The Bytecoin Team has been working on making hardware wallets a storage option for the Bytecoin community for quite some time. We admire the technology and would like to use this space to provide a preview of how Bytecoin can work with one of the most prevalent hardware wallets in the industry, the Ledger Nano S. First we will describe how Ledger devices manage keys, then how to install the Bytecoin app on a Ledger Nano S, and finally show how to use the device to send BCN.
The Bytecoin Team is proud to announce that the blockchain has hit block 1792117, and the hardfork process has been successfully completed. From this point on, the blockchain will be accepting version 4 blocks, bringing the long-anticipated technical additions to life.
The Bytecoin Team is pleased to announce that the blockchain upgrade height has been set.
We at Bytecoin value accessible education and shared knowledge - we have learned a lot of things that have given us a professional edge from open source. In the spirit of sharing we have decided to test out a new format of articles - short, clear and straight to the point descriptions of how things work. We hope these articles prove useful to some people and inspire them to learn more. Let us know what you think via Twitter or Reddit.
This article is the second installment of a two-part series on the Bytecoin blog. We have already established what software testing is and what testing methodologies are used by different teams around the world to identify and eliminate errors and problems from their products.
In this article we will describe the concept of testing levels as well as explore miscellaneous testing techniques.
As has been described previously, software testing is a key component of the software development process. Broadly speaking, it is an investigation that provides information about the quality of the software product. Software testing is part of quality assurance, a discipline that aims to purge errors and eliminate problems from the developed software.
It is estimated that there are around 23 million software developers in the world and this number is projected to grow to around 27 million in 2023. While software development remains one of the most dynamically advancing industries, the significance of a proper development paradigm has only gotten more substantial.
Just like with any Proof-of-Work cryptocurrency, mining is the foundation of Bytecoin. It serves to discourage illegitimate overwriting of the blockchain by apportioning mined blocks with proof of a certain amount of computational work. While debates over the pros and cons of Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake persist, mining is still a working solution to a modern technological challenge. In this article we will enumerate the different ways Bytecoin can be mined and take a look at the technological backdrop of each method.
In the recent year the Bytecoin devs have been striving to make Bytecoin software not only more technologically advanced, but also more convenient to use. This has flourished into the bytecoin.money web wallet, the mobile app, new partners joining the Bytecoin ecosystem and the Bytecoin Gateway concept. Hardware wallets are next on the roadmap.
