RainBorgCore — This week I did some work on the RainBorgCore code to further make it usable by our community’s forks. I changed the code to allow reading a balance directly from a tip bot database if it’s hosted on the same server (so an endpoint needn’t be set up), fixed some timeout issues, reworked how the core logic works to hopefully minimize any CPU bottlenecks, and added additional configuration. On top of all that, I finally got around to doing a write-up on how she works and to hopefully provide some information on setting her up on your own server. See the readme/wiki on the GitHub repo. — Canti

TurtleCoin.lol — I redesigned the node map for the homepage. It display active nodes (seen in within in last 10 minutes) on a map of the world and draws currently random connections between them. The script that grabs the nodes does provide coordinates of known peers for each peer, so actual connections can be drawn with most likely a few edits on the client side. I will leave this for someone else :) — fexra

We have officially mined block 1 Million! We threw a hell of a party, rained oodles of TRTL to happy party goers, and had plenty of pepperoni stuffed crust to whether the storm! In this issue we tell you about the work that went in to making this week one of our most productive yet!

30 seconds * 1,000,000 blocks = 1 Awesome year! We are so happy to share this experience with you!30 seconds * 1,000,000 blocks = 1 Awesome year! We are so happy to share this experience with you!

Block 1,000,000! — A year ago if you’d asked us if we knew that the network would ever survive to see a million blocks, there’d be times where we’d have said that you’re crazy- but since then we’ve been lucky to meet over 16,000 new friends, gained 75 developers and welcomed 45 more contributors, with a large range of service providers and early adopters. To say that we are impressed and amazed would be an understatement, and if we said we haven’t had critics along the way would be a lie- but the redeeming fact about our project is that most of them ended up loving us in the end, and that’s what matters.

I’m looking forward to another year with you guys, and I’m thrilled to share this experience with you!

Sincerely,
RockSteady

Some quick stats about TurtleCoin…
In the past year we have processed 2,473,453 transactions, mined 29,618,767,601.47 TRTL at a current steady hashrate of 32MH/s. This amounts to 2.961885% of the total supply and a difficulty of 1,020,690,513. For an average block time of 30 seconds, we add about ~1,051,200 blocks to our chain every year, making us one of the fastest growing blockchains, with a network of 2,223 nodes. That’s 28.1268% more connectivity than our nearest sibling, Monero- with TRTL having a transaction time that’s 4x faster. While the chain is fast, our team is faster- we saw 75 community developers contribute to 88 code repositories, and pushing 1,174 commits into 446 pull requests. This year we watched our core software grow past 903,000 lines of code by itself.
We’ve been busy, but we’re just getting started, and want you to join us. You don’t have to know anything but your name and maybe some karaoke skills.
We still don’t care about price. Slow and steady, a Turtle always moves forward.

TRTL Services — TRTL Services provides the infrastructure and the tools for developers to build on-chain apps in an easy, fun and fast way on the TRTL Network. TRTL Services does this by offering access to a role-based access control RESTful API backed by an off-chain cache of your wallet. TRTL Services comes with a variety of tools, including: a push notification system; wallet monitoring and alert service; a dashboard with oversight and statistics; and a bundle of libraries in varies languages to get started right away. — Fexra

TurtlePay™ — Other than the overhauled block explorer, I’ve been hard at work building out modules to support Node.js/JS wallets. A lot of the ground work was already laid by other teams but there’s quite a bit of work to do here in refactoring code, documenting how it works, exposing public methods, etc. It’s quite a challenge; however, some of the most recent milestones are that I’m to the point where I can scan transactions and identify which outputs belong to a set of keys, create new key sets (addresses), decode integrated addresses, create integrated addresses, serialize transactions for the daemon, and a few small other things. I’m working on making sense of the ring signing that we currently use now to make sure that the code is well documented and makes sense for everyone. — IBurnMyCD

TurtleEDU — The first class is complete, and Fexra is about done with the skinning of the site, and we’re still ready to launch our first Beta Semester on December 9th, our 1 year birthday! For those of you’ve who’ve typed *student in the TurtleCoin Discord chat to give yourself the "Student" role, you already have access to the relevant chatrooms where you can pass on information about bugs etc so we can make everything air tight for the next class. These rooms will be active on Dec 8th.
The first class I made was to teach users how to be knowledgeable and proficient with the core suite. I aim for each class to take 15-30 minutes at most, and would like to "Gamify" it a little bit with unique badges for when you complete the class. After beta phase has completed, and we've fine tuned the processes with your advice, the next class will turn a knowledgeable TurtleCoin user into a junior TurtleCoin dev.
Stay tuned and please consider contributing your time as a student in the first beta semester of TurtleEDU to help us put the best foot forward at the official public launch! Thanks :) - RockSteady

QuickStart

TurtleCoin Graphical Daemon — A while back I had the idea to throw a Qt GUI on anything that’d let me, and I started on a graphical wrapper for our daemon that would allow regular Joe Blow to run a public daemon from their house and collect some extra TRTL. So I made some headway with it and got stuck, and luckily right around the same time, hurricane LabayLabay ran through and completed everything I wanted to do and more! Recently there’s been quite a big change merged in, all thanks to LabayLabay, and we need to testers to try it out. If you have comments or suggestions, please leave an issue in the repository I’ll link below. — RockSteady

