WEEKLY UPDATE
11TH DECEMBER



Since STRAKS’ blockchain launch on the 20th November, more than 20,000 STRAKS addresses have been created. We are currently growing at an average rate close to an astonishing 1,000 STRAKS addresses per day! The Discord community is also growing at a rapid pace; more than 500 new members have joined the Discord community in the last week alone. STRAKS’ Discord community now features a total of over 2,500 members.

Last week a public round of BTC funding in exchange for discounted STRAKS was initiated. This was to cover the 2 BTC requirement for listing on Coinexchange.io. The demand proved to be far greater than initially anticipated and the 2 BTC target was covered in just 12 hours.

The community members Decker and BRob delivered some great contributions to STRAKS in the past week. BRob launched his support for STRAKS with his all-in one miner AIOMiner Alpha. Decker developed a Win32 STRAKS wallet client and announced that he is working on integrating and utilising STRAKS atomic swap functionality, to list the currency on BarterDEX’s decentralised exchange platform. We cannot thank them enough for their contribution in helping to make STRAKS a long-term success and we are encouraged and motivated by the continuously growing support in the community that we are seeing. We also want to take the opportunity to thank the community member Graev for allowing and offering STRAKS to utilise his McLaren for STRAKS advertising in January and we look forward to providing him with the creative assets necessary to enhance STRAKS’ external public image and awareness.


AIOMiner Alpha 6.3

BRob announced last week the launch of his all-in-one miner, AIOMiner Alpha 6.3, which supports a number of currencies besides STRAKS. It is an extensive expanding feature rich application, that gives you (the miner) greater flexibility over what you mine and when. It is built to help cater not only to the miner who wants more flexibility but also to help ease the transition into mining for newcomers.

To read more about his application and find out where it can be downloaded, please see the links provided below:

https://www.reddit.com/r/gpumining/comments/7i253o/we_are_proud_to_announce_our_first_community/

https://github.com/BobbyGR/AIOMiner/releases



STRAKS WIN32 WALLET

Decker, who also released the first updated yiimp code to support the new STRAKS protocol, has now also released a WIN32 client. Please find the details concerning the wallet download and its source code below;

Source Code: https://github.com/DeckerSU/straks/tree/dev-decker-win32
Release: https://github.com/DeckerSU/straks/releases/tag/1.14.5.1_win32



BarterDEX DECENTRALISED EXCHANGE

Last week on Bitcointalk Decker announced that he was working on adding STRAKS/KMD market to the new upcoming cryptocurrency exchange platform BarterDEX. It is a fully decentralised exchange platform powered by Atomic Swap. As of today, BarterDEX released a YouTube video showcasing the atomic swap feature in full action for STRAKS, thereby making it the first cryptocurrency in the world to utilise its atomic swap functionality on a decentralised cryptocurrency exchange platform.

The atomic swap feature has long been a hot topic in the cryptocurrency market, for what potential it may pose for the future. As the market grows, there is an enhanced need to find ways to make blockchains interact more seamlessly and rely less on third parties to process and handle the transactions. This gives you, the end-user, an enhanced control over the security of your funds. It is a perfect first real world showcase of STRAKS’ atomic swap functionality and we look forward to seeing the new exchange site launching in January.

Further information can be found on the links below. Do not forget to check out the YouTube video, showcasing the platform and STRAKS’ atomic swap functionality in full operation.

Help us spread the word. Give it a like and retweet: https://twitter.com/KomodoPlatform/status/940266912143069185



PUBLIC ROUND OF FUNDING

The public round of funding announced earlier last week, is still active, for another couple of hours. Through your BTC contribution, you are able to acquire STRAKS at a discounted rate for your investment. Although the target has been reached, you are still able to acquire STRAKS at the discounted rate, should you want to partake. It is based on pro-rata and any excess will be either refunded or at your discretion kept for later exchange site funding.

Please see full details concerning the funding and how to participate and acquire your STRAKS here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2433318.msg24921025#msg24921025



UPDATED YIIMP POOL CODE

A note to all pool-owners. Please take note that the Yiimp pool code has been updated and is available on now Github https://github.com/DalmationCadet/yiimp

The stratum code has been updated for Yiimp based pools in order to avoid transaction fee related block rejections.



STRAKS SWAP-BOT

The swap-bot launched and was announced across all communication channels on the 8th December. Although this may appear as a somewhat easy solution to develop for anyone who is not a developer, we can assure you that this was quite a big task. Often swaps are handled manually, but we wanted to make this as easy and user-friendly as possible. We took great care in developing the bot, to ensure it was bug-free and completely secure to use.



