Send the receiver's address using "Insert address" from the receiver's chat interface. Click on that address in the sender's chat interface and normally you should be able to choose blackbytes and send them. As HCP pointed out, you need bytes to pay for the transaction fees.

How should someone guess that? I mean, there is no instructions whatsoever for doing something lile that. I understand the idea of Byteball is to be easy to use to pursue mass user adoption, but that's certainly not easy unless you know the trick.
And by the way, it didn't work. I am getting now a mistake in red color:
"Impossible to send the payment: precommit callback failed: [a string of text]: conflicting spend proof in inner unit [a string of text]"

When you are stuck you try other things, you click wherever you can until something works ... Having said that, nobody's asking you to guess anything, that's why you can ask here and/or on Slack and people will help you. You actually didn't tell me what you did. For instance, I don't even know if you clicked the send button, copied the address you want to send to, selected blackbytes and were unable to send. It's interesting how you seem to be pissed off after receiving help Smiley.

Anyway, back to the help Smiley. Do you have the latest release on both devices? Are both of them synced?

I was not pissed off with you, sorry if I've given this impression. In fact, thank you for your help.

No problem and you are welcome Smiley.

4. Following your instructions I could actually get the destination address to appear in the field where you usually would get it by the way of the drop down menu, but as I've clicked send I've got the mistake: "Impossible to send the payment: precommit callback failed: [a string of text]: conflicting spend proof in inner unit [a string of text]"

Sounds like the "bytes" you have are possibly not valid... due to being used in another transaction. Not sure if it's referring to the "normal" bytes or the "blackbytes".

So, do you know if you are trying to send blackbytes that are no longer available? Did you at some point restore from an old backup or have the same wallet (same seed) running on more than one device or anything that you think could have somehow corrupted one or both the wallets?


It's not a big sum of blackbytes, it's worth 4$ in total now so it's not even worth the time of writing this post. But the point is that if there is a problem it must be solved, if we care about Byteball.

 #19062

The distribution to the Venezuelan university comes in two steps.

The initial idea was to host a Use-a-Thon, where students can enter a contest with prizes in bytes worth about $800 - which is comparatively much money to any student. Arranging such contest had the implication, that contestants would need bytes to experiment with transfers etc. so Tony suggested their domain was added to the white list of the email attestation bot, allowing all students to claim the $10 worth of bytes as reward.

The word spread like wild-fire and people were all over the place offering to pay other students to attest their email to get the referral reward (also worth $10) and that resulted in a complete craze. We had more than than 4000 attestations from students at the university.

What I believe is the best thing about this is, that while some will of course sell it as soon as they get it, others might hold on for a while. This allows the projects of the Use-a-Thon to materialize which suddenly makes their bytes spendable in actual use cases developed by the participants of the Use-a-Thon.

I've seen the suggestions about expanding the concept to other universities in developing countries where the $10 is comparatively worth more than ie. the US or EU. And this has been the plan right from the get go of this initiative.

At the moment, we're gathering information and experience from this first edition of the Byteball Use-a-Thon, which is definitely needed in order to expand to more universities. We encounter problems and questions on a daily basis, that we hadn't thought of, and some of the events at the university couldn't possibly have been foreseen. We also quickly came to the conclusion, that in order for the initiative to have more effect, it would be a smart move to also reward a team of documentarists. During the period of the Use-a-Thon, they will take pictures, do short interviews and/or video clips that will help us build the case when presenting it to other universities.

We also currently ran into the problem, that the university's mail server actually blacklisted the byteball.org domain (any decent spam filter would probably consider thousands of almost identical emails sent from the same address in a few days a text-book example of spam) so we had to get contacts from the Student Council and the on-site coordinating professor meet with the IT department of the university to explain the reason for this.

