Reddcoin (#RDD) May 2020 Team Update, or “New Wallets & What to Expect when You’re Expecting PoSV v2”

Hey, ReddHeads!
To new ReddHeads, welcome! To old ReddHeads, welcome back! It’s an exciting time in Reddcoin (RDD) for a lot of reasons, and we, the Reddcoin Core development team, wanted to get a brief update out to touch base on some of the highlights.
Attached are some screenshots of our work to enhance security and interoperability, and to extend support to MacOS Catalina in our newest v3.10.1 wallet.
This wallet release also includes components and performance & security upgrades taken from the Bitcoin 0.10 codebase, and we will be following much of that same development and enhancement in our Reddcoin Core wallet in the future, with 0.11 up next.
This release is not a required upgrade (except for Catalina users), but will benefit user experience and security significantly. We’ll be publishing, of course, a full public changelog, hashes and commit list in Github along with open source code and compiled executables upon release.
But the major changes in Reddcoin v3 are just about to start, as PoSV v2 gets ready to activate. Released to the community on 12/24/19, the blockchain has (at time of writing) reached 8197 of the required 9000 block threshold, or 91.08% of our goal of supermajority. If you haven’t upgraded yet, or aren’t staking, it’s time.
After PoSV v2 activation, older (v2.x, v1.x) wallets will not be able to send transactions or stake.
We anticipate activation to be reached within a very short time period, especially once our Mac ReddHeads are able to participate, and as such we want to ensure that information for the general community is available and up to date.
1) AM I GOING TO LOSE MY REDDCOIN (RDD)??
a. NO. This is a soft-fork, and whether you’ve upgraded to a v3 wallet or not, you cannot lose your coins. The blockchain itself will remain the same, it is only the rules of staking that are changing. Older wallets WILL stop functioning immediately after the threshold is passed and PoSV v2 activates, but all that is required at that point to restore functionality is to install the new v3 wallet. If you need help, please join our Telegram or Discord live chats for community or Dev help directly. No ReddHead left behind!
2) WHAT DO I NEED TO DO??
a. If you’re staking, make sure you’re using a v3 wallet, preferably the latest version. Right now, that is v3.0.1, in a few days with the above noted release it will be v3.10.1. You may also wish to use the “Backup…” function at this time to make sure you have a backup of the only important file you need, the “wallet.dat” file. There are no mobile staking options at this time due to the nature of our PoSV protocol, but you can deposit coins in the dev team-run ReddBot on Telegram to stake if you have no other options until a mobile staking option is made available.
b. If you’re not staking, or are holding on Coinomi, or Guarda, or other 3rd party wallets, or on an exchange, or a paper wallet, you will also have no operational issues, but of course you’re encouraged to help secure the network and validate transactions, by starting to stake.
3) I’M BORED. ENTERTAIN ME!
a. OK. As successful as our first meetup was, we agree. Look for an upcoming benefit concert from Reddcoin and hopscotchmafiamusic.com at the end of this month. No, really. Free awesome music, cool people, come have a bit of fun with the ReddHead community virtually!
4) I’M HUNGRY. FEED ME!
a. Well…with the activation of PoSV v2, and the creation of Reddcoin’s self- funded development mechanism, we’re very excited to be able to provide at least some resources and RDD toward the Reddcoin Community Food & Supply Bank initiative in the near future. Reddcoin Core will also be donating any funds received in connection with the above concert event to worthy and working charities, especially if we can convince them to receive RDD (or BTC). Watch for further info about this and other charity initiatives to come. Our own efforts rely on PoSV v2 activation, but will be documented publicly and transparently as they evolve.
5) I WAS USING RDD AND THEN X (or Y or Z) HAPPENED AND NOW I’M BROKE AND SAD AND ANGRY. HELP ME!
a. Perhaps you’ve not heard about Reddcoin’s uniquely conceived “Reddcoin Restitution Fund”. Been hacked? Lost a few coins when your computer crashed or your brother formatted your hard drive? Reddcoin has committed a percentage of PoSV v2 funding to give back to users legitimately affected by events beyond their control.
Cases of extreme stupidity will be vetted on a case by case basis, obviously fraudulent claims will be laughed at, and all cases will be dependent on a reasonable standard of proof and verification. This is also going to be an evolving and good faith approach to giving back to our real ReddHead community, and will require both transparency and abuse-prevention to be successful, but we look forward to being able to help those who deserve and need it. NOTE: Trading and speculative losses aren’t covered in any of this. Obviously.
6) I WANT TO KNOW MORE!
We’re working right now to rebuild our main website www.reddcoin.com into a more informative and resource-rich site, but it’s a good starting point. We are in the process of updating our roadmap to cover the end of 2020 and the future as well, and both of those should be available and will be announced within the next month.

