Project introduction

Komodo is a Z Cash fork centered on issuing privacy and decentralized digital assets. Komodo's multi-chain design allows projects to build their own block-chain ecosystem through Komodo's scalable infrastructure. Commodore block chains also support cross-chain interoperability, which allows them to connect to external chains via atomic swap. By adding a chain, a block-chain cluster can be formed to improve performance. Commodores also secure the hashing power of the bit coin network through a series of cross-chain verification that stores the block hash in the bit coin block chain every 10 minutes.

34 Students at UTA Develop ...

34 Students at UTA Develop dApps With Komodo’s Technology — KomodoSeptember marked the end of the second “Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Technologies” course at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). The course, taught by Dr. Sajib Datta, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Strategic Advisor for Komodo Platform, attracted 34 students over two semesters.In the fall of 2018, Komodo announced an educational collaboration with the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) . As part of the official relationship , first established by Dr. Sajib Datta from UTA and Komodo CSO Steve Lee, Komodo provided support for a course dedicated to blockchain technology, as well as funding for two senior design projects and scholarships for two undergraduate students and two graduate students for one academic year.Now, one year later, Komodo is pleased to report that the year-long collaboration was a huge success. In the spring and summer semesters, Dr. Datta taught a course titled “Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies Technology,” which focused on blockchain technology, in general, with a particular concentration on Komodo Platform. Blockchain was a new concept for most students, resulting in a challenging but very rewarding learning experience.Read rest of the article at https://komodoplatform.comThe article was originally published on November 4, 2019.34 Students at UTA Develop dApps With Komodo’s Technology — Komodo was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

First AtomicDEX Stress Test...

First AtomicDEX Stress Test Successfully Completed — KomodoKomodo held a community stress test of AtomicDEX Beta on 31 October from 12pm to 6pm GMT. The test provided the Komodo Development Team with an enormous amount of valuable data about potential bottlenecks in the networking layer, and will help the Komodo team perfect AtomicDEX in the upcoming months.The main objective was to battle-test Market Maker 2 , Komodo’s next-generation order-matching technology, based on Libtorrent. It is a significant upgrade from the previous solution Komodo used in 2017 and 2018.Up to 2000 simultaneous traders tried to perform atomic swaps at the same time, while the infrastructure was scaled down to identify breaking points under high load. During the 6 hour test over 150 traders had completed an atomic swap.The Komodo team would like to thank all participants for their commitment and support during the first AtomicDEX stress-test.Order Matching LayerA crucial part of building a decentralized exchange is how to match buyers and sellers and broadcast orders. This layer is just as important as the atomic swap protocol itself and has to be just as decentralized. With the Libtorrent protocol, we have been able to create fully decentralized P2P order books where traders match with each other and begin an atomic swap .Read rest of the article at https://komodoplatform.comThe article was originally published on November 2, 2019.First AtomicDEX Stress Test Successfully Completed — Komodo was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Decentralized Exchanges: Th...

Nearly everyone in the blockchain space agrees that decentralized exchanges are the future of cryptocurrency trading. That’s because, in today’s industry, trading digital assets is neither secure nor simple.To start trading, you must first buy assets with a fiat currency (USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, etc.) through fiat gateway services, which often charge high fees and offer terrible exchange rates. Only a few major digital currencies are available. Once you’ve made the purchase, you no longer have control of your own funds- the exchange does.This system forces centralized exchanges to be responsible for holding and protecting all users’ funds. As a result, exchanges must manage a few centralized wallets that control huge amounts of wealth.The solution is decentralization. If all trades are fully peer-to-peer, as on a decentralized exchange, then intermediaries will no longer need to hold and manage users’ funds. It makes the industry far more secure. It also promotes adoption by greatly simplifying the trading process.While many projects are working on various DEX protocols, few of them have developed a DEX that meets all 4 core requirements of a truly decentralized exchange .This article will examine and compare the protocols of the top decentralized exchanges: 0x, IDEX, Waves, Loopring, Kyber Network, Decred, Nash Exchange, and AtomicDEX. After a thorough analysis, we will be in a position to evaluate the relative merits of each DEX and discover which one has the most to offer its users.Centralized ExchangesBefore we get to decentralized exchanges, let’s understand the traditional digital asset exchange. An ordinary digital asset exchange is a web application that runs on centralized servers. It is typically not open source. It must manage users’ login data, such as their email addresses and passwords, as well as their KYC documents (if the exchange requires them). We can refer to exchanges of this variety as centralized exchanges (CEX).To make trades on a CEX, users must deposit funds upfront. It’s clear why this is a requirement, as users should not be allowed to make trades with funds they do not have.However, the deposit process can take up to an hour or more, as most exchanges require a high number of block confirmations before the funds are considered safely deposited. This model also forces users to forfeit control of their funds when making a deposit to a CEX.Centralized exchanges use a credit system, sometimes called an IOU system. This means that when a trader deposits funds, her account gets credited accordingly and then she can create buy and sell orders.Read rest of the article at https://komodoplatform.comThe article was originally published on October 29, 2019.Decentralized Exchanges: The Top 8 DEXs Compared was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Market Maker 2: The Engine ...

