Hello guys,

The new wallet has the new design?

hopefully new wallet out by end of week. all the images and that are ready its just when the devs have time. they all doing this for free atm, granted they will have alot of coins and want the value to increase but it will all take time. rebrand going well with a quite a few people working on it with website, wallet, slack, trello etc. plus devs working in the background on features like the bip38 in wallet which was added the other day. Lots going on in the background.

How many full time core devs does pivX have? I mean with the possibility to create a 10% development fund for projects let's bring on more devs. Increase projects taking place. This increases desirability increasing pivx value and possibility to afford more developers taking on more projects right? we can spiral pivx upwards to a more suitable place in cmc. Would be great to add full time devs that are loyal to dnet .

I hope the new twist on anon that is being formulated will be closed source for a time to enable a good first mover advantage like dark dash scam coin did else it will just be patched into every other coin.

Also this thread has pretty much stalled since slack became the main discussion medium which is not good. This forum still sees a lot of new blood scanning the ann section for good projects. I think it is important to keep it as muc as possible on page 1 before they get side tracked into inferior projects with flash graphic on the op.

there is a development fund with the voting system. the list of proposals can be found http://178.254.23.111/~pub/DN/DN_masternode_payments_stats.html 5% of all coins generated is going to these. I think the system is being tweaked tho and multi-sig being incorporated into it. So if a dev does complete the task they will receive the funds for that task.

I get this and that is a great system although I thought it was 10% but even if it is just 5% that's still good.

I think for simple tasks and updates it is great however I think for a complex huge ground breaking updates it must remain closed source at the begining else you will just see it patched into every other coin that it can be patched into. Also the devs creating it should be core pivX devs with interest in seeing pivX excel specifically.

One of the main issues with zcash is simply that every other coin now just patches their work into their own projects diluting the value over and over. I know they have other trust issues too.

you are correct it was 10% i edited it. Not much has been released on what it actually is apart from a modified zerocoin code to create full time anonyminity. They are removing dark send first before it is implemented in the wallet assume to clear up some of the code making sure there no bugs by doing that.

Official Website Update

We have been trying to determine what the best way to create a professional looking website is. We have a web-dev but the web-design part is more tricky and we haven't had anyone volunteering for designing the new website. So we have asked for a quote from Rhubarb Media (who created the PIVX logo) and here is their proposal and quote. They are willing to receive 500 PIVX as part of the payment at $1 a piece! Also, we could fund most if not all of it via masternode proposals budget (once proposal is submitted and vote passes) and maybe some donations via the community if needed. But yeah, we are always looking for options so if anyone has a much better proposal or is able to work with our web-dev to design a really nice website, please feel free to voice out here or on our slack channel as we are open to all ideas.

https://www.docdroid.net/4vmE0nP/pivx-website-proposal.pdf.html

P.S. Current masternode proposal system has a bug so once that is resolved, we'll get the proposal going to fund this and other projects.

OK, the New Wallet is almost ready, but I wanted to run a few more tests after we merge it to the public repo, and also explain the process you will need to take to make this a seem less update...

You will need to rename only 2 items 'BEFORE' you start the new wallet for the first time, or this will be more complicated.

First thing is to shut your wallet down gracefully as everyone always should..

1.) First Item to rename will be your working folder, presently, it is called '.darknet' and is a hidden directory. this directory needs to be renamed to '.pivx' .

2.) Second item you need to rename is your existing 'darknet.conf' file which is located inside the previously renamed directory. Rename this file 'pivx.conf' .

then restart your NEW wallet and everything will be good.

If you do not follow these simple instructions, some panic may sit in, when you realize that the wallet shows 'Zero' coins, in which case, you will need to shut down your wallet again, and move your wallet.dat and darknet.conf file to the newly created directory. and then rename it to pivx.conf.

I am hoping that all my tests go well, and we will be pushing some new binaries sometime today. They will be v2.1.4.0, Yes I saw some people wanted a larger update with the versioning, but that would require everyone to restart all their masternodes (as is required for all protocol bumps), and there is no need this time around.. I will suggest that everyone updates their masternodes as well following the same instructions as above. only do a few at a time, and as long as the masternode is back up and running within 50 minutes you will retain you place in the que.

