DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

How Can Devcoin Be Improved?


Here I propose some improvements for devcoin, to combat devaluation and other negative activities. I am by no means an expert at cryptocurrencies, so if something is not possible, just shoot me a message on my talk page!

Code

Devcoin's code (both daemon and -qt) should be caught up to the latest bitcoin codebase (0.8.5) for security fixes. Also, the block reward should be reduced to decrease the rate of inflation. (Maybe a gradual slope down) Devcoin needs to have lots of miners at first though, or else this will just reduce the revenue for the foundation.

  • UPDATES:
    • Devcoin has been updated to the latest bitcoin
    • Devcoin is merge mined, so block rewards are not a problem

Philosophy

Devcoin has been awarding writers and programmers, but sites in which you can post your art for devcoins are much in need. (like deviantart - you can pay to download a picture in “deviantart credits.”)

Bounties

Devcoin needs new bounties for more businesses, pools, and exchanges to get the currency moving. It has been cited as a “Zimbabwe” currency and we need to get rid of that assertion from the public.

  • UPDATES:
    • The value of devcoin has been rising but it is not back at former levels

"Devcoin Accepted Here" Campaign

Devcoin needs to be accepted at more businesses for there to be an incentive to buy devcoin. An advertising campaign in much in need.
