Nxter News – June 2018 (II): Those Who Are Crazy Enough To Think They Can Change the World Usually Do

June (II)

 

Welcome, dear Nxters and other followers!

People tend to like the familiarity of routines and changing the world is often lumped in with “delusions of grandeur.” It was crazy for bicycle shop owners to think that man could fly and yet the Wright brothers built the first plane. It was crazy to think we could slip the bounds of our planet and go into the stars and yet we landed on the Moon! Maybe only crazy people change the world. If being crazy gets us things like flight and space travel, then why would you want to be normal? Not everyone can invent something new, but everyone can see ways to improve the world and everyone should be brave enough to act on those “crazy” ideas.

Last week in the realm of crazy ideas we have our favorite purveyor of distributed sequentially hashed file technology, Jelurida, promoting their products across the globe – with an emphasis this week on being in Silicon Valley. Nxter is going to change soon (DEAL WITH IT!) and we are teasing a new app ecosystem, the Ardor Bootcamp Udemy course is still a thing, the Triffic ICO is about to begin and is being well-reviewed, CoinDesk offhandedly insulted the Ardor community, and much more.

Thank you for being with us as we take you on a journey through the busy week that was. Just imagine what is next – it would be crazy of you to do so!

  • Jelurida

Since “a picture is worth a thousand words” below is 3000 words worth of pictures.

Last week in Lugano, Switzerland – there was the ICO Race, in part sponsored by Jelurida. Vivien from EZYcount (seen in the above picture next to our friend Travin Keith (Agavon) on the right) blogged about his experience:

As the crypto world is a bit crazy, the competition named ICO Race takes place in the big hall where 20 teams with each more ambitious projects than the other fighting with PowerPoints and shock statements. There’s nothing wrong; the team that finishes first receives 600’000 euros (partly cash, partly services)!

The whole day is going at incredible speed. Between meetings and encounters no time to sleep.

Travin is smiling and full of energy. He participates in a panel discussion in the afternoon. I look forward to hearing it. We take advantage of this appointment so that he introduces me to the team of Jelurida. Jelurida is the company behind Ardor, the blockchain technology we use. They just moved the head office to Lugano. During this day, I learn that it is not the only crypto company that recently moved to Lugano. It seems to me that the blockchain companies in Switzerland are mostly in Zug and Geneva and newly Lugano!

The day ends, the Pigzbe project wins the first prize. Bravo Pigzbe! I get back on a train and think back of this exciting day: many business cards in my pockets, tomorrow the thank you emails will be sent.

  • What is the Ardor Blockchain-as-a-Service Model?

There exists some confusion about how Ardor is a good BaaS solution. Lior directly answered this in the video below.

Veronica wrote:

How does the Ardor Blockchain-as-a-Service offering work? Blockchain-as-a-Service is only as good as the Blockchain application it is built upon, and in this video, Lior speaks to the differences between other Blockchain-as-a-Service offerings, and the Ardor platform, and why it has natural advantages.

  • SIGBRO Wallet | NXTER.ORG

At Nxter we are preparing to roll out some changes.

A new brand design has been worked on for months, as well as some new services.

Nxter will launch with a new logo, a rebranded and more structured website; to help you engage better with our massive selection of way too hidden content concerning all aspects of the Nxt and Ardor ecosystems. The new design will be rolled out in our email newsletter, social media channels, the website, the tools, and services gradually, in all languages.

With the “relaunch” of Nxter Magazine, we will also present you with some new tools and services. SIGBRO Wallet is one of them. In March we mentioned our upcoming mobile app, and our AEUR WooCommerce plugin. What we are aching to present to you is a software bundle, a gateway to the Nxt blockchain and the Ardor child chain features, which will be easy for anyone to set up and use on their own websites, and in their daily life, without any coding knowledge.

English | French | Spanish | Russian | Chinese | Korean

Soft launch: https://nxter.org/wallet (will be updated often as we move forward – bookmark it)

ETA: August 1st

https://www.nxter.org/wallet/ – not quite the wallet yet.
We very much look forward to sharing this with our community and the wonderful ever-growing ecosystem.

