1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][MINT] Mintcoin Logo Contest - Community Owned Block Explorer Launched! on: August 29, 2014, 08:33:44 PM
Hi folks, its been a long time since i posted anything here but i read allmost every day.
Its because im on the move allmost all the time and only have my phone.
I like the changes made with the new dev team and the premine gone and all. Really good news for the coin!

I would really like to donate some mints every now and then to different projects but its difficult since i allmost never have access to my computer where my wallet is.

So i have some ideas for the wallet:
1. An option to auto-send [0-100%] of minted coins to [mintcoin address]
Then i could auto donate x% of all minted coins to whatever project i like.

2. Possibility to remote control the wallet via an android app.
It could be an option in the wallet where you allow remote access and then configure a password or generate a qr code that you have to scan with your phone to gain access.
And a light weight android app that you can connect to your wallet and see your balance and send coins (maybe just to pre configured addresses for security).

What do you think, is it possible to implement any of it?

Last week i remember some one talking about unlimited advertising for mint was this for real or just someone trolling and if it is real when will this be implemented?
I dont think it was trolling since it was the dev who said it (correct me if im wrong..)

Which means almost 80% of the issued coins controlled by the top 265 wallets.

Most interesting.


Lots of it belong to exchanges cold wallets

Forking is not necessary, but it is an option that the community can consider. I am not here to push any specific agenda.

Can someone explain the unlock wallet problem mentioned. I don't have time to sort through the conversations on this massive thread.

BTW. there's a bug in mintcoin wallet 1.9.1:
- I've got the wallet encrypted and locked.
- Going to the send screen, entering a valid address and amount
- then clicking Send does not show the unlock wallet where you can enter a passphrase, nothing happens.
- I first have to click unlock wallet button and only then I can send coins.
short: The "Unlock wallet" window should appear when clicking send and the wallet is locked.

Take a look at this: https://github.com/mintcoinproject/mintcoin/pull/20
I think the above solved the unlock problem.

I'm in doubt.. sell my 25000000 MINT at great loss or hope the dev team will make a statement that will inspire re-newed confidence in mintcoin.


"Unlock wallet for minting only" does not work either. It unlocks for sending too.

What I don't get is why the people selling don't just hold the coins in their wallet and mint MINT? It's about 1% every 20 days and that can add up, especially since February/March 2014.

This is why

TIME                           TYPE    PRICE      MINT               TOTAL               FEE                NET TOTAL
2014-06-07 22:36:58   BUY   0.00000005    9970.22466301    0.00049851    0.00000074    0.00049925
2014-06-06 01:24:49   SELL   0.00000010    5000.00000000    0.00050000    0.00000075    0.00049925
2014-05-27 08:26:15   BUY   0.00000005    10000.00000000    0.00050000    0.00000075    0.00050075

Why try make 1% in 20 days when you can ride the waves these idiots create and make 50% in 10 days ?
that takes alot more work. You have to monitor the market and make the right moves

The top address just bought 400 million more coins. With that, he is now minting over $1,500 per month at current prices. The more he buys the higher the price goes, and the more coins he gets, the more he mints, which means doubling up on his minting values as well as the price goes higher...wow. Genius. He is minting over 2 BTC worth a month now...I think it is cool because it is a lot better than investing in mining gear... With Mintcoin the coins are your miners (or minters).
Couldn't that be mintpals wallet? As the market moves people move more mints to the exchange..

Yikes, I can honestly say my faith is a bit shaken.  I have never seen a coin rise this far, this fast, build such a large community, and then bam!  Straight down.  It's like someone slammed on the brakes and never let off them.

This is MINT.  This is the coin that started the entire PoS craze!

Oh well, I don't dump, I have been buying a few million here, a few million there, and sending them to my wallet to stake since MINT dropped under 20 satoshis, so I may as well scoop up a few million more and go down with the ship if I must.

Hope we see some life back in good old MINT one of these days.

You guys should really make a combined effort to get your hash power on MINT and show there is buying power that can reverse your long term down trend. I offer MINT payouts on http://www.cryptoalts.com but mining support has been somewhat non-existent (http://cryptoalts.com/cointable/).

With your volume, something like 0.5-1BTC of buy pressure a day could really make a difference and set off a slow upward motion instead of losing 1 sat per week. I get there's Hashcows and other larger pools, but I always encourage BC miners to stay on BCP or use my pool. Because individually you are weak, but together you can be strong.

Mintcointeam add this multipool in the OP, it is a really good one!
Miners, try it out! It is easy to use (no registration) and pays out really good!

I bought half a million today , that should speak for itself  Wink
I bought 7 million the last few days and keep mining it Smiley

How can you still mine mintcoin?
Are you mining it at one of those multipools or somewhere else.
Can you get alot of mintcoins doing that?

Yes at a multipool. I get about 60-70000 mint/24h with 800 khash

Edit:
At cryptoalts.com

That can be easily solved by the coin control features already integrated in the mintcoin wallet. I already use only the recent coins for transactions while my older coins are staking. I think people will understand if their coins are staking so they can't use them instantaneously. Or that they lose their coin age by moving the coins. Most people will just put the money in their wallet and let it there and collect interest. Just like a bank.

I see what you mean now...

