Why AMP is a threat to the Open Web

What is AMP?
AMP is an open-source web component framework developed by the AMP Open Source Project, first announced by Google in 2015 as a reaction to Facebook’s Instant Articles and Apple News. While it was originally aimed at accelerating mobile pages (hence AMP), it’s now a much broader project aimed at improving the UX of websites, stories, ads and mail. The AMP framework consists of three components: AMP HTML, which is standard HTML markup with web components; AMP JavaScript, which manages resource loading; and AMP caches, which serves and validates AMP pages.
In plain English: AMP is Google’s attempt at making pages (and more) faster. They did a good job, pages built with the AMP framework will normally load faster. However, as this article explains, you won’t notice much of a difference unless the AMP library is served using the AMP cache, but more on that later.
The controversies with cached AMP pages
The AMP format is itself not much of a problem. In fact, we should applaud search engines that give ranking preference to fast-loading pages like AMP, but four aspects of its implementation are flawed:
  1. Google mobile Search’s Top Stories carousel has a premium position above of all other results, which is only accessible for AMP pages. These pages have to use a technology that was build and maintained mostly by Google (of the top 10 contributors to the AMP project on GitHub, 9 are Google employees), are then served by Google from their infrastructure and placed within a Google controlled user experience. And since this carousel generates a lot of clicks and revenue, publishers are left no choice but to embrace AMP. This has the effect of further reinforcing Google’s dominance of the Web. Fortunately, Google has announced that it's working on opening up the Top Stories carousel to non-AMP pages in 2021.
  2. The biggest performance boost doesn’t come from the AMP framework, but from preloading the page. It begs the question: Should preloading really be exclusive to AMP? They could introduce a way for publishers to allow or disallow preloading and if Google sees fit, they could preload those pages too, alongside AMP.
  3. When a user navigates from Google to a piece of content Google has recommended (or when a user clicks on a shared cached AMP link), they are, unwittingly, remaining within Google’s ecosystem and the publisher’s domain is obscured by the google.com/amp prefix. To work around this Google introduced Signed HTTP Exchanges ([Draft], [1], [2]), a web-standard that allows the browser to display the original site's URL, instead of the actual one (the one with the google.com/prefix). This would solve the original issue, but while doing so it introduced new ones (e.g. it obfuscates the fact that they're delivering the AMP page you're visiting). Interestingly enough, Google's Chrome already has support for this technology, but parties not involved with AMP are not so enthusiastic: Mozilla has deemed it a harmful web standard [2], and Apple has taken a similar stance.
  4. Google’s entire business model is about collecting as much personal data as possible, AMP is just another tool to do so. As described in Google’s Support article:
“When you use the Google AMP Viewer, Google and the publisher that made the AMP page may each collect data about you.”
The controversies with non-cached AMP pages
To be clear, the above flaws are only with AMP pages cached by Google (or another party like Bing or Cloudflare) but there are also plenty of pages simply utilizing the AMP framework, recognized by URLs such as bbc.com/news/amp/. However, these are also problematic, mainly because there's only a small performance improvement when AMP pages aren't cached and AMP pages tend to be less feature-rich and less diverse than their originals. And in some edge cases, it breaks stuff.
One could argue that the more popular the AMP framework becomes, the more AMP threatens the open web. That said, it should be clear that the biggest problem lies with the cached AMP pages.
AMP is open source, but that doesn't make it holy. Or as Ferdy Christant puts it quite nicely in his blog:
Google’s main defense is that AMP is open source. Which isn’t just a weak defense, it’s no defense at all. I can open source a plan for genocide. The term “open source” is meaningless if the thing that is open source is harmful.
Just so we’re clear, I’m not claiming Google or the AMP project is evil (hell, they might even have good intentions!), but the fact is that AMP and it's implementation have some major flaws that threaten the Open Web. And as long as that's the case, AmputatorBot will be there to remove AMP from your URLs.

Online gambling legislation and regulation. Starting your own gambling product.

Online gambling legislation and regulation. Starting your own gambling product.

