Official Byteball Airdrop to Steemians

in steemit •  3 days ago

Hello Steemians, we’re the core team behind the Byteball project and we’re excited to announce the BIG plans we have for Steemians! We’ve been learning a lot about your platform lately and are extremely impressed, not only with the technologies you have developed, but the community that has assembled around Steem. We think it’s amazing and we want in!

That’s why we’re so excited to announce that we will be offering the 1,000,000+ Steem users free Byteball Bytes (the native token of the Byteball DAG) and more. This will be accomplished through our latest innovation: the Byteball Steem Bot. This is something we’ve been working on for a while now, which is why we’re happy to announce that this will all be happening … TODAY!

If you are one of the 1 million+ Steem users this bot offers you the following benefits:

  • Connect your Steem username to your Byteball wallet. Your username will be stored on the Byteball DAG as an attestation (basically proof of your Steem identity).

  • Byteball will pay you a reward from our undistributed funds for proving your Steem identity. We will also pay you for referring other users (see the ‘Rewards for Steem users’ breakdown below).

  • Send Bytes and Blackbytes to a steem/username instead of less user-friendly crypto wallet addresses. For those not familiar with the Byteball platform, the main currency is Bytes, whilst Blackbytes are the private currency. The feature to send money to usernames will also work for other Byteball-issued tokens.

The attestation record (proof of Steem identity) will also include the user’s Steem reputation score. Applications on the Byteball platform will be able to offer some privileges to attested users depending on their reputation score.

For example, the ICO bot (Byteball is also an ICO fundraising platform) will include an option to offer a discount to users with high Steem reputation. Similarly, Steem users with high reputation that connect their real world identity to their Byteball wallet will also receive a discount on the attestation fee.

Rewards for Steem users

Byteball will pay you based on your Steem reputation score and for referring other users. The stronger your reputation the higher the reward.

The attestation rewards are as follows:

Steem reputation above 30: you get a $10 reward
Steem reputation above 40: you get a $20 reward
Steem reputation above 50: you get a $40 reward
Steem reputation above 60: you get a $80 reward
Steem reputation above 70: you get a $160 reward

All rewards are paid in Bytes and may be subject to changes particularly for the lower reputation scores.

Your reward is split 50/50 between cash and a smart contract, much like rewards are split on Steem between Steem Blockchain Dollars and STEEM.

This means that 50% of the reward is spendable immediately after attestation. The other 50% is paid to a smart contract that can be unlocked after one year. Once this time period is reached you will be able to withdraw the remaining 50% of the reward.

The referral reward depends on the reputation of the referred user, not the referring one and the reward for referring is split 75% to a smart contract and 25% immediately.

Why is Byteball doing this?

We want to engage large communities and bring crypto adoption to the masses through easy-to-use applications that are only possible on crypto platforms, and Steem is the largest, most vibrant crypto community out there uniting projects like Steemit, Utopian.io and Busy.org. We hope that Steem’s huge community of amazing content producers will help achieve this goal.

To our knowledge, this is the very first time that Steem and its huge community is going to become an airdrop platform.

The Byteball team greatly admires the significant real world traction that Steem has achieved in such a short period of time. It is fair to say it is one of the few crypto projects that has managed to achieve significant real world traction.

We are determined to do for smart contracts and commerce what Steem is doing for online publishing: mass crypto adoption. We believe that Steem integration will help move us closer to our vision, which is why today’s announcement is only the beginning of our Steem journey. We look forward to building more projects with the Steem community and creating even more opportunities for everyone.

How Steemians can participate in this first-of-its-kind airdrop

Download a Byteball wallet and follow these simple steps:

  1. If you installed your wallet previously, make sure you selected a single address wallet. If you just installed the wallet, the default wallet will be a single address wallet.

  2. Ask a fellow Steemian who already successfully completed the attestation, if you can borrow 0.0006 GB (Gigabytes) and have him send it to your wallet. As the user sending you the funds will receive the referral reward, it shouldn’t be hard to find willing donors.

  3. Click the “Chat”-button to the bottom right.

  4. Click the “Bot Store” tab to the top right.

  5. Scroll down to find the bot named “Steem attestation bot” and click that.

  6. When added, the bot will greet you with a message explaining the process:

First it will ask you to enter the address of the wallet you want to attest. Simply click the small icon at the bottom left and choose “Insert my address (Small expenses wallet)” and press the send button to send it to the bot.

