NewYorkCoin.net - History of NYC Coin, Bitcoin Alternative
New York Coin open-source code launched on March 6th, 2014. Original GitHub repository has never been accessed or modified since launch. Original developer has never communicated with anyone and only posted 1 tweet, 2 facebook posts and 12 posts on original bitcointalk forum announcement page. NYC Coin was quietly launched at a time when New York regulators were going hard after bitcoin startups and aggressively prosecuting the founder of Bit-Instant, Charlie Shrem. New York Coin launched approximately 6 months before the death of Hal Finney, recipient of 1st Bitcoin ever sent. NYC Coin is one of the most usable and disruptive cryptocurrencies ever created offering users no fees, near instant transactions with confirmations every 30-seconds, energy-efficient mining, fair launch with no hold-backs, scrypt proof-of-work (just like Litecoin and Dogecoin) and 100% open source code.
Early scrypt miners in March 2014 were amazed by NYC Coin's much more usable specs compared to any other cryptocurrency available at the time. A worldwide decentralized group of New York Coin supporters quickly formed and have loyally supported the NYCoin network for 6+ years. There were no updates to original nycoin.net website launched by original developer(s). No updates to social media accounts, no posts or communication from original developer on bitcointalk forum, nothing ever again. An early NYC Coin miner, Charlie Kartchner (scryptenthusiast at bitcointalk forum) created the website newyorkco.in back in March 2014, shortly after receiving no response from numerous attempts to contact original developer(s). Charlie also created a new facebook page here and a new twitter account here and got New York Coin listed on CoinMarketCap in early 2014. Another early NYC Coin miner, (Coinsprofit at bitcointalk forum), started nyc.coinsprofit.com mining pool which became the official mining pool for New York Coin in early 2014. Another early NYCoin miner (hobbyist at bitcointalk forum) created a block explorer and another mining pool for NYC Coin. The nycoin.net website launched by original developer(s) was never updated and stayed dormant until the domain name expired in 2015.
Between mid-2015 to mid-2017 New York Coin did not have a website or development team overseeing NYC Coin's direction. During this time period, a tiny cryptocurrency exchange named Coingather listed NYC Coin and began to mine it as well. That exchange unexpectedly vanished in the 2nd half of 2017. Later to find out that their exchange was operating illegally in Ohio and had been raided and shut down by the FBI. Likely taking many early miners New York Coin permanently out of circulation. THE MAJORITY of NewYorkCoin listed as "Circulating Supply" have very likely been permanently removed from the market. Old files get deleted, computers get replaced, hard drives fail or get written over, passwords are forgotten, etc. Especially when a coin has a very large blockchain requiring over 1 GB+ of storage space and minimal liquidity or value for years. Or even a website from mid-2015 thru mid-2017. In early summer of 2017, Charlie Kartchner registered nycoin.net domain name and rang the alarm on bitcointalk forum. NYC Coin supporters worldwide answered the call. Network nodes were quickly back up and running, mining pools were re-established and multiple block explorers were synced with the New York Coin network.
In early January 2018, NYC Coin market valuation skyrocketed to $125,000,000 USD ($0.0012/NYC) shortly after Bitcoin's supercycle to $20,000. A worldwide group of new supporters formed the NYCoin Community, established a new GitHub repository and began updating the original code and wallets here. In March 2018, Charlie Kartchner founded and opened The New York Coin Center in the SoHo neighborhood of Lower Manhattan to help promote awareness of New York Coin's unique retail-level specs. And help raise general awareness of cryptocurrencies in the financial capital of the world. The New York Coin Center was operational from March 2018 thru September 2018 and was one of the earliest brick-and-mortar cryptocurrency education and information centers in the world.
On October 29th, 2018, after several delays, NYCoin Community Devs successfully implemented a hardfork that updated network security & stability replacing the aging Kimoto Gravity Well with Digishield and implemented Aux-POW / Merge Mining adding considerable hashrate to the network which helps protect against future 51% attacks and multipool abuse. Just prior to the hard-fork implementation in late October 2018, AZORult malware-infected wallets were uploaded by a malicious member(s) of the new NYCoin Community to their new GitHub repository which enabled attack vectors for the only successful 51% attack in NYC Coin's 6+ year history. cmelion from NYCoin Community then used the exact same excuse given by the Denarius dev from ZDNet article referenced above, literally verbatim, for the reason malware was mysteriously uploaded to their NYCoin Community NewYorkCoin-NYC repository. It was quite comical; though not so much at the time.
In the end, no user wallets were affected by attack. The attack only affected exchanges from "double-spent" NewYorkCoin. As a result of this chaos-bomb, NYC was subsequently delisted from numerous exchanges affected by "double-spent" NYC. Yobit, NYC Coin's #1 volume exchange, temporarily closed NYC deposits and withdrawals. Yobit has allowed uninterrupted trading since listing NYC in 2017. In July 2019, Yobit synced NYC blockchain (version 1.3), updated wallets and re-opened NYC deposits. Withdrawals on Yobit have not re-opened yet. No New York Coin wallet has ever been hacked. The well-planned and orchestrated 51% attack only affected exchanges from "double-spent" NYC. The end result of 51% attack back in October 2018 was NYC getting delisted from numerous exchanges which depressed both price and liquidity to near all-time lows throughout 2019. And presented a once-in-a-lifetime buying opportunity, especially for those that had initially entered NYC Coin at much, much higher FOMO prices during January 2018 mega-run.
Block reward reduction (inflation reduction) was implemented at block #4,800,000 and will continue thru block #7,000,000. New York Coin block rewards will be reduced to 50 NYC in December, 2020. Effectively capping NYC Coin's maximum lifetime supply under 145 Billion. New York Coin has recently been listed on numerous worldwide cryptocurrency exchanges including STEX, Exrates, Tokok, SouthXchange and HODL HODL. Additional exchange listings are planned to be announced soon.
