpc.so

The correct directory (apparently) is /usr/lib/ and under /usr/lib/ I had libminiupnpc.so.8 in that directory somehow, renamed it libminiupnpc.so and that worked.

Because encryption is not straightforward and the flo dev doesn't likely wan to/know how to do it.

I've decided not to strip the 'text:' added by the GUI as from the larger perspective, it's part of the message not the protocol.

I know the genesis block technically does not return anything from decoderawtransaction, however the second transaction from block 2 should technically return JSON data, right?

I have the following setting on the florincoin.conf:
Code:
txindex=1


EDIT: Working now, I think I had to wait for the blockchain to update after setting txindex=1. Is that true? New to this stuff, would like to learn and help out as much as possible ;)

Hi, attempting to build Florin coin from source on Ubuntu 12.04 using these instructions:
https://github.com/pascalguru/florincoin/blob/master/doc/readme-qt.rst


Using "make" returns this error:
Code:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lminiupnpc

I've installed miniupnpc 1.8 successfully and it's in the /src folder. Is there another dependency I'm missing?


EDIT: found out the problem, lminiupnpc apparently is an alias (not sure of the technical definition) for libminiupnpc.so

The correct directory (apparently) is /usr/lib/ and under /usr/lib/ I had libminiupnpc.so.8 in that directory somehow, renamed it libminiupnpc.so and that worked.
make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=

I'll add a small json output to the Block Crawler script in the next few hours.  It will give all the information in getinfo and also the network hash rate for those daemons who provide it.

If there is anything else you would like extracted let me know.

I don't think there's a daemon call for the block reward, but for Florin it's basically:

100 FLO  Block 0 to 799,999
50 FLO   Block 800,000 to 1,599,999
25 FLO   Block 1,600,000 to 2,399,999
etc.

It halves every 800K blocks.

OK the Florin Coin installation is updated with some simple feeds.

http://lotto.coinworld.us/FLO/bc/bc_json.php

The following output is available:

Plain Text:

    Network Hash Rate - use GET parameter "hashps"
    http://lotto.coinworld.us/FLO/bc/bc_json.php?hashps

    Block Height - use GET parameter "blocks"
    http://lotto.coinworld.us/FLO/bc/bc_json.php?blocks

    Difficulty - use GET parameter "difficulty"
    http://lotto.coinworld.us/FLO/bc/bc_json.php?difficulty

   Connection Count- use GET parameter "connections"
    http://lotto.coinworld.us/FLO/bc/bc_json.php?connections

JSON:

    Status (All Data) - use GET parameter "status"
    http://lotto.coinworld.us/FLO/bc/bc_json.php?status

Later I will be adding this to the Block Crawler repository on GitHub as well - it's a very simple extension of the script.

NOTE: the return of the STATUS request is untested with a daemon that doesn't support the getnetworkhashps method at this time. It should pass through the daemon error message "Method Not Supported" or some such.

Hi everyone,

I've been playing around with a block crawler myself and I have a few questions about the blockchain and Florincoin in general,

  • Does a transaction in a block being listed early in the tx list necessarily mean that transaction happened first? A follow up question: is it possible to somehow determine the order that transactions were added into the block? Even more specific, is it possible to determine the exact moment any transaction appeared on the network?
  • Are RPC calls computationally expensive? By this I mean, it seems to take a long time to store all of the data from the blockchain to the database. I haven't had time to run any benchmarks, but I am not sure if it's inserting to the database or reading the RPC calls that is causing the program to take a long time. If it is the RPC call indeed which slows the block crawler down, might it be beneficial to create a native block crawler built into florincoind (or perhaps a separate non-wallet daemon that is streamlined for blokchain parsing)?
  • Finally, a bit of an unrelated question, but relevant to blockchain size: is there a way to prevent an "attacker" from having acepted transactions every X amount of blocks? For instance, is it possible to create a transaction script that specifies that only one type of this transaction may be sent from any address to any other address every block? My idea is that to make use of the messaging system within Florincoin, certain addresses should be poised to receive transactions with certain messages, but to avoid spam they should ONLY accept a transaction type which is limited to a certain number of messages per X blocks.

Thanks for any and all input.

A follow up question: is it possible to somehow determine the order that transactions were added into the block?

No. The miner prioritises transactions according to fee and age and tries to include a number of free transactions, so the order in the block is not the order the transactions were transmitted on the network.

Are RPC calls computationally expensive? By this I mean, it seems to take a long time to store all of the data from the blockchain to the database. I haven't had time to run any benchmarks, but I am not sure if it's inserting to the database or reading the RPC calls that is causing the program to take a long time. If it is the RPC call indeed which slows the block crawler down, might it be beneficial to create a native block crawler built into florincoind (or perhaps a separate non-wallet daemon that is streamlined for blokchain parsing)?

I haven't tested, but I wouldn't think that the RPC calls are very expensive.

Finally, a bit of an unrelated question, but relevant to blockchain size: is there a way to prevent an "attacker" from having acepted transactions every X amount of blocks? For instance, is it possible to create a transaction script that specifies that only one type of this transaction may be sent from any address to any other address every block? My idea is that to make use of the messaging system within Florincoin, certain addresses should be poised to receive transactions with certain messages, but to avoid spam they should ONLY accept a transaction type which is limited to a certain number of messages per X blocks.

Not sure if I follow you, but an "attacking" miner can theoretically decide not to include certain transactions in their blocks depending on the contents of the transaction comment, but other miners running the standard Florin coin client will pick up those transactions.

Also see nLockTime. I've never seen it used, but a transaction can be scheduled to be included at a specific time in the future. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/NLockTime

A follow up question: is it possible to somehow determine the order that transactions were added into the block?

Block times are totally separate from TX times.  In fact right now a low-fee transaction can sit for hours on the bitcoin pool without any miner confirming it in, while hundreds of others are confirmed around it.

All of the transactions go into a pool on the network and then the individual wallets or miners pick and choose which ones will be used to make a particular block. You can use getrawmempool RPC command to get a lit of unconfirmed transactions that your wallet already knows about.

  • Are RPC calls computationally expensive? By this I mean, it seems to take a long time to store all of the data from the blockchain to the database. I haven't had time to run any benchmarks, but I am not sure if it's inserting to the database or reading the RPC calls that is causing the program to take a long time. If it is the RPC call indeed which slows the block crawler down, might it be beneficial to create a native block crawler built into florincoind (or perhaps a separate non-wallet daemon that is streamlined for blokchain parsing)?

Block Crawler specifically doesn't use a database.  I don't think RPC calls are expensive computationally but I suspect they are poorly implemented, or the internal database structure of the block chain is slow.

Technically, all of the functionality of the block crawler is in the daemon, even though most people don't realize it.

ABE and BBE create giant databases and calculate additional information to provide that "block chain explorer" feel.  The fact that Block Crawler does nothing to the data is why I call it a "block chain viewer" instead.

You could use the internals of Block Crawler to easily create a database loader and then build a new block explorer around that.  But everything is already there in the daemon.  Block crawler just makes it a little easier to navigate by handling a few interim steps (like getting the block hash for a block index) in the background.

It never translates a single byte of hex or other data into text (now that the tx-messages are in getrawtransaction ;))

  • Finally, a bit of an unrelated question, but relevant to blockchain size: is there a way to prevent an "attacker" from having acepted transactions every X amount of blocks? For instance, is it possible to create a transaction script that specifies that only one type of this transaction may be sent from any address to any other address every block? My idea is that to make use of the messaging system within Florincoin, certain addresses should be poised to receive transactions with certain messages, but to avoid spam they should ONLY accept a transaction type which is limited to a certain number of messages per X blocks.

You can do this with your own node.  You will be unable to affect what other nodes are doing, or how they select transactions to mine into blocks.

Sorry sort of a drive-by if I said anything confusing I'll try and clarify in a bit.

Sheer stupidity (and coding late) on my part.

The FLO version has some different code form the version in GIT and when I made the last security updates last night and moved the updated API file to FLO i neglected to fix the include path.

Which also means I forgot to test it, and the sample links in the release post have been bad all day too.

Looks OK to me, just got my wallet connected and downloaded the blockchain.


Just wondering a few things since I've been getting more into mining, pools, and blockchain technical info:

The estimated block time should be around 40 seconds, but sometimes on the block explorer it takes up to 30 minutes to advance by one block. I thought this was a bug on coinworld.us, but I checked my client with "getblockcount" and it didn't budge for a long time. Is this normal for Bitcoin/Litecoin as well? Why does this happen?

So I'm interested in what the value for priority is in this equation in the Florincoin code, I can't seem to find it.
Code:
priority = sum(input_value_in_base_units * input_age)/size_in_bytes
I see some transactions on the blockchain with less than 0.03 Florin sent, though the client itself stops you from sending transactions with less than 0.03 Florin, using the RPC or command line I can see these transactions being put into blocks. Is there the possibility that transactions with extremely low coin amounts might not ever get into a block? How can someone using the command line calculate the minimum input_value_in_base_units needed for each transaction (assuming input_age and size_in_bytes can be approximated within reasonable confidence)? I don't want to put transactions into the network that can't ever be put into a block.

I'm running a wallet on the command line. Ubuntu 12.04. At the moment you have to build it from source, I believe. If you need any help post here with your troubles. I'm thinking of creating a guide for this, so it would help to diagnose common problems in this thread.

I have added Florincoin to P2Pool.org!

Check it out here: http://204.10.105.89:17775/static/

To mine Florincoin point your miner to this IP:PORT http://204.10.105.89:17775

Use your Florincoin address as the username and any password. Please use a client address.

Happy mining!

I believe the next.afraid.org pool wrote an incorrect coinbase transaction into the blockchain. The transaction ID is a9a799594ab5e9b7729aaaacf2dd2bd55c878e693e2bc00c9cb46331ca6d9fb5.

http://florinexchange.com/explorer/tx/?txid=a9a799594ab5e9b7729aaaacf2dd2bd55c878e693e2bc00c9cb46331ca6d9fb5

It seems the coin amounts have been divided by 100, and there is a nonstandard vout listed as well (I'm not exactly sure what this means):
Code:
"value" : 0.00000000,
"n" : 6,
"scriptPubKey" : {
"asm" : "9aab71e536d19d4eac0d5fa897e143ffaf2fb9546017023fe3812a036e711f1c03000100",

"type" : "nonstandard"
}

I'm wondering how to contact the owner of this pool. Maybe I'll send a Florin message to F83dw8jJ5Gh2tPhStesEJZMoVsAL2Qyg91? :D

Post by: metacoin on September 12, 2013, 04:46:08 PM
Incorrect as in there should have been 100 coins and he only wrote a total of 1 coin to the people who trusted him to give them the correct amount of coins in exchange for their hashing power. I didn't mean to insinuate there is a problem with the blockchain, just alerting those who may be using this pool that there is a potential bug in the payout script.

Maybe it's not a pool

If not, yes, the users should be concerned

That brings up a good point which I didn't consider. It could be another miner or pool attempting to smear the next.afraid.org pool by writing this transaction, though I think this is unlikely. Is there a way to compare this coinbase transaction or its containing block to other next.afraid.org mined blocks containing correctly distributed coinbase transactions (of which there are many) to determine if it's an attempt to discredit the pool?

I do believe this is a bug in the pool's payout script, but I am interested in learning more about this in the event of a similar but more serious case presenting itself in the future.

****** Bounty Filled ******
I would like to have a new feature: have encryption of the messages. I would like to have it supports a combo encryption types: AES + HMAC-SHA1 encryption block chain Messages. Using this method would make extremely difficult to crack. The encrypted message must be posted in the plaintext bytes that are currently supported (140 character) It must not impact the block chain; It can be at the wallet level only. It must be compatible with the current FLO block chain.

If possible using of the existing Anontwi code as an example further to assist with development. They are currently working to get their code to 140 characters. This may assist with possible future features as they interface with the twitter API:
http://anontwi.sourceforge.net/anontwi-encrypt.html
http://anontwi.sourceforge.net

http://anontwi.sourceforge.net/anontwi-encrypt.html

Bounty will be paid once the wallet and all functionality is reviewed and published by Skyangel.
If you can possibly improve the blockchain to support longer encrypted messages or make them more efficient in the blockchain and have full support from the Florin dev, then that could be possible too and let's discuss.

If you would like to contribute to this or make a donation to cover cover and increase the bounty please see my signature. As donations come in I will increase the bounty.

  • Reorganization / orphaned blocks that were incorrectly cached in the database are now handled properly, every block should display correct next/previous hashes.

If anyone finds a bug, please report to me, 1000 FLO for the first report of a major bug that ends up fixed!

I've found something quite concerning over the past day, I've found its the case for FLO and ADT but not any other coins so far. It'd be great to get some input from other pool owners on this, it won't take long.

Now I'm still seeing blocks come through to the wallet and on mmcfe, but its worring this many are failing to reach the wallet. Effectively the pools found these blocks but failed to submit them to the wallet, meaning the pool gets nothing.

I don't see this on any other coin besides ADT.

Did this pool mess up? I can't log in.

 http://flo.smalltimeminer.com

I'm in the process of moving some of the pools to a better server, please try clearing your browser cache. Bigal

The new server has crashed and support is trying to fix it but has no estimate when that might be, I have re-enabled the old pool site as a temporary solution should you need your florincoin fix until the new server comes back online. You will need to create a new account to use the temporary pool as well.

Unfinished thought, maybe another bounty?  but I would like to see a multi partition wallet db. authentication on one partition of wallet, ie savings, and checking...? Where "savings.db" uses 2 part authentication and passphrase and Checking is as it works how it is currently? The savings portion would be nice to have it automaticly go to a google drive. Basicly a way to not use a cold storage wallet to feel safer... I would also like wallet.db to be named something other than wallet since malware is targeting this file name on all coins...

**********Community BOUNTY ***********
Another Feature request I2P support: support TOR via the SOCKS protocol. We should integrate the functionality to have both I2P and onion (TOR) nodes to connect to. If it is implemented correctly it would make each user anonymous. IMO all coins should have this..

In my research Bit coin attempted this here is a link the the bitcoin i2p project: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=151181.0

This coupled with my 1st bounty would be very attractive to many people...

This is the bounty BTC address for this feature:  1CoqpdiyM5emqYFVq4T4e6XUskM7eQ4ciE
All funds are publically viewable on the blockchain so that you can see how much we have raised. Additionally, I have deposited .1 btc to this wallet to start off the fundraiser.

Bounty will be paid once the wallet and all functionality is reviewed and published by Skyangel.

Open Source Color Coin implementation coming to Florin on Oct 1st.

Check back in this thread for more info over the weekend.

For those who are familiar with the types of color coin implementations, this one will be of the distributed-ledger account-based variety. It does not require destruction of Florin or any commit-coin crypto magic nor does it require hiding data in the transaction script which is a dangerous thing to do for many reasons.

You'll be able to make and trade color coins on colorcoin.org or simply through the satoshi/skyangel version of the Florin client itself with no modifications.

Eh, can't say I blame you, why wouldn't you have a backup in place? nobody is more frustrated than I am right now, that's what I get for trying to improve the pool I guess, the pools efficiency has increased about 30% on the new server, but its up time has been less than sub-par.

Thanks stink -- in actuality, my color coin implementation is more like that of Mastercoin's. However, I think Florin provides some functionality that is an improvement upon both color coin implementations in the Bitcoin blockchain.

I'll open up my site tomorrow for beta testers, I hope to bring some unique use-cases to Florin.

Multipool is killing mining on Florin I noticed REDcoin seems to survive pretty well with its 20 block retarget.... have you explored any ways to combat the multipools?

Could we simply make newly minted coins have a confirmation time of greater than 90 confirmations (ie 120) so they have to keep mining to get paid out? Red uses 50 confirmations for minted blocks and 6 for transactions.. I would think this option would be very easy to implement
I think this would deter them because if they spike the dif... they have wait days o get paid out... thus they will give up pointing @ flo because it would frustrate them...

Setting up the minting to a high number would not impact investors, as they know they will get thier coins.... To the multipools they might mine and leave sticking the diff up high, but if they had to wait 1 week when the price might have decreased it would not be as attractive to them...

Is there any overhead to increasing the minted blocks to 50-135?  (135 would be 1/2 a retarget...)

You need to use createrawtransaction or sendfrom to remove the "text:" string from the beginning of the tx-comment. Also, for now, the first input's vout address must match the first output's address while colorcoin is in beta. This is a temporary protocol to ensure that the transaction was signed by the user who intended to send that message to the network.

Some more testing should be done soon now that the difficulty has stabilized and blocks are being found at a normal rate.

Currently the blockchain is just under 100 MB in size, while the index is also about the same size. I have about 10 MB of logs in total, and with the few other files in the data directory, you might need around 250 MB available to run Florincoin at this point.

Please make sure your client is updated to the most recent version (0.6.5) as well. Links can be found in the first post of this announcement thread.

Introducing Florin (FLO) coin

http://i.imgur.com/hPYq19s.png

Florin coin is a scrypt based coin with quick transaction processing.
Florin coin also introduces a useful new feature - transaction comments.

http://i.imgur.com/AjpEs95.png Features

* 40 second block generation allows for fast confirmations, but not too fast to cause problems with network synchronisation.
* No pre-mine, super-blocks or zero-blocks at the start.
* Quick difficulty adjustment should limit insta-mining in the first hours after launch.
* A transaction comment can be added to any coin transaction. This can be used to attach a simple message or reference to a transaction, or for any other purpose decided by the coin receiver and sender. Transaction comments are currently limited to 140 characters. Both the GUI and RPC interface have been extended to implement this feature.
* The transaction comment can be seen under the "Transactions" tab when you double click on a a transaction ("Transaction information"). Also available from the terminal by doing "listtransactions".
* Note that transaction comments are stored in the block-chain and are therefore public. If you want to send private information in your transaction comment you should encrypt the message using a method agreed upon by the sender and receiver.
* Transaction comments have minimal impact on the size of the block chain due to their small size (relative to the size of a block in the chain) and the fact that they do not take up any extra space when not used in a transaction. Transaction costs (calculated on transaction size) also offset the impact of slightly larger transactions when a comment is included.

http://i.imgur.com/AjpEs95.png Specifications

Block target spacing: 40 seconds
Difficulty retargets every 90 blocks
Block reward: 100 FLO, halving every 800,000 blocks (about 1 year)
Maximum coins: 160 million FLO
Network port: 7312
RPC port: 7313

Title: Re: [ANN][FLO] Florin | Transaction comments | REQUIRED UPDATE v0.6.5
Post by: stink on October 18, 2013, 10:14:59 PM
Currently the blockchain is just under 100 MB in size, while the index is also about the same size. I have about 10 MB of logs in total, and with the few other files in the data directory, you might need around 250 MB available to run Florincoin at this point.

