Gitcoin Grants

Hi all Ethereum Redditors!
It is now possible to support Nethermind (https://gitcoin.co/grants/142/nethermind) and many other projects via Gitcoin Grants Q1 2020.
So far the total amount of external funding for Nethermind amounted to ~$50k with grants from Ethereum Foundation and the previous Gitcoin Grants which means that each code commit in Nethermind cost ~10$. You can make a huge difference with every single $ or wei.

New Ethereum based CTF game: CCTF

Dear Ethereum Redditors,

A new CTF game called "CryptoCurrency (is) The Flag" will go live next week, which is meant to teach you how vulnerabilities work that are related to Ethereum and not limited to only smart contracts. The goal is to collect as much Ethereum as you can from the CCTF challenges. Time will play an important role.

It will be played through an imaginary ICO and on Ropsten. Challenges involve, but not limited to:
- Common mistakes we have seen through the last years leading to Ethereum wallet breaches
- Web based vulnerabilities leading to Ethereum wallet breaches
- Privilege escalation on a server in order to access Ethereum wallets
- A few smart contracts (without source code too, to practice reverse engineering)
- Possibility to breach other players' Ethereum (eg. wargame)

If you are interested in playing the game, you can visit: https://cryptoctf.org/
A guide was also written for the very beginners: https://cryptoctf.org/guide

We are doing this kind of CTF for the first time and hope you will like it. Credit goes to six, kunkori, null and fellow hackers from Hackerspace Budapest.

Good luck!

looking for suggestions on how to avoid running an ICO while developing a project

Dear Ethereum redditors, I am looking for suggestions and feedback on how to get our tokens distributed without running an ICO, especially a big one. I am posting on ethereum since I am making a case against ICOs the way they are being used right now.
The whole idea behind Ethereum is the democratization of finance, including crowdsales, and our project aims at democratizing the organization and management of pools of tokens. Such need will become an urgent with the growth of Ethereum-based tokens, probably during the course of 2018 already.
I will avoid naming our project's name, as some of you already know me and I would like to just have a discussion about a good strategy to fund projects and allow the distribution of tokens of a blockchain project.
Our platform is built on a solidity smart contracts protocol and all of our operations are run through smart contracts. As a blockchain project, we leverage the Ethereum blockchain and build software on top of it. Hence our costs are mostly our work (we are a team of 3: 2 on software and 1 on PR).
By design, the platform costs at least 90% less than traditional centralized architectures to run, hence our burn rate is extremely low.
We have self-funded the project so far and find ourselves in a position where our protocol is almost ready for launch, our first product has been tested for months, and our redisigned platform is also almost ready. We are not even sure we could scale as quickly in terms of talent acquisition (there is a shortfall of blockchain talent atm).
Notwithstanding not being listed on any exchange we have an amount of traffic on our website which is not significantly lower than a comparable listed project's.
We do not see the point of raising huge amounts of funds right now, and we would like to increase the engagement of our community. Our goal is that people buy our tokens because they want to use our products, and not to just speculate on making a quick profit after the listing.
Through an algorithm which we call proof-of-performance, our tokens are distributed to contributors to our protocol. As you might realize, ours is an inflation token, by design similar to Ether but the mining/minting process is similar in concept, but different in practice.
We are aware that getting investments is an important part of each business, however we would like to delay this part for the time we have validated our business idea on the mainnet and can actually use those funds to grow the team and promote our project commercially.
We think that the distribution of the tokens is a fundamental part of a network/protocol and, thanks to the proof-of-performance, we know that, over time, the token will be held by contributors to the network.
We are planning to pre-mint some tokens, sell a small part of those to parties who are interested in helping us grow the project, use some of the tokens as an incentive for developers, and then retain the rest for phase2 of the project. Contributors to our network/protocol will be able to gain tokens for free by using the protocol and, at a delayed stage, take part to a sale since they will need our tokens to use the platform.
Since we are very close to releasing our protocol on the Ethereum mainnet and are creating our token coincidentally, we would like to get your feeback on whether this is a suitable way of getting funded and distributing our token.

