I for myself enjoy the updates here, as I open this forum much more often than Peercoin's own forum. So @Sentinelrv, I hope you do not really have plans to cease posting updates at Bitcointalk.

And to @Verdell & @Paul33:

I really fail to see why you're still posting here. Why don't you just sell your PPC and buy some hypecoin? The only reason I can find is that you're both speculating on lower prices. I don't know if there's a way to short Peercoins (at least I don't know a lending service), but achieving a nice entry price to buy up PPC can also be a reason for downward price manipulation.

I would always guarantee that Peercoin's price in a year will be much higher than now if:
- v0.7, cold minting & peer assets are released for mainchain
- the transition to modern code has at least begun

The website and Binance are secondary things. Even if all you want is a pump, you need at least a reason for a pump, and a website refresh already isn't enough. You need something "real" to market. For example, EOS is successful with it's promise of "0.5 seconds blocks" (even if this can only achieved with a pretty centralized design).

Please read this post (again?) and look at the charts.

All coins have fallen a LOT with respect to December/January. There are some few exceptions that just had a pump (EOS) or generally did better than average (Decred, Ethereum), but almost all the remaining coins fell significantly more than Bitcoin. 85% losses with respect to the ATH is "the norm".

The reason is simple: Altcoin investors assume (we could also say, they know, as this happens in every bear market) that Bitcoin holds its value a bit better than almost all altcoins when general cryptocurrency prices are declining. And so they sell their altcoins and hold Bitcoins instead. There is also the part of the audience that needs to sell their altcoins to BTC prior to "cashing out" to fiat - another reason why altcoins fall more sharply than BTC in bear markets.

I'm a cryptocurrency user since 2013 and already went through a whole bull/bear market cycle, so I think I know what I'm talking about. Wink In 2014 the pattern was almost identic: Bitcoin falling slowly, altcoins crashing hard.

To break that "altcoin curse" and escape the bear market, a coin needs to bring up something really good & unique. PPC 0.7's cold minting can be such a feature. A website redesign isn't.

D5000 I respect what you say and agree with most of the comments you make but peercoin needs a war chest and should implement a 5 pct miner tax that would assure being able too hire top devolpers and marketing and as I've stated many times the website does nothing for people who are new too peercoin

I’m referring only to the website updates, where I will take a “when it’s finished” approach from now on. All other updates will continue as normal.

Also, I wouldn’t waste your time arguing. He’s still trying to argue for a miner tax when we’ve already explained the following points numerous times...

- A miner tax results in increased inflation of the supply due to the dynamic PoW block reward.
- The Peercoin Foundation already has enough money to do what it needs to do. More doesn’t help.
- A web team is already hired, however content can only be done by volunteers on the team with expertise.
- Proper marketing first needs something to market, such as the incomplete items mentioned by d5000.
- Being a “top paid developer” does not automatically make them an expert in Peercoin’s codebase.
- There is a very limited pool of developers with the necessary experience to choose from that can help.

It would be most helpful if he stops fighting with the team and accept the reality of the above points.

I'm not saying your wrong, I really don't know the answer, but can you elaborate on why cold minting would matter when other projects use cold forging? How is cold minting a differentiator? Or do you mean that even if it is not unique, it will still give PPC more attractive features which will therefore increase the price? Maybe I don't understand the technology of cold minting, so I want to make sure I'm following correctly.

Maybe I don't understand the technology of cold minting, so I want to make sure I'm following correctly.
As far as I know, Peercoin's cold minting system is unique in that it doesn't provide incentives for the formation of pools. "Pools"  - nodes that allow other coin holders to mint with their node - are possible, but the pool operator cannot move the rewards, so there is no way to form a "variance reduction pool". That means that it won't be attractive to mint at a big pool, because you only get rewards when your address "finds a block", not when the pool as a whole finds a block (and divides the rewards to minters). Thus, the only advantage of pools is that you haven't to bother about having the client online 24/7, but the coinage-based reward discourages that anyway.

Big pools are generally seen as a threat to the PoS security model, as they could accumulate enough stake for a successful attack. One of the reasons cold minting wasn't implemented earlier was the fear of pools forming, until sigmike found the solution.

There was an altcoin (a PPC clone, obviously Wink ) that tried something similar a couple of weeks ago but with some OP_RETURN magic and mandatory fees for pools (I don't remember its name  Embarrassed). I think Peercoin's solution is more elegant.

Much more important than "uniqueness", however, is that cold minting would allow to increase the security of Peercoin. Proof of stake currencies can only be secure if a large percentage of the coins are participating in minting, without forming big pools (see above). The current cold minting design would very likely increase this percentage significantly.

All I'm gonna say is almost every alt has suffered a serious decline this year. Most are returning to last years lows. Incredible after the 2017 bull market Didn't think prices would fall this much, but they have. Regardless, development continues here slow and steady. PPC will always be a strong project.

the peercoin team has no sense of urgency about anything and they just don’t get it

First of all, you have no idea what is going on behind the scenes, so you are speaking about things you don’t fully understand. Outward appearances do not indicate the current level of activity in the team.

Second, d5000 is correct. Peercoin had little development for several years. Some of you are completely underestimating the amount of time it takes to update Peercoin to where it needs to be. We are currently making great progress and the recent foundation has helped speed certain things up. We are currently in a bear market, so this is the perfect time to get important work done to be ready for when market sentiment changes again.

If one of the devs is here: Is there any possibility to add TaPoS to Peercoin? It could improve "fork resolution" greatly. (I'll propose that in the Peercoin forum if there is no reaction here.)

I don’t know if you will get an answer, but it would probably be best to ask on the forum.

and isn't following the "Not-Invented-Here syndrome".

I don’t think you have to worry about this.

Hear hear.

Glad to hear from u man. Peercoin aint a coin anymore. Its a violent unsaddled horse u will never ride. Only big papas with cash in their pockets could draw profits out of alts, and all the other sheep only can chatter and envy successful peeps that create liquidity for them. Its alright that taxes are high urging people to join crypto where they become easy pray for me.

Good token metrix and will eventually solve the issue that most cryptocurrencies fail to do.Good team and excellent road map. If you will adhere them you can create anything new on this market.

I think this is a profitable investment and should be involved early. It is very promising and promising multiple antennas in the future. Good luck. Cheesy Cheesy
