Let’s Talk About Mixins

We are moving to static mixins, and we want to talk to you about what those words mean and why that’s important for your privacy.

In the beginning…

In the days before Cryptonote, there were coin mixing operations for Bitcoin users to hide the origin of their coins. The mixer would be a web app that shuffled bits and pieces of Bitcoin back and forth enough where it became slightly more difficult to figure out who sent what. Aside from being the perfect recipe for exit scams, these days, with companies like Chainalysis and the non-fungible nature of Bitcoin, this does very little to enhance privacy. Continue Reading →

This Week In TurtleCoin (Jun 17, 2018)

This week we added a new core contributor, deployed a new and improved block explorer, announced a new CLI wallet, made yet another web wallet, ripped out some code and stuff we probably shouldn’t be touching, and more…

And now for this week’s updates…

Zedwallet [Pictured Above] —Zedwallet is a new CLI wallet that replaces Simplewallet in TurtleCoin, and really any Cryptonote coin with very few modifications. In this wallet we have in-wallet fusions, transaction splitting, and an improved user experience. We recently did an in-depth article detailing the work that went into the new wallet with the creator himself. Continue Reading →

Zedwallet, A New Simplewallet for CryptoNote Currencies

Some of you may have noticed in the last few releases that Simplewallet has been looking a bit more polished. In fact, what you may not have noticed is the old Simplewallet is gone, and we’ve all been using the new Zedwallet since v0.4.2.

This Week In TurtleCoin (June 3, 2018)

We passed 500,000 blocks this week, and learned that pinging 11,000 chat users is the quickest way to get to 10,000 chat users!

Gladiator Bot —“Gladiator Bot is now in full swing! He has a fully functional leveling system where turtles can fight to the death and earn experience to level up! At present, levels provide you with bragging rights. As time goes on, that will change. More importantly, wins and losses are now being tracked and can be displayed per user by typing *level in the colosseum! Gladiator Bot now also has his own wallet set up which in the coming days will be incorporated into his code to allow fight prizes to be won! The leaderboard code is coming together nicely and this could also spell the beginning of weekly tournaments! For my first JS project, there have obviously been hiccups and times when the bot has crashed but I thank you all for being patient with me as I fix these bugs and thank you still for pointing these bugs out to me! As always, I’m happy to receive suggestions for the bot and am taking them all on board.”— Rynem Continue Reading →
