Gridcoin 18.104.22.168-Mandatory "Fern" Release
https://github.com/gridcoin-community/Gridcoin-Research/releases/tag/22.214.171.124 Finally! After over ten months of development and testing, "Fern" has arrived! This is a whopper. 240 pull requests merged. Essentially a complete rewrite that was started with the scraper (the "neural net" rewrite) in "Denise" has now been completed. Practically the ENTIRE Gridcoin specific codebase resting on top of the vanilla Bitcoin/Peercoin/Blackcoin vanilla PoS code has been rewritten. This removes the team requirement at last (see below), although there are many other important improvements besides that. Fern was a monumental undertaking. We had to encode all of the old rules active for the v10 block protocol in new code and ensure that the new code was 100% compatible. This had to be done in such a way as to clear out all of the old spaghetti and ring-fence it with tightly controlled class implementations. We then wrote an entirely new, simplified ruleset for research rewards and reengineered contracts (which includes beacon management, polls, and voting) using properly classed code. The fundamentals of Gridcoin with this release are now on a very sound and maintainable footing, and the developers believe the codebase as updated here will serve as the fundamental basis for Gridcoin's future roadmap. We have been testing this for MONTHS on testnet in various stages. The v10 (legacy) compatibility code has been running on testnet continuously as it was developed to ensure compatibility with existing nodes. During the last few months, we have done two private testnet forks and then the full public testnet testing for v11 code (the new protocol which is what Fern implements). The developers have also been running non-staking "sentinel" nodes on mainnet with this code to verify that the consensus rules are problem-free for the legacy compatibility code on the broader mainnet. We believe this amount of testing is going to result in a smooth rollout. Given the amount of changes in Fern, I am presenting TWO changelogs below. One is high level, which summarizes the most significant changes in the protocol. The second changelog is the detailed one in the usual format, and gives you an inkling of the size of this release.
Note that the protocol changes will not become active until we cross the hard-fork transition height to v11, which has been set at 2053000. Given current average block spacing, this should happen around October 4, about one month from now. Note that to get all of the beacons in the network on the new protocol, we are requiring ALL beacons to be validated. A two week (14 day) grace period is provided by the code, starting at the time of the transition height, for people currently holding a beacon to validate the beacon and prevent it from expiring. That means that EVERY CRUNCHER must advertise and validate their beacon AFTER the v11 transition (around Oct 4th) and BEFORE October 18th (or more precisely, 14 days from the actual date of the v11 transition). If you do not advertise and validate your beacon by this time, your beacon will expire and you will stop earning research rewards until you advertise and validate a new beacon. This process has been made much easier by a brand new beacon "wizard" that helps manage beacon advertisements and renewals. Once a beacon has been validated and is a v11 protocol beacon, the normal 180 day expiration rules apply. Note, however, that the 180 day expiration on research rewards has been removed with the Fern update. This means that while your beacon might expire after 180 days, your earned research rewards will be retained and can be claimed by advertising a beacon with the same CPID and going through the validation process again. In other words, you do not lose any earned research rewards if you do not stake a block within 180 days and keep your beacon up-to-date. The transition height is also when the team requirement will be relaxed for the network.
Besides the beacon wizard, there are a number of improvements to the GUI, including new UI transaction types (and icons) for staking the superblock, sidestake sends, beacon advertisement, voting, poll creation, and transactions with a message. The main screen has been revamped with a better summary section, and better status icons. Several changes under the hood have improved GUI performance. And finally, the diagnostics have been revamped.
The wallet sync speed has been DRASTICALLY improved. A decent machine with a good network connection should be able to sync the entire mainnet blockchain in less than 4 hours. A fast machine with a really fast network connection and a good SSD can do it in about 2.5 hours. One of our goals was to reduce or eliminate the reliance on snapshots for mainnet, and I think we have accomplished that goal with the new sync speed. We have also streamlined the in-memory structures for the blockchain which shaves some memory use. There are so many goodies here it is hard to summarize them all. I would like to thank all of the contributors to this release, but especially thank @cyrossignol, whose incredible contributions formed the backbone of this release. I would also like to pay special thanks to @barton2526, @caraka, and @Quezacoatl1, who tirelessly helped during the testing and polishing phase on testnet with testing and repeated builds for all architectures. The developers are proud to present this release to the community and we believe this represents the starting point for a true renaissance for Gridcoin!
Most significantly, nodes calculate research rewards directly from the magnitudes in EACH superblock between stakes instead of using a two- or three- point average based on a CPID's current magnitude and the magnitude for the CPID when it last staked. For those long-timers in the community, this has been referred to as "Superblock Windows," and was first done in proof-of-concept form by @denravonska.
Network magnitude unit pinned to a static value of 0.25
Max research reward allowed per block raised to 16384 GRC (from 12750 GRC)
New CPIDs begin accruing research rewards from the first superblock that contains the CPID instead of from the time of the beacon advertisement
500 GRC research reward limit for a CPID's first stake
6-month expiration for unclaimed rewards
10-block spacing requirement between research reward claims
Rolling 5-day payment-per-day limit
Legacy tolerances for floating-point error and time drift
The need to include a valid copy of a CPID's magnitude in a claim
10-block emission adjustment interval for the magnitude unit
One-time beacon activation requires that participants temporarily change their usernames to a verification code at one whitelisted BOINC project
Verification codes of pending beacons expire after 3 days
Self-service beacon removal
Burn fee for beacon advertisement increased from 0.00001 GRC to 0.5 GRC
Rain addresses derived from beacon keys instead of a default wallet address
Beacon expiration determined as of the current block instead of the previous block
The ability for developers to remove beacons
The ability to sign research reward claims with non-current but unexpired beacons
As a reminder:
Beacons expire after 6 months pass (180 days)
Beacons can be renewed after 5 months pass (150 days)
Renewed beacons must be signed with the same key as the original beacon
Magnitudes less than 1 include two fractional places
Magnitudes greater than or equal to 1 but less than 10 include one fractional place
A valid superblock must match a scraper convergence
Superblock popularity election mechanics
Yes/no/abstain and single-choice response types (no user-facing support yet)
To create a poll, a maximum of 250 UTXOs for a single address must add up to 100000 GRC. These are selected from the largest downwards.
Burn fee for creating polls scaled by the number of UTXOs claimed
50 GRC for a poll contract
0.001 GRC per claimed UTXO
Burn fee for casting votes scaled by the number of UTXOs claimed
0.01 GRC for a vote contract
0.01 GRC to claim magnitude
0.01 GRC per claimed address
0.001 GRC per claimed UTXO
Maximum length of a poll title: 80 characters
Maximum length of a poll question: 100 characters
Maximum length of a poll discussion website URL: 100 characters
Maximum number of poll choices: 20
Maximum length of a poll choice label: 100 characters
Magnitude, CPID count, and participant count poll weight types

Bitcoin is a decentralized system, any user of which could control the movement of their own funds. You can use the currency to make transactions, pay for purchases, receive transfers, and exchange it for cash. For transactions, a special address is used, encrypted with a 16-character key. The buyer decodes the code to transfer bitcoins to the specified address.
Mining is a process that ensures the security of the BTC system, which adds new blocks to the blockchain in chronological order (new transactions). Blocks are added when the codes are decrypted, the transaction is completed, and bitcoins are transferred or exchanged. The main cryptocurrency is generated by miners using software that solves cryptographic problems. The reward for a new block is agreed by all network participants, but usually amounts to 12.5 bitcoins. Part of the user fees for transactions also goes to reward the miners. Cryptographic tasks become more complex every year to prevent inflation (mining complexity).
Features of the transaction
Anonymity. The address that Bitcoin is sent to consists of 30 characters. You can track the flow of transactions, but the address is not always associated with a real person.
Security. The balance of bitcoins is fixed in a cryptographic system with a public key. Only the owner of a private key can send cryptocurrency to other addresses.
Unable to cancel. It is no longer possible to cancel the transaction after the transaction has been completed.
Deregulation. Everyone can use cryptocurrency.
Coverage and speed. Information about the transaction is transmitted incredibly quickly, and confirmation is received within a few minutes. No one knows the buyer’s physical location.
Where to buy Bitcoin?
There are Deposit systems that use crypto-exchanges. So, to buy Bitcoin, you will first need to top up your balance, buy the digital currency itself, and then withdraw it to your Bitcoin wallet, paying a Commission for withdrawing coins. The cheapest method of buying is buying on the stock exchange. The exchange rate is as close as possible to the market rate.
The current exchange rate of the coin is calculated based on the average price on the largest currency exchanges. For example, you can track the exchange rate on our Bitniex exchange. The Bitcoin exchange rate is constantly changing, during the day it can change by 10% in one direction or another.
The choice of crypto-currency wallet
A cryptocurrency wallet is a place where digital currency will be stored. The most secure method of storage is using paper or electronic wallets.

