** 1 Million BiblePay PODC Giveaway** - **ENDS JANUARY 31st!**



Get rewarded BBP coins for contributing to real CPU Only science research!

PODC = Proof of Distributed Computing

PODC Setup Guide: https://wiki.biblepay.org/PODC_Setup

=

Giveaway Terms and Conditions:

- You must be a PODC researcher, in the biblepay leaderboard as of January 31st, 2020
- You must be contributing to research to the World Community Grid project
- You must have more than 100 RAC (Recent Average Credit)

Reference: https://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=485.0


Looks like we have 59 participants in the leaderboard!

I look forward to calculating the results on block 173,307.

Good luck!

"hash": "ec57a81e053ce1e61b299d4c0168c56d7c0214f817af30b35ddf8ad675209a0f",
ec57 hex = 60503 decimal

Figured out the value of C, but not sure how you applied it to researcher list sans <100 RAC miners.


As far as calculating it, I wrote a tiny vb6 subroutine for this that I will post in the thread and re-use if we have another poll.

LOL, it looks like I won (vout #52 in block 173245).

But since I'm a nice guy I am going to award this to the CPID in position 51 (I'm going to 51 simply because the math of the answer has a floor of 51, and rounding sent it to 52).

I will announce the winner next.

Yes, you should set a give away for Feb 2020 too!

I see the math here.

Code:
Private Sub PODCWinner()
'bbp podc winner
Height = 173307
sblockhash = "ec57a81e053ce1e61b299d4c0168c56d7c0214f817af30b35ddf8ad675209a0f"
C = CLng("&HEC57")
'last gsc transaction before 173307:
'getrawtransaction 0841a3066395229b7c0b2aae6b06f35c57a0df6ddc602ed5919a2c155f783ede 1
SuperBlockCount = 56 'researcher count minus pow miner tx minus sanctuary tx
B = 65535 / SuperBlockCount
A = CInt(C / B)
VOUT = A + 1 'First vout *after* pow and sanctuary - (Note, if we land on a CPID with < 100 RAC, we will move to the next payable ordinal - even if we need to reset the counter from the beginning).
'(This is to discourage people from making fake cpids to get votes)
'Winner = #52 (1 before Rob) : BQWhLA82SxL8PW5LGnwKj8qeog3k3JETBZ (who had a 661.69 reward at height 173245)
End Sub

I contacted EvoNodes to see how much listing will cost. They offer shared MN hosting (like Mint Nodes before they closed). Shared MN may be attractive to investors that don't quite have 4.5M to make a sanctuary.

The want $250 USD for listing. That is about 1.8M BBP at current prices.

I received a $250 refund from SatoshiCoin hosting platform as they were discontinuing the MN hosting business too.

So I will put those $250 myself from that refund.

Please contact me in discord to coordinate this arrangement (if you believe EvoNodes is a good oportunity, if not, we can set those $250 aside for a better MN hosting provider we may find in the future).

I haven't used them before, I see StakingLab has one already for us: https://stakinglab.io/pools/2216 -- assuming the service is reliable and stable, its just a matter of pooling enough BBP to get to 4.55M.

DWS (Dynamic Whale Staking)



Potentially gain 30%+ interest on your coins right now by staking them for one year

With mining, I have to make sure the miners stay updated and are running 24/7, I have to pay for electricity

Similar with a masternode, it has to stay updated and run 24/7, and I have to pay for a server

Staking, you just burn the coins and relax!

Not sure if Feeding America fits into the "efficient" charity threshold... but they spend 76% on Programs relative to overhead and $30 is spent to raise $100.

https://www.charitywatch.org/charities/feeding-america

I bring this up because Swagbucks is offering 1000 swagbucks back (each SB is worth $0.01, so $10) if you donate a minimum of $18.

Just need to find offers that scale better and can apply to many for an extended period of time (like match offers, etc to amplify giving).

Updated the graph on DWS burns vs rewards. I stacked the bar graph. Red is the amount you burned. Green is the net gain you receive (assuming no superblock issues). The yellow is the DWU unit which is the percentage net gain. As you can see, as more BBP enters the BBP pool, the DWU starts to decline.



