CoinfestUK Cards Proposal

We have the possibility to get 100 scratch cards made for the event on 8th and 9th April 2016 in Manchester, with various amounts
of OKCash onto the cards for a giveaway.

This means 100 new OK users potential at the least, If the community would like to support the idea
so we can support the cards, there is a 0.48btc cost involved that should be covered in the next 5 days.

CoinfestUK BTC address for donations to this proposal: 3Gk2yBJLXafg75m9DYGUWwpdabmqAmcNrU

*If the final quantity is not met, the donations will be returned back to the senders (minus Btc transfer fee)

*Please post your donation and tx in the thread when you do for transparency and control, (if prefer more privacy send it on PM)

Feel free to post or pm me or CoinfestUK if you have any questions.

Community Call From OK Slack:

okmca [10:51 AM]

Hello. I would like to make a proposal. In my opinion, its very important for OKCash to grow in liquidity.  So I think one of the actions that should be performed is to make multiple requests to OKCash be between the currencies of ShapeShift.

You can make it here: https://shapeshift.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

CI Travis build testing / Downloads and Network Status added to OK github

CI Travis: Travis CI makes working in a team for a software project easier with automated builds. These builds are triggered automatically when each developer checks in their code to the repository which is hosted on Github. With automation, notification and testing in place, we can focus on our coding and creating, while Travis CI does the hard work of continuous integration!

Network Status: directly links to the explorer.okcash.co to watch over the network.

Downloads: Direct link to latest clients releases.


Docker for OK deployment added to Github

Docker: Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries – anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in.


Bitcointalk main ann for forums added to Github so the community can commit and collaborate directly as well,
Languages already translated have been added to it.

Everyone from the community can fork and commit their changes or new languages.

May 10 2016
ROKOS v6 "Magic Flavors" - DOWNLOAD

Steps for first boot

*Raspberry Pi, zero, 2, 3:

ROKOS accounts.

User: root / Password: raspberry (use for initial configuration and advanced changes)
User: pi / Password: raspberry (main account to use your OS and cryptocurrencies)


1-    Login with username: root  /Password: raspberry
1.2-  Type: dietpi-config
1.3-  a) Set your network connection details. B) change the root user account password. and restart.

2-    Login with username: root and the password you just set.
2.1- Type: raspi-config
2.3-  a) Set your Time Zone/Keyboard/Language. B) Change your pi user password. c) Expand the file system, and restart.

3.1- Type:  "startx"   to start the user desktop.
Congratulations! your ROKOS system is ready for use.

Welcome to the ROKOS Desktop

Final steps / BTC and OK Clients

a) Go to Menu > Internet and Click on your favorite Cryptocurrency Wallet

This will open the Cryptocurrency wallet and start sync.
(make sure you change the datadir location on the config file of your cryptocurrency before starting it if you are saving the chain on external devices)

*For some Cryptocurrencies the initial sync might take some days, wallets are fully usable after being fully Synchronized.


B) Always remember to make constant backups of your wallets and save them in USB or external media.

Use your wallets in ROKOS to plug HW and mine, Send/Receive, Stake, Share,
become a full node and support your favorite Cryptocurrency network, develop new applications,
etc, the limit is only in your imagination.

Important Security Notice:
*) Remember to create a backup for your Wallets, you can use the wallets to create them and save in different folders on a USB device.
You should ALWAYS have a backup of your wallet, Raspberry Pi Hardware, Raspbian and ROKOS Software are under development hence not responsible for missuses, electrical or compatibility issues that might cause a loss of information. It is as secure as one's ability to take care for it, same as a computer, so always have a backup of your wallets on an external device.

*) Some people tend to recommend getting a 128Gb MicroSD HC (High speed) , at the same time it does work, I do not recommend this solution, as microSD cards tend to get corrupted by the number of overwrites, to ensure the best functionality and security you should use an external HDD/USB storage device to store the chains.


You can start testing and developing new integration with ROKOS and your favorite cryptocurrencies for your IoT projects.

