Just found out about Photon.
What would it take to get on the Coinomi wallet? Couple that with a new website/roadmap - that could really put Photon on the map.
Also, once things get moving, are there any thought about a coin burn?
Just some random thoughts.

time they have backlog and I also need to sort the community out but I have been in contact with Coinomi

working on new revised roadmap and the new draft of the whitepaper is in works but does need to be approved by me and Cinnamon *with me taking charge and sorting the mess out a solid release is more likely than before

No coin burn is planned ever, I can create a burn address if people want to throw coins into oblivion out of your own pockets  Roll Eyes

Edit:
Burn Address: Photon (PHO): BaBurnXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXYHr33S

**warning you cannot get your coins back if you send to that address no one has the keys

The Beginning and the end of Photon and the blake256 coins

This explanation is important for everyone who lost money and for everyone who thinks about investing in a coin of bluedragon. Read this to know that they lied

People want me silenced because i know the lies they are spreading
The problem with photon started because bluedragon and 2 others shared lies. I will show the lies of the big dev of the Blake256 coin.

I will explain what is going on and why it is recently not going well with photon.

It al started around February. Juan and i founded this coin.

We always meditate before we take big choices like choosing a coin
It was a dead coin. No whitepaper, no website, no roadmap, no real community no real future because both devs are not working hard to make photon a great coin. They are working with 6 coins so for them it was very difficult to manage all coins.

Around the 24th of December 2017 photon had grown a lot. I invested 30 dollar and that was almost 3000 dollar by then. Because of this I said thanks to the devs : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.440 Post 460.

We couldn't find any reason for the growing.
On the 26th od December juan asked the first time to help the devs. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.480  post 484

We contacted Cinnamon Carter on twitter to asked for an ok or green light and if she wanted to join us.
https://twitter.com/PhotonCoin/status/944972260108111872
https://twitter.com/PhotonCoin/status/945811197634412544

She told us she was too shy to join a telegram group. So we tried our best without her.

In three days we had around 500 people in our telegram group. It was chaotic. There where a lot of people that wanted to help us with the website, the new logo and marketing. We started a management team where people talk together how to make photon better.

Everyone can join our management chat now, to read how we did everything.

https://t.me/joinchat/HTiC3k4p0iUokMRA_r5WVA

You will read that there was no mismanage, you will read that me, photon Antonio, and photon juan never played the bosses. We told everyone from the beginning that we can’t make a great website, no whitepaper, no roadmap, so there's almost nothing we can do for photon. The only thing we did a lot was talking with people on the main chat and also with bluedragon. It was our idea to make a telegram group that would bring people together that could work for us, like slaves.


Bleudragon also told it is a opensource project, where everyone can contribute to make photon big
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.500 post 509


on the 28th of december we made our first announcement. That was about the airdrop:
 
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.500 post 519

on the 29th of december we had our second message about what we did

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.520   post 528

Yes, we made a mistake to call us developers but that was because we had a team with developers.
 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.520  post 536

It's better to read the reaction of bluedragon and me after this link. The red lines are written by myself.
Because of this we changed our team name to : Management team of photon.


This was the first time bleudragon started to work against us :

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.540 post 550

This was the first time cinnamon carter tweeted bad about us:

https://twitter.com/PhotonCoin/status/947991562767814656

We were already started because they told everyone it was an open source. It was not possible to stop anymore because people already invested in photon. The community was already + 700 people.
We did our job in the management team and I talked to bluedragon, a lot on bitcoin talk to get his ok/green light. There was not a possibility that they could stop us that time because it was a open source project.


read also this :
 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.560  post 576

On 2 January we saw tweets from Cinnamon carter:
https://twitter.com/PhotonCoin/status/948387244485894145
https://twitter.com/PhotonCoin/status/951673516948180993

After that she tweeted positive about us :
https://twitter.com/PhotonCoin/status/953146879465918464

Bleudragon gives us management team ok/green light on bitointalk. Now it is deleted but I have a print screen.
https://ibb.co/gQSPqc
Read his next messages so you know he gives also his ok/green light : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=478136.560  post 574 - 575 -576  ( I am happy I quote a lot)
Everyone can read after 3 January how bleudragon talked with me without negativity.
The same day he tweeted positive about us: https://twitter.com/BlakeCoin/status/948519080763457537


Juan and me do not have knowledge how to to make a coin big.
We had great team members in our management team that helps us and photon a lot.
Juan and I did almost nothing. We did not management the team because everyone did what they can do.
Making a website, making new logo, making banners, making memes and more. We al did something.

