Do we got the same portion of Byteball per btc wallet or it depends on how much btc in our wallet?

The more btc you have, the more bytes you'll get.

But this could be a problem, that I need to have two separate assets, one for public tx only, another for private tx only. usually people want to do private tx only for some transactions.
You'll receive both bytes and blackbytes in the distribution, so both currencies will be quite wide spread.

So if I understand it correctly, that these are for 3rd party assets transactions, that I can use bytes/blackbytes as the "gas" for their transactions (public or private), but I can't for bytes itself when I consider it as an asset?

Bytes are "gas" for all transactions, including those that move only bytes.  Blackbytes are not "gas", it's just a regular asset.

Now it works!  Shocked

I've tested to link one bitcoin address. After this tx got a confirmation, the bot showed me my current linked bitcoin balance and my linked address. After that, I've moved my whole bitcoin balance to this address. My wallet (mycelium android app) gave me a warning about sending to one of my own addresses, but this is OK and can be ignored. Funny thing is that the tx value shown in the mycelium wallet isn't correct, it's only the miner fee! After this tx got a confirmation, I've chatted again with the bot and he updated my bitcoin balance correctly. Thumbs up for this!  Grin

Thanks for helping to fix a bug Smiley

Now I will do the same with signing a message. I guess I have to install another Byteball TN wallet on another system for this?

Actually, you can use the same wallet.  Just send your bitcoin address, the chatbot will recognize it.  You can prove multiple addresses and use any combination of the two methods to prove them -- micropayment and signing a message.

Do we need to send bitcoin to an address chosen by byteball wallet? are we the sole owner of the private key of our address?
You send a micropayment to our address the chatbot tells you, then you send your bitcoin to one of your addresses that the chatbot sees.
Yes, you should be the sole owner of your address.

What gives this coin value beside bitcoin? what does it do if someone wants to know when should they go and try to buy or earn byteball when they are in need of something, what could be that thing?

When I want to buy a sandwich I'll go fast food, what am I going to get when I come to byteball?

Are you asking about byteball (the network) or bytes (the currency)?

If you are asking about the network, it enables currencies (AKA assets) that can represent debt, shares, property, etc.  They can have any properties the issuer wants, from complete privacy of transactions to regulatory compliance (you already know that from your signature Smiley), you would buy one asset when you need to invest in a bond, another asset when you want to own shares, etc.

If you are asking about bytes, yvv already said that you need bytes to pay for using the network.  Every time you move other assets, you pay fees in bytes.

That said, you can buy pizza for bytes https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.msg16330266#msg16330266

As we all know bitcoin is much easier when you want to explain the purpose of using it.

How would you do it?

i am try pay btc at bot chart , i am try send from blockchain wallet but addy invalid  Shocked

Remember you need to use testnet Bitcoin wallet.

I've just tried the ByteballTN app on my android and was instructed to send out 0.000613 BTC.
I did this with the mycelium testnet app. After I've sent the exact amount, I now get this message in the Byteball app:
Quote
I received 0.000613 BTC from n2kF....., expected 0.000613 BTC. Please send exactly the requested amount (if it was you).

Transaction: https://live.blockcypher.com/btc-testnet/address/mxuMqw1Qgi8oYWvAbmQUbHVMHiq5RR1cWb/
I've done it again, no change.

It was inaccurate comparison of numbers, I think I fixed it now, please try again.

The bot isn't answering me. Normally I input a "Hi" and then it answers back. Seems to be dead, you've killed it  Cheesy

Restarted Smiley

Why we use two set of currency, why not use one and when the user send fund around he can choose if he wants the transaction be private or not?

If it were allowed, a single user who wants to remove privacy would also reveal all previous owners of the coin.

A question: this system requires 12 witness, the 12 is randomly chosen right? I can be 120 if needed?

It is one of protocol constants https://github.com/byteball/byteballcore/blob/master/constants.js.
You can choose another number but that'll be another network.
591  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: November 11, 2016, 09:26:23 AM
It took me 12+ hours to sync the wallet... given that this is only testnet now, I think it will have serious performance issue later on, when we go alive.

We are currently working on improving sync speed.

Also, when link BTC address, my BTC wallet has several addresses, do I need to link all of them? or do I have to transfer BTC to one single address in my wallet?

Both options are available https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.msg16837694#msg16837694
592  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: November 11, 2016, 09:03:02 AM
Is it possible to create several Byteball addresses in one wallet. I think it would be saver to not put all eggs in one basket by linking to only one address. What do you think?
You have several addresses per wallet, but only one is linked.  There is no point linking several because the wallet (not the address) is the basket.
593  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: November 11, 2016, 08:06:43 AM
b.  By signing a message (if your Bitcoin wallet supports this function).  You tell the bot your Bitcoin address and sign your Byteball address with the Bitcoin address.  After you prove one address (a typical Bitcoin wallet has dozens of them), you can either move all your coins to this single proven address or prove all other addresses in the same way -- by signing a message.

Thanks for this option ! <3
Thanks, hope this method will work on mainnet.
What is signing a message?

