Syscoin Platform’s Great Reddit Scaling Bake-off Proposal

Syscoin Platform’s Great Reddit Scaling Bake-off Proposal

https://preview.redd.it/rqt2dldyg8e51.jpg?width=1044&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=777ae9d4fbbb54c3540682b72700fc4ba3de0a44
We are excited to participate and present Syscoin Platform's ideal characteristics and capabilities towards a well-rounded Reddit Community Points solution!
Our scaling solution for Reddit Community Points involves 2-way peg interoperability with Ethereum. This will provide a scalable token layer built specifically for speed and high volumes of simple value transfers at a very low cost, while providing sovereign ownership and onchain finality.
Token transfers scale by taking advantage of a globally sorting mempool that provides for probabilistically secure assumptions of “as good as settled”. The opportunity here for token receivers is to have an app-layer interactivity on the speed/security tradeoff (99.9999% assurance within 10 seconds). We call this Z-DAG, and it achieves high-throughput across a mesh network topology presently composed of about 2,000 geographically dispersed full-nodes. Similar to Bitcoin, however, these nodes are incentivized to run full-nodes for the benefit of network security, through a bonded validator scheme. These nodes do not participate in the consensus of transactions or block validation any differently than other nodes and therefore do not degrade the security model of Bitcoin’s validate first then trust, across every node. Each token transfer settles on-chain. The protocol follows Bitcoin core policies so it has adequate code coverage and protocol hardening to be qualified as production quality software. It shares a significant portion of Bitcoin’s own hashpower through merged-mining.
This platform as a whole can serve token microtransactions, larger settlements, and store-of-value in an ideal fashion, providing probabilistic scalability whilst remaining decentralized according to Bitcoin design. It is accessible to ERC-20 via a permissionless and trust-minimized bridge that works in both directions. The bridge and token platform are currently available on the Syscoin mainnet. This has been gaining recent attention for use by loyalty point programs and stablecoins such as Binance USD.

Solutions

Syscoin Foundation identified a few paths for Reddit to leverage this infrastructure, each with trade-offs. The first provides the most cost-savings and scaling benefits at some sacrifice of token autonomy. The second offers more preservation of autonomy with a more narrow scope of cost savings than the first option, but savings even so. The third introduces more complexity than the previous two yet provides the most overall benefits. We consider the third as most viable as it enables Reddit to benefit even while retaining existing smart contract functionality. We will focus on the third option, and include the first two for good measure.
  1. Distribution, burns and user-to-user transfers of Reddit Points are entirely carried out on the Syscoin network. This full-on approach to utilizing the Syscoin network provides the most scalability and transaction cost benefits of these scenarios. The tradeoff here is distribution and subscription handling likely migrating away from smart contracts into the application layer.
  2. The Reddit Community Points ecosystem can continue to use existing smart contracts as they are used today on the Ethereum mainchain. Users migrate a portion of their tokens to Syscoin, the scaling network, to gain much lower fees, scalability, and a proven base layer, without sacrificing sovereign ownership. They would use Syscoin for user-to-user transfers. Tips redeemable in ten seconds or less, a high-throughput relay network, and onchain settlement at a block target of 60 seconds.
  3. Integration between Matic Network and Syscoin Platform - similar to Syscoin’s current integration with Ethereum - will provide Reddit Community Points with EVM scalability (including the Memberships ERC777 operator) on the Matic side, and performant simple value transfers, robust decentralized security, and sovereign store-of-value on the Syscoin side. It’s “the best of both worlds”. The trade-off is more complex interoperability.

Syscoin + Matic Integration

Matic and Blockchain Foundry Inc, the public company formed by the founders of Syscoin, recently entered a partnership for joint research and business development initiatives. This is ideal for all parties as Matic Network and Syscoin Platform provide complementary utility. Syscoin offers characteristics for sovereign ownership and security based on Bitcoin’s time-tested model, and shares a significant portion of Bitcoin’s own hashpower. Syscoin’s focus is on secure and scalable simple value transfers, trust-minimized interoperability, and opt-in regulatory compliance for tokenized assets rather than scalability for smart contract execution. On the other hand, Matic Network can provide scalable EVM for smart contract execution. Reddit Community Points can benefit from both.
Syscoin + Matic integration is actively being explored by both teams, as it is helpful to Reddit, Ethereum, and the industry as a whole.

Proving Performance & Cost Savings

Our POC focuses on 100,000 on-chain settlements of token transfers on the Syscoin Core blockchain. Transfers and burns perform equally with Syscoin. For POCs related to smart contracts (subscriptions, etc), refer to the Matic Network proposal.
On-chain settlement of 100k transactions was accomplished within roughly twelve minutes, well-exceeding Reddit’s expectation of five days. This was performed using six full-nodes operating on compute-optimized AWS c4.2xlarge instances which were geographically distributed (Virginia, London, Sao Paulo Brazil, Oregon, Singapore, Germany). A higher quantity of settlements could be reached within the same time-frame with more broadcasting nodes involved, or using hosts with more resources for faster execution of the process.
Addresses used: 100,014
The demonstration was executed using this tool. The results can be seen in the following blocks:

It is important to note that this POC is not focused on Z-DAG. The performance of Z-DAG has been benchmarked within realistic network conditions: Whiteblock’s audit is publicly available. Network latency tests showed an average TPS around 15k with burst capacity up to 61k. Zero-latency control group exhibited ~150k TPS. Mainnet testing of the Z-DAG network is achievable and will require further coordination and additional resources.
Even further optimizations are expected in the upcoming Syscoin Core release which will implement a UTXO model for our token layer bringing further efficiency as well as open the door to additional scaling technology currently under research by our team and academic partners. At present our token layer is account-based, similar to Ethereum. Opt-in compliance structures will also be introduced soon which will offer some positive performance characteristics as well. It makes the most sense to implement these optimizations before performing another benchmark for Z-DAG, especially on the mainnet considering the resources required to stress-test this network.

