Pub crawl / Re: Is CfB on vacation?

Frohlocke posted this a couple of days ago:

Where is Come-from-Beyond?

General Discussion / Re: Bounties "destroyer" sends the 4 bugs!!!

The next bug outlined is an injection. Meaning that malicious code can be executed on nodes. Which would be very bad of course.

Malicious code could be executed on a client computer (browser, using the standard client) if connected to a malicious node with a "bad" peer name.

CfB are you going to replace this or did you stop for good?

NRS - Official Nxt Releases / Re: NRS v1.5.0e
« on: April 10, 2015, 08:52:57 pm »
I don't know if this has been asked/tested before:

Assuming that the typical home user runs an always-on anti virus scanner without excluding database files (specifically nxt.h2.db), and further assuming that the new possibility of storing a lot of data leads to bad guys deliberately storing malware (or malware patterns) on the bockchain -> could this be used to trigger alarms? Or is the data somehow packaged or encoded (or whatever) and should therefore not raise virus alerts?

Yes, the wasted energy is actually not part of the production cost.
It's like if I fill milk in a bottle, reverse it and fill it in a second time -> would you pay more for my milk because I have higher production costs?
Clearly no, and if securing a coin can be done with PoS then the PoW-energy is like my second fill.

More progress in the battle for POS mindshare?


The post is borderline positive for POS  ;D And then:

Bitcoin derives it's value from the energy the miners HAVE TO expend MINING the coins out of pure maths (And thus solving the DC problem one way). This sets a price floor.

Sounds like the watered down "Bitcoin is backed by electricity" claim. Does it have more validity?

The use of the phrase "floor price" implies that it is a fixed floor price, I don't think that is the case. This used to be devphp's favourite topic IIRC  :D

It doesn't have much validity. A lot of people mine and take the hit on electricity costs - it's another form of speculation.
Bitcoin isn't 'backed' by anything except people's willingness to use it as money, same as NXT, same (arguably) as fiat or shells or 4-ton blocks of limestone (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rai_stones).

Exactly, this price-floor is artificial (or at least not sustainable) because energy costs influence only the supply side (= "I invested x for mining the coin, therefore I'm only selling it for at least x+1"). Energy used/wasted doesn't give an additional value after having secured that coin.
Bitcoin is more valuable than clones because it's acceptance is bigger, the name is worth more, the tools and software built around provide more utility, the overall trust is higher and so forth. Not because more energy has been put into it. The same goes for NXT. Just cloning the codebase and producing NXT2 doesn't mean that NXT will lose value (like some of the BTT trolls state) or that NXT2 will have value.

Doesn't work for me, if I search for a Nxt account or for "Nxt alias google" I just get the normal search results. Switching region on/off doesn't help either.

I believe that's just a preview and it would need to get accepted:
Any input from the community before I submit them? :)

Does BitcoinTalk work for you right now?

Nope. I wonder if it's again a problem with the profile pictures. Theymos re-enabled the avatars yesterday...

As with the countdown that's been progressing all of this month, Jay version 1 is finally ready to go.


check out my new toy: Nxt Live View
Watch blockchain events in real time. I've found it strangely addictive :)

Like both projects a lot and hope you will continue to add features.
Thanks guys!

Just wanted to add that you should also play with -Xmx which sets the maximum heap size.

Use "java -X" to display related parameters.

How do you start the NRS? What is the command line?

Code: [Select]

$ java -Djava.net.preferIPv6Addresses=true -cp classes:lib/*:conf nxt.Nxt

You should play with the "-Xms" parameter.
E.g. add -Xms384m - seems to work fine for me in a Java 8 64bit environment.

I hope you don't mind me pulling data every 1 hour from your website

Not at all - the API is open to be used  :)

Yes, nxt.cloudns.pro points to my server,  but I don't have a connection with the "hcgmg dividend realtime ticker" you mentioned upthread (actually, I don't even know what it is)

General Discussion / Re: nxt.cloudns.pro down
« on: March 05, 2015, 04:14:51 am »
http://nxt.cloudns.pro:7876/ is down and so is the hcgmg dividend realtime ticker  :P

Thanks HCLivess.

nxt.cloudns.pro is up again.
The hosting provider experienced some hardware issues and my server was moved to new hardware.

Cheers, LiQio

Looking at the screenshot it seems that your local blockchain is still in July 2014, please wait until it is up-to-date. You should see your NXT then.

Hi Vishera

Did you enter the exact same passphrase? (Just a small typo will open a different, empty account)
Did you check the balance of your account with a blockexplorer? (e.g. http://nxtexplorer.com)

General Discussion / Re: 8M NXT from hacker acount is moving
« on: February 27, 2015, 12:38:58 pm »
Hate to resurrect old threads, but the hacker seems to have been active over the last couple of weeks.

There's now 4,153,498.50 NXT in NXT-8Z2A-NBQL-EKMX-8HPBG (NXT Reporting or myNXT), with the rest having been split between two other accounts:

NXT-FMKN-5XZ6-2V42-FZ45V, which now has 859,963.00 NXT, and;
NXT-NU5L-TFRE-B6SG-25CE8, which now has 3,000,011.00 NXT.

That's on top of a balance of 325,372.65 NXT that still exists in his original account of NXT-8WJ7-8A2H-MBYN-3W9K4.

You are not entirely correct with the 3M account.
NXT-NU5L-TFRE-B6SG-25CE8 looks like an account belonging to an exchange - it doesn't hold the 3M anymore, they entered and immediately left.

So the hacker might have dumped 3M.
Moreover it might be that the account was frozen, because the 11 Nxt seem to be stuck.

General Discussion / Re: I forged my 1st block today!!!
« on: February 18, 2015, 05:28:20 am »
It took me about 10 days, and it had 12 NXT.
Block ID? I don't believe that you were able to struck a block using only 12NXT.

madmartyk meant that the block "contained" a fee of 12 NXT, not that the forging stake was 12 NXT.

Hi Adenine

I believe you need to use forward slashes (not backslashes) - even if you are on Windows.

E.g. "f:/Blockchains/Nxt" instead of "f:\Blockchains\Nxt"

Nxt Helpdesk / Re: Running NRS on a remote server
« on: February 09, 2015, 05:22:12 am »
@TonyDobbs and @grewalsatinder

You could use the API call getForging (see http://localhost:7876/test?requestTag=FORGING) to get the forging state.

If you don't want to always paste your password, you could also use the more general getState from http://localhost:7876/test?requestTag=INFO
It returns a field numberOfUnlockedAccounts corresponding to the amount of currently forging accounts (but no more details).

PS: Guess/hope this bug will be taken care of the next release
PPS: If you're on Windows you could also use NxtLoader - see my signature - it always displays the number of forging accounts
