Obviously I can't use blockchain.info with Jinn. What about us?

Who are you , iotatoken, can you identify yourself, iotatoken should be your sockpuppet.

His name is David Sonstebo - https://bitscan.com/articles/all-about-iota-microtransactions-and-the-iot

David is the project manager for this project if I am correct.

True. I also don't see what CfB could possibly do with a sockaccount here haha

Yes. But the seed will be forced to 81 latin letters and '9'. Nothing stops other devs from using another approach, of course.

Iota is the 9th letter of Greek alphabet.

I'm going to read a bit between the lines here but IOTA is built to work efficiently with a ternary (as opposed to ye traditional binary) processor that CfB is working on.  I would assume that since there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, adding an additional character to the list would make a well rounded 27 (3^3) available characters.  So 3 trits (think base-3 bits) can easily represent one character in the pubkey.  By adding one more character to the usable alphabet you don't have to filter out or validate that one, unusable value. All possible 3-trit values can be used for an 81-character pubkey.

But why 9?  Since 0 and 1 tend to be thrown out of specialty character sets that may need to be read by humans, this would leave digits 2-9 as possible numeric candidates for the 27th letter of the alphabet. 

Being that this is for a ternary system, we could narrow down the numeric character subset to values "2", "3", "6" and "9" as best possibly choices for stylistic reasons.

Since 9 = 3^2 and as CfB mentioned is the position of the Iota in the Greek alphabet, it makes sense to use the character "9" as the final letter in the IOTA pubkey alphabet.

Again, I'm reading between the lines but this is likely the logic I would have followed if I needed to create a ternary-friendly alphabet consisting of a minimal subset of characters for pubkeys.

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.

Exactly, to ensure 243-trit entropy.

Exact 81 characters for a brain wallet seed, so it seems a little inconvenient for the user memory and input. I think there will be definitely some other wallets available with great random entropy and easy for use, say wallet file similar to Bitcoin.

Hi,
could you explain what is "random entropy", please?

It should be "randomness/entropy" Smiley

The first part is your public key, the second part is your checkpointing key.

Hi,
when I run the above with FireFox Browser, I get one string without a break. Is it correct to split two characters before the "_" to get pub key and checkpoint key?

There must be one string of 163 chars.

Maybe it is possible to separate then somehow, indicating which is which? will be a lot of confusion and questions about it in future Smiley

No need, users will use only the secret seed. That string will be published only once during the sale.

during the sale? I thought it was just for test. What is the purpose of this?
