Brave and DuckDuckGo Partner to Improve Privacy on the Web
Brave and DuckDuckGo announced an extension of their partnership Thursday to radically improve Internet privacy. Standard browsing and search compromises user data. To combat this, Brave has integrated DuckDuckGo search within the Brave browser’s private tabs, providing users with a simple way to enhance privacy protection when searching on the web.

Did you know?
BasicAttentionToken You can "pin" a favorite site and decide which % it gets, regardless of how much time you spend on that site.
Is BAT a Scam? Luke responds on Twitter:
Luke Mulks: Not a scam. We work hard to make it easy for users to support creators by activating the platform. 100% opt-in. Anonymous payments with privacy protection as a core company value.
May be worth looking into PayPal's early days. They gave free money to users to onboard. It worked
The creator of JavaScript is our CEO and co-founder. Our team is 100% legit & from the top of their respective fields. We actually really care about what we're doing here. Aim to prove monetization can exist without consumer surveillance and profiling.
More BAT grants coming soon!
Brave Software: We will have more BAT grants soon, thanks for using Brave!
Luke [email protected] Worth noting that 3rd party "promises" to comply with DNT are slippery at best. 3P often disregard or workaround. Lacks enforcement w/any teeth. 3P actively lobbying against privacy protection. Brave blocks 3rd party tracking, allows for DNT as well, w/o false sense of security
Will BAT and Twitch work together? Brendan replies:
BrendanEich @Brave + @attentiontoken today enable "Patreon in the browser", pinned anonymous contributions as a percentage of your monthly budget, no censorship, fixed low fee on 30-day aggregate single txn. We <3 small donors. We'll work on standardizing over time.
BrendanEich We granted to users the first chunk (300,000) of $BAT recently, will do it again. Thanks to @upholdinc, creators get paid in fiat in regions they cover. Users fund via crypto at present; working on cc/debitcard methods. Domain/YouTube verification is blind proof-checking process.
How many people use Brave on Android?
Luke Mulks: Well over 1.5M, on Android alone. :-)
  1. We are engineering a new model, privacy first, quality over quantity.
  2. Ads separate from page content, dedicated progressive UX.
  3. Users remain anonymous, receive rev share for ads viewed.
What are the differences between ad-tech browsers and browsers owned by ad companies?
BrendanEich: Note big diffs vs ad-tech & browsers owned by ad companies: 1/ we put users first in revenue and control of data, by opt-in and revshare & settings; 2/ we pay 70% to ad slot owner, way better than today's prorgrammatic adtech.
BrendanEich: Last thing: with Uphold (we'll find more such partners but they are outstanding), user will be able to take their 70% rev-share to fiat in many regions. This requires Uphold's bank-level AML/KYC, to avoid fraud at scale. It relieves users from having to go to crypto exchanges. + 1:21 PM - Dec 13, 2017

