Gridcoin 5.0.0.0-Mandatory "Fern" Release

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

Highlights

Protocol

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

GUI

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

Blockchain

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

Summary Changelog

Accrual

Changed

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

Syscoin Platform’s Great Reddit Scaling Bake-off Proposal

Syscoin Platform’s Great Reddit Scaling Bake-off Proposal

https://preview.redd.it/rqt2dldyg8e51.jpg?width=1044&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=777ae9d4fbbb54c3540682b72700fc4ba3de0a44
We are excited to participate and present Syscoin Platform's ideal characteristics and capabilities towards a well-rounded Reddit Community Points solution!
Our scaling solution for Reddit Community Points involves 2-way peg interoperability with Ethereum. This will provide a scalable token layer built specifically for speed and high volumes of simple value transfers at a very low cost, while providing sovereign ownership and onchain finality.
Token transfers scale by taking advantage of a globally sorting mempool that provides for probabilistically secure assumptions of “as good as settled”. The opportunity here for token receivers is to have an app-layer interactivity on the speed/security tradeoff (99.9999% assurance within 10 seconds). We call this Z-DAG, and it achieves high-throughput across a mesh network topology presently composed of about 2,000 geographically dispersed full-nodes. Similar to Bitcoin, however, these nodes are incentivized to run full-nodes for the benefit of network security, through a bonded validator scheme. These nodes do not participate in the consensus of transactions or block validation any differently than other nodes and therefore do not degrade the security model of Bitcoin’s validate first then trust, across every node. Each token transfer settles on-chain. The protocol follows Bitcoin core policies so it has adequate code coverage and protocol hardening to be qualified as production quality software. It shares a significant portion of Bitcoin’s own hashpower through merged-mining.
This platform as a whole can serve token microtransactions, larger settlements, and store-of-value in an ideal fashion, providing probabilistic scalability whilst remaining decentralized according to Bitcoin design. It is accessible to ERC-20 via a permissionless and trust-minimized bridge that works in both directions. The bridge and token platform are currently available on the Syscoin mainnet. This has been gaining recent attention for use by loyalty point programs and stablecoins such as Binance USD.

Solutions

Syscoin Foundation identified a few paths for Reddit to leverage this infrastructure, each with trade-offs. The first provides the most cost-savings and scaling benefits at some sacrifice of token autonomy. The second offers more preservation of autonomy with a more narrow scope of cost savings than the first option, but savings even so. The third introduces more complexity than the previous two yet provides the most overall benefits. We consider the third as most viable as it enables Reddit to benefit even while retaining existing smart contract functionality. We will focus on the third option, and include the first two for good measure.
  1. Distribution, burns and user-to-user transfers of Reddit Points are entirely carried out on the Syscoin network. This full-on approach to utilizing the Syscoin network provides the most scalability and transaction cost benefits of these scenarios. The tradeoff here is distribution and subscription handling likely migrating away from smart contracts into the application layer.
  2. The Reddit Community Points ecosystem can continue to use existing smart contracts as they are used today on the Ethereum mainchain. Users migrate a portion of their tokens to Syscoin, the scaling network, to gain much lower fees, scalability, and a proven base layer, without sacrificing sovereign ownership. They would use Syscoin for user-to-user transfers. Tips redeemable in ten seconds or less, a high-throughput relay network, and onchain settlement at a block target of 60 seconds.
  3. Integration between Matic Network and Syscoin Platform - similar to Syscoin’s current integration with Ethereum - will provide Reddit Community Points with EVM scalability (including the Memberships ERC777 operator) on the Matic side, and performant simple value transfers, robust decentralized security, and sovereign store-of-value on the Syscoin side. It’s “the best of both worlds”. The trade-off is more complex interoperability.

