[ANN][SLOTH] Slothcoin 1.3.1 build 3 AKA 300K fork
« on: February 23, 2017, 09:24:39 AM »

With the release of version 1.3.1 build 3, Slothcoin became a community driven project. In a true Open Source fashion a team of voluntary contributers stepped in to continue the work of the original Slothcoin creator Thimo. The major changes kicked in automaticly from block 300K onwards. Since october 2015 all nodes went to use version 1.3.1 build 3. In line with a certain SF movie cycle the previous Sloth has been named Sloda and his offspring Sluke.   ;)

All good things take time, that is the slogan of the latest version of Slothcoin. Yet, it is way faster than Bitcoin, for instance. An AltCoin to solo-mine, yes, true, it can still be solo-mined! Even on an energy friendly PC, it can still find a block that pays 4321 SLOTH! Have a go at it by just using the build in CPU miner, it might surprise you...

About Slothcoin (SLOTH):

  • SHA-3 keccak encryption algorithm
  • POW mining until 2021
  • Difficulty retargeting using Kimoto Gravity Well
  • DIGI shield
  • Retargeting every block, (from 300K++)
  • 150 second blocktime
  • 120 block maturity
  • 5 block transaction confirmation
  • Changed reward system (from block 300K++)
  • Port: 5107


Reward system (from block 300K++):

924765 * 4321

Somewhere in 2021:

802 * 1

(By 2021 there will be 92 billion SLOTH)

MAKE SURE YOU USE VERSION 1.3.1b3!

Today I noticed a real classic version 1.2.1 of Slothcoin in the network. Better update that one before it is too late;)

The latest version of Slothcoin, v1.3.1b3, can be downloaded here:
http://slick.cf/coin/sloth/download/

Keep the wallet and the .conf file if you do, of course, but it might be needed to delete the old blockchain files and then let it get up to date again. Will take a while, but enough peers in the network to make it update fast.

Sloth all the way!
