Beautiful article and so true. The real reason why ppc will be a winner in long term is the pos feature. Many people now don't understand (I tool six months to get my head around it) but when the energy consumption is just too much people will turn to this and other pos coins.

Only 105 pages  on bitcoin talk and there isn't a peercoin slack this has led  too the community not being properly informed about peercoin which has led too the all time low price of peercoin vs bitcoin the community needs to do a much better job of informing the world about peercoin sooner or later the fundamentals behind peercoin will lead to a huge price rise any way

As m4nki posted above, most of our community communicates through either our forum https://talk.peercoin.net/ or our main chat hub: https://peercoin.chat/ The General channel of peercoin.chat is also connected with our Telegram channel: https://telegram.me/peercoin via bots so both sides can communicate with each other. It's better to sign up at peercoin.chat though as there are multiple other channels and our developers usually hang out there and answer questions. We chose the RocketChat platform rather than Slack because it is software we can host and run ourselves.

People who are new too crypto or peercoin don't go too peercoin chat there needs too be more information here on bitcoin talk and there should be a peercoin slack yes eventually the better mouse trap principal will lead too a dramatic rise in peercoin prices but it's in peercoins best interests too get the word out sooner rather then latter and slack and more info on bitcointalk would go long way achieve those goals

I can talk to the team about it, we’ll see. I guess there is no hurt in adding additional platforms.

It is too bad that this grand lady amongst established coins is slipping away from the front pages just like that. The BTC-E downfall probably did not help either but the active participants in this coin could give it some more love with continued media attention. The technique is still interesting as an alternative of PoW.

Well, just check back one page here.  I asked two good questions for the health of the coin and not one response.

Is the ecoining pool still up?  Chrome won't let me log onto it because of something that expired.

Well, just check back one page here.  I asked two good questions for the health of the coin and not one response.  

Sorry, we tried contacting the pool operator for you back when you posted this, but we did not get a response. We will try contacting again. The pool seems to be up and running though. In the meantime, can you confirm whether login is still not working? Have you tried any other browser to see if that helps? I will report back to let you know if we were able to get a response from the pool runner.

Also, I’m not sure if you associated health of the network with a lack of response or mining not working. Peercoin is secured through proof of stake only, so mining can’t effect the health of the network. Also as for lack of response, I explained above that we were not able to get a response from the pool operator. I should have responded here to let you know though, so I apologize for that. The team has been very busy lately getting the v0.6 release ready, so it unfortunately slipped my mind.

I did just try again with two browsers (as I did the first time) and getting this error:

Netscape:
Your connection is not secure
The owner of ecoining.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

The advanced tab in Chrome shows:

ecoining.com normally uses encryption to protect your information. When Google Chrome tried to connect to ecoining.com this time, the website sent back unusual and incorrect credentials. This may happen when an attacker is trying to pretend to be ecoining.com, or a Wi-Fi sign-in screen has interrupted the connection. Your information is still secure because Google Chrome stopped the connection before any data was exchanged.

You cannot visit ecoining.com right now because the website uses HSTS. Network errors and attacks are usually temporary, so this page will probably work later.

Thanks for the additional info.  I was just commenting because I've mined Peercoin before but don't like mining some coins unless I can log into their website.  I am currently mining DEM without logging in but they sent out frequent payments.  ecoining I believe was a longer buildup before payment.

Do I know if peercoin going back too 10 dollars or higher I don't what I feel quite confident about is that a ratio of 4800'peercoins to the bitcoin is not justified too me 300'too 500 peercoins to the bitcoin is realistic target peercoin has many features that are superior too bitcoin and doesn't have the scaling issue bitcoin does nor the huge energy consumption

hrobeersPeercoin Protocol Developer2h
Yesterday we tagged the new v0.6.0 release on Github:

github.com3

peercoin/peercoin

peercoin - Peercoin Official Development Tree
This release uses the leveldb database ported from bitcoin and therefore requires a full blockchain redownload.
At the time of writing, the team is working on the packages for windows, linux and OSX. More elaborate upgrade instructions will be released together with the packages.
Early adopters can already start running the v0.6.0 source code on mainnet.

This version includes a protocol soft fork that activates when 90% of the PoS blocks signal the fork.
After the soft fork activated, v0.5 nodes will still follow the chain (will not fork off) but won't be able to produce valid blocks anymore.
The fork is prevented to activate before Tue 12 Dec 03:40:00 UTC 2017, which should provide enough time for mining pools and exchanges to update without risking to be in the last 10% group.

v0.6 allows to opt-out of checkpoints, the protocol is ready to function without them. However the code is still in the client as a ultimate lifeboat in turbulent times.

Changelog:
- Rebase to bitcoin v0.8 codebase (leveldb backend)
- 90% supermajority softfork including:
    - BIP34: block height in coinbase
    - OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY
- Port of peerunity features into reference client
Stay tuned for more updates.

And if so where can I check to see if I have the latest version?

Thank you.

One reason why I am concerned about the pools is that according to Coinwarz, Peercoin is the most profitable coin to mine.   Is that why it's so hard to post the working pools to this thread?  lol

Edit:

I did just try out ecoining with my miner and it is dead.

I found an old list:

https://peercoin.ecoining.com
https://peercoin.d7.lt
http://give-me-coins.com/peercoin-pool
https://www.multipool.us
http://mining.securepayment.cc/pools/ppcoin/

Another update: one miner wasn't connecting but is working fine and moved to the next pool in the last, while another miner actually connected to ecoining.  But if I don't have automatic payouts checked and I can't log in, the coins will be stuck.  Found an old email from support so going to find out what's up.

Paramind22, the pool operator has still not responded to me. I tried forum, email and Twitter and nothing. I’m not sure what is up.

Also to everyone, once Windows and Linux builds are available we will provide instructions for upgrading.
