BIP 0085 - Bitcoin Wiki

Fun fact: 1815 in ADA's BIP32 path

The 'coin_type' (ref'ed in the BIP44 spec) for Cardano is Ada Lovelace's birth year.
On Yoroi's mobile wallet it shows the 'BIP32' path for ADA, typical value: m/44'/1815'/0'/0/4
I think bitcoin is 0', Litecoin and Digibyte both use 2', was wondering who uses 1', when i found Cardano's 1815. Also, the BIP32 path isn't shown in the browser extension (or i couldn't find it), but found it on the mobile wallet.

Are all possible BIP39 mnemonic seeds produce a valid BIP32 master private key, which produce valid Bitcoin private keys?

The question is provoked by the fact that not all 256-bit numbers are valid private keys. To be valid it must be from 0x1 to 0xFFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF FFFE BAAE DCE6 AF48 A03B BFD2 5E8C D036 4140.
Is it possible that some randomly chosen (with dice, for example) mnemonic seed is not valid, because it produces not valid private keys? Is there a protection for this?
I know that Electrum can be configured to accept a random list of words (user-generated) and to ignore the incorrect checksum.
What is the risk something to go wrong by using manually selected words (selected with dice and "Bip39-diceware" for example)?
Edit: I looked through the documentation (BIP32) briefly and looks like I found the answer:
In case parse256(IL) ≥ n or ki = 0, the resulting key is invalid, and one should proceed with the next value for i. (Note: this has probability lower than 1 in 2127.)
So, it looks like there is a protection envisioned by the developers. Whew.
Edit 2: Actually, no.
In practice, this will never happen (the probability is so small we can ignore it), and likely implementations don't even bother checking the condition.
This is scary.
Edit 3: I tested Electrum. See "I successfully imported invalid Bitcoin private key! #5797" on the Github page.
Edit 4: It's not a bug, it's a feature.
SomberNight said on Github:
Effectively, with what we are doing, some group elements have two representations; while most only have one. Your "invalid" key contains a number that is too large to be a group element; but we subtract the group order from it and use that number instead. It's as if you imported the "valid" key in the first place. In fact if you try to export it, we will give you the "valid" one.

Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

Bottos 2020 Research and Development Scheme

Bottos 2020 Research and Development Scheme

https://preview.redd.it/umh8ivbsua841.png?width=554&format=png&auto=webp&s=5c16d9d9e61503e4c9d44212eecd176eda11550a
As 2020 is now here, Bottos has solemnly released its “2020 Research and development scheme”. On one hand, we adhere to the principle of transparency so that the whole community can comprehend our next step as a whole, but more importantly, it also helps our whole team to think deeply about the future and reach consensus. It is strongly believed that following these consistent follow-ups will help us to in order to achieve the best results.
Based on the efficient development of Bottos, the team’s technical achievements in consensus algorithms and smart contracts are used to deeply implement and optimize the existing technical architecture. At the same time using the community’s technical capabilities, horizontal development, expanding new functional modules and technical directions it stays closely integrated with the whole community.
In the future, we will keep on striving to achieve in-depth thinking, comprehensive planning, and flexible adjustment.


Overview of Technical Routes

https://preview.redd.it/rk9tpg2uua841.png?width=554&format=png&auto=webp&s=77e607b81f31c0d20feaa90eca81f09a23addca4
User feedback within the community is the driving force behind Bottos progress. In the development route of the community and industry we have formulated a roadmap for technical development, pointing out the right path for the team towards the right direction among the massive routes of modern technology.
As part of our 2020 research and development objective we have the following arrangements:
1. Intensifying enormous number of smart contracts and related infrastructures
After many years of development, smart contracts have gradually become the core and standard function in blockchain projects. The strength of smart contracts, ease of use, and stability represent the key capabilities of a blockchain project. As a good start, Bottos has already made great progress in the field of smart contracts. In smart contracts we still need to increase development efforts, making the ease of use and stability of smart contracts the top priority of our future development.
Reducing the barriers for developers and ordinary users to use, shortening the contract development cycle and saving users time is another important task for the team to accomplish. To this end, we have planned an efficient and easy-to-use one-stop contract development, debugging, and deployment tool that will provide multiple access methods and interfaces to the test network to support rapid deployment and rapid debugging.
2. Establishing an excellent client and user portal
The main goal here is to add an entrance point to the creation and deployment of smart contracts in the wallet client. To this end, the wallet needs to be transformed, a local compiler for smart contracts must be added, and an easy-to-use UI interface can be provided for the purpose of creating, deploying, and managing contracts to meet the needs of users with a single mouse click only.
3. Expanding distributed storage
Distributed storage is another focus of our development in the upcoming year. Only by using a distributed architecture can completely solve the issue of performance and scalability of stand-alone storage. Distributed storage suitable for blockchain needs to provide no less than single machine performance, extremely high availability, no single point of failure, easy expansion, and strong consistent transactions. These are the main key points and difficulties of Bottos in field of distributed storage in the upcoming days.
4. Reinforcing multi party secured computing
Privacy in computing is also a very important branch to deal with. In this research direction, Bottos has invested a lot of time and produced many research results on multi-party secured computing, such as technical articles and test cases. In the future, we will continue to give efforts in the direction of multi-party secured computing and apply mature technology achievements into the functions of the chain.

