Feathercoin 0.13 Mandatory Update
The 0.13 release of Feathercoin will start minting Version Bit blocks on block 2,120,000. Version older than 0.9.6.2 only accept block version 2 and 4 meaning that they will fork from the rest of the network. If you are on a version other than 0.9.6.2 then please upgrade as soon as possible to the 0.13 release of Feathercoin to make sure you remain on the correct chain. Version Bits is a replacement for the old block versioning, this allows for multiple soft forks to be run concurrently.

When 0.13 starts minting Version Bit blocks it will start signalling support for Segregated Witness and CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY.

You can download 0.13 from the Feathercoin GitHub release page.

About Feathercoin
Feathercoin is a powerful open source digital currency with monetary properties likened to Bitcoin but under the hood is something very different.

Feathercoin is an upgraded and customised version of Bitcoin. Feathercoin was born with the intent to expand, experiment, and build onto the blockchain technology in a manner open to all for participation. Block hashing uses the excellent NeoScrypt which is an updated version of Scrypt using modern faster elements, see the whitepaper below. Feathercoin is also ten times faster than Bitcoin having 60 second blocks giving it that many times more capacity for transactions. The difficulty adjust eHRC (enhanced Hash Rate Compensation) to make sure that blocks come in on average at 60 seconds is also a unique solution first developed by Feathercoin and now used by several popular coins. Automatic Checkpointing is used to protect the history of the chain and prevent 51% attacks reversing transactions.

Technical features

40 Coin reward per block (Post halving)

It seems to think that the IRC server is down, and doesn't want to find a list of peers..

The warning is that not many other have downloaded the file. I'm sure someone else can come on and independently confirm this to be malware free.

What port?

locate appdata/roaming/featerhcoin..

create feathercoin.conf

Add this info
server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=miner
rpcpassword=SetSomeRandomPassword
rpcport=9337
port=9336

If you are going to mine with more miners on your network you need to add rpcallowip=*.*.*.*

If you got a Radeon 7970 you can use this cgminer command:
cgminer --scrypt -u miner -p SetSomeRandomPassword -o 127.0.0.1:8100 --worksize 256 -g 2 -I 13 --lookup-gap 2 --gpu-engine 1000 --gpu-memclock 1400 --shaders 2048

Psst.. Got Ether?

I am releasing FeatherCoin now. I have been working on this for a while and now want to give it go in the big bad world.

This coin is a fork of Litecoin diving back to its 0.6.3 build. I am a supporter of Litecoin and will be following Coblee’s releases. The Litecoin team is working on a newer release and this project will move with them.

The joys of a Litecoin fork, are that we get to use Scrypt and follow a release designed for specifically for it.  There are a lot of Bitcoin forks but with the advent of ASIC miners we are starting to see how much havoc they can cause. To give us GPU miners shelter we need Scrypt based coins, as, in my opinion, Litecoin is currently the only valid one. Litecoin being as mature as it is makes it hard to join in the fun so let’s start with a new coin that follows Litecoin’s tradition.

FeatherCoin has a block reward of 200 and will have a total of 336 million coins. This makes it four times that of LiteCoin, this is the same position that LiteCoin was set against BitCoin. There is no private preming of this coin.

This coin is in beta like all this cryptocoins.

GUI Version for Windows - http://www.feathercoin.com/FeatherCoin.zip
Windows Daemon - http://www.feathercoin.com/feathercoind.zip
Source Code - http://www.feathercoin.com/feathercoin-0.6.3.zip

There is a website to come and I will get this on to GitHub. I will update this post with some more technical details tomorrow. It has been a long day so I'll leave you to test this over night. markm, if nothing else I hope that you find this coin useful one day. Smoovious, just start mining.


What is the point of having so many coins? That seems to make it much more worthless. Why not have less coins than Litecoin?
