We shifted significant amount of the work, required for transaction verification, from POS Proxy to POS itself. POS Proxy doesn’t know a recipient wallet address anymore. We also introduced an end-to-end encryption of the payment data. Thanks to @jagerman42 and others for contributing their critique and ideas!

    X-CASH DISCORD AMA #2

    First of all, we would like to thank everyone for taking the time to submit questions. The second round has brought loads of interesting questions and points we are glad to be clarifying. Can you introduce the re-brand reasons? The rebranding is the logical conclusion of these lasts months reflexions about the products we wanted to have in the X-CASH galaxy. The initial line of products do not drastically change but thanks to the rebranding they can now be easily identified and understood, more particularly for new joiners. Will the ticker “XCA” be changed? No, the ticker will remain the same. It was initially set as “XCA” but since the exchange listing, we chose to change it to “XCASH” to make it easier to read. What are the major hurdles and obstacles the team feel they need to overcome in order for success? The list of obstacles could be endless so we chose to stick to the three major ones. The biggest obstacle is definitely the technical part, as switching a Monero-like coin to a proof-of-stake consensus is far from being easy. Further down the road, the implementation of sidechains will also be very challenging. For many reasons, we always felt that such a project had to be disruptive from a technical perspective to be successful. Our stance on this has not changed and we think we will be able to deliver these items along the year. The second most important obstacle is the community growth. Any project in the cryptocurrency/blockchain space cannot succeed without a significant community of investors/users/developers. Our stance on this has not derived from the beginning, deliver first and then handle marketing. As we start delivering the technical upgrades in early 2019, we will also accelerate our communication and community growth. Finally, it is important to recall the strong correlation of our business to the cryptocurrency markets. This last component is why we have decided through the rebranding to put more stress on x-blockchain services. This offers a good hedge to our company as we will be generating profits next year, whatever the crypto market condition is. There will be 4 different coins or only xcash? There will only be one coin which is the current XCASH. The technical details of the coin remain unchanged and it will be used in all other services. How can we exchange xcash to BTC right now? You can buy xcash on 3 different exchanges: STEX Trade Satoshi Cryptopia However, only Cryptopia and Trade Satoshi have the BTC/XCASH pair. We recommend you check the price of the pair before deciding to buy using BTC. At the time of the article, buying XCASH with BTC is 3 to 4 times the price of buying XCASH with LTC. X-Cash (XCASH) price, charts, market cap, and other metrics | CoinMarketCap Note: since the initial writing of the article, Cryptopia has suffered significant funds loss due to a hack of their Ethereum wallet. It is currently unclear whether or not they will resume operations. How will the signature campaign/advertising XCA/XNETWORK look like? The signature campaign will start shortly and will advertise all 4 products with a strong emphasis on the Airdrop. How do I become part of the team/are you guys hiring? We are in the process of hiring people in Paris. The job offers will shortly be published on our website and some other crypto-related news pages. In short, if you have a passion for crypto with deep coding, marketing and or finance skills, please contact us. However, we are still looking for ambassadors. We have had great applications that are still being processed but are always glad to get more. If you are interested, please send an application to jobs@x-cash.org with information about yourself and your experience in crypto. Did you find Private Investors for the 5 Billion XCASH (5%)? Did you start the sales? There are several investors who are in line to buy from the 5bn coin reserve dedicated to it. We will open the sale in the next weeks with plans to slowly release this reserve throughout the first half of 2019. There will be an online tracker to watch the funds status. Are you planning to offer Nano Ledger support? If yes, when? If no, how to achieve total security for one owns X-cash savings? We have just started to look at Ledger implementation. This will require some development and we plan to add it in the year. This is not the top priority for the moment. In any way, the most secure way of securing your funds remain using a cold wallet. Any future partner plans? We are not ready to announce any partnership for the moment but there are some ongoing discussions. Where do you see XCASH in 3–5 years? Several paths are possible but the one we are targetting is the same since the beginning. Wide adoption from both retail consumers and corporates, more particularly in finance, with the highest level of regulatory compliance. XCASH will be the core utility token of the network and be used to create sidechains while allowing onchain and offchain payments. Among this bad market, what makes you sure that this x-cash project will survive since we already know that besides exchange, there are so many blockchain implementations for payment project out there, you have many competitors, but what makes you sure? There is no certainty is any business, more particularly startups, and even more particularly blockchain projects. Our strategy to “survive” is to generate the first profits to show the viability of the project. To generate these profits, we will need to generate sales and find the potential use case and clients for our products. The growing community we are building will help a lot in gaining the initial traction but as the business will become more and more competitive the key to success is comparative advantages. We have already described in the Whitepaper how we plan on becoming a true competitive payment solution and the x-bank will go in the same direction. On the blockchain services part, we have a similar stance where we strongly believe our solution will be cheaper and easier than the competitors’. As many projects are closing down due to funding issues, does x-cash team have enough funding or financial support for the project to continue or finish all the project commitments? From the beginning, we have prepared for the worst by building a cost-efficient structure. We now see this as another advantage as many projects have to close or lay off staff due to the inability to pay salaries. This is more an opportunity for us to grow as we will start generating revenues in 2019, while using our crypto and equity market cap to secure additional funding. To conclude, according to our current funding structure we should be able to support the project throughout the year of 2019 without significant funding issue. Will there be a fork? The next planned fork will occur for the switch of x-cash to PoW to PoS in Q1 2019. What do you plan to do to ensure high liquidity for future project plans? If you are referring to market liquidity, we have several plans, most of them being described in the Whitepaper. The primary one will be to add x-cash to additional exchanges and increasing numbers of trading pairs. One of the other solutions we are