#SysCoin: [ANN] and Launch details
« on: 02. July 2014., 00:46:03 »
This coin hasn't launched yet. An IPO is on it's way. After months and months of talk and preparation, current early-bird access for IPO will start around July 14th... And I was asked to write a summary article about and for them.

So let's begin with the basics from their website syscoin.org.

Quote
BUSINESS ON THE BLOCKCHAIN

Sell anything directly on the Blockchain or build a site for your business that will use SysCoin's infrastructure to conclude it's transactions.

So: you can list items in the blockchain and sell those items through the blockchain. You can also use the blockchain as a real payments provider if you run a website.

Quote
BROKERAGE ON THE BLOCKCHAIN

Send and receive discreet data. The network's cryptography audits these transfers and ensures that this data cannot be corrupted.

So: your listed items and financial transactions will be encrypted by default.

Quote
CERTIFICATES ON THE BLOCKCHAIN

Issue and trade digital certificates directly on the Blockchain. Stocks, bonds, assets and ownership certificates no longer have to rely on a broker to be traded.

So: items listed encrypted in the blockchain can be anything: including stock bonds. The blockchain will act as the broker.

Quote
MINERS MATTER!

All the sysCoin innovations generate fees that are passed on to miners. Use SysCoin's merged-mining capability to double the return for your hashing power.

So: transactions are not free. Earned funds will be used to pay miners.
Merged mining?? Long story short: you can PoW-hash for the "easy" sysCoin (relatively low difficulty) and hope you accidently found a valid bitcoin block too... More information here.

The coin developers are well known - just look at the website. Photos, names, all is there. I've seen this differently for other IPOs. Even further, they are the creators of KittehCoin, for which they were rated Best Dev Team at the CryptoAwards!

Quote
We are still thinking about the IPO/premine structure and are not bound to a 15% premine if the community feels strongly otherwise.

Quote
We took a long hard look at the numbers and we actually reduced the initially planned premine by almost 50%! From 15% down to 8%. Only 5% of which is actually available for presale via the IPO.

Quote
We're also allocating a small percentage (1%) of the premine to bounties and rewards so that there can be a rich ecosystem around Syscoin at launch.


So it's getting better and better. What more could I find? Well, let's look at the [PRE-ANN] and the new Infographic they created...


Looks great. Cool to see the kitteh devs again. So is there a new dev doing the merged mining etc? The reason I ask is because you guys teased merged mining for kitteh and estimated it was a month off back in feb. Basically none of the hard hitting new features ever made it to MEOW. Is that because you were working on this coin or because you needed a dev that could do it?

I don't mean to offend and I witnessed the hard work that went into kitteh I just want that explained before I invest into this sick looking coin :)

We had merge mining ready (literally, in a private repo) and really thought that would help and be a big thing for kitteh. But there was a lot of confusion around it and people actually went so far as to call it a "scam" so we pulled back on that as well (rethinking the approach to merge mine kittehcoin with another coin; whereas SYS can be mined with ANY coin, or on its own). 

At that point an identical featureset (and so much more) had already been developed in the background so to speak by Coderboo over the course of several months. The merge-mining/namecoin like features present in Syscoin do represent some of the original promise of Kittehcoin yet in a much more suitable form (not a memecoin). Syscoin also represents so much more- taking its featureset further than just the namecoin like merge-mining capabilities. Because there is so much room for innovation within a coin like "Syscoin" and there will be so many large value-added features present at launch it just naturally made sense to devote more attention to this type of innovative initiative (while I still love and support kittehcoin as much as possible).

Nice name. it’s better to make the logo look nice.what are the plans for future develoment.

When we come out with the official IPO ann we'll include further details on the feature roadmap outside of the initial launch featureset.

Can you distribute say like a video file instead of a cert through this? 

How big of a file can be sent through the blockchain?

There will be the ability to attach discrete data outside of just certs on the blockchain but the size of the files will dictate the fee to store them (these fees are still being determined so I don't have an answer as to how much the fees will be). I would have to check on the videos question- my initial response would be "yes but the file size for videos would be so small it wouldn't be very usable" but I don't know that for sure yet so let me check and get back to you, good question.

The goal of SYS blockchain data storage is more toward docs, certs, manuals, licenses, market transaction information/offers/etc than to store large pieces of data like bluray video rips or mp3 collections.

although i am still sad and still crying about you leaving kittehcoin..
I see no other choice but wishing you good luck with this coin.
some very interesting features...

I hope the difficulty will not skyrocket too soon (it probably will..) maybe i can mine some even without ASIC

edit: and i can think about a nice coin that can be merge mine with this... hmmm!

We're bummed too but excited for the chance to be part of this coin from the start. I'll still personally be supporting Kittehcoin with the little free time I have but SYS is definitely where my focus is. Really appreciate your support and we hope to be able to supply you with even more SYS through bounties and giveaways!

if you screw the ipo and bring down your prmine to less than 1% this will be a screaming success.

The features Syscoin brings to the table are substantial- this isn't a clone coin or simply a change in the PoW for a coin. We aren't cloning a coin and launching a multipool. This is real innovation. That innovation has taken a not insignificant amount of time and effort to develop (and test). We may knock the premine down a bit, reducing the amount of the bounty/giveaway portion but we wouldn't go below 10% in order to ensure the future success of this coin.

