NavCoin Core 5.5.0 — DAO Ex...

NavCoin Core 5.5.0 — DAO ExtensionNavCoin Core 5.0.0 — DAO ExtensionThis major release includes multiple soft forks which will extend the NavCoin DAO and enable the community to not only vote on the allocation of the decentralised fund, but also vote on the network consensus parameters changes as well as a non binding onchain voting mechanism called consultations.By downloading and installing this new version of software you will be automatically voting “yes” for the included soft forks. To vote “no” you can set rejectversionbit=X in your config file, replacing X with the version bit number you wish to reject.Once a soft fork reaches consensus, it will be activated on the network 1 period after being accepted at which point everyone running navcoin core whether you’re mining or not, will need to upgrade to this version.You can keep track of the soft fork voting progress on the block explorer.https://www.navexplorer.com/soft-forksOn top of the DAO Extensions, there are some interesting upgrades including Dandelion++ which is one of the components of NavCoin’s new privacy protocol BLS Confidential Transactions.For more info, check out the release notes below;DAO Extension<Pull Request 530>This PR includes a series of Deployment Proposals as described in https://www.reddit.com/r/NavCoin/comments/bs4pvn/proposal_for_the_extension_of_the_community_fund/:Adds support for abstaining in the votings. (Version Bit 19) — includes functional testEnables voting state cache, reducing the amount of votes which need to be broadcasted down to 1 per address. (Version Bit 22) — does not include specific functional test, but old fund tests pass having this deployment activatedEnables DAO consultations. (Version Bit 23) — includes functional testEnables modification of consensus parameters through DAO consultations. (Version Bit 25) — includes functional testEnables voting delegation and voting from light wallets. (Version bit 27) — includes functional testAllows fund proposals to have a different address for signing the payment requests and for receiving the payment. This allows to use arbitrary scripts as payment addresses, like multisig addresses. When the payment address differs from the owner address, the first will be specified using the p parameter on the JSON object embedded on the strDZeel property of the transaction.Includes UI to manage the new DAO features.Dandelion++<Pull Request 588>This PR adds support for Dandelion as described in https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0156.mediawikiMnemonic startup GUI<Pull Request 659>This PR adds a Startup GUI which allows for the ability to restore and create wallets with Mnemonic words. Mnemonic words are like a read readable master key for BIP32 a bitcoin proposal to make key generation derived from one key or a masterkey instead of being randomly created as before hand.More InformationFor the full release notes please visit the Community Fund Stability Patches release tag on GitHub.To download the NavCoin Core 5.0.0 please visit the Wallet Downloads page.NavCoin Core 5.5.0 — DAO Extension was originally published in NavCoin Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

“Who will Watch the Watchme...

“Who Will Watch the Watchmen?” — Why Privacy Matters to NavCoin and Why We Are Bringing it BackNavCoin has never made a secret of the fact that we believe strongly in the privacy rights of individuals. It is with no irony whatsoever then, that we would like to proclaim our latest announcement from the rooftops:After years of wait, NavCoin is closer to see its privacy-preserving features restored! Work upon the new protocol, BLSCT — designed from scratch by our engineers — has completed another major milestone and will be soon ready for testnet deployment!From A to B, via X, Y and ZIn the beginning, there was NavTech. This first method of making NAV transactions private showed much early promise but, after much deliberation, was scaled down in favor of the advancement of other solutions.ZeroCT, based upon Zerocoin, was the next avenue previously explored. This method of obfuscating transaction amounts with the addition of confidential transactions combined with the shielding characteristics of Zerocoin offered a very high level of privacy. Sadly, when it came to testing time for this solution and it was implemented in a testnet environment, a flaw in the original protocol was found.And so, with renewed vigor, it was back to the drawing board. Led by 0x2830 -the latest addition to the NavCoin development team — completion of the protocol has been a gargantuan task. After many months in the making though, now, BLSCT (Boneh-Lynn-Shacham Confidential Transactions), is almost ready to deploy!How does it work?In a sentence, BLSCT uses a combination of BLS signatures (which assist shielding the origin of a transaction), Confidential Transactions (which shield the amount being transacted) and Stealth Addresses (which add complete privacy for the missing part, the receiver).The use of BLS signatures has many benefits, both for user and network. By blending the transactions occurring inside of a block, tracing the identity of the transaction maker is made almost impossible. A user could send multiple transactions in fact, and any potentially prying eyes would be unable to infer any obvious connections between them. They are aggregated and this aggregation is possible with any number of transactions. Also, because only a single signature is required per block, and not each input, it is great for keeping NavCoin scalable for years to come.Photo by 𝓴𝓘𝓡𝓚 𝕝𝔸𝕀 on UnsplashUsing BLSCT has other advantages too! When a user first sends a transaction, they can choose whether to coalesce their coins with others before sending. At this point, their wallet will send an anonymous request using Dandelion++ for coins from other nodes. Once the session is broadcasted, those nodes connect together anonymously through Tor. Then the sender selects several coins at random from the responses received, jumbles them together with the original user’s coins, and only then, are the coins sent to the network. In this way, the user who requires true privacy is enabled with this, and those that provide liquidity to the mixing-process receive a fee for their service, earning a completely passive income and increasing their balance!How far away are we?At the time of writing (May 18th, 2020) we are entering the final furlong of this marathon development mission. Support for private transactions is in place and ready to go. It is possible to send and receive both private and public coins. Wallet support for creation and validation of these types of transactions is complete, and the GUI for them (sending, receiving, histories, and balance) is finished.And now, with the completion of P2P mixing features, integration of BLSCT is within arms reach. As of today, users can download, build, and test the features of BLSCT in a private local network environment. Just head over to Github!The last major task to complete is the integration of GUI and RPC commands and the addition of test units. Once these remaining items are ticked from the to-do list, BLSCT private transactions will be ready for battle on testnet, and assuming no hiccups en route, mainnet release should follow shortly thereafter.Photo by Markus Spiske on UnsplashThe reason why privacy matters.Why is it then, that NavCoin believes privacy features to be such an important achievement? Afterall;What exactly is in a name?An internet browsing history?The details of your finances?Photo by Ev on UnsplashThere is a common old saying that dictates; ‘only the guilty have anything to hide’. When it comes to our personal information though, nowadays, more and more of us are realizing that this adage simply does not hold. If it did, then perhaps, it would be better if our boss were able to know when we’ve had one too many ‘shandies’ celebrating a friend’s birthday on a work night? Or that your local Government representative knows you enjoy the movies of Matt Damon a little more than you should?While these may seem like frivolous examples, behind the comfort of closed doors, we all like to feel as if we are in control of who knows what about our business. It should be our choice as to which details of our lives we expose to which individuals.On a larger scale, there is also a more sinister side to the story. Data breach scandals — such as those linked to Cambridge Analytica — have been shown to have wide-reaching consequences, even potentially affecting the outcomes of major socio-political events.Photo by Sandro Cenni on UnsplashWith all this in mind, it is obvious why NavCoin has long recognized the importance of these issues. Ever since its inception in 2014, it has been an advocate for privacy in the cryptocurrency sphere. Did you know the original name for NavCoin was NavajoCoin? It was inspired by the Navajo tribe code talkers who, by their unique linguistic characteristics, were acclaimed as a critical factor in the Allied victory of world war two.Photo by Chloé Stein on UnsplashNowadays, while the name of NavCoin may have been trimmed down, the principles remain the same: privacy matters.The bottom lineIt is often said that ‘data is the new oil’. If this is the case, then the highest quality, and therefore most valuable, variety of all ‘digital black-gold’, is that of your finances. Governments and international conglomerates will seemingly stop at nothing to place trackers on you and your spending habits. Some only want to sell you more product, others have darker intents, but by utilizing a unique duel-technique approach, BLSCT, NavCoin offers a complete privacy solution that operates in a decentralized and trustless manner. NavCoin gives back ownership of financial data to its users. Using NAV gives you the choice to decide whether to leave a permanent record of your purchases and payments or not. There are no ‘watchmen’ when using NAV. No centralized servers or trusted set-ups are required. This leaves no room whatsoever for censorship or human-error. The only faith required is in cryptography. And with faith in such short supply nowadays, this can only play to NavCoin’s advantage.“Who will Watch the Watchmen?” — Why Privacy Matters to NavCoin and Why We Are Bringing it Back was originally published in NavCoin Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

A Guide to Marketing NavCoi...

