After 6+ years of development, the infrastructure of the decentralized Internet of the future is prepared to launch Phase 1 on June 29th 2020!
Active development started in 2016 with the takeover of QORA project. Since then, the QORA codebase has been completely re-written, leaving none of the original QORA code. A completely new platform is born, capable of re-building the Internet entirely, on a entirely unhackable network. Built by the people, for the people!



A Truly 100% Decentralized Concept Unlike Anything Seen Before

Not a single aspect of Qortal’s core as well as core plugins are centralized or require any centralized components. Every person on the network runs a core node and UI application on their individual systems, and accesses the network and services via their own computer.

https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Qortal’s First ‘Core Application’ is Completed: ‘Q-Chat'

Blockchain-based, Real-Time, encrypted chat platform! Q-Chat is Qortal’s first demonstration of its application hosting aspect. It does not utilize servers for any reason as it utilizes a specialized tx type in Qortal, to send instant messages. Both GROUP and PM messages are possible.


https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
On-Chain Groups System

The Qortal blockchain allows the creation of ON-CHAIN GROUPS WITH ADMINS. These groups can be either public or private, and can be used for multiple purposes. They can be utilized to create 1) a group that is representative of a country for mitigation of illegal content in that country, 2) for those who need to or want to follow ‘the rules’, or 3) for things as simple as public communication groups. There is no limit to the use of the on-chain groups of Qortal. When a group is created, by default a chat in Q-Chat is created for that group. So you can immediately have communication with your group on the chain!

https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
QORT Coin

QORT is the name of the Coin that is the ‘main coin’ of the system. QORT will be utilized to power a variety of plugins (applications) on The Qortal Network, and can also be utilized for trading value, etc. The value of the QORT coin is derived from the power of The Qortal Network, and will be reflected in the Trade Portal, and its markets.

https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Minting System with Leveling
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/773251561173286912/823270199762485278/qortal_minting_leveling_infographic.jpeg

The method of ‘powering the chain’ in Qortal, is called ‘minting’. Minting is essentially the way you ‘prove yourself as a full node and online’ so that you can be rewarded for helping the Qortal Network grow to obtain further strength and reach. Minting is the first leveling-enabled account type of The Qortal Network. Accounts will gain level on the chain, and be able to utilize that level for the voting system, and anything else in the future that the levels are given extra value to. For now, as you level up by minting, you gain a larger portion of the block rewards as seen below:


Levels 1+2 = share 5%
Levels 3+4 = share 10%
Levels 5+6 = share 15%
Levels 7+8 = share 20%
Levels 9+10 = share 25%


Founders
 are the people whom without the platform would not have been completed. There are a total of only 13 founders who share 5% plus the leftover % from any of the other level tiers that do not have users.

Original QORA holders
share 20% split between them which is based on the amount of QORA held and burned on QORA chain.


https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Name Registration System

On The Qortal Network, a user may choose to ‘register a name’. What this consists of, is tying a username to the user’s account. So that instead of using a long string of digits, someone may instead use their registered name to send coin, messages, etc. The name registration system will also be used in the future, for DOMAIN NAMES on The Qortal Network. Essentially it will be able to replace the centralized DNS system that the internet uses now.

https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Group Transactions

In a similar fashion to the method by which the auto-update transactions are carried out on The Qortal Network, other transactions may take place as well. A group can decide upon group creation, how many blocks until their transaction may be approved, and how long an unapproved transaction will sit on the chain unapproved before disappearing. They can also choose how many admins need to approve the transaction, in percentage. For example, in order for an auto-update transaction to be approved, 20% of the developer group on the chain, must approve the transaction within 1 day of the initial transaction being put up. If that doesn’t take place, then the transaction doesn’t ever go out, and the update doesn’t take place.


https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Asset Issuance

The ability to ‘issue assets’ is a portion of the system as well. A user may decide to create an asset for any given purpose, and issue it henceforth on The Qortal Network. Assets can be used for any number of purposes, including but not limited to re-building the Stock and FOREX trading networks...Securely.


https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Asset Trading

Inside The Qortal Network, once Assets have been issued, they will also be able to be traded, upon the completion of the Asset Trades Plugin. This plugin will be completed a short time after launch. With the Asset Trades Plugin, users may directly trade their assets within the Qortal Ecosystem, for QORT coins, and then to any other asset.

https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Inbuilt liquidity

QORT can be traded for other assets such as Litecoin - Now LIVE on the Trade Portal!


https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
Completely Decentralized Cross-Chain Trade Portal

The Trade Portal of Qortal, (and what has given Qortal its name) is a ‘market’ where users may trade DIRECTLY from one blockchain to another. LTC is now live on the Trade Portal - trade DIRECT from LTC to QORT with NO THIRD PARTY utilizing cross-chain trades with CIYAM ATs.
Below is an image that explains the trade process in the Trade Portal.

Community-Based Voting & Level System To Measure Influence

Voting system is planned for implementation in a future auto-update (a month or so after Genesis).


For The People, By The People With Endless Possibilities!

Background

The codebase for Qortal initially started as the QORA coin codebase. QORA had launched in 2014 and was completely custom written. Since the current team takeover of QORA in 2016, EVERYTHING HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REWRITTEN  along with the addition of many new features or previous features done in a different fashion.

So why is Qortal not QORA?


Unfortunately, there were a number of factors with QORA which made it less rewarding to pursue development opposed to the new Qortal. Factors such as a  slightly messy codebase that made development very difficult in comparison to what we have now and a convoluted amount of coins which devalued the project’s true worth (not to mention an unethical event where centralized exchanges lost QORA holder’s coins and a massive amount of coins remain ‘unavailable’). After considering the flawed aspects of QORA as well as Bitcoin today in comparison to the original white paper, Qortal has and will continue to be carefully designed to provide the world with a 100% decentralized blockchain concept that improves the way we make use of the Internet and blockchain technology!

In 2016, the Qortal team took over QORA development with plans to re-release QORA as QORA2. Qortal was originally conceived to be solely a 100% decentralized trade portal (utilizing ACCT ATs by http://ciyam.org/at ). However, as time went on, the decision was made to merge the two projects into a single, completely re-written codebase to be called Qortal with ‘QORT’ as the ticker for Qortal’s coin.


Qortal is a custom-written and decentralized (fully P2P in all aspects) platform with a core that is capable of a great multitude of functionality.

On top of that, a completely custom web-based user interface (UI) platform that is focused on ease-of-use and simplistic presentation will allow users to easily understand and make use of the complex core with little effort. It will be one of the only completely written-from-scratch projects in the blockchain space. This means it is not a clone of any other platform! There were certain aspects of QORA that were kept, however, nearly everything in the system is completely new. For the portions of QORA that were kept, they were improved upon however deemed necessary to enhance the functionality desired.[/size]

https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
The First Of Many Great Ideas


Those who are in support of the concept of decentralization will certainly be interested in Qortal. The platform is meant to never contain any aspect of centralization! This includes never needing a centralized platform to provide essential services like trading and to be capable of more than any other P2P system that has come before it.

The platform will have a completely decentralized trade portal that allows completely p2p trades in a fashion unlike any done before. The trades actually take place DIRECTLY FROM ONE BLOCKCHAIN TO ANOTHER. There is no need for any centralized control, or even temporary ownership of user coins. The Trade Portal will allow AUTOMATED creation of SmartContract Controlled Trades, execution of trades in a similar fashion to a centralized exchange, with NO centralized aspect whatsoever. The Trade Portal IS NOW LIVE WITH LTC SUPPORT!

https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
This platform may well begin the process of rebuilding the internet without any centralized control!


The implementation of a fair voting system that is based on contribution by users to the network and its usability by others seems to be the fairest way to ensure anyone can get involved without sacrificing the security and stability a truly decentralized project like this will demand. Especially when it comes to addressing illicit attempts on the network which need to be sanctioned or removed all together. There will be a ‘level’ system on certain account types which will allow the weight of votes to be based on the amount of input the user gives toward the overall system’s functionality and usability. No longer will votes be weighted and based on the amount of coin a user has. We don’t want any person or entity to have the opportunity to manipulate their way into this new design and potentially sabotage the good intent/stability of its conception!

In other words, with the creation of the custom leveling/influence system, comes the ability to build a truly decentralized community-run economic system within the network. The ability to create ‘committees’ of users focused on any aspect of the system that may require some sort of oversight, such as the concept of ‘illicit activity’ is also well within the scope of the platform’s functionality.


Qortal has REMOVED ALL RELIANCE UPON MONEY in terms of a user's 'influence' on the network. Never again will 'money=power'. Within The Qortal Network, users are only as influential as they decide to be, and input the effort necessary to become.

Qortal aims to be the new completely decentralized internet infrastructure, for the future world.

Features Planned and Status TLDR


Planned Update – development status (complete / in progress / not started yet / completion & update estimate)

Trade PortalLTC active! - NOW LIVE

QrowdFund Decentralized Crowdfunding with LTC supportBack End and SmartContract Complete with automation of creation – Front End built in QORA; needs transferring to the new hosting method in QORTPlanned for after Phase 2 implementation. A previous QORA application and SmartContract system that allows for decentralized automated CrowdFunding. With added support for BTC/LTC thanks to native BTC/LTC support in Qortal.

Committees and Funds – Complete . Allow users to create funds with shared contribution from Minters or creation of committees (groups) for various use cases within the system, clubs and so on.

Data Storage / Data Nodes and Data SuperNodes with Rewards Planned for Phase 3. Most of the back end work is complete. Rules and some UI work needed.

Decentralized Code Repo (on Qortal itself) Planned for Phase 3. ]Hosting the code repo on the platform itself for no reliance upon centralized services for code updates.

Public Decentralized GitHub Repo for Other Projects Planned around Phase 3. Hopefully the first ‘hosted app’ on the platform. Allowing others to utilize Qortal’s decentralized network for their GitHub repos.

Web HostingPlanned for after Phase 4. Allowing users to host websites on the decentralized network of Qortal. Utilizing the Data Nodes to store the data. Client Side languages supported first followed by support for Server Side; along with rewards for dedication of both space and computer power.

Blogs/Social Media with Rewards Planned for Phase 4. Allowing users to post blog posts and be rewarded for the content. Other users can vote on the content and increase the content creator’s level to receive larger rewards and higher influence. This also needs more thought for the details of the system as far as where rewards will come from/counterparts. Modification of block rewards may be necessary during this phase.

Application Hosting Planned for after Phase 4. (for non-core apps) Core apps are already supported, and first app 'Q-Chat' is live and will run on mainnet on June 29th This will be the support for applications hosted on Qortal; will require details regarding how every aspect will function as well as how server side hosting and sharing of CPU power/Data required will take place within the system.


https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview
QORA Transition


Since the current team took over the QORA development, it was decided that allowing QORA to ‘transition’ into QORT was appropriate. Users who held QORA will be able to ‘transition’ onto the Qortal chain and into the QORT coin; QORA will not be usable in Qortal. Burning QORA by sending the coin to the QORA genesis account enables users to obtain Qortal via the QORA Transition.

20% of every block’s reward, regardless of who minted it or whether the QORA Transition User is a minter or not, will be distributed to the QORA Transition Users. The amount of each 20% payment a user will receive is based upon the amount of QORA they burned (giving them a ‘weight’ as the 20% is split among the total amount of QORA Transition Users). The QORA asset on Qortal is given to the Transition Users to denote the total amount of coin they burned. At the point that the ratio of 250 QORA to 1 QORT (250:1) is reached, the transition is then complete and that user is no longer rewarded from that 20% of the block reward for every future block.

USERS WHO DO NOT BURN THEIR QORA PRIOR TO THE QORTAL PHASE 1 LAUNCH AND START OF THE BLOCKCHAIN WILL NOT HAVE A CHANCE TO DO SO IN THE FUTURE! The information must be in the genesis block in order to be executed in a totally decentralized fashion. Therefore, the burn must take place prior to the launch.

QORT coin (Main coin)
https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/FQBp66GMDjQTMMe/preview

Initial Block Reward is 5 QORT. Block reward occurs on an average of 60 seconds. This number will decrease every 6 months until reaching 2 QORT where it will stay unless voted to modify.
Reward Schedule and Reduction

Code:
[size=13pt]
  { "height": 1, "reward": 5.00 },
        { "height": 259201, "reward": 4.75 },
        { "height": 518401, "reward": 4.50 },
        { "height": 777601, "reward": 4.25 },
        { "height": 1036801, "reward": 4.00 },
        { "height": 1296001, "reward": 3.75 },
        { "height": 1555201, "reward": 3.50 },
        { "height": 1814401, "reward": 3.25 },
        { "height": 2073601, "reward": 3.00 },
        { "height": 2332801, "reward": 2.75 },
        { "height": 2592001, "reward": 2.50 },
        { "height": 2851201, "reward": 2.25 },
        { "height": 3110401, "reward": 2.00 }[/size]


No Total Coin Cap on QORT, every ‘6 months’ there is a decrease in block reward from its start at 5 coins, by .25, until 2 coins is the reward. That is, unless a vote is made with the suggestion of an increase, which is also possible by submission of a proposal in the system and subsequent vote. The potential for an increase of up to 1 coin per block is possible via vote, however, this type of vote can only take place one time per ‘year’ (in blocks).

Then the price of the coin will grow steadily by 10% per year.

The point of the coin, is to continually have new coins being made, we feel that a service token should always have new coins coming into the system, in order to reward the minters more, and keep the fairness of the system over time. Also, people have a tendency to lose BTC, etc... and if you have a set cap, what happens when too many people lose access to wallets?

We plan for Qortal to be running a LONG time, so we cannot have lost wallets become a cause for concern.

Awesome. Nostalgia, good old days with QORA.
I regret that I sold all my QORA a long time ago. Better it was necessary to save them to get QORTAL, when it was possible.
When is the first Exchange planned?

Does QORA still have active nodes?
I would double-check all the old wallets, suddenly there is something left :D

QORA still has active nodes, but you can't burn anymore. Too late now.


As far as 'an exchange'... did you skip that part of the post? Qortal DOESN'T NEED AN EXCHANGE. The Trade Portal, completely decentralized, with BTC support, will be pushed in an auto-update, very soon after Genesis (Genesis is tomorrrow).

"Connection to the Qortal Core was lost, is your Core running ?"



Get this error. I think Core is running. Do I need to add some nodes for connection?

if anyone needs it, I have setup a hosted UI server @ http://node10.qortal.org:12388 (http://node10.qortal.org:12388) for anyone who is having issues with current windows UI...

you can use this, with locally installed core, and everything will still take place local only - for anyone who is having issues with Windows UI installer while we are in process of updating to new version. You can  use this link above to access the UI.

If you see block 1, you just need to sync. yes.

you can attempt to access the UI at - http://node10.qortal.org:12388 to get into your account. This is all still local only. Must have local core running in order for it to work.

sorry I do not want to be overly negative so forgive me-

But I am reading down that olympic-wallper size OP and I am not able to even find the info if this is PoS, PoW, or poop or whatever,
and neither can I find an emission schedule further than 5 to 2 coins block reward-

in 2020 and after a gazillion projects good and bad, shouldn't it be sort of standard to present the most pertinent info in a way comprehensible for someone who knows the crypto world?

Maybe the problem is... You've seen too many 'shitcoin' launches.

If you READ, you might be able to figure out the answers you seek... as they are ALL There.


This project is NOT PoW, it is NOT PoS, it is NOT like anything else you've seen before.


This project is FROM SCRATCH. Completely NEW. Something that most people don't have the time, effort, balls of steel, etc... for... especially to wait over 4+years of active development IN SILENCE, to present a FULLY WORKING PRODUCT..



Apologies if the 'olympic-wallpaper' (as if that's actually a thing) size OP is 'too many words' for your brain to comprehend... I will spell it out for you...



1.  We are UNIQUE - we are unlike anything else that exists.

2. We are NOT PoW, PoS, or any of the other PoWhatever's you've seen before (refer to #1)

3. The platform is meant to be INFRASTRUCTURE for the internet of the future, that will be built on The Qortal Network, as opposed to the sloppy mess of TCP connections that is the internet we have today.

4. Qortal is ONE OF A KIND. You will not see anything like this anywhere else, and have not seen anything like it prior.

5. If you're looking to MINE, you're in the wrong place, as you can clearly see on our 'wallpaper' - we mention MULTIPLE TIMES - that we are not MINING, in Qortal, you MINT.

6. If you would LIKE TO BE A MINTER ON THE QORTAL NETWORK, that is fully free and able to take place, simply get into the Discord, or Q-Chat, and request that a level5+ minter, or a founder, sponsor you, then you simply run a FULL NODE, and you MINT.


I guess if you want a 'PoWhatever', we can call it 'Proof Of Online/LegitNode' (so I guess, it would be 'PoOLN') or maybe, we could call it 'Proof of Legitimacy' or 'Proof Of Intent', regardless of what we name it... all you have to DO... is BE A FULL NODE, BE ONLINE, BE SPONSORED, PROVE YOURSELF A SUPPORTING NODE OF THE NETWORK FOR 5 DAYS. Then, you become LEVEL 1 MINTER.

As you proceed to increase in proving yourself online every block, you obtain 'BlocksMinted' count increase. As this BlocksMinted increases, so does your level. The more you are ONLINE, LEGIT FULL NODE. The more you EARN, the LARGER PERCENT OF THE BLOCK REWARD YOU SHARE, the MORE INFLUENCE YOU HAVE on The Qortal Network.