Seems intresting. I will be waiting for ANN info and will decide then about my support.

Thanks for the support! Looking forward to any other questions I can answer... hoping to put together a little graphic on how the market-transaction process works (posting an item for sale [on the blockchain] as a merchant and then buying that item on the other side as a consumer).


And last but not least: a copy of the full [Pre-ANN] :)
Syscoin Pre-Announcement
Business on the Blockchain


General info:
 
Innovation at it's best, Syscoin isn't just another crypto currency- it is also a value-added service and financial infrastructure integrated directly into its blockchain - something like this has never been done before! Syscoin is a crypto-currency and a financial infrastructure all in one!

Syscoin implements a distributed marketplace integrated directly into the blockchain and more! This provides huge benefits to businesses or individuals looking to secure their data or marketplace in a decentralized manner that can never be "taken down" by having a single point of failure- the network makes this impossible. Now businesses can use Syscoin's incorruptible network to ensure the security of their sensitive data even if their redundancy systems fail - in the blockchain we trust!

Syscoin ensures the health of it's network with the ability to be merge-mined with any other SCRYPT coin. Syscoin provides a variety of useful decentralized, cryptographically-secured services based on Bitcoin's Blockchain technology:

 


  • Business on the Blockchain. Buy and sell anything with Syscoin's distributed marketplace integrated into the blockchain. This isn't a cryptocurrency PLUS a marketplace. It's a marketplace built into a cryptocurrency. The Syscoin network enables the creation of marketplaces of any kind, ranging from small community trading platforms to large corporate marketplaces like eBay to fully encrypted hidden marketplaces. This does not limit itself to marketplaces that accept only Syscoin. Syscoin's blockchain innovations are merely an infrastructure upon which marketplaces can be built.
     
  • Brokerage on the Blockchain. Exchange discrete data directly on the Blockchain. Documents like deeds, wills, trusts, stocks, bonds and contracts can now be created, mutually agreed upon, and transferred without the necessity of a third-party to authenticate the transaction; the Syscoin network itself acts as the third party, guaranteeing cryptographically-verifiable authenticity. Syscoin provides a foundation for the creation of provably fair arbitration systems which cannot be corrupted.
     
  • Certificates on the Blockchain. Using the cryptography of the Blockchain; Issue, authorize, and exchange digital certificates. With Syscoin, anyone can register as a certificate issuer and issue provably-unique certificates which can be authenticated by anyone using Syscoin's cryptographic proof of work. This allows for the creation and free exchange of a any kind of digital asset such as stocks, bonds, ownership certificates, warranties, receipts, tickets, certifications, diplomas, software licenses.

  • Miners Matter! By being universally merge-mineable with all Scrypt coins, Syscoin is prepared for the coming Scrypt ASIC boom. By simultaneously distributing coins to anyone mining any other Scrypt coin, it ensures that both democratic coin distribution and strong network health are achieved shortly after Syscoin's genesis.


Specifications:
 


Proof-of-work algorithm: SCRYPT (merge mineable with any SCRYPT coin)
Multipool protection: SysCoin uses KGW to retarget difficulty every block. SysCoin uses extremely small minimum and maximum values as algorithmic inputs, which effectively allows Syscoin's difficulty to re-target much more rapidly and accurately than other cryptocurrencies that use KGW.

Premine: 8% [5% Presale, 2% Devs, 1% Bounties and Rewards] [/size]

Syscoin - A Scrypt-based, Merge-mineable coin with Certificate Issuance, Distributed Marketplace, Document Exchange, and Data Storage Services
 
Service Fees:
 
Fees are an important part of the Syscoin network since they enable the existence of Syscoin and all of it's innovative services. Syscoin directly recycles transaction fees by regenerating them and redistributing them to network miners. The regeneration of service fees is the key incentive for miners to continue to mine Syscoin once all base coins are mined, and thus enable and guarantee its services into the future.
 

Development Team and Status:
 


Syscoin's team is not new to the industry, they bring the experience of an award-winning team to drive this incredibly innovative project. The team wanted to be able to release ground-breaking technology without limiting itself to any one specific innovation. Hence, the name Syscoin was coined- it allows for the building of multiple value-added and innovative services without being constrained to a single innovation.
 
All Syscoin features described here have been implemented and the Syscoin wallet is currently in beta testing.



For the doubters... Is this for real ???

for real??

Yes.  I've been working on Syscoin for five months now. I started right after the new year and syscoin is the result of a lot of hard work and consideration.  I built the syscoin client around the litecoin v0.8.6.2 codebase.  Then  I added scrypt merge mining.  Then, I dissected the namecoin and datacoin codebases, as well as half a dozen other clients, and applied that knowledge - and some of my ideas and lessons learned to implement all of Syscoin's service offerings. 

Honestly, I'm proud of my work. Syscoin's service offerings and sheer scope of utility past its use as currency are something that I feel proud of releasing for public consumption.  It's certainly more novel and more useful than 99% of the 'Our Shitcoin community supports herpderpistan and has 17 zillion rotating hashing algorithms so support this coin now!' posts you'll see in this category.