A Guide to Marketing NavCoin — Done In 15mins A DayThe following text is extracted from a Reddit post whose author is anonymous. We felt urged to spread it — it accurately describes our approach to marketing!Ok. So over the last year or so, I’ve seen some proposals to run marketing campaigns for NavCoin. These are cool and all, but they’re ultimately going to be drops in the ocean.Marketing has changed. Running ‘marketing campaigns’ is an old school mentality.So here’s my approach at giving you all a guide on how we should be marketing NavCoin. And spoiler alert: it involves each and every one of you.One note first:NO ONE SHOULD BE PAYING FOR MARKETING. If people ask for funds from the community fund — be very sceptical. They’re going to promise the world, but not give much value back. And most of the paid advertising options in crypto are scams.We’re in a new world where most of the traditional digital marketing channels won’t work well (SEO, Google Ads, Facebook Ads, etc).In this stage of the market — people will only search for us if they know us, but no one knows us. Most people don’t know NavCoin (yet…). So we have to find where the conversations are happening online, and be a part of them. We’re not going to take over the world through sticker campaigns.So what should we be doing? The new way of marketing is through building audiences. We don’t have the option to build a new Facebook/Discord/Google (good luck with that…). And we shouldn’t be trying to pay Facebook/Google/Reddit to get in front of crypto users faces — that’s not scalable. So what do we need to do? We need to build it organically. We need to build audiences.What I’m going to talk you through is an approach for members of our community to build audiences now, so that when the next wave comes, we’ll be in a good place to capture attention that comes from those all-time highs…But I don’t have access to the NavCoin social accounts! How can I build an audience?For this to work — it needs to NOT come from the NavCoin account. The NavCoin account should be dedicated to just focusing on publishing updates/news/alerts for the network. It’s not going to grow us a massive audience organically.But why should I put this effort for NavCoin?You’re not doing this for NavCoin. You’re doing it for yourself. NavCoin will benefit as a side effect. By building an audience, you give yourself leverage. You create a brand for yourself. You unlock opportunities in the future that aren’t to do with NavCoin.The good news: It’s easier than ever to build an audience. You don’t even need to be an amazing writer. You just need to be smart, not be spammy, share interesting perspectives, don’t sell out, and post on a regular basis.Who are you to say what will work or not?I’ve been involved in a few crypto’s for the last 5 years, and I genuinely want to see NavCoin succeed. NavCoin has one of the most solid foundations — a very smart, and very dedicated team that believe in privacy, and believe in NavCoin.So… Here’s What To DoThe basic premise for building an audience is fairly simple. We need to find where our target users are and share interesting content to grow our user base. But the most important thing is to not come across as a shill! If all you do is gush about how amazing NavCoin is — no one is going to follow you.Look — I love NavCoin. A lot. But it’s got a long way to go, and pretending it’s amazing is just fake. It’s got huge potential — definitely. That’s why we’re all invested. But we have to build that vision first.Now lots of people have crypto accounts on Twitter, etc — so how do we grow our audiences? Let me give you a step by step formula for what you need to be doing…First — Where Should I Be Signed Up?In my opinion — these are the top channels for crypto:TwitterFacebook groupsDiscord channelsReddit is meh, but give it a shot if you’ve got time. It’s good for communities, but all the ‘general crypto’ subreddits are moderated to hell. You can be sure they’re controlling which coins get shilled, and keeping the competitors out.Facebook Groups and Discord allow you to post content. But Twitter allows you to build a following. So this is where we’ll start…What Should I Post?Our aim is to add value. There’s a lot of noise out there, so if you can create an account that shares the most interesting/informative crypto tweets/articles, you’ll be a step ahead of everyone else.The aim is to post about the following things:BitcoinEthereumthe ‘Blockchain of the moment’ to tap into the big conversations happening in crypto.Web3The future of paymentsInteresting blockchain projects/technologyCrypto influencers. Talk about those that are genuinely smart, and adding value to the community. By tagging them in a positive way, you make it so that they can see you, and more likely they’ll like/reshare your post.Memes. Add humour, this industry is dry enough…Technical analysis.And then….and only then, can you post about NavCoin. I’d say as a maximum NavCoin could be about 5% of your content.Be smart about posting about NavCoin:Don’t use stupid arguments. Don’t say NavCoin is going to replace everything. Don’t say it’s going to take over Bitcoin.It’s more likely that NavCoin will be a subsystem within crypto — for private payments/projects. It’s cheaper, it’s faster. We aren’t competing with ETH or BTC — in my opinion the future of NavCoin is that it’s invisible. Our ecosystem is building tools so that you don’t need to think about crypto — you don’t need to buy it, it’s all under the hood. Most people won’t even know they’re using it.Don’t speculate about prices. This is useless chat and characteristic of spammy accounts.Don’t be too negative. Stop trying to pull people down. Just focus on the good in the space & bring attention to it.But in saying that, don’t be uncritical. There are genuine scams out there, and you need to distance yourself from them.Add your 2 cents. Add personality to your content. Add your opinion.Everything You Need To Do — Step By StepCreate your account. Don’t call yourself “NaVcOiN_ L0v3r”. That instantly makes what you post less trustful.Every day — follow the top crypto accounts, reply to a tweet or two with valuable comments, and share interesting articles/opinions on your account. You could do this in 15mins.Every week/2 weeks — write a longer post/guide on something. Write a tweetstorm about ‘the best crypto wallet everyone should be using’.Most people don’t know about NavCoin, which means they won’t be interested in 80% of our content. So mostly write about the coins with huge followings. Become influential, even if it’s only to 20 people. Add value by making things simple to understand.And mention NavCoin in non-shilly ways about 5–10% of the time. Don’t PUSH. If you push, people put their defences up. You must PULL. Make people curious about NavCoin. Only share the top content from NavCoin — not every little update. Only big news. Hell — don’t talk about NavCoin for the first few months.Bonus step for overachievers: Build your local community. Give NavCoin to your friends. Not just 1NAV though. It’s an investment, you’re paying to get them interested. You’re paying to give them skin in the game. Get them to help you write content. Get them to help grow your audience.THAT’S IT. Don’t overthink this. Don’t plan out things bigger than you can chew. Just 10 mins a day, for the next 3 months will do more for NavCoin than anything we’ve done in the past. You won’t go viral overnight. It will start slow, but speed up over time.How NavCoin Becomes UsefulThere are 3 core things to making sure the NavCoin ecosystem thrives in the future. It’s by having:A robust developer ecosystem. By making it technologically exciting to get involved. We need our infrastructure strong, and we need technical builders to do it.Products — we need products built off NavCoin. Think about industries where payments take place, how can you combine NavCoin and other blockchains together to create amazing user experiences. What do you hate about money/payments in the real world/digital world. Think about them, share your vision, get feedback, find people that like the idea, and build it. Not a developer? There are so many ‘no code’ tools now that allow you to build pretty much anything, without needing to know code at all.Audiences. ‘NavCoin’ doesn’t need marketing. You all need marketing.Databases didn’t need “marketing”. They didn’t need an SEO plan or Facebook ads. What databases had is influencers that talked about the tech’s benefits organically, and products that made it easier & easier to use.You are the influencers for NavCoin — so go out there and influence. This is how decentralised projects work. There is no ‘team’ that you can blame. If you own NavCoin — you are the team.To do this, you need to talk about things everyone cares about. And at this point, most people don’t care about NavCoin (as it is for most cryptos…. it’s a very competitive space, and people only have so much time). Not until we tell stories that make it interesting.THAT’S IT. NOTHING MORE. NOTHING LESS.We’re at the beginning of the next hockey stick period of growth. The world is uncertain, and looking for alternatives. People are starting to get excited about crypto/blockchain again. SO NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT. Build that audience. So that when the users start flooding in, we’re ready & waiting for them.This is what I’ll be doing. I’ll see you all out there.—ECA Guide to Marketing NavCoin — Done In 15mins A Day was originally published in NavCoin Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The future of NavCoin gover...

