Website | White Paper | Initial Distribution Program | Twitter | Reddit Allvor is the first cryptocurrency issued in the XRP Ledger with a focus on e-commerce. Allvor proposes integrating the XRP Ledger’s superior technology with systems and protocols used in e-commerce as a way to boost the cryptocurrency use on a global scale. The XRP Ledger, which is developed by Ripple Company, is the best and most efficient distributed database technology ever made. In the next years, the best and most consistent blockchain technologies will transparently integrate and operate with the various layers and protocols required to conduct financial and business transactions. The Allvor Project will be focused on developing and encouraging the development of such integrations in order to promote the widespread use of the ALV token along with the systems that support the trade of products and services, ranging from small virtual stores to large e-commerce players. The ALV token is stored in a Ripple account, along with XRP. Users can manage their balance, send payments and trade ALV by using the same Ripple wallet they use to store, send payments and trade XRP. Initial Distribution Program The Allvor initial offer will be free and for the community. The initial circulation of ALV will be performed through the free distribution to Ripple accounts created until March 27, 2018. If your Ripple account was active on this date, you may receive ALV through this Program. The amount of ALV to be received corresponds to the amount of XRP available in the user’s Ripple account at 01:00 (GMT 00) on March 28, 2018, (Ledger 37539810), with an increase of 30%, added to the standard amount of 5,000 ALV. Read More: https://allvor.org/initial-distribution-program/ Get ALV in your Ripple Account: https://allvor.org/get-alv/ Payment Solutions Allvor’s main development and partnership efforts will be aimed at enabling the effective use of ALV in businesses. These efforts will contemplate numerous actions, but we would like to highlight 5 main actions: Plugin for the Magento platform; Plugin for the WooCommerce platform; Integration with Online Payment Providers (such as Stripe and others); Integration with Cryptocurrency Debit Card Providers (such as Wirex and others); Hybrid Payment Gateway. ALV Trading ALV will be progressively included in the main cryptocurrency exchanges. Nevertheless, at launch, it is already possible to buy and sell ALV by using the XRP Ledger’s decentralized exchange platform, using XRP to buy ALV. So, to buy ALV, the user must have an active Ripple account, add a trust line for ALV, use a wallet that allows them to create and execute purchase/sale orders on the XRP Ledger and have some XRP to make their purchase or bid. If the user does not have a Ripple account, they should use one of the available wallets, create an account and buy some XRP first. Distribution The ALV tokens have already been fully issued and are not subject to mining. The complete issuance has 100,000,000,000 ALV. The projected Allvor distribution considers up to 5% of distribution at release, including our Initial Distribution Program, Marketing, and Dissemination, among other actions. ALV will gradually enter into circulation, according to the demands of the project, and the forecast is that it will only reach full circulation by 2030. Block Explorer As part of its efforts to ensure the reliability and transparency of the XRP Ledger transactions, Ripple Company has developed and maintains XRP Charts. All transactions in ALV are publicly registered and are accessible for consultation on the network, in the same way as it happens with transactions in XRP. You can access XRP Charts to search and check all ALV transactions. Check the latest ALV transactions on the XRP Chart: https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/markets/ALV:raEQc5krJ2rUXyi6fgmUAf63oAXmF7p6jp/XRP Allvor will soon develop a specific ALV transaction consultation channel, which can be used in conjunction with the Ripple Charts information, but exclusively showing the ALV-related transactions.

