Pirate Chain News | March 2024 Key Insights

Ahoy! Here is this month's Pirate Chain news and updates.

At a Glance

The official launch of vARRR on Verus' PBaaS (Public Blockchain as a Service) network as an independent chain has taken place! You can access it on Verus Desktop, Verus Mobile and using the CLI binary. By mining or staking vARRR coins, you can now generate a decentralized passive income.

You can swap your ARRR for vARRR with the latest Komodo Wallet (formerly known as AtomicDEX), where vARRR is swappable 1:1 with ARRR and same in reverse.

Right after our successful vARRR launch, the much-anticipated decentralized exchange, the Pirate DEX, is getting ready for its debut! Watch for the launch of this fantastic platform!

And if that isn't enough, Pirate Chain is going trustless, making Pirate Chain even more robust.

Pirate Chain ARRR Is Going Trustless with Orchard

Forge, one of our core developer, has started implementing the trustless zero-knowledge proof protocol from Zcash Orchard in to ARRR. The changes are being made to the GitHub branch dev-orchard.

The trusted setup was one of the biggest FUD points used against Pirate Chain, despite not being a privacy issue. Even in the almost infinitely impossible chance that it was exploited, the privacy of ARRR would always stay intact.

Trusted Setup: To summarize, an elaborately secure and randomized process was undertaken to generate a set of parameters for use with zk-SNARKs. This multi-party computation involved 87 participants that had to generate data from multiple sources individually and separately all around the globe. All 87 participants would have had to be in cahoots prior to the process and store data from the ceremony to reproduce the parameters. The entire setup remains secure and irrefutable as long as there is 1 honest participant out of the 87. The parameter set has never been violated.

The Orchard update, which moves away from the trusted set up, on to the new trustless setup, will finally put that to bed and let Pirate Chain continue being the most private cryptocurrency in the world without disruption.

The Pirate Chain Decentralized Exchange

It's only a matter of time before the long awaited Pirate Chain decentralized exchange launches and becomes another huge part of the Pirate Chain privacy ecosystem. The P2P trading platform accesses the already very popular Komodo ecosystem, giving anyone that uses it more choice and volume to trade with.

P2P exchanges are the future of crypto. Unlike traditional exchanges, P2P exchanges don't control you or your keys; only you do! So say goodbye to hacked exchanges and KYC. It's just like cash, internet cash, helping you preserve your human right to financial privacy, a foundation of any good democracy.

Pirate Chain news - Pirate Chain decentralized exchange, coming soon.

Pirate Chain vARRR

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the vARRR Mainnet with the help of Verus development team and community, marking a significant milestone in advancing the Pirate & Verus ecosystem. vARRR can be included in DeFi baskets, can be used to create VerusIDs and NFTs, and can also be sent to and from Ethereum over the Verus bridge. Dive into the action with live updates and a continually evolving platform via our vARRR page.

Bridge Integration: Explore the Multiverse Tab in your Verus Desktop Wallet to discover the innovative Bridge.vARRR currency. Add it to your wallet and stay ahead of the curve! You can convert to any available currency within the bridge itself on chain or to any available currency withing Verus PBaaS using the off-chain method.

Power of Verus ID: Experience the power of staking with Verus ID, such as cash.vARRR@ (all vARRR IDs must have the extension .vARRR, not case sensitive), unlocking additional opportunities for earning rewards and contributing to the security of the network. You can also lock and unlock funds in an ID using the controlling address or sign data with the ID.

Friends, let us unfurl the tattered sails of rebellion and take a moment to speak of something precious, something vital. I speak, of course, of Pirate Chain.
Now, some cast their eyes upon the name and see only frivolity, a playful jest. But I tell you, there's more below the surface than meets the eye. Pirates, those defiant souls who roved the open seas, were not mere thieves or bandits. They were mavericks, explorers of the uncharted waters beyond the clutching grasp of kings and their controlling hands. They built their own societies, their own codes of conduct – decentralized before the word was even whispered in hushed tones.

And so, too, does Pirate Chain embody this spirit. It's not just a name, it's a manifesto! A declaration that our transactions, our wealth, our very digital identities are not pawns to be monitored, manipulated, or taxed at the whim of centralized powers.

With Pirate Chain, we chart a course toward financial sovereignty. Privacy is not a luxury but a birthright! Every transaction leaves behind not a trail for prying eyes, but a phantom whisper on the wind. ZK-snarks, these marvels of cryptography, are not just clever technology; they are shields against those who would see your financial life as theirs to exploit.

And make no mistake, this battle is not trivial. As governments and corporations tighten their grip, as surveillance capitalism seeks to commodify your every financial move, Pirate Chain stands as a bulwark. A place for those who cherish liberty to transact, to build, to create, without fear of judgment or reprisal from those who'd claim lordship over your digital life.

So I ask you, will you be mere passengers on the ship of the status quo, weathering endless storms of financial control? Or will you raise a weathered black flag with us? Will you embrace the inherent defiance of the pirate name and join us on this voyage towards true monetary freedom?

The choice, my friends, is yours. Pirate Chain awaits!
