I'm going to add the ability to tip Videos and tip user to user in unchained.biblepay.org also.

This is going to be fulfilled in unchained.biblepay.org.

Users will now use their public wallet key to log in (and will be automatically logged in when they arrive).

No need for a normal web account anymore.

However we dont integrate with "normal" social media sites...

Archived Proposals / Re: QT wallet: Prayer Request Enhancement
« on: August 25, 2021, 12:28:11 PM »
Prayer Request Enhancement.

I'd like a messaging systems (see attachments) where we could prayer for people.

In Overview or another tab listing prayers most recent at top, we could reply to requests via a button we click.

Charge 0.1 BBP per character and message is delivered to person sending prayer request.

This way, as a community we are praying for each other.

* If you want to increase utility or bring scale, maybe a more robust decentralized messaging system would be good too.
* To discourage spamming, maybe introduce smart fee. Charge more to send more messages in a short period of time.
* I wouldn't want prayer replies or requests in blockchain if possible to reduce bloat? Maybe mempool only, IPFS, or sidechain?

Looks like we will have this in unchained.biblepay.org.

Over there, you can create a new prayer thread, people can reply with comments, and it is sorted by added descending.

I will archive this.

Actually I think you were simply referring to having a Donate Now button on our main website, and that would be super useful for us to simply allow a user to send some funds to our foundation so we can build a well, sponsor an orphan, and generally improve biblepay.

I will add this to my todo list to see if there is any way we can accomplish this.

Welcome aboard to all new RandomX miners!

I am going to archive this topic while we clean up the forum.

Listen, could you ALL please do me a big favor in order to stay in touch with biblepay more:
PLEASE navigate to our main thread here:
https://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=517.1275

And click "NOTIFY", so that you stay in the loop on : Mandatory Upgrades, Testing information, and any Mission Critical POSTS that we may post.
Many things are happening now in BBP, and I want you all to remain in the loop!

Thanks.

Dear Pastor Joshua--

The issue with BiblePay's budget is it's small.  Our total budget for September 2021 is 2,600,000 BBP.  Which is about $500.
We don't even take payroll currently over here because the budget is so small due to our current low price.

What you can do, is take a part of your proposal, call it a phase, and edit the proposal to include only one phase of the project.
Then clearly explain at the very bottom what phase it is for and what the total amount of BBP that you are requesting is.

Then paste another reply that its updated and Ill show you how this can be entered into biblepay as a proposal (I could enter it for you once this part is done).

While I agree in principle with foiling bot nets, I would strongly disagree with introducing a non blockchain dependency on block generation. It is also contradicts decentralization.
Lets start discussing this just a little bit; and lets keep an open mind, and think through all this over the next 90 days and see if we can come to a general consensus or not.

First of all, when you said that we would be contradicting decentralization, let me clarify the idea first of all:  Unchained.biblepay runs on a sidechain.  So theoretically it is decentralized, because more than one user can run an unchained instance.  Also every comment, every video, and upvote is all on the sidechain in blocks.  So Im really not asking an RX miner to forgo decentralization, Im asking them to hold an account on unchained, another words, simply a NickName, with more than one VOTE count per month.  (No phone number, no email, nothing else).  But otoh, I understand your statement in this capacity:  You are removing the ability for any random pool in the world to pull in N amount of hashpower and simply mine BBP.  So yes you are correct on that side, that we would be very controversial; in that normal pools would not work for us anymore!  Thats sort of what I understand as anti-decentralization - yes, correct.

Now lets look at the big elephant in the room (from my perspective).  When we started biblepay, my original goal was to allow commodity PCs to mine this coin, and make a reward from bible-hashing (POBH), and eliminate mining monopolies (like with bitcoin, I think 66% of the activity is generated by asics, which are bought by Chinese pools).  Meaning that 99% of us small guys cant really make a profit by mining, we are subject to the monopoly.  I would say this anti-monopoly stance is just as important as decentralization.  If not more.  Look what big-tech and big-media is doing to destroy our country right now (through similar monopolies).  This is precisely where my fight is.

If we did this, our small miner would make $30-$50 a month mining, in contrast to if we let the bots and monpolies take over, their income drops to $-1 a month (IE at the energy arb level).

Now, you might argue something very practical to me, like Rob if you let this go entirely free, the way it is now, we might pick up industrial activity and GROW.
What is the evidence of that happening?

So feel free to elaborate on the parts that I might be missing from my end, etc.  Thanks for your input also!

Does 'user-server control' mean it is an asp.net user(or server) control?

I see you changed the position. It is not covered now. On android the sidebar auto hides and the wallet screen is fully visible(vertical/portrait mode).  :)

Ok, I'm finally back, finally corrected the error that I caused earlier (videos are showing again).
So, yes I also centered the wallet control , so it should theoretically be visible now on all devices (in at least horiz mode). 
Thats excellent you can see it on the android, and I can see it on the iphone now also.

Regarding the password field(s),  I did make them of the type password, so now they are hidden as you type.

Regarding the wallet control, yes, its an asp.net server control.  Its included in our distro, and added to the page as a distinct control, but the devs consuming our DLL will not have any access to the encrypted data flowing back and forth to or from the control.  So that is my solution for the 'convenient'  approach as we have right now.  Again, eventually we should be able to offer the chrome plugin as a second option. 