NETWORK MINING HASHRATE

We strongly encourage miners to distribute their hashrate away from Suprnova. Historically, they have held a dominating share of the network hashrate for STRAKS and this is already a key issue for many well established currencies, that hashing power is often too centralised. To combat this issue early on, before the hashrate starts rising, we highly recommend and encourage miners to select one of the many other pools available for STRAKS so as to decentralise the hashing power and reduce the associated risks (please find them in the original Bitcointalk announcement post above).



STRAKS CORE UPDATE

We strongly encourage everyone to update their clients to version 1.14.5.2 (latest) before the masternodes are scheduled to kick in after block height 50,400.

The STRAKS OSX wallet has just been updated as well, and is now ready for downloading here: https://github.com/straks/straks/releases/download/1.14.5.2/straks-1.14.5.2-osx.zip



NEW TEAM ROLE

As of today a new team role has been added and assigned on Discord. The new role is named MVCC, which stands for Most Valuable Community Contributors. We want to thank Decker for his ongoing hard work and support on a community level, in helping make STRAKS a long term success and he is therefore the first member to receive the MVCC role, as a token of appreciation for his hard work and contribution. This role has been created to clearly represent who in the community goes over and above the average contribution to making STRAKS a long-term success.



DESIGN BOUNTY CAMPAIGN

There is currently a 300 STRAKS bounty on the best design suggestion for the STRAKS branding for the McLaren in January. It is very important to us that this is top notch graphic work, so as to ensure that the brand is at always represented in the best possible light; as a professional competitive digital currency should be.

Full details concerning the Bounty Campaign can be found on our reddit page (do not forget to subscribe): https://www.reddit.com/r/STRAKSproject/comments/7ibydj/call_out_for_designers_300_straks_bounty_reward/



Your Sincerely,
The STRAKS Team









STRAKS WEEKLY UPDATE
4TH DECEMBER


EXCHANGE SITES

Among other exchange sites, STRAKS applied to YoBit shortly after the blockchain went live.  The initial strategy was to ensure that an exchange site with a relatively sizable trading volume, given its comparative listing fee, was available soon following launch. Due to the increased popularity of crypto-curreny in general, most exchange sites are understandably busy beyond their current capacity, which of course has an impact on normal expected listing times as well as the potential for getting listed in the first place. The strategic approach has therefore changed somewhat: to ensure that STRAKS is available across a wide selection of cryptocurrency exchange sites. Not only will this lead to enhanced accessibility of STRAKS and an increased brand awareness, this will also give the end-user (i.e. trader) more options for purchasing and selling STRAKS. We hope that in time, this approach will prove fruitful and have a positive impact on brand awareness, credibility and subsequently trading volume. Recent focus has been applied to researching potential exchange sites, shortlisting the potential candidates and approaching them to discuss and inquire about listing STRAKS. This will be an ongoing process to ensure that we maximise accessibility and brand awareness. While many exchange sites do have an official application process, some do not. These have been contacted directly through other means of communication and we are still waiting to hear back from a majority of these, for reasons stipulated earlier. Livecoin promptly replied that they are not listing any new assets until February due to an ongoing technical upgrade. Coinsmarket was quick to respond and list STRAKS and required no handling fees doing so either. We can of course not guarantee that STRAKS will become available across all the exchange sites that have been applied to or contacted, but we will always do our best to maximise STRAKS chances of listing. Some exchange sites are unfortunately still well beyond the budgetary capacity of STRAKS and may therefore not become an option until later in its lifecycle or if bigger donators should arrive earlier. A comprehensive list of the exchange sites applied to or contacted may be found below:

tradesatoshi
livecoin.net
stocks.exchange
Bitafex
YoBit
Litebit
Gate
kucoin
liqui
Exmo
allcoin
C-cex
aex
Coinegg
coinwale
alcurex
nlexch
coinsmarkets
Coinexchange
Cryptopia


STRAKS can currently be traded here: https://coinsmarkets.com/trade-BTC-STAK.htm#

We will do our best to ensure that STRAKS becomes available across more exchange sites in the near future and will communicate promptly when such should occur.



MASTERNODES

Masternodes rewards are scheduled to trigger relatively soon, however due to the unexpected delay in getting STRAKS listed on exchange sites, it has made the acquisition of STRAKS problematic beyond mining. Therefore acquiring the number of coins required to form a masternode is currently skewed in the favour of bigger miners, and contrary to our manifesto of promoting decentralization.  To create a more fair environment, we are currently evaluating and considering increasing the block height at which Masternode rewards will  be activated.  Once a conclusion has been made on the matter, the community will be notified across all STRAKS’ communication channels.



