The Testnet for the Zerocoin Implementation starts on 15th of October. For those who don't know, Zerocoin is a technology that is not yet implemented in any other Cryptocurrency, it's for full anonimity and nothing like Coinjoin or Ring Signatures (Cryptonote).

Please also check the Github under Anoncoin "ZC" branch. To see the coding, it's all open source, 14 days delayed because of copycats.

Feel free to post your thoughts

I'm keen on other anonymous technologies, but as of now Zerocoin is the most advanced one, it took about 8 core years to create the keys btw.

As I promised two weeks ago, here is an estimate for completion of Zerocoin-in-Anoncoin that I feel has a very high chance of being met (a "hard deadline").

By October 15, I'll have Zerocoin integration in "alpha" state, and on a testnet for anybody to try.

By November 1, I'll have Zerocoin in mainnet, which means you can use the ANC you have now to mint and spend zerocoins. It will still be in "beta", meaning you should pay attention to our website, IRC, and our bitcointalk.org thread for security updates to the wallet and anoncoind; this is especially important if you are a miner or running a relay node.

I realized that I have made deadlines in the past that were not met. I put a lot of thought into the above deadlines and I know that they can be met. Just as a reminder, I'm working full-time on Zerocoin until at least October 1, and possibly after depending on funding.

Other upcoming dates:

September 15: the RSA UFO project ends, participants are rewarded, and the server source is released to our Github.

September 17: the first Zerocoin commits get pushed to our Github (Anoncoin/anoncoin, "zc" branch). As I said before, the public Github will lag 2 weeks behind active development in our private repository; this is to make things more difficult for copycat coins.
