    also, around the new year - we should have a new web site design! Next year is looking good for Bitcoin Fast! With a newly designed website, pow and pos repaired and working properly - I think it will be time to add some new exchanges and rock this puppy 8)

    fyi - there will be a new mandatory wallet update coming out soon. it will fix the pos (staking). Seems the original dev didn't separate out the pow from the pos difficulties. so when a pos block was found, it's difficulty was compared to the last block and adjusted - so if the last block was a pow - the difficulty would be adjusted up to closer match. this means the pos difficulty, which is usually less than 1 - has been jacked up, and following the pow difficulty. - not right! This explains why the staking of BitcoinFast has always been screwy. Besides correcting the pos portion of the wallet, I'll be lowering the txfees also. The plan is to have the new wallet out in a few days (or several days) giving enough time for cryptopia and the pools to be on the new wallet by the fork date of the new year (GMT) Being that there are still some wallets out there that haven't updated since the last fork (that fixed the issue with pow), I will include a way to block the older wallets. after this upcoming fork, the older wallets won't be able to connect to the network. - hopefully the owners of said wallets will start looking around for answers to them not being able to connect. we will be here to help them :D

    remember to check your wallet and make sure you are using BitcoinFast v2.1.0.1 there are still some people out there that haven't upgraded yet

    Difficulty is adjusting much better now. the blockchain is moving along quite nicely. staking is still backed up, but people have been reporting that they staked. It may take a week or two (maybe longer) for pos to smooth out. we have a Discord at https://discord.gg/nqEv9RT open to anyone that wants to join.

    so far so good. in the test environment: I used the real blockchain to test with. I setup 3 computers and ran the wallets so they would download and sync the real chain, once they were in sync, I disconnected them form the internet - setup a pool and gpu mining rig and went to town. it took a long time to hit a block, but the switch happened just as planned. the difficulty dropped, and soon my 4 card gpu rig started hitting blocks. I mined for about 20,000 blocks, then turned the miners off transfered 1,000 bcf to one of the pc's and waited. It took a little while, but pos kicked in and the chain started moving again - just on pos. Currently, my server is under a ddos attack, but once it gives up, I will reset the switch time in the bcf wallet code, update the github repo, and release a windows wallet so we can get this fork going.
  10. there is a nice write up of Bitbar at http://coinbrakers.weebly.com/bitbar.html Let's think of some more ways of getting exposure :) I'm currently working on adding PoS to litebar to help with keeping the chain moving. The profit switching pools are playing havoc with the difficulty.

    I've added Kimoto Gravity Well for difficulty adjustments. It should work much better (just about anything will work better than it is now) I still have to test if for several days to make sure the switch works correctly, and the affects are positive.
  12. just a reminder: after block 417,000 pow reward will drop to 1.75 LCP

    I agree, the difficulty should be going down each time a block is found - over the 60 second block time. that's the way it is suppose to work. That is why I am suspicious of the difficulty adjustments. I've been watching the pos difficulty - and it hasn't come back down either. The wallet is suppose to adjust both up and down to try and keep the block times as close to 60 seconds as possible. I'm thinking the down part isn't working correctly. More work for me to do ...