Blockchain minor

Hello fellow Ethereum Redditors,
Since some time I have been interested in the Blockchain technology and I would like to know your opinion on the following matter. I'm currently following a bachelor in Information Technology and next year we have to do a minor. I am considering doing a Blockchain minor, as our university gives us the opportunity to 'build' our own minor if it is not available in other locations (which, to my understanding, is not the case). I would love to know your opinion on the matter; Do you think it will be worthwhile? I think and hope there will be a bright future for Blockchain technology.
Note: Serious answers would be appreciated.

[Winner’s Thread #57] Wow!! I never thought it would be me!!!

What a thrill this is!!!
I honestly was stunned (and a little overwhelmed!) when I realized I’d been picked this month.
I’m relatively ancient for a redditor, thoroughly middle aged - and a little bit of a technological luddite. Setting up accounts and sorting through all of the business end of this has been a learning experience. I don’t know how many hours I spent on that, but it was a lot!! Luckily, with a little bit of handholding from u/lilfruini I feel like I’m in pretty good shape (hope your physics went well!!). I have learned SO MUCH, and if nothing else, I’m grateful for that - I honestly had only the dimmest understanding of bitcoin and now I’ve got a bitcoin wallet! What?!?!
A bit about me… Middle aged like I said before. I’m a speech therapist, a plant lover (as has been noted already!), and I have a very rare neurodegenerative disease called Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia. It’s a progressive disease, and although nobody would wish for something like that, if you’re going to have a neurodegenerative disease, I pretty much have the very best one.
Honestly, I am pretty lucky. I’m in a profession that I love, a place that I love - all of my needs for shelter, food, safety, companionship are met… I know that I’m doing better already than so many, and I have so much to be grateful for in my life.
As to what I plan to do with donations… I had a lot of time yesterday to think about it!!!
First - I need some things for my students - I need a voice amplifier, and some new materials that I can use both in person and for distance learning. If I can find one cheap, I’d also really love to have a second monitor to make teletherapy easier to manage. I’ve already spent so much of my own money on teachers pay teachers and other sites, but there are many more materials and supplies that would help make this challenging school year a little better and easier.
Second - I have my eye on a couple plants - a rubber tree tineke and a manjula pothos… neither of them are very expensive or rare, I just haven’t felt like I had the leeway in my wallet to treat myself to those recently.
And last, but certainly not least. This week just happens to be Spastic Paraplegia Awareness Week! The Spastic Paraplegia Foundation (SPF) is the national organization dedicated to advancing research and finding cures for two groups of closely related, progressive neurological disorders (Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia and Primary Lateral Sclerosis). I have been participating in all of the studies available to me - (knowledge is power!) and although I don’t have a lot of money to donate towards research, I certainly don’t mind being a guinea pig in the hopes that someday a treatment or a cure might be found. There are clinical trials going on in Australia right now and they’re working on funding to bring trials to the US as well. If any of you are so inclined and want to learn more you can check out sp-foundation.org.
Thank you to all - and especially again to u/lilfruini who was an enormous help to me.
update
This has been a crazy 24-ish hours!!
I'm not gonna lie, seeing all the notifications about money coming into my accounts has been exciting, but what's been even more meaningful to me are all the kind words, congratulations, and well wishes from all over the world.
Pandemic, and protests, and fires, and everything else going on in the US this summer... It's worn me down... I've been feeling so very tired deep into my bones. All y'all have reminded me that it's not always this way - hope for humanity restored!! :)
My heart feels full and warm and I sincerely wish that everyone could experience this. It's amazing and even after the money is gone I will remember this feeling.
I'm not a millionaire! ;)
I haven't done the exact math, but I'm a thousandaire for sure. I hope all of you who have donated know that I genuinely appreciate it and I will be certain to put this money to good use. I've tried to keep up with thanking everyone - if I missed you it wasn't intentional (except for that one guy - he was a jerk!!)
Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving me this amazing gift.

Ideas for generating Moons demand

Hello CryptoCurrency redditors :)
Back in May, the Reddit admins and the subreddit mods announced CryptoCurrency Moons.
TL;DR: Moons are a new way for people to be rewarded for their contributions to CryptoCurrency.... They represent ownership in the subreddit, they are tokens on the Ethereum blockchain controlled entirely by you, and they can be freely transferred, tipped, and spent in CryptoCurrency.
Today, we want to open a discussion to generate ideas on how to best encourage demand for Moons. The supply is distributed to subreddit contributors, mods, and Reddit.

