    Rewarder-Service SmartHoldem
    Development of Rewarder-Service has been completed.
    Rewarder is available on GitHub SmartHoldem


    Rewarder-Service advantages:

    Voting without participation of third persons!

    The automated and protected algorithm. Account passwords are not required for its operation.

    Rewarder-Service allows well timed and convenient opting for one or another delegate and it gives a chance to get in Top 64 for new delegates.

    The system will pay the remuneration to voters automatically. The payments interest can be any: 10-20-30-40-50-60-70-80-90-100%.

    The remunerations are recalculated automatically every 30 minutes. There is no need now for delegate to calculate the remuneration manually.

    On having chosen the following parameters, the delegate can suggest new opportunities for voters:

    Frequency of payments

    Payments interest from the sum of forging for any period

    The minimum value of a vote (to be specified by delegate)

    Personal page of a delegate. Every delegate who installed Rewarder-Service can activate this page. The page is deactivated by default.

    Follow the instructions on GitHub SmartHoldem for installation of Rewarder-Service.

    Delegates of Smartholdem:
    The delegates can be compared with system of democratic elections. The participants of the community vote for Nodes they want to see in TOP 64.

    SmartHoldem nodes in TOP 64 are responsible for checking of transactions, creation of new blocks and support of SmartHoldem network. Holders of the coins obtain the remuneration proportional to the value of its own vote in exchange for their services.

    Owners of SmartHoldem coins lease their coins, in fact, by voting for delegates. The delegates with the most number of votes or STH balance rank among TOP 64.

    The holder can change its vote at any time. The user can revoke its vote and vote for another more worthy node if Node failed.

    Any user can become a SmartHoldem delegate and earn remuneration, support SmartHoldem network. For this it is required to install Node according to technical requirements and bring it to the TOP.

    TOP 64 is attainable in several ways:
    Buy the required quantity of SmartHoldem coins on the XBTS and BitShares exchanges or bring in STH holders who will vote for your node. Usually, people do not vote free of charge that is why think over what payment interest you can offer to get holders interested.

    This is the way the remuneration system works for opting for one or another delegate. Such system is also effective if Node is short of means on the balance to rank among TOP 64. Node can suggest the decent payment interest to voters who are able to raise Node to the TOP by the power of their votes and earn together.

    STH holders:
    If you have some STH coins on balance in purse, you are considered to be a holder; you can earn additional STH coins using your vote value by voting from SmartHoldem purse for a delegate who is interested in attaining or maintaining the position in TOP 64. The sum of remuneration depends on % deductions fixed by the delegate for Node operation.

A separate group of repositories is created [SmartEvents] ( is aimed at the development of SmartEvents protocols, contracts and a new event-based approach to interaction with blockchain platforms, here:

    ** Foreword **

    Many people know when you interact with servers to get data that you usually use the approach when you periodically access the server to get the requested data, for example, through cron 1 time per minute you check the availability of new transactions in your wallet, or for example a simple chat when you need to contact to the server database every second with a request for data on new messages, this approach is obviously ineffective.

    According to the research of many campaigns, 99% of the server resources are wasted due to "idle" calls to databases on the network, which leads to additional costs of building up server hardware (RAM, CPU etc ..)

    ** Our Vision **

    100% efficiency of resource use versus 1%, reduction of server costs. This problem is solved by the development of an event-based approach consisting of listeners and service providers.

    A member of the SmartHoldem network can become both listeners and service providers and receive additional remuneration paid by consumers for this. Service consumers are applications and campaigns that use trusted community-provided services.

    Alternatively, service consumers can raise their listeners and service providers on their own servers. Do not use trusted remote services.

    How ​​it works

    Example 1 - you need to receive information about incoming transactions to thousands of addresses

    Listeners listen to network events in the blockchain locally / remotely, creating more opportunities for network users and decentralizing the service. The API allows consumers to create subscriptions and receive blockchain events in real time using Webhook callbacks.

    Services handle events and fulfill any specified conditions and contracts. Create and execute service contracts, which can be anything from downloading a file to transferring values, creating smart contracts, executing code on bockchain-based computing platforms, or interacting with Iot.

    The customer of services (for example, the exchange with thousands of SmartHoldem addresses) subscribes to events on the network, in our example this is the transaction receipt to N1000 + addresses with the condition of 5+ confirmations.

    When the event occurs, the Services perform the necessary logic, for example, send a POST notification to the database / Callback URL about the receipt of a new confirmed transaction and add the STH balance to the user's account.

    *! It excludes any extra load on the server and 100% efficiency with minimal resource consumption. *

    Event-based technology is also used in contract deterministic events.

