Weekly Update

This Week In TurtleCoin (OCT 23, 2018)

Developer Community

turtle-completo – I have rewritten the local turtle explorer using python and kivy frame work. Initially I just wanted to find a good GUI framework to make a turtle wallet, then I was looking into kivy for its crossplatform feature. So I thought I could move the local explorer to kivy first, then start developing the turtle wallet that I wanted to add on to the local explorer. The turtle-completo project looks better and it is more dynamic in terms of searching behavior, and it is faster than the previous local turtle explorer, though I know there is still a lot room for improvement. (I admit my code is a bit messy, and I probably forgot to remove some unused lines, I will get back to that later and clean it up) The turtle wallet is still under development. If anyone that wants to join the party and make a “project completo” with me, just DM me on discord. Also, if you are developing or interested in developing a mobile version turtle wallet, please let me know, I would like to work together. – Sabo (Revolutionary)

turtlecoin-rpc-go – 2 weeks back I posted about the major restructure that this library (turtlecoin-rpc-go) got and I told about the documentation thing. Here we are today, in this timespan I have tested every RPC call using the library and documented those at https://api-docs.turtlecoin.lol . The library also got some error handling as promised. It is up to date with the latest dev branch of the network. I will be working on adding more error/exception handling, making it more reliable (which it is by the way), and follow the Go standard conventions. I am looking forward towards the community to integrate this library in their projects. – rashedmyt

GUI Node – I got the gui node working with the help of Z and ibmcd. The purpose of the GUI node is that home users need to be able to run public nodes on their home computers to avoid centralization with AWS and other cloud providers. A simple port forward is all you need. The chain is getting big enough to where it makes sense to run on home hardware rather than a hosted server. Currently you can start the daemon and define a price and fee wallet. The roadblock I’m having is kind of stupid. I’m trying to assign the value of the fee when entered to the QProcess parameter. It sounds really simple but I’m just dumb when it comes to Qt.  -Rock

Web Wallet – Now that we’re at a point on our fork that we can release, we’re shifting focus back to the web wallet. In progress at the moment is the ability for the webwallet to connect directly to a node (private node). The first step of this is to create some new RPC calls in the daemon to allow the web wallet to retreive transactions directly (thanks @ZPalmTree who’s already done some work on this), this involves some optimisation and stripping of data we don’t need and then we will update the web-wallet’s RPC calls to go direct to node so we can drop the background caching process in the web wallet. The final challenge with this is to ensure that the web-wallet, on an HTTPS interface can connect directly to the node on an HTTP interface. –WhassupZA | Plenteum

The Traveler’s Guide to #exile

This is a guide for all of those who’ve suddenly found themselves read-only in our chat with an #exile role applied to their account. This is a welcome-guide of sorts, and an explainer for the TurtleCoin Judiciary Appeals Process.

Oh no! I was happily shitposting and now I can’t say anything except for this one room with the grabby wolf-turtles! — ExileTurtle RIP

We have to accept the responsibility that free speech and anonymity can lead to some disasters, and if you don’t discourage troublemakers, you lose a lot of good people. We don’t want to kick you or ban you, we just can’t have you in the front room showing your ass to guests.

You can see here, CrappyRules eating an inmate.

The good news is, most people get out of exile within minutes. Sit tight.

Probably by the time you’re done reading, not skimming, this article, you’ll have someone waiting to talk to you. In the mean time, here’s what’s about to happen.

Arrest & Intake

An exile role is applied to you. You are now read-only in all chats except for #exile, and there are other chats you just won’t be able to see anything. At this point, nobody has addressed what has brought you to #exile and your case is awaiting arbitration. Your username will usually have the label (INMATE).

Note: Exile is completely a free speech zone. I’m not saying to go and harrass anyone with an (inmate) tag, I’m saying if you want to tell someone exactly how you feel about them, this is for sure the place, but beware, being directly hazardous to the community, or disregarding an order to chill out will get you in a sticky situation, and don’t be surprised if you step over the line and notice the exit door a lot harder to find!

