June 5th, 2016 Highlights

~~

Decision to become Amazon Affiliate
We will be placing links and/or banners advertisements on the forum to help offset community expenses.


Community legal fund
A legal fund is being established in the event it should become needed. We're going to make Goldcoin the #1 digital currency, come hell or high water.  :)


Discussion about Cryptsy Coins
Today, we had an hour-long discussion about the Cryptsy coins and how to best rectify this situation. We all agreed that it's of paramount importance that these coins be returned to the original owners - and if that's not possible - returned to the community where the matter can be fairly and expeditiously handled. There was a multi-pronged plan developed that would achieve this outcome.


Client Syncing issues
It was discovered that a major seed node was down causing syncing issues for some clients. This problem was resolved during the meeting.


Coinomi and multi-wallet idea
We will be looking into the possibility of adding Goldcoin to a multi-coin wallet.

Coinomi and multi-wallet idea

Concerning this topic, I have a fair amount of knowledge.  Adding GoldCoin to the source code of coinomi will be relatively easy.  GoldCoin follows Bitcoin for the the parts (such as sending transactions) that are used by the App itself.  The hard part will be the Electrum servers that the app uses for all the other work.  This app maintains an HD wallet, and therefore all the addresses and keys.  It creates transactions and then sends those to the Electrum Servers, which handles all the rest of the functionality (syncing blockchain, etc). 

I am not sure if we would need to do our own electrum servers or if the coinomi developers would set those up.  The instructions for setting up a server are here:  https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum-server/blob/master/HOWTO.md.  Of course, we would need to fork Electrum to work for GoldCoin.  It does use the daemon (goldcoind) to function.

We also have the option of forking coinomi ourselves and having it only support GoldCoin (and any other coins we might choose).  We would still need our own Electrum Server for GoldCoin, but could use the coinomi server list for the other coins.

This is the instruction page for adding a new coin to coinomi:
https://coinomi.com/AddingSupportForANewCurrency/

The hardest part appears to be setting up the electrum servers.  The link that tadspoles provided above was for a client.  Getting 2 servers setup would be the first and hardest part in my opinion.

I think this is the server component to the client.   Not sure if it helps.

June 19th, 2016 Highlights

~~

Record week for trygoldcoin.com
This week, trygoldcoin.com experienced record sales topping $800.00. We think this is a good way for early adopters to invest since they can use traditional payment methods to buy Goldcoin.


Goldcoin price passes 1 cent mark
The team talked about the importance of staying above this psychological barrier. When Goldcoin is trading above a penny, it provides users with a tangible relatable item.


Ethereum Exploit
The team talked about the current setback for the ETH developers and how to prevent such an event from occurring with Goldcoin.


Mining Strategies
Discussed today were various mining strategies and how to best allocate reward inflows. Holding some of the currency as investment while selling a portion is a good method of supporting the currency while also offsetting equipment costs.

June 26th, 2016 Highlights

~~

Bittrex Discussion
The team talked about the possibility of a Bittrex listing which would provide a higher volume platform for our friends at Gold Club International. The desired time frame for a listing is one month.


GoldCoin App
We are very excited about the new Goldcoin App and discussed important features which would increase overall security and ease of use.


New Team Member
Introduction of our latest team member, Gilead Okolonkwo, who is responsible for expanding Goldcoin awareness and adoption throughout Africa.

July 03rd, 2016 Highlights

Team Members Present: Four (Cryptosolar, MicroGuy, GoldClub, and Sokolov323)
Length of meeting: 1 hour

~~

Please find a brief recap of today's proceedings below:

Development of Android application
Discussion about current progress of app development and the need for adding a Naira (NGN) exchange rate option. The first phase of the Gold Club adoption will be providing a bonus of 200GLD to registered club members who download the app. It is essential that these users have access to the exchange rate for their local currency.


Suspension of Open Workforce project
The Open Workforce has reached its planned end-life and will be shuttered. Active workers will be transitioned over to our global tip-based system. It was a great learning experience operating this project. The team would like to thank all of those involved for their contributions. 


Goldcoin Plus+ Wallet Project
This week saw the launch of the new online wallet project that will feature an online wallet along with a companion mobile application. Goldcoin Plus+ will work like a basic version of the Blockchain.info wallet. We anticipate development work on this project to begin sometime within the next 2 weeks. Project thread: https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=3628.0

I'd like to thank the team members who were able to attend today's meeting as we guide Goldcoin into the future.

July 10th, 2016 Highlights

Team Members Present: Four (Cryptosolar, MicroGuy, CryptoCanary, and Akumaburn)
Length of meeting: 1.45 hours

~~

Please find a brief recap of today's proceedings below:

Issues Related to Mining and Orphans
Our development team is still investigating the issues affecting Goldcoin mining production. We have yet to reach a consensus on how to best respond to the orphan situation. There are several potential ways of handling the matter, ranging from waiting for market capitalization to rise (which will increase network hashrate), to updating the code for improved handling of low-hashrate difficulty adjustments.

Proposed solutions so far:

1. Wait until marketcap rises which will increase difficulty, lessening the orphan issue.
2. Write code that would make the difficulty adjust faster in low hashrate situations. Basically, below 1GH/s the algo would perform one way, and above 1GH/s it would perform the way it does now.
3. Lease a rig to bring hashrate and difficulty up to the point that the orphan problem improves. Continue leasing the rig until the hashrate can self-sustain at 1GH/s or above.
4. Make improvements to the code that would basically tweak the existing difficulty algo and/or 51% defense code that would not be based on or triggered by some predetermined hashrate level.



