1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][YAC] YACoin ongoing development on: March 25, 2014, 12:58:07 AM
Hi all,

I have a question. How can I do POS that is not split into two. Meaning if I have 1,000 YAC it is not split in two 500 YAC with the Stake added to each I see these POS all the time on the blockchain were the address is kept whole and the stake is added to the one address.

I would love to be able to do this, but have no idea if it is a special wallet or what. Help!!!

You are all awesome, I love YAC!!!!

Is there any site that will sell trade Blake? Just curious, I would buy some.

The model of "fund now and develop later" doesn't seem to be working too well.

Develop first, show proof of concept,  distribute thru proof of burn. 

Then, if necessary,  gather funds for particular purposes, from funders, who have skin in the game and are therefore motivated to scrutinize development and cover (or refuse to cover)  additional expenses. This way funders continuously participate in project development , voting with money, instead of relying on devs decisions in distribution of ipo funds.

I could not agree more, very well said

So if a fork is made all the current coins would dissapear?  Huh

No a fork only affects the logic for determining the valid chain going forward from a specific block (in this case)

Question, what happens if not everyone changes their wallet and some people continue using the older wallet, for whatever reason? Are there then two YACoins out there?
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][YAC] YACoin ongoing development on: January 12, 2014, 02:46:07 AM
As far as I can see now, using difficulty as score for POW blocks, and let POS blocks inherit that score from the previous POW block is a good enough solution for the problem on hand. Whether one POS block following another POS block is explicitly ruled out or not, I think it should be ok either way.

The Novacoin solution of encouraging a hybrid chain only make sense because they have 1:1 POW:POS blocks ratio. YACoin is 10:1 with POW:POS. You'll need to check pretty deep into the past to encourage a 10:1 ratio. The score consistency problem I mentioned above could lurk in such schemes. Of course, we can also talk about the POW:POS ratio if people want to change it.

I absolutely agree with the ratio of 10:1 and when you think about it, it's more like 20:1 at least. We do not have many POS in YAC now at all, I do not understand why the sudden rush and madness to "fix" POS when there is hardly any POS at all. Has anyone looked at the blockchains that we are comparing YAC to, meaning PPC and NovaCoin, they are 90% POS or more.

Is there are alternate motive behind all this?

Would you mind elaborating a bit?
1) You have to maximize an active weight. It doesn't matter how you do so, but you have to do it for any price (even for constant trolling from ignorant kids), because that's necessary to survive.

2) You have to make attack energy expensive, in order to prevent free attack attempts. Otherwise user will be able to use OpenVZ and 10000+ wallet copies to make 10000+ attempts without any problem.

NovaCoin maximizes active weight using a variable RoI and limited block reward. It also implements a variable trust idea, the consequtive PoS or PoW blocks has lower trust in comparison with a hybrid chain. Attacker have to generate a hybrid chain to make success.

Since YACoin is a fork of NovaCoin, who it not have this feature already it it? I mean YACoin comes from Novacoin.

One question I still have is : what is to prevent a user from forcing the generation of a POS block (which is just a flag when starting the wallet now, correct?), jumping offline before the generation is complete and coming back on 6 hours later.  Does it attach to the end of the blockchain? or does it insert where the blockchain was when the block was generated (not submitted), potentially orphaning 360 blocks?  

He can generate a PoS block wherever in the chain he likes, however with trust reduced to 1 it's useless to do so. And the "no consecutive PoS" rule prevents him from doing any damage even if he has millions of PoS-eligible inputs.

So, it appears that the genesis for the hash on a POS block is based on the coin age of the input.  If POS isn't successful (due to the most recent block being POS), then the coin age is not destroyed, and can be attempted later, which can be as soon as a minute (in an ideal model) as a miner finds a POW block to sit on top of the minter's POS block.

I just wasn't certain if the whole orphaning was being caused by the POS blocks having to be inserted into the blockchain at the point it was generated as opposed to when the minter was connected to the network.

Is cementing an option, or would that be really bad with our current distribution of hashpower (mostly centralized)?  https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Proof_of_Stake#Cementing

IMO cementing is a bad idea as it requires us to trust PoS (which we don't as of now).
Also there could be some race-conditions and other nasty issues that could easily result in network fragmentation.