Celestial Cash — Soft Shell implementation that is starting to look abandoned . This is more of a Call out to the TRTL community. Celestial started off well with some promising work, then Dora the Explorer went on a walk about, with no communication or succession plan. I have logged a github issue around nodes losing sync as I really want to see AMITY and CELS kick ass and be implemented in TRTL. I have been a good turtle and created some workaround Watch dogs (shell and python3) using the API for smart restarting of the daemon (workaround for the sync issue with miners) and docker files to as to become a minor contributor. Although i would like to know whats going on as you were a superstar when around Gerry although this aint no small feat takes work and teams. Give us a DM if you want to discuss things, but my best advice is to provide some comms and take the pressure of yourself if you need to there is no rush. Anyone else speak to Dora/Gerry before they went silent? Hoping Gerry Mosha is working diligently on the White paper or relaxing and figuring out a plan. just after some communication if this is still going? Time is TRTLs. Also Discussion around what to do with this if it is abandoned, I can help with minor tasks and cut teeth on some C but maybe there should be a discussion of what to do in the the worst case scenario. Aside from that , Also working on my python skills which is good fun but hardly worth reporting on. Planning on writing up the turtlecoind python pip module for pip (2) just for the hell of build it out as a learning exercise and for the compatability with RHEL systems and such. Should have some good time to work solidly on Krang over Holiday season and try out some fun things. Also calling out a risk, i just bought FarCry 5 if anyone want a game, That is all. Have a great week everyone. — Slash-atello

Vendible — Vendible’s vision is to be the solution for the future global economy by building an all-encompassing commerce ecosystem. We are completing an integrated eCommerce payment gateway which offers merchants access to traditional credit and debit payments alongside Bitcoin, PIVX, IoP, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, Monero, and Turtlecoin. Further developments will include a multi-currency wallet with brick-and-mortar POS functionality, a teller system for merchants which will facilitate exchange of digital assets, savings accounts, payroll and budgeting functionality, P2P payments, and more. We want to see adoption in communities which have cross-border ties as we see a tremendous opportunity for both merchants and users of the platform to transfer value. Vendible-to-Vendible transactions will not incur fees. We are led by founders and organization leaders from PIVX, IoP, Libertaria, and Sentinel and are creating a decentralized governance model where the people using the platform will decide the future of its development through a tokenized system which rewards use. — Memnon

As some of you turtles may know, TurtleWallet is powered by TRTL.Services, which provides the backend logic and automation for creating addresses and processing payments and comes with an frontend API. The last month and a half I been extensively testing the platform with the help of TurtleWallet, which is currently the only active app build on top of this.

In the coming days, I will publish a detailed article dedicated to TRTL.Services — with all its upcoming features and nifty tools, but for this article I will primarly focus on TurtleWallet. I’m very excited to report that since the launch date of TurtleWallet (39 days ago), we have had no major incidents or bugs to report. However, as you all know this does not mean that there was a lot of room for improvement! Hence, this week I will be upgrading TurtleWallet and TRTL.Service and wanted to share some screenshots.

Statistics (39 days)
 — 309 users
 — 386 accounts
 — 7,181 transactions
 — 69,596,355.10 TRTL processed in payments
 — 311,383.99 TRTL in collected service fees
 — 1,357,557.81 TRTL in operation costs

New Features + Fixes:
 — Export sub-address keys support
 — Activity details (modal overview)
 — Graph bug fix + design improvement
 — Accurate conversion to 12 decimals for in total of 50 cryptocurrencies, fiat currencies and assets.
 — Recaptcha on login / register
 — Rate limiter on transfers
 — Account Oversight UI improvement
 — Dependency + library upgrades (including client side)
 — Improved transaction confirmation tracking

rainborg — I just wanted to give a brief update on RainBorg, as I know a few of you noticed she’s gone through some changes recently. Originally I was hosting her on a GCP server that I could no longer afford to run, so a member of our community stepped in to run her. Once they could no longer run her either, she went down for 2 weeks or so while looking for a new host. Thankfully Z stepped in and he now runs her! Beyond hosting, she’s also been getting some updates over time. A few weeks back she was updated to RainBorgCore (AKA RainBorg 2.0), which gives cross-platform support, and since then I’ve been slowly adding and changing things here and there to make her be more adaptable to our community’s forked coins that are starting to use the tip bot for their own coins. Once she’s fully ready for primetime, I’ll be ahead and do a small write-up on how to deploy her as well as tip bot for other coins. Also, while I’m here writing, here are her current top stats:
Total TRTL Sent: 7,203,876.8 TRTL
Total Tips Sent: 53,097
Average Tip: 135.67 TRTL

Traveling around Australia — We are currently traveling around Australia showing people on the road and around where ever we go Turtle Coin. Since embarking on this expedition we had had truck drivers call us on the radio and ask what is a Turtle Coin and it has also been a conversation starter in some caravan parks where people are curious what a Turtle Coin is, some people have been interested and some not so interested once they find out it’s crypto related. If you are in Australia and have seen the van gives us a shout on discord and let us know. Later on in our travels we plan to stop at a Turtle breeding beach and see if we can either leave a sticker with them and maybe donate some turtles to some turtles. — aneki

lite-blocks — Last week I have detailed you guys what are lite-blocks and how do they work.. and here is the update in its development.. I have finished the necessary functions required to handle lite-blocks and request any missing transactions.. The only left-over thing is to add CLI-option to activate lite-blocks and logic to determine which peers support lite-blocks and which do not.. I hope with the help of iburnmycd, I can complete those things within no time..(bcoz he was responsible for the code which kicked unsupported nodes and also for the new CLI-options which will be in the next release) — rashedmyt

