~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Strength In Numbers Foundation, a non-profit digital trust is pleased to announce the following news regarding its flagship crypto currency 2GIVE, the Bitcoin of charitable giving:

Bittrex.com has confirmed their 2GIVE wallet is online and we have their deposit Give* address in hand! Here is the schedule for the next 10 days:

Sunday May 1st - Sunday May 8th

~ 250M 2GIVE will begin flowing to Bittrex in 1M coin blocks randomly throughout the week creating an 10K block reward available to POW miners

Sunday May 8th:

Deposits of GIVE v1 accepted through midnite

Monday May 9th:

Bittrex will swap GIVE for 2GIVE

Tuesday May 10th:

Exchange opens for 2GIVE including deposits and withdrawals.

We have confirmed that Bittrex will NOT be staking coins -- in general storing your coins at an exchange is not a smart move anyway -- but here your ability to earn Proof of Stake (POS) interest rewards is all on you! Based on holding coins in your wallet for a minimum of 30 days

More information can be found at https://2Give.Info

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


2016.04.28

We have begun the "airdrop" with a current 100K block move among the SNF GiveCoin* wallets which results in a minimum 1,000 2GIVE block reward by way of the 1% mandatory minimum TXFEE.

Every wallet is eligible to compete via "setgenerate true" in the Help / Advanced Options / Console or from the command line.

We are currently pushing transactions every 30 minutes to help seed the future Proof of Stake eligibility in the network which will make the chain self-sufficient after the first 30 days.

The second Release Candidate (RC2) has been pushed to the site!  This release includes several small fixes including the "out of sync" error and for the first time includes the new Icons from Peacetime Propaganda

http://2give.info/#download



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2016.04.27

We are preparing to start the "AIRDROP" !!

We will be moving blocks of 100K coins around among the seed nodes shortly in preparation for the BIG SENDS to Bittrex.

Working through the final numbers now, but the plan is to put 1000 coin rewards (1% mandatory TXFEE) onto the chain for everyone to compete for by mining at a 15-30 minute interval (TBD) for the next 30 days so that when Proof of Stake eligibility kicks in, the chain will become self-sustaining with POS blocks popping at a reliable cadence.

The Bittrex "lottery"* will involve moving around 250 1M coinblocks to the exchange in preparation for the swap from V1 to V2 -- offering everyone the chance to compete for 100K coin rewards!!

* Using "lottery" tongue in cheek here -- no purchase necessary, just download the wallet software and turn on "setgenerate true" in the Advanced Console or via commandline if you're running a daemon version wink emoticon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2016.04.24

This is it! Release Candidate One (RC1) have been pushed to the main website Download link for both Mac & Windows:

http://2give.info/#download

NOTE: Microsoft A/V is giving a false positive on the .ZIP -- you can get the .EXE without a message here

http://2give.info/download/2GiveCoin-qt.exe

If you have previously participated in the beta program you'll need to delete the old data:

WINDOWS
C:\Users\"YOUR USERNAME"\AppData\Roaming\2GiveCoin

MAC OS X
/Users/"YOUR USERNAME"/Library/Application Support/2GiveCoin


There are a few minor cosmetic changes that we plan to make in the coming weeks, namely the icons and changing the GIVE moniker to 2GIVE for the currency.

In addition to the rewards planned for the multi-sends to Bittrex -- where everyone will have a chance to compete for the 1% of the Million coin blocks, we will be doing an "air drop" over the next month sending coins among the seed nodes with EXTRA rewards in the TXFEEs above and beyond the 1%.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2016.04.21

The website has been updated and the main site is bring branded as http://2GIVE.INFO

The beta testing period is over and wallets no longer connect to the seed node network.

The first 500 blocks have been mined according to the plan disclosed in http://bit.ly/2GiveCoin.  The coins are held in a globally distributed seed node network that generated the coins using special vanity "GiveCoin*" addresses.

Bittrex is almost ready to facilitate the exchange from V1 to V2.  Dates and times to be announced soon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The beta testing period is coming to an end.  You can still download and look at the new wallets at:

http://givecoin.io/download

If you fire it up and post your Give* address here, we'll send you 1,000 beta coins from the 100K test chain we created so that you can play around with the client.

We are waiting on Bittrex now to get the swap scheduled -- the final chain is being rebooted this weekend and all beta testers will be rewarded for their help <3

-dvd

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The design document has now been published and is open for comments:

http://bit.ly/2GiveCoin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


We have asked Bittrex to disable exchange of V1 on December 31st, 2015 after which we will conduct an equitable and transparent conversion to V2 in January for some "to be determined" window of time.

