Title: [ANN][I0C] I0coin hardfork DONE, everybody please upgrade to at least 0.8.3-2
Post by: rsnel on August 17, 2013, 06:48:12 AM

To everybody who joined us in the resurrection of I0coin and everybody else:

There were some problems with the codebase, most notably the asymmetric difficulty adjustment (slow rise, fast fall). It allows 51% attackers generate more blocks than they should.

The only way to fix it, is to change it in the code and have ALL USERS upgrade. In the resurrection announcement thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=268228.0) the changes are discussed, starting from this post (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=268228.msg2915605#msg2915605).

Please upgrade to at least 0.8.3-2 or current git HEAD now.
  • GNU/Linux binaries (32/64bit): http://i0coin.snel.it/i0coin-0.8.3-2/i0coin-0.8.3-2-linux.tar.gz

State of the coin:

At the moment, the hashrate has stabilized at around 10 GH/s TH/s, which is impressive, but still only about 1/3 of IXC and DVC. If you want to contribute to the security of I0coin, please consider mining at http://mmpool.bitparking.com/pool/ (BTC 0% DGM, NMC/DVC/IXC/GRC/I0C PPS) (you generate BTC, as usual, and you get NMC/DVC/IXC/GRC/I0C for free).

Rather do it yourself using p2pool? In the announcement (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=268228.0) there is a small howto. For more in depth coverage of merged mining, see this excellent topic (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=62842.0).

Once the fork is done and the hashrate has climbed, i except exchanges to (re-)introduce this nice coin.

State of the coin, September 10th:

The fork has occured. The old, unsupported and unsafe, chain is grinding to a halt. No significant hashing power exists there. Current hashrate is about 15 TH/s. The fork seems to be a success and it it time for the exchanges to pick up this coin. Lightlord has offered a bounty of I0C 25000 to the first exchange that (re)introduces I0coin.

Edit:
  • Fixed typo in hashrate. Is TH/s, not GH/s.
  • Updated post to reflect that the hardfork has occured.

Yeah because no one fixed the issues. rsnel has put a lot of work into the new binaries and has demonstrated his wish to continue to develop it! It's great news for cryptocurrencies, one of the "oldies" is back!

As far as I know, I0coin has not yet appeared on an exchange. It probably will after the fork is successful.

Current hashrate 12 TH/s.

I intend to claim the bounty in the bounty-thread when I0coin is back at the exchanges. Lightlord already payed his I0C 20000.  :)

Cryptsy knows about the new clients, I think they're waiting to see the network stabilize and show that it is worth putting the effort of an exchange together.

About 2 days left.

A lot of people still need to upgrade:
Code:
$ ~/src/i0coin/src/i0coind getpeerinfo| grep -e subver | sort | uniq -c
      4         "subver" : "",
      8         "subver" : "/Satoshi:0.8.3/",
      8         "subver" : "/Satoshi:0.8.3.1/",
     21         "subver" : "/Satoshi:0.8.3.4/",

Just sayin'....

You mean a pool that merged mines bitcoins and i0coins?

As it wouldn't make much sense to mine i0coins without merging...

So is this THE official i0Coin thread?

Does anybody wanna sell some i0Coin?   I've got a thing for old school coins and this is one of the originals.  There is some risk here since its not even on an exchange yet but if I can get a favorable price I would like to buy some.  TIA!

Not sure. I would not part with mine for the low price shown at http://galaxies.mygamesonline.org/latestrates.inc

(I expect that price is a low price someone wants to buy at, not one anyone is likely to sell at, and is maybe there mostly for the purpose of allowing the (net asset) value of the shares of corps who hold some I0Coins to be computed.)

I would expect it to be worth at least as much as Ixcoin, or close anyway, it gives only 3 coins per block now how many is Ixcoin giving?

IxCoin is 96 coins but it takes like 1 year for ixCoin to mine around 2,000 coins with a top rig.

Fast confirmations?  Isn't i0Coin a clone of ixCoin or vice versa - which is a clone of bitcoin so they should all have the same slow ass Bitcoin-like confirmations.  That was my understanding.  Anyone?

Litecoin is a "clone" of bitcoin, go figure.

I think I0Coin is something like one and a half minutes block target time whereas IXCoin is maybe ten minute or so like bitcoin.

Lol, I realize litecoin is a clone of BTC.  I meant clone, like exact, a true copy with very minor change.

Man, I wish ixCoin was a faster coin than BTC, would help out my theory a lot.  Still struggling to find more reasons for ixCoin to be a huge hit.

On an interesting note:  I said 2 weeks ago when LTC breached 19 that it would keep going lower and lower.  And now it's at 14 which a huge drop for such a stable "silver" coin.

My theory was this:  by now the people with money or an education realize that Bitcoin is about to take it to the next level and what will happen to the Eco system with a $500 or $1,000 Bitcoin AND with plenty of a cheap ASICS?

Let me ask a different way.  Would you spend $300 for a single HUNGRY GPU which needs a computer and mine (very slowly) just ONE unlredictable alt coin at a time or would you spend that same $1,000 on ASICS and mine the most valuable and fast growing Bitcoin AND on top of that, with the same hardware, also mine 5 or more other alt coins?

So clearly, without ASICS and without a clear leader in scrypt there is no future for either LTC or any other scrypt coin. 

