Decred Journal – August 2018

Note: you can read this on GitHub (link), Medium (link) or old Reddit (link) to see all the links.


dcrd: Version 1.3.0 RC1 (Release Candidate 1) is out! The main features of this release are significant performance improvements, including some that benefit SPV clients. Full release notes and downloads are on GitHub.
The default minimum transaction fee rate was reduced from 0.001 to 0.0001 DCkB. Do not try to send such small fee transactions just yet, until the majority of the network upgrades.
Release process was changed to use release branches and bump version on the master branch at the beginning of a release cycle. Discussed in this chat.
The codebase is ready for the new Go 1.11 version. Migration to vgo module system is complete and the 1.4.0 release will be built using modules. The list of versioned modules and a hierarchy diagram are available here.
The testnet was reset and bumped to version 3.
Comments are welcome for the proposal to implement smart fee estimation, which is important for Lightning Network.
@matheusd recorded a code review video for new Decred developers that explains how tickets are selected for voting.
dcrwallet: Version 1.3.0 RC1 features new SPV sync mode, new ticket buyer, new APIs for Decrediton and a host of bug fixes. On the dev side, dcrwallet also migrated to the new module system.
Decrediton: Version 1.3.0 RC1 adds the new SPV sync mode that syncs roughly 5x faster. The feature is off by default while it receives more testing from experienced users. Other notable changes include a design polish and experimental Politeia integration.
Politeia: Proposal editing is being developed and has a short demo. This will allow proposal owners to edit their proposal in response to community feedback before voting begins. The challenges associated with this feature relate to updating censorship tokens and maintaining a clear history of which version comments were made on. @fernandoabolafio produced this architecture diagram which may be of interest to developers.
@degeri joined to perform security testing of Politeia and found several issues.
dcrdata: mainnet explorer upgraded to v2.1 with several new features. For users: credit/debit tx filter on address page, showing miner fees on coinbase transaction page, estimate yearly ticket rewards on main page, cool new hamburger menu and keyboard navigation. For developers: new chain parameters page, experimental Insight API support, endpoints for coin supply and block rewards, testnet3 support. Lots of minor API changes and frontend tweaks, many bug fixes and robustness improvements.
The upcoming v3.0 entered beta and is deployed on Check out the new charts page. Feedback and bug reports are appreciated. Finally, the development version v3.1.0-pre is on
Android: updated to be compatible with the latest SPV code and is syncing, several performance issues are worked on. Details were posted in chat. Alpha testing has started, to participate please join #dev and ask for the APK.
iOS: backend is mostly complete, as well as the front end. Support for devices with smaller screens was improved. What works now: creating and recovering wallets, listing of transactions, receiving DCR, displaying and scanning QR codes, browsing account information, SPV connection to peers, downloading headers. Some bugs need fixing before making testable builds.
Ticket splitting: v0.6.0 beta released with improved fee calculation and multiple bug fixes.
docs: introduced new Governance section that grouped some old articles as well as the new Politeia page.
@Richard-Red created a concept repository sandbox with policy documents, to illustrate the kind of policies that could be approved and amended by Politeia proposals. 8 contributors added and 4 removed, including 2 advisors (discussion here). is a brand new website that shows the most accurate DCR market data. Clean design, mobile friendly, no javascript required.
Dev activity stats for August: 239 active PRs, 219 commits, 25k added and 11k deleted lines spread across 8 repositories. Contributions came from 2-10 developers per repository. (chart)


Hashrate: went from 54 to 76 PH/s, the low was 50 and the new all-time high is 100 PH/s. BeePool share rose to ~50% while F2Pool shrank to 30%, followed by at 5% and Luxor at 3%.
Staking: 30-day average ticket price is 95.6 DCR (+3.0) as of Sep 3. During the month, ticket price fluctuated between a low of 92.2 and high of 100.5 DCR. Locked DCR represented between 3.8 and 3.9 million or 46.3-46.9% of the supply.
Nodes: there are 217 public listening and 281 normal nodes per Version distribution: 2% at v1.4.0(pre) (dev builds), 5% on v1.3.0 (RC1), 62% on v1.2.0 (-5%), 22% on v1.1.2 (-2%), 6% on v1.1.0 (-1%). Almost 69% of nodes are v.1.2.0 and higher and support client filters. Data snapshot of Aug 31.


