This Week In TurtleCoin (Jan 1, 2019)

Happy new year! It’s been a great year with you all, and I hope you’ve all made the resolution to mine more TRTL this year, because we’ve got a heck of an update for you! Read more about the upcoming PoW upgrade! 30 days!

Developer Updates

TurtlePay™ – I’m proud to say that the TurtlePay™ Public Beta launch occurred as promised just before Jan 1 2019 00:00:00 GMT. For those of you that have not been following the development of the project, there’s quite a bit of work going on behind the scene to make TurtlePay™ an awesome tool for developers. The service is FREE for everyone to use and the only fee is the standard network transaction fee of 0.10 TRTL.
TurtlePay™ is a payment processing service that is designed to help developers integrate TurtleCoin™ payments into their existing applications. By providing an easy to use set of tools to incorporate TurtleCoin™ payments into more applications, we hope to drive adoption of the technology to new heights.
Some people just want to write cool applications and develop new tools that allow them to use the technology without worrying about how it works, why it works, or keeping up with the latest and greatest features. Let us worry about the hard parts while you build awesome applications that use TurtleCoin™.
We’re looking forward to see what kind of cool things people start to build based on the platform. We’ve already identified a few tweaks to the current system that need to be made given some of the feedback a few people have provided.
In the next few weeks, I’ll be building out additional documentation on how to leverage the full power of TurtlePay™ and its related tools as well as adding additional features that will only make the platform better.
The platform is designed with scalability in mind and can easily grow as the needs of community grows. You can even run the platform yourself! Stay tuned for further updates! – IBurnMyCD

Mobile Wallet – A lot of people have been asking about a mobile wallet, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I’ve got a simple UI running on the phone, simply generating wallets and not much more yet.
I’m working on building out the main wallet functionality in a separate node package (https://github.com/zpalmtree/turtlecoin-wallet-backend) so it can be used for other things – think web wallets, native GUI wallets that don’t need any of the C++ code, etc. For that reason the repo will be pretty quiet until I’ve got that sorted out. Once the backend is done, it should just be a small matter of hooking it up and making everything look pretty, then off to the races.
This is going to be a native mobile wallet, so it’s not just a web wallet wrapped in an app. Furthermore, you’ll own your own private keys. This does mean you’ll have to scan the chain, which might be a bit heavy on CPU and battery life, but if you create a new wallet rather than importing, it shouldn’t be too bad. – Zpalm

TurtleCoin RPC Nim – This is a Nim wrapper for the TurtleCoin RPC APIs. It includes two modules, `walletd` for wallet JSON RPC commands and `turtlecoind` for the daemon HTTP and JSON RPC methods. There is also a simple example on github showing how to use this package. I have been learning Nim for about a month so let me know if there are any bugs! – DSanon

https://github.com/anonanonymous/turtlecoin-rpc-nim

TurtleCoin-Utils – I’m happy to report that the TurtleCoin node.js utilities are almost complete. This package is designed to provide native JS (and TypeScript — Thanks Z!) methods and calls that work in Node and in browser to create addresses, decode addresses, scan transactions for funds, create new transactions, and even generate the ring signatures necessary to create a valid transaction on the network. I’ll be working on improving (and in some cases creating) the documentation for the package in the coming days to make the entire package easier to use. – IBurnMyCD

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin-utils

Turtacus – Turtacus has been rapidly draining funds recently with very few donations coming in to support him. For that reason, I have begun looking at new ways for his prizes to be generated and funded. In coming time, I will be changing the way the tournament works. There will be an entry fee which will only allow those people who have entered, to make it onto the leaderboard. Anyone will be able to fight but only those entered will gain points for the tournament. On top of this, there will be a new points system for the tournament whereby winning will net you 2 points, losing will net you 1 point. In this way, participation is encouraged win or lose. The entry fee is yet to be decided but will likely be between 2500 and 5000 TRTL per person since this is an easy sum to acquire even just from tips during the week. The tournament prize will be 90% of the overall entry fees collected, with the other 10 % going to Turtacus’s prize fund which will be added to an occasional tournament prize pot. As you can tell, there are a lot of changes coming. It will take time but hopefully, it will encourage more fighters. – Rynem

New Turtle-Service API – To any developers who are currently developing apps with turtle – I would love if you would try out my new API  – It’s a replacement for turtle-service, and it gives a bit of a friendlier, REST based interface. If you are having trouble getting it working or have any queries, let me know and I’ll be happy to help. – zpalm

This Week In TurtleCoin (Oct 8, 2018)

Developer Community Updates

This week we had the extreme pleasure of being interviewed on Bitcoin Uncensored! Check out the interview! You’ll love it!

