any new features or insights that you want to incorporate into mc2 now after gaining exp with monero ?

Sorry for the long reply, didn't see this until now.

I probably won't be considering ring signatures for now (it's a lot of work), but may switch to EdDSA for the signature scheme. I don't think I'll be initially added stealth addressing either (but you can always do it yourself with OP_RETURN pushes).

It's 100% minable, which is the main reason why it isn't a scam.

Says on page one it will be Scrypt based. Will this be a standard algo, or some variant?

Important to me as I can only rent hash.

There should hopefully be a closed source testnet in the next month or two that people can muck around with.

Excellent. I'm sure you'll get plenty of testers - looking forward to participating. What environment do you envision supporting first? Linux/Windows? Or just Linux first?

It should build pretty much anywhere as it's written in Golang. Initial daemon/wallet will be command line.

The main advances over BTC in MC2 are 51% attack-resistance, less blockchain bloat, and a democratic system of altering certain parameters; is that correct?

The democratic aspect worries me a bit. I'm not so impressed with the results of democracy in the real world, where it appears that democracies are susceptible to hijacking by wealthy factions, who then alter the laws to favor themselves. Eventually these factions make themselves into oligarchs. Isn't it better to have a philosopher-king dev who is committed and incentivized to "do the right thing" vis a vis the coin?

Voting by stakeholder for anything aside from voting on PoW will be unspecified from my prototype, I'm just laying the groundwork for the voting.

Update:
- Core consensus code for the PoW/PoS completed but virtually untested
- Auxiliary database code completed
- Supporting RPC calls at about 50% complete
- Simulation network for testing about 50% complete
- Test coverage approx. 15-20%
- New difficulty algorithm for PoS system

Will be moving onto simulation network testing this month, progress is more or less on time.
