Asynx is a global research and development collaboration project consisting of academics, scholars, professors, scientists, mathematicians, physicists, statisticians, cryptographers, econometricians, historians, biologists, geneticists, theologians, enterprise architects, technical authors, copywriters, publishers, lawyers, miners and developers from all over the world.

Asynx is headed by British Polymath, Dr. Roy Murphy, who brings with him 60+ scientists from The Theoretix Consortium, a not-for-profit global research group who have worked together on collaboration projects and applied research for over a decade.

Theoretix members have worked with various government cyber security agencies around the world and some of our researchers and enterprise architects have worked for Google, Amazon, Apple, AWS, eBay, Yahoo, Facebook, Samsung, Kyocera, NASA, HTC, RBS, Barclays, RackSpace, NameCheap, GoDaddy, New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, London Stock Exchange and lastly (but most importantly) Starbucks!

Armed with enough coffee and some of the brightest minds in the world, our team with over 1700 combined years experience in scaling the biggest brands in the world are now uniting to bring Bitcoin Cash and economic freedom to every person on the planet.

Asynx is a high performance, commercial grade, full node Bitcoin Cash implementation. We are professional in every aspect of the release process prior to launching release candidate software by using iterative agile methodologies in our development lifecycle, best practices in enterprise architecture which include continuous development cycles, unit testing, penetration testing, security audits and private testnets and mining pools.

Our design principles adopt Six Sigma operational security set against a TOGAF architectural framework.

A non-fixed protocol is somewhat oxymoronic. The definition of 'Protocol' is, "The accepted or established code of procedure or behaviour in any group, organization, or situation. A formal or official record of scientific experimental observations."

Instead of using Bitcoin as a developmental sandpit for showcasing clever and complex code prowess of developers attempting to make names for themselves at best, or to be clandestine puppets for darker forces to inject their own underhand financial agendas into a functioning system at worst; rules for what defines the nature of this capitalist economic system was given a ruleset in the form of the original BItcoin whitepaper and more information about the careful and deliberate ballet of systems, methods, routes, scripts, functions, parsers, hashes, loops, repeats, limits, timings and allocations was eluded to by its creator, Satoshi Nakamoto.

Asynx locks down any potential changes to that which was described in Satoshi's whitepaper, publicly documented accounts of the workings of Bitcoin by Satoshi Nakamoto, and any functionality that was present in Bitcoin v0.1.

This includes, but not limited to: opcodes, block size, block time, tx pool, orphan txs, difficulty target, difficulty duration, block creation fee, merkle tree, PoW and coinbase. Additionally, none of the current message types can be deprecated and there are elements of Bitcoin's common structure, such as strings, integers, vectors, encoding, IDs, block headers and requests which are partially covered. We will be working closely with our technical partners to come to a quick consensus on these items and publish them here as soon as possible.

Just like the internet protocol which is fixed and stable, Bitcoin must first lock down the defining ruleset, to create a schema that the rest of the world trust they can innovate upon without the goalposts being moved. Only then can the explosion of commercial applications be safely deployed.

In nearly all data systems, layers are used to structure and modularise data into protocols, schemas, rulesets and libraries to allow efficient disintermediation of data. There are many examples of this. The internet has the Internet Protocol (IP), the principal layer governing routing functions of the internet. The 2nd layer is the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP/IP) which is a suite of transmission protocols with 5 layers governing data link, network and transmission rules. A 3rd layer would be the application layers, such as HTTP, SMPT, FTP and POP, which all have to follow the rules of the 2nd layer to get on the internet at the 1st layer. There are also other layers with protocols in the internet layer such as IPv4 and IPv6.

In Network Topology there are nodes, edges, faces, chains and polygons. In Web Design you have structure, styles and behaviours; protocol layers such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Dynamic, responsive and database driven web applications can use design pattern layers such as MVC (Model, View, Controller).

Bitcoin's layer 1 is everything defined in the application's protocol to make it a full-mining node. It requires a daemon, a wallet and a network to connect to. The total Turing predicate scripting language of Bitcoin's opcodes can be called from a second layer, below the primary protocol. This allows tokenisation and smart contracts to be created which can safely interact with the Bitcoin layer and immutably place their message transactions directly into the Bitcoin ledger. This is called "on-script".

This is where Bitcoin Core (BTC) got things very wrong by removing the original opcodes and breaking both the economic incentive and network structure of Bitcoin by introducing sidechains. Sidechains such as SegWit and the Lightning Network are layer 0 solutions. By this we mean that BTC is now a settlement layer for a chain where the transaction takes place. This actually makes BTC the sidechain of Lightning, which make BTC the 2nd layer of both Lightning and SegWit.

