We are changing the way we communicate our development and other activities.

Previously, we developed products and updates for some time and then released them when they were ready to be used. Being focused on real working products and the problems they solve, we didn’t involve the community in something that didn’t exist yet, couldn’t be shown yet, couldn’t be used yet.

However, this practice has the downside that the community doesn’t know what we are working on, what’s next.

Now we are going to share more about our current work and what we are going to launch in the near term. Hopefully, we’ll get early feedback that will help us to better prioritize and adjust the design of future product releases. The community will know better what to expect from Obyte and developers will know how the platform is going to evolve.

The recent launch of Autonomous Agents on testnet already reveals the major update that is coming next to the production network. To make it clear what other new things are coming to the platform in the near future, we now start a series of What’s next blogs.

The first article speaks about “contracts with arbiters” functionality that we are currently building and expect to add to the platform in the near future. Contracts with arbiters allow for safe arbitrary contracts between two parties backed by a human language text and a trusted arbiter to be called to settle a dispute in case it should arise.

Read the full stories:

tarmo888, sorry you and the boys got banned from /r/cryptocurrency on reddit. Just so you know, linking reddit threads (inside or outside of reddit) is considered vote manipulation/brigading, especially if you are requesting people to go to linked thread and vote or comment. That is against reddit site wide rules. That is why you guys were all banned, not for calling me racist (though I did ban you initially for a few days for calling me FUDster, as we also don't really allow name calling, but not as serious offense as VM/brigading). If you want to ask for ban to be lifted in a few weeks that should be fine. Even though I'm not a fan of byteball, I don't want you to be shut out of /r/cryptocurrency, but you have to play by the rules (or at least not be stupid enough to get caught).
why do they call you racist lol? let me guess, you called them communists? Looks like the byteball team has lost the remnants of common sense  Grin

Because they posted a thread and I commented that one Russian dude controls the network and all undistributed funds. Apparently mentioning network controller's nationality is racist.

Its not. It was an excuse for making u feel sore about not buying a descend pile of byte balls. Side note, Im selling a brand new Hoffman & R dishwasher with nickel side plates and cadmium framed crosswise arms for attacking food leftovers on the edge of ur dish. Nevermind, who cares whether u are jwinterm or juvederm, nevertheless u must be obedient to ur seniors and do as u are told. Buy byte balls win rolls royce.

I have 40 GB on one full node that doesn't accept incoming connections and 43 GB on one full node that does accept incoming connection. Haven't checked where the 3 GB difference comes from, maybe just need to run SQLite VACUUM on the bigger one.

Sports oracle has been updated to work with Autonomous Agents.  Now it can be requested to trigger an AA of your choice.  The AA, in turn, can process a payout to the winner of the bet, thus making it unnecessary to manually claim the winnings.  This is just one example of what an AA can do, developers are welcome to come up with other ideas and participate in the contest.

Personally, I think Obyte team should have plans to expand use cases of Obyte on online casinos. By now, as I know (if I understand correctly) Obyte only provides bet features for personal bets. I do think that if Obyte can get accepted to list on crypto casinos, Obyte, in general, will get lots of benefits (from liquidity, demands, to price movements.). With Obyte fast transaction speed, and does not depend on miners to confirm transactions, I think crypto casinos will like it.

Obyte itself doesn't do bets, 2 persons can make a P2P bet by paring their Obyte wallets or by using a Sports Betting bot in Obyte wallet. Obyte is not between those bets in any other way than just having an oracle that posts sports results to DAG, but anybody could become a sports oracle, which anybody else could use for P2P bets or for their bot, so Obyte being currently also a sports oracle is just to show what is possible, there are some other sport oracles on Obyte, but nothing permanent https://obyte.io/oracles

You get the biggest benefit of using Obyte on some betting platform when you use it's smart-contract capabilities. If you use Obyte just as another payment option on centralized betting platform then it really doesn't make much sense. Any bookie could become a bet maker and provide more liquidity on Sports Betting bot by implementing this API https://github.com/Papabyte/betting-bot-API/blob/master/COMMANDS.md

I know the bet feature through bot in Obyte wallet, that was available in late of 2017 or very early months of 2018 (if I am remembering correctly). I just think that if Obyte team can make partnerships with casinos, that accepted crypto currencies, Obyte project might get some sorts of benefits. There are so many online casinos that accept crypto currencies, and they have been in the forum for years. If such partnerships don't have risks on reputation of Obyte, why not think of it? P2P bets are not enough to expand use cases of Obyte, at least in case of betting.

