January 1, 2014 - Over 1 Million Blocks
With just over 1 million blocks, I0coin has hit an important milestone. It shows high block counts are possible while still maintaining a stable client and block chain. I0coin is once again forging new ground in the crypto-currency world.

I0coin obtained a network hash rate of 500 Tera hash per second for the first time, which is about a tenth of Bitcoin's.

This makes I0coin one of the most secure digital currencies on the planet.

September 15, 2013
I0coin was re-listed on the crypto-currency exchange vircurex.com. I0coin had been removed in 2012 because the old client used too much memory and became unstable. These problems are now fixed. Competing digital currencies could very well face similar problems, including bitcoin. When the block chain gets too big, memory usage becomes excessive. I0coin has already addressed this problem so it is a step ahead of the rest.


August 16, 2013
A major I0coin client upgrade to version 0.8.3-2 has been released. The new client makes all older versions obsolete and unsafe to use because of necessary security improvements. All users must now run version 0.8.3-2 or later to prevent a possible "forking" of the block chain. This new version brings I0coin up to date with all of Bitcoin's security features while still maintaining merged mining capabilities. As a side note, this important upgrade occurred exactly two years from I0coin's debut. The genesis block was mined on August 16, 2011. Happy Birthday I0coin!!!
