I know this may be considered a bold move, heck, some may despise me for this, but...

Considering Noirbits' absolute lack of support by its founder, barwizi, considering I am the only dev' who has pushed any real changes to the Noirbits repository on Github, I propose a takeover from now on.

Version 2.2.5.0 available ! Fixes a blockchain synchronization bug on clients, update now !
Version 2.2.4.0 available ! Windows binaries are available, with UPNP and QR codes. This new version brings two new RPC calls to
better manage your wallet. addnode allows you to dynamically add a new node to your connections, while getprofitestimate will help you plan your Noirbits minting ! And of course, don't forget you can now refund transactions via the windows client...

Website : http://www.noirbits.com

Why should you follow on this takeover ?

  • Massive fork ongoing. As previously announced on the Noirbits thread, the coin is massively forked. At least 4 separate blockchains have been created today. Had barwizi pushed checkpoints like he was supposed, this situation would not have happened. I guarantee that checkpoints will be pushed on this version.
  • Real developer support. I am a professional developer, that's what I do for a living. I may lack some experience in coins compared to old-timers, but I am catching up pretty quickly.
  • Extended features, starting with 0-confirmation refunds. More details on that in an upcoming post.
If you want to follow up, get the client now :


Coin settings

Coin settings are mostly left intact.

Maximum coins : 21 million.
Block time : 2 minutes.
Block reward: 20 Noirbits.
Retarget : at everyblock, based on the last 30 blocks time average starting at height 33333 Every 30 blocks until further notice. Until then, difficulty rules are unchanged. Old clients will be rejected by this version starting at height 31500. This may seem a short notice, but we're at diff. 10 right now...
Reduced transaction fees : currently, min. transaction fee is 0.1 NRB. Starting at height 31500, it will drop to 0.001 NRB.

Seed nodes

If you encounter sync issues, you can add the following to your Noirbits.conf file

Code:
addnode=54.213.23.213
addnode=54.229.50.161

Pools

The following pool are known or assumed to run on this version of Noirbits, or at least, on the same blockchain :

http://nrb.miners-united.com (confirmed)
http://mnrb.coinmine.pl (confirmed)

Exchanges

As of now, no exchanges trade Noirbits. Cryptsy has suspended Noirbits due to the forks, we are still waiting on their feedback as to what their next move will be. So for now, it's OTC trading only, but be safe, only trade with people you trust or are community trusted.

More info coming up...

A putsch huh.. Hopefully this won't split the great community we have..
Even if he isn't working on the coin recently, barwizi's contribution on the coin and NoirBank has been really helpful and I hope we keep him on our side.

The idea is not to kick him out... if he wants in on this version, he'll be welcome.

i need to read Barwizi's opinion about this.

you have a point, maybe barwizi's time is fragmented between alot of things, but, he is the og dev and taking over doesnt sounds right.

If he doesnt care anymore more about the future of his creation, he has to say it, and the community will follow the dev that wants to step up (i know, you have been active already).

i believe, he wont have any problem to give you the "active dev" mark, but not by forcing yourself into it.


(sorry (again) for my bad english)

You do have a point, but the fork is forcing me to act up. We can't wait for barwizi to randomly show up... I did ask him once for access to the Git, he never replied...

On a side note, pulling out a foocoin clone and changing params does not make you a dev... the only commits he did were pushing checkpoints.

The new wallet doesn't want to sync up. Could the lack of UPNP be in cause? I never had a problem with any of the older clients.

EDIT: I think your move was justified by the emergency situation (Might be unrelated, but the coin just took a hard crash on cryptsy...). Hopefully barwizi just join in on this!

You can add this to your configuration file :

addnode=54.213.23.213


EDIT :I'm still waiting for a reaction from barwizi. He's been active around the forum after I posted this. This should give you a hint on his involvement...

EDIT : I'm working on the UPNP version for Windows.

}

So are my nodes. Most likely rejecting the next block because of the checkpoint. Apparently, we are not getting connections to the block explorer and other peers who have the proper chain... I'm going to look into it.

EDIT: I'm waiting up on a reply from diatonic to get block data for block 30000. We should then be good to go...

I am not up to date with the current Algo for Noirbits, so take what I have to say with a grain of salt. This is mostly just my observations as a miner who watches the 30+ serious AltCoins that contend for top profitability on a daily basis...

As an example, BottleCaps, I don't know what their Algo for recalculations is, but they can handle multiple MultiPool types of hash power being dumped on them all at once, and it handles it without issue. It bounces back fairly quickly, and it has a decent steady following since it proved it can take the speed bumps well.

Can someone that knows a thing or two about the Algo's compare them with Noirbits?