If you're one of those, who is looking to 'throw money at something' and hope to become influential that way, you will find that means VERY LITTLE in Qortal.

However, if you seek to ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTE, AND BE A SUPPORTING NODE OF THE NETWORK, and wish to be A MINTER, I can help you with that, and sponsor you to get you on your way.


Any other questions? Oh, the reward scheme... right...

Well, since you clearly need things spelled out specifically for you, here goes...


In Qortal, there is NO COIN CAP. The chain STARTS AT BLOCK 1 WITH 0 COINS. The MINTERS of the network (full nodes, online, sync'd, with minting keys assigned) are REWARDED EVERY BLOCK. Based on MINTER LEVEL, their rewards are larger or smaller.

i.e. If you're a level 1 minter, you will share 5% of the block reward, EVERY BLOCK, with EVERY OTHER LEVEL 1 OR 2 MINTER ON THE NETWORK.

As you increase in level, so does your reward, as you have continued to prove yourself a supporting active node, and thus, you are more trusted, and earn more. Once you reach LEVEL 3... You will share then 10% of EVERY BLOCK'S REWARD, with all other level 3 and 4 minters.


You see? There is no way I can give you whether we are PoW or PoS, since we are NEITHER. If you READ, you will see that. IF you refuse to read, you may interject with comments like this, and prepare for my responses. ;)

Here is some expose:

I am not even questioning the technical validity of the project- it seems interesting to me, and I have seen a lot over the last 7 years I have been in the crypto space (incl. the original QORA and its decline) - how could I, I haven't looked unde rthe hood, but on first impression it looks like worth watching.

Neither am I in principal not willing to get into the technical nitty gritty of things.

My point is the style of presentation which is not done in a very comprehensible manner even for those skilled in the art (and don't reduce it to PoW vs PoS)

And, on inquiry, your response, which displays a scathing l33t-Geek arrogance of tech dudes so much in love with their own competence on their high horse that they expect everybdoy else to simply .. get it, or else be deemed of inferiour mental capacities..

Again, nothing about tech, but of presentation and style of community building, many a good tech has failed for not good community culture.

Still early, so you might want to reconsider your attitudes  ;)

Oh, come to think of it: I started looking for a whitepaper in the OP, and the longer I scrolled the more I felt being swamped with not very well structured minutiae and detail, so I did indeed not read the whole OP from first to last line, as you correctly assumed, because I was looking for a WP and a few concise points describing the whole thing.

Crowetic has been working on this project for +4 years, paying the devs out of his own pocket afaik too, I think it's fair to say he's balls deep on this project - financially, time commitment, emotionally - the genesis was literally today, it's a really promising project, one of the best I've followed since I started with crypto in 2013. If he sounded a bit prickly about your feedback on the announcement, try and cut him some slack, this is a BIG moment in his life, a significant achievement to get this far and launch a genuinely innovative new platform, I think he will take any help he can get with marketing & communication in the future, Qortal is very community focused, core principles of decentralization, the stuff that excited most of us that got into crypto in 2012-14.

Yes, consider running a node, unlike PoS & PoW it doesn't require anything more than a commitment to run the software, no need to buy expensive mining hardware or a stack of coins to stake, you just get sponsored to start as a Minter (by someone over level 5), then everyone in a particular level shares a set % of the block reward, which increases as you move up through the levels, from continuing to run your node and passing uptime milestones. It's very fair, and the platform feature set is impressive!

Thank you for the support. Yes, I have been funding privately as well as leading the development, etc.


I come off as I come off, I mean nothing by it. I simply state facts. The facts are, your answers are in the post. (@original replying guy)

Yes, of course there is a LOT of info... this is a MASSIVE project. Even getting to the point I could actually relay the information without confusing everyone was difficult. We will improve as time goes on.


I don't care much for flashy nonsense, I care for facts.

We really did it. Hats off to all the developers involved in this project. We are live, now. 8)

I still remember when Polo delisted QORA, and then, the story of QORT began. A long time with lots of decisions, changes, ideas and a growing community of supporters to the project of all kinds. Awesome, I still can't really believe that I'm now minting actual blocks. It's a special moment. The QORT developers did an amazing job, so far.

I've set everything up, got my minting accounts from my old QORA accounts. The wallet looks nice and clean. What I really like is the API with the Swagger API Docs. This is lit, and it inspires programmers to build on QORT. Thumbs up! Can't wait for the trading feature to get released. :)

This is really a great project because is not based on greed and will bring
pure decentralization and soveregnity to people.

It will actually patch the flaws that were discovered in bitcoin and other pow and pos coins
and that is that you need big financial resources to participate in mining or staking
and are biased to centralization of power in long run.

This is only at the beginning and everyone can participate just by running the software on their computer.
A software that will take just few % of your CPU power and does not require
special equipment (hardware).

Congratulations to the developers and the whole team behind this to bringing this to life.

Your words humble and honor myself as surely they do to the team as well! Thank you. :)

Just allow us to 'work out a few kinks' in some things, and VERY SOON we will see something TRULY REMARKABLE. Let us GATHER AS ONE TO CREATE OUR OWN NEW WORLD. Let the RULES of the WORLD be HONEST and FAIR a TRANSPARENT SYSTEM that CAN NOT BEND TO MANIPULATION in any fashion.

Something HONESTLY ABLE TO BE CONTROLLED BY INDIVIDUAL (and SOVEREIGN/unhackable) INPUT.



I am EXTREMELY excited to continue to have the honor to present such a magnificent specimen as The Qortal Network to the world, and have had an extreme honor in the years it took for us to complete the planning and execution of the project's development. STAY TUNED!

Listing a token would not be in the interests of Qort from what I understand.

Those stable coins are not true cryptocurrency "coins", they are tokens turned into place holders for some pre-determined fiat value.

Bitcoin will be listed from what I read.

The listing of coins/tokens will take place based on vote in the future. At first, bitcoin will be listed, then Litecoin and ETH.

We will then work out implementation of the voting system, for future coins to be voted in as the system was designed.

Generally, everything is possible. But at the beginning, it makes total sense to add those cryptocurrencies which have big demand and liquidity. Also, it's a lot easier to list Bitcoin clones when you already have Bitcoin implemented than listing something completely new.

Generally, I like the idea of having the decision making process based on votes. As a suggestion, maybe it makes sense to combine funding with the implementation of voting based features and listings? Because that way, implementations with high demand can be easily determined AND developers receive compensation for developing features. Keeps the incentive high for everyone. :)

Just an idea, as I – as a developer myself – know that developers need some more than fresh air and sunshine to survive. ;)
But if it's possible to integrate features without this, great. Was just tossing around ideas. :)

I didn't really have the word "charging" in mind, more like donations, which could even inspire other developers to code for Qortal, giving incentive to grow the ecosystem with external applications. Kind of like a marketplace for things people want. With the difference that it's not coins which are traded, but services.

I saw it! Like an hour ago, the qortal core's splash screen suddenly popped up on my desktop, again. Guess that was the update mechanism in action!

How mine this?
quide for create minting account???


Title: Re: Qortal Genesis - The Infrastructure for the Internet of the Future
Post by: allyouracid on July 03, 2020, 06:06:14 PM
Checkout qortal.org (http://qortal.org) – there's a wiki with lots of knowledge.

To answer in short, you don't mine. In Qortal, we have a minting process similar to PoS, but you don't need coins at stake, you need a sponsor who sponsors you in order to convert your account into a minting account (which happens 7200 blocks later, so close to five days, I think).

Then, your level 0 account becomes level 1 and your account becomes part of the pool of level 1 and level 2 accounts, which share 5% of the block rewards (5 QORT each block).

The levels are (100% are 5 QORT, each block):

level 1 and 2: 5%
level 3 and 4: 10%
level 5 and 6: 15%
level 7 and 8: 20%
level 9 and 10: 25%

Hope that helps. :)

Edit: getting a minting account sponsored right now should be pretty hard, as there were only few level 5 accounts on the network after start. So you'll have to wait a few days until the slots are free again, after 7200 blocks have passed for the current sponsors.

Join the Discord, there's a room for everybody who wants sponsoring. :)

Checkout qortal.org (http://qortal.org) – there's a wiki with lots of knowledge.

To answer in short, you don't mine. In Qortal, we have a minting process similar to PoS, but you don't need coins at stake, you need a sponsor who sponsors you in order to convert your account into a minting account (which happens 7200 blocks later, so close to five days, I think).

Then, your level 0 account becomes level 1 and your account becomes part of the pool of level 1 and level 2 accounts, which share 5% of the block rewards (5 QORT each block).

The levels are (100% are 5 QORT, each block):

level 1 and 2: 5%
level 3 and 4: 10%
level 5 and 6: 15%
level 7 and 8: 20%
level 9 and 10: 25%

Hope that helps. :)

Having problems to get the Qortal wallet to run. After I downloaded the current provided version in the opening thread I run the .sh file. According to the log file the wallet should run on port 12392 while the API run on port 12391. But when I call 127.0.0.1:12392 the page is not found while calling 127.0.0.1:12391 gives me a page which says I must enable API documentation in settings file. Any help?

please list stable coin to trade portal

Listing a token would not be in the interests of Qort from what I understand.

Those stable coins are not true cryptocurrency "coins", they are tokens turned into place holders for some pre-determined fiat value.

Bitcoin will be listed from what I read.

This is retarded. Qort will list any junk u submit to them. They elucidated that listing cuckold coins will made simpler than ever before. It is a common misconception that tacky coins should be weeded out, for the sake of keeping corporate etiquette in which Qort has no interest. These guys are very open and will do whatever u command them to do.

I somehow want to agree to you. Crowetic looks like he will do anything you want. He keeps the top developers hidden and only come front and talk only. Who is in charge of everything in truth ? Only catbraf and dmax do the developing and now damx is not on Discord server why? Crowetic talk only and go back.

Right, we will not be listing shit coins.


BTC, LTC, and ETH are the only planned listings prior to the voting system being added.


(even though I believe ETH to be a shitcoin personally, that's beside the point. We will list them until people realize how much better Qortal is and move the good projects from ETH to Qortal.)

Is this supposed to mean something to me? Try again.


By the way... the whole point of the project is for there NOT to be someone 'in charge'. So maybe adjust your flawed thinking, and come check the project again.


MRPD is mad because my devs couldn't be bought, he attempted to steal dmax from me and failed, when dmax told him to get bent. So now he comes in and feels entitled to having developers of our team's caliber without putting in any real effort. Too bad in order to find the best people, you have to not be a greedy fool only out for yourself. Maybe think about that next time MRPD.

It means that last category (levels 9 & 10) has 5 times higher in received shares than the first category (level 1 & 2). People will try to move up to the higher and the highest categories ASAP.

It potentially causes many types of fraudulent voting activities on chain. I would prefer to learn more about the voting system and protective system to prevent any sort of compromises.

Just new here so i have newbie question. How this network protects from 51% attack? It's not POW, POS.  How this "‘prove yourself as a full node and online’" looks in real life?

All Minters sign blocks that is proof they are online. There is no way to tell who is signing vs who is making a block until the block and TX is accepted by all nodes. From what I saw there are Zero Confirmations too so it is fully unhackable. I saw on discord that they consider the 1 block a confirmation. Most coins must lock coins for multiple confirmations so this would mean Zero Confirms the way those Crypto operate. Seeing that Qortal is different it may not even adhere to Normal standards and I hope to learn more.

So if you send a TX it is going to be written to the next block. Unless it is a Free Chat TX that never gets Confirmed and drops after 24 Hours. Great way to implement something and not bloat the Chain!

Also worth mentioning: it's going to take a very long time until anyone will even be able to reach the higher levels. I'm not sure about how long it takes for level 5 to reach 6 (maybe someone from the core developers can help out here... a table with that info would be nice!), and until that happens, the block reward will have declined quite a bit, and – hopefully – many others are running nodes, so the rewards are spread between many parties.

There are a few points which I can't pinpoint how they will play out. Much of the consensus in QORT is new, and I'm not sure if Cryptoland had projects with a similar approach. Things like "nothing at stake" come to mind, but talking to the developers, they've had plenty of arguments why it shouldn't be a problem, long term. Maybe one of them can drop a few words here. :)

Post by: Qortal Jesus on July 07, 2020, 02:20:13 AM
I am an original Qora ICO investor with a level 5 Qortal minting account, I am not associated with the development team behind Qortal in any way, what I write is my own opinion.

So far I have not sponsored anyone, and as it stands today, I don't think I will be for quite a while. This might sound harsh, but it is the truth, so far I haven't seen anyone here or on discord who deserves a Minting account that doesn't already have one, but I will continue observing, and if/when I see quality candidates I will gladly help them get established.

A Qortal Minting account is like an Asic miner, it earns money, but a minting account runs on regular hardware, doesn't burn much electricity, and will never become obsolete, so in every respect, a minting account is superior to a PoW miner, and the block reward is perpetual, so it will continue to generate income for as long as this project exists.

A Qortal minting account is as close to a crypto Willie Wonka "Golden Ticket" as I've seen, and IMO a Minting account is a very valuable "asset", not something that should be given away to a random person who posts their public key on discord, not unless they deserve it.

The more Minting accounts there are the lower the individual rewards for each Minter will be, so the game theory here is pretty obvious; a level 5 Minter should sponsor people that contribute to the ongoing development & growth of the project. This isn't NEM in 2014 where in order to bootstrap a community from nothing all that was required was posting "Interested" in a BTT thread, Qortal already has enough committed people to run nodes now!

Users of the Qortal platform don't need to run a Minter anymore than users of Bitcoin or Ethereum need to run miners; if you want to use the BTC or ETH networks you buy coins, and that's what will happen with Qortal, people who want to use the platform will buy coins on the market.

Every person I sponsor will eventually shrink the number of coins I Mint per block over the life of my Minter, guys getting sponsored today will eventually level up with me, and they'll reduce the number of coins I can Mint.

Minting is a competitive system. If someone adds something to the Qortal ecosystem, makes the value of the coin increase, then it's worth my while, I get fewer coins from Minting but they're worth more! BUT, if all you do is run a minter and shrink my income, and you don't add more to the ecosystem, what is my incentive to sponsor you?

I know a lot of people might not agree with me, and a lot of level 5 guys will sponsor anyone who asks, at least during this initial phase, and that's fine with me, but for those guys posting their public keys on discord, if you want to jump the queue I suggest "doing something", write a blog, send some tweets, add a Qortal signature etc make yourself standout, while the bar is still relatively low. In the future Minting accounts will be very valuable, given to family & friends only, or people who do A LOT for the ecosystem.

Remember, there was a time when a NEM stake that literally cost the recipient an "interested" thread post was worth +2M USD, I think a Qortal Minter account is MORE valuable than a NEM stake, but if you want one you need to earn it IMO, this isn't 2014, Qortal already has a lot of Minters who've been following this project for years.

Before people jump to attack me I'll tell you what I did to get my level 5 Minter:
- I ran a Qora node for years, even when it was "dead"
- I bought a bag of Qora from 2014-16, total cost +15 BTC, worth ~300k USD had I sold those BTC in dec 2017
- I followed all Qora communications for 6 years

I'm not expecting new guys to have as much skin in the game as I do to get sponsored, but I expect more than just posting your pub key on discord, otherwise, I have plenty of family & friends I can sponsor.

IMO it's no different to how "valuable" things work in most other areas of life, if a friend or family member asks me to give them something valuable I will always think "if there isn't a good reason to say NO, say YES", BUT, if a stranger asks me to give them something valuable it's a "transaction", a trade, or it's begging.

A Qortal Minting account is like an Asic miner, it earns money, but a minting account runs on regular hardware, doesn't burn much electricity, and will never become obsolete, so in every respect, a minting account is superior to a PoW miner, and the block reward is perpetual, so it will continue to generate income for as long as this project exists.

A Qortal minting account is as close to a crypto Willie Wonka "Golden Ticket" as I've seen, and IMO a Minting account is a very valuable "asset", not something that should be given away to a random person who posts their public key on discord, not unless they deserve it.

The more Minting accounts there are the lower the individual rewards for each Minter will be, so the game theory here is pretty obvious; a level 5 Minter should sponsor people that contribute to the ongoing development & growth of the project. This isn't NEM in 2014 where in order to bootstrap a community from nothing all that was required was posting "Interested" in a BTT thread, Qortal already has enough committed people to run nodes now!

Users of the Qortal platform don't need to run a Minter anymore than users of Bitcoin or Ethereum need to run miners; if you want to use the BTC or ETH networks you buy coins, and that's what will happen with Qortal, people who want to use the platform will buy coins on the market.

Every person I sponsor will eventually shrink the number of coins I Mint per block over the life of my Minter, guys getting sponsored today will eventually level up with me, and they'll reduce the number of coins I can Mint.

Minting is a competitive system. If someone adds something to the Qortal ecosystem, makes the value of the coin increase, then it's worth my while, I get fewer coins from Minting but they're worth more! BUT, if all you do is run a minter and shrink my income, and you don't add more to the ecosystem, what is my incentive to sponsor you?

I know a lot of people might not agree with me, and a lot of level 5 guys will sponsor anyone who asks, at least during this initial phase, and that's fine with me, but for those guys posting their public keys on discord, if you want to jump the queue I suggest "doing something", write a blog, send some tweets, add a Qortal signature etc make yourself standout, while the bar is still relatively low. In the future Minting accounts will be very valuable, given to family & friends only, or people who do A LOT for the ecosystem.