2020 Bottos — Product Development

Support for smart contract deployment in wallets
The built-in smart contract compiler inside the wallet supports compilation of the smart contracts in all languages provided by Bottos and integrates with the functions in the wallet. It also supports one-click deployment of the compiled contract source code in the wallet.
When compiling a contract, one can choose whether to pre-execute the contract code. If pre-execution is selected, it will connect to the remote contract pre-execution service and return the execution result to the wallet.
When deploying a contract, one can choose to deploy to the test network or main network and the corresponding account and private key of the test network or main network should be provided.

2020 Bottos-Technical Research

https://preview.redd.it/x2k65j7xua841.png?width=553&format=png&auto=webp&s=a40eae3c56b664c031b3db96f608923e670ff331
1. Intelligent smart contract development platform (BISDP)
The smart contract development platform BISDP is mainly composed of user-oriented interfaces, as well as back-end compilation and deployment tools, debugging tools, and pre-execution frameworks.
The user-oriented interface provides access methods based on WEB, PC, and mobile apps, allowing developers to quickly and easily compile and deploy contracts and provide contract template management functions. It can also manage the contract remotely by viewing the contract execution status, the consumed resources and other information.
In the compilation and deployment tool a set of smart contract source code editing, running, debugging, and deployment solutions as well as smart contract templates for common tasks are provided, which greatly reduces the threshold for developers to learn and use smart contracts. At the same time, developers and ordinary users are provided with a smart contract pre-execution framework, which can check the logical defects and security risks in smart contracts before actual deployment and promptly remind users a series of problems even before the smart contracts are actually run.
In the debugging tool, there are built-in local debugging and remote debugging tools. Multiple breakpoints can be set in the debugging tool. When the code reaches the breakpoint, one can view the variables and their contents in the current execution stack. One can also make conditional breakpoints based on the value of the variable. The code will not execute until the value reaches a preset value in memory.
In the pre-execution framework, developers can choose to pre-execute contract code in a virtual environment or a test net, checking out problems in some code that cannot be detected during compilation time and perform deeper code inspection. The pre-execution framework can also prompt the user in advance about the time and space resources required for execution.
2. Supporting Python and PHP in BVM virtual machine for writing smart contracts
We have added smart contract writing tools based on Python and PHP languages. These languages can be compiled into the corresponding BVM instruction set for implementation. These two reasons are used as the programming language for smart contracts.
For the Python language, the basic language elements supported by the first phase are:
- Logic control: If, Else, Eli, While, Break, method calls, for x in y
- Arithmetic and relational operators: ADD, SUB, MUL, DIV, ABS, LSHIFT, RSHIFT, AND, OR, XOR, MODULE, INVERT, GT, GTE, LT, LTE, EQ, NOTEQ
-
Data structure:
- Supports creation, addition, deletion, replacement, and calculation of length of list data structure
- Supports creation, append, delete, replace, and calculation of length of dict data structure
Function: Supports function definition and function calls
For the PHP language, the basic language elements supported by the first phase are :
- Logic control: If, Else, Eli, While, Break, method calls
- Arithmetic and relational operators: ADD, SUB, MUL, DIV, ABS, LSHIFT, RSHIFT, AND, OR, XOR, MODULE, INVERT, GT, GTE, LT, LTE, EQ, NOTEQ
Data structure:
- Support for creating, appending, deleting, replacing, and calculating length of associative arrays
Function: Supports the definition and calling of functions
For these two above mentioned languages, the syntax highlighting and code hinting functions are also provided in BISDP, which is very convenient for developers to debug any errors.
3. Continuous exploration of distributed storage solutions
Distributed storage in blockchain technology actually refers to a distributed database. Compared with the traditional DMBS, in addition to the ACID characteristics of the traditional DBMS, the distributed database also provides the high availability and horizontal expansion of the distributed system. The CAP principle of distributed system reveals that for a common distributed system there is an impossible triangle, only two of them can be selected among its three directions, consistency, availability, and partition fault tolerance. Distributed databases in China must require strong consistency. This is due to the characteristics of the blockchain system itself, because it needs to provide reliable distributed transaction capabilities. For these technical issues, before ensuring that the distributed storage solution reaches 100% availability, we will continue to invest more time and technical strength, do more functional and performance testing, and conduct targeted tests for distributed storage systems.
4. Boosting secured multi-party computing research and development
Secured multi-party Computing (MPC) is a cryptographic mechanism that enables multiple entities to share data while protecting the confidentiality of the data without exposing the secret encryption key. Its performance indicators, such as security and reliability are important for the realization of the blockchain. The transparent sharing of the data privacy on the distributed ledger and the privacy protection of the client wallet’s private key are truly essential.
At present, the research and development status of the platform provided by Bottos in terms of privacy-enhanced secured multi-party computing is based on the BIP32 / 44 standard in Bitcoin wallets to implement distributed management of client wallet keys and privacy protection.
Considering the higher level of data security and the distributed blockchain account as the public data of each node, further research and development are being planned on:
(1) Based on RSA, Pailliar, ECDSA and other public key cryptosystems with homomorphic attributes, as well as the GC protocol, OT protocol, and ZKP protocol to generate and verify transaction signatures between two parties;
(2) Introduce the international mainstream public key system with higher security and performance, national secret public key encryption system, and fewer or non-interactive ZKP protocols to achieve secured multi-party computing with more than two parties, allowing more nodes to participate Privacy protection of ledger data.

