Cxi tio estas la unua laso de obelisk (eskalebla demand-konstruo por la blokcxeno) kaj sx (potencigu la Bitmono-administro) al la mondo.

La sekva laso de libbitcoin fokusigxos plue al rapideco kaj eskalebleco. Ni konstruas rapida malpeza databuso kun multaj interesaj kvalitoj fokusigas cxirkaux la blokcxeno. Pli da informo venos!

Ni kreos nova projekto de unSYSTEM-grupo kiel "crowd-funded" projekto. Mi penas ke ni havas bonegan proponon por la komuno, kaj ni uzos la libbitcoin/obelisk malantauxet-servilo.

Mi kreis sx wallet (sx monujo), kaj nun ni kreos alian monujon tiel koncepte kiel enhavos multaj da trajtoj de priveco kaj idento. Cxi tiu estos pasxilo por mi kaj mia grupo en esplori la monujejo.

Gxis la revido verduloj!

DPR is a visionary and trend setter. His frugal existence show his motives as an ideologue. You can't imprison an idea. Long live the Silk Road.

Yes, but it's different if you just want the money to buy a yacht vs if you want the money to pay off some drug lord to protect your wife and kids from harm. 8000 random lives imprisoned or keeping your family alive.

But it's not so morally easy since the guy had kids, and drug debts. But he was blackmailing with the threat of many people's lives at stake.

I'm curious: why do you think it is relevant he has children and drug debts?

We all make stupid mistakes (drug debts), and do bad things not motivated by greed (motivated by loved ones).

It's easy saying what you would've done if you were in his position after the fact.

What are you actually doing?

Hero's hire people to kill people?


The guy was threatening to release the info for 8000 people. Those people would have had their lives ruined by LE. If I was at risk of 10+ years in jail for a victimless crime because of the deliberate actions of an asshole motivated by money, then I would not mind someone assassinating that person.

But it's not so morally easy since the guy had kids, and drug debts. But he was blackmailing with the threat of many people's lives at stake.

Trying to build on windows/MinGW for Zeroreserve (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=295930)

Installed MinGW with gcc 4.8.1

What I got so far:

Code:
mingw-get install autoconf
mingw-get install automake
mingw-get install libtool
in configure.ac: AM_PROG_AR  --> AC_CHECK_TOOL([AR], [ar], [false])     [no idea what I am doing here but seems to work]
---> "autoreconf -i" works ok

Now I am stuck with "./configure --enable-leveldb" --> "could not detect boost libraries"
I have boost installed and can compile Bitcoin but I can not convince libbitcoin configure...   any ideas?

Has anybody ever compiled libbitcoin on windows?

Tried $BOOST_ROOT, --with-boost, --with-bost-libdir and various combinations, e.g.:
./configure --enable-leveldb --with-boost=./libs/boost_1_54_0 --with-boost-libdir=./libs/boost_1_54_0/stage/lib
./configure --enable-leveldb --with-boost=./libs/boost_1_54_0 --with-boost-libdir=./libs/boost_1_54_0/stage
./configure --enable-leveldb --with-boost=./libs/boost_1_54_0 --with-boost-libdir=./libs/boost_1_54_0

What parts of boost should I compile? (chrono, filesystem, program-options, system, thread is what I got now; static linking)

Using boost 1.54.0

I'll message you via email and we'll sort this out.

391  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Re: sx wallet (command line wallet) [EXPERIMENTAL] on: September 26, 2013, 10:17:54 PM
It uses libbitcoin with a blockchain query infrastructure called Obelisk:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=30646.0

https://github.com/spesmilo/obelisk/

The cc- commands are encryption commands in all common Linux repos (apt-get install ccencrypt).
On Arch Linux, these are installed like so:
Code:
pacman -S ccrypt

I get an issue where it displays the following error at the top of the screen, and does nothing when I type help:

Code:
ERROR WITH BROADCASTING SUBSYSTEM!!

Not sure if it is related, but there's another problem happening where obelisk-obworker exits when I run it after starting obelisk-obbalancer:

Code:
DEBUG [worker]: Connecting: tcp://localhost:9092
INFO [worker]: worker ready
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::interprocess::interprocess_exception'
  what():  No such file or directory
Aborted (core dumped)

At this point, obelisk-obbalancer crashes as well with this error:

Code:
obelisk-obbalancer: balancer/balancer.cpp:130: std::string encode_uuid(const data_chunk&): Assertion `data.size() == 17' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

Obelisk doesn't seem very well documented at the moment. Does this client depend on Obelisk in some way?

