Are you interested in learning some of the more technical processes behind crypto - like mining? ANON is committed to helping people get involved in the deeper levels of cryptocurrency: its not all just about trading or holding! We have a new webpage to help explain a little bit about mining, and what a fledgling home-miner would need to begin. Here, you can find information and resources such as: what graphics card you may need, and a handy mining scripter to help you start mining ANON from your home computer, for example. If you have 4GB of RAM, and a decent graphics card, you should see if mining ANON is something you would like to do! All you need is your computer, the new mining scripter we have released, a wallet address, and internet connection. We have also launched an official ANON mining pool - xeropool.com:8080/ - with ultra low fees of 1%. The fees will go towards the pool infrastructure costs and maintenance. Please support this pool when mining ANON, especially if other pools control a large percentage of the hash. Find out more about mining ANON at our official telegram channel t.me/ANONFork
ANON is pleased to announce that trading for our coin is now available on STEX exchange www.stex.com/ After a tumultuous January, it was evident that expanding liquidity options was essential for the continued growth and progression of the project. The core ANON team recognized that choosing an exchange that was well matched to the coin dynamics - and its ardent community - would be a vitally important component of the process. We took note of dialogue on our socials during February, and further examined the various exchanges being advocated. The team then took careful measure of the principal options, then reviewed and compared metrics to gauge suitability. After honing in on an exchange that was active, well-regarded, and relevant for ANON; the team then verified contact authenticity to ensure the security of funds for transfer. STEX has now completed internal testing, and has made ANON available to trade against BTC. Many thanks to the STEX team for swift communication and expeditious integration! We believe that our community will enjoy trading ANON on STEX. As always, we were happy to listen and subsequently incorporate their suggestions to bring this new listing to fruition.
"I love it when a plan comes together..." Thanks to our Masternode Operators voting in the overwhelming affirmative - a resounding 103-yes to 5-no vote (out of 158 total masternodes) - our first Superblock proposal was a success! ANON is now listed at masternodes.online/currencies/ANON/ Anyone can make a proposal, you don't have to be a Masternode Operator to do so. Proposals cost 100 ANON - and every month or so, a superblock is created and paid automatically. If you want to get more involved in cryptocurrency - this is your golden opportunity. Links to our socials at anoncrypto.io/contact/ We look forward to seeing you on Telegram or Discord, and hearing what you have to say.
The next chapter of ANON is about to begin.... The team is very proud to announce that SKELLERS, the well-known and highly productive developer in zk-SNARKs circles, has been appointed to the lead dev role at ANON. We have already begun the on-boarding process, and will announce his new support team soon. Please drop by our Telegram or Discord (links from anoncrypto.io/contact/) and make him feel welcome! We are looking forward to the new perspective and innovation that Skellers will assuredly bring.
The ANON team has now completed the ZCash vulnerability update. The burn and supply audit at block 48,500 was a SUCCESS, and we can confirm that the vulnerability is now closed, and was not used against ANON. Supply read immediately post burn: ▪️ T-ANON (transparent) : 8,261,391 ▪️ Z-ANON (shielded) : 0 We have tested sprout z-transactions (groth16), and normal operations may now resume. Thank you to our community for your cooperation and efforts to ensure this process was a success!
I am pleased to announce that ANON's first superblock has been generated! Every month or so (4380 blocks to be precise), 10,950 ANON is created to fund proposals that have passed through the masternode voting system. No winning proposals, no superblock! Many thanks to the masternode operators that voted for the advertising strategy proposal, we hope to see another successful one made and passed for the next superblock, at blockheight 52,560. Important reminder: Please don't forget to have all shielded ANON – that is, ANON in z-addresses – moved to a transparent (An) address by block 48,500. Don't wait, do it now. This is for our update to close the ZCASH vulnerability, where we will also conduct an audit to verify supply. Empty your shielded addresses, and update your wallets and masternodes. Visit our website anoncrypto.io/ for links to our socials and github. Remember – ANON left in z-addresses will be permanently removed from supply! You must move it now! !!!
We wish to inform you that a vital update for ANON will occur at blockheight 48,500 - forecast to fall on April 19th, 2019. The purpose of this update is to close the ZCASH vulnerability, as described in our earlier communications. The new ANON version release will be available on our Github repository from the end of the week, Friday April 5th. It is extremely important to understand that shielded Z-address ANON (literally ANON in an address beginning with a 'z') will be permanently and irrevocably removed from circulation at Block 48,500. The reason for this action is to allow an audit of transparent ANON to be completed, verifying the integrity of our supply. All holders, traders and miners of ANON are encouraged to further review the details in the NEWS section of our recently revitalized and relocated website: anoncrypto.io/update-anon-zcash-vulnerability-fix-timeline/
