    Maybe its a sign of things to come. If they will add alts that low, seems probable they will add more.
    Coinbase is making cryptos more mainstream with the name Blockr, Tumblr for cryptos.
    Blockr could become well-known for listing all blockchains.

    I have brought a node online with another backup copy of the official block explorer. At this point I'm still trying to work out the kinks with fastcgi to display it over port 80. Here is the link till I get that sorted out:

    http://explorer.masternode.io:8888/chain/Darkcoin

    Once I get the fastcgi stuff worked out (any pointers would be helpful) it will drop the :8888 and just be:

    http://explorer.masternode.io/chain/Darkcoin

    I have also finished a dnsseed for mainnet as well but I'm not sure where to post about it:

    dig dnsseed.masternode.io @8.8.8.8

    Nice! Did you update the seeders to the latest RC5 changes on github? commit ae0ce59

    Nope I will go a head and update that. Also I'm attempting to experiment with an ipv6 dnsseed. Do you have any idea if the dnsseed will support an ipv6 seed?

    I don't know if the original dnsseeder was programmed with ipv6 support, but your experiment will show that :)

    Ok those are updated. I'm not really sure how to query the dnsseed in ipv6 have you ever messed with it?

    Theoretically

    Code:
    dig dnsseed.masternode.io AAAA @ladar.masternode.io
    should do the trick IF the dnsseeder is capable of delivering AAAA records.

    I do see some references under the darkcoin-dnsseed inside dns.h that seems to say it supports querying of AAAA records. Perhaps there just isn't any yet for it to pickup?

    [email protected]:~/> dig dnsseed.masternode.io AAAA @ladar.masternode.io

    Not sure what else perhaps I need some client's up with wallets using ipv6?

    Sure :) Dnsseeder is just crawling the Darkcoin network and building a DB, which can be queried via DNS.

    So as long there is no ipv6 peer available and crawlable, dnsseeder will not have one in its DB. Check dnsseed.dump and dnsseed.dat for nodes available.

    You are right, dnsseeder supports ipv6 --> https://github.com/nightlydarkcoin/darkcoin-seeder/commit/309d8ee0ae77e617e8cd6cf2c30b0378b66498d3

    Let me know if it works out for you.

    BTW: Propulsion would like to run a ipv6 masternode/peer - maybe you both can try it in a joint effort ;)
