  2. I'm so sorry for the very late reply ๐Ÿ˜‹ Thanks to the newly found passion in Blockchain and ground breaking technologies, I manage to escape from the infinite circles. About fortune telling, it runs in the family. My late grandfather often taught classes about fengshui & fortune telling. Our family has always been a fengshui practitioner, and people from our community often find us for consulting about anything. So, I get used to it. Fortune telling, consulting and understanding people :))
  3. Hello to all of you, wish the entire team success. I'm sure the project will succeed. ๐Ÿ˜€
  4. The Elrond Prestaking Smart Contract can be viewed in Etherscan at this address: 0xE9F97FCa1C8C1dDC6649104A6dBCD400D073A445 You can see a decompiled version here, just press the button: https://etherscan.io/bytecode-decompiler?a=0xE9F97FCa1C8C1dDC6649104A6dBCD400D073A445
  5. Where is the source code for the ERC-20 staking smart contracts?
  6. I forgot to mention, those are Elrond Testnet wallets, while I appreciate the love, don't send real tokens like BEP2 or ERC-20 to them, ok? Thanks!
  7. I am loving this, Sorin. The "No, Thanks" bit of the mission came from "No, thanks" where the winner is the one with the lowest score. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/12942/no-thanks
  8. If you're not familiar with Mission 6, let me tell you what needs to happen: When the snapshot will be performed on Monday 23 December 12:00 UTC, your wallet balance should be as close as possible to ZERO. You can do whatever you want with your ERD, voting for articles will be the most popular approach, BUT, in the spirit of Shadow Shards, you could be attacking other players, filling their wallet for the snapshot. Having ERD in their wallet can send someone way down on the Leaderboard, this means better chances for you! I'm putting a target on my back!! In a last attempt to have some fun, I challenge you to keep my wallets full for the snapshot. I will try my best to defend my castle and empty the wallets, but depending on the timing, you have a pretty good chance to knock me out of the leaderboard. What can I gain from this? Well, some battle scars :)) and funds for voting, or attacking others! There are no rules in this mission, everything goes!! Here are my wallets: Turtle: 5f06bfe68e78edc52bc642e2bfc56074b98678e7219cfeacfdb6b45fbcf23442 Weasel: 767b0cfd471501c760d3338e5dcb16836f7e9cd7366387851b92022ac6cba020 Eagle: cf51fc9eab73998545e2390a563c7a11603e37d0b581ee18bd1c5b1dc1343563 Raven: 1f59999f81032463036b7414ab65ffbca003542582ec78ebd8032c44ddc7024c Panda: 0f66deababd94d0de7fc205fed533f5bc6a31f9f21f3889f793f8f742ef3f41b Snake: 84fb6cd51e5b5e0c557018bd869a953e645d4e58de0e562acd42f6dd6e0ed2e4 Good luck and have fun! PS: This is also a publicity stunt, so, if you liked my article you can also send your ERD to the voting address at 640e7e30c684aafc3c959881b38ee6bc510798267e7cdc78a314f05ae5294a40. Cheers!!

  10. The three nodes are configured on 3 VPS from the N3Servers provider. Each node is configured on the Ubuntu-16.04 64bit operating system with 4 GB of memory on a 200 GB disk SSD.https://www.n3servers.com/ The monitoring is done with the help of BoN BoT monitor and mobile ERD Tracker application.

