  • GitHub repo stacks-blockchain

    The Stacks 2.0 blockchain implementation

    Project mention: What To Expect In Stacks 2.1, The Next Major Stacks Network Upgrade | | 2021-09-13

    Serendipity has occurred. At the launch of Stacks 2.0, the intent was for 2.1 to automatically go live at Bitcoin block 700,000. However, due to a bug this is not going to happen — the Stacks 2.0 chain will continue indefinitely(see#2507). But, we see this as blessing in disguise. We are strong believers in multi-stakeholder blockchain governance, and we believe that Stackers and miners should also have a say in when and how breaking changes occur — it shouldn’t be just the decision of developers. Therefore, we are going to take this opportunity to make sure that when the 2.1 upgrade is ready, it will only activate with the consent of the network.

    Project mention: Should an existing Rust project switch from two-space tabs to four-space tabs to match the Rust style guide? | | 2021-11-26

    I'm the co-author of an existing Rust project that uses two-space tabs. I personally prefer two-space tabs, but was thinking that maybe we should switch to four-space tabs, since it's the standard, to make it easier for new contributors, and possibly more familiar for people looking at the code.

    Farcaster Core Library.

    Project mention: Farcaster community update April | | 2021-04-30

    Farcaster-core and -chains contain the building blocks for building atomic swap nodes. They now include logic for creating and validating transactions needed for the XMR/BTC protocol. It creates and encodes protocol messages that have to be passed between the counterparties involved in a swap. It does not include cross group discrete-log equality proofs and adaptor signatures yet. Exciting work ahead!