Obelisk posted 3 email updates in August. DCR1 units are reportedly shipping with 1 TH/s hashrate and will be upgraded with firmware to 1.5 TH/s. Batch 1 customers will receive compensation for missed shipment dates, but only after Batch 5 ships. Batch 2-5 customers will be receiving the updated slim design.
Innosilicon announced the new D9+ DecredMaster: 2.8 TH/s at 1,230 W priced $1,499. Specified shipping date was Aug 10-15.
FFMiner DS19 claims 3.1 TH/s for Blake256R14 at 680 W and simultaneously 1.55 TH/s for Blake2B at 410 W, the price is $1,299. Shipping Aug 20-25.
Another newly noticed miner offer is this unit that does 46 TH/s at 2,150 W at the price of $4,720. It is shipping Nov 2018 and the stats look very close to Pangolin Whatsminer DCR (which has now a page on asicminervalue).

Integrations joined the list of stakepools for a total of 16.
Australian CoinTree added DCR trading. The platform supports fiat, there are some limitations during the upgrade to a new system but also no fees in the "Early access mode". On a related note, CoinTree is working on a feature to pay household bills with cryptocurrencies it supports.
Three new OTC desks were added to exchanges page at
Two mobile wallets integrated Decred:
Reminder: do your best to understand the security and privacy model before using any wallet software. Points to consider: who controls the seed, does the wallet talk to the nodes directly or via middlemen, is it open source or not?




Targeted advertising report for August was posted by @timhebel. Facebook appeal is pending, some Google and Twitter campaigns were paused and some updated. Read more here.
Contribution to the @decredproject Twitter account has evolved over the past few months. A #twitter_ops channel is being used on Matrix to collaboratively draft and execute project account tweets (including retweets). Anyone with an interest in contributing to the Twitter account can ask for an invitation to the channel and can start contributing content and ideas there for evaluation by the Twitter group. As a result, no minority or unilateral veto over tweets is possible. (from GitHub)


For those willing to help with the events:
BAB: Hey all, we are gearing up for conference season. I have a list of places we hope to attend but need to know who besides @joshuam and @Haon are willing to do public speaking, willing to work booths, or help out at them? You will need to be well versed on not just what is Decred, but the history of Decred etc... DM me if you are interested. (#event_planning)
The Decred project is looking for ambassadors. If you are looking for a fun cryptocurrency to get involved in send me a DM or come talk to me on Decred slack. (@marco_peereboom, longer version here)


Decred Assembly episode 21 is available. @jy-p and lead dcrwallet developer @jrick discussed SPV from Satoshi's whitepaper, how it can be improved upon and what's coming in Decred.
Decred Assembly episodes 1-21 are available in audio only format here.

