For the record /r/cryptocurrency is the biggest pump-and-dump HODL scam nest on Reddit. Not being allowed to post there is in fact something to be proud of. That sub is oozing of lambo bois, fraudulent ICOs and money launderers who collude to pump everything that ultimately aligns with the Blockstream agenda (which is to thwart any real innovation in the space).

A couple of reasons why Byteball is not welcome there:
1. it was NOT launched as an ICO and none of the owners of r/cryptocurrency profit from Byteball's success
2. it attempts to solve real world problems, posing as an actual threat to the supremacy of Blockstream Token Coin (BTC) and Methereum (ETH)

TLDR: r/cryptocurrency is corrupt to the roots, Byteball is not corrupt and Byteball's success does not correlate well with the scamfest that is r/cryptocurrency and r/Bitcoin

I'm a Byteball dev and a service provider for the byteball platform and I'm still going to call it byteball because I never agreed with Obyte as it's an inconvenient name to pronounce and it looks weird. If you were going to change the name then at least do it right, or are you planning on doing this every year now so you don't need to put much effort into it? Makes me wonder. Anyway, the management has taken a step to the worse in multiple fronts so I'm not even mad. Dropping slack for an inferior service, changing the name into a worse one, having all these moon lambo bois like tarmo888 making dumb comments like "scaling can only come AFTER adoption". I'm glad the price is pumping with those pump and dump news though, because I am increasingly seeking for an exit from this project. It had all the potential in the world but is now screwed due to the uneducated but vocal moon lambo bois who joined the project with the last rally (2017/2018).

And no, I got my first Bytes in October 2017 (like most other cryptocurrencies I got) and joined Slack community in end of March 2018 when email attestation was announced.

^^^^
I rest my case, lambo boi


Quote from: Hyena
Probably best would be to fork the Byteball platform to maintain the original Tony's vision as defined in the Byteball's whitepaper  Grin.
But go ahead, make your fork, nobody is stopping you. Good luck.

You must be so butthurt by now that you can't recognize a joke even if it's deliberately accompanied with an emoticon  Grin

I mean, didn't the words "Tony's Vision" make you see a parallel with "Satoshi's Vision". Sure, the weather in Estonia is shit, but you don't have to let it affect your sense of humor, do you?

I'm sorry that you're fat and didn't buy bitcoin when it was cheap, but taking your bile onto others is just amplifying your already poor condition. Now you're fat, poor and don't have any friends either. How is this any  better? As a good old Estonian, always hating on his successful neighbor, right?

As for measuring and comparing dicks ( git PRs ), I've long outgrown from that phase. You will see what I've been working on when it's done.

Lol @ "Byteball dev". Couple of PRs and commits on Github doesn't make you a Obyte developer. You have just made some chatbots that hardly use any Obyte core functionality. You could easily port them to FB Messenger, are you going to call yourself FB Messenger developer then?

Slack was inferior service for Obyte because you don't understand the problems that the team had with Slack. Your solution to turn Obyte Slack into payed community is not a solution for a platform, which wants to be open for everybody, so Discord is better for that. Also, Slack was hell to moderate, Discord has better options for that because it is aimed to communities like that. Only things Discord is inferior to Slack: threaded comments and quoting.

I never said "scaling can only come AFTER adoption", what I said was that there is no point to focus on scaling when there is no need for scaling yet. Year ago Obyte could do 15TPS, now it can do already 30TPS on average (peaks can go even into hundreds or thousands), but the need for TPS is still below 1TPS. It is not only my opinion, it's opinion of others too, that's why it's not a main focus. I am just focal about it. Obyte already scales better than Bitcoin and Ethereum on base layer.

Tony knows how to scale it, it just not the main focus. Some steps for scaling has already been done with improving the SQL queries. Obyte core is not memory heavy or CPU heavy, it's heavy on the disk, so there are plenty of opportunities to scale from there (different databases have been tested). Eventually the whole ocore could be rewritten with C++ or some other low-level language (Node.js was chosen only to iterate faster in the beginning). And then there is layer-2, which Obyte haven't even touched yet.

I consider Hyena a lambo boi, you are the one who is looking at the exit sign, I don't plan to exit nor buy any lambos. I just don't like people shit-talking without actually helping the project any way.

