How long do you have to leave your mintcoin wallet open to earn stakes?
I havnt earned any stake on my mintcoins yet, but ive only just updated my wallet.
I dont leave my computer on 24/7 so whats the best thing to do?

How long have your coins aged for?
I usually just my wallet open for an hour or two a day.


OK, well i havnt been doing that, and im unsure if the older client was doing that anyway.
Do i have to have it open for 20 days in a row, or just hold the coins for 20 days?

The best way to ensure you mint new coins, is once the coins you have reach the 20 day mark, leave your wallet open for 2 to 4 hours a day until they do mint. Then once they reach the next 20 days, do the same thing. There is no guarantee that they will mint exactly at 20 days, but they will mint.

When an android app does arrive, my son would love it if you used this image he and I worked on this evening. I am trying to get him interested in Crypto's so he will learn about our monetary system and new innovations, and so he will naturally integrate them with his interest in digital imaging as he gets older. He's only 11, but boy is he smart! I figure by the time he is in high school, he will be using these things on his phone, so he might as well be one of the ones making the images for them.

I took the picture and told him what I generally wanted, he did the rest.  Cheesy




I told him if people like his works, I will get a wallet address set up for him so he can get tips. Once he realizes he can spend that on stuff, he will be hooked.  Grin

That's a great picture!!

Thats interesting ive just looked and about 178 mint was minted, yet ive never even had the client running for the month.

Mintcoin 1.7 for Ubuntu is available! To upgrade existing installation:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mintcoind mintcoin-qt

For new installation:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:keremhd/mintcoin-unofficial
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mintcoind mintcoin-qt




Update on the potential security issues mentioned earlier.

As a cautionary measure and since MINT does not really need PoW, we have decided to get rid of the PoW. We don't want to take any security risk.
And since our ego is less important than your hard earned money, we won't have any problem to be thankful to another coin dev if it appears he has helped to increase MintCoin's security.

For now, a new wallet is available and this is a mandatory update!
https://mega.co.nz/#!YI4DETrC!0Cy_PFqWkLF52Ic_Hoo-5v_oyUGWa2R4dcIvlX1S2H0

Please notify every people you know about this update!

What's new?
(1) latest checkpoints
(2) fixed wallet getbalance issue (thanks paspi)
(3) remove pow generation after block 220000

I see that some people insist that there should be a closed source android wallet. What they miss is, crypto is hard, very hard to get things right. If you can trust your money on a brand new released coin's desktop wallet (2-3 months and a few developers is nothing for critical software development), that's because it's founded on an open source codebase that has been reviewed and fixed by lots of people over the years. Lots of eyes detected lots of security flaws and then they are fixed by crypto coin community. And they continue reviewing and fixing it, albeit slowly now as the software matured (That slowdown is what makes altcoins drifting from original sources trustable)

If anyone comes up with a closed source android wallet written from scratch, I won't trust my funds in it, let alone a bounty. And I'll advise anyone against so. Who will guarantee that the brand-new wallet won't lose my money? A single dev who got a one-time bounty (3-4-5-10 btc, whatever) and then moved on with his life? No way.

Development of new crypto software requires a dev community who are continuously active. It's not 1-2 or 3 people's job, nor a one-time job. Free software provides that community. Those reviewers and contributers over the years are the reason that we can trust our money to a software.

We're not talking about a 1-2 dollar worth disposable iphone game here, it's about trusting one's investment to a piece of software.


An open source free software PoW+PoS wallet which is founded on current PoW android wallet will benefit MINT. And it will benefit MINT's investors because the software will be reviewed. Even if there are only a few developers in mint community, investors can be assured that other altcoin devs would be actively reviewing it and fixing it for their own needs. And even if there are only a few active developers left in MINT, as long as they follow what other altcoins fix in the wallet, MINT will benefit from those fixes.

It is security vs. branding. I want this coin to live, that's why I prefer security.

This notice is from the DEV introduction page of bitcoinj, the bitcoin android wallet library which doge/etc android wallets are built on:

Quote
This API is not like other libraries. A Bitcoin library allows you to directly handle money, possibly large sums of other people's money. It is important to understand the following. After completing this tutorial you are NOT qualified to write production applications. You will have a flavor of how to write applications, but Bitcoin is a subtle and complex system.

FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE DOING CAN CAUSE MONEY TO BE STOLEN OR PERMANENTLY DESTROYED

These documents will help you learn how to use bitcoinj, but they are not yet completely comprehensive. If you are ever in any doubt at all, or just want some code review, please ask on our mailing list or on our forum for advice and a second opinion. Also, make sure you keep up with the latest versions of the software. Bug fixes happen all the time and any one of them could be required for the safety of your wallet. It's important that you frequently rebase onto new versions of the library, even though bitcoinj does not have a stable API.

I personally would support an open source free software wallet, which is available to all PoS coins, which will be guaranteed to be backed by communities of all PoS coins. That will make the wallet code trustable, and frequently updated. But to pay someone for a one-time developed closed source software, I believe it's a waste of resources.

Mintcoin is actually listed on quite a few exchanges so there is more volume than what you're referring too. I don't believe cryptorush crashed or was dishonest what they were is angry about something that occured but it's ok for different people to have different beliefs. What is important is that as people in our two communities try our best to get along.

You joking?

Cryptorush should have been angry with themselves for their own
incompetence and not blame/threaten anyone else!

And in the end turns out they were insolvent, and yet they still
released shares for sale!

Dishonest is being kind...

why donate to toward a generic wallet that is going to be built first and used by everyone anyway?

the thing that makes the androids wallet something someone would pay for is if it were exclusive to MINT and you could use a tablet or mobile device to mint

otherwise it's a generic wallet app I'd probably never use

the reason to have a mint exclusive app that mints is that it make MINT something special and therefore more valuable, that's what I would be interested in paying to develop




Sure get prepared to pay 50 btc for a wallet from scratch..

U get what u pay for... Android wallet is gpl so I dont even know if you can close it since your using open source base. Alot of people still havent clued in to the open source movement.. which allowed you to even have your mintcoin.. now you want your pie and eat it too.

I think it should be open source. I will donate for that, or a private one, or any one. Or what about the possibility of cross-community funding? Considering this could be a big deal and benefit all cryptos in general. It's really kind of silly to debate until we figure out what the state is of the one that is already being worked on (is it open source or not) and how far along it is.
Well reasoned thinking here. I'll adjust and contribute if it is closed and/or if it is open source BUT crowdsourced with Mint and Black and other POS coin support. I just don't like the idea of free riders from other coins. paspi makes good points and clearly knows his ish. I can't argue on those technial points.

All you need to do is close old mint wallet and run new mint wallet. No backups are necessary. It might be a good idea to backup wallet.dat before you run the new exe but you will only need this backup if something goes terribly wrong.
