CORE and CORE Media were birthed out of the community which formed around the SuperNET project launched by jl777 in 2014. Now that many aspects of the project are finally coming together in fantastic form and usable products are just around the bend, we couldn’t be more pleased to help spread the word and keep our audience up to date on the latest happenings with this revolutionary project and its technology. Welcome to SuperNET Weekly!
Parallel Sync Update
“Latest release appears to do parallel sync reasonably fast on a variety of system types. It should automatically get all the way to realtime mode and then stay caught up. The data in realtime mode is still not quite right, but if it gets there that is the important thing for now.” ~jl777
$1 Dividend Per SuperNET Asset?
“Eventually. It would require a million users, each spending $1/mo in fees. Not impossible, but will take time to grow the userbase. The math is if a million users averaging $1/mo in fees, will generate close to $1 per asset, so for a penny per asset per month, it is 10,000 users. I expect a network effect will actually increase the average per user as the userbase grows. The average per user can be continually optimized, with better services, better presentation, better user experience. The retention rate of userbase also can independently be optimized. Every extra percentage of trial users that continues to be an active user is making dramatic increases in lifetime revenues. Along with cost per user acquired and percentage of users retained.” ~jl777
BTCD, CT Tech and SYNC Information
An overview of CT tech can be found here.
“Yes, still a work in progress. CT tech is a big advance and will be good to take advantage of. Also to make the best privacy, the exact profile of what you are trying to protect is needed, in addition to as much traffic as possible. In a sense getting massive Iguana use, InstantDex, Pangea, etc. are all part of privacy. Much easier to be private in downtown Manhattan than in Australian outback.
If people can run more nodes, that will help my testing. BTC is syncing faster now since there are so many more BTC nodes.

Still some issues, but I got BTCD to sync faster than BTC. Well not quite full, but once I fix the bugs, the time for the last bundle wont be so long. It seems to take 2 or 3 days using the bitcoind based BTCD to do a full sync.” ~jl777
How Many Threads Does Iguana Use?
“Number of peers + number of exchanges + number of helpers + pending connections + a few more.” ~jl777