  12. hello i am very new to the elrond community. i have been holding elrond for some time. i am interested in running a node. is it too late to get on board? or one can build and run a node at any time
  13. ๐Ÿ“ฃ Official Patch Release and Round 2 of Phase 2 Start Hello Nodes Team, Weekends are great - everyone recognizes your right to be left alone and do the things you love most. Which we embrace fully, so we can focus on our work. We're counting on you guys being normal people, so even if we're launching the patch on a Saturday, we will only start monitoring on Monday. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please do: Backup your keys, delete the old database, set up the latest version of the node, restore keys, start node โ–ช๏ธ Linux (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-linux) installation guide โš ๏ธ Does not work on Windows โ–ซ๏ธ MacOs (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connect-from-macos) installation guide โฑ This announcement is in effect as of Saturday 30 November 19:00 UTC. Official uptime monitoring starts Monday 2 December 19:00 UTC, 48 hours (because of the weekend) from the announcement. Be sure to update your nodes before that time. โฒ The genesis time was Friday 29 November 11:00 UTC โš™๏ธ Relevant tags: v1.0.41 and BoN-ph2-w2 ๐Ÿ‘ป Remember: we removed ghost nodes. We defined a node as "ghost" if it was offline for 7 days or more during Rounds 4 & 5 from Phase 1 ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ The installation & auto-updater tool are still in the oven, our chefs are cooking around the clock ๐Ÿ–ผ Bye-bye Windows! This patch will not work. This is the last call to move to Linux! "I've ran out of emoticons." - not Sever โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  14. ๐ŸŽฌ Closing Round 1 of Phase 2 Hello Nodes Team, Round 1 of Phase 2 is now over! It was a very good run, thanks for all your participation. We had the epic 5 Generals mission, our longest round yet, TPS was nice, some new errors were found, fun was had by all. ๐Ÿ“Š Monitoring has stopped Friday 22 November 14:00 UTC, exactly 1 week after the start of Round 1. It is now safe to turn off all nodes until Monday (please read below) ๐Ÿšง Shard 2 had troubles adding new blocks for the last 14 hours or so. We actually know why for a long time and the development for the improvement is done and it will be included in the next patch. So we grow! ๐Ÿ“ก An automatic update script is being tested right now. We will offer it to you guys on Monday 25 November 12:00 UTC (estimate). From that point over, all nodes will have 24hrs time to opt into using the script. After the 24 hour grace period, a patch will be issued. The Latest Version penalty will henceforth be decreased from 24 hours to just 1 hour. ๐Ÿง Why an auto-updater: This is so we can release patches faster, restart the blockchain faster and overall be more confident about spamming the network. Remember that Phase 3 is coming as well, recovering from those deadly attacks will be interesting! ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please do: make sure you watch this announcement channel in the 24 hour period starting with Monday 25 November 12:00 UTC and onwards for the autoupdater instructions. ๐Ÿ‘ป While we wait for the hot new rating system to clean out offline nodes and low performing ones, ghost nodes will be purged. 70-ish nodes haven't been online in a while, so we will remove them in Round 2 of Phase 2. They can be re-added to the next Round, if you decide to turn them back on. "Some say Mondays are terrible. Nothing a new patch can't fix." - aspiring ex-smoker โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl! ๐Ÿ›ก
  15. ๐ŸŽฅ Battle of Nodes Recap & Next Steps Hello Nodes Team, We're working to bring you a very friendly and non-intrusive Validator client auto-update tool. In the meantime we're increasing and decreasing TPS and interpreting results. ๐ŸŽ– The next mission will be to update your node in under 1 hour from the patch release with this tool. The tool will be released at time "x", then a new patch will be issued at time "x + 24 hr" and mission scoring will happen at time "x + 25hr". You will have a 24 hours interval to deploy the auto-update tool on your node and then we plan to see all nodes updated within 1 hour from the new patch. "x" = soon(tm) ๐Ÿ“Š To even out scoring between those who had full uptime but no time for missions and those who dilligently did missions even if they couldn't maintain 100% uptime, we're normalizing the score for the coming