Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

How to Upgrade?

ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet

Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network.
GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – GroestlcoinSeed Savior

Groestlcoin Seed Savior is a tool for recovering BIP39 seed phrases.
This tool is meant to help users with recovering a slightly incorrect Groestlcoin mnemonic phrase (AKA backup or seed). You can enter an existing BIP39 mnemonic and get derived addresses in various formats.
To find out if one of the suggested addresses is the right one, you can click on the suggested address to check the address' transaction history on a block explorer.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

Groestlcoin EasyVanity 2020 is a windows app built from the ground-up and makes it easier than ever before to create your very own bespoke bech32 address(es) when whilst not connected to the internet.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic bech32 addresses generated by regular Groestlcoin clients, then Groestlcoin EasyVanity2020 is the right choice for you to create a more personalised bech32 address. This 2020 version uses the new VanitySearch to generate not only legacy addresses (F prefix) but also Bech32 addresses (grs1 prefix).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

UPDATED – Groestlcoin Sentinel 3.5.06 (Android)

Groestlcoin Sentinel is a great solution for anyone who wants the convenience and utility of a hot wallet for receiving payments directly into their cold storage (or hardware wallets).
Sentinel accepts XPUB's, YPUB'S, ZPUB's and individual Groestlcoin address. Once added you will be able to view balances, view transactions, and (in the case of XPUB's, YPUB's and ZPUB's) deterministically generate addresses for that wallet.
Groestlcoin Sentinel is a fork of Groestlcoin Samourai Wallet with all spending and transaction building code removed.

It is hoped that Earthcoin will bring new opportunities to the global village economy under the influence of the new crown virus, and the Earthcoin EAC blockchain will build a new global village.

It is hoped that Earthcoin Earthcoin will bring new opportunities to the global village economy under the influence of the new crown virus, and the Earthcoin EAC blockchain will build a new global village.
Everyone becomes a member of the global village via the Internet, but the real world is divided into many countries and regions. National and regional laws, currencies are inconsistent. The advent of blockchain can build a global village.
1: Global Village, EarthCoin
A word that the Global Village heard a long time ago seems to be a bit old now. The rapid development of modern science and technology has reduced the space-time distance on the earth, and international communication has become increasingly frequent and convenient, so the entire earth is like a small village in a vast universe. The global village in the Internet era is imperfect, because only the rapid transmission of information, and other aspects are deeply affected by the real world.
Earth's development of the digital economy is inseparable from Earth Coin EAC! EAC can help users to pay instantly to anyone on the planet. Earthcoin is a global decentralized payment network and digital currency that calculates the value of labor and quantifies the resources of the earth. Inspired by Bitcoin. Earthcoin can perform fast transactions with little or no fees. No login, registration or hidden fees are required. Users receive Earthcoin or send Earthcoin from any Earthcoin address in the world within seconds. Earthcoin uses P2P technology, and there is no central management agency; the network collectively manages transactions and issues Earthcoin. Earthcoin is also open source. Its design is public participation. No one can own or control Earthcoin. It is committed to sustainable and fair development. It calculates labor value and quantifies earth resources. Every earth person can participate.
2: The current global village
In reality, everyone's connection is broken. You have to use your own currency, you have to abide by your country's laws and regulations, and you have to follow a local law to use the local currency when you go to an area. Many things are inefficient because of this split. For example, bank cards: everyone has a lot of bank cards. There is nothing necessary. How many cards are wasteful. If you want to transfer money, the bank is different. If you want to transfer money from two different countries, you have to go through A complex network is very inefficient. Earthcoin is a global decentralized payment network and digital currency that calculates the value of labor and quantifies the resources of the earth. Can completely solve these problems.
