Mops.
I am out of mops.
I have catcoins.
Can I get a mop?

I don't know about mops, but a port of Coinffeine to support Catcoin would be pretty interesting.

I'd like to know what a distributed market thinks of the price of the two active catcoin blockchains are.

Anyone want to try this?

Or maybe we need one of these
that includes an integrated 2-A2 chip catcoin miner?

Mostly, I think we need etblvu1 to come back and have a more rational discussion about minimum block times and a time-based reward. (such that after 15 minutes have elapsed, the block reward starts increasing).

The other technical argument that needs argued is whether the 'maximum block size' that Bitcoin has is the right approach, because it hard-limits the transactions per day. Would it be better to allow blocks to occur faster, on average, once they exceed a certain size threshhold, to try to clear network backlogs?

This might be a lot easier to manage with a time-based reward, such that blocks start out with only transaction fees from the minimum block time to the 'target' time, and then after 10 minutes, the block reward starts increasing until a block is found.

Next question: should the difficulty adjustment then be calculated on both the reward (seignorage + fees) to the miners, *and* the target block time? Or should it be based on the block size of the last set of blocks as well as the time?

Instead of trying to combine two different adjustments in clever ways, we should be trying to minimize the amount of code it takes to calculate the adjustment so it is easy to read, and easy to predict how it will behave.

Note to anyone who's still listening: The 'new new (9.2.0)' catcoin thread is heavily moderated/censored and any discussion of why it was a botched upgrade will get your posts deleted. See the previously mentioned catcoin uncensored thread for details.

To summarize: the new 9.2.0 release removed the 30 second block time limit immediately, before the advertised fork block (fork4block) in the code.  This 'bug' resulted in a miner finding and posting block 44227 with a timestamp *before* the previous block. This caused an immediate fork between the two codebases because the original 9.1.1 release rejected that block, while the new code accepted it.


My suggestion to the 'new new' thread is open an discussion on if you think it's ethical to continue to mine on top of the negative timestamp block and screw over anyone who did not upgrade immediately, or do you want to screw over anyone who's been mining on the early-fork chain because the topic poster has deleted any posts mentioning the problem?

Attentions all miners! If you continue mining on pools with 9.2.0 version, and Cryptsy not upgrade wallet to new version, you can lost yours CATs.
I am waiting upgrade Cryptobuck on Cryptsy to new version almost 1 year, with my 20% of all BUK.
