Dear Slothcoin community,

Since block 300K Slothcoin v1.3.1b3 has been moving forward quite steady, like a Sloth does. Unfortunately the permanent nodes disappeared at some point. Also there did not seem to be peers that had TCP port 5107 open and it looked like the Slothcoin network was about to go down. That after some attacks with older Slothcoin versions that tried to enforce a blockchain split.The past few months have been a rough ride for the little Sloth that could. And together with some other Slothies (Like Star Trek fans are: Trekkies.) we managed to pull it several times out off high diff. Plus making sure version 1.3.1.b3 stayed the longest chain.

Because of the possible p2p network down for good, therefore ending Slothcoin, until it would get restarted again (a possible scenario), the idea came to create a blockchain swap for Slothcoin. All with the idea to safe Slothcoin, by moving it to Bitshares for example. With a swap of 1000:1. Bitshares has its own decentralized exchange where Slothcoin would be traded against all the other cryptos there. Also it would have its own mobile (bitshares) multi-wallet and point of sales. This looked like a possible solution for Slothcoin to be able to move on and even get more value plus better and broader use.

A recent reply by @digit about that swap idea put a different light on it. Now from my point of view blockchain technologies like Bitshares, Steem, and soon to be EOS, are far superior to any other. And if Slothcoin could not make it on its own, it could be moved to a better system. And it would get its own use in a multiwallet with a point of sales to support it. That was the idea, the suggestion.

Thanks to the reply I have become aware of how I actually have moved on. Away from Bitcoin like cryptos, energy burning POW mining and centralized exchanges. Since I became active at Steem, traded at Bitshares and started to see the huge potential that EOS is going to bring, that is what I see as the crypto future.

The reason that I put a lot of time, effort and energy in keeping Slothcoin going was because I had a click with it, like a few others I know also do. And I wanted it to go on, just like some other Slothie fans.

But now things were put in perspective for me, that was the final push I needed. The community I moved forward to into the crypto future is at Steem, Bitshares and is soon to be extended to EOS.

That is where I am going to put my time, effort and energy in. Also because the community at Steem is very supportive, in so many ways. (And I get payed quite well for posting, that is a nice bonus...)

Slothcoin future?
It was, is and will be in the hands of the Slothies, the Slothcoin community. Version 1.3.1b3 set the POW block mining rewards in a way that it could be mined until 2021. If I remember the math correctly. Rewards of 4321 SLOTH can be given until block 1229584 and the current block count is not even at 600K right now. So, still a lot of SLOTH to get. Roughly calculated that means there is still about 3 billion SLOTH to mine.

If Slothcoin moves on depends on peers having TCP port 5107 open or even better two or more permanent nodes available. But even if it comes to a temporary halt, it can always be restarted, brought back to life from a long sleep. (That accounts for any coin that apparantly has stopped over time.)

As long as possible I will keep the website home of Slothcoin, slick dot cf, going. The sourcecode is still at Github and can always be forked. Some Slothies and I, active at Steem, will do our best to keep an eye out for the little cute one. And will try to help it get out off high diff, if possible.

But I will stop with taking any kind of innitiative here or elsewhere anymore, concerning Slothcoin. Time for some new fresh innitiatives from others. For me Slothcoin was, is and will be a community effort.

Thanks for all the support and all the best to you and those dear to you.

With kind regards,

Oaldamster

imho slothcoin should NEVER become a token or coinswap ever unless you are trying to destroy it completely Sad

This is just your opinion, it does not necessarily had to be true.... also I think it could be complete the opposite

you may not be aware of this but on Cryptopia they have a policy that coins that is hard fork or has coinswap gets delisted, and there are NO bitshares/steem tokens or clonecoins on Cryptopia or Tradesatoshi, so even if someone were to pay to relist it, highly unlike that sloth as a bts or a steem token or clones of them would be able to added there.  So lets not lose the only markets on what has a been a good place for slothcoin, by making a it a coinswap to a token that will never see the light of day on any exchange.

Cryptopia, tradesatoshi?Huh Well as far as I know there is almost not movement at all in any of this markets if you look in the slothcoin part... Are you joking??? I am one of the old supporters of Slothcoin and also was helping oldambtster a bit with all his plan to change the Slothie to another blockchain.

and sloth keep it strengths of being decentralized and a PoW coin with its own blockchain means even if mining stops, it can still be resumed by anyone later with just a cpu or gpu.  
This is not possible if it becomes a token on a centralized distributed network like BTS or STEEM or staking only coin. also you might say hey bts has openledger decentralized exchange, but it is dead platform, hardly anyone uses them, and its too complicated for newbies, so thats no good for sloth.

I can see you do not like Steem or BTS... well, like for your first sentence, it is just your opinion that, as far as I know, is based on completely wrong points like the centralized network and Openledger been a dead market... it moves much more than Cryptopia... and is better know also.

if you really need a reason to create a token, then make it a giveaway for slothcoin holders with its own name (slothies,slothshares ?). but leave the slothcoin we have alone and allow others to be able discover it and learn mining with it now and years from now.

And here you are been very disrespectful with the person who had take care of the Slothcoin since a long time... "but leave the slothcoin we have alone"? really? The "legendary" symbol you have by your name does not give any right to say thing like that without even consider or the effort and work oldambtster had done all this time for SlothCoin. As far as I can see you wrote just 3 times in this thread, and the 3rd one was this one... and not for help and be constructive but for complain about coins and markets that you do not like and to disregard the time and work of other people... Sadly english is not my mother language and I really can not say everything I am thinking now but I think you can get the idea with my lines... You can express your opinion but do not try to be a "boss" here please

And if there is a market full of shitty and clone coins is Cryptopia!!! They start with the Kim Dot Coin and the change it to Dot after when they made the market... I know about Cryptopia since the beginning and I am sorry to say but has always be a dead sea... with a lot of dead fishes inside... Just to be clear here!

Why is nobody trying to get the SLOTH on other exchanges, for instance bittrex.
Or if it is possible a chinese exchange like yobtc.com.
I see a little growing of more interest in the SLOTH.

Thanks for your support here @jmsr1978 and your help to keep Slothcoin going.
We will still pull it out off high diff and so on, if and when needed.

Thanks man, I do appreciate it!

There is more interest in Slothcoin indeed.
We, @jmsr1978 and I, have been promoting it quite a bit the past few months.

Maybe somebody will pick this up and help Slothcoin get to other exchanges.

it will be nice to make some steps to raise value of this coin, maybe develop masternode system, like ~12 500 000 [576 (blocks/day) x 4321 (block reward) x 5 (days mining)] sloth for 1 masternode.
So everybody can hop in, this will help the price and attention.

any news dev
i think it also a good idea to have masternode with percentage or same in rewards in pow
instead of buying rigs to mine some will just buy sloth and make masternode

power on my computer went out. I'm trying to sync, it says out of sync last block was 598194 on fri. it's been stuck at that number for a couple hours. could someone tell me what the current top block is, at least I'll know how far behind I am and maybe list some nodes. I'm connected to 7 peers right now. thanks

Stumbled across Sloth a few days ago. Wallet is syncing at speed of sloth, 2 peers currently.  I will consider running a permanent node If i ever manage to get the whole block chain down.

I uploaded a new bootstrap.dat for SLOTH, might be useful for some if the network is too slow, mining seems to have increased and chain is moving, as another 20 blocks had flown past by the time i had finished uploading this.  Cheesy

and so lite, only 224MB unpacked for 3 years of Slothchain history
