Maybe it's worth (possible) it to realize with Obyte - to stabilize the bytes and bind excess liquidity..

I just read some articles about Atomic Swaps (BTC / LTC / XMR). Is it basically possible to realize atomic swaps between DAG and classic blockchain? Would the realization be a worthwhile goal?

Byteball World Community Grid team update:


I'm in  Smiley.
Nice to see a new asset (the 4th) on my wallet.
I like this kind of distribution - this has practical relevance, invites you to play and demonstrates the capabilities of Byteball. Well done  Smiley

Today is a big day for blackbytes: now they can be sent to anyone, even if they are not in Byteball yet, no pairing required.

https://medium.com/byteball/private-textcoins-6a2288d80757
..

Great update tony.
Blackbytes are a wonderful and elegant solution for privacy and anonymity.
The solution is lightweight and flexible. Too bad that the adoption is progressing so slowly.
In principle, I would not mind staying under the radar, but the liquidity is so low.
Market capitalization is still ridiculous (currently around 12.3 million).
I hope the regulatory pressure leads to greater use. Anyway - very good work - thanks! Smiley

Today, we are launching a Telegram bot that allows to pass a small quiz and get a $5.00 worth reward in Bytes.  It is paid from the undistributed funds.

Telegram bot: @ByteballQuizBot
Nice idea for an unobtrusive advertising that appeals to interested people.
Also there is something to learn and the usability of Byteball is well presented - well done! Smiley

Just finished a small airdrop for new users who linked their BTC address for the cancelled March airdrop.
Total 2022 users.
72 MB to each user.
Total distributed amount: 145.584 GB.

They received this text from the retired transition bot:

Quote
As you perhaps already know, the March airdrop was cancelled since balance-based airdrops stopped bringing more value as they used to do. Other formats of airdrop will be exercised later in the process.
Additionally, we are shifting our focus to product and business development.

We understand that some of users spent money to link a BTC address for this airdrop, and while the airdrop was clearly indicated as tentative, we still want you to be a user of Byteball platform, and to allow you to experience its features, we are sending you 72,000,000 Bytes (worth about $30).


I do not profit from it but that's really a nice touch  Smiley- well done (The sudden end was a bit abrupt  Wink)

Very good job! By the way, the table which compares performance of different blockchains is wrong in your article. Graphene, on top of which steem is built, is able to handle thousands of tps, and at least several other blockchains too (https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@cyberblock/top-9-market-cap-blockchains-ranked-in-order-by-transaction-speed-lets-see-where-steem-fits-in). Also, graphene transactions are confirmed in few seconds. This makes byteball to look very poor in comparison.   Performance and scalability of byteball should definitely be addressed.


I am ready to amend my article but I would like others third party figures. Can others guys can make comment about effective tps on *LIVE WORKING* networks. Thx.
Also the article is open for comments on Medium.
THX, excellent work should be rewarded  Smiley  - peering code for donation needed..

I also wrote a tutorial for the ID attestation: https://steemit.com/byteball/@wekkel/byteball-unleash-the-wave
Thanks, good job and very helpful.
The whole process is very simple. I would add a wait to this dialogue: "Received your payment of x.xx GB, waiting for confirmation (about 5 minutes)"
People today are no longer used to waiting in dialogue with devices without Feedback.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: January 20, 2018, 11:08:06 AM
Brilliant! But I would change it slightly for more convenience and program logic where no UniqueID is required (why reveal privacy to somebody who doesn't need it!):
  • Person B starts the verification process. At some point the bot asks whether he wants to pay it from his funds or ask somebody else to pay for him. Person B has the option to enter somebody else's address (of person A, old user). If the address is not single address wallet, the user gets info, it's not possible and can enter another address. Possibly he could enter a list of addresses he would like to offer the deal to.
  • Person A gets notified in the client to pay the fee on behalf of person B and is offered to verify with Jumio if he hasn't yet.
  • Person A makes the payment (which makes him the referrer), with the guarantee the $8 are being used to pay Jumio if he is verified himself. He can still do it without verification just to help others.
  • Person B gets the verification link and finishes the process

This way you can post your verified address publicly and invite people to earn money, or send a mailing and describe the deal... and the snowball effect starts! EASY! This would give a true PayPal effect...


Then people could set up self-perpetuating funds (like on this forum, a fb group, reddit, wherever) and it would be a VERY ATTRACTIVE model also for the exchanges to use this to generate more revenue... And the price of Byteball would grow accordingly, so it could turn into a never ending story...

BTW: there should be also a way to generate deeplinks into the bot (Google Fire) with your address as referal to automate this process and just send people invitation links, and then the bot recognizes it and makes it for people really easy without asking any questions about payment. Just informing people: "The fee of $8 will be paid by your referer... Say thanx to him" Smiley
The link that you as old user would post would look like: http://byteballwallet.hdgll.heiwe/verify/ref/0ASe.....E3 or whatever your byteball addrress.

