Hi all, I have been inactive since a year or more. Nice to see our SmartCoin is still alive and my logo of SmartCoin is still in use. Im still holding my old farmed and bought SmartCoins. I will keep an eye on it. If help is needed, just send me a pm.



@Mjbmonetarymetals made the logo(s)... is this a new forum account?


No

Any updates? Im holding a few SMCs but it seems to be dead.


if you think SmartCoin is dead why not sell ? why keep holding ?


SmartCoin could have been a great coin in my view, if only there had been more active development. I don't fully understand why the lead dev should want to park SmartCoin to go and focus on dogecoin.

Why the price movement,  isn't this coin pretty much an abandoned project at this point.  Huh

Strong original x11 POW chain.
Dev has maintained website, blockE, and wallets since day one.
Active market trade for years.

Flashy crashy nope.

Just a dead boring quality decentralized product.

Quote from HEAT's first medium post:

HEAT has a little to lose and a lot to gain in the next months. Starting in Jan- Feb, the overdue technical updates and co-operation releases include:

mobile wallet
EUR gateway(s)
major ITO launches on HEAT (funding in HEAT / BTC / EUR /ETH)
smart vouchers
company options and shares sale
We got the following message from one of the coolest HEAT fans on facebook:

?HEAT

Sleeping giant in 2017
Awaken giant in 2018?

We take this as an omen. You might want to do likewise!

We?d like to thank the Heat Ledger Ltd staff and contracted acquaintances for a very exciting and progressive 2017, and extraordinarily fantastic 2018:

Why does the main heat site only list svante and Dennis this gives the impression you guys are running heat out of your mum's basement, ok you might operate out of home office's could the main site be updated with the current team hopefully not a long list of anons like beefy213, and sumowedgie but real people,

Also the site looks a bit clunky and outdated with all the different backgrounds overlaid and the big icons. Is it possible the site could be overhauled in the not too distant future just toned down to look slick and trustworthy (eg. ark, waves, vechain), simple refined with some graphics but a less is more approach.

Some say 2018 will be the year of the "platform", maybe Heat should be recognised as a platform too rather than just a simple token.
Exactly, so we're well prepared already by being ahead of our time.

HEAT = H.E.A.T. Ledger = HEAT Platform = a LOT of stuff in addition to the coin, most of which is focused one at a time when appropriate. Of these we're still wrapping up one of the largest building blocks for the platform, being the EUR integration and its intertwined legally compliant ITO (funded by BTC, EUR, HEAT, Eth..) infrastructure.


Would it be possible for you and Dennis to do a Google Hangout or u-tube video just a brief overview of 2017 and rundown for 2018 . Nothing fancy no revolutionary announcements necessary even if you cover what's already in the roadmap simply a chance to get to know you two guys a little more.

When I sign into my HEAT wallet with my user name and secret phrase and 4 digit pin it shows no balance and no transaction history. The long number at the top left hand corner under "(no name)" does not match any number I have written down either.
Is there something I'm missing?
Maybe you're inputting the secret phrase incorrectly - start over and double check it, if you are copy and pasting it make sure there isn't an extra space at the start.

Hi,

I'd like to address some questions about the specifics of the `2000 tps` test.

Lets start with the specs of the PC mentioned before, the one on which the test was performed;

This would be my daily work horse PC:

   OS: Ubuntu 16.x
   RAM: 16GB
   CPU: Intel Core i5
   HD: 500GB SSD

Now about the test setup.

The HEAT server tested actually runs in my Eclipse Java IDE, this as opposed to running running HEAT server from the command line (its own JVM).
Running in Eclipse IDE, and in our case in DEBUG mode is quite the limiting factor i've experienced.
Running HEAT from the command line does not have the burden of also having to run the full Eclipse Java IDE coding environment as well as who knows what Eclipse is doing with regards to breakpoints and all and being able to pauze execution and all.

We have not yet tested this while HEAT runs from the command line, I expect it to be quite faster in that case.

Now about the websocket client app.

With the help of our newly beloved AVRO binary encoding stack we have been able to generate, sign and store to a file our 500,000 transactions. This process takes a while, a few minutes at least. But I dont think this matters much since in a real-life situation with possibly 100,000s of users the cost of creating and signing the transactions is divided over all those users.

The client app was written in Java and opens a Websocket connection to the HEAT server, since both are running on the same machine we would use the localhost address.

Now you might say; "Hey! wait a minute. Isn't localhost really fast? Isn't that cheating?"

