@jl777:
Did you take a look at Isis2 project?
http://isis2.codeplex.com/
I think the Cloud Computing library there can help you deal with virtual synchrony.

jl777 SuperNET Slack crosspost

I abstracted the MGW/ramchain into a data provider -> data consumer
via load balanced and fault tolerant three level set of relay nodes

what this means is that any node can make a load balanced request for any SuperNET API and they can also subscribe to the data stream from any plugin running on any node as all nodes (plugins within a node) become publishers

first design goal is speed
so I am just providing a reliable channel between service providers and end user nodes, and the plugins can be 100% javascript so run on HTML only setups
basically all the coins can make a bridging plugin that publishes services from their blockchain with <100 lines of code

and these plugins can be dynamically loaded and unloaded, so the user can have a control panel to enable/disable built in plugins and load new ones, it is like the apt-get but much faster as the loading of a plugin is taking but seconds

current from command line, I can issue a <plugin> <method> {json args} and it is sent to the load balanced relays and gets a response back
there will be a list of "publications" that are synchronized in the relays, so then the client node can directly subscribe to whatever service

the problem I have is connectivity. my local node only seems to connect to a small subset of the relay nodes and only in some directions, ie only to the relay for some nodes, only from the relay to other nodes. then again I cant even directly ssh from this node, so it is quite a bad case

there is a "peers" plugin that sends a request to all peers, not all peers will have to respond, but this is a good way to sync up to the current status
since my node is unable to make reliable connection, this is not working, so I implemented a "broadcast" flag, from command line it is just "!"
!<plugin> <method> {json args}

the above will use the fault tolerant load balanced method to get the request into the relays and the receiving relay will do the <plugin> <method> {json args}

including "peers" global polling. it is taking about 500 milliseconds for a relay node to global poll the other nodes, but I only have 13 relay nodes currently

still I think we can limit the responses to half a second and another half second ping time back still gets us a 1 second response for a global poll and the relay node can even make a summary report to save bandwidth

this all probably seems a bit abstract, let me make it a bit more concrete
client node submits "!MGW status" -> relays -> broadcasts to service provider nodes ... (500 milliseconds) <- all MGW nodes respond with status
the relay node, combines the MGW status data and sends it back

another use case
InstantDEX prices and current quotes aggregated by the relay nodes
client makes a new quote via load balanced request -> relay nodes synchronize and push an update to their subscribers
all other client nodes (by default they subscribe to all the relay nodes) receive the pushed update

it will even be possible (if direct connection is working between) for two nodes to cross subscribe to each other directly
then they can directly feed their quotes to each other, skipping the relay process. this would be for market makers who are in the same trading market

before everyone starts screaming "centralization", there is a "join" method that adds a new node and if you have the "iamrelay" field set in the SuperNET.conf, then your node becomes one of the relays

and of course, all nodes are at the same time running the client and the relay code at the same time
it will be possible to use the relay nodes like proxies, so all the requests are done via the relay nodes and this will shield the MGW server IP addresses
however with any node being able to be added, the MGW nodes will need to limit to a whitelist what relays they use

for now I am getting the basics working and will push through the MGW and InstantDEX use cases. After they both work, then it will be ready for a more rigorous definition of the plugin (some call it agent) interface and expansion to all the other languages
I will then be able to add the privacy features, so by enabling a privacy plugin, your node goes dark but still gets most all the functionality

as far as MGW reliability goes, as long as 2 of the 3 servers are alive and have up to date coin wallets, there should be no down time and the response will be coin confirmation time + 5 seconds

for those that are impatient, please understand that rewriting 50,000 lines of code is not something even I can do in 1 week, that is why it has taken so long, but without a fast and reliable service, we have nothing.  After the transition to the plugin/agent architecture, things become a lot more manageable. I am able to make a new plugin within minutes and all it has to do is respond to JSON requests. There are nn_loadbalanced(), nn_allpeers(), nn_publish() calls that issue the three types of calls and the system automatically updates the network topology as needed

I hope this is enough of a detailed status to allow everyone to understand where things are. I still have 20,000 lines to debug, but pretty much all the ramchain/MGW code base has been reworked to the new model. I still need to port the InstantDEX, but I dont see any difficult issues for solving once the relays are working as the difficult issues for InstantDEX is the relays.