Rewriting all the things! — Now that I finished rewriting the wallet backend, I decided to start rewriting turtle-service, to use the new backend. I found a nice HTTP server library, and stuff was going well, but I was hitting a segfault when closing a wallet and reopening a new one.
Basically what was going on is the NodeRpcProxy takes a reference to some logger objects, and when we destroy the wallet instance, they go out of scope. Normally, the NodeRpcProxy would be destroyed as well, however, since the code is a bit dodgy, the shutdown() routine doesn’t really work.
To get round this, instead of waiting for it to shutdown, I simply detached the thread, leaving it running in the background to shutdown in it’s own time. However, since it takes references to these loggers, which are now out of scope, it crashes when trying to write a message to them. I attempted a fix, but then I got an even weirder error which I couldn’t figure out how to fix.
I said screw it, I’ll just rewrite the NodeRpcProxy then. I haven’t though of a name for it yet, so I’m calling it Nigel. It shouldn’t be too tricky to use, since I can use the same nice HTTP library I’m using, and a nice JSON library. Hopefully, then Valgrind (a memory checker) will help me find bugs — When you run it currently, the code has so many bugs it prints out a few hundred a second so you can’t find out what’s wrong :(
Back to the API — This will hopefully be a lot nicer for developers to use than current turtle-service. For one, you’ll open/import wallets via the API. This has a massive bonus of you not having to parse log files to find out if the wallet opened successfully or not.
Second, you’ll be able to swap nodes without having to close turtle-service. This will allow for richer experiences where the software can detect if your node appears to have gone offline, and can offer or automatically swap to another node.
It’s also using a more REST-like API — Thanks to Iburnmycd for helping me with this. I’m using Swagger (http://editor.swagger.io/) for the documentation — nice find Fexra — Which along with generating a really nice UI, will also generate API wrappers in something like 40 different programming languages for you — super cool! — Zpalm

Vendible — Vendible’s vision is to be the solution for the future global economy by building an all-encompassing commerce ecosystem. We are completing an integrated eCommerce payment gateway which offers merchants access to traditional credit and debit payments alongside Bitcoin, PIVX, IoP, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, Monero, and Turtlecoin. Further developments will include a multi-currency wallet with brick-and-mortar POS functionality, a teller system for merchants which will facilitate exchange of digital assets, savings accounts, payroll and budgeting functionality, P2P payments, and more. We want to see adoption in communities which have cross-border ties as we see a tremendous opportunity for both merchants and users of the platform to transfer value. Vendible-to-Vendible transactions will not incur fees. We are led by founders and organization leaders from PIVX, IoP, Libertaria, and Sentinel and are creating a decentralized governance model where the people using the platform will decide the future of its development through a tokenized system which rewards use. — Memnon

TurtlePay™: Fun, Fast, & Easy Crypto Payments

0*hyfYMxnnNEPilC9Y.png0*tFi_lG3U3CJO4oQT.png0*6WiNc7eWVCCfKuLu.png

As some of you turtles may know, TurtleWallet is powered by TRTL.Services, which provides the backend logic and automation for creating addresses and processing payments and comes with an frontend API. The last month and a half I been extensively testing the platform with the help of TurtleWallet, which is currently the only active app build on top of this.

In the coming days, I will publish a detailed article dedicated to TRTL.Services — with all its upcoming features and nifty tools, but for this article I will primarly focus on TurtleWallet. I’m very excited to report that since the launch date of TurtleWallet (39 days ago), we have had no major incidents or bugs to report. However, as you all know this does not mean that there was a lot of room for improvement! Hence, this week I will be upgrading TurtleWallet and TRTL.Service and wanted to share some screenshots.

Statistics (39 days)
 — 309 users
 — 386 accounts
 — 7,181 transactions
 — 69,596,355.10 TRTL processed in payments
 — 311,383.99 TRTL in collected service fees
 — 1,357,557.81 TRTL in operation costs

New Features + Fixes:
 — Export sub-address keys support
 — Activity details (modal overview)
 — Graph bug fix + design improvement
 — Accurate conversion to 12 decimals for in total of 50 cryptocurrencies, fiat currencies and assets.
 — Recaptcha on login / register
 — Rate limiter on transfers
 — Account Oversight UI improvement
 — Dependency + library upgrades (including client side)
 — Improved transaction confirmation tracking

rainborg — I just wanted to give a brief update on RainBorg, as I know a few of you noticed she’s gone through some changes recently. Originally I was hosting her on a GCP server that I could no longer afford to run, so a member of our community stepped in to run her. Once they could no longer run her either, she went down for 2 weeks or so while looking for a new host. Thankfully Z stepped in and he now runs her! Beyond hosting, she’s also been getting some updates over time. A few weeks back she was updated to RainBorgCore (AKA RainBorg 2.0), which gives cross-platform support, and since then I’ve been slowly adding and changing things here and there to make her be more adaptable to our community’s forked coins that are starting to use the tip bot for their own coins. Once she’s fully ready for primetime, I’ll be ahead and do a small write-up on how to deploy her as well as tip bot for other coins. Also, while I’m here writing, here are her current top stats:
Total TRTL Sent: 7,203,876.8 TRTL
Total Tips Sent: 53,097
Average Tip: 135.67 TRTL

Traveling around Australia — We are currently traveling around Australia showing people on the road and around where ever we go Turtle Coin. Since embarking on this expedition we had had truck drivers call us on the radio and ask what is a Turtle Coin and it has also been a conversation starter in some caravan parks where people are curious what a Turtle Coin is, some people have been interested and some not so interested once they find out it’s crypto related. If you are in Australia and have seen the van gives us a shout on discord and let us know. Later on in our travels we plan to stop at a Turtle breeding beach and see if we can either leave a sticker with them and maybe donate some turtles to some turtles. — aneki

lite-blocks — Last week I have detailed you guys what are lite-blocks and how do they work.. and here is the update in its development.. I have finished the necessary functions required to handle lite-blocks and request any missing transactions.. The only left-over thing is to add CLI-option to activate lite-blocks and logic to determine which peers support lite-blocks and which do not.. I hope with the help of iburnmycd, I can complete those things within no time..(bcoz he was responsible for the code which kicked unsupported nodes and also for the new CLI-options which will be in the next release) — rashedmyt

