Gridcoin 5.0.0.0-Mandatory "Fern" Release

https://github.com/gridcoin-community/Gridcoin-Research/releases/tag/5.0.0.0
Finally! After over ten months of development and testing, "Fern" has arrived! This is a whopper. 240 pull requests merged. Essentially a complete rewrite that was started with the scraper (the "neural net" rewrite) in "Denise" has now been completed. Practically the ENTIRE Gridcoin specific codebase resting on top of the vanilla Bitcoin/Peercoin/Blackcoin vanilla PoS code has been rewritten. This removes the team requirement at last (see below), although there are many other important improvements besides that.
Fern was a monumental undertaking. We had to encode all of the old rules active for the v10 block protocol in new code and ensure that the new code was 100% compatible. This had to be done in such a way as to clear out all of the old spaghetti and ring-fence it with tightly controlled class implementations. We then wrote an entirely new, simplified ruleset for research rewards and reengineered contracts (which includes beacon management, polls, and voting) using properly classed code. The fundamentals of Gridcoin with this release are now on a very sound and maintainable footing, and the developers believe the codebase as updated here will serve as the fundamental basis for Gridcoin's future roadmap.
We have been testing this for MONTHS on testnet in various stages. The v10 (legacy) compatibility code has been running on testnet continuously as it was developed to ensure compatibility with existing nodes. During the last few months, we have done two private testnet forks and then the full public testnet testing for v11 code (the new protocol which is what Fern implements). The developers have also been running non-staking "sentinel" nodes on mainnet with this code to verify that the consensus rules are problem-free for the legacy compatibility code on the broader mainnet. We believe this amount of testing is going to result in a smooth rollout.
Given the amount of changes in Fern, I am presenting TWO changelogs below. One is high level, which summarizes the most significant changes in the protocol. The second changelog is the detailed one in the usual format, and gives you an inkling of the size of this release.

Highlights

Protocol

Note that the protocol changes will not become active until we cross the hard-fork transition height to v11, which has been set at 2053000. Given current average block spacing, this should happen around October 4, about one month from now.
Note that to get all of the beacons in the network on the new protocol, we are requiring ALL beacons to be validated. A two week (14 day) grace period is provided by the code, starting at the time of the transition height, for people currently holding a beacon to validate the beacon and prevent it from expiring. That means that EVERY CRUNCHER must advertise and validate their beacon AFTER the v11 transition (around Oct 4th) and BEFORE October 18th (or more precisely, 14 days from the actual date of the v11 transition). If you do not advertise and validate your beacon by this time, your beacon will expire and you will stop earning research rewards until you advertise and validate a new beacon. This process has been made much easier by a brand new beacon "wizard" that helps manage beacon advertisements and renewals. Once a beacon has been validated and is a v11 protocol beacon, the normal 180 day expiration rules apply. Note, however, that the 180 day expiration on research rewards has been removed with the Fern update. This means that while your beacon might expire after 180 days, your earned research rewards will be retained and can be claimed by advertising a beacon with the same CPID and going through the validation process again. In other words, you do not lose any earned research rewards if you do not stake a block within 180 days and keep your beacon up-to-date.
The transition height is also when the team requirement will be relaxed for the network.

GUI

Besides the beacon wizard, there are a number of improvements to the GUI, including new UI transaction types (and icons) for staking the superblock, sidestake sends, beacon advertisement, voting, poll creation, and transactions with a message. The main screen has been revamped with a better summary section, and better status icons. Several changes under the hood have improved GUI performance. And finally, the diagnostics have been revamped.

Blockchain

The wallet sync speed has been DRASTICALLY improved. A decent machine with a good network connection should be able to sync the entire mainnet blockchain in less than 4 hours. A fast machine with a really fast network connection and a good SSD can do it in about 2.5 hours. One of our goals was to reduce or eliminate the reliance on snapshots for mainnet, and I think we have accomplished that goal with the new sync speed. We have also streamlined the in-memory structures for the blockchain which shaves some memory use.
There are so many goodies here it is hard to summarize them all.
I would like to thank all of the contributors to this release, but especially thank @cyrossignol, whose incredible contributions formed the backbone of this release. I would also like to pay special thanks to @barton2526, @caraka, and @Quezacoatl1, who tirelessly helped during the testing and polishing phase on testnet with testing and repeated builds for all architectures.
The developers are proud to present this release to the community and we believe this represents the starting point for a true renaissance for Gridcoin!

Summary Changelog

Accrual

Changed

Most significantly, nodes calculate research rewards directly from the magnitudes in EACH superblock between stakes instead of using a two- or three- point average based on a CPID's current magnitude and the magnitude for the CPID when it last staked. For those long-timers in the community, this has been referred to as "Superblock Windows," and was first done in proof-of-concept form by @denravonska.

Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

How to Upgrade?

Windows
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer.
OSX
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

I'm too late.

I'm too late to be an early adopter of BTC, I screwed around in my CompSci classes a decade before the Genesis block instead of helping. I'm too late to mine BTC on my CPU, by almost a decade. I'm too late to mine BTC on my GPU, by several years. I'm almost too late to mine BTC on my ASICs, they'll be out of date in a few years. Maybe less. I've made TWO purchases with BTC, both to buy another ASIC. I'm sold some BTC. Ok, I'm too early there, but regret it just the same.
I just spun up a testnet BTC node and installed the Eclair Lightning Network client.
I did it on an OS I'm really not familiar with, Ubuntu is just different enough from Win10 to make me struggle. I could have done it on Win10, I chose the harder route.
I'm NOT too late to do my little part to make this happen. I opened a channel between a testnet Core wallet and an online testnet wallet and bounced Lightning transactions back and forth for an hour, taking only a few seconds between transactions. Paid only 2 miner's fees.
I could have sent transactions to anyone running a connected Lightning client just as fast. And vice versa. It took half an hour to fund the channel, yes. And another half an hour or so to secure my funds when I closed the channel. Had I done those transactions without Lightning, it'd have taken most of a day. Not even Bitcoin Cash's large block size could have done that, its limited by the same 10 minute heartbeat Bitcoin has.
THIS feels like the future. I am NOT too late. Noone is.
Edit: Holy moly my inbox. Thank you for the Gold, now I have something more to research. :) I did NOT expect this post to get that many hits overnight! It took me a while to read thru the comments, every one of them to this point, and I'm glad to see so much agreement, discussion, arguments, and even veiled insults to my username. Its all good, I get far worse on a good day IRL. A few more people know about LN, some good explanations were given, that is the kind of thing we're going to need to bootstrap the LN network. The complexity is a problem compared to standard bitcoin transactions and wallets...but you realize just how complex those wallets and transactions are? Maybe not, well-designed software hides all the gorey details. I imagine LN wallets will be the same given more development, all the channel business hidden to anyone using Easy-mode and the refunding of channels handled behind the scenes.
Probably not the best place to put something like this, in an edit, but oh well. Again, thank you everyone, I'm gonna go do something not-BTC related for a few hours now, have fun!