GoldClub Progress
A brief overview of Goldclub was presented detailing their plans for increasing adoption and advancing Goldcoin throughout West Africa.


Public Image as it Relates to Miners
There exists the perception that the Goldcoin team does not care about miners. This is not the case. It is the miners that breathe life into the network by processing transactions and advancing the blockchain. We discussed how becoming more sensitive to the needs of miners, while increasing transparency, could help to improve this skewed perception.


Improved Github Software Practices
While Goldcoin is indeed "open source software" there are still areas of improvement to be made regarding Github collaboration, bug checking, and general software publication practices.

Length of meeting: 2.75 hours

Please find a brief recap of today's proceedings below:

Team Meeting on Skype
Today we held our weekly team meeting on Skype rather than Discord. Since the Skype platform seems more familiar to our members, we will experiment with hosting our team meetings on Skype for the remainder of July.


Affinity Group Project
Alfred Jordan (aka OneoftheFreds) presented his vision for advancing Goldcoin adoption by empowering 21 million people who are members of an affinity group in the United States. The team discussed the necessity for developing a business strategy that would pave the way for financing a collaborative project of such size and scope. 


New Android App
The latest Android application being developed by Stouse49 and tested by the community should be available on Google Playstore in early August. This week, the beta version was updated to support the NGN exchange rate as pictured below:

(https://puu.sh/q4L0f/9790363511.jpg)


Gold Club Project
Gilead Okolonkwo (aka Goldclub) presented his vision for bringing Goldcoin education and adoption to West Africa through its affiliation with Gold Club of Nigeria. This week we will be looking into the possibility of having a physical Goldcoin created to be used as a collectible token.


Decentralized Core
Gilead reminded that as we look at raising money for various projects, it's important that Goldcoin remain independent and decentralized at its core. While like Bitcoin various dependent projects will be organized and built around its core, Goldcoin itself must remain autonomous and independent; its money supply fixed and unmovable.

Post by: MicroGuy on August 05, 2016, 05:24:56 pm
The last two team meetings have been very productive. There are many, many moving parts now taking place in the build-out of Goldcoin.

Here are a few highlights:

Organizational Framework
A framework is being constructed that will separate the non-profit core (layer 1), from its business dealings (layer 2), and third party relationships (layer 3). The objective is to minimize conflicts of interest as it applies to core decision making.

The possibility of a constitution based on the principles set-forth in the Satoshi whitepaper is being explored.

DAS Adoption
The DAS organization within the United States, a group representing 21 million people, is in the process of adopting Goldcoin as its official digital currency.

MAC OS
Akumaburn is working on the release of an updated version of the Goldcoin Mac OS desktop software. He is hoping to have the binary ready for distribution within a few days.

Gold Club International
Goldcoin International is doing a series of radio shows and various other public promotions to gain market attention for Goldcoin throughout Nigeria.

New Android Application
Final testing is underway for our new Android application with expanded features such as an NGN exchange rate and pincode protection.

Business Development
Alfred Jordan is working on various business development (layer 2) which has the potential of funding the base operations of the non-profit core (layer 1).


The public is invited to attend these meetings which are held each Sunday at 1:00pm on Skype. If you are interested in attending, please send me a private message for the link.

The last two team meetings have seen near perfect attendance and have been very constructive!  :thumbsup:

Here are the highlights:

Bittrex
After a two and 1/2 year hiatus, Goldcoin has returned to US-based exchange Bittrex. The word on the street is that Bittrex is looking to add USD soon. In addition, we feel that Bittrex is positioned to continue its dominance as a leading cryptocurrency exchange, and we think our users deserve access to the very best services available.

You can trade Goldcoin on Bittrex here: https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-GLD

Block Explorer
The Goldcoin team believes that eliminating single points of failure by maintaining redundant network services is vital to our success. We are happy to announce that an additional block explorer has been secured that offers a variety of new features, including a robust API.

Click here to check out the new explorer: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/gld/

GoldClub Launch
Our friends at Gold Club International are only a few days away from their Mega Launch in Africa. This massive venture will expose thousands of new users to Goldcoin. Each member of the club will be awarded Goldcoin and have access to purchasing more using their native currency, the Naira.

Forum thread: https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=3666.0

Codebase Update (MAC OS)
Akumaburn has determined that the best route for supporting the Mac OS systems will be to upgrade the Goldcoin codebase. This will take some time as it will be a major upgrade to our current client and require a full testnet for development and bug checking. We currently anticipate this update to be released sometime in the fall of 2016.


As always, the public is invited to attend these meetings which are held each Sunday at 1:00pm on Skype. If you're interested in attending, please send me a private message for instructions.

Post by: MicroGuy on September 18, 2016, 05:47:45 pm
Today was the best team meeting we've ever had! You can enjoy the highlights below.  :wave:

Here is a brief summary:

Android App Release
This week we hired a couple of professional techs to torture test the new Android release. There were only a couple of minor bugs discovered and they are being corrected now. The new updated app version will be hitting the Google Playstore sometime during the first of the week. The new app has many new features including a pincode to send option and a paper wallet sweeping function. The team would like to thank Stouse49 for his dedication and commitment to Goldcoin's mobile advancement.

Test results: https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=3609.msg17058#msg17058

Gold Club Launch
The official launch of Gold Club International will occur on September, 29th. The first phase will include Nigera with a broader roll-out to follow across central Africa. One of the main reasons for releasing the new Android app now was to provide the necessary tools for this grassroots initiative. The new app will feature live Goldcoin exchange rates available in NGN, the Nigerian Naira. Thank you Gilead for the excellent job you're doing across the Atlantic.