Mobile gambling
If you plan to develop an app with the ability to deposit and withdraw real money, then such a product automatically falls into the category of gambling and you will need to license your business for successful operation.
Mobile and Web Based Apps
So let’s talk about the different kinds of online gambling apps available on web and mobile. We’ll be covering both free-play gaming apps and real money casino app games you can find for iOS, Android devices and web browsers.
Mobile gambling is more common for poker, casino, bingo, and skill games. They have advantages in terms of a low barrier to enter the market, instant liquidity, product knowledge, and marketing expertise, minimal infrastructure costs, and the ability to bring a brand to the market quickly. Consequently, this form of gambling does not sit neatly with jurisdictional boundaries. Multiple gambling opportunities are available, including betting on various events and markets, in a relatively simple format. Gambling products can also be integrated into betting on television shows or virtual racing and sports games as well as offering lotteries, bingo, poker and casino games.
Most Popular Gambling Apps
Sports betting, casino, poker and lotteries are the most popular forms of online gambling. However, other forms are available too. These include the following: Bingo, slot machines, different card games, roulette and other game of chance. One of the best things about online gambling and betting apps is the number of choices you have.

Sports Betting

Betting means making or accepting a bet on the outcome of a race, competition, or other event or process, the likelihood of anything occurring or not occurring, or whether anything is or is not true. Today most sports betting is done via mobile-friendly sites and apps.
Today most sports betting is done via mobile-friendly sites and apps.
The introduction of live betting for sports like soccer and tennis means that bettors who are sitting inside stadiums watching games can now pick up their mobile devices and find real-time betting value with the best sports gambling apps. This has really unlocked a door to the future of sports gambling and the popularity of online gambling apps.

Poker

Many sites offer free poker, where no real money is wagered, although in some cases players can accumulate credits that can be exchanged for prizes. This is the case why people are going to play for real money. There is an ongoing debate over whether poker should be classified as a game of chance or skill. The parameters of legal poker playing are still unclear and differ between jurisdictions. Since you are not gambling with money, I’m pretty sure under the law it’s just a video game for now.

Blackjack

Blackjack is the game of choice to many high-rollers and do you know why? Because blackjack is a challenging, logic and skill-based game where your thinking, strategy, and calculations determine the outcome of the game.

Bingo

Bingo is one of the most popular and socially accepted games in the world. Bingo is a traditional form of gambling that has seen considerable innovation in recent years. It is also the only form of gambling recognized in the Gambling Act that does not have a specific statutory definition, the Act providing simply that “bingo” means “any version of that game, irrespective of by what name it is described”. Bingo must be played as an equal chance game. For game to be classed as “bingo” it must meet the Act’s definition of “equal chance gaming” (as opposed to casino gaming). Thus, it: must not involve playing or staking against a bank, and must be a game in which the chances are equally favorable to all participants in the sense that each ticket or chance has the same probability of success as any other.
Licensed bingo is a well-regulated and socially responsible form of gambling that takes place in a safe environment. Many sites offer multiple forms of bingo with different features, types of games, and costs of play. These sites often cater specifically for women and some research suggests that they may appeal to markets who would not typically engage in traditional forms of gambling.

Slots

Slot machine is one of the most beloved game among the gambling community and it has been a part of the industry for a long time. They provide fun and entertainment and their simplicity allows gamers to start playing at once. This can play out in different ways depending on the machine you’re playing. For instance, there’s Pick a Fortune, a five-reel, 20 line game that puts players right in the studio of a television game show, including the potential to play a Deal or No Deal-style bonus round. A super trend over the past few years is mobile-friendly slot games. These apps and websites were developed to enable players to enjoy their favorite games on their smartphones at any time. Another dominant slot trend is licensed branded slots that are based on popular movies, television, and musicians.
Virtual Money vs Real Money
Let’s find out the difference between social gambling and real money gambling, as well as the differences between gambling through apps and gambling through a web browser. It can be quite confusing trawling through all the casinos, slots, and lotteries available, both through your mobile web browser as well as through mobile app stores, in the form of downloadable apps.