Thank you for running your own full Vertcoin node and supporting VTC network! We currently have 518 Full Nodes running.

Thank you for running your own full Vertcoin node and supporting VTC network! We currently have 518 Full Nodes running.
Official node scanner list: https://scanner.vertcoin.org/nodes
Since every full VTC node can only serve so many clients, it's important to do your part for the Vertcoin network and run your own full node.
Q: WHAT IS A FULL NODE? A: Full nodes maintain a copy of the blockchain/ledger, distribute it to those downloading it, confirm transactions, and further spread out all of the previous functions to make the network more resilient. https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node
Q: Do I need to be a miner? A: No, you don't need to be a miner. Miners create new blocks. Full nodes simply share existing blocks (the entire VTC blockchain) with the rest of VTC wallet users.
Q: How do I run a Full VTC node on Intel NUC? A: Intel NUC Vertcoin full node installation done using Windows guide: https://github.com/vertcoin-project/VertDocs/blob/mastedocs/FullNodes/intel-nuc.md
Q: How do I run a Full VTC node? A: It's actually quite easy to do. If you run Vertcoin-QT (Vertcoin Core Wallet) on your PC/MAC desktop, keep it active in the systray. Then, make sure that you map the public port 5889 of your router to the port 5889 on the machine running Vertcoin-QT or vertcoind. For people running a public p2pool node this should be a no-brainer: you already have a synchronized vertcoind. So if you haven't opened port 5889 do it now - it's all you have to do. Your node is then public and can serve blocks and relay transactions.This makes our network much stronger and will help it to perform better. Any old or low power computer is good enough to run a full VTC node. If you have a Raspberry Pi or any old PC lying around, install vertcoind and run it in the background.
Q: How do I know if my Full Node is working correctly? A: To be a full node, you have to check to make sure you are accepting incoming connections. To do that, go under Help -> Debug Window. In the first tab, "Information", there is a Network "Number of Connections" which will show both incoming and outgoing connections. If the "In" is 0, then you are not a full node. If the "In" is greater than 0, you are acting as a full node and supporting VTC blockchain! Thank you!

For people running a public p2pool node this should be a no-brainer: you already have a synchronized vertcoind. So if you haven't opened port 5889 do it now - it's all you have to do. Your node is then public and can serve blocks and relay transactions.This makes our network much stronger and will help it to perform better. Any old or low power computer is good enough to run a full VTC node. If you have a Raspberry Pi or any old PC lying around, install vertcoind and run it in the background.
Q: How do I know if my Full Node is working correctly? A: To be a full node, you have to check to make sure you are accepting incoming connections. To do that, go under Help -> Debug Window. In the first tab, "Information", there is a Network "Number of Connections" which will show both incoming and outgoing connections. If the "In" is 0, then you are not a full node. If the "In" is greater than 0, you are acting as a full node and supporting VTC blockchain! Thank you!

DAG Technology Analysis and Measurement

The report produced by the fire block chain coins Institute, author: Yuan Yuming, Hu Zhiwei, PDF version please read the original text download
Summary
The Fire Coin Blockchain Application Research Institute conducts research on distributed ledger technology based on directed acyclic graph (DAG) data structure from a technical perspective, and through the specific technical test of typical representative project IOTA, the main research results are obtained:
Report body
1 Introduction
Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology, and distributed ledger technology is not limited to the "blockchain" technology. In the wave of digital economic development, more distributed ledger technology is being explored and applied in order to improve the original technology and meet more practical business application scenarios. Directed Acylic Graph (hereinafter referred to as "DAG") is one of the representatives.
What is DAG technology and the design behind it? What is the actual application effect?We attempted to obtain analytical conclusions through deep analysis of DAG technology and actual test runs of representative project IOTA.
It should also be noted that the results of the indicator data obtained from the test are not and should not be considered as proof or confirmation of the final effect of the IOTA platform or project. Hereby declare.
2. Main conclusions
After research and test analysis, we have the following main conclusions and technical recommendations:
3.DAG Introduction
3.1. Introduction to DAG Principle
DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) is a data structure that represents a directed graph, and in this graph, it cannot return to this point (no loop) from any vertex, as shown in the figure. Shown as follows:
📷
After the DAG technology-based distributed ledger (hereinafter referred to as DAG) technology has been proposed in recent years, many people think that it is hopeful to replace the blockchain technology in the narrow sense. Because the goal of DAG at design time is to preserve the advantages of the blockchain and to improve the shortcomings of the blockchain.
Different from the traditional linear blockchain structure, the transaction record of the distributed ledger platform represented by IOTA forms a relational structure with a directed acyclic graph, as shown in the following figure.
📷
3.2. DAG characteristics
Due to the different data structure from the previous blockchain, the DAG-based distributed ledger technology has the characteristics of high scalability, high concurrency and is suitable for IoT scenarios.
3.2.1. High scalability, high concurrency
The data synchronization mechanism of traditional linear blockchains (such as Ethereum) is synchronous, which may cause network congestion. The DAG network adopts an asynchronous communication mechanism, allowing concurrent writing. Multiple nodes can simultaneously trade at different tempos without having a clear sequence. Therefore, the data of the network may be inconsistent at the same time, but it will eventually be synchronized.

