Is there going to be another claim period?

The website doesn't say it will or will not.
Keep in mind that they haven't paid out the last two periods yet, although it is slowly being paid out.  Currently for bitcoin addresses that had less than .14
They are a month behind so far, and at this rate, it will take a long time.
122  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: February 19, 2018, 03:55:28 PM
You mean that you succeeded to move your claimed coins (at last)?

No,
I mean to say that I have move some of my claimed coins, but only some small amounts.
Also, I used the electrum fork.    I will send you proof directly.
123  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: February 19, 2018, 02:17:18 AM

According to what you describe they are distributing the coins at a kind of very low speed compared to how they took them, and starting by the lowest amounts, the explaination is probably simple: they don't want people to rush to sell them, so UBTC value does not drop shortly to zero

To protect people, thanks again

That's correct.

Here is the latest transaction of them paying.   It stopped again several hours ago.

https://www.ub.com/explorer/address?address=1MFeSME6H8eeJSPDTt3yq7DSrEr8FUAkkY

Just watch the high amount move to the next address along with the set of payments.

On the strange payment that happened days ago on 1BTC balances, I was able to move those via the electrum fork.
124  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: February 18, 2018, 05:19:41 PM
I just read about this fork.  Does anyone know the amount of premine? aka the "inactive" coins?

See above, there is no premine, they just transferred everything to themselves (except maybe phase 1 addresses) and might now refund the addresses that did fulfill phase 2 requirements

This is correct.
Just in case no one noticed, an important thing to remember is.... They have a GOD mode.   This means they can take your coins at will.  So, anytime you think you're safe, and no matter how secure your computer, wallet, etc might be, the coins can be taken.

As for the distribution... Phase 1 is done from what I can tell.  The coins that were 'unutilized' were taken.  Then phase 2 started and ended, but nothing was distributed.  Then Phase 2 'grace period' started and ended.  Now coins are being distributed, but very slowly and it's started from the lowest amount.  Strangely though, maybe addresses with exactly .5BTC and 1.0BTC were distributed first.   I've been following the distribution and all addresses up to .08BTC have been distributed. (note it's progressed passed this.)

Example:
This shows addresses with 1BTC getting paid.
https://www.ub.com/explorer/tx?txid=c67a2c3afa286c0160ea6bfcfeead542f8775f6f68fefb6f34aac4ba8734bf66

Random address from the TX:
https://blockchain.info/address/1LihQMsyne2J5n1RszYHabvPQ1pEv9jAZA -- Phase 2 movement
https://www.ub.com/explorer/address?address=1LihQMsyne2J5n1RszYHabvPQ1pEv9jAZA  -- Shows it was funded, god mode removed, then refunded.

Random address from the TX:
https://blockchain.info/address/1MbkzeRuPXddkmQdqd6P4Xp8KWhT4Dhbua -- Phase 2 movement
https://www.ub.com/explorer/address?address=1MbkzeRuPXddkmQdqd6P4Xp8KWhT4Dhbua  -- Shows it was funded, god mode removed, then refunded.

One that seems broken or I just don't understand is:
https://www.ub.com/explorer/address?address=1NFjTJV6ATXQxWZvehSBs9a5ED7x3HNzA2
https://blockchain.info/address/1NFjTJV6ATXQxWZvehSBs9a5ED7x3HNzA2
- The first two transactions in date order are the standard funding and god mode removed.  The next is the transaction refunding the address because the bitcoin was moved for phase 2.  Strangely, the UB explorer shows a 4th transaction; however, it doesn't have anything to do with the address.


We are adding our own candidate to join the other “Alt-Bitcoins” in the ongoing forking Diaspora. We call it Bitcoin United (BTC-U) aka (BTC.BTS). The purpose of Bitcoin United to provide a solution so far advanced that there would be no reason to adopt anything else – thus avoiding a permanent breakup. Bitcoin will remain united through the sheer force of excellence of our long-proven, freely available technology.

I love this post.

 When I tried to link my segwit (starts with 3) with the transition bot it replied with this:
"Only P2PKH addresses (those that start with 1) can sign messages."
it said i can verify with a microtransaction but i rather use signing messages and dont see why it wouldnt work.

It doesn't matter what you rather do.
Your option is to do what the bot says or not do it at all.