Cost Savings

Total cost for these 100k transactions: $0.63 USD
See the live fee comparison for savings estimation between transactions on Ethereum and Syscoin. Below is a snapshot at time of writing:
ETH price: $318.55 ETH gas price: 55.00 Gwei ($0.37)
Syscoin price: $0.11
Snapshot of live fee comparison chart
Z-DAG provides a more efficient fee-market. A typical Z-DAG transaction costs 0.0000582 SYS. Tokens can be safely redeemed/re-spent within seconds or allowed to settle on-chain beforehand. The costs should remain about this low for microtransactions.
Syscoin will achieve further reduction of fees and even greater scalability with offchain payment channels for assets, with Z-DAG as a resilience fallback. New payment channel technology is one of the topics under research by the Syscoin development team with our academic partners at TU Delft. In line with the calculation in the Lightning Networks white paper, payment channels using assets with Syscoin Core will bring theoretical capacity for each person on Earth (7.8 billion) to have five on-chain transactions per year, per person, without requiring anyone to enter a fee market (aka “wait for a block”). This exceeds the minimum LN expectation of two transactions per person, per year; one to exist on-chain and one to settle aggregated value.

Syscoin Bridge

Mainnet Demonstration of Syscoin Bridge with the Basic Attention Token ERC-20
A two-way blockchain interoperability system that uses Simple Payment Verification to enable:
  • Any Standard ERC-20 token to be moved from Ethereum to the Syscoin blockchain as a Syscoin Platform Token (SPT), and back to Ethereum
  • Any SPT to be moved from Syscoin to the Ethereum blockchain as an ERC-20 token, and back to Syscoin

Benefits

  • Permissionless
  • No counterparties involved
  • No trading mechanisms involved
  • No third-party liquidity providers required
  • Cross-chain Fractional Supply - 2-way peg - Token supply maintained globally
  • ERC-20s gain vastly improved transactionality with the Syscoin Token Platform, along with the security of bitcoin-core-compliant PoW.
  • SPTs gain access to all the tooling, applications and capabilities of Ethereum for ERC-20, including smart contracts.

HOWTO: Setup an Agent
Developer & User Diligence

Trade-off

The Syscoin Ethereum Bridge is secured by Agent nodes participating in a decentralized and incentivized model that involves roles of Superblock challengers and submitters. This model is open to participation. The benefits here are trust-minimization, permissionless-ness, and potentially less legal/regulatory red-tape than interop mechanisms that involve liquidity providers and/or trading mechanisms.
The trade-off is that due to the decentralized nature there are cross-chain settlement times of one hour to cross from Ethereum to Syscoin, and three hours to cross from Syscoin to Ethereum. We are exploring ways to reduce this time while maintaining decentralization via zkp. Even so, an “instant bridge” experience could be provided by means of a third-party liquidity mechanism. That option exists but is not required for bridge functionality today. Typically bridges are used with batch value, not with high frequencies of smaller values, and generally it is advantageous to keep some value on both chains for maximum availability of utility. Even so, the cross-chain settlement time is good to mention here.

Cost

Ethereum -> Syscoin: Matic or Ethereum transaction fee for bridge contract interaction, negligible Syscoin transaction fee for minting tokens
Syscoin -> Ethereum: Negligible Syscoin transaction fee for burning tokens, 0.01% transaction fee paid to Bridge Agent in the form of the ERC-20, Matic or Ethereum transaction fee for contract interaction.

Z-DAG

Zero-Confirmation Directed Acyclic Graph is an instant settlement protocol that is used as a complementary system to proof-of-work (PoW) in the confirmation of Syscoin service transactions. In essence, a Z-DAG is simply a directed acyclic graph (DAG) where validating nodes verify the sequential ordering of transactions that are received in their memory pools. Z-DAG is used by the validating nodes across the network to ensure that there is absolute consensus on the ordering of transactions and no balances are overflowed (no double-spends).

Benefits

  • Unique fee-market that is more efficient for microtransaction redemption and settlement
  • Uses decentralized means to enable tokens with value transfer scalability that is comparable or exceeds that of credit card networks
  • Provides high throughput and secure fulfillment even if blocks are full
  • Probabilistic and interactive
  • 99.9999% security assurance within 10 seconds
  • Can serve payment channels as a resilience fallback that is faster and lower-cost than falling-back directly to a blockchain
  • Each Z-DAG transaction also settles onchain through Syscoin Core at 60-second block target using SHA-256 Proof of Work consensus

Z-DAG White Paper
Useful read: An in-depth Z-DAG discussion between Syscoin Core developer Jag Sidhu and Brave Software Research Engineer Gonçalo Pestana

Trade-off

Z-DAG enables the ideal speed/security tradeoff to be determined per use-case in the application layer. It minimizes the sacrifice required to accept and redeem fast transfers/payments while providing more-than-ample security for microtransactions. This is supported on the premise that a Reddit user receiving points does need security yet generally doesn’t want nor need to wait for the same level of security as a nation-state settling an international trade debt. In any case, each Z-DAG transaction settles onchain at a block target of 60 seconds.