Please make sure your client is updated to the most recent version (0.6.5) as well. Links can be found in the first post of this announcement thread.

Is that you using t1:m> in the block chain, if you know who it is shoot me a pm please

The daemon was running but not updating the block index. I restarted the daemon and it caught up to the most recent chain, so the block explorer should be back up and running, and will write all the info from the past 1000 blocks or so that it missed last night. I haven't encountered this problem in the 4 months this block explorer has been active... maybe this happened because I recently restarted the server.

Sorry about that.

Title: Re: [ANN][FLO] Florin | The original transaction comment coin
Post by: metacoin on November 25, 2013, 01:04:17 AM
I think the best option is 256. This would allow 2 hashes and two addresses to be put in one tx-comment with plenty of room left over for protocol prefixes. It would also cut down on double transactions that will be chained together to represent one command (or any singular abstract concept that can only be represented by more than 140 characters).

256 was my gut, I vote for this. Please implement asap.

A required update for Florin is available for download.

Github source, Windows client, OP and web site updated.

This version 0.6.5.8 increases the maximum size of transaction comments to 528 bytes.

This increased limit will take effect at block 340,000 (about 3 weeks from now).

Dear FLO - Florin Coin
Miners and users.

I publish a new permanent node for FLO - Florin Coins.


# Permanent Node for:
# FLO - FlorinCoin
addnode=5.249.152.30:7312

BTW
For those of you that can be curious:
------------------------
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florin_(Italian_coin)

The Italian florin was a coin struck from 1252 to 1533 with no significant change in its design or metal content standard during that time. It had 54 grains of nominally pure or 'fine' gold (3.5g, 0.1125 troy ounce) worth approximately 200 modern US Dollars. The "fiorino d'oro" of the Republic of Florence was the first European gold coin struck in sufficient quantities to play a significant commercial role since the seventh century. As many Florentine banks were international supercompanies with branches across Europe, the florin quickly became the dominant trade coin of Western Europe for large scale transactions, replacing silver bars in multiples of the mark (a weight unit equal to eight troy ounces).
------------------------

The good stuff always return back ;)


Hope to help the community a little bit more :)

We are excited to be a part of the FLO community. We have seen an overwhelming response to our new FLO pool, with many more miners then we had initially anticipated signing up and hashing with us. This is a Great Thing, and we really thank everyone who has joined us in mining FLO in our pool. Unfortunately with all the unexpected traffic things got a little bogged down, hence the lag you experienced. However, we have already begun the upgrade process and things are already flowing much better. We look forward to hashing together with you in our pool of dedicated miners.

Florin looks ripe for increases again soon. Looks like the sweet spot bottom of the hill.
Buy orders piling.

This coin should be doing 2-3 times this. It's one of the few coins with an additional use.

Hi every body
My 5850 is run at 330 Kh/s , i'm mining at http://flo.smalltimeminer.com
Var diff change over time : 16 --> 512
When diff at 512 , the card lost more time to accept shares
When the block resolved , share is rejected ? ( and some time i see "job not found" )

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46151949/highdiff.JPG

I wondered whether this is disadvantage to my card
Thanks

Hey Sannin, thanks for the bug report. I've been using the wallet and accounts almost every day and haven't noticed a bug of this sort.

Can you please provide some info on your OS, version number, and some more detail on the issue? Also, please note that '' and "" are actually different accounts, so if you're accessing this command via an RPC interface (say, the PHP or C++ one) make sure the empty string is consistently the same on every RPC call.

A required update for Florin is available for download.

Github source, Windows client, OP and web site updated.

This version 0.6.5.8 increases the maximum size of transaction comments to 528 bytes.

This increased limit will take effect at block 340,000 (about 3 weeks from now).


Um I think we are about 2100 mins away from this happening... hope everyone loaded....

Thanks for posting the info.

I was in the middle of creating a script to record account addresses periodically when I remembered this -
Quote
getaccountaddress will return the same address until coins are received on that address; once coins have been received, it will generate and return a new address.
Source: Bitcoin.it wiki (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Accounts_explained)

Essentially when you call getaccountaddress the client goes through all of your transactions, and if you've received coins at that address it creates a new one and associates it automatically. This is an example of Satoshi implementing automatic anonymizing tools into the client. Some would argue the "change address" always being generated as a new address is an example of this also.

Here's some more info from bitcoinrpc.cpp:
Code:
CBitcoinAddress GetAccountAddress(string strAccount, bool bForceNew=false) {
    CWalletDB walletdb(pwalletMain->strWalletFile);

    CAccount account;
    walletdb.ReadAccount(strAccount, account);

    bool bKeyUsed = false;

    // Check if the current key has been used
    if (account.vchPubKey.IsValid())
    {
        CScript scriptPubKey;
        scriptPubKey.SetDestination(account.vchPubKey.GetID());
        for (map<uint256, CWalletTx>::iterator it = pwalletMain->mapWallet.begin();
             it != pwalletMain->mapWallet.end() && account.vchPubKey.IsValid();
             ++it)
        {
            const CWalletTx& wtx = (*it).second;
            BOOST_FOREACH(const CTxOut& txout, wtx.vout)
                if (txout.scriptPubKey == scriptPubKey)
                    bKeyUsed = true;
        }
    }

    // Generate a new key
    if (!account.vchPubKey.IsValid() || bForceNew || bKeyUsed)
    {
        if (!pwalletMain->GetKeyFromPool(account.vchPubKey, false))
            throw JSONRPCError(-12, "Error: Keypool ran out, please call keypoolrefill first");

        pwalletMain->SetAddressBookName(account.vchPubKey.GetID(), strAccount);
        walletdb.WriteAccount(strAccount, account);
    }

    return CBitcoinAddress(account.vchPubKey.GetID());
}

Does someone mind helping me? So I recently started mining Florincoin and after hours of getting my computer and gpu set up I have been mining for over an hour and have a few questions. My card is rated 430 khashes plus, at my current settings my computer is saying I'm getting 382.3 khashes average, yet on the mining pool website, flo.smalltimeminer.com it's been ranging anywhere from 7-130 khashes. I'm so confused any help would be lovely.

It could be that your ping to the servers is high for another reason. Can you post your miner config? For example:
Code:
cgminer --scrypt -I 19 -g 1 -w 256 --shaders 1024 --thread-concurrency 16000 -o stratum+tcp://exampleflorinpool.com:3333 -u yourAccountHere.1 -p

Solo mining is an option but with that hashrate you'd only get around 1-2 blocks per day.

Can someone explain to me what is going on and why my miner is getting 400 khashes and yet only under 40 khashes on the pool?

It sometimes takes 30-40 minutes to get an accurate reading from the pool. Also, could you post your miner config, with your intensity rating, thread concurrency and etc?

Hm, it should be an argument passed into your mining configuration, something like this:
Code:
cgminer --scrypt -I 19 -g 1 -w 256 --shaders 1024 --thread-concurrency 16000 -o stratum+tcp://exampleflorinpool.com:3333 -u yourAccountHere.1 -p

To solo mine Florin:

-windows:
--close Florincoin client if open
--locate Florincoin directory using >start>run>%appdata%
--create Florincoin configuration file in notepad as follows: (change the user/ password values what want them to be:)
Code:
rpcuser=yourname
rpcpassword=yourpass
rpcserver=1
rpcallowip=192.168.*.*
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

listen=1
port=7312
noirc=0
maxconnections=30
addnode=146.185.148.114
addnode=192.241.171.45

--save this file as: Florin.conf   (be sure to save it in the appdata Florincoin directory)
--relaunch Florincoin client and let it finish synchronizing with the network
--point mining client of your choosing to http://127.0.0.1:7312 with the user / password you assigned

Now mine!

If you use CGminer:

open notepad and write this line:
Code:
cgminer --scrypt -o http://127.0.0.1:7312 -u yourname -p yourpass -I yourintensity  

save it as .bat and copy it to your cgminer folder and start it

Nice guide - I'll add this to the page I'm working on.

BTW whichever pool is writing tx-comment into the coinbase, pretty awesome. You should contact me for an opportunity with color coin.

A required update for Florin is available for download.

Github source, Windows client, OP and web site updated.

This version 0.6.5.8 increases the maximum size of transaction comments to 528 bytes.

This increased limit will take effect at block 340,000 (about 3 weeks from now).



Wow look at what can be done with FLO with 528 bytes instead of btc's 80 ---

Your WU is too low, it should be around 90% of your Kh/s (atleast 350/m)., right now you are submitting about 11 Kh/s to the pool, and wasting electricity.
You should tweak your Intensity (-I) and Thread Concurrency (--thread-concurrency) until you reach optimal settings.

He says that one pool reports him 7kh/s (it isn't accurate but it should be much higher), other pools don't report anything.
Typical low WU - high HW problem.

Post by: Erasmuz on January 15, 2014, 05:04:41 AM
I'm hoping some one can help me out here...

I had a recent issue with my wallet.  I tried to send some coins elsewhere, and they were not getting confirmations.  24 hours later they were just sitting with no confirmations.  So I exported my private key, backed up my wallet, and restarted.

Everything looked like it was going okay, but once I was synced with the network my total coin count dropped... by quite a bit.

I started going through the block explorer (going back and forth between my old wallet and newly synced wallet) to find where things went wrong, and it seems as though every single block I solo mined shows a different random address?!

The following are just a few TransactionID's with the corresponding address according to the block explorer....

c4a5ad441ca46ce5b091565bd6a408ffb1b5f0a6c5c35c4133f9f4d9ac2bcd35 - FQocGu3n5DjJD9KGCnHPde88NzXPGmmYEF

1050d55cd131f717651d93d2ff408f2716303d3390c35c6a7376ca661a97da35 - FCY8nA1GSP7bvoLoyFjujmhHjsyC64P9TS

I can keep going on but I think you get the idea. (I can also show pictures if people want visuals for what I'm seeing).
So is this a bug in the block explorer?  How can I get my solo blocks?  Am I just screwed?  Is Florin broken?

Please help
Just out of curiosity if any one else has any solo mined blocks would they be willing to look and see on the block explorer if the transID match the correct address?

Thanks for any help

[UPDATE]  
So randomly after my wallet was just sitting here and everything was synced it sent my coins out.   The amount it shows being sent in the wallet transaction is not correct, but the amount for the transaction in the block explorer shows the correct amount.  I'm not really sure what's going on (and why it would randomly decide to resend the transaction I made 24 hours earlier), but at least for now it looks like the correct amount of coins are going through?

Post by: metacoin on January 15, 2014, 06:23:52 AM
Every time you mine a new block when you solomine it goes to a new address which isn't visible to you on the "receive coins" pane, but the private key is actually stored in the wallet.dat file. I think this functionality stems from Satoshi's policy of anonymity. Change addresses are similar to this.

If you backed up your wallet by manually finding the private key via "dumpprivkey <public address>" you probably didn't import all of the private keys in your wallet, which may include private keys "quietly" generated for your change addresses and solo mining addresses.

Some transactions with low priority don't make it to the network for a while, I'm not exactly sure what happened in your case, but it seems things were sorted.

Be careful when you back up your wallet, there are many instances when the wallet generates new addresses which you may be unaware of.


Could you post your operating system version as well as Florincoin-qt version?

Thanks for the clarification!

I'm running v0.6.5.8 in a Windows 7 64bit vbox in linux. (You probably didn't need to know all of that, but sometimes specifics can help debug; especially with guest os's)

This may not be the best place to ask, but what is the recommended solution if this something like this were to happen again?
I'm not saying it will, the florin wallet seems solid, I've never had an issue before, but just in case.

Thanks again!

Let's try to diagnose what the problem is.

  • Find the transaction ID of the transaction in question.
  • Go to help, debug window, console.
  • Type in "getrawtransaction <txid>"
  • Copy the rawtx, then type "decoderawtransaction <rawtx>"
  • Compare it to the raw transaction on the block explorer.

Also, when you find the transaction ID, (if you don't mind sharing it) can you please post it here so we can take a look?

If you're patient on cryptsy, you can probably pick that up in a week or so by putting out small walls on the low buy side. Prices are pretty attractive at this point.

Hi everyone.

There's a new pool a friend and I have been working on - check it out:

pool.florincoin.info (http://pool.florincoin.info)
pool.florincoin.info port 3333
stratum pool - PPS payout
3% fee

Support colorcoin.org and florincoin.info block explorer by mining in this pool!

Based in New York with extremely low latency.

Rumor has it this will be the first decentralized color coin distributing pool :) stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks...

cant get your pool to work=/

Looks OK to me. Block explorer is reporting new blocks every 40 sec on average. Maybe a small window of time when the difficulty was very high due to hashcows or some other coinswitching pool earlier in the day jumping on then leaving.

I made a faucet for FLO.

You need a 14-digit code to get FLO.

Some codes are worth more than others. Right now I have a bunch of 1 FLO giveaway codes. Here are three codes that someone can use to test.
Code:
rWB1G2MWUiAwNE
5DugrebXESmvuC
BUMLNx8UTzqK7b

http://florincoin.info/faucet

Also, a number of updates have been applied to the block explorer at http://florincoin.info

  • The main page multi-search function works now.
  • Transactions now display the correct input total. As a result, the fee should now be calculated correctly.
  • Blocks now display the correct number of confirmations.

I've shut down some of the older services that it seemed no one was using. Mainly older versions of the block explorer. Let me know if this causes any service interruption or inconveniences.

Hey everyone. If you didn't get a chance to earlier in the week, you can now leave an eternal message for someone on the blockchain using our new website: http://aterna.org/love

I posted this elsewhere but I am posting it here also.

http://aterna.org/love/img/aternalove_2.png


Aterna Love (http://aterna.org/love)

The idea is to use the proof-of-existence concept to attach a message into the Blockchain.

However, using the Florincoin blockchain, coins don't have to be destroyed to store messages in the Blockchain (which in Bitcoin is usually done by outputting getMinNonDustValue satoshis to multiple output addresses and storing data there).

 
We plan on releasing more user-friendly websites that harness the power of decentralization using the Bitcoin and Florincoin blockchain protocol.

I'm developing colorcoin.org as a side-project to list decentralized assets on the blockchain using a protocol I'm simply calling "color coin". It's similar to mastercoin/counterparty on the Florincoin blockchain.

Florin v0.6.5.13

Florin will hard fork at block 426000.

This should be in about 9 days at the current block generation rate of 300 per day.

Please update as soon as possible.

This fork is to adjust difficulty with every block. Current difficult adjustment is too infrequent and large, causing multi-pools to exploit this.

Also included in this Windows build:

* New OpenSSL version
* UPNP
* QR codes

Still on block 425999. http://flopool.digsys.bg/ is on the wrong chain. I tried to use their contact form, but it isn't operational. Does anyone know the pool manager?

What are some pools that are on the right chain?

Hey folks,

i've added a pool for this coin:

https://flo.suprnova.cc


We're on the latest wallet and on the correct chain.

It's currently completely free, test as you like, we yet have to find the first block but it should work fine.

It seems like everything has gone well with the hard fork! This is excellent news.

By the way, some criticism of 1 block retarget stems from the belief that it will increase the orphan rate. However, I've done some research on the matter with the block explorer. There have only been two orphaned blocks since the hard fork. Here is some info on the recent orphaned blocks:

Code:
| 425001 | efc69325a5f84b8027f6abde1ec9c951a4d260b2a65311b5fc7bb838c8f5b05a | 2014-04-22 17:22:26 |

| 425488 | d51ecfaa619ff63334d5847b3d3719b72eeae9038543cbab57bace551377cc38 | 2014-04-24 08:48:36 |
| 425489 | 29da5db18ede67361ef86e9b2ba1fb9a44fdca0a3f2a5443f2aea8cb493c4494 | 2014-04-24 08:48:41 |
| 425608 | f2e7afd72ad2deaaccb0c2c180cddf0ee5ad06ef0046bbe37ce14d678c70fcb8 | 2014-04-24 20:46:45 |
| 425842 | c6e240912a5f815bef70f922bbcc019c56d5417243f35a608e916f337bfa5e41 | 2014-04-25 16:49:18 |

| 426304 | 3de61d3bba41704fb8deda04d06cda8d3500709c7a0bba3d4570caba97e4abe2 | 2014-04-26 16:59:58 |

From block 425,000 to 425,999 (pre-fork) there were 7 orphans. From 426,000 to 426,841 (current block height as of this post) there have only been two.

Seems like the block explorer was stuck. Sorry, I have been checking it periodically but didn't realize it was not functioning properly. The network seems fine, the last block was found a few seconds ago. Have you any more details on the issue you're experiencing?

Someone hit my coyn.org domain a bunch of times and caused a DDOS attack on the server, I have found the source of the problem and resolved it.

My apologies to anyone that was attempting to use aterna love or the block explorer during this brief outage, it should be working now.

What's going on with this coin?

Is the original dev team still active?

I'm noticing a lot of investors staying away from coins which will have over 100 million coins.

Are there any plans to cut the max coins hardcap in half maybe?

I'm seeing a number of coins reducing their hardcaps considerably and I think that's a good way to increase shareholder value.

Florincoin(FLO) has established partnership with Bitscoinshop (http://www.bitscoinshop.com.br) where you can buy items by using Florincoin. As Florincoin is not yet integrated with the payment platform, you will need to use the following procedure during checkout:
 
1. Customers wishing to purchase using Florincoin should choose the product, along with signing up with the details and place of delivery;
 
2. Choose the bank transfer as the payment method, meanwhile leave a message to indicate that you want to pay with Florincoin;
 
3. In the message, specify the dollar amount of your purchase and the quote of the current exchanging rate . Bitscoinshop will convert the amount of your purchase into Florincoin, and send wallet address for payment.
 
