Whether you are newcomer or not, there's a specific definition of orphan. does not lift up orphans. They help poor children with families. If orphans are the true target, then BBP should increase over time to help orphanages more. I think all current BBP charities are helpful -- the marketing just needs to reflect the charity's mission.

1. lacking sufficient money to live at a standard considered comfortable or normal in a society.

synonyms:   poverty-stricken, penniless, moneyless, impoverished, low-income, necessitous, impecunious, indigent, needy, destitute, pauperized, unable to make ends meet, without a sou; More

2. worse than is usual, expected, or desirable; of a low or inferior standard or quality.

Beautiful redesign! I think links that go outside (e.g. explorer) break up the experience visually, so I wonder if those links should somewhere and not on left side? At some point, I'd love to see to adopt the re-design.  Perhaps as part of switching servers/hosts this is a possibility.

> Rob will 'tip' in a little extra to ensure Gods money

Thanks for your generous heart. I thought the other day what you might do with the "points" from the AmEx, but if you're tipping a little extra, I think it balances out.

I was confused with  and referring to orphans because all the kids I read descriptions are on poor kids in families. I wonder if there's a more accurate word to use besides orphans. It raises a red flat (scam) in me if I read orphan but the organization itself doesn't really support orphans (no parent alive) in their current form.

Don't get me wrong... I'm pleased we can help support a coin that aligns itself with God calling us to help the poor.

@Lichtsucher  Thank you for purepool. Making workorder your wallet address makes it much easier to mine (like Yiimp pools) than having to register a worker then use the worker (like MPOS pool). You could just as easily create separate wallet addresses if you want to track how different miners are doing.

One of my life dreams is build a missionary trust where funds are released on a monthly or yearly basis. Whatever that value may be is irrelevant to me. Just that the trust is self-sustaining and gives (hopefully) a steady stream of funds while maintaining itself. I see Sanctuaries being able to play that role. Churches could pool to make a sanctuary and then fund the church financials or give to specific missions (charities, missionary in a specific country) to spread the great commandment in its daily form.

Mark 12 ESV 29 Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Financials should only be a concern in that it may multiply our ability to carry out the work Jesus called us to do... not to enrich us materially. This is a harsh statement, but IMO, those that hold masternodes specifically to enrich themselves only are not aligned with the Bible.

really impressed by the visuals.

with the road map, it wasn't clear to me various status projects. inwards is more completion? maybe white can be green to show progress. more green, more progress... the legend "estimation of maturation vs probable manifestation range" was not helpful to me. very words without telling me project status.

also citation is at the end of the white paper but is not linked. might you provide anchor links within the document to those citation links at the end? any statistics, if you could provide the links within the web site itself. also consider using web archive to save the snapshot of the page and link to that so you don't have to deal with link rot later on.

1) What happens if the BBP/BTC pair rises? Is there be a mechanism for giving at steady accelerated rate versus giving spending the entire amount? Spending each month becomes a feast or famine approach. If there's a surplus, I'd be for a steady rise in giving like 5% more each month... It's a way for all organized structure to adapt to growth slowly from BBP side and charities.  If the BBP/BTC price drops, I think a similar approach of reducing payments slowly could also occur.

2) @jappgvk "is have some fixed BBP address for every charity that we are partnered with, so that people can send BBP to those addresses if they want, knowing that their BBP will go to the right place."

I agree with the idea but I also see some issues with potential fraud. Third party could advertise addresses not authorized or slightly different from the charity to siphon donations. Once you open this up, there's a lot of potential for fraud. Centralized giving in some ways is more secure.

3) I don't know what country each charity manager lives, so I'm curious what income tax reporting looks like for all three of you (compassion, cameroon, and bloom). For example, Rob A. gives to Compassion on his AmEx. Does he have to report this as personal charity giving on his income tax because he pays with his American Express. And his American Express, I'm assuming, is a personal credit card?

4) Is the BBP Foundation already a non-profit, LLC, or some sort of business entity? Is all the giving already recorded under the umbrella organization of BBP Foundation?

5) I just worry if wallets or Rob or jaap dies, the charities may miss a payment... are there recovery plans for disasters like this?

I don't know how others feel, but I get confused by the amounts because net amounts are not shown. PODC updates especially showing spend very little, but sometimes take big starting amounts and end with big amounts. I think visually the QT does it right by showing the net amount. I think explorer should work the same way. Details should show gross amounts being moved around. I know this isn't exactly what the upgrade is to support, but if it is easy enough to add, I'm in support of it. It would add consistently to UX/UI between QT wallet and Explorer. btw, the green color for receiving and red for sending is a good visual hint that I enjoy.

To build from source files, these instructions worked for me using Ubuntu 16.0.4 LTS:

Run each line one at a time.

Support and Troubleshooting / Re: Buying BBPs

Use GDAX instead of Coinbase. ACH transfers are free (bank to GDAX). You pay a small fee to buy BTC. But you pay no fee to withdraw that BTC to CCEX or SouthXchange. Coinbase just charges a lot of unnecessary fee because they are simple to use. Just learn the GDAX interface and save yourself on network fees.

Can't say I was happy with the fees on the exchange  BBP is listed on. They seemed a little higher than other places I've used like Bittrex, Bleutrade, Cryptopia, etc. But what can you do... you go wherever the pair is. I've done some small deals under 5k BBP over Discord, but you have to be comfortable with the risk...

If you are taking enhancement requests, I'd be curious to see who the block finder for blocks on purepool are. Also, stats on which addresses find the most blocks on purepool. You know, the typical pool stats that is somewhat useful. I'm most curious though about found blocks as a ratio of pool hash power. I seem to get paid a little more than proportional of my hash rate if I throw more hash power at purepool, but that's just my guess. Having the stats would prove helpful.

Can you make Magnitude 0 to 100 instead of 1,000? 0 to 100 makes more sense as a percentage than 0 to 1000. Easier to comprehend right away.

Where does Rob live? Our work has computer sales and have off-lease business Macs for sale sometimes. I'm in California. Shipping would be expensive for a desktop... I think mac Mini is likely the least expensive way to go, or a mac desktop if you wanted something a little more powerful. macbook pro/air is okay, but they are a premium cost wise.
