Thanks for all the info. Is there any actual use for "gaps". i.e. having a record of all of them etc. I couldn't find any "tangible" use. I like coins that actually provide something, especially when I can mine with just an old computer. 3 blocks now so that's fun.

The original developer no longer being with us became a sticking point, although it is certainly possible to move forward.
That almost always ends up killing a coin. People want a "leader", especially for others to do everything for them while they sit back and make money while crying about how nothing is happening.

Gapcoin was launched almost during peek altcoin season
That may be why I missed it. So many coming out it was hard to keep track of them all.

We have been delisted from exchanges without any real reason other than a lack of trading volume and development.

ICO's and scam projects have been seemingly more attractive to 'investors'.
Yep. Just goes to show people are only here to make money.

Not everyone. I gave up on making profit a long time ago lol. I prefer to support coins with causes I support. Folding @ home is a good example, so is this coin. I love tinkering around with different coins anyway. This is math - so I'm naturally interested.

"But how are prime gaps useful?

Prime numbers are interesting for lots of mathematicians around the globe, and they're also important to every day cryptography (see RSA).

Researches about prime gaps could not only lead to new breakthroughs in the bounded gap, it may also help proving the Twin Prime Conjecture and maybe even the millennium problem, the Riemann hypothesis. Who knows? "

50 merit awarded, per pro (hope you don't mind).

FWIW, I've spent some time with the Gapcoin source code, upgrading it to use OpenSSL 1.1 (so it now compiles on contemporary Linux versions). I took the liberty of reverting the egregious irrelevant changes to the source code caused by j0nn9's over-eager regexp (https://github.com/gjhiggins/gapcoin/commit/551b27b55f9360d5788c047573f41122ddbfb53e) because only a few delicate changes are actually needed to do the job and there are distinct benefits from having a close match, not least in terms of making it easier to take advantage of upstream developments. In consequence, I was able to merge the Bitcoin Core 0.9.3 and Bitcoin Core 0.9.4 upstream releases (https://github.com/gjhiggins/gapcoin/commits/v0.9.3-gap). This work has been done in a separate branch "v0.9.3-gap" in my own forked repository on Github - https://github.com/gjhiggins/gapcoin/tree/v0.9.3-gap

Also, I am working on some GUI improvements/enhancements, again in a separate branch which I hope to commit to the repository towards the end of the week.

Cheers

Thanks Graham!

Hopefully you have been mining Gapcoin along the way?

I will take a look and try spinning up an instance or two from your latest repo. before adding it to the website.

https://gapcoin.club

...

I must also find the time to look again at the Slimcoin thread, developments and my old wallet.dat's !

Kindest Regards,

Not thus far - I'm confined to a i7 laptop atm and given it's an expensive Dell XPS 15 9560, I'd rather buy than fry.

It should work out of the box, I've even forked the Gapcoin-PoWCore repos so's I can fix the constexpr issue which was preventing successful compilation.

Assuming the requisite packages are installed according to build-unix.md (https://github.com/gjhiggins/gapcoin/blob/v0.9.3-gap/doc/build-unix.md#to-build-from-git), the following should work out of the box for anyone wanting a GUI client on one of the current Ubuntu-flavoured distros:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
HERE=`pwd`
git submodule init
git submodule update
${HERE}/autogen.sh
${HERE}/configure --with-incompatible-bdb --with-gui --with-miniupnpc --with-qrencode --disable-tests
make

The next significant task is to get the tests working (some of the test fixtures are Bitcoin-specific and are bound to fail).

You've not missed much. And Slimcoin, like Peercoin, remains PoS v1 which means you don't need the wallet open all the time to stake, just fire it up and wait while it grinds through the stakes.

Good stuff! Thanks!

Please add your Gapcoin address somewhere on the repository, as I've allocated some coins for continuing development etc.,

It will probably take me a week or so to get around to trying all of this though.

I can do compiles, binaries, releases and such if necessary, however I tend to steer clear of most development as I'm well aware that other folks are much much more competent over myself in this regard.

Anyhow, this should undoubtably help Gapcoin with new and more major exchange listings moving forward. I also might be making progress in garnering some new interest from some mathematicians with a more firm understanding of prime gaps relative to cryptocurrency and Bitcoin etc.,

I look forward to continuing to support this growing community and related Gapcoin projects as we finally progress ...

