Title: CRYPTO BULLION (CBX) | Inventor of PoSP!
Post by: cryptobullion.io on February 10, 2015, 10:42:15 PM


The Crypto Bullion (CBX) is the cryptocurrency that has all the right specifications for investment: Quick 65 second blocks for fast transactions, CBX is 100% Proof-of-Stake, there are only less than 1 million CBX in circulation with new coin generation (inflation) maintained at a healthy yearly 2%.  The thing that is the most valuable though, is CBX's dev team which has been developing it since 2013.




PoSP is the special Proof-of-Stake algorithm that the CBX network uses to fuel itself, i.e. generate new blocks.  This algorithm is what makes our unique network very secure and constantly well maintained, as CBX stake owners are rewarded for their participation in this task: creating a truly decentralized network securing algorithm is an important decision that many popular new coins seem to take lightly. PoSP makes sense in efficiency, decentralization and economic value.

Earning CBX by staking is of course entirely optional. To earn rewards or "stake" and participate in the CBX network (and get rewarded for it), all a CBX holder need to do is to own some CBX and keep their CBX Vault Software running on their PC and in staking mode: i.e. either unlocked or unlocked for staking.  Because participating in the PoSP program is optional, people who opt to not participate also give up their potential gains to those who do help in securing the network: this translates into very interesting rewards for you, if you choose to participate, as many opt not to participate for varied reasons (CBX held at exchanges, cold wallets, etc).





At the heart of Crypto Bullion is the CBX Vault Software. This free Software allows you to be in full control over your finances by allowing you to keep CBX stored on your personal computer, and earn interest by participating in the PoSP staking program. The latest version of the CBX Vault is 2.4.3.

Promoting CBX is, naturally, a top priority for us. As a 3 year old cryptocurrency quite a bit of material has been produced online about CBX; yet promoting CBX is still very important since we know CBX remains widely unknown by the crypto community at large.  CBX is a desirable coin, but with so many other choices out there it is important to make sure everybody has had a chance to review information about it.

We are looking for help promoting CBX; if you are interested in getting involved and receive some CBX for it, please communicate with VonSpass

Sorry, don't follow. The 'coin' has been rebranded but the fundamentals remain. There is a new much improved client and more development in the works.

I still have the old client, havent run it for some months.

Do i need to swap coins? Or just install the new client and let it catch up with downloading the blockchain?

Hi Nthused, I've uploaded one to my DropbBox for now (MD5: ae384031c1fcb1129ec22671a4ab1281):

https://www.dropbox.com/s/0pk9ji3xq4i8y93/cbx_bootstrap_20150210.zip

I'll ask Elambert to make it available via the website too.

Hope it helps!

No need to swap coins. The blockchain database has been upgraded from BerkeleyDB to LevelDB, so the client will attempt to perform a local upgrade when run. I'd suggest backing up your .CryptogenicBullion data directory, just to be on the safe side. The data directory will be automatically renamed to .CryptoBullion as part of the upgrade process. You can also rename the directory manually if you wish, but its not necessary.

cheers,

raizor

Yes , good coins like Crypto Bullion should be on exchanges like bittrex , instead of all other scam coins.

This coin may not be any different to many others, but if you keep attentive and carry on developing it, add some services and so on. I think it can do well.

Just your illusion. The less than 1% was spent properly and accounted for in a public ledger. Your comment is even less valid conciddering dev's and community have donated some of their own funds and a lot of time. CBX has a most solid trackrecord.

I have mined at https://cgb.theblocksfactory.com/ and found it to be a reliable pool. Presumably they will upgrade to CBX.

Also recommended to the Sterlingcoin dev team to look at offering CBX payouts for their upcoming multi-pool Cystum, which is currently in development.

I've had contact with @Bitcoin_Rush on Twitter. Tonight he will promote my twitter service. I've put a mention in for Crypto Bullion.
But we can manage a topic about CBX as well, he can add a video with some texts to his show in return of some donation.
If you guys wanna do this, I can edit some video if there are enough graphics or other media I can include from others. Anyone wanna help
get something made? What do we got.

Perhaps let's first see if we can gather enough content to cover 1- 2 minute video and write the story that needs to be told.
You can send what you have here: cryptotraders@xs4all.nl

But we may need to ask some help from the community with more graphics, illustrations and perhaps animation to make something really nice.
Love to see an animated vault closing with CBX on it. We don't need voice-over since btcrush will talk but soundeffects and music possible.

Hey, can you guys tell me how to mine CBX? I'm really new to mining cryptos, but I can give a few cents in RDD or DGB if someone would take the time to tell me how!

Hi sorry, R7 260X OC.

I've tried to set it up using GUIminer but I've had nothing but errors. I've set it up with Dogecoin before, but I'm just having trouble here. Sorry.

I've made this config file for it:
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=pass
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcconnect=127.0.0.1
DNSSEED=1
daemon=1
server=1
gen=0
testnet=0
listen=0
maxconnections=100
addnode=173.230.133.205
addnode=72.78.100.7
addnode=70.98.114.237
addnode=192.81.209.17

addnode=37.187.9.53
addnode=216.158.85.123
addnode=119.9.15.177

and I've added the paths in GUIminer and chosen a card profile, and made it direct to localhost and port 8332 but I'm still getting "no servers could be used."

Yeah, that's why I was asking. I'm good with Google, but not very good at learning about the five bazillion different versions and protocols of cryptocurrencies.

Hell, it's probably better right now to keep mining Digibytes, unless the difficulty on CBX is ludicrously low.

EDIT: http://cbx.binpool.com/ This pool has all of the settings you need to start mining with GPUminer! Sorry to have bothered all of you.
At the moment, it's probably more valuable to mine something like Myriadcoin or Digibyte (which I recommend) and trade for CBX.

Great work CBX team!

Crypto Bullion I think as a storage of wealth is going to be up there with gold (if not higher) in the future, and has successfully rebranded.

I am also impressed with the 16,000 followers you've accumulated on Facebook, shows growing support for a real corporate digital asset.

I've been mining since December 2013 when Dogecoin launched, so have around 1,000 CBX staking.

If 1,000 people all had 1,000 CBX then they would be all in cold storage that would be VERY rare indeed.

What's The Next Stage?

Presumably working with wealthy corporations in Dubai, Hong Kong, Europe and major international asset or financial capital holders is next? Each CBX could easily be worth more than $1 million USD. Is there a strategy for attracting the attention of high profile investors? It feels like CBX is on the verge of making significant progress.

Keep up the good work, values will continue to steadily rise I think in the near future.

CBX Vanity Wallet addresses would be a fantastic addition like IOCoin has done!

Thank you for stopping by and also for your long time support. You bring up some excellent points regarding the next stages of CBX growth. Now that the new client is released we can better move in the direction of growth and expansion. We also are working behind the scenes on continued evolution of CBX itself which will assist greatly in these endeavors.

Regarding the vanity address, this subject has come up in the past and is certainly a nice feature to have. We will have to schedule this for a revisit.

Hello all,

It has been just over one week since the re-branding of Crypto Bullion and the associated release of the new Vault (client/wallet). This has been an extremely proud time for the CBX team as much hard work and time has gone into preparation and development to get to this point. I hope that the community feels good about the rebirth of CBX and the capabilities of the core team leading this change. Special thanks and credit to raizor for coming into this project some months ago and ascending to the lead developer role - we are fortunate to have you!

We would also like to take the time to thank the community that has stood behind this project since the beginning as well as to thank the newcomers, you are appreciated and valued! Should any of you be interested in assisting with taking CBX to the next level and beyond, please reach out. The main goals for CBX are to continue innovative and technical development and to provide ease of use for all. These 2 goals in tandem we are confident will lead to the ultimate goal of mainstream acceptance. Make no mistake, these goals will be reached, but can occur quicker when supported by a community. Everything from artistry, coding to promoting and everything in-between is helpful so please get involved.

Back to the new Vault. Would love to hear more feedback from the community on this release - both positive and negative. This is a work in progress and will continue to evolve with new features and ease of use.
 - How is the startup time improvement?
 - Do you like the new look?
 - Has anyone tried multisig?
 - Bullion control??
 - Any issues or bugs?
 - What new features and functionality would you like to see?

In a related note, thank you to BitcoinFX for identifying a small bug in the Vault that does not allow the user to change the encryption
passphrase while the wallet is locked. The 'OK' button to confirm this function is missing in the current release when the wallet is locked. This has already been fixed in the source code and will be released in the
packaged builds soon. Additionally, BitcoinFX reported experiencing compatibility issues with the new client and an old wallet.dat. This
was resolved by using the dumpprivkey command for extracting the funds from the old wallet and then importing to the new wallet via the importprivkey command. If you encounter this issue and need assistance with the outlined resolution, please reach out and we will be happy to assist.

Lastly raizor is currently looking into the possibility of incorporating vanity address generation directly into the Vault as well as implementation of merged PoW mining.

More to come...

 ~ CBX Core Team

p.s. Lent has begun today. If you are still searching for creative ideas of what to give up for the next 40 days, may I suggest giving up selling CBX. You will feel much better in 6 weeks  :P

Yes, we will have to put together some tutorials for posting on the website. Hopefully some in the community can assist with this?

In the interim, here is a very good multisig tutorial. It is tailored for Bitcoin, but applies to CBX as well. Hope you find this helpful.

It looks like they did that, we got double amount now. I suppose we're gonna need at least 110. Pls all help, we could use a few more markets.

If "we" are lazy we could get listed by sending DOTcoins, last week a coin won with 110,000 about 0.03 btc or 1 million will guarantee listing, 0.25 btc or so.

Yes, it will not change the inflationary profile of CBX but it will maximize security while better incentivizing holders and miners. Sorry for ambiguity but more detail will be released as allowable.

Thanks, yes I think it's good, not sure how much it's used. If anyone likes to purchase gold and silver bullions or coins there's even a business for that accepting CBX.

We can also give another push for Casheer, seems they develop in the right direction. Only don't know where the forum has gone we had quite a bunch of replies.

I wasn't actually aware of coingecko before, I just came across it while looking for sites with outdated info, but i like the idea they have of rating coins by liquidity, development and community.

I also wrote to coinplorer but no success as yet.

Thank you! I have been in contact with coinplorer so they are aware and promised to update. That was however 9 days ago and no update yet so the reminder should be helpful.

Send Control does not work.. i choose entries to send and it ignores my choices and sends whatever it wants.. send control has no control... only display.

Will have a look and report back, thank you.

I've resolved the issue and pushed the fixes to our 'dev' branch on GitHub. The next wallet release will incorporate the change. I think we'll probably push this out as an interim fix, rather than waiting for the next scheduled release. I'll post more details once we've finished some additional testing. Thanks very much for the heads-up TheDirtybird, much appreciated :)

Glad I could be of assistance (other than the fact it messed up my staking times finding that out).. lol

Thanks guys.

Pls don't forget to tweet something. Help us promote a little and who knows, win some coins. If there's enough interest we can do something similar every 2 weeks. If you have ideas pls post, there's a small fund for contests or rewards.

How is the interest for adding new exchanges these days. In the past we came to a point where a majority did not want to have new listings. Some exchanges closed or delisted but we will get Cryptopia in next few weeks or so.

Anyway I did sent an email to make an inquiry to Jubi, a Chinese exchange.
http://www.jubi.com/

What's your opinion.

Good discussion point. Bit of a double edged sword imo. Additional listings increase the potential for exposure to more traders however can also dilute trading volume. Perhaps targeting high volume and established exchanges is the ideal compromise?

Looking forward to being able to register vanity wallets on the blockchain :)

Voted for CBX. However , we need just more than this. There are some other rare coins around like Fibre and Unobtanium. I think they are attracting more attention.

We need to increase the attention by doing some efforts. I dont know what efforts ,  but CBX's volume is so long and price is so low. It is definitely undervalued but no one is interested.

I can tell some of my friends and hopefully  bring 2 votes.

We are -compared to other coins- a small community. I believe we need some extra development efforts.

For example , there are some efforts for developing decentralised exchanges like BitBay or Mercury based on Cross-Chain Atomic Swap protocol.
The latter one is also open source. Here is the btt link. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=946174.0) Actually the dev of mercury doesnt want to add low volume coins. But devs of CBX can fork it and add CBX to fork.
If we can add CBX to some decentralised exchanges , we wont be limited to centralised exchanges and it will also give to trade CBX for different coins like DOGE.

Hello EMIF and thank you for your support and suggestions. We are very fond of all things decentralized and this certainly includes exchanges. I actually have personally reached out to the developer of Mercury a couple of weeks ago. As you stated, we could certainly fork their project if a collaboration is not in the cards. At this time however, our primary focus is on maximizing block chain security and we have an innovative way to do this and to simultaneously generate some serious excitement. As mentioned recently, the white paper draft is complete and will be released once implementation is closer to a reality. In the meantime, we will certainly be keeping an eye on the decentralized exchange landscape to see how and when CBX can take a step into that arena.

Thanks and keep the suggestions and support coming.

Post by: Calculator on March 27, 2015, 01:53:40 AM
After researching many alt coins I have decided to add some CBX to my portfolio because:

1. Fair launch with a public ledger on the 1% premine providing complete transparency as to where the premine was spent (bounties for coin services ie block explorers, pools, development, etc.)

2. Consistent development over a long period of time

3. Professionalism of the presentation for the project

4. Rarity

5. Commitment to security

6. Perseverance.  When the only developer left the project last year a new team was hired to replace him rather quickly.

7. I have no concerns that this coin will ever be abandoned by the devs after reviewing the history of its development.

8. The price right now is very attractive considering the total number of coins, which creates a good entry point.



If this coin gains some more traction it will yield a great return!

21 votes, not too shabby. How many coins will be added? Did not see much for detail...

There's place for 15 coins.


After researching many alt coins I have decided to add some CBX to my portfolio because:

1. Fair launch with a public ledger on the 1% premine providing complete transparency as to where the premine was spent (bounties for coin services ie block explorers, pools, development, etc.)

2. Consistent development over a long period of time

3. Professionalism of the presentation for the project

4. Rarity

5. Commitment to security

6. Perseverance.  When the only developer left the project last year a new team was hired to replace him rather quickly.

7. I have no concerns that this coin will ever be abandoned by the devs after reviewing the history of its development.

8. The price right now is very attractive considering the total number of coins, which creates a good entry point.

If this coin gains some more traction it will yield a great return!


Calculator hit the nail on the head!

I did not forget that and will see who won on 1 april. Perhaps make a new one too? People seriously expected waay too much too soon.

Not sure but sir Richard Branson was pretty close on $94 hehe.

I started mining CGB back in 10/14 and got a handful of coins together in my wallet.
One day the wallet started throwing error messages.
Figured no problem. I'll just save the wallet.dat and reinstall.
Didn't work.

Neither did 1.1.67 nor does the latest version.
Got some exception thrown 3907(?) error.
Checked the forum here and was told "google is your friend"
checked google and got a lot of nothing.
Latest version throws multiple errors including a mingw  :assertion failed prevhash == nexthash on genesisblock: error (paraphrased from memory)
Still no working wallet.
Tried building it myself on my build environment straight from github......got a "missing right operand" error in kernel.cpp....still no working wallet.

A much older version built and ran on my linux box here.....but just like an awful lot of other POW/POS hybrids.....it didn't like NOMP's stratum implementation, so I couldn't add it to my pool server.

Cryptopia's pool goes flakey from time to time and doesn't see any miners and the blocksfactory has all of maybe 5 megs pointed at CBX. (incidentally still running version 1.1.67)
Diff is still down below 1.0 after 2 years so that means there's little to no miner interest in a quite promising coin.
I pointed some hash at it for a few days and got straight strings of consecutive blocks......close to two thousand blocks with only a handful of missing blocks that were found elsewhere.
They're sitting on an exchange now waiting to see if I can get a working wallet on any one of three computers I'm trying to bring it up on now for staking, or whether they get dumped.
The value seems to be holding, but there's really not enough volume to attract traders.....so it's almost dead on the exchanges too, again from lack of interest.

Hell....I even did a dead clean reinstall of win7pro, thinking maybe other crud on a, or a couple machines might be causing the issues.

How many other people are downloading the wallet and the bootstrap only to have it crash after two days of waiting, and then are saying......NEXT?

Throughout this and the other thread there's folks reporting similiar experiences, and they're not getting any answers.....so you can only assume they went elsewhere....is that what you want?.....an exclusive rather than inclusive coin........forget about a community, or a future if that's the case

Hate to say it guys....but you're not going to get the interest you want....regardless of how many giveaways and contests you offer, nor will CBX gain traction until you have a wallet that fires up and runs correctly, first time every time for Mom and Pop and the assorted miners and traders out there.....as there's too many coins out there for folks to choose from to spend days messing around trying get a wallet going to only to watch it crash n' burn, and then be told on the forum thread that google is your friend.

JustBob - I am not sure when you (or anyone else for that matter) were ignored when asking for CBX related technical assistance in this thread (or historical thread) - but if something was missed, I do apologize.

In order to clarify regarding your reported client issue, is the issue occurring when you bring in the old wallet.dat? Does the client work properly when using a newly generated wallet.dat?

First off, I'd like to say that I appreciate your prompt reply, as I "was" involved in mining CGB long ago, and would really like to take it up again.

And yes, I now have a 1.1.67 wallet running with a bare wallet.dat, (don't know about the latest version yet), I'll report back when the bootstrap is finished on that machine.
And to be quite frank.....I've tried so many times to get this beast up and running that I couldn't tell you straight off, which versions and combinations of version/wallet.dat throws which errors
Anyways on a more positive note, apparently my earlier posting attracted some attention, as there's a few  more folks on theblocksfactory tonight.

JustBob, it is sounding to me like you may have a corrupted wallet.dat causing an issue with compatibility. So you know and to put one thing to rest, raizor has done a phenomenal job with the new client and I am extremely proud of the product and its functionality. We will continue to evolve and improve the client, but I am confident new users of CBX are downloading and using a quality product and are not turned off or away by it (or by this community).

That being said, there is the issue at hand that you are experiencing. We will have to work you through this. First we need to identify the problem for certain though. Please make sure that the new client (without your old wallet.dat) is working properly for you as step one. Also, our back and forth communication will be easier and more effective via email if you don't mind. You can reach us directly at cryptobullion.io@gmail.com.

Thanks.

hi guys, not sure if anyone else has had this issue, but the wallet isn't liked by my antivirus, identified it as an IRC malware.  false positives i know but having to disable AV just to be able to open the wallet gets annoying fast, never had this problem before with the previous CGB wallet but have experienced it with a few other really old altcoin wallets where as i understand it occurs because of the IRC related code which is no longer present or different in latest bitcoin/altcoins code :\

http://i.imgur.com/4JG5Z9y.png
also I tried to download the latest wallet from here http://cryptobullion.io/storage-use/ and after its downloaded chrome blocks and renames the file as it "may harm my browsing experience" :(

all the efforts to promote will be wasted if users are unable to download and use it normally like any other altcoin walletqt :\

I think it is not related with IRC , its because of less downloads from the website. Chrome just blocks them if the number of downloads are small or from an unknoen source (according to my experience).

Here is how you can close the warning. Take your own risk. If you do this and never set back to original settings , then you can install malware without notification.

The following steps will turn of phishing and malware warnings, as well as download warnings.
1-)In the top-right corner of the browser window, click the Chrome menu Chrome menu.
2-)Select Settings.
3-)Click Show advanced settings.
4-)Under "Privacy," uncheck the box "Enable phishing and malware protection."

Doesnt matter , I guess. I meant the website referring as where you are downloading from. So , even if its in mega, chrome behaves it "This is an exe , I should give some warning , It has been downloaded a few times or none! So ,I must keep away people from downloading it!"

BTW- If you cant see the setting for privacy , you can click show advanced settings. After that you should see privacy settings and untick the related part.

I have seen this occurrence in the past with different coins and always thought it to be a Chrome security feature as indicated by EMIF. Never had the issue with other browsers... Will do some testing this morning to try to replicate this as it is not ideal as digit has suggested. FWIW, just downloaded the Mac client on Chrome and no warning. Will get into PC testing at the office.

The chrome thing just happened while i trying to transfer it over to virustotal from mega so i could post a result here, never seen it before, but just an additional thing that came up :D  

anyhow Virustotal - the results here - https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/af11104e7f653ca6dc0267573bff662a4172d7aa4a717cae1387b465d847fd81/analysis/
its results are looking better then the previous CBX release which had a higher number of products detect it, with this current release of CBX walletqt its only Kaspersky thats detects it as "Trojan.Win32.IRCbot.vit"

Kaspersky products i've been using for a long time along and many different wallets under it, and I can only recall a few of those ever got blocked, because of the IRC parts in the code in older bitcoin for finding nodes that made it seem like a trojan.
The previous CGB wallet worked without issue under kaspersky so i can only conclude its something new that been added in the IRC related parts of the code that Kaspersky doesnt like.  Its more an annoyance then a problem for me as i have to disable my AV everytime to run the wallet (actually even open the folder as kaspersky automatically quarantines it lol)
but something devs should be aware of.  If it were some unknown company antivirus it would prob not matter but this is Kaspersky so its ranks a higher what they think imho ;)

Thanks for the heads up digit. I agree that it would be wise for us to try and avoid these false positives as disabling your AV software is a not a great long-term solution. If anyone has any info on other AV software that flags up the wallet, please could you list them here? I'll look into stopping this happening once we have a list I can test against. I've butted heads with these heuristics engines before (mainly with compressed executables), so I'm sure we can work out a solution. At the very least, we can look to provide a wallet with the IRC code removed, for those that wish to use it.

cheers,

raizor

I wonder if the A/V software is simply looking for words like USER, JOIN and WHO embedded within the executable? Or even just the IRC server hostname? If so, basic encryption of the strings may be sufficient to prevent a false trigger.

It looks like you may be onto something there almightyruler :) We've been doing some tests/experiments with Kaspersky and have compiled a version that no longer gets flagged. I think Kerspersky's heuristics engine is pattern matching the text and one or more sections of bytecode in the binary/exe, which is triggering the false positive.

Elambert is replacing the windows executables on the site, so if anyone has had trouble with the issue. Please download the updated windows wallet shortly.

We have set up an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel on FreeNode IRC. I've created and registered the channel #cryptobullion, so if you're already an IRC user, please pop by and say hello. If you've never used IRC before, you can connect using a web-client in your browser: https://webchat.freenode.net (https://webchat.freenode.net) I find IRC is great for keeping in touch and makes a nice addition to message boards for live chatting. Hopefully we'll have a tipping and help bot running in the channel soon too :)

In other news, the CryptoBullion Casino I mentioned a little while ago is now up and running and features Roulette, Blackjack, Video Poker and Dice. You can play with 'play' money or real CBX. We will be running some promotions for the Casino here and on IRC soon. You can visit the Casino at: http://cbxcasino.l8.io (http://cbxcasino.l8.io). If you are playing with real CBX, please be sure to backup your personal URL so that you can revisit your game page in future. The site offers the option to email yourself the details for future reference.

Thanks all,

raizor

I'd like your opinion on something, this is not to promote Horizon. They have released decentralized trading in the wallet (HZXchange) and with that comes the option to trade cryptocurrencies.
Please read their post here and tell me if this is something for CBX to be included in.

Thanks BTCat! This is the first I've heard of Horizon. It sounds interesting, but something about it makes me a little nervous. I'm still waiting to be convinced by SuperNet and this seems to be cut from the same cloth. Personally, I'd give it some time to see how it pans out. I may be being overly cautious though. My two cents :)

I also follow HZ time to time. And see some potential at it due to more fair distribution over NXT. And I really want to see CB in its HZxchange. Im really bored cryptsy (and centralised exchanges). And it would always be better to be able trading other than BTC.

I will try their other crypto-HZ exchange will give feedback about them.

linusdunekrs, you seem to be on the correct chain. Block 942,187 is our latest, with a hash of 00000000072f26c1518e6d136aab2dbce75c40555ddd91532c64fd85aa93c45f. It looks like a few nodes ended up on a competing chain yesterday. All our nodes automatically switched to the correct chain, but coinplorer and theblocksfactory still seem to be having some issues. We'll reach out to them tomorrow to hopefully get it resolved quickly. Thank you for the info, we'll post an update tomorrow.

Source code on github has been updated with additional checkpoints. New Linux builds are available now via the website. We will be adding Windows builds and Mac shortly. Please update as these are released as we suspect old clients running on the network as part of the cause of recent contest.

Windows builds updated on the website now and available for download. All builds available now except for Mac which will come ASAP. Also, coinplorer is on the correct chain now, just awaiting confirmation from theblocksfactory. The official CBX block explorer is down temporarily.

Please update your clients to the new released versions asap to help avoid any consensus issues. v.1.2.0.6

Morning all.

Just used bootstrap on a fresh download of the chain, (still had around 170k blocks to go using bootstrap) and all was complete in about 3 hours.
Been having trouble getting synced myself, probably and largely due to the fact that my wallet hadn't been used since October last year, and partly because I'm impatient as hell.

I have some CBX I want to get off Cryptsy but unable to withdraw as their wallet is in maintenance, and has been for some time.
Was wondering elambert, if you could maybe shoot them an email and ask them to do a re-download of the blockchain so our purchased CBX are free to roam again  :)

Thanks, Killiz

P.S. If anyone needs any guidance on how to do a re-download of the blockchain or to use the bootstrap file let me know and I'll put up a step by step guide.

Thanks friend, hope all is well, always nice to be missed.

Couple of questions.

*How's things going with the development side of things, and is there any hint as to what the 'innovative' way to maximize blockchain security is, without giving too much away?
*When is the client expected to be completed roughly?
*Is there anything the community can do to help? i.e Banners, logos, suggestions, feedback, running around naked through the streets of their nearest city, with 'cryptobullion.io made me do it' written across their forehead in marker pen.

Couple of suggestions.

*Roll up the shutters, everybody is shopping next door and down the street.
*Open core team discussion. Our most vocal supporters are invited into the core team, only to disappear into a void of obscurity, latest being BTCat. I've been there and know how hard the team works behind the scenes, and the ideas and enthusiasm that is thrown about. But people are walking by what seems to be a closed shop. Cut out emails and skypes and whatever else, where possible, and discuss on the forums and message boards as an open source development team, you could be missing out on important feedback, suggestions and attention.
*Run naked through your nearest city with 'cryptobullion.io' written in marker pen across your forehead.

Lets get this party started again!

Such a good Crypto, such a good development team. It's time to rebuild a good community.

Killiz

Hey guys,
Couple things.

First, I have not heard back from cryptsy but have offered assistance with the 'wallet maintenance'.

Second, a new revamped client has recently been released and is a major step forward from the old client we were operating with for the first almost 2 years.