Summary

After years of exploration, we are now full of confidence in our current research and development direction. We are totally determined to move forward by continuous hard work. In the end, all members of Bottos also want to thank all the friends in the community for their continuous support and outstanding contributions. Your certainty is our greatest comfort and strongest motivation.

Be smart. Be data-driven. Be Bottos.

[Article] Bitcoin Private: the revolution of privacy coins?

Have you ever heard about Bitcoin Private (BTCP)?
Bitcoin Private (BTCP) is a cryptocurrency originated from the hard fork of two cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin (BTC) and Zclassic (ZCL), occurred on 28th February at blocks 511346 for BTC and 272991 for ZCL, which was released to the public (main-net launch) on 03/03/2018.
The main advantages in this coin compared to Bitcoin are: best privacy protocol (zK-SNARKs), community driven, lower block time and higher block sizes which results on 8x faster transactions, very low fees, SegWit and Lightning Network ready, PoW algorithm which promotes a decentralized coin ecosystem and difficulty adjustment on every block to control inflation of the coin.
For laymen, a very brief way of explaining the potential of Bitcoin Private is that it uses Bitcoin's own technology, but with shielded (private) and faster transactions, very lower fees and have much more resources!! We can say that Bitcoin Private is like Bitcoin, but much better ..!
Community driven and Ambassador’s Program
A great difference that Bitcoin Private has compared to any other privacy coins is that it is a community driven project, so everybody can be part of the community and help on the project.
There already are more than 50,000 members on their social communities being part of the project and supporting the coin.
If you want to be a member of the community and support the project you just need to join on their channels on Telegram, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Medium, Discord, Github or Reddit. You can choose the ones you prefer to use to be a part of.
They also have a program called “Ambassador Program”, where anybody who wants to contribute in the project with any type of knowledge can join. If you want to work on Bitcoin Private join the Ambassador’s Program here and start working and helping on the project!
John McAfee supports Bitcoin Private
After a votation made by John McAfee on his Twitter where there were over 21,000 votes, 70% of the people have chosen him to lead a Privacy Movement to promote privacy within the crypto field all around the world. John has already created the Declaration of Currency Independence where anybody can sign and be support the movement for a fairer financial world.
The BTCP community is very proud and happy to have John McAfee as its newest member. He has been assigned as father of privacy moment and a big representant of Bitcoin Private, as the community believe he is going to be the speaker about Bitcoin Private and promote the big privacy coins.
Hard working developers and modern resources
After only 3 months after main-net launch the strong development team has built much more than everybody thought! Bitcoin Private already have Ledger and Trezor hard wallets support, SegWit coin claiming, marchant plataform where you can integrate Bitcoin Private payments on your business easily (Bitcoin Private Pay) and transactions via SMS where you don’t need internet to transfer your coins to anybody (Cointigo).
For your surprise this is just the beginning, now the development team are focused on rebase BTCP code base and implementing BIP32, full SegWit and Lightning Network support.
Bitcoin Private short term predictions
After many conquers and happy news in the last week, the latest predictions for Bitcoin Private prices have changed. Specialists believes that the coin may reach $200 worth until the end of July.
In my opinion, this is very possible and not hard to happen, in view of this coin have much value and is only on its beginning, but it’s undervalued because of lack of big exchanges and excessive FUD from people who want the project to falls or from other competitor’s coins. So maybe now it the time to full our bags with BTCPs as the coin is worth only $25 today and we can get a possible gain of 800%!! Are you in?

