Discussion and Suggestions / Send BBP by any phone capable of text messages (SMS)
« Last post by sunk818 on September 22, 2018, 05:56:07 pm »
Now that you have send BBP by e-mail, I wonder what it'd take to build a BBP system based on SMS & phone numbers? The use case I'm thinking is someone with a paper wallet imports their private key, ties it to a phone number, and they can send BBP by texting it to someone else. It'd still be a wallet address to wallet address send transaction, but the it'd be via two proxy phone numbers. I saw that DASH was doing something in Venezuela with SMS. Since we support unbanked Android PoDC mining, seems like a logical extension to send BBP via SMS. This allow billions of people around the world that can use SMS to send BBP to each other.

[/size]I know Twilio has some robust telephony APIs, so that might be a starting point to research.

For contacts, is specific long & lat a good idea? I'd worry someone who wants to target a group specifically could use it for evil. I wonder if long & lat should be close but not exact... like round up to zip code or census block group. So, you get a general idea of where someone is, but not exact location. The final disclosure can occur interpersonally.

Windows is deployed.

EDIT:  Ok, the two boinc diagnostics commands should work in windows now (1155c has been deployed).

Hi All,

Here are some of the new test cases:

1.  Diagnosing Rosetta:  type 'exec rosettadiagnostics'.  This command prints if Boinc is installed or not, if a rosetta account exists, and if Rosetta is attached and crunching.  Note that this does not work on windows yet, but it will within a couple days (as a couple values need entered in the code for windows).  Although this is not a GUI (yet) this was one thing we needed to provide the ability to make a GUI work.

2.  Auto attaching RAH for a brand new user:  type 'exec attachrosetta e-mail pass'.  This command won't harm your setup if you are already working so have no fear in trying it.  Its basically an end-end test that tries to fix anything it finds that is wrong.  If boinc isn't installed, it tells you to install boinc and stops.  If an account does not exist, it creates one.  If RAH is not attached, it attaches RAH.  This command also does not work on windows yet, but will within a couple days.

3.  Business objects.  Now we have the capability to create multiple types of business objects in IPFS.  We currently have 3:  object, contact and gospellink.  Note that the contents of each business object record are stored in IPFS not the chain.  To see the list of gospellink's for example, type exec bolist gospellink. 

4.  Navigating to a List (of business object records).  To keep our BO system generic, instead of promoting hundreds of UI pages at this stage, the navigation is done through programmatic jumps from object to object (not from UI bound to objects).  So let's test the display of the list of gospellinks:  From the menu, click Business Object List.  This shows the master list of business objects (we have 3).  Right click on Gospel Link, then click List.  The system will then show a list of Gospel Links.

5.  Navigating to a URL in a business object:  Right now we have Testimony URL in Contact and Video URL in GospelLink.  To view a video for example, right click on the GospelLink and click NavigateTo.  You can also do this from Contact.  The system searches for a field called "URL" and navigates to that field value (currently).

6.  Add your own gospellink:  Type 'exec addgospellink url notes' (Note that any value with a space in it must be surrounded by quotes).  In the future we will have an Add page to add a business object record to any business object.

Hopefully you can see the value in business objects, as a generic store that Biblepay may possibly charge to lease individual organization specific permissioned objects.  Realize in the future we will need to add permissions to keep an org's objects from being defaced by the public.

If you use Chrome, you can right click on any page select Inspect. Do a Hard Refresh a page (Ctrl+F5) so all the resources have to loaded again. Look under Network and you can see "waterfall" of resources that are loaded. The blue bars that are longest contribute to overall slowness of web site loading.

I'd consider using a static HTML version of BiblePay: https://wordpress.org/plugins/simply-static/

We'd have to do some testing if any functionality is broken. Test newsletter and any other parts of site that require interaction by user.

This gives us two great benefits:
1) Web site will be extremely fast - no dynamic process of the web site
2) Makes it harder for hacker to attack web site since it is just HTML & images

Downside is that every time you update the site, you'd have to re-publish.

But I feel the benefit if a faster web site and being less susceptible to hackers are compelling reasons to try the above.

This is our current report from Google. Our web site is very slow and mobile support is poor:
https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fbiblepay.org&tab=desktop

Let's keep a snapshot of that and see if going the static route is helpful. What do you think Jaap?

If that many people don't stay till 10 seconds, and the page average load time is 5sec for the "best" browser..

Perhaps we should look at simplifying/streamlining the landing pages.

It's interesting,  what is the average daily before and after the airdrop, it appear's like it may be slightly above what the previous batch was.

Are we ready to post the airdrop stats, I'm curious what those are.

Yes, I absolutely agree that the loading-times should be lower. The website has been slow since the beginning. I already use cashed pages (WP Super Cache), but maybe we should also look at CDN? I'm not a web-dev, so if anyone with experience could take this from me I would be very happy!

Also, the website will probably get a make-over soon, which will make the landing page (biblepay.org) a lot simpler, and that should also reduce loading times.

I think that the 'average daily' after the airdrop could also be due to SEO. I've installed Yoast Pro and did some SEO. Again, since I'm not a web-dev, I'm not experienced with this. So if anyone has experience with SEO wants to give it a go?

About the airdrop: what numbers would you like to see? I've done about 80 payouts since the start.

Google Analytics was installed July 8th, 2018 by Jaap

I was curious if the airdrop skewed the statistics,
so I wanted to see how our users looked before the Airdrop started on August 21st:

Stats (July 8th - August 19th):

Language Code Table:

Stats (July 8th - September 20th):





Note: So after airdrop looks like we had a large increase of Android users 15%+ increase, and multiple increases of users from India, Nigeria, Indonesia and Vietnam