3.2.2. Applicable to IoT scenarios

In the traditional blockchain network, there are many transactions in each block. The miners are packaged and sent uniformly, involving multiple users. In the DAG network, there is no concept of “block”, the smallest unit of the network. It is a "transaction", each new transaction needs to verify the first two transactions, so the DAG network does not need miners to pass the trust, transfer does not require a fee, which makes DAG technology suitable for small payments.
4. Analysis of technical ideas
Trilemma, or "trilemma", means that in a particular situation, only two of the three advantageous options can be selected or one of the three adverse choices must be chosen. This type of selection dilemma has related cases in various fields such as religion, law, philosophy, economics, and business management.Blockchain is no exception. The impossible triangle in the blockchain is: Scalability, Decentralization, and Security can only choose two of them.
If you analyze DAG technology according to this idea, according to the previous introduction, then DAG has undoubtedly occupied the two aspects of decentralization and scalability. The decentralization and scalability of the DAG can be considered as two-sided, because of the asynchronous accounting features brought about by the DAG data structure, while achieving the high degree of decentralization of the participating network nodes and the scalability of the transaction.
5. There is a problem
Since the characteristics of the data structure bring decentralization and scalability at the same time, it is speculated that the security is a hidden danger according to the theory of impossible triangles. But because DAG is a relatively innovative and special structure, can it be more perfect to achieve security? This is not the case from the actual results.
5.1. Double flower problem
The characteristics of DAG asynchronous communication make it possible for a double-flower attack. For example, an attacker adds two conflicting transactions (double spending) at two different locations on the network, and the transactions are continuously forward-checked in the network until they appear on the verification path of the same transaction, and the network discovers the conflict. At this time, the common ancestor nodes that the two transactions are gathered together can determine which transaction is a double-flower attack.
If the trading path is too short, there will be a problem like "Blowball": when most transactions are "lazy" in extreme cases, only the early trading, the trading network will form a minority. Early transactions are the core central topology. This is not a good thing for DAGs that rely on ever-increasing transactions to increase network reliability.
Therefore, at present, for the double flower problem, it is necessary to comprehensively consider the actual situation for design. Different DAG networks have their own solutions.
5.2. Shadow chain problem
Due to the potential problem of double flowers, when an attacker can build a sufficient number of transactions, it is possible to fork a fraudulent branch (shadow chain) from the real network data, which contains a double flower transaction, and then this The branch is merged into the DAG network, and in this case it is possible for this branch to replace the original transaction data.
6. Introduction to the current improvement plan
At present, the project mainly guarantees safety by sacrificing the native characteristics of some DAGs.
The IOTA project uses the Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) approach to solve this problem. The IOTA introduces the concept of Cumulative Weight for transactions to record the number of times the transaction has been cited in order to indicate the importance of its transaction. The MCMC algorithm selects the existing transactions in the current network as a reference for the newly added transactions by weighting the random weights of the accumulated weights. That is, the more referenced the transaction path, the easier it is to be selected by the algorithm. The walk strategy has also been optimized in version 1.5.0 to control the "width" of the transaction topology to a reasonable range, making the network more secure.
However, at the beginning of the platform startup, due to the limited number of participating nodes and transactions, it is difficult to prevent a malicious organization from sending a large number of malicious transactions through a large number of nodes to cause the entire network to be attacked by the shadow chain. Therefore, an authoritative arbitration institution is needed to determine the validity of the transaction. In IOTA, this node is a Coordinator, which periodically snapshots the current transaction data network (Tangle); the transactions contained in the snapshot are confirmed as valid transactions. But Coordinator doesn't always exist. As the entire network runs and grows, IOTA will cancel the Coordinator at some point in the future.
The Byteball improvement program features its design for the witness and the main chain. Because the structure of DAG brings a lot of transactions with partial order, and to avoid double flowers, it is necessary to establish a full order relationship for these transactions to form a transaction backbone. An earlier transaction on the main chain is considered a valid transaction.Witnesses, who are held by well-known users or institutions, form a main chain by constantly sending transactions to confirm other user transactions.
The above scheme may also bring different changes to the platform based on the DAG structure. Taking IOTA as an example, because of the introduction of Coordinator, the decentralization characteristics are reduced to some extent.
7. Actual operation
7.1. Positive effects
In addition to solving security problems, the above solutions can also solve the smart contract problem to some extent.
Due to the two potential problems caused by the native features of DAG: (1) The transaction duration is uncontrollable. The current mechanism for requesting retransmission requires some complicated timeout mechanism design on the client side, hoping for a simple one-time confirmation mechanism. (2) There is no global sorting mechanism, which results in limited types of operations supported by the system. Therefore, on the distributed ledger platform based on DAG technology, it is difficult to implement Turing's complete intelligent contract system.
In order to ensure that the smart contract can run, an organization is needed to do the above work. The current Coordinator or main chain can achieve similar results.
7.2. Negative effects
As one of the most intuitive indicators, DAG's TPS should theoretically be unlimited. If the maximum TPS of the IOTA platform is compared to the capacity of a factory, then the daily operation of TPS is the daily production of the plant.
For the largest TPS, the April 2017 IOTA stress test showed that the network had transaction processing capabilities of 112 CTPS and 895 TPS. This is the result of a small test network consisting of 250 nodes.
For the daily operation of TPS, from the data that is currently publicly available, the average TPS of the main network in the near future is about 8.2, and the CTPS (the number of confirmed transactions per second) is about 2.7.
📷
The average average TPS of the test network is about 4, and the CTPS is about 3.

Is this related to the existence of Coordinator? Actual testing is needed to further demonstrate.
8. Measured analysis
The operational statistics of the open test network are related to many factors.For further analysis, we continue to use the IOTA platform as an example to build a private test environment for technical measurement analysis.
8.1. Test Architecture
The relationship between the components we built this test is shown below.
📷
among them:
8.2. Testing the hardware environment
The server uses Amazon AWS EC2 C5.4xlarge: 16 core 3GHz, Intel Xeon Platinum 8124M CPU, 32GB memory, 10Gbps LAN network between servers, communication delay (ping) is less than 1ms, operating system is Ubuntu 16.04.
8.3. Test scenarios and results analysis

8.3.1. Default PoW Difficulty Value

Although there is no concept such as “miners”, the IOTA node still needs to prove the workload before sending the transaction to avoid sending a large number of transactions to flood the network. The Minimum Weight Magnitude is similar to Bitcoin. The result of PoW should be the number of digits of "9", 9 of which is "000" in the ternary used by IOTA. The IOTA difficulty value can be set before the node is started.
Currently for the production network, the difficulty value of the IOTA is set to 14; the test network is set to 9. Therefore, we first use the test network's default difficulty value of 9 to test, get the following test results.
📷
Since each IOTA's bundle contains multiple transfers, the actual processed TPS will be higher than the send rate. But by executing the script that parses zmq, it can be observed that the current TPS is very low. Another phenomenon is that the number of requests that can be sent successfully per second is also low.
After analysis, the reason is that the test uses VPS, so in PoW, the CPU is mainly used for calculation, so the transaction speed is mainly affected by the transmission speed.