Use the other option.  Signing a message is for cryptonerds Smiley

Finally, you can experience the pre-distribution linking of Byteball and Bitcoin addresses.

We are launching a new testnet, and you'll be able to get a portion of its distribution in proportion to your balance in Bitcoin testnet.

0.  Get your Bitcoin testnet wallet ready and funded.

1.  Download and install the wallet for the new Byteball testnet: https://github.com/byteball/byteball/releases
You will have two Byteball wallets - one for the old testnet that you already have, the other for the upcoming new testnet.

2.  Visit https://byteball.org and click the link to chat with the Transition Bot.  The link will open the new wallet and start a chat.  Follow the instructions of the Transition Bot to prove your Bitcoin balance.


You have two options to prove your Bitcoin balance:
a.  By making a micropayment.  The bot will see your address the payment came from, will know that it is your address, and will instruct you to move your Bitcoins to this address.  By making several micropayments, you can link several Bitcoin addresses to the same Byteball address.
b.  By signing a message (if your Bitcoin wallet supports this function).  You tell the bot your Bitcoin address and sign your Byteball address with the Bitcoin address.  After you prove one address (a typical Bitcoin wallet has dozens of them), you can either move all your coins to this single proven address or prove all other addresses in the same way -- by signing a message.

Update: to clarify, if you try to link the same Bitcoin address to multiple Byteball addresses, only the last linking counts.

If you prove by micropayment, remember to check that the Bitcoin address that the bot received the micropayment from, is indeed your address.  An attacker might see your payment on the blockchain and repeat the same micropayment from his address trying to trick you to move your funds to him.

3.  After linking, there is no use of the new wallet before the distribution, just keep it installed (backup if necessary).  It will receive the bytes on the distribution day.  If you make any Bitcoin payment, your coins will most likely be moved to a new change address.  Chat with the bot again, see the balance on your linked address(es) and move the coins back to the linked address(es) if necessary.

The linking phase will end in late November, after which we'll do the distribution for the new testnet.  Those who linked their Byteball and Bitcoin addresses will receive new test bytes in proportion to their Bitcoin testnet balances on the distribution day.

If all goes well, we'll do exactly same linking, but with real Bitcoin addresses, from early December to December 25 before the upcoming livenet launch and distribution.

But there is another problem in version 0.2 and 0.5 as well is crashing cinnamon.

Mint 18 cinnamon crashes - solved in v 0.6

I didn't notice any info about running byteball as a service or terminal only, is there RPC?
Where to find out about that?

Nothing was done specifically for cinnamon..

If you want to run byteball as a service, see https://github.com/byteball/headless-byteball.
There is no RPC, instead you use chat for the most basic commands, or write small javascript files for more advanced functionality like creating a new asset (there are multiple examples in the repository).

i have the 0.5 release and i'm going upgrade to 0.6 version. What's about syncing better doing it before upgrading or it is influent? My database i 5/6 days back. let me know thanks

It doesn't matter.  Syncing speed didn't change in 0.6.
597  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: November 09, 2016, 11:15:26 AM
Version 0.6.0 released https://github.com/byteball/byteball/releases

Important bugfixes:
* Fixed bugs that caused all newly created wallets to be broken after turning password protection on (thank you galaxiekyl!)
* Fixed crashes while trying to receive private payments with long history

Please upgrade.
Android release is already in Google Play.

how much will the byteballs i get in the first round be worth when i claim with them in the second round?

let's suppose i link 10 btc in the first round and get 100k byteballs. in the second round i link again my 10 btc and the 100k byteballs. another guy who missed the first round will link 20 btc in the second round. will i get exactly as many byteballs in the second round as this guy?

It depends on the total BTC linked in the second round.  If it is exactly same as in the 1st round, then yes you'll receive as many bytes as this guy.

Your example 100 Kbytes for 10 BTC is impossible.  Even if all BTC is linked in the 1st round (which will give you the smallest share), you receive:

10 BTC / 16,000,000 BTC * 1015 bytes * 10% = 62.5 MB

Sorry for getting the numbers so wrong Smiley

Ok. So let's suppose I get 62MB for 10 linked BTC in the first round. Now if in the second round the amount of linked btc doubles, my linked 62MB together with my 10 BTC, which I link again, will get as many MB as a guy who missed first round and linked 15 BTC in second round?

You can get this amount of bytes only if _all_ BTC are linked in the 1st round, so there will be no room to double in the 2nd round.  In this case, your 62.5 MB will count as 1 BTC and the total weight of your basket is 11 BTC, hence you get less than the guy with 15 BTC.

My previous answer was wrong: it is the total of BTC linked in the first round what matters, not the total in the second round.

Hey tony,

Can you tell me when you are expecting the airdrop to start so I can get my wallet ready. Thanks my friend.

We'll start linking Bitcoin and Byteball addresses in early December.

In a few days, we are starting a new testnet in order to test flight the distribution.  The distribution will be proportional to balances in Bitcoin testnet.
