As I understand it, ripple XRP were 100% premined and 60% are still hodl'd by the creators. With byteball it was 100% premined and I think 35% are currently hodl'd by creator. So yes quite similar. But byteball not quite as bad. And Tony (byteball creator) still as far as I know 'promising' to distribute all in ways judged to increase the amount of byteball users. (however the timescale for distribution is unknown).
Thanks. 35% premined hold by tonych, the rest will be distributed completely somehow. It is still better than Ripple. The project has good features which can change the mining industry, and with plans for distribution 65% premined, I hope Byteball will have appropriate marketing campaigns to attract as many investors as possible.

Yeah, simplicity is the best, as Tony stated via his signature. No block, no chain, non-DAG algorithm, textcoin (no need available wallet to send coins to receivers). Lots of breaking features in Byteball specifications.
I support Byteball and hope someday this one will become greater than Ethereum.

What would interest me in general about byteball, when are the witnesses chosen or determined? As far as I know (and so it is in the white paper) Tony and/or the admins are still controlling the nodes. Thus, Byteball is currently centralized to my understanding. Is there a roadmap to when the witnesses should be determined?

What if Byteball goes from negligible fees to no fees? Then it will be on par with IOTA and Nano. These three coins (and their their successor DAG coins) will then dominate the entire cryptocurrency space!

What if Byteball goes from negligible fees to no fees? Then it will be on par with IOTA and Nano. These three coins (and their their successor DAG coins) will then dominate the entire cryptocurrency space!

Let me quote the founder and lead developer once again:

About the fees. We want a system that is fair as much as possible, and doesn’t bleed resources to the outside world such as what PoW does, and still protects against spam. We don’t want a fee market and uncertainty that it brings, we want a fee that is known for certain. And fair means that the fee is proportional to the amount of resources consumed from the peers.

The simplest way to satisfy all these criteria is to set the fee equal to the transaction size in bytes. That simple. This also gives the natural name to the native currency: byte. You pay 1 byte of the currency to store 1 byte of transaction data.

Having no fees at all means less security and no spam protection.

You can not compare Ripple and Byteball. Neither the technology nor the distribution. It is like comparing bears and apples. Ripple has a horrible distribution. Some months ago I read this post on Reddit covering Ripple's distribution. It shows all the madness.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Ripple/comments/7pr341/xrp_distribution/

As I understand it, ripple XRP were 100% premined and 60% are still hodl'd by the creators. With byteball it was 100% premined and I think 35% are currently hodl'd by creator. So yes quite similar. But byteball not quite as bad. And Tony (byteball creator) still as far as I know 'promising' to distribute all in ways judged to increase the amount of byteball users. (however the timescale for distribution is unknown).

We've got our first fiat on-ramp https://medium.com/byteball/buying-bytes-with-visa-or-mastercard-d8ee2d1a2b07

After passing the real-name attestation, it is now possible to buy Bytes with Visa and Mastercard with a low fee.  The fee is partially subsidized from undistributed funds.

The 3% net commission does seem to be too high, but of course if you look at the 20% charge when buying from Indacoin directly, it is low.  Restricting the reward per user to $100 is not bad, because nobody is going to buy thousands of dollars worth of Byteball using this method.
But I wonder how many new users this method would attract to Byteball? Not too many, if you are a jumio-attested user already.

look at how much changelly put on top of the price when it was available. sometimes it was double. this isn't too far off the norm.

it's a great boon. very few projects have this availability, especially in wallet.

I'm not impressed. I don't see a point in this. If you have a visa/mastercard card, you have a bank account. If you have a bank account, you can just wire money on an exchange and buy bytes with reasonable 1-3% fee. Instead of working with high volume exchanges to list bytes, Tonych and team developed this rather bizarre way of buying bytes heavily subsidizing a private company in the process with undistributed funds.

Tell me what's so cool about it?

What a strange way of looking at things. People having bank accounts or not doesn't have anything to do with it.

The purpose of a fiat on-ramp is to reduce the amount of steps you have to take to purchase Bytes, make it simpler. You can't "just wire money to an exchange", you have to register an account, sometimes verify your bank account (small transaction to prove ownership of account) and when you want to withdraw you sometimes have to get your identity verified first. Trading costst fees and withdrawing costs fees, plus you have to learn how any particular exchange works. For new users this isn't particularly easy so why not try to improve the process?

Making it simpler is easier said than done but you have to start somewhere. First step is to establish an identity that you can use again and again and is trusted by banks/exchanges, that's why we have the Jumio attestation.  This is a way bigger deal than people make it out to be, the fact that we have this now means that the Byteball platform is trusted to be secure!

Now that you are trusted (i.e. replaced the proven to own bank account step + the proven identity step in one go) it's still pretty hard to find a party that allows direct crypto purchases but Tony managed to do just that: Indacoin. So now attested Byteball users can purchase Bytes through Mastercard or Visa without creating any extra accounts or having to verify anything extra. The fees on a site like Indacoin have to be huge because they run the risk of CC fraud/chargebacks, this risk is mugh lower for people being attested on Byteball so they naturally reduced the fees. This means Indacoin also trusts the Byteball platform! I guess once they find out fraud/chargebacks are almost non existant the fee could be lowered again, let's see.

So the big deal is not that people who already trust Byteball and jumped through a lot of hoops to get attested can now finally buy Bytes with fiat directly but the big deal is that Tony managed to convince outsiders that the Byteball platform can actually be trusted.

This paves the way for many more partnerships and improvements, these are the anchors to the real world that you need to become a succesful platform.

Now the subsidizing through undistributed funds also makes perfect sense because otherwise noone is going to use the service and that would be rather discouraging, also for Indacoin and Jumio. Getting all of this off the ground is a huge feat that will be appreciated in due time.