The short awnser.. "No! And you might fail to understand what's important here."

While its absolutely true that localhost is much faster than your average external network, what should be obvious here is what levels of bandwidth we are talking about. I suppose anyone reading this has downloaded a movie before, be that over torrent or maybe streamed from the network. Well there is your proof that testing this over localhost has zero meaning here.

Your PC while downloading a movie or the youtube server streaming to you and probably 1000s of others the most recent PewDiePie video will process MUCH MUCH more data than our little test here.

One transaction in binary form is about 120 bytes in size, times 2000 and you'll need a network that has to support 240KB data transferred a second. Not sure what internet connections are normal in your country, but it seems here in Holland we can get 400Mbit connections straight to our homes, talking about standard consumer speeds here (looked it up just now).

To put that in perspective, 240KB a second is about 1/200th the amount of bandwidth you get with your 400Mbit(50MB) connection. You should understand by now that the network is not the bottle neck, its the cryptocurrency server.



So whats so special about HEAT you might ask, why does HEAT what HEAT can do?

Well for that you'd have to dive into the source code of our competitors, be them Waves, Lisk, NEM, IOTA, NXT etc.. Just this afternoon I've taken a look at IOTA source code, which is something thats always interesting (did the same with the others mentioned).

But I can tell you right now that none of the other currencies (Waves, Lisk, NEM, IOTA, NXT etc) will be able to reach similar speeds as HEAT has now shown it can.

Why I can claim this is pretty simple.

Cryptocurrencies, all of them basically (blockchain or tangle makes no difference here), all follow a similar internal design. And all of them need to store their; balances, transactions, signatures, etc etc... and they all use different databases to do so.

Some like NXT use the most slowest of all solutions which is a full fledged SQL database, others have improved models optimized for higher speed in the form of key/value datastores. IOTA today i've learned uses rocksdb, Waves is on H2's key value store, Bitcoin is on leveldb etc.

Afaik HEAT is the only one that does not use a database. Instead we've modeled our data in such a way that it can be written to a Memory Mapped flat file, which is how we store blocks and transactions. Our balances are kept all in memory and to support on-disk persistence we use https://github.com/OpenHFT/Chronicle-Map as our memory/on-disk hybrid indexing solution.

If you'd look at ChronicleMap's website you'll see that they: "Chronicle Map provides in-memory access speeds, and supports ultra-low garbage collection. Chronicle Map can support the most demanding of applications." Oh and did I mention this grew from the needs of HFT trading systems be faster than anything else available?



Anyways..

The next test is gonna be even cooler. We'll be hosting the single HEAT instance which will be forging blocks on a nice and powerfull machine, much faster than my PC, probably something with 64GB RAM and perhaps some 32 or 64 cores.. My estimate is that we can push the TPS to much higher levels on such a server.

Right now we are adding binary AVRO encoding support to HEAT-SDK and after that we'll release one of those samples we used to do a month or so ago with which you can fire transactions from your browser to our test setup. I bet that'll be fun.

- Dennis

Bullish

Experimental fully-functional MAC OSX desktop wallet.

is there a wallet for mac or only win and linux? staking only possible with local wallet i guess, not the web version?

We have an experimental MAC OS build now!! Its fully functional including possibility of mining blocks.
We are in the process of obtaining official developer status and can thus not yet publish the wallet to the app store.

Please make sure that in order to run the HEAT server you need Java SDK version installed on your Mac.

To install Java SDK on your Mac look here http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html

No doubt in newer versions of OSX (which I dont have currently) there will be some warnings about the wallet not being officially signed, as said thats because we are still in the process of signing up in Apple's developer program.

Please report your findings and let us know if it works for you!

Thanks



Download MAC OSX Wallet here:
http s://github.com/Heat-Ledger-Ltd/heatwallet/releases/download/v2.2.0/Heatwallet_MacOS_2.2.0.EXPERIMENTAL.zip

Update - this time with working Cut/Copy/Paste
https://github.com/Heat-Ledger-Ltd/heatwallet/releases/download/v2.2.0/Heatwallet_MacOS_2.2.0.EXPERIMENTAL.CONTEXT-MENU-FIXED.zip

Is there a link to "how to mine heat" anywhere, thought I would give it a go tried start server which doesn't do anything I guess it isn't as simple as that.

I get why you went with the green color for this rebranding but other than the new color and some text you haven't really added anything major to the main logo. I've got to say that everything looks clean and was well designed, I really like the look of the paper wallets.

fair comment.
