I cannot access my waves inside my Nano Ledger - The exchange app which I've installed on Windows 7 does not see the Ledger or anyway does not offer me the chance to "import account" as outlined in instructions. WTF? The process should be a no-brainer and yet I'm stuck for one hour already. This totally sucks.
Any ideas?

I've seen Obyte has now started a discussion on Twitter/Reddit on the them of the draw - to continue or not this distribution lottery or to change it into perhaps a daily or even a hourly draw. As I've said in the past, I'd be in favor of either abolishing the lottery, or perhaps turn it into a daily/hourly one, which at least would benefit many more people. Concerns of price dumping if the lottery is abolished are quite irrelevant in my view - sooner or later the distribution will end and we'll have to face the market anyway.

Congratulation to the whole community for the airdrop, and even more for what it actually means. Now Bancor should be decoupled from ETH - as far as the market is concerned. I wonder when the price will finally take off for real.

The funds are not meant to give away to institutions, they are meant to be distributed to users.

I didn't think I should explain it in full, but since you don't get it I will. Obyte's original plan was to have institutions to act as witnesses. Ask Tonych if you don't believe it. This is difficult, as Tonych lately said. Nevertheless, this goal should still be pursued. Offering bytes to them could ease things. Anyway, they would not accept them if they are not interested, since they wouldn't understand the usefulness of accepting.  It is written "distribution do Institution" but it reads "onboarding institution."

Do you have proof (actual data) that draw airdrop is harming the project or that's just your opinion?

Only my skills in logic, but I understand this will sound very mysterious to you.
As of the argument that it is not producing adoption - which is actually my point - this is self evident, all the bytes go to single people who have already adopted Obyte, which means zero new adopters added.

* draw airdrop [...] motivates people to hold the bytes, exactly what some people asked for, a motivation to hold.

Yes, it will motivate idiots. You are a dev I guess, have you ever heard of the laws of probability? Lotteries appeal only to VERY stupid people who can't understand probabilities. You have usually a higher chance of getting in a car accident than to win at a lottery - so to base your actions on the hope to win a lottery is totally stupid. Moreover, why would you have to win a "positive" lottery? Perhaps the lottery you end up winning a negative lottery instead - ie the car accident one. So my question now is: is Obyte's plan that of selecting idiots as preferred holders? I guess you know how natural selection works.
By the way, I am holding my bytes - but NOT because of the lottery. In spite of the lottery. I hold bytes because I believe in the project, which is NOT a stupid reason to hold bytes - as it instead would be the lottery reason.

* Developer contest for Autonomous agents happens also after every 2 weeks.
* Around 2-3 GB per day is distributed on World Community Grid
* There is also Real Name attestation

I have acknowledged that there are good ways of distribution, and I deeply respect that. I was just asking for more in substitution of the idiotic way. If there is no new good way, just keep the bytes until a good way appears. I've mentioned the Hedera Hashgraph example for a good reason: patience is an option.

* Then there is grants program, which is not only for developers, anyone can write a proposal project document, but not many do. I guess it is too much work to actually do something that would benefit the community, everybody just wants stuff for free.

I have to admit I was unaware of the grants for non-developers and I apologize for that. Happy to hear there is this option. Perhaps this part should be put in better evidence for the community.

You can come up with better methods and share it with the community, but you probably won't come up with anything better (more viral and less abused)

If I'll get any precise idea I surely will. I agree it is not easy. The only easy thing to do is to abolish the stupid lottery.

All I can see is that you think that somebody should just give you free bytes for actually not doing anything really, just for writing a random misinformed Bitcointalk post.

You are a dev but you can't properly read or count or both or more likely you may have problems to understand what you've read. Read again. Read better. I've been asking just for 2 bytes - or 2 cents, at your choice. It's probably one of the rare cases in Obyte where to send this "free money" has higher fees that the value of what you would be actually sending.

It is so painful to watch such a good project getting down to the most trivial level by distributing bytes through a lottery. Among all the ways I could think at, this is probably the stupidest. It does NOT create adoption. It doesn't motivate anyone intelligent to do anything useful for the project, as only idiots with zero understanding of probabilities believe they can win at a lottery.
It pisses off 99.99% of the holders who never win - which means every week they feel they always lose. Thank you Obyte. Psychology anyone? Obyte may have superb coders, but certainly when it comes to notions of psychology it totally sucks. Zero. Nada. Nichts. ничего. 没什么
Other projects out there, like Hedera Hashgraph, have prepared accurate decades-long plans for distributing their coins and achieve decentralization. It's amazing how accurate such plans are (this doesn't mean that their plans don't have flaws, which they have, but at least it's a well thought plan)
I know your objection that you ALSO have good plans of distribution - tech bounties etc.
Fine, then stop with the stupid lottery nonsense and expand your bounty plans. Or try to onboard big institutions and fund them with bytes. Or if you really cannot think at new useful ways to distribute bytes then PAY with bytes people who CAN.
Since you are coders you can think only at making bounties for coders - how stupid can a genious be? Make bounties for the tasks you are totally incompetent for!

