I was wondering what was happening with Piggy Coin.  I followed closely when the original was just starting.  Glad to see you guys picked it back up. I think teaching kids cryptocurrency is a positive step forward for all crypto-enthusiasts and believers.

Now offering a 300,000 PIGGY bounty for a trusted crypto-community member to compile the newest desktop piggybank (wallet) for the Mac.  That's v1.2.2.0 'Operation Sever-Chain'.  You'd better check with us first, of course.

Premine

Premine status: 4,688,000 (of 5,000,000) PIGGY still remaining.

MystPhysX requested an alternative reward instead of his bounty.  This request was granted and so the premine remains unchanged.

Unswapped

The PiggyTeam is holding ~27,000,000 PIGGY in reserve for owners of PIG (Old PoW PiggyCoin) to claim.  We call these the 'unswapped coins'.  If you are a PIG holder and wish to claim your share of these, sign a message in your PIG wallet (File / Sign Message...) using each address that contains any PIG.  The message should say:

Quote
I, <social media name> on <bitcointalk, reddit, or whatever>, writing this on <date, 2015> wish to claim New PiggyCoin in exchange for these Old PiggyCoin.  Please send the PIGGY to the address <Your New PiggyCoin address beginning with 'p'>.  Thanks neurocis!

Send these messages and signatures (i.e. the text of each message AND each signature), carefully labelling the PIG address from which they came, to [email protected]

It has been over a year since New PiggyCoin's beginning, so the swap opportunity has gone on for far longer than planned.  While we are glad to have new PIGGY users from people who swap their PIG, going forwards we'd rather have neurocis concentrating on development.

For this and other reasons, the opportunity to swap coins will finish 3 weeks from now, on 12th July 2015.

Future use of the unclaimed unswapped coins

In related news, we PiggyTeam would like to claim those unswapped coins for future development, with the community's permission.

I believe that most people want services around the coin -- open-source web and mobile PiggyBanks, tipbots, teaching materials, tutorial videos, ongoing translations of everything... -- so we need to pay people or set bounties to make those things happen.  Perhaps when PiggyCoin's bigger, those things would be more likely to happen without this kind of financial inducement, but for now, we need to bootstrap the coin by developing the services around it.

The PiggyCoin desktop piggybanks do have multisignature capabilities built-in, though they're not user-friendly.  So we could give multisig keys to some portion of these coins to community members, with the corresponding multisig keys in the PiggyTeam's hands, so that we could not move them without community members' permission.  Then they should only release the next portion of the coins if the previous portion has been spent and accounted-for satisfactorily.

The alternative to this plan, is of course, to destroy the coins by sending them to an unrecoverable address (pTheresNoChanceWeHaveThePrivateKeyForThis...).

How can you, the PiggyCoin holder, indicate your preference?  Well, you can tell us here, or by PM, by e-mail, whatever.  It doesn't seem practical to vote on this using wallet signatures as some people have their piggycoins in multiple addresses, but you can do that if you want -- Sign a message telling us your preference.  (Of course, the views of big holders of PiggyCoin should have more weight, especially as it's not practical to sell all those coins right now.)

Oink!
Mo

The PiggyCoin Foundation Coins

The PiggyTeam is still holding 1,500,000 PIGGY that was collected for the charity 88bikes.  It now seems that there may be sufficient liquidity to sell these, to donate the proceeds to the charity, as should have been done long ago.  We're selling them 500,000 at a time, in sell walls.


Dev work

Neurocis has been busy in his day job, but things are proceeding on PiggyCoin, a little slower than expected.  Now that the Reddit tipbot is fixed, neurocis is planning to review the Mac UI fixes that MystPhysX made and merge them into the main repository.

After that, he'll come to BitcoinTalk to comment on the multisig holding solution for the unswapped coins, then lay out a technical roadmap for the '2.0' features he has planned ;8]

EasySend, the online database of PiggyCoin addresses, is back online.  Not sure, but I think it might have been offline since we moved away from GoDaddy hosting.  Unfortunately the previous database entries have been lost, so you'll need to re-enter your info.

Neurocis (dev) has merged the Mac UI fixes made by MystPhysX into our main code repository ( https://github.com/piggycoin/newpiggycoin ) and uploaded new Mac and Windows binaries to our website: https://www.piggy-coin.com/getting-started/

So, the present version is now v1.2.2.1 'Hey Mac-arena'.

Aside from the Mac UI fixes and version number updates, the only thing that's changed is an additional checkpoint.  So, this is a completely optional upgrade from v1.2.2.0 'Operation Sever-Chain'.

