I think many talked about Bitcoin on TV and already all people know about bitcoin. but it would be a nice idea if we advertise it on tv so all people can accept it.

I've looked into this coin for some colleagues of mine and found some issues.

First, upnp is disabled in the code itself, meaning clients can't connect to each other, only nodes - of which there currently only seems to be one that is active. I fixed that code and recompiled the wallet, but either that one node isn't relaying peers or nobody else is running the coin with a connection to that node.

Second, the old wallet issue is a simple one. The reason you get an error when you try opening an old wallet.dat is because of the 0.2 versioning. The old wallets were 1.0+ wallets, so when you try to open an old wallet, it thinks you're trying to open the wallet with an old client. Fixed that.

Third - Yesterday I had a colleague send a large amount of coins to the exchange with the custom wallet I had to make for him because the one made by the dev cannot open old wallets (see above) and they were never confirmed despite showing up on the then functional block explorer. However, I was able to send a small amount of coins (1000) to the exchange from the same wallet afterwards, and they *were* confirmed by the exchange.

Fourth - The node that is online is not relaying blocks from the chain, making it impossible to sync. I expect that this is the same issue the explorer is having.


I've found all the issues I have encountered to be obvious from a coding perspective and the fixes trivial at best. I don't know anything about the state of the chain, or why the nodes have stopped relaying blocks. So take all this for what you will.

It looks like Polo have upated to the new chain.

I haven't tested it but deposit address now starts with 2 Smiley

Polo has indeed updated.

I think all of those ideas are great. I personally do not need staking notifications popping up nonstop, nor do I need my entire staking history (though the option to look back on it wouldn't hurt). A responsive wallet is most important for me.

Feel free to give this one a whirl:

Pinkcoin 1.2 Experimental Windows Wallet

There's some bugs I'm working on squishing, like sometimes there's notifications of old stakes when you make new stakes, and changing the setting to view all transactions isn't saving after you close and reopen Pinkcoin, but all the new code is strictly on the UI end, specifically on the transaction history display and in the options menu, so it's safe to use, and will make the wallet handle less like a brick.

Let me know if you notice any other bugs I haven't mentioned though. And I haven't touched notifications, fwiw.

I've been doing some testing with larger long-term staking wallets and it seems limiting the coin fragmentation is only part of the problem. Another huge element turns out to be the fact that the wallet loads your entire transaction history when you open the wallet, including all of your stakes and orphans, regardless of your filters. An experimental wallet I've been working on that only loads the last weeks worth of staking history (full history of send-receives loads normally) has had dramatic results for responsiveness on wallets that have staked tens of thousands of times.

There's still some cosmetic bugs I'm trying to squash, but implementation ideas are welcome. At the moment I've just hardcoded in a week and put an option to enable full histories in the Settings -> Options -> Display window.

Personally I don't see the need to pull up stakes going back further than a week unless your stake history is rather light in the first place (hence the option to disable it). But if people want more control over that I can implement a slider or textbox to enter the number of days to load stakes.

I'm also toying with the idea of implementing an option to disable staking notifications - so heavy staker's can still enjoy standard send-receive notifications without being annoyed every few minutes with a staking popup.

Thoughs?

I am picking up this coin and I will be taking over it's development. I backed Cryptzo both to the Pinkcoin team and the community. Now I'm going to deal with the mess he left. I have been wrestling with demons of my own, but I'm back, and I'm going to get Pink and Seed back on track if it kills me. Expect some updates soon, I'm just finishing up some stuff for Pinkcoin at the moment before I jump on this.

With that said, I don't have any time for trolls. My attention is on the coin, and I'll be working on it even if I'm the only one that is. So fling mud at each other, or me if you want. I'll be busy working on the coin, and I'll only have time for people that really want to help.

I'm going to talk to a couple of people and see if we can get a modded thread going.

If you have any questions or anything you need to say, feel free to pm me.