Syscoin + Matic Integration

Matic and Blockchain Foundry Inc, the public company formed by the founders of Syscoin, recently entered a partnership for joint research and business development initiatives. This is ideal for all parties as Matic Network and Syscoin Platform provide complementary utility. Syscoin offers characteristics for sovereign ownership and security based on Bitcoin’s time-tested model, and shares a significant portion of Bitcoin’s own hashpower. Syscoin’s focus is on secure and scalable simple value transfers, trust-minimized interoperability, and opt-in regulatory compliance for tokenized assets rather than scalability for smart contract execution. On the other hand, Matic Network can provide scalable EVM for smart contract execution. Reddit Community Points can benefit from both.
Syscoin + Matic integration is actively being explored by both teams, as it is helpful to Reddit, Ethereum, and the industry as a whole.

Proving Performance & Cost Savings

Our POC focuses on 100,000 on-chain settlements of token transfers on the Syscoin Core blockchain. Transfers and burns perform equally with Syscoin. For POCs related to smart contracts (subscriptions, etc), refer to the Matic Network proposal.
On-chain settlement of 100k transactions was accomplished within roughly twelve minutes, well-exceeding Reddit’s expectation of five days. This was performed using six full-nodes operating on compute-optimized AWS c4.2xlarge instances which were geographically distributed (Virginia, London, Sao Paulo Brazil, Oregon, Singapore, Germany). A higher quantity of settlements could be reached within the same time-frame with more broadcasting nodes involved, or using hosts with more resources for faster execution of the process.
Addresses used: 100,014

It is important to note that this POC is not focused on Z-DAG. The performance of Z-DAG has been benchmarked within realistic network conditions: Whiteblock’s audit is publicly available. Network latency tests showed an average TPS around 15k with burst capacity up to 61k. Zero-latency control group exhibited ~150k TPS. Mainnet testing of the Z-DAG network is achievable and will require further coordination and additional resources.
Even further optimizations are expected in the upcoming Syscoin Core release which will implement a UTXO model for our token layer bringing further efficiency as well as open the door to additional scaling technology currently under research by our team and academic partners. At present our token layer is account-based, similar to Ethereum. Opt-in compliance structures will also be introduced soon which will offer some positive performance characteristics as well. It makes the most sense to implement these optimizations before performing another benchmark for Z-DAG, especially on the mainnet considering the resources required to stress-test this network.

Cost Savings

Total cost for these 100k transactions: $0.63 USD
See the live fee comparison for savings estimation between transactions on Ethereum and Syscoin. Below is a snapshot at time of writing:
ETH price: $318.55 ETH gas price: 55.00 Gwei ($0.37)
Syscoin price: $0.11
Snapshot of live fee comparison chart
Z-DAG provides a more efficient fee-market. A typical Z-DAG transaction costs 0.0000582 SYS. Tokens can be safely redeemed/re-spent within seconds or allowed to settle on-chain beforehand. The costs should remain about this low for microtransactions.
Syscoin will achieve further reduction of fees and even greater scalability with offchain payment channels for assets, with Z-DAG as a resilience fallback. New payment channel technology is one of the topics under research by the Syscoin development team with our academic partners at TU Delft. In line with the calculation in the Lightning Networks white paper, payment channels using assets with Syscoin Core will bring theoretical capacity for each person on Earth (7.8 billion) to have five on-chain transactions per year, per person, without requiring anyone to enter a fee market (aka “wait for a block”). This exceeds the minimum LN expectation of two transactions per person, per year; one to exist on-chain and one to settle aggregated value.

Benefits

  • Permissionless
  • No counterparties involved
  • No trading mechanisms involved
  • No third-party liquidity providers required
  • Cross-chain Fractional Supply - 2-way peg - Token supply maintained globally
  • ERC-20s gain vastly improved transactionality with the Syscoin Token Platform, along with the security of bitcoin-core-compliant PoW.
  • SPTs gain access to all the tooling, applications and capabilities of Ethereum for ERC-20, including smart contracts.

Developer & User Diligence

Trade-off

The Syscoin Ethereum Bridge is secured by Agent nodes participating in a decentralized and incentivized model that involves roles of Superblock challengers and submitters. This model is open to participation. The benefits here are trust-minimization, permissionless-ness, and potentially less legal/regulatory red-tape than interop mechanisms that involve liquidity providers and/or trading mechanisms.
The trade-off is that due to the decentralized nature there are cross-chain settlement times of one hour to cross from Ethereum to Syscoin, and three hours to cross from Syscoin to Ethereum. We are exploring ways to reduce this time while maintaining decentralization via zkp. Even so, an “instant bridge” experience could be provided by means of a third-party liquidity mechanism. That option exists but is not required for bridge functionality today. Typically bridges are used with batch value, not with high frequencies of smaller values, and generally it is advantageous to keep some value on both chains for maximum availability of utility. Even so, the cross-chain settlement time is good to mention here.