Remember, there was a time when a NEM stake that literally cost the recipient an "interested" thread post was worth +2M USD, I think a Qortal Minter account is MORE valuable than a NEM stake, but if you want one you need to earn it IMO, this isn't 2014, Qortal already has a lot of Minters who've been following this project for years.

Before people jump to attack me I'll tell you what I did to get my level 5 Minter:
- I ran a Qora node for years, even when it was "dead"
- I bought a bag of Qora from 2014-16, total cost +15 BTC, worth ~300k USD had I sold those BTC in dec 2017
- I followed all Qora communications for 6 years

I'm not expecting new guys to have as much skin in the game as I do to get sponsored, but I expect more than just posting your pub key on discord, otherwise, I have plenty of family & friends I can sponsor.

IMO it's no different to how "valuable" things work in most other areas of life, if a friend or family member asks me to give them something valuable I will always think "if there isn't a good reason to say NO, say YES", BUT, if a stranger asks me to give them something valuable it's a "transaction", a trade, or it's begging.





I think it makes a lot of sense for the qortal network to get more people involved.

This is a good point, good decentralization at the start of a crypto coin gives it a strong foundation to stand on.

Even if strangers ask, as long as they are enthusiastic, support the network, and willing to go through the learning curve then they should also have a shot at becoming a minter.

I am an original Qora ICO investor with a level 5 Qortal minting account, I am not associated with the development team behind Qortal in any way, what I write is my own opinion.

So far I am positively surprised by Qortal.
In contrast to many Bitcoin clones it is based on a new platform. And so far it doesn't seem like many Shitcoins where the developer throws the idea into the room and then hopes that some idiots will develop it for him.

Even though in this thread it is mainly crowetic posting stuff in here, you can tell from both the git releases and the discord how many people are currently working on the project.
 
I've been following the project for at least half a year and permanently you can see progress in one way or another.
I've been running a node myself for about a week now, and I find the auto-updating core very handy. You can mint on a raspi 4b by the way. So low power costs and not nearly as much heat as usual mining.
If you have problems, the discord helps you a lot.

If this continues like this, I expect great things in the future.

It seems like the only one posting shit about qortal is some guy that just hates crowetic. Not sure what that's about.

According to the log file the wallet should run on port 12392 while the API run on port 12391. But when I call 127.0.0.1:12392 the page is not found while calling 127.0.0.1:12391 gives me a page which says I must enable API documentation in settings file. Any help? 


Do you have Discord? If so get in contact with me and I'll help you get through it.

Thanks, I do not have Discord yet. But I plan to set up an account on weekend.
Since I would say that I have a good technological background, I will certainly not be the only one who will have problems with the setup. Maybe it would be good to create a tutorial.

GREED has NO PLACE in The Qortal Network. Should someone decide they have too much GREED and not enough goals in contributions towards a BETTER WORLD, they NEED NOT APPLY.

The Qortal Network neither NEEDS nor WANTS assholes. Only GOOD PEOPLE who are willing to HELP ONE ANOTHER, AND CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS BUILDING A BETTER WORLD TOGETHER.

Install Qortal Core + UI, have your QORA address seed ready, launch the run.sh (GNU/Linux) or run.bat (Windoze) Script to start the core, run the UI, choose "Login", then "QORA Address Seed", enter your seed, done. :)

Can't really tell, sorry. I've heard developers talk about some 20-30% being realistic, which shouldn't be much of an issue if you have a couple of cores.
For me (GNU/Linux with OpenJDK as Java environment), it runs on an average of 5-25%, mostly it jumps between, say, 9 and 22%.

Alternatively, you can install it on a remote server; member Llama has posted a great article on how to do that: https://medium.com/@RealCryptoLlama/how-to-setup-a-qortal-node-on-a-digitalocean-vps-ab70d3be2484 (https://medium.com/@RealCryptoLlama/how-to-setup-a-qortal-node-on-a-digitalocean-vps-ab70d3be2484)
This way, you won't have to deal with Windoze in relation to QORT... might be worth a shot. :)

Disclaimer: I don't know much about the remote desktop software used in this post, so can't really say much about it... but it should also be possible to get it to run without GUI

I'm running Core on windows, and usage is under 10%. Its very old laptop (Acer from 2008). When Core is looking for nodes to connect, then it can be higher usage of CPU, but after connecting it should drop. Also, check version of Core you are running, if it is latest one.

In theory, if I have configured the public node network correctly, old versions of The Qortal Core, will update upon reaching the update-approval block (meaning, the block that the dev team ((with 20% agreement betwixt them)) decided to 'approve' the transaction, thus making it a permanent portion of the chain, and setting a block by which updates will take place upon any node synchronizing as far.

Essentially - IF YOU'RE ON AN OLD VERSION, IT WILL AUTO-UPDATE IF MY NETWORK IS SETUP CORRECTLY.

Finally I got it run myself. I only did run the core software without the Qortal Ui firstly. However, the synchronization is pretty slow and my Qortal balance is still 0, even though I burned a large amount of Qora months ago and I used my corresponding Qora seed to login in to my Qortal wallet. Do I need to do something else in order to show up my minted share balance?

In theory, if I have configured the public node network correctly, old versions of The Qortal Core, will update upon reaching the update-approval block (meaning, the block that the dev team ((with 20% agreement betwixt them)) decided to 'approve' the transaction, thus making it a permanent portion of the chain, and setting a block by which updates will take place upon any node synchronizing as far.

Essentially - IF YOU'RE ON AN OLD VERSION, IT WILL AUTO-UPDATE IF MY NETWORK IS SETUP CORRECTLY.

Running  qortal-1.2.2 now on 64-bit WIN7 and CPU usage is still over 50% on old i3 laptop. Because I'm not running anything with administrative privileges, real loop show starts when right clicked on qortal taskbar icon and start Synchronize clock. Don't do this at home...

Having problems to get the Qortal wallet to run. After I downloaded the current provided version in the opening thread I run the .sh file. According to the log file the wallet should run on port 12392 while the API run on port 12391. But when I call 127.0.0.1:12392 the page is not found while calling 127.0.0.1:12391 gives me a page which says I must enable API documentation in settings file. Any help?  


Do you have Discord? If so get in contact with me and I'll help you get through it.

Thanks, I do not have Discord yet. But I plan to set up an account on weekend.
Since I would say that I have a good technological background, I will certainly not be the only one who will have problems with the setup. Maybe it would be good to create a tutorial.

Finally I got it run myself. I only did run the core software without the Qortal Ui firstly. However, the synchronization is pretty slow and my Qortal balance is still 0, even though I burned a large amount of Qora months ago and I used my corresponding Qora seed to login in to my Qortal wallet. Do I need to do something else in order to show up my minted share balance?
open your qora wallet and open "http://127.0.0.1:9085/addresses/seed/your Qora  address"  to get your Qora seed.

Facing this issue since Genesis....
I would have understood if CPU usage is increased when finding the node etc
But the issue his... CPU usage is high all the time (Post some time after the node is started) irrespective of how many nodes the core is connected to.

I think I might setup a few publicly accessible nodes, but they obviously don't allow you to mint...


I think I might setup a service to host private minting VMs for people. That sounds like something that is a good plan...


Also you can purchase a raspberry pi 4, and we can provide you an image for it with our custom Qortal Kernel, that runs AMAZINGLY.

Any ARM device in theory can work, and we plan to build a bunch of custom ARM kernels.

I have noticed a few things, and I think I will be suggesting a change to the "minBlockchainPeers" in the default settings.json file.

You can also make this change manually and it has helped for me when I had a similar situation.

To make this change in windows

go to RUN, and type
Code:
%appdata%

in the folder it opens, instead of 'roaming', go to 'local'

in
Code:
c:\users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Qortal
you will find
Code:
settings.json
, open the file

Edit settings.json and add the line
Code:
"minBlockchainPeers": 3,
(with the comma if it IS NOT the last line item before the close bracket }, and WITHOUT a comma if it IS THE LAST line item before the }.)

Linux+others

In your 'Qortal' folder, find 'settings.json' and follow above instructions to edit file and add the "minBlockchainPeers": 3

Not sure what is going on with the nonsense lately, but let me address a few things...


The devs are still around. They are family, and not going anywhere.

There was one issue due to some drama, but it was handled in private and the one dev that was gone for a couple days is now back, so again, no issues.


We are working on the Trade Portal, and we're getting through it quite nicely. There were a few things we didn't think about as far as the UI goes, but we're getting through it, and the Trade Portal should be the next thing we push live as far as features go.


I have decided that I am not going to be doing much talking in the Discord anymore... people wishing to get in touch with me can do so in Q-Chat. Send 'new chat' to 'crowetic' and message me there.

Install Qortal Core + UI, have your QORA address seed ready, launch the run.sh (GNU/Linux) or run.bat (Windoze) Script to start the core, run the UI, choose "Login", then "QORA Address Seed", enter your seed, done. :)

I did it in Windows and got constant >50% CPU usage by Qortal.exe. What's the catch?
I watched mine for several hours, more than 7-9% did not rise.

-ANN- Network Auto-Update complete.

That's right, we have completed a core Auto-Update this morning, bringing with it some improvements on CPU usage for those of you who have been complaining about CPU usage...

A thing you may not realize is that the CPU usage for a system such as Qortal, shouldn't really be a problem, once you start to realize the capability of the network, you'll understand what I'm saying...

Qortal is essentially a distributed Network-Based Operating System. So to take 50% of your CPU (which should only happen on low-end CPUs, but even still) is not a big deal.


In the future, you will ONLY need Qortal's UI, to access EVERYTHING. You will never need to remember another password again, for use of any of the plethora of useful apps/services that are available on the network. If you control the keys to a Qortal account, that's all you need in order to make use of everything available.

Unhackable Network to run EVERYTHING.

The first focus, now that we're past the initial 'get the network growing' phase, is the Trade Portal. The Trade Portal is a Cross-Chain Trade mechanism for trading coins/assets.

The first coin to be listed, of course, will be BTC. Followed shortly by LTC, and ETH. As time goes on, and the Voting System is implemented, we can put up proposals for other listings.

Now the question comes, 'what is the value of QORT coin?'... to this, I can only say...

Compare Qortal with ANY other blockchain, then compare the market cap of that blockchain, and the total coin supply...

Take those numbers then calculate what the value of QORT should be based on ITS overall supply... then you'll have an idea.

Qortal can do things that NO OTHER PLATFORM CAN DO. We are WELL AHEAD ALREADY, of EVERY BLOCKCHAIN that I am aware of.

Taking all of this into consideration...


I DO NOT SEE SELLING FOR LESS THAN 50-100 USD MINIMUM, AS A VIABLE OPTION. I feel like getting anything less than that is a total joke, and not assigning anywhere near the true value of the platform.

I personally haven't sold ANY over the counter, just awaiting the Trade Portal's release like everyone else. At which time we can establish a base price, and a stable p2p market for the coin, and give the platform its first 'Market Cap'.

I will not be applying for listing on coinmarketcap.com, however, if they choose to list us on their own accord that's up to them.


I will not be applying for listing on ANY centralized service, as we will have decentralized versions of EVERY useful service in development in the very near future.

From Chat, to Trade, to Data Storage and Hosting (coming soon) - there is no comparison to Qortal in terms of use cases and ease-of-use. No other platform that can do anything like what Qortal can, and will be able to in the future. So comparing it to any other platform is difficult... and so is the comparison in terms of finding a good 'base price'.


But I stick to my goal of not selling any for less than 50-100USD per coin, as I firmly believe that price is  VERY LOW, and that people will soon see this and validate my opinion.

What is the issue ? You are saying that It is not working for you. But you can see QORTAL tray icon (Which means it is working). Can you give more details ?
Also better join discord for faster resolution & easier process :)

Hi. You have high latency problem. You should install some time sync app, to have accurate time running on your PC. I am running Time-Sync freeware app, and it is doing time sync every minute, so you can try this.... You need to install UI, and start is from .exe file, not from Core.

Linux is also a much better option. NTP Time is off on your node.

The chat is awesome ;D

Only thing ppl should know: the messages in the General Chat aren't persistent. They're only visible for 24 hours, so if you have anything you want to be persistent and / or searchable, Discord isn't the worst idea. It's generally a good place to keep tabs on the project, most who are involved in any way are there and you usually get fast help from the community when there's an issue.

Perhaps this is how true anonymity and decentralization should look like? How do you think?
I want to be read and understood right now, and not in 24 hours, when I will no longer need this, is there any logic in this?

This reasoning sounds a bit familiar. ;)

But this was more of a general FYI, not criticism on the chat or anything. Just something to consider. If you want to talk to someone in that very moment, and you don't want that information to stay anywhere and be gone for good after a day, it's  perfect, yes. :)

We got the information today that the trading portal is technically ready. But our main core developer isn't available for a few days, so the launch will happen once he's back next week. This makes total sense... there's nothing worse as a developer than to release something and not being able to react if there are any unforeseen bugs. :)

So seems it started synchronization because now core indicate block height 4074.
But how to start user interface? I can't start it from tray icon menu.

ANN - Trade Portal Testnet going live

That's right, we're going to be going live with the TESTNET Trade Portal today.


If you're interested in testing it, you can either

1. Go into the Discord, and go to the new channel that we  made called 'trade portal testnet' - and check the pinned messages to obtain the testnet core. We will be getting the new UI version and posting that shortly.

2. Wait and I will come back and post links and a quick how-to on setting up the testnet to run the test.


The mainnet version of the Trade Portal, as long as the testnet tests go as expected today... will be going live within the next couple days. We are hoping either Tomorrow or the Next day, but need to push a core auto-update tomorrow to prepare at the very least.


I don't expect there to be any real issues with the testing today, so I expect Tomorrow or Wednesday should be a reasonable target for mainnet Trade Portal launch.

Where can I read your Whitepaper?
And a Roadmap, at least with plans by the end of this year with dates of events?


We have posted about the general idea of the phases of the launch in the OP, and what they will entail.

There is no point in us putting out a 'roadmap' and I have been against them for a long time.


When you're developing something TOTALLY NEW that hasn't been done before, you cannot accurately define a DATE until you are very close to completion...


The whole idea of roadmaps I think is incorrect, therefore I will not be posting one...


At this point the focus is the Trade Portal, of which we're launching the testnet for today. Then within next couple days going to mainnet...


After that, the focus will be on getting a few new features, thinking about the next coins to list, and starting work on the Voting Plugin, as the Voting system will become more and more needed as time goes on.

Took a look at the Trade Portal beta, and it looks good, so far! Still a limited version (as you mentioned when giving us the test files for testing the test net ;D ), but I think we're on a very good way, and it's nice to get an idea of the overall direction. Good job!!

Still struggling to get my client fully synchronized. Very slow, with partly high CPU usage (use an Ubuntu-based Linux distro). It also happens that if the client crashes, the blockchain file gets damaged, so that a resynchronization has to be done. Wouldn't it be a good idea to make the blockchain available for download at regular intervals?

    -[ANN]- TRADE PORTAL IS LIVE!
    That's right, folks... The LONG AWAITED RELEASE of the TRADE PORTAL has HAPPENED!


    The core and UI should both auto-update (close the UI and re-open to get the UI update, core will do it automatically if it's running.


    DIFFERENCES between a typical exchange and The Trade Portal

    • The Trade portal DOES NOT REQUIRE YOU TO RELEASE CONTROL OVER YOUR COINS.
    • The Trade portal does not work LINEAR in regard to trades placed and accepted.
    • The Trade Portal orders at the moment, are SELLS ONLY, in order to BUY, you must click on a sell, and buy.
    • You cannot take a 'partial order' in The Trade Portal, you must take the entirety of the order, or nothing. This means buyers and sellers must PLAN THEIR ORDERS ACCORDINGLY.
    • There are still a lot of features and enhancements that will be made to the trade portal, starting with the minor update tomorrow which will include the SEND BTC section.
    • Qortal has a FULL BTC WALLET inside, this wallet is the one that the Trade Portal Automation ('Trade Bot' for lack of a more appropriate term) makes use of in order to execute trades
    • Everything in Qortal is done WITHIN YOUR CONTROL


    We will have a MINOR UPDATE TOMORROW to include SEND BTC. AT the moment, you can use the wallet to receive, and place trades, buy listed sells, etc... but you cannot SEND BTC, until TOMORROW. (however, this doesn't mean that you cannot acquire the private key from the account and import it into an electrum wallet if you choose to. But it's likely a whole lot easier to just wait until tomorrow.)

    I will be posting a LOT more information about it over the coming days.

    THANK YOU AGAIN TO LOTW, CAT, DMAX, IRONTIGA, AND THE REST OF THE TEAM FOR EVERYTHING, AND THANK YOU TO THE COMMUNITY FOR STICKING WITH US, HELPING US GET HERE, AND HELPING OUT OTHERS TO GET INVOLVED. IT IS ONLY WITH EVERYONE THAT WE CAN MAKE THIS THE SUCCESS IT IS MEANT TO BE!

    Unsure as to why you're having sync issues... What system specs? The CPU usage should be lower now on the newest version, and some network enhancements were made as well. I would sugget giving that a shot...  But you have to also realize, a network with as much capability as Qortal, is going to use SOME system resources... it IS after all, capable of rebuilding the entire internet.

    However, that being said, multiple things you've said are confusing to me...

    1. I have not had any issues sync'ing on any machine, aside from the very start in which adding
    Code:
    "minBlockchainPeers": 3
    into the settings.json file fixed the issue. But I only had that happen on Windows machines for some reason, never linux...