Thanks,
Sumgye

Wallet Update

PinkCoin 1.2 Release Candidate (lite)


I am currently testing some wallet improvements, especially for people with a large number of coins (1m+) that are continuously staking. Please make a backup of your wallet.dat and test these wallets, especially if you've been having issues with the wallet hanging/freezing. Do not expect this wallet to solve the problem right away, it will happen slowly over time as you continue staking.

These improvements were made on the lite wallet to make it easier to track down problems. Once I am sure the lite wallet is running stably I will port the new updates to Pinkcoin 2.0.

PinkCoin Windows Wallet 1.2 RC1
PinkCoin Mac OS X Wallet 1.2 RC1


Updates:
Re-calibrated Staking System:
The staking system will consolidate coins in larger chunks. Over time this will reduce PC workload, reduce orphans, reduce the overall weight on the network, make staking more consistent, and the wallet more responsive regardless of the number of coins you have in it.

Network Weight Algorithm:
Estimated time to stake should now be more accurate.

New hardcoded nodes:
Pinkcoin.conf should no longer be necessary to just connect to the network.

Updated security:
The windows wallet is updated to OpenSSL 1.0.1L, the Mac wallet is updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2. The wallets include the necessary fixes to make them compatible with clients running previous versions.

This is a Recommended, but not a Mandatory update.
If you would like to continue running the 2.0 wallet until a new release is made, please feel free. But if you are having issues with your wallet, please try this one for a few days and see if the situation improves.

If you have any issues with the wallet please do not hesitate to reply here or contact me or fayoling via PM.

Thanks,
Sumgye

Sumgye, all his 100+k, dumped... that would be from the address on his signature. His OTHER address is a bit more telling though:PTz9c7gsDu14FnD6tPFFUPy9rihVXH7GTx. You can see how he has DUMPED 23.4 million OF HIS TOTAL OF JUST OVER 25 MILLION. Do you think Sonnyboy that capitals are warranted?



*sigh*

I do generally make a point not to engage you Barabbas, but it's been a while, so for old time sakes, here you go.

I've never had anywhere near 25m pink. That is indeed my address, but you do realize that part of the way staking works is that the wallet resets coin ages by sending coins to itself, right? And the explorer doesn't differentiate between self-sent coins and coins sent to others. So, in simplest terms, every time I stake 1m coins, the explorer says I both Sent 1m more coins and Received 1m more coins. That's just how it works.

As for why it's not staking right now, well I haven't actually had access to that wallet in over a month now, since it's stuck on a hard drive in a broken PC.

As for the 100k in my Sig address, those all went into testing the Anon feature back at the end of May for crying out loud, and I honestly don't remember what address they went to after that. But you're really reaching on that one. As if anyone would have minded me 'dumping' 100k at ~40 sats in the first place.

Sorry Sumgye but you should know that trying to bullshit at this stage is an exercise in futility. No amount of smoke and mirrors will change the FACTS. But you are welcome to keep on trying although, since you have your pinkarmy believing any crap you say, probably a more dignify way would be to jujst avoid the thing altogether rather than put yourself even deeper in the mud.

May I suggest to try to salvage somewhat the disaster that your friend perpetrated at SEED instead? I have even already suggested the way to do it. It is a GOOD, viable way. Here? nothing that you can say or do will change the FACTS. Pure and simple.

Hmm. I just went to try and find another wallet with huge sends and receives and realized the explorer seems to account for that now. I'm not entirely sure what's going on with all that 'send' and 'receive'. I know I've got more than 1.7m on that computer right now (I should actually have about 3m in that wallet). It must be in some change address. I'm not really sure. What I can tell you is that I never had anywhere near 25m coins. Not even close. I did do a LOT of testing on the anon system months ago, and my coins have shifted quite a bit in my wallet, and truth be told I did sell about 3 million coins over the course of the last 6 months, most directly to other members of the PinkCoin team, though I haven't sold any in over two months now. I have also given away & contributed about 2m coins to support various projects and people, if anyone's curious.

