TiPS (a.k.a. FedoraCoin) is a new state of the art cryptocoin based on the [Tips Fedora meme](http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/tips-fedora). Our objective is to become the tipping currency of the internet. More information is available in the [BitcoinTalk thread](https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=380466.0).
What I currently use for privacy (after almost 2 years of long investing into it)
New England New England 6 States Songs: https://www.reddit.com/newengland/comments/er8wxd/new_england_6_states_songs/ NewEnglandcoin Symbol: NENG NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones. Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt. 1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377 NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs. The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity.

Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software. Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%. NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones.

There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG. We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

AMM + Limit Order, Will OneSwap Replace Traditional Exchange?
When a thing is denied, something new starts at a higher level. The update and iteration of the currency circle takes only a few days. On August 13, Yam, the token of a popular DeFi project, plummeted by 98%, while YFI, another DeFi cryptocurrency, outran the digital currency Bitcoin Gold by value under capital operation. According to their familiarity with DeFi, blockchain investors in 2020 can be divided into two categories. The "New" investors are active in DEXs such as UniSwap and Balancer, striving for hundredfold returns on investment amid fake projects, while the "old" investors stick to mainstream cryptocurrencies and advocate value investment in the three major CEXs. Despite its long history, DEX did not prosper until recently. It has processed transactions of over US$520 million in the past 24 hours, and the trading volume for the past week has exceeded the figure across 2019. But still, many people are stranger to DEX. I.Will DEX shuffle the existing trading market? Upon discovering something new, you can describe it, but never evaluate it superficially. UniSwap occupies 55% of the entire DEX market. Celebrities in the circle enjoy discussing the changes brought by UniSwap on social media and how it will change the existing trading landscape. On August 5, Jay, CEO of OKEX Exchange, publicly stated that "UniSwap can hardly replace the current mainstream exchanges." on Weibo. He also listed two reasons:
With insufficient transaction depth, UniSwap cannot support large transactions;
UniSwap cannot set prices independently, but has to follow the prices set by other exchanges.
So this is what software I currently use for privacy, would like some opinions if possible: Starting with my cellphone, my device is a Google Pixel 3A XL with GrapheneOS flashed, I have the following apps installed: F-Droid and AuroraOSS (as my app stores), NewPipe (youtube client), Vanadium (web browser), Tutanota and K-9 Mail (for e-mails), OsmAnd+ (for maps), Joplin (notes), Open Camera (camera), OpenBoard and Mozc for Android (Keyboard and Japanese Keyboard), Aegis Authenticator, KeePassDX (password manager), LibreTorrent (torrent client), Librera PRO (pdf/epub/mobi reader, I don't own a Kindle nor want to own one so I use my cellphone to read), Tachiyomi (manga reader), Signal (for messaging), Vinyl Music Player, VLC, Simple Gallery Pro and Simple Calendar Pro (I prefer them over stock Graphene options) and I also use Electrum and Samourai (Bitcoin Wallet) and Monerujo (Monero Wallet) I also have OpenVPN (for VPN) and use a private DNS for ad and tracking blocking (provided by my VPN provider) I have 3-4 PCs, will go over every single one of them: my main PC is a desktop PC (that I built myself) that I mainly use for working and other tasks. It runs Artix Linux (basically Arch Linux without systemd), I use UFW as my firewall (denying all incoming and also denying all outgoing only allowing what is useful) and I also use AppArmor Profiles, I disabled IPV6 and SWAP, configured my VPN connection as well on network settings and I currently run OpenVPN on my computer (my VPN provider allows for multi-hop cascade through OpenVPN in which I can create a custom VPN cascade up to four servers, each consecutive hop re-encrypts my traffic and assigns me a new IP address) and I've also set disk encryption on installation (have set in all of my computers) As for software: I use Mozilla Firefox as my web browser (I set it to always be in private mode, unchecked suggestions for browsing history, bookmarks, and open tabs, I've also disabled the Firefox data collection in settings and block dangerous and deceptive content, I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine, I use Firefox Home as my default as my homepage. The rest of my tweaks were done in about:config (using privacytools.io site tweaks + geo.enabled = false, network.cookie.lifetimePolicy = 2 and dom.security.https_only_mode as true which are not listed on the site) and the only addons I use are uBlock Origin on Hard Mode and Decentraleyes), KeePassXC (password manager), VIM (use it as a Text Editor and as an IDE for coding), LibreOffice (for working stuff), GIMP (image editor), VLC, qBitTorrent and Tutanota's Desktop Client and Thunderbird (for e-mails) I also use KVM/QEMU for virtual machines (usually in case I wanna test some distro or use Tails/Whonix) For my gaming PC (also a