Clearly, you're missing my point. If you want to run a business, you should never be rude. Talking about running a business: how's your gambling license doing?

I'm sorry who are you to tell me what to do, think or say? What's wrong with your little brain?  Wink

I wonder how that goes down irl for you. I'm sure you don't because I bet no one wants to be around you :-)

I run on a no asshole rule basis -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_No_Asshole_Rule#:~:text=The%20theme%20of%20this%20book,the%20same%20degree%20of%20awfulness%22.

You're an asshole you don't get service, easy. Move on with your day.

 Roll Eyes Really mature, so I guess you're white knighting your way into seeing this fail because you can't even understand how it works?

No wonder BTC and crypto are treated as a public enemy, specially when goofs like you seem to be "community gold"

Where's all your tax returns for every BTC you've ever owned? I'd love to see those.

Why don't you publish them here? Otherwise we can't verify.

Oh actually why don't I make it a full time job to find out who you are, and if you've correctly reported all your coins?

I mean there's a big paper trail of comments in this forum so I'm sure we can build a persona out of that. I bet you use the same username for everything across the net as well :-) I might give it a little go

The legislation in which this enterprise is based might have a permit. The legislation where this enterprise is based might not have a requirement to identify itself.

You're now going to say it's impossible to trust it.

Then why is Satoshi Nakamoto not a fraud? Wasn't he called a fraud when btc just started? I bet he ran into a million people like you, but unlike me, he chose to ignore it, which I will from now on.

Yes it's true the preimage for us only "exists" is known once the invoice is settled, because YOU have to reveal it in order to claim the payment that was made to the payment_hash (a hash of the PREIMAGE)

That's my point

Quote
Since a preimage is really just the equivalent of a random sha hash, you could start with a good secret and then make a hash of a hash n times, and replay that. Once the new bet is placed you can reveal the old hash to everyone in order to prove you're not alternating between hash chains.
Now that I think about it, this might be less than ideal since the kth+1 hash will be the payment_hash of the kth hash, though I don't see how this could be exploited really, just a funny gimmick.

I think you genuinely seem to misunderstand how payments are done through the lightning network, so I don't really get all the negative vibes in this thread here.

You're going down the route of a hypothetical case where I am in fact trying to supply a preimage to game out a randomness function thats deterministic based on an input. Or that I've altered the lightning protocol in a way where preimage generation is fixed.

Not what's happening not what I'm doing. Have you read the verify section of the site?

The only things that I do see offering more transparency are:

1) Get an audit from a third party - link to it from the page. Some eth contracts do this. I don't think it helps them appear as more transparent
2) Offer a "longer" receipt. Where you see each interaction with the lightning node, so you can see exactly what params were supplied for each time you interacted with it
3) Have a multi-seed setup where seed A) is supplied by the user and seed B) is supplied by me and rotated constantly, completely public

None of these ^^^ are things that other apps in the same space do.

You're the one who's in the unfavorable position to prove things, not me. You're the one who claims your game is provably fair. Argue that claim. I can't prove you're generating non-random numbers, and neither do I believe you do; that doesn't mean it's technically impossible for you or another party (whoever owns the node) to rip the users off. That's why I argue against, and say that you're faithfully fair.

I'm in a favorable position because I've backed every claim made instead of garbling nonsense like you have

Quote
You've yet to comprehend my point. I don't say that Lightning software is written in a way that makes pre-image generation non-random. I'm saying that it's entirely possible to alter the source code individually and make it generate non-random pre-images.

This sentence summarises your level of knowledge on the topic

It also summarises your thinking capacity


Quote
But, can you prove that you don't own it? And if you do (which you don't), can you also prove that the person who owns it isn't ill-intentioned? No. Faith is required.

Read above.

For the reader out there, look at this person:

Quote
was eager to find out how provably fairness is reassured in your game, and that's why I got involved into talking to you. Once I saw you hadn't made it clear in your website, and that you quickly switched to an obnoxious childish piece of Internet crap


Quote
As for the username, should I conclude you're literally a shell and a bull? Seriously, how old are you?

And please draw your own conclusions  Wink


Quote
Making use of an external software, that is a Lightning client, to generate a seed doesn't preclude the possibility that some party can alter it for their advantage.

Can you explain why? with details and code snippets please.

Same issue as before its going to happen.

1) You make a wild remark
2) I ask you to prove it
3) You tangentially decline to prove it and quote you're too busy and don't care the enough but keep coming back to comment
4) The circle repeats

You haven't even been able to post how preimages are generated in the lightning network. Not even that.

