Today some clients on the Feathercoin blockchain stopped synchronizing.
The team has worked on the problem and released version 0.18.2 of feathercoin-core and gui, which contains a fast fix for the problem.
If you compile the code yourself, get the latest code from “https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/releases” as soon as possible.
If you use a precompiled binary/package for windows download the latest version from “https://github.com/FeatherCoin/Feathercoin/releases”
If you use Linux installation packages, run the OS specific update process for the feathercoin package and if that fails get the latest package from “https://software.opensuse.org/package/feathercoin”. Select ‘community packages’ for your distribution and check that he version displayed is 0.18.2
A detailed description how to install /update the software can be found here at the Feathercoin forum
Today the Linux installation packages for Ubuntu were created.
If a previous version was already installed, users can update to the latest revision using the command ‘sudo apt-get install feathercoin’
If no feathercoin package was installed before follow the instructions here

@gonnaforget said in If I'm reading this correctly, Mining Pool Hub is claiming to be doing about 90% of the total FTC hashrate right now.:
Isn’t it potentially a security risk to have more than 50% of the network hashrate from one place?
not with Advanced Checkpointing - Which Feathercoin has.
What this does is checkpoint the blockchain every X amount of blocks. So even if someone did get 51% of the hashrate…they couldn’t do much except roll back to the last checkpoint.
I’m sure there were a few white papers before Bitcoin, I’m just saying in general for coins. The Satoshi paper contains most of the FTC basic functionality, most other coins are really only “sub papers”.
Perhaps the Bitcoin Talk announce page would do? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178286.0

Right we could do with a list of request link, so our forum members can get requesting, because as we all know the more exchanges more investment,
@wellenreiter said in Smart Contracts on feathercoin blockchain?:
Smart contracts is planned for 0.13.x relases
I’ve added smart contracts to the 0.13.x functional requirement, is there anything else missing?
If someone has a secret like that it would only be a matter of time before 1 someone else does it or 2 people figure out it is known for the very reason that things people shouldn’t know are known or 3 it is leaked.
This is all pretty moot as we know it is a matter of time before generic quantum computers are created/sold. As soon as they are there will be ramp up time to become wide spread, mean while a migration to a new technology that doesn’t use the difficulty to factor large numbers made of two primes as it’s core security. (General Quantum computers crack this using shor’s algorithm)
In short, if someone has this they are their own bottle beck right now and it means the trillions of various encrypted systems are for the most part completely safe. Especially considering the fleeting nature and re-encryption on a message by message nature of so many communications

I read the news regarding btc these days, and i can say its so funny to watch the largest US, British and some EU -guided by a certain type of group of individuals- media outlets. I love the “100reasons why you should not buy btc”, " bubble", etc titles. Its a shame that the lobby of large banks and corporations tied to the above mentioned media outlets doesn’t take advantage of the cryptocurrency status right now. They could develop cryptocurrency solutions and products that people will actually use (and give them healthy profits) but nooooo, lets all piss on btc. Well, personally i am just hodling some more and laughing at the vibe

I looked there wasn’t anything, now there are 6!
It is also great to see FTC as one of the established coins, whereas other coins are trying to get voted on, FTC is already