desktop I've built myself) I run Manjaro KDE on it, the only apps I have in the system are Firefox (same settings as above), OBS and KVM/QEMU (which I use a Win10 virtual machine for games, there are tutorials on YouTube on how to do so if you're interested). I have the same firewall settings as above, using AppArmor as well and I've also disabled IPV6 and SWAP, I run OpenVPN on it as well as my VPN DNS settings on network settings. I also use different mouse and keyboard on both my PCs and never mix them together. My other 2 PCs are both laptops, one is a Acer Aspire Nitro I've bought for work (in case I need to work while in a trip or if I wanna work outside etc), it has the same settings and programs as my main PC but I run Gentoo on it. The other laptop is an old ThinkPad that runs Slackware on it, but I rarely use it and this laptop is most of the times not with me for safety reasons. For some other devices and stuff: I have an Asus RT-AC86U router with OpenWRT flashed on it that I also run OpenVPN config files (this one coming from another provider, I use two VPN providers, on in my PCs and the other in my router), I have a Ledger Nano S as a hardware wallet for both Bitcoin and Monero (most of my cryptocurrency is there, I use hardware wallet for hodling purposes and as my emergency funding) and I have LOTS of USB flash drivers (all of them for Linux Live ISOs purposes), I also have a Nintendo Switch Lite (only gaming console I have, although have not been playing that much on it recently) that I only connect to the internet in case I need to download some updates or play online and after I'm done I immediately disconnect it from the internet. Some other privacy habits I have are: I don't own any smart device like Smart TVs (I've been more than 10 years now without watching TV, doesn't even bother me), Smart Fridges or Dishwashers that connect to your internet, ROOMBAS, Smart Home etc, I keep all my money on crypto (and I have a small amount in gold as well, but I rarely invest on it, all my gold is stored in a manual safe here in my apartment) and I only have like, 10 bucks or so in my back account (as soon as I receive any money I just left the necessary in my account to pay bills and put all the rest on crypto, I try to pay everything on crypto or cash), I RARELY use cloud storage, but if I need to, I go with NextCloud and encrypt all my files with VeraCrypt before uploading it, all my VPN services were paid with Bitcoin (I try to pay everything with crypto as previously said) and I never write directly into any website, I usually write my text on a text editor, copy it and paste it on the website (needless to say that I don't use mainstream social media as well) So, what do you guys think? anything that you would add your recommend me? (before anyone mentions about self-hosting a DNS server using Pi-hole on a Raspberry Pi, I'm actually thinking on doing it in a near future) EDIT: forgot to mention that I don't watch YouTube on PC on youtube site, I mostly watch youtube's videos on invidio.us and only use the youtube site for watching live streams honestly. And I also barely go outside with my smartphone (only if I really need to) and I usually keep it away from my computers etc. EDIT 2: also another thing: I covered all my laptop's webcams with black electrical tape, I have a Logitech C922 Pro webcam for my desktop PCs but rarely use it, and when I need to use it, I unplug it as soon as I'm done with it.
This is just to let potentially interested people know that there is now a new Qubes OS room on matrix which is part of the +cybersec:matrix.org community. The rules for this group are simple, have a (qubes-ish) question, ask a (qubes-ish) question or take it to #cybersec-offtopic. In general the main rule is don't be a D*ck (not duck in case you were wondering, ducks are fine).
Some reasons/examples of why Qubes might be of interest:
It is a privacy security focused system based on the Xen bare-metal hypervisor
It is open source and meant for everyday desktop/laptop daily-driver, not necessarily for servers
The VMs are based on "templates" which reduces attack surface, allows all of your VM programs etc to reside in one template instead of a full VM (only the home dir is persistant when you create a VM since all the programs are loaded from the template), spinning up new VMs is as simple as "new VM"! and for updates only the template needs to be updated and all the VMs based on that template will then be up to date as well.
The compartmentalization allows one to use Split GPG, dm-crypt, ssh, and bitcoin wallets.
It allows for the use of "Disposable VMs", based on any of the above distros that you have setup, that self destruct upon being closed (similar to Tails, though you can run a disposable Tails VM as well!)
And many more reasons. The room welcomes all, if you are a noob come ask a question, if you are a guru (not even necessarily with Qubes but maybe distro or application specific) please come and help add to the knowledge base! One of the main goals here is to have flexible and civil support/discussions related to Qubes.
Hope to see you all there! PS Apologies to the mods if you do not consider this appropriate, I reviewed the rules and think its ok? My reasons for cross posting is that I think Qubes has a very real use case for this subreddit so I thought it would be useful for users in these subreddits and hopefully helpful for Qubes users as well.

The abbreviated name of Tkey Messenger is tkey.me. First of all, TKEY-ME is a secure messenger with p2p audio and video calls, and in the future, a built-in digital wallet.