period. Please check the current calculations here (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Z1oMYll6ileduuvxZ0pzLuGhVKd5PwnzMdfWIeeVMPk/edit?folder=1K6Jr6_pMZWYr9Ev4kbL6Y8VMNV8R5B93#gid=0) - feedback welcome! ๐Ÿ’Œ In the meantime, our war correspondent writes home to his wife about his experiences on the battle #fiedl. A romanced recap of the Battle of Nodes event so far: https://medium.com/elrondnetwork/tales-of-war-a-letter-from-the-front-line-950ff6b5b465 (https://medium.com/elrondnetwork/tales-of-war-a-letter-from-the-front-line-950ff6b5b465)"The toughest mission so far challenged the trust we have in one another and had us doubt our comrades. They wanted to re-enact the Byzantine Generals problem and have us risk it all on trusting just a few of us. But we pulled through, thanks to our field medic and his heavy lifting robot." โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  16. ๐ŸŽ– "5 Generals" - Mission #5.2 updates & Phase 2 Timeline Hello Nodes Team, The "5 Generals" mission had some very interesting outcomes, with all of you working together as a team, with the help of Dr. Delphi and his bot. The now famous duo that are thus awarded the completely fictitious and extremely well deserved ๐Ÿฅ* drum roll * ๐Ÿฅ ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿค–๐Ÿ‘‘ "Cyber-Crown of the 5 Shards" ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿค–๐Ÿ‘‘ - a ceremonial headpiece worn by the traditional mechs assembled from 5 Byzantium generals & their elephant robots back in the 11th century. Congratulations @drdelphi & @BoNmonitorBoT for earning everyone's trust and honorably fulfilling out your destiny! ๐Ÿค” The results are extremely interesting, because while the bot managed everything, it was still down to the player's tactics to decide how to allocate their points. Some chipped in as much as they could for their one node, some distributed points evenly between their multiple nodes, others boosted just one of them, while apparently others pooled more than 6 nodes to boost just one. ๐Ÿง The figures can be observed on the blockchain explorer here (link) (https://explorer.elrond.com/address/f41cbb0cb63d5dfbdbaea7a9dc220828523a362592e9cd6f89e517f173c4387a)and perused in a simpler form in this spreadsheet (link) (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XXFJHARKIUmBCPMe-tF2bB1dnHQX0ODM4sCa_7WHPsA/edit?folder=1gtQ6Z9c0SR8LiGlLQIEjd4REYVoROlXa#gid=287687019). ๐Ÿ“Š Obviously the mission rewards topple some expectations and create some interesting Leaderboard action. The goal of this event is of course to have fun and excitement, but above all to test the Elrond blockchain, make it better, more secure and to make sure you guys have all the right knowledge. ๐Ÿ‘‰ As we move into our more intense testing & adversarial phase, scoring will be adjusted to reward performance much more than just the uptime and missions so far. ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Our working balance approach is to make Phase 1 total max score = Phase 2 + Phase 3 total max score. This will balance the efforts so far with the intense task of running a node in a high TPS & adversarial environment โฑ Round 1 of Phase 2 will be running until we announce a new patch, which is estimated on Thursday. Scoring continues until the official announcement of the end of Round! "Man and machine, power extreme!" โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  17. ๐ŸŽ– "5 Generals" - Mission #5.2 updates Hello Nodes Team, The current version of the testnet seems stable so we've turned up the heat a bit more. We're hovering at around 900 TPS right now, so far so good. We're going to keep the current version of the testnet for a few more days and gradually increase the TPS count. In the meantime, let's get back to scheming! "5 Generals" is back, as announced on Friday. We're changing some things a bit, to make it more interesting and relevant, full details below. ๐Ÿง The original Mission #5 is HERE (link) (https://t.me/BattleOfNodes/54), we consider that as baseline with the changes below ๐ŸŽ– Mission scoring for the first 4 days of Phase 2 will be decided via one single transaction from each shard. The originating wallet must be in the shard for which points will be distributed. The minimum value of the transaction is 500 000 ERD, without considering gas. The transaction with the highest value, without gas, is victorious. The data field must include the public key of nodes and points assigned to each of them. ๐Ÿ“Š Scoring in the first 4 days of Phase 2 will be split as 50% mission, 50% a mix