Details and Dates are forthcoming!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After months of research, coding and testing, we have concluded that it's not feasible to "bolt-on" POS to the existing blockchain that drives GIVE.

We have decided to enlist BITTREX to facilitate a COIN EXCHANGE on behalf of Strength in Numbers Foundation.

The current plan is to create a genesis block with the original 500M coins designed into the original chain specification (see http://givecoin.io) and then on a pro-rata share basis exchange GIVE for 2GIVE.

As of now we're approaching the 250M coins issued point, which means all holders of GIVE would receive a 2:1 split on their current holdings.

More details and dates will be announced shortly!

Thanks to our generous friends at Do A Bit Of Good we now have a new block explorer back online <3

http://explorer.2givecoin.info

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The coding has begun!  We're looking at a hybrid POS/POW approach that would include a minimum TXFEE that would reward POW.

We'll be looking for alpha/beta testers soon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are in discussions with the developers of http://tendermint.com to see if it would be a better approach to POS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy to report that we have formally engaged The Foundation Group (http://www.501c3.org/) to handle our 501.3c filing for "Strength in Numbers Foundation" the parent group that is sponsoring the development of Givecoin & IDCoins.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Quick update!  I have been invited to come on to the Ernest Hancock "Declare Your Independence" radio show tomorrow (Friday) morning 9AM EST/8AM CST

http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Program-Page.htm

I was talked about the work that Strength in Numbers Foundation is doing through Do a Bit of Good and 2Give!

http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Media/164483-2014-10-09-10-10-14-david-duccini-shawn-wilkinson-listen-live-on.htm

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As we prepare to re-launch and re-brand Givecoin 1.0 into 2Give, I would like to give the community a few hints of where were are headed.

We are going to put in place a true board of stakeholders to help with setting direction for the community.  It will be based on an open participation model centered on actual verifiable stake in the coinbase.

We have long watched ALTs like Karma(coin) -- dominated by miners and investors who pervert the spirit of the coin for their own selfish benefit.

We envision a new coinbase that provides a reward mechanism for SHARING the coin -- for expanding the economy of use and puts less emphasis on hoarding.

Givecoin does not want to be held -- Givecoin wants to be GIVEn.  And we want to reward you for that.

We have designs on a never before tried plan we like to call "2Give2Get" -- an idea that puts coins in new users hands and then rewards the person who gave it away!

If you want to join us on this revolutionary new way to expand charitable giving then you will need have Givecoin in order to Get 2Give.

Idea to print out paper wallets and give to waitstaff as part of tipping to raise awareness for Givecoin!

See last post

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=741714.msg8939424#msg8939424

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


The old Givecoin website went offline this week -- we were able to scramble and get a clone up at

http://2givecoin.info

We'll be working over the next few weeks to revamp and refresh the site to reflect the updated information, the new authoritative source of wallets and our new direction!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The move to a Proof of Stake based system is in full swing!

We anticipate announcing the official blockchain height that we will begin permitting staking transactions to the chain and an a sunset block number for POW, currently anticipated to be around 250M coins -- the halfway point such that the back-have of the coins will come from STAKEHOLDERS and a PERCENTAGE based TXFEE system to reward miners.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* RFC : Request For Comment *

We are exploring shifting away from the broken and currently exploited KGW emit function in favor of the Digishield implementation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Should we explore linking GIVE to KARMA ?  NO AT THIS TIME DUE TO "KARMA IN KHAOS"

*UPDATED*

We have just finished building a portable / installable Mac OS X Givecoin 1.0 Wallet!

http://bit.ly/Wv2jgD

Download the Givecoin-Qt.dmg.zip and then simply drag-n-drop the Givecoin-Qt app into the Applications folder link that will appear.

I have personally tested this on:

 +  Mac OS X 10.6.8 (32-bit build workstation)
 +  Mac OS X 10.7.5 (64-bit build workstartion) and my
 +  Mac OS X 10.9.4 (64-bit laptop) aka "Mavericks"

and it appears to work!

Let me know if you have any problems??

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HUGE round of gratitude to those of you who jumped in to help confirm that our first baseline build of the Givecoin 1.0 wallet works on both Windows 7 & 8 and that we now have our migration code base ready to build on.

We think we will have a baseline Mac OS X wallet ready for testing as early as today.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We just successfully built and did a send from a Windows-7 Qt version of the wallet!

This means our development lab at Strength in Numbers Foundation is fully operational!



Pretty boring in the big scheme of things, but we got our new Windows Development system online tonight and built our first command line wallet



Soliciting feedback on the idea of moving the TXFEE to be based on a percentage vs the flat/fixed fee model as employed in just about every other coin.