I don't see any reason (aside from peer review) as to why Gapcoin shouldn't eventually share a similar (or higher) market cap to say Litecoin. Gapcoin has a better economic model for starters and that's before we start talking Useful-Proof-of-Work and breaking world records.

Very depressing times for both Riecoin and Gapcoin :| .

You might try to contact Guytp to get Gapcoin listed in Zapple, and I am sure that XpoolX would gladly open a Gapcoin pool (and at the same time list the coin in XequineX).

Things might be looking up !

Thanks for the recommendations, I intend to follow up on them soon.

This one is most certainly a fine piece of crypto art ...

- https://www.artforcrypto.com/physical/redeye



"Since getting on the blockchain and crypto train Vesa did not sleep properly for four months. Apparently this is a common thing among people who get sucked into the vortex of it all.   So many different opportunities become available, financial fates are changed, hope in the human endeavour stored but also many nefarious traps to be aware of. It's like the first day of school when you realize the environment is much larger than the initial premise of learning about the subjects. This piece is intended for those who recognise the red eye factor. No matter what angle you approach it from."

Shame about the price tag though.

I assert that John Allen Frey was the original developer of Gapcoin


Your assertion may has been proven wrong since j0nn9 (Jonny Frey) has been active on bitcointalk on March 23, 2018! Also he (or his script) has updated http://gapcoin.org/primegaps-length.php on September 10, 2019!


At this 5th year milestone, I would like to thank Jonny and all the supporters of the GapCoin project. New record prime gaps await us ahead!
 

It's all rather odd indeed, I agree.

Despite my attempts to contact those potentially involved, no one has come forward, yet !

The gapcoin.org website remains hosted and clearly someone still has access to update it, perhaps it's Dr. Thomas R. Nicely ?

Clearly whoever is updating the site has more interest in the prime gaps over markets and value etc., Notice that the market links on the homepage have not been updated, for example.

Assuming that John Allen Frey was j0nn9 (Jonny Frey), we can only determine that as he clearly became unwell he might of passed certain aspects of the project to one of his peers, colleagues, academic faculty, an associate or perhaps a family member ?

No one in the gapcoin community here on bitcointalk has been able to determine otherwise. The record and bounty were certainly published from j0nn9's account, being the last post to date from that account.

It's certainly not me and I don't know who it is at present.

I am the sole owner and contributor to the https://gapcoin.club website though.

EDIT: This doesn't hinder Gapcoin moving forward, if anything it's a good thing !

Mathematics Department Hosts Pie-themed Party to celebrate Pi Day
- https://web.archive.org/web/20181107214743/https://kealakai.byuh.edu/content/mathematics-department-hosts-pie-themed-party-celebrate-pi-day

"The BYU-Hawaii Mathematics Department gave out free pizza and pies to celebrate Pi Day and promote the Math Learning Center at 2:30pm on Monday, March 14 in the General Classroom Building.

John Frey, a senior from Florida studying physics education and math tutor at the center, said the Mathematics Department has a Pi Day party every year on March 14 since the digits for the number pi are 3.14. Dr. Russel Carlson, assistant professor of mathematics, said this year’s Pi Day is “Rounded Pi Day” because when the number is rounded to the fourth decimal place, it equals 3.1416.

According to Frey, the department wanted to take advantage of the unique date to promote the Math Learning Center. Also known as the Math Lab, the center has its own computer lab where students can receive help from tutors with their math homework.

Even though the party is done every year, Frey said, “It was kind of a bigger deal for us this semester because it was happening after the first week of school as opposed to near the end of the semester.”

Frey said the tutors wanted to show their fun side. He said, “We just wanted to say, ‘Hey, we’re tutors, we’re fun, we like to party, and we’re friendly people.’ We’re trying to put a little more fun in math because without something like a math lab, math is such a pain for people.”

After serving free pizza and pie, Dr. Carlson gave a presentation about the history of the number pi. “The earliest record we have of it dates back to 2000 BC. There was an old, Egyptian papyrus known as the Rhind Papyrus. It has an approximation of pi: 16 divided by 9 quantity squared,” said Carlson.

Carlson said the idea of the number pi is also found in the Bible. He said, “When King Solomon was building his temple, there are all of these descriptions and dimensions. For the molten basin in 1 Kings 7:23, it says it was 10 cubits across and 30 cubits round about. That ratio - 30 divided by 10 - is three, an approximation of pi.”

