Marketplace Stagenet Live Demonstration - Belgrade December 7th 2019
On Saturday at the Faculty of Economics in Belgrade, Igor and Daniel bought and sold items on the live
stagenet. They presented the
safex offer listing and
safex purchase features that enable people with accounts to sell items. Igor then bought the item from Daniel’s
twmseller account that listed a rocketship keychain to the blockchain.
This was a part of the Belgrade Blockchain Summit for 2019
Afterwards we saw that the listing was set to inactive since its stock was depleted as there were only 1 quantity of that particular item available.
You can watch this as it was taking place live here on this tweet posted by Marija from the Belgrade Crypto Community: https://twitter.com/Belgrade_Crypto/status/1203235759769227264
This is a live feed into the blockchain operating on the stage net, with actual product listings, price in sfx, and accompanying information. This is stored and cleared directly on the safex blockchain and a quick demonstration of a visual interface that connects to the blockchain to present this data. Including registered accounts.

The blockchain system used in this demonstration is being polished during this week for release on testnet 3.
The grace period run has been finished. The final count of migrated Safe Exchange Coins into Safex Tokens is 1,641,289,609. You can see the migrated total on the Safex Block Explorer.
We have had the window of migration open for nearly 13 months. And once again huge thanks to @aussiesloth and the entire community who helped participate in making it through for each other.
Marketplace: Testnet 3
In the past week Igor completed wired up the safex purchase feature to the command line interface. More is on the stack to be done to wrap up the command line interface to be consumed by more of us. This is in preparation for testnet 3 where we will have access to
- safex offers
- safex purchase
- token staking
- token redemption
These are the final building blocks to establish a protocol for buying and selling over the blockchain. Let’s do this.
We are targeting a hard stop on Thursday to bring the development to port and compile binaries which we can all set up and connect to.
Last weeks development revealed several quirks in the flow that Daniel and Edoardo collaborated over to resolve. The balance check bug was merged to the main stream of development and the bug related to syncing were resolved so now the wallet is synchronizing properly and consistently.
Here is a screenshot of a fully loaded wallet. The interface is in a development state, with most of the functionality needed, just needs to be arranged smartly.
Remaining tasks to resolve on the gosafex: transaction forming has a bug in signing transactions, and new wallet creation errors out spontaneously where keys are formed though they mismatch.
The Sails gui already is in a great state so far. It is successfully importing keys from the previous wallet version and it is synchronizing with the main blockchain and fetching balances. The transaction frames are left to resolve.
This week Daniel will clean up the development aspects of the Sails wallet code base and upload it to github. With the transactions bugs resolved then we will be able to do some live testing.

RandomSFX Mining Algorithm Transition
During the past week we’ve seen a smooth transition into the new CPU focused mining algorithm we call RandomSFX. Despite a small bug during some block production events, we have isolated the issue and have prepared a patch to get everyone mining consistently.
From our observations it seems to affect miners using external mining software like Safex-Rig and the various mining pools. In some cases, miners using the native built-in miner (via start_mining command) are less affected.
Whilst we are preparing a patch for this bug, we recommend you just continue pointing your miner to your selected node or pool, and wait out the errors. Safex Rig is programmed to auto-reconnect one the “issue block” passes.
Why not join our mining community in the Safex Discord? It’s been very active over the past week and many first time miners have got involved in their first steps towards mining their own stash of safex cash while helping the Safex network produce blocks!
