Technology is one thing.
Technology without wider adoption is nothing.


Coins don't belong on exchanges and should be traded in a truly peer to peer fashion
with incentives to do so. †Cryptocurrencies should be allowed to breath to the point
where they become entire vessels for changing established systems. †
We have the technology.

The main purpose of Jumbucks is to make a coin that people will use. †
The aim is to not only be fun and experimental but to be a beacon
towards the direction to where I feel cryptocurrencies should be headed.

The use cases for Jumbucks are designed to fund honest developers
for future coin development and encourage people to keep their wallets
open (and staking coins) by offering unique wallet features.

There will be compelling and self sustaining
use cases never before seen in the crypto world.

Jumbucks is a fork of ShadowCoin at the core level and will immediately offer
great features such as P2P encrypted messaging and anonymous dual-key stealth addresses.

Jumbucks Releases The Exclusive Crypto Community Cards

Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is proud to announce the release of their Crypto Community Cards project.  Crypto Community Cards is a unique product that can only be purchased with Jumbucks, through the website of launch partner Cryptochips.net (http://cryptochips.net/).  This product was created by the Jumbucks' team as a fun and promotional product, for the whole cryptocurrency community.  We hope you embrace this initiative, and we look forward to meeting your interest with even more Community Card sets in the future!

"Community Cards are a fun way to introduce your friends that are new to crypto, to the wealth of notable personalities who have made an impact on this revolutionary technology.  Trade, collect, and share - This is crypto!"
@cryptokrill


Cryptocurrencies at their heart are intended to be mediums of exchange for goods and services, however oftentimes, this simple factor is forgotten.  If there is no demand or value placed on holding a particular cryptocurrency then its value naturally declines.  The goal of every cryptocurrency should be to work towards establishing an intrinsic  value, such that the marketplace begins to depend upon its very  existence.

Twitter user @cryptokrill first mentioned the idea of crypto trading cards to me just a short while after Jumbucks' launch.  In light of the vast array of cryptocurrency celebrities and personalities, I thought his idea was the perfect way to create memorabilia marking this exciting time in history. Because time and innovation move so swiftly in the world of cryptocurrency, the names and faces you know today might be completely forgotten by tomorrow, or they just might turn out to be the great leaders of a brave new future. Crypto Community Cards ensure that the excitement of these days will not be forgotten.


Our team worked together  to brainstorm and plan out each detail of this project., and along the way we created a spreadsheet of over 100 people in the cryptocurrency world and went through several card designs.

In the end, and after weeks of development, we came up with 100 packs of 5 cards each which will make up the  initial batch for sale to the public.  The first set has a unique card for each of the following individuals: Gavin Andresen, Mark Karpeles, Jordan Fish, Andreas M. Antonopoulos and Charlie Shrem.

Each card is printed on ultra thick 16pt card stock, is full color on both sides, and is polished off with  a UV coated glossy finish.  These cards are made with the highest quality, and so are perfect for collecting!  The front of each card features a colorful depiction of a crypto community member with a brief bio and quotation on the back.  To complete the experience of opening a new pack of cards, each set is wrapped in beautiful foil packaging.


We encourage the community to give us their feedback on the Cryto Community Cards.  We have a wealth of great ideas for future printings, and future sets are planned with additional features to enhance  the collectible value of each card.

The Crypto Community Cards are a great way to spread  word of cryptocurrencies to your friends and family, and they are set to launch just before Thanksgiving so that orders made today will arrive before Christmas!

This project was brought to you by the following people who helped contribute to its creation: @cryptokrill, @Sicarious_, @sasankansony, @yakpimp, and Jumbuck's developer, @jyap.

In the end we are excited and proud to bring the world a unique product that cannot simply be replicated.  A lot of effort, cost, and time went into these cards to ensure that we were bringing something unique to the community, and not simply slapping the Jumbucks logo on hats, shirts, or keychains from a manufacturing wholesaler.  Collecting coins goes hand-in-hand with collecting cards. It is our hope that the community embraces this project sot hat we can make reprints of the first set, and produce even more unique sets for people to enjoy! Who knows, one of these future sets might feature you.

Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex, Cryptsy and will be available at launch on the upcoming AltMarket.com.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com).

The first set is available for purchase NOW on Cryptochips.net (http://cryptochips.net/)!

Exchanges have a purpose in the ecosystem.

There was such a thing as the Vericoin hack on Mintpal where 8 million VRC were lost.

But then again, you represent an exchange so you're naturally biased.

+bump For great idea.

Building the economy (functional use) of a coin FIRST.
Rather than hoping in vain after weeks of trading a coin magically gains use as money on an exchange.

It's the economy stupid.

BTC is the money.  LTC and now Ripple apparently function as secondaries.  They serve the purpose of providing (hopefully stability) and liquidity and a unit of measure when moving between p2p-digital-coins and fiat-bankers-money.

All the rest of the coins need to create an economy where they serve as a unit of account ... if you build value in those communities of economy (which just means work) then the coin goes up in value.    

As silly as it might seem the collectors cards illustrates the idea in acted in reality.  JBS are exchange able for the cards.

That's what a JBS is worth today.  And if the focus is on JBS traded in a truly peer to peer fashion, verses exchange house rates, then this puts the horse in front of the cart.

It went through a rebrand.

This started as a Coinmarkets joke coin with a ticker of JBS. Probably meant for Jebus or something equally stupid.

Now you want people to start taking this shitcoin seriously? LOL you do u really think a rebrand will do it?

Should've started a new coin entirely, also not so much inside-traded as this one.

Hey man, like you said. This coin started like a joke.

You haven't been involved much with this specific project, I must say. You'd see that it's not a joke coin actually, because the developer, Julian, is still around and working on it. How many "joke" coins did survive? How many coin devs from "serious" coins are still backing the same coin they made?

Check this: https://twitter.com/search?f=realtime&q=%24jbs&src=typd
Read for about 3 minutes and you'll see what is jyap trying to achieve.

It's not nice to jump on conclusions like that ;p
I could keep going and going on, but it's not important atm.
When he made #Jebus IRC chan, we were like 6-7 persons in there. Now the channel has more than 50 active persons.
Including some known twitter people.

In JBS I trust.

Peace!

The latest addition to the Jumbucks Official Cooperative Multipool is Quicksilver (ticker $QSLV).

This means that the Quicksilver community can point their miners at the Jumbucks multipool (http://mp.getjumbucks.com), insert a Quicksilver address, and receive Quicksilver in payment for their hashrate.  A small fee of 5% of the hashrate will go towards the Jumbucks miners, as payment for the service.

Keep up the great work Julian.

Have been a supporter of this coin from launch and like the direction we are headed. Took the initiative to give away 5 packs of the Crypto Community Cards on twitter to raise awareness. Has been a great experience met a lot of great people in crypto and learned a lot about the history of bitcoin and crypto. For all those just finding Jumbucks you'll find Julian to be honest and approachable hence why I call him "THE TRUTH" and it stuck. There is still one giveaway open on twitter here https://twitter.com/m_ad_04m_ax_/status/546372236504887296 (https://twitter.com/m_ad_04m_ax_/status/546372236504887296) RT and reply for a chance to win.

Jumbucks Multipool Is Now The Official Multipool For Unobtanium!

The Unobtanium community is excited to announce the selection of the Jumbucks Multicoin Multipool (http://mp.multipool.com) as an official UNO pool for X11 and Scrypt miners!

"The Jumbucks community is pleased to announce the addition of Unobtanium (UNO) to the growing list of coins integrated into the Jumbucks Multicoin Multipool. Beginning immediately, miners can elect to receive Unobtanium payouts for the mining hash they contribute to the multipool," said Julian Yap, the founder of Jumbucks.

"While the Jumbucks multipool will not be mining Unobtanium directly, Scrypt and X11 miners can now accumulate UNO through their mining activities," said Falling Knife, UNO's Community Manager.  "Jumbuck's UNO payouts will be acquired through buys from the market, and this consistent buying pressure will further support the price of Unobtanium. This collaboration between the Unobtanium and Jumbucks’ communities is an exciting new option to buoy the price of UNO."

Unobtanium is a long time top-50 cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap.com. Fairly launched in 2013 with no pre-mine, and with an active community and developers, Unobtanium is a rare Sha256d cryptocurrency that has passed through its inflationary phase. Only 250,000 UNO will ever be produced in 300 years.  Its unique non-inflationary characteristics have attracted bullion enthusiasts, miners, and long term investors to the Unobtanium community.

Jumbucks is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex, Cryptsy and will be available at launch on the upcoming AltMarket.com.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com).

To get started, miners can point their X11 and Scrypt hash at the Jumbucks multipool, using their UNO deposit address in place of the username.  Learn more about mining for Unobtanium payouts at http://mp.getjumbucks.com (http://mp.getjumbucks.com).

For more information on Unobtanium and to engage in the community, visit http://unobtanium.uno (http://unobtanium.uno).

MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD inflation control for Proof of Stake coin Jumbucks

This outlines a new setting called MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD that I intend to introduce to Jumbucks.

One of the common criticisms of the original Proof of Stake coin Peercoin is of the setting Maximum Coin Age.  With Peercoin the Minimum Coin Age is 30 days and the Maximum Coin Age is 90 days.  This means that coins must be idle for a minimum of 30 days to be eligible for staking.  Proof of Stake is based around stake weight which is calculated based on the amount of coins you have and the cumulative coin age.

Enforcing a Maximum Coin Age however means that it may not be possible for stakers with smaller amounts of coins to ever generate a Proof of Stake block as they may never gather enough stake weight within the Maximum Coin Age period to be eligible to stake a block.  Essentially those who have a large amount of coins stake the most amount of coins, for example this address (https://bkchain.org/ppc/address/P8tx5ggfB6T873N4ubwSnTCZxXGEX1Nf9E) which has over 550k PPC and this address (https://bkchain.org/ppc/address/PUS4hhdjnJeuyTHgkeyyaQy2Xs7b3BjURR) which has over 220k PPC. To put this into perspective for a smaller staker, someone who is consistently staking 4000 PPC will stake approximately 5 blocks per month.  Someone who is staking 550 PPC will stake approximately 1 block a month.

Most Proof of Stake coins these days set their Maximum Coin Age to Unlimited which helps to solve this issue so that smaller stakers can still generate enough stake weight.

One downside to having an Unlimited Maximum Coin Age is that someone is able to accumulate a very large stake weight by not staking their coins for a long time and then later bringing them back on to the network and staking them.  This can lead to "inflationary spikes" where lots of new coins are minted in a short span of time.

Here is an Inflation Chart of Jumbucks for the last 100k blocks where inflationary spikes can be observed.

http://i.imgur.com/qJetirG.png

Here is an Inflation Chart of a random Proof of Stake alt coin for the last 100k blocks where this can also be observed.

http://i.imgur.com/L3QlUTd.png

Here is a section of an Inflation Chart of a random Proof of Stake alt coin with a very pronounced inflation spike.

http://i.imgur.com/YrVEUZR.png

MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD will be a new setting which defines the Maximum Reward that a Proof of Stake block can yield.  In my proposal, the maximum reward will be set to 50% of the Proof of Stake interest rate so 8% Proof of Stake interest would have a MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD setting of 4 JBS.  This setting should only effect a small percentage of blocks but will have very positive effects overall.

This will have the following effect:
  • Jumbucks will not experience inflation spikes in coin supply.
  • Coin supply and inflation will be more predictable and smoother, similar to Proof of Work coins with a fixed emission schedule.
  • Larger stakers will be encouraged to stake more often so that their rewards stay within the MAX_BLOCK_STAKE_REWARD limit.
  • MAX_BLOCK_STAKE_REWARD will serve as a security and safety check so that large Proof of Stake block rewards can't be mined.
  • Unlimited Maximum Coin Age can be retained so that Proof of Stake miners with smaller amounts of coins can still be fairly rewarded.

It is my belief that a cryptocurrency should be widely distributed and that Proof of Stake coins have a strong and diverse network.  This proposed changes reflect those ideals.  Please let me know if there are any questions or comments.

Jumbucks Announces a New Official Developer On The Team

Jumbucks is proud to announce a new official developer on the team, Luke Williams.