seriously investigating is the release of derivatives instruments but this is further down the road as we will need to already have well-established markets. Have you thought about creating a physical card you can use for payment? Yes, this is considered but there are already many actors in this market so we will have to carry an extensive review of what is doable. What we will need to particularly clear out is whether or not we are able to provide a solution with lower costs while keeping the efficiency high. What will the xbank do? The bank will first be an online x-cash storage facility where we will later allow the storage and exchange of other assets. x-bank will be tightly linked to x-payment with the goal to facilitate payments between users and developers through APIs implementation. When the xbank will be launched, will there be an option included that involves fiat currency? We are reviewing the possibility to later add FIAT currency (EUR) to the x-bank but this is more complicated as it involves a license from the regulator. Can you please elaborate on the implementation details of xbank? How will you ensure safety/reliability while also not becoming fully centralized and suffering from issues that have plagued Ripple? While we cannot fully disclose the full security features we are implementing, we can mention that we will be using a combination of hot and cold storage to guarantee most of the funds are out of reach. In addition, we have implemented a multi-signature wallet mechanism that increases the number of validators in order to perform wallet operations. x-bank will be added on top of the x-cash network meaning that all wallet operations will always be done on the x-cash network itself which is already significantly decentralized. Will issuing gateways be used outside of the xcash ledger? If your question is whether or not additional cryptocurrencies will be added in x-payment the answer is yes. Will sidechains be involved in the xbank? Likely no. What are the changes to the airdrop? / How the new project additions will impact airdrop and what about KYC? In principle, the airdrop will remain the same: a 20-month airdrop program where the remaining of the monthly airdrop/bounty pool of XCASH is distributed fairly between all registered users. Now, the airdrop will be distributed through the x-bank users. Users will have to create an account on the x-bank, and validate their account using a phone number (SMS based verification). This is the only level of verification that we will operate to validate an account to receive the airdrop. Users will have then the option to register for the airdrop when the registration is opened. The process will be relatively the same as before, except it will not go through the x-cash.org website but the x-bank. With POS coming in, will there be any change to the total supply of the coin? No, the technical characteristics of the coin remain the same. With the upcoming MN, what if a user does not have enough XCA to setup his/her own masternode? Unless major changes in the architecture, the minimum stake to participate in the dPoS consensus will be 1M XCASH. Amounts below will not be able to participate. I am sure there will be shared MN’s, but how to prevent the MN owner ‘runs away’ with the coins in the shared MN? In a regular proof-of-stake scheme, there is no finite way to prevent this as the stake has to be centralized in a single wallet, meaning that this is mostly trust based. x-cash proof-of-stake will be slightly different as the “stakers” will always be in control of their stakes. We will provide shortly a detailed article on this. If I have 100M XCA and want to setup my own MN, what is the procedure? / Will I need to setup my own server and do all the work myself? Or the team will take care of everything and I will just lend my tokens? Setting up a masternode/delegate will involve some technical work for which we will provide a detailed tutorial. Also, we will carry an extensive alpha tests period on test net where everyone will be able to accommodate (and discover potential issues) about the new mechanism. Another thing is, what is the minimum duration of a MN? For how long will my tokens will be locked up? There will be no time lock for the collateral of the Masternodes/delegates. Your stake behind the voting mechanism always remains available. To be able to run a masternode, will the quantity remains the same or will be reduced a little bit into 1M? The minimum amount to participate is set at 1M XCASH. This might evolve, particularly based on the price of XCASH itself. Having enough collateral is it possible for a single holder to setup multiple masternodes on the same PC? Although it is theoretically possible to run multiple delegates on the same instance due to low computing power usage, it would require some significant additional work which we have not planned to do for the time being. When will PoS will be available? We are planning on switching to PoS in Q1 2019. 100M stake and limited to 500 as of the last update, is it still the same? What are the reward fees and such? We are going to reduce the initial number of masternodes to ease and accelerate the consensus process. The reward mechanism will remain the same as initially stated which corresponds to the mining reward structure. Will staking be through the wallet on Windows or will it be through Linux where best option is VPS? For stability reasons, we will recommend to use a Linux based operating system to run a masternode but the binaries will be compilable on all OS. Can you confirm there will be a way to participate to a MN even with less than the 100M? Yes, as stated above minimum stake will be in the 1M XCASH range. What role will masternodes play, if any, in the operation of X-Bank? Masternodes will play a significant role with regards to consensus mechanism on the blockchain. There is no particular link to the x-bank beside the fact that it might operate one of them. Why do you help to create ERC20 tokens? Our blockchain service offer will progressively scale up to other blockchains including ethereum. The primary reason is that there are several answers for several needs. While x-cash sidechains will be very interesting to answer customized needs, we feel there is still a strong demand for more standardized products like ERC20 tokens. Will X-Cash be needed for creating ERC20 tokens? If X-Cash is not needed for creating ERC20 tokens please explain why? The x-blockchain services will be the first implementation of x-payment merchants solution and as a result, x-cash, as well as fiat and other cryptocurrencies, will be used to buy the services. Don’t you think you should focus on the X-Cash blockchain and should not provide help creating competitive ERC20 tokens? ERC20 tokens are very standardized and do not compete with x-cash sidechain tokens. We see this more as a way to extend our offer than creating competition between products. How Will X-Cash run its own mainnet in the future? x-cash mainnet structure will not drastically change in the future. There will be a change in the consensus algorithm to dPoS and later on sidechains will be added. How will the sidechain work for xcash and ERC20 tokens? ERC20 token will always remain on the ethereum blockchains. Sidechains will have many use cases including the creation of token. Will xcash run their blockchain on ETHEREUM? NEO? EOS ? or will it create its own mainnet? X-cash will continue to run on its own mainnet, just as it is now.

