@Currypto I think we're going to want to start adding some things to the announcement (I started reviewing some of the earlier thread and found such things as that Portuguese tutorial on CROC that seemed to be somewhat about CROC-lo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYhdTkm3-Ls ).   I'm going to gather the resources available to help get our announcement pretty complete with what's available.

BTW, does anyone know what font Gizzard used in the original announcement?  It's part of the overall image/design and I think we want to be able to incorporate it into things (such as the website).

Damn... I saw your earlier message today and was surveying things in preparation to make a general status announcement or update to address things.   The block explorer has been obviously useful to have (and I've always loved the visceral-croc background graphic!) and probably the faucet too (I haven't used it for awhile myself, but did previously [90 CROCs worth anyhow based on the faucet's interface -- to this address: https://croc.blockstats.pw/address/CRyw5hxuJbr4pzWXayjf3Fvi9BCG8g1X3E -- other parts of that balance have been stake-rewards]).  Perhaps you'd consider revising this plan (even if payment of CROC or some other coin would be necessary to compensate you for the effort involved in what you have done) or allowing the code to be transferred elsewhere if that would seem a better outcome for you.  I wouldn't object to personally kicking you over some CROC on a regular basis either -- but see below for updated information.
Not until this is fixed. I can fit 2 nodes in that resources.



My VDS RAM cannot be extended (it was a limited offer Smiley) and I don't want to set up another one for nodes only.
So for now block explorer and faucet are closed.

Fair enough.  It's not as though you haven't given ample warning (and it has been hosted on your server-space).

The graphic you posted shows that the RAM that this chain takes up is a problem and it will need to have a smaller relative footprint.  Looking at something such as Doge ( https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin/blob/v1.10.0/src/main.h ) their DEFAULT_BLOCK_MAX_SIZE = 750000 (with a 60s block target) whereas CROC's is MAX_BLOCK_SIZE = 20000000; (with the 30s target).  Peercoin uses 1000000 (https://github.com/peercoin/peercoin/blob/master/src/main.h) but we can probably knock CROC's back to 750000 or maybe 500000 with little ill-effect.

For those that need a block explorer at the moment -- the block height at least can be compared with that here: https://lpool.name/explorer (there's also a SHA-256 multipool that includes CROC in their "pools" tab).

what happened with faucet? Huh Huh

My daily income stream suddenly has dried up  Wink
In the past weeks I already noticed that the faucet dried up a few times. Hope it will be back soon as it is a good way to attract new people to CROC in my opinion.

Just tell me what to update the main post with.

Sorry I have not been interactive, but I am lurking. I have significantly improved my Rust knowledge and will be rewriting the Croc-lo application server.

heratys, I suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Once you are confident with your C++, please take Peercoin and fork it. We will then periodically merge upstream changes with our own, keeping up to date.

When you fork Peercoin, you must do it in a way that does not invalidate everyone's keys. This simply means:

1. Use very similar initial parameters
2. We need large stakers to continue to use their local databases aka the current blockchain.

This way, we:

1. Lose no tokens
2. Continue smoothly

Then people can get their CROC services up again.

In other news I may have lost my 30,000 CROC, whoops! :DDD

Just tell me what to update the main post with.

I'll send a list pretty shortly (I was thinking that **at the very least** we should post the three active pools, the makeshift block explorer, direct links to the two exchanges, the website, the Twitter account, the stub of a coinwiki, and the source code [such as it is]) -- maybe info on the paper wallet or the android wallet (although I suspect these will ultimately require modification).  Also links to any active threads in other languages.

Then people can get their CROC services up again.

Fortunately, there is a competent and experienced group of guys that have been looking at this and so we will hopefully not be reliant on me getting my crap together sufficiently (possibly jeopardizing or making a mess of things by doing it with little pertinent background and too much of a rush).  I also do want to make it a win-win situation for CROC-holders and the ROI-coin team through/upon refining or improving things.

In other news I may have lost my 30,000 CROC, whoops! :DDD

Damn... hopefully you can get them back again (is it something that can be solved by deleting the contents of your local folder [except for wallet.dat] and forcing a resync... or maybe a lost passphrase? [there are some services to recover it if you have some initial info and the encrypted wallet]).  Hyperjacked has told me he's had issues lately getting his wallet synced too, so he's in somewhat similar straits.

@ Currypto

This is the collection of links that I think we should add to the current OP (please feel free to edit any of my notes and put it in your own words):

Domain name registered for eventual website: www.croccash.com
Website (adminstered by Gizzard, so no access avail): www.crocodilecash.ga

Twitter: https://mobile.twitter.com/CrocCash

Active pools:
https://cryptohub.online/pools/
https://lpool.name/pool/CROC
the indelicately named http://coinraper.ddnss.de/

Makeshift blockexplorer:  https://lpool.name/explorer

Coinwiki info-page: https://altcoinwiki.org/en/CrocodileCash (I made updates on this today, including incorporating these links)

Paperwallet generator: https://github.com/RangaBoom/WalletGenerator.net (from the site this seems to also be 169 commits behind what it was forked from ... heh Tongue )
Gizzard's message on that: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2076948.msg21156021#msg21156021

Android wallet: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.mystphysx.wallet.CrocodileCash_Qt

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Again, it would be pretty cool if we can unearth whatever font Gizzard used in his announcement (there's probably some way to search for this ... I poked around a little at What-font-type sites but didn't go too in-depth on this) so that we can incorporate it too.  It's an established part of the "brand" of CROC (hopefully it's open source or the rights to its use won't be an issue even if some sort of premium for its use might be required).

lets get some feedback and see what ppl think...  
its the first draft so maybe we can have my son Luc improve on it depending up what the group thinks

I believe the other logo was a copy n paste off the internet that we don't have permission to use

I did a google image search on "crocodile cartoon character" and found the earlier mascot:  https://www.bigstockphoto.com/image-51178135/stock-vector-strong-angry-alligator-mascot-vector-clip-art-illustration-all-in-a-single-layer

The copyright is listed as under the contributor name of Memo Angeles (other work here): https://www.bigstockphoto.com/search/?contributor=Memo+Angeles .
The CROC is about halfway down the third page (https://www.bigstockphoto.com/search/?start=300&contributor=memo+angeles).

The site says: "Bigstock is your fast, easy-to-use marketplace for quality stock images. We offer over 61 million royalty-free photographs and illustrations from talented photographers and artists around the globe, available for almost any purpose."  (https://www.bigstockphoto.com/aboutus.html)   So I think we're probably not going to be sued by this individual looking for redress its use (but perhaps he should be sought out).

@hyperjacked I like your son's work (and we can probably incorporate it into things) but the cold eye of a croc does have a slightly different impact and is perhaps not quite as approachable as the current one (which is both menacing and amusing at the same time).