This is Shortok’s baby. Look at it.

The Appeals Process

There is a voluntary appeals process. Everyone is given a chance to sway the community sentiment in their favor. If you’d like to appoint a representative to help petition for your release, this is allowed.

If you have decided to submit a statement, an ad-hoc committee of your peers will be created to evaluate your appeal.

Rare Origami Turtles are a sure bet.

Judgement & Redemption

If you’ve made your appeal, and it is decided you need to get right with the community, you’ll be given three choices for redemption:

  • A tribute — You must pay a tribute to the rain bot, or tip the person you’ve wronged.
  • A challenge — You’ll be issued a challenge, like singing for us, or crafting a bespoke haiku to convey your apologies to the Appeals Committee.
  • A sentence — Doing time in #exile is always a respectful way to repent. Some of the most caustic members of our society have gone through this way, the longest being a month or more, and come out as gems of our society.

That’s all there is to it.

In all, #exile can be a scary place, and there’s a lot of reasons why you don’t want to get sent there. Keep in mind though, you’re there for a reason, and we’d rather you be a good sport and earn your way out. It’s a rehabilitative process that will help integrate you with the community. And most of all, you don’t want to run in to Wazlo.

Seriously, you don’t want to meet Wazlo.

How To Be A Good Turtle

Thanks to Uurayan for inspiring this article, I hope it inspires some of you! -RockSteady

An illustrated Guide For Identifying Good Turtles

As always, we Turtles learn by doing, and while I was doing a bad job of informing the community what we like to see, a Good Turtle came along and showed me some resources that I could use to help you guys! Thanks Uurayan!

1. A Good Turtle Always Says Hello!

Seeing someone pop in the chat is always exciting. Take a second from your conversation to welcome them!

Here you can see Mr. Bones and Shiraz being very welcoming Turtles. Great job guys!

Say hello to someone by @’ing their username when you see them, and maybe a small welcome phrase if they’re arriving from a recent event that got us a lot of new faces.

When a new user joins, they can’t type for the first 5–10 minutes, so be patient!

Bring the new person up to speed on the conversation at hand and give them some context, and then ask for their input. Everyone has a voice here, and a good way to get to know someone is to get them involved as soon as they hit the floor.

2. A Good Turtle Is Happy To Be Helpful!

Being new can be scary and frustrating, especially if you need help! When you see Turtles who need help, even if you don’t know the answer, acknowledge them and allow them to explain to you what’s going on.

Ereptor and Turtle? are two Good Turtles in the #help channel

When someone asks for help, even if you don’t know the answer, please take a second to pop in the #help channel and grab someone who can help. Try not to just bark back at them “Go ask #help”, if you can, take them by the shell and go there with them and see that they find help.

People will be frustrated, that’s okay! Keep your convo 100% related to fixing their problems and you’ll win them over every time when they’re fixed. The most angry people will be your most passionate supporters if you help them.

3. A Good Turtle Knows Their Surroundings!

Sometimes the party can get a little out of hand, and conversations can drift into uncertain waters, that’s okay! We’ve made lots of channels for you to express yourself.

When in doubt, take it to #market-talk
  • Are you in #dev_marketing because you invested at 1235 SAT and demand to know when the next sweet pump sesh is happening? Is your question in any way related to price, trade, or markets?
    Market talk goes in #market-talk.
  • Are you sure you need to post the brand new issue of NSFW Turtentacle Hentai vol. XVII in general chat? 
    Post it in #off-topic
  • Do you see someone complaining about not being given enough free TRTL or otherwise disrespecting the general giving spirit of the chat? 
    Tell them to post it in #exile where there are no rain or tip bots.
  • Are you standing in #dev_general shouting about not being able to sync your daemon? 
    Get a glass of water, and post it in #help.