=========================================== =========================================== Welcome to Swap, where anything you can do, we can do better and for free. These words were part of the birth of Free Haven Protocol [XFH], the trolling joke coin created to poke at the integrity of the devs of Haven Protocol. However, what started out as simply something for lulz has been transformed into a community project to build and bring a fair, efficient and stable blockchain to the crypto ecosystem. We feel that most projects out in the space today cannot successfully meet all three criteria above and it is our goal to do something about it, for free. Fair. What does fair mean? If you were to define it as an adjective, it would be defined as “in accordance with the rules of standards; legitimate”. Defined as an adverb it is “without cheating or trying to achieve unjust advantage”. Both definitions play very much into what we are attempting to achieve with Swap. Almost all coins in existence are commanded and their fates set by a select few who have the means and access to dictate the coin’s direction. This could include the developers themselves, exchanges, large farms and even eccentric personalities with the finances to support their view points. You see them leverage their unique positions by changing the codebase of their projects to suit their needs. Instead of allowing free market principles to reign along with the consensus mechanism built into the collection of software that makes up a coin’s environment, they checkpoint and write mechanisms to prevent democratic decision making in the blockchain’s development. That is to be blunt, literally rewriting the rules. What happens to rules of standards and legitimacy? It’s gone Jack, totally out the window. When it comes to looking at the definition as an adverb, we also want to level this playing field. Everyone knows that (or should know!) ultimately, profitability as a miner depends on one simple ratio which is cost per hash. Now there are several ways to improve your cost per hash but not all of us have access to all these paths. The simplest way to improve your cost per hash is by paying less for your electricity. Large farms locate to areas of cheap power for exactly this reason. The average Joe doesn’t necessarily have the ability to do this. Hardware is typically the next easiest way to improve your cost per hash. You don’t really have to have any brains for this department, you just need money, lots of it. If you have the money to burn, you WILL find ways to purchase equipment that far exceeds the capability of what the average Joe has access to. There IS private hardware out there. Not only do manufacturers of mining equipment sell you their used no longer latest and greatest, but there are private companies out there who build their own equipment and write their own software who are vastly more efficient than the average Joe. The last major piece for optimizing your cost per hash is in the mining software itself. Do you notice how each release of mining software yields greater and greater returns? There is always at least a single digit percent increase in mining speed over the last version. Do you think maybe it’s possible there are other mining programs out there who have unlocked the Gordian Knot’s of the increasingly complex algorithms used by coins today? Those knots are supposed to protect the average GPU from the FPGAs and ASICs right? Maybe what they are really protecting are developer advantages which lead to personal profits! So, what happens when you have a coin ecosystem that is fair? An ecosystem where the decision and implementation of the algorithm creates fairness without the ability to have secret advantages? What happens when there is no premine to be taken advantage of and no governance fee giving a select few a steady income for doing no work which ends up devaluing itself? What happens when the codebase is open for all to inspect and add upon, letting the ecosystem itself decide what features should be implemented or abandoned? What happens when no device is favored, and everyone can have access to the same cost per hash excluding what your local energy cost is? (Somethings are simply outside of a developer’s control, right?) Do these characteristics build a “fair” ecosystem that would attract miners of all kinds? We think so. All this talk of fairness sounds great, but nothing can be fair if you haven’t taken the steps to protect the underlying technology that allows your ecosystem to exist in the first place. If you look around the coin world today, you will see that most of the coins today are broken. What do we mean by this? That almost all coins are vulnerable to attack from a variety of vectors and that more importantly, their dev’s either don’t care or do not have the knowledge and skill to fix their coin. We find this to be an extremely sad state of affairs, and the fact that the general crypto populace doesn’t even consider these factors to be highly disturbing. If you are an investor in blockchain technology, how can you accept investing into a project that cannot protect the foundation of everything it builds upon? An old book talks about castles being built on sand. I think that’s quite an appropriate description for the majority of current blockchain projects. We have touched on the three major core values that we have which are fairness, efficiency, and stability. Now we would like to discuss how we are going to achieve these objectives and what we have already accomplished to date. Free Haven Protocol was a fork of Haven Protocol which is ultimately just a fork of Monero. However, we started with a genesis block and changed several key parameters to how the blockchain functioned in effort to begin with some basic network security. This included a custom 15s block time and a custom version of the CryptoNight algorithm that we ended up calling CN Superfast because it is CN Heavy with a 2MB scratchpad and one quarter the iterations. The faster block time creates many blocks a day which allows even small pools to win blocks rather frequently. This helps with miner distribution as being on the biggest pool to get frequent payouts no longer matters as there are EIGHT times more block per day but at one eighth the reward for the same emission. Transaction fees were also increased which gives incentives to mine more than just empty blocks but overall, the transaction fee is expected to drop for the end-user due to a much smaller transaction size. At max block size, miner reward is expected to increase which makes up for the extra resources necessary to process the bulletproof transaction. Meanwhile the custom algorithm change prevented us from being Nicehashable. Once community support started to build behind the XFH project, we quickly realized this was taking on life above and beyond our initial gag. While we had already created something