    BITCOIN SCRYPT - BTCS
     
    Bitcoin sCrypt is the decentralized alternative to Bitcoin-core and is the first cryptographic currency to utilize CryptoVoter's decentralized blockchain voting to decide development issues and shift power away from developers and mining pools to coinholders themselves.

    No problem mate, I will get my client booted up and send them too you.

     

    The cloud server is running so well and is more than powerful enough to run a service aswell for Bitcoin Scrypt so watch this space for a service website.

     

    I am also working on the client for the next update so the blockchain can be downloaded from scratch by itself, this will make service providers more inclined to take it on.

    Thanks.

    Yea, that's the current block.  It's stuck at difficulty 10.6 so it will probably be awhile before a new block is found.  Wow, 214 MH/s on that coin.  That's gotta be in the top 10 for HR (non BTC, LTC coins).

    It looks like you've got 5 MH/s on your pool.  I guess people are solo mining the coin.  The coin is all over the place with difficulty.  One minute it's .3 the next it's 10.

    Hi all,

     

    Nobody panic about seednodes, as was mentioned a while back the two low powered VPS seednodes are now gone and replaced my a new and powerful dedicated Cloud Server. Please put this is your conf file and delete the other two : addnode=31.193.130.77

     

    This dedicated server is going to double up as a service provider for Bitcoin Scrypt aswell as Extremecoin. I developed and run EXC and I now run Bitcoin Scrypt.

     

    The blockchain download issue for Bitcoin Scrypt is still being worked on but is being more troublesome than I thought it would be, so if anyone in the community can help, that would be great, this is what open source is all about and why I love it.

     

    Thanks

    I fixed the block explorer.. if anyone notices it down message me and i can fix it. The bitcoin scrypt bitcoind seems to flake out with a boost error every now and then and I need to restart it.  I've searched about why, but cant seem to find an answer.

    Last time I spoke with Capt he was working on some fixes for BTC2.  Hopefully he's going to release and update soon.

    More addnodes anyone?

     

    I thought I read that CaptChadd set up a full time node for this on his new cloud server.  I remember him saying that he was going to use it for EXC and BTC2.
