Also, I want to confirm what the mined block amounts should be and what the sanctuary reward should be now after the mandatory. If I'm reading the values right, mined reward went up ~500 BBP and sanctuary reward dropped ~500 BBP? I thought mining reward would move up closer to sanctuary reward and sanctuary reward would stay the same.

Yes you are correct that the intent was to raise the RX heat mined reward up only (and leave sanc rewards the way they were); and that's what I aimed for in this last release however due to a bug in one of our prior releases this is why the sanc rewards ended up going down slightly.

The percentages listed here in "Technical Details" are actually correct now:
https://www.biblepay.org/

I verified them when updating the DWS, deflation rate, and split between sanc and RX reward subsidy.
The error that I found in the code was the sanctuary was receiving 2.5% more than the blockchain allows for, so to make our emissions square at 100% I had to put this figure back to 30.0% to make everything match at 100% (it would not have made sense for me to lower other things to pay for it etc).

So now it is what it is - if the sancs get unhappy they can always enter a vote for a 'tweak' in the future at the expense of another project ; but imho Im pretty happy with the percentages myself and I feel over the next year with our deflation rate temporary increase for dws and our exec masterclock command we will also be able to snap back to our original emission grid at the same time and make everyone happy.

(Not to say everyone will be happy because thats impossible in this business lol).

I created first draft of a RandomX mining guide
https://wiki.biblepay.org/RandomX_Setup

Any and all feedback welcome!

=


The guide looks fine to me. Nice work Togo! 

Suppose you could add the more technical stuff for RandomX   cpu threads, like how much cache is needed per mining thread for optimal performance, then people could do some basic calculations themselfs for their cpu.

https://github.com/tevador/RandomX 

There some more  information.

Also could add in  monerobenchmark  website with alot of diffrent configurations and cpus. https://monerobenchmarks.info/

Anyways just some ideas that i had.

If anyone is interested in sponsoring a subsidized orphan, please see this page:

http://foundation.biblepay.org/SponsorOrphanList


Over the next two weeks I will be adding a few more records and experimenting with increasing match levels.

Im also thinking of adding small, medium and large records to accommodate home user, business and billionaire.

I would like to for example offer a block of 1000 orphans for a billionaire for example.  If for example, we have a billionaire out there who would like to sponsor 1000 from compassion.com, Im willing to set up a BBP match so the person will receive a rebate of say 10million BBP per month, etc, in exchange for the sponsorship.

If anyone knows a person ready to sponsor please send them our way.  And if you are looking to sponsor a child that is in the collage for a discount let me know and Ill consider increasing the match for you.


Reminder:  I still need help with this project in finding deep discount wholesale orphans:

I just added the benchmark link and the github link

and this is correct on the RAM?
"RandomX uses up 256Meg of memory per mining thread"?, Thanks!

I seem to have lost access to the BiblePay.org website for user account togo, I can login but cant really do anything

I wanted to send out email newsletter for mandatory upgrade and Q2 update

If someone else has access and can send, please do!

I went into the WP-admin portal and checked your account.  I increased permissions to Editor- please see if that works; if it does not we may have to increase permissions for the newsletter (but I don't see specific newsletter permissions).

Hey Rob, I logged into the biblepay website, I am able to see all pages now, but I cannot see newsletter plugin hmmm

Screenshot:  https://i.imgur.com/tECZvwW.png

This recent post doesnt look good for Editor role for Newsletter plugin:
https://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-give-access-to-author-to-see-newsletter-plugin-details/

Anyways, Should be pretty easy to setup and send the newsletter, In the past I used to build up the whole thing, but now I just link the Medium article, Can just do a copy of the previous newsletter and change the title, links and text

Hey Rob, were you able to send an email newsletter?

No i dont think so, atleast from what i understand..
So no matter what your cores/threads the miner will allocate little more then 2gb per cpu for fast mode which desktop pcs use.
The higher ram needed  is good to discourage botnets and what not.

