1  Other / Archival / Re: ledger nano x - not recognized by Electrum on Windows on: December 01, 2019, 01:14:18 AM
I used to have the same problem with Electrum and my KeepKey wallet.  I fixed it by downloading the python tools for Keepkey.

There are Ledger official python tools available also, have you tried to install them from the command prompt on Windows ?   

Open a CMD window by searching for CMD on the search bar, then, at the command line, type:

Code:
pip install ledgerblue

I was also intrigued by this posting.  I'm on a Mac, and I connected one of my Keepkey (updated to Bootloader 1.1.0 and FW 6.2.2) to Electrum 3.3.8 - same results, Electrum could not find it.

I have a backup KeepKey that is not updated. It is still at Bootloader 1.0.3 and FW 4.0.0.  When I connected it with Electrum 3.3.8 - it WORKED!  Electrum recognized it. Hummm....  Strange.   I decided to update the Bootloader and FW on that backup KeepKey - after the update, it stopped being recognized by Electrum.  Logically, there is a software issue here - but is it Electrum or more particularly the KeepKey plugin used by Electrum?   Most likely the plugin, I figured.

So I executed the following command in a terminal window:  

  
Code:
pip install keepkey
which fetched the latest plugin software from KeepKey servers.

Started Electrum again - and magically both my Keepkeys were recognized by Electrum 3.3.8!   Cool

Most likely the compiled package of Electrum on Mac is not using the latest version of the Keepkey plugin.

Good catch Belisarius!  We need more observant people in this field.  

I learned something today, due to your post (and the help of kiuupichan on Github): namely that Electrum servers check for P2PKH transactions but not (currently) for older P2PK transactions, which were more common in the early days of bitcoin.

There was a project in 2014-2015 named Encompass (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1067166.0) which was based on Electrum codebase, and that could handle 5 different coins at the same time (BTC, LTC, DASH, MZC and VIA)  all with the same mnemonic!  Something similar as hardware wallets do.  More coins could be added by a simple addition of a file and repackaging everything - instructions were provided).  It worked pretty well.  It used the same servers as the stand alone Electrum clones for each coins.  

The project was abandoned in 2015 due to lack of interest from the community - but the code is still available on Github:  https://github.com/mazaclub/encompass

Been running the World Community Grid app for like a week now and no Byteball payments, anyone got the same issue?

Previously I was receiving payments once a day.
WCG had 25 months to prepare for the EU GDPR and waited at the last moment to write their legal documents. While they lawyers are writting.... the API used by Tony to provide the daily reward, is closed.
Quote
Hello Tony,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.  As you've noticed, access to the APIs is now restricted to people who obtain a token. To get the token, you must first sign our Data Processing Agreement to ensure that you're willing to comply with certain requirements about how the API data must be processed. We are still finalizing the text of this Agreement and will email you as soon as it's ready.  We have just implemented the release which allows members to access their own API stats: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewpostinthread?post=582183

Please note that volunteers now have the option of making their data private, which would exclude it from the API export files and by default, all new volunteers' data will be private. You may want to hold on to the latest export files you have, and once you gain access through the token, you can compare the data to figure out the currency distribution retroactively.

Thanks for your patience as we continue to work aggressively to ensure compliance with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation and the protection of our volunteers' data.

Thank you for your support,

World Community Grid Support Team

I got one question. Since there is no mining, how can someone earn tokens easily?
Which Free distribution method listed in the OP are you not finding easy to implement?

hello someone can tell me what is byteball in short words?


Byteball is a decentralized system that allows tamper proof storage of arbitrary data,
including data that represents transferrable value such as currencies, property titles, debt,
shares, etc.

"decentralized" Cheesy

The exactly same feeling makes me the same smile Cheesy .
The way of Byteball distribution and operation  is far away from "decentralized", while the supporters are advocating the features.
I don't think the wise whales will kick in before it comes to be decentralized.

What is decentralized for you?
Can you give an example of decentralized distribution and operation?

What BYTEBALL should do right now to be more "decentralized" and win your sympathy?


There literally one guy holding 30-40% of all coins that will ever exist, who also happens to operate all twelve if the consensus forming and transaction validating nodes that collect all of the network fees. It almost couldn't be more centralized, so practically anything that's changed would increase decentralization.

Final countdown on the latest 1GB WCG Challenge.  To earn a share of the giveaway, you have to be computing for WCG and be an active member of the WCG official team (Byteball. org) - i.e.: submit any WCG results for each of the final days of the Challenge (Thursday, Friday and Saturday).  

In other words, your WCG username has to appear on the daily payout list (http://wcg.report) AND the WCG Team page (Click Here) for the next three days.   The Challenge officially closes on Saturday 23:59:59 UTC.

hi every one,
is there any one told me how to set WCG (world community grid) only use gpu?
I have 3 1080ti gpu on one computor.
World Community Grid does not support GPU computing, only CPU.  If you are interested in similar projects as WCG for your GPUs, there are a few projects that does support them:  http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php  

However, if you end goal is to only collect Byteball rewards, you have to use CPU only.

