A month ago I tried to install the linux wallet on my phone (which runs a debian distribution) but I couldn't do it.
It would be a pleasure staking btcd on a cell phone  Grin

I think the N900 is a real king. I own two of them and I plan to buy another one soon.

Good for you, the N900 is an awesome phone, I used to have one, but the USB port fell off and I resoldered it a few times, but eventually it just gave in.

Cool! It never even occurred to me- staking on a Linux phone will be way cheaper than some DigO or AWS VPS!

Finally a good reason to get one!

You can use a charger to charge the battery externally. You can also have more than one batteries. Japod batteries are cheap and better than genuine nokia

I think Chrome is a decent browser and far better than Internet Explorer/Edge. Personally, I like Firefox best. Also, I have to agree with the other that have posted about Google prying into our privacy as they have truly become an unregulated technology company monopoly.

Opera is my favorite but it has some incompatibilities with many websites
a good way to search on google and avoid being tracked is by using disconnect.me
https://search.disconnect.me/
I am also paying a VPN service. I am not happy with their speed but, I am happy because they block tracking, malicious websites etc
You also have access to websites that are blocked in your country.
I paid around $15 on black friday sale. I think the normal price is around $70
I paid for premium (not premium plus)
http://www.cyberghostvpn.com/en_gb

I also use peerblock which blocks organizations IPs, government IPs etc. It's a free tool
http://www.peerblock.com/releases/public-releases/peerblock-1.2.0-r693

Also Ghostery for firefox is good and free
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ghostery/?src=search

And by deactivating Javascript, Java, ActiveX, WebRTC and Flash on your browser you are a bit safer.

A good website to test your anonymity is http://whoer.net

Last, I recommend Tails which is a bootable image. It appears to be OK but deep inside I have a fear so I don't use it to pay by credit card, check emails etc. Tongue

xombrero is an interesting alternative also:

I do not like the new logo! Am I the only one, who is bothered about this?

The color orange is not adequate IMO for a "dark" coin, should be rather blue or similar (blue-green?, blue-black?, blue-violet?), dark color anyway, orange is too "bright" (just my personal taste).

The form of the logo will hardly be recognized this way. The "recognition value" is maybe not very high. Could anybody explain me the meaning of these curves?


The old logo was better, please switch back or choose a better one.

Like BTCD anyway. Strategy is good and we will succeed.

My suggestion would be something more in the direction like this:



or



Color blue/black - constant
Logo - abstract but still readable as B and D, black outer curve symbolizes the teleportation process.

These are only raw drawings made in 5 minutes in paint. This is not a professional picture and I'm not a graphics designer. A good and creative graphics designer could make it lots better using some effects.

Nice image!  Wink

I would prefer Blue = "Trust, dependable strength"

Has always been blue, why disturbing users?

I think the colour is good. But I do enjoy fanta and orange crush Smiley so perhaps I'm biased. The logo looks like it already incorporates the B and D but just not so obvious. I don't believe BTCD is meant to attract and primarily be used in 'dark' markets or want to give the impression that it is all it can be used for. It's much much bigger than that.

Are you sure?

After the renaming of Darkcoin into Dash Cheesy   BitcoinDark is the last big resort of darkness. Dash/darkcoin has made many things fine, good logo, good functions... but the name is a disaster! I strongly hope the team of BTCD does not plan to rename BitcoinDark! (cause the name is exciting good!). BTCD could be the only "dark" coin! It's a chance.

My take on the new logo.
The orange part is referring to the B curves of Bitcoin (hence the orange)
The Black part is referring to the D of Dark (hence it's black)

If you compare this logo with the logo from instandex and the Pegged asset exchange it's even in comparable styles.

I like the new logo too. I don't think BitcoinDark is only for 'Dark' purposes at all. It's a private investment, and an extension of Bitcoin.

The following post represents one day's work:

***
pushed a new version

​[6:06]
I started rearranging the code and finding all OS dependencies. now there is a hierachy of portableness so depending on the OS, just a few functions are needed, and at the layer above all the OS looks the same

​[6:07]
iguana has been written with this in mind all along, but havent verified I was strictly following for a while

​[6:07]
so, the codebase is now ready for somebody to see if it will compile natively in windows

​[6:08]
pthreads is probably the trickiest dependency for windows, but there is a pthreads for visual studio

​[6:08]
alternatively, mingw or cygwin can be used to cross compile

​[6:09]
the time functions are a mess, even for unix it is pretty messed up, so there isnt a clean way to make time functions portable across all OS

​[6:09]
unless

​[6:10]
unless you use a library that has minimal dependencies. I had known about bernstein's libtai for a while, but never looked into it in depth until today. I refactored it and it is in iguana now

​[6:10]
actually I made a crypto777.a library file for common things

​[6:11]
i got it to resume downloading from what it finished, well almost. bundles that are partially done will be restarted, but completed bundles should be found and used

​[6:11]
and since I was too tired to do any difficult coding after all that, I added 30 more API calls

​[6:13]
i havent tested them much at all, they do hash calculations, about 15 like sha256, sha1, rmd160, ... and the hmac using those hash functions, along with some bitcoin specific ones like double sha256 and rmd160 of sha256

​[6:14]
since iguana automatically provides a pure json output, what this means is that all of these hashes and hmac's are available via the half dozen ways to sending in the API

​[6:14]
and it can be verified via the port 7778 page. there are many online hash sites, but I never found one with all of these variants in the same place

Could be that Cryptsy is done:

Important System Notification
Trade engine and withdrawals paused while we investigate cause of lag. Your patience is appreciated. Thank you

https://www.cryptsy.com

Hard to say if that's the end but I'm pretty sure that they won't survive.

Week 32: 19.5 BTCD have been paid to 585 unique BitcoinDark addresses for successfully staking blocks 884492-895553

Nice payout with E9 and CORE funds being added to MMBTCD this week.

Thanks for staking and supporting the BTCD network!
