Gamecoin is a fantastic brand and one of the oldest active cryptocurrencies in existence. GameCoin was originally launched on May 12th, 2013 and is an early example of a Scrypt based Proof of Work (PoW) cryptocurrency. In August, 2018, a team of dedicated cryptocurrency enthusiasts decided to revive the coin and develop a new client.

Over the next few days, we’ll be releasing the Windows and MAC wallets and publishing the Gamecoin roadmap. PoW coins are making a comeback, for one because they're not under the purview of the SEC, and not defined as securities.

We have a great team behind this coin and invite you to join us as we journey together forward in bringing Gamecoin into mass market adoption. Please feel free to comment below in the thread and offer your ideas and suggestions on how we can make Gamecoin a competitive player in the gaming and sports worlds.

Since working in cryptocurrency from 2012, I've never been so excited about a new project. Right now we're just in the early days of Gamecoin, and Crypto as a whole. Gamecoin is a great brand and we intend to continue improving and innovating as we grow.

Peter Bushnell (ACP inventor, Feathercoin creator) has just provided us with a rock solid client that will serve us well for the next 12 to 18 months. During that period it is my goal to establish a cryptocurrency R&D center where a sustainable replacement for PoW can be developed. I'll be sure to expand on that topic in the coming 2019 Gamecoin Roadmap.

I'd like to thank everyone who has climbed back on board. We have done our best to reward the early adopters while also giving everyone the rest of the year to collect the enormous 1,000 coin block rewards before the subsidy drops to 10 sometime in January.

No one has ever questioned the enormous strength of the Gamecoin brand. Now it's just a matter of building out a platform worthy for such a great name.

GameCoin has the potential to be a multi-billion dollar brand.  Gaming is only one part of it.  The world is so into sports and that means money. LOTS of it.  Gaming is beyond the controller.  It's Football, Basketball, Hockey, Baseball, Tennis, Soccer, Skiing, Olympics... The list goes on.  Sports and gaming is a multi-billion dollar prospect.  GameCoin is positioning itself to be the dominant player to lead these industries into the crypto age.  Hang on.

Been noticing something strange on Altilly-  they seem to have fake strange volume, or sell orders that only appear right before they are bought. Very strange bot. Yesterday I narrowed the spread, and the bot got really confused.

Perhaps it is not a big deal.

altilly itself does not run any bots.   We do, however, have an extensive API which allows others to perform trading operations.

This new consensus mechanism is why I came to Gamecoin. We should have the whitepaper v1.0 ready in 1 week.

There's also a hard fork coming up around the first of the year where the block reward drops from 1000 to 10. Rest assured, the fork after that will not contain the antiquated system known as Proof of Work.

PoW is not sustainable and must be replaced!

Thanks for the kind words, @microguy. It just came naturally based on the global impact this will have. So yep, the cats out of the bag. The talent behind GameCoin is going to turn the crypto world upside down, and I mean that in a good way. That’s the vision and it’s time to execute. Are you a coder?  Want to change the world? Then join the GameCoin community and make your mark. “Think gaming...then think EVERYTHING else”

Lots of cryptocurrency coins in this world that have been made.
Then ICO is now also strong in selling tokens like Yamzu, because Yamzu has the support of DOTA, GO Counter Strike and Battle Field.

Is GameCoin able to compete with all of them?

We mentioned last week that GameCoin was going to change the world once again...

Proof of Participation (PoP) will bring that about.

PoW rewards those with the greatest hash power.
PoS rewards those with the largest wallets.

PoP will reward anyone running a client.

The PoW scheme is not sustainable as the amount of hash power required to find a block goes up daily.  How many times have you heard that crypto mining is using more electricity than what's required to light a city?  It's the dirty little secret about crypt.

As Apple did with the iPod; They weren't the first, but they had a vision and took the status quo and made it better.  They innovated.

Is there a reason that the difficulty adjusts after 12 blocks and not every block, why not implement KGW?

