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.
I think I need to listen the to the Kevin Rose TRTL podcast again – the only reason I really ended up in TurtleCoin in the first place is that of the core concept of a “network” with “applications” and “TRTL is just the currency one”. There was a bunch of other details that I liked as well technically, hence probably warrants a relisten.
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.
Well, when a coinbase transaction and a fusion transaction love each other very much…
Folks, an unfortunate consequence of running a really great pool is that you attract more miners. Unfortunately for one pool, they’ve far exceeded a share of the network than what is healthy for all of us, so I’m asking you today to move.
I’ve been teasing at this announcement for a few weeks now on Twitter, and I’ve heard guesses all over the place for what it could be. Finally I can give you guys the news about a TurtleCoin feature that nobody else in our space has yet. Starting today, you can one click enable TRTL crypto tips on your Twitch.tv streams and start taking money immediately! I was so excited about this news for you guys that I wanted to interview the creator himself, Watter. I know you guys will enjoy this one 🙂
@Turtley McTurtleton McDrizzle Thanks for doing the interview. I wanted to talk today about ForkMaps, and what forking means to the community, and why it’s worth tracking.
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?
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?
A common question we get from users is wondering what the maximum amount of TRTL they can send is, often because they went to send a (relatively) small amount, and got an error ‘Transaction is too big’.
