UASF Bitcoin: a Crypto Guide for Beginners and not

Yesterday we published the image below on Facebook, related to UASF Bitcoin we support. But what does it mean?

uasf bitcoin

What is UASF Bitcoin?

UASF is an abbreviation that stands for User Activated Soft Fork.

It’s a mechanism for the activation of a soft fork that might occur on a specified time enforced by full nodes, a concept that is also called “economic majority”.

In the past years, a UASF was successfully developed to activate the P2SH soft fork (BIP16).

Instead, currently, the UASF is combined with the so-called SegWit activation in the BIP148 proposal you can read here: github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0148.mediawiki.

What is a MASF?

MASF means Miner Activated Soft Fork. It’s a system by which miners can trigger the activation of a soft fork when a majority decides to execute an upgrade. This allows a faster activation of the soft fork, leaving full nodes to upgrade when they decide to do it.

This mechanism is a tradeoff because it puts trust in the hash power,  enforcing the new rules. Conversely, it can cause invalid chains. This was the case with BIP66.

What is BIP148?

BIP148 is a UASF designed to run the current SegWit MASF deployment in order to activate it in all the existing SegWit capable node software (80% + at this time).

From August 1st, 2017, miners have to signal their readiness for SegWit creating blocks with the version bit 1.

What is Segwit?

SegWit is an upgrade to the bitcoin blockchain that might be able to solve the so-called block size debate, by increasing the capacity of each block of the digital currency chain in order to allow more transactions in less time and with fewer fees to be executed and registered on the blockchain itself.

Right now, Bitcoin supports up to 2000 transactions per block in 10 minutes, but SegWit will be able to double this capacity up to 4000 transactions.

Syscoin’s value derived from the decentralized services it provides on the blockchain, a decentralized system of record hosted by a series of “nodes” on the Syscoin network.

Syscoin 1.0 was the first decentralized marketplace and a script algorithm altcoin based on Litecoin. The original whitepaper[3] included Decentralized Marketplace Creation, Decentralized Smart Contracts and Documents, Decentralized Certificate Issuance and Transfer and Decentralized Data Storage and Retrieval. Some of these services were available upon launch but only accessible through a command-line interface.

The original whitepaper included:

  • Decentralized Marketplace Creation,
  • Decentralized Smart Contracts and Documents,
  • Decentralized Certificate Issuance and Transfer
  • Decentralized Data Storage and Retrieval.

Syscoin presale began on July 19, 2014. Back at that time, the ICO price was .00000518 BTC/SYS and it raised 1500 BTC.

    Ether Price passes $100: how to store Ethereum

    Ether price, or the digital currency that fuels the world’s second-greatest blockchain network – Ethereum – reached a value of $100 today.

    This means that Ether price hits its new all-time high today.

    With a growth of more than 25% over one day only, the Ether price has now increased more than 1,000% during the last year: on January 1st, in fact, it was trading at about $8.

    At the moment, while I’m writing this article, the digital currency has a market cap of about $9bn, according to data provided by Coinmarketcap.

    Why Ether price is growing

    This new all time high comes now when the Ethereum blockchain is fast gaining interest by open-source innovators and financial firms worldwide.

    Ethereum became important as the main blockchain used for initial coin offerings (ICO, a process by which people working on blockchain-related projects can sell tokens with the goal of raising funding), while major companies such as JP Morgan and Bank of America are developing a few projects on private versions of the Ethereum blockchain.

    On the markets point of view, the development comes also thanks to a strong and continued demand for the Ethereum token.

    Ether volume registered 20% of the total digital currency market volumes, below bitcoin (46%) and ahead of litecoin (11.38%).

    How to store, buy and sell Ethereum

    While the digital currency is gaining more and more interest, reaching new all time highs, you may ask yourself: “How should I buy, sell and store my Ether tokens?”

    Well, HolyTransaction provides a safe place where you can store, buy and sell your Ether tokens in a user-friendly platform.

    You can exchange Ethereum in a few minutes by using more than 10 digital currencies we support on our HolyTransaction multicurrency wallet.

    Decred 1.0. claims to have a decentralized governance

    Decred, a creation of Bitcoin developers, rolls out decentralized governance, claiming a first in blockchain technology.

    Decred is a cryptocurrency project and platform built from the ground up to leverage the will of its constituents to drive change. This approach eliminates the conflicts that arise when powerful entities attempt to assert control over a cryptocurrency.

    Tomorrow, April 25, 2017 marks the release of Decred v1.0. This historic release puts Decred stakeholders in charge of shaping the future of Decred through direct community consensus voting.

    For the first time in the history of cryptocurrencies, governing control moves away from centralized authorities, such as developers and miners, and is given to the community of stakeholders. Decentralization struggles without decentralized governance; this is especially true when it comes to a rapidly growing global currency.

    Most cryptocurrencies distinguish themselves by how they secure the transactions on their network.

