I've got an interesting link:

http://www.meetup.com/bitcoin-il/events/227289840/

Quote
Bitcoin and other blockchain-based crypto-currencies do not easily scale to process a high throughput of transactions, or to quickly approve individual transactions. When block creation rates and block sizes are accelerated, networking delays cause many conflicts to occur and the security of the protocol quickly degrades.

We present a new "chainless'' protocol for the consensus core of crypto-currencies that remains secure even when delays are substantial. During the talk, we will present various attacks and naive attempts to solve them that slowly develop and lead to our current approach.
Much like IOTA.

What's the exact name for this chainless protocol, dag?

The comment section has a link to the video of the event. The lecture is in Hebrew though : https://youtu.be/xbEaNSIv00U

But the slides are in English:  http://bitcoil.co.il/files/Bitcoin_meetup_Chainless.pptx

I also noticed that appending 9 at the end of a string generates the same address as the string itself.

isn't that kind of clear, if its considered as a zero/null value? if you prepend it, its not the same, but if you append it is

Ah..I see. I don't quite get any of this. Just posted something I noticed.

I wanted to get a rough Idea of what my share is so i made this:

http://en.file-upload.net/download-11146679/iota_table.ods.html

by no means accurate, dosnt include confirmation amounts and some accounts appear multiple times because the sent multiple times( maybe even in different phases).

It should be accurate enough to give you an idea of general distribution and roughly how big your share is.

Dont take this for real, whatever the IOTA team says is true.


Nice! I just consolidated duplicates and sorted in descending order of iotas owned here: http://pastebin.com/XrUieiJq

"9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99" seed gives the same address, it's another proof of exclusive status of "9". Smiley

Leaving the seed field empty and simply clicking ok also seems to generate that address. I also noticed that appending 9 at the end of a string generates the same address as the string itself.

Then I guess anewafresh will get his early adopter bonus  Grin
Congrats  Smiley

Thanks! Just came in to take a look at what's happening at the thread and this is a very pleasant surprise. Smiley

True..but transaction logs of blockchain.info cant be spoofed, isn't it? I'm willing to share my blockchain.info login credentials with you to prove the transaction time. Would that work?

This won't work because you can't provide the credentials to someone who will question bonuses in 2 years.

I guess that's only fair. I'll just have to swallow the loss.

Can the devs please clear this out for me?

We can rely only on the timestamp of a block that included a transaction, otherwise if in the future some questions arise (like why Alice got 15% bonus but Bob got no bonus at all) the community will be unable to come to the same answer. It's common knowledge that Bitcoin miners do timestamping, the precision of this process is not very good, but there is no a better alternative.

Yes, cause you set a very low fee as 0.0001 and not 0.0005 your transaction confirmed later and you lost "early adopter" bonus.
The good news is that IOTA will not have such a "fees" at all.

Ah..I see..thanks a lot for the reply. I set it as 0.0001 as that is the standard fees that the QT core client use. Guess I should have set it higher.

Also, I understand using the block times for bonus calculation as the transaction time can be faked. But since I used the blockchain.info wallet (how can I prove this?) and transaction time cannot be faked while using the online wallet, I'm still hopeful the devs and the community (Iotians?) might consider my case and deem my transaction to be within the early adopter phase.  Smiley

And IOTA not having fees is pretty exciting. Cant wait to see how all of this pans out.

I made the following transaction which shows the received time to be "2015-12-12 13:21:47" but the transaction confirmation happened later and block time seems to be  "2015-12-12 17:20:34 + 239 minutes".

https://blockchain.info/tx/afb79542c57d4fdca044945a0e32c970725600c0e36609df061e31fde8fd2274

Does this mean my transaction will not fall into the "early adopter" phase which ended on 2PM of the 12th?

I hope that is not the case since I made the transaction using the blockchain.info wallet where (I assume) the transaction time cannot be faked.
