    X-Cash Website Update

    Hello Community, 2022 is a year of immense changes in the world, and though some unfortunately have a sense of dread about the future, a few see an undeniable flame of hope. The hope radiates and gives clarity to what the shadows conceal thus allowing the eyes to see. What is under the shadows is for those who witness the flames’ radiance. Before this article gets buried by our heavy release schedule, thanks. Thanks for being an early supporter and witness to X-Cash’s maturation– though we are still at the beginning and have a ton of untapped potential to realize. Our new website release is a
  6. 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

  9. /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)
  10. /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. Both Paris Founders are still very much a part of this team, but they are taking a step back to concentrate on Flodesk growth. This idea was proposed by Guilhem, and everyone is on the same page, there are no i

  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. -----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. These vulnerabilities do not affect the theory supporting multisigs, but affect the current wallet code implementing them. Initially disclosed and discussed via the vulnerability response process*, the discussion has been enlarged to other key developers and MRL contributors. We agreed together that a public announcement had to be made. These vulnerabilities affect (i) multisignature wal

    DPOPS Testnet Schedule

    Dear Community, Today I wanted to update you on the schedule for the DPOPS testnet. It will be crucial to have a public testnet up as we get closer to working on the next protocol. It will also provide us a sandbox to test updates. I wanted to share this info at this time, since usually their are many sales on servers and VPS during this black Friday week. SchedulePart 1 — Snapshot This will be when the snapshot takes place at block 880000. This is estimated to happen around Dec 8th. Part 2 — Voting opens This will be on December 20th. Between the snapshot and this date I will need to setup th

What is DPoPS?The DPoPS (standing for Delegated-Proof-of-Private Stake) is a brand new and unique Delegate-Proof-of-Stake consensus integrated into X-Cash, an open-source fork of Monero which has since the beginning of the project brought new innovation to the privacy coin space (notably FlexPrivacy, public & private transactions o
  22. September 2021 GeneralThe incredible commitment of the XCASH Community made it possible that the XCASH QuickSwap Liquidity Program almost reached the 1M TVL goal (even during this short market breakdown)! With $2.1+ million of dQUICK deposits, over 3.5b XCASH and 950 QUICK in the pool, X-CASH is now stable in the TOP 10 list of Dragon Syrup tokens! Now the 1M++ TVL goal is just a matter of time!

  23. We are happy to announce that Monero P2Pool is live on the Monero network and binaries have been released. What is Monero P2Pool? Monero P2Pool is a peer-to-peer Monero mining pool developed from scratch by SChernykh (also known as sech1). P2Pool combines the advantages of pool and solo mining; you still fully control your Monero node and what it mines, but you get frequent payouts like on a regular pool. P2Pool as a concept was first developed for the Bitcoin blockchain but was never fully realized due to certain limitations, mainly because it had a problem with orphaned blocks which is so
  24. When constructing a new transaction, a Monero wallet references a past output a user received in a prior transaction, and uses it as an input to the new transaction. Today, the wallet mixes this output with a set of 10 decoy outputs selected from other people's transactions from across the blockchain (ring signature). Thus, an observer cannot tell which among the 11 total outputs is the real one a user spends in a transaction, obfuscating the link from the user's new transaction to their prior transaction. The decoy selection algorithm specifically handles the selection process for choosing wh
  25. Dear community, We are very excited to share the launch of XCASH on the Polygon Network with a liquidity mining program in partnership with Quickswap. The current APY is 1406.28% [Last update 09/09/21 12:26 UTC+0]. In this article, we present what is the X-Cash project, its purpose, and what we have built in the past 3 years. If you are looking to farm XCASH you can directly switch to the tutorial section below. What is X-CashX-Cash is a hybrid public-private coin with several features developed and added since 2018. X-Cash also includes an innovative consensus algorithm called Delegated-Proof
