Expanse {EXP} Details




  • ABOUT:


    Expanse is a fault tolerant cloud computer built on blockchain technology that facilitates censorship resistant applications of the future.



    Expanse is a decentralized cryptographic information, application, and contract platform. It is among the first of such to be fairly distributed, democratically controlled, and community managed. Through the use of smart contracts and decentralized blockchain technology, it is run not by any one individual or group, but by the users of Expanse itself. The project is organized, managed, and operated through a decentralized organization leveraging direct influence over the platform and its future to those that matter most: our community. New features, integration, and core modifications of the expanse platform and organization can be nominated, voted on, and implemented according to the collective opinion.

    Expanse utilizes a fault tolerant peer-to-peer network to maintain a 100% uptime

    Immutable data

    Expanse maintains data integrity with blockchain technology coupled with a Proof of Work consensus algorithm.

    Synergistic

    Every smart contract stored in the Expanse blockchain can communicate with each other.



    The Expanse Project is managed by a decentralized organization operating on the Expanse Blockchain. This decentralized entity is responsible for significant decisions such as deciding what

    features or updates to be focused on by developers, managing the project's operating assets/reserve funds, and more. It consists of three divisions, each with equal power to vote on the decisions managing Expanse.



    Expanse Development Core


    The Expanse Development Core is composed of the project's founders and core developers. Knowledgeable,talented individuals with diverse technical
    experience related to blockchain technology.




    Expanse Community Collective


    The Expanse Community Collective is the soul of the project: the people that use it. It is made of the current active expanse token holders. Every one whole
    expanse counts as a voting share. Holdings less than 1 Exp do not apply.


    Expanse Advisory Board


    A third party board composed of individuals mutually elected by the Developer Core and Community Collective.These should be trusted well known members of the

    bitcoin/cryptocurrency community with long established reputations in good standing. Ideally, individuals that have a strong technical background and an understanding

    of blockchain technology, able to make well informed

    votes on technical and financial issues

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 1, No.16 – 12/15/2016
    Vast Improvements for Expanse


    Welcome to the sixteenth edition of the Expanse Newsletter! This
    publication is a bi-monthly Newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of
    each month to share the news with our community. Keep in mind that
    breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a
    great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.

    NEWS THAT IS HAPPENING NOW

    First off, everything is
    coming along great with all the real world use aspects of Expanse.
    Innovative ideas like Borderless, Borderless Charity, Voting Dapps and
    so on help to improve Expanse, but in the end, in order for all the
    dreams and visions of the team and community to become a reality and
    make a major impact, Expanse must also be a huge financial success. As
    that is what will get the most attention, participation, and momentum.
    For that to happen we need a higher market cap, volume, and price.
    Vastly improving the core code of Expanse with a new consensus mechanism
    should help all the dreams and make investors, traders, and even the
    dreamers the most fulfilled and happy. So in the past few weeks,
    we have decided to greatly improve the core fundamentals of Expanse that
    many traders and investors care about. The underlying blockchain
    consensus technology itself. Currently, the Tendermint consensus system
    is now the leading candidate. Rather than waiting for Ethereum to
    produce Casper, we plan to integrate a unique consensus mechanism to
    show everyone that, without any doubt, Expanse is on the way to becoming
    one of the most innovative and unique blockchain projects on the
    market.Christopher Franko, Dan Conway, and others had commented
    in the past how innovative Tendermint was, and how the lead developer
    Jae Kwon was a visionary who was finding new solutions to some of the
    challenges in blockchain. So after looking into Tendermint myself, I
    found this was really an excellent solution for Expanse consensus, as it
    solved so many problems at once and offered us new ways to move Expanse
    forward into the future. I discussed the possibility with the core
    team, and Chris and Dan also had some unique improvement ideas right
    away to go along with it. Taking into consideration all of our
    initial ideas and plans for the improvements, I wrote up a draft paper
    as a general guideline to start discussions, inspire more investigation,
    and get the community participating to see how they felt about it.
    Overall, they loved the idea and the community has been buzzing with the
    possible improvements to come. Here is the first paper. Please keep in
    mind this is only a rough guide and details are subject to change with
    testing and as new ideas come about from all the wonderful interactions
    within our community.

