Title: [ANN] RSK - First Smart Contract Platform secured by the Bitcoin network
Post by: RSK Labs on March 25, 2019, 04:14:26 AM

Welcome to the first Smart Contract Platform secured by the Bitcoin network

Website (https://www.rsk.co) • Whitepaper (https://www.rsk.co/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/RSK-White-Paper-Updated.pdf) •  RSK Stats (https://stats.rsk.co/) • GitHub (https://github.com/RSKSmart) • Documentations (https://docs.rsk.co/)


What is RSK?
RSK is the first open source Smart Contract platform secured by the Bitcoin Network. RSK adds value and expand functionality to the Bitcoin ecosystem by providing smart contracts and greater scalability, enables decentralized applications secured by the Bitcoin Network to empower people and improve the quality of life of millions.


RSK's Vision
There’s more than three billion people in the world with poor or no access to the basic financial services necessary to participate and thrive in our society. Bitcoin was created to provide individuals with economic freedom and in our vision also set the foundation for the construction of new Internet for the transfer of value. RSK Smart Contract Network was created as means to bring this vision to life and enable prosperity and equality around the world.


Technology

Smart Contracts (https://www.rsk.co/en/first-steps/) - Write smart contracts in Solidity and develop decentralized applications compatible with Web3 standards.

Merge Mining (https://www.rsk.co/en/noticia/why-should-you-do-merge-mining-with-rsk/) - RSK is the first smart contract platform built as a sidechain to Bitcoin that rewards the Bitcoin miners via merge-mining, allowing them to actively participate in the RSK Smart Contract ecosystem. Bitcoin miners that participate in RSK's merge mining secure the blockchain, and receive compensation for the execution of smart contracts.

Federation (https://www.rsk.co/technology) - Federation members are notaries who act as bitcoins guardians in the Bitcoin-RSK Bridge, obeying the network rules. Federation members are recognized companies within the cryptocurrency industries.


RSK Name Service (https://www.rsk.co/technology/#rsknameservice) - RNS is a decentralized service that allows users to have a readable domain or alias. It can be used to identify other personal resources, such as payment or communication addresses.



Education
Our Commitment to the future of education, because we believe that the decentralized protocols are the technology of the future, and education plays a key role in the adoption of this technology.

RSK Smart Bitcoin (RBTC)
At RSK, the SmartBitcoin (RBTC) is linked 1: 1 with Bitcoin (1 RBTC = 1 BTC), and can be converted autonomously to and from BTC through the so-called “Bitcoin – RSK bridge mechanism”, which brings together Bitcoin and RSK protocols.

This is very good thing happened to see thread for RSK smart contract platform and need of it was being felt. It will help lot of new people to come to know about most secure smart contract platform on the most secure blockchain of Bitcoin. At the same time projects on the protocol of RSK will also get familiar through this. RSK is taking the adoption and innovation to next step.

Yes, miners can obtain fees from every transaction that takes place in RSK sidechain. Read more about RSK & BTC merge mining here:

I think you're right about the hybrid situation and from my understanding, RSK brings the best of Ethereum to the Bitcoin ecosystem as stated by Nick Szabo himself on 2015 about RSK here:

https://twitter.com/NickSzabo4/status/651774200374525953?s=19

On top of that, RSK recently mentioned as the safest smart contract platform in the world:

So much so even Microsoft is tweeting about RSK https://twitter.com/Azure/status/1113848710163849219, also, I kinda feel it's simplistic to call it a BTC/ETH hybrid. There's much more to it.

NOOB question but will RSK trade as a unique token or as a coupled pair with BTC? I believe the earlier since it seems you can couple and de-couple RSK from BTC for trading?

Well RSK is the smart contract platform and runs on RBTC (smartBitcoin) which is always pegged to BTC. While RIF is the stack of protocols offering RSK cloud computing services and runs on RIF token. In a simple word, I think there's no such thing like couple and de-couple.

- What Is The Main PROs Over Blockstream's Liquid (RSK Main Competitor)?
- What Miner Get If They Decide To Merge Mine RSK?