Cost

Ethereum -> Syscoin: Matic or Ethereum transaction fee for bridge contract interaction, negligible Syscoin transaction fee for minting tokens
Syscoin -> Ethereum: Negligible Syscoin transaction fee for burning tokens, 0.01% transaction fee paid to Bridge Agent in the form of the ERC-20, Matic or Ethereum transaction fee for contract interaction.

Z-DAG

Zero-Confirmation Directed Acyclic Graph is an instant settlement protocol that is used as a complementary system to proof-of-work (PoW) in the confirmation of Syscoin service transactions. In essence, a Z-DAG is simply a directed acyclic graph (DAG) where validating nodes verify the sequential ordering of transactions that are received in their memory pools. Z-DAG is used by the validating nodes across the network to ensure that there is absolute consensus on the ordering of transactions and no balances are overflowed (no double-spends).

Benefits

  • Unique fee-market that is more efficient for microtransaction redemption and settlement
  • Uses decentralized means to enable tokens with value transfer scalability that is comparable or exceeds that of credit card networks
  • Provides high throughput and secure fulfillment even if blocks are full
  • Probabilistic and interactive
  • 99.9999% security assurance within 10 seconds
  • Can serve payment channels as a resilience fallback that is faster and lower-cost than falling-back directly to a blockchain
  • Each Z-DAG transaction also settles onchain through Syscoin Core at 60-second block target using SHA-256 Proof of Work consensus

Z-DAG White Paper
Useful read: An in-depth Z-DAG discussion between Syscoin Core developer Jag Sidhu and Brave Software Research Engineer Gonçalo Pestana

Trade-off

Z-DAG enables the ideal speed/security tradeoff to be determined per use-case in the application layer. It minimizes the sacrifice required to accept and redeem fast transfers/payments while providing more-than-ample security for microtransactions. This is supported on the premise that a Reddit user receiving points does need security yet generally doesn’t want nor need to wait for the same level of security as a nation-state settling an international trade debt. In any case, each Z-DAG transaction settles onchain at a block target of 60 seconds.

Syscoin Specs

Syscoin 3.0 White Paper
(4.0 white paper is pending. For improved scalability and less blockchain bloat, some features of v3 no longer exist in current v4: Specifically Marketplace Offers, Aliases, Escrow, Certificates, Pruning, Encrypted Messaging)
  • 16MB block bandwidth per minute assuming segwit witness carrying transactions, and transactions ~200 bytes on average
  • SHA256 merge mined with Bitcoin
  • UTXO asset layer, with base Syscoin layer sharing identical security policies as Bitcoin Core
  • Z-DAG on asset layer, bridge to Ethereum on asset layer
  • On-chain scaling with prospect of enabling enterprise grade reliable trustless payment processing with on/offchain hybrid solution
  • Focus only on Simple Value Transfers. MVP of blockchain consensus footprint is balances and ownership of them. Everything else can reduce data availability in exchange for scale (Ethereum 2.0 model). We leave that to other designs, we focus on transfers.
  • Future integrations of MAST/Taproot to get more complex value transfers without trading off trustlessness or decentralization.
  • Zero-knowledge Proofs are a cryptographic new frontier. We are dabbling here to generalize the concept of bridging and also verify the state of a chain efficiently. We also apply it in our Digital Identity projects at Blockchain Foundry (a publicly traded company which develops Syscoin softwares for clients). We are also looking to integrate privacy preserving payment channels for off-chain payments through zkSNARK hub & spoke design which does not suffer from the HTLC attack vectors evident on LN. Much of the issues plaguing Lightning Network can be resolved using a zkSNARK design whilst also providing the ability to do a multi-asset payment channel system. Currently we found a showstopper attack (American Call Option) on LN if we were to use multiple-assets. This would not exist in a system such as this.