Then, also download/installation referer links could be offered to install the byteball wallet:
http://install.byteball.org/install/ref/0ASe.....E3 or whatever your byteball addrress
This would install a wallet with referrer set as your address.
When then the user wants to later verify, you will be offered to pay for verification (but the user will have also the choice to pay himself or ask somebody else to pay for him).

You could send out these links out of your wallet automatically like you do with textcoins.
This would be a REALLY EASY no brainer tool for newbies to help grow the community and earn money doing it.
Everybody could do it! No skills required. "Invite your friends to Byteball and earn money"

Byteball user base would explode in size with this tool. And Byteball would become for many the first crypto to get in touch with. Then, when they try other cryptos with their shitty interfaces and slow payments, high fees, they would bring the good experience they made with Byteball into consciousness of the mainstream...

Tony! What do you think?

I am not tony, but would like to attach my thoughts anyway. Basically, I think the proposal is not bad, always interesting to read new ideas.
However, we have to be careful that a "mass advertising" can pollute the "Byteball" or "Bytes" brand (keyword "SpamCoin").
Between fair distributed (Airdrop) and SpamCoin is only a fine line.
Thats why most ICO's perform such actions only together with buybacks (i.a. wcex etc.).
Otherwise there are very negative effects on the perception of the value.

I think Tony is not interested in growth at any price - it's not about creating the fastest growing bubble.
Like the (early) BTC, Byteball is not a coin driven primarily by advertising.

However, I realize that there is a (potentially large) market / need for such applications.
And Byteball should show that it also has efficient solutions in the context of advertising.
In this environment, however, I would advise to use more Blackbytes.
Blackbytes are not as liquid as bytes. The receiver must have bytes to use the black bytes.
Superficially, this is a disadvantage for use in this context.
But it has many positive effects: dumping is not so easy, it is a minimum of know-how necessary ->
The receiver must deal with Byteball (Wallet / Byte / Botstore), so he makes a kind of PoW (POW = value).

In sum, one can achieve such a positive effect without having negative effects on the advertised coin (i.a. Bytes, TC etc.),
at the same time BlackBytes become more popular

Where can I find the new distribution method?
Is it out?
I can't find it in the Tony's posts.

It looks like the new one will distribute the left byte via email/textcoin?
What about the Gbyte holders?
https://byteball.org/ -> conditions and timer for next Distribution

The classical distribution to Byte and BTC holder will slowly fade out:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.msg24965637#msg24965637

The focus is shifting towards focus marketing / sponsoring:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.msg28047149#msg28047149

Textcoin will surely be an important tool for transporting Byteball into the real world.

An update about our upcoming promotional activities.

Simple beautiful this news! Wink
Textcoin is a very powerful tool. This will greatly help Byteball and future ICOs to enter the real world.
Keep it up   Smiley

Telegram (Pawel Durow) plans own ICO and currency?byteball team new project? Can you give me a telegram link?

I would like to see the link as well, this is interesting information for me and i would glad to read more about this
My posting was apparently misunderstood.
Rumors circulate about Telegram launching its own cryptocurrency. (You may google it.)
I just reflected this rumor in my post. There is no relationship known to me with Byteball!
I just reflected that there is not enough collaboration in the business.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: December 23, 2017, 11:59:34 AM
I just read, Telegram (Pawel Durow) plans own ICO and currency. Huh
I wonder why everyone try to cook his own soup. That's pointless - weak lone fighters (like Rambo) only win in movies.

Why they not use byteball? (fair distribution, well-established on the market, great backing in the community, first-class technical potential, proven,
flexible, scalable like hell) and telegram with tons of users (or Yandex still in the boat). This is a clear WIN - WIN situation.

Collaboration and strategic partnerships seem to be a no-go in this business - everybody trys to create his own Supercoin.
In the end, the established system wins and the youngsters will scalped by the established big players (i.a. PayPal).

Something new and powerful emerges, when many cooperate, then the whole is suddenly more than its constituent parts (like the Internet, like every living thing).
Imagine that every dotcom company had tried to develop its proprietary protocol - crazy.

Possibly everything has to be burned down first, so that the wheat is separated from the chaff .. Cool

2018 will be the year of DAG coins
True, from my point of view, there is no alternative (or hype will end next year).

If Distributed Ledger Technology ever wants to live up to their expectations, then the DAG is the next candidate.
The BTC Mempool is chock full of stuck transactions, and Crypto Kitties makes Eth sweat.
Not a very convincing performance for a technology that wants to put the established Players to flight.
(Realistically, there is absolutely no chance to meet the future requirements in a timely manner and thus no chance for mass adoption.)
If the history of information technology teaches us something:
*you never have enough memory
*you never have enough computing power
*you can never have enough IP address range
Every forecast requirement has always been beaten by reality.

From my point of view, there will be five topics next year: scalability, scalability, scalability, (energy) efficiency, flexible usability.
