any update ?
or was it me, who was right

Personally I don't really care who is right or wrong. What I do care about is a stable chain and thats exactly what we have accomplished by building and developing. Now the chain is working great we are working on future plans, usecases and other developments to make an awsome product.  Cool

So, I was looking for a brand new coin to mine, so to see how it feels to be "among the first men to walk on the moon"  Grin
But, after joining the official shroud pool ( ) I was actually surprised I was the only one mining  Roll Eyes
Also, I then looked at the exchange, and it seems I will be trading with myself ( I woder if I'll be able to "make" the market like this? If I will be able, I will be richer than Gates  Cheesy ).

Anyway, back to mining, riches await me Cheesy

But, seriously, are people actualy interested in this? miners, traders? Seems like there really is no one around.
Also, is the official pool owned be the coin dev ( actual, not old one ) or is the coin owned by the pool?

Hi Facka and welcome to the ShroudX community. Were active every day on Discord. It may seem a bit quiet but that has something to do with december holidays I guess. Quiet is telling me things run smooth and we have time to develop more good stuff for the ShroudX Network.
The EuroHash pool is owned and maintained by me.  Smiley

Tillkoeln is the owner of Unnamed Exchange and has posted on Twitter ( and on bitcointalk ( / ( harrasing messages about ShroudX. Since these messages attack us I felt the need to repond.

The story began:
Once there was a cryptocurrency named Shroud Protocol. Shroud Protocol was forked from IndexChain in July 2020 by the original developer getdzypher. Shroud Protocol is listed on Unnamed Exchange. For unknown reasons the dev disappeared in September 2020 removing the content from the website, removing the discord server and does not respond to any communication ever since. Shroud Protocol was abandoned. Shroud Protocol had a premine of 5 million coins and just a little bit has been spent. In my opinion Shroud Protocol was developed very well and I wanted to take over the coin. I tried contacting the developer but there was no response.

Ok, so what did you do?
Since I do not have access to the github of Shroud Protocol I had to fork Shroud Protocol to my own github. I changed the code a bit, removing the old seed nodes, added new seed nodes and released a wallet update with the new seed nodes. The network was saved, hurray! A new discord channel was created and posted in the original bitcointalk ann.

Ok nothing special so far, what happend?
The new seed nodes did their job and I was the new developer of Shroud Protocol. As a developer I could now focus on the code. I made a few changes:
- Added new seed nodes
- Blacklisted the original developers wallet addresses to be activated immediatly (4,724,447 coins are now blacklisted and can't be spend anymore)
- Changed the masternode collateral from 10k to 50k to be activated on block 168100 (december 1st 2020)
- Increased the protocol version
- Altered the code to disconnect old non updated wallets from the network on block 168100 (december 1st 2020)

After the release was pushed I created a new website and started contacting as much partys as I could to update the information of the coin. All partys updated their data so no worries there. We also contacted Tillkoeln from Unnamed Exchange and we asked to update their Shroud wallet to the latest version. He asked me to proof the ownership of Shroud Protocol which I coudn't because the developer left and I have no access to any of the original sources. He refused to update the wallet because he told me the original developer had payd for the listing and we can't prove ownership. Ok, fair enough so I listed the coin on another exchange and informed the community to remove the funds from Unnamed Exchange and move them to our new exchange.

So far so good but ...
Then these messages were posted in twitter and bitcointalk harrassing ShroudX.
- We have a complete different github: Thats true but explained in the story above, we have no access to the original but abandoned Github account.
- Our source is completly different: Actually it's not. Feel free to compare both versions. Same codebase, I made some small changes as improvement but nothing serious enough to call it completely different.
- We don't own the original code, accounts or settings: Thats true but it is impossible to get as explained in the story above. Thats the reason we blacklisted the premine. This prevents the original developer to get access to his funds in case he returns after some time.
- This is a forked chain from Shroud Protocol: It's not. I saved the chain by adding new seed nodes and continued development. Same chain still accepting the wallets and funds from the original developer. Only the premine is blacklisted. Yes we are disconnecting older wallet versions on december 1st 2020 but that is just called development. Sometimes it's needed to disconnect old nodes to be ensure something thats new can get activate accordingly. In our case the new masternode collateral.
- I made a request to swap balances: I never did such a thing and theres no need. As mentioned there will be no problem to connect with any kind of wallet and check on your balance. It works. When you install the latest wallet release after december 1st your balance will show.
- We have a forked chain: We do not have a forked chain. See above comments and story. We are planning a fork on december 1st because we want to activate changes on the network that are not compatible with old node versions. We informed Unnamed well in advance but they choose not to update.
- It's a different coin: It's still the same coin, just tweaked the name a bit.
- When we uploaded the wallet to our github we had a new coin: No we have not. Everything works the same as in september when the developer left. The wallet on Unnamed Exchange is working even do it's not an updated version. We gave people over a month of time to update and even if you have an old wallet after this month and you upgrade you will still see the balance you had on december 1st.

I never expected such a unproffessional attitude from the owner of a so called professional exchange but sadly it happend and it probably will happen again. There was absolutly no problem when he told me the wallet was not going to be updated on Unnamed Exchange because of the reasons he mentioned. I did not pay for the listing on Unnamed Exchange and the choice was at Tillkoeln to update or not. When he didn't we got listed somewhere else.

