Very good info! Well done Smiley

ICO soon? I can't wait. I prepare my bitcoin for the future project.

Hi,

I've downloaded the BTCD wallet and followed the instructions but after copying the peers.dat file to the roaming folder the wallet still doesn't sync. Is there a known issue at the moment?

better to add the addnode= lines to the BitcoinDark.conf

I posted the list of recent peers, but dont have it handy. hopefully someone will be able to find it and if it isnt on the website, we need to update the website with the list of recent peers

the bandwidth is on the slow side, but since we have so few NA nodes (kind of strange, but probably due to the chilling effect of USSA) I think it is worth setting up a testnet notary.

If there arent 16 notary nodes in NA, then all qualified candidates would get elected

EU is pretty much full already
100mbits/sec is the min recommended bandwidth, except in regions without enough nodes yet

This was asked a day or two ago from the GUI team and they said to be working really hard to achieve that.

Now anyone can control one of the 64 nodes which are needed for the Komodo Notary Network.

I have for rent:

6 (or 8, when i'm not getting elected) BadAss Notary Node incl. colo in a bulletproof location in the Netherlands.
A node can also be swapped with one of the servers in another geographic region!

1 x Intel Xeon L5520 (4 cores/8 threads) you can use 2 threads for Komodod and 2 for Bitcoind and others for administrative tasks.
64GB memory
1 x 500GB Samsung Enterprise SSD (no consumer version)
15TB bandwidth
1 x IPv4 addresses
KVM access and control panel
Installed with preferrable Linux distro

200USD per month in BTC (3 months up front)

I can fully secure the server and install everything for you for a fee if you don't know how to do that (one time 100usd). It is also possible that i manage the server for a fee (25usd per month)

My DC has an uptime of 99.9% (in reality it is 100%). jl777, BTCDdev and others can confirm this. All servers are directly connected to the AMS-IX backbones.

Keep in mind, you'll get 500usd per month in KMD & BTC (if KMD are not 500usd worth at that time). So a profit of 300USD. 200USD you pay me in BTC.

3 months up front, after that payment per month or annually (with discount 1 month FREE).

You rent the server ANONYMOUS. But please, don't think you can abuse the server. Phishing, spam mailruns, kiddyporn and terrorism is strictly forbidden!!

When payment is not received at the first week of a new month, the power goes down and you lose the right to be the owner of the node. A new owner will get elected and the pubkey will be changed on the notary node list.

ELECTION (READ THIS!)

Only elected people can get a spot. Server admins will get elected by the shareholders. This means that you can still be on the list for a spot, even when i already have 6 clients. If they won't get elected their spot comes available again. So I am looking for 14 possible clients.

You only pay when you get elected! So, basically this offer is a no brainer. Get elected and earn 300usd per month!

CURRENT LIST:

- yassinnxt
- pondsea
- stenkross
- proto
- Killakem
- Durerus
- Frl4web
- bitcoinuserx (reserve)
- (reserve)
- (reserve)
- (reserve)
- (reserve)
- (reserve)
- (reserve)

Only 1 spot per client

Q&A

- What do i need to do when i get elected?
Setup the server as a Komodo Notary Node, sit back and relax. Of course you have to secure the server so do your maintenance and updates.

- How do I get elected?
I don't know. Do a trump campaign, act crazy like Clinton or hug the shareholders? It's all up to you. Or read this https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1605144.msg16450895#msg16450895

- Is it really free money?
Well..uhm yeah. Get elected, run the node, receive Komodo's and there it is. Free money.

- What if the Komodo's are not worth the 500usd?
jl777 will give the rest in BTC from the ICO funds.

- Ok, i'm in, what to do?
Write a message in this topic why you want the node. And if you trust me up front, write me a trust review on BCT.

- What is BadAss Security Services?

BadAss (me) is a privacy and security consultant and specialised in being paranoia. BadAss does not like Tor services and so called anonymous VPN providers. BadAss provides co-location servers for all kinds of blockchain projects.