Lol @ "Byteball dev". Couple of PRs and commits on Github doesn't make you a Obyte developer. You have just made some chatbots that hardly use any Obyte core functionality. You could easily port them to FB Messenger, are you going to call yourself FB Messenger developer then?

Apparently you have no idea what I've done for Byteball, not surprisingly though, because I was here long before you. Not only in terms of Byteball but in cryptocurrency general. You can see from my bitcointalk forum profile that I joined in early 2012. I got into bitcoin when it was cheap (4$) and I got into byteball when 1 gbyte was 10$. not to mention all the free gbytes I received during the initial distribution thanks to the bitcoins I linked. I am not surprised though, that you keep spitting bile at me, because you are one jealous (and fat) laggard which is apparent in your behavior. You appeared on the scene during the euphoria phase of the last rally and you know it and you are trying to hide it by being quick to downtalk "those other lambo boys" (but not you, oh no, you are not like THEM). You compensate with petty talk and arguments the shortcomings in other aspects of your image, trying too hard to fit in and "contribute". It's so obvious and it's disgusting.

As for my contribution, I have developed a functional Byteball casino which goes much farther than just a chat bot messenger. Not to mention that I provided the community with a C++ function for a byteball address validation and a bb2tcp proxy that let's anyone easily convert byteball connections to plaintext TCP. I guess while you've been busy talking the talk I've been busy walking the walk, as I disappeared from the slack roughly at the time I started developing the Byteball casino project (almost 2 years ago). But, you? A web site that puts your avatar inside an O-letter?! WTF? Are you making a joke here or what? You are talking about contribution and your own contribution is like a rookie level programming task completed by someone who even didn't learn software development in school but took it up by themselves as a hobby.

I never said "scaling can only come AFTER adoption", what I said was ...

Softening things up there, aren't we? You have now resorted to shifting goalposts like all losers do when they have no other options. No problem, you stupidly chose the worst position to defend, so changing your opinion now is perfectly fine. What is not fine is the fact that you don't have balls to admit your mistakes and you are trying to smoothly shift the goal post without losing face.

Slack was inferior service for Obyte because you don't understand the problems that the team had with Slack. Your solution to turn Obyte Slack into payed community is not a solution for a platform, which wants to be open for everybody, so Discord is better for that. Also, Slack was hell to moderate, Discord has better options for that because it is aimed to communities like that. Only things Discord is inferior to Slack: threaded comments and quoting.

A paid slack plan allows guest access. The platform would still be open for everybody. There was no good reason to switch away from slack and you know it. I never joined that discord and I never will. Probably best would be to fork the Byteball platform to maintain the original Tony's vision as defined in the Byteball's whitepaper  Grin. It would be good in a sense that we would also get rid of cockroaches like you, Tarmo, because clearly you have no understanding of the economic incentives that are of grave importance when it comes to scaling Byteball for the whole world. Right now, the worst thing about Byteball is the community as it's been infested by brainwashed moon lambo boys who think that cryptos are all about holding hands and doing pump-and-dumps around a socialist campfire.

Byteball could scale really well if the economic incentives were right. It requires witnesses to professionalize and invest in hardware. Right now the greatest threat to byteball is the widespread fallacy that home users need to run nodes and validate transactions. Tony was smart enough to provide the lite wallet from the beginning but the idea of professional nodes has not been emphasized enough. I have not yet lost all hope for Byteball, but recent developments are not to be proud of. For example, the Byteball Improvement Protocol initiative could flush the whole project down the toilet. Just because Blockstream Token (BTC) uses it does not mean it's a good idea. You see, a base layer of money has to be rock solid and never change so that businesses could build on it. Bitcoin Core is doing it wrong and I am hurt to see Byteball going the same direction. You don't see the IP or TCP changing once every 6 months, do you? Internet would not exist if IP had an IPIP (internet protocol improvment protocol) and self-proclaimed shitlords using it as a personal experiment for whatever wild ideas they get.

The good thing is that it is true that with proper economic incentives, hardware and software, Byteball would have no problem scaling for the whole world. Also, Tony hasn't personally said anything stupid yet, so even if the community is full of brainwashed morons such as Tarmo, as long as Tony is not listening them and drives the project to the right direction, I can keep building on Byteball.

Thanks for the good insight. I was thinking to try some of the major exchanges. Now i have got reason not engage with bitrex. Is it always that you have either a good volume or 1 btc plus withdrawal without great verification burden?