The website was going online with the whitepaper and roadmap.
One of our team members was in direct contact with bleu because (for showing respect to him we wanted his ok/green light) we asked his ok for the whitepaper.
The last day that we needed the whitepaper for our site he told he was ok with it but now he must ask cinnamon for her ok.

The devteam putted the site online with the whitepaper and roadmap without the ok of cinnamon
Bleudragon sended a message to a team member of our team. He was not happy to see the whitepaper online. The team took it offline after that.


The same day 1 / 2  guys ( moreme (moreofthesame) and Bennybitcoiner)  from the management team went to bleudragon and starting spreading lies about our telegram group.
I will show proof why they tried to push juan and me away if bleudragon not would change his direction fast.

Moreme started after that a new telegram for bleudragon and they start spreading lies about photon 19, juan and me
They called me scammer pump and dumper, liar and more
Now they not saying anymore I am a pump and dumper, I am a scammer or  I am a lier because they can see there are a lot of people seeing they are spreading lies to STEAL the first photon community.
I had spoken with a lot of people the first day private. There are still 2k members in photon 19.
There is a reason why there is still not so much people in Blake community even if they used the website link to send people to their community. I am trusted as they see 2k member here.

They never thought about it that they would bring me juan and my family in danger because of there lies.
I lost friends in real life because these lies and I must look out for people that want to “kill”me, juan and my woman. This will be big news in crypto land 😊. People love drama story’s. Very bad for blake256coins…
They thought I was going to let this go.
This is just the beginning. I will share my story on more places. I give bleudragon the time to fix this. I talked maybe total 7 hours with him and I have also proof of that conversation. He told me crazy things…… and he tried to fix this on a crazy way to safe his himself and the blake256 coins…….
I will share everything the next days if he does not fix this fast.

This is a proof that they say that is was not true that we were not authorized to start this telegram group. There are a lot of lies. They will be publiced these next .days
There is a lot of proof in the management chat to see that it is not true what they are spreading about me.

We will continue with Photon and we will do our best to find investors who want to take over this project. Photon WAS a great coin and it will be a great coin again.

That "management team" or the Photon19 "Leadership" has been doing some really questionable/unethical behaviors I was right back in December and although I gave them the benefit of doubt time has proven they are not to be trusted!!!

people can read if they like and make up own mind and if anyone want the pm/dm/messages from me just ask no issues making any of it public as I have not done anything wrong and my 4+ year track record proves more than some new multi account person(s)

They cant be trusted its a FACT as their own actions prove!!!

Proof it! I will proof you lied about this to. The management team is open for everyone also writers SmileySmiley
We did a lot with photon19. A website a roadmap a whitepaper and we brought 2.2k people together.
That was not possible with a wrong leadership.... And you know how?... i did not much in the team,it was moreme and bennybitcoiner.
So give your followers proof before it reaches a great magazine.

Yes you made photon and you made the code. But what you must not bring people's lives in danger by spreading lies.

Photon has now a name because of Photon19.

You told me you still have health issues from that time that they saw you as a scammer because that fake blake256 coin
How you can do the same to me and my family?Huh

I'll give the management team a bit of credit for helping me make a decent return on my mining, It could have been quite a bit bigger if cryptopia didn't suspend ltc trading when they did, but anyone could see that photon was never going to be a big coin.  The sheer volume of coins pretty much made sure of that. 
The whole Blake ecosystem of merge mined coins is pretty interesting to me and some of the in-game transaction concept is pretty interesting as well.  If it's incorporated into the game itself and can be used as a wager between teams it's pretty awesome.  That doesn't change that the coin could never really be valued at more than 1 or 2 sats in the long run because with block rewards as large as they are there is a never ending supply being constantly dumped on exchanges. 
You see it all the time with coins that have a low value and a huge supply where people are coming in and buying a few, trying to create a hype around it to drive up the price and then offloading what they bought.  I guess it can be good because it gives the coin some attention for a period of time, but at the same time it could be bad because after it crashes you end up with a lot of pissed off people either dumping at a loss or forgetting that they have a bunch of coins and they're left with a bad taste in their mouth.

Ok lets pick this apart with some basic logic

  • Quote
    A website

You did not pay Lukas first thing I found out when joined telegram and fabrice who also worked on it did not get any pay too

My Actions = Paid them

Lukas: 5Mil PHO = TXid: 2ab982d2e81d6d99775249e90ae6ab1ae370ea6d5d099a6d745632b28479d143
Fabrice: 1Mil PHO = TXid: 71ef8a4388755d926a1bbe5de5e536c25336202ce6fd2aa30e3cf575c8554eb2
             4Mil PHO = TXid: 562bebdcd913326b5aa0b580254a9e73dfdfae5e827f0efb412f2c114f4d6577 *just so it was fair between the two

why they work with me? because I have not bs them and respect hard work!

