🕑 How Much Time Per Topic?

Hangouts will be at least 45 minutes long, but depending on attendance and projects/topics to be covered may last up to 60 minutes. Given this, we will try to stay with 5-6 core topics and will fit in others where possible.

⛒ Is Any Topic Off Limits?

Yes. We reserve the right to learn from the newest trickster trolling steemit consistently searching for way to insert chaos into the equation and devise future strategies for negating these. Naturally if these efforts become ham-fisted attempts at shutting down free speech in honest conversations, the audience will hold us accountable.
But with that said....pretty much anything can be covered--even up to and including current events. However, I personally will only be voting up stories that touch the blockchain in some way shape or form and will be asking the community to downvote absolute Rubbish! ;)

These tokens give their hodlers the power to Summon a Whalevote to posts without having to pay for attention. And they are only given to people who Win Contests and do other things of value to the community!

Stealth on BitShares - Development Phase II

Suggestion duration: 5 minutes

Christopher Sanborn has written a summary of various stealth features that he is researching as possible additions to the existing stealth features that are already in BitShares.

"Stealth is a constellation of solutions!"

"An initial round of Stealth development succeeded in implementing Confidential Transactions (CT) in March of 2016 following BSIP-0008. CT provides two major features: value-blinding and stealth addresses. These features, while important, are still very susceptible to chain analysis. ... In fact, casual users of Stealth may be receiving little to no privacy benefit from the features as currently implemented.

"Thus, additional features and measures are still required to provide acceptable levels of privacy to the users of the Stealth feature.

"Towards that end, I have written rough drafts of six BSIPs addressing specific components of continuing Stealth development, which, taken together, will result in an enormous increase in privacy afforded to the users of Stealth features on the BitShares platform."

He reviews the history of privacy features already in BitShares and distinguishes between Stealth, stealth, and STEALTH. He then proceeds to discuss complementary features.

  • Confidential Assets
  • Untraceability
  • Detecting Inbound Transactions
  • Deterministic Stealth Addresses
  • Metadata Hiding

Hope to see Christopher Sanborn join us soon to delve into each feature. Until then his post includes links to initial drafts of the BSIPs and to other related references.
