Overview of Major Risks of Buying Nyancoins - Version 6

This is the sixth version of the NYAN risks document (based on v5 (v4 (v3 , v2 and original)). These are obsoleted periodically as the old ones get archived to allow for comments again via a new post, to re-examine the risks in light of changes, and for greater visibility.
The purpose of these documents is to provide a best-effort discussion of major risk factors in gambling on NYAN, modeled on the risks disclosure in a 10k (annual report) which is mandated for publicly traded companies in the United States. This document is provided with no guarantee that major risk factors have not been missed, and it is important to recognize my (coinaday) personal bias from holding about one-third of the total supply of NYAN.
Please comment on any risks which are not mentioned here or additional aspects of risks here you think should be further emphasized or any other possible disclosure you think would be helpful to a person considering gambling on NYAN.
Executive summary
Nyancoins have no exchange, no core developer at the moment, uncertain demand, have had inconsistent blocks, are very vulnerable to 51% attacks, have the potential for serious bugs, an uncertain legal situation, concentrated ownership, low liquidity, depend upon the Internet, may be addictive, and could make you wealthy, which has been alleged to lead to more problems.
Introduction: This is my best attempt to collect every major risk factor from buying Nyancoins, although I can offer no warranty of fitness for this information for any purposes. I believe in honesty and forthrightness. Having this available and obvious is a simple matter of basic decency. Much, hopefully all, of this information has been discussed previously in /nyancoins, but this document in particular is about being up-to-date and central. This page will be updated clearly as appropriate if situations change on a best-effort basis (which may mean updates do not happen for months at times, unfortunately; please ping for faster updates).
If you believe that I am missing something, please note any other major risks you see in the comments.
Exchanges:
Nyancoins are not currently traded on any exchange. It may be listed on one minor exchange but have no volume there. Obviously an unlisted cryptocurrency is in a bad situation. I hope to see us gain a listing on an exchange which supports low volume coins in 2020 but I have no current prospect of this and it should be considered a longshot at best.
Previously we traded on Trade Satoshi and prior to that on Cryptopia and prior to that on Cryptsy. All three exchanges failed us (Trade Satoshi delisted without allowing withdrawal; Cryptopia delisted and failed to provide withdrawal and then went bankrupt; Cryptsy went bankrupt). This is a further reminder that exchanges are a major risk and one should be extremely careful to not keep more coins on there than one can comfortably afford to lose.
In theory, there are decentralized exchange technologies, notably CATE; however, I think we currently lack some needed APIs for this. I'm not certain but we haven't demonstrated the capability yet. On-Reddit exchanges are also possible with tipbots, but require trust as they are not atomic. It should be possible to build an "exchangebot" similarly, although I'm not currently aware of one, but my concept would still have the bot as a trusted central party.
Atomic cross-chain transactions seem to me like a very promising core technology ultimately for building exchanges which can be more proveably secure. They could also allow exchanges to share a common listing protocol as well without having to trust the other exchanges (at least, beyond the core protocol development and maintenance; tanstaafl). This is not yet accomplished though and in the meantime we remain vulnerable to periodic exchange failures.
Core developer: Although we have good general tech support in this community and have put up supporting infrastructure, there is not anyone officially currently working on core client code. This is a significant problem for the long-term, although we are not in any immediate known need of changes.
ImASharkRawwwr has returned to the community and may do future client updates, but I'm leaving the lack of core developer risk unchanged until there is an update released. This is not intended as a slight in any way but merely being cautious in the risks document and recognizing that we aren't certain when or if there will be a next release.
Demand: NYAN was introduced in 2014 and during the second half of that year had so little demand that it almost died out. In January 2015 I got involved in the coin and for most of 2015 and 2016 I was the majority of the buying pressure. I base these statements on my recollection of the trading history so far and the fact that I have acquired more than 120 million coins, somewhere around 41% of the coins (latest hodling report, June 2017), as well as my observations that I had usually had the leading major bid, and usually the leading bid regardless of size.
In 2017, I have generally not been a major factor in the demand, as I haven’t had money to spare to gamble on NYAN. In June 2017, we have had a spike in buying from an unknown source.
It is unknown whether significant demand for NYAN will continue. Because its value is purely speculative, it is entirely possible that demand for NYAN could simply end. This is a fundamental risk in gambling on NYAN; it is entirely possible that its value will go to zero and not recover.
By the end of 2019, we lost exchange listing. I know of no current demand for NYAN. I hope to see us listed and demand exist in the future but should not be relied upon. NYAN last traded around 9 satoshi according to coinmarketcap but it may well not even trade that high even if relisted someday - there could be a flood of selling and no buyers.
Inconsistent blocks:
Although NYAN is designed to produce a block every minute, there have been times where there has been more than 24 hours between blocks. This results because of an imperfect difficulty function and low base hashing, along with price fluctuations, which can combine to have a low difficulty making the coin attractive for a flood of hashing power which can lead the difficulty function to overcompensate, leaving it stuck with a high difficulty no longer profitable to mine.
I haven’t observed this lately, that is, I don’t recall incidents of this in 2017, but I’ve been paying far less attention to it as well. It is entirely possible for this to recur, as the difficulty function is not fixed (it would require a hard fork to fix it). We seem to have more baseline hashing which helps to avoid this, but it is possible for us to lose that.
A workaround is to use large transaction fees (I've set my client to 337 NYAN) which is enough to cause pools to generally solve a block even if the chain were otherwise stuck. It may be possible to include a better difficulty function in a hard fork client, but it is unknown when if ever this would be done and it's not yet clear what design improvement if any would fix this.
51% attack: Because of the generally quite low hashing power on NYAN, it is highly vulnerable to a 51% attack. Either a leading pool or a new one could choose to do a denial-of-service attack, whether for extortion, lulz, or some other reason (like coinaday being annoying). Such an attack is capable of preventing any transaction processing for as long as it is sustained. I consider this a relatively low risk since I expect we would simply wait it out (and potentially not even notice such an attack for quite a while given the low volume of transactions currently), but it is definitely a potential vulnerability.
Bugs: It is possible that there are bugs in the underlying code. I have never read through all of the bitcoin or nyancoin code, of any version, nor even studied the original bitcoin whitepaper in depth (by the way, we oughta make up a nyancoin whitepaper or ten someday), meaning I have no professional or technical knowledge about whether or not the system is fundamentally sound. I've been going based on "it seems to be working, so it's probably fine", which is, shall we say, more of an engineering than scientific approach.
I have heard reference to a "time warp" bug vulnerability in the KGW difficulty function which Nyancoins has. I do not know details and my understanding is a fix to this would require a fork to change the difficulty function, so I do not anticipate a fix before NYAN3, the term for an eventual hard fork, but it is unknown when if ever this would be done. I consider this vulnerability to be likely to be related to the fundamental weakness to difficulty spikes after large amounts of hashing jumps on the network. Hostile (or simply passing interest with large capacity) hashing does degrade the performance of the network. As a workaround, this class of attack can be mitigated with a transaction to 'unstick' the chain after, since the difficulty function will adjust in the next block after enough wall-time has passed since the last block (so only need one high difficulty solve which can be triggered by a transaction fee).
Legal: Bitcoin faces uncertain legal situations in almost every country. Nyancoin is even more uncertain, as people tend to consider bitcoin and not address impacts on altcoins. Between the potential tax implications and banking regulations and currency laws, there are a wide variety of ways a person could make a felony-level mistake. This can be somewhat mitigated by merely buying and holding, as you won't be responsible for KYC/AML presumably (although an argument could be made in your purchase), and presumably unrealized capital gains wouldn't be taxable (but I am neither a lawyer nor accountant nor any sort of expert on the relevant accounting laws in any country).
Somehow getting legal opinions for Nyancoins in every country would be very useful in my opinion. If Bitcoin and altcoins are well-studied in a given country it should be relatively easy to adapt those opinions and research to Nyancoins, but it would still require some pro bono work in any case. So...hopefully we'll get some lawyer Nekonauts someday who are willing to semi-officially give us an opinion. In the meantime...hope that common sense can save you. If you sell Nyancoins directly, you're going to need to comply with the KYC/AML types of laws of your country. If you're going to do banking operations...may the central bank have mercy on your soul.
I think the best advantage we have is the same bitcoin had for its first years: we're too small for anyone to care. But since we plan to grow significantly, we need to be aware of our legal issues upon scale. Which is to say, whether or not you're allowed to sell 10,000 NYAN to your friend probably has a lot to do with whether your friend legally acquired whatever is being offered in exchange, and whether the value of what you get in return is above a certain level or not. I'm not going to try guessing that level precisely because I know I'll be wrong. $1 is probably fine. $10,000 is probably illegal without some significant licensing. I would suggest either not touching fiat or else deliberately capping it without verification after getting an independent local expert legal opinion.
concentration: The fact that I hold about 41%(? not sure the exact percentage as of Dec 2017 ; need to do updated survey to check; 41% sounds slightly high to me but I'll see...I'll try to update by the end of the year or shortly after) of the currently outstanding NYAN could be a major risk factor, particularly if I do not act in the best long-term interests of the strength of Nyancoins. For instance, I could pull my bids, sell only a small part of my holdings, crash the market, and potentially buy a lot of volume for a lower price. While I cannot foresee any circumstance under which I would do this, it is certainly conceivable that I could be financially, legally, or morally obligated to do so if I were to become insolvent.
Liquidity: There is very little trading activity in NYAN. Therefore, large purchases will drive the price up and large sales will drive the price down. This means that entering and exiting a position is likely to result in "slippage", so even if the price has increased slightly overall since the time before one entered a position to the time before one exits it, it is quite possible that the overall trade will be neutral or negative as a result of the pressure on the market. For an extreme example, my own position would be essentially impossible to exit from the market without crashing the price, and even so it would likely be difficult to find buyers even at a satoshi, based on that I currently am the majority of the bids on the market. This is closely tied to the concentration risk but if I were to exit NYAN for any reason or simply fail to continue to renew bids the liquidity would dry up even further.
At the end of 2019, having no exchange, there is functionally zero liquidity. In theory peer to peer trading could still be done but I’m unaware of any.
Internet outage: if the Internet goes down, we hit a very nasty scenario. We can't process transactions, and all the miners go into a race to make 'useless' blocks on their own. If the Internet were never to come back up, Nyancoins would be dead. If there is a daylong internet outage, the longest blockchain discovered after, presumably representing the most hashing power dedicated to empty blocks during that outage, will win. So I suppose the block rewards in that case are for having the faith in Nyancoins to keep hashing and storing the blockchain during the day without the Internet.
addictive: This was a curiosity to me when I started. Now it's an obsession for me. I'm constantly thinking about how I can help to smooth the path for Nyancoins to grow stronger and better and more valuable. You may find that once you start to realize the impact you can have upon Nyancoins, and that Nyancoins can have upon you, that you start to become addicted as well. It is possible to substitute another addiction in its place, such as dogecoins or pcp, but it is not recommended.
Nyancoin addictions are considered 'mostly harmless'. The exception is if you go 'full coinaday' and start to accumulate more than 10% of your assets in Nyancoins. In this, this is essentially a variety of gambling addiction. I would argue that it beats roulette because you can tilt the odds in your favor, but then, I would argue that, wouldn't I?
mo' nyan mo' problems: Some people have claimed that more money leads to more problems. Since nyan is money, it follows as a consequence of the conjecture. Should this be the case, your increasing nyan could potentially lead to such problems in the future as: enhanced attention from revenue collection services of all kinds (governmental and private), swarms of fake friends and gold-diggers, excessive risk-taking as a result of feelings of invincibility, an increase in certain varieties of targeted marketing, possible disqualification for asset-based welfare for you (or even your children, for instance college financial assistance), an inability to remember how many houses you own, or other serious problems.
Conclusion
The lack of any exchange trading Nyancoins is a major risk factor in its future survival. If it is listed, the lack of development is likely the next most serious. The coin currently survives but whether it will continue to do so in the future is far from certain. If those of us who have found or come back to NYAN choose to keep it alive, I believe it still has a chance at surviving into a stronger future.

