1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][NO-PREMINE][QuarryMN][EtherGEM] An ethereum network with a different view on: August 29, 2020, 12:48:42 PM
So Ethergem provides a Decentralized exchange, thats is truly decentralized, Where I can keep all my crypto on the same address and private key, and in this wallet with Egem Sapphire, i will be able to send BTC (and everthing else?) in 5 seconds through Quantum Swaps? Is it really sending for example Bitcoin, on Bitcoins Blockchain or is it just like a wrapped BTC ?
Trying to get a better understanding.
thanks , cheers.

Hi, it is doing multiple things and yes to the above, but you mention three different functionalities.

1) Where I can keep all my crypto on the same address and private key, and in this wallet with Egem Sapphire

Egem and Sapphire are two blockchains that are intertwined in a way although  EGEM in independent and we place dependencies on sapphire related to egem for future functionality and to share comon resources. One of those common resources is the wallet format which is borrowed from Ethereum anyway - so the cryptography and functions behind an ethereum wallet. This means an EEGEM address works on both blockchains. Additionally we use some functions to derive BTC and other chain addresses from the Ethereum private key so that you can use it on multiple chains in this way - this is just using baked in functionality on an ethereum chain (EGEM chain) and releasing it in the mobile wallet.

You can see our mobile wallet history and the multi currency function at our youtube channel and if you go back a bit there are videos where we send LTC and BTC from an EGEM address there is also sapphire and other token coin transfers on there... I love this wallet for a reason! https://www.youtube.com/c/egemofficial

2) Sapphire is also multi currency chain in that you can have SFRX or other coins associated to your wallet - on Ethereum this concept is with tokens, but on Sapphire it is actual coins. There is, of course SFRX, but there is also other coins that can be natively released or "quantumn swapped" into from another chain and so they are representations of coins on other chains.

3) 5 second bitcoin is easier eplained in my post here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5063954.msg55088349#msg55088349

It is transfer of ownership of native coins.

So this is the three things we are bringing together on Sapphire chain and remember we are still in development of sapphire. I have made public posts when I achive each concept in principle and we are getting closer to fielding a live chain every day. However, it is not live yet. Anyway feel free to stop by discord.egem.io for more conversation on this topice.

Great updates! Whats the difference from a wrapped BTC and a 5 sec BTC transfer with Egem Sapphire? Do you send a real BTC in 5 seconds?
thanks again. cheers

Wrapped BTC is not BTC but a substitute for BTC that requires you to get it from the wrapped source right?

"wBTC is a BTC-backed ERC20 token. Each wBTC in circulation is backed 1:1 by Bitcoin and is held in cold storage by BitGo, the first qualified custodian purpose-built for storing digital assets"

that is the quote from https://coinlist.co/asset/wrapped-bitcoin?gclid=Cj0KCQjw-af6BRC5ARIsAALPIlUIDv2SlDLejgxGfOnjXci3g7rjw42lPekMmmBMe3_pbLj6G0apUIgaAvbeEALw_wcB

so sure you can send it to another party as fast as the blockchain it is wrapped on, but then when you want to withdraw that BTC to your BTC wallet or the receiver wants to spend it as BTC they have to wait 30 minutes (3 confirms) for the "unwrap" of that WBTC to get their actual BTC in their BTC wallet on the BTC chain and pay a fee. (I' not even going to talk about the part where its held by a custodian of sorts)

Now let's compare and contrast that to the 5 second BTC idea. The 5 second BTC idea follows this principle in life:

"own nothing and control everything"

so what that means is you actually don't have ownership of the BTC private key but it is stored in such a way that you control it with your EGEM account. So what good is that? Well, you could sign a transaction that sends that BTC to any BTC wallet you want to and it happens because you control access to that private key even though you don't have it in your possession. Okay so great we can send some BTC using a wrapped wallet that listens to our EGEM private key. What good is that?

so the next principle in your answer is this:

"Make that control transferable in part or whole"

So, that means you have another option with your BTC is you can transfer control of that BTC to another party in whole or part. This means you can prove that you don't have access to that BTC pk any more with your egem wallet and someone else (whoever you transferred it to) does. And the whole or part means they have access to the unspent satoshis they own, because you might only be transferring half of your stash to them on BTC.  So its not even just control but specific control of the parts that make up the BTC. Using this approach a transfer is instant when its recorded so as long as you can use the next principle I am going to mention (below) you can transfer as fast as the host block chain can record that transfer which iin our case is a goal of 5 seconds. You did not have to move the bitcoin to have the new owner get real bitcoin on the real bitcoin chain in their wallet and pretty much that is immediately done. The receiver has full control over this bitcoin to send it wherever they want and they did not have to wait for any confirms on the BTC block chain, they can prove that the balance is there on the BTC block chain and that they own it, so that is a real BTC transfer of ownership in almost an immediate (in this case 5 second) event.

