@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).

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.

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).

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).

Hey, I'm checking in here with updates...

I've momentarily parked getting re-acquainted with C++ -- the text mentioned earlier includes material up to the most recent C++14 standard -- in order to focus on getting more in-depth practical knowledge with the Linux distro I'm using (which is necessary and co-requisite).  One of the ROI-coin devs (Gary Hobson) was suggesting the most useful task at-the-moment is to learn to compile Windows wallets from source (this seems to be addressed in this link [ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1080289.0 ] that Gyman posted in Cryptohub's chat.  This'll probably require the use of some virtual machine to test the code on systems I have available now or near-term using different Windows versions... perhaps some people actually running Windows as their usual OS will be roped into testing when the appropriate stage is reached (Hyperjacked??).  I'm planning to get conversant with VMware, VirtualBox and Vagrant.  Essentially, I'm working on needed homework.

In the long-run, I think we want to make CROC more streamlined than simply changing MAX_BLOCK_SIZE's value from 20000000 to 750000 (line 34 in main.h https://github.com/RangaBoom/CrocodileCash/blob/master/src/main.h ), having people update their wallet, and hoping that solves the heavy-CPU usage.

A couple weeks back I was going through Peercoin's threads (the pre-announce and their current thread) and encountered this message [ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=101820.msg1122256#msg1122256 ] where, early-on, they goofed and didn't change the pchmessage parameter so that transactions weren't properly being distinguished between BTC and PPC.  I bounced this off the ROI-coin devs and one of them referenced the same situation having happened to Feathercoin (here): https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/issues/7 .  This will be among the details to look at when we get closer to making this thing happen and effective/not-sloppily done.

To quote a message that Gary wrote: "pchMessageStart is not the only thing you need to modify , have a look at barterdex , where people have to add their coin , the info they need to supply for it, i ll get you an example
Checkpoints are not that important anymore despite popular believe… many think its a thing of the past.
Examples of what coins supply to get listed on a centralized exchange ( this one is BarterDex )
{“coin”:“LTC”, “name”:“litecoin”, “rpcport”:9332, “pubtype”:48, “p2shtype”:5, “wiftype”:176, “txfee”:100000 }
{“coin”:“DGB”,“name”:“digibyte”,“rpcport”:14022,“pubtype”:30,“p2shtype”:5,“wiftype”:128,“txfee”:100000}
{“coin”:“ROI”,“name”:“roicoin”,“confpath”:“USERHOME/.ROIcoin/ROIcoin.conf”,“rpcport”:3376,“pubtype”:60,“p2shtype”:122,“wiftype”:168,“txfee”:10000} " (end quote)

Admittedly the "wiftype" and "pubtype" are nebulous constructs to me at the moment (and only the other day did I see a reference elsewhere to "p2shtype" in something crypto-derived ).  My understanding is that the rpcport and txfee are chosen by the dev/dev-team (but obviously we want to establish a new port # that doesn't conflict with the old CROC or other chains that people are likely to be hosting/supporting).

I'm also putting a feeler out about possibly reinstating a DPOS-period for the forked coin  ... the idea being to encourage present holders to move to the new chain with a coin-swap (so that they'll end up with a greater percentage of the new chain instead of having a "CROC-classic" contingent stringing along the old one -- numbering among the living-dead Yobit chains).  The tentative values I'm kicking around are to make a premine not much more than 300,000 excess of the existing CROC at the moment of the fork.

These quantities aren't set in stone but the PoW and PoS blocks currently being kicked around are something along the lines of this:



int64 GetProofOfWorkReward(unsigned int nBits)
{
    int64_t nSubsidy = 0 * COIN;
 
    if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 1)
    {  // Premine to permit coin-swap of Mk I CROC (excess to be used for airdrop or bounties)
        nSubsidy = 3,200,000 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 2  && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 4000)
    {  // A shorter period of higher mining reward (to not inflate the coin supply too much)
        nSubsidy = 15 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 4001)
    {
        nSubsidy = 1 * COIN;
    }
    
    if (fDebug && GetBoolArg("-printcreation"))
        printf("GetProofOfWorkReward() : create=%s nSubsidy=%"PRId64"\n", FormatMoney(nSubsidy).c_str(), nSubsidy);
    return nSubsidy;
}

