haha
i would like to ask when ico™ (when polo™), but that would be retarded
any idea on how hard would be to add multisig to mimblewimble?
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
@lukap3rcic not hard at all as soon as we have Schnorr signatures, which we need anyway for a variety of reasons

@urza_cc_twitter
@niemerg_twitter @ignopeverell Some of the best projects humanity has done in last few decades are voluntary funded without some central authority or corporation behind them. Wikipedia, Linux, Bitcoin.... Internet even. I would suggest lets not try to "pay salaries for developers" like ZCash, Dash and other make-money coins. If you guys need some resources for the work you do, lets set up some donation system, perhaps something like Monero has funding forum https://forum.getmonero.org/8/funding-required ...I am ready to send something if you need and I sure wont be the only one. What you do now in the early stage will influence what will become of grin. In the spirit of how mimble wimble was delivered, I say lets stay in the category where Bitcoin, not ZCash is.
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
@urza_cc_twitter I agree
I'd just add that for all the projects you mentioned, some corporations stepped in and hired developers to work on these projects, which isn't a bad way to do it
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
as long as you have a rich enough ecosystem where multiple corporations do so, with still a mix of independents

@urza_cc_twitter
good point

@ignopeverell: As an aside, for multiplexing, would thetokio::RequestIdbe just a hash of a PeerInfo? Is siphash good enough?
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
that's probably not sufficient as it won't vary between requests
I believe the RequestId needs to uniquely identify the request
Jacob Payne
@Latrasis
Right, I guess that needs a combination of PeerInfo, the Type flag and timestamp.
Wait nvm, RequestId is just a simple counter. Okay that makes sense. False alarm
Sorry
Jacob Payne
@Latrasis
Tokio docs are a bit confusing...
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
indeed...
it's for it to correlate request and response, actually needs a little change in the protocol so if we go down that path, it's much better now
i don't know if the author contacted y'all, i spoke to him at consensus at NYC. please let me know if anything is too far out of whack

@merope07
hi igno, thank you for the thought about funding me. i'm sorry for my lack of progress. right now i need time :) i don't think that money would help unfortunately
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
@apoelstra wasn't expecting something as technical for an ibtimes article, but it's good!
@merope07 one thing money can't buy :-)
Andrew Poelstra
@apoelstra
heh, gmaxwell lent me a book "beggars in spain" about a girl who is genetically engineered to not need sleep, maybe one day money will be able to buy us that..
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
sleep feels pretty good tho :P
Andrew Poelstra
@apoelstra
btw i'm working on secp schnorr code right now, so there is progress on that front finally. a few hours i did a MW-related talk in paris (nothing new, i was just presenting to get a flight to europe :)) and i think i'll stop doing that for a few months so i can do some real work
heh, yeah, and i do enjoy sleep. if only there wasn't always so much cool cypherpunk stuff to build :)
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
I was going to ask, that's great to hear (regarding Schnorr)
Europe is nice but not super cypherpunk for the most part...
Andrew Poelstra
@apoelstra
very true, i don't know that i'd enjoy living here. visiting is nice, they don't look twice at my canadian passport and i've never been hassled for my politics (tho i am much more conscious about what i post on public wifi networks than i am in the US..)

hi folks :)

hey there, welcome! :)

just lurking here, will hopefully be able to step in and help at some point
my focus in crypto coding these days is user experience so i would love to help on block explorer / wallet stuff
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
feel free to chime in anytime
and yes, help there would be great, for the explorer we're getting pretty close from an API standpoint I think
for the wallet I have some janky command line for developers for now
on the wallet side, as wallets need to be connected somehow, I was thinking of having a docker container that people can run on a couple cheap hosting services
that would run a pruning node with a little web wallet
and would have some sort of AWS-style machine DNS
people could just exchange the DNS for their servers and the wallets can connect and transact
from there, we could layer fun social interactions, with communication from one wallet to another, given that they'd be always running server
from a UX standpoint, new user could go to some site, say "I want a new wallet", pay some nominal monthly amount to have it run
Ignotus Peverell
@ignopeverell
then they only need other people's wallet addresses to start exchanging transactions
the private key can be stored encrypted on their servers and backed-up encrypted someplace with strong encryption
thought that'd be a nice mix of easy UX, running your own node while still having a simple web wallet, and decent security

@lukap3rcic
@ignopeverell so mimblewimble is compatible with schnor sig?
