Has anyone noticed what just appeared at the CBX block explorer today?

As announced earlier, we have found the culprit in the hashing problem and have been able to fully sync the new codebase Vault 3.0.0 (without any help, without a bootstrap), and run it side by side with the other Crypto Bullion nodes on the network; this part of the job is finally a done deal!

I know I have been promising an alpha test release for the longuest time so indeed we will have something we need to have you try out soon - what we need to test at different locations is making sure this new codebase will sync without any issues everywhere.

What is technically left to do until we Vault 3.0.0 is complete?   Windows compilation, support for PoW miner (for testnet only!), create a file to manage the map of block mutex, addition, suppression, check, etc...;
Migrate current codebase to Zerocoin, pictures update, implement a better startup system for masternodes, implement a Qt Wallet launcher, add the hardfork logic in the code, add a customizable message in the Qt wallet.
On protocol switch (hardfork) activation, change VerifyScript2 to VerifyScript.

Things are definitely moving, but we are not finished yet; most importantly, we did not lose too much time with the hashing issue.

Roadmap 2017-2018 status report!


Latest progresses include the following:

- we added the Bootstrap loading tool directly in a Vault menu; also we provided a default-checked option that automatically download the bootstrap upon launching Vault 3 for the first time was added to the installer.

- masternode operations are being tested internally, making sure that no more than 125 BPN's can operate at any time, done through "mutex",

- we are applying final touches to dialog text strings in 4 languages,

- most of the development work is carried out in Linux environment, we still have to succesfully compile the new codebase Vault in Windows/MacOs environments; this is an important next step.

No new major problems have been encountered yet with new codebase, you will see Vault 3.0.0 pop on and off at the blockexplorer as we are testing each new feature.

Happy New Year 2018, Bullionaires!

2017 has been a good year for Crypto Bullion, many lingering issues have been resolved. In 2018 Crypto Bullion, perhaps soon to be "Bullion", may be the ideal cryptocurrency for the next big turnaround - May 2018 be the year of the Bullion!

I wish all my fellow Bullionaires prosperity, and most importantly, the required health to enjoy it!

Happy New Year!

Roadmap 2017-2018 status report!

Development of Vault 3.0.0 is back on track, after the expected slow-down caused by the Christmas period holidays. Three points today:

We are now testing the staking capability, with a live test on the actual CBX blockchain; just a question of time before our Vault 3.0.0 generates a block so we can establish that everything worked as expected. This testing is important and will go on for a few more days.

Secondly, we are cleaning up the expected RPC functions, so that all RPC calls to Vault 3.0.0 daemon will respond exactly like for Vault 2.4.3. Also, a few functions of the CBX console were buggy so we are cleaning that up too.

Third, from a few days staking experience, we now can tell more precisely that the Vault actually needs 1.1 gig of RAM to run when staking; the important thing is that this amount of RAM is now stable.

And that's what we have, for now.

Roadmap 2017-2018 status report!

Development of Vault 3.0.0 continues, as promised, and as I am always in touch with Cryptopia and our coding team here are the latest developments:

1) After discussing with a few officers from Cryptopia and confirming with them that CBX Vault 3 will not be a swap, we have now 99.5% chance of implementing our desired name change with new logo. I still did not get the final OK however, as we all know Cryptopia's responsiveness has suffered greatly recently. I know my way around with Cryptopia to get things done, just right now they are really swamped.

2) In the previous update, I revealed that we were testing the staking capability of Vault 3; in this test we hit a bug however, our new codebase Vault 3 is somehow infringing one or more rules when attempting to form new blocks, and existing Vault 2.4.3s are rejecting blocks generated by Vault 3. We are conducting extensive tests to find out what rules are being infringed and how to solve this issue.

3) We were able to successfully compile the new Vault 3 code for Windows OS, so this is a major step.

4) Current Vault 2.4.3's loading time has been greatly reduced in Vault 3, using the fastindex function instead of making the Vault extensively recheck things that were checked already, on every launch. Vault 3 launches in under 1 minute now, close to 15 seconds on a SSD drive.

That's it for now, enjoy the rest of the week!
