If you have decent knowledge of the bitcoind codebase and would be interested in working on a alt coin that has some interesting changes, send me a PM.

I'm most likely in anyways.

I've had something in mind for a while, just need people with the time to code.  I can write the technical specifications and the pseudocode algorithms.

I had some ideas about a true CPU friendly- GPU hardened coin that would adjust as both hash rate and GPU technology evolved.

It involves using a radically different type of difficulty adjustment system that I do not believe has been seen before.

However, that project has moved way down on the list in light of the number of Alt-coins that have come online lately.

When a few of these coins naturally evolve out of use, or I ever get caught up on projects  Cheesy  Cheesy   , I will go back and continue to work on that code.

I'd be interested in helping out and have been doing a bit of research on the topic recently.

I am also interested in would like to discuss ideas, have been thinking about this for a while. I'm still waiting for what I consider to be an "ideal" cryptocurrency to evolve, something that's relatively light-weight and scalable but also can secure the blockchain efficiently and inexpensively. I think ppcoin might be the closest thing to this now, but ppcoin has a handful of shortcomings and potential concerns in my opinion.

Personally I think it would be prudent to look into different hashing algorithms.... once ASIC out for SHA256, LTC price rising.. only matter of time... what are the other algorithm options that could be considered??

I have an idea or two as well. I thought about just working on a new coin with a few of my friends, but this seems like a better route.

I have an idea, dont know if its good or not but anyways: what if somehow all miners benefited from all minimg so that the protocol im essence forced everyone into becoming one unified pool. My idea is that the freshly minted coins would be attributed to everyone that was participating with minimg at that time. Just as today wherw you wait for confirmation of your transactions, the mining bounty would be worked out over time so to speak. Ie the protocol itself serves as the mechanism spreading the mining bounty to all participants. If we got sometying like this, then perhaps we would be able to get around some of the concerns one might have regarding centralized big pools. Ie lets make a protocol that makes everybody mining part of the "global poool".

There are quite a few things to discuss. We need somewhere to throw ideas around. If there is serious intent behind this I could put up an ad free phpBB forum or something similar for discussions.

Give me some psuedocode and I'll try my hand at implementing it Smiley

Okay, I'll give a shot at writing up the technical paper this weekend.
