    RC5 - Spork Ahead!

    Development has been moving along consistently and we’re almost ready to launch. We’re going to be launching RC5 on the 22nd (Next Monday).

    Instant Transactions

    We’re working on a paper describing the instant transaction system, expect that on Friday. We’ll also have more announcements and very detailed development update coming later this week.

    What's included and what's the plan?

    RC5 has a basic version of enforcement built into it that when activated will guarantee masternode payments are present in a block. So far, testing has proven the code is working and we're in the process of working out some of the final issues with it. The code is very simple and when activated the network will simply reject blocks from pools that have not updated.

    Open Source

    Darksend will be open sourced one week after RC5 has been released, September 29th. This will allow updates if needed before the code is released.

    What's Next?

    Darksend is working really nicely with no pressing issues presently. I would like to take some time and implement the Instant Transaction system immediately following release or RC5.

    Well, until now every new RC has brought the price down instead of up......

    Any more details? I fear with no open source this just puts things back to a further date with some new additions here and there right?

    Seeing the first instant transactions on a bitcoin based protocol is an amazing feat of innovation coming from any coin.
    And its the Darkcoin team of all altcoins. Very exciting times with the spork ahead. Good luck fellas!

    "Spork Ahead!" - sounds promising on the enforcement front. :)

    I just hope that Instant transactions will not be the reason to postpone open source.

    He's about to publish a paper on the concept, so I don't believe this time we are hiding anything :)

    Agreed - very important!!!

    I think is very important as I have said in my previous posts is having a press release ready for RC5 launch and Open Source

    Evan, I remember you had written a press release for when bitfinex added DRK - we need something similar.

    This is the time we need the marketing to go into overdrive as it will aid in the adoption of the coin early on immensely.

    Hi Evan, I just wanted to take a moment to talk about your tor like idea. I agree with finishing DarkSend, etc... before delving into other services, however, I want you to know our community came up with pretty much all the promotional information of what the new coin Electrum Ethereum ends to create starting back in March already. Please check this list: https://darkcointalk.org/threads/list-of-future-development-ideas.89/

    We had the ideas first, we are ahead of the game by far, and the only way they can keep up would be to copy *your* code. I think we should be the ones to create web 3.0. Why not? It was our ideas that were spelled out long ago. Please don't slow down after this, and go for it. Thanks for reading!

    Edit: damn my inability to remember stupid names!

    I have a question on enforcement.

    After restarting Darkcoind, payee of getblocktemplate is empty for some period.
    What happens when a pool(on a newly restarted Darkcoind) found a block in this status ?




    Code:
    [email protected]:~> darkcoind getblocktemplate
    {
        "version" : 2,
        "previousblockhash" : "0000000072683e3631418c826b619849a85a114d74e58ff622980178ac21ddda",

    Guys come on, post this update the official darkcoin twitter already! That would be the first place where people will be looking for news after seeing the price rise.

    We don't want a pump and dump scenario. This coin will become a success once everything is ironed out.

    As far as I know, nothing has changed development-wise. I think Kristov just found out about it today, so it's just new to him.
