Production Proposals / October 2022 Cameroon One Orphan Expenses
« on: September 21, 2022, 07:07:46 AM »
We are transitioning back to Monthly governance proposals (from POOS).

We currently sponsor 35 orphans from cameroon-one, but our monthly budget will not cover the entire portfolio.

I am seeking 12MM bbp (approx $1000) which should cover approx 25 orphans of our 35.

This thread discusses solutions if your biblepay-qt wallet appears too large on your display, so large that the borders are cut off the screen Or if you cant see the "SEND" button when you navigate to the "SEND" menu (to send coins).  Send button is supposed to be at the bottom left of the screen (below the transaction fee).

December 2021 Release - Barley

Welcome to TestNet - Barley!

This is BiblePays Q4 release for 2021!

Also, we will be testing a lot of unchained features to ensure full integration.

1) We still need 7 more testers:
     Please reply to this thread if you are willing to execute all of our test cases, and these will be explained in more detail to make it easier.
     We are offering a bounty of approx. $30 per hour to the FIRST 10 TESTERS.
     NOTE:  The Payment to you will be done at the end of the testing round, summed by the average time per test case for a grand total figure.
      We do not pay for Research, but, we will pay a padded time per testcase to give you more than enough time (rounded up to the next 15 minutes) to perform all cases easily.

Testing is Starting: Aug 31st, 2021
The expected End of TestNet for this version is:  December 4th, 2021
Expected go-live date for Barley:  December 25th, 2021

In this thread we will be testing:

- Dash changes:
   We have rebased to dash 0.17.3. 

- Legacy features:
   Our biblepay custom code has been migrated to
We will be releasing and testing those custom features from unchained, and we need to test the core wallet to ensure it works correctly without the features, and still achieves our mission critical goals.

- Known issues:
   Portfolio Builder needs rigorously tested.
   POOS needs ported and tested.

- NFT's:
  Test non fungible tokens from Unchained.

- Major sanctuary coverage:
   LLMQ Chainlocks in 17.3

- Mining:
   Verify RandomX mining works

- Sanctuary Governance:
   Ensure the monthly governance superblock works, voting works, and watchman on the wall works.
   Ensure the payments are correct for sanctuaries, and for POOS banned sancs.

Primary Test Cases:

- Ensure POOS (proof of orphan sponsorship) for sanctuaries works:

- Verify exec price works from unchained:
- Verify we have the ability to see Sanctuaries with orphan URLs (POOS) and the POOS status from either unchained or the wallet *TBD:
- Create a sanc:
(What do we do with Diary entries, unchained?) *TBD:
- Verify leaderboard for UTXO positions has been moved to unchained:
- Verify upgradesanc and revivesanc :
- Verify watchman on the wall (new proposal), vote for proposal, proposal trigger and proposal payment in monthly governance block :
- Verify gettxoutsetinfo:

- Test Chainlocks

Explain Important Changes to Entire BiblePay Network:

- Rebase to and ramifications
   I would like to explain the benefits in more detail of making our core wallet 99% compatible with Dash.

   This should allow us to be listed on bigger exchanges (little custom code, standard wallet), give the user more security and trust from the core wallet side (IE the code is now mostly pristine),  and easier for us to maintain from an IT perspective (merges, security commits, etc), and prevent rebase emergencies.

   The custom features will now run on our sidechain from   .  Our NFTs, portfolio builder, BBP Univ, memorize scriptures, everything from the top level menu will run over there. 

   Our code 'playground' will be in Unchained TESTNET going forward, preventing any possibilities of releasing dangerous code to MainNet.

   Our returning users seeking our features will theoretically gravitate and concentrate at unchained, for social media features and tipping and interaction. 
   (Technically making more sense, as the full wallet does not run on small devices anyway, and requires a full chain with full resources. )

TestNet Discussion Archive / Biblepay Unchained Mobile Wallet Thread
« on: July 06, 2021, 08:22:28 PM »
Please help test Unchained:

- Test unchained as a mobile wallet, so we can have an alternative to Breadwallet for mobile devices (think people who do not have a PC or are traveling etc)
- Test unchained add a prayer, add a comment, add a video in Prod

To start with unchained, go here either from a PC or from your mobile wallet:

To create your wallet, go to account and click Generate new address.  Note that the system starts in TESTNET.  You can now click the MainNet button and do some testing in MainNet also.

