c'mon guys. Do we need more FUD?
There is 2 "versions" of solidcoin and one additional he his writing now.
correct me if I am wrong but...
#1 Version 1... - one he originally released and then foobared in version 1.04
#2 Version 1.04 has a good brother
. It is a upgraded 1.03 and is identical to 1.04 but without the stupid "license" ReaSolid added to hes version of 1.04.
So, if this version #2 (Bro Solidcoin) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=41345.0
(excluding RealSolid bullshit home made license) gets fixed against the "time travel" etc attacks, we have a working SolidCoin client that uses the currently operating network.
Upcoming fork (1.10?) has a ass load (or not) of unknown hacks and rules to invalidate all the coin generated after the block 35250. If someone has seen the source code, please comment.
SolidCoin will be shutting down the network at block 35250 (currently 35045 at time of statement). The reason for this shutdown is due to the potential for hackers to gain 51% of the mining power and destroy the credibility of SolidCoin and its users investments using known flaws in Bitcoin's protocol.
SolidCoin will be restarting at some point in the future (most likely within 2 weeks) with a new protocol, all coin owners up to block 35250 will still have their coins when SolidCoin restarts. There will be no loss of coins to these owners.
As you all probably all know by now, at this point in time, shutting down the network at block 35250 as failed and people are still mining happily at 35-70 Gh and do not give a flying fuck what RealSolid/CoinHunter wants or demands. Open up a new exchange at we are back at 300+GH in no time.
If i understand it correctly, original network/chain can not be shut down unless it gets attacked and or everybody downloads the new solidcoin version (not available at the moment)
I'll take the better and more stable client with new cool features any time but ONLY if the code is reviewed by multiple independent programmers and cleaned up from all the hidden and possibly dangerous crap.
Downloading a binary client from RealSolid? ... Thank you, but no!