Initial Demand for Moons

Other Ideas

This is where you come in! There are only ideas, not plans. We need your feedback and your other ideas!
Should we sell CryptoCurrency merchandise through a partner, and have the partner use a portion of profits to purchase and then burn (destroy) Moons?
Should we sell subreddit advertising and promotions? Some people are understandably against all ads, and if they were added, they would be very obviously labelled as an ad. CryptoCurrency had almost 8 million pageviews last month alone. ethtrader has a banner ad for purchase with another Community Points coin.
Should we attempt to get companies to do "giveaways" for Moons? Suppose you needed a certain amount of Moons to enter.
Some of these will be difficult to do before there's a market to trade mainnet Moons for other cryptos. Thus, this doesn't need to be a rushed conversation.

The Great Reddit Scaling Bake-Off

The Great Reddit Scaling Bake-Off
Update (9/30): We are still working on finalizing our scaling solution. We've been very impressed with the breadth and depth of proposals submitted in this Bake-Off. Many projects have done great work, and it's good to see so many ideas in the Ethereum ecosystem.
While we are continuing our due diligence, it's taking a bit longer than we expected to understand all the options in detail. As soon as we have more to share, we will make an update here. Thank you for your patience.
***
Update (8/3): Thanks to all the teams who submitted a proposal. We appreciate the work you put in, and we have begun reviewing the submissions. If we have follow-up questions, we will post them as comments on the submission posts. Thank you.
***
Submissions will be organized in a collection alongside this post. We welcome the community to leave questions and comments on the proposals.
To submit your proposal: Please make a separate post in Ethereum with your submission. Then either tag u/jarins and u/EvanVanNess in a comment (not in the post body), or send us a PM with the link to your post. Once we are notified, we will get it added to the collection. (If your post gets removed by moderator bots, do not resubmit. We will approve it when adding to the collection)
While we prefer proposals to be public, if there is information you need to share privately, please send it to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).
***
tl;dr: Do you believe your Ethereum scaling technology can handle Reddit's scale? It's time to let the Ethereum community hear about it. Send your demo by July 31, 2020.
This is your chance to earn some fame but, to be clear, there is no prize if your solution is chosen or modified to meet Reddit’s needs. Our lawyer made us write this.
https://preview.redd.it/q7hhi6lzlp551.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=cdb26cbbe59e26f4fc73da5740da1308e2a87579

The Goal

In conjunction with the Ethereum Foundation, Reddit is inviting Ethereum scaling projects to show the community how your scaling solution can be used to bring Community Points to mainnet. Our goal is to find a solution that will support hundreds of thousands of Community Points users on mainnet today, and can eventually scale to all of Reddit (430 million monthly users).
We’ve evaluated some of the most promising scaling solutions, and have learned a few things:
  1. There are plenty of awesome projects that we don't know about yet. We seem to learn about a promising new scaling solution every day.
  2. Most existing scaling solutions focus on the exchange use case, which favors optimizing for transfers. Many of these designs don't take into consideration the costs of obtaining tokens or entering the scaling system, which can be significant. Community Points distributions have cost an order of magnitude more gas than all other operations combined, primarily due to on-chain storage costs associated with onboarding new users.
  3. It's unclear how to determine the best solution. There is a lot of code, a lot of documentation, and a lot of hype out there. But there are very few objective real-world reviews or comparisons of various products/implementations.
  4. We need the Ethereum community's help to figure this out.
Do you have a scaling project that meets the criteria below? If so, share your demo by July 31, 2020. Please note that all demos need to simulate Community Points usage for 100,000 users.
We also invite all scaling experts in the Ethereum community to comment on any demos submitted to enable a better understanding of the trade-offs and compromises between different solutions.
We will review the demos and plan to share any updates by September. While we don’t expect any novel scaling projects, we hope that you, the Ethereum scaling expert, can show us how to scale Community Points.
Demos should include:
  1. A live proof of concept showing hundreds of thousands of transactions
  2. Source code (for on & off-chain components as well tooling used for the PoC). The source code does not have to be shared publicly, but if Reddit decides to use a particular solution it will need to be shared with Reddit at some point
  3. Documentation
    1. How it works & scales
    2. Cost estimates (on-chain and off-chain)
    3. How to run it
    4. Architecture
    5. APIs (on chain & off)
    6. Known issues or tradeoffs
  4. Summary of cost & resource information for both on-chain & off-chain components used in the PoC, as well as cost & resource estimates for further scaling. If your PoC is not on mainnet, make note of any mainnet caveats (such as congestion issues).