    The example is maximally simplified in understanding the basic principles of interaction of nodes.

    As security, you can use the white list, trusted sites, and the unique API Key, which is received by the consumer of services based on the STH-Address. Those. all requests on the network occur with authorization. Requests without authorization are rejected by the services and listeners of the network.

    To receive the Api Key, the consumer replenishes his STH address with the necessary amount of service from 0 to N coins. If the consumer is also a provider of own services, he can set 0.

    If the consumer uses trusted service providers, the service will be provided until the entire balance of the signed address with the API Key in favor of the service provider is wasted. The recommended initial amount for service providers is 100 units.

    Services and contracts are unlimited in their modifications. Primary services and events can be as follows:

    a new block was created - perform the operation a transaction was received at address A with the number of confirmations N a transaction was received at address A with the number of confirmations N and the sum> S Bet on the game event E Game event + service contract initiated Block N received direct exchange of BTC> STH through the network + contract

    Updates to Node-A

    ** The secret key is in a separate file ** ** secret.json ** (for compatibility, the old version with the file ** config.smartholdem.json ** also works). If you save * the * secret passphrase of the delegate address in secret.json, you do not need to re-specify it during updates.

    ** Added fast sync blocking with script **


    testing was conducted on a known weak VPS server with the parameters 2x2.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 20GB HDD. The time for full synchronization of the SmartHoldem block system from scratch takes no more than 2 minutes.

    Updated some libraries associated with better security and stability.

    ** For the guaranteed upgrade of Node-A ** to the latest version, use the following commands:

    ***!Attention! Most likely the secret phrase from the file config.smartholdem.json >> secret ["your phrase"] will be deleted, do not forget to write it down. ***

    cd smartholdem-node-a forever stop app.js

    here will be asked to overwrite some files, write ** y <ENTER> **

    git checkout -p git pull

    The result is about the following:

    Updating modules

    npm install

    If you have not updated for a long time, the secret phrase will be deleted, you need to specify it again, it is recommended to specify in the file secret.json

    nano secret.json


    { "secret": ["here is your secret phrase"] }

    CTRL + o, CTRL + x


    When all operations are complete, you will see the log of the work of your updated node.

    Network segments and the SmartHoldem platform development 2019

    SmartHoldem is a decentralized platform focused on friendly interaction with blockchain projects. But it’s not a random choice of method. The cryptocurrency market needs a convenient bridge that natively connects users with applications, games and services.

    As we said in WhitePaper
    ! Guided by the interests of investors and players, the SmartHoldem team reserves the right to use even more advanced technologies in the event of their development. The mission of the SmartHoldem team is perfect technological solutions, usability and flawless code.

    SmartHoldem - is a unique Blockchain, as it is the first blockchain that is technically compatible with various platforms. Building-block system opens up new opportunities for the widest circle of developers in the implementation of their ideas and becomes a full-fledged gaming platform.
    We support the development of a database repository made by the developers of Lisk Postgres and Level DB

    The priority direction is full integration with the well-known delegative platforms such as Lisk, Bitshares, Waves and others. Thus, SmartHoldem acquires additional properties.

    The team continues to work hard to create games, new modules and support existing ones, investing all available resources in the development of the platform.
    Although the Sidechain technology was invented long ago and we do not consider it the only candidate, sidechains are one of the well-known tools of interaction in the ecosystem.

    A fund has been set up for new developers who will enter the SmartHoldem ecosystem.

    Network-A intentionally uses the delegative model, providing technical compatibility with other known systems and technologies for high-speed transaction processing at the present time, in the case of the emergence of better technologies, they will also be involved in the platform.

    The second segment of the SmartHoldem Node network of level B is integrated, which interacts both with its own data structure providing additional functionality and the first segment of the Node network of level A (necessary for processing the maximum number of transactions for the minimum time in a standardized format in the future).

    When Level B Nodes are a peer to peer Internet based on stored/running web applications with a search engine, instant messenger, internal assets and their exchange, atomic swaps, friendly contracts, DAPPs tied to unique names that can later be sold by their developers at the internal auction of the decentralized second segment of the Node B network, encrypted transmission of messages, reward authors of the unique content of the social/gaming p2p network of SmartHoldem, very-large-scale data, transparently operating on hybrid p2p protocols, will be transmitted/stored in the third noncommissioned segment.

    Currently, a stable foundation of technical innovations has been prepared.
    Level-A network is ready for use as a stock coin and in gaming/business applications.

    The primary demonstration of playability is scheduled with the release of the heads or tails game between the network participants.

    Several stable interaction modules between the blockchain and developers using other programming languages are expected.

    It is time for new internet!