Healthy Volume
Over the past 48 hours, the currency has experienced increased volume levels. Our network hashrate has also continued to climb and is now at 1 GH/s. We anticipate that both of these metrics will continue to rise along with the price as the DAS community and Gold Club members expand their membership enrollment.

Volume and price tracking: http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/goldcoin/#markets

Bittrex Wallet Fixed
Richie and Akumaburn worked together this week to configure the Bittrex exchange wallet and solve the peer-connection issue. Since this time the Bittrex wallet has not skipped a beat. Thank you Richie and Akumaburn for your work is resolving this problem.

Bittrex wallet status dashboard: https://bittrex.com/status

Retail Sales Booming
The website https://www.trygoldcoin.com is seeing record sales as the DAS continues to invest in its future. Dr G's community is by far the largest segment of our current retail audience and it's been through his efforts that we've seen a steadily rising market capitalization. We're going to make Goldcoin the #1 cryptocurrency on the planet and success will require this type of mass retail adoption.

Team Members Present: Six (Cryptosolar, Amir, Gilead, Dr. G, Alfred, and MicroGuy)
Length of meeting: 1 hour

Please find a brief recap of today's proceedings below:

Facebook Fanpage
Juan Pasos and I are working on a makeover of the Goldcoin Fanpage (https://www.facebook.com/GoldCoinFanpage/). The "Shop Now" button has been linked to Trygoldcoin.com and the header image has been updated. In addition, we have started an advertising campaign that will run for 7 days and blanket the St. Louis, Missouri area.

Fanpage link: https://www.facebook.com/GoldCoinFanpage/

Chinese Project
Alfred is in discussions with a group of Chinese investors looking to build their own specialized blockchain. Part of our new business model is to offer blockchain consulting as a means of funding operations and core development. This is just one of many current Layer 2 projects currently being bid. Essentially, we are building our own community-owned Blockstream.

How To Android Video
This week I created a how-to video for using the new Android application. This 15-minute guide covers the installation and basic operation of the new GoldCoin Android app! This coming week I will be making a guide on how to buy GLD on Bittrex.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ol-xYZJzWcU

TryGoldcoin Website
The Trygoldcoin.com website has been updated with a new widget that makes it easier for users to login. We have also added Australia and UK to our list of supported countries on a test basis. September sales volume has already shattered the previous monthly record.

Website link: https://www.trygoldcoin.com

Gold Club Launch
The launch of Gold Club International is only 4 days away. We expect the launch to be hugely successful as it has been heavily advertised on radio, television, and print throughout the western African region.

[October 30th, 2016 Highlights]

Team Members Present: Five (Amir, Gilead, Dr. G, Alfred, and MicroGuy)
Length of meeting: 90 minutes

Please find a brief recap of Sunday's proceedings below:

GoldCoin Developers Group (Layer 1)
The core group has been formally organized and federally registered under the name "GoldCoin Developers Group". The business is classified as a "community or volunteer group" and is a non-profit organization. This was necessary to allow the opening of bank accounts, obtaining various code signing certificates, SSL's, registration of domains, etc., etc.

Client Code Rebase
Our development team is rebasing the current client and incorporating all of the latest litecoin/bitcoin features. There will also be some fine tuning done to the Golden River difficulty algorithm. This rebase will increase client performance and allow us to fully support the latest versions of MAC OS.

Code Signing Certificate
With the popularity of GoldCoin on the rise, we are seeing an increase in the number of reports of antivirus software being triggered by the Windows client. A Thawte code signing certificate has been purchased and is being verified. This CSC should help reduce the number of false positives being seen in these antivirus applications.

https://www.thesslstore.com/promoads/cheap-code-signing.aspx

Goldcoin Partners (Layer 2)
The for-profit company "GoldCoin Partners" has been established that will be used to protect and fund the core group. The company will provide blockchain consulting, software development, investment services, and market research. The proceeds from this business will be used to fund core operations, research, and development.

This is a thread bump for community members possibly unaware of our team meetings every Sunday on Skype at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.

These are casual meetings open to the public. Various team members from Core drop in each week along with members of the Goldcoin community. These sessions are conducted in a Skype group and broadcast live to my channel on YouTube.

Even though it's been a while since this thread was bumped, these meetings have continued uninterrupted. Generally, I open the meeting with a recap of the week's activities and then open the floor for discussion.

If you would like to join, simply install Skype and visit this link: https://join.skype.com/AkhK95OgVyk8

We ask that participants mute their microphones unless speaking to minimize background noise. Microphone required to talk. Webcam is optional.

Hope to see you there Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Eastern!  :)

Starting this month, only the last team meeting of the month will be live streamed to YouTube.

The broadcasted meeting will be a recap show of the prior month which should make it more entertaining to watch. In addition, this change will allow those that might be somewhat shy to comfortably attend the regular non-broadcast meetings.

Does this mean only 1 meeting per month will be view-able OR only 1 meeting per month will be live streamed and the other 3 will be still be view-able in some form?

I still miss the days of MicroGuy eating BBQCoin!  Hey, I love all you guys. Awesome people here. 

GoldCoin is going to really rock this year.  We're going to 2 dollars guys and a ton of volume. 


And where is BBQCoin or InfiniteCoin for that matter.  Microguy ate them and through his glorious action, GoldCoin gained strength.

Previously, we had been live streaming every meeting and archiving the recordings to YouTube. Beginning this month, only the last meeting of the month will be broadcast and recorded. This live broadcast meeting will focus on recapping the highlights from the previous month.