Third, development continues but takes time. As is BTCat's situation, we are all volunteers here and offer what we can of ourselves to work on the project because we believe in it and have invested in it. Next up on the TODO tech wise is merged mining. This will aid in better protecting the block chain and also draw in additional attention from miners. After that hard fork we will follow as soon as possible with another to release Crypto Bullion's own unique version of Proof-of-Stake for which the white paper is already written. In my opinion this is the best version of PoS out there but the proof is in the pudding.

I completely get what you mean regarding community silence and that is a growing problem sadly. We have worked to continue to maintain trust by working hard and providing a quality product but can't blame people for running to the next big windfall hope-urtinity. We will continue to develop along the planned promise that we outline in our announcements and I am still confident our goals will be achieved.

As far as communicating, much of our announcements go without response from the community. Occasionally we get a nice job but mostly if we hear something it relates to an issue (such as the Cryptsy withdrawal issue). For the most part it is BTCat, raizor and myself grinding this out everyday getting strength from each other. It is a rather thankless job, but that is okay - we believe in ourselves and our product and will stand by it and better it.

Any suggestions from the community are welcome but really just need people to get interested and care. Continued development brings that to the table but takes time. Investors also bring that to the table...

Killiz,

I read again and don't think you meant it that personal, so my apology for the aggressive defense.

Elambert has made many posts with his vision on future developments. Think of all the coins that have uncertain future and unproven devteams, I think we should be happy with a dedicated and consistant dev/manager who stayed on the ship since mid 2013. That alone is worth his weight in gold. I hope more people will start to appreciate that and join the club.

I completely get what you mean regarding community silence and that is a growing problem sadly. We have worked to continue to maintain trust by working hard and providing a quality product but can't blame people for running to the next big windfall hope-urtinity. We will continue to develop along the planned promise that we outline in our announcements and I am still confident our goals will be achieved.

As far as communicating, much of our announcements go without response from the community. Occasionally we get a nice job but mostly if we hear something it relates to an issue (such as the Cryptsy withdrawal issue). For the most part it is BTCat, raizor and myself grinding this out everyday getting strength from each other. It is a rather thankless job, but that is okay - we believe in ourselves and our product and will stand by it and better it.

Any suggestions from the community are welcome but really just need people to get interested and care. Continued development brings that to the table but takes time. Investors also bring that to the table...


Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, putting together the detailed update and voicing your opinions on the community situation elambert. Much appreciated.

Getting attention and support from the community has certainly been a slog for CBX. With a crypto so promising fundamentaly, and a development team so dedicated, I've also felt the frustration when each achievement seems to fall on deaf ears.

There has to be a problem somewhere that can be fixed, as to why readers don't take the time or effort to make repeated and quality posts. If people are looking for a long established, actively developed, fair and honest cryptocurrency then people are going to run into CBX. Why they pass by is a puzzle that needs solving.

Feedback and regular discussion from readers creates a vibrancy within a thread, along with buoyancy on the altcoin section. Updates on development keep people interested. Most importantly, humour and idle chit chat between readers keep them coming back on a daily basis.

I'm as much to blame as anyone else over the last year or so, for only coming to this thread to take a quick glance to see if there are any updates or new posts, then I'm gone. I then realised that this was probably what everyone else who has an interest in CBX was doing. How we get people talking again is anyone's guess, but I believe the use of this thread for less serious and less confidential communication, rather than just a posting point for info and updates would bring people closer to CBX again.


I think you have misunderstood. What I was trying to say was that there is so much discussion going on behind the scenes that it is easy to get caught up and forget about keeping the interest of readers, and potential investors.

If I had known you were so prickly, I wouldn't of pointed my finger at you as an example.

Killiz,

I read again and don't think you meant it that personal, so my apology for the aggressive defense.

Elambert has made many posts with his vision on future developments. Think of all the coins that have uncertain future and unproven devteams, I think we should be happy with a dedicated and consistant dev/manager who stayed on the ship since mid 2013. That alone is worth his weight in gold. I hope more people will start to appreciate that and join the club.






No offence taken BTCat, I have a habit of posting in a not so clear way. I couldn't care more about any other crypto than I do for CBX, and if I was able, I would do all the hard work myself for sure.
All I can do is buy and hold as I've been doing for getting on to 2 years, and throw a few words about now and again. Sometimes you may get hit by them, but they are never thrown with contempt.

Hey guys,
Couple things.

First, I have not heard back from cryptsy but have offered assistance with the 'wallet maintenance'................


Hi im new in comments but not in this proyect as someone mentioned before i keep coming for updates only, today i want to show my support to you guys, i am following several projects in crypto space, CBX from my personal point of view has good future but not gonna make it alone, there are some projects like supernet, blocknet or even bitshares that could booster the adoption and provide exposure to CBX, is interesting that blocknet claim to achieve some P2p communication at the edges between blockchains and not relying on groups of servers utilising m-of-3 multisig like supernet does, anyway  if CBX get involved in some of this projects will benefit and could get a better scope of option to make their own path and fulfill the niche what is created for, all the projects has pros and cons but i think CBX should not be an island, cheers  :) :)

Post by: raizor on May 08, 2015, 12:18:51 PM
Killiz, those are some good points. I should point out that I can see how BTCat misinterpreted your post, as I got the wrong impression too when I initially read it :) Anyway, all said with good intention, so let's concentrate on moving forward.

Guys,

I'm tired as hell due to following the election here in the UK, so please excuse any fuzziness in my text below.

I appreciate that a lot of the discussion takes place in private, and addressing that makes a lot of sense. Crypto in general seems to be quite 'protectionist' as many developers are worried about their work being copied before release. However, I don't think that's the correct mentality, especially if Crypto is to succeed. We need to work together as much as possible as there will be countless external threats to our existence in the future, I'm sure. Communication with the community hasn't been particularly great of late (on my part at least), so let's look to address that. I will aim to provide a weekly update from this point forward. Feel free to give me a nudge now and again :)

The team and the community is what initially attracted me to CryptoBullion and that still stands. We have some great people here and we should concentrate on working together and helping each other as much as possible in order to ensure the future success of CryptoBullion. The 'active' Core Team is indeed small and could certainly do with the injection of some new blood and renewed enthusiasm.

As Elambert mentioned, the Core Team (primarily Elambert, BTCat and myself) are working on CBX in our own time, without any payment and I'm sure you can appreciate many of us have families to feed and general day-to-day expenses to cover, which can make life a little stressful from time to time. The lack of funding of course affects the pace of development as we need to do other work in order to generate income. The continued fall in bitcoin value has also compounded this issue. The lack of a development and marketing budget also means that the Core Team has to personally fund things for now, so it's actually costing us to develop CBX. This is the fact of the matter and unless we look to raise some funding, this is how we're going to have to continue for the time-being.   

With honesty and openness in mind, I'd like to lay out some of my thoughts in regard to the current situation and future hopes/goals for CBX. I think it's important to focus on negatives and shortcomings too, so that they can be discussed, addressed and resolved. I foresee a continued discussion leading to a short-list of features to be developed, which we can prioritise as a community according to time-required, importance and potential positive impact. 

Blockchain Bloat
One of my major personal bugbears with CBX is the ever increasing block count. Since PoS kicked in, the size of the blockchain has grown and grown and block 1,000,000 is now on the horizon. In the medium term, I believe we must look to address this issue by either condensing the blockchain and reducing future bloat or providing the ability to run 'thin' clients that do not require the complete blockchain to be stored locally. I am also inclined to suggest tweaking the PoS block time in the short to medium term as a measure to reduce blockchain bloat until an increase in volume warrants faster blocks.

The initial sync time required for a new CryptoBullion instance is also very slow and I feel this also needs to be addressed in order to make the experience as smooth and speedy as possible for new users.

Proof-of-Stake / Proof of Work
Our current PoS algorithm is not optimal and promotes hoarding of coins and allows users to stake periodically without any real penalty. Periodic staking is not ideal as it does little to improve network security if users are not actively minting/staking on the network. Elambert has spent a great deal of time addressing this and has produced a whitepaper with a proposal for a new and  bespoke Proof-of-Stake algorithm to address these issues. I believe it's probably time to share this and open discussions so that we as a community can refine it and start to develop and implement it.

As Elambert has mentioned previously, we are working on incorporating merged mining (AuxPOW) into CryptoBullion, which will allow you to mine other PoW coins (Doge/LTC etc) at the same time as mining CBX. This should encourage more PoW mining and as a result, improve network security and stability.

Utilizing CryptoBullion
What use are all these coins/currencies? The majority of Cryptocurrencies are merely get-rich-quick schemes or fodder for speculators who have no vested interest in the coin itself. Without a way to utilize a coin, what is its use?

For CryptoBullion to 'break out', it must stand out from the crowd by providing something unique and special. I've been giving this considerable thought and a dedicated CBX marketplace seems like a promising solution to kickstarting a thriving CryptoBullion economy. I've been working on something along these lines for another project, with incorporating the functionality into CBX being in the forefront of my mind. I'm thinking more along the lines of a decentralized EBay than SilkRoad, as I don't think that's a road CBX should travel along (pardon the pun). I think decentralized markets could well turn out to be something of a 'killer app' for cryptocurrency in general and a good fit for CryptoBullion.

The CryptoBullion Community and Team
I believe we really are in this together and in order for CryptoBullion to succeed, we all need to contribute in some way. If you're frustrated with the speed of progress or the lack of communication, please consider what you can do to assist in helping to overcome the issues. We are a friendly bunch and would love for more of you to get involved in some way :)

Thanks

raizor

TLDR: Let's talk more and plan our next steps for moving CryptoBullion forward together :)

Great post raizor, thank you!

I like the proposal of moving the behind the scenes conversations to the open air of the forum, great suggestion killiz - thanks! I think we did this a lot better in the past with our old friend papersheepdog leading the way but have since moved away from this approach. I believe this approach helps to allow the community to contribute and also serves as a constant reminder that this is an open source project which is owned and managed by a community consensus. The core team can help to guide and carry out the implementation of the community's desires but ownership of the project is truly in the hands of the owners, stakers and miners of CBX.

Let's get this started.

raizor,
So to summarize your vision prioritization:
1. Address blockchain bloat
2. PoS/PoW enhancement
3. Promote CBX utilization (market place + other ideas)
4. Community responsibility for ownership and participation

I suppose these items can be divided further into technical and non-technical development. What steps do you propose to tackle the blockchain bloat issue as the priority and what do we need to get this project going?

Also, I would like to request the community to suggest and assist with leading the way of creating ways that supporters of CBX can contribute to the project. I know there are many out there that want to help but don't know how or don't feel they have the skills to contribute. Everyone brings different skills to the table and can help our community grow and succeed. Just need to find a niche. Ideally we can outline some tasks and projects that can guide those with interest and free time.

I know BTCat has provided a link to submit CBX related articles via github for publication and promotion.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those with the passion to write. I think employing the tool of github is a great idea as well as this can allow the community to contribute to the project in the non-technical arena now as well as the technical one.

All, feel free to contribute, get involved and voice your opinions. Lets get this community electrified again!


P.S.
I received a response from Cryptsy regarding the wallet issue and it should be resolved shortly. Below is the message:

Quote
Hello Elambert,

Havent talked in a while. :)

Our wallet got a few bad transactions and then tried to spend non existent inputs. It happens now and then. But then the wallet needs to have all transaction data stripped. And rescan/redownload the blockchain. I was a bit slow getting to it but it only has 50k blocks left to sync now

Should be up in the morning. Message me on skype if you wanna chat :)

I think there's a technical aspect to all of them Elambert, other than perhaps #4, In terms of solution to the blockchain bloat issue, I'll need to do some more research to identify the best approach. I'm keen to hear some general feedback from the community in the meantime :)

Great stuff!

I thoroughly approve of the updates. I know they do sometimes seem to fall on deaf ears, but they provide a necessary focal point for the community. It helps settle the nerves also after a drop in price (to know that good work is going on behind the scenes). As has been pointed out though, you do all have other obligations so progress can take some time... It might be better to make the updates fortnightly for that reason. Just a suggestion as it would be a shame if you felt pressured to come up with new positive things after a week of setbacks or something.

I'm firmly in the "don't know how or don't feel they have the skills" camp. I'm very happy to support giveaways and competitions though, as I think that they really help from a marketing perspective.

I got given some coins once in a giveaway. It wasn't a coin I knew much about, but it inspired me to research it more and within a couple of months I'd bought a significant (top10) stake in it.

I remember seeing some sort of giveaway thing on a new exchange a while back, where you could just set it up and people can claim free coins every couple of hours or something. Anyone remember that? It might be gone as I had a look for it just now and couldn't figure out where I'd seen it.

Thank you snatchmonkey :)

To be honest, even sharing your thoughts here really helps. It's always good to get a fresh perspective and some feedback. I feel your pain with regard to price drops. They do seem to be caused primarily by low volume and trading bots though, the gradual ones at least. On the upside, it really doesn't take much volume to get the price shooting back up again due to the volume and limited number of total coins.

The free coins thing you mention may have been a faucet. It's essentially a site that pays out a small amount to visitors and takes donations to refill the pot. Apologies if you already knew this, but it may be useful info for someone if that is the case.  I don't think there's currently a CBX faucet, is there Elambert? It would be good for someone to set one up if they have time :)

cheers,

I've just finished upgrading the QT wallet to QT5 (from QT4). The next release will be QT5 based. I imagine we'll add some more features before the next wallet update though. If anyone has any suggestions for features or enhancements to add to the pot, please jot them down here.

Also, I've been wondering how the community feels about transaction anonymity? By this I mean the ability to send coins to someone without anyone else being able to trace/track the source and destination of the transaction. It's probably not so much of an issue at the moment, but it may become one if you want to buy a lifesize Jenna Jameson doll from the future CBX marketplace :P

The site where there was a faucet within the exchange was probably cryptex.biz, but they went out of business.

We can ask the Cryptopia guys if they want to implement something like this. They seem to be in for a lot of things.

Thanks for all the posts, good work.


About anonymity personally I don't really care about such feature, it has been a big hype for new coins to set that as goal.
If you're not doing anything illegal then probably no one will ever care about your transaction and it's already very hard to backtrace.

I saw one wallet had some nice features like price chart or info on the blockchain etc. A blockexplorer within the wallet would sure be nice.

BTCat, I'm not against the idea of price charts, but some may feel that the necessary centralization is undesirable. Personally, I don't see it being a problem for something like this. I imagine we'd have a service running on a VPS, which would be responsible for polling the exchanges and storing the latest prices in a database. Clients could then connect to get the latest batch of timestamped prices. We could potentially share the prices from node to node in p2p manner, but I think that's probably overkill. We could pull the latest CBX news down in the same manner too. Hmm, the more I think about this, the more I like it. It could certainly be used to make the wallet overview page more informative and interesting. We could give advanced notice of hard-forks, upgrades etc too.

I like the idea of a block-explorer too, but it would be a fair chunk of work just to save someone firing up a web-browser.

Something else I was mulling over recently was 'web' wallets. I've found them to be a little clunky, but wondered if anyone else was a big fan of them. I'm referring to the QT wallets that have a HTML interface. Effectively a mini website running in the wallet, providing the wallet GUI (buttons, textboxes etc). Vericoin and Shadowcoin both use one. I'm sure there are other coins too, but those are the only ones I've come across.

cheers,

raizor

I've only used a handful of wallets before, but I like the recent DGC one. It has the block explorer and price chart as mentioned, and also an irc portal to the DGC channel. I don't go on there much but when I do it is easier to fire up the client than it is for me to search out a web link to take me there. Even if not as a community gathering place, a similar setup might be useful for support and troubleshooting problems.

I think that must have been it BTCat (cryptex), I had an idea that it was something you had mentioned before.

I've just checked out the DGC one, snatchmonkey. I do like the idea of an IRC pane that autoconnects to the #cryptobullion. The market data section is pretty neat too. I think we should add something similar to our wallet. The DGC wallet only pulls prices from Bittrex, but I think we could improve that and pull from multiple sources. Thanks for the info :)

Post by: digit on May 09, 2015, 07:56:12 AM
regarding the blockchain bloat and PoS enhancement, i think this can be partially addressed by the use of minimum inputs amount (eg 50 CGB) that can stake to prevent fractional and dust amounts staking.  also and prevent splitting of inputs below a certain amount eg 100 CGB, reduce further bloat of blockchain and users own wallet.dat with the dust amounts staking in always on wallet. Maybe also making changes to increase the block time would help as well, i was looking at the blockchain explorer at random 10 minute period and found that at least 10 blocks are mined, so any efforts to increase the time between blocks would definitely help towards reducing bloat.

If looking into research for PoS, i would recommend using Blackcoin as model, almost all of the new PoS coins in the past year including those mentioned above have drawn from BLK for their PoS features

Great info digit, thank you very much. I keep hearing about Blackcoin's PoS model, so I'll spend some time looking over the code.

Great conversation occurring here!

I am a big fan of continuing the evolution to make the CBX Vault (client) more feature rich so users have the functionality they desire in an easy to use and intuitive platform. This should definitely be pursued and does add tremendous value.

The biggest bang for the buck regarding time and effort expenditure in development I believe comes from implementation of CBX's own unique Hybrid algorithm (proposed in the unreleased white paper). I do agree that Blackcoins PoS model is an improvement to the PPC PoS model but one solution does not fit all. I maintain that the proposed PoSP solution, in conjunction with PoW merge mining, is the right solution for CBX and its future.

I am not suggesting tabling the Vault's feature development, just perhaps allocating the larger portion of effort towards the algo project? Just my opinion here guys.

Regarding blockchain bloat... CBX having been around for almost 2 years now combined with a one-minute target block time have made the CBX blockchain grow quickly. I think we do need to seriously consider slowing target block time to the 5-10 minute range while multiplying the PoW reward by the same factor to maintain equilibrium. CBX has been traditionally designed and targeted as more of a storage of wealth than a currency and if this direction is maintained, a further slowing of block generation time I feel is acceptable.

On that note, it seems the question of direction needs to be discussed. Do we want CBX to fight with the multitude of coins in the battle to be the every day spending medium or do we want CBX to continue to establish itself as the premier crypto-commodity (storage of wealth) / digital precious metal?

Like gold a metal only becomes precious due to it's features making many people and businesses wanting it.
It's pretty and shiney for use as jewelry, a huge market.
It's good for use in electronica that everyone uses, mobile phones, etc.

So for CBX to become more of a precious digital commodity the best would be to develop features in digital form that makes it wanted by many.

Therefor I would like to see tools developed that makes it easier to implement CBX into platforms. When businesses start to see the benefits of using CBX as a backbone then the coin has more reason to exist, more people will want it and the price will grow. 

Easy said  ;D

I think we do need to seriously consider slowing target block time to the 5-10 minute range while multiplying the PoW reward by the same factor to maintain equilibrium. CBX has been traditionally designed and targeted as more of a storage of wealth than a currency and if this direction is maintained, a further slowing of block generation time I feel is acceptable.

This is more in line with how i feel about it that we should have longer block times as its unnecessary for a store of wealth to be superfast transactions, and the 5-10 minute range sounds more sane :)

On that note, it seems the question of direction needs to be discussed. Do we want CBX to fight with the multitude of coins in the battle to be the every day spending medium or do we want CBX to continue to establish itself as the premier crypto-commodity (storage of wealth) / digital precious metal?

Store of wealth and rarity has always been the appeal of CBX to me.  but at current exchange rate on cryptsy is difficult for this image to be maintained, i've been buying up more the past few months and am really annoyed with the wallet situation on cryptsy that is preventing me from withdrawing to my wallet. I hav mentioned it more then a few times but Cryptsy really does not seem to place a priority on keeping their wallet systems up and working and as the general attitude of crypto users is such that the majority do not care about the actual wallet as long as they can keeping flipping their coins on cryptsy/exchanges.  The maintenance is also ridiculously low price on CGB and other coins in similar situation that have working wallets/blockchain but are stuck in maintenance hell on cryptsy.  It causes a loss of interest and prevents others from seeing as it a something more then just another altcoin :\

CBX is in a small club of altcoins that can after 2 years still has a REAL team and people behind it which is a rare thing, and gives me more confidence in holding CBX long term. :)

Evening all.
Good to see some serious discussion going on around here again. Elambert, Raizor, BTCat. Thanks for deciphering and contemplating my previous posts and throwing us some bone to chew on again, much appreciated I think it is, and will, prove to be a good move.

Quite a lot to read through since I was last here so picked out a couple of things I've skimmed from the surface.

First up, Funding

I think funding is definately a priority for the community to address. Some may disagree as to why they should fund something that has given them little to no return to recent date on monies invested. I argue that why a development team should spend time on something that gives them no financial support on time invested, and this is what we should be also investing in. We are honoured to have a team that sticks by their beliefs and visions for CBX, and have not deserted this coin long ago as a lost cause. So I've come up with a simple donation plan proposal.

In the past the CBX team have accepted donations solely in CBX. This is great as long as there is steadily increasing or stable and liquid value, as is sadly no longer the case at the moment.
I think the dev team should ask to accept donations in bitcoin and maybe more liquid crypto-currencies.
As an incentive to donate I recommend that any donations are to be split as follows, or something similar.

70% of the donation goes to the dev team.

20% goes on placing a support buy order on cryptsy at current level, 1 'CBXoshi'  ??? above the first and not moved to create buy support. Any CBX accumulated to be stored for the same reasons as stated below.

10% to be used to buy directly into sell orders. Any CBX accumulated to be stored for giveaways, contests or even a quarterly draw to win the accumulated pot of CBX.

Splitting donations up like this will support the team, price levels and buy support, giveaways and raffles.

I can give a little in BTC when paid at the end of every month. If more could do the same this could add up to make a hugely significant difference.

Jenna Jameson Dolls

I think the CBX core teams primary focus should be on the mass production and sale of Jenna Jameson Dolls for CBXXX.

Marketplace

Awesome idea. This could start right here, right now.
Do you want more CBX? Do you have an item or service you want to exchange for CBX? Post a description, picture and asking price. Let's get the marketplace rolling!

Currency or Commodity?

Commodity!

Blockchain bloat

I believe raising block times up to 10 mins between blocks would not be a problem whatsoever for CBX. Transactions are instant, and with a highly secure hybrid crypto like CBX, confirmation times are non important in theory. Raising the POW reward up to 10x accordingly would maybe attract more miners, even though inflation wouldn't be damaged, a higher reward always looks juicier.( What a strange word juicier is to look at don't u think, made me pull a face and think what the hell is that I've just wrote. Juicier, joooocier).

All other technical stuff I will leave for more qualified people to comment on.

Oh and I want to say a few words to those that only come here to read. I'm talking to you Mr and Mrs I've got nothing to say and no idea how to say it even if I did. Hello, how are you?  ;D One week ago we had 9486 thread views, we now have 10198. The number of visitors against the number of posts doesn't add up. Please spend a minute or two to voice your opinions and say hello, your support is greatly needed!

Some great ideas there Killiz, thanks for taking the time to share them :)

The funding idea sounds great, and I think your proposed splits make a lot of sense. Increasing volume and maintaining/increasing current market price can't be a bad thing! Another option for handling future funding would be to cost out individual enhancements/new features and either raise funding directly on an item by item basis, or pull funding from a central pool.

CBXXX eh? Now there's an idea! haha. I'm still very excited about the thought of having a CBX marketplace. I've started putting together some rough ideas here, which I'll share once I've got them together. I think this could be pretty special.

As an aside, I've started incorporating IRC chat into the wallet. I think this will prove very useful for encouraging community growth and involvement. This will be included in the next wallet update :)

cheers,

raizor

It would be great if CBX can have it's own revenue stream. Some small business to use for buybacks and fund development.
Donations can help but with regular profit we can keep it up longterm without asking too much from community.  

Example, we could add a page for advertisements on the website, perhaps not pretty but it even could be done in the wallet between newsflashes or pricequotes of coins.

btw. If people like to use CBX on a marketplace you can set CBX as payment method on Cryptopia. https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/MarketPlace
No idea if there are many buyers but at least it works.

I challenge you to list a Jenna Jameson.

Interesting ideas :)

With part of the funding going towards maintaining the market price, this could be done on exchanges other than Cryptsy...

Seriously though, Jenna is getting a bit long in the tooth even for an old timer like myself, I think Tori Black or Emma Mae might better appeal to the target demographic.

I just checked and she's 41! Man, that makes me feel old. She's still obsessed with chasing MMA fighters as far as I know. I remember reading recently that she's got her sights on Connor McGreggor. Hahaha, he'd better run...

You might be right about the target demographic :)

Would people be interested in having details of staked coins in the wallet GUI? By this I mean a display of how many CBX you've staked this session and in the last 7, 30 and 365 days. Perhaps also an 'average CBX staked per day' display too. It's something that I'd personally find useful. Thoughts? It should be fairly straightforward to add something like this.

Hi Raizor, yes I would like that - any room for a light weight chart/graph with this info? - with target banding so you can see if you are staking at the optimum rate - might encourage people to keep their wallets staking 24/7

Just catching up...

* Killiz, thank you for the suggestions! We do have the CBX foundation donation address published, I will work on getting a BTC one as well.

* Seems there is support and no opposition to moving to 10 minute target block time?

* The community wants a Marketplace  ;D

YES and YES! Think these are excellent features to add and can certainly help to encourage users to keep their Vaults running as FiniteRed pointed out. Remember to keep your Vaults 'unlocked for minting' though!

* I imagine Jenna Jameson to be one of those ladies that starts lots of fights between men, perhaps this is the root of her MMA attraction  ;)

CBX fallen back into maintenance again on Cryptsy, withdraw disabled :(

I'm only making an assumption here but I believe reason its happened might be because of the dust inputs from a long period of staking and splits, that result in tx being to large and causing the wallet to fail when a large CBX withdrawal attempts to utilize too many of the dust inputs meet the requested amount.

Maybe the case. I've had quite a large withdrawal pending for a couple of days now. I made a tester withdrawal of 10 CBX before the large one and it came from a number of addresses each with around 1 or less CBX.

I recieved this response from cryptsy earlier today.

   

Hello,


We deeply apologize on the delay and for any issues that may have arisen due to this.

CBX coin wallet is still under maintenance and will try our best to have it back soon.

Our technical support team is currently working on this to upgrade and do whatever is necessary to keep these issues from happening again.


I apologize there is no estimated time given from our tech support. All transactions will be posted in order once wallet is up.


Sorry for the delay and thank you kindly for your patience. Will keep you posted as soon as its back online.



 

Sincerely,

Michelle

Hey guys,
Not sure if it helps, but I do have 3 different CBX related product lines in inventory. 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver CGB bullion bars and 2 different style t-shirts. Should anyone from the community be interested in these products, I am willing to put all proceeds from their respective purchases into CBX buy orders. That would be $25 going into buy orders per bullion bar sold and $8 per order of t-shirt going into buy orders. Again, not sure if this helps but if you are interested in any of these products and want a little incentive to boost your CBX holdings, hopefully this helps.