TEMPORARY WEBSITE

Bruno has developed a temporary website on the back of the website specifications and content requirements provided. It is available on our permanent address at; https://www.straks.io/

We are working on a much more extensive website, with a better design, layout and most importantly with more relevant content. For now it will suffice until a new and better website will become available.

The website will seek to cater to not only the community member and trader, but also to new potential business partners in the ecommerce sector. The content to help position STRAKS as firmly as possible as a competitive altcoin in the ecommerce sector, will therefore be crucial to the website build.



THE MARKETPLACE

The building of the specifications for the marketplace is currently underway and the technical requirements are being researched and initial specifications are being drafted. This is still a long way from launch, but in order to ensure that we adhere to the stated project timeline, a dedicated group of developers have been assigned to the Marketplace project.



THE SWAP BOT

To confirm, the swap bot is nearing completion.  The programming element is complete and we are undergoing some more comprehensive testing and minor tweaking.  We will be announcing the swap start and end date very soon.  Again, you will have 30 days to swap to STRAKS, to there is plenty of time for everyone to participate.



NEW TEAM MEMBER

A new member has been brought into the STRAKS family. Last week we welcomed Bruno onto the team as a web developer. Bruno has shown tremendous support and dedication on a community level and has proven himself over an extended period of time; that he is a capable web developer with a strong desire to help further the STRAKS brand. In the community he is known as the manager and creator of straks.news and recently also developed the temporary website for STRAKS. We are all confident that Bruno will add a lot of value to the STRAKS brand in the future to come and we hope that everyone in the community will give him a warm welcome to the team.



STRAKS CORE UPDATE - v1.14.5.1.

A new update for STRAKS has been released. This includes core updates to; masternode collateral reduction from 50,000 to 15,000, protocol version update and some minor wallet fixes. Please go to: https://github.com/straks/straks/releases and update your wallets accordingly (osx -wallet pending release).  Note, your masternode and chain validation will not work if you do not update.



Yours Sincerely,
The STRAKS Team


STRAKS WEEKLY UPDATE
27TH NOVEMBER 2017


The first day of mining far exceeded any expectations we had. The network hashrate, according to the official block explorer, topped over 700 Gh/s concurrently. With an approximate hashrate of 43 Mh/s p/s for a GTX1080, roughly 16,000 GPUs were pointed towards STRAKS on its first day of operation. We want to thank all miners for the great and warm reception STRAKS received. We will do everything in our power to realise in full the expectations that there are of cementing STRAKS as a sustainable real competitive ecommerce-centric digital currency.


YoBit Exchange Application

An application to YoBit was filed shortly after the chain went live. The application and listing fee (0.1 BTC) was submitted on Tuesday 21st November. YoBit official processing time states 4 - 7 business days for listing. STRAKS is therefore projected to launch on its first exchange this week, on condition that YoBit adheres to their stipulated timeline. YoBit was selected as the ideal exchange, due to its unique combination of a low listing fee and high trading volume, making it the most competitive offer on the market. At the time of writing it is the 25th highest ranked exchange in the world, based on 24/h trading volume (data from Coinmarketcap). As a sidenote to this, please be advised that we do not recommend anyone trading on any exchange sites listing STRAKS that are not officially endorsed by the STRAKS team. YoBit will by all accounts be the first officially STRAKS endorsed exchange.

Application has also been filed for listing on Cryptocompare. They make no mention of what processing time to expect, so the STRAKS team will keep checking and inform the community once it is listed. This should give traders more readily available market information, with the added benefit of making more people aware of STRAKS. Coinmarketcap requires first a recognised exchange site (which YoBit is) and a 24 hour trading volume of at least $10,000, before they will list a new currency. Once both of these requirements have been met, application will be filed. To help extend the reach and increase the brand awareness of STRAKS to the mining community, we will also apply to be listed at whattomine, once YoBit has STRAKS listed.


Bounty Payouts

Two bounties were paid for services rendered in the past week. Decker of Deckerpool was the first one who managed to update the Yiimp code to support STRAKS’ new protocol. To make the code open-source, Decker was approached and a bounty of 10,000 STRAKS was agreed and paid, after which the source code was made publicly available to everyone through github (https://github.com/DeckerSU/yiimp/tree/straks). Bruno, a community member who runs https://straks.news/, was paid 2,500 STRAKS for webhosting, running the community poll for the new brand name and for ancillary services.


