StakeCube in Numbers
This week has seen a wave of new optimism in the Crypto markets. It was likely prompted by the B-Word conference, where Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey and Cathie Wood discussed Bitcoin in a very positive light. Our numbers have again followed the prevailing trend, showing a mild improvement since last week. In particular mining revenue has grown very significantly, as total Bitcoin network hashpower sank below 100 Eh/s for the first time since April 2020.
- User Count: 105,499 +1.55%
- Pool Value: 589.8 BTC +2.15%
- Daily BTC Mined: 0.150 BTC +13.63%
- SCC Price: $0.76 +0%
- SCC Market Cap: $6,961,000 +0.97%
- Alexa Rank 18,328 -1204
Last weekend we had 13 teams compete for the fame and glory to be the first winners of the StakeCube E-Sports Rocket League event. The event was streamed through our official Twitch channel:
There you can also check out some clips from the matches. In total the event lasted more than 9 hours, with close to 400 live views. We want to thank again the Phore and Zenzo teams for helping us sponsor the event. A big shout-out to our casters as well, Derek, Kodiaq and Hyper.
These were the event’s winning teams, with Twitter handle and hashtag team name:

Github SCP Documentation Merged
As we announced last week, we merged all SCP documentation back into the main branch in our Github. You can find it here:
Developers have now easily available all the tools they need to integrate with SCP.
MineCube Miners in Maintenance
Seven of our StrongU Dash miners have a broken PSU and need to undergo repairs. Unfortunately the parts necessary to repair the miners are not available anywhere at the moment. We are looking for sources and hope to find them somewhere as soon as possible, but we can offer no ETA at the moment.
DogeCash Collateral Changed
DOGEC masternodes will from now on have a different collateral amount. They will continue to run with the collateral of 5000 DOGEC until block 1122000, when we will perform the update. Please note that as the new collateral is 15000, users need to provide the additional coins and re-deploy their masternodes to continue to earn rewards beyond the mentioned block target.
SCC Explorer Masternode ROI
We made a request to Jimwall, the developer in charge of https://scc.ccore.online/masternodes to fix the masternode ROI stat, which was not accurately represented. Within 24h he was able to fix this issue and the figure is now correct.
StakeCube Protocol Wallet News
We have introduced a new API module: IO. This module allows operators to read or write data directly to the blockchain, using any encoding or decoding they wish. The system is designed to suit all kinds of data, and thus opens the door to new DApps built on top of SCP and SCC. You can post messages, data, binary, encrypted data, timestamps, hashes, or anything else you can imagine, with everlasting data preservation.
As part of our efforts to improve SCP-2 staking, the minimum reward staking requirement is now 1 sat, or 0.00000001 of a token. This is a considerable reduction from the previous value of 0.001% of the supply. The new value will allow users to participate in staking, even when they have very small balances.
Full SCP API and Usage documentation is now ready, with English and German full-node installation guides, compliant with the latest API overhaul.
SCP full nodes now have a built-in troubleshooter and a massively overhauled bootup sequence, which scans for issues with the node and all of its configs. This system will warn the operator of certain issues and remain in “standby” mode until fixed. SCP will then automatically reload the configs and start-up normally.
Full node operators can now have granular control over their API system by disabling/enabling five built-in modules, or changing their API port. This is achieved using simple one-line config file entries.
The homepage has a new design, with many new features:
- SCP Network usage stats, including 24h transactions and user count.
- Token usage stats, showing the most popular tokens based on total on-chain activity.
- Recent transactions, which is a screen displaying all of the latest SCP activity across the whole network.
Additionally there is a new search bar, which can be used to quickly find any SCP tokens from the home page or any sub-page.
There are also some new improvements that allow SCPscan to perform and display better on mobile devices of all sizes. Check out all these changes here:
Users can now request a list of all their transactions directly from the platform instead of having to reach out to our support.
We will be offering two different formats to start with. The StakeCube format contains a list of all transactions made whereas the Koinly format aggregates staking transactions to one per day per coin and type. Koinly designed their format like this to make the files lighter and minimize costs by reducing the number of transactions in the file. You can access these files here:
Simply click on CSV Export and select the preferred format. CSV reports take longer the more transactions they contain. In general, they should be ready in a few minutes. However, to avoid causing problems to our system, if too many requests are logged at the same time, they will be queued and could take longer.
Wallet Maintenance News
We updated the following wallets:
Previous version: 220.127.116.11
New version: 18.104.22.168
This update didn’t require masternode restarts, but some had forked prior to the update and those did need to be restarted.
Previous version: 22.214.171.124
New version: 126.96.36.199
Previous version: 188.8.131.52
New version: 184.108.40.206
User action required! Due to the collateral change to 15000 DOGEC, all NodeCube masternodes will have to be destroyed from the user’s dashboard. If users want to setup a new masternode they will need to provide the additional coins for the collateral. Old masternodes will stop generating rewards. This update seems to have solved the issues that the wallet had been experiencing.
Previous version: 220.127.116.11
New version: 18.104.22.168
