How do you upgrade to the latest ProtoShares client?  Will the Wallet balance switch over automatically?

Yes Zefo

So just download it and run the exe file?  Simple as that?

yes simple as that

Thanks!

If you have any reasons why we shouldn't fork and would like to object you have about 2 hours to do so.


You must be kidding. You're trying to establish a serious business, and you give your loyal early adopters TWO HOURS before a hard fork????

There's already an active exchange! Have you given the slightest thought what happens there when people on different blockchain versions send or withdraw their PTS there?

I had high hopes for this coin. What you're showing here is a complete management failure, IMO. Good luck with that.

A couple simple questions....

First... I saw someone refer to pool mining.... How are you pool mining?  I downloaded QT and assumed I was solo mining.  Where are PTS poolminers and who has pool mining up and running.

Second... Whena and where wiil PTS shares be traded?

Third.. You are already increasing the difficulty ..... I have been mining with 3-4 PC's 2-7 threads for over 5 days and I am finding almost no blocks for last 3 days.  If you want to keep small miners, you need to be careful.  Someone has a large block of mining power and is producing almost all the coins.  Regardless.... mining for 3 days with no blocks and now increasing difficulty and now pool mining without notifying how to pool mine?  I am thinking PTS is becoming a 'scam' coin!

there are 3 pools - it's up to you to use them

also, it's only natural for the hashrate to grow.

network hash is 822k, the orphans were masking like 10x and we still have 40s blocks.........

Seems to be slowing down - looks like some hashing power has left. Are all the pools still up?

No release notes and no version number change? cmon...

I noticed Getmininginfo does not list hashespermin anymore, it now shows collisionspermin instead.
What else has changed?

Yep it was a rushed job... we are in the process of putting together a rollout checklist and testing procedures so we don't have to fly by the seat of our pants in the future.   With blocks flying every 20 seconds we had to act fast.

How can we as a community help?  Do you have a list of people to test new builds?  You have a lot of support here, don't be afraid to ask in these situations.

Added the downloads to a bittorrentsync share, if the download links not working and you have bittorrentsync:

I'll try to keep it up to date with the latest versions as well.
