  1. Dear Community, we are taking the time to write today, to give a first half of the year review and a look ahead to the second half of the year. In the first half of the year there was a lot of internal stuff to do. The team restructuring was started and completed. You will be able to see the team members and their roles once we release the new website. There was a lot of coding to be worked on, and unfortunately their were no new releases, but most projects that the team were working on are about 80%+ done at this time. There also was the process of restructuring some of the servers. This i

  4. /blog/assets/2022-04-20-network-upgrade-july-2022/upgrades.png The next network upgrade will take place on 16th July, 2022 (block 2,668,888). Network upgrades are technically hard-forks and require all participants in the Monero network to update their software. The new software (v0.18 "Fluorine Fermi") will be released one month before the network upgrade, on the ~16th of June. This network upgrade will introduce important new features like: A ring-size increase from 11 to 16 – the largest ever absolute increase in the base anonymity set (read: plausible deniability, or base privacy)
  5. /blog/assets/2022-04-01-this-year-in-monero/8years.png As a way to celebrate and show the growth that has happened for Monero across the past year on this, the 8th anniversary of the Monero project, I wanted to take a snapshot of statistics and social media posts to highlight this growth. This is by no means an exhaustive list of ways in which Monero grew, and some of the most important growth came in increased acceptance and adoption of Monero for donations and payments: Merchants accepting Monero for payment FOSS Projects and Pro-Privacy Organizations accepting Monero for donation

In Q1 their was a lot of internal work being done. Below is the following sections of what the team has worked on in Q1. Team Restructuring The process of team restructuring is just about complete.

This idea was proposed by Guilhem, and everyone is on the same page, there are no i

  9. Seraphis is a 'transaction protocol abstraction' that I have been working on (WIP draft paper available here). As an 'abstraction', Seraphis defines rules about how you can design a real (privacy-focused) transaction protocol without specifying concrete algorithms. For example, RingCT is another protocol abstraction (more or less), and there are different 'real' versions corresponding to signature schemes MLSAG and CLSAG. Seraphis is a candidate model for Monero's next transaction protocol. Privacy-focused transaction protocols have two core structural rules. How are amounts represented
  10. Dear Community, Today we would like to explain how to setup your node for the testnet. This is about the same process as setting up a node for the mainnet, but we will be using the “dpops-test” branch. You can follow any of the official tutorials for more in depth coverage of setting up a server, delegate or voting, registering etc, but this article will give the basics for full testnet participation. You can view the delegates website for the testnet at http://dpops-test-delegates.xcash.foundation Step 1Once you have a server ready, use the “dpops-test” branch autoinstaller to setup the serve
  11. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 Dear Monero users and participants of the Monero ecosystem, Some vulnerabilities have been identified in the implementation of Monero multisignature wallets.
