CrowdFunding
We are planning to build a new ColossusCoin XT Blockchain (Ticker: COLX). It will be based on the PIVX Source Code and we will do a full Swap (2:1 exchange rate) on NovaExchange.
https://novaexchange.com/coinswap/ . For 2 ColossusCoin2 (CV2) you will get 1 ColossusCoinXT (COLX).
The Total Circulating Money Supply will get halved to 12.0 Billion COLX Coins.

New ColossusCoinXT Wallet Specs: Improved Proof of Stake 3.0 protocol, Masternodes, SwiftTX Instant Transactions,
Private Instant Verified Transactions /full-time private transactions, Obfuscation Mixing Mechanism, innovative variable seesaw reward mechanism, Coin Control and more

The crowdfunding is active. Please send BTC to Bitcoin Address: 18MXDWxe9Z6dEW5XV78CRomZBdiTEpeC2H if you want to support the Project.
First Goal: 0.55 BTC for new COLX Wallet Creation. First Goal reached!
Second Goal: 0.50 BTC for NovaExchange Coin Swap Service Second Goal reached!

Note: If we don't achieve our goals we will just do a CV2 ColossusCoin2.0 Feature update with the collected funds.
The Dev fund address will stay public so the community can see our transparency.

Thank you!
The Colossuscoin Dev Team

 

 

>>Update<<

 

Colossuscoin was founded as a energy-efficient Internet currency and we want to continue our concept to be a long-term energy-efficient/ Evironmentally friendly Crypto-Currency!  
BitSend is based on POW proof-of-work mining thus mining consumes a lot of energy.
This is one of the reasons why we have decided to continue as a POS/ Proof of Stake Coin.
The new ColossusCoinXT COLX Blockchain will be based on the PIVX Source Code with a fixed block reward.
The PIVX Features are very innovative,  special and awesome (for instance: improved Proof of Stake 3.0 protocol, Masternodes, SwiftTX Instant Transactions,
Private Instant Verified Transactions /full-time private transactions, Obfuscation Mixing Mechanism, innovative variable seesaw reward mechanism, Coin Control ...)
See: https://pivx.org/what-is-pivx/features/  . We have scheduled to start the Coin Swap to the new ColossusCoinXT COLX Blockchain on mid September 2017. The only place you can swap your CV2 for COLX will be on https://novaexchange.com/coinswap
Thank you for your understanding! We will continue to do our best to push ColossusCoin forward!

There was a certain amount of time (a deadline) for swapping your ColossusCoin (COL) to ColossusCoin2.0 (CV2).




Proof of Work/Proof of Stake Hybrid transitioning into Proof of Stake only
Hashing Algorithm: X13
Blocktime: 120 seconds Blocktime

Proof of Work
- 19.1 Billion per Block the first Block
= Approx. 15.8 billion were already both mined and staked by Colossuscoin (COL) holders (1/20 coin split)

Proof of Stake reward
- POW 1000 Coins per Block for 10,080 Blocks (10 days)

- 20 Coin Fee on transactions is also part of the Block reward on top of the 5000 Coins per Block
- It is to allow for higher rewards at lower inflation per year.

The new Colossucoin2.0 blockchain have 19.1 Billion premined coins in the first block (of which approx. 15.8 Billion were already both mined and staked by Colossuscoin (COL) holders (1/20 coin split) equaling over 313.3 Billion ColossuscoinV1(COL) to date)
Approx. 15.8 Billion Colossuscoins2.0 (CV2) will be reserved for a full swap over, this corresponds to approx. 313.5 billion total Colossuscoin (COL) supply (20:1 Colossuscoin-Colossucoin2.0 ratio)
3.3 Billion Colossuscoins2.0 extra are created and will be added to the Development Fund for the Swapover, for future costs, bounties, future projects and Colossuscoin2.0 development. (500 Million CV2 remain)
To start the Development Fund would only be accessible by Sudo23 and Th82 with multiple layers of security but we plan on creating an online wallet with Multi-Authentication for access, and Multi-Sig for transaction approval. Development Fund Address: CLMK9f4mL6npAvV8n8PMCJEZSzSZvVm38e
Unswapped coins:
All excess ColossusCoin2.0 unclaimed coins will be distributed through BOINC community-based open-source project.  (reserve 10% for the development fund).
Transparency: The Community will be able to check/track an open ledger of the swapped coins. The Foundation will maintain an open ledger for all its transactions and an open ledger of the premine, 100% transparent. We will be publishing a transparent budget for all payments via blockchains explorers.
As mentioned before, Transparency is our priority.
Premine Fund Wallet Address: CV5zFE8B33wdSWrTdXLLiKtQyanaBK5wRb (2.75 Billion CV2 are remained from the swap-over and will be used for further Development)
 

Colossuscoin was founded on 22 August 2013 and is a decentralized, open-source peer-to-peer (P2P) energy-efficient Internet currency that enablesfast instant payments to anyone in the world with almost no fees. It runs off the popular scrypt protocol which gives it unmatched stability and easy accessibility. Its design is public, nobody owns or controls Colossuscoin and everyone can take part.

/Mining Pools

There is no Proof-of-Work its all PoS now. PoW mining is not possible anymore.

/Reimbursement of Lost Coins
Reimbursement of all previously lost coins happend throughout the swap and up to the cut-off date. The cut-off for the swap to the new coin finished after 3 4 months. After the 4 5 months the remained coins became part of the Development and Marketing Fund managed by the Foundation.
In order to be eligiable for reimbursement you must be able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that your coins have in fact been lost.

  • The Colossuscoin Foundation helping to advance and promote Colossuscoin adoption.
  • We are working hard behind the scenes improving all areas of the foundation, a bright future lays before us, full of potential and challenges.

  • Colossuscointalk and its members work together to create a strengthened platform and improved Colossuscoin Foundation on www.Colossuscointalk.org


Q: Why should I exchange ColossusCoinV1 (COL) to Colossuscoin v2.0 (CV2)?
A: Due to the massive size of the main wallet ColossusCoin COL v1 (the old one) has multiple errors in the code, several hardforks and wallet syncing issues (peers are not to be able to connect to each other on the network). The main issue with it is the messaging system, low fees, fast stake and long minimum Prooof of Stake so to just change all of that and keep with the near 1 GB Blockchain just wouldn't make sense. The Colossuscoin COL V1 Block Chain is currently not moving and Col1.52 blockchain is stuck . The original ColossusCoin has experienced technical issues as described in detail here and here.
There are also several bugs and the Colossuscoin/V2-team could not identify the solution to such as transactions getting rejected and being hard to recover as well as Stake before Sync issues and extremely slow Block download times. So thats why the Colossuscoin/V2 team have decided to build a new blockchain (Colossuscoin2) and do a full swap for a new Blockchain (20:1 Colossuscoin-Colossucoin2.0 ratio). The ColossusCoin2.0 Blockchain is already running smoothly, very well and the ColossusCoin/V2 Development Team focus on improving the working CV2 blockchain.

Q: Do you have interest?
A: Yes. Colossuscoin2 Proof of Stake minting increases supply at a rate up to 6.5% per year. The minting reward is fair for all users. There are currently approximately 20.2 billion Colossuscoin2 in circulation. When the entire money supply grows due to the minting process, all Colossuscoin2 holders who participate in minting maintain their relative share of the network.  PoS verifies users’ coins to secure the network and process transactions. This ensures that transactions are speedy and this ensures decentralization, as anyone holding some of the currency is part of network. The only way for new Colossuscoin2 to be created is through staking by users, for which they will receive the 6.5%, decentralized, compound interest yearly.
