Tutorial: How to receive Bitcoin donations on your Street Art works. This tutorial explains in 3 steps how to receive Bitcoin donations on your street art works:

Tutorial: How to receive Bitcoin donations on your Street Art works. This tutorial explains in 3 steps how to receive Bitcoin donations on your street art works:


Step 1 — Creating a Bitcoin Portfolio
First, it is necessary to create your wallet , which will generate your reception address (the equivalent of a bank account that belongs to you).
Thanks to this receiving address, you will be able to receive transactions in your wallet.
The Coinomiwallet is one of the easiest to use , available on Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS and Linux.
You are free to use any other wallet: Samurai Wallet , Spot , Electrum … Make sure that the wallet you choose is recognized and trusted because hacks , phishing and scams are commonplace in the world cryptocurrencies.
Download the application .

Once installed, click on “Create new wallet”.

The wallet will generate you your recovery phrase (or “Seed”, which is the private key of your wallet) which is most often a suite of 24 words.

Write down your recovery phrase by hand on a sheet of paper and keep it in a safe place (be careful to keep it private, anyone who owns this sentence becomes the owner of your funds).


Confirm to the wallet that you have correctly noted the recovery phrase and choose a password .
2nd step — Create your QR code visual
From your wallet, you need to generate your QR code of the receiving address .
Go to “Bitcoin BTC” in the wallet.

Click “Receive” (if indicated, choose a reception address “Compatibility” rather than “Default” or “Legacy”).


Bitcoin receive address example1F4bwjr74bmcXwRu53Jh27JRRCWHHd4yrz
You can now retrieve the QR code with a screenshot and save the receiving address .
To put this QR code on your works, there are 2 methods; a very simple and accessible to all (printing on paper and collage) and the second is a little more complicated (cutting stencil) but more durable:
  • The easiest way is to print the QR code on paper with the mention “Bitcoin donations” at the top and your Bitcoin receipt address at the bottom and paste it into your work.

Download this template and add your QR code and receiving address (as above). Check that the address shown corresponds to the QR code by scanning it with a smartphone.
Optional: It is recommended to add your website (or social networks) to allow people to validate that this is your Bitcoin address (and not that of a person posing as you). Of course, this same Bitcoin receiving address must appear on the front page of your site (and in your social networks profile) to allow donors to verify that the funds will be received by you.
Once the sheet is printed, you can paste it on your next street artwork. Prefer flat and smooth surfaces for better adhesion of the poster. We must make sure that it fits in with the signature of the work so that we understand that the gifts are for you.


- The second method is to create a QR code stencil and use a spray bomb to put it in your work.
There are 2 possible cutting techniques: A manual technique that requires some basic DIY. The second technique is to prepare the visual Photoshop and Illustator then to call a provider who will cut the stencil for you.
1st technique — Manual: To make yourself the stencil, you will need a rigid sheet, a cutting support, a cutting scalpel, Masking Tape, a black felt pen, a clamp and a thin square grid.
To make the QR code stencil by hand, see this tutorial .


Once the stencil of QR code is made, make a stencil with the mention “Donate Bitcoin” and add it to the first stencil to understand that this is your Bitcoin reception address. You can write it yourself or use this template (below) that you can print and overlay your rigid sheet.


Once your stencil is ready (“Donate Bitcoin” + QR code), you can put it on your next work with a black paint spray. Prefer flat, smooth and clear surfaces for a better readability of the QR code. We must make sure that the stencil is integrated into the signature of the work to understand that the gifts are for you.
2nd technique — Stencil cutting by a provider: To create a QR code stencil, it is imperative that all the background of the visual is connected to allow cutting of the stencil, for this, it is necessary to go to a site that generates QR compatible stencil code like qrcode-zebra.com


Once on the site, choose the “Text” tab and paste your Bitcoin receipt address and click on “Generate QR code”. Your QR code will appear, but the design will not be the right one. There are a few changes to make. In the “Choose patterns” tab on the left, click on the first pattern (which looks like a square grid), then in “Choose eyes”, click on the first box (the basic square “eyes”). Then, in “Set colors”, choose the color black.
Optional: if you wish to add your logo or signature, you can add it in “Add logo”. The file should be as simple as possible, in black with transparent background that connects (compatible with a stencil cut).
Now that the QR code is ready, you can retrieve it with a screenshot or click on “Dowload PNG” and give your email address to receive the QR code as a PNG file.
Then, on Photoshop, it is necessary to couple the grid of your QR code with this model so that the mention “Donations in Bitcoin” and the 3 “Eyes” square of the QR are compatible for a stencil cut. Use overlapping layers and erase old “eyes”.


Finally, download this special stencil typography and use it to enter your Bitcoin receipt address used on your QR code. Check that the address shown corresponds to the QR code by scanning it with a smartphone.
It is strongly recommended to also add your website (or social networks) to allow people to validate that this is your Bitcoin address (and not that of a person posing as you). Of course, this same Bitcoin receiving address must appear on the front page of your site (and in your social networks profile) to allow donors to verify that the funds will be received by you.
Once the visual is ready and fully compatible for stencil cutting, you can vectorize it in Illustrator and save it in EPS or AI format.
Last step, send this file to a provider who makes stencil cutting.
It’s up to you to choose the provider that best suits your location, price and time. Choose a format that suits your job. For large frescoes, larger formats (A2) are preferable, and for smaller works, smaller sizes (A4).

Once you receive the stencil, you can affix it to your next work with a black paint spray. Prefer flat, smooth and clear surfaces for a better readability of the QR code. We must make sure that it fits in with the signature of the work so that we understand that the gifts are for you.


3 — Last step, communicate.
Let all those who follow your work know that they can now support you financially by sending you Bitcoin donations on your Street Art works. You can use the means you have available, your contacts, your website, your social networks …
To help beginners, here is a tutorial that explains how to buy Bitcoin.
To track the transactions you receive, you can open your wallet regularly to see your balance.
To receive a notification when you receive a donation, you can use your Wallet to track transactions at an address of your choice.
The public can also see your balance received on your address thanks to blockchain explorers.
Here is the balance of a donation address: 3Pboy9ucGEdQUHNu2rrC6RGq4jouRc4Grb
If you receive a lot of donations, it is a good opportunity to communicate on the amount received.
Good luck and good creation!
FAQ
Why use Bitcoin?
The money you receive is 100% in your possession because you are the sole owner of your private key (recovery phrase, or “Seed”), unlike other centralized means of payment (Banks, Paypal, Ulule, Patreon. ..), Bitcoin happens totally of intermediary of confidence.
How do I use Bitcoin?
Thanks to your wallet you create a private key and a public address. The private key (recovery phrase, or “Seed”) is a bit like the key to your digital vault that you need to keep only for yourself. The public address is your RIB to receive transactions, you can share it publicly without problem.
How do I exchange my bitcoins for USD?
You can at any time send your bitcoins on an exchange online ( Coinbase …) to convert them into currency (Euro, Dollar …). You need to create an account on one of these exchange exchanges, convert your funds into the desired currency and then make a transfer to your bank account.
A faster solution may be to use a centralized service provider that offers a Bitcoin wallet connected to a credit card to spend your bitcoins directly ( Wirex , Coinbase …).

