Breaking News: Stratis Mines 1st POS Block in C#


Hello Stratis!
We wanted to share with you a major milestone achieved by Stratis development.
We are happy to announce that we have mined the first Proof-of-stake block on the Stratis testnet blockchain utilizing our C# Full node.
This is the first documented and tested instance of a Proof-of-stake blockchain block mined in C#. Now the developers will combine the full node with the wallet layer developed for Breeze, our full node with POS will then be ready for a test release in approximately a week from now.

After this technical breakthrough, we still have a series of activities until we can have the first test releases to the community for comments and evaluation. Major tasks following this first achievement are:
Testing
Peer Reviews
3rd party audit
Industry expert audit (C# /.net)
This event puts us well ahead in our development plans according to our road map. Follow us in Slack and join our different development channels. We invite experts and developers interested in participating in the different stages of this process to create the most secure and popular C# POS Digital currency.

Feel the Breeze: Testers Wanted!

Stratis Developers Roadmap and Update (June 2017)

On this Special Update:

  • Stratis Developers Report
  • First Breeze Wallet Transaction
  • Revised Stratis roadmap

We are happy to report our consistent progress on the development of the Stratis Breeze and related Stratis Platform components. Additionally, we would like to share some highlights from our go to market strategy, to give you an idea of key messages and direction of the Stratis project.
For this special update, we asked our developers to tell first hand what they have been busy with, their accomplishments, present and future challenges.
We start with our Core Tech Developer, Dan Gershony. Besides helping orchestrate the overall development effort at Stratis, Dan is currently focused on finalizing the core nodes infrastructure and POS system.

Under the immense pressure to deliver a lot of complex tech and the shortage of time I feel we are doing well, the C# Fullnode is becoming mature with many of the major components such as the mempool, blockstore and our network builder complete. With POW mining and POS staking as the last barrier, we can soon go into beta and start optimisation and testing cycles. With the FN in beta we can start on the really interesting stuff like sidechains and smart contracts.

Some of the specific tasks that Dan has overseen include:
Fullnode:
Done – Consensus validation of POS
Next – Staking/Mining functionality, currently on collecting transactions from the mempool to add to a block to be mined. POW (mining) is already done next is POS (staking).
BreezeApi:

Done – Creating an HD wallet according to the BIP44 specification and address derivation (coin, account, change, address), Tracking of address balances, retrieving address history, persist wallet to disk, build and broadcast a transaction.
Next – Adding support for the stratis network, test and performance optimisation
BreezeGui:
Done – Most endpoints to call the Breeze api are complete.
Next – Adding both Stratis and Bitcoin tabs (whenever ready) and mainly working on the design.

Breeze Wallet Update

We want to start this Breeze update, with celebrating the great progress we are seeing in our project in terms of functionality and UI.
As we are preparing this note, we are happy to report the First bitcoin testnet transaction from inside Breeze wallet (as you can see in the picture below). Please note this is not yet a tumbled TX, but still very cool and it shows the progress we are achieving on a daily basis.

Jeremy, Dan and Pieterjan have been working hard on making Breeze the best wallet possible. Thanks to their efforts we have already advanced in the development of key functionalities :
Completed:

  • Creating and restoring a wallet.
  • Syncing wallet with the network.
  • Display of history of transactions
  • Calculation of balance for accounts

Ongoing:

  • Building and sending of transactions (Partially completed!)

Outstanding:

  • Encryption of the wallets files
  • Performance and testing review
  • Packaging of the solution.

In the words of Jeremy:

Once the above tasks are done, we still need to do some testing. Hopefully we’ll get lots of help from the community for this bit. Everything is going very smoothly, and between the dev, the UI and design teams, we’re making excellent progress.

  • Pieterjan has been working on the GUI for Breeze wallet. Together with our UI designers they have put together an amazing experience for our Breeze wallet:



The above GUI Breeze Wallet images are just a mockup and some features may not be available by the time of first public alpha release.
Completed

  • Layout (structure) of the wallet
  • Navigation between elements
  • Connection with the backend
  • Create and restore a wallet
  • Show balance, receive address, transactions

Ongoing

  • Error handling
  • Restructure to fit the design mockup

Outstanding

  • Building/sending transactions with the UI
  • Input validation
  • Styling

I’m sure we’ll get a lot of feedback on the GUI and together with the GUI designers we already have a lot of things planned for V2.
Our CEO, Chris Trew, has been busy looking into the different aspects of our roadmap and opportunities around Cloud Stratis and Azure. We have produced an updated version of the roadmap that reflects both our main development activities, as well as go to market activities for the remaining of 2017. The roadmap and corresponding milestone definitions will be posted and made available via our Wiki soon

