Hello everyone!
Congratulations on the project's birthday (the third one!), and we are happy to announce that we are rolling out a new release with Tor support out of the box! This build does not install any additional components to support Tor. Instead, we natively implemented protocol support, avoiding the need to keep the loaded Tor network service in memory all the time. It was a big and challenging job since such libraries did not exist before, and we put a lot of effort into achieving this result. In addition, we have closed all the "issues" in GitHub (but @musclesonvacation recently managed to write new ones), and a lot of fixes and improvements have been made based on those reports.
Thanks to everyone for your support and collaboration!

Release short rummary:
  • !!!Added TOR support for transactions relaying(both simplewallet and UI)!!!
  • predownload bumped up to 1569k
  • wallet: minor htlc error-handling improvement
  • Fixed multiple minor issues #262, #319, #318, #284, #277, #262
  • Implement smart blacklisting of wrong nodes (#293)
  • Fixed multiple UI artefacts
  • Added command line option to disable price fetching from GUI wallet (#315)

FYI: With this new release, we added lib OpenSSL to dependencies (and added instructions for it's setup in readme), also, we have changed the minimal Boost version to 1.70 due to the latest changes in the codebase.

Yes, it will be enabled by default.

Awesome !

We already got thin TOR library, you can take a look into it if you wish: https://github.com/hyle-team/tor-connect

Oh, I wasn't expecting a full reimplementation of the Tor stack. Is there any particular technical reason to do so that I am missing ?
Because there's so many ways it could go wrong : no padding, no guard rotation, no stream isolation, no pluggable transport for censorship resilience, nor every other crucial security/privacy features that Tor have implemented over time.

If this is only a matter of porting the Tor build process to CMake, which I believe has already been done by other projects, maybe it would be more interesting to go that way than reinventing the wheel ?

Other ToR implementations works as a resident process/daemon, which is not suitable for mobile application, we wanted to have light implementation which create "circle" and deliver tx to outer world. Also, tx itself is not something private - this info is absolutely public, so exit nodes won't hurt any privacy aspects of transaction, only if someone can re-construct full circle of onion route and figure out ip address, which i guess quite hard with ToR.

Hey, we've decided to go with Tor. Afaik the library is ready and it's just a matter of integrating it.

That's a great news !
Yes, Tor is a solid choice : ZCash for instance also chose it, and is funding a rust implementation named 'Arti', which is quite exciting Smiley (Let's just hope that it won't have the same ending as Kovri...)

I have a question regarding the implementation : will the use of Tor Hidden Services be enforced by default ? I personally hope so, as privacy should always be the default (or there isn't any privacy at all). And in the specific case of Tor, it eliminates the risk of malicious exit nodes (as Hidden Services don't use them), which also matters in terms of security : https://www.researchgate.net/publication/305053676_Bitcoin_over_Tor_isn%27t_a_Good_Idea (not 100% applicable to Zano, just an example of what type of attacks could be used).

This is why I added f != 0 (mod L) requirement to section 3.3. And there's an easy way to ensure f != 0 for commitments without additional data. I'm going to cover this in the next paper update.

Perfect, thank you very much !

We at Zano don't favor cold staking much because we believe it creates incentives that favor centralization.

Mhh, I don't know if we are talking about the same implementation of cold staking : I was referring to the ability to stake with funds secured in a Hardware Wallet. So, even if someone succeed to compromise my computer, my funds would still be safe. This is imho an important security feature. I share your concerns regarding an implementation that allows the creation of "Staking Pools", I also do not like this type of centralization and this is not what I was referring to. So my exact question would rather be, is staking with funds secured in a hardware wallet something that Zano could do in the future ?

Hi, thank you for the question.
From that perspective it is possible theoretically, but only if there will be a hardware wallet that will be able to provide necessary information for staking algo (such as key images), and also it should be capable to perform signing of generated blocks without user interaction(which is not considered as a weakness, since it can't lead to unauthorised transfer of coins if properly implemented).

I appear to have 5000 bbr on poloniex I had wanted to turn them into zano but poloniex wouldn't let me take them out and didnt reply to my messages.

Is bbr still going to exist and is it worth me attempting to keep hassle polo to let me withdraw?