Virtual money

The main difference between virtual money and real money gambling is that the in-game virtual currency in social games and gambling-type games is used only like credits that are not paid out as winnings or anything given to player in cash, making these games exempt from gambling regulations.
Virtual money is loaded on user game accounts via in-app purchases in mobile applications or the game balance funding from a card via web based applications.

Real money gambling

Real money gambling via your mobile device is only allowed in countries where laws have been passed that allow for this type of gambling online, or there are no laws in place that prevent it. The payment systems are the legal way of services payment in the gambling app, performing as the intermediary between the gambling facility and the client. With their help, users replenish deposits and withdraw funds to personal accounts in financial institutions. If the application uses the payment system of a well-known brand, that gives players additional confidence in the resource. Nowadays, there is a wide range of payment systems, some of which operate all over the world, other systems are oriented towards the citizens of one or several countries. A number of services accept money of different world currencies, while others allow currency transactions of one state only.
What is an Online Gambling Licensing
The internet has a global audience, there’s no single piece of legislation that covers the legality of online gambling for the entire world. Mobile gambling doesn’t typically accept customers from every single country in the world. It often focuses on certain specific regions.
Instead, most countries have their own local laws that deal with the relevant legal and regulatory issues.
Ultimately, questions of legality all go back to the location of the casino or where the website operates out of. In closed regulatory systems, such as Italy, France, and the Netherlands, licenses, and advertising rights are limited to domestic providers, which must be located within their country’s geographical boundaries and these are only permitted to offer some types of products. Some jurisdictions, for example, Norway, Sweden, and Canada legalize and regulate online gambling, but this is limited to a single site that is owned by the government. Under such an approach, the government becomes the operator and regulator and all revenues are returned to the government.
Remote gambling is generally permitted. That means that an operator that is licensed may provide gambling services to citizens in the country via all forms of remote communication (and using equipment that may be located in the country or abroad). Equally, a remote operator may be licensed to offer gambling services to citizens in any jurisdiction in the world using equipment located in the country. The law provides that, for each type of gambling (betting, gaming, and participating in a lottery), there will be two forms of license available: remote and non-remote forms (land-based). If you provide facilities for remote gambling, online or through other means, and advertise to consumers you will need a license from the licensing jurisdictions or local licensing authorities. Before an online gambling site signs up its first customer, before it accepts its first bet before the first card is dealt, it must be licensed by a recognized governmental entity.
Certain regions in the world have specific legislation in place that allows them to license and regulate companies that operate online gambling sites or provide industry services (such as the supply of gaming software). These regions are referred to as online gambling jurisdictions or licensing jurisdictions.
Depending on what type of entertainment you are going to implement in your internet establishment, you will have to apply for the corresponding permissions. Online gambling laws in Europe vary from one country to the next. The industry is well regulated in some countries and less so in others. There are several online gambling jurisdictions located in Europe. Some of these are members of the European Union (EU), and thus subject to the various rules and regulations of that body, while others are independent. Each of these jurisdictions has an authority that’s responsible for approving gambling sites for licenses that enable them to offer their services legally. They also regulate their licensees.
Countries that Provide Gambling Licensing
Today there are lots of licensing jurisdictions located all over the world and offering different terms for their customers. Depending on the country, licenses can be local, international (distributed in several countries), have a different set of documents for registration, costs of registration and further support, various operating conditions and other special details.

Which gambling license is both internationally recognized?

The government of Ireland offers casino operators, software, and service providers in the gambling industry, with a gambling license that allows gambling operators to conduct business related to casino, lotto, and other gaming-related activities. Ireland Gambling License is one of the most popular license for online casinos worldwide. Ireland has long been recognized as one of the preferred locations for Online Gambling operators to base their operations. This success has been due to a combination of factors, such as a progressive legislative system, political stability, first-rate telecommunications facilities, and a well established financial services industry. A wide range of gambling sites operates out of Ireland including sports betting, casino sites, poker, bingo, and more.
In stark contrast, the UK is the largest regulated market for online gambling in the world, and corporations are already comfortable exploiting the intersections of gambling and gaming, betting in-play, social gaming, Bitcoin, financial trading and spread betting, betting exchanges, e-sports and, most profitably, mobile gambling. 40% and 60% of online gambling in the UK took place in Gibraltar.