Cloud Stratis Project and Microsoft Azure:
We are currently working on integrating Microsoft’s Azure into our Cloud Stratis Project, so that we can utilize the infrastructure capabilities of Microsoft’s offering and achieve deeper integration with Microsoft’s business units and partner programs. We are also working on completing Azure Certification for some key components of our platform. In the coming weeks Stratis will hire a developer that will be dedicated to Cloud Stratis development, this person will have extensive experience with the Azure architecture and APIs. The plan is to have a Proof of concept for Stratis Platform deployed on the Azure platform by the end of Q2.
Masternodes:
Breeze Nodes (MasterNodes):
Breeze Nodes will be available for private testing by future node operators soon. Extensive testing on the Bitcoin testnet will be completed in preparation for the production release of the Breeze wallet. We aim to hire a dedicated developer to work solely on TumbleBit and the Stratis Privacy Protocol. We will have separate posts and details about Breeze Nodes as we move closer to release.
Developer Code on Stratis Wiki:
Finally, we want to recommend all developers to visit our Wiki, where we have enabled an area where we plan to share code samples and documentation to help you get started with development on the Stratis platform.

Stratis Core Development Update


Hello Stratis Community!
We are happy to inform that at this point we consider we are well on track to accomplish our goal of having the Stratis Full Node and Stratis Cloud projects finalized by the end of Q1 2017, with the idea of presenting it at the C# Annual Conference in India. We expect to showcase by then a robust solution, with a friendly user interface and have it sufficiently tested by multiple parties before going into commercial production.
To accelerate the process and ensures we meet our final deadline we have added two new members to our development team:
Pieterjan Vanhoof (@dev0tion): Pieterjan has over four years of experience as a Full Stack .NET developer. He got interested in Bitcoin around 2013 and since then he has been captivated by the potential of blockchain technologies. He has specialized in development of wallets for cryptocurrency projects and porting Bitcoin functionalities to other cryptocurrencies.
In the words of Pieterjan:
Opportunities in the cryptocurrency universe come and go – at a fast pace. Technologies must innovate at an exponential rate, companies need to adapt at lightning speed and development teams have to stay ahead of it all. I was given the opportunity to join a team at the forefront of this exciting industry and I’m looking forward to the journey at Stratis.
Jeremy Bokobza (@Jeremy):
Jeremy is a top caliber software developer, with a thorough and extensive knowledge of .NET technologies and architecture as well as C# development. He has been involved for more than 10 years in EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) with Microsoft BizTalk Server, working with Microsoft Consulting Services in the Czech Republic and the U.K. He has also been involved with Bitcoin since 2013 and he will be assisting in the development of Cloud Stratis, the Stratis Full Node and the Stratis Wallet.
According to Jeremy: “Stratis shows great promise in the blockchain world and I’m thrilled to be joining the amazing team they have assembled in London.”
Businesses looking to implement solutions based on blockchain technologies will look for companies like Stratis to go from nothing to full throttle and I want to be part of that. ”
Also, we would like to inform the community that, in our effort to differentiate Stratis, offer the most innovative solutions for enhanced privacy and scalability and add value through a Bitcoin/Stratis symbiosis, we have added to our roadmap the further development and integration of Tumblebit into Stratis. Please expect a full press release following this post.
The integration of Tumblebit brings with it a GUI framework and wallet layer, which allows us to accelerate the development of our C# full node GUI, while incorporating the most innovative technology to enhance privacy and scalability. The full block secure payment validation system also provides us a strong framework upon which we can build our Stratis Sidechain capabilities.
To make this possible, we were required to reshuffle development priorities from our original roadmap, as they will now be contingent to finalizing the full node and full block SPV. Therefore, milestones in the roadmap such as Unity integration, Fiat Gateways, Private chains and Stratis Appliance will be delivered at a date to be determined in Q2. We will provide additional updates once we have concluded development of the key prerequisites.
We count on the Stratis community to stand behind the exciting development path we have chosen, in the understanding that it will undoubtedly increase the value of Stratis as a token, as well as Stratis Group valuation as it begins to incorporate valuable IP and high demand features into its portfolio.
