Production Proposals / Re: Automatic Price Mooning
« on: July 21, 2020, 12:29:29 PM »
Hi Rob,

Interesting idea. I believe in a correlation between scarcity of anything and value attached to it. Here comes my first question:

RandomX miners are sacrificing a percentage of their XMR income in return for BBP they get paid. Assuming these guys are good in calculating their best interests, and many (if not all) are driven here by their greed - I am afraid we will observe a swift reduction in RandomX hashrate once they see they are not getting paid as much as they did until now. That, inturn, will reduce the charity funds generated via dual mining?

Hi Talisman!

Great question, great point.

Its certainly a consideration, especially since the RX miner is contributing about 10% of the charity to this project currently, and also --  in a very short time since the POOS proposal passed, the Sancs will be paying the lions share of the charity expenses.

But I think realistically, lets say hypothetically the RX miners do jump ship the moment they see 1 bbp reward (IE one particular day they see this, so they shut the miners off), I think this will work both ways however -- lets say we lose miners for a couple days and then our price does rise back up to say 3 satoshi, then mining is re-enabled, wouldn't we see an influx of RX miners due to the reward increasing by 300%, possibly?  So I think someone [some miners] will have to fill the void.

Most likely the real life scenario will be that they program the miner to only participate on days that its profitable.  Thats actually a very good outcome that we would enjoy also because then we save money on electricity the days that our price drops and then we pay more (at a higher price) the day we rise.

It might also cause them to be motivated to re-enable mining (by buying some extra coins to force BBPs system back on) - maybe.

But it does like sound like a conservative idea over all - its certainly not reckless to save money.  Its sort of similar to what we would want the federal reserve to do in hard times (in contrast to wasting the money flow constantly).

Im thinking the plus for investors is rather strong;  we cant really brag about investing in BBP if we dont have something unique; this is one of those potential features to brag about.
I wonder if you went to a 90 year old Christian grandma and asked her to invest in cryptocurrency if this would make her feel more at ease?

Production Proposals / Automatic Price Mooning
« on: July 21, 2020, 09:28:10 AM »
I'd like to discuss the design and viability of a new feature, something that might be called Automatic Price Mooning, or Moon Ratcheting or maybe something catchier.

The idea stems from the question, What will make investors most interested in buying and holding BBP?
I thought of creating a built in trading mechanism that requires BBP to buy coins off the open market each month, (with the intent that if we have an increasing volume and an increasing price, it would provide impetus), but the downside to that idea is that in order to raise capital to pay sancs to buy on the open market we have to sell our own currency which further exacerbates a bigger sell wall on SX (which imho, we need to get rid of at this point, not make it worse).

So the best idea I have at this point is to make an algorithm that Records our current price in Satoshi (down to the 9th digit), so today for example our price is .000000015 at the daily GSC superblock height, once per day.  (And, we will remember the last 7 days of prices in memory also).

What we would do is simply have two rules:

If the snapshot price is Less than Yesterdays snapshot price, OR Unchanged from Yesterdays snapshot price, we pay all blocks at 7 BBP for that day.  (Meaning that the sanctuaries and the miners get shorted by 99% of their reward that day).
Otoh, if the snapshot price is HIGHER than yesterdays snapshot price, even by .01 satoshi, we emit our normal rewards for that day.


So the marketing on this is IF BBP does not have a continually increasing price in Satoshi, we pay 99% less rewards to the Sanctuaries and to the Miners.
This would give an impetus for someone to step in to SX and buy up at least enough to get us to the next satoshi higher.

I think its a pretty strong impetus to keep the price rising (hence the name Automatic Price Mooning).

Obviously when we hit a high barrier like 7 Satoshi, we would waver for a couple weeks at 7 to break through to 7.1 etc.
Of course the downside is the sanctuaries would get strong cuts along the way, but remember since everything is relative, a higher price per coin * existing supply is still equal to a higher reward than more coins * less price (VALUE = COUNT_OWNED * PRICE).

The main viability of this idea is actually on the question, will more net miners and project participants enter BBP as they see the price rising to real levels - levels where people take this project seriously.

I don't believe this idea will in any way hurt our security, because we are rolling out fully locked LLMQs with chainlocks in testnet (this means the sancs constantly monitor the order of the blocks), so lack of payment with merge-mined blocks should not pose any security risk to the chain.  I think the entire effect will be on those who receive rewards wondering why they got 1 bbp instead of 3000 etc.

