question 2 : can someone explain the difference from IRC seeding in comparison with DNS seeding? i saw it merged in GitHub per 15 may 2014 (Enabled DNS seeding by default, added 1 DNS seed)
IRC seeding works by mint client connecting to an IRC channel, sees all online mint clients' addresses, and tries connecting to them randomly. Some peers may reject connections, etc. It takes a while to get an initial connection to the network (especially for new users)

DNS seeding works by mint client resolving a DNS address. DNS query returns a list of 15-20 "best" IP addresses to connect to. Client connects to any of them and it succeeds.

There is a DNS seeder that is running and traversing network all the time. It keeps track of which nodes have the best uptime, their blockchain position, etc. When anyone queries the seeder, it returns a random list of best nodes it knows about.


Thanks for your explanation of DNS seeding. I only had a very sketchy understanding of how it worked until I read your post.

This is interesting. Do you mean that what the mintcoin's peer searching is by connecting the irc channel or by resolving the name cache server?

It was only IRC. It's now both.

Can someone tell me the max stake age?  I don't see it in the OP, thanks.

Yeah, so I have wallet v1.9.1 and it is always open yet I have coins from March 6th and April 14th that still have not staked.  All the other coins are staking fine.  And I'm not a complete moron but I most definitely did not read this entire thread. 

Can someone tell me the max stake age

Bonus: Why do I have coins from 3/6 and 4/14 that haven't staked yet?

try using coin control features to merge several small amounts of coin(Send several small as one big to yourself). But you have to wait another 20 days.

Staking is a stochastic process. It may, it may not. Amount of coins in the transaction increase your chances.

Minimum required time is 20 days, there is no max time to generate a stake, but your interest won't increase after 40 days.

Your amounts in the transaction might be too low, it may be better to merge them into a single bigger transaction (and wait 20 days), or just use them when you're paying something.

Maybe it has to do with size. My smallest mined amount is 1.272328.

Keep in mind that the number of coins in a transaction impact its "weight" (ie. number of entries into the lottery). It's basically like the hash rate, to equate it to something.

Also, you are playing the lottery when staking. I've had transactions on other coins (with 1-day waits) that take weeks to stake and others that stake as soon as they hit the cap. It's all random.

I'd suggest merging the amounts not being staked, though, just to give them more weight/priority.

Yikes, I can honestly say my faith is a bit shaken.  I have never seen a coin rise this far, this fast, build such a large community, and then bam!  Straight down.  It's like someone slammed on the brakes and never let off them.

This is MINT.  This is the coin that started the entire PoS craze!

Oh well, I don't dump, I have been buying a few million here, a few million there, and sending them to my wallet to stake since MINT dropped under 20 satoshis, so I may as well scoop up a few million more and go down with the ship if I must.

Hope we see some life back in good old MINT one of these days.

It didn't help that it was intentionally steamrolled by a jealous dev from the beginning.

Even sadder than where the coin's value sits right now, is the lack of enthusiasm of this community. Lack of activity here will not help. I may start posting random facts or something (kidding, but...) just to keep the thread up front.

Activity folks! Let's not let this slide into obscurity!

I know the android wallet is coming, and that should increase awareness, but... let's have a chat-fest or something!  Grin

Wonder why dev don't put some revenues to stable MINT.
They earn a lot from their exchanges...

mint is in the wild now, it will either survive on it's merits or become worthless if it has no advantages over other cryptos.

You guys should really make a combined effort to get your hash power on MINT and show there is buying power that can reverse your long term down trend. I offer MINT payouts on http://www.cryptoalts.com but mining support has been somewhat non-existent (http://cryptoalts.com/cointable/).

With your volume, something like 0.5-1BTC of buy pressure a day could really make a difference and set off a slow upward motion instead of losing 1 sat per week. I get there's Hashcows and other larger pools, but I always encourage BC miners to stay on BCP or use my pool. Because individually you are weak, but together you can be strong.

So is anything going to be happening that may revive the coin or is it basically dead at this point?
for starters, first POS android client is on its way.

This has been dragging on quite awhile now. You are the second person to attempt this. I'm confident your intentions are good and honorable and you have limitations on your time/resources to complete this task but....

Any way to bring in some help to see this completed sooner rather than later?

It was mentioned by a number of people that having the wallet mint was secondary to just having a mobile wallet.

If an android wallet didn't need the minting function, would it have been completed by now? Just curious.
