This Week In TurtleCoin (June 3, 2018)

We passed 500,000 blocks this week, and learned that pinging 11,000 chat users is the quickest way to get to 10,000 chat users!

Gladiator Bot —“Gladiator Bot is now in full swing! He has a fully functional leveling system where turtles can fight to the death and earn experience to level up! At present, levels provide you with bragging rights. As time goes on, that will change. More importantly, wins and losses are now being tracked and can be displayed per user by typing *level in the colosseum! Gladiator Bot now also has his own wallet set up which in the coming days will be incorporated into his code to allow fight prizes to be won! The leaderboard code is coming together nicely and this could also spell the beginning of weekly tournaments! For my first JS project, there have obviously been hiccups and times when the bot has crashed but I thank you all for being patient with me as I fix these bugs and thank you still for pointing these bugs out to me! As always, I’m happy to receive suggestions for the bot and am taking them all on board.”— Rynem Continue Reading →

We’re Under Attack.. Here’s what’s happening, and how you can help.

The network is being hit with small denial of service attacks. Nothing is at risk, or being destroyed, it’s just annoying, and we need your help to stop it.

Whats the attack?

By spamming small transactions with lots of tiny inputs and high mixins, someone is knocking daemons offline that can’t handle the mixing of such a high number. Mainly it is affecting pools and public nodes. Windows daemons don’t seem to be affected. Linux and Mac daemons may see an increased number of segfaults. Continue Reading →

Weekend Roundup (May 6, 2018)

In this episode, Zpalmtree crashes half the network and we all try to keep eating like everything’s fine…

  • Network Blip — Services are returning to normal after this morning’s interruptions 🙂 Please check your daemons for uptime just in case.
  • Nest GUI — Jon’s “Nest” GUI gets an upgrade, with help from Zoidian! “With Nest featured on the official TurtleCoin website as the number one GUI wallet came a spike in downloads, and with that, a spike in dev motivation. Today’s 0.21 release of Nest brings, among other things, the possibility to change the fee and the mixin count, a button to transfer the full balance, confirmation dialogs for transfer and wallet creation, the app has its proper icon, and last but not least, thanks to zoidian, no more annoying, unnecessary, exasperating, infuriating walletd black window. Our windows users will know what I’m talking about…” — Jon

Two Turtles walk into a pizza joint… 
AceCore and Cyr0wned were recently at a new favorite pizza place out in their neighborhood, and I got a chance to talk to them about this new Turtles Pizza Shop We were in our favorite pizza place which opened recently. Always satisfied with their product we introduced them to the exciting world of cryptocurrency and especially Turtlecoin. The owner of the restaurant was so interested and agreed to take a photo to share with this awesome community. We look forward to pay our delicious turtle pizza with sweet, sweet Turtlecoin in the near future.” — AceCore Continue Reading →