Requirements

Scaling. This PoC should scale to the numbers below with minimal costs (both on & off-chain). There should also be a clear path to supporting hundreds of millions of users.
  • Over a 5 day period, your scaling PoC should be able to handle:
    • 100,000 point claims (minting & distributing points)
    • 25,000 subscriptions
    • 75,000 one-off points burning
    • 100,000 transfers
Decentralization. Solutions should not depend on any single third-party provider.
  • We prefer solutions that do not depend on specific entities such as Reddit or another provider, and solutions with no single point of control or failure in off-chain components, but recognize there are numerous trade-offs to consider
Usability. Scaling solutions should have a simple end user experience.
  • Users shouldn't have to maintain any extra state/proofs, regularly monitor activity, keep track of extra keys, or sign anything other than their normal transactions
  • Transactions complete in a reasonable amount of time (seconds or minutes, not hours or days)
  • Free to use for end users (no gas fees, or fixed/minimal fees that Reddit can pay on their behalf)
  • Bonus points:
    • Users should be able to view their balances & transactions via a blockchain explorer-style interface
    • Exiting is fast & simple
Interoperability. Compatibility with third party apps (wallets/contracts/etc) is necessary.
  • Scaling solutions should be extensible and allow third parties to build on top of it
  • APIs should be well documented and stable
  • Documentation should be clear and complete
  • Third-party permissionless integrations should be possible & straightforward
  • Simple is better. Learning an uncommon or proprietary language should not be necessary. Advanced knowledge of mathematics, cryptography, or L2 scaling should not be required. Compatibility with common utilities & toolchains is expected.
  • Bonus Points: Show us how it works. Do you have an idea for a cool new use case for Community Points? Build it!
Security. Users have full ownership & control of their points.
  • Balances and transactions cannot be forged, manipulated, or blocked by Reddit or anyone else
  • Users should own their points and be able to get on-chain ERC20 tokens without permission from anyone else
  • Points should be recoverable to on-chain ERC20 tokens even if all third-parties involved go offline
  • A public, third-party review attesting to the soundness of the design should be available
  • Bonus points:
    • Public, third-party implementation review available or in progress
    • Compatibility with HSMs & hardware wallets
Other Considerations
  • Minting/distributing tokens is not performed by Reddit directly [1]
  • One off point burning, as well as recurring, non-interactive point burning (for subreddit memberships [2]) should be possible and scalable
  • Fully open-source solutions are strongly preferred
[1] In the current implementation, Reddit provides signed data for claims, but does not submit the actual claim transaction for the user (the user does that themselves). Note that smart contracts are considered independent of Reddit provided there is a path to decentralizing control over them.
[2] Subreddit memberships are currently implemented as a contract acting as an ERC777-style operator that can burn points on a monthly basis, but we are open to changing that implementation.

Community Points Overview

To help you get started, this is an overview of how Community Points work today and some stats on how it's used. We are open to changing most implementation details, provided the basic requirements (above) are met.

Usage stats over the past month

Number of Community Points holders: ~17,500
Number of transfers: ~20,000
(reference: reddit.dappradar.com)
Number of subreddit memberships: ~800

Contracts

Community Points is built around 3 contracts:
  1. SubredditPoints: the ERC20 token
  2. Distributions: manages token supply & token claims
  3. Subscriptions: enables membership subscriptions in the form of recurring token burn

Points Distribution & Claims

Token supply is controlled by distribution rounds managed in the Distributions contract and triggered by Reddit. For each round (occurring ~monthly), Reddit submits a proposal for points distribution to a subreddit for approval. Once approved, Reddit issues signed claims for individual users according to the agreed upon points distribution. These claims can be redeemed on-chain. Claims are obtained from Reddit, and submitted to the Distributions contract, which validates the claim and calls the Subreddit Points contract to mint points.

