Q1: Is the development of aeternity going well at the moment? What are the problems that need to be solved?

Aeternity开发目前进展顺利吗?还有哪些需要解决的问题?

You can see information about the latest development progress in the Pivotal Tracker tool: . You can also start a node and join the Testnet by visiting the latest release in GitHub.

If you have any issues, you can post them in GitHub or the Forum.

The current best estimate that we have for Mainnet launch is in the Pivotal Tracker. We have asked the devs to include all outstanding tasks there as soon as possible so the estimation is improved. The good news is that the security audit is happening in parallel to development.

We have just discussed the roadmap before and after Mainnet launch yesterday during our monthly workshop and will update the community in the next two weeks ( :wink: ).

您可以在Pivotal Tracker工具中查看最新开发进度:https://www.pivotaltracker.com/n/projects/2124891。 您还可以通过访问GitHub中的最新版本来启动节点并加入测试网:https://github.com/aeternity/epoch/releases

如果您有任何问题,可以在GitHub或论坛上发帖:https://forum.aeternity.com/

我们目前的最佳估计仍然是Pivotal Tracker:https://www.pivotaltracker.com/n/projects/2124891。 我们已经要求开发者尽快包括所有未完成的任务,以便改进估算。 好消息是安全审计与开发并行进行。

我们昨天刚刚讨论了发布主网之前和之后的路线图,并将在接下来的两周内在社区更新。

Q2: Will the total amount of aeternity be increased? What is the purpose of the increase?

Aeternity总量会增发吗?增发的目的是什么?

Currently the total amount of AE tokens is ~273 million. Mining on the Mainnet will start to slowly increase this number.

目前总量为2.73亿,主网后开启挖矿,总量会缓慢增加。

Q3:What is the mining requirement for aeternity?

** Aeternity的挖矿要求是什么?**

aeternity is using Cuckoo Cycle which is a mining algorithm suitable for GPUs. NVIDIA 1080Ti will be a good choice. Cuckoo cycle is the most memory-bound mining algorithm out there. We hope that due to that fact ASICs will not be economically feasible for a long time. If you are interested in mining, please join the discussion in the Forum and GitHub. We will be announcing bounties for mining guides very soon.

Aeternity使用Cuckoo Cycle算法(相关信息:https://github.com/tromp/cuckoo),可以通过GPU进行挖矿,就像NVIDA 1080Ti将是一个不错的选择,同时aeternity挖矿结合计算机内存,显卡显存限制,以及GPU,CPU联合治理POW。你也可以在这里找到讨论:https://forum.aeternity.com/t/mining-preparation/243 和这里:

Q5:Will aeternity have official mining machines?

Aeternity官方会出矿机吗?

No, aeternity doesn’t have such plans.

不会,Aeternity没有这个计划。

Q6:Aeternity有计划来第二次来中国大陆举办见面会吗?

Is aeternity planning to hold a second meeting in mainland China?

The Chinese community is of great importance for aeternity: We already have a Chinese Telegram、Chinese Forum category and we are not only planning to hold a second meetup, but also more! Yanislav, aeternity’s founder, was in Hong Kong very recently. We will organize a new meetup as soon as possible.

Aeternity一直对中文社区十分关注,目前我们不仅有中文电报群、中文论坛版块,我们不仅计划举行第二次聚会,而且还有更多!另外, AE的创始人Yanislav刚刚来到香港。 我们将尽快组织新的聚会。

Q7:Aeternity对于的未来发展有什么规划?

What’s the plan for the future development of aeternity?

The main goal for the team is to launch the Mainnet and to allow aepp developers to start using aeternity’s technological features, such as the Varna & Sophia smart contract languages, state channels, oracles, governance and naming system. Technical improvements in the protocol will also continue beyond Mainnet launch and we plan to implement all promising technologies that could add value to the project. We are also constantly working on expanding the aeternity community and are currently looking for aembassadors.