Komodo is the undisputed industry leader in atomic swap technology. With the beta release of AtomicDEX , Komodo continues to lead the blockchain space in decentralized trading solutions. AtomicDEX is the only product that lives up to the 4 core requirements of a truly decentralized exchange .This blog post will explain in great detail Market Maker 2, the underlying protocol that powers secure, peer-to-peer atomic swaps on AtomicDEX.Lessons Learned From Previous DEX ProtocolsKomodo’s atomic swap technology has evolved over the years. While Komodo has long led the industry in atomic swaps, BarterDEX, the previous generation of Komodo’s DEX technology, had a few major issues that prevented the application from being mass-adoption ready.First, traders were required to have a UTXO of the precise value they wished to swap on BarterDEX. If a user wanted to trade, say, 1000 KMD for BTC, then they would need a UTXO of exactly 1000 KMD to make the swap, even if they had more than 1000 KMD in their wallet. In this case, the user would need to manually split the UTXOs in her wallet in order to have one UTXO that was precisely the amount of the fee and a second UTXO that was precisely the amount of the trade.Second, one party of an atomic swap- the trader who initially posted the trade offer- was required to commit funds to a deposit address. The deposit had to be 112% of the total amount the trader wanted to swap. Although neither party in the trade nor the Komodo team could access the funds in the deposit address, it still gave the appearance of an escrow account or custodial trading.Third, traders had to use a proxy token called ETOMIC when trading from Ether or an ERC-20 token to Bitcoin or any BTC-protocol altcoin. The trading process was still secure and peer-to-peer, but BarterDEX employed a small workaround to bridge the gap between the Bitcoin and Ethereum protocols. It was not as seamless a process as Komodo hoped to achieve.Finally, there were connectivity issues with MarketMaker, the decentralized order matching technology upon which BarterDEX relied. As BarterDEX only worked with open ports, meaning it did not have NAT (network address translation) traversal capabilities and could not pass through firewalls. Practically speaking, an atomic swap would only work if the person posting the initial trade offer was on an internet server. BarterDEX would have connectivity problems for anyone trading from a home Wi-Fi router.Now, with Market Maker 2, all three of these limitations have been resolved. The first step to perfecting an atomic swap protocol was to overcome the challenges presented by the unreliability of the Internet itself.The Internet Isn’t As Stable As You ThinkDespite the fact that humans have come to rely on the Internet more and more, the Internet is not always reliable. We might wish it to be, and we might believe it to be, conveniently forgetting all the times when it wouldn’t work for us, explaining away as reasonable the failures on a case-by-case basis. But when it comes to our clients, this illusion of reliability backfires, as people are faster to blame the application they’re using than some invisible routing issue.Read rest of the article at https://komodoplatform.comThe article was originally published on October 8, 2019.Market Maker 2: The Engine That Powers The AtomicDEX Protocol was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

How To Make A Blockchain Wi...