And as said before. When you pay an invoice, the call goes through YOUR WALLET SOFTWARE, which connects to a node THAT I DO NOT OWN. So how could I possibly tamper with the preimage generation?

If any an end user could tamper with it...this app would be the least of our issues because people could do all sorts of stuff. It's like saying the tech is perfectly penetrable since its open source

@BlackHatCoiner Why don't you just stake another 1,000 sats on a 50/50 basis and follow the instructions + film a video and post it here. So we can see what happens when you use it

@Pmalek has a valid comment

Quote
I am honestly surprised about the way you decided to handle this. It doesn't give the impression of a trustworthy individual. Maybe you are an excellent developer, maybe better than anyone who responded in this thread, but you have failed on your customer relationship management big time. If I have a choice of shopping in an establishment that is more expensive, but I am valued and greeted with a smile and a good day, compared to one that is cheaper but the owner laughs at the way I look or talk, I would shop at the more expensive store.


Here's a full breakdown and my view on the situation:

1) He was being rude and I was being rude back.

2) His username is also "blackhatcoiner"

By definition a black hat is someone thats trying to maliciously gain information about a system -> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_hat_(computer_security)#:~:text=Black%20hat%20hackers%20break%20into,unusable%20for%20authorized%20network%20users.

It is *very common* practice for any attacker/intruder to anally scrutinise and ask questions about the system he's about to attack.

Where the naked eye sees a customer being "mistreated". I see someone wearing a baklava outside a bank asking bank tellers about opening times.

And for the record, the bit of information he didn't understand has nothing to do with my app, but how the lightning network generates preimages


Quote
Let's say BlackHatCoiner didn't understand how all this works. How can you blame him if there is conflicting information? First, it's you who generates the invoice, then you have nothing to do with the preimage and the lightning implementation generates the invoice.

Quote
Instead of calling someone a troll, you could actually explain it properly. Or maybe the service is meant for experienced coders and developers only and the regular users (douchebags) should just go elsewhere and keep their mouths shut?   

I did. and his response is that I am somehow tampering with the preimage. But the preimage is generated by the paying customer's lightning node, nothing to do with me!

I asked him to show me how, then I got no response

Quote
Rath_ has always struck me as being very knowledgeable about LN matters. I am going to PM him to check this out if he wants to. Maybe he can help to clear up all the fuzzy stuff.

That would be great. I ran my implementation past some LND developers and they said a preimage is a valid random seed for any sort of lightning application development. I was also met with happy reactions in other forums: https://ibb.co/KbL9DRL

I am open to tweak my implementation if it can be proven unambiguously that a seed off a preimage can be tampered with, based on my current description of matters

Hi everyone!

I have an update to make  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

We have now introduced multiple odds on satsumo roll!

https://roll.satsumo.xyz/

You can now stake on 1/2, 1/6 or even 1/10 odds for bigger payouts!

If you're using this product for the first time please feel free to film a little video using the app for the first time! If you run into any issues and the problem is captured on film we will refund your sats on the spot
7  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: For those of you that launched crypto based project. Any useful tips? on: September 23, 2022, 06:26:12 AM
Learn that there'll be detractors smearing your app even if they don't understand it

see what happened to me and my product https://roll.satsumo.xyz/ here -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5414038.0

People with positive feedback rarely leave a comment, but a bad apple will go out and make 10, it looks bad. So you have to answer to them, even if you don't want to
8  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Anyone up for Beta Testing a Prototype on Lightning Network? on: September 22, 2022, 06:26:33 PM
If your game is fair by the assumption that you won't alter your server-side software without being possible for anyone to verify the difference, it isn't provably fair. It's faithfully fair.

Moron.

The seed isn't generated by my server, that was explained already. Again, read the other comments. Whine all you want.

I have people staking, winning or losing and moving on with their day happily.

When they're curious about the seed, they run the verification script and read the /fair page. They understand it and let it be
9  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Anyone up for Beta Testing a Prototype on Lightning Network? on: September 22, 2022, 06:10:59 PM
From the above, I conclude that either you or a third party runs a Lightning node you connect to, server-side, and which generates the invoice whose pre-image clients use as seeds. Therefore, it's entirely possible for the entity that controls the Lightning node to pass an invoice with non-random pre-image. Isn't that correct?