of uptime, earned rewards and proposed blocks. Max score per day is 10.000 points, so you can get max 20.000 points for mission and max 20.000 points for uptime + rewards. Check the formula as below: First 4 days score = ( (1 x Percent Uptime + 2 * Number of Earned rewards / (Hitrate * Max Number of Earned Rewards) + 3 * Proposed Blocks / Maximum Proposer Rate) /6) * 20.000 + Mission #5 score) ๐Ÿ’ฐ 2.920.000 score points allocated for each winning transaction. Why? (Number of community nodes online * mission score for 4 days) / (5, the number of non-meta shards) ๐Ÿงฎ Click HERE (link) (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oO2Y-4nd2PDl9IQFN-u_vzbO_YiM5e4r3WniFA6rpr4/edit#gid=0)for a spreadsheet with figures and examples and HERE (link) (https://forum.elrond.com/topic/66-scoring-rewards/) for an explanation of the terms โฑ Please send the transactions by Tuesday 19 November 18:00 UTC โ€œThe great mass of humankind possesses an unmistakable unit-identity. It can be one thing. It can act as a single organism.โ€ โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #field ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  18. I modified this script : https://github.com/ElrondNetwork/elrond-go-scripts/blob/master/windows-amd64/buildnode.bat to make it more easy to Build and run Elrond nodes in Windows PC ( Beginners Freindly ) *Things that I added on that script - Check if Go and Git is installed in the desktop , if not install it silently via chocolatey - You don't need to modify the prefs.toml to set your node name, the script will do it for you by typing your desired node name - Also , it will create automatically a batch file to start your node like this script : https://github.com/ElrondNetwork/elrond-go-scripts/blob/master/windows-amd64/start.bat Watch the video guys : Here's the script : https://github.com/tramyargabam/elrond-script/blob/master/buildelrondnode.cmd
  19. This is a great opportunity for those who are using Windows to start using new tools that will make running a node look like buying a coffee. I am in particular an addict of Windows for more than 15 years until recently node running migrated me into Linux. Virtual Box or VMware is available to deploy if you still want to use Windows and have a full taste of Linux environment.
  20. For my guide to running nodes on VPS for free, I've added a video guide for beginners. You can forward the key files from Windows. And if you don't have many nodes, you'll have enough free credit until the end of the node battle. Who wants to get away from Windows. Now is the best time to try. Manual in Medium This video describes running one node on Vultr using Ubuntu 18.04 and one node on GCP with Debian GNU/Linux OS. I used Alwin's scripts for Ubuntu 18.04 to install and run nodes.
  21. Guys, I'm now running my nodes with the scripts os SebastianJ. In htop (install with apt install htop ) I can kill one of the node's processes with F9 (SIGTERM) and then after a second I see the node process starting again. It's awesome what systemd does, I think. ๐Ÿ™‚ What you do for, say, 3 nodes is: 1) You zip your pem files for each node ( keys-8080.zip for your 1st node, keys-8081.zip for your 2nd node, keys-8082.zip for your 3rd node) 2) You create 3 folders to hold your zipped pem files: mkdir -p ~/elrond/keys/8080 mkdir -p ~/elrond/keys/8081 mkdir -p ~/elrond/keys/8082 3) You copy each zip file to the right folder, one of the three folders you created in step 2 4) You stop your nodes with: tmux kill-server 5) You run Sebastian's scripts with bash <(curl -s -S -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/SebastianJ/elrond-tools/master/setup/setup.sh) --nodes 3 --display-name YourName --start --systemd This will create 3 running nodes with node names: YourName-1, YourName-2 and YourName-3. --------------------------------------- You can see all your nodes' statuses with: systemctl status elrond@808*.service You can restart (stop and restart) all your nodes with: systemctl restart elrond@808*.service You can stop all your nodes with: systemctl stop elrond@808*.service You can start all your nodes with: systemctl start elrond@808*.service If you just want to do these things for just 1 node, don't use 808*, but for instance 8082. Instructions and code can be found here: https://github.com/SebastianJ/elrond-tools/tree/master/setup
