Proof Of Biblehash (POBH) rewards full nodes participation, while preventing GPUs and ASIC by requiring full blockchain transaction referencing in the hashing function using chained bible verses


We are a decentralized autonomous cryptocurrency giving 10% to orphan-charity, with Sanctuary governance, being passionate about spreading the gospel of Jesus, having the entire KJV bible compiled in our hashing algorithm (POBH).  We are deflationary, decreasing our emissions by 19.5% per year.  We launched in July 2017.  We are a utility that provides an alternative method for giving to charity for those who seek cryptocurrency exposure.  With our Generic Smart Contracts, we seek to become the go-to wallet for Christians.  In the future, we will lease file space on our Sanctuaries and release corporate integration features, such as c# access to the blockchain.  Our platform is a derivative of Dash-Evolution.   We had no pre-mine, and no ICO.  We seek to help orphans globally.

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / BiblePay - TestNet Thread - Pool Testing for Proof of Bible Hash Pool (PoBh) on: August 07, 2017, 01:49:07 AM
Welcome Bible Pay Users,

As you know we have had an exponential increase in interest and network hashing against Bible Pay since the launch, and now it is very hard to solo mine.  As a result, our Dev Team is writing a customized Bible Pay pool.

(The custom pool is necessary since we have a proprietary hash function that is resistant to ASIC and GPU mining.  In addition in the future the algorithm will be extended to raise the bar even higher, by requiring the full nodes to hash transaction lookups based on deterministic hash outputs, requiring the miners to be full nodes).

The purpose of this thread is to invite users to help test the pool from Test Net, to ensure it is ready for primetime.

We need to test things like: Hash Rate measurements, fair block payouts in the block distribution table, an accurate payment distribution at the time the block is solved, mining from many miners under one miner name to one pool, mining from multiple miners to one pool, the isolation of testnet from main net, the ability to withdraw BBP from the pool, the reliability of the pool, the reliability of the client miner, the fallback to solo mining if the pool is down, etc.  I will add more specific test cases and welcome any test cases.

Here is the location to download the latest wallet:

www.biblepay.org
Note, in order to pool mine, you will need at least v1.0.1.8 of the wallet (both daemon and qt should work fine).

How to set up the configuration for pool mining:

On windows, navigate to %appdata%\biblepaycore.  On linux, navigate to ~/.biblepaycore.

Edit the biblepay.conf file, and place the following lines in the config:

poolport=80
pool=http://pool.biblepay.org <- Note this URL is not live until approx Monday Aug 7th (Dev is deploying the pool tonight)
workerid=the_worker_id (explained below)
gen=1
genproclimit=10


After upgrading biblepay and modifying the config, biblepay wallet will automatically revert to solo mining if it cannot connect to the pool, even if the pool goes down for maintenance while you are on vacation.

Next, you will need to configure the Web site side of the pool.

In your web browser navigate to the Pool URL (see pool= above), and click Register, and create a web account.
After that, go the Main menu, then Account, and add a Miner.
(The Notes textbox may be filled in with something personal, like Rooftop linux i686 etc.)
Save the miner record.
Take the name of the miner (IE the worker ID), and edit your config file, setting it where we have "workerid=" in the above example and restart biblepay.

Next, check your mining stats as you normally would (IE check getmininginfo), you may do this by clicking Tools | Information | Console, and then type "getmininginfo".

The pool exposes a few lines of text for debugging purposes, the PoolInfoLine1 is just populated with the current Pool URL if your node is pool mining, and the Pool Miner Guid is populated in Line2.  Note this is just technical info and you do not need to know this.  This is useful if the pool goes down and you want to know if you are pool mining or not.  We have a field called "pool mining: true/false" that sums up what the miner is doing.  If any thread is successfully pool mining, the value is true, otherwise its false.

Please hold off on mining against the main chain In pool mining mode until we fully test the client.  Mining on the main chain in the pool could result in lost BBP, as the pool will sign the block and have no idea who to pay currently (until we verify the distribution system works).  NOTE: To disable the pool settings once you are done testing on that node for the day (IE if you want to mine on the main chain outside of the pool) just put an x in front of the pool= entry in your config file and restart in prod mode.  (IE xpool=pool.biblepay.org).

To start your client in testnet mode do the following:

cd c:\program files (x86)\biblepaycore
biblepay-qt -testnet
The background should be green if in testnet.  Please do all of the testing in testnet.
Note on the above biblepay.conf configuration settings:
You will need to copy the biblepay.conf settings from the biblepay.conf file down to the \testnet3\biblepay.conf file (IE just let the coin start, it will create the file, close the wallet, open the config, copy the setting rows, paste them into the target file, restart the coin).

(I realize this is convoluted, but Biblepay/Bitcoin have the settings coalesced like this for a certain reason so its easier for us to go through the double settings now rather than change the coalesce rules.)

Note that this version of the miner updates the hashmeter more slowly to squeeze out as much performance as possible, so be patient when re-running getmininginfo, as it is delayed approximately 30 seconds before a change occurs.

