    Weekly Dev Update #131

    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

    Weekly Dev Update #130

    Hey Y’all, This week might seem a little scant for the dev update, but that’s because most of the work we have been doing is still contained to commits on remote or local branches. For example, the Session team is about to publish a refactor of the Session iOS sending and receiving pipeline, and work on the same refactor is progressing quickly on Android. Additionally, the Session desktop team is also about to publish the React refactored desktop application. The Loki Core team is finishing the final parts of Ledger integration, specifically focusing on staking and submitting LNS transac

A note for public RPC node operators upgrading to v0.17.1.6: if you’re using the --rpc-restricted-bind-port option along with --rpc-bind-ip currently you will need to add the new --rpc-restricted-bind-ip arg or else the daemon will bind restricted RPC only to localhost.

  14. Eth 2.0 is live. As of 12am UTC on Tuesday, 1 Dec, the first stage of Ethereum’s evolution into a Proof of Stake (PoS) blockchain has now begun. If PoS sounds familiar, that’s probably because Loki has been full PoS since the Salty Saga hardfork back in October. But what is Proof of Stake, anyway? And why is it such a big deal? Proof of Work, work, work, work, work, work… All blockchains rely on something called a consensus mechanism to confirm transactions as valid and enter them into the blockchain. There are a handful of different consensus mechanisms in use, but the two most co

    Weekly Dev Update #129

    Hey Y’all, This week we worked on fixing up various bugs found in the Lokinet GUI. The Session team continued working on the client refactor and also published a new desktop release which fixed a few bugs. The Loki Core team continued their efforts to integrate Loki into Ledger devices, making the new code compatible with CLSAG transactions.

We’ve talked a lot about the benefits of Proof of Stake for the Loki blockchain, but there’s another huge upside to PoS compared to our old hybrid PoS-PoW consensus mechanism: it’s a lot kinder to the planet. Proof of… Harm? Proof of Work — the system many people know as “crypto mining” — has some very real benefits when it comes to securing blockchains. But it has some nasty downsides, too, and one of the worst is power consumption. To dive into exactly why that is, we need to take a brief look at what Proof of Work actually entails. Fundamentally, “mining” crypto through Pro

  22. Mumble is a fantastic open-source voice chat platform known for its reliability and ease of use. And Lokinet is a cutting-edge onion routing network that offers unparalleled security and anonymity potential. Well what if you could run a Mumble server over Lokinet, combining Mumble’s ease of use with Lokinet’s security and anonymity to create the ultimate secure voice chat service? In this article, we’re going to cover how to do exactly that — with just 15 minutes of your time and $3 a month, you and your organisation can create one of the most secure voice chat platforms possible.