目前团队的主要目标是启动主网并允许aepp开发人员开始使用aeternity的技术功能,例如Varna和Sophia智能合约语言,状态通道,oracles预言机,治理和命名系统。 该协议的技术改进也将继续在主网发布之后持续开发,我们计划实施更多可以为项目提供附加值的有前途的技术。 我们也在不断努力扩大aeternity社区,目前正在进行AE大使计划。

Aeternity对中国社区支持者有什么想说的?

Thank you all for supporting aeternity! aeternity is your project and we are confident that together we will build a better, faster、more secure、more decentralized world.

感谢大家对Aeternity的支持,aeternity是大家的项目,并且我们一起,会创造一个更快,更安全,去中心化的区块链世界。

Q9: Will aeternity develop blockchain business in China in the future?

Aeternity以后会在中国地区发展区块链业务吗?

China is a huge market that will be disrupted by blockchain technology. aeternity is following global developments related to decentralized technologies around the world and China is definitely a country that received special attention. Developing a business there depends on many factors, including timing. Once the time is right, aeternity will make the move.

中国是一个区块链行业中潜力非常大的市场,aeternity一直在关注包括中国在内的世界各地的加密业务发展,特别是中国,受到特别关注。 业务开发取决于很多事情,包括时间点,一旦时间点ok,我们会采取行动。

Q10:Aeternity对AE Token的价格或者价值怎么看?

What does aeternity think of the price or value of AE tokens?

We are really not concerned with the price of the AE token. What is most important for us is to launch the aeternity Mainnet. We are focused on making it secure, efficient, scalable, easy to use and user-friendly. That is our main focus.

我们真的不关心AE的价格。对我们来说最重要的是启动aeternity主网。 我们专注于使其安全,高效,可扩展,易于使用和用户友好。 这是我们的主要关注点。

Q11:Aeternity对于项目生态的看法是什么?(比如生态的数量和生态延伸的行业

What is the view of aeternity on the ecosystem of the project? (such as the quantity of ecosystem and the industry of ecosystem extension)

As a decentralized applications platform, a vibrant aepps ecosystem is of paramount importance for the team. We want to launch aeternity with some essential and easy to use aepps, but also with relevant documentation on how to create aepps. We will continue to improve the core aepps after Mainnet launch, adding new functionalities and features frequently. We will also continue to make it as easy as possible for app developers to start building their own aepps. Moreover, aeternity’s Starfleet Incubator will continue to look for promising blockchain projects that can create commercially successful aepps on aeternity, expanding the aepps ecosystem.

作为一个去中心化的应用程序平台,充满活力的aepps生态系统对团队来说至关重要。 我们希望通过一些必要且易于使用的aepps推出aeternity主网,同时还提供有关如何创建aepps的相关文档。 在主网发布后,我们将继续改进核心技术,经常添加新的功能和特性。 我们还将继续让应用程序开发人员尽可能轻松地开始构建自己的aepps。 此外,aeternity的Starfleet孵化器将继续寻找有希望的区块链项目,这些项目可以在aeternity上创造商业上成功的aepps,扩展aepps生态系统。

Q12 After mainlaunch how will aeternity change the ERC20 tokens to AE mainnet coins?

主网后AE如何兑换代币?

Upon Mainnet launch, all users holding AE ERC20 tokens will be able to exchange them for AE cryptocurrency using a dedicated Token Swap application (currently being developed). We will also provide a guide to users to help them do the swap, even if they have their AE tokens on an exchange.

在主网启动后,所有持有AE- ERC20代币的用户都可以使用专用的代币交换应用程序(目前正在开发)将它们交换为AE加密货币。 我们还将为用户提供指导,帮助他们进行交换,即使他们在交易所拥有自己的AE代币。

Q13 What is the advantage of aeternity and can aeternity give some commits about bitcoin sidechains?、

AE具有哪些功能优势,能否点评下比特币侧链?

Bitcoin-NG allows the blockchain to remain decentralized and improve its on-chain speed. What’s more, æternity employs state channels to greatly enhance the continuous real-time performance and scalability of transactions and smart contracts, without compromising their security and that of the blockchain. For more information about the aeternity’s features, please have a look at the recently published technical FAQ.

