Dear Giant enthusiasts!
As some of you may remember, we told you about Masternodes Awards 2019 held by BetweenBlocks together with Masternode Buzz and several other projects. We've hinted that Giant Coin (GIC) can become a winner in The Best Masternode Support category but there are several other nominations where Giant has good chances to become first - especially with your help!

1. The Most Innovative Use Case - Giant founders will use the blockchain-based Giant.Exchange to solve the problems of toxic binary options industry, and potentially expand the bets topic beyond crypto prices

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1J3bcPoMhCEYQtH5hrpJbgNrqiMzN6NwAk3rnAgj_kD8/viewform?edit_requested=true

2. Best Masternode Community - Giant is already a unique project with the active participation of masternode owners in strategic issues, namely the change of the Giant logo (remember the old one?) and bug fixes. The enthusiasm of our supporters should also not be underestimated

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1BHdpIkH0njJOuPAtSjZoWu8G5oCb1fVmNYoT7jgQpds/edit

Other options are The Best Wallet or App and The Best Marketing Strategy in 2018. The latter is, again, quite relevant for Giant, as there are not so much crypto projects with such a swift reporting on the recent activities of the team.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/15EnI0ax_KT88VpTOJkXdCDkLdZOj-lm3hpBOKDKJcc8/edit

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1NB79Vp0CiC52zNqcs0t692Pz8xAyUn2AnnNFJW0mw_c/edit

Of course, the choice is always yours and you can even vote for a different project, but we are still counting on your support. Thanks!

Our work is a constant learning process – adding smart contracts into the existing blockchain cannot be called a mundane process each cryptocurrency project undergoes. This is a non-trivial task requiring to solve many optimization issues and have a practical vision. That’s where Alexei Bokarev comes in: his attentive work on the edge of blockchain technologies will bring Giant smart contracts closer to each Giant investor.

The smart contracts metadata with the description of their methods (functions) allows to track a smart contract of choice and call it with the help of special commands. One of them is network – as of today, it shows accounts, the number of blocks and hashes. The last block of the blockchain always shows its version, the Merkle root, while the hash of the previous block serves as a basis for the smart contract call. When deploying the smart contract, 33 declarations are calculated which fully covers the MetaCoin contract syntax.

A week ago, Alexei has changed the display of the last block and now the system also shows its height, nonce and timestamp. Overall, the CONTRACT_CALL task has been one of the non-trivial ones we mentioned before: not even the Ethereum network has a full integrity when it comes to smart contract parameters. Still, it’s extremely important to divide different types of transactions and make the Giant contracts network secure.

Giant Coin could be easily kind of decentralised exchange for binary options. Crypto premiere !
Masternodes will recieve profits from WIN / LOSS, which is huge !!!

Keep it up good work

Considering the importance of the upcoming vote the first phase of which will be held on Discord, we are raising the reliability of masternode owner status verification. This solves several problems at once. You can read more about this in a detailed verification guide. We would like to remind that the submission of proposals for voting will end January 14 and the first phase (Discord voting) will last for 10 days. Only masternode owners who verified their role as told in this guide will be able to participate. This is why we are introducing a temporary Discord role that will allow to vote while all of the owners of the obsolete MN-owner role will keep access to the masternode owners chat until January 31.

Luckily, all the procedure takes no less than 5 minutes, you can leave the rest to our automated blockchain-based digital signature solutions! We hope that by reading this guide, you will also learn more about the unique opportunities provided by cryptography.

Please carefully read this guide for more information:

https://giantpay.network/pages/masternode-owner-verification-process

It’s no secret that some other cryptocurrency projects have started to borrow our best practices such as a private chat for MN owners – this was our innovation introduced to the masternode market back in August 2018. Now we are once again introducing a new standard based on advanced technologies. Let’s raise the Giant Community quality to the next level together!

From Discord ANNOUNCMENT !

The Discord server is one of the primary means of communication for the Giant project. It plays a major role for many people to start using Giant. Sadly, this same channel can be used for malicious activities. On several occasions, some users deliberately tried to spread FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) to provoke a panic sell and buy cheap coins. Although we are open to any kinds of discussion, we cannot ignore such efforts and put new community members at risk. This becomes even more important in the light of the recent community growth throughout the last month.

:shield: This is what brought us to the following decision: if the user demonstrates aggressive behavior in the chat, ignores all of the counterarguments and never tones down, it leads to a FUD role – a prohibition to post messages in all chats on our server. This isolation is a good alternative to banning, as we don’t want to deprive this toxic user of the project info source altogether.