Syscoin Specs

Syscoin 3.0 White Paper
(4.0 white paper is pending. For improved scalability and less blockchain bloat, some features of v3 no longer exist in current v4: Specifically Marketplace Offers, Aliases, Escrow, Certificates, Pruning, Encrypted Messaging)
  • 16MB block bandwidth per minute assuming segwit witness carrying transactions, and transactions ~200 bytes on average
  • SHA256 merge mined with Bitcoin
  • UTXO asset layer, with base Syscoin layer sharing identical security policies as Bitcoin Core
  • Z-DAG on asset layer, bridge to Ethereum on asset layer
  • On-chain scaling with prospect of enabling enterprise grade reliable trustless payment processing with on/offchain hybrid solution
  • Focus only on Simple Value Transfers. MVP of blockchain consensus footprint is balances and ownership of them. Everything else can reduce data availability in exchange for scale (Ethereum 2.0 model). We leave that to other designs, we focus on transfers.
  • Future integrations of MAST/Taproot to get more complex value transfers without trading off trustlessness or decentralization.
  • Zero-knowledge Proofs are a cryptographic new frontier. We are dabbling here to generalize the concept of bridging and also verify the state of a chain efficiently. We also apply it in our Digital Identity projects at Blockchain Foundry (a publicly traded company which develops Syscoin softwares for clients). We are also looking to integrate privacy preserving payment channels for off-chain payments through zkSNARK hub & spoke design which does not suffer from the HTLC attack vectors evident on LN. Much of the issues plaguing Lightning Network can be resolved using a zkSNARK design whilst also providing the ability to do a multi-asset payment channel system. Currently we found a showstopper attack (American Call Option) on LN if we were to use multiple-assets. This would not exist in a system such as this.

Wallets

Web3 and mobile wallets are under active development by Blockchain Foundry Inc as WebAssembly applications and expected for release not long after mainnet deployment of Syscoin Core 4.2. Both of these will be multi-coin wallets that support Syscoin, SPTs, Ethereum, and ERC-20 tokens. The Web3 wallet will provide functionality similar to Metamask.
Syscoin Platform and tokens are already integrated with Blockbook. Custom hardware wallet support currently exists via ElectrumSys. First-class HW wallet integration through apps such as Ledger Live will exist after 4.2.
Current supported wallets
Syscoin Spark Desktop
Syscoin-Qt

Explorers

Mainnet: https://sys1.bcfn.ca (Blockbook)
Testnet: https://explorer-testnet.blockchainfoundry.co

Thank you for close consideration of our proposal. We look forward to feedback, and to working with the Reddit community to implement an ideal solution using Syscoin Platform!

AMM + Limit Order, Will OneSwap Replace Traditional Exchange?

