Deploying global .trtl resolvers with docker

Ok, been a while away, but as it is Winter now i think i can find some inside time, cold blooded and all that. I was excited to see the trtl resolver announcement and went to work straight away deploying them around the world onto 6 droplets globally.

I put together a Dockerfile that uses node:lts-alpine as ibmcd documentation is amazing as usual. I added some comments at the top of the file on how to build and run. The comments will assist in building the image, running the container and testing that the resolver can actually resolve by hitting it with a GET request using curl.

Not seeing much on my resolvers in the way of logs (apart from bots hitting the port looking for services that don’t exist, sneaky guys). Maybe i’m missing something, if anyone wants to do some tests or knows something i don’t know hit me up.

Looking forward to see what is going to develop out of this service, I’m sure it will make life easier for a lot of TRTLs.

This was a good task to get back into the game. I have another little project in the works also, so stay tuned for that. Another thing to make life a bit easier. Plenty to do in TRTL town. – Slash-atello

Divine – A TUI Wallet for TurtleCoin

Divine – A TUI Wallet for TurtleCoin

“I just began work on Divine: a TUI wallet for TurtleCoin utilizing node.js. I’m utilizing wallet-backend-js for the wallet operations and blessed for the terminal API. My goal is to make this a responsive, easy to use “”command line””-like wallet with full mouse support. Of course it will also be able to receive commands by keyboard as well.

I’d love for somebody to help me out with the ASCII art. If anybody can help let me know.” – ExtraHash

turtlecoin-wallet-backend-js

Been doing some work on the JS wallet backend this week. The main thing is that I’ve added fusion transactions. Extra has started making a wallet using the backend, which has given some valuable feedback on the docs, and other things, so thank you extra.

I’ve also started work on adding an auto optimize feature, which will keep your wallet fully optimized with no input from you or the wallet developer – it will automatically send fusion transactions whenever needed to ensure you’re always good to go. Of course, this can be disabled, if the developer wants to handle optimization themselves.

On another note, I’ve been looking at the feasability of rewriting TonChan in Qt with C++. This will of course take quite a while, but may eek out a bit of syncing performance. It seems there’s a large performance loss from passing data from JavaScript, to J***, to C++, and back again, in the realm of 10x. Or, I’m doing something stupid. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
So far I’ve stripped out all the code aside from everything needed for the C++ WalletBackend. That sounds like an easy job.. but takes an age when everything is linked to a huge module, and you have to shuffle stuff around.
Anyway, that’s done, so hopefully I can try compiling it into a library I can chuck into a Qt app, and can get some initial numbers on sync speed, so I can tell if this is worth persuing.” Zpalm

Rig Of The Week!

Rackmount SBC Cluster

There are 14 NanoPi Fire3 boards in the front row with 10 OrangePi One+ boards in the second row. Six fans are situated at the front of the rack and blow air past all the boards. The boards use hexagonal standoffs for positioning and are also supported by the ethernet cables on the bottom that feed through the plexiglass.

Try to be mindful of power consumption if you can. I mainly view TRTL as a hobby mining project with some good potential upside but I think its important to be mindful of energy consumption nevertheless.

I am a low-power computing enthusiast and a fan of ARM architecture Approximately 24 kh/s give or take. Each NanoPi Fire3 produces about 1.2kh/s and each OrangePi is producing about 700 h/s. I’m hoping to optimize hashrates more in the future as more stable OS options become available for the OrangePi boards.

Bounties!

  • 4/8/2019 23:00:19 100 “I am Offering a Bounty of 100 TRTL if you add a ‘Pay with TRTL’ button to your website (just 2 lines of code)
  • 4050000 “Trezor T and turtle-services integration

What: Integrate popular hardware wallet from SatoshiLabs, Trezor T with Trezor’s backend and turtle-services in order to create and encrypt, decrypt wallet and sign transactions with the device.

Why: Trezor T is fully open-source hardware wallet project with it’s own responsible-disclosure program. As hard as it is to get added into Trezor’s frontend app wallet.trezor.io, one of the unofficial requirements is to have Trezor integrated in project’s application first.

We might have a guy who would do it so here comes a softcap for the job:

Soft-cap: 10 000 000 TRTL

+1 000 000 from @Elkim | trtl.urmom.lol

  • 2 050 000 from @TurtlesHill
  • 1 000 000 from @LeoCuvée | cuveetrtl.czech.cloud | cuveetrtl.czech.cloud

Total: 4 050 000 TRTL” Elkim