You're welcome to believe whatever you want.

As for the SEED thing you mentioned? I helped him a lot on that already. He knows he can ask for my help if he needs it, but whatever he does with that coin is his business, not mine. I know Fay has a lot of interest in SEED right now, but I don't. My only connection to it is that the dev is a friend of mine, and I helped him with some of the more technical aspects of how to actually create it in the first place, and that's where it ends for me. He's done a pretty good job figuring things out since then, and I wish him all the best, but it has nothing to do with me.

Any word on when Seed will be on an exchange?

ready to dump already? :p

I'd quite like to see what I could buy them at actually. I didn't grab any from the ICO myself, sorta regretting it at the moment.

Ok, windows users: here's the password protected wallet:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/21yccfxu0njdxid/seedcoin-qt.zip?dl=0

Password will be posted at the very top of the OP at launch.

If you downloaded the address wallet to participate in the ico, be sure to delete everything in %appdata%/seedcoin except for your wallet.dat. DO NOT DELETE wallet.dat. Back it up as well, just for good practice.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][SEED] SeedCoin | Buy/Mine SEED & Grow Coinbase | 1000x Growth Period on: October 04, 2014, 03:59:03 PM
I wanted to give an update for everyone. Testing is finished and has gone well. Launch time currently looks good, but Mac wallets wont be ready by then. Sorry about that.

One thing that we did discover during testing is that our math is a 'little off' for 1000x for the week at 269% interest, and I wanted to let you know. It was calculated based on the rate a coin would have to grow to reach 1000x in 7 days, which is absolutely true. But it was clearly stated in the OP that the interest would be 269% daily, which is a different thing altogether. That will create 269% more coins for you, on top of the ones you already have. So instead of 1 coin staking into 2.69 coins on day one of the growth period, it will PRODUCE 2.69 coins, and leave you with 3.69 coins to stake tomorrow, when the same thing will happen again, hence compound interest.

Anyway, long story short, I've re-done the math, and with 269% interest a single coin mined continuously over a week will produce nearly 10k coins, not 1k coins. Oops! Anyway, we talked about it and decided to leave it as is, since 269% daily interest during the growth period is the advertised spec. I just wanted to let people know, since the maximum number of coins that could be produced, depending on the number of coins mined and how many coins overall get staked, is now roughly 10m, not 1m.

I've updated the graph to show the growth:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1b1_BKfRxuOeAzvhzmldG1P0d0bxZAEQsXXmcBDHedTY/edit#gid=43161177

As for the ICO, coins will go out once they mature after POW begins - which will happen after block 121. Those blocks will go by pretty fast while the difficulty is still ramping up. Testing suggests it will take roughly 10-15 minutes.

it seems dev can control the price, lol

lets see what happened next .



The price is decided by the amount of coins bought through the ICO, mined in the PoW stage, and staked in the growth period. The price is determined by math, not me.

Cryptzo will never be in charge of the buywall anyway. That will be left in the hands of the pinkcoin team, or possibly a major exchange. It will also be static, and once set, will not move up or down effectively setting a permanent market floor.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][SEED] SeedCoin | Buy/Mine SEED & Grow Coinbase | 1000x Growth Potential on: September 25, 2014, 02:11:58 AM
why would PINK coin associate themselves with a premined ICO scam?

Because we're confident that it's not a scam. Cryptzo is a friend of mine in real life, I've known him for 5 years. He's an apt and capable programmer, and I've been helping him with this project.

As for POD, he can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he would prefer to stay anonymous. I'm willing to complete POD on behalf of SEED if that's what the community here wants, as I am a contributing developer on the project, but I have to make clear that my primary interest is in developing PinkCoin. With SeedCoin, I'm more or less just trying to help my friend that I've known for years with his project, and the PinkCoin team has agreed to support that decision.

Ultimately I believe the primary reason for the Proof of Developer program is to provide the community some security in their investment, because we are all tired of scams. I know Cryptzo personally, and I assure you, as I have assured my team, that Cryptzo is capable and trustworthy, and I personally guarantee the legitimacy of this project as it's been described.