BadAss stands for an open and free internet and provides different services to support that noble thought. Like for instance:

Bulletproof VPS https://www.badass.sx
Bulletproof VPN https://www.rootvpn.eu
Encrypted Email Service https://www.safe-mail.eu
Bulletproof Blockchain Nodes
Anonymous domain registration
Anonymous DNS servers
SSL certificates
Installations of all kinds of services

BadAss cares about your privacy. For all of our services we only need your name and BTC payment.

We will make the internet GREAT again!!!


List updated

1 spot left. Who's in?

Need BadAss Bulletproof VPS or Bulletproof VPN or why not just mail safe with Safe-Mail. We care about your privacy.

Is there a chance running a notary node (and receiving KMD fees) might be considered a money transmitting business under FINCEN guidelines? My opinion is no, but I'm not a lawyer.

https://www.fincen.gov/sites/default/files/shared/FIN-2013-G001.pdf


The definition of a " Money Transmitting Business " is a subset of a Money Services Business  which Wikipedia defines as

An MSB has specific meanings in different jurisdictions, but generally includes any business that transmits money or representatives of money, provides foreign currency exchange such as Bureau de changes, or cashes cheques or other money related instruments. It is often used in the context of Anti Money Laundering (AML) legislation and rules.[1][2]


The beauty ( and bane)  of cryptocurrency is that the IRS and several other cases have ruled crypto as Property and not money.   I'm no lawyer but if its consider property then nodes are not considered money transmitting businesses and do not need FINCEN registration.   If you are concerned, it would be best to check with a business lawyer  preferably one that deals with cryptocurrency.


Regarding Mining/Staking and similar:

I can't speak for everywhere but the IRS guidance for cryptocurrency mining is that it is considered income.  


quickly reading the PDF:

###
"A user who obtains convertible virtual currency and uses it to purchase real or virtual goods or services is not an MSB under FinCEN’s regulations"

"an administrator or exchanger is an MSB under FinCEN’s regulations, specifically, a money transmitter, unless a limitation to or exemption from the definition applies to the person."

"An administrator is a person engaged as a business in issuing (putting into circulation) a virtual currency, and who has the authority to redeem (to withdraw from circulation) such virtual currency"
###

I am not a lawyer(!) but my  understanding of this is that a notary node (or anybody that is mining) is putting into circulation a virtual currency but there is no redeem powers as the KMD that is mined cannot be destroyed. Clever lawyers might try to argue that anybody can burn by sending to a null pubkey, but it is not actually destroyed, just very unlikely to be able to be spent. Also, any such "authority" would be something all users would have and as such is not fitting the context of an administrator. After all, how can everybody be an administrator?

It would be nice if someone with legal experience in this can confirm that mining crypto does not make an administrator. It seems to apply more to gateways.

In more good news the DEX I think fits into the end user category as each DEX swap is an end user paying crypto in exchange for crypto.

From what I can tell, it is the providing of services to third parties that is what is being regulated. Direct peer to peer commerce does not seem to be covered by this, but again this is not any legal opinion, just my reading of the PDF above

afaik the guy who's looked into this issue the most is anonymint/TPTB/iamnotback, his two threads below are required reading if you want to learn more about crypto regulation and legal issues. He's not a lawyer, but getting his opinion on the legal status of notary nodes would be very useful.

Topic: The altcoin topic everyone wants to sweep under the rug  (Read 15182 times)
Topic: Which crypto-coins are "investment securities"? Implications?  (Read 4427 times)


Peter Van Valkenburgh is a lawyer with a Washington based non-profit crypto policy think tank, Coin Center. This talk is a good introduction to crypto regulation. Reaching out to these guys might yield some good advice too.
Devcon2: Regulatory Considerations for Dapp Development
https://coincenter.org/entry/framework-for-securities-regulation-of-cryptocurrencies


IMO KMD has features that are part virtual currency (FINCEN) and part security (SEC), so understanding both regulatory frameworks is important. Obviously it's too early to be definitive, and many in the cryptosphere obviously haven't considered these issues, or consciously ignore them, but I think it's good to know the rules even if you decide to break them. Also, as mentioned by Peter Van Valkenburgh in the Devcon talk, being a non american does not save you from USA law if USA citizens buy your token.