“Every day we communicate in messengers. We earn money at work. We make purchases and transfers. We are here to combine these processes in one application and make sending funds as easy as sending a message”
The Tkey Messenger as a new ecosystem
Do you think we are here to compete with other messengers? — No, there are a lot of great messengers. We are here to create our ecosystem and the internal market in it. Combine these processes in one application and make sending funds as easy as sending a message. After all, we work in the field of FINTECH, cryptography, and blockchain, why not apply the best practices and knowledge in practice? Therefore, the TKEY Messenger should be considered for a large ecosystem. This is a new payment segment that covers fast communication tools in combination with an internal payment system, a set of exchange practices, blockchain, cryptography, our own experience, and the experience of global companies.
You or your relatives live abroad and you want to send funds quickly, for example, 2600 USD — you just open a chat with your loved one, send a message and 2600 USD in the same second become available on your loved one’s account. https://preview.redd.it/nmz4ienrue651.png?width=697&format=png&auto=webp&s=c3902fc0df1ed2eba425c3f3db3eb8c40bc7a237 It turns out that you can exchange Tkeycoin for USD, EUR, or GBP in a matter of seconds, as well as instantly send them to any place in the world and without hidden fees, the exchange amount is immediately available on the screen.

With the Tkey Messenger access, you always get access to instant Finance, shopping, and the nice things you want to get here and now. In practice, it has turned out that we can often forget the keys to the apartment, rather than the phone, so your finances will always be with you.
The Tkey Messenger version 1.0.0 is the core that opens up new features that we discussed above, payments, and more. Now it is a convenient and stylish messenger with an intuitive design, instant messaging, and secure audio and video communication.
The P2P audio and video calls in a Tkey Messenger
When creating the first version, we focused on high-quality video and audio communication. Now you can easily call by video and be sure that you will get a high-quality video stream, as well as the absence of restrictions from third parties because the connection is carried out on the principle of p2p.
Audio and video calls are made in p2p mode, so there is no recording of calls at all.
The web version of Tkey Messenger is available at → http://web.tkey.me/. The web version has full call functionality, so you can easily call through it, both via video and audio. Video calls are available with the “Share” function, you can easily “share” your screen for the interlocutor and show what is happening on it. This function can be used for presentations or training events.
Screen Sharing is a demonstration and broadcast of the screen. “Share” your screen for the interlocutor and show what is happening on it.
In the web version, you can launch a group video call. In the chat, tap the “handset” icon — the call will be sent to all participants in the chat, so all participants in the group chat can hold a video conference of up to 50 people. The user can turn on the camera and not turn it on, but simply participate in a video conference via audio.
On average, messengers that support the function of video calls in high quality, hold a video stream of no more than 8–10 people.In a Tkey Messenger, group conferences support up to 50 people. Soon-public online broadcasts and streams.
The first version only supports private chats and group chats. Group chats are also completely private, so there is no “Share” function, only the chat participant can invite another participant to the group chat.
Create your thematic chats. Work. Family. Friends. Be the first while we develop. Soon-public channels and chats.
Each participant, when they click the “Exit and delete” button, deletes messages and information from the chat on their side. In group chats, all information is deleted by the last person to leave the group chat. After deleting-all messages, media, photos, and other data that were in this chat are automatically deleted. If all participants leave the group chat, it will be automatically deleted, and all information published in the group chat will also be deleted.
The chat between the two parties
This is a classic private chat between two participants, instant messaging, sending media. The rights of the participants are equal. Any chat participant can delete the entire chat. after deleting all messages, media, photos, and other data that was in this chat, it is automatically deleted.

