[01:07] <stellar-slack> https://xrptalk.org/topic/6448-judge-orrick-bitstamp-is-temporarily-enjoined-from-transferring-disputed-funds-to-stellar/
[01:13] <stellar-slack> one half of auction STR was frozen by bitstamp, and the other half was frozen by haste.
[01:15] <stellar-slack> it may be tough time to SDF now.
[01:25] <stellar-slack> welcome kapziel @thsigit and @mason! What brings you to Slack?
[01:26] <stellar-slack> @eva: an invite to my mailbox :simple_smile:
[01:27] <stellar-slack> a question, I've joined stellar little while ago but haven't learn much about it
[01:27] <stellar-slack> oh great!
[01:27] <stellar-slack> sure, ask away
[01:27] <stellar-slack> surely I've skim through the docs etc
[01:28] <stellar-slack> so probably a constructive question, is there something like stellar marketplace? where people exchange stellar for services etc ....
[01:28] <stellar-slack> or the other way around
[01:30] <stellar-slack> not exactly (yet, anyway). The ecosystem is still fairly young. However, you can see a couple of services who take STR as payment here: https://www.stellar.org/community/contributions/
[01:31] <stellar-slack> there's also a free plugin that lets wordpress stores accept STR, so anyone who wants to can be an STR service provider :simple_smile: https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-stellar/
[01:32] <stellar-slack> ok, this will be great to start with, thanks!
[01:32] <stellar-slack> sure thing!
[01:32] <stellar-slack> if you happen to be in the San Francisco area, you can use STR to buy wine. https://winelandia.com/
[01:32] <stellar-slack> (not affiliated with SDF, obviously)
[01:33] <stellar-slack> awesome! actually the idea of stellar sounded great to me that's why I am joining
[01:33] <stellar-slack> really glad to hear it. is there anything in particular that makes you interested?
[01:34] <stellar-slack> like something that you'd like to see Stellar used for in your own life, for example?
[01:34] <stellar-slack> that will be interesting, but for now the idea has caught me
[01:35] <stellar-slack> likewise this one https://www.community-exchange.org/ (no I am not affiliated to this, but the idea has caught me as well)
[01:36] <stellar-slack> very cool
[01:36] <stellar-slack> somewhat related: http://timebanks.org/
[01:36] <stellar-slack> I mean people are stuck to conventional money system so much that they can't exchange even if they have things to exchange, actually
[01:36] <stellar-slack> yeah, it's really interesting
[01:37] <stellar-slack> thanks for the link, I think I 've found similar ideas in the past but stellar is the first for me to join, so I'll keep on observing
[01:37] <stellar-slack> and thanks for your time and efforts :simple_smile:
[01:37] <stellar-slack> you and the whole team
[01:38] <stellar-slack> Really glad to hear that, and welcome aboard :rocket:
[01:39] <stellar-slack> thanks!
[01:39] <stellar-slack> it's really great to hear from other people who share the same vision :simple_smile:
[01:40] <stellar-slack> :simple_smile:
[02:48] <stellar-slack> @eva: keen to see/hear more about stellar, thought jumping on the slack group would be good way to do that.
[02:48] <stellar-slack> @kapziel: definitely the right place! what about Stellar caught your attention?
[02:52] <stellar-slack> @eva certainly the decentralised nature of it, as well as the abilities that it has around converting currencies, etc. Largely interested in how you’re building a community around stellar, the adoption process, product integrations. I admire the mission you have around financial literacy and access on a global scale.
[02:53] <stellar-slack> @kapziel: cool! Exactly what we're interested in, too. It really has to be tied to community and education. You can have the best tech in the world, but if nobody understands it it can't help anyone.
[02:55] <stellar-slack> @eva: for sure! you’ve got some cool processes around community on-boarding, slack is a great platform for community management as long as there’s someone to prod and ask questions (such as yourself!).
