Alias is an innovative privacy-focused cryptocurrency, featuring an energy-efficient proof-of-stake algorithm that provides rapid transaction confirmations, ring signatures for privacy and anonymity, and a fully integrated Tor+OBFS4 layer for IP obfuscation within the wallet.

Alias was born out of a desire to create a simple, borderless, private cryptocurrency; improving Bitcoin’s original idea with more robust privacy protocols and a more energy-friendly network through the use of Proof-of-Stake. Alias has a highly competent core development team comprised of a software architect and a software engineer with decades of experience. Alias aims to position itself at the forefront of the decentralised privacy revolution.

White paper updated Oct 2020: Alias White Paper.pdf



Feature Tech Overview
More Details Here

Alias is a secure Proof-of-Stake-v3 cryptocurrency network with real Anonymous Transaction Capability.
Alias has fully integrated Tor and all Alias nodes run as hidden services.
Alias uses ring-signatures / stealth technology to protect your privacy.
Alias has a unique ‘Proof-of-Anonymous-Stake’ staking algorithm using ring-signatures. The first to implement this.
Alias solved a well-known privacy issue affecting decoy-based currencies like Monero and Grin, by developing unique algorithms to mitigate this. (see link below)
Alias ensured the full software could run on a Raspberry Pi; providing a low-cost, eco-friendly option for those with low-powered devices.
Alias is Fast and offers Low-Cost Transaction fees confirming transactions within seconds and only costing .0001 ALIAS

Alias released a world-first for an Android app, fully-featured Proof-of-Anonymous-Stake (PoAS) allowing mobile users to earn rewards, while maintaining their right to privacy.



‘Proof-of-Anonymous-Stake’ PoAS
On 17/05/2019 (17th May 2019) 2000 GMT (UTC) London, UK time the Alias network activated ‘Stealth Staking’ with a hard-fork. This activated Alias v3.x with our novel ‘Proof-of-Anonymous-Stake’ protocol. This release had been nearly 10 months in development and testing and introduced the first fully anonymous staking system on a trustless setup. In addition, there are other major changes in v3.x. The block time increased to 96 seconds and the stake reward is now fixed per block. The reward for a block staked with private ALIAS (PoAS) is 3 ALIAS. The reward for a block staked with public ALIAS (PoSv3), is 2 ALIAS. This will slightly decrease inflation over time.

Development Contribution Blocks (DCB)
One in six (1 in 6) block rewards will be a designated DCB and will be sent to the Alias team development fund wallet. This fund will ensure a future for Alias, will enable us to pay for certain services, to hire contractors and to pay Alias core team members in ALIAS to enable them to work full time on the project. We have some long-term projects and concepts to implement such as Cold Staking, DeFi integration and more innovation around privacy and mobile use. These developments depend on a source of steady funding. We believe this will give us the opportunity to produce better software and will create value for investors. We currently have some very skilled developers working for us and we want to keep it that way.



Key Privacy Technology
More Details Here

Anonymous coin creation: Through the use of dual-key stealth technology Alias provides the ability to generate ‘anonymous coins’ that we simply call Private Alias that can be spent in anonymous and private transactions. Alias is a dual coin system and also comprises the ‘normal’ coin we call Public Alias that can be used in traditional transactions much like Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies.

Ring Signatures: ALIAS can be sent anonymously through an implementation of ring signatures based on the Cryptonote protocol to eliminate any transaction history. The wallet offers the opportunity to transfer your balance between public and private coins. We are currently working on improving this technology to improve functionality and privacy.

‘Proof-of-Stealth’ (Anonymous Staking): Starting with Alias v3 (released on 17th May 2019) users can now stake anonymously using our unique algorithm based on PoSv3 but using ring-signatures and stealth addresses.

Built in Tor: The Alias software offers a full integration of Tor (https://www.torproject.org/) so that the Alias client runs as a Tor hidden service using an onion address to connect to other clients in the network. Your real IP address is therefore protected at all times.

Developers
We are always looking for skilled developers. We are in particular looking for a permanent developer with excellent C++ skills, cryptocurrency / blockchain background and an understanding of cryptography. We are about to enter into a very exciting period and we have plans for further development that will present a unique opportunity to work with a highly specialised team and get your name known.
We can offer pay and benefits (stake in the project).

Tor Integration Consultant
We are looking for an individual with extensive experience of Tor (https://www.torproject.org/) integrations / implementations and a deep understanding of Tor. We are looking for someone who will be able to analyse / audit the way in which Tor is integrated into the Spectre software and discover vulnerabilities, weaknesses and possible attack vectors and document this and suggest upgrades and security improvements. This would also include research into the best possible way to integrate Tor pluggable transports and which pluggable transports might best serve the Spectre network.
We can offer pay and benefits (stake in the project).

If you want a unique opportunity to develop this exciting project then join the Discord (https://discord.gg/ckkrb8m) server and message: @Mandica#9367

If you think you can contribute in some other way, please contact us!

A word of about moderation:
This thread is to discuss XSPEC and nothing else. If you have something sensible, fine, if not then don't post. We will delete any post that is off-topic or appears slanderous, aggressive, abusive or otherwise irrelevant or outright attempts at FUD, Trolling etc.