Sunday Meeting April 09th Highlights

1.  Zendesk live chat added to trygoldcoin.com. This improves customer experience by providing live support in real time.

2.  Cometchat added to gldtalk.org replacing iflychat.

3.  Altcoins from the cryptsy sale continue to fly off the shelf. I updated the master list Exhibit B today to accurately reflect the remaining currencies.

4.  Getting requests for SPV wallets to improve customer experience using Goldcoin in desktop. If someone would like to contribute to this project, we can get a thread started on gldtalk.org.

5.  Something we've been missing and discussed before is a marketing presence. This problem was addressed this week with the addition of Steve Conley to the Goldcoin team. http://www.gldcoin.com/about/

Quote
Steve Conley serves as National Marketing Director. He has decades of experience in sales, marketing, and entrepreneurship. His experiences include owning and operating an Internet Hosting company,  serving as an agent in international boxing productions, and  international events production that includes the largest AIDS awareness concert  ever produced (Nairobi, Kenya - over 500,000 attendees).   He  owns We Care Worldwide, an entity that helps raise funds for numerous causes, and an internet-based  travel agency.


6.  Goldcoin added to the accepted currencies at coinpayments.net. Goldcoin integration underway on drgerald.net.

7.  Volume on c-cex and bittrex are down. We need to keep close eye on these levels to ensure we remain complaint with listing requirements. C-CEX is .2 BTC daily volume and Bittrex is .5 BTC daily volume.

8.  Looking into making a fork of the bitcoin insight API which will enable us to use the cryptowoo cryptocurrency plugin for woocommerce. Please see gldtalk.org forum thread for more information or if you would like to contribute to the project.

9.  The team is working with new community member dashed-slug to develop a Woocommerce solution that will utilize the coinpayments.net API.

Sunday Meeting April 23rd Highlights:

1. Alex will be releasing his plugin this week with full support for Goldcoin via the Coinpayments.net API. This will provide yet another solution for merchants that want to accept Goldcoin as payment for products and services. More info: https://www.dashed-slug.net/

2. The PokerTube.com launch is scheduled for Wednesday of this week. The team will remain on standby in the event their website staff requires technical assistance.

3. The Cryptsy Community Relief Project (https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=3789.0) which provides mutual benefit to all parties is proceeding smoothly. During the process we have established many new relationships as we extend goodwill to the broader altcoin communities. All of the wallet recipients (many of whom are developers) are now members of gldtalk.org and subscribers to our newsletter. This means as our development needs grow we will have a larger pool of resources from which to draw talent.

4. We are currently working with the Gold Club to ensure club members have the ability to withdraw their Goldcoin held in account if so desired.

5. The team is seeking a project manager for the DrGerald.net Goldcoin integration. CryptoWoo has quoted a price of $3000 to adapt their Woocommerce plugin and make it compatible with Goldcoin, but we hope to get this price down by doing some of the work in-house.

6. There will be a major Goldcoin event (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10212523044690566&set=a.1739066115914.99452.1216498139&type=3&theater) held in St Louis, Missouri Saturday April 29th at 10:00 am. The event will be held at the Better Family Live cultural center. The event will focus on financial Independence, cryptocurrency basics, how to safely use, and where to obtain Goldcoin.

https://poloniex.com/coinRequest

5. Our brand combined with the underlying technology gives us the unique opportunity to build the greatest form of money that has ever existed. We continue to work steadfast towards this goal which as always remains the project's ultimate objective.

6. Added SSL and Cloudflare treatment to official website gldcoin.com. This caused a brief outage to our Android wallet due to an improper DNS setting. The issue was resolved approximately 1 hour into the outage.

7. Annual Christmas bonuses for team members was announced. Each summer we will conduct a development fundraiser and issue bonuses based on amount generated.

Sunday Meeting May 21st Highlights

Another exciting and busy week!  8)

1.)  Development of "Goldcoin Payments for Woocommerce" is now complete and has been integrated into DrGerald.net. A premium version will be released next week that provides faster checkout via a hosted daemon service.

2.)  Bitcoin price has exceeded $2000 for the first time in history while simultaneously giving up market dominance thanks to increasing capital inflows into the broader altcoin markets. Bitcoin now accounts for just 45% of the total cryptocurrency market.

3.)  Contacted race management service about costs to produce 1st annual "Run for the Gold" 5K road race. Runners will receive Goldcoin t-shirts for entering and can win GLD by placing in a top position for their age category. Gold canopy covered tables will be setup to explain goldcoin to runners. Initial cost is $1,500 which can be recovered via entry fees.

4.)  This week, the Goldcoin node count exceeded 300 for the first time ever. Android app now accounts for approximately 70% of customer wallets.

5.)  Our previous card provider decided to stop supporting the processing of transactions because they were cryptocurrency related. We anticipate having a replacement solution for accepting credit cards in place sometime this week.

Sunday Meeting May 28 Highlights

Goldcoin Payments Week!  :thumbsup:

1.)  Most of this week has been dedicated to finishing the production version of the Goldcoin Payments plugin for Woocommerce. There is now a free version and a premium version that features near instant checkout times.

(http://puu.sh/w3YUY/7278c6c99d.jpg)

The free version uses the CryptoID block explorer API to watch for payments to the Woocommerce order's unique GLD address. The premium version uses a newly developed API to check the Goldcoin daemon for address payments. The cost of the premium version is yet to be determined.