:gic: And now let’s switch to good news. The yesterday update of verification of the masternode owner role has caused a wave of user activity and at the moment, over 30 users have acquired the digitally-signed role. It will allow them to take part in the upcoming vote. @Bruttagente has made the verification process as stable and fast as possible. As a reminder, you can verify your masternode owner status with a digital signature to take part in the future voting with the help of this guide:

https://giantpay.network/pages/masternode-owner-verification-process

:gear: @htw has completed the launch of Giant masternodes on the IPv6 server and proposed several additions to our guide to ease the process. Thanks to him, @mani and @ballz41 who helped him to figure this out. The updated guide is available by this link:

One of the most things I like in the Giant project is its Trello tracking list.
It helps me easier to know what the team focused at each period, what has been done, what has been on the way to finish, and near future plans of Giant project.

Quite possibly, everyone knows about the so-called Fake Stake attacks.
Our developers took some time to research the problem independently and without resorting to quick copy-pasting of GitHub commits made by other projects.
The Giant user funds are secure for the following reasons:
- The authors have studied PoS 3.0 while Giant operates under PoS 2.0
- This attack cannot perform double spending as a result

Now you can track the development process in #github channel on Discord.
This is especially important considering how we don’t want to distract the devs with a parade of inquiries on their hard work.
Commits are broadcasted from three main product repositories:
 - GiantCore
 - Giantjs
 - Giant.Exchange

My plans for tomorrow include a joint call with Blockfolio CEO Edward Moncada on the addition of Giant to their platform.
It is the world's most popular Bitcoin and cryptocurrency portfolio management app. If you are using this app, please tell about your experience.

Don't forget that quite soon users that have not updated their MN role will lose the access to the private Discord channel.
Please follow these steps. It won't take more than 5 minutes.

You can check several GitHub commits collectively made by Ablai and Denis. It has been added to the Giant.Exchange votes archive.

https://github.com/GiantPay/GiantExchange/pull/20

Ablai is currently making the platform back-end side (Graphql and Node.js) while also reviewing the updates made by Denis.
The Giant.Exchange (GEX) community voting is one of the most underestimated features of the binary options platform: every new underlying asset or data source can be put on vote. This will result in GEX having only what the end user needs! Another important aspect of GEX changeable by the vote is the distribution of dividends.

This is how the archive currently looks:

We would like to tell about a good strategic advantage of Giant Contracts that will seriously contribute to all future dApps security.

It's no secret that smart contracts made on new programming languages have mistakes often missed by their original creators. One of the most illustrative examples is Solidity - this was recently pointed out by Duncan Coutts (Computer Science PhD) from Input Output Hong Kong, an independent team of experienced blockchain engineers.

As he says, the problem is that some programming languages have well-established practices of software creation, while others are still too young. Because of that, smart contract creators leave unfixed errors which can lead to DAO hacks.
JavaScript developer Alexei Bokarev who’s responsible for delivering of Giant Contracts joins this discussion and tells that the programming language itself is very rarely to blame for security vulnerabilities - ultimately, it's still about the people responsible for code writing and about their skills.

The future smart contracts system on the Giant blockchain will have less chances to become compromised because of a human error by the decentralized apps creators: all of such contracts will be written on a language that is widely-known and researched by the large coding community - JavaScript. This is how we seek to make Giant Contracts available for the widespread use. This will also ensure that every Giant smart contract is a job well done.

Good news for everyone who's interested in Giant Contracts progress!

GiantJS developer Alexei Bokarev has made it possible to calculate the exact sum needed for the Giant contract deployment and WP methods execution fees. This also means that the system is already able to show the budget you need to work with smart contracts (for now, only with dummy ones).

However, we're yet to finish this work with fees for all possible methods execution. The so-called WP methods are only a limited range of commands one can use with Giant Contracts. The fees calculation for other methods will be finished faster because now our devs have a working basic structure.

The main advantage of our fees calculation mechanism is the ability of the system to determine the real contribution a chosen smart contract is doing to the blockchain and dApps. This is different to some popular projects where the fees' value is calculated by looking at the amount of symbols in a contract. This is a primitive approach, as theoretically there can be smart contracts which have less symbols than usual ones but play a more important role in the system.

Other notable recent breakthroughs include smart contracts payments to multiple wallets at the same time. The wallet info display is now complete as well. You can see all the progress for yourself here, in our corresponding GitHub repo:
