GINCOIN WALLET V1.3.0 New wallets and full node software have been published on Github. The update shall be enforced on the 10th of July 2019, so all node runners are required to update before this date. If you host your node on the GIN Platform it will be automatically updated, you only need to update your local wallet. The update procedure is simple, replace binaries and restart the daemon/wallet. Be sure to make a backup of the wallet.dat file before updating as a precaution. github.com/GIN-coin/gincoin-core/releases
GINCOIN BUDGET BLOCKS ON TESTNET The $GIN testnet has been updated with the superblock functionality for the GIN Foundation and Freighter Fleet budget allocations. First superblock is scheduled at block 32300 on testnet, estimated to occur in about 24h. All testnet node runners are required to update the node by compiling the latest master (no binaries are released). No action is required from mainnet node runners. Depending on how the test goes we shall plan the mainnet budget superblocks start and cycle. We target to release the production code along with the new Komodo notaries list after the 15th of June.
NEW COMMUNITY VOTING SYSTEM! @everyone we have just launched the new voting system for GIN Foundation governance purposes. It allows masternodes on the platform, as well as those hosted outside the platform to cast their votes in an easy way, on subjects that are of importance to the whole ecosystem. We have a test vote session running for the rest of the year, so you can test the voting process before voting on real decisions, you can try it out now. On 18 Apr 2019 we will started the voting session for the GIN Foundation funding proposal, session active until 26 Apr 00:00. p.ginplatform.io/#!/votes A few notes on the process: - If you have nodes on the platform the vote is easiest, just choose your option and you vote with all your eligible nodes at once - For self-hosted nodes you will create a special transaction of 0.0001 GIN + 0.0001 GIN for fees, that goes to an address corresponding to the option you choose; the voting system will guide you through the whole process, you simply need to choose your option and sign a transaction in your wallet
On Freighters, foundations, a new-found libation, on plans for the future and spoons. An update on where we've been, where we're heading and what this means for GIN investors and enthusiasts. medium.com/@gincoin/for-gins-1-year-anniversary-our-gift-to-you-2ba4ed007045

The GIN/BTC pair is now listed for trading on CoinExchange: www.coinexchange.io/market/GIN/BTC Following the temporary closing of all trading on Cryptopia we have opened a new exchange listing next to the existing CryptoBridge. As previously discussed, higher volume exchanges are in the works but none as actionable as lower volume ones and we needed to open another market quickly to avoid trading centralization. Again, please be aware that not all exchanges listed on our CMC page are endorsed, please only trade on the ones that you see listed on our website gincoin.io/
Cryptopia will probably be in maintenance for an unknown period of time. Please be aware of the situation. We caution you - do not deposit anything in previously used Cryptopia addresses. There have been unofficial communications from the crypto community that their ETH wallet was hacked. We do not have a specific view on this matter. Currently, we do not have any reason to believe that Cryptopia 's GIN wallet was affected by the attack. If you need to buy or sell GIN, you might want to use the first exchange that we were listed on: Cryptobridge - crypto-bridge.org/ We are currently working on enabling the community to access new relevant exchanges.
API access is now activated to everyone, just access the API access page under My account and generate a new API key p.ginplatform.io/#!/account/api-access We recommend all developers that built apps using the GIN Platform API (especially mobile apps) to upgrade the authentication method to support reading the API key via QR code instead of manual entry.
GINcoin is now supported by the open source NBitcoin library, meaning .NET developers can build cross platform apps that use and interact with the GINcoin blockchain. This is no small feat, as this is the first .NET native implementation of Lyra2Z, now easily enabling other coins using this algorithm to build support. Thank you @Kabak for the great work! github.com/MetacoSA/NBitcoin/pull/592
The GIN Platform now supports multiple languages, just switch the language from the top right of the screen. Languages supported right now are English, Romanian and Russian. We have Spanish, Italian and French in the works, while we welcome community contributions for any unsupported language, just get in touch with me if you want to help translating.
We are excited to join Blockfolio Signal to keep you updated on our latest project updates. Just in time for today's news: We have launched the GIN Platform API, enabling developers to programmatically create and monitor nodes for all the (currently) 110 blockchains supported by the platform.