I wonder if there's a way to implement something that will basically tell the wallet which transactions were staked (or at least which address it was from). This would help if the bank were to give each person only the coins they themselves were staking. I don't believe this happens right now though, but may be worth looking into if equality is really that important with this.
Thats why i think its a good idea to require them to leave the coins untouched for a couple of days more than minimum coin age. It would give a higher possibillity to stake and one wouldnt need to keep track on whos coins actually staked. Simple and safe

This could cause issues with members. I couldn't imagine a bank saying "you made your deposit but we're not going to let you touch it for a week."

Actually, in some cases I guess this happens (most banks will do cash deposits instantly, though some are still delayed a few days). But for cryptos, the point is breaking away from this cycle.
Well, they can withdraw it but then no interrest is payed. Just like when you move your coins in your wallet.

Can you share some more details and how you plan to simplify it? I think that it actually being over complicated a bit and coin age isn't relevant when you're dealing with exchanges anyways because they're constantly moving the coins back and forth between their own wallet and therefore there's no real way to see how much each person has earned regardless

This is not about an exchange and moving coins within one wallet.  So, yes it can be very simple i guess i miss read your first post.
One have to require people to not move their coins in a certain time period that is a couple of days more then minimum coin age to ensure they stake. Maybe 30 days. If they move them before no interrest is payed.


Yeah, the problem is exchanges don't keep coins in the same addresses you deposit them into. ie.

I make a deposit of 100k MINT right now. That's put in Address A.
Later on, when the hotwallet hits 500k (due to 4 other depositors), 350k coins are going to be moved to the exchange's cold wallet, Address F (including coins of mine, B, C, D and E)

From time to time the hot wallet will need replenished. This means coins are moving back from F to another address for sending out.

When we make the deposits is irrelevant because the exchange is going to be shifting things back and forth between hot/cold wallets and addresses for paying out.
I can't see the connection between the banking idea and an exchange?

hey guys, what about a MINTCOIN ONLINE BANK?


a simple site where you can login with an email and a password (possible anonymously using Tor). There you have your own Mintcoin account where you can send money to or withdraw money.

behind all this is a person/dev/institution/fund with a huge wallet running 24/7. they can charge you a bit for running the Bank but you will still get your annual interest.

advantages:

- simple for average users
- don't worry about your wallet not minting, wrong wallet, slow wallet or energy costs
- accessable via any PC, smartphone, tablet (also the apple products)
- anonymous

disadvantages:

- you have to trust the organisation/people running the bank
- network security (i still think a lot of people would run their own wallets)


I hope some people are interested in discussing this suggestion. I would give a LOT of my Mints as a bounty if this is really developed. I think it's even better than the android wallet.

Cheers

I think its a great idea! I have been thinking about this myself for some time now since i read that many people have their mints on exchanges because they dont want to install a wallet.
The problem i see is how to keep track of whos coins have minted and how mutch but i do have some ideas how to simplify this.
I might build something just to try it out..

The minting is easy enough. Just pay out minted coins relative to the deposits. It's the wallet that mints, so this is both fair and simple.

Its based on coin age so one need to keep track on every coins age and staking is pretty random so it is alot to keep track on to know whos coins have staked what ammount if people withdraws/deposit every now and then.

"...an active team edits the crap out of their ANN Thread on a regular basis so information is not outdated for those who are researching the coin. People who currently research Mintcoin as a possible investment are going to find tons of dead links and a dead website. What’s the chance they’ll want to push their BTC into Mintcoin in that condition?"

The website is back up, what's more you could flag any dead links in the OP rather than quote an old complaint made by someone else.

Looking forward to the Android Wallet!

none of the merchant sites I checked were broken links, this is just FUD

Then that article is spitting out FUD left and right... it said most of the links were 404 errors... hmmm.
I randomly clicked something like 20 links. None of the merchants was broken but some of the games and one multipool was.
Someone should go through all of them and remove the dead once.
Allso one other multipool should be added. Im on my cellphone right now and dont remember the url but its in here a couple of pages back.
Pretty good pool! Pays out really good!

This is my noob analysis:

  • Currently there is more supply then demand
  • Demand is down since price is going down for a while
  • Once the price goes up, the demand will follow due to regained thrust/hype/...(this is just how it works)
  • We should get demand up and/or supply down

My advice if you want to support the coin:

Buy (or at least hold on to your coins while they mint)
I am doing whatever I can to buy some more mint!


Nice analysis Smiley
Mining is a good way to support it too

Wish I wouldn't have bought back into mint. It's future doesn't seem so bright the trend has been nothing but downward for the past few months. A few months back a few people were screaming I'm not selling my mint till it hits 100 sat 1 person inparticular that I can remember lol good luck with that it seems all that's going on in the exchanges is a bunch of dumping. I hate to talk negative especially because this is one of the coins of I've loved since I stumbled across it. I'd just like an explanation as to why people believe mint will have a good future because as I said right now it isn't looking so good.
How do you come to the conclusion that its future doesn't look bright? By the price on the exchanges?
Look at what is being done for mintcoin instead: 50+ merchants, allot of exchanges, android wallet on the way, legally registered foundation and so on..

It has been said many times before: MintCoins is NOT for short time profit. The value will be built organically and not from pump/dump..