Bitcoin Origins

Afternoon, All.
Today marks the eighth anniversary of the publication of the Bitcoin white paper.
As a special tribute, I will provide you with a short story on the origins of the Bitcoin tech.
I've been out of the game for many years, however now I find myself drawn back - in part due to the energy that's being added by the incumbents, in part due to information that's become public over the past year.
I haven't followed the Bitcoin and alt coin tech for the past five or six years. I left about six months before (2).
My last communication with (2) was five years ago which ended in my obliteration of all development emails and long-term exile. Every mention of Bitcoin made me turn the page, change the channel, click away - due to a painful knot of fear in my belly at the very mention of the tech.
As my old memories come back I'm jotting them down so that a roughly decent book on the original Bitcoin development may be created.
The following are a few of these notes.
This is still in early draft form so expect the layout and flow to be cleaned up over time.
Also be aware that the initial release of the Bitcoin white paper and code was what we had cut down to from earlier ideas.
This means that some of the ideas below will not correspond to what would end up being made public.

BitCoin Origins
Six Months In A Leaky Boat
Introduction
I have always found that there’s a vast gulf between knowledge and understanding.
Wherever I looked I’ve found very intelligent folks who had immense knowledge in their subject but with little understanding of what to do with it, how to mould it, how to create something new.
They could only ever iterate incrementally to improve the knowledge in their given field.
Understanding comes from experiences outside of knowledge in a particular subject.
The following story is about a most unique project and the understanding that was used and applied to the e-cash problem which resulted in the experiment called Bitcoin.
It is to show the thought process, stream of consciousness, arguments, examples, concerns and fears that went through our minds has we tussled with this beast and hammered out something that may actually work.
There is no verification of truth here. There is absolutely no evidential proof that I had any part in the project. All evidence was purged in late 2011 - the reason will become apparent. Only (2) should know of my involvement (until now). Take this as just a fictional story if you wish.
Who am I ? I went by the ‘net handle Scronty back then.
scrontsoft.com
I have always been interested in computer and electronic technology since the age of eleven. Seeing what others had made these machines do, and then trying to push it a little bit further out.
Whenever there was a problem to be figured out I would always begin with what the current state of knowledge was - after all, we all stand on the shoulders of all those who have gone before.
Quite often I found that the assumptions folks hold for a particular problem are the things that are holding them back from figuring out a new solution.
So I would begin by questioning peoples basic assumptions on various subjects
This usually resulted in annoying all of these knowledgable folks.
You get the idea.
You see it on every single message board since the mid-nineties onwards.
There’re also a lot of egotistical chips on folks shoulders where you’d find that they’d look down on others and belittle them on topics that they themselves had only just learned a few weeks earlier.
This is particularly true in programming and crypto forums.
Start
A couple of guys worked with an online betting company.
They had a problem.
For punters to use their service they had to provide credit card details and pay for chip tokens.
However, many times a punter would play the online pokey machines, lose all of their money and then reverse the credit card charge saying “It’s unauthorised. It wasn’t me”.
Sometimes the company’s network would not record the funds transfer correctly and so the punters funds were removed from their credit account into the company’s account but no record of it was made on the company’s end - so the punter didn’t receive any play tokens and, again, tried to reverse the charges.
The large credit card issuing companies also actively stopped allowing credit cards to be used for online gambling and began refusing to reverse the charges.
What these guys needed was a way to transfer funds between punters and the online betting companies so that both parties could trust that everything was above board.
That a payment could not be made by mistake and once a payment went through it was unchangeable, irreversible.
(2) had been on the periphery of the cypherpunks group since the mid 1990’s. When I entered the project in early 2008 he had been working on the problem part-time over the past five years. Over the previous year or so he’d been working on the problem full-time. He was writing a white paper for an e-cash system for the online betting/gambling company to use ( or to license out the solution to multiple companies ) plus writing the code for it.
He was attempting to implement a working example of electronic cash.
There were other cryptographers who he was communicating with however it just wouldn’t “work”. There were always too many attack vectors with the solution and even though, from a cryptographic point-of-view, the white paper and code was appropriate, he found it unsatisfactory.
After talking to his friend (3) it was decided that maybe they had their noses too close to the grindstone and that they should find someone who wasn’t a cryptographer to look over the ideas.
The problem is that to find such a person is very difficult. He’d have to be smart enough to understand cryptography (or learn it), also be interested in the subject but also not currently be a cryptographer.
Usually the folks who were smart enough and had an interest were already cryptographers.
Through various IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channels (3) came across me and I ended up being put in touch with (2).
With my work in the Win32 Asm community I’d shown I was smart enough and could figure out the solutions to difficult problems.
Plus I’d made sure my public profile was always dealing with grey-to-white topics (no online gambling stuff).
Request For Help
I was asked to take a look over what had been written in the white paper and see what needed to be changed as the code implementing it just wasn’t working - the pieces wouldn’t fit together or the whole thing would fail if certain pre-conditions in the network weren’t met.
(2) wanted to publish the white paper before the end of the year (2008).
I began reading through the document - understanding very little.
Hashing and encrypting and decrypting and private keys and public keys.
Different types of hashing algorithms, encrypting then hashing and hashing then encrypting.
Oh my!
“Just tell me what I need to change to make it work” - (2) kept asking me.
“I dunno what the [redacted] I’m reading here” - I replied.
(2) thought that maybe he’d made a mistake and he’ll just try and find someone else.
I told him that he’s going about fixing it the wrong way.
“How should it be fixed ?”, he asked.
“Well, first I need to know what I’m reading. So you’re going to have to give me info on the various crypto stuff in here”, I said.
“No no no”, he said. “ If you learn the meaning of the cryptographic jargon you will be influenced by it and would no-longer be the “non-cryptographer” that we need to look over the white paper”.
I told him that without learning the jargon I cannot read the paper in the first place.
Also - as I learn I will understand more and will be able to tell you what you need to change.
If or when it got to the stage that I’d learned too much and also had my nose too close to the grindstone then I could leave the project and he could find someone else to replace me.
He agreed that having me learn a bit about cryptography may be a good idea (:roll-eyes:).
He told me to get started.
I asked where the information was.
He said “Google it”.
I said “Nope. You’ve been working in this area for the past few years so you can give me a link to the websites with the info."
He returned with a list of website links and said to go through that and look at the white paper.
The list had about 109 links in it - bloody [redacted].
One-by-one I began going through the information.
After a few weeks I’d gone through about half-a-dozen papers/websites which hadn’t cleared up anything.
Once three or four weeks had gone by I threw my hands up in disgust and told him “At this rate I’ll be here all year and still not understand all the pieces. You’ve got to filter this down for me. You’ve already read all of these documents and websites so give me a list of the most important docs/websites you think would be helpful in understanding your white paper”.
He came back with a list of about 23 white papers and websites.
“Now list them in the order you think I should read them in”.
He came back with a sorted and filtered list of crypto-docs and websites.
I began reading through them - starting at the first.
Transactions
Given a computer network there had to be transactions sent to a recipient.
The initial white paper was pretty much a shuffling of the various cryptographic e-cash white papers at the time. We knew that when someone wanted to send a payment to another person it would have to be transmitted across a network securely.
But how to solve the double-spend problem ?
A piece of physical paper cash can only be in one place at a time - you cannot double-spend a physical currency note. All current electronic cash solutions relied upon a central server to control the allocation of coin and to make sure no coin could be double-spent.
But if that server went down, or was unaccessible due to a DDOS attack or government intervention ( or someone just tripping over a power cord ) then no more money.
We knew that a coin would initially be minted somehow.
I found most of the methods written in white papers and on websites were rubbish ( Personal opinion here. No disrespect to those who wrote those white papers ).
They either tried to pretend to act as central banks or tried to allow a “mates club” whereby they all agreed who's going to get coin at a particular time.
Kind of like politicians using an "independent" third party to give themselves a pay rise.
