The next XVG? Microcap 100x potential actually supported by fundamentals!

What’s up team? I have a hot one for you. XVG returned 12 million percent in 2017 and this one reminds me a lot of it. Here’s why:
Mimblewimble is like Blu-Ray compared to CD-ROM in terms of its ability to compress data on a blockchain. The current BTC chain is 277gb and its capacity is limited because every time you spend a coin, each node needs to validate its history back to when it was mined (this is how double spending is prevented). Mimblewimble is different - all transactions in a block are aggregated and netted out in one giant CoinJoin, and only the current spending needs to be verified. This means that dramatically more transactions can fit into a smaller space, increasing throughput and lowering fees while still retaining the full proof of work game theory of Bitcoin. These blockchains are small enough to run a full node on a cheap smartphone, which enhances the decentralization and censorship resistance of the network.
The biggest benefit, though, is that all transactions are private - the blockchain doesn’t reveal amounts or addresses except to the actual wallet owner. Unlike earlier decoy-based approaches that bloat the chain and can still be data mined (XMR), Mimblewimble leaves no trace in the blockchain, instead storing only the present state of coin ownership.
The first two Mimblewimble coins, Grin and Beam, launched to great fanfare in 2019, quickly reaching over $100m in market cap (since settled down to $22m and $26m respectively). They are good projects but grin has infinite supply and huge never-decreasing emission, and Beam is a corporate moneygrab whose founding investors are counting on you buying for their ROI.
ZEC is valued at $568m today, despite the facts that only 1% of transactions are actually shielded, it has a trusted setup, and generating a confidential transaction takes ~60 seconds on a powerful PC. XMR is a great project but it’s valued at $1.2b (so no 100x) and it uses CryptoNote, which is 2014 tech that relies on a decoy-based approach that could be vulnerable to more powerful computers in the future. Mimblewimble is just a better way to approach privacy because there is simply no data recorded in the blockchain for companies to surveil.
Privacy is not just for darknet markets, porn, money launderers and terrorists. In many countries it’s dangerous to be wealthy, and there are all kinds of problems with having your spending data be out there publicly and permanently for all to see. Namely, companies like Amazon are patenting approaches to identify people with their crypto addresses, “for law enforcement” but also so that, just like credit cards, your spending data can be used to target ads. (A) Coinbase is selling user data to the DEA, IRS, FBI, Secret Service, and who knows who else? (B) What about insurance companies raising your premiums or canceling your policy because they see you buying (legal) cannabis? If your business operates using transparent cryptocurrency, competitors can data mine your customer and supply chain data, and employees can see how much everyone else gets paid. I could go on, but the idea of “I have nothing to hide, so what do I care about privacy?” will increasingly ring hollow as people realize that this money printing will have to be paid by massive tax increases AND that those taxes will be directly debited from their “Central Bank Digital Currency” wallets.
100% privacy for all transactions also eliminates one HUGE problem that people aren’t aware of yet, but they will be: fungibility. Fungibility means that each coin is indistinguishable from any other, just like paper cash. Why is this important? Because of the ever-expanding reach of AML/KYC/KYT (Anti-Money Laundering / Know Your Customer / Know Your Transaction) as regulators cramp down on crypto and banks take over, increasingly coins become “tainted” in various ways. For example, if you withdraw coins to a mixing service like Wasabi or Samourai, you may find your account blocked. (C) The next obvious step is that if you receive coins that these chainalysis services don’t like for whatever reason, you will be completely innocent yet forced to prove that you didn’t know that the coins you bought were up to no good in a past life. 3 days ago, $100k of USDC was frozen. (D) Even smaller coins like LTC now have this problem, because “Chinese Drug Kingpins” used them. (E) I believe that censorable money that can be blocked/frozen isn’t really “your money”.
Epic Cash is a 100% volunteer community project (like XVG and XMR) that had a fair launch in September last year with no ICO and no premine. There are very few projects like this, and it’s a key ingredient in Verge’s success (still at $110m market cap today despite being down 97% since the bubble peak) and why it’s still around. It has a small but super passionate community of “Freemen” who are united by a belief in the sound money economics of Bitcoin Standard emission (21m supply limit and ever-decreasing inflation) and the importance of privacy.
I am super bullish on this coin for the following reasons:
Because it doesn’t have a huge marketing budget in a sea of VC-funded shitcoins, it is as-yet undiscovered, which is why it’s so cheap. There are only 4 Mimblewimble-based currencies on the market: MWC at $162m, BEAM at $26m, GRIN at $22m, and EPIC at $0.4m. This is not financial advice and as always, do your own research, but I’ve been buying this gem for months and will continue to.
This one ticks all the boxes for me, the only real problem is that it’s hard to buy much without causing a huge green candle. Alt season is coming, and coins like this are how your neighbor Chad got his Lambo back in 2017. For 2021, McLaren is a better choice and be sure to pay cash so that it doesn’t get repossessed like Chad!

EtherDelta is broken. Info & FAQ

TLDR

Etherdelta has been abandoned and the website is broken.

Info

EtherDelta website status

ForkDelta

Support

There is no official EtherDelta support or Admin. Anyone pretending to be one is scamming you.

Never give anyone your private key or MetaMask seed words.

Chat:

In any support chat, do not respond to private or direct messages (PM or DM), these people will be trying to scam you.

Reddit:

Both the EtherDelta and ForkDelta subreddit have low activity, but usually someone is willing to help out.

FAQ

How do I access a custom token on EtherDelta / ForkDelta?

There are 2 options: 1. Use the token drop down at the top left of the page. At the very bottom you will see the option 'other'. 2. Enter the token address in the url. https://etherdelta.com/#0x0d8775f648430679a709e98d2b0cb6250d2887ef-ETH https://forkdelta.app/#!/trade/0x0d8775f648430679a709e98d2b0cb6250d2887ef-ETH In some cases the page might reset to the default pair, use option 1.

How do I withdraw?

The withdraw functionality on etherdelta.com should still work if you are not using MetaMask. Otherwise the easiest option is using ForkDelta.app.
You can also manually interact with the smart contract. - Using the write contract option on etherscan. - Using contract interaction on MyEtherWallet or MyCrypto.

Should I cancel my orders?

You do not need to cancel if you plan to withdraw your tokens.
All your tokens show up in your balances, whether they are in an active order or not. If an order is not 100% filled, all the remaining tokens can be withdrawn at any time. After withdrawing all your tokens, the order becomes invalid because there is nothing left to use in a trade.
Warning: If re-deposit these tokens, the order might become active again. You should cancel unwanted orders if you plan to continue to trade on ForkDelta/EtherDelta.

Where do I find my private key?

Hopefully you've got it saved offline somewhere, if not, you might be able to extract it from the exact same browser that you used etherdelta on.
There are 4 possible websites that you might have used over the years:
  1. etherdelta.github.io
  2. etherdelta.com
  3. forkdelta.github.io
  4. forkdelta.app
Numbers 2-4 currently have a UI that allows you to export your private key. If you want to check number 1 or the UI is broken, you can extract the key from the LocalStorage of your browser. Your key can only be stored in the browser that you used with EtherDelta.

Extracting from LocalStorage

Your data will have the following format, your private key is the "pk" value. Key: EtherDelta Value: {"accounts":[{"addr":"0x....","pk":"....."]}
Firefox: settings -> web developer -> storage inspector -> local storage -> Chrome / Brave: settings -> more tools -> Developer tools -> Application (tab at the top) -> local storage ->

My withdrawal keeps failing / reverted

ERC20 tokens can have their settings changed by their creators. Some tokens get Paused, Locked or Disabled. For example for a swap to a new smart contract or a different mainnet. A token that is locked cannot be withdrawn, and the transaction will always fail.
Contact the token creator with your issue, nobody else can move those tokens for you.
Any swapped tokens that were dropped directly to the EtherDelta contract are lost forever, you cannot withdraw those.

My transaction is pending for .. minutes/hours/days

Try to change the gas price before making a withdraw! The default gas price setting for EtherDelta/ForkDelta is likely to be too low. If you do not use MetaMask, check ethgasstation for gas prices. Metamask will override the default settings and give you a good estimate.
If you use MetaMask, you can use the UI in MetaMask to cancel or speedup a transacion sent by MetaMask.
If you use a private key, check this MyCrypto Guide or this old guide (and the comments). A google search might also give you a more modern solution.

Alternative withdrawal methods.

I suggest using ForkDelta, because that is the easiest method. If ForkDelta somehow doesn't work, you can try the alternatives below.

Withdraw using Etherscan

This requires MetaMask. (For private keys, import them in MetaMask or use the MEW method below) -View the smart contract on etherscan and go to the contract tab.

