Integration broker for P2P apps on BCH Chain
Alright guys, I apologize for all the shilling on this sub for this project, but it was suggested by the admin.
This flipstarter has 1 day left before it expires, and needs one last push to get it through.
CashSQL: the integration broker helps you get data out of (and put data into) the BCH chain through a nice and easy SQL database of your choosing. It's designed to help build P2P apps rapidly. Enveloping data transactions inside layer-1 BCH is tough. If apps could rely on a simple SQL DB, with community developed data-transformers, life is easier for all apps using those layer-2 protocols. This means more devs, more apps and more activity on BCH.
If this project makes sense to you, consider a PLEDGE NOW!

CashSQL Vision

DELIVERABLE SUMMARY

  • Full Blockchain Database: the entire BCH blockchain available as SQL database. Useful for chainalysis, data analytics, etc. This database can be optionally deployed by users.
  • Light-weight Database: lean and mean database for tracking user-specific blockchain data. Most applications will only need to use this.
  • DBMS support: SQL Server, MySQL/MariaDB and SQLite (has plug-n-play design, others can be added later).
  • Mempool Integration: JSON/XML/Web-Socket API for real-time event data.
  • Simplified Schema Design: blockchain data is extracted and processed into higher-level data abstractions that developers can easily use. For example, account balances, debits and credits for BCH and SLP addresses, confirmations for transactions, etc.
  • Extensible Schema: users can extend scheme with custom columns and tables that suit their applications.
  • Transformable Data: users can plug-n-play custom data-transformations that extract meaningful high-level data from compressed blockchain data.
  • Real-Time Capability: databases are maintained in real-time with minimal locking.
  • Send Capability: includes “outbound” tables for users to push out transactions onto the network. Includes send receipts and history tables.
  • High-performance: expertly-tuned database design for large and small deployments.
  • Enterprise-ready: Written in latest C#/.NET, a popular enterprise-class platform.
  • Cross-Platform: Target platform is .NET 5 which runs on Windows, Linux, macOS and Unix.
  • Simple GUI: an explorer-like GUI is shipped with the backend based on HTML5.
  • Open Source: Fully open-sourced under MIT license.
A prototype is currently available at http://blockchainsql.io.

WHO WE ARE

Sphere 10 Software (ABN: 39600596316) is an Australian based LLC led by Director and Chief Software Architect, Herman Schoenfeld. Herman has been involved in cryptocurrency since 2011, and was the "retrospective co-founder" of the PascalCoin cryptocurrency. Herman has appeared in commercial programming aired on Bloomberg and Fox Business News as well as radio broadcasts in the NYC area. Herman has been a long-time supporter of Bitcoin Cash and has always promoted it as the true, original Bitcoin as laid out in the Satoshi whitepaper. However, due to certain personalities dominant in BCH, Herman was de-motivated from participating until now. Since the BSV split and with the prospect of BCHN taking node leadership in November, Herman is very bullish on BCH and motivated to support BCH into the bright future and imminent explosive growth it was destined for. Sphere 10 Software will allocate 2 developers to work on CashSQL (one of them Herman). All the funds from this fund-raiser will be used for paying the time and material of development.

Underground churches, underground bars, underground payments

Just read about a speakeasy in NYC being shut down, no liquor license, nonetheless violating the mayor's order that (lawful) bars could only do takeout and delivery.
Then there's the Florida pastor arrested after refusing the county's lockdown orders, and holding service for hundreds of congregants:
There will be more and more of these "underground" services, especially in areas where doing so (even if it is just resuming what they did before) equals survival. Because these "underground" (i.e., "informal economy", "black market", "System D") businesses are unable to use the banks, they will gravitate towards bitcoin -- as both a store of value, and as a medium of exchange -- especially for payment that cannot be done locally, with cash.
This is not just going to be true in Nigeria and Venezuela (using an example of two countries where bitcoin already has gained the most significant levels of traction, on a per-capita basis), but in every country that continues heavy lockdown policies.
[Note: I'm not condoning nor supporting these (at least, not currently), I'm simply pointing out what is obvious.
Stay at home, until you have PPE (a filtering facepiece/mask and goggles, at a minimum).]

BTC — The BTC continues to oscillate slightly from yesterday to today and is currently hovering around $8,300. In the past 24 hours, the net inflow of BT funds is close to US$200 million, and the market inflow is gradually shrinking. BTC tried to keep going up after breaking through $8,500 yesterday, but failed to keep its volume steady at $8,600. It rebounded slightly after pulling back to $8,500 last night, but the overall risk of diversion remained high, with the focus on the second support around $8,400 below. In the medium-term trend, BTC has successfully broken through the bottom shock range, and the subsequent market continues to be bullish. Operational aspects, short-term should not catch up with high, investors who have not had time to enter the temporary patience to wait, withdrawal near the support level can be considered to continue to build warehouses.

My growing collection of info about NEO Vol. 2

It can be very time consuming to keep up to date on a single blockchain. If you just heard about NEO a few weeks ago it would be impossible catch up on past occurrences. I’m going to try and simplify the past, present and future as much as I can into one well thought-out post.
 
I made the first Volume around 6 weeks ago
https://www.reddit.com/CryptoCurrency/comments/75mul5/my_growing_collection_of_info_about_neo/
 
I felt it was time for an update since so much has happened.
If you want the up to date version in between Vol updates visit NEO and its located on the #3 top post of all time.

Ontology $ONT (Partnership with NEO)
Ontology Network (ONT) is a blockchain/distributed ledger network which combines distributed identity verification, data exchange, data collaboration, procedure protocols, communities, attestation, and various industry-specific modules. Together this builds the infrastructure for a peer-to-peer trust network which is cross-chain, cross-system, cross-industry, cross-application, and cross-device.
 
NEO will be the primary digital assets service provider for clearing and settlement on Ontology. There is no contract between Ontology and NEO now, though Ontology and NEO already have an established partnership. One thing on the roadmap is that in the future business scenarios on Ontology want to hold ICOs they will be able to on NEO.

Key notes from the White Paper

http://docs.neo.org/en-us/
 
Digital Assets
Digital assets are programmable assets that exist in the form of electronic data. With blockchain technology, the digitization of assets can be decentralized, trustful, traceable, highly transparent, and free of intermediaries.
 
Digital Identity
Digital identity refers to the identity information of individuals, organizations, and other entities that exist in electronic form.
Our verification of identity when issuing or using digital identities includes the use of facial features, fingerprint, voice, SMS and other multi-factor authentication methods.
 