Executive summary
Nyancoins have no core developer at the moment, uncertain demand, are traded actively on only one exchange, have had inconsistent blocks, are very vulnerable to 51% attacks, have the potential for serious bugs, an uncertain legal situation, concentrated ownership, low liquidity, depend upon the Internet, may be addictive, and could make you wealthy, which has been alleged to lead to more problems.

There are a variety of different risks in buying Nyancoins. I believe the most serious one is the developer issue. If those of us who have found or come back to NYAN abandon it, it could die. Otherwise, I consider the risks generally manageable, but exchange failure or a currently unknown bug could do serious damage to the ecosystem as well.

such beginner shibe thread wow how to get coin

 how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do 

START HERE

UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions.
Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client.
Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots).
If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
maxconnections=100 addnode=95.85.29.144 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=146.185.181.114 addnode=188.165.19.28 addnode=166.78.155.36 addnode=doge.scryptpools.com addnode=doge.netcodepool.org addnode=doge.pool.webxass.de addnode=doge.cryptopool.it addnode=pool.testserverino.de addnode=doge.luckyminers.com addnode=doge.cryptovalley.com addnode=miner.coinedup.comdoge addnode=doge.cryptoculture.net addnode=dogepool.pw addnode=doge.gentoomen.org addnode=doge.cryptominer.net addnode=67.205.20.10 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=78.46.57.132 
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes.
Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!

GETTING COINS

Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.

MINING

Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.

GPU MINING

These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.

Step One: Choose a pool

There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later.
NOTE: You can mine in two ways. Solo mining is where you mine by yourself. When you find a block you get all the reward. Pool mining is when you team up with other miners to work on the same block together. This makes it more likely that you'll find a block, but you won't get all of it, you'll have to split it up with others according to your share of the work. Pool mining is recommended because it gives you frequent payouts, because you find more blocks. The larger the pool you join, the more frequent the payouts, but the smaller the reward you get.
Over a long period of time the difference between pool and solo mining goes away, but if you solo mine it might be months before you get any coins.

Step two: Set up pool account

The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:

Step three: Download mining software

For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Unzip the download anywhere you want.

Step four: Set up miner

Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets).
For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p
For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O :
Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.

Step five: Launch your miner

Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate.
If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough.
NOTE: A normal hashrate is between 50 Kh/s up to even 1 Mh/s depending on your GPU.

You're now mining Dogecoins

That's it, nothing more to it.

CPU MINING

CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.

Trading

Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:

Faucets

Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!

Begging

This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.

Tips

At the moment there are two tip bots:
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this:
+dogetipbot 5 doge
This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff.
As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one.
If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

[Very long, very serious] Development summary week ending 18th April 2014

When I got my first full time job, I used to try implementing requests from everyone as they came in, and for a while people really loved that I listened to their requests. Over time, however, things started to go wrong. I’d apply a change someone asked for, and in doing so would break something elsewhere in the code, in some subtle way that was missed in short-term testing. I’d fix that second bug and reveal a third. I’d fix that just in time for a new request to come in, and the process repeat. This led to the term “Bug whack-a-mole”, wherein I was spending time mostly fixing bugs introduced to live systems through rushing through earlier bug fixes.
So this week, we’ve had a lot of people asking about changes to proof-of-work, especially X11, or even moving to proof of stake, primarily in an attempt to address risk of a 51% attack. A 51% attack is where one actor (person, group, organisation, whatever) gains control of enough resources to be able to create their own blockchain, isolated from the main blockchain, at a rate at least as quickly as the main blockchain is being created. They can then spend Dogecoins on the main blockchain, before releasing their fake blockchain; if their fake blockchain is longer than the existing blockchain, nodes will switch to the new blockchain (as they would when repairing a fork), and essentially the spent Dogecoin on the main blockchain are reversed and can be spent again. This is mostly of consequence to exchanges and payment processors (such as Moolah), who are most likely to end up holding the loss from the double-spend.
The concern about a 51% attack stems from a couple of weeks ago now, when Wafflepool was around 50% of the network hashrate (mining power). It’s still high (at the time of wring about 32GH/s out of almost 74GH/s, or about 43%), but it is diminishing as a proportion.
Lets talk about proof of stake first, as this one’s simpler. Proof of stake has been suggested as a way of avoiding the risk of Wafflepool having control of too many mining resources by itself, by changing from securing the blockchain through computational resources (work), to using number of Dogecoin held. The theory is that those with most Dogecoins have most to lose, and will act in their own interests. Major examples of proof of stake coins include Peercoin, Mintcoin and more recently Blackcoin.
However, this essentially means we take control from Wafflepool, and hand it to Cryptsy (who are considered most likely to be the holder of some of the huge Dogecoin wallets out there). I by no means expect either organisation to attempt a 51% attack, but hopefully it’s clear that simply switching risks isn’t actually improving things. I’ve also had significant concerns raised from the merchant/payment processor community about potential impact of proof of stake, and that it may encourage hoarding (as coins are awarded for holding coins, rather than for mining). The price instability of Mintcoin and Blackcoin (and that Peercoin appears to only avoid this through very high transaction fees to keep the entire network inert) does not encourage confidence, either. For now, proof of stake remains something we’re keeping in mind, primarily in case price does not react as anticipated to mining reward decreases over time, but certainly we’re not eager to rush into such a change.
Before I get into a discussion on proof of work, let me summarise this quickly; right now, uncertainty about changes is holding back our community from adopting ASICs. It’s high risk to spend hundreds, thousands or in some cases significantly more on ASIC hardware which could be left useless if we move. Those who have already purchased ASICs to support the Dogecoin hashrate would most likely have to mine Litecoin to recover sunk costs, if we did move. ASICs are virtually inevitable, and in our assessment we are better off pushing for rapid adoption, rather than expending resources delaying a problem which will re-occur later.
At the time of writing the development team has no plans to change proof of work algorithm outside of the eventuality of a major security break to Scrypt. We are focusing on mitigation approaches in case of a 51% attack, and adoption of the coin as the most sustainable approaches to dealing with this risk.
The X11 algorithm has been proposed as an alternative proof of work algorithm. X11, for those unaware, was introduced with Darkcoin. It’s a combination of 11 different SHA-3 candidate algorithms, using multiple rounds of hashing. The main advantage championed for Darkcoin is that current implementations run cooler on GPU hardware. Beyond that, there’s a lot of confusion over what it does and does not do. As I’m neither an algorithms or electronics specialist, I recruited a colleague who previously worked on the CERN computing grid to assist, and the following is primarily his analysis. A full technical report is coming for anyone who really likes detail, this is just a summary:
A lot of people presume X11 is ASIC resistant; it’s not. Candidate algorithms for SHA-3 were assessed on a number of criteria, including simplicity to implement in hardware. All 11 algorithms have been implemented in FPGA hardware, and several in ASIC hardware already. The use of multiple algorithms does significantly complicate ASIC development, as it means the resulting chip would likely be extremely large. This has consequences for production, as the area of a chip is the main determining factor for likelihood of an error in the chip.
The short version being that while yes it would take significant resources to make an efficient ASIC for X11, for a long time Scrypt was considered infeasible to adapt to ASICs. As stated earlier, any move would most likely be nothing more than an extremely expensive and risky delaying manoeuvre. ASIC efficiency would also depend heavily on ability to optimise the combination of the algorithms; a naive implementation would run at around the rate of the slowest hashing algorithm, however if any common elements could be found amongst the algorithms, it may be that this could be improved upon significantly
There are also significant areas of concern with regards to X11. The “thermal efficiency” is most likely a result of the algorithm being a poor fit for GPU hardware. This means that GPU mining is closer to CPU mining (the X11 Wiki article suggests a ratio of 3:1 for GPU/CPU mining performance), however it also means that if a way of was found to improve performance there could be significantly faster software miners, leading to an ASIC-like edge without any of the hardware development costs. The component algorithms are all relatively new, and several were rejected during the SHA-3 competition for security concerns (see http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/hash/sha-3/Round2/documents/Round2_Report_NISTIR_7764.pdf for full details). Security criteria for SHA-3 algorithms was also focused on ability to generate collisions, rather than on producing hashes with specific criteria (such as number of leading 0s, which is how proof of work is usually assessed).
X11 is a fascinating algorithm for new coins, however I would consider it exceptionally high risk for any existing coin to adopt.
Beyond algorithm analysis, this week has been mostly about testing 1.7. Last weekend Patrick raised the issue that we had been incorrectly running the automated tests, which had led to several automated test failures being missed earlier. This led to other tasks being dropped as we quickly reworked the tests to match Dogecoin parameters instead of Bitcoin. So far, all tests have passed successfully once updated to match Dogecoin, however this work continues. On the bright side, it turns out we have a lot more automated tests than we realised, which is very useful for later development.
The source code repository for Dogecoin now also uses Travis CI, which sanity-checks patches submitted to the project, to help us catch any potential problems earlier, thanks to Tazz for leading the charge on that. This is particularly important as of course we’re developing on different platforms (Windows, OS X, Linux) and what works on one, may not work on others. Over time, this should be a significant time saver for the developers. For anyone wanting to help push Dogecoin forward, right now the most productive thing to be doing is testing either Dogecoin, or helping Bitcoin Core test pull requests. Feel free to drop by our Freenode channel for guidance on getting started with either.
Right now, I’m working on the full technical report on X11, and will then be back working on the payment protocol for Dogecoin. I’ve approached a few virus scanning software companies about offering their products for Dogecoin, with so far no response, but will update you all if I hear more.
Lastly, the next halvening (mining reward halving) is currently expected late on the 27th or early on the 28th, both times GMT. Given that it was initially expected on the 25th, we’re obviously seeing some slippage in estimates, and a total off the top of my head guess would be that we’ll see it around 0500 GMT on the 28th at this rate. I have taken the 28th off from the day job, and will be around both before and after in case of any problems (love you guys, not getting up at 5am to check on the blockchain, though!)