Rewriting all the things! — Now that I finished rewriting the wallet backend, I decided to start rewriting turtle-service, to use the new backend. I found a nice HTTP server library, and stuff was going well, but I was hitting a segfault when closing a wallet and reopening a new one.
Basically what was going on is the NodeRpcProxy takes a reference to some logger objects, and when we destroy the wallet instance, they go out of scope. Normally, the NodeRpcProxy would be destroyed as well, however, since the code is a bit dodgy, the shutdown() routine doesn’t really work.
To get round this, instead of waiting for it to shutdown, I simply detached the thread, leaving it running in the background to shutdown in it’s own time. However, since it takes references to these loggers, which are now out of scope, it crashes when trying to write a message to them. I attempted a fix, but then I got an even weirder error which I couldn’t figure out how to fix.
I said screw it, I’ll just rewrite the NodeRpcProxy then. I haven’t though of a name for it yet, so I’m calling it Nigel. It shouldn’t be too tricky to use, since I can use the same nice HTTP library I’m using, and a nice JSON library. Hopefully, then Valgrind (a memory checker) will help me find bugs — When you run it currently, the code has so many bugs it prints out a few hundred a second so you can’t find out what’s wrong :(
Back to the API — This will hopefully be a lot nicer for developers to use than current turtle-service. For one, you’ll open/import wallets via the API. This has a massive bonus of you not having to parse log files to find out if the wallet opened successfully or not.
Second, you’ll be able to swap nodes without having to close turtle-service. This will allow for richer experiences where the software can detect if your node appears to have gone offline, and can offer or automatically swap to another node.
It’s also using a more REST-like API — Thanks to Iburnmycd for helping me with this. I’m using Swagger (http://editor.swagger.io/) for the documentation — nice find Fexra — Which along with generating a really nice UI, will also generate API wrappers in something like 40 different programming languages for you — super cool! — Zpalm

TurtleCities — Wow, it has been a big week for all of you that put up homepages on TurtleCities! For those of you that don’t know, we made a just for fun project last week that lets people sign up for a single floppy disk worth of web hosting for an old school home page and to show the internet just how cool you can be with only 1.44mb to express yourself. I’m still deciding on “upgrades” to offer, but currently thinking about doing a “Dual density floppy upgrade” for 2,000 TRTL, and I’d like to see what adding some shell accounts to certain users would be like. The obvious next step is to release the BBS system I’ve been tinkering with…. But that’s another story :D -RockSteady

TurtleEDU — I’ve completed all of the course material for the first course on TurtleEDU, which I’m going to call “TurtleCoin 101”. It’s a class that will take someone who is new to cryptocurrencies and turn them into a certified TurtleCoin user by the time they finish. It doesnt take long, and the class is divided up into easy sections. I’d like to add some finishing touches, but I get the feeling I may be overdoin it, so video/audio content might wait until after the beta launch for people with the “student” role. Remember, if you’re interested in being a trial user of TurtleEDU, be sure to type *student in the discord to automatically enroll you in Turtle School :D
The next classes I'd like to work on are "Contributor 101" which will guide the user through how to use Github for version control to create and modify guides and wikis, and then "Developer 101" which will be a guided tutorial to using the TurtleCoin API using the docs on https://api-docs.turtlecoin.lol

lite-blocks — This is the TRTL version of XMR’s Fluffy Blocks which is being implemented to increase the propagation of blocks in the network in a much efficient and faster way. Work is progressing slowly day by day as I am in middle of my semester exams.
So what are lite-blocks? We all know that new transactions propagate throughout the network and are stored in the transaction pool of every daemon.. whenever a miner finds a block the daemon removes those transactions from the pool and adds them to the block and then propagate that block throughout the network.. you see transactions are a heavy thing.. they make up most of the size of the block.. it is just an overhead to send the transactions again which the other daemon already has.. also since it increases the payload size it would take time to propagate it throughout the network.. To solve this problem instead of sending the block with all those transactions we just send their hashes which are much less in size.. the receiver checks for those transactions in its transaction pool.. if it has all of them it creates the block by itself and adds it to its database.. but if it couldn’t find any of those transactions.. it requests the sender to those missing transactions only.. hence the lite-blocks essentially contain the block header and the transaction hashes which are present in it or it contains the block header along with the transaction hashes and the requested transactions.. this technique will help reduce the payload for the propagation of block throughout the network and hence result in much healthy network and I guess less orphans too — rashedmyt

TurtlePay™ — Quite a bit of progress has been made this week in the Blockchain Data Collection Agent (BDCA) with the sole purpose of collecting and caching the blockchain in a database friendly way. Building a strong backend distribution system for TurtlePay™ is paramount as the scale and flexibility is at stake. Returning data as quickly as possible gives us the ability to scale to massive unprecedented levels seldom seen in Blockchain applications. Initial testing has shown the ability to provide data to the wallets at a rate of about 100,000 blocks per minute. The payloads provided to wallets are substantially reduced in size to include just the needed information for scanning for funds sent to our wallet(s). As a byproduct of the streamlined payloads it is possible to create a fast, efficient, and versatile block explorer built on this database backend. Look forward to more information to come in the coming days and weeks and keep up with the latest information in #dev_turtlepay — IBurnMyCd

WalletBackend / WalletGreen rewrite — Finished rewriting zedwallet this week with the new wallet-backend I’ve been working on everything seems to work well. Apparently it has some issues on Windows. Shouldn’t be too much effort to fix, though. I started writing some documentation on the wallet file encryption format, and the wallet JSON format. You can get that here — https://github.com/turtlecoin/wallet-file-interaction if you’re interested in interacting with wallet files manually, perhaps to build your own wallet backend implementation. I’ve got some examples of how to open a wallet file up there, currently in C# and C++. If you’ve got a favorite language and you think you’re likely to want to be able to open wallets without the help of an RPC interface, let me know, and I can probably code up an example for that language too. Next I need to get turtle-service rewritten, so you can make API calls to it from all your favorite languages. Oh — I finished writing that article I was talking about on how transactions work. Just giving it a bit of a review then it should be ready to publish. Thanks to IBMCD for reviewing my code :)) — Zpalm

Thanks for reading.

