New byteball user that needs a few bytes to experiment with the platform can still have plenty for transaction fees. For profit making there are probably other projects more relevant to check out. Gridcoin and BiblePay springs to mind
Thanks. I'm asking more on technical side. The witness server listens to requests, I presume via the config option exports.port = 6611 determines that the witness can be accessed externally via requests to that?
In fact, the best is to make your witness as safe as possible by blocking incoming access to minimize the risk of getting hacked and your witness being used maliciously (eg. changing what transactions it sees first)
There's basically nothing more to it, then 😊As Peter says, as long as the witness posts transactions at a regular interval, that the full nodes of the network can use as a sort of "beacon" to determine a transactions position on the main chain, you are pretty much all set and ready to go.
guys, a developer from China develops a web version wallet for Byteball (https://wallet.byteballtalk.com ), it is ready for tryout now, you can use it to create Byteball wallet, backup via keystore and mnemonic, receive bytes and send bytes, check status throuth Byteball explorer, welcome to try and appreciate feedback, for more detail you can read this post at our reddit channel: https://www.reddit.com/r/ByteBall/comments/ae58b4/new_byteball_web_wallet_released_by_community/
Do keep in mind, though, that by using a web-wallet, the control of the private key is effectively in the hands of the developer of the website. Therefore, users should use any web wallet understanding that risk. The developer isn't a Byteball core-team developer and thus, Byteball cannot guarantee safekeeping of users' funds.
It effectively requires the user to be able to check where the private key was generated. Not all users can be expected to be able to validate if the private key was generated locally and never left the users' computer/browser.
Today I managed to get the last nots and bolts to fit together on the Byteball-statistics service of the Chinese hub. It is similar to the newly released page on https://stats.byteball.org but from the perspective of the Chinese hub.Check it out here: https://hub.byteballtalk.cn
If people have suggestions for new distribution methods, please dont be shy. It should have wide reach, include some kind of mechanism to prevent a single user from claiming the distribution more than once and generally address a community or group that is relevant and can potentially contribute to the overall ecosystem.
Maybe break the draw down into 2 tiers of holders .......holders of 50 or more bytes in one draw and smaller holders less than 50 bytes in another draw? This makes it fairer for both the large and small holder 👌🏼