Frankly, I'm starting to scratch my head a bit that it took so long for someone to post an 'is this for real' comment. I expected one by page two. Syscoin is very real - the client has all the features mentioned fully implemented and in beta now.  I assure you, neither I nor anyone of our team have no time to waste on scams and vapor or the fools we'd suffer in the process.

If you (replier or thread reader) are someone serious and knowledgeable about bitcoin / namecoin and you're curious about syscoin, please PM dan.  We're certainly open to more private dialogue with you.

Moolah Partnership

The Syscoin Team is pleased to announce that we've officially partnered with Moolah (Moopay LTD) (http://moolah.io). Moolah is securing the Syscoin presale via their escrow platform. We have a dedicated partnership in place so there will be a custom portal specifically for Syscoin presale investors to reserve their coins. Once the Syscoin Team successfully delivers/launches Syscoin, Moolah will assist in distributing the Syscoin to investors via pub/priv keys that can be imported directly into your Syscoin wallet.

This partnership goes beyond just the presale and launch of Syscoin. Moolah offers a host of crypto related services to the global marketplace, they are not just limited to US customers. They have a trading platform, a merchant platform, and an escrow platform already in place and are in the process of building numerous other services for the crypto space. They have never once been hacked. This is a strategic partnership not only to provide a secure escrow platform for presale investors but also to allow for long term growth of Syscoin via an immediate ecosystem of services enabled by Moolah. Moolah is currently in the process of transitioning all of their core services to their V2 platform for assured reliability- Syscoin will be available through these services. Moolah's V2 trading platform will also be the first exchange to offer Syscoin.

There are natural intersections between the services Syscoin offers and the platform capabilities Moolah can directly implement on top those distributed services. We look forward to exploring these possibilities with the Moolah team. Together we could bring the first decentralized large-scale marketplaces, digital certificates, datastore, and other such services to the mainstream market. We're excited to announce this partnership and move forward with such a well known pillar of the crypto community!

Syscoin Presale Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Q: When will I get my Syscoin? Do I get them now!?
A: Syscoin purchased via presale will be delivered when the coin launches. It is impossible to deliver it sooner. The coin launch is scheduled for August 16th but may happen sooner; plan on August 16th.


Q: Are there refunds?
A: Only if the Syscoin Team doesn't deliver Syscoin with the features as promised.

Q: What if the presale doesn't sell out? Do buyers get the unsold Syscoin?
A: No, only what is purchased will be premined and delivered. Buyers get what they pay for.

Q: Why is this fixed price? Shouldn't it be share-based?
A: A base price is needed to establish fees for the myriad of Syscoin services. Additionally this is a presale not an IPO. It is not share based.

Q: When will the coin launch?
A: We will launch by Aug 16th 2014 or possibly sooner if the presale sells out sooner and the platform is ready.

Q: What's the difference between Sys and Ether?
A: Syscoin is based on well known, peer reviewed codebases (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Namecoin) that have been combined and extended. Ethereum is an attempted rewrite of this in a sense to try and deliver a turing-complete smart contract solution. This is not the same as Syscoin. Additionally:
  • If you want to see your investment this year, Syscoin is delivered August 16, 2014.
  • The amount of ether that will be mined every year is dependent on how many they sell during IPO. The more they sell the more that will be mined the year of release, giving a bigger dilution to the already mined/bought coins.
  • After Ether presale closes you have to wait till at least December/January to see anything; if at all.
  • Syscoin offers a 100% refund on failure to deliver (escrow thru Moolah). Ethereum team is allowed to use up to 5000btc before anything is even done properly or working and if it is a complete failure not a single refund.

Q: What's the difference between Sys and Cloakcoin?
A: Please see this detailed comparison.

Q: Can I sell my presale Syscoin before the coin launches?
A: Not through any means the Syscoin Team is providing.

Q: How will I get my physical reward after purchasing presale coins?
A: The Syscoin Team will have a portal up in the next few days where you can enter your presale purchase info and and ship-to address. Once verified you're reward will be shipped ASAP. We ship internationally.

Q: What do you mean when you say Moolah will be the exclusive exchange? Will Syscoin not be on other exchanges?
A: We have a partnership with Moolah and will be coordinating with them to get Syscoin on all of their platforms [including exchange] at launch as part of this partnership. This doesn't mean other exchanges can't add us. We're just working directly with Moolah in a much larger sense to try to make Syscoin's capabilities more accessible to the masses so their's will be the first exchange we are listed on.

Q: I didn't send enough BTC for my presale purchase because I forgot the network fee! What do I do?
A: Simply "top up" the address you sent the initial payment to, within 6hrs you'll get a confirmation that you're top-up was successfully registered and presale purchase is complete.

Q: I like what your team is doing and wanted to purchase more presale coins, how do I do that?
A: Thanks! Please walk through the form on the Moolah site a second time. You will get a new BTC address to send funds to, do NOT send the funds to the same address as the first purchase. Don't forget to include fees!

Q: How long have you been working on this project? And could you briefly describe your planned time commitment to this going forward?
A: 8+ months, time commitment moving forward is as much time as we have outside of our normal day-job/lives and we are also on-boarding additional developers to supplement that capacity if/when needed.

