::Update::

Sexcore-sexcoin is out!

All you payment guru's can now join the fun and give your payment processors a little Sex-appeal!

https://github.com/sexcoin-project/sexcore-sexcoin


We are really excited to add this piece to our development stable. This enables support of bitpay protocols and also paves the way to more merchant services.

But Wait! There's MORE!

With this release, we are swinging our development time onto the much-needed Android upgrade, and also a slew of node.js modules for sexcoin. Current Android users can rest assured we are going to have you up and running again shortly.

Also note that we are still working to get the network hashpower balanced out. We have hit a couple of walls as far as many pools are concerned, so we have decided its time to appeal to the community. We still believe Sexcoin will get balanced, but we are hoping to make it happen quicker if we ask for some help.  If you have any pool-op's ear, please encourage them to include Sexcoin in their merge-mining operations Let anyone on the dev team know if you need help presenting it to a pool-op.

the nodejs stuff is pretty awesome!

::State of Sexcoin Address:

With trade reopening on Livecoin together with the fact that we have achieved our goal of obtaining TeraHashes of work on the Sexcoin's blockchain, I think its time to bring everyone up to speed on the state of the coin.

As many of you are aware, in August of last year our blockchain came under a concerted attack of a magnitude which overwhelmed honest mining. This resulted in successful double-spending and block replacement of legitimately mined blocks.  The main reason behind the attack was not so much to screw Sexcoin, but to cause trade accounts on exchanges to become out-of-balance.  In this way the perpetrators were able to sell Sexcoin and withdraw Bitcoin. Then, send the same Sexcoin again, sell them again and again withdraw Bitcoin. This left any exchange unable to detect the out-of-balance condition or the block-replacement underfunded on the Sexcoin side. Something that may be difficult to understand is that the blockchain was vulnerable because of a lack of mining support - not because of a flaw in the Sexcoin code. The blockchain worked as advertised, as did the Sexcoin client.

During one of the attacks we were notified by an Exchange that there was something amiss with the blockchain.  At that time we notified all other exchanges trading SexCoin and advised them to freeze trading until we could find out what was happening.  Most exchanges responded rapidly.  We later confirmed that there were at least 3 very large block reorganizations of over 500+ blocks.  At that point, we knew that the attacks were successful.  These attacks also revealed that the blockchain would continue to be vulnerable until it had sufficient mining support.  We had very little evidence where the attack actually came from - and still don't.

The Sexcoin community had been in discussion about how to deal with the mining issue since the attacks last year.  Because we had already been in discussions the SexCoin Core Team were already heavily leaning toward implementing merge-mining.  But, we had not made a final decision.  Many other solutions still had merit - there were some very strong supporters of switching to POS and also some strong support for an algo switch or multi-algo.  Doing a coin-swap to token based was very appealing because of the user-base many of those chains had.

We notified the community, and began working on implementing merge-mining and segwit. Why?


  • We wanted to continue to be a POW coin.
  • As such, we felt MM (merge-mining) to be the best way to join a larger community, that community being scrypt mining.
  • Sexcoin did not want to have to rely on another coin's blockchain entirely.  If that blockchain went belly-up it would take us with it.  MM gives us the flexibility to be mined with ANY scrypt coin.  So, if one coin fails, Sexcoin can be MM'd with whichever one is garnishing support.  And, who knows? Sexcoin could also be the one helping secure the others!
  • Sexcoin wants to be able to participate in atomic coin-swaps.
  • Sexcoin wants to be capable of taking advantage of other merchant services that are evolving.

In many ways this is a sad time for us. As a POW coin, we very much wanted to make participation in mining available to small miners. The avenues available to acheive that goal carried with them too many pitfalls. MM does have its downsides, but we believe the problems that accompany MM are more managable.

Some very good things have come out of these recent events which have forced sexcoin to take position on a few issues that are relevent to the larger crypto-community:

Firstly: We are taking the position that scrypt mining is a good thing. But, that dividing the global scrypt power is not.  We would encourage other scrypt coins to implement merge-mining.  By dividing the global scrypt power, we weaken the entire system.  It is better to cooperate to secure all the scrypt chains.  We envision a system where all scrypt power is used to secure all scrypt coins.

Secondly: We are going to make every effort to get on decentralized exchange platforms.  We are not saying centralized exchanges are bad - there are some very excellent ones that we are on and they have all done a great deal for Sexcoin.  They also have proven to be instrumental in helping us deal with block-chain issues because they have a dedicated team to monitor, detect and react to blockchain issues.  For this fact, they are essential.  Our push to get on decentralized exchanges is an acknowledgment of this simple fact: The history of exchanges is that they are fantastic, until they are not!  PhoenixEx, CoinEx, Cryptsy, Yobit all performed admirably until they experienced devastating attacks, or succumbed to greed, or just turned into plain assholes.  When whatever event happened, all Sexcoin users lost coins.  I think it would be excessively naive to say it would never happen again. I have personally lost coins in each of these meltdowns as have other members of the SexCoin Core Team.

Thirdly: Segwit is a good thing. But not for the reasons people are currently supporting it.  Segwit opens up the possibility of different ways of exchanging coins in a way that coordinates with the blockchain.  I do not think the potential has been successfully tapped yet. (But the possibilities are exciting!)

Forthly: Sexcoin still holds the vision of an eco-system that does not rely on exchanges. We want sexcoin to be able to be USED as currency with exchanges being merely an extra service should a holder decide to convert.  This was our original vision and that has not changed!  We want to see couples purchasing sex toys and go on swingers' vacations.  We want to see Cam-girls purchasing outfits with sexcoin and event organizers accepting sexcoin. ( Think Mardi Gras or Nudes-a-poppin ... "Ladies Can I tip you?" - "Sure, here's my Andriod QR Code for Sexcoin!"). We want to see resorts purchasing sex furniture while the craftsmen use SexCoin as their preferred medium of exchange.  We want to see providers accepting sexcoin.  Not to convert to fiat, but because of the amount of value that it represents.