 

  • Ardor Bootcamp Update

Remember the Nxter review of the Ardor Bootcamp course? There is a bonus code inside that article for you if you want to attend; efunkem (the creator) has great plans for updating the Udemy content. We encourage everyone to take this online class if you desire to learn more about the Ardor platform and its robust functionality, remember it is online so you can go at your own pace!

efunkem wrote:

An update on the Ardor Bootcamp class on Udemy:

– I’m working on improving some of the videos. I pushed it out pretty fast and want to add more details and just improve it overall. Anticipate summer 2018 for a refresh.
– going to add videos based on the medium articles that @riker publishes
– so far have had about 40 signups, about 15 from ppl on here who already know about it, but about 25 who found it through Udemy and are getting exposed to Ardor for the first time!
– overall feedback has been positive. I’ve only had one review with less than 4 stars.
– going to build a series of other classes about the Jelurida stack: other child chains as well as other projects that are copying the NXT code like Apollo. I can advertise these on the other currencies Slack/Telegram to drive traffic to my classes, which will all reference the wonders of Jelurida and Ardor, hopefully increasing interest and exposure
– going to launch advertising for the class, starting with Twitter
– considering launching an affiliate program. Give people 100 unique coupon codes, I’ll send you 20% of profit for anyone you can get to sign up for the class (happy to convert USD to NXT or Ardor and send to you). Let me know if interested in this
– considering launching an Ardor Bootcamp Advertising Asset. Money raised from sales of the asset will be used to purchase ads. Profits split evenly between the asset via the dividend feature. Will also generate voting (restricted to those who own the asset) so that the group decides what kind of ads we want to run.
– overall, lots of cool stuff on the horizon for my Udemy classes and will focus on spreading the word about Ardor! I found that charging people for the info actually makes them more likely to use it, as opposed to free info that they ignore. Always open to suggestions or ideas!

BUSINESSES ON ARDOR

  • Dominium

Veronica, of Jelurida, told us that a child chain agreement is not signed, yet.

An important clarification here: Dominium is testing and evaluating the Ardor technology, it is NOT BASED YET in the Ardor technology, they are seriously considering it 🙂

Still, Dominium is advertising themselves as an Ignis asset and a property platform built on the Ardor blockchain. As seen in the above tweet, Dominium has seen a large interest in their airdrop and asset. Also – as is often the case – the huge interest revealed bugs, all of which they have crunched: email and SMS verification links did not work at all times – fixed, and 2FA with Google Authenticator has been added as an option, “whois” details for their website are now public, the site’s SSL certificate has been upgraded, and a translation module is in place. 

Dominium also acknowledged that they will add different levels to their AML/KYC registration process. The details are below:

Another often heard complaint is the level of AML / KYC we are demanding. This is of course because we started from the position that everyone will be a potential investor for assets (securities). As we are also putting an international property portal on the platform, this will not always be the case, so next week we are separating the clearance levels into three levels as follows:

  • Clearance level 1
    • Requires the completion of your contact details and an upload of an image of you holding your ID next to your face for identification purposes (the image and ID need to be clear and legible)
    • This level allows you to purchase and trade utility tokens (DOM), list properties and rent (share) and buy properties
  • Clearance level 2
    • Requires the upload of a proof of address and proof of tax number
    • This level allows you to purchase and trade all assets (securities), although some jurisdictional restrictions may apply
  • Clearance level 3
    • Requires the completion of a number of questions and a declaration that you are a qualified investor
    • This level allows you to invest in all assets without restrictions

Once all this has been build, we will start working on the whitelisting for the Dominium ICO (and if you are fast the PRE-ICO) and shopping cart, as we will be dealing with the full functionality of the ICO ourselves. This is after all the best way to stress test the platform for future asset listings and their ICO’s.

This week and next we are doing more marketing and we look forward to welcoming many more users to our community.

  • Triffic ICO

By the time you read this, the updated Triffic whitepaper should be released. The Triffic ICO was well-reviewed and should be high on many people’s priority list for participation come July, when it officially begins.

Also, coinerz wrote:

Our first ICO review is in and I’m delighted to say that Triffic scored top marks! https://www.trackico.io/ico/triffic/

 

GPS TOKEN PRESALE BEGINS JULY 2, 2018 AT 09:00PST

Public Sale Supply: 100,000,000 GPS Tokens / Total Supply: 1,000,000,000 GPS Tokens

James Malach (coinerz):

Apart from the ICO, nobody ‘buys tokens’. They are given to people who use the app in many different ways. Travelling about, creating vouchers, buying and selling in the marketplace, using personal services and much more. Unlike most tokens that are sold in an ICO, GPS Tokens actually have a use – they power the whole app ecosystem. Something that very much requires blockchain technology – and Ardor already provides much of the functionality we need.