    Expanse Tendermint dPoS Bond System with (Masternode) Validators

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fFUYhg4BEAiNqfh8E7cdYCtgEjqBybiRrR4nfT3cns8/editNote:
    Validators you can consider like Masternodes for Dash. There are some
    differences, but if you understand Masternodes, then you have the
    general idea of what a Validator in Tendermint would be for how we plan
    on implementing them into Expanse.Beyond that, as we are
    forking to new changes and starting Testnet by the end of the week, we
    have decided this is the perfect time to also consider implementing
    other improvements for Expanse. As these are major changes to the
    fundamentals, we have come up with a few rough draft proposals for the
    community to discuss. One of these, or some variation or combination,
    could be implemented along with the upcoming proposed change to
    Tendermint dPoS at the same time. Assuming everything works well on
    Testnet and there are no better options, this would only be done with
    community support and consensus.Please read fully and understand
    these, then provide constructive feedback in the community Slack if you
    wish. All of these proposals would vastly increase the decentralization
    of Expanse and move the project along. Nevertheless, at this time these
    are just ideas for the community to discuss and consider. No final
    decisions have been made, other than we want to move away from POW only
    for security reasons, and dPoS of Tendermint appears to be a good choice
    to consider.

    EXP.LIMITED

    Proposal to transform the 10 million DAO fund into a permanent revenue stream for greater security, rarity, and market price.By James Clayton, Expanse Community Managerhttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1DKKxrTAKJ8hhBzcGgRoEWIbo-w7oy04vQ0YglHt90E0/edit?usp=sharing

    EXP.PRESERVE

    Redistribution & Replenishment Proposal to stimulate growth, stability, and financial security for everyone.By Christopher Franko, Lead Developer of Expansehttps://docs.google.com/document/d/1Wzna5Rki-nQFagm5bMt0dIW26fngLOyPQBuiDvj5l50/edit#heading=h.gvi2wuhoobjw http://slack.expanse.tech

    TEAM EXPANSION

    We
    are currently seeking four new highly motivated candidates to be vetted
    for joining the Expanse core contributor team. Pay will depend on
    experience and bonuses will be given for securing foreign (to the USA)
    exchanges in their respective regions. Pay also depends on overall
    activity and results. It will not be paid in advance, but every two
    weeks. Pay will be in EXP only, not BTC.We are seeking four
    International Business Development candidates who are fluent in English
    and Chinese for the Chinese Business Development position; English and
    Russian the Russian Business Development position; English and Japanese
    for the Japanese position; and English and Spanish for the last
    position.Please join the Expanse Slack channel if you think you
    are up to the task. Only part time commitment is required, but ideally,
    we are seeking people looking for permanent positions who would help
    increase the value and awareness of Expanse to China, Russia, Japan, and
    various countries speaking Spanish.

    ADVISORY BOARD


    As
    we are getting closer to launching the Expanse DAO, and as upcoming
    changes could be decentralizing the funds or perhaps creating a revenue
    stream for the future of the DAO, we are now considering candidates for
    the Advisory Board from the Expanse community to join the project. If
    you are interested in joining the Advisory Board, the best way is to be
    active in the community and help the project along with constructive
    feedback and great ideas.


    DEVELOPER TOOLBOX

    In today’s issue, we highlight
    Expanse’s implementation of the web3 javascript API. This API is the
    preferred way to quickly and easily implement compatibility with Expanse
    and Ethereum into your applications. This Implementation acts as a drop
    in replacement and is directly compatible with both Expanse and
    Ethereum. It can be used to develop Expanse and Ethereum dApps or port
    your existing Ethereum dApps seamlessly to work with both with little or
    no required code modification.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER Vo. 2, No.1 – 1/1/2017 A New Year, a New Expanse



    Welcome to the first edition of the Expanse Newsletter for the new year!

