I’m pretty sure it was the same Rocket Chat service. It was just the domain name that had changed.
This is true, however FuzzyBear did not complete the task and left the community shortly after. Sigmike is ultimately the developer who implemented the design.
This does not seem to be too important, plus the text snippet used after is a little immature. Is there a good reason for including mention of this article?
This sentence sounds like it may be missing words. Did you mean to say as the chart shows?
The Foundation logo here seems kinda low-res. Maybe it would make more sense to use the banner with the green backgound currently on the website here: https://peercoin.net/foundation.html
Solled was not actually hired as a paid employee or contractor. The board simply voted for him to have this responsibility. It is a volunteer role which he accepted.
Issue sounds like it needs an s at the end of it. Also does there really need to be a comma before the word code? Not sure if that’s right or not.
Maybe say that it was submitted by Nagalim.
Instead of ending the main content about a small exchange adding Peercoin trading, I think it would make more sense to end with the announcement that we were beginning testing on v0.8. As you know this upgrade will finally bring Peercoin close to being current with Bitcoin, so I think it’s nice to end on a teaser for the future: Team Update #26: Peercoin v0.8~RC1 Released for Testing
Overall great job! Thanks for the time you spent on this project!
Book cover quote: AFTER TEN MONTHS OF RESEARCH, SUNNY KING AND SCOTT NADAL LAUNCHED THE
PEERCOIN BLOCKCHAIN ON 19TH AUGUST 2012. THEY HAD INVENTED THE PROOF OF STAKE CONSENSUS MECHANISM AS THE WAY IN WHICH TO SECURE THE NETWORK PROTOCOL
Replace INVENTED by IMPLEMENTED
There were some discussions about Proof-of-Stake as a consensus system on Bitcointalk in 2011. So Sunny king and Scott Nadal didn’t invent it, but they coded the first implementation.
This is incorrect. A minter’s probability of finding a new block reaches its maximum after 90 days. After this period of time a minter’s stake reaches maturity and their chances of minting a new block are maxed out. All of these rules are put in place in order to prevent minters with high coin age from being able to hold a monopoly on the block generation process and to give others a better chance of minting.
Can we remove this part? I find it discouraging and ultimately there is no way to predict what will happen. It is true that funds are not currently used to market Peercoin while it’s development is still in need of catching up, but that won’t always be the case. Further, as we develop use cases for the chain and the number of regular users starts to increase, that will surely impact the price in some way. I don’t think we can say definitively that the answer to this is no. It also depends how many coins are owned by the individual.
I don’t have any reason to believe these addresses will change in the future, but it could always be a possibility. Maybe a better way to do this would be to link to the foundation page on the website where the addresses will always be accurate: https://peercoin.net/foundation.html
I think this still sounds like a new service started up. Again, only the name of the domain had changed. The chat service and all its history remained the same.
I mentioned this before in my last post, but this whole section here seems highly unnecessary.
I think you forgot to remove the period where you inserted the colon.
I noticed that in the interviews you bolded some of the user names for the people that are talking, but not all of them. It doesn’t look consistent because of this.
Also, I think you are missing the most important interview, Peercointalk Community Interview #2. This is the most important interview because in the beginning it’s the first time Sunny explained to us his vision of Peercoin as a backbone currency, what is called a trustless base layer today.
I feel the back of the cover would be more readable if it was not in all caps. It seems difficult to read the way it is currently presented.
After nearly three months of hard work and dedication, the Peercoin history book has been published. There are two versions on Amazon (a colour version and a black and white version). Kindle versions have also been uploaded.
US B&W version:
US Colour version:
The Kindle version has not appeared on the US Amazon website. I expect it to be available later. Here is the UK Amazon Peercoin Kindle version link:
