In recent weeks SideShift AI has been busy understanding the exact value of 1 DOGE. As you can imagine it has been a lengthy endeavour.

After a deep-dive into the MOON technology behind the project our AI has derived the following formula:

D2 -D2 == (D-D)x(D+D). D2 -D2 = ((D-D)x(D+D))*2.

To celebrate this monumental discovery SideShift AI is running a limited time offer where 1 DOGE = 2 DOGE.

SideShift AI TEST PILOTS can send between $1 and $20. This is a limited time offer. Each TEST PILOT can shift DOGE → DOGE once.

With the number of ways to swap coins on SideShift AI having reached over 500, it’s hard to know that everything is working as expected.

That’s why we built Shifty, a robot that randomly swaps coins around just like a normal user would use SideShift AI. When Shifty is unable to perform a shift, we create a Github issue and start tracking down the bug.

Shifty’s workflow

Shifty is written as a Node.js script (119 cloc) that runs every 5 minutes.

  • Pick a random deposit method, such as Bitcoin, Monero, Zcash, Zcash Shielded, USDT, etc.
  • Pick a random settle method that is different from the deposit…


Zcash has two types of addresses/payments. A transparent, t-address, is just like a Bitcoin address and uses the same commands as the Bitcoin Core API I’m used to. A shielded address, often referred to as a z-address conceals the sender, recipient, and amount of transactions. Using z-addresses appears to require a new set of commands prefixed with z_, such as z_getnewaddress.

SideShift AI already has support for shifting to and from t-addresses which uses the exact same code as used for Bitcoin, Litecoin, and more.

Detecting deposits

For detecting incoming deposits, we won’t be able to look through every transaction in every block and see if it’s to us. The privacy technology makes this impossible. …
