Once the security hole is fixed can theymos re-enable avatars?

I'm sure they will be as soon as the vulnerability is sorted.

It's taking a very long time, I guess.

565  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [BETA-TEST][SAU BOUNTIES] Bringing back SauronRings, better than ever! on: December 21, 2013, 07:23:49 PM

SauronRings is coming back!  At the moment I'm having genesis block issues.
If you can help me you will receive a SauronRings bounty on the real net once the beta test is done.
Beta Testing
I will release only the source code for a public beta test.
In the public beta, each ring you forge will be worth 0.1 "real" rings.  There will be a ring bounty
for each bug or problem you report, depending on how major.  Once most bugs have been recorded,
I will fix them, restart the blockchain, and mine coins for those who participated in the public beta.
To claim your "real" rings just sign a message with your private key on the beta SauronRings.

I just looked at the round 31 account file to check my wordcount and noticed under "Devtome Earnings" that the line with my username, address, and wordcount has been deleted. I recently put subheadings on my user page on devtome because I had seen some other users do that and I abhor a long list without them, but could that be messing with the script that does the wordcount?

Yes it does mess with, because a heading looks like the end of the invoice section. Only put simple text in the invoice, not headings.

How can I run the scripts to get an up-to-date version of, with new analytics, word counts, etc.?

I would like to restart as well with 68 posts.

I went from 12 or what to 64 but nothing received so far. How does one apply for the payout? By PM or here? If here: from 12 to 64. Wallet: 1H46SyAGqGf993MAYaht5SpxnEp2XQVS7g


You need to PM Stunna, read the OP.

You don't need to PM to sign up though or re-sign up.

You have to PM to claim payment.

hey sorry to off topic, i was going to see fi you were bringing back saurens rings, i asked and they said they would be interested in them on  the scifi coin exchange, i still have the wallet and some rings to give out ot restart interest.


Sauron's rings are coming back!   Cheesy  I'm still interested.  I'm having some gb problems as said above and I would need some beta testers before public release.
570  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [DVC]DevCoin - Official Thread - Moderated on: December 20, 2013, 01:25:38 PM
Is this bounty still open?

The dvc/usd chart.

I've coded up a webserver that gets the averages from a few different places, but I couldn't find a long term history of DVC.

The chart is here:

It's filling up with data as I just reset it after testing, and it'll log and show data indefinitely. If people want more options etc, say what you like and I'll code it in. I'll make a few more tweaks to make it clearer what's what, but it's up and running now in any case.

EDIT: Obviously it looks a bit silly now but that's because data's just started should fill out soon enough Smiley

I have a database of prices if you need it.  It goes back for about only a couple of weeks though

There is an 18 share bounty for an exchange or marketplace.  There are three people eligible for the award, and here is how we plan to divide the shares:

Tagbond: 9 shares for devcoin integration
Sidhujag: 6 shares for working with Mark to get devcoin onto tag bonds exchange
EEh: 3 for tagbond site

Does that seem fair to all?

Also, @sidhujag, is mark the markm, or some other Mark?

Please reply with some feedback on the division, and if you have a dispute please add reasoning to why you should get more or less.

After four days pass with no objections, the shares will be officially put into the bounty file.

It really depends if you look at it like they never entered the market in the first place versus just suddenly plucking out all China exchanges in a single moment while the impact of the publicity still remained.

I think China publicity helped the price increase which even if it was a bubble still attracted a lot of new entrepreneurs and general public awareness, which in turn helps the long-term and short-term growth.

China was a bubble...
573  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Receiver 30 on: December 19, 2013, 10:27:45 PM

Does php have format statements? Or maybe a printf (or sprintf) type of thing? A way to tell it how many digits to display even if they turn out to be zeroes?

You are right!  Smiley

echo round($price2);
printf("%.2f"$price); ?>

I will change it on the new site.

To all:  I have not updated the music on the devcoin video because youtube is giving me trouble... I will keep trying though!