Meet the first Ocademy workshop graduate

During the past week, developer Tarmo has been doing Obyte workshops in Estonia with a Japanese high school student, Akira.  After 4 days of non-stop workshops, this 16 year old student with no prior Node.js experience left Estonia with many new skills under his belt. A big thanks to Alvar from Bind Creative for making this internship happen.

From this workshop's news, it is the first time I know that @tarmo888 is one of Obyte developers. Previously, I thought @tarmo888 is just a loyal member in Obyte community. I have still waited to get more good news from Obyte Radio Show.
The chart of Obyte gives me strong belief on coming rally of Obyte by itself, and with potentially closely altcoin season. Someone who currently still doubt on probabilty to rally of Obyte and hesitate to invest in Obyte now or in coming weeks, will have to regret about such decision.

You are missing out a lot of news if you just read Bitcointalk thread, you should be subscribed to newsletter, Twitter, Medium or join Discord to be up to date who has done what.

About the price, it is definitely best time than ever to acquire as many Bytes as possible (many probably will regret in the future that they didn't take part of AA developer contest), but the price rally depends on what you are hoping to gain - is it more BTC or USD? Some people here are only after more BTC.

Usually, altcoins lose more BTC value during bear markets because when BTC falls, altcoins fall more. When BTC pumps, altcoins can pump more (BTC ATH was in December 2017, altcoins ATH was in January 2018), but that usually happens with a lag and alts pumps are bigger because they started from lower.
While it is possible that Obyte can do new GBYTE/USD all-time-highs (1k USD per GB is not insane goal to reach again when BTC would be 100k USD - 3x GBYTE/BTC gain), doing new GBYTE/BTC all-time-high is less realistic when BTC/USD is also going up. This means that BTC needs to fail and be replaced by something else in order to make new GBYTE/BTC all-time-high, which I don't think will happen in near future.
Maybe a new GBYTE/BTC all-time-high is possible when BTC becomes stable SOV, which probably don't happen before next 10 years either, so until then enjoy your USD gains with alts.

I don't remember saying that when the price was $275 per GBYTE (when I started contributing code to Obyte in April 2018), which IMHO should be fair price for it now, but thanks to FUDsters, it is much lower.
If I did say that when I became officially a part-time developer for Obyte in November 2018 then the prices was already 30-40 range, so it totally makes sense to repeat that, that's dirt cheap and you should get as much as you can at this price.

And maybe that's the difference of you and me - I contribute more code to it as the price goes down, You contribute more FUD as it goes down. And I thank you for that, more bytes to those who actually do something that benefits the project. It's just sad that your FUD is keeping away others from this opportunity, so the only ones who keep benefiting from insane amounts of prize money are the existing community members. https://medium.com/obyte/winners-of-the-first-round-of-the-autonomous-agents-developer-contest-bc8cbbe0d8b4

Most of the activity is on Discord now.  A couple of news that we didn't cross-post to this forum yet:

1. Fabien Marino added to witness list of Obyte default hub
https://medium.com/obyte/fabien-marino-added-to-witness-list-of-obyte-default-hub-5e57865e04bc


It is good that new witnesses are added, but I guess nobody knows these people who are now becoming witnesses. This is not a problem as such, but if I remember well there was once upon a time the idea that also big institutions would partecipate as witnesses (or perhaps this was just in my mind)
Given that times are not mature for that, did you consider trying to get on board as a witness also people who are well known and trusted in the crypto community?
For example Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, who has emerged as one of the quite respected leaders of this space, and has always shown interest towards new projects with new and interesting technology.

As for most of the activity being on Discord that's a pity, since Discord doesn't really leave a quite immutable trail of the history of the discussions like here on BCT. Best place would be a BCT moderated thread, so that any garbage can be filtered out but the meaningful discussions remain and can be read also in future.

Correct, that was the original vision.  However it is not easy to get big institutions as witnesses, that's why decentralization is progressing so slowly.
