So u r against unique people-readable names but not against machine-readable ones. Got it, now ur idea looks less utopian.

Yes - I am looking for "practical solutions" that support "decentralisation" rather than ideas that support "name squatting and scamming".

And I think .onion paved the way.


Haha, finally after weeks of debating... Grin

Love you guys.

Potential end result...  Nxt Alias Sacrifice!!!     Cheesy

I doubt. Number of normal people is much higher than number of geeks, so unique aliases will stay longer than CIYAM wants. Smiley

Maybe unique human readable Aliases should not be in the core but instead exist as 'something' on top of Nxt? Or is it the speciality of Nxt to have human readable 'codes' in the core? Is Nxt more human than bitcoin? Shocked

Quote
PGP supports message authentication and integrity checking. The latter is used to detect whether a message has been altered since it was completed (the message integrity property) and the former to determine whether it was actually sent by the person or entity claimed to be the sender (a digital signature). Because the content is encrypted, any changes in the message will result in failure of the decryption with the appropriate key. The sender uses PGP to create a digital signature for the message with either the RSA or DSA algorithms. To do so, PGP computes a hash (also called a message digest) from the plaintext and then creates the digital signature from that hash using the sender's private key.

be sure with RSA

Main article: Random number generator attack
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_number_generator_attack

Quote
Since much cryptography depends on a cryptographically secure random number generator for key and cryptographic nonce generation, if a random number generator can be made predictable, it can be used as backdoor by an attacker to break the encryption.
The NSA is reported to have inserted a backdoor into the NIST certified cryptographically secure pseudorandom number generator Dual_EC_DRBG. If for example an SSL connection is created using this random number generator, then according to Matthew Green it would allow NSA to determine the state of the random number generator, and thereby eventually be able to read all data sent over the SSL connection.[12] Even though it was apparent that Dual_EC_DRBG was a very poor and possibly backdoored pseudorandom number generator long before the NSA backdoor was confirmed in 2013, it had seen significant usage in practice until 2013, for example by the prominent security company RSA Security.[13] There have subsequently been accusations that RSA Security knowingly inserted a NSA backdoor into its products, possibly as part of the Bullrun program. RSA has denied knowingly inserting a backdoor into its products.[14]
It has also been theorized that hardware RNGs could be secretly modified to have less entropy than stated, which would make encryption using the hardware RNG susceptible to attack. One such method which has been published works by modifying the dopant mask of the chip, which would be undetectable to optical reverse-engineering.[15] For example for random number generation in Linux, it is seen as unacceptable to use Intel's RdRand hardware RNG without mixing in the RdRand output with other sources of entropy to counteract any backdoors in the hardware RNG. Especially after the revelation of the NSA Bullrun program.[16][17]

I will say this, be very careful with who you think might have good intuition to steer decisions on usability features, just because an engineer is great does not mean that engineer understands ease of use / usability and or marketing that will bring wide spread use to any particular system....Engineers for the most part have this tunnel vision where its very difficult for them to see why making things intuitive and easy to use is high priority, if you know anything about steve jobs, this was why he was obsessed with design and usability first, And was extremely mean to engineers who did not understand these basics.

That said, I think we need Unique aliases,asset names there other measures which could be implemented to make it easy to upkeep or transfer these names. Point is we are not building a niche product for engineers, we are building a platform so that more people can intuitively use. I think we need a "product development /user experience" committee...Its a critical mistake I see been made over and over again: letting engineers make user experience design decisions. I am not saying they can't but those that can, need to be able to see the world OBJECTIVELY

Since it seems most of the technical individuals are here, i posted this on Nxt Forums.

C++/Qt Developer needed
We are in need of an experienced and trusted community member to join us in one of our projects. Basic concept is integrating an established open source software with a nxt service. More info will be divulged upon further private conversations and agreement of non disclosure until the project is in beta. Please PM for more info.

Chosen Developer will receive 50-100k Nxt plus % ownership upon completion of project.

Ok....I really like this web 2.0 .....DB's on parallel chains but these chains will still need to be run on servers somewhere in the world.

We are gonna still need heavy duty servers for "HUBS" in the network.

Edit: But I think the world will be completely different once graphene becomes widespread....plus the "Internet of things"....CRYPTO's and especially AT's are perfect for the "Internet of things".

Intelligent toll booths....driverless taxi companies....autonomous mass transit systems.

Hi Guys,

Newbie problem/question so please bear with me

I installed the windows version of the NXT client yesterday from http://nxtra.org/nxt-wallet/ and funded it with a small amount of NXT. I now can't find it on my PC. There's no reference to it in the programs folder where I would have expected to find it and no link on the desktop or in the tray at the bottom of the screen. When I do a search of my PC all I can find is the NXTWallet-Win Zip folder. My OS is Windows XP.

Where's the client gone?  Huh

TIA for any help.  Smiley

Do you still have the password? then your funds are safe!

Your program is wherever you unpacked the zip file. It does not install itself in program files or add shortcuts.

So basically if he ran it directly out of the zip, then it is/was only stored in the %TEMP% folder. Just reinstall it then and save it this time, then you should be fine!

Thanks for the fast responses.

Yes, I did run it directly out of the zip and sorry to say never realised i needed to manually save it. I've checked the Temps folder but can't find it. I did though save the auto generated pass phrase so if I ever do find the missing client, I can get my NXT back but it was only a small amount so not a problem. Meanwhile I'll install a new client and this time save it! Thanks again for the help Smiley

The client is completely independent from your passphrase. You can reinstal the client and just use your old password to access your NXTs. They are still there. The concept is called brainwallet, and with your password you can access your funds from everywhere in the world without any files needed!

Please consider that no serious developer will code anything if you don't give them an advance (usually 33~50% of the final sum), and this is in the real world were you can be sued if you don't pay... here in altcoin world I would ask many many small installments for every single step I code.
HTH.

Is it True then that your AE system can buy . sell . anything ? such as pictures , videos and drugs. ?


No, the AE stands for asset exchange, and you will be able to buy things like stocks or other currencies.

Did you not read my post? Developer will receive 50-100k Nxt + %, not sure how you missed that. I'm quite familiar with real world projects and how to implement them as that is what i do in the real world. If you were attempting to educate me, thank you.


After re-reading my post:
I see how that could have been taken wrong, the way I worded it. The 50-100k Nxt is during development, the % is a perk after completion.

Come come is the platform just a Escrow service then ?
