Not sure why people are posting BTC as first, it clearly asks for top 5 ALTcoins.

Mintcoin is my choice at the moment.

Donated some mint. Cool stuff!

I am confident that the whole book will be released before Christmas 2014.  My ojective is to complette all coin sections (Bitcoin plus 49 altcoins) by the end of September and then complete every other page in October.  Afterwards, I can focus on the possible avenues by which I can get it published.


This looks awesome! I can't wait to see the full version. Let me know when  you publish it so I can pass it around?

Mintcoin MINT has its own four page section in my book called Cryptocurrency "The Alt-ernative" Reference Book.  Here is the thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=483187.0

I will document all major historical events for MINT as well as the current coin specifications.  I have been working on the book for a few months.  If you would like to help fund this future publication, here is my MINT wallet address:

Here is the incomplete preview section for MINT (the section is more up-to-date on my computer):

I like Mintcoin but I downloaded the wallet for windows and it would take almost a day to download for 6 months of a Blockchain. I wouldn't say this issue would have to do with the Blockchain size, more that the GUI needs improvement in how it connects and downloads the chain from other nodes. Something I have found quite useful when wanting to quickly sync a Blockchain is to have someone on the longest chain make a copy and publish it to Megaupload or Dropbox where you can download a 600-700MB Blockchain in about 20 minutes so you end up only needing to finish the last 1-2% of the Blockchain (you would need to test the security of this if you do this but you need to atleast change your RPC username and password). I have also been toying with the idea of how you could use Torrents to download the Blockchain in a spactical manner.

What some coins have also done in the past is swaps to a different Blockchain through an automated process and start from scratch once again. If you took it in terms of swapping for exactly the same thing, it would prune off all the excess Blockchain bloat and you can quickly sync again so then it stands to reason that it could become a piece of the Blockchain and regulate it's size.

I agree, this is a large issue. Took me 3 work days 8-5 to finish it last week.

People bought into this investment because of the current terms, if you would like something different the thing to do is create your own coin, fitting your exact specifications. Changing the interest rate and coin cap in the middle of the game will just make all major holders dump so it's not going to affect the price in a positive manner to do so. It's naive to think that these changes will make the price suddenly spring from the dead.

If i decide not to dump I'll be staying with v1.10 and not following forks that change the parameters of MINT.

if anyone wants to join me in supporting the original blockchain they are welcome to

I agree, I think we should stick with the original parameters. Sure, the whole block list is slow to download, but instead of slowing down transaction time to make up for that, why not find a way to speed up the download instead? Nodes maybe?

What about updating nodes on the website to download? Other coins have that so that the blocks will be updated quicker.

This would be helpful to bring to the reddit page. That said, two things to discuss: one is about the 70bil coins. I don't think at all that the total number of coins is a big deal. It's not the total but the stability that investors looks for. Stocks of companies trade and sell at all values regardless of price, so I don't see how that would affect anything capping the coins lower, besides maybe an initial shock jump in value.

Second, I see the 6% jump down to 1.5% to be quite large, as well as the 20% to 12%, at least if there is going to be a 4% drop in the sequential years that follow. What about a exponential curve starting from 20%, and maybe decreasing more often? For instance,  just as a mockup, here is 20/exp(0.2*Time):

1    16.37462
2    13.4064
3    10.97623
4    8.986579
5    7.357589
6    6.023884
7    4.931939
8    4.03793
9    3.305978
10    2.706706
11    2.216063
12    1.814359
13    1.485472

As you can see, after 13 time periods, the inflation rate is at the target 1.5%, as previously suggested. Or, another thought is to change the rate when the total coins reaches a certain amount. For instance, at 20bil coins, change to 16.4%, at 27bil change to 13.4%, etc until at 70bil coins change to 1.5%. Just an idea.