  22. ๐Ÿ“ฃ Announcing Round 1 of Phase 2 Hello Nodes Team, Hungry for more BoN action? Looks like meat is back on the menu! We have patch v1.0.40 for you guys, come and get it! ๐ŸŽŸ Nodes that participated in the previous rounds are whitelisted by default ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please do: Backup your keys, set up the latest version of the node, restore keys, start node โ–ช๏ธ Linux (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-linux) installation guide ๐Ÿ”น Windows (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connecting-from-windows) installation guide โ–ซ๏ธ MacOs (https://docs.elrond.com/start-a-validator-node/start-the-network/connect-from-macos) installation guide ๐Ÿ‘Œ No need to keep any old databases โฑ This announcement is in effect as of Thursday 14 November 14:00 UTC. Official uptime monitoring starts Friday 15 November 14:00 UTC, 24 hours from the announcement. Be sure to update your nodes before that time. โฒ The genesis time is Friday 15 November 14:00 UTC โš™๏ธ Relevant tags: v1.0.40 and BoN-ph2-w1 ๐Ÿ–ผ Still running on Windows? You're OK and getting 100% score for Round 1 of Phase 2. Please consider migrating towards Linux for Round 2 of Phase 2, we will only award 80% of score for Windows clients starting then (date not announced) โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
  23. ๐Ÿ“ฃ Updates about Phase 2 start, Scores and Mission #1 Hello Nodes Team, The Leaderboard (https://leaderboard.battleofnodes.com/) is now updated with all the scores from Rounds 3 & 4, including Mission #1. We uploaded the instances where the scores awarded for the Mission were less than full here, go check it out. โฑ Uptime bonus: as previously announced, we decided to grant an uptime bonus to clear up the issues from a missed network package or failed heartbeat for whatever reason. Uptime scoring is meant to encourage you guys to keep nodes running all the time, not make you angry that in spite of your scripts and expensive VPSs, you lose points. We heard you. ๐Ÿคฉ We applied a flat 2.5% bonus score to everyone, without exceeding the maximum 10.000 points per day score. This fixes the tiny differences between our 100% operators while nod doing anything for people who are offline for longer periods of time ๐ŸŽ– Mission #1 scoring - because of our "Nobody gets left behind!" philosophy, we decided to award partial scores to people trying their best in the mission. We split it in 4 parts: Transaction with proper amount, Transaction with proper info. Filling in the form, Starring the Repo. Doing at least one of those was scored. Obviously people who did the full mission got full points and are way ahead of the rest. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Please check the Leaderboard (https://leaderboard.battleofnodes.com/), check if your nodes are in the Mission #1 issues list (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xR1279hEw5kzcyAX_Z-qjsj4a9AutyGIrftQdZnDvT8/edit#gid=0), and get in touch with @SeverMM to fix anything related to transactions. No GitHub or Forms issues, I already did my best to address that individually with everyone I could. ๐Ÿ“† Patch is almost ready, testing it one more time overnight. Expect Phase 2 announcement on Wendesday and actual start on Thursday. โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก

  25. ๐Ÿ“Š Leaderboard (https://leaderboard.battleofnodes.com/) update & next steps Hello Nodes Team, We updated the scores to include Round 4 & Mission #1, go check it out. Still to do: Round 5 score and Round 1-3 uptime bonus, as decided earlier (https://t.me/BattleOfNodes/57). ๐Ÿ“† Round 1 of Phase 2 starts this week, likely on Wednesday. Throughout this round there will be a constant transaction flow from Elrond, giving nodes in Shards 0-4 the chance to earn as much as the Metachain, due to capturing transaction fees. ๐ŸŽ– Mission #5 will be back with exactly the same idea, perhaps slightly different figures (i.e. minimum transaction amount). Keep scheming. โš ๏ธ Round 2 of Phase 2 (next week) will have an interesting scoring feature - validators running on Linux and MacOS will get 100% of the score, while validators running on Windows will get 80% ๐Ÿง Why? Our innovative Virtual Machine uses 3rd party dependencies that do not play well with Windows (https://twitter.com/SasuRobert/status/1193875547375521792) at the moment. The mainnet therefore won't have a Windows native client. ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป You can still run validators on your Windows machines, but with a Linux virtual machine (https://techsviewer.com/best-free-virtual-machine-software-2018/) on top. We will share an official tutorial. Stay tuned for the Phase 2 start announcement. โš”๏ธ See you on the battle #fiedl ! ๐Ÿ›ก
