I have begun coding a script (with database) that should include all basic functions required to accept monero (deposit/purchase,withdraw/transfer,check balance).

While doing this I can also document the functions. I'm using the available pre-built libraries for development, it seems some parameters I need to make it scalable are currently not included in those, or maybe I'm missing something (asking on irc).

Once these issues are resolved I'll continue development.

To get an idea, this is what it looks like currently (and incomplete)

Feel free to give suggestions.

Hi, I almost never post on this forum but I wanted to say that this effort is crucial and hugely appreciated, TheKoziTwo.  As soon as this guide is published I think we'll see a significant increase in implementation, from shapeshifter.io to cryptsy to marketplace and auction sites to niche sites, etc etc.

Since it seems you're coding an entire example application and waiting for ideal circumstances, I wonder if someone could offer an impromptu diy guide on how to communicate with the monero daemon from a server-side scripting language, the way it's currently done on Poloniex etc., for people like me (self-taught programmers, say, who don't want to wait on core development to get this economy started).  It could be as simple as "google how to do this, this, and this, put them all together, oh, and I recommend this great book on best security practices while you're at it", or even "You idiot! Don't you know anything?  Just put ____ in ____ and write a ____ script".  That would be a starting point and I can find my way from there.


Here is my perspective Wink


Monero API .NET
API for data transmission and retrieval from Monero applications through the Microsoft .NET Framework

GitHub repository | NuGet package

This project allows developers to flawalessly access the functionailty of Monero applications through the Core assemblies' RPC services. As the software is open-source, everyone can contribute, achieving the best performance and reliability for end-users.

Why is this API necessary?
It makes the implementation of Monero extremely easy for merchants, wallet builders, and all the other developers who are interested in working with (or accepting) Monero. Also, the core developers can concentrate more on the internals (instead of spending time on the official GUI client), which means that the currency should advance faster.

Is it cross-platform?
The first 3 releases of the API were only made for desktop PCs running Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 or higher, thus, resulting in a smaller userbase than wanted. Since v3, the project has been split into 2 subprojects, one which is responsible for communicating with the daemon and the account manager's RPC channel, and one which can manage the required processes on PC.

What kind of platforms can utilize the power of Monero API .NET, then?
Basically every device which has support for running the Microsoft .NET Portable Framework v4, and more: Microsoft is planning to provide native (C++) compilation of C# assemblies very soon, and this process can be even faster since .NET Core has been made open-source.
The project can run on PCs (Windows; Mac and Linux with Mono .NET), mobile phones (Windows Phone; Android and iOS with Xamarin), and even on video game consoles like Xbox.

How does it work?
As I have already mentioned above, the project consists of 2 parts: MoneroAPI, and MoneroAPI.Extensions. The first one is built as a PCL (portable class library) and is multiplatform, while the extensions are desktop-only and contain functions for hosting a full node. Basically, MoneroAPI is preferable for lightweight, client-only applications, and MoneroAPI.Extensions adds support for hosting the Monero Core processes with ease.
There is a demo project included in the GitHub repository for a more technical explanation.

"impossible to counterfeit" should be a major selling point of cryptocurrencies. Not sure why this isn't advertised more.

A large part of taking credit instead of cash is because it's tough to counterfeit the value, yet identity theft/cc theft is still a reality.

A question about the Monero wallet: doesn't it rotatte the addresses, like HD wallets? I'm asking this because in Bitcoin this practice is strongly discouraged, not just for privacy reasons, but for security reasons. In Monero I think the reuse address shouldn't be a issue for privacy, but what about security?

Quote
Bitcoin does not, at a low level, have any concept of addresses, only individual coins. Address reuse, at this layer, requires producing multiple digital signatures when you spend bitcoins. Multiple situations have been found where more than one digital signature can be used to calculate the private key needed to spend bitcoins. Even if you spend all the bitcoins claimed by this private key at once, it is still possible to double-spend them in theft before they confirm. While the known situations for finding the private key from signatures have been fixed, it is not prudent to assume there aren't more such situations yet unknown.

