    To go out and promote Freicoin right now would be kinda pointless. These points are purely from me and i am no where near as active as i once was so just take them with a pinch of salt -Logo, Ive said this a few years ago that the actual Coin logo is dated and doesnt Pop or look professional. This should be changed and refreshed. -Ease of accessing Wallets: As it is currently, you cant just point and click to get a wallet on every platform. I beleive you have an android wallet but not an iphone wallet? The 64 bit windows 10 doesnt seem to work without a work around that has been mentioned earlier. I would think if you want adoption then getting a wallet should be the easiest part and as it stands it can be a pain in the arse. -More Hashing on the network to keep the block times stable. I realise mining gear is a pain in the butt to house and run and from previous deals that went south for some people "joes pool thingy" then would the idea of a generic kitty that we entrust someone like Rik, or Arc and just use those funds to rent hashing power? Its relatively cheap now days and takes the hassle out of housing the Units and feeding them cool air and power. I would be more than happy to chip in if people were actually keen and there was enough spread of people. -A Video/Animation that details Freicoins abilities and effectively spells out in basic terms how it all works. If enough people would be happy to chip in i would also chip in to help fund something. As i see it there would need to be a considerable amount of effort that must be put into Freicoin to basically relaunch it and put it back onto peoples radars. Besides getting some hashing power on it and freshening up the look, there would also need to be some effort to get it back onto exchanges and available to more people. Im finishing up work in a couple of weeks and going to be in Thailand doing some training so i will have a good bit of spare time and id be more than happy to help but i have limited tech skills and my main contribution would be to put some money towards getting things done. Anyways, just my thoughts and ideas.

    Hello

    Atm its: @Skaro, @fedde, @Arcurus and @Bicknellski and me that are actively discussing/improving. There are some others that joining in from time to time but we are the core. Latest Improvements are: 1. A blockexplorer showing the balance with the demurrage substracted -> freicoin.info. 2. A fast, good looking and easy to use exchange -> freiexchange.com. 3. Freicoin Wallet 0.9 tested and working -> https://github.com/eddef/freicoin. 4. The newest p2pool ported to freicoin -> http://alfa.sicanet.net:9638/static/ (Payout and Transaction count is not displaying correct but i will look into it when i have the mood;-). 5. Coinomi multiwallet including freicoin (beta version -should work but i am the only one that tested it atm) -> https://github.com/wincev/coinomi-android I hope i haven't forgotten something!? Rik

    Hello

    buzz word that everyone is talking about now is blockchain and how they can exploit it/use it. Freicoin doesn't offer much in that department. At the end of the day, Freicoin is Bitcoin that demurrage's. It would be nice if Freicoin could be awesome again. Even tho i wouldn't be rich, my coins were tied up in Vircurex hahaha. laaaaaaame. I havent been able to get a wallet to work on windows 10 64bit. Think i'm just going to get BTC as it crashes. Managed to pick up 6 at 400bucks each a year ago so thats turned into a nice little help!

    Future of Freicoin

    Freicoin was almost dead and has recently come back through grass roots efforts: Fedde built a new exchange, and a new explorer was built showing demurrage paid. There was a wallet update last August. These efforts are continuing. In the works are updating p2pool software, updating wallets, and Fedde's exchange will be expanding to include other crypto-currencies all trading relative to FRC. The demurrage aspect of the currency means the coin is designed for spending and not speculating. Nevertheless, the present potential for value rise far exceeds the annual 5% demurrage fee. For this to be attractive, crypto-currencies need to find wider acceptance and circulation. Compared with 2008 and 2013, this appears to be happening now. Freicoin's developers are active and founding partners of Blockstream, and Freicoin is known for innovation (and not being a get rich quick scheme) since 2013.