Withdraw using MEW (MyEtherWallet)

These are some old guides for EtherDelta, they might provide you with some info. First time users Pending transaction Smart contract overview How to deposit, withdraw, and transfer How fees work How to trade

What is Masternode? Why Is XinFin Masternode a Good Alternative to Proof of Work

Taking into account current market conditions more and more crypto enthusiasts are gaining interest in being rewarded for holding tokens. Ain’s it’s beneficial than patiently waiting for the moon? Traditional Proof-of-Work (PoW) mining is not in the best shape. Therefore miners are not an exception as it’s getting harder to stay profitable. Plus, PoW mining isn’t friendly for mass adoption and requires huge network consumption. Another important fact is that you do not have to be a trading guru to start gaining additional income. These are just a few reasons why more buzz have been around the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and Masternodes (MN). We have to admit that they are eye-catching nowadays, and considered as the future of cryptocurrency.
Now you might be asking yourself “What is the Masternode?” Let’s get down to business!
Well, in a nutshell, masternode is a server on a decentralized network. Some blockchain protocols provide for the creation of particular nodes that perform additional work on the verification of transactions and bring their owners regular profits. Such nodes are called masternodes. They regularly get rewards for completing such actions. Builds a curiosity? Move on!
Why Do You Need to Launch a XinFin Masternode Now, Until it’s Not Too Late? XinFin Masternode is a good option for passive income, and there are several reasons why it might be the right time to start running a XinFin masternode or a few at once.
First of all, XinFin masternodes are not so famous for now. However, this is likely to change soon. The same applies to rewards, which will decrease every year. Secondly, the XinFin XDC coin is cheaper, which means that the entry threshold at the moment is much lower than before. It won’t cost you a fortune. Finally, it’s better to hold and get rewards than merely hope for prices to go up.
Although according to the CoinGecko 2018 report the numbers of both masternodes and masternode coins increased significantly during the past year, there is still a substantial drop in overall value. The total market cap for masternodes coins dropped from over $12 billion in January 2018 to just over $500 million by 2018’s end — a double-digit drop quarter-on-quarter. Nevertheless, it’s just the beginning of the XinFin. Remember, the early bird gets the worm!
What is the Average XinFin Masternode ROI? Take in mind, that ROI is a relative term in the context of cryptocurrency space. We got used to the practice that ROI in crypto space is a bit another term, unlike the traditional markets where XinFin ROI measures per year around 10%+ as per the past few months’ data.
How to Setup Masternode: It’s very easy to setup XinFin Masternode compare to setting us crypto mining facility for Bitcoin and ethereum.
XinFin vs bitcoin mining: XinFin Masternode needs the lowest hardware configuration to run masternode while bitcoin needs the high configuration of hardware to run bitcoin mining and this also results in high depreciation every month with high risk. While XinFin Masternode runs with a tiny VPS hosting plan with the lowest cost of operation.
Before the launch of XinFin main-net i used to do bitcoin and ethereum mining And now shifted to XinFin network after the launch of main-net

Amazing AMA from Douglas Horn

AMA Recap telos Foundation with Crypto Hunters
On August 02, 2020 at 12:00 WIB Indonesia Time / August 01 2020 at 10:00 PM ( PST ) in the Crypto Hunter Telegram Group, AMA TELOS started with Mr.Douglas as guest speaker and Gus Fahlev from Crypto Hunters as moderator. When campaigning, 10 lucky AMA participants when asking questions on Google forms and AMA sessions will get a total TELOS ( TLOS ) prize of $100.
The following is a summary of AMA questions and answers announced by the moderator and
Segment 1
Question 1: Can you explain us, what is Telos?
Answer: Telos is a blockchain platform for smart contracts. It is a low latency—a new block every half second, high capacity—currently in the top 2 blockchains in transactions per day, according to Blocktivity.info, and no transaction fee blockchain. Telos also has many unique features that allow developers to make better, dapps, such as our Telos Decide governance engine.
Question 2: what ecosystem is used by telos?
Answer: Telos is its own Layer-1 blockchain, not a token on another blockchain. The technology behind Telos is EOSIO, the same technology used by EOS and WAX, for example.
Question 3: I see that Telos uses EOSIO platform, what are the very significant advantages that distinguish Telos from other projects?
Answer: Telos uses the EOSIO platform but we have built several additional tools. Some of these add more security and resiliency to the blockchain, such as testing block producers and removing non-performant ones, but most are related to development. Telos provides attractive development tools that aren’t available elsewhere. Telos Decide is a governance platform that lets any group create self-governance tools easily. These run on Telos at very little cost and can provide all kinds of voting, elections, initiative ballots, committee management and funds allocation. Telos also has Telos EVM, an Ethereum virtual machine that can run Ethereum Solidity contracts at hundreds of times the speed of Ethereum and with no costs. Another Telos technology that is deploying soon is dStor, which is a decentralized cloud storage system associated with Telos so that dapps can store files controlled by blockchain contracts.
Question 4: At what stage is Teloa Road Map now? what are the latest updates currently being realized?
Answer: Telos launched its mainnet in December 2018 and has so far produced over 100,000,000 blocks without ever stopping or rolling back the chain. This is likely a record for a public blockchain. We have an ongoing group Telos Core Developers who build and maintain the code and are paid by our Telos Works funding system that is voted by the Telos token holders. Telos is a leader in blockchain governance and regularly amends its governance rules based on smart contract powered voting called Telos Amend. You can see the current Telos governance rules as stored live on the blockchain at tbnoa.org.
The most recent updates were adding new features to Telos Decide to make it more powerful, implementing EOSIO v2.0 which increased the capacity of Telos about 8-10 times what it previously was, and implementing Telos EVM on our Testnet.
We are currently working on better interfaces for Telos Decide voting, and building more infrastructure around Telos EVM so that it is ready to deploy on our mainnet.
Question 5: Is telos currently available on an exchange? and is it ready to be traded?
Answer: Telos has been trading on exchanges for over a year. The largest exchanges are Probit, CoinTiger, CoinLim, and P2PB2B. Other exchanges include Newdex and Alcor. We expect to be listed on larger exchanges in the near future.
Question 6: Now is the time when defi tokens begin to develop, can telos be categorized as a defi project? and what strategies for this year and in the years to come prepared by telos?
Answer: Telos is a smart contract platform, but it already has many DeFi tools built for it including REX staking rewards with a current yield of ~19% APR, smart contract controlled token swaps (like Bancor) with no counterparty called Telos Swaps, a common liquidity pool/order book shared by multiple DEXs to improve liquidity called EvolutionDEX. Wrapped BTC, ETH, XRP, EOS, and other tokens can be brought to Telos and exchanged or used via smart contracts through Transledger. We have more DeFi tools coming all the time including two new offerings in the next few weeks that will be the first of their kind.
Question 7: Governance is an important topic in blockchain and Telos is considered a leader in this area. Why is that?
Answer: Telos is among the top blockchain projects in terms of how it empowers its users to guide the growth of the chain—along the likes of Tezos or new DeFi tokens that offer governance coins. Telos users continuously elect the validating nodes, called Block Producers, that operate the network based on a set of governance documents such as the Telos Blockchain Network Operating Agreement (TBNOA). These are all stored entirely on-chain (viewable at tbnoa.org) and can be modified by smart contract through blockchain voting using Telos Amend. You can see examples of this at https://chainspector.io/governance/ratify-proposals Telos also has a robust user-voted funding mechanism called Telos Works that has funded many projects and is one of the more successful blockchain incubators around. Voting for all of these can be done in a number of ways including block explorers, wallets like Sqrl (desktop) and Telos Wallet (mobile), telos.net and Chainspector (https://chainspector.io/governance/telos-works). But Telos goes beyond any other chain-level governance by making all of these features and more available to any dapp on Telos through Telos Decide governance engine, making it easy for any dapp or DAO to add robust, highly customized voting.
Segment 2 from google form
Question 1: Defi projects are now trending whether telos will also go to Defi projects, to increase investors or the community?
Answer: Yes, we have several DeFi tools on Telos that can work together:
Telos Swaps is an automated, zero-counterparty token swapping smart contract where you can exchange any Telos tokens you may want at any time.
Telos has DEXs and uses a common order book called EvolutionDEX that's available to any DEX so that a buy order on one can be matched against a sell order on another. This greatly increases liquidity for traders.
We have staking rewards though the Resource EXchange (REX) with rewards currently at about 19% APR.
