  1. Dear community, In a context where we are getting closer to DPOPS and with growing interests for X-Cash, we are announcing that X-Network, the primary contributor of X-Cash development, will perform a buy-back of 823,298,491 XCASH in a 3 months period starting Wednesday, September 16th, 2020. The coins will be bought directly on the current exchanges where X-Cash is listed. These coins will be added back to X-Network’s inventory, currently standing at 9,176,701,509.156 XCASH (verifiable using the reserve proof on the segregated funds’ tracker). These funds will be locked under a new reserve

  3. Over the last month, a number of third-parties have asked us to create a resilient, long-term fee structure for xUSD transactions on the Haven network. We’ve agreed to do so and the reason is clear: in order for xUSD to be used regularly by millions of people, on the largest platforms in the world, we must implement a solution that ensures fees paid by users are flexible and transparent. So, the first announcement we’re making today during Haven’s multi-week “Announcement Season” is the Haven 2.0 Fee Structure. These fees are designed to thwart economic attacks and manipulation attempts, whi

    Weekly Dev Update #117

    Hey Y’all, This week was a big development week for Session — we released UI fixes and light mode! On the Lokinet side, we worked on LNS support and continued testing exit nodes. The Loki Core team continued working on alternate block support for Pulse. Loki Core Compilation fixes https://github.com/loki-project/loki-core/pull/1248 Integrate libsodium-provided privkey https://github.com/loki-project/loki-core/pull/1246 Restore public access to RPC for some commands https://github.com/loki-project/loki-core/pull/1245 RPC doc updates for last reward/state SN variables h
  5. Lately, there has been some misconception about the scheduled protocol upgrade policy as well as the original intent of the policy. The goal of this post is to provide further clarity to stakeholders. Approximately five years ago, a somewhat formal policy was introduced to provide clarity to the ecosystem with respect to protocol upgrades. The policy essentially outlined that consensus changes would be introduced every six months on a set schedule (whilst allowing for potential reduction in frequency in case of substantial ecosystem growth). Consistently, Monero has performed protocol upgrad

    Weekly Dev Update #116

    Hey Y’all, This week, the Session team worked on lots of little quality-of-life bug fixes. We’re also implementing a light mode, for those users who prefer to be blinded by their screen. The Lokinet team finished on the command line implementation for exit node tools and moved onto integrating exit node selection into the Lokinet GUI. The Loki Core team worked on Pulse code cleanup and searched for Pulse bugs on the devnet. We also welcomed a new developer, Kyle, who began working on bettering the Loki electron wallet user experience. Loki Core Add Loki SN Key management too

    Weekly Dev Update #115

    Hey Y’all, Pulse blocks started flowing last week as the Loki core team fired up the Pulse devnet, over the next couple of weeks the core team will use the devnet to test the resilience of consensus with Pulse. The Lokinet team made more progress on the Lokinet GUI integration of exits, and internally we have started testing the reliability of exits. Meanwhile, the Session team fixed a number of issues with Sessions being out of sync, restoration from seed, and a number of other nasty crashes. Loki Core Re-do block verification to support Pulse round timeouts https://github.com
  11. Contributing researchers to the Monero Research Lab are pleased to announce that the Triptych zero-knowledge proving system for confidential transactions has been reviewed and accepted to the ESORICS CBT 2020 workshop for presentation and publication. Triptych uses a zero-knowledge proving system to construct a particular type of linkable ring signature that can be used in confidential transaction protocols. Unlike currently-deployed methods like CLSAG, Triptych proofs grow very slowly (logarithmically) as the size of the transaction anonymity set increases. Triptych transactions also benefi

  13. DPOPS Beta Update — Phase 2 Dear Community, It is with great excitement that we are sharing with you this update about the DPOPS Beta progress. During the last year, we have developed an innovative consensus protocol called Delegated-Proof-of-Private-Stake. This protocol is the first DPOS that allows the use of private stakes for staking. While we coded most of the features from scratch, we have chosen to rely on Monero’s core technology for the obfuscation of the transactions. In this article, we are providing you with an update on what has been developed and fixed since the start of the B

  17. The next network upgrade will take place on 17th October 2020. Network upgrades are technically hard forks and require all the participants to the Monero network to upgrade their software (@wallet and @daemon). The new software will be released one month before the network upgrade: 17th September. This network upgrade will introduce ground changing features like the new ring signature construction CLSAG, which will drastically reduce the transaction size by ~25% and improve verification performance by ~20%. Basically, every transaction will be lighter and faster. The complete list of changes

    Weekly Dev Update #114

    Hey Y’all, Last week, we merged the final PRs for Pulse before the imminent devnet launch, which will allow users and developers to test (and probably break!) Pulse in a safe environment. The Lokinet team focused on integrating exits into the Lokinet control panel and exit node integration with Windows and Mac. The Session team finished sender keys for Android and made a number of small quality of life bugfixes.

  20. The last few months have generated an explosion of discussion in the crypto world about governance tokens and so-called ‘yield farming’. There’s lots of chatter around incentive structures for the variety of actors in the field. In particular, the DeFi community has settled on a rather unusual consensus about the balance between arbitrageurs, liquidity and infrastructure providers, and the viability of governance tokens going into the future. I’m going to explore the long-term viability of governance tokens and how modern monetary theory is precipitating into the ideas we’re now seeing in

    Weekly Dev Update #113

    Hey Y’all, Last week we pushed a number of Session updates which first disabled, then removed, multi-device support. These updates were important to ensure the stability of the application. The Lokinet team began investigating TCP tunneling, which may make mobile integration easier in the long term. The Loki Core team continued to work on Pulse and various quality-of-life improvements for stakers. Loki Core Add docker compose configuration https://github.com/loki-project/loki-core/pull/1216 (thanks to community dev javabudd) Various Service Node contribution fixes https:/