Nope its not correct, you don't understand. I explained it above, go and read that.

Not even how the data flows.

Read my previous answers.

Read the lightning specification ->  https://github.com/lightning/bolts/blob/master/00-introduction.md

Read the source code of a lightning node implementation -> https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lnd is pretty good also https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair

Read about preimages there. If you still feel like coming back here and garble hurr durr my seed isn't truly random & verifiable please do back your claims with data, code snippets, verifications, etc.

Repeat yourself all you want, rephrase yourself all you want, I don't care. You asked a question and got an answer.

Also, for the readers out there:

This person is alluding to the fact that  ANY developer can openly tamper with the various implementations of the protocol to get something that they want.

If that was a thing there would be bigger stuff to fish rather than developing an app where the max bet is ...$9 and every single one of us would have WAY more things to worry about.

You genuinely sound very schizo pal, I'm sorry to say this.

"quality"

> I don't criticize your work. I'm asking you some questions so I can understand it and verify that it's actually provably fair. "Don't trust, verify", remember?


Answered already above. Lightning protocol code snippets where provided


> Refusing to answer to your clients' simple questions is an asshole policy. With all the respect.

Complete lies, your questions were answered, multiple times in different ways.

I genuinely challenge your state of mental health for carrying on with this conversation, specially after you failed to back your claims with data.

Again, don't you think readers are suspicious about the fact that you said you were "too busy and didn't care  the enough" to dig up the code and debate me. yet you still have the time and care the enough to mumble the same thing over and over again?

You're literally in a corner mumbling hurr durr my seed hurr durr can't verify hurr durr this is a scam.

It was answered. it's verifiable. I thank whoever developed lightning for this tech because its awesome, it solves a problem and it works!

This is the internet, anyone with a keyboard can post N-times and gain clout on a forum, its not indicative of knowledge on a domain nor skill. I am a biz owner defending his business. And as I said before, this gives me promotion as it continues to bump the thread.

Unlike you I do have the time and I do care enough to refute poorly held claims. I've backed it every time

I'm classed as a newbie because I am new to a forum that scores users based on comments not on comment quality. So whoever talks the most gets a shinnier JPEG next to their username and they're suddenly an expert?  Roll Eyes

Do as you will, its a free world  Cool

Our PR has been great in every other forum, slack, discord, etc.

@BlackHatCoiner Isn't the 1st, 2d, not even 10th person to ask about the verification process. He is however the 1st one to criticise it without even being able to understand it. I don't care for having users like him when there's another 100 people staking, winning and moving on with their day

Yeah public image is important but as the person running this I can tell you I have a no asshole policy. He's an asshole therefore gets no service.

I've decided not to reply to your comments anymore, they have been answered already. I have decided not to support you as a user.

You're just trolling to keep the last word and smear something just because you don't have the mental capacity to understand it.

You've consistently failed to point and quote code backing your claims. You use "not caring the enough or not having the time for it" as a justification, but you do have the time to come back and respond???  Huh Huh Huh Huh

For every silly, goofy comment you make I'll just reply back with the same.

This will forever bump this thread giving my product more views.  Kiss thanks for the clout

Anyone with good software engineering knowledge will read it and understand that you're obviously wrong here

Don't feed the troll kids

> I don't have the time to refute you by pointing to the source code, nor do I want to

I think this attitude settles the entire conversation

You ask for proof and verifiability and you get it, then discard it. Code to support it is provided too

You get asked for proof and verifiability of your claims and you don't provide it  Huh Huh Huh Then you go and ask for people to believe you or say you're too busy. But you ain't busy enough to reply back? ffs

I've answered your other comments already and I won't answer them again.

We're running a fun experience, still in early days, some people are getting payouts and the feedback is mostly positive.

Judging by your way of dissecting things and how you reciprocate back I can only attest that you're not a user I'd cater for. I don't care to support your questions nor your use cases, feel free to never use my app again

 Cool

> I'm using C-Lightning v0.10.2 with RTL v0.12.3.

I found RLT buggy when I tried to use it, I wouldn't recommend it, its your coins.

> Look after your wording. You're the one who's generating the invoice, and thus the pre-image. Isn't that correct? Your server decides what my invoice will be. The pre-image you generate is strictly correlated with my seed. What prevents you from generating an invoice with non-random pre-image?

No its not correct. The lightning implementation generates an invoice. We run an LND instance on voltage, we communicate to it server-side.

