Silkcoin is pure Proof of Stake coin, except in the 2 stages of initial distribution where POS and POW are mixed. First stage lasted 5 days, we're now in the second POS phase, next phase will be the last POW phase.
There will be 3 phases of distribution, a week (10 000 blocks) of POW/POS followed by a full month of pure POS; Then when Silkcoin gained some popularity a last phase of POW/POS similar to the first one will happen, helping distributing silkcoins to the maximum number of people before full POS stage. The fixed interest rate is 2% and coin start earning coin-age after 12 hours.

Built-in market explorer (soon exchanger), block explorer, statistics, coin control, QR code, beautiful UI, reserve balance, easy unlock/lock for staking, built-in IRC chat, and a lot more to come! We will be releasing new updates every week, and in 10 days since launch we already released 2 updates greatly improving users experience.

We're also working on a big project we call silkcoin eco-system where all will de decentralized more infos here : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=599438.msg6829311#msg6829311 it will be released shorty after we reach the last full POS phase.

Here is the paper, and the whole theory revolving around silkcoin eco-system.

Now let's talk about this eco-system. We didn't want to unveil it this soon but since we talked a bit about I will tell you a few things. First of all it's in very early stages, so don't get too excited it won't be out before at least 2-3 months.
The whole system works with torrents and the blockchain, Satoshi's greatest invention wasn't the bitcoin currency it was the blockchain. He invented the first way to really decentralize anything, on a freedom point of view there's so much more to be done than a currency.

So here's how it works, once you're connected through your wallet, you will be able to access a local website on your computer at 127.0.0.1:1666, this hub will regoup a lot of different functions all decentralized and based on the blockchain.
And yes this means no censoring and freedom of speech. We're pretty sure we can succeed in time to make all the planned functionalities, but they will be added progressively. I'll detail later what the first integrations will be.
This hub works a bit like a social network, with profiles, friends, post boards etc.. You'll generate a unique user that will be tied to your secret key, if you lose the secret key there's no way to retrieve your account. To interact with someone (make an exchange, send a message etc..) you'll have to be friends with each other, this is a limitation we can do nothing about.
At the moment we think we'll launch social network features and file sharing first since they are already working pretty great on full POS. Exchanger will follow, we're still having a few unresolved issues. And we thought of a marketplace but we're still discussing the implications and we don't think it will be feasible because of a lot of obvious concerns. These are the main primary objectives at the moment, but of course there's plenty of possibilities and ideas who knows how all this will evolve.

Design is also in very early stages, don't be shocked if it doesn't look very sexy!

Here's a screen of the network status when you open the wallet & connect to the website. You can't do anything until the blockchain is up to date and data downloaded. Then of the profile, most functions you see are already working pretty well. We'll show you a screenshot of the exchanger once it's a bit more advanced, at the moment it's not looking like anything Smiley.


Of course we welcome any dev who wants to help us, just contact us with your skills we need all the help we can get. And no, if you copy-pasted a coin you're not a dev Smiley.
We'll answer all questions in time, I know there must be a lot of questions arising but look at the size of this post hehe and at first we didn't want to talk about it so soon Shocked again, it's still in very early stages but the system we use seems to be working great.

As you can see, if this eco-system comes out it's going to be huge. It's a decentralized censorfree world, you'll be staking, securing the network and winning money while browsing the eco-system. And Silkcoin will be the main currency here, we'd actually be the first to really solve the issue of most cryptos "what to do with my coins other than speculate" and manage to keep a lot of users with the wallet open to secure even more the network.

FAQ
  • No, Silkcoin is not affiliated in any way with silkroad, "silk = the very fine soft lustrous fibre produced by a silkworm to make its cocoon"
  • What is Proof Of Stake and how can i mine?
    Proof of stake is another way of mining, which involves holding coins. Coins staying still for more than 12 hours start generating what we call coin age, once it has started you may hit a stake block and win an interest on staked coins. Like in POW, hitting blocks is a bit random so don't be alarmed if you *should* hit a block soon and you don't. You don't have to keep your wallet open to generate coin age but you have to let it open to hit a stake block.
  • How compound interest is calculated?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compound_interest#Compound_Interest
  • Is the number of coins limited?
    100 million coins will be generated throught POW and POS generation is not limited.
  • Why the 4% premine? (supposed to be 2% of 100 million at first but evolved due to Fork & POS blocks)
    We thought about it for a while and decided a premine was mandatory for the success of the coin. First it helps distribution as does the 2 POW phases, a fact that is widely criticized with POS cryptos featuring 1 distribution stage, 50% premine, ipos...
    Then have a look at all the dying 0 premine coins trying in vain to raise community bounties (yes blackcoin is an exception and a amazing coin and we wish all the best for them).
    Our decision is final so please don't complain about it, you are free to go mine another coin, and also free to claim your part of the premine by helping the coin and our community.
    About 1 100 000 SC is left from the premine today 15 june 2014.

 
  • When will the built-in block explorer be fully finished?
    Main functions are here so currently it is not in progress. But expect a lot of changes in the new version coming out before the second POW phase.
  • How do i keep some money from staking? Why would i do that?
    Just go in settings and set the "reserve balance" field which stands for the amount of money you DON'T want to stake, your money is stuck while it is staking that's why you may want to keep a determined amount available.

Announcement two days prior to launch is almost ninja Wink and anyway ninja is not good for the distribution, in case you haven't noticed there will be 2 POW phases so everyone has a chance to mine even if you're not there for launch so our goal is not to ninja launch on the contrary.

http://altcoinherald.com/flashcoins-minute-gone-next/

Also with difficulty retargeting each block there will be no instamine if you're afraid of that.
As for the enthusiast post i don't see what's wrong with their posts  Wink

Funky background on the website  Cheesy

2 more days, I might go back to Scrypt mining for this, dammit  Cool

All views are my own, except those that I have subconsciously inherited from my parents and those that I have nicked from far cleverer people.

Sorry badam I misread Smiley because for us ninja launch is not good.
Everything is ready but we felt raising awarness for 2 days was the right move to get a better distribution at launch.

Good for who? You?

What a selfish dick. Allowing some individuals to "get in early" because they noticed the ninja announcement first is not beneficial to the coin in any way.

But yes, those sockpuppet accounts are blatant and obvious.
Shows that the dev is sneaky.

That,s why you wont have good distribution. Pos/pow coins are now the hit and there will be gigahashes mining on the coin right from the moment and only a few asic owners and big gpu farm owners will benefit from it and you will remain without supporters because that is the miner thype who is just dumping it at first exchange. Short minning period, so you will get only dumpers and a coin without any support but you will see this yourself. What do you think bc, wc, shibe, cinni why was ninja launched? Pre anned pow/pos coins are without support, just sayin Wink

Not our fault if people with 0 posts replies to the topic, it's not self moderated! (by the way you can see we are online at the same time)
And you can make your own mind by looking the "New member" , "Newbie", " Brand new" labels on the posting account don't be dupe.

As for the pre ann I understand your point badam, we would like to have some different opinions and maybe we will launch sooner if this is what the community wants.

At this moment the date of the 9 MAY stays.

Yes indeed our coin is based on blackcoin, the specs are sometime similar so it was a copy paste thanks just edited it.

And we are not ashamed of it, it's the point of open source. And by the way you can also quote where we say.