Wallets

Web3 and mobile wallets are under active development by Blockchain Foundry Inc as WebAssembly applications and expected for release not long after mainnet deployment of Syscoin Core 4.2. Both of these will be multi-coin wallets that support Syscoin, SPTs, Ethereum, and ERC-20 tokens. The Web3 wallet will provide functionality similar to Metamask.
Syscoin Platform and tokens are already integrated with Blockbook. Custom hardware wallet support currently exists via ElectrumSys. First-class HW wallet integration through apps such as Ledger Live will exist after 4.2.
Current supported wallets
Syscoin Spark Desktop
Syscoin-Qt

Explorers

Mainnet: https://sys1.bcfn.ca (Blockbook)
Testnet: https://explorer-testnet.blockchainfoundry.co

Thank you for close consideration of our proposal. We look forward to feedback, and to working with the Reddit community to implement an ideal solution using Syscoin Platform!

Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

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

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

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

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

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

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.

[TUTORIAL] -- How to SAFELY Claim New RNG Coins Using Your Private Keys

[TUTORIAL] -- How to SAFELY Claim New RNG Coins Using Your Private Keys

https://preview.redd.it/u4x1o4p37zc41.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=01d1ff52c0b7fc1c9ae5bb4f161979ad1f4bb559
I’m a longtime blockchain enthusiast and developer and one of my biggest gripes about this space is how quickly every new project is widely dismissed as a “scam” or “shitcoin” by so many people before it even gets off the ground. Sure, there is a lot of uncharted territory with pirates lurking to steal your bags left and right but with a small amount of personal education you can exist safely in the world of crypto I promise! With this article I aim to help lift your knowledge a little higher while helping keep your funds a little safer!

So What Is Happening?

On Tuesday February 18, 2020 a new coin named Ring (RNG) will be minted. This coin aims to bring two unique and fresh methods of proofing to the crypto game, quite literally: Agent-Based Hive Mining (borrowed from LCC) and Proof-of-Play Mining, where literal gameplay is used to hash and reward miners! To celebrate and help spread the word, the team is giving away claims of free RNG to all holders of the following coins:
  • Litecoin Cash (LCC)
  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Dash (DASH)
  • Dogecoin (DOGE)
It's being touted as the world's first crypto "4-way fork" but I'd really call it more of a "4-way claim" since its a brand new chain and not based on the code of any of the rewarded coins. It's simply a clever method of allowing a wider range of coin holders a chance to participate in the launch of these exciting new features!

How Will This Process Work?

On the 18th of February, a balance snapshot will be taken of the four chains listed above. Anyone holding a balance with any of these coins at the time of the snapshot will be forever eligible to claim their RNG at any time. Because the only way to prove ownership of a crypto address is to supply the private keys, and pretty much EVERYONE will tell you to guard those things with your life, below I will outline exactly what to do so there is absolutely 0% risk of losing a single satoshi! This method will apply to ANY claim rewards of any coin in the future as well. Always practice #SafeForking!

How Do I Safely Claim My RNG?