Community Discussions

Community stats:
Comm systems news:
After another debate about chat systems more people began testing and using Matrix, leading to some gardening on that platform:
Reddit: substantive discussion about Decred cons; ecosystem fund; a thread about voter engagement, Politeia UX and trolling; idea of a social media system for Decred by @michae2xl; how profitable is the Obelisk DCR1.
Chats: cross-chain trading via LN; plans for contractor management system, lower-level decision making and contractor privacy vs transparency for stakeholders; measuring dev activity; what if the network stalls, multiple implementations of Decred for more resilience, long term vision behind those extensive tests and accurate comments in the codebase; ideas for process for policy documents, hosting them in Pi and approving with ticket voting; about SPV wallet disk size, how compact filters work; odds of a wallet fetching a wrong block in SPV; new module system in Go; security of allowing Android app backups; why PoW algo change proposal must be specified in great detail; thoughts about NIPoPoWs and SPV; prerequisites for shipping SPV by default (continued); Decred vs Dash treasury and marketing expenses, spending other people's money; why Decred should not invade a country, DAO and nation states, entangling with nation state is poor resource allocation; how winning tickets are determined and attack vectors; Politeia proposal moderation, contractor clearance, the scale of proposals and decision delegation, initial Politeia vote to approve Politeia itself; chat systems, Matrix/Slack/Discord/RocketChat/Keybase (continued); overview of Korean exchanges; no breaking changes in vgo; why project fund burn rate must keep low; asymptotic behavior of Decred and other ccs, tail emission; count of full nodes and incentives to run them; Politeia proposal translations and multilingual environment.
An unusual event was the chat about double negatives and other oddities in languages in #trading.


DCR started the month at USD 56 / BTC 0.0073 and had a two week decline. On Aug 14 the whole market took a huge drop and briefly went below USD 200 billion. Bitcoin went below USD 6,000 and top 100 cryptos lost 5-30%. The lowest point coincided with Bitcoin dominance peak at 54.5%. On that day Decred dived -17% and reached the bottom of USD 32 / BTC 0.00537. Since then it went sideways in the USD 35-45 / BTC 0.0054-0.0064 range. Around Aug 24, Huobi showed DCR trading volume above USD 5M and this coincided with a minor recovery.
@ImacallyouJawdy posted some creative analysis based on ticket data.

Relevant External

StopAndDecrypt published an extensive article "ASIC Resistance is Nothing but a Blockchain Buzzword" that is much in line with Decred's stance on ASICs.
The ongoing debates about the possible Sia fork yet again demonstrate the importance of a robust dispute resolution mechanism. Also, we are lucky to have the treasury.
Mark B Lundeberg, who found a vulnerability in atomicswap earlier, published a concept of more private peer-to-peer atomic swaps. (missed in July issue)
Medium took a cautious stance on cryptocurrencies and triggered at least one project to migrate to Ghost (that same project previously migrated away from Slack).
Regulation: Vietnam bans mining equipment imports, China halts crypto events and tightens control of crypto chat groups.
Reddit was hacked by intercepting 2FA codes sent via SMS. The announcement explains the impact. Yet another data breach suggests to think twice before sharing any data with any company and shift to more secure authentication systems.
Intel and x86 dumpsterfire keeps burning brighter. Seek more secure hardware and operating systems for your coins.

This is why I love Phore

This is an excerpt from a conversation that took place on Phore’s Telegram group between a regular community member called Arshmalloww, and one of Phore’s lead dev called Moonshot.
I thought it was a very interesting and insightful conversation, so I decided to put it here on Reddit for everyone to be able to read and learn from it. I have highlighted the part that I consider to be the most interesting.
I only edited a few bits in order to make this more readable and convenient.
Enjoy ;)

Phore is a fork of PIVX with pretty much the same privacy and scalability features, with the theoretical max of 154 transactions per second (which comes close to PayPal average of 193 transactions per second). However, PIVX has a plan proposed for scalability: Bulletproof’s author Jonathan Bootle has joined project’s team and expects 90 to 95% private transaction’s size reduction.
PIVX got their code from Dash which got it from Bitcoin. So does that mean that there is no difference between any of these coins?
And the main one is bitcoin. I’m not a tech expert here obviously, but what’s driving value for phore or pivx or dash when they all copy bitcoin?

No, it does not mean they are all the same. It means that we use some portion of the code the other project developed before we started.
For example, bitcoin has 10 minute blocks and a 1MB block size, and Phore has 1 minute blocks and a 2MB block size, so basic math would show you that we have 20x the capacity of bitcoin in terms of how many transactions we can process.
Many projects have different visions and are optimized for those visions. You cannot optimize one blockchain for every use case (well, I think Phore can, but shhh).

