Mission Statement Deft
A powerful high secured memory hard blockchain based on Stanford designed balloon hash will allow users to use the deft chain as basic layer and deploy easily own parallel blockchains ( top-balloons) on the top of it and inter operate and collaborate between them, creating interconnected powerful secured blockchains (superclustered-balloons).  The Codebase of the deft chain will  upgrade to the newest Version 0.16 and  instead of one hashing method, we will introduce five variants of the revised balloon512 algo, which can be mined concurrently for a fair user experience.

Introduction
The first cryptocurrency to implement the 'Balloon' memory-hard hashing function, superior in strength to Argon2, while remaining resistant to cache/side-channel attacks.
Additionally, the Balloon Hashing function does not require anywhere near as much memory to demonstrate its memory-hardness; making it possible for low-memory devices to verify hashes, an often overlooked but very important part of 'Proof of Work'.

What's a side-channel attack?
A term quickly referred to but rarely understood by most; a 'side-channel' attack refers to an attacker being able to use data obtained indirectly from the machine performing the hashing, to weaken or defeat the actual protection provided by the hashing in the first place.
Any hashing algorithm should not be susceptible to this; as i) multi-user operating system environments have become wide-spread since the 1980's and ii) we should expect the attacker to be able to be on the same system (albeit without the same level of privilege) and gain no advantage over the protection the hashing algorithm offers.

Argon2 vs Balloon
This is the most often quoted comparison; however it is not safe/fair to compare the two algorithms, at least in a 'Proof of Work' paradigm.
Most algorithms, including all variations of Argon2 (Argon2d/i/id), converted in this sense pass the blockheader as the 'password' and the 'salt', to the hashing algorithm; which isn't quite the ideal usage scenario in the minds of the algorithm authors, however it is safer than having a static 'salt'.
In a purely 'password hashing' arena; it should be noted several fairly serious attack methods have been identified and trialled against Argon2, some of these same attacks were still resistant against Balloon Hashing. Additionally, the password-hashing competition doesn't define cryptographic/hashing standards, it serves as a platform to bring the concept out in the open.
Argon2 is still a worthy candidate against Balloon, shoulder to shoulder. Unfortunately some of the best discussion/debate is no longer available (http://gmane.org/details.php?group=gmane.comp.security.phc) due to abuse/being pulled offline.

Intriguing Benson, tell me more
The original password hashing algorithm was developed by Dan Boneh, Henry Corrigan-Gibbs and Stuart Schechter (https://crypto.stanford.edu/balloon/) and was submitted to the 'Password Hashing Competition' (https://password-hashing.net/).
The password hashing algorithm was later modified for PoW use last year and gradually refined since; the latest iteration being very small (2 files only requiring openssl lib/headers) and quite easy to implement; whilst remaining easy to introduce different length inputs, memory and mixing parameters.
Another version is currently being written/tested (identical parameters, so will be 100% compatible) that removes the current version's reliance on the openssl library; while not being expected to be any quicker, it will then become 100% platform-independent/portable.

Translations, signature campaigns
Please note that while we will offer bounties/competitions in the future, we will not ask/request for translations, signature campaigns as we feel these sorts of thing (while well-intentioned) are tacky/cheap. If you'd like to translate in a language we don't support; feel free to submit and we will include it (for free).
We have several ideas in mind for interesting and unique bounties; so stay tuned

Hm, have problem with compiling on ubuntu 16.04:

Code:
  CXXLD    deftd
/usr/bin/ld: libbitcoin_consensus.a(libbitcoin_consensus_a-balloon.o): relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against undefined symbol `SHA256_Init@@OPENSSL_1.0.0' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Bad value
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:3641: recipe for target 'deftd' failed
make[2]: *** [deftd] Error 1

Can dev to fix this? Please.

setgenerate works decently or prefer the cpuminer..?

$MAID & $BTC other than that some short hodls and some long held garbage.

unfortunately setgenerate was removed early on (in 0.13 i think), i did briefly visit this but decided that external cpuminer/getblocktemplate or stratum would be the way to go.

If you go to the '%AppData%\Roaming\Deft' folder and create Deft.conf with the following:
Code:
server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=chooseausername
rpcpassword=chooseapassword
rpcbind=127.0.0.1
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

Then save, launch Deft wallet.. you should be able to solo-mine by changing your launch.cmd to read:
Code:
cpuminer.exe -a balloon -o http://127.0.0.1:12668 -u chooseausername -p chooseapassword --no-getwork --coinbase-addr=anaddressfromyourwallet
