News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Project Z Video Overview



Emerald Coin was originally launched June 16, 2013. The original developer, picasso (Original Thread), abandoned the project after a few months. The community stepped in and has kept the currency alive. This thread was created as a launching point for the next step of that community driven re-birth.

Being that the community is looking to continue this coin, we thought it best to re-brand the currency. We thought it important to keep Emerald as part of the name and the ticker symbol EMD, but we also felt the need to distance ourselves from the original developer. The name, Emerald Crypto, was devised so as to keep the old Emerald alive, but show that it is being developed into something other than just another alt-coin.

We are looking to develop Emerald Crypto into a currency that has real world uses. One that is backed by applications and marketing to make it easily adaptable to business markets both large and small.

Emerald, at it's inception, had one of the fastest block times of any currency. While there will be changes made to the structure of the coin in the future, it's basic features: block times, coins per block and total coins are not planned to be changed.

If you are having trouble with your wallet syncing, go to debug window, then console in wallet. Type getpeerinfo in the command line and look at the peers you are connected to. Any peer listed with  "version": 70002 or 60002 and "subver": "/Emerald:V0.8.7.600/" or "/Satoshi:0.8.6.1/" should be on the right chain.

The source has been updated with more checkpoints and is available to download now (v8.6.1). Updated windows client now available. This is a mandatory!

The nodes listed below are on the correct chain. If you are having trouble syncing past the fork block (and are updated to v8.2.1 or higher) try adding one or all of these nodes to your config file.

addnode=108.61.10.90
addnode=82.200.205.30
addnode=65.102.140.116
addnode=105.103.136.130
addnode=46.252.49.204
addnode=151.80.97.28
addnode=176.50.170.49
addnode=46.105.63.132
addnode=46.254.11.158

Or you can add this config file... Be sure and change the **Yourusername** and **Yourpassword** to something unique and save it as Emerald.conf and not a .txt file.


Code:
listen=1
daemon=1
server=1
rpcuser=**Yourusername**
rpcpassword=**Yourpassword**

Thanks for the well-wishes. We have a long way to go, but Emerald is a good coin and very much worth developing.

In the interest of transparency, the community members involved in the development of EMD are (as of this writing): GWCalvert (me), lesni4ok and m0gliE.

I am a web developer, by trade, specializing in WordPress. Lesnik (lesni4ok) did the latest source update and Windows wallet. m0gliE has been active in the community for a long time and done much with keeping the coin alive and helping out other users with problems. If anyone else is interested in joining the team; send a PM.

Being that I created a new account for this thread, there is a time limit imposed between posts. So, I may be combining several replies/announcements in single posts.

Any pool ops, game sites, faucet providers, etc that wish to include EMD, send a PM and we will include you in the OP when you are set up. BCT does not allow you to post your announcements in the main thread any longer.

More to come... soon.

Looking forward to seeing more! You certainly have a decent foundation to begin from.

The coin design is good, except for the difficulty schedule. Then again, 14 months ago there were no scrypt asics to contend with.

Definitely a good foundation to start with. Just needs a little tweaking of the code, development of apps and services, and a little marketing. All of which are coming soon.

Thanks for the support.

Dig that old wallet out. Download the latest version and replace the wallet.dat with your old one.

If you have any trouble with the wallet syncing, try adding some of the nodes above. The first three or four in the list are usually active in my peer list. Will try to add a hard-coded node or two in the next wallet update.

In addition, the coin has a very beautiful name and always it is well traded. This means that it has never been abandoned by the community.

Good luck with Takeover!

Good luck for the takeover, need to add new stuff in the coin, it's too old...

EMD trading has remained fairly active even without development. The quick block times and low number of coins per block make it an appealing investment. Multipool action has driven the price down, recently; but, with improvements to the code and development to support the coin, that all should be changing, soon.

EMD is still easy to mine, so it should appeal to people with smaller hash rates. The coin-base pool, the dedicated node at hash-for-coins and both of the p2pools find blocks regularly, even with lower hash rates. There are also several solo-miners out there finding blocks.

