A few questions about blockchain

Hello blocktech!
I have a few questions about the blockchain, but I am having trouble finding information that is more than a basic overview of the blockchain. For the sake of simplicity, I am going to be referring only to the Bitcoin chain for these questions, as different chains may use different solutions.
Does every miner download the entire chain?
Given the number of transactions, it seems that this would require a lot of memory, and would increase in this respect over time.
If every miner has a copy, where did they get it?
Since there is no central server, who provides a new user with the chain? Wouldn't it take a lot of bandwidth for some random miner to send the entire chain to a new user?
Once they have the chain, how do they get updates?
Once a new block is mined, how does a person who didn't mine it get the update? Is it sent one person at a time from peer to peer?
How does a miner access the pool of unconfirmed transactions?
Again, once someone makes a transaction that is added to the pool, how do miners access the pool? How is it ensured that none of the transactions are left out of a block? If you and I both mine a block, you slightly before me, and someone makes a transaction in between, wouldn't their transaction get lost as new blocks were added on top of yours rather than mine?
If I mine a block, is my reward stored as a transaction in that block or the subsequent one?
Or is the block itself verification of the reward?
How do cryptocurrency wallets stay up to date?
If I am mining and housing a wallet on the same computer, and I mine a block shortly after someone else has beaten me to it, how is it ensured that my wallet doesn't reflect me having mined the block?
I will certainly have more questions after receiving some answers, so I appreciate anyone taking the time to explain this to me!

Welcome to the FLO subreddit! Here you can learn about FLO and its use as a worldwide public record in many blockchain-based applications

FLO: a worldwide public record

http://flo.cash

What is FLO?
FLO is a cryptocurrency that introduces a worldwide public record for storing information. FLO coins are needed to pay for storage capacity, and coins are issued to reward participants for their work to secure and distribute information.
FLO is used to send payments and store data. This encourages building applications because anyone has the ability to write data into FLO.
How does FLO work?
FLO is a network similar to bitcoin where the open ledger is secured by miners competing to find proof-of-work. FLO has its own ledger, called the FLO blockchain, that can be thought of as a digital public space for storing information.

A Descentralizada Biblioteca de Alexandria (The Decentralized Library of Alexandria)

Um pouco de história [Bem Resumido]: A Biblioteca antiga de Alexandria é um perfeito e trágico, exemplo do problema com a centralização. A arquitetura da informação de hoje é semelhantemente vulneráveis, porque formam um tipo de rede centralizado para armazenar e distribuir informações.
A Tecnologia descentralizada elimina pontos centrais de fracasso.
Por isso venho lhe mostrar A Descentralizada Biblioteca de Alexandria que protege o acesso transparente e sem censura à arte e informação.
A Descentralizada Biblioteca de Alexandria é um padrão open-source (Código Aberto) em desenvolvimento ativo para permitir aos usuários publicar, distribuir e vender conteúdo original, de música a vídeos para o cinema, invenções 3d imprimíveis, receitas, livros e qualquer outra coisa. É uma biblioteca descentralizada unificada de arte, história e cultura que os usuários interagem através de uma variedade de aplicações front-end. Com um navegador nativo que está em desenvolvimento contínuo, mas o padrão Alexandria também pode ser utilizado por outros desenvolvedores de código aberto e operadores da indústria ainda atuais, como o YouTube, Soundcloud, iTunes e Netflix para oferecer uma proposta de valor muito superior aos provedores de conteúdo e uma melhor experiência para os usuários que os atualmente estão disponíveis no mercado.
A plataforma de Alexandria é um amálgama de dois Blockchain e uma tabela hash distribuída (DHT), especificamente, o Blockchain Bitcoin e Florincoin e o DHT Inter-Planetary-File-System (IPFS). Estas três “camadas” cada uma executar uma função essencial da norma Alexandria: o processamento de pagamentos entre o público e os artistas podem ser com o Bitcoin, o índice da biblioteca é armazenado permanentemente no Blockchain da Florincoin e seu armazenamento e distribuição de conteúdo é facilitada com IPFS.
O que Bitcoin fez pelo dinheiro, Alexandria fará para publicação de conteúdo digital e de distribuição através da remoção de pontos centrais de fracasso e financeiramente incentivando usuários ao redor do mundo.
Resumo: ALEXANDRIA: é uma biblioteca descentralizada e mercado de mídia de qualquer espécie, protegida por um blockchain e open source. Como o YouTube ou Spotify sem servidores, anúncios ou censura.
Primeira vez divulgado no Youtube:
A Biblioteca descentralizada de Alexandria – San Diego Bitcoin Meetup em Agosto/2015
Alexandria v0.5.1 alpha demo em Dezembro/2015
A Projeto feito em Junho de 2016: Alexandria at the Decentralized Web Summit

