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

Were all of the exchanges and merchants notified about the hard fork?  It would be bad PR if a bunch of people lost coins.

I want the wallet that mints an wanna full open source.

We are the good people, its know on history that we were first.

Let also ask if any BC developer wanna work together with us in this project.

That will be neat and will be beneficcial for both coins.

And restore the peace with actions.

I'd tend to agree. Please not this is my own opinion, not an official opinion.

We are up to it. The Chinese exchanges are difficult to reach though. If one our Chinese community member could do it, that would be great. (That doesn't mean we won't contact them ourselves)

mburks, I hope I wasn't the one who threw a turd in the pool. What do you envision for sensible?

One thought, just put my 75,000 as a bonus for a private Mintcoin wallet.

It is telling though, that people are willing to only contribute to an open source app. Not saying they are bad or wrong or right. Just noting that It sort of proves the point that an open source Mintcoin app will almost immediately be co-opted for other coins. I would prefer avoiding that situation and promoting only Mintcoin.

Ladies ladies, one at a time.

I believe the app should be exclusive to MINT and allow minting on a Android device to be eligible for the bounty

why pay a bounty for an open source development that can be used by competitors? If someone wants to develop a generic PoS wallet that's fine but it is of no particular benefit or interest to me

So I would never be a party to that type of agreement

Agreed, I'm on the same page as you. Mint only, or I won't contribute to a bounty for it.

Okay, that's understandable. I guess my point was if we could get all the communities to chip in then they wouldn't be benefiting from it unfairly.

Dont get why u want private wallet when most of thr work is done open source? Is the qt client closed source? So why the andriod wallet? Its not going to be that much different from original.

It is perfectly sensible to keep it closed source from an investor's perspective, at least for long enough to let the exclusivity pump the volume and price floor up a few notches. Release open source only after initial breaking in and high-potential period, and then release it open source while it would still help crypto-coin value increase in general by increasing the usability factor.

I am flabbergasted nobody has been developing an I-phone app, considering APPLE will eventually have to join the club or get left in the dust.

I believe someone previously mentioned having minting capability only when the phone is plugged in. That would be amazing, especially if it played a nice attractive sound every-time you minted.

Seems like,

If people want a fully functional android wallet soon and for it to be released before other coins release one, it will probably need to be based on what is already open-source. If that is the case, then other people will be free to adapt it to their coins right away.

If people want a fully functional android wallet that is at least partially or temporarily exclusive to MintCoin, it will probably need to be built (more) from scratch and this may compromise being able to release it soon/first.

Just my 2 cents on the Android wallet.

If we want a closed-source wallet it will mean building it from scratch.
- increases the amount of effort required
- introduces higher probability of bugs
- increases the development, testing and refinement time
- will be orders of magnitude more expensive

I see why people want closed source on this, but it makes the project exponentially harder, longer and more costly.

Is there not a huge PR advantage to being known as the first community to create a PoS wallet?

It's a tough decision...

The problem with Apple's Walled Garden concept is that they absolutely require full control over all revenue streams generated through their apps and hardware*. This is exactly the same reason why Flash will never be allowed on Apple devices. Apple will never allow altcoins or Bitcoins through its services without opening a floodgate for other entrepreneurs.

*Read: If they can't make money off it they won't allow it

why donate to toward a generic wallet that is going to be built first and used by everyone anyway?

the thing that makes the androids wallet something someone would pay for is if it were exclusive to MINT and you could use a tablet or mobile device to mint

otherwise it's a generic wallet app I'd probably never use

the reason to have a mint exclusive app that mints is that it make MINT something special and therefore more valuable, that's what I would be interested in paying to develop
