Is this the end for MINT?

I'm here for the long term regardless of price.  New wallets in test mode.  Mint Cards production continues.  We have a birthday coming up also.   Smiley

Nice to see you again Buy$Polar.  Taking so much time out of your days to post about mint shows that you have some sort of a vested interest in our market.  It's exciting seeing coins re-distributed to new users at such a reasonable price.

I really like the Mint Cards but I don't think Mint Cards will get people interested in Mintcoin (again). I sold my Mintcoins the last day it was on Poloniex but I would probably buy back if Mintcoin would have a good community leader again like when Cryptomommy took that position. I really think she did an amazing job to get more people interested in Mintcoin and communicating with the community.

If the new wallet is something special that might get interesting. Would be great to see the community grow again with some more activity and maybe with (someone like) Cryptomommy for all the transparancy and communications.

I have always liked Mintcoin and I will keep watching development from time to time.

We miss cryptomommy also.  But cryptomommy actually left mintcoin on her own and was gracious enough to pass admin privileges down to community members that were still interested in mint.  Her departure was unexpected by other mint contributors yet we've managed to continue in the mint tradition.  I'd argue that we are now more transparent and I believe the data backs this up.  Additionally, I created a history thread which allows users to get a quick overview of our marketplace.  While we don't share as much in regards to ideas that are in development, this is purposeful so we do not generate unwarranted expectations AKA hype.  Short term hype is not sustainable.  Unkept promises are not good business.  The current team is long term, approachable, and working to keep mint solid for years to come.  If you have specific suggestions or questions we'd love to hear them.  Or, you can join us as a mint contributor and see your own ideas put into action.

This is a true community coin.  We're approaching 3 years.  Looking forward to many more.  Smiley

Does anyone have any information on who is behind CoinExchange.io? Seems kind of shady to me because it doesn't have a country or physical address listed.

Additional related info...

Twitter @CoinExchangeio started March 2016

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1532173.0

https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/4afvjw/coinexchangeio_launches_in_beta_trading_mode/

Not sure when but they were added exactly but CoinExchange is now a listed market on coinmarketcap.com

Success means we've got a long road ahead of us.  And either we have the fuel of originality, passion, vision, purpose, and love, or we have the rather lame motivator of money.  Which do you think will last longer in that race? Stamina is utterly important. And stamina is only possible if managed well.  MINT community has this right focus and direction. Confidence thrives on honesty. These days it's hard to earn anyone's attention with bigger bolder ads or splashier banners. Nobody truly cares. Diligence is the way of wealth. Fundamentals for minting Mintcoin is solid. The reality is, the MINT network has been producing tens of thousands of dollars worth of value per year, and still is. The day to day crypto value is always in flux. Prices can easily swing in other directions and I've seen it happen before. Price could go up more or it could go down more too. Mintcoin minting to me is like a business, if every year, I mint more coins and increase my market share then it is only a matter of time until the dilligence pays off. A faithful man dilligent in his business will stand on high, but he who is hasty to be rich will not be innocent from the consequences that come with that. Wealth gotten by honest gain is a gained by production, and producing things. This follows with the natural laws of nature and is typically a slower process that takes time to build. But once you achieve it, it is more stable sustainable, and cannot easily be moved or shaken. Producing MINTs is a production activity. When the markets do move in your favor, you will then see it and understand and you will have so much more and lasting value than others.

Sick of mining?  Start minting!  5% per year!  Mintcoin "MINT"

MintCoin Public TestNet


Greetings and salutations Minters! First off, We would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope that your first month of 2017 has been a good one. Now that the proverbial "dust" from the holidays has settled, we would like to invite anyone and everyone to join us in testing our two upcoming wallet releases (thats right, TWO!)

Table of contents



Upcoming Wallets


As mentioned above, we have TWO upcoming wallet versions that are targeted for testing. Below is a brief overview of each.

MintCoin Wallet v2.0.3
First off, we have a release candidate for v2.0.3 that addresses some minor issues with network sync stalling. We've also cleaned up some of the now defunct UI elements (namely QtWebView) as they were archaic and never really looked quite right. This version will serve as one of, if not THE, last releases along the 2.0.x chain.

The purpose of this release is to serve as the final intermediary between 2.0.x and 2.1.x, with special considerations for how network messages and syncing is handled.

MintCoin Wallet v2.1.0
Secondly, there is our v2.1.0 wallet that has been worked on in length over the past year. While details of exactly what this release would entail have been sparse, mainly due to not wanting to spread unnecessary hype, we have reached the point of inevitability.

This version's primary purpose is to bring the core MINT codebase to a more current state. Its no secret that the existing codebase is sorely outdated, being primarily a fork from Bitcoin 0.7.2 with a little bit of Bitcoin 0.8.0 tossed in here n' there.


TestNet Phases


The public TestNet will consist of two primary phases aimed at assisting in the completion of v2.1.0:

Phase One
Start Date: Feb 2 2017
End Date: TBA
Target Version: 2.0.3

While the MintCoin Team members have already spent time building the TestNet chain during internal testings, we need the public's help to add more stress to the network.

To this end, we will be releasing multi-platform pre-compiled binaries of the v2.0.3-RC that are locked in TestNet mode, they will not connect to the main MintCoin network nor will they interfere with existing wallet data.