You can't sign with a SW address, so you can't do it.

That said, if you want to register by using the signing method, then move your coins to an address that can actually sign messages (legacy / addresses starting with a 1).
126  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: February 17, 2018, 12:22:46 PM

Why would you call me a lier? I said what I did, sold them and that was that. I don't care about their shitty coin, fork or who's behind it.

Thank for your post; however, it doesn't prove that
Hell, it doesn't even prove that you used it to move the UB coins.

Then please provide in clear the addresses and transactions involved (email/PM me if you prefer), you are the only known case up to now as far as I know to have succeeded claiming UBTCs

Took two minutes to find it....

This is no way proves the wallet jason1959 is claiming was used, let alone being legit.
I call bullshit on it at this point, because those coins were NOT claimed coins.  They can be tracked back to many transactions over time and honestly appear to be a part of a spam or mixer network on the bitcoin chain.

Would love to see screen shots/info on the excrypts.org wallet.

130  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: February 14, 2018, 07:44:26 PM
I just missed the grace period because I couldn't work out how to send from a specific address with a nano ledger. In the end I found you could use electrum but then I got my segwit and legacy addresses muddled up and couldn't send to verify and claim. I suppose its too late now? Can grace to extended in exceptional circumstances? A shame because it looks like this is a really good project.


It wouldn't matter anyway.

I doubt you would have seen any coins anyway.  Remember, they screwed everyone prior to the Phase 2 grace period distribution by not giving them the coins they should have received.  And, that was well over a month ago.  So, to think they would give out to those in 'grace period' seems like false hope anyway.
131  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: February 11, 2018, 07:02:15 PM
Michail1, you're right everything is perfect and nothing should be improved. I finally realized it after all of your whining about every suggestion and reality bending.

Let me jog your memory of when you said verification is a gamble.

Quote
Your response is akin to saying... Why shouldn't I be refunded by the casino if the ball lands on Red when I put my money on Black?   I mean, I intended to bet on Black, so it should be considered a win even though it was my mistake for physically putting it on Red.   Just like all the people investing on known Ponzi scams working out great until it fails and then complain that they lost their money and want it back.  LOL.  If someone invests in something and it makes money, they are happy.  If they invest and it goes down, it's everyone's fault but their own and they feel entitled to get everything back.

Well, you just proved you have nothing good or meaningful to say.

I never said everything was perfect or that nothing should be improved.  I wasn't whining about anything; that's what you're doing.  Continue with your reality bending.  With your lie right from the start, I stopped reading everything else you had to say.  Grow up.

 No back up unfortunately.

 Thank you in advance.

Did you not read the thread?
133  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: February 07, 2018, 08:57:01 PM

it's a stupid idea to take money from people regardless if they have successful verification or not we're dealing with a business here not a casino and i am sure there are laws out there to protect consumers like this, this people are sort of gangsters not people willing to do fair business.

What money was taken from you?


Thanks Michail, but I was referring to the ID verification for the referral system, as mentioned in this thread:

https://www.reddit.com/r/ByteBall/comments/7rtixn/byteball_id_verification_program_tutorial/

I don't remember all details of this initiative, this is why my post was not so precise, but I remember that when it was launched time ago I was at first VERY enthusiastic of it but then something in the technical process didn't work out properly and I've started to read of all the complains of people who were just losing their 8$ for the failed verification and I've postponed to deal with the issue until I forgot about it.

Thanks.
I agree with you.  I didn't realize there was such a big issue and that people are so willing to submit passports and drivers licenses.

Personally, I wouldn't sell my identification for $12.


134  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: February 07, 2018, 07:08:34 PM
After reading of all the failed ID verification and 8$ losses my enthusiasm of going through the process has cooled down - I'm not a clueless kid but I have already experienced this kind of processes fail for technical reasons independent from my will. It is sufficient that the camera of your PC has not with the necessary resolution or that there is not enough light in the room and the process will fail.
A good Market perception in this surreal crypto-space is alas fundamental, by the way. I am sharing the perception that this is a weak point to this day. There's space for improvement.

Trying to understand what you mean by ID verification.
Byteball doesn't require an ID.   No ID is requested.  No camera is needed.  So, picture quality is a mute point.

If you mean Transition bot (address linking (again, nothing to do with a camera)) then the process is simple.  NO ID is needed.  NO Camera.  NO Picture.