2.)  There is a new Goldcoin p2p mining pool (see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=852083.0)

3.)  Dr G is making push in St. Louis for local merchants to accept Goldcoin. We now have our first retail merchant in the area which is a local barbershop. At some point in the near future we'll begin building out the POS terminals.

Sunday Meeting June 11 Highlights

There's been a lot going on within the Goldcoin community over the past two weeks. At today's meeting I made the first test of my new mobile Skype rig made up of the new Logitech 4K webcam, Sennheiser headset, and IBM Thinkpad.

I'm building the rig in preparation for next year's North American Goldcoin Tour (see below).  :wave:

~~

1.  For the past several weeks all email functions of the forum have been crippled. I mistakenly commented out the openssl extension in PHP on the website server. A friendly Twitter user recently contacted me and alerted me to the problem. Email service has now been fully restored.

Email Bug Thread: https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=3859.0

2.  Eric has announced he is buying a MAC computer so he can develop the iOS wallet. If you would like to contribute to this project, you can send a GLD donation here: E1A6WogjpqU3KjjoRUD63f7kofrFozmyfg

3.  Recently I've been testing Purse.io by buying various items w/ bitcoin on Amazon. Once the client update is released we can look into the possibility of getting Goldcoin added to ShapeShift making GLD Amazon payments possible.

4.  We're seeing an increase in activity in the Goldcoin telegram group. You can join the group here: https://t.me/goldcointalk

5.  In 2018 we will launch the "North American Goldcoin Tour" whereby I will travel the continent in a Class A motorhome w/ full Goldcoin advertising wrap. I'll be setting up booths at technology conferences, cryptocurrency conferences, and also sponsoring myself in 5K Cross County races decked out in full Goldcoin racing attire.

6.  The United States node count percentage (wallet users in the US) has just exceeded the 50% threshold. Overall Goldcoin node count is also increasing (avg per 24 hours = +300). Source: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/gld/#!network

7.  The team is currently looking for an experienced broadcaster to stream/record our Sunday team meetings. The salary is 1000 GLD per episode. If you are interested in applying for this position, please attend the next Sunday meeting.

8.  Amir has announced an upcoming rebase (likely candidate 0.8.7.5) of the core client. The projected release date for this update is early to mid August. We will provide more details over the coming weeks.

9.  On June 6th, Goldcoin reached an intraday marketcap of US$5,500,000 on volume of $250,000. This was an all-time record for both the price and volume. Source: http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/goldcoin/

10.  Goldcoin payment plugin installed at DrGerald.net is working flawlessly. Order confirmation after transmitting payment occurs in seconds.

11.  There are still over 100 altcoin wallets remaining in the Cryptsy Relief Project. If you are interested in one of these remaining wallets, you should make a request here: https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=3789.0

12.  TryGoldcoin now has a new merchant account w/ custom payment gateway. We now have the ability to alternate payment processors to increase redundancy and lessen the chances of a gateway disruption.

13.  The United States node count percentage (wallet users in the US) has just exceeded the 50% threshold. Overall Goldcoin node count is also increasing (avg per 24 hours = +300). Source: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/gld/#!network

Sunday Meeting June 25 Highlights

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

1.  In order to increase forum accessibility, a Facebook forum login has been added. This allows users with a Facebook account to signup with one click. I'll look into getting Twitter and Google added this week.

2.  This month was held the first German meetup between Cryptosolar and Stemis (who was traveling to Germany). In addition, node count in the country is at an all-time high and now makes up nearly 5% of the network.

https://www.goldcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3881.0

3.  Gerald Higginbotham continues to raise funds for his Garden of Eden project. More on this project next week.

4.  It was suggested that our meeting time be moved up to avoid conflicts with Sunday church activity. The new meeting time is 7 p.m eastern (6 p.m central).

5.  The GoldCoin Talk forum domain was changed from GLDTALK.ORG to GOLDCOINTALK.ORG. The depreciated domain will continue to provide forwarding service for a minimum of 1 year.

6.  There are indications that our anti SegWit position is attracting bitcoin purists who are disillusioned with the current bitcoin infighting. Goldcoin is 100% committed to Satoshi's original vision which means the primary chain should never be throttled. The code enforces a social contract by its users who demand that Goldcoin remain sovereign, decentralized, and trustless.

(https://www.goldcointalk.org/devteam/segcode.png)

7.  Last week Goldcoin reached its all-high in both price and volume with an intraday price of 15 cents on volume of $250,000.00. Source: http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/goldcoin/#charts

8. There have been recent upgrades to the payment gateway and mail server for TryGoldcoin.com. All site email is now routed through Amazon SES while the local SMTP server is being depreciated.

9.  This fall Steve Conley will be kicking off a 19-city Goldcoin Tour speaking at historic black colleges across America.

10. We experienced an over-capacity issue with Skype at the beginning of the meeting. Skype disables audio and video when a group exceeds 24 users. This problem was resolved by removing group users who were not present for the meeting.
 
11.  Russia now accounts for our third largest country based on node count. It now makes up over 5% of the Goldcoin network. Source: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/gld/#!network

Sunday Meeting July 09 Highlights

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

1.  We expect to release a code rebase over the next few weeks. This work has been delayed due to the fact we refuse to allow SegWit into the Goldcoin client.

2.  The iFlychat forum integration is now complete w/ chat service plan prepaid for 1 year. This is one of the best chat apps available on the internet and we're happy we could bring it back to Goldcoin Talk community.

3.  This week Goldcoin broke its all-time price and daily volume records for the second consecutive week.

4.  Goldcoin website updated with refined mission statement. "Goldcoin is the World's first hard money. A super secure value store and cash payment system for the new digital World."

