XMR.TO introduces zero-confirmation, instant conversions.
We also added integrated addresses, and increased the maximum amount you can convert in one go to 20BTC.

Enjoy!


Those are major improvements to an already very usable service. Thanks binaryFate for your hard work and great product.

Hello guys,
here Serhack, the man of web integrations.

I have discovered this forum 3 days ago and then I wrote this post for you about my updates.

Some days ago community funded me on https://forum.getmonero.org/9/work-in-progress/87734/monero-integrations-with-web-apps (thanks again).
With or without xmr, I would develop web integrations for every e-commerce system like prestashop, woocommerce, whmcs  (ugh.. it's difficult)..

Progress in 1 month:

- Monero PHP Library https://github.com/monero-integrations/monerophp

With Monero PHP library, client (any ecommerce system) can communicate with wallet rpc. Client can know the address, height of blocks, payments : useful things for a merchants!

Some Reddit posts:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/6g9ps5/web_integrations_update/
https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/6hytn5/web_integrations_update_2/
https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/6j796u/web_integrations_update_first_milestone_completed/

- Monero WooCommerce Payment Gateway

Buy something, scan qr code and pay with monero by clicking on your wallet gui!

Reddit posts:

Looks better on a cellphone anyhow.  Waiting for the "premium on site service" I paid for to get fulfilled by dell right now.

Ah, much more professional and clean that it was. Well, at least after I enable JavaScript that is.

I'm starting a technology blog T4CH.top, check it out!

Very nice. However, I still don't see installation instructions especially in Linux (I had to watch an old youtube video to learn how to go about it the hard way). BTW, how do I create a shortcut for "start-gui.sh" on the Linux Mint 18.2 desktop? Pardon the noob question as I am Linux-averse due to CLI phobia but I'm trying to learn though.

Currently, the GUI is useless in signing transactions offline due to a known and open window-scaling issue in some devices with smaller/lower-res screen (at least for me anyway) wherein the "Advanced Options" buttons at the bottom are cut off and inaccessible (specifically the "Sign tx file" button). It's supposed to be fixed in the next release but in the meantime, what are the steps to sign transactions offline using CLI (reluctantly due to CLI phobia but I'm left with no choice).

Moreover, in Linux Mint 18.2, a usable GUI window appears under 30 seconds after launching while the same process takes about 8 minutes in Windows 7 on the same device. Note that the device is a netbook set up with a cold/offline wallet albeit a bit souped up with Windows 7 64-bit/2GB RAM/SSD (stock spec was Windows 7 Starter 32-bit/1GB RAM/HDD). Why this very significant disparity in starting time? Is Linux binary more optimized than that of Windows?

Until scaling is fixed I found this way to launch gui helpful:
QT_SCALE_FACTOR=0.8 ./start-gui.sh

It's supposed to be fixed in the next release but in the meantime, what are the steps to sign transactions offline using CLI (reluctantly due to CLI phobia but I'm left with no choice).


See:

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/2868/is-there-any-way-to-construct-a-transaction-manually/2916

To create a view wallet, one has to add the --generate-from-view-key <view-wallet-name> flag.

On Windows make sure to launch it from the command line. Go to the folder monero-wallet-cli is located and make sure your cursor isn't located on any of the files. Subsequently do SHIFT + right click and it will give you an option to "Open command window here". Lastly, type the following command:

Code:
monero-wallet-cli --generate-from-view-key <view-wallet-name>

On Linux and Mac OS X you should use the terminal to launch monero-wallet-cli. Note that this has to be done from the directory monero-wallet-cli is located in. The command is as follows:

Code:
./monero-wallet-cli --generate-from-view-key <view-wallet-name>



Moreover, in Linux Mint 18.2, a usable GUI window appears under 30 seconds after launching while the same process takes about 8 minutes in Windows 7 on the same device. Note that the device is a netbook set up with a cold/offline wallet albeit a bit souped up with Windows 7 64-bit/2GB RAM/SSD (stock spec was Windows 7 Starter 32-bit/1GB RAM/HDD). Why this very significant disparity in starting time? Is Linux binary more optimized than that of Windows?

This discrepancy seems rather odd, although I suspect it may be the same bug that causes black screens on Windows. See:

https://github.com/monero-project/monero-core/pull/777



P.S. Please try Andretti83's suggestion as well, it may fix your scaling issues.

If you don't know how to set an environment variable on Windows, see this guide:

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/2928/how-to-change-the-monero-wallet-gui-rendering-mode-for-older-computers

Obviously, you have to replace QMLSCENE_DEVICE=softwarecontext with QT_SCALE_FACTOR=0.8, as this guide was written for another purpose.

Is Alphabay the only darknet website that accepts Monero as of today? I heard that they are now down and that they might have exited the market, stealing all their users funds. What happens now?

Windows 8.1 takes forever to load GUI for me as well.  64bit, 4GB RAM, SSD.  Not a big deal, but occasionally annoying.  I usually have the daemon running already when I launch GUI.  Time to switch to Linux?  Yep.  Been on the to do list for about 3 years  Cheesy

@Hueristic. I am waiting for the dump but so far all I see is a pump. I missed it. Sad

By they way, how did Monero become accepted in Alphabay and what does it take for the other darknet sites to follow them? Is it their decision or does the community have to make it known to them that XMR is a good choice too?

I was making a joke actually. Smiley For all we know they were the ones keeping the price suppressed lately. AFA them adopting XMR it looks like that was a choice they made as it fit their business model. I'd assume eventually all markets should accept XMR dark or otherwise. Whats the reason not to?

[2] Wow! One has to jump through all those hoops just to create a simple shortcut on the desktop in Linux . I'll stick to launching it directly Grin. We can bash Windoze all we want but this is just one of the many reasons why it's more popular and has a mainstream adoption instead of just a niche OS. Thanks though.