So then what is that last principle?

"Post and Prove it in the wide open on chain public"

This is where sapphire chain comes in because you have the ability(and the person you are trading with or transferring to has the ability) to run functions that prove publicly that you dont have the private key for the BTC you traded them and that they do not have it either but that they control it and you don't.

And, finally we do this by using native functionality to the block chain which is this: signed messages. It works since beginning of time, just ask Craig Wright about the ability to fake a signed message from a BTC address. He could not do it on bitcoin and he can't do it on a respectable block chain. So this is the accepted standard for proof of ownership.

This snippets are from an upcoming article I will eventually ffinish and post called "How to start a truly decentralized bank on EGEM" and it deals specifically with why this is the method I chose to implement transfers.

Sapphire is truly decentralized on chain experience and we are getting close. If you like what you read, please come to discord.egem.io and find the #sfrx-chat channel and stop by. We have a GPU miner starting to show in tests and the chain is getting close to an initial fielding. This is after over two years of work. We are not fly by nighters, but are going to be working on this until it goes live. You have a chance to participate in it with us at egem.io and see all the other stuff we have as part of this ecosystem including nodes and bot interaction, mining on older GPUs, a great eth core, a multi currency mobile wallet, and more.

This is what a tx looks like from the miner (Quarry-Miner-Alpha-0.0.1)

This is the receiver balance on Egem Opal Mobile wallet (see previous post for links)

There were three nodes up when this was done and the localhost version of the node received the tx and balance on explorer correct

will be updating this post with more...

Here is the second transaction on youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y43NzZPSfzg

and then mined a few blocks to get the senders address with enough funds to cover... during testing I allow credit on balances (negatives) and have small mining reward to simulate later on in life of chain

From an email regarding recent releases of mobile wallet and sapphire...

Sorry for the late reply. I was working through some early bugs in my beta release wallet.

https://wiki.egem.io/egemwallet

Here is a link to the current apk which does EGEM LTC BTC BTCtestnet ETH PIRL ETHO and our own egem test trading token ETTT. It also does my internal coin sapphire but it's hidden in this release because its just starting to work.

I don't have a lot of documentation for you yet, but one of the guys did two write ups...

https://gitlab.com/ethergem/egem-mobile/-/blob/master/EGEM_wallet_back_up.docx

(if you take the backup of the slide up secrets and paste it into a file that you save locally before you use your wallet it is best)

https://gitlab.com/ethergem/egem-mobile/-/blob/master/EGEM_wallet_use.docx   

and here is the youtube channel with videos.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZIw0AWMZPSbgLfjNNMS_6g?view_as=subscriber 

We are telling everyone to be careful with large funds in any of these wallets until we get some road miles on usage. You can certainly use these for creating addresses and using them, but might want to seek a more secure storage mechanism if you are holding large funds for a long period of time. I might make a more hardware wallet maker that runs locally and allows you to keep storage funds off the grid. Technically, all the wallets made in the mobile app never leave the app. However, they are stored locally in the app storage and in memory while its being used. It's as safe as anything you use on a computer. If the computer itself (your phone) gets compromised then it can be an issue - although - even with me having the ownership of my phone I cant find where the storage is as a user of the phone, so maybe its safer then I give it credit for. I can't even hack it unless I use the app itself and I don't know that there are any hackers using the compromised devices on mobile. Anyway, it passes security checks when they run, and the underlying security is from google libraries which I am pretty sure isolate themselves to the application backend (i.e. making it extremely safe). I just would like to do more proper penetration testing before going mainstream with big funds.

If you ask me, would I use these wallets myself? Yes. For larger funds I might just transfer enough into one of these wallets to get a transaction done or a trade though. For long term storage I (as well as anyone else) is extremely paranoid and that means a process that is easier to read about with some searches. But, the end idea is I am designing this wallet for everyday use and at the merchant and to exchange with various mechanisms. So, to that end, I love this wallet for usage and feel it has great potential as crypto starts to go up now in a bull market.

