Hey folks,

I'm posting this in both Gizzard's original thread and the community-run one.

I'm still looking to (help) refine and improve this chain (or a future one for CROC).  I've been caught up lately in getting my crap together for a late-filing to pay tribute to the Empire and to one of its client-states.

I've also been procrastinating partly because I discovered Jeff Duntemann's _Assembly Language Step By Step: Programming with Linux_ (https://www.amazon.com/Assembly-Language-Step-Step-Programming/dp/0470497025/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1529467126&sr=8-1&keywords=jeff+duntemann ).  Ultimately C++/C/C# and all other programming languages (Python, Java, TLA+, Ruby, Pascal, etc) beside machine-code are translated at a low-level into object-code and I've been delving into this [compilers/development-environments usually have an option to output the related object-code].   One of the main themes of that book is figuring out HOW things work.

There are a few features from some wallets that I want to figure out and potentially incorporate into CROC (to add useful features, and make the wallet less generic/old-school or better aesthetically) but the main overall desideratum remains to slim the block-size and memory (RAM) usage  (one thing I encountered, for example, is coins such as XMR use a more dynamic block-size based on a weighted-average of recent blocks).

There are a few things I want to experiment with (and methodically improve relevant skill-sets) including the following: I encountered where in the codebase (for some coins) nodes can be hard-wired into the code (e.g. src/chainparamsseeds.h) and I sort of want to get more hardcore into Cmakefiles and Makefiles generally.  I also want to experiment with some networking material I've encountered (a lot of which is very relevant or useful). I'd like to be able to compile Linux and the useful Windows variants (7 through 10) and eventually Mac, Android, Iphone (Swift) and RaspberryPi (and similar [Arduino]).  The QT API (the GUI interface for most coins) and some of the database APIs/interfaces with C-code are areas I want to figure out and test/experiment with; also gaining some facility with running the test-suites and some other features that most coins have latently but are probably seldom used -- except by the more highly-skilled/experienced teams.

I also picked up a few more exhaustive classics on C++/C (Bjarne Stroustrup, Kernighan and Richie, Stephen Prata) -- the latter two books have a LOT of practice material, whereas the creator of C++'s book (Stroustrup) is more interpretive and encourages creative work through a sort of guideline approach.

Anyway, for now CROC is de facto like a staking DOGE with an arguably "goldilocks" rate of inflation.  On the inflation point, I've reconsidered the last post I made about possibly revisiting a DPOS-phase again; instead, I think it would be smarter to insure the inflation keeps its steady pace (sort of like how BTC, for instance, never had any big insta-mine and those coins are largely obtained through open, unhampered markets).

I do work long hours and am pretty bookish (have wide interests... [economics, philosophy, various languages, history are all on the back-burner at the moment] ... I was watching some PBS show on the First World War in the background while composing the bulk of this post, for instance) so please don't expect this to all unfold tomorrow -- but I did want to drop a note and poke people to indicate that this stocky critter [CROC] is still alive and will see later versions.

Re-posting in this thread too...

PLEASE no forks needed here..  

I am happy with what we currently have with CROC  & it works for me and alot of other peeps.

Sorry folks don't expect to run this peer/nova coin clone on an ARM processor with no resources, or on a free tiny AWS node.

These clones are resources hungry, especially with the aggressive block gen time CROC has.

BTW, when is the last time you where able to have Yobit apply any update to a coin listed on the exchange?

Hello.
I support this plan and hope  it ought be smash! Seamless activity, thoughtful vision!

Interesting, that would seem to be a 50-50 split on a voice-vote.  I suppose it's best to figure out how Bitcoin-Cash forked from BTC, Monero-classic from Monero, Wisp plans to from Spectrecoin, Linda-derivatives every-other-week from Linda. etc (so that coins in a separate chain can be awarded one-for-one to CROC holders).  Despite being a CROC-whale and determined holder, I have to point out that the chain is heavy (arguably, more memory-intensive than necessary) and the wallet is generic and minimal.  I still want to work on and help improve things; so think this might be a better course: leaving CROC alone and working on a side-chain (a "baby-CROC" that is intended to see future development) that will be awarded one-for-one.

