This Week In TurtleCoin (June 3, 2018)
To celebrate block 500k the RainBorg was very generous. We recived tips every couple of minutes. Turtles danced in the rain. Congrats to the Turtlecoin community for 500 thousand blocks of fun.
We passed 500,000 blocks this week, and learned that pinging 11,000 chat users is the quickest way to get to 10,000 chat users!
Gladiator Bot —“Gladiator Bot is now in full swing! He has a fully functional leveling system where turtles can fight to the death and earn experience to level up! At present, levels provide you with bragging rights. As time goes on, that will change. More importantly, wins and losses are now being tracked and can be displayed per user by typing *level in the colosseum! Gladiator Bot now also has his own wallet set up which in the coming days will be incorporated into his code to allow fight prizes to be won! The leaderboard code is coming together nicely and this could also spell the beginning of weekly tournaments! For my first JS project, there have obviously been hiccups and times when the bot has crashed but I thank you all for being patient with me as I fix these bugs and thank you still for pointing these bugs out to me! As always, I’m happy to receive suggestions for the bot and am taking them all on board.” — Rynem
Xamder is making great tutorials about TurtleCoin in Spanish! Thanks Xamder!
Xamder’s Tutorials about Turtlecoin, in Spanish — “Make Turtlecoin known through social networks, using attractive and quality audio-visual materials, and thus arrive little by little at possible Turtles.”
walletd-ha & turtlecoind-ha — “I’ve been a VERY busy bee this week. turtlecoind-ha received massive updates this week including websockets via socket.io, New project walletd-ha designed in the same manner as turtlecoind-ha with high-availability in mind including a full API wrapper and websocket goodness via socket.io. Events that make development of applications around walletd VERY easy.”— iburnmycd
Our website now has internationalization options!

Jon’s Nest GUI, the default GUI wallet of TurtleCoin — soon implementing 25-word seeds.
Nest —“ Nest is the most used GUI wallet for TurtleCoin. With more than 100 downloads per day, Nest’s (and TurtleCoin) user base is growing fast. I am happy to announce that backup and import from 25-word seed is coming soon to Nest, together with performance improvements. Big thank to our great community member Genesis for this week’s GIF of Nest.” — Jon, creator of Nest Wallet
Canti’s lib-turtle-extra— “This week I started on a little utility library for encoding data onto the block chain, as well as providing a few other useful utilities for the aspiring future TurtleCoin dev, making it easier to send transactions and otherwise interact with the network via C#.” — Canti
Canti’s Web Wallet —“Thanks to bandit, the bounty for naming my web wallet is up to a whopping 600,000 TRTL — feel free to hop into the beta test discord to help test and suggest names or any features you would like added!” — Canti