Smart Contracts
The NeoContract smart contract system is the biggest feature of the seamless integration of the existing developer ecosystem. Developers do not need to learn a new programming language but use C#, Java and other mainstream programming languages in their familiar IDE environments (Visual Studio, Eclipse, etc.) for smart contract development, debugging and compilation. NEO's Universal Lightweight Virtual Machine, NeoVM, has the advantages of high certainty, high concurrency, and high scalability. The NeoContract smart contract system will allow millions of developers around the world to quickly carry out the development of smart contracts.
 
Economic Model
NEO has two native tokens, NEOand NeoGas NEO represents the right to manage the network. Management rights include voting for bookkeeping, NEO network parameter changes, and so on. The minimum unit of NEO is 1 and tokens cannot be subdivided. GAS is the fuel token for the realization of NEO network resource control. The NEO network charges for the operation and storage of tokens and smart contracts, thereby creating economic incentives for bookkeepers and preventing the abuse of resources. The minimum unit of GAS is 0.00000001.
 
Distribution Mechanism
NEO's 100 million tokens are divided into two portions. The first portion is 50 million tokens distributed proportionally to supporters of NEO during the crowdfunding. This portion has been distributed.
The second portion is 50 million NEO managed by the NEO Council to support NEO's long-term development, operation and maintenance and ecosystem. The NEO in this portion has a lockout period of 1 year and is unlocked only after October 16, 2017. This portion will NOT enter the exchanges and is only for long-term support of NEO projects. The plans for it are as below:
▪ 10 million tokens (10% total) will be used to motivate NEO developers and members of the NEO Council
▪ 10 million tokens (10% total) will be used to motivate developers in the NEO ecosystem
▪ 15 million tokens (15% total) will be used to cross-invest in other block-chain projects, which are owned by the NEO Council and are used only for NEO projects
▪ 15 million (15% total) will be retained as contingency
▪ The annual use of NEO in principle shall NOT exceed 15 million tokens
 
GAS distribution
GAS is generated with each new block. The initial total amount of GAS is zero. With the increasing rate of new block generation, the total limit of 100 million GAS will be achieved in about 22 years. The interval between each block is about 15-20 seconds, and 2 million blocks are generated in about one year. According to this release curve, 16% of the GAS will be created in the first year, 52% of the GAS will be created in the first four years, and 80% of the GAS will be created in the first 12 years. GAS will be distributed proportionally in accordance with the NEO holding ratio, recorded in the corresponding addresses. NEO holders can initiate a claim transaction at any time and claim these GAS tokens at their holding addresses.
 
Consensus mechanism: dBFT
The dBFT is called the Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerant, a Byzantine fault-tolerant consensus mechanism that enables large-scale participation in consensus through proxy voting. The holder of the NEO token can, by voting, pick the bookkeeper it supports. The selected group of bookkeepers, through BFT algorithm, reach a consensus and generate new blocks. Voting in the NEO network continues in real time, rather than in accordance with a fixed term.
 
Cross-chain assets exchange agreement
NeoX has been extended on existing double-stranded atomic assets exchange protocols to allow multiple participants to exchange assets across different chains and to ensure that all steps in the entire transaction process succeed or fail together. In order to achieve this function, we need to use NeoContract function to create a contract account for each participant. If other blockchains are not compatible with NeoContract, they can be compatible with NeoX as long as they can provide simple smart contract functionality.
 
Cross-chain distributed transaction protocol
Cross-chain distributed transactions mean that multiple steps of a transaction are scattered across different blockchains and that the consistency of the entire transaction is ensured. This is an extension of cross-chain assets exchange, extending the behavior of assets exchange into arbitrary behavior. In layman's terms, NeoX makes it possible for cross-chain smart contracts where a smart contract can perform different parts on multiple chains, either succeeding or reverting as a whole. This gives excellent possibilities for cross-chain collaborations and we are exploring cross-chain smart contract application scenarios.
 
Distributed Storage Protocol: NeoFS
NeoFS is a distributed storage protocol that utilizes Distributed Hash Table technology. NeoFS indexes the data through file content (Hash) rather than file path (URI). Large files will be divided into fixed-size data blocks that are distributed and stored in many different nodes
 
Anti-quantum cryptography mechanism: NeoQS
The emergence of quantum computers poses a major challenge to RSA and ECC-based cryptographic mechanisms. Quantum computers can solve the large number of decomposition problems (which RSA relies on) and the elliptic curve discrete logarithm (which ECC relies on) in a very short time. NeoQS (Quantum Safe) is a lattice-based cryptographic mechanism.
 

Reasons for choosing dBFT over PoW and PoS

 
With the phenomenal success of Bitcoin and its increasing mainstream adoption, the project’s unbounded appetite for energy grew accordingly. Today, the average Bitcoin transaction costs as much energy as powering 9.3 average American homes for 1 day.
https://digiconomist.net/bitcoin-energy-consumption#assumptions
This mind boggling amount of energy is not, as it is commonly believed, being wasted. It is put to good use: securing the Bitcoin network and rendering attacks on it infeasible. However, the cost of this security mechanism and its implications for an increasingly warming and resource hungry planet led almost the entire crypto industry to the understanding that an alternative has to be found, at least if we’re interested in seeing blockchain technology gaining overwhelming mainstream adoption.
The most popular alternative to PoW, used by most alternative cryptocurrency systems, is called Proof-of-Stake, or PoS. PoS is highly promising in the sense that it doesn’t require blockchain nodes to perform arduous, and otherwise useless, cryptographic tasks in order to render potential attacks costly and infeasible. Hence, this algorithm cuts the power requirements of PoS blockchains down to sane and manageable amounts, allowing them to be more scalable without guzzling up the planet's energy reserves.
As the name suggests, instead of requiring proof of cryptographic work, PoS requires blockchain nodes to proof stake in the currency itself. This means that in order for a blockchain node to be eligible for a verification reward, the node has to hold a certain amount of currency in the wallet associated with it. This way, in order to execute an attack, a malevolent node would have to acquire the majority of the existing coin supply, rendering attacks not only costly but also meaningless, since the attackers would primarily harm themselves.
PoS, as well as PoW, simply cause the blockchain to fork into two alternative versions if for some reason consensus breaks. In fact, most blockchains fork most of the time, only to converge back to a single source of truth a short while afterwards.
By many crypto enthusiasts, this obvious bug is very often regarded as a feature, allowing several versions of the truth to survive and compete for public adoption until a resolution is generated. This sounds nice in theory, but if we want to see blockchain technology seriously disrupt and/or augment the financial sector, this ever lurking possibility of the blockchain splitting into two alternative versions cannot be tolerated.
Furthermore, even the fastest PoS blockchains out there can accomodate a few hundred transactions per second, compare that to Visa’s 56,000 tx/s and the need for an alternative becomes clear as day.
A blockchain securing global stock markets does not have the privilege to fork into two alternative versions and just sit and wait it out until the market (or what’s left of it) declares a winner. What belongs to whom should be engraved in an immutable record, functioning as a single source of truth with no glitches permitted.
After investigating and studying the crypto industry and blockchain technologies for several years, we came to the conclusion that the delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance alternative (or dBFT) is best suited for such a system. It provides swift transaction verification times, de-incentivises most attack vectors and upholds a single blockchain version with no risk of forks or alternative blockchain records emerging - regardless of how much computing power, or coins an attacker possesses.
The term Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) derives its name from the Byzantine Generals problem in Game Theory and Computer Science, describing the problematic nature of achieving consensus in a distributed system with suboptimal communication between agents which do not necessarily trust each other.
The BFT algorithm arranges the relationship between blockchain nodes in such a way that the network becomes as good as resilient to the Byzantine Generals problem, and allows the system to remain consensus even if some nodes bare malicious intentions or simply malfunction.
To achieve this, Antshare’s version of the delegated BFT (or dBFT) algorithm acknowledges two kinds of players in the blockchain space: professional node operators, called bookkeeping nodes, who run nodes as a source of income, and users who are interested in accessing blockchain advantages. Theoretically, this differentiation does not exist in PoW and most PoS environments, practically, however, most Bitcoin users do not operate miners, which are mostly located in specialized venues run by professionals. At Antshares we understand the importance of this naturally occurring division of labor and use it to provide better security for our blockchain platform.
Accordingly, block verification is achieved through a consensus game held between specialized bookkeeping nodes, which are appointed by ordinary nodes through a form of delegated voting process. In every verification round one of the bookkeeping nodes is pseudo-randomly appointed to broadcast its version of the blockchain to the rest of the network. If ⅔ of the remaining nodes agree with this version, consensus is secured and the blockchain marches on. If less than ⅔ of the network agrees, a different node is appointed to broadcast its version of the truth to the rest of the system, and so forth until consensus is established.
In this way, successful system attacks are almost impossible to execute unless the overwhelming majority of the network is interested in committing financial suicide. Additionally, the system is fork proof, and at every given moment only one version of the truth exists. Without complicated cryptographic puzzles to solve, nodes operate much faster and are able to compete with centralized transaction methods.

