Stratis

World’s first seafood dedicated blockchain


Earth Twine partners with Stratis!
The first implementation of blockchain technology for the seafood industry, the second largest traded commodity on Earth! “The global fish & seafood market had total revenues of $158.1bn in 2015 …” – Wise Guy Reports
This partnership creates the first dedicated blockchain system for origin data and tracking for the international seafood industry –The Earth Twine-Stratis Platform. This platform combines collaborative technologies (Earth Twine, SPARKL, Stratis), and will provide the means for tracking mandatory data for IUU compliance. (Info below)
As seafood industry professionals, the EARTH TWINE team has created a solution born of the industry itself. In collaboration with The Association of International Seafood Professionals (AISP), Earth Twine has established the means for inclusive representation of all sectors of seafood professionals. Earth Twine’s comprehensive understanding of the unique seafood supply chain, and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR’s) has led to the development of its solution that provides a product for all stakeholders of the supply chain, small and large.
SPARKL enables our multiple tracking applications and systems to work collaboratively within legacy environments. This fuels the platform to orchestrate multiple structures and will reduce complexities in the seafood supply chain.
Stratis will establish distinct, dedicated blockchains, tokens and applications to integrate Earth Twine’s global seafood tracking solution onto the blockchain. This rapid innovation and development will transform the seafood industry by introducing unprecedented levels of trust, collaboration and settlement, in turn, increasing productivity and sustainability.
Starting January 2018, the Seafood Import Monitoring Program requires specific data related to seafood imports to be provided electronically to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. For many years, illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and/or misrepresented seafood have affected global seafood markets. The Earth Twine-Stratis Platform will significantly help solve the NOAA Compliance Standards (who, what, when, where) that will confirm and validate the information as proof positive.
A fundamental partnership for Earth Twine is Greenberg Traurig Law, the largest law firm in the USA. The Earth Twine team benefits from Greenberg Traurig Law’s international presence, industry specific knowledge of blockchain innovation, and its evolution and emerging regulations around cryptocurrencies by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Bitcoin Privacy is a Breeze: TumbleBit Successfully Integrated Into Breeze

Development Update

This week the Breeze development team reached the final major milestone in their development of the Breeze Privacy Protocol, which is the Breeze implementation of TumbleBit.
This development has allowed us to start seeing considerable volume of transactions protected by Breeze’s Privacy Protocol, the architecture developed by Stratis, which provides a safe way to anonymize cryptocurrencies.

The Breeze Wallet is now fully capable of providing enhanced privacy to bitcoin transactions through a secure connection. Utilising Breeze Servers that are pre registered on the network using a secure, trustless registration mechanism that is resistant to manipulation and censorship.
Breeze Tumbler is expected to be utilized in commercial scenarios including businesses that do not wish to reveal their customer or sensitive data for competitive reasons.
Finally, we want to share with you the latest progress on the Breeze wallet UI, so that you can start getting a feeling of the great things to come from our team.

Follow and contribute to the Breeze Wallet project: BreezeHub and look out for an alpha release of this exciting product coming soon.

BreezeHub is Here

This note is a contribution from our new team member Carlton Pringle (@carlton on Slack). One of the key missions in Carlton’s new role as Breeze / Tumblebit development Project Lead, is to coordinate the communications about progress in this exciting technology to internal teams, developers and the public at large.
As he gets more familiarized with the vision and accomplishments of our development team. He will be responsible for providing all the relevant updates and streamlining communications from the Breeze / Tumblebit team to our developers and general community.
Welcome Carlton and we wish you success in your key role, and without further ado… here is his first Breeze Update.

Facilitating Breeze Development Access

We want to simplify access and visibility for the Breeze Project, as we expect many peer reviews and collaborators to this exciting project now and in the future. To this aim we are launching the GitHub open source projects for Breeze / Tumblebit development under the auspices of Stratis.
BreezeHub hosts our TumbleBit Server Experimental build and showcases the Stratis secure node advertisement protocol, which will be utilized by the Breeze wallet to locate Breeze Tumblebit servers without the need for a centralized list. This is therefore a registration mechanism resistant to manipulation or censorship as it does not require trust in third parties.
Check out BreezeHub where you’ll find all our work on the TumbleBit Protocol in one place including code, documentation and all the latest info on the TumbleBit Server Experimental Build.
BreezeHub includes full instructions to walk you through the TumbleBit server installation. Give it a try and please reach out to our team of developers on Slack with your bug reports, suggestions, and comments.
Expect to see lots of activity on BreezeHub – including more incremental releases – as our vision of this exciting technology takes form.
BreezeHub on GitHub

BreezeHub is hosted on GitHub and can be found at https://github.com/BreezeHub.
Acknowledgements: Thanks to @zeptin and @dan.gould for their hard work on this and thanks @jeremy for your support.
TCP Server
This week also, Nicolas Dorier wrote a custom asp.net core server to replace the default Kestrel implementation that runs in asp.net core on Windows, Linux and OS X. This lightweight tcp server will be used within the TumbleBit Server in place of the previous http+json ptotocol to improve anonymity for TumbleBit users. It can be found here.

Breeze Tumblebit Server Experimental Release

Breeze TumbleBit Server is Ready to Test!
The highly anticipated alpha version of the Breeze TumbleBit Server has now been released for testing. As promised, we have been engaging in a process of incremental deliveries and in this opportunity we want to share some technical details of the release. We expect to provide even more details both from an user and an operator perspective in the weeks to come. So, stay tuned!
This release showcases the Stratis secure node advertisement protocol, which will be utilised by the Breeze wallet to locate Breeze Tumblebit servers without the need for a centralised list. This is therefore a trustless registration mechanism resistant to manipulation or censorship.
Node advertisement protocol
A high level overview of the protocol operations performed by each Breeze Tumblebit server is as follows:
1. The node operator starts up the Breeze Tumblebit Server software.
2. The node checks to see if it has registered itself on the Stratis blockchain before.
3. If it has, the tumbler service is initialised as normal.
4. If the node is not yet registered, or if its configuration has changed, the registration transaction updates and broadcast again.
Registration transaction

The registration transaction is a specially-formatted transaction broadcast by the Breeze Tumblebit Server to the Stratis network. In this release, the registration transactions are broadcast to the main Stratis blockchain.
Security features

The registration transaction contains the following information embedded inside it:
1. The IP address of the Breeze Tumblebit Server.
2. (Currently optional) TOR address of the server.
3. The port that wallets should use to connect.
4. All the information is signed by the tumbler’s private keys. This means that the signatures can be validated by a Breeze wallet when it connects to the Breeze Tumblebit Server. The registration protocol will greatly benefit from widespread testing by the Stratis community.
As this is alpha software, the tumbler is currently configured to only operate on the Bitcoin testnet. This is to prevent loss of funds in the event of errors. Once the tumbler is sufficiently stable a Bitcoin mainnet version will be released.
Please reach out to our team of developers on Slack with your bug reports, suggestions and comments.
