Community Portal Maintenance

During the next weeks, we will keep enhancing the community experience here on the portal.

  • New simplified topic structure
  • Introduction of private groups at a later point
  • Editing old posts to match the new topic structure
  • Archiving old and no-longer relevant content

During this process, it's possible that accidentally your post will disappear. If you notice that, you can always reach out to me, and I will promptly ensure it is back online where it should be.

Shurli (Subatomic Swaps) application update - 5 July, 2020

It's been a while I provided update on Shurli.
From last update to this a lot has happened in development side of Shurli.

There hasn't been much noise in public but a consistent development progress happening everyday, where I'm testing and trying new stack of tech to build next version of Shurli using Flutter/Dart/Go language stack which is a lot different as compared to Go/HTML/Js programming stack.

I have been mostly busy testing and verifying the initial architecture decisions that I'm taking to design next version of Shurli application, which are still much underway.

Little I can explain is using new programming stack, I'll be able to manage single code which will provide multiple operating system platform support to run Shurli on, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, iOS, Android and Web. At least the Frontend graphical application will be ready for all platforms to adapt.

A noticeable update I can provide right now is Subatomic Windows support.

Subatomic Windows Support: Windows version of Subatomic, Komodo, and Shurli had been in troubleshooting for a while, and we have been successfully able to make a subatomic swap today on Windows machine using Shurli's first version of Proof of Concept application.

This could have not been possible without many community members who helped in preliminary testing with subatomic swaps. I'd also like to say special thanks to Decker, jl777 and SHossain, who played very important role resolving the Windows subatomic swaps issues.

Swap details:
PIRATE (ARRR) Transaction ID: https://pirate.explorer.dexstats.info/tx/122b63581c461f94e870a6396be1628a77bd7117c45e10908d007bc05c4450b0
Komodo (KMD) Transaction ID: https://www.kmdexplorer.io/tx/a7b3fc1ea569ba1218ba5abfa739094015ffba32d9732766152ae6ea2c674545

 

Shurli Testing: Last month we invited some community members to private test group, but almost nobody who got invited did any test on Linux or Mac OS build of PoC Shurli app. I think the major reason for that is non availability of Windows support of Subatomic swaps, which we got resolved today.

So, I invite anyone to test Shurli on all platforms and welcome your feedback, which you can provide in KMD Discord in #meshbits channel.

Since Shurli is in development, there'll not be any release builds provided and the testers has to build the application to test as per the instructions provided on ReadMe file here: https://github.com/Meshbits/shurli

Please follow the installation instructions for your platform and in case any issue ask in #meshbits channel in KMD Discord.

There are more updates to come and hopefully I'll be able to give those this coming week.

 

Appreciate whoever will participate in testing, and I'm looking forward to hear from you on Shurli.

Weekly Update - June 26, 2020

Another week has passed and we have summarized for you the most important events of the week.

Prof. Dr. B. Gültekin Çetiner, the founder of MarmaraChain (a Komodo Smart Chain project) was live on TV on Kanal34 that was sponsored by Komodo. The TV show was in Turkish, but the MarmaraChain team will work on a translation and will upload it on Youtube. 

Watch the video in Turkish here.

 

Komodo CTO Kadan Stadelmann spoke with Benjamin Pirus from Cointelegraph about the risks of trading on a mobile DEX.

"I don’t think that the risk to a mobile DEX is necessarily higher than that of a DEX accessed through another medium. The risk would vary depending on the user’s device, OS [operating system], version, etc.," says Kadan.

Komodo Business Developer Charles ‘PTYX’ Gonzalez sat down for an excellent interview with Trading Plex. Charles describes Komodo's technology, explains the main purposes of Antara Framework and Delayed PoW (dPoW), and how AtomicDEX and its technology is changing the rules of the game.

Watch the full interview here. 

 

DEVELOPMENT UPDATE

The komodo development team is working hard to implement the features requested by the community. Stay tuned!

 

COMMUNITY & ECOSYSTEM UPDATE

It gives us great pleasure to see that students from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) are developing projects for a university course with Komodo.

In 2018, Komodo established an educational relationship with the University of Texas at Arlington. In 2019 Komodo sponsored an educational hackathon in cooperation with HackUTA. The course, taught by Dr. Sajib Datta, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Strategic Advisor for Komodo Platform, attracted 34 students over two semesters.

Hush

The HUSH team changed some of its Wallet encryption to Blake3. This change allows nearly 15x faster sending, startup encryption, and close encryption. Furthermore, HUSH Chat development is ongoing and the HUSH team has added some goodies like emoji’s to the HushChat.

 

BLOCKCHAIN FUNDAMENTALS

Komodo continued with its Blockchain Fundamentals content series this week with one new interconnected article.
 

The article is about the Scrypt Mining Algorithm. In this article, we explore why Scrypt was invented and how the algorithm has been used by prominent blockchain projects. We will then assess its current effectiveness compared to other Proof of Work consensus algorithms.

Weekly Update - June 19, 2020

Once again, we come to the end of the week and have a chance to take a look at Komodo's current events. This week’s update includes the following topics: the results of the AtomicDEX survey, Komodo’s sponsorship of a Turkish TV show, and a few new Komodo Project Spotlights.

Komodo Network Update

Komodo successfully upgraded the network to daemon version 0.6.0, dubbed Draconic Serpent! The Komodo team would like to extend a warm welcome to all new Notary Node Operators!

One major improvement that came with the Draconic Serpent upgrade is the optimized syncing of the Komodo blockchain, especially for the initial syncing process. The process is now faster and more reliable with recent optimizations and refactoring. 

Another improvement with Komodo v0.6.0 and the new dPoW season is that the Dev Team has audited and updated the Delayed Proof of Work (dPoW) client and Komodo core dependencies. This improves the general dPoW mechanism itself, as the threading system has undergone a code review to ensure the code is free of critical bugs.

AtomicDEX Community Feedback

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the survey. We have evaluated and visualized the results. 

We now prioritize the proposed features and clarify the feasibility with the development team.

BIP-143 Vulnerability for Ledger and Tezos hardware wallets

Security researcher Saleem Rashid discovered the vulnerability that allowed an attacker to have compromised the client software of a user to increase transaction fees without confirmation on the device. The user should be tricked into signing a transaction at least twice, which isn’t an unrealistic scenario because the first transaction can be aborted pretending there was an error. A successful exploitation results in the loss of funds for the user. The attacker can also collude with a miner to profit from the transaction fees.

We thank Komodo developer pbca26 who already patched the KMD claiming tool so that users can continue to claim their rewards securely. 

Ledger vulnerability.

Tezos vulnerability.