Disappointed with the amount of your free TRTL? We can fix that.

General is the first chat where all the new users end up, and this is where they form their first impressions. Please be nice, and be thinking at all times “Is this conversation representing the community in a good way?”

You don’t have to be a party pooper to kindly guide the conversation where it belongs; don’t point fingers if you get called out for being in the wrong spot, and don’t put up a fight when you’re asked to go.

What To Do When You See A Good Turtle!

  1. Thank them! Tell them they make the chat a better place. Tip them if you feel like they did something good!
    If others see you recognizing a Good Turtle for their effort, they’ll want to do the same. You don’t have to take it from me, just Google search “The Big Bang Theory Episode About Pavlov Response”.. Here’s a clip:

2. Help them! Good Turtles Multiply!

Anybody can help, even if you’re not a coder. If you see someone trying to help a user and the user is taking the drama to a new level, be the soothing voice that pops in and reiterates what the helpful Turtle is trying to say. Sometimes hearing something from another person’s words helps.

Never forget the Turtles who helped you

3. When You See A Good Turtle, Post A Link To This Article And Let Other’s Know What Makes This Person So Great!

Good Turtles make this community thrive, and without them we’d be lost. Even if it is not on this list, find a way to acknowledge the Good Turtles, and let them know you appreciate their hard work!

Thanks again to Uurayan for helping us pay attention to the things that matter and urging us to create a framework for what exactly makes the ideal chatter.

(aka Zach from England)

Welcome to the third installment of Out of the Shell, a series of interviews with the developers, designers, and doers behind TurtleCoin. This is @gigantomachia and I’ll be your host.

Any open-source crypto project is only as strong as the developers behind it. Though only three months old, TurtleCoin’s developer community has demonstrated that it’s among the most active. CoinGecko, which uses various metrics to rank cryptocurrencies and other cryptoassets to help investors gauge their value, currently ranks TurtleCoin 64th out of 131,392 coins on the list of coins with the strongest developer community (measured by number of stars, merged pull requests, new commits, etc., on GitHub). That places it above even Bitcoin Cash, which CoinGecko ranks 82nd on the list.

One of the developers contributing to TurtleCoin’s stellar ranking is @Zpalmtree, who so far has roughly 70 commits to TurtleCoin’s various GitHub repos. I chatted with @Zpalmtree about his background, how he came to join the TurtleCoin community, what projects he’s currently working on, and how others can contribute. Enjoy.

Tips welcome: TRTLuxvBFVNSxovAp3c9C8h8dUttA4sP8hHELDQJXsQZ7JcKfnn3sLkUPGQgQBkvvhXFfAErUqmf52BzyqFaHhEHicRNLnXYfRj (Gigantomachia)

How did you first learn about TurtleCoin?
I saw a thread about it on 4chan /biz/. Funnily enough, I actually saw the very first thread about TurtleCoin and posted in it a bit, but it was pretty late and forgot about it in the morning. A month or so later I saw another thread, and it looked pretty fun, so I gave the software a download. I didn’t realize I had posted in the original thread until someone linked to it and I read through and realized some of the posts were mine!

What initially drew you to the coin? What was it about those posts that enticed you to comment and then later download the software?
My memory isn’t great, but if I remember correctly it was someone saying that you could mine thousands in a day. I imagine most miners have seen their balances slowly tick up with fractions of a coin, and whilst it may be worth the same either way, having TRTL flow into your wallet in the thousands is a lot more fun. Sure enough, when I woke up the next day, I already had 60,000 TRTL received from one night of mining.

How long have you been involved in crypto?
I’ve been aware of crypto having lurked on /g/ for many years, but I never actually got into it until autumn 2017, when I started mining on a gaming PC when I wasn’t using it. It seemed pretty fun, but I never really sent much of it, what with the high fees and lack of people to send it to really. This is the first crypto I’ve got into the community and been having fun sending tons of small amounts to everyone. It’s great fun to see someone tip you and it to appear in your wallet in a matter of seconds.

