Nxt General Discussion / Re: How does forging work?

The average total fees is about 66 USD per day, you need a lot of NXT to get a small share of these fees.

Another good interview, thanks :)

I liked your argument about PoS, but you can also make it even stronger; There are almost nothing to make from the fees in NXT.

The average fees given per day is 1329.75 NXT, about 66 USD per day. [1]
Bitcoin on the other end is 2,815,817 USD. [2]

I understand the argument when there is much money involved, but trying to cheat to get a bigger share of the 66 USD seems to be wasteful. There is also talk about making the fees lower...

I was thinking about making a similar server service

Just generate and store your password using a password manager like LastPass, 1Password or Keepass. Same effect.
It kinda defeats the purpose for a brain-wallet if you need to store your password in a file or on a service. Then we could just use a wallet.dat file instead...

Heard of pbkdf2?  That somewhat helps.
Yes, would it be possible to start using pbkdf2 or some similar techniques?

Would it be possible to make it harder to make large rainbow tables? Using other algorithms?

1. Nxt account and userID/contact info for submitter
Forum user: jonny
Nxt account: NXT-3XWR-RVFD-85CK-6JHUH

2. Submission date
Sat Jul 19 2014.

3. A short description of the project with your goals very clearly specified(three sentences max.)
Create native installer for Fedora 20. These installers are called RPM packages.

3b. Long description as needed
RPM packages for Fedora (and similar systems) would ease the installation and could make it simple to keep the system up to date.

RPM packages can also increase the security by signing the packages with keys from developers that have a high level of trust.

Fedora 20 is chosen since I use it for my laptop and my VPS server. Plus I have made RPM packages of Java software before.

4. Specify the target audience
End users running Nxt node on dedicated servers and also desktop users.

5. Budget
4000 NXT for all the code and config files needed to create RPM packages.

6. Specify deadlines
Work done 10 days after the proposal is accepted.

7. Metrics need to be specified
  • Follow Fedora guidlines, install files where they belong on the system
  • Complete .spec file, patches and JPackage script
  • Include a small guide for how to build the RPM packages

8. Potential future work
  • Create a script that makes it easy for developers to build and sign the RPM with their GPG key
  • Create init script that enables NXT to run in the background on boot
  • Create a yum repository to make it easy for users to upgrade
  • Get the packages into the official Fedora repositories
  • Make the RPM work on other RPM systems, like RHEL, SUSE ++
  • Create Debian packages

If these nxt: links support every type of transaction it will be incredibly easy to integrate NXT into all sorts of stuff. Not just sending coins but just clicking a link to open the dialogue to purchase a certain asset, send a message to an address, purchase a good from DGS.. just think of all the use cases.
Great idea! I agree, there are many use cases :)

Thanks for your reply.

Just wondering why you picked those two classes in particular?
I selected these classes since they seemed like the most easy for me to start with, since they appear to have few dependencies and little side effects.

But if you do create unit tests for them, the next logical step will be to rewrite Token.generateToken, Token.parseToken, Hallmark.parseDate and Hallmark.formatDate as those methods look like C and not Java, and with unit tests available it will be safer to clean them up.
I totally agree :)

To avoid duplicate work, please use the simple junit test framework that is waiting as a pull request on bitbucket, https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/pull-request/8/adding-unit-tests-infrastructure-and-some/diff , I have already applied it to the develop branch but it hasn't been released yet.
I will do, thanks for letting me know.

2. Submission date

3. A short description of the project with your goals very clearly specified(three sentences max.)
Create unit tests for classes nxt.peer.Hallmark and nxt.Token.

3b. Long description as needed
Automated tests increase developer confidence and quality. As a bonus for me as a new developer is to learn more about the codebase.

4. Specify the target audience
Developers.

5. Budget
1000 NXT for each class tested, total 2000 NXT for both Hallmark and Token.

6. Specify deadlines
Work done 10 days after the proposal is accepted.

7. Metrics need to be specified
  • Each tested class have a line code coverage higher than 80%
  • Written in Java and using JUnit
  • Fast, independent, no access to external resources

I hallmarked my node running on a VPS because of this asset

I think 1000NXT is more reasonable, to prevent non-performing assets.
+1

I do not know about you people, but personally I have more than one single account (therefore more than one passphrase). If you go with the small screen one I think at least one button allowing you to select the account (no need to show the entire passphrase, simply print a label or something) is a must. A device like this just for one passphrase seems a waste, but maybe I am the strange one.
That sounds like a great idea!

I would not be comfortable to use NxtButton, since I can not know for sure that my password is not sent over the network.

I have deleted more lines of code than I have added during my 2 year at my current position, so my daily lines of code is negative. The ability to solve problems and how many lines of code a developer can write is not related, anyone can write 1000 lines of bad code.
