Have a seat, pour a cup of whatever drink you celebrate with, and think about where you left those old TRTL wallet keys. Whether you like what we say next or not, you’re going to need them, soon..

My friends, it is time for us to say goodbye.

Today we hit block 3,000,000. We upgraded our network and our proof of work algorithm for the last time. By block 4,000,000 or in about 1 year from today, the TurtleCoin network as we know it will begin on a path of its own destruction.

A short time after block 5 million, the chain will be dead, and completely gone, unable to produce more blocks. …

Developer Updates

TurtleCoin 1.0 Is Ready!

As some of you who follow the dev pipeline may already know, we nerds on the TRTL core team have been busily working on bringing TurtleCoin into being a legitimate version 1.0.0 product. We are so excited to say that this goal has been a success!

To those of you outside of programming circles, what this means is that over time, through many planned efforts, we have rewritten and improved enough of the codebase that we are no longer the same TurtleCoin software that was initially released years ago. …

Boredom Killer #62

Today, for the fun of it, I threw together a quick little easily-deployable P2P, end-to-end encrypted messaging service class, written in TypeScript, which leverages TurtleCoin-Utils + the knowledge I’ve gained from developing TurtleTips. This library lets you encrypt and pass along any arbitrary data string you like between peers — could be used for a chat client, for sharing confidential data between two parties, or passing along any other information you see fit. I may clean it up and release it as a standalone library, or I may hoard it with the rest of my boredom-killing projects, only time will tell. …

TurtleCoin on Ledger Nano!

TurtleCoin® Ledger Application

Have a Ledger Nano S or X? Want to use it to keep your TRTL safe? Check out the video… clicky clicky.

I recently got my hands on a brand new Nano X and the first thing I did was beat it on ground and run over it with my car. After that, I gave it to do the doggo and let him play with it for a bit. After all, if I’m going to store my hard earned TRTL on one of these things, I need to know that it will hold up to abuse. …

This week we protested peacefully against the lives wasted coding in lesser languages that don’t rhyme with poo-basic and argued for a solid hour about the color of a single dot on a page nobody reads. Find out who was wrong about the color of that dot in this week's issue of the Pulitzer Prize winning scholarly publication The TurtleCoin Weekly Roundup Article, July 7, 2020 Edition.

We’ve committed to make v0.28.0 the last release to include turtle-service. In celebration of moving away from that legacy service, we’ve begun work on the next greatest thing since sliced bread. …

Why? Because it’s fun to do bad things.

For those of you who paid attention during the last roundup, we mentioned that some discussions were happening at the old sandwich cart about a few potential changes around the chat. Turns out we were discussing whether or not the time was right to give a shot at letting market talkers have their own channel in the server.

If you go to the chat right now, there is a room called turtle-traders. If you are surprised, so are we. Keep reading though..

In the beginning…

When the TRTL discord first launched, it was during crypto December and what seemed like the entire world was in the chat talking about all topics under the sun. This had the positive effect of attracting a lot of otherwise unoccupied bright minds… along with a few shitheads, as can be expected with a sample size that large. …
