Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.17.0.2

Project or just idea?


  • Regular Member | Tip jeremiel

    One of the things I’ve noticed is most of the crypto coins just get stashed.

    Is there a project where the goal is to get bloggers or website admins “donate” buttons for feathercoin? You know people donate a tip to a website or blogger. Find a way to put right next to the reddit. Some people have “donation” messages with their websites but I mean more of a click on a link it pops up your wallet and puts the address in and all you have to do is adjust the amount.

    Am I asking for trouble or just ignorant of all of this… :o

    I like this, I like this a lot. Ok community, let’s throw some ideas around.

    i thought of this because a while back there was a kickstarter program(can’t find it anymore) that was trying to find a way to tip blogger and websites. Also, the blogosphere is always looking for away to feed itself. Stuff also spreads like wildfire through it if it’s present easily and cleanly enough.

    Also, for stuff to get used you have to kind of make it easy. Yes converting is annoying right now but we can at least streamline sending. When I setup task for people i usually use the rule of 3. After it takes 3 steps to do something people feel something is a hassle or are annoyed.

    So what would actually be needed to do this…

    [list type=decimal]
    [*]A small feathercoin icon
    [*]A web link identifier that would signify open your wallet. This identifier would associate with your wallet. Something like [b]feathercoin://3957yhui fvb3th38fh3487gf [/b]would be the address
    [*]Your feather coin wallet recognizing a link identifier, opening up and then copying the address into it
    [*]A marketing campaign directed at bloggers and independent websites…
    [/list]

    Of course this could create other problems with something trying to open up your feathercoin wallet from a webaddress. Password protection on your wallet. I’m the firm believer of having several wallets but that’s just me.(walking around wallet and savings)

    The link idea works just great (look up ed2k links, or magnet uri). The thing is, it could open a transaction to an address but you would still have to enter the value and where from you want it transfered.

    In fact this should be both configurable.

    I would say something like this:
    ftc:/6ivPQHp6TY9r3qmQoJktogwUD65TLchdep/1234.1234
    So you could specific an address (always needed) and a value (like a suggestions, or when you pay for something). This way you would instantly make FTC a lot easier to use.

    so in the end this is really a wallet software configuration. A way for the wallet to open an address and just having firefox or IE understand it’s linked to the wallet.

    1.The benefits would be more circulation of coin(more coin circulating the value tends to go up because people are using it aka look at the dollar.)
    2. People would have the wallets up more often so transactions and confirmations “should” come in faster.
    3. Easy adoption for websites as a payment method.

    The biggest challenge though would be securing this so it can’t be scripted into abuse.

    Also, if used for actual payments what are the methods for receipt confirmation? We just had someone give away 1600 FC on the forums. An external or internal way of confirming that would go a long way for shopping carts instead of… “hey? did you get that?” Of course that’s a ways away…

    It would be something to be done in the client. Under windows it’s pretty easy. All it would do is open the client, enter the address (and optional amount) and that’s it. Even if you scripted it, the actual user would still have to click the send button for the actual payment to go through and that is all outside the website.

    Your second part I don’t get. The network confirms “did you get that” on it’s own.

    And then? Doesn’t seem to do anything further when you click ok?

    The idea is great tho!

    Didn’t work for me. it pops up a message but nothing to do with my wallet.

    BTW, does anyone know where I can submit this as a feature request for the ftc wallet? I’m noobish so excuse me.

    I think the topic here will be enough.

    If you want to know for sure, you could send Bushstar a PM.


  • Regular Member | Tip sheepson

    Look!

    http://help.org/

    we need something like this!

    It doesn’t work because it’s just a prompt box 🙂

    Well, someone asked for suggestions on Feathercoin new features. A lot of the stuff looks like UI design choices. I added this to the mix which is would be something to interact with a browser…

    This goes off of ChristianRiesen’s suggestion…

    donation reference link aka drl
    coin-ftc://6y2x6dZNuxrnNBNHmwjxZm63CBthWKZHp1/10.1234

    I’d rather put the coin-ftc in the front instead of just ftc. Don’t want the federal trade commission to come after us…LOL That and it dictates the url usage. So in the future it could also be coin-btc but either way the only thing I really care about is that someone can click on a link at a site to bring up a 2 to 3 click transfer of funds.

    for the one that want the direct wallet it seems that the protocol will need to be registered to be include like the bitcoin, yes bitcoin is

    usual way to start app is via a protocolhandler registration

    [quote]scheme (registerProtocolHandler() only)

    A scheme, such as mailto or web+auth. The scheme must be compared in an ASCII case-insensitive manner by user agents for the purposes of comparing with the scheme part of URLs that they consider against the list of registered handlers.

    The scheme value, if it contains a colon (as in “mailto:”), will never match anything, since schemes don’t contain colons.

    If the registerProtocolHandler() method is invoked with a scheme that is neither a whitelisted scheme nor a scheme whose value starts with the substring “web+” and otherwise contains only lowercase ASCII letters, and whose length is at least five characters (including the “web+” prefix), the user agent must throw a SecurityError exception.

    The following schemes are the whitelisted schemes:

    bitcoin
    irc
    geo
    mailto
    magnet
    mms
    news
    nntp
    sip
    sms
    smsto
    ssh
    tel
    urn
    webcal
    xmpp
    [/quote]

    other technics can be used but will be a bit less clean, like registering a content type (like opening a document)

    I will look at what else is possible in another 20H from now

    Didn’t Mike Hern just get bitcoin: url handler standardized? Let me look…

    Yep. He did. It’s part of the HTM5 spec. https://plus.google.com/100132233764003563318/posts/CDnMpM9iV74

    Let’s NOT reinvent the wheel here. There’s already a specification for doing EXACTLY this here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/URI_Scheme

    Furthermore, since bitcoin: is whitelisted in HTML5, you may want to consider extending the existing specification rather than supporting a parallel one. Although that’s a problem since the most likely registered handler of bitcoin: is going to be the bitcoin client.

    Yup I keep saying it; HTML5 for FTW 🙂

    [code]bitcoin:1Lga7x6ttEbqNaFMatLrnVkXad4BmBznKv [/code]

    ^Copy and paste my address above into an HTML5 compatible browser and it will ask for an application to be opened, I use multibit (still my favourite client) - any amount of BTC will do 🙂
