Therefore, foundation wallet gets 1/10th of invitation rewards of what users get for theirs, and on top of that, those rewards are not private, they're used for funding community work.
In a world where there is a premine in 34 000 000 coins, there should not be any additional rewards, whatever they are spent on. There is a premine - use it.

In a world where there's a premine of 36 mil. (not 34, to be correct), you can choose to stay away from the project.

But I can only see that you're actually in the project but wanting more from FUD and buying more at lower prices.

Just walk away from this "scam premine" and let us who believe in it be rewarded for staying.

Preminted coins should not receive additional income. In no form.
And it doesn’t matter that you called it "Foundation", it’s still part of the preminted coins!
A premine can have only one clear, fixed number of coins.

In a world where there's a premine of 36 mil. (not 34, to be correct), you can choose to stay away from the project.

But I can only see that you're actually in the project but wanting more from FUD and buying more at lower prices.

You can answer only that.
What else to expect from greed?
When you do not like something, you always expel everyone from your coin and call it spam, FUD, trolling and so on.
Because greedy.
I have not ever seen such impudence when the preminted coins receive additional income in the form of rewards.
Increasing premine ... this is f*cking nonsense ...

They are not considering a rollback: https://medium.com/idena/may-30-2020-idena-validation-incident-report-e1c8ebd56ded

Looks like they are just happy this incident happened:


What a shame..
For start, I and my 10 friends and family members around me that are in Idena were all suspended Cheesy But they did not see this as a catastrophie, because I have told them from the start that this is experimental and problems are to be expected. For testing of this experimental program, you will get rewards, so much reward in one day that people who will come one year from now will not be able to get in one month.
So I bet that those who passed, mining is good for them Smiley Not for me.

So if you take that joke out of context, it might look like that. On discord we have #offtopic channel where we try to have fun in even the most difficult times. And that channel contains some hardcore dark/sarcastic/ironic humor, so if you are not into that, that's ok, but don't go there as it will confuse you.

Also here are some jokes that you have maybe missed (and probably won't be funny to you):
- idena, highlander edition (If you are younger, watch Highlander series of movies)
- hardfork is 30sec into short session
- if we get to zombie, we go to eat devs brain
- I would pay to have my face expresion in picture after validation, when i saw there is no mining toggle button Cheesy At first I was thinking my window is too small and try to resize it
- imagine we did not get suspended but killed by the bug?
- its bummer that i made that pre validation checkup guide and 2k nodes failed, maybe everyone synced time and network kaboom (this refers to my post that i made 2 day before validation, its on the end of this post)

It is clearly stated that this is experimental, that we are still testing, and for that testing we get reward. But as it is experimental, bugs can happen.
So you have to think about, what should now be best for project?
A: try to work on a rollback that will take much time and effort, and maybe produce bigger bugs and set us back more
B: work on a fix/solution so we can move forward and it won't happen again
So instead of moving backwards, we are moving forward and not loosing more time and potential rewards.

I'm here from december and this was my 20th validation, and first problem caused by network. That is not bad at all, in my opinion, for experimental program/tech as Idena is.
This is just my opinion, but I understand others view on this.

As members on discord are trying to be funny (humor is good thing), and not view this as some sort of cathastrophie, we have temporarly changed our nicknames to reflect this situation.


In other news, I have written a post about what to check and consider. But in light of recent things I will have to change VPS guide, suggest VPS providers who support temporary upscaling. I think that temp upscaling from 1GB to 2GB ram would solve our problems.


This is $5 digital ocean vps. Take a look on its cpu load and memory. First image is state of vps when node has been working for 5 days or so. It takes up all ram, goes to swap, cpu goes crazy, and for 1cpu, load of 2.1 is heavy. After restart of node, it clears up ram for some time and load goes down to 1.14 or so...

This and vps guide have to change, I will try and see the best way for this...
Take 5 minutes and read Pre-validation setup check
http://idena.site/faq_tutorials.php#answer12
It will give you advices on what to check, so you can avoid potential problems during validation.
Hopefully it will lead to less validation issues and more validated identities.
Good luck on your validation.