New Whitepaper! Proof of Synchronicity! Calling for participants!

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-labs/blob/master/Proof%20of%20Synchronicity.pdf

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-labs/issues/1

T.Scripta – Currently Reworking the UI and adding some new things! Check the current progress I’ve made. – Val

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-wallet-tscripta

WalletGreen / turtle-service rewrite – I’ve been spending the last few weeks rewriting the backend for turtle-service and zedwallet, called WalletGreen, from scratch.
The main motivation behind this is making the code much more readable, and extensible. This will allow us to more easily add new features, and possibly provide a richer API, so it’s easier to build a wallet, or other services which need to interact with transactions, such as payment gateways.
It’s also going to use a more portable file format, so it’s easier to open a wallet file in multiple different programming languages.
So far, I think I’ve got syncing transactions (both incoming and outgoing) working correctly. I’m now looking at implementing sending transactions. Once that’s done, there’s not actually that much left to do, aside from implementing a few methods to display the info we generate, such as the transactions we own.
As part of making the code easier to read, the past few days I’ve been migrating the codebase from C++11, to C++17. These are different standards of the C++ programming language, and support for a newer standard allows us to use all the cool new features available to make our code easier to read and write.
For any nerds out there, it’s also added support for GCC on OSX, and we now support a much wider array of compilers with our automated build suite. Hopefully this will make it easier to build TurtleCoin on less well known platforms that we don’t provide builds for.
Note that if you currently like to compile from source, you may need a newer version of your compiler to compile with these updates. The instructions on Github will be updated when this patch gets merged into development. -zpalm

WalletShell – With v0.3.3 release, WalletShell, the TRTL Gui Wallet has been declared stable and ready for public use to manage your TRTL assets.

Since its last introduction, WalletShell has fixes lots of known bugs & glitches,
performance & features enhancements works, and lots of new features, here are some of them:
– Address book, which can be looked-up when you send/transfer TRTL, help avoid mistakes on typing/pasting recipient address
– Fast transaction history listing/sorting/searching
– Keyboard only operation with help of keyboard shortcut & keyboard friendly inputs.
– Public node list, fetch daily from https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin-nodes-json/blob/master/turtlecoin-nodes.json.
For node operator: You don’t need to worry that your node domain name starts with “z”, node list order will be randomized everytime user accessing node setting page, so each nodes has a relatively fair chance to be on top of the list.
– Desktop Notification for Incoming Transfer.
– Fusion tx to help you optimize your wallet inputs/outputs
– WalletShell now have new Night/Dark theme, and is sets as default, you can still easily switch to Light/Green mode if you prefer
– Realtime node & network status monitoring: it will let you know and pause the sync process whenever the node you’re trying to connect can’t be reach, or when your machine disconnected from network.
– Utility: PaymentID and Integrated Address generator is there when you need it.
– Many more…

For more complete feature lists, please visit the repo here:
https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-wallet-electron

Get latest release here:
https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-wallet-electron/releases

TLDR; WalletShell, as of now, is the most featured packed Desktop GUI Wallet for TurtleCoin – Labaylabay

Local Turtle Explorer – After the previous post, I have redesign the layout of this project. At this point, you can run the local turtle explorer on your windows PC by just double clicking it. The daemon is running in the mode that other users can connect; in the future I am planning to add an option to choose to start the daemon in different mode. I would like to encourage everyone to run the local explorer on your machine as it helps the turtle network grow. I am also planning to combine the trtl wallet with this project. If anyone is interested in collaborating on this project, feel free to contact me on discord. – Sabo (Revolutionary)
https://github.com/turtlecoin/local-turtle-explorer.git

Turtle Simulator – Turtle Simulator is now out in alpha! (sorry mac users windows only at the moment!) Thank you to all the testers so far for your help. All ideas on how to make it a fun game are welcome, so come on down to the dev gaming channel and give me a shout! Thx to the community for this great opportunity! – Oiboo

