Release Phoenix standalone test (PLEASE TEST!)
Done, windows 7 64 bits on intel Penryn/Harpertown (no aes instructions) / 4gb of ram

...blocks being mined with a block target of 1 second, with the difficulty converging to your hash rate
happened

Once you get to block 1000 ... see the difficulty increase by a factor of 8, your hash rate double
#1000: diff 18 --> ~140-150   hashrate: 18-->41

test perfomed with my own building according to the OP instructions (thanks to Cryptrol  Wink)

There is a new rev of the bench test. I had neglected to update the block rewards after the hard fork. That is now corrected.

The instructions for testing are the same, except that if you used the previous test you should delete any .aeone or AEONE directory before starting. You will need to git pull or re-clone the test branch from my github.

Once you get to block 1000 (about 15 minutes), it will switch over the to new PoW and a block target of 4 seconds. At this point you should see the difficulty increase by a factor of 8, your hash rate double (approximately -- depends on hardware), the per-block reward should increase by a factor of four (NEW), and of course the rate of blocks being created should slow down noticeably.

Also, I'm considering adding pool resistance (non-outsourceabie mining) to the roadmap. I like the idea of improved decentralization, but these ideas seem a bit half-baked still. But, I view this as an experimental coin where we are willing to take risks, so it may fit. What are your thoughts?

Specially after the spreadcoin debacle , I'd really like to see a successful approach to this. And I am all for Aeon to be a kind of testbed for cryptonotes.

Would you mind expanding a bit on the spreadcoin 'debacle'? I'm not entirely familiar with what happened.

Not a compiled one. This may work for building it.

Thanks for the test reports.

Development is chugging along, I'm fixing the unit tests before creating a new release.

Your question prompted me to have a look at their thread again and it actually looks like a FUD storm was the only thing that happened.
Basically, back in January a guy published a pool to mine spr. There was the ensuing troll assault that made it look like it was over.
But today the pool remains empty and the blocks are pretty spread out between miners.

Spread mining stats: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=945972.msg10359489#msg10359489

There are some doubts about the project as a whole (they recently added masternodes, they changed to a new moderated thread in response to premine accusations ), but the pool resistance part is apparently working.

Phoenix RC1 release candidate (for testing)

I've pushed a Phoenix release candidate to my repo for testing. This contains all of the code for the hard fork except that the fork height has been set arbitrarily high (block 5 million so it should never activate in practice).

The purpose of this test is to ensure that the new code continues to function properly on the existing network.

Instructions:

Quote
git clone git://github.com/iamsmooth/aeon phoenix-rc1
cd phoenix-rc1
git checkout -b phoenix-rc1 origin/phoenix-rc1
make

Start node normally!

Please report any problems or unusual observations (there are currently no known or expected problems).

Team positions available

Now that we're on track for the first release of the new roadmap, it is time to build a strong development team.

You do not need to be coder to join (although coding skills are certainly welcome). Other ways to contribute are:

Infrastructure - managing web hosting, seed nodes, build servers, etc.
Release engineering - build scripts, building binaries for various platforms, testing, etc.
Marketing - Reaching out to the world and deviling our message. Including writings, interviews, etc.
Artist - Web design, logos, infographics, promotional materials, etc.
Cryptography - Working to define, analyze, and document protocol improvements (and breaking them too!)
Other - If you have other ideas how to contribute, please submit them for consideration

In addition to public recognition, team members will receive a share of coins from the current and future donation fund with a vesting schedule. The details of this are tbd but be aware that short term involvement will not result in any award. On the other hand, if you want to work over a sustained period of time toward the success of this coin, and the coin is a success, the rewards may be substantial. The lead developer will be subject to the same vesting schedule.

Part time involvement is certainly welcome (and may well be typical, especially for now).

Please submit information about your background and qualifications to me by PM. Ability, experience, and integrity will all be highly valued so reputation, references, personal contacts both in and out of the crypto community, trust ratings, etc. are all relevant and should be included.

Call for donations

In the previous post I mention that donations will be part of an incentive plan for team members.

Now I want to address the holders of this coin and explain why you should (continue to) donate.

First, I want to say emphatically that I'm very appreciative of all the donations so far. The show of support is clear and overwhelming, and is a large part of why I have decided to continue working on AEON.

What that said...

We know there are 6.6 million coins "out there" somewhere. Of course many of those coins semi-lost, with keys largely forgotten on someone's drive or only on a backup, and will only be recovered (if ever) should the coin rise a lot in value. That's perfectly fine, and will serve to provide a bit of much needed price stability. A good number of coins are probably actually lost, and that's perfectly fine too. The reduced supply will increase the value of the remming coins if and when we establish some actual demand.

As for the rest of the coins, the ones actively held by those of you still here paying attention, I encourage you to consider donating a significant share of them to the donation fund for two reasons:

1. The donation fund will be largely static, and visible, as coins are held for vesting by team members. A small portion of the donation fund may be used for ongoing expenses, but the bulk will be long-term, public, and verifiable holdings. Unlike "hidden" coins, this will provide confidence for prospective adopters and investors that they won't be dumped. This will make it easier for us to grow as a community and as a coin. Likewise, if you are mining, consider directing some of your mined coins to the donation fund on an ongoing and/or automatic basis. For example, I have the seed node (a reasonably powerful server) mining and paying out 100% of the mined coins to the donations fund. This reduces effective inflation and also directly helps development: a double win for the (potential) coin value.

2. Let's face it, over the past several months, this has been a largely-abandoned largely-forgotten clone coin. Without significant and effective ongoing development, the value is going to zero (or alternately just staying at zero if you think that's what it is now). By donating a significant portion of your coins you tremendously increase the possibility that your remaining coins may someday be worth something, or a even worth a lot (though no guarantees of course).

With sufficient donations, we can have well-funded development, allowing us to effectively compete with those with those also well-funded "premined/instamined/ICO/IPO" coins (yuck!), while keeping everything purely voluntary and transparent.

Please consider making it happen!

There are some doubts about the project as a whole (they recently added masternodes, they changed to a new moderated thread in response to premine accusations ), but the pool resistance part is apparently working.

Almost right.

The Dev got attacked for using Darkcoin code when testing masternodes, as well as a shit storm of FUD from people saying pools were live. After the constant barrage he went MIA.

He created his own version of masternodes from scratch and private pools have not demonstrated absolute proof that they can overcome some hurdles he put in place.

There are some private pools, but the basic deterrent to stay away from pools is that all the miners can steal each others mined block rewards. Private pools are mostly based on trust. That's why most miners still prefer to go solo and it makes the economic model for pools that much tougher.

Quite a few people invested time, effort and money supporting the project. I got involved to help rescue the project with a bunch of others and a new non-moderated thread is now live and the project is being actively worked on by a group of devs. Some of those that lost money have seen a steady rise in the price and decided to leave, many have welcomed the rescue support and are participating.

Its not a million miles away from the story to AEON.

Back to the reason why I'm actually here.

As there are no exchanges - WTB some AEON, if anyone is interested in selling any. PM.