4. Once confirmed the payment, items will be delivered.

Thanks so much shadowmoon!

I think we should look into https://www.coinpayments.net/ for a payment platform solution.

If Florin became accepted on coinpayments.net, would your site use coinpayments for processing alt-coin orders? It may be enough to convince them to integrate FLO payments.


Unrelated: here are some new FLO graphics I made this morning. They may be useful for a news article or something, who knows? ;)

Almost a year ago, Florincoin was introduced to the crypto community as the first coin to feature tx-comments! There are a number of projects already released and to-be released soon for Florincoin using this feature of the blockchain.

The first one is my own project, which was released on Valentine's day 2014: Aterna Love (http://aterna.org/love). The site provides users a friendly way to enter a love message into the blockchain to be stored forever for their loved one. It is a showcase of the power of Florincoin.

A few other projects are in the works and have been completed, you can view the other applications at florincoin.org (http://florincoin.org/#Applications)

GO with the FLO! :)

Here's a link to the form that must be filled in to issue a request for a coin to be added:

https://poloniex.com/coinRequest

Some answers to the tough questions can be found below!  ;)

What is the name of the coin? *
Code:
Florincoin

What is the coin's symbol? *
Code:
FLO

Please link to the announcement page. *
Code:

Yes, that would be great!

I think URSAY's suggestion of including a forum for bounties is a very key idea for organization.

I also think needing approval for posts is a bit too harsh. I think we can have certain sections of the forum that have this option enabled, but in general topics it should be open for all to post.

Florin multi-coin API

I am currently working on an API which will enable users to send messages to the Florincoin blockchain.  The FLO miners still require Florincoin for their work, so this service will provide the miners with FLO in exchange for the user's other cryptocurrencies.

http://i.imgur.com/MEkZFt5.png

The API will be implemented in a browser-friendly adaption (pictured above) as well as a standard HTTP web service.

The purpose of this API is to bootstrap decentralized applications powered by Florincoin.  As long as this service or another service running the same free software exists it will be possible for users to engage in applications hosted on the Florincoin blockchain without needing to own any FLO.  Of course, fluctuating value will sometimes cause problems, but can be mitigated by charging a premium for payments received in non-blockchain-native currency.  Users will find that paying directly in FLO or downloading the Florincoin only client is advantageous in many ways.  For general purpose users, the web interface will be a frictionless and user-friendly environment.

The project is being maintained in this repo: https://github.com/blocktech/multicurrency-payment-system

Currently there is only a README, the code that exists so far is just my tinkering around with HTTP in Go.

I had to put this particular project on hold for a more pressing Florincoin-specific project that is closely related to the multicurrency payment system.

You can follow/star the repo and you'll get some notifications when I start the commit frenzy again :D

The price for Florin has fallen off a cliff.  Are the devs here still active or what's going on?  I notice a lot of other alts are also dropping hard so maybe it's just the market overall.

Any info from regulars here would be appreciated.

Thanks?

I'm actively working on Florincoin right now - I work on it approximately 6 to 8 hours a day. Although, I am currently working on projects that build on top of Florincoin, not on the core code itself. You can see some of them in the previous pages of this thread. There is a rush to get decentralized applications pushed out, so I've been focusing on that rather than the core code. However, Skyangel has a core code update to update Florincoin to the newest LTC version, which is being tested as we speak. I should have actually been working on making that a reality sooner, since everything else I've worked on has been behind the scenes.

Thanks man, sorry to see such a low price given all your hard work.  On the bright side, the current price is a steal if there are good updates coming.  I paid 20,000 litoshi for my Florin Coins which I thought was a great deal at the time so that's why I was wondering what was going on.

Thanks and good luck!

It's not a problem at all. I don't concern myself with the price, and I welcome criticism with open arms.

Admittedly I was on hiatus for some months earlier in the year, and several of my websites that use Florincoin (the block explorer as well as Aterna Love) could use some updates.

I've found that there are like-minded people out there, and if you can connect with them, great things can happen. I'll be able to talk about my current project soon, but as of now, we're keeping things under the hood so we can underpromise and overdeliver.

That's awesome man, that's what I prefer.  You have a good rep so I would be buying if the price goes any lower [if I can get the BTC].

not worth the mining effort.

you should fork the coin and make the block reward 500 coins instead of 100 - maybe then people will mine it.

I'm actively working on Florincoin right now - I work on it approximately 6 to 8 hours a day. Although, I am currently working on projects that build on top of Florincoin, not on the core code itself. You can see some of them in the previous pages of this thread. There is a rush to get decentralized applications pushed out, so I've been focusing on that rather than the core code. However, Skyangel has a core code update to update Florincoin to the newest LTC version, which is being tested as we speak. I should have actually been working on making that a reality sooner, since everything else I've worked on has been behind the scenes.

cool well one of these days when you are no so busy, you will get around to your work on BitcoinInstant/Genesis.foundation? >>

The idea is to mine a coin you believe in so the future value will be much more.

This coin was 4-5 times the current price just 45 days ago so it's worth mining here even at $40 per day.

One thing I've noticed about Florin is that there is not a lot of supply to be bought up.  If demand ever picks up I can see the price sky rocketing.   Too bad we can't reduce the subsidy and max supply cause that would further help alleviate rhe current inflation and dilution of the coin.  Otherwise this is a good coin to help diversify any portfolio.

Do you know if they're planning to offer any anon solutions?  I personally think they're just gimmicks but it seems investors really look for that more than any other feature.  There's also SMS transfers and other really cool features which would be nice to see.

But like I said, I haven't read what the devs have planned for florin but if they're working on something then it's worth waiting.  And at the current price if you've got the spare LTC then it's a good time to buy in my opinion.

Thanks and good luck!

I added some as well when LTC went under $4.  How much Florin do senior members own here?  I like to have targets to shoot for.  Right now I think I own ~1% of the current outstanding florin coins.  I wish the max dilution would be cut with the next update but that's up to the devs here.  It would greatly help to lower inflation (subsidy) and dilution (max cap) to be ready for when demand picks up later this fall.

Cheers!

That's awesome!

Would the devs here seriously consider cutting the inflation [subsidy] and dilution [Max Supply] in the next code update?  

It would really help increase shareholder value the next time demand picks up.  Exactly like a corporation doing a stock BuyBack.

I think it's a good move for any coins to do as it improves their valuation profile for new investors whom are investing savvy, and we'll get millions of these types over the next couple years.

That and a currency's value is determined by the following Formula:  Transaction Volume/Velocity + 1/Supply

Therefore:  To increase the value of FlorinCoin we need to either increase the tx volume, decrease velocity or decrease the coin supply.

The only one which can be done now, at zero cost and with significant [immediate] impact is reducing the supply.  


I truly hope the devs take this proposal into consideration before the next wave of investors hit cryptos, probably starting in September [next month].

Cheers!

That's better than nothing.  What is the next halving going from what to what and how many more days?  I hope it takes effect before the next boom which looks like it is starting to happen as we speak.

Flo is no pump and dump. if you want fast money you can reduce the total supply. but as I understand the dev. they are here for the long run. keep it like it is, and keep doing the awesome work you guys are doing :) If you want value to last, it has to come naturally.

Hey all,

I will be presenting a new open-source project that is based on the Florincoin blockchain at the Inside Bitcoins conference in Las Vegas this weekend and early next week. The purpose of the project is to back up cultural knowledge, market data, and other important info into the Blockchain as well as a bittorrent-type system to preserve data integrity and distribute information. This encourages freedom of speech, reduces the risk of centralized control of data, and makes it easier to find important research data without having to scour the internet for sources which may or may not be reliable or even online any more.

The Florincoin blockchain is utilized for not only data storage, but for proof-of-publication and node coordination as well.
 
The project is free to use and multi-platform, the beta should be out soon enough and we will be displaying it at our booth at Inside Bitcoins, where I will be answering questions and giving out beta passes to those interested in testing the software before it's released.

If you've been following my github (https://github.com/metacoin), or the @Official_Florin (http://twitter.com/Official_Florin) twitter, there are some hints as to what the project will entail.

Before the project is launched I should also have a released new Mac wallet and some bugfixes to the Florincoin client that are 100% my responsibility and are long overdue (since this project has consumed my life)!


Later down the line, I have a few graphics artists and game designers interested in making a Florincoin-based game, something like deckbound but not promising a guaranteed 130% return (?). If you haven't read my whitepaper on turn-based gaming in the blockchain, check it out here: florincoin.org/game (http://florincoin.org/game).


Thanks everyone,

metacoin

we are gonna experiment with a 'micro currency' backed 'in-house' (on Un-Ex, our in-house exchange) by silver bullion. At first it will be 'non-cryptographic' -- kept on a 'Register.' But could we add a transaction messages that would supersede the Register?

Yeah, I also have 2 connections on my personal computer.


Here's my new addnode list:

Code:
addnode=54.209.141.153
addnode=54.164.167.95
addnode=198.27.69.59
addnode=37.187.27.4
addnode=192.241.171.45
addnode=146.185.148.114

This covers the major pools and block explorers, as well as nodes that have more than a year of uptime. Does anyone else have any addnodes they'd like to share?

I think the decline of solo mining is having a negative effect on full-node count. By the end of the year, we should have two new distributed applications running on Florincoin, which will help increase the connection count.

Yeah, Florin is a great coin so I don't mind holding long term.  I feel very confident I can get 10 times that in less than 6 months but right now I have more pressing matters which require many bits so I'm selling coins I'm not personally attached to.

That said, I'm not in a hurry to dump a great coin and I don't want to cap Florin's momentum; hence the 24 hour time limit.

If someone has the money then grabbing 1.4% of florin in one bite is a great deal - even if it is at a considerably higher price than market.

Cheers!


Edit:  For the record, I am not selling all my FLO - only about half.  Like I said - I really like the developers and their consistent development of Florin.

I only wish they would take my advice and cut the inflation and dilution but that's another story.  lol

Great and consistent development always comes back to pay in spades.

That is the single sole reason why I bought nearly 2 million FLO when it got to a stupid low price.

I'd like to thank everyone here for the support given to our dev team - it means more than anything to see recognition for our work on this beautiful open source madness that Satoshi started and has since branched into thousands of different projects, one of which is Florincoin. I think the next decentralized app that runs on Florincoin will make it clear to the community how powerful the technology behind the blockchain really is.

I saw this quote on reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2j8y5e/will_say_it_again_its_the_bitcoin_incentive_that/cl9m13y) the other day:
Quote
That is the bit of genius in the design of Bitcoin, and other blockchain apps:
Give users the ability to contribute to the network, and pay them for it.

I'm a hobbyist miner myself, and someone who got interested in Bitcoin years ago but didn't realize its potential until I truly understood the blockchain and the idea of power and change derived from consensus.

--

I only wish they would take my advice and cut the inflation and dilution but that's another story.  lol
This is something I didn't address last time it was brought up on this forum, and I apologize for that. It's my belief that the majority users of Florincoin would opt to stick to the chain that began with a set amount of coins and stuck to that rule hard and fast. Of course, there's nothing stopping anyone from forking a new version of FLO with a lower coin cap, and re-implementing all of the apps that we've built on top of it. Such is the nature of Bitcoin and all of its related free-software programs. Personally, I'd like to stick with the 160 million limit. Besides, the block halving is only a few weeks away, so perhaps that strikes a timely and fair medium between the two philosophies? I hope not to discourage discussion on this issue; any and all suggestions are welcome and the ramifications should be carefully considered and discussed at length before a hard fork is planned for the network.

how come the v0.8.7.3-unk-beta wallet is saying 2 active connections? shouldn't I see 8?
I have 48 connections active on the Block Explorer (ports open), and 2 connections on my personal computer.

Have you updated your addnodes list? (I have to do this too!)
so you have 2 connections like me then?
where can I find a list of nodes?
Yeah, I also have 2 connections on my personal computer.


Here's my new addnode list:

Code:
addnode=54.209.141.153
addnode=54.164.167.95
addnode=198.27.69.59
addnode=37.187.27.4
addnode=192.241.171.45
addnode=146.185.148.114

This covers the major pools and block explorers, as well as nodes that have more than a year of uptime. Does anyone else have any addnodes they'd like to share?

I think the decline of solo mining is having a negative effect on full-node count. By the end of the year, we should have two new distributed applications running on Florincoin, which will help increase the connection count.
Thanks!!

Why would anyone want nearly 8% of all the outstanding FLO?

I mean, what's the purpose?  Given how tight the supply is anyone who wants to buy such a big chunk would have to offer a big premium to the current asking price.  Unless you find desperate buyers of course.

But I would like to know why so many people are looking to buy such large chunks of FLO all of a sudden.

Besides the fact FLO has good active devs - this was the case months ago and nobody wanted millions of FLO.

3 scenarios:

1) Classic market pumper :
If you want to pump cheap coin long-term, you need to buy high volume at low price, to prevent expensive dumps and slowly sell later. But buying is never announced publicly.

2) Scammer:
Claim you want to buy high volume publicly, so others will think pump is incoming. People will pull sell orders and buy more and pump the price. This is good when scammer has already bought high volume cheap and want to sell to others expensive.

3) Long term investor


Since there is constant buy pressure on FLO last month, high volume of cheap coins was bought already. Your 1 million FLO at 25777 price were not bought.  Price is already 4-6x higher than it was in July-August. I would expect profit taking period at this stage. In my opinion scenario 2 is the most probable.

I usually try to stay away from speculation but I have some theories on this. As a disclaimer, I am not an expert and I would advise extreme caution when investing and speculating on any market, especially the crypto-currency market. There is a lot of risk involved.

If you look at the market history on Cryptsy, it looks like a lot of people are putting up sell walls that are getting bought up slowly, probably because of how high the price is compared to 2-3 months ago.

The block halving is happening soonish, so perhaps those that are holding long are suddenly realizing it's happening soon and reacting to this now.

The hashrate has gone up a lot in the past few weeks, probably 10x what we usually have on the network. This sometimes causes an increase in price when new miners are speculative rather than opportunistic (it is possible we have more miners that hold their funds instead of immediately cashing out to recoup electricity and maintenance costs).

Also, I'm working with a team to develop software that will be run on the Florincoin blockchain to archive cultural and market data. This project will use FLO to pay for blockchain messages (tx-comments) so the volume of coins traded on the blockchain is going to increase (and has been increasing due to my tests). There is absolutely no reason to believe that this will raise the price of FLO. If you want to learn more about the project, listen to the Let's Talk Bitcoin podcast I posted earlier on this page.

Using FLO to pay for this application will be possible so it would be the first application to make use of the FLO token for something other than trading, which is kind of cool. Certainly volume on the market could increase if people buy or sell FLO to use the the app, but it doesn't necessarily mean the price will increase or decrease.

The block halving happens at 800,000 blocks. As of this post, we're on block #794,301.

Code:
int64 static GetBlockValue(int nHeight, int64 nFees)
{
    int64 nSubsidy = 100 * COIN; // Florincoin: 100 (Litecoin: 50)

    // Subsidy is cut in half every 800000 blocks
    nSubsidy >>= (nHeight / 800000); // Florincoin: 800k blocks in ~1 years

    return nSubsidy + nFees;
}

How have ASICs ruined scrypt. When new coins come out i often see 1 mil mh/s on all x algo coins. Anyone can now afford a scrypt asic and mine 100 mh/s you have to rent from a farm if you want 100 x algo mh/s. Scrypt coins have long term miners as the miners own the asics. x algo coins only get big miners when they are launched, once the diff goes up then they are left with all the home miners on small mh/s

Ducknote added encrypted transaction comments and rebranded as dark note. Despite using the cryptonote algorhythm, which many people see as flawed, their market cap is over $500,000.

If Florin had encrypted transaction comments it would probably do quite well.

Hi Florin community.
If you want to get FlorinCoin to be easy to use Payment coin, join in HANSA project and same way get rewards.
HANSA will use same kind of message field as Florin have.

Transaction message will be use for verifying transactions without wallet or payment gateway connections.
When those shopping cart plugins and explorer API are ready, they will be suitable for Florincoin as well.
This is open source MIT project.

You can claim "Jobs" already now, but coin launching date is 19th.
I contact to you specially because one project is to manage message field as it is in FlorinCoin.

I would wait something like 16 to 20 blocks, but of course it depends on the network conditions at that time. It all depends on what your tolerance for risk is. If you think someone would spend a fortune on Scrypt ASICs to 51% attack Florincoin, then you might want to wait for over 100 confirms.

Small update: if you want to start using Florincoin for app development, and you're writing code in Go, check out this really simple interface I created for calling RPC commands. It's a fork of confirmal system's btcd package.

So what's going on here? I just checked the Florin dev's profile and it appears he hasn't been on here for over a month. Is this coin still being actively developed? For a PoW coin with max 160,000,000 coins, it's very tempting to buy atm with the price being under 500 sat.

Google for alexandria and Florin and you know why...

I just googled 'alexandria', 'florin' and the entire first page results has nothing to do with cryptocurrencies. Can't you be a bit more generous/helpful/specific with your information giving? I don't have time to go hunting for clues. Is there a specific site/article/post you could point me to?

Thanks I'll check it out. I wasn't being rude BTW, I typed "alexandria florin" into the google search box and got absolutely nothing cryptocurrency related. You obviously typed it differently, if you'd provided me with the exact way to do it, I wouldn't have had to bother you again. Just sayin'  :)

Great, so bryce is behind this?

I can't believe I sold most of my 2,800,000 FLO over the past 2 days.

Looks like FLO is just getting started, only a $50k market cap, so I'm gonna try to buy some of my FLO back.

Let's see if we can add 2+2 here real quick-like.


-  Bryce is buddies with Joey [FLO dev].  I know people and this is a fact.  They've been chilling together for quite a few months.

-  Jebus911 is a twitter troll who is lock-in-step part of any and all Bryce pumps and various coin projects.

-  FLO spiked 300% on big volume on zero news, zero hype and it's holding rock solid - which means somebody doesn't mind paying 4 times more for FLO and they're willing to buy all they can get.

-  Jebus just so happens to post saying Florin has been working on various projects; implying big things are coming.



