Anyone willing to post a tutorial explaining how to enable pruning mode in Bitcoin core?
I downloaded this years ago when I was learning about bitcoin, now I would like to enable pruning so that I don't need to keep the entire blockchain. However, like much in the bitcoin ecosystem, it is populated by programmers who think clear explanations are things like "just change the command code at the startup run configurizer that qualifies the extent of the output as a framlan quirbity bit organizer. Its simple." I'm not a computer guy, so most of what I've found online isn't clear about how to enable pruning. I understand I need to change something in the command line, but can't figure out how to do that. Windows version 0.14 if that is helpful. And yes, I understand that isn't the best wallet for computer illiterates like me, but it was my first wallet and I'm sentimental :)
Trying to install a Bitcoin core node. I have decent IT knowledge, very little programming knowledge. This is a nightmare trying to get this going. I'm on Ubuntu server 18.04 (very stable). I can't see any application packages available in the software center, nor on the official github repo. I'm getting an error: E: Unable to locate package bitcoin-qt when sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt AND sudo apt-get bitcoin Can someone please explain why it is so difficult to setup a full node?
The next XVG? Microcap 100x potential actually supported by fundamentals!
What’s up team? I have a hot one for you. XVG returned 12 million percent in 2017 and this one reminds me a lot of it. Here’s why: Mimblewimble is like Blu-Ray compared to CD-ROM in terms of its ability to compress data on a blockchain. The current BTC chain is 277gb and its capacity is limited because every time you spend a coin, each node needs to validate its history back to when it was mined (this is how double spending is prevented). Mimblewimble is different - all transactions in a block are aggregated and netted out in one giant CoinJoin, and only the current spending needs to be verified. This means that dramatically more transactions can fit into a smaller space, increasing throughput and lowering fees while still retaining the full proof of work game theory of Bitcoin. These blockchains are small enough to run a full node on a cheap smartphone, which enhances the decentralization and censorship resistance of the network. The biggest benefit, though, is that all transactions are private - the blockchain doesn’t reveal amounts or addresses except to the actual wallet owner. Unlike earlier decoy-based approaches that bloat the chain and can still be data mined (XMR), Mimblewimble leaves no trace in the blockchain, instead storing only the present state of coin ownership. The first two Mimblewimble coins, Grin and Beam, launched to great fanfare in 2019, quickly reaching over $100m in market cap (since settled down to $22m and $26m respectively). They are good projects but grin has infinite supply and huge never-decreasing emission, and Beam is a corporate moneygrab whose founding investors are counting on you buying for their ROI. ZEC is valued at $568m today, despite the facts that only 1% of transactions are actually shielded, it has a trusted setup, and generating a confidential transaction takes ~60 seconds on a powerful PC. XMR is a great project but it’s valued at $1.2b (so no 100x) and it uses CryptoNote, which is 2014 tech that relies on a decoy-based approach that could be vulnerable to more powerful computers in the future. Mimblewimble is just a better way to approach privacy because there is simply no data recorded in the blockchain for companies to surveil. Privacy is not just for darknet markets, porn, money launderers and terrorists. In many countries it’s dangerous to be wealthy, and there are all kinds of problems with having your spending data be out there publicly and permanently for all to see. Namely, companies like Amazon are patenting approaches to identify people with their crypto addresses, “for law enforcement” but also so that, just like credit cards, your spending data can be used to target ads. (A) Coinbase is selling user data to the DEA, IRS, FBI, Secret Service, and who knows who else? (B) What about insurance companies raising your premiums or canceling your policy because they see you buying (legal) cannabis? If your business operates using transparent cryptocurrency, competitors can data mine your customer and supply chain data, and employees can see how much everyone else gets paid. I could go on, but the idea of “I have nothing to hide, so what do I care about privacy?” will increasingly ring hollow as people realize that this money printing will have to be paid by massive tax increases AND that those taxes will be directly debited from their “Central Bank Digital Currency” wallets. 100% privacy for all transactions also eliminates one HUGE problem that people aren’t aware of yet, but they will be: fungibility. Fungibility means that each coin is indistinguishable from any other, just like paper cash. Why is this important? Because of the ever-expanding reach of AML/KYC/KYT (Anti-Money Laundering / Know Your Customer / Know Your Transaction) as regulators cramp down on crypto and banks take over, increasingly coins become “tainted” in various ways. For example, if you withdraw coins to a mixing service like Wasabi or Samourai, you may find your account blocked. (C) The next obvious step is that if you receive coins that these chainalysis services don’t like for whatever reason, you will be completely innocent yet forced to prove that you didn’t know that the coins you bought were up to no good in a past life. 3 days ago, $100k of USDC was frozen. (D) Even smaller coins like LTC now have this problem, because “Chinese Drug Kingpins” used them. (E) I believe that censorable money that can be blocked/frozen isn’t really “your money”. Epic Cash is a 100% volunteer community project (like XVG and XMR) that had a fair launch in September last year with no ICO and no premine. There are very few projects like this, and it’s a key ingredient in Verge’s success (still at $110m market cap today despite being down 97% since the bubble peak) and why it’s still around. It has a small but super passionate community of “Freemen” who are united by a belief in the sound money economics of Bitcoin Standard emission (21m supply limit and ever-decreasing inflation) and the importance of privacy. I am super bullish on this coin for the following reasons:
Only $400k market cap
Supply started at zero, so there are no VC’s and team to dump on you into the pumps - all coins are mined into existence, just like Bitcoin.