STEP 1 -- BEFORE THE SNAPSHOT -- VERIFY ACCESS TO YOUR PRIVATE KEYS
All core wallets will allow you to export a private key of any address in your wallet but many third party services like exchanges and hot wallets do not allow access to them. In these cases you will need to send your funds out of the third party service and into some kind of personal wallet where you can reach the private keys yourself. Then just wait for the snapshot to happen…
To make things easier on yourself, you can optionally collect your original coins into as few addresses as possible BEFORE the snapshot. Doing so reduces the number of keys you will need to empty and import later. It’s just less work!
\** SNAPSHOT HAPPENS HERE... ****
STEP 2 -- ATER THE SNAPSHOT -- EMPTY ALL ADDRESSES YOU WISH TO CLAIM
After the snapshot is confirmed, withdraw all coins OUT of each of your origin coin addresses into brand new addresses leaving the original ones quite empty. This way when you import later there is NO risk of losing anything! Also know that after you import these private keys you should never use them again for safety’s sake! It’s kind of the whole reason you’re even reading this article in the first place.
STEP 3 -- EXPORT PRIVATE KEYS FOR ALL ADDRESS YOU WISH TO CLAIM
This is the most difficult part, are you ready? Once each claim address is confirmed to be EMPTY, you must obtain each one’s private keys. This will entirely depend on the wallet you use (QT example below) but for all core wallets there is generally an option for exporting private keys somewhere in there. Collect them all!
How to Export QT Wallet Private Keys:⛔️ — DISABLE INTERNET FOR SAFETY — ⛔️- Open the QT wallet client- Click on HELP in the menu bar- Click on DEBUG WINDOW- Click on the CONSOLE tab- Click inside the input box at the bottom(if your wallet is locked…)- Type: walletpassphrase [Password] 600(this unlocks your wallet for 10 minutes)- Type: dumpprivkey [Address]- Copy the output hash, paste it into a list somewhere.(repeat as needed, clear your clipboard history after)- Type: walletlock (if applicable)⚡ — RE-ENABLE YOUR INTERNET —
STEP 4 -- IMPORT ALL PRIVATE KEYS INTO RNG CORE WALLET
\** PLEASE VERIFY THAT EVERY CLAIM ADDRESS IS EMPTY BEFORE CONTINUING... ****
The final step is to simply import each of these private keys into the new Ring Core Wallet to claim your free RNG rewards. The wallet handles this part automatically and you will see your new RNG balance right away. You can find this option under the File > Import Private Keys menu.
Importing a private key is the only way to prove ownership of a crypto address so this is unavoidable if you want to claim new coins from it. The steps above will allow you to prove ownership of your snapshotted address balance plus use its empty key to then claim your new coins thus keeping your original coins completely protected in the brand new address with a new private key (which you should now also keep VERY private!)
By emptying the address before you import it’s private key you eliminate the risk of theft entirely. One cannot take from an already empty jar. It should also be noted to NEVER use the imported address again as an added safety precaution*!*
👏👏👏 DONE! ENJOY YOUR FREE MONEY! 👏👏👏

How Much RNG Will I Receive?

Litecoin Cash holders will receive the highest claim ratio (5000 LCC = 1 RNG) as the LCC team are the ones responsible for creating Ring and wanted to extend a heart-felt thank you to the LCC community for their years of support. All other coins will be based on a 1:1 ratio with the value of Bitcoin at the time of the fork. This of course means 1 BTC = 1 RNG. For DASH and DOGE, however, their BTC market prices will determine their reward ratios. (For example if DASH is trading at 0.015 BTC each, then each DASH coin will net you a reward of 0.015 RNG to match.) Of course you don't need whole coins to claim, partial decimals work just fine!

What Value Will RNG Have?

That, my friends, is entirely up to the markets. No one in the history of crypto has had a perfect track record of price predictions so I'm not even going to try here. I will say, though, having gotten to play with their Testnet a bit so far that I am very impressed with the new Proof-of-Play method and how they have initially implemented it. It bodes very good things for the future of their project and this coin so I personally would expect its value to hold and most likely rise steadily as more people become aware of this groundbreaking new tech and it's potential to expand outward!

Is Litecoin Cash Still Going To Exist?

Absolutely! At least, from what I can gather. LCC has it's own purposes and will continue to be developed on. Ring is not meant to be a replacement or upgrade of any kind to Litecoin Cash. It is an entirely different proofing algorithm and a different mission statement altogether. It's more so meant to help expose the amazing new technologies developed on the LCC blockchain to a wider audience beyond simply its own fan base. If anything it'll act a sister chain that can help expose more folks to LCC in the future!

