UPDATE: LOOK AT THE DATE POSTED BEFORE READING Due to Iwaku's increased server demands and rising costs I have been working on a system based on the design of Bitcoin and the many distributed computing projects that exist now. This seemed like the perfect day to announce it. Starting in one month (May 1) Iwaku will be moved to a distributed computing system called IwakuNet. You will be able to download software for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, IOS, or VMS. Once installed your computer will be integrated into IwakuNet. This system is designed to permanently eliminate the need for server hardware upgrades because the more people that are on the site the more processing power will be available. Performance will be greatly improved for you as well because some of the data needed to access the site will be located on your computer instead of a remote server. Now, I understand that not everyone will be able to run this software on their computer/phone/tablet for various reasons and that is ok. To make sure that everyone is able to participate but still support the site I have implemented a system called RoryCoin. You will receive RoryCoins based on how much processor power you are contributing to the site. The baseline is a dual core i5 processor at 50% load, I decided to name it for another one of the site admins so it will be called a VayCore. You will receive 1 RoryCoin per VayCore per hour. I plan on releasing a database of how many VayCore's various equipment has. As time goes on it will require more and more processing power to earn a RoryCoin. If for some reason you are unable to run the software you can purchase/barter RoryCoins from fellow members. Additionally, starting in a month you will be able to delete previous posts in exchange for RoryCoins. The number of coins you receive will be based on the quality of the post as determined by Iwaku staff and its age. You will also receive RoryCoins when you sign up for webhosting based on the average price people are currently selling RoryCoins for. Making 1 post costs 1 RoryCoin 1 chat message costs 0.1 RoryCoin 1 Like/Love/Etc. costs 0.5 RoryCoin Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