    Upcoming Wallet Redesign

    There are lots of cool features we’re planning for GRAFT and GRAFT wallet in particular. These changes will be rolled out over time as the supporting functionality develops inside the GRAFT network and around it, but we wanted to give you a sneak preview of things to come. Improved and Ehnanced Payment Workflow Those QR codes that you’re scanning off POS actually carry product information inside of them that the wallet can display to the user and store for future recall and analysis. Rich Transaction Logging All transactions will be logged – both the sale (RTA) and transfer transactions. What’s more, the sale transactions will store the metadata about the transaction for further analysis. Improved Login Usability We hear you – the login needs to be fast and easy, passwords are evil. Better Wallet Management Being able to manage multiple wallets without having to reset the wallet every time. P2P Transfers connected to Address Book Ability to launch and manage SuperNodes and Exchange Brokers right from the App We want to make launching and managing the nodes and brokers super-easy and accessible to everyone. Integration with CryptoFind so you can find those locations that accept digital currencies Integration with ColdPay Wallet / Payment card Oh, and last but by far not the least, multisignature support in the underlying blockchain and its innovative use with the wallet means that the phone app can still be light without sacrificing security. As usual, we welcome constructive comments from the community around wallet design and other topics! The post Upcoming Wallet Redesign appeared first on Graft Blockchain. View Original Post

    Full Client VPN Creation Underway

    Greetings, Lethean community! The new year is well underway, and off to a great start for the team! This update covers some rapid progress we’ve made in both development and marketing respects, as well as summarizes some articles that we have released over the past few days. Dev Corner The Browser VPN is nearing completion! Currently, we are doing extended testing and fixing bugs that have been discovered with the Browser VPN. Once all these bugs are fixed, the Browser VPN will be complete, and we’ll be able to begin working on the full VPN client in full force! We hope this news is as exciting for you as it is for us. In conjunction with the Browser VPN’s upcoming finalization, we are also working on creating a Docker image to assist with new exit node creation. This image will make it much easier to set up and maintain a node, thus increasing the available selection of nodes that users will be able to choose from when using our products. Internal testing has also begun on the full VPN client. These initial tests are to ensure that once the client is added to the wallet, there are no connectivity issues. Our development team worked very hard over the holidays to get to this point, and we are very proud of them and their continued work. The fact that we have reached this point of testing so early is a testament to their ability, and we are glad to be where we are now. We will keep everyone updated with further details as they become available. As an addendum, we would like to remind our community that we are an open source project; as such, if you are a developer, we welcome your assistance and/or feedback. If any developers wish to assist us with our efforts, they are free to do so at any time through our Github page, social pages, or by emailing us at contact@intensecoin.com.

    X-CASH iOS Wallet Development Update

    Dear X-CASH Community, Today, we would like to give you more insights into the development of the mobile wallet, specifically the iOS wallet (Apple devices). This article is designed to give you a deeper look into the general user experience of the mobile wallet. Creating a new wallet You can create a brand new wallet in the X-CASH wallet app. You can personalize the wallet icon to differentiate your wallets, name them and secure them with a password. Importing an existing wallet If you already have an X-CASH wallet, you can easily import it into the app using your mnemonic seed. Please note that all encryption and security-related features are handled on the client side. The application does not send Mnemonic seeds and private keys to any server. Account summary and transaction details As you can do already with the GUI and Web Wallet, you will be able to check your account summary, incoming and outgoing transactions of your wallet on the main page. Settings and wallet details, generate QR Code You can check your wallet public and private keys, and mnemonic seed in the wallet details tab. In the settings tab, you will be able to change the parameters of your wallet app such as security (password, add a timeout and change the app server). You can also generate a QR code of your wallet to give to others to receive transactions. Create new contact You can add new contacts to your app by providing the wallet address or a QR code of your recipient’s wallet. Send transactions Finally, you can send transactions, either by entering the XCASH address of your recipient, by choosing a contact in your contacts book or by scanning the QR code of your recipient’s wallet. As you can see, the wallet development is quite advanced, and we are planning on releasing it to everyone soon. We still have improvements to bring on the send x-cash function and on the transaction information display, but you will be able to experience it hands-on in a short time. Do you have suggestions or questions? Please don’t hesitate to comment on this article with your remarks. X-CASH iOS Wallet Development Update was originally published in X-CASH on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. View the full article