8.3.2. Decrease the PoW difficulty value

Re-test the difficulty value to 1 and get the following results.
📷
As can be seen from the results, TPS will increase after the difficulty is reduced. Therefore, the current TPS of the IOTA project does not reach the bottleneck where the Coordinator is located, but mainly because of the hardware and network of the client itself that sends the transaction. The IOTA community is currently working on the implementation of FPGA-based Curl algorithm and CPU instruction set optimization. Our test results also confirm that we can continue to explore the performance potential of the DAG platform in this way.

8.3.3. Reduce the number of test network nodes

Due to the characteristics of DAG, the actual TPS of the platform and the number of network nodes may also be related. Therefore, when the difficulty value is kept at 1, the number of network nodes is reduced to 10 and the test is repeated to obtain the following results.
📷
As can be seen from the results, as the number of nodes decreases, the actual processing of TPS also decreases, and is lower than the transmission rate. This shows that in a DAG environment, maintaining a sufficient size node will facilitate the processing of the transaction.

Mega FAQ (Or: Please come here for your questions first)

Qbundle Guide (Step by step setup & Bootstrap) https://burstwiki.org/wiki/QBundle
1( I want to mine or activate My account. Where do find the multiple coins?
You only need 1, an outgoing transaction or reward reassignment will set the public key. Get them from:
https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/comments/7q8zve/initial_burstcoin_requests/
Or (Faucet list)
https://faucet.burstpay.net/ (if this is empty, come back later)

Or
https://forums.getburst.net/c/new-members-introductions/getting-started-initial-burstcoin-requests
2( I bought coins on Bittrex and want to move to my new wallet, but can't. Why?
Bittrex will only send to accounts with a public key (not a Burst requirement) so see number 1 and either set the name on the account (IF you will not mine) or set the reward recipient to the pool. Either action will enable the account and allow for transfers from Bittrex.
3( I sent coins from Poloniex/anywhere to Bittrex and they don’t show up after a considerable time. Why?
You need to set an unencrypted message on the transaction, informing Bittrex which account to send the funds to (this is in the directions on Bittrex). Did you do this? Contact Bittrex support with all the details and eventually you will get your funds.
4( How much can I make on Burst?
https://explore.burst.cryptoguru.org/tool/calculate
Gives you an average over time assuming a few things like: Average luck/100% uptime/no overlapping/fees on pool/good plot scan time (<20 seconds) if you do not have all of these, you may not see that number.
5( If I use SSD’s would I make more money?
No, it’s 95% capacity and 5% scan time that determine success. More plot area = better deadlines = better chance of forging a block, or better rates from a pool.
6( What is ‘solo’ and ‘pool’ (wasn’t his name Chewbacca?)
Solo is where you attempt to ‘forge’ (mine) a block by yourself; you get 100% of the block reward and fees. But you only receive funds if you forge, no burst for coming in second place.
Pools allow a group of miners to ‘pool’ together their resources and when a miner wins, they give the pool the winnings (this is done by the reward assignment you completed earlier), it is then divided according to different percentages and methods and burst is sent out according to pool rules (minimum pay-out, time, etc.)
7( I have been mining for 2 days and my wallet doesn’t show any Burst WHY?
Mining solo: it is win-or-lose, nothing in between, and wining is luck and plot size. Pool mining: because it costs 1 burst to send burst, the pools have either a time requirement (every X days) or a minimum amount (100 burst +) so you need to research your pool. Some pools allow for you to set the limit (cryptoGuru and similar) to be met before sending
8( How do I see what I have pending?
On CryptoGuru, based pools, it’s the ‘Pending (burst)’ column, other pools, look for the numbers next to your burst ID. One is Paid and the other pending.
9( I’m part of a pool and I forged a block, but I didn’t recieve the total value of the block, why?
A pool has 2 basic numbers that denote the pay-out method, in the format ‘XX-XX’ (i.e. 50-50) The first number is the % paid to the block forger (miner) and the second is the retained value, which is paid to historic ‘shares’ (or, past blocks that the pool didn’t win, but had a miner that was ‘close’ to winning with a good submitted deadline)
Examples of pools:
0-100 (good for <40TB)
20-80 (30-80TB)
50-50 (60-200TB)
80-20 (150-250)
100-0 (solo mine, 150+ TB)
Please note that there is an overlap as this is personal preference and just guidance; a higher historical share value means a smoother pay-out regime, which some people prefer. If fees are not factored in, or are the same on different pools, the pay-out value will be the same over a long enough period.
10( Is XXX model of hard drive good? Which one do you recommend?
CHEAP is best. If you have 2 new hard drives, both covered by warranty, get the one with the lowest cost per TB (expressed as $/TB , calculated by dividing the cost by the number of terabytes) because plot size is KING,
11( How many drives can I have on my machine?
For best performance, you can have up to 2 drives per thread (3 on a new fast AVX2 CPU). So that quad-core core-2-quad can have up to 8 drives, but a more modern i7 with 4 cores + hyper threading can squeeze 8 * 3 or 24 drives. (Performance while scanning will suffer)
12( Can I game while I mine?
Some people have done so, but you cannot have the ‘maximum’ number of drives and play games generally.
13( Can I mine Burst and GPU mine other coins?
Yes, if you CPU Mine Burst.
14( I’m GPU plotting Burst and GPU mining another coin, my plots are being corrupted, why?
My advice is dedicating a GPU to either mining or plotting, don’t try to do both.
15( What is a ‘plot’?
A plot is a file that contains Hashes, these hashes are used to mine burst. A plot is tied to an account, but they can be created (with the same account ID) on other machines and connected back to your miner(s).
16( Where can I trade/buy/sell Burst?
A list of exchanges is maintained on https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin/ (on the right, ‘Exchanges’ tab) the biggest at the moment are Bittrex and Poloniex, some offer direct Fiat-to-Burst purchase (https://indacoin.com for example)
17( Do I have to store my Burst off the exchange?
No, but it’s safer from hackers who target exchanges, if you cannot guarantee the safety or security of your home computer from Trojans etc, then it might be best to leave on an exchange (but enable 2FA security on your account PLEASE!)
18( What security measures can I take to keep my coin safe?
When you create an account, sign out and back in to your wallet (to make sure you have copied the pass phrase correctly) and keep multiple copies of the key (at least one physically printed or written down and in a safe place, better in 2 places) do not disclose the passphrase to anyone. Finally use either a local wallet or a trusted web wallet (please research before using any web wallet)
19( How can I help Burst?
Run a wallet, which will act as a node (or if you’re a programmer, contact the Dev team Bring attention to burst (without ‘shilling’ or trying to get people to buy) And help translate into your local language
Be a productive member of the community and contribute experience and knowledge if you can, or help others get into Burst.
20( Will I get coins on the fork(s) and where will they be?
There will be no new coin, and no new coins to be given/air dropped etc, the forks are upgrades to burst and there will not be a ‘classic’ or ‘new’ burst.
21( Will I need to move my Burst off of the exchange for the fork?
No, your transactions are on the block chain, which will be used on the fork, they will be visible after the move; nothing will need to be done on your side.
22( Where can I read about the progress of Burst and news in general on the community?
There is no finer place than https://www.burstcoin.ist/
23( What are the communities for Burst and the central website?
Main website: https://www.burst-coin.org/
Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin and https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/

