News:
  • Our seventh Kimocoin auction is over.
  • A new wallet has been released that changes our currency code from KMC to KIMO and moves the decimal so that 1000 KMC = 1 KIMO.  This will allow us to trade in BTC.  Please download it.
  • We have a new logo.
  • Due to an error in the block reward code, we had to hard fork at block 150300 on 7/14.  You must update your wallet.  Do not try to use the old one, it will not work. All coins are safe.

Kimocoin has a new dev team.  We have active development and a growing international community.  We are now over half way through the subsidy decline phase.  There is still time for new miners to collect a nice part of the distribution, but the reward is falling with every block.  We should reach the end of the subsidy decline phase on August 14th, after which the block reward will be fixed at 5 KIMO forever.  Kimocoin offers one of the best values in crypto, we are more profitable to mine than anything and yet our miners are holding because we know the value will rise as block subsidy falls.  In June we held a KIMO only auction for a brand new Intel SSD.  In July we auctioned off a brand new 500GB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive.  We are planning more such promotions and events.  Join us and be sure to ask how you can contribute to our growth and success.

Wallet Download:
We had a hard fork on 7/14/14 at block 150300 due to an error in the original KimoCoin code.  There was a mandatory wallet update, the original wallet will no longer work.

This new topic is one good step to go forward.

As ltcnim opinion, also my opinion is that coin logo is not at all good.

It is important to understand the psychology of perception and the way in which the human subconscious impressive image of the logo is formed. It is not easy and need special skills.

The current design is somehow disharmonious and blue. It somehow have an effect as well as the colors, but also figure in the down-slope lines. The whole pattern is as in the wrong direction. The lines go from left to right downward. The broad pattern somehow mixed confused. It's a bit kind of like a child would be drawn by a ruler without the knowledge of what really wants to draw. Simply. The whole is depressing. Figure shows in some way, as if that goes down. But, This is my individual opinion and there may be also opposite opinions.  (oh this kind of things are difficult to translate by google)

But, it must also be noted that, for example, I do not have a logo design adequate skills. a good logo is not simple especially when taken into account in a global world other than our own culture.


I believe that this coin have better future than history. This is why I will continue mining with some mining power.


This week monday, 23th June,  I win auction about Intel 120GB SSD drive and paid using KMC directly.
It have not yet arrived due to long distance but jacob019 have done very fast shipment and all looks perfect in this time.  Tracking information is as predicted. After it arrive I will give final report about this.

Good news with this new thread.
Still mining this lovely coin Smiley

And, the auction showed how people get simulated to buy kimocoin when we talk about real-life stuff, like SDD or other computer stuff. So, hope jacob will find a way to organize more auctions Smiley

It seems to fail to connect to the coin network. It finds 7 peers, but fails to connect to all of them. Stale peers ?

Edit: also, your post says "Solo mining with the wallet is the preferred method of mining.", but the mining link you give says "CPU Solo mine with wallet (Not recommended!)". Hrrhhmmm ?

Thanks for the feedback.  When we update the wallet I will add new seed nodes. Meanwhile open the debug console and enter the following:
Code:
addnode kimocoin.com add
addnode kmc.1js.us add
I added this information to the OP.

About solo mining, CPU mining is not recommended but you can still use the wallet to solo GPU mine with vertminer.  It's the best way to mine, but it's more difficult to set up and has higher variance.

you should definately get rid of the old logo. it's one of the worst coin logo's ever  Lips sealed

I really agree with you guys.  It's a terrible logo.  My design skills are terrible, I don't think I'm the right person to fix it.  I might be able to find one I like and edit it, but we would be much better off if we can find someone who can design a nice logo for us.  I would then update the website, the OP, and the wallet with the new logo.  I do like the yellow and black colors though.  I would offer a 5M KMC bounty if anyone can make a nice one.

I have not any relatioship with this coin former developers and not with current dev team. I'm just only one who continue mining and using this coin. Only later I can see if this was right decision. I can not loose anything but electric and part of mining hardware lifetime. But as gambling it may also lead to something useful for me.
Remember that you can now mine with good profit. Ater some time it is more difficult due to coin block reward designed decay.

I've contacted a couple designers to get a quote for a new logo design. I'm willing to pay something for it, not sure how much.

Never heared of this. If it was launched by April the first, then it should at least be on bittrex atm.