OnChain

 
It is important to note the technical difference between Onchain and NEO. Onchain is a private VC-backed company with over 40 employees. NEO is a public platform with different community-led groups contributing to this public project. There exists NEO council comprised of the original NEO creators, employees from Onchain, full time NEO council members and there is also the first Western based group called City of Zion.
Onchain, a Shanghai-based blockchain R&D company, first started developing Antshares in February of 2014 which will eventually become the foundation of DNA. Onchain was founded by CEO Da HongFei and CTO Erik Zhang in response to the attention from private companies garnered by the development of Antshares, China’s first public blockchain. In contrast to the weeks-old start-ups launching ICOs that is happening currently in the blockchain world, it took them 22 long months of R&D to even begin providing services to their first customers. Finally, in April 2016, the first whitepaper on consensus protocol from China was born — the dBFT (delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance) protocol.
2016 was a busy year for Onchain and they really picked up the pace that year. Other than continuing the development of Antshares, brushing shoulders with Fortune 500 companies, Onchain became the first Chinese blockchain company to join Hyperledger — an open source blockchain project started by the Linux Foundation specifically focusing on the development of private and consortium chains for businesses.
In June of 2016, during the first of many future partnerships with Microsoft China, Onchain founded Legal Chain specifically targeting the inadequacies of the digital applications within the legal system. In 2005, (Digital Signature Act) was passed into national law which permitted an effective digital signatures to gain the same legal rights as a real signature.
In company with Microsoft China, they are also aiming to integrate the technology with Microsoft’s face and voice recognition API function to kick start this digital revolution within the legal system. At the same time, a partnership was formed with FaDaDa, a third-party platform for electronic contracts that has processed over 27 million contracts to date, to provide secure evidence storage with DNA. If that’s not enough, they were also voted as KPMG’s top 50 Fintech Company in China and established a relationship with the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry which led to the recent tour to Japan. Finally, at the end of 2016 they announced a partnership with Alibaba to provide attested email service for Ali Cloud with Legal Chain where it provides a proof-of-existence for a blockchain-powered email evidence repository for enterprise-level use.
Fosun Group, China’s largest private conglomerate, have recently invested into Onchain in order to apply DNA across all of its businesses. Currently, Fosun International has a market cap of 102.98 billion dollars on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and that is only its international branch.
The role of Onchain so far is reminiscent of Ethereum’s EEA in addition to a stronger emphasis of governmental cooperation. Onchain has identified the shortcomings of present laser focus of hype on public platforms such as NEO and Ethereum and addressing that with DNA. DNA envisions a future where a network of assorted, specifically designed blockchains serving private enterprises, consortiums, government and the public communicating with each other forming an interconnected blockchain network.
This is the goal of DNA — infiltrating every little inefficient niche that had no better alternatives before the invention of blockchain. What is especially critical to remember during this explosive time of hype driven partly by the obscene degree of greed is that not every little niche that blockchain can fill will be holding its own little ICO. Some of those efficiencies gained will simply be consumed by companies privately or by public systems such as the legal system.

Networks proves itself with the first ICO

 
ICOs, on other platforms such as Ethereum, often resulted in a sluggish network and transaction delays. While NEO’s dBFT consensus algorithm is designed to achieve consensus with higher efficency and greater network throughputt, no amount of theoretical calculations can simulate the reality of real-life conditions.
 

Key Observations

 
Smart Contract Invocations:
A total of 13,966 smart contracts invocations were executed on the NEO network over this time period, of which, nearly all called the RPX smart contract method mintTokens. A total of 543,348,500 RPX tokens were successfully minted and transferred to user accounts, totalling 10,097 smart contract executions.
 
Refunded Invocations:
A total of 4182 refund events were triggered by the smart contract method mintTokens. (Note: RPX has stated that these refunds will be processed within the next two weeks.)
 
Crowdsale Statistics:
A successful mintTokens execution used around 1043 VM operations, while an execution that resulted in a refund used 809 VM operations. Within the hour and six minutes that the token sale was active, a total of 12,296,409 VM operations were executed. A total of 9,575 unique addresses participated in the RPX ICO. Half of these, approximately 4,800 unique addresses, participated through CoZ’s Neon wallet. The top 3 blocks with the most transactions were block 1445025 (3,242 transactions), block 1444902 (2,951 transactions), and block 1444903 (1609 transactions).
 
Conclusion on Network Performance
At the moment, the consensus nodes for the NEO network are operated by the NEO Council in China. By Q1 2018, NEO Council aims to control less than two-thirds of the consensus nodes.
We are pleased to note that the NEO network continuted to operate efficiently with minimal network impact, even under extreme network events. Block generation time initially slowed down to 3 minutes to process the largest block, but quickly recovered to approximately 25 seconds. Throughout the entire RPX ICO, consensus nodes were able to achieve consensus and propagate new block transactions to the rest of the network. In closing, while we consider this performance to be excellent, NEO Council and City of Zion areworking closely together on upgrades, that will increase the throughputs of the NEO network.

