I added up the hours and it is about 8 hours between the two blocks. The difficulty was not that high so that is curious. Did the mining pool have issues? Is anyone solo mining biblepay?




Might want to check the block chain. Believe it has been hung for 6 hours

The 8 hours is not a coincidence.  The network allows the chain to move on after 8 hours if the daily GSC superblock is not approved.  (Another words, we have a normal chain for 204 blocks per day, and an 8 hour limit on the 205th block).

The reason that block took 8 hours is that I had an issue at vultr (one of my compiles went bad that affected every one of my sancs) and I didnt even know it because I didnt realize that happened.  I added a report to notify me of this going forward.  Yes, if we had more volunteers with sancs it would help alleviate it, but of course we require them to sponsor orphans currently.  We are thinking of having a second tranche of sancs for volunteer only that receive 90% less reward for running a node.  In the next testnet version, our reward to the sancs Decreases to give more of the BBP to utxo miners.  So another words:
Tranche 1 sancs:  Sponsor an orphan and receive 20% of the block reward
Tranche 2 sancs:  Do not sponsor an orphan but receive something like 200 bbp reward etc.

Then all the excess for those seeking ROI look to UTXO for the rewards.  We also lower our monthly governance budget to 5%.  Etc.

Making us more efficient.

Regarding pool mining:  We are wide open now, with merge mined bbp+xmr can theoretically be sourced from any pool - not just foundation or fun now (there is no restriction in the check-block).  Also we still do have solo mining, and that does occasionally kick in but the solo miner is 40* slower than xmrig.

I'm working on a couple new wiki documents to fill the following needs:

-- Those investors looking at biblepay for the first time, why is BIBLEPAY special?

-- Those new users we are losing because they can't even understand any of this stuff at all.  IE retention.  A single page on getting started and what you can expect at the end.
A lot of new users dont even realize what they can get out of BBP at the end.

So on doc 1, I just made v1.0 - Why BBP:
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Why_BiblePay


Please let me know if you can review and if I missed anything etc.

Thanks!

BiblePay vs Bitcoin

Bitcoin is dominated by ASIC miners, BiblePay is CPU Only, anyone can mine!
Bitcoin does not pay you interest for holding it, BiblePay does!
Bitcoin does not have a bug bounty program, BiblePay does!
Bitcoin consumes more electricity than Argentina!
Bitcoin takes 10 minutes to send, BiblePay can send instantly!

===

IN TESTING:

- NFTs! (The first Bitcoin derived coin with NFTs!)
https://wiki.biblepay.org/NFT

- Referrals?
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Referrals

- High risk staking?!

=======================================

BiblePay has been around since 2017, and Rob has been involved building cryptocurrency since 2013

BiblePay is a top 100 coin by code commits, Rob is an amazing software developer, he has combined DASH, Gridcoin, Monero and other ideas into one coin BiblePay (BBP)

Anyone can mine BBP, the algorithm is CPU Only!, it uses RandomX (Moneros algorithm), you actually get 200% mining revenue mining BBP, because you get BBP AND XMR!

You also can get paid for JUST HOLDING your BBP, you could potentially make up to 18% a year in interest that is PAID DAILY -- If you hold BTC, ETH, LTC, DASH or DOGE too, you can DOUBLE THE INTEREST!

BiblePay has donated over $250,000 to charity, at one point sponsoring over 300 orphans a month! BiblePay has also built 13 water wells in Pakistan that help over 8,000 children get water every day!

BiblePay has also donated TENS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF CPU CYCLES to CANCER AND DISEASE RESEARCH!

Just copy pasting a bunch of stuff, hope everyone is well!

Thank you for the compliments Togo.  Every time I look at this list I think of how much work still needs done, but I also feel we are on the horse and riding forward and the work is progressing.

I'll keep working on my new succinct one page getting started guide in the mean time and of course our Harvest release in testnet.

God bless you and everyone here.

I'm working on an ROI calculator that theoretically will show what a portfolio will look like over 10 years with our current UTXO reward % vs. a (non biblepay) USD denominated portfolio with inflation (taking into account the future value of money):

Please experiment with this:

http://foundation.biblepay.org/ROICalculator

Maybe we can put this in our Why BBP and our UTXO Staking docs also to help show a new user the potential differences between a ravaging portfolio due to inflation compared to a BBP UTXO portfolio.

Ok this was unfortunately while I was sleeping, so it passed through the night and I didnt even know this block was delayed.

So I did go through a very high effort last time (hours of work) to create a report to detect this so that I get an email in case I need to do anything (on my sancs for example).  And, the email is working, and the report is working, but it only detected a 10% anomaly which is not enough to trigger the actual email lol.

So let me do some more work on this now; I think the root cause may require a one line code change to sanc-prod to help the sancs vote more (I think the problem is since our network shrunk in size from 200 sancs to 50, there is a param in there that prevents the sancs from voting).

Ill do this today and release a sanc mandatory on this as a leisure.

** State of the Stakes Report  - April 18th, 2021 (prior report Mar 21, 2021)**



Current SOS report:

 "Total BBP": "1018285328.98999991 (last 900,593,260)",  +13%
  "Total BTC": "2.48585492 (2.02)",  +22%
  "Total DASH": "53.55105133 (51.85)",
  "Total DOGE": "87290.87289614 (31289)", +178%
  "Total ETH": "0.37064477 (0)",
  "Total LTC": "49.90807566 (49.9)",
  "Total Foreign": "87397.18852282 (31393)",
  "Total Hybrid BBP": "1181605612.20999987 (1,038,231,204)" +13%


Leaderboard participation:  56

We now have 1.18B BBP locked (up from 13% from 1.03B) - Excellent progress!

Counting our 48 sancs with locked coins this means we have 1.397B locked (out of our supply of 2.6B) or 53% now locked!

Lets keep chipping away at the sell wall on SX.

Our next great chance at success comes from ETHereum.  Maybe some of those that struck it lucky will enter into our space.

As far as the sell side order book in SX, we decreased PHENOMENALLY from 160MM to 30MM, an extremely positive trend.  I even consider it healthy to have a 10-20MM sell side available, meaning that we dont have far to go to be free floating and/or at equilibrium (10MM?) - thank God, and all praise, Honor and Glory to God for clearing out our order book, all praise to the Lion of Judah!

Our DWU is stabilizing at 13.2% for single and 26.4% for hybrid stakes with 1.18B stakes locked.

Overall, blockbuster progress on the exchange side and good progress on the UTXO size.

** Highly Positive for BiblePay **

BiblePay's difficulty for RandomX has been increasing all day, from 10, now to 63.  This is 800% higher than normal!

This is extremely good news, praise God!
