Current projects, needs and discussions

Here are the current points where developers (or anyone else) can contribute or discuss.

  • Discussion about proof of work improvements and a more dynamic difficulty adjustment algorithm:
    • Basically, the main idea is to replace the current 6-tuple pattern by something that would allow bigger or more diverse patterns. Indeed, with the current choice will never allow blocks to be a part of a 7-tuple or more, which is really a shame and defeat a lot of the Riecoin’s purpose;
    • Some are suggesting to improve the difficulty adjustment algorithm and make it much more dynamic and make the network more robust;
    • Both would need a hard fork, so we must discuss seriously about this and make solid and durable implementations.
  • Help us bring down the wallet’s issues count to zero;
    • One that should be fixed soon is to make wallet compilation trivial in Debian 9+, without having to use an outdated Libssl that is no longer in the recent Linuxes repositories. Clo1 was able to replace Libssl entirely by GMP, but we still need help for the build system before we can make this code official;
  • Exchange Listings: right now Riecoin is basically only listed in Zapple, a young exchange with very low volume, even if they have ambitious projects. We need to list Riecoin somewhere else, and preferably in high volume exchange, in order to make mining very profitable again and stabilize the price thanks to liquidity. In order to do this, financial support in order to pay the listing fees are also welcome! ;
  • Create more Riecoin related software (Android/thin wallets, Riecoin plugins,…);
  • Upgrade Riecoin Core code to 0.18+: we did a great job updating the very outdated wallet from 0.10.2 to 0.16.3. But developing is a very dynamic world, especially in the cryptosphere! Riecoin shall never be outdated again and newest features should be integrated to the Riecoin project regularly enough;
  • Spread the Riecoin usage and awareness: we will be honest, there is no actual use of Riecoin currently. Help us finding new uses for Riecoin or convincing services providers or stores to accept Riecoin as payment. Spread the word to your geek and non-geek friends!;
  • Star our GitHub repositories if you like the project;
  • Any useful idea to improve Riecoin in any way is welcome!