What did you first start mining on the gaming PC?
I think it was Ethereum actually. I had recently sold my 480 after the prices shot up from the Ethereum boom, and bought a 1070 with the proceeds, before they too shot up. I then started delving into the whattomine charts, finding out the best coins for my card, which is always a fun way to learn about more alt currencies by trying out their wallets and mining the most profitable ones. Of course, what with crypto being so volatile, you end up with tens of wallets installed and constantly having to swap between them. I then started mining on miningpoolhub for a few months, which auto swaps between the most profitable coins, until I started just mining TRTL full-time.

What’s your background? Sounds like you know your way around computers. Do you work or are you a student?
I’m a student, in my final year of a computer science degree, and am looking forward to getting a job writing software, though my recent experience with TRTL has made me perhaps look towards getting a job developing something blocdkchain related. It’s a fun field to be in with some very interesting tech being developed.

How long you been coding? Any special areas of focus?
I’ve only been programming since I was 17, so not that long. I’m a big fan of Haskell, a functional programming language, and I’m happy to write anything if it’s in that! I like exploring niche programming languages and always looking for a way to use fancy language features to write more concise code. Shoutout to @hai!

What’s been your contribution to the TurtleCoin community thus far? What projects have you worked on?
I think my first contribution was a typo fix! I just saw something in the wallet, which was spelt wrong, so I made a quick edit on the GitHub to fix it, and it was in the code shortly after. Then, after growing a bit more used to the software, I started hanging around the #help channel, and trying to help out the newbies with some common errors. Big thanks to @Turtle? who is constantly in there helping. I’m not sure if the dude ever sleeps. I thought it might help to compile some of the common issues into an FAQ, and now Bebop is doing some good work on the wiki to make it nice and presentable to users, so they can quickly find answers to their queries.

Next, I started looking more into the simplewallet code, a simple fix was changing the checkpoint message to yellow, as a few people thought they were done when they hit there, when it’s just a conformation of valid progress. Then I made a command, view_tx_outputs, which takes a hash and verifies which outputs belong to you, which is handy if your wallet is messing up but the blockchain is working fine. I also added an outgoing_transfers command to match the incoming_transfers command. Finally, I added mnemonic seed support to the wallet, which I think is pretty cool. It’s pretty easy to add features to simplewallet, so please, if anyone notices something missing, let us know or jump in and fix it yourself!

Finally, I setup a few quick scripts to allow the TurtleCoin project to be automatically built every time someone makes a commit or a pull request, on Windows, Mac, and Linux. This is pretty handy to check that we don’t break the build for people on other platforms.

What’s your favorite pizza?
A nice, thin based, spicy meat feast.

Any particular TurtleCoin projects or initiatives you’re working on right now where the reader can help? Any request for the reader or community, or opportunities for people to get involved if they want?
Right now I’m looking at stuck transactions. I’ve isolated the code which returns stuck transactions to the sender, and it’s a bit buggy. We also want to modify simplewallet to not let people send transactions that will get stuck in the first place.

We want to work on making the user-facing software as easy to use as possible, so it’s very easy for people to just download the software and get mining or sending TRTL. The GUI wallet is a great step towards this — thanks @therealcrypt! — but it’s also got a few bugs which are a bit frustrating. This is written in C# which is pretty friendly for newer users to jump in and start modifying the code of — please check the GitHub issues out if you’d like to help out with that.

C# Wallet — https://github.com/turtlecoin/desktop-xamarin

Wallet Issues — https://github.com/turtlecoin/desktop-xamarin/issues

The GitHub issues are great ways to find out what needs fixing in the code, and some fixes are as simple as a one-line change. There’s also the meta forum, where people can suggest direction for the project, or potential changes to the software. This is yet another good way to find things you can help out with.

