плохие новости: Byteball is Moscow-based. Given the recent tendencies of the Russian government (attacking and censoring the internet, attempted blocking of telegram for not giving crypto keys, mass surveillance), this is a big problem. The main hub could be compromised, giving every transaction to the Russian government.
Actually if I have copied down the address I’ve sent funds in previously, even if I’ve spent something and the address changes. But if I keep depositing funds to my old address and use that address in attestation etc. it should work I guess.
Yup - you can spend it after a year. The second condition is for safety - after 2 years, if people have still not moved their bytes from their wallets, we will start initiatives to inform people that they should get out the bytes. But a lot of users will have completed the attestations only to get some quick bytes and have uninstalled their wallets after selling their bytes. So to prevent a lot of bytes (more than 73,000 users attested) from being lost forever, there is that safety condition.
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.
