Production Proposals / Nov 2023 Cameroon One Orphan Expenses
« on: November 01, 2023, 03:30:56 PM »
We currently sponsor 35 orphans from cameroon-one, and this proposal is for the primary payment to cameroon-one.

I am seeking 7MM bbp (approx $540) covering a high proportion of the orphans (we pay $40 per month for each orphan). 

Payout going directly to cameroon-one: BF6qmwBMmnmb4FbSmRGTeWQL1m3rwh5n7b

*** Update on our current Orphan Care Providers (our Vendors) ***

Over the last year, our sponsorship level was stable, sponsoring 44 orphans (35 from Cameroon-One and 14 from Kairos).
(I also have kept a personal relationship with, but that relationship is on a personal level and does not affect the BBP P&L. )

Nevertheless, with the market cap of our coin remaining low, with no new outside donations, the current size of BBP's governance superblock can only cover the Cameroon-One relationship, therefore we had to downsize this month.  The downsizing caused me to pause our relationship with Kairos (one portion of our portfolio that was not able to funded at all by BBP funds, over the last year), and this required me to cancel 13 orphans with Kairos. 

I did give Andrew from Kairos a 60 day notice as well so he has time to start to place the remaining 13 children with other sponsors.  On another note, recently, Kairos had 6 of our children quit the program (IE they naturally dropped out due to not attending the services any longer), so this worked well as far as making it an easier transition for us to only have to cancel 13 rather than 19 children.  Our balance with Kairos is approx -$1,000 (IE we have a credit), therefore the funding will last to the end of the year.

If you get a chance, thank Kairos for their great service and pray that they are blessed in the Kingdom for their continual help for the children in their care.  Also pray for their church plans to be lifted to God and approved so they have a place of worship.

Current BBP Portfolio Size:

Thank you for that. Looks okay.

The temple appears to be receiving 16,830 bbp for when it is ENABLED but if for some reason they are out of sync, their payment is not halved but appears to be only 841 bbp (ie half a sanctuary's). Is this expected and correct behaviour?

Since the temple is the only BBP wallet running on the server, we have no way of knowing when it is out of sync, At least if there were 10 sancs as a temple, I could calculate the consensus and reset the lagging sancs. The only that we know a temple may be lagging if it fails to receive the full payment amount.

Thank you for looking into this.

So far the network appears to be more stable, now that we have kicked off older sancs that are years old on any protocol version.  The LLMQs are 90% correct now, but there are still two weird sancs in there that I have no idea if they are mischevious or not, will need to dig into that.  But for now since the quorum has an 80% good consensus, DM IX has restarted and DM Chainlocks have restarted, all Glory to God.  Now we are waiting for SX to upgrade; I notified them.

To determine if your sanc is in sync, I would prefer using chainz to any internal script anyway:

Regarding being docked 50%, that happens if the other nodes cant see your sanc.  Try verifying you can telnet to the port from another machine to your external address.
Also, if you do not agree with chainz, do a ./biblepayd -erasechain=1 to start on solid ground as you might have started after the mandatory on your own chain.


BiblePay - - Mandatory Upgrade for Entire Network

- Added checkpoint @ 440K
- Filter out misbehaving sanc peers in LLMQ for one duration

- Edit release name to be 'Latter Rain'

Github Release:

Hey All,

A bug has been found in the newest release and since our exchanges have not upgraded yet, I am re-releasing tonight.

Thank you all for your understanding.

We currently sponsor 35 orphans from cameroon-one, and this proposal is for the primary payment to cameroon-one.

I am seeking 7MM bbp (approx $600) covering a high proportion of the orphans (we pay $40 per month for each orphan).

BiblePay - - Mandatory Upgrade for Entire Network

Cutover Height : 449485

- We now have Dynamically Sized Sancs (Temple,Sanctuary,Altar)
- LLMQ Quorums now work with Temples to maximize reliability of chainlocks
- Masternodelist returns the Tribe of the Temple
- Ensure governance monthly emission amount is correct per schedule
- Passive Sancs still get 50% reward due to being POSE banned


You can now create an Altar (455,001), Sanctuary (4,500,001) or a Temple (45,000,001).
Use the existing documentation for creating a sanctuary; then execute 'exec upgradesanc sancname' and your new sanctuary should register.
Be sure to do this after the cutover height.

Dear Rob,

Oncoapop reporting :

getblockhash 192206


testnet wallet.dat backed up


Great!  Looks like you are synced.

I actually had one bug fix I have to release to testnet.
But since we are having prod problems, Im going to go ahead and test these changes right now, so we can have a faster testnet release (blocks are lagging on Chainz, and SouthXChange has stopped).  In light of that I think we need an emergency prod release today.

Our wallet gives you the ability to choose the size of the sanctuary you can afford.  Choose between Altar (455,001 collateral), Sanctuary (4,500,001 collateral), or Temple (45,000,001 collateral).

This gives you the ability to participate in BBP rewards no matter what your budget is: small, medium or large.
The Altar pays at a rate of 10%, the Sanctuary 100%, and the Temple at 1000% of the block reward rate.

You can run your sanctuary in Active or Passive mode.

For active sanctuaries you will receive a 100% reward, while passive sanctuaries receive a 50% reward.
Passive sanctuaries are a good place for people to lock latent BBP funds to earn a reward.
Each sanctuary automatically mines blocks, and only sanctuaries may mine on the BBP network, giving the sanctuary both the mining reward plus the Sanctuary reward.

Sanctuaries perform important functions such as Instant Send Locking (facilitating instant transactions), Chainlocks (preventing 51% attacks), Governance proposal payments, LLMQ Quorums, and they even provide blocks for our network creating a strong backbone for the BBP network.

With deterministic sanctuaries, all payments are stored in an orderly fashion, in an ordered list on chain and paid round robin in order. 

This feature accomplishes a truly decentralized sanctuary network that latent funds can be stored in a safe way, since its Your Key, Your Funds.

I'm excited about this feature for the future of BBP.  This has the potential to attract thousands of users that gave up on mining because of monopolies stealing their hashpower, and also crypto enthusiasts who believe in the future investment power of crypto as an alternative to conventional banking to store latent BBP.

Hey Oncoapop, I know you wanted to participate.
Once you get synced up in testnet let me know that you passed the blockhash check.

If you want to start up a temple, let me know your recv address and Ill send you 50MM, but please note, if you could definitely keep the funds available for us for the future because we have limited funds available in testnet total (we may need them back for something later).

In the mean time, feel free to fire up an Altar in investor only mode and see if it gets 1/10th the payment?
You should be past the cutover height by now.
