In our post "Advocate for an underdog and get 1000 Honest Cash Tokens." we asked Honest members to be be an advocate for an underdog and write a post on Honest on any topic surrounding; honesty, censorship or discrimination. In return, we are sending 1000 HCT tokens. Honest token is a proof of engagement on honest_cash, exclusively for Honest members. It will be given to creators, thinkers and creatives. The more Honesty you have, the wider audience you can reach.

Background: Derivation paths determine how the address / private keys for your wallet are derived from the mnemonic. Mnemonic is called interchangeably also "seed", "recovery phrase", or "12 words phrase". The main reason why the keys from one wallet cannot be imported to other is because of the difference in the derivation path. Most used derivation paths: m/44'/0'/0': used by BitcoinCom and Honest, same with BTC m/44'/145'/0': used by Electron Cash, memo, set as standard in the BIP44 spec The discussion was initiated because I was looking for ways for Honest wallets to be compatible with both the Badger and BitcoinCom (from the same company). My personal opinion: Just to make an analogy to the browsers. Javascript is broken. Every low-level library needs to detect browser versions and have separate implementations for different ones based on its usage. It's crucial if you want to grow user base. I applaud the standards, but we will not change the fact that there are millions of users using other HD paths due to historical reasons. Making business decision based of their engineering elegancy and not usage numbers hurts ecosystem growth. While we should have a standard, it's very important to put user experience first. 1 mnemonic = 1 wallet. And let the wallet software handle the detection which derivation path should be used. "5 if statements". What do you think?
Many members of the Honest community have requested over the past weeks the support for markdown formatting. Markdown is often used for writing messages in online discussion forums and by developers in creating documentation for software projects. It is is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax. Its design allows it to be converted to many output formats, but the original tool by the same name only supports HTML. At first, I was personally against markdown as I was worried about users that would not know how to use it and that it would make the Honest experience worse. I researched and it turns out that over 50% of Honest users know Markdown! It made me to think about it again. We decided finally to implemented the support for markdown. It was clear at the same time that we must offer an easy way to transition for users without any markdown experience. We forked StackEdit and created our own editor library - honest-editor-js. The library has been open-sourced and is already available on npm for other developers to use. 150 downloads since it has been published! We also created a demo for everyone to see, independently from Honest.Cash. Check out the demo at: editor.honest.cash. We are currently still integrating it to Honest and we expect it to go live in just few days. Here are some of the highlighted features: WYSIWYG controls Honest Editor provides very handy formatting buttons and shortcuts, the WYSIWYG-style same as at Stack Overflow. Rich Markdown editor Markdown syntax highlighting is unique. The refined text formatting of the editor helps you visualize the final rendering of your content. It was an absolute must for the users that are new to markdown. Live preview with Scroll Sync Honest's Scroll Sync feature accurately binds the scrollbars of the editor panel and the preview panel to ensure that you always keep an eye on the output while writing. Offline functionality Even when you travel, Honest is still accessible saving your content locally in your browser and letting you write offline just like any desktop application. You have no excuse now not to post! Help box A step by step intro to Honest editor and its features. It is available the first time you open the editor to guide you how to use it. Support for Youtube and Vimeo videos Once published, you will be able to embed Youtube and Vimeo videos. It has been requested by many of you! Foundation for many exciting features We've completely rewritten the editor. We used the newest cutting edge technologies such as VueJS, IndexDB, PWAs, Angular 7 and service workers to build it up. This gives us a foundation for easy support for the following features in the future: - Support for programming language highlighting - LaTeX mathematical expressions - UML diagrams - Emojis - Progressive web app for Honest desktop application Feedback time As always, I ask you few days before the release about your feedback. Let me know what you think. Would you like to change or add something? Is there a must-have feature that we don't have yet? BTW. did you like our new login page? :)
