I say we just call it X-11.  Sounds like a top secret project or something.  Or we could just call it CPUcoin  Cheesy

Great idea! You win the 1000XCO prize. I bought X11coin.com and I'll point everything over later. What's your X-11 address?

Isn't this even worse in terms of google ability? X11 is the name for OSX & Linux's window management system.  Give a go searching for X11 in google, you'll see what i mean.  Why use the same number? might as well say X-12 or X13 at least.


Correct! Have a look at the wikipedia

This is going to be far more expensive to operate than GPU mining. Some of these guys are getting 10,000KH/s + I'm running a few diffe[Suspicious link removed] instances and an 8 CPU is only doing 200KH/s which is around $160 a month. To get 10,000KH/s it would seem that it would cost like $8000 a month (50x$160) which doesn't make much sense economically. I understand the reasoning for going with the algo you went with but this only benefits people with large pockets in the same way the ASIC does so it kind of defeats the purpose lol. If you went with something that was GPU friendly it would benefit the coin as well as the network.

We're decided we're going to be changing the name of XCoin to something else. It's already kind of confusing to search for XCoin on Google and we want to differentiate ourselves from the other company using the name.

We thought it might be fun to actually let the community suggest the future name for XCoin. Any ideas? 
...

Some ideas of my own:

Xeleven (It's still sort of X11, but nicely pronouncable and well googlable) - Xeleven Coin
Xelf (variation of the same in German. Not so nice, but a bit shorter)

The algorithm is very GPU friendly, it's just no one has done the work to implement it -- or they haven't told us and are reaping the rewards. X11 consists of the 11 SHA3 finalists, of which all are hardware optimized. So it'll be very efficient on that front.

From now on XCoin is officially known as DarkCoin (DRK)! I think it reflects the projects goals perfectly and I guess the other project is dead. I'll change over everything in a bit.

Why the change? There's actually another company named XCoin (xcoin.com), that was a payment network and had awful reputation. So we settled on DarkCoin because it represents the goals of the project pretty well (Anonymous block transactions + encrypted transaction network)

Why not just DARK or DRK?  Cool
EDIT: well DCO could turn into "d-coin" in the mouths of the laymen, so that's nice as well.

DRK is fine with me. I guess that makes more sense. DRK it is.

Should have allowed one name per person. Now people have submitted 5-10 names per post which leaves not many names left for anyone else to suggest. There are only so many coin names related to anonymous and X.

Alright, everything has been changed over to darkcoin! The client source/images have been updated and can be found at:

https://github.com/evan82/darkcoin

Everything is compatible, just make sure to copy over your wallet from ~/.xcoin to ~/.darkcoin, and remember the clients will change from xcoin-qt to darkcoin-qt.

Thanks

Do we need to recompile the mac version? I'm assuming you changed the address generation to dark with D now?

Yeah, I'll reach out to the mac+windows guys to get those recompiled.

Oddly enough, that beginning X isn't just decorative, it's actually part of the address, so it's not possible to change what the address starts with after everyone has wallets.

Let's see. I'm the main programmer, then we have a Linux admin, a windows guy and a mac guy. Plus there's 3 other pool operators in the mix.

So the normal minerd won't work because of the x11?

Can this be mined in unix?

Edit: Ah looks like you can build it, giving that a try.

Easy Tutorial

1 - Log into root

2 - Create a swap file

sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16
sudo mkswap /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile

3 - Download minerd, configure and compile

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev zip
sudo apt-get install automake
sudo wget https://github.com/ig0tik3d/xcoin-cpuminer_1.1/archive/master.zip
sudo unzip 34a84a753c5b86614bd05fb7c34a801885d23f71.zip
cd xcoin-cpuminer_1.1-34a84a753c5b86614bd05fb7c34a801885d23f71
chmod 755 ./autogen.sh
./autogen.sh
sudo CFLAGS="-O3 -msse2" ./configure
sudo make
sudo strip minerd

4 - Signup at a pool

./minerd -a X11 -o stratum+tcp://pool.darkcoin.io:3333 -u username.workername -p password

5 - You should see it detect threads and then you're good to go
