I feel that the 5 BBP will definitely make it easy to abuse the function. 2500BBP I think works well, as you can ask the 2500BBP back in your proposal. If you have a good proposal you have nothing to fear.

This Sunday will be my 'BiblePay day', so I will test a lot and try a lot. A tiny thing that I have for now is that you can still also access the proposal-tab from the top menu. That's probably redundant now.

Yes, Im in total agreement, and I have it set to where we can move the Proposal-Add to the top menu, and just see the Proposals from the left menu; I figured I would leave it like this until Anton gets it as he is working on some things that affect the menu right now.

Yes, the reason its currently 5 bbp, is we went live with that value last year.  However I feel that will end up eventually being abused (as it was in the pool at first), and also, we have been charging 2500 historically in the pool, so I made a transition point as of August 1 to switch over to 2500 BBP for the collateral fee.  So in prod, it will temporarily be 5 also until that date.

Im going to look at any outstanding test cases; we really need to ramp up testing this weekend in order to try to get a version out soon; we cant notify the exchanges of a coming mandatory unless we are sure of a release date.

Loading of the index, was noticeably longer on several machines in prod(I'm talking 30sec to 5+min difference) I suspect this is due to the current issue and all the orphan blocks.   


as for mining,  I have several machines mining 4 cores...  windows of course so no valgrind.  I won't be around tomorrow, but i'll see if i can get logs.

Testing this morning on one home linux and one VM block index seems to load fast, I think it might have been an anomaly.

I'm creating some proposals from the wallet now. Am I correct in asserting that the fee for the proposals are paid right from the wallet (the fee seems to be 5 BBP now, but that's probably because we are in testnet)?

Frankly, I think that is amazing!

Production Proposals / Re: PRE-PROPOSAL - Advertising - Google Adwords
« Last post by jaapgvk on June 30, 2018, 08:46:59 am »

it might be under /var/log/apache/referer.log

i'm not familiar with wordpress (i don't think they provide keyword analysis out of the box and requires a plugin). I'll ask a friend who is a wordpress host provider so he can recommend some tools for future analysis.

you can burn through money quickly online advertising... so my point is to educate yourself and go slowly. i think bitcointalk forum is likely the best source of crypto friendly traffic.

Thanks! Unfortunately, I don't have access to that part of the server (maybe Rob can post the log if he reads this). But I'll install an analytics plugin on the new website (probably Google Analytics, but if your friend has any suggestions I'm happy to hear them).

Thank you for your advice, you seem to be knowledgeable in this field :)

Production Proposals / Re: Proposal idea: airdrop
« Last post by jaapgvk on June 30, 2018, 07:11:15 am »
I've participated in a few air drops and I'm on earn.com -- Honestly, I haven't followed any of the altcoins I signed up for. App downloads, social media posts, telegram joins, etc. All of them, I did, then either left or deleted the app. The only incentive was the payout and nothing else. So, how many participants are like myself in the airdrop world? How much of the airdrop would just be wasted on people like myself?

Even Jesus had a small group of disciplines that help spread his message and even died for the Gospel. Even then, they did not understand even after his death and resurrection.  So, I feel making fishers of men is important than speaking to a large crowd where you do not make believers.

I don't know anything about the airdrop side just receiving... so I'm open to hearing your thoughts.

I absolutely see your point. The reason I had the idea for an airdrop is because I also participated in some airdrops myself also. And indeed the overwhelming majority was of the 'fire and forget' type, and I didn't  even read what they were about. Just a quick buck on the side. Retweet, fill in my ether-adres, and done.

I think that our airdrop is different form most, because to be able to receive the airdrop, you're practically already mining BiblePay. You need to have a BiblePay address (meaning you will most probably download a wallet), and you need to have RAC (meaning you don't just have to create a Rosetta@home account (and join our team) but also solved at least one task). That's a big hurdle for most.

I think that for most people this costs way to much time and effort (at least way more than retweet something, join a telegram group and fill in your ether-address). In my view, having an airdrop is about 'getting out there'. We get retweets and airdrop groups showing us on their websites, telegrams and twitters. Are there are bound to be people among there that are like you and me: they participate in airdrops but also think that BiblePay is actually something worthwhile.

In the end you receive some dollars worth of BBP and the only thing you have left to do is to associate your wallet with your Rosetta@home account, and you're done.

I don't want to give away any more than necessary. And I want to do a quality airdrop. Meaning that I want this airdrop to succeed in getting people on board that really see our value. Combining a tough airdrop proces with a nice reward I think has the ability to do these things.

I also don't need to spend the entire airdrop budget. If we do it ourselves, we can decide as a community how long we will do the airdrop and how much we want to spend :)

Production Proposals / Re: One Click masternode set up and hosting
« Last post by LifeThruGrace on June 30, 2018, 02:10:24 am »
I see some potential here with churches that may want to buy a masternode to support the mission of helping orphans (e.g. use the payout from the masternode to help support a child on compassion). Or masternode could be used as investment tool for the church. Church would just provide the fiat, and everything would have to be performed as a service. Not just the masternode, but converting of bbp -> btc -> fiat. If taxes needed to paid, the service would have to provide the documents as well. If MN becomes an investment vehicle, then would it be possible to approach mutual funds that are moral (don't invest in tobacco, alcohol, drug stocks) and negotiate for inclusion as a financial & charitable investment vehicle.
