1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Guncoin(GUN) - Officially Launched! on: August 13, 2014, 09:47:05 PM
Everyone,

We have some exciting news with some big changes coming.

First of all, I must apologize for not keeping up-to-date with the community the last couple weeks.  Unfortunately, some life changes (out of my control) have happened recently and have taken all of my time.

Therefore, I am passing ownership and management of the Guncoin project to another dev team over the next couple weeks. They will be able to take Guncoin where it needs to go and be able to really interact with the community and make changes that you all request.

Everyone needs to understand that my team is not making any money on this transition. The project is not being sold, it is being transferred to a better team.  This was a very hard decision to make and difficult to let go.  However, Guncoin and the folks who support it deserve better, and I realize this.

I am confident that the new team will take great care of Guncoin and make this puppy soar.

More information to come on this very soon...

It is unfortunate that we were out-voted on askcoin again, but it happens.  You are not the only ones putting forth effort.  Granted, you put forth a lot more effort than many other folks here.  Keep in mind two things about Askcoin and the other brand new exchanges...

1.  The trading volume on Askcoin is nearly 0.  Getting listed there would be *nice* but it will not help Guncoin if there are no members on the site buying anything.
2.  Anyone can simply register as many accounts as they want to use for voting there.  This can be easily exploited, as is plain to see with many of the coins in the voting list there.

Bter and Allcoin are much larger sites with much greater trading volume.  They have many members who buy and sell on a daily basis.  These are the sites that we should be putting our efforts into, as they can really grow Guncoin.  Bter (can not pay for votes) currently has over 1,000 votes for GUN.

Bleutrade and Allcrypt are not "failing", because they were never "winning" in the first place.  Meaning, once again, these are sites with almost no trading volume, no really active members/traders.  Only a few thousand GUN has ever been traded on allcrypt.  Bleutrade has a lot of potential and we personally have been trying to push Guncoin more there because it is a nice site with nice admins.  GUN has been trading more volume than 90% of all their other coins, daily.  The issue still comes down to the fact that unfortunately, there are not many active users there to buy or sell.

There is no single answer or action that can bring us to the top.  People need to WANT to help.  While we have a few active supporters, we need a lot more.

any ideas or plans to innovate the coin? When the coin hits other exchanges and more people catch wind of guncoin, that is going to be the main concern. Unfortunately the exchanges are not full of gun enthusiasts,  or people who want to support a cause; they are crypto enthusiasts, and people out to make a quick buck. If they see there is nothing that sets this coin apart from others, outdated scrypt, or top tier features, the coin may not last too long on the exchanges

We have decided not to change our algo from how it is currently configured.  We are very pleased with how the Scrypt with DigiShield has performed and we are not eager to change the source.

The "gunchain.com" explorer is down for a bit today for server maintenance.  It will be back up this evening.

Just an FYI.

UPDATE -

Voting, voting and more voting!

Guncoin is holding excellent position at bter.com and allcoin.com (top 20 in both).  We are also still rising on Mintpal! Keep voting and keep in mind that allcoin.com now offers 50 votes per day for posting a tweet!  Check out their voting page for more info.

Team Guncoin is beginning another round of advertising next week and it would be great to get listed on another exchange to promote before that begins!

Also, we are interested in offering a bounty for an iOS wallet creation!  Please contact us if you are interested.

Not well apparently, the hash rate has cut in half in the last few days..

The hash rate is currently at 78 Mh/s, which is right around where it has been for about 2 weeks.  We have not seen double that since the day Guncoin went live.  It is steady.

Marketing is slow and steady as well.  Unfortunately, our advertising budget is getting very low so we are looking at other ways to get some more dollars flowing in for the project.  We will always manually market, but advertising dollars are important.

We believe it is important that Guncoin get listed on some larger exchanges.  We really need those votes people!

LOL we threw a TON of votes towards the "askcoin" exchange.  I am sure we will be listed there soon, but they are a brand new exchange and have nearly 0 trading volume for most coins.

On the other hand, please keep up the voting on BTER, Mintpal and AllCoin!  We have a steady stream of votes and are rising on all of those lists.

I do not know what is up with Cryptsy.  They put soooo many crap coins on the voting list for apparently no reason at all and yet they will not put Guncoin on the list even though we have an outstanding voting record with all of these other sites.  We have contacted them many, many times and I have seen lots of you contact them as well.  They obviously have something against us.  Meh, whatever.  It would be nice to be on Cryptsy, but it does not break my heart.

No problems at all, all nodes are up and synced.

Blockchain Explorer(s) showing current blocks and all is perfect.