When a thing is denied, something new starts at a higher level.
The update and iteration of the currency circle takes only a few days.
On August 13, Yam, the token of a popular DeFi project, plummeted by 98%, while YFI, another DeFi cryptocurrency, outran the digital currency Bitcoin Gold by value under capital operation.
According to their familiarity with DeFi, blockchain investors in 2020 can be divided into two categories. The "New" investors are active in DEXs such as UniSwap and Balancer, striving for hundredfold returns on investment amid fake projects, while the "old" investors stick to mainstream cryptocurrencies and advocate value investment in the three major CEXs.
Despite its long history, DEX did not prosper until recently. It has processed transactions of over US$520 million in the past 24 hours, and the trading volume for the past week has exceeded the figure across 2019.
But still, many people are stranger to DEX.
I. Will DEX shuffle the existing trading market?
Upon discovering something new, you can describe it, but never evaluate it superficially.
UniSwap occupies 55% of the entire DEX market. Celebrities in the circle enjoy discussing the changes brought by UniSwap on social media and how it will change the existing trading landscape.
On August 5, Jay, CEO of OKEX Exchange, publicly stated that "UniSwap can hardly replace the current mainstream exchanges." on Weibo.
He also listed two reasons:
  1. With insufficient transaction depth, UniSwap cannot support large transactions;
  2. UniSwap cannot set prices independently, but has to follow the prices set by other exchanges.
He also recognized UniSwap’s AMM model in the post.
Soon this post was criticized by Dovy, the founding partner of Primitive Ventures, to the effect that Jay had quite limited knowledge about DeFi and the reasons he proposed did not hold good.
She also mentioned the advantages of a new generation of DEX represented by UniSwap:
Traditional exchanges determine the price and market value according to a small number of chips in the market. By comparison, AMM relies on the entire LP pool to contribute liquidity, and a small number of chips will not lead to severe fluctuations in the price. The price follows the curve of the static liquidity pool within a time range, rather than the manually controlled order book.
2. Is UniSwap good enough to replace centralized exchanges?
Neither OK or Binance had expected that one day their arch rival was not each other, but the newly emerging decentralized exchanges.
With totally different operating methods and business models, DEX and CEX have their own merits.
CEX comes with evident problems. Ordinary users do not trust its security due to the rampant data cheating. For project developers, CEX requires high fees for token listing and maintenance.
The advantage of CEX lies in its low threshold and mature business model.
Just as Jay said, DEXs represented by UniSwap are still faced with great challenges posed by user habits. For example, UniSwap does not support limit orders or the candlestick chart, and users need to rely on a third-party Ethereum wallet for operation.
The innovative AMM model allows ordinary users and small market makers to get involved and earn market-making fees, reducing costs and improving liquidity.
According to the trading volume at this time, UniSwap may not be able to replace mainstream exchanges, but it is good enough to replace second and third-tier exchanges.
3. Is OneSwap an upgraded version or a copy of UniSwap?
"The success of UniSwap proves the necessity of the DEX that does not require permission and supports AMM in the market. However, UniSwap comes with two shortcomings. One is the lack of support for limit orders, which greatly restricts trading methods and liquidity; The other is the excessive transaction cost and poor transaction efficiency due to the limited processing capacity of Ethereum." - Yang Haipo
Recently, OneSwap, known as the upgraded version of UniSwap, announced that it will hit the market in early September, and has received an investment of US$10 million from CoinEX.
To develop an open-source centralized trading platform like OneSwap, it is easy to replicate the technique. But among so many Swap applications in the market, what advantages does OneSwap have over UniSwap?
1. Limit orders
Neither buyers or sellers of UniSwap can set prices independently; instead, they need to follow the prices set by other exchanges. If they want to buy tokens at a specific price, they have no choice but to wait till tokens at such a price appear in UniSwap, a waste of time.
Continuing the good practices of centralized exchanges, OneSwap supports the traditional order book based on rapid exchange, offering more flexible trading methods and further enhancing the liquidity of digital assets.
2. The candlestick chart and depth map
Without an order book, UniSwap has been criticized for its simple transaction interface which does not even contain the basic candlestick chart. As a result, it cannot satisfy numerous traders’ demand for data analysis.
To benchmark against the centralized exchange in terms of user experience, OneSwap has introduced functions such as the candlestick chart, order ticket, and depth map. Just like centralized exchanges with professional charts, OneSwap provided the price trend, trading volume, depth, and other information of different cryptocurrencies for users to set out informed trading plans.
3. Liquidity mining + transaction mining
UniSwap’s AMM model is believed to be a vital catalyst for its explosive growth. With an additional incentive mechanism of transaction mining besides liquidity mining, OneSwap leaves more core benefits to its users.
OneSwap will charge the Taker a fixed percentage of transaction fees based on the transaction amount, while the Maker does not need to pay. The transaction fees are divided into two parts: 60% for liquidity and 40% for the repurchase and burning of ONES. In transaction mining, both liquidity providers and traders will receive ONES as an economic incentive.
The market is looking forward to a new product that is as user-friendly as CEX and as safe as DEX. Is OneSwap qualified to meet such demands?

Missing SMA and it seems like I am missing an algorithm?

So I'm pretty new to bitcoin mining and the first problem I have is it says "missing SMA" on some of the algorithms. Is that something I should deal with and how?
Also the highest paying algorithm "Grincuckatoo31" seems to be missing.
edit: there are also some "errors during benchmark"

Buying a used GPU? Read this.

Please upvote so more people can see it. If you're buying a used GPU on eBay, craiglist, etc. Your GPU might be used for cryptocurrency mining. Why is it important, you may ask. Well, GPU mining is essentially the mining of bitcoin, where bitcoin are creating through a process called "mining". Here's the worrisome part, the mining GPUs are subject to extreme conditions where they're kept running at full load for days, weeks, months, and even years. Their temperatures can exceed 95 celsius, damaging the circuitry and lowering the performance potential.
However, there is a few ways you could figure out if a GPU was used for mining or not, and if you do, you could most likely return or contact customer services (At eBay) for a defective item.
The first way is to actually see how much they're selling for. If they're selling at an abnormally low price, it might be evidence suggesting that the GPU was used for mining. Another way you could use is to look at the physical condition of the GPU. If the outside is worn out and have discolorations, it might be a sign from the intense, high-temperature, mining environment.
There are other ways too, such as tapping into the system BIOS and seeing if the original owner has oveunder clocked the GPU and if there is anything changed. The last, but not least, way you can use is to run a benchmarking test, seeing if there is higher temperatures than others or lower performance. Any of those happening could be an indicator that your GPU was used for mining.
Hope this helped you guys considering to buy a used GPU! Keep in mind, doing mining on a GPU is like driving a car endlessly. The mileage goes up, and the value goes down, and the probability of a fault goes up. If you notice any signs of mining, the best thing you could do is to return or send a dispute. Again, please upvote so more people can see this. Unknowingly buying used GPUs has been a rising problem. Feel free to post in the comments if this helped you or you have anything to add on!

Alienware Alpha R1 is 2020

Alienware Alpha R1 in 2020*

Mistyped the title...
This is going to be a simple guide to help any R1 owner upgrade and optimize their Alpha.

