Is there any updates with this coin?

Black halo looked so promsing, but have not heard much since.

Back in the day, yeah.  All the next generation ICO's changed the landscape.  They're getting all the limelight and the money.  

Anyway, dzimbeck, I'm dropping by here to ask what is different about Blackcoin's POS compared NXT's POS.  I'm thinking of investing in Qtum's ICO (I know, I know, I'll be careful), and I see in their ANN thread that they will be using code based on Bitcoin Core 0.13 and use that to create a POS platform based on Blackcoin's POS 3.0.  Is that even possible?  And what's the big deal with BC's POS 3.0?

Thanks.

Bitcoin Core 0.13 is very new, there's no need to go with bleeding edge. Blackcoin has been already moved to bitcoin core 0.12(is running in production and can bee seen in explorers like this one https://chainz.cryptoid.info/blk/#!network .

What do you mean by Blackcoin has already been moved to Bitcoin Core 0.12?  I have no idea what you're talking about, unless you don't too.  Well then, touche!  Cheesy

Quote
There is no risk here, more stability and you won't miss anything they have in 0.13 too.
Core will backport everything to 0.12 (they have been already doing it.. https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/commit/c1b7421781b7a53485c6db4a6005a80e32267c9f )

BC POS 3.0 has to be done correctly, coins that claim to implement it, have done their version of POS 3.0 not the BC one, deviations can be easily seen in their code..

I want answers as to what are the differences in NXT's POS and Blackcoin's POS 3.0 and what makes it special.  I guess I'll have to wait for dzimbeck to get back and explain.

..by the way.. where's the Qtum source? The link they provided doesn't work.


It will be available around March I think.

;P payblk is using 0.12.1 client(https://payblk.blackcoin.io) for example.  It is unsustainable to use 0.13 client, currently around  44 C++ developers alone have participated,
who created 1683 commits, done with POW in mind, impossible to review all their impact on POS.

... I looked at the article about why qtum went to 0.13 base and it doesn't make any sense whatsoever,
http://www.bikaifa.com/qtum-blockchain-ported-pos-3-0-to-bitcoin-core-0-13

valid headers blockchain is in 0.12 too,
https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/0.12/src/rpcblockchain.cpp#L736

1. invalid               This branch contains at least one invalid block
2. headers-only      Not all blocks for this branch are available, but the headers are valid
3. valid-headers     All blocks are available for this branch, but they were never fully validated
4. valid-fork           This branch is not part of the active chain, but is fully validated
5 active                 This is the tip of the active main chain, which is certainly valid

It cannot be used for synchronizing, you can easily end on a fork.
Bitcoin had a scripting language similiar to eth in his early days too, which was exploited and was removed
and Qtum is bringing it back? Oh my..DAO

Forking code is not enough, Bitcoin is full of magic numbers, you have to fork community and all the networks characteristics to have it work properly
and there is no need for that

I don't think that more exchanges can bring better price for Blackcoin needs good PR tactic and Chinese investors. This can be done with forming team who is willing to create and translate (maybe for bounties) articles on multiple languages. People don't even know for Blackhalo. My case.

Thanks.

Hi so the big difference is removing of all coinage and making the stake reward constant instead of based on coinage. This forces people to stay connected. Also there was several security fixes. I wrote a short paper on it but never published it.

Lastly, POS 3 allows for custom staking by putting the data in 6a. So it allows multisignature staking which is used for Halos coldstake. Also this makes it easy to add voting which will be in my next update.

Blackcoin is one of the most forked coins. However the people who do it will still have to code something useful out of it and most projects never move beyond the ANN

Blackhalo has the "cash for coins" template. This is perfect for the Chinese! The initial inspiration for double deposit was to help the Chinese get money in and out of Bitcoin without any risk and no arbiters and no fees.

Good timing but do they know it exists?

This is perfect solution for this situation in China, but why this is not priority of PR team? This is good opportunity for BLACKCOIN now use it wisely. Look how Monero stayed calmed. Because they know what they have and they will rise for sure.

We are actively addressing this now, David Zimbeck and I had a big talk about it already.