What I can't understand is that TillKoeln is posting private conversations on the internet and calling someone a fraud without any valid reason to do so. Why is he harrasing people who try their best to create a great project with full transparency. He should be working on his own project since cryptocurrency businesses need to hold a Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin)-issued license if I'm not mistaken.
I'm a real life person with a real life professional job in IT trying to create and maintain a nice project for our community together with the ShroudX Team in my spare time. I did not in any way hurt Tillkoeln or Unnamed Exchange nor are my intentions to do so. I'm trying to be open and transparent as much as possible and I'm not hiding my identity. I have put a lot of time and effort into this project allready and I plan to keep doing that to improve!

So my request is to stop joking around trying to keep people on a chain that has no future.

If anyone has questions about me or the ShroudX project or thinks something is not right please feel free to contact me on Discord.

Check out the promotional contest posted above! Final week to get some free SHROUD coins  Cool
It's also the final week towards block 168100! Be sure to update your wallet or ShroudXnode before block 168100 (approx december 1st 2020) to avoid losing connection to the network!

Changes in version 1.2.4
- ShroudXnode collateral change on block 168100 from 10k to 50k
- Protocol update to 90014
- Old nodes are disconnected at block 168100. Old nodes are:
   - v1.2.1 (protocol 90012)
   - v1.2.2 (protocol 90013)
   - v1.2.3 (protocol 90013)

This update release will disconnect Unnamed Exchange from the network. This means that you should withdraw your SHROUD from Unnamed Exchange before december 1st 2020 and do not trade SHROUD on Unnamed after december 1st or else you risk the loss of your funds. Please move your funds to our new exchange partner!

On december 1st the ShroudXnode collateral will change from 10k to 50k on block 168100. ShroudXnode owners need to shutdown and reinstall the nodes with the new collateral. ShroudXnode documentation is updated for the 50k collateral and can be found on Github.

There is no old chain. We just updated the seed nodes and wallet. Your coins are still there. Just download the latest wallet from github and you are ready to go.

Original dev has not made a lot of money on his presale, almost all premine was still in the wallets. That gave us options.
The community has now taken over the coin since the coin has great potential and is working fine.
Coins that people bought in the original presale are still valid on the network.

New ANN here:
Website here:
New Discord:

Premine of 4,7+ million burned at block 168100. No more presales. No more premine. Just fair and square now.
Listing requests at several exchanges, waiting for approval.

ShroudX (SHROUD) is a state of the art privacy coin that features a hybrid PoS and PoW (x16Rv2), Sigma and Dandelion++ Protocol along with TOR.
The original founder/dev of Shroud Protocol left the project in September 2020 for unknown reasons and the community stepped in and took over the coin. ShoudX is born!
The premine of nearly 5 million coins will be burned and the masternode collateral have been changed to make ShroudX even more solid and strong.

Masternode setup guide:







1) I bought coins in the presale from the original Shroud Protocol, are my funds lost?
    No, your coins are still there. Just download the latest wallet and you are ready to go!
2) The original developer exit scammed!
    No, the original dev of Shroud Protocol left for unknow reasons leaving all funds in the premine wallets. Those funds will be burned at block 168100 and cannot be used anymore eliminating almost the whole premine.
3) This is just a copy/clone coin!
    ShroudX is using the technology that can also be found in Zcoin and IndexChain. We believe this technology is outstanding, very secure, and is a perfect start for further development. Whe don't want to reinvent the wheel.
4) In the original ANN there is an announcement of listing on Unnamed Exchange, what happend?
    We contacted Unnamed Exchange, explained what happend and made a request to update their wallet to the latest version to not be disconnected soon when the network updates kick in. They choose not to update their wallet meaning we can't trade on Unnamed Exchange anymore because they will fork onto an uncompatible chain.

Ok a little update because we work hard towards the takeover:
- New wallet update to be released next week (it's now in test) with new seed nodes for the network.
- In the new wallet the premine addresses are blacklisted so after release ShroudX will have 0 premine! Last thing I want is people to think I want to get quick money and leave.
- Newer and faster explorer is live and updating -->
- New website will be developed as soon as the wallet update is released -->
- More soon ...

I'll make a relaunch topic as soon as everything is back online and working

how do you know that dev coins are still in his wallet? explorer is down so where can you check those coins?
 if the dev team didnt get money from this, what is the reason why all their links are dead?
do you think it is worth to revive their project? if they lost interest and get out of this project, then they have valid reason to do so.
the dev's profile says, he logged in a week ago in the forum. so not very long actually.
Check out this explorer:
Funds are there. I'm trying to get in contact with the original dev but theres no answer so I don't know what happend but since the website is down, explorer is down, discord disappeared it seems like a abandon from dev to me. I hope he responds to my messages to figure out what happend. For now we created a fresh discord channel so we can discuss how to handle things.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN]SHROUD PROTOCOL [POW , POS, MN] THE NEW ART OF SECURITY AND PRIVACY on: October 03, 2020, 11:12:11 AM
This is no scam, dev coins are still in his wallet. He didn't sell, thats why I'm curious of what happend. Coin is working fine, it's on a exchange (and working on adding to another one), coingecko, mining pools. No reason to stop now, so we will continue.
Because discord channel disappeared I made a new one. Join here:

Trying to contact dev to see what happend. Shroud is running fine and it would be nice to keep the project so I've created a new discord for people to join in:
Please join in to discuss the future of this coin.

Theres no information about your project on your website and discord is not public but needs phone verification.
Please provide more information about the purpose of this coin. I can't make cookies with the information provided. It now looks like a coin without a purpose ...

Not much info here or on the website. It's a PoS currency but theres no info on how to buy coins. Theres very much info missing on the website.