The preimage doesn't exist when you generate an invoice

The preimage exists ONLY when you settle an invoice.

The preimage is generated by the lightning implementation you communicate to when YOU make a payment USING YOUR WALLET. ITS GENERATED BY YOU if anything.

If you don't believe me please go to the source code and point to the place where I'm wrong. I'm happy to refute it.

> It just froze. My internet was fine. The submission button was disabled for a couple of minutes, and the page remained the same.

Can you prove that to me?

You're the only person with all these issues.

First you ask for a full on breakdown of how the seed is verifiable

Then you go out and make a claim you can't provide verification for and implicitly ask me to just believe you - do you see where this is going?  Huh Huh Huh

I also have to be brutally honest here.

I communicated in a clear manner how it all works and why it's transparent.

I've had this conversation many times with other people including software developers and lightning contributors and they're all happy with it and understand why its verifiable.

EDIT: @BlackHatCoiner Failed to demonstrate how this is not verifiable, then wen't on a smear campaign. I'd advise to ignore him


Okay, so the thousand satoshis were successfully routed to you this time. Generated a 1,980 satoshi invoice, and let it toss the coin. The page loaded, it was tails, I lost, and it showed me that if I wanted to verify the result, I should run the following command:
Code:
curl -s https://gist.githubusercontent.com/shellandbull/5ab714d5480995eeb92078c7e0d30f9e/raw/a6a6bbb7ca14def28fc6d948136c04cd75edd1aa/verify.rb | ruby /dev/stdin 793 50

Ran it, and got:
Code:
----------
seed - 793
odds - 50
House won? true
----------

Would you mind explaining a little bit what's behind this? And perhaps answer the two previous questions:
I don't understand who's generating the seed. If I do it locally, and hand it over to you, with source code transparent, can't I cheat the game? Analogously, if I don't do it locally, and you hand me over the seed, can't you cheat me?




I think I've found a bug. I've sent another 1,000, but your page has stuck here. It doesn't do anything. I have not received anything back, so I assume the coin isn't being tossed in the background.



I'm the developer. I'll answer your comments.

> Okay, so the thousand satoshis were successfully routed to you this time

There's a ton of reasons why sats are not routed properly through lightning.

I don't know if your wallet has issues or if the node your wallet uses has issues. This is the feedback that I got from LND core developers when trying to troubleshoot this.

I "fixed" your issue by resetting mission control on our lightning node.

This erases previous routing failures. I don't know why you had a routing failure to start with and I'm not responsible for that either, as your transactions don't run through my node. If it was a routing failure coming from a payout then please by all means report it and we will sort it. Payouts come out of our node.

For the record we are aiming for users that are using battle tested software(WoS, Zeus, LND, Alby)

If your setup is non-standard please don't use my app  Cry

Would you mind explaining a little bit what's behind this? And perhaps answer the two previous questions:

It's explained on the fair section of the app -> https://roll.satsumo.xyz/#/fair and was written by my colleague. But I'll give you a TL;DR in bullets as I think its a format thats easy to digest


1) You pay us an invoice - the invoice becomes settled and has a preimage
2) the Preimage is a series of bytes on the invoice, as per -> https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lnd/blob/master/lnrpc/lightning.proto#L3260-L3265
3) We decode that preimage and turn it into a NUMERICAL value. The "algorithm" to construct that number is here https://roll.satsumo.xyz/images/seed-generation.svg
4) That number is YOUR SEED. that SEED is a DETERMINISTIC INPUT for a randomness function. For the same input you get the same output, this is why its verifiable
6) We send you that seed back alongside with the code snippet that determines wether you win or not
7) You run the code and verify your result

The preimage, so in fact, the input, is generated by lightning and nothing to do with us. Hence fair.

So again, to answer your comment

> If I do it locally, and hand it over to you, with source code transparent, can't I cheat the game? Analogously, if I don't do it locally, and you hand me over the seed, can't you cheat me?

You have access to your seed the entire time, its automatically generated when you pay us, you have access to it, we have access to it. There's no cheating. The code is the same as shown in https://roll.satsumo.xyz/#/fair

> I think I've found a bug. I've sent another 1,000, but your page has stuck here. It doesn't do anything. I have not received anything back, so I assume the coin isn't being tossed in the background.


It could be issues with your internet connection - Did it just froze forever? You would need to show me some sort of error message or failed HTTP request. Otherwise I wouldn't know if its something to do with your setup or connection. You're the first person to run into all of these issues.