A Slack user is trying to promote the new Byteball WorldCommunityGrid.org (WCG) distribution method (new WCG Bot in the BB wallet).  This morning, he already gave away shares of a 1GB reward to all Byteball users that were active participants in the program last week, and were part of the official WCG Byteball team (Byteball.org).   Those users each ended up with a 25MB reward (~ $6.60) - not bad.  

With the participation of Tonyh, he has announced on Slack today a follow-up giveaway: he is offering shares of another 1GB reward on May 19th.  To be eligible to receive a share of this reward, the participants have, again, to be active within the Byteball WCG distribution, AND be a member of the official Byteball WCG Team.  Apparently, only 40% of the Byteball WCG distribution users are also member of the official WCG Byteball Team.  To increase this ratio to more than 75% by May 19th, he is offering 1GB in reward.

To be part of this challenge, you first have to be an active member of the Byteball WCG Bot program (tutorial here: https://steemit.com/byteball/@punqtured/processing-for-good-get-rewarded-for-crunching-numbers-to-cure-diseases).

Second, you have to join, or switch to the official Byteball Team (to do so, one has to select "My Team --> Find a Team" in their WCG account, search, select and join the team Byteball.org).

Finally, on May 19th, the Team active members count has to be at least 75% of the number of participants receiving BB daily payouts (https://wcg.report).

It is also mentioned that to be considered an active team member, you have to contribute any amounts of WCG points to the team every day of the challenge period - either since newly joining the Byteball WCG Bot program, or, for current Byteball WCG Bot participants, since the participant switched/joined the official team.

I make also 25K pts per day on a laptop (i7-7700HQ)

Look at this post:
https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,40377_offset,70#560409
40K pts a day with a 4-cores
80K pts a day with a 8-cores

Show me some 2018 data please...

BTW:  your i7 CPU is worth about $300 - not the CPU that an honest user would like to put in jeopardy by stress testing it for a year....
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: May 03, 2018, 01:14:03 AM
So if we started the WCG project by using the WCG-distribution test bot, do we need to change to the WCG-distribution bot?
Yes. If you want to be rewarded with the new WCG Points (Honor coin) and the $1 per 150k points.

You have to re-link your Byteball wallet.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: May 03, 2018, 01:10:19 AM

The maths are wrong, I make a steady 15K points a day with an Atom CPU from 2013 (TDP 20W). A modern quad core should produce far more.

The system takes into account WCG points,  not BOINC points. 

I talk about WCG points not BOINC points that are way lower.
All the test I recently conducted, and the results from other users show that a good quad core produces about 15k points per day, and height cores about 25-30k points.

Show us your recent results if you can do better!

Can someone please explain how the WCG points system works in relation to byteball?
How many WCG points is equal to 1 GB of BB?

150 000 WCG points = $1 worth of Byteballs

At the current rate of $257 per GB, 1GB = 38 Millions WCG points.

If your PC quad core can generate 15 000 WCG points per day, it should take you 2500 days - or 7 years to produce 1GB  Tongue (assuming the price per GB remains the same)

This program is more like a faucet then anything else...

I just signed up and will buy bytes. The ios app wallet is not available in the app store, is that correct?

https://github.com/byteball/byteball/blob/master/building-for-ios.md

Building Byteball for iOS
Apple takes cautious approach to new cryptocurrencies and didn't approve our app for the App Store (yet). Fortunately, if you own a Mac, you can build and install Byteball for your iPhone yourself:

Download Xcode (4.5GB), if not already.
Sign up for Apple Developer Program (if not already), it's free.
Download Byteball Xcode project, it contains all the source code necessary to build.
Unzip and open Byteball.xcodeproj in Xcode.
Select a Team in the project properties.
Connect your iPhone to your Mac via USB.
Build Byteball by clicking Play button in Xcode.
Read more detailed instructions (for another app). It is one of the easiest ways to try open-source apps that are not on the App Store.

...except the fact that the xcodeproject file has not been made available on Github since 1.10... you canít really use that system to generate the latest iOS app for your iphone :/

Simply create a new wallet as single-address and move your Bytes there.
Hi,

I am not familiar with using Byteball windows wallet, so I have a question for you.
If I have different wallets in my windows wallet, all steps I need to do to backup my wallets (full backup, export it with paraphrases); then copy the backup files to different computers, then all wallets in my backup files will be recovered in the new computer.
Am I understand right?
Thanks.
Yep.

Backups will restore all your Byteballs AND tokens on the networks - like BlackBytes and ICO tokens.  

Seed will only restore your Byteballs.

However, don't operate two wallets with the same backup on two different computers at the same time.  Only one computer at a time should have your Byteball wallet.  If you transfer your wallet to another computer (with the backup) - stop using the previous wallet.