A good and positive concept need some good and strong marketing because right now gaming industry is doing very good so devs can bring this more popular if they started with some social media help good luck to all because I just bought few on Altilly and going to keep for some time.  :D

I just read up a bit on KGW.  Interesting algo.  This client was rebased from 0.8.2 to 0.13.  In that process, Advanced Checkpointing was added to protect against a low hash.  With block times of 2.5 min, it's only about 30 min before a adjustment would occur.  Could be something to look into in the future.  Thanks for that comment.

Yes, 30 minutes, except for when the difficulty rises well above the hashrate. This time is only present when the hash rate is equal to the difficulty. Yesterday it took nearly 3 hours to solve the 12 blocks.

We mentioned last week that GameCoin was going to change the world once again...

Proof of Participation (PoP) will bring that about.

PoW rewards those with the greatest hash power.
PoS rewards those with the largest wallets.

PoP will reward anyone running a client.

The PoW scheme is not sustainable as the amount of hash power required to find a block goes up daily.  How many times have you heard that crypto mining is using more electricity than what's required to light a city?  It's the dirty little secret about crypt.

As Apple did with the iPod; They weren't the first, but they had a vision and took the status quo and made it better.  They innovated.

Welcome to the innovation of crypto!

GameCoin

"Think Gaming... Then think EVERYTHING else"

Is there a reason that the difficulty adjusts after 12 blocks and not every block, why not implement KGW?

I just read up a bit on KGW.  Interesting algo.  This client was rebased from 0.8.2 to 0.13.  In that process, Advanced Checkpointing was added to protect against a low hash.  With block times of 2.5 min, it's only about 30 min before a adjustment would occur.  Could be something to look into in the future.  Thanks for that comment.


Yes, 30 minutes, except for when the difficulty rises well above the hashrate. This time is only present when the hash rate is equal to the difficulty. Yesterday it took nearly 3 hours to solve the 12 blocks.

A good and positive concept need some good and strong marketing because right now gaming industry is doing very good so devs can bring this more popular if they started with some social media help good luck to all because I just bought few on Altilly and going to keep for some time.  :D

Welcome to GameCoin.  Wise decision to buy GME off the Altilly exchange.  Holding is definitely in your best interest!

Block 343,400 has just been found.  That means there are 26,600 blocks to go before the rules change and the reward drops from 1,000 to 10. That is a good thing if you are holding GME.  But don't let that distract you.  The GameCoin vision with Proof of Participation is going to make this coin a world-wide leader.  "Think gaming...

After doing some further reading, KGW has been exploited in the past. DGW apparently uses similar structure but a better algorithm.

The Proof of Participation (PoP) white paper is well under way. GameCoin is going to be the game changer. The ability to mine will once again be back in the hands of the individual. An asic rig and a CPU will have an equal opportunity to win the block in the “raffle”. The mining process, in effect, becomes a game in itself. How appropriate. “Think gaming... Then think EVERYTHING else”

Good question. We are all mining now and saving our energy for the big promotion that will be coordinated with the reward decrease.
 
At that time, we will be issuing a press release announcing the transition to Proof of Participation (PoP).

We have had a successful fork! 

At approximately 19:06 GMT, the 370,000th block was found and the reward reduced to 10.  A great deal of thanks to the developer who did a fantastic job re-basing the client flawlessly, Peter Bushnell (@bushstar).

Welcome to the new GameCoin.  In the not so distant future things will start to ramp up as we put into play the move to a Proof of Participation (PoP).  It will be a game changer in the world of crypto and will level the playing field for all who wish to mine, while dramatically reducing the wasted energy currently seen in PoW mining.

Congratulations, one and all!

The GME blockchain has been stuck for 2 days now at difficulty of 71!

Going to point a miner at it, it will take a while before the difficulty gets readjusted to a reasonable level. The price of the coin doesn't justify the electricity expenditure therefore I won't be able to mine on it for very long.

DGW looking like a better option than a 12 block readjustment period with only 10% change in difficulty each time.

May want to remove funds from Altilly exchange (not that one should keep funds on any exchange for long periods of time). Not attempting to produce panic, just noting pattern-ism in exchanges over the last 6 years.
Seems the first thing a site will do when they are having problems is disable the chat feature.

Personally I have not had any issue with w/d or deposits to this exchange, just noting the chat feature as a point of warning.
