Thank you for this package, this was much needed. When we switched to multi-algo I was one of those that wanted to hook my old gaming pc up for mining and I have been trying to find the mining software that work for my pc in one bundle.

No problem  Grin do you have an AMD Graphics card or nvidia?

Old Nvidia GeForce 570

Now we just have to figure out what is the most profitable algo.

you see its possible the success of a  digital country currency , look what is happening to dubaicoin, it has multiply by 10 recently

http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/dubaicoin/

You can contact the dubai team and have conversation and help each other with ideas,  sharing ideas and learning from one another will help both...just talk, you have nothing to lose. If it works what they are doing in Dubai why is not going to work in Iceland?

price alone isn't adequate to measure success of Auroracoin. The aim is adoption, not ripoff.

Auroracoin has multiplied much more than 10 times in the past. Did that mean success? No, more like "temporary failure".

Value should be created, not taken from others.

And that's what the current team is out to do: creating value by establishing Auroracoin as a money used in Iceland.

There is a lot of talk about adoption, yet what I miss, is any talk regarding technological development...

"The last block update occurred 35 minutes ago". <-- this is just from a random transaction I did today, and still pending whilst writing this.
Quite likely, no merchant or customer is fond of waiting for more than half an hour, when buying let's say for instance a pack of bubble gum of whatever other goods with their AUR's...

If adoption is being targeted before resolving and countering technological issues as above, I highly doubt any true success potential irl...

Well, talking about technical development doesn't resolve anything. That's why we are actually working on technical improvements and provide those when they are finished. We do however discuss our development with our community, you can join those conversations on our official forum: http://auroraspjall.is/viewforum.php?f=8&sid=011a91d9b9883e5a531688233a061ac2

We like to find a good balance between adoption, usability and technology. We also stated before that we are not here to prove we are awesome technical innovators, there are hundreds of other coins that pursue that already.

The switch to multi-algo already improved our block times massively. We are now working on merchant solutions that will provide the tools to accept Auroracoin extremely easy and with 0 confirmation protocol those will be instant.

The "35min" block you are referring to took 17 minutes and 3 seconds btw Wink While most blocks (over 98%) are spot on within the 61 sec window Smiley

Well, the only block that took more than a couple of minutes around the time of Georges post was: [252698]



That one took 17:03 minutes

bittrex often has very slow updates of the blockchain. I've seen hours there while block were rolling in normally on the chain.

I had some luck finding blocks with my Nidia 970 gtx on the groestl algo mining at around 30 MH.

Did anyone try the AMD package yet? I really want to know if they work.

Hi guys, way to hang in there with this project.  It's been around a long time and things are looking really professional.

A few questions...

Why rebrand AUR at this point instead of starting fresh with a new coin?

Is the goal of this project for people in Iceland to use AUR when paying each other?

Why would someone use AUR instead of BTC?

How many merchants accept AUR currently?

How is this project funded?

Is there an AUR richlist?

Should aurstats.com be up?

It looks like there are 9 people listed as being on the Auroracoin team.

What are their roles in the project?

Do any of them receive compensation?

Hi guys, way to hang in there with this project.  It's been around a long time and things are looking really professional.

A few questions...

Why rebrand AUR at this point instead of starting fresh with a new coin?

We are not rebranding AUR, it's still the same coin. Starting a fresh coin in Iceland will never get the same distribution within Iceland. 10% of the population is a good starting point.

Is the goal of this project for people in Iceland to use AUR when paying each other?
Yes.

Why would someone use AUR instead of BTC?
We love BTC but the problem in Iceland are currency controls that prohibit people form buying BTC, therefore Auroracoin was distributed to the people of Iceland.


How many merchants accept AUR currently?
Currently there are no merchants that accept AUR. But this is about to change. The development team is producing merchant solutions, which will be linked to the isx.is exchange which can convert AUR back to ISK for merchants.

How is this project funded?
The project is funded from our own pockets.

Is there an AUR richlist?
Here is the Aur richlist https://bitinfocharts.com/top-100-richest-auroracoin-addresses.html

Should aurstats.com be up?
I didn't know it was down.

It looks like there are 9 people listed as being on the Auroracoin team.
Yes, there are 9 in the official development team. Then there are other Icelanders part of the Auroracoin foundation


What are their roles in the project?

Pétur Árnason (Skarfur) - Chairman of the Auraráð foundation (IS)

Hermann  Finnbjörnsson (apcoins) - Boardmember of the Auraráð foundation (IS)

Hlynur Þór Björnsson (dinobotta) - Boardmember of the Auraráð foundation (IS)

Craig Dellandrea (bimmerhead) - Community development (CA)

Martin Jansen (LTEX) - Marketing & PR (NL)
 
Jess Foddrill (ny2cafuse) - Developer (US)

Myckel Habets (biomike) - Developer (NL)

Tom Hendriks (thsminer) - Developer (NL)

Yan Crevier (soltantgris) - Social Media (CA)


Do any of them receive compensation?
No, none of us gets any compensation we all have 9-5 jobs and do our best to develop and promote Auroracoin in our spare time.

It's worth mentioning that Peter seems to think it's a rebranding:

http://cointelegraph.com/news/auroracoin-makes-a-comeback-in-iceland-the-country-mired-in-financial-scandals

Anyway, couldn't the same distribution method that was employed with Auroracoin be employed with a fresh coin?


Is the goal of this project for people in Iceland to use AUR when paying each other?
Yes.

Does Bitcoin's failure to penetrate the remittance market in any country make you think that Auroracoin would fail to do the same in Iceland?


We love BTC but the problem in Iceland are currency controls that prohibit people form buying BTC, therefore Auroracoin was distributed to the people of Iceland.

It is legal to exchange the krona for AUR but illegal to exchange it for BTC?



Do you know who controls the address containing ~40% of the AUR?

I don't think there's much of an Icelandic remittance market.

There is no krona<=>bitcoin exchange

The 1 million AUR is the Auroracoin foundation. The next two biggest holders are thought to be Cryptsy and that exchange that went bust in Switzerland that I can't think of. The largest address of all is the 5 million+ coins that balduro burned after the airdrop ended.

Most people in Iceland buy bitcoin using localbitcoins.com , and if they have AUR there is nothing stopping them from exchanging to BTC. AUR can be used as a middle man currency between ISK and BTC.

I have also seen people ask on Facebook groups if someone can sell them bitcoin.

There are some people in Iceland that mine bitcoin and sell to others, others have for some reason money abroad, since before the currency controls or they are living abroad and can move some money to foreign exchanges. The normal person living here can't wire transfer money to a foreign exchange to buy bitcoin because of the currency controls.