The Sun Exchange raises $3M for crypto driven solar power in Africa
Read more on WordPress https://ift.tt/2AaMmq6 https://ift.tt/2XLfCfV South Africa based renewable energy startup Sun Exchange has raised $3 million to close its Series A funding round totaling $4 million. The company operates a peer-to-peer, crypto enabled business that allows individuals anywhere in the world to invest in solar infrastructure in Africa. How’s that all work? “You as an individual are selling electricity to a school in South Africa, via a solar panel you bought through the Sun Exchange,” explained Abe Cambridge — the startup’s founder and CEO. “Our platform meters the electricity production of your solar panel. Arranges for the purchasing of that electricity with your chosen energy consumer, collects that money and then returns it to your Sun Exchange wallet.” It costs roughly $5 a panel to get in and transactions occur in South African Rand or Bitcoin. “The reason why we chose Bitcoin is we needed one universal payment system that enables micro transactions down to a millionth of a U.S. cent,” Cambridge told TechCrunch on a call. He co-founded the Cape Town headquartered startup in 2015 to advance renewable energy infrastructure in Africa. “I realized the opportunity for solar was enormous, not just for South Africa, but for the whole of the African continent,” said Cambridge. “What was required was a new mechanism to get Africa solar powered.” Sub-Saharan Africa has a population of roughly 1 billion people across a massive landmass and only about half of that population has access to electricity, according to the International Energy Agency. Recently, Sun Exchange’s main market South Africa — which boasts some of the best infrastructure in the region — has suffered from blackouts and power outages. Image Credits: Sun Exchange Sun Exchange has 17,000 members in 162 countries who have invested in solar power projects for schools, businesses and organizations throughout South Africa, according to company data. The $3 million — which closed Sun Exchange’s $4 million Series A — came from the Africa Renewable Power Fund of London’s ARCH Emerging Markets Partners. With the capital the startup plans to enter new markets. “We’re going to expand into other Sub-Saharan African countries. We’ve got some clear opportunities on our roadmap,” Cambridge said, referencing Nigeria as one of the markets Sun Exchange has researched. There are several well-funded solar energy startups operating in Africa’s top economic and tech hubs, such as Kenya and Nigeria. In East Africa, M-Kopa sells solar hardware kits to households on credit then allows installment payments via mobile phone using M-Pesa mobile money. The venture is is backed by $161 million from investors including Steve Case and Richard Branson. In Nigeria, Rensource shifted from a residential hardware model to building solar-powered micro utilities for large markets and other commercial structures. Nigeria’s Rensource raises $20M to power African markets by solar Sun Exchange operates as an asset free model and operates differently than companies that install or manufacture solar panels. “We’re completely supplier agnostic. We are approached by solar installers who operate on the African continent. And then we partner with the best ones,” said Cambridge — who presented the startup’s model at TechCrunch Startup Battlefield in Berlin in 2017. “We’re the marketplace that connects together the user of the solar panel to the owner of the solar panel to the installer of the solar panel.” Abe Cambridge, Image Credits: TechCrunch Sun Exchange generates revenues by earning margins on sales of solar panels and fees on purchases and kilowatt hours generated, according to Cambridge. In addition to expanding in Africa, the startup looks to expand in the medium to long-term to Latin America and Southeast Asia. “Those are also places that would really benefit from from solar energy, from the speed in which it could be deployed and the environmental improvements that going solar leads to,” said Cambridge.

Update (Nov. 15, 22:42 UTC):Alibaba Group has denied any partnership with Lolli. Lolli, an affiliate retail startup that gives online shoppers bitcoin instead of regular cash-back perks, just announced its first Asian partnership with Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba. Lolli’s in-browser app allows users to shop through merchants’ websites as they normally would, but earn small bitcoin rewards delivered to the in-browser wallet. This announcement comes on Singles Day, the Nov. 11 Chinese shopping holiday comparable to the U.S.’s Black Friday. Alibaba Group’s online Singles Day sales have reportedly generated more than $23 billion so far this year. However, Lolli’s head of communications, Aubrey Strobel, told CoinDesk that Lolli perks will only be available to purchases made in the U.S. For Chinese-Americans, foreign students or travelers, this new option could add additional perks if they participate in online holiday sales, but residents in China will be unable to participate.
Reportedly, multiple iPhone users have come forward on social media complaining that the Facebook app secretly activates their smartphone's camera in the background while they scroll through their Facebook feeds or looking at the photos on the social network. However, at this moment, it's not clear if it's just an UI bug where Facebook app incorrectly but only accesses the camera interface, or if it also records or uploads something, which, if proven right, would be the most disastrous moment in Facebook's history.
Ledger Vault, the custody arm of hardware wallet manufacturer Ledger, has procured a crime insurance policy developed with broker and risk advisory firm Marsh and insurance company Arch Insurance Limited. According to an announcement on Nov. 14, the Ledger Vault platform now provides its users a customized crime insurance program for cryptocurrencies for up to $150 million. The program applies to third-party theft of the master seed and private keys, secure transmissions of the master seed fragments, and insider Ledger employee theft caused by collusion.
Bitcoin (BTC) is being championed as the solution to a new payment crisis affecting the adult entertainment website Pornhub. In a blog post on Nov. 14, Pornhub revealed that payment processor PayPal had abruptly stopped servicing its models. Previously, models throughout the world received payouts via PayPal, which has not publicly stated why it cut them out of its platform. “We are all devastated by PayPal's decision to stop payouts to over a hundred thousand performers who rely on them for their livelihoods,” the blog post reads. Pornhub is now using direct funds transfer alternatives, which models must set up themselves. The website began a deal with cryptocurrency project Verge (XVG) last year, while users can purchase products with various cryptocurrencies via Pornhub’s partnership with merchant gateway PumaPay.