  • EZYcount, AI-Automated Blockchain Accounting

This week, meet Vivien, CEO of EZYcount. Vivien wrote about their upcoming Pre-ICO, involving Tokens-as-a-License (TaaL).

Vivien wrote:

At EZYcount, we envisage accounting for the self-employed and small business owners as being automated and decentralised so they can focus on what matters instead of managing accounts.

Accounting can and should be completed automatically. Connection to payment systems, e-commerce websites and invoicing systems enable our AI to complete tasks automatically that would manually take hours to do. Bookings are created automatically and fully completed financial statements are available within a couple of clicks, and following analysis of your data, EZYcount AI can provide you with tips to improve your financial stability.

We support strong data ownership laws that protect individuals and ensure they have ownership of their data. Decentralisation ensures you will have full ownership of your data and can decide how it should be used.

In order to give an incentive to participate at our Pre-ICO, we decided to take an unconventional approach. Instead of just granting the Pre-ICO participants a discount we will give out a completely different Token during the Pre-ICO.

The Token available during the Pre-ICO is the Token-as-a-Licence (TaaL) which represents a lifelong and tradable license for our AI automated blockchain accounting solutions. The function of the Token available during the main ICO will have a different functionality which will be shared with our Community later on.

Their whitepaper is soon to be released – you can sign up to receive it here.

CLONES

  • Metrodex

Metro, the Nxt clone and hybrid DEX we have been writing about over the last couple of weeks, has released their source code and a reward program to incentivize devs to take a look at it, and go for a bug-hunt.

 

Metro wrote:

We’re happy to announce that our code has been released on GitHub! https://github.com/metrosoftware

We also have a reward program for finding bugs in our code. You’ll get 1,000, 5,000 or 15,000 MTR for each bug depending on its severity.

Bounty hunters – check the code and enter their discussion in this BCT thread.

NXT Snapshot block: 1894000 (approximately on June 22nd).

100,000,000 MTR coins or 10% of the max circulation supply will be distributed to the holders of NXT. For each 10 NXT on your (own) wallet at the moment of the snapshot, you will get 1MTR.

Also, 100,000,000 MTR coins go to the Metro development team.

Airdrop coins will be locked on the blockchain start. Every mined block will unlock 1/200,000 of locked balances. Thus, about 1000 initial distributed MTR will be unlocked every mined block. The whole initial distributed stake will be unlocked when miners receive 400,000,000 MTR.

  • Apollo (APL) Airdrop – DONE!

Apollo claims to be the first cryptocurrency with all the features of blockchain in one place.

Nowhere in their whitepaper is Nxt mentioned, however as a veteran Nxter, or just slightly familiar with the Nxt Reference Software wallet and features, reading through Apollo’s materials is like one big deja vu. The Apollo team has honored the JPL and distributed 10% of their coins to NXT holders.

The plan is to add further privacy features and – eventually – replace the Nxt protocol.

Having utilized NXT technology as our base, we are developing Hermes to be it’s replacement. Hermes will allow the Apollo blockchain to grow faster and healthier the larger the Apollo user base grows, rather than slower as with most cryptocurrencies on the market. Where as our current speed may be 20 to 30 seconds on average (transaction times will differ) Hermes will allow for transaction speeds of 2-3 seconds. Our goal in integrating Hermes is to become the safest, fastest and most private cryptocurrency on the market.

You can see your airdropped APL coins by logging into https://apollowallet.org with your Nxt account address. We recommend you NOT to login to any online node by using your passphrase, as this is the same passphrase that gives access to all your NXT, your other airdropped coins + probably also your holdings on the Ardor blockchain platform.

In order to move airdropped coins into a new account, we recommend you to create a new account address, set up a transaction of all your clone coins to this new account using the online clone client – but instead of signing online with your passphrase click “Advanced” > “Do Not Sign” > “Do Not Broadcast”.