International licensing

Europe is home to the following online gambling jurisdictions: Alderney, Gibraltar, Isle of Man, Malta. Malta is currently the country that is most accommodating to gambling companies, and the license offers whitelisted online gambling in sports and casino games in many European territories. But takes an extreme amount of time in paperwork and background checks. Also, you pay 5% of all your gross profit to the EU.
Among countries offering gambling licensing services, the attention should be paid to Curaçao jurisdiction, which is considered to be one of the most promising for the online gaming business.
Curaçao Internet Gaming Association (also known as Curaçao eGaming) is both a regulator and a licensor, and its licensing works worldwide except Curaçao itself, USA, France and Netherlands. Using Curacao as an example, let us examine in detail the process of obtaining a license, the necessary documents and expenses.
How to get a License on Curaçao
  • Documents necessary for company registration:
  • criminal record;
  • passport scans;
  • bank account confirmation;
  • documents proving payments for utility services.
After the company is registered, an operator can apply for the license providing the following documents:
  • a document certifying the right of domain possession;
  • description of games planned to be used in the project;
  • a list indicating countries of potential operation;
  • illustration of server locations to be used in the project;
  • a copy of the agreement with a software provider.
Gambling license cost:
  • Bank account opening $1000
  • Company registration $3600
  • Company management per year $3600
  • Application processing fee $1000
  • License fee per year $4800
  • Equipment/software fee starting from $1500
  • Server maintenance per year $6000
Apart from that pay for technical support and maintenance every year. The entire license issuing process takes between 2-4 weeks. Curacao Internet Gaming Association (CIGA) also has the power to review a license and, if it finds that an operator has breached a license condition, has the power to impose a range of sanctions including revocation of the license.
Apple and Google Gambling Rules
You’ll be surprised at the limited number of real money gambling app options available on the AppStore and Google Play Store. Most real money casino gaming is done through gambler’s mobile web browsers and not through mobile gambling apps that you’ll find for iPhone and Android phones. Apple allows online gambling applications in a few forms, and not just in places where it is explicitly permitted. They do not allow any payments through the applications – those have to be done on the websites. Apple has far stricter developer guidelines for iOS apps than Google does for Android apps, so it’s fine to assume that whatever you choose to download from iTunes is usually safe, secure, and meets a certain standard.
Any real money casino in the iTunes app is required to have proper licensing and permissions before Apple will approve the app for use or downloads. While Google Play is technically regulated, it is much more loose in what can be hosted.

Apple Store

Gambling, gaming, and lotteries can be tricky to manage and tend to be one of the most-regulated offerings on the App Store. Apple has rules for apps that support real money wagering, including sports betting and poker. Those apps and lotteries must have necessary licensing and permissions in the locations where the App is used, must be geo-restricted to those locations, and must be free on the App Store, and Apple rate even simulated gambling apps as appropriate only for users 17-years-old and up.

Play Store

Google keeps the reigns tight. To be able to successfully upload apps to the Google Play store, developers need to have a valid license for the specific countries they are targeting and comply with their regulations. The app must be free to download and must prevent under-age users from gambling in the app. As a final precaution, all gambling apps are required to display prominent information regarding responsible gambling practices. This brings its policy in line with the Apple App Store.
Countries where gambling is illegal
It is also important to remember that while gambling is growing rapidly in many places, in others it is totally or partially prohibited. As well as in the majority of the US, sports betting is illegal in India, Pakistan, and China, three of the largest gambling markets in the world. Most countries have rules against gambling. Almost all Islamic countries prohibit gambling of every kind, but many turn a blind eye to online gambling or simply do not have regulations in place for this grey area.
In the United Arab Emirates, however, any kind of gambling is prosecuted. National lotteries are the only legal forms of wagering on the Asian country’s mainland. Cambodia, North Korea strictly forbids online and offline gambling amongst its own citizens but allows tourists to participate in these activities.
Qatar is the strictest country of all when it comes to gambling laws. All forms of gambling activities are considered illegal, and even sports betting is not permissible.
Starting your own gambling product
Numerous online casino platforms in the market offer fantastic casino games like bingo, poker, roulette, and many more.
If you have an idea, but don’t know where to start, we advise you begin with a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) to pilot your proof of concept for investors. MVP spotlights your core features and lets your investors know there are bigger and better things to come.
For MVP you do not need a large team, just a few people are enough to create a fully functioning prototype. In the case of successful numbers of your prototype, the further development of a full-fledged product will require more team, resources and time, however you will be sure that your development and your costs will pay off.