    FunkyPenguin’s Turtle Pool Secrets

    A lot of you out there have questions about how pools work and what goes into running a successful one. Today we’re checking out an interview with FunkyPenguin who runs probably one of the coolest setups I’ve seen so far with all of the pools I’ve seen. Maybe I’m just a nerd, but I have a big appreciation for the way he’s doing things. You’re gonna love this one! art by TeacupRockSteady Thanks again for agreeing to the interview. The purpose of this interview is for us to highlight smaller pools that have unique things about them. Giving exposure to smaller pools is important in diversifying the hashrate. I hope today to hear about you, your pool, your history in mining and what a user might find unique about your pool. funkypenguin Cool RockSteady Your pool is a cool one, and I think the miners as well as developers will appreciate the unique qualities to it. You first came on my radar with some of the interesting infrastructure work you were doing behind the scenes. I’d like to get in to that soon, but first, tell us how you got involved in TurtleCoin, and what led to you running a pool. funkypenguin (I’ve documented this here: https://www.funkypenguin.co.nz/opinion/what-is-turtlecoin-and-why-do-i-care/), but here’s the off-the-cuff version I was opportunistically looking for coins to mine after the Monero Cryptonight v7 fork, so I spent some time on cryptunit.com. Every so often, I’d see “TurtleCoin”, and laugh at what a silly name it was, and how ridiculous the crypto space had become. Somewhere (maybe Reddit) I saw the headline for the BlockZero (Kevin Rose) podcast featuring TurtleCoin, and the name triggered some brand recognition. The level of respect that Kevin had for the project, and the way “community” was highlighted, changed my initial skeptical opinion, and I jumped into the Discord I felt that I wanted to be more than another opportunistic miner, and that a “baby” cryptocurrency was a good place to start learning. (There was no NZ mining pool) I’d already spent 6–8 months building my Geek’s Cookbook (a collection of self-hosted apps running within Docker Swarm), and wondered whether I could build a TurtleCoin mining pool. I figured I should start with a testnet, so I started asking some questions in #dev_general, and @SoreGums pointed me in the right direction. I ended up submitting a PR for a testnet Docker instance of the TurtleCoin daemon which could be used to create a testnet in total isolation from mainnet (https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin/blob/development/Dockerfile.test Having built a testnet, I started working on the mining pool, learning about wallet/daemon/redis/pool, and how they interrelate. I wrote up the Docker Swarm design (a bit outdated now) at https://geek-cookbook.funkypenguin.co.nz/recipies/turtle-pool/ Turtle Pool — Funky Penguin’s Geek Cookbook There were some interesting challenges re how the pool components talked to each other, some of which lined up very well with the “one-process-per-container” model of Docker I sort of fell into it from there, started mining in my pool, discovered that I could advertise in #mining , posted my pool to r/TRTL a few times, and enjoyed the process of mining “together” with other geeky crypto enthusiasts RockSteady It’s great that you’ve documented your journey the whole way, and as a microservice nerd in my own life, I feel a personal respect for what you’ve done. funkypenguin (To be honest, I also want to profit from crypto, and I figured I’d leverage my systems experience to build pools to amass some coins, rather than strictly mining-and-selling-and-hodling) RockSteady You’ve got a cool frontend on your pool, and as I remember, you were one of the first to have the new-style interface. What are some of the unique qualities of your pool that would be interesting to a miner looking to diversify their hashrate some? funkypenguin I polled my miners on this question, asking “what features does a miner really care about?”. The best response was from @slashatello, who said “miners care about.. BLOCKS”. I was interested in the telegram/email notifications from https://github.com/dvandal/cryptonote-nodejs-pool, which remain my favourite feature. Here’s an example: RockSteady That looks cool, break it down for me- what’s going on in that pic? funkypenguin 11:57 : The pool restarted (I’m running turtlecoind-ha, that’s another story), my rig connected 12:04 : The same again (this happens when the daemon gets stuck, it sometimes takes a few goes to restore stability) 12:07 : One of the miners finds a block. Yay! Now we wait 20 min to confirm it’s not an orphan 12:11 : Yes, daemon restarts again 12:29 : Block is not orphaned, now is the first time (based on these notifications) we see what our effort was (43%). Unlike the original turtle-pool software, lower % is better, so we “found” this block in 43% of the time we’d statistically expect to (we were lucky) <by this time, the wallet has received the block reward. Redis calculates how much each miner is due, and payments are prepared> 12:31 : The pool sends the miners their portions of the block reward (minus my 0.0987654321% fee), everyone is happy (the fee is a funny story actually — when I first setup the pool, I looked at the list of pools and saw someone else’s pool listed as 0.0987..%. I thought it was a clever attention-grabbing move, so I adopted it for myself. I think I read later that it was just a math bug!) RockSteady That’s pretty funny, actually! Thanks for giving us the play by play. That’s a pretty intricate setup. So you’ve made a pool, and you’ve written guides and Dockerfiles for us, what don’t you do?! You’re awesome! What do you have planned for the future, and what are you interested in learning right now? funkypenguin Thank you Well, this daemon restarting thing is a bit of a PITA, and the original platform I ran my swarm on was heavily contended at times, so I’ve just finished migrating the pool to a Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) cluster. I still have the occasional daemon issue (as evidenced above), but we seem to recover from a stalled daemon with a few quick restarts. I overspecced the GKE cluster when I built it (I’m only using 22% of my resources for Turtle/Moneytips pools), so I’m currently playing with autoscaling the cluster, as well as using a “tainted” nodepool running (cheap) pre-emptive node instances for doing CPU-heaving stuff like syncing new coins blockchains. The fact that they’re pre-emptive means that Google could turn them off at any time, but the GKE engine would just spin me up a new one in a few min, and for the purposes of an initial blockchain sync, I don’t need to maintain any sort of availability So I’m enjoying learning more about the world of Kubernetes / Terraform. I’m also continuing to build the Geek’s Cookbook community (http://chat.funkypenguin.co.nz/), the discord gets quite busy at times, and there’s now enough geeks on board that I don’t end up answer every question myself, which is great to see. I’ve dabbled with “livestreaming”/”livecoding” — last night I had an audience of 4 geeks watching me configure Lidarr with NZBHydra — thrilling stuff! Oh, and my new darling, Prometheus/Grafana — I’ve been building on the “swarmprom” stack (https://geek-cookbook.funkypenguin.co.nz/recipies/swarmprom/), adding prometheus exporters for nvidia GPU stats, Emby, Nginx, etc funkypenguin I’m planning on doing Geek’s Cookbook Vol II — The Kubernetes Edition, although how I combine this all into the same content structure is YTBD one of the challenges with either Swarm or Kubernetes is that it’s very hard to have the original source IP of the miner visible to your pool, because of all the layers of load balancing and NAT that applied. This means that you can no longer ban bad/misconfigured miners by IP address (because you don’t have their IP address). I haven’t found a failsafe solution for this yet, but I have an open bounty for providing a way to ban miners based on TRTL address, rather than IP address. I also had to add a workaround to the pool software to bypass the IP-address-check which you’d normally have to pass, in order to enable/disable email notifications (https://github.com/funkypenguin/cryptonote-nodejs-pool/commit/ce7d0216d1dfb97306fd361308ce5d1dde56520b) RockSteady If you had to make an appeal to miners out there wanting to spread out the hashrate some, what would be an advantage of choosing your pool? funkypenguin While I originally tried to “corner the market” on an NZ / AU pool, truth is that the latency to NZ has no impact on blocks found, in real world observation. 90% of our pool hash (@Slash-atello) is from the US. So I’d appeal to TRTL miners (worldwide) who are also into microservices / homelab / self-hosting (and LEGO, high-fiving @bruceleon) to not just mine with us but come and “geek out” with us in Discord at http://chat.funkypenguin.co.nz/ RockSteady I think I’ve got everything we need, is there anything you wanted to add that I may have missed? funkypenguin Probably yet (yet another) acknowledgement that the “secret sauce” in TRTL, which stands out from other coins, is the focus on community and fun. Thanks for welcoming me RockSteady Thanks for being a part of this experience! Originally published at TurtleCoin. View the full article