This week we all became game streamers on Twitch Turtle, and rode our time machines back to the 90’s to see what kind of websites we could build on a floppy! We’re on track to hit 13,000 users in the Discord chat soon, join us! chat.turtlecoin.lol

Developer Community Updates

TwitchTurtle — This week, I tried TwitchTurtle as a streamer. I played ARK Survival for the normal amount of time, and got a few thousand TRTL in tips (if youd like to join Tribe of Turtles, we’re on ragnarok pvp official 61). In all, it was a fun experience. Streamlabs makes it really easy with their own personal spin on OBS, a popular screencaster program we use to capture the screen. I was up and raining in about 6 or 7 minutes. One thing that’s cool is that DSAnon is adding in the messaging functionality for custom tip messages into Shellnet so you dont have to set up box turtle on your own to send a tip with a message via the blockchain. There’s room for improvement, but as a brand new integration, I’d be skeptical if there weren’t any wrinkles to smooth out. Watter has done a great job! Very fun! — Rock

TwitchTurtle

TurtleCities — I had been toying with the idea of making some type of user homepages for our regulars in the chat. I was inspired by webrings of homepages on sites like geocities, angelfire, and expages, those types of sites from the 90’s. While I didn’t build an entire frontend for WYSIWYG design, I did create a system that allows me to provision users manually who get a 1.44mb FTP account with no shell access, and a homepage url like https://pages.turtlecoin.lol/~username. The account gets created manually, and the user uses something like filezilla to connect via FTP and upload up to 1 floppy of web space. I suppose the next step is some type of shell account or BBS. I’d like to make it a paid service so you can get the page for free, and then upgrade to a dual density floppy or add shell access down the road. A lot of it is still up in the air waiting for someone to abuse it. I’d also like to automate account creation, as I’m currently using a google form and webmin. What’s cool is that I built a Bash script that generates the main page every 30 seconds server side and updates a list with a bunch of system specs and links to the latest modified pages. — Rock

It’s like fitting together a bunch of puzzle pieces that we didn’t even realize were puzzle pieces :) It’s definitely an exciting project and I’m looking forward to what others can build based upon the services the project will offer. — IBurnMyCD

TwitchTurtle — TwitchTurtle is a fast, simple, and secure way to donate to twitch streamers. Over the past weeks, there have been many improvements, such as a docs site at https://docs.twitchturtle.com/ and many improvements to the web dashboard. Adding messages have never been easier with the new Shellnet integration, you can see more at the docs site. Thank you to everyone helping this project live and grow! — Watt3r

Krang — Been too busy with work and social the last few weeks. Doing nothing worth mentioning apart from starting mining some Soft-Shell coins and that is looking good, love a good solo mine with no pools, Cant wait to unleash that into the TRTL network. Today I’m working on adding more customization in Terraform and getting back into the groove of things, probably take a look at turtle.services and ibmcd node.js automation. Getting Schwifty. — Slash-atello

Walletgreen / turtle-service rewrite — Good progress this week on the rewrite. I got fusion transactions working, which are essentially a standard transaction, but they have a few rules required to allow them to be zero fee. With some help from iburnmycd I implemented a nice algorithm, which should be able to pick the best inputs to optimize together. Pretty much everything on the backend is complete, minus some rare crashes which I’m still debugging :( I started rewriting zedwallet using the new backend, to help me figure out where stuff is broken or could do with a rework. So far, it’s nearly complete, and has helped me find nearly all the bugs. *Hopefully* we will see it being used in a release after not too long. Since the wallet no longer uses some hacky dispatcher stuff, we can freely do everything on separate threads. With the current implementation, you have to update the wallet sync progress only on the main thread. To work around this, current zedwallet has a pretty ugly method, where it launches a thread to wait for input, and refreshes in the background whilst no input is coming, which is hard to follow, and not very performant. With the rewrite, we just attach to the event handler, and print out the transactions as they come to us, with a simple flag to ensure we’re not printing in the middle of a command, like transferring. Once everything is polished, this will hopefully make it a lot more trivial to add new features to wallets, with a sane, readable backend. I’d love to see some more core contributors — C++ isn’t that scary when you get into it! Oh, forget to mention — scan height works a lot better now — instead of starting at zero, and scanning the blocks below the height ‘quickly’ — it just skips those blocks, and starts right at the height you want to scan from. Still haven’t got around to writing that article on how transactions work… — zpalm

TurtleStash — WhassupZA has really been championing this project. Currently there’s a few kinks to work out, but you can create wallets with seeds and read transactions as they come in, but there’s a weird timeout issue when you try to send them. This should work itself out soon, and it’s really cool to see the progress. Plenteum and Masari team have done the entire project conversion for TRTL and it’s been great watching things come together. Just a reminder, TurtleStash is a website running the clientless web wallet forked from Masari. This is important because it is a webwallet that allows the user to own their own keys and not depend on a third party to run the software. — rock

Folks, an unfortunate consequence of running a really great pool is that you attract more miners. Unfortunately for one pool, they’ve far exceeded a share of the network than what is healthy for all of us, so I’m asking you today to move.