[02:56] <stellar-slack> glad you think so - the slack is relatively new, but I'm really loving it so far. It feels more connected, somehow. I know it's essentially the same concept as IRC but something about Slack makes for a better experience. Maybe all the amazing emoji :wink:
[02:57] <stellar-slack> haha possibly
[02:57] <stellar-slack> you should enable the giphy integration, makes for great comms.
[02:57] <stellar-slack> we have a couple of other community spaces, including a Facebook group and an in-person meetup, but Slack is great for having real-time conversations
[02:57] <stellar-slack> oh god giphy
[02:58] <stellar-slack> for sure, and helps with the distributed nature of the community
[02:58] <stellar-slack> it always manages to pick the worst one
[02:58] <stellar-slack> hahhaha, that’s part of the fun
[02:58] <stellar-slack> yeah, exactly
[02:58] <stellar-slack> and people can create channels for their individual communities
[03:00] <stellar-slack> indeed, which allows for organic community growth. (wow that sounded buzz-wordy)
[03:00] <stellar-slack> /giphy let's try it
[03:00] <stellar-slack> giphy: http://giphy.com/gifs/funny-meme-xL9xyhczap4cg
[03:01] <stellar-slack> haha all the feels
[03:01] <stellar-slack> @kapziel: heh, now you're speaking my language
[03:01] <stellar-slack> much better!
[03:01] <stellar-slack> but yeah, basically - ultimately, I'd call this community a "success" when I - and SDF - are no longer at the center
[03:02] <stellar-slack> totally agree with that one
[03:02] <stellar-slack> it kinda makes sense to have a decentralized community when that's what we're building :stuck_out_tongue:
[03:02] <stellar-slack> how ironic :stuck_out_tongue:
[03:02] <stellar-slack> ha
[03:02] <stellar-slack> /giphy isn't it ironic
[03:02] <stellar-slack> giphy: http://giphy.com/gifs/absurdnoise-absurdnoise-80s-movies-beetlejuice-R4smHOjm9Uloc
[03:02] <stellar-slack> oh my god
[03:03] <stellar-slack> I'm so sorry
[03:03] <stellar-slack> see this is why giphy is the worst
[03:03] <stellar-slack> l was sure it would pull alanis morisette
[03:03] <stellar-slack> hahhahaha, no no, that was awesome :stuck_out_tongue:
[03:03] <stellar-slack> I just. Why giphy. WHY
[03:04] <stellar-slack> haha, yeah i generally have the same luck
[03:04] <stellar-slack> /giphy just my luck
[03:04] <stellar-slack> giphy: http://giphy.com/gifs/ouat-my-bby-wool-grill-jmo-rS3P2zMTJmNPy
[03:05] <stellar-slack> aww I loved that show
[03:05] <stellar-slack> hahaha, so misc
[03:05] <stellar-slack> I just think it's fascinating that gifs and emojis have become a language of sorts
[03:05] <stellar-slack> I have a theory that it's because text on the internet is so stripped of context and tone that we need images, memes, gifs, emoticons to color it
[03:06] <stellar-slack> should be a branch of linguistics
[03:06] <stellar-slack> yes!
[03:06] <stellar-slack> I would definitely teach that course
[03:06] <stellar-slack> I’ll subscribe to that
[03:06] <stellar-slack> nice
[03:06] <stellar-slack> wonder how loose Coursera's curriculum criteria are
[03:07] <stellar-slack> @vanessa's probably offline right now, but I'm sure she's be a co-professor :simple_smile:
[03:07] <stellar-slack> or at least a guest lecturer
[03:07] <stellar-slack> haha, sounds legit. webinar?
[03:08] <stellar-slack> any plan to add the slack to the community page on the site?