I guess another way to look at it is that I have been working on the relays for InstantDEX, but it is general enough to solve MGW
unless any questions, I need to get back to debugging. so many lines to go before I sleep
the new SuperNET relays is quite useful, even outside of pure crypto as it can handle a generalized pub/sub model, ie audio, video (needs to bypass relays), file sharing, etc

Development Update and Donation Request:

Dear BitcoinDark Community,

BitcoinDark development has been ongoing behind the scenes for quite a while and we are now approaching a time when that development will begin to bear fruit.

One of the new developments includes a new HTML-local-host Wallet GUI to replace the old QT version.   The plan is to first release a basic port, in terms of features, of the original QT wallet and then add additional features/enhancements in subsequent versions. The front-end is almost finished and work on the back-end of the wallet will begin soon.

                                                                          

The HTML Wallet will bring a host of new benefits to BTCD users:

-GUI with an updated cutting edge look that is easy to operate  
-Combination of HTML and Native Ramchains allows wallet access using multiple devices
-New tech features, such as Teleport, can easily be added to later client versions
-BTCD tech will make it to the BTCD client first before it becomes available on the SuperNET branded client
-Future in-client access to SuperNET affiliated coins and services

Donation Goal:

We are aiming to raise 10,000 BTCD to help see the current development through to completion.  Not only will your donation help contribute to BitcoinDark development, but also will act as an investment to enhance the future value of BTCD.  

Uses for Donation Funds:

-Back-end GUI development                                           (~2000 BTCD)
-Marketing/PR for upcoming tech releases                     (~2300 BTCD)
-Continued Webmaster and Weekly Blog payments      (~1200 BTCD)
-Hiring additional developers and specialists                (~2500 BTCD)
-Bounties for apps that utilize BitcoinDark tech            (~2000 BTCD)

Please help support BitcoinDark development by sending your donations to the following Official BTCD Donation Address:

Great news for BitcoinDark. Progress is urgently needed. I was a little worried about my BTCD stake the last time.

Great to see the progress the BitcoinDark community has made since the launch.  This effort to organize bounties for expanding development is especially exciting.

I have a few questions about the recently announced request for donations.


- 281K BTCD has passed through the official donation address.  Is there a simple explanation for why such a large amount of BTCD has passed through this address?

- Who is managing the official donation address?

- How will it be decided who gets paid, and how much they get paid?

- James was saying we need manpower for testing more than anything.  Would hiring testers or paying bug bounties fall under the "Hiring additional developers and specialists (~2500 BTCD)" category?

- Can you give an example of how past donations were used to increase the value of BTCD?

- Are the following statements correct?

Each member of the BTCD community is encouraged to donate ~1% of their BTCD holdings for us to meet the goal.  1216485*.01 = 12164 BTCD

If each member of the BTCD community donates ~1% of their BTCD holdings, this money will be invested in increasing the value of the remaining ~99% of their holdings.

@juicybirds: Good Questions:

1) I'm not exactly sure if it is a block explorer error or what, but previously there were at maximum little more than 1k btcd in donations.

2) Torrn is managing the official donation address.  He has been responsible for holding donations and making payouts.

3) This admittedly is an area that can be improved upon going forward, but as of now these decisions are a consensus between me, torrn, and btcddev.  Unless a payment is a promised fixed BTCD amount payments can change as the value of BTCD changes.

4) No, there are no plans to help pay for SuperNET related testing unless the BTCD community calls for it.  The additional developers and specialists category is meant to cover payment to hire developers for core support, GUI support and updates for future versions, and possible specialists in areas such as marketing/promotion.

5) Previous donations were used to pay for the website, webmaster, blogs, and to help kickstart front-end work on the html wallet.

And yes, if everyone donated 1% we would certainly reach our goal  Smiley

edit: As Cassius stated above, we are also working to get a BTC multisig account set up for those that would rather donate BTC instead of BTCD

Thanks xrobesx. That mistake is on me.

I think I accidentally pulled from the front-end developers earlier work and didn't spot the mistake.  English isn't the native language of the guy we have doing the front-end work so there has been numerous spelling/grammar errors that have been fixed from earlier versions.

I'll get those images changed out with the updated versions as soon as possible.

Sent! Hopefully will be able to send some more but I like the idea of supporting with bitcoin, too.

Does anyone know if it's possible to embed messages in the BTCD blockchain, like BTC? Presumably it is, but I haven't seen that in the current client.
Also, average number of blocks per day? Is it 1440 (1 per minute)?