Founder's statement (Julian Yap):

A good developer is hard to find, especially in the realm of cryptocurrency.  A good developer should not only possess the right skill set (or potential to acquire this), but also have a correct mentality surrounding the goals and ethics of the project, in addition to the principles for which cryptocurrencies stand.  When I first spoke to Luke, we hit it off immediately as it became clear that he clearly understood my goals for Jumbucks as a cryptocurrency.  Over the past several weeks we have discussed several longer-term projects which we would like to explore for Jumbucks,  about which we both saw eye to eye.  Luke is the kind of developer who knows how to bring a project from inception to completion and oversee its future growth.  He is also the first developer I have asked to come on board with Jumbucks and we are very excited to have him on the team.

Luke has over 10 years of coding experience, and is proficient in: C, C++, Perl, Python, and Node.js, to name only a few. He is a huge Slackware Linux fan (user since '00), and maintains a number of scripts to assist with package management and dependency resolution. His experience also includes security, web development, software development, and has a background in science. When not working on various open source projects (such as Iquidus Explorer (https://github.com/iquidus/explorer)), he designs and implements customized systems for chemistry laboratories in New Zealand. He is very passionate about cryptocurrencies and envisions a future where many of societies' core systems are completely transparent, decentralized, and running on blockchains.

The best way to contact Luke is through IRC: xocel, or Twitter: @iquidus (https://twitter.com/iquidus).

"The full power of blockchain technology has yet to be released, its benefits will extend far beyond currency. The JBS blockchain provides a great platform upon which new services and systems can be built. I'm very excited to join the Jumbucks team."
Luke Williams, Jumbucks developer


Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex, Cryptsy and will be available at launch on the upcoming AltMarket.com.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com).

Jumbucks Announces Official Raspberry Pi and Linux builds; bootstrap.dat file

The development team at Jumbucks are currently working on a larger project for the coin (and one that will benefit other Proof of Stake coins) so we wanted to provide something for the community along the lines of where we are going.

We were very excited when the new Raspberry Pi 2 (http://www.raspberrypi.org/raspberry-pi-2-on-sale/) came out as this new model had 4 cores and bumped up the RAM to 1 GB.  We instantly ordered some to test things out such as active staking for the past few weeks and were pleased with the results.  Staking works great with Jumbucks on the Raspberry Pi 2!

Keeping the hacker spirit alive, we are announcing official Jumbucks builds for Raspberry Pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org) and Linux.

These are available now at the Jumbucks 1.7 Release page on Github (https://github.com/jyap808/jumbucks/releases/tag/v1.7).

The latest upload files are:
Code:
d7bc7c926f14458c21f8571ddfb0b679  Jumbucks-1.7-RPi.tar.xz
a3917738e4fd5735bf89b68702fdcf07  Jumbucks-1.7-linux32.tar.xz
21ccde0cceb8f7109edf05d02c4dc92a  Jumbucks-1.7-linux64.tar.xz
0a747ca4dc608a043adb31147a396e26  bootstrap.dat.xz

We have also added a bootstrap.dat file.  bootstrap.dat allows a new Jumbucks client (not synced) to rapidly import the initial blocks from a local file instead of slowly downloading blocks from random peers. This significantly reduces the time it takes to get a client synced with the current blockchain (minutes instead of hours).  Simply having bootstrap.dat in Jumbucks' expected data directory will make your initial block sync much faster.

Regardless of your operating system use the following steps to make use of the bootstrap.dat file:

  • Download bootstrap.dat.xz.
  • Verify the integrity of bootstrap.dat.xz with the checksums.
  • Decompress to obtain bootstrap.dat.
  • Put it into the Jumbucks datadir. This is the same folder that contains wallet.dat and the blocks folder.
  • Delete bootstrap.dat.old if you want to recover some storage space.

Extract bootstrap.dat

Linux

Code:
xz -d bootstrap.dat.xz

Mac

You can obtain xz from Homebrew or MacPorts.

Windows

7Zip is a free utility that can decompress .xz files. The latest version of WinRAR also supports .xz files.

Copy bootstrap.dat to data directory

Copy bootstrap.dat to your data directory. After Jumbucks has used bootstrap.dat, the file will be renamed to bootstrap.dat.old; at this point you can choose to delete it or keep it.

Linux

Jumbucks' data directory is located in ~/.coinmarketscoin/ by default.

Mac

Jumbucks' data directory should be located in ~/Library/Application Support/Coinmarketscoin/.

Windows

Go to Start>Run (or press WinKey+R) and run: explorer %APPDATA%\Coinmarketscoin
Jumbucks' data directory will open. "AppData" and "Application Data" are hidden by default in Windows.

Here is the process snapshot of a Raspberry Pi 2 that is actively staking!



Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex, Cryptsy and will be available at launch on the upcoming AltMarket.com.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com).

Jumbucks Announces Official Raspberry Pi and Linux builds; bootstrap.dat file

The development team at Jumbucks are currently working on a larger project for the coin (and one that will benefit other Proof of Stake coins) so we wanted to provide something for the community along the lines of where we are going.

We were very excited when the new Raspberry Pi 2 (http://www.raspberrypi.org/raspberry-pi-2-on-sale/) came out as this new model had 4 cores and bumped up the RAM to 1 GB.  We instantly ordered some to test things out such as active staking for the past few weeks and were pleased with the results.  Staking works great with Jumbucks on the Raspberry Pi 2!

(truncated)

This is very cool.  I have a few old Raspberry Pis lying around - never really found anything exciting to do with them - might just get hold of RP2 just for fun so I can try this out!

I see on getjumbucks.com that this coin is a fork of ShadowCash. Then what does that mean the proof of developper of jumbucks if it's only a fork?

Guys, if you want updates, check the original coin ShadowCash:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=745352.msg11002986#msg11002986

There are some updates in our Github.

We've been working on stuff. I've posted some details on our Twitter account @getjumbucks and IRC is a good place to chat as well (#jumbucks on Freenode).

But thanks for stopping by.

The codebase was originally forked from SDC yes, just as SDC was originally forked from Blackcoin. There have been many commits since the initial fork, I'm not quite sure what you are trying to get at here? (as everything is a fork of BTC). Both myself and jyap have attached our real names to this project, which can not be said about most coin devs.

We are working on a number of things, ranging from improvements to various parts of the coin codebase to jbs service infrastructure, and of course the Pi project which is getting most of my focus currently (see the @getjumbucks twitter for sneak peeks at the next phase of the Pi project).

Please keep in mind we don't get paid and it was a 100% fair launch, so our time/attention gets shared with other work (bills dont pay themselves). We spend a decent amount of time helping out other developers/projects in the crypto community etc and have various real life commitments (we are people too ;P).

The jbs team is in this for the long run, we have big plans for the future, and the right skillsets to make them happen.

We don't update this thread very often but jumbucks is being very actively developed. To stay up to date follow @getjumbucks on twitter, or visit us in #jumbucks on freenode. We are also in the process of setting up a jbs slack community.

Jumbucks Development Update

I wanted to give a quick update.  Jumbucks is over 7 months old now (launched September 2nd, 2014) but I've always considered it very early for cryptocurrencies in general.  That's taking the long term view to digital currency adoption.

We've seen a lot of coins come and go so when I started my own coin I really wanted to make something which would "stand the test of time".  Longevity is still a goal and a constant challenge but that is something a coin developer should accept and rise to.  Their goal should always be to provide more value to the coin and in my view, in the most ethical way possible.

A lot of the possible security flaws with Proof of Stake come with a poor Proof of Stake network where not many coins are staking and bad actors can exploit the network.  Thankfully Jumbucks isn't in this position and has performed very well in terms of stake percentage (typically over 50% (https://chainz.cryptoid.info/jbs/#!extraction)).  This is something I planned for when I implemented 8% Proof of Stake interest.  My thinking was that this was a good balance between early adopter staking, long term investing, coin distribution, inflation, etc…

One thing I want to do is move towards Proof of Stake 2.0 as implemented in Blackcoin.  This addresses some more possible security vulnerabilities.  I'll be testing this out with certain changes so that staking remains smooth and stable.  We have implemented quite a few code changes over time such as RPC additions and fixes, the MAX_BLOCK_STAKE_REWARD setting, Gitian build scripts to the Jumbucks code base.

In the future, should cryptocurrencies take off we'll want to have dedicated devices to perform our staking duties.  We don't believe in centralized cloud staking as this is insecure and gives too much power to a single entity.  We're working on something to address this and make Proof of Stake more safe, secure and automated.  We'll also be discussing this with some other coin communities as well so they can benefit from our work.

The MAX_BLOCK_STAKE_REWARD setting in Jumbucks also discourages centralized staking by capping rewards and encouraging a well distributed Proof of Stake network.  The MAX_BLOCK_STAKE_REWARD setting also prevents possible Proof of Stake coin inflation attacks which can be caused by single entities such as exchanges who are in control of a large amount of idle coins and can mint a large amount of coins.  There has been examples of this happening and this is a real threat.  I've started a short whitepaper as well which outlines the MAX_BLOCK_STAKE_REWARD setting.

Another thing we'll do is move our primary real-time communications system from IRC to Slack (https://slack.com/).  Slack has quite a few benefits such as more modern integrations and should be inviting for newcomers.  We actually have Jumbucks Slack set up already but we want to test out a few things (such as a public gateway, interactive elements, bots) before opening it up to the public.  The free version of Slack is limited to 5 integrations so we want to make sure we use those to the fullest.

I Tweeted at one point early on that I wasn't going to comment about price for JBS. That still remains true and I've refrained from retweeting or mentioning anything price related.  Ultimately price should reflect value so we want JBS to be viewed as a long term coin with dedicated developers.  Basically JBS is a coin that I would personally invest in, had someone else created it.

JBS was always viewed as my experimental coin and the work is also intended to add value be it through more services, better infrastructure and so forth.  I spend a lot of time checking out various blockchain related projects and discussing them with the other Jumbucks developer @iquidus (https://twitter.com/iquidus).  One thing we really want to do is something along the lines of a distributed hash table for data storage, tied to the Jumbucks blockchain.

Thank you for your support and for following along.

- Julian

Agreed.  I like that this is moving on slowly and steadily and without hype.  Whilst in the past I used to invest in every shiny new coin (the glory days of early 2014!) now I try to invest in people that I trust and believe in.  As long as Julian is involved with this it will continue to have my support.

Hell yes....just quiet the same with me when seeing a new coin :D....but currently there are too may of them, really like a bunch of mushrooms during raining, become too hot too handle at the market 'till got loss for the bucks, even though sometimes that's the art of trading right? :)
Tired of that, it's about time to keep our money at the right one and I'm really sure that jbs could be the one.

A little bit scary now when jbs at the first page of bittrex, hope that those whales will not make a play for a dumb instead of a dump. But it's ok, bought jbs at half price of the present time and i will keep it, not much but valuable, a truly valuable coin to be kept.

Will make a donation to Julian as the dev if he doesn't mind with my tiny amount :)

Keep rockin' guys  ;)

Hi. Sync shouldn't take that long since there are lots of nodes.

You can try the bootstrap.dat method. That should be much faster.

It's hard to say what their criteria is (the didn't say specifics) considering a particular coin on their service has less than $10 worth of volume.

But Shapeshift did mention that Jumbucks is up for consideration.

imo they're playing a little too safe and cautious (considering the coins they've strictly added) - works both ways I guess

someone might just step in and offer a wider service soon if they don't change strategy or maybe not

Jumbucks New Wallet Version 1.8 - Maintenance update with directory name changes

Hi all,

A new wallet version 1.8 (https://github.com/jyap808/jumbucks/releases/tag/v1.8) has been released for Jumbucks. This is a relatively minor update but does require some interaction from the user for upgrading as the data directory has been renamed. For existing users, please pay attention to the Upgrade steps below. New users may install the wallet as is.

For Windows users this update also includes standalone executable wallets for 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

Other improvements include new RPC commands and faster start up times.

Upgrade steps:

The data directory and configuration file has been renamed. This change was necessary to fully deprecate the old CoinmarketsCoin name to switch over to Jumbucks.

  • Backup your wallet.dat file
  • Shut down the current version 1.7 wallet
  • Rename the data directory the the new name described below. Rename configuration file (if you manually created one) from coinmarketscoin.conf to jumbucks.conf
  • Install the new version
  • Start up the new version 1.8 wallet and verify everything works
  • Windows users MAY need to follow the step of deleting everything in their data directory except for their wallet.dat file since the wallet is in a new executable format. This would require a full resync of the blockchain and steps to sync from a bootstrap.dat file are included below.