We knew that a piece of electronic cash would be minted somehow, however once it was minted how could it be sent to someone else ?
(2) and I went back and forth with a few ideas, going through the physical process of different transaction types one by one and adjusting how a transaction data package would look like.
We began with a single piece of e-cash.
Like a piece of gold, it should be able to cut smaller pieces off of it.
That means by starting with one item we’d end up with two - the piece going to the recipient and the change coming back to the original owner.
I told (2) that when drawn into a diagram it looks like electronic or computer logic gates.
Logic Gates
Except sometimes there can be more outputs than inputs. And in the end it looks like a neural network.
If we had a large piece and were paying that entire amount to someone then the input and output pieces would be the same.
If we had a large piece and were paying a small amount to someone then the input would be the large piece and the outputs would be the amount being paid plus a small piece as change.
As more people are paid we’d end up with a lot of small pieces in our wallet.
If we had a small piece and needed to pay someone a large amount then we could combine multiple small pieces to be equal or larger than the amount to be paid, and refund back to ourselves any change left over.
This means a transaction would have to allow multiple inputs and multiple outputs, with each input signed by the current owners private key and the outputs being the new owners public key.
Transaction Types
One day he came back to me saying his friend (3) wanted to communicate directly with me but he was a super-paranoid fella and I had to encrypt any messages using private/public keys.
It was a [redacted] nightmare.
I had to:
This was all so he could confirm that the message was indeed from me and had not been intercepted or changed.
Then he decided that I’d also have to generate new private/public keys for every single email just in case a previous email had been intercepted.
I told (2) that this just wasn’t going to happen.
I’ve always disliked using command line programs directly and always thought that they should always be executed from a GUI ( Graphical User Interface).
I said “You’re going to be my filter for this project and main conduit in this team. I send emails to you, you communicate with whoever you need to and send their replies back to me. Or you send their requests to me and I reply back through you.
And what’s this annoying command line proggy anyway? What the [redacted] is it doing?
(2) gave me the link to the information - it was in that list of 109 docs/websites but not in the filtered list of 23.
It was to Hal's website where he very clearly explained how something called "Hashcash" worked.
Hals RPOW
From there I went on to Adam's site:
Hashcash
(which was not even in the original list at all).
I read the Hashcash white paper sections until I hit the calculations and my eyes begun to glaze over.
Hashcash
I read the first few paragraphs and knew this was something interesting.
I asked (2) if he could check whether this document was the final version or if there had been improvements/ amendments/ updates to it.
He said he thought I was wasting my time with this and I should continue with the other docs/websites in the list he’d provided me.
I told him that I’m the only one who would know what info is important and to look into the Hashcash origin for me. He came back a couple of days later and said it was confirmed that the public document linked was the final version of the Hashcash paper.
I asked how he could confirm it?
He told me that he’d contacted the original website author Hal and asked him for any updated document and Hal had replied back with the exact same public link.
He’d even copy/pasted Hal’s reply in the email to me.
I said “Wait… What ? …”
“You actually contacted the original author of the reference material ?”
He said “Yep. Who else would I go to to confirm the document, except to the author themselves ?”
I told him it was really quite rare to have someone check with the original author or sources. Most folks read something and take that as fact, or read the reference documents and take those as fact.
If someone read about the Boyer-Moore search algorithm they take it as fact that what they’ve read is the official final solution. I haven’t heard of anyone contacting Boyer or Moore to check for any updates/ improvements/ amendments.
The Boyer-Moore search algorithm is something that went through the rounds on the Win32Asm community forum for a while.
I found this quite intriguing. Even with (2)’s occasional grating personality it would be very useful to have someone who’s prepared to hunt down the original authors like this.
I asked him if he'd contacted the Hashcash author and he said he'd sent emails to every single author of all of the websites/ white papers and only about a dozen or so had ever replied back to him.
I had begun to write up a list of what the various problems were for creating an e-cash system from the other e-cash system white papers and websites I had been studying.
I was still referring back to the white paper (2) had supplied me however it was really just a mishmash of what everyone else had been doing over the years.
Hence why it failed like all of the others.
One of the problems was a trusted time stamp so that folks would know that funds hadn’t been double-spent. Another was the minting of the tokens in the system and trusting the minting source.
If I recall - practically every single white paper out there ( including the one suppled to me ) used a trusted third party as the source for a time stamp and a convoluted method to check it hadn’t been tampered with.
And the minting either used a trusted third party to generate coins on a regular basis or had a network of nodes agree on how many tokens to generate and give to each other.
(2) said that we need to use the trusted third parties because how else can we trust the time stamp and the minting of the tokens.
I told him he was thinking of it in the wrong way.
You’re assuming a trusted third party is needed, just because every single other cryptographic white paper says that’s how you do it.
But you’re also saying that you can’t rely on a trusted third party because that makes a single point attack vector that can bring the whole system down to its knees.
“Remember Sherlock Holmes” I said. “ ‘When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth ?’.
The assumption of a trusted third party in an functioning e-cash system must be eliminated as impossible for this to work.
So if we cannot have a trusted third party for this, what are our other options ?”
“I have no idea”, (2) replied. “Do you believe this proof-of-work thing you’re looking into can be used for this somehow ?”.
“I dunno. It definitely has some possibilities. It’s made for making sure the data being sent and received comes from a known trusted source and that it hasn’t been tampered with”.
It forces the user computer to generate a hash of the data to find a hash with a prepended number of zeroes. If the hash isn’t found it increments a value and hashes again. It just keeps repeating until a hash is found with the correct number of prepended zeroes.
This means that the user computer has to spend time working on the hashes until it finds one and only then can it stop.
It was designed to eliminate the email spam problem that we all have because a spam-sender would need to use a lot of computing resources to generate hashes for all the emails sent out ( the data that’s hashed includes the recipients email address so a new hash is required for every single email recipient ).
It also has a throttle so that the difficulty in generating a hash can be increased over time as the general computing hardware improves.
The minting problem is also sorted due to the electricity used in generating a hash can be used to mint the e-cash and put it into circulation.
Effectively - the real fiat-currency cost (via electricity consumed) of generating the valid hash is how much e-cash is given to that minter.
It also sets what the price of the minted e-cash should be, as there is a direct correlation between a real-world electricity bill and the digital e-cash amount minted.
Taking the time used to generate the hash with how much energy the cpu used during the generation ( only the time spent on hashing - not other computing resources ) with the local electricity costs of the suburb/county/province/state/nation the minter resides within, then each minter could have a locally-adjusted e-cash value added to their account.
It would mean that someone minting in a country with cheap electricity due to state-subsidised support would receive less e-cash because less real-world fiat currency was expended in the generation of the hash.
So now we had a mechanism in which this e-cash would work.
I'll stop this story here for now and post a follow-up depending upon its reception.
The follow-up will contain some of the details of how the idea of a chain of blocks came about, plus some of the tech that was left out of the initial white paper and public code release ( it was, after all, just the first experiment to check whether this tech would actually work ).
Bitcoin Origins - part 2
As a side-note:
When you read the Bitcoin white paper again, the Introduction, Calculation, Conclusion and References sections were written and edited by (2) and (3).
The Transactions, Timestamp Server, Proof-of-Work, Network, Incentive, Reclaiming Disk Space, Simplified Payment Verification, Combining and Splitting Value and Privacy sections were from text copy/ pasted from emails from me to (2) explaining how each part worked as they were being figured out.
I wrote the Abstract text when (2) asked me to write the Introduction. (2) used it as the Abstract section because he found it too terse for an introduction.
(2) and (3) edited the entire document and removed any double-spaces from it, adding titles to the various sections and adjusting between 2% and 5% for spelling errors and gramma sentence structure.
You can see the original Abstract with double-spacing here: Public Mailing-list Posting
There was a huge misunderstanding between us all during the formation of the white paper which I'll mention next time.
Cheers,