Questions Answers
1) With scrypt ASICs being announced recently (and in development for some time now), what was the reasoning behind using the scrypt algorithm as opposed to something ASIC-resistant, like scrypt-n used by vertcoin and others? 2) It is my understanding that a block time of 2.5 minutes has been a "sweet spot" of sorts in balancing fast transactions without leaving too many orphaned blocks for miners. What drove your decision for a 60 second time? 1st Scrypt is ASIC resistant. Even "if" Scrypt ASICS are delivered on time without issues they will not be delivering anywhere near the jump SHA-256 Bitcoin ASICS did. At most we are talking a 2-3 fold performance incease with a significant reduction in electricty usage. Memory is the bottleneck here. We are not going to see Scrypt ASICS make massive jumps like Bitcoin ASICS do every couple months. Finally most of these other "ASIC resistant" algorithms were not and still have not been tried like Scrypt has when we started development. We are looking into other techs and we are not opposed to changing in the future as technology advances. Biggest difference is the speed at which adjustments are made. KMG "averages" several of the previous blocks and can take awhile to catch up with a major net hash increase. KMG can also get "stuck" for several hours following a major hash decrease. The secret to DigiShield is an asymetrical approach to difficulty. With DigiShield the difficulty is allowed to decrease much faster than it increase. This keeps a blockchain from getting "Stuck" ie not finding the next block for several hours following a major net hash decrease. We spent about 5 days testing about 50 different setups before we found the optimum ratios DigiByte & Dogecoin are now using.
3) Tell us more about DigiShield, and how this differs from KGW, for example. As to Speed, we wanted to make sure DigiByte was fast for every day purchases of goods & services. 60 seconds ensures a merchant can accept DigiByte as payment as the payment transmits within a couple seconds and is confirmed in 60 seconds. DigiShield allows for much larger movements from block to block. This allows DigiShield to counter multi-pools much quicker than KMG. It is all a balancing act. You need to allow the difficulty to increase enough between blocks to catch up to a sudden spike in net hash, but not enough to accidentally send the difficulty sky high when two lucky blocks are found side by side.
Do you ever intend to implement a PoS? For those who are wondering what POS is it refers to Proof of Stake. It essentially means the more coins you hold in your wallet, the more new coins you will recieve as they are generated.
At first POS sounds like a novel idea, but for a real world currency traded for every day goods & services it would not be effective.
Why would people want to spend their coins when they have a stronger incentive to hold on to them?
A POS coin may use less energy, but we want to give people incentive to spend their coins, not hold on to them.
We also believe this technology will never be adopted by a main stream currency.
So as POS currently stands we have no plans of implementing it to DigiByte.
Thank you for detailed and professional reply! +digitipbot 50 dgb.
Alright, you meet someone completely unaware of any cryptocurrency, where do you direct them to teach them about DigiByte? We're talking absolutely no idea, and probably not very good at technology in general either. We are working on developing several new guides for people completely un aware of crypto currency technology. These will be posted on the main DigiByte website.
Our goal is to become a bridge for new people into crypto technology. We have been conducting some focus groups and research with some marketing professionals to find the best way to do this.
We plan on completing this before the Crypto Convention in NY on April 9th.
We are also working on a promotional video that would explain things in visual detail.
How's the promo video coming along? We have lost contact with the original person who was working on it. We are now looking to other people/places to finish what he started. We would like to get this done ASAP.
We have a professional vocie over completed to augment the video.
If you know anyone who would be good at this please let us know. We are looking for a professional video expert who can make something better than the bitcoin video :Link to www.youtube.com
Wish I knew someone or could help contribute any skills in that field. Maybe post something in /Digibyte seeing if anyone has the skills? Great idea!
What differentiates DigiByte from all the other e-currencies out there? 1st of you store data in megabytes & gigabytes. Why not store & send money in DigiBytes?
2nd DigiByte has 21 billion coins so it has a nice ratio to Bitcoin of 1:1000.
3rd We have much faster transaction times with 60 second blocks.
4th We were the 1st to develop & implement the DigiShield difficulty adjustment code. Dogecoin has now succesfully implemented it as well.
Thanks for your reply. As there are so many coins, I am looking for ones that have something unique, something different that could be the 'killer feature' that moves a coin into the mainstream. Most importantly with the name "DigiByte" we have one of the most brand-able names out there.
I don't know what your difficulty adjustment code does but if other coins also have it, there does not seem to be anything that would make people choose your coin over all the others. People understand what a megabyte or gigabyte is. According to our focus group research the idea of using a "Digibyte" as a digital unit of payment is an easy extension or idea for the average person to understand and identify with.
What extras add DigiByte in the cryptocurrency world? What is your goal? The most exciting new trading site to adopt DigiByte has been Prelude.io by Moolah. They are just about to add USD/DGB trading.

