RocksDB and SMTs Announcement

작년

Dear Steemians,

We have estimated and prepared the detailed versions of our short- and long-term roadmap for RocksDB and SMTs with their target completion dates. To make everything come in shorter bursts and as the community has requested, we’ve broken out SMTs into SMT-lite, which is paired down to include the core functions of issuance and transfer of tokens. Additional roadmapped SMTs features are also listed.

Below is the spreadsheet outlining the different tasks for RocksDB and SMT-lite, as well as their ETA, points and status.

For RocksDB, our plan is to write an adapter that uses the BMIC (Boost Multi-Index Container) interface and replaces the behavior with a RocksDB backend. This will allow steemd to support both the existing BMIC/Chainbase implementation and RocksDB as a compile option without needing to change the consensus logic of steemd. Additionally, by creating the adapter to use the same interface as BMIC, we can leverage the existing BMIC unit tests to ensure that we replicate the expected behavior of BMIC, but backed by RocksDB. This will result in a 95%+ memory consumption reduction by moving our storage from memory to disk. Ultimately our target is to have Economic nodes (Full Nodes by a Bitcoin standard) running on commodity hardware with 4GB of RAM and a standard SSD.

The scaled-down SMTs scope includes these features: claiming names, tokens, issuance of tokens to one account, transfers between accounts, immutability (meaning that once a token is launched none of its original parameters can be altered) and a testnet.

Next iterations of SMTs will add back in these original functions:

Again, I will discuss these topics and your questions tomorrow during a livestream at 11am CST. See my post from Monday regarding submitting questions.

Best regards,
Ned

@atlantica, I think it just shows that he wants everyone to see it, as lately he's been accused of doing nothing.

Anyway glad to see SMTs haven't been completely shelved, and RocksDB sounds important. Ready for the next big rise I hope :-)

oh and the "point" of making the "light" version without the steem core is same reason SpaceX n's first rocket engine looked like this

simple design, and then over time it ended up like this

So as you can see the complexity went up over time, here you can really see the progression

And obviously, Blockchains and Rocket Science have plenty in common, lots of complexity and moving parts. In fact it makes a lot of sense to put all the pieces of a rocket engine on a blockchain, i bet EOS will be used to run all of spacex in the future.

Will robots in space be using paper money or gold bars in space? Hell no theyll use crypto currency.

SMTs should atrtract people in education as students schools and teams in schools can apply for SMTs and have tokens to trade, with parents investing like they do when they go pay for students fundraisers

Imagine kids going door to door but instead of selling girlscout cookies or doing a school fundraiser, they sell ICOs for their schools new Smart Media Token .

Being able to create these SMT lite tokens is going to be really fun for creating placeholder tokens, which every project and their momma is gonna use, and just imagine little nkids getting into this ide athat they can sell LOCKED tokens to their family members, where the tokens can be LOCKED over TIME hah so even if their toikenbs go way up, the adults who paid for this thing wont be even abl=e to sell for a year or two, the kids will time lock the adults in and just pump their own school coins so high... youll be neding so much steem just to buy one of these SMTs... i cant wait foir this to happen...

It has a chance if kids around teh world start using steem for its ease of use and freedom, its free and allows kids to have a global bank account basically... its amazing what a chikd can do on steem, they can become hustlers and have access to a system that lets the transfer millions of dollars instantly for free around the world... allowing them to pay people and even pay other children...and this is key...

so many kids in the past had been blocked by various organizations like paypal from getting to operate because they arent 13 or 18 or whatever arbitrary age... but with steem we see the ability for very young people to even build software projects and fully functioning businesses and sell them to other users for tens of thousands of steem, all through the steem blockchain.... and soon theyll even be able to cash out without any ID... I know netcoins is pretty cool but ya know, u kmay still need an ID but bro i just heard about Coinstar adding crypto... a few other services like Paxos or whatever has steem, man, so cool, feels good with that infrastructure growth, the market is stupid and by netx time market should actualy spill over when the bulls come in, the money should stay and power up and bve used for stuff liek steem monsters and much more.... k im trailing off now...