Upgradable Parts

(In order of importance)
Storage Unit:
HDD OUT
SSD IN
This is by far the easiest upgrade to make and the most effective.
https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100011693%20600038463
Any of those will work, just needs to be 2.5 Inch SATA.
How to Replace Video

WIFI Card:
This is like a 5-15$ upgrade. Go find any Intel 7265ngw off eBay and replace it with your current WIFI card. If you don’t want to buy used then here.
How to Replace Video

RAM:
Ram prices have tanked because of bitcoin mining, so this has become quite a cheap upgrade as well. I’d recommend 16GB just because why not, but if your tight on cash 8GB is fine.
https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100007609%20601190332%20601342186%20600000401&Order=BESTMATCH
How to Replace Video

CPU:
This required the most research. I’d recommend you look through this first. The wattage of the processor slot only ranges from 35w-50w according to a developer of the Alpha (Source). The socket type is LGA 1150.
If you’re going cheap, the i5-4590t (35w) and i5-4690s (65w) are both great options.
i5-4590t
i5-4690s
The i5-4690t (45w) is also great but is hard to find from a trustworthy source for a reasonable price.
If your willing to spend $100+ then easily the i7-4790t (45w). That is probably the best processor to put in the Alpha. All 45w will be used giving you 3.9 GHz Turbo. The T series apparently runs the best on the R1 according to This Reddit post.
How to Replace Video

GPU:
Coming Soon!

Maxed out Alpha R1 specs: i7-4790t, 1TB Samsung SSD, 16GB DDR3, Nvidia Geforce GTX 860m.

Well, GPU mining is essentially the mining of bitcoin, where bitcoin are creating through a process called "mining". Here's the worrisome part, the mining GPUs are subject to extreme conditions where they're kept running at full load for days, weeks, months, and even years. Their temperatures can exceed 95 celsius, damaging the circuitry and lowering the performance potential.
However, there is a few ways you could figure out if a GPU was used for mining or not, and if you do, you could most likely return or contact customer services (At eBay) for a defective item.
The first way is to actually see how much they're selling for. If they're selling at an abnormally low price, it might be evidence suggesting that the GPU was used for mining. Another way you could use is to look at the physical condition of the GPU. If the outside is worn out and have discolorations, it might be a sign from the intense, high-temperature, mining environment.
There are other ways too, such as tapping into the system BIOS and seeing if the original owner has oveunder clocked the GPU and if there is anything changed. The last, but not least, way you can use is to run a benchmarking test, seeing if there is higher temperatures than others or lower performance. Any of those happening could be an indicator that your GPU was used for mining.
Hope this helped you guys considering to buy a used GPU! Keep in mind, doing mining on a GPU is like driving a car endlessly. The mileage goes up, and the value goes down, and the probability of a fault goes up. If you notice any signs of mining, the best thing you could do is to return or send a dispute. Again, please upvote so more people can see this. Unknowingly buying used GPUs has been a rising problem. Feel free to post in the comments if this helped you or you have anything to add on!

Attempting to overclock a 1080 TI just no results

I'm attempting to use MSI afterburner to overclock my Alienware 1080 Ti (it's a prebuilt Aurora R7. I know, I know, go easy on me it was when bitcoin mining had driven up prices to extremes and I'd never built a PC before). I've tweaked the power limit along with core clock and memory clock, but when I use the Superposition Benchmark on 4k optimized I repeatedly get a score of around 6685 both before and after overclocking, although one time it managed a 6823 so only a 2% improvement. The GPU is also staying very cool, topping out at 68 degrees during the test.
The GPU1 core clock at stock is at 1835 Mhz while running the Superposition Benchmark, and when I use the settings (Power 120%, Core clock +175, Mem Clock +450) it does go to 2000 Mhz during the test, but I'm only getting at best 1% better on the Superposition score, and sometimes the same even though from videos it makes it seem like I should be getting 5-10% better from those tweaks. There something I'm missing or is my card just not able to overclock?

08-13 21:45 - 'Building the Infrastructure for the Future Decentralized Financial Market, Coinbase Included HBTC.Com Debut DeFi Project - Nest Protocol' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/Nest_Fan removed from /r/Bitcoin within 24-34min