Disclaimer

While I am a moderator for the Litecoin Cash Discord server, I am writing this from an independent point of view as an educated crypto enthusiast with a passion for helping others navigate these waters. Having been an initial forker and third party developer on top of LCC myself, I feel I have some valuable insight into the direction the team is taking and I wanted to offer some sound advice for the upcoming Ring fork before the FUD gets caked on too thick.
I know a lot of people get scared easily in crypto because of the rampant scamming that goes on but I've watched this team work their asses off for two years to get out from under the stain of Charlie Lee's very biased, uneducated "its a scam" tweet which was endlessly parroted throughout the Litecoin community with nothing but blind party loyalty and no due diligence. The LCC folks are kind, wonderful hard-working people with big hearts and ambition and they have actually developed a unique proofing methodology that is likely going to impress a lot of people!
So before you go jumping on the "it's just another shitcoin" bandwagon please stop and take a real hard look at both Litecoin Cash (LCC) and Ring (RNG): two viable projects with something to bring to the table! If nothing else, hey, just claim your new coins and dump them off for some free money. You literally cannot lose if you PRACTICE SAFE FORKING!!!
Good luck, cryptonauts!

Ren | All-In-One

Ren

What is Ren? Ren is an open protocol that enables the permissionless transfer of value between any blockchain. Ren's core product, RenVM, brings interoperability to decentralized finance (DeFi).
What makes RenVM unique is that it does everything in secret using zero-knowledge proofs over an sMPC based protocol that the team has pioneered. The state, inputs, and outputs of all programs that RenVM runs are kept hidden from everyone, including the Darknodes that power it.
This allows RenVM to securely manage (ECDSA) private keys on different blockchains, making it possible to shift tokens between these blockchains in a trustless, permissionless, and decentralized way (i.e interoperability).
Technically speaking RenVM is a byzantine fault-tolerant protocol (with 1/3 malicious nodes) that does ECDSA threshold key generation and signing via sMPC. RenVM is not a product or an application in and of itself but is a network (and an accompanying SDK) that allows developers to bring interoperability to their DeFi applications.
Ren was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in Singapore.

Official Resources
Darknodes
Darknodes are the physical machines that power RenVM, where every machine contributes CPU time for compute power and its disk space for storage. These are that machines that form the P2P decentralized network (not a blockchain) that cooperate to run secret multiparty computations. It is important to note that programs executing on RenVM are hidden from the Darknodes that run the virtual machine.
This guide will walk you through the installation of your Darknode. Before you begin, make sure that you have a MacOS, Windows, or Ubuntu machine available (i.e. home computer) and 100,000 REN.

Much concern: Dogecoin block chain HAS SPLIT

Hey shibes,

Much bad news. THE DOGECOIN BLOCK CHAIN HAS FORKED. This is a bad thing.

ELI5: Your client is constantly downloading blocks and processing them, which is the way that Dogecoin works. Ten days ago, the developers made a change to the Dogecoin client that raised the limit of coins in a block from 500 million to 10 billion. So now some folks are running Dogecoin clients without that change, because they are older, and some folks are running newer clients. In block 42279, a transaction that broke the rule -- containing more than 500 million DOGE -- has prevented these older clients from advancing on the correct chain and they are now working on a bad ledger.
If you are attempting to send transactions and you hit this behavior, you ARE adding transactions to the bad chain.
There is a current risk of double spending and a lot of people are working on a bad ledger, both with mining and their personal clients. STOP sending DOGE (including pool payouts) until this situation is resolved by people that know more than I do. It might appear that you are still advancing past the bad block but your client might be going down the wrong fork!
Details: My client is synced and fine, and I sent a transaction in the last few minutes, but I've heard from several friends that they are stuck on a prior block have forked off the main ledger after block 42279. Apparently, 10 days ago, there was a commit to the dogecoin client that raised the transaction limit from 500 million DOGE to 10 billion DOGE:
https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin/commit/2ee5cb3396df66c10fef34480a183d00e3bec635
In block 42279 a 500m DOGE transaction was submitted which broke the block chain on clients older than that commit. I have heard from three separate folks now that their clients are stuck on block 42279 advancing on a separate Dogecoin chain.
http://dogechain.info/tx/3119125a77e1bee6f0786af4e15a8eea3ba1b64081e121796b552637a76f2eb1
We have a blockchain split on our hands. Bitcoin went through one of these too. It's going to need intervention.
What do I do? Stop sending DOGE and wait. I would also suggest waiting until the mining situation is sorted out, because there is a double-spend risk right now. You can view your client's current block in the Debug menu, under Help, for the Qt client.

