Bitcoin is facing the wall with its saturated mempool and high transaction fees. There is even the threat of a hardfork happening this year. There is division in the community about the solutions to be implemented, whether it is Segwit, Lightning network, Bitcoin Unlimited or simply doing nothing.

While many are pondering about which form will take the new Bitcoin, the solution already exists and is there. The new, better Bitcoin is called Bitcoin Plus. Many are now realizing this including me, that's why moving from BTC into XBC is a logical step, at least for me.


I do not think Bitcoinplus is a realistic alternative for bitcoin because the user base is not global and it is not distributed evenly enough.Also it is not like bitcoin really because it is not forked directly from bitcoin code.Too many bagholders with big coin amounts dumping constantly will not allow price to remain high and in the end it will remain here or go back to only a few cents value but only time will tell as only 10% of total coins are mined so far.Developers can only do so much but if bagholders and community do nothing I can not see anything big in the future as there are many coins to choose from.

BitcoinPlus Market Cap remains around $6,500,000 which is superb. It has natural ups and downs. It has minimal coin supply so yes it can be easily manipulated by a relatively small amount of capital. See the last couple of pumps beginning and end of July for instance. Every coin goes through these cycles. There is nothing that XBC Team can do to stop that. Outside of these pumps I don't see bagholders dumping. Liquidity isn't great on the XBC Market on Poloniex which makes the price extremely volatile and over reacts to even a few XBC being traded.

Other than the top coins, all markets on Poloniex have less BTC then a year ago due to the decline in Poloniex Trust from Market Makers. Every person I know, has drastically reduced their exposure to Poloniex and moved to other exchanges. Total Poloniex Volume is massively down compared to a year ago. However, overtime as Poloniex reputation improves again, market makers should come back to Poloniex and liquidity on the smaller coins (such as XBC) should increase. Manipulating prices or fake volume is absolutely something XBC Project will NOT entertain and be a part of.

You are absolutely right in that the XBC user base is small compared to the larger coins and prior to the Current Development this was the Number 1 priority for the XBC Project.

However, as the priority is now updating the XBC Code base so that it is on a par with BTC so that we can actually piggyback developing technology and even develop our own, all funds are diverted into that. In the background you can see our Freelance Dev updating the entire BitcoinPlus code base so that we will be based on Bitcoin but Proof of Stake. The intention at the moment is to also keep the TOR feature and our encrypted messaging feature. These are big differences. Once the updates are complete the XBC Project will start the Marketing side of BitcoinPlus again.

It is not simple process. We are trying to avoid any hard forks and we are trying to make everything as seamless as possible. It may take many months to get to where we want to be but we WILL get there.

XBC has made good progress but only the rich get richer and those who have the most money to buy coins and accumulate large bags can do no work and get the most returned due to proof of stake concept.Of course large mining farms can do this with bitcoin but bitcoin is better distributed.Bitcoinplus can only hope to fill some niche use case such as some type of settlement layer with easy privacy and security,efficiency improvements but why bother when we can already use bitcoin segwit for this?There are many better options than XBC where one or two large bagholders do not dominate the staking process and price is stable exchange rate.

As with ALL coins there are bagholders. That is the risk you take with all coins. As only 10% of all coins are currently minted there is plenty of scope for people to accumulate their own bags.

Is Bittrex not a better option than Poloniex for the main exchange for XBC liquidity?

I agree. Bittrex would be a great secondary exchange for XBC. However. As has previously been discussed numerous times on here, Bittrex require very large fees just to review the coins code with no agreement in place at the end of the review that XBC would be listed. Bittrex also require funds allocated to act as market makers. Priority for XBC is wallet development. Everything is reviewed every few months, so who knows in the future.

XBC can neither be hyped nor "promoted" as an investment.Also making market predictions etc etc aren't doable.XBC like ANY altcoin can go up or down in price and the 20% stake is only an incentive to mine the coin into existence just like any PoW miner with the most hashing power can do the same thing.

New features in 0.8 and 0.9 Bitcoin codebase

Bitcoin 0.8

“Bloom filter” support in the network protocol for sending only relevant transactions to lightweight clients.
contrib/verifysfbinaries is a shell-script to verify that the binary downloads at sourceforge have not been tampered with. If you are able, you can help make everybody’s downloads more secure by running this occasionally to check PGP signatures against download file checksums.

contrib/spendfrom is a python-language command-line utility that demonstrates how to use the “raw transactions” JSON-RPC api to send coins received from particular addresses (also known as “coin control”).
New/changed settings (command-line or bitcoin.conf file)
dbcache : controls LevelDB memory usage.
par : controls how many threads to use to validate transactions. Defaults to the number of CPUs on your machine, use -par=1 to limit to a single CPU.

txindex : maintains an extra index of old, spent transaction ids so they will be found by the getrawtransaction JSON-RPC method.

reindex : rebuild block and transaction indices from the downloaded block data.

New JSON-RPC API Features

lockunspent / listlockunspent allow locking transaction outputs for a period of time so they will not be spent by other processes that might be accessing the same wallet.

addnode / getaddednodeinfo methods, to connect to specific peers without restarting.

importprivkey now takes an optional boolean parameter (default true) to control whether or not to rescan the blockchain for transactions after importing a new private key.

