3DCoin 3DC Project Districts a VR-AR-3D dapps project with over 3000 masternodes enabled!
Hello, 3DCoin Project Districts has exceeded the threshold of 3000 masternodes enabled right these days (over 3060 today) about 8 months from the genesis block, the project is not yet in exchange but the announcement is expected for December. I wrote this article to present the project from the community point of view (I am a voluntary community manager and a big enthusiast, not a team member!). This is an unofficial post!
It is a very particular project and by number of currently enabled masternodes it is practically in the top 10 of the sector.
Sorry for the length, but I tried to put everything I could, in any case for those who do not want to read so much there are spectacular videos in the article that deserve at least to be seen once...
Here is the article... enjoy and have fun!
Thx for posting! Quick Q: how come there is so many nodes if the coin is not on exchange yet? Was there a preliminary PoW and/or airdrop? How did the distribution happen?
Thank you for the space you put at everyone's disposal!
The project did a normal ICO (see Icobench link below) between November 2017 and January 2018 that sold about 47 million of 3DCoin at a rate of 40,000 3DC for 1 Bitcoin (on average the coins cost about 25 cents of dollar based on the average prices of BTC of that period) and anyone could access since the minimum purchase was 40 coins whose total cost was about 10 dollars, so a normal ICO, not an "initial sale of masternodes", the team has never sold complete masternodes. After the coinburn of the unsold 3dcoins, the expected final supply is about 85 million of 3dcoins (between sold in ICO and mined thereafter for some next years). The coins were released at the end of March after ICO's end and then the POW started and also the masternodes (masternodes started in april 2018 if I remember correctly) so apart from the sold in ICO there is a part that is mined, there was also some small promotional airdrop in more recent times but not relevant were small sums. The team's coins are also blocked for five years, in any case more details about the ICO results and the locked coins are available in the Medium link below:
If I can I recommend you to see this video because even for those who will never be interested in the project is really a look at the future, you see something they have already ready, that is a virtual reality purchase system through its own wallet, really incredible what they are achieving!
One thing I forgot to mention but very particular and very community oriented that they did in the first months was to allow for only several months (at least 3 or 4 months after the ICO) the "solo mining" with normal CPU, it really seemed to be back to the Bitcoin origins with 3DCoin so most of the users that followed Project Districts 3DCoin could simply install the wallet and start the mining (even with laptops! I mean it!) and then in fact many users managed to accumulate the coins for collateral simply mining with normal home computers, it was a very special and unusual experience for our times, then it ended naturally could not last forever now it is a few months that began mining with gpu nvidia rigs, so the field of "serious" miners, but what I can say is that we have managed as a community to "welcome" in the best way the professional miners to involve them in the passion for our project and make them become so they started mining not only to sell mined coins in OTC market (and later when we will go in exchange) but also to create some collaterals and stay with us in the project when the mining will end (because it is expected that it will not last long because we should migrate to a consensus managed entirely by the nodes as explained in my article and in the whitepaper). But "solo CPU mining" certainly remains an unforgettable and unusual experience in 2018 to remember...
Now from today 3Dcoin 3DC Project Districts is live in exchange (p2pb2b exchange) and is a Premium Backer on Masternode.buzz
An excellent presentation of the project by Masternode.buzz
And from now 3DC is also on Blockfolio app but you must select in the app settings the only exchange in which we are now (p2pb2b) to get the correct data tracking of the right 3DCoin 3DC!
A new important 3DC development update published in the past days:
Mandatory update and related guide (only for masternodes) published in our official forum today:
New important development update today:
Mandatory QT core wallet update (pc / mac)
For those who need a clean / fresh wallet installation guide (with backup restore of course) here is the full guide:
On the VPS side no manual intervention is required for the masternodes managers who have correctly installed the latest mandatory update script released between 3 and 4 February as explained here:
An interesting interview with our CEO just published by Masternode Buzz
Great news today for 3DCoin Project Districts 3DC !!!
This project is constantly evolving and the team is constantly updating! Great!
Official support in our Telegram Official Group:
Additional info for 3DC masternodes owners/managers:
All the masternodes that already have on board (in the VPS) the mandatory autoupdate script released at the beginning of February (3 February) will self-update within 24 hours in random time without the need for user intervention (on the VPS side of course) except for rare cases (a percentage of error, of autoudpdate failed, of VPS that are blocked is physiological, generally the success is almost equal to 100% for previous recent updates).
Instead the user intervention is required in the computer control wallet, so as soon as the new wallet is released (QT pre-compiled not yet available) ie the v0.14.4.1 version it will be necessary to start again masternodes from control wallet as the protocol passes from 70216 to 70217. It is always normal when a protocol change occurs, normal administration.
So to simplify:
- On the VPS side, no intervention was required to those who made the mandatory update released on February 3 (autoupdate script) because in 24 hours the VPS will be automatically updated by the script
- On the computer side it will be necessary to give a new start as soon as the new QT pre-compiled wallet is available.
Before giving a new start it is important to make sure that the VPS has updated itself to new version and to new protocol verifying the version following the guide already published in our official forum 3DCoinTalk! in the past days:
New PROTOCOL released and NEW MANDATORY update released for WALLET
From yesterday March 14, 2019, with the fork occurring at block 475000 (about at 17,00 CET Time), almost a year after its genesis block, 3DCoin Project Districts 3DC blockchain is the first project in the world to manage consensus directly and only with their masternodes. Nothing pow, nothing pos, but only masternodes. After the introduction of masternodes technology by Dash we are now witnessing a further step forward of the masternodes technology with a new block creation system managed directly by hashing functions performed by the over 3300 masternodes of the 3DCoin network.
A significant step forward not only for the masternode sector but we hope for the whole crypto world!
Our masternodes network continues to grow without stopping despite the continuous updates that could have undermined the stability of our masternodes and thanks to the commitment of the team and the community we have over 3600 nodes in enabled status, as visible in the 3dcoin.io site statistics or in the 3DCoin QT Core wallet info tab.
In the meantime a new wallet update has been released, all the masternodes have already self-updated but obviously the pc/mac core QT wallet needs to be updated manually.
NEW MANDATORY WALLET RELEASE 3DCoin Core QT v0.14.4.2
Please update your computer wallet before the block 485k