0*cJQWOeOAl93rgwEm.png

This pool is making efforts to get it taken care of but this type of action needs to be done right more than it needs to be done quickly. They’re already putting together an automated solution to solve it, but in the days since the announcement, the share of the network has only increased. The reason for the delay is legit, so nobody is being greedy, but at a certain point we have to step in and do some helping.

If you or someone you know of is mining on this pool, especially if they have a 10kH or greater hashrate, please ask them to move. Every bit helps. If you are in a mining chat room or conversation, please ask other miners to pitch in and put a few GPU’s on other pools.

We will never ask a pool operator to piss in their own cheerios to help the network, because that is not a fair consequence of doing a really good job. I am asking you guys today to help us. Thanks.

TurtleCoin Has Integrated With StreamLabs!

I’ve been teasing at this announcement for a few weeks now on Twitter, and I’ve heard guesses all over the place for what it could be. Finally I can give you guys the news about a TurtleCoin feature that nobody else in our space has yet. Starting today, you can one click enable TRTL crypto tips on your Twitch.tv streams and start taking money immediately! I was so excited about this news for you guys that I wanted to interview the creator himself, Watter. I know you guys will enjoy this one :)

0*h8kkTWgVc7njWcqO.png

RockSteady

Watter, Thanks again for agreeing to this, I know you’re really busy. I wanted to get an interview with you to announce TwitchTurtle. I’m sure a lot of people would like to know about a TurtleCoin integration with StreamLabs for Twitch streamers. I think creators will really appreciate being able to take tips in TurtleCoin, and likewise I think their viewers and patrons will be a lot more likely to send TRTL since it’s so easy to mine and send to your friends. If you don’t mind, tell us a little bit about how you got the idea for TwitchTurtle, and how long did it take to get to where you are now?

Watter

Thank you rock for inviting me to this interview, it’s my pleasure to be here. TwitchTurtle is a new payment integration with StreamLabs, it provides a simple way for Twitch and Youtube streamers to receive donations fast, securely, and without the fear of fake donations. I got the idea of making TwitchTurtle when I was watching a streamer, and I wanted to donate to him in TurtleCoin. The first version of this project was clunky and required the Streamer to download a program to get it working, now with the new and improved version, you just sign in with StreamLabs, and it does the rest of the work for you! This project has been in development for a while now, the first Git commit was Aug 3. I wanted to get it right, and so I went through every line of code with my helpful co-worker, @Chris Crypto. Now, we’re ready to accept tips at https://twitchturtle.com/.

0*Tn4T83FIQOGrBMI-.png

RockSteady

I know with Twitch or with YouTube, when someone tips you, usually if it’s a real tip you get that money at the end of the month. How long does it take on TwitchTurtle from the moment someone is tipped to the moment they can spend their TRTL?

Watter

One of the advantages of using the TurtleCoin blockchain to donate is the overall speed. Tips show up on stream faster, you can withdraw tips into your personal balance instantly, and for your viewers, it’s fast to set up. With TwitchTurtle, you have control over your funds. You don’t have to worry about chargebacks, or chargeback fees, all TwitchTurtle donations are final. Fake donations are a thing of the past with TwitchTurtle, before they show up on stream, tips are confirmed through the TurtleCoin blockchain so whenever an alert shows up, you know its legit.

RockSteady

So walk me through step by step with a quick short bullet list how easy it is for the Twitch streamers reading this article to get started with TwitchTurtle. Where do we start?

Image result for youtube gaming

Watter

Setting up TwitchTurtle is designed to be simple and painless. All you have to do is go to http://new.twitchturtle.com/ and it will create an account linked with your StreamLabs account. Now your new account is setup! All you have to do is share the “public address” to your viewers and they can start donating. If you want, you can also add some info about what TurtleCoin is and send your viewers to https://convert.twitchturtle.com/ for them to add messages to their donations! If you have any questions about the setup process, come on by the discord help server at http://chat.twitchturtle.com/. In that server there is also free advertising, so you can get more TwitchTurtle followers and grow your fanbase!

0*K94LvMBhqG44xINK.png

RockSteady

That’s pretty cool, it sounds like there’s not much keeping someone from accepting crypto tips on Twitch now. If you could get any streamer to use your service, who would it be?

Watter

You! The person who is reading this, We want you to start streaming with TwitchTurtle! Anyone can make an account, and start streaming in the next 5 seconds and receive tips.

0*HRwP-kuoalF1dbCN

RockSteady

I think that about covers it, is there anything else you want to say?

Watter

Yes! Theres so many people in my life I would like to thank my TwitchTurtle supporters, who have been patiently waiting for this release for about 3 months now, so huge shout out to them for believing in me! I would also like to thank the first streamers who used TwitchTurtle, Yoma97, Sajo8, and CryptoDota, thanks for being early adopters! I also am partnered with turtlenode.online, a fast TurtleCoin node which powers TwitchTurtle. I want to thank you rock, for inviting me to this interview, and to the entire TurtleCoin community for the support. You guys rock!

Also, I just wanted to say it really means a lot to be the one of the youngest people interviewed on TurtleCoin, I learned so much from this project and will never forget any of the countless people in this discord as I move onward in life.

WalletGreen / turtle-service rewrite — Forgot to give updates in the last few round-ups, lol. Work continues on my wallet rewrite. The most notable features I’ve implemented recently are transactions.

