News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Argentum




Version 3.11.2


http://www.argentum.io



Features:
Argentum uses two cryptographic algorithms; Scrypt and SHA256D with AUXPOW support (Merged Mining)
- Block size 10mb
- 3 Argentums per block

Production:
Blocks are discovered every 45 seconds and transactions are fully confirmed every 4.5 minutes. 64 Million total Argentums will be mined. Once this limit is reached, it is increased by 1.1% annually, the rate of human population growth.

Security:
Mined blocks mature after 30 confirms (100 at block 2,422,000): Argentum is a fast currency but it does not compromise the safety of the blockchain in the process.

Version 3.11.2
- Update the code base to Bitcoin version 11.2 (from Myriadcoin 11.3)
- Hard fork for coinbase maturity at Block 2,422,000. New coinbase maturity will be 100 confirmations.
- Up to date Gitian build scripts and setup guide
- BIP65 Soft Fork when ~>78% of nodes have upgraded
- Minimum protocol version is 1050000

Version 2.4.4
- Minimum transaction fee and minimum relay transaction fee from 0.00500000 to 0.00050000
- Bring the dust limit in line with Bitcoin and most cryptocurrencies. With a relay transaction fee of 0.00050000 the dust limit should be 0.00027300; anything less than that and the transaction will be rejected.
- Change the dust soft limit to 0.00050000. Any amount of ARG less than 0.00050000 will incur an additional fee of 0.00050000.

Version 2.4.3
- Add checkpoint block
- Change minimum peer version to 2.4.1

Version 2.4.2
- Change protocol version to 1050000

Version 2.4.1] Very important update
- Disconnect obsolete versions

Version 2.4.0 (September 18, 2016) Fork at block 2,032,000
- Changes max sequential blocks found per algorithm from 3 to 6

Argentum was created mid 2013 with the following criteria:

Quote
Argentum is fast, unique, and secure. We have learned from many of the past crypto-currencies and created one that can rival any. Argentum brings innovation and experimentation by combining interesting aspects of other crypto-currencies and adding unique features.

Argentum is designed to gain value over time and to be a rare commodity that is easily and quickly transferable. The innovation doesn't end there, Argentum is the first crypto-currency to increase transaction processing capabilities over those of bitcoin. With the Bank of Argentum, the ARG/DGC exchange, and other commodity related services on the way, there is a bright future for this coin.

Argentum is secure, rare, and unique. The combination of all its characteristics provide a:
1. Longterm stable investment
2. Growth potential based on services
3. Diversification into less risky crypto-currency
4. Secure quasi-instantaneous transaction processing
Taken from the most active ARG BitcoinTalk threads here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=259436.msg2767706#msg2767706 & https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=231524.0.


The original info is mostly defunct on those threads, hence this new ANN
Also in the very earliest original launch thread from the original developer AlphaC, there would seem to have been some kind of pre-mine which was used to pay for services rendered to Baritus. So for clarity I will state that there was a historical pre-mine at the beginning of what seems to have been around 200,000 ARG.

This pre-mine now will no longer matter as there would seem to be in the regions of over 3.5 million ARG locked in accounts that may be lost to the original holders.

We will move on from the past in a New Beginning for Argentum, eventually cutting ties with the original incarnation.


Current short term goals:

-More pools, lots of pools. Hashrate is good, but we need wider distribution.

-Bitsquare.io (done)

-Electrum Client & Server (Finished)

-Coinomi Mobile wallet (awaiting merge at Coinomi's repo)

Mid to long term:

-Poloniex

-Shapeshift.io

-Bittrex

Long term:

-Payment processor

Stupid question from new starter. The DB_CONFIG file must be as text file with config extension, or just raw file. And next stupid question - in a roaming directory or just where I downloaded qt wallet? Sorry and thank you

If I might suggest, more active exchange wouldn't hurt. Like Yobit.net for example. To bring more interest to coin - Just my thoughts Wink
Or its better done after wallet update?

A good suggestion indeed, but I think we should at least get the wallet updated first, also have to get the history and timeline of ARG sorted out from all the BCT threads and the Forum posts, get an over all picture of our history so that we can present any new exchanges with facts and not hearsay,

That way we can go on with confidence and transparency.

I can't sinc, any new nodes or an advice?

Known Wallet Problem:
The wallet still suffers from a DB error for now, but if you create a file called DB_CONFIG (No Extension) in the coin wallet directory (for Windows users that's your 'appdata/roaming/arg' folder within your profile) with the following contents it will sync without problems.
Code:
set_lk_max_locks 537000
set_lk_max_objects 537000
You may have to delete the already downloaded block-chain just to be on the safe side.

Nodes:
These are the current active nodes from the clients I have up and running as of 2nd of April 2016.

Code:
addnode=87.98.185.244
addnode=54.154.138.95
addnode=47.72.21.40
addnode=86.174.4.251

Yes I had initially a hell of a time getting everything synced.
And as Saracenis said, I also had to restart the wallet a few times on one or two locations.

Current nodes listed on the Block Explorer site are :

addnode=112.10.107.106
addnode=144.76.71.141
addnode=162.251.172.203
addnode=54.154.138.95
addnode=74.111.105.96
addnode=80.2.75.167
addnode=82.29.4.122
addnode=86.174.4.251
addnode=86.182.114.131
addnode=88.206.187.247

Try those/

This is also one of the reasons I wish to get the wallet updated,

Okay, not a BIG exchange and fairly new, but at least there's somewhere for now,
Actually I like CoinExchange.io ' s simplicity, and no bots for now :-)

Its also listed on http://payservices.com.

I might put a market request in at Yobit as someone previously suggested, but I would like to get a more up to date wallet sorted first.

Difficulty
Re-targets every 250 blocks: 250 blocks until re-target insures accurate difficulty adjustments while almost eliminating the risk of difficulty stranding.

Is this some kind of joke ? lol

Clearly you know that anyone can solo mine or pool mine with major hashrate for those 250-500 blocks and make the difficulty stick for pretty much forever for the normal everyday miners.

This difficulty adjustment is so 2013 ancient, back then network hashrates weren't strong enough to even realize this major flaw in network growth & hopping hence the continuous difficulty adjustment upgrades, e.g KGW, DGW, DGW2, DGW3, DigiShield, etc.

Well yes it is so 2013 right enough, that's why we need a wallet upgrade!

The wallet has not been updated since 2014, and one of the things we want to get done is a KGW type Continuous Difficulty Adjustment.

Did i mention the coin had died?

It was actively traded until Cryptsy threw a cog and went into oblivion.

The reason we are still using this archaic wallet is so that the coin does not die altogether, It would be almost impossible to revive if all mining were to stop.
As it was it took a bit to get going again considering the block-chain had not moved in over 45 days.
