    Facebook event on Coindar


    Weekly AMA with Zine Laabidine Rezig, CEO, founder, software architect and lead developer of 3DCoin / Project Districts, held on Friday 13 December 2019.

    This is a weekly AMA, so every week, every Friday, unless exceptional cases that will be communicated in advance, or unexpected events, an AMA will take place in our official international/english Telegram group.

    📋 Do not hesitate to participate in the next Friday's AMA, we are waiting for you! 📌
    👉 Telegram group: https://t.me/Project_Districts 🗨 👥


    ℹPlease note❗
    Some questions and answers could be selected and partly reworked and listed in different order or grouped by topic for editorial reasons and in general for better readability and usability, in short, an editorial cut is given but without the intention of distorting the meaning and the content.
    Of course, discussions between users that are allowed during the AMA (if they are related to the topics covered) are normally not included in the log. Only the users' questions to the CEO/LeadDev and his direct answers are shown in the log.
    Some questions are transversal to the various main topics so they have been grouped under a topic that has been considered suitable but could also be read in reference to other topics.
    For what concerns any upcoming / future partnerships, in some cases any anticipations discussed in the chat during the AMA that mentions possible names of other parties/entities (for example, other companies or exchanges) awaiting official announcements could be left out of the log as it is to be considered an informal discussion in chat and therefore could be deemed necessary to leave them to the informality of a chat. This is therefore established on a case by case basis for each AMA log.
    The main purpose of this log is to provide users with all the technical topics discussed in order to have any answers to technical and operational issues at hand, so the rest of the topics not strictly related to technical / operational questions may not find space in this log at the discretion of the content editor.
    However, the entire original AMA can be viewed in full, starting from the following message in the official Telegram group:

    As happened for the previous AMA, this time too during the previous days the users of the Telegram group had the chance to post their questions in advance, so a list of questions was prepared to be answered at the beginning of the AMA. Then of course further questions were asked live during the AMA.
    The AMA questions can also be collected before each AMA in other channels (for example in our topic on BitcoinTalk, in our official Discord, in the local Telegram group of the numerous and active Italian community and so on).
    The list of questions collected before the AMA is available at this direct link in our Telegram group:

    🔵 Brief overview of the topics of this AMA 🔵

    This AMA was held at the end of a week a bit subdued but also tiring for the 3DCoiners because of the chain stuck for a few hours that occurred and quickly resolved at the beginning of the week, so most of the questions concerned essentially technical details on the problems occurred to the network, on the expected updates for the wallet and for the technical documentation and on the fork scheduled for the now imminent 850k block.
    As already happened for the last published logs we prefer to keep the original order of the questions and answers, because it was considered not necessary to group questions and answers by topic but to report them exactly in the original order without an editorial intervention. This also allows those who could not participate in real time (but also to those who participated) to relive a reading experience more similar to the live AMA.


    🔷 AMA's Questions and answers 🔷


    Question:
    Public testnet set up was suggested and supported by different members of community many times. Are there any special reasons you don't want to set it up and push updates there first? Or maybe you think it is just not needed?

    Answer:
    The team chose to make the testnet network private to gain more time and to improve the quality of the tests.

    Question:
    When can we expect the v15 wallet for the fork?

    Answer:
    The Qt wallet is already updated, the light wallet development still in progress.

    Question:
    When will the primenode doc be uploaded?

    Answer:
    We will update all the documents/guides and websites after the fork.

    Question:
    Whats the cause of PoSync not working correctly?

    Answer:
    We are working on patching all the known bugs in POSync and to add it to the next release.

    Question:
    Upgrade to 850,000 will be?

    Answer:
    Yes, we will publish the release very soon

    Question:
    When you activated what you called "dpow" or simply "pow" on two occasions recently to solve network problems, using only the masternodes with more than one cpu core, it was always the 3DC POSync but performed only by that type of node (with more than one cpu) or was it a normal traditional mining performed by those nodes? In this regard you can confirm that when you use the word "masternode mining" or "pow" in reference to our first industry and eco-friendly protocol "Proof Of Sync" you are referring only to the fact that there is a concept of "activity" carried out by the masternodes (which are they rewarded for their activity and not for their "stake") and are you not referring to the traditional concept of mining / pow (in which instead there is, as we know, a power and not eco-friendly competition for the solution of a cryptographic puzzle)?

    Answer:
    All the masternodes are participating in the mining when the POSync is activated.
    We switched to a standard POW to stabilize the network when we discovered that the POSync is buggy.
    The alternative solution is temporary until the full version of the POSync is available.

    Question:
    After the release of v.0.15, if it is necessary, will it be possible to activate the POW hardware or not?

    Answer:
    No, only if we detect new bugs, a very low chance.