Turtletor – This week I finally got around to updating the tor version of turtleturtle.org. I found a nifty docker image that I tweaked to host dark web sites from a docker container. Anyone who is interested can check out my github – crappyrules

https://github.com/crappyrules/turtletor

http://trtljx3ovmd7kjlc.onion/

TurtlePi – TurtlePi took a few steps forward the past few weeks. There is now a simple setup script included in the scripts folder of the TurtlePi repo on github that you can launch from your raspberry pi and it will automatically configure your pi with the latest TurtleCoin release and turtlecoind-ha. More work is in progress and I am hoping to have a base image ready for release here soon. – crappyrules

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlepi

TurtleEDU – We’re setting up TurtleEDU to help the community become more knowledgeable as users, and help people who want to know about dev stuff have an easy route to being a TRTL dev. Right now, in the chat if you type *student you get the student role and access to #edu-general and #edu-help channels. We’re teaching classes of real-world portable skills, but using TurtleCoin as the core example in each lesson, so the first thing you learn how to do when you become a developer is how to interact with our blockchain. Those users and devs who learned it here first will be our biggest recruiters and the biggest legitimizers of the project as they add their TRTL stuff to their resumes. The more we ingratiate ourselves to the young professionals who have ample time and thirst to learn, we will have no shortage of junior devs who are chomping at the bit to get the experience. Structuring this process as an at-your-own-pace online class seemed like a good way to achieve this.

Paper-Turtle – Paper Turtle is a printable paper wallet. It features a new frontend, and a better printing layout! This merges the two previous paper wallet ideas that were in place before. Thank you TurtleCoin community! – ChrisCrypto

https://github.com/turtlecoin/paper-turtle

Project Krang – This week was a mixed bag of things – Created a alpine docker container with just glibc, dumbinit and turtlecoind (brings the size down from 600MB to ~ 60MB. To increase performance, security and reduce noise. The dumbinit provides a better fail scenario that prevents zombie containers that don’t die, due to standard init resilience to death which is a problem for a container. – Got good with git, Cleaned up the repo, Started some new branches to do my work in, Did a squashed commit to combine all my commits into one before i do a Pull Request, and learning how to be a good git-izen. Thanks SoreGums for the pointers. – Tested Sajo’s TRTL-pycli out and submited an issue and a simple PR to correct a tiny issue. Thanks Sajo – Did a manual test run of the automation suite start up / teardown (phase 1 just a node on DO), which worked fine, THE NEXT STEPS are to complete krang.py with an TUI type interface and setup a docker container that it can live in and anyone with docker can launch quickly and easily with all pre-requisites in place. Slow and Steady but i am making progress now.

NOTE Looking forward to the Bitcoin Uncensored interview that is happening on the 3rd This week. I love the BU show and think that Chris DeRose would love to hear how us TRTL’s get down and dirty. I also setup a new Turtle Tank with an Eastern Short Neck Turtle… The sucker will outlive me most likely. See you all next week. – Slash-atello

https://github.com/4Reallive/krang/tree/Development

Check out Slash-atello on Bitcoin Uncensored talking about TurtleCoin Community and his story about joining the worlds most friendly street gang!

TurtleCoin Explorer – My re-imagining/expansion of the traditional block explorer has been up and running for about two weeks. Check it out at http://trtl.rocks. It uses a lot of newer technologies compared to the original block explorer, including Docker and Docker Compose, FeathersJS, GO, TimescaleDB/Postgres, Nuxt.js, Socket.IO, etc.

Sections that are mostly complete:

  • Stats Bar – The stats bar, located on the left side of the screen, gives you an up-to-date look at the network; data is updated every 30 seconds.
  • Nodes – The “Nodes” page allows you to see historical and live information for public nodes. The table provides current information and is updated every 30 seconds. The graph not only gives you the ability to look at historical information for as many nodes as you like (click on the checkbox next to the node name to add/remove them from the chart), but also allows you to compare different attributes (e.g. hashrate vs. difficulty) over a specified time period.
  • Pools – The “Pools” page does everything the “Nodes” page does but with pool data. In addition to the historical line graph and regularly updated table data, there are two pie charts which display current pool hashrates and miners. An additional feature is the ability to generate a mining config or command for a given pool. Clicking on the arrow, next to the pool you are interested in mining in, will open up a list of available ports for that particular pool. Chose a port which works for your mining rig and click the “Generate” button. In the config wizard, you first select the mining software you use and your OS, then enter the wallet address you want to mine to, and then verify the settings. Finally you are given a pool config and/or software command for that pool. You can copy the config or command to your clipboard, for easy copy/paste, by clicking on the “Copy” Button. While the functionality is complete, I need to add more mining software and their respective commands/configs. If you have the config/commands for software that isn’t on the list, or you have any config/commands additions/changes to add to the existing software please reach out!
  • My Pool Stats – The “My Pool Stats” page allows you to check your mining stats at all the pools we have in the database. Stats include your hashrates, recent payments, total amount paid, total hashes, and any remaining balance you have. You can either check once, by clicking the “Poll Once” button, or get updates every minute by clicking the “Poll Every Minute” button. By selecting the arrow, next to a pool name, you can see the most recent transaction data which includes the time of the transacton, the hash, and the amount. Additionally, you can also export the information for each pool. Simply select as many or all pools by clicking on the checkbox next to a pool name and press the download button. The payments data format still needs work, but all the information will be there.