Default block size increase for miners. (see https://gist.github.com/gavinandresen/7670433#086-accept-into-block)
Remove the all-outputs-must-be-greater-than-CENT-to-qualify-as-free rule for relaying (see https://gist.github.com/gavinandresen/7670433#086-relaying)

Lower maximum size for free transaction creation (see https://gist.github.com/gavinandresen/7670433#086-wallet)

-OSX block chain database corruption fixes

-Update leveldb to 1.13

-Use fcntl with F_FULLSYNC instead of fsync on OSX

-Use native Darwin memory barriers

-Replace use of mmap in leveldb for improved reliability (only on OSX)

-Fix nodes forwarding transactions with empty vins and getting banned

-Network code performance and robustness improvements

-Additional debug.log logging for diagnosis of network problems, log timestamps by default

-Fix Bitcoin-Qt startup crash when clicking dock icon on OSX

-Fix memory leaks in CKey::SetCompactSignature() and Key::SignCompact()

-Fix rare GUI crash on send

-Various small GUI, documentation and build fixes

Bitcoin 0.9.0

Autotools build system
For 0.9.0 we switched to an autotools-based build system instead of individual (q)makefiles.
Using the standard “./autogen.sh; ./configure; make” to build Bitcoin-Qt and bitcoind makes it easier for experienced open source developers to contribute to the project.


Be sure to check doc/build-*.md for your platform before building from source.
Bitcoin-cli
Another change in the 0.9 release is moving away from the bitcoind executable functioning both as a server and as a RPC client. The RPC client functionality (“tell the running bitcoin daemon to do THIS”) was split into a separate executable, ‘bitcoin-cli’. The RPC client code will eventually be removed from bitcoind, but will be kept for backwards compatibility for a release or two.
walletpassphrase RPC
The behavior of the walletpassphrase RPC when the wallet is already unlocked has changed between 0.8 and 0.9.
The 0.8 behavior of walletpassphrase is to fail when the wallet is already unlocked:
> walletpassphrase 1000
walletunlocktime = now + 1000
> walletpassphrase 10
Error: Wallet is already unlocked (old unlock time stays)


The new behavior of walletpassphrase is to set a new unlock time overriding the old one:
> walletpassphrase 1000
walletunlocktime = now + 1000
> walletpassphrase 10
walletunlocktime = now + 10 (overriding the old unlock time)


Transaction malleability-related fixes

This release contains a few fixes for transaction ID (TXID) malleability issues:
-nospendzeroconfchange command-line option, to avoid spending zero-confirmation change
IsStandard() transaction rules tightened to prevent relaying and mining of mutated transactions
Additional information in listtransactions/gettransaction output to report wallet transactions that conflict with each other because they spend the same outputs.
Bug fixes to the getbalance/listaccounts RPC commands, which would report incorrect balances for double-spent (or mutated) transactions.
New option: -zapwallettxes to rebuild the wallet’s transaction information

Transaction Fees
This release drops the default fee required to relay transactions across the network and for miners to consider the transaction in their blocks to 0.01mBTC per kilobyte.
Note that getting a transaction relayed across the network does NOT guarantee that the transaction will be accepted by a miner; by default, miners fill their blocks with 50 kilobytes of high-priority transactions, and then with 700 kilobytes of the highest-fee-per-kilobyte transactions.
The minimum relay/mining fee-per-kilobyte may be changed with the minrelaytxfee option. Note that previous releases incorrectly used the mintxfee setting to determine which low-priority transactions should be considered for inclusion in blocks.
The wallet code still uses a default fee for low-priority transactions of 0.1mBTC per kilobyte. During periods of heavy transaction volume, even this fee may not be enough to get transactions confirmed quickly; the mintxfee option may be used to override the default.

Note:All figures re fees to be converted to relevant XBC ratios etc.

All the above changes to get us to 0.9.3 are also listed here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TYxjS3S33lFTM87OYoMEWymwzH3e33h4encJ6cor1uk/edit?usp=sharing

XBC is not an easy coin to wok on due to some of the extra features we have and keeping them.It would be easier if we were a vanilla codebase but the reality is the opposite.Also gutting out the codebase from the beginning back to a starting point and keeping the native tor wallet and the messaging was no easy task not to mention the fact this is all being done without a hard fork (soft forks only) to cause the least disruption to exchanges/service providers and users.There is still a lot of work ahead (BIPs/newer version changes etc) before we are even ready to activate segregated witness.

Bitcoin Plus is doing perfectly fine. XBC has been performing very well in the past few months, with a 10X increase in value, more than Bitcoin itself. It's hard to ask for more with such an achievement in a very short amount of time. While it would be nice to see it listed on new exchanges in the near future, that is not a necessity.  I agree it would be foolish to pay large amounts for new listings. Money is better invested in technology development.  When the fundamentals get better and stronger (as it is the case right now with XBC development), it naturally attracts investors. XBC doesn't need Bittrex. Let's change that state of mind. If anything, it is Bittrex (or any other exchange) that does need XBC.

Coinexchange and Cryptopia are good markets for XBC, even if volume is low at this time, it will slowly increase with time, as more and more new users get into the cryptosphere.

We have been working on the Ultraprune, it is going to be required going forward. Again the challenge is that the changes brought in by Ultraprune are partially implemented, it is when Bitcoin moved to LevelDB. Novacoin added LevelDB but not UltraPrune or many of the other changes introduced during the major refactor to storage of everything except the wallet.

Peter is running a version of Bitcoin Plus that does not have LevelDB at all. The LevelDB implementation was at odds to Bitcoin's so he has rolled it back to Berkley DB and will add LevelDB in a Bitcoin standard fashion.

Anyone currently trying to compile the code on ubuntu with latest openssl version might get the following error:

Quote
tor/aes.c:93:18: error: field 'evp' has incomplete type
EVP_CIPHER_CTX evp;
^
makefile.unix:285: recipe for target 'obj/aes.o' failed
make: *** [obj/aes.o] Error 1


We are implementing autotools and Peter is doing the ultraprune.This leads to the split of daemon from GUI.