BTW Congratulations, RSK Has Been Merge-Mined By 52% Of Bitcoin Miner, It Makes RSK Network More Secure Than BCH Network.

Maybe, but I'm pretty sure RSK is the biggest out there!

RSK is the name of the network, RBTC is the gas, I'll assume you're talking about RBTC which is pegged 1:1 to Bitcoin, so total supply is exactly 21 million tokens, exactly like bitcoin :)

If RSK is the biggest out there, why is their thread not gaining attention from crypto users here?
As you noticed, so many projects have attempted to beat bitcoin or eth platform, yet the pedestal is still with bitcoin.
Though this project is claiming to be smarter than bitcoin, but how many active crypto users actually know this project?

When I mean the biggest I kinda mean the most popular, the intention behind RSK is not just to compete with bitcoin or ethereum, that's a bit too simple. This is taken from their telegram channel:

Quote
"RSK’s long-term goal is to give users the ability to consume its decentralized services from any smart contract enabled blockchain, like Ethereum, EOS, and Cardano, etc."

While at the same time acting as a second layer / side chain to bitcoin, empowering the bitcoin blockchain. Also if you google Bitcoin Smartcontract RSK is on the top results.

But they are, they have a full page with all the partners they're working with here: https://www.rsk.co/partners/

Collaborating with other projects is exactly the way to go to get noticed, but everything takes time and, as far as we're aware, they're working heavily on the tech to make sure it's as easy to use as possible, pretty neat if you ask me

are those offices physical or virtual ones? you have a handful of partners already in place. i guess thats your advantage over your contemporary platforms.
but im not yet convinced with your tagline as smarter than bitcoin, maybe the concept behind is better than bitcoin. but if you are smarter than BTC, are you going to gain more followers than BTC? this will take time of course...
but im hoping that you will change how businesses operate with your ecosystem, for the betterment of their services.

but im not yet convinced with your tagline as smarter than bitcoin, maybe the concept behind is better than bitcoin. but if you are smarter than BTC, are you going to gain more followers than BTC? this will take time of course...
but im hoping that you will change how businesses operate with your ecosystem, for the betterment of their services.

They're physical! The reasoning behind the tag "Smartert than bitcoin" is because the point of RSK is to bring smart contracts to the bitcoin network, it refers to RSK being a second layer solution on top of bitcoin basically, not meant to diss the development of btc.

Mind elaborating on that second point? How businesses operate with your ecosystem, what would you consider a worthy change?

Temco was the only project I know till date on this platform, eventually they moved to ethereum and have not been impressed with the project's progress. Sometimes I think the bitcoin root gives the team so much pride to be quiet with the project, believing they can always have the approval of people. My only purchase on exchange looks different to other coin and not interesting though can remember why. i noticed the awareness across the globe and I think they need so much of that for better adoption.

RSK is a sidechain secured by the bitcoin network, it is a smartchain that supports smart contracts unlike bitcoin. One small snippet I'll paste below expands a bit more on the usability and capabilities of the smarcontracts built on RSK, here:

Quote
The RSK network is highly compatible with the Ethereum network at various different layers: the execution virtual machine (EVM), the javascript programming interface (web3), node interprocess connectivity (JSON-RPC), and the smart-contract programming languages (Solidity).
RSKVM is highly compatible with the  EVM, but the RSKVM offers additional features not present in the EVM. To make use of these improvements, some changes to the smart contract source code are required. Furthermore, the RSKVM has specific precompiled contracts that provide the bridging functionality with Bitcoin. Approximately once a year, the Ethereum community performs a hard-fork to add new functionality. The RSK community has, in the past, incorporated these changes through corresponding hard forks on the RSK network. These trends are expected to continue in the future.

The Money On Chain team aims to solve the volatility of cryptocurrency by using a three-party system for its stablecoin token. This approach should make the token more appealing and accessible to both experienced and novice cryptocurrency enthusiasts.

