Here’s a brief text by Monero developers concerning last week improvements:
A brief summary of the points discussed follows, a full transcription of the podcast is outstanding (can be submitted via Github Issues).
In this week’s podcast we update the progress on the DB, discuss Tippero, talk about decentralising-all-the-things, and discuss the English wordlist bug.
- Initial DB merge is about a week away.
- Tippero has been officially made publicly available, and allows for tipping on IRC, Reddit, and Twitter! For IRC, send a message to Tippero with
!commands. For Reddit, message /u/tippero with
!depositfor your address, and tip with
+amount /u/tippero optional messagein a reply. For Twitter, you can tip with
+amount @recipient_person @tipperome optional message. Until Tippero lets you link your accounts across networks you can manually move funds, for eg. on IRC:
/msg tippero !tip twitter:fluffyponyza 10or
/msg tippero !tip reddit:fluffyponyza 10.
- Not everything needs to be in a blockchain, and not everything can be decentralised with our current level of technological advancement. The Monero core team won’t crowbar decentralisation into everything unnecessarily, especially when it has potentially disastrous results.
- English mnemonics that contained “incline” or “launchpad” will need to test restoring by replacing “incline” with either “incur” or “inline”, and “launchpad” with either “ourselves” or “launching”.