I've been working on a bot for crypto subs like /r/bitcoin for a few days now. Say hello to crypto_bot!

Hey guys, I've been working on crypto_bot for some time now. It provides a bunch of features that I hope will enhance your experience on /bitcoin (and any other subreddit). You can call it by mentioning it in a comment. I started working on this a few days ago. I'm constantly adding new features and will update this post when I do, but if you're interested I'll post all updates and some tips at /crypto_bot. Please either comment here, message me, or post there if you'd like to report a bug, request a feature, or offer feedback. There's also one hidden command :)
You can call multiple commands in one comment. Here's a description of the commands you can use:

Market Data:

crypto_bot 
Responds with the USD price of one bitcoin from an average of six of the top bitcoin exchanges (BTC-E, Bitstamp, Bitfinex, Coinbase, Kraken, Cryptsy).
crypto_bot ticker 
Responds with the USD price of one bitcoin at seven exchanges (all of the ones listed above, plus LocalBitcoins). Also lists the average at the bottom.
crypto_bot [exchange] 
Responds with the USD price of one bitcoin from [exchange] (any of the seven listed above).
crypto_bot [litecoin|ltc|dogecoin|doge] 
Responds with the USD price of one litecoin, or the price of 1 doge and 1,000 doge.
crypto_bot litecoin|ltc [exchange] 
Responds with the USD price of one litecoin from BTC-E, Bitfinex, Kraken, or Cryptsy.
crypto_bot [currency] 
Responds with the price of one bitcoin in the specified currency. Available currencies (symbols): JPY, CNY, SGD, HKD, CAD, NZD, AUD, CLP, GBP, DKK, SEK, ISK, CHF, BRL, EUR, RUB, PLN, THB, KRW, TWD.

Information:

crypto_bot [about|info] [arg] 
Responds with a short description about [arg], as well as a link to an external site (Wikipedia, bitcoin.it, and some others) for more information. You can list multiple arguments and get a description for each. Available arguments: bitcoin, block chain, transaction, address, genesis, satoshi, mining, confirmation, coinbase, gox, cold wallet, hot wallet.
crypto_bot legal 
Responds with a chart about the legality of bitcoin in 40 countries, copied straight from Wikipedia.
crypto_bot [explain transaction delay|explain tx delay] 
Responds with an explanation of why transactions may take longer to confirm (the bot specifically discusses spam-transaction attacks in this command).

Network information/tools:

crypto_bot difficulty 
Responds with the current difficulty of the bitcoin network.
crypto_bot [height|number of blocks] 
Responds with the current height of the block chain.
crypto_bot retarget 
Responds with what block the difficulty will recalculate at, as well as how many blocks until the network reaches that block.
crypto_bot [unconfirmed transactions|unconfirmed tx] 
Responds with the current number of unconfirmed transactions.
crypto_bot [new address|generate address] 
Responds with a newly-generated public and private key. This is mainly to provide an explanation of what both look like, and contains a clear warning to not use or send bitcoins to the address.
crypto_bot blockinfo [height] 
Responds with information about block #[height], including its hash, time discovered, and number of transactions.
crypto_bot [address] 
Responds with information about [address], including its balance and number of transactions.
crypto_bot [transaction_id] 
Responds with information about [transaction_id], including what block it was included in, its size, and its inputs and outputs.

Calculators:

crypto_bot calc <# miningspeed> [#][w] [#][kwh] [#][difficulty] [hc$#] [$#] [#%] 
Responds with calculations and information about how a miner would do with the above data (mining calculator). The only required field is mining speed. Order of the arguments does not matter. Everything other than hashrate defaults to the following if not given: w (watts): 0, kwh ($kilowatt cost/hour): 0, difficulty: current network difficulty, hc$ (hardware cost): $0, $: current bitcoin price in usd (according to Coinbase), % (pool fee): 0. The calculator does not account for nor allow for input of the increase/decrease of difficulty over time, though I may add this feature soon. Working hashing speeds: h/s, kh/s, mh/s, gh/s, th/s, ph/s.
Example usage: "crypto_bot calc 30th/s 10w .12kwh hc$55 1.5%" (to make it easier to remember, th/s can also be inputted as ths). This calls the bot with a hashrate of 30 th/s, electricity usage of 10w, a cost of $.12 kWh, a hardware cost of $55, and a pool fee of 1.5%.
crypto_bot number of btc <$amount to convert> [bp$bitcoin price] 
Responds with the number of bitcoins you could buy with <$amount to convert>. If the comment specifies a [bp$bitcoin price], it calculates it with that exchange rate. Otherwise, it uses the rate from Coinbase.
Example usage: "crypto_bot $419.29 bp$180.32" This calculates how many bitcoins you can buy if you have $419.29 and the bitcoin exchange rate is $180.32.

Broadcasting

SignMessage! "" 
Signs a message in the bitcoin block chain in a transaction using OP_RETURN. The message must be less than 40 characters.
Example usage: "SignMessage! "Post messages in the block chain!""
I hope you find this bot useful! Again, if you have any questions or comments, please either comment on this post, message me, or post on /crypto_bot.
Update 1 (June 24, 2015, 17:35): The bot now responds with information if you post a link to a block, transaction, or address on Blockchain.info in a comment, even if you don't call it. For example, if I wrote "https://blockchain.info/block/0000000000000000126448be07fb1f82af19fbbf07dd7e07ebcd08d42c2660cb" in a comment, it would respond with information about block #362,377.
Update 2 (July 10, 2015, 1:59): The bot now has two additional commands: "unconfirmed transactions" (or "unconfirmed tx") and "explain transaction delay" (or "explain tx delay"). The first command responds with the number of unconfirmed transactions, and the second explains why transactions might take extra time to confirm.
Update 3 (August 24, 2015, 1:34): The bot now responds in a better way than before when transaction ids or addresses are posted. Before, it only responded when the transaction id or address was used in a link to Blockchain.info. Now the bot will respond whenever a transaction id or address is posted at all; a link to Blockchain.info is no longer necessary.
Update 4 (August 27, 2015, 3:00): The bot can now sign messages in the Bitcoin block chain using OP_RETURN.

