Huge, huge thanks to all the contributors to this version. Absolutely massive change log and it wouldn't be possible to keep Bitcoin up to speed without the help of our fantastic community.

Their Telegram channel is full of people who are also against the recent change. Samoraui support replies that fiat display support is not going back to their wallet even if many people demand it. I doubt that anyone has an APK file of an older version, what a shame.

Weird attitude. I'm all for nudging people along but to actively deny them something they still want seems a bit silly. They could at least retain it and make it something you have to seek out and opt in to.

A wallet should be a utility first, a pose second.

I don't see why their decision wasn't to just add a toggle to display countervalue and default it to "off". That way you can push your view but not remove features.

While I applaud the effort that was probably put into this, do not run programs on your computer when you don't know where they're coming from. That said, the source code is on GitHub and it should be easy to look through and see that nothing malicious is going on here.

Edit: On a first look though the git repo I didn't find anything suspicious, but I encourage others to do the same.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: New coins supported on Ledger Nano S! on: October 03, 2018, 11:39:29 PM
Most of these coins I haven't even heard of - and yet large, popular communities like Monero still don't have support.

I think adding Monero (XMR) support would move forward the cryptocurrency community a lot more than any of these coins that are largely speculative.

The last time I checked they were actively working on adding Monero support. The roadblock is writing the code to sign the transactions on the device, because it's very different than other coins. "Shitcoins" can be added quickly and in large numbers mostly because they are simple derivations of existing coins that already have Ledger support.

Nope, from what I said, there is always profit on every gambling site, more over if they have this huge traffic as you have right here. From so many similar wagering contest you should gain good profit to share for every winners here. 50% is really a good deal to have and that is why you wagering contest always succeed because of this extra prizepool. Many sites will be jealous on this kindness

It is just matter of time when you are going to gai  back from your loss( if only there is a little bit loss ) Cheesy

The house edge used to be 0.5% as far as I can remember so giving people 50% of the house edge in a prize pool for one currency is literally like saying (we're temporarily going to how things used to be for this coin and making it into a competition to get more people betting with that currency). I think the site started by offering a zero percent house edge too but I might be wrong there...

I'm pretty sure the house has always had a 1% house edge, and I'm almost certain there was never a 0% house edge.

Agreed, 25% is not too much. 25% of such a small house edge is tiny to begin with. It just feels like a lot, but it should be compared with the actual returns.

That's not true at all. The house is designed will win in the long run, but with low house edges and large max bets the house can definitely have a chance of losing money.

I've finished my DiceBet Verifier, use it to verify that your bets have been calculated honestly.

So you guys know, you have an error in your verification script. You have typed
const hash = crypto.createHmac('sha512', n + ':' + ss + ':' + n).update(n +':' + cs + 'n')
when you meant to type
const hash = crypto.createHmac('sha512', n + ':' + ss + ':' + n).update(n +':' + cs + ':' + n)

Making this change allowed the script to work for me.

I've started talking to the owner of this site to see if they're open to me making a verifier for their site. To do this I would need to go through and analyze their provable fairness system, then write a web verifier so that others can verify their bets through an open-source website. I think it's important that people verify their bets to keep sites held accountable. I'll post updates in this thread.

Sometime in the near future Chrome Apps are being discontinued, the platform that the old ledger apps were based off of. They developed a new native desktop application called ledger live. IMO it's much cleaner, reliable and easier to use. The chrome apps will continue to work as long as they exist, but they won't exist forever. Ledger live is also a new program you'll have to download and install, not a chrome app.

I hear that people are still using my verifier to link bet verification information here. Are there any improvements that would benefit you guys that I could make?
13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: When Schnorr will be added? on: September 22, 2018, 01:26:44 AM
Thanks theymos and achow for clearing things up. I wasn't aware that it could be added through a change in the witness version.
14  Economy / Gambling / Re: 🔶 YOLOdice.com 🔶 FAST, fair, BTC, LTC, ETH on: September 22, 2018, 01:18:29 AM
Ethan, just wanted to check in and make sure you're not affected by the Bitcoin Core bug, and that you've upgraded or don't use Bitcoin Core
15  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: When Schnorr will be added? on: September 20, 2018, 12:15:45 AM
What DooMAD said, Schnorr is at least as big of a change as SegWit, and we all know how easy and smooth of an upgrade that was...

Read theymos and achow101's replies
16  Bitcoin / Alternative clients / Re: When will Ledger Nano S support new coins? on: September 20, 2018, 12:12:56 AM
Note that ledger is supporting coins for free.

It is up to any individual to create an application for their desired coin to be supported by the nano s. The coins are no longer explicitly chosen by ledger.

If you are looking for a specific coin to be supported, simply create the application yourself (or pay someone to do this) and submit it to ledger.
All they are going to do is to review your application and (given that it is working as intended without any bugs) add it to the nano s 'app store'.
I mean, they're not doing it for free if they sell you the devices. The apps are only useful to people that own the devices.
17  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Total Number of full nodes operating. Less than 10k. on: September 07, 2018, 08:12:23 PM
Why can we not have services where people make donations to a global company with enough resources to host these full nodes for them. <Not virtual servers in the cloud>, like we have with Cloud mining.

I know there are big Bitcoin supporters out there, that might be living in areas where there is weak internet infrastructure or they might lack the technical knowledge to run these full nodes, but they will gladly donate some money to further the cause.

Is there currently services like this?

The point of running a full node is nullified if you aren't the one running it. Unless the machine running the node is under your control, you have to trust a third party. Running a full node is all about getting rid of trust.
18  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Mining reward "stealing" attack on: September 05, 2018, 04:00:48 AM
At this point when you have half the hashrate of the current network you might as well launch a 51% attack and go for everything, not just the untouched coins. It's equally as covert and you'd get more money. Which to be fair, is not covert at all.
19  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Is there any Blockchain/Wallet not requiring C++ Skills? on: September 04, 2018, 08:00:09 PM
Most coins are currently written in a systems-level language such as C or C++. However, all of the rules and protocols that govern how a coin actually exists can usually be implemented in many languages. C++ is usually chosen for performance and safety compared to higher level languages.
20  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: JavaScript library for cryptocurrency address validation on: September 04, 2018, 02:33:58 PM
How many currencies are we talking about? If it's not that many, you could probably just write your own library. The checksum or equivalent for most cryptos is not that complicated.
