Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) CryptoVoter LAUNCH

First Coin to Decentralize Development thru
CryptoVoter’s Shareholder-style Blockchain Voting

- as featured in techcrunch -



BTCS Voting Website | CryptoVoter Website | BTC Voting Website



Latest Clients (downloads and source-codes below):
Wallet Client: Bitcoin-sCrypt v.1.4.0
Voting Client: CryptoVoter-BTCS v.1.10.1










Bitcoin-sCrypt - CryptoVoter

After over a year and a half of development by self-funding (and refusing to prefund vaporware with an ICO or premine) the CryptoVoter development team has developed an open-source shareholder-style blockchain voting client and Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) will be first cryptocoin to use CryptoVoter’s blockchain voting client to decentralize crypto development.

CryptoVoter’s new and unique blockchain voting system was recently featured in techcrunch and CryptoCoinNews.

The community will guide development on future cryptocoin features.  Pulling features instead of pushing them.   This is the future of cryptocoin development.  Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) will lead the way.

The open-source voting client has been developed and alpha-tested.

No vaporware.  No ICO’s.  No pre-mines.   Real software.  Real voting.  Real decentralization.

Shareholder-style blockchain voting is here.  Decentralized cryptocoin governance is now.

Welcome to Altcoins 2.0.



Bitcoin-sCrypt – Decentralized Development


While the original Bitcoin (BTC) provides decentralized transaction exchange and confirmation, development follows a centralized top-down model.  Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) development is committed to decentralizing development by having users vote on development issues with vote weight based on coin ownership percentages, just like shareholder voting in a corporation.   What’s more, Bitcoin-sCrypt users can propose items to be voted on so Bitcoin-sCrypt development is truly community-driven.

Future votes include whether to change the mining algo to become more asic resistant, whether to switch to a hybrid or a pure Proof-of-Stake system; whether to adopt anonymity features; whether to increase the blocksize; and whether to adopt new cryptocoin features and functionality, as proposed by the coin-holders themselves.


How Voting Works:

Users can cast votes manually, or use the CryptoVoter voting client to automatically cast votes, by creating vanity Bitcoin voting addresses in the user’s own wallet to allow them to send coins from one address in their wallet to another address in the same wallet by a designated blockheight deadline to publicly register votes.  Voters never give up control of their private keys before, during or after votes.  At the designated voting blockheight deadline (which is announced 48-72 hours before the estimated voting deadline), all non-zero balances of matching vanity Bitcoin voting addresses are tallied to count votes and can be independently counted by anyone using a blockchain explorer.  

An infographic explaining how it works can be found here.




How to Vote:

To automatically cast a vote, download the CryptoVoter-BTCS voting client and launch the client to get the latest voting question and answer choices.  You can also view past vote results and future voting questions in the client.

To manually cast a vote, visit http://btcs-voter.com to get the latest voting question and manual voting instructions.  You can also view past vote results and future voting questions on the website.




Specifications:


  • Release date: September 8, 2013 [No premine]
  • Mining Algo:  Scrypt POW
  • Block reward: 25 coins per block  (prior to halving:  50 coins per block)
  • Block generation: 2 minutes
  • Difficulty Retargets using nTargetTimespan = 60 * 60; nTargetSpacing=2*60; nInterval = nTargetTimespan/nTargetSpacing
  • Estimated 21 Million Max Coins
  • Development Driven by Shareholder-Style Blockchain Voting (CryptoVoter)

This is a very old coin, I don't think there was any premined and Smokeasy took over the development without any incentives. I'm glad he didn't give up, btw I still have all my coins  Wink

As mentioned in the OP, we refused to do any prefunding of vaporware with an ICO or premine.  As a result it took longer to develop but we finished with an actual working product.  Now ready for the next stage.

I think doing an ICO or premine would have tarnished.  Interested to see how the altcoin scene reacts.

I think you guys should try to get on more exchanges than just C-Cex.

Actually, we are working on getting on a few of the major exchanges before the big vote.

well done! I really like this one and have been mining it a while back ago. Now, I don't have any coins... I guess I'll start to mine some more.

Can still be mined by GPU's too.

As of now it can, but I suspect that will change once word spreads its the first cryptovoter vote coin.  Then I think the scrypt asics will start jumping on board.

I wouldn't call it a relaunch.  The coin isn't relaunching.  Relaunch implies that the blockchain is going to be reset, which as far as I know, that isn't happening.  Re-ANN, Update, or just ANN, I think would be a better terms for the title.  My 2 cents.