I can only mine for 8-10 hours a day, because of noise (I live in a small area) so I'd only get about 8.6 but I am still happy as I can always get lucky and find a lot of blocks  ;D

Bought a CGB bar and a couple of t-shirts from finitebydesign myself a while back. Have to say the bar is beautifully made, and now with the re-brand from CGB to CBX, extremely rare also. T-shirts are very good quality and also collectors items in themselves.

Thanks F*D

Seriously, the work that BTCat produces in the advertising arena with literally no budget purely defies all of the known laws of the Universe! I don't know how you do what you do, but we are extremely fortunate to have you on our side! Thank you again for your contributions to the community!

Thanks Elambert. Really it isn't all that much, actually I wished I could do more but things are getting busier for me lately. But I will always try to find some moments to do things for CBX.
And if others have initiatives I'm happy to support it.

Congrats on the new shiny bullion bar BTCat, a very well deserved gift!

I was also wondering about the banner in your sig. Ive been wanting something like that myself CBX related. Tried using a couple of banner sites to put one together but they all spit out a code using image url's and they are not allowed on here for use in banners unfortunately.
Any pointers on how I can put one together or links to a guide? Cheers.

The banner is from a signaturecampaign so someone designs them. I guess you could get some examples from older campaigns you like.

Thank you BTCat, was hoping you had put it together yourself. Followed a few links and it seems a little knowledge of html is required to make one from scratch.

Am doing fine! Loving Bullion so far, look's to be a safe bet and I would be interested in working with the team  8)

We are always looking for community involvement! What is your skillset and how do you feel you could best contribute?

For one, I am very active, I am usually online 8-12 hours a day. Secondly, I have experience in preventing DDoS attacks (could be useful for a website, pool, node, etc), basic HTML, and I plan on creating a 0% fee pool.

Kyle, are you any good at making banners or signatures or whatever those things are at the bottom of BTCat's posts :)

Good news regarding Cryptsy...

Seems the wallet issue has been identified and resolved.

A few keys from frozen malicious accounts were causing the errors on their end so they have been removed.

Should be good going forward. Thank you all for your patience.

Hi guys,

I've just been having a chat with Elambert on the subject of reducing blockchain bloat. He pointed me towards Cryptonite and their Mini-Blockchain project (https://github.com/MiniblockchainProject/Cryptonite).

I've had a brief read over their solution and they are essentially discarding the contents of blocks once all funds in the block have been spent (sent on to another address). They retain only the block header/hash for spent blocks, which keeps the size of the blockchain file down. I had mentioned something along these lines to Elambert when we discussed this before and I still feel it's probably the best solution for us. I would like to offer the option of running either a full node (which retains all blocks in full) or a compact node (which prunes spent blocks and retains only the header/hash). We could also provide a means of incentivising the running of a full node in future (need to think on that some more).

I'm interested in your thoughts on this, or any other potential solutions that you may be aware of. Please share if you have an info or ideas.

On the subject of IRC Client integration in the CBX Vault Client, I've started work on this and I'm also considering a means of utilizing this for ad-hoc tipping. There will likely be instances where the IRC functionality is used to get technical support and assistance (from members of the CBX community) and a means of easily sending a small tip as a 'thank you' would be pretty neat I feel. I'm open to ideas on this too, so please feel free to share any ideas you have for this or the enhancements to the CBX Vault in general.

cheers,

raizor

Also, request for the community...

For those looking how they can assist in a non-technical manner:

1) Research project for someone who has a little bit of time. Would like to identify the uniquenesses exhibited by CBX in relation to the slew of other coins in the market place. Ex: I know there were at a time a few different coins employing the Hybrid algorithm (PoW/PoS) but many move to solely PoS as that was the flavor of the month. Are PPC and CBX the only ones still standing?

2) CHINA. This was a major target for us back in the tail end of 2013 but we never quite made it. We want someone from the community to step up and band with us to organize translations and assist us in injecting CBX into the Chinese markets.

Lots of discussion points and opportunities here from raizor and my recent posts. Please chime in after you read through and lets get this train up to speed again. Starting it takes the most effort but once up to speed, a train is hard to slow down or stop.

Still pending since my last post. Maybe I should of requested in smaller amounts I dunno.
Sent them a support message this morning, got the usual automated shrug of a response from cryptsy. Will follow it up when I finish work in a couple of hours.

Maybe someone could try a small withdrawal to see how that goes.

Edit. Here's the reply I got earlier.

Hello,

I am sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you.
The wallet was offline and just recently turned back on.
Your withdrawal should process shortly.
Thank you kindly for your patience and understanding.

I've requested a withdrawal of 20 CBX, Killiz. Will post back once there's some movement. I noticed earlier that Cryptsy had frozen trades globally for maintenance, so they may be doing some work that's holding things up.

Thanks raizor, I suspect the scenario mentioned by Digit a few days ago may be the cause, here is an explanation I've copied from reddit.

"A transaction is a set of inputs that get grouped together and form new outputs (usually the target address you are sending to and the remaining amount in a change address for which that your wallet knows the private keys). The old inputs are marked as spent (and gone forever) and those generated outputs are the now inputs for the addresses to which they were sent.
You can have 'almost' as many coins as you want in a given input, but if you have lots of tiny amounts then it can take many many inputs to add up to the number of coins you want to send. Each input that gets included in a transaction adds a little more to the transaction size.
What counts is the size (in bytes) of the transaction -> so more inputs tend to cost more as a fee -> and eventually it's just too large to include in a block -> that's what happened to you I expect...
So, the qt wallet will take all the inputs it can see on the blockchain for the addresses it knows the private keys to and make them appear as a nice logical singular balance and in general it does a good job of picking which inputs to use for your transaction -> but sometimes when there are lots and lots of inputs it's better to pick the inputs yourself...
If you turn on coin control (preferences or options or something like that) then on the send screen you will see a button to select inputs. Here you can select which inputs to use and see the size of the transaction (in bytes) and if you have some larger transactions -> by selecting a larger one to use up most of the total you want to send and then adding smaller ones until you cross the total you can probably get a size small enough to make a valid transaction.
For cases where there are lots of transactions leading to many small inputs we usually run separate solutions to merge the little ones into fewer inputs with more coins in each one (mining wallets/pools/exchanges) sometimes with scripts and sometimes custom software.
I don't know why we don't have automatic consolidation routines (merge tiny inputs into larger ones in the background) in the normal wallets, but there are people that want to make it harder to trace transactions -> and while there is a little merit in that approach it does lead to awkward situations like yours at times.
"

I could probably wait until the majority of small imputs in cryptsys wallet have been used in smaller withdrawal transactions, and there is more meat for larger ones, as I believe this will correct itself in time if this is the case. But I'm going to ask them to cancel my withdrawal so I can send out in smaller increments and hopefully chew through a good pile of dust in doing so.

Raizor, IRC integration, allowing users instant communication and support between each other will be an invaluable addition to the client IMO. With added tipping, all the better!

When you say 'The option for running a full node, or a compact node' do you mean the user will have the option of downloading a full node client, or a compact client? I feel for some users using laptops or older PC's with less storage, the option of a compact client would increasingly be necessary as time goes by.
Although I've been a PC user myself for many years, with the advance of mobile technology, I'm finding myself using my mobile phone more than I use my computer these days. Maybe in the near future a phone app would be a good idea so those who don't own, or spend little time on a computer can hold and use CBX too.

Also I had an idea for the Vault to maybe include a file encryption option. As it is a vault, maybe not only CBX could be stored with it.

Elambert, first coin I googled. Novacoin. Still uses POW. I pay little attention to most other alts, but when I have some time over the weekend (It's a bank holiday weekend here in the UK  ;D) I will try to find some time to dig a little deeper.

What I find unique to CBX is the fact that, eventually, when serious investment comes in when crypto-currencies are on the cusp of becoming a part of every day life, used by millions of merchants and billions of people. CBX will stand out above all others as an honest, fair and rare commodity, with a great fundamentals and a great history.

Hi guys.

I would like to ask some assistance with ideas for the CBX video. It would be fun if community members can give their input and have some discussion going at the same time.
 
So I've gathered some text from the website as example. The script is most important to have done well since it will be the foundation. This is first stage (1.1 - 1.6).
Second stage is to gather ideas for visualisation, how to put it in pictures. Do we use text on screen or voice-over, what are the best illustrations to show when, etc. (let's call it 2.1 - 2.6)

Please concidder it should be as short and essential as possible. Below text fits in about 50 seconds but there should be room for music/athmosphere.
So anyone who likes, please contribute and thanks in advance. I've numbered the paragraphs for easy discussion.

-------------------------------

1.1 CryptoBullion (CBX) is a cryptographic secure peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that allows people to send money to anyone all around the globe. It was first introduced in June 2013.

1.2 CryptoBullion is Exceptionally RARE with less than 1 million CBX in circulation and 2% Maximum Annual Inflation. It is Interest Bearing, has Fast Transaction Speeds, PoW/PoS Hybrid Security, Active Dedicated Development Team and Community.

1.3 CryptoBullion is a descendant of Bitcoin and Peercoin but employs an advanced security model, which is more efficient and more secure. It is designed to emulate the properties and supply of gold while providing the bearer with interest.

1.4 [ A call for action ]

Looking good BTCat, hope we can get some interaction going on this project - would be a good one. Also, perhaps target a Chinese translation version as well - I know that is a target market.

One suggestion I have after a quick read is to clarify in 1.2 the the inflation is maximum of 2% per year (or annual inflation). I know some get confused on this so never hurts to specify. I agree this is one of CBX strengths and a high point of interest for me personally.

Also, I received your PM and will be sending your bar out as soon as possible. I apologize for the delay with the forums being down.

Hello guys.

My 2 Satoshi's worth of ideas for video.

Text headers for each of your points with a voice over explaination for each in a little more detail.
Visualisation of an open vault with stacks of gold bullion bars inside.
Camera slowly zooming into the vault throughout the video until at the end a close up of of one of the bars reveals it is made up of a matrix of 1's and 0's. With a slogan at this point

Crypto Bullion
Virtually Solid Gold

Keep the ideas coming guys please! This is a perfect project for the community to collaborate on!

One thing I would like to add is with regard to using the word 'virtual'. I think we should refrain from using this term even though per some of its definitions 'carried out, accessed, or stored by means of a computer, especially over a network' it is accurate, however, others can be misleading. Some of the synonyms that can be misleading (and I worry how this term translates for these reasons) are 'simulated, artificial, make-believe'.

Thank you, no need to apologize at all, I appreciate the effort.
I've added 'Annual' to the text if this is what you meant.
Chinese translation is a good suggestion too. We'll need to decide after a first version then I can see if it would require extra funds or if it can be done easy. It may well be a good investment to reach out there.

Thanks.
I think we need to look for the key sellingpoints mostly and squeeze out the most important qualities, as in the term 'less is more'. The textheader is a good idea we can play with graphically. We can gather suggestions for text per paragraph? Example:
1.1 What is CryptoBullion
1.2 Why invest in CryptoBullion
1.3 Exceptionally Rare
1.4 Store CryptoBullion

We already had idea for a Vault and definately goldbars, plus some electrochips/energy transmission or other ways to 'digitize' it. The vault may be too difficult, the animator already said he couldn't make it. We would need to purchase a 3D vaultdesign or borrow a design without copyrights.

I agree with Elambert that virtual is not a clear expression and quickly associates with virtual world with objects and such. Digital Precious Metal I think is a great slogan/statement.

1.3 CryptoBullion is a descendant of Bitcoin and Peercoin but employs an advanced security model, which is more efficient and more secure. It is designed to emulate the properties and supply of gold while providing the bearer with interest.

I think this can be improved, mainly because bearing interest is mentioned in 1.2 already.

example "It is designed as a store of value to emulate the properties and supply of gold."

Agree on removal of redundancy.


Suggestion for 1.1

Quote
1.1 CryptoBullion (CBX) is a cryptographic secure peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that allows people to send money to anyone all around the globe. It was first introduced in June 2013.

Suggestion for consideration:
1.1 CryptoBullion (CBX), first introduced in June of 2013, is a secure peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that removes dependence on third parties by empowering its owners.

Keep the ideas coming guys please! This is a perfect project for the community to collaborate on!

One thing I would like to add is with regard to using the word 'virtual'. I think we should refrain from using this term even though per some of its definitions 'carried out, accessed, or stored by means of a computer, especially over a network' it is accurate, however, others can be misleading. Some of the synonyms that can be misleading (and I worry how this term translates for these reasons) are 'simulated, artificial, make-believe'.





Yea I see your point. Virtual doesn't translate too well and can be mistaken for something of no existence or of fantasy.

I still think the slogan has room for improvement. Something catchy. It doesn't even have to have any relation to cbx itself. Just a hook to catch attention and stick in the mind. What's everyone think?

1.3 Using both bitcoin and Peercoin technology to create an advanced and efficient security model. Crypto Bullion is designed to mimic the rarity and supply of gold, without the limits of holding a physical commodity.

Off to work, back later, take care everyone

Agreed, virtual does not sound good.


In my opinion this coin (CBX) has everything to succeed, yet you have to put yourself in investor's shoes to make it an attractive place to put his money (you once claimed this was "the investor's coin").

This coin needs more visibility. Chinese exposure would help, but this is only one aspect.

Also a meaningful PoS reward would help (1.5% is irrelevant - 3-5% yearly would be more appealing)

Guys these are all good; at this point worrying about where to put a comma or which word to add is not the best spent energy for this coin. Other (successful) coins have very weak slogans.

If nobody comes to the site, it doesn't matter what is shown on it. The site is nice as it is, we need to bring people to it.

Shape Shift,

I am the founder of the crypto-currency/commodity known as Crypto Bullion (CBX) - "The Digital Precious Metal".

Crypto Bullion was launched in June of 2013 so it is one of the oldest coins in existence. CBX is a PoW/PoS Hybrid that has completed its primary distribution and inflationary stage. With less than 1 million coins in circulation, CBX can only grow by a maximum of 2% per year between PoW mining (.5%) and PoS interest (1.5%). We have a solid and dedicated team and target a market niche - low mint, low inflation coin investors.

Our team is constantly working on improving Crypto Bullion and have some game changing updates coming. This coin will be an excellent addition to your platform for clients trading and investment portfolios and has lots of room to grow.

CBX hit an all-time high price point in December of 2013 at over $5 per coin but is currently trading at an enormous discount of 5 cents per coin - so there is a great opportunity to gain a potential 100x on investment.

Our primary trading platform is Cryptsy (US based). We would love the additional exposure to your users.

How can we team up and have Crypto Bullion listed on shapeshift.io?

Here is our website for additional information:

Looking forward to hearing back from you...

Chris 'elambert'

Similar technical coding changes have been applied to CBX in the past, only to be met with less and less investor interest, and falling price.

Technically, CBX is already flawless, it's a gem, it's perfect. Let's not touch it.

What I would like to see is a strategy to make CBX seen more, a better marketing approach.

Technicalities won't help.


Hello my old friend!
Thank you for your thoughtful and thorough feedback. It is appreciated and I do agree with you for the most part as usual :)

Its nice to see such a civilized community with gentlemanly leadership, as we can see in CBX. Thank you for the warm greeting: I am old, but not that old: just older than you ;-)

I pop back in this thread from time to time; last time I quit intervening as I had to let you try what you felt you had to try, with the disappointing results we see today (price is everything - CB price will guide how useful our coin will ever be). I am always watching CBX, have kept my position and added some to it; and now it seems I have your attention. I still see a great opportunity for CBX, but we are going to have to: (1) bend some old rules, (2) review your 3 stage plan with an open mind; and (3) add a bit of marketing elbow grease to the equation. I think some elements of your 3 stage plan can help, but overall I do not like it.

Good job for the web site guys; it is really nice and we can certainly work with this; this was useful.

I come from two areas where my experience can be applied to a quality Crypto such as our CBX - marketing and financial markets.

Yes, I will keep bringing up the fact that the low income rate of CBX is not helping its cause: it is based on the false economic assumption that maintaining an ultra low inflation and  austerity will translate into rarity and value - PoS could be doubled - without notable effect on price while bringing back miners on board. I warned you about low PoW interest of miners and its effect, now it seems we have to spend 10 BTC to fix this, and this was avoidable (still is). I like the low inflation and small monetary base of CBX, this makes it an easy to fix situation right now - I like low inflation, just not that low.

I really liked the 1 minute blocks of CBX; I feel the 10 minute time of BTC is a problem when sending coin - it just takes forever and I see this as a problem with BTC. As for the blockchain getting too big, sorry but why is this a problem all of a sudden? Now merge mining and moving towards SHA256 makes me feel we are surrendering. I like my CB to remain independant, people will want to merge with CB, not the other way around.

This is all I can say publicly; let's work together if you will let me in (and listen to my points).

Yes, we are reliant on donations for project funding. These would most likely come from owners of CBX that have a vested interest although we hope as well that others will take advantage of this opportunity of a low price point for CBX and invest in some for themselves and also invest in the development effort to result in a net gain as we grow. The incentive to new investors for contributing would come on the back end of their associated CBX purchases.

I know that some had reported problems experienced with withdrawing larger amounts of CBX from Cryptsy. Just wanted to report I successfully withdrew a sizable chunk. Took about 12 hours which is certainly not ideal, but it worked.

June 1, 2015 Announcement – Community Support Needed

Please note that this is an edit to our May 29th announcement that has better streamlined the technical project plans and added in a new team member appointment.

First we would like to welcome VonSpass to the team as our Marketing Strategy Director! VonSpass brings professional experience in marketing and financial markets to the table and will be in charge of spearheading Crypto Bullion's marketing campaign (much more to come on this). Welcome!

Secondly, The CBX Core Team is proud to announce some ambitious development plans to unfold in the coming months. We are confident that when executed, these developments along with our new marketing plan will catapult CBX back into the top tier of crypto coins and redefine it as the premier crypto-currency/commodity that fully fills the niche of a distributed, low mint, low inflation storage of wealth – truly ‘The Digital Precious Metal’.

The technical portion of our plan has been reviewed and consolidated to 1 distinct stage (outlined in our to be released white paper), requiring a hard fork. The estimated time for development is 2-4 months. Our lead developer, raizor has the skill-set to implement this evolution of CBX as he has evidenced in his top-notch work already contributed to the project, but it will take a significant amount of his time.

We are reaching out to the current Crypto Bullion community, and any who care to come along for the ride to help in making this project come to fruition. We have set a target fund raising goal of 20 BTC (10 BTC for technical development and 10 BTC for marketing). This is a great opportunity for each individual to take ownership of the project and help to control the resurgence of CBX. CBX hit an all-time high in December of 2013 of over $5 per coin so it has shown the ability to grow 100x its current price.

* Hard Fork: 2-4 months development / Cost 10 BTC
Fork 1: Remove PoW completely. Fortify PoS Security by removing coinage and rewarding active nodes. Max annual PoS (2% per year * total coin supply) will be distributed among coins actively staking. (White paper to be released soon)

Additional Updates/Features that raizor has committed to:
a)   IRC incorporation into CBX client (update coming soon)
b)   CBX Marketplace incorporated into CBX client (tbd)

Elambert has already kick started the development fund with a 1 BTC investment. Our friends at Finite By Design have committed to also add a 1 BTC donation bringing us to 10% of our goal. Please consider supporting this project by donating to BTC Address: 1D1oyugjRQFAyJ9sRYBvWS2aUbJ9KnUsVG (https://blockchain.info/address/1D1oyugjRQFAyJ9sRYBvWS2aUbJ9KnUsVG)

We are excited to move forward with this project. Join us and lets take Crypto Bullion back to the top tier of crypto-currencies.

No worries, the only new CBX coins will be Staking rewards. Scrypt PoW was a necessary evil to fairly distribute CBX early on, but it is seen today as a costly waste of energy and costly arms race to buy mining equipment.

No SHA256 and no more Scrypt as per latest announcement: network security will rely on those who stake, and payout will be proportional to the amount of CBX present in staking wallets.

~ CBX Core Team


Thank you for the warm welcome;

I think it is still true in 2015 that Crypto-Currencies are the uncharted lands of the present, and some will represent life changing potential gains for those who commit themselves and accept to put in a bit of effort or invest a little money; CBX was created with a strong and sound ideological foundation and today aspires to become a major currency that even people from outside the crypto-currency economy one day will want to own.

The current CBX team is (has always been) very dedicated to bringing you the best possible software and network integrity to lay the foundation of a solid coin.  My job, as Marketing Strategy Director will now allow CBX to pursue a new, until now unapproached, dimension: all aspects that will make CBX seen and accepted more, first in the Crypto-Currency community and second, in the regular economy (where widespread awareness will be pursued, in good time).


There are many reasons to like CBX, our Crypto Bullion; but soon the inital community we form today will like it even more. To be fair to everyone, I hereby disclose to the universe that I am in the process of acquiring a significant amount of CBX, at today's basement bargain prices (thank you so much, to all dear sellers, for this unique opportunity!) - so you can be assured this stake will keep me committed and highly motivated to the success of CBX.

Today's opportunity: 200$ investment today buys you almost 5 000 CBX, which is 1/2% of all current monetary mass of CBX, again thank you all sellers.

Also, I have contributed my 1 BTC to our cause towards the development fund - sometimes you have to spend a little to earn a lot (tx d278930b30a25437ff3993e82ef8c395615667839f3bb8d5b601eace13cbd31d ). I believe this 1 BTC I am donating to this fund will come back to me multiplied many times fold. I encourage all CBX family members and believers to do the same.

I will announce shortly many new available marketing positions. There is much work to do.

Your point is well understood Kyle1836, thank you. The current dilemma with mining (sha, scrypt, whatever algo) is that what is best for the coin (high hashrate) is NOT what is best for your everyday solo-miner. The solo-miner however is the key to decentralization and the high hashrate is provided by mining farms that become more and more centralized daily.

Our distribution strategy is to favor the solo-miner and the concept of decentralization but if necessary for security, we could cater secondarily to mining farms. As was outlined, this would have meant to allow 25% of newly minted coins to be generated by the mining farm entities while the major remaining share of 75% being allotted for those who simply owned some CBX and kept their vault running to help further secure the network.

After some intense deep-dive discussions, the conclusion was reached that our proposed PoS innovation and implementation run without any PoW would be the best solution by providing the desired vault-like maximal network security, while removing the small fraction that would have catered to the mining farms and their journey to centralization. Hence the move to abandon PoW completely in lieu of Proof-of-Stake-Participation (a brand new security/distribution model created specifically for CBX). Lets give the full 100% reward for protecting the network to the solo-miner types who can mint coins simply by owning one, downloading the CBX vault and connecting via the internet - no mining equipment arms-race, no extreme waste of resources.

Of course until the point of implementation, scrypt mining will continue so feel free to take advantage of this opportunity Kyle1836. We are doing our best to keep you and the rest of the decentralized population in mind as we progress into the future.

Thank you for your involvement.

Finite By Design would like to assist however we can in this fundraising event and if no one has any objections, we would like to donate up to 5 1-troy ounce of .999 fine silver, unloaded  'Cryptogenic Bullion' bars (retail at $75 each plus shipping and handling) to be used as gifts for every BTC donated. (For those new to CBX, Cryptogenic Bullion (CGB) was the name prior to rebranding.)

A small batch of 50 of these proof struck bullion bars was created with only an inventory of 16 left in stock. They are rare like CBX itself and can be loaded with CBX by the owner/collector (10 CGB/CBX face value).

Basically will work like this:
1) Donate 1BTC to the CBX development fund
2) Have the CBX team confirm receipt, validate that it was from you and give f*D the green-light
3) Provide f*D with your shipping address
4) We will ship a CBX bullion bar to you!

Open CBX team position - China liaison agent

China is a big market in the Crypto-currency universe as we all know, and at this moment we are not really talking to them. I think we should work on CBX awareness in China: we need someone who fluently speaks the Mandarin language, who will help translate crucial parts of the website and also negociate with chinese crypto exchanges to have CBX listed there.

Open CBX team position: Russian liaison agent

Russia is going through economic hardship and the Ruble is under much pressure.  The Crypto-currency market provides a very smart value protection option for Russians so I would like CBX to extend its digital arm to Russia as well. My russian is not that great, so we need help to translate crucial parts of the website to the russian language, as well as keeping an online presence in Russian crypto forums.

давайте! нам нужна ваша помощь...

Please PM me if you are interested.

There is a nice chunk of 2000 CBX asking only 0.00024453 or .5 BTC on special at Cryptsy. Great chance for anyone to get a significant participation in this hot market...

When buying at unfair basement low prices, to make sure you do not ruin your Karma always have a thankful thought for the generous seller.


I am leaving this opportunity to the community; in a few hours if these CBX are still available I guess I will have to oblige.

...... Hence the move to abandon PoW completely in lieu of Proof-of-Stake-Participation (a brand new security/distribution model created specifically for CBX). Lets give the full 100% reward for protecting the network to the solo-miner types who can mint coins simply by owning one, downloading the CBX vault and connecting via the internet ...



Roughly how long will it be until you swap to using Proof-of-Stake-Participation?

I have known some proof of stake coins to have networks that almost froze because nobody was staking. Are there new concepts in Proof-of-Stake-Participation that encourage people to stake?

Right now we are securing funding in order to have the resources necessary to begin the project. We have 3 BTC so far donated so we are on the way but a bit of a ways to go still. Once funding is secured, we anticipate 2-4 months for coding and extensive testing before launch.

Yes, there are new concepts in PoSP that will encourage people to stake. The algo is ALL about staking - encouraging staking is what this algo is specifically designed for as this is what secures the network. Security is #1 priority. The last thing we will have to worry about is people staking, trust in that.

Hello all,
Raizor has been hard at work with the IRC integration into the Vault and is making some nice progress. Still work to be done, but we do have a functioning implementation to test and fine tune for future public release. The more I think about this feature, the more excited I am about it. It truly is a convenient way to bring the community together. While your in your Vault staking, sending or receiving funds - you will have the luxury to visit with others in the community as well as to receive live tech support. Good stuff coming, great work Raizor!

Here is a little screen shot teaser:

Reminder

Finite By Design would like to assist however we can in this fundraising event and if no one has any objections, we would like to donate up to 5 1-troy ounce of .999 fine silver, unloaded  'Cryptogenic Bullion' bars (retail at $75 each plus shipping and handling) to be used as gifts for every BTC donated. (For those new to CBX, Cryptogenic Bullion (CGB) was the name prior to rebranding.)

