The weekly update on BitTube — 15th of June.

Step By Step, Bit by Bit, Stone By Stone (Yeah)… if you are a fan of Whitney Houston, you know what I mean, but in our case, it means we are preparing for the cornerstone changes of the BitTube reward distribution system.

First steps on rewards allocation.

The first exertion will be splitting 1,5 % of the block reward for development and marketing each. This will give the dev team a playground to polish and test the new dispersion where further on v5 the full airtime based rewards will take place.

Together with the rebrand in April, BitTube went through a considerable backbone scaling preparation which still keeps the dev team busy. Now they have unfolded transaction optimizations to reduce the block size. In addition, the system will enforce RCT (Ring Confidential Transactions) where only the sender and receiver can see the actual transaction amount, which also helps reduce the block size further on.

New CN Heavy Custom Algorithm.

At the end of the month on block height 110 000 new CN heavy based PoW algorithm will take place. It has custom tweaks to thwart FPGAs, ASICs, and botnets. All mining software will be updated. The dev team is working on automatic update, but at the moment it should be done manually.

Dynamic transaction fees.

From block height 110 000 on fees will depend on the block size where miners get more total fees, and users get cheaper transaction fees as the network grows.