Now copy the unsigned Transaction Bytes, and transfer them into the NxtBridge OFFLINE tool. Sign with your passphrase (private key), and copy the signed transaction bytes back into the online clone client. Broadcast the signed transaction bytes (cogwheel > Transaction Operations > Broadcast Transaction). You have now moved your clone coins to a brand new account without exposing your passphrase to the clone server, or anyone on the internet even.

Should we make a “How-To” video?

Nxt community member and developer, SwissAlps, announced an APL exchange in nxtforum:

What are you going to do with APL coins ????

  • keep them
  • sell them, in this case you can now use https://nxttracker.com/ArdorExchange.html, I have just implemented this !!!
  • buy some more, in this case you can wait until I have bought enough APL (my plan is to get 1M APL), then you will be able to buy APL using BTC, ARDR or NXT  ;D ;D ;D

  • Volp Coin Update

Last week we mentioned VOLP coin for the first time, as the team issued a placeholder asset on the Ignis chain, which will be their crowdsale token before they launch their new protocol – a hybrid between a Nxt clone and their Volp AI protocol. There is no date for the ICO or the airdrop to NXT holders yet, but the Volp team decided to enlighten us with some more details last week about their project.

They wrote:

Recently, a user asked questions that encouraged us in advance to write more about the Volp Protocol, we believe that this information is important for everyone.

With the Volpcoin beta, we obtained through parallel simulator results up to 2 million transactions per compacted block with dimensions of approximately 5 kB. These data refer to the tests applied in Volpcoin beta through a pilot implementation of the Volp protocol.

We use a hybrid VM kernel that we built from scratch to run in symbiosis with the Volp protocol along with a compiler of our own, specific to this application. Soon we will make available all the technical data on the website and the behavior collected by us during the period that volpcoin beta was active.

Note: The size of the results obtained in the compression of the Volp protocol may seem empirical, but it’s one of the most important things that we could project in the period of 2002-2006. We are at this very moment, performing load stress on the protocol, so we can identify underlying anomalies.

IN THE MEDIA

  • Lior Yaffe at Medium – Stateful vs. Stateless Blockchain Contracts, Or what is wrong with Ethereum Contracts and how the new Ardor Lightweight Contracts can fix this

In Lior’s latest Medium post he explains the pitiful state (pun intended) of smart contracts. Technical in the extreme, but extremely informative.

Lior wrote:

Ethereum Contracts are Stateful

….

To summarize, relying on the contract to save its state is a bad idea, it opens up many attack vectors and manipulation options and also causes constant risk of locking funds in a contract because of difficult to find bugs.

Ardor Lightweight Contracts to the rescue

Since lightweight contracts are executed by a single node not by all nodes, there is no risk of flooding the blockchain with duplicate messaging transactions. As you can see the contract is invoked, does some processing, submits some transactions and quits. The next invocation of the contract does not rely on any data saved into the contract itself so can run in parallel.

We believe that the stateless approach to contract execution used by Ardor will prove safer and more scalable compared to other stateful approaches.

  • CoinDesk Mentions (Insults) Ardor

Wow…just wow. CoinDesk is probably the preeminent name in the blockchain space and to be humiliated by them is – initially – an affront. The gist of this article is supposed to be the toxicity of cryptocurrency fanbases on Twitter – a valid point. But the explicit accusations of our Nxter community as being the champion of a toxic, social media “bias train” is a step too far. To demonize an entire community based on a tweet is a very poor metric to casually dismiss the legitimate desires of many. Do not be the troll, Mr. Casey – if people ask you to pay attention to a PoS blockchain 3.0 project that has spent more effort in developing a quality product since 2013 than it has on the marketing / hype-train then perhaps it is worth doing so. Far be it from us to tell you what to do and what to dismiss but your “casual” dismissal of an entire ecosystem based on such petty and petulant things as some tweets is frankly insulting and unprofessional. Kindly, don’t mix your emotions up with lack of research, or, in the worst case, it could be read as a bad attempt at spinning.

Here’s the infamous comment:

https://twitter.com/AvdiuSazan/status/1001801842416934915

The author wrote:

OK, Ardor fans. You have your wish. Your favorite token is getting a mention on CoinDesk.

Not, perhaps, for the reasons you want. But they do say all publicity is good publicity. So, there you have it. The response to my column last week on layer-two solutions was mostly positive with the usual dose of critics, but it was the Ardor tribe who caught my attention when one reader’s tweet, complaining that I hadn’t mentioned the blockchain platform, prompted others to pile on with accusations of my bias and ignorance.