Alright, good luck everyone, lets make this a great pool.

As of Aug 6th at 20:00 CST US time, the pool has not yet been deployed.  I will edit this message as soon as the website is ready for you all to create accounts.

EMISSION SCHEDULE PROJECTION: http://wiki.biblepay.org/Emission_Schedule
ECONOMICS: http://wiki.biblepay.org/Economics

DESCRIPTION:

A secure blockchain benefiting those in distress - 10% of the emission goes to sponsoring Orphans, with provable contributions, expenses contributed to compassion.com  - and future charities that are more than 75% efficient.  ** NOTE: THE COIN HAS RPC COMMANDS THAT PROVE 100% OF CONTRIBUTIONS ARE SPENT THE WAY INTENDED **
 


Proof of Work has been replaced with Proof Of Biblehash (POBh) - an algorithm that compensates full nodes participation,
  while preventing GPUs and ASIC by requiring full blockchain transaction referencing in the hashing function,
along with chained bible verses.  This means biblepay subsidizes full nodes that stay online.


Seven minute block targets minimize the blockchain file size, yet BiblePay does support Dash's instantsend for speedy transactions.
MasterNodes (called Sanctuaries) will come online after Christmas, allowing all expenses to be voted on and approved.

Expense receipts, to prove the sponshorship of new orphans, will be accessible from inside the wallet and we will even provide phone numbers for auditors to prove
 100% charity expenditures.  (From the rpc, type 'run contribution' to see the tithes into the foundation for a time period, and to see the outgoing sponsorship click the wallets 'Accountability' button to see
 a list of orphans, expenses, sponsorship dates, amounts, and the charity phone number, and txid).
  
For the first 6 months, 10% of each block will be allocated to the foundation, for sponsoring orphans at 100%.  Once per month, we will cash in anything over $40 available on an exchange, and sponsor orphans on our
volunteer time.

   After the sanctuaries go live, the 10% tithe will be diverted to an ongoing budget with DAO governance, voting, allowing the coin to function
as a dectralized autonomous charity; at that point the lead dev and volunteers will become a normal part of the community allowing the coin to run by itself.


To avoid wasting energy on meaningless SHA hashing, (or mining), biblepay introduces the BibleHash algorithm, that allows biblepay to
run on common commodity PCs, since the algorithm is resistant to porting to video cards and ASICs and is resistant to running in non-full node environments.

In addition to the low energy requirements and high efficiency of POB, the reward per block is set to be relative to the length of time the block took to solve,
(meaning that abusive hash attacks result in subsidy decreases).

The network will be high efficiency with low total energy consumption, and the charities sponsored must also be high efficiency (over 75%).
Next, we are deflationary, meaning that we start by issuing a larger amount of coins per block, and each year we tighten the supply by 10%.

The schedule is here: (205 blocks per day, 7 minute block targets):

EMISSION SCHEDULE PROJECTION: http://wiki.biblepay.org/Emission_Schedule


The block reward breakdown is as follows:
http://wiki.biblepay.org/Economics


After our sanctuaries go live, we allocate 10% of each block subsidy to our governance committe (a DAO), automatically, with 100% of that being
spent on charity, and 5% to IT expenses and PR.

Over time, our sanctuaries will become a charity governance committee, to allow our community to take over the day to day operations of the charity: voting on where the money is spent, how much is spent.
This way, we will not be centralized.


We only partner with charities over 75% efficient, meaning over 75% reach the end-user.



NO PREMINE - the lead dev starts with zero, the orphan foundation fund starts with zero, the distribution is entirely fair.  NO ICO.  The distribution curve is evenly declining with no hidden bumps early.
The self-governance committee and masternode payments are deliberately delayed until Christmas, to allow people to prepare and save up the initial requirement.  Running a sanctuary is open to anyone.
The lead dev will sponsor the first 10 orphans out of his own pocket.

Accountability:

The wallet will have a reconciliation page built in at go live, to show all charitable income and expenses.

The expenses will be auditable - to prove the money actually was spent on orphans.

This will be accomplished through the use of : an RPC audit command that tallies the orphan income from the blockchain,
and secondly, an API connection to a database that stores the Compassion expenses (until sanctuaries go live), with auditable backing contact info for each expense.
We will also provide a web page with pictures of the sponsored orphans clicable from the wallet to show our investors what good we are doing.
And finally- we will maintain a copy of receipts in order to maintain 100% accountability.

Future Feature:
Pay to Preach, in wallet ineractive prayer rooms.


ROADMAP:
JULY-DECEMBER 2017: GO LIVE, SPONSOR ORPHANS MONTHLY
JANUARY 2018:  MASTERNODES (SANCTUARIES) GO LIVE
FEBRUARY 2018: MARKETING, IN WALLET PRAYERS

MAY 2018: MARKET BIBLEPAY AS A 401K ALTERNATIVE