We are very encouraged to see merge-mining gathering support. With a sustained 4 Terahashes on the network we can have confidence in the blockchain. The dev team is working hard to secure some balancing hashpower.

We are also about a week away from releasing sexcore-sexcoin, which will allow some very interesting merchant services. After that the Adroid client will be updated.

Exciting news. Sexcore will be awesome! Onward and upwards!

There is a problem with the SSL certificate from the website. It expired over two weeks ago. Maybe you should fix that, because it sends a pretty bad image to the average user who sees the error message from the browser.

which website are you referring to?

I was talking about https://sexcoin.info, the website of this project. Apparently the developer saw my message and updated the certificate on the server, I no longer receive the warning message.

I would suggest to upgrade the hosting package as well, because the website is really slow and sometimes doesn't load. Just my 2 cents.

yeah the hosting is being moved and some updates should be happening there.

The coins wont be effected at all. The only thing required will be to grab the new wallet client and start it up and everything will be fine on the users end

I'm quite new to this Grin Where should I post the code for new nodes in my wallet to make it get a connection. I need exact explanation Cheesy

you should be able to just fire it up and it will get connections pretty quickly. If you want to make your wallet sync quicker you can update it with the bootstrap

How about a clap to Yobit? Angry

It should be possible, that they manage to get their SXC-wallet work again!!!

Its a scam to get the possibility to buy this coin at YOBIT and than I can do nothing with it...just sell it again with loosing a lot!!!

SEXCOIN-TEAM-----> U should do something!!!! Angry

We cant MAKE them delist. Lavajumper has been chasing them to fix their shit for months now. It is 100% on them. The only thing we can do is to warn ppl not to use them. We arent the only coin they have fucked over and we wont be the last. They are a terrible terrible exchange
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [SXC][NSFW] Sexcoin - v0.10.4.0 Released!! Mandatory Upgrade! on: January 02, 2018, 05:36:14 AM
I am getting real headaches from Yobit, this was the last time that I bought coins on this exchange. I bought for 5000 USD and can not withdraw them now! Selling them again with a loss... please do something about this

There is nothing that can be done, lava has been hounding them for months on end now. Many tickets for support have been issued to them. It is 100% on them we CAN NOT do anything with it and have been warning people against using yobit. I know it doesnt help you but thats just how things are, they wont do shit to fix it no matter how many people complain to them. I would advise against using them for anything, they are dodgy as hell

Prohasing is now updating to be back on the proper chain. When they have finished syncing feel free to mine away!
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [SXC][NSFW] Sexcoin - v0.10.4.0 Released!! Mandatory Upgrade! on: August 16, 2017, 03:03:14 AM
Any hope that this coin will be added to bittrex ? I trade pretty much only on bittrex, in fact SXC is the only coin i have on cryptopia.

That is a goal. We are currently getting this fork issue sorted out and securing the network. Once that is done then we can look at getting onto other exchanges.

On that note, please do not use miningpoolhub or prohashing atm. They are currently on forks and the coins are worthless and unusable. If you could submit tickets to them asking them to stop and update wallets that would be a big help
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [SXC][NSFW] Sexcoin - v0.10.4.0 Released!! Mandatory Upgrade! on: August 15, 2017, 03:59:16 PM
all markets on cryptoia is closing,is it temparary or sxc will be delisted?

I'm getting things cleared up with Cryptopia.

At this point in time, it looks like we can get it resolved. It does look like there was a misunderstanding of what is happening. I am disappointed that they did not reach out to us before they marked the market as closing, but I have to remember that as an exchange they deal with LOTS of different coins. If you take a look at the 'news' tab you'll see that they are delisting a bucket of coins and I think that we got caught up in the fervor.

I'll keep everyone informed.

:: UPDATE on the forking issues ::

One major pool never updated their client. They are on a fork that started when the majority kicked in. We have contacted them but not had a reply as of this writing. This looks like what is keeping the forked chain alive.

There is a more recent fork from another pool that we believe updated. We have contacted them also and are awaiting a reply. This does not appear malicious, but we're a bit baffled by it.

We have been gathering data from the network to see how much real effect these have had on the network and the block chain. As of right now, the majority of clients on 0.10.4.0 ( around 98%) that we can see from our nodes are reporting the correct block height. The other 0.10.4.0 clients appear not to be on a forked chain, but in the process of syncing.

Please check your clients and compare the blockheights to http://be2.sexcoin.info.

Clients on 0.6.4.6 appear to be most affected.

I will keep you informed as we find out more.

basically we are hoping it will be cleared up in the near future and people can get back to hoarding sxc!

Cryptopia says they are closing SXC markets Sad They said there is a Fork - what's going on? Huh

I guess it IS technically a fork but its nothing major. This happened when the network fully switched over to v4 blocks (age verification blocks). Some miners stayed on the old client and kept going along on their merry little way. But since all the exchanges are on version 10 wallet everything would of continued on fine but cryptopia panicked a bit with all the shit thats been happening with various coins lately. We have been in touch with them but since its over the weekend it will take a few days to resolve

tldr version: Everything is working as it should. Upgrade your wallet to newest version if you havent. Cryptopia will be sorted out as soon as possible

just dl the new wallet from https://sexcoin.info/downloads.php then take the wallet.dat file from your old wallet, back it up. Then after you install the new wallet and run it and close it down once, put your old walllet.dat file in there and you will have access to your coins
