Hey guys, this is probably an idiotic question - just getting started with Web3JS and I'm a little unsure about the HttpProvider. I get how it works locally (not an issue) but how would it work in terms of a mobile app, would I just host the provider on a server of mine? Would that still be classed as 'client-side'?
Think I've found the answer, I assume I'd just connect to a public node such as: const web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider("https://ropsten.infura.io/TOKEN"));
@aggrogg this is the deaf helping the blind(Dutch expression), but I think that MetaMask is what will have your app connected to the Ethereum network. The user of your app can select whatever network he wants to connect to using MetaMask. https://github.com/MetaMask/faq/blob/master/DEVELOPERS.md
Status React look great, has anyone had any experience with it? Better than just using an API service?

Hi all. I would like to start playing with Ethereum for developing. What is the best tutorial guide? Thanks!
Hello all, I recently launched my first token (just to play with) and unusually I am unable to access the admin panel in Mist talked about in the tutorial. Any thoughts?
what is the best ethereum wallet out there?
I want to use tokens as points which can be shared as well. Does account users who has token requires actual ethers if they want to transfer their points (tokens) to another user ?
@padelagani Yes, they have to pay for gas.
Newbie question: i'm trying to run the Crowdsource dapp using the code on eth.org. The first step is to Deploy a coin (i've set Supply, Name, etc), but I cannot deploy. I'm in Testnet. However, I have zero ethereums. I don't see any error messages other than the fact I have zero ETHs. Is this the issue?
@robofredThat could be it, you need Ether to deploy, there are transaction costs involved when creating contracts.
@KenoLeon even if i'm just testing? In Testnet mode?
@robofred Yes, there are faucets for you to request and get test ether, I am on/recommend kovan.
@randomguy234 ~30Gb for the fast one, if you are not on SSD that might also penalize you, depending on your needs a light client/wallet might be better.
Coinbase always tells me to repeatedly enter multiple phone #s (it verifies the phone and then it literally un-verifies it and says 'wrong token' - and signs me out - and then it says the token isn't valid - if I try to put the same phone # in it says they already have that phone # TF How the __ do i contact these ppl
It just sent me a new code / token to my phone which I typed in and it said was wrong again 2x

Hi. When you deploy a private network and start mining to get ether, what are you really mining? What are those blocks?
I think the system is intelligently designed to perpetuate itself (not coinbase obv. but Blockchain) so the only way to mine is to record transactions / requests automatically and put them through a computing mechanism that generates a number that can't be faked, and has a very small likelihood (because the number must fit a certain algorithm or test - like it must have a certain number of zeros beore it) that you will make lots of money by getting a number that checks out.
Is there anyone who understands the system really well who can talk to me- I understand the overall economy quite well but I'm not a coder so I can't figure out the tech stuff quickly by myself (just someone who's used it who 'gets it' would be nice. We could chat here I guess it seems everyone has similar questions and nobody responds one billionth as fast as a google search (here) typically

@MonkeyPenny I am going to publish tomorrow morning an article explaining very detailed how mining works and what are the differences between private and public blockchains. I will send you the link. Regarding my doubt with the private network, what I can't understand is what are you mining if you are in a private network.
So far I have been coding in Hyperledger and now I'am beginning with Ethereum
Oh nice yeah I'd love to see that - I recently published an economic article and Ether seems more promising even than mimicking the Billionaire's stock moves- I'm not mining it yet, my account can receive Ether but not mine - it has only a couple hundred in it
Keiser and Ron Paul etc say the dollar is about to crash - and when that happens the banks will seize money (why my money is in credit union) but this seems an even safer method
Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad Poor Dad) and Tony Robbins (Money: Master the Game) -2 of the top business books - both say the dollar must crash and that's obvious
The banks can seize all money (too big to fail) kinda like the great depression which is a problem - which is why Ether and Bitcoin being decentralized is so important
@AllendeMarcos forgot to send the response specifically to you - u get it?
with my mac can i mine or i need server with specific other hardware to mine in entheriam?
Hello, what is the best methoud for accepting payments on webshop, generate a new wallet or use smart contracts?
ohoy! i take it metmask is fine for contributing?
hmmm...wrong chat i think....lol
How do I convert solidity constructor to abi souce code
I've created a token for testing and deployed on the block chain.. Now I am able to see the contract address, balance and able to send to other ETH addresses I used meta mask for this.. all went fine.. but I am unable to find out ho to set crowdsale.. I tried docs fro, ether wallet but it shows error,, how can I set crowdslae in wallet.ethereum.org for a token which was created in meta mask ?
Where do I download the Ethereum wallet app for me to create a token?
Marcos Allende López
Hello I cant varify and publish my contract i keep getting this Error! Invalid constructor arguments provided. Please verify that they are in ABI-encoded format
Yo - I need to create a decentralized exchange for my tokens
Hello - I'm having a problem getting pass the 6th line of code of create your own crypto. I continue to receive an error for "no visibility specified" I copy the exact code the instructions tell me.
hi i have a question : what is the minimum amount for creating a contract as a coin? how much ETH should i pay for my contract
After Successfully testing my Simple token on the ropsten testnet and code verify and publish successfully I did deploy to the main-net After transaction success token not found Balance returning 0.000000 Any Idea Why I use Remix solidity ^0.4.18;
how can i decide the price of new token?
Anyone that can advise on developing new coin?
Hi! I tested the code using on https://www.ethereum.org/token but for some reason when I try to deploy it on ethereum-wallet it says that something is wrong and will fail... Such behavior happened to someone else?
@basaa88 most code on the net are for testing not production code