We also have "wrapped" BTC, ETH, and other tokens that can be traded on Telos or used by its smart contracts at half-second transaction times with no transaction fees. This makes Telos a Bitcoin or Ethereum second layer or state channel that's much faster even than Lightning Network and has no fees once the BTC has been brought to Telos.
Question 2: Telos aim is to build a new global economy could you explain how whole ecosystem works? There are already many centralized competitors so what is decentralization aspect in telos?
Answer: Telos is one of the most decentralized blockchain's in the world. It is operated by 51 validators (block producers) who validate blocks in any month. These are voted for on an ongoing basis by Telos account holders.
Telos is also economically decentralized with no large whales like Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP or EOS because Telos never performed an ICO and limited the size of genesis accounts to 40,000 TLOS max.
Telos is also geographically decentralized with users and block producers on every continent but Antarctica and in numerous countries. The is a large amount in North America and Western Europe, but also in Asia, Australia, and large contingents in Latin America and Africa. Telos has had a Block Producer in Indonesia since the beginning and some dapps on Telos are based in Indonesia as well, like SEEDS, for example.
Question 3: Most investors focus only on the token price in the short term instead of the real value of the project.
Can #TELOS tell me the benefits for investors holding #TELOS the long term?
Answer: That's true about crypto speculators and traders, certainly. Traders are usually looking for coins with good positive momentuum that they hope will continue. But these are often pump and dumps where a few people get in early, pump the price, and then get out at the expense of new investors. That's very unfortunate. Telos isn't like this. One reason is that there aren't large whales who can easily manipulate the price.
Telos seems to be greatly undervalued compared to its peers. Telos has capacity like EOS and well above XRP, XML, Tron, Ethereum. But its value is miniscule relative to these. Telos is a leader in blockchain governance like Tezos but its marketcap is tiny in comparison. Telos onboarded 100,000 new accounts last month and is appearing in the leading crypto press every week with new dapps or developments. So there's some disconnect between the value of Telos and the price. In my experience, these tend to equalize once more people learn about a project.
Question 4: Eos Problems and How Telos Will Solve Them?
Answer: Telos originally set out to solve problems with EOS. It was successful in this and now Telos stands on it's own and our roadmap is more about empowering users. In short, these are some of the EOS problems we already solved:
RAM speculation - Telos had a plan to reduce RAM speculation through a published guidance price that has been extremely successful. The RAM price is guided by market forces but has remained within 10% of the guidance price since launch.
CPU resources - Telos implemented the Telos Resource Improved Management Plan many months ago which was a 7-point approach to making EIDOS-type resource mining unprofitable on Telos. It has largely been successful and Telos has not experienced any resource shortages.
Exchange Collusion/Voting - Telos governance does not permit Exchanges to vote with user tokens. This prevent voting situations seen on EOS or STEEM.
Block Producer collusion - Telos has minimum requirements for block producers and do not allow anyone to own more than one block producer. Those who are found doing so (there have been about 3 cases so far) have been removed and sanctioned in accordance with the rules of the TBNOA.
Question 5: What ecosystems do telos use? and why telos prefers to use EOS network over BEP2 or ERC20? what layer is used telos, can you please explain?
Answer: uses the EOSIO protocol because it is the fastest and most powerful in the world and it also receives the fastest upgrades and ongoing development compared to other blockchain technologies. EOS and WAX also use the EOSIO protocol but they are completely different chains.
Telos is a Layer 1 protocol, meaning that it is its own blockchain that other dapps and smart contracts deploy upon.
One thing that happens when a blockchain like Telos has much, much higher speed and capacity than others like Bitcoin or Ethereum is that Telos can actually run those other blockchains better on its own platform than they can natively. For example, a number of tokens can come in to Telos as wrapped tokens. BTC, ETH, XRP are all current examples of tokens that can be on Telos as wrapped tokens. Once there, these can all be moved around with half-second transaction times and no transaction fees, so they are a better second layer for Bitcoin or Ethereum than Lightning Network or Loom.
Telos can also emulate other chains, which we are doing using Telos EVM which emulates the Ethereum Virtual Machine at about 300 times faster and with no gas fees or congestion compared to Ethereum native deployment. Telos can run Ethereum (Solidity) smart contracts without any changes required. Telos EVM is already deployed on the Telos Testnet and will move to our mainnet soon. So anyone who wants to run ERC-20 tokens on Telos can do so easily and they will be faster and with much less cost than running the same contract on Ethereum.
Segment 3 free asking
Question: I am happy to see new things created by the Telos team. Like What concept did you build in 2020 to make Telos superior?
Answer: Currently, I think Telos Decide is the most unique and powerful feature we have built. There are all kinds of organizations that need to vote. Apartment buildings, school boards, unions, tribes, youth sports leagues, city councils. Voting is hard, time consuming, and expensive for many. Telos Decide makes voting easy, convenient, and transparent. That will be a major improvement and disrupt old style voting. It also goes for buisnesses and corporate governance. Even before COVID it was important, but now people can't really gather in one place so fraud-proof voting is very important. No one has the tools that Telos has. And if they try to copy us, well, we are already way out ahead working on the next features.
Question: If we look about partnerships, Telos has many partnership ! so what's the importance of that partnership for Telos? And How will you protect the value of Telos to your partners or investors ??
Answer: Many of the partnerships are dapps that have decided to deploy on Telos and receive some level of help from the TCD or Telos Foundation to do so. Once a dapp deploys on a chain, it really is like a long term partnership.
Many dapps will become block producers as well and join in the governance of Telos. I suspect that in a few years, most block producers will be the large dapps on the platform with just a few remaining like my company GoodBlock. Of course, we will have our own apps out as well so I guess we'll be developers too.
Telos is very fiscally responsible for investors. We spend little. There has not been any actual inflation on the chain in almost a year. (The token supply has remained unchanged at about 355M TLOS) we are actively working with dapps to bring more to Telos and exchanges and other services like fiat on- and off-ramps to increase value for users.
Question: In challenging crypto market condition any project is really difficult to survive and we are witnessing that there are many platforms . What is telos project plan for surviving in this long blockchain marathon? In this plan, what motivates long term investors and believers?
Answer: True.
While we currently have a low token price, Telos as a DPOS chain can be maintained and grow without a massive army of miners and still maintain BFT.
But the risk is really not whether Telos can continue. Already there are enough dapps that if the block producers went away somehow (not gonna happen) the dapps would just run the chain themselves.
But with 100,000 new users last month and new dapps all the time, we are looking to join the top 5 dapp platforms on DappRadar soon. Survival as a project is not in question.
One of the big reasons is that we never did any ICO and Telos is not a company. So regulatory risks aren't there and there's no company to go bankrupt or fail. We have already developed a bootstrapped system to pay block producers and core developers. So we aren't like a company that will run out of runway sometime.
Question: Could you explain what is DSTOR? What will it contribute to your ecosystem?
Answer: dStor is a decentralized cloud storage system that will have the performance of AWS or Azure with much lower costs and true decentralization. It's based on a highly modified version of IPFS that we have applied for patents for our implementation. It means that dapps will be able to store data like files, images, sound, etc. in a decentralized way.
Question: Trust and security is very important in any business , what makes investors , customer and users safe secure when working with TELOS??
Answer: Telos is decentralized in a way that's more like bitcoin than other blockchains (but without the whales who can manipulate price). There was never any single company that started Telos, so there's no company whose CEO could make decisions for the network. There are numerous block producers who decide on any operational issue that isn't clearly described in the TBNOA governance documents. And to get to an action, 15 of the 21 currently active BPs need to sign a multisig transaction. So that's a high threshold. But also, the TBNOA speaks to a large number of issues and so the BPs can't just make up their own rules.
Since there are really no whales, no one can vote in any kind of change or bring in their own BPs with their votes. This is also very different from other chains where there are whales. Telos is not located in any one country, so our rules can't be driven by one nation's politics.
All in all, this level of decentralization sets Telos apart from almost any blockchain project in existence. People don't have to trust Telos because the system is designed to make trust unnecessary.