And so I call the death of LTC and scrypt coins and I point to the negative correlation between almost all scrypt coins and Bitcoin as evidence.  I am curious to see what happens to the merge mined coins as Bitcoin sky rockets - so far, for whatever odd reason, ixCoin is very positively correlated to Bitcoin so that could get very interesting.

Like, where and when are the scrypt ASICS coming?

And what fool, besides you, would mine one shitty coin dropping in value, when for the same money you can mine a rising Bitcoin and a half dozen other alt coins which are way more secure and in some cases, way more stable and more popular.

Please, give me some facts or shut the fuck up!

Asshole, learn to read.  In 2 posts I STATED SHA COINS ARE MERGE MINED (FOR FREE) and scrypt coins are not which is why I said LOUD AND CLEAR, LTC and scrypt are DEAD.

Twice now you failed to read Basic English.  You're an idiot with handicapped reading comprehension.


So let me ask you again, besides the personal attacks, can you provide just one shred of factual evidence, such like what I've provided, to contradict what I have said?

Cause if all you have is shit-poor reading skills and name calling abilities then you're a true imbecile!

Hi guys, big volume today? It was me who bought IOCoin. I recently bought up some IXcoin and now I sell them for triple the price and trade them for IOcoin, because I think the coins are equal and I just prefer to have 2 coins instead of 1 and I don't care if it is IX or IO. I saw the story of IO and IX coin and I figured a lot of people know them. Although some "young guns" (the earliest adopters) talk bad about them sometime, they survived their first years and it looks like both coins will be here to stay because of merged mining and dedicated people. I see big potential for both currency pairs as the incentive to merge mine is clearly there. With a strong network I'm sure people will trust their money to the 2 earliest forks.

I still concider everyone who is in Bitcoin now a early adopter, because really, the IX and IO market looks like there are maybe 5 people worldwide who actively trade them like me.

I really believe that BTC will be the money of the future and all people who do not hold them yet can still profit huge. The fair value of both alt-coins is 1:1 and with a price of 0.00002 I think the next generation adopters will see their potential in making a profit trading these coins. Remember that Bitcoins circulate and are traded for dollars, so as long as new people come in and buy "new" btc the price will rise. I do not need to sell my coins so as long as you have a long breath another not so early adopter will also see the potential and take them at some point in the future.

These new inventions are still made fun of by some people, but they all hold the key for a new way of living. If your money is created without interest it will not give you the wrong incentives, I can talk for hours about it. The thing is, a lot of people are going to need some kind of new currency and all these crypto's are it in my opinion. A lot of them will fail but some will survive and with IO/IX being one of the earliest, most simple to understand (1:1) and merge mined, I believe both of them will be a part of our new economy.

The problem with all these altcoins is that they are all traded against BTC. If you could trade them for $ seperately I'm sure people would buy a altcoin instead of BTC. I don't really mind that the marketcap is still small, because I'm dedicated to build these markets so they can become a stable alternative without volatility.

I just have 1 question: how many confirmations do you need with IO coin. 6 like IX or more? make my day and tell me 6, because that would mean transaction time would be 1/10th of IX coin, right? I'm a financial guy more than a dev and I can't really read code, so could someone tell me how I can see that? Is there some place where I can see the total number of active nodes in the network?

I will be placing i0coin on cryptocoinexplorer.com as one of the coins testing CCE3. This means it is a permanent part of CCE (as long as it stays active), but to be introduced under the CCE3 test program.

Address will follow the normal CCE address scheme:

i0c.cryptocoinexplorer.com (http://i0c.cryptocoinexplorer.com)

i0coin has a couple year old block chain, so it will take some time for for the initial database to be built, more than likely overnight and even into tomorrow.

I will probably turn on the web server before the database is complete, but I will post in the CCE3 project thread when complete.

Volume today was me moving/combining my mined coins into usable addresses. I'm pretty sure I killed the blockchain for 2 days straight. I literally had to use 1/2 million transactions to not be over the size limit for every single one. crazy. Also someone made out on fees.

At the moment, the hashrate has stabilized at around 10 GH/s TH/s, which is impressive, but still only about 1/3 of IXC and DVC. If you want to contribute to the security of I0coin, please consider mining at http://mmpool.bitparking.com/pool/ (BTC 0% DGM, NMC/DVC/IXC/GRC/I0C PPS) (you generate BTC, as usual, and you get NMC/DVC/IXC/GRC/I0C for free).

Rather do it yourself using p2pool? In the announcement (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=268228.0) there is a small howto. For more in depth coverage of merged mining, see this excellent topic (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=62842.0).

Once the fork is done and the hashrate has climbed, i except exchanges to (re-)introduce this nice coin.

State of the coin, September 10th:

The fork has occured. The old, unsupported and unsafe, chain is grinding to a halt. No significant hashing power exists there. Current hashrate is about 15 TH/s. The fork seems to be a success and it it time for the exchanges to pick up this coin. Lightlord has offered a bounty of I0C 25000 to the first exchange that (re)introduces I0coin.

Edit:
  • Fixed typo in hashrate. Is TH/s, not GH/s.
  • Updated post to reflect that the hardfork has occured.


A resilient community I admire but I didn't invest my money on. Anyway, I wish you the best.
I am not sure the tx time is all the issue, people look for secure and long lasting coins, they don't care that much about technicalities.
See you in 2017.

Cryptsy stole 800,000 or more IXCoins and also a lot of bitcoins that had been a big part of thecapital backing both IXCoin and I0Coin, it will take while longer to recover from that, but both are still in for the long haul so this is a great time to stockpile them both cheaply.