If you are wondering why you haven't already received an update notification from your Desktop PiggyBank, it's because that's something that only happens when the program is restarted, or when you click on Help / Check for Updates.  Then you can choose to 'Ignore' the new update or download it as you wish.  ;)

    Copied from neurocis here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=633803.msg12066575#msg12066575

    ________________

    A post I think is long overdue from myself updating the community from a core perspective and the direction of PIGGY from a technical point of view.

    The window for the swapping of coins has now closed for close to one month and requests to swap have been few and far between so I think it safe to announce PIG to PIGGY swaps are now officially CLOSED. That does leave what to do with the remaining unswapped, which is still being held across the team members. In post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=633803.msg11694570#msg11694570 a multisig wallet was suggested for holding of team funds, which I agree is the best solution over current cold storage. MultiSig works in PIGGY presently but is not user friendly in the slightest, I hope to (somewhat) address that with this short "Technical Roadmap".

    This announcement will be spread over a few posts, each focusing on a particular deliverable on the roadmap, those being (in order of my priority):

    1. "EasySend" implementation - The intent of "EasySend" is to eliminate the need to remember cumbersome PIGGY addresses and instead provide some type of directory to lookup names to addresses in a trustless, decentralized manner. "EasySend" name registration is operational once again on the website but is centralized and not presently integrated into the wallet. This deliverable will take a phased approach taking cues from a number of other projects, those being dnkey, keybase and current methods used for the publishing of PGP keys via DNS. My vision is to be able to setup in-wallet various name-to-address providers (directories) with the actual lookup being via the internet DNS system. Details of the specific phases of implementation will be in a further post.

    2. MultiSig - This will also take on a phased approach. The largest hurdle in the implementation of multisig is the communication of the transaction between the parties which can legitimately sign it prior to it being submitted to the network for inclusion in a block. We have successfully tested multisig transactions using the console of the current wallet, but once again that is a cumbersome process. Initial proof-of concept will be by porting the coinb.in wallet to PIGGY making such transactions a bit more "friendly", but still not ideal. However this would be sufficient for the creation of a multisig wallet to hold team funds (after rigorous testing of course) with some added benefits of being an alternative web wallet and educationally giving a view "under the hood" for the more technically savvy. Once concept is proven porting of the co-pay and/or electrum would be the next phase of implementation. Vision being to first implement in a user-friendly web-wallet, then into the core wallet leveraging a bitcore-wallet service or electrum for inter-wallet communication of transactions awaiting signatures.

    3. Colored Coins - With the porting of Coinb.in comes the ability to experiment with OP_RETURN messages on the PIGGY blockchain. Utilizing OP_RETURN a simple system of coloring coins will be (actually has been) created and tested. To keep things simple, effective and easy to convey, so called "rainbow coins" will not be supported. Once a group of coins is colored they remain that color until "bleached" by being mixed with coins not of the same color (or technically Unspent Transaction Outputs). Once again more details in a further post.

    4. Hard Fork - May be needed as determined by discovery in the delivery of 1 through 3 together with bugfixes to improve the stability of the network. Ideally "easysend" name-address pairs would become encoded into the chain at this point.

    Please bear in mind some of these deliverables are quite ambitious and will take time. I have tried my best to find the path of least resistance without "re-inventing the wheel". The more talent we can attract to the team the better. I would especially welcome those with an analytical mind, a passion for blockchain-tech, who wish to learn along side our team while delivering these and other projects.

    More to come soon ...

    More discussion has taken place at bitcointalk.

    Things are progressing well on this and I will be pushing out Piggy-Coinb.in by the end of the month. It is also about 85% that I will also have transaction loading as well as submit to network working by that time. EasySend and MultiSig seem to be converging with one another when I look at speed-of-delivery as I can implement a javascript in-browser version hooked into coinbin and/or copay much faster than delivery in the wallet GUI.

    With the transaction loading in Piggy-Coinb.in I have ported most of BitPay's Insight block explorer, and with that comes PiggyCore. PiggyCore is a foundation block for delivering PiggyPay across all platforms, the port of copay for iOS, Android and Web. This will be a PiggyCoin exclusive as no other PoS coin presently has a functional bitcore (aka PiggyCore) to build features upon. There is lots of development happening on top of bitcore and the bitcore wallet service which would be opened up to PiggyCoin. Thats above and beyond having a best-in-class MultiSig wallet cross-platform.

    So approx. timeline:

    1. Piggy-Coinb.in - End of month.
    2. Piggy-Insight, Insight-API and PiggyCore - Mid Sept.
    3. EasySend Twitter and DNKey for Piggy-Coinb.in - Early Oct.
    4. PiggyCore Wallet Service and built on that PiggyPay MultiSig web wallet - Early Nov.

    Further timelines TBA.

    Note: With the PiggyCore Wallet Service the largest barrier to development of PIGGY-based games and apps is removed; Dear Team, lets get our gears turning on PiggyTasks!!