24( When will Burst partner up with a company?
Burst is a currency, the USD does not ‘partner up’ with a company, the DEV team will not partner up and give over to special interests.
25( Why is the DEV team anonymous?
They prefer anonymity, as it allows them to work without constant scrutiny and questions unless they wish to engage, plus the aim is for Burst to become a major contender, and this brings issues with security. They will work and produce results, they owe you nothing and if you cannot see the vision they provide then please do not ‘invest’ for short term gain.
26( When moon/Lambo/$100/make me rich?
My crystal ball is still broken, come back to the FAQ later for answer (seriously, this is a coin to hold, if you want to day-trade, good luck to you)
27( How can I better educate myself and learn about Dymaxion?
Read about the Dymaxion here: https://www.reddit.com/burstcoin/wiki/dymaxion
28( My reads are slow, why?
There are many reasons for this, if your computer has a decent spec it’s likely due to USB3 hub issues, or plugging into a USB2 hub, but other reasons can be multiple plots in the same folder, but it’s best to visit the mining subreddit. They can help more than an simple FAQ https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/
29( I have a great idea for Burst (not proof of stake related)?
Awesome! Please discuss with the DEV team on discord https://discordapp.com/invite/RPhpjVv
(Please be aware that this is a public forum, you need to find who to ask/tell)
30( I have a great idea for Burst (Proof of stake related)?
No. if you want a POS, find a POS coin. On the tangle which is being implemented a POS/POW/POC coin can be created, but BURST will always be POC mined. You are welcome to implement a proof of stake coin on this!
31( Will the Dev team burn any coins?
Burst is not an ICO, so any coins will need to be bought to be burnt. You are welcome to donate, but the DEV team have no intention of burning any coins, or increasing the coin cap.
32( When will there be an IOS wallet?
IOS wallet is completed; we are waiting for it to go on the app store. Apple is the delaying factor.
33( Why do overlapping plots matter?
Plots are like collections of lottery tickets (and if only one ticket could win). Having 2 copies is not useful, and it means that you have less coverage of ‘all’ the possible numbers. It’s not good, avoid.
34( My local wallet used to run, I synchronised it before and now it says ‘stopped’. when I start it, it stops after a few seconds, what should I do?
I suggest that you change the database type to portable MariaDB (on Qbundle, at the top, ‘Database’ select, ‘change database’) and then re-import the database from scratch (see 35)
35( Synchronising the block chain is slow and I have the patience of a goldfish. What can I do?
On Qbundle , ‘Database’ select ‘Bootstrap chain’ and make sure the CryptoGuru repository is selected, then ‘start Import’ this will download and quickly stuff the local database (I suggest Portable MariaDB, see 34) (lol, loop)
36( What will the block reward be next month/will the block rewards run out in 6 months?
https://www.ecomine.earth/burstblockreward/ Rewards will carry on into 2026, but transaction fees will be a bigger % by then, and so profitable mining will continue.
37( How can I get started with Burst (wallet/mining/everything) and I need it in a video

