Announcing TurtleCoin : Fun first, cash later



About TurtleCoin:

Welcome to TurtleCoin, well at least the announcement of. We would like to share with you the dream we have for the coin, what it stands for and where it could go in the future. It has humble beginnings (being a fork of ByteCoin) but already there is a thriving community behind it and a team of developers which is growing every week.

What are we definitely not? We are not a fork and forget coin. We are already modifying the algorithms, and starting code-inroads into features, adding value to what the original ByteCoin codebase had to offer.

And with such unprecedented interest and offers of help so early on, we were initially overwhelmed, taking time to marshal everyone's efforts and gain focus. With weekly updates, on progress and who is working on what part of the project, available on our blog, everyone can see what progress is being made and what direction we are heading.

Wanting to be fun and inclusive is great, but that can sometimes be seen as charlatan. So being incredibly open and transparent is important to us, to build up trust in a community that has seen hundreds of forks of this codebase, offering little other than a name change. We intend to do that by being entirely open source, but also through discussion with our core developers, who are always happy to answer any questions put to them.

We hope the changes we make will be positive and keep us around in peoples hearts.

Everyone is welcome to contribute to the ecosystem, regardless of skills or knowledge (or lack thereof), and we are ready to help people do so. Within just a few weeks, and without any initial pre-mine, ICO, marketing or capital we've seen the formation of:

  • Mining pools
  • Additional builds for other platforms
  • A block chain explorer
  • Trading bots
  • Inclusion on an exchange
  • Public nodes
  • and even merchandise based on our branding

We love and encourage this level of entrepreneurship.

Please feel free to read on, we hope to see you all mining on our pools and talking with us on our Discord channel.

What are we doing differently?


Obviously, the starting block is, No premine, No shenanigans.  We hate it when other coins have done it, and we simply don't agree with that philosophy as it just promotes a coin getting listed as quickly as possible, so people can cash out.  Our motto is very much slow and steady.


Of equal importance are the people who mine/trade TRTL. We wanted to put the fun and the community back into an Alt coin, we want ordinary people to be able to mine with us and generate TRTL, whilst feeling part of a friendly and supportive community.

You can only really produce that supporting and friendly community with openness, that is why every member of the team is on the discord server and regularly monitors it, we have dev updates, we have our GitHub issues tracker and we are always available for questions.  Absolutely nothing is closed off from the public, even our dev discussions are in the open, our dirty laundry, everything.

Where is it going?

The success of a project depends directly on active participation and involvement from all the interested parties on the discovering and decomposition of its needs and requirements, not taking for granted the care needed to determine, document and manage the products, service or project requirements.

We have our development plan (see Roadmap below), and we don't care much about its value on markets, that is not a motivator for us. What we are looking for is to develop the codebase to provide an exceptionally stable network and add features and capabilities into the coin to add value around the core block chain, giving it the potential to be genuinely useful.  But it will be the community that will drive the coin to greater highs, through adoption, feedback and help.

We have already attracted many members to the project, not just devs (and we have some heavy hitters there), but some excellent design, marketing, mathematics & economics experts all providing invaluable input into the project.


We operate a bounty scheme to fund development on the project, we find this the most open and agreeable way to reward people for contributing to not just the coin, but also ancillary projects that add real value to the network.

So Technically what is it?

  • PoW algorithm: CryptoNight
  • Max Supply: 1 Trillion coins @ 2 decimal places
  • Block reward: ~ 29000 TRTL, slowly decreasing over about 40 years
  • Block time: 30 seconds
  • Difficulty: Retargets at every block
  • P2P port: 11897
  • RPC port: 11898

Roadmap:



We hope to all see you there, for pretty much everything else there is this site, which list ALL resources, and we will try to keep this up to date.

Mainly it was time related, I said I would do it.  Time ran short.  The coin was initially announced on 4chan/biz/ back in December where we got the initial traction, jumping from a few hundred to over 4k miners and holders. But then lots of the community were getting things started on reddit at the same time, and things got crazy.  Then NiceHash arrived on the scene.

It was mainly the pressure from people on our discord channel demanding an [ANN] that really focussed the mind and forced me to complete the task I said i'd do for the team.

Also, this forum requires some professionalism and some thought, so when announcing what is, on the surface, just another fork coin.  We had to make sure our message came across well, and that took some time to prepare.

Here is the original task being assigned to me, 26 days ago!

Hi,
155k blocks mined starting form 19 dec last year.
Why did you made the ann here so late?

If there are already 155K blocks who has been mining this ? I thought the ANN said there was no pre-mine, anyway I don't mind, I like Cryptonight coins.
Is there a list of pools available and which exchanges is it on - please not Yobit.

Well, it was mainly people we had attracted from 4chan & reddit to start (although that was the community promoting itself, they like to call it shelling).  But we were added without our knowledge to TradeOgre, which we discovered one day when messages for support started to arrive.

https://tradeogre.com/exchange/BTC-TRTL


We are currently in the process of registering with other exchanges too.

There are a list of pools on the website turtlecoin.lol . There wasn't a pre-mine, this is just the first time was announced on this forum.

Really easy to see this was a fairly launched coin that simply wasnt announced at the outset here. Doesnt mean there is something fishy going on. Either way, thanks for the post as I was unaware of this coins existence till now.

This page shows you how to mine it: https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin/wiki/How-To-Mine-TurtleCoin-on-Windows

It gives a list of some common pools

Also there is a faucet here: https://faucet.trtl.me/

I've been mining for about three weeks since I heard about it.  Quite a few have been mining for longer than that, its been word of mouth via Reddit and 4chan/biz/.

Last week Kevin Rose interviewed RockSteady and the discord went from maybe 100 users to I think over three thousand in just a few hours.

Last weekend was spectacular with the amount of interest it gained LOL.

No premine, no ICO, no big announcement.

It just started off kind of casually and has grown from there by people telling others about it.

Its got a great future, easy to mine.

Tradeogre.com is the only exchange so far and I have bought some Turtle's with zero issues and the transfer to my wallet was amazingly fast.  I bought 200,000 Turtle coins and they showed up as unconfirmed in my simplewallet in SEVEN seconds and was confirmed in less than two minutes later.


 EDIT: And so far its the most fun coin I have mined, there is a "RainBot" on the discord that shows up sometimes and "rains" free Turtle coins. Its the first discord that I actually wanted to stay and get involved in because the atmosphere there is great .

And this shitcoin has been trading for a while on that dodgy exchange.

1 Trillion coins as well.

And 140,667,505.57 TRTL waiting to be dumped on that scam exchange.

No thanks.

Enjoy conning the noobs.

We understand the concern the delay of this thread has brought up.
As it was correctly stated above, most of the first miners joined because of word of mouth and through threads and posts on other boards.
That same word of mouth lead to someone adding us to TradeOgre without any of the devs explicit knowledge.
As it stands now, and has since the start of it; we are focused on getting us on our first serious exchange by Q2 this year. TradeOgre and Tradesatoshi are things that the community did and asked for themselves.

Please take a chance to read the reasoning behind TurtleCoins supply in this post: https://medium.com/@turtlecoin/one-trillion-turtles-coin-supply-and-unit-economics-5bfbea0aa1f1
One of our core devs gave a good explaination of it as well in Kevin Rose's podcast about TurtleCoin https://blockzero.simplecast.fm/

Feel free to try the community for yourself, a lot of us noobs have learnt a lot about how this tech works and what it can do because of this project.
We are open and encourage healthy discussion about any of your or anyones concerns.

I was not "in the know" when I first heard about it, LOL I found out about from a guy on a gun forum.

Maybe some of you should go on more than just crypto/tech/pc forums, lots of people out there talking about crypto that do not come here.

There was no big announcement nor any kind of marketing at all, just word of mouth.

1 Trillion coins, there are arguments both for and against it but it only goes to two decimal points not 8 like most others.

"And 140,667,505.57 TRTL waiting to be dumped on that scam exchange." Well there are buy orders for 156,057,336.59 TRTL's.  

 I have used Tradeogre a few times and had zero issues and it was added by the community not the dev's.

The 1 Trillion thing isn't really a thing, and it's a lot fewer than most other coins (given our decimal arrangement).

TradeOgre seemed okay the single time i've used it to buy some TRTL.  There is nothing yet to indicate that they are dodgy (people get their coins in/out no problem), just fairly new.

We're not conning anyone, you buy/sell/mine what you like we're not here to tell anyone to do anything.