IOTA funds were stolen (3.49Ti ~500k$) on 12th March 2020 after network relaunch [longread]
Hey CC comunity! First of all, sorry for posting it a bit late I have some serious changes in my lifestyle and business due to Coronavirus situation in the world. For those who are infected I wish to get well soon and all the rest to stay safe and to stay home. Here is my short story:On March 12th I made similar but short post regarding my stolen IOTA in the sub IOTA. First of all I met around 50% downvotes, I don’t know why but it seems that IOTA’s community don’t want to see posts regarding stolen IOTA, I got a lot of critics for using Trinity wallet instead of hardware and so on. But I see nothing strange using desktop wallet and it doesn’t matter whether it is IOTA Trinity or Bitcoin QT or Ethereum wallet unless in has strong manually typed password, VPN connection and some other security things. Or maybe IOTA’s community was afraid of unwanted bad attention during that market crash that day. So because of that experience I decided to make a post here at CC. Some short reminder of what happened before my funds got stolen (https://status.iota.org) Some news:https://www.coindesk.com/iota-foundation-suspends-network-probes-fund-theft-in-trinity-wallethttps://cointelegraph.com/news/iota-foundation-investigates-funds-allegedly-stolen-from-trinity-walletshttps://www.theblockcrypto.com/post/55955/iota-foundation-funds-stolen-users-of-trinity-wallet If you don’t want to read that news here are some facts with timestamp: February 12th 2020 - 18:55 As a precaution we ask you to keep your Trinity wallet closed for now. February 12th 2020 - 19:20 After initial investigation we decided to turn off the Coordinator to make sure no further theft can occur until we find out the root cause of these thefts. (Lets say: “blockchain stopped”) February 14th 2020 - 17:50 We have found the exploit. February 15th 2020 - 00:50 After successfully identifying the attack on Trinity through a third-party integration February 17th 2020 - 02:23 We have just released a safe version of Trinity Desktop to allow users to check their balance and transactions. This version (1.4.1) removes the vulnerability announced on 12th February 2020. (I’ve installed this particular version) February 21st 2020 - 18:43 ACTION MAY BE REQUIRED TO PROTECT YOUR TOKENS IN TRINITY. February 24th I left my country for some working trip February 26th 2020 - 13:10 We are currently in the testing phase of the migration tools, once testing completes the tools will be audited by a external party. If this all goes well we are aiming to release these tools later this week. February 29th 2020 - 19:15 The Seed Migration Tool is now available. March 6th 2020 - 15:17 REMINDER: You have until 5PM (UTC), Saturday, 7th March to migrate your seed. I’m still out of the country but I’m pretty sure I’m safe coz I’ve installed 1.4.1 wallet which removes the vulnerability. March 8th 2020 - 18:15 The migration period has ended. I got back to my country March 10th 2020 - 16:45 We are aiming to resume value transactions around 5PM CET today. March 10th 2020 - 18:15 The network coordinator has resumed operation. (Let’s say “blockchain restarted”) Now my turn: My balance by that time (https://imgur.com/EJiB6it) March 10th I’ve decided to send my IOTA to exchange until I buy Hardware wallet and sort it out how it worksTest transaction to exchange 5Gi:JQ9DZPGUFLBJTLDLIKQBWLUBOXJULKIQFSWKNYVFIHETSZJOTGRYEZZELE9BZFVUEBGATEITPDTXXHZVD It took exchange 24 hours to credit it to my balance… March 11thFirst large transaction to the exchange (~23% of my net holdings of IOTA) 1Ti9YGGTHDKARCBVEPWUYURYEAKSKUNITGCGKSCJRXBVKHLBHEXXTNAWOFNPOBGHG9IKCZRABFNBJHVWNZIZ All over again… 24h to credit it to my balance.

At the same time I’ve start to search for some technical support through over official telegram groups: iotatangle (https://imgur.com/McmrF3L)I’ve send a message where I’ve stated that my funds were stolen after network relaunch. Got some response from user Basti he invited me to another group with general discussion.screen shot 1 (https://imgur.com/hvDuoQA)screen shot 2 (https://imgur.com/MewdNm5) Our short dialogue continued at the general discussion group iotacafe (https://imgur.com/e9ErcPW) Where Basti introduced me to the IOTA Foundation member Antonio Nardella (https://imgur.com/WxZRk8N) Before I started my conversation with Antonio I decide to get some information about him. I’ve found a Medium post with some welcoming words to Antonio Nardella. (https://imgur.com/KK4zoOv) telegram(https://imgur.com/VquNCpi) medium Seems legit. Of course I couldn't be 100% sure it was him but the information he asked for wasn’t really sensitive so decided to share all I knew and all I did. (https://imgur.com/X3Ha02Q) He also mentioned a wallet integrated service MoonPay, whether I used the wallet with this service or not and it didn’t matter if I used the service it self. I’ve informed him that I used 1.4.1 wallet which was recommended to install on February 17th 2020(https://imgur.com/iZdNcm7) When he gathered all the necessary information regarding loss of funds he took the time for sending this information for investigation team. After a long awaited answer I got the same day this: “Hello, I was informed that the loss of tokens is associated to the person/team responsible for the Trinity wallet attack via a third-party dependency from Moonpay. As suggested on https://status.iota.org/, please file a report with the local police and to cite the following case number when doing so: LKA Berlin, Center for Cybercrime, case number: 200213-1717-i00290.”(https://imgur.com/Gov1v0i) So, reinstalling the wallet didn't help me to avoid the loss of funds. Well if my funds are proved to be stolen then it means - yes, I’ve used the Trinity wallet between the December 17th 2019 and the February 17th 2020. And yes, I wasn’t able to make seed transition during the given period. I was out of the country starting form Feb 24th till March 8th. I can even proove it with my border passing stamps… You know I didn’t use to take 4.5Ti with me just in case I would need an urgent seed transition. Could you imagine thousands of people with their multimillion Bitcoin holdings carrying private keys everyday with them just in case they would need seed transition… The funds were stolen not by my mistake but IOTA developers/foundation/etc (lets say IOTA team) mistake. At the end of my story I want to take your attention to the fact that I didn’t compromise my PC neither wallet nor password nor seed. All my fault was for using the desktop wallet… How can you imagine your user without using your software/services/etc… I want to publicly call IOTA team (especially mr David Sonstebo) to cover not only those which were to happen back in the Feb 2020 but all the loses which were caused by that wallet vulnerability.

Hello! I am fairly new to Bitcoin, but one year ago, I made a Bitcoin address on Bitcoin-Qt, but I stopped using it, because the whole database downloading took so much space on my disk. I have my wallet.dat file, but I don't know, where can I use it. I tried Electrum, but it seems that the wallet.dat import doesn't work there. Can you recommend me any other wallets, where I can import that file? Thank you.
Help me recover my bitcoins from my wallet backups.
Hey guys. The history: In 2013 or 2014 I bought 1 BTC and I stored it in one wallet (don't remember which). I have a wallet.dat in my PC and an Armory wallet backup on pdf (paper). The Armory Backup was encrypted and now I can't see public addresses, but AFAIK this shouldn't be an issue because the backup was done later than the last transfer. How can I know if there are bitcoins in the paper wallet? I've had lots of problems with Armory and can't manage to sync the blockchain. On the otherhand I have a HDD from that era with Bitcoin QT installed and a wallet.dat there. The thing is that I can't access that wallet and I don't know if the funds are there. How can I tell if there are BTCs there? I checked the last public key used and still it has the money in it (checked n blockchain.info) The last option is that I transferred that 1 BTC to other wallet that I lost and never backed-up, but I think this is very unlikely. Is there anything I can do to find my missing bitcoins?
Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything. The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years. In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.
UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2
This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables. NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.
Builds are now done through Gitian
Calls to getblocktemplate will fail if the segwit rule is not specified. Calling getblocktemplate without segwit specified is almost certainly a misconfiguration since doing so results in lower rewards for the miner. Failed calls will produce an error message describing how to enable the segwit rule.
A warning is printed if an unrecognized section name is used in the configuration file. Recognized sections are [test], [main], and [regtest].
Four new options are available for configuring the maximum number of messages that ZMQ will queue in memory (the "high water mark") before dropping additional messages. The default value is 1,000, the same as was used for previous releases.
The rpcallowip option can no longer be used to automatically listen on all network interfaces. Instead, the rpcbind parameter must be used to specify the IP addresses to listen on. Listening for RPC commands over a public network connection is insecure and should be disabled, so a warning is now printed if a user selects such a configuration. If you need to expose RPC in order to use a tool like Docker, ensure you only bind RPC to your localhost, e.g. docker run [...] -p 127.0.0.1:1441:1441 (this is an extra :1441 over the normal Docker port specification).
The rpcpassword option now causes a startup error if the password set in the configuration file contains a hash character (#), as it's ambiguous whether the hash character is meant for the password or as a comment.
The whitelistforcerelay option is used to relay transactions from whitelisted peers even when not accepted to the mempool. This option now defaults to being off, so that changes in policy and disconnect/ban behavior will not cause a node that is whitelisting another to be dropped by peers.
A new short about the JSON-RPC interface describes cases where the results of anRPC might contain inconsistencies between data sourced from differentsubsystems, such as wallet state and mempool state.
A new document introduces Groestlcoin Core's BIP174 interface, which is used to allow multiple programs to collaboratively work to create, sign, and broadcast new transactions. This is useful for offline (cold storage) wallets, multisig wallets, coinjoin implementations, and many other cases where two or more programs need to interact to generate a complete transaction.
The output script descriptor (https://github.com/groestlcoin/groestlcoin/blob/mastedoc/descriptors.md) documentation has been updated with information about new features in this still-developing language for describing the output scripts that a wallet or other program wants to receive notifications for, such as which addresses it wants to know received payments. The language is currently used in multiple new and updated RPCs described in these release notes and is expected to be adapted to other RPCs and to the underlying wallet structure.
A new --disable-bip70 option may be passed to ./configure to prevent Groestlcoin-Qt from being built with support for the BIP70 payment protocol or from linking libssl. As the payment protocol has exposed Groestlcoin Core to libssl vulnerabilities in the past, builders who don't need BIP70 support are encouraged to use this option to reduce their exposure to future vulnerabilities.
The minimum required version of Qt (when building the GUI) has been increased from 5.2 to 5.5.1 (the depends system provides 5.9.7)
getnodeaddresses returns peer addresses known to this node. It may be used to find nodes to connect to without using a DNS seeder.
listwalletdir returns a list of wallets in the wallet directory (either the default wallet directory or the directory configured bythe -walletdir parameter).
getrpcinfo returns runtime details of the RPC server. Currently, it returns an array of the currently active commands and how long they've been running.
deriveaddresses returns one or more addresses corresponding to an output descriptor.
getdescriptorinfo accepts a descriptor and returns information aboutit, including its computed checksum.
joinpsbts merges multiple distinct PSBTs into a single PSBT. The multiple PSBTs must have different inputs. The resulting PSBT will contain every input and output from all the PSBTs. Any signatures provided in any of the PSBTs will be dropped.
analyzepsbt examines a PSBT and provides information about what the PSBT contains and the next steps that need to be taken in order to complete the transaction. For each input of a PSBT, analyze psbt provides information about what information is missing for that input, including whether a UTXO needs to be provided, what pubkeys still need to be provided, which scripts need to be provided, and what signatures are still needed. Every input will also list which role is needed to complete that input, and analyzepsbt will also list the next role in general needed to complete the PSBT. analyzepsbt will also provide the estimated fee rate and estimated virtual size of the completed transaction if it has enough information to do so.
utxoupdatepsbt searches the set of Unspent Transaction Outputs (UTXOs) to find the outputs being spent by the partial transaction. PSBTs need to have the UTXOs being spent to be provided because the signing algorithm requires information from the UTXO being spent. For segwit inputs, only the UTXO itself is necessary. For non-segwit outputs, the entire previous transaction is needed so that signers can be sure that they are signing the correct thing. Unfortunately, because the UTXO set only contains UTXOs and not full transactions, utxoupdatepsbt will only add the UTXO for segwit inputs.
getpeerinfo now returns an additional minfeefilter field set to the peer's BIP133 fee filter. You can use this to detect that you have peers that are willing to accept transactions below the default minimum relay fee.
