Reddcoin Weekly Development Update


Welcome again Reddheads to another weekly update of Reddcoin Development.

This last week has been quite a productive and busy one.

  • There have been a few more updates to the new wallet
  • Translations have been coming a long quite well with more people contributing
  • I sent a far bit of time working on wallet recovery tools after a fat wallet got hosed
  • Investigating a bit of a surge in super micro transactions in the last weeks
  • Looking at some of the trading volumes on different exchanges in the last week

New v2.0 Wallet progress

This last week I have been getting some amazing feedback on the operation of the new wallet.

While I think it is close, there is always the fine tuning so that the average user has a good experience.
Some of the things that have been ticked off the list include:

  • converting some of the remaining RPC and console messages to be Reddcoin specific
  • Pause Staking while the blockchain is syncing
  • redirect some remaining printf debug messages from console to debug.log

I have also performed a pull of the recent translations into a separate git branch for testing, and this was successful.

Before final release, a couple of things still need to tested in regards to block versions as this wallet will bring the block version up to v4 (DER signatures). So we need to make sure everything is operating 100%

Testnet is running with a mixture of wallet versions that will be tested against

If you have any questions on this, please let me know.

Translations

There has been some great input to the translation this last week. Thank you to all those who are contributing their time and effort.

Dutch was just completed to 100%, thank to elcryptotrader

Wallet Recovery

There are not too many free services to recover wallets when they become inaccessible (and it happens)

I have used over time a utility called pywallet that does a reasonable job.

My latest testing with it was to recover a wallet with about 200,000 addresses and about 4Billion testnet coins

Using the tool I was able to extract most of those private keys

Importing those keys back into a wallet has been a little more troublesome. Normally, you would take an empty wallet and just run the import routine, but alas, it does not take them all (more troubleshooting to follow)

The way around this has been to use reddcoin-cli importprivkey (coming in v2.0, but available as a RPC call in v1.4.1) with a batch script. The script reads the privkeys from a file, and sends the importprivkey command to the wallet.

With 200K files, it is a little slow, but seems effective as a last resort option.

At the completion of the import, all that is left to do is restart the wallet with -rescan to bring in all the historic transactions.

Suffice to say, PLEASE make sure you keep good backups of you wallet.dat file. With that it is a relative painless operation to get going again. If your wallet does become corrupt, there is no guarantee to get the contents of your wallet back.

Chinese Exchanges

Since Gobiw introduced Reddcoin on the 30 April, I have checked in from time to time to see the progress of this exchange.

A quick comparison of the trading volume across Poloniex, Bittrex and Gobiw this last week.

Date POLO BITTREX GOBIW
14 May 20MM 21MM 22MM
13 May 44MM 16MM 59MM
12 May 31MM 08MM 115MM
11 May 51MM 14MM 39MM
10 May 70MM 17MM 234MM
09 May 70MM 24MM 194MM
08 May 102MM 26MM 309MM
total 388MM 126MM 972MM

What is interesting is Gobiw had nearly 2 times the volume of trade this week compared to Poloniex and Bittrex combined.

It is early days in this market and Gobiw is leading the way, in the coming months I am look forward to a stronger Chinese interest.

Getting involved

We are a global community, and cross many borders but boundaries do not need to hinder us.

The crypto currency world has not reached its tipping point yet, but when it does, it is sure to escalate at an amazing rate. There are going to be many ups and downs, and an interesting ride for sure.

If you would like to get involved and dont know where to start, reach out and we will see where you can jump in Deadpool has a great Trello site going with activities that need looking at.


In Closing

I am looking forward to another productive week. With much to do, there is little time to delay.

So where ever you are, enjoy your week ahead

Keep on staking!

Thank you for update,
I will continue with other European languages.
And countdown begins for the new wallet.
I am sure, people will like it.

Gnasher Kudos on trucking on, gotta tip coming your way in an hour or so. :slight_smile:

dragonfrugal much appreciated, but this time paying some of it forward
Serkan34 has done an awesome effort these last weeks with translations.
As in multiple European language sets.

If anyone has something they would like to spare, Serkan34 is quite deserving

Gnasher Your welcome. Cool, nice to see more languages supported.

Tagalog is edging into the teens, checking with my good wife as we go, and tidying up some of the existing. It an easier task that it looks at first sight because there is quite a lot of repetition. But I urge other translators to pay careful attention to the string annotations, including markup (e.g. ), printf style formatting directives (prefixed by %) and keyboard accelerator codes (e.g. O&ptions will display with an underscore under the p [after Alt is pressed] to indicate that the menu option / dialog control can be invoked by the keyboard accelerator Alt-p, with p chosen rather than o because Alt-o is already taken for an adjacent menu option / dialog control having concurrent run-time focus [i.e. you can have clashes across different menus / dialogs because they don’t both have focus at the same time]). The latter point is quite challenging because not knowing the complete context of where that specific string resource is used (possibly multiple uses) it is difficult to avoid the possibility of multiple translated strings resulting in accelerator code clashes.

