libbitcoin is the first full reimplementation of the Bitcoin standard. It was started May 2011 by me and Patrick Strateman.

BitsOfProof and btcd are new entries into the space in the last few months, but there was nothing before.

This wallet is the first wallet (software you can use to do Bitcoin stuff, manages your keys in a wallet, creates transactions and has an interface) based off a full reimplementation. Other wallets either depended on bitcoind or were partial nodes.

meanig gives a good explanation. The situation is deep, and the land is ours. It's been stolen by rulers and corruption. And then people work for a corrupt system that abuses, controls and limits them paying rent every month for a small box. But OK, if they want us to play this stupid economic game, we will just build our own markets, out-compete them and buy back the planet.

Empty property is everywhere in London. We occupied empty houses of the queen in January, and the police response was massive but we did a 9 hour resistance on the roof. The police would never react that way if your private property is occupied. The big response is for her majesty.

In the G8, they sent 1000 police to arrest everybody protesting. I find it ironic that the G8 magazine had an article called "Protecting Digital Economies" talking about Bitcoin with such golden quotes like:

"alternative payment mechanisms, such
as Bitcoin and a host of others, can enable
criminal and terrorist groups to launder
money and fund their operations."

"Governments of the world have the ability
right now to ban these payment mechanisms."

"If treasuries and financial institutions
around the world were to block those
transactions and permit only legitimate
currencies to be used on the internet through
regulated payment service providers and
cards (such as Visa, MasterCard and American
Express), then the flow of many billions of
dollars to criminal groups would be stemmed."

"bring about a more safe and secure
internet environment for all citizens.
If the leaders of the European Union and
United States could be convinced to take a
lead on these initiatives, that would be a huge
contribution to making the internet a safe
place for financial transactions. At the same
time, it would also strike a blow against those
who would try to destroy the fabric of our the
world’s well-being."

I love the last sentence. Quick, the sleepwalking zombies are waking up!

cool so when are you going to give the coins back to the people you stole from either intentionally or through criminal negligence?

Please stop this nonsense. I have given my heart and soul to Bitcoin for 3 years, opensource for 10+ years and profited nothing. I have 4 BTC and no other money. I have received no money from any of these rich & popular Bitcoin people. I am supported by good people who have not much themselves and don't really understand Bitcoin, but believe in me and what I value.

But I love Bitcoin, and am here forever. I promised myself this in summer 2010, and nothing has changed.

Hi Trace,

1. Should copyright exist?

2. How better can we allocate money/resources in the Bitcoin space?

3. Why do you support a central foundation?

4. Is Bitcoin guaranteed to happen (like internet or printing press)?

5. What do you think of Cody Wilson?

We're just working on a tool to convert the bitcoind bootstrap.dat into a libbitcoin blockchain which would make the transition easier.

For now I would look at the config in /etc/obelisk/. You want the port of the frontend in balancer.cfg for your sx.cfg

Commands to run:

# Initialize blockchain
$ mkdir blockchain
$ sx initchain blockchain/
# Run the load balancer
$ obbalancer
# Run a worker
$ obworker

You can view debug.log and error.log to see the output of the worker.

It's important that everyone setup an Obelisk server though. I will make a proper release though soon, and then it will include instructions and I'll be ready for everyone to run versions. Soon soon.

Amir, I have paid for two tickets to Unsystem conference in Vienna and received 0 feedback from you on what's happening about it. It would have been nice to receive a personal response from you, or all your work will be marked as highly suspicious in my eyes. Refund, for one thing, is welcome.

This is the only email I have from you:


I cannot find where to purchase tickets. Are they sold out?

There was a link in March:

But now it does not point to a ticket sale.

Is conference cancelled or what?

My email:

Please don't do any more media appearances - this kind of work is better. - we appreciate this kind of work. Thank you Amir.

I am a squatter and anarchist. I'm not your yuppie making toy apps. I build tools for the people. If I don't conform to your vision of how Bitcoin should look like, then that's your problem.

This is the first time we have a completely independent and full Bitcoin software stack.

Before we had clients like Electrum using bitcoind as a backend, or MultiBit which do full block validation (they assume a transaction is trusted once it gets deep in the blockchain).

It doesn't look much yet. Still terminal based, but adding the GUI is easy. And it's an experimental prototype.

It's the pre-alpha proof of concept.

To protect the integrity of the network with no single point of failure, it's vital to diversify the software development process.

A standard controlled & set by a single party is disastrous for a neutral Bitcoin.

Github is spitting a 404 at

sx now supports embedding files in the blockchain.

$ echo foo | sx embed-addr
$ 1N9v8AKBqst9MNceV3gLmFKsgkKv1bZcBU

send some bitcoin to that address, and it will be a record in the blockchain of some data.

But I recommend to use the install script instead. You can even specify a local path and you don't need to be root. It will build the dependencies needed and stuff.

Location changed because I changed my mind. I couldn't in my right mind justify such a wasteful expenditure unless it's bringing something valuable to the people. Instead I want to invest it locally and build something subtle and powerful with soul.
418  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: UnSystem Conference (Vienna) on: August 29, 2013, 09:34:23 PM
I want to do something far better. There's loads of conferences about Bitcoin now so I think it's better to do an event that contributes something new to the discussion rather than the same as what's happening in New York, Atlanta, San Jose, Argentina, Amsterdam, France, Germany and London 3 times. More info after September. Location will probably be Barcelona or Italy.

For one thing, the code has rather frightening constructs such as:

call("sx rawscript [ %s ] [ %s ] | sx set-input txfile.tx %s > signed-tx" % (signature, pubkey, input_index))

I would not in the least bit be surprised if there is either a shell exploit already present, or there will be one in the future. In addition there is no license for the code, and it depends on sx/libbitcoin with are AGPL licensed.

About calling external functionality through the shell, we're very aware this is a very dangerous practice, and are working towards more direct access to the libbitcoin functionality for all languages ( or new electrum like protocols implemented for all languages and easy to use) so these dangers won't exist. Just for the proof of concept this is the way that works now for us to keep testing and developing. We welcome all security auditing and will refactor the code to make security more explicit.

Please keep analizing the code and providing feedback, its really appreciated!.
