Quick comment/note about the new proposal view (which is really nice to see!) - it would be great if the spacing on the amounts was done the same way as in the rest of the wallet.

For instance, instead of:

It read:
8 000 000

Not a major thing by any means, but something to consider for a later leisure.

Finally part 2 was also solved.

I had to create and sign the executable into a MacOS bundle which was sort of complicated stuff (docs only refer to XCode IDE projects) and there is little or none info on manual bundling.

So we will have the MacOS wallet DMG uploaded to shortly.

Congrats MIP! That's awesome.

QIEX has requested for the original source of the white paper, so they can convert it to Chinese,
Could you share the original source? (Im a noob, I assume the pdf file started as a word doc?) Thanks!

(This would also help us be able to convert it to all the other languages as well)

I've linked here both versions of the document in .docx (the blue/silver and the red/gold). The content should match...anyone who wants to make further amendments, please feel free. This belongs to the community, not me!

So I have completed what I believe is a "final for now" version of the whitepaper. I've added in a page on PODC and one on security details.

The link to the PDF is still here:

I think we should get this moved over to our official website sooner rather than later though. We can always make subsequent changes as necessary.

Production Proposals / Re: Crypto Bridge Exchange Listing

I'm all for listing. The proposal bank is pretty light this month - perhaps we should consider putting some extra towards the "new exchange fund" and then we can still do this PLUS one more if a good one becomes available.

While I wouldn't call this a definitive update, I talked to some people on the Cryptobridge discord, and their advice was that since we have submitted the form a few times and it has been quite a while, for someone to reach out directly to @shews or @CoinMan and inquire how we send payment, that it might kick things into gear a little bit.

Not sure if that would work or not, but I didn't want to "go rogue" and start offering our funds on my own :) so I thought I would pass it on.

I contacted/applied to all of these exchanges a month ago, still no reply from any of them  :-\

I believe Rob also applied to Bittrex again a month ago as well.

Just FYI, I  contacted Mercatox today, and filled out the form on CryptoBridge. We'll see if getting an additional request changes anything.

So nobody explicitly told me NOT to investigate this further :)

I did some digging, and the bad news is that RightNow currently don't have an API library, so direct integration would be very difficult - we wouldn't be able to manage accounts/users, or track the materials watched for proper crediting.

So it sounds like they are out. However, I'm still a fan of this kind of idea. I'll check out GodTube and see what other options are out there. If there's nothing, so be it.

Production Proposals / Revamping BiblePay university (P2P)

I mentioned this in the bitcointalk forum, but didn't get any responses...

What would people think about BiblePay becoming integrated with RightNowMedia (

There is a huge library of videos and study resources, leadership/mission training, etc. - the kinds of things that BiblePay U is doing, and a good P2P activity, in my mind.
Pricing is by user/attendee (basically, by church size), and I am not sure how they'd view us, or what kind of options they would give, but I'm happy to be the point guy exploring it if people are interested.

While I'm not affiliated with them in any way, I will say that my church (which is very large) uses this, and my whole family finds it a great resource.

Thanks for your work on it - I love the theme, and it's (as the others said), an easy "Yes"

Edit to add: This church accept Bitcoin can we contact them?

Do you have a letter I can send to direct churches to the admins, i will promote to churches?

Adding to the list...

General Discussion / Getting churches involved
« on: April 15, 2018, 03:19:46 pm »
So everything around BiblePay right now is about individuals contributing and helping out - which is awesome, don't get me wrong.

However, I was speaking to our small group today, and a member of the group who is a deacon in the church started brainstorming with me about how the church could really get involved and leverage this. It's trickier than it seemed on first glance.

Of course, the church has a budget of its own, with its own commitments. A small percentage of that budget could be diverted into buying/holding BBP, and exchanging it periodically - although that requires an individual with significantly more "crypto" familiarity and comfort than most church financial officers have.

We threw around a few other ideas, and the conversation is by no means closed, but I'm wondering your thoughts. How could a reasonably sized American church (say, weekly membership of about 2500 or so)  get involved with BiblePay?

Good catch on "revolutionary" - updated as per the suggestion. Man, I feel like I read through this thing so many times...good to have someone who is a step removed read through it. Thanks again :)

As for the PODC explanation, I actually considered a page on that, but was worried that I was reproducing the whole wiki in whitepaper form, and that it might still be under a bit of change (things like inter-project weighting, for instance). My thought is to wait a bit on this and maybe add it in once things settle down, but I'm happy to hear what others think.

I really like this idea. My votes are a yes.

Production Proposals / Whitepaper update
« on: April 10, 2018, 09:42:51 am »
I decided to take a stab at making us a slightly more complete, professional-looking whitepaper. It's been reviewed by Rob, Jaapgvk, and Togoshigekata and shared on the Bitcointalk forum where it has been well-received. In addition to adding some better layout and design, some additional sections were created - ther's now a market opportunity section (which includes some supporting stats and outside references), as well as a BiblePay one-pager and a roadmap visualization.

I'm happy to do some minor modifications/etc in the future without a new proposal.

I will of course give the PDF & MS Word versions to the reviewers mentioned above, as they seem to be in charge of most places the whitepaper might be found (Reddit forums, website, etc). If there's anywhere else it should be posted and I can do it, I'll post it myself at the request of the community. If there's anywhere I CAN'T, then I'll hand it over to someone who can. This proposal is really just about the creation of it, but obviously there's not much value without some distribution.

The whitepaper can be seen here with all feedback incorporated:

Now in terms of the time/value, I'm trying to keep the hourly rate to something that puts the cost within reason, but between research, writing, layout/design, and image sourcing, it definitely took a fair chunk of time. I feel that 20 hours is definitely on the low end of what I spent, but I really wanted to cap the value of this thing, so that's what I went with.

Funding Math

1 BBP = .002309 (Apr 10 2018, CoinMarketCap)
Rate of $25/hr (tech writing/layout should be reasonably cheap)
20 Hours
216543 BBP

 - I suspect this should come out of the PR budget, and will submit accordingly.
