An engaging and personal look at her journey from CEO of a startup to a key member of one of the blockchains on the cutting edge of technological development.

Veronica wrote:

Why Ardor and Nxt?
I asked around and, to my surprise, I found experienced people close to me who became my mentors, my wise “Yodas”. One of them introduced me to Nxt and Ardor technology, which I quickly found matched the three “must haves” that I was looking for in my next project: (1) great and solid technology, (2) talented, engaged and passionate people, and (3) a fast growing project in a disruptive sector.

DEVELOPMENT

  • Last Ardor Testnet – Version 2.0.7.e

There is another mandatory testnet upgrade before the final Ardor mainnet launch.

Final preparations are being made ahead of the New Year’s launch of Ardor. This was the last upgrade to the testnet. Change log is below.

Extract from change log:

This release is a mandatory upgrade for all Ardor testnet nodes. It involves a reset of the existing testnet and starts from a new genesis block.

The new testnet genesis block is based on a snapshot of the Nxt blockchain at height 1624000. Forging on testnet is set to start at midnight UTC, Dec 22.

The BTC and USD testnet child chains have been removed, for consistency with the expected production child chains. The EUR child chain has been renamed to AEUR, with 2 decimals. Child chain ids for AEUR and Bitswift have changed to 3 and 4 respectively.

The child chain transaction types that affect only global platform entities and do not involve pricing or transfer of value are now allowed only on the IGNIS child chain. Such transactions currently are: asset issuance, setting account info, setting account properties, asset share increase, setting asset control, setting account control.

All fees have been reviewed and updated. Most fees have been decreased significantly, with the default Ardor chain fee set to 1 ARDR, and the default child chain fee to 0.01 ARDR.

  • Weekly Reminder – Regarding Network Issues

Last week many users discovered an error in their logs after experiencing network issues. The issue arose from too few nodes announcing their address via a parameter in the configuration folder. Jelurida is working on a more permanent solution but an immediate fix involves editing the suggested parameters in your NXT/conf folders and increasing the maximum number of connections.

Jelurida wrote:

In regards to the network issues that users experience – “No openAPI peers found” message in light client and “Maximum number of inbound connections exceeded” in the log:

The problem is that in the network there are too little nodes that announce their address via the nxt.myAddress property, and by default these nodes accept too small number of inbound connections (250).

We are working on a more sustainable solution, but it will require a new release.

For now I want to ask anyone who is running a public node, to first check if the node is accessible at the address announced with nxt.myAddress (port 7874 unless something else is set in the address), and then increase nxt.maxNumberOfInboundConnections.

How much to increase nxt.maxNumberOfInboundConnections depends on the hardware capabilities, 1000 should be safe even on weakest hardware. My node run for a day with 4000 inbound connections on VPS with 1GB of RAM. Then it run out of memory, but I also had a tesnet node there.

NXT IN THE MEDIA

  • Forbes – Are New Platforms Threatening The Hegemony Of Bitcoin And Ethereum?

Forbes wrote about smart-contract solutions offered by new platforms like Ardor. Ardor’s smart transaction framework makes it very easy for developers to write smart contracts, unlike with Ethereum.

Smart contract platform Qtum, for instance, boasts a faster consensus algorithm compared to Ethereum while Jelurida-developed Ardor offers scalability and customizability through its child chain technology.

  • Zerohedge – When It Comes to Secure Networks, Ethereum Isn’t the Only Game in Town

Ardor is mentioned as a competitor to Ethereum. The article highlights the versatility and scalability of Ardor as a major selling point for businesses. A very informative read.

They wrote:

One such challenger, Jelurida, has created two platforms it hopes will challenge Ethereum’s dominance. While NXT was accused of having too much in the way of deliverables, spreading its focus too thin, the company expects its most recent entrant into the platform game—Ardor will prove to be a silver bullet. Ardor is custom-designed to let developers easily build applications on the blockchain with minor input.

It also features some creative improvements on Ethereum’s blockchain, including its parent-child chain architecture, which reduces bloat on the main chain and allows for better maintenance of the overall network. Ardor also utilizes Proof-of-Stake, which reduces the strain on each node and eliminates the need for costly mining, as coins are minted.

