Community Superblock: 1555200 Please vote!

It’s time to vote for the latest proposals!

Please note: Voting has changed with the release of Blocknet Comet. Please view the updated requirements regarding voting here.

There is a great responsibility for the community to vote either “yes,” or “no,” on the proposals. It cannot be emphasised enough how much the proposal authors and the Blocknet team relies on the community to vote on project proposals to ensure continued funding for development of the Blocknet.

The proposals for superblock 1555200 can be viewed below or on the forumhere . Please note, proposals are being submitted individually so please make sure you scroll down and take your time to look over each proposal. For any late proposals please check the forum above.

In the latest wallet voting is now much easier. Navigate to the proposal area:

Open the wallet and in the side menu, go to Proposals. The wallet needs to be unlocked to cast votes. The Proposals screen shows all the proposals submitted to the network. Above the list of proposals there is an option to filter by Upcoming, which displays the proposals that can currently be voted on. Select this filter to view all proposals currently open for voting.

Review the proposals and the amount requested. It’s a good idea to consider the total Superblock budget, the other proposals amounts requested, the priorities of the project, and if the proposal aligns with those priorities and greater vision of the project. The link for each proposal should lead to a description of what the proposal is for with some background information and objectives. The voting system will automatically calculate how many votes you have available according to your balance (1 vote per 5000 BLOCK) and cast your full vote weight when voting (5562 BLOCK balance = 1 vote, 49635 BLOCK balance = 9 votes.

When ready to vote on a proposal, select the Vote button. A popup will appear that will be used to vote from. Select whether you’d like to approve the proposal (Yes) or vote against the proposal (No). After you have selected how you wish to vote, select the Vote button. This registers your vote to the network after the vote transaction has 1 confirmation (about 1 minute). Once you have voted you can change your vote by selecting the Change Vote button and selecting you new vote.

Voting Complete!

  1. Repeat this process for every proposal you are voting for.
  2. Your vote is not counted until the voting transaction fee has 1 confirmation (typically 1 minute), after which your votes will be accounted for.
  3. If you spend any of your 5000 BLOCK inputs after you vote, the vote is marked invalid and you will need to cast your vote(s) again.
  4. If you are staking, your vote will automatically re-cast.

     — as easiest explanation, boundary features are very useful when you wanna from dxmakerbot to stop working when price of configured asset goes out of boundary (maximum minimum). Like to prevent selling BLOCK under specific or relative price.
     — all new stuff already in community testing pre-beta, details in commit https://github.com/nnmfnwl7/dxmakerbot/commit/7e164021d6a517b1825f49eb150601f4d4ff0e80
  • fazer-dxmbot-006
     — research, development, testing, bugfixing, support, code refactoring, repeat, 24/7 bot running and analysis, block dx liquidity support
     — working on dynamic spread(slide) feature fix and update. New params — slidedyntype ‘relative’/‘static’ and — slidedynzero for asymetric dynamic spread(slide) balance. Dynamic slide is functionality which can dynamically update slide when market center price still have no action but one side selling/buying already started. As bot detect unbalanced sells/buys it automatically move order price with dynamic slide as is it configured from +0 dynamic slide up to +max dynamic slide at specified amount.
     — updated internal balance measurement as total, reserved=locked by orders, available=left.
  • fazer-dxmbot-007
     — working on <–sellstartmin> and <–sellendmin> which are dynamic order size/dynamic taker size/partial orders.
     — Dynamic order size means, if there is not enough funds to add order with default size by <sellstart (size of first order)> <sellend (size of last order)>, bot will recompute highest size which is available to create and also must meets required minimum order size provided by <–sellstartmin> and <–sellendmin> For example if your bot is configured like < sellstart 300> < sellend 100> < sellstartmin 100> < sellendmin 50> <maxopen 3>. By default will bot try to create 3 orders: 1# maker with size 300, 2# maker with size 150 and 3# maker with size 100. If orders are somehow done, and there is not enough funds to create order ie. 1# at size 300, but available only 51, bot will not create 1# also 2# but last order which is at <sellend 100> < sellendmin 50> and maker size meets minium 50, so order at maker size 51-txfee will be created.
     — Partial orders means, to cooperate with upcoming BlockDX partial orders feature.
     — Dynamic taker size is to cooperate with upcoming makerbot <–takerbot> feature.
     — working on <–takerbot> feature. to “Keep checking for possible partial orders which meets requirements(size, price) and accept that orders.”
     ‘If this feature is enabled, takerbot is automatically searching for orders at size between < sellstart-sellend>…< sellstartmin-sellendmin> and at price < slidestart-slideend>+< dynamic slide>*< price> and higher.’
     ‘This feature can be also understood as higher layer implementation of limit order feature on top of atomic swaps on BlockDX exchange, because Takerbot can possible cancel multiple opened orders to autotake orders which meets requirements’
     ‘(I.e. value 30 means check every 30 seconds)’
     ‘By default this feature is disabled.’
     — as always research, development, testing, bugfixing, support, code refactoring, repeat, 24/7 bot running and analysis, block dx liquidity support
  • fazer-dxmbot-008
     — at summary: research, development, testing, bugfixing, support, code refactoring, repeat, 24/7 bot running and analysis, block dx liquidity support
     — what consumes lots if time was manual testing upcoming features
     — added <–sellstartmin>, <–sellendmin>, <–takerbot>, <–delayinternalerror>, <–delayinternalcycle>
     — added dxmakerbot v2 commented configuration examples as howto/examples/bot_v2_sell_block_buy_ltc.py and howto/examples/bot_v2_sell_ltc_buy_block.py
     — refactoring and fixing <–boundary> feature
     — fixed bug which was causing dxmakerbot crash when no virtual orders created when takerbot enabled