What do you think?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


* FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE *

The new 2Give wallet will be based on the new sleek modern design found in the updated CleanWaterCoin.

Don't know WATER?  Check it out https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=526513.0

Here's a picture showing that we have it working on Mac OS X !



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We gave away "Coins on a Stick" at the Minnesota State Fair this weekend as part of our sponsorship of the

http://expo2023.info

Bid to bring the Worlds Fair to the US in 2023.  We were there as part of a "Crptocurrency is the Future of Money" day




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


We are exploring spinning up an Electrum indexing server on behalf of Bitcoin users.  This is mainly an exercise to see what would be involved in adding 2Give support to the wallet as we believe it would accelerate the adoption of cryptocurrencies.

Because let's be honest -- downloading the whole blockchain is a problem that just gets harder everyday....

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Wednesday August 27th, 2014 doabitofgood.com in concert with its Strength in Numbers Foundation was able to successfully build and deploy a Clean Water Coin wallet on Mac OS X.

This is an important next step as we will be working now to merge the X11 and Givecoin specific code base in with the Proof-of-Stake work that was done in the recent migration of Clean Water Coin from POW to POS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Tuesday August 26th, 2014 we have obtained an a US Department of Treasury  / Internal Revenue Tax ID for the non profit.

We have engaged with The Foundation Group, a nationally recognized firm that specializes in the establishment of 501.3c non-profit organizations to handle filing the paperwork and process for us.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Friday August 22nd, 2014 we have legally formed the non-profit organization "Strength in Numbers Foundation"

http://mblsportal.sos.state.mn.us/Business/SearchDetails?filingGuid=709acaa6-f929-e411-bfac-001ec94ffe7f

Formal Press Release is forthcoming.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Friday August 15th, 2014 the official development of GiveCoin has been transferred to doabitofgood.com.

We have asked Bittrex to temporarily DISABLE the coinbase while we work regen the wallet and make adjustments to the blockchain reward system, shifting over to a primarily POS based chain and adjusting the KGW parameters.

We felt that this was an important first step versus outright delisting while we work to re-invigorate the community.

In the interest of full disclosure doabitofgood.com has steadily acquired a 15% stake in the chain since April, all through open market transactions on Bittrex in order to build up a credible "reserve currency" within our system.

http://explorer.givecoin.info/address/763mwuzDbRkPvKgUDYvs8um8jBHwgrGg7v

This should more than satisfy any concerns regarding the 10% pre-mine the base kicked off with as we have paid for use of GiveCoin as our default intra-site coinbase.

We are VERY optimistic about where we can go with 2Give as we are exploring ways to support merged-mining of other pro-social coins such as Clean Water Coin.  The primary idea is that we want to establish 2Give as the Bitcoin of charitable giving while also supporting other pro-social coinbases.

We want to take a moment to thank the original team members for their tireless efforts to launch GiveCoin 1.0:

A shout out to Michael Paszkiewicz, Daniel Korczak, Dylan McGowan and Juno Park (aka Givatoshi) for the generosity of your time and inspiring so many to do a bit of good!

We engaged a crypto-savvy attorney to help us sort through establishing a proper 501.3c that we will transfer development responsibility to once things are stable.

Thank you for your time, patience and support during this transition.

Please post any questions, comments or concerns here.   Let's have an open dialogue!

Sincerely,

David V Duccini
Executive Director

UPDATED

I'm happy to report out that doabitofgood.com was able to successfully rebuild Givecoind under Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" on a 32-bit iMac (the official Litecoin released wallet is built on this config)

The Givecoind is online and syncing with the network at the moment (up to 30K blocks so far).

Required a couple of tweaks to the makefile.osx that I've noted.

And one stupid bug in net.cpp

The Mac wallet is fully sync'd up and I've just run a test send of 1,000 coins from a cloud linux wallet to the Mac Wallet in the lab and it appears to have worked!

http://explorer.givecoin.info/tx/8f100fe0e6eb4a0c4e29296f1eb7002bd3b5f73d3d91b1cf8f4934323f21a171#i0

Once confirmed I'll send the coins back as part of exercising the daemon.

Next up?  Attempt to build a -QT version

Stay tuned!

Hit a roadblock this weekend trying to get Qt 4.8.6 to build the i386 libraries on the native 32-bit iMac -- ran out of memory while linking the webcore archive.

Now trying for a cross-compile from a 64-bit machine with an -arch i386 compile flag set.

Also, soliciting Windows 7/8 build advice -- the consensus suggests that cross-compiling it from a Ubuntu Linux MinGW environment is "less frustrating" than trying to do it on a native Windows box.