The mempool RPCs, such as getrawmempool with verbose=true, now return an additional "bip125-replaceable" value indicating whether thetransaction (or its unconfirmed ancestors) opts-in to asking nodes and miners to replace it with a higher-feerate transaction spending any of the same inputs.
settxfee previously silently ignored attempts to set the fee below the allowed minimums. It now prints a warning. The special value of"0" may still be used to request the minimum value.
getaddressinfo now provides an ischange field indicating whether the wallet used the address in a change output.
importmulti has been updated to support P2WSH, P2WPKH, P2SH-P2WPKH, and P2SH-P2WSH. Requests for P2WSH and P2SH-P2WSH accept an additional witnessscript parameter.
importmulti now returns an additional warnings field for each request with an array of strings explaining when fields are being ignored or are inconsistent, if there are any.
getaddressinfo now returns an additional solvable Boolean field when Groestlcoin Core knows enough about the address's scriptPubKey, optional redeemScript, and optional witnessScript for the wallet to be able to generate an unsigned input spending funds sent to that address.
The getaddressinfo, listunspent, and scantxoutset RPCs now return an additional desc field that contains an output descriptor containing all key paths and signing information for the address (except for the private key). The desc field is only returned for getaddressinfo and listunspent when the address is solvable.
importprivkey will preserve previously-set labels for addresses or public keys corresponding to the private key being imported. For example, if you imported a watch-only address with the label "coldwallet" in earlier releases of Groestlcoin Core, subsequently importing the private key would default to resetting the address's label to the default empty-string label (""). In this release, the previous label of "cold wallet" will be retained. If you optionally specify any label besides the default when calling importprivkey, the new label will be applied to the address.
getmininginfo now omits currentblockweight and currentblocktx when a block was never assembled via RPC on this node.
The getrawtransaction RPC & REST endpoints no longer check the unspent UTXO set for a transaction. The remaining behaviors are as follows:
If a blockhash is provided, check the corresponding block.
If no blockhash is provided, check the mempool.
If no blockhash is provided but txindex is enabled, also check txindex.
unloadwallet is now synchronous, meaning it will not return until the wallet is fully unloaded.
importmulti now supports importing of addresses from descriptors. A desc parameter can be provided instead of the "scriptPubKey" in are quest, as well as an optional range for ranged descriptors to specify the start and end of the range to import. Descriptors with key origin information imported through importmulti will have their key origin information stored in the wallet for use with creating PSBTs.
listunspent has been modified so that it also returns witnessScript, the witness script in the case of a P2WSH orP2SH-P2WSH output.
createwallet now has an optional blank argument that can be used to create a blank wallet. Blank wallets do not have any keys or HDseed. They cannot be opened in software older than 2.18.2. Once a blank wallet has a HD seed set (by using sethdseed) or private keys, scripts, addresses, and other watch only things have been imported, the wallet is no longer blank and can be opened in 2.17.2. Encrypting a blank wallet will also set a HD seed for it.
signrawtransaction is removed after being deprecated and hidden behind a special configuration option in version 2.17.2.
The 'account' API is removed after being deprecated in v2.17.2 The 'label' API was introduced in v2.17.2 as a replacement for accounts. See the release notes from v2.17.2 for a full description of the changes from the 'account' API to the 'label' API.
addwitnessaddress is removed after being deprecated in version 2.16.0.
generate is deprecated and will be fully removed in a subsequent major version. This RPC is only used for testing, but its implementation reached across multiple subsystems (wallet and mining), so it is being deprecated to simplify the wallet-node interface. Projects that are using generate for testing purposes should transition to using the generatetoaddress RPC, which does not require or use the wallet component. Calling generatetoaddress with an address returned by the getnewaddress RPC gives the same functionality as the old generate RPC. To continue using generate in this version, restart groestlcoind with the -deprecatedrpc=generate configuration option.
Be reminded that parts of the validateaddress command have been deprecated and moved to getaddressinfo. The following deprecated fields have moved to getaddressinfo: ismine, iswatchonly,script, hex, pubkeys, sigsrequired, pubkey, embedded,iscompressed, label, timestamp, hdkeypath, hdmasterkeyid.
The addresses field has been removed from the validateaddressand getaddressinfo RPC methods. This field was confusing since it referred to public keys using their P2PKH address. Clients should use the embedded.address field for P2SH or P2WSH wrapped addresses, and pubkeys for inspecting multisig participants.
A new /rest/blockhashbyheight/ endpoint is added for fetching the hash of the block in the current best blockchain based on its height (how many blocks it is after the Genesis Block).
A new Window menu is added alongside the existing File, Settings, and Help menus. Several items from the other menus that opened new windows have been moved to this new Window menu.
In the Send tab, the checkbox for "pay only the required fee" has been removed. Instead, the user can simply decrease the value in the Custom Fee rate field all the way down to the node's configured minimumrelay fee.
In the Overview tab, the watch-only balance will be the only balance shown if the wallet was created using the createwallet RPC and thedisable_private_keys parameter was set to true.
The launch-on-startup option is no longer available on macOS if compiled with macosx min version greater than 10.11 (useCXXFLAGS="-mmacosx-version-min=10.11" CFLAGS="-mmacosx-version-min=10.11" for setting the deployment sdkversion)
A new groestlcoin-wallet tool is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables. Without needing to use any RPCs, this tool can currently create a new wallet file or display some basic information about an existing wallet, such as whether the wallet is encrypted, whether it uses an HD seed, how many transactions it contains, and how many address book entries it has.
Since version 2.16.0, Groestlcoin Core's built-in wallet has defaulted to generating P2SH-wrapped segwit addresses when users want to receive payments. These addresses are backwards compatible with all widely used software. Starting with Groestlcoin Core 2.20.1 (expected about a year after 2.18.2), Groestlcoin Core will default to native segwitaddresses (bech32) that provide additional fee savings and other benefits. Currently, many wallets and services already support sending to bech32 addresses, and if the Groestlcoin Core project sees enough additional adoption, it will instead default to bech32 receiving addresses in Groestlcoin Core 2.19.1. P2SH-wrapped segwit addresses will continue to be provided if the user requests them in the GUI or by RPC, and anyone who doesn't want the update will be able to configure their default address type. (Similarly, pioneering users who want to change their default now may set the addresstype=bech32 configuration option in any Groestlcoin Core release from 2.16.0 up.)
BIP 61 reject messages are now deprecated. Reject messages have no use case on the P2P network and are only logged for debugging by most network nodes. Furthermore, they increase bandwidth and can be harmful for privacy and security. It has been possible to disable BIP 61 messages since v2.17.2 with the -enablebip61=0 option. BIP 61 messages will be disabled by default in a future version, before being removed entirely.
The submitblock RPC previously returned the reason a rejected block was invalid the first time it processed that block but returned a generic "duplicate" rejection message on subsequent occasions it processed the same block. It now always returns the fundamental reason for rejecting an invalid block and only returns "duplicate" for valid blocks it has already accepted.
A new submitheader RPC allows submitting block headers independently from their block. This is likely only useful for testing.
The signrawtransactionwithkey and signrawtransactionwithwallet RPCs have been modified so that they also optionally accept a witnessScript, the witness script in the case of a P2WSH orP2SH-P2WSH output. This is compatible with the change to listunspent.
For the walletprocesspsbt and walletcreatefundedpsbt RPCs, if thebip32derivs parameter is set to true but the key metadata for a public key has not been updated yet, then that key will have a derivation path as if it were just an independent key (i.e. no derivation path and its master fingerprint is itself).
The -usehd configuration option was removed in version 2.16.0 From that version onwards, all new wallets created are hierarchical deterministic wallets. This release makes specifying -usehd an invalid configuration option.
This release allows peers that your node automatically disconnected for misbehaviour (e.g. sending invalid data) to reconnect to your node if you have unused incoming connection slots. If your slots fill up, a misbehaving node will be disconnected to make room for nodes without a history of problems (unless the misbehaving node helps your node in some other way, such as by connecting to a part of the Internet from which you don't have many other peers). Previously, Groestlcoin Core banned the IP addresses of misbehaving peers for a period (default of 1 day); this was easily circumvented by attackers with multiple IP addresses. If you manually ban a peer, such as by using the setban RPC, all connections from that peer will still be rejected.
The key metadata will need to be upgraded the first time that the HDseed is available. For unencrypted wallets this will occur on wallet loading. For encrypted wallets this will occur the first time the wallet is unlocked.
Newly encrypted wallets will no longer require restarting the software. Instead such wallets will be completely unloaded and reloaded to achieve the same effect.
A sub-project of Bitcoin Core now provides Hardware Wallet Interaction (HWI) scripts that allow command-line users to use several popular hardware key management devices with Groestlcoin Core. See their project page for details.
This release changes the Random Number Generator (RNG) used from OpenSSL to Groestlcoin Core's own implementation, although entropy gathered by Groestlcoin Core is fed out to OpenSSL and then read back in when the program needs strong randomness. This moves Groestlcoin Core a little closer to no longer needing to depend on OpenSSL, a dependency that has caused security issues in the past. The new implementation gathers entropy from multiple sources, including from hardware supporting the rdseed CPU instruction.