Testers are asked to add transaction stress to the network in the form of sending coins amongst one another. See below for information on TestNet coin distribution methods.

Phase Two
Start Date: TBA
End Date: TBA
Target Version: 2.1.0

The second phase of our public test involves monitoring the data upgrade and network syncing process for the v2.1.0 client. The move to a more recent codebase includes a reorganization of the wallet's data directory as well as fundamental changes to how network syncing is handled.

Again, we will be releasing multi-platform pre-compiled binaries of the v2.1.0 test client that are locked in TestNet mode. They will not connect to the main MintCoin network or interfere with existing MainNet wallet data.

For the purpose of this test, testers that participated in phase one will be asked to backup their existing TestNet data directory (without removing/renaming it) and run the v2.1.0 wallet client. Testers that did NOT participate in phase one simply need to run the v2.1.0 wallet client.

At any time during phase two, testers can choose to delete their TestNet data directories to initiate a network sync test. Likewise, testers can choose to restore a backup TestNet data directory from phase one to initiate a data upgrade test.


F.A.Q.


Q: Why are we using a TestNet?
A: Because the main MintCoin network's age. The blockchain is over 3 million blocks long right now, which makes testing critical changes for 2.1.0 very VERY time consuming.

Q: Are there any differences with the TestNet specifications?
A: Yes! For starters, the target spacing is 3 minutes instead of 30 seconds. This basically slows down the chain to allow for more time in evaluating the client's log files. Further, the staking minimum age is only 20 minutes and the maximum age is 60 minutes.

Q: How can I get TestNet coins?
A: TestNet coins can be obtained via PoW mining (`setgenerate true` in the wallet's RPC console) OR by asking one of the MintCoin Team members for an initial supply. Once you have coins in your wallet, Proof-of-stake is used to award coins in the same way that the main MintCoin network does.

Q: Are TestNet coins valid on MainNet and/or exchanges?
A: NO! TestNet coins are exclusive to use on the TestNet only and will not affect the main MintCoin network's supply or distribution. Likewise, exchanges that trade MINT are only trading MainNet coins, attempts to send TestNet coins to an exchange address will fail.

Q: Can I compile my own TestNet wallet client?
A: At the moment, no. During the start of the public TestNet phases, we need to closely monitor the interaction of a couple network variables that could change over time. Having the possibility of these variables on MainNet would be detrimental, so self-compiling is off the table until a later date.

The following resources can be used to contact the MintCoin Team with any questions regarding the TestNet, or any other MintCoin related questions.


TestNet wallet binaries will be posted on Thursday, Feb 2 2017 for our official release.

I am using the windows desktop wallet 2.0.2 and I was just wondering, is there anything that can be done to speed up the loading time when you first launch the client? Trying to load the wallet and it seems to me it is just sitting there. Actually, it even says "done loading" at the bottom but stays on that screen for another 5 minutes or so.

2.0.3 which is being tested loads much faster, additionally 2.1 with header downloads should help as well

Happy 3 years minters!   Smiley

I'll be updating sites and social channels thru the next few days to reflect some of the surprises we're introducing on this glorious day.

Here's a quick run down...

1.  New Mint Cards.  Plural.  That's right.  How could I only release card #2 when we're at 3 years???  With this in mind, cards #2 and #3 will be released together.  Card #2 is the Fork of Aug. 2015.  Card #3 is Big Fern.  New cards will be printed this month and should see a release around March.  I'll add more details about the new cards leading up to their release at mintymintcoin.com/MintCards.html

2.  We're happy to be sponsoring CoinFestUK 2017.  If you attend, there's a good chance you'll receive a complimentary Mint Card.  You can see our sponsorship listed at https://coinfestuk.org/partnerships

3.  A new shop area will be launching soon at mintymintcoin.com accepting MINT exclusively.  New cards will be listed in the store.  I'm also adding a seeds section to the shop where you can find all sorts of various seeds.  Current seeds that will be added to the shop are:  green mint, spearmint, key lime bonsai, dwarf coffee tree, celery, beans, lettuce, broccoli, tomato, cantaloupe, cauliflower, collards, carrots, cabbage, peas, brussel sprouts, cucumber, eggplant, asparagus, melon, beet, kale, onion, pumpkin, arugula, corn, spinach, squash, radish, sunflower, swiss chard, pepper, watermelon, rutabaga, buttercrunch lettuce, parris island romaine lettuce, and red romaine lettuce.  Pricing will be very reasonable.  Additionally, the store will take requests if your looking for particular items.  I expect an early version of the shop to be online sometime this week.

Happy 3rd Birthday Mintcoin!


I'll push out some updated statistics next month, around the date of March 9th, which is the date we hit the 3-year mark of being a pure PoS (Proof of Stake) coin. Remember, before ASICs came out, Mintcoin was launched as PoW (Proof of Work) for several weeks for its initial distribution. Therefore, the best minting statistics I can derive are based on the time after when all the proof of work phase was completed.

Here's to more years to come  Smiley

Why is is there a cap or limit on the number of coins you can send in 1 transaction? Isn't this a bad limitation? Like you can't just move 100m coins or $4000  or more of value without breaking the transaction up into several transactions?
