is there a download to the current DB at blocks >1,000,000 ?
that may in fact be faster than the rescan wich may take several hours

interessant- ich habe auch bemerkt, daß einige EDINAR wie magisch in meinem account erschienen. Ich habe dann auf den webseiten geschaut, was es damit auf sich hat, bin aber so gar nicht schlau daraus geworden.
Je mehr ich hin und her geleitet wurde, um so nebulöser wurde das alles.
Das ist an und für sich schon ein sehr schlechtes Zeichen.

Mir scheint das ein verdammtes Spiegelkabinett zu sein, wo außer Zerrspiegeln nix Reales zu finden ist.

Interessant die Verbindung zu dem FIMventure account!

Until the massive adoption of NXT 1.0 NXT 2.0 will be ready and it will permit much more scalability.
How many transactions per second do you think NXT 2.0 may allow?

I dont now for sure, but a pretty sure that they have a solution (just read nxt.org/roadmap) and after the release of NXT-Russia National Settlement Depository we will see all modifications to put forward NXT. If bitcoin ,now the more adopted globally, can handle the total demand, i think NXT who have almost 10 times the Bitcoin capacity can handle the demand for a entire country. If bitcoin can handles world demand, NXT can do 10 times more or far beyond. Untill the total adoption by all the country we will see the perfect gap time to implement other functions to scale much more and Im pretty sure that NXT devs can do it based on what they already have made.

NXT have more than 2  years working without any problems ;

The russian guys mentioned in one of the press releases that they have been able to push the NXT platform to 800 transactions per second in a lab environment!

I think this is something we should pick up and expand on!

I just checked- they don't seem to have NXT any more ?!

Hi Noble, welcome, my thinking is that if you like the 30M residents of Venezuela to start using NXT tomorrow then this is not practical of course.
However, if you like to start to discuss the challenges, build the tools and experiment with the technology on a small scale, then yes, the NXT technology can do that for you and in the long range can also scale to serve the whole population of Venezuela.


Hi Noble - we here are all convinced that the NXT tech platform is what can bring solutions for the future, especially for poor Venezuela that is being torn apart between all kinds of wolves.
Many in the crypto communities have been wondering why crisis torn countries like Greece or more recently Venezuela have not turned to cryptos already-
but things are moving slowly sometimes, esp. where whole countries are involved.
As Riker has said- we are not at a status righ tnow where we could roll out a mass scale solution for a whole country tomorrow.
But.
There is the potential within the NXT platform to do exactly that, albeit on a slighty longer time scale.
Maybe 1 or 2 years. Rough guess, no robust predicition.

On the other hand, for some isolated use cases, solutions may already exist.

You have come to the right place.

Hello Alex!

Good to have you on board!

Nxt General Discussion / Re: NXT 2.0 crowfunding will be a failure
« on: May 24, 2016, 03:08:03 pm »
Just a reminder in case you don't know. LISK never raised $6m, they just said they did. Don't expect to get a funding they said to have, because it was never there.

I just don't want developers to quit after the LISK scam is confirmed. I hope NXT raises a lot, but I don't want anyone's hopes to depend on it.

I find these statements a bit lacking in substance- can you specify further?
Please note: I did not invest in LISK because I am sceptical about several aspects of it, but I have not seen any evidence for claims as the above.
Have you?

Beautiful.

Indeed! I really admire this project!

11

This looks like an extremely cool thing! Good Luck!  :D

12
sorry for bad explain, but very hard for me  :D
 
you can swap asset for waves but for 1 MAY, if you need Waves!!
 

errrmm.. soryy I have to ask for specifics:

You mean that starting from 1 MAY, it is possible to swap assets?
And then for how long? Until 31 MAY?

This is my impression, can you confirm?

Seems like I cannot connect from the ISP I am using now (public internet). Crap.
Oh well, I'll try when I get home.

no no was a bad setting after an update ! try now but change in the "start at" to "nxt3d home"... will work!
thank you for your registration  :D

sorry I don't seem to get in .. what is a bit weird is taht after trying it, the viewer sets this into the 'Start at' field:

nxt3d home/128/128/0

But myself I only entered 'nxt3d home'

meh.. sorry I need to go.. I will try again tomorrow!

normal login to the web site works by the way..

do you have problems to connect?