On macOS, Groestlcoin Core now opts out of application CPU throttling ("app nap") during initial blockchain download, when catching up from over 100 blocks behind the current chain tip, or when reindexing chain data. This helps prevent these operations from taking an excessively long time because the operating system is attempting to conserve power.
How to Upgrade?
Windows If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer. OSX If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications. Ubuntu http://groestlcoin.org/forum/index.php?topic=441.0
ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet
Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network. GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.
Groestlcoin Mainnet & Testnet supported
Multiple wallet support
Electrum - Support for both random and custom peers
Biometric + Pin authentication
Custom fee selection
Import mnemonic phrases via manual entry or scanning
BIP39 Passphrase functionality
Support for Segwit-compatible & legacy addresses in settings
Support individual private key sweeping
UTXO blacklisting - Accessible via the Transaction Detail view, this allows users to blacklist any utxo that they do not wish to include in their list of available utxo's when sending transactions. Blacklisting a utxo excludes its amount from the wallet's total balance.
Ability to Sign & Verify Messages
Support BitID for password-free authentication
Coin Control - This can be accessed from the Send Transaction view and basically allows users to select from a list of available UTXO's to include in their transaction.
HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled. HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user. Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.
Simplified payment verification for fast mobile performance
Groestlcoin Seed Savior is a tool for recovering BIP39 seed phrases. This tool is meant to help users with recovering a slightly incorrect Groestlcoin mnemonic phrase (AKA backup or seed). You can enter an existing BIP39 mnemonic and get derived addresses in various formats. To find out if one of the suggested addresses is the right one, you can click on the suggested address to check the address' transaction history on a block explorer.
If a word is wrong, the tool will try to suggest the closest option.
If a word is missing or unknown, please type "?" instead and the tool will find all relevant options.
NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator. VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline. If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address. VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase. VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).
Fixed size arithmetic
Fast Modular Inversion (Delayed Right Shift 62 bits)
SecpK1 Fast modular multiplication (2 steps folding 512bits to 256bits using 64 bits digits)
Use some properties of elliptic curve to generate more keys
SSE Secure Hash Algorithm SHA256 and RIPEMD160 (CPU)
Groestlcoin EasyVanity 2020 is a windows app built from the ground-up and makes it easier than ever before to create your very own bespoke bech32 address(es) when whilst not connected to the internet. If you're tired of the random, cryptic bech32 addresses generated by regular Groestlcoin clients, then Groestlcoin EasyVanity2020 is the right choice for you to create a more personalised bech32 address. This 2020 version uses the new VanitySearch to generate not only legacy addresses (F prefix) but also Bech32 addresses (grs1 prefix).
Ability to continue finding keys after first one is found
Includes warning on start-up if connected to the internet
Ability to output keys to a text file (And shows button to open that directory)
Show and hide the private key with a simple toggle switch
Show full output of commands
Ability to choose between Processor (CPU) and Graphics Card (GPU) ( NVidia ONLY! )
Features both a Light and Dark Material Design-Style Themes
Free software - MIT. Anyone can audit the code.
Written in C# - The code is short, and easy to review.
Groestlcoin WPF is an alternative full node client with optional lightweight 'thin-client' mode based on WPF. Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) is one of Microsoft's latest approaches to a GUI framework, used with the .NET framework. Its main advantages over the original Groestlcoin client include support for exporting blockchain.dat and including a lite wallet mode. This wallet was previously deprecated but has been brought back to life with modern standards.
Works via TOR or SOCKS5 proxy
Can use bootstrap.dat format as blockchain database
Import/Export blockchain to/from bootstrap.dat
Import wallet.dat from Groestlcoin-qt wallet
Export wallet to wallet.dat
Use both groestlcoin-wpf and groestlcoin-qt with the same addresses in parallel. When you send money from one program, the transaction will automatically be visible on the other wallet.
Rescan blockchain with a simple mouse click
Works as a full node and listens to port 1331 (listening port can be changed)
Fast Block verifying, parallel processing on multi-core CPUs
Mine Groestlcoins with your CPU by a simple mouse click
All private keys are kept encrypted on your local machine (or on a USB stick)
Lite - Has a lightweight "thin client" mode which does not require a new user to download the entire Groestlcoin chain and store it
Free and decentralised - Open Source under GNU license
Fixed Import/Export to wallet.dat
Rescan wallet option
Change wallet password option
Address type and Change type options through *.conf file
Import from bootstrap.dat - It is a flat, binary file containing Groestlcoin blockchain data, from the genesis block through a recent height. All versions automatically validate and import the file "grs.bootstrap.dat" in the GRS directory. Grs.bootstrap.dat is compatible with Qt wallet. GroestlCoin-Qt can load from it.
In Full mode file %APPDATA%\Groestlcoin-WPF\GRS\GRS.bootstrap.dat is full blockchain in standard bootstrap.dat format and can be used with other clients.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node. It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node. Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine. Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in. Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet. Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.
Use your own node
Uses less CPU and RAM than ElectrumX
Used intermittently rather than needing to be always-on
Doesn't require an index of every Groestlcoin address ever used like on ElectrumX
UPDATED – Android Wallet 7.38.1 - Main Net + Test Net
The app allows you to send and receive Groestlcoin on your device using QR codes and URI links. When using this app, please back up your wallet and email them to yourself! This will save your wallet in a password protected file. Then your coins can be retrieved even if you lose your phone.
Add confidence messages, helping users to understand the confidence state of their payments.
Handle edge case when restoring via an external app.
Count devices with a memory class of 128 MB as low ram.
Introduce dark mode on Android 10 devices.
Reduce memory usage of PIN-protected wallets.
Tapping on the app's version will reveal a checksum of the APK that was installed.
Fix issue with confirmation of transactions that empty your wallet.
Groestlcoin Sentinel is a great solution for anyone who wants the convenience and utility of a hot wallet for receiving payments directly into their cold storage (or hardware wallets). Sentinel accepts XPUB's, YPUB'S, ZPUB's and individual Groestlcoin address. Once added you will be able to view balances, view transactions, and (in the case of XPUB's, YPUB's and ZPUB's) deterministically generate addresses for that wallet. Groestlcoin Sentinel is a fork of Groestlcoin Samourai Wallet with all spending and transaction building code removed.
I'll preface this post by saying that I understand very little about Bitcoin and was hoping for a fast, painless money transfer. Clearly I was wrong. I recently decided to withdraw a significant amount of money from a website that would only export funds via Bitcoin. After doing the minimal amount of research, I downloaded Bitcoin Core, opened it (choosing to save the data to my startup disk), exported a "receiving address" and initiated the transfer on the website. I thought that I was all set. When I saw that the money had been withdrawn from the website, I went to check my Bitcoin Core wallet and I saw that it had crashed because I didn't have enough disk space to synchronize the blockchain. I am now trying to change the storage path to my external hard drive, but cannot figure out how to save the blockchain data to the hard drive instead of my startup disk. Each time I open Bitcoin Core, it crashes again because of the low startup disk space. I have the "receiving address" on hand but I am afraid that I will lose this money. I suppose I can boil my problems down into a handful of fundamental questions:
Can I save the Blockchain data to an external hard drive?
If I initiated a Bitcoin transfer and my Bitcoin Core crashed, will I still receive the payment?
How can I retrieve my funds if I have to uninstall/reinstall Bitcoin Core?
As you can likely tell, I'm woefully confused and disoriented with the whole Bitcoin system. When you're not acclimated to all of the technical jargon, looking up solutions can only complicate your understanding of everything. If anyone could help a beginner out, I would be tremendously grateful.
Need help having one wallet on multiple computers...any guides or saints available?
It's pretty self explanatory...with all the new emphasis about keeping your in your own storage and not online, I'm trying to make the move. However, I'm having a hard time with it because I liked being able to access the online wallet from any of my computers. I can't find a clear step by step guide of this process, every one I've seen assumes you already know where everything is and what every value means...I don't. I need an idiot's approach to this. So far I've got bitcoin-qt running on one computer with a balance, and the wallet.dat file is encrypted and backed up. Now what do I do? $1 bitcointip for whomever can help me :)
Wallet Question: With an offline Armory wallet do I really need Bitcoin-QT? Can't I just generate an address on the offline computer and add that address to my Blockchain.info account as a watch only address? From there won't I be able to receive payments and view the balance?
Or am I missing something (like all of my bitcoins)?
I'm using the bitcoin qt wallet. I have $0.50 in it right now and would like to buy my first btc tonight and add it. I'm having a hard time understanding the system though. This 50 cents I have is attached to the address string and that is stored on the public blockchain, telling everyone that whoever owns that address has 50 cents. But no one knows whos address it is or can do anything with it unless they have the private key to add to it that allows it to work? Where is my private key? Does this wallet keep it hidden from me too and uses it behind the scenes automatically when I go to the send coins screen? Also, I have 2 addresses I created in the Receive coins tab and I'm not sure which one holds that 50 cents. How do you figure out which one it is, I assume you don't want a huge list of addresses cluttering up your wallet, you'd want to consolidate all your btc into one address? How safe am I just using this wallet on my machine? I don't usually have security problems and I'm pretty safe about it, but I understand paper wallets even less.
How do I move private keys from Bitcoin-QT to another wallet without having the blockchain downloaded?
I currently access my bitcoins on Bitcoin-QT and have used a pretty good passphrase to encrypt the wallet.dat file. I would like to eventually move my coins to a paper wallet for offline storage, but currently want to get my coins over to blockchain.info (I set it up the account on a thumb-drive linux system with 2FA and a great password). I've read instances of people decrypting their wallet, then finding some unknown malware on their computer immediately emptying their wallets. I don't want to rely on the computer I currently have my wallet.dat file on just in case this happens to me. I'm trying to get my private keys into something like electrum or multibit using pywallet to decrypt my wallet.dat on a fresh linux system (thumb-drive again). However, the format from pywallet doesn't seem to be right to get it on electrum nor multibit. Is there a special way to extract the private keys from wallet.dat to import them into multibit or electrum? I don't think using Bitcoin-QT on my thumb drive is an option since the blockchain is so huge and I think the blockchain is needed to do anything with Bitcoin-QT. I didn't find too much help via google or the security guide on the right side of this page.