"There is no direct cooperation between Alibaba and NEO/Onchain, other than their mailbox service is using Law Chain to provide attested email service. In terms of Microsoft, yes we have cooperation with Microsoft China because NEO is built with C# and .NET Core, and NeoContract is the first in the world to support writing smart contract with C#"

"We have pretty good communication with government, with regulators. They don't have any negative impression with NEO and they like our technology and the way we deal with things. Regulation is not an issue for us"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpUdTIQdjVE&feature=youtu.be&t=1m16s
 
“Before they started cleaning up the market, I was asked for information and suggestions” “I do not expect the government to call me in the short-term and say, ‘Let’s use NEO as the blockchain technology infrastructure of China.’ But in the medium term? Why not? I think it’s possible.”

Upcoming Roadmap

 
Decentralization of consensus nodes
▪ P2P Network optimization – Network optimizations to ensure fast block generation after decentralization.
▪ Voting Algorithm Optimization – Adjustments in voting algorithm to prevent identified attack vectors.
▪ Candidate List Website – Published list of candidates so that voters know who they are voting for.
▪ NEO Council Consensus Node < 2/3 – NEO Council shall operate less than two thirds of consensus nodes by the end of quarter 1, 2018.
 
Our original plan was to start decentralize in Q1 2018. We are however growing faster than expected and cannot accept the risk with being as centralized as we currently are. The conclusion is that we re-prioritize and start the process of decentralizing today. We believe that NEO community groups and exchanges will be suitable to run consensus nodes; community groups already know the technology, and exchanges are already running full nodes with high uptime and monitoring. We welcome interested parties to reach out to us on [email protected]. A NEP to encourage voting will be presented in the coming weeks.
https://neo.org/blog/Details/3016
 
Universal Data Format for Wallet/Node Prog.
▪ NEP2 – Private Key Encryption/Decryption (2017Q4) - Method for encrypting and encoding a passphrase-protected private key.
▪ NEP3 – Universal Data Format (2017Q4) – Standard data format to allow easier wallet and node programming.
https://neo.org/en-us/blog/details/65
 
Promotion/Ecosystem
▪ Globally Legal Token-raising Framework (2017Q4) – Following government interest to regulate ICO’s, NEO will complete a framework to raise tokens legally in all major markets by the end of 2017.
▪ NEO DevCon 1 (2017Q4) – First NEO Development Conference! More details at later date.
▪ CoZ Funding (2017Q4) – Continuous funding plan for CoZ covering next 5 years.

Key notes from the White Paper

http://docs.neo.org/en-us/
 
Digital Assets
Digital assets are programmable assets that exist in the form of electronic data. With blockchain technology, the digitization of assets can be decentralized, trustful, traceable, highly transparent, and free of intermediaries.
 
Digital Identity
Digital identity refers to the identity information of individuals, organizations, and other entities that exist in electronic form.
Our verification of identity when issuing or using digital identities includes the use of facial features, fingerprint, voice, SMS and other multi-factor authentication methods.
 
Smart Contracts
The NeoContract smart contract system is the biggest feature of the seamless integration of the existing developer ecosystem. Developers do not need to learn a new programming language but use C#, Java and other mainstream programming languages in their familiar IDE environments (Visual Studio, Eclipse, etc.) for smart contract development, debugging and compilation. NEO's Universal Lightweight Virtual Machine, NeoVM, has the advantages of high certainty, high concurrency, and high scalability. The NeoContract smart contract system will allow millions of developers around the world to quickly carry out the development of smart contracts.
 
Economic Model
NEO has two native tokens, NEOand NeoGas NEO represents the right to manage the network. Management rights include voting for bookkeeping, NEO network parameter changes, and so on. The minimum unit of NEO is 1 and tokens cannot be subdivided. GAS is the fuel token for the realization of NEO network resource control. The NEO network charges for the operation and storage of tokens and smart contracts, thereby creating economic incentives for bookkeepers and preventing the abuse of resources. The minimum unit of GAS is 0.00000001.
 
Distribution Mechanism
NEO's 100 million tokens are divided into two portions. The first portion is 50 million tokens distributed proportionally to supporters of NEO during the crowdfunding. This portion has been distributed.
The second portion is 50 million NEO managed by the NEO Council to support NEO's long-term development, operation and maintenance and ecosystem. The NEO in this portion has a lockout period of 1 year and is unlocked only after October 16, 2017. This portion will NOT enter the exchanges and is only for long-term support of NEO projects. The plans for it are as below:
▪ 10 million tokens (10% total) will be used to motivate NEO developers and members of the NEO Council
▪ 10 million tokens (10% total) will be used to motivate developers in the NEO ecosystem
▪ 15 million tokens (15% total) will be used to cross-invest in other block-chain projects, which are owned by the NEO Council and are used only for NEO projects
▪ 15 million (15% total) will be retained as contingency
▪ The annual use of NEO in principle shall NOT exceed 15 million tokens
 
GAS distribution
GAS is generated with each new block. The initial total amount of GAS is zero. With the increasing rate of new block generation, the total limit of 100 million GAS will be achieved in about 22 years. The interval between each block is about 15-20 seconds, and 2 million blocks are generated in about one year. According to this release curve, 16% of the GAS will be created in the first year, 52% of the GAS will be created in the first four years, and 80% of the GAS will be created in the first 12 years. GAS will be distributed proportionally in accordance with the NEO holding ratio, recorded in the corresponding addresses. NEO holders can initiate a claim transaction at any time and claim these GAS tokens at their holding addresses.
 
Consensus mechanism: dBFT
The dBFT is called the Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerant, a Byzantine fault-tolerant consensus mechanism that enables large-scale participation in consensus through proxy voting. The holder of the NEO token can, by voting, pick the bookkeeper it supports. The selected group of bookkeepers, through BFT algorithm, reach a consensus and generate new blocks. Voting in the NEO network continues in real time, rather than in accordance with a fixed term.
 
Cross-chain assets exchange agreement
NeoX has been extended on existing double-stranded atomic assets exchange protocols to allow multiple participants to exchange assets across different chains and to ensure that all steps in the entire transaction process succeed or fail together. In order to achieve this function, we need to use NeoContract function to create a contract account for each participant. If other blockchains are not compatible with NeoContract, they can be compatible with NeoX as long as they can provide simple smart contract functionality.
 
