That's pretty cool, good job. Are there any statistics available for the usage of the betting-bot? Interested to know if it comes close to the average betting crypto betting sites and if people are able to find their way to the bot or that some marketing might be a good idea to stimulate the usage.

So far 3890 bets have been made through the betting-bot for 8 months of activity, it's certainly far from well known betting sites and of course any marketing is welcomed.
At the beginning the activity was really weak but nothing was really mature and some problems were to be fixed both on sports-oracle and betting-bot. Now everything runs quite smoothly and there is a nice growing trend than began 1 month ago when makers were offered the possibility to automatize their odds offers placement (check https://github.com/Papabyte/betting-bot-API).
With the World Cup, we have now around 60 unique users every single day. I hope that at this point the word will spread and we will see more grow. After all some ICOs get millions to create trustless betting platforms and we are still waiting for their delivery. But thanks to the efficiency and simplicity of Byteball, a one guy army was able to propose such a platform with an unbeatable easiness and extremely low fees.
One issue left is that for now the platform is not trustless for makers, but I have some idea to fix that in a way that is only possible with Byteball.

That's a good start and some nice growth already too. Great use case for Byteball and cool to see what a one man army can develop on the platform. I will share it with my trading group too Smiley

Betting regularly with the P2P Betting Bot on the World Cup. So far so good (and a bit of extra GBYTEs).
The only thing I would work on for the future is the possibility of placing multiple bets instead of singles. (parlays Wink )
But that's good for now

Do you have any idea who is actually posting those odds? I can't tell whether people are actually betting against each other or if there is a well capitalised bookie that set's the lines.

Jeez this coin has managed to drop to 112 on CMC  Angry Angry Angry

From 1000$ to 120$ in absolute value, but that is not the issue in a bear market, the issue is that this coin has gone from page 1 on CMC to page 2, and is going into oblivion fast.

Byteball is the leading coin with DAG algorithm and a great wallet and so on. It takes a lot of idiocy and bad marketing to run it into the ground like this.

Having such a small market cap is a major knee jerk, I am 100% sure it would be among the first 30 coins if it was listed in MBYTE instead of GBYTE...

MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH crappier coins are further up.  Embarrassed Cry

Truth is the new hatespeech.

ICO owners are always the most winners because coins are cheaper before they go to the market and they also give a bonus. and when coins rise most, it is time to first go to the market. the best ICOs are ICOs created by whale groups. All of the LBR's directors are members of the whale group.

Byteball has a complete different technology - it uses Tangle which is neither PoW nor PoS. Just google for it if you want to learn further details.

This sounds all good. I like the comparison of Byteball to a huge box of Legos. Happy about the new Polish ambassador and the ongoing Venezuelan project. Ideally, we would need at least one great ambassador per country.

Yes going to mbyte would be a great help for all those noobs that pay attention to per token price and that is a huge % of noobs actually.

However there are other pressing issues.

1. the project is not very decentralised
2. the project is not fully distributed either after all of this time.

all of these need correcting before any rise will take place.

I don't think so. Basically all coins were down, no exceptions. So, even if good news were coming out of Byteball's ears, it wouldn't impact the price at all. Remember during the insane bull run of 2017, even bullshit coins were pumped without reason. Same thing now in reverse.

I see that again and again there are people here who claim that Byteball should be not be listed in Gigabytes in exchanges since this would be harming the price, because investors would perceive the high cost of one Gigabyte very expensive. I have always been against the "tactical" idea of scaling down the official unit of measurement just for the purpose to benefit the price. Tony has always stated that he is not interested in the price but in the distribution of the coin, and I have always agreed on that.

But then, I've also seen Byteball listed in Gigabytes on Coinmarketcap and something has suddenly clicked in my mind.
The fact that Byteball is measured in Gigabytes is not a problem because this is harming its price.

The fact that Byteball is measured in Gigabytes is a problem because it is crucially violating Byteball's mission number one: to achieve mass adoption.