    From someone who looks from the outside and doesnt have the knowledge in currency like alot of you guys do here is what i see. From the lessons learnt from the last bitcoin rise that created an altcoin rise i have the feeling that altcoins are going to come back to earth. I think bitcoin will keep hopping up and dropping back and eventually pulling back to between 2k -2.5k a coin and it will stabalise there. The reasons for this are like we seen back in the day of the whole hype around bitcoin which followed the surge to 1k per coin which then dropped below, hovered around 700-900 a coin and then came crashing down to as low as the 250 region with all the hacking of exchanges and stealing of coins (also everyone remembers Mount Gox). I dont think bitcoin will fall as hard this time because of the spread of platforms that use it now (think exchanges and even futures trading has bitcoin available now). Saying that tho, this second round of hype i believe is over. This i would assume will see alot of people cashing out and locking down profits. So this is when i see the coin going back to its base of 2k-2.5k per coin (USD). As for something overtaking bitcoin, i think it should be treated like it will continue on its trend since its creation which has always been to raise in value. My plan will be to wait for the hype to finish on this round, let the prices settle then continue purchasing here and there. Freicoin: I love Freicoin, i love the idea of demurrage as a tool to keep money moving but sadly inflation will always be apart of human economics and demurrage will always turn people away from using it. You have to ask the regular person, (puts on the car salesman suit and tie) "Hey miss/mr, come and use this amazing form of currency that you can send to anywhere in the world, for a fee thats equivilant to your dollar terms of roughly 1 cent. Its all electronic, you can carry it on your phone, you can put some of it in the form of a paper amount and its as secure as you make it! By the way all your money will go down by 5% PA" The last part is where your average mum and dad user will run the other way. For someone who earns 40k per year, to lose 2k per year to demurrage is the same as taking a pay cut for them. I know there are benefits that out weigh this but you have to look at it from the mum and dad user because thats who makes our society. For me if i think about the coin as just another altcoin to bitcoin, its just a copy cat that takes 5% from my pocket. Yes its better that it gets circulated but even if you spend your money and keep it circulating, whatever you have left gets demurraged. I cant see any interest coming back for Freicoin, i wish it would as i said i do genuinly like the idea of keeping money moving instead of hoarding it. I kinda wish demurrage worked the way that say if you spend freicoin, then you get 5% PA on the money you spend. You are encouraged to circulate the coin, encouraged not to hoard it, not speculate on the price. If you use Freicoin you actually get rewarded. I dont think there are any coins around like that. Dont shoot me down, just ideas and personal views on the way i look through the window. Are there any plans to further develope Freicoin? I remember coloured coins which never eventuated. It would be awesome for everyone to have a big think about what they think of the perfect coin, what functions it could have and maybe that will get some people fired up again. As much as i have seen the whole posts with JOE and all the issues that went on, i do miss the old days of just talking in the chatbox and there was always people to talk to about Freicoin or other ideas. Theres just not many people around the coin now days

    currently many of the crypto tokens seem overrated. Many coins had a tenfold the last months. many coins are just junk. tons of ipos got tons of millions. daily millions are burned for mining fees. bitcoins growth is artificially limited with the blocksize. federal reserve is increasing interest on dollar. summer hole for investments (june to october)... People need money for holidays.... coinbase collapsing because of too many users.... bitcoin miner vs developer vs industry vs users.... crazy world.... its fully unclear what is happening.... crazy times....

    Hello

    Hey guys, How is everyone? just been cruising around looking at how crazy the crypto world is going right now. It reminds me of when btc peaked at 1k for the first time and all the altcoins went bonkers! Hope you guys have made some great income off the sky rockets. I wish friecoin was still one of the coins around but it seems that it isnt on any exchanges these days except for the one you guys created (nice job by the way, looks cool) In my cruising around and looking at all the madness i saw that my mining account had some btc left in it so i threw it onto a miner and pointed it at fed and fabs pool. Well i hope everyone is doing well. Man i wish i had have bought ether when it was worth fuck all like everyone does i guess haha.

    @Bicknellski maybe this would be something for your children: 4. We’re developing a Grantcoin savings account program for children in developing countries. Our team is drafting a proposal to present to two charities, one in Africa and one in Latin America, which have already expressed interest. We hope to expand the program to more charities in the future.

    @fedde was working on the registration process with using the forum. best contact him if you want to have the current news. Other then that with the general development of Freicoin we have two possibilities, one is gradually improve the code. Second is as outlined above to rebase it on new technology and learn out of past mistakes.

    Time for a little update from behind the scenes 😊 will see in a week or two depending on how much time i have to wrap things up - live orderbooks - multicoin trading ( more trading pairs) - design fix up - more speed I am also adding new servers to alot of the network. I will be replacing alot of the old gear to keep all services up and running more or less as its time things get updated. Got a deal on refurbished servers at 200$ a piece with new disks in the arrays (IBM). Also if someone want to rent a dedicated or shared , pm me. Also any new features that other exchanges have that i have forgotten, let me know so i can evaluate and see if i can depoly them. Cheers Summer is here😎 Fedde

    I somehow have the feeling that the whole crypto scene is stuck. Bitcoin price isnt really moving and maybe it is the hot summer/holidays or the fork comming on august 1st or a mix of all. But also freicoin price is not moving. There are only few trades and they are all around the same price. There is not much action in the forum and even less on github. And i am not yet sure if is the free fall or the eye of a storm - i tend to the 2nd..