It is extremely important to understand these basic rulesets and having a defined locked protocol means that the top layer is the internet equivalent of peer-to-peer electronic cash for the world, (Bitcoin's killer app), whilst all of the innovation happens in the 2nd layer protocols which will be defined to power the blockchain solutions of the future. Bitcoin is cash. Let's keep it that way, forever.

Absolutely! Our boffins are here to check that everything is released safely according best practices. We test, test and test again. Whilst we're testing, we have other groups within the team building our second layer, next-generation protocols, schemas, frameworks, services and APIs, to enable others to build whatever they can imagine.

We are always looking for great contributors to make their mark on the most important software in the history of humankind. If you think it's as important as we do to bring economic freedom to the world, please get in touch.

Decentralisation is a feature of the network topology of Bitcoin, not the primacy. Many wrongly think that this is some anarchical socialist system to create equality. Not all people are equal and never should they ever be. It's just a fact of life. Everyone is special in their own way and some people are better suited to some things than others, it's what makes us all unique. Redistributing the worlds wealth will just mean that everybody is equally poor. Bitcoin's economic structure means that we can bank the unbanked. This sadly accounts for two thirds of the world's population today.

Bitcoin is a capitalist economic system, much more in-line with Austrian School Economics than the current central bank, fractional reserve, Keynesian fiat system we leave behind. Bitcoin has never been anti-bank, only anti central bank. Law is Law, and Bitcoin has to fit into the existing laws of the land in order to function with the SEC, FCA and other international governing bodies and institutions.

There is no such thing as decentralised software, no matter how open source you make it. There will always be a select few with the keys to merge code and reject requests. Even DAOs (distributed autonomous organisations) have set governance and someone always has veto powers to affect code changes.

With disparate groups of people, the vox populi has high entropy with mean averages. In simple terms, it means that the general puplic en masse, when voting, produce less conceptual understanding as a group collaborating over a given problem set. When asked individually and the mode result taken, the results are quite different. By letting the voice of the people decide, the vote of the astutely learned, is diluted by the voice of the ignorant. Bitcoin is not a socialist system and only miners get to vote with their hashpower. Proof of work is the only economic incentive of Bitcoin.

Asynx nodes are collaborative and will continue to be built with only the miner in mind, to have an competitive edge. In this sense we should be regarded as a benevolent dictatorship, with a high morale compass and an unshakable desire to protect Bitcoin for future generations and create more wealth in the world by allowing others to freely trade and compete within the marketplace.

Canonical Transaction Ordering is a proposal by some BCH developers and comes with some potential benefits, such as improved parallelisation and aids the process of sharding. Replacing the current Topological Transaction Ordering (TTOR) also comes with some significant risks.

After extensive research, we have built and tested CTOR enabled implementations and quickly derived an adverse effect upon 0-conf transactions. Secondly, any attempts at sharding, although outwardly seen as a good thing to aid scaling; our methods do not support any proposal which changes the economic or network structure gifted to us by Satoshi Nakamoto in Bitcoin v0.1.

Locking down the Bitcoin Cash protocol is our immediate primary objective, so breaking current applications both future and present that rely on zero confirmations (what makes Bitcoin usable as cash) is a complete dead end. There are many ways to skin a cat (as the saying goes) and there are many ways to achieve the same benefits of CTOR in a much more efficient way without changing consensus rules or breaking critical parts of the Bitcoin Cash architecture.

Opcodes in Asynx Bitcoin Cash Nodes follow the original opcodes created by Satoshi Nakamoto in Bitcoin v0.1. That is part of the protocol, which, bar any emergency addenda will stay locked, forever.

Satoshi's opcodes gave Bitcoin just enough functionality (no more, no less) to be a Total Turing Machine. Understanding this means that there is nothing that can't be achieved with the predicate scripting language that already exists. Any operating system-like constructs can be created with the scripting language that has now and forever been re-enabled.

OP_DATASIGVERIFY (DSV) and OP_CHECKDATASIG (CDS) are proposals to re-invent the wheel. These can be used to run verification operations upon a signature, message hash and public key triplet. DSV is also almost line for line an exact copy of a mature, yet little known opcode named OP_CHECKSIGFROMSTACK, an Elements Project opcode that brings sidechains to BTC, including Liquid (by Blockstream) and the Lightning Network!

DSV also will allow in-script looping (very dangerous in the wrong hands) and the creation of Oracles that check the validation of certain signatures. Essentially, the oracle can determine definitive outcomes without the need for a 3rd party outcome or decision. This will allow on-chain gambling to take place, which will make Bitcoin Cash illegal in many jurisdictions. This cannot be allowed with money for humankind, as merchants won't be able to accept it without breaking the law.

