this is already happening a lot.

hackability and exploitability of any coin is bad.

thats why something new, radical, will be invented one day to replace this all.

bank goverments can steal your money with taxes fees and you can do anything about it
 with crypto you are free from banks and governments.
Where moeny are there allways will be problems becouse of people greed and other factors.
You wont run away from it unless you will be homeless ^^

Welcome to POS only guys Smiley

That doesnt mean that, mint will keep Hybryd!

read:

http://www.netcoin.io/wiki/Algorithms_for_PoS_Voters_to_Assess_the_Validity_of_PoW_Blocks

We are changing cutoff of blocks that attack, but this parametter need to be adjusted for the network size.

I doesnt need a FORK!!!

Clean solution from DEVS!
what do you mean? the code diff seemed to me like mint will become pure PoS after block 220000.

Update on the potential security issues mentioned earlier.

As a cautionary measure and since MINT does not really need PoW, we have decided to get rid of the PoW. We don't want to take any security risk.
And since our ego is less important than your hard earned money, we won't have any problem to be thankful to another coin dev if it appears he has helped to increase MintCoin's security.

For now, a new wallet is available and this is a mandatory update!
https://mega.co.nz/#!YI4DETrC!0Cy_PFqWkLF52Ic_Hoo-5v_oyUGWa2R4dcIvlX1S2H0

Please notify every people you know about this update!

What's new?
(1) latest checkpoints
(2) fixed wallet getbalance issue (thanks paspi)
(3) remove pow generation after block 220000

From what I can see, all they managed to do is slow the network down for a while. And at great expense, by renting a large amount of hashpower and using timestamp tricks.  Seems to me all that is able to prove is that with enough hashpower one is able to make the network lag for a while.

How can you see that? So the team are releasing new wallets for nothing? So there is no fork here?

can blackcoin say the same? time will tell
Sure it proved ^^ few times...
-timebomb attack solved
-After some bcmutipool Developer left there was many FUDs after that BC rebuilded it position and got new pool dev team...
-After minig part no many gave BC chance to go up...
-CR exchange problems and FUDs on BC dev + death wishes...
there was many drama points of BC history bro...price ofcourse drooped but not for long Tongue


Told OP it was a bad idea, was ignored by OP in the Blackcoin thread. If you don't understand the code you're modifying, don't muck with it.

These attacks are not applicable to BlackCoin. Guess why.

My guess is that you modified the trust weighting for PoS blocks so that PoW block or that you manipulated timestamping variability, neither of which are great solutions in the distributed system you're playing with.

It looks like you tried to fix the stake modifier with a hardfork and then broke it in the process, too:
https://github.com/rat4/blackcoin/commit/47d2eec662b738b39cdb45f3ef6f72a13b929268#diff-25d902c24283ab8cfbac54dfa101ad31
https://github.com/rat4/blackcoin/commit/9dea231970c5c73dd6b7e3d0d20210233574a179#diff-25d902c24283ab8cfbac54dfa101ad31

Others vulnerabilities exist and you still refuse to address them (the "nothing at stake" fork, stake modifier manipulation).

Zero difficulty PoW is open door and cannot be trusted. One of possible fixes is to disable PoW.
So it looks like Mint joined true POS system ^^ and applied rat4 easy fix.