A small batch of 50 of these proof struck bullion bars was created with only an inventory of 16 left in stock. They are rare like CBX itself and can be loaded with CBX by the owner/collector (10 CGB/CBX face value).

Basically will work like this:
1) Donate 1BTC to the CBX development fund
2) Have the CBX team confirm receipt, validate that it was from you and give f*D the green-light
3) Provide f*D with your shipping address
4) We will ship a CBX bullion bar to you!

Diamond has 50% yearly interest, that's quite an incentive to collect a lot. But also high risk to get dumped on longerterm.
Better stay with the Bullion :)

Happy Friday, Crypto Bullion community; to me this is the best day of the week!

Many new projects are coming up for our CBX, and this explains the recent CBX upwards price readjustment; perhaps some new investors jumped in, ahead of the biggest gains. These projects will create demand for CBX, and we know this will have a major impact mid-term. 

We are all here for the long run, with aim to materalize Crypto Bullion's goal: to be the ultimate crypto store of value.

On another note, I am still looking for chinese and russian translators from the community, please if you know these languages we need your help!

Hello all,
We are in early discussion, but it appears we may have found our guy to assist us with entry to China, translation services, etc. More to come on this soon. In the interim, we would like to get the community to start pushing to get CBX added to Bter. CBX is listed on their voting page (currently as our old name CGB - Cryptogenic Bullion) so we have a head start already. I have requested Bter to update their info in accordance with rebranding.

https://bter.com/voting

Thank you in advance.

- Another 1 BTC donation has been verbally committed to the development fund
- Proof of Stake Participation development coding has officially begun! Down-payment of 4 BTC and 2,200 CBX has been paid from the foundation. The 5 BTC balance still due will be paid upon completion.
- If you support and hold CBX and can donate to help out with development, please do. Again, we are looking to secure 20 BTC total for coding and advertising. We have secured 7 BTC so far so still a way to go.

The team is working very hard on a number of projects and more announcements will be rolling out.

Received a Bullion and T-shirt package as well, so thanks a lot. It's great to feel the weight in the bar and I imagine they will become quite rare.

I've already let know to have pledged 1 BTC towards the video just before the campaign launched. When I can afford it better I will contribute towards the fund. In the meantime I hope others will join in and give their support as well so that the goals can be reached. This will add much more value to CBX so it's well worth the investment. Thanks.

CBX has always had a sound fundamental base; price had gone down due to thin trading and lack of interest for all cryptos in general. The new increased price we see today is a reflection of the potential of our new approach towards CBX. Crypto-currencies will consolidate, and many frivolous coins' entire blockchains will disappear without backup pretty soon; while other coins will thrive - yes, we are here for the long term!

We attack two fronts: awareness and usefulness... an approach we feel will turn CBX into one of the main cryptos very soon!

Good news first:
We have established contact with Bter and managed to get them to change CBX's name on their voting page in accordance with the official renaming so you can now vote for Crypto Bullion (CBX) as apposed to voting for the old name (Cryptogenic Bullion - CGB).

Not so good news:
Bter inexplicably made the decision to remove all votes that had been accumulated.

I have made a post in their thread here at Bitcointalk and will reach out through other means of communication as well with the hope of getting them to return the votes. Assistance from the community is greatly appreciated in this endeavor.

Here is the link to my note left for them on their thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=280806.msg11691182#msg11691182

Hello Bter,

Thank you for your assistance in renaming Cryptogenic Bullion (CGB) to Crypto Bullion (CBX) on your voting page in accordance with the coins renaming - this is appreciated.

However, it does not seem fair that the 2,400+ votes the this coin had already fairly received have been cleared out and the coin is now forced to start again from zero votes. The votes were all fairly earned through your BTR based voting system and in accordance with your rules so it feels wrong to have them taken away.

We are encouraging the Crypto Bullion community to start using Bter and to assist with getting CBX added but do not want the community to feel as if they will be treated unfairly over at Bter.

Can you please reconsider this decision and add back the earned votes?

Sincerely,
Chris 'elambert'

Hi shveicar. Yes, disk load is something we are looking at improving. During initial sync of the blockchain, the wallet/daemon does access the drive a lot. I expect we can allocate more memory to the database engine which should reduce the problem considerably. I will post here when I have looked into the problem some more and devised a solution.

In relation to the screenshot you posted, the large number of file handles is due to the way the LevelDB database engine works. We can limit the number of open files but it will likely reduce performance. Are you having problems other than lots of disk access?

Thanks,

raizor

Community Action Opportunity:

If you are a member of the CryptoBullion family/community and want to help, here is an opportunity where every individual can make an impact.

As we have outlined previously, the Chinese market has been targeted as an important area for CBX to gain entry. We have made strides with this objective by bringing on a team member that is based in China to assist with communication barriers and guidance and have had the front page of the website translated for starters.

We will start a thread to establish a presence on the primary cryptocurrency forum used by the Chinese (8BTC) and are actively searching out paid advertising opportunities. Additional to this, of course listing on Chinese trading platforms is necessary. One of the major players is Bter.

CryptoBullion was listed on the voting page of Bter under our old name (Cryptogenic Bullion) which had accumulated over 2400 votes. We had Bter change to our new name and symbol to avoid confusion, however, in the process they decided to remove the already accumulated votes. What we would like from the community is 2 fold: 1. contact Bter and ask them to return the previously earned votes to CBX and 2. start casting votes for CBX to be added.

Your contribution to either or both of these tasks will be very helpful. Remember, the hardest part is building up the momentum for change and that is what is in front of us. So if you have a couple of minutes, please help out.

Below is a brief outline of the steps I have taken so far - feel free to use these or other ideas you have to achieve the same goals. Please be mindful to be respectful in your communications.

Regarding Bter voting issue:
* PM sent to owner of Bter thread (freeworm)
* post in Bter Bitcointalk thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=280806.msg11691182#msg11691182
* ticket submitted at Bter (#18318)
* sent email to Bter support (support@mail.bter.com) - copy below
* registered to start trading at Bter to get involved with voting process

Bter requires an account that has actively traded approx 0.2 BTC before they will allow you to vote.

I'm making some transfers as we speak so hopefully it won't be too long before I am able to vote (not sure what trades I will like yet).

Bter looks like a pretty good exchange, I hope they return our old votes and we can get a foothold there.

BTC38 looks like a good one also, the Digitalcoin volume there recently has been huge, much higher than on Cryptsy.

Thanks for looking into Bter and providing feedback info. I have not had the opportunity to start trading there yet but working on it as well. No response as of yet to my numerous inquiries requesting the return of our earned votes but hopefully if we stay persistent, they will give in (or at least respond lol).

I did reach out to BTC38 personally and they said they would have a look at Crypto Bullion, fwiw. Jubi is another exchange that Jimmy has contacted regarding CBX...

I think we will make the most headway with pressuring Chinese exchanges as we get our thread launched on 8BTC and spread some info on CBX - also planning some giveaways over there to get people downloading and trying out the Vault.

Getting the ball rolling with our present community is certainly the starting point though.

I don't seem to be getting any BTR points for my trades, not sure why. I'll make some more trades but I have already traded more than the 0.2 BTC that they say should give me enough BTR points to be able to vote.

Anyone know where I might be going wrong?

Happy Birthday CBX!

For those of you starting trading on Bter for BTR points, from what I understand, if you make a withdrawal from Bter you will lose your points.

I am also given to understand that while the first 1000 BTR gives 1 vote per hour, subsequent votes (up to 10 per hour) are earned at the rate of  roughly 3000 BTR per vote ( so ~30k BTR for 10 votes per hour).

I think I had to do about 0.5 btc's worth of trade for my 1000 BTR, but I suspect that for some reason my first few trades didn't earn any BTR, not sure why.

When you do what triggers BTR points, you get them instantly. Personally, I transfered .3 BTC to Bter, changed it back and forth a few times to CNY and back to BTC. This cost me some dust but I now have the 1000 BTR's required to vote, so now I can vote once per hour.

BTER seems a well done and responsive GUI exchange. Getting our CBX listed under CNY markets will add a lot of visibility to Crypto Bullion, and tie in well with the new 8BTC thread Jimmy is promoting for us.

I would like to put forward the following proposal for fellow holders of Crypto Bullion (CBX) to act upon.

Let us each start to back our own CBX holdings with real physical bullion, as 'Proof-of-CBX'.

Anyone holding CBX and some quantity of physical bullion or precious metals is able to participate.

An individual could back any denomination of CBX with any quantity of physical bullion that they own. The most important principal being that the individual owns both assets.

You would simply upload a photo of the physical bullion together with your CBX wallet address (including a signed verifiable message) and your forum username, as one image.

For example;

"I (insert your forum name) hereby back (x amount of CBX) with (x amount of physical bullion).

I understand that if I should divest either my CBX and/or physical bullion holding then this statement is considered null and void.

Furthermore, I endeavor to provide seperate notification if this personal holding is divested."


Of course, the quantity or type of physical bullion and/or amount of CBX being backed is actually not important.

In other words it does not matter if an individual chooses to back 10 Oz of copper with 1000 CBX whilst another individual might back 1 gram of gold with 0.0001 CBX


The action of backing CBX with any physical quantity of bullion (on an individual basis) should help with increased price discovery and awareness.

Comparing such data with live metals prices would provide an amalgamted bullion value for CBX, in addition to its crypto currency value.


In practice 1 Oz fine silver or gold coins are within easy reach of most investors and are probably a good starting point in terms of value against the current price of CBX.

What does it mean 'to back CBX' in this case. Shouldn't someone be able to exchange their CBX for the assets backing it?

And if someone exchanges his CBX for gold doesn't he just purchase gold with CBX as currency?

Or is it more meant hypothetical.

 :D

No 3rd party exchange is taking place and their is no counterparty risk.

I'm simply suggesting that people could back their personal physical bullion holdings with thier own CBX and present this action publically, on the blockchain.

It's a bit like issuing a gold certificate to yourself: https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_certificate

This process turns an unallocated (fungible) asset into an allocated (non-fungible) asset, which is also publically verifiable.

Most crypto bullion enthusiasts are likely to own some physical gold or sliver that they could easily use to personally and publically 'back' their own CBX holdings, both in part or in full.

So, lets imagine that I back 10 CBX with 1 Oz of fine silver and you back 1 CBX with 5 Oz of fine silver.

11 CBX is now backed by 6 Oz of fine silver having a value of x in whatever currency.

Now factor in many other individuals doing the very same thing and backing CBX using varying quantities of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, nickle and copper - coins and bars etc., all being publically verifiable.

x number of CBX is now backed by x worth of fully decentralized physical bullion.


The provision of goods and services (as well as exchange platforms) helped to build and establish the bitcoin economy.

Being rarer than bitcoin and presenting itself as a 'store-of-value, CBX as asset based commodity money should seek to establish seperate and additonal price discovery through other means.

Hi BitcoinFX! I still have some of your USBs...

I like your idea but curious how this really would work to add value to my CBX and my precious metals? The public announcement to tie 2 of these together would not be enforceable and could be easily broken correct?

Hey FiniteByDesign! I'll send you a PM.

Glad that you like this concept.

The best way to look at this in terms of adding value I think is to recognize that any participating entity must hold both CBX and precious metal. Both of these things probably being a very good idea in principal and in practice.

Being a cryptographically signed message and therefore verifiable on the blockchain, manual or automated verification that the CBX holding still remains is ofc possible via a block explorer. So, if the amount of CBX for the public address is ever spent below the represented amount then the individual 'backing' can be considered to be divested and is delisted from the spread sheet and/or blockchain / application database.

One of the only potential issues with this is double or multiple representation of an individual bullion holding against multiple CBX addresses. However, holdings could be represented in to two or more categories i.e. certificated (numbered) proof-of-bullion vs non-certificated (proof-of-weight) etc.,

Whilst most economists would probably argue that this issue presents us with a quandry not disimilar to that of Gresham's law - https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Gresham's_law (https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Gresham's_law) - remember that this is being proposed only on a fully decentralized basis.

As described in social sciences the proposed action of backing our own CBX is with individual 'agency' - https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Structure_and_agency (https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Structure_and_agency) - "Agency is the capacity of individuals to act independently and to make their own free choices."

Furthermore, within a free market it is equally important not to set the ratio of CBX to x precious metal, but to leave this action up to the individual to determine for themselves.

July 2, 2015 'State of the Bullion' Address:

Hello to the Crypto Bullion community!

We have a lot that has transpired since our last formal announcement and things are moving along in a positive direction for CBX as reflected in our month over month USD valuation (5 cents per CBX last month, now over 20 cents per CBX). Although this is a substantial 400% increase in price and is very exciting, we are still very early in our ambitious plans and significantly shy of our short-term and long-term targets.

TEAM:
We have added 2 new members to our team (http://cryptobullion.io/team/) since our last announcement. Alex “RainbowDash” has joined us as our Online Services Expert and has hit the ground running. His primary points of focus so far have been working on setting up a CBX price ticker and faucet, which are both very close to release. Jimmy “JimmyZhu” has joined our team as our Liaison to China. Jimmy has already translated the front page of the website to Mandarin, started and is managing a CBX thread on the primary Chinese cryptocurrency forum 8BTC and is working on translating the CBX Vault (client) so our next release will be more user friendly for our Chinese users. (We are working on one other team addition at the present to fill our Investor Relations Officer position - we will provide more details on this appointment shortly.) Welcome!

DEVELOPMENT:
We have outlined our technical development plan at a high level regarding our upcoming hard fork that will be explained in detail with its accompanying white paper. Basically PoW will be removed and CBX will operate via PoS exclusively. The inflationary rate will stay at 2% per year, however the current PoS implementation will be replaced by our new PoSP system that is now under development. This system will reward only those actively staking and in such a way that it will maximize network security via a pay-for-work methodology that allows for a variable interest earnings rate reflective of network participation. With this new design, those actively securing the CBX network will find an opportunity to earn a substantially higher interest rate on their holdings while the overall inflationary rate remains a constant 2% per annum. We are confident the PoSP implementation will be a game changer and are very excited about releasing it to the public in the near future.

FUNDING:
We have reached out to the current Crypto Bullion community, and any who care to come along for the ride to help in funding our technical developments as well as our substantial marketing campaigns that will accompany them. We have set a target fund raising goal of 20 BTC (10 BTC for technical development and 10 BTC for marketing). This is a great opportunity for each individual to take ownership of the project and help to control the resurgence of CBX.

So far we have collected donations totaling 11 BTC (4 of which are already allocated to our technical development PoSP project) so we are more than half way to our goal.

Please consider supporting this project by donating to BTC Address: 1D1oyugjRQFAyJ9sRYBvWS2aUbJ9KnUsVG (https://blockchain.info/address/1D1oyugjRQFAyJ9sRYBvWS2aUbJ9KnUsVG)

Thank you to all who have supported this project historically and recently. We have a lot of work ahead of us but we welcome the challenge and are enthusiastic about the future.

~ CBX Core Team

Bravo!

This is the single most exciting thing I have read in over a year form any crypto community posting, I think you guys have hit the nail on the head with the following, seriously guys some REALLY good decisions made here - CBX for the win!

A substantial 500% increase in price - Well that's impressive for a start!

TEAM:

Alex “RainbowDash” has joined us as our Online Services Expert and has hit the ground running - Brilliant news, welcome!

Jimmy “JimmyZhu” has joined our team as our Liaison to China - so important to diversify the CBX base

DEVELOPMENT:

PoW will be removed and CBX will operate via PoS exclusively - brilliant!

The inflationary rate will stay at 2% per year, however the current PoS implementation will be replaced by our new PoSP system that is now under development.

This is the absolute star of the show right here, Reddcoin was heading in this direction but seems to have fallen off the face of the earth. Moving to 100% PoSP will do the following:

+ Remove the barrier of expensive hardware/power for those wishing to take part in (and being rewarded for) securing the CBX network
+ Provide power efficient truly distributed secure network transaction verification (zero benefits for staking in a pool - no chance of 51% attacks)
+ Encourage 24/7 staking by providing a higher rate of return for those who contribute to network security continuously

The above 3 in unison will make CBX one of the most attractive coins out there, the limited supply will encourage saving and the price combined with the universal accessibility of staking will build one of the most secure coins in existence - with enough participation more secure that BTC itself.

Amazing work CBX - loading up my cold wallet as I type!  ;D ;D ;D

That was lovely to read, FR! I think I speak for us all in saying thank you for the continued support. There's still a way to go until we reach the summit, but we're making constant headway. I think supportive messages like these are a real boost to the CBX Team and it's always great to get some nice feedback from our friends in the community :)

Reddcoin did really seem to be going places a while back, but yes, it certainly seems to have stagnated lately. I'm not sure what's happened to Laudney, he doesn't seem to be around these days. PoSV and their future social plans sounded promising, but who knows how RDD will turn out.

I expect PoSP will be something of an ongoing project for the future, as there's a lot of potential for extending it. The ultimate goal is to allow full collaborative staking, so it would function as a P2P PoS mining pool in effect. I'm still going over a few of the technical challenges for the Whitepaper as we need to be mindful of any potential new attack vectors and ensure we cover them all. We're super excited about it too, and I think it could well be a real game-changer for us all. The supporting technology we have planned for PoSP also fits in very nicely with some of the new 'community' functionality we have planned for the wallet. I think the added bonus stake payouts we have in mind (to ensure the full 2% interest is awarded by the network) will prove to be very popular too!

I also can't help feeling that things are about the hot up considerably in crypto-land. If I tilt back my head and and sniff hard, I'm sure I can smell a whiff of rocket fuel on the wind ;)

cheers,

raizor

Thanks for all the posts, these are great contributions and keeps us moving. A whiff of rocket fuel on the wind, haha what did you eat.

Just reading back some of the thread to gather content for video. I know it's a bit slow process at the moment but we also need to include the latest technical developments that are going to be implemented. It will probably be a good idea to have it finished on the next release in a couple months. Nearly ready to start working with a video animator.



If nobody comes to the site, it doesn't matter what is shown on it. The site is nice as it is, we need to bring people to it.


To have more traffic to the site I suggest to add general cryptocurrency pages that are constantly updating/renewing with news from the industry.
We would need a few people who can access and place content almost daily and then we can promote that and more people will come.
I've send lots of tweets for awhile but if the site does not renew the effect diminishes.

I don't seem to be getting any BTR points for my trades, not sure why. I'll make some more trades but I have already traded more than the 0.2 BTC that they say should give me enough BTR points to be able to vote.

Anyone know where I might be going wrong?

EDIT: Scratch that, I now have a couple hundred BTR points, maybe they just take a while to get awarded

When you do what triggers BTR points, you get them instantly. Personally, I transfered .3 BTC to Bter, changed it back and forth a few times to CNY and back to BTC. This cost me some dust but I now have the 1000 BTR's required to vote, so now I can vote once per hour.

BTER seems a well done and responsive GUI exchange. Getting our CBX listed under CNY markets will add a lot of visibility to Crypto Bullion, and tie in well with the new 8BTC thread Jimmy is promoting for us.

Hypothetically, and if you lacked moral fibre, you could buy your own coins and take a loss of around $7.50 to get to 28500 BTR = 10 votes per hour. You could even open another account for another 10 votes.

Sometimes I have trouble sleeping at night.

CBX Marketing Update:

We are in discussion with Bitcoin PR Buzz regarding use of their service to extend our reach for sharing Crypto Bullion development news. We have begun writing an article for publishing that covers the now underway development of our unique algorithm, Proof-of-Stake-Participation (PoSP), which will replace our current Hybrid algorithm upon completion. This article will explain why we believe PoSP will be a game-changing development that fully maximizes the potential for security by providing a variable PoS compensation rate to adequately incentivize maximal consistent staking to protect the network; while at the same time allowing Crypto Bullion to stay true to its ultra-low 2% per year inflationary promise established over 2-years ago at inception.

This article will be targeted to the savvy investor who is looking for something revolutionary to come along in the crypto space where they can diversify some of their portfolio for speculation on future market growth. A second PR push will follow once PoSP is ready for release with its detailed accompanying white paper.

This PR service is pricey, but we feel the investment is warranted due to the nature and significance of what we have to share.

Again, as a decentralized and open-source project, the community owns Crypto Bullion. We have a core development team assembled of community members who have stepped up to contribute and support this project and have also begun a foundation fund established to pool together community funding to pay for technical developments and beneficial marketing opportunities that are selected.

Contributions in labor are encouraged as well as donations in BTC; which can be sent to our foundation fund address 1D1oyugjRQFAyJ9sRYBvWS2aUbJ9KnUsVG (https://blockchain.info/address/1D1oyugjRQFAyJ9sRYBvWS2aUbJ9KnUsVG).

Thanks,

Also, we are working on the finishing touches of a CBX faucet; when this project is completed there will be 3 CBX faucets.

Part of the awareness program, hopefully these faucets giving CBX for free will create a positive demand for CBX, along with bringing more people on board.

I will post the faucet's URL when it is completed!

But it will be POS only soon... Yep CBX has always worked solid and any issues arising usually solved super quickly, since mid 2013.

The day there is a pressrelease you can also submit it here for free at the moment: http://www.coindesk.com/press-releases/

Hi Guys,

Jimmy has today provided me with the Chinese translation set for the CBX wallet. I'd like to get this included in the next wallet release, alongside the PoSP fork and the new IRC chat functionality. I should have it plugged in soon, so I'll post a screenshot when the translations are in place :)

Thanks Jimmy!

cheers,

ps. Does anyone have any ideas for collective nouns we can use to refer to members of the CryptoBullion (CBX) community? Something like Doge has with 'Shibes'.

Heads is a pretty common one though so doubtful Redd would mind.

- Phish-heads
- Cheese-heads

Reddheads is a pretty good one though, credit where due.

Great stuff guys, really pleased with how things are going for CBX right now. CBX faucet is awesome!

I'm taking a short break from Bter voting while I move house, will get back into the swing of it in a day or two. Looks like it will be slow going in the top 15 but we will get there. Any idea how often they add coins? It seems to be not very often, just judging by how many votes the top coins have accumulated.

I wondered the same thing and went through their twitter feed to try to determine. I only saw 2 coins added in 2015 and I do not think either of them were vote based - so doesn't seem like it happens very often. Regardless of this, we should keep voting as much as possible. As we continue to grow as a community, value and volume will climb. If we are high on the voting list as PoSP is released, I think it will be a no brainer for Bter to add CBX - just my opinion.

Lets keep at whats in front of us and the pieces will come together :)

https://www.whaleclub.co/signals

You mean to build a similar platform for CBX ?

They are pulling chart data from a several exchanges and markets using Trading View - https://www.tradingview.com/ (which is free).

It would be good to create a platform like this for CBX including Gold and Sliver pricing etc., however CBX really needs to be present on some bigger markets first.

If others begin to participate in the CBX Proof-of-Value Network then we can have some solid 'alternative' data to build platforms and widgets.

I guess people could even start backing their CBX holdings using iShares Sliver Trust or SLVs, for example, although it is always better to hold the physical bullion yourself. It might also be interesting to start presenting personal holdings from platforms such as vaultoro - https://audit.vaultoro.com/ (see: 'Clients with holdings' where a unique ID could be tracked, if fully verified) and if anyone is prepared to post an account screen shot along side their CBX wallet, for example.

Building a fully decentralized and distributed Value Network, as I have suggested, could prove to be a very powerful concept indeed. Crypto exchanges could back their customers funds with Proof-of-Value. Online gold and sliver retail businesses can potentially back their bullion stocks with CBX holdings. Assets and derivatives (digital or otherwise) could even be launched via a proof-of-value network in the future.

The social media potential for a proof-of-value network is also huge. People are much more likely to use and hold a crypto currency over another if they see others backing it with physical bullion. In Gresham's law it is commonly stated as: "Bad money drives out good" or if we consider this another way, as "Good money drives out the bad"!

If others start doing this then we have some interesting data to work from, at the very least. CBX will also have a thread topic that looks rather shiny to potential investors! The concept can also be presented in a new thread and eventually be developed into a dedicated forum and/or website perhaps. I have joined a couple of silver and gold investment forums with the intention of presenting this concept to them.

I must admit, I had trouble getting my head around this initially. The penny has finally dropped now though, and I can see the real potential in this. With CBX backed by physical precious metal, it's possible to track in realtime the current backed value of CBX, both individually (per CBX) and for all CBX in existence (as we know the number of CBX currently in existence at any one time, hell, we can even predict exactly how many will be released in future thanks to PoSP). In my mind, this acts as something of a 'Gold Standard' for Crypto Bullion, and if this information was stored (perhaps on the CBX blockchain ^^), we could display statistics in realtime within the wallet or on a nice website. This website could have an individual (secured) vault area for each CBX holder where they could go to see the value of their holdings against Gold, Silver, BTC, USD. We could also provide physical backing certificates in future too, and/or have virtual ones in the 'web vault'. Damn, the more I think about it, the more I think this really is a killer app for Crypto Bullion! As Crypto Bullion increases in value, holders could increase the amount of physical precious metals used to back their holdings. I love the idea of the value of my CBX being pegged to something physical, as opposed to Fiat Currency or Bitcoin. Another advantage of this is that each time another CBX holder decides to physically back their holdings, every other CBX holder benefits from the global rise in backed value!

The only sticking point that I can think of is the problem of verifying the physical holdings. I'm sure there's a solution to this, so let's give it some thought. Fantastic idea though! Very visionary :)

I too will be backing 1,000 CBX with 1 Troy oz of Silver. I will prepare and upload the picture and cryptographic proof later in the week. Having a physical metal backing my CBX holdings feels nice and its always wise to diversify your holdings. I particularly like the fact that CBX was designed to mirror the properties of precious metals in its release of coins and total coin availability (rarity). This really is a perfect fit!

Great stuff!

I must admit, I had trouble getting my head around this initially.

I'm still there but it's fun to play with the idea.

What I can't understand is why would I purchase CBX and then purchase some silver on top. It feels like paying twice.
Wouldn't this work better if there is an option to back someone else's CBX.

Example: I will back 1,000 CBX that belong to Raizor for 1 year with 1 oz Silver. If he choose to sell his CBX before the year ends then the Silver will start to back another persons 1,000 CBX. If Raizor holds his coins for the full year he may claim the Silver.

That would be an incentive to hold them. Raizor could return the favor and back a 1,000 from me for similar value.  

It would require trust or it needs to have legal backing with a contract.

Hey BTCat,

Your idea of pairing your CBX with someone else's physical precious metal holdings is something that I hadn't thought of. I think that would provide another excellent entry point for both CBX and precious metal holders. Great idea!