Proposed Statement Of Work (SOW) For PIVX Blockchain Wallet Tutorial Campaign
Date: February 11, 2019 Client’s Name: PIVX Project Name: PIVX Blockchain Wallet Tutorial Campaign Representatives For Each Cryptocurrency Project: PIVX Community Representatives Forwww.Cryptocurrency.Market: Denni Lovejoy, Software Tutorial Specialist https://twitter.com/DenniLovejoy
Currently there are over 2,000 cryptocurrency projects listed on coinmarketcap.com. Many of these cryptocurrency projects have their own official “decentralized wallets”, use recommended third-party wallets or are in the process of developing their wallet software. For example, the PIVX community created the PIVX QT Wallet. Many newcomers entering the crypto market will not be computer or software savvy and will not properly set up, protect and secure their cryptocurrency wallets. Crypto projects such as PIVX will need Blockchain Tutorials for the PIVX Wallet to help new users understand how to use the wallet correctly. The goal of this proposal is to obtain funding to create:
Create a set of PIVX tutorials to help educate the public on how to use the the PIVX wallet and PIVX Central account in a step by step user friendly way. This set of tutorials will include:
How to download and install the PIVX wallet
How to send and receive PIVX using the PIVX wallet
How to backup, protect and update PIVX using the wallet
How to set up the deterministic zPIV wallet and stake zPIV
How to make a PIVX Central account, upvote/ downvote, and comment
How to make a PIVX proposal
My name is Denni Lovejoy, I am a Blockchain Tutorial Specialist at www.Cryptocurrency.Market and you can view the quality of my past blockchain tutorials here: Blockchain Tutorial Playlist Blockchain Tutorial #41 - How To Setup A PIVX Wallet I started creating blockchain tutorials to help newbies avoid getting hacked by bad actors in the crypto community. I chose to work with Tai Zen & Leon Fu Dot Com’s www.Cryptocurrency.Market channel because they were the 1st and only channel on the internet back in early 2013 that I found to be talking about trading and investing in bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. For example, they were the only channel that I know of to recommend investing in Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Stratis, Monero, Decred, NXT, Antshares, etc. when everyone else was afraid to do so. These coins all turned out to be huge winners. I learned from the www.Cryptocurrency.Market channel that the #1 most important thing in cryptocurrencies is to survive. Unfortunately, many people who have bought cryptocurrencies lost them because of a lack of security, privacy and formal education on how to use their digital wallets correctly. The lack of blockchain tutorials amongst all cryptocurrencies is why I started my Blockchain Tutorial playlist on the Cryptocurrency Market channel. I believe uneducated newbies in the crypto community who do not understand what it takes to secure, protect and use their digital wallets will mistakenly leave their crypto on exchanges which is subject to being hacked or stolen and will not back up their private keys. I have been monitoring the digital wallet space for quite some time now and I have chosen to associate my brand/ reputation & seek funding from the PIVX community for due to the project’s a) professionalism b) software engineering/technical abilities and most importantly c) a working privacy cryptocurrency and lastly d) the PIVX team has working decentralized wallets located on https://pivx.org/wallet/. For the above reasons and the fact that I am more comfortable working with people I have personally met in person, I RESPECTFULLY submit this formal proposal to the PIVX community to request funding for myself to create an ambitious, 3rd party, independent, unbiased blockchain tutorials to educate the public on how to use the PIVX wallet and PIVX Central account correctly.
To create a series of tutorial videos to:
Educate the public on how to setup and use the PIVX wallet with a set of user friendly Blockchain Tutorials.
Educate the public on how to set up a PIVX Central account and make a PIVX proposal.
Educate the public on how to avoid common mistakes and pitfalls in key parts of the tutorials.

In this phase, I will provide the step by step details on how to make a PIVX Proposal.
V. Pricing & Terms
If you are interested in having me create the video tutorials mentioned in Section IV. “Blockchain Tutorial” Deliverables for your crypto project the cost will be as follows:
I respectfully request $1,500 worth of PIVX for me to complete the section IV. “Blockchain Tutorial” Deliverables.
The grand total cost of section IV. “Blockchain Tutorial” Deliverables = $1,550. (Includes Proposal Submission Fee)
The estimated completion time for this entire proposal: 10 Hours x 4 Videos = 40 Hours x $37.5 USD/hour = $1,500 USD for Content Creation. This proposed schedule is to do this work in under 1 month allowing me to create 1 tutorial per week.
Payment will be paid in PIVX (PIVX) by a PIVX Representative to me and will be processed after all 3 tutorials are accepted by the PIVX community. I will email a PIVX Representative an invoice with the details.
I will include 1 revision per video.
The tutorials will be hosted on the PIVX YouTube channel or any other official platform and not hosted anywhere else.
I will get all my basic questions answered on PIVX support channels.
I will state in the videos that I’m being sponsored by the PIVX Community anywhere that is deemed appropriate.
PIVX will own the copyrights to the content created in this SOW and the PIVX Project has the right to use the content without asking me for permission.
Videos will follow the PIVX design guidelines.
Videos will be reviewed for accuracy by representatives of the PIVX community before being released to the public.
I am submitting this first draft of my proposed Statement Of Work (SOW) to invite feedback and commentary from the PIVX community. The following are questions are for PIVX to consider and are not part of the SOW. Statement Of Work (SOW) FAQ: 1. What is Denni Lovejoy’s big picture approach to help educate and promote PIVX to the public? This entire SOW is based on the premise that PIVX is sponsoring me to do a series of educational/ tutorial style videos of the cryptocurrency governance coin sector. 2. Why are you taking a tutorial-based style approach to the videos? The reason for this approach is to help viewers AVOID any mistakes they may make while going through ANY of the processes associated with using PIVX software. 3. Will you follow the PIVX design guidelines and have consistent screen-design intro/ outros? Yes, I plan to use consistent screen-design and leverage anything additional the PIVX design and support team can offer me including intro, outros, disclaimers, ideas, etc. I will be following the guidelines found on https://github.com/PIVX-Project/Official-PIVX-Graphics. 4. Do you plan to publish the videos on the Youtube channel of your company or will they go into the official PIVX Youtube channel? No, I do not plan to publish the videos on our 'Cryptocurrency Market' YouTube channel which has over 26,000 subscribers and over 700 videos. PIVX will have all the rights to the videos and will not be hosted elsewhere. 5. What is your target reach expectations and how do you want to keep the videos up-to-date if something changes in the GUI/software? I do not plan on doing any advertising or marketing for the tutorials and will let the PIVX PR marketing team strategize that. I can speak with the PR team as needed, but my proposal is to create video content only suggested by the community. I will give 1 revision per video if any of the videos need updating. 6. Did the other cryptocurrency projects you made video tutorials for also pay for their production? No. My approach has been to create 66 blockchain tutorials for free first, to then leverage this work portfolio as my Proof-Of-Skill so that I can approach projects like PIVX with my proposal. 7. After watching your videos on youtube the production does not feel in step with our current educational videos:https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaMrpvQ0yJ_xFLGwNoDzfT6Wr0XHpyr1R I can adapt to the current style of educational videos listed on the PIVX Class channel. The main differences I can adjust to are: a) include background music during the intro and outro b) use themed transitions and text pop ups. If this is what the community prefers, let me know. However, I can add one element to the tutorials for consideration. I can record my face while guiding viewers through the tutorial to offer a more human feel as if I'm holding your hand or you're looking over my shoulders in every step of the process. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions about my proposal.

Zcoin, also referred to as XZC or Zerocoin, is an open source decentralized cryptocurrency that provides privacy and anonymity for its users when making transactions. To achieve its privacy and anonymity, Zcoin uses zero-knowledge proofs via the Zerocoin protocol, which is at this moment in time one of the most cited cryptography papers. According to Wikipedia, in cryptography, a zero-knowledge proof or zero-knowledge protocol is a method in which one party proves to another party (the verifier) that a given statement is actually true. In other words, in a transaction with Bitcoin or Ethereum or something similar, your transaction history is always linked to your coins by default, leaving you vulnerable. All it takes is one link to your personal information or IP to find out the origin of the coins. However, when you trade with Zcoin’s Zercoin feature, your transaction history is not linked to the actual coins. Only the receiver and sender know that the funds have actually been exchanged.
How Does Zcoin Work?
Zcoin works on the Zerocoin protocol by enforcing Zero-knowledge proofs. Here are the components of Zcoin to explain how it works. Mint: When sending a private transaction with Zcoin, all you need to do is select the number of coins you want to mint. Post that your normal Zcoin balance would reduce automatically and you will be credited with new coins and no transaction history. In essence, your old coins are burned cryptographically, which prevents anyone else from using them again and being directed to your transaction history. You get credited with new coins with no history, while the total supply is maintained. For now, you can only mint in denominations of 1, 10, 25, 50 and 100. If you choose ‘100’ coins to be minted, for instance, you will instantly be credited with 100 new Zcoins with no history attached to them.
Spend: When you want to make a private transaction, you will be required to use these ‘100’ newly minted coins. From this pool of funds, you can now send any amount in any denomination to anyone anonymously because no history is attached to it.
Repeat: You can ‘mint’ and ‘send’ Zcoins any number of times at anytime with your privacy intact.
Zcoin seeks to improve things that Bitcoin hasn’t been able to so far, some of which include fungibility, privacy and miner’s centralization. Users of Zcoin can enjoy full fungibility and privacy along with demolishing miner’s centralization by implementing a better proof of work algorithm called MTP. Total Zcoin supply Only 21 million units of Zcoin will ever be produced. Currently, there are about 3.4 million units in circulation, with the rest yet to be mined. But the total supply has increased by 388450 XZC units after a Zcoin code bug, which the team refused to roll back due to economic reasons, which is why the total supply stands at approximately 21.4 million. Every 10 minutes, a Zcoin block is mined and 50 coins are generated, making 72,000 Zcoins per day. Market cap of Zcoin According to CoinMarketCap, the total circulating supply of Zcoin is 5,757,841 XZC and the current unit price is $9.6. That makes the market cap approximately $55 million*.* https://preview.redd.it/qw2igvupoxm31.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=cfaa195d5d75ba8f20e5894d0351b2eabf76825a
How To Buy Zcoin Cryptocurrency
If you are looking to get some Zcoin, here is a list of resources where it can be bought from.
