I don't think you can sell them.

It was worth a shot I suppose. Guess I'll just wait on more to be added.

Hi,
sorry it took me so long to get back here Wink

Well, shares..
As somewhere discussed earlier these shares can be bought only in limited amounts with virtual coins. On every 1st of a month those shares will be removed from a users account and made available again. For those stocks though users will get their share of global upgrade and trade fees - as to encourage trading and upgrading of course.

Right now shares are not tradable but i think i will somehow implement that.. also i will impose a maximuma mount of shares per user.. maybe.

About the proposals: A calculator is.. hard to do. As many people still mine solo it would be hard to get a somewhat useful value from a calculator.. i can only give you odds, nothing better.

Well, its sort of "deflation" method - the coins paid for it are gone - and it should encourage trading.. i just hope that will work Wink

Isn't that what every calculator for bitcoin gives you anyway? Then at least you can get a general idea of how much of a chance you have at solving a block.

Currently preparing the first "dividend" Wink

As of now there is a pot of 0.348469 availabel, consisting of trade fees and global upgrade fees (i hope for the next month for this to be more :0/)
5000 Shares have been sold so at this moment 1 share is worth 0.0000696938 BTC

I will do the payouts tonight by hand (by hand as in running the script myself) to see that everything works and then put it into my cronjob list.

Shares paid.


--------------------------

Upcoming changes:
 - As the vote about nonasic chains was unconclusive yet slightly moved towards the Yes side i will postpone that idea for a while:

    Add vCPU only chains?
                 Yes    7 (53.8%)
                  No    6 (46.2%)

 - Shares will be automatically paid out from now every last day of the month at 1pm CET
 - More to come...

---------------------------

Congratulations to our 300th User Smiley

Hi,
The recent increase of Bitcoin's value - we made it back above $10! - forced me to lower the prices for ingame purchases. Since the game's prices were made to work at about $5 per Bitcoin i have now reduced all prices by 50% to reflect the new price niveau. I will reserve the right, of course, to change this back if the price drops again. Furthermore i think about adjusting my prices from now on automatically to the current BTC/USD price.. but this might take a while still.

Also congratulations to those chosen few who got a dividend paid in BTC bought with their virtual coins :0) I am glad that that worked.
You can increase the dividend by trading and by buying global upgrades in game.
 
Thats it for today.




Talking about affiliate links now.. any ideas for those? Wink

2 Minor changes:
Due to the increased demand i have changed the Global Hashing system slightly. For the same amount of BTC you get 5x the global hash upgrade. That way it is ensured that you can actually upgrade enough for larger vASICS..

Due to that i have increaded the global hash limit by hand to match the new settings. So users who upgraded yesterday dont have a disadvantage.

Hi,
After last weeks scheduled maintainance the game runs now for one week straight again and there is no trace of any problems i had on the old setup, even more - i was able to 'speed up' block finding again to 1s intervals without the server to choke every now and then. So the game is back online and from the technical point of view it is working better as ever.
The current instability of the Bitcoin price gives me some headache. The game was tuned towards a price of $5 per 1BTC but when i think of the past days everything seemed possible as price for 1BTC. Therefore i keep my current pricing scheme, which is basically aimed at 1BTC = $10. That way all items keep their current price until the price of bitcoins has somewhat stabilized again. Then i will try to assign new, fitting prices.

Development: Development of Virtualminer has to be stopped till September 26 since i will be on an excavation until then and not having any internet connection or access to the game.

Please note that if you find bugs in that time you can of course send me private messages via Bitcointalk, but i will be unresponsive for most of the time.

About some rumors: Yes, i am currently working on a second project (altcoinexchange.com) which is basically my approach to a real life exchange for altcoins and bitcoins, but i dont plan on selling or dropping virtualminer anytime soon. It is interestering what kind of stories i have so far heard and no, Virtualminer is going to be kept up to date and alive. But it IS true, that i currently put aa bit more effort into altcoinexchange.com due to the simple fact that it is a new project for me and virtualminer runs stable with no bigger bugs known to me that have to be fixed or features that i am missing. That said i would like to ask you to register at altcoinexchange.com to help me in the debugging times. Currently it is running in 'Alpha' mode with no real deposits or withdraws just to test features and find bugs.
 
Thats it for today.
   
Cheers