Soon we will have SMT type 1 SMT type 2 SMT type 3 etc

man....why don't you get along with Dan again and you guys could merge EOS with Steem......otherwise he creates steem 2.0 and we all get fucked up......doesn't matter who is the boss, better to be number 2 with Dan in charge and become a billionaire than be the number 1 and go bankrupt......no room for small coins....EOS and Steem must merge......he already proved he was right when he created a new coin from scratch and it got much higher market capital than steem....sell the control of Steemit Inc to Dan......you assure yourself finantially and assure the success of Steem. Telling this not to put you down in any way but to genuinely help you.....All the best

·

You got a 89.48% upvote from @brupvoter courtesy of @christianchannel!

·

I agree with you my friend!!

·

Sorry who is this Dan everyone is talking about? And what platform is he creating?

·
·

He was the architect of steem, he created steem.

·
·

Dan Larimer. He is now (or maybe he's already left it, too?) behind the project EOS. Steemit pretty much fell apart after he left last year. Though, as many of us hopefully know, correlation isn't nec. causation... but in this case, there seems to be a strong relationship nonetheless.., imo.

Ned, your wallet activity communicates that you are aiming to power down 100%. Since 1.5 Mil STEEM has already been uloaded into the market; a big question mark stands.

In my 40 years of capital markets and companies; the ONLY reason a CEO gets rid of his WHOLE stock of holdings is due to the following potentials:

  1. You are LEAVING or Giving Up out of disgust (unlikely).

  2. You have received another offer elsewhere that's too good to decline.

  3. The board is about to fire you (unlikely) since the board is you, yourself and you.

So, what's going on? There are many reasons a CEO sells and only one reason a CEO buys.

I'm smelling something having to do with #2....that you have somewhere else to go....perhaps not of your choice but necessity. Where are you going?

What have you done with Steemit Inc.? My sixth sense tells me that you're up to a self preservation driven activity.

I'm aiming at #2.....what are you scheming? What's going on that makes you unload your wallet? Did you sell Steemit Inc.? Is it going bankrupt?

I shall meditate on this to discern.

  ·  작년

hey Retard, do you think ned kept all of his steem in his ONE single @ned account? he has @steem @steemit @alpha and a lot more with tens of millions of steempower i think he has like 90 million so shut the fuck up! Youre so dumb spreading misinfo and getting upvotes for it

·

You are awake... Grtz... don't be fooled by all these gospel singers and mantra repeaters. Use your eagle eye.

·

Transferring crypto to an exchange is not the same thing as selling. I myself have quite a bit of Steem on an echange that I use for regular trading. It might not be the most secure thing, since the exchange could be hacked, but it allows me to profit quite a bit from trading.

He could have done quite a number of things, including diversifying his crypto holdings to weather to bear market. The question is, if he has sold Steem, will he buy back any? Will he possibly increase his holdings?

In any case, it's not really our business what someone does with their personal holdings of Steem. Despite people's grumblings about people powering down, it is fully their own business what they do with their own finances.

·
·

Fuck there are a lot of moaners on this post. Also a fuck tonne who still can't get it past their thick skulls that STEEM doesn't live or die by steemit. In any case, fair play @geekpowered for a little common sense and for not defaulting to FUD bitching. There is enough of that in the mainstream media.

I'd agree, in all logic if Ned is in a position where a falling STEEM value is putting financial pressure on then powering down and putting it into oh i dunno say a stable coin makes sense. If prices go back up well then whoop de do, he may lose some personal wealth, but then steemit starts to support itself once more. If the STEEM value continues to drop at least he has a pool of reserves to keep the core team going.

Could be another negative reality going on. But really people, FFS how narrow are your crypto holdings that this actually concerns you. If STEEM goes to zero and it impacts on more than 10% of your bottom line investments then well need I say more.

·

I'm also powering down 100% now, and that's not because I'm leaving Steem, it's just because it seems to be the only way to gain a bit of liquidity on the Steem power.