  25. Hi everyone, this is our first update on GRAFT development activities in 2019! With the New Year off to a great start, we are closing in on several important milestones and deliverables in Q1 of 2019. For the past 3 weeks we have been hard at work on: 1. Preparing to the publish payment gateway, exchange broker, and BigCommerce plugin on RTA alphanet 2. Making solid progress with the Monero 13 merge 3. Working on the new proposed RTA flow based on community feedback 4. Solidifying the development tasks for the Beta launch now that all the uncertainties are removed In the next three months we’re looking at a very busy and aggressive delivery schedule: Payment Gateway, Exchange Broker (RTA testnet) ww 3 Selective Monero 13 Merge ww 4 BigCommerce plugin ww 5 Payout broker (RTA testnet) ww 7 RTA Beta Testing ww 8 RTA Beta Release ww 11 We’re doing our best to adhere to the timelines, but as usual with complex software development, please allow room for potential delays. The payment gateway, exchange broker and BigCommerce plugin are critical elements to adoption as they represent the user side of the network. As such we’ll be looking for volunteers to help test these. If you’re interested and equipped to test and provide feedback, please join the TG group https://t.me/joinchat/EneBww74YVjVuyfwCCsidA The new RTA flow is published here https://github.com/graft-project/graft-ng/wiki/%5BRFC-003-RTVF%5D-RTA-Transaction-Validation-Flow. (Special thanks to Jason, @jagerman42 for contributing and consolidating a lot of the feedback) We look forward to the next month with lots of hard work, but also lots of tangible results coming down the pike!