When NavCoin initially launched in 2014, its core concepts were clear. One such core commitment is, and always will be, that decentralisation isn’t just a buzzword. With each protocol upgrade the innovative network has seen, they have stayed true to this promise, and with the imminent release of the NavCoin DAO upon us, the ecosystem looks to make another massive stride toward its goals.Photo by Valeriia Miller from PexelsBefore we dive more into the details of the NavCoin DAO, let’s take a quick look at what exactly a ‘Decentralised Autonomous Organisation’ is. A DAO can be described as:“…an organisation represented by rules encoded as a computer program that is transparent, controlled by shareholders and not influenced by a central government”This concept has long been heralded as a potential holy grail of achievement, both within the cryptocurrency sphere and also the wider world of business and investment. With proper implementation, DAO’s can provide legitimate solutions to many real-world problems. In principle, there is no central authority, such as a development team or Foundation, holding the reins of control. DAO’s return the power of governance to the community who ultimately are most affected by these decisions.To this effect, there is no one entity that can produce a unilateral decision. Users, miners and development teams all have equal weighting in their ability to exert their personal will without agreement from others. Ultimately, this also makes a DAO entirely incorruptible to human persuasion. It cannot be bought, bribed or banned by shady enterprises or enforcement agency. Even John Wick himself, could not excommunicate a perfectly programmed DAO!While this idea, in theory, is seemingly flawless, in practice DAO’s have been the source of much controversy. Most famously of all such cases, 3.6 million Ether was stolen in 2016 by hackers exploiting a vulnerability in the Etheruem DAO. This resulted in a hard fork event for the network, something which everyone involved with NavCoin are obviously keen to avoid!And so, what improvements does the NavCoin DAO make upon its predecessors, and, importantly, why are these tools so vital going forward?Essentially, there are three key prongs to the NavCoin DAO trident. Let’s break them down.FlexibilityWith the world entering a period of unprecedented uncertainty, now, more than ever, questions regarding the parameters controlling the financial markets are coming to the forefront. In the convoluted spectrum of fiat finance, these answers are usually somewhat elusive, to say the least.Conversely to this, in cryptocurrency, the principles of “code as law” are deep- rooted, bringing with it a sense of transparency of certainty. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, Bitcoin was born, and with it, the novel notion that currency supply needn’t be an infinitely inflationary model.Rigidity brings its own constraints however, as many crypto-communities have sadly found out the hard way. Without flexible parameters, vulnerabilities or outdated concepts can bring entire blockchains to their knees. For this very reason, unlike other DAO projects, NavCoin DAO allows for parameter updates. In fact, it allows any community member, regardless of coding ability, to bring a proposal forward, on any parameter whatsoever. The community are able to fund, guide and alter their networks rules without the involvement of developers.Take, for example, the “money printer go brr” meme we’re sadly all too familiar with. While NavCoin, much like Bitcoin, has scheduled emission (2.5 NAV per block), thanks to the NavCoin DAO, users can bring about a consensus to adjust block emission rates.In times of uncertainty this is a powerful feature, and, of course, is not limited to block emission rates. Any parameter whatsoever affecting the blockchain can be adjusted via this mechanism! The process in place guarantees that any NavCoin user, regardless of technical know-how, can have their voice heard and bring forward proposals to ultimately be decided upon by the community.ImmunityWhile consensus mechanisms are, generally speaking, the best tool for governing such decisions, they too, have been known to cause issues. Lower voter numbers on smaller topics can, and have, resulted in bad actors receiving payment for work never intended to be completed. To ensure that illegitimate proposals do not receive funding via loopholes in voting procedures, NavCoin DAO works hand-in- hand with a multi-consensus community funding system. This unique way of working means that, at no point, can bad-actors receive funding for shoddy or incomplete work, protecting the community.Photo by Lukas from PexelsConsultationWhile of course, protecting the interests of the network are vital, it is important too, to empower developers wishing to build using NavCoin. It is for this very reason, that the DAO brings with it a unique consultation system. With this system, developers can gauge the mood of the community before committing their time and resources to developing a full-blown proposal. This feature could also be used in a number of other novel ways. Say, creating a NavCoin community poll on their feelings toward privacy features.Photo by Element5 Digital from PexelsAnd speaking of privacy features, in addition to work being done upon NavCoin DAO, the next core upgrade will implement an entirely new privacy protocol. With much controversy surrounding the use of privacy features in the current climate of contact tracing, it will be interesting to explore the implications of this as governments look to phase out the use of cash and paper money in the wake of an international pandemic.For now, however, as traditionally rational markets show signs of instability, it is no surprise that the spotlight shines upon cryptocurrency once again for viable solutions. With the release of NavCoin DAO, NavCoin equips itself with the vital tools necessary in recognising and enacting the will of its users. More so than this, it does so without constraining them through predefined parameters, and at the same time, protects the network from censorship and malice.The future of NavCoin governance. was originally published in NavCoin Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

NavCoin Core 4.7.3 — Header...

NavCoin Core 4.7.3 — Header Spam Protection ImprovementsThis release only features one merged pull request, but it is an important security patch. It is recommended for all stakers and economic nodes to update immediately to ensure network stability. Everyone else running NavCoin Core is recommended to upgrade as soon as possible, even if you’re not staking.Anti Header Spam v2<Pull Request 656> <Commit 5f11875>Introduces a new anti header spam system which improves the previous implementation and addresses the art-of-bug reports.Features:Every time a header or block is received from another peer, its hash is added to a points list associated with the peer.Peers are discerned by their ip address, this means peers sharing ip address will also share the same points list. This can be changed with -headerspamfilterignoreport (default: true).Before proceeding with the block or headers validation, the points list will be cleared removing all the hashes of blocks whose scripts have already been correctly validated.The peer is banned if the size of the points list is greater than MAX_HEADERS_RESULTS*2 once cleared of already validated blocks.The maximum allowed size of the points list can be changed using the -headerspamfiltermaxsize parameter.The log category headerspam has been added, which prints to the log the current size of a peers points list.When -debug=bench is specified, execution time for the updateState function is logged.ConsiderationsThe maximum size of the points list by default is 4,000. With a block time of 30 seconds, NavCoin sees an average of 2,880 blocks per day. A maximum value of 4000 is roughly one and a half times more than the count of blocks a peer needs to be behind the chain tip to be in Initial Block Download mode. When on IBD, the header spam filter is turned off. This ensures that normal synchronisation is not affected by this filter.An attacker would be able to exhaust 32 bytes from the hash inserted in the points list + 181 bytes from the CBlockIndex inserted in mapBlockIndex for every invalid header/block before being banned. The points list is cleared when the attacker is banned, but those headers are not removed from mapBlockIndex or the hard disk in the current implementation. The size of CBlockIndex has been measured with:CBlockIndex* pindex = new CBlockIndex(); CDataStream ssPeers(SER_DISK, CLIENT_VERSION); ss << CDiskBlockIndex(pindex); std::vector<unsigned char>vch(ss.begin(), ss.end()); std::cout << to_string(vch.size()) << std::endl;The default maximum value means that a single malicious peer with a unique IP can exhaust at max 3,999*213=831 kilobytes without being banned or 4,000*181=707 kilobytes being banned.More InformationFor the full release notes please visit the Header Spam Protection Improvements release tag on GitHub.To download the NavCoin Core 4.7.3 please visit the Wallet Downloads page.NavCoin Core 4.7.3 — Header Spam Protection Improvements was originally published in NavCoin Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

NavCoin Core 4.7.2 — Community Fund Stability PatchesThis patch fixes various issues which were investigated and identified as part of the community fund stability review undertaken by the NavCoin Core developers. It considered a mandatory update due to the included stability patches and will require a reindex or full resynchronisation of the blockchain to take effect. Please read the full release notes for further instruction.Fix for Verify Chain<Pull Request 634> <Commit 049978e>This patch fixes Issue 630 and introduces several important changes.New RPC command getcfunddbstatehash covered by functional test cfunddb-statehash.pyNew state for payment requests 6 when those are paid.The payment request parameter paidOnBlock is substituted by stateChangedOnBlock when state is 6New structure for storing the state history of CFundDB entries. Those are stored in a map associating blockhash and state, allowing to directly revert state transitions when reorganizations are seen.verifychain now checks for the consistency of the CFundDB state hash when level 4 is specified.IMPORTANTThis set of changes will require older clients to reindex on launch, keeping the node offline for some hours at best. In order to reduce downtime, node operators can proceed as follows if needed:Close node with old version.mkdir /tmp/reindexdata; cp -rf <data_folder>/blocks /tmp/reindexdata/; cp -rf <data_folder>/chainstate /tmp/reindexdata/Reopen node with old version. It will be again onlineLaunch in parallel a second instance of the node, this time using the new version with the parameters -reindex -datadir=/tmp/reindexdata/Once the reindex finishes, close both nodes and copy back the reindexed data.rm -rf <data_folder>/blocks <data_folder>/chainstate; cp -rf /tmp/reindexdata/* <data_folder>Relaunch new version of the node.CFundDB extra log and ensure read before modify<Pull Request 622> <Commit 37fa72e>This PR adds extra log for all the modifications of the CFundDB and ensures entries are read in the memory cache before being modified.Restart testnet<Pull Request 628> <Commit b8ed018>This pull request starts a new NavCoin testnet.