I will post again when I have the new binaries up on github, and will update the wallet links at that time.. remember.. v2.1.4.0 is the version you want.. Smiley

edit; you will also need to set the themes under option to default the first time on the new wallet, then restart the wallet and you will be good.

Source is up for the self builders among you, Binaries are cooking now as I head to bed.  I will be uploading the new Binaries in the morning.. Smiley

Hmm. I don't think there was even a single week since this coin launched where there were no updates.
Heck, I don't think there has even been a single week in the last 3-6 months without an update from myself?
Anyways, if there is an update worth sharing and if not yet posted, you'll definitely see an update from me. Wink

PIVX REBRANDED WALLET UPDATE

As s3v3nh4cks mentioned above, the first ever PIVX rebranded v.2.1.4.0 wallet has been released.
Compiled wallet binaries for various OS should be put up within the next 24 hours. Repo link below.

https://github.com/PIVX-Project/PIVX/releases/tag/v2.1.4.0

Although it's not mandatory, it has added bug fixes so it is highly recommended.
Change log can be seen from the commit history via the gitbub link below.
https://github.com/PIVX-Project/PIVX/compare/v2.1.3.4...master

IMPORTANT WALLET UPGRADE STEPS

If you have an existing wallet, you MUST rename the following 2 items 'BEFORE' you start the new wallet as the folder/file naming has changed.

1. Shut down the wallet gracefully either via CLI or via wallet GUI.
2. For linux users, hidden directory ".darknet" needs to be renamed to ".pivx".
3. For Windows users, similar will need to be done to your wallet.dat directory. (usually located in %APPDATA%)
4. For everyone, "darknet.conf" needs to be renamed to "pivx.conf".
5. Replace the wallet binaries with the updated v2.1.4.0 binaries.
6. Start the wallet!

For Windows users:
I personally recommend Windows wallet users to specify the wallet.dat directory via a shortcut method.
Basically create a shortcut the qt executable and append the -datadir= and specify a folder you created.

e.g. C:\Coins\PIVX\pivx-qt.exe -datadir=C:\Coins\PIVX\blockchain

Then the wallet and chain/dat/conf files will all be within a single folder instead of it going to %APPDATA%.
This trick works for pretty much every coin under the sun btw. (bitcoin, litecoin, whatever coin etc etc)
P.S. If you have an existing wallet.dat & conf files, you'll need to move them to the new -datadir folder.

OK, So we have a new issue to deal with...

I spoke to Bittrex today, to let them know we are ready to rebrand with them.. and since I spoke to Richie a few months ago in regards to this, should be an easy transition, but Now they want 1.5 btc to do the rebrand. I have spoken to Bill as well, and they don't seem to care that it was never mentioned when I spoke to Richie earlier.

So as it stands, we are in limbo, as I am not paying 1.5 BTC for a few database entries and a logo change. This is ridiculous.

Feel free to contact Richie and Bill on Slack in the Bittrex channel.

quick update, upgraded all deamons to latest binaries (from git source, I built em by hand) zero problems so far

thanks to main dev/community .. really think of this, many dropping off or will be of  the alt coin race.. dont believe you are so 0 sell as per usual no dump from

running master nodes is sooo much more cost efficient then a GPU farm...

very best!

new upcoming awesome coin

Okay everyone, I think we really need to go crazy and try to get PIVX added to Poloniex.
Now to do that, there is a lot that needs to be done. But it is very much possible.
Some can be done by the community. Some needs to be done by the devs. It's a team effort!

Some examples:
1. Coin Request Form template. See below for the details on how it can be filled. You can change the last 2 segments.
2. New website. This is a KEY component as a re-designed website is needed before Polo will add PIVX apparently.
3. White Papers. We are looking into writing a technical white paper on unique features of PIVX. (e.g. seesaw algorithm)
4. Anything else. PIVX has a team. But everyone here is team PIVX also. If we all do a little, we can make a BIG impact.

Poloniex Reuest Form URL: https://poloniex.com/coinRequest

FYI

I run both masternode controller wallet and a separate staking-only wallet instance on Windows.
I've upgraded both my Windows wallets to PIVX v2.1.4.0 wallet and have zero problems so far.

To be fair, updates have been pretty good, especially lately. I think this project has really built a strong foundation.

That's messed up. Pretty unreasonable for a small job like renaming a coin.
