Sorry - when I mentioned automation I was not talking about automating the merging/updating of our fork. That will always have to be manual - right now it falls on me, and I'm not sure what it will look like in the future but I'd imagine that the foundation will take custody of that task.

Right now we are basically running vanilla loom codebase
Very few adjustments, mostly additions / contracts on top

I was wondering if anyone had already reached out to the professionals running validator nodes from other PoS blockchains / or if we feel their interests into the Shipchain network will come naturally/organically hence not worth the effort / or any other points of you on the matter?
Leeward Bound
@leewardbound
we plan on reaching out soonish
we've talked to a few in private and plan on talking to more shortly

Hi everyone. I'm wondering how txs intensive would be the platform. Say I'm shipping one parcel from the east to the west coast in the US by track. How many transactions would be recorded on the blockchain. For sure minimum 2, at the start and the end. And current track and Trace systems would also record any interim steps (intermediary DCs). But I'm puzzled with the GPS tracking. This is meant to be real time right, which leads to an indefinite amount of txs on the blockchain? Can somebody clarify that please?
ShipChainEurope
@ShipChainEurope
Minimum would be 1 I guess. When the data is logged offline. And pushed onto the blockchain in 1 single transaction

@royaljelly2018
It depends on the destination but for example when you ship a product in USA to USA it might go from warehouse to an intermediary to your local post office and then finally your house
Shipping from China I’ve seen up to 20 records for one package before it reached my home in nl
Not as to say it will work the same way with shipping but many line items are typically recorded for a consumer item before it arrives at your home.
Leeward Bound
@leewardbound
You can configure on a per shipment basis how frequently (if at all) you want a shipments GPS to checkpoint/hashsum into the blockchain
So you are correct about the 2 at beginning and end (and any intermediate stops) but for the GPS, yeah it could be once a day, or it could be at 5 minute resolution
Adam Hodges
@ajhodges
Our vault hashing/notary system allows the user to control the granularity of notarization of vaults, based on their requirements of immutability and cost/performance. This is also a mechanism that will allow us to scale beyond even the limits of a sidechain. It's configurable by customer, but our defaults are to notarize hashes of tracking updates every ~2 hours (because they are so frequent and otherwise would cause a flood of transactions) or ~5 minutes for other shipment data updates. So transaction count is currently highly dependent on the length (in time) of the shipment. I guess to (not answer) your question, it could be tens, hundreds, or thousands per-shipment.

Hi! Im looking for some help to clarify Validators glossary/terms/concetps. Is this the place to ask for help?
Leeward Bound
@leewardbound
Hey, beyond docs.shipchain.io, Loom docs are probably a great resource (because we are still a direct fork of them, with no current source modification)
We are working on a glossary/wiki for the greater ecosystem but don't hold your breath, it'll be ready when it's ready 😘
If you wouldn't mind tho, PM me anything specific you are trying to define, so I can make sure I get it in the wiki

⚙️ The Shipchain Network ⚙️

📦 The Shipchain network is a soft fork of Loom, a dPoS blockchain: https://bit.ly/34jXZ6X

📦 This fork runs on the SHIP token. Read this by replacing ‘LOOM’ by ‘SHIP’: https://loomx.io/token/

📦 Spend time on Loom’s blog post to fine tune your knowledge about blockchains interoperability https://bit.ly/35oobi5

📦 Our Sidechain is Now in Testnet Phase 3: Gamma. 20-25 validators / 51. https://bit.ly/2YOudGd

📦 First and foremost use-case for the SHIP token: power and secure the blockchain.

📦 Buy & delegate your SHIPs will make you earn up to 15-20% YoY with 1 year lock-up period! http://network.shipchain.io/en/faq

📦 Build your node: https://docs.shipchain.io/docs/validatorGuide.html

📦 Come and ask any technical questions to the CTO and top developers: https://gitter.im/ShipChain/TestNetwork

📦 Shipchain's APIs Engine and Transmission will allow integration on existing TMS and ERPs 🔓

📦 The community recommends to buy SHIP on IDEX: https://idex.market/eth/ship

@robomantis19 they should be able to help you here: @LoomSDK on telegram. Or that other channel would probably work too.

@robomantis19
thank you so much, ShipChain looks awesome by the way. Im trying to test an idea for adding a formula and data to the block that seems to run locally on a small javascript blockchain, that ouputs a number for each transaction that is a predictor of most incoming transactions that can be used in a proof of stake model for which transactions get approved first. or which blocks should get mined first. so thanks again

That's very cool Adam, thanks for sharing.
Everyone fyi we have informed the community on Telegram about yesterday's talks on Gitter along these lines:
  • LOOM's leadership has changed earlier this quarter. 2 co founders out 3 have now left to new endeavors.
  • As a result, the new CEO has informed shipchain yesterday that LOOM would drastically reduce their development of Basechain's open source code and SDK and focus on private development from now on.
  • The main consequence of this pivot is that Shipchain Inc. would have to under take more development responsibility than initially planned (split so far was Shipchain Inc = the dApps, Loom = the sidechain, Loom+Shipchain = integration of the 2).
  • John Monarch has outlined it as the lead option they were leaning on but also proposed to validators yesterday to explore alternatives such as Matic or Cosmos.
  • We've now entered an informal consultation period of likely few days where criteria such as development skills, timings, funding, scalability vs decentralization and token economics are being openly discussed.
  • Whichever option is chosen, it has been guaranteed that the SHIP token would remain the native token of the network.
  • John Monarch took the opportunity to inform us that ShipChain was approached recently by the new leader of the BiTA organization and opened discussions about Shipchain providing our sidechain and standards to them, assisting in development, and having their members on their technical + standards committee be a part of what we are doing as third party developers and enhancing the community.
  • Exchanges of yesterday outlined a couple of key arguments in favor of plan A = Loom's SDK: no more development was required from Loom to launch the mainnet and move txs to the sidechain / this route is compatible with the BiTA opportunity mentioned above. Having said that, the undeniable shift of resources would certainly imply some delays in Shipchain's development roadmap.
  • COVID-19 forced all Shipchain Inc members to WFH and adapt their internal communication methods adding to those delays. Nevertheless it was estimated that should we stay with plan A, mainnet launch would still be feasible within April (2-4 wks delay) should we get a clear consensus from validators relatively quickly.
  • All details available on Gitter.