Edit: Biggest bummer is for Newbie members who did not reach verified to be only suspended, they lost (not talking about potential reward but realy lost what they had) about 400 dna or so... and for me that is biggest problem and most difficault thing in this situation.

There is nothing funny in recent events and in general. The greed of the developers is amazing.
1. Absolutely unfair punishment for reported flips.
If someone doesn't know, then for reported flips, you completely lose the reward.
You will not be rewarded for successful validation, for invited users and for flips. Is it fair? No.
A poll was taken. Only the votes of identified users were counted.
Quote
Should Idena:
A. Leave the current system of penalties. One reported flip = loss of all rewards from validation.
B. Use a proportional system of fines for bad flips.  1 bad flip - 1 unpaid reward, 2 bad flips = 2 unpaid rewards, etc. And all rewards are not rejected for bad flips.
1) A.
0x0adc1dc970b0750e253ec97b4a9e3c85c04dedac (https://scan.idena.io/address?address=0x0adc1dc970b0750e253ec97b4a9e3c85c04dedac)
2) B.
0x818c464ea1bbf2d5212a2c8dead3971e5636405b (https://scan.idena.io/address?address=0x818c464ea1bbf2d5212a2c8dead3971e5636405b)
Send small amount of DNA to one of the addresses to vote for associated option.
ONLY VALIDATED IDENTITIES COUNT!
Variant B won - 54.94%.
Where is the reaction of the devs? Nowhere. They are not profitable to give users more coins.
Greed.
2. Because of a bug in the previous validation, due to the fault of the developers, users lost their validation reward, flip reward, invitations reward, mining reward for next 10 days.
Can devs recover these losses? After all, the fault was theirs. Yes, they can, but they accused users of weak hardware. It is unprofitable for them to pay compensation.
Greed.
3. The increasing premine. What the f*ck is this? In what other coin did you see the increasing premine ?! This is f*cking scam. The larger the premine, the lower the value of the coin.
And in this coin, it is constantly increasing!
Greed.
4. When someone suggested increasing the reward for flips so that a person would try to make flips better and be afraid to lose rewards for a bad flip, all sorts of admins and other personalities immediately started laughing at him, calling him stupid and told that no one would give any more coins.
Greed.

And yes, it’s important.

Why do we need an administrator in Telegram chat?
- publish news
- block malicious links
- do not allow political, religious, national abuse
- do not allow personal insults
That's all.

So inform your inadequate hysterical dukabit that this is his terms of reference. And no more.
Chat was not created in order to praise Idena devs and the coin itself.
Any points of view are important and deserve to be.
Freedom of speech.
If someone doesn’t like the coin, let him speak.
If someone doesn't like development work, let him speak.
Admin (dukabit) has no right to threaten someone with a ban, call dumb and put pressure on opinion.
Every time when someone is dissatisfied with something in a coin or devs, it immediately begins - "it is a testnet coin, don't like our coin - leave chat, you're spammer, FUD" and so on.
Go away yourself.
Put your totalitarian in deeper into yourself.

Option B won cause people (you included) are greedy. Simple as that.

But it's easier to say devs are greedy. Grin

Well will you look at that, they revealed the rewards page on their "give out as many invitations as humanly possible (<500)" account after being called on it.

When I asked in a PM about a month ago why they were keeping the rewards, I was ignored and they proceeded to hide the rewards section in that account.

This is a good thing in the right direction towards better transparency. They might claim the project is free for users, but creating those flips = human work + time.

We should be rewarded accordingly and fairly. The people give IDENA 90% of its value, the devs just publish code hoping that someone will use it.

Here it doesn't matter who is greedy or not.

If a situation/proposition was the subject of a vote, and one side won, the devs/team/system should implement the decision, no matter if you/they/anyone like it or not. I don't know the story but if what LaaMos Seeth said is true, that the winning side proposition wasn't implemented, then why they started a vote session in the first place?

Not talking about governance power and stuff. Simply don't do it, because if you do this, is like you said: "Let's vote! But if you win you'll loose anyway" - in other words - let's vote if you wish, as we will piss on the result anyway, because we can.