    This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th

    of each month to share happenings with our community. Keep in mind that

    breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a

    great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.


    NEWS THAT IS HAPPENING NOW

    Over the last year, the
    Expanse team has delivered on a variety of innovative concepts.
    Borderless Tech, Borderless Charity, Voting Dapps, Partnerships, and
    other creative ways of bringing Expanse into the realm of real-world use
    have been completed or demonstrated as a proof of concept. Recently,
    the team has also started focusing on improving the consensus layer of
    Expanse and some of the technology and design elements that traders and
    investors care about. This will help make Expanse more secure, and some
    of the changes will likely make Expanse more interesting to a wider
    audience.

    Changes include staking coins for interest with a new
    smart contract bond system, so everyone can easily gain rewards for
    holding Expanse. Ideas like implementing Tendermint (dPoS) delegated
    proof of stake, using Validators essentially as a masternode system, are
    currently being worked on and tested now. Speaking of that, the
    Tendermint testnet is now live, and we are excited to begin testing some
    of these new ideas. Obviously, it will take some time to complete
    everything, but we are pleased to announce that the Expanse Bond System
    can be implemented rapidly and will not take much time to start up.

    The
    really great news is that the main code work for the Bond system for
    Expanse has been completed, and it is ready for command line interface
    (CLI) based use once merged. We want to launch this with a new graphical
    user interface (GUI) that everyone can easily use so that it is
    accessible to everyone. That said, Dan Conway is currently building a
    new GUI for the Bond System, so our current plan is to release the Bond
    System first with a new custom GUI, then release the Validator system
    next. We also want to have voting on the blockchain using Expanse for
    any big decisions, so we will also have that implemented shortly.

    WHAT ABOUT THE DAO?

    Although
    we are spending time focusing on some of these exciting new changes,
    like Tendermint dPoS and the new Bond system, everything else already
    spoken about and planned should also be completed in 2017. Unless there
    are unforeseen delays, the original Roadmap v2 timeline should still
    apply for the Decentralized Autonomous Organization. Nothing is being
    forgotten or left undone, but it also makes sense to deliver on some big
    improvements first that move everything along at a better pace.

    WHAT ABOUT THE STATUS OF EXP.LIMITED AND EXP.PRESERVE?

    At
    this time we plan to implement the Bond system first as this system was
    universal in the various proposals and can be quickly implemented,
    giving rewards to people holding EXP and a reason to not just keep
    Expanse on exchanges. It also makes the most sense to later vote on the
    Blockchain for these big proposals, so we will simply finish the
    development for Expanse voting and allow actual voting on the Expanse
    blockchain. Most likely this will be based on total EXP held. While this
    is not perfectly fair, as the whales will have the most influence, they
    do have the most invested and this system cannot be gamed. So people
    will need to hold EXP to vote – the more the better.


    Here is a sample of some of the code for the new Bond system of Expanse.

    TEAM EXPANSION

    We
    are still seeking four new highly-motivated candidates to join the

    ADVISORY BOARD

    As we are getting
    closer to launching the Expanse DAO, and as upcoming changes could be
    decentralizing the funds or perhaps creating a revenue stream for the
    future of the DAO, we are now considering candidates for the Advisory
    Board from the Expanse community to join the project. If you are
    interested in joining the Advisory Board, the best way is to be active
    in the community and help the project along with constructive feedback
    and great ideas.

    RESERVE REPORT

    Expanse
    official DAO reserve is still at 10 million and in cold storage,
    untouched. This will not be used at all until the DAO is implemented,
    and then by design, only a small amount at a time can be voted to fund
    various elements of development. The team reserve is at 118783 and is
    planned to be used to fund development until the Expanse DAO is live in
    the next few months.

