About Gulden

Gulden was founded in April 2014 based on the Litecoin codebase. In 2015 the Litecoin codebase is abandoned and Gulden switched to the Bitcoin codebase. After years of development it can be said that Gulden now has its own codebase.
Gulden started with a 10% premine that was spent entirely on development. The current developments are now paid by part of the mining reward.
The direction of the developments are determined by the Gulden advisory board (GAB). The GAB consists of 9 members and is elected each year from the members of the community.
Anyone can stand for election. Voting for candidates is recorded and done through the Gulden blockchain.
Gulden would like to become a generally accepted means of payment. To this end, the development is aimed at making the wallets as user-friendly as possible.

GAB Members and Gulden Team
GAB meeting minutes


What makes Gulden unique:


- PoW2 (Proof of work + Witness)
- SegSig (Segregated Signature)
- SIGMA (Semi Iterated Global Memory Argon)
- Linking (Control your mobile wallet from your desktop wallet)
- Wallet accounts
- Unity (Unified codebase)
- Delta (Difficulty Algorithm)
- Sonic (Fast Sync)


Features of Gulden explained:


PoW2

Gulden does not use a standard PoW consensus model, but the in-house developed PoW2 model. This is a combination of PoW and Witness. Miners control the transactions and the Witness controls the miners.
Anyone can become a witness by locking an amount of Gulden in a Witness account in the desktop wallet for a certain amount of time.
Depending on the weighting of the witness account (chosen duration and amount in the account) the witness earns rewards.
The advantage of this system is that the Gulden blockchain can withstand 51% attacks without relying heavily on energy-guzzling PoW miners or vulnerable standard PoS systems.
Transactions can be safely accepted after one confirmation instead of the standard 3-6 confirmations.

SIGMA

Since October 17, 2019, the Gulden team has implemented the Sigma algorithm and since then it is possible to mine Gulden solo without additional equipment.
The algorithm is asic resistant and can be done on a normal desktop computer using it’s CPU. One can simply use this CPU mining algorithm by creating a mining account in the desktop wallet and start mining Gulden.

SegSig - Segregated Signature - Detailed article still to be published but was implemented with PoW2.

Advantages of Segregated Signature
1. 58% space saving on all transactions. More then twice the bitcoin SegWit implementation.
2. 58% increased transaction throughput. No block size or frequency changes needed.
3. Overhaul to the transaction script system which allowed us to implement PoW² and SegSig as clean as possible along with other benefits.

Linking

The desktop wallets can contain multiple accounts and mobile wallets can be linked to a single account in the desktop.
For more info: How to Link

Sonic

Developed to decrease the initial sync time of the Gulden core wallets by up to 60% depending on the underlying hardware.

Very old project. But what are the major accomplishments so far? A lot are aiming to be the next payment gateway, but how many merchants so far has accepted gulden to be included in their payment system? Is the guldenmap updated? Does it mean that all those merchants in your guldenmap are accepting your coin?

We are happy with the development progress for Gulden as per the OP.

May this year we had a bit of set back with a payment processor called Nocks that unfortunately had to close it's doors https://twitter.com/nocksapp?lang=en as they were bought out by another company. Quite a few merchants that didn't accept Gulden directly used Nocks as a intermediary between Gulden payments. Some of the community members will be able to shed more light on which stores still accept Gulden as it was mainly community driven.

The Gulden advisory board have also acknowledged the importance of getting a replacement for Nocks and so https://blockhut.com/ was born. Work still needs to be done on this new exchange medium but it will become a big step forward for payments in the future. This includes a Decentralized exchange as per the last Gulden Advisory Board meeting.

https://guldenadvisoryboard.com/gulden-notulen-gab-meeting-7-september-2020/

Full English minutes below and I have bolded the parts you and others might find interesting.

ENGLISH MEETING NOTES SEPTEMBER 7TH 2020
Present: Rijk, Robby, Onno, Annemiek, Nick, Paul, Jaap.
Absent: Matthias, Marc, Bart.

On september 7th 2020 the GAB had an online meeting together with Rijk Plasman. Here you can find a summary of the meeting and the most important subjects during this meeting.

Latest updates from the past few days.
Rijk: We needed to fix an error in the miningrewards (these were to high). This has been fixed with update 2.2.0.12. We didn’t have any noticable errors but it was a slight inconvenience. The blockreward adjustment (through an hardfork) became active sooner than anticipated. A lot of witness devices (mainly the raspberry PI’s) didn’t have the 2.2.0.12 update installed yet. This caused the chain to halt for a longer time than we wanted. For future updates in hard-forks Gulden and the GAB plan to release the software sooner and give users more time to update to the latest version. We also try to communicate this better.

Gulden does have a checkpointserver, a server wich controles the network. This was needed in several transitionphases when introducing PoW2 and witness. This server can be shut-down to decentralize Gulden even more. The GAB votes in front of this action.

The GAB’s opinion is that we need a system where the PI’s can upgrade without any action needed from G-Dash (Bastijn). For now we won’t give it any priority in the near future; but it’s something on our back-log to maintain the decentralization of Gulden.

Electron wallet. Concerning the Electron wallet it looks very promising but nevertheless a lot of work is still in progress, mainly in the connection between front-end and back-end. The implementation will be done for NOVO first. Here al the early stage bugs will be solved. When this is ready it can be easily implemented for Gulden as well.

Progress DEX – At this moment the development team is working on Electron. After that development on the DEX will be started.

New exchange listing for Gulden. The plan is to add an additional exchange listing for Gulden this year. (apart from the Dex)

Questions to the GAB/Gulden from the Gulden Community.

What is Gulden’s big vision?
Gulden is a decentralized project and therefore has no vision of its own. The vision about Gulden is different for everyone and therefore personal. Rijk was asked what his vision is, which is as follows: Gulden is naturally on its way to becoming an (inter)national currency. You cannot force that, because this depends on various uncontrollable factors, the most important of which is the price. Gulden is currently not being used as a payment method. Even if the tools were now here for it, far too few people would actually pay with it. Having tools is more of a marketing gimmick at the moment, so desirable, as it can help with adoption. Only when there are very many users it does become interesting for companies to accept Gulden as a payment method. This situation can only arise naturally, because it is a decentralized project. Part of that natural way is the coming / going of community members, where there is always a strong support group. That is already the case, but I expect that it will grow, due to the decentralized nature of Gulden, where you can have your own vision.

When will it be possible again to transfer Euro’s on my IBAN Bank-account directly from the Gulden wallet?
As soon as any broker supports this we’ll have it implemented again.

Now Nocks is gone, can Gulden develop a plugin for checkout pages on webshops?
Rijk: This is something we’re working on through Blockhut

Since bittrex is asking KYC for all levels of traders, this may hinder some of your followers to trade your coin in that exchange. But I saw that you are also trading in yobit, but some users are not comfortable using that exchange. So hopefully, we will see this coin to a more user friendly and reputable exchange, no KYC (if you are trading below 2-3 btc/day).

Yobit haven't updated their Gulden wallet the last 4 years. So, all Gulden there are stucked in the Yobit wallet. Yobit refuses to do something about it but also don't want to delist Gulden after several times asking for that.
No withdraws are possible. Don't use Yobit is my advise.

I absolutely love the witness feature that was introduced to this coin, providing an extra layer of security when also collecting some passive income from staking. I know this last bear market has been brutal not only to Gulden but to many other coins, but the perfect storm is brewing and i'm sure things will pivot at any moment.

Distribution of mining rewards is still fantastic. No pools with >30% influence. Only solomining, Only CPU mining.

Here is the manual https://medium.com/coinmonks/mining-gulden-d4fe8c690939