By powering down 100%, once a week I get some freedom of choice, I can choose to revert the power down by powering up, I can choose to sell some steem, I can choose to buy SBD on the internal market and convert it to steem if that seems profitable, and I can choose to channel funds over to other investments.

Upvoted for the commitment to getting a simple token delivered; thank you. The greater concern here is probably the period of time proposed for the RocksDB work, since technical people seem to doubt it can be done that quickly. So I wonder at the actual price difference between what you are doing and what Blocktrades proposed to handle. But again, we need tokens and thank you for that commitment.

·

Commitment? The only thing delivered is a little beer mat with some writings on it.

30 days, what are the deliverables? Are you serious? We should be happy in 30 days he finished his powerdown, how many mind-fucks can you undergo?

"Ultimately our target is to have Economic nodes (Full Nodes by a Bitcoin standard) running on commodity hardware with 4GB of RAM and a standard SSD."
This is fantastic news and will benefit the Steem ecosystem enormously.
If Crypto prices had stayed high this would never have been a priority.
This is a perfect example of how going through tough times creates a much stronger & better result than being on easy street.
Well done and good luck in getting these initiatives completeted.

"Ultimately our target is to have Economic nodes (Full Nodes by a Bitcoin standard) running on commodity hardware with 4GB of RAM and a standard SSD"

You just got trolled, or better, scammed... how does that feel... fantastic news, or ? fake news?

·

This is absurd... that doesn't help the "ecosystem"...

It's far closer to repainting a house that's partially collapsed from termite damage and calling it a repair.

·

yes, agree more

Thanks for the update. If you make it possible to run a full node on a 4gb server I promise to throw in some ;)

·

This right here is why optimizing steem's core technology is so important

·
·

Server? Servers are in centralized datacenters. Shouldn't the end goal be the actual end users running nodes on their android phones? And on their gaming PC's. Bitcoin isn't mined only in datacenters. Steem nodes shouldn't witness blocks in only those locations either. That is a recipe for disaster.

·
·
·

Well I totally agree. The thing why I did say server is because I got a internet connection that is unreliable at the best and simply disfunctional at the worst of times.
If I would have something decent I would throw in additional pcs at my home.

·
·
·

A gaming PC can be a server and indeed a good one for blockchain applications with excellent single core speed. Servers don’t have to be I data centers. Once upon a time every business had them in their office.

Oh shit thats 2 yrs old already ! xD

Thanks for the update!

It would be great if you and the dev team would consider adding native support for NFTs based on the SIP001 spec here, right after the work on basic tokens is complete:

https://github.com/thesweatshop/tokenforge/blob/master/SIP/SIP001.md

Edit: please see my reply to smooth deeper in this thread for short overview

·

Hi @upheaver - I just wanted to say thank you for contributing to STEEM ecosystem, I think it's very impressive that you just voluntarily devote probably tons of your time to open this platform to new possibilities. !tip 100 hide

Thank you, highly appreciated

  ·  작년

NFTs are accomplished in SMTs by issuing SMT-lite of 1(one) token and 0(zero) divisibility. What are the differences in the approaches? Thanks.

·
·

My proposal allows for storing of custom json metadata inside each individual token by 3 different parties: the token issuer, the current owner and the dapp interacting with the token.

The specification document contains a walk-through example

·
·
·
  ·  작년

Thanks. I'm fairly sure we'll achieve the goals (e.g. Support Steem Monsters Card Issuance) supported by those reqs with SMT-lite. If I'm incorrect, let us know where.

·
·
·
·

Using SMTs for NFT functionality would be a hack - while it might cover the very basics, the native enhancements I proposed would provide new capabilities and in turn enable new kinds of businesses/ecosystems to emerge.

·
·
·
·
·
  ·  작년

What is functionally different besides the name? If there are missing features, particularly small ones like json fields, now is the time to hash that out with the developers and get them incorporated.

