Not much time to write here recently, as we’ve been busy with the coin development — pools mainly, but also server optimizations, and… promotions. Yes, you’ve read that right — we have a contest open for promoting the Xedoscoin in China.
If you want to see XDC on China exchange (and when we’re there, we’re basically everywhere shortly afterwards), you can donate XDC to the address that we’re using for funding this bounty — WuTBak33RrnV4Td8Mobz6MkAqDbqtLvUCd.
You can check the balance of the fund anytime you like. Also take a look at our thread at bitcointalk about this.
The one that takes us to the first China exchange wins the hunt and takes all the money collected at this address.
We also have more pools — one official (pool.xedoscoin.com), optimized for smaller CPU miners and one located in Singapore, so maybe a bit faster for users from Asia and Australia (xdc.plasr.com).
After reaching values above 70 in the midweek, the XDC difficulty stabilized around 30. And now today, on Saturday, it dropped to 4. Obviously most of the mining machines are office based ones. We are still a small community and the stopping of even one or two bigger miners affects the difficulty.
So, weekend miners, it is your turn now — mine while the diff is low this weekend. No one can guarantee that the same will happen next weekend or the one after that. Of course, there is no guarantee the difficulty will rise again during the work days… but I’m pretty much inclined to bet on it rising. 🙂
In the other news — we are preparing our first pool. Some testing and fixing is still needed, but until we launch, feel free to use the pool(s) linked in the sidebar.
We are also preparing to approach some of the exchanges with a request to add Xedoscoin as a currency available for trading. If you have have something to say on that matter — you prefer an exchange, have an objection, have an advice or anything regarding the presence of XDC on cryptocoin exchanges — please raise your hand and speak now! 🙂
Have a nice weekend, folks! And happy mining!
Xedoscoin is gaining popularity on the Internet. Here goes a quick reference to the most recent net activity regarding XDC. We’re focusing on cryptocointalk.com. They have a subforum dedicated to Xedoscoin.
First Xedoscoin Pool has arrived!! — announcement of the xed.argakiig.us XDC mining pool
Xedoscoin (XDC) GIVEAWAY — the first giveaway that we know of. 20 XDC free from tucksmcgucks for a promotional forum signature link.
Xedoscoin XDC Information — that was on launch date and was probably an auto post, contains some old info, but still.
And no, it wasn’t us. We spend our free time to work on the coin and the services that run (and will run) on this site.
It wasn’t us. It was you! Thank you and happy mining!
We announced Xedoscoin on Bitcointalk some ten days ago and already the coin is rising. A bit slowly, but the attention from the community is building up. We don’t have a lot of time to devote to PR, SEO, graphic design and general promotion activities, but we’re doing our best.
You can find details about the Xedoscoin on our What is Xedoscoin page.
So far there is a blockchain explorer by us, some logo proposals (the design contest goes on, so fire up you PS or Gimp and set your imagination free) and a XDC pool by argakiig. We are preparing our pool too, so stay tuned. You could still mine XDC solo, as the difficulty is still around 10 now and sometimes in the past week it was below 2 (although it will slowly go only up, not down from now on, especially since we have pools).
We’ll have a lot to write in the coming weeks, so let’s say this is enough for a “hello world” kind of post.