Memberships

Subreddit memberships are obtained by burning points via the Subscriptions contract. Redditors can optionally configure their membership to be renewable on a monthly basis without additional interaction. The Subscriptions contract is granted permission to burn points by being configured as an ERC777-style default operator in the Subreddit Points contract.

[Winner's Thread #55] Looks like the Tooth Fairy is Real!

Hello MillionaireMakers!
My name is Tibor, and I’m just a regular every-day normal guy. Going to be celebrating my 33rd b-day in a couple of weeks, and I could not have wished for a nicer present than this!
I work as a Technical Consultant at a local IT company, where I facilitate data migration into archiving solutions and cloud storage systems. This is every bit as fascinating as it sounds /s.
In my free time I enjoy nature, climbing walls, going biking, and if the weather does not let me go out, I spend my time learning about watch complications or mixing techno with my bedroom DJ setup at home, or just watching stupid movies.
Due to an unscheduled dental emergency, I spent most of my week in the dental cabinet, and I was still pumped up on anaesthetics when I got home and opened my laptop to see the news. Surprised is an understatement. The reactions of the people on reddit blew me away, and I tried my best to send a thank-you note to all commenters. Sorry if I missed yours!
I'm sure that the winnings will go mostly to cover my medical bills, but I am going to donate 10% of this to a local org called Beard Brothers. They are knows for funding ambulances and creating great care packages for local orphanages and old folks homes.
I want to thank you all in advance for your donations and positive vibes. You are all amazing! I have to sleep now, it's past 4 Am where I live. What a day...
EDIT: I've been up for a couple of hours now trying to get through all messages and the mountain of notifications. I'm sure this is a once-in-a-lifetime feeling and am trying to ride it while it lasts. I'm overwhelmed by all the positive messages, amazing vibes and b-day wishes. I appreciate all of them.
Since people have been asking, I'll try to add some edits to keep you posted with progress. So far it's ~$500 on PayPal and Revolut combined, and ~$45 in combined crypto. I can't thank you enough! I'll be waiting a few days for things to slow down and really looking forward to making my donation. Everything else is going to fund my pearly whites :)
EDIT 2: Thank you all for your donations and positive vibes! It's end of day one, and things have finally settled down. A total so far would be $990 on PayPal, $31 on Revolut, $54 in Bitcoin, $34 in Bitcoin Cash, $12 Nano, and $10 in Ether! Wooohoo :) Thank you all!!
EDIT 3: The weekend has passed, and I was sort of offline while visiting family. A huge Thank You again to everyone that donated, and sorry for the late reply on your comments. New Total is $1120 Paypal, $31 Revolut, $76 BTC, $34 Bitcoin Cash, $16 in Ether and 14.53 Nano. Thank You!!
EDIT 4: I have donated $150 to the local org Beard Brothers. Their newest fundraiser is aiming to build a school for the needy around the Cluj-Napoca area. I can happily provide proof of my donation if asked (with a heads-up that all communication in this regards is, unfortunately, in Romanian).
EDIT 5: It's been almost 2 weeks since I posted this, and the new Total would be $1437 on Paypal + Revolut combined and ~ $150 in mixed Crypto. I'll probably hodl the crypto, and the rest is enough to cover a chunk of my dentals. (not bad, for a random comment on Reddit). Thank you to everyone who donated, and everyone that sent congrats! :)
EDIT 6 Some (final?) statistics from me after this very interesting and awesome experience. I received ~$70 since my last edit, making the new total a pretty round $1500 on Paypal and Revolut combined, and ~$150 in combined crypto. I want to thank the (approximately) 400 redditors who donated, and I really hope that I was able to reply to all of you kind enough to comment in here. This was truly an unexpected surprise, made more amazing by each and every one of you!
P.S. Special thanks to lilfruini for making this entire process amazingly smooth.

Canadian Redditors, I'm having trouble finding a reputable reliable exchange for trading ethereum. Please help?

I have been using Quadriga, but their Electronic Funds Transfer is out of order, their minimum for Interac e-transfer is too high for me, and they offer fuck all for support. Two other exchanges I've used in the past seem to be defunct. What is a really good exchange for Canadians to buy Ethereum that works?