    Interview w/ Soregums from TRTL Core Team

    Interview w/ SoreGums from TRTL Core Team A while back we used to do an interview series called Under The Shell. This was a series of interviews done by an actual journalist, Gigantomachia, who would pull aside members of the community for an article, and when it was over the person being interviewed would pick another member to be next. The series was great, but sometimes life gets in the way, and this interview with SoreGums sat on the shelf for a few months. I never want good content to go to waste, and I’m sure you guys would love to read it, so here’s the interview with a member of our core team, SoreGums. This will be the last “Under the Shell”, but it is far from the last interview, enjoy! How’d you first learn about TurtleCoin? I first learned about it via the Kevin Rose podcast BlockZero: #003 — TurtleCoin — The next Dogecoin?. What was it about the coin that drew you in. Why are you involved in TurtleCoin as opposed to the other coins out there? I listened to that episode during the 1st week of Feb 2018, then joined Discord. For the first 48hrs checked out everything and sat in #help and assisted others finding their way. Poked around the dev channels and ended up with contributor access to the Meta repo to help with issues there and got a dev-role tag as well. This level/kind of openness in projects is uncommon. I was also involved in discussions and liked the atmosphere and am now here for good. Other projects in this field pretty much have an agenda, and the dev teams don’t encourage outside involvement. I don’t like writing code; I can, I’m not great at it (as measured by speed and regurgitating things from memory — like on a whiteboard). My skill set is figuring things out (know how to find what is needed, be it tools, utilities, platforms, etc. and then put them together) and providing a way forward. I also like writing documentation. I very much enjoy supporting teams rather than being the star or leader. Also, TurtleCoin is very much a currency application which runs on the TRTL Network. This distinction is relatively new (June 2018), however, has been in the roadmap from the start, see the Karai milestone. The appeal here then for me is getting in amongst it at a level that requires a fundamental understanding of how this all works. Primarily a learning opportunity, I am a believer in continued learning/development is essential for avoiding depression and being “happy” (to put it in simple terms). How long have you been interested in crypto? First got into it April 2011, bought 3x AMD GPUs to start mining Bitcoin. It seemed like it would be a thing. Would have been great if I believed that with conviction, haha. So you gave up early? About HODL. Always been following. Been moving around a lot, electricity vs reward at the time etc. I’m a member of the “if only” club of 2017 (BTC price surge etc.). I traded in 40BTC for an Amazon gift card to buy eBooks etc. Still worth it, however, in hindsight, 40*20k is a large number, that would have been nice. Now, 7yrs later it’s visible traditional central banking will be impacted. Blockchain genie is free, an energy-efficient application of it will need to be figured out long-term though. Have you been involved in any other crypto project before TurtleCoin? Not like with TurtleCoin. On BitcoinTalk, I was pretty vocal in the Coino Coin project, which died due to the core dev team being two people and real life got in the way. It was also a fast block project, ran into problems with that and the size of the blockchain database. It is funny, Dash, Digibyte, Coino all started around the same time. The core idea of fast blocks and what that enables is why I am so interested in TurtleCoin. I’m as involved in TurtleCoin as I am because of how the project works and the people attracted to this way of working. I’ve been able to engage in discussions and contribute some value, that is accepted. Then the reason this is a thing is that the project has a focus on the platform as a tool, rather than a way to get rich quick (funny how incentives dictate actions/behaviour). Which leads to the people, we seem to be evenly distributed across the globe teaming up as it were on common end-goal objectives. Everyone I’m actively involved with comes at the work via the collaborative, open, straightforward, humble, mindset. You’ve mentioned being interested in fast block times a few times. What about fast block times interests you and what do they enable? Everyday transactions, the only way any cryptocurrency is going to become “the way everyday transactions are conducted” is if they are instant or close enough. In Australia/New Zealand they have self-service checkouts at the supermarket, NZ has self-service petrol pumps, a financial transaction needs occur to complete the sale as it were. So fast block times matter, no one is going to adopt a new way that requires them to stand around for more than 5secs before they can go. Thus immediate responses from the network are essential (fundamentally there doesn’t need to be fast block times, however as a building block it is a logical place to work from/at). Bitcoin is getting instant transactions via technology like lighting network, which briefly means people between the purchaser and seller guarantee amounts are moving from purchaser to seller instead of the network directly (over-simplified, general idea). So practically how all this works is like this. A transaction broadcast to the network is the equivalent of authorisation in the current visa/card networks. This authorisation is saying “these funds have been allocated FROM this account TO this other account”, allocated means on the way to the destination, (privacy coins, of which TurtleCoin is one, only the sender and receiver know the FROM and TO parties) and is instant. In the visa/card networks at this point the sale is, and everyone moves on, the purchaser has their items, and the seller is confident they’ll receive the funds/the transaction will settle (funds show up in the clear in their account, arrived at destination), eventually as guaranteed by legal contracts etc. In the blockchain world, this is a little bit tricky as there is no guarantee by anyone that these broadcasted transactions will ever be settled/confirmed. Settlement in blockchain tech comes in the form of included transactions in blocks, fast block times mean these blocks, and thus transactions being confirmed happens fast. Each time a block is produced from when the transaction was first included in the blockchain is an additional confirmation that the funds moved from one account to another. For TurtleCoin the target time for block production is 30 seconds. This means within 20 minutes a seller can be confident they will have the funds (technically they have the funds within 30 seconds). Contrast this to the Visa/card networks the seller needs to be cautious because the funds could be taken back up 90 days or even more depending on the card network and agreements etc., for various reasons. It is challenging in the blockchain world for a purchaser to take back the amounts they have sent as the confirmations continue to accumulate, there is no authority to turn to mediate on their behalf. That is a super long answer however it is not often explained in detail for everyday people to make the connection between block times and how Visa/card networks operate. TRTL Network has attracted a lot of regular people due to how the community and project members interact with each other, so perhaps someone will find the above details useful. Having code that enables fast block times isn’t the only factor that would lead to actual real-world adoption of TurtleCoin. What do you think needs to happen beyond the code for this to take off? Utility. It is the answer to all blockchain adoption. TurtleCoin has it as a premise, however, in practice, it is still in the infancy stages. Once the TRTL Network Spec is defined, it’ll allow anyone to write any code that speaks to all nodes in the network. Said another way, the current TurtleCoind daemon can be replaced by some system that works perfectly for the people writing the code, and they will be able to interact with the TRTL Network just fine. As for specific things that could promote real-world adoption, supplement all transactions that happen via cash with TurtleCoin transactions. It is going to take business relationships of the community to make that happen. One thing that will help any of those conversations is the access to reliable APIs, so the barrier to entry is as low as possible. I am talking about web wallets or platforms that act like web wallets. Just so happens that one such platform is under development by Fexra (GitHub/Discord). Fexra is building out a web wallet platform that enables merchants to integrate with the TRTL Network without having run, own and operate independent infrastructure and at least in the beginning, and this is needed. As the TRTL Network project progresses and standard tools are developed and released under the “Turtle Pay” heading, being able to find TurtleCoin and then be offering it the next day as a way to exchange value, this is what encourages adoption: ease of use; security; etc. What do you do IRL? Career? Student? I’ve been in IT since leaving high school in 2002. My predominant occupation is taking care of my son; he’s 1yr old. So am blazing my path doing different things here and there, IT related. What are you doing in Vietnam? I’m supporting a tourism company to attract foreigners, via native English website. They are a successful Vietnamese domestic tourism company. What’s your favorite pizza? Italian, from Italy; a bit of sauce, some fresh cheese, something green. Loved visiting there a few years ago, missed it immediately when we crossed the border to France. French delis are amazing, eating out of a deli all the time while possible, would not be ideal. Any particular projects or initiatives you’re working on right now where you’re seeking community input? I’m an analyst and details focused type of person that can also zoom out to verify the big picture as well. As such infrastructure and breaking down how things work has me focused on developing the project Krang. It is a Blockchain Automation Testing Suite, which means standing up infrastructure automatically and running tests on it, measuring results and creating reports. Said in plain language, turning on multiple computers, installing all the needed software for the blockchain network to function and checking how things run and writing about/reporting on it. Krang will work for TRTL Network first, then move onto other blockchain projects. There are a bunch of goals that get covered by the above being real. It means we can automatically test releases before pushing them out. We can check for regressions in performance or even benchmark to figure out where we could make performance improvements. It enables us to test the theoretical parts with ease. It allows us to test different network attack scenarios with ease and assist in developing mitigations. It is considered a massive project regarding what it enables. There will be a fair amount of code created to package all the standard tools and even more documentation written to allow others to use Krang or further extend it. The actual work to be done though is standard practice in organisations that prefer measured/ correct results, rather than guesses. So if the above appeals to you, ping me on Discord. One other fellow in Australia is also involved and enjoys working on the infrastructure puzzle. Now that TurtleCoin has been listed with CoinMarketCap what do you think that increased exposure might mean for TRTL. I think it mostly signals a validation of the work being done. The group of contributors to the project is expanding each week. For them to be seeing that the project is getting positive attention will help with the positive feedback loop. For the users of the network and future users, it is also a positive signal. There is a dark side to CoinMarketCap in that their timing on information updates has been shown to be self-serving and would encourage people to seek alternative data points instead of relying solely on CMC. One such site is CoinGecko.com, since TurtleCoin’s inception, the project has climbed up the developer ranking there and now (2018–09) TRTL is ranked 26. Slow and steady is the TurtleCoin motto, we’re here for the long term. The openness of TurtleCoin in terms of accepting contributions is great and wide, the project might be viewed at first glance as being a bit of a lark with its meme coin start, however, it is serious about the technology and the utility it is seeking to enable. One of the projects primary objectives is to educate anyone interested in blockchain technology, either as a user or as a developer. As such the more exposure we get the more people we’ll be able to impact and give people a real handle on what this technology is all about so they can feel empowered and be an active participant in this new world. Like how the internet has connected everybody on the planet, it was the realm of the nerds when it started, blockchain technology needs to have some of the nerd transformed and made accessible for everyone. Also…When you’re not working or hanging out in the TurtleCoin discord, what do you like to do for fun? Go to the movies, went to see Deadpool 2 the other week. The first one was best, the second was good fun and entertaining as well, it is based on a comic series though, and well, it’s a bit hard to “out original” the original. Travelling, reading, learning, visiting family, going out for the day, playing chess with my wife are some other things. Originally published at TurtleCoin. View the full article

