General Discussion / Bitshares URL schema [ PROPOSAL ]
« on: November 21, 2018, 02:09:01 pm »
Hi guys.

I'm really really interested in finalizing the BitShares URL/URI schema standard.

For those of you, who are not aware: Currently, BitShares lack any URL schema, meaning that no bitshares software can generate or read QR codes. If we do settle on a schema, all the software will be able to actually read/write such QR codes, which would be of a great convenience to the users.

I've outlined my proposed schema here:

However, I do not believe this issue will get read by all the interesting parties, so I'm also starting this thread to get more attention.

NOTE: Some clients have gone ahead and implemented their own incompatible schemas, which were never agreed on. This is a very troubling situation, so the faster we reach some agreement on this issue, the better.

(TODO: update this post with relevant/current proposal)

If you guys are interested in the latest news about CITADEL Desktop Wallet, look no further:

(I kinda enjoy making those posts, markdown + screenshots is a pretty cool combo)

Anyways, I'm still lurking around this thread if anyone has any questions or feature requests.

SteemIt post:

* Improved connection handling.
* Implement BitShares Voting.
* Add ability to Sweep Private Keys.
* Fix erroneous price display in Market tab.
* Merge upstream python-bitshares to latest version.

There's now a 64-bit build, which requires Windows 7+. (Customminer :)

I've written a more use-friendly thread on steam, and you can checkout github for full changelog.

Please do ask questions, report problems, and request features.

Can you share some screenshots of the QT client please? Thanks

Sure thing, here's a random assortment of screens and OSes

You can buy an account via the above, after changing the master password you'll have full control of the account.

Ahh, excellent! Thank you very much for the heads-up!

Update: done!

To be fair, eventually older operating systems which don't receive windows updates become highly vulnerable. It's likely that most XP machines won't get meltdown/spectre fixes for example.

Yeah, no argument there. We just feel it's up to Microsoft and its users, not us.


I've seen you contributed a lot in python-bitshares already and I am looking forward to working with you more closely in the future!


Thanks. The whole thing wouldn't be possible without your library. I'm going to throw some more PRs at you, and am too quite eager to work with you more closely.

(I've already been told about a mysterious Telegram dev-channel, but given the current state of Telegram COUPLED with its insistence on collecting phone numbers of its users; I have some doubts about this. So please don't take it the wrong way, but we'll probably have to use github issues / this forum or whatever else to talk. Feel free to guide me somewhere.)

sounds pretty damn sick. any of our devs able to vouch for the source?

That is actually an excellent question, which highlights the importance of keeping your private keys to yourself. Please see above, xeroc's and abit's comment.

Also, please don't hesitate to inspect the source yourself. We've kept ALL changes to the core library visible (checkout my fork) and the source to the client itself is short enough to skim through. When/IF those changes propagate to the upstream, there will be even less things to inspect/verify.

Not bad. Have you made a steemit post here?

Thanks. Not at the moment, not.

I've tried to create a steemit account, but it requires a mobile phone number. This goes strictly against our whole ideology of the CITADEL - which is to use cryptographic and web-of-trust methods to gain reputation and respect; not by giving away personal information to unknown entities.

That is why we have chosen BitShares AND Monero, as both of those align with our ideology very well. Steemit - not so much.

Anyways, thanks for your comment and interest, I'll be happy to hear more of your feedback, obviously.

The readme mentions Windows XP, you're not still using XP right? Time to upgrade or switch to Linux? :D

Our main development platform is Linux.

The Windows XP thing is just the lowest version we support; simply to give our users the widest possible choice.
Forcing people to upgrade their computers/OSes is not something we have any particular interest in.

Here's the new BitShares Desktop Wallet, brought to you by the CITADEL.

Latest version - 0.2.2 -

Downloads: http://citadel2miawoaqw.onion/


Some tech details:

it's written in python, and is heavily based on xeroc's python-bitshares library, it uses QT4 for the UI, so it's easily portable to OSX, Windows and Linux. I'm providing builds for the OSX and Windows versions myself, and the Linux guys are supposed to use the source tarball.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, and report bugs; this is a very RAW first version and we expect lots of failures and problems, to be honest.

However, it already has quite a lot of features, including support for BitShares BLIND TRANSFERS (yeah!).

General Discussion / CITADEL - new BitShares Gateway
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:38:04 pm »
So guys, you all already know what BitShares is, so our regular news post about the benefits of decentralized exchanges wouldn't apply.

Therefore, let's cut to the chase. CITADEL is a new gateway (similar to OpenLedger or BlockTrades), with all the regular bells and whistles.
We host bitshares-ui webwallet, we have a full witness node, we have a gateway with our UIAs.

At the moment, there's only 1 coin - Monero - with more to come online later. So, XMR fans, you can finally trade XMR on BitShares.

But there's much more.

The most important thing we want to bring is our strong dedication to privacy and anonymity. Please read our manifesto on the website, it's quite telling.

To that end, we offer a BitShares witness node running as TOR hidden service; all our APIs are accessible as TOR hidden services as well.

We also bring you new BitShares desktop client, which deserves its own thread, which is here. http://citadel2miawoaqw.onion/

We are in the alpha stage. Please report bugs and ask questions, we'll try to improve everything, based on your feedback