I also do branding for $49. People usually think it's not that important and a logo is enough. But, in reality, if the company is running long enough, you will be doing the branding yourself piece by piece, probably incorrectly. Because there won't be any guidelines or color palettes. Like, when you choose what type of font you want to use in the website or when you create advertisements with no guidelines. Then, the ads will look different from one another. The Facebook page will have a different tone from the website.
The quality of the logo in $49 deal and $29 will be the same. Don't worry about that. But, with branding, you get some extras.
Logo design(from me) will get you the vector and raster files and the source file of the logo(Ai, pdf, svg, eps, png).
With Branding, you'll get something like THIS(mobile) - and a lot of files related to it.

FAQ

  • Do you accept bitcoin?
Sorry, PayPal only.
  • I already have a logo/website. Can you take a look and do the branding without the logo?

I highly recommend that you will also let me work on the logo and take the full-branding package. Even seemingly small changes can sometimes make the logo look better. But, I will be happy to do just the branding-only :)
  • How long does this take?
Tell me how fast you need it. 2 days? a week?
Technically, an hour, maybe. It depends on the logo too. I keep the task in the back of my mind for a day or two. It's art. It's... hard to explain how an idea comes to mind. Also, remember that there could be other client's works queued up too. So, I ask how much time do I have and I'll do it slow. Sometimes I'll work for 15 minutes on a logo and then next 15 minutes will be done on the next day :)

BE AWARE! AN AVALANCHE OF STOCKBROKERS IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN! A NEW COMMISSION-FREE CRYPTO FUTURES MARKET IS ABOUT TO BE LAUNCHED, LET'S MEET DIGITEX





Crypto has been struggling to get accepted into formal financial markets recently, Bitcoin ETF proposals have been rejected by the SEC one after the other. The SEC argues that its main concerns are market price manipulation, security issues on the crypto exchanges, low liquidity and mall relative size of the crypto market.

While it might get some more time to develop more reliable tools on the crypto ecosystem and have SEC approves bitcoin ETF. It is well known that strong future markets help to stabilize volatile prices of many assets such as commodities. Futures markets have to be incentivized to grow further and bring more overall reliability to the crypto ecosystem.

Foreseeing this opportunity, a experimented pit-trader from the London International Financial & Options Exchange (LIFFE) has inspired a crafty team to create the perfect opportunity for crypto futures markets ultimate expansion an growth. They create a concept that will change the current paradigm of crypto futures market. They have created Digitex, the first commission-free futures exchange.


Why futures markets are such a big deal?


Futures markets are one of the most important tools for stabilizing volatile markets. Its relevance for the crypto ecosystem lies in three factors:


But despite its great benefits and low costs, futures market's fees are still too much of a burden for high volume, low profit, margin futures trading strategies. This situation hinders futures market liquidity and turns possible profitable strategies into losing ones after commissions are charged.

Digitex gamechanger commission-free scheme



Digitex will create an Ethereum based token, it will be called DGTX. It will be used to denominate all profits, losses, margin requirements and account balances. Therefore, any trader that wants to participate in the commission-free trading environment of Digitex should own DGTX, thus a great demand is expected from the traders willing to join this unique opportunity.

Having read this much a question yet remain unanswered, how is it possible for an exchange to operate without charging fees? How does it sustain itself?



At this point is when the genie came out of the lamp. Instead of charging fees on traders that bring liquidity to the futures market, Digitex revenue model imposes a small inflationary cost on all token holders that will be widely outweighed with the high demand that the DGTX token will have. Even better, Digitex Futures Exchange will leverage onto the trustless security system of the Ethereum Blockchain to guard account balances. An Ethereum smart contract will hold all account balances, Digitex will inform the Smart Contract about each trader outstanding margin liabilities and profit/losses balance.

In a nutshell, Digitex Futures Exchange will not hold any physical data about traders balance nor it will hold any private key from users. Thus, malicious actors have little to no incentives to attack the Digitex.

The icing on the cake. DGTX holders will be the ones who decide DGTX minting rates


DGTX token issuance will be democratically decided by the DGTX holders through a mechanism leveraged on the Blockchain, this will readily enforce a healthy DGTX token inflation rate, aligning the interest of the DGTX holders with the interest of the Digitex Futures Exchange.


Futures traders' commission-free Utopia, a dream that became true


By creating an ERC-223 token on the Ethereum Blockchain, and by using it as the native currency of the Digitex Futures Exchange, traders will be to enjoy more freedom than ever with a operating scheme that allows them to implement whatever trading strategy they desire without fees-related limitations.


This new high liquid market will attract many traders that must buy DGTX token to cover the margin requirements to open trades. Thus, the inflationary pressure will be more than matched with the high demand for DGTX tokens. Besides, the first two years there will be no issuance of DGTX tokens since all operative cost will be covered through the DGTX ICO. Skeptical traders will have more than plenty time to watch the performance of the Digitex Futures Exchange, but traders will have to keep in mind that the early bird gets the worm.

According to Digitex Futures Exchange projections, in early 2021 the first issuance of DGTX tokens will occur. Traders will vote to decide how many tokens will be minted to cover for software development, servers, staff, premises, marketing, support, and other related costs to keep the platform fully operational. They will do so through a Blockchain-based, Decentralized, Governance Mechanism that will allow DGTX holders to vote with a 1-DGTX/1-vote ratio.

If you have had enough and don't want to waste more time to join this project, go here and get early access. If not keep reading that it just gets better



DGTX token details


Since all profits and losses are denominated in DGTX tokens, each trader have to own enough DGTX to cover his potential losses because the tick value of each Digitex futures contract is one DGTX token.

The owner of DGTX tokens can engage in the buying and selling of liquid futures on the price of the Bitcoin against the USD, Ethereum against the USD, and Litecoin against the USD. Due to the commission-free framework of Digitex, the more active the trader is, the higher the intrinsic value of each DGTX token he has because he is saving the commissions than any other platform would have charged on him for doing the exact same trade.

Let's summarize the key aspects of the DGTX token



DGTX will be the native currency of Digitex The tick value of each Digitex futures is one DGTX
Traders' margin requirements will be covered with their DGTX Account balances are denominated in DGTX tokens
DGTX minting will cover for Digitex operational costs The initial supply will be 1 billion of DGTX tokens. The funds risen in the ICO will cover the costs of Digitex for the first 2 years of operation.
Integration with swap.tech ,0xproject, and bancor.com enables free tradeability of DGTX with BTC, ETH, and other major Cryptocurrencies Traders can eliminate DGTX price risk thanks to DGTX peg system.


