The Quiz bot Medium post was posted to Reddit and was instantly downvoted... if anyone here is on Reddit this post could use some upvotes. https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/87axwi/invest_a_little_time_to_learn_about_the_most/?ref=share&ref_source=link



I'm a moderator on /r/cryptocurrency and posts like this encouraging people to brigade will result in the post being removed, and in repeated cases or cases where there is implicit or explicit support from moderators of a coin's "official" channels, that cryptocurrency will be banned from the subreddit for some period of time, as has been the case for several coins recently.

I support curbing efforts to prevent coordinated brigades in upvotes on Reddit, but IMO banning me (hhugh21) in /r/cryptocurrency for my comment on that thread is a bit excessive. The above post was a commentary on the fact that coins that aren't in favour with the moonboys get instantly downvoted and never see the light of day on the /r/cryptocurrency.  So it was a call to restore the imbalance... not to exploit the upvote button. I already don't see the value in participating on that subreddit because for reasons already mentioned... so to be honest by the time it took to write this I've already gotten over the 15 day ban.

It is often very difficult to detect brigading and it's a major issue on Reddit in general but particularly /r/cryptocurrency, so when it's done blatantly it will be removed and punished. The ban was for the comment here, requesting people to go upvote the post, i.e., brigade. 15 days seems lenient to me as normally it would be a permaban.

My post here wasn't an explicit request to upvote but I understand your position. I would have appreciated being reinstated considering the spirit of my post here but whatever... I've unsubscribed from /r/cryptocurrency. If anyone notices Byteball posts no longer get instantly downvoted let me know and I'll check it out again.

It was about as explicit as one could reasonably expect to see. Also, if you see people posting on here or telegram or other places asking users to go downvote some other coin that would warrant the same treatment.

Can byteball offer free transaction fee for a year or two? To increase adoption. Or maybe offer it indefinitely. It works for Iota and Nano.
I know fees are very low but as a marketing campaing it is powerful to say, it is fee free.
Why not!

you surprise us with every new update.
On a slightly different note I wanted to share that an increasing number of merchants are supporting Byteball in Milan. There was a Byteball meetup a few days ago. Things are moving in the right direction!
Byteball project is one of the most top-notch cryptocurrencies which can change the crypto-ecosystem and contribute to save our planet due to its sustainable algorithm. No mining, no heat lost during mining process, and no carbon emissions. It is also one of the most green-cryptocurrencies in crypto history.
Currently, Byteball has several potential sub-projects under-developed by their team.

I don't think it's possible, and the reason is spam.
To be quite honest, I don't understand how Iota and Nano will manage to avoid that kind of practice, but if it is a plausible solution, I see no reason why we could not discuss it here.

Today, we are launching a Telegram bot that allows to pass a small quiz and get a $5.00 worth reward in Bytes.  It is paid from the undistributed funds.

I have passed the quiz. It's eye-opening  and funny.It might take out most of us at the same time. The only disapointment was from the bot final message . "There was an error while trying to send your textcoin. We'll automatically retry until the textcoin is sent."

A sad part is that after a year beyond release byteball is still slow and centralized. But thanks to  tonych for $1000 worth of free tokens. This is not sad, I dump them with respect and best wishes Smiley

This is sad to see this original project struggling so hard. There are many investors dumping Byteball after Tony canceled airdrop. From what I see this airdrop attracted few big investors and now they are selling because they were only counting on money from airdrop and not wanted to support the project and hold for a long time. This shows that Tony decision was not bad at all I think. The main reason for airdrops is to attract new users and this could not be achieved. There are not much Byteballs left and Tony has to come up with a good strategy on how to distribute them. Still when I see Byteball price and actual community reactions I fill sad that such a great and innovative project had such a bad time.

Also there is something to learn and the usability of Byteball is well presented - well done! Smiley

To be honest I'm not concerned about this project atm. Yes it is struggling to moon, but mooning hasn't been core team's goal as of yet. Development is highly encouraging and a good foundation is being laid to ensure that this project has a fighting chance not only at surviving, but on boarding real users and use cases. I do agree that Tony should have signaled that the airdrop was being cancelled louder and sooner. But the arguments that support cancelling the airdrop IMO are much more compelling than the pro airdrop arguments I've seen.

But perception counts for a lot... if the GBYTE doesn't make new USD highs by the end of the next alt season or if governance or witnesses aren't distributed within a year then I'll get concerned.

About 500 users have passed the quiz since launch (despite frequent offs due to bugs, running out of money, running out of daily quota, etc) but I observe some share of fraud too.  It is not very large but concerning.  To reduce the incentive for fraud, the reward will now be reduced to $2.50.

Maybe what you should do is ask users to pay $8 worth of byteball to take the quiz, then if they successfully complete it you'll send them $20 worth of byteball back Tongue

Clever enough Smiley but unlike jumio there is no cost associated with running the quiz.