@MilkandPie4U Yeah... never tried to have Yobit update a chain and keep trading available (they don't exactly have the best reputation).

Hmm... I private-messaged the config file that I'm using a couple days ago (you have the right rpcport?? mine is using the rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 also).

Here's some more active nodes from the getpeerinfo command (none of which seemed to be in the config file info I sent earlier however):

5.13.143.100:39437
70.71.243.13:39437
104.254.110.125:39437

195.252.66.150:39437
198.89.30.53:39437
212.24.96.87:39437


Those have all been online in the last few mins and should get you synced.

Thank you Heratys.
For about a week now i have been syncing because for over 20 times, i have had to stop and restart my wallet because syncing had simply ceased.
The wallet takes a lot of memory and CPU too

I've had a working Crocodile Cash node for the past few days.
Not much CROC to stake with but it's a start.
Where are the CROC social groups?
Telegram
Discord
The twitter is inactive; last tweet was in October last year

What's going on?

This coin is fine!

I'm pretty sure there is no Telegram or Discord active for CROC.  Someone in the original thread was asking about this a few day ago also: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2076948.msg41521666#msg41521666 .

CROC is in its community's hands.  Obviously there's interest in a Discord or Telegram (there is a Slack and a couple websites behind-the-scenes too); anyone is free to set up one of these platforms and help build out the ecosystem.

I'll be responding to your private message in a moment.

BTW it's good to see some support in Africa.

Hey,

So yesterday was CROC's birthday -- the reptile is just over one-year old.

For whatever reason I was reflecting on the _Watchmen_ comic series a few hours ago (and I'm about to characterize CROC as the Rorschach of crypto
[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_(comics) ]) ... it's maybe not pretty or glamorous, it's underground, somewhat gritty but has its underdog strong points and utility.

Without trying to [over-]spin things or "sell the sizzle instead of the steak", I'm going to rehash things and why I think this chain has a promising future...

The pros for CROC (in my view) include the following:

* The mining hash rate is usually a steady net hash around 230 TH/s (fluctuating between [roughly] 150 and 350 TH/s).  From this, my assertion is that the barrier to entry for miners is somewhat high for the SHA-256 algorithm (it costs tangible hash or rental cost to mine new CROC).  This is somewhat a scarcity argument. In my view, miners should stake what they earn, but it's for them to decide what is best for their situation ultimately.

* The inflation-rate of 12% is somewhat high but not such that the two markets are inundated with coins generated through staking.

* CROC's currently trading on both Cryptohub and Yobit (which allows for the potential of arbitrage between the two exchanges).

* The daily market volume on Cryptohub seems to be about 0.04 - 0.07 BTC [with spikes as high as 1.15 and 0.43] and on Yobit the daily volume seems to average between 0.01 and 0.02 BTC.  Thus, if anyone builds a position and is smart enough to *just* sell his or her stakes (w/o touching the principal or taking support orders out entirely) this will/should generate a reliable income ... particularly in the medium to long term [as people figure out the over-inflating chains won't always have enough buyers to support an ever-growing supply... particularly as there are many similar alternatives].
 
* The current supply is in the small-to-medium range --  (several years from now it'll reach 55 million -- but it's not very close to that at this point).

* Of those being offered for sale at prices higher than the current market price only 8.6% of the supply is available for sale (45,000 available for sale on Yobit and 252,000 on Cryptohub =  297,000 total [the CROC-universe as I write is 3,446,335].

* CROCcash still has its penny-stock aspects (the comparative cost of gaining a sizable proportion of... say... the stakes of Cardano is significant).

* I have probably left out other positives but I want to send this message off today ^_^ .

The negatives include:

* the chain isn't being worked on (right now -- maybe in the future once some proof-of-concept stuff has been adequately developed in related chains).

* the RAM and CPU use of the chain is sizable (part of which is attributable to the 30 second-block time, part to the relatively large size of the blocks themselves, and probably part because the codebase could use some refining or updating).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Finally, for overall backdrop themes...