Introduction and Test of Lightning Network Function Based on Qtum

Introduction and Test of Lightning Network Function Based on Qtum
The scalability of block chain is the key to realize massive transaction. The Current Bitcoin network can achieve a maximum of 7 processing power per second, the Qtum network can now achieve Bitcoin 10 with the processing power,But forMassive transactions are not enough (e-commerce applications, for example, in recent years Alibaba dual 11 shopping festival, Alipay network Peak transactions over 100000 transactions per second (TPS), Visa on the 2013 holiday period, the implementation of 47000 transactions per second (TPS)).In order to solveThe processing and storage problems brought about by this massive transaction, Joseph Poon presents a lightning network (lightning Network) solution, Lightning Networkis a centralized system, no need to trust each other and a third party can achieve real-time, massive network of transactions. The basic idea is that the trading parties in the chain through the trading script to create payment channels, after the two sides real-time, massive payment transactions in the chain completed, through the link to a number of channels can achieve any two points between the fund transactions, the completion of value transfer, without the trust of the third party for funds and settlement These transfers can be carried out along the routing path between untrusted parties through a contract.
C-lightning is a reference implementation of the Lightning network on the Bitcoin block chain, and can now support the payment channel creation, receiving and payment functions of the Lightning network. Qtum on the basis of c-lightning made a corresponding modification to form a qtum-lightning, so that under qtum can also achieve such as channel creation, real-time transactions, small transactions and other functions. The following tests are performed on these lightning network functions through the Qtum backbone Network (mainnet).
1. Test environment
Two sets of Ubuntu 16.04 of computers, installed with Qtum core and qtum-lightning. Qtum-core is used to connect the qtum backbone network, qtum-lightning the node to achieve the Lightning network function.
2. Lightning Network Test
This test, through a node and B-node to establish a payment channel to achieve real-time, small payment function, the main process includes: Capital preparation, connection establishment, channel establishment, payment transactions. The test realized the funds to deposit 0.1QTUM to the channel and paid 0.00000001 qtum from Node B to Node A.
2.1 Get information for two nodes First get information about the node for subsequent operations:
Node A:
{ "id" : "0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0", "port" : 9735, "network" : "Qtum", "version" : "a787b86", "blockheight" : 28906 }
Node B:
{ "id" : "03977a1862418d6989453f8f1fc793120830463b1beda1e951e39e947ec09f2208", "port" : 9735, "network" : "qtum", "version" : "a787b86", "blockheight" : 28927 }
2.2 Create a payment channel
The channel of Lightning Network is to realize the start of the chain trading, after the channel is established, it can realize the transaction under the chain, no need to broadcast to the chain. The creation process is to store the money that is used to establish the channel in the wallet address that is managed by the node, and to join the pool of funds, after which you can create a lightning network channel using a portion of the fund pool amount.
Prepare a sum of money:
First send the funds to node B node with address: cli/lightning-cli newaddr # to get a new address return: MUNPTmB7U8phjeibPDooKzVfsa2CQGPuME qtum-cli sendtoaddress MUNPTmB7U8phjeibPDooKzVfsa2CQGPuME 0.3 # deposit 0.3 QTUM funds
Get transaction records:
Qtum-cli getrawtransaction 6c73d136bacd91d59025fe5da1645864beaad69a8a6436d70b7dbfe02bbfecdd
Returns: 0200000001181bd1846baf6264b970086f3da5aa8d35c7604fcc601904d7c64cdc5417048a010000006b483045022100cdd4461077c76c90c879e97 414c6ae 8d1612209f145 12cc 9a18859 EF 229a67c902204 14cf 6149b8766 e80daf 5879948095850c84755c6 A 47c8f2d91 E 1e13250f117401210359a8 6e828760164102000000001976a9140 de97fc 8e6c79f362f324f6 b8adbeeedddf103bf88acef700000832d8b5d3118b7017b48a38b17237e4d1939e5cc7804eafceae6221f7a4efeffffff0280c3c9010000000017a914e088ca565bde2b4c6698d78a2ec647a53b02
Add to fund pool:
cli / lightning-cli addfunds 0200000001181bd1846baf6264b970086f3da5aa8d35c7604fcc601904d7c64cdc5417048a010000006b483045022100cdd4461077c76c90c879e97414c6ae8d1612209f14512cc9a18859ef229a67c90220414cf6149b8766e80daf5879948095850c84755c6a47c8f2d91e1e13250f117401210359a8832d8b5d3118b7017b48a38b17237e4d1939e5cc7804eafceae6221f7a4efeffffff0280c3c9010000000017a914e088ca565bde2b4c6698d78a2ec647a53b026e828760164102000000001976a9140de97fc8e6c79f362f324f6b8adbeeedddf103bf88acef700000
{ "outputs" : 1, "satoshis" : 30000000 }
Create Lightning Network Channel
First connect to node A through node B:
Cli/lightning-cli connect 9735 "0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0"
{ "id" : "0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0" }
Node B deposits 0.1QTUM funds into the channel:
Cli/lightning-cli fundchannel "0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0" The actual value of 10000000 funds needs to be divided by 100000000 is based on QTUM pricing.
2.3 Making payments in the lightning network channel The payment process in the lightning network channel is initiated by the receiving side. The receiving party A first generates a receipt of its own receipt, and then the sending party B can obtain a value from B to the amount of the paid payment. A's payment routing, according to the routing information, can send itself to the A node.
Produce QTUM receipt document at node A: cli/lightning-cli invoice 1 a # Receive 0.00000001 QTUM Return:
{ "rhash" : "3b8d42fb10dd451f42babcc962c17c12b9163dd2b03a1f12f968789bb80c1cf2" }
At the Node B, the route to the A node to send funds is:
Cli/lightning-cli getroute 0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0 1 1 Back:
"route" :
{ "id" : "0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0", "channel" : "28926:2:0", "msatoshi" : 1, "delay" : 36 }
Send an amount of 0.00000001 QTUM to node A from node B:
Cli/lightning-cli sendpay '[ { "id" : "0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0", "channel" : "28926:2:0", "msatoshi" : 1, "delay" : 36 } ]' 3b8d42fb10dd451f42babcc962c17c12b9163dd2b03a1f12f968789bb80c1cF2
3 Check the result after payment
In the lightning network channel, payments can be settled immediately. After node B sends a sendpay to A, the new allocation result of the channel's funds is generated in real time. You can check the distribution of channel funds by viewing the information of nodes A and B.
A node
Cli/lightning-cli getpeers
{ "peers" :
{ "unique_id" : 9, "state" : "CHANNELD_AWAITING_LOCKIN", "netaddr" : "::ffff:", "peerid" : "03977a1862418d6989453f8f1fc793120830463b1beda1e951e39e947ec09f2208" , "connected" : true , "owner" : " Lightning_channe ld" , "msatoshi_to_us" : 1 , "msatoshi_total" : 10000000000 } ] }
It can be seen that the A node received 0.00000001 QTUM, the total amount of the channel is unchanged, there is no formalities.
Node B
Cli/lightning-cli getpeers
"peers" :
{ "unique_id" : 10, "state" : "CHANNELD_NORMAL", "netaddr" : "", "peerid" : "0298b904689755a051441f1a8828e5d3aa46633cac21bc6bd8ce75328508e71ec0", "connected" : true, "owner" : "lightning_channeld", " chanNel" : "28926:2:0" , "msatoshi_to_us" : 9999999999 , "msatoshi_total" : 10000000000 } ] }
After Node B stores 0.1QTUM and sends 0.00000001QTUM before sending it, it still has 0.09999999QTUM remaining. At the same time, the total amount of the channel seen does not change.
Through the above tests, it can be seen that the Qtum-based lightning network can basically realize real-time transactions and settlements under the chain. Only transactions involving two parties can be used without paying commissions, making it possible to make payments such as small payments. Theoretically, by setting up a large number of lightning network channels under the Qtum chain and placing transactions under the chain, real-time, massive transactions can be realized.