54% ... I would say "no consensus" rather than win because in statistics, we have something like a small sample error or statistical error, and this 4% is nothing more than that. I'm not surprised that it was not implemented. There are more important things now than satisfying 54% of network at the expense of going against 46%. There are things that will satisfy 100% of network (like sharding, mobile wallet, ledger support, option to encrypt wallet with password etc.)

Maybe it was 54:46 because both options are equally shitty and it is worth to repeat vote with additional option?

I personally prefer option A, because otherwise the network will be full of bad flips.

Let's say you are a human which has about 700 DNA as reward for the last validation. In the first scenario if you make 1 bad flip you will lose all your reward and next time will create better flips. In the second one you'll just lose 15 DNA, which is tiny 2% of your overall reward. You may even don't notice such a penalty and will continue to make bad flips.

If you want some trade off I would suggest the third option C:
C. 1 bad flip = 20% of overall reward unpaid instead of 1 flip reward unpaid like in option B. 20% means 1 flips out of 5 is bad. 40% means 2 out of 5 are bad, etc.

Option B won cause people (you included) are greedy. Simple as that.

But it's easier to say devs are greedy. Grin

1. People spent time on a short session, a long session and verifying keywords. They spent time and effort and successfully passed validation. And they must receive a reward for this.
2. People invited other users to the Idena network and those successfully passed validation. Therefore, inviters should receive rewards for those invited.
3. People made good flips and should get rewards for them.
4. People made bad flips and do not receive rewards for bad flips.
It's easy.
Why for point 4, people lose their rewards for points 1 and 2 ??
The punishment is completely out of proportion.
There is no greed. What is done well must be rewarded. What is done poorly - not.


Here it doesn't matter who is greedy or not.

If a situation/proposition was the subject of a vote, and one side won, the devs/team/system should implement the decision, no matter if you/they/anyone like it or not. I don't know the story but if what LaaMos Seeth said is true, that the winning side proposition wasn't implemented, then why they started a vote session in the first place?

Of course it's true, voting took place in a Telegram.

Why don't you care about the growing premine?
Do you think this is normal?
Was premine, 36 000 000, devs divided it into several parts.
And one part of the premine increases after each validation.
Initially, the size of this part of the premine was 521,526 DNA.
Now it’s 800,826.146 DNA.
This part of the premine grew by 279,300.146 DNA.
Which at the current rate is 2.79 BTC.
What is this all about?
Premine is bad in principle. The big premine is even worse. And in this coin it is huge - 36 mln and even increases. Doesn't this bother you ??

I wonder why you deleted your original message? Where did you write that you are also concerned about this issue, that discord and telegram administrators and moderators look like schoolchildren, and that all this reminds you of the story of rats and a boat?
Do they put pressure on you?

I guess it was put to vote by admins in TG cause you were annoying about it so they went with it.

As for results, you cannot expect something to be implemented when only a fraction of total identities voted.

So winning option got minimal % of total votes. Not representative at all. If it was 54% of all identities, then devs would possibly need to consider it.

Just look at IDENA's price right now it's crashing $0.075467 -13.0% 0.00000738 BTC -18.7%, things is not the same anymore after that last verification where so many people are affected, I don't know if this is manipulated, but I guess it's because we are in a testnet, I'm worried something like this could happen again.

I'm looking and the last price was 940sats... Where did you see that price?

Here I did not screenshot you can check the data https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/idena so far it's improving I'm hoping and very optimistic that the price will go back to what it was after the next validation and things will go back to normal.

Coingecko is prolly using some average of passed week.

These 940 sats is the lowest that has been in the last 3 days, since the rebound after the validation bug crashed the price.

Here is some explanation about that bug that happened and how I understood what was the problem...

Q: Why was I killed, I had great PC / VPS, 16GB of ram and 6 core CPU?

A: The whole network stopped, no one killed anyone, the whole network "killed itself" in a way. I understand that, that kind of powerful node is one of those who participated in committee that made those big blocks, but your results were not in the first but in the second block that was made late.

If you participate in the committee for making blocks, approximately, I'm not sure how big that committee is, that is, how many nodes it consists of. All participating nodes in committee must process all transactions within 20sec of the block's duration. What happened was, too many transactions from too many participants.