·
·
·
·
·
·

It's explained better when reading the spec, in short there are a few things:

  • native apis for nfts (querying, issuing, burning)
  • separate storage inside each token for issuer's, owner's and dapp's data - they can write only to their own section.
  • a new mechanism for users to send NFT tokens to third party dapps (similar to a smart contract)
  • for those apps to consume/process token interactions asynchronously using queueing

This enables powerful new ways to build apps.

For example you could send your steemmonster cards to a real time strategy game dapp built by a 3rd party, play with them,earn custom points, and then convert those points to native experience points by steemmonsters - all data logged nativelly inside the token

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
  ·  작년

Yes I understand your spec does things in a different way. Since you worked on your own to design something, and there are always different ways to get to the same goal line, it will clearly be different in terms of details such as the names of the APIs.

What I'm trying to drill down to are the core functional differences that can bridge the gap because I think there is near zero probability that the Steemit devs are going to implement your spec, but actually decent probability they might be convinced to make some small functional changes to enable the same or similar use cases.

For example, having data storage areas seems like something might be possible to go into even simple SMTs. If it goes in, many of the uses cases you have in mind will be enabled, if not using the same APIs that you specified, etc. If not then those use cases won't be able to use SMTs (or certainly not as easily)

·

Thank you for your explanation here. I didn't quite get the benefit when I read your post and glanced over the documentation.

Good job @ned . I really like it, how fast you react and how you start communicate with the community!

·

Ned I love the work you are doing and especially that you are listening to the community. That allows everyone to advance.

Ultimately our target is to have Economic nodes (Full Nodes by a Bitcoin standard) running on commodity hardware with 4GB of RAM and a standard SSD.

I am SO excited by this. Increased decentralisation!

Rise of the many nodes! Can't wait. Any word on CPU requirements / core count targets? I'm not about to run out and buy hardware today, but it would stop me from selling some other hardware I have lying around. :)

·

You can run the smoke blockchain on 4gb Ram.. :) Perhaps steemit inc takes note and removes the cancer that is SBD.

·

Smoke also has almost no content and state. A brand new blockchain can run on a Raspberry Pi.

When you hang around people all day that talk like this you start to think all this jargon is normal. There were so many acronyms in this post I thought you were speaking another language. You need like a glossary for your posts perhaps. haha

I have never been more excited about Steemit then I am right now. Thank you Ned for your decision making in the past few weeks.

Thank you for your continued best efforts @Ned!

First of all, this update made my day!

Second, I know very little about development so this question is from a layman's point of view. There are many of us here, so I hope my question will help my fellow novices to understand this process better.

I am thrilled that the two most essential elements are going to be addressed. Is there any way to work on them at the same time so they can both launch asap? Could one of the two elements be outsourced to experts in the community or industry so they can be completed more quickly?

Thanks for the update, @ned. Love the idea of SMTs-Lite.

But does the focus on rocksdb mean that the offer from blocktrades is off the table? I mean, currently time is of essence.

But anyway, I'm trusting in your and the team's judgement. Looking forward to the live stream.

·

As I also replied to Asher:

“To be honest, Blocktrades should develop it and release it as a public repo.

That’d decentralization.”

It’s time to decentralize rather than always needing answers of the same unit. It’s time to put the learn in the flearn. Otherwise the same risks happening over and over again. Rinse and repeat.

It’s a crap ton of work that if not approved is a huge loss.

Feel free to join me; thank me later.

Are you considering @blocktrades offer to take the RocksDB implementation? The above seems to point to a 'no, thank you'.

Cheers.

Seems that Ned wants his scaled-down company to do it all...since they continue to deliver in such a stellar manner.

·
·

Ah right, thanks for the link.

Well I hope this doesn't put other people off offering to to help, I thought this one might be a goer :/

·
·
·

that issue is at least a year old, and no one stops them to develop it and have a PR.
Like everybody else.

·
·
·
·

They'd like to get paid for that work.
Like everybody else.