NavCoin News — October 2019

NavCoin News — October 2019This months newsletter focuses on NavCoin Core progress, NavCoin on the DigiByte & Friends podcast, and NavPay’s resubmission to the iOS store.NavCoin Core UpdateSince the release of NavCoin Core 4.7.0 Purple Zebra last month there have been seven pull requests which have been reviewed and merged into master.Some of the interesting additions are;PR#605 — A graphical interface for users to voluntarily split a percentage of their stakes either to one of their own addresses, the community fund, a bounty program, or to directly sponsor a core developer.PR#587 — The capability to generate raw script addresses which starts to make advanced OP_CODE scripting easier for anyone to create through the command line.There are still three pending PR’s which need review before the release of the next patch version of NavCoin Core 4.7.1, so there is no definite date on the patch release as of yet.Beyond this, testing and refinement of the DAO extensions has started in earnest. Beyond the regular set of NavCoin Core Developers, salmonskinroll has been a massive help to testing pull requests lately and specifically the DAO. He has been doing some great work to help the developers find and fix issues, claiming multiple bounty payments as a result.As per the requirements of his accepted community fund proposal, proletesseract has committed two days per week minimum to work on the DAO with aguycalled and mxaddict. This will firstly result in an expansion of the python test suite as we try and cover all the eventual logical possibilities and resolve any bugs found during that process. Ultimately the DAO extension is the NavCoin Core Developers primary focus as we work towards releasing 4.7.1 and keeping other wheels moving.DigiByte & Friends 01 — NavCoin, Staking & DAO’sNavCoin Developer proletesseract was invited as a guest on the inaugural episode of the DigitByte and friends podcast. The conversation spans a range of topics starting with the history of NavCoin and aims to educate blockchain enthusiasts on the topics of Staking, on-chain Governance and Decentralised Autonomous Organisations. If those are some topics which you want to learn more about in the context of NavCoin or just blockchain in general then make sure you check out the video.https://medium.com/media/6b6dadb737a64b2232928b097cc0aec7/hrefThe video premiered on the 25th of September and was accompanied by a live chat with Craig & Josiah. For the full experience watch it on youtube and open the chat replay to checkout the conversation as well.NavPay Re-Submitted to iOSDuring the podcast with Josiah we found out that DigiByte has managed to get their iOS application approved in the Apple App Store. NavPay has previously been submitted but was rejected due NavCoin not being on the “approved” list of virtual currencies available in the app store. It is our understanding this restriction has been lifted, so proletesseract with the help of anquii worked to get the latest verison of NavPay to compile against the latest requirements of the iOS store and NavPay has been successfully resubmitted for iOS.There is no guarantee this application will be successful and it’s likely that it will take some time to get it approved if it’s even possible at all, but at least we have the wheels moving again for this dedicated NavCoin wallet on iOS.Community News ContributionsThis month is the first without dedicated funding to support NavCoin’s social media channels and Community News. You can read more about the transition in the article NavCoin News & Social Media by proletesseract.The main idea for the community news is that it is now a federated publication that relies on content submissions from the community.This month there we unfortunately no community submissions so the monthly news only consists of what parts of the NavCoin project proletesseract has been directly involved in. In reality there have been a lot more going on in the community than this news letter reflects.If you’re doing anything newsworthy within the community it is now your responsibility to write it up and submit it by filling out this Google form.Community Fund UpdateThere is currently 25,662 NAV available in the community fund with 3 pending proposals and 3 pending payment requests being voted on.To check out the full list of proposals and payment requests, visit the community fund page of the block explorer.https://www.navexplorer.com/community-fundAnd remember, anyone can submit a funding proposal which gets voted on by the network.

NavCoin News & Social Media

The Community Fund sponsorship of the monthly news & accompanying social media posts has come to an end. After discussing the continuation of a similar proposal, the consensus within the community seems to favour focusing my time more on helping to clear the backlog of pending pull requests and working on new features for NavCoin Core.Not thinking it wise to completely abandon the monthly newsletter and social accounts i have tried to come forward with a way compromise to keep the wheels moving while I focus on development.Federating the Monthly NewsSince NavCoin is a community driven project, it makes some sense to make the monthly newsletter is a federated publication based on user submissions.This means it is each community members responsibility when you have some news to share about progress in your NavCoin project, an exchange listing you’ve helped secure, the community fund / payment proposal you’ve submitted, the youtube video you’ve made, the article you’ve written or anything you’ve contributed to the NavCoin project, you would submit a brief write up here which will then appear in the next monthly newsletter.This will mean that instead of having to research and write the entire newsletter, I will be simply compiling the submissions, adding my own section about what I have completed and circulating it through our channels.I will also cease publishing the Community Roundtable write up, so if you want to keep up with the roundtables, you’ll need to join our Discord.The deadline for submissions is the third Tuesday of every month with the newsletter being published on the third Wednesday of every month and syndicated through all of our social channels, mailing lists and websites.To submit something for the monthly news, simply fill out this Google form.Automating Social Media PostsAt the request of the community I opened some public Trello boards which we have setup so the community can contribute to the posts which appear on NavCoin’s Twitter & Facebook.On the social posts board, I had been building up a library of recyclable content that was used to ensure we had social posts going out every day even when there was no tailored content to post. I have taken this concept one step further and actually automated the posting of these recyclable posts.This bot will read the Trello board and use Buffer to schedule the top social post to twitter and facebook every day then move the Trello card to the bottom of the list. As well as cycling through this content, the bot will also post to Twitter & Facebook every time a pull request is opened, closed, reopened or merged on the NavCoin Core Repository.body[data-twttr-rendered="true"] {background-color: transparent;}.twitter-tweet {margin: auto !important;}The pull request "test commit for social PR bot" has been closed on NavCoin Core by proletesseract, check it out here: https://t.co/gxQor57QRF #OpenSource #Blockchain #GitHub #NavCoin — @NavCoinfunction notifyResize(height) {height = height ? height : document.documentElement.offsetHeight; var resized = false; if (window.donkey && donkey.resize) {donkey.resize(height);resized = true;}if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var obj = {iframe: window.frameElement, height: height}; parent._resizeIframe(obj); resized = true;}if (window.location && window.location.hash === "#amp=1" && window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) {window.parent.postMessage({sentinel: "amp", type: "embed-size", height: height}, "*");}if (window.webkit && window.webkit.messageHandlers && window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize) {window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize.postMessage(height); resized = true;}return resized;}twttr.events.bind('rendered', function (event) {notifyResize();}); twttr.events.bind('resize', function (event) {notifyResize();});if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var maxWidth = parseInt(window.frameElement.getAttribute("width")); if ( 500 < maxWidth) {window.frameElement.setAttribute("width", "500");}}I will still be posting some tailored content and look to further build on this bots capabilities to perhaps report on more NavCoin related GitHub projects or post scheduled reminders about upcoming monthly Developer & Community Roundtables.Again, this is really supposed to be a federated process, so if you want to participate and add posts to the library of recycled content or write tailored content for NavCoin about your efforts, please join us on discord and ask to be added to the public Trello board.Community EngagementWith both of these measures in place, it should free me up considerably to get another day or two per week of work done on NavCoin Core. It really is time consuming keeping all these things running and I have a lot of responsibilities in this project which take priority over curating social media content.The outcome of these efforts will be as good as the effort the community puts into it, so it will be up to everyone to participate.Of course, I am not the only one capable of writing a community newsletter or social posts, so if you’re reading this and you want to get involved with writing for our medium publication or social channels, get in touch!— proletesseractNavCoin News & Social Media was originally published in NavCoin Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