    For example, Bitcoin is famous for using a proof-of-work algorithm that rewards miners for finding solutions to a cryptographic hash puzzle. Other cryptocurrency projects rely on proof-of-stake algorithms that reward users who hold the currency in a “staking” wallet with interest on the balances they carry.

    Both approaches have strengths and limitations; Decred takes advantage of the best of both worlds with a hybrid proof-of-work and proof-of-stake consensus system. This allows the platform to strike a balance between benefits to both miners and stakeholders, giving rise to a more robust notion of consensus.

    The 1.0 release of Decred will include the first community vote on two important issues.

    After 75% or more of miners and stakeholders have updated to 1.0, Decred stakeholders will be able to vote on one consensus change and one signaling vote. Due to the rapidly growing popularity of Decred, the number of stakeholders buying vote tickets has increased dramatically, leading to large oscillations in the ticket price.

    This is a good example of an unanticipated condition which needs to be resolved though community consensus. A new ticket price algorithm will aim to ease the large oscillations in ticket price and lead to better ticket price discovery while still maintaining the target ticket pool size.

    A consensus change of this magnitude is very difficult to achieve in more traditional cryptocurrencies and requires the voluntary acceptance of the code by miners that may or may not have their own agendas. If it passes, the new ticket price algorithm will activate seamlessly for everyone with no further intervention. The second vote will allow stakeholders to signal support for Lightning Network development.

    The Lightning Network is a payment layer that makes it economical and fast to process payments, especially small payments, like buying a cup of coffee without having to pay a large transaction fee to process the transaction. If this signaling vote passes, the developers will begin work on integrating Lightning Network on the Decred blockchain. Once development is complete and tested, a future consensus vote can be taken to automatically activate the Lightning Network code.

    The recent 2017 roadmap highlights some of the other massive innovations that the team hopes to put up for a vote throughout the year. In addition, a new improvement proposal system will be put in place soon to allow for the community to contribute directly to the agenda.

    The release of Decred 1.0 is a watershed moment in the cryptocurrency movement. This digital currency finally does what has never been done before, putting the power of change in the hands of the very people that care about it most. Decred is celebrating version 1.0.0 release with a puzzle challenge.

    The ‘Autonomy Puzzle’ challenge features an initial prize of 500 decred (DCR) to the first solver, equivalent to approximately USD 7,500 at the time of this release. However, players will be working against the clock, as the prize will be reduced every 24 hours. The puzzle difficulty level has been rated ‘easy to medium’, as Decred is aiming to include participants of all skill levels.

    Decred Wallet

    We recently added Decred among the available digital currencies you can store on the HolyTransaction multicurrency wallet.

    We define it as “multicurrency” because you can store more than 10 different cryptocurrencies within the same account and login details.

    Open your Decred Wallet here and store it right next to your own Bitcoin, Ethereum and more.

    Decred: the younger brother of Bitcoin

    Decred (DCR) is a digital currency created back in 2015 by Bitcoin’s BTCSuite developers, an alternative full node bitcoin implementation written in Go.

    “Decred uses a hybridized consensus system to strike a balance between miners and users to create a more robust currency”, as it was created both with proof of work (PoW) and with proof of stake (PoS).

    This hybrid consensus system allows users to create a balance between proof-of-work miners and proof-of-stake users in order to have a much more robust consensus.

    This relatively new cryptocurrency aims at addressing issues related to the increasing centralization of power within the bitcoin blockchain and the growing conflict of interest between the bitcoin community and those who fund the Bitcoin core project.

    Also, it is important to say that Decred can be both mined and staked.

    Why is another cryptocurrency needed?

    When Bitcoin was originally released, it was working in a market that didn’t exist before. There were issues that could be fixed thanks to new digital currencies such as Litecoin or Dogecoin.

    Of course, time is showing that Bitcoin is not a failure at all and it radically changed the idea of money.

    Decred has several new features in order to combine the very best of proof-of-work and proof-of-stake chains with the main objective of utilising both systems in Decred.

    Also, Decred defines itself as “self-funded and progressive” and it relies completely on a community governance and opensource features.

    Decred developer Christina Jepson explained:

    “The intention is not to attack what we currently have in Bitcoin. We want to recognize what has been done well, but instead, we want to take that and improve on what we think can be done better… That is the spirit that started the technology and we want to return to that to explore options to problems we cannot explore in the current system while we continue to support the Bitcoin software. Alternatives are progress and a way forward to improve the greater ecosystem.”

    Decred Wallet

    That said, if you want to start buying and selling Decred coins, you will need the right wallet to store them properly.

    Recently, we at HolyTransaction added a new wallet on our platform in order to allow you to store your Decred right behind your bitcoin and more than other 20 digital currencies.

    Within the same login, in fact, you can store all your cryptocurrencies in a safe place with low fees.