So then....



Edit:  BTW, I stated long ago that I'm nearly certain Bryce is a fed.  Just an FYI.  More reason why I buy into his coins.  Hahaha! Props, bro!  You guys hiring?  Haha!

There are many of coins on Cryptsy which spiked on no news for no reason and were pumped to 5-10x price and dumped few days later in last 2 months . The scenario was always the same, buy high volume cheap, pump to 10x price, than place big buy order at 3-5x of pre pump price and wait. Than some noob came, placed another big buy order near that big order and suddenly old buy order disappeared and pumper dumped. He earned big profit thanks to buying high volume cheap. Than he just sold the rest and left the coin. Classic pump trap. I have sold everything at 49000 already and I do not care if it will go to 100,000 or higher. What I know, FLO is now pumped, and I never buy into pumps. So If I own coins, and I think probability of dump is higher than of pump, I sell and I am fine with my gains. If you have sold, you did smart decision, anything else is just speculation.

Hi everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself - my name is Devon Read, I'm the founder and CEO of Blocktech and the inventor of Alexandria (but certainly not it's developer - we've got some really amazing people doing the magic behind it). We've been public about Alexandria being under development for nearly a year, and have never made it a big secret that it was being built on Florincoin. The recent uptick in activity on the coin has been due to people finding out more about what exactly Alexandria is. We were pretty much in stealth mode on it since October, and in the past week we've started showing alpha-stage builds to a couple dozen cryptoheads. We reached out to a number of exchanges to consider carrying Florin so that trading into it is as easy as possible for our users from whatever other coin they have, and Poloniex and Bittrex were both excited to support the coin once they understood more about Alexandria.

If any of you have any questions about Alexandria, why we chose to use Florincoin, or anything else, just let me know. If you'd like to join our private beta list, there is a sign up form on our website (www.blocktech.com) and if you'd like to check it out in it's current pre-beta stage, send me a PM.

Thanks!
Devon

We used Florin because it allows 528 bytes of messages to be attached to each transaction and because it has a short blocktime (40 seconds) which was conducive being able to discover recently-published content quickly, and also because Alexandria's lead dev is the co-lead dev of Florincoin. We'll be integrating some Storj* functionality when they're ready to rock - namely to let publishers (optionally) create storage and seeding contracts with storj metadisk users, but we have no plans for it to replace Florin's current capacity as our publishing ledger.

*Edit - actually, we plan to evaluate using Storj, Filecoin and Maidsafe for this functionality. All aim to provide the same service in slightly different ways and all are very exciting projects. If you don't know of them, you can check them out at:

Since this is not a secret project can you clarify who the co-lead devs of Alexandria are?  Right now I presume they are Joey and Bryce but it would be nice to know for sure.

Also, you say you're evaluating using the other cryptos so is FlorinCoin not a guaranteed use for Alexandria? 

Thank you for your input and clarification.

Hi Vlad - The developers of Alexandria are Joey Fiscella (back end), Ryan Taylor (front end) and Niv Sardi (back end), and Ryan Jordan is the UI/UX designer. Bryce left Blocktech back in October and has not worked on Alexandria.  We're evaluating other cryptos to add additional functionality for publishers, but Florin will continue to function as our publishing blockchain, the backbone of the library.

Glad i could clear things up :)

Thanks for the prompt response, Devon.  I did hear about what happened to Bryce but one can not count on rumors so thanks for clarifying.

And also thanks for clarifying that the other coins you are evaluating will only be used in addition to FlorinCoin.

That is excellent news.

Best regards...

We're evaluating other cryptos to add additional functionality for publishers, but Florin will continue to function as our publishing blockchain, the backbone of the library.

Let me be more clear.

In the world I see, a multitude of blockchains will serve niche purposes, and tools like ShapeShift will be used to handle the relatively frictionless process of trading from whatever "reserve" currency a particular user carries, into the coin used for whatever particular process they are requesting. In this world, I would expect there will be 1-5 clear market cap leaders for that "reserve" currency, and dozens or hundreds of niche coins providing specialized services. Miner hashes will ebb and flow between them, so that as one networks drops in value, its hash rate will as well, and miners will be able to smoothly move to another network, rather than simply be forced to shut their hardware down. A stable version of this world is still a few years away, I'd guess.

However, the current silicon valley push for one-blockchain-to-rule-them-all with pegged sidechains a-la blockstream may lead to a world where there is only one dominant blockchain, with a multitude of pegged chains providing those niche services I spoke of. Unfortunately, in this instance, when the coin value drops from time to time, miners will be left with only the choices of selling at a loss, or turning off their miners. So, I don't see it as the 'best' scenario for the world, but the value peg between bitcoin and the sidechains may correct for this. Regardless, my point is simply that we want Alexandria to work as well as possible. If people are willing to accept a multi-blockchain world, we'll be sticking with Flo for our publishing ledger, and adding other coins for whatever other niche services they may offer, but if the industry is going to migrate to a mono-blockchain solution, and it actually works as well, we'll likely move the same direction. Only time will tell, of course.

If I had known I would have bought 10% of the coin for nothing but a few BTC.

What I understood at the time was that they would use FLO but only temporarily.  I had no idea Joey was co-lead dev and that FlorinCoin was a guaranteed core player.  I guess it's not too late.  lol

It will be a 100% proof of stake (holding florincoin) voting foundation to fund projects related to florincoin proliferation.

Website is still in its formative stages, but it will be hosted in the next few weeks at foundation.florincoin.info, the same site as the current florincoin block explorer, and will serve to be a sounding ground and forum for community members and developers of florincoin.

Why aren't you guys announcing this stuff to the crypto media?  Especially the progress on Alexandria.  No, I was wrong, Bryce ain't helping out, if he were - the whole Crypto-World would know by now.  lol

Heya

Just FYI that we're mining FLO on our multipool: www.xpool.ca and miners have the option to keep their FLO just by entering their FLO address in their user settings.

Cheers!
Cool, thanks crackfoo :) good to see new pools online every day.

There is a small part of the protocol that we haven't decided on yet: We want to make it a requirement, in Alexandria, that when users post media they must contribute an additional small FLO fee to the miners. We believe incentivizing miners to participate in the network by requiring all users of the FLO block chain as a protocol layer to contribute to the miners in some way. This is an important anti-spam measure, as well as additional compensation for the miners' work; verifying and storing these extra protocol tx-comments and transaction data on their machines.

Q: Why not just raise FLO fees across the board (since fees are calculated by transaction size in bytes anyway)?
A: FLO users who do not participate in Alexandria should not be negatively affected by additional systems running on the block chain.

With this requirement in place, miners can receive a reward for their work above and beyond the coinbase subsidy they already collect. If no one has any objections to this, we will most likely require a 1-5 FLO fee (paid to the miners) for each new publisher / media submission added to the block chain. The protocol will ignore transactions without a fee, even if they contain valid protocol data in the tx-comment.

Why aren't you guys announcing this stuff to the crypto media?  Especially the progress on Alexandria.
The beta of Alexandria is not nearly complete enough to release yet, though it does work well enough as an MVP. Our intention is to release the project to the media after it's been polished and tested thoroughly in private first. Too many times I have seen projects hyped only to fail upon a public launch.

Seems reasonable to me, provided that there can be an adjustment of the fee later if/when the price rises sufficiently -- don't want to price people out of contributing content to the network (especially when you consider different scale economies than that in the US).

Just found about florincoin in the last few weeks and was impressed by the implications in the whitepaper.

How developed is the color coin system in Florincoin?
Is it protocol compatible with OpenAssets?


Title: Re: [ANN][FLO] Florin 0.8.7.4 | The original transaction message coin
Post by: jcrubino on April 04, 2015, 01:13:50 AM
I have been working on creating hybrid assets of various altchains tokens and came to the conclusion that colored coins (thus my post above) was the way to go as it allows for hyper decentralization of the exchange of value among blockchains.

My basic approach to a provable decentralized chain exchange is:

 1. proof of burn coins or use a multi-million year time locks
        a. in this transaction, embed the prepared colored coin issuing transaction on the other chain
        b. hash tag
 2. Issue Colored Coins on external chain with hash tag



This creates immutable cross-referenced color coins fit for value exchange on the external chain

Bitcoin would be great for this application for security purposes and audience but the metadata political limit might cause problems if used for anything other then the color coin issuance.

Using a meta friendly blockchain like Florin would allow an auditable decentralized clearing-house platform that can track coins burned and colored coins issued on external chains.

Overall this provides a platform viable as a distributed cross chain clearing-house platform and enable hyper decentralization of the altchain token and asset trade.

I am interested in hearing your thoughts on this approach, on whether Florin should host this application protocol or should a fork take place to host this specific application.  As Florin is a Blockchain Tech creation, its seems a fork is the norm and is a good idea when the distribution of current currency is unknown, additionally the proof of work feature while proven might not be the best fit for this application purpose.  Yet I can't think of a better name than Florin and there is enough altcoins where reduce, reuse and recycle might be a smart choice.

Hi, sooner or later bitcoin will adapt to sidechain technology. Proof of Burn with coins created in sidechain is the future of Bitcoin. With this feature it will probably kill altcoins. BTC is worldwide accepted and with sidechains it will be as good as any other alt coin. There can be many sidechains, anonymous, fast, etc.. Even with smart contracts like Ethereum:)  It is much easier for Bitcoin to adapt to sidechain technology, compared to getting worldwide acceptance for some altcoin with sidechain technology.  But the fact is, sidechain technology is a huge advantage for altcoin compared to other alt coins.  Anyway, all those ideas can be obsolete compared to Thelonios+decerver technology. Check: https://thelonious.io/ and https://decerver.io/.

Post by: jcrubino on April 09, 2015, 05:00:14 PM
I agree that this can be done with side chains, and this is part of the reason for this design.  It adapts to side chains or non side chained altchains. I am of the mind thinking there will be many blockchain based networks some day each with a specific niche.  If Bitcoin was the standard P2P payment network globally, I would not be surprised.  But I would be surprised if developers decided to only build new blockchain models off of sidechains.

There is a steady stream of work saying POS variations can be strong enough to run blockchains and have a tough time believing that Bitshares, Ethereum, NXT, and Peershares et. al. are just going to get made irrelevant by all the POW side chained alternatives.   So I am planning both for side chained and non side chained blockchains in the future that have their own economic systems.

Furthermore, Lighting Payment Channel based networks could provide a near real time off chain layer for smart contracts based on the basics outlined above alleviating blockchain bloat on any one blockchain that is not subject to the txnID malleability problems.

These are all contingencies I am balancing for.

It's not dead. I was invited into the private alpha about a month ago and it's still in development. It's just not one of those coins with a bunch of people hyping it (which is better as far as I'm concerned). 

I'm not accumulating anymore, but then, I did plenty of that last year when nobody was paying attention to it...

people who belive in FLO are just waiting for the release of alexandria, I know many who will wait at leas two months from now holding FLO.
I've bought some because I saw BTCA calling them many times. And we know BTCA is a trusted person right now, so I believe in FLO too.

Hi Folks

Just wanted to share this video walkthru to update everyone on the status of Alexandria!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHoWBLFxcng (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHoWBLFxcng)

TL;DR - it's in alpha right now, we're aiming for a private beta release in 6 weeks, and public beta with open source code on github about 6 weeks after that. You can see the features that will be included in the private beta in the video, and there is a full run-down of planned feature development at www.Blocktech.com (http://www.Blocktech.com), where we are starting a crypto-only crowd funding campaign today. This isn't a coin offering, as Florincoin is of course already on the market, but a request for the community to contribute toward the development of a product designed to be used and owned by all.

The dev team and I try to keep an eye on this thread and will be happy to answer any questions we can.

Devon

Small update on my part -

I've been unable to work on anything lately due to my computer being in for repairs followed shortly by a personal issue which has resulted in my inability to focus on work for the past weeks. Most of this has been sorted out and I will be hopefully returning to development work within a week or so.

Development on Alexandria doesn't depend solely on my input and the team has been able to get updates done without my involvement lately; I will soon be working hard again on the project to ensure we reach the May 26th goal for public beta release.


By the way, this is hilarious:

Devon, metacoin... 

Thank you a lot guys for your updates.  Awesome news and this project is really amazing, it's chasing the right and original ideology of what crypto was aimed to be [should be] and putting to full contribution the blockchain tech. I've read the roadmap a couple of times and can't wait to see this coming to life, as well as the api's that I will definitely play/work with  :)

I see we can support this development by donating and you've added all possible payment options for us  :D I will make sure to contribute, even if little, I guess if we are many that do it, it all adds up and can do magic. I really hope you guys will also find few angels investors among the crypto enthusiasts that also believe in this Alexandria project.

Cheers!

Quick question: Once this is hooked up with BitTorrent, will this really be possible to use without a central service?  ie: videos can be shared and streamed P2P with a torrent link and never require any hosting

It looks like the current Alexandria wallet is custom made HTML wallet and synchronizes with the Florin blockchain.  So, this app currently requires no central servers whatsoever to function?

This is very interesting, thanks for sharing.

Yes, the whole point is that it works without any servers. The lookup info that gets stored in the blockchain is simply the torrent hash. Right now, the client finds the file in the DHT using this hash - pretty soon we'll be adding some alexandria-specific torrent trackers to make peer discovery happen faster, so at that point there will be "servers" involved to an extent, but they wouldn't be required, just beneficial.

And yes, the app is an HTML and JS front end, with a python and go backend, compiled into a standalone app with Node Webkit. And yes, it syncs with the florincoin wallet, which needs to be running as well. Later in our dev plan we'll be integrating the wallet itself into the Alexandria app so that users dont need to run the separate Florincoin-QT wallet as well.

Thanks for your quick answers!

First off, if you are in San Diego, you have company here in North County :)

One more question for you Devon. Is Florincoin going to remain the defacto cryptocurrency for this project?

If so, Florincoin is likely the most undervalued cryptocurrency in history of cryptos.  I believe with an increasing market cap for FLO, it will be much easier to crowd-fund.

Cheers, thanks

This is kind of funny, but FLO is traded on Cryptsy in the LTC markets: https://www.cryptsy.com/markets/view/FLO_LTC (https://www.cryptsy.com/markets/view/FLO_LTC) This needs to be added to the BTC markets

I've been waiting for someone to build "Pirate Bay on a Blockchain"...
But this needs to breakout in the "torrent community" as opposed to the "crypto community"...
Get an article on TorrentFreak and promote on file-sharing forums.

There is ongoing Total War on the torrent space from rich, fat Hollywood lawyers...
(In spite of the fact that Hollywood has > $10 billion in revenues versus about $200 million for all torrent sites)...
Build a toolkit so any torrent site can move quickly (in days) to Alexandria... as opposed to shutting down.

You also are replacing a free add supported service... with pay-as-you go = may be some initial resistance.

There is ongoing Total War on the torrent space from rich, fat Hollywood lawyers...
(In spite of the fact that Hollywood has > $10 billion in revenues versus about $200 million for all torrent sites)...
Build a toolkit so any torrent site can move quickly (in days) to Alexandria... as opposed to shutting down.

You also are replacing a free add supported service... with pay-as-you go = may be some initial resistance.


Yep, this is a pretty radical concept and has some pretty crazy applications such as what you speak of.  

This is the advantage of using Florincoin actually.  This way Blocktech has no financial connection to the network and can build the network without fear of the financial/legal issues related to token issuance and Torrent

Bravo.

Content can be accessed for free, if the person that is paying to put the content into the Florin Blockchain wants it accessed for free.  The fee system does not require a fee, and can even simply allow for suggested donations.

Watch the video more closely.

BTW, can we just call the Florincoin blockchain the "Flockchain" ?  ;D

Quick question: Once this is hooked up with BitTorrent, will this really be possible to use without a central service?  ie: videos can be shared and streamed P2P with a torrent link and never require any hosting
That's correct, it will be possible to use without a central service. Media is streamed directly from webtorrents and the blockchain is used as a ledger of publisher information and published media (including magnet URIs).

It looks like the current Alexandria wallet is custom made HTML wallet and synchronizes with the Florin blockchain.  So, this app currently requires no central servers whatsoever to function?
Yep, exactly.

Can you explain how the exchange will happen.  There was something said about being able to buy Florincoin with Bitcoin directly in the Alexandria wallet.  How does this work?  Shapeshift.io?  APIs?

Initially we wanted to go thru shapeshift, but they said Florincoin didn't have enough volume to justify the effort to add it to their system, so we did it internally. It's a very simple process, just click "buy more" in the Alexandria wallet and a new btc address will be generated and provided to the user - a script watches the new address, and when a deposit comes into it, it looks up the exchange price, averaging the 3 current exchanges and sends flo to the users address. it's a 1-confirmation thing, so with BTC it should take 10-20 minutes to load up a wallet to be able to publish content.

That's awesome.  Can't wait to check out the beta test!

If you have time, keep us updated with screenshots and more info as you guys make progress

This is obviously going to be translated into many languages (hopefully hundreds) at some point, will users be able to select a language in the Alexandria wallet down the road?

Quick note about the Florincoin protocol:

This protocol is stated to have a total coins of 160 million.  However, the protocol doesn't appear to actually do that.  This network will continue being mined long after 160 million coins are produced due to the protocol specifications:

https://github.com/pascalguru/florincoin/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L839

Just basic mathematics.

MAX_MONEY= 160,000,000

https://github.com/pascalguru/florincoin/blob/master/src/main.h#L40

However, this is not the actually maximum that will be produced by the network this is only the maximum that can be sent in a transaction.

This is not a problem for the function of Alexandria, am I reading this code correctly or does this cap it off at 160,000,000 ?

Or does this fix it?

This coin is gaining a lot of attention. Many people that would have not even given it a second look, are now mining it. Very nice revival. Great work. It would be REALLY nice to have a bootstrap.dat as the chain is so large or atleast many addnodes or better yet, both. Please post what you can to the op.  Again, VERY nice work reviving an old coin, and VERY difficult to do, and you not only revived it, its VERY alive!!! NICE!!

Florin uses the same mechanism as Bitcoin and Litecoin where coin production is halved every number of blocks.

