Please forgive us for the extremely extended response time.
There has been some sickness in the Dev team The Good News:
The more technical folks have kept themselves busy
Expect a very interesting update in the near future!
I think this is an interesting idea and would like to try it out. I'm having trouble getting it to work under Debian/Tails. I got the source code, but ran into trouble trying to compile it. I don't want to spend a lot of time on it, so I'll just check again in a few weeks and see if it works then.
I don't think there is anything nefarious about the idea though. On the contrary, it's probably the most fair distribution of a proof-of-stake coin to date.
Thank you very much for the kind words!
We agree completely: You've almost quoted us
Concerning your trouble compiling the CLAM Client on Debian/Tails:
In situations like these, the details are king.
If you could please post an issue on the CLAMS git.
Add as much detail as possible concerning any errors or steps taken.
More = Better.
What's happening with the pool?
I understand your confusion, completely.The Good News:
It appears an exchange with exponentially
more volume will be listing CLAMS in the near future.
In addition, they intend to distribute the exchange's attributed CLAMS to their users - if everything can be figured out.The Bad News:
Until that happens, that leaves us with a tough situation.
The BTC from sold alt-coins is safe and sound; but there is no established market to purchase CLAMS for distribution.
Assuming the above deal falls through, the only recourse is somewhat complicated.
It would involve requesting signed messages from miners, verifying those signatures, and distributing BTC directly.
We want to avoid that if at all possible.
Regardless, we have fundamental, and we believe exciting, changes coming to the CLAM Client in the near future.
Yet another feature to set us apart from the sea of altcoins