We now have six separate sidechains running (3 in testnet and 3 in mainnet) holding our videos and DSQL data.  You will see that if you enter a comment or add a video to Prod, this video will only be in the Prod chain, while making a comment in TestNet will affect the testnet chain.  This will be useful as we build out our social media platforms (one for churches one for users).

One thing I am looking for is suggestions that we need to make this solution very usable as a mobile wallet.  For example, that it feels clunky to do something on the iPhone and the suggestion.

One definite feature that we need is the ability to enter a PASSWORD to spend funds.  Currently we have seed words, restore address and spend which appears to be fine for a person who always has control of their mobile device, but on shared computers and shared phones, someone can spend the funds if they can access your unchained page.  So I am aware of this and have it on my todo list to add a "password" (similar to our wallet unlock option in the core wallet).  The idea is your wallet will remain Locked and Encrypted if it has a password on it, and will require the password to spend from it (this password will decipher your key and will not be stored on the device).

TestNet Discussion Archive / Amazon Storefront Integration
« on: July 03, 2021, 01:49:40 PM »
This thread is dedicated to testing our new Amazon Storefront.

This is possibly one of BiblePay's best use cases.  The ability to spend your cryptocurrency on real durable goods.

Could I hypothesize that this makes BiblePay a Top 100 coin?  A top 10 coin?  A top 5 coin?
Possibly, because out of 1000 cryptocurrencies, most of them have no real use case.

This means that we will be one of the first to actually be useful in the real world.
You can BUY biblepay (as a speculative cryptocurrency) on an exchange, we know that. 
But up til today, what could you do with biblepay?  You can't really spend it on much, unless you first convert it to BITCOIN.

But now, we have something that only a few coins have:  The direct ability to buy billions of $ of products with BiblePay, starting today.

You might remember that during our second year we started on this idea (An amazon integration) and due to technical problems, we never did finish it.  But today, its finished (or should I say, in beta).  The technical problems have been worked out.  Theoretically, there are not any expense caps either (you can buy a $25 gift card, you can buy a $200 construction tool, or a $1,000 computer if you want, this week, as soon as the bugs are worked out).  I feel our liquidity on SX has increased enough to handle the volume, although I admit we will crash the price and raise the price vehemently when we start stress testing, but those are normal growth pains.

Now we have something to talk about..  Anytime a user says in the trollbox:  What good is biblepay, do they even have a use case?  YES, you can buy Anything with biblepay, with free shipping, delivered to your house. 

Lets get started:

To use this new feature:
Click on Storefront

Doing your own research, you can look for absolutely any amazon item that is considered PRIME (because we want to offer free shipping to our users), copy the URL, and simply add it to our marketplace and the item will appear for sale.   (NOTE: When you add an item, do not add Whole Foods or Pantry items, those are not supported, however you can add a "Prime" food item as long as the shipping is free and does not say "$35 minimum order required for free shipping".  Notice all the cereals I added.)

We don't charge ANY markup at this time!  Shipping is free.  The taxes are included in the purchase price.  You can also buy a single item, such as a box of crackers and they will be delivered  to you with no surcharges.

To buy an item simply follow the Buy Item wizard (self explanatory).

I look forward to everyones input, testing, and most importantly growth!

Praise God, and may Jesus have all the Glory with Bible Pay!

If I never mentioned it, I envision BiblePay being a facility to provide a reliable service for Christians in the future (when cryptocurrency becomes more prevalent).

Bounties / UTXO Stake Giveaway of 1MM BBP
« on: June 28, 2021, 03:34:13 PM »
New Referral code added below, updated July 14th 2021:

We are giving away the equivalent of 1MM BBP in Portfolio Builder.

This is not "free money", it is an enhanced Portfolio Builder position.

