For Qt wallets I think QT Creator would be nice choice for an IDE.

As pointed out by HeReTik, there are no balances. The nodes verify that the signed input
is unspent and corresponds to the private key that controls the amount sent.

Also, the steps outlined in 6 come logically before 5, since the set of transactions included
in the candidate block determine the Merkle root in the header, which again is hashed with the
rest of the block header in the process of mining.

The implementation of transaction states (UTXO) and Bitcoin Script, to
name just two aspects of the total system, indicate a remarkable mind at
work. If it originated from just one person, I would have no reservation using
the word genius.

Also, some more mundane programming constructs like the serialization
routines tell me that the author was well-versed in software design.

I think that the slightly odd choices in the presentation of the original source code
- the fact that it is a Visual Studio project, and the unfinished foundations
of a p2p market - are there because the author(s) wanted it to be easily
adopted by developers while also hinting at the possibilities.

Any guide for POS coin?

I've written a guide on who to make altcoin
based on Peercoin, but it is based on earlier version.

However it should give solid guidelines on how to
work with newer version, if you have a basic understanding
of coding.

You said you have C# skills so you might want to check out x42 coin. It's a new coin that seems to be made in .NET core technology using C#. The GUI wallet is made with Electron and Angular.


Also check out NBitcoin library that it is based on
https://github.com/MetacoSA/NBitcoin

There you will also find a link to the C# blockchain book
I mentioned above.
8  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Is there any Blockchain/Wallet not requiring C++ Skills? on: August 22, 2018, 01:23:06 PM

Do you want to develop a new coin (that is,  start a blockchain) or
are you interested in developing wallet software? The two are not identical and
can be implemented separately using different languages.

If a wallet (a private key management system) is your chief interest,
I recommend reading Nicolas Dorier's "C# Blockchain Programming" - google it.

Most of the standard blockchain software is done with C++, but you might
want to take a look at "alternative clients" subforum here.  There are
full nodes written with Go, JS, Rust, whatever, and starting a new blockchain
would mean forking one of them and altering the relevant parameters.

I would like to clear the air on the foundations purpose. And that is the lack of transparency.
So I will be forthright, this website was set up for the purpose of the foundation, which will be
explained later in detail, but I want to stress that it will not be a foundation that receives
any "donations" as is typical of a charitable foundation. I want to make that very clear.
Rather, it is a private foundation, with the funding coming directly from one source, myself.

I also would like to mention that the website was registered anonymously, and through a proxy.
Yes there are other ways to do it with traditional providers. The security to both the email
and domain are tight enough to negate the need or use of PGP. The old key was never actually
used to sign any release of the old software or old emails as coming from me.

I see no obligation in needing it.

I would stress that the cryptographic experts of which I count to be less than ten in the world,
one of you had the advantage of sitting down with me and even brought with you some of my old writings.
You also wrote a story and introduction. I would advise you to keep discretion. But some of your
colleagues seem to be misinformed and perhaps there should be some clarification in private.

You know who you are.

It will be very embarassing to those experts that come from academia to risk their reputation simply
on word.

Although this is a self published effort (in other words, no help whatsoever), I did not want
to betray myself in going any other route. Which is why the paper does not read as professionally
as those store shelf books you have read. The excerpts are completely my own voice, with no editors.
I do not feel the need to put on a show. It is what it is.

This is the basis for why the pdf is in word format and not latex, as this is a story, first and foremost,
and not an academic paper. Although both speak to the same subject matter, both have very different goals.

My only focus at this time is to work on the book which is strictly about my life and has nothing
to do with a small fraction of time that I have since moved on from. That is what the excerpts, which
have been made publicly available are for. Those of who you who enjoyed the excerpt, I am grateful.
Which is why I had considered writing a second excerpt to close that final chapter of my life.

I should state that most of the conversations are already out in the public domain, save for the aspects
that I covered, details of which only I am aware of. This is the basis for which I felt the freedom to talk
about them is because they were already in the public domain, but I cannot stress the fact that there are
countless conversations that have not been made public. I am not in a position to share what are to be
considered private conversations, unless those mentioned choose to make them public.

But I do want to state that I have no objection to any conversation I had being made public. Out of respect I
only discussed that of which is already in the public domain, as I understand that many do not want their
names to be mentioned, for privacy and safety reasons. And that is something I can understand fully,
is the respect for privacy.

I didn't have to do this, I could have just as easily released the book, but I felt the need to explain
the thought process that went behind my writings. And also reveal truths that were unknown.
No one knows the history of what came before better than us. And by us, I do mean us.
Those of us that were involved. Contrary to what is being egregiously written, this was not
a one man effort. I thought I had made that very clear in the excerpt,
but I will state it here officially then.

I wasn't the only one. And the trail marks I left behind in oversight, make that very clear.
As the saying goes, the code will speak for itself. I don't want to put it out there just now. I want to see
who will come forth to challenge that. If any expert wants to challenge that, then I hope you're willing
to put your name and reputation on that too when the book comes out.