OLD data directory

Code:
Windows < Vista: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\CoinmarketsCoin
Windows >= Vista: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\CoinmarketsCoin
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/CoinmarketsCoin
Unix: ~/.coinmarketscoin

NEW data directory

Code:
Windows < Vista: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Jumbucks
Windows >= Vista: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Jumbucks
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Jumbucks
Unix: ~/.jumbucks

Download links:

Github: https://github.com/jyap808/jumbucks/releases/tag/v1.8

Changes:

  • Updated some QT wallet images such as the splash screen
  • Added getwalletinfo RPC call
  • RPC command liststealthaddresses - Multiple address fix
  • RPC command liststealthaddresses - Results reformatted to be consistent with rest of RPC calls
  • RPC command sendtoaddress - Call sendtostealthaddress if passed a stealth address
  • RPC command sendtoaddress & sendtostealthaddress - Reordered params moving narration to end
  • OpenSSL DER fix to allow for latest versions of OpenSSL
  • Decrease the default number of blocks to check at startup to 500
  • Modify DNS seeds to use getjumbucks.com domain and deprecate old coinmarketscoin.com domain
  • Remove redundant stake modifier checkpoints checks
  • Reduce nStakeCombineThreshold to 500 for smoother network staking

Bootstrap.dat file:

The Bootstrap.dat allows a new Jumbucks client (not synced) to rapidly import the initial blocks from a local file instead of slowly downloading blocks from random peers. This significantly reduces the time it takes to get a client synced with the current blockchain (minutes instead of hours). Simply having bootstrap.dat in Jumbucks' expected data directory will make your initial block sync much faster.

The current Bootstrap file is at block 414,811 (May 25, 2015).

Regardless of your operating system use the following steps to make use of the bootstrap.dat file:

  • Download bootstrap.dat.xz
  • Verify the integrity of bootstrap.dat.xz with the checksums.
  • Decompress to obtain bootstrap.dat.
  • Put it into the Jumbucks datadir. This is the same folder that contains wallet.dat and the blocks folder.
  • Delete bootstrap.dat.old if you want to recover some storage space.

Signed version tag:

This version has been tagged and signed as v1.8 in Git.  Verify it using my GPG public key on https://keybase.io/jyap.

Code:
$ git tag -v v1.8
object 2a187cd3379512b1b1c3228ad80bab4a9ce7d638
type commit
tag v1.8
tagger Julian Yap <> 1432435937 -1000

Signed 1.8 tag
gpg: Signature made Sat May 23 16:52:17 2015 HST using RSA key ID 7F661F0A
gpg: Good signature from "Julian Yap <>"
gpg:                 aka "keybase.io/jyap <>"

Thanks,
Julian

Jumbucks Slack - Open to all!

Cultivating a strong community is very important for a coin but something that is often neglected or overlooked by its creators.  In contrast, Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) cryptocurrency was originally built around an IRC community called #coinmarkets, and since then has focused upon growing and strengthening the larger cryptocurrency community.

Technology surrounding the cryptocurrency scene is in a constant state of flux, so it's imperative that a coin have the ability to adapt and change with the times.

Jumbucks has long had a dedicated IRC channel on Freenode but oftentimes this medium of communication can be limiting.  There is a learning curve involved with IRC that is not inviting for newcomers, and they are also at risk from scammers who lurk in channels to prey on new users.

Because of this, we have ported the custom existing commands from the Jumbucks IRC channel into Jumbucks Slack.  As time progresses, we will be improving the Jumbucks Slack experience with custom bots, new functionality, and other interactive elements.

My vision for Jumbucks is that it will always be a welcoming community where both oldtimers and people new to cryptocurrencies can feel welcome.  Jumbucks Slack will always be open to everyone and there are no requirements for members to be a Jumbucks supporter or holder.

Joining bonus and referral program

That being said, we want to take this opportunity to welcome each newcomer to our growing community with a gift of 20 $JBS. Also, you can earn 5 additionally $JBS for every person you refer to the Slack channel, to a maximum of 10 referals. (This program is subject to change.)

To claim your free $JBS, please join the #referrals channel in Jumbucks Slack and mention your claim--payouts will be done manually.

We hope you can all join us in Jumbucks Slack!

Sign up to Jumbucks Slack at slack.getjumbucks.com (http://slack.getjumbucks.com)


Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched in September 2014 without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex and Cryptsy.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com).

Jumbucks Fantasy Football
 
The 1st Annual Jumbucks Fantasy Football season is up and running! Twelve players from a variety of interests and backgrounds have signed up and the smack talk has already begun. For some of the players this represents their first taste of cryptocurrency, while others are are established members of the Jumbucks community taking their first punt at fantasy sports. We look forward to seeing both groups smack talk throughout the season, and anticipate several new Jumbucks and cryptocurrency fans by the time the competition completes.
 
The league buy in was 20 USD worth of $JBS. Five members of the Jumbucks community also donated to increase the prize pool, so many thanks to Julian (https://twitter.com/jyap), Xocel (https://twitter.com/iquidus), Sicarious (https://twitter.com/Sicarious_), Saintgermaine (https://twitter.com/Jensign), Bittrex Bill and Takeshi (https://twitter.com/TakeshiKovacs66) for their donations and support of Jumbucks. Calculating the player buy-ins, plus the donations, the total prize pool is up to 10,000 $JBS! This prize pool will be held and staked in a wallet managed by the Jumbucks devs until the league finishes.  The league’s 1st place winner will receive 65% of the pool in addition to the stake, 2nd place will receive 25%, and 3rd place will receive 10%.

The league will kick off with a draft on Saturday September 5th and will run all the way through week 16 of the NFL season. If you want to check out the league channel and talk some smack with the league players, head over to http://slack.getjumbucks.com/ (http://slack.getjumbucks.com) and join  #jbs-fantasy-football. While all twelve spots in the league are already filled, you are invited to reserve a position in the event that one of the current players has to drop out. If enough additional interest is raised then there could be an opportunity to create a second league. We look forward to a fun season, and invite you to drop in the Jumbucks Slack (http://slack.getjumbucks.com) channel to welcome all the newcomers to Jumbucks.

Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched in September 2014 without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex, Bleutrade and Cryptsy.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com).

Jumbucks New Wallet Version 1.9 - Please upgrade

Hi all,

A new wallet version 1.9 (https://github.com/jyap808/jumbucks/releases/tag/v1.9) has been released for Jumbucks. This release is a clean upgrade for users currently running version 1.8 of the wallet. If you are upgrading from version 1.7 or prior, please follow the steps in the release notes of version 1.8 as the data directory was renamed in that release. New users may install the wallet as is.

Highlights of this release include greatly improved wallet and staking performance.

This release is an incremental step to being a very solid cryptocurrency. It has some staking changes which improves wallet performance and the network for the long term future.

The next update will likely change the block times to something longer, for example up from 60 seconds to 100 seconds and change the proof of stake algorithm to SHA256.  This would be a version 2.0 release as it requires a hard fork.

We remind you that the primary communications channel is Jumbucks Slack.

Thank you for your support!

Download links:

Github: https://github.com/jyap808/jumbucks/releases/tag/v1.9

Changes:

  • Removed the unused encrypted messaging feature. This saves memory and network resources.
  • Modify Proof of Stake rewards to change based on nTime as opposed to block count. This makes the switchover at year 2 and year 10 exact in time.
  • Increase the number of nodes required (from 3 to 5) to be connected for staking for better broadcasting of blocks.
  • Rebalance staking network. More inputs, less resources, better stake payouts. This also results in a more stable wallet taking up less resources.
  • Only sign blocks based on current time as slow systems can unintentionally lag behind. This helps to reduce network orphaned blocks.
  • RPC command getwalletinfo - Modify to add more details
  • RPC command dumpbootstrap - New command

Signed version tag:

This version has been tagged and signed as v1.9 in Git.  Verify it using my GPG public key on https://keybase.io/jyap.

Julian,

Technically, yes.  Most have upgraded.  You are highly encouraged to upgrade ASAP as this release takes up less resources too.  The exchanges Bittrex and Bleutrade have also upgraded.  Cryptsy is unfortunately running 1.7.

In this change in the 1.8 release:
Code:
commit 9dd0268580d3c73ccc77ae512d7203bb9b1fc6ff
Date:   Sun Sep 13 22:55:21 2015 -1000

Change Proof of Stake rewards to change based on nTime as opposed to block count.

The next reward change kicks in at exactly 2 years since launch:
Code:
if (pindexBest->nTime >= 1472688000) // Thu, 01 Sep 2016 00:00:00 UTC

Previously it kicked in based on block count:
Code:
if (nHeight >= YEARLY_BLOCKCOUNT * 2)
Where YEARLY_BLOCKCOUNT was set to:
Code:
static const int64_t YEARLY_BLOCKCOUNT = 525600;  // 60 * 24 * 365

So you definitely MUST upgrade prior to block 1,051,200.  Currently at block 606,987.

The next update will most likely be a hard fork so that will be a mandatory update but I'll give ample time to upgrade that.

Jumbucks Slack Tip Bot

Tip bot is live and up and running at Jumbucks Slack! Tips are on the blockchain! Happy tipping!

Sign up to Jumbucks Slack here: http://slack.getjumbucks.com


Tips are onchain, thus viewable on block explorers. If tipped, you will need to wait for the next block before it is added to your tipbot balance. A tx fee will also be taken from your tipbot balance, equivalent to the standard network tx fee.
 
Tips can not exceed your tipbot balance - 0.0005 JBS. This is to ensure there is enough left for the tx fee. This also applies to withdraws.
 
Minimum tip amount is 0.1 JBS

 
Code:
Usage:
 
tipbot deposit                            Returns users deposit address
 
tipbot balance                            Returns users current balance
 
tipbot tip <@user> <amount>               Tips @user amount JBS
e.g: tipbot tip @xocel 100
 
tipbot withdraw <address> <amount>        Withdraw amount to address
e.g: tipbot withdraw JZp9893FMmrm1681bDuJBU7c6w11kyEY7D 100

Here are some observations.

Jumbucks Version 1.9 was released this 22 days ago which allowed time for most to upgrade (over 75% of nodes).

In the first yellow box, the Interval column, we can see that thanks to the changes in version 1.9, daily block times are now more stable around the 60 second mark.  Prior to this, daily block times were around 48 to 57 seconds.

In the 2nd yellow box, the Transactions column, we can see that wiith the addition of the Jumbucks Slack tip bot, transactions have increased nicely.

On another note, I have experienced issues with withdrawing Jumbucks from the exchange Cryptsy and so has at least one other person (https://twitter.com/alex_sterk/status/651462998737879040).  I've filed a support ticket with Cryptsy but unfortunately there's not much that can be in this situation.  This illustrates a reason why it's important not to hold large amounts of cryptocurrencies on 3rd party exchanges.

Don't forget to Join Jumbucks Slack.  Currently 17 users online now of 271 registered.  Free sign up at: http://slack.getjumbucks.com

Hey SecretsOfCrypto

The last PoW block was block 30k. Jumbucks launched September 2014.

There is currently 8% PoS interest with a max stake block reward of 4 JBS.

At the end of 2 years, it becomes 5% interest and MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD = 2.5

At the end of 10 years, it becomes 2% interest and MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD = 1

Relevant Proof of Stake switchover code below:

Code:
    if (pindexBest->nTime >= 1472688000) // Thu, 01 Sep 2016 00:00:00 UTC
    {
        // Year 2. 5% interest and MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD = 2.5
        nSubsidy = nCoinAge * 5 * CENT * 33 / (365 * 33 + 8);
        nSubsidyLimit = 2.5 * COIN;
    }
    if (pindexBest->nTime >= 1725148800) // Sun, 01 Sep 2024 00:00:00 UTC
    {
        // Year 10. 2% interest and MAX_STAKE_BLOCK_REWARD = 1
        nSubsidy = nCoinAge * 2 * CENT * 33 / (365 * 33 + 8);
        nSubsidyLimit = 1 * COIN;
    }

Vulnerability in UPnP library used by Bitcoin Core

Today Bitcoin Core put out a warning stating that "Version before 1.9.20151008 of the miniupnpc library are vulnerable to a buffer overflow in the XML parser during initial network discovery".