    2. The db should not have to be restarted if you don't sync all the way... in fact, it's better if you do NOT do that, and simply let the system correct itself. It will certainly do so, and you won't have to worry.

    3. Giving a downloadable copy of the db is possible, but not recommended, especially now with the BTC wallet and Trade Portal, as once you login to the UI tied to the core, the db is then personalized with your BTC information, so you cannot share it. Minting also personalizes your db, but that isn't as important as the only thing the person can do with it is mint for you in that case... That being said... I think we WILL provide an 'official download' of the db... regardless of the fact that it shouldn't be necessary at all.

      For those of you having issues getting sync'd on Windows... here is a solution (temporary) until the next full release addresses it...

      Download this - https://cloud.crowetic.com/s/jb2KATD85ioJNBL/download

      (this is a copy of the latest release zip, with a start.bat, and changed settings.json file.)

      Extract files

      Copy your existing db folder from
      Code:
      C:\Users\YOUR-USERNAME\AppData\Local\Qortal\db

      (default location is here, if you have another, copy from your location obviouisly)



      Run start.bat

      and LEAVE CMD WINDOW THAT COMES UP OPEN/MINIMIZED, and Qortal should start, and run like normal.

      Just REMEMBER TO START THIS ONE AND NOT YOUR INSTALLED VERSION FOR NOW. WE CAN SWITCH BACK AFTER NEXT UPDATE.

      Everything should sync up just fine.


      REMEMBER - Your DB now is personalized with ALL OF YOUR TRADE INFO, and encrypted access to your BTC keys... so DO NOT SHARE IT. Also remember, if you delete your db you're deleting ALL OF YOUR TRADE HISTORY.


      Welcome to DECENTRALIZED. No domains, no hosted anything, everything LOCAL on YOUR SYSTEM. Which means too, that basically 'you're the server'... so act accordingly with database stuff, back it up if you intend to mess with it at all, etc... You are now IN CONTROL OF YOUR OWN LIFE. THIS COMES WITH SOME ADDED RESPONSIBILITY AND A BUNCH OF ADDED AWESOMENESS.

      New UI version build in progress, release will take place in a few minutes. This starts the first OFFICIAL TRADE DAY OF THE PORTAL... with fixes for the live sell orders to be listed by price both directions, and ability to SEND BTC from the internal BTC wallet in Qortal.

      A bounty is up for 10-20 QORT for anyone who will do a walk-thru video PROFESSIONAL. See my post below from discord for more info...



      Quote from: Discord
      @here - I am officially putting up a 'bounty' of 10 QORT for How-To videos of all kinds, as long as they are DONE PROFESSIONALLY.
      [3:48 PM]
      I will pay anyone who does professional walk-thru on any Qortal Feature, ESPECIALLY THE TRADE PORTAL AND UPLOADS IT TO YOUTUBE - 10 QORT.
      [3:49 PM]
      if the video is good enough that I don't have to do one... I will double the amount. This video would include a COMPLETE WALK-THRU, INCLUDING SENDING BTC TO THE INTERNAL WALLET, AND EXECUTION OF A BUY FROM THE LIST OF PLACED SELLS.
      [3:49 PM]
      AND EDITING OF THE VIDEO SO THERE ISN'T WAITING IN BETWEEN THE LONG ASS BTC CONFIRMATION TIMES.
      [3:49 PM]
      -_-
      [3:50 PM]
      The sooner we get people USING THE PORTAL, the sooner the devs stop having to worry about money, and can FULLY FOCUS ON MAKING QORTAL AMAZING.
      [3:51 PM]
      BUYERS ON THE PORTAL ARE EXTREMELY NEEDED AT THE MOMENT, TELL YOUR FRIENDS. AS SOON AS THIS UPDATE TAKES PLACE, IT BECOMES VERY SIMPLE TO USE.

        Uh, for one, we didn't have listings in order... for two... there were sync issues on Windows that I had to come up with solution for... third... there aren't that many people aware of it yet... it will take a little time for people to become aware, get installed for the first time, and get BTC into the wallet, etc... also to understand how everything works, and everything else...

        Thinking that IMMEDIATELY there would be tons of volume, is ignorant. Saying my prediction flopped before more than 15 people have likely seen it... is silly.

        I will be starting some tutorials within the next couple days, so that people can see exactly how to use the cross-chain trades in the Trade Portal inside Qortal.


        You simply

        1. Fund your BTC wallet inside Qortal - Wallets - BTC wallet - get your address and send it BTC.

        (right now there are a few little 'issues' with the BTC wallet, as we're reliant upon the electrum network (to avoid needing BTC full nodes) and sometimes the reply from electrum isn't fast enough. We will be addressing this in future versions... But either way, DO NOT DELETE YOUR CHAIN DB... it has all your encrypted keys and local stored trades, so you'll want to keep it. Sync issues can be resolved without deleting your db, so you shouldn't ever have any reason to delete it.)

        2. Go to 'Trade Portal' and see the open market sells that are listed.

        (at the moment you cannot list buy orders, you can only list sells, and buyers can choose the sell, click it, and buy it.)

        (REMEMBER - since this is a TRUE decentralized cross-chain trade, you may only accept the FULL order that is listed. There ARE NO PARTIAL ORDERS on cross-chain trading systems. In fact, that's a good way to know if you are actually trading cross-chain or not. We may be able to in the future, with the use of the BTC lightning network, change this... but right now this is how it is.)

        3. Click the order you want to buy, and click 'buy' at the bottom where buy and sell orders are placed.

        4. The 'trade bot' will take over from there, accepting the seller's placed ACCT AT, and finishing the cross-chain trade for you.

        (REMEMBER - you MUST keep your Qortal Core running, you don't have to keep your UI running, but the core must be running in order for the bot to be able to accomplish its tasks. Do not close your core.)

        That's it! We have made the process quite simple considering the level of complexity of the tasks actually taking place when these orders are fulfilled. I think once everything is ironed out just a little more, people will find they like the Trade Portal MUCH better than any exchange.


        We will be working on listing Litecoin into Qortal next, then we will focus on the Voting System, so that all future decisions may be made in the method in which Qortal was intended, by the community vote.

        Fixed with complete deinstall/install of Core and UI. BTW, latest UI (1.2) was not possible to install, double clicking installation exe did nothing. Installed older version of UI and did upgrade afterwards.
        Conclusion: Qortal is not working as it should on 64-bit WIN7 when used with non-administrative account. UI is not saving accounts, click on "synchronize clock" starts endless loop and online upgrades can break installation and result with errors like upper one.

        Still struggling to get my client fully synchronized. Very slow, with partly high CPU usage (use an Ubuntu-based Linux distro). It also happens that if the client crashes, the blockchain file gets damaged, so that a resynchronization has to be done. Wouldn't it be a good idea to make the blockchain available for download at regular intervals?

        Blockchain available for download is here: https://cryptostats.cc/qort_explorer/index.php -> QORTAL Bootstrap

        Thanks, unfortunately, the download link does not work. Qora Bootstrap link on the site points to https://cryptostats.cc/qort_explorer/qortal-bootstrap.tar.gz which returns an 404 error. Any alternative available?

        Still struggling to get my client fully synchronized. Very slow, with partly high CPU usage (use an Ubuntu-based Linux distro). It also happens that if the client crashes, the blockchain file gets damaged, so that a resynchronization has to be done. Wouldn't it be a good idea to make the blockchain available for download at regular intervals?

        -ANNouncement- Stability issues and CPU usage issues RESOLVED. WINDOWS USERS MUST RUN THIS INSTALLER for version 1.3.2!

        Version 1.3.2 of the Qortal Core - MAJOR stability and performance increases with CPU decrease. Windows users have to run this installer REGARDLESS. Even if they're able to get the auto-update and stay sync'd... This version has an improvement in the .exe, which can only be modified via installation, and the Auto-Update process cannot make this change. Therefore, windows users specifically, must update MANUALLY for this version. After this version no further manual updates will be required. Linux users do not have to do anything and can update automatically or manually.

        Automatic Update will take place tomorrow.


        Downloads here - https://github.com/Qortal/qortal/releases

        Windows direct installer - https://github.com/Qortal/qortal/releases/download/v1.3.2/Qortal-1.3.2.exe

        Universal/Linux/Mac direct download - https://github.com/Qortal/qortal/releases/download/v1.3.2/qortal-1.3.2.zip

        • 1.3.0 is VERY old, and had multiple bugs. We have not issued an auto-update to remove this version, as the update will do db changes that take time at launch. So we needed people to be updated FIRST, before auto-update potentially took a lot of nodes down at the same time for too long.
        • Windows users MUST run 1.3.2 installer REGARDLESS.
        • Windows bugs all resolved.
        • Stability issues resolved.
        • Sync issues resolved.
        • Now the fun begins!


        We are extremely pleased to have finally resolved the multiple small issues that caused larger ones, and plagued us since the Trade Portal launch. Now we are certain we have again a STABLE network, on which focus can begin on further improvements, and BRINGING INTERESTED PRIVATE INVESTORS to the project, where they can BUY DIRECTLY ACROSS CHAIN FROM BTC and soon, LTC as well.

        We will be working on the following, next...

        - Addition of LTC to the Trade Portal (BTC is great and all, but it is simply too slow for a portal, as it requires multiple confirms per trade to take place cross-chain. Therefore, a similar, yet faster option, is LTC, Litecoin, which has much faster block times, and therefore will be much faster overall. BTC is 'gold' anyway, therefore IMO isn't the greatest to trade with unless dealing in large amounts. LTC will be a welcome listing to the Trade Portal.

        - After listing LTC, we will begin work on the Voting System of Qortal. This system is what is meant to guide the platform into the future, lead by the community, and votes that are weighted based on your level, which comes directly from your personal contributions towards Qortal's network, or overall ecosystem in any of the agreed and programmed methods. Right now the only method is Minting, but that will change in the future, as we continue along the plan of the multiple launch phases.

        - We will also now with the network being stable, be able to start reaching out to our friends we know with finances, and interest in owning a piece of the next generation of the internet (along with every business built atop it, and every service working within it) by purchasing some QORT coins on the Trade Portal. (with NO RISK OF LOSS CAUSED BY HACKS AND NONSENSE LIKE ON A CENTRALIZED EXCHANGE.)

        - Remember that Qortal is not 'new', we have been building it for a very long time, and we have in-depth plans to span decades, through multiple dev teams. We will always need people, devs, and those willing to assist in any possible way, to join the network, get yourself established, and begin to see the awesomeness so that you can then relay it to your friends and family, and get them setup in the world's new system.



        We look forward to the future with great anticipation. We have much in the pipe that will blow a lot of minds, and I for one am very excited about it.

        I can confirm lower CPU usage of 1.3.2 and 1.3.3 Qortal core. I'ts around half of what it was with previous versions. Even UI is now more responsive with lower CPU usage of the core.

        that they prefer to make money off passively staking the coins is a clear indicator of people's stupidity. How short-sighted, how provincial and limited in intellectual sense a human head should be to keep its body and free range mind within the constrains imposed on it by adherence to lazy ways of decision making. Unproductive at best this approach is. But what do I know. May these stakers be buried in a sauce of their own damnation.

When I asked for sponsorship for the second time in the wallet chat, the developer began to be smart, who are you? what did you do good for the coin? freak. in addition, the only coin that I had and that I placed in the order on the trading portal was missing (((this is a shitcoin from a developer with an inflated self-esteem, which is worth nothing. and I wish the price to be below zero in the future.

        This is easy to solve, what is the address to your minter?

        There is a public blockchain explorer and several API enabled public nodes that can be used in order to verify your claim.

        > One must not come in 'please sponsor me'. Instead, one shall come in and explain a bit about themselves, who they are, and why they think they would be a good fit to be a Minter of The Qortal Network.

        > You have to know your sponsor and sponser have to know you.... if you do not know any one you have to work hard to build your reputation in Qortal which means use the Qortal as your server and if we see you are working responsible we will sponser you for sure. Good luck

        > ATTENTION: the idea is to only have one account on the Qortal Network. You may have multiple nodes connected to one account. Additional nodes are currently used for redundancy and a great way to ensure you stay online and minting if a node goes down.

        > I will be choosing my sponsees on an interview basis from now on, something I call "Proof of Personality" This is a short interview that will introduce you to us and tell us more about you and how amazing you are. So if you want a sponsorship from me, just let me know and we can do an interview asap.

        > To be clear, you do not need a sponsorship to be part of the community and to use qortal. You need a sponsorship to be a rewarded node, rewarded nodes are rewarded as compensation for stability and dedication

        In short, if nobody knows who you are, asking for sponsorship will get you nowhere.  
        If you are new, then stick around and see what you can do for the Qortal network. Prove your worth. Then if somebody appreciates your contribution, they might sponsor you.

        ANN - VERSION 1.3.4 WITH FULLY STABLE BTC AND TRADE PORTAL NOW LIVE, AUTO-UPDATE ISSUED.

        As stated above, the new version 1.3.4 has FULLY STABILIZED EVERYTHING. Including BTC wallet, and Cross-Chain Trade Portal.


        We are extremely pleased to announce that everything is now fully stable. Now the fun can truly begin.


        After a TREMENDOUS effort from our community and team, we have fully stabilized every aspect of our FULLY CUSTOM CODEBASE. Now we can focus on getting users to the portal, as well as moving on to the next stages.

        - We will be listing LTC on the portal soon.

        - We are considering taking an 'un-official vote' (since we haven't built the internal voting system yet) in Discord, as far as listing DGB and LTC prior to building out the voting system on-chain.

        - We hope everyone is as excited as we are, and can get some people interested in supporting the project now in a totally trustless fashion, BY PURCHASING QORT ON THE TRADE PORTAL DIRECTLY WITH BTC.





        We have supported development and everything completely ourselves, doing everything the right way, awaiting the release of THIS VERSION, to stabilize the portal and sync issues enough to be able to confidently push the use of the Trade portal to acquire QORT, for investors interested in supporting the project. NONE of the devs or anyone that assisted in the development, has been paid aside from me personally supporting them, WAITING FOR THIS POINT, that we can all be PAID BY THE PLATFORM ITSELF, and those interested in OWNING A PIECE OF THE NEW INTERNET, AND EVERY COMPANY BUILT ON TOP OF IT, AT THE SAME TIME BY PURCHASING SOME QORT ON THE TRADE PORTAL.

        to purchase on the trade portal, it is VERY SIMPLE.


        1. Install and sync the core

        2. install the UI

        3. Go to wallet-BTC and get your BTC address for your internal native Qortal BTC wallet.

        4. Send BTC to your native Qortal BTC wallet

        5. Go to 'Trade Portal' in the UI

        6. See the listed sell orders on the order books, and find one you would like to purchase.

        7. click the order you want, then click buy, and WATCH THE MAGIC HAPPEN.


        **remember - since we're doing an ACTUAL CROSS-CHAIN TRADE, there are a few things to keep in mind...

        - it takes 3 confirms for the trade to complete, you will see the status of the trade update in the UI, as the various portions are completed automatically on the back end.

        - you MUST LEAVE YOUR CORE RUNNING in order for the automation there to be able to complete the trade for you.

        - simply accept the order, click buy, and WAIT, the rest is TOTALLY AUTOMATED.

        - Begin to UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS WE HAVE HERE... A FULLY DECENTRALIZED TRADE PLATFORM THAT IS AS EASY TO USE AS A CENTRALIZED EXCHANGE.

        -NOW.. REJOICE FOR YOU HAVE BOUGHT A PART OF THE FUTURE, IN YOUR QORT PURCHASE!

        links on https://qortal.org/index.php/howtoanddownloads/ have been updated as well as the links on the OP. you can always check our Qortal Github Releases page (https://github.com/qortal/qortal/releases) as well.

        Why not show any love for loyal long-term supporters?

        The way this swap-process has been designed makes it look like the main purpose of this move was to increase your share while cutting of community members from the project. Too much corruption driven by greed involved.

        There was a period to swap Qora on the new blockchain. Unfortunately this period is over, so you have no possibility to bring your Qora to Qortal.
        Here is the old thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1358722.3540) with all necessary information. Qora still exists as a network, so you can still spend your Qora.

        If you were actually a long-term loyal supporter, maybe you would have checked in and maybe seen if you could do anything to help in the last... uh, I don't know... 2 YEARS?

        The burn period (WHICH IS NOT A SWAP but such a loyal supporter as yourself may already know this, no?) was EXTENDED MULTIPLE TIMES, and lasted a VERY long time, with MANY announcements taking place in multiple locations prior to the FINAL FINAL date, which was over a YEAR after the initial 'final date'.


        You are butt-hurt because you didn't pay any attention and now a new promising project arises from something you could have gained something from, and your greed overtook your mind during this post...


        BUT... WHAT YOU FAILED TO REALIZE IS...


         1. This is NOT a SWAP... it is a SLOW transition, in fact, the QORA transition will take over 10 years to fully distribute the QORT to QORA holders at 250 to 1 (QORA to QORT) ratio...

        2. If you WERE actually a REAL SUPPORTER OF QORA... maybe you FORGED BLOCKS? You know, as a SUPPORTER of the network MAY? IF YOU DID THIS... YOU ARE STILL ENTITLED, EVEN NOW, TO A PRE-LEVELED QORTAL MINTING ACCOUNT, which will EARN MUCH MORE than your probably small QORA holdings in the transition would have.

