does auroracoin have CVE-2018–17144 vulnerability?


No, it does not. AUR's code does not contain the code that caused the vulnerability.

We the members of the Auroracoin Foundation have seen during the past 3-4 years that the crypto community in Iceland has not been ready to group behind Auroracoin’s flag as everyone in this space has their own ideas of what coin/tech is the best. To get more people involved in crypto in Iceland we thought that a broader community for all cryptocurrencies and blockchains might attract more people to the cause. We started to reach out to the people involved in blockchain/crypto here in Iceland and offered to change the Auroracoin foundation to the Icelandic Blockchain Foundation (IBF).

The challenge of making Auroracoin go mainstream in Iceland is in general the same as for all cryptocurrencies and blockchains. We need to get more people involved and get laws and regulatory issues out of the way before crypto/blockchain/auroracoin goes mainstream.

After the re-branding we have gathered together a very strong group of able people who are working hard to form this foundation in a proper manner. The IBF has 7 elected board members who are voted in annually. The board members meet every month and have hired a CEO of the foundation. The foundation is establishing committees for each field in this space like mining, education, pr/marketing, blockchain, trading etc. and has a separate committee just for Auroracoin.

Since the establishment of IBF the foundation has held bimonthly meetups for anyone interested. The last 2-3 meetups have had speakers talk about various crypto/blockchain topics and the turnout has been great ca. 100 new individuals have shown up to each meetup.

IBF was asked to give testimony before the Icelandic Parliament, Economic Affairs and Trade Committee, this summer and to give feedback on new legislation which adds cryptocurrency exchanges and operators of digital wallets under Icelandic laws on anti-money laundering. Our feedback was welcomed and well received. Note that the Icelandic cryptocurrency exchange https://isx.is/ is now a regulated entity by the Icelandic Financial Supervisory Authority.

Our next goal is to influence further legislation and hopefully advice the government on crypto and blockchain technology. Other goals the IBF has set is to focus on educating individuals, companies and government agencies in Iceland on cryptocurrencies / blockchains.

Merchant adoption will follow when more and more people become involved and I’m sure the biggest beneficiary of this will be Auroracoin, since it is traded on https://isx.is/ and people here are familiar with it. Auroracoin will always be mentioned when we talk to people about crypto since it is such a big part of the crypto history in Iceland and hopefully we will get people to use it just as any other crypto or fiat currency.

To finance these operations the Auroracoin Foundation / IBF sold a big part of the M1 fund a few months back. The funds have been used for the re-branding, salaries for the CEO, meetups, office expense and events here in Iceland and will financially secure future operations of the foundation.

It is our hope that the work we are doing and the means we have chosen to use the funds will have the greatest impact for the greater good of crypto/blockchain and Auroracoin in Iceland.

So the foundation:
  • Ditched the Auroracoin brand
  • Sold the vast majority its Auroracoins
  • Repurposed the proceeds to fund things not directly related to the coin

Let's face it. You guys abandoned the project.

Hey guys.

Im happy to see the Auroracoin team evolve but the lack of communication really damages peoples faith in you.

I feel like you could have let people know you were going to liquidate before the event.

None the less its not a problem as it means you have less influence now.

More Auroracoins still sit outside of Iceland than in and its the international market that sustains the price which is why Ive emphasised the role of international investors when the team was so hard headed about it being hermetically sealed in Iceland.

To the point wherwe you disabled the Auroracion app in South Africa because I was getting people interested in the coin.

You guys need to admit that your decision making has lacked coordination.

Its still not a problem though because Aurorcoins survival doesnt depend on you.

You failed to mention that the mining power behind Auroracoin is at an all time high.

We dont need icelanders to "rally" behind the coin. We need Icelandic mines to point their hardware at auroracoin.

What is being done to get Icelandic miners to mine Auroracoin?

Surely this will be a major objective for the IBF or do people think they are better off mining ethereum?

During the last 3-4 years I think only one person in Iceland has shown interest to help the Auroracoin cause. Excluding this one person no one else has reached out and asked what can I do to help Auroracoin.

Since the re-branding we have hundreds of people showing interest in crypto in Iceland. We are rallying them together under one banner to solve the 3 major problems the Auroracoin foundation aimed to resolve.

  • Resolve the issue of legality of crypto in Iceland
  • Educate people on crypto in general
  • Get merchant adoption of crypto going in Iceland

These 3 tasks have always been the major goals of the Auroracoin foundation and are now the goals of the IBF.

Took me a while to admit to myself but I came to the same conclusion. Unfortunately I cannot see what upsides AUR would have towards other coins like say BCH, DASH, ETH, XMR in the context of Iceland, neither for the potential people using those nor for the Cryptocurrency Foundation: I don't think many Icelanders claimed their AUR (I asume the claims were fraudulent to a large percentage) and if they did they turned around quickly and sold them. Another upside could be AUR being the sole coin traded on isx exchange, but I'm guessing this will change pretty soon?

For me the Auroracoin Project was an experiment to see if an airdrop to a geographically isolated population based on "one head one coin" could work to popularize the coin and get people to use it as money.

AUR was the most promising experiment in this direction as far as I know and I'm quite sad to see it finally fail. Some valuable lessons were learned.

It's been a fun, entertaining and educating ride and I thank everyone involved in the project, especially the people in Iceland doing real work. Thank you.

There's still some possibility the coin will survive in some meaningful way, but hope is getting thin... I can see how a shift of focus makes sense. The use of AUR funds given from premine may be questinable, but in the end: who cares...

To be clear we have not abandoned the project.  If anyone has abandoned the project it would be the Icelanders that claimed their coins in 2014 and either sold the coins or have simply waited for other people to get involved without personally getting involved or contributing in any significant manner.

