1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] æternity blockchain ∞ AE TOKEN ∞ [PoW & PoS | Oracles | Smart Contracts] on: June 19, 2021, 09:17:31 PM
The verified scammer zahl wrote that æternity collected 235.000 ETH and 11.000 BTC? Where did this number come from? This is the correct number https://blog.aeternity.com/contribution-phase-one-overview-faq-89c89cc19cc6

As you know, aeternity suffered a parity wallet error 1 (written by the CTO of ethereum gavin wood), and it lost almost all of its ETH of the second phase of the token sale.

They still managed to survive and established super reliable technology.
Check out their youtube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEsM0b7QPazeMR80DxNkzCA) and their github (https://github.com/aeternity). You can see a steady stream of videos and code submitted to many projects, not even community projects.

Compared to projects that raised billions of dollars in 2017 (EOS, cardano, tezos, etc.), æternity blockchain technology is far superior.

They also did not run out of resources, because they seem to be hiring a lot of positions https://angel.co/company/aeternity-blockchain/jobs

BRI is determined by community voting, and more than 3/4 of the voting accounts vote for BRI to support the foundation. You can view the grants provided to the community here https://forum.aeternity.com/c/li-foundation/grant/81

Guys, please help. How to get rid of the proven liar zahl? He kept lying and tries to destroy one of the most reliable projects in the cryptosphere. He cannot be allowed to do this. Constantly misleading bitcointalk users with wrong information, isn't this a violation of community guidelines? It seems that there are some personal problems between Zahl and aeternity founders, because he constantly attacks them on a personal level. No wonder he will be banned by the aeternity Forum.

Zahl, please prove me wrong. Otherwise please stop repeating your bs over and over.

Zahl launched the Etercoin scam in 2014, conducted an "IPO", and then abandoned the project.
This is proof: https://imgur.com/a/nflXRja Shocked
Check out his first post on bitcointalk and check out https://github.com/etercoin/etercoin he only has 2 commits. Later he wanted to scam to the users here.

He is just a paid troll of a scam army. Or he was fired by the founders and is now trying to attack them.

To prove that zahl was further wrong:
-The æternity blockchain still has a lot of funds in BTC and ETH, and the developers are still working.
-æternity Development Company is a project located in Liechtenstein, not a Bulgarian project. https://www.forbes.com/sites/oliversmith/2018/03/07/why-blockchain-is-booming-in-liechtenstein-the-sixth-smallest-country-in-the-world/?sh=4d9649973564
-The development team is mainly Swedish. They hired Ulf Norell (inventor of Agda), Thomas Arts (Professor of Gothenburg), Erik Steman (former CTO of Klarna) and other world-class engineers with programming language design and virtual machine experience to develop the æternity blockchain.
http://www.quviq.com/contact-2/about/ (check their profile, they are still involved! Such people will never participate in scam projects!)
https://happihacking.com/about.html
-Mining inflation is very similar to Ethereum. There is not much difference.

To summarize: we have a proven anonymous scammer. On the other side are the godfather of Ethereum and world-class programming talents.

so much FUD in this thread. I can understand why newby zahl got banned from the aeternity forum with the way how he talks. he is either getting paid for spreading FUD or he spreads FUD on purpose to buy AE cheap. he also has no AE tokens, otherwise he would have started a governance vote on changing the parameters he thinks are wrong. while it is ok to have a personal opinion, one can not assume that all the community has the same opinion. therefore the governance app exists so that real AE token users can vote in a tamperproof way on the blockchain.

for me aeternity seems one of the best blockchains out there. no other blockchain has such a big talent base: four people who have created programming languages where involved (Erlang, Haskell, Skala, Agda) in the creation of Sophia and the FATE virtual machine. they really seem to know what they do with blockchain tech. another blockchain project where a programming language founder was involved is the Brave project. but clearly JS was a terrible langauge at the beginning and brave is rather a web2.0 joke than a real blockchain project, like aeternity.

zahl says that there is no privacy with the aeternity voting app because your IP can leak. people who are privacy concered should use TOR or self-host their infrastructure. aeternity software is fully decentralized and can be run by anyone and anywhere.

zahl also says that the BRI was a money-grab while it is a way to keep the independent foundation running to fund more core development. many updates have been posted by the foundation in the past. the BRI itself was over 75% approved by the aeternity users. the vote was fully transparent and verifiable by everyone. the large accounts of the aeternity founders (or foundation?) did not vote.

rumors say that the aeternity team is launching a new censorship-free social network very soon. this is going to be big.