  • The Wiremaster – Buy and Sell a Property on Blockchain

Will buying and selling property on the blockchain be the “killer app” that makes blockchain a “must have” piece of technology? This article insists that a future of listing real estate on a blockchain and using tethered tokens like AEUR, and stateless Lightweight Contracts, our suggestion, can propel the homebuying experience onto the blockchain. Read an Ardor use case.

The Wiremaster wrote:

Let’s suppose that you found your dream apartment in Germany and after you had a look at it and you’re convinced that it is the one, you decide to go on with the process

Imagine that we had a digital identity on the Ardor platform and that there was a land registry right into the Ardor blockchain with each property being represented by a singleton asset.

So after you have agreed on the sale price:
– the bank sets up a Phased Transaction (bank, buyer, seller and notary have to approve) in AEUR (Ardor) towards the seller and confirm the mortgage amount.
– the buyer sets up a Phased Transaction (all parties have to approve — as above) in AEUR towards the seller with the deposit agreed
– seller sets up a Phased transaction (all parties have to approve — as above) with the transfer of the singleton asset, representing the property, to the buyer
(…)
In this way all verifications can be done and the final approval would allow the transfer of funds and the property asset. By transferring the singleton asset, the official property registry is automatically updated as it’s in the blockchain itself.

What could come next, is a full trustless property sale where the notary would not be needed. Once all transactions are approved by all parties, they will be executed at the Phased transaction’s predefined deadline. E.g. after the deadline is reached, the money from the buyer and the bank are transferred to the seller and the property ownership is being transferred to the buyer.

  • 101blockchains – Ardor vs Ethereum: What Are the Pros And Cons?

A simple refresher on the business use cases of Ardor – easy to implement and easy to maintain. Our readers know this, but it is nice to see the larger community realizing that Ethereum is not the “prodigal child” of the blockchain space.

They wrote:

Ardor being an evolution of NXT, which was the first [altcoin] ever built from scratch, comes with a lot of improvements made possible by the alteration of the underlying blockchain. For starters, it frees itself from much data to enhance efficiency and speed through the creation of multiple chains.

In contrast, Ethereum just like Bitcoin stores and processes transactions on a single blockchain. For this reason, it currently has a capacity of 121 GB blockchain which means revalidation must take place for all new nodes. This explains its scalability issues.

Security with Ardor blockchain is also on another level thanks to the parent-child chains that separate transactions and data from one another.

Nxter News – June 2018 (I): A Man Who Has No Imagination Has No Wings

June (I)

 

Welcome, dear Nxters and other followers!

Thanks to our imaginations we have many wonderful things that make our lives better – including sliced bread, planes, staples, sunscreen, and literally dozens more. The blockchain is such a technology; once someone’s imagination turned into reality. Once I was like “sequentially hashed files” why would I care about such a boring and trivial thing? Yet this vision is now a reality that we know as a blockchain. What imagination do you have, dear reader? Hopefully, your job has not sucked all creativity out of you! Sliced bread was once just someone’s imagination – staples were once just someone’s imagination – the blockchain was once just someone’s imagination! Take a few seconds to consider a life without sliced bread, staples, or the blockchain – HA! if you just now pictured a world without those things then you have an imagination and you are capable of imagining something great! With Nxt and Ardor, great things can quickly turn real – here is what the ecosystem turned into reality last week:

Jelurida was well represented in many cities across the globe, the Nxter newsletter is now translated into Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Russian, and French, the Triffic ICO is scheduled, also, Dominium – an upcoming regulated child chain-based property management platform announced their ICO on Ignis, Singleton assets were explained, MetroDEX and another Nxt clone – the Volp A.I. protocol, – will have an airdrop for NXT holders, and much much more!

Thank you for being with us as we take you on a journey through the busy week that was. Just imagine what is next.

COMMUNITY

  • Jelurida

Last week Jelurida was giving demonstrations of their products across the world!

Ardor and Nxt Presented Across the Globe – Oxford, London, Monaco and New York

In a press release, Jelurida summarized their actions from two weeks ago:

Jelurida, the development company of Ardor and Nxt blockchain platforms, continued to expand its international presence over the past week with team members attending four major blockchain events worldwide in Oxford, London, Monaco, and New York City.