Quote simply to link your address to get a part of the distribution, you follow the bot questions.
You tell it your byteball address.   two clicks.
You can pay the address it says (small amount)    OR    tell it your address and sign the message  (NO fee)

It's that simple.

If someone is having a camera to convert the address to qr code and then scan, etc, then that's added steps someone is doing that isn't needed.
The problem in that case has nothing to do with byteball and simply the end user making the process far more complicated than needed.

If someone is paying an address and the bot shows a zero balance, then it's because they had a change address their coins went to.  This is a part of bitcoin, not byteball.  People need to learn how bitcoin works and maybe just read a little more on byteball about what might have happened as to why byteball transition shows a balance that isn't expected.  There is no way for byteball to know your wallet has the coins you own distributed throughout many addresses.
135  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: February 07, 2018, 06:56:37 PM
Haha. Verifying yourself is supposed to be a gamble (!!!?). Nice joke. I really like your gymnastics. User unfriendly - read this thread maybe? Users have failed verification because they didn't use a single address wallet. Why doesn't the verification handle the case when they don't have a single address wallet? Why is the current tps limited to 10 and why are there no plans to improve that? Why are so many unable to use a full wallet? No optimization plans? Why doesn't the project require Jumio to refund users when verification fails due to technical reasons or due to Jumio's inadequacy? Why has Tony completely ignored the community desire for a more professional/agreeable name? Why has Tony brushed off silvercatman's help with redesigning the website look?

I'm not asking for any handouts. I would much prefer the airdrops  and Jumio program cease because they are very ineffective at gaining users. Why doesn't Tony set aside some bytes for the development and marketing instead of foolishly giving away more bytes? Any plans for a secure web wallet? Tony thinks that new exchanges are not necessary as stated in recent interview (look on Reddit), so we are stuck with one low volume exchange that is open (cryptox).

Why don't I do all of those things myself you ask? I don't have the time or expertise and well Tony is in charge of the project. He's also the one sitting on over $100,000,000 worth of undistributed bytes.

Who said verification is a gamble?  Still making up things?

User unfriendy?  Sure, that's totally why byteball is doing well and has a thread with over 850 pages.
Users have NOT failed to verify because of single or multiple addresses.   Have you bothered to even look at transition bot to see this?  I have many wallets with single and multiple addresses.  Never a problem.  What is a problem you have with verification?   I would be interested in looking at example or two.

I see someone simply whining.  Just like my ex-wife (thank god).  If there is something to complain about, she will.  If there is nothing to complain about, she will still complain about it.

If you don't like it, then move on.  Stop making up problems to try to prove a point.

Really, your complaint now is the website as well?  Gawd.  Instead of complaining, why not make a suggestion?  'I suggest pretty colors on the site'?  lol

Let's back up some of your claims before you keep making stuff up.

Contradiction - Not looking for a handout, but asking for an airdrop.

'Tony sitting on the bytes for distribution.'   Oh gawd, so now you're complaining they weren't handed out fast enough?

'Why doesn't Tony set aside some bytes for the development and marketing ' - Do you check?  There are marketing efforts and I have donated to them.

Honestly, everyone has their own idea how something should be done.  If it doesn't match what they think, most will make suggestions.  Many, like yourself, simply complain about it.  Have you thought about starting your own project?  I mean, it's gotta be easy, right?

'Why has Tony completely ignored the community desire for a more professional/agreeable name?' - Another assumption on your part.  Did you consider that it might have been up for a pole/discussion and decided against?  Or, just something to bitch about?  Most coins that do that are a failing project in hope of getting a new name to revamp interest.  'Under New Management' and 'Rebraded' don't typically work.

'Why has Tony brushed off silvercatman's help with redesigning the website look?' - Did you ask him or want me to make up an answer.   Frankly, I don't know.  Why not ask him or silvercatman to find out instead of bitching about it in some random post that likely will not be read by the people that could give you a reasonable answer.

And finally, Tony did not say exchanges were not necessary.  He stated that exchanges are used by traders and that they are targetting regular people and that byteball needs to build payment gateways.
Just because he didn't fill your thought of what should be done, doesn't mean he said something that shouldn't be done.   Basically, it appears you simply read what the post said instead of listening to the audio of what he actually said.   And, even if he did say it wasn't necessary (he didn't), consider the language barrier as well.  