Groestlcoin ivendPay Integration

ivendPay and Groestlcoin cryptocurrency have announced the start of integration.
IT company ivendPay, the developer of a universal multicurrency payment module for automatic and retail trade, intends to integrate Groestlcoin cryptocurrency — one of the oldest and the most reputable Bitcoin forks into the payment system. Groestlcoin is characterized by instant transactions with almost zero commission and is optimal for mass retail trade where micropayments are mostly used.
According to Sergey Danilov, founder and CEO of ivendPay, Groestlcoin will become the 11th cryptocurrency integrated into the payment module. The first working vending machines for the sale of coffee, snacks and souvenirs, equipped with ivendPay modules, served the visitors of the CryptoEvent RIW exhibition at VDNKh in Moscow and accepted Bitcoin, Go Byte, Dash, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Bitcoin Gold, Dogecoin and Emercoin. ivendPay terminals are designed and patented to accept payments in electronic money, cryptocurrencies and cash when connecting the corresponding cash terminal. Payment for the purchase takes a few seconds, the choice of the payment currency occurs at the time of placing the order on the screen, the payment is made by QR-code through the cryptocurrency wallet on the smartphone.
The interest in equipping vending machines with ivendPay terminals has already been shown by the companies of Malaysia and Israel, where first test networks would be installed. ivendPay compiles a waiting list for vending networks interested in buying terminals and searches for an investor to launch industrial production. According to Sergey Danilov, the universal payment terminal ivendPay for the vending machine will cost about $500. The founder of ivendPay has welcomed the appearance of Groestlcoin among integrated cryptocurrencies, as it is another step towards the realization of the basic idea of digital money - free and cross-border access to goods and services for everybody.

[Article] Bitcoin Private: the revolution of privacy coins?

Have you ever heard about Bitcoin Private (BTCP)?
Bitcoin Private (BTCP) is a cryptocurrency originated from the hard fork of two cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin (BTC) and Zclassic (ZCL), occurred on 28th February at blocks 511346 for BTC and 272991 for ZCL, which was released to the public (main-net launch) on 03/03/2018.
The main advantages in this coin compared to Bitcoin are: best privacy protocol (zK-SNARKs), community driven, lower block time and higher block sizes which results on 8x faster transactions, very low fees, SegWit and Lightning Network ready, PoW algorithm which promotes a decentralized coin ecosystem and difficulty adjustment on every block to control inflation of the coin.
For laymen, a very brief way of explaining the potential of Bitcoin Private is that it uses Bitcoin's own technology, but with shielded (private) and faster transactions, very lower fees and have much more resources!! We can say that Bitcoin Private is like Bitcoin, but much better ..!
Community driven and Ambassador’s Program
A great difference that Bitcoin Private has compared to any other privacy coins is that it is a community driven project, so everybody can be part of the community and help on the project.
There already are more than 50,000 members on their social communities being part of the project and supporting the coin.
If you want to be a member of the community and support the project you just need to join on their channels on Telegram, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Medium, Discord, Github or Reddit. You can choose the ones you prefer to use to be a part of.
They also have a program called “Ambassador Program”, where anybody who wants to contribute in the project with any type of knowledge can join. If you want to work on Bitcoin Private join the Ambassador’s Program here and start working and helping on the project!
John McAfee supports Bitcoin Private
After a votation made by John McAfee on his Twitter where there were over 21,000 votes, 70% of the people have chosen him to lead a Privacy Movement to promote privacy within the crypto field all around the world. John has already created the Declaration of Currency Independence where anybody can sign and be support the movement for a fairer financial world.
The BTCP community is very proud and happy to have John McAfee as its newest member. He has been assigned as father of privacy moment and a big representant of Bitcoin Private, as the community believe he is going to be the speaker about Bitcoin Private and promote the big privacy coins.
Hard working developers and modern resources
After only 3 months after main-net launch the strong development team has built much more than everybody thought! Bitcoin Private already have Ledger and Trezor hard wallets support, SegWit coin claiming, marchant plataform where you can integrate Bitcoin Private payments on your business easily (Bitcoin Private Pay) and transactions via SMS where you don’t need internet to transfer your coins to anybody (Cointigo).
For your surprise this is just the beginning, now the development team are focused on rebase BTCP code base and implementing BIP32, full SegWit and Lightning Network support.
Bitcoin Private short term predictions
After many conquers and happy news in the last week, the latest predictions for Bitcoin Private prices have changed. Specialists believes that the coin may reach $200 worth until the end of July.
In my opinion, this is very possible and not hard to happen, in view of this coin have much value and is only on its beginning, but it’s undervalued because of lack of big exchanges and excessive FUD from people who want the project to falls or from other competitor’s coins. So maybe now it the time to full our bags with BTCPs as the coin is worth only $25 today and we can get a possible gain of 800%!! Are you in?