It just had its first halving, reducing emission from 16 to 8 per block. Between now and 2028 there are FOUR (!) more halvings, from 4 to 2 to 1 and then finally 0.15 (I guess that would be an 85%-ing :p) and at this point the supply is the same as BTC and stays in sync forever until the last coin is mined in 2140. This simple supply curve is already accepted by the market as a winner, so why mess with success? (I)
Meets Andreas Antonopolous’ 5 pillars of open blockchains test: Public, Open, Borderless, Neutral, and Censorship Resistant. (How many coins can say this?)
Unlike Bitcoin, Epic created a multi-algorithm approach that enables people to mine on ordinary computers - 60% for CPU on RandomX, 38% for GPU on ProgPow, and 2% for ASIC’s on Cuckoo31+. The algorithms don’t compete with one another. This is essential for leveling the playing field and preventing massive farms from dominating. These percentages can change over time and new algorithms can be easily dropped in. You can mine today using an old laptop and in 5 years you will still be able to. Incidentally, there is nothing standing in the way of adding mobile phone-based mining, which ETN showed there’s a huge demand for.
Based off the excellent Grin codebase, which means they continue to pull in ongoing core code enhancements and focus on ease of use and market penetration instead. (Smart!)
Litecoin’s Charlie Lee is out there daily talking about their move to Mimblewimble, which provides free publicity. What people don’t realize is that you can’t just bolt on Mimblewimble to a legacy blockchain, that’s like putting a Ferrari engine into a school bus - it’s still a school bus, not a race car! LTC is doing it as an optional soft fork via “extension blocks” which will not be supported by all wallets and exchanges. Also, anyone using “optional” privacy features is declaring themselves to be suspicious, which kind of defeats the point for people who care about privacy.
The community is friendly and welcoming to new people coming in, with lots of helpful (independently created) tutorials and guides. (F)
It’s already a global phenomenon, with the whitepaper in 20+ languages (G) and (not bot-infested) active local-language communities on not only Telegram but also Wechat, LINE, QQ and other messenger platforms.
It’s only on two random little exchanges currently, Citex and Vitex. Vitex is actually a pretty good DEX with no KYC and a great mobile wallet.
They are very creative - since centralized exchanges want huge money to list, they created a non-inflationary ERC20 tracker token that’s exchangeable 1:1 for coins so that Uniswap trading is possible (H)
Because it doesn’t have a huge marketing budget in a sea of VC-funded shitcoins, it is as-yet undiscovered, which is why it’s so cheap. There are only 4 Mimblewimble-based currencies on the market: MWC at $162m, BEAM at $26m, GRIN at $22m, and EPIC at $0.4m. This is not financial advice and as always, do your own research, but I’ve been buying this gem for months and will continue to. This one ticks all the boxes for me, the only real problem is that it’s hard to buy much without causing a huge green candle. Alt season is coming, and coins like this are how your neighbor Chad got his Lambo back in 2017. For 2021, McLaren is a better choice and be sure to pay cash so that it doesn’t get repossessed like Chad!
