https://github.com/amjuarez/bytecoin/network/members

That is not accurate. It shows forks that were done automatically, but not others. For example AEON is clearly a Monero fork, as it includes features that originated in Monero such as the mnemonic seeds (also the AEON source has Monero Project copyright notices), but it doesn't show on the above list at all. Likewise Monero isn't shown, only the abandoned predecessor bitmonero.

Any comments on this?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=745352.msg9878702#msg9878702

Any comment on the fluffyponyza SDC code review (XMR Core Team) on Reddit?

http://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/2pfmds/shadowcash_ring_signature_whitepaper_released_any/

"There's little substance in the code, the verifyRingSignature() method is trivially simple and isn't called anywhere else in that commit. Their proposed function, generateRingSignature(), doesn't exist and thus it's impossible to determine whether they've actually done anything of substance. The whitepaper is purposely vague in many of the important parts, and a review in conjunction with code is impossible, so we have to take it on the face of it...which is that NIZK + ring signatures + security + low space utilisation = impossible right now."

"That's the commit I'm referring to - it does some trivial ring signature verification and creates key images, but it doesn't actually use them in transaction, nor does the code exist to create a ring signature."

For the record I support both SDC and XMR. It would be great if SDC dev team could respond on the Reddit thread. Thanks!

His first comments have no substance, he said that without having checked https://github.com/SDCDev/shadowcoin/commit/317b9b1f5121ecde162fd8d37fbd587182c45fef?diff=unified

The only interesting comment is this one :

Quote
There's no NIZK stuff in there, at least not anything beyond what Monero's keyimages use (which is a very simple ZKP). I'm unfortunately failing to see what they've done beyond what is already in the CryptoNote whitepaper and implemented in Monero.

Even if what he says was true (nothing unique compared to CryptoNote), it would not be fair, because i don't remember any CryptoNote implementation on Bitcoin base  Tongue


If you look at the timestamps, Fluffy pony made those comments before shadowsend v2 was open source...

I already responded on that thread -

If you look at the timestamps, Fluffy pony made those comments before shadowsend v2 was open source...

Yep, that's correct. I made the first two comments with respect to commit 94bfb03. Thereafter (the following day) commit 317b9b1 was made and pushed to the repo, and subsequently pointed out to me. I reviewed that, and thus updated that thread with the additional comment.

Honestly, I don't really care to get into a this-coin-that-coin debate. Kudos to the dev(s) for actually putting in effort to implement a very simplified ring signature system. If they add bad utxo blacklisting and also provide a suitable fix for the chain reaction privacy reveal outlined in Monero Research Lab's MRL-0001 research bulletin they are well on their way to implementing one half of the two core privacy principles espoused in Monero's cryptography (that is to say, they would then be able to provide a measure of cryptographic untraceability, but not cryptographic unlinkability).

and -

Busted...

Fudders gonna fud...Great chance to snatch up more SDC at these levels Wink

Not sure if I'm misunderstanding Longenecker or everyone else is. My initial comments were made after reviewing 1 of the 2 commits to the "anon" branch, the 2nd commit didn't exist at the time. It would be impossible for me to have foreknowledge as to what would be contained in the commit, and any idiot can look at the first commit and also observe that it didn't contain generateRingSignature(), nor were the verification functions wired up. I'm certainly not "busted" or "fudding", and if that's anyone's takeaway from me making a clear observation then they need to seriously revisit that persecution complex of theirs.

hrm, whattaya think of this:

we approach sites that should obviously be using monero.

arrange so that for (X) months, they list their products at 1/2 price in monero, and monero "investors" cover the other half as a sort of promotion. (investors being us, or more specifically, whoever's capable of a 10k monero buy wall)

This came to me because I went out of my way to buy primecoin when I registered a domain name on dotbit.me (also emailed the dude and asked him if he'd take monero), because it cost me like 1$ in primecoin and the bitcoin price was 7$.

and we could just design the backend software to automatically pull from the promotion wallet.

