Syscoin- Changing the way people do business.

I have been sick the past week (but so has BTC!) and it has clearly had an impact on MEOW value. The reality of the situation is that KittehCoin is now a global currency, people around the world are buying and selling the coin and thus questions and concerns about it materialize 24/7. I have a job, as do others, a fiance (soon to be wife later this year) and I know others are in similar situations.

I don't want my getting sick for a week to impact the value of MEOW so dramatically. Additionally, I want more people to be involved at a leadership level to know what I know, and be able to provide additional perspective as to the direction of KittehCoin and how best to pivot or react to the market and the community. KittehCoin is in a huge position to grow, we are on a lot of exchanges and we have the support of the community, we need to keep this momentum going and its hard to do with our current leadership structure.

Benefits of a decentralized leadership:
  • Leadership is available to the community much more readily, because there are more people involved
  • Leadership being spread across time zones allows for 24/7 response
  • Having more people in the know about plans can change plans, alter roadmap- more ideas are always better than one single point of vision
  • Availability, if one of us has to take off for a bit, there is still a core leadership group to keep things rollin in kittehcoin land
  • Democratic decisions at the highest level


In addition to forming a leadership board, I want to split the dev team into those who spend a real large amount of time on kittehcoin/IRC into the real "dev team" and the others can become "contributors". Having this "contributor" title allows us to onboard additional help for MEOW without actually increasing the core team size to the point where it becomes unmanageable.

I'm also setting up a task management system. It has internal chat, and tons of other features that will help keep us on track and keep everyone informed. I think this will be very good for KittehCoin in the long run.

Sorry I've been away, but I'm back! and I'm making changes to avoid the negative impacts my absence had from occurring again. There are so many things we have in the works that it is unfair for my absence to halt everything so dramatically.

We are determining who will be on the leadership board right now and I will have an announcement coming out this week listing the members of the board after we have our first meeting. I will also share some news on what we are working on at that time after I have had a chance to sync the rest of the board on these items. I am striving for international representation on the board, or at the very least representation from both sides of the pond so the Kitteh questions and development can keep rolling around the clock.

If you have any questions please post them here and not in other kittehcoin threads. In the future we may move to posting our news updates on our official tumblr rather than on BCT in markdown format. We'd then post an announcement thread as usual on BCT with a link to the blog post rather than the full post content. We'd include key excerpts on BCT, but we'd like to centralize KittehCoin news and improve its formatting for all devices on which it may be viewed.

TL;DR;
- I was sick for the last week, leading to the "quiet period"
- I am reorganizing leadership and the team as a whole to be more a "board of directors" leadership structure rather than a single point of leadership
- We will have different tiers of developer-engagement allowing "contributors" to participate in the task management system and get additional help from other kitteh-contributors looking to help out.
- May be centralizing news announcements to our new official tumblr

Thanks for the update Dano! Cheesy

As for Kitteh v.s Kitten -- Kitteh is a longstanding internet meme.. As for the folks who believe that a meme is some universally identifiable image with particular words slapped on top, well, you're wrong  Tongue

Why Kitteh and not Kitten?

"Kitteh" plays on the meme so we can have some fun with the coin (a rare chance to mix "work" with play)- its really not even just the kitteh meme we love all kitteh/cat memes in general. It started as just fun meme stuff, then it got a lil popular.

Now we're doing more serious crypto stuff like looking at how we can merge aspects of namecoin into litecoin (within kittehcoin), as well as develop a better diff algo than KGW... in parallel with the meme-fun stuff Cool

We also have a number of other pools just waiting for miners on http://kittehcoin.info. We also have a strong and growing P2Pool. Find those blocks before the reward halving kicks in at block 200k!

only 4MH/s on p2pool right now. could use more
if you wish to mine in p2pool its better to start you own node using the code at
https://github.com/kittehcoin/p2pool

just make sure your wallet is on latest version and on the correct fork
i added another GPU and now mining with 2.1MH
even if its one of the most non-profitable coin to mine at the moment..

I still think (as i wrote before) that miners left and no new miners are joining - because the block reward halved already
should have keep it 1k-100k until block 200k (as the original specs)

why would anyone mine when getting so small amount of coins ?

miners = network security = getting payed with coins.
no coins... no miners

no wonder all miners have left to the next-big-thing-coin thing Tongue

it will become more profitable. only 50K more blocks until it halves to 1k-25K. price will recover!

Got a fair few MEOWs, been buying and mining for a while now.

Still think that of all these altcoins getting spewed out on an hourly basis, this one has the best dev team as far as I can see. Done some great work to get the coin back on track, also got some great features coming up I believe.