No one knows how the economics of sanctuary rewards will change in the next 12 months with RandomX merged mining. For now, the trend with sanctuary rewards look positive. If that remains the 7day ROI is better than DWS.

For now, the trend looks good. I would argue, if you are optimistic with the last 7day ROI, sanctuary rewards pay better than DWS. If you are more conservative and look at the last 90 days, then after the cost server hosting, I'd argue it is on par with current DWS pay out rates. If you have funds to create a sanctuary for 4.55M BBP, you can receive rewards and decide later to dissolve it later if you want a predictable ROI based on the DWU value (net percentage gain).

As of yesterday:
SanctuaryCostUSD: $1,002.97   
ROI_90d 24.5%
ROI_60d 24.5%
ROI_30d 27.9%
ROI_7d 38.9%

Ok, yes, let's offer another 1 million reward for the February 2020 (PODC jumpstart giveaway).

Feel free to promote it Sun, Togo and any others who have been spreading the word.

I'm sorry I haven't been on to reply in the last two days, but I've been very busy with the RandomX integration in testnet.  I will post an update on the poll thread very soon.

From what I can tell, the RandomX concept is going to work, and we will most likely have something to test in testnet within 7 days.

Random: I liked your idea on doing a snapshot of Dash and rewarding Dash holders with free BBP,
to entice Dash users into learning about us and potentially becoming investors

HEX token did this with Bitcoin, but with some twists,
they penalized Bitcoin whales, addresses with over 1k Bitcoin receive less HEX
they set a decreasing reward as time goes by, to incentivize claiming sooner than later
and they auto-stake 90% of the HEX for a year, so that claimers cant just dump it right away

"Over $1.5 Billion dollars of Bitcoin has claimed their free HEX. 168k+ BTC across 24k+ addresses"

And a cool thing, I got to learn how to sign a message with my wallet,
and this also rewarded me for having my Bitcoin off of any exchanges and in my full control
"not your keys, not your coins!"

(Please backup your wallet.dat file! https://www.reddit.com/r/BiblePay/comments/7lksp4/backup_walletdat/)

EDIT: Is there any way we could do some sort of referral system?

=

EDIT 2: Have we used the email list of the biblepay pool to update past users of latest changes?

Just received this message when I did an exec rac:

"Error": "Your CPID is linked to your CPK, but we are unable to find your research records in WCG; most likely because you are not in team BiblePay yet.",

I've been doing just fine over the last several days without being in team Biblepay.  Was the team restriction changed again?  Thanks!

the wcg.rac file seems to be truncated. Normally, it is around 2.3MB (with over 25k CPIDs) but the current file in my bbp folder is 105kB with less than 1k CPIDs.

Ok, looking at this issue (not linked cpids, truncated CPID info):

The problem has been resolved.  (The technical reason was the WCG info we read was cut off at that particular time - but when rescanned - all data came in).

So as a user, if you want immediate results please restart biblepay and let it re-load the cpids - then exec rac should work - or you can simply wait ~4 hrs, and during the next block cycle (within 102 blocks) it will repopulate the leaderboard.  (The sancs will automatically repopulate at the next mid-cycle).

** BIBLEPAY POOL ADMINISTRATORS BULLETIN **


All pools:

Due to the RandomX development initiative, POBH will (most likely) have a shortened lifespan (IE < 6 months left before it retires).
So please be aware of the following plan to transition to the RandomX algorithm:

The current POBH pools have been forked to:
https://github.com/biblepay/node-open-mining-portal-pobh
https://github.com/biblepay/node-stratum-pool-pobh

No code changes have been made to POBH so there is no need to do anything.  Please be aware however, not to git pull the latest until we are live in prod with randomx.
As the current repos will be transitioned over to RandomX.  If you need to start a new pool or repair your pool please change your github URLs to the above urls for pobh.

The next steps:
I will be creating more repos and a testnet endeavor for RandomX. 
My goal is to have testnet ready by the end of this weekend.


All:  NOTE:  We need your help to test the BBP RandomX branch!

Did anyone else miss the superblock reward because of this? My wallet sent a GSC transmission at block 174559, but I did not receive the payment at 174680. Sad
