Re: Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

Thanks for your kind words! The code will be professionally audited and I hope that in addition many keen eyes and sharp minds will review the concepts and the implementation for vulnerabilities. Ultimately I think that the best way to secure the system is to have as many people understand it as pos...

Re: Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

After you start Flex running by doing: $ flexcontrol start clean you can point your browser to http://localhost:8729/ This will show you the calendar, which if you haven't started mining or synchronized with another node, will be empty. As you mine, it will start to fill up. The calendar is a bit li...

Re: Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

In this post, I'll describe a feature of Flex which allows you to send and receive bitcoins with some degree of privacy - private deposit addresses. Using private deposit addresses is almost as simple for the user as using normal deposit addresses. Suppose that Alice wants to send 0.01 bitcoins to B...

Re: Announcement - Bitholla - Simplifying Bitcoin Payments

It looks good to me.

Could you post a video showing the app in action?

If any readers out there have an android phone, maybe you could try it out and post a review.

Re: I'm Roger Ver, the first Bitcoin angel investor, ask me anything!

Hi Roger,

What have you learned about investing from your experiences with bitcoin companies?

Is there advice you would give to others about what to avoid?

Re: I am Thomas Voegtlin, creator of Electrum. Ask me Anything!

Hi Thomas, Thanks for Electrum and for doing the AMA. I have a project which uses Electrum to receive bitcoins by importing private keys. It's currently a bit awkward to get it set up because you have to open the gui, close the gui, paste into a wallet file and so on. You can see the gruesome detail...

Re: Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

I've fixed a bug in the latest version at github. Previously, if you tried to transfer or withdraw a deposit before the deposit address had been confirmed (i.e. the associated secrets were disclosed to a second set of relays and they didn't complain), it would fail silently. Now it will fail with an...

Re: Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

Here's an edited version of the video. There are some captions which might make it easier to understand what's going on. https://vimeo.com/145687724#t=512 It skips to the point where the bitcoin deposit is confirmed. Then you can see the bitcoins travel from user to user and then finally into an ele...

Re: Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

In this post, I'll explain how to send bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in seconds using Flex. I'll presume that you have two users who are synchronized to the same chain and who both have electrum connected to Flex. This means that they both get the same details when they do: user1@host$ flex-cli...

Re: Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

In this post, I'll explain how to configure Flex to use electrum. In later posts I'll explain how to create, transfer and withdraw from deposit addresses as well as trade currencies. First, you'll need to be running Ubuntu 14.04. You can probably get it to work on other linux distros as well, but th...

Flex - Send Coins by Sending Secrets

Hi everybody, I think this is a good time and place to announce the existence of Flex. Flex lets you move and trade cryptocurrencies by breaking the private keys into many parts and scattering them among a network of untrusted nodes. Protocols for passing secrets verifiably and recovering informatio...
