It must be 81 chars long and can contain '9' and lowercase latin letters.

The seed must contain up to 81 chars. Lower case latin letters and "9" are allowed.

Has something changed (Re: bold parts)?   Undecided

Yes, I made it more user-friendly, those who can't memorize 81 chars are allowed to use "qwerty" and the like.

Please publish the code for genning addresses.  I'll update my functional C# version (not yet published.)

A Personal Quote on BTT from 2011:
"I'd be willing to make a moderate "investment" if the value of the BTC went below $2.00.  Otherwise I'll just have to live with my 5 BTC and be happy. :/"  ...sigh.  If only I knew.
Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

The best-known tmto algorithm is 20 million times slower with 1 millionth' the memory.

Of course, even being just 200 times slower means you will rarely find a block
if the block interval is just 100 proof attempts long...

This is where we stopped the last time - I claimed that it's not a problem for a QC to do 20 million computations at once (25X qubits is enough to do a computation on 33 million sets of data).

It is a big misconception to think that QC are some magical device that can speedup arbitrary computation. Evidence suggests that they have limited speedup applicability
(all variations of Grover's unstructured search and Shor's group structured search).

I think I urged you to read Scott Aaronson's
"The Limits of Quantum Computers"
http://www.scottaaronson.com/writings/limitsqc-draft.pdf
last time, to correct this misconception.

Yes, and I quoted text that was proving my point.

You didn't prove any point. You just vaguely alluded that since QC can do many computations in superposition, that it must somehow speedup Cuckoo Cycle finding.

Is it what was written in that paper? That by increasing number of qubits 30-fold number of computations done within the same timeframe is increased 1'000'000'000-fold?

Do you have a recommended minimum chars?

When is the launch?

Beta: soon. Waiting for reviews and nodes. Christmas now, so development will naturally be slightly lower than previous, then full launch in January as planned.

I don't think the paper would be discussing a 30 fold increase in qubits.
More likely they discussed an extra 30 qubits.

For some very particular computation, like integer factoring,
an extra 30 qubits allow you to factorize a number that has 15 more bits.
(http://arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0205095 showed a Circuit for Shor's algorithm using 2n+3 qubits).

So in that case you have 2^15 more states in superposition.

Is IOTA connected with nxthaus in any way? I believe David was involved with that project but can't find any current info on nxthaus. Will iota be traded on that exchange?

Not connected at all and I was only peripherally involved in getting a fiat gateway setup. I have spoken with the team and they consider adding it

More likely they discussed an extra 30 qubits.

I took the worst-case scenario, e.g. from 10 to 300 qubits. In your case the same effect is achieved with 10 -> 40 transition.

Really great job guys!!

Well done.

This is the start of a new era.

Can someone explain in "tangle for dummies" terms how Iota is quantum resistant and how Bitcoin is not?

How/When do we collect our IOTAs? I have never been involved in a presale before and don't really know what I'm doing. Wink

Great job guys, look forward to seeing where this goes.