The very short beginning to the second excerpt is here: http://nakamotofamilyfoundation.org/predraft.pdf


I am not writing this in response to what is being publicly written, neither positively nor negatively,
but rather as a response to the intentions of the foundation, and to clear the air on the purpose of
the foundation, which will explained later and which will migrate to a shorter domain in the near future.

This is all I will publicly state until the eventual release of the book.

Title of Chapter omitted
...If you've noticed by now, I have only mentioned the genesis once. In the beginning of the first excerpt.
And if you recall, I highlighted the word first. That is because it was not the first. Rather, there was
another genesis. From the first version.
A pregenesis of sorts, if you will.
You can imagine the anxiety in what would be the moment I had been waiting for, to see it working, like
the switch to a lift off, or starting up a Hachiroku, and the roar coming on for the first time.
And there it was.
(-------------------------------------------------Omitted section of the book--------------------------------------------------)
What followed, was profound relief.
The story of the genesis is one that deserves its own book. But the genesis will end where it begins.
(This is only the beginning to the second excerpt, which has yet to be finished and would be released at
some point in time, if at all. The rest will be omitted until then, if it ever comes.)

The author has a penchant from mystery which reminds me of Craig.

I must say that I enjoyed the pdf tremendously, and will for sure keep
following the "Family foundation" site.

Whoever the author of this is, he or she has really dug deep in Satoshi's
writings, and does a good job in the portrayal/spoofing.

And ... well, who know, maybe this is the real thing? At least it's a very
fun exercise..

Well, if you want to learn this stuff, you need to know some C++ and then
it won't be that hard to figure out. Especially since there are lots of threads like
this on bitcointalk, just search.
 
If you just want to launch your own cryptocurrency, these days you can do that
very easily on Ethereum or some other smart contract platform.

It's one implementation of the general genesis mining algo, taken from older source.. You need
to tweak it a little, but I prefer to leave that as an easy exercise.

Code:
if (false  && (block.GetHash() != hashGenesisBlock))
        {
           printf("Mining genesis\n");
           uint256 hashTarget = CBigNum().SetCompact(block.nBits).getuint256();
           while (block.GetHash() > hashTarget)
           {
               ++block.nNonce;
               if (block.nNonce == 0)
               {
                   printf("NONCE WRAPPED, incrementing time");
                   ++block.nTime;
               }
       if (block.nNonce % 10000 == 0) {
   printf("nonce %08u: hash = %s \n", block.nNonce, block.GetHash().ToString().c_str());
       }
           }
}

It's crazy how centralized Bitcoin actually is already.

Well it is dominated by power bases, each with a different degrees of centralization/decentralization.
Devs, Miners, FullNodes - although you might think of other names.

Is that a centralization? Then I think every crypto, despite the ideological claptrap
is centralized to a degree, must be, and we might as well be thinking in terms of different
levels of centralization/decentralization that might very well be caused by some immutable
constraints.

Oh you're ianshop? You're in, of course.

However this week I learned about very similar idea as mine,
using even some of the components I was thinking of employing (A-Frame),
only that it is built on Ethereum.

https://decentraland.org/

I need to study this more before decxiding what to do.

The thing about MIL is that it is pretty old by now. The escrow
functionality that it implemented can be done more safely and efficiently
with scripting in the more modern versions of Bitcoin. The reason
that it has not (to my knowledge) been done is because of the
vulnerability in the off-chain negotiation process - something that
also always worried me with MIL

Big blocks
Holders want it more than users.
Big blocks lower mining fees while making running node more expensive. Holders rarely run a node.


It's the other way round.

Holders are ok with small blocks because of the "anti-censorship" that comes with
the ability to run a full node with limited resources, which is made possible by
the smaller amount of transactions in smaller blocks.

Users - i.e. people who would like to actually buy things with bitcoin - would benefit
from bigger blocks, smaller transaction fees and faster processing of orders.

No, since I don't want to subsidy inactive holders of Millionairecoin, just
the people who contributed by giving feedback in the threads.

Hello YarkoL!

Any news about the new coin you are working on? What's it's name? Could you link us to a thread if there is one?


No thread, just a github repository for now, under another name.

At its most basic the idea is to build a virtual reality that runs on blockchain.
You can buy, sell and develop properties. It will be very accessible and low-end,
and you need just a modern web browser and a smartphone with a decent resolution.

I hope to get into this full-time so my schedule is to have something ready by
next spring.

I'll have some sort of special offer for everyone who has contributed to this thread
from the beginning until NOW as a compensation for the MIL you have invested in.

Similar to the situation with monero.

Not sure if you mean that Monero is afflicted by this
culture of greed, or is trying to get above it.

I know for a fact that a certain Monero dev who used
to bash "shitcoins" took part in altcoin pumps
and dumps at the same time, and I suspect he wasn't the only one.
