This week we opened our school of shitcoin artistry, added about 10 devs to the fold, and forgot to write about it until Monday. Hard work over here, folks. Don’t get none on ya! Check it out!
Zpalmtree’s “How To Fork TurtleCoin” Tutorial — “I had a really fun time this weekend live-blogging the process of making my own altcoin forked from TurtleCoin with Zpalmtree’s new guide for how to fork TurtleCoin properly.
Here’s the easiest way to fork TurtleCoin (or any Cryptonote currency)! We forked and lived to tell the tale!
Why would we want to be forked?
We were seeing a lot of projects that had either already forked us or were trying to create a fork of TurtleCoin, and often the people forking were afraid to ask for help once they launched, or would make rookie mistakes like removing the licenses from the code, so we thought it was a good idea to make a guide on how to execute a fork properly.
This week we learned how to talk trash one pixel at a time, started building dapps, got drunk and forgot to write the Roundup, and more!
TurtleCoin OneClickMiner — “I’m back online and the OneClickMiner for TurtleCoin is still alive! The code finally reached a point where I was able to commit it to the repo. New features include support for xmrig, dynamic or manual pool selection with several options and cleaner code under the surface. Before filing the new release (which will bundle the most recent miners) I need some testers for the current code to find and correct the last bugs. (Look for the correct folder structure!) Check out the GitHub repo and don’t hesitate to ping me on discord! See you!” — EncryptedUnicorn#7915
This week we got a crowdfunding platform, a cooler block explorer, a block bot monitor, and successfully used @here twice without losing a single user!
Turtle.land — “Hi, Turtle.Land is my project what I building in my free time… Its start as fork of explorer from Turtle-Github…. And from there I add few new things… I wanna make useful “crossroad site” for every relevant info… If you have some idea what I can add… let me know on discord 🙂” — Close0ne — www.turtle.land#7465
We are moving to static mixins, and we want to talk to you about what those words mean and why that’s important for your privacy.
In the beginning…
In the days before Cryptonote, there were coin mixing operations for Bitcoin users to hide the origin of their coins. The mixer would be a web app that shuffled bits and pieces of Bitcoin back and forth enough where it became slightly more difficult to figure out who sent what. Aside from being the perfect recipe for exit scams, these days, with companies like Chainalysis and the non-fungible nature of Bitcoin, this does very little to enhance privacy.
This week we added a new core contributor, deployed a new and improved block explorer, announced a new CLI wallet, made yet another web wallet, ripped out some code and stuff we probably shouldn’t be touching, and more…
And now for this week’s updates…
Zedwallet [Pictured Above] —Zedwallet is a new CLI wallet that replaces Simplewallet in TurtleCoin, and really any Cryptonote coin with very few modifications. In this wallet we have in-wallet fusions, transaction splitting, and an improved user experience. We recently did an in-depth article detailing the work that went into the new wallet with the creator himself.
Some of you may have noticed in the last few releases that Simplewallet has been looking a bit more polished. In fact, what you may not have noticed is the old Simplewallet is gone, and we’ve all been using the new Zedwallet since v0.4.2.

TurtleCoin turns 6 months old this week! — Web Wallets, GUI Wallets, Pay per Pixel and more!
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
