Weekly Update #152

[ul][li]There is an interesting article written by Ray on proof-of-work: https://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=4200.0[/li]
[li]Some of our users are still having trouble understanding the way wallet works: https://www.peercointalk.org/index.php?topic=4199.0. I would say this is not the user’s fault, as I always thought the way the ‘change address’ works in bitcoin wallet is very inconvenient, especially with a brain wallet. Bitcoin introduced this mechanism to obfuscate the sending graph on blockchain, so it’s a purely privacy feature. However it’s more natural for users to associate balance toward fixed addresses. That’s also why a feature was added to peercoin that I call ‘avatar mode’, where it disables the privacy feature and returns the change back to the sending address. Though it’s still a development feature with peercoin. The latest peerunity release should support this mode.[/li][/ul]

Have fun!


What is slow? Development? Transactions? And what is inefficient? This comment doesn’t really tell us much. If development is slow then yeah, I agree with that. If transactions are slow then you miss the purpose behind Peercoin.

Please see my post here


Avatar mode seems to be enabled by default which is dangerous behaviour