Ardor’s use of child chains that stem off from the main chain also adds several layers of security. The main blockchain will prioritize the overall network’s security, remaining lightweight and adaptable to changing loads. Additionally, each child chain will have transactions and data that don’t affect the larger chain, so even localized breaches can easily be quarantined without causing larger issues.

Finally, NXT and Ardor both offer an improvement on Ethereum’s smart contracts. While ETH contracts are still the norm, there have been several instances where a poorly designed contract wipes out large chunks of the currency. Jelurida’s platforms use smart transactions that are not programmable, enhancing its overall security while providing less room for the error’s that commonly plague Ethereum.

Custom Crypto

Cryptocurrencies may be getting the attention, but blockchain has more potential in the long run. Jelurida and its peers have the right idea, creating blockchain solutions tailored specifically for individuals or companies to build on them swiftly and creatively. Much like Ripple created a niche market to focus on the needs of streamlining cross-border transactions, Ardor, NXT, and others can capitalize on the demand for an agile and secure blockchain platform to build applications.

  • CIO – The Rise of Blockchain-as-a-Service

Ardor is mentioned as a BaaS solution. The prunability and, hence, the solution to the blockchain bloat problem is highlighed and touted as a great solution for businesses.

They wrote:

 Jelurida, the group behind the pioneering proof-of-stake blockchain platform NXT, is now working on Ardor – a new project that is aimed at addressing blockchain’s scalability concerns for business users.

Jelurida also recognizes the need for businesses to anchor their blockchain efforts to a secure and scalable platform. Ardor improves upon its NXT platform to provide a more scalable and customizable BaaS solution. Central to Ardor is its child chain technology. A business using Ardor could customize its own child chain to keep its data separate from other organizations’ data on the blockchain. Child chains are still validated by all nodes on the network and can be pruned at a scheduled time. This reduces bloat on the main chain.

  • Max Keiser – Blockchain Companies Still Need to Overcome Their Fatal Flaw

What is the fatal flaw of the blockchain? Scalability. The blockchain bloat problem is haunting Ethereum and Bitcoin. These platforms are not scalable as they are weighed down by their, immutable, histories. Ardor has a unique and elegant solution to this problem with their parent/child chain architecture. The prunability of Ardor child chains makes them lightweight, secure and very easy for businesses to deploy.

They wrote:

The Long Term Solution for Blockchain Scalability

Sensing a need for true scalability, the Jelurida group is working on their second platform, Ardor. The platform operates on a BaaS model that uses a parent chain in conjunction with several different child chains.

The model’s parent chain is purposefully small. Its main objective is to guarantee the security of the entire network, including the child chains. The platform’s additional functions will all run on child chains, allowing the blockchain to streamline processes and scale rapidly. Because the parent chain is built for security and other operations can be executed through child chains, blockchain bloat will decrease dramatically.

The brilliance of the platform is that it allows companies to create their own projects off of the platform in the form of child chains. They can be pruned without affecting the security of the parent chain while also allowing transactions to be paid in any child token, rather than the parent chain’s token. This gives companies the opportunity to still run as unique, autonomous entities while also enjoying the security of the parent chain. All chains will run smoothly because the architecture of the BaaS platform is designed to solve the bloat issue.

Additionally, the platform utilizes the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus method as opposed to the costly and energy inefficient Proof-of-Work (PoW) protocol. This is particularly important to startups who want to implement blockchain technology but may have a hard time due to the high costs associated with PoW mining. PoS mining is also the preferable method in places where government regulators could crack down on blockchains’ high energy consumption.

Those who are new to blockchain technology can rest assured that the implementation curve is very shallow. The platform integrates well with APIs and is built in Java, resulting in an easy-to-use application. In light of these factors, it is quite likely that more companies will begin using BaaS models to improve their business operations.

  • Investing – Ethereum Might Be A Victim Of Its Own Success, See 4 Alternatives Here

Ardor is mentioned as a competitor to Ethereum in the enterprise sector, which is very true. Ardor was created to solve specific blockchain problems and is being marketed, successfully, as a great and easy way for businesses to develop and deploy their own blockchain apps.

They wrote:

Ardor is another blockchain platform that has the potential to displace Ethereum as the go-to blockchain for the enterprise segment. In fact, businesses that need a Blockchain-as-a-service platform will find undeniable potential in Ardor’s value proposition. Ardor will make it easy for businesses to create their own blockchains using parent-child chains instead of the bloated nodes of some of the popular blockchains.