Notes on a first quick test of NTumblebit, on Linux and regtest.

I just thought I'd jot down a few notes on the experience of trying out the current NTumbleBit code.
This is testing on regtest, done for the simple reason that you don't have to wait for testnet blocks (nor sync testnet which is mildly annoying). At this stage I just wanted to learn how this works.
Your starting point is this wiki page.

Installation

You need to download Bitcoin Core. Use at least 0.13.1 - this turned out to be only major blocking point in the whole test, funnily enough, for me - it took me a few hours(!) in debugging to realize that the reason my wallet's coins were not being recognized was simply because 0.12.1 didn't support the necessary RPC syntax. (Note to devs: is there a way to expose errors/exception to the user in the client to help with under-the-hood errors like that? RPC configuration errors are exposed, so that's good of course).
Since this is regtest, that's it: you don't need to sync any blockchains :)
However, you do of course have to configure and start it. Put a bitcoin.conf somewhere (if you're currently running a node it's easiest to make a separate one from your main ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf one, of course. I put one in ~/bitcoin.conf with these settings:
rpcuser=bitcoinrpc rpcpassword=123456abcdef 
(you'll need those values again in a minute) and then run with
~/bitcoininstallationdibitcoind -regtest -daemon -conf=homedibitcoin.conf 
(I didn't need to add server=1 to config).
Note that coins are not available until maturity, so you need to use the generate command to mine blocks, like this:
~/bitcoininstallationdibitcoin-cli -regtest -rpcuser=bitcoinrpc -rpcpassword=123456abcdef generate 101 
Now your regtest bitcoind is running, you can move on to Tumblebit. Follow the instructions in the wiki page mentioned at the start; install .Net Core - the Microsoft instructions are easy to follow, just a couple of apt-gets and install the *.deb. Next, clone the github repo and run the Unit Tests. They passed first time for me.

Running

Next, start up the server, following the instructions in the wiki, except note you're using regtest, so:
cd NTumbleBit.TumblerServer dotnet run -regtest 
The first start up will compile but also set up RSA keys, all that is fine without changes, but you'll need to edit the config so that the RPC is pointing at your regtest instance properly. In this case it (the new config should be located in ~/.ntumblebit/RegTest/server.config) should be edited to look like:
rpc.url=http://localhost:18332/ rpc.user=bitcoinrpc rpc.password=123456abcdef #rpc.cookiefile=yourbitcoinfolde.cookie 
Then restart and check you get no RPC errors. Leave that console open, it's running a server loop.
Next, configure and start the client. Note, we are still following the wiki page, except for the regtest element, so:
cd NTumbleBit.CLI dotnet run -regtest 
You'll most likely get an RPC error again, before it shuts down. Now we need to edit the ~/.ntumblebit/RegTest/client.config file. The server can be left as the default localhost:5000, but you need the right RPC settings:
rpc.url=http://localhost:18332/ rpc.user=bitcoinrpc rpc.password=123456abcdef #rpc.cookiefile=yourbitcoinfolde.cookie tumbler.server=http://localhost:5000 outputwallet.extpubkey= outputwallet.keypath=0 
the last two fields are the important bit, which the wiki page explains in some detail for the testnet case.

Details on setting up a receiving wallet (for this test!)

