INTRODUCTION

The Dynamo roadmap contains several exciting developments over the next few months. These developments require careful planning and consideration on economic impacts and the future direction and price structure of the coin. …


Introduction

Dynamo is a unique cryptocurrency blockchain project which seeks to incorporate a number of unique technologies. Dynamo is first and foremost a proof of work blockchain secured by an ASIC proof algorithm.

Future development items for Dynamo include native NFT support, a native custom virtual machine, on chain voting…


Introduction

Due to the massive growth in popularity of Dynamo mining, it became necessary to implement a mining pool. Small solo miners were no longer to mine any substantive number of blocks which was leading to centralization and frustration among early adopters.

Mining pools allow many users to group their…


Introduction

I have previously written about methods to store NFT data on chain so that assets can be manipulated by smart contracts in novel ways which will allow for content creators to monetize their original creations.

My naïve implementation suggested storing asset data directly on the blockchain, mostly due to…


Introduction

NFT’s (non fungible tokens) have recently gained popularity as an alternative asset class, particularly among the art world. What seems to be currently lacking is a coherent NFT technology platform which allows for on-chain storage of artwork files and a consolidated, simple interface for market participants to meet and…


Background

There is a recent (circa May 2021) focus on energy consumption metrics of various proof of work crypto coins due to celebrity tweets, pure misinformation, state actors with hidden agendas, and many people with purely good intentions for the environment. Many claims circulate with “this coin uses more energy…


Recently I completed development of the reference GPU miner for Dynamo. This was a ground up development for a custom script based hash algorithm. I didn’t have any code to fork from or even review; this was starting from zero. …


Introduction

This article will detail the mechanism used to create and execute smart contacts in Dynamo. Dynamo is a unique cryptocurrency implementation based on BTC fork, using a hybrid UTXO/account design. The primary design goals were ease of implementation, minimal security impact and ease of use. …


Introduction

In this article I will will detail the implementation of the Dynamo programmable proof of work system and its novel consensus based update mechanism.

Progpow is not new and many projects have somewhat successfully used it to deter, but not eliminate, ASIC mining. One notable exception is Monero, however…


Introduction

I am currently working on a crypto ecosystem called Dynamo which features a blockchain fullnode that supports hybrid POS/POW security and a consensus directed foundation. As part of the technical design, I needed to add multiple outputs to the coinbase transaction. In standard Bitcoin, there is only one coinbase…
