Lots of news announcements planned and stuff coming up.

That also includes new Viacoin Core versions. Maybe even 2 new Viacoin Core versions this year.
Possibly 2 versions before the summer ends and more.

How can you help speeding up the process?
If you can't code to help us, consider donating to https://viacoin.org

We raised $950 in March which helped a lot.
This month, for now we only raised $150.

And yes every donation helps. Past months we paid a lot out of our own pocket.

consider reading the Viacoin twitter account?

Is there any 2019 road map? After seeing the last drop in price I decided to look a bit more in depth I to this project to see if anything. Now I know Romano justified the lack of updated on the github lately but I'd like to know why isn't the website and the roadmap isn't updated to 2019 and also ask if there is any major news or partner ship coming on ? Thank you
Oh I almost never update the website. Lack of github commits ON MY OWN GITHUB ACCOUNT this month is just because of me being sick.

That roadmap we published originally was way way smaller. We added more things to the map. Things that we came up this year with and for example that I finished within a few weeks or days.
Or improving an app/wallet etc self is not on the roadmap.

I actually think that roadmaps are old fashioned. The industry moves so fast, coming up with new ideas & finishing quickly is doable for me & adding it to the roadmap is confusing because people tend to not see the new roadmap item add.

Things that are difficult from the roadmap is Schnorr, MAST and smartcontracts.

For the rest, everything is doable. (I should update the website more often)

Revisiting the Website https://viacoin.org I found it's stuck "Loading" in Chrome and IE11 but not Edge. Now that's a first!
Needs to be fixed. Your addblocker is blocking coinmarket.
We use their api on the website.

Hi Romano, I'm Interested in checking-out v3.3.4.1 but the signed checksum message isn't verifying (like when I verified v3.3.2.1 by copying the entire message with signature to via.asc then using Kleopatra to Decrypt/Verify).

Instead this time It's coming back with the following error:
via.asc-->via: Invalid signature
With Certificate: FB5B BA3A 16BC 6AF0 D2A2 1D61 3F92 368F 0D21 A206
The signature is invalid: Bad signature.

However the checksum for the portable version I'm interested in trying is checking-out so I'm sure it's fine, I'm just a bit cautious.

I may have messed up with my keys or something. Will check if there's something wrong with my PGP.
These are the correct hashes

For anyone who's interested in donating: https://viacoin.org/donate/

I always received lots of messages with people wanting to donate or ask what they can do for viacoin.
So I made a donation page.

I don't expect much donations or any donations at all actually.
It was already posted in the Viacoin telegram room with 3000+ members delivering a mind shattering $16.
It was like 16 more than expected !

Send you 76.78471634 VIA.
Send 0.1ETH done
Thank you!

Merged mining for Viacoin is not only providing a secure hashrate, but in my view it also brings sustainability and a fair market price.
Mining, or merged mining, does not make sense at the moment.
When, mining leads to unprofitable rewards for miners, it is hard to convince them to keep mining.
It's not unprofitable. You clearly don't understand it yet.
They can mine any Scrypt coin and Viacoin for free as bonus.

Lots of mining pools do this. Like F2pool and litecoinpool.org
Both mine litecoin and Viacoin at the same time. They won't stop because they get the Viacoins as bonus. Hence the high hashrate. The hashrate doesn't lie. The hashrate of Viacoin up/down moves is similar to that from litecoin. When litecoin hashrate is high, so is that from Viacoin.

Are you planning to keep it always PoW or there's a plan to use another consesus ? I understand that you're pretty happy with PoW right now, but maybe in the future....
Not planning to switch to something other than Auxiliary PoW. I know a lot of coins jump quick to the POS or DPos hypetrain for that "pump". However Viacoin keeps living on. That's why it has been staying alive since 2014.

