Announcing the new Bitcoin Rebooted coin



Coin Details

Ticker: BOOT
Algorithm: SHA256
Block Reward: 50 BOOT
Block Time: 150 Seconds
Block Maturity: 100 Blocks
PoW Reward: 50 BOOT
Difficulty Retargeting: New Fuzzy Effect Wave DAA
Premine: 200K BOOT (about a weeks worth)
Total Supply: 268,234,500 BOOT (50 years of mining)
Website: https//www.bitcoin-rebooted.xyz
Hashtag: #GettheBOOT

This is a "soft launch".  We have been internally developing and testing since July of 2018.  The coins tests out.  The DAA has been extensively tested (over a 1000 hours).  We have had the website publicly available for close to a month.  An explorer went online two weeks ago.  We have an experimental yiimp pool that appears to be up and running, but no promises there - pool operation is not our forte, others are coming online to do that job right.

So what is Bitcoin Rebooted?  Well, you can read an overview (or everything you would ever want to know about it in the coin details tab) at:  https://www.bitcoin-rebooted.xyz

Here is a bit more detail:

This is NOT a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain, this is a fork of the Bitcoin sourcecode and utilizes the SHA256 hash algorithm so can be ASIC mined

The blockchain has been restarted with a new genesis key, magic numbers, etc.  

Block reward is 50 coins per block, which decreases by 1 coin per year per block.  So 50 years of mining, and no major penalty if your late to the game (at least for the next dozen or two years)

Block time target is 2.5 minutes, just like Litecoin.  Minimum blocktime is 2 seconds, 20 seconds if the block is empty (to discourage mining of such)

Block maximum size is 16mb

The DAA is all new code, dubbed "Fuzzy Effect Wave" and has a few special features, like "cliff" detection to prevent super long blocks that impact many alt-coins when profit-switching pools leave

Segwit support has been removed from the original source tree - we don't believe in it and feel it punishes miners via reduced transaction fees

There has been no ICO, there will be no airdrops, there have been no special partners that benefited early

The blockchain was mined by the developers for the first week in order to establish some checkpoint records to help reduce the chance of early forking.  Announcements then went out via another popular forum and shortly thereafter a pool came online:

https://cryptocurrencytalk.com/topic/113782-ann-bitcoin-rebooted/
https://twitter.com/BRebooted/status/1059168270597718016
http://pool.bitcoin-rebooted.xyz

What do we consider a "soft launch"?  Announcing there first to get a few folks to help confirm everything was stable for a broader audience.  Now announcing here for a wider audience.   Once a broader infrastructure is in place (bigger network, more pools, hopefully an exchange or two) we will publicize the coin more via other outlets.   Of course, the source code is available and a Windows wallet installation program is available - just hop over to the coin website for those.   e..g.  Not a lot of fan-fare, just public awareness.  We are not in this as a "get rich quick" scheme, but rather for the long haul.  If this takes a year or three, so be it.

link to github? I dont see a source posted here or on the site.
the downloads page link gives to a 404 error... Though I wouldnt ever recommend anyone to blindly download from a random website either.

https://bitbucket.org/ccgllc/Bitcoin-Rebooted

Added to the announcement, thanks.

FYI:  Source link is also on the Download page on the coins website - but your point about random websites is 100% valid.

Download link fixed.

Been mining with a GekkoScience 2Pac for a couple days.

OP contributed to one-minute fork and new DAA for BitcoinCore $BTCC.
He’s the real deal.

block 7000!!!! you could have easily mined on testnet for testing and done a reboot. but 7K X 50 coins = 35000 coins as premine!

You slipped a digit... closer to 200,000 coins.  The coin was announced around block 3900 and mined by non-developers shortly thereafter.  Check the Twitter posts for a history.  With a maximum coin supply of 268,234,500 coins, that represents less than 1/10th of 1% of the coin supply.

As stated on the website, we did in fact spend months (over 1000 hours) testing on -testnet prior to starting mining on Mainnet.  But there is no way to generate valid checkpoint records on mainnet via testnet.  This was a small compromise to insure some chain stability.

Added to the Pools page on the website.  Thank you.

Thanks for adding me and thanks for launching the coin, I really like this bit of your announcement:

Segwit support has been removed from the original source tree - we don't believe in it and feel it punishes miners via reduced transaction fees

My (somewhat uneducated) understanding of Bitcoin with block halving and transaction fees is that as the block reward to miners drops the transaction fees were meant to supplement/reward miners instead, a transition from block rewards paying for securing the network to transaction fees supporting the network. You obviously already know this but would just like to put it out there for people who do not realize this.

Its also really nice to see another coin with some technical expertise behind it instead of the 101 clones where the 'devs' don't understand the code they are deploying.

We appreciate your comments!  Thank you.  The website FAQ talks about this a bit more, but we have been in the Bitcoin ecosystem since early 2014.  There is a lot to learn, and we don't claim to know it all by any means - but we felt we had enough expertise to get this effort underway.

Oh, your "somewhat uneducated" comment is dead on.

Great launch!

Worked out a few link kinks and have at least (2) public pools now.  Great conversation over on Discord https://discord.gg/srXW6fJ.  Appears we have about a PH of mining currently going on.   (And that is NOT us propping up the coins, we only have about 22Th pointed at it).

Please keep the questions coming and help get the word out.

Expect a minor release bump soon to add another checkpoint record.

Just released version 0.2.4.1.  It is just a maintenance release with two features:  Another checkpoint record was added, and a patch to the source that allows for building with older versions of Libevent.

In other news: As of this writing we have about 2.5 PH of miners working on Bitcoin Rebooted, we represent about 1% of that. 
 
Its maybe a minor milestone, but the number of coins in circulation are now more than double what was pre-mined prior to announcing on November 4th.

Please follow us on Twitter, the publicity helps.  https://twitter.com/BRebooted

Thanks.  Taking with a newer exchange right now about getting listed.  Hopefully good news soon on that front.