Bitcoin is looking south after back-to-back weekly losses and multiple rejections at key price resistance. Importantly, BTC has also failed for three straight weeks to close (Sunday, UTC) above the 3.5-month trendline sloping downwards from the 2019 high of $13,880. Acceptance above that hurdle would have meant a revival of the bull market set in motion by a solid break above $5,000 in early April. The inability to pass that level (currently around $9,335) has weakened the bullish case put forward by the high-volume rise from $7,300 to $10,300 on Oct. 25–26. Markets usually test dip demand after multiple rejections at key resistance and bitcoin is already feeling the pull of gravity. At press time, the cryptocurrency is trading at $8,680 on Bitstamp, representing a 1 percent drop on a 24-hour basis. Losses could be extended further with the 200-day moving average support now breached. The barometer of long-term market trend is currently located at $9,236. Other technical indicators have also turned bearish over the weekend.

Blockchain is really become the next technology revolution in term of security, transparency and privacy however it lacks of mass adoption currently. Even if Bitcoin is starting to be well-known in non-crypto world, many end users claims flaws to use cryptocurrency yet (i.e. scalability, complexity) With the era of smart contracts, decentralized systems can leverage user-centric uses case for global uses reducing the cost and improving customer engagement by given back the control of their data thanks to the Blockchain decentralization, transparency and security. However, global and daily usage of Blockchain is not massively well integrated in our society, due to the lack of simplification for user and some flaws in the customer experience (wallets, fees, key management). A good knowledge of computing and cryptography is often required to avoid any kind of problem while using the Blockchain. For this reason, UNIRIS is challenging the market by providing a high security, scalability, geo secure data sharding and identity/key management for a simple usage coupled to a revolutionary biometric identification and prevent secrets losses and thefts. Offering a truly decentralized and limitless network based on a new consensus ARCH (Atomic Rotating Commitment Heuristic) supporting 1 million transaction/sec.

Has anyone successfully received a callback notification using the electrum notify command? I have Electrum installed locally and have done some testing with testnet faucets. I can send and receive bitcoin to my testnet wallet using both the faucet website and Electrum itself. I would like to get notified of address changes. I've attempted to receive notifications using the following command:
but I have never received a callback. I am running nginx locally and have confirmed that the callback URL is reachable from the local machine. I've also tried http://127.0.0.1/callback. I'm running Arch Linux (btw) and using Electrum 3.3.5. Is there anything i'm missing or obvious mistakes i'm making? Edit: I'm now running Electrum 3.3.6. Problem still persists

Prior to co-founding Kadena with Will Martino in 2016 and becoming the company's president, Stuart worked at JPMorgan Chase in the new products division, where he led and developed JPMorgan’s main blockchain product, Juno. Stuart also wrote the algorithmic trading scripts for JPMorgan, which informed his creation of Kadena’s simple, purpose-built smart contract language, Pact. The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views ofCointelegraph. IBM is a major player in the world of enterprise blockchain, offering a blockchain platform based on Hyperledger Fabric and launching blockchain pilots with large companies like Walmart and Aetna. As one of many contributors (including recently announced Microsoft and Salesforce) to the nonprofit, the open source Hyperledger Foundation, IBM has made a huge investment in promoting Fabric as a private or “permissioned” blockchain, implying that it offers features in common with well-known blockchains like Bitcoin or Ethereum, while somehow removing any aspects that might be “unsuitable for enterprise.” However, the technology IBM is actually selling and calling “blockchain” — i.e., Hyperledger Fabric — sacrifices the most important features of a true blockchain, whether permissioned or public. Fabric’s architecture is far more complex than any blockchain platform while also being less secure against tampering and attacks. You would think that a “private” blockchain would at least offer scalability and performance, but Fabric fails here as well. Simply put, pilots built on Fabric will face a complex and insecure deployment that won’t be able to scale with their businesses.
Blockchain options on the market
When I worked at JPMorgan Chase in 2016, I led an emerging technology group that researched and vetted blockchains for the bank’s potential use and strategic investment. This involved in-depth analyses of early versions of Hyperledger, Axoni, Symbiont, Ripple and Ethereum. It was clear back then that the blockchain options on the market were technologically inadequate for real enterprise use cases. Unfortunately, we see these same core problems today with Hyperledger Fabric. The concerns we raised included: How does a blockchain’s smart contract language safely and simply express complex business rules? How are public-key signatures guaranteed to be valid? Can the system scale to additional participants (nodes) without drastically slowing down performance? And, for a future-thinking enterprise, can you interoperate with other public and private blockchains easily? Using these questions as a framework, I believe that IBM’s system fundamentally lacks the required elements of a blockchain, with misleading performance numbers and questionable long-term business viability. While my colleagues and I don’t see the numbers game (transactions per second, node count) as the only factor in blockchain adoption, we do think it’s important to educate people on what a blockchain is and is not. This education will hopefully help everyone better understand the landscape of the emerging technology of blockchain.
