I'm not sure there is a timeframe. I expect the limit will get increased to "safe" levels first, and at some point down the line it will be removed. Basically don't hold your breath.

I'm glad you shared this. To be fair I think many of the builders are aware of the issues, but have them lower down in their priorities than perhaps they should be. I've never had much luck getting relay to work with anything. Money Button works better but I HATE that to use it on iOS and Safari you have to go into settings and disable a default security setting. That can't just be an accepted workaround.

With a project I’m currently working on, Powping has caused me to stop and think. The advantages of the Powping approach are pretty compelling - eg ease to get started and accessibility to a far broader audience. But I’m interested in exploring hybrid models. For example if a user chooses to put a post onchain, can it be ranked or viewed in some way differently to an offchain post. I haven’t fully fleshed out my thinking yet but this is the kind of idea I’m toying with.

My main motivation when creating Operate was to build on the ideas behind @unwriter's Bitcom, but to improve on those ideas by codifying protocols with a simple scripting language. So implementers don't need to implement anything. They just put data in transactions in a certain way, and using operate can load complex structured objects in a standard way defined in the code. But because Lua is a proper scripting language we can go much further than this. You can write any code you want inside the Ops, so in terms of use cases, if you can code it, Operate can do it. The fundamental approach of Operate is pretty much the same as Run, so there's no reason why Operate can't do tokens and all the things Run is doing. Run has a few more moving parts like a state cache server which means there'd be more work to do the same sort of thing in Operate. But someone could build a competitor to Run on top of Operate.

I've created my own Powping channel "Krafty Bits" for anyone building on Bitcoin. I'll use this channel to announce new updates to my apps and open source tools, you can ask me anything about any of my Elixir or JavaScript libraries, and any other discussion related to the fine art of building on Bitcoin is welcome. Join now: https://powping.com/c/53cbaa528912d075122f1852de5e9a7a3f7904152dc4ecf24e5dd08da5c5ae5a Just remember the rules...

I've released version 0.2.0 of Txbox, which packs a significant new feature. Txbox is now a fully automated Miner API state machine. When adding transactions to Txbox, you can now set the state to one of: * `pending` - for incomplete, draft or off-chain only transactions * `queued` - will be queued up to be pushed directly to your configured miner * `pushed` - miners will be polled until the transaction is confirmed Depending on the given state, Txbox will automatically queue and process the transaction the appropriate way. This gives lots of flexibility to build all kinds of apps. From implementing bip270-like workflows, to high-volume transaction processors, through to off-chain apps like Powping and anything in-between.

I def agree bitcoin can be an authentication system, but there needs to be standards so all wallets can work the same way. I can only imagine what Nielsen would have to say about "sign up with this wallet before you sign in to my app".

Are there any BIP270 supporting wallets out in the wild? (other than the dev build of Electrum SV) I've implemented a BIP270 payment method on Paypresto which needs testing. https://bip270.paypresto.co/

I've given the Paypresto widget a design overhaul. I've stripped the design back quite a bit as I feel a widget like this needs to be sufficiently minimal so that it can fit in to different contexts and always feel integrated with the host app and website.

I'm in about week 4 of keto. Definitely agree with all the benefits listed. Lost weight fast. Dont have the energy dips that would lead to snacking. Have a totally different understand of what hunger even means. In week one I had a killer headache for 1 day, other than that has been plain sailing. Take fibre supplements to sort out any difficulties in the poo department. Not sure how long I'll keep this up though. There is not a day go past where I dont see my family easting a pastry or something for breakfast and I just wish I could. Pizza is the food of gods, and I've tried a keto pizza recipe and it was very disappointing. But not sure what the "after keto" strategy is though, without piling the weight back on.

If you're literally looking for a language to learn to build on BSV, then I'd say its a no brainer - JavaScript. It has the broadest range of tools and is a relatively easy language to learn. But you have options. I'm doing loads with Elixir which can offer you some nice server-side scaling goodies. @stephan's twostack sdk is Dart which I don't know much about but I think is worth looking at if your thinking about cross-platform native app development.

The concept of having one key to access all your apps is great. That should definitely exist, but needs to be able to be implemented with minimum friction, without really getting in the way of developers own design decisions. This seems to go a bit further and is describing one universal protocol for every bit of data and user action. I don't like that. Too opinionated.

People love anything new and shiny. And this works both ways - as quick as folk pick up the latest new thing, they move on just as quick to the next. You may even call it a red queen game :) Powping has given twetch a pow this week, but it may be the other way round next week. Twetch have had good success in reaching out to people outside of the BSV bubble, they've done decent press stuff, have a few celebs playing with the platform and have a team of six (?) working on the app with a good track record of regular improvements. They're smart fellas and I'm sure they'll carry on carrying on in the way they do. Powping has certainly shaken things up though. And has given us all a lot to think about in terms of what even IS a bitcoin app.

I created a quick demo page to demonstrate how Paypresto can be used to not only create non-standard outputs, but also spend them... all from your favourite consumer wallet. In this demo you can create an R-Puzzle in one transaction, then spend it in a second. Read through the instructions, it all should be pretty clear.

I don't think the two opposing paradigms you describe necessarily matter that much. Apps succeed on solving a problem, and being simple and a delight to use. In that respect, I think an app that focuses on users and user experience will beat an app that focuses on the BGP and other nerdy bitcoin stuff.

I've released a new version of the paypresto.js client today. The main change is that the client now uses TxForge for building transaction instead of the bsv2 TxBuilder. This gives you more accurate fee estimation, plus the ability to use Casts as either inputs and outputs. See https://www.paypresto.co

Not quite. Tipping puts your txid on chain (which is a hash of your post). Post itself never goes on chain.

Noticed the powping tx don't use any Bitcom prefixes - just an app specific op return schema. I get you don't need to with the p2p approach... but not necessarily helpful for others who may want to scan the chain. Is Bitcom dead?