Bluzelle AMA with CEO Pavel Bains on Community Telegram

Today August 11th 2020 , Pavel Bains (CEO of Bluzelle) connected with the community in the Bluzelle telegram group to answer all questions relating to #staking on #BluzelleNet. Following the postponing of the Mainnet launch due to the Cosmos chain upgrade, questions have arised concerning the Mainnet launch, Staking economics and the plans for the project.
It was to be in two parts. First was an interview session with Darshan. Then the next session was for community members to ask their individual questions.
Pavel gave insightful and satisfying answers to the questions and even shared his thoughts on the current DeFi boom.
Below are the questions and answers of the interview session by Darshan.
Darshan: Hello Pavel, glad to have you in this AMA session. Hope you’re doing well?
Pavel Bains: Doing great.
Darshan : Good to know!
So let’s start with our First Question!
A lot of community members were happy by looking at the project development but then they know about the delay in soft-mainnet, could you tell us what is the main reason?
Pavel Bains : As most people are aware, we built our blockchain (BluzelleNet) with Tendermint (by Cosmos). Because we are using the latest version, they wanted to make sure everything is secure. So they asked us to take a bit of extra time as they were updating some things on their end.
We want to make sure we test it well beforehand.
I think most of the crypto community are good with this as we aren’t the only ones who had to push mainnet because of these reasons.
Darshan : Thanks for the detailed explanation.
Q2. How would staking in Bluzelle be like? When would the Bluzelle community members be able to stake their BLZ?
Pavel Bains : We will have our staking dashboard up. Its the same one we used during our testnet with some revisions. Community members will be able to go there and create their BluzelleNet wallet then choose to stake with one of the validators.
We’re also talking to other wallets to support Bluzelle so people can stake right through there.
We’ll put out a guide too.
Also, people need to keep in mind this is a soft-mainnet launch. Some things could change in terms of functions between phase and phase 2. Thats why we are breaking it up so there is a smooth transition.
Planning to give dates in the next 48 hours.
Darshan : Interesting, most of our community members were eagerly waiting to hear this. Thank you!
Q3. What are the major milestones Bluzelle has achieved in the past 2 quarters of 2020 and what can our community members expect in the near future?
Pavel Bains : The biggest would be:
The above gave us great confidence at the end of June. It helped us form our plans for the rest of the year. Where to spend our energy and how to build up the community support.
Going forward we have focused on four things: — Successfully launching the mainnet in its phases — Launching the defi/data product — User adoption in terms of partners, use cases and developers — wider adoption and use of $BLZ
Darshan : Impressive, I’m excited to see DeFi Data Product, when would it launch? Can you give us ETA for our community members?
Pavel Bains : Sometime between Mainnet Phase 1 and Phase 2. 😉
Darshan : Awesome 😊
Q4. Why a database like Bluzelle is needed in the Crypto space? Do you think that large institutions would ever switch to decentralize databases like Bluzelle
Pavel Bains : Crypto needs a Bluzelle for a few reasons:
  1. Dapps currently are using centralized tech as the majority of their stack. This defeats the purpose.
  2. Bluzelle gives great privacy and availability than others.
  3. As more users come on board to Defi platforms and regulations, they will need to manage data in a certain way that blockchains can’t. NoSQL type databases like Bluzelle are best to deliver that. Bluzelle is the only decentralized DB ready for these products.
Large institutions will adopt Bluzelle. I just don’t think its’ right now. They will see the crypto space growing and products being secure. That will give them confidence to use our tech. It will be battle tested.
Any product saying that large instiutions will use them right now are very un-realistic.
Darshan : 100% agree with your last point
Q5 Recent partnership news with HedgeTrade, Matic & Elrond were really great. Can we expect more such partnerships in the near future?
Pavel Bains : Yes those are just the start. We have many more in the works and many inquiries being made.
Darshan : Good to know!
Last question : Can Bluzelle database work with Oracle solutions? What are your thoughts about the DeFi boom?
Pavel Bains : Defi show that the first crypto use case is still the best use case. Make money
I think Defi is great as it shows strong usage and innovation. That will bring more products to the market, meaning more customers for Bluzelle. 😃
Bluzelle can definately works with oracle solutions. The defi product we are working on is highly related to it.
Darshan : Haha true that
I’m opening the floor for Community Questions.
The group was then opened for community members to ask their questions.
Community Member 1 :
Everyone is talking about Bluzelle staking now. Can you please explain why you came up with this? How many tokens has been allocated for Bluzelle staking and what are the rewards?
Pavel Bains :
We wanted a system that will encourage people to come in early but also won’t let whales who come late to do better than the early people. So we designed it in a way to encourage participation with all.
We’ve allocated 10% of the token supply over 4 years. Year 1: 20M Year 2: 15M Year 3: 10M Year 4: 5M
The rewards will range for people depending on when they come in. More people that join, more rewards distributed to everyone.
Community Member 2 :
Are there staking platform options to choose from? If there are, what are these platforms?
Pavel Bains :
For Phase 1, we’ll focus on Bluzelle’s own staking dashboard. We are currently engaging with other wallets and platforms.
Community Member 3 :
Q. Staking over ethereum through own wallet is being costly day by day due to network congestion and high fees of ethereum transactions so if anything possible for pool staking which can help more to even earn high rewards?
Pavel Bains :
Great question. We’ve noticed this and are working on a solution that will allow for pool staking. We will release this in the next two weeks. 😁
Community Member 4 :
Hie Sir @pavelbains When Can we Expect the Exchange STAKING.
Pavel Bains :
Between Phase 1 and Phase 2.
Community Member 5 :
When BNT to BLZ token swap?
Pavel Bains :
We won’t have a full swap yet. We are going to operate on a two token system (ERC 20 and Bluzelle Native) for a certain period. One being we have certain things planned for ethereum and want to make best of both worlds for token holders.
Community Member 6 :
When can we able to see Bluzelle Messenger in process ? Are there any specific functions compared to other messenger apps ?
Pavel Bains :
We are currently going through the testing of it and working on refinements. The basic functions will be same as all apps. The decentralized aspect will make it stronger. Plus we can add future crypto related features to it.
Community Member 7 :
Security, Interoperability and Scalability are very important factors for any Blockchain Project. What solution does the Bluzelle project have on these problems ?
Pavel Bains :
Interoperability — we are working with Cosmos. This makes us widely available to all blockchains. Security — decentralized database powered by validators that ensure only the owner can change the data Scalability — having thousands of nodes as our network makes it available everywhere and fast.
Community Member 8 :
What do you see as the biggest technical hurdle for 2020 ?
Pavel Bains :
Getting the mainnet launched and having an easy way for ERC 20 tokens to be bridged to Bluzelle and then available to Cosmos ecosystem.
Community Member 9 :
Can anybody on same network look at the data stored on their machine?
Pavel Bains :
No. The data is not available to the person running the machine/node.
Community Member 10 :
How much BLZ the validator needs to stake at least
Pavel Bains :
Just 1. But that may not give them much power or rewards or people wanting to delegate.
AFTER ANSWERING ALL QUESTIONS SUFFICIENTLY, PAVEL BAINS ALLOWED FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF QUESTIONS.
Community Member 1 :
Hi Pavel, really great work from you and your team, keep it up.
Q: You mentioned earlier that you are working / partnering wit a top 25 crypto project. Can you elaborate more on that? When will you announce more info about that?
Pavel Bains :
We cannot give any more details at this time. But will announce in the next 2–3 weeks.
Community Member 2 :
Hello Pavel Many blockchains have their exchange apps When should we expect Bluzelle’s own.
Also when is the softnet now fixed?
Pavel Bains :
We can update on Mainnet tomorrow.
Don’t understand the exchange apps question.
Community Member 3 :
Will we be able to stake $BLZ on platforms like atomic wallet
Pavel Bains :
We are in talks with wallets to support Bluzelle. :)
Community Member 4 :
when does staking start… this week? Next week? or has it been postponed?
Pavel Bains :
Targeting this week.
Community Member 5 :
50 million is just an extra reward, the developer paid BLZ.
Pavel Bains :
50 Million is over 4 years. It’s part of the token supply we had set aside for this.
Better to look at 20M the first year, which is 4% of the total supply.
Community Member 6 :
Hi Pavel. I would love to know what exact DeFi solutions Bluzelle would be offering.???
Pavel Bains :
If we said it, we’d let the cat out of the bag. We want to announce it with a full description.
Community Member 7 :
Hi Pavel,I will like to know if we can stake on binance also I will like to know if BLZ plans to list on Korean exchanges
Pavel Bains :
We are speaking with all the exchanges that support Bluzelle to make staking available so their users have easy accessibility.
THAT WAS THE END OF THE SECOND ROUND OF QUESTIONS.
Yingyao Xie : Ok thanks for this Pavel. Really great session. Before we close off the AMA, do you have any final comments that would be good for the community?
Pavel Bains : Yes.
The next month will be very exciting as more announcements will come. As you saw, today we announced the USD stablecoin pairs with Binance.
The online support and community building from everyone has been outstanding. We are definately getting the BLZ word around. Especially with Filecoin being released soon, we are in a good position to be a complementary product to them.
Though this was a focused AMA for this hour.As you know, I jump on TG throughout the day to answer questions or give more info.
I think next time I want to answer these in video format. Make it different. 😁
And that was the end of the AMA session. Great news and updates from the CEO himself on Bluzelle.

Polkadot Launch AMA Recap

Polkadot Launch AMA Recap

The Polkadot Telegram AMA below took place on June 10, 2020

https://preview.redd.it/4ti681okap951.png?width=4920&format=png&auto=webp&s=e21f6a9a276d35bb9cdec59f46744f23c37966ef
AMA featured:
Dieter Fishbein, Ecosystem Development Lead, Web3 Foundation
Logan Saether, Technical Education, Web3 Foundation
Will Pankiewicz, Master of Validators, Parity Technologies
Moderated by Dan Reecer, Community and Growth, Polkadot & Kusama at Web3 Foundation

Transcription compiled by Theresa Boettger, Polkadot Ambassador:

Dieter Fishbein, Ecosystem Development Lead, Web3 Foundation

Dan: Hey everyone, thanks for joining us for the Polkadot Launch AMA. We have Dieter Fishbein (Head of Ecosystem Development, our business development team), Logan Saether (Technical Education), and Will Pankiewicz (Master of Validators) joining us today.
We had some great questions submitted in advance, and we’ll start by answering those and learning a bit about each of our guests. After we go through the pre-submitted questions, then we’ll open up the chat to live Q&A and the hosts will answer as many questions as they can.
We’ll start off with Dieter and ask him a set of some business-related questions.

Dieter could you introduce yourself, your background, and your role within the Polkadot ecosystem?

Dieter: I got my start in the space as a cryptography researcher at the University of Waterloo. This is where I first learned about Bitcoin and started following the space. I spent the next four years or so on the investment team for a large asset manager where I primarily focused on emerging markets. In 2017 I decided to take the plunge and join the space full-time. I worked at a small blockchain-focused VC fund and then joined the Polkadot team just over a year ago. My role at Polkadot is mainly focused on ensuring there is a vibrant community of projects building on our technology.

Q: Adoption of Polkadot of the important factors that all projects need to focus on to become more attractive to the industry. So, what is Polkadot's plan to gain more Adoption? [sic]

A (Dieter): Polkadot is fundamentally a developer-focused product so much of our adoption strategy is focused around making Polkadot an attractive product for developers. This has many elements. Right now the path for most developers to build on Polkadot is by creating a blockchain using the Substrate framework which they will later connect to Polkadot when parachains are enabled. This means that much of our adoption strategy comes down to making Substrate an attractive tool and framework. However, it’s not just enough to make building on Substrate attractive, we must also provide an incentive to these developers to actually connect their Substrate-based chain to Polkadot. Part of this incentive is the security that the Polkadot relay chain provides but another key incentive is becoming interoperable with a rich ecosystem of other projects that connect to Polkadot. This means that a key part of our adoption strategy is outreach focused. We go out there and try to convince the best projects in the space that building on our technology will provide them with significant value-add. This is not a purely technical argument. We provide significant support to projects building in our ecosystem through grants, technical support, incubatoaccelerator programs and other structured support programs such as the Substrate Builders Program (https://www.substrate.io/builders-program). I do think we really stand out in the significant, continued support that we provide to builders in our ecosystem. You can also take a look at the over 100 Grants that we’ve given from the Web3 Foundation: https://medium.com/web3foundation/web3-foundation-grants-program-reaches-100-projects-milestone-8fd2a775fd6b

Q: On moving forward through your roadmap, what are your most important next priorities? Does the Polkadot team have enough fundamentals (Funds, Community, etc.) to achieve those milestones?