What you need is a BIP32 based wallet (HD) that supports testnet, and can be run against regtest here (which in most cases will be the same thing to a wallet, as long as it can connect via RPC to sync itself). The good news is the wallet doesn't need to contain any coins. The details of the following probably won't be suitable for most (if you've never used joinmarket it's a bit convoluted), so you'll probably want to find another easy to use wallet; the wiki page should be a good starting point.
For my test I used joinmarket; all we need to do is (a) hook it up to the regtest instance, and (b) extract the BIP32 xpub key that we'll be sending coins to. So in my case the flow of coins is:
Regtest Bitcoin Core wallet (containing 'mined' coins) one branch of my BIP32 joinmarket wallet, configured to sync against the same regtest instance.
I used my new joinmarket code but it's the same for the main joinmarket code. I overwrote joinmarket.cfg to have regtest settings (use this file; only the highlighted settings matter, those are the right ones for this test), then just run python wallet-tool.py randomseed. "randomseed" there can be literally anything, it's read as a brainwallet style seed for the bip32 wallet (because testnet, we don't care about its insecurity). The tpub.. keys seen for each branch are the "xpub" public keys at that branch of the BIP32 wallet. Tumblebit is going to send to a branch below whatever xpub we need, so the simplest is to add a print statement to print the xpub key above that; e.g. add this code:
for i in range(max_mix_depth): print('master for index: ' + str( i) + ' : ' + btc.bip32_privtopub(mixing_depth_keys[i])) 
immediately above this line. Then run again python wallet-tool.py randomseed.
Extract an xpub for any one of the "mixdepths", e.g. I chose:
master for index: 3 : tpubDBFGvUbWtEPKXeWPeG7rUh98iV9GuXSDbnk6ZrZHjcmp134BPByT293HPPQ93DktrVFKpZeAU1ULSdyfmwWuUGvUVLP19JkdUq2mzNKFJPR 
and put that tpub.. key into the field pubkey in the above mentioned 'client.config':
outputwallet.extpubkey=tpubDBFGvUbWtEPKXeWPeG7rUh98iV9GuXSDbnk6ZrZHjcmp134BPByT293HPPQ93DktrVFKpZeAU1ULSdyfmwWuUGvUVLP19JkdUq2mzNKFJPR outputwallet.keypath=0 
Now save and quit.

Running the tumble

Restart the client. If RPC is right, it'll start running, waiting for blocks. Your regtest Core instance will have coins (after the previous generate 101), and those coins will be automatically tumbled, one coin at a time, into the output wallet (in my case, the branch m/0/3/0 which is labelled there 'mixdepth 3, external').
Now you can test and watch the process! Open up a third console and repeatedly generate blocks:
/path/to/bitcoin/bin/bitcoin-cli -regtest -rpcpassword=123456abcdef generate 1 
As each block is generated you'll see the state in the client terminal window updating, showing the phases. A new 'epoch' (right term?) is started every N blocks (I haven't investigated the timing yet), and several epochs run concurrently. In each one, the client can pay in 1 Bitcoin (from Core) and eventually get out 1 coin - fees to the destination (Joinmarket in my case, any other BIP32 in yours). You can replace generate 1 with generate N but I'm not sure if the code will always correctly handle you mining lots of blocks at once! After a large enough number of blocks you'll start to see 'ClientCashout phase' occurring, and txids being printed out. You can go back to your (JM or other) wallet and see the coins arriving; here's what I see after a few epochs have gone through (using my python wallet-tool.py randomseed command):
for mixdepth=2 balance=0.00000000btc mixing depth 3 m/0/3/ external addresses m/0/3/0 tpubDDMAxSHJmxzeXwDnATuvtDizqNSsQKpXGufBDnER44BzEbHy7kg485zZwHqvzprgf6yEQYg9qYYfsLYS1HMmdSuXDzQb2dJSiga9geyM62R m/0/3/0/007 mw9s7tYucxB9yr2L6HkqeDVsh3wdgMdcyK used 0.99995750 btc m/0/3/0/008 mq5TgTNgwYHv88Q4T7wL6kTb1MBSPE3mqK used 0.99995750 btc m/0/3/0/009 mhzQFY8FNvux6SKWKLKmhBB3Sw4MLaSnyu used 0.99995750 btc m/0/3/0/010 mrYECmCf5UKa1BBRMuzprVugsCi9z7oiHo new 0.00000000 btc m/0/3/0/011 mopUNXmHT8ngfBymM3c3EYMg7RLZAf6Zc6 new 0.00000000 btc m/0/3/0/012 mmaVXVfQP4UAYJPhMpQ3FhgXfHzujaxyw4 new 0.00000000 btc m/0/3/0/013 mzYD1AcUFz8SVwJM8EjVCfEM6pcYnHooBR new 0.00000000 btc m/0/3/0/014 my5unLCEMWQBkXBdeJ75VVGk1wrMrT8iDE new 0.00000000 btc m/0/3/0/015 muA76YSTtKKmD6HnVKYhkd9K9TZnPLh8pp new 0.00000000 btc internal addresses m/0/3/1 for mixdepth=3 balance=2.99987250btc

Why aren't the Litecoin BIP32 serialization values updated in Litecoin Core source?