I think poloniex is legit now. They were acquired by circle you know. Haven't heard anyone complaining so far.

for the record, they finally accepted my verification documents, had to send one photo over e-mail which is a sign that they handled my case manually at last.
8  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Bittrex.com may be selling your ID verification photos to criminals on: December 25, 2018, 09:23:29 PM
I don't know if that proves they're selling the IDs but they are indeed grade-A assholes. I was told I have to do full KYC to withdraw $30 (at the time; like $7 today) and basically dared me to sue them knowing I'm not gonna bother. Unless you have money stuck there I'd give them a wide berth.

This whole thing started when they decided to disable my account without prior notice, forcing me into KYC. I've submitted the KYC photos 3 times by now. Any self-respecting anti-fraud expert would have given me a green light by now, but not them. I wonder why? They know full well that I am the person who I claim to be, yet they are trying to delay my KYC. The value of my balance at bittrex is currently ~11000$. Sort of makes me want to go through with this Tongue
9  Economy / Scam Accusations / Bittrex.com may be selling your ID verification photos to criminals on: December 25, 2018, 09:08:00 PM
I initiated an ID verification on Bittrex.

To protect myself against possible future identity theft (when Bittrex gets hacked), I wrote Bittrex.com and the current date on a transparent plastic strip and I attached the strip to my passport in a way that it does not cover anything important. I got the basic idea from here:

https://www.reddit.com/r/LifeProTips/comments/2icgq9/lpt_if_you_really_need_to_upload_an_id_scan/?st=jq0v3ovg&sh=73db4524



This way, if Bittrex.com gets hacked and customer ID photos leak into the darknet, criminals would have hard time using the photo of my passport to conduct KYC at some other service provider. Since the label is physically attached to the passport before taking the photo, I am not violating the terms which say that photo manipulation is forbidden.

On the one hand, I prove to Bittrex that I am really the person that I claim to be.
On the other hand, if Bittrex goes rogue or gets hacked, my identity will still be safe.

Great! So what's the problem?

The problem is that Bittrex insists on me removing this label even though I am not violating any rules. I have not used any photo editing tools to manipulate the photo in any way. The image is scanned in high detail, allowing experts to easily verify that both the label and the ID document are authentic. Why on earth does Bittrex insist on me removing that label then?

Unless, they are illegally selling the KYC photos of their customers to 3rd parties. And of course, a photo like mine would not make them any money.

I have used this same exact method to verify my account on other exchanges and there has been no problem with it.



EDIT 26-12-2018:

They asked me to send them another photo (me holding a paper with text bittrex, the date and also holding my government issued ID). I was able to send that photo over e-mail, which means they finally approached my case manually. After that they enabled my account (YAY!). I immediately bought BSV for all the funds I had there  and withdrew them all. Never looking back though.

Version 0.98 released today.

The front page (read tab) now always displays the last 10 messages that include a donation to cryptograffiti.info and after that normal decoding starts.

Also, the about tab now features the below art which is now released into the public domain as vector graphics.

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: CryptoGraffiti - Block Chain Message Encoder & Decoder on: July 28, 2018, 02:14:25 PM
I have successfully made the payment. However, how can I find my message in the Blockchain ?

Your block chain message is currently waiting for a miner to confirm it. However, it says "This is the first time by me 201807-28 by ..."
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: CryptoGraffiti - Block Chain Message Encoder & Decoder on: July 28, 2018, 01:48:47 PM
This is the message of the payment page:

Please send exactly 0.00008583 bitcoins to QQFSE6SLDAWF742YDCLJ2N2UWGY7PXND4CTLNPH68A (12jjJxrC1o8mWqF2upkpvmRRCAs14Sj9CV)

But the address seems wrong. the QR code is also wrong

I can see that someone has made an order 3353 on the 28th of July that requires 0.00008583 BCH to be paid to QQFSE6SLDAWF742YDCLJ2N2UWGY7PXND4CTLNPH68A (legacy address format: 12jjJxrC1o8mWqF2upkpvmRRCAs14Sj9CV).

However, no payment has been received neither on Bitcoin Cash nor on the Blockstream Token block chain.

If you are still certain that you made the payment the could you please give me the transaction identifier (hash).

