What we're doing

MCL Library Integration

Led by aguycalled

The MCL library greatly improves the speed of which xNAV transactions are created and verified. An increase in speed of 200% is expected once the library is implemented.

Support xNAV in NavCash

Led by aguycalled

Using navcoin-js, NavCash will add support for xNAV and thus enable its users to make private transactions on Navcoin's network, even from a mobile device.

Social Mining Platform

Led by aguycalled

A social mining platform is in the works to allow Navcoin to reward people carrying out actions of value to the network. E.g. by sharing Navcoin's message on social media, or by creating promotional content for the project.

Burn Transaction Fees

Led by aguycalled

A proposition to burn transaction fees and remove them from the circulating supply, as opposed to what happens in the current protocol, where fees from a transaction included in a block are added to the staking reward.

Improvements to xNAV

Led by aguycalled

A proposition to optimize the cryptographic verification protocol of the transaction candidates used in the xNAV mixing protocol resulting in a greatly reduced network load along with significant improvements to the performance of the nodes.

dotNAV

Led by aguycalled

A proposition to introduce dotNAV, an on-chain naming service where one can buy a name with the .nav suffix, and then associate it to their NAV or xNAV address, or perhaps an internet resource that they own. On-chain trustless trades of names will be possible via Atomic Swaps and BLS signatures.

What's next?

SQLite Wallet Database

One-Way Aggregatable Signatures and BLS Signatures allow to combine multiple signatures into a single aggregated signature, improving on scalability and privacy.

Private Transactions

Led by 0x2830

blsCT is a new privacy protocol that is currently being worked on. Combining the advantages of BLS signatures with Confidential Transactions (CT), blsCT is confidential, untraceable, unlinkable, and improves scalability.

Increase Community Fund

Led by proletesseract

Modifying the community fund contribution from 0.25 NAV to 0.5 NAV to retain the 80:20 ratio when static block rewards are activated.

Community Fund Accumulation

Led by aguycalled

Navcoin's network voted to reduce the staking reward to 4% and include 0.25 NAV per block for the Community Fund. This consensus change was activated on the 3rd of July 2018 and the Community Fund has been steadily accumulating since.

Community Fund

Led by aguycalled

Navcoin’s Community Fund enables anyone to get paid by the network for their contributions to the Navcoin ecosystem. Projects are funded and approved by the decentralized network with no central authority.

NTP Synchronisation

Led by aguycalled

Navcoin Core now makes it mandatory to clock sync against an NTP server on launch. This was introduced to prevent stakers creating blocks with incorrect timestamps which was causing block spacing issues for the network.

Segregated Witness

Led by proletesseract

After rebasing to Bitcoin 0.13, Navcoin's network voted on implementing SegWit transactions. The vote succeeded and SegWit was activated on 25 December 2017 and SegWit transactions can now take place on the network.

Blockchain Restart

Led by Soopy452000

Navcoin's blockchain was reset in May 2016 as part of a rebase to an updated blockchain format. This is why although Navcoin has been around since 2014, the genisis block of our current blockchain was mined in 2016.