1.  The Auroracoin brand has clearly not been ditched.  Whatever that means.

2.  Yes, 80% of the Auroracoin holdings were sold to fund the Icelandic Blockchain Foundation, of which Auroracoin is a significant interest.  Aside from the CEO salary, none of the proceeds (ever) went to individuals or team members.

3.  Yes, as explained the funds were repurposed but it is not accurate to say these uses are not directly related to the coin.  

This decision to found the Icelandic Blockchain Foundation, maintaining Auroracoin as a primary working group within the Foundation ,
has done wonders for the legitimacy and objectivity within and without the foundation.  Especially in developer and legislative circles.

While your comments are well-founded and welcome they do not represent the reality of the situation.

If you would like to participate we would welcome your contributions.

Hey Adamastor,

Thanks again for your input.  Yes, perhaps there could have been more communication... but then again, it probably was better to not announce the sale of the coins as so not to initiate an unwarranted panic within the space.

There are still 20% of the funds available - and those that were sold have been put to an extremely worthwhile cause.

Think about it.... Of all the things Auroracoin has accomplished, we can now add that it has funded the premier Blockchain Advocacy group within the nation of Iceland.

I was just in the offices a few days ago, just dropping in for a chat, and was cut short due to a meeting with a member of the national parliament.

This kind of objective exposure has done wonders for the legitimacy of Auroracoin within the tech community and various stakeholder communities as a whole.

We recognize that the majority of coins exist outside of Iceland and I, for one personally, have been working on building merchants, online retailers, and tourist destinations to accept auroracoins.... this is simply a long road that we are on, however one in which has shot up in exposure.

Yes, mining has been on the rise - again, I have been noticing this and it is part of active discussions we are having.

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

Lets touch base some more in a PM - I sent you a message.

Who cares ?   We care Smiley

Well, no one can say that you have not played an important role in the project.
 Thanks for keeping your Abe explorer up for all this time and providing airdrop statistics.

I think the thing is that many people have come to the conclusion that mass airdrops,
 in general, only lead to quick sell offs....  At this point though the debate is moot for Auroracoin.

However, Auroracoin has not failed... we are still working, growing and yes, pivoting (vertically) from our lessons.

New merchants are still being added and new relationships are being forged.  Again, on the scale of a tiny north atlantic nation.

I can say with 100% certainty that this idea to found the Icelandic Blockchain Foundation
 has been phenomenal in regards to Auroracoin legitimacy.  There is no longer a sense of "hidden agendas" due to the objective nature of the group.

We have seen a tenfold increase in local interest, and generally people have been
pleasantly surprised to find out that Auroracoin is still contending quite well, respectively speaking.

So keep those fingers crossed and keep an eye out for further developments.

Thanks mike I replied.

The team blocked access to the app to the entire country of South Africa because of their problems with me.

This is discrimination at its worst. Its punitive. Its almost sabotage from within.

Please allow south africans access to the app your decision to ban us looks immature and nothing more but a cheap reaction to display your power.

this decision shows that you have little good will for the ideals of crypto currency. Decentralisation and freedom of expression was destroyed when you banned an entire country from using your app.

Im disgusted but plead with you to reverse your decision.

This is good to hear ;-).

Sorry for sounding so negative before. I had been keeping my hopes up for AUR (and still do now) and had a temporary lapse of faith. I'm not talking about the value of my bag here (I decided long ago (and still stick to that decision) to go down holding that bag even if the ship sinks to the ground), and I hope that came across over time. My plan is to some day spend my AUR in Iceland. Either by buying a nice power plant or by buying a couple of beers, depending on where things go with Auroracoin.

Well, no one can say that you have not played an important role in the project.

Thanks for keeping your Abe explorer up for all this time and providing airdrop statistics.

"important" is an overstatement, but I am happy to play a small part and it is fun.

I've been running explorer.auroracoin.eu, been helping to keep the market "stable", been mining (at a loss) when we had the pool hopping troubles before multi-algo, tried to help a tiny bit with the code when I found issues and I've also been telling people IRL about the Auroracoin experiment here in germany. I always promote AUR as a "buy" when people ask me what altcoin they should get ;-).

I would love to help adoption in Iceland somehow, but that's hard to do from outside the country.

10-fold increase? How did you measure that and in what timeframe did that occur?

So keep those fingers crossed and keep an eye out for further developments.

Ironic as we have made some progress here with establishing a new group within the Icelandic Blockchain Foundation.

and ironic that auroracoin has brought so much to iceland, including funding the IBF, and we just havent found our voice yet.

   which is why I have been building the auroracoin101 brand and signing up merchants and working with the dev and coin team.

===  for example, got a new merchant yesterday officially on board,   https://auroracoin101.is/merchants,  Bio Borgari  Organic Burgers.

   We will also be building a merchant signup campaign from our recent merchant experiences...  market materials are being prepared, as well as merchant signage / brochures.

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

Well, i guess we will see where the price lands on ISX.is in Iceland.   There was always arbitrage going on with Bittrex,   so yobit and cryptopia will take over a bit, i suppose.

I guess in many ways the cheap prices will continue again until we start driving coin demand here in Iceland.

just trying to find the best way to offer a 10 or 20 % discount when paying with merchants.   there are some ideas.

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

However, in my mind, as one of the top auroracoin advocates, contributor, and also founder of auroracoin101.is

 the most important thing to do is to find our landing place with IBF and continue with current plans.


We expect a room full of attendees showing up Thursday, Oct 11, at the next IBF meetup...

   with Auroracoin being discussed and team recruiting and building.
