SFXOS | Plug and Play Safex Cash Operating System for Mining
Last week on Wednesday Safex.org was published with the first blog post that includes a full scale tutorial on selecting hardware, setting it up for mining, and plugging in the
SFXOS a special purpose built operating system for mining Safex Cash.
You can find the full tutorial and download link to the SFXOS software at the safex.org website:
You can tune into the growth of the network hash rate at https://pool.safex.org and if you’re already mining feel free to join there, with a 0% mining fee. We are eager to increase the mining activity within our community and it is a fun way to experience cryptocurrency where you can actually mine full amounts of coins. Help us distribute the mining activity, while we have several hardcore mining participants, and we appreciate all the mining activity on our network.
During last week’s 6.6 testnet we bumped into an edge case that caused network degradation during a purchase transaction. Multiple purchases of the same product triggered a fork in the chain where some rejected the blocks and other accepted the block with the transactions and continued. Igor extended the validation to the mining level so that transactions do not accidentally get plugged into a block that could cause the network to deteriorate.
For example, if you have two transactions buying one product that has only one quantity: the pool is receiving the first transactions, checks if it fits, adds it to the pool ready for mining. Daniel suggested this fix: every time a new block is produced, it will check the validation of transactions in the transaction pool. If any of those are not valid after a new block is added, all invalid transactions will be popped.
Rigorous Transaction Popping Mechanism
The 6.7 Testnet release will be ready on the safexcore github repo, by tomorrow:
That being said, our strict development release schedule demands an additional test to qualify for the Stagenet release.
TWM Wallet | API
Since last week the API is front and center with some adjustments to better interface with an admin panel. The API is intended to serve as a curation layer for whoever operates the API, it also can serve as a website to a webstore where you can host it yourself and add to the authorized list your own username, or the username of the vendors you want to support exclusively. With this admin panel you will be able to offer a web portal that is tailored to your intent of curation, even as a personal web front.
With the additional week due to the 6.7 release, we will also manage to fit in additional CSS improvements that are already underway. We are super grateful to the contributions that the community is putting forward, in this way we will be able to build solid success.
While we face a week delay at this stage, we are still on track to release a mainnet version in the next month or two all depending if we have any show stopping issues, and our schedule incorporates those possibilities.
