Does anyone have a roundup of cloud wallet features? I'm thinking things like using the wallet to login, customising the button, native support. Also interested in features that might not be available yet but are in closed beta.

What do you guys think about this article? I personally found it very spot on vis-a-vie my own personal experience. We're under very unique and strange incentives at the moment. What do you think the implications for the development of the ecosystem will be? There is definitely less development 'energy' and people can feel it. My worry is that as companies and individuals work (in secret) on real-world solutions, we lose out on some of the rapid experimentation that needs to happen to work thr

What tools do you guys think we need to jump start development of the Metanet? We have a few projects like MetaId and DNS but things are quite slow. A big hurdle is not being able to use Moneybutton to create metanet nodes. Are there other things we could build to make developers experience better?

What conventions do you follow for encoding pubKey and parentTxids in metanet nodes? eg, should the pubKey be a 33 byte public key, a 20 byte pubKeyHash, or as I see most people doing, a 25-34 byte base58 encoded bitcoin address? Similarly should the parentTxid be 32 byte txid, or a 64 byte hex-encoded txid? My instinct is to use the smallest possible payload, but just wondering what conventions others are following and what APIs like metaTXT etc use?

Follow the news: Every story should have an ending. Too many articles or stories that are produced get lost in the clutter or are never finished. I would like to be able to fund the continued investigation of any story or research to see it through to its end.

Anyone know the time frame for fully removing chained transaction limits from BSV node software? https://blog.moneybutton.com/2019/02/11/raising-the-speed-limit-of-unconfirmed-transactions/#:~:text=This%20%E2%80%9Cspeed%20limit%E2%80%9D%20error%20is,the%20Bitcoin%20SV%20node%20software.

How should a Bitcoin app authenticate its users? @joshua has recently been advocating Bitcoin-native user authentication - essentially some kind of challenge/response mechanism where a user signs the response with their wallet. Powping itself I think uses this kind of model. https://coingeek.com/logging-in-with-bitcoin/ I like this idea, but truth is there is nothing like a standard for this, so apps implementing this approach need to do it wallet by wallet - effectively creating a hard depend

Renamed the channel to simply "Build on Bitcoin". Krafty Bits is a cool name but I'll save that for something else. Want to make it clear this is where the builders on bitcoin lounge about.

Hey guys First of all, I cant code to save my life 😅 BSV doesn't have a service like Medium. Bcash's Read.cash is pretty nice. Not amazing layout. Would be a good service to copy to BSV obviously with integrated Relayx/MB/etc

Does a Bitcoin app need to use the blockchain? I’ve been *very* impressed with Powping. Paradoxically though, it’s probably true that its main innovation is that it doesn’t use the blockchain. I’m curious whether you feel this is a needed rethink of what a Bitcoin app looks like, or does it stretch the limits of what we can truly call a Bitcoin app? Has the Powping model caused you to rethink the apps you’re working on or inspired you to try different experiments in terms of what does and doe

I published a new Elixir package today to help with the simple task of converting Bitcoin transactions to and from various common formats. Released today: Shapeshifter https://github.com/libitx/shapeshifter Shapeshifter allows you to: - Convert TXO and BOB formatted transactions back to structured Bitcoin transactions. - Convert a Bitcoin transaction straight to TXO or BOB without having to go on-chain and through Bitbus. - Flip between TXO and BOB and back - Convert to and from raw binary tx

Last week @joshua published a great tutorial on how to use www.paypresto.co. Josh demonstrated how to both create AND spend an rpuzzle using Paypresto, all initiated from a consumer wallet. I think Josh explains the essence of Paypresto well - it's well worth a watch if you're curious about ways it can help in your BSV app or project. https://streamanity.com/video/bdT7UDIOfWCO?ref=5da043d3-1724-474b-b910-4d5174c0a190