ETH and LTC are low cost with high potential. Both are on the mobile wallet. EGEM is extremely low cost and going up...

Good luck and lets talk soon.

After a little bit of a rebuilding period SFRX development is back on. Some of the concepts in using crypto are advanced to even me as a developer and take some time to work though. One of the things I had issues with in the previous almost release was I tried to make my own Patricia Merkle Trie type structure without studying why it was used that way in ETH. I also couldn't figure out how to use it before in my code on two different peers and ended up giving up and creating my own blend of the concept, a KV db, and a peer hash based on checkpoints that kind of worked but not so well as I thought it would. Let's just say there is room for error in calculating hashes on patterns and especially if you use a reduced data set on that pattern in every peer evaluating the hash on the same set of transaction each block and the blocks are empty. I could have figured that part out but the filesize for this tree substitute was getting kind of heavy also. Now, ETH is a heavy ass chain (large file size) so maybe this isn't the best evaluator.

Just to close that thought from above I used the PMT in the new version of sapphire and its easier to sync now. There are other improvements for managing the peers, but let's continue talking about ETH...

I think most of ETH heaviness, though, is more related to a 15 second or less block time average and I mean look at all you can do on the block. I love using an ethereum clone as a base for sapphire. It makes it so easy to use the address and signature capabilities of legacy chains and merge them into a product. I mean, by definition, that means cross chain functionality. If the functionality on the legacy chain will also work on your chain then it works "cross chain" in some regard once you figure out the link between the chains. Embed the "link" into your own chain and you create the link. Embed the functionality from multiple other currencies and you extend that relationship to all those chains. Since at least one of them (Eth) and now even other's like BCH, give you the ability to release your own currencies in the form of tokens you have a powerhouse concept. So, this is where my brain goes on Sapphire. I don't care how long it takes me to make it, it's fun to work on.

Anyway the multi currency capability I started with is using an Ethereum address to generate a bitcoin address and then you have one private key and two chain public keys. I mean this is a "derived wallet" in a way. I only use a sub set of the Ethereum private key and I know there are some pre deterministic features of that combination (like people have names wallets that start with a combination of characters extending so far into the public key address that it gives the ability to make the name - that means some of the pk can be figured out...). The other potential weakness is I derive a bitcoin public key from the ethereum private key which makes a public ethereum address too. If you make enough of these combination of addresses and evaluate the public key discrepancies could a patter be figured out that can reverse engineer to the ethereum private key used to make a public bitcoin address? I doubt it - I think even if it was it would have to use both every time in the calculation, and also I think it violates one of the rules of a certain type of cryptographic fundamental.   That fundamental is something like if you hash two different inputs the output is different enough that there is not a pattern to identify the input.

So, I am putting some of the functions on the mobile wallet for now as I finish up sapphire. You can check it out on youtube or at our discord. The mobile wallet sends a bunch of coins with one pk and one of those coins is our own internal token set ETTT (Egem Test Trading Token) and ETT (Egem Trading Token). We are always at discord.egem.io

See its been rather quiet down here in bitcointalk, my reason is that i just dont use it, but i will need to make a bigger effort into doing so, there is so much information given in discord!
But i guess not everyone uses discord!

There have been team members leaving ethergem, because of that everything had to be moved to a new server and some stuff needed some work, like the explore had some bugs that @riddlez666 took care off and its been running flawless.

One of the other changes is that there will be a mobile wallet/trading DEX app coming out soon, after that is stable and released work on SFRX will continue.

here are a few videos of the progress, dont just the layout, atm its important that its going to function, the looks are of a later concern!
below some videos, but please go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZIw0AWMZPSbgLfjNNMS_6g to see others and comment.

Nice update!!

I added some other things that go with that in these two tweets:

https://twitter.com/os03se/status/1149290219109322752

https://twitter.com/os03se/status/1149327761154150400

I also wanted to reference a conversation from the community devs on discord (discord.egem.io). It is an old metric to use for software development valuations, but software lines of code is one way to look at the original dev work on EGEM and Sapphire. Using a very conservative number (under reporting) because our lines of code will be optimized downward over the next few months, I started looking at how to value what we do. I also used the rates in this table:

https://pm.stackexchange.com/questions/16082/what-are-acceptable-sloc-rates

..which are arguably a couple years out of date. I took the low side rates.

Just looking at that though, a valuation of original software would put the EGEM current trading prices at 1/10 of what it would cost to build such a system.

I would like others input on this conversation please.