Finally, DSV allows you to call transactions from a transaction statelessly, looping in-script. These methods are patent pending from nChain and if/when granted would essentially patent the Bitcoin protocol, which should always remain free. No Bitcoin Cash implementation should ever be stupid enough to let this happen.

Bitcoin's economic structure was fixed at creation and should not be tampered with. DSV is an aggressive attempt to subsidise what can be easily achieved using ECDSA techniques to arrive at the same conclusion. The cost per byte is higher using the latter technique and DSV would compress around a 1MB request into a single byte. This would steal per-byte revenue from the miners who secure the network and should be justly rewarded for their investment. Adding DSV usurps the miner and enforces socialist equality rules that do not belong in a purely capitalist economic system. It's called Proof-of-Work for a reason.

Asynx is the first Bitcoin Cash node implementation to completely remove the blocksize limit. This includes both the hardcoded blocksize cap and number of requests.

It is not just as simple as changing a number, many thousands of hours of unit testing, pen testing, security audits and hardware configurations across many disparate groups have been collaborating over a broad spectrum of scenarios.

Prior to our Alpha launch, we have already tested 600,000 transactions per second using the native parallel validation methods and 20MB transactions with up to 380GB blocks.

Asynx gives miners a choice to set their own limitations in a place that is forefront within the UI and not hidden away in a config subfolder. For the first time ever, blocksizes are only hardware limited and will continue to scale with Moore's Law.

No. Although we believe Graphene is superior to xThin and Compact Blocks for creating smaller blocks, all have the same drawbacks that creates problems with the block relay scheme, which requires restructuring of the p2p network.

The λ variance of 1/λ² where lambda is blocks divided by unit time, means that variance for a 1 minute block is a 100x the variance of a 10 minute block. This means pre-consensus which speeds up block propagation time, increases variance, thus drastically increasing the orphan rate for the same subset.

Essentially, all proposals try to save the overhead of sending transaction data twice; once at block time, once earlier. The once earlier technique requires a form of pre-consensus which is later confirmed to be true upon block validation. All of these proposals change the Bayesian nonparametric inference and multivariates of Bitcoin as a Poisson Distributed System.

Any form of pre-consensus not only breaks the fundamental economic per-byte incentive structure of Bitcoin by introducing weak blocks, it is a poor solution to give hobby nodes more disk space in exchange for an increased mempool.

Asynx as a professional, commercial node implementation favours mempool efficiency (essential for low fees and block propagation) over abundantly cheap storage. Pre-consensus opens up scenarios for all manner of security risks, so our solutions will focus on advanced pruning, compression and parallelisation techniques.

No. Never. Ten minutes isn't just an arbitrary number plucked from thin air. It is a fine balance in a complex distributed system. The Theoretix Consortium, headed by Dr. Roy Murphy showcased an R&D project codenamed HashCoin in 2012, forked from Bitcoin 0.6.3 to showcase to his peers the phenomena of chain fragmentation with compounded lambda variance of Bayesian nonparametric inference of a Poisson Distributed System.

We set block time to 5 seconds, built our own mining pool for the project and threw 800Gh/s at it for 5 months. It broke, ne less than 20 times, half of which occurred in the first 48 hours. We grew to understand what was going on, what was breaking and which code changes it needed to be much more efficient, which kept it going long after Bitcoin would have screeched to a halt.

The more you reduce block time, the more variance plays a significant role in orphan creation. This compounds logarithmically with scale, both with ledger size, block size, block time, orphan rate and the creation of runaway chain fragmentation, which eventually, albeit expectantly brought our project to an irrevocable halt.

This is an extreme example and one which instilled many of the understanding of methods needed to comprehend the true nature of Bitcoin; its limitations, foibles, secrets and true power as an economic system. For the best part, 0-conf works very well for daily transaction needs as a cash system. Ten minutes is a perfect compromise as a settlement layer for high value purchases and most importantly, one that has shown in our own terranode testing program, the ability to scale Bitcoin to every person on the planet.

Yes, we have over 30,000 research and development hours looking very deeply into this, as it forms the greater part of our business model.

Having looked at Omni layer solutions we have found many issues with its data structure in terms of long term viability and scaling ability, mainly down to an overuse of op_return scripting and clunky data request pathways which are overly complex with large retrieval overheads and subsequently an unfavourable cost per byte. These are just some of the same issues affecting Ethereum right now.

Our token solutions are being deployed using Bitcoin Token, BitDB and BitQuery which are simple, logical, scalable and lightweight, providing us infinite possibilities to create our frameworks, platforms, services and APIs to allow others to build whatever they can imagine.

Asynx 2nd layer software solutions are to Bitcoin, what jQuery and WordPress are to Web Design. Think of us as a toolkit for building powerful Bitcoin powered applications.