All in all, there's simply just SO many things, that we discover and learn from doing this, that it wouldn't be plausible to host multiple contests at this point in time. I wouldn't be exaggerating if I say that me and the two other organizers spend somewhere between 3 and 4 hours a day, sorting out issues, having correspondence with university representatives and making needed decisions on things we hadn't thought of before the contest was announced.

My long term dream is to run a series of contests at several universities in a broad range of developing countries. Then - have a huge inter-university contest, where all winning teams will compete against winning teams from other universities in one major Use-a-Thon. That one should of course have a massive prize pool, and preferably include some kind of event, where participants are invited to attend some kind of event where winners will be announced. All contestants would have their travel and living expenses covered. But this is a long term dream, and at this point in time, not feasible. But who knows what the future will bring Smiley

As soon as we start receiving material from the documentary team at the Universidad Simòn Bolìvar, we will start publishing articles and news on the progress, so stay tuned, and if possible, lend a helping hand with whatever the students might request help with. There's plenty to do, and I must say, that being able to directly affect the adoption of the Byteball project is really amazing! This is only possible with smaller projects like Byteball before they grow too big. Had this been an Ethereum-effort, it would simply be a drop in the ocean. I therefore highly encourage everyone to contribute and come up with cool ideas. The Byteball Grants program is open for everyone with great ideas. So get started! Smiley

Cheers!

Are there any other developers officially on the Byteball team or is this still a one man show?

Yes there are. Last time I checked (which was a very long time ago), there were two more developers.

What that means is now BYTEBALL uncertain in pengang by which development team, I see it seems currently BYTEBALL mutually replace the team of developers.

The easiest way to find out how many programmers are actively programming is checking the Github repository. 20 people have contributed code so far. Some are less or more active but there is around one dozen developers which are contributing regularly. Check out here https://github.com/byteball/byteball/graphs/contributors

4. Following your instructions I could actually get the destination address to appear in the field where you usually would get it by the way of the drop down menu, but as I've clicked send I've got the mistake: "Impossible to send the payment: precommit callback failed: [a string of text]: conflicting spend proof in inner unit [a string of text]"

Sounds like the "bytes" you have are possibly not valid... due to being used in another transaction. Not sure if it's referring to the "normal" bytes or the "blackbytes".

So, do you know if you are trying to send blackbytes that are no longer available? Did you at some point restore from an old backup or have the same wallet (same seed) running on more than one device or anything that you think could have somehow corrupted one or both the wallets?


In fact I have made a little mess, after your comment I've realized it, the wallet with the blackbytes to be transferred I have just discovered was an old FULL node wallet which I've opened with a light wallet app just by renaming the data folders - it's quite logic it wouldn't work I guess. To get it work I suppose I should restore an old backup. Well, this would be good news, it means no bugs in Byteball wallet and some bugs just in my mind Smiley

because sellers can't find a buyers at this price and are not yet ready to sell at the lower price
or buyers can't find a sellers at this price and are not yet ready to buy at the higher price
or all who wanted to sell have already sold, and all who wanted to buy already bought
Quote
such a big coin.
not really big, there only 15btc in buy orders. If you have 100 btc in this coin, unlikely you will get even 1/2 after the dump. Very little coin, not big

They are having some API issues with the WCG site due to the GDPR going into effect from May 25th... Basically, they can't get a list of the work done by the team members, so they can't pay rewards. Once that gets sorted out, they'll be able to backpay for all the work done.

!!!ATTENTION - STUDENTS AT USB!!!

After the byteball.org domain was blacklisted by the mailserver at Universidad Simòn Bolìvar, there has been a meeting with representatives from FCEUSB, the university management and the IT department.

Due to unfortunate events, we have been asked to remove the usb.ve domain from the white list of the email attestation bot.

It will no longer be possible to receive attestation rewards or referral rewards for email-accounts on the usb.ve domain.
We are truly sorry about it, but Byteball cannot risk causing any harm to individuals or IT-systems.
The whitelisting has been removed now as requested by University officials.
