  • Stonehedge @everyone Hi ladies and gents. I just wanted to give a quick update. My proposal is currently at 331 yes votes and 215 no votes. As of this morning, my backers have not voted yet. As mentioned before, I consider this to be an overwhelming vote for change rather than a ringing endorsement for the details of my proposal. In fact, one thing that is interesting is that more people have voted than have read the actual proposal document. In any case, 215 no votes and the risk of losing the support of long time Crown Contributors who I respect is not acceptable to me. I can't do this alone and I need their support. For this reason, I have been working with my guys to come up with a more stage managed plan that retains MNPoS, at least for such time that the Crown community decides to replace it. I was hoping to have this ready by now and it is close to completion however unfortunately the developer who has been focusing on this has been taken sick and has been in hospital over the weekend. I am hopeful that he will be back to work within a matter of days but I hope you understand that I have a duty to support him in giving him as much time to return to work as he needs. The steps of my plan are decided, what is missing is timescales and deadlines. If I can't give a positive update before Friday morning , I'll publish a medium post with my new plan just without a timeline and begin to arrange for an alternative developer to take over. As always, please do ask any questions in this channel or by DM. Dan
  • Lezlaig Given the division and the whales on both sides, it was always going to be a large minority on whichever was the smaller side. I'd say a decent majority in favour is still a pretty significant endorsement. Yes, right to explore options that are a closer compromise, but not so far that it renders the whole thing pointless. If two captains are arguing about flying the low-in-fuel plane to different airports and one is in the majority, the solution isn't too aim for a field between the two airports. Even if you manage to land in the field, good luck taking off again. I've strained the first metaphor that I've thought of, as usual, but essentially what I'm saying is that it's important to take both captains' views into account and not dismiss the reasons, but essentially it sounds like one of those airports is the majority choice and it sounds like the one to aim for, otherwise we might as well not have voting anyway.
  • walkjivefly Why not just go with BTC 0.21/0.22 codebase plus MNPoS plus DMNs plus NFTs - pretty much what "we" were expecting when we first handed over the reins? Make it Elements if you like, keep or bin SNs, tweak the MN collateral size as appropriate. The result would be recognisably Crown, with not just a facelift but worthwhile technical upgrades. Did you manage to sync past the tricky block yet?
  • Stonehedge I've been discussing these options with the CRW team and community for 3 to 7 months, depending on the individuals. I'm just trying to see if I can make any of the red lines that people objected to work. Or at least give the Crown community more time to make their own minds up about the viability of things such as MNPoS. For example, keep MNPoS for the forseeable future but run benchmarks and security reviews to prove or disprove whether it is capable of scaling with Crown into the future. 543 masternodes voted on my proposal. 40% of those masternodes opposed my plans. That is way too high a figure of objections, especially considering that prominent members of the CRW community and team have expressed their lack of support and declared that they would not support my technical path even if it passes the DAO.
  • Stonehedge Sorry for the delay everybody. Just spending a bit more time digging down into MNPoS to figure out a way forward with more support.
  • defunctec-confirm You need collateral of 500 or 10,000 Crown to host a masternode and thus stake.
  • defunctec-confirm There is no mining on Crown, only a form of proof of stake called MNPOS (masternode proof of stake)
  • strago Can anyone tell me where i can a minning pools for this coin
  • walkjivefly https://monitor.crownplatform.com/ has gone off-piste. Will be back soon.