Steemit burnt millions failing this far. Nobody is gonna do free work for them now, when compensation in turn is unlikely at this point. Developers of this caliber charge significant consulting rates. Ned had a bunch on staff, which is ordinarily cheaper than consultants. By a magnitudinal scale, but he fucked that all up, and nobody is going to do his homework for him now for free. He still has millions - he better hire somebody that can fix his fuckups, because most of the people who would have contributed for free, left last year or the year before, after witnessing the centralized incompetence.

·

To be honest, Blocktrades should develop it and release it at a public repo.

That’d decentralization.

·

Looks like Steemit Inc listened to my advice 🙃 I was one of the few telling them a no thanks to the expensive BT deal.

·
·

That advice came out of nowhere.
They should do it like everybody else, PR and have the consensus decide, what is best.
At least, they could still vote against SMTs, if they are not happy with the current solution, but they didn't do it in the past, so I doubt they will do it

·
·

Yes I saw you were not keen.

Only Steemit Inc can accurately assess the offer against doing it themselves - let's hope the right decision was made.

Turd Sanders accomplishments in life; trying to stop people from posting on Steemit. You should write a book about it. You're an absolute joke

Keep up the communication Ned. We’re mostly very supportive of the hard work putnin by you and your team.

@Ned have you also considered FPGA acceleration of the blockchain replay? It is heavily CPU single core bound and likely involved many steps that would benefit from FGPA acceleration. I have these $275 Acorn 215 FPGAs from Squirrels research based on Xinlix Artix 7 FPGA that I'm interested in seeing whether they can be used to accelerate Steem node replay times. The main tech guy there @gpuhoarder on Discord thinks its possible.

I don't suppose it matters if I ask for the third or fourth time for things to be explained in terms for regular users to understand instead of techno jargon alone, so... jazz hands?

My understanding is a leaner version of SMTs is under development and a new database system (rocksDB) is to be deployed which will hold a lot of stuff that had been floating around in RAM to be stored on disk. This should allow full witness like nodes to run on machines that will be much more affordable; which should help to further decentralize the network and make everything much cheaper to manage.

[NOTE: The above interpretation is open for debate and likely mis-interpreted in many areas. It is not meant as financial advice but Ned's post is making me feel very bullish. 😎]

Thank you for the clarification.

Thanks! 😊

I agree I don't understand any of this...
@ned can you please put this in terms us regular guys will understand?

In short I ned laid off 70% of staff so they would no longer delay progress and we have viable ideas as to how to solve sustainability for nodes and we are working on SMT-lite So tokens can start to be distributed 😅

Thanks. I saw the 70% thing but I didn't understand the whole SMT thing. Thanks for clearing that up for me @d00k13. As always I can count on you!

People, people, people... This is the lay of the land for the time being... We are all relatively young here... As is the space itself.. In other words: It's the Wild West. You want gold, you're gonna have to go diggin for it; and ain't nobody liekly to tell ya where it's hidin... Do your own research!! If you don't know a word, look it up!! All this "Wahhh I don't get IT!!" Imo, just means you aren't ready for whatever it is you're attempting to "get" to begin. Nothing here will be spoonfed... that's YEARS down the line, and much much more money behind/ into this before you can have the ease and comfort you apparently seek.

It's great to see these updates @ned.

Communication is really important both in the good and in the bad times. I wouls say that it's much more important in the bad times. Thank you for doing this.

Also, SMTs, Simple SMTs, SMT-lite, it doesn't matter as long as we get them. So this is great news!

Steem on!!!

Keep the updates coming and make the most of the other development team. We need a boost of confidence in Steem.

so @blocktrades and @gtg were onto the point!

·

Is the blocktrade proposal still relevant in this roadmap from ned?

Posted using Partiko Android

·

i think so or at least parts of it

To make everything come in shorter bursts and as the community has requested

Hey @ned , I am glad you are listening to the community.

Cheers

Wow only 4gb of ram and standard ssd’s is all that is needed! Awesome

Has "Pinned Post" always been a thing?

Only since a few minutes ago!