DigiByte is to become a billion dollar world-wide payment system that will change the way people of all races, nationalities and backgrounds purchase or sell every day goods and services. Within the next twelve to twenty-four months you will be able to walk into a store and with the press of a button on a smart phone purchase your coffee, groceries or rent a movie.
The mission and vision seems similar to most of the other cryptos. What is your opinion , should coins be more cooperative in this goal? Absolutely, this is why we helped Dogecoin implement DigiShield. There is room for more than 1 crypto just like we have Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Paypal & Western Union.
That is the technical part of helping. Do you think your mission and vision can be accomplished by DigiByte alone? We believe we are all a community, and it is good to have several currencies and new ideas floating around.
We feel it would be narrow minded to say DigiByte will accomplish this all on our own. We are not trying to replace Bitcoin by any means or be the "single" crypto out there. It is likely that different currencies will take root in different parts of the world. So absolutely there will be others to achieve this vision.
As this technology emerges we hope to adapt and improve DigiByte to make it the best we can.
I have been talking to someone on your facebook account about working with sponsored non-profit events/drives but your customer support is lacking. I keep asking questions and proving info but there isnt an effort back to help. How are you going to address customer support moving on, and helping non-profits like other community based coins that are preferred? We apologize for the delay in this. We have been completely swamped and will will look more into it. We receive dozens & sometimes hundreds of messages between Twitter, Facebook, Bitcointalk, DigiByteTalk & Reddit each day. Its a lot to keep on top of while still doing development /promotional work.
Also keep in mind we have been approached by several scammers recently and we like to take time to verify things.
Will you change your mascot? Change as in to something else, or get rid of? What specifically are you referring to?
In your personally opinion what are the odds that a internet currency become so usual to the people as the money in cells? Not sure what you mean by cells?
It is very likely it will become very familiar to common consumers just like money.
1st off crypto technology will save merchants billions each year once they adopt it. With a crypto technology merchants do not have to pay the 3-5% credit/debit card fees. This can equate to billions for some corporations, this alone may be a strong motivation for increased adoption.
2nd, transaction speeds will help encourage adoption. It currently takes several days for Debit or Credit card transactions to clear before a payment receiver can spend the money that has been received. With Bitcoin you can spend money you receive within an hour, with DigiByte it takes 6 minutes.
Finally it is easy to move money around the world. You can move millions around the world in a matter of minutes with no fees or third party involved.
Why should I use DGB over LTC? DigiByte stands a much better chance at being adopted by main stream consumers & merchants. DigiByte is very brandable.
People store data in megabytes & gigabytes. Storing & sending money as DigiByte is very easy for the common person to understand.
Next, DigiByte is much faster than Litecoin. This will make it easier for merchants and consumers to make every day transactions.
Finally, 84 million coins is not enough for a wide spread currency used across the globe. With 21 billion coins DigiByte will eventually have a price of around $1-$10. Perfect for buying low ticket goods & services.
Shibe here. I noticed you guys have a way to buy Digibyte for GBP. I'd like to buy in too, and am in the US. Is the big exchange-train (coinbase->BTC->exchange->digibytes) the only way right now? Are you referring to Moolah.io? They should be implementing the USD/DGB trading any moment now.
We were told yesterday that US customers would be the first ones to deposit fiat there. We have not checked in the last few hours if this is the case yet.
With the recent bitcoin travesty, how do you feel about your cryptocurrency's future? We feel it has opened the door for people to begin taking other alt coins seriously. With the upcoming Crypto Currency convention in New York we feel we will be making a big splash and some good headway among some bigger investors.