Q: How does the coin production/distribution setup provide insulation from the risk of massive miner/whale dumps? Is there an estimate out there of the max # of daily BTC trading volume that might be needed to absorb mined coins?
A: If you check out the schedule here I think the values at the far right speak for themselves. Also keep in mind there is a 25btc limit per buyer in an attempt to insulate from an over-concentration of wealth leading to "massive dumps"



Q: How will delivery be verified. Is there a disinterested third party that will verify the guaranteed-or-refund features are 100% delivered (marketplace, certificates, name aliases, and data aliases) and work well?
A: Delivery is verified by the Syscoin team similar to every other coin released in today's market. The code will be open source at launch so anyone can review it for additional verification; but the initial delivery testing and verification of the features is the responsibility of the Syscoin team. We will have demo videos of all of these features working before launch so people have a better understanding of them. No third parties are involved in verification as none were involved in forming the requirements. There is too much room for interpretation there. If investors had sent BTC prior to us implementing/writing a single line of code and provided a requirements spec-doc then this type of approach would be more feasible.

The Syscoin team has developed requirements stipulating concretely that all of these services are implemented directly on the blockchain- meaning everything is inherently decentralized and the coin can be merge mined (or regular mined) with the specs/schedule as advertised. Beyond that the design of the individual services themselves were developed in-house and as such will need to be tested/verified as functional by the team. We considered putting out a beta but the overhead of managing this would prevent the team from working on delivering things like the [additional] escrow feature by launch (currently being worked on).

Q: What immediate plans do you have beyond delivery of these core guaranteed features to further increase the value of the coin/network?
A: Collected funds are being focused on several things, primarily building partnerships with large players in the crypto space (I mean companies, not whales). We're also going to be spending some of the collection on bounties, although not all of it as we do have a small amount of Syscoin for bounties as well. Then of course, future development; we're already trying to push additional features (2) into the coin prior to launch, on top of the 4 that are already completed. Outside of that we will hold much of the BTC for ongoing costs that we can't currently predict. We already have some deals in place that look to exercise the BTC we're collecting and the deals we're working on aren't cheap, but will ultimately take Syscoin to the next level. That being said nothing can be "guaranteed to increase value" in crypto as its a highly experimental field and as such we make no such claims.

Q: along those lines, are smart-contracts/prediction markets/futures/options things you plan to implement, or can see being (fairly quickly) implementable into this framework?
A: Some aspects of what you're calling out could be implemented in Syscoin fairly quickly but we have other roadmap plans that supersede them in priority at the moment. Additionally we need to discuss our roadmap after escrow and reputation systems. Once we get past that feature set it seems like there isn't a strong call for one thing or another just yet so we we're going to focus on smart-contracts within Syscoin but things like prediction markets, futures and options are on the roadmap at the moment; doesn't mean they can't be added. Keep in mind the target demographic here is large financial markets, services and systems so we will be prioritizing features in that vein of development.

Q: What do you consider the three biggest uncertainties regarding development implementation (either with core or future-beyond-core features)?
A: How can we implement a fully automated escrow (we're working on an agent-based escrow currently)? How can we implement smart contracts as is commonly understood in crypto on top of the Syscoin Certificates foundational structure? Which features will be the most heavily leveraged after launch and how will that possibly change the roadmap? ie: what if data storage is a the huge feature everyone uses instead of market or certificates? How would that change our strategy/would it?

Block reward (updated): 128 SysCoin and regenerated network services fees (block reward decays on fixed schedule until rewards fixate at 32 Syscoin until 2bil coin, after which rewards are purely network and service fees).
Total SysCoins: 2,000,000,000 (2.0 billion)
Premine: 18% [15% Presale, 2% Devs (wallets will be publicized for transparency; Prove are holding.), 1% Bounties and Rewards]
Launch date: August 16, 2014 @ 12pm PST


Syscoin - A Scrypt-based, Merge-mineable coin with Certificate Issuance, Distributed Marketplace, Document Exchange, and Data Storage Services

Specifications:



Service Fees:

Fees are an important part of the Syscoin network since they enable the existence of Syscoin and all of it's innovative services.
Syscoin directly recycles transaction fees by regenerating them and redistributing them to network miners. The regeneration of service fees is the key incentive for miners to continue to mine Syscoin once all base coins are mined, and thus enable and guarantee its services into the future.

Development Team and Status:



Syscoin's team is not new to the industry, they bring the experience of an award-winning team to drive this incredibly innovative project. The team wanted to be able to release ground-breaking technology without limiting itself to any one specific innovation. Hence, the name Syscoin was coined- it allows for the building of multiple value-added and innovative services without being constrained to a single innovation.

All Syscoin features described here have been implemented and the Syscoin wallet is currently in beta testing.

Whitepapers:


How Syscoin Works:
Syscoin Preann Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Q: Where is the whitepaper?
A: Syscoin Overview Whitepaper (Draft)

Q:Isn't this the same thing as NXT?
A: No, NXT is an attempt at a Bitcoin rewrite from scratch and is NOT hosted on github for community contribution. Syscoin is on github and is a fork of the Bitcoin codebase.