Doing some quoting here:

Quote
RandomX can operate in two main modes with different memory requirements:

Fast mode - requires 2080 MiB of shared memory.
Light mode - requires only 256 MiB of shared memory, but runs significantly slower

Quote
16 KiB of L1 cache, 256 KiB of L2 cache and 2 MiB of L3 cache per mining thread
(for optimal performance)

Quote
At least 2.5 GiB of free RAM per NUMA node
Multiple memory channels may be required:
DDR3 memory is limited to about 1500-2000 H/s per channel (depending on frequency and timings)
DDR4 memory is limited to about 4000-6000 H/s per channel (depending on frequency and timings)



The ram usually not a problem.  Whats imortant would be how much cache the cpu has for example why new Ryzen cpus are so good at randomX is because of the high amount of cache they have.

So lets say a intel 9900k 8c/16 threads which has L1 cache 512 KiB, L2 cache 2 MiB, L3 cache 16 MiB. Due to the l2/l3 cache limitations that even though you have 16 threads any more then 8 threads will not give any boost in hashrate.

Then look at lets say 3700x 8c/16t which has L1 cache 512 KiB, L2 cache 4MiB, L3 cache 32 MiB. There we have enough cache to utilize  all the 16 threads for optimal performance.

I saw that our diff spiked to 3.8 earlier, that was very cool to see!
(Also that 3.5MM more burns occurred in DWS, thats also cool, and some traffic hitting SX).

On a side note I was thinking yesterday how nice it would be if we could order pizza with biblepay (for delivery).

I'm going to be checking this endeavor out next.

I think it might be possible to do with our dashpay system:
https://www.bitrefill.com/buy/dominos-usa/?hl=en

But let me check into domino's delivery policies for gift cards, etc.

*** BiblePay Pizza Delivery is LIVE - How do I order PIZZA with BIBLEPAY for Instant Delivery ? ***



1.  Navigate to https://www.bitrefill.com/buy/dominos-usa/?hl=en
2.  Click Buy a gift card (I used the $20 option which was enough for a large pizza with one topping + delivery charges (total=$17))
3.  Click Add to Cart | Cart | Pay with DashPay
4.  When the screen refreshes you will see the Dash address (waiting for payment)
5.  Copy the Dash address to the clipboard
6.  From biblepay, click Tools | Console.  Type:
dashpay dash_pizza_address dash_pizza_amount 1
(The address and amount are quoted on the web page, you should copy those values)
7.  Once the command succeeds you will have the TXID
8.  At this time the bitrefill website will be displaying your Dominos gift card credit card number and PIN
9.  Navigate to 'https://dominos.com'
10.  Order a pizza | Check Out | During Check out select GIFT CARD | Type in the Gift card # you can see in step  8 | Check Out | Deliver to Address

Congratulations!  You just bought a dominos pizza in less than 7 minutes!

In my case, not only did I buy the pizza with BiblePay (for the first time), but the delivery ETA is only 25 minutes (TOTAL).

I'll let you know how the pizza was later.  In my case they are delivery with contactless delivery (meaning they will leave it on the porch).

EDIT:  One cool bonus you get from this:  They have a real time map showing where the driver is etc when you refresh to check on the order.


EDIT II:  I made a wiki page for this so this can be a permanent feature:
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Pizza_Delivery

I have an orphan update and a side project for someone to take on:

I've been trying to negotiate a wholesale rate for orphans through SAI.NGO (Venezuelan orphans), however Steven the President has been affected by coronavirus, and, they are battling civil unrest in the actual orphanage (and government arrests, etc).  So he put our deal on hold until further notice.  That deal was to provide us with $20 per month wholesale orphans With BIOS.

What Id like is for someone to look at globalgiving.org, and see if you can contact a lot of the bigger orphanages (like the one in India), but, we need them to be guidestar certified.  If someone could reach out to them and try to negotiate low rates (IE $25 per month or so) for a block of 30-40 orphans.  The company must have a perfect track record and be at least midsize so people can trust them.  (IE over $1 mil per year revenue and preferably a platinum certification -- not just a globalgiving cert).   And Id like them to be able to create orphan BIOS also such as this one:  https://biblepay.cameroonone.org/bios/70380d46.htm

What Im trying to do is add features to our foundation where we can accept crypto donations that help sponsor orphans monthly or fractionally.  For example, donate now to help 2 orphans.  Or, donate N monthly to help your own personal orphan.  And, Im working on adding matching!  We already have one person willing to match, so we should be able to get this off to a good start.  Im excited about working on the web side of this, so Id appreciate some help on the negotiations.