    This Week in TurtleCoin (Jan 7, 2019)

    It’s been one of the biggest weeks yet and we can’t wait to share our updates with you! Every week that isn’t directly following a major drinking holiday we like to write an article like this to tell you about our progress over the past week to keep the community in-the-know about our projects. If you have project you’d like to tell us about, tell us about it and you will probably see your project featured in next week’s article! Now that we’ve got that explanation out of the way, here’s what we worked on this week! Art by WarlordN1K who runs the TurtleCoin Minecraft ServerDeveloper Community Who Sent 10 Turtle — Last week TurtlePay came out so I decided to try and learn how to accept TurtleCoin on a website with it!. After lots of learning and with the help from the Turtle community, the result can be seen in this little game I created: You send 10 TRTL to see who sent 10TRTL before you and what messages did they leave. I purposely made the app and design layout super simple (without even a DB) and open source, so people can contribute or hopefully fork it and open one page shops and apps accepting TRTL through right away. The code can be found here: https://github.com/mrrovot/one-page-turtlepay — mrrovot TurtlePay™ One Page Shop Oiboo’s Game Emporium — New Year New Look! I have been busy revamping Oiboo’s Game Emporium, some come and take a look… Over the Christmas break I have been inspired by TRTL EDU and created the “Learn” section. The first tutorial is an intro to “make games quick with open source code”. There are plans for more tutorials from other turtle creators in the community with more fun, exciting projects on the way. So come and play some games or learn how to make then yourself! As always, if you have a project you want featured or if you have any questions, contact me on “Info@games.turtacus.com” or message me direct on the Dev_Gaming Channel! — Oiboo Oiboo's Game Emporium | Welcome TurtlePay — I’ve received some good feedback from a few different developers that are working with the platform. As a result, I’ve made a few tweaks to the core code behind the service this week. 1) Faster delivery of callback messages by disallowing the queue to stack up 2) Data payloads between workers are now encrypted using AES encryption to prevent tampering. 3) The public API now provides a ‘publicKey’ parameter that is generated for each request. All callback messages are being signed with the related ‘privateKey’ to provide verification that callbacks came from TurtlePay. In addition, I’ve been working diligently on the documentation for the service. I hope to have that done in the next week. — IBurnMyCD TurtlePay™ Art by Teacup from the TRTL Network DiscordTRTL-Stak — TRTL-stak is back with vengeance!

