Anounce: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=577267

Launched 17 May 16:00 GMT

Specification
PoW Algorithm:       Wild Keccak(blockchain-based hash scratchpad)
Block generation:     2 minutes
Money supply:         18,446,744.073709551615
Premine:                 0
Default p2p port:     10101
Default rpc port:     10102
Developer Bounty:  1% (One percent of coins found go to developer)

Main benefits:
  • Blockchain-based hash: unlike Bytecoin PoW hash, which works on 2MB scratchpad and takes avr 30-100 ms, new hash works on blockchain random data to provide operation speed. At the same time mining process is really memory-hard. It gives faster synchronization with network and immunity from DoS attacks.
  • Transaction outs with guaranteed anonymity. An additional attribute for out is added: it can ONLY be used in the transaction with mixin level in ring signature not less than a given number. The feature is added to ensure the user’s anonymity of transactions ring signature over time.
  • Alerts (signed by developers) broadcast via p2p mechanism, which will inform participants of the network of critical updates or other important events
  • Donation-based crowdfunding: the project don't have premine, instamine or other unfair launch. The project has open and transparent model of project financing: part of the emission (1%) is reserved for the development of the project, BUT the rate of emission of these coins will be controled by network participants (miners) using votes.
    As a tribute to technology, we have fixed royalty percentage of donation, charged to the founders of Cryptonote.
  • Removed dust from block reward - nice little thing to reduce weight of the blockchain transactions outs index.
  • Wallet addresses aliasing: any wallet can be linked with symbolic name via special type extra record in coinbase. Blockchain will control registered names uniqueness.
  • Rational emission curve
  • Transaction identification by prefix: this feature will let us to cut off ring signatures from blockchain that under checkpoint - save space by 30-70%(depends of mixin usage)

PoW hash: Wild Keccack(blockchain-based hash)
Wild Keccak is a Keccak hybrid which uses blockchain data as scratchpad. After each Keccak round, pseudo-randomly addressed [state vector used as addresses] data is taken from scratchpad and XORed with state. Calculating each block PoW usually hits about 1100 randomly addressed reading of blocks by 32 bytes.

Thank you for submitting Boolberry.

Your contribution to CryptoNote is valuable. Although, the hash algorithm is not CryptoNight, it might be an interesting experiment.

We'll review the source code and get back to your request soon.

We have reviewed your code and are ready to announce Boolberry as a CryptoNote coin. We see your coin as an important experiment for the technology as you are introducing quite a number of new features. Moreover, your modification of the CryptoNight hash algo is also valuable.

Could you submit your logo, please?

BTC Mike on bitcointalk said they are in the process of doing the logo but it might take one week or more.

In the meantime you could use that one if you wish (definately not the definitive one, but i think better than nothing for now)

Catherine,

Please do not use above logo. The official logo will be completed shortly.

Congratulations to the developers.
I've been following cryptonote based coins, and as a marketing student I would like to make some suggestions. Cryptonote strength is that it's focus on anonymity but it's needs a killer application to became popular, like ruby language had rails, after all you can have a wonderful software project missed because lack of users . I think that the logical applications for anonymous coin is software like openbazaar. I would suggest a coin brand called bazaarcoin, I would be delightful to work in a project towards that way.