In my mind, it's a case of what gives currency value. The Gold Standard for instance, where currency is backed by physical gold. The value of the currency is dependent on gold reserves to which it is tied. If you were to sell off 50% of the gold, the currency would devalue as the amount of gold that backs it has been reduced. Using precious metals to provide backing for the value of Crypto Bullion would in effect provide a 'Gold Standard' for Crypto Bullion. It would remain up to you to decide whether or not you'd like to back your CBX with physical precious metal. If you chose to do, the amount of precious metal backing CBX's value would increase (by whatever amount to used to back your CBX). This results in the backed value of Crypto Bullion rising, which benefits everyone who holds CBX. That is the reason you would choose to back your coins, to increase their value against the precious metals backing Crypto Bullion. As new investors come into CBX and also back their holdings with physical precious metals, the precious metal market cap for Crypto Bullion increases accordingly. This acts as an incentive for everyone who holds CBX to physically back their CBX with physical precious metals. It even encourages people who have already backed their CBX to increase that backing, as they (and by-proxy every other CBX holder) benefits. The wonderful thing is, they still hold their CBX and their physical precious metal and simply by having both, they increase the value of their CBX holdings. If the physical backing is verifiable and encoded securely in the blockchain (eg. this unit of 1 CBX in the blockchain is pegged to 0.1 oz of physical gold stored securely at XXX, deposited by XXX on XXX date, all cryptographically signed with the holders/depositors identity). We can cryptographically encode this proof-of-holding into the blockchain, which makes CBX a digital representation of physical precious metal holdings.

It's a lot to get your head around, I admit, but once we revise and refine this it should be very easy for everyone to realise the true potential. This is a truly perfect fit for Crypto Bullion. In time, this should allow Crypto Bullion to be pegged in value against gold or silver in addition to Bitcoin or traditional fiat currencies. In my mind, the value of CBX against its physical precious metal counterpart carries much more weight that its value against fiat currency, where fractional reserve banking and the removal of the gold standard make it increasingly hard to ascertain the true worth of the majority of fiat currencies. This plays very well with the reasons many of got involved in Cryptocurrency and Crypto Bullion in particular. Crypto Bullion ceases to be a purely 'virtual' currency if this is implemented.

The sticking point remains with verifying the physical holdings. Once that problem is solved, the sky is the limit :)

As it stands, with BitcoinFX's verified holdings, CBX has a physically backed value of.... $15.54 (current USD value of 1 Troy Oz of Silver). As more investors back their CBX holdings with precious metals, purchase CBX with precious metals or pair their CBX with someone holding precious metals, the 'CBX precious metals market cap value' increases and increases, attracting more CBX investors and more physical backers. Physically backed Crypto Bullion is our killer app, in my humble opinion. People today talk about the value of CBX in USD or BTC primarily, I can see a future where Gold, Silver, Platinum etc are included too. This is the most exciting idea I've come across in Crypto so far. I'll think on it for a couple of days to be sure it isn't just caffeine and lack of sleep, but I'm pretty convinced that this is a real game changer, both for CBX and Crypto in general. When you consider the mindset of the average intelligent crypto investor, who looks for a store of value, safe from capitol controls during times of economic uncertainty. It's easy to see why so many cryptocurrency advocates also hold precious metals. CBX is perfectly poised to be the link between those two worlds, aligning the digital and physical and providing forward-thinking investors to get involved early and help to realise the massive potential this offers (both on a technical level and a potential financial gains level).

These are just some of the ideas flying around in my head this morning. I'm sure in the near future we'll be investigating interacting with precious metal brokerage markets directly from the Crypto Bullion wallet, using a decentralized exchange system that automatically purchases the corresponding amount of precious metal (automatically encoding this pegging on the blockchain) when someone purchases CBX. That's certainly one way to have fully-automated and decentralized cryptocurrency to precious metal pegging. Exciting times for CBX indeed!

You got it raizor! It's potentially a 'Bullion Dollar' idea in principal and in practice!   ;D

Realize also that all 'backed' CBX is not in direct circulation anymore, being relative to the 'unbacked' CBX in-circulation against the total supply, which in theory means that the circulated CBX potentially has increased 'worth'.

It would require trust or it needs to have legal backing with a contract. 

Indeed. With the creation of a legally binding contract between parties it would be possible to 'back' mutual holdings and/or to use individual or combined holdings to back other assests, stocks and even to back entire business ventures as proof-of-capital.

You have described in practice a 'Smart Contract' in relation to blockchain technology.

Also realize that the notion of backing has two stand points i.e.

"I BitcoinFX hereby back 1000 CBX with 10 Troy Oz of .999 Fine Silver."

and/or

"I BitcoinFX hereby back 10 Troy Oz of .999 Fine Silver with 1000 CBX"

Remember also that in the action of backing something, you are not necessarily buying or selling anything. You are simply combining a tangible and intangible asset and proving ownership. At first, this concept is perhaps somewhat mind-numbing. However, it truely is a concept of 'Sound Money'.

We could even open this up to using other semi-precious metals (or other materials). As long as the asset can be held securely, verified and have its current value tracked (price of gold, silver, BTC, tin, pork bellies etc), that asset should be able to be used as backing (theoretically anyway). There may be scope for opening this up to the futures market too, hell, you could allow stocks to be used to back CBX too! Internet high five, BitcoinFX! :D

Herewith, a post I have just made in the Premium Members area of The Silver Forum to try and attract existing holders of Precious Metals.

"How to use crypto-currency to verify value and secure your PM (Precious Metals) trading."

" ...

As a fellow silver stacker, numismatics collector and long-term supporter and user of digital 'crypto-currencies', such as Bitcoin and Litecoin - I hope to present to you an easy and perhaps revolutionary concept in " How to use crypto-currency to verify value and secure your PM trading."

Aside from the actual benefits of crypto-currency as 'money' or as a 'store-of-value', most people are perhaps unaware of the added security or proof-of-ownership potential when buying and selling goods and/or services online (or in person) that crypto-currencies can already facilitate.

Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oxM9_OCQKM - How to sign and Verify messages with your Bitcoin Adress from your Software wallet

- https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/18qy88/bitcoin_message_signing_and_verification/

Practical use cases:

Lets imagine that you want to make a trade with someone on this forum (you don't even need to make the payment using crypto-currency or even hold a balance in said crypto-currency to sign and/or verify messages).

You could request that the seller posts a 'signed' message of an address that they own and includes it with a screen shot of the actual item that they are selling, thus presenting cryptographically verifiable proof-of-ownership to you as the buyer.

As the buyer proposing to purchase an item with crypto-currency you can also demonstrate to the seller that you have the currency/money to pay them and/or that you own the particular wallet address.

As an online vendor (whether choosing to accept crypto-currencies for sales or otherwise) you could present screen shots of physical bullion to your potential buyers of items which are signed and verified as being your own wallet address.

Lets say that you are selling a 5 Kilogram Silver Bullion Bar - you can post a screen shot of this item on your website with a signed statement that you own this bullion. This is 100% verifiable to anyone who verifies your message.

To further build trust as an individual seller or as a vendor you can sign the statement to include both the item type and weight and even back it with an address containing the corresponding denomination in crypto-currency. So, in the case of the 5 Kilogram Silver Bullion Bar you could present a Bitcoin address that also contains £2000 to £2500 worth of Bitcoin (approx. example at the current silver price).

This is also providing a potential buyer (or investor) with proof-of-value or proof-of-capital. If you are a small retailer of 1 Oz Silver coins then you might post a signed image and statement to verify said stock.

In short, this is a better way to do online trading in precious metals. It is more secure for both the buyer and the seller.

... "


I have followed this post with screen shots of my own signed backing along with a link to this thread and to the cryptobullion.io website, explaining how anyone can easily download the software and use it to sign/verify messages.

Fantastic BitcoinFX! Your post has also got me thinking about identity. With the trading scenario you mention, a precious metal (or other asset) trader could use the cryptographic identity associated with the CBX pegged to their assets as a proof of identity and integrity. In essence, the public/private key identity that is digitally associated with their physical assets becomes a bona-fide digitial representation of their physical identity. This allows them to use their digital identity for trading and verifying correspondence (messages, trades etc). This 'digital identity' would exist on the CBX blockchain and could accumulate feedback as the person associated with the identity conducts trades. This would be very useful for anyone wanting to conduct trades in private and avoid fees etc. The identity verification would be very useful and if they are conducting a trade using CBX in some way, multisig could be utilized for escrow purposes.

Sounds good.

The use of any third party or counter party, as with crypto-currency, is not required in the main and should also be avoided.

This is a decentralized and independent Value Network, although third parties will no doubt offer storage services as you have described.

The issue with verifying precious Precious Metal holdings (or that of double representation) can be solved somewhat by separating the data set between certificated and non-certificated Bullion i.e. individually numbered bars vs metal presented via type and weight value alone.

A website where members use a 'trust' voting system to provide weighted assurance on others individual holdings will work best imho.

In search for the lowest retail denomination of physical gold 'bullion' ownership available from the internet I have discovered valaurum.

Whilst their 1/10 gram 24 karat gold 'certificates' are a few 100% above spot price, they are individually numbered!

See: http://valaurum.com/ (N.B. That is not a 'yellow' peice of paper, but a very thin layer of pressed gold and is a similar size to a bank note.)

Thus, at the lowest entry point one could even back 0.000001 CBX with 1/10 gram of 'certificated' gold.   8)

Thanks BitcoinFX. A lot of this info is probably new to a lot of people here (it certainly is to me), so it's good to have someone to point us in the right direction. I think I've come up with a way to encode these certificates into the CBX blockchain for a nominal fee (slightly above the standard transaction fee) without requiring any changes to the underlying protocol. If you have any ideas on workflow (step by step of how you see this system working once it's ready for initial release), those would be really helpful in understanding the process and coming up with an implementation plan.

Thanks BitcoinFX. A lot of this info is probably new to a lot of people here (it certainly is to me), so it's good to have someone to point us in the right direction. I think I've come up with a way to encode these certificates into the CBX blockchain for a nominal fee (slightly above the standard transaction fee) without requiring any changes to the underlying protocol. If you have any ideas on workflow (step by step of how you see this system working once it's ready for initial release), those would be really helpful in understanding the process and coming up with an implementation plan. It also enables me to start thinking ahead in relation to the technical aspects.

OK. I will look to produce a workflow diagram of the cryptobullion Value Network for community discussion.

As it stands, with BitcoinFX's verified holdings, CBX has a physically backed value of.... $15.54 (current USD value of 1 Troy Oz of Silver). As more investors back their CBX holdings with precious metals, purchase CBX with precious metals or pair their CBX with someone holding precious metals, the 'CBX precious metals market cap value' increases and increases, attracting more CBX investors and more physical backers. Physically backed Crypto Bullion is our killer app, in my humble opinion. People today talk about the value of CBX in USD or BTC primarily, I can see a future where Gold, Silver, Platinum etc are included too. This is the most exciting idea I've come across in Crypto so far. I'll think on it for a couple of days to be sure it isn't just caffeine and lack of sleep, but I'm pretty convinced that this is a real game changer, both for CBX and Crypto in general. When you consider the mindset of the average intelligent crypto investor, who looks for a store of value, safe from capitol controls during times of economic uncertainty. It's easy to see why so many cryptocurrency advocates also hold precious metals. CBX is perfectly poised to be the link between those two worlds, aligning the digital and physical and providing forward-thinking investors to get involved early and help to realise the massive potential this offers (both on a technical level and a potential financial gains level).

These are just some of the ideas flying around in my head this morning. I'm sure in the near future we'll be investigating interacting with precious metal brokerage markets directly from the Crypto Bullion wallet, using a decentralized exchange system that automatically purchases the corresponding amount of precious metal (automatically encoding this pegging on the blockchain) when someone purchases CBX. That's certainly one way to have fully-automated and decentralized cryptocurrency to precious metal pegging. Exciting times for CBX indeed!

raizor

With the screen shot and signed message I in fact backed 1000 CBX with 5 x 2 Troy Oz Scottsdale Mint "Stacker Round"s - i.e. 10 Troy Oz Total (thus far) See: https://www.scottsdalesilver.com/store/product.php?productid=17562 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5EJrjUtRuw  8)

(sounds like you had to much caffeine and no sleep)

...

It is vitally important that the majority of the proof-of-value backed holdings are individually owned, personal and therefore decentralized. Think of this as the very oposite to the centralized mining farms that we now see with Bitcoin. 3rd party vault storage is generally a bad idea as well, although I can envisage that some centralization will probably occur.

If we look pre-bitcoin to understand why centralization is a massive potential hinderance, we can see that the majority of centralized DGC's (Digital Gold Currencies) - https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_gold_currency have in fact failed. Not only due to having centralized servers, but also due to having centralized gold holdings.

Again, a fully decentralized proof-of-value network is the best approach.

Hey FR, there's a reply from me to BTCat a page or so back. That might help clear things up a little. Please chime in with any thoughts. I'd like to get a good discussion going on this as I'm still excited about where this could lead. The idea came from BitcoinFX  :)

I must admit, I had trouble getting my head around this initially.

I'm still there but it's fun to play with the idea.

What I can't understand is why would I purchase CBX and then purchase some silver on top. It feels like paying twice.
Wouldn't this work better if there is an option to back someone else's CBX.

Example: I will back 1,000 CBX that belong to Raizor for 1 year with 1 oz Silver. If he choose to sell his CBX before the year ends then the Silver will start to back another persons 1,000 CBX. If Raizor holds his coins for the full year he may claim the Silver.

That would be an incentive to hold them. Raizor could return the favor and back a 1,000 from me for similar value.  

It would require trust or it needs to have legal backing with a contract. 

I would like to add to the theory that once the 1 oz Silver is used to back someone's coins, the person who would receive it after a year should use that reward to back someone else's coins.
That way the commodities stay in roulation and the total amount only grows as more people start to participate.

No.

It is not really possible to 'buy' backed CBX as the action of backing means that the CBX becomes uncirculated.

~ The only way that buying backed CBX becomes possible would be if you purchased the wallets corresponding private key and the same physical bullion from the signed owner and both parties signed a new statement of ownership / transfer. N.B. that the buyer would then need to move the funds and re-sign for security, thus rendering the said transaction pointless.

The basis of this is that all CBX on crypto exchanges would therefore become un-backed and can therefore be defined as circulated.

Against the total CBX money supply (market capitalization) it will be possible to track exactly how much CBX is circulated vs uncirculated.

An interesting theory indeed BTCat.

Although, it cannot really work like that in my honest opinion (unless I misunderstand you).

When the CBX from a balance is spent you are effectively breaking the contract of the Signed statement with yourself. This happens automatically if the CBX balance is spent below the backed statement of proof-of-value. However, it does not prevent you from staking the existing balance and/or spending the interest or the balance that remains above the backed quantity.

What you are describing here I think is something similar to a derivative ? https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivative_(finance) (https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivative_(finance)) - which is not a principal of 'sound money' or 'honest money' and should be viewed as the opposite of what we would seek to achieve here.

How I personally envisage this working in practice is that when an individual might consider their backing to be of a lower value against the total network value, they will simply re-back their holdings and create a new statement. This potentially adds 'value' at the same time as some individuals would most likely re-back with more CBX and/or more physical Bullion. Remembering that their is only so much CBX in circulation to be backed (or uncirculated CBX to be re-backed)!

It is also why we should completely avoid and in fact do not need to set a currency peg against the gold and/or silver price in dollars etc.,

A Value Network determines the actual price through price discovery and free market valuations in this regard.

There is also a possibility to incorporate the backing into PoSP (our new staking algorithm) in future. The first thing that comes to mind is the ability to reward a higher percentage of the unclaimed network stake to CBX being staked when that CBX is physically backed. This could be a simple, across the board (backed-so-pay-extra-stake) payment or something more tailored that increases the stake payment in line with the value of the assets backing the CBX.

Yes. An incentivized 'backing' model through interest is certainly a possibility.

Is it necessary though ? Does it over complicate everything ?

I think it plays nicely with the idea of encoding the backing information into the blockchain. This would allow individual CBX to be queried and tracked, so each CBX in effect has a 'backing' history in addition to a 'transaction' history. This information could be used by the PoSP algorithm to incentivize backing. I think encouraging backing in this way, at least in the outset, will be beneficial. If we do go down this road and fully embrace the asset backing concept,  I see it being a big change in direction for CBX. IMHO, that direction fits perfectly with Crypto Bullion's original concept, but it will need to be something that the CBX community agrees on.

Indeed. This requires community participation and > data from said participation.

I'm really trying to get members of The Silver Forum to start using Crypto Bullion and to try backing some CBX with precious metals that they own. I have a post offering some CBX in their private members lounge. In the main they see this as a bit of a learning curve, although have not rejected the concept and remain open to the possibilities with this.

Perhaps we should consider the experience from the perspective of someone totally new to crypto. There's a lot for someone to get their head around, and some simplifications to the wallet could pay dividends in terms of gently introducing them without bamboozling them. Perhaps if the wallet defaulted to a 'simple' mode, but allowed advanced users to to select 'advanced' or 'expert' modes which would give them more wallet functionality. I'm thinking along the lines of how Armory handles this. Having the client auto-connect to a central server where it pulls down the latest bootstrap and config files automatically would also be great. I think the ease-of-use payoff far outweighs any concerns of centralization. As if sign the data on the server and ship the associated public key inside the wallet, we could authenticate the data too. I think addressing barriers to entry is worth some thought in addition to all the great new ideas we're coming up with. On this note, if anyone has any feedback to share, perhaps from introducing a non-technical friend or family member to cryptocurrency software, that insight would be very useful. Thank you :)

If others start doing this then we have some interesting data to work from, at the very least. CBX will also have a thread topic that looks rather shiny to potential investors! The concept can also be presented in a new thread and eventually be developed into a dedicated forum and/or website perhaps. I have joined a couple of silver and gold investment forums with the intention of presenting this concept to them.



This is amazing! I will take some time this weekend to back some of my CBX holdings with some silver and gold that I have and provide feedback. Hopefully we can get a page on the website (forum section would be better if CBX had one) that provides a step by step for this so someone doesn't have to dig through the thread for instructions?

Good show FiniteByDesign,

Hopefully folks will also start backing with physical Platinum, Palladium and Copper as well. Backing with rare coins and historical items would also generate further interest perhaps!

I have started working on a guide .pdf for The Silver Forum. However, this same document should be submitted for community review and also approved first by the CBX dev. team.

Indeed. The potential is really great here. Its a concept for 'sound money'.

Lots of possibilities to be discusses both with the CBX core team and with the community.

The most important thing right now is for people to start certification of their own holdings. Initial data is required to make progress.

We can't initialize a decentralized network, unless more people decide to participate.  :)

I'm using Chromium Version 46.0.2456.0 (64-bit). I tried again using Firefox (not sure what version - its a couple months old), and got the same Error page.

Any ideas?

We are experiencing an issue with cloudflare...


Temporary fix in place and these 3 pages should be working right now:

* Home: http://cryptobullion.io/
* Vault Download: http://cryptobullion.io/storage-use/
* Resourced/links: http://cryptobullion.io/resources/

Sorry for the inconvenience, will update when full website is back.

EDIT: Yes. OK now.

No. Anyone should be able to easily verify the message by copying and pasting the three sections of text into the CryptoBullion software from your post 'as is'.

Your signed  'Verify Message:' posted does not match with your printed 'Verify Message:'.

I was therefore unable to verify your message 'as is', so please also check the text in the 'Message:' section to ensure that all formatting matches 100% - You have to printout the exact same message that you sign.


"Enter the signing address, message (ensure you copy line breaks, spaces, tabs etc. exactly) and signature below to verify the message..."


- Fantastic choice of coin to back with though.

I'm working to finish some basic documentation to make this process as easy as possible.

Actually, blogging at Cryptomoms; but our 'hang-out' is: http://cryptoguild.com

For those who don't know IMZ, we are Australian krypto geeks who don't squabble (so much) over individual currencies. (Unobtanium is our 'home-base coin' -- that's why I was writing about 'commodity' cryptos.)

CBX's stats lookin' real good, but a pretty big buy-sell split. (We had a great otc exchange running for ages. Had to close it -- odd story. But the principle is fine -- would serve you guys really well.)

Thank you. I'm continuing to work on the detail for this concept and the relevant documentation for community review. It will take a while as some research is also being completed.

Nothing whatsoever to stop others backing their own CBX with their own physical bullion and contributing to the inception of said decentralized proof-of-value network in the meantime though!

- Wondering how a rare crypto-currency such as Crypto Bullion (Est. 2013), now being backed by decentralized gold and sliver, with good trading volumes at Cryptsy is not yet listed on other crypto exchanges such as Bittrex and even Bleutrade ?

These cards would be fantastic for entry-level users to the CBX Proof-of-Value Network and its also great advertising.

Thinking that this could be crowd-funded through startjoin.com - offering some cards as rewards etc.,

Good one elambert.

You have placed an extra space before the (I) in the message field above (currently).

However, the message will verify properly when the additional space is deleted, 'as is'.

Looks like you may have done this in a similar way to FiniteByDesign (using the document template provided) and probably copied the text over from the document directly into the CBX software message field, for convenience. Hence the extra paragraph settings.

It will be best to try and format the messages in plain text (with say notepad) without extra paragraphs, indents or spaces etc., anyway as long as the messages match the printed text and can be verified then we are good. No need to re-do at this stage, however when this starts to be done on mass and/or the data is being machine read and verified then this might well become more relevant. At least this helps to highlight some eventualities.

It will be best to start verifying posted messages with return screen shots of the verified message from the CBX software. So, Proof-of-Value Network Verification.

Anyway, once we have at least one more participant in the CBX Proof-of-Value Network Certification then I think we have the start of our fully decentralized network and thus can commence with Phase 2.   :)

Perfect snatchmonkey - verified.

It really does not matter if people choose to back with less or more bullion than others.

As we progress with this we will reach some sort of price equilibrium from the data https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_equilibrium

The actual total backed CBX precious metal 'value' amalgamated could eventually hold a higher value over the exchange price of CBX to Bitcoin or Litecoin, for example.

For now, anyone could back 1000 CBX with just a gram of copper or even 0.001 CBX with a 1 Kilo gold bar (if they can fit it on the A4 page)  ;D

If / when we start to reach a critical mass of backed CBX against the CBX remaining in circulation then this could get very interesting.  8)

EDIT: The reference to price equilibrium is probably more accurately described as; "competitive quantity" or market clearing quantity - in relation to the economic principals of supply and demand.

"Properties of equilibrium

...

Equilibrium property P1: The behavior of agents is consistent.

Equilibrium property P2: No agent has an incentive to change its behavior.

Equilibrium Property P3: Equilibrium is the outcome of some dynamic process (stability)."


Thus, the CBX Proof-of-Value Network is a dynamic process to find price stability against precious metals and relative to Bitcoin (markets).

Here's mine guys.

I've used my (1oz) silver CGB bullion bar and backed 100 CBX with that. Having just been through the process, it's given me a few ideas on adding some related functionality to the wallet. I think we should be able to auto-generate and print the certificates within the wallet. We could even have a 'create backing' function, that we could make available from a context menu when clicking one of your own addresses in the wallet. Something along the lines of 'back this address', perhaps. We could also have a 'create backing' menu item in the main wallet menu that takes you through the process. As I think about this, it becomes clear that we need to be able to lock the coins within the local wallet. Anyone not using Coin Control to send funds may inadvertently transfer their 'backed' funds without realising it and void the backing. I think we should be able to mark wallets as in use for backing and avoid them being selected for transactions. If we add a 'create backing' option, this could create a new named address in the local wallet and transfer the backing amount to the new address without excessive user interaction.

It feels good to have done this though. I think this is going to be very interesting as it unfolds. Thanks again BitcoinFX :)

Indeed. It is perhaps only possible (or worthwhile) to issue yourself with a personal asset-backed security using block chain technology, as you are the holder of both the asset and the certificate.

Great idea guys! I did it just now. I also stated on the form that I was a developer of the coin and listed some of the things we are currently working on. I'm quite keen on Poloneix as the interface is pretty good - Fingers crossed!

When I submit the form, I get redirected to a plain page with diagonal grey stripes. Is this expected behaviour?

I couldn't agree more raizor! The success of this to a certain extent will be reflective of how simple and easy to use we can make this process. It is not difficult as is, however requires some steps that could certainly be automated. Great thinking!

Thanks Elambert! :)

I had another thought related to this too, in relation to auto-detecting if a backed wallet address is used to send funds and therefore the backing is effectively voided. If we retain a list of all the CBX addresses currently backing metals, we could periodically scan this list to detected new sends from those addresses and discover any 'voided' backings. This would work with the data in a centralized database for the first iteration (database on a server rather than a decentralized blockchain). This opens us some extra functionality such as automatically voiding invalid backings (that have had funds removed) and updating the central list. We could even notify the associated backer or even a mailing list of all backers. A weekly/monthly summary email to everyone currently backing would be pretty neat. This could contain some statistics and graphs for the month and other information that backers may be interested. Still thinking this over and seeing what sticks, but I think any automation/ease-of-use changes we can make would be very useful.

I couldn't agree more raizor! The success of this to a certain extent will be reflective of how simple and easy to use we can make this process. It is not difficult as is, however requires some steps that could certainly be automated. Great thinking!

Thanks Elambert! :)

I had another thought related to this too, in relation to auto-detecting if a backed wallet address is used to send funds and therefore the backing is effectively voided. If we retain a list of all the CBX addresses currently backing metals, we could periodically scan this list to detected new sends from those addresses and discover any 'voided' backings. This would work with the data in a centralized database for the first iteration (database on a server rather than a decentralized blockchain). This opens us some extra functionality such as automatically voiding invalid backings (that have had funds removed) and updating the central list. We could even notify the associated backer or even a mailing list of all backers. A weekly/monthly summary email to everyone currently backing would be pretty neat. This could contain some statistics and graphs for the month and other information that backers may be interested. Still thinking this over and seeing what sticks, but I think any automation/ease-of-use changes we can make would be very useful.

Nice, I like it. Rather than an email though may I suggest perhaps a notification to the address via the Vault?

N.B. This now 'backed' wallet address currently holds 0.001001 CBX. As 0.001 CBX is the minimum transaction fee the backed 0.000001 CBX is most likely absorbed as an 'Over Limit Transaction Fee' if spending from this address, ofc without receipt of additional funds to the address. Hence it remains an 'immovable object'?  ;D

1/10 Gram 24K Pure .9999 Gold Maple Leaf Wafer Aurum is the lowest weight (certified) physical bullion that I could find to back the 'lowest' (common) denomination of CBX with.  8)

Here's mine guys.