3: If the blockchain changes the global village
The above problem is the reason why there is no strong center. If there is only one country and a bank is so big, things can be very efficient. But it is impossible. The United Nations and the World Bank can be political centers and financial centers by name, but the actual situation is not. The actual power is poor. And it may not be a good thing to create such a strong center, Earth Empire? The emergence of the blockchain has created a new possibility without a center! A lot of things need to be done by the strong center, but they are done just as well by going to the center. 1. In the past you needed the government to prove who you are, your mother is your mother, now the blockchain can. 2. In the past, you needed to use different currencies in different countries, and now Bitcoin Geocoin is accepted in any country, regardless of exchange rates.
The short confirmation time of the Earthcoin EAC block gives it infinite potential to extend to payment applications.
Everyone knows that Bitcoin BTC is the most robust and secure currency in the block. Even a few years ago, many investors around the world have used it as a tool for their own wealth transfer and storage. In the field of value storage, its credit is unmatched, which is the fundamental reason for its market value of 1.4 trillion. However, in the global micropayment application, Bitcoin BTC requires 10 minutes for each block confirmation, and 6 blocks can ensure accurate transactions. If you are shopping in the supermarket or participating in remittances, fundraising, etc., you only pay a sum of money. Wait for 10-60 minutes, it will definitely make people restless, don't even think about doing anything.
Earth Coin EAC has a block time of 60 seconds, and 5 blocks can confirm the transaction. Although there is no Alipay and WeChat Express supported by a centralized database, you have realized a point-to-point seamless link payment globally. , Waiting for confirmation within a few minutes is completely acceptable!
At present, the United States and Europe have begun to encircle China's Alipay and WeChat in terms of financial payment, because it is quickly eating away the cake of the cross-border payment of US dollars and euros in the circulation between Southeast Asia and Europe. Zuckerberg, knowing that his Lbria is equivalent to QQ currency ten years ago, but the US government has almost allowed it [to resist the pressure brought by Chinese payments, but if it is to be issued, it will become the Federal Reserve. And the US dollar's grave diggers were ultimately rejected by Congress], they are all centralized in nature, just like Huawei, no matter how good the product quality is, and where the service is in place, but as long as Huawei is found as a centralized organization, it is because of geopolitics between countries. And under economic coercion, bans are banned. But with a payment system developed using pure POW digital currency with a short confirmation time, no government can start, and people in Asia, Europe, Africa and the United States will long to use them to complete transnational payments in the context of globalization.
Four: Summary
This article triggered my thinking on the blockchain. What is the purpose of decentralization and why do many things go to the center! !! !! In a small area, a strong center is enough to accomplish many things efficiently, but when there is no strong center and it is difficult to exist globally, many simple things are very complicated. 1. Online transfer, if there is Alipay, then it will be a few seconds, but if a Chinese person uses Alipay to transfer to an overseas PayPal account, it is a massive project. After a bunch of banks, exchange rates fluctuated and various fees were charged. Blockchain can transfer money in a few minutes like Alipay. The short confirmation time of the Earthcoin EAC block makes it have endless potential to extend to payment applications. 2. Self-certification, you have to prove who you are, you need proof of where you are registered, you ca n’t prove who you are, you ca n’t prove it, but the district Blockchaining your private key can prove who you are. 3. More secure, Alipay transfer is a strong center, which is theoretically very safe, but it is a black box for you. If something goes wrong, if something goes wrong, how do you prove that you transferred, everything depends on the credit of Alipay, but the blockchain depends on It is code, and everyone can view the public code, which is more credible. Blockchain has many limitations. Without a strong center, there is no strong center, but in many cases, there is no strong center, and then a blockchain is necessary. I hope Earthcoin brings new opportunities to the global village economy under the influence of the new crown virus! (Source network)