On a side note, now that I see the way the civil unrest in the word is expanding (and the way I believe - things will unfold into Daniels 70th week), Im very happy we resisted creating a 501c3.  I think we are on the right track now.  Meaning, we can be the coin that accepts crypto donations for charity (not fiat donations).  We'll find a way to match part of these donations (even if its a small match) and execute the charity need with a discount to make the user happy.  Our place can be spending crypto-dollars on charity, for example.    I believe during the years of persecution, the 501c3 list will be a great list of businesses for the Antichrist to start shutting down - starting with churches, etc.

An example of how this might work is this:
John Doe is an old bitcoin miner who has 1 mil extra in bitcoin.  He feels like he should give $100,000 to charity.  What if he could sponsor 100 orphans through us, with a 10% match and a 50% discount (as compared to Compassion.com)?  Not impossible; if we have wholesale rates of $25 per child, John Doe sponsors orphans at a deep discount (as compared to retail at compassion), gains a BBP match towards the orphans, and even receives some BBP as a reward. 
Im thinking the program might be as simple as this:

On our matching side, our compassionate gifters (and interested whales) will give BBP to a fund (escrowed for matching),  held in a matching escrow fund.
John Doe comes along and sponsors 1 orphan at $20 per month - and we promise a 30% match (due to the algorithm quote for the week).
     The way this works is John Doe would pay $20 per month in a form of crypto to us (into the foundation) and receive $6 each month (credited to his account) in BBP (that comes from our matching engine).  John Doe will also receive the distinct orphan BIO in this case, for as long as this relationship continues.

Etc.

I'm going to get started on this and attempt to roll this program out by the end of June.

If i could be of any help regarding the Venezuelan orphans initiative , since i reside here in Venezuela,  please let me know Rob.
There are grave problems in the country and it would be really nice for our community  to be able to help.

That would be cool; well if you want you can try Steven at sai.ngo again - his phone # is 800-563-6099 (Steve M.)  His email is [email protected]
Just ask him about the $20 orphans with dedicated bios, and if he still wants to do it to email [email protected] with a good deadline etc.

Or otherwise you could check out globalgiving.org, and search for Venezuelan orphans, but I prefer if we find a company that they are at least silver or gold certified on guidestar (a lot of the bigger orphanages are certified), as we really need to start upping our game and only yoking ourselves with quality partners.  I think we need to improve our brand from "tattered" to "high quality".

Thank you.

I already contacted Steve about the revival of the project, and i made a list through globalgiving.org concerning Venezuela projects (initially. i wouldnt mind contact other charity organizations globally when i have the time), and i am ready to communicate with each of them.

My main question is what exactly am i negotiating with them ;D
if someone can please explain me clearly  what we offer and what we seek.
Second are we interested to cooperate with any charity program -that meets our criteria- or only orphan based programs?

Thanks Costa.
On what we are negotiating, basically the primary issue with orphan sponsorships is 'single or no parent orphans' cost about $38 to sponsor in most parts of the world.  We are trying to break through that cost with a cheaper alternative (IE say, 30% or more discount) so we can help more net quantity children (and attract more people to this project) - in that vein we would be the go-to- charity for cryptocurrency users (because of the competetive prices and advantages of matching etc).  So I would try to negotiate a deep discount.  Steven has already quoted $20 so go for that with him, but maybe go for $20-$30 with others with a range etc.  I would work with the expectation that we can pay for 20 children monthly (as long as I like the charity too and we vote it in, I will front the [first negotiated timespan of] payments if its a good deal to get it started).

We are definitely interested in other areas of charity in the future, but with our limited budget I think we need to start with orphan charity for now as it seems to be the most magnitude of impact for doing good around the world. But yes we are open to other ideas of course.  I did one charity with hope-for-widows once, but the sancs even voted down my reimbursement - apparently people think its low quality compared to orphans. 

If we break through in price though we should create a thread for future charity ideas (other than orphans).  I love how 100% of our dollars go to children currently however.  (And almost entirely to the beneficiary, according to Todd and Andrew).

Thats great you are also reaching out to other orgs also (other than SAI).

At this point we have two very important requirements:
They need to give us one Bio for each child: https://biblepay.cameroonone.org/bios/70380d46.htm
(The bio should be available from the public internet - not an internal PDF etc).
And two, I would like them to be guidestar certified so our investors feel good about them.

Thank you.
