I think there's a misconception here. How does one see Vitalik as "pro"? Through his appearance or his code/system architecture? No one cares about his race, age, his avatar on GitHub or his shirt.
They care about his expertise and brilliant code.
You see, I run a Monero node too. It's much larger in storage (10-20x larger) and transactions cost around 10-1000x more and half as fast. There's a lot to compare but needless to say, I run both. This is the cost of privacy.
I happily pay that cost. The things I spend money on are my business. The things like care about and love are private until I say otherwise.
It's unclear how many updates will happen per year. We don't have a set schedule. System requirements will probably depend on what features you select for the Masternode. Probably starting at around 4 cores, 4GB RAM.
I could be wrong here but I'd guess that if you opt-in for zDEX, requirements would be higher and if you support mobile wallets as a trusted node, perhaps higher.
I'm not a Masternode owner nor a dev so perhaps someone else can comment.
zDEX will be 100% standalone app, and it will NOT be part of the PIVX core wallet. It has actually no relation with PIVX at all except the fact it will use PIVX masternode network and zPIVs for anonimity. zDEX is separate project and 100% funded by s3v3n (PIVX founder)
Whitepaper will get updated once more details about zDEX get released within a couple days.
I represent the Russian-language news portal happycoin(.)clubMy goal is this: we are looking for information partners and are interested in providing our community with interesting material. In my opinion, PIVX is a very interesting project and I would like to take for example an interview with some of the team members. Can we do that?
Few notes on zDEX alpha (testnet):1. We expect alpha to last approx. 2 weeks before it is switched to low-volume beta on PIVX mainnet.2. Main objective during alpha period is to stress test its trading engine.Please visit the website for more about zDEX: https://pivx.org/zdex/
The raspberry PI is the 3B model with 4 cores but only a GB of real memory. would a swap file allow it to work. It uses very little power compared to the tower so I really want to make sure its not being used for a good reason. Its got a 16GB Sdcard so space should not be a problem. I was attracted to PIVX becaus of the low cost claims but I'm not calibrated as to what low cost is. I was comparing it to the bitcoin world and what happen to that.
This has been very helpful thankyou. I have lots more to learn but first I need to get a wallet either the core or the light. The core will take all night to load and I cant figure out how to start the light. its a jar file and the standard java -jar incantation gives me Error: Could not find or load main class tech.furszy.MainApp
I've been trying to download the moble wallet. I get a java jar file but i've been unable to run it. java -jar filename.jar incantation gives me Error: Could not find or load main class tech.furszy.MainApp. How did you get it to work?
Essentially, zDEX and the PIVX core client are open-source. Anyone can fork the code repositories. Even then, Masternode owners democratically appoint our developers. Not that it would ever happen but zDEX and Masternodes could be run on a cloned version of the code and developers could stop receiving funding. People could cease to update if the client pushes KYC. I'm not sure how idex can be decentralised like zDEX but also have KYC. Sounds a bit poo 😝