// ppcoin: miner's coin stake is rewarded based on coin age spent (coin-days)
int64 GetProofOfStakeReward(int64 nCoinAge)
{
    int64_t nSubsidy = nCoinAge * COIN_YEAR_REWARD * 33 / (365 * 33 + 8 );  //default 12% yr

    // Proof-of-Stake begins at block 1440 (again)
    if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 1440 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 20160)
    {
        nSubsidy = 60 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 20161 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 40320)
    {
        nSubsidy = 45 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 40321 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 60480)
    {
        nSubsidy = 30 * COIN;
    }
       else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 60481 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 80640)
    {
        nSubsidy = 15 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 80641)
    {
        nSubsidy = nCoinAge * COIN_YEAR_REWARD * 33 / (365 * 33 + 8 );  //default 12% yr
    }
    
    if (fDebug && GetBoolArg("-printcreation"))
        printf("GetProofOfStakeReward(): create=%s nCoinAge=%" PRI64d"\n", FormatMoney(nSubsidy).c_str(), nCoinAge);
    return nSubsidy;
}

Finally, @ both Currypto and Hyperjacked I would like to ensure that you guys have _at least the stake or percentage of the net-chain that you had formerly_ (we will try to make you whole again if your wallets are defunct and not stake-able at the moment).

Pretty cool stuff, good to know this is still actively in research, maybe a bit slow, but hey, it's not even listed on CMC yet Smiley.

I'm in for a while, staking on an OrangePi. Would be happy to help testing on that platform (which is basically the same as Raspberry and all those small micro-PCs running some form of Linux).

I've momentarily parked getting re-acquainted with C++ -- the text mentioned earlier includes material up to the most recent C++14 standard -- in order to focus on getting more in-depth practical knowledge with the Linux distro I'm using (which is necessary and co-requisite).  One of the ROI-coin devs (Gary Hobson) was suggesting the most useful task at-the-moment is to learn to compile Windows wallets from source (this seems to be addressed in this link [ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1080289.0 ] that Gyman posted in Cryptohub's chat.  This'll probably require the use of some virtual machine to test the code on systems I have available now or near-term using different Windows versions... perhaps some people actually running Windows as their usual OS will be roped into testing when the appropriate stage is reached (Hyperjacked??).  I'm planning to get conversant with VMware, VirtualBox and Vagrant.  Essentially, I'm working on needed homework.

In the long-run, I think we want to make CROC more streamlined than simply changing MAX_BLOCK_SIZE's value from 20000000 to 750000 (line 34 in main.h https://github.com/RangaBoom/CrocodileCash/blob/master/src/main.h ), having people update their wallet, and hoping that solves the heavy-CPU usage.

A couple weeks back I was going through Peercoin's threads (the pre-announce and their current thread) and encountered this message [ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=101820.msg1122256#msg1122256 ] where, early-on, they goofed and didn't change the pchmessage parameter so that transactions weren't properly being distinguished between BTC and PPC.  I bounced this off the ROI-coin devs and one of them referenced the same situation having happened to Feathercoin (here): https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/issues/7 .  This will be among the details to look at when we get closer to making this thing happen and effective/not-sloppily done.

To quote a message that Gary wrote: "pchMessageStart is not the only thing you need to modify , have a look at barterdex , where people have to add their coin , the info they need to supply for it, i ll get you an example
Checkpoints are not that important anymore despite popular believe… many think its a thing of the past.
Examples of what coins supply to get listed on a centralized exchange ( this one is BarterDex )
{“coin”:“LTC”, “name”:“litecoin”, “rpcport”:9332, “pubtype”:48, “p2shtype”:5, “wiftype”:176, “txfee”:100000 }
{“coin”:“DGB”,“name”:“digibyte”,“rpcport”:14022,“pubtype”:30,“p2shtype”:5,“wiftype”:128,“txfee”:100000}
{“coin”:“ROI”,“name”:“roicoin”,“confpath”:“USERHOME/.ROIcoin/ROIcoin.conf”,“rpcport”:3376,“pubtype”:60,“p2shtype”:122,“wiftype”:168,“txfee”:10000} " (end quote)

Admittedly the "wiftype" and "pubtype" are nebulous constructs to me at the moment (and only the other day did I see a reference elsewhere to "p2shtype" in something crypto-derived ).  My understanding is that the rpcport and txfee are chosen by the dev/dev-team (but obviously we want to establish a new port # that doesn't conflict with the old CROC or other chains that people are likely to be hosting/supporting).

