Why not? The community of this coin isn't dead.

I don't understand why you switch the Algo at or after the end of the (profitable) PoW Phase, IIRC (If I Remember Correctly) the Block Reward is now 5 HAL per Block and was like > 250 HAL per Block when first mined, so with the new NeoScrypt Algo people would mine for 5 Coins a Block.

Don't you think any other feature would "push" the coin more other than switching the Algo ?

The PoW phase has been finished by block #20K originally. There is no pre-mine and no ICO, but what you say a profitable PoW phase is a well played instamine. I don't like 100% PoS coins and instamined releases when only insiders and a small number of outsiders are able to participate in highly profitable mining before it's over. Small reward without any time restrictions is much better.

Well, it's not my intention to play this coin for a good dump, but what features do you suggest to add?

This is a good indicator why this coin needs changes. I've done my part, the rest depends on community.

The plan #1 is not to fall dead. I don't want to decide on my own and take all responsibility. I don't even own any sizeable part of HAL. The community should contribute to the decision making process rather than waiting for another P&D. I'm listening.

First of all who are you? This is the second time I am asking and you don't seem willing to volunteer that information. Without that, there's no credibility whatsoever so why would the community support you? The coin is technically dead so any efforts to "revive" it is just an exercise in futility unless there's total transparency and a plan. A waste of time.

So lets start at the beginning or forget about the whole thing, who are you? Full name. Full transparency. Otherwise I am going to just assume you are just another scammer, maybe even Dan Metcalf himself.

Edit to add: Oh and it is IMPERATIVE, absolutely sine qua non, that the official thread of the new Halcyon be UNCENSORED. The opposite of this one, is that perfectly clear. Otherwise I reaffirm again: You are trying to scam people, no two-ways around it.

I don't think I owe you a detailed explanation of who I am. What really matters is that I can code and not interested in scamming. I also don't see a queue of developers volunteering to revive this coin, with a plan or without. Therefore the choice of a developer to support is rather simple. This coin is far from dead technically as I can see.

If you've got a problem with Dan Metcalf, that's none of my business actually. Am I supposed to care what you assume to the greatest extent of your imagination? Make a try though, impress the audience how I'm going to scam them on this coin without access to any pre-mine, instamine, ICO, etc.?

Of course I have a problem with Metcalf: same I have with every mf scammer.

You dont owe me anything... unless you ask for my support. If you do, you owe me TOTAL transparency. Without community support, this dies. You think you will get it with your attitude?  By my guest.

If you are not here to scam why are you here, behind the mask? You can try bs in your answer but, again, good luch with that.

Like the bs -textbook raw, smoking, unadulterated- about the censored thread. Good luck with that too.

I wouldnt support you, under the circumstances, if my life would depend on it.

But good luck with that anyway.

You see two quite old coins in my signature under my development. I've also designed NeoScrypt. I don't think I'll make much money with HAL if any. The reason why I've fixed this coin because a community member has approached me with an offer. Accepted it because owed him a kind of favour. After all, I don't beg anyone to support me. You can stay with the old developer on the old chain or dump your coins now for nothing. That's a pretty clear alternative.

Mobile wallet is a good thing to have in general, but I think a working block explorer is more important. Have you noticed the previous developer has taken down his block explorer a week ago or so? I have also deployed a few seed nodes for HAL at my own expence to keep the network in one piece. It includes a master node for block checkpointing the previous developer never cared to set up. I don't see anyone saying thanks for this.

Market is a waste of time and money. My experience tells it's a sure failure for small volatile altcoins. If you want merchants, approach them one by one. You can also try to get signed by a payment processor like CoinPayments or LitePaid. The last news I've heard CoinPayments charges $250 for every 90 days of service. Any volunteers to pay this fee?

You simply don't get it. Can't get it. It's ok. You are going to need quite a bit of luck.

Repaying a sort of friend a sort of favor IS payment. For normal individuals.

I believe you are sort of normal, but can be quite wrong about that.