Meta Forum — http://meta.turtlecoin.lol

We’re also considering rewriting the main codebase in Golang — so if you’re interested in that, please let us know in #dev_general! Speaking of that — lurking in all the dev channels is a great way to tell what’s going on and what other people are working on.

#Dev_General — https://discord.gg/4hJTfEW

If you’re not a programmer, but still want to get involved — no worries! We constantly have new users coming in, so hanging out in the #help and #mining channels and fixing newbies’ issues is a great way to improve the coin’s adoption. Furthermore, if you’ve got experience in art, graphics, advertising, writing, or anything like that, the #dev_marketing channel is all about making cool things to spread the word of TRTL, articles, posters, or even just posting about TRTL on websites like reddit or 4chan. Finally — TurtleCoin is meant to be a fun coin — so make some cool memes to spread!

#Help — https://discord.gg/4Mg3XBp

#Mining — https://discord.gg/9uCeDd7

#Dev_Marketing — https://discord.gg/T3hJGGq

When you’re not in class, studying, or hanging out in the TurtleCoin discord, what do you like to do for fun?
Playing video games with friends, watching anime and tv series, and reading the latest tech- and programming-related news. I also played my first game of DnD yesterday — very fun!

Mining some serious coin is what initially drew you to TurtleCoin. What’s made you stick around?
The thing that sets TurtleCoin apart from other cryptos for me is the community. It’s so easy to get involved, talk to the devs, look at what other folks are working on, and chat with some like-minded folks. It’s the first project where I’ve been able to easily get tons of my code into the codebase. Before this, I had only made a few tiny pull requests, both one-line fixes.

Where do you see TurtleCoin going?

I see TurtleCoin being similar to Doge in that it’s a bit of a meme coin, fun to tip other people with, but whilst Doge is very similar to BTC tech wise, Turtle has nice privacy features, lots of active development, and some interesting plans for the future. Above all it’s a community coin, and I think it has a good place as an introduction to cryptocurrencies for new users, with a friendly community, and an easy coin for new devs to contribute to. I’d love to see more new miners and developers getting involved and having some fun using TRTL!

A note from RockSteady:

Zach, Thank you for giving us your time and attention, you’ve really been blazing a trail since you got here and the work you’ve contributed has really helped push this project along. You’re a pleasure to work with, and an important part of this community; we’re happy to have you!

Out of the Shell #2: @Turtle?


Welcome to the second installment of Out of the Shell, a series of interviews with the developers, designers, and doers behind TurtleCoin. This is @gigantomachia and I’ll be your host.

As word continues to spread about TurtleCoin and its awesome community, more and more people are finding their way to our discord server (as of Feb. 17, there were 6,944 members). One of the attractive things about the TurtleCoin community is that it’s naturally evolved into a welcoming place for people steeped in coding and those new to crypto and unfamiliar with the command line. So, it’s no surprise that many of the the new members soon find themselves in the #help channel, whether to ask how to get a CLI wallet set up or what it means to sync the blockchain. And when they do, many are lucky to encounter @Turtle?. An early member of the TurtleCoin community, @Turtle? stands vigil in the #help channel, ready to assist even the most dumbfounded new member. @Turtle? lives in the UK, where he runs a computer-repair business.

How did you first learn about TurtleCoin?

I first learned about TurtleCoin from /biz/ on 4chan. I was in their very first thread only a few hours after it had been posted.

Sounds like you’re a regular on /biz/, so I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of posts on various altcoins. What was it about the TurtleCoin post that made you get involved in the community and contribute?

The first thing that got my attention was a crude MS Paint drawing, to be honest with you. This wasn’t a coin that was trying hard with fancy marketing and lots of figures on how the coin can work for you. It was much more humble than that, inviting people to come and contribute no matter their skill level. The whole thing seemed very friendly and community-based, which is very rare these days.