We have made the necessary code changes so that Jumbucks is now compatible with the latest versions of the miniupnpc library.  We have also bumped the latest version in the Jumbucks source code (https://github.com/jyap808/jumbucks) to version 1.9.1.  Feel free to upgrade via building a new wallet if you are so inclined.

The Jumbucks developers have decided we won't be building a new release version just for this change as this issue requires "running a malicious UPnP server on the local network" to crash the application.

If this is an issue, disabling UPnP is the recommended course of action as stated in the original announcement (https://bitcoin.org/en/alert/2015-10-12-upnp-vulnerability).

Future versions of the Jumbucks wallet will have the latest version of the miniupnpc library built in unlike future versions of Bitcoin who have decided to disable miniupnpc by default.  The benefit of the Jumbucks wallet accept incoming connections from other peers by default greatly outweighs the potential issues that miniupnpc may have that can be worked around or patched in future versions quite easily.

Thank you,

Julian

2.  Max coin cap?

Post by: xocel on November 10, 2015, 04:39:12 AM
Hi fitinplace

Jumbucks is currently 100% proof of stake (PoS). JBS launched in September 2014 with a PoW phase of 31,000 blocks, then swapping to 100% PoS with a reward of 8%, it will step down to 5% in September 2016, and then to 2% in September 2024.
 
The average reward per block when staking JBS will vary from user to user due to how PoS works. It is calculated based on the PoS reward (8%) of the coin staked, over the period in which it has been accumulating stake weight/coin age, with a maximum cap of 4 JBS (currently).
 
You can get a pretty good idea of rewards by looking at a block explorer. For example this address has ~10.5k JBS: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/jbs/address.dws?10481.htm and looks to be averaging ~0.2jbs for each reward.
 
We have no fixed supply cap in the PoW sense. Supply right now is ~3,471,437 JBS, up from 3,293,010 JBS (end of PoW phase), an increase of a little over 5%. The rate at which this increases is controlled by a number of factors; As the PoS % reward steps down, the supply will increase less. As the supply becomes more distributed (more users staking less coins each) the supply will also increase less etc.

Jumbucks is proud to now also be listed on Cryptopia (https://www.cryptopia.co.nz) exchange based out of New Zealand!

Cryptopia loved Jumbucks so much that we were able to bypass the voting process and were immediately added!

You can find the market here: https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange?market=JBS_BTC

I also donated 1000 JBS to the Cryptopia giveaway faucet.  https://twitter.com/jyap/status/663299958297104384

Hi,

Some updates.

Jumbucks Coin Bot

Jumbucks Coin Bot is a new Twitter bot I coded up which monitors coin additions for Bittrex Exchange, C-CEX, Poloniex and Yobit Exchange! Tell your homies! It was launched a couple of weeks ago and currently has 242 followers.

https://twitter.com/jbscoinbot

Jumbucks on Cryptsy status

Cryptsy exchange lists Jumbucks but the wallet has been in an offline maintenance state for the past few months. It recently changed from offline maintenance status to apparently working state. Test withdrawals of JBS however have not been successful and remain in Pending state.  This is the same case for most coins (including Bitcoin) on Cryptsy as they also exhibit coin withdrawal issues.

Jumbucks recommends trading JBS on Bittrex and Cryptopia.

Jumbucks multipool

The Jumbucks multipool run by https://twitter.com/IcarusGlider was shut down a few months ago.

Here is the announcement tweet from Mica.

https://twitter.com/IcarusGlider/status/633299959404724224

Jumbucks Twitter tip bot

The Jumbucks Twitter tip bot run by the Pinkcoin developers was unfortunately shut down and has not been running for a few months.

Please request a withdrawal by logging into http://cosmiclottery.com using Twitter to view your balance.  A withdrawal request can then be made.

A tweet will then be sent out that looks like this:
https://twitter.com/cryptokrill/status/673438505628864512

"I would like to request that my 4,432.800 XJB be sent to: JTxGPSfNuSmxjPXg7fbWBCrv2YVzUBbQyN http://cosmiclottery.com/  via @pinkcoinlottery"

Jumbucks Fantasy Football - 2015 NFL Season Wrap Up

We are excited to announce the champion of the first ever Jumbucks Fantasy Football league, the Mt. Gox Frappacinos! Overall the league was a resounding success, delivering fierce competition and a great involvement rate even through the end of the season.

The Mt. Gox Frappacinos were a strong contender for the victor’s purse since the beginning of the season, with their roster anchored by Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady, and shored up each week by numerous smart waivers and trades.  The Frappacino’s further cemented their dominance by finishing the regular season as the highest scoring team!

Ketamine Milkshakes secured the league’s second place spot, with a team anchored by Antonio Brown and Andy Dalton. While they exited the draft with a shortage of top-tier players, the Katamine Milkshakes fought skillfully all season long and were rewarded with the second place prize.

Bombaklots are our league’s third place winners. Following an excellent rating in the draft, several all star players performed below expectations, forcing the Bombaklots to remain flexible and adapt their lineup throughout the season.

Over 14,000 Jumbucks [JBS] were paid out in championship purses, funded through player entry fees, donations from the Jumbucks development team, and donations from our community on Slack.getjumbucks.com.

Congrats to the winners of our first annual Jumbucks Fantasy Football league, and thank you to all our participants for a great season! Happy New Years, everybody. #Jumbucks.

Closing Statement from Saintgermaine (https://twitter.com/Jensign):

Congrats on the first annual Jumbucks fantasy football season. It was a solid season. Pretty much everyone stayed active till the end. Mt Gox Frappacinos took home the championship. All season long the Frap's were at the top of the power ranks, anchored by Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady the Frap's made some good waiver moves and trades. He finished the regular season as the top scorer as well so its good to see the highest scoring team get the Scrilla $ he deserves. Ketamine milkskshakes finished in second place his team was anchored by Antonio Brown and Andy Dalton, he basically had no top tier RB after the draft but continued to hold on to D.Johnson of Arizona, and picked up James white New England, to finish strong, and had a very productive season despite not having to many all star caliber players. Bombaklots finished 3rd and scored well most the season, he looked like the top dog after the draft but CJ Anderson, Demarco Murray, and Carlos Hyde did not trurn out to be the dominant RB's that could be counted on all season long. Well it was a fun season thanks again for those that donated to the prize pool. I will message the winners on how to collect their winings and you should be paid in the next 24-48 hours....Fomo Jumbucks while you can. Peace out till next year.


Closing Statement from Xocel (https://twitter.com/iquidus):

Would like to thank everyone that participated in the JBS fantasy football league. By the end of the season the prize pool had grown to 12,315 JBS plus an additional 3,365 JBS from @saintgermaines bonus stake for first place. @chocobo won the season and just walked away with a very nice stash of JBS (11.3k). @dirtyboots77 claimed 2nd place (taking 3k JBS home) and @saintgermaine came in 3rd (1.2k JBS). Congratulations! payouts have been sent. I'm looking forward to doing more of this type of thing in the future  :)

If you're running JBS from compiled source, can you try the latest updates I put out?

https://github.com/jyap808/jumbucks/commits/master

If you're sync'ing the blockchain from a bootstrap, I've put in a change that really speeds it up.  Sync'ing (900k blocks) up in about 1.5 hours vs. lots of hours..
 
Specifically the latest commit takes out centralized sync checkpointing so this should lead to much less CPU usage.

Thanks,
Julian

I've been slowly working on a project that I want to bring to the proof of concept phase ASAP.  There are a lot of things going on and like a lot of coins that have actual work being done, there aren't many people assisting..  Best to say, things happen when they happen and this is a volunteer project.  Part of this is giving people (coin holders and supporters) realistic expectations.

Here are some items I'm currently working on and some extra explanations.

Jumbucks 1.9.5

This will be a minor release which removes centralized checkpointing and has the faster bootstrap (900k blocks in 1.73 hrs).  That work is already done and in Github.

The work here is in preparation for version 2.0 of the wallet/daemon and the Jumbucks project I'm working on.  The other feature I want to test is implementing libsecp256k1 (https://github.com/bitcoin-core/secp256k1), the Optimized C library for EC operations on curve secp256k1, and benchmarking that to see if it improves wallet performance.

Optional upgrade.

The point here is to improve the user experience as we on board more wallet users.  Decentralized projects will require a running wallet with the blockchain.

Jumbucks 2.0

Named 2.0 as it will be a hard fork.

1 block every 60 seconds is an issue as it leads to more block processing, disk space, orphaned blocks.  If I had to redo Jumbucks from scratch, this would be the one thing I'd really like to change.

Proposed move to 88 or 100 seconds.  This will also lead to faster start up since there will be proportionally less blocks.  Everything in terms of resource usage is basically improved with longer block times.  Shorter block times only really increase confirmation times.

Move to sha256 hashing for PoS blocks. Scrypt is brutal. Takes up more memory, is slower and is the main reason for a slower blockchain sync.

Decred code base switch

Shelving this as a “nice to have” or potential project. Breakdown below.

Pros:

  • New active code base
  • Hierarchical Deterministic wallets
  • Potential for new users through mining
  • Better multisig support

Cons:

  • Need to maintain and grow a PoW base. Pretty difficult and costly.
  • Security. Need to maintain a core mining farm to keep the chain secure and processing.
  • Switchover costs and transition time.
  • A less mature code base. No GUI wallets. Harder for general users.
  • JBS code base is very stable and hands off.
  • Slower blockchain processing.

New wallet

An actual “new wallet” with a redesign/graphics/layout, etc… is pretty low priority.

The amount of effort required isn’t really worth it considering there are very few people people using wallets.

More effort will be placed on developing selling points.


Thanks,
Julian

Something I want to announce is that myself and @cryptokrill are in charge of one of the official Decred stake pools (there will only be a maximum of 10) which we will be launching shortly.

The TLDR is that the stake pool allows you to stake DCR without having your laptop/PC on 24/7 as Decred staking works more on a lottery type system where you buy tickets. Official stake pools are also required to run multiple voting servers which incurs a monthly cost.

The work that the Decred team has done to get the multisig cold staking, stake pools and stake pools with fees working is really impressive.

Most of the current stake pools have launched with either a straight 5% or 7.5% fee for the tickets but I want to change it up a bit so that it benefits JBS holders.

Here is the proposal.

The fee will be advertised as 8% publicly. 4% will be allocated for pool maintenance and server costs. 2% will be allocated to a JBS development fund. 2% will be for JBS market buys which will be rewarded back to stake pool users periodically.

This will make the pool competitive in fees and the cheapest in terms of straight pool maintenance and server costs. The overall changes will also help the JBS ecosystem with rewards to users and stimulated market activity.

Here are some more details related to the Decred Proof of Stake pool and potential payouts mentioned in Slack.

[6:48 PM] 
saintgermaine: sounds great @julian could you help quantify the impact.. like put the expected numbers this might generate for jbs dev fund and market buys..as for the market buys how often will that happen? I dont really understand pools very well so wondering how often they process...i guess in summary im asking if you can explain a bit more but keep it simple?

[7:56 PM] 
julian: .. i'll run some numbers now

a bit of this terminology takes some explaining. to use the pool you are paying fees from your reward

currently the PoS reward is around 1.8 per staked vote. this slowly declines over time over a reward curve... but it will be around 1.7 to 1.8 for a while.

so in a PoS pool if you pay a 10% fee:
1.8 DCR * 0.1 = 0.18 DCR fee

on the lower end, if no one buys tickets or uses the pool, obviously that means 0 market buys, 0 payouts.

(screen shot of current pools and stats)

here are the numbers from the current pools for comparison

pools are relatively new, so numbers will definitely rise across the board

so we are also required to be capped at 5% of all live tickets. that's so that pools have a balance.

[8:03 PM] 
saintgermaine: so your hoping to get jbs hodlers to be decred miners/stakers so that the 8% fee is similar to other pools but the addedd benefits is a percentage of the *% goesback into JBS..?

[8:03 PM] 
julian: yes

i'll run max numbers based on 5%.. one second

[8:04 PM] 
saintgermaine: sounds like a winner

[8:04 PM] 
julian: essentially i try and build a win win situation for all

and previously we had a PoW multipool but yeah micah stopped running it

but this DCR PoS mining pool should be self sustaining

ok, so there are 5 minute block times. and 5 votes per block.