Transactions are surprisingly tricky to get working in cryptonote coins, and the way they work is pretty darn confusing! I plan on writing an article on this at some point, because it took me quite some time to work out from the current code, and it would be nice to have a good explanation written down somewhere.

I still need to implement fusion transactions, but I think this will be pretty trivial, as they are essentially just a standard transaction with some constraints.

Also implemented were some poor man’s events. They’re not a first class citizen in C++, but we can make some pretty decently working events which allow us to fire off a chunk of code when something happens, such as a transaction being received, or the wallet syncing.

zpalm's even handlerzpalm’s even handler

Another cool thing is the wallet file format (partially shown in the first image). It’s all nicely structured JSON (once decrypted with the password). JSON works in pretty much every language so this will help programmers interact with wallets in other languages with more ease. Furthermore, the wallet encryption is done using AES encryption, with passwords hashed with PBKDF2. This is both present in many programming languages, and the use of PBKDF2 allows to make brute forcing wallet passwords a slow operation.

I recently tested syncing my personal wallet with this rewrite, and I was glad to see the balances matched up exactly. Also worth noting is that the file was only 16MB compared to 57MB using a standard wallet program, a space saving of over 3.5x!

Finally, I implemented node fees. That one was pretty simple to do. I need to add some code to be able to correctly lock and unlock funds when they are moving from the mempool into a block, or from the mempool back into your wallet, if they get cancelled for some reason. Once that’s done, I can start work on adding all the API calls needed to build wallets. — zpalm

turtlecoin-rpc-php — What’s up turtles! v2.0 of the PHP RPC wrapper was pushed last week. Prior to this release, this wrapper could talk with walletd/turtle-service. In 2.0, support was added for all of the turtlecoind RPC methods, and the name of the composer package was changed from turtlecoin/turtlecoin-walletd-rpc-php to turtlecoin/turtlecoin-rpc-php. The PHP examples in the API docs (https://api-docs.turtlecoin.lol/) were updated to reflect these changes. This update also includes a few new methods to make it a little easier and cleaner to work with the response details (i.e. $response->toJson() or $response->toArray() or $response->results() to access the results field in the response as an array). Check the repo README for details (hook us up with some GitHub stars while you're there :D). More to come. - tmac25

So far it is going well; however, I will be off for 2 weeks because of some personal business and I won’t be able to have access to computers. I included a screen shot of how the project looks in the git repo.

Sajo has approached me and I am glad that we can work together, because in the following 2 weeks, this project will not just sit there. I will be back soon and I want to encourage everyone to learn how to code and join this wave of massive software engineer demand.

Trtl.rocks — I’ve been working on some large, mainly architectural, changes to the website. I initially chose to use JSONB to store the node and pool data in the db because I wasn’t quite sure what data would be useful. This decision has not only caused the db to be incredibly large, but also makes it more difficult to add new columns. Now that I think I have a clear idea of where I want to go, I am doing away with the JSONB and storing the data in the appropriate columns. I’ve completed the nodes section and will begin working on the pool data soon. I will also be adding pagination, per page quantity limiting, and fuzzy search to the node and pool tables as well as node fees to the node table. I am hoping to push the new code and have changes live in the next week or two. There will probably be a period where the historical data is missing until I am able to write a script to parse out the data and upload in the new format. — andrew | trtl.rocks

turtle-completo — I have rewritten the local turtle explorer using python and kivy frame work. Initially I just wanted to find a good GUI framework to make a turtle wallet, then I was looking into kivy for its crossplatform feature. So I thought I could move the local explorer to kivy first, then start developing the turtle wallet that I wanted to add on to the local explorer. The turtle-completo project looks better and it is more dynamic in terms of searching behavior, and it is faster than the previous local turtle explorer, though I know there is still a lot room for improvement. (I admit my code is a bit messy, and I probably forgot to remove some unused lines, I will get back to that later and clean it up) The turtle wallet is still under development. If anyone that wants to join the party and make a “project completo” with me, just DM me on discord.

GUI Node — I got the gui node working with the help of Z and ibmcd. The purpose of the GUI node is that home users need to be able to run public nodes on their home computers to avoid centralization with AWS and other cloud providers. A simple port forward is all you need. The chain is getting big enough to where it makes sense to run on home hardware rather than a hosted server. Currently you can start the daemon and define a price and fee wallet. The roadblock I’m having is kind of stupid. I’m trying to assign the value of the fee when entered to the QProcess parameter. It sounds really simple but I’m just dumb when it comes to Qt. -Rock

Web Wallet — Now that we’re at a point on our fork that we can release, we’re shifting focus back to the web wallet. In progress at the moment is the ability for the webwallet to connect directly to a node (private node). The first step of this is to create some new RPC calls in the daemon to allow the web wallet to retreive transactions directly (thanks @ZPalmTree who’s already done some work on this), this involves some optimisation and stripping of data we don’t need and then we will update the web-wallet’s RPC calls to go direct to node so we can drop the background caching process in the web wallet. The final challenge with this is to ensure that the web-wallet, on an HTTPS interface can connect directly to the node on an HTTP interface. -WhassupZA | Plenteum

It sounds really simple but I’m just dumb when it comes to Qt. -Rock

Web Wallet — Now that we’re at a point on our fork that we can release, we’re shifting focus back to the web wallet. In progress at the moment is the ability for the webwallet to connect directly to a node (private node). The first step of this is to create some new RPC calls in the daemon to allow the web wallet to retreive transactions directly (thanks @ZPalmTree who’s already done some work on this), this involves some optimisation and stripping of data we don’t need and then we will update the web-wallet’s RPC calls to go direct to node so we can drop the background caching process in the web wallet. The final challenge with this is to ensure that the web-wallet, on an HTTPS interface can connect directly to the node on an HTTP interface. -WhassupZA | Plenteum

@Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle Thanks for doing the interview. I wanted to talk today about ForkMaps, and what forking means to the community, and why it’s worth tracking.

Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle

The forkmaps.com story goes something like this… A couple of months ago, RockSteady said he wished someone would make an updated version of the fork timeline on the CryptoNote Wikipedia page. Turtley McTurtleton looked around a bit, didn’t find anything that was being maintained, and had only one response… “Hold my beer.” “I’m on it.”
The timing was just right. I was evaluating frontend JS frameworks for an upcoming work project, and rather than writing some contrived “hello world” sample, I used forkmaps as an opportunity to test a handful of frameworks in a real-life scenario.

RockSteady (TRTL)

That’s really cool. While making forkmaps is there anything that surprised you about all these forks?

Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle

I found the general friendliness by the CryptoNote community a little surprising. I’ve ventured into many discord servers either looking for project details, or advising someone to restore license headers, and I almost always receive a warm greeting.

RockSteady (TRTL)

Tell us a bit about the tech behind the project and how it all works. I noticed the front end got noticeably faster to load recently. Can you talk about that a bit for some of our nerdier readers?

Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle

I used Vue.js for the frontend. I wrote it using Vue first, then rewrote it using React, and then messed around with a handful of other frameworks/libraries. I’ve used AngularJS and React quite a bit in the past, and to me, Vue is the perfect marriage of the two.

The site has very few dependencies. I used three Vue packages (base, vue-router, vuex), axios for HTTP requests, and echarts. I didn’t use a CSS framework, so design took me forever, but taught me a lot.

To tackle performance, I cleaned up a lot of my JS, replacing a lot of nested functions with array reducers. I added a few CSS transitions to smooth out navigation, added loading indicators (which you should almost never see), and threw in some other UX tricks. Other than the fork map page, my improvements were mostly about perceived performance. You can make something that’s actually very fast, feel slow through clunky UX, and that’s what I’d done with my first attempt.

On the map page, I switched from vis.js to echarts, which is much more UX-friendly.

That was a lot, and I promise I’m almost done.

On the data side, all of the CryptoNote coins live in a separate git repo, as individual coin files to make them easy to manage. Whenever there’s an update, I run a gulp task to combine them into a single json file, which forkmaps.com pulls directly from GitHub. This way, it’s trivial to add additional coin families in the future.

RockSteady (TRTL)

That’s really cool, what do you plan to add to it next and what kind of helpers are you currently looking for?

Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle

Next I’m working on a timeline representation similar to the example you initially showed me. Someone’s working on the 200k TRTL bounty for adding start/end dates to all of the coins as we speak. After that, I want to do max supply, emission curves, primary emission length, and possibly current supply. That one’s been requested a lot, and I think it’ll make an interesting chart. Most coins seem to have a primary emission measured in decades, while Nerva is only three years. I’m always happy to send TRTLs to anyone who contributes data or ideas.

That’s great that you’re including the community in this project, and even chipping in bounties for people who are helping out. With so much exposure to all of these different forks, surely you’ve come by some really interesting ones. If you don’t mind, let’s run through a few of the more memorable ones to you: Which fork has the best logo in your opinion — What is the most interesting fork — Which forks do you mine — What’s the worst fork name you’ve encountered — If you made a fantasy fork tomorrow, what would it be called and what would it do?

Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle

I like logos that don’t look like a coin. Some of my favorites are Boolberry, Alloy, Athena, Lethean, Nerva, TurtleCoin, and Karai (not on my site yet, but the logo is solid). Right now, I think the most interesting fork is Nerva. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when the supply is exhausted in like 2.5 years, and CPU-only mining is the kitten. I only mine Nerva and TurtleCoin. I rent some of my miners on miningrigrentals, and I used that income to buy more TRTL. Worst fork name? How about all of those dumbass XMR forks that happened when Monero switched their PoW algorithm? Actually, Sadomi might be the worst. I really don’t think they thought that one through.
A fantasy coin for me would be a TRTL fork so I’d always have a reliable codebase and community, and I’d implement a prime sieve PoW component similar to riecoin. I’d call it Turtimus Prime.

RockSteady (TRTL)

Haha that sounds fun. Whats up with Prime Sieve? tell me about that

Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle

So basically, you have an algorithm for finding prime numbers, or prime number patterns. Many projects have chosen to do something “useful” as PoW, at the expense of cryptographic security. But why not both? Add a secondary PoW step that’s relatively easy to perform, does something interesting, and throws another wrench at potential ASICs.

RockSteady (TRTL)

That’s cool, I think we’ve about got it all covered, is there anything you want to add?

Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle

I’m glad you asked!
Years and years ago, before cryptocurrency was a thing, I had a closet full of crunchers (mining rigs nowadays) working hard on distributed computing projects like folding@home (Team 32!) and BOINC/SETI. Back then, there was no financial incentive to spend lots of money on hardware and electricity, but we did it anyway. Some did it for a cause, some for leaderboard points, but I think most did it for the knowledge and the community.
I treat crypto projects the same way. At this point in my life, my time is far more valuable than any amount of hardware or hashrate, and there’s a big reason I spend so much of that time with my fellow turtles. And TurtleCoin is the only project I’ve found that really embodies that sense of teamwork and community that the distributed computing scene seems to have lost to crypto over the years.
So to all my turtle-fam, keep up the good work, and stay turtley!

RockSteady (TRTL)

Jerme, I’m glad you did this interview, and I’m happy you’re a part of this community! Thanks for everything you do with ForkMaps and otherwise, and I look forward to what you come up with next!