[03:08] <stellar-slack> https://www.stellar.org/community/
[03:08] <stellar-slack> yus. And yes, it's on my shortlist of updates for the page
[03:08] <stellar-slack> haha sweet
[03:09] <stellar-slack> it honestly isn't the highest of priorities at the moment, given that we're working on the network switch (https://www.stellar.org/blog/stellar-consensus-protocol-proof-code/) but yes, it will be front n center
[03:12] <stellar-slack> when does the switch happen?
[03:13] <stellar-slack> probably a silly question - ready when it’s ready? :simple_smile:
[10:06] <stellar-slack> @kapziel: the switch is scheduled to be in Q3. You may find the milestones here: https://github.com/stellar/stellar-core/milestones

[10:25] <stellar-slack> Thanks @zealord
[10:25] <stellar-slack> :-)
[11:27] <stellar-slack> also, im speaking at an event today by http://qz.com|qz.com called The Next Billion. the whole event is being livestreamed (although i think its lunch time right now). http://qz.com/407226/were-live-at-the-next-billion-london-quartzs-forum-on-the-mobile-world/
[11:28] <stellar-slack> oh, not lunchtime yet
[11:29] <stellar-slack> thanks for updating, Joyce. :thumbsup:
[11:30] <stellar-slack> no worries - some really interesting topics here today:)
[11:41] <stellar-slack> nice
[17:34] <stellar-slack> welcome @pavel_t @shiroginne @thzinc @greenparhelia @andre and @lmartinho :simple_smile:
[17:37] <stellar-slack> We’ve temporarily paused our educational giveaway in preparation for a new one—in the works! https://stellarorg.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/205113595
[17:57] <stellar-slack> thanks for the welcome @eva
[17:58] <stellar-slack> sure @andre :simple_smile: What brings you to Slack (and Stellar)?
[17:58] <stellar-slack> hey @l3t.nguyen and @rkhyd
[18:00] <stellar-slack> :((
[18:00] <stellar-slack> bonus stop
[18:02] <stellar-slack> why?
[18:04] <stellar-slack> chào eva!
[18:04] <stellar-slack> tại sao phải tạm dừng hệ thống?
[18:04] <stellar-slack> Hi @eva I'm interested in issues giveway
[18:04] <stellar-slack> hello eva!
[18:04] <stellar-slack> why should pause the system?
[18:06] <stellar-slack> hello eva!
[18:06] <stellar-slack> why should pause the system?
[18:08] <stellar-slack> the current system is paused so that we can focus on the new educational giveaway we're building
[18:08] <stellar-slack> hello
[18:09] <stellar-slack> stellar will also be distributed via facebook account?
[18:09] <stellar-slack> Could there be a bonus when you create a new account
[18:09] <stellar-slack> hi @erari :simple_smile:
[18:10] <stellar-slack> We have not released the details of the new giveaway program, but will announce them publicly when we have 'em :simple_smile:
[18:11] <stellar-slack> yes thank you so much
[18:11] <stellar-slack> hope that we will get the earliest notice
[18:11] <stellar-slack> I have one account created from one period of time, from this new program if I can get some more?
[18:11] <stellar-slack> It will be announced in Slack, on our Twitter, etc. so you'll definitely hear about it :simple_smile:
[18:13] <stellar-slack> never to complete system upgrades so eva
[18:13] <stellar-slack> @l3t.nguyen: the giveaway is meant to be only one per person. Claiming the reward more than once is considered to be abuse of the giveaway
[18:15] <stellar-slack> @eva: how long giveaway back to work?or never giveaway?
[18:16] <stellar-slack> like erari
[18:16] <stellar-slack> we don't have a date for the new system launch yet - when we do, we'll announce it
[18:19] <stellar-slack> @eva: please give us the certainty that we do not expect much
[18:20] <stellar-slack> I'm not sure what you're asking, erari
[18:22] <stellar-slack> @please give us certainty giveaway program would be stopped forever or not
[18:22] <stellar-slack> @eva: please give us certainty giveaway program would be stopped forever or not
[18:22] <stellar-slack> It will not be stopped forever. There will be a new, redesigned educational system. The date is not set yet, nor is the design finalized.
