3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [BTG][DEV][DISCUSSION] New developmental paths for BitGem, a brief reflection on: December 29, 2013, 12:46:52 PM



DISCUSSION: BITGEM NEW PATHS

BitGem https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=207008.msg2166865 is an real scarce crypto, just near of 23,900 BTGs are out there. For future development and providing add-value, I am planing 3 mainlines, not mutually exclusives, emboding gem properties into transaction scope: granularity, tagging and colored.

- transaction granularity: because gems are trading in "brut", "sticky" transactions would let trading whole gems, rather ammounts of BitGems. This "packing" of gems could be rewarded with an aditional stake reward, fostering the stake of big gems too.

- tagged coins: related to granularity, it would let to tag the gem with all 4Cs properties and conform the gem in blockchain. Here the exchange would be fixed.

- colored coins: provide true colored coins (diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald), with independent or fix exchange, so it could be automatically self-arbitred or exchanged in a secundary stock market.


It would be nice, guys, if you are a btg holder or enthusiat take active part in this debate.

I am planning an update implying sending bitgems by means of BitGem Wallet.

You can take advantage of future development for making contributions supporting this project to this BTC address:

BTG BITGEM AWARENESS INITIATIVE
BitGem https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=207008.620 is an scarce crypto, for this reason it is not well known in community.

For this reason, a new alt logo emboding the symbol of BitGem is presented here. Current ruby gem logo is nice, but this one is simple, minimalistic and can reach more people. If it is widely adopted, it will be added into next BitGem GemWallet release.

If you are an BitGem enthusiastic, feel free to add anywhere.

Aditionally, an hybrid logo is proposed. All suggestions will be well received.

Regards

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ANN] BTG: Announcing GemWallet, the wallet for gemstones. on: June 26, 2013, 09:20:32 PM
GEMWALLET

I have buil this gemwallet for quering the gemstones in your BTGs. It shows your BTG balance into diamods, rubys, sapphires and emerald, selecting any subset of these. BTG balance is distribuited equitativelly between gems selected. You can set any property like carat, color, clarity, cut, etc, displaying the balance resulting.

The only limitation is you must to have at least 1 BTG in your current balance. Otherwise, controls are deactivated and you just see default conversions.

Get Fun!

4CS GEMSTONE MODEL

This wallet implements a basic 4Cs Gemstone Model. 4Cs model is a grading system for taxing gemstones, including diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald. The 4Cs are Carat, Color, Clarity and Cut. Shape property have been take into account too.


CARAT.

A carat is an weight unit and is equal to 0.2 grams. Usually, there is an exponential relation of value wih carats.


COLOR.

Is a graded scale, from 'D' to 'Z', beeing D the best grad and Z the worst.

In, diamonds, colorless is better and perfect colorless would be D.

In, rubies, sapphires and emeralds, more definited hue color are more valued, and more intense colors (saturated) are most valued too. Best defined, intense, briliant  colors are graded from D (best) to Z.


CLARITY.

Clarity is referred to the lack of inclussions in gem. To most invisble and smaller inclussions, gem is most valued . The Clarity Scale contains 11 grades,

    FL: Flawless  - No inclusions or blemishes are visible to a skilled grader using 10 magnification
    IF: Internally Flawless - No inclusions and only blemishes are visible to a skilled grader using 10 magnification
    VVS1, VVS2: Very, Very Slightly Included - Inclusions are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10 magnification
    VS1,  VS2:  Very Slightly Included () - Inclusions are minor and range from difficult to somewhat easy for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification
    SI1, SI2:  - Inclusions are noticeable to a skilled grader under 10x magnification
    I1, I2, and I3 - Inclusions are obvious under 10 magnification and may affect transparency and brilliance


CUT

Cut is referred to the symmetry, finish, style and proportiosn of cut. Just graded like EXCELLENT, VERY_GOOD, GOOD, FAIR, POOR.


SHAPE

Some of most popular forms are valued too. While round shapes are preferred over all, shape is a a personal choice  rather.

Shapes included are :

    ROUND,
    OVAL,
    PEAR,
    MARQUISE,
    HEART,
    SQUARE,
    SQUARE_EMERALD,
    SQUARE_CUSHION,

    TAPERED_BAGUETTE,
    RECTANGLE,
    EMERALD_SHAPE,
    CUSHION,
    TRIANGLE,
    TRILLION.

FIRST CRYPTO-CURRENCY TRADING COLORED COINS

The BTG wallet allows you to create colored gems with various characteristics and qualities. These new gems can easily be created in the wallet and the new gems can be sent to other BTG users. There are four broad types of gems you can create, Diamonds, Rubies, Saphires and Emeralds.