Cross-chain distributed transaction protocol
Cross-chain distributed transactions mean that multiple steps of a transaction are scattered across different blockchains and that the consistency of the entire transaction is ensured. This is an extension of cross-chain assets exchange, extending the behavior of assets exchange into arbitrary behavior. In layman's terms, NeoX makes it possible for cross-chain smart contracts where a smart contract can perform different parts on multiple chains, either succeeding or reverting as a whole. This gives excellent possibilities for cross-chain collaborations and we are exploring cross-chain smart contract application scenarios.
 
Distributed Storage Protocol: NeoFS
NeoFS is a distributed storage protocol that utilizes Distributed Hash Table technology. NeoFS indexes the data through file content (Hash) rather than file path (URI). Large files will be divided into fixed-size data blocks that are distributed and stored in many different nodes
 
Anti-quantum cryptography mechanism: NeoQS
The emergence of quantum computers poses a major challenge to RSA and ECC-based cryptographic mechanisms. Quantum computers can solve the large number of decomposition problems (which RSA relies on) and the elliptic curve discrete logarithm (which ECC relies on) in a very short time. NeoQS (Quantum Safe) is a lattice-based cryptographic mechanism.
 

Reasons for choosing dBFT over PoW and PoS

 
With the phenomenal success of Bitcoin and its increasing mainstream adoption, the project’s unbounded appetite for energy grew accordingly. Today, the average Bitcoin transaction costs as much energy as powering 9.3 average American homes for 1 day.
https://digiconomist.net/bitcoin-energy-consumption#assumptions
This mind boggling amount of energy is not, as it is commonly believed, being wasted. It is put to good use: securing the Bitcoin network and rendering attacks on it infeasible. However, the cost of this security mechanism and its implications for an increasingly warming and resource hungry planet led almost the entire crypto industry to the understanding that an alternative has to be found, at least if we’re interested in seeing blockchain technology gaining overwhelming mainstream adoption.
The most popular alternative to PoW, used by most alternative cryptocurrency systems, is called Proof-of-Stake, or PoS. PoS is highly promising in the sense that it doesn’t require blockchain nodes to perform arduous, and otherwise useless, cryptographic tasks in order to render potential attacks costly and infeasible. Hence, this algorithm cuts the power requirements of PoS blockchains down to sane and manageable amounts, allowing them to be more scalable without guzzling up the planet's energy reserves.
As the name suggests, instead of requiring proof of cryptographic work, PoS requires blockchain nodes to proof stake in the currency itself. This means that in order for a blockchain node to be eligible for a verification reward, the node has to hold a certain amount of currency in the wallet associated with it. This way, in order to execute an attack, a malevolent node would have to acquire the majority of the existing coin supply, rendering attacks not only costly but also meaningless, since the attackers would primarily harm themselves.
PoS, as well as PoW, simply cause the blockchain to fork into two alternative versions if for some reason consensus breaks. In fact, most blockchains fork most of the time, only to converge back to a single source of truth a short while afterwards.
By many crypto enthusiasts, this obvious bug is very often regarded as a feature, allowing several versions of the truth to survive and compete for public adoption until a resolution is generated. This sounds nice in theory, but if we want to see blockchain technology seriously disrupt and/or augment the financial sector, this ever lurking possibility of the blockchain splitting into two alternative versions cannot be tolerated.
Furthermore, even the fastest PoS blockchains out there can accomodate a few hundred transactions per second, compare that to Visa’s 56,000 tx/s and the need for an alternative becomes clear as day.
A blockchain securing global stock markets does not have the privilege to fork into two alternative versions and just sit and wait it out until the market (or what’s left of it) declares a winner. What belongs to whom should be engraved in an immutable record, functioning as a single source of truth with no glitches permitted.
After investigating and studying the crypto industry and blockchain technologies for several years, we came to the conclusion that the delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance alternative (or dBFT) is best suited for such a system. It provides swift transaction verification times, de-incentivises most attack vectors and upholds a single blockchain version with no risk of forks or alternative blockchain records emerging - regardless of how much computing power, or coins an attacker possesses.
The term Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) derives its name from the Byzantine Generals problem in Game Theory and Computer Science, describing the problematic nature of achieving consensus in a distributed system with suboptimal communication between agents which do not necessarily trust each other.
The BFT algorithm arranges the relationship between blockchain nodes in such a way that the network becomes as good as resilient to the Byzantine Generals problem, and allows the system to remain consensus even if some nodes bare malicious intentions or simply malfunction.
To achieve this, Antshare’s version of the delegated BFT (or dBFT) algorithm acknowledges two kinds of players in the blockchain space: professional node operators, called bookkeeping nodes, who run nodes as a source of income, and users who are interested in accessing blockchain advantages. Theoretically, this differentiation does not exist in PoW and most PoS environments, practically, however, most Bitcoin users do not operate miners, which are mostly located in specialized venues run by professionals. At Antshares we understand the importance of this naturally occurring division of labor and use it to provide better security for our blockchain platform.
Accordingly, block verification is achieved through a consensus game held between specialized bookkeeping nodes, which are appointed by ordinary nodes through a form of delegated voting process. In every verification round one of the bookkeeping nodes is pseudo-randomly appointed to broadcast its version of the blockchain to the rest of the network. If ⅔ of the remaining nodes agree with this version, consensus is secured and the blockchain marches on. If less than ⅔ of the network agrees, a different node is appointed to broadcast its version of the truth to the rest of the system, and so forth until consensus is established.
In this way, successful system attacks are almost impossible to execute unless the overwhelming majority of the network is interested in committing financial suicide. Additionally, the system is fork proof, and at every given moment only one version of the truth exists. Without complicated cryptographic puzzles to solve, nodes operate much faster and are able to compete with centralized transaction methods.