My view of many crypto-charts (of course there are counter-examples to be found) is that most still are in a downtrend or trading sideways (despite the recent couple weeks).  Look for instance at  https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/monero/ or https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/dash/ .

Staking chains at least provide an income source (comparable to dividend-paying stocks or bonds) ... but allowing people to opt out of the paradigm [somewhat] of corporations being treated like de facto persons legally in most countries worldwide (which presents ethical problems as they can lobby to change laws internationally in their favor... producing a corrupt corporatocratic mileu ... as opposed to an environment favoring the agency of actual thinking/acting/living persons).

One should, arguably, be in crypto for reasons beyond a potential-lambo (or even building/supporting-the-building Seasteads/future micro-nations ^_^, fiscal and political sovereignty without just the trappings, whitewashing, and make-believe, and selective/politicized support for democracy/free-speech/free-press/free-assembly).

Meanwhile, interest rates are slowly being pushed up worldwide as central bankers primary tool is monetary policy (which should make debt loads more difficult for people to handle that are playing too much with that particular fire).  My view is that fractional-reserve banking / finance-by-credit is one of the chief components of the boom-bust cycle.

I was watching something on the BBC earlier today about the Turkish Lira falling dramatically today because the POTUS-monkey was looking to do trade sanctions on Turkey because he's in some 1970's era trade-war headspace/fever so the political risk of fiat currencies as the various politicians squabble over their fiefdoms and interest-groups is relevant to people worldwide.

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

This is just ancillary/unrelated stuff following...  mostly sharing some [obscure] theme music:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUEQRaw85DA // sort of neo-hippie stuff from Seattle (some album from 1994)

a little more abrasive/anarchist/Hakim-Bey-influenced stuff (also from Seattle):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulDJzfn5BiI&list=RDEM2Pm-A0jo6BoVQ643Rn9CPA&index=4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyOkHrD_XvA

Significantly more abrasive (New York stuff from about 1996 e.v. [Bill Laswell, Bootsy Collins, Yamatsuka Eye, Mitch Harris, Buckethead, and others] : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tG9sGHx6ug

The Swedish group Entombed's "Hollowman" album (not really suitable for everyone's taste... it is what it is : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFCxH_EdbKU&list=PL6_qhP3eWX5PzB-iDAJKnzzssemtQoisa )

Lastly, I am trying to expand my coding background and related skillsets to do some work which will ultimately benefit this chain (not looking to detract from this anyhow)... eventually there might/will be a spin-off coin in the bitcoin-cash manner relative to BTC (I have some ideas in mind and things I'm looking at doing in the little free-time that I have available).  Anyhow this shouldn't be seen as the primary motivation for anyone but just some potential icing for the cake.

CROC has no masternodes.  You're welcome to set up a node/wallet, but the mining reward and the staking are distinct (mining is 1-CROC-per-block reward, while the staking reward fluctuates in value -- sometimes more than 1 per block but usually somewhat under).

It's unfortunate that Cryptohub is closing; it offered a unique interface incorporating mining/exchange/pooled-staking and many other features.

Obviously the closure does alter the landscape for CROC (although Croc-cash still has an exchange available with Yobit).  However, I still like the overall specs of this coin (annual percentage stake, current coin supply, network hash rate) as noted in previous messages... even if CROC sometimes seems like the losing combatant in this (scene from the 60s movie _Cool Hand Luke_ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trDsXlDJIbM ).

From Cryptohub's closure message I was personally affected in the thefts as I was starting to build an ETH balance to participate in Seasteading's partner-blockchain (Varyon 
    https://www.blue-frontiers.com/en/ ,
    https://medium.com/@bluefrontiers/varyon-buying-staking-referenda-for-seasteads-seazones-97c47e197fff
    https://www.seasteading.org/ ) and that small-but-intended-to-grow ETH balance seems to be gone and I was probably affected/pilfered-from/raided in a couple other mainstream coins.

