OMG TheSeven, I freaking love you, you just saved me a very very large sum of money!! I'm now going to back up all my wallets and I'm putting them on a flash drive, and straight into my parents safety deposit box! Thanks again so much!!
Put them on at least two flash drives of different brands. Flash media aren't exactly known for their reliability... Smiley

I like it, but a bit too complex for a logo. My vote is to leave Peer to Peer on top but remove both the year and "cryptocoin."

5) ALL of us completely dropping out of bitcointalk and carrying on our conversations at ppcointalk.org, each of us leaving on all ppcoin threads something like the following "THIS THREAD IS MOVED TO PPCOINTALK.ORG - JOIN US!"

+1, it's getting messy here... but not sure if it's feasible. We should at least try it though Smiley

Ok, here goes...

THIS THREAD IS MOVING TO PPCOINTALK.ORG - PLEASE CONTINUE IT THERE!

PLEASE JOIN US THERE!

I'd like to see SunnyKing say he's moving over there. Then I'll follow. No offense Excelsior but if the Dev isn't moving.... Well ;o)

We are still in the growing stages and let's be honest, lot's of people here will be looking at other coins in the next several months and by coins, I don't mean the sudden influx of p-n-d, premine, get rich quick coins. If we jump over to ppcointalk will we have the same exposure we do here?

PPC has  maintained or exceeded profitability of 95% of the other coins out there over the last few days despite the massive turbulance. I just don't think removing this marketing channel at this crucial time is the best route. This is our strongest point of information right now and to say it is suddenly done I believe is to remove one of our best advertisements.

I vote we wait to see what happens at the conference. With what happened today with Dwolla who knows, maybe all of the attendees will be arrested by homeland security. lol though I hope not.

Sorry for the rambling post, I'm just not sure that totally abandoning this thread is the best move at this point.

*edit it should probably read "exceeded profitability of 85-90% of the other coins" I was just shooting from the hip before, but I'll leave it as I typed it originally. I just don't want to get called to the block because someone disagrees with me.

Yeah, I'm with Irishmick on this one. I will use ppcointalk, but we need to keep this thread open because it's our main connection to the Bitcoin community. We're not strong enough yet to completely separate ourselves from this forum. This thread acts as an advertisement for ppcoin.

I would make the suggestion to Sunny to add a link to the first post of this thread to ppcointalk.org, that way we can also use this thread as an advertisement for the new forum. He should also probably link to it from the main website, rather than bitcointalk's alt-coin forum. This will help to build up the community.

At least at litecoin.net the pool threads don't fare well. The pool owners openned threads in the pools area there but seldom answers questions althought they are all active in pool threads at bitcointalk.

Good points, well taken.

I guess we just use both for now. Probably in the future the transition will just happen organically and naturally.


On a side note... how do we grow ppcoin from here? What truly needs to be done?

Just my thought(s), but Merchants, lots of Merchants. A pretty face (icon, website) is also great and helps acceptance both by merchants and consumers.

Not sure if most of you have seen this or not but Sunny offered a 100 ppc bounty (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=142295.0) to the first 20 merchants to accept ppc (Not sure if it was intended to be payable to those convincing merchants only or to merchants also). I added 5 ppc to the first 20. I am not ppc rich by any means, but 100 ppc is a small price to pay. It'd be awesome if others could chip in a ppc or two and get the bounties up enough that merchants and those who could convince merchants get excited about doing so.

Without excitement by those not participating in this thread we are just spinning our own wheels.

http://www.ppcointalk.org/index.php?topic=42.0

Its just a matter of reaching people...the reality is that for the time being many of us post on both forums currently until people start to migrate (if they do).  Bitcointalk is obviously a more established forum, no question about that.  And many of us have vested interests in more than just PPC so it makes sense that we are here.  Its sort of a cache 22, nobody wants to post there until everybody is posting there Wink

And monetarymetals, I like where you are going with the stacked coins at the bottom.  In reality we'd probably have use for both images so its good you have the designs ready.

As I said in the other forum, I'm divided on these new ones. I know I don't like the blue one. The all gold one looks too plain. For me, currently it's between the one with the leaf and the one with the green background. I think I might still be leaning in the direction of the leaf.

What would the one with the green background look like with the text around the outside of the coin? It looks a little plain because that's missing.

Here's a random question. How much would a bounty need to be to get a coin-control interface coded for ppcoin? I'm thinking of one that was GUI, allowed you to control coins by address, set priority of addresses for spending, control change addresses, toggle coins available for generating stake, show coin-age, calculate likelihood of generating stake at any point and show total interest earned. If it integrates the secure offline storage while generating stake so much the better.

Beyond that I'd like to see it provide detailed information about the network. I want to see how many other coins out there are generating stake, changes to the block reward over time, the network hash rate, block size, number of nodes connected, etc., etc. with both numbers and graphical views. It shouldn't require command-line interface to get reports like a rich list, etc. Imagine how many more people would hold onto their coins if they could watch their holdings ranked against the global rich list in real-time. There are a million ppcoins for sale on btc-e right now, people aren't sitting around generating stake, they're trying to earn BTC.

We're in a popularity war here and having the coolest client that blows bitcoin-qt out of the water would be a major coup.

Here is the green one with the text on the coin...



And I was playing around with Paint and made this. It's the same coin with a carbon fiber background. It's not a serious submission. I thought it was funny, so I posted it.

Well, that would at least need a link to a specific ppcointalk thread Smiley

We are still in the growing stages and let's be honest, lot's of people here will be looking at other coins in the next several months and by coins, I don't mean the sudden influx of p-n-d, premine, get rich quick coins. If we jump over to ppcointalk will we have the same exposure we do here?

I think it would be a good idea to declutter this thread. We definitely should not move this thread over there as is. Instead we should keep it here, and start moving individual discussions out of it. For example the whole logo talk, and some others. This one should stay open primarily for announcements, but possibly also for discussion about improvement of ppcoin itself (in contrast to the ecosystem around it). Not sure where support questions should go...

Looks to me like Sunny is already there, at least to some degree. I think the only reason more people aren't there already is that there was an email confirmation problem. FuzzyBear took care of that and now I'm happily part of the Peercoin discussions. Peercoin is the main reason a registered on this forum and if there is place devoted to it then that's even better.  Grin

I couldnt resist another attempt at a coin using parts of the updated designs recently seen here.

First I decided to move away from the PP logo approach and decided to look at representing the meaning behind the coin, so I decided to look at displaying time (to show POS) and the ability to transfer anywhere (using a travellers sundial). Also switched to a more metallic silver, to me it feels more futuristic, especially in direct contrast to the copper type industrial/traditional interior.

Mainly though this is just some fun and is sort of addictive!

Here it is  Smiley



Edit, heres a verly light gold/copper version:

Just wanted to bump my question here.  How much bounty would it take to get a coin-control interface coded for ppcoin?

Maybe I should I post this in Project Development?

That sounds like it could be a pretty cool interface. Personally I'd be happy with just some basics like setting up addresses and mining. A kick starter for that and the other things you've mentioned sounds good though. I certainly could pitch in, at least a bit.