PLEASE READ
All next followed features list will be prioritized on the fly by research and development of dxmakerbot. Done/in testing updates of this “rolling up” proposal are moved from Overview: to Previous Work: section.

Overview:

  • Purpose of this proposal is to continue with dxmakerbot research, development, testing, bugfixing, support, code refactoring and rolling-up new features and makerbot versions.
  • possible features/work to be done:
  • add more dxmakerbot events/features(exit bot events, reset order events, reopen order events, wait order events)
  • add save and restore orders from file
  • save orders to db before exit, dxmakerbot session will be able to cancel only session specified orders on reconfig/exit/crash
  • update configuration verification if missing something to be more user friendly
  • analyze update_balances_unspent() and update_balances_left() possibility
  • update dxmakerbot and XBridge API to handle UTXOs:
     — details about this feature is included in previous proposals DOCS.
  • PUMP/DUMP auto management, feature is expected in V3 makerbot
  • autodetect and precompute possible next pump
  • dxtakerbot/dxmakerbot automatically selling all coins of wallet which is detected as going to dump…
  • feature is to automatically compute top price of next pump and cover it.
  • feature to opposite dxbot side to detect pump/dump to disable dxbot to not make a loss.
  • add logarithmic/exponential/normal staggered mods for orders size and price
  • educational examples & info-graphics & video tutorials how to use dxmakerbot
  • release makerbot v3 which will be complex fileconfig BlockDX maker/taker bot with pre-configured multiple strategies which will be automatically executed/stopped by hiting conditions to ie: auto long, short, stabilize price.
  • mirroring open orders from external exchanges
  • staggered orders row/valley/hill + log/exp/linear.

I believe that i gives you many reasons to vote up this proposal to continue dxmakerbot development and all stuff around.
Thanks for your time & MTFBWY
Hopefully see you later on upcoming dxmakerbot development.

Proposal Name: fazer-liquidity-001 Owner: Fazer

Cost: 1500–3500 BLOCK(fazer) (100% to 24/7 liquidity) BLOCK

Proposal: DX Maker bot liquidity

Previous Work:

  • dxmakerbot research and development
     — details in fazer-dxmbot-001 to fazer-dxmbot-008 proposals

Overview:

  • providing 24/7 liquidity by running dxmakerbot on BlockDX
  • running with takerbot feature enabled on 15 seconds
  • 100% of funds will be pushed into liquidity
  • expectations are that bot will be running swaps for a months until goes to ~zero
  • running BLOCK-LTC BLOCK-BTC pairs chosen on the fly by community needs.
  • possible to reserve some BTC-LTC to run also this pair
  • timing is important, needs to have systems configured and ready before lite wallet release, so right timing to start it right with light wallet release
  • liquidity bot orders can be possibly marked by special number like ending with NNN.0008466 to users know ascii 84-T 66-B as Takerbot enabled orders.
  • liquidity must be configured to do not affect users running bot nor moving price down
  • maybe good start before Light wallet release is to slow sell half of funds, for example BLOCK to LTC and be ready for Light wallet release

