While this thread is being bumped, mind as well give a 2.0 update. Internal testing of 2.0.0a1 is going great--there's one remaining bug with transaction indexes I'm chasing. Block propagation/generation, the ledger system, etc. all seem to be working well. Goal is to get a cleaned-up copy of 2.0.0a1 in public testing sometime tomorrow, June 19th. 2.0.0a1 ended up being an internal test due to tons of small tweaks and "alright, delete xyz and try again... what block are you on? What hash? Alright, try to forge a block like this..." but 2.0.0a1 should be good for a public test.

A few things to note--there are some obvious limitations of 2.0.0a1. In its current state, there is no difficulty adjustment, and for testing purposes timestamp verification is OFF. While the network protocols allow for complex transactions with multiple outputs, RPC only has a simple send command--sending to one address at a time.

For testing purposes, each block is worth 100 atomic units. Obviously in the actual client, we will have a MUCH larger block reward (in atomic units), to support many decimals (probably 8 or so) of precision. These atomic units can be thought of as micro-Curecoin. The source code will be available as a zip file and on Github. To play with the downloadable JAR, you will need Java SE 7 or 8 installed, JRE is fine.

Hey everyone! We got source code on a public github now! https://github.com/Vorksholk/Curecoin

Check it out! Read through the spaghetti code! Don't bother compiling anything unless you're really so-inclined, it's going to change before 2.0.0a1 public alpha, which will hopefully occur within the next 24 hours.

My apologies about the code running of the screen--I'm terrible when it comes to short lines of code/comments. Not in the mood now to go through and rework my code to appear pretty on Github, but that's an eventual job to undertake.

Still got some major bugs to crack, the network based on this code is very fragile. Josh broke it by sending some weird transactions. xD

If you just want to scroll mindlessly through the code: https://github.com/Vorksholk/Curecoin/commit/3fb9889e57acd7a709cb5659bd07a0e52851acb4

Alright, 2.0.0a1 public testing time!

Compiled JAR files:
http://1.curecoinmirror.com/2.0.0a1/2.0.0a1.zip

Source code:
Curecoin Daemon: https://github.com/Vorksholk/Curecoin
Curecoin RPC Client: https://github.com/Vorksholk/CurecoinClient
Curecoin Testnet Miner: https://github.com/Vorksholk/CurecoinTestnetMiner

Quickstart Instructions:
Launch 2.0.0a1Daemon first (Windows, double-click, any other OS enter "java -jar 2.0.0a1Daemon.jar" in the terminal, make sure you are in the directory where 2.0.0a1Daemon.jar is)

Launch 2.0.0a1Client second (Windows, double-click, any other OS enter "java -jar 2.0.0a1Client.jar" in the terminal, make sure you are in the directory where 2.0.0a1Client.jar is)

Launch 2.0.0a1Miner third (Windows, double-click, any other OS enter "java -jar 2.0.0a1Miner.jar" in the terminal, make sure you are in the directory where 2.0.0a1Miner.jar is)

The miner does pointless hash work, it's simply to simulate doing computational work, and receiving a certificate. Certificates for mining are signed by a certificate authority server run by us, with an IP hard-coded into the miner code. It can take a few minutes to mine a block. Difficulty is fixed at 150,000. Don't make any optimized miners unless you're really bored, as the miner has no purpose other than to trickle out certificates and keep the network running with blocks.

This is a TESNET release, so any Curecoins here are worthless. Each block mines 100 coins, which are atomic units (you can't send .1 of a coin). In the future, this will be the equivalent of 1 satoshi--so no need to divide them. The client comes hard-coded with one genesis block and one block after that, and then it's normally-mined blocks that the client has to catch-up with.

You can type "help" in the Curecoin client to see the (very-limited, at the moment) list of commands available.

Plans are to have four types of nodes:

Dedicated nodes are best for machines that have lots of bandwidth, strong, reliable connections, and forwarded ports/dedicated IP. They allow up to 150 connections, and focus on sending large chunks of the blockchain to synchronizing peers, in addition to forwarding real-time traffic through the network. Dedicated nodes store the entire blockchain, and may help with TCP punchthroughs.

Full nodes are best for machines with moderate bandwidth and forwarded ports/dedicated IP. They allow up to 50 connections, and focus on forwarding real-time traffic through the network. Full nodes store the entire blockchain. In some instances, they may help with TCP punchthroughs.

Light nodes are best for machines that will not be online 24/7 and do not have forwarded ports/dedicated IP. They allow up to 8 connections, and forward real-time traffic through the network. They store only the last 14,400 network blocks in order to verify PoS blocks.

