Yes hurry, the bot link is byteball:A2WMb6JEIrMhxVk+I0gIIW1vmM3ToKoLkNF8TqUV5UvX@byteball.org/bb#0000

then click ... in the chat box and "insert my address" and follow instructions

it say upgrade required

Where do you see how many bitcoins are linked with byteball addresses? If it's possible to link exchange wallets or wallets you do not control directly it might be that most addresses linked are part of exchange's cold wallet. According to the official source, you can either make a payment or sign a message from an address you control. You're not bound to go with the second option since you can make a small payment.

http://transition.byteball.org/

You can't link an address you don't control.  Hell, if that could be done, I would simply claim all coins.

You have to make a payment from the bitcoin address you're trying to claim, or sign a message from it.

For your exchange example..... there is no way to know which address the exchange is going to pay with.  Also, according to the site, if you claim an address via two diff byteball wallets, then the bitcoin address is ignored.  So, even if you could claim it and someone else does, then the address is blocked from distribution.

I hadn't paid much attention to this before but am interested in supporting, but I am curious, are we still at 10/50BTC given the intent of the original amounts and the current value relative to fiat?
Yes we still are.The rule of not calculating the value of bitcoins in terms of fiat is followed while taking the donator status otherwise it would be unfair for the previous donars.
Having said that,you can always donate whatever amount to the address mentioned in the donate tab.Forum doesn't depend on donations now.

I don't agree with it being unfair to previous donars.

Donating back then was about $100 for 10BTC.  Now, it's $17k.
Most of those who donated simply wanted to be on the list and it was cheap.   Asking $17k simply stops 99.9% of the public from getting a badge.  It also probably puts a near stop on regular donations as well.

At some kind of minimum, the scammers should be removed from the list.  It's bad advertising.

Since the value of Bitcoin has gone up drastically, relative to everything else, shouldn't there be a decrease in the total BTC donation amount?
No, theymos ever said the donation amount won't change no matter how far bitcoin price changed.
Theymos refers to bitcoin, not dollar.

I agree with your answer being correct; however, I totally disagree with it.

What I feel is a shame is that some listed donation badges are scammers from long ago and they are not removed.  Any new company or legit person trying to get the badge simply can't because of the price of bitcoin.

Example:  In the beginning of donations, I could donate 50btc for a cost of about $500.  There is no chance I would donate $87000 today.
I can understand that it's nice to keep the list relatively short, but to expect 200 times the amount is absurd.  When bitcoin hits $10,000 is it still going to be 50BTC, You know, only $500k to be listed and have the badge.

This blocks everyone from donating.  That said, it also implies that bitcointalk.org is limiting the number of donations it gets.

How many % of the total amount will be distributed in the 5th round of the airdrop?

Depends on the number of bitcoin registered.

Distribution is 0.0625 bytes per bitcoin (and bonus from prior bytes).

So, until the drop, they don't know an exact amount.

Quote from the site is:
"In the 5th round, which is scheduled for the full moon of May (May 10, 2017 at 21:42 UTC), we'll distribute 62.5 MB for each 1 BTC of linked balance and 0.1 new byte for each 1 byte you already hold."

646  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: May 10, 2017, 04:44:26 PM
Total balance linked: 194007.44006527 BTC

that's a lot of bitcoin.

almost 1.2% of total bitcoin linked their address with byteball.


9632 users



Where did you get the 9632 users?   Did you interpret that from number of entries?   Just to be fair, if so, then the number of users is less.   I am sure people are registering multiple addresses and/or wallets.
647  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: May 10, 2017, 04:40:29 PM

that did the trick, thank you.

i forgot that i did a transaction after that and my nano s emptied the linked account into a new one so i would've gotten nothing more than 0.1 per existing gb.

worth a check for everyone.

Welcome.

As for the nano, there is nothing saying you couldn't send your bitcoin back to that linked address.  Remember distribution is a snap shot.  So, if you have 1 coin in it before, and now you have 2, you get the bonus plus.

Reusing addresses isn't recommended though, but not because it will break anything other than the semi anonymous nature of your transactions.
648  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: May 10, 2017, 04:05:30 PM
I think I have multiple Byteball addresses in my wallet. Do I have to link them all with the bot to get blackbytes for each?

No, you don't get byteball based on byteball addresses.  You get byteball based on Bitcoin addresses link to your byteball address(es).

To see what your byteball addresses are:
Click Home, then Cogwheel (preferences), Advanced, Wallet Information.... scroll to bottom.

Unless I misunderstood what you're asking.

