Yeah, in general I wouldn't be opposed to moving away from mining equipment; it's going away from the existing pool (prohashing) more disappointing. I haven't had a chance to be watching the Nyanchain lately; is it running a bit better? I do think "Nyancoins PoW" is going to keep going. Someday I think it would be cool to have a "Nyancoins PoS" forked from it, and perhaps we could even update the difficulty algorithm to work a bit better, but I do think we ultimately just need good baseline mining equipment support to get Nyancoins PoW to work well, no difficulty algorithm can compensate for that.



I re-read your post and start to believe that a PoW/PoS hybrid should now be suitable for Nyan. It won't disappoint the existing pool, while can keep the blockchain running by PoS after each PoW hit-and-run.

The blockchain has been stable lately and has not had any hit-and-run attacks that I have noticed. I am still not interested in championing such a change and do not think it would be uncontroversial. In particular because PoS usually expects to get a reward as well, and I'm not going to fuck with the 337 million coin cap; that's a core feature. I am not planning any hard forks of any kind until NYAN3, which I expect no earlier than 2016Q4, and I don't plan anything controversial for that (any convenience changes we need, and hopefully something like a 2MB block size limit just to show we can, even though I've never seen a full block on the Nyanchain).


I am not suggesting to change it now either. I just believe PoW/PoS hybrid should be a good choice when we need to change.

Perhaps we can reduce PoW reward and provide a relatively small PoS reward to keep the coin cap.

There is no hit-and-run lately because Nyan is not so hot right now. But it doesn't mean we should not prevent hit-and-run from happening in the future.

BTW, Cryptsy has opened up Nyancoin for withdrawals.

My last WD came from these two addresses:

https://nyan.space/address/KEhaSorUVpadKeg5zw7mUm7uEJZCyYfvTV           current balance of 6900.11755453 NYAN
https://nyan.space/address/KNyR5nsqcqi2DnFysFv3ma523BFCJWMjDf            current balance of 3504.43178481 NYAN

They may have more but I would suggest people WD ASAP before these balances get depleted.

This one MIGHT also be Cryptsys but I'm not sure..cant see the balance because it has too many records to display on the block explorer.

Any update about the new wallet?

Hey, sorry, I'm basically never on here. I strongly recommend anyone interested in Nyancoin to follow https://www.reddit.com/r/nyancoins rather than this thread.

But, no, unfortunately, I've made no new progress on the wallet. I've been wanting to get a new laptop for a build computer to be able to do the gitian build, and my life afk and personal finances have been far too screwed up to do that yet, sorry.

At this point, I have no idea when I might have it out, but I'll be happy if I can do it by the end of the summer. I think I'm finally on a decent path afk, but we'll see where the next couple of months take me.

Overall, I've done rather poorly on the revival: I bid up way too high in the beginning, and it's crashed down to basically the same price it had started at, as I've been unable to keep putting as much in as I did at the start (originally was working on a software job, had lots of extra money; haven't been able to put anything in at all in the last few months or so). Obviously this new client release has taken far longer than I wanted. I was hoping to be onto mobile clients by this point and planning for NYAN3. And the community is quite tiny.

However, we have gotten a few good people over in /r/nyancoins, and they've made meaningful contributions (KojoSlayer runs dice and faucet; jwflame runs a great intro site; vmp32k runs explorer), and we've had a few cryptocurrency developers reading it from time to time. That's been good, and I hope we'll keep that base going forward. I'm still in this for the long haul.

I'm very sorry I haven't made more progress or been better about updating here. But we're still alive and flying.

Probably should remove the "now listed on cryptsy" from the topic title  Grin

Also, every exchange in the OP is dead, only trading on cryptopia now. Does anyone even have access to the thread?

Peg! Good to see you around these parts!

As jwinterm guessed, none of the current players have access to modify the top of this thread. At the same time, I have felt constrained by the expectation that a new ANN should only be created for new releases, and I didn't want a vaporware or hype thread. So I had been planning to create a new thread once I finally got NYAN2 built.

But as jwinterm also stated: there's actually a new build now!! This is entirely due to /u/vmp32k and /u/stellarseahorses on Reddit. I actually came to this thread to make a post mentioning it. I'm glad that jwinterm got the link here already; thanks!

It's being considered a public beta for now, and I've been too busy / lazy to test it out or do code review myself yet. But I absolutely will get to that, and I believe that within the month we should be ready to consider it an official release: the first new release of the revival. This is the biggest thing to have happened for Nyancoin during this revival, and I'm incredibly proud to have Nekonauts like this active in the community.

I plan on making a new ANN once we declare the release officially ready unless /u/vmp32k is interested in maintaining the thread. I'm also going to suggest rebranding to NYAN2 rather than the current NYAN 1.3.0 designation being used, because I think the critical vulnerability fix (same forking vulnerability Peercoin hit months ago; we've been aware but hadn't gotten an updated client to address it yet) merits it, as well as reflection of the change from the original development team.

I need to study the solution in detail, but I think this will not changing the mining behavior (presumed to be on Linux 64-bit) but instead will just correct the client (meaning Windows or Linux 32-bit nodes) vulnerability to having a different interpretation of the validity of the particular edge case transaction than the miners. This means that it will be a required update for "clients" as defined but that we should be able to expect it to be recommended but less critical for pools and the exchange.

I'm staying pretty busy with work, and that's hopefully going to be continuing, but I'm going to be trying to help get to the point where we're confident enough to call this the official release and be able to finally be on a modern client and not have a known critical vulnerability (the difficulty function is annoying and not as good as I would like for dealing with hit-and-run, but that's going to take a hard fork and is not critical; we'll address that along with expanding the block size hard cap just to show we can in NYAN3, tentatively scheduled for release in early 2017 and activation sometime in 2017).

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!

Sounds like a plan! Would be great to have a non-zombie Ann thread going.