OnChain

 
It is important to note the technical difference between Onchain and NEO. Onchain is a private VC-backed company with over 40 employees. NEO is a public platform with different community-led groups contributing to this public project. There exists NEO council comprised of the original NEO creators, employees from Onchain, full time NEO council members and there is also the first Western based group called City of Zion.
Onchain, a Shanghai-based blockchain R&D company, first started developing Antshares in February of 2014 which will eventually become the foundation of DNA. Onchain was founded by CEO Da HongFei and CTO Erik Zhang in response to the attention from private companies garnered by the development of Antshares, China’s first public blockchain. In contrast to the weeks-old start-ups launching ICOs that is happening currently in the blockchain world, it took them 22 long months of R&D to even begin providing services to their first customers. Finally, in April 2016, the first whitepaper on consensus protocol from China was born — the dBFT (delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance) protocol.
2016 was a busy year for Onchain and they really picked up the pace that year. Other than continuing the development of Antshares, brushing shoulders with Fortune 500 companies, Onchain became the first Chinese blockchain company to join Hyperledger — an open source blockchain project started by the Linux Foundation specifically focusing on the development of private and consortium chains for businesses.
In June of 2016, during the first of many future partnerships with Microsoft China, Onchain founded Legal Chain specifically targeting the inadequacies of the digital applications within the legal system. In 2005, (Digital Signature Act) was passed into national law which permitted an effective digital signatures to gain the same legal rights as a real signature.
In company with Microsoft China, they are also aiming to integrate the technology with Microsoft’s face and voice recognition API function to kick start this digital revolution within the legal system. At the same time, a partnership was formed with FaDaDa, a third-party platform for electronic contracts that has processed over 27 million contracts to date, to provide secure evidence storage with DNA. If that’s not enough, they were also voted as KPMG’s top 50 Fintech Company in China and established a relationship with the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry which led to the recent tour to Japan. Finally, at the end of 2016 they announced a partnership with Alibaba to provide attested email service for Ali Cloud with Legal Chain where it provides a proof-of-existence for a blockchain-powered email evidence repository for enterprise-level use.
Fosun Group, China’s largest private conglomerate, have recently invested into Onchain in order to apply DNA across all of its businesses. Currently, Fosun International has a market cap of 102.98 billion dollars on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and that is only its international branch.
The role of Onchain so far is reminiscent of Ethereum’s EEA in addition to a stronger emphasis of governmental cooperation. Onchain has identified the shortcomings of present laser focus of hype on public platforms such as NEO and Ethereum and addressing that with DNA. DNA envisions a future where a network of assorted, specifically designed blockchains serving private enterprises, consortiums, government and the public communicating with each other forming an interconnected blockchain network.
This is the goal of DNA — infiltrating every little inefficient niche that had no better alternatives before the invention of blockchain. What is especially critical to remember during this explosive time of hype driven partly by the obscene degree of greed is that not every little niche that blockchain can fill will be holding its own little ICO. Some of those efficiencies gained will simply be consumed by companies privately or by public systems such as the legal system.

Networks proves itself with the first ICO

 
ICOs, on other platforms such as Ethereum, often resulted in a sluggish network and transaction delays. While NEO’s dBFT consensus algorithm is designed to achieve consensus with higher efficency and greater network throughputt, no amount of theoretical calculations can simulate the reality of real-life conditions.
 

Key Observations

 
Smart Contract Invocations:
A total of 13,966 smart contracts invocations were executed on the NEO network over this time period, of which, nearly all called the RPX smart contract method mintTokens. A total of 543,348,500 RPX tokens were successfully minted and transferred to user accounts, totalling 10,097 smart contract executions.
 
Refunded Invocations:
A total of 4182 refund events were triggered by the smart contract method mintTokens. (Note: RPX has stated that these refunds will be processed within the next two weeks.)
 
Crowdsale Statistics:
A successful mintTokens execution used around 1043 VM operations, while an execution that resulted in a refund used 809 VM operations. Within the hour and six minutes that the token sale was active, a total of 12,296,409 VM operations were executed. A total of 9,575 unique addresses participated in the RPX ICO. Half of these, approximately 4,800 unique addresses, participated through CoZ’s Neon wallet. The top 3 blocks with the most transactions were block 1445025 (3,242 transactions), block 1444902 (2,951 transactions), and block 1444903 (1609 transactions).
 
Conclusion on Network Performance
At the moment, the consensus nodes for the NEO network are operated by the NEO Council in China. By Q1 2018, NEO Council aims to control less than two-thirds of the consensus nodes.
We are pleased to note that the NEO network continuted to operate efficiently with minimal network impact, even under extreme network events. Block generation time initially slowed down to 3 minutes to process the largest block, but quickly recovered to approximately 25 seconds. Throughout the entire RPX ICO, consensus nodes were able to achieve consensus and propagate new block transactions to the rest of the network. In closing, while we consider this performance to be excellent, NEO Council and City of Zion areworking closely together on upgrades, that will increase the throughputs of the NEO network.

Upcoming Roadmap

 
Decentralization of consensus nodes
▪ P2P Network optimization – Network optimizations to ensure fast block generation after decentralization.
▪ Voting Algorithm Optimization – Adjustments in voting algorithm to prevent identified attack vectors.
▪ Candidate List Website – Published list of candidates so that voters know who they are voting for.
▪ NEO Council Consensus Node < 2/3 – NEO Council shall operate less than two thirds of consensus nodes by the end of quarter 1, 2018.
 
Our original plan was to start decentralize in Q1 2018. We are however growing faster than expected and cannot accept the risk with being as centralized as we currently are. The conclusion is that we re-prioritize and start the process of decentralizing today. We believe that NEO community groups and exchanges will be suitable to run consensus nodes; community groups already know the technology, and exchanges are already running full nodes with high uptime and monitoring. We welcome interested parties to reach out to us on [email protected]. A NEP to encourage voting will be presented in the coming weeks.

Universal Data Format for Wallet/Node Prog.
▪ NEP2 – Private Key Encryption/Decryption (2017Q4) - Method for encrypting and encoding a passphrase-protected private key.
▪ NEP3 – Universal Data Format (2017Q4) – Standard data format to allow easier wallet and node programming.
https://neo.org/en-us/blog/details/65
 
Promotion/Ecosystem
▪ Globally Legal Token-raising Framework (2017Q4) – Following government interest to regulate ICO’s, NEO will complete a framework to raise tokens legally in all major markets by the end of 2017.
▪ NEO DevCon 1 (2017Q4) – First NEO Development Conference! More details at later date.
▪ CoZ Funding (2017Q4) – Continuous funding plan for CoZ covering next 5 years.

Guide to Buying Modafinil in Australia Legally: What You Need to Know.

Yes, it is a real shame Modafinil Cat closed (and also now Afinil Express, ModUp & DuckDose!), they were a reputable and reliable Modafinil seller! Our current top recommended seller (\Updated October 2019\**) is BuyModa.
This company has been vetted by us and has MANY positive reviews and feedback from our community regarding secure payment options, free shipping, successful & discreet delivery, & more, particularly for countries like Australia. Also great is they offer a guarantee to reship your order, or full money back refund, if there are any issues with shipping, packages held up at customs (rare), lost packages, etc:
BuyModa
BuyModa is currently the #1 most visited Modafinil pharmacy online according to Alexa. We only work with ISO certified pharmaceutical companies to ensure you receive the highest-quality medicines in the world. We have certified the authenticity of our medication with both SUN Pharma and HAB pharmaceuticals. These dedicated relationships allow BuyModa to deliver world-class quality products at discounted prices.
Your orders are monitored automatically by Aftership, and if there is ever an issue with your order, we’ll know about it quickly. If an order does not make it along its intended path we will ship you a new package within 24 hours. Your orders are 100% guaranteed.