There are many different reasons why you may want to learn how to make a blockchain- you may be building a fintech application, creating a supply chain management solution, making tokenized digital assets, exploring blockchain gaming, or leveraging blockchain for secure records management. Whatever your target use case is, you’ll need to learn how to make a blockchain before developing the perfect solution.Broadly speaking, there are 4 ways to adopt blockchain technology: you can code a new blockchain protocol from scratch, fork an existing blockchain’s source code, submit code to a single-chain smart contract platform, or you can make a blockchain on a multi-chain platform.Of course, all of these methods come with their relative merits and drawbacks, but the last option stands out as the superior choice. Launching a sovereign, application-specific blockchain combines the independence of creating a new protocol or forking an existing chain’s source code with the security and programmability of building on a single-chain smart contract platform.Enter the Antara Composer, a web application that lets you customize and launch a Smart Chain in just minutes. It also lets you add all the extra features and white label products you need to go-to-market quickly.Komodo is an , Komodo’s third-generation AWS Advanced Technology Partner so can add full seed nodes and mining nodes through AWS cloud services. You can choose to protect your Smart Chain with the power of the Bitcoin hash rate with delayed Proof of Work security . Lastly, you can choose to have your coin listed on AtomicDEX decentralized exchange application.While the Antara Composer is still in a beta phase, it’s fully functional and can help you launch your production-ready Smart Chain today. This article will explain how to make a blockchain with Komodo’s Antara Composer.How To Make A BlockchainBefore designing your Smart Chain, you’ll need to create an account and sign in to the Antara Composer . This will only take a minute and will help keep your Smart Chain project secure. After that, it’s time to begin making your Smart Chain. Check out this video tutorial to watch how to make a blockchain with Komodo’s Antara Composer in real time.In case you need a little bit more information, this post will break down the blockchain building process, step-by-step, and provide additional details that aren’t covered in the video tutorial.

The 4 Core Requirements of ...

The 4 Core Requirements of a True DEX — KomodoFor years, increasing decentralization has been one of the main objectives of the blockchain industry. While this is a worthy, albeit rather abstract, goal, the word “decentralization” now seems more like a marketing buzzword than it does a design principle or guiding ideology.This is most evident when it comes to digital asset exchanges. Recognizing the challenges of centralization, like custodial trading and massive security vulnerabilities, many exchanges, both old and new, have taken to calling themselves decentralized exchanges (DEX) without ever explaining the properties of a true DEX or how they rise up to meet the standard.While many of these so-called DEXs are, indeed, less centralized than traditional custodial exchanges, they still bear the mark of centralization. Just because an exchange is slightly less centralized than a fully centralized exchange doesn’t mean we should call it a DEX.In this blog post, we will establish the core requirements that must be satisfied in order for an exchange to qualify as a DEX. Then we’ll explain how AtomicDEX, Komodo’s third-generation atomic swap powered DEX, is the only exchange in the industry that satisfies all conditions.Defining DecentralizedThe debate over the word “decentralized,” and what exactly it means, is not a new one. In this excellent essay by Tony Sheng from September 2018, a few different definitions of “decentralized” are put forth:“‘Decentralized’ is defined as the opposite of ‘centralized.’ ‘Decentralized’ is an ‘antonymic definition’- defined only as the opposite of something else.”“Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance describes decentralization as a property that emerges from the roles, behaviors, and influence of actors on each layer-protocol, network, and data of a distributed ledger.”“Vitalik takes a crack in early 2017: ‘Blockchains are politically decentralized (no one controls them) and architecturally decentralized (no infrastructural central point of failure) but they are logically centralized (there is one commonly agreed state and the system behaves like a single computer)’.”“As Sarah Jamie Lewis says in her thread on decentralization … decentralization is the degree to which an entity within the system can resist coercion and still function as part of the system.”Ultimately, Sheng suggests that defining “decentralized” and measuring decentralization is neither possible nor particularly relevant because:“‘ Decentralized’ is a platonic ideal that trust and power are distributed in a superlatively fair way. It’s not something that can be reached, but a useful thing to reach towards. “While Sheng is right that nailing down a precise and universally accepted definition of “decentralized” is not a realistic goal, it is useful nonetheless to put forth some basic criteria- conditions that are necessary but perhaps not always sufficient- in order for a project, app, software, or system to be considered “decentralized.”Read rest of the article at komodoplatform.comThe article was originally published on September 13, 2019.The 4 Core Requirements of a True DEX — Komodo was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Adaptive Proof of Work (APo...