Price risk is no longer a burden for traders thanks to DGTX peg system


Hedging is a basic strategy in stock markets to protect portfolios and reduce the negative effects that negative market movements may have on traders investments. Traders that hedge risk on their physical holdings of the underlying instrument (Bitcoin, Ethereum, or any other cryptocurrency) cannot tolerate DGTX token's price affecting their positions.


To protect traders from DGTX price volatility, Digitex Futures Exchange has futures contracts on the price of DGTX that allows traders to lock in their tokens and sell them at current market prices. This great tool allows traders to keep possession of their DGTX tokens to cover their margins and keep trading on the Digitex futures market. The downside of this strategy is that traders will not earn the profit if the DGTX rises because of the tokens being locked at a lower price.

As with any other future contract, the trader has to deposit a margin payment in the currency to which he is pegging the value of DGTX to cover his potential loses on the trade. Because the trader is protecting himself against DGTX price risk, another currency has to be employed to cover margin payments. ETH deposits are handled into an independent account balance smart contract and BTC deposits are converted into RSK and deposited into a separated Account Balance Smart Contract (RSK is a Turing complete sidechain of the bitcoin network).

DGTX token availability


If DGTX token will be the fuel of a high volume and very liquid futures market, it has to be readily available and as frictionless as possible. Some traders may be happy to hold DGTX for the long term, but most traders will buy DGTX tokens only when needed and convert them back to other cryptocurrencies as soon as their positions are closed.


To properly address this situation, Digitex Futures Exchange will integrate 0xproject into its platform. Besides, 20% of the proceeds from token sales will be used to create a liquid market of DGTX tokens to ensure that a enough offers can sustain the expected high bid levels.

Traders on the Digitex Futures Exchange are expected to buy DGTX at the start of each trading session, use the DGTX peg-system to lock in their sale price and convert them into the original cryptocurrency a few hours later when the trading session ends. This workflow will ensure a massive volume of DGTX traffic that will benefit greatly in the long term.

DGTX token supply and distribution



DGTX token issuance model and price projections


DGTX token creation events will occur via a fully auditable Smart Contract, a transparent review of DGTX token supply and event creations will be always available. Digitex team build price projections over these basic assumptions:
  • 2% of traders are whales who buy a total of $150,000 USD worth of DGTX tokens over a 2 year period.
  • 10% of traders are medium-sized traders who buy a total of $15,000 uSD worth od DGTX tokens over a 2 year period
  • 88% of traders are small traders who buy a total of $1,500 USD worth od DGTX tokens over a 2 year period
Quotation source: Digitex white paper page 7-8



Source: Digitex white paper page 8
This is an oversimplified model that doesn't take into account the overall trend in the crypto market. If the market turns bullish the rise in DGTX prices will be more than expected, but if the market is too bearish, the expectations may not be fulfilled even if the right number of traders is reached. Despite all that, the general trend can be depicted in this chart. Moreover, taking into account that BTC has lost more than 60% of his value in 2018, DGTX stands as the 3rd bigger gainer according to coinmarketcap. You can tell from the graph below that investors are excited about the approaching kickstart date.


Source: Coinmarketcap

DGTX token inflation projections


After January 2021, the next 12 months of the operational cost will be covered through the minting of new DGTX tokens. Here we can see a table with the expected effect of the inflation on the value of each DGTX token:


Source: Digitex white paper page 9
The worst case scenario guarantees that if only 1,000 new trader registers during the first 2 years and DGTX price remain stagnant, only 5% of inflation is required to maintain the operational costs for the next 12 months. The effect of 5% inflation over the 0.02% price is negligible. Also, if the best case scenario is met, only 2.3% of inflation will be required to sustain the platform and its effect on the project price will be only of 1 cent per DGTX token. If the project reaches this stage, securing 12 months of development and more marketing will attract thousands more of traders that will increase the demand for DGTX outweighing the inflationary cost of creating that demand. You can tell that their projections might have been too conservative, in September 2018 we got an announcement about their waitlist reaching 100K signups...no wonder why their CEO seems so happy.



Digitex hybrid trustless futures trade platform


Digitex have adopted a smart combination of the best features obtained with centralized matching engines and trustless, decentralized Smart Contracts to held account balances. In the wild future trading pits, each second matters, thus its mandatory to have a system with the smallest latency levels. Also, privacy is required to prevent frontrunners to exploit big orders. Many other desirable characteristics aren't yet available onto on-chain platforms and are only reached on centralized dedicated servers such as margin trading tools, scalability, and high privacy. Therefore, a hybrid model that covers current on-chain shortcomings and have none of the centralized ill-practicing is the smartest approach to leverage this new business model.

Digitex. The oracle for the account balance smart contract



Digitex acts as an Oracle that updates the decentralized Smart Contract that holds traders' account balances. When a trader requests a withdrawal of DGTX tokens, the Smart Contract requests an update to Digitex about the trader's profit and losses, as well as his current margin liabilities on his current matched and unmatched orders. Thus, the Smart Contract can update its available withdraw balance for that trader.

The potential attack vector from the communication of the exchange with the Smart Contract will be prevented by calculating from scratch traders' profit and loss from their matched trades whenever the smart contract asks for an update to a trader's account balance. Thus, a hacker who has somehow gained access to the exchange, will not be able to create the fake matched trades (which needs a counter-party and timestamps) and alter the account's balance of any trader.

How is this hybrid model more beneficial for traders activity


Digitex is unable to freeze or to seize any trader's fund for whatever reason. Pressure from outside authorities, KYC/AML regulators cannot enforce any legal action against the exchange since it actually can't reach trader's funds. Also, Digitex doesn't have access to the private keys of any trader, thus trader's funds cannot be accessed or mismanaged for the exchange.


Final Thoughts


Digitex benefits are of great significance for everyday traders, a commission-free platform will be a substantial improvement on the profit earned in many portfolios. Also, decentralized account balances and the centralized matching engine provides the best of the decentralized blockchain security and the centralized services reliability. The expected latency time for order matching is within the millisecond's scale, also, full privacy and no front-running is expected.

From the traders business perspective, Digitex single tick trading strategies are available for the first time within the crypto ecosystem, this parallel with the market makers will greatly boost market liquidity.

A Steemit blogger use case


From the starting date of the Steemit platform, some bloggers have earned $100K worth of crypto. They have been really excited about crypto for two years, and they think it is time to jump in the futures market. They search for traditional options like BitMEX, GDAX, CryptoFacilities, and some others, but they discourage themselves when they discover that the high volume low margin strategy they have been carefully studied for the last two years is unpracticable on the traditional platforms.

They are frustrated and return to read some posts on Steemit while scrolling the trending page they read about a new futures market platform on a post of the well-known @originalworks account, they read some of the best entries of the weekly contest and they can't stop the big smile that is printed on their faces. Right from the very same source of their first crypto assets, also they get the tool that will provide them the opportunity for testing all the knowledge gathered for the last 2 years. With Digitex they will enter the world of derivatives and start their venture as crypto traders.