Long time crypto trader: BTC and LTC manipulated and so is Dogecoin - 1Ð should be $0.005

Dogecoin's price is very undervalued and I believe it will reach new all time highs within the next few months as long as development and infrastructure in the community and marketplace continues to grow.
Some of you may not have noticed whats going on in /Bitcoin but they have just realised the extent and reasons why the Bitcoin price has been declining in the face of 6 months of positive news: manipulation by some whales
This is not limited to Bitcoin but also Litecoin and what I have been seeing the last 2 months in the Dogecoin price too.
So why is there manipulation? greed, plain and simple! In a downward price manipulation the actors drive the price lower by selling at that high price to create fear and panic which scares others into selling too and then buy the same number or more coins at a much lower price and making a profit and potentially a lot more profit when they price rises again. Thats also the key - their intention is for the price to rise eventually. They are just loading up.
I have always argued to many sceptics that manipulation is the fuel for the Bitcoin price to move up and down and despite that Bitcoin is undervalued according to available supply, its applications and its ability to solve real world problems for the rest of the 3 billion people that are unbanked around the globe.
Now lets look at Dogecoin and its price. Several months back I posted that the price decline of Dogecoin is due to the the 180 million+ a day of new Dogecoin generated was the reason for the price decline and that supply couldn't meet demand. While that is partly true several months ago I have been observing 40-100 million Dogecoins being dumped at a single time 40-60million Dogecoin sell walls at the slightest indication of Dogecoin moving up this is not auto selling. While some auto dumping occurs from multipools which is normal it doesn't explain the uncontrollable yet coordinated timing at which it is being carried out whenever a breakout appears like happening. This is more obvious this past month since the february manipulation. Right now we are currently seeing Dogecoin sell walls placed to prevent a price rise above 100 satoshi, for how long I don't know?
But what I do know is that Dogecoin is undervalued and I believe each Dogecoin should be worth at least $0.002 and upto $0.005. This puts the market cap between $188m - $470m. I based these figures on the metrics which determine the Bitcoin (and to some degree Litecoin) price in its first year of wide scale media attention and the time it takes 70,000 people to use it for goods and services. Bitcoin reached that threshold last year in spring when the total number of Bitcoins generated was around 12million and price rose to around $50 and so many online shops were using it as well as silk road. This put the market cap of Bitcoin at $600m so Dogecoin with its market place, large user base and lots of media attention would make it reasonable to suggest, despite its inflation rate and no cap to be somewhere between $188-470 million. This means 1 doge would be worth $0.002-0.005.
In fact Coingecko.com tells us Dogecoin is the number two crypto-currency by all metrics but it doesn't tell us how big the marketplace is and the fact there are over 200 businesses atleast that accept Doge and numerous ATMs, secure network, growing userbase, reducing supply rate of new Dogecoins generated and 35% of current supply is held in cold storage by most of the top 30 wallets. I should know I have one of them and I don't plan on selling! I'm waiting for Dogecoin to become universal and very liquid to be able to spend my doge to buy, rent and send to anyone, any company any charity that I choose.
With all that said it will just be a matter of time before the floodgates open and the price rises to new all time highs. But don't invest more than you can afford to lose this is still a speculative technology!
Finally, Im very impressed that demand for dogecoin has been so formidable the past several months in the face of such downward manipulation in price! Well done to you all, keep up the good work and enthusiasm and continue to spend, save and tip doge where you can :)
To the moon!
EDIT: As of right now (11.30 GMT) there is a 80 million sell wall on cryptsy
EDIT 2: 70 million now as 10 million was just bought: the manipulators are smelling a breakout hence the 80 million (http://imgur.com/FHV5A3J)
EDIT 3: if you want to see how manipulation can be defeated check this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uX_bB_4VJk&feature=youtu.be (thanks to Voogru and his post in /bitcoin today)
EDIT 4: while I'm here can you please sign this petition to get doge on the major exchanges if you agree. Thanks!
EDIT 5: More manipulation - 107 million doge sell wall @90 after a 85million sell wall @88 got bought up - this is unprecedented in Dogecoin market history and goes to show how much demand there is. (http://imgur.com/9QG9nOf)

Dogecoiner (and mostly lurker) since Day 1 speaking out.

I've seen Dogecoin grow since day 1. I remember mining thinking this is the most hilarious, dumb and weird thing the internet has created in a long long time.
Lurking 4chan for years I saw threads all over /g/ spread around talking about Dogecoin. Day 2 geek.com and geekosystems.com released articles about Dogecoin, this was the first time a cryptocurrency was ever covered second day of release. About day 5 I brought 10 million Dogecoins from CoinedUp.com the first exchange to trade Dogecoin, I thought this coin was going to go viral. The hashrate went from 2MH/s to 500MH/s within just 6 days of release.
The announcement that Doge is going on Cryptsy made shibes filled with excitement, from there I saw the coin skyrocket from about 40 Satoshis to a high of 230. My investment more than quadrupled and I was so happy that not only was my investment increase in value but that a coin I believed in had a market of great people that believed in it too.
Of course after that rise there was a crash. It went down from 230 satoshis all the way to 23. All hope was lost and the community started crying for Jackson Palmer to make some sort of change and save us all. Some blamed dogeflation, others on the fact that this was a meme coin. There was a lot of things to point the finger at and everyone found everything possible to blame.
After reaching a low of 23 satoshis a rocket was strapped onto Doge and it rose from 23 satoshis to 140 over night! We were thrilled and excited! Bitcoiners, Litecoiners, BBQcoiners and Peercoiners alike were amazed by the rebound and quickly shut their mouths about the idiocy of Dogecoin. All the while the community developed a plan for the Sochi Olympics and the Jamaican bobsled team. Excitement was vibrant and we were happily tipping. I donated 1 million Doge to a friend who told me about Dogecoin day 1 and we were all excited.
Now lets just fast forward to where we are now. Despair has hit the market, posts blaming other shibes for dumping the coins, why the community shouldn't keep it's donating culture and why the coin has fallen the way it has. Honestly it's no different from what's happened before...
Fellow shibes there will be another market high. This is just a temporary swing within a market that is growing quickly and people that are enthusiastic about it's future. There's going to be falls but there will also be gains. Think about how to develop Doge's infrastructure through apps, services and marketplaces accepting Doge. Think about where we'll donate to next, think about the wonderful things the Dogecoin community has done and what we'll do for the future.
Guys this isn't the end, it's the beginning. It's still early days and we still haven't seen close to what Doge is capable of. I'm a heavy trader and miner but I'll never be attached to any coin as much as I'm attached to Dogecoin.
I'll continue spreading the word of Doge and I'm going to keep trading to grab as much Doge as I can because I believe that this community has connected crypto and humanity together more than any other coin ever has.
TL;DR: Much history, such moon, very believe.
Hold your head high /dogecoin. We'll go to the moon so long as we keep the enthusiasm we've had since the coin was at its high. I believe in this coin and the community. To the moon!

Why the price of DOGE is falling and will continue to. SUCH MAFFS. SO LOGIC. WOW.

TLDR; Dogecoin is one of the most profitable coins to mine, so people are mining and dumping for profit. Will probably still drop by ~10-25%. Woof. http://i.imgur.com/NRVOtRI.jpg
A lot of people are posting about the price of Dogecoin and are concerned with its price. There is speculation that is misleading and not backed up by much theory. It’s not just as simple as supply and demand, panic selling or the line of best fit on a graph. Let’s look at the maths and see why the coin is dropping so rapidly and why now.
MAFFS
The difficulty of mining a block of DOGE currently ranged from 300-400 [1], the higher this goes the less coin you will mine. To make things simple let’s run an example: Assume you have 1000kHash of digging power; with that you could mine at the current difficulty level approx. 30,000 DOGE a day [2]! The value of Dogecoin is tightly tied to Bitcoin, we first convert it to BTC and sell that. The price for a single DOGE is roughly 0.00000040 BTC [3] and a BTC is worth around $850 [4]. In our 24 hours of work we earn $10.20 (0.00000040 * 30000 * 850). Wow. Such pawfit.
Now compare this to the ‘standard’ of scrypt mining, Litecoin. For the same time and strength of your digging you would yield around $8.50. If you were only interested in profit you would mine DOGE and sell it because it made you the most profit for your hashrate. A lot of people are doing this, including multicoin pools, they mine the most profitable coin and convert it to BTC. It’s simply efficient. This means that there is a huge dump of coin on the market and the price will fall.
SPECULATION
When will the coin stop dropping in price? When it is no longer the most profitable coin, so probably around 0.00000030 to 0.00000035 BTC. At this price the profitability is too low to reward these types of miners. Alternatively, if the difficulty was to increase then the amount of coins earned (EDIT: coins per person, overall supply per time is constant! More miners = lower split per miner) would be reduced and the profit margins would also decrease, I’d estimate the difficulty would need to be around 450 to 500 to balance out. The difficulty increases if more people mine the coin, and at this point that will be depending on popularity.
Sure a few people are panic selling but comparatively this is a drop in the ocean and even so it will just help the coin reach its stable price a little faster. Anybody who wants to see the coin succeed is already doing what they need to, they are not concerned with the price, remember to have fun!
Another point to note is that over the last few days the price of BTC has risen, and so even if the price of DOGE was stable the exchange ratio for DOGE->BTC would still show a fall – this is slightly misleading and the fall in price is not as hard as it seems!
So what can you do? Wait. The price will level out and over time the difficulty should increase with popularity and in around 1-2 months the reward will halve, I'd expect a big peak in price around that time. The coin is young and popular; it needs to learn the Earth before it can go to the Moon.

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 49 - Such Memories

Hey all! GoodShibe here!
So, yesterday I started putting this thing together and WOW did you come out in droves to help! Thank you so much for sharing your ideas and memories. And thank you kindly to the mods for stickying that post!
In one day we reached 60% completion on a list of top 100 Memories and Achievements of Dogecoin! That's amazing! So many fantastic memories and accomplishments!
Which leads me to share some developments.
The title of this endeavor is now - unless someone comes up with something better:
Such Memories: The First 100 Days of Dogecoin
I'm going to be putting this together as a 100-ish paged commemorative book - for free in PDF, probably with some cost as a fancy, printed book (Sold as close to 'at cost' as I can get it -- slipstream- has recommended selling it at a small profit, with profits going toward charities or Dogecoin Foundation for charities, etc - thoughts?).
Artists, if you've got Dogecoin-themed artwork you want to see in this, please, put forward some links to hi-res CMYK copies and I'll do my best to fit it in.
Also! Let's find the funniest, best Dogecoin-related memes that we have put together so far and include them as well! :D)
We're also going to need a cover.
Any artists out there care to try their hand at designing a cover for this?
We'll put it to the community to vote for the one they like the most, and we'll include the others in the book somewhere :D) If you're an artist who submits to the project, you'll get full credit and promotion for your site inside the book (probably in a credits section at the back).
I also want to hear from the community - think up some interesting stories, maybe what got you into Dogecoin. What your fondest memories of Dogecoin are. These first 100 days have been an exciting rollercoaster of adventure... let's make that we never forget all the fun memories we've had together. If you have personal, fun pictures you'd like to share, fun, personal stories you want to see get into the book, then start working on them now, put them into the comments, keep them on hand!.