The RSK Federation is composed by multiple leading and independent companies in the Bitcoin space. I'm not sure how the Fucktom project works but on the RSK peg the way from BTC to RSK is protected by the mining network only the way back from RSK to BTC is notarized by the Federation. One additional security element is that Federation members run an HSM (Hardware Security Module) so they don't have direct access to the key so they can't steal funds, they have a passive role.

There's lots of stuff going on recently. We recently were covered by coindesk when DeFi was announced: https://www.coindesk.com/bitcoiners-are-building-a-sidechain-version-of-ethereums-makerdao

We were at the LaBITConf to spread the word about RSK, there we shared our plans about open shared economies thanks to RIF. The latin american social media "Taringa!" was acquired back in September, too!

There's a LOT of stuff going on aside from listings, in this very channel we've published announcements, partnerships and showcased projects working on RSK / RIF, we'd like you to consider in these two years, RIF acquired RSK and became IOVlabs, who acquired Taringa! a few months ago. RIF Lumino, RIF RNS and RIF Storage and communication system of which we've had workshops about! We're present in many prevalent crypto meetups like LaBitConf, Ethereum Denver, Shape the Future and more, we also organize our own meetups to get the word out there of what RIF and RSK can accomplish together. If you'd like to know more you can always pay us a visit at https://t.me/rskofficialcommunity, or if you'd like some more information don't hesitate to just ask!

i do agree though that aside from exchange listings, there's a lot more to be done in the background. the project will not grow if the team will just focus in listings. right now, i think, kucoin/bitfinex and others are more than enough. binance or bittrex can wait. but actual development should be their priority to have meaningful value in the market.

Hi! So we have actually accomplished quite a few, in order:

RIF Storage Testnet launch you can see here.: https://www.rifos.org/blog/rif-storage-testnet-launch

RIF Marketplace Testnet, RIF communications Group and 1 on 1 anonymous chat are on their way.

As for RIF communication incentives we actually had recently a workshop where it was talked about, along with RIF Storage, it got recorded! So you can watch it right here, Communications part starts at about 33 minutes in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNf0XpUF5lo&feature=emb_title

So we're still looking to accomplish these deadlines and we have the full month of March to do so! Any other questions feel free to speak your mind

any staking/mining?

On RSK you can merge mine for no extra computing cost both BTC / RBTC, that way you help keep the RSK network safe and still get your regular mining rewards from mining BTC, there are a number of pools already merge mining in RSK (currently 37% of the BTC network's mining power), you can see live this info here: https://stats.rsk.co/

As to how to merge mine, you can read about it here: https://blog.rsk.co/noticia/rsk-bitcoin-merge-mining-is-here-to-stay/

On RIF, there's no direct benefit to staking, unless you're a service provider. As a service provider you'll probably need to stake RIF in order to offer services and the staking acts as a insurance mechanism of sorts. You can read more on the RIF whitepaper as it is mentioned as well: https://docs.rifos.org/rif-whitepaper-en.pdf

Any other question you might have, don't hesitate to ask!

95% of your actual volume is on a single exchange that looks like wash trading


Ideally the majority of trade wouldn't even be on an exchange for another crypto but between users and for goods or services in some way.    Even BTC had this problem of over reliance on a particular exchange to begin with, I wouldnt say it stopped it being valid but just gave it bias which wasn't helpful long term.    Most tradable assets in the world are centered around 1 exchange on purpose I think its just that crypto prides itself on being decentralised and available in all working hours globally.

RSK's 24h trading volume roughly around 25% of its current market cap.

For crypto fairly 'normal' pretty much yea

Hi! Why do you feel we're late to the party? :(

We know it's not an easy battle, that's why we've tried our best to provide as much information as possible, we're also confident that DeFi is going to be key at bringing users to use our platforms. Just as a thought experiment, what do you think would be a good step in the right direction for better exposure?

