    Weekly Dev Update #128

    Hey Y’all, This week the Lokinet team continued working on fixes for the Mac release, which had some unresolved issues in the installer/uninstaller. The Loki Core team worked on the 8.1.4 release, which fixes a few issues exchanges were encountering and adds some new features to the wallet which are likely to be used in the Chainflip Service Node airdrop. Capping things off, the Session team began a large refactorisation effort which we will be talking about publicly in the coming weeks. Loki Core Remove unused wallet address parameter https://github.com/loki-project/loki-co

  3. Lokinet exit nodes have been on the bucket list for Lokinet since launch — and this week, exits have entered the building. That’s right, this is not a drill, Lokinet exit node functionality is making its way to a Lokinet client near you. If you’ve been following Lokinet for a while, you’ll know just how big of a deal this is. But if you’re new to the Lokinet landscape, or just want to brush up on the basics of onion routing, you’ve come to the right place. Lokinet exit nodes: How they work, what they do, and what they mean for you In a nutshell, Lokinet exit nodes allow you to onio
  4. When the Salty Saga hardfork landed, we made the decision to set aside 6 LOKI per block for the first six months following the hardfork as a fund to incentivise liquidity for Chainflip and wLOKI. With the recent announcement that Chainflip will be forming its own blockchain, this is no longer necessary, because Chainflip can provide its own incentives. With that in mind, the Loki Foundation has resolved to burn this liquidity provision. This will be the largest public burn in Loki’s history. While that is the most important part of this announcement, in the interests of transparency

    Weekly Dev Update #127

    Hey Y’all, This week we released exit node support for Lokinet, with a new Windows and Linux GUI client. On the Session side of things, the team continued its work re-factoring the sending and receiving pipelines on iOS. Meanwhile, the Loki core team focused on some required patches for the 8.1.3 release, as well as some new features such as signing ASCII strings using your wallet keys. Loki Core Add ability to sign ASCII strings with CLI wallet private keys https://github.com/loki-project/loki-core/pull/1350 Fix RPC wallet default bind IP address https://github.com/loki-projec
  6. You might not have heard about it yet — but Lokinet just got a massive update. The release of Lokinet proof of soon (yes, that’s what it’s called) brings two major upgrades to Lokinet’s usability and functionality: exit node functionality and LNS integration. Where we’re going, we need exit nodes What’s an exit node, you ask? Well, when you used older versions of Lokinet, you were only surfing Lokinet, not the internet. The things that make Lokinet what it is — onion encryption and Service Nodes — didn’t play nice with the regular ol’ world wide web. While everything functioned properl
  7. Introduction Since we started in 2017, Loki has grown exponentially. After beginning as an ambitious Monero fork, our scope has dramatically expanded into a full privacy suite: a private messaging app, an onion routing network, a private PoS cryptocurrency, and a foundation dedicated to building and supporting free, accessible, decentralised, open-source privacy tools. We have proven ourselves to be a community-first, transparent, development-led team. Always have been, always will be. We work for our community, and we’re always adapting to make sure we’re bringing value to the projec

    Weekly Dev Update #126

    Hey Y’all, This week the Session team worked primarily on refactorisation. On iOS, this refactorisation occurred in the sending and receiving pipelines, and on desktop it occurred as part of our ongoing effort to refactor elements of the application into React. The Loki Core team published the iOS and Android wallets, and fixed a bug that was causing transactions to temporarily display as if they had failed. The Lokinet team worked on DPI scaling for small screen sizes, which is the last thing to be resolved before the exit node GUI is ready for release. Loki Core iOS build

    Weekly Dev Update #125

    Hey Y’all, This week the Loki core team continued working on getting the iOS and Android wallets to work properly with Salty Saga. Meanwhile, the Session team worked on various UI fixes and investigated a few issues we were having with Session open groups and the Session file server. The Lokinet team followed up on some internal testing feedback and fixed a number of windows GUI bugs.

    Weekly Dev Update #124

    Hey Y’all, This week the core team continued working on updating the Android and iOS wallets to make them compatible with Loki 8.x.x. The Session team integrated the onion requests v2 framework — which cuts down on the size of messages and increases the maximum attachment size. On the other side of the pond, the Lokinet team implemented some more aggressive router profiling and path rebuilding changes which should increase client stability. Loki Core Replace boost filesystem, cleanup epee, further wallet API cleanups https://github.com/loki-project/loki-core/pull/1332 Fix key ima
  20. Dear community, today, we think that it’s necessary to take the time and take a step back to write about the latest development in the X-Cash ecosystem. We would like to preface this article by addressing some concerns that arose from recent discussions within the community. Some members of the community have pointed out that it seems that most of X-Cash development is focused on DPOPS at the moment, and because it’s taking longer than planned it feels like the rest of the project is at a stop. While this is true to some extent, we are moving forward in the background on several other proje

    TRTL v2

    Have a seat, pour a cup of whatever drink you celebrate with, and think about where you left those old TRTL wallet keys. Whether you like what we say next or not, you’re going to need them, soon.. My friends, it is time for us to say goodbye. Today we hit block 3,000,000. We upgraded our network and our proof of work algorithm for the last time. By block 4,000,000 or in about 1 year from today, the TurtleCoin network as we know it will begin on a path of its own destruction. A short time after block 5 million, the chain will be dead, and completely gone, unable to produce more blocks. Don’t