3420 nodes performed validation. In the previous successful validation, 2300 nodes passed, which means that the network worked with 47.8% more nodes than last time, which means that the load is so much higher, that is. number of transactions. The block reached a maximum size, 1MB, other transactions were waiting in the mempool to be put in next block. Then the network tried to process that block in order for those transactions to become valid (ie. our answers on validation).
Then, a committee of random nodes is made.
And every node in that committee must process that, so far the largest block we have ever had.
The nodes in the committee were changing all the time trying to process that huge block. But were not able and network made empty blocks.
Until the network came up with stronger nodes (like VPS's and home PC's that had multicores and higher RAM), and they managed to process that block, f**in near the end of validation. Those transactions(validation answers) processed in that block have passed validation, because those transactions are on the processed block and are written to the blockchain.
The next committee is again a failure and an empty block.
After that, when it was already late, the second block was processed (also almost full 1MB block), which contained the other half of our answers/transactions.

Now... The developers will make sure that validation cannot be completed while there are still unprocessed validation transactions in mempool. The worst that can now happen is to wait for the validation result for few blocks longer. Additionally, since it will reduce the maximum block size to 300KB from 1MB, that means it will be 3x easier for all nodes to process blocks.

Q: So what now? Will they kick us out who have 1cpu/1gb or?

A: No, these nodes will work now as well, because they will be 3x less demanding blocks.

Q: And what will happen for the next validation when we have 3000 nodes again?

A: Since there will be less demanding blocks, all nodes should be able to process them and that's only... 10 blocks.
If we calculate that in the last validation we needed 2 blocks of 1MB for all answers. This means we need 2MB of data for all responses to be written. Let's think that in the next validation we will have not 2MB as we had now, let's consider 3MB. Since the block will be 300KB, this means that we will need to process 10 blocks in order for all transactions (all validation responses) to be successfully written on blockchain.
Since the block lasts 20 seconds and we need 10 blocks, that is, we need 3.5 minutes.
And we know that a long session lasts 30 minutes, which means we have 8x more time than we need.
With this principle, we can roughly calculate the following theoretical maximum of the network before validation sharding must be implemented.

Q: And now the question, why didn't they remember that before? But when did it break?

A: It broke because we reached the maximum with testing. If no one had tested, no one would have ever found out about this what we found out. They themselves said they did not expect this.
I guess the problem was also VPSs that have 1Core/1GB. When the 1GB of memory is full, then it switches to SWAP which is actually a slow hard drive. Then for that, the processor needs much more time to allocate memory to RAM and SWAP. And that leads to the impossibility to do everything properly, that is, does not have enough CPU power to process that large block of 1MB transactions.

I also figured out what our maximum transactions were. There yeah were 3966 transactions in that first big block, let's say 4000.
4000tx / 20sec block time, so 200 transactions per second, what is the speed tx/s in ETH?
On ETH the max is 15tx/s.
And do you know what ETH is working on? What are those nodes? They are certainly not a $5 VPS. They run on powerful Amazon instances.
And ETH has 7800 nodes.
Not even Idena can work on Tetris hardware.
After reducing the block size 3x, we will again be at 4x faster transaction speed than ETH.
At about 66 tx/s, even with tetris computers.

My recommendation is to temporarily upgrade each VPS for validation to 2GB.
Digital Ocean is great for that, they support temporary component changes. One can even make a script that Digital Ocean itself does upscale 2GB for validation and downscale 1GB afterwards, automatically via API. I remember that Anthrophobia and Crackowich told me that they were doing it. Validation means testing the theoretical maximum of the network each time.
Node operation during mining, while there are barely a couple of transactions in each block, is nothing compared with node operation during validation.

And this is what we deal in the network, this member is complaining that syncing is slow, and has 5/0.2 internet speed...

And how do all these explanations cancel the compensation? Made a mistake - pay users compensation.

And you forgot to explain on what basis the premine grows. It should not be. Premine is a FIXED amount.
Why not take these 279,300.146 DNA coins and pay them for those losses? After all, developers should not have these coins, only 521,526 DNA in Foundation part, because premine can't grow!

Very good explanation for everyone to read.
It is obvious you spend time to think before you wrote anything.
Not many people do this sadly.
