The price of VPS at DigitalOcean is $10, so at least the mining results every month must be above $10.

There are other VPS solutions apart of DigitalOcean and VULTR that offers more for less.

i.e.  Provider 1: 1 core CPU/ 20 GB SSD/ 2 GB RAM/ 30 TB Trafic/ 1 IP  @ ~3.59 EUR/month.
      Provider 2: 1 core CPU/ 20 GB SSD/ 2 GB RAM/ 20 TB Trafic/ 1 IP  @ ~2.99 EUR/month.

I don't post their names so that people won't think I promote them.
If anyone is interested just PM me and I will guide you to their websites.

FYI. Any successful translation work is of course remunerated via a LEGO Grant commensurate with the scope of the translation work.

Hello there!
Can you please be more specific? How much is paid for the translation? i.e. 0.1$ per word or 5$ per 1000 words or else. "remunerated" can be $1 for an WP, or $200, if you know what I mean..
Thanks!

DeID Summit: Decentralization, identity, and democracy with Idena and Ontology


This is looking good.
Is there any link to the post/article of this DeID Summit?
Thanks!

This project looks like a dark horse I have not seen a project like this before the nearest I can compare to this project is Nano or Fermat which is mining by invitation only, will read more of this project and see how these things work here.


Nano can't be mined and never was...

I was under the impression that the oracle voting built into the wallet was a consensus protocol. What would you consider it then? Maybe you have not used recent versions? The proof of person to verify is something completely different...

Consensus Algorithms in Blockchain

A consensus algorithm is a procedure through which all the peers of the Blockchain network reach a common agreement about the present state of the distributed ledger.

source: https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/consensus-algorithms-in-blockchain/

As far as I know Idena uses BFT (Byzantine Fault Tolerance) consensus.


The proof of person to verify is something completely different...

Agree, but this is not consensus. This is how you can join the "validators pool", not how blocks are validated/added to the blockchain (consensus).

Maybe you guys could try to get XCN listed on qTrade.io, at least you could give it a shot.

I genuinely think that Idena is much better than 99% of the coins which are being discussed in this section of the forum. It has its own and unique consensus mechanism. It has more than 5000 unique humans/minters. It has one of the most active community (this topic is being bumped all the time) considering such a small market cap. What else new coin can brag with such things?

Unique consensus? Maybe unique approach of joining the mining/minting pool. But consensus is another thing.

Indeed. I killed my identity.
So that may be an answer Smiley But still my last 6 validations from epoch 58 to 63 (from candidate up) still doesn't sum up 89.06% is 89.73%. So something is wrong.

Maybe one/few of your corret/incorrect flips had "weak consensus" or "no consensus" status? As far as I know it may affect the final node score.

BTW. There are plans to wrap IDENA on BSC (binance smart chain) and list on pancake swap (4th biggest swap with $300 mln volume, 1th biggest non-ETH swap). To pay 0.06 $ for trade instead of 60$ in network fees.

Got the answer:

Looks like the score is calculated from: right answers/total answers*100 which is 89.06. The funny thing is that if you sum up the percentages and divide them by 6 (which I did) you don't get 89.06 but instead 89.72.
Anyways good to know that only last active epoch (from the birth up counts), since is a good way to reset your score.

Good news about pancake listing. More exposure, better liquidity... and maybe a bigger price I hope. Smiley

What happened here between your 57 and 58 epoch? Why are you going from human status to Newbie? have you perhaps not passed validation here?


He would go from human to suspended. What he did is he killed his identity.
https://scan.idena.io/transaction/0x83e20cdd6ae745968d2457f65ce58a1e63a3788ab3293ac84a2211413928ce93

So now he has completely new identity with new stats. Stats from old identity does not count ... cause its dead.

Indeed. I killed my identity.
So that may be an answer Smiley But still my last 6 validations from epoch 58 to 63 (from candidate up) still doesn't sum up 89.06% is an average of 89.723%. So something is wrong.

I am not sure why you are confused here everything seems very clear to me. When checking your last validation, you had a 66.7% (4/6) or https://scan.idena.io/identity/0xb98f5b979efd32174c54c0b7d20b759e4a1e03c4/epoch/63/validation
Also one before just 80% (4/5) https://scan.idena.io/identity/0xb98f5b979efd32174c54c0b7d20b759e4a1e03c4/epoch/62/validation


True, but the total score is the average of the last 10 validations. Which is 92.167% not 89.06%
This is why I am confused.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Idena is the first Proof-of-Person Blockchain on: February 06, 2021, 08:49:50 AM
I think Identity total score is somehow rigged.  Grin Is there a bug in the calculation, or am I missing something else?

I have a total score of 89.06% but if I take my last 10 epoch and make the calculations I get:
- short session: 92.167%
- long Session: 96.521%
= average: 94.344%

I wonder how the protocol got 89.06% ?

Note: I don't complain, since I don't use the invites, and I don't care too much about 1non-spent invite reward, but maybe there are people around affected by this issue (if this is an issue).
Made some digging since it just popped into my eyes that I am not Human anymore and I am Verified.

