December 8th

1. Monero 0.8.8.6 released - Lots of the recent fixes and changes are bundled in. Remeber to only download from a trusted source

I've read new Missive from December 8, and got very exciting!
Happy to see bugs are fixed, long-awaiting new executable's release has come.

Very nice missive. I have a couple of questions about the new version.

1) Should transaction fees for withdrawing from Polo be reduced soon (currently 0.1 XMR)?
2) Are there likely to be any problems with any of the unofficial GUI's? As far as I know they haven't been updated in the last 4 months.

Cheers, Q

Cheers for the new missives some steady progress and interesting new features.

I do wonder how many people will use the smart mining feature or how much of the network it would be if people were to use it. In my opinion even if most users ran it we could make up a few % of the network and make it more unprofitable for the botnet dumpers.

withdraw fees are exchange-based so they can charge whatever they want unfortunately, I rather beta-test a new official xmr gui Cheesy

Yes, long-term with sufficient easy-to-use interfaces and enough network growth we can make botnets a relatively tiny part of the system.

hello guys

its been long time since i have only very limited internet access right now. i wanted to say that i am very happy with the ongoing development and its very nice to see version 0.8.8.6 going finally live. the KB fee is a big step forward. once i am home i will try to donate some more.

much love to the devs and community, we have something really great going on here and you all know it.

i am still buying, even if my funds are limited and i am not able to watch the markets like i was in the past.

no idea where the bottom will be, but as long as there are people like me, the bottom must be somewhere.

take care and good luck

I'm having trouble with bitmonerod on Win7/64 - it hangs on initializing the P2P server. From bitmonerod.log:

Code:
2014-Dec-09 09:45:42.550851 bitmonero v0.8.8.6-release
2014-Dec-09 09:45:42.550851 Module folder: C:\Users\****\AppData\Roaming\bitmonero\bitmonerod.exe
2014-Dec-09 09:45:42.551851 Initializing P2P server...

It stayed like this for about 15 minutes before I gave up waiting. In this meanwhile, bitmonerod uses about 4 MB of RAM and has no CPU usage. Any clues?

It is a myth that botnets are 100% profit. It is well documented that botnet nodes have a market price. If mining brings in less than that, it is better to sell the node (or do something else with it).

Our primary concern though is creating the most secure and private coin and that means (among other things) decentralization of mining. If that includes botnets, well, we can't solve every problem in the world. As fluffypony said it can a relatively small part of the system, assuming a large number of users. But without users, none of this actually matters.

What would be really nice in terms of the simplewallet functionality is if there was a way to change your simplewallet password.  Is such a feature planned at all?

I think you can change your password when you recover from the mnemonic seed.

Any decent projections on BTC price in next month, I've been waiting for it to dip again but it's holding pretty steady last week or so. I want to invest this months income in xmr but want to grab the btc as low as possible obviously. Cheesy

Whats a decent projection?  If you are asking for an accurate one there doesnt seem to be such a thing in these markets.