Have you ever heard of unknown unknowns? You seem to be rather blind towards the things you ignore - ie you even ignore that you ignore them. Otherwise you would have set bounty programs time ago to reward people able to do what you obviously can't. Or perhaps, as coders you intimately despise any skills which is not connected to coding - and this is why you'd pay bounties only for coders.
So childish.
So first of all please abolish this stupid, useless lottery which is harming the project by waisting bytes that could be spent usefully.
Second of all, pay me a bounty for having suggesting you one first right thing to do.
My two cents - or bytes.

That is a fair question. At this point for staking in browser there is no way to use it encrypted so the security is only in the hands of the computer user (have a good AV solution like BItDefender).
Best practice to avoid this is run a very small VM in which you install Linux terminal miner and use encrypted wallet for staking. But this takes a higher degree of knowledge.

This is not exactly a mass adoption scenario.
My sensation is that this is a project by nerds for nerds, all of them dreaming for a mass adoption without being willing to do their homework on what is necessary in the real world for a mass adoption of a currency.
You have built a Ferrari. Cooool! Supercool! Ooops, it doesn't have the wheels, sorry, well, who cares. The cool part of a car aren't the wheels anyway.
This is a crypto coin without any security, where you can't protect the wallet. A car without wheels.
Well, but it's a cool Ferrari.

Is there a way to protect the browser webdollar wallet while you are staking? Otherwise in case of viruses, hackers etc, it becomes too dangerous once you'd have some real value in play.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Obyte: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: June 04, 2019, 10:59:34 AM
Is there any honest development still going into this project? I was a big believer in it earlier, bought a bunch, and now see it's just totally dusted. Pretty disheartening.

Development happens on Github, all the code is open-source, so you can see what is going on
Just month ago, there was a huge wallet update, which fixed many small bugs that the wallet had and also introduced prosaic contracts
Next big change is already on testnet

Only the biggest news are posted on Bitcointalk, but these get buried behind FUD very quickly.
If you want to know what is actually going on then join Discord, Reddit or subscribe to newsletter.

A lot of development is happening with Obyte. Just think at the prosaic contracts, which alone is a tool theoretically able to change the way ordinary people do ordinary contracts worldwide. If they only knew. It will take time I guess.

I see from the previous posts that I'm not the only one who cannot get the PoS to work at all. I've been leaving the browser open for one week mining webdollars as I was on travel and when I've come back not a sincle coin had been mined. And I have a few hundred of thousand coins to stake there - LoL.
Farewell to a lot of expensive electricity.

This coin is a farce, not just because it does not keep its promises and it does not work, but because the team is so arrogantly in denial of that and they are continuing to praise their * amazing * technical skills, without any reality check whatsoever - which means the problems are not getting adressed and they are not getting solved.
So much waisted time. A real pity.

CosmosCR looks like a really cool project but I don't understand why the community has suddenly gone so silent and nobody is answering to inquires any more... Thread seems to be dying....
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] CosmosCR [$CYBR] 🌌Virtual reality world, NFT's, Data solution#blockchain on: March 29, 2019, 08:32:20 AM
Is there any one pager depicting the status of the project? I've been here months ago and I can't read the whole discussion, and moreover the OP is now totally inaccurate.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] CosmosCR [$CYBR] 🌌Virtual reality world, NFT's, Data solution#blockchain on: February 05, 2019, 10:46:07 AM
Deciding to cancel the ICO is a tough but wise decision. 99% of people out there have probably already lost 99% of their money buying tokens in ICOs in 2017-2018 which has made them more cautious.
Moreover, projects which rely only on community engagement and no ICO gain usually an unmatched level of trust in the community.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Obyte: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: January 21, 2019, 06:36:42 PM
Nice rebranding, even though I find that the words byte and bit are too inflated in the cryptospace - too many coins have those words in their names - so a more radical change of name could have been more effective to better stand out from the crypto-crowd.

Anyway I guess now you should adjust the Obyte signatures for Bitcointalk for those supporters like me who like to wear it even though there is no signature campaign as a motivation.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] CosmosCR [$CYBR] 🌌Virtual reality world, NFT's, Data solution#blockchain on: January 13, 2019, 11:56:40 AM

Yea i remember the old days with Simcity ,Rollercoaster Tycoon, Anno 1902 and Age of Empires. I dont play a lot games anymore, cause i have almost no free time  Cool.
Spended hours building stuff to just start all over again.

