  1. Ok. You said that "It has been demonstrated that this only works for the dominant coin of a proof-of-work system". Do you have a reference to this?
  2. Hi Mark. That sounds interesting. But first of all, I understand the link you sent me: "Investigate replacing difficulty adjustment algorithm". I'm not sure I understand what you wrote: "a blocker for deploying forward blocks". Are they talking about the same thing?
  3. I'm not the greatest coder but if you have a math or numerical methods problem I could help.
  4. Hi Mark. Thanks. I was waiting for the 12.1 .1.
  5. Latest version 12.1 released April 1 2019 http://freico.in/download/
  6. Oops I didn’t see this thread. it’s raininng wallets.
  7. Latest version 12.1 released April 1 2019 http://freico.in/download/ They keep coming faster than we can download them now! thank you for your hard work , Mark.
  8. Tremendous. Just tremendous. ?
  9. With all due respect, @Mark Friedenbach, could we maybe have a non technical summary of important features? Does this mean we can start mining Freicoin on the cuckoo algorithm? Thanks
  10. Tremendous. Just tremendous.
  11. Well being this is the “Future of Freicoin” thread, it seems it could use a note here. With Maaku’s announcement of ‘Forward Blocks’ and the implementation of such tech on Freicoin, a new era in Freicoin is born. The buy wall for FreiExchange has shot up by 4x, and other such financial indications. Perhaps now, with the increasing price of Freicoin, @Arcurus can get a phone number and join us on Telegram. With @Mark Friedenbach working obviously on code, perhaps the rest of us need to restart that nagging of what OTHER things are necessary AROUND Freicoin like new mining pools, web apps etc. To the Moon!

  12. So I fixed the transactions page on ABE this morning. It still has to be pushed though.
  13. Yes, when you click on 'transaction', that view is wrong. I know how to fix it, I just never got around to it. I simply didn't realize it needed adjustment the first time around. The public key summary and the block view were what I modified.
  14. But wait. In the above examples, there were 9 transactions in one block. 8 didn't calculate demurrage but the 9th did, in the exlorer. In more recent blocks, the demurrage calculated okay. How could they be different? .Also, I thought ABE read the .DAT files directly. I thought that meant it wasn't using an RPC (I have limited knowledge on this poin\t) (If you are looking at ABE, the 'blocks'' and 'account' views are correct, but I never fixed the 'transactions' view')
  15. Okay. looks like my work just became obsolete. Mixed feelings. On the positive side, I like progress, and I got away with the bounty!
  16. Some transactions are not paying demurrage, or there is something wrong with the explorer. Compare: http://freicoin.info/address/1Lp6jnNLMjEgHuuEeVgMumN49wZ9RXvvKH http://freicoin.info/address/1HHkYNxJHwLUTw2kV4EqfP1ivtmUxvWMPi Notice the reference height is the same in the second one. Did something change in the block structure regarding this? I''m the one that implemented demurrage in ABE. I haven't seen this before.
  17. "If we have so much activity across allthe chains such that a single person cannot run a full node on ALL chains using the same PoW, then the whole system can no longer be decentralized." Wouldn't that be more decentralized; ei, numerous small groups taking care of their own transactions, like serperate countries, banks, and credit cards today? Why have seperate chains sharing the same asset? The whole point is to share the work load and only communicate when necessary? I appreciate of course that you have looked into the details, where I am doing more... beer talk!
  18. @Mark Friedenbach "via strong federations or higher level protocols using cross-chain payment channels". Is this a solution to crypto scaling problems in itself? Like the present world using different currencies and exchange, 1000 different alt-coins, 1000 different blockchains and miners etc. Thus 1000x more capacity. Then, when you need to pay in another coin, there is an atomic swap?
  19. I see a lot of action going on the GitHub site! wow. cool. Thank you for your efforts.
  20. Yes, it only shows outgoing Foundation transaction. But I have to update the DB,
  21. The wallet is now 0.8.6.1-4 we had a fork recently.

    Bitcoin block 503460?

    Thanks for your reply, @Mark Friedenbach. Sorry, I didn't see that anyone replied and I had put this problem aside for a while because it was annoying. So, I am trying to use Bitcoin Database Generator. We had rebuilt it with a pull request that was compatible with Segwit. Then it worked but failed parsing after first transaction of blk01133.dat., block 503460. The error is here: https://github.com/ladimolnar/BitcoinBlockchain/pull/2 After trying a number of things, I finally decided to delete blk01133.dat and reload and reindex. Now it fails at blk01132.dat, block 503370. I thought maybe I should delete all the blockchain and start again, but that takes a week for my laptop to do. So I gave up. Temporarily. Do you see the logic in this error? Thanks, (PS could you update your bio on freico.in? a gentle reminder)
  23. I suppose, in terms of a discussion, perhaps the choice of changing the mining algorithm is related to what people want for a Freicoin's future. For example, if Freicoin were to become a sidechain coin, it should be merge minable (I assume). Or, if we are gonna have a transition period, will this prevent other upgrades during that time? I don't think anyone actually financed buying an ASIC to mine Freicoin recently. Rather, they are just pointing old equipment to Freicoin. People could just literally point their CPUs or GPUs at Freicoin the next day after a hard fork. I'm not sure if the software is available for that, however. If Mark wants to use Freicoin as a test bed for the technology, thats fine too and may give some advertising to the coin. All that aside, I do generally think the cuckoo cycle is cool. If that's the only thing that changes about Freicoin, I do think it is a positive change because its silly that my 3 Ths ASIC is unprofitable on Freicoin.