Ethereum's blockchain is one that businesses can actually use which is why the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance was formed by companies like Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Cisco, BBVA, JP Morgan, ING and UBS. Bitcoin jump started this blockchain phenomenon but Ethereum's blockchain technology offers features that corporations can utilize. Last year the "Big Four" auditing corporations got together to discuss how Ethereum's blockchain can be useful to them in the future.
I am sure many of us here have no doubt that distributed ledger technology using cryptographic verification/authentication will change our future in ways we can't even foresee. I have been following Bitcoin since literally the very beginning when mining with your CPU was extremely profitable (if you had the foresight to keep them and keep them safe), I remember when Dwolla and BitInstant was all the rage and you had to convince people that bitcoin was not a pyramid scheme. I have built automated trading bots using MtGox APIs and used them for quite some time until Gox became defunct.
I am all for the success and rising future of bitcoin, although I could not explain to you from a first hand understanding of the bitcoin protocol why BU is so bad I do agree with the general consensus here given what I have read from thousands upon thousands of comments. I remember how badly the last fork-war tore this community apart as well.
However, I have more than enough room in my heart and my wallet for altcoins that have proven their legitimacy to which I only believe there are two at this current point in time. I am not some band-wagoner who believes that bitcoin is the one and only cryptocurrency, that is the same type of mentality as people who believe that cash and gold is king. They might very well have been king until up and out of nowhere another beast forms right under your noses. Don't get me wrong I am not saying Ethereum is that technology but I can see the toxicity that this bitcoin war is causing. It has honestly caused me to lose faith in bitcoin and it's future to the point where this week my hands grew weak and I cashed out 25% of my holdings, transferred 25% to Ethereum and I have 25% on Coinbase as I wait to see how this situation plays out. I realize that your average Joe everyday investors probably are not even aware there is a war going on and probably don't even care, but I do.
It reminds me of this most recent presidential campaign you have one side that is proven and while they may not be perfect is obvious they have the best intentions for the entire community and on the other side you have a bunch of greedy bastards slinging shit, outright lying and trying to cover those lies with more lies. In the end it just makes everybody look bad despite being on the right side and doing the best you can.
In the meantime there is no doubt in my mind that while bitcoin stagnates with this war everyday it loses its edge over the newer technologies like Ethereum. Although Ethereum has not yet withstood the test of time and had a pretty significant setback early on I do believe the usability and usefulness of their blockchain technology being way more than just a store of value and actually have significant functionality will pick up the type of corporate steam that bitcoin not only wishes it has and deserves.
I will say it again I am all for the success of bitcoin, it holds a dear place in my heart. I am not sure if the OP of this thread was even referring to Ethereum when talking about spreading FUD (Honestly I think BU is doing more of that than anybody else by a large margin). I am not sure if the post I am reply to was an attempt to dismiss Ethereum's blocktech as something that is just so meaningless he didn't even learn of it's usefulness. But to simply dismiss other blockchains and anybody who speaks highly of them as FUD is a disservice to itself and this community. We only have one enemy here and that is BU.

Colored Coins getting its first real-world implementation?

Bryce Weiner of Blocktech is using the colored coin meta layer on MyriadCoin to create a Brazillian MYR token called "Liberdade".
To summarize briefly, Myriad is an altcoin that is the first to implement a multi-PoW blockchain which makes mining possible using SHA256, Scrypt, Skein, Groestl, OR Qubit (the blockchain rewards are split 20% to each algorithm).
What are your thoughts on branding a coin like this, or Bitcoin, to market cryptocurrencies towards a specific population better? The people may identify more with the cultural appeal while still gaining advantage of transacting the tokens across the cryptocurrency network? Usually we see colored coins discussed with assets and property, but not culture.
The main problem I see with Bitcoin though is the high cost entry into mining, which is how the colored coins get branded and 'integrated' into the culture of the population. If you can get a population mining a coin with the colored-coin wallets, though, it may assist in a grassroots adoption.