Pool operator comment (in Idena Telegram) on your post

I would love it to be true but I don't trust this guys and this whole situation. You know me ... I'm here for more than a year supporting IDENA here on bitcointalk, fighting with every troll, teaching people, explaing why thigs are like they are. But this whole thing doesn't look real. Starting from easy fix that was implemented before validation thanks to volunteer that showed up after farm was exposed and pointed at crytical vulnerability that allows you to validate iwth 90% score (that was ment to solve the problem),

He is playing with us. Main reason why he showed up was to calm the situation so price could recover so he could abuse network even more. He didn't show up because he is good person that want to help. He would do that before his farm was exposed ... not now. He will say anything it needs to calm investors ... that this farm is 1 person 1 node, that it is better to give each person 6 flips to solve rather than run 10s algo and give 2 flips per node, that he is here to help, than it is not as serious as it looks like, that it is easy fix because he is hardly profiting. Price will recover, and he will continue to abuse network but just more carrefour, using many exchange account. We will find him after a year with 70% of network after one smart guy will find a bug that he was abusing. The purpose why abuser showed up and is now a IDENA celebrity is to calm us down. Don't trust every world he says. Don't sweep this case under the rug because this is the day of the final trial. You will make it right and network will succeed, or you will pretend that everything is right because abuser said something... and network will be destroyed in next few months. Remember. He now owns 15% of network. He doesn't need much to auto solve every validation with known flips and random shots. He just need few more epochs. He need time.

I'm just saying that this situation looks so unrealistic. So fake.

Why was he waiting for official announcement before he showed up? He wanted to know how much we know. To commit to the number of node we know about ... to prepare a scenario for himself. Thats how i see this.

I shared my thoughts about how dangerous this case may be, I'm just concerned about my loved IDENA, posting abuser comment about it does not make it less valid.

I have the same opinion.

I bet there is no farm.

Is either an exploit (since the chain is young and experimental) or an inside job.

You can't tell me, that the poor people from India or whatever, pass the validation for $2-3. If they are that poor, they can't afford to pay for the electricity, and to pass Idena validation you'll need much more. Electricity, A PC, internet.

And since the team is OK with the farm, I go for the 2nd one.

This farm thing is just bullshit, imo.

15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Idena is the first Proof-of-Person Blockchain on: December 04, 2020, 10:33:17 AM
What I don't understand about this "farmers" is: how can they pass validation as farmers but not on their own.

Anyways, if they are different individuals, I don't see anything wrong. If the farm owner managed to convince 500 people to work for him, or to give him a cut from the rewards, I see nothing wrong. Good for him, smart guy.

What I don't like is that the farm owner can dump the coins more easily than 500 unique wallets, but same is his decision to keep the coins or to dump them on the market, even though I don't like it.

Current progress :


"To make up for the delays"?

This is not a delay, is incompetence. After 5 years you can't say is a delay, let's get serious. Other projects were built from scratch and are up and kicking with all the functionalities.

You are just a bunch of incompetent devs, who did only a logo remake and a new website after 5 years.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Idena is the first Proof-of-Person Blockchain on: December 02, 2020, 07:58:58 AM
how do they determine the words that will be suggested to create new flips? it almost starts to frustrate me.
Need to create a flip story with "Convulsion, Fit, paroxysm and Cellar-Basement" words. wtf?

I'm also curious how bots handle cases like this? if someone created a bot that successfully does things like this, then he deserves a Nobel Prize.

Yeah, I agree, some pairs are impossible to make a story like Bolt & Biscuit, some words are very very strange and even with the description you can't understand what the word means like Ambition & Acquaintance

That's why since few epoch I only making 3 flips, since I don't want to get reported and loose all the rewards, even though I am Human.

In my opinion the words pair should be changed to only nouns not all the grammatical category words that exist. This is also one of the reason the flips are this bad, and you can't understand what the maker wanted to say.

Watch out for this project. It seems they want to take advantage of actual market situation (BTC at 16k $) and sell more shard coins to blind investors.

I was banned from shardax dicord because i asked unconfortable questions and showed true to people.



and here is a proof that team raised funds from presale. You can find all announcments on shard coin discord wich is was almost full deleted, fortunatley i have more screens and i will show them in case if it will be needed.



Please read thier announcments from 2018, they was looking for people to sell them coins. Unfortunately used presale funds to list shard on Cryptobridge and next cryptopia. What a shame! And almost whole 2019 and spring 2020 project was in coma.

In summer they woke up and telling stories that all will be great, promised to q4 2018 exchange will be relased soon. Woho!

Realy someone belive in this story?

Or maybe you buying thier photoshoped announcments, and upcoming listing on another beta exchange like shardax is since begining.


Neoterix pointed this some time ago, I didn't know what to think about his post:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2965061.msg54336174#msg54336174

...but now looks like everything he wrote in his post were true. Time to move on.

Thank you for the kind words guys!

Happy birthday to you. Wishing you more profits as we're approaching a better bull run this time.

Keep HODLING!

All this years I've learned to take some profits all the way up (you'll never be able to sell the absolute top, nor buy the absolute bottom).
Another thing I've learned the hard way - never sell the hole bag.

I am glad I've joined this amazing forum 4 years ago this day.

Its been a long but nice journey for me, and I managed to make a lot of friends around, to learn a lot of things and perfect my English around the space (even tho is not perfect yet).

I hope I can stay around for years to come and enjoy this beautiful world of crypto each and every day.

Thanks you bitcointalk for ...well everything!

Love you all... almost all!

... and Happy Birthday to me!
