UBIC is a crypto-project that is meant to democratize currency creation minting new currency in favor of everyone, not only in favor of banks.
UBIC works like basic income on a blockchain, but can also be implemented by other projects for KYC-applications. UBIC will soon allow reliable pseudonymous voting (one person, one vote) and other applications as well that require a functionality to avoid sybil attacks.
Sybil attacks - people receiving multiple basic incomes at once - are harder on UBIC than elsewhere because you are required to proof your uniqueness with a Non-transferable proof of Signatur-Knowledge connected to your unique E-Passport.
Your identity is NOT revealed that way to other participants of the system.
The UBIC-Wallet is still in an early stage but does provide all basic functionalities a Wallet requires. You can send transactions, receive them and register a passport in order to get your UBIC cryptoUBI.
If you like the idea of the project you can support its development on github: github.com/rgex/UBIC-android-wallet & github.com/UBIC-repo

Run the server
Stop the server
Running a node
If you are using a firewall make sure that port 1334 is open or TCP connections. This can be ensured by running:
sudo ufw allow 1334/tcp
Also your log files might getting huge. You can delete them by running:
sudo rm -rf /var/ubic/LOGS/*.txt
Open the web interface
To open the web interface you have to open 127.0.0.1:6789/#yourApiKey in your browser.
You will find your api key in the
/!\ Warning: For security reasons the web interface can not be opened remotely by typing your server ip:6789/#yourApiKey. If you want to open the web interface of your server do a port forwarding over SSH, and forward the ports 6789 and 12303 to the ports 6789 and 12303 on your local machine.
Register a passport
To register a passport go to the "My UBI" tab and click "Register passport", then enter your passport number, date of birth and the date of expiry. Make sure your NFC reader is plugged and ready, put the passport on top of it. To help you on some readers a green light appears when it found a tag. Click "Register passport", if it doesnt work try again by turning your passport, opening it. If it still doesn't work open an issue on Github.
Note that to work your node should ideally be synced.
Command line interface
ubic web will display the URL for accessing the web interface.
Web interface: http://127.0.01:6789#839073d84f8ee9dbe98d02b3
ubic status will get your current node status.
Synced: true Blockchain height: 4114 Best block hash: 0b9751f604582ddb405e1dfa1cbf202ecbd0621b3b7f9d70ba21456675a017c8
ubic add-peer <ip address> will add a new node to your node list.
Adding peer succeeded
ubic peers will return the peers you are connected to.

UBIC was developed using CLion. If you want to work on the source code it is recommended that you use the same IDE.