According to tons of posts all over the internet, Litecoin BIP32 public keys should start with "Ltub" and private with "Ltpv". But the actual source of the reference client still has the version bytes which serialize to the Bitcoin "xpub/xprv" values.
https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin/blob/master-0.10/src/chainparams.cpp#L169-L170
I would think that the reference client would be the definitive source for what the values actually should be, right? But according to the Litecoin Core reference client, they "should" be "xpub/xprv".
Does anyone know where were these values established originally and is there a reason they've not been added to Litecoin Core?

Protect your 3D printed products & designs from being cloned with cryptoproof.info

Check out our: Website https://cryptoproof.info/ Source code: https://github.com/cryptoproofinfo/webapp
Announcement: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1579977.msg15863685#msg15863685 Follow us: https://twitter.com/cryptoproof Fund us: https://bitcoinstarter.com/projects/cryptographic-proof-of-association/
 
Introducing Cryptographic Proof of Association: Our new service which allows producers to detect if their 3D printed designs are being copied and consumers to know if their item is a clone at zero or near zero cost!
 
How it works: CPOA is a concept made possible by the recent(ish) introduction of BIP32 functionality into cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
For those not in the know, BIP32 is a standard by which it is possible to create master private and public keys from which many 'baby' subkeys can be produced.
These subkeys are mathematically linked to one another so for example Bitcoins can be sent to a sub public key address generated by Alice who lives in the UK using the master public key but the funds can only be spent by Bob who lives in America and has the master private key.
This is clearly very useful but what else can we do with this? We can use it for verification and ID!
Our idea is simple, businesses and individual people can register their master public key with our website which members of the public will be able to visit and confirm if a subkey they have been provided with belongs to the company/individual they believe it does.
 
Example use case: In the future when you order an item from a vendor such as a cup or a toy it seems sensible to envision a scenario where rather than have the vendor mail it to you or send it by drone they instead send the blueprint to your 3D printer which produces the item instantly for you at home or maybe they print the item for you themselves and then physically send it but in either case how can you know that you purchased the item from the producer in question and not someone who ordered an item themselves, intercepted the blueprint or scanned the product which was delivered to them and just sold you a clone? This is a big problem in the pharmaceutical industry.
Cryptoproof solves this by providing a common location where vendors can register their bitcoin extended public keys allowing them to brand each item with a unique subkey address which cryptoproof can verify so that the consumer can know if a product originates from the producer that they think it does (by seeing if a verified account is associated with it) and if there is more than one copy of that item in existence (by seeing if/how many times that address has been submitted in the past).
Using bitcoin addresses for this purpose adds an extra dimension to the scenario because value can be transmitted to and from them which allows not only for verification but also can be used to keep an immutable record showing how much was paid for the item, who paid it and when the transaction took place.
This technology has the potential to save lives.
Another feature of this method is 'blockchain unburdening', the scanning and submitting of keys in this way does not involve the blockchain and will not contribute to any unnecessary bloat.
Bullets, condoms, electronic parts, photo ID (passports - drivers licenses), receipts, invoices, files (torrents - legal documents), pharmaceuticals, etc.
The list is endless.
 
Any/all feedback is appreciated :)

Synala -- Feature Suggestions?

Hi everyone,
Well, since I'm upgrading Synala (http://envrin.com/synala) right away, whether I like it or not, I thought I'd open the floor for suggestions. For those who don't know, Synala is an excellent little open-source wallet you can install on your server, and easily accept payments from others (eg. clients, customers, etc.). Fully supports products, invoices, multiple BIP32 wallets, multisig, and more.
If wanted, full details and online demo at: http://envrin.com/synala
I've been using it myself for a couple years now since I first developed it, and it's a great little wallet. I use it for all my personal funds, and have never had a problem.
Just looking for any feature suggestions you'd like to see implemented, since I have to do an upgrade on it anyway due to Segwit. Obviously, it's a free, open-source system so I'm not going to go overkill, but happy to add some cool features. Here's a few I can personally think of:
1.) Obviously, replace the requirement of Bitcoin Core to built-in SPV node or similar. 2.) Coin management, so you can select which inputs to use for outgoing txs. 3.) Escrow support, so multiple parties can sign a tx separately on their own time.
Aside from that, not really sure. I don't want to bloat the functionality too much, and would prefer to keep it a "clean & mean" system. For example, I'm not going to add support for fiat payments and buy / sell coin features, as that's what the commercial packages are for.
If anyone has any suggestions though, please feel free to post them below. I'll see what I can add in. If anyone wants to help out on the project, please don't hesitate. :)
PS. If you're going to download Synala, please grab the archive from the Github page (https://github.com/peterscott78/synala) as there's a couple minor fixes (eg. high S-value error) that are fixed in Github, but not in the archives available on the Envrin site.