You're welcome to start your own project, but keep the facts clear.  I would like to look at your project when it comes out.  I would like to see something made that would fulfill all your issues/suggestions, but please remember, you also must make everyone happy that poses an issue that exists or not.


136  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: February 07, 2018, 05:43:31 PM

Why would you delete your appdata (wallet folder) just because of a one time error?  That's another mistake (second) in that even if the wallet has a problem, it can be fixed.  So, a backup (simply moving the folder) is preferred to deleting and then hoping to magically get the funds to reappear.

Why? Delete the appdata folder was to ensure that I can install the new version without old artifacts that could cause trouble and backup with the SEED.



For future thought...

Wallet and APP are two different things.
Installing a new wallet, uninstalling, reinstalling, installing on top have no affect on the wallet (data) itself.

The same goes for a corrupted wallet in that all of the above will not fix it.


The airdrop in march: will it be the last one? Or will more airdrops follow?

Don't know, but there is going to have to be more in order to distribute the promised number of bytes to the public.  I would like to know how those distributions will take place myself.

Question regarding the Airdrop:
I've moved my BTC to a segwit address (starting with 3..). The chatbot gives me the following response:
Quote
Only P2PKH addresses (those that start with 1) can sign messages. You can prove ownership of xyz only by microtransaction.
My question is: How can I make such a transaction? What is the address that I've to send to?
Has anyone successfully registered a segwit address with a micro transaction and can give me some guidance? I've checked the Byteball Wiki but couldn't find the answer there.


You will not be able to sign with segwit.
So, only chance (for you to test yourself), is to setup a segwit transaction and see it if will work in the transition bot.

segwit and multisig start with a 3
You can see that 1 or both formats are accepted with the transision bot.
http://transition.byteball.org/
The latest address that paid was:
3Q6j4BU9kmuuK2sMjKjg9vcg9x5kYLQgAf
Paid a TX and coins moved to what appears another segwit address.

Another example is:
3GQVpXeMa4njR3oqdHDPLrriBLfyCttoih
They paid the fee and the change went to another segwit change address and then the change was moved back to the original address in order to claim bytes based on the full number of bitcoins.


137  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: February 07, 2018, 05:38:17 PM
The question for Byteball is: should we try and make this process kid-proof? My opinion is that we should not. Working with contracts is something for adults. Of course the process should be as easy as possible and the explanation of the terms and conditions should be clear, but totally kid-proofing it seems near impossible and not necessary.


There is no way to block 'kids' from investing or even trying to claim free tokens.  'Kids' can also be mentally slow adults.  I see a bunch of people complain about Byteball (and all other projects as well), simply because they have no damn clue as to what they're doing.  They read what they want and ignore everything else.  So, when they can't figure out how they just spent $8, they complain the project is at fault and ignore what the transition bot said.  It's simply amazing how many of those 'kids' have no idea what a change address is or how to move coins but actually have coins to even move (without having lost them).  Almost as amazing is how many of those people have $100 worth of coin and willing to pay an $8 transaction, but complain that they haven't received $1000 worth of free coin.  They just simply have no clue and almost no amount of coaching will every help them or even change their mind that something is good or bad, because they've already made the decision in their head that it can't be their fault for having not followed directions.

No, these are reasonable users that the project is driving away by being asinine. Why on earth should users not be refunded when a project-sponsored verification fails do to technical reasons? And why is it a goal of this project to make everything user-unfriendly as possible while making public no plans for improvement? The market's trust in this project is fading because of poor leadership attitudes and I say that as someone with a lot of GB. Tony doesn't seem to care about the price of GB nor the market perception, saying exchanges and "traders" are unnecessary.

Also, will there or will there not be an aidrop in March? What will happen with all the remaining bytes?

Reasonable users?   Ha!
Your response is akin to saying... Why shouldn't I be refunded by the casino if the ball lands on Red when I put my money on Black?   I mean, I intended to bet on Black, so it should be considered a win even though it was my mistake for physically putting it on Red.   Just like all the people investing on known Ponzi scams working out great until it fails and then complain that they lost their money and want it back.  LOL.  If someone invests in something and it makes money, they are happy.  If they invest and it goes down, it's everyone's fault but their own and they feel entitled to get everything back.