interesting that beat Haven on several key points for existing technology (custom algorithm, no premine or fees, network distribution diversity and transparency), we realized we would need to step it up if we were to really make a statement as to how much **** exists in the current crypto ecosystem. This included the need for a rebranding and some rethinking of the fundamentals of our foundation. We have decided upon the name Swap for several reasons. First, fundamentally, Swap is one of the most basic functions of an asset. Assets are held to eventually Swap for another asset. If you want to become more philosophical, you could say that Swap was chosen because people need to Swap their way of thinking about crypto. They need to realize that the fundamental principles that created the first major digital currencies have been Swapped to something that no longer fulfills a vision of fairness and consensus, real democratic principles. It’s time to Swap the greed and unfair playing fields back to what they were intended to be. We envision this project as a guide of what crypto “should” be. Unlike the vast majority of crypto projects, the core team associated with this project is mostly not anonymous. While none of us are actively promoting who we are, we aren’t exactly hiding it either. We are quite transparent and all decision making processes in the birth of this coin to now is readily viewable on our Discord. We believe this is a testament to the fact that we simply want you to base your opinions not on who we are, but on the technology this project brings to the crypto ecosystem. We also put forth a call for any developers who would like to help build an ecosystem based on principles of fairness and openness to join us. This is a community project after all! Our ultimate goal is to create a stable blockchain that developers can build their products on top of without fear of some random agent bending the blockchain to their will, upsetting the desired stability necessary to take crypto to the next level of global acceptance and use. Also, differently from most of the crypto projects, Swap has ZERO premine, ZERO dev fees, and ZERO founders rewards. It's a community project after all, and that will never change. We started with RingCT at block 0. We have version 2 transactions from block 0 along with dynamic fees. The reward tax will not change, only other taxes. Our chain is more consistent than Monero’s as we started with the majority of improvements that Monero implemented over time. At block 150k, we completed our rebase to the Monero codebase 0.13.04 and we activated our bulletproof implementation. Also, from block 150k, we can now merge their patches easily in the future yet still go our own path. Speaking of going our own path, we are convinced that the CryptoNight algorithm (and all its variants) is garbage for anything but Monero. The algorithm promotes through its virtues of obfuscation, inequalities that cannot be compensated for. This required us to abandon CryptoNight in search of an algorithm or algorithms that more serve our needs for fairness and openness. To summarize in brief, we explored primarily Cuckaroo (same used by Grin) algorithm variants for our proof of work. The simpler the algorithm, the less advantage those with the means shall have. A simple algorithm that is open source is the first step in securing the block chain as it helps to level the playing field. Swap has forked at block 555,555 to a new and unique variant of Cuckaroo which we have labeled "Cuckaroo29s". We have in essence smashed together CryptoNight with Cuckaroo so that we can retain the desirable features of CryptoNote but also improve our network security with a better pow than any CryptoNight variant which has been proven to be easily FPGA'd or ASIC'd. There are a tremendous amount of improvements with the changes that have been made. Cuckaroo demands also far less CPU power to validate the blocks and sync with the network than CryptoNight and its variants. Join our Discord to learn more. Our whole history is carved there from the beginning. =========================================== Specifications - Coin symbol: XWP - Total supply: 18,400,000 coins before tail emission. - Tail emission: ~157,680 coins each year (starting at year 8) - Decimal places: 12 - PoW hash algorithm: Cuckaroo29s (variation of Grin's Cuckaroo29) - Block time: 15 seconds - Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm: Monero DAA - Genesis block: 2018-11-16 (November 16, 2018) at 09:06:03 (UTC) - Premine: No - Founders reward: No - Developer fee: No - ICO: No Website https://swap.fyi/ Project's GitHub https://github.com/swap-dev/swap Project's GitLab https://gitlab.com/swapproject Wiki https://github.com/swap-dev/swap/wiki GUI/CLI Wallet https://github.com/swap-dev/swap/releases/ Ledger app https://github.com/swap-dev/ledger-app-swap/releases Paper Wallet https://swap.fyi/paperwallet-alternative.html Mining your XWP Coins Everything you need to know can be found on the Github (https://github.com/swap-dev) repository and in the main page (https://swap.fyi/#miners).

Swell / Swift Rumour
Fxstockbroker posted a topic in SWELL's TopicsIt would seem all major stakeholders are in agreement something is SWELLing behind the scenes at Ripple. Yet we are not seeing the movement north in the crypto you would expect right before a big announcement to take advantage of the opportunity. I guess Ripple stakeholders are cautious and the recent indicators with Ripple continue to expand their presence around the world with bank connectivity and a larger presence with new offices in many key financial areas around the world it would seem the currency's value has already taken these into account. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the incredible Coincidence of the timing and location of the major SWIFT announcement conference. Industry Insiders are suggesting there may be massive news in the works. What could it be? Possibly announcing a JV with Swift? Some type of Technology Exchange? Both Swift and Ripple making major announcements at the same time and location. It is potentially one of the biggest announcements in crypto's history. Ripple & SWIFT will announce a full-fledged partnership and a interbank payment sytsem linking SWIFT into the Ripple network. Connecting SWIFT would then connect every bank and payment service in the World including government Central Banks. Providing and facilitating this solution to the SWIFT network providers is the perfect scenario. This would be far more effective than convincing and on boarding each and every bank as World wide banks are connected to one current hub SWIFT. As we all know SWIFT is behind in developing an effective block chain solution. It only makes sense they would look to Ripple as the perfect solution. Where would XRP move to with an announcement like that..... well the sky's the limit and SWELL she goes.......