This can be seen in the line you referenced:

https://github.com/pascalguru/florincoin/blob/master/src/main.cpp#L839

Code:
  // Subsidy is cut in half every 800000 blocks
    nSubsidy >>= (nHeight / 800000); // Florincoin: 800k blocks in ~1 years

This will halve the subsidy every 800,000 blocks, producing a geometric series (100, 50, 25, etc.) whose sum is ~ 100 * 800,000 * 2 ~ 160 million.

Florin coin (Australian Coin)
The Australian florin was a coin used in the Commonwealth of Australia before decimalisation in 1966. The denomination was first minted in 1910, to the same size and weight as the United Kingdom florin. Florins minted from 1910 to 1945 were produced with a .925 sterling silver content, weighing 11.31 g (0.3636 troy ounces) with an actual silver weight (ASW) of 10.46 grams (0.3363 ozt). Florins minted between 1946 and 1963 were produced with a .500 silver content, weighing 11.31 g with an ASW of 5.65 g (0.1818 ozt).

The florin was worth 24 pence, two shillings or a tenth of a pound. The coin was minted until 1963, with some years of omission. When Australia decimalised on 14 February 1966 the florin was equal to 20˘.

So happy I randomly bought a big chunk of Florin a while ago. I wasn't sure why but it seemed a good buy at the time. It had spiked a few times, double and even triple it's regular value so I saw potential. Now with Alexandria on the cards my bag is looking more and more golden. I wonder what will happen to the price. People are saying 1000 sats soon, and it will just go up after that. Word is spreading now about Alexandria after the YouTube video. If we look at the analogous Vtorrent coin it's really skyrocketed the last few weeks, and seems to be a similar project, albeit not as user friendly and not as technically advanced as Alexandria. So I'm continuing to buy florin while it's still under 1000.

it's clear that if Alexandria becomes the next big thing, since BitTorrent, Netflix or YouTube, and everyone is using Florin in the app, just a handful of florin becomes extremely valuable. Indeed one of the most impressive and undervalued crypto coins maybe ever.

Beta testing for Alexandria is coming soon, exciting times we live in!

For the benefit of anyone stumbling onto this thread.
1) The chart is meaningless. Florincoin has always been aggressively traded and the recent spike doesn't reflect anything natural.
2) But.... florincoin is a good long term coin. Data coins will probably do well and florin has a lot of positives.
3) But... the 'block tech' thing looks dubious. It does not look like a project with real commercial possibilities. Rather it looks like part of a florin pump.
4) But... the basic idea behind block tech, although probably not commercially viable is one of the reasons data coins will do well. And if block tech is successful it's long term value will not be 'block tech', rather it will be 'florincoin'.

So to sum up, block tech looks like a florin pump, but it is likely, based on florin's trading history, that the 'pump, may actually be the latter stages of someone having cornered the florincoin market. The block tech people may have bought enough florincoin that they can stabilize the price at any level simply by buying the coins that are being mined.

If that is the case then their plan is probably to continue holding until the cryptomarket recovers. So the last several weeks were the beginning of a 'pump' that won,t have a dump until the market is strong enough to absorb the coins they have at a higher price.

A person should ignore all the hype. Florincoin is an okay coin that has possibilities but is being pumped based on something that is questionable.

If block tech does the work of making florin a genuine data coin used to hold meaningful information, torrent links or whatever, and if the timing is early enough and the marketing is done well then florin could do quite well. Data coins are a wide open field ready for a lot of projects.

But if block tech cashes out without developing the coin and using the data feature then florin will flounder.

I disagree with this, although I can understand why you might think it without hands-on access to what Devon and BlockTech are working on.  However, Alexandria is a real thing (I'm in the alpha) and it is extremely cool.

It's been in development for the better part of a year and has huge potential for content publishers and consumers alike.  The beta starts pretty soon so you'll be able to check it out yourself; I'll also be recording video tutorials on using it once it's in a more finalized form. I'm only doing that because the project itself has value.

It's not about being "extremely cool".

The Pirate Bay Business Model worked for about 10 years (anon, ad supported, free torrents)...
And had about 50,000,000 unique visitors/month until Hollywood lawyers broke it up.

Alexandria uses almost the exact opposite Business Model (pay-as-you-go, minimal anon, your mom's Pirate Bay)...
As currently described, the most likely result = Hollywood will ruthlessly shut it down.

It's been in development for the better part of a year and has huge potential for content publishers and consumers alike.  The beta starts pretty soon so you'll be able to check it out yourself; I'll also be recording video tutorials on using it once it's in a more finalized form. I'm only doing that because the project itself has value. 

It's not about being "extremely cool".

The Pirate Bay Business Model worked for about 10 years (anon, ad supported, free torrents)...
And had about 50,000,000 unique visitors/month until Hollywood lawyers broke it up.

Alexandria uses almost the exact opposite Business Model (pay-as-you-go, minimal anon, your mom's Pirate Bay)...
As currently described, the most likely result = Hollywood will ruthlessly shut it down.

Who would they shut down?

Post by: blocktechceo on May 05, 2015, 01:15:23 AM

For the benefit of anyone stumbling onto this thread...
2) But.... florincoin is a good long term coin. Data coins will probably do well and florin has a lot of positives.

I agree with this.

3) But... the 'block tech' thing looks dubious. It does not look like a project with real commercial possibilities. Rather it looks like part of a florin pump.

I disagree with this, although I can understand why you might think it without hands-on access to what Devon and BlockTech are working on.  However, Alexandria is a real thing (I'm in the alpha) and it is extremely cool.

It's been in development for the better part of a year and has huge potential for content publishers and consumers alike.  The beta starts pretty soon so you'll be able to check it out yourself; I'll also be recording video tutorials on using it once it's in a more finalized form. I'm only doing that because the project itself has value. 

It's not about being "extremely cool".

The Pirate Bay Business Model worked for about 10 years (anon, ad supported, free torrents)...
And had about 50,000,000 unique visitors/month until Hollywood lawyers broke it up.

Alexandria uses almost the exact opposite Business Model (pay-as-you-go, minimal anon, your mom's Pirate Bay)...
As currently described, the most likely result = Hollywood will ruthlessly shut it down.

Hi there - thanks for sharing your concerns about the project - they're quite valid, so I'm happy to describe what we're thinking as far as how to go about addressing them :)

For one thing, as eXSn pointed out, there's no way for hollywood to ruthlessly shut this down. As a result of its decentralized nature (and very much by design, in order to truly embrace the idea of 'freedom of speech protected by code'), there is no central, controllable entity that could be shut down in order to destroy Alexandria. Media submissions themselves live in a DHT, hosted on multiple computers around the world, and the references/links that Alexandria uses to index them is a blockchain, again, hosted on multiple computers around the world.

Also, Alexandria is actually being designed so that it can be an attractive distribution mechanism for Hollywood itself (a bit down the road). You'll have to stay tuned at blocktech.com for a more detailed explanation of how we're doing so, but we have a process that ensures that certain content types (primarily feature films and music albums) require an extra step of authentication before they will actually show up in the Alexandria browser - basically a series of checks that allow a machine to verify, with reasonable accuracy, that someone who is attached to the credits of a piece of art has publicly demonstrated their approval for said piece of art to be distributed through Alexandria. Because its a check that is done at the time that a user browses across the piece of media, it is revokable at any time, so it makes temporarily delisting/hiding a piece of media extremely easy for its creator.

We aren't building Alexandria to be a competitor with PopcornTime - PCT does what it does quite well and has 10m happy daily users - we're building it to give artists of all kinds, from independent filmmakers to mainstream musicians, the ability to harness the highly efficient P2P technology that gives pirates completely free file distribution, but in a way that puts them directly in the drivers seat. Our first target artists are Youtubers/Soundcloud-podcasters - the content creators who are currently reliant entirely on ads. As more mainstream content creators see how well its working out for the short video/podcast crowd, we think filmmakers and musicians will start to dip their toes in the water.

How FlorinCoin(FLO) Will Replace The Pirate Bay And All Other Torrent Sites Forever

thebitcoinchannel.com / By Admin / 5-4-2015

Many believe that Satoshi was the father of all that we now know as Bitcoin, and with good reason.  But long before Satoshi arrived on the scene, BitTorrent had changed the world by introducing a protocol for peer-to-peer file sharing.  TPTB immediately pronounced anathema on the new technology, as it provided a way for every ordinary person to share files with every other person.

But reality applies to ordinary joes as well as to tin pot dictators.  File sharing could not, and cannot be stopped.  The only way to slow it down was to ban the tracker sites or put the proprietors in jail.  Fortunately for lovers of free speech and communication, message based cryto-currencies have now provided the answer:  a decentralized, peer to peer database that can NEVER be shutdown.  I give you Alexandria Project and FlorinCoin:

Alexandria is a distributed library for sharing and preserving art, history and culture. Imagine a platform like Youtube, Soundcloud, or Netflix, but without any of the costly server or bandwidth overhead. Users can self-publish anything, including videos, music, books, 3D printable, recipes, and more. Content creators have complete control over how their work is published and will be able to choose from several different monetization options.

How FlorinCoin(FLO) Will Replace The Pirate Bay And All Other Torrent Sites Forever
...
Not exactly the context I'd like to see Florincoin introduced.

Every version of Alexandria that I support will include a filter to block unverified content from being distributed to your device. Keep in mind Alexandria is free software. You don't have to use the filter...  but you certainly should if you care about respecting and continuing to incentivize original content creators.

There is no way to prevent data from being put into the block chain, but preventing the spread of content that publishers clearly do not want in a DHT is possible. Those who agree will subscribe to the filters and disallow that content from being perpetuated by their Alexandria node. This is the best we can do to prevent publishers' work from being distributed without their consent.

"The main advantage of Alexandria over regular torrent sites, of course, is the absence of central servers, which means that the service cannot be shut down or blocked — as has happened with various torrent sites over and over again. As long as someone is mining Florincoin, Alexandria will continue to exist.

What do the FLO miners have to do with the shared media content?

I'm not meaning to fud Florin or anything but the way Blocktech spun things a few weeks back it seemed like Alexandria's release was right around the corner.

Instead we get a road chart begging the public for money to actually build the thing with releases in installments. I thought Blocktech was supposed to be an actual company with VC capital behind it?

Instead in the latest photos its a couple guys with a table and a projector in what looks to me like a boiler room, it just doesn't build confidence.

A pump and dump requires a dump.  Is Bitcoin a pump and dump?  If it is, then let me know when it gets back to a penny so I can buy more.

FLO miners, and everyone else running a full node, hold metadata and magnet links that point to the published media. Therefore Alexandria will perpetuate itself as a media publishing/sharing platform for artists and content creators even if Blocktech disappears.

Florincoin has been around for quite some time now, so it is hardly being "introduced".  Apple embracing deflation rather than fighting it was very wise.  Who was the highest grossing touring band of all time?  The Grateful Dead, who encouraged the recording of their shows and the free duplication of them:

Ten years ago this month, a music sector ravaged by Napster and largely ignorant of digital distribution found a savior of sorts in what was then called the iTunes Music Store. With its 99-cent unbundled songs, the service quickly became the only significant source for acquiring music legally online.

With iTunes, Apple had drawn the blueprint for distributing music, movies, books, and apps over the web. By supplying and tying together a music player, online store, and song-mangement software, Apple drastically simplified the entire music experience, defying the odds to build a music-retailing dynasty even as file sharing skyrocketed. A decade ago, Apple started to answer what would become an all-important question: how do you get consumers to pay for content again?

The media is distributed via bittorrent, so requires seeders to store and share media just as is the case with any torrent.

Alexandria is a real thing (I'm in the alpha) and it is extremely cool.

It's been in development for the better part of a year and has huge potential for content publishers and consumers alike.  The beta starts pretty soon so you'll be able to check it out yourself; I'll also be recording video tutorials on using it once it's in a more finalized form. I'm only doing that because the project itself has value. 

It's not about being "extremely cool".

Sure it is. You're just failing to understand why I described it as extremely cool. 


The Pirate Bay Business Model worked for about 10 years (anon, ad supported, free torrents)...
And had about 50,000,000 unique visitors/month until Hollywood lawyers broke it up.

Alexandria uses almost the exact opposite Business Model (pay-as-you-go, minimal anon, your mom's Pirate Bay)...
As currently described, the most likely result = Hollywood will ruthlessly shut it down.

The Pirate Bay is actually still running despite repeated attempts to shut it down. After 10 years. 

Alexandria is more decentralized than any website like TPB can be, and thus should be much harder to shut down.  It creates a way for publishers to monetize their content directly, not just a new platform for piracy. So it has the potential for Hollywood to benefit from it if they understand the futility of fighting it. 

It has the potential for musicians like my brother, as well as other types of artists, engineers, and more to have an income without being forced to use a system set up to benefit the recording industry and not the individual creators.

That is why I said it was extremely cool.

Hiya - to clear things up for you - Alexandria is in the hands of a few dozen alpha testers right now. The roadmap on our site is so that people can see what we have planned for Alexandria's development. Nope, we have no VC capital behind us, you're probably thinking of Blockchain.info, or Chain perhaps - this name space is getting a bit crowded ;) As such, many of the team members have other jobs to support themselves - the fund raise is to be able to let our developers put more dedicated time into the project to get it out the door sooner.

And I'm pretty sure the photos you're referring to are from the meetup we attended in San Francisco last week at the Founders Space incubator... perhaps it was a boiler room 50 years ago, but it's a pretty awesome accelerator space now ;)

I'm not sure what dump you are talking about.  I've been accumulating this coin since .0006 and still have not sold one.  I intend to accumulate millions more if I can manage to not put the price up too high on myself.  Long and strong!

Torrent and IT noob here. I still don`t get the main advantage Alexandria has over the existing solutions, but I am only an occasional user of the whole thing (i.e. the only way I know to handle it is to go to torrentz.eu, look for something, than click on a link and M-Torrent downloads it. That`s what a friend who knows about that stuff told me).

A lot of folks are calling this a better alternative to "the existing solutions" for Torrenting pirated content, because by replacing a website that can be shut down with a blockchain as the torrent index/repository, it is considerably more robust, but I want to be clear that this was not our actual goal - the purpose behind Alexandria is to use the P2P technology that piracy sites rely on for free wide distribution to enable artists to be in direct control of their works and how they are distributed and monetized. We're of course aware that pirates will find the platform to be an attractive solution to their biggest problems, and since there's no way we could prevent them from doing so without creating central points of failure w/in the system, we're "ok" with it, but we are taking steps to prevent those pirated works from actually showing up for end users in the Alexandria browser. As Joey (metacoin) pointed out, this will use a filter system that users can opt out of, because otherwise it would be a pretty dramatic example of 3rd party censorship, but we think it strikes a strong balance of making the core technology available in a really supportive way to the average end user while preventing it from being blatantly abused by piracy rings.

So, to more simply answer your question, the actual "existing solutions" this is attempting to better would be YouTube, Spotify, Soundcloud or iTunes, not thepiratebay or PopcornTime, and we think it offers many significant advantages over them (namely that it offers matching feature sets to those platforms, is uncensorable, has incredibly low distribution costs and lets artists monetize their works directly without any expensive middle-men).

There are a lot of little problems with your 'project'.

You started the project by buying up a lot of Florincoin, in fact a considerable percentage of all the Florincoin that exist.

Then suddenly it was listed on bittrex and poloniex. I assume you or someone associated paid for that listing. Is that correct?

And so on.

Florincoin is a good long term coin. There is no doubt that when the crypto market recovers it will do well.

But the blocktech project seems to be a simple pump built around an obvious developing trend in crypto, adding on data or block chain features.

If your intent had really been to do the project as described for its own sake you would have done it.

But instead you approach it as a pure marketing scheme. All glitz but little substance. My guess is that a person will be able to get a few days notice of an actual release of anything by watching the trading.

Again, florin is a good coin. It will do well. You probably hold 40% to 80% of the florin that exist so you will make money on it. But the project you describe will only be successful when it is released with no fake 'xyzceo' bullshit.

A lot of data coins are going to have a lot of stuff, and many of them will do well. Florin is one of those. In the short term florin will probably do well because you and your associates bought up so many coins. There aren't a lot of sellers since you have the coins. But in the long term it's prospects aren't helped by crude pumps. Very disappointing that the op was changed to mention block tech. It doesn't reflect well on the Dev.

I still have a lot of Florincoin by the way, so I'm not fudding.

Actually, your primary assumptions are incorrect, so it sure feels fuddy to me ;)

No, we don't have 40%-80% of the florin out there - in fact Blocktech has less than 5%, and we got what we have almost entirely from mining. My guess as far as the reason that there aren't a lot of sellers is that the few folks who'd been accumulating it over the past year have their eye on this project right now. Obviously I wish we had a lot more of it, but we couldn't afford to spend the minor investments we did get over the past year on anything but development costs (servers, services, developers themselves, feeding them, office space for some time). Our intent really is the project as described, and we are in fact doing it - making something work does take time, so i'm not sure why you're so callously writing it off simply because it hasn't been released publicly yet.

Edit: Also, no, we did not pay for bittrex and polo listings. We emailed them to tell them about Alexandria and they were happy to list the coin.

Anyway, just felt the need to clear up that assumption since it was so far off the mark - no hard feelings tho, I can understand your general distrust of the XYZceo monikers ;)

Just an FYI,

The coin is advancing correctly from a technical perspective, i.e. higher lows and higher highs, but we do appear to be entering an area of large overhead resistance near .0018 LTC.  I would advise all the large holders, of whom I am one now also, to not be short sighted.  If you believe in this coin - hold it.  Trust me when I tell you that these coins can run farther than anyone ever imagined.  A 100 fold gain from here is not an outlandish proposition.  Please don't dump on every rise as we go up from here, as you will find it much more profitable to just let the coin run into new all time highs.  Thanks.

http://www.thebitcoinchannel.com/

P.S. Don't blame the guys from Blocktech or Alexandria Project for pumping this coin.  I can assure they are not.  I am accumulating this coin on a very long term basis because I believe in it and it's promise.  From the market testing I have performed so far, the interest in this coin is very strong and very legit.  If there is a dump to this pump it will not be me.