New to Cryptocurrency? Please read this, my advice from following the crypto community.

Hey folks --
Incredibly unexpectedly to me, DogeCoin seems to have struck a chord with the world, and now I'm seeing all sorts of new people into cryptocurrency. Welcome! To me, the cryptocurrency scene is utterly fascinating. However, as it is so new and money is involved, it can be quite dangerous. So, I'd like to share some advice that I've attained through being involved in the community for awhile:
This is the main point I want to make, and the rest are just supporting details. There are good people and there are scammers. There are opportunities to grow and learn and contribute cool things, and there are sharks that will take advantage of people and fraud them out of money. There are genuine market dynamics as well alongside massive manipulation, and it's hard to tell which is which without studying it for awhile. There aren't any rules, there can be rampant greed a times, there are always bubbles on bubbles on bubbles (see http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/body/mind-over-money.html -- this basically shows that humans naturally make financial bubbles and how the entire market is ruled by psychology). I have no doubt that cryptocurrency will be studied for years, academically, as "what happens in a free market." Fascinating stuff. Just know what you're getting yourself into!
First of all, buying cryptocurrency is not really investing, it's much closer to gambling. I have never recommended purchase of any crypto with dollars to anyone, but I always recommend mining, because it's quite inexpensive and makes it easier to treat these coins as magic funny money. Pretty much all cryptocurrency "value" is just the amount of bitcoin people are trading it for, and bitcoin is an extremely volatile asset that can and has dropped in value 50%+ overnight, and that isn't any different with DogeCoin.
This is why I want to keep the DogeCoin community lighthearted. It's never fun to lose money, but everyone needs to understand that, unless they are just mining, any money they put into it can be lost. Not trying to scare everyone away! Just be careful.
Even though I wouldn't recommend purchasing over mining, if you insist, I would always recommend going through http://coinbase.com, purchasing bitcoin, and trading it for dogecoin at market value on one of the major exchanges (bter, vircurex, coinedup, imo. Cryptsy, as you have seen, is a bit of a toilet) as opposed to purchasing anything on ebay/paypal, even though it is faster. First of all, people mark up the price on ebay, because they are targetting newbies. Second of all, paypal will not honor any cryptocurrency agreement, so if the buyer files a dispute, the seller won't get the money - another reason for markup. This goes for selling as well, for the same reasons.
The vast majority of people are honest, but not everyone, so be careful and diligent. Don't use the same password twice, set up 2-factor authentication wherever you can. Forums often get hacked and steal passwords, and sometimes site operators aren't safe and have your passwords hidden in plaintext.
Your wallet.dat file holds are your coins. If you lose that, you are toast. If someone copies that file from you, they can steal all your coins. You want to encrypt it and use a very strong password, and back it up - on a thumb drive, etc. Or export the private key and write it down somewhere (google paper wallet for how to accomplish this)
Note that there is a bug right now for some windows platforms when encrypting the wallet. I'll fix it soon..ish... >_<
When you're using an exchange, pool, or online wallet, keep in mind that at any point they can go down or be hacked. It's best to keep the payout threshold low in pools and only keep money in online exchanges you find trustworthy with 2-factor authentication. Considering its newness, DogeCoin does not yet have long running trusted services, so of course not saying dogewallet (or any other wallet service that will come about for dogecoin) is untrustworthy, but that it is a risk to keep too much coin in any type of online wallet.
(Note - dogewallet turned out to be a unsafe/compromised/maybe a scam)
If you're mining Dogecoin with a graphics card, you can also mine with your CPU at the same time (though generally you'll need to use MAX_CPU_THREADS - 1 to avoid issues). There are some coins that are essentially CPU only -- the most interesting of these, I find, are Primecoin and Protoshares. The easiest way to do this is to go through http://www.ypool.net and follow the instructions from that site. Both these coins are well established and have interesting algorithms. Mining two coins at once -- much profit!
This is my last piece of advice to all. This is the tone I hope to always keep for DogeCoin. The cryptocommunity is full of elitism and greed, and it makes sense in from a psychological standpoint. People get very invested and want to thwart away anything that entrenches on their territory. I hope that the DogeCoin community will never get that way. I want us to understand how that happens and resist it. Even though 5 new coins just came out that essentially cut and paste DogeCoin, we don't need to trash their coins and feign being superior to everyone - there will be many more popular coins that come out in the future. And really, I mean, c'mon. I slapped a dog on a coin :) Let's remember that and continue to do what I am seeing right now, which is incredibly welcoming, generous, and fun.
Thanks folks. Enjoy your holidays :)

Happy World Water Day from doge4water - Project Update

Hello all shibes!
Today is World Water Day! It is also the original target date of our doge4water fundraiser. We completed our goal one week early last friday with the now famous $11,000 tweet by @savethemhood.
Today is a perfect day to update everyone on the progress of our fundraiser. We are 8 days away from charity:water's 3/31 fundraiser cut off date. This means that they close the books, gather all money they have raised, and prepare to deploy out into Kenya!
Here is my update:
What's Next
Once the rest of the money clears, I will be sending a check to charity:water's corporate office in NYC. I'll update you all once this happens.
Full gallery of images here.
If you have any suggestions for improvement, or criticism add a note below.

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 189 - The State of Dogecoin