A (Dieter): I would say the top priority by far is to ensure a smooth roll-out of key Polkadot features such as parachains, XCMP and other key parts of the protocol. Our recent Proof of Authority network launch was only just the beginning, it’s crucial that we carefully and successfully deploy features that allow builders to build meaningful technology. Second to that, we want to promote adoption by making more teams aware of Polkadot and how they can leverage it to build their product. Part of this comes down to the outreach that I discussed before but a major part of it is much more community-driven and many members of the team focus on this.
We are also blessed to have an awesome community to make this process easier 🙂

Q: Where can a list of Polkadot's application-specific chains can be found?

A (Dieter): The best list right now is http://www.polkaproject.com/. This is a community-led effort and the team behind it has done a terrific job. We’re also working on providing our own resource for this and we’ll share that with the community when it’s ready.

Q: Could you explain the differences and similarities between Kusama and Polkadot?

A (Dieter): Kusama is fundamentally a less robust, faster-moving version of Polkadot with less economic backing by validators. It is less robust since we will be deploying new technology to Kusama before Polkadot so it may break more frequently. It has less economic backing than Polkadot, so a network takeover is easier on Kusama than on Polkadot, lending itself more to use cases without the need for bank-like security.
In exchange for lower security and robustness, we expect the cost of a parachain lease to be lower on Kusama than Polkadot. Polkadot will always be 100% focused on security and robustness and I expect that applications that deal with high-value transactions such as those in the DeFi space will always want a Polkadot deployment, I think there will be a market for applications that are willing to trade cheap, high throughput for lower security and robustness such as those in the gaming, content distribution or social networking sectors. Check out - https://polkadot.network/kusama-polkadot-comparing-the-cousins/ for more detailed info!

Q: and for what reasons would a developer choose one over the other?

A (Dieter): Firstly, I see some earlier stage teams who are still iterating on their technology choosing to deploy to Kusama exclusively because of its lower-stakes, faster moving environment where it will be easier for them to iterate on their technology and build their user base. These will likely encompass the above sectors I identified earlier. To these teams, Polkadot becomes an eventual upgrade path for them if, and when, they are able to perfect their product, build a larger community of users and start to need the increased stability and security that Polkadot will provide.
Secondly, I suspect many teams who have their main deployment on Polkadot will also have an additional deployment on Kusama to allow them to test new features, either their tech or changes to the network, before these are deployed to Polkadot mainnet.

Logan Saether, Technical Education, Web3 Foundation

Q: Sweet, let's move over to Logan. Logan - could you introduce yourself, your background, and your role within the Polkadot ecosystem?

A (Logan): My initial involvement in the industry was as a smart contract engineer. During this time I worked on a few projects, including a reboot of the Ethereum Alarm Clock project originally by Piper Merriam. However, I had some frustrations at the time with the limitations of the EVM environment and began to look at other tools which could help me build the projects that I envisioned. This led to me looking at Substrate and completing a bounty for Web3 Foundation, after which I applied and joined the Technical Education team. My responsibilities at the Technical Education team include maintaining the Polkadot Wiki as a source of truth on the Polkadot ecosystem, creating example applications, writing technical documentation, giving talks and workshops, as well as helping initiatives such as the Thousand Validator Programme.

Q: The first technical question submitted for you was: "When will an official Polkadot mobile wallet appear?"

A (Logan): There is already an “official” wallet from Parity Technologies called the Parity Signer. Parity Signer allows you to keep your private keys on an air-gapped mobile device and to interactively sign messages using web interfaces such as Polkadot JS Apps. If you’re looking for something that is more of an interface to the blockchain as well as a wallet, you might be interested in PolkaWallet which is a community team that is building a full mobile interface for Polkadot.
For more information on Parity Signer check out the website: https://www.parity.io/signe

Q: Great thanks...our next question is: If someone already developed an application to run on Ethereum, but wants the interoperability that Polkadot will offer, are there any advantages to rebuilding with Substrate to run as a parachain on the Polkadot network instead of just keeping it on Ethereum and using the Ethereum bridge for use with Polkadot?

A (Logan): Yes, the advantage you would get from building on Substrate is more control over how your application will interact with the greater Polkadot ecosystem, as well as a larger design canvas for future iterations of your application.
Using an Ethereum bridge will probably have more cross chain latency than using a Polkadot parachain directly. The reason for this is due to the nature of Ethereum’s separate consensus protocol from Polkadot. For parachains, messages can be sent to be included in the next block with guarantees that they will be delivered. On bridged chains, your application will need to go through more routes in order to execute on the desired destination. It must first route from your application on Ethereum to the Ethereum bridge parachain, and afterward dispatch the XCMP message from the Polkadot side of the parachain. In other words, an application on Ethereum would first need to cross the bridge then send a message, while an application as a parachain would only need to send the message without needing to route across an external bridge.

Q: DOT transfers won't go live until Web3 removes the Sudo module and token holders approve the proposal to unlock them. But when will staking rewards start to be distributed? Will it have to after token transfers unlock? Or will accounts be able to accumulate rewards (still locked) once the network transitions to NPoS?

A (Logan): Staking rewards will be distributed starting with the transition to NPoS. Transfers will still be locked during the beginning of this phase, but reward payments are technically different from the normal transfer mechanism. You can read more about the launch process and steps at http://polkadot.network/launch-roadmap

Q: Next question is: I'm interested in how Cumulus/parachain development is going. ETA for when we will see the first parachain registered working on Kusama or some other public testnet like Westend maybe?

A (Logan): Parachains and Cumulus is a current high priority development objective of the Parity team. There have already been PoC parachains running with Cumulus on local testnets for months. The current work now is making the availability and validity subprotocols production ready in the Polkadot client. The best way to stay up to date would be to follow the project boards on GitHub that have delineated all of the tasks that should be done. Ideally, we can start seeing parachains on Westend soon with the first real parachains being deployed on Kusama thereafter.
The projects board can be viewed here: https://github.com/paritytech/polkadot/projects
Dan: Also...check out Basti's tweet from yesterday on the Cumulus topic: https://twitter.com/bkchstatus/1270479898696695808?s=20

Q: In what ways does Polkadot support smart contracts?

A (Logan): The philosophy behind the Polkadot Relay Chain is to be as minimal as possible, but allow arbitrary logic at the edges in the parachains. For this reason, Polkadot does not support smart contracts natively on the Relay Chain. However, it will support smart contracts on parachains. There are already a couple major initiatives out there. One initiative is to allow EVM contracts to be deployed on parachains, this includes the Substrate EVM module, Parity’s Frontier, and projects such as Moonbeam. Another initiative is to create a completely new smart contract stack that is native to Substrate. This includes the Substrate Contracts pallet, and the ink! DSL for writing smart contracts.

Will Pankiewicz, Master of Validators, Parity Technologies


Q: (Dan) Thanks for all the answers. Now we’ll start going through some staking questions with Will related to validating and nominating on Polkadot. Will - could you introduce yourself, your background, and your role within the Polkadot ecosystem?

A (Will): Sure thing. Like many others, Bitcoin drew me in back in 2013, but it wasn't until Ethereum came that I took the deep dive into working in the space full time. It was the financial infrastructure aspects of cryptocurrencies I was initially interested in, and first worked on dexes, algorithmic trading, and crypto funds. I really liked the idea of "Generalized Mining" that CoinFund came up with, and started to explore the whacky ways the crypto funds and others can both support ecosystems and be self-sustaining at the same time. This drew me to a lot of interesting experiments in what later became DeFi, as well as running validators on Proof of Stake networks. My role in the Polkadot ecosystem as “Master of Validators” is ensuring the needs of our validator community get met.

Q: Cool thanks. Our first community question was "Is it still more profitable to nominate the validators with lesser stake?"

A (Will): It depends on their commission, but generally yes it is more profitable to nominate validators with lesser stake. When validators have lesser stake, when you nominate them this makes your nomination stake a higher percentage of total stake. This means when rewards get distributed, it will be split more favorably toward you, as rewards are split by total stake percentage. Our entire rewards scheme is that every era (6 hours in Kusama, 24 hours in Polkadot), a certain amount of rewards get distributed, where that amount of rewards is dependent on the total amount of tokens staked for the entire network (50% of all tokens staked is currently optimal). These rewards from the end of an era get distributed roughly equally to all validators active in the validator set. The reward given to each validator is then split between the validators and all their nominators, determined by the total stake that each entity contributes. So if you contribute to a higher percentage of the total stake, you will earn more rewards.

