is there any aur working faucet?

Yes. You can get 636 AUR. You must be from iceland, though.

And for those who don't line in iceland? Smiley
There's this promotion at spurt.is: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446062.msg10482171#msg10482171

not sure how easy it would be to use as drop-in replacement. But when we need to hard-fork anyway to burn the premine, it could maybe be done in one swoop. Or go merge-mining? Thoughts?

Good grief. KGW was to fix one problem and just opens up another.

I say we merge-mine with BTC and be done with this issue.

The earth is spinning with 1675 km/h but the auroracoin virtual block chain is stand and still for 10hours already.
What can we do? I burned my spared voodoo puppet, long time ago. No prayers, no magic left around?

Here is the offending block: http://insight.auroracoin.io/block/24e5e48704d70dde5ebae52a31a5430f1fcad726d4680bb723fddb3c70215160

Can anyone explain what is going on when we have a situation like this?

Nice to see a small uptick in claims:

INCOMING AND OUTGOING:
Monthly trading fees: $30,000
Monthly expenses: Huh

Yep, they're definitely making minimal profit...  Roll Eyes

If they're only taking in $30k a month in fees than I would think they are not even making minimal profit.

They probably have a dozen employees.  If they pay them an average of $2,500/month ($30,000/year) then they're at breakeven on wages alone, never mind rent, utilities etc.

And they're in Calgary, so they're probably paying more than $2,500/month.

They would need to raise their fees or increase their trade volume just to survive. Makes more sense to buy bitcoin and sit around waiting for the price to go up.

This was a pump and dump.
You guys are beating a dead horse.

Even if it was a pnd, and I'm not saying it was, that doesn't mean it must die.

Because of auroracoin Iceland probably has a higher level of public awareness of cryptocurrency than any other nation.  Sure it isn't all positive, but a lot of work was done just by the huge amount of free publicity that happened.

There is something to build on there. Maybe.

I don't understand... why are there so many 12.5 AUR transactions in a single block?

https://chainz.cryptoid.info/aur/block.dws?99216.htm

Shouldn't there only be 1 per block?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: February 18, 2015, 07:32:41 PM
I'm no expert, but looks like difficulty got driven way high somehow and now noone's mining any more (no block since 6 hours)? some kind of attack?

.. or someone want more cheap coins, because stock depth is low and price can rise up x 10 anytime. Last stage airdrop and burn other coins soon?
Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy the coins at these prices rather than throw all that hashing at it?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: February 18, 2015, 07:24:08 PM
Even more so than the pre-mine, I feel this is the greatest threat to Auroracoin going forward.

I propose we merge-mine with bitcoin and be done with this problem.

What other possible solutions are there?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: February 18, 2015, 03:07:00 PM
Hash rate went up 10x!  What's going on?

Sorry to resurrect this, but I haven't found any other threads on BTCT that discuss this topic.

Did this forum tipbot ever get expanded to use other forums?

Does anyone know how this one works behind-the-scenes?  Did it require the installation of a plugin by the forum Admin, or does it operate completely independently of BTCT?

API in place for Auroracoin

I'm looking for someone to translate the Spanish parts of this file into Icelandic: https://github.com/bitpay/insight/blob/master/po/es.po

Name your price in AUR.

Any takers?

Is there a web front end for registering a name?  I see oneid.io allows you to view, but not register.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Altcoin co-operation on: February 09, 2015, 06:15:43 PM
Hey bimmerhead why don't you just stick to your aurora scamcoin? Nobody wants to play with you who isn't a scammer.

Now how did I know before I looked at your profile that you had registered on December 7, 2014?

You should have waited at least a few days between setting up all your sock puppets to give yourself a modicum of credibility.

Viorcoin, you need to either install real forum software at viorcoin.com (like vBulletin or SMF), or you need to shut it down.
More than 75,000 spam posts. Doesn't look good for the project.

Personally I vote for installing SMF if you want to get real discussion going around this coin. Otherwise just stick to BTCT.

Why would a dev be marketing?
Because they want people to actually use their coin.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Altcoin co-operation on: February 08, 2015, 03:14:22 PM
It seems that a lot of altcoins get launched with a flurry of work and enthusiasm, and then interest from the lead developer wanes and the coin dies a slow (or not so slow) death.

Is there an opportunity for altcoin developers, especially for those coins where there are only one or 2 developers, to work together for mutual benefit?

Could altcoins share developer resources so that work done related to one coin could be fairly easily ported to another coin?

If altcoins that are technically similar shared developer resources, would that then allow devs to spend more time on marketing their coins to their particular audience?

Not being a dev myself I don't know the answers to these questions. Maybe the fact that so much work is already shared as opensource via github means there isn't much room for efficiency gains through an 'altcoin co-operative'.