12 blocks per hour

12 blocks * 24 hours * 5 votes = 1440 votes per day

"These pools will be soft-capped at 5% of the stake tickets each" OK, yeah, it's 5%

so 5% of 1440.0 is 72 voted tickets a day

72 voted * 1.8 reward * 0.08 (8 percent) = 10.368 DCR max fees collected

2.592 DCR would be max buy back per day

[8:11 PM] 
saintgermaine: :grinning:

[8:12 PM] 
julian: so max buy back would be around $4.17312 per day based on current DCR price of $1.61 per DCR

.. so that also depends on the price of DCR.

(screen shot of DCR historical price)

but DCR USD price has been pretty steady

[8:15 PM] 
saintgermaine: thx jyap for info

[8:15 PM] 
julian: No problemo. but yeah payouts would be "periodically". i say that since i'd do them manually to begin with.

The Decred stake pool is now live. I am going to make another tab so people can add their JBS address if they want payments. You can use it perfectly fine for now.  Happy DCR staking!

Hey Jumbuckers,

Quick question as Jumbucks is the only coin I really stake. Moving my staking wallet from one PC to another. Just moving the wallet.dat is all i need to do yea? I feel like im missing some coins since booting it back up after a few months offline from an old computer. Probably not but thought i should ask.

Thanks!

The Wallet.Dat should be all you need.

I have moved my JBS wallet around a few times now and have never had an issue when just moving the wallet.dat
No missing coins or anything.

Maybe you have less than you remember :P
I am going to say that is a sign from the crypto overlords that you need to get more :P

The Jumbucks Decred Stake Pool is currently the 4th ranked in terms of number of Live tickets.

Recently I've set up my local development environment so I can make some changes.

Currently on my list of TODO items for the pool:

  • Implement a Theme (just quickly for now to differentiate from the other pool)
  • Add in a tab to add a JBS address to receive payments back
  • Formally announce the stake pool in an email to the mailing list and other channels

Feel free to sign up and use the pool. If you need help buying tickets the #jumbucks channel in Slack is always helpful.

Today I have set myself up with a Raspberry Pi 3 and 3.5" LCD Touchscreen so I can always see my JBS balance and stake :)

Thought I would share some pictures with you all.

http://i.imgur.com/hs0jnr3.jpg
Testing and setting things up. hardest part was LCD drivers, but was quick and easy to get running.

http://i.imgur.com/aDvFTjU.png
Running the wallet :)
Staking works perfectly.

Wallet is easy to set up on a rPi with the provided rPi wallet files from the main post.

Set up costs:
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
Heatsinks x2
Case to fit LCD
3.5" LCD TouchScreen
16GB SD Card
Adapter and Cable (Not the same cable as the pictures)

The above was brought as a whole kit from Aliexpress for just over $65 USD.
rPi is original and came in original factory sealed box. LCD is Chinese but was provided with 'drivers' from Waveshare.
Set up to get the LCD displaying and reacting to touch took under 10 minutes, just a few simple commands and a restart.

I messaged the Aliexpress seller and was provided with a recent link to download the latest files and a simple install guide.

I did spend a few hours looking for the drivers my self but ended up giving up. There is a LOT of variations of the 3.5" Touch Screen so I recommend you get drivers direct from the seller should you want to set one of these up for yourself.

Well worth it IMO. Looks awesome too :)

This is great, good job. How many different wallets do you think you could stake at the same time?

Depending on the coin algo I would say anywhere from 1 to 3 wallets running. JBS is quite memory intensive due to it being Scrypt based so would say 2 wallets at most on the Raspberry Pi 3. That would be pushing it and I would need to do some long term testing to see how it handles the load and heat over time.
For the time being I am keeping this as a locked down, JBS only Staking machine of wonder.

If you have a lot of coins staking I would go for a NUC PC from your manufacturer of choice. Gigabyte have a good set of them ranging from Low to High end depending on needs. No Mini Screen though :(

That being said, there will be other POS coins out there that are less mem intensive and could probably get away with 3 wallets on a rPi 3 at the same time.
rPi 2 I would say 1, 2 if you are lucky.
rPi 1 wont be able to stake any coin I am aware of.

Jumbucks Decred Stake Pool update. First of many pool pay outs sent out!


The Jumbucks Decred Stake Pool (http://dcrstakepool.getjumbucks.com), despite launching later than the other pools is currently the 2nd ranked in terms of number of Live tickets.

Today marks an important milestone as it was the first of many pool pay outs.

The Jumbucks Decred Stake Pool (http://dcrstakepool.getjumbucks.com) refunds 2% of pool fees by paying you back in Jumbucks. If you do not add a Jumbucks address, your refund will be forfeited and applied to the overall pool fees.

Collected fees will be periodically calculated and refunds will be processed by selling Decred and buying Jumbucks on the open exchange markets. Refunds will then be sent out over the Jumbucks network.

8.317 DCR was sent and sold on Bittrex.  This amount represents 243 Votes.

The 8.317 DCR was sold for 0.02168031 BTC and then 282.62035056 JBS was bought with that BTC.

Below is the reaction of some happy stakers!

Jumbucks Decred Stake Pool officially open!

Hi all,

If you have been following the altcoin markets lately, then you are probably aware of Decred [$DCR] (https://www.decred.org/); a new hybrid proof of work/proof of stake coin which uses a unique method of ticket purchasing to payout staking rewards in a lottery-type system. $DCR staking revolves around some really impressive multisig cold staking innovations, which allow individuals to securely stake their coins without having their computer on 24/7. This is accomplished through the official Decred stake pools. There will only be a maximum of 10 Decred stake pools, and I am excited to announce that I and @cryptokrill are in charge of one of these official pools.
 
Most of the other Decred stake pools charge a 5 - 7.5% fee for the tickets, which go towards the pool devs and paying server fees for backup voting servers. For the stake pool under our care, we have reworked the traditional fee structure in a way that benefits $JBS holders and grows the Jumbucks community.
 
While our stake pool publically has an 8% fee, it breaks down in the following manner: 4% will be allocated for pool maintenance and server costs (currently 1 web server and 3 geo-located staking servers), 2% will be allocated to a Jumbucks development fund, and 2% will go towards $JBS marketbuys. These $JBS marketbuys will then be rewarded back to the stake pool users periodically.
 
This will make the Jumbucks Community Pool (http://dcrstakepool.getjumbucks.com/) competitive in fees, and the cheapest in terms of straight pool maintenance and sever costs. Furthermore, the overall structure will strengthen the Jumbucks ecosystem through stimulated market activity, rewards to users, and the opportunity to bring new cryptocurrency enthusiasts into the Jumbucks community.
 
As a reminder, 2% of the pool fees will be refunded in $JBS, straight to your Jumbucks wallet. Users who do not enter a Jumbucks address will forfeit their refunds, and the 2% will be applied to the overall pool maintenance fund.
 
Despite launching later than the other Decred staking pools, our pool is already ranked 2nd in terms of live tickets! If you have $DCR and would like to take advantage of its innovative proof of stake system, or if you have $JBS and want to increase your stash, check out http://dcrstakepool.getjumbucks.com and start staking today!
 
Happy DCR staking!

Thanks,
Julian

Jumbucks is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched in September 2014 without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex and Cryptopia.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com/).

Jumbucks Ethereum Edition Testnet introduction

Something I have mentioned is the long term goal of moving to a more active codebase.  This was always the plan and I've mentioned Decred and Ethereum as the best candidates.  Having used Ethereum more in the recent months, I'm leaning heavily towards Ethereum.

The overall goal has been for Jumbucks to be what I call an "Independent chain" as opposed to being a token running on another platform (such as a NXT asset) or protocol which runs on top of Bitcoin.

The current shitcoin PoS code base sucks, etc….  Writing any distributed apps on the shitcoin codebase will always be difficult as the limiting factor is only being able to utilize the OP_RETURN or custom OP codes which are cumbersome to code and likely require hard forks to implement.

Moving to an Ethereum codebase/fork has many advantages.  Myself and Xocel are primarily application developers.  The applications will underpin the value of the Jumbucks blockchain.  Having our own blockchain allows us to make a suite of Dapps which can interact with each other.  Smart contracts don't need to be large monolithic code chunks which has led to issues such as The DAO hack.

Please join us in the #jumbucks channel in Slack to help us test out Jumbucks Ethereum Edition Testnet which is up and running right now... For short, we can call this Jumbucks EE.

In terms of the coin swap process, this will probably involve grabbing a snapshot using a block parser (I have made the necessary code changes for this a while back https://github.com/znort987/blockparser/commit/eb67030e2e01a454da8cc12e750cdfef82ee22dc) of all the Jumbucks addresses.  A claim process which involves signing addresses with the necessary private key for a JBS address can then be performed.  This claim process can start very early where a Jumbucks EE address is reserved and confirmed associated with the signing process.  Something cool is that the Jumbucks EE Genesis block can then be defined and pre-populated with claimed addresses and corresponding balances.

Theoretically we could launch Jumbucks EE tomorrow but that defeats the purpose.  There are also some minor changes/tweaks to the Ethereum codebase which I'd like to put in too which we can test in the Jumbucks EE Testnet.  Expect things to change and for the chain to be wiped away during this Jumbucks EE Testnet testing/evaluating/learning/tweaking phase a few times.

I'd like to have as many people in the Jumbucks community familiar with running Jumbucks EE via the console so that we have a pool of people able to assist and also utilizing these smart contracts and distributed applications.


Jumbucks Ethereum Edition Testnet - Instructions

Download the lastest version (I am using 1.4.10) of Geth for your platform.
Code:
https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/releases

Create a Data Directory. This is so we don't use the default data directory used for Ethereum:
Code:
$ mkdir ~/JumbucksTestnet

Get a copy of the Jumbucks Testnet Genesis block:
Code:
http://getjumbucks.com/download/JumbucksTestnetGenesis.json
Get a copy of the boot nodes:
Code:
http://getjumbucks.com/download/static-nodes.json

Save both files to the Data Directory

Initialize the Data Directory with the Genesis Block:

Code:
$ geth --datadir ~/JumbucksTestnet init ~/JumbucksTestnet/JumbucksTestnetGenesis.json
I0730 23:44:10.031012 ethdb/database.go:82] Alloted 16MB cache and 16 file handles to /home/julian/JumbucksTestnet/chaindata
I0730 23:44:10.046579 cmd/geth/main.go:299] successfully wrote genesis block and/or chain rule set: 868d13655a2c47b4b7dd280e4c928870f208d3074875d41c1b6e771a311cbd7f

Start the console and connect to my boot node:

Code:
$ geth --datadir ~/JumbucksTestnet console
Verify you have my boot node as a peer:

Code:
> admin.peers

Add peer manually:
Code:
> admin.addPeer("enode://13e07d637d170fdf1f87edd3d671c1417acb856045c1920c4c0bca1d9c19be2a846af891d2c92a677cbf66b61586426c7fff8f4247b6912d88a7dbb762e26288@107.191.104.192:30303");

Create a new account:
Code:
> personal.newAccount()

List your accounts:
Code:
> personal.listAccounts
["0x476fd3e95ed3a1e9e764987bff3230b08850fd4d", "0x163430250885b2607857a0f206d51e286543b831"]

Send me your account address for some Testnet coins. You can also try CPU mining.

I deployed the first smart contract on the Jumbucks EE Testnet last night. You can try it out by installing it.

Install and run an existing smart contract

Install contract:

Code:
var greeter2 = eth.contract([{constant:false,inputs:[],name:'kill',outputs:[],type:'function'},{constant:true,inputs:[],name:'greet',outputs:[{name:'',type:'string'}],type:'function'},{inputs:[{name:'_greeting',type:'string'}],type:'constructor'}]).at('0x454f42c9af7e88c2d66c13d069a35e34853f0b35');

Run contract:
Code:
greeter2.greet();

Here's the output tested by another user.

http://i.imgur.com/48r8w5V.png

A couple of quick tips below.

