Blackmoon shows two-level architecture of their smart contracts
It’s time to unveil some secrets. Today we proudly make Blackmoon smart contracts publicly available on Github (https://github.com/blackmoonfg). These smart contracts govern each and every aspect of Asset token creation, exchange, and redemption as well as the distribution of the rewards to the continuous contributors. This step is an important milestone in our goal to make the bridge between blockchain and traditional finance ecosystem a reality. It took us half a year to finalize the concept and fine-tune the underlying economics to make them fast, reliable and gas-efficient.
Please read and share the post of Ilya Remizov (CTO at Blackmoon) with explanations about Achilles’ heel of smart contracts in general and specifically about two-level architecture of BMC contracts - https://news.blackmooncrypto.c...

Hopefully you’ve been noticing the increased volume and variety of activities that we’ve been getting involved in over the last few months. These have been across areas including senior level appointments to drive key functions, raising our profile at industry events and educating the wider public about digital assets and what we do. But this doesn’t mean the technology has taken a back seat. Quite the opposite — in this latest development update we’re really excited to be able to give you a first look at the user interface for the OAX platform.
During the first phase of the development, the back end obviously took priority. But recently things reached a point where we could begin the design of the front end and connect it up to the back end. What we’ve got so far is the screen that people trading tokens over the OAX platform will see (the UI for Asset Gateway owners will come next). It’s designed to be user friendly and intuitive, fitting in with our philosophy of making digital asset trading as transparent as possible.
Of course, one of the reasons for getting the UI in place is that we are promoting the project much more. We aim to have a full demo ready for Consensus next month and are looking forward to giving delegates there a tour of the project!
Putting in place the UI is also allowing us to undertake testing. A fully functioning, safe platform is obviously our aim and we will be testing it thoroughly by bringing in some expert traders to put it through its paces. We’re also making sure that it’s robust and conforms to the high governance standards we’re committed to promoting at the OAX Foundation. To that end, we are examining all procedures on the platform so that transparent and proper use is stuck to by all potential users.
IMPORTANT NOTICE — We will only ever communicate news and updates about the OAX project via the OAX Foundation’s official channels. Please make sure you are following these:
Any other channels purporting to be OAX are false and the information they provide should be disregarded. We’re regularly monitoring for false channels and actively working to have them shut down. To report any false channels you find, please contact us:[email protected].
Important Announcement for the SprintX Community New Date of phase 2 PrePre-Sale
Our priority is to our user community first, especially when it comes to running our ICO. It came to our attention earlier today that there was a vulnerability found in our Smart Contract. As a result, our Phase 2 sale which was scheduled to start today (April 23rd 2018) has been postponed until Thursday May 3rd 2018.
The following new dates for our Pre Sale and Public Sale will be as follows:
- Phase 2 Presale — Thursday May 3rd 2018 to Thursday May 17th 2018
- Public Sale — Thursday May 24th to Thursday June 21st
We believe that it is essential that we continue to adhere to a high standard of quality and security when it comes to our user community of users, investors and followers. Our goal is to be one of the most successful ICO’s out there. We have already raised $15M during our private sale and are excited about getting our Phase 2 ICO underway.
For now our priority is to ensure that our smart contract is secure and deployed so that we can kick off the next round of funding. We also believe it is imperative that we are open and transparent with you and look forward to sharing more news about the project very soon!
We thank you for your Support and continuous commitment to our team and this great project.
Good things are worth waiting for!

ARK Hackathon Projects Have a New Home Under One Roof
One of the core missions of ARK is education. We place a large emphasis on pushing awareness of blockchain technology and ARK in particular. By supporting hackathons we are able to connect with young developers and expose them to a wider field of view of the blockchain world. Participating in blockchain education is an exciting way to help steer the direction of the future as we enjoy taking a lead in the education of future blockchain developers.
As such we have made a dedicated Github repository containing all Hackathon projects (using ARK) housed under one roof. Anyone will be able to see, contribute, brainstorm and connect with other fellow ARKathoners.
Over the past year ARK has sponsored and attended several hackathons. The quality of projects constructed were excellent and the level of attention directed toward ARK was great. 24–36 hours of hacking by these extremely talented, young and enthusiastic developers produced results that were truly mind-boggling at a rate that would put some senior developers to shame. And now, with the release of our ARK Deployer, hackathon participants will be able to have their own blockchain up and running in well under an hour.
We felt that is was necessary to have all ARK sponsored projects from all hackathons located in a single place. So far, all hackathons have been wildly sucessful and we cannot wait to see what brilliant ideas young developers will come up with in the future!
If you want to join the ARKHackathon team to open/manage your own repository, please reach us on ARK Slack and we will help you to jump in. We view this initiative as a way to gather a pool of developers that can be reached when developing the next big thing on ARK!
Developers! don’t forget that it’s never too late to get involved with ARK! If you are not able to attend hackathons you currently have two options:
BOScoin Newsletter; April 24th, 2018Distributed Development; Parallel Progress (HINT: Testnet)
Our development team has split! the development into parallel pieces of work! Below provides an overview of how this all connects.
This relates to ISAAC and the maturing of this protocol for incorporation into our final BOSnet.
The consensus algorithm, when finalized, will be the modified Federated Byzantine Algorithm, using the consensus by BOS’ quorum structure and rules to achieve the balance of safety, liveness and fault tolerance for our ecosystem.
This is the BOS version of the smart contract, the difference is that, as previously mentioned in an article, Trust Contracts will be built to be decidable using a Timed Automata theory approach. Work has been ongoing to understand how to structure this element, in terms of data and and workflow.
Foundational Protocol — HINT: TestNet Date
As Tokennet was released in October last year using the Stellar Protocol, our team here are working on a release to use the stellar concept, but our development coding.
Estimates are that this work should have a prototype for testing, aka TestNet, targeted for June this year.
What this will enable is an easier integration when we have all the elements for BOSnet ready.
We understand that there have been talks about different dates on when TestNet is, or was — and we apologize for the delay. Part of our communications alignment work will be to ensure a single message.
Sauce me up
Current work on the mobile Tokennet App Wallet is progressing, with the source code for our first prototype to be released this Thursday! Please keep an eye out for it!
Counting on Whales
WhaleX has officially released a countdown on their website to when the exchange will open.
Good news: WhaleX has advertised that BOS will be among the first listed at open
Better news: To support the launch, WhaleX are offering 2 events where members can earn BOS via an airdrop and/or a code hunt
Not so good news: Unfortunately the site and events currently target the Korean community, where to participate, you need a Korean phone number.
For more information, you may contact WhaleX via their website.