'''
As the world’s leading regulatory compliant digital asset exchange, Coinbase sets one of the most stringent requirements for digital asset listing which includes technical evaluation of projects, legal and risk analysis, market supply and demand analysis, and crypto-economics. Coinbase holds a strong reputation in the digital asset industry, and thus the “Coinbase Standard” is considered as the industry benchmark for other digital asset projects, and the market has even seen the “Coinbase effect”.
On July 25 2020, Coinbase quietly launched the pricing chart of a decentralized oracle project, NEST Protocol (NEST), into its portal. Although Coinbase has yet to announce the inclusion of the project in its evaluation list, it represents a keen interest in the DeFi sector, and particularly in the DeFi price oracle projects.
NEST Protocol is the rising star in the decentralized price oracle sector
Decentralized financial services offered by the current mainstream DeFi platforms such as MakerDAO, Compound, dYdX, etc. rely heavily on the market data provided by the oracle projects. Oracle projects act as reliable information sources to feed these price data to other DeFi Projects, connecting the price data from the centralized world to the DeFi space. As such, the price oracle is an integral part of the decentralized financial services infrastructure.
Traditionally, the price oracle collects data from different platforms and feeds these data points to the DeFi space to create data reference points to enable them to function properly. However, many problems currently exist in the DeFi space, for example, blockchain network congestion, malicious attacks, wild market fluctuations, and other factors that may cause the data given by the price oracle to deviate from the true market data. These ultimately cause users to trade on wrong information in the DeFi space and increases such transaction costs.
Decentralized finance requires a fast, secure, and reliable price oracle. The birth of the decentralized price oracle is the embodiment of the blockchain industry’s thinking, and the current market projects offering decentralized price oracle services which includes NEST Protocol, Chainlink, Band Protocol, Tellor, Witness, Oraclize, and many others.
The innovation of NEST-Price is that every data point has been agreed upon by market validators, in line with the blockchain consensus mechanism. NEST-Price synchronizes the off-chain price in a highly decentralized manner, creating real and valid price data on-chain. This is the unique differentiator between NEST-Price and other price oracles.
Compared with other price oracle projects, NEST also has other features and advantages, such as the proposed peer-to-peer quotation matching as well as its unique verifier verification structure, making NEST more resilient to malicious attacks, resulting in a more decentralized network, and it’s on-chain prices closer to the fair market price. All of this has resulted in the NEST Protocol becoming a rising star in the DeFi price oracle sector. HBTC.com selects high-quality projects to list and partnering with NEST to promote the development of DeFi ecosystem
During the selection of quality assets, exchanges like [HBTC.com]1 and Coinbase adhere to the principle of a rigorous selection of assets from different projects to enable a proper range of digital assets. At the same time, in order to solve existing pain points in the digital asset industry, which currently lacks a market-making management solution, HBTC.com also has launched its own “coin listing crowdsourcing [liquidity initiative]2 “, redefining the exchange market making model.
HBTC.com, through its coin listing strategy, effectively reduces the problem of low liquidity in the early stages of high-quality projects, ensuring the smoothness of the user experience, and achieves a win-win situation for traders, the community, and the respective trading platform. These initiatives, coupled with reliable user protection and a responsible attitude, have earned a positive reputation among users.
Since its inception, the HBTC.com exchange has been committed to the discovery of both quality and promising digital asset projects. At a time when DeFi is growing rapidly, HBTC.com has a unique perspective for the decentralized price oracle sector and has prioritized NEST as a premium partner to debut the project alongside with its global branding upgrade. In addition, HBTC.com has [100% proof of reserves]3 for traders to validate the existence of assets via the Merkle tree, which brings transparency to the extreme.
In May 2020, NEST token delivered a 883.29% of return, at its peak, after its global debut on HBTC.com. At present, HBTC Exchange addresses holding NEST token accounts in a total of 141 million, ranked first in the overall network. At the same time, the HBTC Exchange network exclusively releases NEST staking mining and data show that NEST 24-hour turnover has reached $20.4 million.
Post-listing of the NEST token, HBTC.com has also listed DeFi projects such as DF, OKS, NEST, SWTH, JST, NVT, and other DeFi projects with market potential; some projects have achieved astonishing performance in the secondary market.
HBTC.com’s path to DeFi: developing public chains to prepare for the future ecosystem breakout.
In terms of the DeFi product and ecosystem infrastructure, HBTC has deployed HBTC Chain since launched in 2018, an infrastructure designed for decentralized finance and DeFi business with patented Bluehelix decentralized cross-chain clearing and custody technology.
The HBTC Chain is the DeFi ecosystem infrastructure that the team has spent a significant amount of effort to build. It is based on decentralization and community consensus and integrates cryptography and blockchain technologies to support decentralized association-based governance capabilities at the technical level. Based on decentralized key management, combining various cryptography tools including ECDSA, commitment, zero-knowledge proof, and multi-party computation, It implements the distributed private key generation and signature for cross-chain assets among all validators. On top of that, this technology can realize light-weight and non-intrusive cross-chain asset custody. On the clearing layer, HBTC Chain employs BHPOS consensus and horizontal sharding mechanisms to achieve high-performing transaction clearing, and implementation of OpenDex protocol to help the development of the DeFi ecosystem.
In addition, with the success experience of Bluehelix Cloud SaaS and white label solutions and the HBTC Brokerage system, HBTC’s public chain also innovatively supports CEX+DEX mixed matchmaking model and OpenDex protocol and proposes the three-tier node system which consists of standard node + consensus node + core node. This structure provides HBTC public chain certain advantages in terms of performance and cross-chain transactions. Users can easily establish a DEX with OpenDex protocol at nearly zero cost, and all DEX will share the liquidity and support customized user interface and trading parameters. The trading experience can be completely comparable to centralized spot exchanges.
With the launch of its test network, it is now possible to develop various DeFi applications on the HBTC public chain, such as decentralized swap, so that private keys are not controlled by any party; no KYC, which can prevent personal information leakage; and asset security through the setting of invalidation, cancellation of transactions and other functions, cross-chain asset mappings, such as the ability to issue cross-chain cBTC or other chain tokens, fully decentralized asset mapping contracts, and 100% reserves.
Conclusion
In the past few months, the DeFi market has been extremely active, the price of DeFi tokens has been rising, and a new round of competition with the centralized exchanges has started. HBTC Chain relies on the powerful technology of Bluehelix and [HBTC.com]1 , giving all public chains the ability to interconnect, and put into both DeFi and SaaS levels. Undoubtedly, as one of the first exchanges to build the DeFi ecosystem, HBTC is leading the breakout in the current DeFi craze and has now become the first choice of users to engage with quality DeFi projects.