    Bitcoin Origins

    Afternoon, All.
    Today marks the eighth anniversary of the publication of the Bitcoin white paper.
    As a special tribute, I will provide you with a short story on the origins of the Bitcoin tech.
    I've been out of the game for many years, however now I find myself drawn back - in part due to the energy that's being added by the incumbents, in part due to information that's become public over the past year.
    I haven't followed the Bitcoin and alt coin tech for the past five or six years. I left about six months before (2).
    My last communication with (2) was five years ago which ended in my obliteration of all development emails and long-term exile. Every mention of Bitcoin made me turn the page, change the channel, click away - due to a painful knot of fear in my belly at the very mention of the tech.
    As my old memories come back I'm jotting them down so that a roughly decent book on the original Bitcoin development may be created.
    The following are a few of these notes.
    This is still in early draft form so expect the layout and flow to be cleaned up over time.
    Also be aware that the initial release of the Bitcoin white paper and code was what we had cut down to from earlier ideas.
    This means that some of the ideas below will not correspond to what would end up being made public.
    Bitcoin Logo
    BitCoin Origins
    Six Months In A Leaky Boat
    Introduction
    I have always found that there’s a vast gulf between knowledge and understanding.
    Wherever I looked I’ve found very intelligent folks who had immense knowledge in their subject but with little understanding of what to do with it, how to mould it, how to create something new.
    They could only ever iterate incrementally to improve the knowledge in their given field.
    Understanding comes from experiences outside of knowledge in a particular subject.
    The following story is about a most unique project and the understanding that was used and applied to the e-cash problem which resulted in the experiment called Bitcoin.
    It is to show the thought process, stream of consciousness, arguments, examples, concerns and fears that went through our minds has we tussled with this beast and hammered out something that may actually work.
    There is no verification of truth here. There is absolutely no evidential proof that I had any part in the project. All evidence was purged in late 2011 - the reason will become apparent. Only (2) should know of my involvement (until now). Take this as just a fictional story if you wish.
    Who am I ? I went by the ‘net handle Scronty back then.
    scrontsoft.com
    I have always been interested in computer and electronic technology since the age of eleven. Seeing what others had made these machines do, and then trying to push it a little bit further out.
    Whenever there was a problem to be figured out I would always begin with what the current state of knowledge was - after all, we all stand on the shoulders of all those who have gone before.
    Quite often I found that the assumptions folks hold for a particular problem are the things that are holding them back from figuring out a new solution.
    So I would begin by questioning peoples basic assumptions on various subjects
    • “What if that wasn’t true ?"
    • "If it didn’t exist what could it be replaced with ?”
    This usually resulted in annoying all of these knowledgable folks.
    • “That’s the way it’s always been”
    • “That’s the best industry standard for this”
    • “All the letters after my name means I’m right and you’re wrong”
    • “That’s what’s written in this book I’m holding”
    • “Everyone quotes from this person so he must be right - so I quote from him as well”
    You get the idea.
    You see it on every single message board since the mid-nineties onwards.
    There’re also a lot of egotistical chips on folks shoulders where you’d find that they’d look down on others and belittle them on topics that they themselves had only just learned a few weeks earlier.
    This is particularly true in programming and crypto forums.
    Start
    A couple of guys worked with an online betting company.
    They had a problem.
    For punters to use their service they had to provide credit card details and pay for chip tokens.
    However, many times a punter would play the online pokey machines, lose all of their money and then reverse the credit card charge saying “It’s unauthorised. It wasn’t me”.
    Sometimes the company’s network would not record the funds transfer correctly and so the punters funds were removed from their credit account into the company’s account but no record of it was made on the company’s end - so the punter didn’t receive any play tokens and, again, tried to reverse the charges.
    The large credit card issuing companies also actively stopped allowing credit cards to be used for online gambling and began refusing to reverse the charges.
    What these guys needed was a way to transfer funds between punters and the online betting companies so that both parties could trust that everything was above board.
    That a payment could not be made by mistake and once a payment went through it was unchangeable, irreversible.
    (2) had been on the periphery of the cypherpunks group since the mid 1990’s. When I entered the project in early 2008 he had been working on the problem part-time over the past five years. Over the previous year or so he’d been working on the problem full-time. He was writing a white paper for an e-cash system for the online betting/gambling company to use ( or to license out the solution to multiple companies ) plus writing the code for it.
    He was attempting to implement a working example of electronic cash.
    There were other cryptographers who he was communicating with however it just wouldn’t “work”. There were always too many attack vectors with the solution and even though, from a cryptographic point-of-view, the white paper and code was appropriate, he found it unsatisfactory.
    After talking to his friend (3) it was decided that maybe they had their noses too close to the grindstone and that they should find someone who wasn’t a cryptographer to look over the ideas.
    The problem is that to find such a person is very difficult. He’d have to be smart enough to understand cryptography (or learn it), also be interested in the subject but also not currently be a cryptographer.
    Usually the folks who were smart enough and had an interest were already cryptographers.
    Through various IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channels (3) came across me and I ended up being put in touch with (2).
    With my work in the Win32 Asm community I’d shown I was smart enough and could figure out the solutions to difficult problems.
    Plus I’d made sure my public profile was always dealing with grey-to-white topics (no online gambling stuff).
    Request For Help
    I was asked to take a look over what had been written in the white paper and see what needed to be changed as the code implementing it just wasn’t working - the pieces wouldn’t fit together or the whole thing would fail if certain pre-conditions in the network weren’t met.
    (2) wanted to publish the white paper before the end of the year (2008).
    I began reading through the document - understanding very little.
    Hashing and encrypting and decrypting and private keys and public keys.
    Different types of hashing algorithms, encrypting then hashing and hashing then encrypting.
    Oh my!
    “Just tell me what I need to change to make it work” - (2) kept asking me.
    “I dunno what the [redacted] I’m reading here” - I replied.
    (2) thought that maybe he’d made a mistake and he’ll just try and find someone else.
    I told him that he’s going about fixing it the wrong way.
    “How should it be fixed ?”, he asked.
    “Well, first I need to know what I’m reading. So you’re going to have to give me info on the various crypto stuff in here”, I said.
    “No no no”, he said. “ If you learn the meaning of the cryptographic jargon you will be influenced by it and would no-longer be the “non-cryptographer” that we need to look over the white paper”.
    I told him that without learning the jargon I cannot read the paper in the first place.
    Also - as I learn I will understand more and will be able to tell you what you need to change.
    If or when it got to the stage that I’d learned too much and also had my nose too close to the grindstone then I could leave the project and he could find someone else to replace me.
    He agreed that having me learn a bit about cryptography may be a good idea (:roll-eyes:).
    He told me to get started.
    I asked where the information was.
    He said “Google it”.
    I said “Nope. You’ve been working in this area for the past few years so you can give me a link to the websites with the info."
    He returned with a list of website links and said to go through that and look at the white paper.
    The list had about 109 links in it - bloody [redacted].
    One-by-one I began going through the information.
    After a few weeks I’d gone through about half-a-dozen papers/websites which hadn’t cleared up anything.
    Once three or four weeks had gone by I threw my hands up in disgust and told him “At this rate I’ll be here all year and still not understand all the pieces. You’ve got to filter this down for me. You’ve already read all of these documents and websites so give me a list of the most important docs/websites you think would be helpful in understanding your white paper”.
    He came back with a list of about 23 white papers and websites.
    “Now list them in the order you think I should read them in”.
    He came back with a sorted and filtered list of crypto-docs and websites.
    I began reading through them - starting at the first.
    Transactions
    Given a computer network there had to be transactions sent to a recipient.
    The initial white paper was pretty much a shuffling of the various cryptographic e-cash white papers at the time. We knew that when someone wanted to send a payment to another person it would have to be transmitted across a network securely.
    But how to solve the double-spend problem ?
    A piece of physical paper cash can only be in one place at a time - you cannot double-spend a physical currency note. All current electronic cash solutions relied upon a central server to control the allocation of coin and to make sure no coin could be double-spent.
    But if that server went down, or was unaccessible due to a DDOS attack or government intervention ( or someone just tripping over a power cord ) then no more money.
    We knew that a coin would initially be minted somehow.
    I found most of the methods written in white papers and on websites were rubbish ( Personal opinion here. No disrespect to those who wrote those white papers ).
    They either tried to pretend to act as central banks or tried to allow a “mates club” whereby they all agreed who's going to get coin at a particular time.