Not be unkind, but you seem to be a bit hard of hearing.  I gave you those links to show you that Bitcoin is still the same revolutionary technology, with the same promise, that it was back then in 2011.  FLO adds to it by providing an uncensorable peer to peer messaging/library concept.  Will FLO be the coin that lasts and makes this concept a reality?  I cannot say.  Just as I could not say back in 2011 that Bitcoin would be the one to succeed.  But I could tell you back then, and am telling you now, that these ideas will never go away from this point forward:  encrypted peer to peer money, and encrypted peer to peer libraries.

Not be unkind, but you seem to be a bit hard of hearing.  I gave you those links to show you that Bitcoin is still the same revolutionary technology, with the same promise, that it was back then in 2011.  FLO adds to it by providing an uncensorable peer to peer messaging/library concept.  Will FLO be the coin that lasts and makes this concept a reality?  I cannot say.  Just as I could not say back in 2011 that Bitcoin would be the one to succeed.  But I could tell you back then, and am telling you now, that these ideas will never go away from this point forward:  encrypted peer to peer money, and encrypted peer to peer libraries.

Not to be unkind, but I hear very well, you might have a hard time reading on the other hand. You just utter general stuff applicable to almost any Alt with no informational depth at all - again - and I am trying to make up my mind what to think of your posts, i.e. to take them serious or not. We are on BCT and not Yahoo Finance. You hardly need to convince anyone of "encrypted peer to peer money" here.

Alright.  Then let me try to be clearer.  The value of uncensorable peer to peer libraries is in my mind at least nearly as revolutionary and transformational as Bitcoin itself.  But back at the time I formed my channel and blog to promote Bitcoin virtually nobody believed it would succeed, and yes that included the majority here on this forum as well.  Why FLO?  Well, other coins can perform this function, but weren't designed to do so.  Why is BTC 61 times more valuable than LTC when they both do the same thing?  One of the reasons is because BTC was first.  Why does Ebay have virtually no competition to speak of?  Craigslist?  Angie's list? 

Because if FLO is the first coin to be used to incorporate this library concept successfully, why bother with another.  The fact that there are very serious people spending a tremendous amount of time doing exactly that tells me that this coin has the best chance of being first.  Bitcoin's move from 1 cent to 1200 was a 120 thousand fold move.  FLO moving 100 fold from here as the crypto markets resume their bull run would not be at all unprecented or even surprising for that matter.

Actually, your primary assumptions are incorrect, so it sure feels fuddy to me ;)

No, we don't have 40%-80% of the florin out there - in fact Blocktech has less than 5%, and we got what we have almost entirely from mining. My guess as far as the reason that there aren't a lot of sellers is that the few folks who'd been accumulating it over the past year have their eye on this project right now. Obviously I wish we had a lot more of it, but we couldn't afford to spend the minor investments we did get over the past year on anything but development costs (servers, services, developers themselves, feeding them, office space for some time). Our intent really is the project as described, and we are in fact doing it - making something work does take time, so i'm not sure why you're so callously writing it off simply because it hasn't been released publicly yet.

Edit: Also, no, we did not pay for bittrex and polo listings. We emailed them to tell them about Alexandria and they were happy to list the coin.

Anyway, just felt the need to clear up that assumption since it was so far off the mark - no hard feelings tho, I can understand your general distrust of the XYZceo monikers ;)

D

I've been trading flo for a long time and obviously someone bought a huge amount in the several weeks before it was mentioned on this thread on March 11, 2015 or so. Every step you have taken so far is consistent with a pump, and not consistent with a serious project.

Again, I have a bunch of florin long term, but am simply offering caution to people buying at this level. Remember, 4 months ago the price was around 1/20 of what it is now. Someone bought up huge amounts. Then the blocktech announcement.

It's a good coin but until the crypto markets recover in general a person should be cautious since this coin has increased a couple thousand percent already on this pump.

#######

Just an FYI,

The coin is advancing correctly from a technical perspective, i.e. higher lows and higher highs, but we do appear to be entering an area of large overhead resistance near .0018 LTC.  I would advise all the large holders, of whom I am one now also, to not be short sighted.  If you believe in this coin - hold it.  Trust me when I tell you that these coins can run farther than anyone ever imagined.  A 100 fold gain from here is not an outlandish proposition.  Please don't dump on every rise as we go up from here, as you will find it much more profitable to just let the coin run into new all time highs.  Thanks.

http://www.thebitcoinchannel.com/

P.S. Don't blame the guys from Blocktech or Alexandria Project for pumping this coin.  I can assure they are not.  I am accumulating this coin on a very long term basis because I believe in it and it's promise.  From the market testing I have performed so far, the interest in this coin is very strong and very legit.  If there is a dump to this pump it will not be me.

That's almost funny except that there are probably people who will believe you.

The technicals on this coin right now are abysmal. Go to bittrex and select the maximum time period. Like a lot of pump coins it looks like someone tried to use fake volume to create a technical pattern. It's laughable.

The coin has been going up because some person bought a huge amount and the actual float right now is small. That person or group has to keep supporting the price or they will lose their investment.

Again, it's a fine coin I've owned for a long time but the current stuff going on is not helping it long term.

What you are referring to is a "wash sale" which is traditionally used for other purposes.  Creating volume by buying and selling to yourself may attract some attention to a market, say from those who watch for that sort of thing, but most people look for heavy volume along with directional price movement which indicates the market is either under accumulation or distribution.  This coin is under accumulation.

Livermore:

"A stock which it is desired to distribute should be manipulated to the highest possible
point and then sold. I repeat this both because it is fundamental and because the public
apparently believes that the selling is all done at the top. Sometimes a stock gets
waterlogged, as it were; it doesn't go up. That is the time to sell. The price naturally will
go down on your selling rather further than you wish, but you can generally nurse it
back. As long as a stock that I am manipulating goes up on my buying I know I am all
hunky, and if need be I buy it with confidence and use my own money without fear
precisely as I would any other stock that acts the same way. It is the line of least
resistance. You remember my trading theories about that line, don't you? Well, when the
price line of least resistance is established I follow it, not because I am manipulating that
particular stock at that particular moment but because I am a stock operator at all times.

When my buying does not put the stock up I stop buying and then proceed to sell it
down; and that also is exactly what I would do with that same stock if I did not happen
to be manipulating it. The principal marketing of the stock, as you know, is done on the
way down. It is perfectly astonishing how much stock a man can get rid of on a decline.
I repeat that at no time during the manipulation do I forget to be a stock trader. My
problems as a manipulator, after all, are the same that confront me as an operator. All
manipulation comes to an end when the manipulator cannot make a stock do what he
wants it to do. When the stock you are manipulating doesn't act as it should, quit. Don't
argue with the tape. Do not seek to lure the profit back. Quit while the quitting is good
and cheap."

Long and Strong

There are so many problems with your comments. I'll only address the last part of your quote.

The difference between florincoin and, for example, IBM shares, is that a few months ago flo had a market cap around $5,000. One or more aggressive traders were squeezing coins, putting up fake sell walls etc and trying to accumulate as many coins as possible with the fake sell walls etc. Then Alexandria popped up "Hi, I'm the CEO of a company and we are going to use florin for something". So far a lot of hype, a lot of pump, an idea that is sort of okay but has little commercial potential.


Title: Re: [ANN][FLO] Florin | The original tx msg coin | Blocktech Project Alexandria
Post by: coinxcoin on May 17, 2015, 08:12:24 PM

I've been trading flo for a long time and obviously someone bought a huge amount in the several weeks before it was mentioned on this thread on March 11, 2015 or so. Every step you have taken so far is consistent with a pump, and not consistent with a serious project.




Hey man, haven't followed the whole discussion - but for what it's worth, I received a copy of an alpha client for  Alexandria which does actually function, and tracking its network connections - it aims to do what it says and no shenanigans noticed. One of the primary devs has also livestreamed himself coding the project if you want to actually see work being done and get your eyes on some code.

I don't disagree with your points about insider trading - every crypto project will do that. You really think every altcoin needs a new codebase to do their project? The primary reason for launching a new coin is to give yourself as much manipulation potential as possible, not for some new ideal or platform. Maybe 1 out of 100  are legitimately trying to build something on top of the profit potential. All of this is a profit game and until regulation/consequences convince people to not pump/insider trade/build scamcoins, we can only accept it as part of the landscape. That being said - even if Blocktech does own a huge percentage of FLO (or more likely unnamed, officially unaffiliated partner(s) hold it) and this project is all about cashing in on that - the project IS real. I've seen it. I can send you the copy of Alexandria I have if you want (though it may be outdated at this point, I haven't been following so I'm not sure if a newer client is around). Pretty sure it's supposed to be privileged access, and I'm certainly no insider, but if you hang in crypto IRC's this thing was making the rounds.

Again, it's entirely possible and I'd say even basically certain Alexandria is primarily to make them money - but that doesn't mean Alexandria isn't real. That's more than most projects can boast/pump with - at least this manipulation is built on something tangible. If they wanted a fast pump cash-in and escape, they'dve made their own coin. At the very least Blocktech is very public, we know they're doing real work, and we know they didn't have the manipulation/scam potential of launching a fresh coin themselves so we know they're on the hook to WORK to make this profit happen.

I mean, that really leaves us with the conclusion that they're working on a project to get paid from their investments and time spent. There may be a lot more curtains around here, but uh, I feel like Alexandria is about as legit as you get around altcoin projects. Insider trading is a wash because it happens on every coin, every project, every group in crypto. To be expected.

Certainly people need to make money.

When looking at a project like this, one of the most important questions is "Which came first, the idea for the project, or the idea to pump a coin?".

Everything indicates that this is a cheap pump and the so called "block tech" is just the "new idea" they came up with to hang the pump on.

It isn't a revolutionary idea. It isn't even that useful an idea. A person would need to invest a lot of money in marketing to make it sort of work, and even then it wouldn't be likely sustainable for long.

Florin is a coin I've owned for a while. Many coins have cheap pumps associated with them. Usually the devs will step back and not promote pumps. It concerns me that the flo Dev is cooperating with the pump.

Blocktech is a mediocre project, at best, from what has been put out so far.

Your point that 'maybe 1 out of 100' new coin projects are trying to build something... is a bit off. Some projects ate 100% pump. Some are 100% substance. Most are a mix. Block tech looks to be mostly pump with a little cosmetic 'substance'.

My advice would be to make the supposed 'alpha client' public then solicit comments on features. The features and general outline that have been provided so far reflect very little of worth. The basic idea is one of countless ideas that anyone could come up with to develop a datacoin.

Post by: metacoin on May 17, 2015, 08:44:04 PM
Hmm, Florin existed for a year before Blocktech became a thing, and I've been working on the coin from about a month after its release.

It was my design choice to use Florincoin for Alexandria, amidst a ton of pressure to use Bitcoin and other projects (ethereum, etc).

So far I've been happy with the results. Florincoin's properties make it perfectly suited for a project like this.

I've been posting about Alexandria for months now, here and on twitter, probably ~5-6 months before Devon even made his blocktechceo forum account and started posting in this thread. We had a huge presentation in Vegas (Inside Bitcoins, October 2014). It's been in the news. It was written about in a block chain technology book (http://www.amazon.com/Blockchain-Blueprint-Economy-Melanie-Swan-ebook/dp/B00SNS9JLW).


re: "Alexandria isn't such a great idea" -- to be honest most ideas and apps aren't breathtaking on paper. Twitter and snapchat are great examples of this. Execution and network effect play a big role in deciding how long anything stays relevant. The features we've implemented with ferross's webtorrent and the protocol structure that powers alexandria (you can see it in the block chain) are very cool, at least in my opinion.

As far as releasing the alpha client goes, I don't really care if someone posts the binaries here, but it's not doing us any favors. It's too early in the software's lifecycle to reach a wide audience. If you're in the alpha group, you're already going into it with the mindset that the software is not released yet; that message could be lost to users who happen to stumble upon it without context.

Also ISOHunt has $100,000 bounty on development of a truly decentralized, unkillable torrent service called OpenBay. So while this project isn't following the guidelines of that project (working directly on OpenBay), the idea is not exactly worthless. ;)

You mean

Quote from the latter "Isohunt team is closing down the Openbay project support and the competition itself because of the very low activity on the project. We’ve got hold of the developers that took part in the competition and offered them a long-term cooperation.
We are very disappointed that your activity lowered to such a level that even a 50 000$ reward couldn’t motivate you."

Again, there are lots of huge opportunities with datacoins. Some ideas people will come up with are likely to succeed, others not. Even if this were one of the better possible datacoin ideas, which it probably is not, the pumpiness of the project puts a person off.

I support free sharing and so on, so if the project is serious then I'd support it. Comparing it to twitter is a stretch. You and others talk about your project.

It looks exactly like a pump built around a coin that has been thoroughly bought up by the pumpers. Please describe exactly what the project is expected to do, in less than 200 words, if that isn't too much to ask.

If anyone wants to join the slack to contribute to development, PM blocktechceo or me with your email and we can add you to the Alexandria slack discussion. You'll also be able to download the alpha releases.

The code is not readable in the format OBS outputs to livecoding.tv :(. I may try again on twitch.tv or another streaming service or with another local client (though OBS seems to be the best by far).

I could always try developing on my Windows machine, OBS works fine there...

Everything I've seen you say about Alexandria seems to be based on the idea that its purpose is to do something like replace the Pirate Bay. It can be used that way, but that's more of a "bonus feature" than the intended use case.  Here's a new video interview that might help you understand it better:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzG7i-eThnw

I've been aware of the project for something like a year now, and I personally accumulated FLO through both mining and buying it up in small amounts gradually over the last 10-12 months.  I did this because I saw the potential in the project for guarding against censorship and rewriting of history, as well as the potential for content producers (like myself as an educator, or like my brother who is a musician) to publish and monetize their content directly to an audience.

I'm not the only person who did this.  

I also know that a lot of people in the #Coinmarkets IRC channel bought up a ton of it right before it went onto Bittrex, and a bunch who grabbed it right afterwards. So that may account for what you're interpreting as the devs trying to engineer a pump.  

The project is not a finished product yet, but it is a real thing; I was invited into the private alpha a few weeks ago and have used it and have it installed on the computer I'm typing this on.

The trading for quite some time involved someone putting up heavy sell walls to squeeze others into selling. When a person would buy into one of the walls then the higher ones would disappear. So it was only one person buying in quantity for quite a while, or a group of people acting together. Not a bunch of independent buyers. I won't push the issue.

If this is just a florin pump, and that is what it appears to be, my advice would be to drop it now and find a more promising application to integrate into the coin now before data coins proliferate. A lot of high powered genuine innovations are going to come into data coins eventually. Coins that get sidetracked into pumps will be left in the dust.

Alexandria project needs to either be explained better, if there is something being misunderstood, or it should be minimized. I watched about half the video until the player crashed and the guys seem mostly sincere but there is no substance to the project they describe. Some vague platitudes but no actual original ideas.

You are not able to substantively answer serious questions, so you try to distract people by pointing out that you have more posts than me? Seriously? Something is very not right here.

Can you summarize what Alexandria offers in a short paragraph? I've read a bunch of interviews, watched a bit of video, researched a bit and it doesn't actually seem to have anything real except for using phrases like "free speech" and so on.

Again, can you summarize it in a short paragraph without hype.

See post from dev.  You could ask for access and answer your own questions.  Then again, if I was the dev, I'm not sure I'd give access to someone who seems unable to research the available info and come to their own conclusion.  Pointing out potential problems is not the issue.  The issue is that you do not seem like a person interested in solutions or even doing your own research.  If you are unwilling or unable to do your own detailed research then why should you expect someone else to be obligated to do that for you?

If anyone wants to join the slack to contribute to development, PM blocktechceo or me with your email and we can add you to the Alexandria slack discussion. You'll also be able to download the alpha releases.

You are not able to substantively answer serious questions, so you try to distract people by pointing out that you have more posts than me? Seriously? Something is very not right here.

Can you summarize what Alexandria offers in a short paragraph? I've read a bunch of interviews, watched a bit of video, researched a bit and it doesn't actually seem to have anything real except for using phrases like "free speech" and so on.

Again, can you summarize it in a short paragraph without hype.

You have 14 posts total, 10 of which are in this thread repeating the same thing. That is what's being pointed out.

Alexandria allows for direct publishing of media to an audience without censorship through DMCA takedown or beause the company in control of the platform dislikes the content. It gives the potential for direct revenue for content creators in an environment that has made it increasingly difficult for musicians and other creative people to make money from their work. It allows for the archiving of information in a decentralized fashion to prevent "data loss" like the original Library of Alexandria. 

You have been given multiple explanations and links to more info. The potential seems obvious to me, and has for the better part of a year. If you don't get it, you don't get it.

Okay, now there are two fairly consistent descriptions, yours and the one by cryptolemaik that follows yours. I've followed links, watched videos, read interviews etc and the 'project' seems to change dramatically.

If you are seriously going to attach florin to a DMCA challenge then you are going to destroy florin. That is obvious.

So at this point it looks like the purpose of Alexandria is to ... ? ? ? ? Give the feds an opportunity to show that they can shut down a coin? ? ?  If the florin network is facilitating DMCA violations then anyone using florin runs the risk of criminal charges?

Why not just modify something like bearshare and add a tipping app? What advantage is there in using a block chain and forcing a massive download? It looks like the only reason it is being 'built around florin' is to pump florin.

As for "Archiving information in a decentralized fashion"... Why? ? ? ? I saw the example about, for example, keeping a record of global warming, There are like 20 million servers that are plugged with this kind of information. You are saying that if there was some question about the veracity of information stored by major organizations then they could go to "the Alexandria project" and it would have reliable information because.... why? ? ? ? ? ? ?

"Like the original library at Alexandria" is funny. Could you please explain the similarity?

This all looks still like a massive mound of shit. But I still have quite a few FLO so maybe I'll ignore it until I sell.

Hi CoinXCoin - I wanted to respond a couple days ago, but, ya know... couldn't ;) Anyway, I can't help but ignore the more trolly parts of your questions that have been asked and answered multiple times, but I'm happy to address a few that I guess we haven't really answered well enough yet.

