\[Kickstart\] Link - The File Sharing Blockchain Protocol


  • | Tip kornacki

    This sounds like a really cool idea! Donated 3.95 FTC, I’m interested in seeing what this will become.


  • Regular Member | Tip HopeStillFlies

    100 FTC for startsies.

  • | Tip xodexx

    I will donate some FTC to this soonish. I’m guessing we send donations to you Kevlar?


  • | Tip Tuck Fheman

    I’m in.

    A thought …

    [b]Link Mining for Link Protocol[/b]

    What if on a certain day (or more) we all link our miners income together for a specific address(es) Kevlar designates? (for various coins?)

    All proceeds from that days mining will go to the address(es) Kevlar specifies to help fund this project.

    Edit : I missed the pool idea above, that would work too if anyone has the capability … otherwise just changing the payout address at any pool for a time period would be pretty easy.

    Help my simple mind please.

    1. How much linkage would 1 FTC grant you ( since im a moron and dont know how much blockchain that takes up )
    [/quote]

    Dude, some seriously GREAT questions!

    Ready for the answer? I don’t know!!! That’s what your donations will be used to find out though.

    The theoretical answer is 1 Satoshi for the first ~14 bytes, and 1 satoshi for each ~20 bytes thereafter up to the transaction size limit, but even that’s wrong because the client charges a higher fee when there’s a bunch of large transactions in the queue, and I don’t know if you can send a single satoshi to an address as part of a larger transaction. I’m gonna find out today though…

    2. Wouldnt there be longterm implications if FTC deflated? Making it expensive to buy links?
    [/quote]

    Yes! Isn’t that interesting? I mean I go, “Woah…” every time I think about that, how the market will determine how much Linking costs! That’s one of the most interesting aspect to this I think.

    [quote]
    3. How would you add this information? A wallet like interface?
    [/quote]

    For my ‘first pass’ at this, I will actually be using the QT wallet as a bootstrap since it has all the necessary functions needed. I just need to generate the Link encoded addresses, and do a send. For the actual “Link client”, yes. You’ll need to generate an address for spending, and send coins to that address I imagine.

    Web interfaces sound pretty ideal for this too. I can envision Link Publishing sites already.

    [quote]
    btw. a small donation that a miner can is incoming.

    You are AWESOME! Thank you I’ll let you know how it’s used. 🙂

    I had another thought. If you, Kevlar, or anyone else were to set up a p2pool for FTC with a 1% pool fee that went directly toward funding this protocol, I would use it and encourage others to do the same. It could be a good way to get steady support for the project. Also, I will donate 1 FTC for any T shirt I sell on the marketplace. It’s not much, but it’s a start.
    [/quote]

    That’s a very interesting idea! I’m not much for running pools, but maybe some enterprising individual could help out?


  • Spammer Banned | Tip Kevlar

    OMG thank you all SO much for your incredibly generous donations! I’ll be posting throughout the day with my progress after I get in a little SimCity (which I won on the forums last night!!! SO EXCITED!!!)


  • | Tip Tuck Fheman

    Kevlar, if you have a HoboNickel address I will donate a days mining for this project.


  • Spammer Banned | Tip Kevlar

    Sure!

    Do you want me to do a Link on the HBN network as well at some point in my testing? I can. Wouldn’t be hard.


  • Regular Member | Tip Vidicus

    To make good on my matching 100FTC, I just sent 50 more FTC to your donation address! After you get a working client ill send 50 more 😃


  • Spammer Banned | Tip Kevlar

    You guys are awesome.

    I’m encoding the magnet link Tuck suggested now (by hand). I hope to have it embedded in the blockchain sometime this evening, after which time I’ll demonstrate that it can be retrieved.

    Once that’s done, it’ll be time to start writing some code! Should I do reading or publishing first?


  • | Tip kornacki

    I think reading would be a good idea to do first so people can see how it works with the magnet link that you are embedding into the blockchain.

    Not necessary. I just have more HBN than anything else right now.

  • | Tip another_user

    sent 7 ftc, will send some more when can mine some to show my appreciation.


  • Spammer Banned | Tip Kevlar

    Major progress tonight.

    I wrote a NodeJS program to actually generate addresses. It works. WOOOOOOOT!!!

    Details are here: [url=http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php/topic,5558.new.html#new]http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php/topic,5558.new.html#new[/url]

    Next up is to change the version number to FTC, and do a send! I’ll keep you posted.


  • Spammer Banned | Tip Kevlar

    So the first test is over, and while it wasn’t perfect, it was absolutely successful.

    Here’s the transaciton: [url=http://ftc.cryptocoinexplorer.com/tx/cc66ef78c1bcfbaf2a691b3dda77847bc80350ad262f17af38f7950879ecaef2#o2]http://ftc.cryptocoinexplorer.com/tx/cc66ef78c1bcfbaf2a691b3dda77847bc80350ad262f17af38f7950879ecaef2#o2[/url]

    You can see the change address got stuck in the middle of the sequence, ruining the sequence. 😞 Stupid QT client putting change addresses wherever it wants…

    Anyway, some great datapoints came of this.

    First of all, the data:

    [/quote]

    That encoded to the following sequence of FTC addresses:

    Which were all sent a Satoshi in the transaction:

    Now, the client asked me to use 0.32 as the miners fee, which I did. As we all know, this is strictly negotiable, and can probably be significantly reduced. So the total cost to embed this data in the blockchain was 0.32000015.

    So, anyone got a good way to make the QT client NOT charge a fee?


  • Regular Member | Tip zerodrama

    Holy Rising Chikun Batman. Awesome. FLUX module documentation coming.

    Can we use this: [url=http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php/topic,5558.msg42025.html#msg42025]http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php/topic,5558.msg42025.html#msg42025[/url]

    I feel the answer is so obvious that you must be talking about something entirely different, but here it goes …

    Set the fee to 0.00 in settings?
