Thanks for a lengthy explanation.

Now this coin is about universal basic income? Not good.

With the completion of the allmine cryptoshell for the Bittware CVP-13 we will be getting back into bitstream development. We have 3 designs that will be released shortly from community developers, but their profitability is nothing amazing. We will start putting together our Phi2 design which will hopefully be released in the next 1-2 weeks. There is more to come, but I don't want to say what at this time.

Most of the developers don't have a lot of base code to work from. We've offered to open up our code base to them if they'd release through the shell as well as provide BCU-1525 units for completion of designs. Unfortunately, that still hasn't attracted a lot of developer attention. Many of those claiming to be fpga developers on discord have disappeared  Roll Eyes.

Why are people buying these cards? Aren't the only ones who make money the ones who develop their own bitstreams? Feels like eating very expensive leftovers.

Here's a question for you..

There are about 5000 BCU-1525 in the wild, 1000 CVP-13s coming, 500-1000 VCU-1525, BTU9Ps, various clones, etc out there.

How many units would a developer need to own themselves for it to provide the same revenue as a 5% fee from the units that are already out there (which would additionally require no up front capital investment from the developer)? Answer: about 400... Which would cost them > $1.5M.

So, they can make a $1.5M investment and have the same revenue as not making ANY investment but just releasing their code. What would you do? I'm quite sure only an insane person would spend $1.5M to make the same amount of money as not spending $1.5M.



What about private bitstreams? Wouldn't it be more profitable to just release the code?

Interesting coin with a different approach. I will throw a rig on it. Good luck!

mother of all trainwrecks  Grin

Remember, it's not like that it didn't wreck before. See the graph:



The right timing of the release of Hush-NG can actually make Hush reach new heights.

yeah rite
% to ATH (42 678.50%)
so only 42.6k% to break ath lol



thats like discussing career options for a ded hooker in the streets



LMFAO  Grin

So a bit of a status update on development, and that is that we are jumping straight to v0.2.0 in the roadmap and skipping 0.1.0 altogether.

What has been achieved:

1. Blockchain size and speed reduced and increased significantly.
2. Nodes will now be active for all functions, wallets and miners will connect to those local nodes and any changes to the blockchain will be broadcast to all connected nodes.
3. All nodes attempt to create and hash the blocks themselves but until 0.3.0 they will double check with the seed nodes that they have the correct data.  Nodes which are not accessible from the outside world will always far and will always download block data from the swarm.
4. Generation of PoW is performed serially, so cannot be optimised with more cores/GPUs.
5. Data synchronisation is optimised to flow as fast as possible even if the nodes are underpowered, this will mean that regardless of state/stage transactions should remain atomic as all transactions are sequentially numbered and replayed.
6. Swapped to 1 min blocks to reduce the impact of a block being hashed and the time it takes.
7. Target inclusion is +30 blocks to give the network plenty of time to sync.
8. Difficulty is now super hard to reduce registration impact on the service.

What is outstanding before general release:

1. Memory leak in the sync mechanism needs resolving.
2. Transaction size when performing a transfer can become painfully huge, which is a basic design compromise of this system.  This may not be resolved before release but will need to be looked into.
3. Windows wallet needs to be updated to use the new mechanism.
4. A public node will need to be made available for those unable to run Ubuntu 16/18.
5. Produce binaries for download of the wallet & miner.
6. Decide if the seed node will publish block data to a standard web server to be served up for wallets.  This will avoid people having to run a node just to populate their wallet.  Obviously this isnít very de-centralised, but will offload one of the biggest

I have been struggling for time over the past few weeks, but just a few little niggles remain in the little bits of dev outstanding.  Chief of which is the denominations system, which although solving some problems, causes others.

If we were to fix all tokens at `0.01` VELD, then to transfer 100 VELD to another wallet would require 10,000 new entries in the blockchain to be created.  Which is quite heavy handed.  Whereas if they are mixed, that transaction on average would be around 3,000 entries which is much better.

But you could also be left with a wallet full of 50.00 VELD tokens, so would be unable to transfer say 20.00 VELD to anyone.

So in that respect, the network also has to in the future (if this even becomes and issue) include some kind of ďchangeĒ system/service which will be funded from the network fee collection pot.

But for the initial version itís just something that needs to be worked around and the community members will just have to offer that service or, indeed I will if I can.

Iím looking forward to the release, if only so I donít have to keep restarting the current service every couple of hours.




I stopped mining this a while ago. Will old coins be valid after new release?

Is this coin still going? I might have some old coins from a year ago.

Looking forward to seeing more DAPPS built on Bismuth. Price may suck now, but it should go up a lot once people start developing things on top of BIS.

@BCN_official,

Can you tell us about Bytecoin future.
What the team is up to?

What we, investors, can expect?

Hi, nibble!

We are working on the new roadmap, which we will release soon, so stay tuned.
better said why delisting?

lol... roadmap? rly. so this coin will actually see updates in the future?

is this dead after poloniex delisting? man... i remember when price was 2000 sats...

oh man, really disappointing to see this. not good for the price as well. will just be a mining for roi coin.. aka constant sell pressure.

what mining guys? i already shutted down all my rigs!!! the... end!

sell those cards before new ones come out! lol

Hello, I'm trying your alpha :
Code:
...
Found token! @2018-08-06 12:30:09 +0000 Ore:0 method:0 value:0.5
Token Address: 00000000-0000-00000032-000F92B8-00061284-0004D37B-000CDE...
Token successfully registered with Veldspar node.
...

What to do from here ?
How can we get the network and mining information ?

The next release of the node has a network statistics output,  showing what has been found,  what denominations etc.  I will post a link to the JSON api on here when itís gone up.

I upgraded to 0.0.3 and it seems that i'm finding way less tokens. Metrics are nice, but rewards have decreased.

you can open simplewallet and check your balance after some time

ok, mining now. thanks

cool, this is really early days so ironing out a couple of bugs as we go.  Mining works offline too, so you should see a message if we take the service down and then it will submit the finds again once it's back up.  Nothing should ever be lost.

Ok, awesome. What is the highest token reward? I like that it varies, but i'm curious about range.