Note: I used makepkg to install libbitcoin-leveldb-git, obelisk-git, and sx-git from AUR.

yep it uses obelisk. more info: http://libbitcoin.dyne.org/obelisk/

obelisk (and sx) aren't released yet.

I believe your error is because the worker you start for the server hasn't got a blockchain database setup. The other crash is because I was making changes today but it should be fixed now.

I had a server for people to use, but it got copyright takedowns so now we're searching for a new one.
392  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / PoS system in a few easy steps - no phone required on: September 20, 2013, 01:11:46 AM
People keep asking about a PoS system. All the proposals involve the users having expensive mobile phones or some kind of specialised electronic equipment. This does not help normal people, people without phones or the developing world.

I hacked this up for a bar inside a social centre in Milan ( http://www.macao.mi.it/ ):

https://github.com/genjix/macao

Explanation:

User has 2 QR codes. Imagine having 2 credit cards with a QR code on them and a swivel hinge on them. The QR code on the top card is your public unencrypted receiving address. Your rotate the card, and the one inside is your private encrypted sending wallet seed (used to create your private key).

The bar then has a terminal with the software running (check the subdir called 'wallet'). You scan your private QR code, enter your password and are presented with a menu:

Amount: [_____________0.00_]
* Pay to bar
* Pay to QR code
* Enter Bitcoin address

You can type how much you want to send, then click pay to bar. Or you can scan someone else's public QR code.

This is inexpensive and easy way to get people into Bitcoin without requiring any technology on their part. You can issue accounts for people and print them out then and there on the spot. People can send to other people, and mobile phones can send to their public QR code. To make payments, they use the terminal. Or they can go home / on a phone and enter the seed there and continue using the wallet.

Simple PoS system, inexpensive, easy, low-cost, ...

Spread the knowledge around. Hopefully someone can take this idea and make it into a cool project that lots of people will use.
393  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Re: libbitcoin on: September 18, 2013, 11:09:53 AM
libbitcoin now has a blockchain reorg testing tool!

https://github.com/spesmilo/libbitcoin/tree/master/test/fakechain

Run the bash script run.sh

You can customise the test by editing step.hpp

You can test anything by customising step.hpp. The default test now tries to create 3 chains, handle reorganisations, double spending, spending transactions from alternate branches and duplicate transactions.

$ cd libbitcoin/tests/fakechain/
$ ./run.sh
$ ../../examples/display-last

It works by mining the blocks from the genesis block. It submits a chain of 100 blocks then does the reorg test on top. This is because you cannot spend coinbase transactions that are less than COINBASE_MATURITY (100 blocks).

So whilst it's great to see libbitcoin develop like this, what Amir is saying is not correct about it being the first or only such reimplementation.

You know that's not true. libbitcoin was a full implementation since 2011. You were also claiming in another topic that I'm not a Bitcoin developer.
399  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: sx command line utilities - Empower The Sysadmin With Bitcoin Tools on: September 14, 2013, 08:18:56 PM
Forgive the newbie question, but how do I actually configure SX so it has a blockchain database to query?

I just want to run the command `sx balance 1...` but this simply hangs with no output.

I am guessing this is because it has no idea about how to get the information, i.e. it has no blockchain database.

So please how do I configure this? Does it depend on bitcoin-qt/bitcoind ?

cheers!


Edit: I have tried an `sx initchain path-to-bitcoin-qt-blockchain` to no avail. this also just hangs with no response


Hey,

My email is amir@unsystem.net if you ever want to reach me directly with questions.

I've been making changes recently, so my server might sometimes experience downtime. Obelisk and SX aren't released yet but a release will be happening soon. Then we will create a stable production server, and keep a separate one for development.

If you want to create your own:

$ mkdir blockchain
$ sx initchain blockchain/
INFO: Imported genesis block 000000000019d6689c085ae165831e934ff763ae46a2a6c172b3f1b60a8ce26f

You now have a blockchain with the genesis block.

If you start the worker, it will begin downloading the blockchain. The rsync tool is obselete. We're working on a tool to bootstrap the Bitcoin blockchain but it is experimental:

https://github.com/spesmilo/libbitcoin/tree/master/tools

So you'll be able to use rtorrent to download it from bittorrent, then import it into libbitcoin (Obelisk).

The blockchain path is in /etc/obelisk/worker.cfg

That compile error is with ZeroMQ, and should be fixed by them. Since the problem doesn't occur in Debian Wheezy or Ubuntu 13.04, it's probably fixed.

Thanks!

Can this client build Block templates and accept/propagate block solutions on the network? Does it have a name yet? (I thought sx was the name of your toolset?)

This is a wallet. libbitcoin is the client and can do any Bitcoin thing you want really because it has a powerful API: http://libbitcoin.dyne.org