How can you have 20x capacity compared to bitcoin ? Why wouldn’t bitcoin have that much capacity or what would prevent it ?

I'm talking about how many transactions fit in a block and how many blocks are produced in a given time.

Your block size is twice as large and produce 10x faster...


What’s stopping bitcoin from doubling its block size if it’s just code?

LOL talk to bitcoin cash about that. They did so, bitcoin chose not to, they are trying to scale in other ways like Lightning Networks.

In your expert opinion why wouldn’t they do that ?

First, bitcoin is very conservative as a development community.
Second, their miners are really in control of what happens, and they have no incentive to do so.
Third, they are absolutely against hard forks, they firmly believe in having every previous bitcoin client still work, so any change that requires a hard fork is something they do not want to do.

Okay so they don’t have incentive because they won’t be as profitable by increasing the block size. I’m trying to connect this...increased block size reduces profits.

Yes, at least that is one of their obstacles to making large changes.

Because ?

Because the fees for bitcoin are an open market, if blocks are full, miners can charge more for a transaction. If blocks are empty they have to take whatever people are willing to pay.

Okay. That makes sense.

If they supported changes that made capacity 10-20-30x larger, they would be cutting into their own revenues.
Dash is proof of work like bitcoin, but PIVX and Phore are proof of stake. This is a very large fundamental difference. Dash created a new governance system that is very similar to what PIVX and Phore have, all of which make the development funding decentralized and community driven. Bitcoin does not have this at all.
Dash also has privacy technology, but it is based on RingCT which is very different than zerocoin that Phore and PIVX use. RingCT is a coin mixing technology that takes your transaction and mixes it with other ones in successive rounds to make it hard to determine how much was paid and from which account to which other account. But it is all recorded on the blockchain, just in these mixed rounds of things bouncing around and having combined signatures.
Zerocoin is completely different, it works by having people mint their PHR into zPHR in standard denominations, like 1 PHR, 5 PHR, 100 PHR, etc. And when you mint them you get a secret key for it, but otherwise no one can tell it belongs to you, if they look at the blockchain.
It is a bit like if you go to a casino with cash that has serial numbers on it, but you exchange it for casino chips of those different denominations. They can no longer trace that cash to you.
Later, you can "redeem" your secret key and spend the zPHR just like regular PHR, sending it to any valid PHR address, but the blockchain just records it coming from the accumulator pool of that denomination. There is nothing on the blockchain linking you to that transaction.
This uses a cryptographic technique known as a zero knowledge proof, which means that absolutely no one in the network has enough information to trace the entire transaction. That's the basics of it anyway.
PIVX integrated zerocoin into Dash's codebase and replaced the RingCT with that, and we leverage that same technology for privacy. However PIVX really is pretty much *all* about being a privacy coin, and Phore is about much more than that. To Phore, privacy is just one of many features we are delivering and plan to deliver.

You also have marketplace and smart contracts like ethereum, right?

Yes and we added SegWit which yes doubles our capacity over PIVX, but really that is not the reason we added it, at all.

Segregated witness. Isn’t that what the controversy over bitcoin was about last year, in terms of splitting the code and increasing block size?

Yes. We did it to solve something called transaction malleability, which means that in some cases transactions can change after they happen. The reason we needed to solve that is because we are implementing a sidechain concept which we have started to refer to more as sharding. And it would be less secure and more difficult to do that if we had to worry about past transactions being changed.
Sharding will allow us to essentially add other blockchains onto the main Phore blockchain. They will operate independently but will interface with the main Phore blockchain too. The first of these will be a smart contracts blockchain similar to Ethereum. But I don't think it will be the last. We could also add a decentralized storage blockchain, or a zerocoin blockchain (if we wanted to remove that from the main blockchain), or really any kind of blockchain we wanted to add.
Each of them could be optimized for their purpose without having to worry about tradeoffs on the other blockchains. We could add one that can do 10,000 transactions per second, or one that supports delegated proof of stake for people who wanted to do cold staking, or just about anything. We could even develop shards for other blockchains, that run on the Phore blockchain. There is more than that coming, but that's a good general direction.
And then there are the decentralized applications. Bitcoin, Dash, PIVX--are they doing any of that? Not really. PIVX is developing a decentralized exchange that can trade zPIV. That's the closest I know of.
We already have a fully decentralized marketplace where you can buy and sell physical and digital goods and services for Phore. I have listings up for Amazon and Starbucks gift cards, so you can spend Phore on anything you want at Amazon or Starbucks. And that is just scratching the surface.
We will be implmementing decentralized crowdfunding next. Which will be a censorship resistant and decentralized way to raise funds for many things.