Pretty sure Modafinil Cat also own Afinilexpress or are affiliated or some type of relationship. If you go to Reddit and search for ModUP you will see a few complaints about fraudulent CC charges, however it is only a small % and it appears the transactions are for random things like pet food from China, suggesting they or whoever they use for payments was hacked, rather than fraudulent activity by Modup themselves. Still worrying asI have ordered from them many times.

If you’re curious about how to buy Modafinil in Australia, you’ve come to the right place.
In this comprehensive guide, I’ll break down everything you need to know about getting your hands on the world’s most popular smart drug while living down under.

But here’s the gist of it…

While the nootropic may be technically seem as prescription-only in Australia, you can easily and legally buy Modafinil online – it doesn’t matter if you have a doctor’s prescription or not.

While I’m not from Australia, I know the smart drug game inside and out. I’ve been using nootropics for nearly half a decade now. I know which online pharmacies sell legit nootropics and which ones will send you bunk. My only goal is to get you the best nootropics in the world without an issue.

So, I’ll tell you how to get Modafinil in Australia without hassle. It’s pretty easy these days. You don’t even need a prescription to do it.

This guide is long and detailed to ensure I don’t leave out anything for those curious about Australia and Modafinil.

As always, I must hit y’all with a quick disclaimer before we begin…

What is Modafinil?

Before we dive too deep into how to buy Modafinil in Australia, let’s discuss what the smart drug is and why so many people love it.
As the world’s most popular smart drug, Modafinil has gained famed as the premier cognitive enhancer on the market.
Most people, including many Australians, find Modafinil offers benefits like:
Overall, Modafinil makes you feel like you can accomplish anything and everything you want – while you’re on it.
It’s not the “Limitless” pill, but it’s pretty darn close.
Originally, Modafinil was developed as a pharmaceutical drug under the name Provigil. Created in France during the late 1980s, the drug quickly rose to popularity as doctors began prescribing it for common ailments like (Source):
In the late 1990s, Provigil made its way to the United States. And before you knew it, Provigil was being used for off-the-label uses.
Grad students and CEOs in major cities like NYC and Boston quickly figured out that Modafinil gave them a competitive advantage over the competition.
These hustlers could pop 200 mg of Modafinil and focus for 12+ or pull an all-nighter without any issue.
The smart drug craze had officially begun, and Modafinil was at the forefront of it!
Things haven’t slowed down since then. It didn’t take long for Modafinil to surpass Adderall as the world’s most popular study drug, either.
Now people are looking to get their hands on the smart drug from all around the world. There’s a reason you’re curious about how to buy Modafinil in Australia.
Why?
Because Modafinil just works, mate.

Is Modafinil Legal in Australia?

Now, I’m no lawyer. Nor am I a legal scholar. So, this section about the legalities of Modafinil in Australia should not be construed as anything but hyperbole. This is NOT advice.
Is Modafinil legal in Australia?
Yes and no. Honestly, it’s a grey area.
Here’s the simplest way to break things down:
If you have narcolepsy or severe sleep apnea, your Australian doctor can legally prescribe you brand name Modafinil – generally Modavigil, as Provigil in Australia isn’t that common.
With this prescription, you can then go to a pharmacy in Australia and legally purchase Modafinil over-the-counter in the country with that prescription.
For those of us unable to get a prescription for Provigil in Australia, buying from a pharmacy is technically illegal.
It’s also impossible.
Why? Because no Australian pharmacist is risking their career to sell you pharmaceutical-grade smart drugs under-the-counter.
TL DR:
If you want to buy Modafinil in Australia, you’ll need to get a prescription from a local doctor for a commonly prescribed ailment. Then go to the pharmacy. This is the laws regarding Modafinil in the country.
However, there’s a little bit more than meets the eye here.
The laws and legalities surrounding Modafinil in Australia and how to get your hands on it require a little due diligence. Which is why I need to discuss…
P.S: I will be discussing the legalities of shipping Modafinil to Australia below…but you needn’t be worried there.

Drug Schedules in Australia

Australia drug scheduling laws come into play when talking Provigil in Australia.
In the country, pharmaceutical and street drugs are classified through the Therapeutic Goods Act, or TGA. The drugs are classified in groups 1-10 based on how dangerous they and the potential for abuse.
According to the TGA, the world’s most popular smart drug is considered a schedule 4 medication. As such, there are some limitations when buying Modafinil in the country.
Here’s a brief breakdown of drug schedules in Australia:
It should be clear by now, but if it’s not…
Drug scheduling in Australia is a complex matter.
For example, let’s look at Modafinil.
Modafinil is a schedule 4 drug in Australia, as the government seems to think that Modafinil offers some potential for abuse and addiction.
While seemingly true in theory due to the active mechanisms in Modafinil, the AU government may be reaching when considering Modafinil as an addictive substance.
There have been very few Provigil addiction cases ever reported or recorded. For example, here’s one study talking about a rare case of Modafinil dependence.
The smart drug simply isn’t addictive in a manner most individuals use the word.
You can take Modafinil multiple times a week without ever feeling a Modafinil “craving” or “withdraw” before or after.
Still, Modafinil is a schedule 4 drug in Australia…and that won’t be changing for sometime.

How to Get a Modafinil Prescription in Australia

Australia is a decidedly developed nation.
This shouldn’t come as any surprise.
As such, the sale and consumption of pharmaceutical drugs generally requires a prescription from a registered doctor in the country.
This is certainly the case in Australia.
To purchase Provigil in Australia from a pharmacy, you will need a prescription from a doctor. As previously discussed, there is absolutely no workaround here. Australian pharmacists cannot be negotiated with.
So, how do you get a Modafinil prescription in Australia? One that allows you to purchase Provigil or Modavigil from a pharmacy…
You head over to a doctor and beg for mercy.
Just kidding.
Generally, Australian doctors only prescribe Modafinil for patients who have narcolepsy – which is not exactly a medical issue one can “fake” or lie about.
Narcolepsy is a condition where one falls asleep at all times of the day – often without warning. It can be potentially dangerous, especially when operating a motor vehicle.
If you have narcolepsy, just go to the doctor and get a Modafinil prescription. No need to read this guide. For the rest of us, we’re left with two options when getting a Modafinil prescription in Australia is of concern.
The first one involves going to a sleep specialist and complaining of excessive daytime sleepiness and drowsiness. You can blame the fatigue on sleep apnea or shift sleep disorder. The doctor should order a day-time sleep study.
Based upon these results, the doctor could then prescribe Modafinil due to excessive daytime sleepiness.
That’s the last 100% legal way of getting a Modafinil prescription in Australia.
Luckily…There are other ways to get your hands on Modafinil while living down under. Ways that certainly are NOT illegal.
The easiest? You can buy Modafinil online and have it shipped to Australia.
– Is this 100% legal? –
Again, I’m no lawyer.
But I’ve yet to hear about anyone having legitimate legal issues importing a Schedule 4 pharmaceutical drug for personal use – which I’ll be discussing furthermore below.
I’d surmise the worst that happens is your package gets seized by customs and you get a full refund from the online Modafinil pharmacy you purchased from.
Even this is rare!
See, the best Modafinil online vendors guarantee their shipments to Australia. This means you either get your Modafinil or you get a full refund or reshipment. Your choice.
Basically, you have no risk. If customs confiscates your package, you get your money back or the vendor sends you another order ASAP.
Which brings me to my next point…