What blockchain is and isn’t
In order to really understand where IBM’s blockchain stands, we need to look at the very definition of a blockchain itself. A blockchain is, at its core, a decentralized immutable ledger of events or transactions in which truth is enforced by a consensus mechanism. In public blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum, this consensus is achieved through Proof of Work, or “mining.” In permissioned blockchain, consensus can be achieved through participants supplying cryptographic signatures to vote on what gets written. Either way, no central authority arbitrates what is true. IBM’s definition of blockchain captures the distributed and immutable elements of blockchain but conveniently leaves out decentralized consensus –– that’s because Hyperledger Fabric doesn’t require a true consensus mechanism at all. Instead, it suggests using an “ordering service” called Kafka. The problem is that, without enforced, democratized, cryptographically secure voting between participants, you can’t prove that somebody hasn’t tampered with the ledger. A fault-tolerant consensus is a hallmark feature of a blockchain, and without it, IBM’s “blockchain” is little more than a time-stamped list of entries. Fabric’s architecture exposes numerous vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malicious coordination. For instance, it introduces public-key cryptography "inside the network" with validator signatures, which provide the main security assurance but originate after an externally signed transaction has been submitted. This fundamentally invalidates the proven security model of Bitcoin and other real blockchains, in which the provenance of any transaction is assured only by an external user’s public key signature, and cannot be intermediated in any way by the system. In sharp contrast, the only signatures that matter on Fabric for consensus are those of the validator, while the user signatures disappear into an arbitrary dataset replicated through the network. Fabric researchers play fast and loose with performance numbers because, fundamentally, Fabric’s architecture cannot scale while maintaining peak performance. Fabric uses a multichain environment (called "channels") to provide confidentiality between participants. Providing confidentiality is an important feature for private “enterprise” blockchain and necessarily involves trade-offs and complexity, but a multichain solution is a bad choice for scalability. It also makes for a woefully complex deployment, with nonuniform nodes, unreliable smart contracts and proliferating potential points of failure. Thus, performance numbers for a standard Fabric deployment are unimpressive to start, degrade rapidly as nodes get added and are single-channel: If you want to transact with the whole network across multiple channels, the numbers aren’t even relevant. Even so, when looking at individual channels, this system struggles to get above 800 transactions per second (TPS), but even a 16-channel configuration can barely get above 1,500 TPS, with latencies reaching well into the 10-20 second range at the upper throughputs. Recent efforts to speed up Fabric have resulted in claims of reaching up to 20,000 TPS, but the changes made to the architecture by researchers move so far from blockchain as to be unrecognizable: Endorsers no longer act as validators and Kafka is enshrined as the only possible ordering service (Fabric, in theory, can accept a true blockchain consensus, but it would be so slow that nobody would ever use it in production). Finally, these are still single-channel numbers, meaning the whole notion of a blockchain as a shared source of truth is invalidated.
Why smart contracts and hybrid options matter
Not ready for the future
Increasingly, the most sophisticated observers of blockchain ecosystems are realizing that private and public blockchains will not exist in a vacuum but instead will want to work together: A private network will want to make a token available to consumers on a public blockchain, and a public blockchain’s decentralized application will want to store sensitive information on a private blockchain. Unfortunately, users of IBM Fabric (as well as R3 Corda) could find themselves "cut off" from public blockchains by the sheer incompatibility of the architecture — but also by the inability of their smart contract language to execute seamlessly in both a public and private environment. As IBM dominates a lot of the enterprise blockchain press cycle with its announcements of partnerships, it is important to look under the hood at what the technology can actually do. IBM’s “blockchain” technology falls short in numerous ways — including security, performance and reliability — and as such, provides an inferior solution for organizations looking to use blockchain to achieve meaningful business improvements. To truly realize the value of blockchain, sophisticated customers will look to challengers offering better tools, better blockchains, and a better vision for the future and how we utilize technology.