        3. Addressing this project with the term SCAMMY, is completely idiotic, and you make yourself look a total fool. Do you feel better after doing this? Or maybe you'd like to re-think and potentially become part of the project that will re-build the world.

        THE FACTS ARE - YOU DIDN'T PAY ANY ATTENTION TO A PROJECT YOU CLAIM TO BE A LONG-TERM SUPPORTER OF, THEN GOT INTO A HISSY FIT WHEN YOU REALIZED A NEW AND MOST LIKELY VERY SUCCESSFUL PROJECT CAME FROM WHAT YOU HAD... AND BEFORE YOU REALIZED THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO ADDRESS PEOPLE NICELY AND GET A MINTING ACCOUNT THAT WOULD MAKE MORE, YOU ATTACK THE PROJECT WHICH MAKES YOUR TRUE INTELLIGENCE LEVEL SHINE RIGHT THROUGH.

        Get on your way if you are the type of person who would rather come in and be a fool, than address people with a brain, and some kindness, and most likely get yourself MUCH FURTHER.

        The best place to get sponsorship to mint, is either in the internal Q-Chat communications in the Qortal UI, (which requires a fully sync'd Qortal node to utilize) or the Qortal Discord server (for now, until we fully move everything to Q-Chat once we have a few more features completed.)

        Market is getting some traction now when the minor issue has been resolved. It seems that people are more confident in using the Trade Portal.

        REMEMBER – This is a LOCAL WALLET, you are NOT DEPOSITING COIN anywhere. You are simply MOVING THE COIN TO ANOTHER WALLET YOU CONTROL inside Qortal.

        That's awesome. True decentralization.
        But how can I get my BTC private key if it's in local wallet ?
        Suppose I am in another city and don't want to trade on Trade Portal anymore and I need to transfer my BTC.
        The entire Qortal database is in another city, BTC inside this database.
        Can you provide instructions on how to access private key?
        After all, I will not take with me everywhere the entire Qortal database, which already takes 8-10 GB
        .

        You will simply log into your account on another installation of the core/ui and your same BTC xpriv will be generated and saved in the new db. You simply need to backup your Qortal Account, with the encrypted backup file, the BTC account will be the same for each Qortal account.

        It is insecure to give private key directly. The most secure way to get back into the same wallet, is to import your encrypted saved Qortal backup, and do it that way.

        I do not like the idea of dumping the xpriv unencrypted, it gives a method for the xpriv to potentially end up in the wrong hands. Doing it in the method described above will yield the same results in a much more secure fashion.

        **Also a NOTE** - You do NOT need to sync the entire Qortal Chain, in order to make transactions on the BTC wallet. So... you can simply INSTALL the Qortal UI and core, then send the BTC out while it is still synchronizing, if you don't want a full Qortal setup on the other machine.



        Something else to keep in mind - we WILL be offering a method in the future, to allow a Qortal install to NOT sync the entire chain, and only the 'top'. So you will in the future be able to utilize both Qortal, and BTC, without having to sync the entire chain.

        We have, however, decreased the db size by quite a bit in the new version, AND made it so the sync times are a LOT faster... However, in order to get full advantage of the first point, you WILL have to re-sync the chain from 0 with 1.3.5 installed... unfortunately the older versions of the db retain the larger size and there isn't anything to do other than sync again from 0 then re-import your minting key if you're a minter. Keep in mind, if you have orders placed, you will want to remove them and put them back after the re-sync. (which you can do even after deleting your db, with the new feature in the UI to remove 'stuck orders'.)

        Thank you very much for the detailed explanation.
        It is very good that it is not necessary to re-download  DB every time to a new PC if you need access to the BTC.
        What other coins do you plan to add to the Trade Portal in the near future?

        Absolutely, that's what I'm here for at the moment, is to clearly explain the plan and details of the project in ways that people can understand. My pleasure.

        At the moment, the plan is...

        • Build support manually for a library supporting LTC
        • Build support manually for local LTC support and internal LTC wallet


        Every coin Qortal supports, we must build EVERYTHING manually, as there honestly isn't anything out there good enough to be part of our codebase, and since EVERYTHING in Qortal is TRULY DECENTRALIZED, the only way for Qortal's Trade Portal to function, is to have NATIVE support for EVERY listed coin on the platform.

        This means that for Qortal to support a coin, our development team must build FROM SCRATCH both a library, AND a wallet, totally securely, to support the coin we're planning to list. So it's a little effort involved.

        However...

        once we list LTC, the next focus becomes THE VOTING SYSTEM. As this is the plan for the future of the platform overall. Everything is to be controlled by votes of the users, with influence based on their measured contributions to the network in the supported methods.

        So we list LTC, then we build the voting system, and the voting system is then used to put up PROPOSALS to list other coins in the future (as well as make any and all important decisions on the platform.)

        So we will do the LTC listing to have a faster, cheaper coin to trade with, then focus our attention on making everything we have perfect, and building the voting system, which then controls future listings, based on proposals and subsequent votes by leveled users of the system.

        Hopefully this helps you gain some clarity with my current ideas for the future.

        Hey guys. Love the ideas I've read in here so far. I just started with Qortal as it was recommended to me by a Devcoin (DVC) developer (Traxo on bitcointalk).

        The timeserver sync and check on Windows is amazing! And very intriguing. ;)

        Only problem I'm having is I've installed both the Windows EXE files from the latest github release, Qortal (the app 1.3.5) and the current UI. Running the UI and the app is no problem. It does use a lot of memory but I got memory to spare!

        I just am stuck synchronizing the app at 68% but it says on the UI that I am stuck at just short of 60,000 blocks.

        I have peers connected, are there ports I need to let through my firewall? Also my windows notifications said I received a message from a Qortal user when I ran the client first last night and I can't find it anywhere in the UI. :(

        The UI still has a few little bugs... such as the bug you're mentioning now...


        I would suggest...

        • kill the UI
        • Wait for the core to be 100% synchronized.
        • restart the UI

        See if the caching issue is resolved.

        (This is literally just an issue with the UI caching the incorrect block height, and not displaying correctly, as long as when you mouseover the blue Q icon on the taskbar, and it says 'synchronizing xx% - height - xx,xxx' you're good, just let it finish to 100%.)

        When it gets fully sync'd the icon on the taskbar, upon mouseover, will say 'not minting - height - xx,xxx', at which point you're sync'd. THEN start the UI, and you should be good.


        Once you're sync'd and account created, go into 'communications - Q-chat' and send a message in 'Qortal General Chat' and I will send you some QORT so that you can register your name on the chain, and potentially join whichever groups you may be interested in joining on the chain.

        You can also send me a PM on-chain by going to 'new chat' and sending to 'crowetic', and message me. :)

        Things are progressing nicely.

        I have updated the website - https://qortal.org - should be a bit simpler to understand, etc.

        Also, we're in progress on multiple fronts development wise...


        1. We are working out solutions to the large db, which is caused (a large portion anyway) by the 'AT states' for the Trade portal filling up the db.

        - we plan to both have a new way for the ATs to function wherein they don't need communication each block, and thus reducing the overall amount of data needed to be saved, and also improving the methods at which the db functions.

        2. We are working out the listing of LTC, however, the process is going to take a little longer than initially expected... as most things go that are done correctly.

        - We are not far off either way though, and LTC should be able to be added within a relatively short period.



        AT THE MOMENT

        What we need is for some people to USE THE TRADE PORTAL.

        version 1.2.4 UI and 1.3.5 core the trade portal is functional. There is never any risk of loss, so we simply need people to put some BTC in their local Qortal BTC wallet, and use the trade portal to pick up some of these EXTREMELY LOW PRICE orders. (which they will be very happy about in the future.) so we should focus on that, and a bit more marketing and information.

        Are you sure the sync is STUCK, or is it just moving slower? Try restarting your core and see if that helps, if not we have a lot of improvements upcoming.

        What is it for? I don't see any point in this at all.
        Another CENTRALIZED Exchange.
        Qortal was not created for this.
        We have a wonderful Trade Portal where:
        You are the server,
        You are the Exchange,
        You are an independent node.
        It is wonderful.
        You trade with other people, and all funds are stored on your own PC. You are not transferring money to some third party exchange.
        Complete decentralization.
        We just need more pairs to the Trading Portal and forget about these centralized controlled exchanges.

        What is it for? I don't see any point in this at all.
        Another CENTRALIZED Exchange.
        Qortal was not created for this.
        We have a wonderful Trade Portal where:
        You are the server,
        You are the Exchange,
        You are an independent node.
        It is wonderful.
        You trade with other people, and all funds are stored on your own PC. You are not transferring money to some third party exchange.
        Complete decentralization.
        We just need more pairs to the Trading Portal and forget about these centralized controlled exchanges.


        I think you are missing the point, Qort's goal is to be very decentralized to the point that even a centralized exchange can choose to list it if they wish.

        The developers didn't push for this. The listing was done by someone outside of the developer team and it is their freedom to do it.

        Qort developers are not putting any restrictions on exchange listing, they just don't encourage it or support centralized exchanges.

        They would rather have people use the DEX as it would be more secure than trading on an exchange that might get hacked, funds locked, shut down, etc.

        - ANN - New version 1.3.6 of the Qortal Core, addressing db size, BTC stability, and more.

        Version 1.3.6 of the core has been released, we will NOT do an auto-update until many nodes have been updated manually first...


        This version addresses DB size, includes the first 'trimming' method that removes old online account signatures, and keeps them trimmed to certain size, along with other trimming to keep db around 6GB and not increasing.

        This version fixes the trade portal and BTC functionality making it much more stable and functional.

        Now we can really start promoting harder.


        Next steps:

        1. List LTC for faster, cheaper trades.

        2. Get the voting system going

        3. Take votes for future listings

        4. Start designing app, even if the app is only a wallet and Q-Chat (or maybe two different apps)

        5. Add features to Q-Chat beyond what we've already added, with emojis, etc... add the ability to store messages longer on each individual machine, etc.

        Definitely install the new version - https://github.com/Qortal/qortal/releases/download/v1.3.7/Qortal-1.3.7.exe

        If you are coming from an older version chain db... you will have a 're-shape' that takes place upon initial start. This may take some time to complete.

        After that it will start and many issues are resolved. Including less CPU usage for your i3. ;)

        I think I'm going to cry. I saw the last link was for 1.3.6 and I've been syncing for two days and still am only at 84%... what do I do now?

        EDIT - Alright I deleted my old 1.3.6 AppData. And the wizard for 1.3.7 is running. I'll be back in December when I finally get this running.

        There is no 'competition' to mint... did you read the distribution? Every minter shares every block's reward, if they're online and sync'd with a minting key assigned. The level of the minter denotes their share of the reward...

        You don't 'compete'... you simply stay online and mint.

        I will sponsor you...

        In order to become a level 1 minter on Qortal you must FIRST obtain SPONSORSHIP from another minter of level 5 or higher, or a Qortal Founder.

        1. You will get the sponsorship key from me, and attach that in 'node management' - 'add minting account' - assign the sponsorship key.

        2. You will remain online and synchronized for 7200 online blocks ('blocksminted' in Qortal API call for account.) - once you have done this, you will BECOME level 1 (it will show at the top left of the Qortal UI)

        3. THEN you remove the sponsorship key from node management - click it, and input the sponsorship key again when prompted to remove - and CREATE your own MINTING KEY by issuing 'Reward Share' - 'New Reward Share' - 0% - to YOUR OWN PUBLIC KEY (which can be found by clicking the settings toggle at the top right of the Qortal UI where it will show account information)

        4. The key that pops up when you issue your reward share 0% to your own public key - is your MINTING KEY - now assign this key in node management add minting account just like you did with the initial sponsorship key.

        That's it... you will never again have to change this key, and can continue minting on Qortal.

        So do I understand this right. to be a minter you need to get sponsorship from someone who is level 5 in the discord or qchat?

        I am not particularly keen on chatrooms or chat servers.

        Is there another way to get sponsorship without joining discord or qchat.?

        I read your whole announcement.   I actually find this project very interesting.

        Yes, you are understanding correctly. If you want to be a Qortal Minter, you will need to interact with a Level 5 Minter and/or Founder via Discord or Q-Chat.

        Yes, initiative must be shown by anyone looking to become a minter on The Qortal Network. Then a continually connected node of any type after an initial bit of interaction with the community.

        The easiest way to interact with the community is in the UI, in Q-Chat.

        I myself am there a lot, waiting for people that I can then donate QORT to and sponsor. So it really isn't that difficult overall... but yea, you must communicate and show initiative in order to become a minter... that is the only investment required (that and a 5W or higher computer system.)

        We don't believe it is that much of an issue to obtain sponsorship, then once you become your own minter, you no longer need to communicate, you simply keep helping the network grow by running your node.

        Yes, we have been developing Qortal to provide a real, new infrastructure for the world to make use of in any number of ways.

        I don't believe that functionality is available in the projects current state, so there would be no setting for that. Not saying some iteration of TOR like functionality won't be available, just not a priority compared to other desired deliverables. The beauty of Qortal is it is built to support such features and any 3rd party can leverage Qortal to make it happen, if not today in the very near future.

        I know we had a Qortal node on the Tor network at one point... I will have to ask dmax about it and get the method of configuration, as I believe he might be the only one to have done it so far.

        I will post here once I know the answer.

        Qortal's biggest failure is that people with level 5 accounts with sponsorship ability almost don't have the ability to promote qortal. Or do not actively promote the growth of the qortal community.
        A person with a level 5 account mints 18 times more coins than a level 1 and 2 account.
        I think these reasons will make qortal very unhealthy.

        I was offered a sponsorship within a few days of participating in the community, so my experience has been different. If it was POW or POS, I'd either have to invest in mining equipment or money in my stake or both. In Qortal's Minting, my only investment is my time & engagement with the community.

        Not a bad trade off for no monetary investment, even if I earn 18x less. As each day progresses, the gap between minting rewards slowly narrows. In a sense, this is no different than anything else, the early adopters enjoy the most benefits. Ultimately, time will tell.

             This is an excellent opportunity to get ahead in this blockchain project without a lot of invested time or having been an early adopter.  Someone will have a good Christmas.

        Pro Tip:  This coin was trading at 1USD with no real loss until a scam exchange clone appeared and fleeced the residents  in ignorance.  Though the exchange clone has exit scammed and disappeared, the value that it fabricated to drive the price down stuck.  If you like money, this one is a steal if you can find a real seller at this price.  I can't.

        They also have a Discord bot that facilitates trading as well as the trade portal in their UI.  There is literally no need for any exchanges whatsoever with this cryptocurrency.

        Qortal's biggest failure is that people with level 5 accounts with sponsorship ability almost don't have the ability to promote qortal. Or do not actively promote the growth of the qortal community.
        A person with a level 5 account mints 18 times more coins than a level 1 and 2 account.
        I think these reasons will make qortal very unhealthy.
        I was offered a sponsorship within a few days of participating in the community, so my experience has been different. If it was POW or POS, I'd either have to invest in mining equipment or money in my stake or both. In Qortal's Minting, my only investment is my time & engagement with the community.

        Not a bad trade off for no monetary investment, even if I earn 18x less. As each day progresses, the gap between minting rewards slowly narrows. In a sense, this is no different than anything else, the early adopters enjoy the most benefits. Ultimately, time will tell.
        I'm not saying that qortal is bad. I just think people with level 5 accounts don't take the initiative to promote qortal. While other people who have the ability to promote do not have a level 5 account, so it is very difficult for qortal to grow.
        This is a matter that needs to be solved urgently.

        I can understand how you could feel that way, however, it is not a level 5's responsibility to promote Qortal. Although, that would be nice and some do. Their intended role in the beginning is to act as Gatekeepers who engage/sponsor newcomers that have shown a willingness to support the network, promote Qortal or help in any other capacity. But as we know, in any job or social setting, especially in crypto, 10% of the community will do 90% of the work.

        You dont need to run it 24/7. On every start it will take some time for syn the chain, while you were offline ( few minutes). After that, you can use it as normal. You shall be online all time if you are buying or selling, untill trade is closed.

        There will be many modifications to the system, including new rewards methods, leveling methods, etc.

        The system was built to reward those who built it, and contributed to it prior to it being built by supporting the QORA network, a little bit more at the BEGINNING.

        The system will level out, as everyone increases in level.

        New methods being implemented will increase the variety of earning potential, as well as the input that ultimately leads to gain in influence and reward on the network.


        EVERYTHING WILL BALANCE OUT, but it made sense to reward the creators and people who assisted getting the platform launched a bit more in the beginning.

        [/quote]

        You know what?  That is a perfectly logical response.

        Unfortunately, I find it unlikely that they will change their tone on the topic.
        the reason for this is that each and every Level 5 has that position because they sustained the QORA project singlehandedly, until it was transmogrified into what we see here.

        They are responsible for your having a Qortal to criticize.

        Also, they and the founders sign the majority of blocks so that you can have a system where you need input no computing effort.

        If the ratio of newer users that are going to be usurping the level five share by putting in the time to gain level five is undesirable, then clearly they need more new users.

        Logically, this leads to your original statement and I can only assume you find yourself in a better position to advertise.

        Unfortunately, you are looking at the wrong people.

        Advertisement is the luxury of any user but it is the responsibility of the founders.

        with the capacity your posture hails from, I also assume you joined the raffle as You will clearly win the grand prize.
        At that time, I'm fairly certain the founders would reach out to you.


        Else, all the level ones and twos can do is put in the time and level up to further dilute their pool.

