This is really cool, I was going to play with it but then realized that currently PowPing does not use IMB for any transaction that goes onto the blockchain. (Basically asking for $0 expenditure approval) Users need to explicitly swipe. Would it be difficult to add another method which uses regular moneybutton?

> 1. PWA support I will look into it. > 2. RelayX support Yes I had this in mind from the beginning and everything was designed with it in mind. Just need to flesh out some identity related architectural decisions first. > 3. Bitpic support Despite the fact that I'm the one who runs Bitpic, I have made the decision to not integrate Bitpic at the moment. This is a deliberate decision that's probably not obvious to most people since I haven't publicized what's really going on underneath yet, but it's important because I want to keep the underlying architecture as simple as possible. Bitpic may be integrated in the future when things become more fleshed out, but for the time being, I'm trying to keep the system as pure as possible (everything on the site follows the same protocol)

It was a deliberate decision not to support Bitpic, because PowPing is an entirely different way of doing things. For starters, all image uploads including the avatars are stored as uniform offchain transactions in their own ways using their own protocols (the protocol will be released in the future when ready). Of course, technically I can easily add it, but I want to avoid as much confusion as possible, and there are certain architectural decisions in the future which may make things complicated if I go the route of adding bitpic right now. I may add it in the future after I figure out certain things though. Bitpic is my own creation so it was not an easy decision to make, I've thought it over many times deeply. Hope you understand.

The moneybutton permissions asks you to allow "$0 permission" along with the signature method. The signature is the only feature we're using on PowPing, so it's actually off putting to display such a scary dialog. I've talked to the Moneybutton team and they are aware of this and said they will provide options to improve these messages so they display only the permissions the app needs. That said, now you can use both options, so if you don't like the instant posting you can switch to the "strict" mode https://powping.com/posts/deec023a96640a1c7922f2aa129732b6a020bc0183e2d51a4f73a575aa19b954

Thanks for the feedback. As for how I approach this problem, my approach is to worry about these problems when a celebrity type actually comes and starts posting on PowPing, because things like this is impossible to predict. The right way to build these features is to build them when people actually really need them so the rollout can be optimized for the actual real world usage, instead of based on ideology or hypotheses that will never be validated until that future event happens.

I appreciate everyone for all the feedback on this thread! They are valid points and the reason why implemented the explicit swipe in the first place. Now you have both options: Instant and Strict (original). https://powping.com/posts/deec023a96640a1c7922f2aa129732b6a020bc0183e2d51a4f73a575aa19b954

You can switch modes by clicking the "change" button at the top. Also, if you're having trouble posting in instant mode, try switching to strict mode and then back to instant mode, and retry. If that doesn't work, let me know. Or you can also keep using the strict mode. As mentioned, there is no absolutely superior method, there are tradeoffs.
unwriter
1 week ago
Now you can switch back and forth between "Instant" and "Strict" modes. There are pros and cons for each method. The "strict" mode is the original approach, where it lets you explicitly approve every action through a wallet popup, giving you control over signed data. This means you have to swipe for every post, and swipe twice for every time you tip someone. The "instant" mode lets you post instantly without this step, providing convenience. You can always switch back and forth easily. Try it at https://powping.com/settings

To clarify, it's not "Top" 200 active users, but "recently" active. It's not meant to be a ranking, but just a way to provide another way for people to meet one another. As for the actual algorithm, there's no super sophisticated logic in there, it's just using a combination of some internal parameters. Please don't take this section too seriously, it's just one way to highlight users who get interactions on the site. There will be better ways to help people meet in the future.

Still uses the Bitcoin-native stateless auth model (no OAuth or any tightly coupled architecture with Moneybutton). Also opens up opportunities for other integrations. But as I said, this is experimental and not final. You never learn unless you try stuff, and this is one way to "learn" what happens when we try something. I still believe the ideal solution is if wallet brands are exposed while providing a seamless UX, but that's not today, which is why we're experimenting. (Related thread: https://powping.com/posts/ec15c72274ba4c24e3e2778b268197da4b3c82510e4bda3a96640d312ae60ade)

[Experimental New Feature] Swipe-less instant posting. Found a way to do "invisible moneybutton" with minimum effort, so currently experimenting with it, can flip it on or off easily. Here's what this means: 1. You don't need to swipe every time to post. Simply clicking "post" will post, instantly. 2. You don't need to swipe twice for tipping, just need to swipe once. 3. The very first time when you try to post, it will ask you for your permission. The permission will say "allow the app to use $0". This is because the only time you'll spend money is through tipping, and the tipping will explicitly ask for your consent. Most importantly, it still has the SAME AUTH MODEL where every API request is uniquely signed with Paymail. Note that this is experimental, so I ask for your feedback. Let me know what you think.

I think the best way to get to success is to experiment as much as possible. Even if an idea sounds silly, people should just try building it just for the sake of it, and see where it goes. Because, even if it's some crazy idea which goes nowhere, other people might see it and get inspired to turn it into a viable model. And for this, I think really important to create an environment where experiments are encouraged instead of frowned upon. Whether it's only BSV that could do it or not, can only be found out by pushing the boundaries, in my opinion.

Now with the notifications update, we have switched the default feed sorting algorithm to "Sort by new post" (you can still view the "sort by comments" feed, it's just not the default feed anymore) Previously the default sort order was "sort by new comment", this is why posts with engagement kept getting bumped up to the top. This was cool but it also meant new posts tend to get buried and didn't get enough chance to be read. I think it's much cleaner to just sort by post creation time. If you want to keep track of active conversations, you can pay to do so. For example if you see someone ask an interesting question, you can either comment on it, or tip the poster, and you will get notified on followup conversations. You don't even have to be following the person, simply tipping the post will make sure to notify you on that conversation.
unwriter

In practical terms: If you are curious about further discussions, either comment on the thread yourself, or tip the poster. You will start getting notified whenever there are direct response to the post.
unwriter
2 weeks ago
Update: Notifications Just rolled out an update to the notification algorithm: Previously you only got notified when someone directly comments under your post or your comment thread. This meant you could be missing out on a lot of followup conversations. For example, if you comment on a post, and 10 other people come along and comment on the same post later (but not directly to you), this never triggered notifications and you had no way of knowing that there's a further conversation going on. Now, all participants of the top level comment thread (or those who tipped the post) get notified when another person makes a comment. From that point you can decide to join that "sub-chat" by replying to that thread, or just ignore. (See diagram) This is still experimental, and if this is too invasive we may tweak the algorithm. Appreciate feedback.

We are intentionally staying away from OAuth, we can do better with Bitcoin. As @aesesino points out, every transaction needs to be signed with Paymail. While this may come off as inefficient today, this is like taking one step back today to move ten steps forward tomorrow. It will become much more efficient and powerful exactly because we adopt this scheme. It's a completely different type of bitcoin overlay authentication/authorization system only possible with the current BSV infrastructure, which will make apps extremely portable, where applications revolve around users instead of users revolving around apps. This is not obvious at the moment but it will be, soon. That said, the onboarding problem is very real, and I know that all Bitcoin wallet companies are working hard to fix this in their own unique ways, and know for a fact that there are some great solutions to be shipped soon. So my point is, yes, the onboarding problem exists, but it's being actively worked on by all wallet companies and I believe that's the right way to fix this problem instead of introducing technical debt.
