This thread shows Sunny King’s weekly updates between #1 and #102…
After that Sunny started posting individual update threads. These threads go from #103 to #217. After that the new team took over the updates and reset the count. Currently they go from #1 to #24. All these threads can be found in this board here…
If you’re going to cover the stuff about Peershares and NuBits, you should look up threads by Jordan Lee, who was the project leader of Nu. This project started in the Peercoin forum and unfortunately was responsible for sucking away a lot of our community members and developer talent that existed in 2014. The NuBits project eventually died after their dollar peg collapsed in 2016.
Out of all this, Jordan Lee was responsible for having the Peerunity wallet created, which was a community client that existed alongside the core client that Sunny maintained. Peerunity featured a number of upgraded features, including a button to decrypt the wallet for minting, a theme change that included graphics and colors, etc… It was generally a better user experience, so we encouraged users to download it instead of the core client. Eventually though, after the new team took over we merged all the features from Peerunity into the core client, so there only existed one main wallet again.
After your first book was released and the community got quiet for a couple years after the NuBits launch, much of the discussion actually took place in the chat box that existed on the previous forum software. Unfortunately, the backup doesn’t seem to be working anymore…
The newer team first started forming from those chat discussions in 2016. There are forum threads also from that time period, but a great deal of discussion also took place in that chat, which is inaccessible.
Fortunately, we started up https://peercoin.chat/ in the same year I believe. This chat should go all the way back to 2016. The only channels I would suggest looking into are #General and #Development. There’s a lot of filler discussion in General, but you can look for posts by team members such as myself, Peerchemist, Saeveritt, Hrobeers and Nagalim.
In 2017 we switched to the Discourse forum software, which we’re currently using. If you look at threads before this year, you may find that certain posts may be broken. On the previous software, people were able to use multiple quotes in a single post. When we converted the old forum database to Discourse, many of the quote boxes in posts were erased, so it may be difficult to understand who certain people are replying to. Other than that, all threads should still be there going back to the beginning of the forum.
We also have Telegram and Discord channels in case you want to look at those. Discord is the most recent. Telegram was made a little after we started peercoin.chat.
Anyway, I just wanted to make you aware of all this in case it helps your research. It may also be helpful to look up the post histories of our main team members. Hrobeers was also a core developer at the start of the new team, but is no longer in that list.
Let us know if you have any questions.
