1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Bounties (Altcoins) / [BOUNTY] Aura - full node - network stats - passive income on: February 14, 2018, 10:23:03 PM
Aura Full Node Network Status Bounty

Total bounty amount: 6000 aura
Duration: 6 months
Payouts: every month

The full node network stats bounty enables you to earn some spare aura simply by running a full node on your computer and connecting to the network stats site.  Connecting to the network stats site does involve working with the command line, but it is not too difficult.  Some users have run into network issues and have had to use a different computer to get it to work however, YMMV.

How to participate:
Register your node using this google form
Check your registration here (may take up to 24 hours to be updated):

Follow the instructions below on how to join the network stats.

How rewards are calculated:
The stats website will be monitored multiple times per day, and everyone who is listed when the check occurs will earn 1 stake.  At the end of each month, 1000 aura will be divided evenly between all stake holders.  So, for example, if only 10 people participate, and they all are online the whole month, they will each get 100 aura at the end of the month.

How to join the network stats page:

1. Install Git
Windows: (default settings during install should be fine)
sudo apt-get install git
brew install git

2. Install NodeJS
sudo apt-get install node
(or nodejs)
brew install node

The rest of the commands should be run in a command window, terminal, or shell, and should be the same for all platforms (linux users might need to prepend some of these with 'sudo')

3. Install pm2
npm install -g pm2

4. Start aura with RPC enabled
Download a node for your platform from
navigate to your extracted aura download folder and run
aura -rpc

5. Get the stats project
open a new command window
git clone
cd eth-net-intelligence-api
npm install

6. Edit the app.json file in the eth-net-intelligence-api folder, and set the INSTANCE_NAME a unique name
    "name"              : "node-app",
    "script"            : "app.js",
    "log_date_format"   : "YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm Z",
    "merge_logs"        : false,
    "watch"             : false,
    "max_restarts"      : 10,
    "exec_interpreter"  : "node",
    "exec_mode"         : "fork_mode",
      "NODE_ENV"        : "production",
      "RPC_HOST"        : "",
      "RPC_PORT"        : "8545",
      "LISTENING_PORT"  : "30303",
      "CONTACT_DETAILS" : "",
      "WS_SERVER"       : "",
      "WS_SECRET"       : "muhsecret",
      "VERBOSITY"       : 2

7. start the stats monitor
pm2 start app.json

8. check your status
pm2 show 0
pm2 logs
see if there are any errors

note: a few people have reported a Web3 connection error in the logs, seems to be random, and restarting the entire process might fix it.  Looks like it happens on ethereum too

9. check for your instance to show up at (it can take 10-15 minutes)
2  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Atomic swap fee limitation on: February 14, 2018, 04:02:38 AM
Until or something similar is implemented, there is a major drawback to atomic swaps between bitcoin based coins and ethereum based coins.  Namely, users receiving ethereum from an atomic swap are required to already own some ether in order to execute the redeem transaction call.  This is a big limitation for new users trying to get their first ethers or aura from a decentralized exchange.  In bitcoin based coins, this just comes from the input, since the htlc contract works just like any other transaction input that pays the mining fee.

If you could tokenize yourself, what would you use your tokenized self for?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN][ETHASH][PoW] Aura - Smart Contract Ledger & YouStock - Tokenized Selfhood on: January 25, 2018, 12:26:56 AM
Aura is an alternate ethereum blockchain and smart contract platform.  It was created to be the foundation for YouStock, a new platform that will allow people to easily create and trade self stocks (ERC20 like tokens) that represent themself.

Ticker: ARA
Algorithm: Dagger-Hashimoto
Reward: 3
Block Time: 15 seconds
Max Mined Coins: 12,000,000
Premine: 600,000(5%)
Premine Address: 0x47Ead7D1AA40674634de5b2AF86b93C48AdfF55b

Aura will use Proof-of-Work mining for about 2 years (3,800,000 blocks) and then switch to a Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm.  The emission rate while mining is 3 aura per block, with 15 second blocks. This works out to 11,400,000 aura minted through mining.  The premine will primarily be used to incentivize users of the YouStock platform once it is live, run bounties, reward early adopters, and to support the long term success of the project.
