There is a high-level description of this algorithm at http://cpucoinlist.com/cryptocurrency-algorithms/wild-keccack/ which reports as follows: Wild Keccak is a Keccak hybrid which uses blockchain data as scratchpad. After each Keccak round, pseudo-randomly addressed [state vector used as addresses] data is taken from scratchpad and XORed with ...

Considering that Monero forked away from the original creator to begin with i think that already sufficiently answers the question. If the devs all of a sudden up and walk off the job all at once, there will be others that will step up and pick up where they left off. Most of the code is opensource, and sure some services, domains, etc may be difficult to ...

I think Monero's community is a lot bigger than Boolberry's and you would hope that others would step in and fill the breach, but there's no getting away from the fact it would be terrible for the coin were (m)any of the devs to just quit. Indeed I believe one of the devs passed away last year. That said, as the community grows in usage and popularity more ...

BBR aliasing is unique. An alias remains valid in the blockchain permanently as long as the blockchain is intact. From a security point of view it is very secure as it is hardcoded. This is different from a database relaying system offered by other methods.

The issue sounds like a wallet has a wrong view of what outputs are spent. A fix would be to rescan the wallet (rescan_spent or rescan_bc in Monero's wallet, or delete the cache file). The "full reward zone" is completely and entirely unrelated to potential wallet sync issues.

I just took a look at the get_transaction_hash function in the Monero source code, and if I understand it correctly, the way the transaction hash is computed will change once ringct is activated. The comments in the code indicate: v1 transactions hash the entire blob v2 transactions hash different parts together, then hash the set of those hashes The 3 ...