Atomars – Supported pairs are XZC/BTC, XZC/ETH, XZC/USDT
Binance - Supported pairs are XZC/BTC, XZC/ETH, XZC/BNB
Note: At the moment, buying XZC in fiat currencies such as USD, EUR, or GBP is quite difficult. https://preview.redd.it/rrwao97woxm31.png?width=1460&format=png&auto=webp&s=442bf152f86a63300c5c4a029bb07369a69e6f70 Zcash: Zcash is a decentralized and open-source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that provides strong privacy protections. It was created as a fork of Bitcoin and, like bitcoin, it also has a hard limit of 21 million coins. Unlike bitcoin, however, Zcash offers total privacy for its users maintaining the absolute anonymity behind each transaction along with the parties and the amounts involved in it. PIVX: PIVX, which stands for Private Instant Verified Transaction, is an open-source, decentralized form of digital online money that uses blockchain technology. This makes it easy to transfer all around the world in an instant with low transaction fees with market leading security & privacy. PIVX focuses on privacy, security, anonymity, and instant transactions. Monero: Monero is a fast, private, secure and untraceable digital currency system that uses a special kind of cryptography to keep all its transactions 100% unlinkable and untraceable. With Monero, you are your own bank. You can spend safely, knowing that others cannot see your balances or track your activity. Some Zcoin misconceptions There are some misconceptions regarding Zcoin:
Some believe that, since Zcoin has a trusted setup that allows indefinite minting of coins, it is not safe. This is untrue. Of course, to start with they had to use a trusted setup because they have an auditable total coin supply that prevents any form of cheating. This downside however, is being taken care of by removing this trusted setup in the near future and when that happens, Zcoin will be one of the serious coins to count on for privacy.
Zcoin has been considered as Zcash’s fork but that is also not true because Zcash is based on the Zerocash protocol whereas Zcoin was started from scratch by applying Zerocoin tech.
Now that some of the Zcoin’s misconceptions have been cleared, here’s a look into its future.
Zcoin’s Future & Roadmap
Zcoin’s future is quite promising and worth watching based on these interesting milestones on their roadmap:
Zcoin is the first coin to implement MTP proof of work, which makes it possible for general masses to mine Zcoin with GPUs and CPUs. MTP doesn’t allow costly ASIC-like miners to mine XZC coins.
Zcoin is also implementing Znodes to make their cryptocurrency more decentralized and anonymous. These Znodes will be like masternodes and facilitate anonymous transactions as making an anonymous transaction single-handedly is quite computational.
Znodes will be incentivized by reducing some portion of the founder’s reward. Also, the surplus funds that get generated from the founder’s reward reduction would be used for hiring new developers and increased marketing efforts.
Another agenda on their roadmap is to bring inbuilt Tor or some IP obfuscation mechanism that will make it completely anonymous.
Apart from these, some innovative and exciting things like sigma protocol, decentralized anonymous voting and Zcoin Labs are on their roadmap, making this project worth checking out.
Last but not least, its recent price is a good indicator of its healthy market sentiment and shows that there are people who understand this project’s worth. Just to put things into perspective – a unit of Zcoin was priced $2 in March 2017 and now it is $37*.*
Zcoin Team & Progress
Zerocoin is a cryptocurrency proposed by professor Matthew D. Green, a professor of Johns Hopkins University, and graduate students Ian Miers and Christina Garman. It was proposed as an extension to the Bitcoin protocol that would add true cryptographic anonymity to Bitcoin transactions. Zerocoin was first implemented into a fully functional cryptocurrency and released to the public by Poramin Insom, the lead developer, as Zcoin in September 2016. Some of the notable dev members of the team are listed below. Poramin Insom Founder and Core Developer Poramin Insom created what was the world's 4th most valuable cryptocurrency in February 2014. He is also the world's first person to implement stealth addresses in QT-Wallets, improving cryptocurrency anonymity. He earned a master’s degree in Information Security from Johns Hopkins University, where he wrote a paper on a proposed practical implementation of the Zerocoin protocol. Alexander N. Developer Alexander N. aka Aizensou is a full-stack developer who has experience in many programming languages (C++, C#, Python, Perl, Java etc.) and has been involved in the cryptocurrency space since 2013. He has a broad development portfolio from low level APIs in Python and C++ to Android native applications in Java. In addition to his involvement in cryptocurrencies, Alexander was doing his P.h.D. in machine learning at a German university from 2012 to 2016. Saran Siriphantnon Developer Saran Siriphantnon is the CTO of Satang.co/Satoshift, a fintech company focusing on creating an open financial system for Southeast Asia. He served as President of the Computer System Administrator Group at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. Tadhg Riordan Solidity Developer Tadhg Riordan is a 24 year old Software Developer from Wexford, Ireland. He recently completed his MSc from Trinity College Dublin, where he worked with Blockchain privacy mechanisms, focusing particularly on Zero-Knowledge Proofs and the Ethereum platform. He is a strong advocate for the adoption of cryptocurrency and for complete financial privacy. Apart from these, their team comprises of other developers, community managers, support personnel and advisors who maintain the required balance.

Unique/Key Features Against Its Competitors:
Anonymous transactions. The project establishes a notably higher level of anonymity and seeks to bypass current analysis techniques which governments use to reveal the identity of users.
Not subject to transaction graph analysis. Zcoin has an anonymity set that encompasses all minted coins in a particular RSA accumulator that can scale to many thousands.
Innovative process. Tokens are burned cryptographically and replaced with new coins without a transaction history. This actively prevents anyone else from using the tokens again and stops the public from being directed to a user's transaction history.
Transparency focused. Zcoin's main advantage is its auditable money supply.
Hi All, Maybe someone can help me out. I have a Trezor. Now, I have my private seed safe, which I like. However: My privacy is not safe. Because when I use the Trezor Wallet, my local browser is connecting the (bitcore) servers of Trezor. So my public key's are exploted. So I am not using my own trustable Bitcoin full node. I tried to install my own Bitcore server, but I can not get that worked. I tried to run Etherum Personal Server (EPS) to connect Etherum to. In Etherum I can use my Trezor. That works. But i do not like this, because it is a difficult setup. Also EPS is in beta. I have three questions:
Is it true that when I use the Trezor Wallet, Trezor will know my transaction history and public addresses I am watching?
Is there another way I can solve this?
Ehm.... am I the only one having this problem? Are my expectations to high? I expect, when I buy a product like Trezor, it will be totally safe, using the strengths of Bitcoin and so it is possible with this product to use my own full node. Is it strange when I say this is not a mature part of bitcoin (having the private key in a hardware wallet and using your own bitcoin full node)
It looks like I better can use the official bitcoin wallet (bitcoin-qt), because that one I can trust, and throw away my Trezor. I understood bitcoin-core it is a HD wallet already. Thanks
There is a huge surge in devices attached to the internet, known as the Internet of Things, and it is estimated that over 80 Billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2025, from industrial machines to devices in our home. The constant hacking and cyber attacks have increased not only the demand but the necessity of secure solutions. Our privacy and digital footprint are at risk. [b]Some examples where encryption plays a role: [b]Secure messaging - To make messages truly secure we need a process whereby a cryptography can be applied to encrypt transaction. [b]Secure calling - Secure calling is a process whereby the caller and the recipient of the call are identified and linked via a blockchain enabled cryptocurrency transfer, again creating public and private encryption keys making the call truly private. [b]Secure media storage - To safely and securely store media a process is required where 1.) Access to the media is encrypted via public and private keys of the person wanting to store the media. 2.) The media itself needs to be encrypted with a set of encryption keys and 3.) Media storage costs need to be paid via cryptocurrency [b]Secure browsing - To browse the internet securely we need to create a process of verification whereby nodes on the blockchain can verify websites as “safe”. Furthermore, the entire process needs to be encrypted as well. [b]Verification - This is one of the most important uses of a blockchain, we can verify websites as in the example above but also various other things such as identity, title and ownership, date stamps and source of products as with the verification of the source of agricultural or other products. These are just a few examples. All of this data needs to be encrypted as well. [b]“Smart home” security - Wi-Fi is often used for remote monitoring and control. Home devices, when remotely monitored and controlled via the Internet, are an important constituent of the Internet of Things - all needing encryption, otherwise, hackers paradise. [b]EOT in the future - The examples we mentioned above are only “scratching the surface” of where these technologies are applicable and who knows what will be invented in future. Google, Apple and Uber are all testing cars that drive themselves. A major issue with this technology is again the security aspect and the need to protect against hacking and who want’s to get into a spaceship to Mars that might be hacked or hijacked by ransomware? So the future for the [b]“Encryption of Things” – EOT, looks very interesting indeed and the role of crypto currencies in this will be major.

