Blockchain Developer Update - 2019 Week 21 Blockchain Standardization

myloMay 21, 2019

This series of posts is the Tech Tuesday Blockchain Developer Update. Along with Komodo's Five Bullet Fridays weekly newsletter, Tech Tuesday Blockchain Developer Update is another weekly piece of content to look forward to.

In case you’ve missed a previous edition and want to catch up, you can find all the previous Tech Tuesday updates here.

It is the dawn of a consensus-based economy of blockchains and blockchain services built on Komodo’s pioneering lead & further enhanced by Verus. An entity can maintain complete independence in a scalable, decentralized, interoperable, programmable & consensus-based economy.  For this week, the highlight is the effort towards blockchain standardization.

Algorithmic Stable Coins

Komodo’s ecosystem developments seem to be accelerating! Verus Coin Lead Developer Mike Toutonghi recently responded to a question in Discord about an algorithmic stable coin with:

...don’t expect that to be an option for the first PBaaS release. A reserve chain can be a stable coin relative to Verus, making an algorithmically fiat-stable coin is also possible….

In week 18 of Tech Tuesday, I made a friendly comparison of the Verus & Komodo approaches to multi-chain and their lead developers.

In week 16 of Tech Tuesday, synthetic prices of the stock market in a cryptocurrency as well as foreign exchange for financial instrument development.

Secure market feeds into the blockchain network can be done through decentralized oracles - removing any single points of failure to robust finance applications.

Cross-chain, Automated, Merge Mineable & Stakeable PBaaS by Verus

Hours ago in an ANN on discord, Mike Toutonghi announced the one year anniversary of the Verus mainnet launch this week. With the announcement the public can now define, start, run, merge mine, stake and auto-cross notarize many chains as part of the Verus testnet in both CLI & GUI form.

Using new merkle mountain range (MMR) implementations, the PBaaS is nothing short of brilliant:

  • Auto-notarizing consensus algorithm
  • Inter-node RPC
  • zk-SNARKs
  • FPGA & CPU mineable for decentralized security
  • Stakeable
  • 51% hash attack resistant

Call For ISO Blockchain Standardization

Komodo is committed to interoperability with innovations in peer to peer orderbooks and atomic trading of cryptocurrency. The development of a custom consensus framework with an IETF crypto condition standard in the core allows Komodo the freedom to innovate in a bear market (part 1, part 2, part 3).

As can be seen by the development of Verus & Mike Toutonghi, the multi-chain paradigm can be built out in more than one way. This existing collaboration enables the Komodo ecosystem to build on foundations of giants. We have opened public discussion to register interest for ISO blockchain standardization & interoperability.

CHIPS P2P Poker Installer

Within the Komodo ecosystem, one project uses the Lightning Network for the purpose of microtransactions.   The use case is for blockchain based poker. The project name is CHIPS.

This week, the first beta version of a community script installer for CHIPS, a p2p poker project within the Komodo ecosystem, became available. CHIPS features the Lightning Network for microtransactions between poker dealer and a poker player. CHIPS discord invite is here.

K64 Now Secured With dPoW

Komodore Games receives a lot of encouraging support from the Komodo community.  K64 is a pre-mine chain that is being secured by the decentralized blockchain security service of dPoW (delayed proof of work). The integration work is managed by Chainmakers. The K64 chain represents two key aspects for game developers that choose Komodo:

More news from Komodore Games will come leading up to their expo on June 29 in The Netherlands. Komodo GM & RedFOX Labs CEO Ben Fairbank will be there as well as some notary node operator representatives and the European community members.

Also receiving dPoW security recently is the Koinon project, with integration work managed by ChainZilla.

ChainZilla Updates Chameleon Pay

Recently elected as a Notary Node Operator, ChainZilla manages the development of their own multi-coin wallet, Chameleon Pay. The update release announcement is on the ChainZilla medium blog.