The coin is too old? Well I suppose you do not like BTC or LTC, either.  Grin

There will be new features, apps and services available for EMD as we get more into the development. The main focus at this point is getting the core updated to include the new difficulty schedule. The apps, services and real world uses are being worked on, but the EMD core is what needs to be fixed first.

Thanks for the support!

We have a block explorer once again! We were only without one for a few days, but I sure did miss having one...

We also have a new faucet! I personally sent 10K EMD to the faucet. Any of you "whales" out there with lots of EMD should consider sending a few, too.

Unfortunately, BCT will not allow my newbie account to link to the [dot] tk domains... WTH???

The addresses of the block explorer and faucet are in the OP. Copy and paste, then replace the [dot] with a .    Wink I'll set up a redirect later so that we can link directly to them...

Kind of like trying to post BCT links from Twitter...  Grin

There should be a new MPOS pool coming online in the next couple of days. The pool op is tied up, at the moment, with another project. I'll post the link in the OP when it is live.

Lastly, I'll be finishing up the WP_Emerald plugin today and should have a link to it posted by this evening. You can see a slightly modified version of it running on the main Emerald Crypto website.

Just the beginning, folks! Plenty more to come!

I want to give one piece of advice for new developers.

You need to do hardfork and start a new blockchain. Since synchronization of 1.5mln blocks takes a lot of time for beginners. Old coins can be swapped for new at rate of 1:1 through the exchange or using a privatekeys.

Emerald_V2 New coin = New prices. Just look at the HyperStake...

Emerald_V2 New coin = New prices. Just look at the HyperStake...

That would be starting a "new" coin not doing a hardfork... EMD has been around for a long time, so there would be several people who are still holding coins from earlier mining that may not get word and lose their coins when a swap was done. Then there are always the questions and accusations about what happened to the extra coins that nobody redeemed their old coins for...

m0gliE created a bootstrap file earlier, that could be downloaded and added to a new wallet which drastically reduced the time it took to download the blockchain through the wallet. After we get the new code ready and a wallet released with the fork in it, we will create a new bootstrap file, to help out with the sync times.

*Trumpets Blare*  Announcement!

WP_Emerald is now available for download. The link from the OP takes you to a page with instructions and the download link. Enjoy!

More to come!

I'll be out for most of the weekend. It's birthday week... Sure hope the next 50 go by a little slower...  Wink

Will check in here when I can to answer any questions and/or announce any new developments.

Have been working on the core code the past couple of days. Would like to get it all wrapped up in the next week or so, and get the new wallets out. Will need to do some conferencing with the other dev team members, to finalize the details.

After the core update, I will be focusing my time on creating a digital marketplace for EMD. Have a few other plans... more coming soon!

There is no linux "client". For now, you can build it from the source.

We plan to have clients for Windows, MacOSX, and Linux with the new core release.

Although it was a birthday weekend; I have been busy working on the Emerald Core. The new code is finished!... Hopefully...  Wink

I will be compiling a new wallet today and doing some testing to be sure that the fork to a new difficulty schedule will be smooth. The planned fork is for block 1600000. Under perfect conditions, that would be 11 days from today. But as the amount of blocks being found has been, roughly, half of the  scheduled amount; it should make the fork occur somewhere during the first week in September. This gives the exchanges, pools, etc plenty of time to get the new source compiled and up and running.

We chose to go with DGW3 for the difficulty adjustment. This should make it unprofitable for multipools to jump on and grab 200 or so blocks at a time. There may still be some action, but it should be limited to just a few blocks, as the difficulty adjusts with each new block instead of every 180. I also added another checkpoint and upgraded the openssl to the latest version (1.0.1i).

I think everyone will like the new wallet. It has been given a bit of a new look that makes it stand out from most other standard QT's. I will try to post some screenshots in the next day or two. The new wallet should be available for download by Thursday, if not sooner. With this release we will only have a windows wallet to begin with. The MacOSX and Linux wallets will be coming later.

After the fork there will be another wallet coming with more features. This wallet will be based on the latest Bitcoin core (9.2.1). This will be a minor upgrade (code wise), but should be a much better wallet, feature wise. We plan to have a couple of seed-nodes hard-coded into that release, so that syncing will never be an issue.

The OP will be updated to reflect this and other new information in the next few days. Much more still to come!  Grin