Live demonstrations of the Ardor platform were given, and valuable connections were made with members of the blockchain community:

  • In Oxford, students, researchers and professors gathered at The Oxford Foundry startup accelerator for a live demo event of blockchain technology organized by the Blockchain Oxford Network. Jelurida plans a return visit to this location in Q4 2018.

  • In London, Veronica Torras and Alberto Fernandez from Jelurida attended the Global Blockchain Summit and presented to top corporate executives from companies such as IBM, Henkel, Deloitte, Samsung and others. They were shown the Ardor platform and an overview of the challenges of blockchain today. Jelurida was the main sponsor of the event.

  • In Monaco, Tomislav Gountchev and Kristina Kalcheva attended the first Monaco International Blockchain tradeshow. They had the opportunity to meet with interesting projects such as MonoeciCrypto4AllWorld of Blockchains and many others and explained the powerful capabilities of Ardor and Nxt to those looking to learn about available blockchain technology options.

  • And, in New York City, Elizabeth Mong (well known as @TheCryptoWoman) from ANG attended Consensus 2018 – one of the most significant blockchain events in the US. She made valuable connections with the NYC and US blockchain community, shared information about the Ardor and Nxt blockchain solutions and even enjoyed a cruise organized by Decentral.

BUSINESSES ON ARDOR

  • Dominium ICO Announced

Proptech startup, Dominium, announced their launch, airdrop, referral program and ICO.

The property platform is developed and funded by Munte Immobilien and Max Property Group, which have nearly two centuries of experience in the property business and hundreds of millions of euros of property under management.

The Dominium platform has been under development since 2017 and will be operational in 2018. The Dominium token (DOM) starts as an ICO asset token in the Ignis blockchain, later to turn into a regulated DOMINIUM token on its own Ardor child chain. Dominium tokens are backed by real businesses with existing assets, a proven business model, and a working team.

From their press release:

The Dominium property platform will allow users to list, trade, finance and manage property assets utilizing a suite of tools, with all activities safely recorded on the blockchain. Property investors will have instant access to legally compliant property listings available at a unique low entry point (from 1 euro). They will be able to trade assets on the platform, providing an immediate exit strategy, without the use of fund managers, agents or other centralized parties, provided their account is approved.

The Dominium blockchain is based on an Ardor childchain which is designed to avoid blockchain bloat and high transaction fees and times. The self-funded platform has gone live in seven languages, with many features already fully functional. The Dominium airdrop and referral program are now available to anyone registering on the platform, and the company aims to launch a pre-ICO and an ICO in the coming months for the sale of the DOM utility token which will be used to pay for all activities on the platform.

  • Triffic ICO

Last week the Triffic team officially released their ICO information. The date to circle on your calendars is on July 2nd, 2018. The Triffic team has gone to great lengths to be “fully-compliant,” which is just a fancy way of saying that it is legal for Americans to participate. Those readers with keen eyes might have noticed that many ICO’s offered a disclaimer that said they explicitly prohibit Americans from participating (not that it actually did) – this stems from the fact that the US regulatory agency: the SEC, has filed several “cease and desist” orders against American ICO’s in the past. Luckily for us, this Ardor-backed ICO is in every way legal in the EU, the USA, and across the world.

  • VolpCoin

No, that is not VoIP but VOLP. First announced in July 2017 as a minable Bitcoin-Ethereum hybrid coin, a new thread launched in October, and now a new thread again, announcing the ongoing swap of old Volp-tokens to new ones on Ignis, to “revitalize” the project, as in Stage 2 the project will be moving to a Nxt clone, the Volp devs wrote. 

This can be anything, tbh. According to the limited information available, a small team is developing an AI-based decentralized blockchain protocol, with compression of blocks as part of their grand vision, all of which will be free for everyone to use. The forum threads are, unfortunately, filled with much silence, unanswered questions, and scam-accusations, which prevent us from being able to describe their project and trust-level well. Their code is currently closed source.

What we do know is this: that there will be an airdrop of Volp-tokens to NXT holders and that the team may need all the help they can get to bootstrap their new Nxt-based blockchain when it is ready.

Nxter Magazine reached out to the Volp-developers and asked them:

Will you be a Nxt clone? Or an asset on the Ardor asset exchange, until your own blockchain protocol is launched? Will you fundraise the development of Volp with Ignis – I see 0.55 IGNIS per Volp on your website (but another price in the Asset Exchange)?

