The Quest for Lightning Block Propagation

TurtleCoin has 30 second block time which makes transactions on the network faster than other projects; however, it poses some challenges in making sure that new blocks propagate across the entire network as quickly as possible to prevent the creation of unnecessary network forks. While increasing the number of nodes on the network helps to achieve this goal, reducing the size of the blocks that are transmitted between nodes allows us to propagate a block so fast it’s almost as if they were transmitted by lightning.

There was a bunch of other details that I liked as well technically, hence probably warrants a relisten. Continue Reading →

Proof-of-Work Algorithm Change

The core development team has observed the fact that the network hash rate has climbed substantially over the last few weeks. Luckily, the hashrate has remained rather decentralized and balanced over the large number of pools that the community operates. However, the significant increase in hashrate has made it more difficult for the project to meet one of its core goals. To remain mineable for everyone. After careful consideration, we believe it’s once again time to perform a soft fork to a new Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm. Continue Reading →

Interview w/ WhassupZA from Plenteum

RockSteady (TRTL)

OK great, thanks for doing the interview. I understand that you came across the TurtleCoin/Masari web wallet porting project because you yourself operate a TurtleCoin fork known as Plenteum. Since Plenteum was the motivator behind porting this web wallet, can you tell us a bit about the vision behind it, and where the fork is headed? Continue Reading →

Getting TRTL Network Ready For Enterprise w/ Fexra from TRTL Services

RockSteady (TRTL)

fexra thanks for agreeing to the interview. I think this one will really put some perspective out there for people who are skeptical about the enterprise capability of the TRTL Network. If you had to shill me your hosted services in 30 seconds or less, what would you say? Continue Reading →
