Don't get the wrong idea about this govt. run authentication system. Our permission to use it is in no way a stamp of approval by the government.

The Icelandic government is not embracing Auroracoin, although they let us use their authentication system.

Airdrop authentication through the National Registry now live

Thanks! Confirming this works. Finally managed to get the 31.8 AUR

How secure is this against people trying to game the system?


This is the system the government uses for its services, and is run by a government agency, so it is a robust as you could expect from such a system. In order to use it you need to apply for a password through your online banking or through the mail. That is then tied to your kennitala. If you are abroad, you can get access through an Icelandic embassy. Alternatively you can use the chip on your debit card along with a smart card reader to sign in, or if you have a special smart SIM card on you phone, you can use that as well. People should be able to use this system to claim for their children as well.

April 4th: Automatic checkpointing introduced.
Update ASAP to v. 1.3.0.0

Does this update fix the KGW timewarp attack?

This does not explicitly deal with TW. That will require a hard fork that will be introduced at a later date.

This ensures that such an attack (and 51% attacks) will be rendered useless. But the network needs to update to 1.3.0.0 for the protection to work. Also gives us time to carefully think through any changes we make.

Every coin that uses KGW should apply the fix as well asap right?

Any idea if digishield or dgw (version2) are susceptible to the same exploit?

Every coin using 1 block retargeting should take note. BCX has correctly identified an attack vector that an attacker (like himself) with enough resources could exploit. We will indeed have to make appropriate changes in light of this.

There is some major P&D going on. Someone was pumping today with 35 BTC and guess what... As soon as he placed a buy order at 0.0082 someone dumped 35 BTC worth of aurora on him. Guy must have ripped his hair out.
Same thing happed a bit later but with 25 BTC

I think it's the same person. I think he's selling to himself maybe? To flush out everyone. Make a scare.

Either that or two whales are fighting each other.

Major mind games AND/OR major whale chaos.


sell wall at 0.0068 (cryptsy) is slowly getting eaten. Was 35 BTC before, now 17. There seems to be quite some buying power.

Keen buyer with 121 BTC chewed up the sell orders between 0.0068-78

OT. I am wondering why the airdrop numbers have gone from the auroracoin.org page.

I wonder, too.

Hourly airdrop history: http://blockexplorer.auroracoin.eu/claims.html

When the claims site goes down, the counter goes down.

Well now this is over with. Took some time for KGW to normalize, since the previous blocks had such extreme blocktimes. A lot of blocks mined in the process.

Thanks to the miners who stuck with AUR.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR][MANDATORY UPDATE] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: March 29, 2014, 02:55:45 AM
Make sure you are at 1.2.0.0
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR][MANDATORY UPDATE] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: March 28, 2014, 11:32:54 AM
Those claim numbers are really very high.

http://blockexplorer.auroracoin.eu/claims.html

This can mean many things... could be scamming involved could be just the Icelanders. I don't know to be honest.

Could someone from Iceland give an opinion as to wether it's believable that 5.63% (18,000) Icelanders claimed their coins (or had them claimed by a familiy member or friend).




You should just ask where the Icelanders are. For example there are 1400+ Icelanders in this facebook market group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/544259455688424/?fref=ts

AUR has been in the news, day after day. Iceland only has 2 channels that do news reports, and none of that 24/7 reporting you have elsewhere. There are 2 nightly 20 min news shows people watch at 18:30 and then 19:00.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCMsSdMo2ME
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Weh8dBL4kmk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjTsIuHkT6U
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pyz_zFcuhDw

It will also be discussed on Saturday, in a show called "Stóru Málin" (The Big Issues) on Stöđ 2.

Also: Why doesn't someone do a poll in Iceland at some point?

Hi i need little help.., i make mistake = send AUR from new updated wallet 1.2 to old wallet (1.1)

Result = transaction still unconfirmed

Then i upgrade backup my wallet, make upgrade to 1.2.

 But yet is my wallet out of sync (16 connections)


I dont know where is my money,....


I tried use http://blockexplorer.auroracoin.eu/ to find money, it show me that is "not yet redeemed" but the received adress is different from my :/


Any idea ?


This should not be a problem. Just wait for a new block.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR][MANDATORY UPDATE] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: March 27, 2014, 01:28:04 AM
Have 100 (unused) working Kennitalas, that are 100% in Aurora database, need Islandic SMS number(s).

Will share 50%. Instant cash out to Bitcoin. Can do big volume!


Why would someone with a icelandic number share anything with you? You can find lots of kennitalas just googling around
Because most out of Google are already used!

* sigh *

This will obviously not work you fool.

A reminder to miners and pool operators: Update to 1.2.0.0
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR][MANDATORY UPDATE] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: March 25, 2014, 04:38:00 PM
AUR can be a success if merchants learn how to accept it as payment before consumers learn how to dump the coins on exchanges.

The clock is ticking.

In other news.. AUR has disappeared off CMC?

..aaand it's gone.

Just stale datapoints, since the block explorer is down.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR][MANDATORY UPDATE] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: March 25, 2014, 01:40:40 PM
This implies auroracoin is already more popular than bitcoin, with 1% adoption. The crypto war has been won today. Thanks Balduro. Great idea. Best wishes to you. Many people have ideas, a few get to work to make things happen. You are one of those rare individuals.
I don't think so. I think people are claiming coins with the vodafone database leaked late 2013... There is absoluletly 0 chance that 1% of the population got in 14 hours after the airdrop...

It will be trivial to poll the population to see the % of claims. I hope someone does that at some point.

This is progressing much faster than I imagined.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AUR][MANDATORY UPDATE] Auroracoin - a cryptocurrency for Iceland on: March 25, 2014, 05:34:11 AM
Is there an actual proof of actual icelanders receiving their coins?

That guy
I just got my coins, still waiting for confirmations though.

Has made his account after Auroracoin was announced (new account).

Every person on reddit, claiming that they received their AUR, started posting after Auroracoin was announced too (new accounts).

That's a little bit strange.

Icelanders use facebook, most don't use reddit. https://www.facebook.com/auroracoin.org/posts/1405092529756891?stream_ref=10

Teachers are on strike, and the kids are staying up claiming coins.

one question to balduro and others (about hard fork and the network difficulty)

what's the difficulty going to be after the hard fork at block 5400? is it going to be reset somehow and will be slowly rising (because of KGW), or will it continue with the difficulty -+ of block 5399? i'm just asking because of the constant "locks" of the network at some blocks, and that, if the diff is going to be lets say 4000 at block 5399 and the fork happens, it will not help much to speed up the network and transactions.. in my opinion.. and yes i know, the block time is going to be half the time it is now, but still...

thanks for the answer (hope i'm not asking a question, that was already answered somewhere in this thread)

The difficulty retarget will happen after every block after the fork.
