It will be 4-6 more years before much more interest........don't worry about that..............try to build as tough and hard Shifts and Sifts while difficulty is low............

AMD Ryzen extra cores is perfect with 16 GB MINIMUM of Memory (Ram) and or AMD Threadripper

Regarding a dev, it would be great to get gjhiggins, he has added a lot of value to slimcoin even if not yet reflected at exchange.

@gjhiggins is currently unable to assist with Gapcoin development due to other time constraints.

Thanks for the kind words, PTG. I've been able to make some headway since then and am now in a position to lend a hand on the technical side but, as with BitcoinFX, there are limits to what I can undertake both in terms of technical skills and allocatable time. I can start by taking a look at the options for “moving forward”.

This post is really just an initial communication of interest and a delayed positive reponse to BFX' enquiry, I haven't yet had time to go through the code and abstract out the key differences that distinguish the Gapcoin codebase from its cloneparent but that is usually my first port of call when first building an understanding of the coin's functioning.

Completely independently, I can create an ACME adaptation for Gapcoin (each adaptation is in its own branch). ACME is a cheap'n'cheerful means of adding a fair amount of persistent value as just a Python web app that presents metadata obtained by i) the coin's JSON RPC API and ii) a SPARQL endpoint.

The wallet keeps an index of tx->address but not an index of address->tx, that functionality must be created elsewhere and in pursuit of that, ACME maps the blockchain to RDF and uses SPARQL (via a Fuseki endpoint) to obtain and present metadata which is not otherwise obtainable from the coins's RPC API.

The ACME web app itself can be (fairly trivially) extended to present additional metadata seen as pertinent to the coin's functioning. F'rinstance, I added a page for Datacoin, re-presenting the results of the listtopprimes RPC call ...

http://tessier.bel-epa.com:5059/main/chain/

In Slimcoin's case, I was able to cherry-pick a few commits from a more developed clonesibling codebase and enable OP_RETURN tx as standard, opening up an opportunity to use the data field to carry a few dozen bytes of metadata, with all the possibilities that brings. As the “wallet” is basically a transaction explorer scoped to the owner's addresses, it's a straightforward task to add a couple of supporting GUI units: a  data entry field for creating “inscriptions” containing metadata (currently limited to the wallet's “default” address) and a scrolling list of all the user's txs that have non-null OP_RETURN values (i.e. all the user's “inscriptions”).

I haven't even started to read through the entire up-thread history, so I'm not yet in a position to offer any comments let alone answer technical questions about the codebase.

Cheers

Thank you @gjhiggins, always interesting work and contributions! PM sent.

Also found myself with even less time to contribute to getting gapcoin really moving again, however quite a few good developers and math folks are now becoming increasingly interested in this project. I will be moving the set (tentative) milestones forward.

Gapcoin has remained a Math project first and crypto-currency second of course. Having a functional meta data explorer for prime gap records will be most excellent indeed!

Mr. Graham  thanks for your interest in the G.A.P. project we need every team member we can get.  Hopefully you could help commit changes on github? 

I uploaded the correct steps to github under issues which should help you build the Gap system under Ubuntu type systems to avoid starting a new thread which has been under discusion due to my lack of usage of github.  But I find it simple enough.  It took me a while to figure out how to login to Bitcointalk here with the new captcha safely.

I use Trisquel OS to build gap wallets.  I don't know what type OS you use, but debian should work, I have tried many OS outside of windows but not much success outside of Trisquel OS. 

Building the wallet would be the first step I imagine.

Can someone explain what these transactions are doing?  Why do they generate such large gap amounts.  Is that address really paying 18-30 Gap just in transaction fees?
