DNotes Global, Inc. Announces May 12 Cryptopia Listing Date for DNotes 2.0

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced that its DNotes 2.0 digital currency will be listed on the Cryptopia exchange, effective May 12, 2018. The company revealed the news after receiving confirmation from Cryptopia, and a DNotes Global spokesperson praised the exchange’s service team for their professionalism.

“Cryptopia’s service team has been working closely with us to complete the listing process, and they have been helpful and responsive at every step of the way,” DNotes Global CEO Alan Yong said. “We have been impressed with how quickly they have handled the transition from DNotes to DNotes 2.0, and the great care they have taken to minimize any confusion for their exchange customers.”

DNotes Global, Inc. recently completed the successful launch of its DNotes 2.0 digital currency, which replaces the DNotes coin that launched in 2014. The new coin includes several important upgrades designed to provide greater benefits for stakeholders and enhance the company’s efforts to achieve its goal of achieving widespread mainstream acceptance and adoption on a global scale.

The upgrades include a switch to a proof-of-stake (POS) network consensus algorithm – a change that was prompted by the company’s desire to move influence from the mining community to DNotes owners and users. The new system will also enable DNotes stakeholders to earn DNotes by using their DNotes wallets to run nodes that support the coin’s network.

A company spokesperson has confirmed that DNotes Global has been in contact with other digital currency exchanges, as part of its effort to get DNotes 2.0 listed for trading on those platforms as well. The listing process is reportedly a top priority for DNotes Global, as the crypto community relies on the exchanges to acquire and trade digital currencies.

In the case of Cryptopia, the exchange has reportedly set the May 12 deadline to ensure that its customers are not confused by the transition from DNotes to DNotes 2.0.

Meanwhile, DNotes Global’s efforts to complete the stakeholder coin swap continue. The company had previously advised DNotes holders to remove their coins from the exchanges by April 16, 2018. Stakeholders who completed those transfers and stored their DNotes in the secure DNotesVault were provided with automatic swapping from DNotes to DNotes 2.0.

According to a company FAQ, stakeholders who have not yet swapped their old DNotes for the upgraded coins will still be able to do so in the immediate future, but the process will be done on an individual basis. In addition, DNotes Global had announced an April 16 soft deadline for miners. DNotes mined after that cutoff date will not be eligible for the DNotes 2.0 swap.

Company officials have emphasized the importance of ensuring that stakeholders enjoy a seamless transition to the upgraded coin. CEO Alan Yong has suggested that the company’s dedication to managing that transition is essential for achieving the broader goal of mass acceptance and adoption of the DNotes digital currency.

“Many members of the DNotes community have been with the coin since its initial launch,” Yong said. “Over that four years of involvement with the project, they have seen our commitment to ensuring that DNotes is understandable, accessible, and easy-to-use. With DNotes 2.0, we intend to maintain those important benefits as we continue to strengthen and expand the DNotes ecosystem and establish DNotes 2.0 as the world’s first globally accepted digital currency.”

Yong also said that additional announcements about other exchange listings will be revealed as those exchanges make their decisions in the weeks and months to come.

DNotes Global, Inc. Announces Release of DNotes 2.0

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced the production release of its DNotes 2.0 digital currency. The launch comes in the wake of a pre-release on March 18, 2018, and a successful period of alpha testing. The upgraded coin is designed to replace the first-generation DNotes that were first developed in 2014, with new features and benefits for stakeholders.

According to company reports, DNotes will continue to be a blockchain-powered digital currency that provides users with the payment system they need to directly transfer value quickly, efficiently, and at less cost than most third-party payment systems. The upgrades are designed to provide the digital currency with greater value and utility while offering improved benefits for those who own and use the coin.

Perhaps the most noticeable change is the adoption of proof-of-stake (POS) as the currency’s new network consensus algorithm. DNotes had previously relied on proof-of-work for transaction validation. The decision to switch to POS was motivated by a desire to place more influence with the digital currency’s stakeholders and reduce the influence of miners.

With the new system, DNotes owners will have the ability to run network-supporting nodes using their DNotes wallets, and receive payouts based on their coin balance in relation to the total amount of staked DNotes coins.

DNotes Global, Inc. CEO Alan Yong suggested that the new system would provide users with new incentives and increased influence. He also addressed the company’s broader vision and immediate plans for facilitating its long-term goals.