OMG if you have played Simcity you must be almost my age. That is the last game I've ever played with, one life ago  Smiley Would be great to have features or bubbles of reality or sub-worlds which would function as games as addictive as Simcity inside the CosmosCR virtual world. Meta-virtual worlds withing a virtual world.

OK, that's yours, but the top 100 averages probably have on average at least 1k GBYTE, meaning the top 100 probably have 100x greater probability to win than any peon. It just seems like a game for whales.
The better solution is only attested user can enjoy the draw.
People are more motivated to verify themselves  Wink

I'd have no problem in attesting my wallet, and was even planning to do it, but not exactly using the address where I'm keeping all my funds. So I guess this lottery makes little sense for me. I'm allergic to lotteries anyway - it's dangerous to hope to win a lottery because you never know WHICH lottery you will end up winning - and most of the lotteries out there are just waiting to get someone killed.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: December 02, 2018, 02:51:58 PM
Max Kordek (or actually Lisk Foundation) owns 17 377.989853045 GByte
You continue to demonstrate your ignorance Dec 31, 2016  62242 GByte Dec 1, 2018

Not sure why these numbers don't match, but 62k is still 9.4% of current circulation supply and 6.2% of total supply.

If he did buy 45k as additional for the Lisk Foundation then it's great, at least someone influential believes in Byteball and doesn't come to whine here all the time.

Seems they did get more because 2017 report shows more than 2016

Interesting, did anyone investigate, by checking the byteball addresses of those large holders of concurrent projects, if it is them to have constantly dumped bytes over the months?
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: November 11, 2018, 06:39:47 PM
Nobody is doing the project a favour if deficits are always beautified.

That's why it took almost two years to finally use other names instead of byteball, bytes and blackbytes.

Critics are the most important capital for a project. Where this leads if you ignore them penetratingly can be seen here.

Bite ball offers solutions that nobody currently needs (if at all). But where are those you need?

There won't be mass adoption if you don't focus on the current benefit.

It's true that critics with reason is so much more important than brainless hype for the long term success of a project. However a continuos daily (or even hourly) whining on the levels of "OH MY GOSH I DIDN'T LAMBO YET SO THIS COIN IS A SHIT" is frankly boring and scarcely useful. It must be said that this level of losers posts is quite common these days across the ANN threads of this forum, as most of the coins out there have lost between 80% and 99% of their ATH price and soo many people are soo sorry they didn't dump at ATH and then lambo.
Byteball's developement is moving forwards at a nice pace - that's the only important issue here.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: 6 reasons why future ICOs will use Byteball instead of Ethereum (+screenshots) on: November 06, 2018, 03:44:24 PM
I don't agree with your point of view. I think Ethereum will decline with the decline of ICO. There is no such thing that can be surpassed. Replication is not a business, and the emergence of STO will change the cryptocurrency market.

The decline of ICOs are right now just the decline of ICOs on Ethereum, Because ETH is depreciating sharply as a consequence of too many ICO's teams selling ETH worth hundreds Millions of $ which they have raised in the ICOs. This crisis of Ethereum could prove very useful for Byteball becoming a serious competitor as a platform for ICOs.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][WEBD] 🌍 WebDollar - Currency of the Internet | Mining directly in browser on: November 06, 2018, 03:35:23 PM
Now there is no staking, just  POW mining. For you to be in only one pool use the  pool long link and don't choose the pool from the drop-down table in consensus ( (check Telegram for full list of long links of pools)
When POS will be added, as it will be hybrid, you will have to stake your WEBDs in order to participate in the process. But in the same time for the POW blocks you will also be able to mine like you do now with CPUs.
The percentage of POS blocks was discussed to be 20 followed by 10 POW blocks, and so on.

Any infos on when the PoS will be implemented? More, will it be possible to leave the wallet open for PoS while avoiding to produce PoW?

Be being an open source project and community based, we no longer want to give deadlines for certain features. There are no deadlines in big projects like Bitcoin, Ethereum etc... Moreover, we didn't have any ICO. Indeed the Proof of Stake test net branch allows you to mine POS and POW separately. You can exclude one mining or another one. POS will work from browser directly.

Well, community based means actually community based, so keeping the community up to date with any news of interest should be the priority number one of the team, which reading the history of posting here seems not really. This aspect has definetly to be improved here if you want to keep a community around your project beyond your local Romanian Telegram group.