I can't seem to wrap my mind around it, why is POS untrustworthy and POW trustworthy? So I have to trust a miner who has millions and millions of hashing power that he will not generate dozens of blocks in a series? That happens now, everyday and no one seems to care.

Three things needed to boost COL:

- Publicity and public awareness of COL's potential.

- Better presentation (websites, forums, logo design, etc.) as to not look like another alt coin hack job and present the show of professional confidence.

- Accesibility. People trade with things that are convinient, therefore we desperately need BTC/COL on a popular exchange!


Colossus coin needs more publicity. FAR more publicity. Dogecoin has proved that with enough publicity and public excitement, greed and anticipation of increase does wonders in propelling even a mediocre joke coin into prominence. In other words, a joke imbued with enough sense of anticipation, participation, and effot, can actually turn into something significant. If dogecoin can do it, something more real such as COL definitely can.

Go to social networking sites. Go to twitter. Go to blogs, media, news networks. Go to reddit. Go to 4chan. Go anywhere to make it known that COL exists and is a good opportunity for the following reasons:

Emphasize the fact that COL is vastly undervalued compared to its nominal price. Present low values will make it a much more affordable venture for many people who are not willing to risk more than few hundred dollars at most on crypto. Attract those who are not willing to spend too much with the correct analysis that COL's values have much greater room for increase than others.

Emphasize that it has 550 billion coin supply compared to BTC's 21 million. People and public are far more likely to feel attracted towards something they can own in whole number values than in decimals. This is surprisingly powerful motive. Buying and owning 100s of something is inherintly more satisfying by instinct than owning 0.002595802 of something.

Emphasize that crypto has gone through numerous trials, and survived.

Above all, be confident and spread the word. Even those without any realistic grounds for validity can become a significant force if the anticipation and human impulse drives demand and goals. From that relative point of view, we can confidently say COL has greater future than any empty day dreams or anticipations of greed.

With publicity and clear statement of real potential possibilities, COL will definitely rise. If dogecoin can do it, COL can.


Three factors listed above are applicable to any crypto, but COL has the potential to make most of them if dev teams help out on this.


There's my input.

Revitalize the main COL thread. Renovate the main website. Spread promotions. Do give aways, free ones and ones with conditions of posting on social/website networking sites. Reward per URL.



COL can be top 15. Reinvigorated devs can definitely do it. Keep at it, and you will see something happen that will change the scene.

You know all this seems very nice, but until people who hold COL decide to open faucets and giveaways and start sending some of that 300 billion coins to other people, so that more people hold a stake in it, it will fail and has failed miserably. There is not way that exchanges will hold it if people hold the coin and do not trade it send it, or donate it. You have to get the coin circulating and get people excited to own and have some.

We got some great submissions for a new icon. Please take a look and if you like one let us know!

Hey Tranz I congratulate you on the huge work and effort you are putting into the coin. I will go ahead and take a deeper look at the coin and the wallet tomorrow. I had of course head of hoboNickels before but had not really paid much attention due to the name, I'm sorry that I judged it so quickly.

Thanks man and awesome job.

i want to buy some blakecoin

Thanks for asking a good question, I have tried mining for a week and got nothing, is there a place to buy some Blake?


Bi3FJZCsSeovp9rHtjEyBTBNQdyBAwh3Uk

Sorry to hear that, did you really mine for a week on the pool and found absolutely no shares or did you mine too little?

HI I have been solomining for a week, and nothing, have not joined any pools yet. I have had luck with other coins, solomining that is. This is so tough for a coin with no trading platforms, I just can't believe it.

Don't like it don't buy/mine it, go cry to the ADL or the JIDF you bitch niggas.

Yeah, that's smart, lets just let the market decide everything. Let's bring back slavery and start a NiggerCoin where the profits go to the KKK and the start of a New Pro Slavery Organization to round up the Blackies. That sounds like a wonderful idea in a down economy, let's see how the Market Reacts To THAT. I sure it would love it.

By the WAY, Just to Kill Stupid Comments, I am Black.