No, I think you're really misreading things here. The purpose of Alexandria is to take advantage of a combination of P2P technologies to give content creators a platform to permissionlessly publish and distribute their work in a un-censorable and permanent way, in which they can monetize directly from their audiences. Because we have zero interest in making it a haven of piracy, our front end requires that the types of media which are most often pirated have been individually authorized by some individual in a position to do so. Publishing a movie requires providing a 'chain-of-authorization' from the IMDBid of the movie to a social media post from someone in it's production credits. Likewise with Music and eventually Shows when we can enroll a few internet tv shows to try the platform out. Videos, Podcasts and other media types require no authorization to be provided, but we plan to combat piracy in these media types through two channels: 1) a clear warning to publishers that interested parties could potentially track their submissions to their IP address and pursue them with DMCA violations, and 2) a list of content ids that we publish to the blockchain as a "piracy list" - all users on our Alexandria web portal will be forced to consider this filter list, so pirated content will not show up for them. Users of the Alexandria client will be auto-subscribed to this list to protect them from unintentionally downloading and sharing pirated media, but since this is open-source software in which forced-rules are just reasons to fork the app and fracture the user base, it really makes the most sense for us to let users of the client disable the filter if they chose (and again have to dismiss a disclosure message about why it would be a bad idea to support pirated content on the platform themselves). This is the route we need to travel, because in order for Alexandria to work as a permission-less publishing platform, there is simply no way to actually block someone from choosing to publish pirated content (since someone truly determined could just copy the format of the messages Alexandria uses to publish on the Florincoin blockchain), and it would be a major flaw if we did no allow users to chose to ignore our filter list, as doing so would make us a very clear central point of failure, which interested parties could exploit to crowbar-engineer certain content they don't like into those mandatory filter lists - by turning it on by default but letting users turn it off if they chose, there would be no significant value in anyone else taking control of our filter lists.

Why not just modify something like bearshare and add a tipping app? What advantage is there in using a block chain and forcing a massive download? It looks like the only reason it is being 'built around florin' is to pump florin.

Because the point was to decentralize all of the parts of a digital content library/market: publishing (the announcing of a piece of media and how to find it), distribution (file storage and sharing) and payments. Distribution is handled through the IPFS DHT, publishing (and commenting) is handled with Florincoin, and payments are handled with Florincoin, Bitcoin and whatever other coins publishers ask to get tipped in. I'm not sure what you are referring to by "forcing a massive download" - if you mean that you are assuming the media file is stored in the Florincoin blockchain, it's not, it is distributed via the IPFS network and only the IPFS id (a 46-character hash) and the piece of media's descriptive info get stored in the blockchain. If you mean that we're forcing the user to download the florincoin blockchain, that's also incorrect. If the user wants to use the app through an entirely decentralized pipeline, it is true that they'll have to have a local copy of the blockchain, as they'd also need a local copy of the Bitcoin blockchain if they want to use it without relying on any 3rd parties at all. But for the sake of convenience and letting people have access to the library through a web browser, we will be running a gateway at http://alexandria.media which returns the same API responses to a users front end that a local wallet would provide, so if they don't want to download and sync the blockchain, they can just have their local client point to our gateway. We're working on a 'keys-only' web-wallet, so that users can publish and comment through the gateway as well, but it's not a super high priority at the moment.

As for "Archiving information in a decentralized fashion"... Why? ? ? ? I saw the example about, for example, keeping a record of global warming, There are like 20 million servers that are plugged with this kind of information. You are saying that if there was some question about the veracity of information stored by major organizations then they could go to "the Alexandria project" and it would have reliable information because.... why? ? ? ? ? ? ?

In an archiving sense, the function that Alexandria can provide is to show a proof of publishing with a timestamp - it could be used for tweets, documents, news reports, etc - anything in which there is possible value in being able to point back to prove something was said at a certain time in a certain way at some specific time in the past. Your question about why anyone would trust that "the Alexandria project" would have "reliable information" suggests that you think we would be relying on our reputation for anyone to trust the information, but in fact it is the indelible and permanent nature of the record (I'll go out on a limb and assume that you understand that one of the most basic functions of a blockchain is that past entries in its ledger can't be changed after the fact) that gives it 'trustworthiness' and value. How much value it has will be entirely up to the people who chose to use it. It sounds like you don't think you'll be one of them, which is fine of course ;)

This function was born from the idea of capturing and storing everything mentioned on a social media platform about a given topic so that the 'immediate records of history' can be preserved in a decentralized and non-destroyable way for future use. Twitter is a great platform for sharing micro-news about things that interest you, and its a great way to get a sense of what other people around the world are saying about various topics right now - but if I wanted to try to browse and understand what kinds of things were being said about something by the whole of twitter at some past time period, this gets much more challenging, especially since tweets can be deleted. Like the media publishing aspect of Alexandria, this functionality relies on a blockchain for publishing and a DHT for distribution of actual content - in this case, the content is the raw archives of captured tweets and the publish message points to the archive on the DHT and includes plain-text summary information about the archive to make indexing, browsing and searching the data faster. The idea is to be able to store archives about the world scraped from 'the public forums' of our time.

"Like the original library at Alexandria" is funny. Could you please explain the similarity?

We chose the name as an homage to the ancient library of Alexandria, because it is known to most people for two reasons - 1) it was a great historical example of a monumental effort to collect as much recorded knowledge and history as possible for the benefit of its people and future generations and 2) most of its contents were unfortunately destroyed, a failure made possible by the fact that it was centralized.

This all looks still like a massive mound of shit. But I still have quite a few FLO so maybe I'll ignore it until I sell.

Sorry you're not a fan of the project - to be honest, you've actually been pretty rude, but I must admit I don't spend much time in the BCT forums myself, so I guess I'm not too desensitized to coin trolls yet ;)  But, hopefully my answers can be of value to others who are a bit more open minded about new things. Have a great day, and enjoy your FLO.

Have you ever wanted to view the historical hashrate, market data, or connection count of Litecoin, Dogecoin, Myriad, or another coin that doesn't have this data widely published? It's important for us to record this information in some form. Analyzing properties of many different coins will result in a better understanding of the effect of difficulty on volume and exchange rate, for example.

So here's the beginning (maybe version 0.05) of the first plugin for Alexandria:

https://github.com/metacoin/flo-market-data

This market data program will collect info from Cryptsy, Poloniex, and Bittrex and store it in a local SQLite database. It'll also create an HTTP API to interface with other programs, such as the main alexandria process. Soon, alexandria will have the capability of communicating with this plugin (and many more!) to create archives of this important data that users voluntarily store in the block chain.

With plugins like this, Florin can contribute to keeping history honest.

Just an FYI.  I still like this coin a lot.  I grabbed a bit of BLK many days ago due to the chart and made an easy triple.  Those profit coins I'm taking back here.  I'm happy to have 2 percent, but would be delighted to have 5 or 10.  Yes I believe.  So drop your asks and lower your bids - I'll be happy to take them all.  No, I've never sold one FLO :-)

That data belongs to the exchanges that provide it (I'm sure that's made clear in their Terms of Service)...
Real world exchanges are just as obsessive as Hollywood in terms of owning their content...
So the first plug-in for Alexandria is all about pirating financial data.

But not to get side-tracked... the Dev really should adapt his last post for his web site...
As opposed to making vague statements like "imagine a world with fairies and unicorns".

Also, the Dev appears to be asking for donations to build this thing...
Should this project not be structured as an investment in some way?

It's possible that some people may think pay-as-you-go for "long tail" torrent content is a good long-term investment...
So why have you structured this as a "charity" with your group as the beneficiary? Or is it all an elaborate pump for FLO?

I'm not sure how archiving a public API is equivalent to piracy. Nevertheless, I'll send the exchanges each an email and ask them if they feel strongly one way or another about volunteers backing up their historical API data in the block chain. I'm glad you brought this up, because it's possible they're not OK with it, but I suspect it'll be cool.

If you're talking about my description of the flo-market-data project, I described a problem I've had several times before and created a solution for it. It's not an imaginary solution either, you can read the code yourself!

We're asking for donations because it isn't ready to be pitched as an investment at the moment. We are working on some things that we believe may make it an investable thing, and if we do, we'll let users who have donated know that they are eligible for a cut, and specifically announce the opportunity. Since that isn't in place yet, and we were in need of some financial support while we were finishing the beta, we made the request.

I'm done repeatedly defending that this project is not just some "elaborate pump for FLO" as a few folks like to call it. It will be released publicly soon enough, and you can make up your mind for yourself at that point. In the meanwhile, if people want to assume it is a pump, they're free to do so.

FLO is not integral to Alexandria... it can be replaced at any time with an anon coin or Gen 2.0 crypto-currency...
The 528 char tx payload is dwarfed by, for example, NXT pruneable tx storage and whatever else is out there in 2015...
In fact, the claim "cannot be taken down" is absurd if the system runs on a circa 2013 coin.

I was just pointing out some wild inconsistencies in Alexandria info... when everybody got hysterical and lost their cookies.

Full DMCA and government compliance is inconsistent with "no one can censor them"...
And the entire project comes to a dead stop upon legal action against the Devon Read group...
So, at best, you have obscure "long tail" content that hardly anyone is looking for... no Top 1000 torrents.

Regardless, there are variations of this project that may work very well long term (as explained above)...
But there is no way to invest directly in the project... therefore FLO = 1000% pump or a ultra-high risk speculation.

With it, you'll be able to explore the contents of the library, enjoy embedded content and send tips to publishers with Bitcoin! Just pick the appropriate build for your OS, right click and save-as to download it, unzip it, and open to enjoy the contents of the Decentralized Library of Alexandria.

Please note: VLC plugin is built into OSX client, but Windows and Linux users will need to install VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/)) on their computers before being able to enjoy streaming video or audio. This will be built into the browser for Win & Linux soon.

We want your feedback! Got bug reports? Feature requests? Helpful suggestions? Please visit our Github Issues page (https://github.com/dloa/alexandria-docs/issues (https://github.com/dloa/alexandria-docs/issues)) to submit them. Alexandria's known issues and version history can be found here: https://github.com/dloa/alexandria-docs/blob/master/version-notes-and-issues.md (https://github.com/dloa/alexandria-docs/blob/master/version-notes-and-issues.md).

http://gateway.ipfs.io/ipfs/QmTAW3V9sZnodwWu17GPTvMkeXoRSt6CzGtgyUBHX2bDxk/alexandria_beta_install_instructions.png

If you'd like to send comments with your tips, or trade some BTC for FLO through Alexandria's tradebot, you'll also need to install a Florincoin wallet. Links to download and install the wallet client for your OS can be found at www.florincoin.org (http://www.florincoin.org).

To publish artifacts to the library or to use Alexandria in a completely "serverless" way, you'll need to install some additional daemons and to do so, you'll need to join our alpha - just send metacoin or myself a PM to get an invite.
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and if you're interested in learning about how you can support Alexandria's continued development, please visit www.blocktech.com (http://www.blocktech.com)

you'll need the florincoin wallet installed, you'll need a florincoin.conf file in your florincoin folder (on mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Florincoin/) with the following content:

rpcuser=fill-in-a-username
rpcpassword=fill-in-a-password
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcallowip=192.168.*.*
rpcport=18322
server=1
daemon=1
txindex=1


please note: if you make this file with text-edit (on mac) it may try to make the filename florincoin.conf.txt - that won't work.

Anyway, once you have that set up, open and sync your wallet and then your Alexandria browser will let you log into your wallet and create new addresses (and send Tips over FLO that include comments, and use the trade-bot (the "buy more" button in the wallet))

Since Alexandria users don't download from a web server with known bandwidth limits, that's not really something that can be quantified very well - it will vary depending on what piece of media you're downloading and how many other users are currently seeding it.

http://gateway.ipfs.io/ipfs/QmUNrsYdFLfQxrgTdjV7wLYL8CLZWjJyhGWu9ZvRu7AJoT

Now my caveat is that right now the "it just works" version of the Alexandria browser defaults to "Gateways" so that users don't have to install all of the daemons necessary to run things in an entirely p2p way - so those users *would* in fact be using web servers for downloading, but since there will be many gateway options available and users will be able to switch between them in their preferences, it would again be pretty impossible to actually say what the dl or ul rate is for Alexandria in general.

(edit, added this) Oh, all that said - we've generally found that with ~10 or so seeders with a average speed internet connection, an HD movie or FLAC audio file can start streaming pretty much right away.

Cool, how about if I have a giga bit server that upload the movies, then other will streaming it online, is it make different than my home PC like 50mb/s ?
Or still calculate through the combine seed actual online at that time ?
This is very interested.
Is it RPi 2 seed vs PC seed ( p2p ) , any of those make different from streaming speed ?

These are good questions, thanks for reminding me to test Alexandria out on my RPi 2.

Bandwidth questions about streaming quality / seeding mechanics are not known to me at this time. Perhaps I can look deeper into the IPFS codebase to figure it out. (We've switched from BitTorrent to IPFS recently).

We've got one Alexandria node recording historical market data from Cryptsy, Bittrex, and Poloniex :)

http://florincoin.info/explorer/messages/

I'll offer 70,000 FLO for anyone who builds an open-source web application (javascript would be a good choice) that can take an array of these JSON strings and turn it into a nice looking graph (using d3 or highcharts or something similar).


Example JSON string:

Code:
{"alexandria-history-record-datapoint":{"title":"FloMarketData","address":"FF9r36Ua3Ds4itz29hzbfqjkMpoTZ8HEqT","timestamp":"1435242572","api":"http://colorcoin.org:41290/flo-market-data/v1/getAll","unixtime":1435242563,"cryptsy":"0.0865","poloniex":"0.2139","bittrex":"0.6996","daily-volume":"190266.31250000","weighted":"0.00000751","USD":"0.00185"},"signature":"H2N9+nFzO/p2FB7QbzuvcwFbJV88pI9ocZdZGAERIs2/OrK5RZ658BlAPLqmIjT22rBYSAhS19AJFRwCxVoN/B4="}

If you want to run your own market data indexing program, check out https://github.com/metacoin/flo-market-data -- the source code for the Alexandria node (the part that publishes to the blockchain) will be available soon.

Thanks for your contributions, Devon and skyangel  :)

I received a few PMs about this bounty so I'd like to post some clarification on what I'd like to see:


There are two types of historical JSON archives in the Florincoin blockchain right now - FLO trade data and Bitcoinaverage data.

The FLO trade data chart should be interactive, something like you'd see on blockchain.info, with a date range picker at the bottom and mouseover context cards.

https://blockchain.info/charts/market-price

However, unlike blockchain.info the chart should display additional information on mouseover:

  • Date
  • Cryptsy Price
  • Poloniex Price
  • Bittrex Price
  • Daily Volume
  • Weighted Price
  • FLO/USD


The Bitcoinaverage chart should be exactly the same, Y axis = last trade price and X axis = time. Mouseover should have the following additional information:

  • Date
  • Bid
  • Ask
  • Volume
  • 24h average
  • Last

If you want to really win the bounty, add a dropdown box to select the value for the Y axis as well as displaying the extra data points on mouseover.

Important: don't worry about sourcing the tx-comment JSON, you'll need to run a full node to have the blockchain indexed in a database for that. I already have this database on florincoin.info and the bounty is for providing front-end code, not another block explorer (though you're welcome to make one if you feel so inclined)! For research and development you can use some fake data, as long as it's formatted properly I should be able to plug in the historian data easily. Who knows, maybe I'll make an API for the block explorer this weekend just to make it easier for you guys ;)

Hi CoinXCoin - I wanted to respond a couple days ago, but, ya know... couldn't ;) Anyway, I can't help but ignore the more trolly parts of your questions that have been asked and answered multiple times, but I'm happy to address a few that I guess we haven't really answered well enough yet.

If you are seriously going to attach florin to a DMCA challenge then you are going to destroy florin. That is obvious.

So at this point it looks like the purpose of Alexandria is to ... ? ? ? ? Give the feds an opportunity to show that they can shut down a coin? ? ?  If the florin network is facilitating DMCA violations then anyone using florin runs the risk of criminal charges?

No, I think you're really misreading things here. The purpose of Alexandria is to take advantage of a combination of P2P technologies to give content creators a platform to permissionlessly publish and distribute their work in a un-censorable and permanent way, in which they can monetize directly from their audiences. Because we have zero interest in making it a haven of piracy, our front end requires that the types of media which are most often pirated have been individually authorized by some individual in a position to do so. Publishing a movie requires providing a 'chain-of-authorization' from the IMDBid of the movie to a social media post from someone in it's production credits. Likewise with Music and eventually Shows when we can enroll a few internet tv shows to try the platform out. Videos, Podcasts and other media types require no authorization to be provided, but we plan to combat piracy in these media types through two channels: 1) a clear warning to publishers that interested parties could potentially track their submissions to their IP address and pursue them with DMCA violations, and 2) a list of content ids that we publish to the blockchain as a "piracy list" - all users on our Alexandria web portal will be forced to consider this filter list, so pirated content will not show up for them. Users of the Alexandria client will be auto-subscribed to this list to protect them from unintentionally downloading and sharing pirated media, but since this is open-source software in which forced-rules are just reasons to fork the app and fracture the user base, it really makes the most sense for us to let users of the client disable the filter if they chose (and again have to dismiss a disclosure message about why it would be a bad idea to support pirated content on the platform themselves). This is the route we need to travel, because in order for Alexandria to work as a permission-less publishing platform, there is simply no way to actually block someone from choosing to publish pirated content (since someone truly determined could just copy the format of the messages Alexandria uses to publish on the Florincoin blockchain), and it would be a major flaw if we did no allow users to chose to ignore our filter list, as doing so would make us a very clear central point of failure, which interested parties could exploit to crowbar-engineer certain content they don't like into those mandatory filter lists - by turning it on by default but letting users turn it off if they chose, there would be no significant value in anyone else taking control of our filter lists.

Why not just modify something like bearshare and add a tipping app? What advantage is there in using a block chain and forcing a massive download? It looks like the only reason it is being 'built around florin' is to pump florin.