  • Quote
    whitepaper

bs this was work by Aaron and I was talking with him myself he is also helping out with new draft too for real community its still a wip and does need to be approved by both me and cinnamon


  • Quote
    roadmap

Incomplete with unrealistic vague goals/timeline

  • Quote
    2.2k people together

oh great but if you not pay people for work you are *Using* then they will leave as they started to do


  • Quote
    i did not much in the team,it was moreme and bennybitcoiner

from the messages you shared *not what I been told*

1. Did not want to pay Joshua for CS:GO server costs or extra work he was out of pocket for
2. you claim not leadership yet both Moreme and Benny reported to you and you offered to pay them 250k euro each for work doing management *again not paid
3. you are leadership one minute(2.2k) then next you are not hmm something does not add or is that just me  Roll Eyes
4. Benny walked out as you had started to act questionable/unethical by accusing them for just telling about bills for actual roll out of servers which you asked for (e.g Joshua) and Moreme was also half way out as could not deal with your issues
5. you admit you really did not do work in your own statement here and people working hard to create a community of 2.2k are Benny+Moreme *ok cool saves me telling people the truth then  Tongue

it could still grow however as marketcap is still very low given the number of coins.
sure, the number of coins will literally double in 4 years, but at 2sat ea, that still brings the marketcap to merely $6 million, or even if the price is 20x at 40sat, that makes it still a reasonable $60 million-$120 million.
comparable to other gaming-related coins. I do suggest finding a way to reduce coin counts in the long run because it really will cap growth if the price ever starts to go up.

but firstly they need to stop the fighting.
argue with each other over the internet all day and nothing good would come of it. Neither side is going to yield and apologize or whatever...settle your differences privately and move-on.
fork the coin if you have to.   

The management team has the group of people necessary to get something done I suggest simply starting your coin or make a deadcoin alive and great again.

A short history of a few things that might fill in afew details of anyone interested:

The idea for merged mining was proposed by Satoshi Nakamoto
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1790.msg28696#msg28696

It was first used with Bitcoin + Namecoin then others (some of which were ‘killed’ ) including ixcoin, iocoun & dev coin. These five were sha2 coins mined with btc as the parent & the other five as aux chains.

In late 2013 BlueDragon launched Blake Coin. At that time other alt coins were basically clones of btc & ltc mostly (or nova coin & ppc). I was mining early and impressed with the specs of Blake 256.

Other algo alt coins start launching. Later it was identified by a few ‘unique’ items in the code they actually ‘copied’ BlakeCoin without credit to BlueDragon. (I am not going to mention names of coins but there were a few & some are still around)

I had a bit of experience at running /cloning/ working on alt coins at that time (those projects of mine are long retired) and BlueDragon and I discussed collaberation on what became Photon. I cloned his code for Blake Coin with a few changes and Photon was launched late Feb 2014. At launch Photon was NOT merge mined and BlueDragon put together the first pool for Photon.

Soon after much testing BlueDragon commited changes to Photon’s code and a hardfork was done to make Photon an aux chain of BlakeCoin using the same concepts that had worked for the sha2 aux chains with btc.

Other members of the Blake256 family were launched successfully and these were merge mined from their launch.

I hope this fills in a few gaps for new people.

I would like to stress that the Blake family of coins did not invent merged mining although we were the first non sha 2
algo to make it work. Merged mining works very well with 8 round blake 256 and in theory many more chains can work meaning we are no where near our limit for future capacity or expansion. 

Myself and many other people have done a lot of work on Photon and the other Children (Umo , B + , Lithium, & Electron) and no coins were premined. Check the exact times of launch and cross match them with the block explorers to verify this for yourself. Coins owned by anyone (including anyone on the development team) were mined or purchased on exchanges. 

The costs and time for running nodes and other things have been paid out of pocket by the other asst. developers like myself. In addition to running nodes Bluedragon has paid the hosting for blakecoin org and all the merged pools vm hosting expenses (at a loss) PLUS run the pools. Pools mine 24/7 so he has not had a day off in 4 years and has certainly the largest out of pocket expenses of any of us. Many volunteers & community members have sponsered Photon & the other coins for various things. I have never paid an exchange or an external block explorer. I am greatful for whoever has done this and to all the exchanges who ever listed photon. I am also greatful to all miners and other community members who have helped promote this family of coins.

I am happy there are new miners and talented new people who contributed a lovely community website

SEE HERE https://www.photoncc.com

I do urge caution with anyone getting over zealous.

