--Crisis Averted Thanks To Fast Acting Devs--

Recommended Posts

Dear MinCoin users, In a rush to get the mac/osx client out to the MinCoin community we decided to outsource the work unlike the windows and linux build which were done in house.

We ran some initial tests on the osx build and everything looked 'good'. However, after ~10 downloads of the mac/osx client, one of our users reported he was experiencing 'strange wallet behavior' and upon hearing this we immediately pulled the OSX client D'L link from the site to investigate the issue.

Upon further testing we found that our hired osx dev had left a private key to his personal wallet in the file. Now we are not certain if this was left over from his testing and simply a clerical error made in haste to finish the client as quickly as possible but it is possible it may have been intentional and done with ill-intent.

Either way, thanks to our fast acting dev team the D'L was pulled and at this point in time we have only been notified of one user having a 'missing coin' issue and we have apologized to said individual and issued a refund of the 3mnc he lost with a couple extra for his troubles.

For now, if you happened to be one of the other 9 users who downloaded the mac/osx client version please transfer any coins out to a non-mac/osx client or to an exchange like mcxNOW.com. and delete the client in its entirety(Do not backup the wallet.dat). And we apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused you.

Also, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns about this matter, we can be reached via email:admin@mincoin.io

For those still wanting a mac/osx client, please know we will be developing a new version, Built In House, and it will be available for download shortly. We appreciate and thank you for your patience while we work on getting this new client built.

Sincerely, -MNC Dev Team

For the record, the newest OS X wallet has been built in-house, has been tested quite a bit on both Mainnet and Testnet3 and is operating quite dandy.

We had a few iterations of it as we were progressing through incremental upgrades prior to the upcoming Hard Fork around September 28th.  Public release of the new OS X wallet should be within 72 hours.