Q:Isn't this the same thing as BitHalo?
A: Feature-wise there are parallels (smart contracts) but Syscoin takes its feature set further from what we know of BitHalo. Reading what's available about BitHalo it is a an abstraction on top of a blockchain, rather than being directly integrated. We need to do more research on this as its very new and the source code isn't available yet (that I know of) so we're operating largely off press-release/marketing information when it comes to technical comparisons to BitHalo.

Q: When is presale starting?
A: It's already begun! The Syscoin presale started July 19th @ 12pm PST/USA.

Q: When is the launch date?
A: Syscoin's core feature set is already completed, it will on August 16th at 12:00pm PST

Q: How much will Syscoin be available for presale?
A: 300,000,000 Syscoin (15%)

Q: How will the presale proceeds be spent?
A: It will be used to further adoption of Syscoin within the altcoin space, to build relations with other partners in the crypto/altcoin space, marketing and to cover past and future development and hosting costs for Syscoin related sites and services.

Q: Can I see a video of the coin in action?
A: Yes. We're working on delivering this prior to the presale. We'll also try to release a beta prior to the coin launching.

Q: Can you allow us to test the coin on a test-net?
A: This is entirely possible but due to the logistical overhead of distributing a testnet-only client and then managing the feedback that comes from the release, we will not be pursuing this option. Instead we'll explore possibly doing a beta release before the coin launches to test the network at a larger scale.

Q: How many people on the team? Who are you?
A: We have six people on the Syscoin team. We're an experienced team that has received rewards in the past for our work on other coins within the crypto community. We've taken that experience and decided to channel it into something real and innovative rather than another clone coin.

Q: Where's the infographics?
A: We have a graphic outlining the features in a psuedo-technical form here,
we're working on a more robust infographic which we'll release soon.

Q: Isn't SCRYPT dead? Why another SCRYPT coin?
A: Scrypt is alive and well! The large driver for non-scrypt algorithms (x11, x13, x15, x[n]) is to try and combat ASICs since these hit the market just a few months ago. Because Syscoin uses block-by-block retargeting and can be merge-mined the proliferation of Scrypt ASICs are a good thing for Syscoin. This means that Scrypt mining is here to stay and the network will be healthy for a very long time.

Q: Will you have an escrow service for presale? A:Yes, one of the most trusted tiers in the Altcoin community, Moolah.io, has begun taking orders for the presale.

Q: Can I send any file on the blockchain using Syscoin?
A: Yep. Each entry is currently limited to 0.5mb so you'd need to spread out larger files across several entries (like a multipart zip file) and of course fees will apply the more data you store, the more it will cost (unlike Namecoin these fees go to miners instead of being burned).

Q: Could a 51% attack result in a certificate / asset double-spend?
A: Technically, yes. We are looking at Slingshield to try and mitigate the possibility of this type of attack although it will not be implemented at launch, and we may improve upon it if we see the potential for enhancement. Merged-mining with any other Scrypt coin, however, ensures that the hash-rate will be widely spread-out between many pools so we doubt that this will be a problem, in the long-run at least.

Q: How far is development?
A: Development on the core feature set is complete and we're debugging. We are testing to make sure all attack vectors are secured and retargeting is solid even with wild swings in network hashing power.

Q: Isn't the presale a little large?
A: We have spent significant time and effort developing Syscoin. There will be significant time poured into Syscoin moving forward as the community realizes the potential Syscoin brings to the table. Because of these factors, the partnerships we're building in the crypto community, and the innovation Syscoin brings to the table we feel the presale if very fair.

Q: Wont this turn into a silk road?
A: We are only offering the technology to facilitate distributed marketplaces. We aren't responsible for how it is leveraged.

Q: Why doesn't it show the coin dev on the website?
A: Our core crypto developer is very active but also holds a high level position within a private company outside of the crypto space that doesn't understand the crypto space. Because there is a concern of misperceptions by the employer regarding work-focus being in such a executive position, public references to our coin developer's personal information have been omitted until this is no longer a concern.

FAQ Last updated: 7/19/2014



8/5/2014:
Important Announcement about initial Syscoin Service Fees

In order to be as transparent as possible and to make clear this decision is a strategic one; we want to clarify some information about the “service fees” tied to Syscoin services. There is nothing like Syscoin currently on the market. Its closest competitors dramatically under-price their service offerings (speaking specifically about Namecoin). Due to the fact there are no analogous services in the “real world” by which to attempt to price Syscoin services. As such we will be following an initial pricing strategy that attempts some level of “price discovery”.

What this means is that we don’t know how much posting an offer, reserving an alias, or storing data should cost. We do know that fees need to be high enough to add value / discourage abuse while not being prohibitively expensive. Because of this the initial service fee schedule for Syscoin services will be temporary. The prices for services will be on the high side to start and then decay on a fixed schedule until a predetermined block height at which we’ll release a new wallet that implements a more effective fee schedule based on the market activity we observe during the initial price discovery schedule period.

Properly pricing these services is difficult as the price of Syscoin will certainly fluctuate and we don’t want to undervalue or overvalue these services. We’re pricing services based on the pre-sale regular phase price (0.00000518) which is arguably low meaning this may overprice services if it's value increases, something we’ll just have to observe and another reason for the decay schedule. We’re planning on pricing the Syscoin services fees very competitively relative to the cost of the closest comparable service in the real world such as domain name for aliases, ecommerce/ebay for the marketplace features, dropbox/googledrive/others for data storage etc.- keeping in mind that Syscoin services are distributed and cryptographically provable which the services being compared to do not provide.