For example unless you are coding it and testing it yourself saying Photon has Electrum clients or mobile wallets ready to release next month is just not true. Open source projects mean anyone can make suggestions to the maintainers for changes in the code if they follow the official process or can fork the code and run their own unapproved changes to code that do not violate the license. See here for more information https://opensource.com/resources/what-open-source

Stating there is an ‘airdrop’ {meaning anyone with private keys from a specific blockchain can import them into a client and receive photon after such & such a date} is not true.

I’ve read on Twitter that Photon has been incorperated into CounterStrike & other video games besides Blake Zone (where it would purchase ammo) I have not had a chance to test these out yet but believe them to be true.

Finally there are no/zero plans to change any original specs of Photon.

This includes changing how many coins were mined, how many will be mined, the proof of work algo ect.
I am not concerned if asic technology mines blake 256 family coins. Since we had FPGA at the lauch of Blake Coin this was planned for years ago. I have yet to see a proof of stake system that works without centralized checkpointing and can solve the Byzantine Generals problem. Even if such a system existed (and I highly doubt it will) Photon will remain proof of work.

Please consider carefully what I’ve written here. Understand I have worked with Bluedragon a long time and could not have done this without his work & support (although he could have done this without me) .  I hope moving ahead we can release things first that exist and talk about things in development that are real. If any of you have ever tried to convert something like say loaf wallet mobile wallet for litecoin for ios or android to work with a project like this I think you will understand the challenges are more than ‘just’ a mastery of swift or java.

I hope this clears a few things up. If you are still interested in the project awesome and if not I understand.
Thanks to all.

Definitely interested.  Thanks for the great synopsis cinnamon and also bluedragon for the point by point clarification.  Pretty obvious neither of these guys has any interest in the short term take the money and run scenario all to prevalent in the crypto scene today.  Though I'm not privy to the gaming limited beta @ present, I'm picking up a few more pho's as I can from their slow and steady perspective.

Keep up the good work yall.

A short history of a few things that might fill in afew details of anyone interested:

The idea for merged mining was proposed by Satoshi Nakamoto
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1790.msg28696#msg28696

It was first used with Bitcoin + Namecoin then others (some of which were ‘killed’ ) including ixcoin, iocoun & dev coin. These five were sha2 coins mined with btc as the parent & the other five as aux chains.

In late 2013 BlueDragon launched Blake Coin. At that time other alt coins were basically clones of btc & ltc mostly (or nova coin & ppc). I was mining early and impressed with the specs of Blake 256.

Other algo alt coins start launching. Later it was identified by a few ‘unique’ items in the code they actually ‘copied’ BlakeCoin without credit to BlueDragon. (I am not going to mention names of coins but there were a few & some are still around)

I had a bit of experience at running /cloning/ working on alt coins at that time (those projects of mine are long retired) and BlueDragon and I discussed collaberation on what became Photon. I cloned his code for Blake Coin with a few changes and Photon was launched late Feb 2014. At launch Photon was NOT merge mined and BlueDragon put together the first pool for Photon.

Soon after much testing BlueDragon commited changes to Photon’s code and a hardfork was done to make Photon an aux chain of BlakeCoin using the same concepts that had worked for the sha2 aux chains with btc.

Other members of the Blake256 family were launched successfully and these were merge mined from their launch.

I hope this fills in a few gaps for new people.

I would like to stress that the Blake family of coins did not invent merged mining although we were the first non sha 2
algo to make it work. Merged mining works very well with 8 round blake 256 and in theory many more chains can work meaning we are no where near our limit for future capacity or expansion.

Just got my full node up and running under an old win10 laptop.  Blockchain downloaded in full in < 6 hours (~1.10 GB in size).  Transfers into and out of wallet are quick as lightnin.

lol..photon lightning network..yeah that's it!!

Hmm. So I'm gonna bring up the elephant in the room about this coin. Anyone else notice the massive sell orders at 2 sats? Wouldn't it be nice for everyone who put a sell order at 2 sats to maybe, you know, remove it... lol.

I bought this coin, just because my scanner got me in. but now,... what a shame, so many people involved, for so many years, and  not able to resolve quietly internal problems.
At least, do it for the sake of the community, guys. I'm out till I see some progress

wish good luck and patience for everyone, hold on, be brave, and learn from these mistakes  Cheesy

Being late to the pho party I have to respectfully disagree with this one Smiley

Snatchin up coins as quick as I can JIC pho ever does push beyond 2 sat's.  at 2 satoshi's, assuming all coins where in circulation, pho would be looking at ~1,800BTC market cap (pretty respectable imho).  Anybody have any mining distribution timeline curve fancy chart kinda thing available for pho?