How to sell r/FortniteBR bricks.

How to sell FortniteBR bricks.
So you want to sell some (or all) of your FortniteBR Bricks? You've come to the right place! First go ahead and subscribe here to HNY.
The following is a guide designed to help you sell your Bricks as quickly and easily as possible for a stable crypto coin called xDai which is valued at 1 US Dollar each. It is created to help you complete the process even if you have never even heard of cryptocurrency besides that line in Ant Man and the Wasp.
Honeyswap? You can forget Banks, Credit Cards, and Paypal!
Be aware that the follow up to this guide (actually getting US Dollars in your bank account) will only be available to you if you are a legal adult or have a legal adult who is willing to create a Coinbase or similar cryptocurrency exchange account to help you cash out. If you are not able to create a Coinbase account and you don't have anyone who can help you cash out, consider completing this guide anyways as this tech is available to anyone with a computer or smartphone.You do not need permission from anyone to use the Ethereum or Xdai networks. As time goes by both the xDai and the Ethereum will continue to grow and you will likely benefit greatly by getting involved at this early stage in the crypto market.
Most people who are new to crypto and want to buy some as an investment are forced sign up for crypto exchanges and buy indirectly. You as a brick holder have an opportunity to build a crypto portfolio without putting in a penny of your (or your parents) money.
All you want is a couple skins and you dont want to go through this process? Look around this sub and the rest of the Honeyswap community for other interested brick buyers. Some redditors who complete this guide are likely to be willing to buy them from you (for a reduced price of course) so you might even be able to post here and find someone. Just make sure you understand the risks of sending Bricks to someone and possibly getting nothing in return if they turn out to be a scammer.

Step 1, Figure out how much your bricks are worth and whether it is worth your time to proceed with the rest of this guide:
Follow the link below to see the current price of Bricks. At the moment while working on this guide 1 xBrick = 0.06856 WXDAI which means that currently 1 brick is worth almost 7 cents at the moment. You should follow the link below to see the current price of bricks, then multiply the price per brick by the total number of bricks you want to sell to see your estimated profits before moving forward.
https://info.honeyswap.org/pai0x7feb0ddd7bdc11589f6919a51ac5536bcfd854bf

Step 2, A bit of prep work:
There are a few things to get done before you can start the withdraw and sale of your Bricks, I'm going to break this step into a few parts.
A) Download and install the Metamask browser extension here https://metamask.io/
B) Follow the prompts when installing Metamask, write down your seed phrase in a secure safe place that you will remember.
C) Get some Rinkeby ETH here https://faucet.rinkeby.io/
In order to use this "faucet" you will need to copy your Ethereum address in Metamask by clicking "Account 1" after opening the Metamask extension (clicking Account 1 will copy your address).
Paste it in a post on Twitter or Facebook, it shouldn't matter what else you put in the post besides your address. After making the post copy the link to the post and paste it in the Rinkeby faucet field. You wont need a lot so feel free to select the smallest amount the faucet gives in order to receive it more quickly.
After you receive the Rinkeby eth you can delete your post if you want, verify you received it first by opening Metamask and clicking on the drop down menu in the middle on top (it probably says "Main Ethereum Network") and switch to "Rinkeby". You should see the eth from the faucet relatively soon after you share your post with it.
D) Add the xDai network to Metamask by following this official guide https://www.xdaichain.com/for-users/wallets/metamask/metamask-setup

Step 3, Withdrawing your bricks:
Open up your reddit app on your smartphone and click on your profile in the top left.
A menu will appear on the left side of the app, click on "Vault" in that menu then click the arrow at the top right that looks like a paper plane.
Paste your Ethereum address from step 2 in the field that says "User or Ethereum Address".
Directly under your Eth address there is a drop down list of coins, select FortniteBR then put in the number of bricks you plan to sell (all of them?).

