Just to let the Dev's and community know, I have access to unlimited Azure hosting, including domains. So if any Dev work is needed to be done regarding cloud-based applications including VPS, DNS, VPN, blockchain scalability, web app deployment, domain and website hosting please let me know.

 

Also with regards to general Crypto development, I am here to help in any way that I can, as I have developed a few currencies and open source software in the past and am looking to be part of an enthusiastic team rather than solo all the time.

Community,

 

We are pleased to announce that the official revival of the Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) Altcoin has begun.  As such, we have three important announcements to share.


Announcement 1

As part of the revival, we have set up a Bitcoin-sCrypt Discord channel for the BTCS community to communicate. 

Join the live Bitcoin-sCrypt discussion here:  https://discord.gg/EAXdR8j 


Announcement 2

As part of the revival, Spidersbox will take over lead development for Bitcoin-sCrypt and Smokeasy will step back to take a secondary supporting role.

Spidersbox is a talented and experienced cryptocoin developer who has agreed to take over leadership of the Bitcoin-sCrypt project to restore BTCS back to its previous luster...with assistance from his team from previous cryptocoin projects reviving other coins, which include:
     BitBar
     LiteBar
     BitcoinFast
     LitecoinPlus

 

We warmly welcome Spidersbox and his team to the Bitcoin-sCrypt community!


Announcement 3

As part of the revival, Bitcoin-sCrypt is looking to change the consensus mechanism from pure Proof-of-Work to a hybrid Proof-of-Work/Proof-of-Stake system to ensure mining remains decentralized.

 

The first steps will be adding repairwallet, zapwallettxes and coin control to the current client wallet to set up the framework for implementing Proof-of-Stake.  These changes will not require a hard-fork, while the later change to a hybrid Proof-of-Stake system will. 

 

More info can be found at the official Bitcoin-sCrypt Discord channel: https://discord.gg/EAXdR8j 

 

We are excited about the future of Bitcoin-sCrypt!

 

Thanks,

 

~Smokeasy

We've been working hard to build a new custom miningpool. All pools including BTCS have been moved over to the new pool at http://coincave.nl . Any balance on the old MPOS pool is safe, we'll check all accounts and make sure any balance is paid to their user. Our new pool is still under development but fully functional. We'll be adding more features soon, active node lists, market information, coin info etc.

Announcement re Hybrid Proof-of-Stake/Proof-of-Work Upgrade from theotherbitcoin.com:

 

Quote

Community,

 

The upgrade of the Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) protocol from pure Proof-of-Work (POW) to a Proof-of-Work/Proof-of-Stake hybrid (POW/POS) is now scheduled for release in September of 2018.

 

Spidersbox’s protocol update and upgraded BTCS client has been released internally and is currently being tested on the testnet prior to public release next month.

 

The new Bitcoin-sCrypt client will allow both POW mining and POS staking through the client directly.  Newly generated coins will still require 100 confirmations before they can be spent, regardless if generated via POW or POS.

 

Additional information concerning how POS works, POS specifications and how to stake your BTCS will be published in the coming weeks, along with the client release date and hardfork date.

 

We are truly excited about the new hybrid POS/POW block consensus protocol, which will decentralize mining and block confirmation by allowing Bitcoin-sCrypt hodlers to help secure the network by staking their BTCS coins.

 

 

Bitcoin-sCrypt is traded as BTCS and is available at the Cryptopia, C-CEX and TradeSatoshi exchanges.

 

Thanks for your continued support,

Bitcoin-sCrypt Dev Team

Bitcoin-sCrypt is the decentralized alternative to Bitcoin-sha256 bringing Bitcoin mining back to the community with an ASIC-resistant crypto-currency.
