1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Payment protocol: specify transaction inputs? on: January 29, 2015, 08:39:41 PM
Unfortunally the FAQ on the payment protocol thread is locked, but one comment got my attention:

"Impress with this protocol" ??

My primary motivation for the payment protocol can be seen in this mock-up of multi-signature transaction authorization:
  https://moqups.com/gavinandresen/no8mzUDB/p:af7339204

I want much more secure wallets, but we can't get there unless the "who am I paying" piece is authenticated.

You should save the "Gavin is trying to impress evil institutional investors" mud-slinging for when I get around to laying out the argument for increasing the block size, because that would be closer to the truth.

I tested the payment protocol waters and I'm able to create payment requests with arbitrary output scripts, and I was wondering if there is a way to set transaction inputs as well, similar to what the quoted mock-up hints with "From wallet: Capital Spending Account (current balance: 198.4 BTC)"? Say I want to request that a user signs a full transaction with inputs and outputs, e.g. to redeem dust, would that be possible somehow? As far as I can see it is not, but this comment really made me wonder.. Smiley
2  Other / Meta / Image proxy and file names on: November 15, 2014, 06:25:05 PM
I'm not sure, if this is just me, but when downloading images via Chrome the suggested filename is "Download.[jpg|png]" and when using Firefox, it's "ip.bitcointalk.org.[jpg|png]".


This is a bit annoying and I was wondering, if there is a way around this to get either the original file name or modify the image proxy such that it appends a timestamp or likewise?

5  Bitcoin / Project Development / Coin Sweeper - Redeem your multisig outputs on: April 16, 2014, 12:59:18 PM
Hi all,

I created a simple website which allows to lookup any unspent output from every address:

http://redeem.bitwatch.co/

Furthermore a raw transaction can be created which collects and combines unspent outputs whereby outputs from multiple addresses can be used.

The most important feature: standard multi signature outputs are included and it's very easy to redeem Mastercoin or Counterparty dust.



The basis for this was sipa's awesome address indexed Bitcoin branch which received some further additions.

Please note: this is experimental and feedback is appreciated. Smiley
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [GIVEAWAY] MASTERCOIN FAUCET - DEx special for bitcointalk.org on: January 23, 2014, 11:50:51 PM

The Mastercoin protocol is an additional layer on top of the Bitcoin protocol. Multi signature Bitcoin transactions are used to encode data and to enable a whole set of new possibilities without bloating the blockchain with unspendable outputs.

Mastercoins facilitate the creation and trading of smart properties and user currencies, as well as other types of smart contracts. They serve as the exchange point between Bitcoin, smart properties and smart contracts created on top of the Mastercoin protocol.

If you never heard about Mastercoin before, please visit mastercoin.org, the Mastercoin thread on bitcointalk.org or /r/Mastercoin. A detailed Mastercoin specification is available here.


The Mastercoin faucet

The Mastercoin faucet rewards users with free Mastercoin and Test Mastercoin. Four authentication methods are available to claim a reward: Reddit, GitHub, bitcointalk.org and Twitter.


Distributed exchange testing special

In the light of the broader testing of the distributed exchange, the first 100 Test Mastercoin rewards are doubled and users can receive up to 0.0025 MSC and 0.1 TMSC.


Authentication via bitcointalk.org:

To claim a reward via bitcointalk.org visit mastercoin-faucet.com/bitcointalk-intro:




Copy the verification token and go to your bitcointalk.org profile. Click on "Forum Profile Information" in the left navigation:




Paste the verification token in one of the fields: Personal Text, Location, Signature, Website title, Skype, Bitcoin address or other contact info. Confirm:




Copy any URL to your bitcointalk.org profile and paste it into the box on the Mastercoin faucet website:




Insert a Bitcoin address you fully control (no shared one) to finish the process and receive the reward.





Additional resources and more information about sending Mastercoin

The tutorial Sending and Receiving MasterCoins for Dummies or the Mastercoin Wiki is probably a good follow up to learn more about sending Mastercoin.

More general talk, discussion and information about Mastercoin is available in the Mastercoin thread on bitcointalk.org or the subreddit /r/Mastercoin.

The Mastercoin Blog is definitely also worth a read and there is Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn and a group on Facebook.
7  Other / Meta / Request: marketplace subboard: domains on: November 01, 2013, 04:08:20 PM
There are quite a lot auctions for domains and most of them don't find a buyer, so this simply stuffes the auction subboard imho.

My suggestion is to create a new subboard for domains, domains with an actual website and traffic behind can stay in "auctions" though.

According to labcoin their team is going to hold a public Q&A session on IRC tomorrow to discuss the controversy surrounding Labcoin. The time for this session is yet to be announced by labcoin.

To get the most out of it this thread is intended to collect questions and topics to discuss.

If you think this is a good idea, please post here so we can refer to those questions tomorrow.

Please use Labcoin's thread for discussion to keep this thread as clean as possible.

Because it's in our all interest to get explicit and direct answers, please don't be too vague or phrase the questions too general.

kleeck has voluntarily agreed to moderate the Q&A as discussed in #labcoin.