        Bear in mind that at some time in the future, even the founders will only draw 5 percent.

        So I put BTC in my wallet. Noticed a bug in the UI Trade Portal when I couldn't edit my offer with the cursor and text so I overpaid for a total of 6 Qortal like 8 offers higher than the current to test if I could buy with my BTC from within the Trade Portal. It's stuck on "TRADING" status and has yet to give me my 6 overpriced QORT :)

        I've had this happen before. Typically means the Qort seller was not online, which presently locks your buy in trading. BTC will be refunded in about 7-10 days if it runs it own course and ultimately fails to trade. Word to the wise, do not delete your db until you have btc returned, in fact, you might want to backup the db.

        I might be mistaken, but I believe you can shorten this time by cancelling via the API. Should have API and API Documentation enabled in settings.json

        I would suggest going into the support channel in discord to get exact directions how to cancel via API.

        If I'm not mistaken, the exact scenario you describe may addressed in the next release.

        hehe, ya its not like a CEX where you can generally just click any order and it will fill LOWEST price for you
        each order is a specific trade and as such is selected specifically ;)

        You can buy or Mint them...
        For minting, you just need to run the node & you can start earning QORT with literally Zero balance (No Investment required).
        You can also buy QORT from Trade Portal built within the Wallet.

        Also for minting you need sponsorship. Join Qortal's Discord Channel for that purpose.

        There will be many more promotions in the future, this is just one of many. This is a raffle with the opportunity to win a minting account. Names will be randomly chosen during the live event using https://wheelofnames.com/ (https://wheelofnames.com/)

        Who knows, maybe there will be other prizes as well, just really depends on the type of community participation. In fact, participation is rewarded all the time in the community, so you don't have to wait for a raffle. Show your interest to help and I'm sure you'll find the community is generous.

        A person with a level 5 account mints 18 times more coins than a level 1 and 2 account.

        If the wiki data and the modewei do not show error, yes.

        However, the real calculation is this.
        7200*0.15/59=18.30508474576271

        Both are irrelevant.

        I only searched the last pages of the thread, so the question could already have been answered: Is it planned to bring Qortal to a larger central exchange? And if so, is there a roadmap for this?

        Hi! As I am aware, response is: no. Qortal will not be listed on any exchange, because our platform offers cross chain trade. Currently there is BTC-QORT pair. Very soon there will be LTC-QORT.
        The Trade Portal is a completely decentralized peer-to-peer (p2p) trade platform, built inside the Qortal User Interface.

        Here is additional info, from one of Crowetics podcasts: https://youtu.be/i4-bbp_gRS4

        To expand on marracc's response, the answer is the Qortal Team will not seek being listed on an exchange as the goal is to have a decentralized trading portal baked into the platform itself, which it already does. BTC-Qort is already live, LTC-Qort on the way as it is being tested.

        With the above said, if an exchange were interested in listing Qortal, that is completely up to them and from what I understand easy to do as there is a robust api in Qortal. If you are aware of Qortal's - Qora history, you can appreciate the aversion to centralized exchanges and why Qortal is moving the direction it is.

        What about the volume? Low volume highlights how measly the Quort portal is in the eyes of a potential investor. And it underscores the issue most if not all decentralized platforms face, namely lack of clientele. Quort is a toilet seat on a bowl for shitting users utilize when no other means to appease their constipation would work. The last couple years made it evident that all things decentralized are dead as a concept. Forget about it.

        Yep - QORTAL is in fact extremely mature and time tested technology- no need to create hype and pumps by listing on as many exchages as possible, or even get fleeced by exchanges that demand huge payments for listing new coins.

        What do you mean with volume? What volume are you interested in? Supply or what? This is not another fast turn around (steal) money project... It has been in development for few years.... But, seems like you are used to be involved in huge volume shitty projects, pump and dump stuff...

        as ssxb said, they will get qortal over time so lets say if he someone was having 10000 Qora and he burned for getting qortal

        10000 / 250 = 40 Qortal

        These 40 will deposit over time in his qortal wallet as if all coin will go one time in his wallet , he maybe try to dump them and will make problem for qortal echo system, perhaps he will get that 40 in years as far as i know , but i will dig more for formula or crowtic can explian here when he will be online here,

        Hello All,

        I like the fact that we can trade through the portal but the volume is so low and the markets are too little.  Perhaps the team, I know you won't, may consider an exchange to list Qurtal to help with volumes and bring awareness to the coin.  I think this would be advantageous

        The trade volume may change once LTC is live on the Trade Portal. BTC transaction fees are too high right now, so trading is at a minimum. Also, any Exchange is free to list Qortal, but the Qortal community will not initiate this. This has been in development for years, so collectively, there is no rush.

Also, any Exchange is free to list Qortal, but the Qortal community will not initiate this. This has been in development for years, so collectively, there is no rush.


        The volume will DEFINITELY change once LTC and PRESENCE are implemented.


        The main 'issue' right now, is that the orders in the portal could potentially have an offline core behind it... which means the automation for the creation and execution of the actual trade, isn't there... This cause the order to have to REFUND, which in the case of BTC, takes a very long time.

        Hence, there isn't much use of the portal at the moment.


        LTC fixes the speed issue, trades will happen within 5-7 minutes, and refunds in 1 hour... Then to take it a step further, PRESENCE, will only show ONLINE ORDERS, which means that only orders that CAN COMPLETE will show up on the Trade Portal sells list.


        This will mean a liquid, fast, cheap cross-chain market.



        Also, with the support for LTC, comes support for ANY BTC CLONE in the Qortal API. This means we can easily support other BTC clones in the Trade Portal.



        I firmly believe these things above will bring not only a liquid, fast, usable cross-chain market, but also bring support from other BTC clones looking to be supported on a trade platform with NO RISK OF LOSS.


        Now, tell me, why would I give up control of my coins just to trade, when I can do that without giving up control? Who will be opposed to that?

        It sounds great - being able to trade directly from the wallet p2p, no middleman - like a dream come true.

        I have a question though. I guess overtime there will be more and more trading pairs and implicitly wallets added to Qortal. Won't this create a space/storage issue? I mean hosting so many wallets requires many resources. I might be wrong here as I haven't researched how wallets work on Qortal so please bear with me.

First u dont need to undertake any research activities, Qort chain is smart enough to research u, a human, instead. Its fine that Qort is just a wreath of stink from old mans feet, we dont dare to ask for more while Qort is in this nascent stage. Secondly, that atomic swaps are not yet enabled in Qort engine fizzled out a great many investors, thus do expect dumps.

        -Announcement- LTC and PRESENCE on Qortal testnet - will be opening to community testing today!

        As above notes, we are testing LTC and PRESENCE on the testnet now, and I will be opening it up to community testing as soon as few finishing touches are done on the UI.

        I will provide a fully pre-configured testnet node, with a sync'd chain (or close) as well as a pre-compiled pre-release version of the UI, that users will be able to run with yarn and node.js installed on their system.


        Also, version 1.3.8 is a hotfix version for the stuck block 212936 issue, if you're already past that block, you don't need to worry about updating to 1.3.8, but if you're not, and you are stuck on 212936, the update will fix the issue, and/or the bootstrap I provided in Discord a while back.


        Version 1.4.0 will be the release that contains LTC and PRESENCE, after testing on the testnet, we will push it out.

Where else can you trade in a true decentralized manner without having to depend on any third-party server or custody (in the case of centralized exchanges)?

        as far as the answer to your question... as it sits right now, with LTC and BTC support anyway, we make use of the Electrum network.

        This means we do NOT need full nodes for LTC or BTC in order to have a local wallet, and issue transactions to the network.


        Now, in the future when handling a coin that does NOT have electrum support, this may change. However, as of now there is no concern over size... as we do not need a full node for any of the networks that run with Electrum.



        Also, to address that very strange reply...


        for one... you are incorrect... we DO have working cross-chain trades with BTC... however, if a seller shuts his node down the trade cannot complete, and thus the trade is listed, accepted, then refunded due to the selling party being offline...

        This is the exact reason for the development of PRESENCE. PRESENCE will show the response every 30 minutes, of the seller nodes. therefore, we are able to tell if a node hasn't replied during the last round of PRESENCE transactions, and is likely offline. Then, we put a red dot by the sells that are likely offline, so that users no longer accept sells from offline sellers.

        This should dramatically improve the scenario wherein a refund is necessary.

        Also, with the change to LTC, we get a MUCH FASTER, MUCH CHEAPER network (LTC network over BTC) to deal with, and therefore we will have trades that are CHEAPER THAN CENTRALIZED EXCHANGES.

        We firmly believe the improvements will be VERY NOTICEABLE, and LTC market will really kick things off...

        If this then says people will dump... I think that's the silliest response to a dramatic improvement and new version I have seen in quite a while, but to each their own I guess.

        -[Announcement]- Qortal Core and UI updates


        Qortal Core version 1.3.9

        Core update with a few little bugfixes and preparation for LTC in version 1.4.0.

        auto-update pushed today, if you are sync'd and you don't have auto-updates disabled, you will update automatically on all platforms.


        you can see a blog post I made here about the updates

        Linux and Mac users will have to update to 1.3.2 UI manually. Windows should auto-update both core and UI. Everyone should auto-update core unless they have auto-updates disabled.


        https://qortal.org/index.php/2020/12/30/qortal-updates-core-version-1-3-9-and-ui-version-1-3-2/


        See post for specifics.

        The next updates after these, will include the LTC Trade Portal, 3 local wallets (BTC, LTC, and QORT), PRESENCE transactions for Trade Portal sells, and much more.



        Very excited about all that has been accomplished recently, applause to the Qortal dev team, looks like 2021 may be the year of Qortal.

        What is the price of this coin at the moment? 2 satoshi or 3?

        Also, with the change to LTC, we get a MUCH FASTER, MUCH CHEAPER network (LTC network over BTC) to deal with, and therefore we will have trades that are CHEAPER THAN CENTRALIZED EXCHANGES.

        That's a great incentive for people who trade on shady unregulated, centralized exchanges and not only..

        Looking forward to some tokenomics for QORT, though. Don't get me wrong, the QORT blockchain and network is already offering innovative tech solutions that no one else has. Could be a game-changer, but I'd like to see some ways to leverage QORT holdings and boost its value? Bitcoin is a scarce asset by design which is the main value-driver besides being used as a payment method. Maybe the data-hosting and liquidity provider features will have an important role in the ecosystem?

        Great work and excited to be here!  ;)

        Thank you, but I can hardly take the credit, the awesome Qortal Community, and Team have been GREAT.

        I look forward to this year with great anticipation.

        Hah...


        The prices initially before the scam exchange came in, were 1-3 dollars per coin. Since the BTC Trade Portal didn't work out as expected due to being slow and too many refunds from offline sellers...


        The REAL PRICE will come when LTC is added to the mainnet.

        But I don't ever expect to see 2 satoshi... lol... not with 1.1 million coins in circulation.

        Yes, many new services, and plugins for the UI, will be coming to allow more use cases for QORT itself.

        First we're looking to have a liquid cross-chain market with LTC, establish a price, and go from there.

        Many other services both from the core team and others will begin to show themselves in the near future. I'm sure of that.

        Is there a faster way to get up to date?

        If you have downloaded the latest version of the core then you could bootstrap faster by
        downloading the latest bootstrap database
        https://github.com/Qortal/qortal/releases/download/v1.3.9/db-v1.3.9-233404.zip

        from the latest releases:
        https://github.com/qortal/qortal/releases

        The procedure is following:
        1) stop your node
        2) rename or delete the existing db folder in your qortal folder
        3) create empty db folder in your qortal folder
        4) unpack the database into this folder
        5) restart your core node

        If you are on windows you can find the localtion of the qortal folder
        by typing into the run terminal the following envarinmet variable %localappdata%

        Start -> Run -> (then type %localappdata%) and it will open the qortal folder

        If you are on linux then you know already how it works ;)

        If you need more help or info let me know.
        I hope it will work for you!

        No faucet as Minters are vetted by humans. I suggest joining the discord and engaging the community. You can also reach out using Q-chat in UI and lastly go to https://join.qortal.org

        There is no need to list on centralized exchange which gets hacked constantly and leak your personal info.
        This platform will be an exchange and much more in the future.

        Livecoin is done. Gone now. And others will follow. I dunno if recent hacks were the responsibility of average guys, or it was the coordinated effort by political elite. May they be responsible for the derailment of crypto focused businesses on various fronts? And can QORT bridge their chain with bitshares?

        Post by: crowetic on January 07, 2021, 05:48:30 PM
        [ANNouncement] - HUGE update to Qortal now live, version 1.4.0 with LTC trading, 3 local wallets and PRESENCE!

        That's right! We now have a DIRECT cross-chain market with LTC!

        We also have MANY enhancements and features in the new version 1.4.0 for both Core and UI:

        • LTC cross-chain trading in the LTC Trade Portal
        • PRESENCE tx - new tx type that sellers use to prove their node online, so that only online sells are listed on the Trade Portal
        • MANY other improvements in the core, to many to list here - see https://github.com/qortal/qortal/releases
        • 3 local wallets - BTC, LTC, and QORT
        • new wallet layout
        • MANY performance enhancing changes in the UI

        MANY more things coming! Make people aware that they can now get into QORT with NO third party, and a direct-cross chain trade. YOU ARE NEVER STUCK IN QORT NO MATTER WHAT!

        Hopefully everyone is as excited as I am about THIS UPDATE!


        auto-update for the core has taken place early morning my time, about 9 hours ago.

        UI will auto-update for windows users, mac and linux users will download their version from https://github.com/qortal/qortal-ui/releases - obtain the installer with correct extension for your OS... .dmg - mac, .deb - ubuntu/debian.

        Here's to the future of Qortal!

        We can potentially build support for any coin/platform in Qortal.

        The plan... as it sits now that LTC is live... is to start working on the voting system so that the next supported coins/platforms can be voted on by leveled minters in the network.


        For now, we are happy to have our direct cross-chain trading possible with LTC, bringing us a liquid market that can never be shut down. As long as the LTC chain and QORT chain are running, users can directly trade with one another across blockchains with LTC/QORT pair in the Trade Portal.

        There is much more that can be done with the existing platform, and we will add more and improve existing plugins/functionality, as we continue into the future.

        The founder says qortal is a decentralized trading platform.
        But I would like to say this: qortal does not give the private keys of btc and ltc of trade portals to users to keep freely.
        How can users withdraw their btc or ltc assets if a major accident occurs on qortal one day and the project cannot proceed?
        So I think it is really decentralized only if you give control of the private key of btc or ltc to the user.
        In this way, when there is a major accident in qortal, they can import the private key of btc or ltc into another wallet to retrieve their assets

        Please do some research or ask the Qortal community regarding items like this before you post half truths. The fact that is, if Qortal had an issue, you would still be able to access your BTC and LTC.

        Presently, you are 1/2 correct, there is no built in functionality to export your BTC or LTC keys. However, please see Crowetic's statements.

        "the keys are derived in a way that's tied to your Qortal account
        so you can backup your Qortal wallet, and you can import into any other, and your BTC and LTC wallets will be there
        so no, I don't consider export of the private keys to be a NECESSARY feature right now."

        First of all, I'd like to make it clear that you can't take out btc or LTC, without qortal, because you don't have control over the private key of these two coins in your qortal wallet, which means you may lose these two coin assets.
        Another qortal automatically updates the version for the user without the user.
        If one day a developer upgrade hides the BTC and LTC assets in his wallet, how can the average user get their btc,ltc assets back?
        More importantly: several people seem to have found that their BTC assets in the qortal trade portal have been lost.
        If users have their BTC private key, they can retrieve the lost btc by importing the btc private key into other btc wallets.

        In the past, many wallet projects used mnemonics as proof of all the coins in the wallet.
        But after a series of problems, they now implement separate private keys for each coin project. Completely devolve control of the coin to the user.

             You don't have to respond to yourself, Modewei.
          I have been waiting for you.
        Regarding the private keys, I cannot decide which is more profound: that you are just hearing about this or that your effort is bested only by your inaccuracy.



          All 47 of you actions on this forum state a clear pattern with little necessary calculation of, "This coin looks promising.  Time to FUD!" with a smattering of "I am here! Where is my airdrop?"
        It is clear by your precise selection of woes that you are attempting to attack the fundamental parts of the platform in hopes that it catches air like a true channer.  Unfortunately, you are attacking the payment method: not the platform Qortal.  You are chasing a car and attacking street signs.

          In our last episode, you chose the quantity of users on the network to call as "Bad Pool" but you were factually inaccurate.  Errare humanum est, perseverare autem diabolicum.

                  But on TONIGHT'S show, the big bomb is nonexistent private keys.  However, this one is just as explodey as the arithmetic acrobatics episode was.

                         ...because it is old news and you are telling an outright lie stating that no private key exists.  There is no more concise way to put it.
        Believe me, I have tried.




        Since the song has taken this note, I'd like to direct everyone to please parse this user's activity.  Get to know them as I have.  You can find it right above his merit.






             Modewei allow me to adjust your accuracy to...  ...accurate.

          The "fault" you have heralded and then provided rapport to yourself, in order to spare other users the stress of communication with you is well known.  It is the product of the UI and its mechanism that make private key acquisition arduous but not impossible.  Drew M. Peacock happened upon it and derived his keys after a couple days.  He offered assistance to the entire community regarding acquisition of these keys during a time when the trade portal had turbulence with BTC/Electrum and stability was our focus, as well it should have been.

