Pokercoin Reboot

Pokercoin (POK) started and died on July 5, 2013.   The original developer created a 100,000 POK premine, announced the coin, and then disappeared the same day.  The chain reached block #301 and then all the miners disappeared.

By the next day only a single node remained - a lonely pokercoin block explorer.   The chain sat unused and neglected.  Then on August 19, 2013 I announced the reboot of the pokercoin blockchain and my intent to destroy the premine.

On August 21, 2013 the 100,000 POK Premine was destroyed!

This post will be updated with more info soon.  Here's a start:

Getting Pokercoin:
* Latest client version: 1.0.2
* Code Repository: https://github.com/superblocks/Pokercoin
* Windows binary coming soon (old version 1.0.0 clients will still work)
* Can't connect?  temporary node:  -addnode=37.139.28.81

Block Explorers:
* http://altcha.in/chain/Pokercoin

All systems go for premine deletion.    The 100,000 POK premine will be sent to the destroyer address 2BuCidDstqL7xDforAjhFxcuStL1V5jzVRa.   

Any objections?  Speak up quick or forever hold your peace.


It is my intent to destroy the 100,000 POK premine on the rebooted chain.

What address shall we use?   I'd prefer something like the 1BitcoinEaterAddressDontSendf59kuE address.   Still trying to figure out how to make one for pokercoin.   Anyone know of scripts or instructions for that?

Or we can go with the way btc-e destroyed 110K of the NVC premine.  See: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=144158.0

Using those instructions, and the web tool at http://gobittest.appspot.com/Address we get:

* In '1 - Public ECDSA Key' field, enter the byte sequence as public key:

0400000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

* Hit send.  Then in the '4 - Adding network bytes to 3' field change the prefix to AB  (pokercoin address version is 0xAB, or decimal 171). Result is:

AB3B4DF4363CAA9E3BD9DA58020D3080BE8230A4AE

* Hit send.  Now we have a Pokercoin destroyer adress:

2BuCidDstqL7xDforAjhFxcuStL1V5jzVRa


Could some folks verify and double check this?  Thanks!

If you started the blockchain from zero why didnt you just alter subsidy function to get rid of special reward of block 2?

Because that would require a fork and new clients for everyone.    This way was quicker, and still lets all the version 1.0.0 clients participate.

Fud.  The rebooted chain was announced at around around block 700.    At the moment of premine destruction on block 2913 there was 152,860 POK outstanding.  Without the premine that is now 52,860 POK outstanding.    Of that I have under 12,000 POK.  The rest is shared among the other miners.

I'll be using a portion of my share to reboot the bounty program.   What will you be doing?

Very few miners currently, and they are not pushing much hashing power.

Network is at block #5386 now, with diff of only 0.011.

Oh my, pokercoin reboot is slowing down.   Did you just mine #7085, eh?

Code:
Block 7085 - 2013-08-27 17:22:26
Block 7084 - 2013-08-26 03:44:59

Chain stays at 0.07 diff for the next 23 blocks.