Q: What does priority ranking under nominator addresses mean? For example, what does it mean that nominator A has priority 1 and nominator B has priority 6?

A (Will): Priority ranking is just the index of the nomination that gets stored on chain. It has no effect on how stake gets distributed in Phragmen or how rewards get calculated. This is only the order that the nominator chose their validators. The way that stake from a nominator gets distributed from a nominator to validators is via Phragmen, which is an algorithm that will optimally put stake behind validators so that distribution is roughly equal to those that will get in the validator set. It will try to maximize the total amount at stake in the network and maximize the stake behind minimally staked validators.

Q: On Polkadot.js, what does it mean when there are nodes waiting on Polkadot?

**A (Will):**In Polkadot there is a fixed validator set size that is determined by governance. The way validators get in the active set is by having the highest amount of total stake relative to other validators. So if the validator set size is 100, the top 100 validators by total stake will be in the validator set. Those not active in the validator set will be considered “waiting”.

Q: Another question...Is it necessary to become a waiting validator node right now?

A (Will): It's not necessary, but highly encouraged if you actively want to validate on Polkadot. The longer you are in the waiting tab, the longer you get exposure to nominators that may nominate you.

Q: Will current validators for Kusama also validate for Polkadot? How strongly should I consider their history (with Kusama) when looking to nominate a good validator for DOTs?

A (Will): A lot of Kusama validators will also be validators for Polkadot, as KSM was initially distributed to DOT holders. The early Kusama Validators will also likely be the first Polkadot validators. Being a Kusama validator should be a strong indicator for who to nominate on Polkadot, as the chaos that has ensued with Kusama has allowed validators to battle test their infrastructure. Kusama validators by now are very familiar with tooling, block explorers, terminology, common errors, log formats, upgrades, backups, and other aspects of node operation. This gives them an edge against Polkadot validators that may be new to the ecosystem. You should strongly consider well known Kusama validators when making your choices as a nominator on Polkadot.

Q: Can you go into more details about the process for becoming a DOT validator? Is it similar as the KSM 1000 validators program?

A (Will): The Process for becoming a DOT validators is first to have DOTs. You cannot be a validator without DOTs, as DOTs are used to pay transaction fees, and the minimum amount of DOTs you need is enough to create a validate transaction. After obtaining enough DOTs, you will need to set up your validator infrastructure. Ideally you should have a validator node with specs that match what we call standard hardware, as well as one or more sentry nodes to help isolate the validator node from attacks. After the infrastructure is up and running, you should have your Polkadot accounts set up right with a stash bonded to a controller account, and then submit a validate transaction, which will tell the network your nodes are ready to be a part of the network. You should then try and build a community around your validator to let others know you are trustworthy so that they will nominate you. The 1000 validators programme for Kusama is a programme that gives a certain amount of nominations from the Web3 Foundation and Parity to help bootstrap a community and reputation for validators. There may eventually be a similar type of programme for Polkadot as well.
Dan: Thanks a lot for all the answers, Will. That’s the end of the pre-submitted questions and now we’ll open the chat up to live Q&A, and our three team members will get through as many of your questions as possible.
We will take questions related to business development, technology, validating, and staking. For those wondering about DOT:
DOT tokens do not exist yet. Allocations of Polkadot's native DOT token are technically and legally non-transferable. Hence any publicized sale of DOTs is unsanctioned by Web3 Foundation and possibly fraudulent. Any official public sale of DOTs will be announced on the Web3 Foundation website. Polkadot’s launch process started in May and full network decentralization later this year, holders of DOT allocations will determine issuance and transferability. For those who participated in previous DOT sales, you can learn how to claim your DOTs here (https://wiki.polkadot.network/docs/en/claims).


Telegram Community Follow-up Questions Addressed Below


Q: Polkadot looks good but it confuses me that there are so many other Blockchain projects. What should I pay attention in Polkadot to give it the importance it deserves? What are your planning to achieve with your project?

A (Will): Personally, what I think differentiates it is the governance process. Coordinating forkless upgrades and social coordination helps stand it apart.
A (Dieter): The wiki is awesome - https://wiki.polkadot.network/

Q: Over 10,000 ETH paid as a transaction fee , what if this happens on Polkadot? Is it possible we can go through governance to return it to the owner?

A: Anything is possible with governance including transaction reversals, if a network quorum is reached on a topic.
A (Logan): Polkadot transaction fees work differently than the fees on Ethereum so it's a bit more difficult to shoot yourself in the foot as the whale who sent this unfortunate transaction. See here for details on fees: https://w3f-research.readthedocs.io/en/latest/polkadot/Token%20Economics.html?highlight=transaction%20fees#relay-chain-transaction-fees-and-per-block-transaction-limits
However, there is a tip that the user can input themselves which they could accidentally set to a large amount. In this cases, yes, they could proposition governance to reduce the amount that was paid in the tip.

Q: What is the minimum ideal amount of DOT and KSM to have if you want to become a validator and how much technical knowledge do you need aside from following the docs?

A (Will): It depends on what the other validators in the ecosystem are staking as well as the validator set size. You just need to be in the top staking amount of the validator set size. So if its 100 validators, you need to be in the top 100 validators by stake.

Q: Will Web3 nominate validators? If yes, which criteria to be elected?

A (Will): Web 3 Foundation is running programs like the 1000 validators programme for Kusama. There's a possibility this will continue on for Polkadot as well after transfers are enabled. https://thousand-validators.kusama.network/#/
You will need to be an active validator to earn rewards. Only those active in the validator set earn rewards. I would recommend checking out parts of the wiki: https://wiki.polkadot.network/docs/en/maintain-guides-validator-payout

Q: Is it possible to implement hastables or dag with substrate?

A (Logan): Yes.

Q: Polkadot project looks very futuristic! But, could you tell us the main role of DOT Tokens in the Polkadot Ecosystem?

A (Dan): That's a good question. The short answer is Staking, Governance, Bonding. More here: http://polkadot.network/dot-token

Q: How did you manage to prove that the consensus protocol is safe and unbreakable mathematically?

A (Dieter): We have a research teams of over a dozen scientists with PhDs and post-docs in cryptography and distributed computing who do thorough theoretical analyses on all the protocols used in Polkadot

Q: What are the prospects for NFT?

A: Already being built 🙂

Q: What will be Polkadot next roadmap for 2020 ?

A (Dieter): Building. But seriously - we will continue to add many more features and upgrades to Polkadot as well as continue to strongly focus on adoption from other builders in the ecosystem 🙂
A (Will): https://polkadot.network/launch-roadmap/
This is the launch roadmap. Ideally adding parachains and xcmp towards the end of the year

Q: How Do you stay active in terms of marketing developments during this PANDEMIC? Because I'm sure you're very excited to promote more after this settles down.

A (Dan): The main impact of covid was the impact on in-person events. We have been very active on Crowdcast for webinars since 2019, so it was quite the smooth transition to all-online events. You can see our 40+ past event recordings and follow us on Crowdcast here: https://www.crowdcast.io/polkadot. If you're interested in following our emails for updates (including online events), subscribe here: https://info.polkadot.network/subscribe

Q: Hi, who do you think is your biggest competitor in the space?

A (Dan): Polkadot is a metaprotocol that hasn't been seen in the industry up until this point. We hope to elevate the industry by providing interoperability between all major public networks as well as private blockchains.

Q: Is Polkadot a friend or competitor of Ethereum?

A: Polkadot aims to elevate the whole blockchain space with serious advancements in interoperability, governance and beyond :)

Q: When will there be hardware wallet support?

A (Will): Parity Signer works well for now. Other hardware wallets will be added pretty soon

Q: What are the attractive feature of DOT project that can attract any new users ?

A: https://polkadot.network/what-is-polkadot-a-brief-introduction/
A (Will): Buidling parachains with cross chain messaging + bridges to other chains I think will be a very appealing feature for developers

Q: According to you how much time will it take for Polkadot to get into mainstream adoption and execute all the plans set for this project?

A: We are solving many problems that have held back the blockchain industry up until now. Here is a summary in basic terms:
https://preview.redd.it/ls7i0bpm8p951.png?width=752&format=png&auto=webp&s=a8eb7bf26eac964f6b9056aa91924685ff359536

Q: When will bitpie or imtoken support DOT?

A: We are working on integrations on all the biggest and best wallet providers. ;)

Q: What event/call can we track to catch a switch to nPOS? Is it only force_new_era call? Thanks.

A (Will): If you're on riot, useful channels to follow for updates like this are #polkabot:matrix.org and #polkadot-announcements:matrix.parity.io
A (Logan): Yes this is the trigger for initiating the switch to NPoS. You can also poll the ForceEra storage for when it changes to ForceNew.

Q: What strategy will the Polkadot Team use to make new users trust its platform and be part of it?

A (Will): Pushing bleeding edge cryptography from web 3 foundation research
A (Dan): https://t.me/PolkadotOfficial/43378

Q: What technology stands behind and What are its advantages?

A (Dieter): Check out https://polkadot.network/technology/ for more info on our tech stack!

Q: What problems do you see occurring in the blockchain industry nowadays and how does your project aims to solve these problems?

A (Will): Governance I see as a huge problem. For example upgrading Bitcoin and making decisions for changing things is a very challenging process. We have robust systems of on-chain governance to help solve these coordination problems

Q: How involved are the Polkadot partners? Are they helping with the development?