 

Their response:

VolpCoin:
Hello ! Thanks for your contact,

We mention Nxt because we plan to release our new version of the Volp wallet, which will be based on the Nxt Client. We already have a hybrid prototype running on localhost Nxt / Volp A.I. We opted for the Nxt platform, due to its dynamism and already having a solid development.

And it would still help a lot in adapting the protocol, because we want to contribute even more to the issues of scalability and blockchain size, using learning algorithms and tools in conjunction with artificial intelligence, which will significantly contribute to Big Data applications.

So , we decided to launch the Volp token and opted for the Ardor / Ignis platform because we believe that in the future we will be migrating to a child chains. We will certainly contribute to a significant improvement in the blockchain technology. Yes, we are planning to do a crowdsale campaigns at Ardor.

  • Metrodex

MetroDEX, a decentralized cross-chain cryptocurrency exchange service built using Nxt technology, will, per the terms of the JPL, airdrop 10% of their tokens to NXT holders. The details of the upcoming MetroDEX ICO (July according to their roadmap) will be released soon. The gist is that for every 10 NXT you have in your Nxt NRS client wallet, you will receive 1 MTR token. Specifics to follow.

 

 

Roadmap

JULY 2017 – Concept and Research. (done)
JANUARY 2018 – Development start. (done)
MAY 2018 – White paper, announce (done)
JUNE 2018 – Stage 1: Hybrid POW/POS blockchain implementation. Open source code. (coming soon)
JULY 2018 – Blockchain start. Airdrop.
SEPTEMBER 2018 – Stage 2: Transmitting hubs.
DECEMBER 2018 – Stage 3: Real time trading platform.
MARCH 2019 – Stage 4: Two side peg with Ethereum Classic.

They wrote:

100,000,000 metro tokens (10% of total supply) will be distributed to NXT holders on start, in accordance with JPL licence since we use NXT blockchain code as a base for Metro blockchain.

To participate in airdrop:

Download NXT client and create a wallet.
Buy NXT on any exchange.
Place NXT tokens into your wallet. Wait snapshot block.

For every 10 NXT on your wallet you receive 1 MTR with the same passphrase on Metro blockchain. Snapshot block number is 1894000.

  • More About Transaction Vouchers

Transaction Vouchers, we have mentioned before and this week we focus on a technical discussion from the forums. Vouchers are more than just “invoices” as Lior explained below:

Introduction

The discussion:

thomasveil – How will spamming with the vouchers be prevented?
I can imagine them getting send amass in his that noobs accidentally pay them. Also thinking “invoices” might be a clearer name for these.

mrv777 – I’m guessing there is still a fee to write anything to the blockchain

thomasveil – Still tricky. Fee must be high enough that spamming won’t pay off. But low enough so the feature is used.

riker –  The vouchers UI will clearly explain which exact voucher you are accepting before you accept it. And we’ll try to warn against common attacks.

To encrypt messages client side take a look at test.nrs.encryption.js it has several examples.

The existing wallet already performs message encryption client side so this shouldn’t be difficult to implement.

The reason we choose the name voucher over invoice or the Bitcoin style payment request is that vouchers can do much more than payments. They can represent a request for vote delegation or account leasing for example.

  • Weekly Reminder – Singleton Assets

Hooray for nondivisible assets! Did your eyes glaze over just now? If they did – let us offer a significant example: CryptoKitties (yes those ugly, Ethereum NFT’s). Part of what makes these assets valuable is that they cannot be subdivided or diluted in any way. In the Ardor ecosystem, the term for such an asset is a “Singleton asset” and anyone can create one with the Ardor client. The following discussion from the forums delves into specific use cases of such assets.

The discussion:

– Sirpask > There are some projects (e.g. theatre tickets, sport-event tickets, and many others) that would need that a new coin generated in the Monetary System were numbered (kind of a secondary serial number, a surname, an attached text string or message…) to identify a specific raw/seat in that event.

Currently this is not feasible to be done with Singleton Assets, because hundreds of different singleton assets would need to be created. Could this feature be added in the future?