Yes, the login says 'incomplete' - I am using the info from the confirmatin email:

sorry about that- tried but didn't get in, I made two accounts but it kept saying: Incomplete Login credentials - check username and password

what am i doing wrong?

Thanks!

maybe this is the right place to bounce this around. as this was raised in the other thread.

This conceptual difference between API and Protocol keeps bugging me.
I am wondering what there is in terms of documentation- I know there was some wiki stuff documentig the API, but I don't know the status.

Would there be any beneifit in having a bunch of UML diagrams as a first step towards enabling access by a broader dev base and language agnostic protocol specs?

17

"Businesses" in this context, at least when I am talking about it, doesn't mean "large corporations", which seems implied in this sentence.
It means ANY business, and that can also be a small business or a single entrepeneur.

Nxt has a few quirks that definitely are making it more difficult for them to come aboard.

NXT2.0 will have the potential to offer services for thousands of small and medium businesses- that can become a very powerful thing.
It is a bit of a fallacy to assoicate 'business' always with names like Siemens or General Motors.

Farl4bit is a nice example- and ther ehave been at least half a dozen small businesses that tried to do business on NXT.
Wasn't there a bakery, and NXT-Cafe?

That is true.  I wrote a Java implementation of bitcoind (JavaBitcoin).  That was possible because the Bitcoin protocol is pretty static.  But I still had to crawl through the bitcoind C++ code due to the lack of protocol documentation (the bitcoind developers maintain that the code IS the documentation, which means the protocol potentially changes each time the code is updated).

The same is true for NRS.  You would have to crawl through the Java implementation to determine the protocol.  And you would have to precisely emulate the account processing to ensure the balances are correct after each block (this is not as simple as it sounds).  And Nxt is still evolving with new transaction types and API functions every release.  In effect, you would be chasing a moving target.

Well thanks, that is what I wanted to express but failed to put into words.

Right now, the NXT protocol spec *is* the source code, and nothing else.
Getting through a source code in order to implement a protocol is an extremely arduous task, if possible at all, and such an MO is simply not on par wih a proper definition of a protocol.
In order to take it to another level, a language agnostic protocol spec is needed.

As I see it, doing an IPO for NXT2.0 would be very helpful, especially in light of the apparent deadlock NXT seems to be in currently.
Of course, ICO mania is high, and the question will be when/if the market is saturated- but probably there is plenty of room for ICOs so why not.

But- it will certainly be a discontinuity. In fact, I would see it as a complete reboot of NXT as NXT 2.0 - am I completely off there?

In any case, having business interest using such a platform will be very beneficial for all parties involved, but having it run as a community and not as a purely private venture will be much better, also for the businesses involved.

SO an ICO seems to be the way to go, but it is quite a big thing.

I once spent 2-3 months re-implementing NRS into C#. Java is quite similar to C# in many ways, but still the problem was that the core devs kept adding features faster than I could translate them into C#.
If the NRS code would just stand still for a few months or so I'm sure I could do it. I guess it's a nice problem to have in a way. :)

WOW! I am surprised, I was not aware that there are people around in the NXT community that have the ability to do this!

I assumed that the NRS java code is too dense to translate into another language without being an expert in java AND the other language used!
Good, so this shifts the problem to a slightly smaller one - enabling guys like you to keep up by putting a stabilization of the API evolution on the horizon!

Example: A protocol is language agnostic, so there should be no reason why there should not be an NXT implementation in C++ or c.
But obviously, it is currently not really imaginable to have one, so there is still a long way for NXT to grow from API to Protocol...
Why do you think a C++ implementation of Nxt is not imaginable? It seems to me the only things preventing one are the rapid pace of change in Nxt, and the lack of demand.

it is currently not imaginable because there is nobody in the world who could do it, including Jean-Luc.

That is my whole point. So if you grab some C++ books, then re-implement the NXT API from java into C++, you will have made it happen, but I am sure it will take longer than ...
I don't know, what would you say? 1 year? 2 years?

So yes, lack of demand and lack of resources also. Difference between API and Protocol, with a capital 'P'