I've used my (1oz) silver CGB bullion bar and backed 100 CBX with that. Having just been through the process, it's given me a few ideas on adding some related functionality to the wallet. I think we should be able to auto-generate and print the certificates within the wallet. We could even have a 'create backing' function, that we could make available from a context menu when clicking one of your own addresses in the wallet. Something along the lines of 'back this address', perhaps. We could also have a 'create backing' menu item in the main wallet menu that takes you through the process. As I think about this, it becomes clear that we need to be able to lock the coins within the local wallet. Anyone not using Coin Control to send funds may inadvertently transfer their 'backed' funds without realising it and void the backing. I think we should be able to mark wallets as in use for backing and avoid them being selected for transactions. If we add a 'create backing' option, this could create a new named address in the local wallet and transfer the backing amount to the new address without excessive user interaction.

It feels good to have done this though. I think this is going to be very interesting as it unfolds. Thanks again BitcoinFX :)

At what point becomes a coin a 'security', needing to comply with regulations, Fincen Sec etc.

I guess there must be at least two parties involved and backing your own coins is harmless  :D

Indeed. It is perhaps only possible (or worthwhile) to issue yourself with a personal asset-backed security using block chain technology, as you are the holder of both the asset and the certificate.

~ No one bought or sold anything in relation to the contract with oneself. There is no company to issue anything. All holdings are fully decentralized and remain in individual ownership.  8)

Thank you.

I'm continuing to work on documentation for the CBX Proof-of-Value Network, as well as a database and code for a basic pricing / valuation widget.

Using 'live' / ticker pricing data for gold and silver is not really necessary at present as the daily London Fix will do.

LBMA have made it difficult to pull any data directly from: http://www.lbma.org.uk/pricing-and-statistics

Using http://www.kitco.com/gold.londonfix.html instead for now.

Slow progress and no rush - Although, a widget / API similar to http://www.kitco.com/finance/bitcoin/ for CBX <> Gold , CBX <> Silver and also incorporating the CBX Proof-of-Value Network 'verified' backing is the main goal - https://bitcoinaverage.com looks useful, as well as https://www.cryptocoincharts.info/coins/show/cbx ofc.

By the time the new CBX PoSP wallet is released then I should also be much further forward with the above and can start to work with raizor and the rest of the CBX dev. team on how we might best incorporate all of this.

Proof of Value looks interesting, it took a few moments for me to understand it but makes alot of sense now.  One thing i would like to suggest is that seems awkward if someone wanted to verify these printouts/photos so why not also include a QR code on the printout/photo for convenient scanning?
Signed messages that have been posted can also be turned as is into a QR code and as they can store upto 4296 characters, its more then enough room to contain the message in its entirety.

With the QR code included on the printout/photo or just included with the post, it then a really easy to scan with phone to grab the text.  alternatively the QR could be something simpler like a link to the address on blockchain  that is being used in the signed msg.

Hi digit! I think QR codes would be great for this. Once we've got the backing process streamlined, we can build functionality for it directly into the wallet. Printing out a certificate and QR code would be fit nicely with that plan. We could also allow scanning/reading of backing QR codes within the wallet, which would allow the wallet to inform you if the backing is still valid (coins not moved from backing address). Thanks for sharing the idea, it's a nice one :)

We have a Chinese translation in hand now for the front page of the website which we will get posted in short order.

The train is building momentum  ;D

Exciting times! I've been stocking up again lately.

Yes! The cool thing is you can get still a significant participation in the whole CBX money supply for small amounts of USD (small when compared to typical stock market investment purchases). At this time you can still get 1000 CBX which represents .1% of the whole money supply for 260.$. Also, when PoSP is in place, your CBX investment will truly work in your favor, if you allow your wallet to stake...

this is CGB right? just changed it's name? been a way for a while.

Correct.




Also, Proof-of-Value page on the website is evolving. Added price widgets for current precious metal spot prices.

http://cryptobullion.io/proof-of-value-network/

Thanks! Those will do for now whilst we continue to develop the CBX Proof-of-Value concept and pricing widget.   :)

I would be very carefull with these things. The page you link to is a typical long winding and aggressive salespitch stacking up hundreds of reasons why you should get involved.
For me these type of pages are instant red flag and not without a reason:

http://www.hcplive.com/physicians-money-digest/personal-finance/checkbook-iras-are-on-the-irs-radar

"The checkbook IRA structures will eventually be officially declared illegal by the IRS. The penalty can be as high as the loss of your entire IRA."

It's just something I came across, thought
I'd pass it on, lay it out on the table.
I have no vested interest in it
As always, Buyer beware , definitely
 
I'm trying to bridge the gap between holding
An ounce of bullion in your hand and owning a unit of CBX
It seemed kinda-sorta similar

Hello Bullionaires!

We have a couple of updates to share with the community.

1.   The CryptoBullion forum (http://forum.cryptobullion.io/index.php) is now open! Please come by, register and say hello. We are pretty bare bones at the moment but we will be adding content as we go. Ideally this will be a community project where we build this thing together so join in, take ownership and get involved. Suggestions and constructive criticism are encouraged.

2.   The turnout to vote CBX onto Bter (https://bter.com/voting) has been nothing short of extraordinary. In a very short period of time, the community has taken CBX from zero votes to where it is now in 3rd place with over 28,000 votes! We still have a way to go to get to 1st place but it is just a matter of time now and at this rate, the time will go quickly. Thank you for the support, lets finish this run strong and get CBX available for out Chinese community members.

3.   The Proof-of-Value project is being further refined behind the scenes and will continue to evolve and grow. If you haven’t tried backing some of your CBX with your precious metals, give it a go. We will continue to gain traction with this project and as we grow, it will prove to be a major addition to the overall market cap of CBX.

4.   Finally, development work continues on the announced PoSP project. We have internally discussed some options to coincide with the fork that could assist with project and development funding going forward. Look for a posting soon to get some community interactive discussion going on this possibility.

That’s it for now, as always, thank you for the support!

Hello Bullionaires!
4. Finally, development work continues on the announced PoSP project. We have internally discussed some options to coincide with the fork that could assist with project and development funding going forward. Look for a posting soon to get some community interactive discussion going on this possibility.

I should be able to post something for this soon. Elambert is referring to an idea we've been discussing in relation to using previously unclaimed (historical) PoS rewards to fund Crypto Bullion development projects. We feel this could be very beneficial for CBX and the community if this is done sensibility and openly.

cheers,

Thank you for the vote, it is appreciated, but we will be removing PoW. Pardon my bluntness, but is wasteful, facilitates centralization and frankly will never be as secure as PoSP.

1) Not wasteful. It is the ONLY algorithm which facilititates a fair distribution of coins
2) Also isnt centralised when changes are made to force such
3) Is as secure as anything else

Sorry but removing POW imo will just make CBX another fad shitcoin. Sad to see a good coin become such

Ahmed
1) Good point, however, we have long ago completed the distribution stage.
2) What changes do you propose to avoid centralization from mining farms and pools?
3) This is dependent on applied hashrate. As far as CBX is concerned, PoSP will encourage far more security via active staking than PoW.

BTW, Ahmed - blast from the past! Haven't seen your name in years. What are you up to nowadays??

Things like merged mining reduces the wastefulness of it, To prevent centralization things like ziftr's proof of knowledge could be forced so a person has to run a full node. Especially since POS coins require the miner to sign with their own key its even easier to force it than with POW only coins.
I'm mainly busy with my pool, betarigs and on occasion a number of other coins i help out with. Its nice to see CGB still doing well after all this time.

Hello all,

I just wanted to post a little development update :)

We've had some internal discussions relating to release schedules and have decided to prepare an intermediate release, to be released before the PoSP changes. This small update will contain the IRC chat functionality, new and updated translation sets (including Chinese) and a small tweak to avoid a false positive with VirusTotal for the IRC code. We feel that these changes are worth pushing out early as they will help as in our efforts to break into the Chinese markets. The majority of this work is already done (save for a few small IRC chatwindow bugs), so the release should be ready very soon (in a week or so hopefully). This wallet will not have any network changes, so there won't be a fork until we roll out stage 1 of the PoSP changes.

I'll keep you posted as we release approaches. Thanks everyone!

cheers,

raizor

This is not true. CBX is still a hybrid - both PoS and PoW. Not sure about active mining pools but hopefully some of the miners chime in here to assist?

PoS only will occur once the PoSP algorithm is implemented (scheduled for 4th quarter of 2015) - so the PoW miners still have some time.

Not trying to be a wet rag here or dampen the enthusiasm but i feel i have to mention this as i see potential for bter to exploit people voting here,  i stopped using bter seriously some time ago as i simply don't trust that exchange anymore (several tickets unresolved, they got hacked, they got hacked again  ::) , bitbay scam, FIAT lost/stuck there).  

You mentioned the downvoting so feel i should point out the possibility for BTER manipulating voters here - eg owners see coins being voted on and downvote to milk trades/btc out of their users.  

imho a better chinese altcoin exchange to target would be btc38, which has much higher volume by comparison and a better reputation.

Well the more exchanges CBX is listed on, the more help with awareness for our Cryptobullion. But you are absolutely right, we are contacting http://btc38.com/ about getting listed there too.

Thanks for the replies. I'm still wanted to get in on CBX mining if someone could point me to a pool, Please. I'm small-time and not a farm. I know sometimes that helps to know so you miners don't think I'm coming in to over-power anyone. Responses?

CGB comes from Cryptogenic Bullion CGB, which used to be it's name, now it's rebranded CryptoBullion CBX.
Someone else will have to help with mining info.

Thank you....I got my mining working too. It was a problem on their site.

Good luck!!

Yes, thank you everyone; we have done it!  We will now contact Bter with this established fact in mind and ask them to fulfill their part of the deal, which is to include CBX in their trading platform...

In the meantime, please let's not stop the voting; because unfortunately someone is very methodically downvoting us, and I anticipate that this phenomenon will get worse over time until we finally trade in China.

Excellent work all! This appeared to be such an insurmountable task at the outset... and then with the obstacle of having to start again from zero due to the rebranding... Let this be a testament to the strength and commitment of the CryptoBullion family! As VonSpass said, lets keep the pedal to the metal and keep the upvoting pressure on!

This is not true. CBX is still a hybrid - both PoS and PoW. Not sure about active mining pools but hopefully some of the miners chime in here to assist?

PoS only will occur once the PoSP algorithm is implemented (scheduled for 4th quarter of 2015) - so the PoW miners still have some time.

if it ain't broke
don't fix it!

srsly CBX is 1 of very few functional hybrids
and the POW side gets nearly nothing inflation wise

so why mess with a good thing?

Hey BitcoinNational, I wound respond as follows: :)

A: The notion of proof of work is fundamentally flawed (natural drift towards centralised mining, high barrier of entry for anyone wanting to participate)

B: The move to PosP will result in an increase in CBX blockchain security of many orders of magnitude of what it is currently

C: In this climate / market place you either innovate and pull ahead or stagnate and get left behind

D: The fundamentals of CBX are not changing, the inflation rate will stay the same but more to a far superior method of securing the network

All in all CBX is living up to its true potential by implementing PosP, the more people who stake it (encouraged by minimal associated costs) the stronger and more resilient the CBX network will become. One of the main reasons CBX has held its value lately is due to the approaching singularity that is PosP :)

You know, I really used to love mining cryptocoins; mining coins is exciting but unfortunately it stays economically worthwhile only for a small window of time, right after a coin has gone up in value. Then a whole bunch of people jump in and make it not profitable anymore.

The bottom line PoW CBX is generating right now does not create enough value for it to be interesting to enough miners to provide the network security we want. So not only we aren't getting the targetted security, then there is the general principle that PoW is wasteful in energy; so essentially it was time for CBX to bite the bullet and make some fair and creative changes on how mining CBX occurs.

So, from running a small farm and very much enjoying PoW mining, I went to wholeheartedly agreeing to the proposed (and, actively being worked on) PoSP algorythm... No other coin has this approach, and with this CBX finds iself ahead of the pack once more.

Hi FiniteRed, good news, congrats!


Update:
We are in the early development stages of a CBX P2P Faucet project that will promote CBX exposure to a much broader audience that even Bitcoin is not reaching at the present. The brainstorming stages of this project have identified a couple of prerequisites that I would like to announce now:

1. CBX will be adding a mobile wallet. We are in the resource allocation stage for this now and weighing the options of building this in-house as opposed to outsourcing. Community feedback, experience and opinions on this are welcomed - I know CBX will not be breaking new ground here so interested in learning from any previous experiences (good and bad) that have occurred.

2. The need for a new unit designation to offset the natural negative association people have with fractions. The P2P Faucet project will increase CBX exposure via a mobile wallet download distribution strategy. The mobile vault downloaded by new adopters/users will come with a small starting balance of 10 Baby Bullion (equivalent of 0.1 CBX). We have decided to add nomenclature to the soon to be released Vault that will identify 0.01 CBX as 1 Baby Bullion (or BB for short). 1 CBX will be equivalent to 100 Baby Bullions.

Thats it for now, hope all have a great weekend. Preparing for Erika here in Florida.

Some constructive criticism:

Centi Bullion

Which stems from Latin unum centesiman meaning one onehundreth.  This sounds much more professional.  Baby Bullion just sounds childish.  I have to admit I would not have expected this, from this team, with their pristine track record of professionalism over the years.

Maybe its me (although i'm noticing I am not alone with this problem) but I could never figure out the mBTC and the μBTC and associate them with a value; simply put when I see these units I do not know what they mean, no image forms in my head as to what they are worth.

Baby Bullion = 1 hundreth of a Bullion. Simple. We are aiming for the Baby Bullion to be worth a significant value someday; easier to grasp, nicer said than a centibullion imo.

I would not suggest to implement any more subdivisions for the time being.

Hi CapnBDL. Yes, we will give a couple of weeks of warning prior to the switch from the current hybrid (PoW/PoS) system to the new PoSP implementation. In the meantime, mine away  :)

Afraid I agree with lab rat & Killiz here, 'baby' has no place in a profecinal investment comodity. Also the word baby has different conitations in difrent languages for example baby in Chinese 婴儿 can mean baby, infant or infancy - not the sort of message we want to be associated with CBX.

Stick to the Latin derived units of measurment :)

I did not read it would be in the wallet. In that case I would vote not to use another name. Simple 0.01 CBX is just that, 0.01 CBX. Centi Bullion does not even come close to Crypto Bullion, it sounds like a different coin. (There are Cents and Bullions out there). There are thousands of names already. Also, I would never use it to request for 0.50 centi bullions, the price is too low to transact so it doesn't make much sense. Just my opinion, if you guys want it then go for it.

edit: Now that I think of it more, if you want it, I think best would be to stay close to what is already used for Bitcoin.
 
1 BTC = 1,000 mBTC (millibitcoin)
1 BTC = 1,000,000 μBTC (microbitcoin)
1 BTC = 100,000,000 Satoshis
1 mBTC = 100,000 Satoshis
1 μBTC (microbitcoin) = 100 Satoshis

Then for CBX you could use, CryptoBullion Cents with cCBX, milliCryptoBullion with μCBX.

Post by: elambert on September 02, 2015, 12:56:30 PM
Excellent discussion here! Thank you all for the feedback and participation. Everyone's input is valued and heard.

The Vault currently has 3 different classifications:
  • CBX
  • mCBX - milli-CryptoBullions (1/1,000 CBX)
  • μCBX - micro-CryptoBullions (1/1,000,000 CBX)

No designation is present at the moment for 1/100 CBX. Based on current nomenclature, perhaps centi-CryptoBullions (cCBX) is the best option here. The only issue is that this name does not exactly roll off the tongue...

This discussion and implementation idea has come up to assist with a push for mass adoption. We have a peer 2 peer faucet project in the works which will involve giving away a fraction of CBX to new users (targeting university students). We feel that this target demographic is critical to appeal to and expose to CBX - these are the adopters that can make crypto truly mainstream.

My thought on this is that giving someone 0.1 CBX to get them interested enough to research CryptoBullion would not resonate as well as giving someone, for example 10 'Bulls' (equivalent to 0.1 CBX).

Also, keep in mind the current price point of CBX is not the target goal. We are looking to grow the value exponentially from this point. An easy name for exchanging fractional CryptoBullion will be beneficial in the future for transactions so this move serves dual purposes.

This is certainly a valid option but we want new users and merchants to easily make the association when they are using their Vault. I am a big fan of simplicity and clearly defining things to avoid confusion or misunderstanding.

I voted "centi-bullion" as it is the only one that makes sense for 0.01 although I'm not sure I'm completely sold on the name, much better than "baby" anyway.

I like the standard deci- centi- milli- micro- as it is universally understood, but am not against having a separate name for the 1/100 division as with dollars (cents), pounds (pence), yuan (fēn) etc.

Bulls is nice but seems too easy to mistake for a full bullion.

Bullets is the best i can think of right now.

Ok folks - the poll says we should go with CentiBullion, and I think its not bad. Its bland and it has no taste, but its not a bad choice.

There is more than meets the eye with the Baby Bullion choice. Every other coin is trying (except for the Doge) and going after the corporately serious image; sometimes its good to stand out of the crowd, be a little bit shocking and outrageous to get noticed. Some very serious products, even in financial markets, have cute names. This is why I chose Baby Bullion - the serious one would be the CBX, expensive and high profile - then, the BB would have been the Crypto Bullion's friendly counterpart, the one for the rest of us.  In the end let's not forget, its the people who drive it all - not the corporate investor. The intelligent investor goes after what the people want and makes it available to them.

- Its the people we have to please, not the corporate investor -

Regarding value, we are working hard to make the Crypto Bullion itself more valuable, so the CentiBullion could become the common unit to buy goods and services. Of course I know we are not there yet, but a strong foundation has to be set to build something big on it.

So the poll suggests you guys like the centi- better, I can live with that: CBX is definitely a group and democratic effort; but maybe there are still enough votes out there to support the BB? We will see...

guess i'm a little late for this, but i would like to suggest BitBullion or btCBX, as i didnt see in the poll or suggested elsewhere.  

BitBullion as a name may provide some small advantage as by having Bit & bt it maintains a small reference to BitCoin, while also acting as an appropriate sounding prefix for 0.01CBX or a "bit" of Bullion. :D
1 btCBX = 1 BitBullion = 0.01 CBX
100 BitBullion = 100 btCBX = 1 CBX  


@elambert, raizor - Coins-E should be removed from OP as they no longer exist and site does not load.   For some time it been regarded as scam exchange but only recently have the owners decided to finally shutdown and disappear with no warning or notice given to users, and of course they took with them whatever user coins they still held. :(

Fellow Bullionaires, there is very little time to change the poll's winning choice as the next wallet is coming soon: we do not have the luxury of weeks of debating. If you want Baby Bullion please vote for it now, otherwise CentiBullion wins and that's that.

I'm against this. There were several other options suggested and even after your post someone likes to add an idea. Even Elambert wrote he would like a more recognizable name that is more close or has Crypto Bullion in it. There is probably enough time to figure this out.

On another note: The CBX promo video is nearly finished. But, we are still looking for a great soundtrack. If anyone in the community likes to make a suggestion please do. The difficulty is that it must be free of copyrights. For style personally I would like to hear some athmospheric triphop, not too sleepy but also not too much upbeat, it should not distract from the visual content. Ofcourse other suggestions welcome.

Thanks for the warning. There are still over 2,500 CBX on sale on Coins-E... At least if the info is still correct. The site does load for me https://www.coins-e.com/exchange/CGB_BTC/
They also replied on Twitter so still chance you could get coins back.

Ok all, I have added the suggested names and restarted the poll. As VonSpass mentioned, we have limited time for this decision now so we will refer to the previous vote unless we get a large consensus from the new one. Here is where the old vote was before resetting:

Thanks. But statistically it doesn't have a chance. It's easier to get more votes in a poll of 4 then in a poll with 12 options. Anyhow I'm not bothered with it and will see where it goes.
At least I know what to vote now :)

It might be my connection then, as i have made more then a few attempts over the past month to access it without success and others have also said it was not loading for them.

No replies from their support after multiple attempts to contact them, and the last time the site was loading for me (some months ago) the onsite ticket system would not work for me, and any emails i sent to the listed email addresses on their contact page would get bounced back a few hours later.  

i will try it again, but i would not recommend using this exchange to anyone.

Voted for bit bullion, best in the list imo.
100 bits = 1 Bullion
100 Centibits = 1 bit

Cryptobullion Cents speaks low value to me psychologically.

100 cents = 1 dollar

Voted for 'Bulls' and I feel strongly that this is the best name. It is a shortened version of Bullion and it associates with a Bull market. Its a fun name, yet professional and powerful.

100 Bulls = 1 Bullion

I strongly agree with Killiz - while we want the name to sound affordable and friendly - we dont want it to sound cheap. CyptoBullion Cents makes me think of these dirty worthless copper pennies we no longer have in Canada (abolished 2 years ago)

Ok you guys sold me on it, yes cents is a bit cheapy, take one vote off pls :)
And I like Bit as well. Can we connect it with CBX? Like we could have CryptoBullions and CryptoBits.

This poll is going places  :D

Picked up a few myself at 66, huge sell off at 88, looks like the dumpster wants out quickly. Gone are the day's when I had 12 BTC to throw around or I would have those in a flash.

Checking the transactions, I see all the transactions that should be there - adding up to 100% the amount of coins I should have - but on the overview tab I see my balance listed as ~40%.

Also, it shows 0 coins staking and 0 coins unconfirmed. Any ideas what happened or what's going on?

FIRST BACKUP YOUR WALLET, then after you are up to date type salvagewallet  in the console of the debug tab.

My client is/was completely synced.

salvagewallet doesn't seem to be a command. I tried checkwallet and got this response (xxx is where it lists the amount of missing coins):

{
"mismatched spent coins" : 326,
"amount in question" : xxx
}

Did repairwallet, and it worked!!!  ;D Thanks for the help, sorry I'm such a pleeb with using command line!

BTW, I like both bulls and cryptobits, and don't care too much about an old dead "cryptobit" coin, so I'm neutral on this matter.

Well CBX price is depressed at this moment because of some big sells that aren't yet bought, so you can buy back your 1000 CBX for a song right now. Staking at the moment yields 1.5% yearly; my staking works like a charm here...

We have maintained top voting position for a while, and Jimmy has contacted them to reiterate that we are interested to be listed on their exchange and let them know we would provide all required help necessary for this.  They have replied that they do not know when they will add new coins to their portfolio, and they do not know if they will use the suggestions from their own voting board. Essentially we are periodically communicating with them to let them know we are still around, so they keep us on their mind.

We have been trying to build a Chinese audience by maintaining the 8BTC thread, I suspect this is what will influence Bter the most, to see a strong Chinese following. At 8BTC things are slow, but they are progressing; you can see for yourself - I am Von there.

Dear CBX community,
It is with great sadness that I must report that due to personal circumstances, raizor will be leaving the CBX project and will no longer be able to help us to complete the PoSP work. Raizor has done a phenomenal job for CBX and we have been very fortunate to have him along for the ride. Please keep in mind raizor is and always has been a volunteer and has contributed his blood, sweat and tears to the CBX project so his departure comes with a heavy heart for him as well. We of course wish raizor the best in his personal circumstances and his future endeavors and we will always value his tremendous contributions. Raizor will still be delivering the interim CBX client with IRC and the translation sets shortly, as well as returning the 5 BTC down payment from the PoSP project.

This all being said, we are now all presented with an opportunity in this project to bring in some new development talent. We still have about 10 BTC in the foundation fund for development and the PoSP white paper draft. Should any members of the community have interest in or know of some with interest in getting involved in the project at the development level, please communicate with us.

Those who have been involved with CBX during its 2 years of existence will know that this setback is by no means the end of the road! The development of CBX continues, with the same goals we previously announced, true to the long term philosophy we always had; however this setback will, naturally, cause delays in the development of these projects - therefore a new timeline schedule will be made public, as soon as we have found a suitable replacement for raizor.

For the time being CBX continues to function flawlessly, as it always has. This setback may cause some turbulence in the exchange markets, but please rest assured that the CBX team is committed to bring back its value to a meaningful place among cryptocurrencies...

The core development team feels very strongly that we owe it to the community to bring this information to light in real time as it develops.

Sincerely,
Chris 'elambert'

Thank you BTCat :)

I've written a little post. I'll add it below. All the best.



Hello all,

I thought I should write a few words to compliment Elambert's post and explain why I've made the decision to move on from Crypto Bullion at this time.

As some of you may be aware, I initially became involved in Cryptocurrency development as I saw Crypto (or specifically, decentralized blockchain technology) as a system with real potential for making the world a fairer and happier place; where people could enjoy both financial freedom and cryptographic security (without third-party meddling and manipulation). Something like this has always been a dream of mine, and when I finally caught a glimpse of Satoshi's Bitcoin Whitepaper (quite late in the game), I was hooked! I'd been following CBX (or CGB as it was then) for some time, and I saw a lot of promise in it. The team seemed very friendly, so I got in touch with Elambert and became involved. That was about 14 months ago now, and I had an agreement with my wife when starting out on this Crypto venture that we'd re-evaluate the situation in a year, and make any changes I/we thought necessary. During my time with CBX, I've burnt more than I've earnt (I'm terrible with money!) which has brought about this sudden news. In order to try and make ends meet I've been involved in some other projects alongside CBX, and I now need to make some changes in order to move forward in a less chaotic fashion. I've not been able to dedicate the time to CBX that it deserves of late, and that goes hand in hand with something of a recent life philosophy change for me, which I will now be applying to my work moving forward. I'm sorry for the suddenness of all this and I've tried to manage the situation as best I can, minimizing any damage or harm wherever I can.

I've had some great fun working on CBX and interacting with you guys, the CBX community and of course, the CBX Team which is growing all the time. I think PoSP and the Asset Backing will be great when they arrive, I'm just unfortunately not going to be the one to deliver them now.  Elambert, VonSpass, BTCat, Jimmy and Co. have some really great ideas in the pipeline and I really hope to see the grand CBX vision fully realized in due time :)

Thank you all for the love and warmth I've received here, and I wish each and every one of you the very best for the future!

I am looking to sell some of my CBX (I have ~40K, of which 13K or so is currently tied up in the CBX Casino gamebank) in order to repay the CBX development fund advance of 5BTC. If anyone would like to make me an offer, please send me a PM, thank you. The bulk of my savings are currently in CBX, and I have refrained from selling any of my CBX up to now, but in the spirit of honesty, I should make it known that I will likely need to sell off some of it gradually to raise some funds for the future. I will try to do this off-market wherever possible.

As Elambert mentioned, the next wallet release (with many new translation sets and IRC chat) will be delivered before I move on. I hope to bump into some of you again in future, and look forward to catching again.

Best wishes to you all,

Joe (raizor)

Well as elambert warned, with the changing of the guards comes market turmoil at Cryptsy. This opportunity won't last forever: one way to play this smartly is to place big bargain priced buying offers, and patiently wait: in the past couple of days with the huge amounts of CBX being sold, many of these low offers have been filled. I still believe what we are doing will make CBX worth a lot more in the future, so I placed a few massive low buy offers myself  ;D.

