How to use Tectum Test Node?

To start testing Tectum blockchain, you need to run the Tectum Test file Node.exe (Download on GitHub>>). During startup, a reaction from the antivirus/firewall is possible, this is due to the features of the software, it is necessary to ignore the warning and continue the launch. We do NOT DISTRIBUTE malware, and you can be sure of the security of the application being launched.After launching the application, you will be asked to enter your login details or register. When using it for the first time, click the "registration" button and fill in the required fields. The account is activated instantly!

 

Usage of the client node:

  1. The "Node" window.

This window displays blockchain events in real-time.

  1. The "Briefcase" window.

In this window, you can perform all the basic actions with the system using TET test tokens. In the "Make transaction" section, click the "Refresh" button to get a list of tokens available for transactions.

Upon registration, you are automatically credited with 1000 TET. Click on the token in the list in the "My tokens" window on the right side of the interface in the "Transfer" window, you will see your TET address. You can share this address with another member to have them transfer TET Test tokens to your account. You can also transfer TET from your wallet to any Test participant.

In the "Token" section, you can get information about the ICO of the used token by entering the ICO number from the "My tokens" window of the "Make transaction" section in the "Token ID" field.

 

The "Blocks" section displays information about the specified range of blockchain blocks (you can set a range of blockchain blocks (you can set a range of no more than 10 blocks).

 

 

The Latest block section displays comprehensive information about the latest block range, including transaction speed, hash rate, and other block write parameters.

The "Startup" section in this version of the application is deactivated, but it gives you the opportunity to get acquainted with the possibility of launching your own ICO within the Tectum network.

The "Report" section displays information about the last 10 transactions between network members.

  1. BTC window.

This window allows you to transfer test BTC using the Tectum network. You can get test BTC on one of the following sites by following the instructions on them.

You can find out the address of your test wallet by clicking the “Show address” button. This is the address you should specify when requesting test BTC. Using this address, you can also receive test BTC from other test participants.

Pressing the "Refresh" button initiates an update of the test wallet data.

The "Send" section allows you to send test BTC to other test participants, indicating their wallet address and the amount of transfer.

The future of transaction-less payments is here.

Blockchain is a decentralized trust-less digital environment regulated by Consensus Protocol which maintains the integrity of the entire system enabling peer-to-peer interaction among its participants (nodes) as well as a hard-defined balance between transparency and anonymity of every digital event (transaction).

Consensus Protocol is the backbone of the network as it governs how all the events are managed and issues are resolved, therefore the approval of multiple nodes is required in order to validate each event on the network. The communication between nodes is governed by Network Protocol because nodes are normally located distantly from each other therefore the block-data is subject to all kinds of slowing-down factors. Network Protocol establishes and maintains connections between all the participants of the blockchain and is its most vulnerable components and bottleneck. The drawback of blockchain systems is their strong reliance on the network protocol which limits how fast the entire network of nodes distributed throughout the world gets updated, the situation worsens if the Consensus Protocol policies overload the network with redundant data. This inevitably leads to congestions and high network fees.

Tectum employs proprietary Proof-of-Utility Consensus and super-fast Network Protocols described in Tectum White Paper. Proof-of-Utility protocol optimizes data distribution and the Network Protocol enables nodes to distribute and validate over 1 million digital events per second making Tectum a natural candidate to become an “Overlay Network” for blockchain-based payment systems like Bitcoin. Tectum boosts the circulation of native cryptocurrencies eliminating transaction fees in the process using its frictionless payment system SoftNote.
SoftNote is the flagship product of Tectum and is positioned as the first transaction-less payment system boasting truly instant payment capabilities and a zero-fee policy for an end-user; it has adopted most “cash money” properties. Just like physical cash the SoftNote bill can be printed on paper, does not require confirmation of Bitcoin network, charges no fees, and has no geographical boundaries; it can be used as a means of payment person-to-person or sent over any network as a picture file. Unlike cash, however, SoftNote is secured by a pin-code rendering it useless to a bad player.

SoftNote makes it possible to implement “Cash Money” freedoms into a payment procedure by isolating a sender from the recipient by replacing a “transaction” procedure with the “handover” component using the cash-consensus protocol. The digital model of SoftNote possesses the logic, allowing users to hand over funds anonymously and tax-free. The principle of cash-consensus is based on the emission of SoftNote Bills assigned with digital serial numbers, denominations, public and secret keys of the native network using native crypto/digital currency as a store of value with Bitcoin leading the way.
