I don't know much about freicoin, but I don't really believe fixed monetary base because that will limit the economy expansion, and deflation tendency will encourage hoarding of the currency.



My understanding of bitcoin is that it is more than a currency: it is also a transaction processing network.
When one buys bitcoins, one is also buying shares in this new network (take a look at the the market cap of transaction network companies).
People can hold the shares and trade them: hoarding is not a problem as long as there is liquidity.
Bitcoins can be used as a meta-currency to process transactions in any currency.
Deflation is a problem for fiat money not for shares in a small cap !

Deflation could be a problem if bitcoins become widely used.
Imagine if a country like panama or zimbawe (that don't have their own currency) start to use bitcoin as their favorite currency (instead of the USD). Deflation could be devastating for them.
But sure deflation is far more dangerous with (supra) national currencies that are monopolies.

SolidCoin is kicking some ass .... 1 TeraHash/sec

 ... miners seem to like the 12 hour difficulty adjustment algorithm.

Please, let's sumarize the currency si that I can add it to the list. I've heard that it really has some improvements. But I don't think that reducing the time beteween blocks it's a goood thing. Please, explain. Why do you think it is kicking asses?

I was updating the thread for some time, but I'm not doing it anymore. Most of it are obsolete proposals.

Freicoin is in beta4 and to be launched before the end of the year. Should I include it in the wiki?
If you want to do it, this is the main page: http://freico.in/
Here the forum: http://www.freicoin.org/
code: https://github.com/freicoin/freicoin

Any significant or semi-significant coin can be included in the wiki, why not.
(Assuming it's at least at beta level)

Freicoin represents a significant economic improvement over bitcoin in my opinion. And as said is almost complete. maaku has even coded a pool for it and we're launching this year.
Thank you, I'll find the time to write something.
