On another note I am sure many people have had the opportunity to review the architecture of this new blockchain-less approach to the consensus algorithm.  Has anyone been able to find and articulate any potential security problems or shortfalls?



Yep, just a few of them:

1. Full node stores the whole DAG data which means it isn't that much more scalable in comparison to blockchain without blocksize limit (e.g. Monero). It has the same limitation related to hardware storage capacity and bandwidth.

2. Witnesses control the network. And they are only 12 of them. If they form a cartel they can start censor the network or do other malicious behavior. Getting rid of witnesses cartel is hard - the network needs to split which is called "schism". Read the whitepaper for more info.

3. Blackbyte are not fully anonymous. When you send them you reveal your IP to hub. TOR implementation is work on to mitigate the problem. Eventually (if implemented) blackbyte would be as anonymous as TOR is anonymous which is not 100%. Monero is much more anonymous.

4. Whitebyte are fully transparent just as bitcoin blockchain. You can check the senders holdings just by going to DAG explorer. There are no plans to make them less susceptible to analysis and therefore more fungible.

5. Data storing feature is very limited due to cost. It's basically just a little text storing feature. Take a look at my calculations to see why.



I thought the second was the most obvious one and, in fact, it is. And given the other features that's a bit problematic. I thought of using TOR for BB but as you pointed out that's just as anonymous as TOR can be. Monero wins on that side.
Would be nice to hear something from tonych..

1./5. its a datastorage system. its minimal, otherwise its getting expensive, price of transaction is very low and will always be.

2. Witnesses are owning max 8% of voting capacity. An Attack has to be proven successful. Time will tell as this is a completely decentralised open source project

3. building on top of a system with ip address, you can use TOR. Can be the witnesses being eliminated by ip blocking? If no, then the system is Anonymous. It can be used anonymous besides ip address problem. Its maybe not for your need, but of millions chinese people.

what about GBB? i know tonych is not in favour for that, but its just a matter of time. the first thing would be a decentralised way of trade, but for that you need a GUI.

Hello, how can i link my btc address to byteball? Thanks
take a look, this is a Tutorial: linking Ledger wallet Nano S to Byteball account via signing a message with Electrum made by @hermesesus
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.msg17160291#msg17160291
Because this is a second distribution you need to read post from @tonych
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1608859.msg17566450#msg17566450
I missed the first distribution and still repent it.Is it going to work same this time too as earlier? like we will get equal number of byteball to the amount of btc?

Is it possible to convert blackbytes to bytes, or send them to an exchange in order to sell?

I thought about copying my deposit adress from cryptox to a byteball client and then send this adress via chat to the client that holds the blackbytes. I would then be able to send them to the deposit adress. Would that work out?

1. You must be delirious, using Monero block size limit as an argument. Of course it doesn't need a 1 MB limit if you are 0.99 MB from crossing it. Show me a network capable of throughputting 1 MB in both blocks and mempool every 10 minutes (2 minutes in case of monero) to 5000 nodes ranging from mobile phones to laptops. You cannot, not in 2017.

2+3. Just a pile of lies. Ring signatures do not secure anonymity and require additional processing (times number of signers). You use an argument against witnesses in point 2, yet you use the argument of ring signatures in point 3 - how many participants does a ring signature require in monero implementation? 3? whole network?

Now both my devices have the latest version and are synced. The app on my Android device doesn't crash anymore, my blackbytes transaction appears in the history and blackbytes are missing from the balance.

It is even more weird than the previous error.  Did you try to reboot it?

Yes I did restart the app and then reboot both my phone and my PC, nothing changed.

The full wallet on my 64-bit Windows 10, however, doesn't seem to have received the blackbytes, they do neither show in the balance nor in the history.

Was is supposed to receive blackbytes?  Did it have linked addresses?

Yes, my pc's app has linked addresses, received blackbytes from the distribution and from other devices and has some on it. My phone's app also has linked addresses, didn't receive blacks from the distrib (which is normal) but received blacks from my pc's app.

No, you have to link two wallets by invitation code to transfer any blackbytes.

Happy to have joined the Signature campaign!

It's actually the first signature campaign I've ever done with my account.

Payout seems good, it's an awesome project and it will get me to do some writing and interaction!

what exactly are the benefits of bigger exchanges? cryptox is really fine!

why is everyone just focusing on the exchanges? what about the upcoming features?

Well, volume sucks so there's a big ass spread. You think 15% difference between buys and sells is ideal? Also, their site sucks, they don't even show volume for last 24 hrs, but eyeballing orders looks like just a couple BTC worth.

Lets give it some time. Even politicans get one hundred days to prove themselves  Wink things you mentioned are technicalities that simply needs to be worked out. I remember, when Monero had total market cap of couple million with only Poloniex - buggy as hell at that time, trading it. This is pretty smooth next to it.

Byteball has very good and workaholic developer, nice whitepaper and coin phylosophy (i mean idea of the project). Give it time and a little bit later every big exchanger will list it for free. Like they listed Ethereum and Dash. Everything will be in near future  Cool

Byteball is great but I'm still wondering about the Blackbytes.  Somewhat confused why tony choose to add this and not focus solely on the new tech itself. 

For anonymity I'd go with a coin that focuses exclusively on being anonymous.

Im getting free balls to all my linked addresses and dont know what to do with them. I sent part of my shares to vaticans pope and dispensed a big chunk to charity. Hell this shit is more worthless than lisk and wings altogether.

  how many participants does a ring signature require in monero implementation? 3? whole network?

If i right understand your question, monero ring signature uses whole network to anonimize your payment. But I can be don't right, because i didn't read monero whitepaper and saw it's code. If you right, please correct me. I ll be very glad)

I thought the second was the most obvious one and, in fact, it is. And given the other features that's a bit problematic. I thought of using TOR for BB but as you pointed out that's just as anonymous as TOR can be. Monero wins on that side.
Would be nice to hear something from tonych..

TOR makes a lot of sense in cryptocurrencies whose ledgers are public, because it prevents other connected nodes from linking your transactions to your IP address.  When you are paying in blackbytes, your transaction is visible only to the payee, and usually you are not even connected to the payee directly, you communicate over a hub.  This means that, even when TOR is off in your Byteball client:
- unrelated third-parties learn nothing
- the payee can learn your IP only in two cases: you are connected directly or the payee colludes with the hub
Turning TOR on (available in headless clients, will be supported soon in GUI clients) removes the above risk.

Differences with Monero:
- Monero doesn't hide amounts, blackbytes do.
- Strictly speaking, ring signatures used in Monero only obfuscate information about the sender, don't completely hide it.  Blackbytes truly hide all information.  This is not to say obfuscation is always something of subpar quality, good obfuscation can be as good as hiding for all practical purposes.

That said, I think the anonymity features of Monero are already good enough for most users, the real game changer is usability, where imho Byteball shines.  And it is not just about anonymity.

Monero does hide amounts now, actually, with the recent hardfork to allow ring confidential transactions (CT) transactions on mainnet. Also, as you point out ring signatures only obfuscate, but In conjunction with stealth addresses, you can achieve an anonymity set in the millions with maybe ten "hops".

IMO "hubs" sound like more of a vulnerability than a plus, as maybe counterparty might not know your IP, but the hub could be logging everyone's IP that connects.

Anyway, agree that usability is key, especially for byteball where there is less emphasis on decentralization and trustlessness.