Bitcoin-NG允许区块链保持去中心化并提高其链上速度。 更重要的是,æternity利用状态通道大大提高了交易和智能合约的连续实时性和可扩展性,同时又不损害其安全性和区块链的安全性。 有关aeternity功能的更多介绍,请查看最近发布的[技术常见问题解答]:https://blog.aeternity.com/frequently-asked-questions-faq-general-tech-questions-f61e1353a6ca

Q14 What’s the relation between Vincent Zhou and aeternity?

周硕基和Aeternity的关系?

Mr. Vincent Zhou is an aeternity advisor for the Asia region, an early supporter and believer and a good friend.

周硕基是aeternity亚洲区域顾问,一个早期支持者、信仰者、好朋友。

Q15 What’s the reason for the two CTO left aeternity?

两任CTO为何离职Aeternity?

The primary reason is that they had different visions about how aeternity should develop in the future. Their vision did not correspond to the vision of the founder – Yanislav Malahov – and the rest of the aeternity team. I personally believe that both Zack and Joel are better off working on their own projects. I am also convinced that aeternity is also better off.

As in any other project, company or even government, there are certain situations in which communications differences occur. With such a far-reaching project, it is absolutely normal to have different viewpoints on what direction the technology should go. Our focus going forward is building a great team and creating a world renowned blockchain that provides tangible solutions, enabling mass adoption of the æternity blockchain.

主要原因是他们对Aeternity未来的发展方式有不同的看法。 他们的愿景与创始人 - Yanislav Malahov - 以及其他aeternity团队的愿景并不一直。 我个人认为Zack和Joel都更适合自己的项目。 我相信对aeternity也会更好。

与任何其他项目、公司甚至政府一样,在某些情况下会出现沟通差异。 有了这样一个影响深远的项目,对技术的发展方向有不同的观点是绝对正常的。 我们的重点是建立一个伟大的团队,并创建一个世界知名的区块链,提供切实的解决方案,大规模采用æternity区块链。

Q16 Ae’s POW mining block time and rewards? how long per every block ?

Ae的POW挖矿出块时间和奖励多少?

The block time should be below 10 seconds. The rewards per block have not been set up yet.

出块时间基本在10s以下,出块奖励目前还没有最终设定,有相关消息,Aeternity会第一时间公布。

Q17 How does orcale work in aeternity?

AE对预言机的处理方式是怎样的呢?

Any AE user will be able to ask oracles questions or become an oracle operator. Using oracles simply requires a special kind of transaction. We are working on a user-friendly interface for users, so it is very easy for them to use/become oracles.

任何AE用户都可以提出oracles问题或成为oracle运营商。 使用oracles简单需要使用特殊类型的转账。 我们正在为用户开发一个用户友好的界面,因此他们很容易使用/成为预言机。

Q18 1. How to see ETH’s sharding fragmentation technology, is this a good solution for TPS?

2. Can the blockchain Impossible trinity in the blockchain be broken?

1.ETH的sharding分片技术怎么看,这是一个好的解决TPS的方案吗?

2.区块链中的不可能三角理论(blockchain Impossible trinity),能否被打破?

  1. Sharding is an interesting technology but it comes with many security issues and centralization trade-offs. We are trying to avoid centralization - this is a primary concern of ours. Also, implementing sharing in such a complex (already) system is very problematic. I believe that the ETH system will grow in complexity as it tries to solve scaling.

  2. It is hard to break the trinity, but we are trying to do it. However, for us the most important aspect is decentralization. We believe that decentralization is the fundamental feature of public blockchains. I believe that through state channels and relatively fast on-chain speed, we can achieve great results in terms of solving the trilemma.

1.分片是一项有趣的技术,但它带来了许多安全问题,甚至是系统的中心化。 我们正试图避免中心化 - 这是我们的主要关注点。 而且,在这种复杂(已经复杂)系统中实现共享是非常有问题的。 我相信ETH系统在尝试解决分片时会变得越来越复杂。

2.打破三难问题是否很难,但我们正在努力去做。 然而,对我们来说,最重要的方面是去中心化。 我们相信去中心化实际上是公共区块链的基本特征。 我相信通过状态通道道和相对较快的链上速度,我们可以在解决三难问题方面取得很好的成果。

Q19 Now in the digital encryption market, how big the chance are the air coins?(air coin:coins or projects just like air(have nothing real exists)so basiclly air projects means cheating only for money has no real teams or development plans)

现在数字加密市场,有多少概率的项目是空气币?

