  1. Hello, my name is Sever and I am from the internet. I am a firm believer that cryptographically secured decentralized immutable trustless automation will change the world for the better. In the Elrond team I tell stories and manage projects. In crypto I like reading about all the new exciting tech and adoption developments.

  3. Battle of Nodes “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, but the one that is most adaptable to change” - Charles Darwin In order to make Elrond a sustainable layer that will stand tall in the face of any challenge, we are building antifragility into its core. Right from the first testnet phase we invite everyone to discover what it means to run a node, get rewards, and put the network through a trial by fire so it will emerge stronger. The Battle of Nodes will feature a Testnet-as-a-Battleground environment where test node operators will be rewarded for supporting the n

  4. Hi guys. I am Lucian. I am a serial technology entrepreneur and angel investor, with more than 15 years experience in Internet and tech related businesses. I took the first step towards entrepreneurship in 2001, when, as a 21 years old student, launched the first website that later became known as Soft32.com. In 2002, I decided to drop The Bucharest University of Economic Studies where I was specializing in Finance, Insurance, Banking and Stock Exchange in order to focus on building and expanding the Soft32 platform that, at its peak, listed more than 150 000 apps and was visited by more

  7. 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 at

  9. We have discovered a flaw in our finalization algorithm where the finalized block notarized in the metachain was different than the block seen as final in a shard. Based on our findings from shard 3 I will try to describe shortly what happened and how shard 3 got stuck. The current view of a validator in shard 3 at 17:50 UTC looks like this: In shard 3 the latest seen header from the metachain has nonce 18685, which contained the highest finalized block nonce in shard 3 with nonce 17175. Looking in the blockchain explorer on shard 3 page 3 we see the block 17175 at the bot

  12. If you lose the *.pem files (aka your node's identity) where you found the public keys used to register for the Battle as a Validator, you're dead! At least you chance to get that perfect score is 😅 Make a habit of backing up these files, it's really not that hard. After you have a working node, you'll find them in the config folder that sits next to your node executable. My advice is to pack initialNodesSk.pem and initialBalancesSk.pem into a zip achive, setting up an optional password that you'll not forget, and store it on a different device or on a private file locker like Google

  13. The Elrond code imports a repository created by Cloudflare (bn256) for generating some private/public pairs of keys. Due to a bug in that repository, it wasn't possible until today to run a node on a Raspberry PI. But this evening, thanks to Adrian Dobrita (one of the core developers at Elrond), the bug was discovered. So in order to be able to build and run the node on linux / arm64, it is necessary to make the following modification : check line 63 in file mul_arm64.h and change from "ADDS R25, c3 " to "ADDS R1, c3 " That's all folks ! Enjoy 😉

  16. There's a method to update really fast and smooth your linux node. I will try to explain, keep in mind that this tutorial is useful if you had installed the node from the github repository of scripts elrond-go-scripts. If you don't have the node installed from this repository this code can be wrong. I always make the installation of elrond-go-scripts on my home, be careful with the instructions that imply this folder. 1.- Before we start make a copy of your pems: mkdir ~/backup-pems cp ~/go/src/github.com/ElrondNetwork/elrond-go-node/config/*pem ~/backup-pems 2.- Close your

  19. For installing/upgrading one or multiple nodes in Ubuntu 18.04, an alternative set of scripts can be found here. It should be self-explanatory (scroll down for instructions), but if there are questions, I'd be happy to answer them! https://github.com/ahakla/elrond-nodes This may be integrated in the official ElrondNetwork 'elrond-go-scripts' repository, but until then you can just use the link above.

A brief note: I am an entrepreneurial software dev: having built a $30B budeting tool, been CEO of my own startup (which did not viralize), and been involved in crypto for years. Chatting with Elrond about a significant involvement with validotors due to an investment stream i am soon to be involved with. I see where Elrond can go, and will do what i can to help. I believe firmly that many larger players bought in early in order to keep killing the upswing in market prices, altho

  23. Hello everyone, I'm Randy Aranta Lika and I'm from Indonesia. I'm older than how I look. Bachelor of Science majoring in Bioinformatics, master dropout due to series of unfortunate events. I had some experience on graphic design, web design, machine learning & big data analysis back in my pre-postgradute dropout days. Since then I went to make Android apps, virtual tour website, graphic designing, and video editing on my own. Now I do all this part time. I also like cooking so I ran a food stall full time around 2 years ago, but on the way doing it I realise I only enjoy cooking for people

  25. 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.

Check that your computer fits the minimum requirements for running a node: 2CPU, 4GB RAM, 200GB disk space, broadband network connection. Running multiple nodes on the same computer is possible, please consider sizing accordingly 2. Depending on your system's operating system, please follow the corresponding guide: Linux & MacOS - Node installation instructions 3.

  33. Hi guys, I've written a Medium post about how to secure your VPS (Ubuntu) by: - using SSH keys with Ed25519 encryption - setting a non-default SSH port - setting the firewall so that only outside access through a single SSH port is allowed - disabling root access from the outside - switching to user root with a simple `su -` command, without a password Check it out at: https://medium.com/@haklander/how-to-secure-your-ubuntu-vps-for-running-an-elrond-node-a5e0493646b6

I do list reputable projects on my blog at https://bountyairdroptoken.com , infact that is how I discovered this project since March 2009 and I have not look back. Let's come together and bring Elrond to the global audience.

  39. Hi Randy! That is wonderful. We are open and will support and help members who want to write and deploy smart contracts on Elrond. What kind of languages are you familiar with ? We have several VMs which support several programming languages. (IELE, C, C++, RUST, TYPESCRIPT, even Solidity with transcompiler). We already have an extention for Visual Studio Code through which you can test and debug your smart contract - currently supporting C, C++ and RUST. https://github.com/ElrondNetwork/vscode-elrond-c In this repository you can see contract examples written in IELE: https://github

  41. Contabo is by far the cheapest option, 9 euro per month for 6 cores, 16GB RAM, 400GB SSD, 400 Mbit/s port (unlimited traffic). I run 3 instances on it and the proposed block rate is not 100% successful. Those pushing the limits of their hardware will suffer! My advice is to make adjustments for the next waves and ditch the nodes you cannot run at decent performance. As more of us will migrate to Contabo, we'll be at the mercy of Contabo, they might not like our activity and they might impose limits, I hope it doesn't happen though. Most other similarly priced VPSs have a storage

  42. Hi! My first 2 nodes ever, so I decided to test 2 options, both from contabo.com 1. Win server, CPU 2 cores, RAM 4 GB, Disk 300 GB (HDD), 100 Mbit/s port, UNLIMITED Traffic - 10€ / month (4€ normal cost for technical specs, 6€ for windows server OS) 2. Linux (ubuntu) server, CPU 4 cores, RAM 8 GB, Disk 200 GB (SSD), 200 Mbit/s port, UNLIMITED Traffic - 5€ / month With team help, I managed to set up the ubuntu node, so definitely ubuntu is cheaper (no additional cost with Windows OS).

  45. I think that it can be good idea to put some media resources in elrond webpage. To make easy to the community to have the logo, some staff fotos, headquarters, fonts, and so on. It's really useful for content creators to have one official media set. Usually it goes in the footer of the main website. On this way if for example "ccn.com" wants to write a new about elrond network, they can go to get official media images.
