Byteball Rebrand — The next step to real-world adoption As most of you probably know I started working for Byteball officially on June 1st last year but I have been part of the community for almost 2 years now. I have experienced first hand that a recurring theme has been the discussion about the Byteball name and brand. Being responsible for strategy there’s one thing I’m absolutely sure of: with the current name we’re never going to achieve worldwide adoption. While the name may sound fine to non-native English speakers, it certainly does n

Distribution Methods Revisited — Have Your Say! I know you are all waiting for news about the renaming/rebranding but that requires a little more patience from you. Today I want to talk about the current distribution methods and how we can fine-tune, adjust or replace them with better ones. What we have learned from The Byteball Draw so far is that it’s hard to keep people at both ends of the spectrum happy. Whales want more points for the balances they have, and small holders feel their chances of winning are too small.

For our latest distribution, Byte holders can receive rewards just for holding Bytes. Distributing funds again to existing Byte holders has been a popular request in the community for a while, and we are pleased to bring it back. This time with an improved format! How the weekly airdrop draw works Every week, we will airdrop a prize of 200 Gigabytes (GB) and 422.22 Gigablackbytes (GBB — the private currency) to a single winner. It is like a lottery, but you don’t need to buy a ticket, just prove your existing balance.

ByteBall at the Support – Uptrend Might Continue
At the end of June Byteball has tested the low at $100, which is a strong psychological support. After bounce, price went up and broke above the downtrend trendline, corrected down, and went up again, this time breaking above the 200 Moving Average. GBYTE/USD then bounced off strong resistance area at $150 and went down sharply. Currently it is trading at the $125 support, which could be the starting point for the uptrend continuation. It is worth mentioning that the 200 Moving Average is also acting as the support, as price still failed to b

Byteball Steem Attestations — Now Referral By Link Only
There has been a lot of speculation about whether Byteball had thought everything through when launching the Steem attestation campaign. Please rest assured, we were very aware of the different types of abusive behavior we would potentially come across. However, we also wanted the opportunity to be as easy and inclusive as possible. Restricting to only high reputation levels would have prevented a lot of users from participating, so we instead decided to start out as wide as possible and monitored the situation closely.

The bridge between Byteball and Steem is showing great results, more than 25,000 Steemians have attested their username so far and it’s not showing signs of slowing down anytime soon. However, “free money” always attracts people who try to game the system. No surprise there. We do want to keep the rewards system in place and support it as long as we can but we can not tolerate reward and referral farming through automation. For example; some people are actively gaming the system by upvoting new accounts to a reputation of 40 and claiming the

The Future of Byteball — The Byteball Foundation
Byteball was launched with the intention to distribute 99% of the supply of its native currency Bytes for free to the widest possible audience. Initially through airdrops to Bitcoin holders. At the time this seemed like a wonderful idea, Bitcoin had the biggest community by far and a lot of early Bitcoin holders deeply care about the philosophy behind it. The idea was to kind of jumpstart the community around Byteball and give everyone the opportunity to get a certain % of Bytes for free. The concept behind it being Metcalfe’s Law of course.

After reaching the recent high at $1188 price declined back to the 8/1 Gann Fan trendline, which was successfully rejected. At this point, the uptrend is likely to continue and GBYTE/USD could test $1500-1600 area, where are two Fibonacci retracement levels applied to the last two corrective waves down. It should be kept in mind that the key support remains at $355 and only break and close above it could invalidate bullish outlook. At the same time, break above

In December, we launched textcoins, which allowed to send Bytes to anyone with an email address, even if the recipient is not in Byteball yet. It was inspired by PayPal, which did the same to encourage growth in its early days. There are two more lessons to learn from PayPal: they gave a $10 signup bonus to every new user; they paid $10 for every referral. It is hard to apply these tactics in crypto because the environment is anonymous and open to abuse. But now we have identity.

The RSI indicator formed a bullish divergence and from BTC 0.012 support GBYTE/BTC started to rise and broke an extremely strong resistance at BTC 0.04. The corrective wave followed and the previous resistance at 0.04 has been acting as a support, the price simply failed to go lower.

Digital currencies were invented to make the world better, but so far they have very little use in the real world. With prediction markets introduced in Episode III this is going to change. There is one real-world need that applies to almost everyone and is closely related to prediction markets — insurance. Prediction markets are about getting paid in case one of the two possible outcomes becomes real, the outcomes being uncertain at the time the prediction was made. Insurance is essentially the same, with the added perception of the outcome

Today we are introducing P2P prediction markets. They are powered by simple smart contracts that any regular user can understand and create, similar to smart contracts behind bound payments that we launched in Episode I and Episode II. Take this example. You want to be paid if the price of Bitcoin exceeds 1200 USD within the next 7 days. You may want this either because you bet on this event, or you want to hedge against the risk that the price goes that high.

In Episode I, we introduced bound payments and their first application: P2P exchange of one Byteball currency for another Byteball currency. Now we extend their power by allowing to bind a payment to an event that happens outside the Byteball platform. The external events are brought into Byteball by trusted third parties — oracles — who monitor specific events and import them into Byteball database as a data feed. Once the events are there, you can set the terms of the contract and bind your payment to the other party’s performance: Binding

This is how it all began: Bitcoin whitepaper described a peer-to-peer currencyHowever, all cryptocurrencies so far, Bitcoin included, failed to win a significant share of everyday payments. We need to fix this and make P2P great again. Every cryptocurrency has irreversible payments built-in. But that is not enough for making safe P2P deals with untrusted counterparties. Without any guarantees that the other party keeps one’s part of the bargain, such payment is just an irreversible donation in exchange for soft promises.