We do not look at blockchain projects as “coins”. The price of a coin is the last thing we are concerned with (we are actually not). What we want to achieve is an efficient, fast, secure system that can be used by people worldwide. Our main focus has been and will always be on technological development and R&D. I can’t say if ETH is a good or bad investment. One should decide this for themselves, based on their believes and experience.

I would say “air-coins” are more than 95%.

The most important indicator for what is an air-coin for me is team. Blokchains are technological R&D projects. If you don’t have a world class developers team, it will be hard to create something of value.

我们不认为区块链项目是“数字货币”。 数字货币的价格是我们关注的最后一件事(实际上并非如此)。 我们想要实现的是一个高效,快速,安全的系统,可供全球人们使用。 我们的主要重点一直是技术开发和研发。 我不能说ETH是好还是坏。 人们应该根据自己的信念和经验自行决定。

我会说“空气币”超过95%。

对于我来说,最重要的指标是团队

区块链是技术研发项目。 如果您没有世界级的开发团队,那么很难创造出有价值的东西

Q20 AE和ETH相比优势在哪里?

What are the advantages of AE between ETH?

The main one is that aeternity is being built with scaling in mind from the very start and that some of the most useful features of a blockchain - like naming system and oracles (ways of acquiring information from the real world) are integrated into the core protocol. This will allow developers to create decentralized applications much more easily, not having to reply on “external” code. Moreover, aeternity is built on Erlang, a programming language created for scalability, stability and security in mind. 90% of internet nodes run on Erlang. Also, aeternity smart contracts are created to enable serious decentralized applications in which security and privacy are essential. We think that writing critical systems in Javascript-based languages is not a good idea.

I think user-friendliness of aepps is essential for mass-adoption.

主要的一点是,aeternity的构建从一开始就考虑到了可扩展性,并且区块链的一些最有用的特征 - 如命名系统和oracles预言机(从现实世界获取信息的方式)被集成到核心协议中。 这将允许开发人员更容易地创建去中心化的应用程序,而不必回复“外部”代码。 此外,aeternity是基于Erlang构建的,Erlang是一种为可扩展性,稳定性和安全性而设计的编程语言。 90%的互联网节点运行基于Erlang。 此外,还创建了aeternity智能合约,以实现严格的分布式应用,其中安全性和隐私性至关重要。 我们认为用基于Javascript的语言编写关键系统并不是一个好主意。

最后,我认为aepps的用户友好性对于大规模使用至关重要。

Q21 主链和状态通道都可以运行智能合约吗

Can the smart contract run on on both Main chain and the state channel?

A state channel itself is not Turing-complete. You can, however, execute our Turing complete smart contracts there (if this is what you mean). Maybe have a look at the recent dev team update.

状态通道本身不是图灵完备的,但是我们的状态通道可以运行(支持)图灵完备的智能合约。(如果这是你的问题),可以查看最新的开发团队更新:https://blog.aeternity.com/state-of-development-week-of-july-23rd-2018-f8f8327becb6

Q22以太应用可以直接跑在ae的evm上吗?

Can the Solidity applications run on aeternity’s EVM?

Upon mainnet launch users will be able to run basic Solidity contracts on aeternity. We might create bounties for developers to enable more complex Solidity contracts to run. Nonetheless, we plan to create extensive tutorials on how to migrate smart contracts from Solidity to Sophia.

The primary advantage of Sophia over Solidity is the native support of all primary technological features of aeternity such as oracles, state channels, naming system.

在主网上启动用户将能够在Aeternity运行基本的Solidity合同。 我们可以为开发人员创建赏金,以便运行更复杂的Solidity合约。 尽管如此,我们计划创建有关如何将智能合约从Solidity迁移到Sophia的广泛教程

Sophia优于Solidity的主要优势是对所有主要技术特征的本土支持,如预言机、状态通道、命名系统。