And lets think of a really bright outcome:  What if this wild idea gains national attention?  Price Mooning?  What if a lot of people jump in and say, BiblePay is breaking through with this strange feature.

On a side note, we would leave the monthly governance emissions the same during the variable emissions phases - simply because we do not want fork risk.  The gov emissions are precalculated in many places and shorting those proposals down to 1 bbp causes too many problems.  However note that we will have proposal in soon to reduce Governance expenses down dramatically (since governance is no longer paying for charity) and we can give that portion to the coinbase reward so the sancs get more of a reward (and that helps them pay for POOS).


Please, if you have improvement or suggestions or downsides, please let us know.  Im willing to change the idea, but obviously it has to be able to work without fork risk.

EDIT:
Btw, BBP would save 1.8MM per day on emissions when implemented (or 45MM per month).  So there is a real theoretical impetus for a rising price when less coins are minted that would ultimately be sold.

Production Proposals / Re: Vote on Future Currency Name II
« on: July 20, 2020, 03:24:15 PM »
** Update **

I do realize this whole voting issue for a future currency name has pros and cons.  On one hand I really love that we have created an existing brand that is 'sort of' catchy.  Although we still have a weak wordly presence, we do have a brand.  I think our biggest downside is our barrier-of-entry with religious connotations.  We can definitely work on addressing that.

Anyway, this poll shows a propensity to keep BIBLEPAY on one hand, but it also shows a desire to move to a new name (if we add up the individual votes for other names).

Lately however there have been many prophets speaking about various catastrophic things that are about to take place in the world.  I'm not setting dates, and I'm not saying any of these things are surely coming, I am simply warning everyone to repent now while times are good (while we are living in peace & safety).  The biggest warning out right now is that the spirit of lawlessness if coming over the world, globally, and actually starting civil wars and riots in various places.  The prophets say that around the time of the elections (November) we will see fires and riots etc. 

In light of this I think the best thing we can do right now is put this change on hold for 4 to 5 months.  I feel that we should keep an eye on the global situation and if we see that we are entering into Daniels 70th week (that is, the Tribulation), in that case we would imho, be better off staying as "BIBLEPAY" into the end-times.  BiblePay would be the best brand for anti-mark-of-the-beast technology (an underground blackmarket for trading), and, I would also guess that religion and the spirit of Christianity would increase, causing more interest in BiblePay.

On the other hand, if we see things return back to normal (IE Coronavirus dissapearing, no lawlessness, a revival) - these are all things that Matthew 24 says will NOT happen - as I want to warn you, once the baby is being born, it is prophesied the birth pains will INCREASE and contractions will INCREASE IN FREQUENCY until the baby is born (thats Jesus, ruling the Millenial Kingdom), but nevertheless, if we have peace and safety at Christmas of 2020, then we can pick this back up and consider switching our name to something more appealing to draw the masses in. 

Ill check back in around October or November also and add another poll that specifically hones in on a vote for "BBP" vs. "OTHER THAN BBP" also, just to make it very clear.
On a side note, by then we will have in-wallet coin-age voting!  So this will be a perfect candidate to get the popular vote result on this from both coin-age and distinct user.

Thank you very much for the trust. I have received this info just now and I am creating the Wiki user right now. The user is "elyelma" - just as usual.

I will keep updating my advances in this thread.

God bless.

E.V.

Sure, no problem.  Elyelma has been increased [in the wiki], please let me know if you have any problem editing the roadmap.

Awesome Rob. I'll be waiting.

All the best,

E.V.

Hi Ely,

Moving on to Project #3 (the whitepaper itself):

I have updated the whitepaper to, what I believe to be, accurate now.

Please see this new version:

https://san.biblepay.org/Docs/biblepay-whitepaper-single-cover-EN-July-2020.pdf

Then when you are ready to translate to Spanish, here is the source document:

https://san.biblepay.org/Docs/biblepay-whitepaper-single-cover-EN-July-2020.docx

When you are done with the docx version feel free to post it and I will convert it to a PDF.


Good luck and thanks!

Rob

Awesome Rob. I'll be waiting.

All the best,

E.V.

And, moving on to project #2 (the New Coin Launch Thread):

First I modified our New Coin Launch - correcting errors and discrepancies.

