Now that coblee has had a successful launch of Litecoin, wonder what will be the future plans of Fairbrix?  I did try to mine it on a spare PC for an another day but nothing came out. Any decision to support or dump it?

If I recall correctly, coblee has stated he will continue maintaining fairbrix to give it a fair chance.

Besides BTC-E sortakinda Smiley said they will launch FBX and LTC exchanges together, so it would be a shame to dump FBX that close to getting an exchange.

Geist Geld, the experimental cryptocurrency, is ready for yet another SolidCoin collapse Wink

Fairbrix is like Tenebrix in better (no premine).
It has a bit weak hashrate, but it may recover once there is an exchange.
Anyway, you cannot kill a distributed crypto currency as long as there are people willing to mine it.

Looks like there aren't too many people mining fairbrix anymore. From allchains.info Litecoin has 5.69 mhash whereas Fairbrix only has .08 mhash. That's like 1.5% of Litecoin's network. Since interest is so low and the price is really low also, I probably won't spend much time maintaining the fork. If someone wants to take over, I will be happy to transfer the github project over to them.

It is a pity, it looks quite a decent piece of work.  But I guess you will be extremely with Litecoin which is getting really popular.  Hope that someone can pick up Fairbrix from there.

Problem with Fairbrix is risk of being 51% at all times.

Very fragile coin for sure.

I still have like 2k on it.. though i dont plan to do anything with it but store it away.

Mining Both Bitcoin and Litecoin.

No, the correct status is "nearly-GG-level"  Grin

I don't care if people think it is dead or not. I would like to mine it anyway. GG level is fine.

Goldcoin: You'll need to get the client and solo mine it. There are no pools but the difficulty is pretty low.

Maybe it will get a bit more of momentum since Litecoin seems to be getting more and more popular... and the authors credit FBX for the scrypt implementation properly.
