Digital Freedom | Decentralised Future

Pigeoncoin pioneered the X16S (shuffle) algorithm and now uses a related algorithm X21S. Pigeoncoin aims to complete an altruistic goal, to end data collection in social media, as well as provide an opensource decentralised data layer platform for the development of decentralised community applications.

Here is the original unedited ANN for our posterity.

https://i.imgur.com/eMu84qc.png

Pigeoncoin

On March 21st 2018 Pigeoncoin was launched as a proof-of-concept network for a new algorithm called X16S (shuffle). Pigeoncoin is a forked-fork of Bitcoin. We do everything on Discord. https://discord.gg/SZcf63h

I didn’t want a big richlist so I tried to bring CPU miners in on day one while handling the to-do list. On day five, I asked our group of twelve to start onboarding more miners... the word spread like wildfire through the Ravencoin community. Hashrate jumped from 1.5 MH to 20 MH in an hour, and membership jumped to 100.

The next day, last night, a GPU randowhale nearly burned down the network. @brianmct bailed everyone out with his quickly patched nevermore Nvidia GPU miner. We have one pool up and more are coming. We wanted more time on CPU mining but it just wasn’t in the cards. Hashrate is now 9600 MH and we have ~300 members.

The network has been active for six days. We’ve been out straight since launch. I apologize for not posting sooner. The last 24 hours have caught us with our pants down. After posting this [ANN] I’m going to bed. I hope everyone else is, too.

Why did all this happen so fast?

Some history:

I was an early miner on the x16r (random) Ravencoin network. x16r uses the last sixteen digits of the previous block hash to call its sixteen sub-algos. This pseudo-randomness is said to improve ASIC resistance.

I noticed that x16r GPU miners experience fluctuating power and hashrate. I figured this was because each algo used different amounts of power, and if the hashcycle composition was majority high power algos by chance, it would cause the power to rise. I found the uncertainty made it hard for miners to tune their system, while reducing the efficiency and potentially the lifespan of power supplies. I felt the total cost of mining with x16r could be improved.

My solution was to use the same last sixteen digits to reorder a list of all sixteen algos, and then use that “shuffled” list to call the sixteen sub-algos. The result is a hashcycle with every sub-algo represented once. The composition would be constant, but the randomness would be preserved.

This gave birth to X16S (shuffle) which maintains the legendary randomness of x16r while providing consistency for hashrate and power demand.

Hashrate consistency comparison between x16r and X16S (shuffle).

X16S Whitepaper: https://github.com/Pigeoncoin/pigeonbrand/blob/master/X16S-whitepaper.pdf



Blockchain Stats

We have a 1 minute block time, 5000 PGN reward, 21B cap, 2016 block retarget, 16 shuffled algorithms (X16S shuffle). There was no genesis block reward. There was no premine.

Timestamp reads "Reuters 21/Mar/2018 China stays on the sidelines as Venezuela spirals downward.”


Roadmap

Our initial goal was to prove the algorithm works as intended. Well, we proved success two weeks ahead of schedule thanks to our community, so now we get to try to catch up in all other areas! Expect an official announcement regarding roadmap very soon.

As I was writing this [ANN], Enemyminer announced an alternative X16S (shuffle) Nvidia miner.

Also, I have no idea why IMG tags aren't working.

Mining fees reduced to 0%!


Miners! In order to help distribute the network hashrate http://powerpool.money/ and https://pool.pigeoncoin.org/ have both set mining fees to 0% for February! At the moment an unknown pool/miner controls a significant portion of the hashrate so by two pools setting fees at 0% this should give miners a great option to help spread things out! To be clear, we don't feel this unknown pool is malicious, but it raises questions that go away when mining to public pools. If you haven't mined Pigeoncoin in a while please consider hopping on the network for a little bit on one of these two pools or if you are mining an unknown pool please consider hopping on one at least for a little bit as well to help the overall strength of the project!

TL;DR: PowerPool and Pigeoncoin pool are 0% fees for Feb! Time to dust off your mining rig and help strengthen the network!

Example Config

Power Pool:
Code:
t-rex -a x21s -o stratum+tcp://powerpool.money:3224 -u <PGN_WALLET_ADDRESS> -p "WorkerName c=PGN"

Pigeoncoin Pool:
Code:
t-rex -a x21s -o stratum+tcp://138.68.75.8:3224 -u <PGN_WALLET_ADDRESS> -p "WorkerName c=PGN"

If it's 0% fees shouldn't the block reward be 5000 - why did the last block still show 4750 ?

Great question. We have a 5% development fee on every block coded into our wallet (network wide). 5% or 250 Pigeoncoin goes into our 3 of 7 multisig address managed by 7 community key holders. We are a community run coin and had a community vote to raise development funds by introducing this dev fee at block 420,000 with a guaranteed end at block 1,420,000 (roughly 2 years from when it started). Hope this helped to clarify?

Thanks for clarifying and I do understand Devs need to eat however few are mining on the official pool at the moment so you won't be receiving any rewards because you won't solve any blocks.  Just a suggestion, drop the Dev fee for lets say 24 hours to encourage miners to return back to the pool and then reinstate the 5% Dev fee after that.

Our official pool fee is already set to 0%. The 5% is taken at the protocol level so all pool miners and solo miners receive 5% less regardless of where or how they mine. As this 5% dev fee is at the protocol level it cannot be removed without a hard fork. It ends at block 1,420,000. Just to clarify further, if you mine on the official pool you pay no fee so the pool receives the full block reward of 4750 like any other pool or solo miner would anywhere else. If you mined say with a pool that charges a 1% dev fee, then the pool would get 4750 for the block and then also remove the 1% fee they charge the pool miner, so you'd get less from another pool than mining on the official pool. Effectively pools with a 0% fee only lose 5%, pools with a 1% fee lose 6%.

After nesting for the winter Pigeoncoin is spreading its wings once again! Over the past two weeks there has been a lot of development progress towards our upcoming Masternodes/Datanodes fork. Testnet is operational and syncing. Be prepared for Pigeoncoin's Masternodes. Our MN collateral will be set to 1 Million Pigeoncoin. See our list of Pigeoncoin exchanges: https://pigeoncoin.org/#exchanges (read our disclaimer and trade safe). Why Masternodes? Read our litepaper for an overview of our unique usecase for Masternodes. Pigeoncoin Litepaper: https://github.com/Pigeoncoin/brand/blob/master/Pigeoncoin_Litepaper_v1.pdf

Go on their discord and ask them to post the BTC address of the DEV fund (They keep banning me when I ask).  I'm sure the people running the coin are exit scamming, or maybe just really incompetent.

They might say their dev fund is held in PGN, but they dumped tens of millions of PGN of the dev fund to BTC without telling the community months ago and this BTC is not in a public address.

We have an actual release of the testnet. Its just an mandatory UPDATE (no restart!), because we need a congruent testnet to know if this code works or not.

https://github.com/akshaynexus/pigeoncoin-dash/releases/tag/v0.17.2.7

addnode=213.136.83.223
addnode=89.22.110.234

Be sure you set testnet=1 in pigeon.conf

Masternode collateral is 1.000.000

At those who already run a Masternode, please check if its POS_Banned.

If this happens, please re-start them with proTx update_service command in debug console.
