Technical Discussion / Finally.. we have the gossip protocol
« Last post by Dirk Diggler on August 27, 2015, 11:38:43 PM »


Finally I got around to implementing a protocol I've had in mind for a long time.
The idea is extremely simple but at the same time extremely powerful.

With the gossip protocol everyone running a FIMK server can send a message to one or more of his connected peers and be pretty sure that same message is distributed as fast as possible among all other peers.

Nothing is stored however!
All that remains on any of the servers is the ID of the message. And only for a limited amount of time just to make sure we don't keep sending the same message around.

To actually do something with gossip messages the receiving party should be actively listening for them.

A party does not need to listen for all gossip messages!

What you do is create a special key which is built up from a sender, recipient and or topic (or any combination of that) and you'll subscribe to that key through two-way websocket client/server connections.

Now when anyone sends a gossip that matches that key, as soon as that message reaches the (p2p) server your client is connected to you will be notified.

Having a free distributed messaging protocol could potentially come at a cost.
That's why all transactions and blocks on the network always go first.

It is a very early stage and these extra measures have not been enabled yet but this protocol comes with excellent spam prevention methods.
Since every gossip message has a sender and every peer in the network has knowledge of that sender's balance we could easily require a sender to have a minimum balance, we could also limit the number of messages per minute/hour/day etc per account ..

Every gossip message is signed with a secret phrase which proves who send the message (same mechanism as signing blocks).
Every gossip message is timestamped and the timestamp is included in the signature, messages older than - or from more than 15 seconds in the future are discarded.

The live chat feature is just one of it's uses and is what is available in lompsa (used to be mofowallet) 0.4.7 now.

Lompsa 0.4.7 shows how with this relatively simple protocol we can create a sophisticated client side (javascript) distributed real-time communications platform.

# client side protocol implementation

# messages are stored and served from indexeddb

Lots of other uses exist. Free fast real-time communications between FIMK users is just one of them.
Eventually the protocol could be used for anything.. communications, games, live multi-sig, live trading etc..

Kiva uutinen!

En ole koskaan täysin ymmärtänyt miksi kauppojen aukioloa säädellään. En myöskään ole nähnyt tarvetta pitää yllä mitään tiettyä unirytmiä silloin kuin ei ole ollut koulua tai töitä. Tänään heräisin viideltä päivällä. Näin auringonnousun.
General FIMK Discussion / Lompsa Explorer - Forgers
« Last post by warmach on August 25, 2015, 05:09:11 PM »
I don't understand the Forgers page in Lompsa.  I would expect that the list would be the count of the most recent 1440 forgers.  Adding up the numbers comes to 1594.  What exactly does this page supposed to display?  Why was 1594 chosen?  I am trying to verify my pool's numbers are accurate and it would be more helpful to compare apples to apples.

General FIMK Discussion / Auto Lease Renewal
« Last post by warmach on August 24, 2015, 05:01:38 PM »
There have been plenty of times that I would lease my account and then forget about it.  Later I find my lease expired and my forging power had been sitting idle for a week or so. 

To fix this, I wrote a perl script that will renew my lease for me.  The script is attached to this post.  I have only tested the script on Linux and can not confirm it works on a Windows Perl install. 

How to Use It

1.  Setup private node and enable API access. 
2.  Use a text editor to open the script file and edit all the configuration options.
3.  Run the script on a trusted server (as your passphrase is now in the script file), preferably the machine with the private node
4.  Enable script to run on a regular basis.

I have my node and script running on a Raspberry Pi and it works great.

If you are looking for a pool, check mine out in the forums or at

Developer donations greatly appreciated.

P.S.  It is a good practice to look through any downloaded scripts to make sure nothing shady is included in there.

"Flying bags of weed to eager consumers is pretty cool, but that's not actually what Trees is all about. In an interview with Gizmodo at the drone drop site, company CEO Marshall Hayner made clear that Trees isn't really about drones or marijuana deliveries; it's about Bitcoin, the virtual currency."

English News / BitTeaser: Is MIT Even More Progressive than Ever?
« Last post by CCEDKmedia on August 18, 2015, 04:32:09 AM »

The world known Technological University – MIT showed the world their interest and desire to research digital currency by establishing student Bitcoin Club, whose goal is to create projects, programs and different events to learn and research bitcoin.  MIT is extremely famous because of constant innovative developments in robotics and artificial intelligence. Every year there are      28 000 applications on 1800 available places, aside from pretty expensive tuition.
If MIT decided to try to operate with Bitcoin, we definitely can wait for something grand. Two university students, Jeremy Rubin and Dan Elitzer, proposed very unique project for the university. The core idea of the project, to delegate some amount of Bitcoins to each undergraduate participant in MIT (e.g. current moment it is 4528 students) To be specific, with investors support, they collected funds in the amount of 500 000 USD, with true believe that this project will promote and make digital crypto currency one of the most popular currency among students. Basically, this autumn students will get bitcoins in the equivalent of 100 USD, and they are free to spend it the way they prefer. That will be an index for a Bitcoin Club, that will show how students are spending digital currency, how the manage it. This is why and how the fund raised money will be spent, and cause a lot of curiosity, because nobody has an idea how participants will operate with bitcoins. Also, Bitcoin Club will educate and provide information regardless Bitcoin to every person, to get them used and understand the work principal of Bitcoin and its benefits.
According to official statement, the goal is to create an independent ecosystem for digital currencies, inside and under the management of MIT. Apart from access to significant internal resources of MIT, a new position within the university will give them an opportunity to significantly increase the volume of bitcoin development by involving new students helping with research projects and other assignments. There are already some businesses that accept Bitcoin as a payment type on the university territory, but according to organizers’ plan, local Bitcoin ecosystem should root the position much stronger and stable.
As was mentioned above, and according to survey, MIT is the perfect choice for Bitcoin experiment, because of the environment - young, smart and financially stable students are the perfect candidates as bitcoin followers.

