Will the SpectreCoin holders receive your coin?

I'm glad that you decided to improve SpectreCoin, as I am an investor. I think your project can achieve success.

Why do you insist on forking a shitcoin?

Spectrecoin is not a shitcoin. It is a project with low resources, like many other projects in this size range. The technology is good, the team is motivated. I'm sure Spectrecoin will not stay this small forever. So as XSPEC has a bright future, it also needs a wallet that gives freedom to the users. It's just a matter of principle. If Spectrecoin wants to fork to integrate fees into the protocol, we will maintain the current protocol. It depends on what the Spectrecoin team is doing mainly.

If there is a fork, your wallet.dat will be valid on both chains and you can spend funds on both chains independently from then.

There have also been discussions about a possible blockchain fork. If the Spectrecoin team decides to implement a hardfork to enforce development fees via the protocol, the Wisp Project will NOT support that fork, meaning that Wisp and Spectrecoin would split into two independent projects, where Wisp will maintain the original protocol. The ticker for our side of the fork will be [WISP] then. More information will be added as things progress. Since this forum is about altcoins, this thread will remain a "PRE-ANN" until a blockchain fork happens.

As things are standing at the moment, Spectrecoin seems to be planning to do a hardfork indeed, and introduce a development fee of 1/6 of all staking rewards.

For more info, see: https://news.spectreproject.io/stealth-staking/

The update to Spectre v2 is mandatory. This means that you must update to v2 to be able to stake or conduct transaction on the Spectre network after a certain date to be set. All previous versions of the wallet will be rejected by the network after this date. We will announce the exact date when the new wallet is ready to download from GitHub. In addition, we will implement a mechanism know as “replay protection” to prevent any transactions from being valid on the old blockchain and vice versa. This implementation is with Wisp in mind and will allow the Wisp community to continue working on the old version of the blockchain and develop a separate coin with their own design philosophy and goals. If the Wisp community takes this opportunity it will result in users being able to claim 1:1 balance of XSPEC / Wisp at the time when the update is activated.

Thanks @mandica and the Spectrecoin team for implementing replay protection in order to guarantee a smooth fork into two separate projects!  Cool  We are currently working together with the Spectrecoin developers and make sure that everything is correct, and to avoid disruptions between Spectre and Wisp.

(P.S. This is my eleven-hundredth post, yay  Smiley )

There is a new release of SpectreCoin on Github that implements the fork: https://github.com/spectrecoin/spectre/releases/tag/v2.0.3.0

The Wisp Project will NOT follow this fork. This means that the fork will happen on 21/08/2018, 22:00 GMT. Nodes that don't update their wallet to Spectre V2 will be running on the Wisp chain automatically. Note that you will be able to run both in parallel in the future, as soon as we have released a standalone Wisp wallet. Your balance at the time of the fork will be available on both chains.

Feel free to ask any further questions regarding the fork here.  Smiley Or join our Discord (linked in the first post)

For those of you who don't know what a hardfork is, here is a gentle introduction:

How does a blockchain work? -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSo_EIwHSd4
What is a hard fork? -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCo6yyutYAM

Wisp will keep the original protocol, and Spectrecoin will make a fork. Conversely, Spectrecoin will keep the original name (Spectrecoin), and Wisp will be named Wisp. They will be two independent coins, and the Spectrecoin balances will be copied so your funds are independently spendable on both chains.

Thanks @Luc for pointing this out.  Smiley

Unfortunately most of the founders of this project seem to be gone by now - VVC and HippiePyro (the two initiators) are gone, JBG is inactive. I am not the leader of this project, I'm just maintaining the ANN thread for the community.

If you are interested in making Wisp reality, please join our Discord NOW and figure out a way together how to continue. We are urgently looking for devs to release our own wallet so that it does not conflict with the new Spectrecoin wallet!

Update: The XSPEC hardfork has happened smoothly. Now Wisp is running on the old Spectrecoin chain, every user who uses a Spectrecoin wallet before version 2.0 (1.4 and older) uses the chain that will be branded as WISP. An official announcement for this coin will follow after a independent Wisp wallet has been created by our volunteer community members.  Cool