#SysCoin LAUNCHED (and hardforking)
« Reply #6 on: 17. August 2014., 21:25:55 »
No worries - I know of a Developer they took on a few days ago to help fix some mysterious problems... He is the real deal, massively experienced and I came to trust him. If *anyone* is able to make sense of this hugely complex endeavour... It's him! He did work on the merged mining and I expect Syscoin will contact him soon enough for the current problems, whatever they are  :)

For the record: the IPO BTC has been transferred BACK to Escrow for the time being!!

Here the most current BTT [ann]....

Update 8/16:

We are working on resolving this issue right now. Please wait. We have returned any BTC we recieved to Moolah for the time being - https://blockchain.info/tx/53b1c79d56a641ae2694d8858eb722339b8f492d12f5bb15e7de1b510e921300.

We are still gathering information on the issue it appears to be related to the regenerated mining fees. Please find me in IRC so I can communicate more effectively we are in the #syscoin channel.

A coordinated hardfork is coming to address this issue. This will take place in the next hours not days. We will communicate an exact time shortly.

    Service Fees:

    Utilizing Syscoin services (aliases, offers, data, certs) costs a certain amount of SYS depending on the transaction and the transaction size. Because there is nothing truly analogous to Syscoin on the market we're launching an with initial 90 day "price discovery" service fee schedule which allows for some price growth while decreasing cost of services over time. We'll observe the activity in this window and release a new wallet within 90days implementing a dynamic fee system- This will be a mandatory update.

    Whitepapers:
     

    How Syscoin Works:
    General info:
     
    Innovation at it's best, Syscoin isn't just another crypto currency- it is also a value-added service and financial infrastructure integrated directly into its blockchain - something like this has never been done before! Syscoin is a crypto-currency and a financial infrastructure all in one!
     
    Syscoin implements a distributed marketplace integrated directly into the blockchain and more! This provides huge benefits to businesses or individuals looking to secure their data or marketplace in a decentralized manner that can never be "taken down" by having a single point of failure- the network makes this impossible. Now businesses can use Syscoin's incorruptible network to ensure the security of their sensitive data even if their redundancy systems fail - in the blockchain we trust!
     
    Syscoin ensures the health of it's network with the ability to be merge-mined with any other SCRYPT coin. Syscoin provides a variety of useful decentralized, cryptographically-secured services based on Bitcoin's Blockchain technology:

     


    • Business on the Blockchain. Buy and sell anything with Syscoin's distributed marketplace integrated into the blockchain.
      This isn't a cryptocurrency PLUS a marketplace. It's a marketplace built into a cryptocurrency. The Syscoin network enables the creation of marketplaces of any kind, ranging from small community trading platforms to large corporate marketplaces like eBay to fully encrypted hidden marketplaces. This does not limit itself to marketplaces that accept only Syscoin. Syscoin's blockchain innovations are merely an infrastructure upon which marketplaces can be built.

       
    • Brokerage on the Blockchain. Exchange discrete data directly on the Blockchain. Documents like deeds, wills, trusts, stocks, bonds and contracts can now be created, mutually agreed upon, and transferred without the necessity of a third-party to authenticate the transaction; the Syscoin network itself acts as the third party, guaranteeing cryptographically-verifiable authenticity. Syscoin provides a foundation for the creation of provably fair arbitration systems which cannot be corrupted.
       
    • Certificates on the Blockchain (demo
      video
      ).
      Using the cryptography of the Blockchain; Issue, authorize, and exchange digital certificates. With Syscoin, anyone can register as a certificate issuer and issue provably-unique certificates which can be authenticated by anyone using Syscoin's cryptographic proof of work. This allows for the creation and free exchange of a any kind of digital asset such as stocks, bonds, ownership certificates, warranties, receipts, tickets, certifications, diplomas, software licenses.

       
    • Miners Matter! By being universally merge-mineable with all Scrypt coins, Syscoin is prepared for the coming Scrypt ASIC boom. By simultaneously distributing coins to anyone mining any other Scrypt coin, it ensures that both democratic coin distribution and strong network health are achieved shortly after Syscoin's genesis.

    Syscoin Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
     
    Q: What's the difference between Sys and Ether?
    A: Syscoin is based on well known, peer reviewed codebases (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Namecoin) that have been combined and extended. Ethereum is an attempted rewrite of this in a sense to try and deliver a turing-complete smart contract solution. This is not the same as Syscoin. Additionally:
    • Sooner delivery of it's presale; Syscoin was delivered on August 16, 2014.
    • The amount of ether that will be mined every year is dependent on how many they sell during their presale. The more they sell the more that will be mined the year of release, giving a bigger dilution to the already mined/bought coins.
    • After Ether presale closes you have to wait till at least December/January to see anything; if at all.
    • Syscoin offered a 100% refund on failure to deliver of it's promised 5 core-features (escrow thru Moolah). The Ethereum team is allowed to use up to 5000btc before anything is even done properly or working and if it is a complete failure not a single refund was offered and no escrow option.

    Q: What's the difference between Sys and Cloakcoin?
    A: Please see this detailed comparison.
     
