**BiblePay Mining History**

July 23rd 2017: 
- POW (Proof of Work) [Heat Mining] at launch {called POBH (Proof of BibleHash)}

February 2018:
- PODC (Proof of Distributed Computing) [Cancer Research Mining] added

February 2019:
- POG (Proof of Giving) [Daily Tithing/Donation Mining?] added
- PODC got voted on by masternodes for removal

March 15 2019:
- POG removed
- PODC removed

Note: it all reverted back to just POW while Rob works on updating to Dash Evolution, after which I believe POG will be added back in

New BiblePay Explorer

The proposal to fund a new BiblePay Explorer is now live.

https://chainz.cryptoid.info/bbp/

Due to a misunderstanding with minimums (they wanted at least 6 months), the ad version of the explorer is running. My apologies if any ads being displayed are promoting non-Christian values.

Anyone can contribute BTC to fund help continue the Explorer.

This run much faster than the current explorer and offers many analytics that the Iquudus Explorer.

"Biblepay-Evolution is ready for testing in TestNet:

More information on GSC's:
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Generic_Smart_Contracts

Roadmap:
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Roadmap

We could use at least 20 testers in testnet to test ABNs, GSCs, Deterministic Sancs, and we will also eventually need to test Evo in testnet against prod (meaning we need a few of us to sacrifice some capital and temporarily create DIP3 Sancs for prod in testnet for a couple months to ensure we are prod ready)."

Question:  What is the Generic Smart Contract for?
Answer:  The GSC will allow BiblePay to issue one generic superblock per day, containing the daily mining reward amount (equiv. to PODC currently) as a smart contract.
We will move our "campaigns", and "reward points" to a new design system inside Sanctuaries, and Sancs will assess the point levels per BBP-user and assign points to the campaign(s).  

In this way we can vote on GSC changes in the future (without affecting our consensus rules).
We can also create nice new campaigns, such as our Christian Economy features later, (for small % of the daily rewards) etc.
The users/miners who meet the conditions of the GSC are rewarded BBP in exchange for Points rewarded in the campaigns.  
This system will replace the current POG reward system, so that we may be more extensible in the future.
It will also allow us to honor Dash's codebase/security model more closely as they have releases, and our devs will merge these changes in, making us a more stable/reliable community.

At this point, we will be known as a true Dash follower, but with our own segregated features that do not break compatibility.
The GSC will also open up more exciting possibilities - such as allowing us to create Orphan contracts for people who want to help us decentralize Compassion (later in the roadmap).

I'll explain all this in detail in the first wiki version.

BiblePay is updating its code to base it on DASH 0.13:

Rough BiblePay Evolution Timeline


March 30, 2019 :  Release BiblePay-Evolution to Testnet - this allows us to test non-deterministic sanctuaries, send BBP, receive BBP, test proposals and payouts in TestNet (and we will ask people to test this against Prod to ensure Evo runs side-by-side our old nodes)
During this phase, Rob will work on a wiki page outlining the new Generic Smart Contract.  This will contain the details of the GSC reward system, campaigns, votable rules and reward points.

Rob will also work on v1.0 of the Generic Smart Contract while our users are testing Evo without POG.

April 7th, 2019:  Devs will release the GSC to testnet and ask that we test both sancs and core clients.  Test deterministic sanctuaries.

... Fix bugs and re-release Evo patches ...

April 30th, 2019:  Go live with Evolution - network wide



We will try our hardest to make this deadline.  I will notify everyone as soon as TestNet is ready.  We will not have time to release the Wiki until we start testing Evo, as we are working full time on this project.

NOTE:  If the PODC retirement vote passes, PODC will be retired at block 107,000 and POG will pay approx 10* more at that time.

@everyone poll: are you on the correct BiblePay blockchain (same as explorer.biblepay.org) and using version 1.1.9.8? To vote, please thumbs up or thumbs down as reaction.