Step 4, Bridging your Bricks
You have withdrawn your Bricks to Rinkeby, now you need to move them to the xDai network in order to sell them.
Open Metamask and make sure you are selected on the Rinkeby network (see the end of step 2 if stuck on this).
Thanks to u/Oninteressant123 we have a straightforward bridge UI!
Click on this link to access his bridge UI https://coyoats.github.io/brickbridge/
Click the "Connect" button and allow view permissions when prompted by Metamask. You should be able to see the amount of bricks that you sent from your vault. If it says 0 or it didnt connect, refresh the page and click connect again.
In the "Amount" field put the same amount of bricks that you sent from your vault.
Click the "Go" button, metamask should pop up, make sure to change the "gas price" field to 1 if it is not already and click the blue "confirm" button.
Wait a minute.
Open the Metamask extension and switch to the xDai network.
Go to the xDai faucet here https://xdai-faucet.top/
Copy your eth address again and paste it in the field, complete the captcha, stay on the page and wait a few minutes to receive your 1 penny of xDai. When I tested this step after I completed the captcha it kept spinning/loading for a long time then I finally received my .01 xDai.
Before moving on make sure Metamask displays your 0.01 xDai (from the faucet) and the correct number of Bricks.

Step 5, Swapping your Bricks
Go here https://honeyswap.org/#/swap and accept the token pair update that will pop up in the top right.
In top drop down menu (it should say XDAI) select xBrick then hit the "MAX" button, it should fill the field with the total amount of Bricks you sent. (See step 6 if you are interested in generating income from fees of other people using this exchange, in that case swap a little over half your Bricks to xDai).
When you click the bottom drop down menu you will be prompted to select the default pair list, do that and select XDAI.

Notice the green or red % at the bottom across from \"Price Impact\"
Take a look at the price impact % in green or red on your screen.
Click on the gear icon at the top right of the window and make sure your "Slippage Tolerance" is at least slightly greater than your "Price Impact". An example would be if your "Price Impact" says 0.73% you will want to type at least 0.75% or 0.8% to be safe in the "Slippage Tolerance" field.
Click the Swap button and when Metamask pops up change the "gwei" field to 2. Confirm the transaction in Metamask.
Congratulations you have converted your Bricks into xDai, a stablecoin valued at 1 US Dollar each!

Step 6, What now?
I'm working on a follow up guide where I detail the process of bridging your xDai to the Ethereum network as Dai, transferring it to Coinbase and selling it for USD then finally depositing that to your bank account. Please leave a comment here if this would be helpful for you as I'm not sure how much demand we have for it yet and I'm currently prioritizing other guides.
In the meantime you might be interested in this technology, maybe you want to learn more and become invested in the tech that has made this all possible!
There are many ways to invest in cryptocurrency, for this guide lets focus on Bricks and the Honey token which has made all of this possible.
You can earn more xDai and xBricks from other user's trading fees by adding them to the pool in the "Pool" tab on Honeyswap. After adding the amounts of each token click the green "Supply" button and confirm it in Metamask. You can see the value of your part of the pool by copying your Eth address from Metamask and pasting it in the address field at the top of this link https://info.honeyswap.org/accounts the field should say 0x.. in gray.
You can also buy some Honey, the token that powers Honeyswap, by swapping some xDai to HNY. Always make sure to keep at least 1 penny of xDai in your Metamask wallet to make sure you can cover transaction fees.
Honey is a token managed by a decentralized organization known as 1Hive. Anyone can be rewarded in Honey tokens for contributing to the project and sharing your contributions in discord, more info can be found at their website here https://about.1hive.org/ as well as the discord here https://discord.gg/GK98Ts
Honey is also being given out to "Liquidity Providers" (anyone who has added supply in the pool tab) for specific pairs that have been chosen by the 1Hive community. You can vote with your Honey tokens here https://1hive.org/#/ to show that you want HNY rewards for the xBrick xDai pool. Voting does not spend your HNY, it is just a way for the community to make decisions by voting weighted by your investment in HNY. Currently there is a proposal on page 2 that you might want to support which if passed will reward LP's (Liquidity Providers) of the xBrick xDai pair.

Congratulations! You are now a part of the cryptocurrency industry!
It is a lengthy guide, not something just anyone could do. Take a moment to feel good about making it this far! Many more guides will follow, the first of which will be the follow up where we detail the process of turning your xDai stablecoin into real USD in your bank account.
Be aware that the Bricks token is currently in testnet (the reason this guide is so long and complicated) and if you hold any bricks as xBricks on the xDai network you will need to keep an eye on this sub to see what you need to do when mainnet bricks are released. Most likely there will be a swap where you can switch your testnet Bricks into mainnet ones. All relevant information will be posted here so check in every day or so if you decide to provide liquidity for xBricks or hold them on the xDai network.
Subscribe to this subreddit and watch out for the follow up and future guides!
Please let me know what parts of the guide were the hardest and how it could be improved.