More as it happens!

Just put it out on Twitter a moment ago that doabitofgood.com now has a functioning Mac OS X build server capable of generating Qt based wallets!

Just have a config issue to deal with regarding header files and libraries, but the good news is that I was able to use brew to install qt-4 and then built Qt Creator 2.5 from source without error.  Even fires up nice and pretty ;-)

More as it happens!

PS: This also means we will be able to assist other coins in building Mac versions of their wallets!   PM me for details

I'm delighted to announce that just a few minutes ago we were able to successfully build a brand new Mac OS X GiveCoin-Qt wallet and have begun testing it!



Once tests are done and the build environment has been backedup/imaged (so that we can clone it) - we will start work on building out our Windows Development environment.

Once we can successfully demonstrate our ability to reliably produce production equivalent wallets we will begin enhancing the codebase for a Givecoin 2.0 aka "2Give" release.

In the meantime we appreciate the network hashpower you are giving the project <3

where I can download source code? git repo?

I forked it but have not checked anything in just yet since no changes have been made yet really (other than cleaning up the function calls to correctly cast datatypes in the X11 suite so that it would compile on Mac OS X Mavericks.

You can track it here:

https://github.com/LittleDuke/givecoin

ALL of the effort since last Friday when we announced taking over the development has focused on getting the required resources in place (sourcing a 32-bit iMac) -- getting 10.6.8 loaded, the right versions of XCode, the command-line tools, and all the library dependencies, including building Qt Creator from scratch.

We will now backup and clone the drive so that we can instantly spin up new/additional Mac developer workstations now that we have a stable build environment.

The initial goal is to demonstrate that we can rebuild the current / last released wallets and coind reliably and consistently.  We can now do that with linux coind and Mac OS X coind & desktop-qt wallets.  We have yet to re-produce the linux-qt or the Windows-qt wallets -- but that's mainly because we haven't tried yet ;-)

Once we can demonstrate that we will immediately begin doing the heavy lifting to fix the KGW implementation (which is being exploited at the moment) -- and migrate to a more Proof of Stake base model that encourages long term holders of the coin.

We are currently considering a new "minimum time-between-blocks" emit model that would only accept empty "generate" blocks +/- t-time from target emit for non-staking miners to get a more consistent cadence of coin generation in line with overall lifecycle.

Thanks for your support and interest in the continued development!

Just socialized out on Facebook a few minutes ago:



I have directed our corporate attorney to file the articles of incorporation to establish the non-profit "Strength in Numbers Foundation" to take over "ownership" of the GIVEcoin development.

We will immediately begin documentation preparation to establish it as a 501.3c.

Here's what's planned:

We intend to subject the code to rigorous review, including static and dynamic analysis, and a consistent and repeatable build system that can reliably produce wallets on supported platforms for the public trust.

We will create a certification system to assure that our endorsed coinbases are for the public benefit.

We will work to create the Web of Trust as envisioned by our http://www.idcoins.org research. The heart of that model being deeply rooted in PGP/GPG.

Press release is forthcoming...

We have now successfully built the Clean Water Coin Mac OS X Wallet and will be working to merge the X11 suite code and Givecoin code bases together to bring about 2Give !

CWC JUST went through the shift from POW to POS and its a great model to work from and a lot of experience on that team we can leverage.

We're currently exploring adding in a public-facing Electrum wallet peering server in support of Bitcoin (and Litecoin when they get around to it)

Our primary motivator is to get familiar with the system as we believe it is a better model for wallets and speed adoption of 2Give.

Anyone with experience positive or negative with Electrum would appreciate hearing from you!

We have now a tentative candidate successful build of the Clean Water Coin wallet on Mac OS X that is fully synchronized and have begun testing transactions in and out.

This is important and related as that coinbase recently went through a POW to POS conversion which we believe is the right model for 2GIVE.

All Mac wallet work to date has been performed on 32-bit based hardware per the hints out of the official Litecoin documentation.

We have just placed an order for a 64-bit development workstation that we will begin integrating into our build process to produce modern wallets.

This week our goal is to spin up our Linux based MinGW system to support cross-compiling the Windows binaries.

We have also been in contact with the original developers and they are going to see if they still have access to a Windows VM image that they used to produce the Windows wallets as a backup method for us.

All in all we are pleased with the progress we are making.  Once we can reliably deliver wallets on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X we plan on adjusting the KGW timing function to fix the emit cadence as well as set a block height for accepting POS blocks as well as a sunset height on POW.

We are providing a weekly status to Bittrex to keep the coin listed but disabled while we work to update the code.
