Time just slipped right past us and now here in the northern hemisphere it is winter. Sorry not sorry for the lack of updates :-p . Just been busy with work and whatnot. But how are things in MOIN world? Let's take a look.
In September KingCaper relased the v126.96.36.199 update. It is a recommended update so if you are still on the older version consider this a reminder to go ahead and update your wallet. You can see the post on bitcointalk about the update by clicking here.
Happy Birthday MOIN!
Did you know Moin had its first birthday!!??!? Well it did! Happy birthday to MOIN! It has been over a year now since MOIN began its swap to the new chain. Check out KingCaper's update to the community about the year here. Long live MOIN!
The Network Chugs Along
The blockchain continutes to run smoothly. KingCaper recently dropped a fresh bootstrap to help people synch faster. The post with that is over here.
Stickers still plenty of 'em! Ideas for next project?
Just wanted to remind everyone that you can get pretty sweet MOIN stickers right here on this website and pay in MOIN. The stickers are 250 MOIN a piece and I'll ship them to you no matter where you are as long as it isn't some absurd expense. More info about that over on the Sticker Page . All MOIN collected goes to the Moin Foundation funnd. The fund is looking pretty nice at this point. If anyone has any ideas for other ways to raise MOIN for the foundation or even ways to use the MOIN we have raised give me a shout
We have a winner!
Ok the July raffle has come to an end. I want to thank all the participants and express a big congrats to the winner. The raffle raised a total of 20600 MOIN for the foundation. You can check out the details of the drawing over at the July 2016 raffle page.
AltSpaceVR MOIN Meetup. Receive 2000 MOIN For Participation!
Like the shoes say... Just do it. So it's time to announce location and time for the first public Moin Movement meeting. I didn't receive any feedback on what times would work for anyone so I figure I will just pick a time and see if anyone shows then continue from there.
The meeting will be this Sunday, July 17th @ 2PM GMT. Here is a countdown to the meeting to avoid time zone confusion.
We will create an AltspaceVR room for the meeting. The name for the room will be MOIN Movement Meeting. Check out their website @ http://altvr.com/ to learn about and download the software.

"Love life let it love you back" - Aceyealone
Heyo! Been a minute since I updated the webpage but I assure you it is not due to lack of things happening in the MOIN world. Here is an update on what has been going down.
Version 188.8.131.52 and POSv3
The switch to POSv3 has come and gone without much fanfare. It seems that everything is working really well. The rate of interest is now 10% which puts each reward right around 1.3 MOIN. Check out KingCaper's post on it @ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1237881.msg15067044#msg15067044
Proof Of Existence
King Caper, he is the MOIN developer for those that don't know, announce that he is working on a new feature for MOIN called proof of existence. What this allows a person to do is create a permanent record on the blockchain which can prove a certain document existed at a date in time. Check out his post which includes a short preview of the interface @ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1237881.msg15409059#msg15409059
MOIN was listed on a new exchange called livecoin.net . It is good when an altcoin gets listed on new exchanges because it exposes the coin to a new audience and can lead to arbitrage opportunities and higher liquidity within the altcoin market. People interested in trading MOIN on ANY exchange should remember to use caution and realize that there is always a risk involved with sending your coins to a wallet you do not own the private key for.
SSD Raffle #2
Time to get this second SSD raffled off. It is identical to the first one in stats. It is a Samsung 850 EVO 2.5" 250BG SATA 3 drive brand new in the box. Check out the newraffle page for information about that.
Moin Movement Meeting... MMMM
It would be great to get more people directly involved with Moin Movement. I would like to propose that we have a monthly Moin Movement Meeting where we can discuss ideas for projects and also just get to know each other as a community. I do not have a date in mind for the first meeting yet but my intention is to talk to some of the community members, get a time that at least some can attend, and then announce the official time. Will post again soon.
The MOIN swap has ended!
The MOIN swap has ended! Congratulations and thanks to KingCaper for working hard to keep everything so fair and well documented. In conjunction with the swap ended the remaining coins in the swapfund were burned. 3568555 coins were sent to an address for which no one holds the private key. The blockexplorer is updated to reflect the "true coin total".
There is some things coming up for MOIN. I will quote KingCaper from the bitcointalk thread
Obviously now that we've shed all that dead weight MOIN can become the crypto powerhouse it was always destined to be. The HD wallets / PoS v3 code is all done. I needed to wait for the exact total of burned coins as it'll be factored into the reward calculation - the 10% per annum will only be based upon the number of actually spendable MOIN in circulation. We'll do a quick round of testing during which our front-end dev will make any tweaks and fixes and then we'll release. PoS v3 will be activated via a hard fork that'll be scheduled for around the end of June in order to give everyone time to upgrade.
The winner has been contacted! Click here to check out the results
MOIN Listed on Cryptopia
MOIN has been listed on Cryptopia for trading! Check it out @ https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange/?market=MOIN_BTC
Today we see KingCaper getting a MOIN template onto Azure. This makes it extremely easy for people to spin up a MOIN node. Check it out @ https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates/pull/1490
We are also happy to announce the beginning of the HD raffle. Goto the Hard Drive Raffle page for more information.
Hello out there Moin friends. A few pieces of information about Moin to share today. First up is a post by Moin devloper KingCaper on bitcointalk reminding the community that the swap is winding down and that on March 7th 10% of the swap fund will be burned and the swap rate will be reduced to 1:9. Check out the post here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1237881.msg14047463#msg14047463
Added To Coin Gecko
Moin was added to Coingecko this week and so now you can get market information about moin at https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/moin . One cool thing about their site is they provide a widget for the coins listed there so now we can have that here in the footer. Bam! Kicked up a notch.
Moin Movement Twitter Created
I went ahead and created a twitter account for Moin Movement! That way I can post about this blog post on there and post about the tweets I do here in the blog. I think if everything is timed correctly space time might fold in on itself and we will be left with one very delicious treat. In case that doesn't happen though the twitter page will still be a good place to get Moin information. You can find it @ www.twitter.com/moinmovement
Since the last superblock has passed the MOIN developer has posted on the bitcointalk thread to engage the community in a discussion about the best way to conclude the swap phase. You can see that post @ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1237881.msg13930915#msg13930915 . An idea for ending the swap that was not originally in the running is described @ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1237881.msg13933572#msg13933572 . Essentially it ends the swap over X period of time and reduces the swap rate proportionally until the swap value = 0 and the swap is over. After a bit more discussion it has been suggested that the plan is to allow 10 more weeks for swapping with the rate of MOINV1 to MOIN being reduced until it is zero. The next step is to set firm dates for these swap rate reductions and ultimately the end of the swap. Feel free to join in the discussion @ https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1237881 or stop in at the #moin-crypto chatroom.