@ BEFAIR - thank you for your awareness! You made some very valid points. All this is not finalized yet and Irfan will need to get a chance to rework the results according to the rules. We can have some additional bounty for people (like you) who find mistakes or inconsistencies of the spreadsheets. All is public here so that many eyes can look at this. Thanks again.

So for 1 Ether we will get 1100 (1000+100 Bonus) AE tokens in the first 24h. But what if someone like to buy AE tokens with Bitcoins only? You mention on your website "Fund the wallet with ETH (or view alternatives for contributions with other currencies, such as BTC or fiat)." Will funding the wallet with Bitcoins be similar like funding it with ETH? How many AE tokens+bonus do we get for 1 BTC then?
I am wondering the same, Aeternity is not an Ethereum dapp, why accepting ETH by default for the crowdsale? For the sake of token issuance?
We are working on also accepting BTC directly over the Bitcoin blockchain.

Phase 1 — Public “Friends, Family and Real Innovators” Round
Starting on April 3rd, 13:05 GMT and lasting for 3 days [72 hours] until April 6th, 13:05 GMT. During this period, 1 ETH contribution will receive 1000 AE tokens. Anyone can participate!
Launch bonus for phase one: 100 (hundred) AE bonus per 1 ETH send in the first 24h!

1. I am confusing about the blog, so it means we can get 1100(1000+100 bonus) AE tokens in the first 24h, right?

INCUBATION PHASE
There will be 45 days in between phase 1 and phase 2.

SECOND CONTRIBUTION PHASE — EVOLUTION
FOR EARLY ADOPTERS
Start time: 45 days after the completion of phase 1 (target date).
Duration: 3 weeks.

2. so Phase 2 will happen in middle of June, and will end in end of July. So it means the signature and social media campaign will run until July? People need to post 10 per week from now to end of July just hunt for 350000 AE?? Too few. I wanted to join, but I found it is too low according to the new rule.

I have the same doubt, I care about the campaign still ends on April, like stated in the doc below, or they will extend the campaign to July.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1V6x99z5yJ1uBhDEpl2LoEicZl5JWQM-Q96tWun6dBhA/edit?usp=sharing
Guys, we can increase the bounty for the longer duration. Will be fair. Originally we had aimed for a 6 weeks campaign.

Hello everyone!

Such a long discussion here and I was only gone a few hours! Smiley

Ignore the trolls, the spreadsheet has nothing to do with us. But I have something that does.

We now have æternity's contribution campaign details!

I am looking forward to the avalanche of questions Smiley

Regards,
Vlad

My only concern with the amounts in the contribution campaign details is the current high value of ETH.

The first round of contributors gets 1000 AE tokens for 1 ETH which seems fine given the total amount of AE is based on the number of contributions so the ratio here doesn't really matter.  But since the second round gets a similar amount (800 AE tokens for 1 ETH) it is going to be kinda crappy if the value of ETH plummets in that span of time.
The first phase (round) starts with 1000 AE + 100 AE launchbonus (first 24h). If the award for early birds is too high, then less people will like to have tokens in phase 2. Hard to make it perfect for everybody. We want to make it simple and transparent though and this is why we chose this model.

I actually wish you had just set the value of each AE token on USD given the current bubble we are in with alts and potentially even bitcoin over the next 60 to 120 days.
We are not dealing with USD at all. In crypto we have quite often bubbles, too. But is it a bubble, or is it not? The time will never be perfect. People are excited about crypto, thats important!

Another concern is that the campaign is a long one with no cap, if I contribute a significant amount in the first 24 hours I could be screwed over by the campaign becoming very successful in round 2 and the total % of AE I get could be much smaller than I originally thought it would be.
I don't believe this is an issue, but instead exactly what everybody should want. To grow the size of the network (people with AE) to as high as possible. With capped tokensales only a few whales profit and the public pays. Somewhere I read today that Melonport had only 150 contributors. This is not good. Let's keep it transparent and simple, with a fair chance for everybody to participate in the construction of the new æternity blockchain.
You mentioned the 800 AE per 1 ETH could be less in this post, can you describe what would cause a lesser evaluation in round 2? Would a drop in ETH's price compared to USD do it or maybe a significantly more popular campaign in the first day than expected (so more funds raised than anticipated in round 1)?