Even though Byteball's monetary base is consisting in billions of bytes, only 650.000 Gigabytes or so are existing now, and max supply will be 1 Million.
Therefore, if you are thinking in terms of Gigabytes, mass adoption is virtually impossible. People will always feel the frustration of not being able to own even one single Gigabyte and they will likely not even take into consideration the currency. Since there are whales who own a lot of Gigabytes, people who will be able to afford one entire Gigabyte will be in the thousands - best case scenario. This is NOT mass adoption.
People will argue that something similar is happening with Bitcoin - most of the people today can afford to own only fractions of a Bitcoin. But this, in fact, is one of the main problems of Bitcoin, people have always to carefully count how many zeroes there are before the quantity of satoshis of their transactions. This is totally absurd and in fact Bitcoin today is used only as a speculative store of value, and NOT as a real currency.
Byteball aimed to be better, but if the total monetary base is consisting in just 1 Million coins the fact is that it has just AMPLIFIED 21 times this problem of Bitcoin, it has not at all solved it. There will be max 21 Million Bitcoins, and Byteball won't ever have more than one Million Gigabytes. If you are thinking in term of Gigabytes, you have just made the problem 21 times worse. And now we are thinking in terms of Gigabytes. When I'm speaking with my friend we are talking about how many Gigabytes we have, not Megabytes or Bytes. This is a mistake.

We have to think at Gigabytes as we are thinking at the Million of dollars.

The few who can afford owning the Gigabytes are the rich elite, just like those who are owning the Million of dollars. Most of the people don't own Million of dollars (or euros), they just own dollars (or euros). Perhaps thousands of Euros/Dollars ("grands"), but not Millions.
And if Byteball will achieve mass adoption most of the people won't own Gigabytes, they will just own Bytes. Or Kilobytes. If you consider bytes to be cents, then you should consider the ideal unity of Byteball being Kilobytes. Not even Megabytes. Megabytes would somehow semantically sound like the "grands" - one thousand dollars or pounds according to the urban dictionary of FIAT money.
Just as you don't buy a packet of cigarettes with 0.00001 Million of Dollars, you shouldn't have to buy it with 0.001 Gigabytes.
This all could seem a trivial problem to many, but it is not. Reality is a state of mind and perception is playing a fundamental role in the shaping of reality.
To use Gigabytes to measure Byteball generates a cognitive dissonance with the mission of achieving mass adoption. It makes feel Byteball to be an elitarian coin/platform, not a popular one. The exchanges, and more than that Coinmarketcap, are the places where the measurment unit of Byteball is officialized. If exchanges and Coinmarketcap will tell Gigabytes, people will think in Gigabytes, and this makes no sense, since in ordinary life you don't think in terms of Million of Dollars/Euros. That would be crazy. And to insist to speak about Byteball in terms of Gigabytes is crazy too. It basically makes bo sense.

As I've said, I'm not interested in the price of Byteball. In a healthy environment the price is just a natural consequence. But I am interested in seeing one little problem corrected, which alone is able to jeopardize Byteball's entire mission, since it's in complete dissonance with the "philosophy" of Byteball.

Just my two cents (or Bytes)

It is an interesting argument, but the real focus is not just widespread distribution of Byteball, but widespread adoption. If you do shift the unit of listing at exchanges to MegaBytes or KiloBytes, you would have more people buying. The problem is that most of them will be speculators with no motive of trying to use bytes.

I think now is the time for beginners to look at this project and study it in detail, because there comes a time when you need to look after the purchase of coins. This coin still seems to me has the right to exist and may be a success in the future.

I see that again and again there are people here who claim that Byteball should be not be listed in Gigabytes in exchanges since this would be harming the price, because investors would perceive the high cost of one Gigabyte very expensive. I have always been against the "tactical" idea of scaling down the official unit of measurement just for the purpose to benefit the price. Tony has always stated that he is not interested in the price but in the distribution of the coin, and I have always agreed on that.

But then, I've also seen Byteball listed in Gigabytes on Coinmarketcap and something has suddenly clicked in my mind.
The fact that Byteball is measured in Gigabytes is not a problem because this is harming its price.

The fact that Byteball is measured in Gigabytes is a problem because it is crucially violating Byteball's mission number one: to achieve mass adoption.