649  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: May 10, 2017, 03:51:42 PM
is there any way to get the chat bot to tell me what my linked bitcoin addresses are? i can't remember at the moment and can't get to my wallet.

You could look in your Transition Bot chat history.

Or,

You could go to:
http://transition.byteball.org/

In the search box, fill in your Byteball address and it will show the linked addresses

Is the bot down?  I'm getting the connection closed error

Just lagged.

To bad the chatbot appears to be down.   Can't link.

It should be BUYERS CHOICE for escrow, we're the ones forking out all the funds. It should be who the BUYER is comfortable with. But, I understand some people are "control freaks". I retract my bid. TYVM

Absolutely not.   For a buyer to demand THE escrow is absurd.  If that were the case, then any scammer would simply select themselves as escrow.  Might as well simply demand the seller ship first prior to any payment or demand they accept an IOU, bad check, stolen credit card, hacked bank account, or hijacked paypal.

The seller is the one to select the escrow and/or gives various escrow options and let the buyer select from that.  Agreed that both should be comfortable with the choice should escrow even be needed.

Nice premium building on this auction...I suppose I'll have to cut out of work to watch this auction finish!

Better hurry, cause it ended last night.  Smiley

So, it ends tonight.  Midnight for his time zone  (MDT)

That is 6AM UTC  (Forum time)

Just watch the forum clock on the top right.  Less than 12.5 hours to go.

(Time zones makes this fun for sniping.)
656  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [AUCTION] Casascius 25 Original 2011 on: May 07, 2017, 05:25:41 PM

Today MDT is -7 hours from UTC. On Nov. 6th of this year MDT will be -6 from UTC.

Uhh, no.

DST = Daylight Savings Time.  It started on Mar 12th.  So, we are in xDT time zones.

PDT (Pacific) is currently -7
MDT (Mountain) is currently -6
CDT (Central) is currently -5
EDT (Eastern) is currently -4

On November 5th, we go to Standard Time zones  ( xST)

PST -8
MST -7
CST -6
EST -5

Current UTC time is (with Pacific and Mountain examples):
https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?iso=20170507T170000&p1=1440&p2=234&p3=220

Theory and reasons for DST:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time

And to clear up a confusion your computer might display.... When you go to the clock to enter your time zone, it will show you Standard Time (PST for example for Pacific), but will either have a checkbox for observing daylight savings or simply do it for you based on the calendar date but will tell you that it is currently observing this change.  Yes, Windows has a checkbox asking if you're in a DST zone.  There are very few places that have an exception to the DST rule (like Arizona).

Term:  Spring forward / Fall back
In November, it is fall.  So, the clocks will fall back (extra hour of sleep).  So, for MDT -6, it will change to MST -7
PDT -7 will go to PST -8

(edit:  confirmation.  Bitcointalk is on UTC.  Time of my post was 5:25PM UTC; however, I am in Seattle (PDT -7), so it is 10:25AM for me right now.)

Problem fixed!

Thanks for the help

Awesome.
658  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: May 05, 2017, 05:48:34 PM

By the keys you mean the seed, right? It doesn't matter where you use it (phone or tablet), It will work on both as long as the Mycelium app can run on the device.

No.  That's why I think you're confusing the process.

Your master seed is the twelve words.  From that, all HD keys are generated, etc.  There is no need to 'import' or 'export' any keys.

So, when you said you imported, it means you had a real specific reason to import an address (like a vanity address).  A standard person playing with a wallet should not be importing keys nor exporting them without specific reasons.

The master seed of 12 words give you billions of addresses.  Why trying to import or export more?   Smiley

You're welcome to private chat with me to get this resolved instead of chatter in this thread.
659  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: May 05, 2017, 05:45:07 PM
Okay! I will try that as soon as i get another phone.

one last question

if I import the keys I tried to import to my phone straight to my tablet would that not resolve the issue?

Thanks for your patience

I'm not so sure you're wording it correctly.
Rarely, if ever, do people import private keys into a mycelium wallet.  There has to be an exact reason for it (like a vanity address).
You're again trying to make it more complicated than it should be.

Do you specifically remember importing a private key into your mycelium?  I've only done this a couple of times for really specific reasons.

Also, if you have a valid backup of your wallet (seed and imported keys) from the tablet, then simply reset the app to try to recover the seed you're having issues with.

Also note.... mycelium makes recommendations on backing up / verifying backups from time to time.  Have you done this?  It also lets you know if an imported key was done and warns you that it may not be a part of the backup.  Big giant RED text type stuff.
660  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: May 05, 2017, 05:12:48 PM


So by installing mycelium on another phone restoring the seed is the easiest solution?

Yup.