NavCoin News — September 2019

NavCoin News — September 2019It’s been another busy month for NavCoin as 4.7.0 Purple Zebra hits the shelves, the first developer roundtable takes place and the marketing discussions get underway.NavCoin Core 4.7.0 — Purple ZebraThe latest version of NavCoin Core is now available for download.Purple Zebra is the culmination of the last few months of work on NavCoin Core and includes 40 closed pull requests, many new features and important security updates & stability fixes. Due to the security patches, upgrading to Purple Zebra should be considered mandatory and performed as soon as possible, especially if you are staking.One of the key stability fixes was to migrate the database which stores the Community Fund data from being in its own stand alone database to be merged with the rest of the CoinsDB. This both increases performance and mitigates data consistency issues that was causing some users to reject valid blocks where their Community Fund data was incorrect.There are a lot of other fixes and user experience improvements added to the latest release including a sync progress dialog and the error log now being available in the debug window of NavCoin-QT.To check out the release notice please visit the NavCoin 4.7.0 Notice.For the full release notes visit the Purple Zebra Release on GitHub.To download the NavCoin Purple Zebra visit the Wallet Downloads page.Developer RoundtablesNavCoin Developer aguycalled has instigated a monthly NavCoin Developer Roundtable to help connect developers and share project progress. These meetings are happening on the 3rd Monday of the month @ 7PM GMT, two weeks after the community roundtable.The first Developer Roundtable was held this week where aguycalled gave an in depth overview of where he is at with the research of NavCoin’s latest privacy protocol. The main goal of any privacy protocol should be to complete two basic objectives; disconnect the sending address from the receiving address, and hide the transaction amounts so sender and receiver cannot be linked by inference.So far aguycalled is investigating the use of BLS signatures to compress and combine transactions signatures to effectively disconnect the sender from the receiver, then introducing Bulletproofs (Confidential Transactions) to hide the amounts. It’s an interesting line of research and combined with a few other protocols like Dandelion routing and the use of Stealth Addresses, could provide a very high level of privacy.More research is needed before this can be confirmed as a viable approach but as always it is good to see forward thinking research being done with the intention of improving the NavCoin protocols.While the core focus of the roundtables is on NavCoin Core development, NavCoin Developers come in all shapes and sizes and there’s a lot of projects going on throughout the community. If you’re a developer working on something related to NavCoin, or you want to join the efforts, or even if you’re not a developer and just want to join the conversation, make sure you attend the next NavCoin Developer Roundtable on 21 October 2019 @ 7PM GMT.Read the discussion on Discord channel #dev-roundtable.Marketing DiscussionsAfter being introduced during the Community Roundtable at the beginning of the month sundaybrunch, salmonskinroll and proletesseract have had two meetings to jump start the marketing conversations.The main piece of work that’s being concentrated on initially is defining the user types which we are wanting to communicate with, then figuring out what drives them and how we can connect to that audience. A public Trello board has been setup where we are collaboratively mapping out the different types of users who make up the NavCoin community, what their interests and traits are and how we might be able to reach them.The main user groups have been narrowed down to developers and stakers. The assumption is that with a bigger base of developers and stakers more progress will be made within the project and that will in turn attract more of the other user types like businesses and spenders.Currently some community surveys are being developed to help give us some insight into what types of developers and stakers the project has attracted so far to see if we can use that information to connect with more similar people.If you want to get involved in the marketing meetings, you can join the Discord channel #marketing. We are currently meeting most weeks on a Wednesday @ 9PM GMT.If you would like to join the Trello boards and help with any other marketing activities like writing Social Posts or planning advertising campaigns, then feel free to join the team here: https://trello.com/navcoinExscudo Exchange Listing & Channels IntegrationNavCoin Contributor Nio has been working hard to get NavCoin listed on the Exscudo platform. His latest efforts lead to NavCoin being included in a listing competition within their Channels application. NavCoin ended the listing competition in second place which means NAV will be listed on Exscudo.Exscudo is a “nextgen financial ecosystem” which is centered around their exchange platform, trading terminal and channels application.The exchange itself supports more than 50 cryptocurrencies and includes three fiat currencies — EUR, USD and JPY. Fiat deposits and withdrawals are available to accounts which undergo KYC/AML verification.The trading terminal is a desktop application which has been developed by their team of professional traders to suit the needs of professional traders.Channels bundles a lot of features into a simple to use application. Primarily it is a multi-crypto wallet for your mobile phone, but it also has encrypted chat and a social network where you can broadcast messages to your followers. The chat app is deeply integrated with the cryptocurrency wallet, so you can send payments to other users directly in chat and participate in airdrops and other giveaways directly in the wallet.Exscudo is definitely an interesting ecosystem to be a part of and its always great to have more fiat on/off ramps for NavCoin. NAV trading pairs are expected to be added within the next month.https://exscudo.comMagnum Wallet StakingSince being included in Magnum Wallet last month NavCoin Contributor Juguelio has been working with the Magnum Wallet team to enable staking in their wallet.

NavCoin Community Roundtabl...

The theme of this months roundtable largely revolved around marketing and community engagement with productive discussions being had on all fronts.Marketing DiscussionAfter a month of observing the NavCoin project sundaybrunch has joined the roundtable to discuss how to move the project’s marketing strategy forward. For context she teaches digital marketing, was introduced to NavCoin by salmonskinroll and she has taken an interest in NavCoin’s philosophy and community vision.Some initial observations being that we have some good talent in the community in terms of design capability but that the message needs to be more focused. For the most part her participation in the roundtable was more of an introduction to the rest of the community rather than a planning session and a specific marketing meeting has been set to further discuss the scope of the efforts, what our goals are and what resources we have available.If you would like to sit in or participate in this discussion, please join the NavCoin discord this Wednesday 4 September @ 9PM GMT #marketing.Proposed Symbols for NAV DenominationsSome discussion has been taken place in the community around finding a unique symbol to represent NAV in the way that $ represents a dollar.There are several things to consider when trying to decide what symbol to use, primarily whether the symbol is already widely available as part of the unicode character set. If we were to try and create an entirely new symbol it would be nearly impossible to have it included in the unicode standard.The list of contenders were narrowed down to;ꜺŇƝ₦ℕWith #1 being the favourite in the quick poll that took place during the meeting. The runner up was #4 however there is some consideration to be made that it is already the symbol of the Nigerian national currency which could become confusing.It is planned to have a network vote on the topic when the DAO consultation voting system is deployed but for now it seems the front runner is Ꜻ.Dis-incentivise Exchange StakingPreviously discussion has been made around how to protect the network as exchanges are starting to provide custodial staking services. The issue being that staking is how network consensus is achieved and the DAO makes decisions and centralising voting weight with third party providers goes against the NavCoin Core Manifesto to work towards decentralisation of the network as a primary goal.So far the leading idea is to time lock coins into staking cycles which would exclude the exchanges from participating since their coins need to be accessible for withdrawal at all times. It could be possible to have unlocked coins still participate in securing the network but receive a smaller reward and not be counted as part of the voting weight of soft forks and DAO decisions.Not all community members agreed that locking the funds is the correct way to resolve this issue so it seems there is still some exploration to be done.At this time no other suggestions have been brought forward. If you have any ideas for how to solve this interesting puzzle then feel free to join the discussion on discord and brainstorm ideas with the community.Utilising RedditWhile the NavCoin Discord community is often bustling with activity, it is a community which takes some effort to be a part of and take part in. It seems that a recurring sentiment within the community is to use reddit more as it is more public facing which makes it more accessible and shareable.Community members agree to move some of the more important conversations to reddit instead of burying them inside discord.It was suggested to handle support queries through reddit which is something we tried before but found it was not a great new user experience to have the front page of r/navcoin filled with technical issues. Most support queries can be handled by articles in the knowledge base or with realtime support on discord. Don’t forget there is an active bounty campaign to add more articles to the knowledge base and colvano has a DAO proposal being voted on to create additional tutorial content.How to Attract More DevelopersCurrently there are two development bounty programs running, one for NavCoin Core and another for the NavCoin websites. They have attracted some new developers for sure and the existing development community is quite capable and varied. The community is grateful for everyone who spends time to work with us on this project but we still need more developer engagement to hit critical mass.Hopefully some ideas come out of the marketing planning sessions with sundaybrunch and the rest of the community to further engage developers.Aside from future marketing plans, metamizolmann had some good ideas to directly engage with software development companies informing them about NavCoin and making them aware they can participate in this open source project to help up-skill their developers on blockchain technology.Another previous method was to approach local universities and find if they have any computer engineering students wanting to get involved with a blockchain project. If your local university has a blockchain or computer science club then reach out to them and us about how we can collaborate.Donating Stakes to the Bounty ProgramsOne of the issues with attracting developers is that the rewards of the bounty programs are quite low. To help fund the development efforts salmonskinroll has redirected his staking rewards directly to the bounty fund addresses. This is now possible by setting the `stakingaddress` parameter in your config file to the bounty address you wish to contribute to. Or you can map individual addresses to particular staking addresses if you would like to split the amounts between the bounties and your own addresses as example.This facility to nominate and tithe stakes to causes or charities is planned to be further refined in the future, but for now the coins need to be split to addresses to achieve this.If you would like to donate some or all of your stakes to further fund development of NavCoin then please go ahead, every NAV counts. If you need assistance setting it up just jump on discord and a community member can assist you.User Onboarding ProcessMany users are joining the NavCoin community on a daily basis but many are going unnoticed or not engaging when they join. Jottum has suggested to send a survey and information pack to new users as they join the server and post it on other social channels as a sticky.The idea behind the survey is to firstly find out some more information about where people are finding out about NavCoin so we can focus more marketing efforts on popular channels. Secondly it is to provide a starter kit for new users to more easily find out about all the awesome facets of the NavCoin project as it can be hard to see it all at a glance.We look forward to seeing how the survey comes together and any insights which come from it.Using the Community Trello BoardsAt the last roundtable meeting it was requested to revive the community Trello boards to help organise community efforts and further expose the progress of said efforts.Three boards have been setup;Marketing: https://trello.com/b/HrXTM9fo/navcoin-marketing Development: https://trello.com/b/y4yI6VdX/navcoin-development Social Media: https://trello.com/b/r0TRNOWn/navcoin-social-postsThe social media board is actively being used to manage NavCoin’s twitter and facebook posts. Some help would be appreciated to come up with new content to post on the social channels.If you want to add post ideas, join Trello and ask an admin to add you to the NavCoin Global team. Anyone who is part of the team on Trello can add new post ideas to the “planning” column for discussion, approval and scheduling.The boards are setup in a Kanban style where cards generally move through the columns from left to right through planning to done. If you’re not sure how to use the boards, please read the notes which have been written as instructions on each column and feel free to direct any questions, requests or suggestions to proletesseract on discord.We will post any ideas that come out of the marketing meeting to the trello board for public discussion.The Next Community RoundtableNavCoin’s monthly Community Roundtable takes place on the first Monday of every month at 8pm GMT. The next one is scheduled for Monday 7 October.https://navhub.org/eventsThe Roundtable event is open for anyone to read or participate in the conversation. If you would like to be part of the future of NavCoin then all you have to do is get involved. And as always a special thanks to salmonskinroll for hosting the roundtables and taking the meeting minutes.Don’t forget that you can receive this article by email.