Blockchains do not have inherent security. While major blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum are incredibly secure, it’s common knowledge that smaller blockchains don’t have anywhere close to the same level of protection. If a blockchain’s network is small and weak, so are that blockchain’s defenses against malicious attacks.Proof of Stake blockchains face threats like the Nothing at Stake problem and Weak Subjectivity . Proof of Work blockchains, on the other hand, have to worry about the infamous 51% attack , as well as more obscure attacks like the Diff Strand Attack.A Diff Strand Attack is when malicious miners raise a small network’s hash rate and mining difficulty to extremely high levels very suddenly. Then, the malicious miners quickly abandon the network, leaving it stranded with such a high difficulty that the remaining miners are totally incapable of processing transactions or finding new blocks.To defend against 51% attacks, Komodo uses the delayed Proof of Work (dPoW) security mechanism, which recycles the Bitcoin network’s hash rate to give every dPoW-integrated coin the same level of security as Bitcoin itself.As for the threat of difficulty stranding attacks, Komodo now has a solution for this, too. Komodo’s Lead Developer James ‘jl777’ Lee recently added slight changes to traditional Proof of Work rules to allow a network to quickly and naturally recover from a Diff Strand Attack. This new consensus method is called Adaptive Proof of Work (APoW).Understanding Proof of Work and MiningThe first step in understanding Adaptive Proof of Work (APoW) is to gain an understanding of how ordinary Proof of Work networks function.Stated very simply, Proof of Work forces all of the machines on the blockchain’s network- that is, the miners- to compete against one another. Each miner is trying to solve a complex math problem before anyone else.Read rest of the article at komodoplatform.comThe article was originally published on August 16, 2019.Adaptive Proof of Work (APoW): Komodo’s Solution To Diff Strand Attacks was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

nSPV: Komodo’s Next Generat...