We maintain the network and seed servers. But i can't tell for Poloneix if they ever let your coins go.

I have been mining with 145 pcs GTX1050 2GB GPU for years.
But im getting illegal access memory warning for 2 days. What happened ?
Probably scratchpad size overlapped in miner, what miner are you using?

Can I ask, are there translations of the opening post in the other language sections? Russian even?

To my knowledge not yet.

Can I PoS mint in simplewallet? Or have I to use GUI?

Sure, you can use simplewallet for staking:

simplewallet --rpc-bind-port=yourport --wallet-file=path\to\your.file --do-pos-mining --deaf

--rpc-bind-port - this needed to launch simplewallet in server mode
--do-pos-mining - this tells wallet to launch staking
--deaf - tells simplewallet to ignore any network rpc requests (for safety reasons)

How do I run zanod in the background on linux? I tried "nohup ./zanod >zanod.log &", but this fails.

you can use "screen" command for that(it basically can run any app in background).

Hi everyone!  
A new release has just been published (v1.1.7.112).  

This release contains a series of UI enhancements, the resolution of the infamous "core is busy" bug, plus - one of our key features - auditable wallets so you can monitor any wallet in real-time using their tracking seed.  The team is proud to announce that they embrace full transparency and have released the Foundation Fund tracking seed which allows you to see every single transaction (incoming AND outgoing). The foundation fund tracking seed is:

Hey folks!

We are very excited to announce three major updates on the progress we have made over the last several months. We have gone into detail here in the medium article (https://medium.com/@zano_project/zano-dev-update-auditable-wallets-mobile-app-release-and-new-team-member-e86bd2eb87de) but in short these are the 3 main points:

*First of all - We have a new GUI release v1.1.7.96, which includes Auditable wallets! Now in Zano it is possible to create special type of wallets - auditable wallets. This wallets let you share special information about that wallet, we call it "tracking seed", and with this information third party is capable to follow wallet transactions and balance. Now public funds got powerful tool for sharing it's financial status and prove consistency.


*Secondly, we have launched the Zano Mobile Wallet, now officially available in Apple Store and Google Play! We’ve spent the last few months developing our own mobile application and our own server protocol from the ground up. We conducted a thorough beta testing of the application (thanks to the community volunteers), and we hope that we have fixed all the bugs, but nevertheless, we ask you to use the application guardedly in the first month and not transfer all your assets to it. Very IMPORTANT(!!!): always write down the seed phrase after creating a new wallet. Feel free to report any problems to our discord channel #mobile-bug-reports or to the channel https://www.reddit.com/r/Zano/ or to our mail: support at our domain.



*And finally — the hottest and most exciting news we want to share is mathematician researcher Anton Sokolov has joined the Zano team! Anton is a nuclear physicist by education, most of his professional life he was engaged in software engineering and various research for IT projects related to mathematics.
We’ve been in touch with Anton for the last couple of years, sharing discussions of blockchain-related technologies and global events in the industry. In the fall of last year, Anton made several publications regarding the theoretical possibility of implementing auditable wallets in his blog, we have mentioned some of them in this article. For the last months Anton has been working on theoretical work dedicated to log-size ring signatures. This signatures theoretically allows for a logarithmic relationship between the number of decoys and the size/performance of transactions. This means that we can set mixins at a level from up to 1000, keeping the reasonable size and processing speed of transactions. This level of anonymity set will allow us to take Zano’s privacy to a whole new level, and we believe this technology will turn out to be groundbreaking!

It seems btc-alpha is delisting some coins, BBR is one of them. STEX is running, but with KYC only. Time to search for a new exchange.

BOOLBERRY SHOULD BE LISTED ON TRADEOGRE--

I have read that there is no fee involved in listing a coin on TradeOgre.  However, it may require a group effort.

Zano is listed on TradeOgre, it would be good to keep the classic BoolBerry on the same exchange.  Easier for the developer to keep track of his older project, at least.

Boolberry is a low-energy, low-stress coin.  I mine it with my 750ti cards, and they are very efficient even today.

Please suggest any other decent exchange you may be familiar with.       --scryptr

TradeOgr don't list for a fee to my knowledge.
Zano got listed there because Zano community been active on that, and been reaching out exchange.
I guess this is what the Boolberry community supposed to do.