Where to Buy Modafinil Online in Australia | 2020 Guide

You may be wondering where you can buy Modafinil online in Australia. Well, you’re in luck. That’s where I come in.
I’ve bought from over a half dozen Modafinil vendors over the years. I know who has legit product, fast shipping times, and reliable customer services.
Plus, I know which pharmacy has the fastest shipping to Australia! If you want to get buy Modafinil online from down under, the vendors below make it pretty easy.
So without further ado, here’s where to buy Modafinil in Australia:


I’ve quickly become a huge fan of BuyModa.
These guys offer impressive customer service, massive Bitcoin discounts, and guaranteed delivery. You either get your generic Modafinil or you get a full refund/ reshipment. Your choice.
There’s no risk on your part.
And here’s the kicker:
— I’ve yet to see customer service like this from a Modafinil vendor —
These guys do an incredible job pleasing their customer in Australia.
Fast email support, 24/7 chat, and more. Their website is easy to use and their prices are great. I’m talking some of the absolute best deals on nootropics for Australians.
Oh, and don’t forget about the massive Bitcoin discount of 35% off! Yes, you read that right…35% off any order with cryptocurrency.
Plus, you get 3o free Modafinil tablets with every order over $100 USD from Buy Moda. To even further increase your savings here.
Most orders from Buy Moda will arrive within 6-14 days while in Australia. That’s pretty quick!
Overall, Buy Moda is a great Modafinil vendor for Australians — one that offers incredibly low prices, fast shipping, and some of the best customer service in the industry.

If you’re buying Modafinil and smart drugs in Australia, then Modafinil XL is a great place to check out too.
These guys offer great prices, some of the best customer services you’ll find when buying Modafinil, and rapid shipping to Australia.
Modafinil XL offers 7-10 day delivery in Australia.
That’s fast. You’ll have your Modafinil in about a week when ordering from these guys — all the way down under!
Plus, Modafinil XL offers guaranteed delivery to Australia! You’ll either get your Modafinil order or you’ll get a full refund/reshipment. It’s your choice and there’s legit no risk when ordering.
The smart drugs, Modafinil and Armodafinil, you get from Modafinil XL will be legit products and offer massive cognitive benefits.
I’ve personally tested their products through two orders with these guys.
Finally, Modafinil XL offers great Bitcoin discounts. You can save up to 35% off your order when combining these coupons.
Overall…
I couldn’t recommend Modafinil XL enough to Australians looking to buy nootropics!

Shipping Modafinil | Australia Edition

It’s easy to assume that shipping Modafinil to Australia would cause issues with customs throughout the country.
That doesn’t appear to be the case.
Here’s why:
Modafinil may be a schedule 4 drug in Australia, but possession may not be considered completely illegal.
There’s a public list of controlled substances in the country published by The Office of Drug Control in Australia.
The list contains any and substances that are banned from importation into the country without permission.
Modafinil is conveniently not on this list!
Aka shipping Modafinil to Australia for personal use is not technically illegal.
The TGA does state that prescription drugs purchases online require a copy of the prescription from the seller. If your Modafinil order is confiscated upon importing, the Modafinil can be held until a prescription is submitted.
If you don’t submit the prescription within a certain timeframe, the contents of the package will be destroyed.
But here’s the thing…
This rarely, if ever, happens.
Schedule 4 pharmaceutical drugs like Modafinil generally make it past customs security without a single issue or problem.
It’s why the best Modafinil vendors offer guaranteed delivery to the country without even thinking about it.
Customs officials in Australia are more concerned with illicit drugs, like cocaine and heroin, than an individual trying to boost cognition through pharmaceutical drugs and nootropics.
As of writing, I’m unaware of a SINGLE instance of someone having legal trouble for importing Modafinil for personal use in Australia.
I’m no lawyer, but you needn’t worry about buying Modafinil and Armodafinil online in Australia.
Furthermore…
Most Modafinil orders in Australia will arrive within 5-15 business days – depending on the vendor selected, product chosen, and location within the country.
Pretty quick if you ask me.

Generic Modafinil and Armodafinil in Australia

If you get a prescription from the doctor in Australia, you’ll be able to buy Modafinil from a pharmacy in the country.
Once you have a prescription, you can go to the pharmacy and get Modafinil under names like:
These are brand name Modafinil products sold in pharmacies in Australia.
For Australians looking to order Modafinil online, common generic Modafinil products include:
These generic forms of Modafinil all do a damn good job. In fact, generic Modafinil and Armodafinil compare well with brand name products.
There’s not much of a difference between Provigil and Modalert.
Plus, after testing all four of these generic products, I have a few recommendations for Australians and those living in the country.
Modalert is the stronger generic Modafinil brand in Australia. I highly recommend it. Modvigil is a cheap alternative for Australians looking for Modafinil.
When looking for Modafinil’s little cousin Armodafinil, I prefer Waklert. However, Artvigil is a little bit cheaper.
Overall, I stick with Modalert and Waklert for good reason. I’ve found them to be superior products and recommend them for anyone looking to buy Modafinil online in Australia.

Adrafinil in Australia, Prescription-Free Alternative

Now, some of you may be looking for a 100% legal alternative to Modafinil. While I’m confident you won’t have any issues getting your hands on Modafinil while living in Australia, many people want another option.
I get that, which is why I recommend Adrafinil, too.
Adrafinil is a 100% legal and over-the-counter smart drug. It’s a legit Modafinil alternative.
Why? Because the body essentially converts Adrafinil to the active ingredient in Modafinil after ingestion (Source).
As such, it takes a little bit longer for Adrafinil to kick in than Modafinil. The smart drug also isn’t nearly as strong as Modafinil due to how it works.
Overall, Adrafinil is an ok option if you don’t want to use Modafinil. But Modafinil is the king of smart drugs for a reason – it’s the best thing out there.

Other Nootropics

If you’re curious about other nootropics in Australia and potential Modafinil alternatives, I’ve got a couple more ideas for you.
Just know that Modafinil is the ‘King’ and Armodafinil in Australia is the ‘Queen’ when talking nootropics.
Hell, Adrafinil is the ‘Prince’ to take that little analogy one step further.
There’s still some other nootropics in Australia that can be worthwhile alternatives. Here’s a few of my favorites:
