BUTTERFLYCOIN BFC
 
Butterflycoin is based off of the SHA-256 hashing algorithm and adds support of POS block minting to help protecting against 51% attacks. Butterflycoin is based off the Bitcoin open sourced code, and like Bitcoin, is still in the beta phase. Plans are to follow the latest Bitcoin patches and releases as new updates are pushed. The Butterflycoin project is set to move along with them.
 
There are two big advantages of Butterflycoin. The first being, it uses the SHA-256-based hashing algorithm. This offers a different solution than most scrypt-based alt-coins, because scrypt-based coins can’t be mined with the latest ASIC mining technology. Butterflycoin fixes this by giving miners the ability to participate in mining the coins, no matter what type of hardware they use. From CPUs to ASIC miners, Butterflycoin can be minted with whatever hardware you choose.
The second advantage is, Butterflycoin implements Proof-Of-Stake (POS) block minting. This not only helps protect the network against against 51% attacks, but it also allows miners to mint coins by just holding them in their wallets for period of time. PPC is a great example of a SHA-256-based coin that implements POS, and has warded off 51% attacks because of it.
 
Butterflycoin is decentralize so than there is no singe point of attack. It has super fast 30 sec confirmations and network rewards 30 Butterflycoins for each new block solved. Difficultly re-targets every 2 blocks, and is set to adjust so that 1 block is solved every 30 second (so an average of 60 Butterflycoins are mined each minute). Frequent block re-targets help ensure transactions don’t get stuck on a high difficulty and cause the network to grind to a halt. Butterflycoin has a total supply limit of 7,000,000,000 (7 Billion) coins. This equals one coin for each human alive at the time of its creation. The idea is that there will always be enough coins to go around, but still an upper hard limit of 7 Billion.

Okay, Github link has been added.

 

As for more addnodes, I don't have anymore atm. Are you having any issues with the current addnode?

 

No, things are working fine here.  No problem connecting.  Just figured I would add any additional addnodes if there were any.

Butterflycoin is having fun with the new cgminer 3.4.1.  I hit one block in the last hour... my accepts read:  2903.  I wonder if there is a bug in the new version of cgminer.  I will have to check it out on another coin.

Yup looks like it's cgminer and not BFC.  I tried another coin and got the same results.

Right now, I'm pool mining with BFGMiner and it's working fine with me. I'm not so sure of the pool I’m mining with though, because they keep miscalculating my balances (which is why I’m hesitant to make a tut on it). I’m going to see if I can get BFGMiner to solo mine, and if that works, then I’ll be making a tut on that.

This coin will produce more than 7 Billion coins. It will produce an infinite amount.
 
You have to change this:
 
// miner's coin base reward based on nBitsint64 GetProofOfWorkReward(int nHeight, int64 nFees, uint256 prevHash){int64 nSubsidy = 30 * COIN; return nSubsidy + nFees;}

I believe this coin's template is based off of Shakezula's Blehcoin.  https://github.com/geocoin/blehcoin

 

I also checked the new CryptoBuck code and it's pretty much the same thing:

// miner's coin base reward based on nBitsint64 GetProofOfWorkReward(int nHeight, int64 nFees, uint256 prevHash){    int64 nSubsidy = 11 * COIN;	if(nHeight < 300)      {        nSubsidy = 1 * COIN;    }	else if(nHeight < 35000)      {        nSubsidy = 33 * COIN;    }    else if(nHeight < 70000)       {        nSubsidy = 22 * COIN;    }    return nSubsidy + nFees;}

So are both of these coins going to produce an infinite amount?  I've never created a coin, just curious.

Yes.

 

Any coin that doesn't eventually reduce the subsidy to 0 will generate an infinite amount of coin.

 

As is, Butterflycoin will produce about 30 million coins per year, every year.

 

So it will take 233 years to reach 7 Billion. Lots of time to fix the bug :)

 

Or keep it as an experiment in an inflationary coin.

 

The Inflation will be: 100% year 1-2, 33% year 3, 25%, year 4, 20% year 5, .... 5% year 20, ...

Okay found the cut off. Take a look at main.h 

 

static const int64 MAX_MONEY = 7000000000 * COIN;//7 billion

 

As for BFC PoS it is, 30/90 days at 1%:

 

 

unsigned int nStakeMinAge = 60 * 60 * 24 * 30; // minimum age for coin age

unsigned int nStakeMaxAge = 60 * 60 * 24 * 90; // stake age of full weight

 

 

static const int64 MAX_MINT_PROOF_OF_STAKE = 0.01 * MAX_MINT_PROOF_OF_WORK; //1% annual interest

 

 

Sorry for the confusion of the previous reply, like I said, I'm new to this and this is my first digital coin, lol.

 

I have removed my previous post so not to confuse others :)