The parasitical, scum-of-the-earth who make (or supplement) a living through theft/stealing-OPP are the enemies of civilization/civil-society and I wish more people worldwide would grok some of the arguments of these two books:
    https://www.amazon.com/Ethics-Liberty-Murray-N-Rothbard/dp/0814775594/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1537640957&sr=8-1&keywords=ethics+of+liberty ,
    https://mises.org/library/rise-and-fall-society -- nearly everyone would be better off.

The hack also seems to have taken out the only evident active mining pool.  It's too bad many mining pool operators seem to be so fickle... I had mined at one a week or so back, stopped mining when my spreadsheet showed it became profitable to rent a miner vs the support-bid price, later found the pool wasn't hosting CROC at the point when it became profitable to mine as opposed to purchase again.

Anyhow, both getting some mining pools and a block explorer existing again would seem to be the things needed most at this juncture.  I do have some pretty severe time-demands but hope to move or see stuff in that direction eventually.

Also, as a further status quo/state-of-things aside I saw a link to the following "All the World's Money" infographic (I remember the original one from 2015 ... it was actually one of things that got me to consider crypto back then):
    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/this-is-how-much-money-exists-in-the-entire-world-in-one-chart-2015-12-18
    http://money.visualcapitalist.com/worlds-money-markets-one-visualization-2017/

While that chart is dated to October 2017 (before the December-January mania), it's obvious there's room for greater participation of digital currencies in general.

Hey folks,

I'm posting this in both Gizzard's original thread and the community-run one.

I'm still looking to (help) refine and improve this chain (or a future one for CROC).  I've been caught up lately in getting my crap together for a late-filing to pay tribute to the Empire and to one of its client-states.

I've also been procrastinating partly because I discovered Jeff Duntemann's _Assembly Language Step By Step: Programming with Linux_ (https://www.amazon.com/Assembly-Language-Step-Step-Programming/dp/0470497025/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1529467126&sr=8-1&keywords=jeff+duntemann ).  Ultimately C++/C/C# and all other programming languages (Python, Java, TLA+, Ruby, Pascal, etc) beside machine-code are translated at a low-level into object-code and I've been delving into this [compilers/development-environments usually have an option to output the related object-code].   One of the main themes of that book is figuring out HOW things work.

There are a few features from some wallets that I want to figure out and potentially incorporate into CROC (to add useful features, and make the wallet less generic/old-school or better aesthetically) but the main overall desideratum remains to slim the block-size and memory (RAM) usage  (one thing I encountered, for example, is coins such as XMR use a more dynamic block-size based on a weighted-average of recent blocks).

There are a few things I want to experiment with (and methodically improve relevant skill-sets) including the following: I encountered where in the codebase (for some coins) nodes can be hard-wired into the code (e.g. src/chainparamsseeds.h) and I sort of want to get more hardcore into Cmakefiles and Makefiles generally.  I also want to experiment with some networking material I've encountered (a lot of which is very relevant or useful). I'd like to be able to compile Linux and the useful Windows variants (7 through 10) and eventually Mac, Android, Iphone (Swift) and RaspberryPi (and similar [Arduino]).  The QT API (the GUI interface for most coins) and some of the database APIs/interfaces with C-code are areas I want to figure out and test/experiment with; also gaining some facility with running the test-suites and some other features that most coins have latently but are probably seldom used -- except by the more highly-skilled/experienced teams.

I also picked up a few more exhaustive classics on C++/C (Bjarne Stroustrup, Kernighan and Richie, Stephen Prata) -- the latter two books have a LOT of practice material, whereas the creator of C++'s book (Stroustrup) is more interpretive and encourages creative work through a sort of guideline approach.

Anyway, for now CROC is de facto like a staking DOGE with an arguably "goldilocks" rate of inflation.  On the inflation point, I've reconsidered the last post I made about possibly revisiting a DPOS-phase again; instead, I think it would be smarter to insure the inflation keeps its steady pace (sort of like how BTC, for instance, never had any big insta-mine and those coins are largely obtained through open, unhampered markets).