NavCoin News — August 2019

NavCoin News — August 2019NavCoin has been integrated into Magnum Wallet, three airdrops are underway and the first steps of NavCoin’s privacy improvements have begun.Magnum Wallet IntegrationAt the end of July NavCoin Community Moderator Juguelio submitted his Community Fund proposal to the NavCoin DAO which would sponsor the integration of NavCoin into Magnum Wallet. The proposal passed and he has been working closely with the Magnum development team to make the integration happen. We are pleased to report that NAV is now available inside the Magnum Wallet as one of the cryptocurrencies which the wallet can store and spend.Magnum Wallet is a non-custodial lite wallet that incorporates cold staking and airdrops directly into the wallet itself. It comes as an app or as a web wallet and the wallet offers ledger support for compatible coins.To promote the integration Juguelio and Magnum ran a successful airdrop campaign that saw NavCoin’s Twitter, Reddit and Telegram channels grow by thousands of users over a short few days as people joined to claim their free tokens in the promotion.These types of projects show the power of the NavCoin DAO and how any community member can use the fund to both advance the technology and increase adoption. You don’t have to be a developer, all you need is a good idea and a plan to make it happen.NavCoin Air DropsAlong with the Magnum Airdrop there have been two other successful airdrops lately used to promote NavCoin to various audiences.NavCoin Contributor salmonskinroll ran his NavCoin DAO sponsored airdrop to the biggest cryptocurrency forum in Taiwan. This airdrop was a big success with over twice as many people applying for the airdrop than anticipated. This airdrop outlined a series of steps that people could do to claim more coins like download the NEXT wallet or test the NavCoin Core 4.7.0 Release Candidate. This approach means it’s more manual and time intensive but also has more interactions with genuine users rather than twitter bots.NavCoin Contributor Nio also wanted to get in on the airdrop excitement and sponsored his own EON airdrop campaign to encourage users to vote for NavCoin to be added to the Exscudo Exchange.

Essentially the protocol makes it impossible to figure out the IP address that originated a transaction on the network which was previously possible by coordinated deanonymisation attacks.The deanonymisation attack prevented by Dandelion routing is present in the current Bitcoin protocol and all its descendants who rely on the diffusion method instead. While the full scope of NavCoin’s new private transactions hasn’t been fully investigated, Dandelion is not part of the consensus mechanism, it operates on the peer to peer network layer and is something which is useful no matter which direction the protocol takes.Once 4.7.0 is released the rest of the NavCoin Development community can work with aguycalled to get the implementation tested and deployed.Community Trello BoardsDuring the last NavCoin Roundtable the community expressed interest in reviving the Trello boards which we used to use to help coordinate and manage tasks throughout the community. Some effort has been made to setup new public Kanban boards for Development, Marketing & Social Media.Each board has been seeded with instructions on how the board works and what each column is used for. The current social posts roster and any cards which were still relevant from the old boards have been migrated to the new new locations.Since NavCoin is a decentralised project it is important for the community to have the right tools in place to help coordinate effort and identify areas where people can get involved.If you’re interested to suggest posts for the NavCoin social media managers to publish, propose and discuss marketing initiatives or collaborate on development projects then please reach out to any of the moderators on discord who can help get you added to the boards to get involved.https://trello.com/navcoinNavCoin Website ImprovementsThe NavCoin Websites Bounty Program continues to make steady improvements to the NavCoin websites covered by the program.Over the last month Roast and Magpie have been working to fix up the Italian translation of NavCoin.org which is now fully translated and deployed.The “Project Overview” PDF that was requested at the last roundtable has been updated with the latest information and added to the Why NavCoin page across the site. You can check out the PDF here;https://medium.com/media/384c7074e5fc8e1b3c7e365b98af7906/hrefMagnum Wallet has been added across all the translations to the wallets page.The NavCoin “Roadmap” has been renamed to “Project Activity” to more accurately communicate that it is simply the ideas and current projects of people who make up the decentralised NavCoin development community.The Project Activity page is also now a dynamic React component similar to the News on NavHub and is being managed directly from the NavCoin Core GitHub project. With the addition of the Community Trello boards, one idea is to also include those cards on a section of the project activity page to display in more depth what is happening in the community outside of core development.All in all it’s been a productive month for the web developers working on the site and claiming bounties. If you want to get involved in maintaining the sites just jump on GitHub or Discord and have a chat with us.NavCoin Core 4.7.0 RC UpdateThe Release Candidate for NavCoin Core 4.7.0 is still being worked on as patches have been developed by issues found in testing. Currently there are two open PR’s which need to be reviewed and merged before another release candidate will be published.The remaining fixes are close to being approved and we should expect to see another release candidate available for testing before the end of this week. Once the release candidate has circulated sufficiently and proven to be stable version 4.7.0 will be published publicly.To be part of our beta testing program please join the NavCoin Core development community on Discord and GitHub.Community Fund UpdateThere is currently 54,778 NAV available in the community fund with 3 pending proposals and 3 pending payment requests actively being voted on.There are 3 new proposals being voted on since the last update.Video Tutorial Series (25,000 NAV)NavCoin Content Creator Colvano (ex NavTechServers) has put forward a proposal to fund a new video tutorial series (11 videos) about NavCoin to be published to YouTube and the Knowledge Base.View the proposal on NavExplorer »NavCoin Brand Coloured Spray Paint (800 NAV)A NavCoin Community Member wants to purchase NavCoin brand coloured spray paint and tag the NavCoin logo in public bathrooms throughout Oslo.View the proposal on NavExplorer »Brazilian Youtuber Sponsorship (3,220 NAV)NavCoin Portuguese Ambassador Giovany Rega wants to sponsor Brazilian Youtubers to create videos about NavCoin for the Brazilian crypto community.View the proposal on NavExplorer »+ More on NavExplorerTo check out the full list of pending proposals and payment requests, visit the community fund page of the block explorer.https://www.navexplorer.com/community-fundAnd remember, anyone can submit a funding proposal which gets voted on by the network.