Kodiak listed me as a dev without my original permission and I never did anything on the core of LMO. I have publicly stated this on twitter and ended up with a new discord for kodiak broken community. Your problems are with kodiak and not me. I also proved that the game I worked on for LMO (which was what I said I built for the coin in the dev area) worked and there is a video of it. I offered other devs to take over that project and work on it as I have time. Bottom line, I don't work for you and I did not pump the LMO shitcoin. In fact I have done everything I can to pick up the pieces for a community that trusted another (since you brought up the shitcoin ELLA) anonymous dev without knowing anything about him or the coin - I'm talking about kodiak. That falls under DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH DYOR and it is your responsibility not mine. So please don't show up on my other projects and post stuff demanding answers because they are in your mirror at home. You are welcome to come to the new LMO discord and compile the code and run your LMO and if you are successful in getting it up and running I can even get you the dev premine because unlike you I did do a little of my own research. I have contact with kodiak who is not a bad guy but hes just a college kid who got overwhelmed by apparently a bunch of pnd characters on that college project coin (LMO). Here is the new discord link for LMO https://discord.gg/kaXkRZA don't worry in advance - I probably wont be responding to much when you ask me about it other than what I said above. The reason is that SAPPHIRE is my publicly advertised baby and pet project and wher I spend my time.

now for those of you who are here to talk about sapphire here is the link to the EGEM discord:https://discord.gg/bQXDtUU and this is where you can find me working away on this chain



I have replied to your attempted slander of my profile on the sapphire ANN

This is not LMO and you have no idea what you are talking about. Please do not post on EGEM of SFRX again about it. I have always ben open and honest with the community on my various projects and work as above explains. We are not in the habit of banning people on EGEM and SFRX but Im not going to have an LMO hate campaign going on over here as its unrelated.

A discord user asked about bitcoin addresses on SFRX chain so here is the answer:

Mornin'
When building this I took several implementation routes to integrate other coins. The first route was to create a BTC address directly related to your EGEM address and use it in HTLC (hash time lock contracts) and with the lightning network protocol of sorts possibly combined with the BTC relay. So, yes you do have a egem address related BTC address (in fact two of them) that you can send funds to.... however that is not the magic....
As soon as I implemented that idea I went into another thought pattern where I can create a BTC address that the network has the private key in such a way that it needs multiple parties to unlock - kind of a multisig of sorts. However, the cosigner is software and as long as you meet certain conditions it automatically signs. Those conditions are that you signed a transaction with your EGEM address and posted it to the sapphire chain. And it is programmed to give you 2 options (3 if you include creating the address) 1) prove you own the BTC address and 2) transfer ownership of that address unspent transaction outputs to someone else's EGEM address (and then 3 create and address for you). So, then there is another issue....
the other issue is I cant store a bitcoin (or any other coin) private key on a public chain or else someone can just decipher the info on the chain and grab the funds right? So this became a game. There is not really a way to do it specifically on EGEM or with a contract because all that info is public. There are derived  contract addresses on Eth and some other methods, but I chose to implement my own protocol. My protocol can be summed up as "not me" and "i dont know which of them"...
this means I connect my wallet to a node any node and request a BTC address....
but wait a minute the node itself cant just encrypt stuff that would be nuts....we could dump its memory and search for the unlocker to that encryption, right?
(this is a mind fuck so hang in there)
and I researched encrypted hard drives and all that - its a waste of time there is no encrypted storage that cant be hacked at the end of the day....
but there is a little concept that created our whole industry called public private key pairs PGP
you have to remember another concept - my name OSOESE is a recursive algorithm - I wont explain the name but recursion means you do a concept one time that keeps calling itself until it gets to the solution condition then returns the solution to all those calls until it reaches back to the original call....its like climbing way way down in the rabbit hole until solution is found and leaving a string and it climbs is way back up with the solution by pulling on the string
so without too much technical detail this kind of happens on the nodes....
"not me" means I have encrypted information but where is it stored on my hard drive then he answers with "not me"
because his encrypted information is on another node
but which one?
"i dont know"
he doesnt know where it is stored (or where it was created)
so how does he get it?
he has the ability to encrypt data to a public key that was given to him y another node - with encryption that is stored on guess what - another node
and the process happens through network transactions that are encrypted to look alike
so that core concept is what happens just to encrypt the nodes and their communication....he (the node you called) may not know where the data is or where the encryption is stored but through a network call he can get it returned to him and get it unencrypted..... the parts he needs to do his job
now techicallly while this is happening you can dump the memory and catch it
but that is where the part about not knowing where it is comes in
you dont know which node to pull
and neither does the node you called
and all the nodes are first and foremost running a protocol that locks their code and proves they are up and running
so anyway - like i said its a rabbit hole.....and after all that shit we only have encrypted nodes basically
now you called the node to get a BTC address not to care about the nodes encryption process
your signed transaction is coded on the chain to create a BTC address in that encrypted node network and it is only able to be triggered by your [EGEM] signature
unless you sign one thing -> transfer of that control to another party
so if you look at my BTC proof the 5 second thing
the first step is I make an address on the BTC testnet over the node encryption - it looks easy because all that stuff :point_up: is just running and I dont need to explain it
then I send some funds to that address
then I sign a proof that my EGEM address owns that BTC address
then I transfer the ownership of the enture address to @sehidcan test EGEM address
then I log into another wallet with sehidcan address and make another signature proof that sehidcan EGEM address owns the bitcoin address
neither sehidcan or me have the bitcoin private key so we cant reneg on our deal and steal the funds
only the registered EGEM address can unlock and transfer the funds or control of the wallet
and this happens on sapphire
in fact I think the last step of my proof is that I cant sign the address any more  because I transfered ownership
so that is sapphire BTC address in a ling drawn out explanation
and thats also why it took a few months longer to make than I anticipated, because the original protocol did not have BTC transfers in this way