    Q: How can I buy/sell Syscoin?
    A: Syscoin can be traded directly on >> Moolah's trading platform. << (coming soon: Mintpal!) although any other exchange is welcome to trade Syscoin as well as long as they provide us with immediate contact details so we can update them with any technical details necessary.

    Q: How will I get my physical reward after purchasing presale coins?
    A: The Syscoin Team will have a portal up in the next few days where you can enter your presale purchase info and and ship-to address. Once verified you're reward will be shipped ASAP. We ship internationally.
     
    Q: What do you mean when you say Moolah will be the exclusive exchange? Will Syscoin not be on other exchanges?
    A: We have a partnership with Moolah and we are coordinating with them to get Syscoin on all of their platforms [including their exchange] at launch as part of this partnership. This doesn't mean other exchanges can't add us. We're just working directly with Moolah in a much larger sense to try to make Syscoin's capabilities more accessible to the masses so their's will be the first exchange we are listed on.
     
    Q: I didn't send enough BTC for my presale purchase because I forgot the network fee! What do I do?
    A: Simply "top up" the address you sent the initial payment to, within 6hrs you'll get a confirmation that you're top-up was successfully registered and presale purchase is complete.
     
    Q: How long have you been working on this project? And could you briefly describe your planned time commitment to this going forward?
    A: 8+ months, time commitment moving forward is as much time as we have outside of our normal day-job/lives and we are also on-boarding additional developers to supplement that capacity if/when needed.
     
    Q: How does the coin production/distribution setup provide insulation from the risk of massive miner/whale dumps? Is there an estimate out there of the max # of daily BTC trading volume that might be needed to absorb mined coins?
    A: If you check out the schedule here I think the values at the far right speak for themselves. Also keep in mind there is a 25btc limit per buyer in an attempt to insulate from an over-concentration of wealth leading to "massive dumps"
     

     
    Q: What immediate plans do you have beyond delivery of these core guaranteed features to further increase the value of the coin/network?
    A: Collected funds are being focused on several things, primarily building partnerships with large players in the crypto space (I mean companies, not whales). We're also going to be spending some of the collection on bounties, although not all of it as we do have a small amount of Syscoin for bounties as well. Then of course, future development; we're already trying to push additional features (2) into the coin prior to launch, on top of the 4 that are already completed. Outside of that we will hold much of the BTC for ongoing costs that we can't currently predict. We already have some deals in place that look to exercise the BTC we're collecting and the deals we're working on aren't cheap, but will ultimately take Syscoin to the next level. That being said nothing can be "guaranteed to increase value" in crypto as its a highly experimental field and as such we make no such claims.
     
    Q: Along those lines, are smart-contracts/prediction markets/futures/options things you plan to implement, or can see being (fairly quickly) implementable into this framework?
    A: Some aspects of what you're calling out could be implemented in Syscoin fairly quickly but we have other roadmap plans that supersede them in priority at the moment. Additionally we need to discuss our roadmap after escrow and reputation systems. Once we get past that feature set it seems like there isn't a strong call for one thing or another just yet so we we're going to focus on smart-contracts within Syscoin but things like prediction markets, futures and options are on the roadmap at the moment; doesn't mean they can't be added. Keep in mind the target demographic here is large financial markets, services and systems so we will be prioritizing features in that vein of development.
     
    Q: What do you consider the three biggest uncertainties regarding development implementation (either with core or future-beyond-core features)?
    A: How can we implement a fully automated escrow (we're working on an agent-based escrow currently)? How can we implement smart contracts as is commonly understood in crypto on top of the Syscoin Certificates foundational structure? Which features will be the most heavily leveraged and how will that possibly change the roadmap? ie: what if data storage is a the huge feature everyone uses instead of market or certificates? How would that change our strategy/would it?

    Syscoin Preann Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
     
    Q: Where is the whitepaper?
    A: Syscoin Overview Whitepaper (Draft)
     
    Q:Isn't this the same thing as NXT?
    A: No, NXT is an attempt at a Bitcoin rewrite from scratch and is NOT hosted on github for community contribution. Syscoin is on github and is a fork of the Bitcoin codebase.
     
    Q:Isn't this the same thing as BitHalo?
    A: Feature-wise there are parallels (smart contracts) but Syscoin takes its feature set further from what we know of BitHalo. Reading what's available about BitHalo it is a an abstraction on top of a blockchain, rather than being directly integrated. We need to do more research on this as its very new and the source code isn't available yet (that I know of) so we're operating largely off press-release/marketing information when it comes to technical comparisons to BitHalo.
     
    Q: When is the presale?
    A: The presale ended on August 16th, 2014. You can now purchase Syscoin directly at Mintpal for SYS/Fiat on Moolah's Trade.moolah.io
     
    Q: When is the launch date?
    A: The soft launch began on August 16th at 12:00pm PST
     
    Q: How will the presale proceeds be spent?
    A: It will be used to further adoption of Syscoin within the altcoin space, to build relations with other partners in the crypto/altcoin space, marketing and to cover past and future development and hosting costs for Syscoin related sites and services.
     