“DNotes 2.0 has been four years in the making, and now is the right time for these changes to take effect,” Yong said. “Though it is true that the digital currency industry remains in a nascent stage, we believe that it has matured enough that a serious effort can now be made to achieve more widespread acceptance and adoption of the technology. This is the beginning of that effort.”

According to Yong, DNotes 2.0 represents the next stage of the company’s development as it continues to develop and expand the DNotes ecosystem. As he notes, DNotes is a different kind of digital currency project, focused on achieving its goal of becoming a globally-accepted payment system and parallel currency that is accessible, inclusive, and financially-empowering.

Much of the DNotes ecosystem will continue to be familiar to long-time users. For example, the company’s innovative cold storage “online fortress” – DNotes Vault – will continue to serve as a primary web interface for DNotes stakeholders, offering quick and easy-to-use digital currency management tools for its users. At the same time, the Vault will continue to provide state-of-the-art protection for those users’ funds, backed by a guaranteed fund that protects those holdings.

Other features will receive a fresh makeover, however. Long-time DNotes holders will quickly notice important changes to the DNotes Cryptocurrency Investment Savings Plans. The new CRISP payouts will provide those stakeholders with blockchain-generated interest on funds that they hold in their DNotes accounts for a certain amount of time. That interest is expected to be earned at a rate of 0.5% every 30 days.

DNotes 2.0 will also implement a new automated invoicing system that adds a unique transaction invoice number at the blockchain level, to simplify digital currency commerce for online merchants who choose to offer their customers the option to make purchases using DNotes.

“With the launch of DNotes 2.0, we are furthering our commitment to taking a proactive approach to digital currency mass adoption,” Yong said. “Digital currency’s promised benefits will not materialize overnight and will only be realized with active efforts to bring this technology into the mainstream. DNotes intends to lead that effort.”

DNotes Global, Inc. Announces Launch of New Website

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced that it had formally launched its company website. The new online portal provides information about the company’s mission and vision for helping to facilitate mass acceptance and adoption of its DNotes digital currency. The site also hosts the recently-released DNotes white paper and pitch deck.

Visitors to the site are greeted with a message that reflects DNotes Global’s raison d’etre: “Paving the Way for Digital Currency Mass Adoption.” In describing the company’s mission, the website makes clear that DNotes Global’s existence is defined by its commitment to facilitating that mass adoption, while protecting the DNotes currency and providing it with intrinsic value that other digital currencies lack.

According to the website, the company has a clear strategy for achieving its objectives:

“DNotes Global accomplishes this goal by offering a comprehensive ecosystem of businesses that operate in the commercial marketplace, and by sharing equity in those ventures with the currency. DNotes Global is committed to bringing a working valuation model to its digital currency, based on real-world financial rules that make investing easier, safer, and more secure. We believe that this approach will be the most effective way to ensure that cryptocurrency’s incredible potential can be enjoyed by everyone around the world.”

The site provides ready access to both the company white paper and pitch deck. The white paper offers readers a detailed explanation of DNotes Global’s strategy for facilitating mass adoption of its digital currency, while the pitch deck offers an effective overview of the company’s plans.

Company co-founder and CEO Alan Yong acknowledged that the DNotes approach may seem unfamiliar to those who are used to jargon-laden, technical documents. “This presentation documentation is unique too, in that it is neither a business plan nor a white paper. It’s a hybrid,” he writes in his introduction to the white paper.

“We want to share with you what we have accomplished so far, with few resources other than the tireless contribution of our dedicated supporters worldwide. We are lean, agile, and collaborative – and committed to a culture of respect. We also share a common mindset that is always striving to be best in class for the mutual benefit of everyone.”

As the website and white paper make clear, the DNotes Global approach is based upon the company’s belief that mass acceptance and adoption of digital currency is not something that will be achieved without some proactive effort to make it happen. The DNotes strategy for accomplishing that objective involves the creation of an integrated ecosystem focused on building bridges between the decentralized world of digital currency – and its many services and benefits – and the real world centralized economy.

Yong says that much of that ecosystem’s foundation has already been laid, but there is still much work remaining. The website’s launch, along with the release of the company’s white paper and pitch deck, mark the beginning of the next stage of DNotes Global’s strategy to “confront one of the biggest challenges of our generation – making mass acceptance of digital currency a reality in our lifetime.”

DNotes Global, Inc. Announces Release of DNotes White Paper

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced the release of the DNotes white paper, which provides a comprehensive examination of the digital currency’s purpose, objectives, and strategy. According to a company spokesman, the white paper’s release is an important part of the company’s accelerated effort to promote and advance DNotes’ vision of achieving widespread acceptance and adoption on a global scale.