NavCoin Community Roundtabl...

Continued engagement from the NavCoin community proves to be the recipe for success as talking points and ideas flow thick and fast from new arrivals and old timers.Staking and Voting on ExchangesSince NavCoin is a proof of stake network, the number of coins owned by a staking address is equal to the proportion of votes that address gets towards key network decisions like the ledger consensus, soft fork activations as well as the DAO functions like Community Fund proposals and payment requests. Until now that has meant the main network participants are the end users of the coins themselves, but recently some of the major exchanges have started to provide staking on behalf of the users with deposited coins in their system.There is some concern in the community that since the exchanges have access to a reasonably large proportion of coins, if the exchanges decided to turn on staking it could make soft forks and DAO votes harder to pass.While staking on exchanges could bring a new wave of users to the exchanges and introduce them to NavCoin, the impact of centralisation needs to be discussed and mitigated. One solution that was discussed was to create a tiered staking system where coins that are locked into a staking ‘term’ would receive the full reward and have full voting weight while unlocked coins would have a reduced rewards and voting powers. Since economic nodes wouldn’t be able to lock in the coins to a term it would reduce their weight on the network lessening the impact of their staking and incentivising users to withdraw and stake independently.Some other options were discussed such as building an exchange integration for NavPool so users with coins on the exchange could manage their votes via the NavPool platform. Or potentially partnering with one of the smaller exchanges to integrate voting directly into their platform.Ultimately the approach needs to be further discussed and designed but there are some good ideas there already which could easily help to mitigate the issues caused by centralised exchange staking.Marketing Videos and YouTube AdsAs a community driven coin the technical development of NavCoin has always been innovative and strong, while promotion of the project has always taken the back seat. With the NavCoin DAO able to sponsor marketing activities we’ve seen various projects be funded and produced from review videos to banner campaigns. Some community members expressed interest in using their skills to create short promotional clips about NavCoin that can be featured on the website and social channels as well as potentially as paid adverts on YouTube and Twitter. The idea was warmly welcomed and after some more planning to define what the videos will be about and what paid advertising will take place, we should see a community fund proposal appear to sponsor the work.Community Trello BoardWith the community being active and wanting to collaborate more the need for a better way of organising and volunteering for tasks has been asked for. Previously there has been a community Trello board setup but it has gone disused for some time. The community sentiment was that this is still a good way to organise the community so some effort is going to be made to clear out the old trello board and start using it again.The board itself is public to view, but if you would like to participate and comment on tasks or volunteer your time to have tasks assigned to you then you will need to register for Trello and ask one of the board admins to add you as a collaborator.Potential Europe Meetup / ConferenceThe community is interested to put on a NavCoin Meetup in Europe in the coming months. The idea has not been expanded on yet but the idea would be to put on some mid size event, probably half way between a casual meetup and a conference. The community is looking to connect with blockchain interest groups in Amsterdam, Berlin or other central European cities which would be interested to have some speakers present on blockchain related topics. The talks could span from an introduction to Bitcoin & Blockchain, DAO’s, Private Transactions, How to keep your Crypto Secure and of course the latest NavCoin developments and a few NavCoin community members are interested to share their expertise and experience.Privacy Protocol Debate ContinuedThere has been more discussion around what privacy protocol to implement as some advancements have been made in the field of zkSNARKS recently which made the community wonder if ValueShuffle+ was still the right choice to go with.In the end of the debate it was concluded that we could go around in circles for a long time trying to decide on what technology to use as private transaction protocols are constantly evolving. The community agreed that rather than having non-technical people debate the technical advantages of one technology versus another ad infinitum they would be happy to set the requirements and let the developers and cryptography experts recommend a course of action that meets those requirements. The most important requirements being that whatever privacy protocol is developed, it should offer the highest level of privacy while still being publicly auditable with no private staking. The reasons being that auditabiltiy provides detection of any potential hyperinflation caused by bugs in the cryptography and non-private staking means that the NavCoin proof of stake chain remains secure from 51% attack even if any potential bug in the cryptography was found.With those requirements accepted as valid it is now up to the NavCoin development community and any other interested parties to design and present the best solution which meets those requirements.Community Fund ReserveSome community members have been brain storming ways to hedge the value of the NavCoin community fund against potential price volatility in the crypto markets. As we’ve seen the market price of cryptocurrencies can vary wildly in a short space of time, at the 2018 peak the community fund would have been worth $2.5M USD per year and now its worth a fraction of that annually.One proposal is to form a committee of community members to manage a small proportion of the community fund and realise the assigned funds into USDC and/or BTC during the height of the next long term up trend. The actions of this committee would be governed by the NavCoin DAO and each committee member would be part of a multi signature wallet which controls the funds.There is still some way to go to figure this idea out fully, but it sounds like a reasonable way to hedge some of the network’s assets against price fluctuations and retain enough value within the fund to ensure a high level of development and marketing continues through market down turns.The Next Community RoundtableNavCoin’s monthly Community Roundtable takes place on the first Monday of every month at 8pm GMT. The next one is scheduled for Monday 2 September.https://navhub.org/eventsThe Roundtable event is open to anyone to read or contribute to the conversation. If you would like to be part of the future of NavCoin then all you have to do is get involved. And as always a special thanks to salmonskinroll for hosting the roundtables and taking the meeting minutes.Don’t forget that you can receive this article by email.

NavPay 4.6.1 Released

After noticeable performance issues with the current cloud host for the servers behind the NavPay lite wallet, the system has been migrated to a new host with more cost effective and performant servers.The 4.6.1 release includes some new features which will improve the portability of NavPay wallets between backend providers and automates some of the necessary wallet steps for connecting to a new bitcore-node instance.Although everything a NavPay wallet needs to create private keys as well as create and sign transactions all exists inside the application and is never known by the server, the bitcore-node version we have requires wallets to register as a “copayer” on the server before they can transact. In NavPay 4.6.0 and below the software did not handle the situation of a wallet not being a registered copayer and would require the user to manually re-register, or if they were importing a mnemonic, it simply wouldn’t create the wallet.These issues have been resolved in NavPay 4.6.1 and now the wallet will automatically register as a copayer if the back end can’t find it and also automatically scan for balance on the wallets addresses.This should increase portability between back end providers and remove the requirement to replicate the copayer database across multiple back ends.The second issue addressed is adding multiple backends directly into the wallet rather than putting a load balancer in front of multiple servers. On start up the wallet will now attempt to communicate with the first back end server in the list. If it fails it will try the next one on the list and set whichever one it gets a response from first as the server it will use for the duration of the session.With both of these in place, we are able to add multiple back end servers to provide redundancy and seamlessly switch between them with no disruption to the user experience. With this setup other willing individuals could even set up their own bitcore-node servers and help to maintain the NavPay network.The 4.6.1 update has been pushed to the Google Play store and should be available on your device now or within the next 24 hours.If you use the wallet on desktop, you can grab the new version from the NavPay Project Page on NavHub.Or directly from the GitHub release 4.6.1 Migration Support.And if you’re using the web wallet, just navpay.navcoin.org as usual.To confirm you’re on the latest version, navigate to Settings > About NavPay.Then you should see Version v4.6.1 and Commit hash #6973b74— — —Join the conversationNavCoin Discord |NavCoin Reddit |NavCoin Twitter |NavCoin Facebook|NavCoin Telegram | NavCoin Bitcoin TalkResourcesNavCoin Knowledge Base | NavCoin YouTube | NavCoin Core GitHubLearn more about NavCoinNavCoin Community Fund | NavCoin Governance |NavCoin Core Roadmap| NavCoin Community Hub | NavCoin Community ProjectsNavPay 4.6.1 Released was originally published in NavCoin Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

