It seems that copies of my darkpaper draft is maybe affecting the market
For competitive reasons, I dont want to publish yet, but if any BTCD regular wants to see current draft, just PM me
This way you can read it for yourself

When do you plan on publishing?
Probably in about a week will have decent draft, but not sure about the graphics or external analysis. Then again, maybe incremental release is the way to go?

I guess at the latest, when the software is released, regardless of the condition it is in. The sooner the info gets out there, the sooner it will be peer reviewed. Anybody that wants draft copies can obtain it by PM

I know the feeling too well lol, I stopped mining in the multipool and just mine btc and buy btcd. But all my scrypt is on xpool super happy with the payments so far.

By any chance, anybody able to do code review? It is in C and I think for any privacy solution it is important to get external honest feedback. This will allow to fix any weaknesses in the algos (if there are any)

Also, it would be good to have it verified that the C code matches the darkpaper

I want to be very thorough about all this as we are talking about big responsibility and while I am usually right, I do make occasional mistakes, so best to make sure I didnt make one in any place important! (or anywhere at all)

I think anybody to review the code should get compensated and in a currency other than BTCD. That way if they find a flaw, they wont care about disclosing, otherwise they might not tell what they find for fear of hurting their payment. All this will probably take longer than two weeks, but in my experience it takes a long time to arrange for things like this, so the sooner we start, the better.

James

P.S. Notice how open this process is? This is critical for any anon tech! Avoid any anon crypto (or any crypto) that is not open with how it actually works!!

I think it is important for potential code reviewers to disclose their credentials and justify why they are qualified to perform a code review of this nature.  I'm a C/C++ dev with 15 years experience but I doubt I am smart enough to understand the code that James is writing Smiley  So I won't apply. 
I try to write simple C code!
Please reconsider. Any one elses eyes on this is better than just me. I will send you draft dark paper and then once you understand what I am trying to implement, you can start looking at the code. the privacyServer stuff is already in the:
https://github.com/jl777/pNXT/blob/master/NXTservices/orders.h file, sendmessage is the key function and also the packets.h file that does most of the onion stuff.

If you cant understand my code, then maybe it is too complicated and that leads to bugs.
Any questions, you can just post here. We need this to be solid and the code is out there for the bad guys to look at (and they probably are!) so we need to do our best to find any flaws.

OK?

James

Hi James,

At a macro level the (limited) code I've looked at so far is easy enough to understand.  What's difficult - and what I think is beyond my comprehension - is familiarizing myself enough with the entire codebase and overall design in order to relate it to the dark paper with any degree of certainty.  This will take time, and I have to be honest that I just don't have enough time to devote to it.  So I'll have to decline and hope that someone with more brain capacity and time than me can step up.

I did read the draft darkpaper though, and that reads well, good job.  Only thing you might consider is an executive summary, for the lazy/layman...

Its only 40000 lines of code Smiley

How about this for executive summary:

BTCD to 'da moon!

Did I do that right?

Believe it or not, I had writer's block today, on the coding side.

This is rare and usually indicates that either I am getting a cold/flu or that there are some critical issues that are unsolved and coding would just create code that needs to be redone. The subconscious is a powerful thing if you just listen to it!

After writing the draft darkpaper earlier, I guess part of me realized that I wasnt ready.

Sure enough, instead of C code, Part 2 of the darkpaper came out, with just one final appendix needed and that I am pretty sure wont block me tomorrow.

So, instead of finding out deep into the weekend, I found out today some course corrections and some additional parts that I need. Part 2 solves these issues and now I have a pretty clear path to Teleport demo, just an extra 1000 lines of code or so. So timeframe is still on track, lets estimate working transporter by next weekend and another week to transition into BTCD core. Since my code has just two well defined entry points to hook into pretty much anything, I think one week should be plenty of time for that part.

So, maybe it will be command line or ugly text form API, but I am working toward working demo two weekends from now

Thank guys. FYI, SHA256 payments look to be delayed because Cryptsy is having problems with withdraws and the SHA256 shift hasn't been processed by them yet, nearly 12 hours later.

I'm paying this out of pocket (162.17175039 BTCD) as I'm sure it will eventually get processed but I hate having shifts lingering like this.

Cheers!

I agree with Paul, the rough draft reads well and I don't have the coding experience of Paul either.  I think once the technical writer(s) and graphic artist(s) get their hands on it, the finished product will be grade A fer sure. 

Transporter by next weekend is super exciting and I can't wait.  You've also mentioned you think you ramble in this thread too much, but i totally disagree.  Your so called rambling eases people's minds, I think (it does mine anyway).  For me, it adds more trust and visibility to the equation and when none of your ideas have been released, trust and visibility go a long way.  Especially if it helps you sort things out....... ramble on dude!!!!

Peace

All the "rambling" brings the community together as well.  The collective knowledge and excitement that result from James rambling, is shared throughout. And something that simple unites people without them necessarily even realizing it.  I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way....

And, with that, I'll cease my rambling  Smiley................ Peace

Maybe ask Dan Metcalf of XC to do the code review?

He did it for Keycoin and is a respected member of the community and has an impressive coding resume.

It might be hard to get him to do the review tho because he was reluctant at first to do even Keycoin's review.

I have been working with coinomat.com for a couple of months now.
They offer this wonderful service for directly sending crypto -> visa/mastercard
Since it is a visa/mastercard, of course there is no privacy, but still you can go directly from your wallet to your credit card

Now, they only support BTC, LTC, PPC and NXT

Well, soon they will add a fifth crypto to their supported list. Care to guess which one?
Smiley

Also, I can confirm that coinomat.com will be the company that will do the card processing for the anon card, but we really need to raise more funds!

I cannot over stress the importance of the anon card.

Let me put it this way. The anon card will be one of the recommended ways to retrieve funds out of telepods into the normal space. So, all that BTCD (and BTC and NXT) being teleported, when it finally comes out of telepods a lot of it will go through the anon card and investors in the asset will get 1% of this traffic. Now, dont raise too much, I still want to have 50% of this 1%. Since bitcoin does around $50 million per day, if just 1% of this became telepod transfers, that will be $15 million per month of overall activity, some of which will go through the anon card. I dont expect it to take more than a year for $5 million to be processed by anon card and that is the rough breakeven point.

There will be alternate paths out of hyperspace but that will only be into normal crypto space, not fiat-land. I will convert the amounts raised when BTCD price is not at depressed levels, but we really need this anon card to have a complete Teleport solution. I hope that we can reach the 25,000 BTCD level soon. It will take some time after funds are raised to have the card.

James

P.S. Plz dont pump the price, the 5% per day gains are plenty and more sustainable. I mention this right before weekend as that is usually slow time as normal pumpers seem to take the weekends off.

Lol, you know you can't come with some news like that and not create a small pump. Telling cryptoholics not to pump..... yeah right.  I'm kinda surprised there still hasn't been much upward movement...... and it's been an hour since you posted.  It only took like 5 minutes for a bump last time you had good news.  

How long we talking on the coinomat card btw?

Edit: Hold off on anymore news, btcd has already become too expensive compared to the deals over the last week.