UPDATE 4:48 AM UTC / 11:48 PM EST

How do I know if I'm on the wrong fork?

UPDATE 5:14 AM UTC / 12:14 AM EST

The network is responding. Between block 42475 and 42480 on the good chain, the network hash rate dropped from 20 GH/sec to 15 GH/sec and the difficulty dropped from 320.3 to 253.3.
Here's my getmininginfo from 2 minutes ago:
{ "blocks" : 42502, "currentblocksize" : 0, "currentblocktx" : 0, "difficulty" : 253.32507890, "errors" : "", "generate" : false, "genproclimit" : -1, "hashespersec" : 0, "networkhashps" : 14678218267, "pooledtx" : 698, "testnet" : false } 
That's what the good chain looks like.

UPDATE 5:32 AM UTC / 12:32 AM EST

My test client that I resynced as an experiment ended up on the bad fork. There's going to need to be an intervention here similar to Bitcoin's.

UPDATE 5:50 AM UTC / 12:50 AM EST

SCAMMERS ARE ATTEMPTING TO STEAL WALLETS IN THIS THREAD. IF YOU RECEIVE A MESSAGE LIKE THIS DO NOT COMPLY. DEVELOPERS WILL NOT PM YOU TO SEND THEM YOUR FILES.
http://puu.sh/6a5jz/da27d4ae05.png

UPDATE 7:31 AM UTC / 2:31 AM EST

Okay, I'm done with this thread, folks. The Dogecoin developers are on it and the amount of abusive private messages that I'm receiving mean I'm washing my hands.
Look for an official thread from developers next, the information is out and my role is done.
Credit to hoopycat -- please tip him -- who discovered the source of the problem, I'm trying to get the word out right now. I do not get credit for this post.

Start Here for Much Wallet WOW!

EDIT 2017-02-10: A word about Nodes

There is a discussion about nodes that came up today, where it seems I'm discouraging people from running the full QT/Core client. Yes and No. What I'm trying to make sure people understand is how things work, and that it is NOT mandatory to run a client in order to use Dogecoins (and yes, I realise that browser-based tools like coinb.in and wallet sweepers are 'clients' by strict definition).
That said, more nodes is absolutely a good thing for the network. Preferrably full nodes. How do you run a full node? Just run Core/QT and open up Port 22556 on your router so it can connect to more than 8 peers. What will it cost you? You need your machine to be on 24/7/365, you need enough storage for the full blockchain (currently about 20Gb. Bitcoin is over 120Gb) and enough bandwidth to keep it in sync and share blocks with peers. A couple of Gb a month, most likely. This is best done with a desktop on a wired broadband link. Or maybe a hosted VM in the cloud. :)

EDIT 2017-01-09: Wallets WITHOUT Clients

Since I started helping people on /BitcoinBeginners, I'm getting a lot of questions about how to use wallets without running clients or trusting third parties. So here are a couple of resources that will make that possible, and not just for Dogecoin:
Multi-Coin Wallet Generator Now supporting 129 currencies! Coinb.in Start by setting the currency, found in the gear wheel in the Broadcast tab. Dogecoin Wallet Sweeper Redeem 'paper' wallets containing up to about 100 UTXOs. Bitinfo Charts My favourite block explorer, handles a bunch of cryptos.
Using these resources, it is possible to hold, receive and spend coins in various currencies, without having to run QT or a 'lite' client. You can also download and run the pages on your own device.

EDIT 2016-11-23: SEMANTICS about MINING! :P

Even though there is already a section on mining below, it has been suggested given the huge number of posts on the subject that this needs to be made clearer. Since people get their panties in a twist over the word 'dead', lets change that...

MINING IS DEAD!

MINING DOGECOIN IS UNPROFITABLE!