The key is getting DigiByte tied directly to the USD which we are working very hard on doing. Then all we need is one big merchant and we are off to the big time!
How do I get in on the premined coins? Not sure what you are getting at. The remaining part of the pre-mine is being used for development expenses.
The most recent of which includes paying for a booth at the NY crypto convention on April 9th as well as all the relate expenses including, travel, brochures, stickers, handouts etc.
I wasn't sure what I was getting at either. I skimmed the faqs and read some blurb about premined coins being given away and my lazy ass decided to ask. I guess I'll be seeing you in NY then! Sounds good, make sure to stop by our booth as we will be giving DGB away there! Also you can use the promo code "digibyte" and get half of your ticket to the cryoto convention. $99 instead of $200.
Will there be an android app for storing and/or mining? There already is an android wallet for DigiByte. You can download it here: Link to play.google.com
There are also several other apps you can mine DigiByte with on a smart phone.
Who is your favorite pokemon? Lol! +digitipbot 100 dgb Not sure how to answer that as I could not tell you the names of any pokemon. Perhaps xploited or politicalwave could help answer this one. :)
I know nothing about this, do you believe that these e-currencies will ever replace/overshadow national currencies, or just supplement them? We do not see them ever "replacing" national currencies as some very bad things would happen before that becomes a reality. We do however see them augmenting traditional currencies. There are several practical uses. Such as increased transaction speeds, ie being able to spend money minutes after you received it. A reduction in merchant fees that would save everyone money in the end. And most importantly the ease of use. What other way could you put millions onto a flash drive? Or send money anywhere on the planet in a few seconds without paying any fees?
Oh. Where is your favorite vacation destination? I have always dreamed of going to the Caribbean and swimming in the crystal clear blue water. So that would be my favorite "dream" vacation and the place where I have never been.
That would be really nice. What do you think happened to that jet that disappeared? Not sure. As a pilot this is really bizare to me. Have not learned the latest, but the last I heard they were looking in Pakistan.
That is a long ways from their intended flight path. Perhaps the plane moved interdimensionaly in a worm hole that opened up?
Perhaps. A random customer at my place of work is pretty convinced aliens have something to do with it. Who is your favorite Muppet? Aliens cannot be ruled out. Definitely Kermit the frog. He is just one cool dude ,who doesn't like him?
Beats me, I don't know how you couldn't! Do you like sushi? Not a fan at all. Meat & potatoes all the way!
What are you doing to try to make the digibyte a standard? Any upcoming online stores? Moolah.io just launch US bank deposits to buy DigiByte! This is a huge step forward! Link to prelude.io
Also we expect some great connections/networking/deals to come out of the New York Crypto convention on April 9th to help make things happen.
Ask you anything? Okay...Will you send me 1 million of your coin to use and distribute here at my own pleasure? Are you good with making promotional videos? If so we may be able to hook you up with 1 million DGB. :)
I don't have any questions, just wanted to say keep up the good work. +digitipbot 50 dgb
Not a question, but just a quick comment to say I love the name, love the look and love the community here, I think you guys are doing a great job and look forward to seeing you grow and flourish. Thank you for the support! We are doing out best and we are in this for the long haul! DigiByte is the only coin we are working on and we are very committed to taking it to the top!
Good to see an AMA from devs :) Thanks for your support! Feel free to ask us anything!
No question, just a comment: please spend some time cultivating a subreddit opt out list. Many mod teams don't allow crypto currency in their subreddit(s) and view it as spammy. No sure what you mean by an "opt out" list or how that pertains to this AMA.
