Permacoin Implementation
« on: February 25, 2016, 07:41:45 pm »

Well, that was done under different umbrella that Consensus Research, but following previous work  :)

 Permacoin is non-interactive Proof-of-Retrievability scheme for blockchain consensus protocol proposed by A. Miller et al: http://cs.umd.edu/~amiller/permacoin.pdf . Scorex devs have implemented Permacoin as Scorex module. Notes on implementation details: https://github.com/ScorexProject/Scorex-Lagonaki/wiki/Permacoin-Implementation .

Testnet is ready to be public. So we'll announce it soon to test things in the wild. Nothing is planned for production.

Scorex is now under IOHK Research wing (https://iohk.io/).

Now I'm finishing a new paper with a working title "A Scalable Blockchain System Based on a Non-Interactive Proofs of State History Retrievability", basically a Permacoin repurposed for storing blockchain system state snapshots to provide fast bootstrapping for new nodes and safe blockchain pruning.

Is Permacoin somehow related to the proposed NXT 2.0 design?

I guess now. I'm out of 2.0 discussions atm, will try to get read the debates and give my 2 cents though.
