And regarding my proposal for a CNAME from faucet.mastercoin.org?

faucet.bitwatch.co goes currently to a webhost. I was looking for ways to process the payout. My first idea was to generate the raw transactions via PHP (which works perfectly fine) and then sign and push them, but I'm stuck at the point where the tx are signed. Therefore I came to the conclusion that I do want to run my own bitcoind instance on a VPS. faucet.bitwatch.co is probably not final and I was also thinking about purchasing mastercoin-faucet.com or mastercoinfaucet.com.

Please make sure you use multisig transactions.

Yes, of course. Dispite the frown I also want to generate tx that send the change to the 1-of-2 output to minimize wasted coins (= 1 input [sender], 3 output [exodus, receiver, 1-of-data/sender]).. even if those tx take a while to be confirmed (it's not that bad), this can be countered by using a pool of multiple payout addresses.

i think you ought to explain here that Mastercoin address is a Bitcoin address, and that the address should either come from blockchain.info wallet (maybe even link to the blockchain wallet set up page) or bitcoin-qt.

Agreed. There needs to a some more explaination anyway, like a smallish tutorial how a user can use their MSC and generate transactions.

Can this be done from Blockhain.info account? I can't get the Bitcoin QT on my hardrive (using only SSD), it eats too much of space (although i'm not even sure it needs to sync fully for this to be done).

I think blockchain.info is able to generate signed messages, yes. Another great thin-client that allows signing is Electrum (www.electrum.org).

does your code check if they subscribe to http://www.reddit.com/r/mastercoin? or just checks karma?

No, it just checks karma. I think making it a requirement (if this is even possible) would be too intrusive, same goes for Facebook and potential MSC pages or groups. But this brings me to the idea to suggest users to join the FB group and to subscribe to the subreddit! Smiley

I tested this just now, using the Bitcointalk version.

Says I have an invalid address...  

I entered in the first box my correct Bitcointalk PM user link and it does have a BTC address posted in profile.

Also used my Bitcoin QT Wallet to get my signature for the BTC address and entered that in the second box...

Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a normal error message since its in testing?

Thanks!

Invalid address? You mean "invalid signature", right?

Please try:

Link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=104899
Signature: HDnUuQqQoHEJoJPiPMbHKGlWvCm5bmilfNfOB4IVo/UafJE8Zikg8tqfdkuLdULSFki5dEjw5uj8UhG08Xa1co8=

Does this work? Smiley

I'm a little behind schedule, sorry for that. I have quite a busy week.

Here is the good news: I now have a VPS with bitcoind running and purchased mastercoin-faucet.com. The website is not yet transferred and still hosted on the webhost, accessible via faucet.bitwatch.co, so the only missing step is going live with the payout module enabled.

Sorry again for the delay, I'll keep you updated. Smiley

Yes that works fine entering your info.

Wondering if this could be the problem... my Bitcoin Wallet is still syncing with 20 weeks to go...as its been off for a while.
Does the wallet have to be synced for this to work?


I would make one suggestion, I was confused with your instructions for entering the Signature part... you did not indicate that we needed
to go to our Bitcoin wallets for this, and a noob like me had to come here to this thread to figure it out. Maybe you could add a blurb about
"Open your bitcoin wallet and retrieve your signature, and enter it in the second box here...."  Smiley

Keep up the most excellent work!!

Your client doesn't need to be in sync, the faucet just scans your profile and grabs the Bitcoin address and then compares the signature for the message "Mastercoin faucet". But you are right and you are not the first one who said it's difficult.

What do you think about this:

To authenticate via bitcointalk.org the user would need to put a generated text into his profile for a short moment.

For example: "Please put the text ##MSCFAUCET10109818181## somewhere in your profile and submit your profile link"

The faucet then would only need to scan the profile and check, if the text "##MSCFAUCET10109818181##" exists somewhere. Would that be easier and preferred?

Edit: thanks for testing by the way, very appreciated!

I think the message embeded in profile is far easier and cleaner approach. Especially if we do not happen to have access to our btc wallets while getting authorized.

Be happy to test it for you  Smiley

Any more updates coming for this?

Nice! Wink


1. The website is now http://mastercoin-faucet.com.

2. Payouts are enabled. 40-50x 0.0001 Test Mastercoin are available and distributed via 5 rotating addresses. I'll add a few more, if there are no problems. Please try crazy things, so potential leaks are uncovered.

3. One reward per authentication method and user account. There are no checks to prevent a user to redeem multiple rewards via different accounts.. yet.

4. The message signing authentication for bitcointalk.org will probably be replaced with one-time-token strings.

5. Too bad that transactions with a multi sig input and no additional change address are not accepted like this transaction, but on the other hand those weired tx are not very nice to handle anyway. It 0.0002092 BTC transportation cost vs. 0.0003184 BTC for regular transactions.


Cheers! Smiley

Yup, sorry.. I did something stupid and now I'm downloading the whole blockchain again... Undecided

Well anyway, don't grind all test MSC please. Grin

The $0.1-$0.5 rewards will come, but I want to do some tests with less value first. Wink

Ah, thanks. Initially there were tx with a fee of 0.00009999 BTC which didn't confirm and I sent out the tx manually again. Yours was one of them.

Not confirmed:
https://blockchain.info/tx/6ac69ed30c7599351ed416fe195aa724361919988588263fecdb974b91a5750c

Manual resend:
https://blockchain.info/tx/735bd357b0ce7d684d53b10a0cb108663739c0e6a1d9f850880e20def218a2ec

This tx has the data address 1Dpuuq4as1nBUbtw8WaEvdzPuCJCT4c8hW, which is invalid and should actually be 1JKyyt9rbsb5TagFEFk8Z6sHo4bwUwYdv7, so it seems that I created an invalid tx manually.

I fagged your tx and you should be able to claim this reward again. I'd apprechiate, if you try again, it should be fine now. Smiley

I'm running the bounty.
dexX7 - when you officially launch and are fully tested, please email info@mastercoin.org with details on the product, what was done, how it was tested, and how much real world usage it sees (stas + Google Analytics would be great).

We can then evaluate on our end and award you your bounty.
Do you need some amount to fuel the faucet itself, for now?
You can email J.R and ask him for some MSC and TEST MSC to fuel this.