Minter Network Submission to The Reddit Scaling Bake-Off

Minter Network Submission to The Reddit Scaling Bake-Off

Minter Community's Open Letter to Reddit
Deaall,
We were thrilled to find out Reddit was going to use distributed ledger technology for driving user engagement, interaction, and loyalty. The front page of the Internet switching to Web 3.0 is something you don’t see every day: fifteen years into existence, you’re once again on the cutting edge of innovation.
“There are plenty of awesome projects that we don’t know about yet,” reads the text you put up recently. “Most existing scaling solutions focus on the exchange use case.” What we would like to offer here in this letter is an alternative: although Minter is separate from Ethereum, the project’s top priority is enabling brands — small, medium, and large alike — to implement blockchain-powered incentive and reward mechanisms into their operation.
Every facet of our network is tailored to this very need:
  • The transaction is finalized in five seconds
  • The fee never exceeds one cent
  • The scalability is up to 180 million daily transactions
  • Any community (think of subreddits) can issue their own coin in just 60 seconds, which can be then swapped not only for one another, but also for items such as iTunes gift cards, XBOX subscriptions, or any of the remaining 18,000 options — proving Minter provides a global solution aimed to achieve the goal you’ve set
  • Easy-to-use, user-centric wallets are available across all platforms
  • Our blockchain — as well as the vast majority of services built atop it — is open-source, and the documentation is detailed
Demo
100 transactions within 4.72 seconds - this block in the mainnet
100*(60/4.72)*60*24 = 1 830 508 transactions / day 
The price of 1.8ml transactions is 9244 BIP tokens or $75 with the current BIP price (reference)
Point claims, transfers, point burning, subscriptions can be handled by blockchain utilizing transaction payload feature.
Scaling
Currently, the blockchain has an ability to proceed 10 000 transactions per block, it means that Minter is scalable up to 183 050 800 daily transactions, if necessary.
Decentralization and Security
In Minter, we implemented the Delegated Proof of Stake (dPoS) Consensus Protocol. Minter Blockchain utilizes:
Tendermint Consensus Engine 
dPoS is the fastest, most efficient, most decentralized, and most flexible consensus model available. dPoS leverages the power of stakeholder approval voting to resolve consensus issues in a fair and democratic way.
Minter blockchain now has 58 independent validators producing 1 block per 5 sec.
Usability
If Reddit would use Minter as their blockchain for Community points then all Redditors:
- would not have problems with everyday coin operations, as Minter has well developed user-centric wallet apps for main platforms, iOS, Android, Web. Taste yourself!
- would have their transactions processed within 5 seconds. Is it a reasonable amount of time? We think it is much more than that, it is pretty awesome.
- would never pay more than one Cent per transaction.
- would easily see the whole transaction history in the app or via blockchain export.
Issue subreddit coins in just 60 seconds, swap not only for one another, but also for items such as iTunes gift cards, XBOX subscriptions, or any of the remaining 18,000 options.
Interoperability
Minter team has developed a comprehensive toolset for third-party developers, which includes the Console, SDK, and API for advanced integration. Our blockchain — as well as the vast majority of services built atop it — is open-source.
Some numbers
  • May 15, 2019 - mainnet launch
  • 1,557 - active coins
  • Over 9ml - transactions
  • Over 7,6ml - blocks
  • 4.63 - avg. seconds per block
  • 58 - blockchain validators and growing
  • Over 100 000 - BIP Wallet downloads
Green light
All we ask for is a green light to integrate any of the Reddit communities into our platform, seeing hundreds of millions of transactions in branded coins each and every day. One week is the time we need to make it work.
We would like to take this moment to thank the entire Reddit team for striving to make the Internet a better place. And if you are interested in the proposition we outlined above, please don’t hesitate to contact Mikhail for further communication.
Also, please check our article: Blockchain Reward System: Reddit Case Study
Best regards,
Minter community
