It has been an extended journey, however we’re getting near the end line. 2021 is shaping as much as be a fantastic yr for LTC :rocket:
The testnet is working easily, with only some bugs remaining to trace down.
I’ve up to date the one-sided txs proposal to protect in opposition to Wagner’s assaults, use stealth addresses, embrace fee proofs, and guard in opposition to replay assaults. It’s nonetheless in determined want of reviewers, however the present type of the proposal is more likely to be within the closing type (barring no new assaults are discovered).
After ending the proposal, I acquired began on the implementation of one-sided transactions. The brand new fields have all been added and current assessments fastened.
Now that the fields have all been added to the enter and output constructions, I’ll add the brand new validation logic for checking signatures and performing the brand new possession verify (See validation guidelines right here).
I’ll then add in pockets help for the brand new one-sided transactions, add MWEB performance within the GUI, and put together for a second testnet that will even embrace non-technical customers this time.