EDIT:

I just received the payment you were talking about. Your order has now been filled and the respective TX is waiting for a miner to confirm it.
Here's the link: https://cryptograffiti.info/#86523

It will successfully decode your message when a mining pool such as bitcoin.com mines it.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: CryptoGraffiti - Block Chain Message Encoder & Decoder on: July 28, 2018, 10:07:37 AM
I sent bitcoin cash to address, but nothing happens. Can anyone help ?

How much did you send? What's the transaction ID/hash? To which address and when did you send? Any of these would help to identify your problem.

The Quiz bot Medium post was posted to Reddit and was instantly downvoted... if anyone here is on Reddit this post could use some upvotes. https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/87axwi/invest_a_little_time_to_learn_about_the_most/?ref=share&ref_source=link



I'm a moderator on /r/cryptocurrency and posts like this encouraging people to brigade will result in the post being removed, and in repeated cases or cases where there is implicit or explicit support from moderators of a coin's "official" channels, that cryptocurrency will be banned from the subreddit for some period of time, as has been the case for several coins recently.

I support curbing efforts to prevent coordinated brigades in upvotes on Reddit, but IMO banning me (hhugh21) in /r/cryptocurrency for my comment on that thread is a bit excessive. The above post was a commentary on the fact that coins that aren't in favour with the moonboys get instantly downvoted and never see the light of day on the /r/cryptocurrency.  So it was a call to restore the imbalance... not to exploit the upvote button. I already don't see the value in participating on that subreddit because for reasons already mentioned... so to be honest by the time it took to write this I've already gotten over the 15 day ban.

/r/cryptocurrency is a piece of shit subreddit anyway, never used it never will.




I know that the update of the Byteball wallet came out about a week ago, but I just downloaded it....

Finally! My Cinnamon not crashing!

Thanks to all contributors!

UPD. Nope, it's crashing... =(

mine is also crashing Sad it's been like this for ages.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: After corrections, Bitcoin is now ready to go to $1777! on: March 22, 2018, 08:42:55 AM
Amazing prediction! What do you mean by "the price tag of 17k is effectively a drop of honey in a pot of shit"? I believe it is overvalued and as such drops more than 50% from that but still I believe the long term growth will surpass that. Do you mean now we have other cryptos that technically pass bitcoin to have a better value than bitcoin and bitcoin will lose all its value for those other coins? or you mean actually the opposite, bitcoin is the only valuable among the shitcoins?

Would appreciate your feedback as I would regard it as very insightful after your incredibly accurate prediction!

Bitcoin Core was completely unusable as a currency at the time of that price. The price tag was the only good thing about it. Transaction fees and the Replace-By-Fee hack pretty much killed the once dear Bitcoin.

Luckily there is Bitcoin Cash, which has turned out to be the king in beggar's clothing, the real Bitcoin. And it has low transaction fees, massive merchant support and safe-to-accept 0-confirmation transactions.

However, when I wrote that prediction in 2015 I was not completely sure what the pot of shit meant. I just knew that there are other much worse things to worry about than the price. And it sure was. Bitcoin was being deliberately crippled and prepared for the transition into a centralized censorship-vulnerable bankster coin. Lightning Network is just smoke and mirrors. So yeah, I personally have changed all my segwitcoin holdings for bitcoins by now (Bitcoin Cash), but I did diversify into other asset classes at the top of the price that I had predicted Cool

@eesti.ee e-mail owner reporting in. Excellent choice, Tony! Cheesy Although Estonian government is a bunch of gangsters just as every other government, it's still good to know that we're both racketeered by the same mafia now  Grin

Perhaps the most important aspect of this update is that it demonstrates how Byteball wallet can be used for authentication in a very user-friendly way.
All you have to do is to scan the QR code given to you by the application and you will be signed in automatically.
Byteball allows account registration/verification without asking for a password or even the username.
This method is explained in detail here: https://byteballwiki.de/Dev (Byteball-to-TCP Proxy)

If you have trouble using our Bitcoin Cash format (your wallet does not support it), then you can use converter:

https://cashaddr.bitcoincash.org/

Enter our given BCH address there, click "convert" and click on "Legacy".
Now send yout BCH to that address and your EUR payment is taken care of.



Actually there's a bug in your CashAddr QR code generation logic. I also made a reddit topic for this to warn other businesses about this pitfall ( https://redd.it/83ekz0 ).

PiixPay is an excellent service because it does not require account registration and it accepts Bitcoin Cash. Also, bills get paid pretty much immediately.