Deposited some coins, did trade: things were fine but when i made a withdrawal request for 0.37 BTC, it was not processed. After couple of hours and sending message to support team, see what they replied. They just steal all my funds.

Dear Trader,

We're forced to inform that your account has been blocked due to violations of our Terms and Conditions.
This is final decision and we'll not review your applications in future.
We apologize for any inconvenience this caused.

With kind regards,
BiteBTC Support Team

They basically allure customers by faking trade prices and volumes and creating artificial arbitrage opportunities. Most of customers get to know these fake arbitrage opportunities through coinmarketcap. I think CMC being a trustworthy platform, they should make note of such fraud exchanges and make sure they are not listed on CMC platform. I request people who have been cheated to contact CMC advising them to block BiteBTC on their platform.



I linked to this post on the main front page and will link others summaries as well if you send me a DM copying the format. Post your details in the thread and private message me a link. Look at the front page at the top for how this one shows up for an example. Thanks.

I just want to make the update that I posted the first proof a few days ago on EGEM discord

https://twitter.com/delusionaleuph1/status/1108088658723131392

That tweet link is a quick synopsis... I am using (ofc) testnet BTC until everything is stable.

In the PDF proof, which I will upload in this post, the UI for the desktop wallet is pretty much ugly. It is my dev code. We already have improved it considerably, and a real designer is working on the UI for me to post a proper proof which is coming soon.

Here is the proof

https://github.com/osoese/5SECPDF/blob/master/5-second-btc-proof-of-concept%20.pdf

just a quick note if you see me talk about "deleting from database" this is the local peer client level db just like any other blockchain holds on each peer client. This blockchain and this proof are 100% decentralized and hosted on peer client nodes with no central authority. I would not have it any other way. This is also 100% the challenge and why I am so happy I have this starting to work.

Thanks for your interest.

Here is the signature proof for your own verifications:

You will note both parties were able to sign a proof that they owned this address at different times (in the PDF). That is the magic of a 5 second transfer - it is kind of like a blockchain based "pointer" to the transaction that you are simply transferring to another party and it is held in such a way that you control it with a private key but that neither party has "the" private key to the address being transferred. The entire time they can prove they own it with one of the following signature proofs. They can transfer funds by signing with the BTC pk through the chain. The can transfer the ownership of that access to the BTC confirmed funds in a sapphire transaction (either on dex or just a send).

The confirmed funds:

The proof of the final owner (which he can transfer this again when he wants to):

signature

I go to this site and validate it… https://blockexplorer.com/messages/verify 
 

A note on the next steps...here is the desktop wallet that owns the address I transferred. You can see that the address shows but the balance does not in the "sapphire balances." This is because a better solution presented itself to me at game time for showing the "locked funds." I am updating to not only show the balance there but also to actually video the transfer and an exchange on the dex. If you read the PDF you see I did some things manually this round by signing and posting a transaction directly to a node. Next up it will just show where the highlighted areas are.



Thank you for your interest

is possible to claim the SFRX award on block 1530000 (of 2 SFRX to 1 EGEM)?

