SoftFork – Bugs & Exploits Crushing
Alright so I primarily worked quite a bit this week on the core code behind Stipend, implementing quite a few changes and improvements to both the wallets and the blockchain. My focus primarily was on the soft fork that we had planned, not only helping to stabilize the network but also fixing a possible vulnerability in the code throughout. Make sure to update your wallets/VPS to 1.0.8, otherwise they will not be able to connect to the network come block #112,500! With the upcoming week, I’ll primarily still be working on the blockchain but also implementing a wallet rework, making it much more simplistic and improving UI/UX throughout.
- Reworked Masternode Payments v2 (Fixed) (masternode-payments.cpp/h, main.cpp/h, wallet.cpp/h)
- Fixed PoS Vulnerability (main.cpp/h)
- Increases Outgoing Wallet Connections (net.cpp/h)
- Soft Fork Preparation (main.cpp/h, net.cpp/h)
In order to update with the fork, simply download the new cold (local) wallet for your respective OS (Windows, Mac, Linux), and replace your current wallet. There is no need to delete any files in your data folder, simply replace the current application with the new one.
If you are running a Masternode, simply make sure to update your VPS as well. Simply copy and paste the following line of text into your VPS console if you’re currently located in the same directory as your Stipend daemon. After this, to get your Masternode up and running again, simply restart it from your cold (local) wallet using the “Masternode” tab found within. Let me know if you guys have any problems! I’ll try and help all that I can!:
killall stipendd; sleep 2; sudo rm stipendd; sudo rm ~/.stipend/debug.log; wget https://github.com/Stipend-Developer/stipend/releases/download/1.0.8/precompiled-daemon-1.0.8.zip; unzip precompiled-daemon-1.0.8.zip; rm precompiled-daemon-1.0.8.zip; ./stipendd –daemon; sleep 3; ./stipendd getinfo
Hey all! So in the past week I’ve worked mostly on the chat system. Right now the job can get multiple proposals and you, the client, can decide who you want to invite to the interview. Once you actually invite someone, you’re able to chat with that person (or multiple at a time of course). The idea of course is that even though you’ve received their cover letters, bids and answers to your questions (that you wrote when posting a job) you still might not be certain on who to hire exactly, hence the chat room (“the interview stage“). The video below shows the process as it is currently.
Note: there are still many, many small details I need to work on but because this is weekly update I’ve got to show what we have at the moment! Even the UI needs to be re-worked to look a bit better!
The next thing I’ll work on is the further refinements of the chat system (notifications, people list sorted by time of the latest message, real-time push notification to the navigation bar, etc). Once that’s done, I’ll tackle the hiring aspect next. You, the client, should be able to hire someone straight from the chat window or from the “My offers” page. Upon hiring someone, you’ll be able to alter job detail such as payments, in case the freelancer told you that your budget wasn’t properly set and you two agreed that you want to modify it, for example. Such contract is then sent to the freelancer and he/she is able to accept or decline it. Upon accepting it, he/she is officially hired and the work can begin.
Exchange Listing Situation, Support and Coding!
Well, this week we mainly focused on the new wallet softfork, we had some productive talks with some exchanges and might be interested in the next couple of days/weeks, all the majore exchanges are responding favorably but asking us to reach them after 1 month once the project has over 3 months of it’s life cycle.
But we are still looking for an opportunity, like after some research CryptalDash seems to be a very promising exchange and we will be listed this month “mostly gained awareness of the project with this kind of listings” https://www.cryptaldash.com/new-coin-listing
What was this week about?
I’m still doing support on a daily-basis, building-up some MN for people with teamviewer, solving daily issues and supporting the discord.
As community manager, I also started bringing people to our official Reddit, so as to get more followers and a good activity over there.
On the coding side, went through blockchain code and I am trying new features for wallets in local, that might be released later on.
I also did some fixes on the website & on the official explorer (which was down for few hours this week).
What will next week be about?
Support will continue, but there are less and less issues in this area.
This week will be about listings & investors relations mostly, as we are in contact with investors and exchanges.
Daily stuff will continue as well this week, support, codes, improvement, features test, ideas, whitepaper.
