Pre-Dev-Update Thread! Yay! :D

So, 512 bits was considered overkill. Makes sense.

Yes for data names it can later be extended when there is more data than atoms in the visible universe :smiley: till then we are probably fine, but it can be extended later to 334 / 512 if needed.

Links to something else coming down the line, which I think you in particular will really like :wink: (a bit of work needs done before we can describe it though)

Bitcoin uses 160 bits for the addresses, this video is great explaining how big these numbers actually are. It’s amazing:

I remember watching his videos when Bitcoin was big time. Some are still worthy of watching even today.
Seemed way too under-viewed.

12 posts were split to a new topic: SAFE Datachain (work in progress)

Am i right to assume, that the next thing we are dreaming about here (after upcoming testnet4 and following testnets) would be “p2p” (no droplets) alpha 1, with vault-management (maybe integrated into the launcher?) and installers for an auto-updating launcher software package?
I
am
so
excited!!!
:grin:
Thank you MAIDSafe!!! :blush:

Other than the “no droplets”, auto-updating, and integration, that sounds like community1. :smile:

Seriously, I just had an idea that is worth playing with (i.e., testing) which I’ll put on a new topic.

Any guesses what we can expect in today’s update? If not testent4, then maybe an estimate for the start of testnet4? What do you think?

Ross said early this week for testnet4. Tomorrow would be the middle of the week. :smile:

Well, Friday isn’t far away. :slight_smile: According to the last update:

TEST 4 will be released for community testing when the current work in Crust async is completed, integrated and tested. More detail of the ongoing work in Crust below.

if the testing and integration goes well, we will have a releasable Crust by the end of this week.

Yey!!! :smiley: i hope those discussions about funding won’t eat up too much time oft the devs ._____. if they need to justify everything they do again and again they won’t have time left for the things that need to be done here!