Pinned - I like it @ned - about time we get to see important information from Steemit Inc on Steemit.com from the CEO when he has something to say! Good Move!- I have missed this since... 2 Years and 9 Months ago. Can we get our own personal pin on our steemit.com blogs too? :) :)

Can we get our own personal pin on our steemit.com blogs too?

I would second that. Pinning posts would be awesome. It would be great to be able to pin introduction or important updates to the top of our pages.

To take that even further, I wish we had folders we could organise our content into and then pin posts to the top of each folder.

Just something to consider when funds permit.

Hi @ned

Good to see that the storm is almost over and we are about to move into a recovery phase. Great work on the development of new features and the updated SMT roadmap.

I'm writing this message in the spirit of the #justask movement.
I'm part of a group of independent researchers and writers united by our love and believe in cryptocurrency and the potential disruptive applications it has in different industries. Right now many of us lend our efforts to Oracle-D in its quest to draw investment to steemit.

I would like to request an SP delegation to better curate and encourage newcomers.
I invite you to read my blog for assessment and if you deem it fit, delegate to empower the vision. The delegation amount is at your discretion. You know what's best.

Look forward to your reply whether positive or negative. Cheers.

Pretty lame, man. When can we pin our own posts? Such haphazard attempts and reestablishing order here.

I like it, something like "Pin your own business!"

·

By the way, Minds.com allows for three pinned posts. Gab.com, Facebook, Twitter, & other websites, allow for just one pin, generally. Adding customization, options, brings us closer to the golden age of MySpace of 2007 which is when I was totally customizing my home page on MySpace with some code to allow redesigning the layout to turn your home MySpace page into like a website home page. I would love to be able to redesign a custom Steemit home page like it was Wix.com or Webs.com or some other kind of web builder like Busy.org but with even more options.

Good to know that we have a game plan in place! 💪🏼🙌🏼💯

I am just happy @ned is upfront about the situation and keeping things transparent

·

Yep. Same here. Communication is important.

Thanks, Ned!

Thank you very much for the update my dear friend

Well atleast the new leaner team looks meaner and we're seeing some progress, thanks ned! Also how does one go about getting their post pinned? I'd like to pin my post! You can't just show up with new features like that and not tell us!

·

Ehhh what progress do you see?

·

Also how does one go about getting their post pinned?

Probably running your own Condenser Node would do it. 😎

All the communication is appreciated.

This sounds exciting, some solid plans for a change.

lol... please let the guy be happy. :)

Shitty comments have been getin 10-15$ upvotes.

Good, Glad to see SMT's are moving forward. This is absolutely essential functionality for paths foward for a variety of applications on STEEM and should, upon release, help provide the economic framework for growth in value of STEEM.

Good chances are blowing up.
What are you doing?

I think the biggest obstacle to the development of the company is you. Am I a bad person?

·

Mostly just a smart person, who doesn't seem to be under the influence of the cult of nonpersonality.

Just a friendly reminder to anyone paying attention.

When the success of an organization promising rewards for investment that depends on future investment to cover the costs of earlier investors... that's not lowering costs, that's not expanding the platform, it's bordering on a ponzi scheme.

The solution needs to be in looking at revenue streams, not generating new or better cryptocurrencies... part of why SBD value has dropped so much harder than cryptos in general is because SBD is only good for SP or $, and essentially nothing else (of any real scale).

Just a friendly reminder to you paying no attention. It is a ponzi scheme!

Ultimately our target is to have Economic nodes (Full Nodes by a Bitcoin standard) running on commodity hardware with 4GB of RAM and a standard SSD.

Now that's fuckin' exciting. I get that there's been a lot of SMT hype and people are kind of obsessed with them, but if you can pull off the above that's a sea change in Steem usability for devs.

Indeed! I think that even if we had to split the chain across multiple servers, allowing this would be a great development. A 64GB server is still pretty premium. A 16GB server would be perfectly acceptable. To get all the way down to 4GB? That means that people can run it on hardware taking on dust balls in the closet. Such would mean that quite a few more people can run servers.
