This Week In TurtleCoin (July 2)
This week we learned how to talk trash one pixel at a time, started building dapps, got drunk and forgot to write the Roundup, and more!

TurtleCoin OneClickMiner —“I’m back online and the OneClickMiner for TurtleCoin is still alive! The code finally reached a point where I was able to commit it to the repo. New features include support for xmrig, dynamic or manual pool selection with several options and cleaner code under the surface. Before filing the new release (which will bundle the most recent miners) I need some testers for the current code to find and correct the last bugs. (Look for the correct folder structure!) Check out the GitHub repo and don’t hesitate to ping me on discord! See you!” — EncryptedUnicorn#7915
zedwallet — “Added a few improvements to zedwallet this week — quite a lot was changed so I’ll list the interesting ones.
- Address Book — An address book has been added — this lets you save an address and an optional payment ID to a friendly name, to send to later. This is handy for sending to often used addresses, such as your tipjar.
Trending Cryptocurrency Hub Articles:
- Slight UI Revamp — You can now enter commands either by their name, or by their ‘number’, listed next to the command name. Furthermore, commands have been split into two types, basic ones, which are displayed when you type ‘help’, and advanced ones, which are displayed when you type ‘advanced’. This helps us add lots of cool commands without making it overwhelming to new users who just want to view their balance and transfer, etc.
- A change_password command was added — If for some reason you want to change your password, you can now do it without having to reimport your wallet from the beginning.
- Readline support —( Mac + Linux only) Thanks to @mrrovot for adding this — This allows zedwallet to behave more like a typical Linux command line application. It allows tab completion of commands, using up/down arrow to select previous commands entered, along with some other nice features. Unfortunately, GNU Readline is pretty tricky to get working on Windows, so this is only for the unix users :(
- Timeout on status command — You might have noticed a new
statuscommand in zedwallet recently. This is pretty handy, but occasionally, TurtleCoind would hang whilst responding, so the command would never complete. A timeout was added to prevent this from locking up your wallet. Thanks to all the contributors who have helped out with PR’s and feedback :) Like the sound of some of these improvements? You can build from source to start using them now! :)” — Zpalm
XMRig Stats Aggregator
XMRig Stats Aggregator — “Simple python REST server written with Flask that scans the local network for workers running XMRig (hope to include xmr-stak as well in the future) on a given port. The server can then be queried (GET) to return statistics on all workers found, and a rescan can be triggered via POST. This hopefully could be used as an easy-to-use backend to create a dashboard/UI to monitor all your workers within your network.” — auto-joe
Gladiator Bot — “Gladiator Bot allows users of Turtlecoin’s Discord to engage in player vs player battles. Start with 100hp and beat the life out of your opponent! Recently, potions were introduced in and shortly after buffed. Potions are a purchasable item, offered to heal you during battle. The cost of the potions helps to sustain the bots tipjar and allow battle prizes to be awarded. The most recent addition is the chance of a potion critically healing. Currently, potions heal for 30hp. However, there is a 5% chance that your potion will be critical and heal you for a staggering 100hp! The prize is now tied directly to Turtacus’s tipjar — meaning for every prize, you will be awarded 0.01% of his total overall balance. The more he holds, the more you win! The tournament will be taking a change this week. With the reduced match prize, the weekly prize needed to be more appealing. So as of next week, the overall prize will be 20,000 TRTL. 1st place will take 50% (10,000), 2nd place will take 35% (6,500) and 3rd place will take 15% (3,500). Turtacus now has a website which shows not only the top 10 leaderboard but also a full stats board showing every player. This is located at http://gladiator-bot.infinityws.co.uk and will improve over time as I get better with CSS. I am working on implementing stats — Strength, Agility and Defense which will alter how combat turns out. However, this is causing me many headaches and is taking longer to implement than I’d hoped. However, it WILL happen! Good luck in the colosseum — It’s every Turtle for themselves now!” — Rynem
Nest wallet — “A new version of Nest wallet will be released in a few days with backup and import from a 25 words seed. That version will also include fusion transactions, which should solve the issues that some users have for sending large transactions. The first version of Nest was released only 3 months ago, and Nest has already been downloaded 9300 times. Help us reach the 10K downloads!” — Jon — Nest
Swanson Rig —“_Swanson is running on hiveOS and is pulling an average hash rate of 10.46 kH/s on turtle.imhard4.men. I managed to get about ~2.24 kH/s extra with overclocking the cards by editing the ROM files and flashing them (very easy with hiveOS, would recommend anyone checking them out!). However this significantly increased power consumption (60%), thus I will most likely be running the overclocked settings only at night when it’s much cooler :)”_ — Fexra

Spreading Turtlecoin awareness
Spreading Turtlecoin awareness! — “Special thanks to Browns1964Champs for supplying the marketplace with TurtleCoin stickers. The stickers are very nice quality and perfect bumper stickers or for spreading around the community. No better way to spread awareness while supporting your favorite cryptocurrency!” — Xaz
TRTL Pixels — “It’s live, we can now draw things pixel by pixel with our precious TRTL! (Rock please write something better here for me ❤)” — Canti
This is the aftermath of just part of an automated picture upload on the chain. That’s almost 4000 tx’s in the pool waiting to go in the next block!
“TRTL Pixels is pretty cool! If you have a bitchin’ bald spot and a fond memory of Million Dollar Homepage, then you probably already know where I’m going with this! You can spend 1 TRTL per pixel to fill in any kind of picture you want, anonymously, one pixel at a time! Orrr… if your beard is strong you might automate it!” — Rock “Just look into it” Steady
TurtleCoin Snail Races
TurtleCoin Snail Races — “Today, 6/30, we have added to our snail pool approximately 30 tadpoles and 30 minnows as well as some azolla and pond scum. This will help to create a good environment for the snails to live. We are blessed to have the #snails channel on trtl network where updates and discussion about these upcoming races may be held. As of right now we hope to be up and racing by the end of July! Keep on being awesome :)” — Roger Robers