nSPV: Komodo’s Next Generation EditSimply Payment Verification (SPV) TechCryptocurrencies are powered by blockchain technology which, just like any other software, boils down to data. When you send or receive coins or tokens, small amounts of data are being created that only your private key can access.Over time, as blockchain technology becomes more popular and more people start using cryptocurrency, the amount of data in the blockchain grows. At some point, this leads to a bottleneck.Traditionally, Simple Payment Verification (SPV), which was outlined in Section 8 of Satoshi Nakamoto’s original Bitcoin white paper, has been the solution to this inevitable data bottleneck. However, SPV itself is a limited solution, as it, too, will eventually reach a point where it requires an excessive amount of data. Current implementations of SPV are also resource intensive, prohibiting integration to small devices and preventing compatibility with the internet of things.Komodo’s Lead Developer James ‘jl777’ Lee recently developed a new superlight client technology called nSPV. It is hundreds of times more efficient than traditional SPV methods. This new nSPV technology is more secure than ordinary SPV and so efficient that even tiny electronic devices can run blockchain clients, opening up the door for mass adoption of blockchain technology through the internet of things.Downloading An Entire Blockchain: “Full Seed Nodes”When Bitcoin was first created in early 2009, anyone who wanted to receive or send BTC had to download the entire blockchain to their computer. This meant that each user’s computer had to download the entire ledger, including every address, transaction, and block in the whole chain.Read rest of the article at komodoplatform.comThe article was originally published on August 13, 2019.nSPV: Komodo’s Next Generation Simply Payment Verification (SPV) Tech was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Quantum Leap: Komodo’s answer to quantum resistant ledger technology & MuSig for a party of 1000 transaction signersGiven I’m not a maths expert, I can only imagine the types of problems that will keep secure communications possible through the 21st century. Something like, “calculating when light will exit a crystal if the sun shines on it at 7 in the morning — after it’s reflected through a raindrop.”Example “shortest vector problem” (SVP) lattice problem from wikipediaThis kind of problem, requires the sun to rise and for a raindrop to be in the right place at the right time. There is no computer in the 20th century nor the 21st century able to calculate this. It can only be observed once it happens — and this is how post-quantum cryptography in an online money system will keep things secure. These types of maths problems fall under hard lattice problems. They are unimaginably hard to solve.Maybe shortest vector problems aren’t for you? Try a CVP — closest vector problem. Maybe you would prefer to find where on the concrete slab for measurement the light beam will shine 52 nano seconds after it’s exited the crystal (after rebounding around a raindrop).Komodo lead developer jl777 has integrated the dilithium signature scheme into Komodo. It is one of the primitives used in these types of algebraic equations. It is a quantum resistant signature scheme. The sun shining through a raindrop and into a crystal then coming out the other end — dilithium signs like the sun shining through these lattice like structures — if not seen before hand, impossible to calculate and break.Cryptography is the study and practice of secure communications and has been around since the days of Caesar. Famously, the father of modern computing, Alan Turing cracked the Nazi cryptography with the Enigma machine. This paved the way for a secure communications arms race between nations, ultimately culminating with the internet. The internet has provided enormous economic growth with the US Department of Commerce housing the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).NIST, interestingly, is looking for ways to maintain secure computing beyond the age of quantum computing. Quantum computing is based on quantum mechanics and to be brief, this can be summarized as true = false, 1 = 0, on = off. At the same time. Something can exist and not exist in the quantum field.In light of this, quantum computing will likely break much of 20th century cryptography. Luckily for us, there are hard maths problems that create equally hard algorithms that not even quantum computing will be able to break.Here is the first transaction using dilithium signatures with the existing technology on the MuSig chain for developers.MuSig — from bitcoin and integrated into KomodoDuring the past week, before the quantum resistant ledger tech was integrated into Komodo, jl777 created a Crypto Condition module for MuSig technology.MuSig, according to the bitcoin developers at Blockstream, provides a “simple” method for key aggregation within the public key infrastructure. What this means is security and privacy is increased for a multi-signature transaction. The transaction can be verified by someone without knowing all the signature’s public keys — and it works on existing software infrastructure (e.g. wallets and explorers).MuSig also provides for larger multi-signature transactions. “Larger” being a higher number of signatories. In standard multi-sig transactions, the limit in Komodo is 15 signers. With MuSig, this has been increased to 1000 in a test on the MuSIG chain. It did require a lot of memory. I tried a transaction with 5500 signatures, but my 64GB system became unresponsive. Looks like we’ll have to try something between 1000 and 5500 to see how optimized we can get it.The original (more techy) story was from week 9 Tech Tuesday update.Komodo: Quantum resistant transactions & MuSig for larger more private multi signature transactions was originally published in Komodo Platform on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Here’s a great article posted by smk762 talking about cryptoconditions and one use case involving GPS and a dog! Full article here: http://rant.cryptocartography.io/anatomy-of-an-oracle/“I’ve been busy working on the Dragonhound dApp (for asset tracking) in the KMD Labs, a community Skunkworks project. Dragonhound offers a cartographic interface using LeafletJS to display the GPS location data history of a Particle.io Asset Tracker, which is stored in a tactical pouch attached to a OneTigris K-9 Harness, and worn by a wandering hound with a lust for freedom who I’ve bailed out of lock up more than once.Tying all this together is a Komodo assetchain (currently in testnet) which uses an Oracle Crypto-conditions smart contract to store GPS data emitted from the Particle.io device, and retrieve it for display with python RPC functions via the Django framework. As this is new tech, simple to understand documentation is in short supply. Below I’ll walk through the steps for creating an oracle from Ubuntu 18.04 command line, and then storing and receiving data on it.”.Anatomy of an OracleFunds In Z-Addresses Must Be Moved By Feb. 15, 2019On October 27, 2018, zCash implemented the Sapling upgrade to its code base. Since zCash is an open-source project, Komodo was able to activate the Sapling upgrade, as well. As a result of this upgrade, from the Sprout to Sapling code for private Z-transaction support, the old Sprout Z-addresses will be deactivated in the Komodo code base on February 15, 2019. Read more about the update here: https://komodoplatform.com/komodos-sapling-upgrade-success/ .Only approx 0.1% of addresses are Z addresses. Most users do not need to do anything.If your funds are on Ledger or on Agama Lite (i.e. you use a seed password and not a wallet.dat) then you don’t have a Z address.Even if you have upgraded to the latest version of Agama and your KMD is in a Sapling Z-address, you must still move these funds to a transparent t-address by February 15, 2019.If you have any questions you can join the support channel in Discord here.For instructions on how to safely move your KMD from a Z-address to a transparent R-address (the address should begin with the letter “R”), please see this guide created by Komodo’s Support Team: https://support.komodoplatform.com/support/solutions/articles/29000026955-perform-z-transactions-using-agama.Latest Nano S application is now available on Ledger Live.Ledger suspended its Komodo service on December 14th, 2018 in order to evaluate the feasibility of technical upgrades for the Komodo hard fork on December 15th.

This article points to Komodo’s delayed Proof of Work as a solution. Read more here: https://decryptmedia.com/4408/cryptocurrencies-protect-51-attacks.Next time you see an article or post about a 51% attack, here’s what to do!Coinbase recently blogged about ‘Deep Chain Reorganization Detected on Ethereum Classic (ETC)’ as a result of a 51% attack. In the same newscycle, Bitstamp tweeted “Hacking Bitcoin with a 51% attack would require spending around $5.5M per day on electricity (if the cost of electricity is $0.05 per kWh). This is just the energy cost, the necessary equipment would cost billions.” which is exactly the point of delayed Proof of Work notarizing to Bitcoin because it makes it impractical to attack!