Absolutely - when the chain launches you will have it in that address on chain. I will launch the chain as soon as its ready and post regular updates as to my progress in the EGEM discord or when requested.

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Quantum Swaps and SFRX update for "5 second bitcoin" on: March 10, 2019, 03:10:57 PM
I have not posted on here in quite some time because of development. I have some exciting news as Sapphire nears a public launch about what we call QUANTUM SWAPS (internally I call it '5 second bitcoin'). First some quick background on the project in case you never heard of this before:

We over at EGEM did a fair launch ETH clone with no ICO and used that platform to add the integrated subchain called Sapphire or SFRX. SFRX was devised to be dual mineable with EGEM (ethash) using blake2s. While the original idea of Sapphire was to harness the power of a relationship with the parent chain (EGEM) on a per block basis and store data on chain, I realized fairly quickly that we needed some more immediate market appeal. All the while I knew because of a previous project that this relationship would eventually prove valuable. So, we will get back to that relationship and its use when in production and show the long-term value proposition of EGEM and Sapphire as a mate. The initial coming out of the gate benefit of this is enhanced 51% protection with the pair. EGEM also uses Pirl guard natively to protect against this type of an attack, so that is why I say "enhanced." For early adopters of EGEM I added an airdrop at block 1530000 of 2 SFRX to 1 EGEM to get some market proliferation.

I added a DEX - a TRUE Decentralized Exchange - to Sapphire. Sapphire blocks support something other chains do not... the accounts support multiple currencies native to the chain. (yes someone can ICO and even make it mineable but we can talk about that later) Therefore a transaction from one party to another party does not just contain an amount of value it also contains a ticker much like an exchange. Unlike an exchange (except maybe for platforms like bitshares) the transactions are posted on the blockchain. Well, the hurdle here was to have a one source wallet, because I agree with ease of use. Crypto is fantastic for a software engineer or technical tinker party like a gamer, but can your grandma eventually learn to use it with a private key? What about when she wants to buy 2 coins? So, I always liked the Ethereum platform basics and EGEM was built from that so I started with the EGEM (and Ethereum clone) wallet. You use this wallet for sapphire. I use the EGEM Wallet to move funds on sapphire and any EGEM (or even an ETH) account would work for this purpose. Since EGEM is supported on Trezor and Ledger hardware wallets you may use your device to unlock the account but transfer of funds at this time requires use of a Sapphire wallet in conjunction with your devices. Everything happens on the client state just like an offline transaction and you post signed transactions to the chain. This is just basic crypto stuff. In the Sapphire version of the new Opal wallet (which is called OpalGem) there is a panel for a dex. There is a panel for sapphire balances that would look like an exchange backend account, and there is a panel for EGEM on EGEM.

So, I had no problem getting funds to transfer and prove the transaction in a Patricia Merkle Trie set up like Eth does. There are still some finishing touches in this area for speed and reliability at go time. But then I started working on how to get bitcoin and other currencies onto the Sapphire platform. I began working toward the Lightning Network protocols and Hash Time Lock Contract payment channels, etc. I soon devised a bitcoin wallet that is native to your Sapphire Opal Gem wallet and allows you to use it with the EGEM account. An easy way to say this is that when you unlock the account with an EGEM private key there is a bitcoin address derived from it that you also control, in fact there are 2. I tinkered with creating an HTLC and combinations of stored unspent transaction outputs where you end up rewriting the destination or using a secret. The idea was that using this approach you could "deposit" BTC (or other similar coins) into your EGEM Sapphire derived BTC address as an HTLC and trade the unspents on the exchange with the whole redeem script idea and you guys know the Alice and Bob scenarios if you are a LN fan. Quick note: if I require the owner of the funds to be online during the trade time I could stop here because I already solved that puzzle, but we want to be able to post a trade and walk away… so thus it became a little more complex. We also control the keys for these “deposits” in such a way that if can be proven to the trustless environment during this transaction cycle. I got this to work in a creative way with a pairing of USTXO in a function that rewrote the unposted pair for a new destination over and over but keep in mind how many fees are involved and what if someone divides your bitcoin? Now you are rewriting multiple unspents…and it works but its sloppy, onerous, complex…but necessary. Inevitably we are going to end up dealing with this scenario on chain so consider the work in this part of my solution added to what I describe below. As satoshis are broken up into other transactions what we end up with is a fee being assessed to the “first withdrawal” at which time a signed transaction has to be posted to the chain. Until that moment we have the capability of producing a lot of scenarios using our confirmed funds in an address we control. For the rest of this post I am going to focus on this part of the equation, because that also became the trick – how to generate this address and control it while also keeping a level of not owning it for transfers sake in the equation. My solution to bitcoin transfers quickly became one of two things – store and trade unspents in HTLC and payment channels or trade the address and accounts that held confirmed unspents. In either scenario when a user needs to withdraw from the sapphire controlled environment there is a posting to the chain and a fee. Provided a user holds their funds in the sapphire deposit situation, even though those funds are proven and confirmed on the BTC chain, we can avoid posting unspents back to the chain and even can work with accounts like as in bitcoin core. There is, however, one other way to do this and that is to break up the deposit into several smaller receiving addresses and to use those smaller collective amounts of satoshis as a group. Remember, we are dealing with software here – this part is easy. So, as with anything the solution to this problem is to think ahead.

