I'm working with a partner, m3ta, and we will be splitting the bounty. Here's what we've done so far:
• Created Database for ProtoShares blockchain
We are using a modified PHP script from a block explorer to propagate the database, which connects to the ProtoShares bitcoind RPC API, and indexes new blocks in real time.
• Methods for obtaining AngelShares information from the Protoshares blockchain
Includes calculating AGS earned per day per address. Bytemaster suggested that the first transaction listed will be used for AngelShares allocation. In case a user inputs a different address from their wallet than this, we have linked addresses together that are provably owned by the same person, so it will still show their full balance.
• A mistake in our bitcoin.conf file resulted in us having to re-download the block-chain, so we have not been able to test the ProtoShares code with this yet. However, I wrote a simple script in Python that pulls from the blockchain.info API into a database. We are considering using this method instead, as it is much more light-weight and portable.
• Hosted on Amazon EC2 instance
Running off an EBS volume for easy scaling. Currently pointed at AngelShares.info.
We will be debugging our backend today, and moving to front-end. I will give another update tonight.
