Random-String-Symphony we aren't asking for free money. Lots of people paid money for bytes. It was implied that bytes holders would end up with a bigger share of the total amount versus Tony giving 35% away at his whims. Many of us believe that supporting the currency by treating its holders well is the best way to increase usage. Nano had free xrb for anyone for years with faucets but the vast majority of its use came after the endless inflation stopped and the remaining coins were burned. We have a right to be upset and you have no moral high ground by "not caring" about the price.

There is a difference between being upset and burning something to the ground. I'm all for a civilised discussion about both sides of the story. My side (as in the explanation I accept) is pretty clear, but let's summarise it nevertheless:

Intention of airdrop program: get as many users as possible. This worked for a while but showed diminishing returns. Tony tries to come up with better methods. So far he has come up with: cashback, textcoin mass mailings, giveaways through promotions, verification & referral rewards. In November he already explained that these methods were in the works but he didn't know when exactly they would be finished so instead of just cancelling the airdrop method outright he put up one more on the calendar with the fair warning that he could delete/cancel it at any time if he liked the results of the new methods. He did, so he cancelled it. Now we still have a fair distribution, only the methods changed. The Bytes now go to newcomers and actual users instead of Bytes/BTC holders. I don't see any problem with this. He warned everyone long ago and he has very good reasons for changing the method. So in my book, this is good for the project. What's good for the project is good for my investment. I'm happy.

So what's your side?

That's exactly what I meant. I invested tons of money into this, so I believe I have a right to be pissed off at the dev who changes his mind just like that right before the planned date.
Good tech they say, but bad management. Just like steem, but worse.

I deleted that post within 2 minutes of posting it because I realised it is useless to argue with a moron like you. So I have no intention of doing that. My other reply stands.

Cool, now you are allowed to go and fuck yourself

It's quite funny to see how shortsighted many of you are. Tony's vision is quite clear and he is very very ambitious. That's why I love this project so much. Who cares about the price in $ or BTC of GBYTE at this stage anyway, it's barely year 2 of the project. Distribution is nowhere near finished, decentralization still has to happen and new features are being churned out like clockwork. Anyone who zooms out a little can see that this is the most impressive crypto project of them all, especially considering it's mostly being built by a single genius coder who luckily doesn't give a damn about speculators or so called investors. For those of you still blinded by greed I'll spell it out for you:

1. Designed from the ground up as a better version of Bitcoin in every possible way, yes even security wise. In theory ofcourse, he's busy building all this.
2. Understanding that you should focus on user adoption and user experience instead of speculation/exchanges.
3. Currently roughly ~15tps max but no time wasted on speed optimization yet because the network is nowhere near capacity yet, so waste of time, better work on new features. We know it can scale.
4. Understand that this is meant to be used in the real world instead of "HODLed till moon". So some kind of trust is not bad, extremism is bad. You can still be swindled with your 100% trustless currency, because the physical world does actually exist. So why not integrate with it! Witnesses are a brilliant solution to bond the real and virtual worlds.
5. Marketing, whatfor!? The basics aren't even finished yet, why start screaming already? Marketing to get active contributors involved, yes! Please let's do that. But hardly anyone does anything but whine instead of helping Tony achieve his mission.

So once all of this is done, a few years from now probably, Byteball will turn into:
The most feature rich, extremely fast (at least x100 from now) crypto platform you can imagine with insanely low fees that has millions of actual users.
12 high profile real world witnesses, like Jumio, Bittrex, Amazon, Tesla, Wikileaks, UNICEF, etc. providing decentralization and security.
Many useful chat bots and integration in many web front ends / web applications as a backend system.

That's what I believe in and why I have bought some (a lot) GB on top of what I got for free. If you don't believe in it then please just dump your GB and move to some other project.
All of you that learned about this project before November had a chance to own a part of this for FREE, noone asked you to invest in it.

Now that the groundwork is almost finished and actual ICOs can be run on Byteball it's beginning to make sense to buy some Bytes to actually use it, so why give everything away for free to the people who already got so many. It just doesn't make sense. So from this whole vision it's super obvious that the airdrops must stop, they will destroy the vision when continued.