As for contributing I just shared what I knew about setting things up from my own experience. At the start, it was only Linux based unless you knew how to compile it for Windows, so a majority of us were running it via virtual machines. As time went on it became slightly easier to set it up on all platforms, but it wasn’t a one-click solution. I tried to help out with common issues that I saw being repeated if I knew how to solve them, even going so far as to private message individuals and edit their GPU configs for mining manually.

What’s your work background? Are you a developer IRL?

I’m not a developer, no. I have some background in tech support, but that’s it really.

What do you do for work?

I would say I’m self employed. I run a computer-repair business, but that’d be overselling myself lol. I mainly repair friends’, family and friends of friends’ computers. Not huge, but it’s enough to pay the bills.

What’s your favorite type of pizza?

New Yorker/Meat feast

How long have you been into crypto? Is TurtleCoin the first crypto community you’ve actively contributed to?

I mined bitcoin in the really early days as it was a fun thing at the time. That hard drive is dead/overwritten and lost, unfortunately. I got back into crypto last year after hearing how well bitcoin was doing from a friend and started mining again as a hobby a few months after. This is the first time I’ve actively contributed to a crypto community and also the first time I’ve really done anything in the crypto scene besides mining and trading.

Now that the project has progressed beyond those early days, what type of things are you working on in the TurtleCoin community?

I’m not a developer or anything, so I’m mainly still answering questions and helping new people get on their feet fairly quickly without too many headaches.

People who help new members are very important to the growth of the community. From your vantage point, what are the most common stumbling blocks that new people face in getting up and running with TurtleCoin?

The biggest stumbling block would have to be the main wallet being command line only, and also the miner being command line too. Most of it is fairly straight forward, where you just have to enter in text commands, but a good chunk of people have been spoilt with fancy graphics and buttons that just do the things for them, so it’s a change not a lot of people are familiar with.

I’m not a developer either, so even I’m intimidated by the command line. There are GUI wallets now though, right?

There has been two GUI wallets around since the first few weeks I think, although they require you to either be on Linux or compile it yourself (which most people looking for a GUI wallet won’t know how to do). There has been some really good work going on with the Xamarin wallet in the last month though and most Windows users can get it up and running in under a minute, which is really nice! (This doesn’t count the time spent downloading the blockchain, but it’s a start.)

When you’re not fixing computers or hanging out in the TurtleCoin #help channel, what do you like to do for fun?

I’m not really the social type so it’s mostly hanging out with a few friends at home while playing games/watching films or going down the rabbit hole that is the internet and wondering where the last 5 hours went.

Sounds familiar. You mentioned getting involved in the TurtleCoin community because it seemed genuine, didn’t try too hard to market itself as the next bitcoin, etc. What hopes do you have for TurtleCoin? Is this just a fun project, or do you see real opportunity here?

For me, personally, I see it as a fun project as I’m not a developer nor a major contributor. However, I also think that the project as a whole will go really far if it keeps up the current pace and morale. The amount of time and effort that has gone into a project only two months old is astonishing.

Do you have any request for the reader? Or suggestions for how people can get involved if they want? Any projects you’re working on that could use input?

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to join the discord. Nobody bites and people are more than willing to help you! If you would like to develop something for TurtleCoin, jump in and introduce yourself. Even if you think you have no skills, I’m sure there’s something you could get your hands on and we’re more than happy to help you along the way.

And if anyone wants to come in and help out with new people, you’re more than welcome to. Means I can put my feet up for a little bit. aha!

Anything else you’d like to add?

I’d just like to say thanks to the devs for all their hard work, thanks to the community for being so warm and inviting and thanks to you for allowing me to be interviewed.

@gigantomachia

A note from RockSteady:

Turtle?, you’ve been an amazing part of this community, and I personally consider you the safety net that keeps people coming back and turns their frown upside down when things break. You’ve done so much to help us, and from all of your teammates, we thank you for that, sincerely.