Hey all! GoodShibe... on Vacation!
Please enjoy this post by Guest Writer thistime1 and tip them well ;D)
Note: To tip them directly: +dogetipbot @thistime1 xxx doge verify
I have collected as much data as I could possibly find and contacted as many major players in the Dogecoin community as I could. I hope you all find this synthesis of information informative and worthy of discussion.
Anything that was announced in the few days before this was posted may not be included here, due to me working on this for the last 2 weeks! Sorry if I missed you.
I hope to do this again, maybe even as a quarterly report.
Please take all the information presented to you here and make your own conclusions about how important each piece of data is to YOUR view of Dogecoin.
Price
1 Doge = $0.00029 USD
Price would have to increase ~750% to be back at peak value ($0.0022/dogecoin).
COMPARED TO LITECOIN
1 LTC = $7.60 USD
Price would have to increase ~650% to be back at peak value ($48/litecoin).
Market Capitalization
7th of all digital currencies, ~$23 Million USD
Our market cap has been declining the last few months, most coin’s have. I am excited to know what our year-to-year price change will be as that is a better measure of change than the last 30 days.
For the past few days I have been trying to find a graph of the TOTAL market cap of all coins together over time.
I have a theory that not a lot of money is being put into cryptocurrencies at the moment, and the coins that go up in value are taking away value from others. What do you think?
I want to know if this is true, or if I am crazy. If that is somewhat true, there is a limit to how many coins will make it big.
I'd love to just see the total ALTCOIN market cap over time as well.
Hashrate/Halving
Hashrate = ~50GH/s
Oddly, this is about the same hashrate we had after the last halving! ASICs inbound…
I could not find what proportion of the SCRYPT hashrate we have over time, as that is the best measure of hashrate in relation to other coins.
I do have this though.
Litecoin’s hashrate is about 10 times larger than ours now.
The current block reward (recent halving) will create 90 Million Dogecoins/day or 38.7BTC at current prices.
This means that if ALL mined Dogecoins are sold every day they would only make up 3.8-7.5% off all transaction volume per day, which is around 500-1000BTC/day.
When the price stays the same, we can assume 250-500BTC of Dogecoins are bought or sold in that day. Therefore miners do not make up a large portion of the selling anymore, and they haven't for a while.
Another BIG assumption you have to make is that 38.7BTC cannot move markets. From my personally observations, the Cryptsy DOGE/BTC market controls the price of Dogecoin. I have watched the Chinese markets (BTC100, BTC38, BTER) respond to changes in price after they happen on Cryptsy. ~38BTC can have a HUGE impact on price if buy/sell walls are not there to support it.
We need more demand, but it is nice to have less pressure from miners anyways.
Liquidity is still much much higher with Litecoin though!
Transactions per Day
Dogecoin has more transactions per day Litecoin, and all other altcoins.
Sent from addresses
Dogecoin has more unique addresses sending coins per day than Litecoin, and all other altcoins.
Average Transaction Value
Average Litecoin transaction value for today was $9,380 USD.
Average Dogecoin transaction value for today was $122 USD.
Average Bitcoin transaction value for today was $3,250 USD.
http://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/transactionvalue-btc-ltc-doge.html Dogecoin is potentially being used exactly as intended. Lots of people sending small amounts of money to each other or things.
I am stunned that the AVERAGE person sending Litecoins that day, sent almost $10K.
That is 3x higher than Bitcoin. In fact, oddly, Litecoin always has a higher average transaction value than Bitcoin since the Bitcoin bubble in late 2013. Anybody know why?
We usually DO NOT have higher transaction volumes than Litecoin, but we do consistently have ~500-1000BTC/day that is transacted, putting Dogecoin in the top 5 most traded coins.
Dogecoin Address Growth
Dogecoin has also GAINED 14,653 positive addresses in the month of June, where Litecoin has LOST 33,875. (info from bitinfocharts and currency4world)
Wikipedia Statistics (http://stats.grok.se/)
Bitcoin traffic – Average ~9000 views in the last 90 days (highest 18614 views/day) – total views/90 days 819,193
Litecoin traffic – Average ~380 views in the last 90 days (highest 998 views/day) – total views/90 days 40,036
Dogecoin traffic – Average ~1200 views in the last 90 days (highest 8629 views/day) – total views/90 days 154,415
Circlejerking Statistics
Bitcoin recently surpassed 1 Yottahash, I believe we are up to almost 1 Yottajerk of circlejerking power. I am excited for a few years from now, when the QuantumJerk ASICs are released.
Every time I read someone calling /dogecoin a circlejerk I laugh, not because they are wrong, but because they are just stating the obvious.
Do you think there is someone in the corner of the room at NASA who just comments about how all they talk about is rockets and space?
If dreaming big and congratulating ourselves on our achievements is a circlejerk, then I guess it’s human to circlejerk. Every subreddit is a circlejerk, the only difference in /dogecoin is that you can get tips from circlejerking. (Is that prostitution?)
The main point of this section was to see how many times I could type circlejerk.
Foundation
The new Dogecoin Foundation is now a legal enitiy and will have a road map of working projects
Personally I would love to see someone from the Chinese Dogecoin community represented on the Foundation. They buy and sell a lot of Dogecoins Maybe just a liason position or something.
At the very least, during fundraisers, the Chinese community should be contacted to see if they want to help out!
Development
Dogecoin is the ONLY altcoin with the Core/Wallet/qt based off of Bitcoin 0.9. Dogecoin Core will be kept up to date and features from the Bitcoin Core will be adopted quickly. The devs are doing great so far, especially against coins with full-time PAID developers!
CrytoSaga
Unprecedented cryptocurrency modeling software will be written to test possible outcomes to changes in Dogecoin’s algorithm. Main candidates are PoS 2.0, Tendermint, and SIMD. To my knowledge, this has never been created before in all of cryptocurrency, and will definitely further highlight the abilities of Dogecoin’s development team.
A payment protocol is also being worked on.
Cryptiv
Dogetipbot
Twitch tipping with dogetipbot will go live soon! You can sign up to be invited to the beta, here.
After Twitch tipping goes live, there will be a huge announcement
I have followed what mohland and dvorwak have said about it, here.
Coingecko
Price might not be so encouraging at the moment, but stay faithful. Keep up the good work. Encourage more people to join. The community is something special. I have strong faith that it will be heading to the moon!
Coinplay.io
http://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/news/kansas-city-startup-incubator-partners-dogecoin-based-coinplay-io/2014/07/09
Suchlist
SnapCard
Buy ANYTHING in Dogecoins that is for sale online. Available in over 50 countries. Only BTC, LTC, DOGE, and XRP are supported.
WeSellDoges
Onarbor
The biggest new Onarbor feature announcement is ability to back and re-back works and reviews. This was the top request so we're glad to finally implement it. Coming soon will be more tailored feeds where we will allow people to follow creators that interest them (will allow TwitteFB/linkedin auth to find friends/colleagues).
What can Dogecoin do better?
Marketing
For a coin that has done some of the best marketing out there, we suck at getting major announcements across on multiple platforms.
I am hoping /dogecoin_pr will bring this up to par.
EXAMPLE:
51.54% of Dogecoin users are on Dogecoin Core 1.6.( http://bitinfocharts.com/dogecoin/)
Maybe merchants and such are not to keen on updating if it is not required, but maybe they just do not know about 1.7.
When 1.8 comes out, I would love to see a sticky thread on the subreddit, an announcement on the official Dogecoin Twitter and Facebook pages, an announcement on the front of the BitcoinTalk forum, as well as contacting cryptonews websites.
Dogecoin has a large social media presence and should be taking advantage of THAT!
Tipping
I am concerned that there are not that many external deposits made to everyone’s dogetipbot accounts. Until there are more tipping users, I fear that we may be only be tipping coins that were tipped to us in the first place. That is not the best way to build demand. I am hoping mohland has some data on this.
I strongly believe in the tipping economy and culture of Dogecoin, and personally, that is how I think we can best build demand. Until we have more tipping users, it is up to us to build that demand, and the work could pay off.
Dogecoin.com
I know you powerlemons is working on updating this, but the website is COMPLETELY MISSING a section on how to accept Dogecoin. This should be just as big as the other coloured sections!
ALSO
This should be added to the “Get Dogecoin” section at the bottom of the page.
I have tried to keep it updated as much as possible, but would love the community to notify me of any changes
COMMENTS
Josh Wise
“I have said this to a few people in the community but my two cents on this is to keep it fun, charitable, and stick to the fundamentals that made the community grow so much initially. My personal opinion (and I really have no clue what I am talking about) is that this community grew so fast because it was so much fun, anything seemed possible, everything seemed worth trying and there were not many negative undertones with anything. It seems like people are really getting wrapped up in a lot of negatives right now and that is never productive. The law of attraction will rule in the end and as long as people are positive- no matter the circumstance- the circumstance will become positive. I love this place and wish only the best for dogecoin and the community, and like I said, I have no clue as to all of the intricacies and the many moving parts past and present. Only my two cents on what I see (:
As far as upcoming projects- I am still working on some new shirts by popular demand. I would really love to either race the Dogecoin car in a few Superspeedway races next year, or try to raise money so that we can run the rear bumper all season. I am super thankful for all that has come of this and want to continue to help build the brand and awareness in any ways possible. A lot of that is really up to the community though and not me.”
Co-founder (BillyM2K aka Shibetoshi Nakamoto)
“A community that is having fun, building cool things, and coming together for great causes and fun causes alike is exceptionally more valuable than one that is trying desperately to create value by finger pointing, complaining, witch hunting, attempting to market useless features, and ultimately eating itself.”
thistime1 - High Anxiety Shibe
I hope you all learned something today. I tried really hard to make sure that was the case.
Who do I love?
It's 7:41AM EST and we've found 87.49% of our initial 100 Billion DOGEs -- only 12.51% remains until our period of Hyper-inflation ends! Our Global Hashrate is up from ~44 to ~47 Gigahashes per second and our Difficulty is up from ~708 to ~724.
I Hope you enjoyed today's Guest Post by thistime1!

[Guide] No hardware to mine? How to net 6,000+Ð/day using Windows Azure

Inspired by lleti 's free guide for using Amazon Web Services. However, from what I understand due to rental costs, it is more efficient to buy doge directly than use AWS. This guide is based on utilizing the $200 credit that comes with the Windows Azure cloud computing free trial, so you will not pay anything.
This is targeted at shibes with poor hardware that can only mine 50-200 doge per day, but it will work for everyone.
Disclaimer: Doge rate is an estimate based on current difficulties and market. Windows Azure trial may be US only (?)
Overview / How it works
You will not be mining doge directly with this method. Mining doge effeciently requires a GPU, which aren't found in traditional servers. Instead, we will be using the powerful CPUs provided with Windows Azure servers to mine a CPU based crypto-currency, such as QuarkCoin or SecureCoin, and convert those to doge.
Steps
1) Install your QRK or SRC wallet
Ideally if you are reading this, you have installed a dogecoin-qt wallet for yourself before. We will need to do the same for either QuarkCoin or SecureCoin. This is the wallet where will will send the coins you mine with your Windows Azure servers.
These are not the only CPU coin options, but QRK and SRC are very similar (same hash function) and simple to mine.
Once you have installed the wallet, it should look very similar to your DogeCoin wallet. If you have trouble downloading the blockchain ('out of sync'), look at these threads respectively to see which nodes you need to add to your config file. Config files are located at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\CoinName.conf on Windows.
2) Set up a mining pool account
If you have joined a mining pool for DogeCoin, it will be a very similar experience for other alt coins. See the following bitcointalk threads which have a list of mining pools:
If you would like a pool recommendation, I can recommend src.coinmine.pl and qrk.coinmine.pl; this is from personal experience, I am not affiliated with them.
Once you are logged in you should also create 3 workers, as we will be setting up 3 servers, one for each server. So you should have 3 worker names, and a password set up for each worker.
3) Sign up for Windows Azure free trial
Link: www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/
You will have to provide a valid credit card and verify your account with a cell phone so they know you are a real person. This is a Microsoft product so they are reputable. Once you sign up, you will receive a $200 to use in 30 days. Remember to cancel when your credits are running out so they don't charge you.
4) Create Windows Server instances
I would recommend you watch this video which walks you through the UI of the Windows Azure management site to set up the virtual machines we need. Essentially we are going to do the following:
Thus we have a total of 20 CPU cores to mine QRK / SRC with. We want the the most CPU power we can get without excessively burning our $200 credit. That's why 2008 R2 is used, and only 3 instances of it.
5) Remotely connect to servers and download miner
This section is also covered in the video from section 4, watch it for a visual walkthrough.
Once the servers have been initialized on Microsoft's end, we should be able to access them under 'Virtual Machines' at www.manage.windowsazure.com. You should see each host name and a status, and when selected there should be an additional 'Connect' button - click it.
You should now be prompted to download a .rdp file. Download this for each of your 3 virtual machines to a folder you will remember. You will open this .rdp file and use the login credentials you previously specified to connect to each server.
Once you are remotely connected, you should see the desktop. Open up the first icon on the taskbar that looks like a server, this is your server manager. We need to open up the 'Configure IE ESC' setting that's visible on this pane. Make sure 'Off' is selected for both admins and users on the IE ESC configuration.
Now, open up the IE browser and navigate to https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9cvOfoOekSdVzZZcThLZHg4bjA/edit. Press Ctrl + S to download the entire zip to the desktop, and un-zip it.
6) Configure and start miner
Again, this is pretty much covered in the video from section 4, if you prefer watching.
You should now have a folder on your server's desktop named quark-v2_w64. This is the miner for both QRK and SRC. We are going to be using minerd64_sse4.exe. Create a shortcut to minerd64_sse4.exe within the same folder. We now need to add the parameters for your miner.
Right click on your minerd64_sse4.exe shortcut -> Properties. Look at the target field, it should look like this:
C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\quark-v2_w64\minerd64_sse4.exe
We are going append the following format to this target field
-a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u user.worker -p password
-a: algorithm, both SRC and QRK use 'quark'
-t: number of cores (so either 8 or 4 for our purposes)
-o: mining pool information (url and port).
-u: account you have for your mining pool, then a period, then a worker name
-p: password that you created for the worker in step 2
So here is an example of what the target field of your shortcut should look like when you are done:
C:\Users\Nexic\Desktop\quark-v2_w64\minerd64_sse4.exe -a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u Nexic.worker1 -p pass1
7) Profit!!
If you set up your miners correctly on each Windows Server VM (I prefer to assign a separate worker to each one), you should be able to run them and see an output like this: http://i.imgur.com/3lECqSz.png. You can close your remote sessions without interrupting it.
How do you get the doge, you ask? Well, using the above setup I have earned 10 SecureCoins in the past 2 days. These are worth 0.00094 bitcoins (BTC) on Cryptsy at present. A doge is worth 0.0000007 BTC at present, so if I go from SRC -> BTC -> DOGE, I can turn 5 SRC to 6,642 DOGE on Cryptsy. There are also other exchanges, I won't go into how to exchange coins on this post. Remember, this is every day for about a week, for free!
Also, you can CPU mine on your own personal computers as well, not just the servers.
TL;DR
Mine QuarkCoin / SecureCoin using Windows Azure free trial, use Cryptsy (or other exchange) to convert to DOGE. Much more efficient than CPU mining Doge.

