Stakeholder Proposals / [Worker Proposal] CITADEL Desktop 2019
« on: December 27, 2018, 09:28:36 pm »
What do we already have?

main thread

  • low memory and CPU footprint
  • runs natively on all major desktop platforms
    • Linux distribution, install-able via `pip`
    • Windows 32bit and 64bit builds
    • macOS 10.9+ builds
  • support for common BitShares operations, such as transfers and sell orders
  • support for more esoteric BitShares operations, such as voting
  • full support for blind transfers
  • dedicated asset browser with many features
  • registration of new accounts can be done via faucet APIs or via other accounts
  • built-in support for all the gateways that share API (OpenLedger, CITADEL)
  • partial support for gateways with custom APIs (RuDEX, Winex)
  • ability to add own gateways (and faucets) via settings window
  • 100% anonymity option (all network requests can be routed through TOR, if desired)
    • this feature is best combined with Blind Transfers


CITADEL Desktop is ready to be used as your in-house wallet. Take a look at `` source file:

Code: [Select]


SHORT_DESCRIPTION="Citadel BitShares Wallet"

As you can see, it's easy to a) de-brand it, and turn into a generic BitShares wallet, b) re-brand it, and make it your own. Just provide a 1024x1024 png file with your logo, and the build system will do the rest. Precise building/bundling instructions for OSX and Windows XP, 7+ are provided in the README file.

What this worker will do?

Even if this worker won't get funded, CITADEL will continue it's work on the desktop software and continue to share with BTS community. This worker might get us more concentrated on this front and should be considered a donation-type deal.

Either way, the plan is:

  • continued work with xeroc re: python-bitshares, more PRs, etc
  • support for all 40+ bitshares operation types
  • interfaces for Proposal creation/viewing/editing
  • make it stable and reliable

General Discussion / Bitshares URL schema [ PROPOSAL ]
« on: November 21, 2018, 02:09:01 pm »
Hi guys.

I'm really really interested in finalizing the BitShares URL/URI schema standard.

For those of you, who are not aware: Currently, BitShares lack any URL schema, meaning that no bitshares software can generate or read QR codes. If we do settle on a schema, all the software will be able to actually read/write such QR codes, which would be of a great convenience to the users.

I've outlined my proposed schema here:

However, I do not believe this issue will get read by all the interesting parties, so I'm also starting this thread to get more attention.

NOTE: Some clients have gone ahead and implemented their own incompatible schemas, which were never agreed on. This is a very troubling situation, so the faster we reach some agreement on this issue, the better.

(TODO: update this post with relevant/current proposal)

General Discussion / [python-bitshares-qt] CITADEL Desktop Wallet
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:39:56 pm »
Here's the new BitShares Desktop Wallet, brought to you by the CITADEL.

Latest version - 0.2.7 -

Downloads: http://citadel2miawoaqw.onion/


Some tech details:

it's written in python, and is heavily based on xeroc's python-bitshares library, it uses QT4 for the UI, so it's easily portable to OSX, Windows and Linux. I'm providing builds for the OSX and Windows versions myself, and the Linux guys are supposed to use the source tarball.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, and report bugs; this is a very RAW first version and we expect lots of failures and problems, to be honest.

However, it already has quite a lot of features, including support for BitShares BLIND TRANSFERS (yeah!).

General Discussion / CITADEL - new BitShares Gateway
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:38:04 pm »
So guys, you all already know what BitShares is, so our regular news post about the benefits of decentralized exchanges wouldn't apply.

Therefore, let's cut to the chase. CITADEL is a new gateway (similar to OpenLedger or BlockTrades), with all the regular bells and whistles.
We host bitshares-ui webwallet, we have a full witness node, we have a gateway with our UIAs.

At the moment, there's only 1 coin - Monero - with more to come online later. So, XMR fans, you can finally trade XMR on BitShares.

But there's much more.

The most important thing we want to bring is our strong dedication to privacy and anonymity. Please read our manifesto on the website, it's quite telling.

To that end, we offer a BitShares witness node running as TOR hidden service; all our APIs are accessible as TOR hidden services as well.

We also bring you new BitShares desktop client, which deserves its own thread, which is here. http://citadel2miawoaqw.onion/

We are in the alpha stage. Please report bugs and ask questions, we'll try to improve everything, based on your feedback
