The currency



The Cypherfunks (FUNK) is also a cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin or Dogecoin). It's an scrypt coin with the following features:

Block time of 2 minutes: retargeted with Dr. Kimoto's Gravity Well.

About 50 billion (49 275 000 000) will be mined in 4 years, whereafter there will be a constant increase in supply of: 1 314 000 000 per year. The first 15 blocks have a smaller reward of 5000 to allow the network to adjust.

1st year: 100 000 per block.
2nd year: 50 000 per block.
3rd year: 25 000 per block.
4th year: 12 500 per block.
5th year onwards: 5 000 per block.

NO pre-mine. This is a community currency!

Pools

Sample Cypherfunk.conf

This is used if you want to solo-mine or run the daemon yourself. Sample:

Code:
listen=1
server=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=cypherfunk
rpcpassword=feelthefunk
rpcport=23666
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

[If you don't add rpcallowip to localhost (if you are a solo miner), then it is HIGHLY recommended you change user and password, otherwise someone can connect to your node if the port is open for inbound connections.]

Hello Cypherfunks! You have a nice idea here guys.

A few suggestions:
- Make it a N-factor scrypt (ASIC resistant). This will attract more people and keep the ASICS out (this is really important).
- Why not promoting it as a decentralized currency for digital distribution of music. This way the musicians can benefit from the crypto-currency revolution directly. FUNKS can be used to promote, sponsor, advertise .etc the new artists
- In general you could make it about all the bedroom producers and garage acts not only your band Smiley and assist the music community to become decentralized too. 

Again a great idea !

It's important to note that "The Cypherfunks" is not MY band. Everyone IS the band. Just like cryptocurrencies allow free reign to affiliation, so will "The Cypherfunks": but for music. Also, you don't have to release music under "The Cypherfunks" to reap benefits from it, just like musicians currently ask for Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin donations. Smiley

Sounds interesting.  How will it help someone who actually wants to sell their music or mixes (not interested in playing live)?  If the Cypherfunks stuff is to be  "reproduced, reproduced, shared, reshared, sampled, resampled in all forms and manner" then this seems to indicate the music is completely free.  Or would there be some limitations to sampling or something so that unique creations can be sellable?

I think the idea of an open source band is amazing.

People all over the world will be like 'I saw the Cypherfunks play live last night,' but none of them will be talking about a band made up of the same people!

Imagine how flooded YouTube is going to be with music by the Cypherfunks (because anyone can use the name)!

Sounds chaotic, confusing, and wonderful. The cryptocurrency would be like icing on the cake.

If it is released under proper creative commons licencing (which should be the default for any of the songs under "The Cypherfunks"), then anyone will be to freely do with the music whatever they want (including selling it). The cryptocurrency part of the collective means that it doesn't actually matter if someone does this for their own personal gain, because if more people get involved with "The Cypherfunks", the more valuable everyone's FUNK becomes. In this case, releasing it for free is anyway better as it means the footprint of "The Cypherfunks" increases.

Nailed it! With each new song that gets released, the bigger and more entrenched the network becomes. And as you say, it's going to be a wonderfully chaotic experiment! Already have more songs lined up. The band's been working hard.

I'm prepping everything for launch today (updating all the seed nodes and wallets to correct versions). Will try and get an IRC channel also going before launch.

Then tomorrow morning, it's all just about generating the genesis blocks and uploading the wallets! Let the #FUNK begin.
