Update: March 24. 2016: By Ghostlander: "I can fork Ethereum, add NeoScrypt there, tune it up and start right with the Homestead. This way we get a very powerful smart contracts engine at the very least. All coins of the current chain will be exchanged 1:1 on the new chain. To keep Halcyon fair, there will be no pre-mine other than what's needed for the coin exchange." Halcyon v1.1.0.2 (24-Dec-2014) no pre-mine and no ICO PoW mining never ends ~3.0M HAL in circulation currently Windows GUI client: http://download.orbitcoin.org/downloads/halcyon-win-1.1.0.2.zip MacOS X GUI client: http://download.orbitcoin.org/downloads/halcyon-mac-1.1.0.2.dmg Source code: https://github.com/ghostlander/Halcyon Twitter: https://twitter.com/halcoin Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Halcoin Web Site: http://halcyon.top/ Block Explorer: http://explorer.halcyon.top:2080/ Mining Pools DNB (1% fee, PPLNS): http://hal.dnb.io/ Exchanges Cryptsy (HAL/BTC) [defunct]: https://www.cryptsy.com/markets/view/HAL_BTC Specifications advanced hybrid proof-of-work (PoW) and proof-of-stake (PoS) fixed rate of 20% PoW blocks and 80% PoS blocks block hashing is BLAKE2s PoW hashing is NeoScrypt PoS hashing is SHA-256d 2 minutes combined block target (2.5 minutes for PoS, 10 minutes for PoW) retargets every block using Orbitcoin Super Shield (OSS) time warp and instamining protection advanced checkpointing against 51% attacks PoW block reward is fixed at 5 HAL PoS block reward is up to 100% per year (5 HAL max.) coin age for PoS: 0.5 days min. to 7.5 days max. 10 confirmations for regular transactions 50 confirmations for minted coins very low transaction fees the default P2P port is 21108, RPC port is 21109 I2P/Tor ready Example halcyon.conf irc=1 daemon=1 server=1 staking=1 logtimestamps=1 sse2=1 minersleep=2000 stakecombine=125 stakesplit=250 port=21108 rpcport=21109 rpcuser=someuser rpcpassword=somepassword addnode=seed0.halcyon.top:21108 addnode=seed1.halcyon.top:21108 The original announcement thread: [ANN] Halcyon - x15 POW/POS - 2 Weeks Mining - News UpComing - Ninja - Start Now: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=741728.0 Donate towards the development and infrastructure maintenance: HCZBwpnpQnaNKLK6Whumbqnqy5XxH8EwQk
