Project hasn't had any life in months, last code update was in 2019. Oddly, there's still  miing at fairpool.xyz but it's a ghosttown otherwise.  Bummer.

Looks like the last code that was checked in for this project was wallet update --- September 2018.  13 months ago. I don't see any material code  check-ins since then.

Is development stopped?

Swap is today on cratex.io, AARK-->UNI 1:1.  Get your coins over by Midnight GMT.

Manual swap details posted next week  (miners will have availability for ~30 days after main swap).

Swap update: we've migrated to a testnet, running now, that's quantum resistant based on the Komodo Dilithium module.  A 1:1 swap will occur for miners, and the brand relaunch will be Unicornis (UNI).  The premine for UNI is only intended to match the mined AARK coins.

  • To participate in the automatic swap, miners need to get their AARK over to cratex.io no later than Midnight GMT on Friday, September 27th.
  • There will be a manual tail-swap for at least 30 days, details posted here on that next week

Any unswapped coins will be burned so that the project remains as a zero-premine project.

Worth listening to my court case with Obelisk.  Their attorneys came to court and said there's no recourse because they're a "Kickstarter Campaign."   (Hint: they're not).  Here's that article with links to Soundcloud of court: bit.ly/OBELISK2

Then they thought it would be cool after all that to ship the e-waste not to my data center, but instead right to my front doorstep at home, 3,000 miles away.  I had to write a public letter and include the state regulator to get UPS to agree to remove it and ship it back to them.

Here's a snapshot of what that looks like when delivered to your front door: bit.ly/OBELISK3

It's nuclear crypto.  Even when the founder leaves there's another one reborn, slightly mutated, but ready for action! 

Fun project.  Congrats on the fork, new site, and all the work.

Hi--- checking in on this again, would be nice to recover the 1k --- it never confirmed.  My wallet is working now, kindly check the official pool wallet and manually reset the amounts there and I'll make another request to transfer?  Thank you.

@bladdoyle, thank you for helping with the pool payout problem yesterday (about 1k XBG).  However, that payout did not work and must have been cancelled.  Can you please reset it so I can request the payout again?

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] BitGrin (XBG) – MimbleWimble with Bitcoin economics – Windows wallet! on: June 17, 2019, 01:04:48 PM
I was asked nicely by a community member that I respect to restate my concerns here more objectively.  Here goes---

1. Wallet functionality. The XBG wallet is the central infrastructure piece of a project for users. However, the Bitgrin wallet (Kingfish) doesn't work for me or for many community members. It requires use of a VPN and other hacks which have no guide. A new wallet to fix was pre-announced then delayed. With recent delisting you have to hire third parties on OTC or others with VPNs to transfer funds.  It's inconvenient.

2. Listing problems.
There was a fight between the developer and BitMesh a few months ago that seemed to be resolved, but then Bitmesh suddenly delisted Bitgrin this month. This put the users in a bind because of wallet problems and a short time (just 2 weeks) to get coins off Bitmesh or burned. Very little help from developers to resolve this and no communication with the community about listing plans or alternatives. 

3. Mining and attacks. The network is constantly being attacked, forking, and rolling back. That may be just new project blues but in my experience I've never seen a project so frequently under attacks of different kinds. The project also lost money with double spends on exchanges. There's no explanation for the consistent attacks nor have the devs outlined a plan to fix it -- for example, chain notarization for double spend protection (VBK, KMD, SAFE options) or other tools?

4. Misleading "Bitcoin economics" claim.  The "Grin with Bitcoin economics" claim is false and misleading.  Bitgrin has 21m coins and Bitcoin has 21m coins but coin count is not "economics."  Bitgrin has a large premine that's released by smart contract at 20k each month, and during each of the first four years the premine represents 10.93% of the total (it averages to 4% over total, e.g., by year 2050). That's Bitgrin economics, not Bitcoin economics.

5. Premine accounting. With a high premine of nearly 11% per year (during first four years) an accounting is required. The devs recently put out an accounting, sort of, for the first few months --- but it just basically said "we spent it all on exchanges and mining reimbursements."  Even though devs could just say anything, a more credible and transparent accounting will be required to build faith.

Project needs:

  • Wallet: A functioning wallet but in the meantime, a detailed step-by-step guide on how to send/receive XBG using port forwarding and VPNs (with current wallet).
  • Listing plan: Project should openly track online where it is applying to be listed and have a channel for community members to support. Project appears to be constantly fighting with exchanges -- find someone to drive this, not the devs.
  • Bitcoin economics: stop that bs claim, it's false.  21m coins isn't Bitcoin economics, it's 21m coins. The "economics" includes overhead and Bitcoin had no premine.
  • Premine accounting: To gain credibility, project needs to provide credible, transparent, ongoing descriptions of premine spending plan w/ actuals spending, presented in a credible way.

Also, the project needs to stop making enemies, unnecessarily, of its community members.

DELISTING ALERT, BitGrin is being delisted from Bitmesh effective 18 June.  Users have until 30 June to withdraw otherwise coins will be burned.  The only other viable exchange is vinex.network.  According to the developers, "anyone can list Bitgrin if they want," (per Discord) and there are no updates to the several problems with forks, orphaned shares, and troubles with wallet syncing.

@bladdoyle, thank you for helping with the pool payout problem yesterday (about 1k XBG).  However, that payout did not work and must have been cancelled.  Can you please reset it so I can request the payout again?

Today was a bad day for mining on the Bitgrin dev pool.  Several miners complained about reducing, unchanged and disappearing balances.  Apparently there was a node upgrade and possibly a fork, one of the devs said generally (with no detail):

"It seems the pool was mining a fork for a few hours today so those coins weren’t valid."

Unsure what the status is but I would like assistance with the "shared transaction id" from the pool (so that 749 XBG I sent to myself aren't lost). 

This project seems promising from several perspectives (the tech, the economics) but I have to say that the mining experience, communicating with miners, usability of wallets, pools, etc is, well . . . an opportunity for improvement.

On Gminer 1.40 and 1.41 the Volta (Titan V) production is great --- but I keep tripping my circuit, which did not happen with prior versions.

* Up to 1.39 runs about 1470 watts;
* 1.40 + 1.41 runs almost 1600 watts.

Can we downthrottle this so that I run below 1500 watts?  Any recommended settings for that?

Maybe you should create a bounty for pool or design for your website, it makes your promoting easier.

We're researchers and our project has no premine, no dev fee, no bounties.

The initial specs for the project are based on code that we're going to be upgrading and updating as part of the project.  Functionality, usability and presentation, marketing are really important for crypto projects, in the appropriate stage. We'll be tinkering and building on this for a while.  We recognize this is too early stage and hacky for most users and that's fine because the consumer/user phase is a ways away.

We'd love for you to join us---in any capacity you can offer. We have lots of ideas and maybe we'll make a small contribution to making the future crypto safer.  Alas, we have no bounties.

Here's our research design, it's the best place to start to see what we're up to: http://bit.ly/AARDVARK1
