/! \ The use of currency Ğ1 implies the acceptance of its license, a copy of which is given below.
License Ğ1 - v0.2.5
:date: 2017-08-21 16:59 :modified: 2018-01-24 19:20
Money licensing and liability commitment.
Any certification operation of a new member of Ğ1 must first be accompanied by the transmission of this license of the currency Ğ1 whose certifier must ensure that it has been studied, understood and accepted by the person who will be certified.
Ğ1 occurs via a Universal Dividend (DU) for any human member, which is of the form:
- 1 DU per person per day
The amount of DU is identical each day until the next equinox, where the DU will then be reevaluated according to the formula:
- DU day (the following equinox) = DU
(equinox) + c² (M / N) (equinox) / (15778800 seconds)
With as parameters:
- c = 4.88% / equinox
- UD (0) = 10.00 Ğ1
And as variables:
- M the total monetary mass at the equinox
- N the number of members at the equinox
Web of Trust Ğ1 (WoT Ğ1)
Warning: Certifying is not just about making sure you've met the person, it's ensuring that the community Ğ1 knows the certified person well enough and Duplicate account made by a person certified by you, or other types of problems (disappearance ...), by cross-checking that will reveal the problem if necessary.
When you are a member of Ğ1 and you are about to certify a new account:
You are assured:
1°) The person who declares to manage this public key (new account) and to have personally checked with him that this is the public key is sufficiently well known (not only to know this person visually) that you are about to certify.
2a°) To meet her physically to make sure that it is this person you know who manages this public key.
2b°) Remotely verify the public person / key link by contacting the person via several different means of communication, such as social network + forum + mail + video conference + phone (acknowledge voice).
Because if you can hack an email account or a forum account, it will be much harder to imagine hacking four distinct means of communication, and mimic the appearance (video) as well as the voice of the person .
However, the 2 °) is preferable to 3 °, whereas the 1 °) is always indispensable in all cases.
3 °) To have verified with the person concerned that he has indeed generated his Duniter account revocation document, which will enable him, if necessary, to cancel his account (in case of account theft, ID, an incorrectly created account, etc.).
Abbreviated WoT rules:
Each member has a stock of 100 possible certifications, which can only be issued at the rate of 1 certification / 5 days.
Valid for 2 months, certification for a new member is definitively adopted only if the certified has at least 4 other certifications after these 2 months, otherwise the entry process will have to be relaunched.
To become a new member of WoT Ğ1 therefore 5 certifications must be obtained at a distance < 5 of 80% of the WoT sentinels.
A member of the TdC Ğ1 is sentinel when he has received and issued at least Y [N] certifications where N is the number of members of the TdC and Y [N] = ceiling N ^ (1/5). Examples:
- For 1024 < N ≤ 3125 we have Y [N] = 5
- For 7776 < N ≤ 16807 we have Y [N] = 7
- For 59049 < N ≤ 100 000 we have Y [N] = 10
Once the new member is part of the WoT Ğ1 his certifications remain valid for 2 years.
To remain a member, you must renew your agreement regularly with your private key (every 12 months) and make sure you have at least 5 certifications valid after 2 years.
Software Ğ1 and license Ğ1
The software Ğ1 allowing users to manage their use of Ğ1 must transmit this license with the software and all the technical parameters of the currency Ğ1 and TdC Ğ1 which are entered in block 0 of Ğ1.
For more details in the technical details it is possible to consult directly the code of Duniter which is a free software and also the data of the blockchain Ğ1 by retrieving it via a Duniter instance or node Ğ1.
More information on the Duniter Team website https://www.duniter.org
Once the license is received, read and accepted, the process to become a member of the Ğ1 WoT goes through the creation of an ID (your identifier / nicname) and a pair (private key / public key) [if possible in a secure way] (https://forum.duniter.org/t/recommendations-of-security-before-creating-your-account-g1/1819). The public key becomes an account number that can only be used by the person who owns the private key, which is constructed by another pair (passphrase / password) = private key, which must be carefully kept for oneself.
The most effective to achieve this is to use one of Duniter Ğ1 official clients:
- Silkaj https://silkaj.duniter.org/
- Sakia http://sakia-wallet.org/
- Cesium https://github.com/duniter/cesium
For security reasons it will be better to generate your key pair by being offline and it is advisable never to enter your member private key (which is the source of your Universal Dividend Ğ1) on a connected application or an external website (Cesium which appears in the form of web pages can perfectly be installed and used on your own PC, it is also natively embedded with the Duniter server for this purpose, thus offering a 100% client / server application).
Once you create your key pair, you must generate a revocation Duniter document, which ensures that you can cancel your account in the event of a future problem that you will need to keep in a safe place.
Then you generate a Duniter application document to become a member, which must be certified by people who know you well enough (see the license of currency Ğ1 in this regard) and who are already members of the Ğ1 WoT. It is therefore more efficient to ensure that at least 5 members of the Ğ1 WoT know you well enough and will thus agree to certify your public key before starting the registration process.
It will take 5 certifications to be registered in Ğ1 blockchain. However, due to time rules (1 signature per person every 5 days) and calculation (block calculations by the Duniter network Ğ1), this final operation may take some time (several days or even weeks depending on the case). If your operation is not validated after 2 months it will have to be restarted.
Note: Duniter allows you to generate as many non-member accounts as you want. A management tips is therefore to make small transfers on these accounts (or wallets), having their own private key, which will limit the risks of use to the quantity of money Ğ1 that will be there. You will be able to use this wallet on online applications you trust while limiting the risks associated with the connection.
Following your registration
Once the registration process started, you can follow its processing through 2 tools:
- g1-monit : visualize the registrating members waiting to be members
- WotWizard : previsions of the entering dates of each registration
The combination of these 2 tools is enough to know if your registration pack is complete and valid, as well as knowing the probable date of your joining in the web of trust of the currency.
Note that only complete registration packs are listed by WotWizard.