The DNotes white paper is as unique as the DNotes digital currency. Unlike many other digital currency white papers, the one presented by DNotes Global, Inc. focuses less attention on the technology behind the currency and more on how the company intends to achieve the elusive goal of bringing digital currency into the mainstream economy by facilitating mass adoption.

That uniqueness should come as no surprise to those familiar with the now-four-year-old DNotes project. As company CEO Alan Yong notes, “From its inception, DNotes has always been a different type of project. Unlike most digital currencies with a tendency to follow others by being involved in just one or two things, the DNotes team has always been committed to ensuring that the DNotes cryptocurrency would be best in class in every area that matters. Four years later, that commitment remains as strong as it has ever been”

The document’s presentation focuses on simple, understandable explanations, using real world examples and informative graphics to make its case. The result is a white paper that offers not only a look at the coin’s technological benefits, but an explanation of the DNotes Global, Inc strategic plan as well.

Throughout the white paper, readers will discover an in-depth examination of the company’s inner thought processes and receive an introduction to the holistic approach that Yong and his team are applying in their efforts to achieve mass adoption for the DNotes digital currency.

That approach is unique as well. DNotes Global, Inc. is working to expand the DNotes Decentralized network, a developed ecosystem that integrates the network, business and technology consulting, and NextGenVC into one cohesive, unified business enterprise. DNotes’ holistic approach to developing this ecosystem is patterned after the successful business principles promoted by co-founder Yong.

“As a for-profit company,” Yong wrote in his introduction to the white paper, “DNotes Global, Inc.’s core mission is to provide the leadership and management to protect and promote the best interest of the currency. DNotes Global is focused on bringing the DNotes digital currency into the mainstream, with a platform and ecosystem that will give it real intrinsic value like cash.”

As the white paper makes clear, DNotes is a “big bold vision of global scale: to create a truly inclusive supplemental currency that is accessible to everyone in the world.” According to Yong, however, the achievement of that goal is not something that can just be left to chance. He suggested that it is also not something that can be accomplished on a limited scale.

“Realistically, mass acceptance of digital currency cannot be achieved in isolation, on a small scale, with inadequate funding, an unsettled vision, and wrong timing,” he declared. “Arnold H. Glasow said it best when he said, ‘Success is simple. Do what’s right, the right way, at the right time.’ DNotes is guided by these simple principles and insights from my book, “Improve Your Odds: The Four Principles of Business Success.”

DNotes Global, Inc. Announces Launch of DNotes 2.0 Alpha Pre-Release

By | News | No Comments

DNotes Global, Inc. today announced the launch of its Alpha Pre-Release of the DNotes 2.0 digital currency on March 18, 2018.  According to a company spokesperson, DNotes 2.0 represents a significant upgrade of the original DNotes currency first introduced in 2014.

DNotes is a blockchain-powered digital currency and payment system that enables its stakeholders to send funds to one another in a rapid, efficient, and low-cost way. The upgraded version of the digital currency will add new features and capabilities and signals the start of the next stage of DNotes’ push to achieve global mass acceptance and adoption.

“With DNotes 2.0, we have upgraded the technology behind our digital currency as part of our broader effort to build out the DNotes ecosystem,” DNotes Global, Inc co-founder and CEO Alan Yong said. “The changes we have implemented with this launch are a crucial part of that strategy and will help to solidify our ecosystem’s foundation as we continue onward toward earning acceptance as a globally-accepted parallel currency and payment system.”

DNotes Global, Inc. also announced that the new DNotes will no longer operate using the “proof-of-work” protocol. To avoid the potential for mining centralization and dilution of stakeholder influence, the company has chosen proof-of-stake as its new network consensus algorithm. The new system enables stakeholders to use their wallet to run a node supporting the DNotes network.

The staking system provides payouts in newly-generated DNotes. Each node’s payout odds are commensurate to its owner’s coin balance as a proportion of the total number of coins being ‘staked’ on the network. The company has suggested that anticipated rewards for staking will be around 2% of the total coins in circulation each year.

“The rewards are just part of the benefit, however,” Yong noted. “The real benefits come from the increased influence that proof-of-stake provides to DNotes stakeholders. POS redistributes economic incentives from miners to coin holders, but it also removes the risk of miners exercising their influence to slow or prevent progress – a problem that has plagued coins like Bitcoin for some time now.”