575  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Vanity Address for Altcoins, How are vanity addresses secure? on: December 19, 2013, 09:53:10 PM
All you would need to do is read the Bitcoin wiki's entry on vanitygen Tongue But yes, that's all you'd need to do. As I said, privtype is addrtype + 128 (so in the case of LottoCoin, privtype would be 177, because 49 + 128 = 177), with the exception of Securecoin where it's hardcoded to 128. scriptaddrtype, as far as I know, is -1 for everything other than Bitcoin.

 Cheesy  Thanks!

1) You generate a random 256-bit integer less than the SECP256k1 generator. You keep this secret. (Effectively, an ECDSA private key.)

2) You compute the corresponding EC point on the SECP256k1 curve. You share this with whoever is finding the vanity address for you. (This is the ECDSA public key that corresponds to the private key you generated in step one.)

3) The person working out the vanity address for you tries various 256-bit integers also less than the SECP256k1 generator. They compute the corresponding EC point and add it to the EC point you sent them (from step two). They then hash this and see if it produces the desired vanity address. They repeat this over and over until they find a 256-bit integer that works. They give this integer to you. (And the world, it need not be kept secret.)

4) You add the 256-bit integer they found to the 256-bit integer you generated in step 1 and reduce it modulo the SECP256k1 generator.

5) You now have the private key, and they don't. (And you can prove that they cannot generate the private key from just the information you gave them unless ECDSA is fundamentally broken.)

In ECDSA, you convert a private key to a public key by multiplying by the generator. Division is impossible.

The vanity address generation scheme above works because: (A+B)*G = AG + BG

You generate A and AG, but give them only AG.

They try various different B's, calculating the AG+BG for each one to find the right one for the vanity address.

They give you B. You can now compute A+B (the secret key corresponding to the public key AG+BG) but nobody else can since they do not know A.

Computing A from AG would mean breaking ECDSA fundamentally. All you gave them is AG, an ECDSA public key. If they could figure out the private key to your new account (A+B), they could also figure out A. So if they could figure out the private key to your vanity account, they could also figure out the private key you created in step 1. But all you gave them was the corresponding public key. So any compromise of the vanity account would mean they could compromise a private key given only its corresponding public key.

Could anyone explain this to me in simpler terms?

I believe it qualifies for the 18-share DVC-USD chart.

Can you force the display of the full eight digits after the decimal?

It took a moment to deduce that maybe you are using eight digit accuracy but that your format is losing the trailing zeroes, the current per devcoin value of devcoins was shown as 0.0000011 BTC instead of as (for example, at a wild guess, assuming you really are using eight digit accuracy) 0.00000110 BTC.

Those of us used to quickly visually scanning the number of satoshis are subject to a bit of cognitive dissonance when we see what looks like 11 satoshis instead of 110...


I am using php, so I just use the round() function.  Should I change the interval from whole BTC to satoshis?  That might be better.

I also am upgrading hosting and getting a domain!

It will be available in about 24 hrs

Interesting question.  They can't manually process bets, so they must make it automated.  I don't know how though
578  Other / Meta / . on: December 19, 2013, 03:26:53 PM
I guess the only way to get on the list is to have someone already on the list add you to their list.
579  Other / Meta / Re: Default Trust, how to get on? on: December 19, 2013, 03:54:58 AM
If you're on default trust your trust actually counts.  If not, my ratings don't really mean much to others.  It would be nice if there was a system in which if you have had 5 or more successful trades you could get on the list.

Then what if someone was to just make 5 accounts and leave themselves feedback? Your feedback does count, anyone who is doing a deal with someone is going to check their untrusted feedback as well, and check out the details before doing the trade. Just because untrusted feedback doesn't effect the little number next to your name, doesn't mean it doesn't count.

I guess it might be better if 5 people on default trust added trust to you, to get onto the list.  Untrusted has a negative connotation so some people just look at trusted.
