Great!
Can we also please consider plug-ins for translations? Would be great to have it in at least Spanish, Korean, Chinese.

Ah, yes. Good suggestion! We actually talked about that in the past. I will look into it :)

do you know what kind of pool payout is pool.biblepay.org and for purepool.org ?

the two most common I think are proportional and PPLNS.

Hi all,

I want to request funds to be able to buy premium-editions of the following two Wordpress plugins:

Yoast SEO: This is an SEO-plugin for wordpress. The free version is already installed, and is primarily used to improve our position in page-ranking (which basically means that search engines will show our website sooner than others). The premium version will add more (much needed) functionality and will enables us to give our website more exposure. It costs 79 ex vat. But since we're not incorporated yes, I'll buy it as a consumer and it will cost me 95.59.

The Newsletter Plugin. This is a plugin we use for our alerts and newsletter. Buying the premium-version will allow us to automate processes, get analytics, and add a nice 'sign up' bar to the footer (or as a pop-up), which will - hopefully - result in more people signing up. This plugin costs 49 incl vat.

That totals 144,59. Current BBP price hovers around 0.00000030 BTC which is about 0,0016 EURO. That would make 90368,75 BBP.

I hope that people can see the value of adding these two premium plugins.

Great!

Not related to this specific request, but you should consider removing BiblePay Explorer transactions from showing up in Google. Maybe just home page, Top 100, etc... But just TXs links will clutter up the Google search engine results.

Production Proposals / Re: Compensation for Jaap's work with BiblePay
« Last post by jaapgvk on July 12, 2018, 07:54:13 am »
Hi everyone,

I'm going abroad for a couple of weeks (with probably very little internet), so I'm not going to do much more work for BiblePay this month.

So here is my proposal for the work I've done on the website from the 20th of June untill today.

Pre-migration:
8 hours: rewriting, adding articles, editing links, etc.

Migration:
16 hours: migrating website and implementing SEO, google analytics, cache, CDN, backups, etc.

Post-migration (until 12-07-2018):
7 hours: (implementing feedback, making final adjustments/implementations, writing articles.

The website is just about finished. So from here on it will probably mostly be a little maintenance and writing articles.

I'm giving myself a little raise because, frankly, I think that I've provided quality work to the community. I think that it's fair to ask the same amount that Togo does. So from now on I'll ask $20/hour. As said before: I don't ask money for guiding charities and helping the community etc, just the things that I really consider 'work'.

Currently, the price hovers around $0,0019/BBP
(31 X 20) / 0.0019 = 326316 BBP

This has my vote!

Production Proposals / Re: Proposal idea: airdrop
« Last post by jaapgvk on July 12, 2018, 06:22:55 am »
I've decided to go ahead and ask for preliminary funds for this. We can work out the exact details of the airdrop later on, but I feel that we're pretty far in the process.

My plan at the moment is:
Securing funds (750$ in ETH) to get exposure on airdropalert.com (and all of their social channels). I think that it is important to get exposure for the airdrop. Airdropalert.com is the largest entity listing these kind of things, and smaller entities are largely leaching off of them, so getting exposure on there I think means getting exposure along a wide spread of airdrop-listing entities.

I think that the feedback that LifeThruGrace gave is very valuable, and the last thing I would want to, is to throw away BBP. So it's probably best to include the need to subscribe to a special 'BiblePay-Airdrop' Telegram group. Telegram is linked to your telephone-number, so adding this will reduce the ability to game the system.

I'd rather not do this, because I would also like to appeal to crowds outside of the normal airdrop clique (who use Telegram in masses, because it's often an requisite for an airdrop), but maybe it's for the best.

I would like to request 1M BBP. Which is about 2000 dollars. And I want to use this money to get exposure and get a first 'batch' of airdroppers on board. We can then review the data and see if we want to prolong the airdrop (I can ask for budget each month).

Let's say that we can get 50 long-term Miners on board each month because of the airdrop. I think that would be very much worth it.

The beauty is that we can check the data and see what airdroppers do after receiving the airdrop (selling everything or continue to mine).

I think that the P2P budget is best suited for this (although it could also be PR).

If most people think that 10.000 BBP is too much, I'll gladly slash it in half :) I'm open for all feedback.

Have you considered the abuse potential? It wouldn't be hard to create VMs (Windows or Linux) and script your way to multiple 10k BBP payouts. At 0.002 x 10k = $20 USD?  That's a lot of motivation to cheat the system. Sorry to be negative here, but I've seen a lot of airdrops not give the result people wanted. Wasted advertising $$$ mostly if you actually follow through on the payout.  Would you have to screen for fraud manually or is there an automated/clever way to clean out fraud? Is having to upload your identification too much?  Or perhaps there's an API where you can tie in with a reputable exchange where the user is registered and authenticated to an acceptable level?

I like your feedback. I thought that I made it hard for people to cheat the system.

Do you think it's easy to script something that registers you on three websites using a unique email-address, downloads, installs, and sets-up two software-programs (including waiting time for the R@H task to solve and for the blockchain to sync correctly), burns your CPID into the blockchain, and fills in the google-form with all the necessary data? I have only little programming skills, so I don't know how someone would go about this.

The verification will be manual btw (also due to my lack of programming skills).

I'm not feeling comfortable doing a KYC, with all the risks involved. It would be nice to be able to do some blockchain identity verification. I know that some projects are working on that (like Civic), and it would be nice to be able to use something like that in the future.

I could also ask participants to join a special Telegram airdrop group, those accounts are linked to unique phone-numbers.

Anyway: thanks for the feedback :) I hope that we can have a quality airdrop that gives us new users.

My thought about doing the airdrop this way, was that participants would already be mining in the end. Of course they could sell, but why not keep on mining?
