So after more than 2 days to bring my “BitcoinZ TxtZ SMS server” up and working , I give you the easy way to do it in less than 2-4 hours (depending on your internet speed and IT knowledge) with the following draft guideline: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TSKXgZ5QhVjq8XR6-w1u1j2l2X-BUw3z/view?usp=sharing. Feel free to update and share it (any feedback welcome).
@renuzit: It’s a great work that you done here ! It will be a pleasure for me to work with you on this project. Let it’s born again !
I also need this project because in 3 weeks (between 18 sept. and 7 oct.) I have to travel in Congo Brazzaville and I plan to present this easy way to transfer “money” with a “old” phone like a Nokia 3210. This topic as also serval proposes:
- Technical discussion
- Future TxtZ server (in production) usage and update
- Marketing material for Txtz & BTCZ
- Financial cost support
MY ACTUAL TEST & DEMO SERVER
You can use this Txtz service until (minimum) end of October. I installed the wohle staff on one of my miner and the uptime should by 95%. I will support the cost of the Twilio account for this periode, so please don’t spam this number. But I will be happy if some of you try it and give me a feedback
The usable (configured) TxtZ numbers are:
- +41 79 807 38 10 …WORKING (from Switzerland)…
- Update: Removed US number.
Mini usage guide:
To create a new wallet & configure your phone, send a SMS with “START” at one of the number. You will receive back a confirmation. In the data base, your phone number will be linked to a new generated BTCZ address so that other person will be able to use the phone number instead of the address.
Send a message with “RECEIVE” to get your public founding address of your SMS wallet.
To send found, use the command “SEND”. Exemple: SEND 10 BTCZ-address | SEND 10 Phone-number . If you use the phone number instead of the BTCZ address, the phone number need to be registred (with the START command) before.
To get the address balance, send “BALANCE”.
The created wallet are stored on one of my miner machine, so I give no garanties of security. IT’S A TEST & DEMO SERVER ONLY, also use small amount. I support the project, so if you have to lose some coin by misusing or related bug, say to you self: it’s for the technology go ahead. Sending a SMS can have a cost for you depending on your operator.
A LOT OF QUESTION ?
I also too
This POC (and this topic) is to accelerate the development around features like the TxtZ project. And also because we have Everyone to prospect any possibilities in other country’s to (at minimum) have more visibility around BTCZ. So wich me good look in a couple of weeks! I’m pretty sure that some people in Congo will begin to adopte this coin and also hope that I can give you a good feedback in october at my return.
And here are my questions and awaitings:
Crazy but necessary: As / if we plan to store locally, in a couple of servers, the person’s wallet and phone number informations in a data base, is that not lowering DECENTRALIZATION and security of the stored coin ? … all SMS are loged by every service, and a database/server can be hacked …
Could it possible to begin to thing about a possibility to store the sensible infos in the blockchain (something like smart contract in the Ethereum Virtual Machine) instead into a DB? I mention also the “Game Development” in yellow on the website should begin… It will be very nice to store the infos decentralized and securely.
I’m open for any proposition about a cost support for a project like this. So if we mount some secure TxtZ servers, how can we, or the final customer (SMS wallet users), support the cost of the SMS service (in this case Twilio) and the servers location ?
Any ideas how the users could on easy way exchange (or buy/sold) BTCZ without internet ? … telephony credit kiosk, working with a existing local “money trensfer service”, telephony operators,…
Someone else, excepted renuzit , as already build up this project ? Is any others TxtZ servers actually running ?
I search some quality BitcoinZ Presentation. I will do some translation in french… I open for any proposition if it can help others.
And for the end of my post, again THANKS to @renuzit for this project !!! I really Like playing with it, and I hope that’s only de beginning ! Is there any opposition to I writing a post on Linkedin about Txtz?
… writing tips and corrections are welcome…