The Masternode Collateral

The masternode collateral was previously communicated with a disclaimer that it was subject to change. Having analysed and evaluated the landscape thoroughly the masternode collateral has been lowered, so as to reduce the time it will take miners to acquire a masternode while also making the price more approachable upon launch, for acquisition. The adjusted masternode collateral is 15,000.


SegWit

Due to the unique combination of SegWit, treasury reward, miner reward and masternode payments, as of this writing, mining software and pools using Yiimp do not yet fully support STRAKS’ coinbasetx configuration. GPU mining is fully operational, but pool and/or mining software will need further code changes for SegWit blocks.


Block Explorer Tags

A minor change is noticeable on the official block explorer as more tags have been added to identify key addresses; Decker and Mining pools. Here you can also follow the developer funds and the treasury accounts, as these are tagged too.



We would like to thank all 7,300 STRAKS address holders for their support, and we look forward to realising the full potential of STRAKS in the coming years alongside the community.


Yours Sincerely,
The STRAKS Team





STRAKS
20th November Update


We are pleased to announce that STRAKS’ blockchain was launched just under a week ago, and is LIVE!  Delivered earlier than promised and hopefully you will agree, beyond expectations in terms of features and unique value proposition.  It has been a valiant effort by the STRAKS team, and we are very excited for the road ahead. We are looking forward to sharing each success with you; the STRAKS community; the STRAKS investors; the STRAKS miners; and of course, the supporters, voyeurs and “copy pasta” folk.

Transparency and fairness are core values to STRAKS and therefore we have embedded instamine protection until Block 10,080, which the chain will approach by Wednesday (22nd November).  Please refer to github or further below for exact details.   All blocks until this height will have a ZERO subsidy.  From Wednesday and ~20 years onwards, STRAKS mining will yield a constant block reward of 10 STAK with ~60 seconds intervals (block time). The instamine protection ensures that you have sufficient time to set up and direct your mining hardware to STRAKS, thereby being ready to mine the very first real block rewards this Wednesday.

STRAKS always seek to ensure that it is at the forefront of blockchain development. The latest and most popular technologies have therefore been implemented. Not only does this ensure that STRAKS is highly competitive from day 0, but most importantly that it will remain so long into the future. STRAKS is currently the most up to date masternode coin on the market. It is the first masternode enabled currency that is based off core Bitcoin Core 0.14.2.

Not only does STRAKS already have SegWit and SegWit2x enabled it is also effectively introducing SegWit4x; is Lightning Network compatible - supporting instant payments, scalability, low cost and cross blockchain transactions. STRAKS is able to process a significantly higher daily transaction volume than its peers, safeguarding the currency against rapid future growth without adversely impacting transaction times (see the comparison chart in the Bitcointalk ANN or on the official Github repository for further details).

The currency is Atomic Swap compatible. We think atomic swap is highly likely to become a popular and perhaps even a standardised feature in the future. STRAKS is therefore fully prepared and positioned for that eventuality, joining an exclusive list of digital currencies with atomic swap compatibility.

STRAKS hashing algorithm is Lyra2REv2, which is only minable with CPU/GPUs. STRAKS will always support a decentralised asic resistant blockchain and will update the hashing algorithm if this one day should no longer be the case.  Note, however, due to the unique combination of SegWit, treasury reward, miner reward and Masternode payments, as of this writing, mining software and pools do not yet support STRAKS' coinbasetxn configuration. The only way to mine STRAKS, right now, is via the STRAKS' wallet.  Please refer to STRAKS’ github (https://github.com/straks/straks) and Discord if you require assistance.


Masternodes

The masternode collateral (requirements for setting up a masternode) will be 50,000 STAK (updated as per 27th November: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2433318.msg24920954#msg24920954). This is a dynamic target value and is likely to change in the future, based on market price and ROI relative to its peers. This ensures that you get the best value out of your investment. The masternode requirement is therefore not final, it may decrease or increase in the future all depending on market dynamics.

Masternode payments will not be initiated until block 50,400. This is approximately four weeks from today’s date. This delayed reward mechanism seeks to provide sufficient time for swap holders and investors alike to set up nodes. As a result this also increases the likelihood of Masternode decentralization, which is something other popular peers have struggled with in the past and still are being challenged on. Rest assured knowing that decentralisation is a core priority for STRAKS.

