  • Last week, the PoC Consortium released the BRS 2.2.5 version of the core wallet, which helped successfuly mitigating a spam attack. PoCC developer rico666 reveals: “the latest spam attack which was mitigated by the 50-50 pool forging fat blocks and the release of BRS 2.2.5 stipulated development of BRS 2.2.6 which is to be released in December and specifically addresses inter-wallet communication.” In the meantime, everyone please update to 2.2.5 to keep the network as strong as possible.
    • Reddit user u/harryy1453 even made it easier for you to upgrade by introducing a “handy little repo that contains packages for the Burstcoin Wallet for Debian and its derivatives.”
    • You can probably expect a more detailed writeup explaining what happened with last week’s spam attack soon.
    • The Poloniex Burst wallet was momentarily disabled but everything is now back to normal.

  • PoC Consortium developer JohnnyFFM hinted at a new release of the reference plotting software Engraver. And it’s fast… Very fast! See this Reddit thread for some never-seen-before nonce generation speed. Beta is already available for testers.
  • Do you remember the PoCCBot we talked about last week? Well, work is still ongoing. What is now a “simple” tip bot might become much more than that in the (near?) future.
  • Friendly reminder: the November announcement is coming next week.




If you had to remember only one thing from this week’s report, what would it be? Yes – update your wallets! And don’t get discouraged by the bear market: “Development was never stronger – and I mean that in absolute numbers (man-hours).” – rico666. Indeed, a lot is going on behind the scenes on many different projects. Next week should be quite interesting for sure.

Thank you and see you next week.