A (Dieter): There are a variety of groups building in the Polkadot ecosystem. Check out http://www.polkaproject.com/ for a great list.

Q: Can you explain the role of the treasury in Polkadot?

A (Will): The treasury is for projects or people that want to build things, but don't want to go through the formal legal process of raising funds from VCs or grants or what have you. You can get paid by the community to build projects for the community.
A: There’s a whole section on the wiki about the treasury and how it functions here https://wiki.polkadot.network/docs/en/mirror-learn-treasury#docsNav

Q: Any plan to introduce Polkadot on Asia, or rising market on Asia?

**A (Will):**We're globally focused

Q: What kind of impact do you expect from the Council? Although it would be elected by token holders, what kind of people you wish to see there?

A (Will): Community focused individuals like u/jam10o that want to see cool things get built and cool communities form

Crypto signals were a scam. Any possible profits could be made only by ourselves.

Crypto signals groups were all scam. Group leaders were publishing complicated technical charts showing theirs “expertise”, speculate about insiders, whales, whatever else. “Blockchain Whispers”, “Bitmex Whales”, private traders were trying to make money on selling signals to us.
There were even cypto signals aggregators, these groups were buying membership and then “pirate” signals forwarding them to theirs own group. One of these aggregators was recently closed and admin wrote an honest letter, saying that he doesn’t want his subscribers suffer more losses. That’s what he wrote:
“Over the last year or so, we have tenaciously tried many signal groups, sources and many approaches with the goal of getting you an edge in crypto trading. I believe having the access and reach we had over these last couple of years gave us a great edge. Some of us could even capitalize on this edge.. but what we have seen more and more over the last year, coming at it from as many angles as we could, with access to all the vast information and sources we had, is that fundamentally, signal groups are not profitable. In fact, they are becoming more and more polluted with misinformation and ‘scammy’ behaviour by the day. Based on this sure clarity, I would no longer be involved in promoting these groups or stand by and listen to the vast majority of our members beating themselves up over losses in trading.”
Nevertheless, group members paid for everything in the end.
The conclusion is that nobody will give us money, we can only take it by ourselves with the knowledge, research and disciplined trading (obvious, right? no, not for all). Nobody will give us profitable signals, we can make it only by ourselves.
That was my motivation when I’ve started to study to scripting languages, trading algos, liquidity, execution, exchanges etc., to write my own bot/strategy, to produce signals by myself.
What I’ve understood after building my own crypto bot and few months of automatic trading:
That is for positive sides. As for negative sides, they are the same as for manual trading and more:
What I’ve found that in 2020 we have great developed open source places for algotrading that easily connect like LEGO bricks.
There are great support telegram groups such as PineScripters with ultra-helpful admins and coders to help people with peculiarities of Tradingview’s Pine programming.
But I found nothing where one can ask some beginners questions about simple adding strategy to the chart, tuning, testing, getting real strategy’s results or about simple the way to execute on exchange. For some beginners question how to get into algotrading without … years of coding experience.
Today I've wrote the first part of complete beginners step-by-step bot building guide using open source strategy on TradingView and plan to test more strategies and publish actual trading results.
TLDR; To avoid scams in crypto, we should learn how to profit by ourselves. Let’s research new trading algos together.

Swipe 2020 Mid-Year Report

Swipe 2020 Mid-Year Report

https://preview.redd.it/69em74riec951.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d281a6cad70d72293091ef33f75cfd32d27a9b36
I. Brief
The first half of 2020 has shown the activeness of the Swipe team to keep its mission of enabling millions of people to access and spend crypto come to life. From mobile payment partnerships, additional trading partners, service enhancements, and up to monthly giveaways and educational posts, our team continuously strives its best to deliver quality service to the community.
As a newcomer in the industry, we have placed ourselves on the right track by starting this year with the announcement of the integration of Apple Pay on the Swipe mobile application. Since then, we’ve also added more mobile payment options on our app by partnering with Google Pay and Samsung Pay.
We started to roll out our aggressive marketing campaigns and giveaways by creating engaging content and announcing various contests that gathered a significant increase in our engagements and impressions. We also relaunched our redesigned website and added more information about our products and services.
Our journey to bring cryptocurrency to mass adoption is far from over. There will always be hurdles on the road ahead of us, but we see it as a challenge that will take us at a place full of opportunities for cryptocurrency growth and innovation.
II. Reliable solutions amidst pandemic
The world currently faces an unprecedented disruption as it currently finds solutions to fight off the COVID-19 pandemic. This pandemic not only produced serious health risks but also made a huge impact on the global economy and forced traditional financial services to adapt sudden changes to their system. This, in turn, led to a sudden shift in the usage of digital financial services that helps people make transactions easier wherever they are.
Our team believes that in times like this, we have to provide the community with solutions to mitigate the risks of being infected with the disease. In April, we announced the limit increase for our pin-less NFC tap payments, and by the end of that month, we’ve added Samsung Pay on the roster of our mobile payment partners. These small steps that we are taking day by day show that aside from being a crypto service provider, we also value the needs and safety of our clients.

https://preview.redd.it/zjemscskec951.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8c1ac93f510155b650d698ad7436c3be3022b5a0
II. Strategic Partnerships with Trusted Mobile Payment
Swipe has continuously expanded its features and reach over the course of its inception. This year, we have sealed notable partnerships with mobile payment solutions such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay to increase the options of our users to buy and spend cryptocurrencies.
As a mobile crypto wallet application, available on both iOS and Android devices, we believe in finding continuous possibilities of expanding our service features. We are fully committed to bringing easier access to cryptocurrency buying and spending through our products.
III. Increasing Trading Partners and Coin Inclusion
Our native cryptocurrency, Swipe Token (SXP), has also been added to four new crypto trading exchanges, namely, Uniswap Exchange, Bithumb, DigiFinex, and BQ.Net. This move was made for crypto investors to get access and trade SXP(which as of writing has a circulating supply of 65,982,752 SXP) easily on reliable and reputable exchanges.
We are reviewing our market movements regularly and we’ve seen that some exchanges were SXP is listed showed signs of poor security, fake volumes, or extremely low liquidity. This made us decide to quickly make a delisting request on these exchanges and only retain the ones we view to be reliable. At present SXP is listed on Bilaxy, Kucoin, DigiFinex, Uniswap, Bithumb Global, BQ.Net, CoinTiger, Bittrex, Bithumb, and IDEX.
We’ve also sealed partnerships with Vision Crypto App and VCC Exchange to include SXP on their list of supported cryptocurrencies. Vision and VCC Exchange users can now start adding SXP on their portfolio and wallet and start trading SXP/BTC, respectively.
IV. Enhancing Features: Swipe Wallet App Updates
In March and April of this year, we’ve announced the integration of the $DAI stablecoin, $TRX (Tron), $ARK, and USDC on the Swipe wallet platform. This move gives our users more cryptocurrency choices in the app where they can buy and sell via their linked bank account or cards, spend it to fiat using Swipe Visa, and exchange these coins instantly with all the supported coins in the Swipe Wallet platform.
Also, as we commit to deliver a reliable, convenient, and secured mobile crypto experience to our users, last May and June we made two system updates (v1.37 and v1.4) on our application to fix some bug issues, upgrade app features and enhance the Swipe mobile interface.
V. Waiving Fees for Swipe Visa Card
We are committed to helping the crypto community, especially in these difficult times. Following the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) order for Wirecard UK to cease activities, some cryptocurrency users are left in limbo as to what will happen to their crypto card related services.
This incident did not affect Swipe Visa card operations as it is not connected with Wirecard. In fact, Swipe Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Joselito Lizarondo quickly offered free Swipe Visa card orders to all those who wish to migrate from their previous cards to Swipe. At present, Swipe offers free order and shipping of its Visa card in the United Kingdom and European Union countries.
On top of these, the removal of all fiat in fees for all verified users was also announced last March 15. Verified users can top-up their Swipe Wallet account with USD, EUR, GBP, and more for free. Swipe commits itself to assist the community when needed. Though our sources may not be as big compared to our competitors, we believe in valuing and preserving the industry that brought us to where we are now.
VI. Giving Back to the Community
Part of our marketing strategy to introduce cryptocurrency and also our services is to host various giveaway programs on our social media pages. We’ve launched our #SATSBACK program where we reward our users is in the original cryptocurrency that started it all: Bitcoin (BTC).
Since January of this year, we launched five giveaway programs on Twitter and Telegram offering up to $100 in BTC to participants. Last February 12, Swipe has partnered with KuCoin and gave away $200,000 in SXP to the top bounty participants.
VII. Cryptocurrency and Fintech Literacy
Part of our company’s initiative is to educate its future and existing users of anything and everything about crypto and financial technology. Last May, we launched the “Learn with Swipe: Your Essential Guide to Cryptocurrencies and Financial Technology” blog project. These series of blog posts aim to share the team’s knowledge in crypto and fintech and encourage new and existing crypto users to continue learning their way in the industry.
VIII. Final Thoughts
We are still paving our way to the crypto industry. Over the first six months of 2020, we tried our best to deliver better cryptocurrency experience to our users. Though there are setbacks caused by the ongoing global pandemic, we are blessed to know that you still continue to support our project and goals.
The majority of us are still uncertain of what will happen in the next half of 2020. But for sure, challenges will not hinder our team to develop and provide innovations and solutions for a better crypto managing experience.