To use this code:
1) Establish a portfolio builder position by launching the core wallet | click Misc | Click portfolio builder.
2) Add any amount of BBP and ensure you are in the leaderboard.
3) From the rpc type:
attachreferralcode 25191aadf59d5e21dbc3b8d3cd65b8a48d20a38bf4781fcce7a4c446ec9e8801
4) Wait a few blocks, and your position will increase by up to 1MM bbp (Note: we only match 1bbp per bbp, so in order to take advantage of the whole amount you need a position size of 1MM bbp).

Congratulations!  If you use the whole amount, your DWU can increase from 21.5% to about 38% in a best case scenario!

TestNet Discussion Archive / BiblePay TV - Alpha
« on: June 24, 2021, 01:41:50 PM »
I am pleased to announce BiblePay TV for ROKU. 

Note that this is still in Alpha and is configured for TestNet.

- BiblePay TV:  Allow users to watch God related videos
b.  Provide Content-Creator channels (IE @Pastor-Dave) for our future social media platform (this means that our social media creators will have channels, and under that, videos,
and they will be mirrored here automatically for more coverage).
c.  Ability for the Viewer to star rate a video so we can establish a rating (eventually) (not released yet)
d. Provide Church Channels - this will allow a church to mirror their content inside BiblePay TV as a Church Channel

- Sponsor an Orphan:
a.  Mirror our Orphan NFTs inside biblepay TV, so users can spend BBP on their TV set, and sponsor Orphans

- Wallet:
a.  Provide the ability to spend tBBP on NFTs
b.  Provide a mechanism to withdraw the BBP back to their wallet (this will be added very soon)
c.  Provide a mechanism to deposit tBBP into the TV

- PR/Advertising
a. Provide publicity for biblepay on 150MM tv sets.

How do I install BiblePay TV?

From a PC go to:

Our vanity access code is "biblepay".
Once added click your "HOME" screen on Roku and you should see the biblepay Logo.

** Note, we are still a private channel, meaning you have to manually add us with the link above.  We need 3000 subscribers to make it to the "big time", meaning then we would be part of the channel store (and would be public).

To get started sync your testnet wallet at home so you have tBBP (launch bbp with -testnet=1) or from windows click BiblePay Testnet Shortcut.

From Roku navigate to Wallet.
Send tBiblePay to your Roku wallet.

Hi everyone--

This bounty is for an enhancement to the MAC OSX biblepaycore home wallet.

The github source for the program is here:
(See our mainnet branch, building for MAC OSX).

Note that we have RandomX as our mining algorithm, so we differ from bitcoin in that respect.
See the specific section in our Build BiblePay doc on how to compile RandomX on the MAC:

So for a long time we were able to build the MAC version with RandomX support, and release this finished build as a DMG file.
However recently we started running into some new troubles.  We can still Compile our code for mac, and run it without a problem, however, when we build our DMG, and the user runs this as an official DMG:  They can do most things like load the wallet, see the overview page in QT, and sync up to a certain block number.

We notarize the file and set up the DMG (as an apple developer) so that the DMG is approved by gatekeeper to run it (it runs as an authorized dmg file).

But the specific problem is when RandomX hash library is called for certain hashes, a memory access violation occurs in the MAC OS, and it bubbles up to the user and crashes the program.  (Specifics:  This crash did not occur until approx Feb 2021, after some apple updates to MAC OS that made it more strict!).

Our mac developer, MIP can provide more information on this - please ask us more questions.  When we run the DMG in jailbroken mode (with gatekeeper disabled), no crash occurs during any hashing and the whole wallet works.

So I believe his opinion is that MAC is protecting a certain area of memory.

Now the randomx virtual machine executes machine language specifically for the hash, so it needs unprotected access to a chunk of RAM.

MIP has tried setting the compile flags that make the librandomx.a file statically linked, and he set the flag to allow full access to the RAM but his particular flag did not work (I believe he is not completely sure if this option was passed in 100% correctly or if the dmg honors it or not). 

If we have an expert out there that would like to take this on we would appreciate it so that we can have our home MAC-OS wallet run without disabling gatekeeper!

Thank you in advance.