For masternode payment rebalancing STRAKS introduces a new algorithm Reactive Equilibria (REV1) that seeks to rebalance the payments made to miners versus masternode holders. If you would like to read the full specifications on the algorithm, please proceed to the official github repository for further details (https://github.com/straks/straks).

We highly recommend that you take the time to read the official announcement thread on Bitcointalk (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2433318) as well as the currency and release specifications on the official STRAKS github repository (https://github.com/straks/straks). We are currently hard at work, ensuring a state of the art website that clearly communicates STRAKS focus and value proposition to investors and partners alike, where everything STRAKS will be available.



Closing Words

We would like to thank everyone who have contributed to supporting the STRAKS team’s effort in building the foundation and future for STRAKS. We thank the community for their continued support and we look forward to realising the full potential of STRAKS, together.


Your Sincerely,
The STRAKS Team

STRAKS Placement/Funding Round 1: CoinExchange.io Listing Fee


The STRAKS team is continuously working on expanding the accessibility of the currency; both through funding mining-pool codes changes and applying to be listed on various exchanges (as noted in the most recent weekly update).  However, given the current valuation of Bitcoin and nonsensical business strategy adopted by various exchanges to not rebase fees, we find ourselves a position where a more thorough cost/benefit analysis is required with regards to listing costs versus volume, liquidity, accessibility and valuation impact.  Among those exchange sites that we have evaluated, CoinExchange.io (https://coinexchange.io) appear to have a fair balance in terms of relative listing fee and overall daily trading volume.  The exchange has an approximate daily trading volume of ~$16 million and a listing fee of 2 BTC (https://coinmarketcap.com/exchanges/coinexchange/)

In order to raise the 2 BTC needed for listing, we are proposing to conduct a discounted placement/funding round.  The community will get the opportunity to acquire STRAKS at a discounted fixed rate directly from the STRAKS team.  Following which, the investor may find themselves in the enviable position of having sufficient STRAKS to set up a Masternode, thereby enjoying the benefits of a low supply lock ratio as we approach the Masternode rewards trigger - in approximately 15 days.  By allowing the whole community to participate, we stay firm in our commitment to promote a decentralized distribution of STRAKS.

At the time of writing, coinsmarkets.com (https://coinsmarkets.com/trade-BTC-STAK.htm) is the most “relatively liquid” market across STRAKS’ two exchanges.  We propose to use a 25% discount to mid market price as of 7th December 2017, 20:44 UTC:

Mid-market: (0.00004599 + 0.00002111) / 2 = 0.00003355
Discounted Offering Price: 0.00003355 * 0.75 = 0.00002516

Under this placement, the price for each STAK will be 0.00002516 BTC and a total of 80,000 STAKs will be for sale.

To participate in the placement round, you will need to send BTC to the address stated below and sign a message with your wallet as follows:

"I, <discord username/name/email> sent XXX BTC to the 'STRAKS Placement/Funding Round 1: CoinExchange.io Listing Fee' at XX:XX, X Dec 2017 in payment for purchasing STRAKS at the stated conversion price under the offering".

And then forward your BTC address where the coins were sent from, the BTC txid (transaction id), message, signature and your STRAKS payment address directly to Squbs on Discord, who will manually process the payments by Wednesday 13th December.



In Summary

What: To fund the listing fee for CoinExchange.io
Target: 2 BTC
Coins for sale: 80,000 STRAKS
Cost of each STRAKS: 0.00002516 BTC
Deadline: 11th December 23:59 UTC
Bitcoin Address: 3MHgD7yDozjnWgdAQqYryLyFPq1eT6mRhs



How to “buy” STRAKS

  • Send your Bitcoin to the above address
  • Sign a message with your wallet with the template text as shown above.  
  • Proceed to contact Squbs on Discord with Bitcoin address, message, signature, transaction id, and STRAKS payment address.  
  • Wait for STRAKS payment to be done on the 13th December.



Please note, we are actively trying to ensure a diverse distribution for the placement offering.  As such, the offering will remain open until the 11th December 23:59 UTC, irrespective of whether we surpass our 2 BTC target.  The 80,000 STAK will then be allocated pro-rata between all participants and the residual will then be refunded.  Each participant will be notified of their allocation and their refund amount by the 12th December 23:59.  Alternatively, the participant can choose to leave the residual in place as pre-funding for future exchange listing fees.

Nice infographic. When does the network start? The algorithm will attract botnets. Will there be only solo mining?
The reference to the github is broken.

The only way to mine STRAKS, right now, is via the STRAKS' wallet.