I've been doing a bit of research with the technology behind this coin. It looks like ALOT of research has gone into this tech, since about 2004 and shortly after a patent for this P2P system was quickly issued. Bitvault (https://swissbankinyourpocket.com/product/bitvault/) who are using the worlds first blockchain phone as a secure communication device and ultimately taking [font=Verdana][b]encryption[/b][/font] to the Internet Of Things (IoT) keeping our personal and business data secure. All this is done using [b]EOT coin [/b](Encryption of Things). In todays world insecure devices are rampant. Here are a couple of links about the CIA being able to use insecure devices to 'cause accidents' http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/cyber-life/sd-me-wikileaks-cia-20170307-story.html and https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/03/08/what-we-know-about-car-hacking-the-cia-and-those-wikileaks-claims/ It's scary to think a legal entity could posses such power over life. Just the mere fact alone the governing authority can request phone records (e.g. txt msgs, voice msgs or eavesdropping) proves most if not all telecommunication companies do not encrypt, otherwise whats the point on requesting the information!? (legal or not). Commercially sensitive information needs to be protected and most importantly in my opinion our [font=Verdana][b]rights[/b][/font] and the privacy of all citizens of the human race need to be protected. From my understanding BitVault is a platform for reference data. This would be data that is stored for compliance reasons such as e-mails, invoicing systems and check imaging (e.g. high quality imaging for x-rays, MRI scans etc) and a prototype was developed in 2004. This would means massive amount of data storage is required with fail-safe systems so a authorised user could access this information very very quickly. Three goals were needed to be achieved: Low cost, high reliability/availability and simplicity. This is the birth of Bitvault via EOT. Bitvault ultimately stores immutable objects with each new version being updated and identified with a 160-bit key. System stability is very important and must be immune to failure sequences. Parallel repair via indexing is one of the many strengths Bitvault has been able to demonstrate. BitVault is a back-end system that uses [u][b]Applications[/b][/u] to catalog object ID's. Using a catalog utility and indexing within an application prevented scalability bottlenecking under heavy loads. Fast forward 3 years to 2007 a very important decision was to [u][b]decentralise[/b][/u] BitVaults system. This in my opinion is one of the fundamental principles of cryptocurrency - [u][b]No one entity or person has any control of the data stored and only the authorised user can access this info[/b][/u]. Ultimate Security and thus personal safety (see above articles CIA hacks). BitVault using applications have been able to use provable communication and data storage with ease of retrieval with vital security measures. BitVault is not alone in researching solutions for security for the IoT, such as Venti and the like are making progress, however, BitVault is 'head and shoulders' above the few competitors and are already offering practical working solutions on the market with huge scalability that is cost effective. Well Done BitVault, well done EOT your secret is out and let the world embrace. author=Story777 link=topic=2091616.msg21462424#msg21462424 date=1504428317] I have had a response in Slack and it has satisfied my questions. Thank-you. For everyone information here it is: The currency was created with 200 Million EOT total supply on 7 July 2017 [ we showed it to the community a London Fintech week with the demonstration of the BitVault - fintechweek.com ] 100 Million was pre-mined and another 100 Million are currently being mined, 1 block every 90 seconds @ 100 coins per block. So the pre-mined coins were listed on waves as a token so that it can create a market for the coins while we are working to get listed on other exchanges. The 100 Million coins listed were distributed in several ways. Firstly, this was not an ICO because our business is already funded via private capital. We wanted to get the currency distributed a widely as possible. So most of the initial coins were given away to a number of interested parties. We distributed this to our whole development team, business partners, employees as well as to the waves and other communities. So we did not sell all these coins for the current price, most of it was given away for free to people that have an interest in our products and business. The price now is formed by whoever owns these coins. The tokens on the exchange is really a representation of the currency and as such has value because it can be interchanged, just like Bitcoin and Ethereum are on the waves exchange. This whole process is explained on page 4 of the waves whitepaper, I think they call it an asset-to-asset exchange which makes it possible to list any asset that exist on waves. Unfortunately waves only has gateways currently for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Waves, Euro and USD, so we have to develop our own gateway, which will be available on Nov 1. So to clarify 100,000,000 tokens costing $190M were not sold. It is a combination of airdrops, private sales and sales on the exchange. Some EOT coins are needed because: "A lot of EOT will be distributed through our devices. For example our encrypted routers are pre-loaded with EOT, so we need that stock and it will be distributed that way". And with the response to tokens on the Waves Exchange "This is how Bitcoin works on waves: - They created 21 Million BTC Tokens.. When you deposit Bitcoin into waves account, you receive an equal amount of tokens which you can either trade or even sent via the waves blockchain to another user.. Once you withdraw your tokens are exchanged for BTC and you receive it back into your BTC wallet.. Exactly the same for USD or EUR - You don't send Euro's to another client on waves if you transfer - you send a token that represents EUR -- This works exactly the w0083". These are the answers I was looking for and make a lot of sense now. This is indeed an exciting project. :) It's time to trade.... Now I have one question left.... Is there anyone using NiceHash to mine this coin?? I keep being disconnected because of the difficulty being too low. Can any one help? [quote author=Shews link=topic=2091616.msg22876983#msg22876983 date=1507755312] EOT (coin) is now tradable on the CryptoBridge Decentralised Exchange, you can sign up below. Please note this is for the EOT COIN ONLY, do not send tokens to this dex. This is a secure means to trade with the backend being on a blockchain. It is still in beta stage but has been working flawlessly so far. If you'd like more info I will post their website link is below. https://wallet.crypto-bridge.org/?r=388691 You can sign up with a local wallet mode, meaning you are the only one with access to your keys, this is most secure. There is also the option to sign up with and account if you require access to you funds on the go. More info: https://crypto-bridge.org/
Transcript of Developer Meeting in Discord - March 29, 2019
Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019 Is this unlocked? oh cool. yes it is Guess we need an admin to unlock it. Some of our devs cant type in here yet. @shiggidy @traysi ★★★★★ Can yall unlock this channel? traysi ★★★★★03/29/2019 Should be open now bhorn03/29/2019 open! GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019 heya! SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019 Woot theking03/29/2019 Glad to be here. traysi ★★★★★03/29/2019 @Jeroz can you type now? Jeroz03/29/2019 Works now ty Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019 Great. Didn't really have an agenda for this meeting I'm told. Can open it up? Anyone have anything to start? Bianca_NL03/29/2019 YaY GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019 testnet voting on messaging bip? Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019 I like it. @GhostDogsGhost You might be the main "answerer of questions" for this. Not sure where @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs is. GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019 anyone know if it's passed? if and when it'd be great to get some usage Vincent03/29/2019 all good @traysi ★★★★★ Jeroz03/29/2019 Messaging is active on testnet now. The vote passed. traysi ★★★★★03/29/2019 I'll try to clean up the permissions for this channel to make it simpler for future meetings. Jeroz03/29/2019 There is no GUI yet to test it. GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019 sweet -- yeah just rpc for now [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 here Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019 yay [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 So, for messaging. There is not GUI, we really want to test the protocol which you can use fully through the rpc console. We understand that this limits the number of users that will want to do testing but we wanted to get it out there asap to find bugs Jeroz03/29/2019 Is there list of commands / little guide on how to get started with them in the console? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 Also, we wanted to let everyone know that we are going to try and get messaging protocol and restricted assets on mainnet at the same time. This means that the release for messaging might be delayed by a couple weeks. The devs are working really hard to make this happen and hope that the community is willing to wait a little longer for mainnet messaging. There are commands like sendmessage listmessages and subscribe rpc calls yes Jeroz03/29/2019 That would mean 1 hardfork instead of 2 right? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 Exactly @Jeroz [Master] Roshii03/29/2019 Hello! [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 Also, the Qt for messaging wont be released until after the hardfork, but the Qt for messaging and restricted assets would be in the same release. S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 Hello! Thanks for holding this meeting. Jeroz03/29/2019 Will dividends also be included to that? @WhaleStreet (BW) (not sure if you are here) [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 Dividends can be released at anytime it is completed as it doesn't require a hardfork Jeroz03/29/2019 I meant the GUI update S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 For restricted assets, will owners of !uniquename have a grace period to claim $uniquename ? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 I am not sure on the GUI for dividends. We are still figuring out if we are going to allow for a grave period or not. I think we are leading to the answer of Yes there will be a grace period. but we aren't sure yet SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019 I've been studying and out of the loop of the RVN scene for a long time - is there any chance of someone updating me on what y'all talking about? Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019 We have also been going through and cleaning up issues in GitHub. Tried to clean up tags in there as well. We will probably start going though those on a weekly ->monthly basis to stay ahead of things. Vincent03/29/2019 community seens to agree !ASSET has exclsuvie on $ASSET GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019 Silva -- that's open for discussion -- I think the general sentiment is that there should be some preference given to current asset owners [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @SamzOnline [w1ne] We are talking about the roadmap and how the development of the new features are coming along. SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019 Lovely many thanks Vincent03/29/2019 what is the justification on only a grace period? S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 Is it possible to reissue a !ownership as a $ownership? Jeroz03/29/2019 @SamzOnline [w1ne] https://medium.com/@tronblack/ravencoin-tags-and-restricted-assets-84fe3070a226 https://medium.com/@tronblack/ravencoin-kaaawww-2f72077aece [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent I don't think is has exclusive rights. More like a first right of refusal for a couple months Synicide03/29/2019 agree there should be some kind of grace period, or users that originally registered those assets will feel shafted Vincent03/29/2019 but what is that justification? if you are building Applein ur garage, you may need a few yrs to go public S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 Issue being assets will cease to be unique with two different types about [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 True. We aren't sure on what approach will be taken yet Synicide03/29/2019 should regular and restricted assets share the same 'uniqueness of naming'? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 Please the community let us know what you think is fair. This topic will 100% need to be discussed a lot Vincent03/29/2019 when it was announced, there was a lot of discussion; most seemed to agree SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019 @Jeroz Many thanks [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 If the consensus is that we shouldn't allow for ASSET! and $ASSET to be issued by different people then we will need to make sure that is the right approach. The code hasn't been written yet. GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019 Some of this will depend on what we end up pricing the $ASSETS at (burn for issuance).. Vincent03/29/2019 prcing shouldnt matter imo S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 We need to determine how important unique asset names are, for varying types. Vincent03/29/2019 should be the owner of the asset name [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org Exactly push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 hey all, sorry im late :thumbsup: [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 Howdy Synicide03/29/2019 If someone registers !company123, and starts building a platform for themselves, seems they should be given an option to convert to $company123, and shouldnt have to worry about another party creating $company123 [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 They will be given that option Vincent03/29/2019 indefinately [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 the question is, is that option going to exist for forever, or maybe only 4 months Vincent03/29/2019 then the worry still exists Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 I definitely vote for ! And $ to only be issued by the same people Synicide03/29/2019 lets say they choose not to, can someone else create $company123? Or is that unqiue name shared? S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 I believe, ideally, a reissuance option would be available at anytime from !ownership [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Synicide That decision hasn't been made yet theking03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs I do agree that releasing both messaging and restricted assets at same time makes sense so there is only one hard fork. What is the current thinking on tentative timeline before they would both be on main net? push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 