I sent out a newsletter about tomorrow’s events, as well as a fundraising push for our new development team and their individual projects. You can read it here…

Nice :slight_smile:


#3

Wonder when checkpoints will be dropped?


#4

You can drop them today.
Give me some money and I’ll build you a client that ignores checkpoints.

The checkpoint discussion is pointless. Just like PARS, this is just client configuration, it is not in the protocol.


#5

It matters for investor confidence.

People keep saying that… Do you think Peercoin will triple in value within 90 days after checkpoints removed? Or do you think its the same 8 or 9 people that keep saying that its important.

I keep thinking its the latter.

Ok, donate 500 ppc to PWEGsdL4js9jy6vHKnG7AnKm5fE5q7cRzb .
I’ll build you a client that doesn’t follow the checkpoints in a matter of a few days.
Then you can market the shit out of it.

For people who are not familiar with peercoin it does matter. When peercoin is brought up their is always an accusation of centralisation due to the checkpoint system. Besides having any centralisation at all hurts investor confidence and investor confidence is what ppc needs to grow.

The plan is to remove checkpoints in the next version of Peerunity. Feel free to put in a pull request :slight_smile:

That’s whale coin holders of other coins that bring that up.

Once checkpointing is removed by default…

Those same whale coin holders of other coins will complain about something else. You will never win with those people.

I suspect this mostly stems from trollbox chat wars. Or bitcointalk flaming wars. We’ll see what happens when checkpointing is removed what the next easy go-to complaint will be…