38( Can I mine on multiple machines with the same account?
Yes, if you want to pool mine this can be done (but be prepared for small issues like reported size being incorrect. Just be sure to keep question 33 in mind.)
39( Why do some of my drives take forever to plot?
Most likely they are SMR drives, it’s best to plot onto another SSD and then move the finished plot/part of a plot across to the SMR drive as this is much quicker. SMR drives are fine on the read, just random writes that are terrible.
So plot an SMR drive quickly, plot to a non SMR or better still SSD drive, in as big a chunk as possible (fewer files better) and move. a version of Xplotter, called Splotter, can do this easily.
https://github.com/NoParamedic/SPlotter
40( I have a great idea; why not get listed on more exchanges!!
Exchanges list coins because of 2 reasons:
  1. Clients email and REQUESTING Burst and provide details like:
    i. https://www.burst-coin.org/information-for-exchanges
  2. The coin pays (often A LOT, seriously we’ve been asked for 50 BTC)
I suggest you speak with your exchange and ask ‘when will they offer Burst?’
41( Do you have a roadmap?
https://www.burst-coin.org/roadmap
42( Why is the price of Burst going up/down/sideways/looping through time?
The price of burst is still quite dependent upon Bitcoin, meaning that if Bitcoin gains, the value of Burst gains, if Bitcoin drops then Burst also drops. If there is news for Burst then we will see something independent of Bitcoin moving. Variations can be because of people buying in bulk or selling in bulk. There are also ‘pump and dump’ schemes that we detest, that can cause spikes in price that have nothing to do with news or Bitcoin, just sad people taking advantage of others.
43( Where is the best place to go with my mining questions?
https://www.reddit.com/burstcoinmining/
or https://t.me/BurstCoinMining
44( What hardware do you advise me to buy, is this computer good?
See question 43 for specific questions on hardware, it depends on so many variables. The ‘best’ in my opinion is a 36 bay Supermicro storage server, usually they have dual 6-core CPU’s and space for 36 drives. No USB cables, plotting and mining monster, anything else, DYOR.
45( Where do you buy your hard drives?
I have bought most from EBay in job lots, and some refurbished drives with short warranties. Everything else I have bought, from Amazon.
46( Can I mine on my Google drive/cloud based storage?
In short: no. If you want to try, and get to maybe 1 TB and then find that your local connection isn’t fast enough, or that shortly after, your account is blocked for various reasons. Please be my guest.
47( Can I mine on my NAS?
Some you can mine with the NAS (if it can run the miner, it can scan locally) but generally they’re not very fast. good for maybe 16 TB? Having a plot on a NAS and mining from another computer depends on the network speed between the NAS and scanning computer. I believe you can scan about 8 TB (maybe a bit more) and keep the scan times to within acceptable, but YMMV.
48( How can I set up a node?
No need to set up a node, just set up a wallet (version 2.0.4) or Qbundle (2.2) and it will do the rest
49( Are the passphrases secured?
I’ll leave the effort to a few people to show how secure a 12-word passphrase is: https://burstforum.net/topic/4766/the-canary-burst-early-warning-system Key point: brute forcing it will be around 13,537,856,339,904,134,474,012,675,034 years.
50( I logged into my account (maybe with a different burst ID) and see no balance!!
I have dealt with this very issue multiple times, and there are only 3 options:
  1. You have typed in the password incorrectly
  2. You have copy-pasted the password incorrectly
  3. You are trying to log into a ‘local wallet’ which the block chain has not finished updating
The last one generally leaves the burst ID the same, but old balances will show. No, this is not a security problem, and yes, windows loves to add spaces after the phrase you enter when copied, and that space is important in getting to your account.
51( Are there channels for my language?
Telegram:
Spanish: https://t.me/burstcoin_es
German: https://t.me/Burstcoinde
Italian: https://t.me/BurstCoinItalia
Forum:
Spanish: https://burst-coin.es/index.php/forum/index
Discord:
Spanish: https://discordapp.com/invite/RaaGna9
Bulgarian: https://discord.gg/r4uzTd
(there are others, please contact me to put up)
52( I am mining in a pool, and it says that my effective capacity is lower than I actually have, why?
  1. If you've not been mining for >48 hours, or just added additional capacity, it will take time.
  2. The value fluctuates (normally, +-5% but can be up to 10% at times)
  3. Read on the ‘Quick info’ tab about adjusting your deadline to compensate for changes i. revisit once a month for best results
  4. If you have overlapping plots it will also be lower so be aware of this (see question 33)
53( What pool should I join?
First of all, read question 9, after you have understood that it depends on the size (and how patient you are) select from the following list: https://www.ecomine.earth/burstpools/
54( What miner to use?
I use Blago’s miner, there are many out there but Blago’s works for me on CPU mining, it can be found in Qbundle.
55( What Wallet to use (I use windows)?
Qbundle: https://github.com/PoC-Consortium/Qbundle/releases/ guide: https://burstwiki.org/wiki/QBundle
56( What Wallet to use (Linux)?
https://package.cryptoguru.org/ for Debian and Ubuntu, for Mac. read:
https://www.ecomine.earth/macoswalletinstallguide/
57( Will i need to 'replot' after POC2 (second fork) happens?
No, there will be a tool which will optimise, but it is not CPU intensive (it basically re-shuffles your plot) and is just IO intensive. You do not need to replot.
TurboPlotter and https://github.com/PoC-Consortium/Utilities/tree/mastepoc1to2.pl are tools that will/can be used to actuate optimization, but PLEASE wait with optimization until after the hard fork.
58( Will the transaction fee always be 1 burst?
No, dynamic fees are coming in the next fork.

Avalanche Blockchain Project Officially Launches Today! (x-post from /r/meek)

Today I am proud to officially announce the Avalanche Project by Meek Inc, and the Avalanche Token Sale.
I am the lead developer on this project which has been in the pipeline for nearly two years.

What will Avalanche Blockchain do?

Our aim is to replace SAP within 10 years by a licence-free blockchain based solution for all corporations.
SAP is a multi-billion dollar software company that is the thorn in the side of every CTO or CIO in most of the world's global corporations. If they could replace it they would, but until now, there was no good alternative. Avalanche is that alternative.
OK that's the headline. Here's the history.
The project paper was written a while ago and came from price volatility problems that we had had with the Meek Bitcoin Payment Device - Snowflake - back in 2014.
We've been talking to industry since then (many of the worlds largest global players including Bayer, ExxonMobil, Carrefour and others.), and the results of those discussions are the project, made public today. I will be doing an AMA in the coming weeks.
We've been working on the alpha version of the network since late last year. Over the course of the next year we will be working on three essential functionalities described in our project document:

Avalanche Blockchain Coin details

Owners of the Avalanche coin effectively provide liquidity to corporations so that they can create their own functional currencies on the Avalanche network. To participate the corporations will coins from the market to create global corporate currencies, which they will use internally and externally and for accounting in real-time (hence replacing SAP).

Tokens Sale and the Genesis Block

Avalanche blockchain genesis block will allocate funds to everyone who has obtained XAI Tokens (XAIT), either by buying from the Sale Contract using Ether (sale contract address: 0x3C5753B9dE8c49101155a9b31116b965a5D82574 , ERC20 token address: 0x21E7017Ef5E3E17522f936c257d7438A8fa89579) or by buying off others who have the token.

!! IMPORTANT NOTE !!

The token contract will be killed when Avalanche mines the genesis block.
That means you can purchase and transfer tokens up until the genesis block, but after that the token contract will be locked forever. Why are we doing this?
Every address that contains XAI Tokens on Ethereum, at a to be determined block number will be credited with XAI on the real Avalanche Blockchain Network on the day it starts.
You can get your XAI Tokens on the ethereum network buying them from the sale contract directly. There is no specific end date to the sale, but it will also close when the Avalanche Genesis Block is mined.

pre-Alpha Software (no guarantees!)

I will be posting the Meek repo URL details in posts over the coming days.