  • EXPANSE NEWSLETTER -Tendermint Testnet and Bond System Update


    Welcome to the second edition of the Expanse Newsletter for 2017! This publication is a bi-monthly newsletter issued on the 1st and 15th of each month to share happenings with our community.  Keep in mind that
    breaking news can come at any time, but the Expanse Newsletter is a  great overview of progress, news, and our current focus.




    NEWS THAT IS HAPPENING NOW

    In this edition of our Newsletter, we are sharing progress with Tendermint Testnet and our new Bond system, including information about how the Bond system works so that the community can provide feedback before it goes live. Starting with Tendermint: Testnet is running, but right now it is hit and miss and not working smoothly. This simply means Tendermint dPoS will take more time. We are in contact with the developers, and the issues will be worked out and resolved soon. In contrast, the code for the Bond system is already written. Expanse developer, Dan Conway, projects that the GUI for the bond system will release in days. So let’s look at it in more detail.

    The bond system, as it currently stands, is based on buying Bonds of EXP in units as small as 100 EXP each. So almost anyone can afford to buy some EXP Bonds, give them as gifts for friends and family later, and so on. The timeline at present for Expanse Bonds to mature is one year, with payments (rewards) happening every 30 days for holders. For example, let’s say someone buys 1 Bond of EXP, (Each Bond is 100 EXP), that would issue a 1 EXP reward for every 30 days. In another example, holding Bonds worth 10k EXP would pay out 100 EXP per month. So after one-year, 10,000 EXP would total 11,200 EXP, which is a solid reward for long-term holders and a nice monthly payout.  

    Note: The Timeline for locking up EXP to mature is one year currently, but it is also possible it could be 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, as well, and this is currently being discussed in the Expanse Slack.

    To help everyone better understand this system here is information from our lead dev, Christopher Franko, on how the Bond System will work: 

    EXP.BOND 

    • Traditionally bonds are investment tools used by companies and governments to raise capital. The EXP.BOND differs in that the capital raised from bonds only serves to incentivize holding Expanse – more like a self-funded, secured savings account.
    • Test EXP.BONDS will cost 100 EXP, pay a coupon rate of 1 EXP per month, and have a maturity date of one year from the time of purchase. Bonds also have a multiplier for every 100 EXP used to purchase the bond.
    • The objective of the Bond system is to incentivize buying and holding Expanse off of the exchanges.

    Example workflow:

    Alice has 1000 EXP and wants to buy an EXP.BOND. She sends 1000 EXP to the bond contract using the contract.buy function. The contract then creates an EXP bond with a 10x multiplier. The 10x multiplier essentially says, “Alice bought 10 bonds at the same time and they are all bundled together into a single bond.” Every month Alice will be able to redeem 10x the amount of the coupon, which turns out to be 10 EXP per month. After a year has passed, she will be able to withdraw her original 1000 EXP invested. So she puts in 1000 EXP, earns 10 EXP per month that she can withdraw at any time, then after the maturity date, she can withdraw the initial 1000, making a grand total of 1120 EXP or 120 EXP profit a year per for every 1k EXP invested.

    Note: A Graphic User Interface for the Bond System is being built so people will not need any technical expertise to set up an Expanse Bond. It will be very easy for everyone.

    TIMELINE

    So, when will everything be ready? The standard answer, of course, is that the project is ongoing and always improving and growing, but Q2 2017 is when we are looking at all the main features, like the DAO and everything else previously talked about being fully operational. The Bond System, however, will go live momentarily – within the next ten days.

    Tendermint dPoS will take time for developing and testing, but assuming this remains the best candidate, it is realistic to assume this could take up to a few months. Much depends on how quickly issues can be worked out and if this remains the best option for Expanse. So far, it still does appear like Tendermint dPoS is the best option going forward, but much more testing is needed to be sure.

    Make sure and check out the latest Roadmap for more detail, and we do have a new White Paper and Roadmap on the way that will be updated to reflect all the new things going on with Expanse now.
