Please help test version v0.10.15!

This release includes:

- Spork: True masternode payment enforcement and increasing masternode rewards
- Masternode Hardening, I've fixed over 10 vulnerabilities in Darksend that could have possibly caused DOS attacks
- Changed the way Masternode pinging works, using a timestamp calculated from the average block timestamp instead of the local time. This should fix some cases where nodes went offline after awhile.
- Added a simple list that will provide who gets paid on what blocks.
- Turned back on collateral transactions
- Added collateral to the queuing process (dsa and dsq protocol commands)
- Improved collateral strategy: Collateral is now paid in the form of mining fees. This creates a situation where to double spend the inputs, you would need to pay the miners higher fees then 0.1DRK (the collateral fee). This makes it impossible to double spend attack our collateral system.
- New command "masternode winners", shows the next 20 payees
- New Darksend branding

What we need to test:

- If anyone gets hit with a collateral charge, please send your debug.log and wallet.dat to [email protected]
- "masternode winners" must always be in sync across the whole network. We'll need to figure out a way to test this
- Make sure the reward adjustment is working
- Make sure darksend is working properly
- Update pools and make sure the spork goes smoothly
- Come up with a name for the release?

Let's follow the linux ubuntu tradition of naming them after animals... Affable Alligator.

We can name the releases as "Nail 1"..."Nail 2"...and so on (or N1.. N2 for short) because every new release is a nail in the fiat currency's (and bitcoin's) coffin :rolleyes:

Someone on Darkcoin ann suggested: Darkcoin Gold.

I'm running that in my head right now, it could be interesting to name different client versions after rare and precious metals…. Darkcoin Gold, Darkcoin Silver, Darkcoin Bronze.

They could have different pre-paid features (when-if access to DarkServices become a reality) Kind of like banks and credit cards do?

This has been discussed before, but there could be a basic client and clients with full feature availability (maybe prepaid access for 1 year with some clients, others that offer only basic wallet services and are free Like the bronze version, etc)

Then we create a product stream. We wouldn't need a million different metals, maybe three…? Maybe some version could target businesses and others could be for personal finances.

We should maintain the emphasis on the word Darkcoin before the client name to create a brand recognition and eventual moat.

This way, every year there could be a new version of Darkcoin Gold, Darkcoin Silver, bronze, etc.
It could include instructions, news concerning new features… and a picture of a different cute animal every year? (maybe a little part of the proceeds could go to helping out that year's animal's habitat?)

Then, similar to anti-virus software or tax software it could be available in stores for people that are more comfortable with that and also online.

This creates a basis for a physical marketing strategy, because even though most people don't buy in stores like best buy (they buy online for the most part), they do go there to pre shop items and this could be a trend that we use to our advantage, using it for essentially free advertisement that pay's for itself and it would be good for the media to have a box to open at least in the beginning. ;) Even bitcoin doesn't have that… Just a thought.

Different shades of black:

Example: Onyx, Midnight, Ebony, Slate, etc
Lets remember that this is a financial product. It should probably be named in relation to things people associate with value (other than artistic…) The name should also reflect a marketing strategy and support it.

I mean... Darkcoin Onyx, Ebony sounds cool but does it support a clearly understood and definable marketing strategy? Does it sound like a financial product you would find in a bank? If you want to take business away from the current financial sector you need to at least sound financial, at least it definitely won't hurt.

I hope not. "Financial products" are what got every economy in the West where they are right now...

Really I don't think the name matters that much. Might as well make it something fun, and a little bit subversive, it's a grand *nix tradition.

Hi thelonecrouton,

Lets work on this. If you don't perceive Darkcoin as a financial product, what do you perceive it as and what do you perceive its purpose to be?

I would also like to propose the idea that names are everything, names are sound and sound is vibration. You can code the multi-sig address right? I could never do this today. But I can run a business and I excel at strategy. And that is one of the reasons everyone is so important and why everyone is here. Think about all the time you put into Darkcoin, how can any part of it not be important? :) Think string theory and quantum theory.

The binary sends me to a 404 page. I think the grammar is wrong too for the link: "Oops! The page you are looking for is so anonymous that not even us could find it. Just like a Darksend transaction." It should be not even 'we' could find it, ya? Excited for testing time soon! =D

****** PLEASE UPDATE TO v10.15.1 *******

I'm the only masternode on testnet, can people start some more please?

- Darksend tested with 2.5 DRK successfully and I've set that as the minimum amount that's compatible
- Fixed a locking bug on inputs
- Fixed a collateral calculation bug

I'll be turning on enforcement soon to test this new strategy

Is flare going to compile the windows version for us?

Just waiting for 6 confirms...

edit: odd, can't start masternode with hot wallet, just keeps telling me I need 6 confirms, which I have. 19999 open, privkey generated etc. Will wipe and try again. Was getting some console blockheight spam every block change, that may be intended though.

I'll set up some masternodes in the morning (GMT+1). Sorry I can't help tonight.

flare Are any of the instances in my AWS available to be used as masternodes? If so, I'm happy to configure if you let me know which ones are free.
