It is Petko and Riker that did the work on the light client, they deserve all the credit.

About just running the html/javascript locally by opening the html folder in a browser, there are several complications. By default the javascript submits all queries and forms to localhost:7876, this would need to be changed to some remote node, but then without the java server and the peer networking running locally you don't know which public nodes are currently up and what APIs they support. You would have to hardcode a remote node, or query in javascript some service like peerexplorer. Then, our light client implementation is actually smart and does not submit all requests to the remote node, but only those that don't require the full blockchain, and also enforces that the secret phrase is never submitted by mistake to a remote node by filtering the request data for that parameter. Finally, we want to encourage people to run full nodes, and the default roaming client mode downloads the blockchain in the background, eventually switching to full client mode when done. The roaming mode is a temporary state, unless the user sets the nxt.isLightClient=true to prevent blockchain download and stay as light client permanently.

Would it be possible to start a brand new installation up (for a new user) and have the question "Do you want to download the blockchain and run a full node or run lite client? Click "Full node" or "Lite client"?

Then the startup script could apply nxt.isLightClient=true automatically and the user would always be running a lite client.

I really think there would be enough of us geeks running a full node to be able to cope with lots of lite clients. It would be great for adoption: "the crypto you don't need a blockchain for!".

Like most people, I don't have a copy of the Bitcoin blockchain but I still use Bitcoin with a lite wallet.

So, to summarise:

In light client mode, no matter which node you are connecting to, your passphrase never leaves your computer? Right?

So even an evil node could only receive a signed transaction, but never receive  your passphrase?

If this is the case, this is awesome for adoption  ;D

Just checked  ;D Thanks very much Cassius  :)

Can someone chase up my 0.2 NEXTBOND to SuperBTC please?

Tx number 480695804175712740.


Nice to see that the source is on Github and that jones has looked through it.

Good article too, explaining intents for use of NxtVault. Top job! :)

Edit: good to be able to update via the Play store, too. It's a shame I refuse to enrol in G+, or else I would've left a good review. :-/

You're joking, right? You just guess when the random multiplier is going to go bust during each round and adjust your stake relative to the size of your balls at that point.

What was the Garzik episode, if I may ask?


@durerus: in order to create a secondary national currency that people will have some trust in, it will need to be backed up by something.
Simply issuing a coin and saying "Right, there you go, lads, new national currency" will not work, certainly not with real world financial insitutions.
Want asset backed currency? Best way is gold and silver. Asset backed shit no one can redeem cause it is land and airports will be inflated to infinity. Wanna find a solution that makes Greece rich ASAP? Premined decentralized crypto with limited supply as legal tender. It would be so easy. But you never have an option that you dont consciously see. Dunno if high scalability is techically possible though.
If I understand you correctly, do you mean issue each Greek citizen with an equal amount of pre-mine currency and then people from other countries would pay a fortune for a slice of it because it was only issued to a select group of people in the world?

How do eBay manage removal of restricted content? Do they just have huge team of people constantly searching for drugs and porn on there? You'd have to be an idiot to try and sell illegal drugs on eBay, but the internet is full of them :)

Thanks, ScripterRon!

Isn't that a silly thing to do? Store ID permanently on an unpruneable chain? What if the idiots in the data centre spell your name wrong?

Why does everyone want to jump on a blockchain to store data that's not necessary there? Is it just a new fad: "Oh. Look we could store this on a blockchain, so we will. We're so clever. And smug."

Why use the Bitcoin blockchain FFS? I'm sure people using Bitcoin for financial matters will be pissed off at people bloating their chain for third-party, or abstract, reasons.

I think hallmarking is a stamp that the node is genuine and not malicious. I'm not sure how it works though. It may be possible to run a hallmarked node that is still modified/malicious. Someone else may be better informed than I.

Cunning plan from jonesy......he's a very clever dolphin.

I found a very small silver lining in todays dark clouds of NXT trading:
NXT is currently #4 on volume, we traded over $63,000 in the last 24.


This means that a lot of NXT changed hands today, in the area of 8 million.

And what the hell is Isotope?

Can we also ignore Ripple volume, since that's just a composite of loads of different crypto's in p2p exchanges? That makes NXT volume #3. ;)

Thanks a lot _mr_e. This project has legs! Seconded about always keeping an offline backup of your passphrase. I'm loving the idea of having this app as the default secure passphrase handler and then people can build all kinds of wallets to complement it.

It's baffling why people are dumping. Is there really much better than Nxt? IMHO it should hold a higher price than Bitcoin.
Looks to me like the price of nxt is about to take a big shot upwards, I love nxt and It will be nice to see the price recover at some point, but I really think so much has to be done before non crypto users will be able to apreciate the benefits of this decentralized 2.0
The only downside I can see, well two really, is:

a) that Nxt has been around less time than Bitcoin (but if the network hasn't been hacked in almost two years it's unlikely to have a weakness)


b) Nxt is less anonymous than Bitcoin (hardly a breaking point when you weight up all the benefits of PoS)

Here's hoping for a bunch of crypto 1.0 people switching over to 2.0, erm... too. :)

Such as using a random home mp3 recording for entropy etc.? Yeah, that or diceware.

Now we're getting somewhere here: we're questioning which parts of a CPU can be used to reveal or subvert a users actions. :)

Why is BitShares back up 300K over Nxt after their system was proven to be flawed?  :-\

Nxt continues to work greatly and still gets knocked down by lesser coins.  >:(
Because haven't you heard? Nxt is a scam!

Makes me think that, far from being early adopters, there are a lot of stoopid people in crypto.