Even though Byteball's monetary base is consisting in billions of bytes, only 650.000 Gigabytes or so are existing now, and max supply will be 1 Million.
Therefore, if you are thinking in terms of Gigabytes, mass adoption is virtually impossible. People will always feel the frustration of not being able to own even one single Gigabyte and they will likely not even take into consideration the currency. Since there are whales who own a lot of Gigabytes, people who will be able to afford one entire Gigabyte will be in the thousands - best case scenario. This is NOT mass adoption.
People will argue that something similar is happening with Bitcoin - most of the people today can afford to own only fractions of a Bitcoin. But this, in fact, is one of the main problems of Bitcoin, people have always to carefully count how many zeroes there are before the quantity of satoshis of their transactions. This is totally absurd and in fact Bitcoin today is used only as a speculative store of value, and NOT as a real currency.
Byteball aimed to be better, but if the total monetary base is consisting in just 1 Million coins the fact is that it has just AMPLIFIED 21 times this problem of Bitcoin, it has not at all solved it. There will be max 21 Million Bitcoins, and Byteball won't ever have more than one Million Gigabytes. If you are thinking in term of Gigabytes, you have just made the problem 21 times worse. And now we are thinking in terms of Gigabytes. When I'm speaking with my friend we are talking about how many Gigabytes we have, not Megabytes or Bytes. This is a mistake.

We have to think at Gigabytes as we are thinking at the Million of dollars.

The few who can afford owning the Gigabytes are the rich elite, just like those who are owning the Million of dollars. Most of the people don't own Million of dollars (or euros), they just own dollars (or euros). Perhaps thousands of Euros/Dollars ("grands"), but not Millions.
And if Byteball will achieve mass adoption most of the people won't own Gigabytes, they will just own Bytes. Or Kilobytes. If you consider bytes to be cents, then you should consider the ideal unity of Byteball being Kilobytes. Not even Megabytes. Megabytes would somehow semantically sound like the "grands" - one thousand dollars or pounds according to the urban dictionary of FIAT money.
Just as you don't buy a packet of cigarettes with 0.00001 Million of Dollars, you shouldn't have to buy it with 0.001 Gigabytes.
This all could seem a trivial problem to many, but it is not. Reality is a state of mind and perception is playing a fundamental role in the shaping of reality.
To use Gigabytes to measure Byteball generates a cognitive dissonance with the mission of achieving mass adoption. It makes feel Byteball to be an elitarian coin/platform, not a popular one. The exchanges, and more than that Coinmarketcap, are the places where the measurment unit of Byteball is officialized. If exchanges and Coinmarketcap will tell Gigabytes, people will think in Gigabytes, and this makes no sense, since in ordinary life you don't think in terms of Million of Dollars/Euros. That would be crazy. And to insist to speak about Byteball in terms of Gigabytes is crazy too. It basically makes bo sense.

As I've said, I'm not interested in the price of Byteball. In a healthy environment the price is just a natural consequence. But I am interested in seeing one little problem corrected, which alone is able to jeopardize Byteball's entire mission, since it's in complete dissonance with the "philosophy" of Byteball.

Just my two cents (or Bytes)
interesting scalling perspective. maybe it would indeed help on the adoption phase a little. but maybe it is too early in the game for that. if the community will grow, it would eventually reach that point by itself. a few years ago we would talk about owning a few btc, now fractions of it...in the future...who knows? for the adoption goal the idea is actually very good. merited the post.

It is an interesting argument, but the real focus is not just widespread distribution of Byteball, but widespread adoption. If you do shift the unit of listing at exchanges to MegaBytes or KiloBytes, you would have more people buying. The problem is that most of them will be speculators with no motive of trying to use bytes.

Who's using it now?

https://byteball.fr/heartbeat.php

There's maybe a few transactions per minute on average, every node that matters is operated by one person, and the trading volume is only $100k per day (no one is even speculating on it). I don't really see how it can degrade the situation much at this point.

To clarify, when you say 10% distribution, do you mean 10% of the balance of Bitcoin is accounted for?

Also, will be need our private keys to claim Byteballs in our Byteballs wallet?