My prediction 26 days ago...

26 days ago... I called it
Like I've said before in this post. This market is heavily manipulated. Some people have hundreds of bitcoins and it isn't difficult to move the market when you have that kind of purchasing power.
This current downtrend was due to the following chain of events: 1.) No major news for dogecoin. 2.) Multipools cheating out other pools by snagging high value blocks. 3.) AuroraCoin stealing some of our thunder Another predicton of mine when it was at $20 and climbed to $93/AUR.
With no major news events, new members dropped. Keep in mind there isn't anything to base a currency on other than news articles and membership! That's even true for bitcoin! So in this bizzaro world, No News is Bad News. Secondly we had multipools gaming the system to obtain more dogecoins. This in turn lead miners to leaving the game because it's not fair, or rigged. This leads to a drop in hashrate which many speculators see as a trend in how valuable a coin is. Put this all together and you get a perfect storm for whales to create a dump.
But a funny thing happened. The price hit 103 satoshi's and 20 to 30 bitcoins were dropped like a hat causing the price to rise. It's now almost at 120 satoshi's (THAT'S A 20 FREAK'n PERCENT PROFIT PEOPLE!).
But why? What changed?
This
The Mods announced a fix to the problem and the whales took that as good news. They easily dropped a substancial amount of bitcoin buying up while everyone else was panic selling.
So what's my next prediction?
Either doge will drop under 100, or it'll remain in the low 100's until the next big news comes along (expect a pump a couple weeks prior to the halving). Either way it's sticking around. 70,000 shibes don't go quietly into the night my friend. They bark loudly and wake up the neighbors who have to wake up early to take their kids to school the next day.
Stand tuff doges.

All new beta version of doge.yottabyte.nu is open for public!

Click here to go to the beta site!
Updates March 29th:
Holy shibe time goes fast when you're busy. I haven't done anything since last update, sorry. I'll try and squeeze some time in this weekend to add at least Prelude to the beta site. Can't promise more than that.
Updates March 15th:
Been very busy recently so I haven't had a lot of time to work on the site. Most functions should be running well atm. Here's the top of my todo list as of now:
ORIGINAL POST
Hey everyone! I've been blown away by the amount of traffic coming to my site the past couple of months. This is definitely my most visited website by far. The site has been very static since early January though. As I've hinted on in the old thread, this is because I've been working on a new version of the site. It's taken way longer than I expected it to, but now it's at a point where I think it can be released to the public.
Some stats since the 14th December release:
  • 2,000,000+ pageviews
  • 1,000,000+ visits
  • 156,000+ unique visitors
And now on to the features of the new site:
  • Much faster updates, being pushed to your browser as the trades come through, instead of your browser querying for new updates every few seconds.
  • Live view of orderbook, in both DOGE and BTC
  • Convert to more currencies! Currently supporting USD, SEK and PLN, please request other exchanges/currencies to add if you want them.
  • Currency conversions now update live and save between sessions
  • Candlestick charts! Oh yes.
  • Interact with the charts (zoom and drag!)
  • Live updates of dogecoin statistics: block, difficulty and hashrate.
  • Volume bars
  • Exponential moving average and simple moving average.
  • Price alerts! (Currently only works using Chrome notifications)
Some questions that I assume you guys might have:
Where did the other exchanges go?
I did not prioritize adding these exchanges because the volume is so low and trades happen so rarely. They're not as fun to watch. I will be adding more exchanges as the code gets more lightweight. For now, they still exist on the old site at least.
Why no more pretty dogecoin ads?
I'm just trying out Google Adsense to see how profitable it can be (compared to dogecoin services). Still have not decided whether it stays.
Wow this looks a lot like Bitcoinwisdom
I know. In fact, when I built the foundation it was very inspired by Bitcoinwisdom, just like the old version was by Bitcoinity. These are both awesome sites that I use all the time. As I was working on the site, Bitcoinwisdom released their DOGE graphs. There wasn't really a point to stop working though so I decided to keep it this way, cause I just like it the way it looks. Since then I've been aiming at making it the best of both worlds, taking inspiration from many different chart sites to get the best experience out there.
Vault of Satoshi, please?
I've been looking into adding VoS since they started DOGE trading. Unfortunately their API lacks one important feature, which means I can't add a graph. Sorry.
Kraken, please?
Kraken has already been added and is coming live on the site once I've worked out some bugs!
Why can't we see data older than [date]??
Older data was collected using different methods. It can kind of be converted to work in the new charts but it won't be as accurate. I will definitely be doing this in the near future anyway. Bter has an awesome API, so I was able to download all the data since they opened for DOGE trading. You can go on the Bter graph if you want to see December data for now.
Where are the DOGE/DOGE charts?
Coming soon.
[INSERT QUESTION HERE]

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 736 - The (Unneccessary) Fall of Cryptsy

Hey all, GoodShibe here!
So, wow, some really interesting and, well, disturbing news about Cryptsy is in the wind.
When I say 'disturbing' by the way, I'm talking about the completely casual admission from Cryptsy themselves that 'oh, yeah, by the way, about a year and a half ago, we lost a crap-ton of your money and elected to not say anything'.
It's a wonderfully technical recounting of events.
Cold and clinical and utterly devoid of remorse.
Man, it's days like this that I really miss Vault of Satoshi.
Here's the hard thing: instinctively, I understand the thought process... can even empathize, to an extent. You're someone who's worked hard to build a business and a brand - to become a pillar of the Cryptosphere. Maybe you've even done everything right up until this point... and then some little piss-ant sneaks behind the curtain and tears everything down around you.
All of a sudden, you're the next Mount Gox.
Destined to go down in history as a ridiculed footnote of Crypto-coin lore.
Yeah, no wonder you "didn't want to cause a panic".
Because, as anyone knows in crypto -- and anyone who runs an exchange is going to be hyper-aware of this -- trust is the only currency that matters. And after Mt. Gox? Trust is a very fragile commodity.
What do you do when you've just had ~20,000 BTC stolen from your coffers?
The Ethical thing would be to explain everything there and then. Publicly build a plan of action, explain and share the process of the investigation. Share the known location of the coins -- hell, in moments, at the time, you probably could have rallied SEVERAL crypto-communities to your side; had some of the very best minds across the cryptosphere working to help you.
Because here's another simple truth: NO ONE wanted another Mt. Gox.
Trust would have been damaged, sure, but I suspect it could have been recovered had you, in time, identified what happened and shown everyone how sophisticated the attack actually was. That it wasn't necessarily you asleep at the wheel. If you had come forward and said "hey, we've got the reserves, we'll take this on the chin as a cost of being part of this grand experiment with you".
Because, yes, so much of all of this is one great, grand experiment and by showing humility and working to advance all of our knowledge of how to protect ourselves, maybe... maybe it wouldn't have been so bad. It would've stung, but you, with work, could've recovered.
If it had actually been about your customers, the people who'd put their trust in you.
But "maybe* is a big word when your legacy is on the line, your years of hard work. You're the victim here, right?
So... if you happen to look at your balance sheet and see that, yeah, you can just... make it go away, pretend that it never happened... why bother, right?
Why even risk it at all?
Except it means that for, who knows how long, you're riding on a very capricious edge.
Owner of an exchange for not just one but hundreds of extremely volatile cryptocurrencies.
Is that why you went from friendly, accessible 'Big Vern' who seemed like he was everywhere to the quiet, recluse that we've seen lately?
The problem with having ones ethics thrown into question is that all sorts of things, things that only existed as rumors and backroom talk end up taking on a whole new life. Was Cryptsy aware of the market manipulation that was going on? Was it... sanctioned? Maybe, in knowing which way something was going to move... well, would that help to fill a 20,000 BTC hole? I'm not saying that anything actually happened, but one certainly begins to wonder what steps one might take.
Because no one 'just accepts' a 20,000 BTC loss without trying to find a way to get it back.
The most frustrating thing about all of this is this:
The fact that Cryptsy lasted this long despite a supposed "run on the bank", despite the many supposed "smear" campaigns against you is a testament to how much the various communities wanted you to exist.
There are so many other, better ways this could have played out.
We need a trusted place to do business, now more than ever.
Instead -- and the Dogecoin Community has some scarily first-hand knowledge of this with the fall of Moolah -- we get to watch as the wheels so very slowly start to fall off. As, one by one, the complaints begin to bubble up from the cracks until the whole thing is torn apart from fear and frustration and anger.
So... now you've got a lawsuit against you. A class action lawsuit. 84,000,000 DOGE is, yeah, people may laugh at our funny, silly little DOGE, but that's no amount of chump change.
Now people are pissed.
Because no one wanted another Mt. Gox.
Yet, when given the option, when faced with the choice... that's exactly the path you chose to walk.
It's 8:18AM EST and our Global Hashrate is holding at ~1260 Gigahashes per Second and our Difficulty is up from ~15082 to ~16757.
As always, I appreciate your support!

