Crikey, my last post was a disaster from start to finish.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.msg28172554#msg28172554
 
Please allow me to explain and hopefully redeem myself  Embarrassed:


In my frustration with the extremely divisive and damaging "name" issue, I tried to convey too many things all at once, hoping to illustrate that messaging can and does create peoples perceptions, and the same can be true for ByteBall - but I made a mistake, I rushed it - that image and the concept was way too under developed to be published at that time.

The truth is, I was really excited, because I believed I'd found a perfect symbol for ByteBall & the DAG (and still do).

It was the concept (in my mind anyways) of a "ball of bytes" speeding through cyberspace that first grabbed my attention, and the DAG growing...getting more powerful and faster over time...leaving a kind of tail of connected data... I found the image to be energizing & exciting, just like ByteBall.

So, more to the point of "Simplicity is beauty", I've tried to refine the concept a bit. (Unfortunately, my Photoshop skills are quite limited. A real graphics pro could take this concept much further than I, with font adjustments, size of the "Ball of Bytes", tail adjustments, better color grading variations etc. etc.)

I really think it's worth another look, and we simply have to get the energy up with regards to the ByteBall name. So here's my updated version:  Do you see the "Ball of Bytes" & the DAG as well?

All kinds of variations are possible, like this: or maybe this

So, what do you think? Perhaps it just doesn't resonate with anyone but me - and that's ok. It would just be nice to know.

If there is no response again (good or bad) for all that effort, I will have learned something else I need to know about this project as an actual investor. (yes, I have real money invested - no free ride for me - gives one a very different perspective - don't you think?)

Let me tell you this, if we as a community don't fix this silly name thing soon, it's gonna bite us. I don't want that to happen.

It seems to me that Tonych has no desire to change the name - and why should he, it's a great name - especially with the right graphics, messaging & marketing, and the support of the community of course. Anyone who giggles at the name is . . . well, ignorant. Why do we as a community tolerate it?

Please do your part to purge this disease from our midst so we can get on with more important things.

cheers.

There have been already many time spent and debates regarding the name, the logo, the website... you are stepping into a slow and frustrating direction.

You are getting very close to the original concept. At some point "White snowball" rolling downhill and constantly growing was a guiding image.

Wow, a really good read. Thanks for sharing and thanks for what you did.
I also appreciate what you said about "stepping into a slow and frustrating direction".
I know it's been frustrating for everyone, but I believe things can and are changing for the better.

What's the typical size of a transaction (since the fee is equal to the size in bytes, right?)? I'm curious what kind of costs are incurred for typical single output tx.

Also, I assume it's possible to generate extremely large txs by creating many outputs, or many txs with one output. Does this mean that the cost to spam the network with 1 GB of data is currently ~$1k? Would validator nodes simply reject a 1 GB tx? Spammers could be banned by validator?

well they would have to pay 1 GB fee for a 1 GB size tx, so it's unlikely to see that kind of spam. Unlike IOTA and XRB that have literally no defense against spammers. A small fee is better then no fee.

Ye verily, but I'm just curious about typical tx size, as well as validation of extremely large or extremely repetitive small txs.

Consider this, iota was an ico that raised (supposedly) 1337 BTC. If byteball started to get traction, and assuming that iota still had this BTC and claimed it in initial and subsequent airdrops, would these gbytes be more valuable to them to sell on the market (probably enough to crash it several times over) or to attach their competitor with TBs of spam.

I just am wondering how an attack like this would be handled by the network and validators, since, especially at this point the network is quite centralized.

the last transaction I did had around 800 bytes in size, so 800 bytes fee.

Really appreciate your efforts for sharing that piece of writing above few posts. I think sooner or later people will realize to that long termed base projects like Byteball are best way to make some small profit from there which is more reliable and stable way. It is taking time but we are heading towards more clear future.

Imagine hunderts of users siging up via microtransactions +BTC transaction fees.

Then comes announcement: No airdrop because we decide to distribute via Textcoin +  to people who use Byteball to purchase products with registered cash-back merchants. Grow the userbase, not holderbase....

On a scale of 1-10 how angry would you be? "But you kept the bot online!"

The Jumio-verified identity will be stored securely in the user’s Byteball wallet, while a “hash” – or an encrypted shorthand form of the personal data, will be posted to Byteball’s Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) as a proof of identity verification. When a user needs to provide their personal data to access a service, including an ICO, they can pull their data out of their Byteball wallet in just a few clicks.

Finally, a working digital id solution. People are talking about it since several years ago. What took it so long to implement?

Really cool stuff.

I assume this can be used to airdrop coins on unique individuals, right?
But I doubt many people will be willing to share their private information for some Bytes.