The DNotesVault will continue in its role as a web portal and online fortress that provides an easy to use interface for users while offering state-of-the-art protection for account-holders’ funds. The new DNotes will reportedly enjoy the same guarantee fund protection that the original version provided to users.

The currency’s Cryptocurrency Investment Savings Plans will see a change. With DNotes 2.0, the company has expanded the plans to ensure that all DNotes users enjoy their benefits. Under the new system of rewards, every DNotes depositor will earn interest on holdings held in their account for set periods of time, at a rate of 0.5% interest every 30 days.

As Yong notes, ‘Digital currency was always meant to be a promise: a promise that says that your money should be yours to control. With DNotes 2.0, we are one step closer to making that promise a reality for everyone around the world: more control over your own money, and greater financial inclusiveness. That’s the future of money.”

“The launch of DNotes 2.0 is just the beginning. In the weeks and months to come, we will have additional announcements about new ecosystem features, new programs, and exciting new changes. Stay tuned, because the future of money is here – and the best is yet to come.”

Post your DNotes 2.0 pre-alpha address here or send an email to [email protected], and we will send you some coins.

Regression Testing
For those of you that are familiar with running console commands, if you would like to participate in regression testing, please use this form:

Invoice Number
This is the first step in the implementation of the automated invoicing system, allowing you to add an invoice number to a transaction.
You may attach an invoice number after the address by adding a plus sign after the address, followed by the invoice number.

Address = ScsZXeo2PeLzNPVcjHdtkjQX5zY6phjTEm
Invoice Number = 1kH98asd9Hb3U8aksdnJNgs7923nasdj
Send Payment to = ScsZXeo2PeLzNPVcjHdtkjQX5zY6phjTEm+1kH98asd9Hb3U8aksdnJNgs7923nasdj
The client will recognize the difference between the address and invoice number and store them on the blockchain accordingly.

Scenario you can test:
Send a payment to an address with a random invoice number attached as the example above outlines.
Verify in your transactions that the invoice number was attached.
You should also be able to verify this independently from any node by getting the transaction id, going to the console (help > debug window > console), and typing gettransaction <transaction id>

Address = ScsZXeo2PeLzNPVcjHdtkjQX5zY6phjTEm
Invoice Number = 1kH98asd9Hb3U8aksdnJNgs7923nasdj
Transaction id = 2e56d470d068a89d51bf20f83c25622d7d5dc16f9a0b7763d3e6940733d4d791-000
gettransaction 2e56d470d068a89d51bf20f83c25622d7d5dc16f9a0b7763d3e6940733d4d791-000
Look for: “invoiceNumber” : “1kH98asd9Hb3U8aksdnJNgs7923nasdj”
And verify it matches your invoice number.

Note: Our block explorers will look for invoice numbers and have an API to call from invoice number. We may implement a RPC call for it as well. This will allow anyone to independently verify a address and invoice number from anywhere.

If you are familiar with the staking process, there are no significant changes.
1 minute block times.
Block reward is 2% of total coins in circulation, divide by the number of blocks in a year.
How much you actually earn will depend on how many coins people are currently staking.
Weighted against the network.

Block Reward Example:
Number of Coins = 130,000,000
2% of 130,000,000 = 2,600,000
Number of blocks in a year = 525,600
Block reward: 2,600,000 / 525,600 = 4.94672754…
The block reward will change every block.

Note: You will experience blocks that are staked and then later rejected.

How to stake:
Setup and staking video:
Open your wallet – Open dnotes-qt.exe
Encrypt your wallet – Settings > Encrypt Wallet > Enter password > Enter Password Again > Click ok > Click ok > wallet will close. Re-open wallet.
Make sure you have coins in your wallet and they are confirmed and mature.
Unlock your wallet – Settings > Unlock Wallet > Enter password > Click ok.
In the lower left the lock should be unlocked and the up arrow should be green. You will now be staking. You can hover your mouse over the lock and the up arrow to see the status.

CRISP reward will be 0.5% every 1440 blocks (1 day for pre-release, but it will be 1 month for actual release). This will occur automatically.

All coins must remain in the same address for the entire period.
If you deposit at 1441, you will not receive CRISP reward at block 2880, your first CRISP reward would be block 4320.

Scenarios to test:
If you received CRISP reward with an online wallet.
If you received CRISP reward with an online and staking wallet.
If you received CRISP reward with an offline wallet.
