ARTIQOX ENERGY

ARTIQOX ENERGY AIE BLOCKCHAIN

Artiqox Energy (AIE) is an evolution of Artiqox. It is using NXT blockchain source code, thanks to that it comes with many features out of the box. Artiqox team will use AIE blockchain for future developments. Legacy AIQ blockchain holdings will be swapped into AIQ Asset represented on AIE blockchain in ratio 1:1. After that swap any amount left to 770 000 000 AIQ will be distributed to the holders in a form of airdrop and/or trading competition.

Artiqox Energy will have a total of 1 000 000 000 supply, it’s distribution will be as follows:

AIQ Holders Dividends

Half of AIE total supply will be distributed to AIQ holders. The speed at which they get distributed will vary over time. At first the dividend amount will be quite large, but ultimately it will be reduced. Payment will be done every 60 blocks, such timing will spread the distribution over 7 years (approximately, assuming block time as 60 seconds).

*the above table (its first two columns) will be modified as first block height will be known only after the swap is complete.

Guaranteed PoS Rewards

To increase rewards for node operators 10 percent of AIE total supply will be used. To achieve that, fees paid during dividends payment will be artificially increased from a default value of 1 AIE.

NXT License Fee

AIE is using NXT source code, in return 10 percent of total AIE supply needs to be paid to NXT holders. This process happens automatically during genesis block creation so nxt holders can already claim their share.

Developer Rewards

15 percent of total AIE supply will be used to encourage developers to build on AIE. This funds will be only paid after successful roll out of working products.

Operational Funds

5 percent will be secured for operational and maintenance, those are funds needed to run team’s servers and domains as well as other costs.

Marketing Funds

100 000 000 will be used to fund community events and airdrops as well as exchanges listings.

RUN AN ARTIQOX ENERGY NODE ON RASPBERRY PI

Installation

We will be using Raspbian Linux because it is made for Raspberry Pi.

In this tutorial wil be using Raspbian Jessie Lite, which is available for download on RaspberryPi.org.

To burn downloaded image to SD Card we need a tool called balenaEtcher.

The flash process is very simple just choose Jessie Lite image, select target (sd card) and hit “Flash!”

After that just insert SD into Raspberry Pi and fire it up.

Configuration

After the system boots you should see the login prompt. The default username is pi and the default password is raspberry. Once you are logged in, run the following to install the latest OS updates:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Next, start the OS configuration utility by typing the following:

sudo raspi-config

The best thing to do first is change the default password to something not default. Choose “Change User Password” and follow the prompts to set a new password.

Then “Advanced Options”

We aren’t using a window manager so we can use the GPU memory in the OS. So select “Memory Split” and change the value to 16.

If you want to be able to access your node from another computer via SSH you can enable the service under “SSH”. But when you will have everything working to disable it for security reasons.

And the last step is to rewrite the partition table of your SD card and use the full storage capacity. Select option “Expand Filesystem”

All done, press ESC to exit and reboot system:

sudo reboot

Now it’s time to increase swap space. Edit configuration file and restarting the service:
sudo nano /etc/dphys-swapfile
Find and modify the line for CONF_SWAPSIZE and set it to 512 or 1024 and save the file (CTRL-O, ENTER, CTRL-X).

Network Config

It is good to set static IP for Your Raspberry Pi configuring Your router.
To check the current IP just type:

ifconfig eth0

Java Installation

AIE Client requires Java 8. You can download and manually install the Oracle JRE, or you can easily install the OpenJDK JRE:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

To check if it’s installed properly type to check vrsion:

java -version

Installing AIE Client

Download the latest version from the https://github.com/artiqox/ArtiqoxEnergy/releases.
You can use the wget command in the console to directly download the file over HTTPS. As of this writing the current AIE release version is 1.0.0, but make sure you are downloading the latest version available.

wget https://github.com/artiqox/ArtiqoxEnergy/releases/download/1.0.0/AIE-client-1.0.0.zip

Extract the zip file in “aie” directory

mkdir ~/aie
cd ~/aie
unzip AIE-client-1.0.0.zip

Now You will need find out Your public IP address by typing

curl ipinfo.io

Take note of “ip” address and then run command to create a new configuration file:

nano ~/aie/conf/nxt.properties

Like in this example:

Next edit the startup file and optimize the memory configuration:

nano ~/aie/run.sh
Add the parameter -Xmx640m to increase the default the Java heap memory allocation to 640mb:

We are done! Now You are ready to start the server.

Starting server

Best way to keep Your new server alive and still be able to manage by connecting via ssh, is to keep it running in the screen.
To install screen type:

sudo apt-get install screen -y

Next, we will setup the name of new screen and enter into it

screen -S ”aie”

or edit run.sh file again
nano ~/nxt/run.sh

and change to:

AIE Client runs as a server process that provides an API and a web client interface. First, start the server:

cd ~/aie
sh ./run.sh

You should see the Nxt server start up and synchronize with the network. When startup is complete you will see the following:

To leave server running while closing console window press keys combination
to detach

CTRL+a+d

after that You can close console windows.
To re- attach session enter command

screen -r aie

Next step is to open browser on a PC connected to the same network navigate to the local IP of the Raspberry Pi on port 6870.

For the interactive API interface, append “/test” to the url.

To stop the AIE Client server, press CTRL-C at the console window.