Uncensorable Decentralized Library of Alexandria - the future of adult media distribution

http://blocktech.com/
"An open-source distributed library for sharing and preserving art, history and culture. Imagine a platform like Youtube, Soundcloud, or Netflix - without any of the costly server or bandwidth overhead. Users can self-publish anything, including videos, music, books, 3D-printables, recipes, and more. Content creators have complete control over how their work is published with several different monetization options. Only the publisher has the power to remove hehis content from the library.
What Bitcoin did for money, Alexandria will do for digital content publishing and distribution by removing central points of failure and financially incentivizing users around the world.
How does it work?
Alexandria harnesses the power of distributed technologies, including IPFS and the Bitcoin and Florincoin blockchains. IPFS, based on BitTorrent technology, allows for the library to hold an inconceivable amount of content, while ensuring that content is delivered efficiently when demand is highest. Bitcoin is optionally used for audience-to-publisher payments. The Florincoin blockchain provides a permanent, publicly accessible publishing ledger and payments layer creating data permanence and financial incentive for users to contribute to the growth and security of the platform."

Our split with Bryce Weiner

This project started in end of April 2014, when I came up with the concept. I approached Rainforest Fdtn (RF) about it on May 2nd. Our first call was over 3 hours long, because they had never even heard of Bitcoin. So for months we discussed and outlined the way this project would work.
I started looking for a dev in June, by attending Bitcoin meetups in NY. That is where I met Coin.co and pitched them on the idea which they loved and wanted to be a part of it also. I also met a dev there that was interested in the project and we started discussing details for about a month. He ended up not being what we were looking for so we parted ways, but around that time (end of July 2014), I met a dev by the name of Joseph who had gotten a job working at blocktech.
Joseph introduced me to Devon Read on 8/8/14 through email. We started discussing the project and he seemed very enthusiastic and offered to have blocktech build the coin for us.
We spoke for about a month on the coin specifics etc. The original coin specifics were VERY different. The premine was only supposed to be 12.5mil (1.25% of total coins), 5% interest PoS. RF was under a sell schedule that looked like.. at $1.50 they could sell 2% of their premine at $3 another 2% etc. If they went through their entire sell schedule they would yield around 1.5bil which was needed for the planting of the 1bil trees.
Devon Read introduced me to Bryce Weiner in the beginning of September 2014 and said that he'd be taking over the project. Bryce really understood the concept and our vision at first, and he was very excited to be a part of this. So it went that contracts were done up and we started to get to work.
From Sept to Dec we focused on logo, motto, colors, site plan, designs etc. Bryce assured me that the coin would not take longer then a few weeks to build and test, so whenever we were ready with everything he could have it done as soon as we needed it.
When we cycled back to Bryce in Dec he had already left Blocktech, but told me that they parted ways but were amicable and that he was still very interested in doing the coin. It wasnt until Jan/Feb that we became aware of Bryce's negative google results. But by this time we were all invested in the project and he assured us that what was written was not true about him. I have to say at this time Bryce was definitely helping in sculpting the idea of the coin and ways to get it out there. He never came off as malicious or evil as some people have pointed him out to be. We just chalked it up to people hating in the forums, because they lost money and Bryce was the only one that was "named" to those specific coins.
Around the same time (February) our front end dev had personal issues and had to leave the project. I searched for a new dev and found one (March) that is a friend of mine and has done front end dev work on some of my past projects. At this time Bryce came up with a new coin structure (the one we went with), and told us that these were much better coin features. He assured us that the 10% interest and the large premine would benefit RF because they would make BitSeeds that they can pass off to donors every year. Oh also the large premine was actually going to be given back to the community in the form of 1mil coins every year.
We came up with the concept of gifting BitSeeds to donors. This way we wouldn't have to sell BitSeeds into the market and lower the price for everyone else. The type of donors RF gets is usually very affluent people who instead of receiving a tote bag for their donation would appreciate getting BitSeeds that they would be able to spend at participating merchants.
We came up with a great idea for merchants. As you all know CC companies take about 3% from every transaction online and if you accept Bitcoin you don't pay those fees. Well what we decided to do with BitSeeds, is take 1.25% from every transaction and put that amount in the merchants charity wallet. That wallet is restricted for 1 year. During this time the wallet is being vested (just like if your compnay pays out bonuses in stock). At the end of the 1 year the merchant can request to sell that amount in that wallet and that amount gets donated to a charity and that charity then writes a tax receipt for write off purposes to the merchant. (For example shoeking.com accepts BitSeeds, someone makes a purchase for $100, the merchant gets $98.75 and the remaining $1.25 stays as BitSeeds and gets transferred to shoeking.com charity wallet. At the end of the 1 year shoeking.com requests to sell the wallet. We sell the wallet and donate the amount, which should now be more then $1.25 because its been a year and we expect the price of the coin to go up with time. We donate the amount to a charity the merchant requests or one from our list of participating charities. The charity that received the amount lets say $2.50 worth (if the coin doubled in the year) would then write a tax receipt so shoeking.com could write off $2.50 for charity. Besides that the merchant would receive backlinks from us and RF and a badge that says they are a participating merchant helping the environment and our plant a billion initiative.
Our site was done in April and so was the new coin Bryce had envisioned. We finished our PR and started sending it out. Coindesk.com did the first writeup and that night (4/17/15) we launched. The next day is when we got the extreme hashrate and the coins difficulty settings didn't adjust the way they should of and so we had the issue that we were dealing with here.
About 2 weeks ago I asked Bryce if he knew anyone for social media. He answered the next day that he knew someone, but that didn't pan out. The following day Bryce was saying things that I won't mention, because it doesn't have to do with BitSeeds, but let's just say that that day is when I started looking for a new dev. My conversations with Bryce over the past 2 weeks were like speaking with a different person. Not the same jovial guy that has worked and helped on this project for the past 9 months. He has been rude and very belittling. I stopped feeling comfortable with him being the main dev and that is when I wrote that post that he is no longer associated with this project.
I have asked him multiple times over the past few weeks to provide me with the private keys needed for this project and he has not obliged. I now feel that he is holding this coin hostage. Whenever we find a new dev our plan is to have him write a new coin for us and reimburse all the wallets with new coins. With this new coin we'd be able to have mining again with difficulty settings that actually adjust when they're supposed to. Many of you have expressed positive posts because we have ended our relationship with Bryce, and we hope you understand why we believe we need a new coin not written by him. This project right now is in its infancy and these types of changes are better suited now then later. I have already spoken to a few devs that are all giving us their ideas on how to rebuild this coin.
If any of you have any ideas or suggestions, like I said before we will reward you with BitSeeds if we implement your ideas. Worth's instructional videos and our giveaways are ready to go and are just waiting on a new codebase to be launched. We appreciate your patience and support in this transition.