That’s why, regarding your “&” point, I would like to test the french translation. Because I believe there is the possibility that I have misplaced the"&" as I did not know what the code will be looking at as a combinaison key.

Всем привет и спасибо. Перевод на хинди так и находится на нулевом уровне, а ведь Индия очень огромный рынок, очень мощно растёт и в плане развития интернета. В Индии только студентов больше, чем всё население Германии.

Hello Alex007, yes but, maybe in the future. India is a very poor country.
An also their alphabet is very difficult. There is not any Bitcoin ATM.
You can check ATMs https://coinatmradar.com/
There are 260 million people live in Indonesia. GDP is 2 times higher according to the India. There are 3 Bitcoin ATMs. They use Latin alphabet.
I want to add Indonesian translations this week.

Serkan34 Спасибо за труд. Официально в Индии запрещена криптовалюта, но ведь в мире и наркотики везде официально запрещены, однако это не решило проблем с наркотрафиками и продажей их. Так же и с Индией. Если из полутора миллиарда жителей только у 10 процентов есть возможность выхода в интернет, то это уже 2 Германии по численности, и из этих людей только 1 процент из них станет поклонником Редкоина, то это уже больше миллиона человек. Это просто арифметика и мои доводы. Насчёт бедности Индии, это миф. Индия очень богатая страна и находится на подъеме экономики. Может найдётся человек, кто разбирается в Хинди и сделает перевод. И не увидел японского языка в списке или в Японии не любят криптовалюты?

Смотрю на сайте https://bitinfocharts.com/ разную статистику по нескольким криптовалютам и замечаю, что криптовалюту используют для накопления. В топ 100 самых больших накоплений очень редкие движения больших сумм, в основном сдают на подъемах большие количества и через небольшие промежутки времени опять покупают много монет. Думаю, что социальной монетой Редкоин не станет, скорее будет использована, как накопление с возможностью роста стоимости и обогащения. Редкоин прямой конкурент Догикоину, который начал свое шествие как подарок за лайк. Скажите, люди добрые, грядет уполовинивание Биткоина, а будет ли такое у Редкоина и чем грозит монетам уполовинивание в плане стоимости монет?

2039 адресов Редкоин владеют 95,73 процента всех Редкоинов. Около 8750 адресов (около 22 процентов от всех адресов Редкоин) владеют менее чем один Редкоин. Всего адресов кошельков у Редкоина-38430. Это социальная валюта?
Адреса богаче чем 1 USD-6,042 адреса
Адреса богаче чем 100 USD- 702 адреса
Адреса богаче чем 1000 USD-94 адреса
Адреса богаче чем 10000 USD -1 адрес
Так что социальной валютой тут не пахнет, но лозунг хороший.
У Догикоина не лучше статистика.
У 7683 адресов сосредоточено 87,31 всех имеющихся монет. Всего адресов кошельков у Догикоина 1663214
Адреса богаче чем 1 USD-6,042
Адреса богаче чем 100 USD-12,402
Адреса богаче чем 1000 USD-1,605
Адреса богаче чем 10000 USD-153
В итоге, обе эти валюты социальными не являются и используют их как обычно, для накопления и обогащения. Ничего плохого в этом нет, но статистика суровая вещь. У Редкоина больше четверти адресов имеют менее 10 монет. Это очень нехорошо.

Про Биткоин
Всего адресов у Биткоина-8631714
138459 адресов владеют 92,21 процентов всех имеющихся биткоинов.
Один адрес владеет 145 232 биткоинами (63,649,701 USD) по сегодняшнему курсу.
То есть, 1,6 процента от всех адресов Биткоинов, владеет 92,21 процентов всех имеющихся биткоинов. Редкоин и Дожкоин повторяет путь Биткоина. Если взять Лайткоин, а именно по нему сделали Редкоин, то статистика по нему точно такая же, около 2 процентов адресов владеет 90 процентами всех монет. Лайткоин же стоит сейчас около четырёх долларов и был выпущен в октябре 2011 года. На момент выпуска он стоил два миллиона сатошей Биткоина, а Биткоин стоил 3 доллара США. В Биткоине сто миллионов сатошей. То есть Лайткоин стоил два процента от стоимости Биткоина, то есть он стоил шесть центов. За пять лет он подорожал очень сильно.
Кстати, после Биткоина в 2011 году были выпущены всего 4 новые валюты, в том числе и Лайткоин. Это были первые вышедшие валюты после появления Биткоина. После вышло уже много валют и самая успешная после Биткоина это Эфириум, на данный момент.
Редкоин включен в статистики и биржи многих сайтов и бирж криптовалют. Из четырёх валют, выпущенных в 2011 году на биржах и в статистике присутствует только одна-Лайткоин. Редкоин ещё очень молодая монета и через три года она достигнет уровня 1 доллара США.

Gnasher Если можно, то ответьте по поводу Уполовинивания (ополовинивания) Редкоина. Будет ли такое у Редкоина и если будет, то когда?