Whisper nodes are best for mobile devices with inconsistent network connections and very limited storage. They allow up to 8 connections, forward real-time traffic through the network, and refuse to answer calls for block queries. they store only the last 2400 network blocks, to provide transaction history on any address for approximately 5 days under normal network conditions.

By default, clients will likely run in full-node mode. Dedicated nodes add additional integrity to the structure of the Curecoin network, and are great for more powerful machines with the potential to mine blocks, as they will have quicker access to network transactions and will be able to include more transactions in their blocks, speeding up the network while earning larger transaction fees from the larger transaction tables in the blocks they produce.

The mobile app will be in whisper mode by default, with support for RPC-only mode, paired with a light, full, or dedicated node for network state info.

There was. PS3EdOlkkola got 2,167,792,538 points. The max value of an Integer in Java is 2,147,483,647 points, and the software we were using for calculating change in user balance was parsing Integers, unfortunately. The code has been updated to use Longs (9,223,372,036,854,775,807 max value) and the stats server is working again. We'll probably back-calculate the missed payout manually.

Stats weren't having issues for that long, looks like you haven't earned any points on team Curecoin recently. Right now, you have 137,608,535 points with Curecoin, which appears to have been constant for quite a while. For third-party verification, the page at http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?s=&u=657024 also shows that you have been inactive for a while on the Curecoin team--could you check your folding machines and make sure:
1. They're producing WUs
2. They're folding for your username, and
3. They're on team 224497

sorry, should have posted user ID - haitch was old ID which has been inactive for a while. I've been dual mining under ID: Haitch_ALL_12guGMu4Rf7niuffwizPLLGxDhxYWJqnFU  http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?s=&u=671527

which had been receiving payouts until 6/16.

Found a bug that's been affecting stats for two days, that should be fixed. However, it shouldn't have been down a week--what's your payout address? PS3Ed broke the Integer barrier on 6/21, so payouts before then should have been running fine.

I am also missing today's payout, http://folding.extremeoverclocking.com/user_summary.php?s=&u=656792 . Cryptobullion pool was not showing any stats despite submitting ~ 1mill points yesterday.

Found the bug, thanks for pointing it out! We're doing a double-payout soon to compensate, so it'll take your percentage of the last two days' contributions and give you that percent of (7488*2).

Here's how 2.0's stacking up for anyone who wants a quick summary:

2.0.0a1 released
We released an alpha version of 2.0 with core features enabled. IT IS IN TESTNET MODE. NONE OF THE COINS ARE REAL.
We'd love for people to browse through the source code: https://github.com/Vorksholk/Curecoin
Or download compiled jars (Need Java 1.7 or 1.8 installed) and run them: http://1.curecoinmirror.com/2.0.0a1/2.0.0a1.zip

Working in 2.0.0a1
-> Transactions Users can send testnet coins back and forth.

-> Merkle Signatures Instead of using ECDSA like Bitcoin, 2.0 uses Merkle Signatures, which are simple enough for anyone with highschool-level math to understand on a technical level, and are resistant to quantum computers. If you want a brief summary of Merkle Trees and ECDSA, see here: http://1.curecoinmirror.com/Curecoin%20Signatures%20Compressed.pdf

-> Certificate blockchain The blockchain is based on validation of certificates issued by certificate authorities. On the testnet network, these certificates are signed for users based on pointless computational work. In the actual 2.0 release, certificates will be signed by research institutes.

There are some bugs and limitations of this super-early alpha. During abnormal network conditions (super-fast blocks, etc.), transactions occasionally get rejected, and the sent amount is refunded to the sender.

The RPC commands are abysmally limited. This is one of the main features of the upcoming 2.0.0a2--tons more RPC commands.

Difficulty is fixed at 150000.

The ledger system isn't fully implemented--so the full blockchain is required to participate on the network. Most of the code is there, but 2.0.0a1 is about testing the blockchain, signature technology, and transaction propagation/inclusion.

The miner was thrown together quickly, and has some issues handling network connectivity issues, generally disconnecting permanently. I'll fix this, but it isn't a major priority, as it won't even be a part of the final release. It's a testnet thing.

For debugging purposes, clients will, by default, only connect to one peer, which we run. This is so we can easily reset the testnet, and monitor all network traffic for debugging. Obviously in the final release (or more realistically during the beta phase) peers will freely connect to one another, and we won't have to maintain any infrastructure (and won't have control over the network).



Some words about 2.0 features:
2.0 will have a number of technical innovations that set it apart from other crypto currencies. The ledger system will allow clients to store only the last 14,400 blocks plus the ledger, making the Blockchain a manageable size, and making coins 100% fungible.

