One of the attempts you desribed drops connection after version is sent.

So maybe they decided they don't want to connect to their old version and simply check that the version number is not too low.

So we could try using a higher version number.

That's one possible idea..

The other thing is.. I wonder what "edition" is which shows up with this binary version..

Code:
:~/apps$ ./clients/rucoind-5 getinfo
{
    "version" : 50200,
    "edition" : "2.1-892",
    "balance" : 0.00000000,
    "blocks" : 17423,
    "connections" : 4,
    "proxy" : "",
    "generate" : false,
    "genproclimit" : -1,
    "difficulty" : 1789.00569829,
    "hashespersec" : 0,
    "testnet" : false,
    "keypoololdest" : 1328304975,
    "keypoolsize" : 101,
    "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
    "errors" : ""
}

I hope you have their binaries well sandboxed, remember these are the guys who lied about their code not including any "premined" coins given out and gosh knows what else. No wonder they went proprietary, they probably realised they could modify the alert code to put any kinds of trojans and worms in that they wanted to and send out a trigger for them later once it was on enough machines or they found a customer for such a service...

In other news, I have taken my "PRGcoin" template and made a very new code version of RUCoin in case maybe the code they used to make their binary was recent enough to have the checksums on messages turned on or something like that. No connections so far but its still flipping through address so maybe just hasn't found them hidden among all the actual bitcoin daemons yet.

By the way, is not giving out source code a violation of the BSD license? Maybe they are in violation of that like SolidCoin was?

Not really sandboxed but it can't do much damage if it were bad.. everything can be rebuilt.

I have no idea about licensing... I avoid that kind of stuff.  Its possible that the source is still coming.  Without their forums working it's hard to tell.

Do you mean "edition" rather than "version"? As version numbers don't seem to look like that?

Also, where are you finding it? And is source code available yet?

I have been merged-mining a long long time now but still not one transaction, even an orphan, showing in list transactions.

Well it wouldn't if its just a normal bitcoin minimally hacked to put out the free two million coins in block one and to use the different ports and handshake.

But if that is what they are now using, I guess they just don't want to be merged-mined, which probably severely limits how much mining will ever happen on their chain. Oh well, if they don't want people to get involved thats their choice. Too bad, I was going to set up trading of it on my Open Transactions server but not much point if they are deliberately making it so vulnerable to attack (by discouraging people from mining it).

They updated the page with the link to the source adding a note saying the source code shown is old code but the new code will be added shortly.

That means they're still making changes.  Merged mining could come back..?  We'll have to wait and see.

Someone was asking about them on a couple of other chains' threads so I figured since they seem incapable of using the search function of the forum I'd bring the thread up to the top so they could find it.

Also I am curious if the Ruskies are still running this, have they made any new versions (as old ones dont seem to work) and such.

RuCoin was stupid. Let's premine them for 2 weeks then release the chain to everyone else. LOL!

Two weeks is nothing, bitcoin has been mined for years before most of humanity has even heard of them.

The bigger problem is it has not seemed to work since they "upgraded" it, so no one except maybe a few Russians somewhere have been able to mine it at all.

Also, some coins were totally pre-issued in block one yet have been thriving, it seems more a matter of whether you bother to actually "back" your coin with "reserves" or something. Presumably they never "backed" their coin though so oh well, pretty much worthless probably.

Hmm that is weird, presumably there must be a working version of it someplace then, I wonder where they hide it.
