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.

I've never seen/heard any evidence to suggest the original developer is still not behind the coin.

What has lead you to believe otherwise?

I wasn't sure if he/she was or not. I'd hoped so but I don't remember seeing many post lately?

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.

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.

Adding my 0.8Mhash for a while, lets see how it goes:)

No. I haven't done anything specific to add minting function yet. All the changes so far was to make bitcoin android library work for a POS coin without comprimising its security. And now the changes are complete, the library is running in the wild, connected to random nodes on the network (helps finding bugs once in a while)

As a side effect of required changes for POS security verifications, adding staking to the library became very easy -- it wasn't the initial target at all.

Not sure if there's any task I can offload to anyone else at this time. mrqu1cky sent his branding changes for android app, so it made things much easier, a huge thanks. Actually it will probably work just fine now if I just bind the library and app together, and release them. But it'll require a full blockchain download that would last for a couple of hours, so I don't want to release it in this state, it'll scare the users and undermine all the development done so far. There are some changes I want to make on the android app so initial blockchain sync problem gets resolved before release, and one extra feature we have been talking with David Latapie. Then I think it'll be worth the wait

have you guys heard of http://www.quickcoin.co/? it lets you send btc REALLY easily to your facebook friends. much easier than all those tipbots. And they are working on implementing other social networks and whatsapp. I would suggest a bounty for them for a Mintcoin implementation. I would contribute 200k. You think we can get a couple BTC for this project?


this seems overlooked ?

Sounds very encouraging AND near completion. That's good news. And a big thanks for your efforts.

I view a wallet much the same as a railroad or freeway. They allow for the easy movement of people. A mobile wallet allows for the easy movement of coin - without the necessity of being near a computer.

Once you can easily share Mintcoin ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, , it gets into more hands, more quickly, MANY MORE. And this velocity becomes rapid (hopefully almost viral!) . With more people becoming part of the network it motivates more people to create more places for people to spend those coins. And the cycle continues...

Anyways, enough of my rant, looking forward to having the wallet on my phone and tablet!

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?
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.

"interest won't increase after 40 days"

Thanks,  that is exactly what I was looking for, I merged the transactions since they were too old.

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

What do you mean steamrolled by a jealous dev? Interested since I've been in it from day 1.
See this and ten or fifteen that follow:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=450381.msg6380779#msg6380779



Can someone give me the tl;dr version?
And what was the original devs name on here?

Mintcoin has a good future, just look at it long term.
Now there are 20% coins generated on a yearly base, in three years this will be only 5%.
What do you think that will do with the price  Wink
Anyway, I will not sell untill we reached the 5% , then we will see...


yes
We should stick to it
It is always a holdouts of the game

not everyone has trading accounts bei mintpal AND cryptsy. but the whole selling at those prices is either just desperation or manipulation. i think it's just the reaction to the rising price of btc.

Nice to see the community still active,

Looking forward what the mintcoin fund, world's first legally-registered NGO for a crypto will achieve. I've donated some mint to the fund and to the redwood project.

Keep going and let's get back to the 10+ sat!

We work together

So this so-called "IconicExpert" is the one supposedly driving the price of MINT down?  Was he the MINT dev?  This is all confusing.

Thanks for the cheap MINT.

some guys have released an android wallet for blackcoin. it has some bugs and flaws but still it is working. maybe you could take a look or contact him? maybe it can accelerate the project. http://www.reddit.com/r/blackcoin/comments/26gwe8/android_wallet_development_test/

further guys at fluttercoin are working on an android wallet with PoS and PoT features integrated. If someone knows of others PoS coins with android wallet in development, please reply.