5.  We are closely monitoring the bitcoin situation as various important dates approach. There's a strong possibility that in early August the main bitcoin blockchain could split into 3 or more viable chains.

6. If you are talented in video production, we're still seeking an individual to screen capture and publish our weekly team meetings. This position pay $100 per session.

Sunday Meeting July 23 Highlights

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

1.  Goldcoin continues breaking records. Since our last meeting we have reached all-time intraday highs for both price and market volume. In addition, this week TryGoldcoin is expected to break its all-time monthly sales record.

2.  River analogy provided by MicroGuy: Goldcoin is like a mountain river with twists and turns, moments of challenge, and periods of calm. And just like a mighty river, Goldcoin refuses to be tamed and will never be stopped.

3.  The community is developing a new marketing strategy that communicates the currency's commitment to on-chain scaling and the rejection of contaminating, incentive sapping protocol changes like Segwit. Goldcoin refuses to allow itself to become compromised.

4.  This month it was reported on Twitter that Goldcoin is the best performing currency out of every other cryptocurrency from June 2013 to date. This includes Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Peercoin. Source: https://twitter.com/BitcoinBlogCZ/status/887379656273534979

5.  Goldcoin has just been added to several additional markets at NovaExchange (https://novaexchange.com/) including Ethereum market, Dogecoin market, and Litecoin market.

Sunday Meeting August 6th Highlights

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

Note: The information below consists largely of my pre-meeting notes. Today's meeting went long and there were several topics discussed during the Q&A portion of the meeting not included below. If you want to be sure to catch everything, simply don't miss a meeting.  :P

Opening: "GoldCoin (GLD) is the world's first Hard Money. A super secure value store and cash payment system for the New Digital World."

1.  The protocol is fundamental. The underlying structure of anything will determine its behavior. When you change the protocol, you change everything. Most people don't think structurally, they think situationally.

2.  What the world wants is sovereign money; basically the antithesis of what we've had for the past 100 years. The only way this can be achieved is by means of the protocol. The only way this can be stopped is by means of the protocol. (thought: People that do not understand the protocol are ill equipped to take part in consensus voting.)

3.  Goldcoin is now supported by Trading View. Trading View is one of the largest and most active trading communities on the web, with over 1,000,000 monthly active users from 100+ countries. https://www.tradingview.com/symbols/GLDBTC/

4.  Goldcoin has met an area of market resistance at the 10 cent level. This is primarily due to the fact 10 cents is the all-time high, sans short term spikes. Order book ask depth indicates the strength of this resistance is weakening. Being on parity with the dime is also influencing this rut.

5.  Sabur who attended today's meeting has agreed to screen record the next community meeting. We have not decided whether this will be a live stream or simply recorded video and later published. Either way, we plan to make the August 20th meeting available for viewing on YouTube.

6.  Advertising. Albert Milligan has devised a social media advertising strategy that is now in its second week. This strategy involves capturing social media conversions by promoting our brand, our dedication to on-chain scaling, and strict adherence to the concepts as outlined in Satoshi's original whitepaper.

Goldcoin is sovereign money. Its economic incentives shall remain unmolested, its permissionless and trustless character untarnished.

Sunday Meeting August 20th Highlights

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

Note: The information below consists largely of my pre-meeting notes. There were several topics discussed during the Q&A portion of the meeting not included below. If you want to be sure to catch everything, be sure to catch the next meeting.

Opening: "GoldCoin (GLD) is the world's first Hard Money. A super secure value store and cash payment system for the New Digital World."

1.  Nova Exchange volume has been increasing lately and accounted for the second highest Goldcoin volume over the past 24 hours behind Bittrex. This is a positive sign indicating greater trading distribution.

2.  Mike Hearn has just released never-before-seen letters between himself and Satoshi Nakamoto. These letters provide the last remaining pieces of the puzzle. We now have the the entire blueprint for completing the vision of a trustless, permissionless currency (aka digital gold), and delivering it via the Goldcoin brand.

Source: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2080206.0

3.  Today's meeting was recorded via screen capture and will be archived for possible publishing at a late date.

4.  As predicted at our last Sunday meeting, Goldcoin has broken through its 10 cents resistance level of 4 years. It appears that 10 cents is now a strong level of support. The Goldcoin price continues to demonstrate remarkable stability, considering the recent turbulence in Bitcoin, and continues its steady upward trajectory month over month.

5.  To ensure success we must remove all potential points of failure. As long as we are dependent on any device, exchange, provider, or individual, we are exposed and at risk. The internet is a prime example of proper decentralized scale. Goldcoin aims to be the internet of money. There is no other way to achieve unlimited scale.

 "Distributed, decentralized systems have an inherent power that literally obsoletes centralized systems. This is obvious even to the most casual observer. We have known this for decades. It was not until the arrival of the blockchain, however, that we had a tool capable of melding "decentralized" and "distributed" into a single unit within which no central authority whatsoever was necessary." ~ John McAfee

1. Bitcoin cash model. One set of consensus rules, multiple development teams.

2. Distributed and decentralized. We must have both.

"Distributed, decentralized systems have an inherent power that literally obsoletes centralized systems. This is obvious even to the most casual observer. We have known this for decades. It was not until the arrival of the blockchain, however, that we had a tool capable of melding "decentralized" and "distributed" into a single unit within which no central authority whatsoever was necessary." ~ John McAfee

3. Strength wins over excuses. Be dedicated and strong.

4. New writer. Press release and white paper coming next week.

5. Need more buyers on Bittrex and more mentions on Twitter.

6. Craigslist ads in 2 Indian cities. Need rep from India on dev team.

7. India is now in the #3 Goldcoin country and shows no signs of slowing.

8. New youtube creator. First video has been produced.

9. Still working to improve organization and communication of core development.

10. Goldcoin is trading at 17 cents, 8 cents shy of year-end price target.

11. Local investor meeting for first time. Edward Jones now referring all cryptocurrency clients to me.

12. Who in the hell is selling at these prices. Absolutely insane. (<< how did this get here?)

"point 5. Need more buyers on Bittrex and more mentions on Twitter."

