Another note on rating, how can we differentiate between say reviewing a 1 line sentence vs a page vs a 10 page document? Would we want to pay each the same? or would we want to base pay and collateral on how long it takes to review an item? How many words to read, How many minutes in a video, etc

Could someone just vote randomly or all yes or all no on items and make money without having to actually review anything?

Should we penalize bad voters?

Huge point on the video time vs letter size etc.  This is another one that would be rife for abuse if we asked the user how long it took to review, or if we checked the size.  If we pay more, people will look for hard drive hog sized videos; or write overly long letters.   Another tough one.  One idea might be for us to measure the elapsed time the biblepay user spends in-review in a particular piece of content - and keep track of the average and maybe it influences payout.

I thought about the penalization of the bad voting.  For a while I thought about paying police to find chronic voting abusers.  I lean toward trusting utxo weight rather than trusting a manual policing process.  But in this case we could write a report that picks the top worst voters (voters that go against the grain consistently - more than say 66% of the time).  What we would do with them, I dont know.

This is pretty cool!
- solves the Orphan Letter Writing review issue
- solves the Prayer review issue
- incentivizes more gospel viewing

Just so I understand correctly, is it possible to spam Prayers? or does the person putting up a Prayer have something to lose if they are a troll/spammer?

I could see someone spam 10 terrible prayers, they all get downvoted, everyone downvoting makes money from the blockchain, then the guy makes 1000 bad prayers and we all keep making money downvoting, and hes just trying to waste all our money and review time

So is this what you meant by the escrow? I put collateral on the line, if Im a troll, I lose my collateral and its paid to the reviewers and no new money is given out, if Im not a troll and its good quality content I posted, I get my collateral back and may even get paid from the blockchain with new money? or from a community fund?

First on the escrow:  I wasnt referring to this problem specifically, but yes, I was designing a way to keep the reward sitting in a delayed state while the community reviews it.

You make an excellent point - we dont want to incentivize spam.  The first idea that comes to mind is incetivizing a user to keep their content creator account (IE their nickname pointing to a public key) making it beneficial for them to build up a 'trust score' or 'integrity score' as a content creator.  Basically, the more submissions they make the more each one can be worth.  Maybe their integrity score multiplied * reward is the reward, plus, we can say a very low quality submission (say < .40) slows down the creators ability to add more content.  So if you are doing a great job no delay; the worse of a submission, the bigger delay before you can re-submit new work. 

Not sure on this one, open to more ideas.

Great point.

On first sight, this seems like a very nice system! I like the idea of incentivizing people to vote. This is like an automatic bounty system.

And users with a high utxo weight are likely to be loyal to BiblePay (why else would they have a lot of BBP).

As you say, it would be an interesting economy. If this reaches prod, I hope that we can spread awareness for this in a way that also attracts new users.

Thanks for the bug report; it turns out the fix wasn't really in the wallet and I can clearly see what caused this.

Its fixed and will be checked in within a couple hours.

Rob, is the copy paste issue a Vultr problem? or a Lubuntu problem?

Should I try Xubuntu or Ubuntu-Desktop? and VNC?

Don't forget this also goes out to Google so all the searches that use CPU and masternode are missed with the current title. You need to use keywords people use to find new coins.

I'd take out podc cancer mining because it's not meaningful to newcomers. CPU mining is better and boinc projects are CPU only so fits with podc.

Bitcointalk users search for the keywords masternode and cpu

Scroll through the Announcement subforum and youll notice what keywords coins use:

I found BiblePay by using ctrl F and looking for keyword CPU

Production Proposals / Re: Ban Slovakia from Talking for 6 months

I agree his posts are generally negative.

I also agree with Sun,  as Christians we are called to "love our enemies, and pray for those that persecute you".

This proposal seems inappropriate, at best it will stop some of his comments, he can always create new accounts.

Production Proposals / Re: New Exchange Proposal - Add new Biblepay Exchange

Hi Everyone,

As I stated in my last post, We're still a bit short in the New Exchange Fund, so I'll be requesting funds to recoup that until we are in the green again. This is the funds address:
https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/3AojspQgpSSDdPJJANj4UtSBFUZy8YdduT

The only important number is the 'total received' number (because of change addresses and me having paid for a listing with my own BTC by accident). We paid 3 BTC on costs for getting listed on exchanges. So we're about 0.3 short still.

Here is an overview of all the sales (which I posted before). The number is a bit off with the New Exchange Fund address because of trading fees and withdrawal fees:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1A0ZUlpMaw7pZ5YQEiLN7WoqZP1bq5VOcEZGzMS8KWlw/edit#gid=0

Anyway, I'm requesting funds to recoup the costs I personally made until we're at 3 BTC. Everything above that will be put in the 'New New Exchange Fund'. I want to request 1.5M BBP for this in this superblock. At the current exchange rate, it will probably take 3 superblocks before we're in the green again.