    Kind of like politicians using an "independent" third party to give themselves a pay rise.
    We knew that a piece of electronic cash would be minted somehow, however once it was minted how could it be sent to someone else ?
    (2) and I went back and forth with a few ideas, going through the physical process of different transaction types one by one and adjusting how a transaction data package would look like.
    We began with a single piece of e-cash.
    Like a piece of gold, it should be able to cut smaller pieces off of it.
    That means by starting with one item we’d end up with two - the piece going to the recipient and the change coming back to the original owner.
    I told (2) that when drawn into a diagram it looks like electronic or computer logic gates.
    Logic Gates
    Except sometimes there can be more outputs than inputs. And in the end it looks like a neural network.
    If we had a large piece and were paying that entire amount to someone then the input and output pieces would be the same.
    If we had a large piece and were paying a small amount to someone then the input would be the large piece and the outputs would be the amount being paid plus a small piece as change.
    As more people are paid we’d end up with a lot of small pieces in our wallet.
    If we had a small piece and needed to pay someone a large amount then we could combine multiple small pieces to be equal or larger than the amount to be paid, and refund back to ourselves any change left over.
    This means a transaction would have to allow multiple inputs and multiple outputs, with each input signed by the current owners private key and the outputs being the new owners public key.
    Transaction Types
    One day he came back to me saying his friend (3) wanted to communicate directly with me but he was a super-paranoid fella and I had to encrypt any messages using private/public keys.
    It was a [redacted] nightmare.
    I had to:
    • Generate the private/public keys
    • Make sure the public key was sent to a very specific location so that we could “trust” that the public key was valid
    • Use this quirky little command line proggy where I included my email address plus a link to the private key
    • Embed the generated data into the email
    This was all so he could confirm that the message was indeed from me and had not been intercepted or changed.
    Then he decided that I’d also have to generate new private/public keys for every single email just in case a previous email had been intercepted.
    I told (2) that this just wasn’t going to happen.
    I’ve always disliked using command line programs directly and always thought that they should always be executed from a GUI ( Graphical User Interface).
    I said “You’re going to be my filter for this project and main conduit in this team. I send emails to you, you communicate with whoever you need to and send their replies back to me. Or you send their requests to me and I reply back through you.
    And what’s this annoying command line proggy anyway? What the [redacted] is it doing?
    (2) gave me the link to the information - it was in that list of 109 docs/websites but not in the filtered list of 23.
    It was to Hal's website where he very clearly explained how something called "Hashcash" worked.
    Hals RPOW
    From there I went on to Adam's site:
    Hashcash
    (which was not even in the original list at all).
    I read the Hashcash white paper sections until I hit the calculations and my eyes begun to glaze over.
    Hashcash
    I read the first few paragraphs and knew this was something interesting.
    I asked (2) if he could check whether this document was the final version or if there had been improvements/ amendments/ updates to it.
    He said he thought I was wasting my time with this and I should continue with the other docs/websites in the list he’d provided me.
    I told him that I’m the only one who would know what info is important and to look into the Hashcash origin for me. He came back a couple of days later and said it was confirmed that the public document linked was the final version of the Hashcash paper.
    I asked how he could confirm it?
    He told me that he’d contacted the original website author Hal and asked him for any updated document and Hal had replied back with the exact same public link.
    He’d even copy/pasted Hal’s reply in the email to me.
    I said “Wait… What ? …”
    “You actually contacted the original author of the reference material ?”
    He said “Yep. Who else would I go to to confirm the document, except to the author themselves ?”
    I told him it was really quite rare to have someone check with the original author or sources. Most folks read something and take that as fact, or read the reference documents and take those as fact.
    If someone read about the Boyer-Moore search algorithm they take it as fact that what they’ve read is the official final solution. I haven’t heard of anyone contacting Boyer or Moore to check for any updates/ improvements/ amendments.
    The Boyer-Moore search algorithm is something that went through the rounds on the Win32Asm community forum for a while.
    I found this quite intriguing. Even with (2)’s occasional grating personality it would be very useful to have someone who’s prepared to hunt down the original authors like this.
    I asked him if he'd contacted the Hashcash author and he said he'd sent emails to every single author of all of the websites/ white papers and only about a dozen or so had ever replied back to him.
    I had begun to write up a list of what the various problems were for creating an e-cash system from the other e-cash system white papers and websites I had been studying.
    I was still referring back to the white paper (2) had supplied me however it was really just a mishmash of what everyone else had been doing over the years.
    Hence why it failed like all of the others.
    One of the problems was a trusted time stamp so that folks would know that funds hadn’t been double-spent. Another was the minting of the tokens in the system and trusting the minting source.
    If I recall - practically every single white paper out there ( including the one suppled to me ) used a trusted third party as the source for a time stamp and a convoluted method to check it hadn’t been tampered with.
    And the minting either used a trusted third party to generate coins on a regular basis or had a network of nodes agree on how many tokens to generate and give to each other.
    (2) said that we need to use the trusted third parties because how else can we trust the time stamp and the minting of the tokens.
    I told him he was thinking of it in the wrong way.
    You’re assuming a trusted third party is needed, just because every single other cryptographic white paper says that’s how you do it.
    But you’re also saying that you can’t rely on a trusted third party because that makes a single point attack vector that can bring the whole system down to its knees.
    “Remember Sherlock Holmes” I said. “ ‘When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth ?’.
    The assumption of a trusted third party in an functioning e-cash system must be eliminated as impossible for this to work.
    So if we cannot have a trusted third party for this, what are our other options ?”
    “I have no idea”, (2) replied. “Do you believe this proof-of-work thing you’re looking into can be used for this somehow ?”.
    “I dunno. It definitely has some possibilities. It’s made for making sure the data being sent and received comes from a known trusted source and that it hasn’t been tampered with”.
    It forces the user computer to generate a hash of the data to find a hash with a prepended number of zeroes. If the hash isn’t found it increments a value and hashes again. It just keeps repeating until a hash is found with the correct number of prepended zeroes.
    This means that the user computer has to spend time working on the hashes until it finds one and only then can it stop.
    It was designed to eliminate the email spam problem that we all have because a spam-sender would need to use a lot of computing resources to generate hashes for all the emails sent out ( the data that’s hashed includes the recipients email address so a new hash is required for every single email recipient ).
    It also has a throttle so that the difficulty in generating a hash can be increased over time as the general computing hardware improves.
    The minting problem is also sorted due to the electricity used in generating a hash can be used to mint the e-cash and put it into circulation.
    Effectively - the real fiat-currency cost (via electricity consumed) of generating the valid hash is how much e-cash is given to that minter.
    It also sets what the price of the minted e-cash should be, as there is a direct correlation between a real-world electricity bill and the digital e-cash amount minted.
    Taking the time used to generate the hash with how much energy the cpu used during the generation ( only the time spent on hashing - not other computing resources ) with the local electricity costs of the suburb/county/province/state/nation the minter resides within, then each minter could have a locally-adjusted e-cash value added to their account.
    It would mean that someone minting in a country with cheap electricity due to state-subsidised support would receive less e-cash because less real-world fiat currency was expended in the generation of the hash.
    So now we had a mechanism in which this e-cash would work.
    I'll stop this story here for now and post a follow-up depending upon its reception.
    The follow-up will contain some of the details of how the idea of a chain of blocks came about, plus some of the tech that was left out of the initial white paper and public code release ( it was, after all, just the first experiment to check whether this tech would actually work ).
    Bitcoin Origins - part 2
    As a side-note:
    When you read the Bitcoin white paper again, the Introduction, Calculation, Conclusion and References sections were written and edited by (2) and (3).
    The Transactions, Timestamp Server, Proof-of-Work, Network, Incentive, Reclaiming Disk Space, Simplified Payment Verification, Combining and Splitting Value and Privacy sections were from text copy/ pasted from emails from me to (2) explaining how each part worked as they were being figured out.
    I wrote the Abstract text when (2) asked me to write the Introduction. (2) used it as the Abstract section because he found it too terse for an introduction.
    (2) and (3) edited the entire document and removed any double-spaces from it, adding titles to the various sections and adjusting between 2% and 5% for spelling errors and gramma sentence structure.
    You can see the original Abstract with double-spacing here: Public Mailing-list Posting
    There was a huge misunderstanding between us all during the formation of the white paper which I'll mention next time.
    Cheers,
    Phil