Now can you also test adding comments from the android, and test town hall, and test upvoting and downvoting, and sending bbp back and forth, and verify videos play in general on the android and pc?

Let me know if there are any other issues I forgot to address.

Btw, I did get testnet working again also (but its empty, as I changed the data format).  I recommend testing in Prod however for the time being, as I believe we only have one node running in testnet.  (Btw, our testnet node is running the lastest BBP core version, with -testnet=1, another words, its not running from the DEV branch, its running from the MAINNET branch.  This is because we are about to release a breaking testnet version in DEVelop soon).  Let me know if you need any extra BBP for testing.

Ok, I think that message should be enough to point people in the right direction.  :)

The overlay for the wallet is partway under the sidebar for me. Example: Wa is covered and llet is visible. I can close the sidebar and see the whole thing of course, but it probably should not be under the sidebar.

I went ahead and created a wallet. The overlay that pops up with the recovery words is centered and not covered by the sidebar.

When encrypting the wallet, the password is shown in plaintext. I think normal practice is to obscure it but have a way to make it visible.

I also tested on Android on several browsers. On all of them, the overlay is partway off the screen on the side. If it is viewed in landscape, then it is off the bottom of the screen instead. The page is scrollable, but not the overlay, so there appears to be no way to view the whole wallet overlay. It may work better across devices to have it be an actual page instead of an overlay.

I accidentally sent out a command to destroy some of the videos, oh no... Im trying to repair it now.
Anyway, Ill look into the password box in a few minutes.

In the mean time, I believe the CSS was cached; fixed...  could you please see if I fixed the wallet positioning and see if it works in android too now?

Im glad you have the android; this is very complementary, cause if you can try Adding a prayer response (comment) , adding a Town Hall comment, and liking something from android that would be very helpful also.

Also, please send some bbp to yourself; do you need any BBP for prod?  (Testnet is too cumbersome to go into right now; with the dash rebase coming up, Ive pretty much disabled all my testnet sancs... ) So I think we have to go forward testing unchained in Prod! (For a couple months til the rebase is in testnet again)....

Regarding the last point, an actual page instead of a modal overlay, I don't believe that can be done because I'm trying to make the secure part of the wallet a 'user-server control' so that it can be secured (IE data can not be sniffed on the server, even when people host a copy of the biblepaydll) so thats why its a pop up.  However Ill work on positioning it, I do see that happening now on one of my browsers on the PC but not on the iphone.  On a side note, my goal is to make the same functionality in the wallet available as a chrome plugin (as an alternative) in the future - so we would basically have a Wallet for people that want the default convenience, and an alternative browser-plugin type wallet for those who trust plugins more.

Ill reply to the other parts on the next fix.

Yeah, I just moved all the wallet stuff into a "wallet control" so it can be private for the user (thats accessed with the wallet icon button yeah).

Yeah, I agree and I realize we need an easier flow for a new user... Ill add a TODO item now to think of a way for new users to be led through some wizard or something or at least a page explaining the startup once.

On a side note, I plan on automatically creating a wallet for the new user (who has no wallet) in the future; and that will remove one more step (so every wallet will always have an address and it will eliminate the gotcha of saving a username with no wallet).

But for now, I added an "Explain - Getting Started" button to the Account page - explaining how to get started, and I removed the unecessary space and fields; let me know if this gets us by for the time being- as a new user.  I also made the wallet control the right size to work on the iphone.  I noticed our system works relatively well when viewed vertically on the iphone with the left menu closed.  Whenever I want to do something, I click the Sidebar-show-button, and do it and it closes the menu and Im able to function relatively well.  The Horizonal mode however is very cumbersome, but I dont think its possible to "do everything for everyone", cause fixing horizontal would break vertical; I think its relatively good and intuitive like it is on at least the iphone.

I dont have an android to test on.  Need more input and more testing on that side!

Hi Rob,

If I go to Account->My User Record and try to set and save the User Record it gives this error:There is no Settings in the Account section and thus no "Generate New Address" in Account settings. So this error message probably needs updated.

I see the Generate if the wallet icon / balance is clicked on of course, this is just testing to try to find anything that may confuse a new user or not go smoothly.

Is there a new pool? I noticed an address get a lot of blocks in the last couple days (~20%) and they are not the 30 min timeout.

Your right, I didn't see that... If you look at Pool About page on each of our two pools you see that we solved 83+61 (only 144 blocks out of 205 daily blocks)... Some other pool, or possibly a randomX power user is solving the other 50 blocks.  (We've been in this situation many times with POBH, except the difference is I'm sure the RX activity is completely power-equalivalent to our pools in this case, but its still sort of 'bot activity' unless we find out who the pool is). 

I don't know who this pool or person is... Did anyone start another BiblePay pool guys??

Btw, I am considering adding a constraint in our Christmas release to require RandomX miners to have Social Media activity on Unchained.  What this means is, they would need to upvote/downvote things or post things over there, otherwise the block solutions would fail.  I think it might be good for our community (not only for the intrinstic activity in social media) but more for the miners ROI also.  It would keep the big Chinese industrial miners out (unless they decide to utilize unchained of course)...