ETH gas situation and development on other blockchains
The gas situation in ETH right now is almost as bad as Bitcoin Core's 1 MB blocks. Transactions keep getting slower and more expensive. It's prohibitive for the average user, especially as more normies will come in during the next bull run. Vitalik said 2.0 won't be ready by July, and more people building more dapps and tokens will only make the problem even worse. This is why I don't use dapps, which already cost ETH to do anything on top of paying gas. For all we know, ETH 2.0 could take years just like Charles promising Cardano improvements just around the corner. I'd like to see more crypto projects (BCH, for example) fill this obvious gap that's coming and encourage more development. We can't keep having 99% of smart contracts being built only on Ethereum. Roger, if you're reading this, PLEASE do more to promote development on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. Lots of online training programs like Ivan on Tech, Dapp University, Blockgeeks, etc. have tutorials on how to write and deploy smart contracts with Ethereum (and others, but mostly Ethereum). There's very little information or marketing available for Bitcoin Cash. I know you have a Github but that scares many people who are new to all this, and video tutorials on existing training programs will make the blockchain more approachable. I believe in Bitcoin Cash and I'm a HODLer. There's a huge gap here that needs to be filled. Many people will be migrating away from Ethereum and looking for better options. Many more new people will come in when they learn what is possible with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. MemoryDealers
Is there any guide or tutorial for the using the headless wasabi daemon correctly ?
Hello again, The documentation of the daemon in vague and not detailed as the rest of the documentation. Is there any guide or tutorial for the using the daemon correctly ? How do I set/specify exactly the destination wallet ? and what if I want the destination wallet to be a bitcoin core wallet ? how can I achieve this ? If there is an example like the one in the documents, it will be very helpful.
An Insight Into Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP)
While Bitcoin is the most famous and valuable cryptocurrency, its blockchain faces some challenges. In order to ensure the constant dominance of the currency in the market, the Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP) was introduced. While most BIPs have different levels of potential for positive impact on Bitcoin blockchain, some of them turned out to be much more successful than others.
What is BIP?
Bitcoin is considered the first cryptocurrency and still remains the most successful crypto-project, but it also has its drawbacks. And in order to surpass it, as well as to occupy its niche in the digital world, innovators have created many new currencies, each of which has its own blockchain, designed to provide functions that are not available in Bitcoin. Eventually, one of these new currencies could potentially knock Bitcoin out of the first place. That’s why the work on the Bitcoin Improvement Proposal began. BIP is a document where developers can submit a recommendation to fix a network problem. For example, after the introduction and implementation of BIP 141, also known as Segregated Witness (SegWit), the transaction rate on the Bitcoin network has increased, and commission fees have significantly decreased. There are three varieties of BIP:
Standards Track — these are the changes in the network protocol, checking blocks or transactions, as well as anything that can affect compatibility;
Informational — design issues, general suggestions;
Process — ideas that relate to processing outside the network.
Bitcoin Lightning Network
The Lightning Network is a BIP proposal introduced in 2015 by Joseph Poon and Thaddeus Dryja. It aims to make Bitcoin scalable with the help of instant payments that are performed outside the network. These external channels form real Bitcoin transactions with the use of standard scripts that allow transferring funds without risk. The Lightning network came into force thanks to the introduction of wallets with many signatures, where the parties can conduct an infinite number of transactions without having to store all the details on the blockchain. The only information recorded on the blockchain is the number of Bitcoins contained in the wallet and the percentage of contributions of the parties involved. In addition to enabling instant transactions, the update also provides other benefits for the Bitcoin chain. For example, registration for micropayments, as well as cross-chain payments. Moreover, the update also promotes the implementation of the functionality of smart contracts on top of the blockchain.
MAST stands for Merkelized Abstract Syntax Tree, a technology that uses the ideas of the Merkle tree and the abstract syntax tree. This is a cryptographic tool that allows you to add large volumes of the hash to the data associated with transactions in the Bitcoin chain, due to their layout. Three BIPs aim to introduce MAST into the Bitcoin network. The first is BIP 114, created by Johnson Lau, the developer of the Bitcoin core. The proposal shows how to increase network efficiency by introducing a new scenario, which he calls a merkelized scenario. The scenario reduces the need for large amounts of transaction data while maintaining greater privacy. BIP 116 and BIP 117 were proposed by Bitcoin Core developer Mark Friedenbach and are intended to support MAST in a joint implementation. In BIP 116, he outlines the operation code, which allowed validation of the data without revealing the entire set. BIP 117 is called the Tail Call semantics, and in combination with the first, it led to a generalized form of MAST. The difference between the offers of Friedenbach and Lau is that the first supports all the scenarios that are currently used on the Bitcoin network, and the second supports only native SegWit. The introduction of MAST has led to increased privacy, increased transaction speed, and the ability to include complex data sets, such as smart contracts. Besides, MAST allowed the Bitcoin network to process a much larger volume of transactions and, thereby, increased its scalability.
How many BIPs are there?
Since absolutely any developer can submit the idea of improving the network to the community, more than 300 of these ideas have already been accumulated, and not all of them have been and will be implemented in Bitcoin.