So, who wants to contribute instead of whine?


What vision are you talking about?if it was a good vision this shit wouldn’t happen even shit coins invented yesterday by nobody have some sort of a road map if he has clear vision with a road map and follow exactly the road map people expect what they will get and what they will not, eventhough he said few months ago that the March airdrop could be cancelled or postponed but that’s not the way it should be done you either confirm or cancel the airdrop not maybe or maybe not because simply it’s not fair for people who lately bought into byteball,personally I am not happy not because the airdrop was cancelled I am not happy because I think the distribution should have already finished and byteball has moved to the next step to make a decentralised coins regardless of the distribution method,i am not happy for the lack of communication from the Dev I am not happy because the Dev doesn’t seem to give a damn about adding byteball to new exchanges they have plenty of money in the community fund but i am not sure yet what they doing with the money there in fact I don’t think it’s a community fund because it controlled by the Dev to be eligible for the name community fund it has to be controlled by the community and just to mention some coins come to life just few weeks ago have already added to some major exchanges without any problem but the way I see it byteball team doesn’t really care about adding the coin to new exchanges.

i'm not bothered about the lack of airdrop but i am bothered by the lack of clarity. make plans and go through with them or don't mention them at all.

the 'new' distribution methods are failures. the previous one, especially the bitcoin holder part was pretty dumb too.

right now this project needs to have the developer's grip loosened and let it go out into the world and see what happens. that means distribution and rapidly.

Remember unspent funds are one of the key assets Byteball has over the vast majority of other crypto projects. Further you are incorrect in saying the new distribution methods are failures. Most have only been tested on a small scale, and have successfully got new users which is the aim.

Other methods are being explored, but Tony rightly isnt going to rapidly burn through this valuable asset, unless its a roaring success. User aquisition is a major problem for all cryptos, and Byteball has a huge advantage with its unspent funds to aid the process

nope. they're a liability.

developer funds have been ringfenced already. this huge percentage is floating around looking for a home. distribution by any means would indeed be foolish. noodling around with it still piled up is as well.

there are other plans such as a set amount for the first however many millions of wallet openers. that makes sense. this cashback stuff and failed id verification handouts are not realistic or pragmatic.

Look around you, unspent funds from changing plans only serve to create uncertainty, and turn previous supporters of the project into disgruntled ex-investors.

Tony has created a great project, but it's time to let it sink or swim. Crypto isn't a fringe hobby for tech nerds anymore, it's going mainstream, and the best evangelists now are rusted on early adopters with big bags of BB ready to fund other activities. The present 'crisis' means some of these BB evangelists are strapping on parachutes ready to jump, and that's a far bigger loss than any possible benefit of distributing smaller amounts to new users.

imo the best outcome from here is

- re-instate March drop
- continue moon drops but at a reduced rate
- use 10% of remaining undistributed BB for the newer distro methods
- set goal of completing 100% of distribution within 6 months

Above would allow Tony to delegate growing BB adoption more to community, letting him concentrate on dev work, which is obviously his strong suite, thus creating a much more decentralised project than we currently have, and complete certainty for people when considering to buy/sell BB.

We could have this resolved in 24 hours, and Tony would be free to concentrate on BB dev work, and nobody would bust his balls over community consultation & communication ever again!

That's what I believe in and why I have bought some (a lot) GB on top of what I got for free. If you don't believe in it then please just dump your GB and move to some other project.
All of you that learned about this project before November had a chance to own a part of this for FREE, noone asked you to invest in it.

Now that the groundwork is almost finished and actual ICOs can be run on Byteball it's beginning to make sense to buy some Bytes to actually use it, so why give everything away for free to the people who already got so many. It just doesn't make sense. So from this whole vision it's super obvious that the airdrops must stop, they will destroy the vision when continued.

So, who wants to contribute instead of whine?