General FIMK Discussion / Sports betting with FIMK.

* betsize per betting wallet (that is you) is from 10 -10000 FIMK
* winning bets will be paid as soon as possible (max 24h), probably within minutes after end of the event
* bets must be placed before start of the event
* every bet that is not following the rules is considered as a donation
* every winning bet will be paid into the wallet the bet was made of so use private wallets to ensure you get your winnings

So let's try to spice things up.

Todays event:

Rennes - Montpellier begins at 18:00 UTC, odds as follows:

Rennes victory - 2.30, wallet FIM-TKL2-AVAN-VFSL-4G4WA
Draw - 3.20, wallet FIM-PQMJ-RHCP-6Z8X-D7Z4T

So, if you think Rennes will beat the c*** out of Montpellier make the bet to wallet FIM-TKL2-AVAN-VFSL-4G4WA and enjoy the outcome.

Happy betting, hopefully you like the idea and enjoy the fun.
FIMK Markets and trading / A bit of a tease: crypto service takes on AdSense
« Last post by CCEDKmedia on August 13, 2015, 11:17:59 PM », a new advertising service, brings together advertisers and publishers – with all the benefits of cryptocurrency built in.

Google is the undisputed king of the web, and when it comes to paid advertising they’re the go-to guys. They make it fast, simple and – if you’ve got a site with good traffic – lucrative to host ads.

But they’re still Google and they’re still working with fiat, which means there are inevitable disadvantages. Stuff like minimum payouts, issues with registering bank accounts (if you have a bank account – and a surprising number of people don’t), and the cookie-cutter nature of the service.

But what if you could do the same thing with crypto? The service would be similar – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, after all – but optimised because crypto brings unique flexibility to the model. BitTeaser is doing just that. Like AdSense, BitTeaser acts as bridge that connects advertisers to web sites who will host their adverts. Although it leverages cryptocurrency technology and is focused on crypto businesses and projects, it’s designed to appeal to a wide range of sectors, including Technology, Investing, Finance, Business News, Entertainment, and Gambling.

Advertising, crypto style

BitTeaser offers some impressive advantages over their monolithic competitors’ services, thanks in part to the efficiencies brought to the table by crypto:

- Highest percentage of revenues per click
- Banners are fully customisable
- Ultra-fast registration and deposit – get started almost instantly
- No bank account required
- The fully international service enables publishers who would not otherwise have easy access to bitcoin to earn cryptocurrency revenues
- Efficiency of cryptocurrency means minimum withdrawal is just 0.1 BTC (around $25)
- Anonymous and irreversible payments
- Any crypto can be used through a partnership with Danish exchange CCEDK and instant exchange service CCPAYT.

CCEDK’s instant order option ( allows you to exchange bitcoins or BitShares to USD or EUR. These can also be spent using the nanocard, a debit card that converts crypto balances to fiat from an exchange account in real time, as featured on Forbes – meaning there’s every reason to stay with BitTeaser for the long term.

Getting going

BitTeaser is very straightforward to get started with. You’ll need to sign up, though that’s no big deal, and because you’re not dealing with bank accounts and verification, there are no major delays. In fact, getting set up takes just minutes.

Like AdSense, the webmaster/publisher reserves space on their website and uses a chunk of code provided by the service, that will display and rotate adverts automatically. Publishers can’t choose to display specific ads, or set their own rates of pay, but they can choose the overall topic and type of block or banner displayed. And, unlike AdSense, this bit is infinitely flexible – advertisers can create ads of any size and shape, customizing them however they see fit.

It’s just as easy for the advertiser. They sign up (if you’re also a publisher, you can even use the same account) and deposits bitcoin to their account. You can create your own ads or get BitTeaser to provide them for you. Once the campaign has been approved by an administrator, adverts are automatically displayed on the publisher’s site and the publisher is paid per click. There it is: BAM! You’re earning crypto while you sleep.

Keeping out the riff-raff

Anyone familiar with the early days of paid advertising knows that if you can game the system, someone will. For advertisers, that means lost revenues (and because it’s crypto, if they’re gone they’re really gone). BitTeaser uses a series of manual and automatic procedures to ensure only high-quality sites are employed for advertising, and that fake clicks are disallowed. IP address and other checks are carried out, and advertisers can always opt to block undesirable sites from hosting their ads, if they want. Any concerns and questions are dealt with quickly and personally.

Websites are also evaluated on several criteria to ensure they are suitable and offer high-quality traffic. Registration date and traffic volumes are checked (so if the site’s a week old but gets 100,000 hits, someone will be raising an eyebrow), the standard of content is evaluated, search engine rankings researched and regular tests for hidden links conducted – meaning that any visitors to the site are likely to be genuine or will get booted out in short order. BitTeaser payouts vary but are are higher for better sites, judged by quality of website, traffic volumes, cost-per-click and number of unique users – plus the efficiencies of crypto means they’re proportionately higher than in the fiat world.

Writers partnerships

A new service to be launched in the coming weeks enables writers to submit articles for advertisers to display, thereby using unique content to drive traffic to the site – and pay writers in cryptocurrency for their work. An affiliate scheme is also offered for those who like to get paid for doing nothing.

Still here? What are you waiting for? To register with BitTeaser, visit
