Yep, pretty much everyone moved to slack/discord/telegram/etc.

Although truth be told, slack also doesn't have much activity lately.  :'(

Forum was better - everything was on the display, you just come in and see all the activity. Slacks are a walled garden - you can have 1000 active members, yet if you're not logged in, you may think that the project is dying.
Not to mention that google doesn't index chat rooms.

No. Tell your developer friends to stay away from Azure and instead deploy Nxt on DigitalOcean or Linode.  ;)
https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/ppa-the-fastest-way-to-install-nxt-on-ubuntu/

I hope that my Azure trauma will pass some day...


DO - 2 minute deployment
Linode - 3 minute deployment
Azure - 15 minute deployment

And Azure is 3* more expensive.

The only thing that transitions between versions are the blockchain database and a config file. All other files are replaced during an upgrade.

Nxt General Discussion / PPA - the fastest way to install NXT on Ubuntu

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:nxtcrypto/nxt
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nxt nxt-bootstrap-blockchain

On a VPS the process took 1m45s from start to end, but that's mainly because it has a fast internet connection.
If you're on a different distribution, here is the blockchain bootstrap.

What are supernet.exe supernet supernet_mac?
Where can I find the source code for these blobs? My google-fu failed me on this one. :)

James decided to stop posting on Nxtforum for an indefinite time, so he asked to be locked out of his forum account to avoid burning in discussions time he preferred to spend developing. If anyone here wants to discuss his projects or assets, the best would be to do it on SuperNET slack where he can both read and answer.
I'm pretty sure that this story is incorrect. In reality James got angry that for the 3-rd time backwards compatibility got broken and that's why he decided to abandon NXT. ;)
Anyway, jl777 is very active in Waves and SuperNET slacks.
As far as projects go:
- MultiGateway is working well
- SuperNET Lite wallet is working well
- Iguana client is working and is the fastest BTC client so far

Yes, there were busts like NeoDice or InstantDEX, but he's not a scammer by any means.

But yes, I agree that he's slow. And he uses C... Which is not a good choice of language IMO for financial things.
In fact his code is VERY low level, including lack of Makefiles... For example he uses .sh files with "gcc" commands inside to compile his code... WOW! :o
As far as his knowledge of algorithms, math and overall intelligence goes, it's all very high.

No empathy for the persons who created all this?
Skepticism for a story told by a person who forged a certificate, tried to convince everyone using shady incorrect math and in personal life isn't anything like Satoshi.
Until he signs a message with a known Satoshi address, I assume he is lying. Again.

LOL. So you know how a personal life of somebody who is Satoshi has to look like? Matthews and McGregor are lying? Jon Matonis is lying? Gavin Andresen is lying? And Andrew O'Hagan is lying, too? The correspondance with Dave Kleiman that O'Hagan cited is pure fiction? He did sign a lot of messages with a known Satoshi address to prove to these people that he is Satoshi. But he had his very personal reasons to not do it publicly.

Of course it is much cooler in the cryptoscene to ignore the person and its motifs and to demand mathematical proof. But lucklily a genius who is able to invent the blockchain is not a rational machine. It is so sad that he doesn't get the respect he deserves.
I give up. I don't have time, will nor reason to argue. :)

interesting new informations
So did he sign a message with the genesis block for real this time? Without using shady math or forged certificates?

No, it's entirely true. [Or at least very plausible.]
tl;dr - Cops have a technology to steal execute "civil forfeiture" on prepaid debit cards.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Better buy BTC if you want to travel with big amounts of money. :)

Hope the same thing would not happen to NXT :)

THE DAO IS TOO BIG TO FAIL. |

It looks like they're going to recover the founds by forking the network. At least it exposes Eth as a government, not a cryptocurrency.


Don't forget your Nxt history...
I remember. But there is a difference.
Lyaffe and Jean-Luc were like: We don't want to do it, but we'll let you decide.
Vitalik is like: I want to do it, but I can't do it alone.

1. ETH is far from dead.
2. From what I've read it might be possible to recover this funds. Time will tell. It's not 100% certain that The DAO is dead.

According to the 1% Rule, 2000 seems about right.

Lack of empty blocks doesn't give any advantage.
1. Assuming empty block weights 300b, it gives 150MB per year of bloat for 1 minute blocks, which is nothing.
2. Once a cryptocurrency achieves popularity it won't have empty blocks. [how many blocks are empty in LTC?]
3. It decreases security because it's easier to guess who will forge in X blocks.
4. It decreases security because there are no transaction confirmations generated by empty blocks.
5. I'm pretty sure that there are other security implications [I'm pretty sure it'd be easier to undo last blocks if they were empty vs if they were full].

EBE - Evil BitShares Evangelist

If EBE can forge as you, he doesn't want your fees - he simply wants to destroy NXT. As such he could create empty blocks as the person who is about to forge, clogging the network.
Moreover, he could create blocks for 2 fastest forgers, turning blockchain into a blocktree. As NXT is not designed to handle blocktrees, it'd be a bad thing.

Welcome to the forum @transpotimebus21 ;)
If anyone could forge without password then anyone could forge with somebody else's account. It would break PoS completely and it would make DOS attack trivial.
