There are other projects with similar initiatives (eg STEEM, LBRY), but exposing the HTTP backend like this seems to allow for many more use cases other than blog/video content. E-commerce stores would probably be trivial to build. More interesting would be services (web hosting, cloud storage, advertising, even renting/leasing). But the right front ends need to be built.

V530 is interesting. As a matter of course, reading a project's release notes is recommended. Especially in this case, as the release notes are (actually) well written.

To run a Micropay server, follow the same installation instructions as the Nyzo verifier, using the nyzoMicropayServer.conf file in place of the nyzoVerifier.conf file. Also, be sure to include some web content and specify the web root as micropay_data_root in /var/lib/nyzo/production/preferences. Content for an example Micropay site is available on Github.

The Micropay server uses the private key specified in /var/lib/nyzo/production/verifier_private_seed as the recipient of all Micropay transactions. Be sure that this is an existing account, as new accounts are unable to receive small transactions due to balance-list spam protections.

The Micropay client follows the same build process as all other run modes. It does not require the trusted_entry_points file. It does require specification of micropay_sender_key and micropay_max_amount_nyzos in /var/lib/nyzo/production/verifier_private_seed. The entry point for the client is co.nyzo.verifier.micropay.MicropayClient. Micropay clients for mobile systems are currently under consideration for development.

Configuration of the new Micropay functionality is seen below:

Additional details of the code changes are in the above release note.

A sample Micropay website is shown below:

Hey there,

Cool project. Left a PM.

Recently Bismuth, the cryptocurrency, launched the 3D Boulevard, a virtual representation of a cryptocurrency rich list in a WebGL world with an avatar. It's simple, but cool to play around with.

What is the potential of using VR/AR to make cryptocurrency accessible to an entirely new crowd?

Very interested in Bismuth.  Is it best to wait for it to be added to exchanged or is it still worth trying to mine?  Any guesses on the first exchange it might be added too?

Join slack and search #exchanges. To summarize, both Bittrex and Cryptopia have contacted the dev requesting additional methods to be implemented.

Hey guys,

Having issues syncing after removing VPN. Network blocks that im behind are actually increasing once i try to sync. How can i start the syncing again from the begining?

Try this up to date, place in bismuth folder/static:!tdJkER6Q!Z9wBdNVXmQv0LXRft722s2JBXDh20YPsl_RxFwxOivs

I have exactly the same problem. Thanks for the link, but I wonder if this synchronisation issue is being addressed?

Healthy blockchain should be easy to sync without snapshots. Right now, it looks like snapshots of the ledger are the only way to sync this. Without them, the chain keeps going back and forward, gets some blocks, then rewinds back. I though that is just my node, but it seems to be a common issue.

Isn't this a serious issue to address?

P.S. One additional small question: what is the right way to do a backup? Is making a copy of "privkey.der" enough, or other files may be needed too?

To my understanding, this is what the hard fork for 3.9 is trying to accomplish. Remember Bismuth is an *experimental* Python blockchain.

Backing up privkey.der is enough, but might as well back up pubkey.der to save a step of having to regenerate it.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][ENT] Eternity - X11 - No Premine on: July 19, 2017, 12:29:24 AM

any guide/script for masternode setup on vps maybe mutliple nodes with ipv6?

btw link on op to website shows 404 page not found error:

not very trustworthy for new people  Wink
Not exactly the most active dev team out there. Well, not active since may or so XD

I tried to make a IPv6 multiple installation with the help of mersmsxn (sorry, I know I always write horribly wrong your nick  Cry ) but there is something inherently wrong with the wallet which avoid us of getting it.


I had success with the following conf settings (relevant parts bolded):

listen = 1
rpcport = (something)
daemon = 1
server = 1
gen = 0
discover = 1
eternitynode = 1
externalip = [ipv6]:4855
eternitynodeaddr = [ipv6]:4855
bind = 127.0.0.x
bind = [ipv6]

eternitynodeprivkey = xxx

bind should be the ipv6 address AND a loopback (, different for each instance). This means you can have no more than 255 instances running on a single server, though I doubt that will be a problem. Also each node should have a different rpcport just in case. Each instance should also run on a separate user account.

The local conf file should include [ipv6]:4855 as the bind address.

If that doesn't work, check to make sure that the ipv6 addresses are actually bound (ifconfig). Many hosts offer ipv6 but activate it only by manual request.

Both pools are paying out now. Throwing some hashpower on both.

Watching Smiley

Some initial questions:

1. You mention that tokens are used by individuals who want to list, and provided to "verified users". What determines the magnitude of token payouts? What constitutes a verified user in this process - the entire user pool?
2. What measures are taken to confirm that said listings are genuine? This seems initially like a decentralized method of enforcement, but unsure how well this will work at the very early stages.
3. Are there specific real estate MLS markets that you are looking to target initially? Consideration obviously has to be made re. legal barriers, existing supply/demand dynamics of said marketplaces, etc.
4. You mentioned the barriers to tokenized ownership especially in most US/Western markets. Building on above, what markets have you identified that might be more amenable to tokenized ownership / "colored coins" models?

Thanks in advance. Regardless, at least something different.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: ANN [PTY] Patientory Healthcare on the Blockchain on: April 25, 2017, 04:35:28 PM
Thanks for sharing. The concept is certainly innovative. However as a medical professional, I had some questions:

  • Why does your project need a blockchain structure as opposed to a centralized database (per HealthVault, Epic, etc)? The product that you showed is obviously a thin client, so are full clients storage nodes?
  • The structure seems akin to projects such as SiaCoin and Storj, but with a medical twist. How does such data (even encrypted) maintain HIPAA compliance across state and possibly national borders? Do you consider your project a HIPAA-compliant cloud?
  • How do you see the storage utilization of your nodes compared to the two above projects? (this gets back to the "Why blockchain" question.)
  • Why did you select Ethereum for your blockchain of choice for token issuances?
  • Do you plan to engage the traditional EHR providers such as Epic to facilitate the initial data preload as well as extensions for utilizing your blockchain/database? If not, how do you expect to get patient data onto the network? From doctors/nurses? Patients? etc

Apologies if some of these are addressed through the whitepaper; haven't had the time to thoroughly peruse it yet. Your responses greatly appreciated.

There is one thing though that is stunting bitcoin's growth in online shopping (where it's most likely to make an impact first): credit card rebates. Virtually all credit cards people use nowadays offer some sort of point/cashback system, which is, of course, paid from the retailer's pocket in terms of outrageous fees. It should be in every retailer's best interest to offer significant incentives to use bitcoin, in terms of fee savings: even something crazy as 5% cash back on all purchases, forever when paid in BTC would probably result in net savings for most retailers. Other creative things: free giftcards (instead of cashback) for even more retailer margin, drawing for cool and awesome items when bill is paid with BTC, etc etc.

Two-factor (BIP38) paper wallets. Simple(ish) passphrase.
The point is that we're pretty good at physical security (because it's what we had for thousands of years), and the likely attack vectors to nab your paper wallet and your passphrase are most likely very different.
