I don't have any chesscoin at all but I'm a chess player as well as a chairman of a local chess club here in my community. I knew what a player needs. FIDE Arena is too expensive to play. Chess.com will not give you title and no tournament with prizes. Both sites don't have any crypto integration in their sites. Chesscoin is an opportunity to make a global chess association of online players. Perhaps could even give world championship through income of chesscoin.

The 2nd entry in my blog is dedicated to the checkpoint:

Please see the bug report for an overview:
* no uptodate checkpoint: https://github.com/COINFORCHESS/ChessCoin/issues/1

Why is it good to have a checkpoint ?
* at least until the checkpoint time the blockchain can not be manipulated anymore
* the syncing speed for new users will be better
  * since their clients with a newer checkpoint will decline clients which are on a fork

read more also in the new project I created:
* https://github.com/chess-fan/blockhashes-of-ChessCoin

---

my ChessCoin blog: https://github.com/chess-fan/thoughts

Hey, that's good news in the early morning  Wink

The checkpoint is important for building a bootstrap.dat?
If I build a bootstrap.dat for ChessCoin then end this ~ Sep. 2016 and then the blockchain must be downloaded...
So far every month I'm saving all blockchain for security and for new users...
Do we need a new wallet for Win, iOS and Linux?

Best regards
I am running and staking my chesscoin walllet downloaded a week ago if there are some weakness on it I don't know there are 4 to 6 active connections and I'm earning a good amount from staking but it will be good if you can create a new version of the wallet since the dev is using the old one i can donate 2000 chesscoin and the other could follow


Thanks for your feedback :-)

I have actually experienced the same, currently max. 6 peers

here is the task I created:
* how many peers do users get in the wallet? https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/5

about "new version":
* as stated in the roadmap draft (1): "this is what I am currently doing:
analyzing the ChessCoin project: the software, the community and other aspects"

but I also do not want o shit on someone's project, that's why we need to identify what the current dev intends to do from here on (2).


(1) https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/6
(2) see my blog: "But let's not forget... first the current dev (aka: Isolani159) needs to be contacted about his plans (why he did not update yet; his ongoing plans with ChessCoin; ...) before starting something that brings only negative thoughts, frustration into this all - this is surely not what we all need or want!" https://github.com/chess-fan/thoughts

I am not sure if you are adressing me or the whole community?

I am also new here and what I do currently is:
* analyzing the ChessCoin project: the software, the community and other aspects
* see e.g. roadmap draft: https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/6

This will tell me how much work there is to be done here.

From what I quickly skimmed in the past threads, there was once some betting done on championships, but nothing else with chess communities.

The last 18 months showed that the opportunity was not used, and lost and the image of this project got more bad than good. At first when I looked at this project, I thought: "As usual, just a pump&dump coin" :-(

I'm visioning of a wallet where we can play chess, join tournament, earn rating and title online. An organization of chess players different from FIDE. Let us make our own organization with chesscoin as our currency. I just can't move what I have in mind. I also need a team, a community, and funding to do so.
Who's with me? Let's organize...

my chesscoin address: CQZpf5uwVssL2hWHeDTyvHCcYQx3UXC6Gf

Thanks for your feedback :-)

I have created 2 tasks from your thoughts:
* add more features to wallet (play chess, ...) https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/8
  * see my comment there
* make an organization: https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/7

Hi,

I have added one of your ideas to this task:
* make an organization: https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/7

> I'm a chess player as well as a chairman of a local chess club here in my community.

I am also a longterm chess player, that is why this coin tempted me.
I still analyze this project since the last days, and need to come to a result list on which place to tackle first here (software, community, ...).

I am not sure if I understand you(r question)?

My task list is a step to bring order into this chaos (and make a prio list at the end).
* Otherwise: your and other people's ideas will just disappear in this thread :-(
People can reply to the tasks specifically and we can work then something out, assign people, ...

Currently where you can "earn something" is:
* by running the wallet and you get coins via the PoS mechanism.

Everything else: is just a hope, promise. Nothing more.

What we now make out of this all is what will bring "profit", and hopefully also fun, later on.

Hi,

> I've message Isolani about relaunching chesscoin but there's no answer yet

Yeah, from what I skimmed in the past threads he is not so active anymore :-(

One goal of my current analysis is (not only software analysis):
* to identify people with skills, so we can assign then tasks: https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues

Problem is there's no funding... If I'm just the holder of that 7M chesscoin I'll spend it all for making the dreamed playing website. I know later I'll gain.

Well, I have no clue for what those 64% premined CHESS coins were actually used
* I only remember vaguely, from my backreading, an Android app was planned, but the guy did not finish. Did he actually get some coins for not doing anything?

I must say without funding my motivation will also sink:
* but: there is a nice angel who donated to me already. I guess he saw - correctly - what I can contribute here.

As said, my current status is:
* analyze the project (software, community, ...) to see where are its good and bad points.


Anyways, people should ask themselves if the coins they hold currently are worth something or not.
And how much more worth it could be when some ideas are actually implemented, by motivating people with some of those coins they have ;-)

Can someone please send a PM also to this user:

* https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=702430

THANKS!


It is about his antivirus problem.

The task itself is here:

reason I ask is:

* bitcointalk tells: "You have exceeded the limit of 2 personal messages per day. Buying a Copper membership may increase your limit."

Wooowwwww what is going on here - so much was not the whole last year going on...  Cheesy

For me is now relevance:

- We need is a checkpoint this is very important... If we have a checkpoint, we can regularly do a bootstrap - in addition, we do a monthly backup of the blockchain for backup and download ?!

- We need a virus check - I've been following orders and landed in 2013 as well - so I would say this is the code base from 2013...
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1510517.msg18900923#msg18900923

Part of my security analysis shows that the code base is from 2013 (the github version of 2016 is just the upload time).
Anyways, be it 2013 or 2016, when I'd want to "test" something I take the freshest codebase of bitcoin itself and not some old software where security bugs are already known for :-(

The code base 2013 also explains why we need a chesscoin.conf to even build the network?

I downloaded the Blockchain with 40Mbit in two days and that without problems...

Best regards

> Wooowwwww what is going on here - so much was not the whole last year going on...  Cheesy

it seems, something good is happening :-)

> We need is a checkpoint this is very important...

yes
but since we have now the blockhashes project, at least attempts to manipulate past data will be detected:
https://github.com/chess-fan/blockhashes-of-ChessCoin

one of my tasks is to check if actually someone tampered with the blockchain already:
https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/4


> If we have a checkpoint, we can regularly do a bootstrap - in addition, we do a monthly backup of the blockchain for backup and download ?!

The bootstrap "creation" is independent from the checkpoint so-to-say, but could ofc also be coupled to the regular checkpoint mechanism.



from the link:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1510517.msg18900923#msg18900923
May 2017: "Please help Yobit: The Blockchain is on ~315000 we are already on ~531300: Please do not make any withdrawals / deposits on Yobit"

sounds to me as if YoBit was on a fork, can't tell more without having looked more into it though.


> I downloaded the Blockchain with 40Mbit in two days and that without problems...

Thx, added to: https://github.com/chess-fan/MCT/issues/1#issuecomment-350582394

> The code base 2013 also explains why we need a chesscoin.conf to even build the network?

who knows, we'd need to dig in the code :-)
the normal behaviour in newer software is, that the config file is created automatically, or at least a message pops up telling you to create the file with such and such content
