Maybe it's time for redesign? New logo, new style, new ANN.

Great!
But can you do it with Proof of Burn or something with theme of main concern we have here?

Like add flames or something? I really don't feel confident enough in my design skills to do complicated yet tasteful job. I'll just make it worse )
It'll look like cheap stock image if I try.

Yeah this is really good! And maybe some subtitle below - Proof of Burn, with special font, I don't which, but this is better.

I would vote for this to be new official logo, if you can create logo and widescreen with higher resolution (1080P and higher - 4K or 2K).

Ok, let's see what others think about it. If people are up for it I'll spend a couple of days trying different stuff and after we choose the best.

Ok, we can set up voting - @d5000 can you do it?
Or maybe voting with Slimcoin  Cool. With 2 address, without private keys, coins would be burnt.

There are a couple of devs and a few active members. Those are only people to decide what's good and what's not I think ) No need for a pool.

Ok, so first video I made.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6vvySW1Yw0
I lack the ending screen - my program shortcut, doesn't have filters (?), to add it. I will improve it in next films, and add to this also.
Tell me if you like it, or not, I'll delete it if it's that bad.

It now has cube within the logo! Like Block, from blockchain. Smart, right? Smiley And I like contrast between circle and cube.

I like the red logo. Even in the version without the flames, the color already is enough for the association with "Proof of Burn". We could use both versions - the simpler one without flames, for example, for the favicon of the website or generally for small logos, like the one Coinmarketcap uses, and the one with flames for all large logos, for example, the splash screen of the client.

@Graham, what's your opinion?

I could set up a voting thread (with the Slimcoin Community account), but is it necessary? If we had many options to consider, we could do it (e.g. if we take into account also the other proposals posted some weeks ago). We could also wait a little bit more for other proposals. But maybe this logo is already OK ...

Yes, thank you! ) I'm all for simple shapes. People tend to try to put everything they can into logos. I think it can have flames of all kind on a banner for example, or some artwork or a t-shirt.

I have covered the PoS resource usage problem on the slimco.in website in the Proof of Stake guide. (Graham, correct me if there's something wrong)

Nothing wrong that I can see, looks good. Maybe an idea to include a reference to AizenSou’s post on the old thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=613213.msg7716530#msg7716530 Fwiw, amongst other things, I'm working my way through all 250-odd pp of the old thread with an aim of collating the technical comments into a coherent whole.

On another matter, I'm pleased to report a significant amount of progress (admittedly the result of a significant amount of effort).

The Slimcoin-specific version of ACME is close to achieving deployment status, it now displays all Slimcoin tx (inc the genesis transaction) and inscriptions: spin-off material: a PR for the website: the anatomy of the Slimcoin genesis block



Front page





Latest  transactions





Geoip-location map of countries hosting Slimcoin nodes (canned, from copy'n'pasta of server-hosted client's response)





And the one that took up most of the effort ... a list of inscriptions on mainnet:



Those following along closely at home will note the inclusion of the SPARQL raw response and draw their conclusions accordingly - the blockchain has been mapped into RDF (Apache Jena + Fuseki) and is available for the resolution of SPARQL queries.

I have a blocknotify script in Python that updates the RDF graph with freshly-minted blocks+tx as they occur. Initially, I ran it in “catchup” mode, dumped the blockchain as ntriples and read it into Jena's TDB using the command-line utility.

Fuseki has happily been hosting the Slimcoin RDF blockchain for a week or so and I've been firing assorted SPARQL queries at it --- it's doing okay thus far.

Of course, the *real* firework display is yet to begin. Now that we have an RDF model of the blockchain, inscriptions can be signature hashes of RDF graphs. This means that you will be able to inscribe the signature of an arbitrary RDF graph and the metadata contained in the graph can be retrieved and used to decorate/accompany the inscription with appropriate metadata content such as the title, author, date, price, thumbnail, snippet, contract id, actually *anything* that you can express in RDF, which is pretty much anything at all.

Cheers

Graham

Awesome work @gjhiggins, looks nice.
I like logo too, with or without flames, but I thought flames would be a nice add-on Wink. Yeah without flames logo can be only for logo, and this with flames for widescreen images.

I add one more server for Slimcoin Client Wallet AIO v.0.5

Great job with the logo.Today i saw that someone (probably) bought a nice stash on novaexchange, over 50k, lucky one  Grin, there's a big 97k SLM sell order at 600 sats (0.74BTC)

Nice! Looks really interesting.

Does ACME also allow to follow the balance of an address? I have tried that with the FugueCoin explorer on minkiz.co, but if I click on an address there I get an "Internal Server Error".

I remember you said that was the most difficult feature for a block explorer. But if the whole blockchain is represented in RDF, would that mean a SPARQL query would make it possible?

I'm writing currently a very simple Python script to track transactions and addresses - my main interest was to track the balance of the burn address, but I have extended it and now it's something like a command line block explorer Wink (Not ready for production, though).

Whew. Isnt't that what Tauchain wanted to achieve - in short, we're now a competitor for Ethereum? Grin

So I invite a few of my friends to like Slimcoin fb page, but it's to decide with community - if we are at stage that I can post it on altcoins and cryptocurrency groups that I belong to? I'm in quite a few groups that contain a several thousands of members. What do you think community? Is our project mature enough?

Btw. my new wallpaper on phone Grin thx.