In the case of spending all the TXOs in a single transaction, there is an additional risk if someone is actively monitoring the network for vulnerable transactions: upon receiving such a transaction, they can split up their double spends such that there is only one ECDSA verification per transaction (making a single transaction for each TXO); this will cause the attacker's transactions to relay across the rest of the nodes faster than the legitimate one, increasing success of a double spend.

You only have one address in Monero. Since outputs use dual-key stealth addresses there's really no need to have multiple addresses in a single wallet:)

To clarify a tiny bit more for those who may not be familiar with how stealth addresses work, on the blockchain the addresses are never reused. The cryptography creates a new address every time automatically (just like you are supposed to do with Bitcoin, but hardly anyone actually does).

A large part of taking credit instead of cash is because it's tough to counterfeit the value, yet identity theft/cc theft is still a reality.
I actually have a slogan idea that says "Monero: better than cash", since it provides all the advantages of cash (except independance over electricity and internet, granted) plus completely unforgeable, as you said (barring 51% attack, of course) and low friction (since it is electronic).

A question about the Monero wallet: doesn't it rotatte the addresses? I'm asking this because in Bitcoin this practice is strongly discouraged, not just for privacy reasons, but for security reasons. In Monero I think the reuse address shouldn't be a issue for privacy, but what about security?

I see one use of multiple addresses: when you don't want to know that two transactions go to the same address (like if you don't want people to find you by googling your address which is on bitcointalk signature of profile, or openalias, for instance).
But since there is no much of these needs, you may as well just use a second wallet.

Darkcoin have a big Community and good proceedings.

When is Monero 100% ready?  and what´s on Monero better than Darkcoin

My Opinion is

All in in Monero

or

50% in Monero and 50% in Darkcoin

Is Monero so much better?

Yes, Monero can hit 100$ per coin. You should invest in Monero.

Looooooool.

I hope it will hit 100$, but i can only advise to invest one part in monero and one part in darkcoin.

Welp, your in the monero thread, so you're going to get a biased opinion here!

If you don't want to do the research and want the quick 'n dirty, Monero has stealth addresses and privacy (through ring signatures) baked in to the source code (cryptonote), whereas DarkCoin is more or less a conventional blockchain with required coin mixing performed at the infrastructure level.

So, in monero, the entire network is involved in the process of making things private and anonymous. Every active node is doing it.
In darkcoin, there is a subset of the network (masternodes) that are responsible for making things private and anonymous. Fans of Monero think that this masternode concept is a weakness. Fans of Darkcoin don't.

When is monero 100% ready? It depends on your definition of 100% ready. If you wanted to get some monero and send it to someone else with a monero account, then its 100% ready.

If you want to do send monero to to someone else with a monero account and want to do it without touching a linux terminal, its 100% ready (www.mymonero.com)

If you want to do send monero to to someone else with a monero account and want to do it without touching a linux terminal and do it all on your computer, its ready (there are GUIs available)

I have about 5k Dollar to invest. Should i invest in Monero or Darkcoin?   Can Monero make me rich?

Fixed.  Wink

It seems a lot of people are here just to get rich quickly. OK, I can't speak against this practice, I'd like to be rich too (tomorrow would be a great day for me to getting rich  Roll Eyes ).  Grin

But in cryptocoins, I think you buy some of a specific cryptocoin because you like it, and you'd like to use to pay someone for something in the future or to tip someone without compromising your privacy, in the case of Monero.

Just an observation: according to CoinMarketCap, the Monero volume was about 13000 USD in the last 24 hours. Buying 5000 USD in Moneroj at one-time has a great potential to push up the prices (and maybe a little crash later).

I see one use of multiple addresses: when you don't want to know that two transactions go to the same address (like if you don't want people to find you by googling your address which is on bitcointalk signature of profile, or openalias, for instance).
But since there is no much of these needs, you may as well just use a second wallet.

Yeah, after all, creating a new address is very easy. Smiley In my case I was just worried about the possibility of a hacker recovering the private key in the case of a reusing address, because there are some claims about this possibility in Bitcoin and its direct derivatives (see the second link of my first post).
