Which isn't going to help with Bottlecaps.

From memory the relevant switches in Bottlecaps are splitthreshold and combinethreshold.
The limits of these depend on where they are set, which is slightly mad.
In the .conf or command line the max is (IIRC) 200/400 whilst via the RPC is walletbalance/500 and walletbalance/250 respectively.
So to set these to maximum you would need to type into the debug window,
splitthreshold 9999999999
and
combinethreshold 9999999999

And repeat every time you restart the wallet. Alternatively you could have a script that sends the RPC commands at start up.
Thanks for the correction.

And after every stake... because it'll increase your max threshold.
What threshold you put in, it just gives you a different one. Someone mentioned that the threshold goes up as the amount you have goes up.

Right... it only goes up if you set the threshold higher after your balance goes up.  It does not go up automatically.

CAP need hardfork.
1. Reduce max PoS reward from 1000 to 500 to reduce inflation.
2. Fix PoS rate to 200% instead of floating rate as now 1-200%
3. Change retarget rules to prevent percentage cheating.
4. Remove PoW mining.

If all agree, I can take over code development.

I like mining caps.
maybe reduce % to 50% or even 25% ??
and get rid of max pos reward.

CAP with 50% = PHS - not very popular.
CAP with max pos reward = HYP - very popular.
No max PoS reward = not match blocks an little difficulty = ease fork and double spend.

I came to crypto through mining and have always appreciated the notion that anyone with a machine fast enough to play most modern AAA games can setup a Scrypt miner and attempt to grab some blocks. I dont see the flash mining in conjunction with Coinmarketcap rankings as an issue with CAPs and the solution around alternating between PoW and PoS that's been going on in HBN is an interesting solution to flash mining.

I'm having difficulty seeing the upside of removal of max CAPs per block cap, and PoW.

With PoS only the argument by luminaries remains 'Rich get richer' https://youtu.be/3W_3AQrQEOM?t=130 I've seen days where multiple large addresses are staking, and driving down the percentage, when a miner comes in and swipes most of the next 100 blocks - always makes me smile. The variable stake has kept the percentages well below 200% in the past year and like the richlist of most other PoW/PoS coins there is a noticeable pareto distribution.

What would the supply look like if we had a fixed 200%? 2x - 3x higher? What's the theoretical market cap of 386,208,048 - 579,312,072 Million CAPs circulating? I'm not sure making the growth Bottlecaps easier benefits the currency in any game theory scenario.

The uncapping of stake makes sense if there is a shift of staking into tiers - e.g, a 'master node' locks down 100k caps and stakes at x% every y# days with no max, a regular wallets stake less at shorter intervals with a max.

A little crypto-Bikeshedding is fun but with nobody helping Tranz code, nothing changes.

I'm not looking for any of the above changes but maybe if you setup yes/no voting addresses CAP's holders can send some cap to vote. If you can get some 'yes' votes that carry the weight of the address sending the vote maybe there is some interest in the community.

1. You want to reduce inflation.
2. You want to increase inflation.

Can you explain why this is a better solution?

3. What is percentage cheating?

4. Is there enough people POS mining for this to be sustainable with the minimum 14 days coin age?

Can you please share a little more details about what you would like to do?

Summary 1 and 2 keep inflation as now.
Fixed PoS rate reduce CPU load, and user not need wait low difficulty to start mining.
3. One of node 62.210.122.161 have wrong time (-1 hour ) and affect to other wallets (you can't PoS minting or difficulty go down)
Also someone can increase PoS rate to 200% get stake and then reduce to 100-130% for others.

I vote No to any of the proposed changes.

The core functionality of CAPs is fine as it is.  The current 200% max; variable with difficulty along with the maximum stake reward/block functions just fine.

The only complaints against Bottlecaps with any type of regularity are that the wallet uses too much resources.  Any development should focus on this type of improvement not on changing the fundamentals.

Also, even though the current split/combine thresholds were set by Tranz at the low value levels for a valid reason no one typically leaves there blocks at these sizes and consequently spend a lot of time in coin control managing their block sizes (ie most people manually make their blocks in the 5000-6000 range).  I think for user 'quality of life' having these values be able to be set at whatever a user wants easily would be a nice change.  I changed these for myself in the source code and as a result just leave my wallet running 24/7/365 never having to even bother with the hassle/waste of time of managing blocks in coin control...it's great.

I'd agree with that

Coin control split-block .
goodness even a sum of value when you filter the transactions list.

The wallet needs to be recompiled at least so it doesn't use so much resources.  It's one of the most resource-hungry wallets in use.  Can you change it to be less resource hungry?

I just want give users equal opportunity for stacking. And if most not agree, I continue use PoS percentage cheating, because only me know how increase PoS rate to 200% when necessary.  Grin
You d be better off explaining to the community how to fix it before everyone else with any holding decides its a broken scam and leaves

Seeing as there is only 0.2 btc on the buy book at cryptopia I'd think twice about spreading FUD and get with community instead of
being an ass hat and showing off.

Anyway we all game the percentages, its part of POS hodling

When you vote yes or no please let us know how much CAP you have.
I have 10M.

Rather than a declaration of ownership by those participating and/or lurking why not use two of the existing claimed addresses:

One of Yours = Yes, FORK IT!
Ej36HXyQjGPyzhw7semZt562nbpUGZmgfP
http://www.presstab.pw/phpexplorer/CAP/address.php?address=Ej36HXyQjGPyzhw7semZt562nbpUGZmgfP

Sofaking = No, UnFORKed with
F2JcokPB94AQmMV11fciePo7MSvrsjuFQV
http://www.presstab.pw/phpexplorer/CAP/address.php?address=F2JcokPB94AQmMV11fciePo7MSvrsjuFQV

Send at ONE Bottlecap from an address to vote with the full weight of that address' content (all votes final, CAPs being kept, yadda, yadda...).

So far you're up quite a few YES votes to my NO vote. Voters can post the transaction ID in thread if they'd like. My thinking is that some impromptu 'governance' does not require much beyond that.

Commence governance'ing