Chromia - Blockchain of Blockchains That Has Staged To Revolutionize Decentralized Application Development

Blockchain has taken the world by storm. The tech may have been envisioned to power decentralized finance in Bitcoin, it's potential and use case had far exceeded such identity.
It has opened the possibility to develop trust and openness in a way that has never been expressed before.
However, like any new development, blockchain has many challenges that need to be addressed.
Firstly, existing protocols that power the initial set of blockchains are too slow to garner advanced real-world usage.
Their architectural build also implies they are unable to scale accordingly to meet application and usage demand.
Blockchains are renowned for their strong security and immutability, nonetheless, these factors rely solely on the type of protocol or consensus adopted, and in many cases, the consensus of a particular blockchain may fail to establish a secured environment that could be relied upon under factual circumstances.
On the developer end, developing and building blockchain applications is a nightmare many wanted to escape because most integrated blockchain programming languages are new with an unestablished root. This means programmers have to learn a new language from basics before they can start building on a blockchain network.
The hardest part is that almost each of every type and brand of blockchain has its unique programming language which as a result contributes to non-interoperability that led to a status quo of blockchains being called an "island of self-isolation".
An obvious solution to most of the aforementioned downsides is to start restructuring how blockchains are made by design and code.
The good news is that a blockchain project with a new root has already achieved the feat of addressing most of these problems by building a relational blockchain system governed by a management system termed "Postchain".
I am talking about Chromia blockchain network built by the ChromaWay development team.
Chromia
Chromia is a public blockchain with a relational database system build and design. What this means is that data can be structured and defined in any way by the builder of the system. This flexibility of data management allows for different usage scenarios.
This is a sweet pot for developers but what is more interesting is the ability to code and deploy applications in a seamless manner.
Chroma uses Postchain to oversee the operation of its blockchain network in conjunction with a flexible and easy-to-code programming language called RELL (Relational Language).
Great protocol design? Thumb up! Nice programming language... Interesting! But what about other challenges mentioned in the opening part of the post?
Hell yeah! A blockchain system cannot be duly considered if it can't scale and operate at a good speed.
Chromia takes this factor to heart and ensures its network is able to process transactions at a block rate of 2 seconds, which is more than enough to support most applications and commercial usage.
Blockchain Of Blockchains: Chromia Modular Configuration
One method spam is avoided on blockchain networks is through integrated fee structure, most times, this is charged directly from users. However, Chromia thinks this idea should be rewritten by instead charging Dapps directly for the operation they perform.
Consequently, and since most application usage differs from one type to another. This and many other implementations led to a modular blockchain design where each Dapp can reside on its own chain, dictate its own rule and usage and intended fee structure.
The Dapps in this case acts like side chains that are attached to the governing Chromia infrastructure. Each Dapp or side chain is independent but benefits from the security and laid facilities of the network.
Chromia adopted PBFT consensus to ensure consensus can be achieved under certain rules even if some node in the network cannot be relied upon at a time, thus, eliminating incidents such as 'one point of failure'.
An Infrastructure For A Wide Range Of Usage Scenario
Chromia launched its main net in Dec 2019, and moved from an experimental position to prove their dedication towards achieving their vision not just on paper but as a practical and working process.
Ever since their main net launch. The chain has seen different types of apps deploy on its network.
The network relational design also means Dapps with huge computational demand can work efficiently and seamlessly with any cause to worry.
Let's look at some of these Dapps.
Chromunity
A decentralized social media platform that leverages the advantage of the relational computational build of Chromia to bring about fantastic social and community user experience.
The advantages of Chromunity as a decentralized social platform is how users can control their data and interactions, vote for representatives that implement the will and voice of the community.
Chromunity features a Reddit-like design and interface with the ability to post short/long meaningful content to a wide range of community categories or specific ones.
These screenshots give a sneak peek into how the interactive user interface looks like.
Green Asset Wallet
This is the first enterprise Dapp to launch on the Chromia chain after its main net release.
Using the quote of how the project defines itself.
"Green Assets Wallet is the world’s first blockchain-based platform for easy validation and impact reporting of green bonds".
The product has many features that are designed to suit investor's needs. From real-time collaboration to ensuring optimum trust and transparency to security. The Dapp is ideal for green bonds operations that look to make issuer and investors' lives an easier one.
Investors have direct access to trusted green bond information, metrics, and data.
Green asset wallet at allows investors to make new investment discoveries through search criteria, compare, benchmark, and follow up on investment opportunities".
Issuers are able to operate with an independent, cost-efficient, and structured system, and provide investors with impact investment opportunities and report on achievements.
Mines Of Dalarnia
Is "an action-adventure platform-mining game where the player controls a character and guides them through various blocks of earth, to discover and collect minerals of multiple rarities. Includes a blockchain based real-estate market".
Chromia transaction speed and computational efficiency make it an ideal platform to build decentralized or blockchain games of different kinds.
Play Mines Of Dalarnia
Conclusion
Chromia combines many groundbreaking features that purport it as a new generation blockchain and set it out among the crowd.
It's easy to code programming language, Postchain consortium, relational database system express qualities that fit different needs of decentralized applications and their operations. All of which state the chain strength and confidence of usage.
Under the governance of ChromaWay - an organization of tech experts and geeks. Chromia is expected to continue on an upward positive momentum.