BIP proposal draft: BIP43 "purpose" allocation for Ethereum | Nick Johnson | Apr 12 2017

Nick Johnson on Apr 12 2017:
BIP: bip-nickjohnson-ethereum-purpose
Layer: Applications
Title: Ethereum purpose allocation for Deterministic Wallets
Author: Nick Johnson
Status: Proposed
Type: Standards Track
Created: 2017-04-12
==Abstract==
This BIP defines a logical hierarchy for deterministic wallets on the Ethereum
blockchain based on an algorithm described in BIP-0032 (BIP32 from now on) and
purpose scheme described in BIP-0043 (BIP43 from now on).
This BIP is a particular application of BIP43.
==Motivation==
Because Ethereum is based on account balances rather than UTXO, the hierarchy
defined by BIP44 is poorly suited. As a result, several competing
derivation path strategies have sprung up for deterministic wallets, resulting
in inter-client incompatibility. This BIP seeks to provide a path to standardise
this in a fashion better suited to Ethereum's unique requirements.
==Path levels==
We define the following 2 levels in BIP32 path:
m / purpose' / subpurpose' / *
Apostrophe in the path indicates that BIP32 hardened derivation is used.
Each level has a special meaning, described in the chapters below.
===Purpose===
Purpose is a constant set to the hardened value of the BIP number assigned to
this BIP (equivalently, the BIP number, bitwise ORed with 0x80000000) following
the BIP43 recommendation.
It indicates that the subtree of this node is used according to this
specification.
Hardened derivation is used at this level.
===Subpurpose===
Subpurpose is set to the EIP number specifying the remainder of the BIP32
derivation path. This permits new Ethereum-focused applications of
deterministic wallets without needing to interface with the BIP process.
Hardened derivation is used at this level.
==Reference== * [[bip-0032.mediawiki|BIP32 - Hierarchical Deterministic
Wallets]] * [[bip-0043.mediawiki|BIP43 - Purpose Field for Deterministic
Wallets]]

What are Dogecoin's Live & TestNet address prefixes?

The bitcoin wiki lists several decimal prefixes (and their associated address letters), but it doesn't list the dogecoin prefixes.
I have found what appear to be Dogecoin's Live prefixes in cruptocoin's coininfo module.
And what could possibly be the testnet prefixes too in brainwallet's bip32 implementation. However, I can't see how these values actually convert to the decimal prefixes.
Thanks for your help guys!

bitWallet for iOS has been updated to v1.3 to include a Night theme. PushTx workaround remains intact. No jailbreak required.

Three screenshots
A dark theme was one of my original feature requests, so it's cool to see it implemented. I think it looks pretty stylish.
My big feature request is for bitWallet to become hierarchally deterministic (BIP32). I'm not satisfied with relying on iTunes backups, and since bitWallet is not deterministic, there's no good way to back up my private keys. At first I was importing private keys from paper wallets so I would at least have an offline copy, but I've taken it a step further to make it kind of deterministic. All I've done is created a new Electrum wallet (and seed) on my desktop machine, and imported 5-10 of the private keys into a fresh bitWallet. I will simply use those addresses instead of any generated by bitWallet, because I know that I can retrieve the keys easily from my desktop if necessary. This should make transaction management and record keeping much easier as well, since I can just export an Electrum .csv like I normally do.
Please remember that no mobile or web wallet is a suitable substitution for proper cold storage. They should generally be used for daily spending, and not for storing hundreds or thousands of dollars!
For anyone curious how long this bitcoin wallet will be available on the App Store, that's anybody's guess. I have placed a friendly bet with fellow user Introshine, who predicted Apple would pull bitWallet or force the removal of the pushtx workaround within three months (August 25th). For shits and giggles, we decided to place a friendly wager of 0.01 BTC using a multisig address via Bitrated. If that 0.01 BTC increases in value to $100, I'm perfectly okay with that whether I win or lose. ;)
Here's a screenshot of our agreement.
