Sorry I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to POS, I apologise if these have been asked before,

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me if

1. I need to leave my wallet open in order to get POS
2. What are the differences between leaving your wallet open vs. opening it very rarely

Holding MINT long term so I rarely open my wallet since I do not transact much.

1. Yes

2. Leaving open after 20 days means the coins will try to find a block constantly. Opening rarely allows coins to accumulate coin age and find a block at a later date when opened. Don't wait past 40 days however because they no longer accumulate coin age after this time.

I, too, will be holding my Mintcoins for long-term. I know this coin will have a great future, so there is no way I am letting them go for cheap. 200 satoshis is cheap. 14 satoshis is a steal.

The infrastructure keeps building and the dev continues to build connections and the community expands like no tomorrow. The prices can't fall forever, eventually, and soon, they will rebound and start moving up and up and up again. The prices have been known to skyrocket overnight. I can see many panic buys in the future.

Hi, I've coins from 25 feb in my wallet, this is 21 days ago. I do not see any coins moving to stake. Is this normal? How can I check if everything is ok?
Heya Rikkie,

Feb 25th would make today the 20th day, in my time zone its the 17th of March atm. If that's the case where are too, you might not be eligible until later today (depending on what time of the day you bought it on the 25th). Some other things to consider:

1.   Have you moved any of your coins at that address during those 20 days?
2.   Are you using the newest version of the wallet (v1.5)
3.   Are you leaving the wallet open and unlocked for an extended period of time to allow for minting?


You may have to wait longer than 20 days, there is no guarantee that you will find a PoS block on the 20th day or any given day. The longer you wait and the more coins you have the better your chance of finding a block (analogous to hashpower and time when trying to find a PoW block). This also means that if some of your coins were deposited later than the 20 day old ones, they aren't able to stake yet but as they reach coin age and the stakeable amount increases your likeliness of finding a PoS block will increase. This is my understanding of it, anyways. Somebody else who knows more please chime in.

Prices seem to be stabilizing between 13-14 satoshis. I am expecting stability for awhile, followed by a run up.

Ok. I knew about the conditions you mentioned, so that is ok. So it is still a matter of luck to find a PoS block. So the longer the wallet is up, the sooner it finds the POS block? (With age giving some kind of priority). Is there any way to see the age or which blocks are eligible already? in the debug window for example?

One thing I wasn't aware of . Good to hear about it before that 40 days period.

Sweeet. More and more merchants everyday!
Indeed. We should start measuring how many merchants per day are added. Someone to webscrap the whole thread and do some regexp to check this and get an average value with a nice history curve (hint; merchants are usually announced by mintcointeam)?
I have a website where we can update all the stores and services that accept mint. We can keep updated directories and get the logo next to all the stores so you can easily tell what accepts MINT.

I must admit, we been so busy designing and setting up that I have not had a chance to review MINT lately. If anyone can email me at xxxxxx with a list of all the relevant stores, services, and general info on the coin it would be a big help.
Thanks. I sent you a mail (as well as a request for an adoption curve).

For people wanting to compile their own Linux Mintcoin wallet from the source code (me for one) can you provide a simple walkthrough? Would be a helpful addition to the Mintcoin community I believe, in addition to helping me since I'm a compiling noob.

Ladies ladies, one at a time.

Quote from: deadmanwalking
David, I really don't understand a lot of your posts. You are a member of the Mintcoin team, and it seems very counterproductive to ask about other coins(you've done this several times).

Yesterday, you fumbled some math and said you were disappointed in the amount of Mint you received from the staking process.  Your posts don't exactly inspire confidence in Mintcoin. I'm sorry, but I felt like something needed to be said. Luckily, we have a community with many intelligent members, here is one:

Thanks to Hybridsole over at Reddit for his article:

http://coinjoint.info/mintcoin-maximize-interest-earned-coins/
I guess David Latapie doesn't like being contradicted. People can check my post history. I've been one of this coins biggest supporters.
I'm interested in crypto, not mintcoin alone. FYI I will introduce crypto a to a very large IRL bank in around one week. I am learning everyday and my questions are part of my learning.
I make mistakes? Well, everyone does, that the way we learn. If you believe that a team leader should be perfect, I suggest you try to actually lead a team one day. Then we'll see. I personally do not believe in the "shining leader", the one hiding any mistake lest it would make his teammates afraid. I much prefer the "human leader", full of imperfection with whom teamates may identify themselves.

Regarding your last comment:  I suppose you are saying I do not like to be contradicted because I did not reply sooner to your post? Well, I'll tell you one thing: I'm doing other stuff. Wow, surprised, hey? And I have no problem being contradicted, as long as this is in a constructive way (your post was constructive, so it is okay :-))

I am pretty sure it didn't register that you were on that list. I don't agree with you being on the troll list and I doubt David would.
Sorry about the list. When I suggested an "official maintainer", I was not target any person in the list, it was just an tongue-in-cheek remark.

That was I mistake from my part. I do not approve no condomne any person being on any list. Neither will I ask someone to be added or removed of a list.