CBX hasn't changed since 1 week ago, same investor-friendly fundamentals which we are committed to keep; it just seems some large holders suddenly want out a little too fast. It really is a terrible timing for the seller(s) but, oh well, it's their decisiom and we will have more inexpensive CBX for us.

Yes i saw some nice buying orders filled: 1167 CBX@30100 and 1500@25000.

Maybe it will come even lower than this, but i'm happy with doubling my stack right now and didn't want to risk missing that opportunity :)

FIRST BACKUP YOUR WALLET, then after you are up to date type salvagewallet  in the console of the debug tab.  


FYI  Cryptobits already exists, it may cause some confusion https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=261194.0

My client is/was completely synced.

salvagewallet doesn't seem to be a command. I tried checkwallet and got this response (xxx is where it lists the amount of missing coins):

{
"mismatched spent coins" : 326,
"amount in question" : xxx
}

Did repairwallet, and it worked!!!  ;D Thanks for the help, sorry I'm such a pleeb with using command line!

BTW, I like both bulls and cryptobits, and don't care too much about an old dead "cryptobit" coin, so I'm neutral on this matter.



Happy to see you figured it out, good stuff!    All the best  8)

Well as elambert warned, with the changing of the guards comes market turmoil at Cryptsy. This opportunity won't last forever: one way to play this smartly is to place big bargain priced buying offers, and patiently wait: in the past couple of days with the huge amounts of CBX being sold, many of these low offers have been filled. I still believe what we are doing will make CBX worth a lot more in the future, so I placed a few massive low buy offers myself  ;D.

CBX hasn't changed since 1 week ago, same investor-friendly fundamentals which we are committed to keep; it just seems some large holders suddenly want out a little too fast. It really is a terrible timing for the seller(s) but, oh well, it's their decisiom and we will have more inexpensive CBX for us.

Yes i saw some nice buying orders filled: 1167 CBX@30100 and 1500@25000.

Maybe it will come even lower than this, but i'm happy with doubling my stack right now and didn't want to risk missing that opportunity :)

Looks like the storm has passed, I suggest a 50/50 approach now where people grab the cheap CBX from the Sell Orders, while maintaining low ball buy offers to catch and benefit from any large dumps; be patient.

Thank you all for the kinds words. I'll still be around, just walking a different path for a while :)

I'll still be in contact with Elambert etc, as we're friends. Change is never easy, but it's often for the better, even if it doesn't look that way at first glance. I will do what I can to help out in future with CBX, so nothing sad, just different. All the very best to all of you :)

Quick status update before the weekend:

raizor should have the interim client ready for us soon - again this will feature in-Vault IRC, translation sets and the naming of the 1/100th denomination as..... BULLS

We have been in contact with a handful of devs and are making progress with finding the right one to carry out PoSP implementation.

Good stuff up ahead guys, enjoy your weekend!

Raizor has provided the new Vault and we are undergoing internal testing now.

Also, seems that Cryptsy has implemented a clever new money making idea which allows coins to advertise better.

https://www.cryptsy.com/coinsponsors

I have made a small donation to get CBX in the top 4 so we appear as a sponsor. This operates based on 4 coins showing as sponsors based according to which one has donated the most BTC for this service.

Quote
Cryptsy's Coin Sponsor program gives the ability for a coin to be spotlighted on Cryptsy. To determine which coins are spotlighted at any given time a bidding process is used. Each coin is given a bitcoin address. Users can send bitcoin to a coins address to move it up the list. The top 4 coins on the bidding list are spotlighted as long as they remain in the top 4.

The balance of the spotlighted coins depreciates. Every 5 minutes 0.00034722 BTC is deducted from the address’s balance. If a coin drops out of the spolight position the deductions stop. For this reason the balance of an address on the blockchain can not be used to determine a coins position on the vote list. The current balance of a coins address will be displayed on the bid list.

Nice chance to pick up some coins guys.

CBX has gone through the process of attracting a new dev a couple times. It could mean that someone has done his job and had a chance to bring in some of his ideas.
And when he decides to move on or when it's his fate calling, there is a chance for a new approach again even while maintaining the goals set. I think soon enough CBX will attract other talent to move this project forward.

Totally agree with you BTCat! We will welcome soon new blood to the CBX equation, I am working hard at this.

Wow what a day at Cryptsy... Someone dumped like 28000CBX before I had a chance to buy any of it; thats 3% of the whole money supply!

Can the people who bought this CBX confirm with me they got some of that dump with a quick PM please, and at what time the transaction occured to confirm this was a real transaction. With this seller out of the way, looks like CBX can move forward now.

OK Bullionaires, I confirm the dump was real, and at the other end there were real buyers who are part of our community that benefited from acquiring some CBX at historically very low prices. I am happy things turned out this way, good game for the buyers who could use this opportunity to increase their stake in our currency.

We had noticed this huge chunk sitting on the sideline a few times, so it is good to see that this 28k is now held in friendly hands; as I said before now we can move forward.

Good afternoon, friends and community - just a small thought today:

Although they have said otherwise in the past, exchanges like Cryptsy do not leave money on the table by not staking: they do stake with all the balances of CBX left by their clients in their system! We can prove this. Its bad enough that people aren't gaining the extra CBX they are entitled to receive if they themselves staked, also these exchanges insta-sell all the proceeds from their staking for BTC, thus creating a small daily downward pressure on our currency.

Bottom line: the exchanges are supposed to make money with the transaction fees, and we are perfectly ok with that; but we do not need the additional downward pressure from their staking. I suggest we do not leave CBX at the exchanges unless wanting to make a transaction; it does not help you, it does not help us.

I didn't think they would stake them and I remember they said to not stake userfunds in the past.

However I find this quote of BitJohn
"This is nothing new. When did Cryptsy ever state we do not stake coins? Some coins we do, others do not stake well."
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=827629.msg9247493#msg9247493

And on Reddit Mullick wrote the opposite:
"Due to community concerns over the topic we decided it best to not actively stake any funds held on our exchange. Our hot wallet occasionally pops out a block here and there when we go over the reserve balance."

We have proved it and can prove it everyday - they operate with a cold wallet with the biggest balance, and a hot wallet with about 30% of what the customers leave at the exchange: the hot wallet is where the daily withdrawals come from - they do not stake from the hot wallet, and cannot stake because they change the wallet ID and move the whole hot wallet balance at every inflow/outflow of CBX for protection against hacking.

They consistently stake with the cold wallet: this is the one with the largest amount and this one isn't needed for small daily inflows and outflows.  When the hot wallet's balance becomes too low, they reload it by substracting from the cold wallet - and that is the only way we can reduce their harmful staking (and automatic selling). Its not such a big thing, but when you think about it, it amounts to about 1600 CBX of selling pressure yearly. Good thing our inflation is so low, but it would be better to bring this automatic selling down (by withdrawing from the exchange to personal Vaults) or convince them to stop.

Honostly I think it's something to least worry about. 1600 CBX is such a tiny amount that does not have any impact on the market. If CBX can't eat such crumbs then it's not an investors coin. There are enough CBX fans that can easily cover 10 or 20 times as much selling, they will gladly buy them up.

I know the team would like to see the wallet being used more though and if you are technical enough it's great to stake them and earn some extra's.

Personally I don't care if cryptsy stakes coins if I got some there, they have servercosts and in some way are also a partner for CBX. I don't think we have much to complain about being listed there for so long, Cryptsy has been great for us and they helped us grow the community and build recognition since the very first start.

I generally keep my CBX off the exchange so I can stake, but with the 99 confirms they require for CBX deposits I do sometimes keep some handy to trade with. Any idea why we need to have so many confirms and can we do anything about it?

The Cryptsy hot wallet looks to be a lot smaller than it used to be, a good thing imo as it implies that more people are withdrawing to their vaults. Having said that I'm sure these top 10 wallets look bigger than they used to:

Hi everyone! I have been away with family for a couple of days on holiday but back and refreshed now!

Couple small updates:
- The new Vault is getting a couple small tweaks and will be ready for public release shortly
- PoSP development discussions continue and we are making progress in this area (we will share more details as possible)
- Android mobile Vault is coming along and should be ready for release soon (iOS will be next)
- As BTCat mentioned - CBX promo video is about complete

Community assistance needed:
- We are still getting spammed over on our forum and could use some assistance with maintenance should anyone be interested in helping out as a moderator
- We would like to boost traffic to the CBX forum and build our community there. I think a giveaway would be beneficial in this effort. If anyone wants to assist with this, please let me know.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Its whenever I see a Vault with a very big balance ... and just ONE transaction (lol!) ... that makes me think it is the hot wallet.

The fact that the top wallets are slimmer and we see a more democratic spread of CBX money supply is a good thing, a result from the large sales we saw last week-end imo... more people involved more deeply is what CBX needs for its growth.

Nice Coin! I like how Crypto Bullion is programmed so I am taking advantage of today's low prices... Only I have a small question about the Vault, if I want to use many adresses.

i created a new address from my CBX wallet, after having enabled the Bullion manage features option. Now before I send coins to this new address - is there a separate password to decrypt the wallet.dat of this new Vault ID
how does this work - I dont see a new wallet.dat file for this new ID being created - do all these adresses fall under the same wallet.dat and same password to decrypt and then, what about staking - does each ID has its own staking thing going?

All addresses are saved on the same wallet.dat, stake together and are encrypted with the same password. basically the same scenario as having a checking and savings account at the same bank.

One thing i should mention, is that you need to make new wallet.dat backups whenever you create a new address and send funds to it as each address will have its own unique private key. Do not make wallet.dat backups while the Vault software is running...

1 CBX is the minimum amount and it must sit stationary in your wallet for at least 30 days before it becomes eligible to stake. Keep in mind, stake priority is subject to coin age (number of coins * days sitting stationary) so the more CBX you have and/or the longer you hold stationary, the more likely you are to earn stake.

Hey, Elambert.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3lnipw/cryptsy_increases_withdrawal_fees_to_05_with_zero

But the reason I've popped in is a thing that we've been working on for a while:

‘complementarity’ -- even ‘symbosis' -- between CBX and Uno:

If all parties basically understand the process, two crypto-commodity communities like Uno and CBX could forge a respectful long-term ‘horizontal’ relationship that somewhat weakens the hold that Bitcoin (and Cryptsy!) has over us both.

'Horizontal' in this sense meaning (via Cryptopia or otc trades or where ever) that Uno folk would always be ready and willing to buy CBX with Uno (thus providing buy-support for CBX) and CBX folk would always be ready and willing to buy Uno with CBX (thus providing buy-support for Uno).

And not because it was some contrived agreement, but because these two communities might see how very much in our mutual interests such a dynamic might be.

Is this so? Does it make sense to you guys?

Hello All,

I may be way out of place to comment on the UNO/CBX thing being discussed, however, I personally hold my CBX to be of greater value than the UNO I own. No...I don't hold a majority share of either, far from it, but knowing that UNO can be merge-mined, it just doesn't hold up to the standards I have come to believe my CBX has.

Just my two cents and thoughts on such a venture that compares UNO vs. CBX.

Yes, VonSpass: we both know that the buy-sell split would drift open if the volume were low.* However, a couple of us are willing to put some effort into a trial -- as I said, this is an effort to try some new ideas.

If you guys will bear with us, All This relates to developing the 'horizontal stuff.' Details to follow. Of course, we're all passionate about our 'home-base coins'; but so very many of us -- we all know this is true -- hold a range of other cryptos. 'Horizontal initiatives' concern openly developing these possibilities.

(Yah, the buy-sell split is ludicrous at this second. I'll chip away at it for a few days, and report back.)

*I am often reluctant to speak against the many-exchanges=good attitude that I see in almost all coins. The fact that CBX has just one exchange seems appropriate to me. I see it as a strength. Would it not be beneficial if CBX had one CBX/BTC pair (which aggregates volume)? and the CBX/UNO pair (which would bring volume that would otherwise probably not exist)?

CBX has more than one exchange. It also can be traded against many currencies. At least CBX/LTC is very good to have and we're looking for a listing in China. As we researched in the past, more people prefer not to have too many exchanges indeed to keep a reasonable amount of volume. Compared to BTC, LTC, DOGE etc. both CBX and UNO are smaller coins with no big volumes. I would think that a CBX/UNO market would be extreme low volume and I'm not even sure exchanges are interested to host this. That said Cryptopia does it: https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange?market=CBX_UNO , so anyone can use it.
To have just one BTC/CBX and then CBX/UNO only it would be a huge downgrade for CBX and I think against the interest of development and growth. The universe should expand not shrink. My idea is, the more things you can do with it the more it will be used. I would have liked a more continuous campaign to get CBX listed anywhere, everywhere in the world with hundreds of exchanges and a lot more functionality, then more people will take notice and get involved.

No intrusion IMZ. You are always welcome here and we encourage all points of view to be heard. I love the outside of the box thinking and am a firm believer in exploring progressive ideas as there are always lessons to be learned and values to be identified.

That being said, I am not quite sure I understand the proposition or suggestion you are bringing to the table. Are you suggesting setting up a stand alone exchange for trading of CBX/UNO exclusively?

The exchange is already ready ... https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange?market=CBX_UNO

The advantage is cross support without the need to constantly back the price with BTC.  

Also, you can trade CBX for Doge, Peer, Start, Black etc via the UNO pair.

I sure won't push this issue -- that would be trollish. Thanks for your comment, CapnBDL

We're trying trying trying to find ways to improve our buy-support/lessen Bitcoin's centrality, really big-picture stuff -- re-wire the motherboard, even if it's just spirited discussion of the theory of it all.

Is Uno's MM-ability not positive? or at least neutral?

Mark (IndiaMikeZulu), Australia


There are many things I like about UNO; I do have a few!  To me the suggested market making agreement appears that it would require semi-constant attention and supervision, does it not?

It would require a bot. Of course, if there were 100 people interested in these markets and shifting their orders according to the value of bitcoin pairings, it could work, but that's not going to happen anytime soon. Eventually someone will get a bot working on Cryptopia and the alt pairings will be much more useful.

The essence of this 'horizontal stuff,' Elambert, is a recognition that similar coins with small caps can 'cross-boot-strap' each other.

Now, in the present situation, members of either coin can trade the other via Bitcoin., and that's beneficial.

But if the two communities each see the other as a sort of 'holding tank' of value against each other* (and Bitcoin is not the middleman . . . ), really significant amounts of buy-support could become the norm.


We are calling here, fellow crypto-commodity developers, for a consideration of a fundamental change of consciousness.

*And I wanna discuss 'bagholderism' a bit later: long time community members end up with a little too much of one crypto than is perhaps healthy for its perception by potential investors. We could progress to significant otc trades between the communities.

Ok, I think I follow now. Your logic makes sense and is a good marketing tool to help UNO grow their market/trading pairs at Cryptopia. I am not opposed to CBX holders getting involved with this should they desire UNO. Just like with the CBX/LTC trade pair or Ripple/CBX trade pair at Cryptsy - people have more options to obtain what they desire without going through BTC.

However, for me personally, I honestly have no interest in other cryptos. So for me to trade CBX for Uno, LTC, Ripple, Bitcoin or even cash for that matter does not make sense. I have worked my butt off for over 2 years on CBX and am fully committed in heart, time and money to continuing this journey with 100% commitment and focus.

To each their own though, but I am confident in what we are doing and where we are going so I don't think I would be of much help in this endeavor...

I just took a look at the UNO/CBX market. I think one of the problems is that people are not familiar with the rates and it takes effort to pick up a calculator. We're so used to BTC and LTC, when you see the price you remember it's history and can make a decision. I think at least a chart should be produced with historic UNO/CBX prices and overlays of both paired with BTC and USD to get a good picture. A better system to reflect on these prices could help get more interest in these altcoin pairings.

Great point BTCat. The conversion rate between these new trading pairs is a bit of a hurdle and definitely acts as a barrier to trading. The chart idea is a very good one.

Use the bootstrap (http://cryptobullion.io/storage-use/) download from the website so you can avoid downloading the entire chain. One of our community members actually just put together a step by step on how to do this. It can be found on our forum here (http://forum.cryptobullion.io/index.php?topic=1455.msg1477#new).

Besides keeping one's wallet open, is there anyting else to do in order to generate stake after 30 days?

Is CBX like PPC, in that if the wallet is encrypted, one has to run a special .bat file to allow the minting to occur?

If so, is there an example of that file anywhere?

If encrypted, you only have to unlock your vault to mint. For safety, it is preferable to use the 'unlock for minting' option so a password is still required to withdraw bullion from your vault.

I think it's minting, but there is no unlocked padlock in the lower right hand corner indicating that the wallet is encrypted but currently unlocked for block minting only. Is this normal? Again, I don't see anything specifically telling me that I'm minting anything...

You will see a lock icon at the top of your Vault as well as at the bottom right:

* Both in locked position = locked and encrypted
* Both in unlocked / open position = unlocked for sending and minting
* Top unlocked / bottom locked position = unlocked for staking only
Yes, I see what you're saying, the two are there initially. However, upon clicking to unlock for staking only, the lock in the lower right doesn't open, it disappears altogether leaving just the network strength symbol and the green checkmark indicating the wallet is synced.

Also, even though the wallet is synced, I still got the out of memory error as I leave the computer on and open to mint. Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks for the info. Sorry to be a thorn in your side, but don't want to waste 30 days only to find out I wasn't staking at all.

Also, CBX wallet is only using about .5G RAM, I have 8G and the other running programs take up about 2.5G. So I'm not sure either...don't have the problem with any other crypto clients...

Your Vault does not need to be running the 30 days... you just need your bullion to be aged a minimum of 30 days at which point you can unlock your Vault and start to compete for stake.

Agree! Funds should always be kept in your control - this is one of the major advantages of cryptocurrencies. Move them into exchanges for trading and then get them out. We have seen numerous examples of people taking large financial losses by turning over the control of their funds to 3rd parties.

Added a guide to the forum to assist those interested in creating a CBX multisig address.
http://forum.cryptobullion.io/index.php?topic=1675.0

It is a great feature for multiple purposes but currently is a little clunky to do. We will work on making this more user friendly in a future release but the functionality is here now for those interested.

If a community member is interested in trying the outlined procedure and making a more user friendly step by step manual for publication, I will pay 50 CBX for the assist :)

Here is a good video on multisig benefits and uses:

New poll created to get community feedback regarding CBX transaction fees. Currently fees are destroyed in order to help offset increase in money supply from staking. However, since CBX maximum inflationary rate is so low (2% per year), we would like to explore options for potential uses of these fees.

The options in the poll should be pretty clear except for the last one regarding the P2P Vault. To better explain, this is a planned outreach program to coincide with our mobile Vault launch in which each mobile Vault download will install with 10 Bulls (0.1 CBX). We feel this is a nice incentive to encourage downloading and use of the mobile Vault - especially by those new to cryptocurrency.

I have voted: Sent to CBX Foundation fund for development

Because I think this is really needed, development and outreach to the community costs money and with this CBX don't need to ask too much for donations.

I don't know where pre-installed 0.1 cbx should be paid from. Aren't you afraid that when the price is higher people will install hundreds of wallets or even more with some hack?

Yes, we will take security precautions.

Also, the mobile Vaults will pull from a designated address and only come loaded as long as funds are in that address. This will aid in insuring that consequences of a hack or gaming of the system are limited.

Nice and interesting question! One thing is sure, I really dislike the current option 1, the pointless destruction of coins; inflation of CBX is low enough already.

I voted for 2, this will create some exciting and fluctuating block rewards - a nice further incentive for people to buy and hold a significant amount of CBX in personal Vaults - which could translate into higher CBX market prices, especially when this tx fee reward is combined with upcoming PoSP reward algorythm.

I also like option 3, to help out Foundation develop the coin. But I think 2) will be a better catalyst for CBX value.

happy voting, community!

Hey everyone, I have voted for #2. We need to make staking as attractive as possible to increase the number of people who activley stake / secure the network.

I also like option 2 and agree with the comments.

As I understand for Bitcoin it was intention of Satoshi to one day pay the miners only from fees. If Bitcoin still exists many years ahead in the future then the price will be high enough to support this, since the blockreward will be even smaller as the fee.

Thing is Bitcoin is so popular that development started naturally and people and businesses started to fund developers for it, while smaller altcoins need to fight harder to get their funds together, one way or another. Possible option 2 can make it more attractive to buy more and raise the price for coinholders but from the developers team side it would require a little more requests for donations or other support from the community to keep funding projects.

Excellent to see this brought up! I love the idea of finding a use for these fees rather than destroying them. All the suggested options are great ones imo. This vote should be fun to watch.

Community and friends of CBX, I have the honor to announce the official release of the Android CBX Vault; this Vault comes as part of an upcoming special marketing program, therefore new Mobile Vaults are prefunded with 10 Bulls (0.10 CBX). The Apple iOS mobile Vault will follow.

Please note that the Mobile Vault uses the Bulls as CBX reference, as we see the Bulls as more convenient for the developing transactional aspect of our Crypto Bullion.

In Google Play if you search for "Crypto Bullion", you are sure to find it: but here is the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.coinlabs.cryptobullionlight&hl=en

This incentive 10 Bulls, as you can guess, is not free however: so donations to 5c3hmSpD7j5VxPcwLJpUwu8s3VScgJogq2 are welcomed and appreciated; they will help keep this mobile program running.

Be totally 2016 by sending CBX using the QR code reader mobile feature, using both the standard PC Vault's QR code generator and the Mobile Vaults reader!!!!

Wonderfull news, great work guys.

As mentioned before I still have 650 cbx for any promotions. I think they best be in your hands or we could allocate it all to the program, that would keep it running for a very long time (6500 installs  :D)

Post by: CapnBDL on October 10, 2015, 09:31:15 PM
First off...accept my apology ahead of time. I'm going to digress to the 'wallet' for CBX. I have v1.2.0.6 installed, which I believe is the latest. It is somewhat of a mem hog. In some cases, if I have too much going on, it will close due to low mem problems. I have 16G so I don't get it. Can anyone explain?

Also, I made a mistake on what would have been my first stake. I had the wallet open to staking, the upper lock unlocked, lower lock disappeared, etc. When I pulled it up from being minimized, there was a lock showing in the bottom right. I thought it had been locked again, maybe due to mem problems or whatever. Wrong!! That was actually the wallet staking indicator. Just as I clicked the upper lock, I noted the small type in the lower left saying 'wallet unlocked for staking'. Too late to stop my finger tho. I locked the wallet and, of course, staking stopped. And, before you ask, the staking indicator will be a locked lock. I'd like to suggest that the lock color be green when staking so as not to confuse it with an actual locked wallet. The type in the lower left is very small, easily missed.

My question: How long will I have to wait before the wallet will stake again?

Further: is there an explorer with 'rich' list anywhere?

Thank You

edit: Also, why isn't there some type of 'time' indicator for staking? I have a VERY small wallet (<50, I was a late-comer) and it would be nice to know how long I'd have to wait.

edit; I voted to send to foundation for development. If dev falls off, so does support, and with so many alts out there, we need to make CBX the real, only 'go-to' alt. (IMHO)

Android wallet!! Nice... going to check it out just now, thank you VonSpass

CapnBDL - You can stake your coins either every month or every three months. Personally I do it every month. When you stake them depends on how long they have been in your wallet. If for example you sent 1000 CBX from Cryptsy to you new Vault on the 1st of October, then you cannot stake them until the 1st of November (or thereabouts). Your wallet does not need to be open or unlocked until that date. If you open and unlock your wallet on the 1st of November, it will stake, as your coins will have been in your wallet for a month. It should not take long to stake, but there are a few factors that will affect this. For most people leaving your wallet unlocked for one or two hours should be long enough to stake your coins.

If you have coins in your wallet that have sat there for a month or more (without being moved or staked) then you can stake them. If you are staking your coins and you accidentally lock your wallet before all of your eligible coins have finished staking, simply unlock it again.

Edit: Okay I see you posted your wallet address above. You sent your coins to your wallet on the 22nd of September. You do not need to open your wallet to stake your coins until the 22nd of October. Your balance is quite small as you say, have you seen that we have a Faucet at http://bulliongalore.com/ and also a smaller one at Cryptopia.

I did unlock it again, right away. No luck tho. Sits there and hogs mem. I am slowly mining CBX at the same time I am always looking in the trading exchanges. I happen to be the type of person that keeps what I have and don't move them around, don't sell. CBX is an alt I believe in. I simply don't own much, at this time. Just a lowly miner, scrapping up a livin'. (a thousand? yeah right, I wish).   ;D

With current staking algorithm, the "coin-age" counter accumulates until it is high enough to stake, whether or not your wallet is in staking mode. The only thing that matters is that the coins remain at the same Vault address for at least 30 days. You could even close your wallet if its memory requirements are problematic.

After the coins have been immobile in your Vault address for 30 days or more (whether your wallet had been running or not), only then if you unlock for staking, will you eventually receive the proceeds that you are owed by the network.

Fellow Bullionaires, I am happy to announce the imminent launch of the CBX Promo Card marketing program; it was suggested by elambert a while back. The first batch of this card will be 2000 copies;
if successful there will be more batches. One side will be in English, flip side in French (my language); other languages can easily be adapted as well if you are interested.

This campaign has been made possible only after completion of the current Mobile Android Vault of course; I just couldn't wait to put wheels of this great idea in motion: Mobile opens many possibilities as we all know.

Let me know what you think of this card: if you see some ameliorations I should consider - let me know.

Also, most importantly, if you would like to help our cause with this campaign and are interested to distribute a few cards yourself in your area, please send me a PM!!!

Great design VonSpass, I like it! Clean and to the point.

Community - We are very excited about this project as it will make it possible for the community to get involved in a hands on way and start to expose people in their respective locales to Crypto Bullion.

This enables us to get the CBX Vault and currency into the hands of people who have never been exposed to cryptocurrencies. At the present, cryptocurrency is adopted and used by a very small segment of the population and has been unable to bridge the gap to the broader population. Due to this, cryptocurrency markets have recessed and stagnated for almost a year now.

This project will help to bridge this gap and put Crypto Bullion at the forefront.

Again, community assistance will be necessary to make this project go viral and the more that get involved, the bigger this can be.

More to come on this and some other exciting news as well :)

I'm being asked for a couple of things when the wallet is opened the first time and unclear of what should be done. Is there a guide anywhere and if not, would you kindly have the creator post them?

Hello CapnBDL

When you initially install the Android Vault, your operating system will warn you about several things including that if you install the Vault, it will have access to some of your personal info. This warning message is a generic message for many apps, so just say yes to that.