Dude my head is spinning

Haha. People who know me know that I tend to give quite thorough answers to questions.

That’s a lot of info I appreciate it . I know that the majority of people can’t contemplate any of this, and price action is really a function of supply and demand, but I’m tempted to buy another masternode at this price. One thing I like is that you didn’t ICO, and you’re based in the US.

We're based all over the place really, I'm in the US as is Julian, our lead developer. But we also have team members in the UK, Canada, Japan, etc. And we're incorporated in Gibraltar. We never had an ICO or premine, it all originated as an airdrop of KryptKoin back in 2014.

Oh yeah real quick, why do people look down at premined coins?

Well, personally I don't, if it's reasonable. To answer your question, I think it's two things:
  1. They think of it as a cash grab by the founders/developers
  2. Because of #1, it can lead to the ownership of the coin as being more centralized because so much of it on a percentage basis is owned by the team.

Got it ! That’s make sense.
Do you think that the current market price of phore is up to its true intrinsic value ?

I do not comment on price. I focus on delivering as much value as I can, and I expect the price will ultimately reflect that value. I leave it up to the market to decide what that value is. My job is to make it valuable by having it be something people want to own and use.

Thanks a lot!

Amazon Mechanical Turk [US]
This site is a bit different from your typical beer money site. This is a bit more professional. You work for "requesters" and they approve or reject your submitted content called "hits."

• Don’t use mturk without having turkopticon installed. It’s a browser add-on that allows workers to post reviews about requesters and gives you a good idea of whether or not to attempt a HIT based on the requester’s reputation.
• Only do hits that pay at least 10¢/minute. Mturk grind forum and /hitsworthturkingfor are good places to check for worthy hits.
• It is better to return a hit (it will not negatively impact you) than submit if you are unsure whether the requester will approve it.
Sites to Avoid: Definitely DO NOT post these.
Paidverts shady owner, sketchy site. Keep doing debt swaps(cash to BAP). Do not post.
DigitalGeneration put a bitcoin miner and spyware in their software. Never paid out. Avoid at all costs. If you’ve downloaded it before, do a virus scan.
Neobux isn’t REALLY a scam, but they operate as a pyramid scheme. There’s money to be made online, but it’s definitely not there.
Locket used to be good, but not anymore - guess they realized that their platform won't be profitable enough, if at all. They did pay out all the users, but you won't be making money with this app any more.
MarketGlory does pay out, but the pay is absolutely ridiculous. The only way to make a decent amount of money is to have a lot of referrals, and referral whoring on this subreddit WILL result in a permanent ban.7
IPUServices stopped paying out altogether. No response to questions regarding payouts. Avoiding is recommended.
Cash2Refer Does not pay out and awards way too much for merely referring people. $5 per visit? Come on.
MindSumo Not actually a beermoney site, only spam in this sub.
G2A Scam/sells stolen keys
Generic news sites that pay you ridiculous amounts to read an article (two euros??): Common sense should take care of this, but in case it doesn’t, it’s always a scam. Site is usually hosted somewhere in Eastern Europe, and there is never a payout.
Free bitcoin sites/"faucets"(THIS INCLUDES QOINPRO): Not referring to those video-viewing/task sites (although they’re still paying fragments of a penny). I’m talking about sites that give you 0.000001BTC to fill a captcha (, dailybitcoins). Admittedly many beermoney sites pay low, but don’t even bother with these.
Also: Bitcoin mining is NO LONGER PROFITABLE. If you're really so keen on getting bitcoins, doing so through an exchange is your best option.