##UPDATE## Step 8 - Option 2, has some bugs in the final build process. i haven't had time to work them out yet! This guide will take you through building and running a headless x42 Full Node! The OS I am using here is Ubuntu 18.04, this guide picks up from a complete/fresh ubuntu install. This is meant to setup a staking node and so this guide will run you through building, configuring and setting up staking. It will not cover sending transactions or anything else. The things we are going to do:
Step 1 - Install .net core
Step 2 - Download The x42 Node Source & Compile It
Step 3 - Setting The x42 Node Up To Run On Boot
Step 4 - Setup A New Wallet
Step 5 - Configure The x42 Daemon
Step 6 - Get Address
Step 7 - Check Balance
Step 8 - Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node
Step 8 - [Option 1 - Use Installer] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node
Step 8 - [Option 2 - Build/Compile UI Only] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node # BROKEN#
cd ~/ git clone https://github.com/x42protocol/X42-FullNode.git # “cd” into the source folder cd X42-FullNode/src/
Now .net core uses NuGet for package management, before we compile, we need to pull down all of the required packages.. its as simple as running (this will take a couple of minutes) inside of “X42-FullNode/src/”:
now we are ready to compile the source, execute (inside of “X42-FullNode/src/”):
dotnet build --configuration Release
ignore the yellow warnings, this is just the rosyln compiler having a grumble.. if you get red ones then something went wrong! The “--configuration Release” will strip out all debug symbols and slim things down.. only a little, this optional parameter is not mandatory. Once this is done everything is built/compiled, you can run the daemon directly from the repository, this can be done by going to:
cd ~/X42-FullNode/src/x42.x42D/bin/Release/netcoreapp2.1 dotnet x42.x42D.dll
this will kick off the node, however if you exit SSH at this time it will kill the process! however I always recommend copying out the binaries to a separate folder. This can be done with the following:
now we have everything we need to run the node outside the git repository! What we need to do now is run the node and have it create the default x42.conf file.. so
cd ~/x42node dotnet x42.x42D.dll
feel free to hit “CTRL + C” to exit the application after a couple of seconds, by then the folders/files would have been created at the following path:
Step 3 - Setting The x42 Node Up To Run on Boot
Now we are going to create a service file so our x42 node automatically starts when the system is rebooted. THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT BELOW.. CHANGE THE ##USER## to the username your currently using as these files are within your home directory! We need to drop to root for this..
sudo -i cat < /etc/systemd/system/x42node.service [Unit] Description=x42 Node [Service] WorkingDirectory=/home/##USER##/x42node ExecStart=/usbin/dotnet /home/##USER##/x42node/x42.x42D.dll Restart=always # Restart service after 10 seconds if the dotnet service crashes: RestartSec=10 SyslogIdentifier=x42node User=##USER## Environment=ASPNETCORE_ENVIRONMENT=Development [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target EOF
To enable the service, run the following (as the root user):
systemctl enable x42node.service
BOOM.. the node isn’t running yet.. but next time the system restarts it will automatically run! now lets exit out of root!
We can now start the node up and begin downloading blocks, by running the following command:
sudo systemctl start x42node.service
if you want to check its loaded and see some of the output, you can run:
sudo systemctl status x42node.service
an example of the output:
$ sudo systemctl status x42node.service ● x42node.service - x42 Node Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/x42node.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since Thu 2019-01-24 15:47:55 UTC; 14s ago Main PID: 5456 (dotnet) Tasks: 23 (limit: 1112) CGroup: /system.slice/x42node.service └─5456 /usbin/dotnet /home/darthnoodle/x42node/x42.x42D.dll Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: Batch Size: 0 Mb (0 headers) Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: Cache Size: 0/50 MB Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: =======Mempool======= Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: MempoolSize: 0 DynamicSize: 0 kb OrphanSize: 0 Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: info: Stratis.Bitcoin.Connection.ConnectionManagerBehavior Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: Peer '[::ffff:188.8.131.52]:52342' connected (outbound), agent 'x42:1.2.13 (70012)', height 213920 Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: info: Stratis.Bitcoin.Connection.ConnectionManagerBehavior Jan 24 15:48:09 x42staking x42node: Peer '[::ffff:184.108.40.206]:52342' offline, reason: 'Receiving cancelled.'. All node screen output can be found in the /valog/syslog file.
Step 4 - Setup a New Wallet
With the Node running, we now need to setup and/or restore a wallet! Everything will be performed through the API’s, however by default these API’s are listening on localhost (127.0.0.1), if you are connecting in remotely then this would be a problem since you cant hit that IP. The solution, SSH TUNNEL! Execute the following command on your local system:
ssh -L 42220:localhost:42220 @
This binds the local port (on your system) with 127.0.0.1:42220 on the remote system, once you have executed the command you can type the following address in your laptop/desktop’s web browser and be able to access the API’s:
It should be noted that the password and mnemonic are is the most important parts of this request where the “password” will encrypt the wallet and Is required to unlock it.
Hit the “Try it out” button
input the necessary data
Insert the mnemonic
Put a password & passphrase
“Name” is what your wallet will be called
It should look something like the following: https://preview.redd.it/958ttfbxb8d21.jpg?width=603&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ce48336436ea4b469b5e87513da802de0bf444ee Hit “Execute”, the “Loading” sign may spin for a few minutes while the wallet is created… once the wallet has been created the “Response Body” will return the mnemonic you have just used.. we now have a wallet!! HOWEVER IT IS NOT LOADED INTO THE NODE JUST YET! This is where we will now jump back out and to configure the node to automatically load the wallet and automatically start staking when it first loads. AGAIN BACKUP YOUR MNEMONIC AND PASSWORD, MAKE SURE THEY ARE ENCRYPTED AND STORED SOMEWHERE SAFE!
