[ANN] Bitcoin Rebooted

Recommended Posts

The time has come to publicly announce Bitcoin Rebooted "BItcoin for the rest of us".

 

Coin Details

Ticker: BOOT
Algorithm: SHA256
Block Reward: 50 BOOT
Block Time: 150 Seconds
Block Maturity: 100 Blocks
PoW Reward: 50 BOOT
Difficulty Retargeting: New Fuzzy Effect Wave DAA
Premine: 200K BOOT (about a weeks worth)
Total Supply: 268,234,500 BOOT (50 years of mining)
Website: https//www.bitcoin-rebooted.xyz
Hashtag: #GettheBOOT[/center]

 

This is a "soft launch".  We have been internally developing and testing since July of 2018.  The coins tests out.  The DAA has been extensively tested (over a 1000 hours).  We have had the website publicly available for weeks now.  An explorer went online last week.  We have an experimental yiimp pool that appears to be up and running, but no promises there - pool operation is not our forte, others are coming online to do that job right.

 

So what is Bitcoin Rebooted?  Well, you can read an overview (or everything you would ever want to know about it in the coin details tab) at:  https://www.bitcoin-rebooted.xyz

 

For a bit more detail:

 

This is NOT a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain, this is a fork of the BItcoin sourcecode and utilizes the SHA256 hash algorithm so can be ASIC mined

 

The blockchain has been restarted with a new genesis key, magic numbers, etc.  

 

Block reward is 50 coins per block, which decreases by 1 coin per year per block.  So 50 years of mining, and no major penalty if your late to the game (at least for the next dozen or two years)

 

Block time target is 2.5 minutes, just like Litecoin.  Minimum blocktime is 2 seconds, 20 seconds if the block is empty (to discourage mining of such)

 

Block maximum size is 16mb

 

The DAA is all new code, dubbed "Fuzzy Effect Wave" and has a few special features, like "cliff" detection to prevent super long blocks that impact many alt-coins when profit-switching pools leave

 

Segwit support has been removed from the original source tree - we don't believe in it and feel it punishes miners via reduced transaction fees 

 

There has been no ICO, there will be no airdrops, there have been no special partners that benefited early

 

The blockchain has been mined by the developers for the past week (at block 3942 as we type) in order to establish some checkpoint records to help reduce the chance of early forking

 

What do we consider a "soft launch"?  Announcement here first and foremost with the goal of attracting an audience of supporters who can help us grow the coin.  Once a broader infrastructure is in place (bigger network, more pools, hopefully an exchange or two) we will publicize the coin more via other outlets.   Of course, the source code is available and a Windows wallet installation program is available - just hop over to the coin website for those.

An early access pool is now available at http://pool.bitcoin-rebooted.xyz

 

This is brought to you by the CCGLLC team until real pool operators come on board (we are expecting at least one later this week).  

 

-o stratum+tcp://pool.bitcoin-rebooted.xyz:<PORT> -u <WALLET_ADDRESS>

 

<WALLET_ADDRESS> should be one of your Bitcoin Rebooted address, NOT a BTC address.

Port 3332 is for CPU and old ASIC mining with a default difficulty of 16 (GH and below).

Port 3333 is for modern ASIC mining with a default difficulty of 12K (TH S9s and the like).

Port 3334 is for NiceHash mining with a default difficulty of 1Mi (PH Nicehash and relatives).

We changed the symbol today from BTR to BOOT.

 

BTR was used by the (little known?) BitEther coin.  

 

This change should prevent any future Exchange symbol conflicts.  

 

On the lighter side, its also good for slogans.  I can see somebody printing t-shirts "Get the BOOT" and stickers "BOOT out Bitcoin!"  Oh well.

 

ps.  This corresponds to us release version 0.2.4.0 of the code (on the source repository and Windows installer)

Good to change that now before things get too far along.

 

You can setup a t-shirt store online and print on demand.  No out of pocket costs, just upload your design and click a couple of buttons.

Pool is up with 3 stratums, one just for old stuff if you 

1 hour ago, DeathsHead said:

Yarrr...

 

Pool is up with (3) stratrums, one just for old junk like the Antminer U1s we used for some of the testing.  Heard some say they were doing some GPU work against port 3332 (the one for GH and less equipment).  Don't know how long that will be worthwhile, but it is at the moment.  Personally have (4) threads on one my servers solo CPU mining and its finding a block every so often.  Might want to get in before the system gets more attention and the S9s show up.

I have been so long out of the picture (years), that I have to relearn what is going on.
Easy enough.... I will continue to look through here.

Also need to buy new equipment as I have nothing to mine with at the moment.

 

Cheers... and Yarrrrr!

Just released version 0.2.4.1.  It is just a maintenance release with two features:  Another checkpoint record was added, and a patch to the source that allows for building with older versions of Libevent.

 

In other news, the coin was announced on the other forum last night.  As of this writing we have about 2.5 PH of miners working on it.  Besides our modest pool efforts, there is at least one other public pool up and running as well.

 

Its maybe a minor milestone, but the number of coins in circulation are now more than double what was pre-mined prior to announcing here.

Progress, but a lot of work yet to do.  Next on my list is to comb through the 100 top Exchanges on Coinmarketcap and see what it takes to get listed.  Of course, many are BTC only, or Token only, but its a start.  I'm told I have to be on at least 2 of their exchanges for 60 days before they will list Bitcoin Rebooted.

Good luck with the exchanges.  Things sure have changed with exchanges over the years.  In my research most exchanges with any volume want $$$ for a listing.

 

I remember looking at cryptopia maybe a year ago and it was like 40K after purchasing the DOT needed to list a coin.  (you have to by the coin DOT and then pay the exchange in DOT).  Maybe prices have changed with Bitcoin in a bear market IDK.

 

Might want to also try coinpayments.net they are a solid business.

If you can get on coinpayments I can accept your currency here once the new version of this site comes out.

 

Actually, it's going to be multiple sites...

I'll check them out.  Thanks.  BTW - Loved the "Everyone needs a hobby" quote...

 

And your right.  Most want 0.3BTC at a minimum.  Some want as much as 30BTC... just to be listed.
