GIN & GEA hand over communication
Dear all, We know that the past few months the silence brought impatience in the community. As we were detailing previously, we gave a lot of thoughts on how the project should move forward with more and more of GIN community’s involvement. From the start, GIN had one of ...

@everyone we're kicking off the AMA, we'll be here for an hour and then again maybe later. Just a quick note on the topics, we received a lot of questions, we want to discuss everything in the open, but please focus the discussion on the future of GIN. We'll avoid discussing whether we have been good managers or did a good or bad job with the GIN Platform private company.

That's about it, let's hear it πŸ˜ƒ


@everyone Happy Friday,

An AMA will take place on discord and telegram on Tuesday at 10am Est with both GIN Platform and GIN Foundation.

Speak with you soon,

Cheers


Dear friends,

18 months have come to pass as of the moment we started together on a great journey. GIN Platform, the first automatic masternode launching and hosting platform has grown a lot in a very short time but also encountered relevant headwinds.

These were discussed at length during the last days.

We reached a time of sorrow for all of us. We are just a couple of hours before cutting the power to the server infrastructure that is powering our service.

During the last 18 months I have started to know you, and I have ended up forging real life long friendships with some. As a result I know for a fact that most of you suffer as much as us, today.

For those of you that were besides us at the beginning and are near us today I want to ensure you that we will go step by step and make sure that the GEA mission is delivered.@everyone

πŸ“’@everyone the showcase for running geographically distributed tasks on the GIN Freighter fleet has just launched!

https://freighters.ginplatform.io/

In the lower right part of the page you can choose from one the 4 templates available (for the lack of a better UI for now) to tweet a message from different parts of the world.

What happens when you choose an option

  • Let's say you chose "One on each continent"
  • The scheduling engine looks for freighter capacity in the different regions and finds 1 in North America, 1 in Europe and 1 in Asia
  • It then schedules new Cargo on the found Freighters
  • The Cargo is the following open source code that simply tweets its geographical location https://github.com/GIN-Platform/Twitter-Location-Publisher
  • After it runs successfully, a few tweets (one for each cargo) should be visible here: https://twitter.com/FleetGin

To avoid spamming the network and the twitter account we have a limit of 1 deployment every 5 minutes.

This is just a showcase, explaining how the geo targeting will work. The idea is to build a better UI on top of the scheduling engine to allow for a very granular and graphical targeting of the locations you need, not only regions. This will be achieved as the freighter network grows.

Have fun!

πŸ“’ FREIGHTER FLEET UPDATE

Happy Friday@everyone!

Today we have released the first version of the backend for geographically targeted jobs on the Freighter Fleet. This means that now the fleet can take a command like *Run this Cargo one time on each continent*, or *Run this Cargo two times in each country in Europe*.

First deployments ran yesterday, today we have polished a few aspects and are now working on a quick update of the fleet explorer to allow all of you to trigger geographically distributed fun involving the fleet and twitter. On Monday we'll have this update ready for you to play with.

@everyone I hope your Friday's are going well and you are ready for the weekend. Tomorrow, in roughly 17hrs, the first Super Block will occur which will fund the GIN Foundation and its incentives towards GEA Protocol.

The GIN Foundation is committed to enhancing the brand affinity of the coin and GEA Protocol through a multitude of different marketing efforts, development, education, partnerships and much, much more.

Have a great weekend,

Cheers!



@everyone - ⚠ We would like to remind you that the deadline to updating your local GIN wallet to the 1.3.0 version, is tomorrow, July 10th - (https://gincoin.io/#wallets). If you already did it, no other action is required on your part.
All GIN masternodes built on the Platform were updated automatically.

If you have questions, please contact support on the Platform.


GINCOIN WALLET V1.3.0
@everyone New wallets and full node software have been published on Github and you can start updating your nodes and local wallets.

The update shall be enforced on the 10th of July 2019, so all node runners are required to update before this date.

If you host your node on the GIN Platform it will be automatically updated, you only need to update your local wallet.

The update procedure is simple, replace binaries and restart the daemon/wallet. Be sure to make a backup of the wallet.dat file before updating as a precaution.

πŸ“’ NEW WALLETS UPDATE v1.3
@everyone the new wallet code was updated earlier today but the wallet binaries have not been built yet. We are building them over the next couple of days and will do an announcement once they are available.

Code: https://github.com/GIN-coin/gincoin-core
Komodo new notaries block: 344053 (around 15 Jul)
First monthly superblock: 345600 (around 16-17 Jul)

Nothing is required at this time, we recommend to wait the official wallets to come out and only then update to the latest version. The hard fork is more than 20 days away.

GINcoin Budget Blocks on Testnet

@everyone following my previous announcement from Monday, the superblocks started successfully on Testnet and we are working on the Mainnet superblock support to release it along with the Komodo notaries update.

🐠 Timeline

  • 15 Jun - Komodo dpow code freeze
  • 20 Jun - GINcoin wallet v1.3 release with superblocks and Komodo update
  • 10 Jul - New wallet enforcement date (hard fork)
  • 11 Jul - First superblock

πŸ“’ GINCOIN BUDGET BLOCKS ON TESTNET
@everyone The $GIN testnet has been updated with the superblock functionality for the GIN Foundation and Freighter Fleet budget allocations. First superblock is scheduled at block 32300 on testnet, estimated to occur in about 24h.

All testnet node runners are required to update the node by compiling the latest master (no binaries are released).
No action is required from mainnet node runners.

Depending on how the test goes we shall plan the mainnet budget superblocks start and cycle. We target to release the production code along with the new Komodo notaries list after the 15th of June.

It’s the last report of May!

πŸ“’ FREIGHTER FLEET UPDATE

Happy Friday@everyone!

Today we have released support for continuously running workloads on the GIN Freighter Fleet. The code has been distributed to the freighters and we are waiting for all alphas to update to start distributing test workloads that run continuously (daemons) and get renewed from time to time.

This is one of the important differentiators between our work with GEA and similar "distributed datacenter" projects: the ability to run services, not only jobs.