Seriously, there was no. New. Announcement. Check ripple.com for news. Check out nikb's twitter He will keep you up to date on this stuff. Be patient. It isn't just about price, but implementation. Just. Be. Patient.
[ANN] Rippex Bridge is now international!
Rippex posted a topic in Gateways and ExchangesHello Ripplers, We at Rippex are very proud to announce our internationalization - yes! Ripple’s RCL is gaining awareness lately and we think this is an excellent moment to invite everyone to join us. About Rippex Rippex was founded in 2014 as a pioneer, being the first ripple gateway for BRL and one of the first distributed ledger startups in Brazil. Since its foundation it has been delivering reliable services to happy and loyal customers. An year after its foundation, Rippex welcomed 2 of the former leaders of PagSeguro, the biggest e-commerce PSP in Brazil to compose its business development team. Since its foundation Rippex developed connections in the local market, participated in fintech events as speaker and today it is the main Ripple-related name in LATAM. We have been recognized as one of the leading companies in payments and cryptos in Brazil. Rippex is developing other projects related to payments and financial services that should be announced this year. The Rippex team is passionate about distributed ledgers and the impact they can have on how we live our lives. Follow us on: https://twitter.com/RippexNet https://www.facebook.com/RippexGateway/ What is the Rippex Bridge? It is an automated two way bridge between the Bitcoin Blockchain and the Ripple Consensus Ledger that completely ignores and never has any kind of contact with users’ secret keys. It allows Bitcoin holders to deposit BTC.Rippex (BTC issued by Rippex in RCL) in a Ripple account and Ripple accounts to send Bitcoins to a Bitcoin account using whatever assets they hold that has some liquidity against XRP. Why use the Rippex Bridge? Simplicity and interoperability are key features for traders, especially heavy traders that have to manage several accounts in different exchanges using GUI or bots. Rippex Bridge requires no API integrations, only configurations on the Rippex account from time to time. Once the Rippex account is properly configured, traders can send bitcoin from/to exchanges to/from Ripple Accounts unlimited times without having to login at Rippex again. Used along with our desktop wallet or any other application that keep private keys locally, traders can move BTC between Ripple, exchanges and personal bitcoin wallets very easily. How does it work? Create and configure your accounts Create a Rippex account at https://rippex.net and wait for the account validation; Rippex accounts don’t store neither bitcoin nor Ripple secret keys; Create a Ripple account using whatever wallet you want and activate it (we offer a desktop wallet so users can manage their keys locally); BRL users may get some XRPs from our giveaway to activate their Ripple accounts; Depositing Bitcoins (see this article in our beautiful help center) Add your Ripple account to your Rippex account; Create a trustline for our BTC issuing address: rKxKhXZCeSDsbkyB8DVgxpjy5AHubFkMFe; After some minutes you will see a Bitcoin deposit address linked to your Ripple account; Send Bitcoins to this address and you will always receive BTCs in your linked Ripple account; Withdrawing Bitcoins (see this article in our beautiful help center) Add your Bitcoin address to your Rippex account - you will receive an address + destination tag linked to that address; Add the address + destination tag as a contact to your Ripple Wallet (i.e. exchange XYZ); Send BTC.Rippex to the address + destination tag and you will always receive bitcoins in your linked Bitcoin address; Security of Funds Rippex has been safeguarding customers’ funds since its foundation with zero security issues handling digital assets and bank accounts. Our main security premises are: We do not hold any customers keys - Ripple keys are managed exclusively by customers themselves so they can keep it as private as they want; Our reserve policy is NOT fractional - For each asset issued there is one or more asset stored; We keep most of the custodied funds offline; The hotwallets are kept in a restricted environment and receive no requests from the internet; Only trained employees have access to custodied funds; Rippex will publish its storage addresses so anyone can check our solvency state at any time; Roadmap More coins (obviously!); More logic to the links between public ledgers; Wallet improvements; Wallet Integrations (we are open to integrate with any wallet); Decentralization of custody, deposits and withdrawals.
