I have picked up a flaw in the code, do you know that EFL addresses are the same as the Litecoin wallet addresses and I don't think this can be fixed (maybe I am wrong) , obviously the original devs had no intentions of this coin being a longterm project.
This is another reason why targetting the mainstream Dutch citizens is a must as most people involved in crypto will pick this flaw up and new people to crypto won't know what litecoin is.

I am aware and I agree this is a major mistake from the original devs. We could change the first letter to an E (or whatever). Though all old addresses won't show up in the wallet anymore all transactions should still be available. My guess is it will only change the public keys, not the private ones. This is something that will have to be looked into more before pushing it though.

There is a solution I was thinking about, which is on the interface level. We could require an address to start with EFL on the interface and then strip the first two characters when the address enters the system. Also the other way around. We could present all addresses with the EF prefix. Only when you look in the blockchain the EF will be absent. But that's for specialists anyway. I don't think this is a mayor coding issue, but funny and exceptional indeed.

For the time beeing the current situation is practical, using liteaddress.org to generate cold storage

Thinking about it more it would be best just to leave it as the litecoin addresses as it might confuse people especially in the future when it comes to claiming taxation on crypto transactions, if EFL gets big you will just be subject to questions about it and basically you have a good answer regarding the original devs just being extremely lazy and not caring about the code as it was intended as just a quick money making scheme for them, the community took over and you made the best of the situation.

Well I think we can change it. And sooner rather than later. Though I think it will be a shock for people to see that all their addresses are 'gone'. (Which is why we need to do it sooner, because we won't have to worry about Albert Heijn calling us and saying we f****d up  their money)

If we're going to do this I'd say we do it after the release of the Christiaan Huygens wallet.

Maybe start a poll about it, for me the starting letter is really not important, why would I care about a L or G or 1? I know when i'm using e-Gulden we all have a L, but if you guys can and want to change it go ahead. I think it's best when AD starts a poll, because he knows the right words, if there is no poll after the weekend I'll start one myself. Thanks for thinking with us Dave!

Thanks Nelis,  I am also in the process of relocating so won't be around for awhile. Goodluck with the projects, I have also sent Nelis a final PM.