Credit: Coinmarketcap.com

Credit: Coinmarketcap.com

Using the Nxt technology created by its parent company Jelurida, Ardor’s blockchain simply has a main chain and a practically endless number of child chains. The main chain holds all Ardor token (ARDR) transactions but other features of the blockchain will be inaccessible in order to ensure improved performance and limit the odds of blockchain bloat. The child chains in turn are meant for businesses that want to create their own blockchain complete with tokens, aliasing, data cloud, account control, marketplace, and secure messaging among others.

Another key factor that gives Ardor’s blockchain an edge over Ethereum is that Ardor uses a Proof-of-stake (PoS) network as opposed to a Proof-of-work (PoW) system that Ethereum uses. The Proof-of-stake system is resistance to potential censorship threat that could cripple the cryptocurrency industry because it doesn’t require heavy mining and the need for a mining factory. Interestingly, Ethereum has started to consider the idea of switching to a Proof-of-stake model; hence, Ardor is on the right path and with a first mover advantage over Ethereum.

  • AltClub – NXT price $6+ with 50% Free Ignis

A terrible and poorly written article that attacks Jelurida, Christianity, and the kitchen sink. We advise against reading the inflammatory content in this article as it will only confuse you do the writer having the grammar and syntactical abilities of a child. We at Nxter are above such petulant attacks but there is value in reading Lior’s responses to the claims.

User MikeA – Still uploading in parts (long article).

http://alts-club.com/docs/nxt-price-usd6-with-free-ignis.php

 

Lior Yaffe responded:

1. The date chosen for the snapshot is partially based on our past experience that our community members are working class people that actually on the holiday season will have more time follow the snapshot and launch process and perform the necessary testing. From this reason we also release many of our releases on Saturday even though we have nothing against Judaism.

2. The block height change was necessary since when we announced it in October we didn’t fully realize that exchanges will have to stop trading ARDR between the snapshot block and the Ardor launch. Once we realized this we decided to delay it by few days in order to shorten this time period. So oversight yes, but nothing sinister.

3. As to market manipulation and insider trading. Jelurida announced upfront that we will sell most of the NXT we raise and this is what we did. Take a look at account NXT-72LE-QYEV-D3LE-AM8G7 where we keep the ICO funds. This is all done transparently for anyone to see.
It’s really simple, account NXT-Y5Z8-XEQC-3AW2-46CF6 is the account which issued the JLRDA currency and received the NXT collected in the ICO, since this wasn’t a mulitsig account (long story) we constantly sent the collected NXT to account NXT-72LE-QYEV-D3LE-AM8G7 which is a multisig account and from there gradually to the Bittrex hot wallet NXT-97H4-KRWL-A53G-7GVRG – all recorded on the blockchain for anyone to see

  • TradingView – NXT – Here’s why it’s about to Skyrocket!

One of the biggest end of the week movers in the cryptocurrency space last week was (NXT), Here’s why it’s about to skyrocket! The justification for its existence is rooted in the deficiencies of what we might deem the first generation of cryptocurrencies – bitcoin -6.56 %, Litecoin etc. While these coins have expanded to become well-established in their own right, they each have drawbacks and – as adoption and mainstream use of these coins increases – the severity of these drawbacks will increase in tandem. The creators of NXT recognized this and set out to create what is essentially a brand-new type of cryptocurrency and, by proxy, one that seeks to resolve the issues associated with first-generation coins. Isolation, NXT uses what’s called a Proof of Stake ( PoS 4.52% ) algorithm to process transactions, as compared to bitcoin’s PoW. PoS 4.52% doesn’t require mining, immediately solving the efficiency issue. PoS 4.52% can also handle a dramatically increased amount of transactions per second, with this increased volume once again based on the fact that mining-based block verification isn’t necessary. The coin is up 25% over the last twenty-four hours and closes to 1,300% over the last four weeks. as bitcoin -6.56% becomes more popular – it’s drawbacks are going to become more apparent. We saw this yesterday with the more than 200,000 transactions stacked up and delayed as participants rushed into take advantage of the gains we were seeing in the market overnight. Final conclusion with Technical, NXT against BTC -6.56% is forming a Bullish flag anticipation of week BTC -6.56% and short-term gains to NXT, Which will Initially mine us our profit with this short term, long looking trade,