The bot will now generate a link to Steemconnect. Click this link and follow the login procedure.


Click Continue

Click the account you wish to use and proceed to login to prove you are the owner.

The bot will then ask if you want to store your username private (in your own wallet and only a hash i published) or public (details visible in the Byteball DAG). To enable others to send funds to your username instead of your wallet address, you must choose public.

Finally, the bot will ask you to pay the attestation fee to cover the transaction fee of storing the attestation (private or public) on the DAG. Simply click the “Payment request 0.5 MB”-link and send the funds.

As soon as the payment is confirmed, the bot will let you know it received the payment and transfer your reward based on your Steem reputation. It will also show you the link to your attestation, so you can see how your attestation looks on the Byteball DAG. Clicking the link will take you to the Byteball explorer and show you the attestation unit.

Is this today only? I ask because my rep is like 59.9 and I would like to wait till I am 60 rep so I can get the extra $$$

·

Well done mate, that 60 level was fast :)

·
·

thanks. I had to dump some coin on bots but a man has to do what a man has to do. lol

·
·
·

congratulations friends did not know that technique. You have to use intelligence many times

·

i am new in steemit and have lower reputation please any one suggest me what to do ....??

·
·

Keep on posting. Start with posting pictures of things you love. Write about your hobbies. Then you will get a hold of it. Wish you best of luck!

·
·

You can invest by buying steem and then using them for Bidbots. check @upme on how to use one. It's the fastest method I know besides posting a lot while being in a group with lots of whales.

·

As punqtured said earlier, there is no time limit for the airdrop (but the undistributed funds are limited so don't wait too much...)

·
·

i am working on it as fast as I can lol

Once you're done, can you sponsor me or anyone here willing. OLLGGITGWIEK7E3OUPLMUFHB2J3DEFW3

Yayyyyy. you did it

awwwww yeah

·
·
·

Well done @doomsdaychassis! I'm at 59 too but only 59.163. Is it possible to get that to 60 fast enough do you think? Seems like a big ask to me. 😂

·
·
·
·

i droped about 60 SBD in bots to move mine as far as I did so you would probably ned about 2.5 or 3 times that amount to get to 60 from where you are right now

·
·
·
·
·

am at 49.983 REP.....can you push me to 50? please

·
·
·
·
·

Thanks for the information @doomsdaychassis.

I don't know how to use the bots so it's not a route I'll be going down, especially for that amount of money.

I went ahead in the end with my reputation as it was but I've not been able to receive the transaction a couple of people sent me so I'm a bit stuck.

@tarmo888 has looked at it for me and doesn't know what the problem is either so I'll wait until next week and if the funds don't appear I'll maybe try with a new wallet.

Thank you for getting back to me. I appreciate it. 😊

If you could send me some Bytes that would be much appreciated :)

What does it mean ?

Received a payment but it was not sent from the expected address. Make sure you are in a single-address wallet, otherwise switch to a single-address wallet or create one and send me your address before paying.

·
·

You gave us the bot address. You have to give us your address (you can find it in "Receive").

·
·
·

Sorry for the mistake guys.

Got this message now what?

Please pay for the attestation: Payment request: 49000 bytes.

Alternatively, you can prove ownership of your address by signing a message: [Request to sign message: cityguides HD7DNLIWGEHGJ5KWRNU2DT5QDGZ7OTD6], in this case your attestation reward (if any) will be 80% of the normal reward.

·
·
·
·
·

I got this message too...can you help me what I'll doing??
Everyone Help to answer it

·
·
·
·
·

You have a choice, pay the attestation fee or sign a message. If you sign a message then your attestation reward will be only 80% of normal reward.

Not used to seeing so many strangers try to help someone at once on the internet. What a great community. Looking forward to becoming more involved. There is a lot to learn here for someone with very limited crypto experience.

·
·
·

Dont't worry, you'll do just fine. 🙂

Would you mind helping a fellow Steemian out please?

Amount: 49000

Thank you! I am not seeing MB like the intrusions said, instead I see 49000 bytes. Does that matter?

·
·
·
·

sent ^^

·
·
·
·

Lol ! 😂 It's the same, just different units !

