Read on for the full version of RChain's community debrief 91(August 22nd) including latest developments, release announcements and news about the upcoming RCon3.
These RHOC will be sold at a discount from the spot price* as part of validator agreements. The discount is to attract early validators to the network. Typically, networks create new tokens as a reward for validating or mining transactions.
Pi-Calc is a model of concurrent computation, or more specifically, a process calculus based upon a notion of naming. In a process calculus, we represent interactions between independent agents or processes as message-passing, as opposed to modifications of shared variables (as in λ-calculus).
There's been a continued increase in attendance at the Tuesday node testing session, with thoughts on getting the sessions recorded and published. The technical team is moving forward finalizing Node 0.6 for release, focusing on stability, robustness and performance of the system.
The RChain Cooperative values individual empowerment and community-driven development as vital for the project’s goals to enhance coordination on a global scale. RChain Asia is a prime example of these principles catching on across the Pacific.
This article covers some of the basics of computational calculi, like the syntax and semantics of λ-calculus, π-calculus, and the model RChain is built on, ρ-calculus.
In our 2nd spotlight episode, we showcase Translo, a dApp startup providing a solution for decentralized data sharing in clinical trials using RChain’s revolutionary blockchain platform.
If you've actually tried to code in Rholang, you may have noticed the reference material is sparse. That doesn’t mean it’s difficult, and you don’t have to wait to begin learning how to program for this new blockchain.