ROKOS Guide from zero! Full steps for New Users
by SwedishBitMiner

---Prepare the MicroSD/MicroSDHC card---

(I did this on a Windows computer, and I dont know what tool to use for Mac to install the iso file Image burner, for this guide you will have to figure out that yourself, if you use Mac)

1. Download and install SD Formatter 4.0 (This is the tool to format the SD card) from:
Windows: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_windows/SDFormatterv4.zip
Mac: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/eula_mac/SDFormatter_4.00B.pkg
(or find it yourself at: https://sdcard.org/downloads)

2. Insert the MicroSD/MicroSDHC card into your PC/Mac. (You will probably need an MicroSD to SD adapter for this).

3. Start SD Formatter 4.0 and click the [Option] button. In there you change from "FORMAT TYPE: QUICK" to "FORMAT TYPE: (FULL)Erase", just leave the "FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT" in OFF and click the [OK] button so start the format. When the card is completely formatted click the [Exit] button to close SD Formatter.

4. Download and install Win32 Disk Imager (This is the iso file Image burner) from:
Windows: http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/files/latest/download

5. Download ROKOS Core (rokosv6magic.zip) and unzip the ISO file (This is the awesome ROKOS Core "Operating System" that we are going to install on the SD card) from:
Download: http://bit.ly/rokos6magicflavors
(or find it yourself at: http://rokos.space

6. Start Win32 Disk Imager, press the "little blue folder" and select the "rokos5.img" file that you did extract. Make sure your SD card is selected in the list to the right and press the [Write] button. It will tell you that it can corrupt the SD card, just press [Yes] to continue the installation, when the installation to the SD card is done press the [Exit] button to close Win32 Disk Imager.

7. Now "Safely remove" your SD card from the computer.

8. Put the MicroSD/MicroSDHC card in your Raspberry Pi 2, and make sure you got an USB Keyboard, Monitor (via HDMI), and and Internet cable connected to the Raspberry Pi 2 before you connect the power cable to your Raspberry Pi 2.

---Installing ROKOS ---

Bitsquare welcomes OKCash

OKCash integration to BitSquare - The Decentralized Bitcoin Exchange


OKCash is getting integrated in the coming release/update for Bitsquare

Visit the Bitsquare website at: https://bitsquare.io/

What is Bitsquare?

Bitsquare is built for those who:

    Want to exchange a national currency such as dollars, euros, or yen for bitcoin.
    Want to exchange a wide range of alternative crypto currencies for bitcoin.
    Do not want to trust any exchange for holding your funds.
    Do not want to forfeit control or privacy to a central authority in order to trade with other individuals.
    Regard financial transactions as a form of private speech that should be protected from surveillance by banks, governments, and other institutions.

Bitsquare is designed to be:

    Decentralized – there is no single point of failure.
    Safe – Bitsquare never holds your funds.
    Instantly accessible – no need for approval from a central authority.
    Private -no one except trading partners exchange personally identifying data.
    Open – every aspect of the project is transparent.
    Easy – we take usability seriously.


Exchanges play a critical role in the bitcoin ecosystem. Without them, it would be nearly impossible to buy or sell bitcoins for euros, dollars, yen or yuan. Bitcoin would be a market without liquidity; bitcoin would be worthless.

Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin with the motivation to solve the problems of centralized payment systems so it seems inconsistent that centralized Bitcoin exchanges are still the primary way to acquire bitcoins. In our opinion the dominance and vulnerability of centralized exchanges is the Achilles heel in the current Bitcoin ecosystem.

There have been many discussions in the forums about how to build a pure P2P based solution but there is still no real decentralized bitcoin exchange available yet.

That’s where Bitsquare comes in.

We have developed a solution which is based on pure P2P infrastructure. While the transfer of national currency requires the involvement of traditional payment channels like banks or payment processors, we are not dependent on any particular one. Their role is limited to what it should be: They transfer national currency. No power of censoring, confiscating, monitoring or controlling your financial interaction.

To keep reading about the Philosophy of Bitsquare, and how we solve the involved challenges to make it secure and easy to use please read our White Paper:

Servers/DNS upgrades complete.

Because Server upgrades are incomplete without full site upgrades.

New OKCash Community website Rebuilt from scratch, Redesigned and Converted to OpenSource

The community can participate and/or download and start your own OKCash.co mirror site, or just invite your friends to learn more about OK on the new Website.

Now everyone can be part of the making and push their commits and/or suggestions to the git.

We should start rolling the site with the different languages it supports in the coming days,
same way by being open source, the translation process for the rest of the languages will
be way easier and friendly, so we can expect a lot of languages integrated in the near future.