Running on a separate console

On one screen:

Code:
geth --datadir ~/JumbucksTestnet

On another screen:
Code:
geth --datadir ~/JumbucksTestnet/ attach ipc:/Users/julian/JumbucksTestnet/geth.ipc


Print all balances with a JavaScript function

Code:
function checkAllBalances() {
var i =0;
eth.accounts.forEach( function(e){
    console.log("  eth.accounts["+i+"]: " +  e + " \tbalance: " + web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(e), "ether") + " ether");
i++;
})
};

Run it

Code:
> checkAllBalances();
  eth.accounts[0]: 0x476fd3e95ed3a1e9e764987bff3230b08850fd4d balance: 7590508.39832 ether
  eth.accounts[1]: 0x163430250885b2607857a0f206d51e286543b831 balance: 10000.04651996 ether

Unlock and Send

Code:
> eth.accounts
["0x476fd3e95ed3a1e9e764987bff3230b08850fd4d", "0x163430250885b2607857a0f206d51e286543b831"]
> personal.unlockAccount("0x476fd3e95ed3a1e9e764987bff3230b08850fd4d")
Unlock account 0x476fd3e95ed3a1e9e764987bff3230b08850fd4d
> personal.unlockAccount("0x163430250885b2607857a0f206d51e286543b831")

Jumbucks Ethereum Edition?
what?

okay i've read page 9, still fuzzy on this point:

- JBS is a very fine POS chain
- JBS EE is a cool idea
- can we have both?

i hope you favor a snap shot; 2 chains.

maybe require signing to claim the JBS EE, but no swap.  ;)

Jumbucks Ethereum Edition - Alpha 1 released

This can be considered the first "pre-launch" release. We are still in a "Testnet phase" but changes are now in a dedicated Github repository.  Expect this network to have several changes before the actual launch. You can participate in Jumbucks Slack in the #jumbucks channel. Testing is going really well with many participants.

You no longer need to specify a Data directory when starting up the server.

If you have an existing keystore, please put that in the new Data directory.

You can find the release here:

https://github.com/jumbucks/go-jumbucksee/releases/tag/v1.4.10-alpha1

Changes

  • Binary has been changed from geth to gjbsee.
  • JBS EE now has its own dedicated data directory.
  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/JumbucksEE
  • Windows: %APPDATA%\JumbucksEE
  • Unix: ~/.jumbucksee
  • Default TCP port for the HTTP RPC server is now 8588
  • Default TCP port for the websocket RPC server is now 8589
  • Default (relative) name of the IPC RPC socket is now gjbsee.ipc

Initialize the Data Directory with the Genesis Block:

Code:
$ gjbsee init JumbucksTestnetGenesis.json

Move the boot nodes file into the dedicated data directory.

Start the console and connect to my boot node:

Code:

Post by: jyap on August 12, 2016, 08:03:47 AM
I've uploaded and built the Windows binary for Jumbucks Ethereum Edition - Alpha 1. Right now I have my cross compile environment up and running so we'll be able to support basically any architecture such as ARM (Raspberry Pi).

Here are some changes we are discussing:

Coin swap with a higher coin count ratio

For example 1:10.  Right now Jumbucks has 3,602,462 JBS coins minted.  The proposal would then be to increase the coin count proportionally to 36 million (or a different multiple). Purely on a mathematical scale, this doesn't change a thing in that you still have a same percentage. What changes is perception and actual use of the coin. A higher coin count works out better for distribution as there are more "full units" to disburse.

A new name with newly associated paradigms

This would be worthwhile at this stage since we are also making core changes to the coin.

Feel free to post your suggestions in this thread. Something cool would be a coin name and paired with an associated name for the coin units, for example "Ethereum" and "Ethers" or "Factom" and "Factoids".

zkSNARKs in Ethereum

This was recently published: https://z.cash/blog/zksnarks-in-ethereum.html

Adding zkSNARKs in a JBS EE would require "extending the Ethereum contract language to efficiently support verification of zkSNARK proofs. Specifically, we added a snarkverify precompile (like an opcode) to a fork of Parity which uses libsnark to verify generic proofs." As this requires modifying the underlying client/server code, this is something we could support and would make our chain unique.

Parity client

This is another "nice to have" feature but would benefit smaller embedded systems a lot.

Parity is an alternative Ethereum client written in Rust which is generally a faster systems level language compared to Go (which is what Geth is written in). Overall, it should use less resources.

Parity is fairly recently released which is why less people use it... But yeah, Geth was an early client.

You can run Parity in "--geth" mode with no issues. It just exposes a compatible communications mechanism that Geth uses.

I've set up a test pool at 104.207.133.114 (http://104.207.133.114/#/)
I invite anyone with a rig to try it out. If you have any problems, please join the slack (http://slack.getjumbucks.com) and get in touch with me or in the #jumbucks channel.
Also, add the pool node if you can, it helps payment processing.

Easter Egg

This contract is on the JBS EE Testnet.

Contract mined! address: 0x62718f95b5dfc6f92a09f7cee5a2ed5077708e54 transactionHash: 0x02f13efd029f0a696770050d7cac5c7b6f29ecb8e330e8f53f815b77cc69d014

Install contract:

Code:
var greeter2 = eth.contract([{constant:false,inputs:[],name:'kill',outputs:[],type:'function'},{constant:true,inputs:[],name:'greet',outputs:[{name:'',type:'string'}],type:'function'},{inputs:[{name:'_greeting',type:'string'}],type:'constructor'}]).at('0x62718f95b5dfc6f92a09f7cee5a2ed5077708e54');

Run contract:

Code:
greeter2.greet();

Don't tell anyone after you read it so they can find it for themselves. :)

I have mist running on the JBSEE testnet chain.

http://i.imgur.com/idaCMId.png

I still have a lot of work to do on the code. Obviously renaming, but I cant reveal the new name just yet ;P
As well as removing all of the daofork code, a few other tweaks, and possibly some additions.

But things are coming along nicely

Token contract installed on JBS EE Testnet

I've deployed a Token contracts on the JBS EE Testnet.

Install Token contract:

Code:
token = eth.contract([{constant:false,inputs:[{name:'receiver',type:'address'},{name:'amount',type:'uint256'}],name:'sendCoin',outputs:[{name:'sufficient',type:'bool'}],type:'function'},{constant:true,inputs:[{name:'',type:'address'}],name:'coinBalanceOf',outputs:[{name:'',type:'uint256'}],type:'function'},{inputs:[{name:'supply',type:'uint256'}],type:'constructor'},{anonymous:false,inputs:[{indexed:false,name:'sender',type:'address'},{indexed:false,name:'receiver',type:'address'},{indexed:false,name:'amount',type:'uint256'}],name:'CoinTransfer',type:'event'}]).at('0xe5b45a5c9adbd078161d9d2cff4816e8f82d9455')

I've sent some tokens to Testnet users so you can check your balance with the following (replace with your address):

Code:
token.coinBalanceOf("0x476fd3e95ed3a1e9e764987bff3230b08850fd4d")

Something we will do on the Live network is deploy a Global Registrar contract. This is similar to DNS or other name lookup systems.

This will allow Token names to be associated with contract Addresses.

Jumbucks Ethereum Edition - Alpha 2 released

Here we present you the second "pre-launch" release. This release comes with lots of polish and some protocol changes.

JBS EE has now been modified to run with 88 seconds block times as the target with 8 coin rewards.

This is running really well as we can see some current blocks and times now that difficulty has leveled off:
Code:
22:07:04.148341 - Block 950 [86150be1 / 86150be1]
22:08:45.275130 - Block 951 [9d34f0ea / 9d34f0ea]
22:09:53.300668 - Block 952 [7d9ded50 / 7d9ded50]
22:11:19.321095 - Block 953 [8c053e60 / 8c053e60]

If you are running Alpha 1, please delete everything in your data directory except for the keystore directory.

This Alpha 2 release has the Genesis Block and Boot node built in. Just run it.

Testnet addresses will have Testnet coins already pre-allocated in the Genesis block.

The Alpha 2 changes are incompatible with the Alpha 1 network.

Expect this network to have several changes before the actual launch. You can participate in Jumbucks Slack in the #jumbucks channel. Testing is going really well with many participants.

Serial alt coin developers, experimenting in public and transference of value

Serial alt coin developers

There are many parallels with this crypto game in other known microcosms such as the drug game we see portrayed in serial cop dramas such as The Wire.

In this game there are many unstated rules but what they come down to is ethics, doing the right thing and general respect for other peoples time and money.

We understand that many of the players in this game are in certain positions such as exchanges, developers and traders. Those in the role of an exchange could basically screw us at any time by stealing which would totally violate any assumed code.  For developers, there are many grey areas which are often times "accepted" but are not definitely a violation of the code.  This would include the concept of the "serial alt coin developer".

The serial alt coin developer is one which divides their time and efforts between avoiding the coins they have made and launched in the past, and ones that they are about to make.

This is something which never sat well with me. It has never been acceptable to me. Consider it my way of respecting the game and the respective players.

When I set out to make a coin and put my name to it, I did. And to this day I have never launched another coin and been solely focused on one.

Experimenting in public

There are ways to experiment in public.  Right now we are running a live Testnet for the next incarnation of Jumbucks. A key point is that this Testnet allows us to learn, rapidly test and experiment but in now way could it cause financial harm as there is no value added to the coins.

Experimenting by launching multiple coins is deeply disrespectful to those to put in money.  At the end of the day, an abandoned coin is lost money.  There can be hopes of a revival but the damage has been done.  A coin with no focused development is one which can only be one filled with empty promises and story telling.

Transference of value

This shouldn't be a common occurrence but we faced a brick wall in terms of development that the code base we were running on wasn't actively worked on by multiple people world wide.  Ultimately it is a stale codebase which had current issues but would never be updated.

If we were serial alt coin developers we would have launched a new experiment in public with no recourse or reflection that we were creating "just another coin".

What we will do instead is respect the money and value that people have put into the coin, and by transferring value to a new chain we aren't screwing people over.

So while there are cut and dry violations of the game such as the recent Bitfinex hack incident, developers will tend to always tread that fine line of being a scammer and on that one that is genuinely trying something which might work out.

In summary, I feel that respect for this crypto game comes down to some obvious plays for me.

Namely:

  • Not creating multiple alt coins which allows focus of developments to pass through to a common good
  • Not conducting nonsensical value based experiments in public and respecting other peoples money.
  • Transferring and retaining value on everything we do so that value can only grow and expand.

Jumbucks Releases The Exclusive Crypto Community Cards

Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is proud to announce the release of their Crypto Community Cards project.  Crypto Community Cards is a unique product that can only be purchased with Jumbucks, through the website of launch partner Cryptochips.net (http://cryptochips.net/).  This product was created by the Jumbucks' team as a fun and promotional product, for the whole cryptocurrency community.  We hope you embrace this initiative, and we look forward to meeting your interest with even more Community Card sets in the future!

"Community Cards are a fun way to introduce your friends that are new to crypto, to the wealth of notable personalities who have made an impact on this revolutionary technology.  Trade, collect, and share - This is crypto!"
@cryptokrill


Cryptocurrencies at their heart are intended to be mediums of exchange for goods and services, however oftentimes, this simple factor is forgotten.  If there is no demand or value placed on holding a particular cryptocurrency then its value naturally declines.  The goal of every cryptocurrency should be to work towards establishing an intrinsic  value, such that the marketplace begins to depend upon its very  existence.

Twitter user @cryptokrill first mentioned the idea of crypto trading cards to me just a short while after Jumbucks' launch.  In light of the vast array of cryptocurrency celebrities and personalities, I thought his idea was the perfect way to create memorabilia marking this exciting time in history. Because time and innovation move so swiftly in the world of cryptocurrency, the names and faces you know today might be completely forgotten by tomorrow, or they just might turn out to be the great leaders of a brave new future. Crypto Community Cards ensure that the excitement of these days will not be forgotten.


Our team worked together  to brainstorm and plan out each detail of this project., and along the way we created a spreadsheet of over 100 people in the cryptocurrency world and went through several card designs.

In the end, and after weeks of development, we came up with 100 packs of 5 cards each which will make up the  initial batch for sale to the public.  The first set has a unique card for each of the following individuals: Gavin Andresen, Mark Karpeles, Jordan Fish, Andreas M. Antonopoulos and Charlie Shrem.

Each card is printed on ultra thick 16pt card stock, is full color on both sides, and is polished off with  a UV coated glossy finish.  These cards are made with the highest quality, and so are perfect for collecting!  The front of each card features a colorful depiction of a crypto community member with a brief bio and quotation on the back.  To complete the experience of opening a new pack of cards, each set is wrapped in beautiful foil packaging.


We encourage the community to give us their feedback on the Cryto Community Cards.  We have a wealth of great ideas for future printings, and future sets are planned with additional features to enhance  the collectible value of each card.