Put simply, there is no way to mine Dogecoin and make a profit because of the massive hashpower provided by industrial-scale Litecoin miners. Mining Doge directly stopped being viable when our hashrate exploded with the introduction of AuxPoW. Mining with CPU's and GPU's died when ASICs were introduced. And mining with a laptop WILL kill your laptop and cost you a fortune to repair or replace. Mining Litecoin with an exchange that also mines Doge and others will earn less than the electricity consumed, and you won't recover your costs. Probably ever, but certainly not in any reasonable time.
Mining other currencies may be a thing, but that's beyond our scope here. This is /Dogecoin, not /GetRichMiningCryptos after all. If you want to mine the newest scamcoin for fun and profit, look elsewhere for advice. :/
Oh, and most important:

READ BEFORE YOU POST!

At any given time, there are half a dozen posts on the frontpage just like the one you're about to write, where the answers have already been given. Read them. Don't make people waste their time repeating themselves because you were too lazy to bother reading stuff. :P
So there I was, having a quiet Sundy arvo bludge, as you do, when 42points turned up on Facebook and asked me to write a new sticky post for /dogecoin. Why would he do this, when he should be having a bludge himself, I hear you ask? Well, seems he was doing exactly that, and wanted to fob off the work he’s too slack to do himself. ;) Ah well, being a sucker for punishment, I’ll grudgingly oblige I guess.

From peoplma
I was wondering if you could add just a couple things. A link to the coinomi android wallet, it's probably the best one out there. And a sentence somewhere along the lines of "if you need help with any dogecoin software you are welcome to make a post, but PLEASE include your OS, version number of the client, and any relevant transaction IDs that you are willing to share" if you can fit that in somewhere.
Also, if you want to link to Prohashing, I'm pretty sure it's the only Scrypt mining pool that will actually pay out in doge. The others I know of pay out in litecoin or bitcoin. And it's a profit switching multipool, so gives a better return than just mining ltc/doge.
And there's these two wiki articles I thought would be helpful to link /dogecoin/wiki/technical for those technically minded newbies or intermediate users who want to dig a little deeper. And maybe a link to /dogecoin/wiki/dogecoincoreguide next to the link for dogecoin core.
From pts2002
Finally a proper sticky post! Here's some other stuff you could add:
zpool.ca mining pool - You can get paid in pretty much any coin, and you can mine in multiple algos (currently mining lyra2v2 with my GPU). Doing about 500Ð/day
shapeshift.io exchange - My favourite exchange, quick and easy. No registration required!
Also, you should add some blockchain explorers!
chain.so - Support for bitcoin, litecoin and doge.
dogechain.info - Official blockchain explorer. Includes a wallet (already mentioned). Live update currently not working (?)
EDIT: Here's another thing I found!
preev.com currency value calculator - Easy way to check the value of your dogecoins (or bitcoins, or litecoins, or peercoins)!

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:

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

Is Bruces worry about the security of Ravencoin a curent issue?
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. Some of that stuff needs to be kept to his personal account
Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019
Probably not a development Question, what Bruce says on his own time. :persevere:
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
@Synicide Bruce don't wanna spend a fortune on restricted assets :yum:
Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019
I don't like it myself either though @Synicide
boatsandhoes03/29/2019
yeah the ravencoin twitter has been a bit..... not good to put it easy
Vincent03/29/2019
this is bruces baby...and fud should be taken lightly imo
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Bruce can say what he wants :_)
Chill03/29/2019
well, it is the unofficial official Twitter page, so it kind of does matter
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
We have taken measures to make sure ravencoin is safe and to stop 51% attacks
Synicide03/29/2019
I agree on his personal account. When people look up this project on twitter, they dont need a full page of fud
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
its not a very development orientated debate tho in fairness
Vincent03/29/2019
no news will stop a well designed code
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Many new users are asking about IPFS integration. Is this still being researched?
When 350? (350club)03/29/2019
I only asked as it appeared Bruce was saying there is a current security vulnerability..
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs what can people do to help secure the ravencoin network into 2019 and in the future?
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
@When 350? (350club) Bruce doesn't code, he wouldn't know
boatsandhoes03/29/2019
sorry, got a late start on this meeting. is kyc stuff on the table for discussion today, or is that at a later meeting?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@push | ravenland.org Looks at the PR's, make sure the code being added is well written and secure.
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019

[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Run nodes, and mine ravencoin!