BITGEM: TRADING COLORED GEMS

Launched new version 0.4.9_ALPHA1, providing gem trading features. This is still in ALPHA stage, please use it at your own risk and always backup your wallet.

UPDATED JUN 14 2014 Download NEW ALPHA Release v.0.4.9-ALPHA1: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9-QvC1XNoslUUpDZUk0U1EwM0E/edit?usp=sharing

BTG can be converted into Diamonds (DMD), Rubys (RBY), Sapphires (SPH) or Emeralds (EMD). There are two processes involved:

1) Create gems. Gem-creation is symbolized BTG -> {DMD, RBY, SPH, EMD}. It is the process of making  DMD, RBY, SPR, EMD with specific carat, color, clarity, cut and shape properties.





Modular Wallet

It is done extending bitcoin original wallet, by means of an extension of wallet source. So, extending original wallet (wallet.dat), it is possible to storing gem creation information into extended wallet (gemwallet.dat). The BTG wallet has been created by extending the functions of the bitcoin wallet. All of your gems are stored in your wallet.dat file, which is the wallet backup file.

WARNING:  If you delete or lose your gemwallet.dat file you will lose your gems. Always backup your wallets.

2) Sending gems. 2) Sending gems. Bitgeminization is symbolized {DMD, RBY, SPR, EMD} -> BTG. It is the opposite of gem creation, and it is carried out when an incoming BTG transaction is converted to existing gems.





The aim of current development is to provide a native method for sending colored gems, ie. DMD, RBY, SPH, EMD.

Gem creation and Bitgeminization (sending gems) processes are being developed and refined for a future wallet.





DISCUSSION: BITGEM NEW PATHS

BitGem https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=207008.msg2166865 is a scarce crypto, just about 32,000 BTGs are out there. For future development and to provide added-value, I am planning 3 mainlines, not mutually exclusive, embodying gem properties into any transaction: granularity, tagging and color.

- transaction granularity: because gems are traded like raw gems, "sticky" transactions would allow trading whole gems, rather than fractional amounts of BitGems. This "packing" of gems could be rewarded with an additional stake reward, to encourage the staking of big gems.

- tagged coins: relates to granularity. It would allow you to tag the gem with all 4Cs properties and store the gem in the blockchain.

- colored coins: provide true colored coins (diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald), with an independent or modified exchange, so it could be automatically exchanged in a secondary market.

I am planning an update allowing sending of bitgems through the BitGem Wallet. => DONE !

SIMPE 4C's GEMSTONE MODEL



Lets you transform your BTGs into the different type of gemstones, diamond, ruby, sapphire, emerald. 4Cs model take the 4 gemstone properties: Carat, Clarity, Color and Cut and modifies your gems using those parameters.

General information about 4Cs model is based on http://www.collectorfinejewelry.com/quality_4cs.htm.

CARAT

A carat is a weight unit and is equal to 0.2 grams. Usually, there is an exponential relation of value with carats.

In diamonds, colorless is better and perfectly colorless would be D.

In rubies, sapphires and emeralds, more defined hue colors are more valued, and more intense colors (saturated) are more valued too. Well defined, intense, brilliant  colors are graded from D (best) to Z.




CLARITY

Clarity refers to the lack of inclusions or flaws in a gem. The Clarity Scale contains 11 grades,

    FL: Flawless  - No inclusions or blemishes are visible to a skilled grader using 10 magnification
    IF: Internally Flawless - No inclusions and only blemishes are visible to a skilled grader using 10 magnification
    VVS1, VVS2: Very, Very Slightly Included - Inclusions are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10 magnification
    VS1,  VS2:  Very Slightly Included () - Inclusions are minor and range from difficult to somewhat easy for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification
    SI1, SI2:  - Inclusions are noticeable to a skilled grader under 10x magnification
    I1, I2, and I3 - Inclusions are obvious under 10 magnification and may affect transparency and brilliance

CUT

Cut refers to the symmetry, finish, style and proportion of cut. Just graded as EXCELLENT, VERY_GOOD, GOOD, FAIR, POOR.



SHAPE

While round shapes are generally more valued, shape preference is a a personal choice.

Shapes included are :

    ROUND,
    OVAL,
    PEAR,
    MARQUISE,
    HEART,
    SQUARE,

    TRILLION.



BTG BITGEM AWARENESS

A new logo embodying the symbol of BitGem is shown here. The current ruby gem logo is nice, but this one is simple, minimalistic and can reach more people. If it is widely adopted, it will be added into next BitGem GemWallet release.

If you are an BitGem enthusiastic, feel free to use the logo anywhere.

Additionally a hybrid logo would be nice. Any suggestions are welcome.
