Skybian 3.0 Update Makes Skyminers Easier to Build and Deploy The Skycoin Project has updated its Skyimager tool and Skybian software, used to program the computers that form the backbone of its decentralized Skywire network. github.com/skycoin/skybian/releases/tag/v0.3.0 Skyimager is the name of the open-source tool used to configure and build images for the Skyminer using the custom Skybian software. The latest 3.0 release now includes support for the popular Raspberry Pi OS architecture used on the popular Raspberry Pi single-board computers. This will make creating and running Skyminers based on Raspberry Pi much simpler. (Skyimager also includes support for Orange Pi Prime and Orange Pi 3 boards, which are the boards found in the official Skyminers sold by Skycoin.) In addition to some small bugfixes and user-interface improvements, the Skybian 3.0 update also includes WiFi support, so that users can enable Wifi with automatic peering right from Skyimager on the boards they flash. Doing so will allow a board to connect and join the Skywire network automatically. Note: Current Skyminer operators do not need to perform any actions. There's no added functionality with regards to Skywire. The Skybian update is designed to simplify initial setup and help with all future Skywire deployments.

Skycoin Updates Skywire and Releases New VPN Version 0.4.0 of Skywire, the Skycoin Project’s decentralized networking protocol, is being released today with new features and bugfixes. The new update patches several known issues with version 0.3.0, includes a number of stability enhancements and performance improvements, and includes the long-awaited release of the Skywire VPN. The Skywire VPN leverages the unique network infrastructure of Skywire to provide a truly secure and anonymous VPN for users. This latest Skywire update includes reconnection logic for the Skywire VPN client and server, so that if a connection ever breaks down, it will reconnect automatically.The VPN now also features a killswitch that will prevent any traffic from leaking in the case of a broken connection, and will stop the connection from defaulting to a less-secure non-VPN source. The update also removes the separate hypervisor binary in Skywire, and includes various fixes and improvements to Skybian such as headless wifi setup and UI improvements. The update can be installed using the “update” feature introduced in Skywire 0.3.0. Existing users can find an upgrade guide here: github.com/skycoin/skywire/wiki/Upgrade-Guide-v0.4.0 New users start here: github.com/skycoin/skywire/wiki/Skyimager-User-Guide

Decentralized cryptocurrency exchange XBTS.io is set to offer its users the ability to buy, sell, and earn Coin Hours on its DEX beginning July 29, 12:00 UTC. Skycoin automatically generates a parallel currency called Coin Hours (SCH) at the rate of one Coin Hour generated per hour, per Skycoin. While Skycoin has been tradable on major exchanges for many years, XBTS represents the first time Coin Hours have been made available to trade on an exchange as a separate and distinct crypto asset. XBTS DEX is a BitShares-based decentralized exchange, which means that Coin Hours will have 45 trading pairs the moment it is listed. What are Coin Hours? Skycoin is a deflationary currency, with a total supply ultimately capped at 100 million coins. Coin Hours, on the other hand, were designed to be an inflationary currency with inbuilt deflationary control mechanisms, encouraging users to spend and trade Coin Hours instead of Skycoin. In short, Coin Hours are: - A commodity currency backed by the digital asset of bandwidth on the Skywire meshnet. - The basis of the first bandwidth market in history. - A form of interest on your investment in Skycoin. - A way to keep your transactions free - An anti-spam mechanism which prevents people from attacking the network with many tiny transactions.

Skycoin Launches Skywire Mainnet The Skycoin Project has announced the launch of the Skywire Mainnet, the foundation for Skycoin’s vision of a truly secure and decentralized Internet. Skywire was conceived as an answer to the myriad shortcomings of our current Internet, including privacy failures, censorship, net neutrality concerns, and economic limitations. Skywire is intended to become a scalable peer-to-peer wireless mesh network, where all traffic is anonymous and end-to-end encrypted. The software-defined network (SDN) consists of Skyminers — custom-built hardware devices that serve as nodes providing processing power, bandwidth, and storage space for the Skywire network. Node operators on the network are rewarded for their service through cryptocurrency micropayments executed on Skycoin’s third-generation blockchain. In addition to providing an easy way for Skyminer owners to monitor and administer their respective nodes from anywhere in the world, the Mainnet provides a platform for developers to build and deploy decentralized apps onto the Skywire network. The addition of small antennas to Skyminers will allow operators to become literal Internet Service Providers to their communities, connecting to other nodes and building a resilient mesh network to which anyone may safely connect via WiFi.
