Dlaczego warto używać Byteball?

Pozbawione ryzyka warunkowe inteligentne płatności

Byteball pozwala robić coś, czego nie potrafią tradycyjne waluty: warunkowe płatności.

Ustanawiasz warunek, kiedy odbiorca otrzyma pieniądze. Jeśli warunek nie zostanie spełniony, otrzymujesz zwrot pieniędzy.

Ubezpieczenia P2P

Zabezpieczenie przed negatywnymi zdarzeniami.

Kup ubezpieczenie od innych użytkowników, aby otrzymać płatność na wypadek negatywnych zdarzeń. Albo sprzedawaj ubezpieczenia dla zysku.

Ubezpieczenie to po prostu inteligentny kontrakt, który może zostać odblokowany przez ubezpieczonego — gdy wystąpi dane zdarzenie, albo przez ubezpieczyciela — jeśli dane zdarzenie nie wystąpi.

To insure against flight delay, find your counterpart in #p2p_insurance channel on our Slack, create a contract, and if your flight arrives late, chat with flight delays oracle to have it post the data about the delay, then unlock the contract.

Przewidywania rynków

Make money by correctly predicting future events.

Create a P2P smart contract that can be unlocked if a specific event occurs. Use it for betting on price movements, sports betting, and insurance.

Find your counterpart in #prediction_markets channel on our Slack and create a contract that can be unlocked by you or your peer depending on the results of a future game.

After the result is known, chat with sports oracle to have it post the data about the outcome, then unlock the contract.

Textcoins

Send cryptocurrency to email or via chat.

The sender just writes an email address where he would normally write a Byteball address. The recipient just clicks a link received in email or chat. If the recipient is not in Byteball yet, he will be prompted to install the wallet. On Android, the install is started automatically. Learn more.

Sovereign identity

Store your ID in your wallet, choose what to disclose and to whom.

Have your real identity verified and securely stored in your wallet. Jumio helps in ID verification. When you want to disclose your identity to a service provider, e.g. to participate in an ICO, you just pull it out of your wallet in a few clicks. Learn more.

P2P payments in chat

Chat and pay in the same app just by clicking links.

Chatboty

Talk to a bot like you would talk to a human.

Shop by chatting with a merchant's bot, pay in two clicks. Exchanges and other services are also easy to use in conversational interface.

Bot Store

Easily discover and add new chatbots via the built-in Bot Store.

Developers have instant access to all users by publishing their chatbot on the Bot Store. See the developer guide about building chatbots.

Untraceable currency: Blackbytes

Prywatność finansowa.

When you want complete privacy, pay in Blackbytes, a cash-like untraceable currency whose transactions are not visible on the public database, they are sent peer-to-peer instead.

Use built-in TOR switch straight from the wallet to increase your privacy even further.

Users help each other

Secure each other's transactions.

There is no central entity that stores and processes all the payments. Instead, transactions created by users are cryptographically linked to each other, and once you add your new transaction, other users start adding theirs on top of yours, and the number of other transactions that link to your transaction grows like snowball (that's why we call it Byteball).

Główne cechy

Atomową wymianę

When two parties sign a single unit that executes both legs of the exchange, the two transactions either happen simultaneously or don't happen at all. It is no longer necessary to trust any centralized exchanges.

Regulated assets

Regulated institutions can issue assets that are compatible with KYC/AML requirements. Every transfer of such asset is to be cosigned by the issuer, and if there is anything that contradicts the regulations, the issuer won't cosign.

Multi signature

For security, you can require that your funds be spendable only when several signatures are provided, e.g. from your laptop and from your phone. For shared control of funds, signatures from different people may be required.

On-chain oracles

When dealing with untrusted counterparties, you can lock the funds on an address that is spendable either by you or by the counterparty, depending on the events registered to the database by trusted data providers — oracles.

Niezmienny świat

Once stored in the Byteball database, the data can neither be revised nor removed.

Rozrachunek

After certain criteria are met, a new transaction becomes final. It cannot be revised even by a powerful attacker. No guesswork about the right number of confirmations, no 51% attacks.

Fair initial distribution

Free distribution for mass adoption.

Mass adoption requires wide distribution, that's why 99% of all bytes and blackbytes are to be distributed for free. Currently, we use several ways to distribute them:

In the past, we also distributed Bytes to BTC holders and existing holders of Bytes. Users used to link their BTC and Byteball addresses and were receiving new Bytes in proportion to their existing balances in BTC and Bytes. This distribution was split into several rounds. The first distribution round took place on Dec 25, 2016 when the network launched, over 70,000 BTC was linked, and 10% of the total supply of bytes and blackbytes was distributed. In the subsequent rounds, the total distributed supply reached 64.5%:

  • 2nd round on Feb 11, 2017: 121,763 BTC linked, 1.8% distributed;
  • 3rd round on Mar 12, 2017: 129,139 BTC linked, 2.0% distributed;
  • 4th round on Apr 11, 2017: 145,441 BTC linked, 2.3% distributed;
  • 5th round on May 10, 2017: 207,672 BTC linked, 2.9% distributed;
  • 6th round on Jun 9, 2017: 453,621 BTC linked, 6.6% distributed;
  • 7th round on Jul 9, 2017: 949,004 BTC linked, 11.0% distributed.
  • 8th round on Aug 7, 2017: 1,395,899 BTC linked, 16.0% distributed.
  • 9th round on Sep 6, 2017: 1,306,573 BTC linked, 5.7% distributed.
  • 10th round on Nov 4, 2017: 1,093,155 BTC linked, 6.1% distributed.

Completely new technology

Unbounded scalability, fast confirmations, no miners, no blocks, low fees.

Byteball data is stored and ordered using directed acyclic graph (DAG) rather than blockchain. This allows all users to secure each other's data by referencing earlier data units created by other users, and also removes scalability limits common for blockchains, such as blocksize issue.

Blockless design is simpler because there are no blocks, there are only transactions. Users just add their transactions to the end of the DAG themselves, they don't have to wait when miners create a new block and there is no guesswork whether miners will include your transaction in the block.

The consensus algorithm used to protect from double-spends is based on establishing a total order within the DAG. This is achieved by selecting a chain, called main chain, which gravitates towards units issued by commonly recognized reputable users — witnesses. See the white paper for details.

Testnet

Testnet wallet is also available if you are a developer or want to experience the features of Byteball without spending a penny.