My bch pruned testnet servers suddenly stopped getting blocks

I have a few bch nodes running on bitcoin-abc v0.16 and v0.17, on my local machine and other servers. They all suddenly stopped getting new blocks at block 1231688. We are around block 1231718 now.
I have tried adding nodes I can find and restarting bitcoind and can't get them to download the newer blocks. My testnet nodes are useless at this point. Does anyone know a way to fix this?
Here are some of the debug.log entries. After the portion below, it says "connect() to failed after select()..." for eternity.

Update: they are caught up now. I am not sure what the exact cause of the delay was besides maybe having to find new nodes to connect to. They were behind for about 24 hours and now it's back to normal.

Solution: Blockchain Voting-- a secure electronic voting framework that we needed yesterday. Voting fraud happens because of 2 things: a) CorruptGov runs elections, b) Inconsistency in voting systems act as 'plausible deniability'.

TL;DR:
These guys claim we're ready for it now, for the 2016 election:
Background
Our government has cheated elections several times and they will continue to cheat and steal the vote so long as we can blame tallies on little old ladies counting the ballots; disenfranchised black people in florida; hacking; "lost" absentee ballots (or suddenly 'found' absentee ballots); diebold voting machines (or whatever they call themselves now); misreporting from the media; supreme court decisions that were wrong (gore v bush) because it was a politically-imbalanced cabinet at the time; and finally the existance of a theivery corporation's ploy called the electoral college as a means to overrule any deep-state-disapproved, democratically-elected republicanism.
These inconsistencies in our voting systems allow a corrupt government to 'get away with it', because 'problems' act as a 'plausible deniability' gambit for fraud. While the Spectacle spins off countless hours of news media coverage over the "possibility of fraud" and election scandals, talking bobble heads gobble on with ineffectual nonsense to a captive audience with the sole intention of selling pharma medications that don't work, food that's not fit to eat, and cars we can't afford. In other words, controversy is commodified: we'll be taking your money, kthanxbye.
Steal elections. 'lections. Make money, money. Steal elections 'lections. Make the money money.
Somewhere in there is a hit rap song.
Enter Blockchain Voting
It's important to enumerate all those problems, not as a whiny rant, but to demonstrate how Bitcoin technology can absolutely free us from these problems and end all controversies, so that we can get back to the task we once had of making this world a freer, better place for all humans everywhere (which is--to my mind--the core assumption of american exceptionalism).
Blockchain
The *Blockchain is an electronic, cryptographic public ledger used in bitcoin to track all transactions that have ever happened. It's used as parity check to prevent double spending (similar to the 90s era ecommerce problem of "click only once"). Anyone using bitcoin has a copy of every transaction that has ever been made. This means that every bitcoin user is part of one giant virtual bitcoin based bank with direct access to the bank's database of transactions. Think about how powerful that is.
It also means that the idea that bitcoin is anonymous that is commonly held (and propagandized by the main stream media as 'a money technology that enables crime') is simply false--its only semi anonymous. This means that bitcoin transactions are all traceable. This is why if you want anonymity, you use an online proxy service to create temporary bitcoin addresses to anonymize yourself, but this only protects you by hiding behind the service itself. There is soon to be a darkweb version of this service which will be a tor hidden service that will not be answerable to any government, and that will ensure true anonymity.
The blockchain is a powerful tool, and people are utilizing the metadata aspect of the blockchain in several creative ways. One in particular is in creating a secure electronic voting framework
These guys claim we're ready for it now, for the 2016 election:
Colors
Bitcoin can create this framework in many ways; but I believe most popularly it would use an exploitation of bitcoin' 'colored coins', 'tagging' coins with a form of metadata. Such as blue or red; business or personal; savings or dailyexpenditures; Hillary or Trump. In the case of bitcoinvoting, the 'value' aspect of the coins would be irrelevant. So one would only have to solve bitcoin for a relatively small number of bitcoins. Given that the smallest unit in BTC is 0.00000001 BTC, only 2 BTC would be needed to enable this, giving each person 0.00000001 BTC; if you used 3-5 BTC, that would be enough for at least the next 100 yrs of voting, given the US population is currently around 318.9M, and less than that would be legal to vote
So in this scenario, casting a vote would entail spending 0.00000001 BTC of Bernie-colored coin or Trump colored coin, to a bitcoin address representing your county's ballot box (or a federal ballot box address). You have a copy of your transaction, so do they, and you have everyone elses's vote, and so do they.
Semi-Anonymity is implicit because bitcoin addresses are just numbers, although they are traceable. This can be resolved fairly easily by using a central server. People will complain and say "who runs the server"? With bitcoin, it doesn't matter... you still have a copy of your vote and can check it. It precludes changing your vote. It elminates this problem entirely.
The 'Registration process' would need to be figured out. It could be the case that 2 bitcoin systems are used, one that registers a voter and another that handles casting votes.
How it Fixes
  1. ) Tally -- blockchain public ledger allows anyone to count the votes -- Fixed!
  2. ) Government changes votes in the database -- blockchain ledger disallows -- Fixed!
  3. ) Voting machine problems -- it's all electronic, consistent with bitcoin voting. All you need is a computer, the open source voting system is security-audited by the public and runs off a CD as a diskless OS. You print a paper wallet and write your vote to it --- fraud = Fixed!
  4. ) Absentee ballots -- no longer exist. You can vote instantly from anywhere in the world -- Fixed!
  5. ) Misreporting from MSM -- can't happen anymore as anyone can call immediate bullshit with software designed to tally based on your blockchain -- Fixed!
  6. ) Supreme Court Decisions -- blockchain won't fix a bad decision from the SCOTUS -- NOT FIXED! Although the people will have perfect evidence to hold the court itself in contempt of court and hold a collective vote of no confidence calling for immediate, permanent disbarrment of all members of SCOTUS from any future government office. Or we shoot them dead.
  7. ) Electoral college -- blockchain won't fix this so long as we have a system that politically upholds a fraudulent misapplication of democracy like this. However it will amplify differences between the two, supporting a narrative that the electoral college is the "Establishment's" vote versus the "people's vote". So it's a NOT FIXED! However, I believe people would like the democracy enabled by blockchain voting that they'd run towards it and admonish the electoral college as perfect manifestation of deep state elitism.
Re: Item #3 above: yes, not everyone has a computer. So you would have to have voting places still, but they would be computer labs connected to the internet or libraries, or your friend's computer...any computer that can boot from CD or USB stick can become a voting machine. There is software that hash-checks the diskimage and writes a certified copy to your media; you boot to it and it turns off every device but monitor, mouse and internet...it connects to internet to check your registration; or you just send your registration and vote info and if you do it again, it will overrule the last vote or ignore it (a decision to make...should you be able to change your mind prior to the election day, by which all votes must be cast and beyond which they won't be counted...