On Honest, each upvote costs a fraction of a bitcoin. When you upvote, this amount is distributed to earlier voters and the author of the post. If many people vote on the same content after you, you profit. Every transaction happens peer-to-peer without any intermediary. It means that the users receive the bitcoin as soon as the upvote is made. Read more about this feature here: https://honest.cash/honest_cash/new-on-honest-cash-get-paid-for-upvoting-and-promoting-good-content-early-on-127. We display upvotes and the corresponding transactions under every post. For some users it may seem a little bit hard to explore these transactions and correctly interpret them. Let's look into one of these transactions. Every transactions consists of inputs and outputs: What are inputs? It is best to understand it through an anology. If you go to a restaurant and pay cash, you give the cashier few coins and notes that are equal or bigger than the invoice amount. If the amount is bigger than that, the cashier gives you back some change. The inputs in every bitcoin transactions are like these coins and notes that you would normally use at a restaurant. You have received them previously from other transactions and they are waiting in your wallet to be spent. Let's look at an example transaction: I transfer here $1.27 USD to another address. I combine and send all the small coins (inputs) that I received as tips and rewards from Honest upvotes. The receiver gets one coin in value of $1.27. What are outputs? Imagine now that you are the cashier. You get all the small coins and you go to a nearby shop to swap it for a $100 note. You have a new unspent note in your wallet. In the bitcoin world, you would call this one an Unspent Transaction Output, or shortly UTXO. UTXO are the new coins that you can use to pay for your next dinner. Next, you might have seen that there are some independent websites displaying how much transactions have been made on Honest. How is it possible? Do we somehow mark the coins that are send over Honest? Well, yes. Just like you could simply write something on physical notes, you can also write it on the coins that you send. We add some text to every transaction with the capital letter "H" and the post ID that is upvoted. It is listed in the explorers as the OP_RETURN data. You can read more about it here. Other services like trends.cash and honest.whotipped.it crawl and analyze the transactions and can create some nice usage graphs based on it! How can we make it easier for new users, especially those that are new to crypto, to use Honest?
this is bold this is normal text this is a link this should be header. sorry for the email notfications guys…  // this should be a code block const honest = new Medium({ enableRewards: true, uncensorable: true, cryptocurrency: "bch" }); Here is a caption in italian mode under an image What's coming next? (next should be a list) - editor supporting markdown - support for embeding for external content like youtube videos
One of the reasons I fell in love with physics was a famous physicist of the 20th century - Richard Feynman. I read through his biography and lectures when I was in high school and it gave me this amazing feeling as though I can really understand the rules behind the universe and it inspired me to learn more - to study the subject. I've seen a question on Quora "What does it feel like to see a ...
I have just spent 9 days in Istanbul. Everywhere I walked, there were cats. While the cats are not adopted formally, they are taken care of by no one and everyone, a giant community network of cat caring. I compiled the best shots of cats and put them here on Honest. Enjoy! 1. View on Sea of Marmara from the Asian side of Istanbul 2. View on Fenerbahçe located on the Asian side at the shore...

I got inspired to write this post during a talk with Chris Troutner about how to include Bitbox into a browser application. What's BITBOX? BITBOX is a fully featured javascript framework that you can use for building Bitcoin applications. You don't need to run your own bitcoin node which speeds up the development workflow significantly. Honest integrates Bitbox into the simple-bitcoin-wallet. ...
I'm a quite experienced software engineer but I am relatively new to blockchain technology. I consulted companies about web technologies, build digital products, managed and trained developer teams. Personally, I see bitcoin space as a very hard space to enter from a technical point of view. It's not like starting to build a website or write a smart contract (not yet). It makes me wonder because...

Cross-posted from Medium. The extended version is exclusively available on honest.cash. I have attended fours Hackathons so far. HackZurich 2017, InsurHack 2017, TechCrunch Berlin Disrupt 2017 and BCH Amsterdam Devcon 2018. In all of them, I had great experiences, met inspiring people and learned many new things. It would have been a success in its own, even if I had not won any prize. Winnin...