Now, keep in mind my end goal was not to create new nodes on another network, as we already have nodes on EGEM and Sapphire. So I already have our own "network" and we are shooting for a 4 to 6 second blocktime which has been near impossible. But it is fast. So this is where I get a "5 second bitcoin" from. Bitcoin is just the long pole in the tent. Everything transfers in "5 seconds" - or more appropriately as fast as we can make sapphire stable. The goal is 5 seconds and that keeps up in testing right now. I use bitcoin as an example because if bitcoin works then everything should work. What is the actual goal?

Deposit bitcoin onto sapphire in such a way that you hold the keys, but can trade it or send it on sapphire and the end destination can pull those BTC anywhere they want verifying that they alone now own the keys….in the standard Sapphire transfer time of “5 seconds” and while remaining decentralized trustless with proven transactions
Regardless, there is still the initial transfer to a wallet we can prove holds the funds in a decentralized trust method on Sapphire. So, the first thirty minutes is existent.  It is after that where I want to either post it as a trade or send it to another sapphire recipient and for that destination to have the option on what to do with the bitcoin because they now control it and I do not and can prove that. The withdrawal can, depending upon how its done, be transaction fee free and take little time OR will take the same 30 minutes because it requires a posting to the chain. Remember we are calculating this in advance by dividing our “deposit” (which is just a transaction) into small tradeable amounts each in an address we control (but in this case in such a way that we can transfer it).
I searched long and hard for a way to post a secret on a public space (on chain) and have it be proven out somehow. Even ETH contracts do not have a private data section where this is possible. Yet I did figure out that a node can provide a secret area of memory if it is not on that node. Therefore, I devised, and then subsequently tested, a way for nodes to host “secret safes” for accounts. They have to be encrypted and formed in memory that cannot be dumped to get at the contents so that means even during the creation cycle. The key is to have those secret safes operate much like an on chain contract where you can control what’s in it and actions out of it (such as sign a transaction that proves ownership) but do not actually have the physical private ley in hand for one reason – you want to be able to transfer that ownership to someone else. Yet, having your EGEM and Sapphire BTC accounts embedded in that relationship in such a way that you can actually sign transaction with those accounts private keys that translate to a signed transaction inside the secret safe – which can then be posted publicly to the chain. The result is a signed transaction from the wallet holding the funds that proves you own the wallet. Anyone looking at the open source implementation on how this is done will see you have no way of extracting the private key to that account but that you have complete control to use it – albeit in conjunction with an on chain transaction if you so choose. They will see that account ownership is proved on chain. They will see that if you send in the right signed transaction to transfer ownership that the new owner has ben transferred control and you do not have it anymore. You can prove it. And of course, an end recipient can eventually use WIF or some other method to import that private key into their own account as a withdrawal thus avoiding an exit fee – or they can simply exit to an exchange or outside bitcoin wallet and spend a fee for that final spend as is customary on bitcoin.

Typical of any systems engineer I broke these things down into steps and made each step work before stating I could do it. As a RELATIONAL DATABSE information systems engineer, I approached crypto as a step by step procedure for getting data to be secured in my online ledger database (the chain) and procedurally update to secure my end result. I got the peer node to send me my first live bitcoin address in one of these transactions today. There is still some work left to do but I will be presenting a video evidence soon (within a week of this post I would say). What I will show is a deposit to one of those BTC addresses that then is transferred on the network and offloaded to a wallet. On testnet of course.
Please feel free to get excited, comment positively or negatively, mock me, get skeptical, or whatever. I believe I outlined all the concepts you would need to prove what I am doing above.