No, no fork. I just fell asleep at the keyboard and my nodes got pummelled to death. It'll sync now, and I'll keep an eye on it. Gonna talk to the guys about getting some new nodes up.

In the meantime, if you do have trouble connecting (quite possible with the sudden surge of people all trying to sync up at once) you can add the following addnodes to your pinkcoin.conf:

Code:
addnode=86.121.18.190
addnode=189.149.149.215
addnode=209.95.36.152
addnode=69.168.186.177
addnode=92.222.38.197
addnode=178.32.88.50
addnode=71.84.193.132


The file needs to be in your %appdata%/pinkcoin folder in windows, or $HOME/Library/Application Support/Pinkcoin/ on Mac OS X. If you don't already have one (there isn't one by default) just create one using any basic text editor, like Notepad or TextEditor.

This isn't absolutely necessary, but will help you get more connections initially, and thus sync faster.

And for what it's worth, you only really need the main nodes to get your initial connection to the decentralized network. Once you've made half a dozen connections to the network you're unlikely to ever see this sort of problem again.

I like the idea of this, and it has potential. But what is so different from some of the other coins out there. Pinkcoin has a bot that exchanges coins, plays games like poker etc. Has all your commands and then some.

You say that you will be able to shop at Walmart with this? How would that work, would Walmart not have to collaborate with you on this?

I saw your tweet i was going to ignore since it's more like an ad campaign, What's pinkcoin twitter exchange  ? Where's the bot?

http://crypto.pink ---- your website offers no infomation ?

PwP is still a thing in motions. But due to community interest we have switched focus to the Poker platform. Which for the last few days actually got put aside to create the Twitter Bot exchange. Good old Scope creep on multiple projects Smiley

It is all starting to tie together on its own as we delve deeper into everything. So having the ability to buy Pinkcoin with Fiat is definitely in our sights.

Perhaps someone should clarify what that means, because simply put as it is in that sentence, doesn't reflect the alternatives (only one, really) to achieve this: In what refers to the USA -and many other countries- the ONLY way to do it, without spending a lot of money, is through an intermediary, such as Moolah (there are many others). This is very easy to accomplish and in the wallet it is simply a link to Moolah's site. That's it. But, clearly it is NOT what people want, i.e.: direct conversion from fiat to PINK without the added fees collected by the intermediary of choice.

THAT can only be achieved, legally -and legality is a requirement, not an option-, by depositing a very large amount of money to get the licenses needed in the US and in other countries. In other words: It is NOT doable.

Fair enough. Let me translate.

"...having the ability to buy Pinkcoin with Fiat is definitely in our sights."

Translation:

"We're looking into the possibility of offering Pinkcoin for fiat."

How? Easy. With all the fud plaguing Crypto, we plan on 'looking into it' by discussing the idea in detail with a lawyer.

I seem to have lost my 60000 pink coins help!  I tried to upgrade to the new wallet after experiencing a can't load blk files msg.  I then googled a fix which was to save wallet.dat and delete all other files and reload.  Thats where I am now and can get the new wallet to load but no coins.  I then tried loading old wallet and now no coins.  I have now 4 different wallet files and for the life of me can't figure this out.  Anybody able to help?  At this point my guess is to send someone the file and hopefully your honest enough to send me the retrieved coins to my new wallet.  Any takers? 

Hmm. Yeah don't delete any wallet files until you're sure which one has the coins. Which wallet.dat file has the bigger file size?

The first one...That was a good point.  Every time I reloaded it created a new wallet. One is a old backup as well I think.  Can I just drag this file into the new wallet files and load?

Yeah, the first one (biggest one) is the one with all your coins. Close your wallet, *copy* (don't move) your original backup to the folder where it keeps creating new wallet.dat's, replacing the one you already have there, and open the wallet again. You should have your coins back. PM me if you don't.