    I also do branding for $49. People usually think it's not that important and a logo is enough. But, in reality, if the company is running long enough, you will be doing the branding yourself piece by piece, probably incorrectly. Because there won't be any guidelines or color palettes. Like, when you choose what type of font you want to use in the website or when you create advertisements with no guidelines. Then, the ads will look different from one another. The Facebook page will have a different tone from the website.
    The quality of the logo in $49 deal and $29 will be the same. Don't worry about that. But, with branding, you get some extras.
    Logo design(from me) will get you the vector and raster files and the source file of the logo(Ai, pdf, svg, eps, png).
    With Branding, you'll get something like THIS(mobile) - and a lot of files related to it.

    FAQ

    • Do you accept bitcoin?
    Sorry, PayPal only.
    • I already have a logo/website. Can you take a look and do the branding without the logo?
    description price
    Logo only $29
    Branding only $29

    I highly recommend that you will also let me work on the logo and take the full-branding package. Even seemingly small changes can sometimes make the logo look better. But, I will be happy to do just the branding-only :)
    • How long does this take?
    Tell me how fast you need it. 2 days? a week?
    Technically, an hour, maybe. It depends on the logo too. I keep the task in the back of my mind for a day or two. It's art. It's... hard to explain how an idea comes to mind. Also, remember that there could be other client's works queued up too. So, I ask how much time do I have and I'll do it slow. Sometimes I'll work for 15 minutes on a logo and then next 15 minutes will be done on the next day :)

    [OFFER] Original 2D logo design from $25 to $50, depending on satisfaction!

    Hello, /slavelabour! I’m a Japanese hobbyist graphic designer, and I’ve been offering logo design services on a Japanese site called Wow!me, but I want to offer my services here as well.
    Hopefully this'll be the thumbnail image.

    The Gist

    • Logo design
    • 25 AUD or 2500 JPY minimum, with 25 AUD or 2500 JPY max tip
    • 2 weeks of conversation and planning

    Information

    I can make a company, service, or product logo that is free to use and reuse commercially. Samples of my previous work are available here. Depending on how complex the logo should be, I should be able to complete it in two weeks or sooner.
    • Text-based logos
    • Geometric logos
    • Icon-based logos
    • Gradients
    • Color coordination or specified color scheme (with Pantone numbers)
    • Optional: Horizontal, square, vertical, and icon versions
    • Optional: Business card concepts
    I will export the logo as PNGs at any size, as well as an SVG file. While PNG files are standard image files readable on any device, SVG files are vector files, making them easily editable, infinitely scalable, and Illustrator compatible.
    According to DesignQuote’s HowMuchDoesALogoCost.com, this kind of work will typically set you back about $1000 for a student or offshore designer all in all. I'm doing it for at least 25 Australian Dollars or 2500 yen (whichever is cheaper at the time), with a maximum pay-for-what-you-like of up to 25 AUD or 2500 JPY more.

    Credentials

    I have a wealth of volunteer graphic design experience, giving me an edge over typical people who want something designed. I took a course on color coordination at a university while in high school, and my free fonts have been downloaded a total of 497711 times as of 2017-12-25. For something more playful, I have a host of osu! skins available online.

    Why the price?

    • I’m a hobbyist
    Logo design is my hobby, not my day job. And let’s face it, a casual isn’t enough for all purposes, but hopefully it’ll be much, much better than what the average person with an idea for a company, service, or product can produce. You’ll be the judge.
    • My tools are free software
    I don’t use Photoshop or Illustrator for my logo designs, but Inkscape, a free vector graphics editor. But just because the software is free, it doesn’t mean I can’t make great designs with it. In fact, the years of design experience should show.
    • I can’t do 3D computer graphics
    That being said, the closest thing to 3D computer graphics I’ve made is modeling buildings on SketchUp in high school introductory architecture class. That's not to say I can't make logos that pop out, though.
    • I can't make animated logos
    While I have experience in After Effects, putting enough time to make an animated logo would probably be outside the scope of a hobby.

    Methods of payment

    Since I'm still 18, and PayPal Japan won't let me accept payments until I'm 20, here are some methods of payment you can use:
    • Steam credit / game
    • Linden Dollars on Second Life
    • Google Play credit
    Here are some methods of payment you can't use:
    • Bitcoin
    • iTunes credit
    • Amazon gift cards
    • karma
    • exposure
    • pats on the back (although they are appreciated)
    • nudes
    • a car (I can't drive)
    • a romantic dinner
    • pineapples
    • Zimbabwean dollars

Also, remember that there could be other client's works queued up too. So, I ask how much time do I have and I'll do it slow. Sometimes I'll work for 15 minutes on a logo and then next 15 minutes will be done on the next day :)

    I also do branding for $49. People usually think it's not that important and a logo is enough. But, in reality, if the company is running long enough, you will be doing the branding yourself piece by piece, probably incorrectly. Because there won't be any guidelines or color palettes. Like, when you choose what type of font you want to use in the website or when you create advertisements with no guidelines. Then, the ads will look different from one another. The Facebook page will have a different tone from the website.
    The quality of the logo in $49 deal and $29 will be the same. Don't worry about that. But, with branding, you get some extras.
    Logo design(from me) will get you the vector and raster files and the source file of the logo(Ai, pdf, svg, eps, png).
    With Branding, you'll get something like THIS - and a lot of files related to it.

    FAQ

    • Do you accept bitcoin?
    Sorry, PayPal only.
    • I already have a logo/website. Can you take a look and do the branding without the logo?
    description price
    Logo only $29
    Branding only $29
    Branding full $49
    I highly recommend that you will also let me work on the logo and take the full-branding package. Even seemingly small changes can sometimes make the logo look better. But, I will be happy to do just the branding-only :)
    • How long does this take?