Getting Involved

We need administrative support as well as technical. PM me or post over at meek

Discord Log from Ravencoin Open Developer Meeting - Oct 19, 2018

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:03 PM
Hello Everybody, sorry we're getting started a couple of minutes late today.Today we wanted to make sure that everybody was aware of the Bug Bounty program and discuss it.Has everybody seen the information at https://github.com/RavenProject/Ravencoin/wiki?GitHubRavenProject/RavencoinProject staging tree. Contribute to RavenProject/Ravencoin development by creating an account on GitHub.📷

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:06 PM

Yes. I'm working on it...📷1

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:07 PM

I have seen that @Hans_Schmidt Thank you for really digging into the code. You have found some really good ones.Did you get an address posted in the issues so we can reward you for your efforts?

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:08 PM

Yes I sent it to Tron and blondfrogs. Thanks.

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:08 PM

I got hans address, and updated the wiki accordingly

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:09 PM

Nice! thanks guys, we'll get that sent out today.

brianmct - Today at 2:09 PM

Wow that's a lot of RVN!

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:09 PM

The next one is proving harder to find. That is a good thing 📷

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:09 PM

Please @Scotty and @Hans_Schmidt look at the wiki, and make sure the address next to the issues you created is the correct address where you would like payment.(edited)

MSFTserver-mine more @ MinerMore - Today at 2:09 PM

just a heads up im renaming this channel to just development meetings

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:09 PM

We feel it's worth the amount for sure to find and fix those type of issues.

brianmct - Today at 2:10 PM

Probably shouldn't keep the addresses on the wiki, since it's publicly editable?

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:10 PM

@MSFTserver-mine more @ MinerMore okay

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:11 PM

We will look into the github wiki permissionsand verify addresses before sending payment

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:11 PM

Thats a good point, and reach out to the individuals directly to ensure it's their correct address.

brianmct - Today at 2:12 PM

Actually it's not publicly editable. My bad. Still good to confirm directly though

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:12 PM

Yes

brianmct - Today at 2:12 PM

Probably have people put their address on the issue when reporting it

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:12 PM

^^

brianmct - Today at 2:12 PM

Don't want any MITM attacks :P

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:13 PM

No we don't.

Chatturga - Today at 2:13 PM

Putting a public address out there is asking to get sent certain asset tokens when it goes live. 📷📷1

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:13 PM

Any questions about the issues that were found thus far?

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:14 PM

I verified that my address is correct.

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:14 PM

Thanks

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:15 PM

Will you send a dust send first to verify (for bitcoin we do that as standard procedure for large amounts)

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:15 PM

Yes, that is the process we follow also

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:15 PM

sounds good

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:16 PM

Just an FYI some of the developers were at the Free State Blockchain conference last week.We also spoke at the MIT Business schoolIt was great to see our community members there!

UserJonPizza™FlyToTheNorthRaven - Today at 2:17 PM

Are you guys 100% on the 31st? Ik prob been asked a million times but...

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:18 PM

Thanks to all that helped with the conference.📷1

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:18 PM

The current code base will start voting on the 31st.

Chatturga - Today at 2:18 PM

Yes Its in the code.

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:18 PM

Any other questions about the Bug Bounty?

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:19 PM

What's the plan for next formal release?

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:20 PM

Should be early next week, we are planning a 2.1.1 release, with the latest bug fixes in it.We thought we would give it a couple more days to see if any additional bugs are found.

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:21 PM

Agreed, there will be one more binary release before the end of the month.

[Master] Roshii - Today at 2:21 PM

Sorry late again

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:21 PM

I'm not pushing for the release, just asking. I prefer to have a few days to see if I can get my next attack attempt to work

SpyderDev - Today at 2:22 PM

@[Master] Roshii - were your ears burning?

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:22 PM

Yep. You got it, keep attacking the chain!

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:23 PM

Yes please we would encourage everybody to help us find additional chain splitting or consensus defects.Other defects are also welcome, just not part of the bounty at this point.

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:24 PM

It would be helpful to know if someone is methodically verifying that the fixes work and also cover the minor variations, because I am not doing that.

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:25 PM

Yes. I am personally verifying all bug fixes, and so are the other developers

SpyderDev - Today at 2:25 PM

We are also creatimg tests for them.

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:25 PM

Like I payed unique asset creation into the wrong burn address. But there are other variations. Your fix looks like it covers it all.

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:26 PM

That is correct. We appreciate the bugs found and expand off of them to fix all other small variations of them.

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:26 PM

Great. I focus on new angles.

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:26 PM

Prefect!

SpyderDev - Today at 2:26 PM

Please

Chatturga - Today at 2:27 PM

test 

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:27 PM

@Tron isn't able to be here but he wanted me to share this.
Hi All. I’m sorry I’m not able to make it to this development discussion. I’ve been invited to be on a Cryptocurrency and ICO/STO panel at the Federal Bar Council Fall Retreat. I've been informed that many of the attendees are judges from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals which is the Circuit Court for the state of NY. These presidentially appointed judges are just below the US Supreme Court and before whom the SEC and CFTC would be mere litigants. I’m on the panel with some heavyweight crypto and securities attorneys and my role will be talking primarily about the technology (blockchain, tokenized assets, smart contracts, etc.) while allowing the other distinguished panelists to address the legal aspects of this new technology. This is an amazing opportunity to introduce the audience to the best aspects of crypto-currencies and crypto-assets.

Pathfinder - Today at 2:28 PM

wow that's awesome

SpyderDev - Today at 2:28 PM

We are all hoping @Tron will not get arrested.

mapple - Today at 2:28 PM

yesand yes to the not arrested :))

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:29 PM

I told him the mask thing was probably a bad idea for that event...

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:29 PM

The Raven mask or the Guy Falkes?

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:29 PM

We need a Tron with judges Meme @PathfinderYes to both.

Skan - Today at 2:29 PM

ITS A TRAP

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:30 PM

LOL

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:30 PM

A Tron Trap?

mapple - Today at 2:30 PM

i was asked on telegram a few days ago about timeframes for all phases (currently announced) to be completed - are there estimates I've missed?I've properly looked through githubi've not lol

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:31 PM

We are hoping to complete the remaining phases by the end of Q1 but have provided no hard dates.

mapple - Today at 2:32 PM

OK - so march 2019 estimate if anyone asks again would be fair at the moment

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:33 PM

One of the topics I would like to cover for all our web developers is the ravencoin.com website.

gwrg - Today at 2:33 PM

Does it include Phase 7 which was added recently?

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:34 PM

That's not been fully thought through to this point so it's not likely.I wanted to make sure you all knew that Ravencoin.com is a community website, the source is posted and web developers are free to submit pull requests to make changes.