An overview of in-person POS and payment gateway solutions for small businesses (in the US)

Bitcoin acceptance solutions for online merchants are fairly numerous, but the options for in-person transaction solutions by physical merchants are rather limited and underdeveloped. As I've been working with a small business right now to integrate Bitcoin payments, I thought I'd share my own experiences and opinions on our present choices. Here are the various ways I can think of to accept bitcoin payments for in-person transactions, with comments:
Pros: Simplest to setup with high versatility for managing payments and choosing services on the backend. No merchant account required.
Cons: Static addresses are terrible for personal and network privacy. Hard to verify payments depending on the backend solution and availability to the cashier at the time of the transaction. Requires the use of some other currency exchange conversion tool to generate BTC amount. Burdensome on the customer to manually type in transaction total and requires trust or verification that they do so accurately. Limited-to-no bookkeeping export.
Pros: Use of proven software and existing knowledge making business setup easy. Potential, though limited, for dynamic address generation per transaction. Potential use of existing hardware (computer or staff's phones). Widespread availability of built-in currency conversion and encoding into an address+amount QR codes. Widest selection of software.
Cons: For dedicated devices, unlimited access by staff to wallet balance and send functions (unless secured by passcode requiring authorized user presence and effective procedures for use) -or- use of staff's personal devices (unless dedicated phones carried by authorized users). Likely use of static addresses with negative privacy implications. Typically slow and error-prone to convert currency totals and present to customer (e.g., must select correct currency denomination, bring up mobile keyboard, be sure to type a decimal point in the right position). Potential for showing wallet balance to the customer. Limited to no bookkeeping export.
Pros: Faster, less error-prone total entry and checkout processing with address+amount QR display. Potential for an all-in-one solution to Bitcoin acceptance with customer support and minimal or no handling or understanding of Bitcoin wallets, addresses, ect., by merchant staff. Potential for automatic bitcoin conversion to local currency with deposit to a business bank account. Potential for sales item setup and easy tap-to-add ordecart generation with sales tax addition. Potential for Payment Protocol (BIP 70-73) support. Likely use of dynamic address generation per transaction. Some bookkeeping export. Potential to avoid bookkeeping complexity with capital gains and separate currency tracking via daily currency conversion.
Cons: More complicated setup and testing. Dedicated hardware recommended. Very limited app and processor selection at this time. Less tested and more experimental. Merchant signup and approval likely needed. Recurring or per-payment costs for backend services. Likely limited backend technical support.
Pros: Most elegant solution for bitcoin payments. Bitcoin included as an option along with other payment methods without switching programs. Easiest to use and train staff to use. Possibility to include Bitcoin as one of multiple split payments in a single transaction. Inclusion in standard receipt generation. Tracking in POS suite along with other payment methods. Best bookkeeping support. Best technical support. Potential to support Bitcoin debit cards.
Cons: Most expensive (by far), unless writing your own API-based custom software. Custom software requiring the most testing. Better for medium-to-large size businesses. Dependent on POS solutions provider for continued Bitcoin support.
My recommendation: The best compromise between privacy, convenience, speed, reliability, setup time, cost, and complexity right now seems to be BitPay with their device-independent hosted checkout (recently updated to work much better) that you can keep open or bookmarked in a browser on a computer, phone, or tablet. Coinbase with the Coinbase Merchant app I can't recommend right now due to significant delays in my tests before the app would recognize payment. The Coinbox app linked to Coinbase solves this problem and functions beautifully, but right now it is not generating dynamic addresses (a bug I've reported). Coinbox linked to BitPay has a more serious bug (also reported): Rounding mismatches upon currency conversion.
If you don't care about address reuse or the merchant is willing to periodically generate new addresses, then any of the regular wallets could work including CoinBox + Coinbase (you can periodically reset and relink CoinBox to generate a new address). A business-dedicated tablet is what we use at Boss Stage Arcade.