Sidenote: the nicknames "TheSwede75", "labcoin_dev" and "labcoin" were registred on Freenode, but not from a member of Labcoin. Don't get fooled - it's not them.
11  Other / Beginners & Help / JSON RPC PHP + blockchain.info + verifymessage on: September 19, 2013, 01:52:44 AM
Hi all,

I'm trying to find out how to verify a message and I'm using the jsonRPCClient combined with blockchain.info. While other stuff works like a charm, I'm unable to verify a message and the result is always false. This is the code I'm using:

Code:
<?php
require_once 'jsonRPCClient.php';

$user "76213f46-6558-4c7f-bcf4-25f6f75e5dd4";
$pass "testtest23";
$host "blockchain.info";
$port 80;
 
$rpc = new jsonRPCClient("http://{$user}:{$pass}@{$host}:{$port}");

$address "14cj3L2PAKd8WTN3zPhwX9qawTEnayqwar";
$signature "GyQDxL58MYXz6t3JKRWPVVq26wx5BjFIQ/CtLEaGbvZ+GId0c6etp8DbFCPCcttNISBnVAokVnRtmvPHLATmPhg=";
$message "test";

$addrvalid $rpc->validateaddress($address);
$msgsigned $rpc->verifymessage($address$signature$message);

echo 
"<p>".var_dump($addrvalid)."</p><p>".var_dump($msgsigned)."</p>";
?>

Any hint is appreciated as well as other solutions. Thanks!

P.S.: it's a dummy account, don't even try.. Wink

Edit: actually it would be very sufficient, if I'd have a function like verify($message, $signature) -> address.

bitcointalk.org is neither translatable by translate.google.com nor translate.baidu.com and with a growing international community it would be great to sneak into local community subforums, but this is mostly not very satisfying due to language barriers.

Manual translates are time expensive and thus I request that this forum becomes translatable by the above mentioned websites.
14  Economy / Auctions / [AUCTION] 20x AVALON chips from SebastianJu's group buy batch #2 on: July 07, 2013, 05:34:08 PM
Hello,

I'm auctioning my order for 20x Avalon chips from [Group Buy] Avalon ASIC Chips (SebastianJu). My slot is batch #2 and my paying address was 1Fy67KkCqcp8suXV7CmxVYYF294c369XwZ.

2013-06-13: Batch 5 ordered - Status "Chips ordered" | Batch 6 starts
2013-06-09: Batch 1, 2, 3 and 4 changed their status from "Chips ordered" to "Sample-chip-shipped"
2013-06-04: Batch 2, 3 and 4 changed their status from "Processing" to "Chips ordered"
2013-05-27: Batch 4 ordered - Status "Processing" | Batch 5 starts

2013-05-18: Batch 2 ordered - Status "On hold" | Batch 3 starts

2013-05-02: First payments roll in because zefirs group buy has stopped now.
2013-04-25: Creation of Group Buy with Batch 1

It is expected that batch 1-4 will be shipped together, because Avalon seems to process multiple chip orders together.


Picture from sample chips:


More pictures can be found here (1), here (2), here (3), here (4) and here (5).


What can you do with those chips?

You can either build your own ASIC miner or check out List of Avalon-ASIC-Miner-Developers and Assembler. The development looks very promising and I'm sure you'll find something for your needs.


Proof of my ownership of that order:

Code: (Message)
dexX7; 20; 1.72; 1Fy67KkCqcp8suXV7CmxVYYF294c369XwZ

You can look up the order here and verify my message here.


Auction rules:

You buy my order slot from [Group Buy] Avalon ASIC Chips (SebastianJu), which means all rules and terms from that thread apply. I won't ship the chips to you and will neither be responsible for any problems asscociated with Avalon, the chips or the group buy.

Within 24 hours after the payment has been received, I will instruct SebastianJu to accept you as the new buyer and forward your user handle + payment address. Please note: you should be able to sign a message with your payment address, so your ownership of that address is without doubt. If you wish to use another address for your chip order than your payment address, please contact me before paying. You should then contact SebastianJu and tell him your shipping and receiving address.

If the buyer fails to deliver payment, I will offer the order to the second highest bidder. If that fails too, I will open the auction again.

You can only bid on all 20x chips, I won't split the order.

I expect payment within 24 hours after the auction has ended to 1Fy67KkCqcp8suXV7CmxVYYF294c369XwZ.


Auction end

This auction will end on friday, june 12th 2013 at 20:00 UTC/GMT or when fixed price is filled.

Timer removed. End time: 2013-07-12+15:00:00


Bidding and price

Bids start at 0.2 BTC/chip (total 4 BTC for all chips).

Bidding increment is 0.005/chip (total 0.1 BTC per increment for all chips).

I offer a fixed price of 0.35 BTC/chip to end the auction immediately.


Feel free to ask any question and good luck!

It would be very great, if we could search for threads created by a specific user.

We can look up all posts an user has published, but I don't see any way to filter these results, to only see threads started by that user and I really miss it.