im excited about this memo indication, its useful because it means a buyer of an asset sending rvn can indicate the 'return address' without the 'seller of the asset receiving ravencoin' having to transverse the full vin/vout chain to obtain the source address to dispatch asset to. Is there a timeline for this feature or any documentation on it @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs ? Synicide03/29/2019 my 2 cents, they should be a shared pool of unique names. The door is opened for scammers galore if it isnt. [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @theking A couple months atleast. To make sure it is tested on testnet for long enough theking03/29/2019 That makes perfect sense! [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @push | ravenland.org It will be on mainnet as soon as it and restricted assets are tested. Is the goal push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 excellent, i look forward to it Chill03/29/2019 Thank you for taking the time to bring up the ! and $ ownership issue. It's of extreme importance imo push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 its gods work your doing there bitnaive03/29/2019 yeah it seems like any modifiers to the original !NAME should belong to !NAME DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019 I would like to voice concern over the idea of the "grace period".... The idea of a UNIQUE asset name is key to our success. Many of us jumped on names we wanted. This doesn't feel right to need to have yet another name floating around if it's not controlled by the !OWNERSHIP token S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 @Chill NP :p Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 Yes please on only 1 hard fork Chill03/29/2019 unique is unique. I have 510 of them! Synicide03/29/2019 @DirkDiggler (RVN ded) grace peroid wont matter if the naming pool is shared for uniqueness [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 So, If I own GOOGLE!, and I don't want $GOOGLE, no one should be allowed to own it? DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019 exactly S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs Ideally, yes bhorn03/29/2019 that feels right to me Jeroz03/29/2019 yes SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019 Interesting DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019 yes Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs I'm good w that Synicide03/29/2019 that makes the most sense to me. As said, opens the door to scammers if not Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 Would add extra value to the ownership token as well S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 If more power is given to !ownership(changing type), more value is added to said asset, by way of design and ability Vincent03/29/2019 and if you want to covert your assets to restricted yrs from now you will have a logistic nightmare if you have a bunch of owners [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 I feel like, if we give people the option to register the restricted asset $ and they don't want it, that it is only fair that it is up for grabs bitnaive03/29/2019 maybe no one else should be allowed to issue it but it can be transferred Vincent03/29/2019 why? Chill03/29/2019 I really don't think that's fair, to be honest S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs Unique names are lost, in that case. And in that way, !ownership loses value by not having the ability to change, if need be Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 Yeah I'd rather see the one name issued only forever bitnaive03/29/2019 that way, if some one wants it. the can contact the owner for it. [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 I think restricted assets have a different use case than regular assets, and they can be frozen. Vincent03/29/2019 i can buy ravenland and revent push from moving forward with is project (after grace) DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019 seems like from a "code" perspective... the idea of 2 different (but similar names) would be a nightmare as well Jeroz03/29/2019 Ideally give reissuable the extra option of making it restricted in my mind. I have mixed feelings about tokens traveling around that have the same asset name but are a different type. Vincent03/29/2019 all his logos would have to change to his new name S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 They not have them remain one in the same? With the ability to change to restricted, should they have to. Though reissuance? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent That is why push would have plenty of time to pick up the ravenland restricted asset if he wanted it Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 One of our selling points over ETH is that ETH can issue a bunch of the same named assets as long as the contract address is different Vincent03/29/2019 bbut who says what is enough time i may need yrs bhorn03/29/2019 the extra cost could be onerous as well Chill03/29/2019 when the asset layer was launched, it was billed as being unique names. Be careful in changing this, please. [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 True, that amount of time isn't determined yet, if this is the route that is taken bhorn03/29/2019 some have many many many assets Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 RVN, u issue that name once, it can never be duplicated DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019 where as having just another sub asset type ($RESTRICTED) falls under the same hierarchy already defined bhorn03/29/2019 and the RVN is not as cheaply replaced [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Chill Not changing that, just talking about the next asset usecase and how it could be coded is all Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 What kind of burn costs are we thinking w issuing restricted assets? Synicide03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs what if push decides not to, then someone else registers it for malicious intent with the same name? Surely the person who built their company on chain doesnt want another token of their company name out there Vincent03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs you seem to be the only one fighting for the garce period [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor Not sure yet, going to be more than regular issuanace is the thought. Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 Agreed S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 @Vincent Simply bringing it into conversation, no harm [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent Not fighting, just keeping an open mind. I just code it, I am not the one making the decision. push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 hey this is a bit of a random question but i get a lot of subassets send to me, what about wildcard sending via the wallet? like if i wanted to send RAVENLAND/* to an address Vincent03/29/2019 true but just showing what the concesous is [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @push | ravenland.org Create a request in the issues on github for extra functionality push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 :thumbsup: will do mate Synicide03/29/2019 seems if ! and $ arent shared unique, then companies will have to register both just to protect themselves Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 How about a unique asset w re-issuable IPFS? S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 We should be giving more power to !ownership by allowing it the ability to change to $ - Not giving less power to !ownership by duplicating unique names. Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 GUNCERT provided a valid use case IMO for unique w re-issuable IPFS [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent Sure I get that. Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019 Agrees If this is a possibility, to give the restricted assets to those who own the normal ones, it ought to be done [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor Looking in on how to do that. The request is on github just don't have the time to implement it yet. restricted assets, will have to be issued. and the corresponding amount of rvn will be burned for them push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 it'd be nice to see a ravencoin network swarm, us and mango farms are doing something with that so if anyone else wants to get involved, i think its a worthwhile thing to build the power of the ravencoin ipfs hash network to keep them hashes alive Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019 Yikes Ah well push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 i wrote a programmatic script to scrape all the ipfs files, so i can probably runa simple enough shellscript to ipfs add pin everything from chain Vincent03/29/2019 plus ravenland sent me a bunch of tokens...they will be worthless now!!! :sunglasses: push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 :joy: vincent one day tho eh Chill03/29/2019 my 250,000 RVN that were spent on RVN assets are feeling pretty weak at the moment [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent haha ravenland assets are still assets. They just don't have the ability to freeze then and stop you from trading them DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019 you got to have one ring to rule them all... the Unique Ownership Token does that SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019 @Chill That puts my 80 to shame! [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Chill Like I said, no decision has been made yet. Vincent03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs just playing with that one [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent Yeah, I understand S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 Changing gears alittle, Has any further thought been put into privacy? push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 a tor network with proxychains could be effectively used to privatize a node Jeroz03/29/2019 Seems that we need to continue discussions about the asset naming and make a write up about the proposals. I have a different question: About metadata and transactions. Tron mentioned that it will be possible to attach metadata to every transaction. It was unclear to me whether he meant every messaging transaction or every regular RVN/Asset transaction. push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 ive been looking into this a little bit Synicide03/29/2019 @S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org been wondering that too, and if restricted assets for KYC/AML NEED to be trackable [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org Privacy isn't the main thing ravencoin wants right now. We need to be able to send and trade assets with visibility of amounts and the asset names. Once the main core components are finished, we can start thinking about integration privacy. push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 as i understand it tor could as a protocol be built into ravencoin itself and distroed as a private tor based connector or hardened in such a way not to leak dns or requests that are not 'tor' proxied .. but you could do this already with some modifications to most linux systems (without the need for a ravencoin release) S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 Understood [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Jeroz With messaging, all asset transactions can contain a metadata field yes. Jeroz03/29/2019 RVN too? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 Not RVN at this time, as that already exists with the OP_RETURN functionality of bitcoin Jeroz03/29/2019 Yeah I was about to say S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 I dream of one day Ravencoin giving users the ability to protect themselves from state level actors looking to oversee transactions on chain. [Master] Roshii03/29/2019 What's the subject? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org That would be amazing, however the dividends and voting require a public ledger in order to send Synicide03/29/2019 @[Master] Roshii large one is if regular and restricted assets should share unique names, and/or if a grace peroid should be allowed for original owners to register restricted assets [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 So we would need to figure out a way to have that info public and keep privacy S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 Agree'd Synicide03/29/2019 that was my worry, that it HAS to be public for a lot of uses. Privacy would have to be optional [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 ravencoin was built and is being built to support asset trading. Privacy is important but isn't currently the focus of the dev team. Synicide03/29/2019 sounds good, focus on our roadmap and can research it more in the future S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019 Privacy is one of the very lasts subjects brought up in the whitepaper, after all :wink: Vincent03/29/2019 to bring up an old topic; assets that haven't been reissued, there was talk about lowering the decimal places to reissue; i know not important but if it needed to be in a hard fork; should it be looked at the add to th next? [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent I have found a way to do this, however it requires the reissuer to own all assets Synicide03/29/2019 how would you determine the correct values if lowering decimals? rounding? Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs Yes! Vincent03/29/2019 correct nice Synicide03/29/2019 if they all own, I guess its a non-issue [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 We aren't currently working on that, but I will try and get it into the hard fork release Vincent03/29/2019 it would be a 1 time option, correct? Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 In that event too, ability to reduce total supply as well if u still own every asset created would also be an excellent Option to have When 350?

Chill03/29/2019 That seems to be the talk of the day Zaab03/29/2019 Its just honesty Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019 We know a 51% attack is cheap [Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019 @Vincent Depends on if it meets requirements. Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019 But reorg depth protection is good Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019 Yes Ravencoin currently doesn't have the network security that Bitcoin does, and water is wet push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 more full nodes is the answer to a stronger consensus and therefore a more securer network Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019 Hmmm checks out push | ravenland.org03/29/2019 :ThinkBlack: Vincent03/29/2019 right i guess my question is one time at most? Synicide03/29/2019 It feels like more than just honesty. The last 4 post in a row from the Ravencoin twitter have some type of FUD based around it. Its all you see on the first page when looking at it.

Bitcoin private key is a secret number that allows cryptocurrency to be spent. Every Bitcoin address has a matching private key, which is saved in the wallet file of the person who owns the balance.