Because the point was to decentralize all of the parts of a digital content library/market: publishing (the announcing of a piece of media and how to find it), distribution (file storage and sharing) and payments. Distribution is handled through the IPFS DHT, publishing (and commenting) is handled with Florincoin, and payments are handled with Florincoin, Bitcoin and whatever other coins publishers ask to get tipped in. I'm not sure what you are referring to by "forcing a massive download" - if you mean that you are assuming the media file is stored in the Florincoin blockchain, it's not, it is distributed via the IPFS network and only the IPFS id (a 46-character hash) and the piece of media's descriptive info get stored in the blockchain. If you mean that we're forcing the user to download the florincoin blockchain, that's also incorrect. If the user wants to use the app through an entirely decentralized pipeline, it is true that they'll have to have a local copy of the blockchain, as they'd also need a local copy of the Bitcoin blockchain if they want to use it without relying on any 3rd parties at all. But for the sake of convenience and letting people have access to the library through a web browser, we will be running a gateway at http://alexandria.media which returns the same API responses to a users front end that a local wallet would provide, so if they don't want to download and sync the blockchain, they can just have their local client point to our gateway. We're working on a 'keys-only' web-wallet, so that users can publish and comment through the gateway as well, but it's not a super high priority at the moment.

As for "Archiving information in a decentralized fashion"... Why? ? ? ? I saw the example about, for example, keeping a record of global warming, There are like 20 million servers that are plugged with this kind of information. You are saying that if there was some question about the veracity of information stored by major organizations then they could go to "the Alexandria project" and it would have reliable information because.... why? ? ? ? ? ? ?

In an archiving sense, the function that Alexandria can provide is to show a proof of publishing with a timestamp - it could be used for tweets, documents, news reports, etc - anything in which there is possible value in being able to point back to prove something was said at a certain time in a certain way at some specific time in the past. Your question about why anyone would trust that "the Alexandria project" would have "reliable information" suggests that you think we would be relying on our reputation for anyone to trust the information, but in fact it is the indelible and permanent nature of the record (I'll go out on a limb and assume that you understand that one of the most basic functions of a blockchain is that past entries in its ledger can't be changed after the fact) that gives it 'trustworthiness' and value. How much value it has will be entirely up to the people who chose to use it. It sounds like you don't think you'll be one of them, which is fine of course ;)

This function was born from the idea of capturing and storing everything mentioned on a social media platform about a given topic so that the 'immediate records of history' can be preserved in a decentralized and non-destroyable way for future use. Twitter is a great platform for sharing micro-news about things that interest you, and its a great way to get a sense of what other people around the world are saying about various topics right now - but if I wanted to try to browse and understand what kinds of things were being said about something by the whole of twitter at some past time period, this gets much more challenging, especially since tweets can be deleted. Like the media publishing aspect of Alexandria, this functionality relies on a blockchain for publishing and a DHT for distribution of actual content - in this case, the content is the raw archives of captured tweets and the publish message points to the archive on the DHT and includes plain-text summary information about the archive to make indexing, browsing and searching the data faster. The idea is to be able to store archives about the world scraped from 'the public forums' of our time.

"Like the original library at Alexandria" is funny. Could you please explain the similarity?

We chose the name as an homage to the ancient library of Alexandria, because it is known to most people for two reasons - 1) it was a great historical example of a monumental effort to collect as much recorded knowledge and history as possible for the benefit of its people and future generations and 2) most of its contents were unfortunately destroyed, a failure made possible by the fact that it was centralized.

This all looks still like a massive mound of shit. But I still have quite a few FLO so maybe I'll ignore it until I sell.

Sorry you're not a fan of the project - to be honest, you've actually been pretty rude, but I must admit I don't spend much time in the BCT forums myself, so I guess I'm not too desensitized to coin trolls yet ;)  But, hopefully my answers can be of value to others who are a bit more open minded about new things. Have a great day, and enjoy your FLO.

The one positive thing is that at least you tried to directly answer the questions I thought were substantive. The project itself does not look like it provides too much imho but if you take even the worst idea and directly approach the real questions then you may end up with a real project.

In an archiving sense, the function that Alexandria can provide is to show a proof of publishing with a timestamp - it could be used for tweets, documents, news reports, etc - anything in which there is possible value in being able to point back to prove something was said at a certain time in a certain way at some specific time in the past. Your question about why anyone would trust that "the Alexandria project" would have "reliable information" suggests that you think we would be relying on our reputation for anyone to trust the information, but in fact it is the indelible and permanent nature of the record (I'll go out on a limb and assume that you understand that one of the most basic functions of a blockchain is that past entries in its ledger can't be changed after the fact) that gives it 'trustworthiness' and value. How much value it has will be entirely up to the people who chose to use it. It sounds like you don't think you'll be one of them, which is fine of course ;)

This function was born from the idea of capturing and storing everything mentioned on a social media platform about a given topic so that the 'immediate records of history' can be preserved in a decentralized and non-destroyable way for future use. Twitter is a great platform for sharing micro-news about things that interest you, and its a great way to get a sense of what other people around the world are saying about various topics right now - but if I wanted to try to browse and understand what kinds of things were being said about something by the whole of twitter at some past time period, this gets much more challenging, especially since tweets can be deleted. Like the media publishing aspect of Alexandria, this functionality relies on a blockchain for publishing and a DHT for distribution of actual content - in this case, the content is the raw archives of captured tweets and the publish message points to the archive on the DHT and includes plain-text summary information about the archive to make indexing, browsing and searching the data faster. The idea is to be able to store archives about the world scraped from 'the public forums' of our time.

"Like the original library at Alexandria" is funny. Could you please explain the similarity?

We chose the name as an homage to the ancient library of Alexandria, because it is known to most people for two reasons - 1) it was a great historical example of a monumental effort to collect as much recorded knowledge and history as possible for the benefit of its people and future generations and 2) most of its contents were unfortunately destroyed, a failure made possible by the fact that it was centralized.

This all looks still like a massive mound of shit. But I still have quite a few FLO so maybe I'll ignore it until I sell.

Sorry you're not a fan of the project - to be honest, you've actually been pretty rude, but I must admit I don't spend much time in the BCT forums myself, so I guess I'm not too desensitized to coin trolls yet ;)  But, hopefully my answers can be of value to others who are a bit more open minded about new things. Have a great day, and enjoy your FLO.

The one positive thing is that at least you tried to directly answer the questions I thought were substantive. The project itself does not look like it provides too much imho but if you take even the worst idea and directly approach the real questions then you may end up with a real project.

I've actually been warming up to this project...
Ever since I realized that there is a lot of niche content where DMCA is irrelevant...
I even watched your 30 minute presentation to that Bitcoin meetup...
(Please keep that 9/11 Truther nonsense to yourself, just say you were in the US Army and leave it at that).

If you even casually follow legal takedowns of pirating sites...
You would realize that publishing a "piracy list" that can be ignored by forks offers little protection...
Even if you manage to personally avoid prosecution (big if, Hollywood will sue you just to slow you down)...
$100,000 of scrypt hashing power from a rent-a-botnet will blow FLO to smithereens.

On the bright side...
Imagine a world where you streamed a hot cam girl to talk dirty to those horny guys are the Bitcoin meetup...
I really hope you are not a prude, because this project could be a real player in the lucrative adult cam niche...
Random financial data really has no value... but the world is full of weirdos spending big $$$ for kinky live interaction.

I very much approve Shapeshift.io and use them as often as I can because I believe their company will use the earnings to grow the industry (as they already have.)

Shapeshift can be used for a number of different things in the Altcoin world and I strongly suggest users/developers to check it out.

Florincoin is now added on Altquick (http://www.Altquick.com).

Altquick uses the Shapeshift API in order to allow users to buy Altcoins with cash deposits at a number of major banks around the world.

I've used their sister site www.Bitquick.co a fair bit for selling Bitcoins and their support team has always been wonderful to work with.  I'm sure Altquick will be no different.

I'll purchase some FLO this week using a bank deposit and let you guys/girls know how it goes!  

The only bummer is that as of right now they don't let people sell on Altquick like they do on Bitquick.  I've sent them an email asking to treat Altquick like Bitquick, but keep using the Shapeshift API in order to keep the books thick.  I strongly recommend others who maybe interested in selling FLO for cash now or in the future to shoot them a friendly email as well!

Thank you for visiting the Library of Congress Web site and for using the Ask A Librarian service.

The vast majority of the holdings of the Library of Congress are available only in their analog formats; and the most of that (and some of the digital resources) are indeed copyright protected.

Much of the digital (and converted-to-digital) materials presented on the Library's Web site, however, are in the public domain, either because their copyrights have expired, their rights were given to the public domain by their rights-holders, or they were "born" in the public domain, as is the case for work created by the U.S. federal government.  Rights status is one of the considerations when the Library's staff selects materials to be placed on its Web site.

In some cases, the Library makes copyright-protected images available on the Web in small (thumbnail) GIF image file formats for reference.  Where there is no copyright, there may still be other applicable rights, for example privacy rights.

This guide, written about prints and photographs collections at the Library, actually applies more widely. Perhaps you will find it helpful: http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/195_copr.html .  This page has links to rights statements for many of the Library's prints and photographs collections: http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/res/rights.html .

The metadata created by the Library of Congress about its collections is not copyright-protected; this applies to both materials available online and to information about the analog collections presented in the Library's online catalogs http://catalog.loc.gov/ .

At present, the Library has more than 50 million files presented on its Web site, representing a few hundred thousand items held by the Library.  These items include books and other printed materials, manuscripts, maps, music scores, sheet music, photographs, prints, audio files, some video materials, and three dimensional objects.  Some of these materials are also presented on YouTube www.youtube.com/user/LibraryOfCongress, iTunesU, and Flikr https://www.flickr.com/people/library_of_congress/?ytcheck=1 .  In addition, about 150,000 of the Library's books are presented in the online book collections of the Internet Archive Texts https://archive.org/details/library_of_congress , HathiTrust http://www.hathitrust.org/ , and Google Books http://books.google.com/ .

Parts of the Library's Web site are presented by the Internet Archive's Way Back Machine https://archive.org/web/ .

Anyone is free to re-purpose public domain materials.  Credit to the Library of Congress, or other source archive is appreciated.

I have forwarded your request and your contact information to the Library's Web Development team; if there is interested, someone there will be in touch with you directly.

Yours truly,

Perhaps we could invite some of the worlds major Library web development teams from around the world for the beta?

Thoughts on this?

They are backing off it slowly right now, so it doesn't appear they were trying to do it to jam the network up.

This would make it easy to manipulate the price of the coin for a certain period of time.  Perhaps make the price drop so one can buy at a good low.

We're using VLC but the setup process, for now, depends on your OS. If you're on Windows, just install VLC from the VLC homepage.

As we move towards a beta release this will be pre-packaged within the app. For tech support hop on the Alexandria slack #tech-support channel.

Nice to see that 30-40% "elaborate pump"...
There's been long stretches where FLO was a very profitable coin to mine/trade... let's have another one.

Zero, by the time this is said and done while you're mining FLO... you'll also be earning DOGE and LTC.  :P *wishful thinking*

Side note:

There is was like 15 million Flo for sale on www.Altquick.com.  They are the sister site of www.Bitquick.co.  Basically you can purchase coins simply via local bank deposits.

I've been trying to raise the fiat to buy them out for a few weeks.

Just food for thought for potential buyers who didn't know about that option.  They are a bit above market, but with books that thick fuck it!

Very interesting about AltQuick.

Note the 100% climb on Polo/Bittrex was was from just 8 BTC in volume or about $1,000 in buy volume...
It's just a nice hobby keeping my free power miners occupied... while I trade real size on the NYSE and Forex ECNs  :)

Only 11btc worth of LTC.

Perhaps the seller will read this and move their coinage over to Poloniex or Bittrex.

Hate using fucking LTC anyways and Cryptsy doesn't offer BTC/FLO trading :-\.

Cryptsy does have withdrawal issues but I still think they are solvent.  Part of the stack is in LTC playing for the rise.  LTC moves are much higher than BTC moves percentage wise.  When LTC hits 5 bucks again I'll flip back.

There is 0% chance that Cryptsy is solvent for at least for FLO right now.

If anyone has any recommendations please feel free to shoot me a message and we will do what we need to in order to make it happen :).  This is going to need to evolve into a global effort, so if you aren't from California/USA... fucking fabulous!

Cryptsy has at least 40-50 employees (do the math)...
They just opened a Canadian branch, which means it must actually be in Canada...
Which means all US crypto exchanges are on the road to becoming a US broker-dealers...
Since US broker-dealers are forbidden to open foreign accounts.

This is a massive 6 to 7 figure investment which is a roll of the dice...
If they are bought out every employee will have to complete 2-4 FINRA courses and admin costs mount...
It's easier for large Clearing Firms to just turn on Top 20 crypto trading to 5,000 US broker-dealers...
So today's mid-size crypto exchanges are fighting an uphill battle against Wall Street.

You probably don't know this and I can't prove if they have the FLO or not, but www.Altquick.com has like 4 million FLO for near market... great fucking buy if you have $5000 and are looking to get into something interesting.

All of the other books are pretty fucking thin as you can see.

They are the only site you can buy millions at a time without driving any prices up. 

Currently they have the thickest books around.

Sure you pay a little over market, but not as much over market as you would trying to buy that many trust me...

The host I was using to run the florincoin.info explorer shut the site down, I think because someone tried to DDOS them (or us) by making a lot of requests to the block explorer. I'll have to re-write the code so the database isn't easily exploitable by requesting an address or a set of transactions that have hundreds of thousands of inputs and outputs.

Unfortunately I'm away all weekend so it won't be up any time soon. I believe there are some alternate explorers available.

Yes. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=236742.msg2503914#msg2503914

Adding inputs and outputs to a transaction creates a lot more potential blockchain bloat than any tx-comment could. In the end, bytes are bytes, and the fee structure will take care of that issue.

Newbie (new to bitcoin and alt) here-

I have started accumulating florincoin. I  have downloaded my coins to my desktop wallet.
What are my options to back up the wallet? Is a regular macintosh time capsule backup sufficient?

Are there any other wallet options worth considering?

Thank you all for this great thread!


You'll want to show all files on Mac OS like this link explains...
http://ianlunn.co.uk/articles/quickly-showhide-hidden-files-mac-os-x-mavericks/

Then navigate to System/Users/Your username/Library/Application Support/florincoin/wallet.dat

The wallet.dat is what you want to protect and backup.

I don't suggest revealing hidden files on your Mac. It's overly complex for most people and can potentially lead to people losing files that are important (which is why they're hidden in the first place).  

There are a couple of easier ways to do this. One is to just use the Backup Wallet feature built right into most QT or Core based wallets in the File menu.  I demo it in this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JNBD5RN-pM

Or you can easily get to the hidden folder containing the wallet.dat file by going to the Go menu in the Finder, which will give you a list of commonly accessed folders.  

While the menu is open, hold down the Option key and a new item Library will appear about half-way down the menu. Click this and look for Application Support in the window that opens. Inside of that, look for Florincoin and either back up that entire folder (which will give you a copy of the blockchain, any .conf settings file, etc. in addition to the wallet.dat file) or open the folder up and copy the wallet.dat file from there.

Make sure to *copy* the file and not move it by holding down the Option key on the keyboard, and do any of these steps only when the wallet application is not running.

You can also use the Go menu in the finder and click the option near the bottom labeled "Go to Folder" and type or paste the following into the window that opens up

~/library/Application Support/Florincoin

and it will take you straight to the Florincoin folder.  


I also strongly recommend encrypting your wallet before doing this as anyone who can get access to that wallet.dat file would then have access to your funds!  I show how this works in this tutorial:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBK60Zaq-dM

Both of the above are using BitSeeds as the example, but it works the same way in most altcoin wallet applications including Florincoin.

Hope that makes sense, and helps, lidude.

@worth and ursay

I really appreciate that you went into so much detail for somebody that isn't a contributor (yet) to the forum. This is very helpful information. Thank you!

I am trying to educate myself as I am just discovering the power of cryptocurrency and the blockchain.

This particular coin seems to show some promise with the projects that are being developed around it.

Thanks again.   :)

Happy to help. If you have an iOS device check out my course app (top right link in my sig) and I also have a bunch of cryptocurrency-related video tutorials posted on my YouTube profile (bottom link in my sig) for more in-depth help.

Have you considered making your own by dumping private keys?  Or are you interested in something graphically pre-made?  Should I put something together?  Hmmmm...

Too many great people and projects around this coin.  I've been lucky enough to meet many in person and many are friends to this day.  Also, this coin has utility.  I'm long but I guess we're all in this for different reasons.  :P

This is to be expected. It's Cryptsy. 

FLO is on Bittrex - I don't keep my funds on any exchange as a general rule, but I'd trust them there a LOT sooner than I'd ever trust them on Cryptsy.

Cryptsy has a very bad track record and routinely goes months before fixing broken wallets if they fix them at all. I've had a variety of issues with them since 2014 and have almost entirely avoided them for about a year now because of it.

Now everyone seems to be having problems withdrawing funds in any currency. I'm not going to speculate as to the cause of their constant problems, but just FYI since you don't seem to have heard.

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I provided an update so here you go:

First of all, here is a newly finished demo walkthru of Alexandria's features and functionality: http://alexandria.media/#/254d9bc6179aba78f2c1b15b3ef297ca33bdac93a1bf04148813f5382691bc96

Please check it out and let us know what questions you have and what you think of the project.

Secondarily, here are some additional materials to help explain the project:
Pitch Deck: http://ipfs.alexandria.media/ipfs/QmbtwyuSJ1e8C9Q4qM2HxYNHaMiQbwegQLeyEozdAJQ3Ro/the_decentralized_library_of_alexandria_11232015.pdf
9-page Executive Summary: http[Suspicious link removed]cSummary-11252015.pdf

Thirdly, we have a florincoin mining pool running at http://pool.alexandria.media - eventually TradeBot will be integrated into it to automatically execute trades at the pool's cost basis plus a known margin, but for now, its just a normal UNOMP pool.

Fourthly, we'll be putting up another video soon to show how users can start publishing their own original content to the library, so stay tuned for that :)

Lastly, thank you all again for your support - we'll be at Inside Bitcoins in San Diego next week, and I'll be presenting Alexandria there, so if you'll be at the show make sure you come say hello :) http://insidebitcoins.com/san-diego/2015/speakers#devonread