@disconnectme Its not a problem that space is congested with new projects / patrons. Its expanding therefore matures to stimulate more influx which you see is happening... However RSK has been around and known since 2017 which means it is already distinguished. What I personally repel is how their private sale was conducted and how it starts looking more and more like Algorand mess. Offhand, shady, excessively tortuous, hugely privatized, somewhat bipolar ruse meant to fleece people under the guise of a legit product.

While we agree with the first part, I would like to know more about why you feel the private sale was a mess? RSK itself didn't have a tokensale, it's a side chain. RIF however did. We're open to showing people that what we're working on is real, IOVlabs as a whole has a mission of developing a infrastructure that we hope, with enough time, just like bitcoin, it's not of our control, that it expands out so that the community takes control of what direction it goes.

Its good that RNS is a decentralized service that allows users to have a readable domain or alias. It can be used to identify other personal resources, such as payment or communication addresses.

Absolutely, RSK is a Bitcoin sidechain, pegged 1:1 to it. That's why you can't mine RBTC on its own, the difficulty would be easier than BTC and would compromise the integrity of what we are trying to acchieve (a smart bitcoin network)

its quite interesting that RSK become the important link between Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Thanks, connection between blockchains is important and we think is the next step forward, crypto has proven it has potential, now interconnecting this potential will help it make the final jump into mass adoption.

so you raised such an amount of money and you are still not listed on any reputable exchanges (binance bittrex)?

95% of your actual volume is on a single exchange that looks like wash trading

i am very doubtful about  RSK / RIF looks like a pure money grab.almost 2 years and nothing happen but a long downtrend for the price

Hey Guillau, thanks for the feedback, as you may know we have taken a long approach, listing in exchanges is not cheap, we believe in the value of the product we're building and we have allocated resources more on the production side of things. This doesn't mean there aren't plans of listing on other exchanges, you can expect new listings in the near future actually! I'd suggest you try out Coinswitch, it's the more reliable option currently.

Is this RBTC a clone of the original Bitcoin like most bitcoins on the etherum network with a wrap?
and I have seen several times of RSK  chains such as etherum which has a smart contract with several token bases such as stable coins, I want to ask how many circulations of RBTC are now available in the market?

It is a sidechain, and is not built on the ETH network, it's built on a different (albeit highly compatible with ETH) network called RSK network. There are multiple coins developed on top of RSK as of now, most notably RIF, MoC tokens and others.

You can check circulating supply at any time on the RSK explorer, top of the site, here: https://explorer.rsk.co/

Title: Re: [ANN] RSK - First Smart Contract Platform secured by the Bitcoin network
Post by: Gash on October 24, 2020, 12:25:05 PM
Is this RBTC a clone of the original Bitcoin like most bitcoins on the etherum network with a wrap?
and I have seen several times of RSK  chains such as etherum which has a smart contract with several token bases such as stable coins, I want to ask how many circulations of RBTC are now available in the market?

It is a sidechain, and is not built on the ETH network, it's built on a different (albeit highly compatible with ETH) network called RSK network. There are multiple coins developed on top of RSK as of now, most notably RIF, MoC tokens and others.

You can check circulating supply at any time on the RSK explorer, top of the site, here: https://explorer.rsk.co/

I thought rootstock would add value to btc long-term. I was delusional. Just like any corporate project RSK simply died. You know it had died just before it was born. Im saying this coz tons of ambitious garbage like Bancor, Augur etc. have been sidelined and mostly left unnoticed by smart money. If you are smart and you got sharole you are gonna look out for the best opportunities to make money. 99% of shits dont even qualify for "doable opportunities". They are simply the worst.

Bitcoin itself wasn't taken seriously by "smart money" 'til much later from its inception. You're suggesting to take a big risk, aka "putting many eggs on a single basket", which would be good if it pays off, but not so much if it doesn't. It's not a matter of whether it's being noticed, because it is, there's a few missing pieces at the moment (RIF's marketplace full potential being one of them) and once they're all together, we might be seeing an entirely different picture.

Remember that this is not a race, the blockchain, it's constant work in progress, and building an ecosystem of open sourced content has to be very thorough to make sure there's no exploits of any kind.