I'm also putting a feeler out about possibly reinstating a DPOS-period for the forked coin  ... the idea being to encourage present holders to move to the new chain with a coin-swap (so that they'll end up with a greater percentage of the new chain instead of having a "CROC-classic" contingent stringing along the old one -- numbering among the living-dead Yobit chains).  The tentative values I'm kicking around are to make a premine not much more than 300,000 excess of the existing CROC at the moment of the fork.

These quantities aren't set in stone but the PoW and PoS blocks currently being kicked around are something along the lines of this:



int64 GetProofOfWorkReward(unsigned int nBits)
{
    int64_t nSubsidy = 0 * COIN;
 
    if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 1)
    {  // Premine to permit coin-swap of Mk I CROC (excess to be used for airdrop or bounties)
        nSubsidy = 3,200,000 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 2  && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 4000)
    {  // A shorter period of higher mining reward (to not inflate the coin supply too much)
        nSubsidy = 15 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 4001)
    {
        nSubsidy = 1 * COIN;
    }
    
    if (fDebug && GetBoolArg("-printcreation"))
        printf("GetProofOfWorkReward() : create=%s nSubsidy=%"PRId64"\n", FormatMoney(nSubsidy).c_str(), nSubsidy);
    return nSubsidy;
}

// ppcoin: miner's coin stake is rewarded based on coin age spent (coin-days)
int64 GetProofOfStakeReward(int64 nCoinAge)
{
    int64_t nSubsidy = nCoinAge * COIN_YEAR_REWARD * 33 / (365 * 33 + 8 );  //default 12% yr

    // Proof-of-Stake begins at block 1440 (again)
    if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 1440 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 20160)
    {
        nSubsidy = 60 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 20161 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 40320)
    {
        nSubsidy = 45 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 40321 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 60480)
    {
        nSubsidy = 30 * COIN;
    }
       else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 60481 && pindexBest->nHeight+1 <= 80640)
    {
        nSubsidy = 15 * COIN;
    }
        else if(pindexBest->nHeight+1 >= 80641)
    {
        nSubsidy = nCoinAge * COIN_YEAR_REWARD * 33 / (365 * 33 + 8 );  //default 12% yr
    }
    
    if (fDebug && GetBoolArg("-printcreation"))
        printf("GetProofOfStakeReward(): create=%s nCoinAge=%" PRI64d"\n", FormatMoney(nSubsidy).c_str(), nCoinAge);
    return nSubsidy;
}

Finally, @ both Currypto and Hyperjacked I would like to ensure that you guys have _at least the stake or percentage of the net-chain that you had formerly_ (we will try to make you whole again if your wallets are defunct and not stake-able at the moment).

Sure Sounds like a plan! Sorry I've been super busy lately and just saw your message.

Talk to you soon.
Cheers

CROC price reached 400 sat

Someone pushed CROC to 822 sat on Yobit last week (where the CROC are thinning out even more than at "the Hub").

I'm still working on increasing my skill-sets in things that are arguably related (Linux in depth, C++, then blockchain [in that order]). As I've mentioned a few times in various places I'm actually going to be declaring my crypto-income to the supposed "powers that be" -- in my case this includes filing tax returns in both Canada and the US and the FBAR/ Fincen Form 114 (so this upcoming month is going to suck -- and in a big way -- for me).  Nevertheless, in its due and proper course we'll have this chain kicking ass and keep on improving things from there.  While I don't expect this to be an instant "*Lambo*" situation, there will be improvement in a sustained and long-term manner and we'll be looking to extend the domain of things CROC-related (as Gizzard promised and we will help bring about) -- and these aren't empty words.

There is at least one geek/friend that I've known for several years who I'm hoping to bring into the picture to help with testing some of the Windows and server functionality... anyhow there's plans afoot.  

I think in the medium-term the crypto-space still has to calm from the mania-phase from December and January, but CROC is off-the-radar (in trading terminology it has "low beta" or "high alpha"; that is: it's relatively divorced -- in price-terms -- from the wider crypto-world as it's a micro-cap within the space).

For something a bit off-topic (but a worthwhile distraction in my opinion): perhaps no one else here is into this stuff but here's some off-the-well-trodden-track tunes for your entertainment/edification in the meanwhile: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh2j33wD8pA (the british band Napalm Death's '94 album).  Maybe there's a CROC-related-theme here(?) -- ultimately, it's subject to your own interpretation.