🏆🏆 Double Rewards on Solana Liquidity Mining Campaign!

🏆🏆 Double Rewards on Solana Liquidity Mining Campaign!

You can participate in this campaign at http://miners.hummingbot.io/
For any questions about this campaign please join the Solana Telegram.

Getting Started Guide

Hummingbot is a platform that allows community members to earn money by providing market liquidity for a specific token using their assets. To do this, you can use the Hummingbot bot or your usual software via the API.
Bot checks bid-side and ask size of the order book each minute taking a snapshot at random time and accrues reward accordingly. The size of the award differs from market to market. You can find the expected size of the reward and the number of active bots on the site.
(Please note that the size of the award indicated on the site is a retro-analysis of historical data and may differ in the future)
Markets and snapshot results: https://miners.hummingbot.io/
Current available programs on Hummingbot: https://docs.hummingbot.io/liquidity-mining/#current-campaign-terms
The size of the award depends mostly on three factors:
  • The volume of assets in the trade (the larger the volume, the higher the award)
  • Spread (the smaller the spread, the higher the award)
  • Period of participation in the campaign (the longer, the greater the award)
To start mining the liquidity for Solana tokens through Hummingbot, you need to install a bot:

Installation Instructions (~ 10 minutes)

https://docs.hummingbot.io/quickstart/
Minimum requirements**:**
  • MacOS: macOS 10.12.6 (Sierra) or later
  • Windows: Windows 10 or later
  • Linux: Ubuntu 16.04 or later
Installation Short Overview:
  1. Download the bot
  1. Install it on the computer
  1. Configure the bot
First, the bot starts in the so-called Paper Mode (without real crypto assets) so that you can play around and try its functions.
❗️Important: The published Yield/Day metrics only include reward payments versus order volumes. They do not capture the individual miner's profit or loss on the underlying strategy or any transaction fees (if any) that generated the orders created. This is the responsibility of the user, as is the observance of the rules and conditions of trading activity in his jurisdiction.

I'm back with another $50 freeroll for r/poker members

I got distracted for a week and stopped running these, but that gave blockchain.poker some time to improve their scalability with the massive influx in new users over the past couple of weeks.
Today's tournament will be held at 7pm PDT (10pm EDT, 2am GMT). As a reminder, this website is open to everyone regardless of where you live, and you don't need to register for the site in advance (though it is advisable to change your username and set a password if you hold any balance on the site).
TOURNAMENT DETAILS
Time: Saturday March 28th (TODAY), 7pm PDT (10pm EDT, 2am GMT) Buy-in: Free Prize pool: 0.25 BCH, currently $52 Password: blitz Link: https://blockchain.poker?tournament=9685
Registration opens 1 hour before the tournament start time, and there's 30 minutes of late registration.
A big thank you to Blitz Network for agreeing to sponsor this tournament (and a few more throughout this week)! Blitz is a high-touch crypto OTC trading desk.
The way Blitz wanted to sponsor the tourneys means there will be two more $50 freerolls, one on Sunday and one on Monday. Followed by three days of $100 GTD $1 buy-in tournaments. And on Friday and Saturday, TBD guarantee higher stakes tournaments, (possibly $500 GTD with $10 BI).
In the last week, blockchain.poker has also added more customization to tournament creation, so I can experiment with running a 6max tournament, short or deep stack, or longer move timers. For this first one I've decided to keep it simple and keep it at 1500 chips starting stack, 9max tables, but I increased the move timer from 12s to 18s. I'm definitely open to feedback on these settings so please comment if you have any preference.
If you find blockchain.poker confusing or would just like to learn more about how it works, you can check out this guide I wrote.
And if you'd like to join the chat group where I coordinate these tournaments and publish the password each day, look up @BCHPoker on Telegram.

Weekly Update: Parachute patent, Harmony + Debrief, COTI Staking 2.0, Crypto Leagues... – 27 Mar - 2 Apr'20
Hi everyone! We have caught up with the latest week again. Woohoo! Here’s your week at Parachute + partners (27 Mar - 2 Apr'20):

The Parachute crew filed a patent this week focused on chat-based payments using blockchain. Gamerboy’s latest TTR trivia was based on scientific names. Congratulations to Foo for winning this week’s Parena. One of the rare moments when a host wins Parena. Woot! We also had a flash Parena which saw Nuno’s Macaque beat Foo’s Tapir in a closely fought finale to take home 10k $PAR. And another Parena to mark the start of April. Whew! Victor hosted a fun trivia in TTR this week. The tiproom crew also hosted a photo contest to break away from the quarantine blues with a 30k $PAR prize pot. A surprise CoD game hosted by Tavo saw 5k+ $PAR being given away in prizes. He also held a qualifier battle royale round this week in preparation of a new season. Mark (@Kryptopia) launched the beta version of his Crypto Leagues trading game this week with the inaugural league having some cool $PAR prizes. It’s a crypto trading simulation game where you can compete with friends and family. Jason started his #wholesomewed early and made it a week-long event – "..do something helpful or nice for a stranger. It can be as small as finding some toilet paper for someone..". For Two-for-Tuesday, folks posted music from "bands or artists whose name starts with A, B, C or D". Thanks again Sebastian for making the playlist! A Tuesday special random TTR trivia had 500 $PAR in rewards per question. DoYourTip and Tiproom gear are now available in the Parachute shop. Cool!
The first ever Crypto League had $PAR prizes for the top traders. Cool!
Ethos’ parent company Voyager completed its acquisition of Circle Invest with converting all 40k accounts to Voyager. Sentivate released their public and private project decks. The latest browser update includes support for torrents. For other dev updates, click here, here, here, here (thread) and here. Not yet on the Mycro Hunter App? Click here to see how to sign up. OST launched Meetly this week – a directory of #StayAtHome events across the world. SelfKey fans, hope you didn’t forget to share your ideas on getting the Wallet App into more hands. ExMarkets joined SelfKey’s crypto exchange marketplace. The team also shared a few wealth management tips in their latest blog post. How does $KEY act as a reputational element in a distributed system? Read here. Yazom announced that the app was ready for release and awaiting approval from Play Store. Wibson launched MyCovidRisk to detect possible COVID-19 infections using location history. DoYourTip and Intellishare did a crossover social media giveaway starting this week with cool $DYT and $INE prizes for some fun activities. Jobchain website had an upgrade. Click here to read GET Protocol’s latest monthly update report. COTI introduced their latest staking model this week. The new mechanism will allow more volume and participants. Early registration for Staking 2.0 was started as well. Staking rewards for March were distributed. Following last week’s airdrop, DoYourTip community decided to airdrop even more $DYT to wallets that never held any. For this they will be conducting a series of votes to select the project whose HODLers will receive the airdrops. The first two of these polls (1, 2, 3) happened this week. Plus, another bonus bounty for $DYT fans. The giveaways never end! $DYT’s price metrics were added to Coinpaprika and Etherscan. A new league in the Crypto Leagues gaming platform was also launched with $DYT prizes.
An early sneak peek of SelfKey’s next desktop version update
BlockDaemon joined Harmony as a staking partner this week. Remember the partnership with privacy protocol solution Suterusu announced last week? This week, the team also hosted an AMA with their CTO, Dr. Lin Huang. MoonStake became the latest staking platform to add Harmony and their partner BinaryStar announced support for community and marketing activities for Harmony in Japan. For the latest #pow thread, video summary and community update for the week gone by, click here, here and here respectively. A demo video of the NFT Store dApp was also released. Wetez became the latest staking partner of Harmony. Click here to read their AMA transcript. Hope you got a chance to share your feedback on the updated proposal for staking economics submitted by Co-founder Nick White which was formalised into a new tokenomics model. This release was followed by an AMA announcement for next week to discuss this in detail. For the TLDR, click here. Blockchain-based communication platform Debrief joined hands with the project to build dAPI middleware on the Harmony platform. The network experienced a temporary outage this week which was restored quickly. The team did a close inspection of a consensus issue and resolved those as well. A new contest was announced where validators now stand a chance to win 3 months of free computing power on AVS or Vultr. All internally mined $ONE tokens will be burned leading to nil inflation of token supply. Here’s a video summary that explains the burn. BitMax announced staking support for Harmony. Plus, validators can now track their nodes through Telegram. That is awesome! A .crypto domain giveaway was a great way to end the week on a high.
The new $ONE economic model
For the weekly aXpire update, click here. COO Matthew Markham wrote about why expense allocation is an important consideration for fund managers and about the applications of machine learning in law firms. Next week, CEO Gary Markham will be speaking at a webinar by Hedge Fund Association on cost containment strategies which aXpire is also sponsoring. Have you read the 2gether manifesto yet? Click here if you haven’t. Want to make a poster out of it? Here ya go! The results of the private beta testing of the XIO portal were compiled with a follow-up AMA to happen soon.

Hydrogen integrated real estate data provider Zillow to its platform this week. The project also announced a partnership with FinConecta to help legacy financial firms move to a Banking-as-a-Service model. The team’s tips on BCP (business continuity plan) is a helpful guide for all fintechs.

And with that, it’s a wrap. See you again with another update. Ciao!