Multisig addresses will be identifiable on the network, and will be defined by rules specified on creation; 2 or more Curecoin addresses will be defined as subordinates of a multisig address, and the structure of the multisig address defines how many of the subordinate addresses are required to create a successful outbound transaction.

 Proving documents to the 2.0 blockchain will be trivial, supported by a special transaction type that survives blockchain pruning.

Proof-of-stake won't consider the age of coins in payout or priority, and stake blocks must be interspersed between certificate blocks, making it impossible to fork the network more than one block using proof-of-stake blocks. Addresses can earn stake without mining a block--simply by submitting a stake-generating transaction to be included in a stake block. People wishing to earn the transaction fees can create actual stake blocks. An address must not send coins for 14,400 blocks (30 days, subject to change) to stake. Coins received within the last 14,400 days will receive a prorated payout.

17th - 20th were low points day, so probably not many coins, but threshold for payout is set at 10 so would have expected a payout by the 20th - but may have not crossed the threshold, the hit the PS3Ed issue, and the payout yesterday and today covered it. Thanks for checking it out though.

Have you guys thought about changing the website upon this release? The interface of curecoin.net just looks like total balls. Webdesign is very much like a fashion trend, you know.

Let me know if you guys need assistance, I would like to help fund that and I know some web designers. Just PM me.

A lot of things will undergo a facelift for 2.0, but the website will probably stay close to the same--I like the way it looks Smiley Maybe we'll add a bit more jazz to it though.

Hey everyone, the Curecoin team is looking for input on some ideas:

1. A pure-PoS cryptocurrency that we pay out for 30 days for contributions to a few other scientific projects during the next month, and then runs in pure PoS mode forever, after payout premine funds are exhausted. Does not convert to 2.0--this would be an entirely separate, short-term coin.

2. A refocus of cc1.0 to pay out users for contribution to multiple projects bridging the gap between now and 2.0 launch. Payouts would occur in regular Curecoin. Either we could continue with the 7488 coin emission per day and allocate a certain quantity of it to other scientific projects, or we could increase the daily coin emission.

3. The accumulation of 'virtual' curecoins for contributions to other scientific projects until 2.0 launches, which would convert to 2.0 coins at launch.

Remember, all Curecoin 1.0 coins WILL be convertable to 2.0 coins at a one-to-one conversion ratio when 2.0 launches. That being said, option 1 above is a separate coin, and would not be convertible to 2.0 coins, it would be a separate blockchain entirely.

Here's the other projects we're looking at at the moment:
GPUGrid
World Community Grid (Not entirely medical, but very humanitarian-oriented)
Rosetta@Home


DENIS@Home also looks interesting, though we'd like to see the project develop a bit further before integrating with it, as it is very new.

POEM@Home is also an interesting project, though it seems somewhat inactive. Keeping our eyes on it for sure.

If anyone has any other projects they'd like to see on the above list, or any reasons for not liking the ones mentioned, please voice your opinions! Projects like SETI@Home, MilkyWay@Home, DistRTgen, Primegrid, Yoyo@Home, and Einstein@Home aren't currently under consideration due to pursuing goals outside the main focus of Curecoin--like searching radio signals for signs of intelligent life, mapping the galaxy, generating rainbow tables, finding prime numbers, exploring mathematical principles, etc. While these are valid and fascinating types of research, Curecoin's main goal still lies in medical advancement and similar humanitarian goals. Some projects lay out the outskirts of Curecoin territory, such as ClimatePrediction.net.

If enough people in the community feel very strongly about a non-medical project being added to Curecoin, we're here to listen, but we don't want to dilute the project's goals.

market cap is closer to $75,000

Just wanted to add (and Vork can correct me if I'm wrong) ... that $75,000 market cap - when converted to the actual cost of running those Work Units on the CHEAPEST EC2 cloud instance would cost users $0.08-$0.12 per coin to produce.

So even considering today's price per coin of $0.013, CureCoin produced nearly $500,000 worth of computational research (that number is AFTER you've payed ~19% to SHA-256 miners). Add to that the points generated independently by FoldingCoin (pre-merge mining) and you start to form a bigger picture - these aren't "cute" hobbies that introverts do in their basements anymore - they have serious implications for research in the future.

Granted its simplistic to use Amazon AWS spot pricing as a benchmark - since our members use anything from a simple tablet all the way up to  32 core servers with multiple high-end GPU's. But that contribution of $500K to medical research, and ultimately to humanity has not been factored into the CureCoin price by the market for various reasons (some of which lead to lots of swearing and hair pulling Smiley )

Ultimately, the crypto-currency market will come around. Gordon Gekko's "greed is good" was never more aptly applied than to science coins. There really is no downside to "over-securing" these networks since more competition yields more research data by default. - Cheers!