What mining pool are you using?  They may be having a problem...

The Guncoin Android Wallet has now been released!  It is a FREE download from Google Play.

You can find it by simply searching for "guncoin" in Google Play, or, we have a link from the website:
http://guncoin.info/guncoin-wallet

As a note, Guncoin needs to be listed with Cryptsy, BTER or Mintpal for the "Exchange Rate" function of the Android App to work properly, so that is disabled for now.

Check it out!

Just received this email from Mintpal support:  Apparently they think that someone was using a "bot" to vote, so all we could do was advise them that it is not true and it is very unfair to our community.  I guess this is Mintpal showing some true colors.  Hopefully nobody was actually using a bot, as it just hurts the real voters (but I do not believe anyone was):

------------------------------------
Hello,

This afternoon we removed a lot of bot votes, your coin was one of the less penalised ones compared to some others.

Regards,
Jay

Good Morning!

We seem to have lost 400 to 500 votes on Mintpal today.  We were nearly 1,700 votes yesterday and now are just over 1,200 today.

We have sent in a support ticket to Mintpal to address the problem, but want to encourage all of you that vote to send in a support ticket as well.

We have worked very hard for those votes and they need to give them back.

That is all.   Cheesy

Good Morning!

- Regarding changes like PoS, we are still considering it.  However, Guncoin is gradually getting more and more support, and it is showing.  There are more and more transactions posted per block now, trading volume is up more and more every week.  Network hash rate keeps getting better and prices are raising with stronger buy support behind the market.  So, we are definitely considering options, but on the other hand, we are very happy with how things are progressing.

- @timmy1979222, regarding the Wallet problem, make sure you have a "Guncoin.conf" file. And, as damm315er said, make sure to give it enough time to sync with the network if it is a new installation.  If you still have problems, please email us directly for support.

- To the groincoin guys... U ROCK.  Thank you for your support, and know that we will help support you guys as much as we can as well.

- Android Wallet should be completed this weekend!  We will give an announcement as soon as it is completed.

- KEEP VOTING AT MINTPAL!  We are getting higher on the voting list every day, and EVERY vote helps.  Should we run some kind of voting promo?  Maybe free GUN for verified votes?  What do you all think?

- Also, I still think it would be a good idea to get together a fundraiser for NRA or "Friends of NRA" in the near future.  Any thoughts on that?
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Guncoin(GUN) - Officially Launched! on: June 17, 2014, 02:54:19 AM
At the core, Guncoin transactions can already be quite anonymous, as with most cryptocurrencies.  We really do agree that being anonymous any more than the current abilities of GUN does not have a place with Guncoin's intended purpose.  Therefore, we are not pursuing any extra features that expand on that.  We are all for anonymity, and there are some really cool features out there, it just does not serve a purpose in this situation.  We do not advocate going around the laws that are put into place, and those laws require checks that use people's real information (background checks, etc).  The only way that Guncoin can potentially grow to widespread use is not by "dodging" those laws.  It is by showing that people who use it also follow normal procedures that are part of buying any firearm.

One thing people also need to understand with ASIC miners is that they are becoming more widely used, getting more powerful and the prices are dropping fast.  ASIC's will not destroy the world of Scrypt.  If anything, it may increase the number of miners.  Mining is always evolving and that is not going to stop any time soon.  Rest assured, no matter what the algo, there will be ASIC miners developed.

A few side notes:

1. Trading volume on Bleutrade is getting better, and votes on Mintpal are looking great!  Please everyone, help by voting.  You can vote every hour on Mintpal.  It will take us a while to get to the top of the list, but we will get there.

2. A "Free Guncoin" page with locations, faucets, giveaway's etc is being added to the website this weekend.

3. Android wallets will be coming soon.  We got a little set back, but will report on this more soon.

We are looking into these options and will discuss the pros/cons.

Getting mentions on radio shows is GREAT.  At this early stage, any and all recognition Guncoin can get is very important.  Get people talking about it!

Regarding folks trying to keep Guncoin prices down, I have a theory there...

I believe there were a couple initial bag holders that just wanted to cash out of their Guncoin (for whatever reason) and they did so, especially on Bittrex, for extremely low prices.  Obviously, folks bought those coins at a stupidly low price, and are probably now holding a decent amount themselves.

Bleutrade prices have been better than most, and I also saw this morning that there are many sell orders for a lot less than yesterday...  However, those sell prices we are seeing on Bleutrade are still considerably more than what people bought for on Bittrex.  I am thinking that those who bought cheap on Bittrex are now making their profits from Bleutrade.  Just my 2 cents.