Building Student Desktop - Value for Money - i5 6500 vs i5 4590 - UK/GB

Build Help:

Hi there. First post, and I hope I can receive some advice on a pc I am going to build.  
Quick Context: Engineering Student in Level 5 Of study, starting my 3rd Year in Study (Foundation -> 1st Year -> 2nd Year {Currently Here}), and I need to upgrade my existing computer, with a budget of less than £250.  
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.  
I Need a quicker computer (than currently on hand) for software simulation and Microsoft Office work for student tasks such as projects, assignments and research. Including MatLab, Eclipse, FEMM, AUTODESK, EDS and more.  
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)  
Not of top priority, but I currently have a 7970, and a friend is offering a gtx 970 (2nd hand) for £125. I am fine with 1080p 60fps med settings on any game (I like games such as pillars of eternity, Divinity 2 original sin, LoL, but rarely play as much as i used to due to studying.)  
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?  
£250, a little more if fine, but the less the better  
In what country are you purchasing your parts?  
UK/Great Britain  
Current Parts:  
CPU - AMD 860k @ 4.3GHz (Purchased 2nd hand)  
Fan - Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro (Purchased 2nd Hand, came only with am3 socket) MoBo - Gigabyte F2A68HM-HD2 (Purchased 2nd hand - exdisplay)  
RAM - 2 * 4GB Patriot PSD1600k PC3-12800 1600MHZ DDR3 (Purchased New)  
GPU - Sapphire 7970 3G D5 Boost (Purchased 2nd Hand)  
HDD - KingDian 128gb SSD (Purchased 2nd Hand) - WD 1TB Passport Ext. Drive(Gifted, New)(I Prefer my big data to be portable)  
PSU - EVGA 600W 80+ (Purchased New)  
Case - CiT Barricade mATX (Purchased New)

There are 2 Options:

MoBo - MSI H110M ECO - £39.48 -  
Ram - Need DDR4 for the new platform. Considering Going to Computer Exchange (CeX) and looking for:8gb ddr4 stick - £32 a stick- - Hopefully I can go in store and pick up a couple sticks that aren't ECC server sticks at my local store.  
Provide any additional details you wish below.  
Re-using the mATX case, psu and my hdd.  
Things I like in a computer - Quiet, cool, powerful.  
I understand my current case is complete trash, so if someone who knows more could recommend a case (within the budget) a case that could contribute to keeping my pc cool, and quiet. I've noticed during the summer my pc will act as a radiator and my room temperature peaked at an astonishing (for me, here in the UK) 39 Degrees. My student room isn't well ventilated, and while it may be great this winter coming, I don't want to experience the sweat fest that the last few summers have been with this pc.  
Also, a replacement GPU isn't an immediate grab, but I think i'll be in the market for something soon, as my 7970 was purchased 2nd hand from a bitcoin miner, and now after a few years of use, is slowly starting to die, as random screen tearing, sudden display crashes, crazy flashing during running fullscreen programs, even such as youtube, which never happened when i first got the card.  
If someone could squeeze something more powerful and modern into the budget along with the new cpu/mobo/ram combo. I mentioned the 970 my friend is offering, but I don't know if its worth it, or what I need. If it helps, if i could've found a New RX 570 at RRP (UK around £180) I would've gotten that, and gone over budget.  
Don't know if I left anything out, but it might be worth mentioning I have no brand loyalty, or favourites on Intel vs AMD, or nVidia vs radeon (I can't afford to). Just the best value for money, and I'm not afraid of second hand purchases, which is why you will see so much come up through what i've listed.  
If anyone needs more information, just ask and i'll try to respond within 24hrs.
Thanks in advance to all the help;
