Hey guys,

nice volume on bittrex today.

Any comments or updates murderouskirk?

Good movement indeed! The trader in me is feeling pretty confident.

✓ Good distribution
✓ Extremely low supply
✓ Low inflation
✓ Good scarcity, few sellers
✓ Value much lower than similarly sized coins
✓ Room for an update release
✓ Traders testing new floors



How is everything going with the coin dev?

From experience I've learned it's best not to say too much till things are launch ready, however I will say this:

• Progress is being made towards a core update.
• I have also been meeting with another core dev in the hopes that I can get him involved.
• Successfully doing so would make faster progress, higher quality code, and new ideas more attainable.

Tip: For the most stable Swing experience, install on Ubuntu 14.04 x64.

Fantastic thank you! I'll be sure to update the ANN with a link to your site, and remove the dead pools.

My wallet got stuck... The download of blocks stopped at block 128151 --- 33 days out of sync.
The wallet software writes, that it is catching up... but nothing happens...  there are 8 active connections.
Did anybody have something similar?

Delete all of the AppData, except wallet.dat wallet and run wallet again.
He should re-download all the blocks.

Hi guys,
while checking staking this morning, I realized I forked (probably at block 218677).
It is quite strange, since I have 10 connections all time...
Any ideas what/why happened?

Maybe you wanna check your clients with explorers so you don't fork also...
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/swing/
http://cryptobe.com/chain/Swing

Anyway: I deleted everything in data dir except wallet and .conf file, redownloaded blockchain and I'm back on right blockchain

I check , to me, all right, but concerns me more, that already month passed from last news from dev

A update would be nice. Or at least a update on the explorer situation.

Cryptobe BE is working.
But, chain is nicer. Like many coins,
It may be up to the community for someone to step up, take donations and pay the fee.
Several of us did that in Cap, HBN and Con.

I don't have a problem kicking in some BTC to help pay for it but a update from the dev first is needed to see if this coin is still a go

Too many coins are going belly up. Don't want to just throw it away to a lost cause. Hope this program is still a go.

The mechanics behind the coin are good

Yeah, coin's great, staking superbly, just DEV is maybe too quiet :-)

What's up guys. Hope you're all doing well! I decided to make a video update instead of a big text one.

It's about 13 minutes and I talk about

  • Block Explorers
  • Room For improvement
  • Options For Improvement
  • Potential Reward Schema / Platform Changes
  • My Presence as Lead Dev
  • A Call For Devs And Discussion

Nice update DEV, thanks!

Didn’t know about that rounding bug, that was probably the reason I forked couple of days ago, one mystery solved then :-)
As for reward system: I think Swing is quite mature coin now and we can easily drop POW altogether.

Benefits of that:
  • rounding bug: solved :-)
  • lower inflation => price rise
  • miners not dumping => price rise

Interesting idea, I actually hadn't considered dropping POW rewards altogether. I'm curious what other people think.

Glad to see you back around murderouskirk, and great vid Wink

I'm not fussed about droping POW either to be honest, it could help to raise prices, it seems there are few pools being used anyway, but that's just my opinion.

Wallet runs great etc, one of the only other things i could say that could help price would be an actual usage other than trading, but as i'm sure you know, it's very

hard to find.

And with just over a million coins produced so far it still seems fairly cheap to me, so i will continue stocking up for now Cheesy

Thanks!

Yeah I'm not too keen on killing POW just yet either. He did state some good upsides, but there are also downsides to that.

Downsides to removing POW include:
-Decreased blockchain strength
-Less opportunity for miners to get their initial Swing with their rigs
-Fewer pools advertising SWING as a mining option
-No potential swing caused by miners.

I would however be interested in adjusting the miner rewards, maybe favoring POS rewards much more than current rates. Possibly even a significant reduction in POW rewards over POS.

Im interested to hear what you guys think of longer cycles too. Like maybe have POW or POS rewards gradually increase from 0.00 to 9.99 over the course of 1month+, rather than dropping every 1,000 blocks.

I'm also curious how say, increasing rewards linearly over 10 days before dropping from 9.99 to 0.00, would compare to say 30 days. Would one schema produce more coin than the other by the end of the 30 days? etc..

I think POW is important at the beginning for fair distribution, later I'm not so sure. Anybody who wanted to mine could during those 9 months. Who wants to buy now can (and it is pretty cheap too  Smiley

As for blockchain strength: is POW really more secure or is it other way around? https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Proof_of_Stake
Do we know some examples where POS coins security was compromised?

Yes,  miners can spread the word and make coin more popular but at they sell right after they mine they just push price lower.

You make good points here. I want to address the following though.

To me, it's less about security and more about core stability. It's not that one is better, it's more that I feel BOTH is better than one. If something goes wrong with POS, POW can be used as a tool to keep the chain moving, or kickstart a frozen chain even. If one fails, the other is there to keep the chain moving till the issue resolves itself, or gets patched.

That being said, it should be possible to disable mining and end POW if we decide that's best for the coin, or set POW rewards low to nothing. (Although, there are probably concerns about an active POW with no competition.)

Also, if we were to disable POW, how would we setup POS?

hmm, I didn't think about POS so far....
As for POW as chain mover if something goes wrong: It is might be handy, that's true.
So how about make POW low and fixed, like 0.1 Swing?  That would make things as simple as possible + inflation due to POW would be superlow.
And POS... I don't know yet :-)
