What about this blog is? Introductory remarks

I'm in crypto from 2014 as investor and trader. Most of my activity is connected with studying material and tracking all the news and updates of the projects I'm interested in. Firstly, it was silent work and I was doing it alone. Later I met a lot of people and some of them became my friends. We did some stuff together and shared gains or losses along. What is important - despite your are doing this on your own or following someone else advice - you are always responsible for your decisions. You shouldn't follow me because I know that everyone has his own trading and investing strategy. So, why this blog matters? 1. I'm sharing with you breaking news and updates that COULD (but not necessarily) affect market. 2. I will discuss most promising projects from my point of view and I will invest in them. You can track my investments and get informed on my further decisions. 3. I'm preparing myself for CRYPTO RUN - investing defined sum of BTC in cryptocurrencies for determined period. 4. I will show indexes of my gains and losses and I will also share with you more interesting anlyses of market. Follow me if you consider yourself as crypto investor and crypto trader. I think you can get get something intereting here.
Tips for the current project are welcome: BTC address: 1MDVdQPPE9xp7djzpUUyAUELuLQiekdNPc

Reddcoin Roadmap 2016-2017

Executive Summary During the summer of 2016, Reddcoin saw a major update to the network through the release of the v2.0 Core wallet. Features included in the release pave the way for Reddcoin to be made more accessible and to encourage widespread adoption. V2.0 also introduces several security fixes, notably the enforcing of strict DER signatures and validation rules (Bitcoin Improvement Proposal – BIP66). The code base has moved from Litecoin, with Reddcoin becoming a fork of Bitcoin, based on the v0.9 branch. This grants Reddcoin direct access to upstream features and fixes coming from Bitcoin development. With this major work now complete and adoption of v2.0 steadily increasing, the attention of the Reddcoin team now turns to the road ahead. Beyond developing a blockchain, the team is planning a broad ecosystem of applications that will realise the vision of Reddcoin – the Social Currency. This document presents the 2016-2017 roadmap detailing Reddcoin development goals and objectives over the next 18 months. The outline of core objectives are made along a timeline with milestones to measure and validate healthy progress. Reddcoin Status Report Over the past year there has been significant work done at the Core wallet level to provide a stable blockchain ready to support various applications and features as development continues. Upgrades include a rebase from Bitcoin Core, the inclusion of strict DER signatures to further secure transactions and close possible attack vectors (BIP66), the ability to store data on the blockchain through OP_RETURN with a 80-byte limit, as well as numerous security upgrades and bug fixes taken from Bitcoin Core. Over the past 18 months, additional infrastructure has also been implemented and planned (new DNSSeed node, new Electrum server nodes, implementation of testnet network). As features continue to be added further extensions of infrastructure will be required. While the core team will provide some of this infrastructure, the broader community will also be encouraged to become involved. The core team will be available at all times to provide guidance if requested. The Reddcoin team maintains a strong proactive attitude. Contact is being made and maintained with third-party teams who are planning or who have already implemented various services for Reddcoin. For the long-term viability of the project, it is essential to engage with other groups who have taken or who will take the time to support Reddcoin in their endeavours. The Reddcoin team has been engaging with the broader community and working with local groups in non-English speaking locations to establish local (non-English) information portals. Recently both the Chinese and Italian Reddcoin communities have launched websites, forums and blogs. The next priorities aim to expand the functionality of Reddcoin while maintaining the integrity of the Core software and blockchain. The team will continue to forge relationships with the broader community as it identifies possible collaborative exercises. Regular updates will be made by the team to keep the community informed about ongoing development. The focus is on building an ecosystem that reaches beyond the blockchain. One that allows Reddcoin to operate on a flexible platform which the average person is able to use to earn support and to show appreciation. As it builds Reddcoin into a resource through which to express appreciation the Reddcoin team is working to make adoption easy for the broader community and the average social network user. Reddcoin Fund Raising Maintaining and developing Reddcoin as a global digital currency incurs various regular and one-off expenses. The Reddcoin team now accepts donations from the community to help cover the ongoing cost of hosting servers, operational expenses, advertising, developer support and special promotions. Reddcoin donations received are hosted at the following addresses, which are also enabled for staking. Community support of Reddcoin via donations is appreciated and useful.

Glasgow University students will use the SAFENetwork to study and create next generation internet applications

Glasgow University Students to Explore the Future of Internet Technology
MaidSafe’s SAFE Network used to Study and Create Next Generation Internet Applications Troon, Scotland, September 29th 2016 - Since its inception in 1451, Glasgow University has built a worldwide reputation as a centre for innovations which have had a profound effect on the world. Its famous alumni have included John Logie Baird, Lord Kelvin and Adam Smith, whose global impact has left a lasting impression on the world we live in today. Continuing the trend, Glasgow University Computing Science Students will be exposed to the latest in decentralised networking technology as MaidSafe’s SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network puts them at the forefront of research and development into next generation Internet applications. Students within the computer science department, under the guidance of Dr Inah Omoronyia, Lecturer in Software Engineering and Information Security, will work with the MaidSafe team, led by Scottish Engineer David Irvine. They will provide students guidance in building apps on top of the company’s platform, a secure and decentralised data and communications network that replaces the world’s data centres and servers with the spare computing capacity of the networks users. This comes at a time of great debate about the future of the Internet with leading academics, including the founder of the worldwide web Sir Tim Berners-Lee, seeking to improve the security and privacy offered to users. The SAFE Network provides a zero cost infrastructure for students and the current APIs enable the creation of storage and email applications. This functionality is laid out to developers in tutorials created by the company, and this will be expanded over the next few months as MaidSafe release tutorials every 2 weeks, providing increasingly more complex functionality to application developers. MaidSafe CEO, David Irvine, commented on the partnership; “We are delighted to be working with a university with such a rich heritage and we very much look forward to using the applications created by their students. Where better to push the envelope of evolutionary thinking than the country that Voltaire opined “We look to Scotland for all our ideas of civilisation”. Glasgow University has an excellent opportunity to be at the forefront of research and development in the field of Internet technologies, alongside the likes of MIT, which will further enhance its reputation - and that of Scotland - as a source of cutting edge innovation.” Glasgow University has one of the leading computing science departments in the UK and is ranked amongst the top 100 in the world. Lecturer in Software Engineering and Information Security, Dr Inah Omoronyia confirmed “It’s a great opportunity for our students at Glasgow University to get hands-on experience with building apps for the SAFE network. Security and privacy functions is now core to modern day software systems; our students are really excited to learn new ways of building such systems using cutting-edge technology.” Contact Information Nick Lambert Chief Operating Officer MaidSafe pr@maidsafe.net +44 1292 317 311 About MaidSafe Started in 2006 by Scottish engineer David Irvine, MaidSafe is a team, comprised of thinkers, inventors, tinkerers, PHDs, engineers and designers, who share a mission to provide security and privacy for everyone. MaidSafe has developed The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network, which is made up of the unused hard drive space, processing power and data connection of its users. It offers a level of security and privacy not currently available on the existing Internet and turns the tables on companies, putting users in control of their data, rather than trusting it to organisations.