New Vialectrum version released !

https://github.com/viacoin/vialectrum/releases/latest

Hodler's Edition (January 21, 2019)

 * Fix Qt history export bug
 * Improve network timeouts
 * Prepend server transaction_broadcast error messages with
   explanatory message. Render error messages as plain text.
 * The network layer has been rewritten using asyncio and aiorpcx.
   In addition to easier maintenance, this makes the client
   more robust against misbehaving servers.
 * The minimum python version was increased to 3.6
 * The blockchain headers and fork handling logic has been generalized.
   Clients by default now follow chain based on most work, not length.
 * New wallet creation defaults to native segwit (bech32).
 * Segwit 2FA: TrustedCoin now supports native segwit p2wsh
   two-factor wallets.
 * RBF batching (opt-in): If the wallet has an unconfirmed RBF
   transaction, new payments will be added to that transaction,
   instead of creating new transactions.
 * fix viacoin URI handling when app already running (#4796)
 * Qt listings rewritten:
   the History tab now uses QAbstractItemModel, the other tabs use
   QStandardItemModel. Performance should be better for large wallets.
 * Several other minor bugfixes and usability improvements.
 * Revealer: the PRNG used has been changed (#4649)
 * Fix DNS resolution on Windows
 * Fix websocket bug in daemon

Hi,

can someone help me? I have the Viaelectrum Wallet 3.2.2 but it didnt Sync/Connect.

I have changed the Server in the Network settings but didnīt Work.

New Servers? Wallet Update?

Can someone help?
Already fixed everything yesterday. Check if you are running the latest vialectrum version.
It took me 2 entire days to fix the server side issues & create a new client with extra features.

So there's a new vialectrum client coming out soon.

V3.3.2 works like a charm. Transfers so quickly too! (I tested the portable version).

Only issue(s) observed, "View on block explorer" directs to a 404 page on Blockchair, and the Windows shortcut displays an "L" not "V" like the earlier versions.

Thanks much Romano, your effort is truly appreciated.

Oh I knew I forgot something. I will fix the Blockexplorer links!

Hey Romano, sorry to derail, but curious if there was there ever a "post mortem" of what happened with XCH (clearinghouse) / Btcdrak, is that Via project alive/dead? I have always been super pissed and felt scammed, with btcdrak collecting 400+btc in 2014 and then riding off into the sunset pretty much without much warning or even much minimal maintenance of the project. I invested pretty heavily knowing he was a "core dev", so I figured less downside risk (at least compared to most crypto projects). I don't have access to my coins anymore, and don't have much expectation at this point, but am still stunned and trying to figure out what went wrong as that seemed like such a strong investment at the time.

At one point I think I heard you got the remaining dev funds and were going to bring the project back, but my memory is fuzzy Huh
No remaining funds except a few thousand bucks to host servers and hire some people (those are already used)
Clearing House is not coming back because I think it's not worth the time and effort. If anyone wants to bring it back, feel free to do so. Doubt exchanges will list it again anyways (especially with the listing funds these days)

Great that Coinzark added Viacoin.

Definitely going to try it soon.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Also the Viacoin team updated the roadmap.

Lightning network is almost ready now !


As I`m not fully aware of lightening network details, isn`t it activated and already running as for now?
Or are we waiting for it`s implementation for the next year?
Just like with Bitcoin, you can use the lightning network for Viacoin right now. C-lightning or Eclair wallet. Can be found on github.

The reason people don't use it yet (same for bitcoin) it will require people to understand it first a bit before using it. It needs some time.

Do you think that those wallets will enable multi currency support plus atomic swaps? As far as decentralization goes, it would be perfect (for coins which share the same codebase)
Not sure about lightning wallets with atomic swap.

But I am working privately on my own github account on an Atomic Swap for altcoins (just like the decred one) but without the need for participants to run a (full) node/wallet of the coins at all.

People on twitter are excited about that. Because without the need for a wallet/node (rpc) has never been done.

You can now anonymously swap Viacoin with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Monero, Dash, Zcash, Zcoin, Dogecoin, DigiByte, Vertcoin, Monacoin, Groestlcoin, Feathercoin, Reddcoin, Blackcoin, Peercoin and Ravencoin on www.coinzark.com.

This exchange used to be named Vertpig made by one of the Vertcoin devs. (Unsure if that dev is still on the vertcoin team. But it's still cool that they listed Viacoin