Hey @punqtured, could you explain this?

byteball.png

"Malware.QVM06.Gen is detected (specially by Qihoo 360 Antivirus, Avast Antivirus) as a Heur Trojan found to locate in C:\Program Files[zip file name]\Usp10.dll

If Malware.QVM06.Gen affection is real, it is recommended to remove it quickly as such HEUR Trojan features the capability of introducing in web applications and utilizing their JS techniques to record confidential information. Besides, one should also remove the ones brought in by the Trojan. If the detection of Malware.QVM06.Gen is false positive, one should also fix it in order to get a perfect user experience."

·

Apparently Its MOST likely a false positive,

no other anti viruses are showing up as anti virus but upvoted to show that this Chinese freemium stuff that only China uses, and its generic malware

The heuristics are being weighed as a virus but its not... You can't trust garbage "bones" anti virus/anti malware programs.

Thanks to @themarkymark for explaining this on https://steemspeak.com Very enlightening!

And thank you to @jonny-clearwater for bringing the whole thing to my attention as its all very important stuff to learn, and I would have never known this today if it wasnt for this!

·
·

Very very likely false positive...always worth looking at though.

i just remind myself how i wrote post about gettign free GBYTE in dec 2016 - http://fuk.io/byteball-new-cryptocurrency-without-ico-claim-it-for-free/ :)

·

So you're a first-rounder? :)

What I can say is thank you byteball.

I did it according to your instruction. It has not shown “Payment request 0.5 MB” yet. Welcome byteball joining steem, fantastic.

·

Same here. Added the chat bot, but there is no message or a steemconnect link. just an empty chat.

·
·

Yep, it seems to be hung up. Maybe too much demand? I can't get the bot to respond either.

Edit: It just worked and sent the steemconnect link

·
·
·

Hope they will solve it soon!

·
·
·
·

It is going, just slowly. I let it sit for a while and it eventually hits the next step.

·
·
·
·
·

Let's hope so...
Thanks!

·

Delete the bots from contacts and then re add it, showed up right away for me, I waited like 4 hours yesterday with nothing

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Mine's not syncing at all. You think deleting the bot will help?

·
·

You are right. It is just very slow. ;)

The bot is going down because many steemian register :)

·
·

10 hours later and the bot still hasn't responded to me. Did you do anything to make it work? Send something repeatedly or just wait?

·

Try to restart the app and send your wallet address again to the bot. It happened to me too but worked well after second attempt! :)

I've been following Byteball for a while and have some already. It's great to see Byteball getting involved here too!

·

Great to hear. This is only the beginning. There will definitely be more interesting and innovate use cases where the two projects coming together will prove a huge benefit for both projects.

·

Greetings @pfunk.......are you interested in assisting in the opening of bleujay's new account at Byteball.

Thank you for your service as witness.

Cheers.

Appreciate your reply......thank you.

Hello, I just downloaded the app.

I need help with 0.0006GB to get started. Any kind-hearted steemian can send to this address:

·

sent!

·

Thanks :D

·
·

how to be able to send to others @lunaticpandora

This is cool stuff!
Never lose faith.
Airdrop for the whole community.
WOW!!

As stated in many occasions already, we are happy and honoured to help out!

·

It's a privilege to have been whitelisted for contributions from Utopian contributors. Thank you very much for that.

·
·

Hi @punqtured , for some reason I did the entire process, was verified, and sent the fee, and the bot did not reply. Its been 15 minutes.

Any reason?

Regards, @gold84

·
·
·

Definitely a reason. The obvious being that it's seriously overwhelmed right now. The second definitely being that the bot sometimes need to pause for a while to wait for transactions to confirm. It's usually just a couple of minutes and it will always pick up where it left so no need to worry :-)

·
·
·
·

I have sent around 20 users , the bytes for signups attests, and have not received any rewards. Is it because it is slow now, does it take time?

Does the bot communicate a referral reward or how does it work?

Regards, @gold84

·
·
·
·

I now have a new error ...I have failed to send the 600k bytes to friends....tried like over 5 times!!!!!

Screenshot_20180714-121704~02.png

I got this message more than once and found my Byteball program/wallet shut off every time that I got it:

Currently I think that it runs, but it is still worrying me.

What is the deadline of the registration to your airdrop?
I ask because currently my reputation is at 59.7, but I am working feverishly on raising it to over 60 hopefully in the next week.
Give me 2 weeks and I probably surpass the 60.1