          It is this that you reference offhandedly as,
         "several people seem to have found that their BTC assets in the qortal trade portal have been lost..".

          Were it not for his efforts, we'd be paying a lot of beta testers out of pocket.  It was only possible because we assisted the users in procuring their OWN key.  This allowed them to locate their currency.

          Private keys are the way things work.  Don't assume things are just on a spreadsheet at the post office and use special handshakes to access because you lack decryption capacity(much less, know it is a possibility).
        This is something you would know, were you here at the time as it was a pretty big deal.  By "here", I imply something within the community less clandestine.




          I have been privy to the retrieval process and it is expressly technical.  In this light, it kind of makes sense to not even mention it unless there is an update or it has been rectified.

        The founder says qortal is a decentralized trading platform.
        But I would like to say this: qortal does not give the private keys of btc and ltc of trade portals to users to keep freely.
        How can users withdraw their btc or ltc assets if a major accident occurs on qortal one day and the project cannot proceed?
        So I think it is really decentralized only if you give control of the private key of btc or ltc to the user.
        In this way, when there is a major accident in qortal, they can import the private key of btc or ltc into another wallet to retrieve their assets
        Please do some research or ask the Qortal community regarding items like this before you post half truths. The fact that is, if Qortal had an issue, you would still be able to access your BTC and LTC.

        Presently, you are 1/2 correct, there is no built in functionality to export your BTC or LTC keys. However, please see Crowetic's statements.

        "the keys are derived in a way that's tied to your Qortal account
        so you can backup your Qortal wallet, and you can import into any other, and your BTC and LTC wallets will be there
        so no, I don't consider export of the private keys to be a NECESSARY feature right now."

        First of all, I'd like to make it clear that you can't take out btc or LTC, without qortal, because you don't have control over the private key of these two coins in your qortal wallet, which means you may lose these two coin assets.
        Another qortal automatically updates the version for the user without the user.
        If one day a developer upgrade hides the BTC and LTC assets in his wallet, how can the average user get their btc,ltc assets back?
        More importantly: several people seem to have found that their BTC assets in the qortal trade portal have been lost.
        If users have their BTC private key, they can retrieve the lost btc by importing the btc private key into other btc wallets.

        In the past, many wallet projects used mnemonics as proof of all the coins in the wallet.
        But after a series of problems, they now implement separate private keys for each coin project. Completely devolve control of the coin to the user.











             You don't have to respond to yourself, Modewei.
          I have been waiting for you.
        Regarding the private keys, I cannot decide which is more profound: that you are just hearing about this or that your effort is bested only by your inaccuracy.



          All 47 of you actions on this forum state a clear pattern with little necessary calculation of, "This coin looks promising.  Time to FUD!" with a smattering of "I am here! Where is my airdrop?"
        It is clear by your precise selection of woes that you are attempting to attack the fundamental parts of the platform in hopes that it catches air like a true channer.  Unfortunately, you are attacking the payment method: not the platform Qortal.  You are chasing a car and attacking street signs.

          In our last episode, you chose the quantity of users on the network to call as "Bad Pool" but you were factually inaccurate.  Errare humanum est, perseverare autem diabolicum.

                  But on TONIGHT'S show, the big bomb is nonexistent private keys.  However, this one is just as explodey as the arithmetic acrobatics episode was.

                         ...because it is old news and you are telling an outright lie stating that no private key exists.  There is no more concise way to put it.
        Believe me, I have tried.




        Since the song has taken this note, I'd like to direct everyone to please parse this user's activity.  Get to know them as I have.  You can find it right above his merit.






             Modewei allow me to adjust your accuracy to...  ...accurate.

          The "fault" you have heralded and then provided rapport to yourself, in order to spare other users the stress of communication with you is well known.  It is the product of the UI and its mechanism that make private key acquisition arduous but not impossible.  Drew M. Peacock happened upon it and derived his keys after a couple days.  He offered assistance to the entire community regarding acquisition of these keys during a time when the trade portal had turbulence with BTC/Electrum and stability was our focus, as well it should have been.

          It is this that you reference offhandedly as,
         "several people seem to have found that their BTC assets in the qortal trade portal have been lost..".

          Were it not for his efforts, we'd be paying a lot of beta testers out of pocket.  It was only possible because we assisted the users in procuring their OWN key.  This allowed them to locate their currency.

          Private keys are the way things work.  Don't assume things are just on a spreadsheet at the post office and use special handshakes to access because you lack decryption capacity(much less, know it is a possibility).
        This is something you would know, were you here at the time as it was a pretty big deal.  By "here", I imply something within the community less clandestine.




          I have been privy to the retrieval process and it is expressly technical.  In this light, it kind of makes sense to not even mention it unless there is an update or it has been rectified.

        Now, I can smell you getting all FUDDy at that remark but let's take a moment to analyze this through the lens of logic.

          We do not attempt to affect pricing, never involve ourselves with client promotions, prizes or ulterior payouts, except in advertisement.  We have a ZERO MANIPULATION policy and we are usually the last to hold bags for morale's sake.


             Founded by four cryptocurrency veterans, Crypto Play Radio believes that the business makes the asset and not the other way around.  We prefer brick and mortar business/cryptocurrency fusions and respect the willingness to place your name and business behind your shill.  We want the success of our industry and not its denigration and we want it yesterday.  We are developers,gamers, miners, and a whole host of technically spread techonophiles.
        We provide a place to talk where you friends and family are tired of hearing about cryptocurrency.

          We become team members.


          When we began, we created the "Blocksucker  List" to shape our judgement of other people's ideas, businesses and dreams where cryptocurrency is concerned.

          Our reputation is strong with the projects we have worked with, sans those that were vapor or were of professionalism concern.
        We are where we are because of our relationships within the cryptocurrency community.  As such, their scrutiny is of utmost importance.




             Elucidated, let's look at the "Way Back Machine" and begin again.  Let's itemize each statement you submitted in auspice of defense.


        "I think it is most important to make users feel safe."
          "Fear is the most basic human emotion we have.  Fear is primal.  Fear sells." -Max Brook

        "I don't attack anyone."
          No, you are not nearly as aggressive as I have been toward you.  Please accept my sincere personal apology regarding my candor.  It has been unbecoming of adult business practice and lacking respect.
        Your topics are divisive and whether this is the culmination of your life experiences that created a lens of which you are ignorant or if this is the result of ineffective manipulation tools is largely irrelevant.
        I also don't care what comprises a bird watcher's motives.

          Crypto Play Radio defends its clients as if we were wearing the owner's name tag.  This applies doubly so to Qortal.  We do so because we believe in the standard we have set and govern ourselves by them, strictly.

        "I'm just saying what I know."
          I concur.

        "You mentioned my past reply post."
          I went far our of my way to phone in that all users should scrutinize your method of safety regulation and notification.  Call it what it is: I was obnoxious.


        "So, I would also like to express my personal opinion on the posts you replied to in the past: do the shit coins you have been recommending to users or added to the mining pool still exist?"
          This is an great example of your altered view of the environment.  Crypto Play Radio is a service provider.  Payment due for services rendered.
        How would Bittrex respond to this statement?

        And yes, most of those "shit coins" are still in existence in some form or another.  Your myopia is showing.

        "Everyone has a process of growing up."
          Of course they have.  Life is short, surreal and amazing you odd little flesh thing hurtling through the cosmos at speeds no one can truly visualize.  Growth continues throughout for all, albeit to varying degrees.  However when you post in this business forum, it is implied that you are grown and that your specific process of growth is under your control.  Check that excuse at the door.  We do and WHEN we do, we also put our past there.

        "Don't judge others about the past."
          This statement truly was presented to the wrong person but that explanation is wordy and moot.
        I judge by where they are going if I judge anyone, whatsoever.  Presuming to speculate what kind of human you are by your communication patterns is a dubious notion at best and an insult at all points.
        Business constituents however, have no other criteria by which to evaluate your words than rigorous research of the product and/or what you have historically brought to the table.
        And we both know that the average user's lack of willingness to do either is palpable.

        It could even be conceived as exploitable.

           In contrast, Crypto Play Radio has built communities in this industry for nearly four years as a team and a family.  We have taken in the masses from dying coins and witnessed firsthand the birth of technologies and careers that will change history.





        Modewei...

          Whether or not you accept this statement, I regard you as part of an "Elliott Wave".  You and I have met many times.  If saying this provokes any response sans dismissal, this is a topic of internal locus of control.  But that does not mean I personally don't want to know you, talk to you and remove you from the faceless statistical masses.


          You can find me in the Qortal voice Discord channel "Qortalk", based on my availability.  The text counterpart channel is "Qortalk Text".

        Hello,

        i have some qora coins.

        Exist somewhere an wallet for qora? Running nodes of qora? Exist an Exchange where i can trade qora?
        Or is qora dead?

        Thanks


        QORA is still running, I personally run a few QORA nodes to keep the network moving. I still personally like QORA...

        There is no 'exchange' for QORA at the moment. However, seeing as it supports the CIYAM SmartContracts, there is no reason a trade between QORA and QORT couldn't be established in the future. (However, at this point there is no plan for such a trade system to be completed. The back end of both coins are capable of it.)

        The original concepts of Qortal's taking over QORA, was to 'slowly transition QORA to Qortal' - this was done in a method that required NO PRE-MINE and NO AIR-DROP... done with 20% of every block's reward in Qortal, over a long period of time, until everyone who BURNED QORA BEFORE GENESIS, acquired 250/1 QORA/QORT. (250x less QORT than QORA held) But again, they had to have BURNED their QORA (sending to QORA Genesis account, prior to Qortal launch)


        However, since it would seem you did NOT burn QORA prior to Genesis... there are two potential options for you...


        1. If you had forged QORA during the time it was considered 'dead', you can import your QORA forging address seed, into Qortal... at which point you will be automatically rewarded with a pre-leveled account on Qortal. Depending on how many forged blocks you had.

        2. If you did not forge QORA blocks, and didn't burn... your only other option is to become sponsored on Qortal, and become a minter... OR take advantage of the VERY LOW PRICES on the LTC/QORT Trade Portal, which is fully live now in Qortal.

        In order to trade you will simply install the Core and the UI, get it synchronized (we have a bootstrap if you don't want to sync from 0) - go to 'wallet' - then LTC - copy your LTC wallet address, and fund that wallet.

        Then go into the Trade Portal, find a sell listed on the chain, click it, and click buy. At which point a cross-chain trade between LTC and QORT will take place in 7 min and both coins will be confirmed on their respective chains.

        If you would like to be a Qortal minter, you should join our discord (link at the top of https://qortal.org) and I will be happy to sponsor you.

        [ANNouncement] - Qortal Core 1.4.1 auto-update approved.

        We have pushed the auto-update transaction to the chain, everyone with their auto-updates enabled should be updating after they hit the update block and subsequent waiting period.


        -This update will be a 'hard fork' for the AT processing code (to address a very rare scenario that came up regarding trades)

        -Everyone will need to update PRIOR TO BLOCK 275000 if they have their auto-updates disabled.

        Block 275000 will implement the new AT processing changes (version 1.4.1 will support both the old method and the new, but past that block, only the new will be accepted.)

        Also, just so that everyone is aware...

        We WILL have the ability to 'export xpriv' from the Qortal UI, in a future release...


        You can already do it with accessing the UI via a browser, and issuing certain commands... so the argument about not being able to do this, is already flawed.


        But... honestly... I still think that saving only your encrypted .json backup file, that then allows you access to your QORT/BTC/LTC wallet inside of Qortal, is the MORE SECURE way to do things.


        That way you NEVER have any unencrypted methods to access your account. Be it LTC/BTC, or QORT.



        But yea, I wanted to let people know that we WILL have the ability to export the xpriv for BTC/LTC in a future release of the UI...


        If anyone would like to be able to do that NOW, let me know, and I will explain the process to you.


        Qortal is going to be getting a LOT more attention, very soon. So now is the time to get in 'early' while you can still get the ridiculously low prices available now.

        I tested out the latest UI and Core and the trade with LTC was successful and very fast! Fee was in Litecoin as if I just sent coin to another wallet with no trading fee to pay.

        The fact that I can buy any order I want is the greatest thing crypto needs right now, manipulation by exchanges and hacks have taken their toll on the average users.

        I found out that the only reason why people can't list a BUY on the Qortal Trade Portal is due to LTC not having the capability on their chain, which shows Qortal is superior to all other crypto!

        Looking forward to seeing more trade pairs soon!

        Hi All, I have made a quick video showing how to fix a node that is on the wrong chain. If you notice you are blocks behind exqlorer or you cant post in Q-Chat you are probably on the wrong chain. Please make sure you have your core set to auto enable and consensus will fix this issue for you.

        I watched the webinar from February 5th and I installed Core and UI on my Windows 8pm last night. However, it is STILL synchronizing and it is at 21% and I kept my laptop on ALL night. Why is it taking so long to synch? I am unable to post in Q-chat and last night I signed up for Discord https://discord.com/channels/@me/807806308375855116 but no one has responded to my posts yet.

        Could someone tell me WHY it's taking so long to synchronize? At this rate, I may have to leave my laptop on 24/7 for the next month.

        I looked at Task Manager is Qortal is using up over 70% of CPU and Memory and I'm not even minting. See screenshot at https://prnt.sc/yof5ug

        In Discord, I stated on Qortal's channel DM at MEE6 that I wanted to be a minter and I need someone to sponsor me. Please respond to my Discord username "decentralized" (without the quotes).

        Thanks

        Hi All,

        I have created a fresh bootstrap using my Ryzen 3600 32gb machine, we have done some testing on Discord and it seems to be stable for now, I will keep updating a fresh db as and when i can, just so we have some community nodes happening. We need community nodes as much as we need minting nodes. Good luck, just hit me up on discord if you need any help. everyone is helpful there.

        Hi All,

        Hi,

        I downloaded the bootstrap you provided and updated the db. I also watched the video on fixing the chain. Now I am synchronized from 92% to 98% but each percentage is taking 2 days to complete.

        FYI: It has now taken me a whole week to get to this point. What else can I do? If someone wants to help me upgrade my laptop please get in touch with me since I have no funds.

        I visited the Discord channel at https://discord.com/channels/348175815822802946/363713980667133962 but there is no #link option for me to click on and get the latest bootstrap. See https://prnt.sc/zff77x

        Thanks in advance

        Hi All, Its taken me a long time but finally have set up my/our website https://www.qortaldb.com/ (https://www.qortaldb.com/) I will only host db files here from now on. Anyone who wants to sync faster or view tutorials for Qortal in one place can do so on the site. I will be deleting all the other db links and will update site weekly.

        Please check out the website and let me know what you think! Also big thanks to @Haabda#0470 on discord who has built and deployed a dedicated physical server to host the db file though qortal-tmgoxford domain so we have a couple mirrors. Please check the files MD5 after download to verify file and use 7zip to unzip the file. Thank you and donations are  appreciated!!

        [ANN] - version 1.4.3 released - hardfork block - 320,000 - for MASSIVELY IMPROVED CONSENSUS CHANGES!

        We have issued yet another update, version 1.4.3 of Qortal core. This version includes BIG consensus changes - the consensus didn't used to take all of the previous block's transaction signature into consideration, and now, after block 320,000 it will, this should wholly prevent forking after block 320,000!

        It will also improve some issues we've been seeing on the Trade Portal, due to re-orgs needing to take place too frequently. Everything should be DRAMATICALLY improved as far as the consensus goes, which will have a nice 'trickle-down' effect to the other functions of the network.


        I will update the main post here with the new links shortly, have already updated qortal.org downloads page.


        https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363713980667133962/815306994536808468/unknown.png


        P.S. - if anyone is running the modified jar (dtac-xxx) - unless this version also receives the same consensus changes, it will not function after block 320,000... so it would be my advice to update to the release version (since the dtac mod also doesn't have auto-updates enabled, you will not auto-update if running this version) prior to block 320,000 - else your core will STOP WORKING. Just something to be aware of. Thanks!

        Yes, definitely flying under the radar. Quite OK if you are in a buying position. Not sure what the ultimate value/price of the coin will be, but it is way undervalued.

        What do u mean popping? Nobody on telegram knows what the boob this Quort sidechain is. I dont wanna strike out at the project but what is the purpose of making the LTC sidechain? Who needs LTC, cares to own it? And how about making a multichain swap thing, similar to CAKE, it seems to be promptly adopted by the users, and just swapping between coins instead of trading over the sidechain?

