I am 100% on board with the interest idea, and think it would go a long way towards promoting holding the coins. Could even implement one of those "must hold x days" rules to make it more effective.

Guys I have a spare resources on my hosting server. I would like to offer some of those resources to the DevCoin project if needed.

I think wiser hit the nail on the head with his point #4 above. From reading through this thread and trying to get an understanding of where some of the issues lie it's clear to me that for this coin to survive one of the main things that need to happen is to switch this coin to Proof of Stake with a fair interest rate, eliminating the need for anyone to buy back Devcoin. Create a new wallet and give people a grace period to transition over to the new wallet, after that burn the old coins. Get the community involved in resurrecting this coin in the same way Dimecoin and Embercoin has, encouraging people to trade the coin and create liquidity

Agree. This makes sense and covers most if not all the issues at hand.

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. Thomas A. Edison

Hi guys, I read a few recent pages of this thread but can't seem to find out which exchange devcoin is listed on. There must be at least one because CoinGecko has a price for it. Thanks for your help.

The Discussion is taking too long

TIME FOR A BACKUP PLAN

While I still believe that Devcoin still has enough community support for "resurrecting", it looks to me that people is waiting for real action rather than more endless discussion. Back to the basics:

"Talk is cheap... Code is gold!"

Let's code some stuff guys!

So, I'm planning to push some stuff to the official repo so you guys can play with it and to provide feedback hands-on.

If you guys want to push some code upstream, go ahead!

This is our playground from now on: http://github.com/coinzen/devcoin/

Let's move convert this discussion into Pull Requests!

Please make a Windows wallet so I can play with it. I cannot code that well (and GitHub is still a mystery to me) so I cannot be much of service in terms of coding.

That sounds like a good move. Can you periodically post updates here on how the coding is going, for those of us who don't code?

Are you lot aware of the panoply of domains this project has had sitting around for years waiting to be deployed?

I really think that instead of throwing around all kinds of F.U.D. about how the coin is broken and so on, you would do better to actually make proper use of the damn coin the way it actually is.

All this moaning and screwing around has served to keep delaying and delaying and delaying the deployment of all the cool stuff we have sitting in the wings.

For example all the problems with the Wiki make the idea of deplying the various special-focus Wikis we have long had domains ready for seem like hmm hmm maybe just not yet, let them get the general-purpose no-specific-focus Wiki working smoothly first before expanding into the whole panoply of specialised-topic Wikis.

We have a perfectly good coin that works just fine, we the original developers are still right here, still waiting for the folks who insisted they needed to take control of various of its domains, run its wiki and so on to actually demonstrate that they are in fact able to perform those tasks adequately.

By the way regarding the current Wiki, is there some reason why we cannot deploy Google Adsense ads on it? Preferably big graphic banners that pey per exposure rather than per click?

I am thinking of setting up all our domains with webservers, if only with placeholder pages explaining what kinds of things we had had in mind for each domain, and since one of our biggest problems is too many shares being allocated to folks who dump the coins instead of to folks who are tying the coins up into various projects designed to absorb and retain coins, maybe it would be a great idea to assign a share per such domain toward hosting and admin, or even a share toward hosting and an additional share toward administrative expenses?

Also maybe it would be a good idea to enumerate and describe some of the projects that aim to tie up coins, create "Corps" out of them, and assign each such "Corp" a share toward administrative costs?

I am also re-visiting the idea of insisting upon actual DeVCoins in payment for various things, especially recurring annual things, that are denominated in DeVCoins, instead of flexibly offering to accept "equivalent value" ( at current exchange rates such as those shown at http://galaxies.mygamesonline.org/latestrates.inc ) in various other coins and assets, to force players to have to resort to some form of exchange to pay those recurring fees and thus be more likely to impact the actual exchange-rates.

I think there are something like two billion devcoins minted each year, with one thousand players an annual fee of two million DeVCoins per player would consume all of that. with only one hundred players it would take an annual fee of twenty million to do so.

You have to have an, or the, entire economy in mind; you need "money sinks" equal to the amount of money being minted if you are to keep MUDflation from running away with itself.


Maybe it is time to make the authorship shares of the Wiki be shares of the DeVCoins that the advertising on the Wiki manages to bring in? Have it buy DeVCoins with the advertising revenue as was originally intended but also give the authors shares only of that revenue?

Bring back to mind yet again that originally one share was intended to be what one person who as a matter of lifestyle puts in typically ten hours per week of coding work was to receive.

How many thousands of words should an author be able to post in a forty-hour month of writing on the Wiki?

Is it not a bit ridiculous to expect forty hours of writing to result in only one thousand words?

How many words SHOULD we really require of authors per forty hours (one share) of writing?

Meanwhile, I am continuing to build up the buy-side of the DVC/LTC orderbook...