The Crypto Community Cards are a great way to spread  word of cryptocurrencies to your friends and family, and they are set to launch just before Thanksgiving so that orders made today will arrive before Christmas!

This project was brought to you by the following people who helped contribute to its creation: @cryptokrill, @Sicarious_, @sasankansony, @yakpimp, and Jumbuck's developer, @jyap.

In the end we are excited and proud to bring the world a unique product that cannot simply be replicated.  A lot of effort, cost, and time went into these cards to ensure that we were bringing something unique to the community, and not simply slapping the Jumbucks logo on hats, shirts, or keychains from a manufacturing wholesaler.  Collecting coins goes hand-in-hand with collecting cards. It is our hope that the community embraces this project sot hat we can make reprints of the first set, and produce even more unique sets for people to enjoy! Who knows, one of these future sets might feature you.

Jumbucks (http://getjumbucks.com) is a Fair Launch cryptocurrency which launched without an IPO and with zero premine.  Jumbucks currently runs as 100% Proof of Stake, and is currently traded on Bittrex, Cryptsy and will be available at launch on the upcoming AltMarket.com.  Find out more information at GetJumbucks.com (http://getjumbucks.com).

The first set is available for purchase NOW on Cryptochips.net (http://cryptochips.net/)!
interesting concept, maybe I'll see it soon

New difficulty adjustment algorithm

One of the code changes we will definitely be implementing with JBS EE is a new difficulty adjustment algorithm.

As a background, the Ethereum protocol is set to adjust its mining difficulty (https://reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/3tbwbo/planned_homestead_hard_fork_changes/cx8sluv) so that it targets a 15 second block time.  The formula that it uses isn't very complicated but the main inputs it takes are the the parent block time, parent block difficulty and the block time of the recently found block.  The difficulty algorithm makes fractional adjustments either up or down depending on whether the block is above or below the target time.

At a large scale this works just fine and with sufficient hash, this gives sufficient security. With a relatively stable hash rate, the difference in block time with 15 second blocks is negligible.  Proportionally, it's not as discernible when the block time is 7 seconds or 20 seconds over the span of a few hours.  Small fractional difficulty adjustments however become greatly amplified when you have a longer block time.

Where you run into issues with this difficulty adjustment approach is a) Smaller hash rate b) Greater fluctuations in network hash rate due to Smaller hash rate c) Longer block times.  Longer block times mean that any fractional adjustments (found in the Ethereum protocol) do not adequately compensate for changes in hash rate in a timely enough basis.  You end up with very fast or very slow blocks.  This is commonly referred to as instamining (fast blocks) or slow stuck blocks.

Provisional code changes have been made and are in the testing phase for a new difficulty adjustment algorithm for the JBS EE chain.  This will be a first for Ethereum fork which have comparatively made adjustments to the parameters to the existing Ethereum difficulty adjustment.

We will take into account the difficulty window of a range of past blocks when calculating the difficulty change.  Every modern difficulty algorithm such as Dark Gravity Wave v3, DigiShield v3, Monero and Kimoto's Gravity Well all work on the principle of making adjustments according to a difficulty windows of past blocks. Below is the output of some testing log lines which shows the refactored code processing the headers of the past 10 blocks when running the difficulty calculation function.


This will allow us to write a more modern difficulty adjustment algorithm similar to other blockchains which have taken in the lessons of multipools and 51% attacks.

In summary, the Ethereum protocol difficulty adjustment is inadequate for our needs.  The JBS EE chain will have a more accurate difficulty targeting algorithm suitable for an 88 second block time, will be able to handle fluctuations in hash rate more effectively and these changes will also ultimately bring more security to the chain.

* This is a good thread which discusses some modern difficulty adjustment issues https://github.com/zcash/zcash/issues/147

New difficulty adjustment algorithm update

I'm currently working on porting the Digishield v3 difficulty adjustment algorithm to an Ethereum code base. Need to port some additional functions from Bitcoin over such as BIP 113 "Median time-past as endpoint for lock-time calculations" https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0113.mediawiki

This is a pretty standard and "safe" difficulty algorithm as it has a fixed up and down adjustment percentage and mostly works based on time and difficulty medians.

This algorithm was also chosen for Zcash after they evaluated a few options.

Ported over BIP 113 tonight. Looks to be working well.  Hopefully I can finish the the diff algo shortly and have a new Alpha network up and running very soon.  I'll be running some tests of adding and removing hash to see how the difficulty compensates. I'll probably try and simulate some 51% attacks too to see where the potential weaknesses are.

alright i have the new difficulty adjustment pretty much working. simulated the numbers against the existing running testnet chain and it looks good.

need to double check my numbers/formulas and clean up some code and push out the next alpha release.

Reducing Uncle rewards

Here is something I am strongly considering as well. With a larger block time network lag shouldn't be as much as an issue. There should also be far fewer orphaned/uncle blocks so the current reward scheme seems excessive.

Currently we have under Ethereum:
The miner will also receive an award of 1/32 per Uncle block included. Uncles are stale blocks with parents that are a maximum of six blocks back from the present block. Valid Uncle blocks are rewarded to halt network lag (time to propagate a valid block to the whole network). Uncles included in a block receive 7/8 of the static block reward – or 4.375 Ether- with a maximum of 2 Uncles allowed per block.

The paper Uncle Mining, an Ethereum Consensus Protocol Flaw (https://bitslog.wordpress.com/2016/04/28/uncle-mining-an-ethereum-consensus-protocol-flaw/) suggests "Reduce the maximum uncle reward to 1/2."

New difficulty adjustment algorithm update - Working great

As an update the difficulty algo is working great in my own private testing against the currently running Alpha chain.

Below is an example.


In the example you can see the current Difficulty calculation is shown as "CalcDifficulty" and the new algo is "CalcDifficulty2" with extra debugging lines.

As mentioned in previous posts, the current difficulty algo for Ethereum and forks is very simple and just looks at the previous block time. In this example the difficulty slightly increases as the previous block was found under the target time of 88 seconds.

The new algorithm inspects a defined window of 21 blocks, which with 88 second block times defines the setting AveragingWindowTimespan as a baseline.  This gives FAR greater difficulty adjustment accuracy as we are looking back at a window of an average 30.8 minutes.  If there is a large hash rate increase the longer window means we can more accurately compensate and prevent instamining and 51% attacks.

Expect a new Alpha build very soon which will include an all new difficulty algorithm based on Digibyte's Digishield. All new code and a first for Ethereum clones!

Jumbucks Ethereum Edition - Alpha 3 released

Here we present you the third "pre-launch" release. This is the best release yet and comes complete with hours of development work and testing in the newly implemented Difficulty adjustment algorithm for this Ethereum fork.

This release has quite a bit of extra debugging in the console, especially when new blocks are found. Also as there is new code that is still in testing, we are keeping it closed source until it's closer to release time.

We are also researching further changes which could assist in preventing malicious 51% attacks on the network.

This Alpha 3 is running really well as we can see the difficulty retargeting of a recent block:

Code:
I0907 22:38:21.676831 core/block_validator.go:338] parentNumber: 458 parentDiff %!(EXTRA *big.Int=488558)
I0907 22:38:21.676960 core/block_validator.go:354] CalcDifficulty2 nActualTimespan = 2108  before dampening
I0907 22:38:21.676975 core/block_validator.go:361] CalcDifficulty2 nActualTimespan = 1913  before bounds
I0907 22:38:21.676986 core/block_validator.go:371] CalcDifficulty2 nActualTimespan = 1913 up or down
I0907 22:38:21.676996 core/block_validator.go:374] parentDiff:488558
I0907 22:38:21.677006 core/block_validator.go:375] AveragingWindowTimespan:1848
I0907 22:38:21.677015 core/block_validator.go:378] parentDiff * AveragingWindowTimespan:902855184
I0907 22:38:21.677024 core/block_validator.go:381] x / nActualTimespan:471957

In this example, the difficulty algorithm looks back at a window of 21 blocks (21 block * 88 second block times = AveragingWindowTimespan:1848) and is able to compensate based on that.  As the calculated timespan observed (nActualTimespan) is 1913 seconds, the algorithm intelligently DECREASES the difficulty from 488558 to 471957.

We have been performing some tests with scaling the hash rate up and down, renting hash rate and observing.

If you are running Alpha 1 or 2, please delete everything in your data directory except for the keystore directory.

This Alpha 3 release has the Genesis Block and Boot node built in. Just run it.

Testnet addresses will have Testnet coins already pre-allocated in the Genesis block.

The Alpha 3 changes are incompatible with the Alpha 1 and 2 network.

Expect this network to have several changes before the actual launch. You can participate in Jumbucks Slack in the #jumbucks channel. Testing is going really well with many participants.

You can find the release here:

https://github.com/jumbucks/go-jumbucksee/releases/tag/1.4.11-alpha3

Changes

  • Upgrade codebase to upstream Geth 1.4.11
  • Modify block reward. Now 8 coins per block. This change wasn't committed in Alpha 2.
  • Reduce rewards for including uncles in blocks.
  • This eliminates a possible attack vector in targeting the mining of uncles.
  • Modify Difficulty calculation to be based on Digibyte's Digishield. This is a huge improvement over the current Ethereum Difficulty calculation, especially for longer block times.
  • Implement CalcPastMedianTime (BIP 113)

In this screen shot below, I rented some hash for 12 hours and pointed it at a pool.

Targeting for 88 second block times is working extremely well.

As mentioned in my previous post, we are also researching further changes which could assist in preventing malicious 51% attacks on the network.

One of these happens to be hard coded checkpoints. This is something which exists in Bitcoin and hard coded checkpoints would just be manual coded points in time.

It's strange that Ethereum doesn't have this already (or maybe I haven't looked far enough in the code) but it can help in the case of an unforeseen fork.

"Other" checkpoints which are more centralized in nature would require more thought/code and tend be semi-controversial.

Vitalik tweeted something recently (https://twitter.com/VitalikButerin/status/772619351534940161):

If the centralized checkpoints confirm months of existing decentralized consensus, then imo they are totally okay

Essentially this is what we are trying to achieve while avoiding any scenario/solution that is overly centralized.

This will just be PoW for now.

We will definitely be considering all options in the future such as full PoS and PoW/PoS hybrid.

Easiest anti 51% attack protection :

Don't allow more than X blocks from the same node / same coinbase address at an interval of X minutes... No need to fuss with checkpoints,  checkpoint server etc..  Keep it simple.

Hi Bitice,

You can keep staking until the swap.

Briefly there will be 2 methods for swapping. Claiming or using an exchange which will perform a claim and adjust on-exchange balances accordingly.

The off-exchange claim process will involve and consist of:

  • Generating receiving address/addresses (a fork of the MyEtherWallet web site will be provided to generate addresses)
  • An online form to enter JBS addresses mapped to a receiving JBS EE address
  • This form will be provided in both clear net URL and TOR URL form to retain anonymity
  • You will need to sign a message to prove ownership of the JBS address
  • JBS address balances will be snapshot at a defined block. This prevents double claims
  • JBS EE balances will be programmed into the Genesis Block of the JBS EE chain. Be a part of history!
  • You will be able to perform a claim at a later date as well after the network has been launched. The intention is not to screw people over with a claim process with a short time window
  • At some point we intend to send any unclaimed funds to a multisig address which will require multiple party approval to process any later claims

There will be further details in the upcoming PRE-ANN thread.

We intend to make this claim process as transparent as possible and it can therefore be audited on the blockchain

To maintain a healthy staking network we recommend people participate in the off-exchange claim process for the bulk of their holdings

You may want to consolidate some of your holdings to a smaller number of JBS addresses leading up to the swap

This question has come up a few times.

Will JBS EE switch to 100% Proof of Stake when Ethereum's Proof of Stake Casper is released?

A switch to PoS isn't definite but we will evaluate and monitor Ethereum's Proof of Stake when it is released and had time to iron out any issues that may arise. A switch to PoS depends on the overall health of the JBS EE network and other factors such as ongoing distribution. It can make sense to just stay on PoW or a hybrid PoW/PoS network.

Another thing to factor in is that when Ethereum switches to PoS there will be excess mining capacity, so that can be another pro for sticking with PoW or a PoW/PoS hybrid.