Florincoin Add Request (CNY/BTC Markets)

Good morning!
I'm writing you with the request that you please consider adding Florincoin. Florincoin is being used for a Bitcoin based decentralized library called Alexandria. Florincoin is a SCRYPT coin that was created in 2013. It was the first coin that allowed for txt to be entered directly into the blockchain with each transaction. We believe that a decentralized library will be important for the entire world in order to share information without being censored.
We have exchanges in the USA (Poloniex and Bittrex) and Switzerland (Shapeshift) thus far. I am looking to break it into the Chinese market places in order to be available to trade comfortably for our Asian users.
Alexandria has some big updates and partnerships coming very soon. Establishing exchanges around the world is absolutely key for a global launch and I pray that your exchange chooses to become a part of it.
I do not work for Blocktech.com. I'm just a strong believer in decentralized and indestructible libraries for storing information.
Bellow are some links with more details:

#Liberdade will be a colored coin on the Myriad blockchain

Myriad has partnered with Bryce Weiner of Blocktech who will be bringing cryptocurrencies to Brazil in the form of Liberdade, a colored Myriad coin that uses the same multi-PoW blockchain for transactoins.
Myriad will secure the blockchain on which countries can build their own cryptocurrencies using colored coins. These coins can be branded to have cultural appeal and can be used locally or internationally.
The colored coins do not increase or decrease the total MYR supply. They simply use extra data in the input header to distinguish 'color'. 1 Liberdade coin = 1 colored MYR. Only MYR coins mined through the Liberdade wallet daemon can be colored with 'Liberdade'. Liberdade's can be uncolored in MYR wallets however, making their supply deflationary.
Remember, Myriad is not explicitly a 'country coin' for Brazil. It simply has the blockchain innovation that allows SHA256 ASICs to secure the network and GPU miners of the other 4 separate algorithms to mine with confidence. These properties happen to be very well suited for the mass adoption problems Bitcoin and the rest are unable to solve.
Feel free to bring Myriad anywhere in the world!