Oh so this is a new ANN so you can have control over all the posts in the ANN?
This coin was shilled like there's no tomorrow. Is this a way to let people shill the coin while deleting the negative posts?
Let's see if this gets deleted.

I think the issue here is that you don't read and understand my point of moderation. I never said that negative posts would be deleted as long as they are constructive and has some meaning. We just don't need empty polemics. We can discuss the software.

Yes, let's talk about XSPEC here...
A technically advanced anon coin with a very interesting history and a committed Dev...
As opposed to the last thread that was hijacked by newbies and one guy shilling a vapor fork.

This is now the official Spectrecoin voice on BCT: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2103301.msg39315015#msg39315015
This is for Spectrecoin discussion, nothing else. As stated, I have been around BCT for a while and we need a clean thread with information and sensible discussion. The most active discussion is over at Discord and if you follow GitHub you can take part in the technical aspects of things.

We are working to integrate Tor pluggable transports that will enable the wallet to work in China. There is no such thing as a transaction between stealth addresses. A stealth address is a means to prevent address re-use and if you send to a stealth address it will generate a new normal address every time so that transactions can not be correlated on the blockchain. Please read this before we discuss stealth addresses further: https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/1500/what-is-a-stealth-address

Anyway, why do you open a new thread? It is the second time to open a new one?

   You promised three months ago that you will write about the work done every week. But now we do not see it. What work was done last week? We only know that two people are working on a new code and one company is working on a new site. And we do not know when they'll get their work done.
   And who is working on TOR and Obfs4?
   I read the article you recommended. It was very interesting and informative. But my question was about non-performing transactions. I can not send coins from my stealth address to another stealth address. And just wanted to know when this will be fixed?
   When will the mobile wallet be released?

There is a newsletter as I said about every two week and you can follow GitHub for updates or come to Discord. I strongly recommend our Discord server as there are people there to answer questions.

Your question still does not make any sense, what is a non-performing transaction? Can you give me some screenshots and error messages please. Also, for the problem you describe "send coins from my stealth address to another stealth address." I still do not understand what you mean as you just keep repeating the same. Can you post some screenshots and error messages please.

If you can't describe the problem in more detail with screenshots etc. I just don't know what you are doing. We need to be able to replicate the bug to deal with it. You need to be specific.

I see that a new wallet version is released just several days ago.

Is it mandatory? Is the "old" (v.1.4.0-g) workable?

Shall I have to update my wallet to make sure the wallet stake work well?

   Have you found a developer who will work with TOR or Obfs4? Who can make a wallet working in China?
   GitHub is a site for professional programmers. Investors can not understand this information. You can tell us the progress of the week with the help of usual offers and terms that are understandable for the ordinary investor.
   Also I wrote to you in another branch about the problem of transactions between the stealth address. but you promised to answer and did not answer. Ok, I'll repeat:
I have several wallet.dat files. And when I replace this file with a wallet, I can not do transactions with stealth address on another stealth address. an inscription appears on the screen:
“error: the transaction was rejected. This might happen if some of the coins in your wallet were already spent, such as if you used a copy of wallet.dat and coins were spent in the copy”
so I can do transactions either from a normal address to a normal address, or from a normal address to my stealth address inside the wallet. On another stealth sddress, I can not send coins.

For all (future) newcomers, I am invested in XSPEC for about a year now! This an amazingly privacy-tech-focused coin! TOR OBFS4 integration, Stealth addresses, ring signatures, PoSv3, ZKP...

There was some struggle a couple of months ago but with new/old leadership this project got a new strong direction!

so I can do transactions either from a normal address to a normal address, or from a normal address to my stealth address inside the wallet. On another stealth sddress, I can not send coins.

This error message appears if you spent the coins in one wallet.dat file and then try to spend the same coins. It is what it says. There are sometimes some problems with the GUI not updating properly with some balance but this is a JS problem that we are working on. The blockchain is not wrong, so if you get that message your coins have been spent. We have tested all sorts of transactions for more than a year and a half and all transactions work as they should. Give me the address of the coins you are trying to spend and some screenshots. Alternatively you can contact me in Discord and give me copy of the wallet.dat and we can try to retrieve the coins for you.

We don't do weekly updates for investors. We try to do b-weekly / fortnightly updates in the newsletter: https://news.spectreproject.io/

The advise to investors in cryptocurrency is firstly, Do not invest more than you can afford to loose and This is experimental software and the price can go up or down.

I've been away for the last few months and seem to have missed a lot. Is stealth staking still on the roadmap or was it just a pipedream?

Also why do we have a new thread? What's wrong with the old? I don't see any clues here about that.

A new thread was started primarily because my "legendary" account was compromised, immediately locked when I was notified and sadly unable to be recovered.
I had that account for many years previous to joining the SpectreCoin [xspec] project and it was a terrible inconvenience for me personally. I can only wonder at what purpose someone had in their action other than hoping to derail what is a fantastic project.

A word to the wise.....protect your account.....there are some sick,hateful people in the world and sadly also here on BitCoinTalk.