This post is so good and visionary that I was compelled to give it one of my few sMerits. Smiley
While it is understandable that from the moment that cryptocurrencies have acquired a spendable monetary value (fur sure it was not like that in the early days of Bitcoin) people have got used to worry that the "value which they own" would not evaporate, this speculation-bound aspect of cryptos, which has a strong delusional component, has overall taken the scene obliterating most of the real world aspects of this game.
In fact I would invite everyone to consider how most of the cryptocurrencies out there are now mainly sailing pushed just by the wind of some sort of marketing hype. Structural and strategic decisions for the coins are now often taken just for reason of marketing, which is a way to say that the narrative has taken over the substance in cryptos. Just observe the proliferation of copy/paste masternode coins, which are even created from the very beginning only for reasons of marketing.
Byteball on the other side IS sticking to the program, which is NOT a marketing program, but a pure developement one. And the efforts to enlarge the adoption base - no matter if by the way of the original airdrop or through new methods - are strictly connected with the original plan. The original plan was, and still is, beyond the technical development, which has never stopped nor slowed down, to grow as much as possible the quantity of "nodes" of the network (the adopters of the coin) because THIS and only THIS has the property of growing the value of the coin in a SUSTAINABLE way, for the reasons expressed in Metcalfe's laws, as opposed as rising them just with for reasons of hype and ephemeral marketing magic.
As for contributing, I'm working on a project which I hope at some point could become helpful for Byteball, but for now it's still in a too early stage.

Remember unspent funds are one of the key assets Byteball has over the vast majority of other crypto projects. Further you are incorrect in saying the new distribution methods are failures. Most have only been tested on a small scale, and have successfully got new users which is the aim.

Look around you, unspent funds from changing plans only serve to create uncertainty, and turn previous supporters of the project into disgruntled ex-investors.

Tony has created a great project, but it's time to let it sink or swim. Crypto isn't a fringe hobby for tech nerds anymore, it's going mainstream, and the best evangelists now are rusted on early adopters with big bags of BB ready to fund other activities. The present 'crisis' means some of these BB evangelists are strapping on parachutes ready to jump, and that's a far bigger loss than any possible benefit of distributing smaller amounts to new users.

imo the best outcome from here is

- re-instate March drop
- continue moon drops but at a reduced rate
- use 10% of remaining undistributed BB for the newer distro methods
- set goal of completing 100% of distribution within 6 months

Above would allow Tony to delegate growing BB adoption more to community, letting him concentrate on dev work, which is obviously his strong suite, thus creating a much more decentralised project than we currently have, and complete certainty for people when considering to buy/sell BB.

We could have this resolved in 24 hours, and Tony would be free to concentrate on BB dev work, and nobody would bust his balls over community consultation & communication ever again!


100% agree but history telling us Tonych will never listen or care to what's written in this thread so feel free to continue the discussion regardless to what Tonych will do.

Not gonna happen. At this point Byteball would even need a full rebranding to restore investors confidence. There is no reason to think anything is going to change when it hasn't happened when it was easier to come up with a plan and just stick to it.

As I said before just take it or leave it as it is. Don't expect anything and you won't be disappointed. It's more healthy to think that way.  

For me, having less than 10GB's, it's easy to just accept failure (as an asset) in one of many coins. If anyone invested their life savings on it... well, shouldn't have put all your eggs on the same basket, especially in extremely high risk investments.

Oh, and no one was really fooled here... it was perfectly clear from the beginning that this was basically a one man's project, that he decided from the beginning to distribute for free. He can't really be blamed for any posterior value it reached through speculation or any expectations we could have based on our own (wrong) bad judgement.

Probably he never wanted it to hold any (monetary) value and it was all just an undesired side effect due to the high amount of speculation in crypto markets.

Just focus on the tech, monetary value is completely irrelevant at this moment. Maybe in the future some other coins (or as a sidechain) with a market based focus could adopt the code and offer the best of both worlds.

Harsh but spot on. Tony doesn't listen.

When I try to send GBB, my wallet says: "Too many authors." Considering splitting the payment into two units. ".
What could it be? How to fix it? I can not do the transaction.

This is explained in the Byteball wiki page, which contains a list of error messages

new distribution methods are and will be a total failure full stop

The idea that giving 20$ to a random person will make him a lifelong Byteball community member is a failure. I bet all the people posting here and caring have bought BB.