    CN Turtle Will Steal Your Girl

    With all the commotion about the next fork upgrade, and the debut of our new hashing algo, CN Turtle, I wanted to make sure everyone has the run down about the fork upgrade before it arrives in a few weeks. Today, I got with IBurnMyCD who has been the lead on this algo and got a short interview about what is CN Turtle and what does it mean to me, both as a miner and a user. If you’re a miner, a user, or a fan of fine rewritable optical media, I think you’ll enjoy this article. It was a fun interview. If you have any questions, just click this link and join us in the chat, we’re all here waiting on you. We’re all gonna make itRockSteady @iburnmycd thanks for taking the time to do this interview. I wanted to get with you to discuss the upcoming fork upgrade in simple terms so our users know what’s in store for them. First, what is the deal with this fork upgrade and why are we doing this? iburnmycd Thanks for having me @RockSteady (TRTL). It’s always an honour to help let the community that isn’t in the Discord all the time to catch the latest and greatest news. A while back, the project made the commitment to the community that the project would do its best to remain mineable for as many users as possible. Part of holding to that commitment is investigating, testing, implementing, and upgrading the Proof of Work used by the project. We’ve done this with experimenting with CN Soft Shell that a few forks of TurtleCoin have implemented and again with CN Turtle that we’re forking to at block 1,200,000. This upgrade is designed to help keep the project mineable for everyone by reducing the resource requirements necessary to mine. As a result, everyone will see higher hash rates which also means that there is a higher chance of solving a block as each miner will be producing hashes noticeably faster. However, there will be more hashes required (on average) to find a block. Our hope is that in the larger scope of things, this works out to be a win for the the littlest miners. RockSteady You mentioned our miners will be mining faster, what does that translate to for someone who has 100H/s of CPU power or another person who has 100H/s of GPU power? iburnmycd Based on testing, we estimate that miners will see on average an increase of anywhere between 3.0x and 4.0x for CPUs and 2.0x to 3.0x on GPUs. Personally, on my hardware I’ve observed a 3.8x increase on my CPU (AMD 1950x) and 2.8x on my GPU (AMD Vega64). However, not every CPU and GPU performs the same so the increase may be more or less than what we’ve observed. Variations in drivers, the mining software used, etc may result in higher or lower increases; however, what we can all agree on is that miners will see an increase in hashrate, no matter how small, due to the lower resource requirement and iteration count. On average a miner who was seeing 100H/s on CPU may see approximately 350H/s and a miner seeing 100H/s on GPU may see approximately 250H/s after the upgrade takes effect. RockSteady That’s great news. Let’s say you’re a miner, what do you need to do to be ready? Are most major miners already ready to work? And what if you’re just a user, do you have to do anything? iburnmycd That depends on how you mine :) If you’re a solo miner and you use the miner binary distributed with the project, you’ll need only upgrade to v0.12.0 once it’s released. The miner software will automatically switch to the new PoW algorithm when it’s time. If you’re mining with a pool, you’ll need to contact the pool operator or check their website to verify that they have upgraded their pool software for the upgrade. If they haven’t, you might want to give them a gentle reminder that they need to do so. In addition, you’ll want to make sure that you have the latest release of your favorite mining software. For instance, we’ve released the necessary updates for xmr-stak via trtl-stak (https://github.com/turtlecoin/trtl-stak/releases/latest) that has the updated algorithm available as cryptonight_turtle. In the coming weeks, we'll submit a pull request to the main xmr-stak repo to support the change. We're still working the kinks out of the automatic algorithm switch in the package but in the event we don't work that in, a miner need only manually switch the algorithm, delete their CPU & GPU configs, and let the software do the rest. We're still working on adding support into XMRig and hope to have that completed before the network upgrade. We've also received information that SRBminer has also implemented the algorithm. Users of that mining software will need to switch the algorithm over when it's time. Everyone, miners or not, need to keep their eyes out for the v0.12.0 release of the project. Service Operators, home users, pool operators, and other services will need to upgrade to v0.12.0 well ahead of block 1,200,000 to be ready for the upgrade. For most users, this upgrade will be like any other upgrade that we've done where you drop the new version in and you're good to go. RockSteady Whats the best way to see how long we have before the upgrade takes effect? iburnmycd The quickest and fastest way is to head on over to the official block explorer at https://explorer.turtlecoin.lol/ In the Network Stats area, you’ll see an area that says Next Network Upgrade In (est.) with the approximate number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds until the next network upgrade. RockSteady Thanks for taking a second to tell us about the fork upgrade, is there anything else you wanted to add? iburnmycd If you’re reading this and you are not on Discord, you should be. We’d love to have you. It’s the only way to get a real feel for the project and meet all the different personalities. If you want to help out, there’s plenty of different areas to check out from development, education, marketing, international groups, and everything in between. Discord is the best place to meet other cryptocurrency developers who share a passion for the technology and their projects. Besides, where else can you learn about codename Chukwa?