I do work long hours and am pretty bookish (have wide interests... [economics, philosophy, various languages, history are all on the back-burner at the moment] ... I was watching some PBS show on the First World War in the background while composing the bulk of this post, for instance) so please don't expect this to all unfold tomorrow -- but I did want to drop a note and poke people to indicate that this stocky critter [CROC] is still alive and will see later versions.

Re-posting in this thread too...

PLEASE no forks needed here..  

I am happy with what we currently have with CROC  & it works for me and alot of other peeps.

Sorry folks don't expect to run this peer/nova coin clone on an ARM processor with no resources, or on a free tiny AWS node.

These clones are resources hungry, especially with the aggressive block gen time CROC has.

BTW, when is the last time you where able to have Yobit apply any update to a coin listed on the exchange?

Hello.
I support this plan and hope  it ought be smash! Seamless activity, thoughtful vision!

Interesting, that would seem to be a 50-50 split on a voice-vote.  I suppose it's best to figure out how Bitcoin-Cash forked from BTC, Monero-classic from Monero, Wisp plans to from Spectrecoin, Linda-derivatives every-other-week from Linda. etc (so that coins in a separate chain can be awarded one-for-one to CROC holders).  Despite being a CROC-whale and determined holder, I have to point out that the chain is heavy (arguably, more memory-intensive than necessary) and the wallet is generic and minimal.  I still want to work on and help improve things; so think this might be a better course: leaving CROC alone and working on a side-chain (a "baby-CROC" that is intended to see future development) that will be awarded one-for-one.

@MilkandPie4U Yeah... never tried to have Yobit update a chain and keep trading available (they don't exactly have the best reputation).

Would we be speaking about a miracle, if CROC (CrocodileCash) reappears again in less than one year, with a new homepage and some new skills, other than a hardfork, where
all the older coins are swaped using some mad SWAP rate (50,000:1  Huh), like some other devs have done, leaving the older investors at the rain?  Grin
We'll see... start the counter.

For my part, I'm getting heavily into assembly programming because I find it interesting (and it has points of overlap/interplay with Linux/Unix and C/C++).  I had a few courses in college and university using C++ (and it was the first programming language I learned ... but only moderately in-depth at that point -- also learned/used some Java, VHDL, assembly for Motorola processors, and SQL and related stuff on data structures, databases, graphics, search algorithms, number theory, etc  ).  I recognize that higher-level languages like Python, Ruby, and TCL are useful because they make building stuff less of a chore (e.g., websites using frameworks or Ruby on Rails) but I kind of dig the first-principles and rigorous kind of stuff.  Just to indicate context, most bitcoin-derived cryptos are written in C++.

So guys, I hope the DEVs are prepairing something solid for the future of this old new coin.

The only one who ever called his-or-herself a developer for CROC was Gizzard and he's MIA.  Others are interested parties only.  I am very interested in CROC but maybe you should consider it to be hibernating.  Croc's have a fossil-record of being around for last 55 million years; hopefully, you won't need to be so patient.  Roll Eyes

Hmmm... maybe we can come together as a bask (Group of Crocodiles) and get something going, I know Altcoins all too well Cool

Hard Fork Reward Change or Hard Fork Codebase + Algorithm change + Swap:Ratio ? e.g PoW + PoS + Masternodes with one of the popular Exotic Algorithms that ASIC's are designed for ? Maybe Scrypt or X11 as a diversion away from SHA-256 ?

The swap ratio would be decided by polling from the community with the amount of CROC need to be traded in for said new coin, e.g CCASH ? 10:1 ? 5:1 ?

This will keep the Initial starting coins in existence to a minimum and we can add a lower reward schedule per Mechanism, e.g PoW Reward + PoS/Masternodes Reward + Ratio of Reward

Sound like an idea ?

We probably would also have to inform YoBit of the Coin Swap Hard-Fork to the new codebase if we wan't to keep a spot there as that is the only current Exchange to Trade CROC

I would be more than happy to help out this long living community coin as long as we all put our realistic ideas together and turn it into something compelling Smiley