– napdude > hmm generate X number of integer coins, each coin can only be spent in whole to other addresses.
Establish transaction to add information to a coin.
Set up coin so that one group of attributes can only be set by the coin issuer when issuer owns the coin, one group can be set by issuer at all times, and one group can be set by owner at all times the coins could be part of ignis.
if issuer allows, coins sb exchangeable on asset exchange, much like assets are. Coins could optionally have an expiry date after which they can be purged from the blockchain

– josenxt > How would you add that information to a MS coin? Through an API call?

– napdude > I imagine a transaction type could be made that established a key-value pair “on” the individual coin. or a hack that utilized unencrypted messages but only accepted the kv pair in the message if sender is eligble to establish the kv pair

– riker > Why not issue a singleton asset per coin and use the asset description or attached message to store the data about the asset?

– josenxt > Well, if we are talking about numbered seats for a small school play that will work but, for the NBA final, for example, that would require the creation of 20,000 different singleton assets for every game…:

– riker > We will need to create 20k unique entities anyway so why not singleton assets?

  • Lior Yaffe in Medium – About Ethereum Plasma…

The battle goes on – Security vs. Speed. For the uninitiated, Plasma is the Ethereum’s scaling proposal – an idea of implementing child chains being worked on, not an actual product like Ardor. Scaling is a huge issue for any blockchain and Lior Yaffe, the co-founder of Jelurida, is very knowledgeable on this topic – and on child chains, naturally. He explained his confusion at how trust can be established when not all the nodes validate a contract – which is what the Plasma proposal for getting a TPS speed boost proclaims. A general truism is this – if it is too good to be true… it is. The backbone of Plasma is some “fraud prevention” algorithms that Lior is dubious about.

Lior wrote:

If I understand correctly, plasma is moving contract execution to the child chains, this means that not every node will execute every contract, but if so how can nodes that did not execute a contract, trust that whoever did execute the contract did not cheat? The Whitepaper refers to fraud proofs many times, but it’s unclear how these fraud proofs would actually work. How can you prove that the eyes of a CryptoKittie just generated on a deeply nested child chain are of the wrong color without actually executing the contract? At some point the fraud proof is mentioned as a transaction by itself, I assume it is submitted to the root chain, but then again how all nodes will validate it without actually running the contract and tracking the latest state of this child chain? And what prevents someone from flooding the network with spam fraud proofs that all nodes will need to validate?

Another weakness seems to be that since not every node is required to execute a contract, who promises that the contract will be executed at all and not just lock the user’s funds? I think this is what the whitepaper refers to as block withholding attack. But this means that users will need to be on constant alert to see if the contract they triggered actually executed which will sometimes become very difficult to tell given that its unknown which node executes which contract on which child chain. Also, I have to admit I don’t like the mass exit idea, the ability of users to move their tokens freely between chains which use different consensus creates endless possibilities for manipulation.

  • Blockchainnews – [INTERVIEW] Ardor Blockchain Developer & Jelurida Managing Director Lior Yaffe

Last week, while in Korea, Lior was interviewed by Blockchain News. Lior gives a brief overview of what Ardor is and what problems it solves.

Transcript:

(BCNewsKorea): Alright. That’s great. And could you tell us a little bit about the Ardor platform and what it does?

(Yaffe): OK. So Ardor is about solving the several limitations of blockchain technology today. One of them is blockchain bloat that every transaction ever submitted to the blockchain has to stay there forever.

In Ardor, we have a solution to remove transactions from the blockchain once they are no longer necessary.

Another solution that Ardor brings is the ability to send transactions without requiring the end users to pay the transaction fees.

And a longer term project we are working on is the ability to remove the need of each node in the blockchain to process all the transactions. This is all achieved using our innovative parent-child chain architecture.

Japanese blogger, Nobi Fujiwara wrote:

If I am not mistaking, most Japanese crypto-lovers are not paying big attention to NXT/Ardor. It’s sad, but probably this is a normal behavior observed in the world too. People just go crazy for big ICOs saying “What’s next? What’s next?” without thinking “Which one is awesome? Which one is real?”

Without any doubt, nobody in Japan knows NXT 10% airdrop when it is cloned. They believe airdrop only happens when a token is hard-forked like Bitcoin Cash. So I am a unique person in Japan and will keep writing about NXT/Ardor in Japanese. Will keep you posted and will check NXTer Magazine updates every week from Tokyo!!

Thank you, Nobi, for holding up the torch for our permissionless blockchains and spreading the word!