Step 5 - Configure The x42 Daemon
Now we are going to modify the x42.conf file in order to automatically load our wallet and start staking 😊 First things first, lets stop our node by running the following command:
sudo systemctl stop x42node.service
CD to the following folder and view its contents:
~/.x42node/x42/x42Main ls -lah
within that folder there should be 2 files you are interested in:
-rw-r--r-- 1 darthnoodle darthnoodle 18K Jan 28 16:01 TestWallet.wallet.json -rw-rw-r-- 1 darthnoodle darthnoodle 3.1K Jan 24 15:25 x42.conf
So TestWallet.wallet.json is our physical wallet that will be loaded, but for right now we want to modify the x42.conf file.. fire up your favourite text editor (if you use VI you’re a masochist)..
The area we are interested in is the following:
####Miner Settings#### #Enable POW mining. #mine=0 #Enable POS. #stake=0 #The address to use for mining (empty string to select an address from the wallet). #mineaddress= #The wallet name to use when staking. #walletname= #Password to unlock the wallet. #walletpassword= #Maximum block size (in bytes) for the miner to generate. #blockmaxsize=1000000 #Maximum block weight (in weight units) for the miner to generate. #blockmaxweight=1000000 #Enable splitting coins when staking. #enablecoinstakesplitting=1 #Minimum size of the coins considered for staking, in satoshis. #minimumstakingcoinvalue=10000000 #Targeted minimum value of staking coins after splitting, in satoshis. #minimumsplitcoinvalue=10000000000
Uncomment (remove the #) of the following lines and change their value:
stake=1 (changed to 1) walletname=TestWallet (changed to our Wallet Name) walletpassword=password123 (changed to the wallet password)
save the file and exit back to the command prompt, now we shall restart the node with the following command:
sudo systemctl status x42node.service
now the wallet is automatically loaded and ready for action! YES I KNOW YOU HAVE PUT YOUR PASSWORD IN CLEARTEXT, THIS IS WHERE YOU SHOULD HARDEN YOUR BOX. IF THEY CAN GET TO THE POINT WHERE THEY CAN READ YOUR CONF FILE THEY CAN JUST GRAB YOUR WALLET AND BRUTEFORCE THE PASSWORD. You can check its loaded by going back to the API and executing the following command:
Or execute the following command on the NODE:
curl -X GET "http://127.0.0.1:42220/Dashboard" -H "accept: application/json"
both will produce the same output, if you scroll to the bottom you should see something like this:
The UI utilises a combination of technologies, however the important part is the code attempts to access the x42 Node API on 127.0.0.1:42220. So you have 2 options here:
Download the Wallet Installers
Compile The UI Yourselves
Pick the option that best suits you given the pros/cons below: Option 1 - Pro's/Cons Pro's
If you use the installer, its quick and easy.
This also installs an x42 node on your system which runs when the UI loads.
If you dont setup an SSH tunnel before running the wallet the local node will bind to the port and the tunnel wont work.. you will be connecting to the local wallet!!
Option 2 - Pro's/Cons Pro's
You only run the UI, the x42 node is not installed
you dont have a superfluous node running, downloading blocks on your local system
Have to download dependencies and manually compile the code
Pre-Requirement - Needed For Both Options!! As previously mentioned, the UI attempts to access the API's on 127.0.0.1:42220, however our node isnt running on our local system. IN ORDER TO GET IT WORKING YOU NEED TO HAVE AN SSH TUNNEL, THIS TUNNEL NEEDS TO REMAIN ACTIVE WHENEVER YOU WANT TO ACCESS THE WALLET. this can be done by executing the following command:
ssh -L 42220:localhost:42220 @
Step 8 - [Option 1 - Use Installer] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node
Step 8 - [Option 2 - Build/Compile UI Only] Connect The UI Wallet To A Headless Node ###BROKEN
THIS IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS, THE ELECTRON BUILD DOESNT WANT TO COMPILE BECAUSE SOME CODE IS MANGLED SOMEWHERE!! Ok, this is the fun bit! .. we need to install the following dependencies. these instructions are written for a Windows system but it should be easy enough to perform the same on a *NIX system. Install Dependencies In order to build the wallet UI, you need to install the following components:
when this is done, we have fixed most of the package vulnerabilities 😊 We also get a complaint about the typescript library being too new for the version of angular in use, so run the following command to install the additional dependency:
