Hi! I'm introducing Riecoin.

This is a new coin with proof of work based on prime numbers. Riecoin is forked directly from Bitcoin 0.8.4 EDIT: I'll be including changes from 0.8.5 and is not related to primecoin. I've been working for some time now on a prime number proof-of-work coin. While I knew that the user primecoin was taken on github, its launch took me as a surprise while my work was still not finished. Luckily primecoin's approach is different to riecoin's (I don't use Cunningham chains), and I think riecoin has some good advantages so I kept going with the experiment.
It will have some ltc-like parameters: 2.5mins per block starting with 50 coins per block.

I'm a software developer but not a designer, so I'm starting a logo contest. The coin is named after Bernhard Riemann, whose work on prime numbers was revolutionary. I'll do a fair launch without premine or instamine, so I cannot set a big bounty for this contest, all I can promise is your name and contact info of your desire in the about dialog and/or the splash screen of the QT wallet (I'll choose the winner), and the first block I mine (that's 50 RIC).

Since Riemann is already on the coin's name, I don't feel it's necessary to have his face on the logo. I thought it could contain a lower-case Greek letter zeta with 1 or 2 bars (like $ is an S with a bar) as an homage to the Riemann zeta function, but I'm open to whatever looks good. EDIT: since zetacoin already uses the zeta letter, If you decide to use it I suggest you do it in a subtle way, ie don't make it the main feature of the logo.
Another cool drawing that could be used for inspiration can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Zeta_polar.svg you can see it in a more gentle color on the cover of this book: http://www.amazon.com/Prime-Obsession-Bernhard-Greatest-Mathematics/dp/0309085497/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=&qid=
I like minimalistic designs, but do whatever you like, I'm open to any suggestion.

I need the logo, a .png file for the splash screen (480x320), and the icons in different sizes/resolutions as in bitcoin. If you could provide icons in both .ico and Mac's .icns format it would be awesome. Don't worry if you can't, I can convert the files.
It would be nice to have a different set of images and icons with different colors or something for testnet.
I hope you like the concept, let the contest begin! I'll give it one week, starting now.

Cheers,
Gatra

hope this is what was meant by the greek letter Zeta

sorry but no
that is the capital Z, but Riemann zeta function is lower-case zeta. Like the one (sadly) used in zetacoin https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=267545.0

I'd try a non-round shape to avoid confusion with zetacoin. Also a vague reminder of how the zeta function may look like.





Anyone is welcome to improve on this and submit as theirs.

FYI, there's already a coin called Zeta coin that uses Zeta as its logo.

Thank you all for your interest and your submissions.
Since Zetacoin already uses the lower-case zeta, I'd rather you avoid using that letter, or use it in a more subtle way, I edited the OP to include this.
Sorry I didn't realize this before... I liked ilostcoins' squared versions though...  let's see where this goes, I'm surprised by how fast the first designs were posted!

sharky444: I plan to release one or two weeks after this contest is finished, and I'll use this forum for announcement (a few days before release, on a new thread and this thread too) and main communication channel. Additionally I might announce release date on other forums too in order to reach more people.

Regards,
gatra

I'm interested to see what your final implementation will be and will be watching this thread.
Any indication as to when this coin will be launched?

hopefully in 2-3 weeks, client is working in linux/windows, but I have a lot of work and there's so much to do!
p2pool, block explorer, gpu miner, mac client, setup a faucet, etc, etc... I'll probably release even if I don't have all of these...

let's bump this so people see it and work on logos during the weekend...

I'll write some keywords and concepts related to the coin so they can serve as inspiration for designers: coin, Riemann, Riemann zeta function, prime, constellations, alt, freedom, open source, money, math, solid, strong, new