NavCoin News — July 2019

NavCoin News — July 2019Welcome to the first of the new monthly community news format. There’s a lot to get through because as always the NavCoin community is an absolute hive of activity.NavCoin Core RC 4.7.0 TestingThe Release Candidate for NavCoin Core 4.7.0 is currently undergoing community testing. This release is the culmination of 40 Pull Requests spanning the last 2 and a half months of code contributions from NavCoin Developers. There have been a long list of technical improvements made including moving the Community Fund data to the CoinsDB and pulling in multiple changes from upstream code bases. These changes touch quite a bit of the core code base and require thorough system tests before they can be launched onto the main net with confidence.So far the NavCoin Community have uncovered and resolved multiple bugs through the release candidate testing program and testing will continue until the version is considered stable and bug free.If you care about your NAV being kept secure and want the wallet to continue working correctly on your computer, then you should get involved in testing the release candidate. It’s everyone’s responsibility to participate and help the developers find bugs before they appear in the wild.Even if you’re not a developer, you can try the new version on your system and report any issues you’re having. And if you are, there’s bounties to be claimed by contributing to NavCoin Core, so get involved!Grab the NavCoin Core RC 4.7.0 and leave your comments on GitHub.NavCoin NEXT Mobile LaunchedSeyhan Akdeniz has added a mobile offering to the NEXT wallet range with the launch of the NEXT Wallet on Android. The NEXT Wallets now include a desktop full node which can support multiple cryptocurrencies, a NavCoin lite wallet and now the Android mobile wallet.The mobile wallet leverages the bitcore libraries published by BitPay to provide the core blockchain functionality, meaning all your private keys are securely generated and stored on your device only. It’s all open source so you can review the code and even compile it yourself if you’re so inclined.The wallet itself features some unique features like price charts and the ability to view community fund proposals and payment requests in the wallet as well as the usual things you would expect from a mobile cryptocurrency wallet.It’s definitely a welcome addition to the NavCoin Wallet family and you can download NavCoin NEXT on Google Play today.If you like the project and want to get involved you can star Next Mobile on GitHub and join the developers on the NavCoin Discord chat rooms.Website Bounty Program OnlineThe NavCoin Websites Bounty Program has been off to a great start with over 23 issues being closed on in the program backlog since it launched only a few weeks ago. So far 1,900 NAV have been claimed and 14 NAV staked by the Bounty Program’s cold staking address.One of the first items to be completed was a new page on NavCoin.org which promotes the current NavCoin Core and NavCoin Websites bounty programs.https://navcoin.org/en/bountiesHere you can read the details of how the bounty programs work, what is covered by the programs and instructions on how to get involved.There’s also been a raft of other changes to the NavCoin Websites including the addition of new exchanges, new merchants and changing how the news is run which will be further discussed throughout this article.To get involved, check out the NavCoin Websites project on GitHub and see if there are any issues which you can help with, or create your own issue and ask for it to be appraised for a bounty.NavHub News Running on MediumAnother change to the websites sponsored by the bounty program has been to power the NavHub news with Medium instead of the GitHub based content management system. This means that adding news to the site is now as easy as writing an article on Medium and submitting it to the NavCoin Collective.The NavCoin Collective is an open publication to which anyone is able to submit an article. Whether you want to share the achievements of your NavCoin project, promote your community fund proposal, educate the public about NavCoin or anything else you think is important to share, you can be a part of the NavCoin Collective.If you want to get something published in the NavCoin Collective talk with the community on the NavCoin Discord chat rooms to get added as a writer.Another reason why this change is important from a technical point of view is that the news is now pulled dynamically into NavHub by an RSS feed and consumed by some stand alone React components that are peppered through the Hugo static site. This approach gives us the transparency of running the important parts of the site statically from GitHub while paving the way for some parts to be dynamic. This same approach is going to be used in some areas of NavCoin.org including wiring the Roadmap to the GitHub project which will help to keep the content on the site more current.“All Eyes on Us” Results PublishedThe Community Fund sponsored marketing campaign “All Eyes on Us” has concluded and NavCoin Contributor beekart has published an article detailing the results to the NavCoin Collective.After diving deep into the Google Analytics of the sites beekart discovered that the CoinGeko campaign was statistically a huge success. The banner campaign run on their site saw 300,000 impressions and achieved a clickthrough rate of 0.11%. This might not sound like a lot but it’s nearly three times the average clickthrough rate reported by industry analysts.Lessons have been learned and insights gained which leave beekart well placed to try and top this effort in his next proposal. You can read his full report by clicking on the link below.The NavCoin Marketing Campaign — The ResultsWikiLeaks Shop Accepting NAVNavCoin has been added as a payment method to the official WikiLeaks merchandise store the WikiLeaks Shop. A short list of 20 select cryptocurrencies including NAV, BTC, LTC and ETH have been added as accepted currencies by the shop.If you want to show your support for WikiLeaks, head on over to the shop and purchase some merch with your favourite crypto today.The WikiLeaks Shop has been added to the growing list of merchants accepting NAV on the NavCoin Merchants page alongside 10 other new additions to the site.This list is not by any means exhaustive and there are many more places you can spend your NAV online and in the real world. If you accept NAV and want to promote your business, make an issue on the NavCoin.org GitHub with some details about your store and it can be added to the list.New Exchange ListingsOver the last month NAV has been added to multiple new exchanges including CoinZark, Zwaply, Crypto Wolf & Bitladon. Through the website bounty program the NavCoin Exchanges page has finally caught up with nine new listings being added to the page recently.Of the new listings Bitladon is of particular interest as they are yet another fiat on/off ramp for NAV to EUR. If you’re in the EU and you want to purchase or sell NAV you should check them out.Another exciting development in the exchange space is that Poloniex — one of the USA’s premier crypto exchanges and long time supporter of NavCoin — has enabled fiat bank deposits for their retail customers in 80+ countries. Currently there are only limited USDC pairs and you will still need to trade through USDC / BTC and then BTC / NAV but it is a major step in the right direction for access to and adoption of cryptocurrencies world wide.Poloniex now provides card and bank account connectivity for crypto tradingStack Of Stake Adds Custodial NAV StakingStaking platform Stack of Stake has recently added NavCoin to its platform giving the ability for its users to stake NAV without needing to run their own node. As of now, the platform does require you to send your NAV into their custody to stake on your behalf. Just like sending your coins to an exchange, there is always trust and risk involved in sending your crypto to third party services and we recommend you do your own research before sending your crypto anywhere.Their team have expressed interest in adding a NavCoin cold staking option to their platform so users can stake remotely while remaining in control of the spending keys.If you don’t want to wait for cold staking on Stack of Stake, you could try the non-custodial platform NavPool which utilises cold staking and also allows you to vote for community fund proposals through the platform.Community Fund UpdateThere is currently 57,228 NAV available in the community fund with 6 pending proposals and 2 pending payment requests actively being voted on.There are 3 new proposals being voted on this week by the network.Airdrop of Taiwan Crypto Forum (550 NAV)Members of Taiwan’s biggest cryptocurrency forum will be airdropped small amounts of NAV for doing various tasks like installing the wallet or signing up for NavPool.https://www.navexplorer.com/community-fund/proposal/9cddd76eb34b609163f873bd7425c55dcfa6c3ffd7e871762ec4f440065d94c2NavCoin DAO Extension (50,050 NAV)NavCoin Developer aguycalled has put forward a proposal to fund the development and implementation of the DAO extensions.https://www.navexplorer.com/community-fund/proposal/9cddd76eb34b609163f873bd7425c55dcfa6c3ffd7e871762ec4f440065d94c2Vulnerability Disclosure (25,200 NAV)Bug bounty hunters art_of_bug have created a proposal to disclose and fix security holes which they claim may effect NavCoin Core.https://www.navexplorer.com/community-fund/proposal/9cddd76eb34b609163f873bd7425c55dcfa6c3ffd7e871762ec4f440065d94c2+ More Existing ProposalsTo check out the full list of pending proposals and payment requests, visit the community fund page of the block explorer.https://www.navexplorer.com/community-fundAnd remember, anyone can submit a funding proposal which gets voted on by the network.