Also, your wallet address is saved in a cookie whenever you enter it in either the pool config wizard or on the “My Pool Stats” page, making it easier to use the functionality on another page.

turtlecoin-rpc-go – For those who don’t know about this project, It is an RPC wrapper written in Golang while I was learning about it.. At that time I just wanted it to work.. after working on python and js wrappers for a while I have thought that my wrapper can be improved in a lot of ways and could also have a standard initialisation as other wrappers. So here I am with updated code and slight error handling which will be improved in future for sure. I also will update the documentation to give examples for starters. – rashedmyt

Turtacus – a way for players to battle each other to the death! Players fight until only one remains standing and the winner is issued an amount of TurtleCoin in reward for their win! With every win, comes an entry onto the leaderboard and on Sundays, the top three on the leaderboard are paid 10,000 TurtleCoin, 6,500 TurtleCoin and 3,500 TurtleCoin respectively. To increase your odds of winning, you can buy potions and stat points. These have now been reduced in cost.

Potions are down from 150 TurtleCoin each to 25 TurtleCoin each.

Stat Points are down from 300 TurtleCoin each to 100 TurtleCoin each.

The single battle prize is directly linked to Turtacus’s balance. The more contributions he receives, the higher his prizes will become! – Rynem

This Week In TurtleCoin (Sep 17, 2018)

Actually, It's GNU/TurtleCoin

Developer Updates

This week on Krang – I hit some walls with Rancher and decided to focus on a more traditional basic solution. This is a nice to have feature but can be included later. – Started on a simple python Script that will (Work in progress)

  1. Setup the Terraform pre-requisites for each provider on the client system (Complete)
  2. Initially Krang will support Digital Ocean and Linode (fexra’s request)
  3. Once checks and setup is complete Krang.py will be able to deploy a testnet onto the provisioned computer using a combination of ansible (config management) and docker (application) (Working on this week – 50% complete)
  4. Once done the TestNet can be destroyed (to be completed)
    NOTE: Initial release will focus on functionality, Flexibility (more providers with custom deployments) will be the focus after a working product is available.
    I will be working closely will Fexra this week as he is working on a Web Frontend to deploy, manage and monitor the TRTL stack. Seems like a great opportunity to TRTL power it up and add a frontend to Krang. I’m sure Fexra will include it in his Weekly update, right Uncle Rock! 🙂 -Slash-atello

https://github.com/4Reallive/krang

Pool Interview w/ Cision – The latest installment of the small pools series highlights Cision’s pool turtle.atpool.party which was one of our earliest pools. This series highlights smaller pools to help decentralize the hashrate to balance out mining power. – RockSteady

https://blog.turtlecoin.lol/archives/interview-w-cision-from-turtle-pool-party/

TurtleCoin v0.8.3 Released – This version is hopefully one of our most stable. Many improvements went into this release, and a lot of hard work went into it as well. This release lays the groundwork for a system that allows us to disconnect old clients from the network during fork upgrades to reduce the chances that legacy clients poison consensus. The fork at 800k was a little bit rocky at first, because we didn’t account for the mixin 7 transactions that would be in the mempool during the switch to mixin 3, which caused miners to be unable to create block 800,000. The solution was to custom-build a daemon that would only pump out empty blocks, and running that on a pool until we were sufficiently far away from block 800,000 where the legitimate block-producing, transaction-processing v0.8.3 could be used. Thanks for everyone’s time who stayed awake to watch the change and help us along. – RockSteady

http://latest.turtlecoin.lol

Turtle Network CLI – Turtle Network CLI is a command line interface extension that is meant to enable users to get updates on the turtle network without having to go to a website! New features have been added such as checking public nodes to see their status and URL, checking the transaction pool, and checking if your transaction has been confirmed. We are looking for more ideas on what should be added as well as user feedback in general. Pop in the discord and let us know what you think about our awesome and convenient program! – Xaz