Vincent - Today at 2:35 PM

Chatturga had mentioned a plan to somehow modify the asset creation cost in the future...is that part of the qtr 1 plan?

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:36 PM

We'll be watching closely how the asset creation and RVN burn goes once it goes live.

Chatturga - Today at 2:37 PM

I did say that the rate is 500 RVN for now so that actual data can be gathered, which can then be applied to proposed changes. Speculative data just isnt enough.(edited)

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:37 PM

Anywho... The source for the Website is at https://github.com/RavenProject/ravenproject.github.ioGitHubRavenProject/ravenproject.github.ioRaven Project Website. Contribute to RavenProject/ravenproject.github.io development by creating an account on GitHub.📷

Pathfinder - Today at 2:38 PM

Tron's in there. Just have to look hard (like finding Waldo)

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:38 PM

@Pathfinder You are the best, I'm just saying....

Vincent - Today at 2:38 PM

i understand but pure economics will go into play. i will not harp on it here...there is plenty of time for this

Skan - Today at 2:38 PM

Ok good to know @ website, will spread that info

Vincent - Today at 2:38 PM

obvious my soapbox

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:39 PM

Thanks Skan!📷1Any questions about Ravencoin.com?

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:40 PM

I come to these meetings for @Pathfinder memes(edited)

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:40 PM

SO DO I!If I say no will you delete your post?(edited)📷Actually, if we don't have any further questions about the website that would be a great topic.

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:43 PM

@[Master] Roshii has been hard at work adding asset support to the mobile wallets.📷3You'll be able to see, transfer, receive assets.You'll also be able to create them right on your phone.

mapple - Today at 2:44 PM

awesome for small business use cases

Vincent - Today at 2:45 PM

will that only include RVN created assets or other currencies as well?

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:46 PM

The RVN wallets only support RVN and soon will support RVN assets.📷2Agreed!Any other questions about Mobile support?

russ - Today at 2:48 PM

any web wallets that support assets yet?

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:48 PM

That's a good question!

Chatturga - Today at 2:49 PM

@traysi -[MM Sysop]- Might be able to answer that.

Pathfinder - Today at 2:49 PM

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:49 PM

That's amazing.I think Pathfinder could get paid to make memes for a company...@Under Has done some great work migrating web based bitcoin tools to Raven.I would love to see a web dev kit that allowed web/mobile developers to easily incorporate Raven into their projects.

SpyderDev - Today at 2:51 PM

When is the meme bounty program?

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:51 PM

Just wondering- is anyone tracking use of post-2.04 client use on the mainnet? It would be good to know if the non-asset stuff is continuing to work without issues on main.

[Master] Roshii - Today at 2:52 PM

@RavencoinDev I have some ideas for mobile integration kit

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:52 PM

Everything seems to be in order on Mainnet.

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:52 PM

Awesome @[Master] RoshiiLet's open it up for General Q&A for the last 10 minutes. Anybody have a question they have been dying to ask?

Under - Today at 2:53 PM

I’d really like to know about the build system.The solution I use is pretty reliable.

cade - Today at 2:53 PM

What would you like to know about it?

Under - Today at 2:54 PM

I’d be glad to train you up on mine

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:54 PM

We are working to incorporate the work that you have put in there. Still struggling with the Mac build part of it.

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 2:54 PM

Do you track wallet version usage on main. Any idea how many people are using newer versions?

cade - Today at 2:54 PM

The current build system we're using is based on what you've doneJust modified to fit into our CI process

[Dev] Blondfrogs - Today at 2:55 PM

@Hans_Schmidt We don't have a rolling tally but you can use the explores to view node versions.

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:55 PM

We do check what's being run on the network periodically but don't have a dashboard type view into the version data.

Vincent - Today at 2:55 PM

is the burn rate going to be tracked and charted on the asset explorer?

Under - Today at 2:55 PM

Rather than incorporating it, it vanilla in a vanilla Ubuntu 18 box works pretty well. CI like Travis could run on a fully gitian build, which I’m glad to work on too

RavencoinDev - Today at 2:56 PM

@Vincent There was talk of creating an RPC call that would show how much has been burned and for what purpose.Anybody want to take a shot at writing that?

Under - Today at 2:56 PM

I’m in the process !Lol

Vincent - Today at 2:56 PM

be a great stat to watch

russ - Today at 2:56 PM

@Scotty made it📷1top notch

cade - Today at 2:58 PM

@Under We have processes and tools that are in use within our organization and we leverage those tools for all of our projects. We have taken the awesome work you've done and tailored it to fit within our toolsets.📷2

Under - Today at 2:59 PM

I can understand that, but I’d counter that the process I describe is simply a copy of bitcoins and allows for it to be replicated in a larger community of developer outside of the Medici teamIt makes the build process trustless and decentralized if it can be replicated by anyone.But I get why you have your ways of doing it.

Hans_Schmidt - Today at 3:00 PM

If you drop the burn address into the web explorer, it tells you how much went there.

Vincent - Today at 3:00 PM

charts are nicer📷2📷1

RavencoinDev - Today at 3:01 PM

I would like a burned endpoint that coinmarketcap can easily call to use in their circulating supply metric.

Vincent - Today at 3:01 PM

burn and rewards can only go one way.... 📷

RavencoinDev - Today at 3:02 PM

Alright, thank you all for being here today. Thank you for your support and for all your effort on Ravencoin platform!

Neo-Geo - Today at 3:02 PM

While we are aware of the dev team’s commitment to ASIC resistance, are there any assurances that RVN dev will find a solution to stay GPU exclusive for optimal decentralization? Monero’s commitment to fork every 6 months (currently on CryptoNightV8) has been wildly successful in keeping AMD’s cards pointing predominantly at their network. RVN is quickly replacing Ethereum as the defacto coin to mine for Nvidia owners (the world’s most popular video card), but the rise of FPGAs can ruin the incentive for GPU miners and lead to hash centralization.📷2

Vincent - Today at 3:02 PM

as a noob...glad to be part of this...great job by all

cade - Today at 3:03 PM

@Under We will be releasing our build process to the community

RavencoinDev - Today at 3:03 PM

Yes @Neo-Geo we are committed to ASIC resistance and we are watching Monero closely.Thanks again everybody. Now go find some BUGS!

Under - Today at 3:04 PM

Cool thanks guys