Fascinated by the progress humans have made, Carlson said, “Currently we know over five trillion digits of pi thanks to computers. I have a file with the first million digits, but there’s no way I’d save a file with all five trillion.”

After Dr. Carlson’s presentation, students and math faculty competed in a competition to see who could solve a rubix cube the fastest. Then, students and faculty participated in a competition to see who could write the most amount of digits of pi. Carlson won, writing 40 digits after the decimal.

Students then competed in a pie-eating contest where they had to clear a plate of whipped cream. DonEliezer Baize, a sophomore from Kahuku studying mathematics and a math lab tutor, won the contest and received a free apple pie as his prize.

Baize said he was happy with how the activity turned out. “Students love food, so we figured we gotta hook up those college students with some free pie. We threw in pizza, making it a solid homerun.”

Frey said, “People dread math, so it’s not only our job to help them with their homework, but to relieve their stress. Activities like this are perfect excuses to have fun, and we don’t get those too often.”

The Math Lab is located in GCB 177. For information on hours and resources, visit math.byuh.edu/mathlab."

John Allen Frey ? 1991 - 2017 - Obituary

- https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/decaturdailydemocrat/obituary.aspx?pid=185690571

"John Allen Frey, 26, formerly of Decatur, passed away May 12, 2017, in California, Md., after battling illnesses for nine months. He was born in Orange Park, Fla., John and his family resided in Maine, Washington State, Puerto Rico and South Carolina.
He graduated from Brigham Young University Hawaii in 2016 with degrees in physics education (Magna cum Laude) and mathematics. He taught physics and science at Oak Ridge High School in Orlando, Fla.
John enjoyed teaching, spending time with his family, and writing, directing and acting in productions. He was especially gifted with the piano, which he played most of his life, composing many original pieces..."


- https://www.gofundme.com/funeral-expenses-for-john-frey

"As some of you may know - and many of you may not - for nearly the last year, John suffered through severe illness. The severe, relentless physical pain weighed on his shoulders day in and day out, unbeknownst to many. Through countless doctors appointments, visits, and even surgery - doctors were unable to find the cause or provide any relief for John's ailments.

In an attempt to lessen the pain, doctors prescribed John medications that had side effects: severe depression and suicidal tendencies.

On May 12, 2017 John Allen Frey left this life.

John's passing was unexpected. We, his family, are heart broken. We're trying to process and grieve the loss of our son, brother, nephew, cousin, grandson, friend. ..."

My sincere condolences - BitcoinFX

...

I assert that John Allen Frey was the original developer of Gapcoin and hence the community here can now better understand the situation. It would appear that John's family members (or professors / colleagues?) might have maintained elements of the project in legacy to John.

Once I have established that the above is indeed correct, as the Gapcoin community, we can work to continue his great legacy.

Would the person or persons who clearly have continued access to the gapcoin.org website please kindly step forward to notify this community and/or simply send me an email or PM.

From the aspect of a mining pool... I could use some advice perhaps..

I'm willing to TRY to make a mining pool. I have an older desktop - an older workstation - that I originally had pfsense on but never ran it on my network here at home.

Like I said, I'm willing to try if I can dedicate that desktop for a gapcoin mining pool...

You have a good goal by being willing to try it, multiplying the mining pool is a big support for a coin. I hope you'll find your solution, so that you can immediately do your wishes and make the older thing you have will useful again.

You could try resurrecting noncepool's old gapcoin-stratum pool, coupled with the corresponding Python implementation of gapcoin-hash.

Cheers,

Thank you two for the input. I'll tinker around and see what I can do. I have never tried, but I'm sure I can do it - maybe with some help and a few adult beverages...I have a good ISP as far as speeds and a spare desktop, along with a passion of learning....so why not?

Great initiative!

Remember that for a production pool you will need to upgrade to a future Gapcoin release, on a LTS Linux version and ideally being hosted on a reliable cloud server ...

The basic linux daemon guide can now almost be considered completely outdated: https://gapcoin.club/linux-gapcoind-setup.php

Gapcoin development and software releases may start to become quite regular from now on.

Never have any doubts to ask for help with anything in this topic.

Bit by bit, Gap by gap - together we can make good progress and the history books !
