A bit out of the current coversational path, but I have a PoS question - If I set the affinity of the wallet to a single core, will it effect the minting process, similar to mining with a single core/GPU? I know that minting is quasi-mining, so is it that the more "hash power" the better the chance of minting, or the faster the process occurs? (I know that you eventually get your "interest" anyway - just wondering if there is less chance, or more accurately, less frequent orphans, allowing it to utilize more cores.)
There is a single thread for minting. So it won't matter at all, the other threads (network, UI, etc.) are not cpu intensive.

Regarding its speed (like running that thread on a faster core, or a dedicated core), there is a limited search space for minting. If you have lots and lots of input transactions, you might have your mints faster if it can run faster. But once it exhausts all search space, it won't matter at the end of the day.

Thank you very much for your prompt answer!  Grin

I figured as much (more or less) but I wanted to make sure. Sometimes, it seems to slow my hashrate down a bit, and I wanted to see if setting affinity to one core would help.

Hi, can anybody help me with this problem?

My MintCoin wallet got stuck and wouldn't synchronize anymore. So I saved the wallet.dat elsewhere, deleted the whole of Roaming/MintCoin, downloaded the latest client (1.9.1) and let it synchronize completely. Then I dropped wallet.dat back into Roaming/MintCoin, all my transactions are there but it isn't synchronizing again. I tried the RepairWallet command, but the response is {"wallet check passed" : true}.

How do I regain access to my coins?

Maybe you can try to delete everything in the mintcoin/roaming folder again.
Then put the wallet.dat file in correct map before synchronizing with the blockchain.

The last "BIG NEWS" was the announcement about the Foundation (yawn).

I wouldn't set my hopes too high.

I did indeed pledge 1 million MINT for a working windows wallet earlier, for now though, it seems it would be better to contribute to the online wallet initiative. I'll give 1 million MINT for that, so long these conditions are met:

1. The online wallet supports 2FA i.e. Google Authenticator
2. There is a clear link to an exchange (such as Vault of Satoshi) with clear instructions on how to purchase Mintcoin and send it to your 'account'

So in other words, the main page of the online 'Mintbank' provides some basic information on the coin and steps for getting started.

I do pledge 300k also.

Additional requirements :

The site running it shall be secured from being mtgoxed. It would be best if there were audits like the one Kraken made that all the deposits are actually there. On the monthly basis.

Here you go. Now let's find someone to do it.

thank you very much. As soon as there are ANY volunteers who start this task i will send my mints to the promised account!! Thank you!

You could talk a little bit more about this mintbank when you are ready for sharing details.
If you get me interested, i will also give a million or two.

I'll send the mint to your escrow when someone agrees to do it, and the developers give some hints that they are still active on this coin, as others have mentioned just cleaning up the OP would be a start.

Are you talking about the PoS rate at 20% in the first year compared with 5% in the 4th and subsequent years?

Anyway, I am waiting on the big news from the dev regarding Mintcoin. If it is some epic marketing strategy that could get institutional investors in, that could be big news for Mintcoin. If we could get Mintcoin up to $0.01 or even $0.001, I would be really happy.

If Mintcoin added anonymity and a hidden message system, do you think this will help or is it just too gimmicky? I would really love to see more investors go in with Mintcoin and push the price upwards and onwards.

maybe we should just stop waiting for the devs to do something. i think they want the community to make stuff on their own. it's fine by me. i won't whine about it. i suggest everyone does the same

@all: what do you think the mintcoin online wallet/bank should feature to be successful?

i would really appreciate mintcoin wallets being anonymous. let it be the online switzerland. they have been making zillions chf just by keeping the accounts safe and anonymous. and mintcoin gives a better interest rate. NSA knows how much money you have in your account so maybe it would be nice if mintcoin worked against it.

I know you weren't asking me, but I'll answer anyway lol.

Anonymous wallets seem to be all the rage right now, which is why I think it's gimmicky. I mean unless a person plans to use the coin for a criminal activity, that person would remain anonymous anyway right?

Can someone please explain to me how having a Mint address lets me identify someone? I'm serious, genuinely curious.

Anyway, my take is that anonymity shouldn't be an official wallet feature. Someone could make a version of the one BTC uses I suppose.

Having an adress does not expose you in any way, however, if you know that an adress belongs to a specific person, you can easily track every payment to and from that person via the blockchain. As someone has already stated; it's basically like leaving your checkbook open to the public - for anyone to read.

For regular purchases, like buying a cup of coffe or purchasing a funny hat for your dog, no one will give a shit. It comes down to how Mintcoin should be adopted and used. To the average Joe, Darkcoin probably sounds like scary shit, used for money laundering and buying drugs and weapons.
I'm not certain that I support Mint becoming anonymous. The big problem we've got now is that Mint has no value backing it up. Just take a look at Karma. I think IF Mint should "copy" any other coin, the PoC-model from Karmashares would be the way to go. It basically means setting up an LLC, where anyone can become a stakeholder in the company.

It would reduce the amount of coins in circulation and possibly bring up the value of the coin -depening of the success of the company and it's projects. This however, requires dedication and a lot of support from the community and the developers. I know there are lots of dedicated people out there who could make this happen. This may be the perfect opportunity for making use of the premine.

Two factors to increase the price:
Big investor - as what happened to bitcoin last week.
Low award - at least 3 years.

I have no later power to buy this coin.