benefit for the business: seemingly cheaper products increase sales
benefit for consumer: cheaper products
benefit for monero: 1. demand on the markets 2. businesses and users become aware of monero 3. once in place, its not like the business will take down the monero payment system

unfortunately, we'd probably have to design into this backend an immediate monero -> bitcoin exchange, so that these websites could use their existing bitpay setup. Hrm, actually, in general, that would be the killer app - a payment thingy that automatically exchanges for bitcoin, and then routes it through the bitpay system (or whatever the website is currently using)

and again, the "we" i am using is the queenly we, because "i can't code, I can't script, the only thing about me is the way I think....."

or this could all possibly exist in some fashion and I look like a total idiot.

I don't know if there is actually something you can buy with Monero that is listed anywhere.

I think Monero (XMR) is very interesting.

which is why we should make an app to buy with monero, exchange for bitcoin, and plug that bitcoin into the vendors bitpay infrastructure. Then everyplace that accepts bitcoin can accept monero. No fancy whatsits and legal fandingos necessary.

(edited to add)
and i already came up with a name for this a couple pages up... Payero.

Bitcoin! You can buy Bitcoins using Monero ... that is actually a mood talking point.


The 1/2 price is overkill. On the other side the pure marketing effect for a company like Spreadshirt (Spreadshirt is an internet company offering an online platform for private individuals and commercial organizations to design, buy and sell creative and personalized apparel) could catch on.
Creating awareness for a service or product, the pure advertisement effect should be the only and sufficient motivation to work together with a company.

Spreadshirt really should offer christmas socks with some text entry field on front.


edit: oh, how about mollesting webpages (blogs) for putting up a "Donate some Monero" sticker on their frontpage? a simple addition in their webpage's DNS entry allows recieving tips from their readers, something argueably PayPal or similar can do, too. but remember Bitcoin was for some timespan usefull for recieving tips. same old road to go!
That ended when the greed, the hunger and the Gox famine kicked in.

There seems to be a problem with 0.8.8.6 on one of my machines.

It seems to be unable to establish any connection with the outside world. 0.8.8.4 on the same PC worked well and I'm not aware of having changed anything to the network settings.

I used print_cn to show the connections and there don't seem to be any. What am I missing?
This is on a Win 8.1 Pro 64bit with 8GB.

I've got no such problems on my other computers with the rest of my XMR wallets. They are all running on win 7 64bit.

I used print_cn to show the connections and there don't seem to be any. What am I missing?
This is on a Win 8.1 Pro 64bit with 8GB.

I've got no such problems on my other computers with the rest of my XMR wallets. They are all running on win 7 64bit.

Try delete your p2pstate.bin and start the daemon up again?

The daemon will start synchronizing with the network. It may take up to several
hours.

You can set the level of process detailization* through "set_log <level>" comman
d*, where <level> is between 0 (no details) and 4 (very verbose).

Use "help" command to see the list of available commands.

Note: in case you need to interrupt the process, use "exit" command. Otherwise,
the current progress won't be saved.

What is also different to before with 0.8.8.4 are the long waiting times after Initializing P2P server... and Blockchain initialized. last block: 297522, d40.h1.m
34.s21 time ago, current difficulty: 1005607647
, marked in purple in above excerpt. Almost 15 minutes, never seen that before.

It's a fast PC with SSD and 8 GB, loading or saving the blockchain usually takes between 25 and 40 sec.

I tried with firewall off, checked the exceptions, switched off the antivirus, nothing seems to help.

Do you think an uninstall of Bitmonero could be of any help?

Thanks

^Try "save" in the daemon and restart it. You could also try 'save' in the old version daemon after deleting p2pstate.bin and then run the new daemon - that worked for me.

There seems to be a problem with the built in seed nodes. If you don't have a valid p2pstate file, you need seed nodes to find the network (as long as you have such as file they are unused).

Here are a couple of working nodes to try. These are just regular nodes, not official seed nodes so they might not be available at a later date

--seed-node 5.9.23.116:18080
--seed-node 198.27.64.122:18080