[18:23] <stellar-slack> it will also be distributed via facebook account instead?
[18:23] <stellar-slack> ooo....oke....what needed long time for a launch?
[18:24] <stellar-slack> with bar when pages change sociall str?
[18:25] <stellar-slack> doing so may affect the amount of str was released or not
[18:25] <stellar-slack> @lequyenk54: see my previous message here https://stellar-public.slack.com/archives/general/p1432059012000482
[18:26] <stellar-slack> @erari, @anhpt3 and @rooot97 I'm not sure what you're asking
[18:26] <stellar-slack> Thank eva :simple_smile:
[18:26] <stellar-slack> sure :simple_smile:
[18:26] <stellar-slack> signing up the world is a hard process, and it takes adjustment sometimes :simple_smile:
[18:34] <stellar-slack> :joy:
[18:36] <stellar-slack> this is pretty great @joyce https://twitter.com/polexa/status/599573609645010944
[18:46] <stellar-slack> Hi eva, How long we need waiting to stellar open again ?
[18:47] <stellar-slack> @rinkimi: please see my prior comment: https://stellar-public.slack.com/archives/general/p1432059758000498
[22:26] <stellar-slack> Vanessa is giving a really interesting talk today on "How an Educator Came to :heart: Crypto" https://speakerdeck.com/mozzadrella/how-an-educator-came-to-3-crypto
[22:26] <stellar-slack> Always cool to see "unexpected" folks getting into digital currency, and discovering how that "ah-ha!" moment happened for them.
[22:39] <stellar-slack> When a new giveaway program ??
[22:39] <stellar-slack> :v
[22:40] <stellar-slack> @aryaputra: Please see eva’s previous comment: https://stellar-public.slack.com/archives/general/p1432059758000498
[22:44] <stellar-slack> if you do not have a new program why the long-discontinued?
[22:45] <stellar-slack> ?
[22:46] <stellar-slack> :joy_cat:
[22:48] <stellar-slack> Why ????
[22:48] <stellar-slack> omg
[22:49] <stellar-slack> @aryaputra: looks like you've had a wallet since October. Unless you're trying to claim the giveaway multiple times, it doesn't seem like it would affect you.
[22:49] <stellar-slack> we do not provide any support for folks who we believe to be abusing the giveaway.
[22:51] <stellar-slack> in terms of why we're pausing, we're just focused on the road ahead :simple_smile:
[22:53] <stellar-slack> :cry: one facebook account one giveaway
[22:53] <stellar-slack> what misused?
[22:53] <stellar-slack> How to?
[22:54] <stellar-slack> We have a lot of technical work ahead of us so we are going to be focusing all our efforts on the new build.
[22:56] <stellar-slack> Ohh .. Thanks You So Much ...
[22:56] <stellar-slack> You are welcome.
[22:59] <stellar-slack> Tapi tolong beri kami kepastian ??
[22:59] <stellar-slack> bulan depan atau minggu depan ?
[23:00] <stellar-slack> We are not sure yet but will update as soon as we have more info:)
[23:02] <stellar-slack> Do you have any idea yet?
[23:03] <stellar-slack> eva how about giveaway 9$ for the old user ?
[23:05] <stellar-slack> im sure but better restore the previous giveaway system
[23:06] <stellar-slack> I think the system of previously good giveaway
[23:06] <stellar-slack> Facebook account and email ..
[23:07] <stellar-slack> Thanks for your input but we have already made our decision. You can stay tuned for further updates.
[23:07] <stellar-slack> im user from august , but until now bonus 9$ from sign up stellar has promised not yet be given
[23:29] <stellar-slack> @andikaqren: Joyce addressed this question in a post from August - "The remaining stellars will be calculated and granted when you receive an invite code or complete future educational programs." https://stellartalk.org/topic/1859-waitlist-groups/