    @kieranf yup. You caught up quick. That's exactly where we are. 6 months ago it was worse. Since, we have an exchange, P2Pool merge mining software, and a good explorer (that accounts for demurrage), an Electrum wallet, an online wallet, and the price had gone up 10x. The wallet is a pain. We got the 0.9 compiled but are short on resources to modify and release it for a few reasons: 1) not sure what developers are doing (latest wallet is .14); 2) still busy with market, and other projects (I want to get a Foundation audit up); 3) it needs Linux 64-bit and relatively higher experience; 4) we are not full time. It's on the list! I estimate we could get the 0.9 working by mid-end August. That's actually the best thing about Freicoin right now: Inexperienced people can chip in and help. Ultimately we are here to learn about this stuff. Being a small group, its like the old days before everything was so big. If you want to take the lead on modernizing the symbol, great.

    Yeah. Coin Market Cap calculates volume differently. Our volume curve is pretty amazing too. Yeah, Chinese exchanges changed their rules last January. It seems they used to have fees only on withdraws which resulted in large volumes being created by bots. Government regulations forced them to change their practices. Now they have a fees of a fraction of a percent per transaction. Some people argue that they thus 'lied' about their volume before and that the bots just created 'noise'. Some say the nature of the transactions changed. It seems to me, bots trade for profit but noise essentially means random. So this is not the case. I agree that the nature of the transactions changed but that the high volumes are valid and show real market impacts and correlations. Nevertheless, The volumes fell to 2015 levels, when the price was low. In 2015, after paying mining expenses, there was reason to hold coins (all this in the climate of old trading practices). Now, a small transaction fee won't stop anyone from selling BTC after after 200% rise.

    for Solidar, i guess in the beginning its mainly advertisement and a clear vision to get it started. Also you should think about giving some incentive to hold some coins. Like interest up to double the universal dividend. Same incentive is also missing in grantcoin. Also of course a exchange is needed and an experience of price increase can help lot.

    Is anyone else here in the Freicoin community mining or using Ethereum? If you are it be great if we can work together on testing and using Ethereum personally I want to play with and learn more about Ethereum but use it to help improve FRC. Maybe it would be good to somehow get add on to Ethereum wallet for FRC direct exchange. https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/guides/how-to-mine-ethereum/

    I used to mine BTC with my HD7970 Radeon in 2013 so i will probably run that at home overnight or i might build a new rig for mining at school. I was hoping we could merge mine with ETH on fed and fabs pool ... but alternatively for the short term https://ethermine.org/ probably do that or a p2pool for ethereum.if they exist.

    if you want to have unique coins i would suggest to add basic income based currencies like duniter: http://www.duniter.fr/ and http://www.grantcoin.org/ As far as i know duniter does not have a exchange yet and has very big potential so we could attract new people. With bitcoin having 1 dollar plus fees i would also suggest to add at least one common used currency with less fees like dash, ethereum or steem.

    [Draft] Universal dividend project

    Currently im very much busy in a festival preparation that is at 12 of July:: https://www.cecsweden.org/en/ Feel welcome to come if you want to enjoy something different. A nice tending space for free on a lake is alo near by. (Thanks god in Sweden you can tent in the wild for some days). The main concepts for restarting Freicoin i outlined already this winter, i just have to put them together. I can write a draft for a whitepaper economically + technically. The basis is a currency system from people for people. In a way it goes beyond that, it's more about a decentralized Freination. Currency is one part of it. I like the idea of hiring a coder very much, because i'm myself little bit outdated in coding. Neither theless I could help to code most of the algs in pseudo code. During my study time i liked to work together in extreme programming way (two people code at the same computer) very much. The basis for the money are people. Therefore decision making and securing the chain would be based directly on people. At worst this would fall back to proof of stake (POS) security. Up to know the most promising POS systems I know about are the one who combine proof of work with pos like for example dash does it through using a second layer on top of the proof of work chain. This could look like this: - for each freinode you must deposit X coins as security - each freinode can have Y universal dividend receivers - each pow block organises the list of freinodes hierarchically until the next block is mined - the hierachicaly ordered freinodes generate the next block candidate - a transaction is marked as irreversible if 80% of the freinodes agree that it is included in the current block candidate - freinodes can veto other freinodes with a 2/3 majority. in this case the security cannot be used for a certain time period. The biggest question is what technology to base it on? - bitcoin node.js - bitcoin c++ - ripple (can be made easy to fully POS, or proof of human), has distributed exchange - duniter (has implemented proof of human, is build on a web of trust) - steem (has trading, decentralized platform, 100% delegated proof of stake) - ethereum??? Currently its really hard to say which of these technologies will make the breakthrough and therefore are good to base on... My tendency is currently bitcoin / node.js, its platform independent, easy to code for web developers, good tested To the demurrage: - out of simplicity reasons i would implement it purely client wise / display only. This means there is a base currency that is inflated 5% per year, but on client site it is displayed as a demurrage by default. This would be easy to implement and also very easy to use. Switching from old to new: - if the new code is not directly based on Freicoin we could do it the following way: 1. make a clean new start. If agreed we can exchange for a certain time the old currency to the new at a certain rate. 2. import the amounts.