I like the rest of your paragraph.  You simply made everything up.   I don't see where the goal was to make things user-unfriendly - Please quote your source.
You also said Tony doesn't seem to care.  --- Please post where you came up with this far fetched idea as well.
Even better was your statement in which you quoted out of context.

Also, if you read the OP (Original Post) or even look at the website, you will see the next 'tentative' airdrop is in March.  I realize you are standing in line to get the free welfare check and complaining that there is no leather recliner to sit in.

Tony seems to care more about the project than the price.  I agree.  He wants the project to work (as I see it).   So, if the project succeeds, then the price will come.
Everyone is upset with the price; however, the price has tanked on everything - Everything.  So, be sure to look relatively at other coins as well.


Hi guys. I need help.

I installed the byteball wallet from play store. I'm not sure but i think it didn't ask me if i wanted a light or a full wallet at start, and now it keep saying syncing.....

Do the android app default to a full wallet? I want a light wallet cause my android device can't contain the entire byteball blockchain.

What i did wrong?

Thanks.

This must be another problem. There is no full wallet for Android.

Thanks for your reply.

I've found an open issue that could be the one i'm experiencing: https://github.com/byteball/byteball/issues/266

My situation is very similar cause i sent some blackbytes to the android wallet that can't sync.

Don't know what to do. If someone have hints please help.

Only lite wallet for android/ios.

If you can't sync, then you likely have TOR or some other feature installed which is blocking communication with byteball servers.

If your wallet shows syncing private payments, then it will need to be fixed.  You can send me the wallet and I will fix it for you.
- No, I will not go through the process via chat/dm.

If you have 0 bytes and 0 blackbytes then you don't have the above issue issue with a wallet that is trying to sync private payments.


Question regarding the Airdrop:
I've moved my BTC to a segwit address (starting with 3..). The chatbot gives me the following response:
Quote
Only P2PKH addresses (those that start with 1) can sign messages. You can prove ownership of xyz only by microtransaction.
My question is: How can I make such a transaction? What is the address that I've to send to?
Has anyone successfully registered a segwit address with a micro transaction and can give me some guidance? I've checked the Byteball Wiki but couldn't find the answer there.


Segwit addresses are not supported because SegWitCoin is not Bitcoin. You have to use a regular Bitcoin address for linking (the one starting with 1... ).
I have not seen Tony declare something against SegWit.
AFAIK, the reason for SegWit addresses not being supported has something to do with infrastructure in the new Bitcoin network, which at the present moment does not allow sign message.


Tony has nothing against SegWit.
Quite simply, you can't sign a transaction with the transition bot with a segwit address.  No signature.

If your intent is to claim bytes for a distribution, then move your coins to a legacy address just prior to the snapshot in order to get your claim.  There is another trick is making a transaction from your sw address, and sign via your legacy so that the bot will see both addresses as valid.  Sorry, I don't use SW, so I don't have an example to show you.  Smiley

Vote for Byteball.

https://bitindia.co/vote.html
Lets vote !


Tell me where to find information to restore access to your wallet? if it was crashing Windows?

I believe you are using Windows.
Byteball the program is in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Byteball

Byteball (the wallet) is in:
%localappdata%\byteball
which in my case translates to:
C:\Users\Michail\AppData\Local\byteball

When you make a backup, it stores (by default) the encrypted file in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Byteball   using a name format similar to:   ByteballBackup-2018-02-07-07-22-49.encrypted

If you didn't make a backup, then you don't have that file to look for, but the data directory for your wallet still exists.

I understand that you are a bit angry like many people (and myself) about this stuff, but please consider that this is determinist, they can't easily reinvent everything

I am not talking about xpub, but the public key associated to anyone's address, even if it's supposed to be public, which is not the case in fact since all of what you get is the hash of the public key (ie your address), you can only get it when a transaction happens where the public key is disclosed finally

Then let's try understanding what they are doing, there is no magic there, and the more info I get the better it is (ideally a post/email "real time" with a transaction spending some unused coins so I can get it and see all the details, which is not possible with their explorer)

No, I am not angry at all.  UB is a bullshit coin.  I was just trying to point out how bad they are.

I'll try to find someone with coins that they are able to move (if I can) and DM you directly.
