Unhappy Community

Since grewalsatinder was on holiday, he did not update the Bitcointalk forum thread with all the new updates and happenings on PIRATE project. This led to some arguments and people wanting to restart the chain. To that point, many community members had already been mining PIRATE for about a week, hence why jl777 proposed a giveaway of 250,000 PIRATE, which totaled to around 10% total circulating supply at that date/time.

Unhappy Community
September 22, 2018

Supply Change

Since a hardfork was planned for Pirate (Read dPoW), jl777 also suggested changes to increase the block reward halving time for miners, which would incentivize more miners to join the PIRATE blockchain network securing it with more block mining hash rate and also a change in supply to 200 million.

Supply Change
September 23, 2018

dPoW

SHossain announces that "Notarization of private chain worked!", which was previously not the case (The tests were done on a seperate chain with the same params as Pirate called TXSCLPRT). The chain forks the next day and dPoW gets integrated. On top of that, the halving time increased 5x, and this change increased the total supply amount of the PIRATE blockchain to approximately 200 million.
