Bytecoin 1.0.6 updates CryptoNote and upgrades e-commerce integration

Today's release introduces an updated Bytecoin RPC Wallet for e-commerce with a new feature called aggregate multi-addresses. In short, this feature allows services to create a branch of unique addresses to easily differentiate users. This feature is a significant update of the CryptoNote protocol:

  • It effectively depreciates payment_id (a formerly indispensable part for any CryptoNote currency)
  • It facilitates web wallets operation
  • It greatly upgrades Bytecoin integration and deposits by allowing to assign each user with a unique address
  • It reduces server resources required for maintaining dozens of users' addresses
  • It increases overall privacy of Bytecoin

There is more to 1.0.6 release than just aggregate multi-addresses feature:

  • Updated IWallet and IBlockchainExplorer high level APIs
  • Traffic between the node and the wallet has been optimized providing faster synchronization

Towards easier integration

Now all you have to do to integrate Bytecoin is:

1. Install Bytecoin RPC Wallet
2. Generate users addresses for each new user (through Bytecoin RPC Wallet API)
3. Process the payments in a matter of seconds

Important note: updating your Bytecoin RPC Wallet service will not disrupt your currently established system. This update is entirely backward compatible with payment_id deposits even though payment_id will be depreciated in further releases.

Update explained

The core idea of aggregate multi-addresses can be described as 'shared half of view key', i.e. common data for all users, namely key 'a'. Keys 'b', surely, are unique for each user, which implies different 'spend keys' and different addresses.


We've explained the adjustments in CryptoNote which made this update available in our blog post on aggregate multi-addresses.

I would like to have a look at technical specification of Bytecoin multi-addresses processing. Where may I find it?
