  1. The Haven team is thrilled to announce we will launch the first private stablecoin, xUSD, on Haven’s mainnet on July 20, 2020. Below are some additional details about the launch of xUSD that we’d like to share: The launch will require a hard fork of Haven’s chain to implement the xUSD exchange code. We will announce the exact block height for this fork as we get closer to July 20th. All pools and exchanges will be required to update their nodes and wallets to incorporate the new xUSD code. We are in communication with all known exchanges and pools and will be happy to assist in preparation
  2. Lokinet is an incredibly powerful and versatile onion router. Lokinet allows for uses such as real-time onion-routed voice calls, videogame server hosting, and other applications that would be completely infeasible on existing onion routers due to their higher latency and inability to route UDP traffic. By design, Lokinet offers extremely low latency compared to many other anonymous browsing solutions, and because it operates on the network layer, it can route either TCP or UDP traffic, meaning it can handle both normal browsing and real-time data streams like audio calls — without any special
  3. Why? Because it’s fun to do bad things. For those of you who paid attention during the last roundup, we mentioned that some discussions were happening at the old sandwich cart about a few potential changes around the chat. Turns out we were discussing whether or not the time was right to give a shot at letting market talkers have their own channel in the server. If you go to the chat right now, there is a room called turtle-traders. If you are surprised, so are we. Keep reading though.. In the beginning… When the TRTL discord first launched, it was during crypto December and what seemed like

    Weekly Dev Update #105

    Hey Y’all, This week we continued work on the Session Desktop refactor, getting closer to finishing the refactorisation of both the sending and receiving pipelines. Lokinet continued working closer to finishing Exit Nodes with a local DNS cache being added to aid in faster lookups. The Loki Core team finished the first pull request for Pulse, which will be one of many in the coming months. Loki Core Static build overhaul to improve how we produce static binaries for Linux/windows/mac (and to produce them automatically with every PR) – https://github.com/loki-project/lok
  6. This week we saw lots of new faces in the chat and many new users asking all the great questions new users ask, and as a bonus, diff has gone back to a sensible level. All in all, a good week!

    Weekly Dev Update #104

    Hey Y’all, This week the Session team enabled three-hop onion requests on all platforms. This means that all one-on-one and closed group messages now travel through 3 Service Nodes before they reach their destination. The Lokinet team continued working on exit node support, and discussions have begun on how the user experience will look when choosing an exit node. The Loki Core team finished a huge PR which merges all relevant commits from upstream Monero so we’re back in line with them, instead of being 1000+ commits behind.

  17. Loki is many things: a project, a foundation, an idea. But first and foremost, Loki is a blockchain. The Loki blockchain is the backbone of the Loki Project’s powerful and versatile suite of privacy tools. Every privacy feature, tool, and solution we’re building is linked to or based on the Loki blockchain in some way. In this article, we’re breaking down the ways that the Loki blockchain supports our efforts to help you #StayPrivate.

    Weekly Dev Update #103

    Hey Y’all, Last week we pushed out an update to Session Android which has vastly improved Session’s stability, and we’re continuing to work towards doing the same for Session Desktop. We have also merged 3-hop onion requests into the internal testing versions of iOS and Android Session, which is very exciting! The Lokinet team finished their first SNApp-based Exit Nodes, which started being tested on Saturday night, and they are fast enough to stream 1080p Youtube! The Loki Core team also finished most of the upstream merge, which means we will soon be back in line with Monero’s latest c

  20. As described in the first deep dive post on May 15, Haven’s team spent the last several months redesigning Haven’s codebase. As a result, we have modified Monero’s commitment structure to implement the use of “colored coins” and enable a more secure and reliable xUSD exchange process. The team began testing this new structure in private several weeks ago. During testing, we identified one key bug resulting from the modifications to Monero commitments: some onshore transactions failed due to the new “proof of value” verification process. There are a maximum of 13 significant figures (digits)
  21. As I reflected on the wild ride that the last 2-and-a-bit years have been, I thought it might be fun to take a look back at all of the things Loki has achieved since its inception in late 2017. It’s easy to look at the road ahead and think that things have barely begun, but there’s been plenty of landmarks along the way to celebrate. Let’s take a look at the list of firsts, notable milestones, and epic moments we’ve been able to share with Loki. Achievement Get: Private Sale Mar 2018 In March of 2018, the Loki founding team grinded away for months trying to gather the funds to kick

    Weekly Dev Update #102

    Hey Y’all, This week we continued our work refactoring Session to improve multi-device, message sending reliability, and friend request logic. Our focus has been on Android, which is nearly finished, and Desktop, which is just getting started. The Lokinet team continued working on performance improvements, exit node support, and internode performance testing. Finally, the Loki Core team continued its work on merging in relevant upstream commits from Monero.