Thanks and keep up the good work, really looking forward to this project.
Thanks, too! And yes, this was one consideration of us.


Please ask Zack about the oracle, ideally in gitter. He knows it best.

Hi AEternity Team!

In your whitepaper you state that you changed your mind about 100% PoS blockchain, although it was in your plans initially. I wasn't able to find explanation about your reasoning on the matter. Can you please elaborate on this ? It seems Vitalik still believes in PoS and there are already some attempts to launch 100% PoS blockhains. Why do you think that a "decentralized 100% PoS" is impossible ?

Best Regards!

Correct, a pure signature scheme, like 100% PoS without PoW can't be secure in a decentralized environment, this means without any hardcoded checkpoints or authorities to connect to, especially for new users. PoS was suggested as a way to secure a blockchain without mining. In PoS, if somebody is able to collect more then the necessary majority of the 'staking keys' (probably <50%) of any point in the past, after the tokens got sold, he/she will be able to create an alternative version of the blockchain, which seems more 'fit'. In comparison to PoW where remining the whole blockchain from the change would be required, with PoS this would not cost much, as it requires just signing. In æternity PoS is additional to PoW and helps with the governance, via revealing information from the crowd.

So what the problem? Are there any explanation from æternity team??

Somebody edited the editable old sheet - no real hack. Following is the new one:

Guys, we thought of doing uncapped, but 3 days only for the first phase of the contribution campaign. This is in order to have more network effects among the users and not to have just a few big ones. Let us know what you think. We are here to discuss a nice, pleasant campaign with you.

3 days for first phase? So you mean the bonus phase, right?
Exactly.

Would like to get feedback from you guys. Here is the link from the contribution campaign ANN:
https://blog.aeternity.com/security-transparency-simplicity-1411fad10974

Originally we thought of doing one longer lasting 'token sale'. To not have a 'cap' was the plan from the beginning. 'Selling out' in 2 minutes, is not a good idea for starting an ecosystem. As many people as possible should be involved from the beginning on. Here is your opportunity to support the development of æternity blockchain.

2018 launched the main network, that time the ether may have solved their problems.
It has been proven that blockchains can not be changed easily, as they are made to be resilient. Hope you are not waiting to see that Bitcoin's blocksize will be increased, or are you? This is very unlikely. Every hardfork is super dangerous, because you can easily end up with 42 million Bitcoins (A+B), instead of 21m. So let us do it right. We will be quicker then Ethereum's development. We already have a Testnet which works. And no other blockchain so far can scale.

Interesting, is it unique POW algo on mainnet?
We will (most likely) be using Tromp's Cuckoo Cycle, which makes it possible to mine on a smart phone. Decentralization++;

so you guys are build on top of the ethereum eth network? or your own blockchain?

FAQ doesn't work
æternity is a new blockchain for scalable smart contracts interfacing with real-world data. Scalability is achieved via turing-complete state channels, which got invented by Zack Hess, our technical lead. The real-world data interface is achieved via featuring a build in decentralized oracle, which gets checked by the consensus. Sidenote: æternity can do cross-chain atomic swaps with the Ethereum network and it can also access any data from Ethereum via the oracle.

FAQ link got fixed. FAQ is on our blog and it went a bit under. FAQ: https://blog.aeternity.com/æternity-frequently-asked-questions-faq-9cb0e34e0740

Algo....?
Algo in Testnet currently is boring SHA256 as a placeholder. Will probably use some version of Tromp's Cuckoo Cycle a little later: https://github.com/tromp/cuckoo later on. Purpose of the testnet is to show how turing complete value transfer in state channel works. Next step is to implement the oracle and a few æpps.

Shouldn't the ICO be delayed until beginning of 2018 so investors don't have to wait so long to trade on exchanges? I'm a little nervous to put my BTC in this for 1 year without trading. That's a lot of risk we have to carry. I really want to invest but it's just this that bothers me.

Rest assured, there will be no freezing of your money for a long time, it is a token on the Ethereum blockchain.
Can any dev confirm this?
Totally confirmed. Tokens are instantly tradable, you will not even need to wait till the end of the campaign. Pretty cool, hu? Smiley
