Technical Support / BTSX bitAsset contract support?
« on: September 14, 2014, 12:15:19 am »

I'm trying to properly figure out BTSX, and have been wondering - since users can issue their own bitAsset through BTSX, can you make contracts for the bitassets at all? So I don't have to host a centralized server for such functionality? Or is that thinking too much like ethereum?

Lets say I want to reward users with shares of these bitassets, but I don't want to have to pre-mine the full amount in order to hand it out and become responsible for that full amount of bitAsset - that's a massive amount of centralized power that I don't want over a bitAsset.

Lets say i'm a delegate, and whilst I'm in one of the delegate positions I run a service that rewards users my own bitAsset, but I don't have control over the full 100% of the coins - I only make the contract and can become a  user myself and earn the bitAsset with no unfair advantage.

Do you have any similar advice for users running headless delegates on servers?

Running v0.4.14 of bitshares-x, is it normal that when you log in and press the forward button with no forward history, it'll log you out and the background/logo disappears, switching to white before being loaded again? Actually.. if it's loading these images online, it might be because my internet's being slow that the graphics aren't showing temporarily.

Second thing, when you're entering an amount in a transfer - if you put a comma into the field, it'll say "Wrong Amount". I noticed this when copying my full balance into the transfer field which contained a comma.

why would 2FA not be worth adding immediately as an option on login, to reduce keylogger threat?

If by 2FA you mean something like Google Authenticator with one time use passcodes, that's a solution for authenticating a trusted user to a trusted server resisting eavesdropper playback attacks, if the concern is that the system on which the wallet resides may be compromised it doesn't really help.

We already have technical 2 factor authentication, with the wallet file being one factor and the password being the other.  You need both factors to use the wallet.
Yeah, technically wallet file + password is two required inputs, but having a hardware keyotee identification token that I can physically plug into an usb stick whenever i'm performing an action in the wallet would increase the security massively. Yubikeys also have nfc support, so if we had something similar, you'd be able to only unlock say a mobile wallet if the nfc token is in your hand thats holding the mobile phone.

wouldnt it be like 2fa?
2FA via google auth or yubikey also would be a really handy optional feature.
If there's an opensource 2FA hardware usbkey, perhaps a keyotee implementation could be researched?

bitUSD is trading even higher then it was before because of the the adding of interest. Any predictions how long it will take for it to HOLD a price over 1$? I have seen it happening a few times on bter but then it creeps back down.

bitCNY seems to be where all the action is, although I still don't understand why we are getting so much Chinese interest but very very little from the rest of the world, any thoughts on this? I have to be honest it makes me slightly nervous to see one exchange trade 65-75% of the total volume.
I think it's because btc38's a really good looking chinese exchange.. first up they can comment on cryptos
Then there's this site dedicated to bitshares: we've not really got an equivelant yet..

So what, burn btc for btsx?

Yeah.. it's only 1.5 cents at the moment, I see no problem with this.. I'm assuming it's in place to prevent malicious delegates from spamming the network with thousands of version number updates or something..

I think i just asked a really similar question here:;boardseen#new

So delegates don't get any fees on bitassets and only on btsx? :S

Technical Support / [BTSX Question] Delegate fees only in btsx?
« on: September 11, 2014, 01:36:45 pm »

Are the fees that delegates are paid in only come in the form of BTSX?
Like if i send someone 1 bitUSD or 1 bitBTC, does the delegate get a slice of the fees in said bitasset? Are there fees applied to bitassets? Are fees taken from bitassets switched to btsx?

Cheers :)

I've been researching btsx, and it would appear it's possible for a delegate to raise fees (maybe). Would people be massively opposed to a delegate doing so, but only if they were a charity?

So let me get this straight - if you put someone in a position of trust you think it is "silly" to want to know who they are??? And if they steal something from you, pursuing legal action against them is "silly" too? The "or worse" part was meant to convey they fact that there are bad actors out there who will use non-legal means to get their money back. See the situation with Mark K for example. Not condoning that, but it is a factual statement and a valid deterrent for would-be scammers.
Except a malicious delegate can't steal from you. Perhaps a double spend attack could occur, but anyone doing so would be promptly removed from the list of delegates.

It drives the price of another crypto down whilst pushing the price of btsx up, I support it.

So does simply selling the other crypto tokens for BTSX. The people mining on MineBitShares support BitShares enough to want to hold on to BTSX. If they already support it they can trade on an exchange directly and cut out the middleman.

Edit: I don't know. Maybe there is some weird psychological marketing voodoo going on that I cannot comprehend. Perhaps it would be attractive to people still on the fence about POW vs DPOS. I still think that if you think mining still has some value for the time being, it makes more sense to mine on a well established mining pool and then trade your BTC for BTSX on an exchange.
It's simply just a shortcut from mining hardware directly to btsx, rather than btsx -> whatever is the most profitable coin -> marketplace -> btc -> btsx.

Technical Support / Btsx linux build instructions references old openssl
« on: September 09, 2014, 11:28:37 am »

Whilst reading the build instructions for btsx on linux (, I noticed that it was instructing users to install openssl-1.0.1f - this site states that 1.0.1f is vulnerable to the heartbleed vulnerability.

Can someone update this to reflect a newer version of openssl?

Cheers :)

135 - A virtual mining multi-pool for BitSharesX
Making the unminable, mineable! - Coming Soon

I'm initiating a delegate campaign to support is a mining pool which will direct the miners hashing power to mine the most profitable traditional POW based crypto currencies that is automatically exchanged for BTSX and paid daily to miners.

It’s likely the pool will help attract and retain new members of the crypto community to BitShares, and by automatically selling other crypto currencies to buy BitSharesX, it’ should also have a positive effect on the price.

Am I the only one who doesn't get the appeal of this? You are essentially acting like a middleman in the exchange between the POW tokens and BTSX. Is this just for people who don't want to bother with the "trouble" of trading their POW tokens (mined from an already well established mining pool) for BTSX on an regular exchange? Besides, if a POW miner actually believes in BTSX enough (or even just DPOS) to want to earn BTSX instead of the POW tokens, I would think their smartest move would be to sell their ASICs while they still can.
It drives the price of another crypto down whilst pushing the price of btsx up, I support it.