    Q: Can I see a video of the coin in action?
    A: Yes. Here it is! [INSERT VIDEO LINK]
     
    Q: How many people are on the team? Who are you?
    A: We have six people on the Syscoin team. We're an experienced team that has received rewards in the past for our work on other coins within the crypto community. We've taken that experience and decided to channel it into something real and innovative rather than another clone coin.
     
    Q: Where's the infographics?
    A: We have a graphic outlining the features in a psuedo-technical form here,
    we're working on a more robust infographic which we'll release soon.
     
    Q: Isn't SCRYPT dead? Why another SCRYPT coin?
    A: Scrypt is alive and well! The large driver for non-scrypt algorithms (x11, x13, x15, x[n]) is to try and combat ASICs since these hit the market just a few months ago. Because Syscoin uses block-by-block retargeting and can be merge-mined the proliferation of Scrypt ASICs are a good thing for Syscoin. This means that Scrypt mining is here to stay and the network will be healthy for a very long time.
     
    Q: Can I send any file on the blockchain using Syscoin?
    A: Yep. Each entry is currently limited to 0.5mb so you'd need to spread out larger files across several entries (like a multipart zip file) and of course fees will apply the more data you store, the more it will cost (unlike Namecoin these fees go to miners instead of being burned).
     
    Q: Could a 51% attack result in a certificate / asset double-spend?
    A: Technically, yes. We are looking at Slingshield to try and mitigate the possibility of this type of attack although it will not be implemented at launch, and we may improve upon it if we see the potential for enhancement. Merged-mining with any other Scrypt coin, however, ensures that the hash-rate will be widely spread-out between many pools so we doubt that this will be a problem, in the long-run at least.
     
    Q: How far is development?
    A: Development on the core feature set is complete. We are constantly looking for new ways to innovate and have many ideas for future development.
     
    Q: Wont this turn into a silk road?
    A: We are only offering the technology to facilitate distributed marketplaces. We aren't responsible for how it is leveraged.
     
    Q: Why doesn't it show the coin dev on the website?
    A: Our core crypto developer is very active but also holds a high level position within a private company outside of the crypto space that doesn't understand the crypto space. Because there is a concern of misconceptions by the employer regarding work-focus being in such a executive position, public references to our coin developer's personal information have been omitted until this is no longer a concern.

    8/5/2014:
    Important Announcement about initial Syscoin Service Fees

    In order to be as transparent as possible and to make clear this decision is a strategic one; we want to clarify some information about the “service fees” tied to Syscoin services. There is nothing like Syscoin currently on the market. Its closest competitors dramatically under-price their service offerings (speaking specifically about Namecoin). Due to the fact there are no analogous services in the “real world” by which to attempt to price Syscoin services. As such we will be following an initial pricing strategy that attempts some level of “price discovery”.
     
    What this means is that we don’t know how much posting an offer, reserving an alias, or storing data should cost. We do know that fees need to be high enough to add value / discourage abuse while not being prohibitively expensive. Because of this the initial service fee schedule for Syscoin services will be temporary. The prices for services will be on the high side to start and then decay on a fixed schedule until a predetermined block height at which we’ll release a new wallet that implements a more effective fee schedule based on the market activity we observe during the initial price discovery schedule period.
     
    Properly pricing these services is difficult as the price of Syscoin will certainly fluctuate and we don’t want to undervalue or overvalue these services. We’re pricing services based on the pre-sale regular phase price (0.00000518) which is arguably low meaning this may overprice services if it's value increases, something we’ll just have to observe and another reason for the decay schedule. We’re planning on pricing the Syscoin services fees very competitively relative to the cost of the closest comparable service in the real world such as domain name for aliases, ecommerce/ebay for the marketplace features, dropbox/googledrive/others for data storage etc.- keeping in mind that Syscoin services are distributed and cryptographically provable which the services being compared to do not provide.




    Moolah Partnership

    The Syscoin Team is pleased to announce that we've officially partnered with Moolah (Moopay LTD) (http://moolah.io). Moolah has secured the Syscoin presale via their escrow platform. We have a dedicated partnership in place so there will be a custom portal specifically for Syscoin presale investors to reserve their coins. Moolah has assist in distributing the Syscoin to investors via wallet.dat or pub/priv keys that can be imported directly into your Syscoin wallet.
     
    This partnership goes beyond just the presale and launch of Syscoin. Moolah offers a host of crypto related services to the global marketplace, they are not just limited to US customers. They have a trading platform, a merchant platform, and an escrow platform already in place and are in the process of building numerous other services for the crypto space. They have never once been hacked. This is a strategic partnership not only to provide a secure escrow platform for presale investors but also to allow for long term growth of Syscoin via an immediate ecosystem of services enabled by Moolah. Moolah is currently in the process of transitioning all of their core services to their V2 platform for assured reliability- Syscoin will be available through these services. Moolah's V2 trading platform as well as their recently acquired Mintpal, will also be the first exchanges to offer Syscoin.
     
    There are natural intersections between the services Syscoin offers and the platform capabilities Moolah can directly implement on top those distributed services. We look forward to exploring these possibilities with the Moolah team. Together we could bring the first decentralized large-scale marketplaces, digital certificates, datastore, and other such services to the mainstream market. We're excited to announce this partnership and move forward with such a well known pillar of the crypto community![/list][/list][/list]