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-network-cli

WalletShell Resurrection – LabayLabay has taken the time to update MacroShock’s Electron Wallet for us. I tried it out, and it sure is smooth. I highly recommend you try it out, it’s really cool and works on most platforms. – labaylabay (description written by rock)

TRTL-CLI-PY – I rewrote mrrovot’s TRTL CLI in python, so that I could add my own changes to it. It does everything TRTL CLI does, and more! Thanks to zpalm for helping me optimize it a bit, and big shoutout to Xaz and mrrovot who wrote this tool in the first place! Check it out 😉 –Sajo8

https://github.com/sajo8/trtl-cli-py

Turtacus – Every Sunday, the tournament prize of 20,000 trtl is paid out and it was a painstaking process of getting the leaderboard, typing out the tip to each person and adding in how many wins they had. It took 10-15 mins each time, time which with my new job, has been increasingly hard to come by! So now we have a new auto payout function. If I type *payout, the tip 3 are automatically awarded their prize, with their wins listed. Upon completion of tips, the leaderboard is reset and the tournament starts again. Reducing the entire payout cycle to seconds! Ahhhh sweet AI automation! –Rynem

T-Scripta – T-Scripta is a turtlecoin wallet made in C# .NET. If you are curious what T-Scripta means, it is short for Pond slider(Trachemys scripta). More to come to the wallet it currently has some issues here and there but nothing too major. – Val

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtle-wallet-tscripta

Shellnet – Shellnet has grown to 235 users and over 22K transactions!
The “latest transactions” panel is working again and now shows payment-IDs. Thanks to JerMe404, the webpage design has also improved significantly.
Join the shellnet discord to get the latest dev updates -dsanon
https://discord.gg/C2as5Yt

https://shellnet.pw

zedwallet – Only some small zedwallet updates this time – fixed a bug where auto saving wouldn’t occur whilst syncing, or when you ctrl+c out whilst syncing.
Hopefully it makes syncing a lot less frustrating if you’re having issues.

Also, there was another patch to make the node connection shut down a lot faster in the wallet – not a big thing but it should make shutting down a lot more responsive.

I meant to put this in a roundup a few weeks back, but zedwallet on Windows now has auto-complete support, to bring it up to par with Linux and Mac.
This works anywhere you have options of commands to pick, like the open menu, the main menu, and the ‘node not open’ menu. Saves you a tiny bit of time if you’re lazy 😉

Hopefully you’ve been liking the new menu system if you’re using 0.8.3 – note that you can type both the command names and the numbers, whatever takes the least effort 😀

Meanwhile, I’m working on something bigger which will take some time… stay tuned!

Web Wallet – Busy applying changes to masari’s webwallet so it will work for Turtle. This includes, a project restructure to dotnet core (done), re-write of the background caching process to handle large chains (done), re-work of the client side crypto functions to work for TurtleCoin (done), re-brand for turtle and a few other minor things. Am currently working on some improvements to how mempool Tx’s are handled in the web wallet and am adding some additional info to be displayed if there are unconfirmed fusion transactions. -WhassupZA (Discord), Dave (GitHub)

https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin-webwallet-js/tree/development

Nest – Version 0.34 of Nest, your GUI wallet, was released this week. It has been intensively tested, so you will not encounter the issues we had in 0.32. Please upgrade as it uses latest core 0.8.3, which is not compatible with previous versions. I think you will like the new address directory and wallet scan height features. If you are the maintainer of a fork of TurtleCoin, I made a guide to fork Nest for your coin. – Jon Nest

Curious re whether my contented VPS resources were negatively impacting my pool’s luck, I migrated the pool to Google Kubernetes Engine (recipe forthcoming). 800Kpocalypse aside, the pool does _feel_ luckier on GKE, and I now hope to sleep (more) soundly at night, and work on more Geeky Cookbook recipes (https://geek-cookbook.funkypenguin.co.nz)
