  3. I recently came across a bounty in the TRTL Discord for an article about TurtleCoin. The requirements were loose, it was mainly just a length requirement, so I figured I’d brew up some coffee and give it a shot. Thanks to Keda666 for reminding me to post this. Starting a coin network is easy. Taking care of one, helping it grow, keeping it healthy, giving it good guidance — those are the hard parts. My name is RockSteady, and TurtleCoin is my problem child. With an introduction like that, you might be thinking that I regret creating TurtleCoin or that it is a mistake in the sense that it wa

    Weekly Dev Update #133

    Hey y’all, This week has been the first week back after the Christmas holidays, so our dev updates will be back to their usual length from here on out. This week, the Session team worked to finish the final Session protocol implementation, specifically focusing on closed groups. The Lokinet team submitted their TUN refactor code which is expected to improve performance, especially on Windows. The Loki Core team worked on various Oxen rebranding projects, mostly focusing on the wallets. Loki Core Add API for staked amount on pending transactions https://github.com/loki-pr

  11. Towards the end of 2020, we announced the biggest change to the Loki Project since launch: Loki is rebranding to become Oxen. There have been plenty of questions about what the rebrand entails, when everything will be happening, and what our users need to do (spoiler alert: Loki users and $LOKI holders don’t need to do anything whatsoever). To minimise uncertainty and confusion, today we’re announcing our roadmap and timeline for rolling out the Oxen rebrand. For an overview of the reasons behind the rebrand, head over to our rebrand announcement blog. What’s happening today (6 Jan 2

    Weekly Dev Update #132

    Hey y’all, Today is the first day back for most of the Loki team after our Christmas break, so there’s a bit less in this dev update than usual. Rest assured, the Loki team is getting straight back onto the development train, working on essential Session features like reimplementing multi-device and building out Session Protocol support for closed groups. The Lokinet team is working on some Windows optimizations which should increase download speeds through exit nodes. Loki Core P2P network changes to reduce possibility of DoS attacks https://github.com/loki-project/loki-core

    Bulletproofs+ in Monero

    /blog/assets/bulletproofs+/bulletproofs+.png Summary Code is now available for Bulletproofs+, a zero-knowledge proving system that can be used in the Monero protocol in place of the existing Bulletproofs zero-knowledge proving system. The new construction would make transactions smaller, faster for wallets to generate, and faster for network participants to verify. While the code is functional and includes tests for the underlying algorithms, it should be reviewed by third-party auditors if chosen for deployment in a future Monero network upgrade. The code is permissively licensed in the ho

Dear community, Today, and after a year-long (but needed) testing period, we are glad to announce that the X-Cash public blockchain is ready to move from Proof of Work consensus algorithm to our new and customized: Delegated Proof of Private Stake consensus algorithm. 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 trans

    Hey Y’all, This week marks the start of the holiday season for most of the Loki team, so expect to see a little bit less content in the dev updates until the start of the new year. However, work is still ongoing, with a focus on Session and Loki Core. On the Session front, we released a new update on all platforms with new encryption protocol changes which you can read about here. On the Loki Core side, we finished Ledger support (which will be submitted to Ledger tomorrow), and we also worked on a number of quality of life fixes for wallet and service node users. Loki Core