Then when you create your first Vault ID it will suggest to create a mnemonic code; say yes to that then please take these exact words down in your password notebook; this will be very convenient as tablets get wiped out or reinitialised regularly, and this mnemonic code will help you recover your Vault with all CBX in it.

Typically a mobile Vault is meant for short term, and should not be left with big balances. Try the QR code reader built in the Vault, it's really neat!

Yes, understood. I have already been...'playing' with it.

It's actually a VERY intuitive wallet with more options than the typical Android version a user would see. I AM just a little confused by the .json import though. I see where it may be needed to re-install for a wiped mobile device, but not as a first time install (same goes for the mnemonic), so why does it ask? Shouldn't that actually be in the settings area so it doesn't confuse people? Which, by the way, was why I hesitated to begin with.

AND...I am wondering how well the network block updates will function if I import my desktop wallet (or fractions of it)? This wallet far exceeds others, but for the 'Average Joe'...well, somewhere, somebody is gonna mess it up! They will try to do something, and it will let them, but "Can this wallet keep up"?

Personally, I like it, but I'm really not the 'average' user. I pretend...keeps me from stirring the pot too much. The dev for this did a very good job, but just needs to keep in mind the acronym 'KISS', as in Keep It Simple Stupid.

As I am strictly a Windows user (and an MS beta-tester), and I don't know the way the IOS/Linux systems are structured, thereby, I am unable to 'lend' any advice in that arena. Is that what the 'first-time' setup features are for? It would then make sense (at least to me). However, in any case, it was a terrific job. Congrats!

There's nothing to it, if you don't try to read more into the 'first-time' install. I guess I don't deserve a 50CBX payout for doing nothing. Should it be deemed so, I can write a 'basic' guide to help people from the Windows environment, but, since installing mine, such guide would read pretty short. If you would like to further test out the Android wallet my addy is...5iTupFdu2kTkJwcEMHgUgFoNiFRRk5s6UT. Find out how well it functions.

Thanks anyway,

edit: there does seem to be a slight problem with the QR code scan feature though. After I scan an address from my desktop Vault, the app crashes and closes. I'll keep 'playing' to see if I can figure out why it won't add an address.

October 17, 2015 'State of the Bullion' Address:

Hello to the Crypto Bullion community!

We are very pleased to bring forward a few announcements to the CBX family.

Firstly, we have a new team member that has joined us, Alexandre ‘Alex4J’. After a wide-ranging candidate search and interview process, Alex4J has been appointed as our Senior Coder/Developer. Alex4J is an initially self taught programmer who later in life pursued professional training and accreditation. Along the way he discovered a passion for cryptography and cryptocurrency and joins the Crypto Bullion Team with a wealth of knowledge and experience in these areas of study and development. Additional to this, Alex4J brings another flavor of culture, hailing from Belgium, to the already diverse development team as well as his associated ideas and familiarity with CBX's target demographic.

Alex4J has already gotten involved in the source working out some bugs from our planned interim Vault release (Version 1.3.0) and compiling to where it is ready for public release today! PoSP work will now receive his full attention and we do not anticipate any issues with keeping our schedule for a Q4 release.

Please join me in welcoming Alexandre ‘Alex4J’ to the Crypto Bullion family!

Secondly, as touched on above, the new Vault (v1.3.0) is available for download via our website http://cryptobullion.io/storage-use/.

This new release includes:
•   New checkpoints
•   Upgrade to QT5
•   IRC chat functionality
•   Update setup
•   New Vault translations (Multi-language)
•   Denomination added for .01 CBX = 1 Bull

Stay tuned, lots more in the pipeline and some great community projects taking foot!

~ CBX Core Team

Way to go, Crypto Bullion! It's a pretty exciting week indeed...

A new wallet clearly demonstrates that there is a dedicated team behind CBX, always working relentlessly to improve our currency's  network and its capabilities.

I had the priviledge to discuss a thing or two with Alex4J, and I fully trust that his talent and motivation will help bring our CBX forward, to the next level.

So welcome aboard Alex4J!

Hey people has anyone noticed how speedy and efficient the CBX network is, compared to other popular coins?

CBX just flies in and out within seconds!

I am trying to cash in my TIPS and the coins are stuck with zero confirmations after 1 hour and half!

People should appreciate the solidity of the CBX network... its important!

Guys,
I am seeing some chatter in other threads regarding possible issues with Cryptsy. Most likely this is just FUD. Cryptsy has been around for quite some time and has been a great ally for CBX.

That being said however, I just want to remind the community that the safest place for your CBX is in your personal Vault. Exchanges are meant for trading not storage so please be cautious with trusting any third party with your finances. Better safe than sorry.

Nothing wrong with cryptsy, it's all fake, 2nd incarnation of the Merkle article. It's so obvious they try to hurt Cryptsy, they probably have invested in Paycoin thinking they were gonna win it big, until they lost and try to put blame on the exchange. The only thing responsible for such losses is their greed and dollarsigns in eyes.

Actually I just preordered the Mastercard from Cryptsy, will be great not needing to sell through another site which takes higher fee's.

* Checkpoints are added when necessary with new releases.
* Most recent release, Vault v1.3.0.0 has checkpoints up to block 960,000.
* Transactions have never been and will never be reversed.
* CBX does not have nor will it have merged mining.
* PoW will be removed in the next Vault release slated for Q4 of 2015 in which our unique proof-of-stake design PoSP (proof-of-stake-participation) will be released. http://bitcoinprbuzz.com/over-2-years-old-valuable-bitcoin-alternative-cryptobullion-cbx-announces-unprecedented-posp-algorithm-and-expansion-into-chinese-markets/

Looks like Cryptsy has imposed max withdrawal limits of the equivalent of $100 USD per month for standard users (Tier 0). One can upgrade to Tier 1 with photo ID, registration, etc where the limit is raised to the equivalent of $2000 per month if I am not mistaken.

Glad I do not keep funds on exchanges but I imagine this causes some issues for others :(

CBX also trades at Cryptopia and Yobit... Any recommendations from the community should I desire to switch?

Cryptopia looks pretty good to me, do they have any withdrawal and/or deposit restrictions? What about Yobit?

Thanks in advance.


edit: photo ID needed for Tier 2, not Tier 1

I had mentioned that I recommended people to keep their CBX outside exchanges, at their personal Vaults. The only important thing to having a perfectly safe Vault at home is to copy the encrypted wallet.dat file somewhere outside the house, preferably 2 places.

Now this move by Cryptsy will make people move their balances out in droves; not that we have something to hide, its just that anonymity is also something people from the Crypto currency world greatly treasure. And its a fundamental human right.

The other main point about moving CBX out of Cryptsy is that the upcoming PoSP algorithm will pay more to bigger balances; and I can report that work on this algorithm is going very well.

Yes.

Also of great importance is to realize that with PoSP, interest is variable based on the number of CBX being staked on the entire network at any given time. If you don't stake your CBX, you forfeit your interest earnings to the CBX that are being staked. Holding funds on an exchange guarantees you miss out on your deserved interest earnings while forfeiting that money to the exchange or to the rest of the network if the exchange also decides not to stake.

Thank you everyone for your votes and participation; I think this is a very good choice because it will make the ownership and staking of CBX even more interesting. Has everyone purchased all Crypto Bullion they want, in order to get the desired amount of staking reward? PoSP is coming to a Vault near you ...

Thank you for your reply,
CBX transactions have never been reversed. That's great.

But why are you sure that they will never be reversed? What if there is an attack?

also how do you decide where and when to implement checkpoints?

Yea, don't be fooled. When BTC goes higher there is pressure on the altcoin prices, but at some point they will resist and shoot up as well.
CBX has been pretty strong in these type of moves and I'd say there are some good opportunities to trade.

Cryptopia is really a nice site with lots of features, hopefully volume will grow because it's still very low. They seem to be good guys running it too (ofcourse carefull with your coins).

Can't believe I didn't notice that there's a BTC/CBX pair on Cryptopia! (I will wait a little longer on the UNO/CBX pair.)

And yes, Finite, what BTCat says is true in our experience, so this should be a good time to pick up some CBX.

Some good news for CryptoBullion, CBX has just been added to https://www.banx.io exchange.
Blockchain is all synced up and market is open for trading.  :)  

https://www.banx.io/trade?c=CBX&p=BTC
http://i.imgur.com/5z5TDyL.png?1 (https://www.banx.io)

This is one exchange I hoped would add CBX being one of the coins i support (i think i may have mentioned it in the past in the old CGB thread when it was still atomic)
it has a minimalist style (themes to suit color preferences), multi language interface, high security and an attention to quality that shows in features, and transparency not commonly seen or existent on the larger exchanges.  Its also never been hacked or compromised which is not a claim many exchanges can make these days.
I've found it to be a well managed alternative to the bigger exchanges, and never had any major issues or lost/locked out of my coins there.  Which is why i've had in my signature space for a while (and the referral which gives some ATP reward)
Exchange has been around for 2 years, previously known as Atomic-Trade, developed entirely from scratch by Byron who now is the lead dev/admin after he sold to and joined the Banx Team which rebranded it to Banxio earlier this year.
 
Its a good exchange for CBX imho as there is not an excessive number of alts here, so less noise makes it easier for CBX to stand out more then when mixed in with a zombie horde of alts :D

Trade fees also recently reduced to 0.10% and only the coins network/miners fees for withdrawals (no profit taking on your withdrawals), so some opportunities for arbitrage may arise :)

Status page

Other notable features are internal messaging, ATP feeshare (every 6 hours fees are distributed), and advanced API https://www.banx.io/apis
Home page also provides some useful info like bitcoin ticker, news from several crypto news sites, and system messages.  
They are on twitter as well https://twitter.com/BanxExchange


Check out the exchange if you havent before, i'm hoping that this will another place i can trade CGB and help keep our options open for trading without restrictions.

It is good that they are transparent about their liquidity, but if you look on their liquidity page you'll see that the sum of cold and hot BTC wallet is 29% less (20 BTC) than what they owe their customers.

That doesn't look like an exchange where I want to put my money...

@BitcoinNational

Agree. As soon as we have completed the PoSP fork and got the Promo Card project momentum going, we will be able to put some more attention back into the physical backing project. The groundwork is there already though so anyone can participate now. This is all designed to fit together like a puzzle.

@VonSpass

Looking very good, excellent work! I am eagerly anticipating receipt of my cards now!

This project has some amazing potential and will assist in breaking the barriers separating the crypto-tech space and the monumentally larger general populace.

The vast majority share of CBX trading occurs at Cryptsy. Cryptsy has been and continues to be a valuable and trustworthy partner and we hope this will continue for many years to come. That having been said, we do have other trading platforms available to us. It seems that it would be a beneficial step for us to help and boost the volumes of these other exchanges so we as a community are not over expended in any one central point. I know people have voiced opinions on one or the other, each with unique benefits. Let's open up this discussion and vote to help prioritize these exchange platforms so we can focus on them one at a time. Primary concerns should be security and trust in my opinion but we should also consider volume, potential investor exposure and of course trading fees and withdrawal/deposit limitation.

Please vote above and discuss.

Looks like the majority has spoken regarding transaction fees. I am pleased to announce that transaction fees will no longer be destroyed and instead will be included in PoS blocks upon release of Vault v2.0 with PoSP!

Great choice  ;D

Thank you everyone for your votes and participation; I think this is a very good choice because it will make the ownership and staking of CBX even more interesting. Has everyone purchased all Crypto Bullion they want, in order to get the desired amount of staking reward? PoSP is coming to a Vault near you ...

I don't have near enough CBX and it's been slow for me in the exchanges (don't have enough BTC either). What kind of return will I be looking at with just 73.xx CBX? Still attempting to acquire more. I was hoping to get over the 100 mark but don't think I'll make it before POW is over.

FYI; As for the different exchanges, I happen to like Cryptopia.

Good Luck with the new wallet to be released, although I will be disappointed that mining CBX will be over.

CapnBDL - return is dependent on network participation; the less people staking, the more likely you are to earn a PoSP block = the more CBX you will earn.

After PoSP launches, your Vault will need to be open online and unlocked for staking. Your CBX will have to sit in your Vault for at least 1 hour untouched at which point they become eligible for earning PoSP stake occurring at a target rate interval of one block per minute. The larger your Vault balance, the more likely you are to earn the PoSP block that occurs at that minute. Once you earn a PoSP block, your staked CBX will have to wait the 1 hour minimum time limit once again before being eligible to qualify for the subsequent PoSP blocks.

Our white paper will be released with the new Vault v2.0 that will explain in better detail, but this is essentially the best we can do to answer your question without knowing network participation at any given time.

Hi.
Have you ever thought that the constant annual inflation in this coin scares many investors.
Maybe the developers should think about fixing the exact number of coins in the Crypto Bullion.
For example, each owner will continue to receive a small percentage of income through POS by commission when sending the transaction. 
And by the way, this problem https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=951753.msg11692604#msg11692604 is still not solved..

Have you ever thought that the constant annual inflation in this coin scares many investors.

In Crypto Bullion's current hybrid algo implementation 1.5% of the inflationary rate is actually interest payments going directly to investors (should not scare them). Only .5% of the inflation is resultant from new CBX created via the PoW mining process (chosen for CBX distribution) - which is winding down after over 2 years. Essentially the 2% is not quite as you are understanding it.

Please note, our soon to be released PoSP implementation will remove PoW mining and allot the full 2% inflationary rate as interest payments to investors.

Thank you for staying on this. Please know we have noted this and have yet to determine the appropriate resolution - focus has been on PoSP development. Just for a little insight, this occurrence did not exist when we were using BerkeleyDB, but Vault startup time was extremely slow. With current LevelDB, startup time is greatly improved but we have this occurrence.

PLEASE, don't forget to let those of us still trying to mine the last bit of PoW CBX available, as to when pure PoSP kicks in. Also, it might be a good idea to let the pools know, as well. We don't want any confusion concerning shares popping up and becoming an issue.

Zero inflation is never good in any situation; in an economy as well as in a money supply. We will both agree that high inflation is also very bad!

That being said, I think this coin's 2% interest paid to investors by PoS is quite reasonable and healthy by any standards.

I think that with this conclusion, not all agree.
Take a simple thing is antique jewel released in small editions in the past.
Why increasing its price in time?  The answer is obvious - people know that this is a rare and  precious object..
Many would like to receive this object in the own  collection, but the number of these things greatly limited.
Now take the option with a crypto currency. The more coins into the system, the lower the price.
But most importantly, that any inflation will only scare away fans to invest in such a system.

Then how do you secure a network with no reward for doing so?
At 2% it would take around 36 years to merely double the supply to 2M.
Everyone using CBX at this moment would probably have passed away before the 4M mark.
2% keeps CBX rare whilst giving the incentive to stake, secure the network and keep transactions running smoothly.

Bitcoin is currently inflating at over 9% annually and I see no lack of interest there.

Sounds like you may have a corrupted file. First create a copy of your wallet.dat to your desktop. If you lose or delete this file, you will lose any CBX your Vault presently contains.

Now go ahead and delete all of your files from your roaming folder for Crypto Bullion. Then follow the step by step manual over at our forum here: http://forum.cryptobullion.io/index.php?topic=1455.0

This will lead you through the download process for the newest CBX Vault and also help you to insert a bootstrap of the blockchain so you do not have to sync from the genesis block.

After you are up and running and synchronized, shut down your Vault. Now go back to the roaming folder for CBX and replace the newly created wallet.dat from your download with the one you saved to your desktop from the first step.

2. Confirm on rewards? 5 blocks             
3. Minimum maturity? 5 blocks             
4. Average reward? 2% annual of total money supply at time of block + transaction fees


PoSP scheduled for implementation in Q4 of 2015

PoSP Overview:
PoSP will insure that a 2% annual interest rate is always paid to the network, regardless of how many CBX are being staked at any given time allowing for a considerably higher interest rate to be awarded to those staking their CBX (consistently running the CBX Vault software).

Not yet but we will give a full 2 weeks notice once we release the new Vault 2.0 so everyone will have time to update.

Thanks for the info

Some good news for CryptoBullion, CBX has just been added to https://www.banx.io exchange.
(...)
Check out the exchange if you havent before, i'm hoping that this will another place i can trade CGB and help keep our options open for trading without restrictions.[/center]

It is good that they are transparent about their liquidity, but if you look on their liquidity page you'll see that the sum of cold and hot BTC wallet is 29% less (20 BTC) than what they owe their customers.

That doesn't look like an exchange where I want to put my money...

Just to clarify about that. I am working on a cold storage solution for public use which has about 50 btc in it (i think... something like that, i haven't had a chance to work on it in a couple months since I have a big project in the works ATM) (never keep all in one basket even if it is cold). This new system is not yet reflected in our liquidity as it is still a work in progress and doesn't have an api to hook into yet and I as the developer refuse to do like others do and use "Magic Numbers" to make things look good. Hence I just left a note at the top of the page lol

Hey Elambert,
If you are able to post to the UK, I would like to help out by handing some cards to the selected potentially interested individuals I meet and introduce to cryptocurrencies.
I'm sure many will relate that mostly we are met with disbelief, scepticism and ridicule. Your cards will add some authenticity to the exchange, and are a great conversation starter. What better way to introduce someone to cryptos than through our CBX itself!

Yea, the address generated by the app and funded with 10 bulls a few weeks back, is now showing zero balance within the app. I've checked the address using the block explorer and it has a 0.10 balance. So could be a connection issue to the network.

Nice to see all the banx.io votes. Not a lot of volume presently, but the restrictions occurring at Cryptsy are not an issue at Banx so this has potential for growth.

Just wanted to let the community know that I have discussed boosting CBX trade at Banx with them and they have agreed to run a 2 week promotional period for CBX in which they will not charge fees for trading. This period will be scheduled in accordance with our release of Vault v2.0 with PoSP and run up to our hard fork which will be scheduled for 2 weeks after release. No definitive date is set but we are still on schedule for Q4 release and getting closer every day.

Stay tuned for more details.

Hi CapnBDL! Our main effort at this moment is to test and apply finishing touches to the new Vault 2.0 which will include the long awaited PoSP; this is no small endeavour as it will include a completely revamped and modernized  interface...

also we are working hard distributing and shipping the Promo Cards around the globe, to make sure every one of the 2000 cards printed finds itself in the hands of a different person.

Long term, however, we are currently discussing projects outside the Crypto Currency world which would include CBX and bring onboard new users of our currency.

Cryptomoms... never seen this site before, this is so cool as I suspect that not many ladies come visit BCT! Maybe I should start a CBX thread there?

Ban on Bitcoin after Paris attacks? Well I am unsure of the role Bitcoin plays with these terrorists, or how much of this technology do they actually use; one thing for sure, if Bitcoin gets banned terrorists and all the bad guys of this world still have Cash, and gold!!!! So let's stop focusing on what evil people can do with BTC, if you remove BTC: Jihadists will still be in business.

Thirdly, yes, I think that Bitcoin is not being developed in the right directions - for all the potential it offers. Its not a new safer algorithm, a new guizmo, yet another portable and unbreakable USB wallet or a new mining device that will propel BTC outside of the stalemate it has been stuck in for years now.  BTC needs to be useful, and right now let's face it, its not that useful: BTC just looks like a nice idea and never got passed that stage unfortunately.

We won't work at developing BTC here, as we think CBX is simply a better platform to build the next app with: 1 minute blocks, low-inflation, interest bearing, etc... But it isn't these features in themselves that will propel CBX, it is what we will do with CBX. Something most Crypto launchers, dreamers and supporters forget. It's time to be creative, and CBX is the perfect platform for that! I have a few ideas, and this is what I was referring to in my earlier post.

My wallet cbx doesn't launch anymore since I upgraded to windows 10
:(

I used to run my CBX Vault under Windows 8.1, then when I updated to Windows 10, I recall I indeed had to reinitialize the files in the CryptoBullion folder. This can happen for many other weird reasons: to do this, make sure the Vault isn't running in the Task Manager, then copy your wallet.dat file in two more locations and finally delete all files in the CryptoBullion folder except wallet.dat of course.

Once the files of that folder are deleted I suggest to load the Blockchain Bootstrap files http://cryptobullion.io/storage-use/ (http://cryptobullion.io/storage-use/) to save some time updating your Vault. Start your Vault, it should be fine now: also this is a good opportunity to install the new version 1.3, if you have not done this already.

Morning, E. It's crude but effective.

The total crypto market-cap is at the bottom of the 'front page' of CMC -- the list of the top 100 coins. Btc's cap is at the top. Then do the math.

The point is that (a) IndiaMikeZulu has been following this ratio for over two years, and (b) although, as we all well know, the crypto 'terrain' has changed fantastically, it is roughly the case that the alt cap drops when Bitcoin spikes or begins to steadily appreciate, and then, if the price-rise continues, the alt cap zooms up. We've seen it (December 2013, I think) at 25-75.

And although there are details that we should discuss over a beer in The Crypto Folks Garden (behind my house here in rural Western Australia), I betcha that the alt-to-Btc ratio climbs to about 30-70 within two years.

Morning, E. It's crude but effective.

The total crypto market-cap is at the bottom of the 'front page' of CMC -- the list of the top 100 coins. Btc's cap is at the top. Then do the math.

Good analysis, I agree!

A good strategy to avoid the problem of picking which alts to invest in now is to buy shares in Coinomat's Index fund asset on the NXT AE, that way your spreading your investment over the top 20 alt coins. When BTC moons, alts will go up by higher % (including NXT), so it'll be a double sling-shot, and very user friendly. NXT is at an all time low now, so it's a win:win when the flip to bull market happens (mid 2016 I expect/hope)

Cryptopia tipping bot!

We have setup a tiping bot at the Cryptopia exchange, to make things more active over there for the CBX. The tipping bot will distribute .005 CBX to traders randomly every 30 minutes...

Enjoy!

On another note...

Is anyone still using Cryptsy? I am seeing a lot of rumors circling that BTC and LTC withdrawals are no longer processing. Curious if anyone in the community has any experience with this...?

I stopped trading there so can't confirm or refute.

Finite by Design, there's an 'Exchange Warning' up on the Uno main thread. Several days ago they noted that people seem to be buying Uno in order to bolt from Cryptsy -- Uno's price yesterday was over 20% higher than its other exchanges.

And Dnotes? a few hours ago, the buy-sell split on Poloniex was 1890-1738, but on Cryptsy 2509-2508. And the Dnotes guys are discussing the issue.

I have been trying to withdraw my BTC from Cryptsy for over 1 Month now, before the whole article saying end of November they started having withdrawal problems.

BTC & LTC you cannot withdraw but they haven't frozen the deposits for them hence once it is deposited it is stuck unless you cash out with the overpriced coins on their markets, do I need to remind anyone about CryptRush ? Cryptsy seems to be going down the "exact" same path.

I finally cashed out in another coin but probably lost money/profits by doing so, 1Month+ for BTC/LTC withdrawals is just ridiculous.

Even if you made profit by sending your alts there and selling them for BTC/LTC you would end up loosing most of the profits by buying coins like DOGE for 38satoshi instead of the normal markets that are going for 30satoshi to exit Cryptsy.

I got a similar error when I was trying to upgrade my Vault while the previous Vault was still running (there is a setting which minimizes the Vault instead of closing it completely, when hitting the close box). Maybe check the task manager and make sure the Vault application isn't running before attempting to update...

OK, seems that may have done the trick. Another problem I've noticed is that if I minimize to the tray.... I can't seem to ever get the main wallet window back even if I do Show/Hide...

I am having this same problem, it's not the window position. I have minimize on close checked. It works fine if you minimize it and have minimize to tray and not taskbar unchecked. But if you close it, once it is gone from the taskbar you can't get it to come back without closing it fully and restarting it, show/hide doesn't work. I'm on Windows 10 x64.

Guys,
I am seeing some chatter in other threads regarding possible issues with Cryptsy. Most likely this is just FUD. Cryptsy has been around for quite some time and has been a great ally for CBX.

That being said however, I just want to remind the community that the safest place for your CBX is in your personal Vault. Exchanges are meant for trading not storage so please be cautious with trusting any third party with your finances. Better safe than sorry.

Just wanted to refer back to this as there seem to be further developments at Cryptsy (BTC and LTC withdrawals no longer processing). The CBX wallet maintained by Cryptsy is still very large meaning a lot of people are taking a substantial risk of trusting a 3rd party despite some troubling signs.

Again, I would suggest keeping your CBX (and all other cryptos) in you personal wallet and moving to an exchange when you are ready to trade. This is the only safe way to protect yourself and keep control of your finances.

Additionally, PoSP it close to completion so you will not want to miss out on the staking opportunities by having your CBX in someone else's hands.

Sorry to hear this. Have you tried cancelling the withdrawal? I understand you can withdraw if you convert to an alt - at least currently.

Currently:
30 day minimum (1.2% annually) and 90 day max (1.5% annually)

PoSP (launching shortly):
1 hour minimum, no maximum
2% annual interest minimum which scales up reflective of how many CBX are actively staking every minute. i.e. if 1/10th of the CBX in existence are staking at a given time (100,000 of the approximately 1 million), those 100,000 would earn 10 times the standard yearly pos (their 2% plus the 2% from each coin not being staked) = 20%. So inflation will remain static at 2% per year.

If you are synching from the genesis block, you are far better off downloading the blockchain bootstrap file from the website and dropping it into your roaming folder. This will save you from having to download the entire blockchain history (takes a few days).

Well, I see things differently... I think that, in the near future, looking back at today's higher prices we are going to find today's CBX very cheap, compared to that time's prices !!!

Here is the rich list of CBX (still wrongfully labelled as CGB):  https://coinplorer.com/CGB/Addresses/0/Top (https://coinplorer.com/CGB/Addresses/0/Top) The first top address (113k) you see there does not belong to a rich person, it's the combined CBX balances at an exchange.

Am following the Cryptsy thing carefully -- not panic, just v. cautious. The chat in the chat room says it all. They are actively discussing What Alts You Can Still Get Out. Both Dnotes and Unobtanium have been trading at premiums (over their other exchanges) for days now. Uno has risen to 25% over its price elsewhere.

http://blockexplorer.cryptobullion.io/block/000000012a800f3c06217da9615ffc4afadfd57e0566fc2fa7620583c12e6975

Soo....why is it unconfirmed? It's just sitting there? Doesn't help me tho.

Edit, it is NOT part of the transaction. It is listed in the input/outputs but not part of the 2 transactions of that block. The only thing you can do at this point is get in touch with The Blocks Factory and let them know that they need to resend.

if you wait 24 hours, you can withdraw another 150 or so coins from cryptsy.  CBX now back in the top 100    :)

Someone from Cryptopia is asking this question and I was sure I saw something pass in here about it, but I can't find it...

We know the biggest CBX faucet is bulliongalore.com; I know there is another one - can someone point it to me please?