        Quote from: CROWETIC from Discord
        well, I guess my 'wording' could have been better, but 'yes'? ... lol... I was always not '100% sure' how certain aspects of what I was planning were going to function fully.
        But... thanks to our amazing lead dev. @𝑐𝑎𝑡 - we have come up with solutions for any of the 'issues' that were potentially there, and there have been multiple commits made recently to address them.
        There is not much left on the 'to-do list' now...
        AND...
        @here -
        I have a very exciting announcement for everyone who has been so patient and stood by us through this long process of development, etc...
         Initially, the plan was to make 2 platforms...* - this has since changed. Now... we are going to Combine the ideas of Qortal, and the ideas of QORA2, into the QORT platform.*
        What this means simply, is that QORT will not only be a TOTALLY without central authority trade portal... it will also have the social media, blogs, and web hosting capabilities of QORA2's plans.
        QORT will essentially be QORA2, and QORT.
        This I think will alleviate some 'confusion' for people, as they weren't seeming to really 'grasp' my nonsense rants in regard to my plans for two platforms previously anyway....
        SO...
        We are now going to have a platform capable of ... well... quite simply... BASICALLY ANYTHING.
        All with NO central control of any kind, no centralized management over any aspect, no 'permissions' needed aside from those that are between the two explicit parties wishing to execute a transaction, in the case of the trades, OR... between an account and the blockchain itself, or services hosted therein, again with no need for any centralized management or ownership whatsoever.
        The community will TRULY RUN THE PLATFORM.
        Our initial ideas for the Minters, will be the initial governance used for voting and control over 'direction', etc... followed by the implementation of the other algorithms for both the trade portal, and the content hosting and distribution aspects, allowing the community to literally have full control over the things they see within THEIR platform.
        This is something that I feel is WHAT BLOCKCHAIN WAS MEANT TO BE, before it was bastardized to hell by many greedy parties, looking to make profit.... as is most everything in today's world it would seem.
        The platform will be without any ONE control point, but instead with MANY decentralized control points, with a vote-inspired influence over platform direction, development direction, content 'management', coin 'listings', etc etc etc.
        Whole idea is that the 'founders' and the higher level initial minters, the ones that come over from QORA forgers, will be the baseline for the group that provides these votes.
        After which, the new line of minters, taking the time to support the network and therefore level their accounts up, can become as influential as they like, and include their more influential vote in whichever proposal they find suitable to their specific desires for the platform.
        Founders' influence will diminish over time, to a point that eventually, unless they keep up with their sufficient level of required network support and input, will become 'just like any other account'.
        if they DO keep up with things, they will be able to maintain a marginal 'lead' in influence at the beginning, during the time the platform will require that strong party of people supporting it and keeping it online, before handing it off to the people wishing to become minters and take over those duties, as well as the larger chunk of the block reward scheme.
        Eventually, though, founders will be set at a very slight advantage over any 'normal user' who has dedicated his efforts into supporting the network by running a full node, and thus completing his end of the 'give more get more' bargain that is inherently within QORT's design.
        Then, at a point as of yet undecided, and will be based on the level of 'need' for the founder's influence needing to be higher... founders will become 'a level 10 account' just like any other. Albeit, with the founder title still remaining, if for nothing other than 'recognition' as one of those that put blood sweat and tears into making the project become a reality.
        The level system with regard to the minting accounts, is incredibly important, and a core factor to the success and longterm viability of the project. Basing the rewards and voting influence on the platform, directly to the support given by the minting account, to the network itself.
        Essentially, if you prove yourself as a viable non-bad-actor full node on the network, and continue to provide yourself as such, remaining in stable uptime, connectivity, and full node status... you will be rewarded more greatly than others, and have a vote with a higher influence when cast than others. Directly relating your network support, to your reward and influence, is the whole idea that will begin at the launch...
        The focus will still be to get the trade portal going as the first 'service' on the chain.
        Then, we will put focus on the the 'blogs, web hosting, social media' aspects, and deal with any issues there for the initial implementation... giving way to 'THE INTERNET 2.0' blockchain hosted data, essentially fully 'unhackable' content hosting, services, etc... run by the same trusted network of full nodes that have been providing support and gaining levels within the system.
        Later, the implementation of a method for 'verifying good content', such as some sort of 'upvote' or the like, will be executed for those  of us who prefer to do more support by way of posting useful, helpful, or informative / funny / useful in whatever way... content on the system, for other users then to make use of.
        Then, people will be able to not only make more by supporting the network directly, as a full node... but also by supporting it by providing useful content, providing useful services that the community  enjoys, providing comedy, tutorials, the sky's the limit.
        While at the same time we keep the system rewarding those providing good reliable full nodes, too... as of course, those will continue to remain an extremely essential portion of the platform, ... (as is ANY blockchain platform, however it seems the focus on actually HAVING full nodes on the network, has seemingly gone by the wayside in many projects... a problem which I believe is extremely devastating to the long-term viability of a blockchain based platform.) After all... without those full nodes sitting there verifying the information and being the extremely important data hub that they are... the blockchain becomes weaker, and more heavily controlled into more selected hands, inevitably leading to the centralization of that chain to those who are clever enough to be able to host a full node, and/or intelligent enough to understand the fact that they can end up being majority force of the system, by being that node... This type of situation is something we're going to actively AVOID in QORT, hopefully leading us to a REVOLUTIONARY  and STRONG decentralized platform for anything anyone can dream up and build on the node network.
        This project is the culmination of MANY MANY YEARS of thought, practice, development, planning, and more... within the hearts and minds of MANY  extremely intelligent community members, developers, strategists, etc.
        and I am EXTREMELY EXCITED for what we will be seeing in the launch, so soon now!
        We will be launching not only with a fully constructed model and design, but also a fully functional and VERY EASY TO USE user interface, built completely from scratch by our development team. Nothing we have done is able to be done in any fashion other than 'completely by hand' given the complexity and extensive nature of the project. No using pre-built anything for our team.... we literally had to do EVERYTHING from SCRATCH here.
        however... we do believe that all of our work is going to be very well taken, and will pay off quite well for not only the developers and core people who have supported us and guided us along the way... but anyone who feels like they are down to experience and become part of this new idea in blockchain networks.
        Anyone still holding QORA will be rewarded for it.
        Anyone forging QORA blocks keeping the QORA chain moving, will be rewarded for it.
        Anyone being a full node on QORT, will be rewarded for it.
        The system doesn't descriminate based on amount of coin held, nor any other aspect aside from the basic 'support' of the network.
        if you have the will to ensure you are being a useful part of the community and system... you will be henceforth rewarded for those efforts, and as you continue to prove yourself, the rewards will grow, as will your influence over the platform's future.
        find you like what we're doing? Awesome, become influential and help ensure the platform moves the direction you hope it will...
        Don't like what is going on, want to see change? Great! Become influential and get your voice heard.
        No more will blockchains care only about the 'richest people' on the platform.
        since when does money = good ideas anyway?
        it's about time for a system that challenges everything that is wrong with the current designs.
        a system that is REALLY built BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, and gives those same people a voice, and a method to get that voice heard.
        no possible way to regulate the system, as NO ONE OWNS IT. EVERYONE OWNS IT.
        only 'regulation' comes from the system itself, and the users by way of proposals, and voting.
        Anyway... I will organize my thoughts a bit more, and post an announcement in the forums, sometime in the near future.
        For now I will pin this for those of  you brave enough to go back through my massive walls of text. :smile:
        just take away the essence of what I'm saying here, and know this... WE ARE VERY CLOSE NOW.
        I will still not be giving a date at this time, as I refuse to put any added stress on the developers, who have done amazing work for everyone without any complaints, and very little payment. However, I can say that daily we are coming up with new things, daily we are making more headway, and daily new commits being pushed, and testnet updated, testing being done in many aspects. Simulated tests, real tests, as much as possible to be done prior to the official launch.
        When will we see all this? Web hosting on Qortal blockchain ? Blogs ? Chain messaging ? etc

        I mean...it was stated in September 2019.
        Soon for 2 years already and there is still nothing but illiquid trading and a very often not operating network - forking, sync stucking.

        As I have said from the start, the core team will not seek listing or attempt to be listed on any centralized exchange. That being said, if an exchange chose to list us on their own volition, obviously that is something that we don't have control over, and therefore could happen.

        -ANN- version 1.5.0 - completely different sync methodology, choosing best chain prior to sync, and MUCH more - MAJOR UPDATE NOW LIVE

        The auto-update for version 1.5.0 was issued today - this version includes a completely different methodology behind the synchronizer code, and much more.

        We will be updating the links on the various locations as soon as the full release on GitHub, including the windows installer, etc... is finished, we might need another day for that.



        Current network users will automatically update - anyone on an older version that is behind the auto-update block will also automatically update.

        Github release right now has just the qortal.jar file, if you choose to update manually, you can simply replace your qortal.jar with the one on the GitHub releases page.


        You should only need to update manually if you downloaded the old version, and bootstrapped PAST the update block. Which I don't believe there is currently a bootstrap that is past the update block, but yea. If you sync from scratch, or sync from a point prior to the update block, you will update automatically.

        Thank you for all the support, and here's to the future of Qortal!

        He is correct Crowetic, the Qortal website shows <meta name='robots' content='noindex, nofollow' /> in the source. This means you are telling search engines not to index the website.

        Simple fix. In Wordpress admin, under Settings > Reading, make sure "Search engine visibility - Discourage search engines from indexing this site" is not checked

        Post by: crowetic on May 07, 2021, 07:52:21 PM
        -ANN- New Qortal Core version 1.5.1 released - new consensus kicks in Sunday May 9th!

        Auto-update has already taken place - if you are on the old version and running you will update automatically. If you are on the old version and bootstrap past the update block you will need to update manually. All links on website and ANN have been updated!

        We are really stoked about the new consensus, and I've also come up with a way for the Trade Portal to have a 'buy side' AND reduce the amount of AT processing necessary by quite a bit.


        More details will come soon on those points.

        Thank you for your continued support of Qortal!

        -ANN- version 1.5.2 of the Qortal Core has been released on Github

        As the title mentions, the new version 1.5.2 of the Qortal Core has been officially released on Github.

        The auto-update will be approved shortly by the required number of developer signers, and take place soon.

        All links on qortal.org and the ANN OP will be updated shortly.


        Thank you for your continued support of Qortal!



        (we will begin working on data storage functionality, and a LOT more after this update proves the final stability release we needed, things are going to get VERY exciting very soon!)


        edit - auto-update has been approved - network should begin updating shortly!

        https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/363713980667133962/843961552653910056/unknown.png


        list of improvements below.


        - Rework of the repository export and import functions - fixes recent trade portal issues
        - Tightened up the synchronizer, in order to reduce the number of 2-5 block re-orgs
        - Bumped bitcoinj version from 0.15.6 to 0.15.10
        - Fixed price API so that it uses the last 10 trades only. Previously it used EVERY trade that had ever happened.
        - Added optional "maxtrades" parameter to the price API, to specify a number other than 10.
        - Added new "minPeerVersion" and "allowConnectionsWithOlderPeerVersions" settings to ignore or block peers on older versions
        - "maxRetries" moved to settings
        - New /blocks/byheight/{height}/mintinginfo API
        - Fixed exception that could happen when syncing from genesis
        - Reduced frequency and level of some synchronizer logs.
        - Added AT count to block debug logs.

        ANN- Version 1.5.3 of the Qortal Core Released and auto-update approved!

        As the title says, version 1.5.3 of the Qortal Core has been released. Here is the list of additions (including new API calls to fix 'stuck' trades)

        Changes in this release:

        New API endpoints:

        Code:
        POST /crosschain/LitecoinACCTv1/redeemmessage
        GET /crosschain/htlc/redeemAll/LITECOIN (use this to automatically redeem any stuck LTC from sold QORT)
        GET /crosschain/htlc/redeem/LITECOIN/{ataddress}/{tradePrivateKey}/{secret}/{receivingAddress}
        GET /crosschain/htlc/redeem/LITECOIN/{ataddress}
        GET /crosschain/htlc/refund/LITECOIN/{ataddress}
        GET /crosschain/htlc/refund/LITECOIN/{ataddress}/{receivingAddress}
        GET /blocks/signature/{signature}/data

        Updated API endpoints:

        Code:
        /crosschain/htlc/* - all now use base58 encoded input parameters instead of hex
        /crosschain/btc/wallettransactions - returns JSON based on SimpleTransaction (necessary for transaction fix)
        /crosschain/ltc/wallettransactions - returns JSON based on SimpleTransaction (necessary for transaction fix)

        Other changes:

        Code:
        Rewrite of HSQLDBATRepository.getBlockATStatesAtHeight() SQL query, to speed up syncing
        Optimized base58 implementation used in the API
        BTC and LTC transactions should now display correctly in the wallet
        Include the connection age in the ConnectedPeer data, which can ultimately be shown in the UI

        So here we are almost two years later
        the Qortectors that the OP used to say "definitely aren't vaporware"   STILL have not been seen  (nice job editing that out of the OP btw ;) )
        and now they want to sell them AGAIN to the new users

        guys, dont be fooled, as i was
        this team isnt delivering value, they are just dumping their tokens
        making promises they cant deliver
        this has been years of a clownshow, but at a certain point it needs to be called as it is

        someone who cant develop, should never start a crypto project to begin with really lol

        god help anyone who gives these guys anymore money
        imagine stacking your own deck by setting your own tokenomics, and STILL fucking it this bad
        laughable
         


        and stop DMing me on discord you fools, i will just block you, i WONT give you any MORE of my money, sorry

        lol... you're funny.


        Not really sure what to say to all of this other than... are you okay bro? Seems like someone pissed in your breakfast cereal this morning or something?


        Not sure what you're on about, but I've been posting plenty of pictures of the new cases for the devices, and the kernel is already out there open source for anyone to use...

        https://github.com/qortal/brooklyn

        in fact, we just released a 'gaming version' today that will run emulators, and mint on the same machine.



        Nothing was removed from the OP... if you're talking about the hardware OP, that's another page...


        Everyone is already aware that the Gen 1 QORTector didn't go as expected. Everyone who paid for one in the pre-sale, got 500 QORT (which is already worth well over what they paid, essentially double), a pre-leveled minting account at level 3 (which would have minted them quite a bit more on top of the double-refund), and they will be getting a Gen 2 device once we're done establishing the company (which I will be doing within the next week now that we're finally back on top of things after all the nonsense.)

        So, if you're going to come in and vomit in a thread with a bunch of nonsense, maybe pick one where your nonsense will at least be PARTIALLY true? I guess, unless you LIKE looking like a total tool. If that's the case, totally up to you to continue doing so.

        Enjoy the rest of your day. I'll keep you in my thoughts about the whole breakfast cereal debacle. All the best!



        edit - you DO realize that it has been JUST UNDER 1 YEAR since Genesis, right? (Well, it must be my fault for expecting even the smallest portion of this out-of-nowhere nonsense-laden rant to be 'factually accurate')

        Can confirm, everything is usable.

        Last week I setup the Brooklyn on Raspberry Pi 4B 8GB.  
        Working great thus far!

        Tho now since the core got 1.5.4 update you guys might want to set up node on the VPS:

        Thanks for the confirmation bro. Glad Brooklyn is working out for you.

        I am not sure what 1.5.4 has to do with running on a VPS, but more power to you if you want to run another node on VPS along with your Brooklyn-powered Pi.


        The hardware company that will be selling the devices (tentatively called 'Crowetic Hardware Development, LLC.') will be formed in the very near future, as we finish prototyping the new fan-enabled (Noctua 40mm, only the best quality hardware and materials used) case, which I can show a picture of...

        top picture shows the older case and the newer (fan-enabled) version.

        edit - by the time I finished posting this the company had already been formed. Crowetic Hardware Development, LLC.

        I am not sure what 1.5.4 has to do with running on a VPS.


        It is cheaper (short-term) and more convenient (no extra hardware lying around the house) alternative for minting 24/7.  8)

        ANNouncement - new Qortal Core and Qortal UI versions released officially and auto-update for core to 1.5.5 approved! (UI changes to auto-update discussed below)


        As mentioned above... there are new versions of both the Qortal Core and the Qortal UI that have been released! You can always check on https://qortal.org for the latest links (I will update the OP as well shortly.).

        A few things to make note of...

        1. The new UI will NOT auto-update for the time being... we have made a bunch of changes to the UI, including the way the UI auto-updates. So for the current time, only the Qortal Core will auto-update. You will need to update the UI MANUALLY by downloading the installer for your OS and performing the update... until we work out the UI auto-updates and re-enable them.

        2. The Qortal Core will always auto-update via a group-signed transaction by the on-chain developer group. That will continue.

        3. You may notice the development 'speed' will be picking up here in the near future on both the Core and the UI... this is because of some awesome new contributors who are now helping with the project. We are forever grateful to these new contributors! Any other developers who would like to assist us are always welcome! Remember QORTAL IS A COMPLETELY COMMUNITY-DEVELOPED AND RUN PROJECT AND ANYONE IS FREE TO CONTRIBUTE IN ANY WAY THEY CAN!



         On another note, Crowetic Hardware Development, LLC. has been formed, and will start selling the QORTector and QORTable devices in the near future. We are working out some details for payment processing and other little things now, and have the brand new QORTector Gen 2 (SSD and Fan-enabled version) in production now!  Stay tuned, a lot more to come!


        We hope everyone is enjoying the continued progress with The Qortal Network!

        We are also now working on DATA STORAGE, and NEW COIN SUPPORT in the Trade Portal. A lot of awesome stuff coming SOON!

        Thanks bro! It has certainly been a ride to get here, but I'm feeling very confident about the future now! Everything is coming together quite well both in the Core and the UI. I think we can expect some exciting new features, new coins, and a lot more in the very near future. :) Stay tuned, Qortal is about to get VERY exciting! The new internet is very near.

        This is an amazing project. Been using the Qortal decentralized internet for about a week . It is truly amazing. Has very active development on git. The team and community are amazing. Love what you are doing. Keep it up. They have a clear path to decentralized domain hosting. The trade portal is in fact a TRUE decentralizes exchange. They have a very neat  low carbon footprint “minting “ reward structure. The decentralized Q-chat is a lot of fun. The UI is elegant with a strong low power consuming core. All around great project with a bunch of much needed decentralized utilities . Currently we established a “bitcoin eco “ group on Qortal . So join us on Qortal@bitcoin eco.