I for one used to keep the buyside up on Bittrex, but now my withdraws are locked at Bittrex with no warning, no solution despite tickets etc, I was a legacy member with 1337BTC withdraw limit, now 0 BTC withdraw limit, my coins are stuck (including all recently purchased goldcoin), seems thousands have the same problem (look at their twitter).

My advice therefore is don't trade on Bittrex!  I think community should be warned.

Also with the current situation Goldcoin needs a new main exchange with urgency.

Also with the current situation Goldcoin needs a new main exchange with urgency.

1) there was a warning on bittrex since roughly a month that verification is comming, but everything was working fine :)
since a few weeks now they activated the limits, so everybody had enough time to withdraw the funds from bittrex :)

2) The time where you can move around millions of dollars around the internet anonymous seems slowly but surly come to an end.

3) I am not sure if it makes sense to get on another exchange, because they will also have KYC , so if you verify yourself on bittrex or on another exchanges comes to the same end i guess.

anyway, thx for warning :) and nice to see you still around here  :thumbsup:

Hi Cryptosolar, Yep busy in the real world, but still around these parts :)

My warnings not about having to be verified or KYC requirements, its about peoples funds locked without warning, btw I am verified at Bittrex.

Many many people (just read their twitter replies and btt threads) have been lock out of their funds, some they use the verify excuse and the system fails to accept their verification, others already verfied wake up to funds being locked.

I'm personally fine i never keep more the 1% on any exchange so I can take the hit (though not impressed), but what about those at whose money is significant to them no matter the amount and this close to christmas.
Anyone who's been around this community awhile will notice Gox and Cryptsy both delayed withdraws citing verification as an excuse for months.....we know how that turned out.

Just a friendly reminder to all; never leave more then you are directly trading on any exchange. Keep your Goldcoins safe :)

Also its a good time for Goldcoin to explore other places to obtain goldcoin, lets not take too much a hit on Goldcoins progress by having one exchange with most the volume.

Sunday Meeting December 10th Highlights

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

I'd like to thank everyone for attending tonight's important Skype meeting. This week we had both our Senior Developer and Chief Scientist present along with Team India and several community members. I'm sure we broke the attendance record. Below you will find a brief summary of the various topics discussed.

(https://www.goldcointalk.org/devteam/bruce.jpg)

1. Eric's work on the iPhone app has been outstanding. Last week, the app was approved by Apple for beta testing and several volunteers have already signed up to help test the app before it goes live in the Apple Store. If you would like to participate in TestFlight testing, please see the following link:

https://www.goldcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3988.0

2. The perfect domain for our project's official website is clearly GOLDCOIN.ORG. After a pursuit that has lasted several years, this week the community can finally claim the domain as its own. We now join the ranks of Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and many others. The domain goldcoin.org has already been transferred to our escrow agent and should go live sometime today (Monday).

Coming this week: https://www.goldcoin.org

3. New reporting system for contract developers. The Core team has contracted several professional developers to assist us with our ambitious network upgrade (currently underway). Eric and Cryptosolar have established a work reporting system that allows us to better track and organize the Slack team.

You can find the roadmap here: https://www.gldcoin.com/roadmap/

4. The renowned writer Andrew Rosenbaum has agreed to author the "Official Goldcoin Whitepaper." This whitepaper will give investors and other interested parties a single authoritative source for learning about our currency's design, its mission, and underlying ideology. This paper will be published on the Goldcoin website this week.

5. Team India in collaboration with Cryptosolar is building a 1.5 GH/s solar mining farm expected to begin operations in early February. This project will be an excellent promotional tool for Goldcoin while also helping to improve overall mining distribution.

6. The Christmas marketing campaign is showing results. Our Marketing Director Albert Milligan is overseeing our Christmas marketing campaign which features various articles and press releases alerting the public to our brand and its ongoing development. We plan to ramp up this ad campaign in the final weeks before Christmas. Be sure to follow Goldcoin on Twitter as we tweet each press release and promoted article.

Goldcoin on Twitter: https://twitter.com/goldcoin

7. There have been many new additions to the official website including a newsletter, GLD price ticker, blog, and press release sections. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter today if you're interested in keeping up with breaking Goldcoin news.

Newsletter signup (scroll down page to see form): https://www.gldcoin.com/

8. Our community continues to grow by leaps and bounds. The Facebook group has just reached 1000 members and Telegram has exceeded 250 members. We encourage all Goldcoin adopters to stay connected with the community by using these social platforms.

Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goldcointalk/
Telegram Group: https://t.me/goldcoin

9. The Goldcoin Developers Group is in the process of renewing its Thawte code signing certificate. This required a new letter from our certified public accountant. We expect to be awarded a new Thawte 2-year certificate early this week.

10. To ensure the community will have future income for research, development, and general operations we are exploring various fund raising options. Coinbuilder.org features the new Woocommerce Goldcoin plugin which could be used since testing of the plugin is complete. A domain change and site update is all that's needed to make it operational for collecting funds.