08-06 16:55 - 'Is it safe enough and how profitable is it to take a long-term loan in bitcoins?' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/Yoo_Tu removed from /r/Bitcoin within 1-11min

'''
«Institutional investor lender Genesis Global Capital in the quarterly report indicated a 35.3% increase in the issuance of cryptocurrency loans in the second quarter - to a record $ 2.2 billion»
The worst predictions of zitramon1 are beginning to come true. Only a complete ignoramus can decide to take out a loan in cryptocurrency. Any limited emission cryptocurrency pegged to the dollar as a benchmark is not subject to inflation! The cost of most of them will only grow over time.
For example. Taking a loan in bitcoins for 5 years, you will pay in dollars not only the loan itself and the loan interest on it (since in any case you will have to buy bitcoins for USDs) but also the exchange rate difference on the loan and loan interest prevailing at the time of payments!
Calculate for yourself how much you will have to pay by taking a loan in the amount of 10 bitcoins for 5 years at 2 percent per annum at a bitcoin cost of 10,000 $:
- if Bitcoin costs "only" 20,000 $
- if Bitcoin costs "only" 200,000 $
- if bitcoin costs "only" 2,000,000 $
This is exactly what zitramon1 warned about four years ago, pointing out that gold is no longer an icon and a way has been found to extract it with the help of bacteria from any non-precious metal.
At the beginning of 2011 brilliant Russian scientists Viktor Kurashov and Tamara Sakhno made a sensational discovery, for which a patent was received in 2015.
[[link]3

[link]4
In June 2016 the opening was presented to the world at a conference in Switzerland.
[[link]5

The essence of the invention is that using the microbiological method of transmutation of chemical elements discovered by them, gold can be obtained from anything. Even from simple stone, not to mention metals. According to unverified data at the rumor level, the whole process takes about 18 hours and practically does not require any energy costs. If it’s very simple, then the bacteria “eat” the feedstock, for example iron, and “defecate” it with gold. In common people, this process is mistakenly called cold thermonuclear fusion. In other words, these guys invented the Red Lion — i.e. what the occult sciences call Lapis Philosophorum or the philosopher’s stone.
vanus saldarius — the so-called artificially created bacterium for the extraction of gold from the soil in spent salt mines located deep underground. This bacterium is a rational organism with a hard-coded goal and duration of its life. The latter are configured to issue a certain amount of product with a given quality and packaging based on feedback. In other words, the gold of the required sample can be produced by the colony in the form of coins, bars, ingots, briquettes, etc.
The process itself is carried out in three stages:
  1. Sowing. The “field” is treated with an aqueous suspension containing bacteria. A “water mist” containing bacteria is pumped into the mine or sprayed from drones. Then it settles and bacteria begin to form colonies on the basis of a given program. For some hours it lasts, it is not known for sure. Somewhere around a day;
  2. Ripening. In the mine, the catalyst is sprayed starting the transmutation process. After the process is completed and the bacteria receive the corresponding “signaling”, the self-elimination of the created colonies takes place on feedback;
  3. Harvesting. Here it is clear. Go and collect the finished ingots, pollen, coins, or whatever is programmed there.
All this is carefully hidden behind the regular purchase of physical gold by imperial emissaries, the constant increase in the value of gold and bringing it today to more than 2000 US dollars per troy ounce.

Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive.
Whenever I am playing a game or running benchmarks my monitor will go to a no input screen after a few minutes of running. Sometimes it will freeze and I need to turn off the PSU to turn off the PC. When it shuts down I also hear a click sound, seems like it is coming from the psu, but I am not sure.

List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.
My gaming PC hasn't been working properly for like a year or more. A year or 2 ago I changed all my pc parts for new ones, so all the stuff in my computer is not more than 2 years old. Whenever I am playing a game or running benchmarks my monitor will go to a no input screen after a few minutes of running. I first thought it might be a GPU problem, so i RMA'd it. I have had about 5 different 1080Ti's that were all back from RMA. I have already brought my PC to a repair shop here, they also didnt know where the problem would be. They have checked all the parts, but they couldn't check the MB and CPU. So I send my MB to the place where i bought it from, they tested the MB for 4 hours in different benchmarks and nothing was wrong. I tried installing the gpu into my dad's pc, it still crashed, but after like half a day. I swapped the cpu for a Ryzen 3 1200, but still no luck. I've tried almost anything but nothing seems to work. Reinstalling and factory resetting also doesn't seem to fix the issue. When i unplug the pc and remover the psu cables from the GPU and plug Them back in a fee seconds later, my pc will take longer to crash.
I should add that the PSU is from an old bitcoin miner, i don't know if that has any negative effect on the system.
I hope this is enough info for you guys to help me out with, if any more info is needed just say so ,
thanks in advance

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Unstable

I've had this card for a couple years. I bought it used off ebay for cheap.
I used to slightly overclock the card without issues when I first got it, but since I started playing a couple games again it crashes without an underclock. After playing around with Firestorm I found I have to underclock it by about -200 MHz on GPU and about -900 MHz Memory to get the card stable, this is nearly all it will allow on the sliders. If I don't, on benchmark tests it freezes up or artifacts if I don't do enough Memory underclock. Games run for some time then eventually crash or freeze if I don't...underclocked has no issues.
Any idea what may be causing this, card just dying? I'm sure it was used for bitcoin mining originally so that wouldn't shock me.

With high investment and operating costs, the whole bitcoin mining activity got concentrated on mining pools run by large companies, giving too little scope for individual miners to start and profit from it.