Exponentially Subjective Scoring & Entering the final phases for Launch

So here's something I alluded to in a previous post. I wanted to take a look at eliminating the possibility of a long range re-org attack on the chain as this has been observed in other Ethereum forks.  Ultimately the best security for proof of work is having "sufficient" hash rate such that such an attack reaches the point of "not being feasible." The first idea I had for this was setting a limit on re-org depth, say 1 day. This solution on the surface seemed simple.. a little too simple so I sent Vitalik an email to see if he had any thoughts.

Here is Vitalik's reply:

Quote
The problem with limiting reorg depth to 1 day is that there's an attack vector where someone does a 51% attack that some nodes will see as being 1 day - 1 second and some nodes will see as being 1 day + 1 second, leading to a permanent split. One approach that could work is what I call "exponentially subjective scoring", which is defined as follows:

* Suppose that you are on a chain with score S1 (score = total difficulty). Suppose that there appears a new longer chain.
* Compute the "common ancestor" of the two chains; say that this ancestor has a score of S_a.
* Switch to the new chain only if (S2 - S_a) / (S1 - S_a) > 1.0001 ** (number of seconds between when S1 was received and when S2 was received)

The intention here is that you have a scoring mechanism which prevents long reorgs, as a reorg from one day ago would be penalized by a factor of 5650, but at the same time is friendly to timing discrepancies between nodes as if two nodes saw some block even one minute away then the chains would need to be almost exactly the same length for nodes to disagree as to the correct head of the chain.

I'd actually be quite excited to see this kind of mechanism tried out in a chain.

Exponentially Subjective Scoring is also further mentioned in this article that Vitalik wrote November 2014 - https://blog.ethereum.org/2014/11/25/proof-stake-learned-love-weak-subjectivity/

I'm pleased to say that I have coded this up and it works great. Here are some log lines which demonstrate this. ESS is basically another check which decides whether or not a re-org should take place.

Code:

The above lines are additional debug lines which I which are from a live test I did on the Testnet.  It's slightly confusing so here is a re-written version in Go which outlines the function using the exact figures from above.

"math"
"math/big"
)

func main() {

now := big.NewInt(1474714747)
S_a := big.NewInt(1723872944000)
S1 := big.NewInt(1723889324851)
S2 := big.NewInt(1723905670322)
S1_time := big.NewInt(1474714358)

// (S2 - S_a) / (S1 - S_a)
a := new(big.Int)
b := new(big.Int)
a.Sub(S2, S_a)
b.Sub(S1, S_a)
c := float64(a.Uint64()) / float64(b.Uint64())
fmt.Println("c: ", c)

// 1.0001 ** (now - S1_time)
d := math.Pow(1.0001, float64(now.Uint64())-float64(S1_time.Uint64()))
fmt.Println("d:", d)

// Comparison
if c > d {
fmt.Println("Reorg")
} else {
fmt.Println("No reorg")
}
}

The output is as follows.

Code:
c:  1.9978401610514618
d: 1.0396644897858596
Reorg

This code change actually took a bit longer as it required a lot of testing and learning how Ethereum handles new blocks being processed and the different scenarios. i.e. had to run through a lot of the following cases:

1 new block comes in
2 new blocks come in
3+ new blocks come in
1 new mined block pushed out the network
2 new mined blocks pushed out to the network
3+ new mined blocks pushed out the network

So most of the work was actually figuring out how block processing works and testing the scenarios and thinking more about "when should this be checked?" and further thinking of other cases where it could go wrong.


So just to re-cap JBSEE will come out with 2 new consensus level changes.  These are:

Exponentially Subjective Scoring - A deterministic scoring system when comparing two chains. The longer the reorg, the higher penalization, and the less likely the new chain will become the main chain. It is more expensive to attack a well publicized good chain.

Rewritten difficulty algorithm based on Digibyte's Digishield V3 - Difficulty algorithm that is battle tested on numerous coins and is far better suited to longer block times and fluctuations in hash rate.

It is also worth noting that no other Ethereum fork has the level of new code and consensus changes that the JBSEE network will have.


Here are the priority items in the next few weeks. It is a tight deadline but we are aiming for a launch of the network before October 11th next month.

Launch of new coin

All the technical details set and we are co-ordinating with exchanges.

PRE-ANN thread

The details are being written up. This will be up shortly.

Swap system

This has been outlined in a previous post and will again be outlined in the PRE-ANN. The sites for a non-exchange swap are being completed.

Code modifications

These are complete for the launch. We are also thinking of paying a Geth dev to code review the new code changes I have made just to have another pair of eyes go through the code.

Logo and branding

The new logo and name has been chosen.

Exponentially Subjective Scoring & Entering the final phases for Launch

So here's something I alluded to in a previous post. I wanted to take a look at eliminating the possibility of a long range re-org attack on the chain as this has been observed in other Ethereum forks.  Ultimately the best security for proof of work is having "sufficient" hash rate such that such an attack reaches the point of "not being feasible." The first idea I had for this was setting a limit on re-org depth, say 1 day. This solution on the surface seemed simple.. a little too simple so I sent Vitalik an email to see if he had any thoughts.

Here is Vitalik's reply:

Quote
The problem with limiting reorg depth to 1 day is that there's an attack vector where someone does a 51% attack that some nodes will see as being 1 day - 1 second and some nodes will see as being 1 day + 1 second, leading to a permanent split. One approach that could work is what I call "exponentially subjective scoring", which is defined as follows:

* Suppose that you are on a chain with score S1 (score = total difficulty). Suppose that there appears a new longer chain.
* Compute the "common ancestor" of the two chains; say that this ancestor has a score of S_a.
* Switch to the new chain only if (S2 - S_a) / (S1 - S_a) > 1.0001 ** (number of seconds between when S1 was received and when S2 was received)

The intention here is that you have a scoring mechanism which prevents long reorgs, as a reorg from one day ago would be penalized by a factor of 5650, but at the same time is friendly to timing discrepancies between nodes as if two nodes saw some block even one minute away then the chains would need to be almost exactly the same length for nodes to disagree as to the correct head of the chain.

I'd actually be quite excited to see this kind of mechanism tried out in a chain.

Exponentially Subjective Scoring is also further mentioned in this article that Vitalik wrote November 2014 - https://blog.ethereum.org/2014/11/25/proof-stake-learned-love-weak-subjectivity/

I'm pleased to say that I have coded this up and it works great. Here are some log lines which demonstrate this. ESS is basically another check which decides whether or not a re-org should take place.

Interesting project.

 Correct me where Im wrong...
You are changing algo to the forked eth algo
Name change
Equal swap out
Pow only until eth writes the casper code for pos
Basically like exp? Kr? Shift? Soil?

Thanks

Hi, here is a previous response I wrote to that question here on September 12 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=865169.msg16230472#msg16230472

For the near term (at least 1 year) we intend on being Proof of Work.

Re-written now that the new name Ubiq is public:


This question has come up a few times.

Will Ubiq switch to 100% Proof of Stake when Ethereum's Proof of Stake Casper is released?

A switch to PoS isn't definite but we will evaluate and monitor Ethereum's Proof of Stake when it is released and had time to iron out any issues that may arise. A switch to PoS depends on the overall health of the Ubiq network and other factors such as ongoing distribution. It can make sense to just stay on PoW or a hybrid PoW/PoS network.

Another thing to factor in is that when Ethereum switches to PoS there will be excess mining capacity, so that can be another pro for sticking with PoW or a PoW/PoS hybrid.

Why would anyone use this instead of ETC?

This coin differs from ETC by having a fair distribution of coins. There is no developer premine, no funds obtained from exploits and no issues with replay attacks.
Also the improvements to the consensus systems will help with securing the chain and providing confirmations to exchanges. I wouldn't be surprised to see these improvements merged to other ethereum code bases

What is this coin for? How anyone can use it?

The coin is a currency for a lasting community from early in the altcoin days, jumbucks gets used quite regularly for tipping and friendly bets in the slack. Their have been several beta apps for the old code base that proved to be limited by the bitcoin code base to warrant further development. So in addition to the contracts developed in solidity being used, there will be several existing apps rewritten and services in place to provide value and use cases.

As you can see in block explorer Top 100 addresses have 98.27% of coins.

You only need 2,000 coins to be in your top 100, haha

I don't really think jambucks is such a good invesment there is not so much interest in it. Just look at this thread and its 2 years old...

I don't really think jambucks is such a good invesment there is not so much interest in it. Just look at this thread and its 2 years old...
I never have even heard of this coin till a little while ago.

bitcointalk is dying. your post shows why. projects have moved off bct in record numbers. there is no life on bct and its full of sock puppets pumping their own holdings while talking trash on others

This is true. Jumbucks/Ubiq has an active life outside of Bitcointalk. Most "active" coin threads in BCT are people just having conversation style chats... Which works better in something like Slack or IRC. Small side effect is the BCT thread doesn't get bumped as much.

Thanks for your replies.  I came here so I didn't have to set up new accounts and find people in the latest social media buzzword of the day.
What I can't understand is why my coinomi wallet depends on one server. For the transaction to get so many confirmations shows the network is up, so what's coinomis problem?  I think I'll just hold coins at bittrex in future,  rather than search for the elusive multi currency wallet.
Thanks again.

hey nbruce,

coinomi runs on a modified electrum server. unfortunately us VERY slow and often has issues which requires it to re-sync from scratch.. this take a long time.

I'm sync'ing it up now. it'll be a while.

see below

Mentioned a few days ago in Slack:

quick update on development.
 - Geth 1.5 is out with some new features. I'll look to port Ubiq to use this codebase.
 - Going to take a look at implementing some monetary policy for mining.
 - ETH hard fork is in 4.7 days. Going to observe that goes OK with no issues.
 - Schedule launch and other items.

Planning to release a new Testnet around < 24 hrs from now. There will be new binaries.

This is also planned to be the final Testnet release so consider it a final Beta release as well

Main changes are:

  • Based on the latest geth 1.5.x
  • Some minor code clean up and changes.
  • Now known as gubiq (instead of gjbsee). Repo link: https://github.com/ubiq/go-ubiq/
  • Live testing of monetary policy block rewards (this is opposed to Ethereum and other forks which have a fixed block reward). For now this steps down from 8 to 5 in increments of 1000 blocks. This will be modified in the main network. so in Testnet:
    • blocks 1-1000 = 8 UBQ
    • blocks 1001-2000 = 7 UBQ
    • blocks 2001-3000 = 6 UBQ
    • blocks 3001 onwards = 5 UBQ
  • I ran some tests last night and things look good.

Some log lines:

Code:
AccumulateRewards block number: 995 Rewards: 8
AccumulateRewards block number: 996 Rewards: 8
AccumulateRewards block number: 997 Rewards: 8
AccumulateRewards block number: 998 Rewards: 8
AccumulateRewards block number: 999 Rewards: 8
AccumulateRewards block number: 1000 Rewards: 8
AccumulateRewards block number: 1001 Rewards: 7
AccumulateRewards block number: 1002 Rewards: 7
AccumulateRewards block number: 1003 Rewards: 7
...
AccumulateRewards block number: 1999 Rewards: 7
AccumulateRewards block number: 2000 Rewards: 7
AccumulateRewards block number: 2001 Rewards: 6
AccumulateRewards block number: 2002 Rewards: 6
AccumulateRewards block number: 2003 Rewards: 6

Started porting some changes to a mining pool as well:

Final Testnet was launched the other night.

It is ready for testing: https://github.com/ubiq/go-ubiq/releases/tag/v1.5.4-BETA

Successfully transitioning from block 1000 to block 1001 with a different reward.

Main network launch and swap

Looking to set a date next month bruv.


Other updates

EIP155 (replay protection)

Yes!

Since Ubiq will run of of the forked Geth 1.5.x it features Ethereum hard fork No. 4 containing EIP155 (replay protection)! There will be no replay attacks!

Ubiq will launch with a unique ChainID of 8 to conform with EIP155 (replay protection).

Slack

The Slack sign up was taken down around Thanksgiving. Here is the New Slack sign up link. Over 700 registered! http://slack.ubiqsmart.com

Now with recaptcha and that "community guidelines" checkbox.

Jumbucks is pretty popular. I was talking about JBS in the rchain slack today. Rchain is trying to upgrade their coin to Ethereum as well.

This isn't an ICO. It's the date for the swap from the current Jumbucks network to the new Ubiq network. The Ubiq network will also be launched on that date.

More details here:

A new ANN thread will be posted shortly as well.

Thanks.