Proposal Name: infinity7592_1555200 Owner: Infinity7592

Cost: 385 BLOCK

Proposal: Ledger

  • My last month’s proposal was rejected, imho for wrong reasons.
    I would have prefered that any concern about ledger work to be discussed, instead of rejecting my proposal.
  • Here is my position: Conditions are NOT met imho for any widespread ledger release, because it would CURRENTLY be risky ; support from the ledger team is subpar, browser connectivity is patchy, …
  • There is therefore a risk of sometimes not being able to access funds ; and little to no support. Many Windows users from other crypto projects had to resort to workarounds to move their cryptos for several months.
  • I seriously doubt that the optimal solution would be to release an unreliable and unsupported app, just for the sake of releasing something ; best option, from my point of view, is following the situation and waiting for a more robust solution.
  • If the current proposal is rejected, all previously testing and work will have to be given up on my side (this is not a threat at all, but it is obvious
     I won’t commit any time to this for free). Regards.

Proposal Name: michael-dev-aug Owner: michael

Cost: 12500 BLOCK

Proposal: Core Development

July recap
Blocknet Comet v4.3 will be released very soon! This release includes support for partial orders. I added support for BCH and cash addresses as well as support for other coins (BTG, BCD, DVT). I improved the service node fee protocol hardening it against various DoS attacks. I added support for persistent XBridge orders as well as a Governance database for faster wallet load times. I improve the Proposal screen performance. I improved the XBridge order system enabling it to recover orders when rebooting while orders are in non-cancelable refund and redeem states. Block DX v1.8 will also be released soon, which includes performance improvements that I implemented in the rpc layer. Code commits for the latest efforts can be reviewed here: https://github.com/blocknetdx/blocknet/commits/master. I open sourced the Golang XRouter library which can be reviewed here: https://github.com/blocknetdx/go-xrouter. I am currently overseeing the development of the Litewallet UI and we are working to release a beta in the coming weeks.

July & August Development Overview
I will continue managing the development of the Litewallet UI and working on the XBridge order system. I will be working on Litewallet integrations for sending coin. I will be developing the libraries required to support XBridge and XRouter integration into javascript dapps like Block DX and the Litewallet UI.

Current tasks

  • Litewallet UI transaction framework
  • XBridge order system additions (conf times and fees)
  • XRouter JS library
  • Bug fixes and optimizations
  • XRouter C++/GoLang library (COMPLETE)
  • XBridge persistent storage (COMPLETE)
  • Governance system persistent storage (COMPLETE)

Other tasks

  • Maintenance and bug fixes on Blocknet products (XBridge, XRouter, XCloud, Block DX)

Proposal Name: xvault-blocknet-litewallet-and-mobile Owner: hanniabu

Cost: 6800 BLOCK

Proposal: XVault Blocknet Litewallet and Mobile

Overview:
Blocknet is working in partnership with CloudChains Inc. to develop the litewallet UI. Due to the importance of the litewallet, we believe it is best to develop the UI in-house. The Blocknet team has significant experience and developing the app ourselves allows for faster, more efficient development and better quality control. Having the app built in-house also provides us full end-to-end control for quick iterations, upgrades, and codebase architecture and design. The app is being built with cross-platform and maintainability in mind so a majority of the codebase for the desktop app will be reusable for the future mobile app. This proposal covers the cost for the development of a desktop litewallet app and the design of the mobile app.

View Litewallet Desktop Design

Current Status:

  • A desktop design has already been created by @shorn, generously paid for in donations from @fattox and @aderks
  • Development of the litewallet desktop UI has already begun. The app framework and sidebar panel have been completed and can be seen below
  • FYI the name (XVault) is not finalized

Deliverables:

  • An open source, functional, and user-friendly litewallet app built with React, Redux, and Electron.
  • An open source UX/UI visual design for the mobile litewallet app with all assets included.

Timeline:

  • Development of the desktop litewallet app is expected to be completed by the end of August.
  • The mobile litewallet design is expected is expected to be completed by the end of August.

Cost:

  • Development — 4000 BLOCK
  • Visual Design — 2800 BLOCK
  • Total — 6800 BLOCK

If anybody has any questions or concerns, please feel free to comment here or as in our Telegram or Discord.
