1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Darkcoin airdrop (cancelled) on: April 07, 2014, 04:49:41 AM
The first 24 hours of the coins existence keep causing us problems, an "airdrop" could be a solution to this. We could airdrop all holders (uniquely verified) with a equal portion of coin. This coin would come from a block in the future that paid 2 million+ coins to a specific address that I hold. We could use some kind of verification system like mastercoin (http://mastercoin-faucet.com/github-intro)
The airdrop would be a month or so into the future, so it would give users time to buy coins and become holders creating some demand. Also, we'd have a much larger market cap and the argument about the first 24 hours would become invalid.

How would you get a part of the airdrop?

- You must own 100DRK ( if you're new to Darkcoin but want to be part of the drop, you would need to purchase 100DRK ).

One of the following:
- Github: To redeem this reward, you need either at least three public repositories and your account must be older than August 1, 2013
- Reddit: To redeem this reward, you need a Reddit account with more than 100 karma.
- Bitcointalk: To redeem this reward you need an activity score above 10 as well as at least 10 posts

Any of these accounts would need to be created before April 1, 2014.


Vote!


Sorry, this was a terrible idea.

Should we change the name/logo/everything for Darkcoin to rebrand to something friendlier?

Change the reward schedule?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Darkcoin Logo Design on: March 11, 2014, 09:27:19 PM
Here's the current logo for Darkcoin and it's vectorized version. Should we change it? If we do, we're going to use something like 99designs to have a competition and have the community design what the resulting logo will be.

High Detail Logo:


Vectorized (For icons and websites)



6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN][DRK] DarkCoin | DarkSend Anonymous Technology Pre-Alpha Launch on: February 15, 2014, 07:23:00 PM
Testing commences at 7PM EST tonight, come join us!

The public testing and improvement phase of the DarkSend technology officially begins right now Smiley .

Add these lines to your configuration:

Code:
addnode=54.80.16.112
testnet=1
debug=1

This is alpha software, expect bugs and other problems. Just report the bugs you find and we’ll take care of them.

You can begin by reading the instructions below, there’s a bit of a learning curve because this works very differently from the way normal transactions work.

DarkSend uses a pool of transactions, currently POOL_MAX_TRANSACTIONS is set to 3. This means it will wait for 3 transactions before “darksending” them. Being that you can only send 1 transaction through the pool at a time, you will need to wait for someone else on the network to send another darksend transaction. If you don't want to wait, you can send multiple darksend transactions with multiple clients.

There are 3 new commands that are added to the API. To test these features from the QT client, open the debug console:

  • darksend Xaddress amount  : Add transaction to the darksend pool. This returns the current sessionID
  • getpoolinfo pool_no: Show pools current status
  • getdarksendtxid sessionID: After a DarkSend round completes this will return the TxID

Code:

2= accepting inputs, 3 = accepting outputs, 4=signing,  5=transmission
{
    "state" : 2,
    "session_id": 1005,                      
    "pooled_inputs" : 0,
    "pooled_outputs" : 0,
    "pooled_signatures" : 0,
    "my_transactions" : 0
}

Known issues:
  • Sent inputs go into unconfirmed: The input value - the value you sent will appear as “unconfirmed” until the next block is mined. Just ignore it

-------- Want coins to send? -------------

Post your testnet address or mine some blocks. Blocks are set to mature with 3 confirmations, so it shouldn’t take long to get coins.

--------- Addresses to send to -----------------------------

Any testnet address will work with darksend, but you can use any of the following if you don’t want to generate them.

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN][XCO] DarkCoin EC2 Mining Image and Tutorial on: January 30, 2014, 02:46:50 PM
DarkCoin (DRK)



How to launch EC2 instances to mine Darkcoin


I made an EC2-AMI with roughly my settings for mining DarkCoin. This is the cheapest and easiest way I've found to mine, and it's pretty easy. Here's a short walkthrough of how to get up and running:


1.) Open an EC2 account
2.) Go to aws.amazon.com, click EC2, then "Spot Requests", click "Request Spot Instance"
3.) Change region to N. Virginia at the top right corner
4.) On the left side, click "Community AMIs" and search for "ami-afebd5c6"
5.) It should say Darkcoin-Public-Miner, Click "Select"
6.) Click "Compute Optimized", then find c1.xlarge, then "Configure Instance Details"
7.) Maximum price should be set to something about $0.10, "Review and Launch"
8.) "Launch"
9.) Wait for the instance to bootup, and ssh into it with ubuntu:PSM93zOtj6
10.) Edit crontab, find the minerd entry and replace my username with yours (signup with a pool if needed)
11.) Change the password, with passwd
12.) Right click the instance and click "Create Image" to make a new image that will use your password and username
13.) Boot a few instances up and it should just work

Proof-of-concept for COINJOIN technology

We're happy to announce we've made huge progress in implementing coinjoin technology as the default method for storing transactions in the blockchain.

We have a proof-of-concept of the anonymous transactions working on testnet! Here's some screenshots, these were 3 separate transactions sent to 3 different addresses, at separate times.

Notice how you can't tell who is sending to who. Soon all blocks will only have 2 transactions, 1 for the creation event and a merged transaction with everything else.




This is just the beginning of our plans, checkout our thread for more information:

This decentralized governance and budgeting system makes it one of the first ever successful decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO).

15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / High end CPU instruction set as proof-of-work on: November 06, 2013, 01:44:17 PM
I was just thinking, could you make a coin with something like the SSE4 instruction set? I'm thinking you would target subset of instuctions that only high end CPU's could do. It would make it so that you couldn't use GPUs, because they would have a disadvantage and the only next step would be an FPGA/ASIC.

If we found an instruction set that worked well, you could do a diff between primecoin and bitcoin and then just rewrite the changed parts to the new instruction set.

I'm not entirely sure how useful a CPU/FPGA/GPU coin would be, but I think it would be the only of it's kind.
