Let me add another “thank you” to Brian.

I’ve seen a lot of really positive tweets about Murraycoin recently, especially in the days since the conference.

This one’s a good sign, offering to do a Q&A on their blog:

https://twitter.com/CheapAir/status/520267169255280640

And there have been plenty more about MRY in general.

I also really look forward to that new website launching, ideally to keep this momentum going.

Exciting times for Murraycoin!

Very exciting! Bill Murray + blockchain technology is like cats + the internet.
In other words, an unstoppable combo! Smiley

Sweeeeet!!! Love this!

On a related subject, litmus tests have revealed that Bill Murray is neither an acid nor a base... he's just a bad-ass.  Cool

I spoke via email with CoinTelegraph... they'll be adding MRY to their "coin gallery" & probably doing an article about MRY.

I composed this as a PR piece, let me know what you guys think:

Quote
Since its inception and steady rise in popularity, the digital currency Bitcoin has attracted interest from people in all walks of life. In particular, software developers – inspired by Bitcoin’s breakthrough “blockchain” technology and open source nature – have created countless programs and platforms directly related to the currency’s use and propagation. Alongside this new ecosystem of Bitcoin development there has also been substantial growth in the domain of Bitcoin alternatives or “altcoins.” Dogecoin, an altcoin inspired by an internet meme, quickly grew in popularity amongst digital currency enthusiasts after its December 2013 release. But little attention was paid to Murraycoin, a new blockchain-based currency released in late January of this year.

Murraycoin promised to be the first “real celebrity coin” by featuring the name and likeness of American comedic actor and cultural icon Bill Murray. The website -- which features a Murraycoin donation fund purportedly to be donated to The Murray Bros Foundation -- states its goals as follows: “to raise money for charity, educate the population on the use and advantages of cryptocurrency, and to have fun.” However, the website also claims that the project “is not currently affiliated with or endorsed by Bill Murray.”

Murraycoin’s release came in the wake of Coinye, a digital currency inspired by Kanye West which was quickly issued a ceast-and-desist order from West’s attorney. This along with the absence of Bill Murray’s endorsement may help to explain why Murraycoin has not garnered press coverage or gained legitimacy amongst most Bitcoin and altcoin fans. However, this does not mean that its development team or its small band of followers have given up.

Murraycoin’s lead developer, software engineer Brock Holzer, claims that the project indeed has permission from the St. Vincent star. “We have Bill Murray's indifference but we're working on getting him directly involved,” he explains. “Our top concern [with Murraycoin] was ensuring the legal aspects were covered and we have satisfied that requirement.”

Bill Murray, notorious for being difficult to reach, was not available for comment on the digital currency paying tribute to him.

Holzer and the Murraycoin team were in attendance for Murray’s annual charity golf tournament in March but unfortunately did not get a chance to speak with the iconic actor in person to discuss the coin’s potential. Since then, they have been working on features to make Murraycoin accessible to everybody, including an application for mobile devices as well as “physical wallets” that make coins transferable via QR codes.

Like Bitcoin, Murraycoin’s software is open source so anyone with coding expertise can contribute to the project. Murraycoin can currently be “mined” with a computer’s graphical processing hardware or purchased with Bitcoin at the currency exchange Cryptsy.

Despite not getting official backing from Bill Murray yet, Holzer is confident about the future of his digital currency project. “There will not be a problem [with Murraycoin]. Our only concern is improving this coin. Murraycoin is the perfect addition to Bill Murray's legacy as both an entertainer and humanitarian.”

Thanks, amigo!

And for those who missed it (I didn't notice until this morning, so maybe it's brand new), Murraycoin is now trading against Ripple on Cryptsy.

Brain, I’m seeing more great murraycoin tweets on twitter. Thank you.

Sons_of_Crypto thank you for the information.

I really hope the new website launches soon. Reading back in this thread you’d think it would.

I’ve spent more time following another coin where the developers have delivered nothing, so I am very frustrated. I really want to see developers follow through on their claims.

So far, I've seen the Coin Front and Cheap Air tweet at Murraycoin to get in touch. Maybe the cryptocurrency community at large is finally ready to embrace MRY? Smiley

Also, hate being a beggar but the Vegas trip left me pretty broke (I only spent $2 on gambling, honestly! And it was at the Ghostbusters slot machine, of course) so if anyone can tip me or loan me some BTC, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you Murray much.

By the way, Reddit seems to be a good source of traffic to that BuzzFeed post (according to my analytics), so if you could go upvote the link on Reddit I'd definitely appreciate it!

Hi All!

Yesterday I finally decided to do some Murraycoin. My PC is on at home everyday and just made sense to do. So I followed a step by step from the following thread:
http://www.reddit.com/r/murraycoin/comments/1x5ct1/so_how_do_i_mine_this/

THis is what I have done:
Downloaded Pooler-CPUMiner (I used IE becuase there was no security issues Smiley http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpuminer/files/pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2-win64.zip)

Setup an account on fusionhash.com for Murraycoin and made a worker of x

The a made a Bat file (as recommeneded from the thread) with the following: "C:\cpuminer\minerd.exe" --url=stratum+tcp://sfo.fusionhash.com:3334 --userpass=USERNAME.x:x

I have now ran the bat and left it running and its saying stuff like:

[2014-10-21 11:46:01] accepted: 0/76 (0.00%), 34.46 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:03] thread 2: 292428 hashes, 5.64 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:03] accepted: 0/77 (0.00%), 35.18 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:20] thread 5: 333036 hashes, 5.43 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:21] thread 0: 344520 hashes, 5.72 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:25] thread 4: 139236 hashes, 5.75 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:26] accepted: 0/78 (0.00%), 34.87 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:37] thread 0: 91764 hashes, 5.75 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:38] accepted: 0/79 (0.00%), 34.89 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:38] thread 1: 370992 hashes, 5.99 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:49] Stratum detected new block [2014-10-21 11:46:49] thread 3: 279336 hashes, 5.80 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:49] thread 0: 66288 hashes, 5.85 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:49] thread 2: 209484 hashes, 4.58 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:49] thread 1: 66168 hashes, 6.18 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:49] thread 5: 162864 hashes, 5.77 khash/s [2014-10-21 11:46:49] thread 4: 140412 hashes, 6.01 khash/s

I assume this is working?  However looking at the fusionhash site, apprently I have done nothing and after a few mins no active workers?  Do you know if this is the right setup as Im completely new to this :/


From here, how do I set this up to my Murraycoin Wallet (downloaded from https://www.murraycoin.org/)?

Sorry for all the questions, I just want to make sure it all setup correctly Smiley

I haven't mined any since the fork and switch to Scrypt-2048, but is it possible you need to be using different mining software than what's in that reddit post?

Basically, Scrypt-2048 is a different algorithm than litecoin, so it needs different software. At the moment murraycoin can be mined with the same software as vertcoin.

I looked here:

https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/3431-murraycoin-mry-information/

And in the first post there are links to CPU miners and source code that seem to be up to date.

Perhaps that would get you mining?