I created a Spanish BBP General Discussion Topic and then a Spanish New Coin Launch thread here:
https://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?board=26.0

I made you a moderator (for forum.biblepay.org) also, so now you should be able to EDIT the OP post and see the markup in the OP post, and change it to Spanish.
Let me know if you receive any errors, etc (maybe try a few words first and try to save it).

Good luck.

Lanzada en Julio de 2017 por Rob Andrews sin ICO ni preventa, Biblepay es un proyecto criptográfico  descentralizado y autónomo que dona el 10% a los niños huérfanos del mundo a través de un sistema de gobernanza basado en Nodos Maestros (Masternodes, acá llamados “Santuarios”). Ansiamos compartir las Buenas Nuevas de Jesús, por lo que hemos compilado en su totalidad la Biblia del Rey Jacobo (versión KJV) en el código fuente de la billetera. BiblePay (BBP) es una criptomoneda de características deflacionarias, por lo que su emisión disminuye en 19.5% anualmente.

El Proyecto puede ser descrito como una utilidad: un método alternativo para realizar donaciones a la caridad. A través de losContratos Inteligentes Genéricos (GSC, por sus siglas en inglés), el Proyecto tiene el propósito de llegar a ser la billetera de confianza de la Comunidad Cristiana a nivel mundial. En el futuro, el equipo pretende lograr la reducción en el espacio requerido para el funcionamiento de los Santuarios e incorporar características corporativas de integración, por ejemplo, acceso del lenguaje C# a la cadena de bloques. La plataforma de BiblePay es una criptográfica derivativa de Dash-Evolution. Ubicados en Dallas, Texas, nuestro objetico es ayudar a los huérfanos a nivel global.

On the Spanish roadmap wiki page btw, when you edit it, I believe the easiest way to edit it will be to click "Edit Source" and edit the actual HTML English words into Spanish -- (as we have a lot of code in there for the milestone bar).
I would not recommend trying to edit the page itself (with Edit) as I believe it will break the HTML.

Good luck btw.

** Should BBP dig three wells in Pakistan and help 600 children get water continually **

Should BIBLEPAY fund this?

https://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=566.msg7926#msg7926




** Update on the Pakistan Water Wells  for 600 children - November 2020 **




BiblePay has paid for the construction of three new wells in Pakistan that will help 600 children - continually, with no future maintenance fees.


Sonny from Paani has given us an approximate ETA of 80 days (So lets look at this again around October 20th) to complete the wells, and give us pictures of the work.

We instructed them to give us some pictures with "BIBLEPAY" on the wells.

Hi Ely,

I have created the bounty thread here:
https://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=575.new#new

Please verify that these amounts are suitable.

So far I have corrected the English Roadmap to be accurate - then I forked it to here for you:

https://wiki.biblepay.org/Roadmap_Spanish

Will you please create a wiki account and let me know what the userid is and then I can increase the permissions?

I will start checking out the contents of the English new coin launch thread next - then I will fork it to a Spanish version for you to edit.

Thanks a lot for helping us.

Hi, Rob!

I am very excited knowing that you like this crazy idea. I am all up into taking BBP to Venezuela as I already have contact with orphans organizations and many churches and I have a very crazy idea that I'd like to talk to you some day. I am also all up to do these assignments, and if possible having it ready on this same upcoming week. Having the white paper and roadmap is indeed something that can be easily done, now the new launch page would be something that I would like to indeed do with your guidance.

Updating the original pdf, would be something that I'd really like to do only with your guidance or at least counting with your proofreading as English is not my native language.

Just let me know when we can get together for a talk!

All the best,

E.V.


Hi Ely,

Thats great you are interested in taking on these projects!

(Yes, I definitely understand the need for the contents to be freshened and corrected also first).  This is a good impetus for us to correct those things in the English version(s) anyway as those versions are stagnating.

Alright, let me create the bounties, edit the roadmap, check our OP page, and the English whitepaper.

Ill start on this today, and Ill get back to you ASAP so you can get started on one of the projects while I work on the remaining issues.

Thanks!

Rob

I have created the Bounty thread here:

At this point I have paid $1800 to PAANI for the three wells.

I requested that the wells be given by "BIBLEPAY" and requested the pictures option.

I received a message back from Sonny:  It will take about 80 days, and we will receive pictures!
