As you know I have stepped down from developing BBQcoin and it is now being run by the BQC foundation. The problem is for some reason my current host/domain supplier keeps resetting my redirections no matter how many times I update them.
So for now, I have updated the client download and source code on here to the official ones as mentioned in BigDuab’s post here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=310290.0
I wish the foundation all the success for the future and look forward to seeing BBQcoin grow into the great coin it has the potential for.
There are going to be some changes with BBQcoin over the next coming days, first of all no matter what the changes are your coins are safe.
Here is a list of what is going to be happening:
1) Website redesign to make it look more crisp and fresh.
2) The forum might be moving over to Cryptocointalk, as you might already know, it is a fantastic website for all Crypto-Currency’s and BBQcoin should be over there getting more attention.
3) Windows client update – This is long overdue. Checkpoints are going to be added for extra security of your coins and also an upgrade to the difficulty adjustment calculation, making BBQcoin faster and even more secure.
I believe that these changes are going to be for the better of BBQcoin and I will also be pushing to get it added on more services.
As you all probably already know I did not create BBQcoin but I did however start this website, rally support for the coin and get it on some exchanges.
From this point on, we are going to be personally inspecting and updating the code of BBQcoin from the ground up.
Without even looking at the code, we know there are seed node problems, the client needs some more customization and the coin needs more exposure.
Once we start or get involved in a project we stick with it and continue to support it, no matter what the cost or conditions.
BBQcoin is here to stay and will become stronger than it has EVER been before.
The Development Team
Well according to Bitcoin666.org most recent post, BBQcoin is still going to be around and as strong as ever in 6 months time.
True or false, I still like seeing it written about as it is more publicity for us.
I don’t believe in fate anyway, I believe we get back what we put in and that’s that.
The 80% client statistic is interesting though, I wondering if that is actually true?
As of today an item selling section has been added to the bbqcoin.org offical forum, this is for listing items for sale and payment is by BBQcoin only.
This is going to be a trial run to start off with and if successful will lead to a much larger scale project.
In my eyes BBQcoin is only going to be worth something more if you actually have something to spend it on, its a currency after all.
The new project website is 25% complete and the design of the actual product has begun.
The first release of the product is going to be a basic version just so we can just see how this type of project will be received by the community and also to test the infrastructure that we are putting in place.
Right now I don’t believe we need more client updates, what we need is an online reason to actually buy and mine BBQcoin other than to just trade them for other coins.
The main aim for a currency is to be able to spend it and not just solely trade it.
A quote I like to go by is “Better to have tried and failed, than to have never tried at all”
Even if this project does not take off even though it should, I have a feeling that other Alt-coin developers might be at least interested in the concept.
After this project is up and running my next one is going to be about giving something back to all the fantastic users that have supported BBQcoin and continue to to so, without you BBQcoin would be nothing.
It is going to be big, well, i think it is big and it has never been done before as far as I can see.
We are working on the website now and once finished, I will release and [ANN] for it and the website with have a forum but with one thread only and a signup section
I am excited about this one, combining the two things I love together and to start the journey for BBQcoin to have a true purpose as a real currency.
We are still working on our client development as planned and are now going to be looking at all area’s of its functionality too see where improvements can be made to increase stability. This is our main focus at the moment.
I am not too sure where this new client update has come from on BBQcoin.com, they do not even have a direct link to their source code.
We have nothing to do with this update, so download it at your own risk.
We are working the same now as we have been from the start, back when BBQcoin was worth nothing and not on any exchange.
We are working hard on a Iphone app for BBQcoin which to start with will be information based, keeping you up to date on current news and developments.
Twitter and Facebook have proved to be quiet popular, even more so Twitter, so we are going to plan adding then into the app aswell.
Getting this app onto the Apple store is going to cost £100 but I am going to pay for this out of my own pocket.
As you can see I don’t have a donation link on my webpage, as I would prefer community support rather than donations.
And the BBQcoin community has been great and my thanks goes out to you all.
Having listened to the BQC community feedback the following change has taken place.
We have added an official BBQcoin.org Twitter account to keep you fully updated on any changes the very minute they come in.
This is one of the fastest ways to get information out to the community, with the updates getting added on Facebook and then the main website in that order.
We hope that you all find this useful.
The twitter link is at the top right of the webpage.
If you cannot find it then here is the direct link https://twitter.com/BBQcoinOfficial
After many months of changing the website due to community feedback we have finally changed it to a website that is simple but effective, getting users to the information that they need quickly.
This is more in line with the look of Bitcoin.org and we all know how well Bitcoin is doing.
We feel now that BBQcoin is to be taken seriously and that it no longer needs gimmicks to attract attention, the name alone does that.
We are now working hard on the next client update and right now I am finishing off the first BBQcoin guide and information video.