Some updates on the chain in general…

The sapphire chain is holding stable in my recent tests with the internal team and starting to scale. There are a couple use cases that need to be enforced on the weighted sync and hash confirmation of other peers / nodes running code. The exchange protocol works well for buy side orders placed after a sell has posted (either in the current or previous blocks) and I am currently replicating the logic from the buy side order processing. Orders process on the chain from the db. This may prove to be a weakness at scale, but it has not proven so when testing a lot of traffic in our dev shop so far. Visual design needs to catch up with functional. The mobile app worked (and I posted shots on our discord) for sending of txs from one use to another using a cellphone connected directly to a node. There are half a dozen other small items but the chain is looking beautiful and works.
I am looking for support to take this to the next level. The easiest way to participate is to get into EGEM at our EGEM discord posted on the front page (or at egem.io). I will post on the EGEM ANN the information about how we work in conjunction with EGEM and SFRX chain and the benefits of this relationship soon. That is really something not to miss.

Please don’t hold it against me if it takes me a minute to reply to a post on here… I am aggressively finishing the development of this product. You can find me on twitter or on the EGEM discord or someone will track me down to reply if you do.

You should recieve them unless you had EGEM at exchange.

I am not seeing them on myegemwallet.com
do I have to add a custom token? what are the Token Contract Address, Token Symbol and Decimals?

Sapphire is not a token it is a coin on its own chain. It is also not launched yet, we only did the snapshot for the airdrop.

You can use this link, place your egem address in the top right, and it will give you a sapphire balance you can expect at launch.

on the https://myegemwallet.com I do not see the airdropped token
do I have to add a custom myself?

the token list https://explorer.egem.io/token should be updated too, right?

We only took the snapshot at this time. When the subchain is made public, first in a testnet capacity, you will be able to view your coins and use them. We will make announcements again to this regard.

How is EGem different than ethereum apart from few basic changes.
I want to know what exactly do you plan to achieve.

If its just about speed then there are a lot of other networks like EOS, Tron which can achieve the same.
If its just about a different skin of Ether then it makes no sense.
Ethereum also has a list of plans to make a move towards POS, along with addressing the scalability issue. If they are successful then there wont be any need for EGem.

Just curious about why are people supporting this project.
Looks like a lot of shilling going on in twitter for the same.

...and quite the opposite of a "lot of shilling" EGEM almost made a "non announcement" of the recent airdrop of SFRX 2:1 to all EGEM holders because it EGEM community is tight knit since day one and it was based to reward on participation in the initial chain build. If you happen to be on tweets related to EGEM you might want to consider yourself fortunate to be following someone that at least is into real POW crypto. The entire team came from another coin project and has not advertised at all except grass roots to active participants. Case in point, an airdrop is a major marketing move for shilled coins and I don't even think a single reddit post was made in advance of the airdrop. The team came from a previous ethereum based POW project and a community that values working on this type of chain as a base, and has made significant enhancements on that open source stack that are coming out on this integrated subchain. Meanwhile the information on Twitter has been to a direct audience and in conjunction with podcasts and conference attendance or even private dev meetings with a need to reach that direct audience. Besides I think you are also overlooking the fact that there was no pre mine or ICO on this fair launch POW eth chain which is a direct improvement over those exact activities on Ethereum.

All that being said, team EGEM developers (at least myself for certain as I am one of them) are extremely appreciative of the ETH codebase and philosophy and have decided to improve on that function in their own way. Initially, yes, this means only a difficulty adjustment and faster block time with a removal of the premine and presale funds, lowering the uncle reward, and a fair launch mining situation. But, secondly an extension to that base of a retrofit "quarrynode" was placed into the community to support network growth. Finally that base is being enhanced with a multi currency wallet and additional related chain (our integrated subchain sapphire) that improves the way the entire ecosystem interacts with the stable core. Sapphire is original code from the ground up that incorperates some new connection protocols for peers (based on other open source projects which will be acredited in the code) and unique approach to mining and node expansion. Sapphire is also independently mined with a dofferent algorithm than the main chain and is designed to accommodate dual mining expansion of the EGEM ecosystem in general. These activities take EGEM into its own direction and hopefully provide a new block chain open source base for thee communities to learn from and explore further enhancements to the crypto community down the road.

tldr: I don't think its shilling as much as you are following someone related to the great EGEM project on twitter :-D

final: hope to see you there in our discord :-D
