so we be able to get skull and folding coin both?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

9). You're done Smiley Tokens will be paid out weekly depending on how you have done.

But this isn't really mining at all, is it? There's nothing recorded as proof-of-work and no coin base claim.  It's just a manual giveaway of skull coin based on folding@home metrics.

I agree that it's different and not exactly like other coin proof-of-work distributions, but the main idea and goals are the same. You provide a service(your computing power) and are rewarded for that service(tokens/coins).

You are provided with points from Folding@Home(pool) to keep track(record as proof-of-work) of how much you currently have. That is then converted to "SkullCoin" or a set amount is divided by amount of work.

We do not giveaway "SkullCoin" for free beyond the "200 free reddit giveaway" and that's to get you familiar with the counterwallet.

--

In my opinion proof-of-work via folding@home is better in many ways than normal/conventional metrics. First of all, the software that they use has been improved on and works great! Anyone can set it up quickly and simply(auto recognizes your gpu's). Secondly, the energy you consume to provide the work(mining) goes toward a good cause(folding proteins).

If all coins were more efficient we could make use of that waste to do something meaningful. Mining just to give rank of coin distribution is wasteful. Current & future technologies will allow coin rank distribution while also making good use of the work that's put-in to provide those results. It's up to us to make use of those technologies. More efficient systems usually always win in the long run(end).

The SC Minecraft Game is finished ..



The most opportune time to get coins is @ launch. After the first hour it only gets harder.

My point (which I've brought up with quite a few other coin devs, now, as well) is that this mechanism cannot rightly be called a proof, and so it cannot predicate a proof of work.  Right now, your coin actually proves very little because the protocols it employs require some "unreasonable" assumptions.  (I've discussed those sorts of assumptions at length elsewhere, so I won't go into detail again here unless it is really necessary.)

A crypto-currency that can't prove much can't be worth much.  A crypto-currency that claims to be using some particular proof mechanic (like proof-of-work) but can't actually demonstrate validity of proof is simply confused at best and lying at worst.

I'm really excited to see these gaming related crypto-currencies, but am very unsettled that many seem to misunderstand what actually comprises a proof, let alone a functioning crypto-currency.  (Which is a network of proof coordination, by definition.)

You crypto coin could be great if only you actually turned it into a crypto coin.  If you don't, then either you are confused about what a crypto coin is and yours will fail because it simply isn't one, or you are trying to part fools from their money.  I really hope neither of these ends up being the case.

"SkullCoin" runs on and is secured by the bitcoin blockchain which is proof-of-work and a crypto-currency. The "SkullCoin" folding@home mining pool provides all the information you need to keep track of payouts and be sure that you are getting what you deserve. This is a proof-of-work system. To say that one proof of work system is better than another is your opinion and has no substantiating proof behind any claims.

It seams to me that you are stuck on doing things only one way and anyone who tries something different is wrong.

To say that this is not a crpto coin and that I may be lying and am confused is all "FUD" and not worth responding or refuting. You can believe anything you want just have proof when bringing up assumption's if you want to be taken seriously.

SC Minecraft (srv 1)
Treasures will have "5000 SKUL" each and a total of "20" will be randomly placed on the map at launch.

A treasure with $5-$10 in BTC will also be included.

This is true, but this is a separate proof-of-work mining from what you are proposing as a proof-of-work mining.  The hash collisions being computed by the BTC network certainly do constitute proofs.  This has nothing to do with the context at hand, however.

Quote
The "SkullCoin" folding@home mining pool provides all the information you need to keep track of payouts and be sure that you are getting what you deserve. This is a proof-of-work system.

This might be where you are confused.  A proof, in the formal sense used in the notion of "proof of work," must be able to be independently verified as satisfied.  One wishing to confirm the validity of the proof must be able to re-trace all of the steps from the assumptions made to the conclusion drawn.  If one cannot resolve an assertion stack for it, it is not a proof.  If one cannot construct an SMT solver for it, it is not a proof.

Quote
To say that one proof of work system is better than another is your opinion and has no substantiating proof behind any claims.

I am not saying that one proof of work system is better than another.  I am saying that what you have been calling a proof of work system is not a proof of work system.  Whether or not a proof holds is not a matter of opinion, either the proof holds and is factual or else the proof was not a proof to begin with.  Further, once a proof is shown to hold then either no external influence can change it's validity or else it was never really true that the proof held to begin with.

The problem is that you've taken proof-of-work and removed some of the initial assumptions/axioms by re-centralizing an authority on verification!

I'll give you an example.  Let's hypothesize that the Stanford servers get hit by a meteor tomorrow.  Does the "proof" offered over the work done still hold, then?  Can it be independently validated?

There is an unreasonably large set of (fatal) assumptions that get re-introduced into the "proof" when you put the onus of authentication back onto a single entity like this.

What if hackers and griefers control the team stats just like they controlled your Roblox servers?

What if the operator of those Stanford servers, or even some night staff kid in the data-center NOC, sees an opportunity for "free money" and just changes some numbers in their database to make fake work?

What if someone just hacks you and your networks and fakes the team stats for you so you see different numbers from the rest of the world, and send out coins based on incorrect data?  Then you'd have an intended proof which does not hold prima facie but coins already distributed based upon it! (Something that cannot ever happen with a coin base claim in a correct proof-of-work implementation.)  Similarly, what if you just make a mistake (you're only human) and fat finger in an additional zero or two on a distribution?  The subsidy relation breaks down in a heartbeat and again the intended proof falls over at the axioms.

You cannot have a proof that starts with "So assume that this large set of random people on the internet are honest and also assume that this large set of routers and servers have not been compromised and then assume this manual process goes correctly every single time."  Your QED quickly become intractable.

Quote
It seams to me that you are stuck on doing things only one way and anyone who tries something different is wrong.

Yes, I am "stuck" on not calling something that cannot be independently validated as satisfying it's constraints a proof.  Silly me, wanting things claimed as facts to be evidently factual, particularly when they define a seigniorage on a currency I might use.

Quote
To say that this is not a crpto coin and that I may be lying and am confused is all "FUD" and not worth responding or refuting.

If so, then why respond and refute it?  If your proof really did stand on it's own as a proof, I'd agree that you'd have to do little but laugh at me and point to the QED.

This is where I start to worry whether you are really so confused or if the lady dost protest too much.

I am afraid that the uncertainty of the nature of your proofs is creating doubt.  I assure you I am no troll or "FUD"der.  I think anyone who knows my posts would attest.

Nothing is final but here is what I have inline for collective distribution.

    200,000 SKULL each week from in-game treasure hunts
+  200,000 SKULL each week from mining (divided based on amount of work)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     400,000 per week total


This will go on until the remaining coins are distributed (Total 10,000,000).

Once these coins are distributed we will create the rest of the coins for the remaining two years of PoQ in-game (200k a week) distribution and lock the "SkullCoin" account so that no more can be created.

The remaining 19.2 million coins will be put into a MutiSig wallet(counterwallet should have this functionality by then) held by the "SkullCoin" association members. 200,000 SKULL will be accessed weekly for in-game treasure hunt distributions.

this cost high cost electricity?

My rigs use far less electricity and produce far less heat than when scrypt mining.

I leave it on medium and it never slows down my computer while working.

Ya, I was wondering if you were going to make it.

Maybe I will stop doing ninja until we get more people.