To raise the price of doge we need to use it! (List of stores/exchanges that will accept doge!)

While I love donating and tipping, doge needs to be spent on goods and services to gain value.
Now I'm not saying we should stop tipping and donating, but we should also spend some more on goods and services! Let the doge flow!
And in the light of doge4water being funded I think we should give ourselves a little present too!! So it's time to buy with doge!
Note: I am not responsible for any experiences or transactions in any of these exchanges or stores. Nor am I affiliated with any of them.
Exchanges:
If you know of any others just PM me them and I will add them as soon as I can
Stores/Donation Sites:
This list is not comprehensive, if I missed anything PM me and I can add it.
Directory/Sites like Ebay or Craigslist:
Again this list is not comprehensive. If you have any more suggestions please PM me
(Some of the stores aren't listed but are on the directories and some sites are listed and on the directories, by the way)
And finally a video for you guys :).

The history of mooncoin anno 2014

Mooncoin History
In fact YOU are writing it now. "Fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die".
BTW do you know that Mr. Chris P.Thompson has included Mooncoin in his book about Cryptocurrency? At the moment his another book titled 'Mooncoin. Philosophy of Decentralisation' is in progress!
And that during 2 days after a launch of Mooncoin (December 30, 2013), people have posted ~2,000 posts in Mooncoin thread at the largest crypto forum Bitcointalk?
Do you know that in January, 2014, a $170'000 was the market value of 1 Billion of Mooncoins and 24 hour volume was ~ 1+ Billion of Mooncoins? People remember 20+ Satoshi for 1 Mooncoin on coinex.pw and a very large trading volume, and ~2000 Litoshi at Cryptsy when a price of LTC was ~$20.
An interesting fact is that in 2015 Mooncoin became the first coin which had implemented an advanced payment gateway, that allowed to buy using Mooncoin on the largest and famous internet marketplaces (Amazon.com, eBay.com, Overstock, Groupon, Barnes&Noble etc.) Unfortunately, the project had been alive only during several days and then automatic exchanging of MOON->BTC (provided by coingateway.net) had stopped working, at the very moment when people were ready to start buying with Mooncoins. Coingateway.net had stopped delivering a service and answering support tickets as soon as they had got their reward and a bonus in Mooncoins. As you probably know, the Mooncoin community never gives up! At the moment you can buy with Mooncoins through the payment gateway of Cointopay, a Netherlands-based company.
Have you heard anything of deaconboogie, a legendary and mysterious creator of Mooncoin, who had disappeared suddenly after having reported health problems? We don't know what happened to him, but due to his sudden disappearing Mooncoin has managed to prove its decentralised nature - it's time tested now and is working well even without its original developer.
Do you know that after cyber attacks against PCs of three Mooncoin users in December, 2014 (organised by Dark Side) the Mooncoin source code was examined by an independent expert, Titan, Luckycoin's developer (Dogecoin was basedon Luckycoin). CHECKED.OK. Please don't forget toprotect your PC against attacks!
Newbies are often told at crypto related forums about how insecure Proof-of-Work coins are, and that someone with a 51% of hash power can do whatever he/she wants with a network. Meanwhile there were only pretty unsuccessful attacks against the Mooncoin network, the last attack was with the hash power of 30 times higher than other Mooncoin miners had together (who could do that? this kind of attack costs really a lot) and again with no success.
Mooncoin is a fair coin with no premine, nor IPOs/ICOs. Here is an interesting detailed independent investigation into fairness of distribution/mining of many well-known coins. The author says regarding Mooncoin: "This isn't a sneaky or hidden fastmine". At the same time he indicates that: "The first reward halving goes from 2,000,000 for the first 100,000 blocks to 1,000,000 up to block 200,000. After that, the block reward begins to halve faster; at block 250,000 (600K Mooncoin), then block 300,000 (350K Mooncoin) and block 350,000 (175K Mooncoin). This shortens the block generation period in half, which quickens the rate of coin generation to a smaller amount. This process accelerates as block 375,000 ends a quick 25,000 block generation period of 100K Mooncoin. A mere 9,000 blocks, up to 384,000 blocks, brings about another block halving to 50K Mooncoin. After this, the rest of the coin generation is a tepid 29,531 Mooncoins per block. Bitcoin's block halving is simple and slow. From 50 BTC per block, to 25 BTC, to 12.5 BTC, and to 6.25 BTC per block over 16 years. Mooncoin was started on December 30th, 2013. By March 26th there were 58 billion Mooncoin, which was about 15% of the total expected production. By May, there were 98 billion Mooncoins in existence, representing 25% of the total expected production". There are also very interesting facts about Nxt, Dash (formerly Darkcoin) and other famous coins in the investigation. And it's interesting what would the author say about ICO coins which are popular these days?
The Coingecko's summary for Mooncoin confirms that 'There is no premine for this coin'.
To prove that Mooncoin was really fair unlike many coins, even with a described above scheme of reward halving, there is one simple fact: first adopters couldn't gain a lot at the beginning simply because of when rewards were big, more miners were mining Mooncoin (see above: during 2 days after a launch of Mooncoin people have posted ~2,000 posts in Mooncoin thread at the largest crypto forum which indicates how many miners were active those days), the author forgets that (if we speak about fairness and the first adopters) it matters how many Mooncoins ONE miner was and is able to mine and for which price he/she can/could sell it. The initial price of Mooncoin was 0.00000001 BTC and now it's not higher unlike Bitcoin's price (in 2009-2011 its price was $0.001-$1 and common people had no chance even to hear about Bitcoin, so first adopters were able to mine hundreds of thousands of bitcoins, no matter how block halving worked). Quite the opposite, in late 2013, when Mooncoin was launched, almost everyone had heard already about Bitcoin and cryptocurrency from TV, Internet, so way more people had equal chances. The launch of Mooncoin was a pre-announced event, and many people were ready to mine it (there was some mix-up at the beginning though). Also on December, 28, 2013 an original developer had made an announcement: "On July 21st, 2014 it will be the 45th anniversary of the lunar landing by the Apollo 11 astronauts. On this date, Mooncoin will begin to release one MOON for every USD spent on the Apollo space program at an accelerated rate: 25.4 billion!" That was a one time only event and people had been waiting for it for 7 months.
How do you think, what made a famous domain investor from Alabama, Gregg Ostrick transfer a valuable domain mooncoin.com to the Mooncoin community when the community needed to replace offline deaconboogie's mooncoin.info? How many notable coins have their own .com domains? Litecoin, Dogecoin and ...? :)
Not to mention many other things... Moon Jedi Members, Moonlite, Smart Likes...
Mooncoin history was, is, and always will be interesting.

We got hacked, not a complaint just a community bulletin.

Hello everyone,
As of yesterday my company (in extensive my personal accounts) were hacked and cleaned out of all Bitcoin as well as other currencies of value (Litecoin, Dogecoin etc). Not writing this to complain it happened or beg for compensation, we understand this happens sometimes and there was probably more we could have done (but also in some cases there wasn't... more below).
Via our personal computer: What we had: Bitcoin (~2 I believe), Litecoin (Somewhere between 400-500), Dogecoin (Millions) wallets all cleaned out, all password protected and encrypted. What we should have done: Held all those wallets on a computer disconnected from the internet as well as making backups record private keys etc.
What we had: gmail accounts all secured with TFA via cell phones and everything. (Side note google is horrendous with dealing with compromised accounts, there is no way we are going to be able to get it back now.) What we should have done: Don't know? Anything else we could have done? What we had: Cryptsy Accounts with about 1 million Dogecoin and 0.25 BTC, that is not missing it is still there but we do not have access to it because of email confirmation requirements... which we do not have access to the email. TFA was enabled on there as well with google authenticator. What we had: Cryptostocks account with 212 Cryptsy Shares in it worth approximately 29 BTC before hacker sold under market price to withdraw plus some DVC. Also had TFA on it with Google Authenticator. So not really sure how they got past that. What we should have done: I have absolutely no idea what else we could have done. Secured out email better obviously but that is another issue in itself. 
I also scanned my computer for malware today and got this screenshot...
http://i.imgur.com/ACvoziQ.png
Does cgminer show up as Malware to anyone else?
Anyway so that is what got hacked and the security we had/didnt have in place. Any tips would be appreciated on how we can secure our holdings better in the future.
For the future we will keep coins on offline wallets and only sync when coins have been sent to it. Other then that I think everyone here gets the gist of what I am saying. Secure your coins! Be safe and any suspicious activity watch carefully!