Future home of fund raising? http://coinbuilder.org/

11. The new Goldcoin client has been completed and is ready for our testnet. The Slack team will use a special 500 MH/s ASIC rig from India during testing as the remaining team GPU mines. This will allow us to test the functionality of our 51% defense system in the new updated client.

Sunday Meeting December 31st Highlights:

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

I'd like to thank everyone for attending tonight's important Skype meeting. This week we had our Senior Developer, Marketing Director, and several community members in attendance. This was an extended meeting about 2 hours in length. Below you will find a brief summary of the various topics discussed.

1.  Since our last meeting trading was halted on Bittrex after an unprecedented price spike and was then resumed after Goldcoin passed a few additional compliance checks. Although our price has increased significantly over the past several months, we are still considered a small cap market.

In order to ensure our uninterrupted listing on Bittrex we must continue growing and improving our overall ranking which is currently around #387 in the world. We should make it a top priority to get into the top 200 during 2018.

(https://www.goldcointalk.org/devteam/ranking2.jpg)

View current ranking: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/goldcoin/#markets

2.  Since our last meeting Goldcoin reached an all-time-high of 36 cents on December 19th. We reached all of our internal targets for 2017. Now it's time to take Goldcoin to the next level and return to the top 200 in 2018.

Goldcoin is a hardened version of Bitcoin with 10X the capacity and 5X the transaction speed. The tech fits the brand perfectly. Once people grow into this understanding, they won't want USD, BTC, YEN, or EURO. The people will demand Goldcoin.

3.  The Android app is routinely reporting an incorrect exchange rate. This is because the price is being retrieved from the C-CEX API. Eric has been made aware of this issue and is working on an update that will use a more reliable price source. The fix will use coinmarketcap and/or Bittrex for exchange rate calculations.

4.  To increase redundancy, we should get Goldcoin listed on an additional exchange. Two of our previous exchanges, NovaExchange and CoinGather, have recently closed while C-CEX looks shaky closing for an entire month so staff could go on holiday. The Goldcoin team has submitted applications for listings on Poloniex and Binance.

5.  Last week, the iPhone app developed a bug that caused transactions to appear as unconfirmed. This issue has been resolved. If you are participating in our TestFlight beta program, please be sure to update the app to the latest beta version.

iOS beta thread: https://www.goldcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3988.0

6.  The community is calling for a website makeover. An investor group of 17 has offered to help fund the website makeover project. We will be working with Albert Milligan and our website designer to explore various options for improving the overall appearance of the official site which is hosted at Goldcoin.org (https://www.goldcoin.org).

7.  The new Goldcoin client is currently being tested and we now need a pool for our Testnet. If you are capable of running a pool and would like to help, please make a post in the new Testnet thread on the forum.

Testnet thread: https://www.goldcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4018.0

8.  I am very happy to report that the most difficult task of all has been mastered in terms of the rebase. Both the 51% defense system and Golden River difficulty algorithm have been successfully integrated into the new 0.14.2 codebase.

Sunday Meeting February 04th Highlights:

Please find below highlights from Sunday's Skype meeting.

Opening remarks: "I'd like to thank everyone for attending tonight's important Skype meeting. Many of the decisions being made right now in Slack and in this group will affect the network for the next thousand years. So they're important. This is because the larger Goldcoin gets the harder it will be to hard fork."

1. We have just initiated Testnet Version 2 with the new Goldcoin client. This latest update features a new checkbox inside the client that allows the sending of free transactions under 1000 bytes in size. The median transaction size is 226 bytes meaning most transactions will be eligible for ZF (zero fee).

Each block has 5% (100 KB) reserved for free transactions. This means the Goldcoin network can accommodate 440 free transactions each 2 minutes (each block) or a total or 316,800 free transactions per day. This amount will be increased to 1 million ZF transactions per day this fall when we increase the block size.

(https://www.goldcointalk.org/devteam/free_transactions.jpg)

2. Quantum proofing. It has been suggested that we explore the possibility of making Goldcoin quantum computer proof. This would give us an additional edge over other cryptocurrencies that lack this protection.

3. There are currently two whitepapers being developed; 1 short version, and 1 long version. The whitepapers will describe in detail the advantages of using Goldcoin and provide technical information about the inner workings of the Goldcoin protocol.

4. It was suggested on Telegram yesterday that we update the website's "About" page to include all the developers from our Slack team. This update is now finished and features a complete list with bio of each or our six talented developers.

Website About page: https://www.goldcoin.org/about/

5. Goldcoin has decided to end its relationship with C-CEX after reports of missing deposits and horrible support. This leaves us with two fine exchanges perfectly capable of handing our trading volume. Once the new client is released later this month, we will actively pursue additional listings with reputable exchanges.

6. We have produced an easy to understand comparison table that outlines the key differences between Goldcoin and Bitcoin and Litecoin.

(https://www.goldcointalk.org/devteam/comparison.jpg)

7. We are adding events weekly to the 2018 Goldcoin World Tour. We currently have events scheduled in the United State, India, and Germany.

Event Schedule: https://www.goldcoin.org/roadmap/

8. The Telegram Team has now grown to over 700 members. You can join the Telegram Team by installing Telegram and clicking here: https://t.me/goldcoin

9. Last month sales on trygoldcoin.com reached an all-time-high doubling the previous highest recorded month.

10. The Goldcoin store has added several new items including new Indian merchandise. Store link: https://www.teepublic.com/user/goldcoin
