Title: [ANN] VGC - VegasCoin
Post by: Byates on February 15, 2014, 04:13:38 AM
http://i57.tinypic.com/6sfadk.jpg
 
At the inception of VegasCoin the idea was to both put the power of money in the peopleís hands just like bitcoin and many other alternative crypto currencies do, but also to give Las Vegas a new promotional tool for business and tourism.

As a local currency dedicated to Las Vegas, VegasCoin provides a platform to help keep money cycling inside the city.  Similar in ambition to AuroraCoin, a crypto currency created for the people of Iceland, VegasCoin seeks to gain acceptance in the local Vegas market while being traded on the larger international market.  In this capacity it is a great vehicle for promoting Tourism in Nevada.  Although the number of people who participate in Crypro Currency exchanges is relatively small, participants are international in scope and their numbers are rapidly growing.  Even if one does not buy and sell VegasCoin on an exchange its there and people see it.  It would be like having a Vegas Dollar appear on the Forex exchange.  Thatís free advertising!  And where are you going to spend your VegasCoins?  One might start in the one city that they are accepted.  See how this could potentially boost tourism?

VegasCoin is not saturated and never will be.  We chose to use almost the same algorithm as litecoin whose total run equals 84,000,000 coins to our 100,000,000 coins. As of this writing this on March 7th 2014, VegasCoin is trading between $0.05 and $0.30 per coin, is listed on two exchanges, and provides a faster more secure system protocol than even bitcoin has.

If I have lost you dear reader I must apologize.  This letter is prefaced on the idea that you have some knowledge of what crypto currency and bitcoin even are.  If you do not I encourage some research and I have provided some links at the footer to get you started.  Without going into all the heady details I will explain it like this.  Crypto currency functions like digital cash without any or at extremely low transaction fees, VegasCoin functions in this capacity.
Our mission since day one has been to get VegasCoin created then accepted by local businesses that can then benefit from Vegascoinís growth in popularity.  At this juncture we are in negotiation with a limo company, nightclub, and advertising company.  Future plans include meetings with Las Vegas casino & hotel Marketing Directors, Presidents, and Owners.

In closing, it took just under 25 days to create VegasCoin, the VegasCoin.co website, wallet, and get listed two major crypto currency exchanges.  Point being that VegasCoin is in its infancy but is moving very rapidly and people are getting excited.  Most who hear about the coin, instantly say what a great name!  The Las Vegas brand is already world famous and is overdue for its own currency.  Technology moves at a pace that will make your head spin, but those who do not adopt and change risk being left behind.  You donít want to be the last fast food joint to put in a drive through window.

No idea what is wrong with that.. nothing successful here in Las Vegas... and I have inside connections with businesses that really are interested in accepting it right here in Vegas.

Only about 100k coins mined, and they are being used for giveaways and the facebook likes we used an advertising company to help so we could obtain the name /vegascoin

Post by: KimLan on February 15, 2014, 09:15:29 AM
A couple of things I've noticed.
That pool keeping dropping people off at http://vgc.weminecoin.com.

Also when I get the following error when compiling the vegascoin-qt under linux with qmake:


$ qmake
Removed plural forms as the target language has less forms.
If this sounds wrong, possibly the target language is not set or recognized.
uic: Error in line 138, column 23 : Opening and ending tag mismatch.


Any help would be beneficial!

The pool was provided by http://WeMineCoin.com they helped rush the pool out, that may have been a bad choice but we had high demand for the coin release.  Today we have 2 more companies that have existing pools like MineBig.com that plan to open up VGC pools sometime today.  Please check the official pools page: http://vegascoin.co/pools/  for more information.

Note from WeMineCoin.com = " Our servers experienced higher than normal use during the launch, we where faced with shutting the pool down.  Instead we made a quick fix that reboots the stratum server every 5 minutes, this is our best temp fix we could come up with.  The sever upgrade is being requested, but due to the holiday we had some delays.  We hope to have the server fixed in 24 hours, thank you for understanding "

err not sure what is going on, I set myself up at pooled.cc but the block numbers look all messed up.
I see references to LTC and in my profile it appears to be set up for PCC, even though I told it to be VGC...
very confusing. I am not sure what is happening? ???


Title: Re: [ANN] VGC - VegasCoin
Post by: KimLan on February 16, 2014, 04:06:22 PM
Ok I have got the wallet by myself working with source code myself. Of all things there is a typo in one of the forms.

In the source code ./src/qt/forms/overviewpage.ui
 <string notr="true">0 VGC  /string>

It should be:
 <string notr="true">0 VGC  </string>

That has taken me a few hours to find this.

I am no developer by any means but this bug that prevents you from installing is quite poor. To me it just looks like whoever "developed" just copied the source code and not really thought about/or tested the source code compilation.

Post by: spartak_t on February 16, 2014, 05:08:16 PM
Very bad launch, guys.. I mined the coin with 2.7MH  for like 2 hours, when the diff. was very low, but my balance is 1.3 coins. You should provide at least one working pool before launching the coin. I wish you best of luck, but I will move to other coins.

Not a bad launch lol, just the first pool was bad.. So far I am getting the best results from the p2pool.  Try that, and MineBig.com is making a stratum pool today  http://VGC.MineBig.com  but check out the official site http://VegasCoin.co for more info.

And thanks to that guy who found an issue, I will update this Monday.


Title: Re: [ANN] VGC - VegasCoin
Post by: illodin on February 17, 2014, 02:32:57 AM
I think it was a very bad launch. Few people got to mine couple of days by themselves when others couldn't because there was no working wallet.

Even though pooled.cc is buggy and has a lot of graphic glitches, like balance doesn't show up in Dashboard and more, it did pay out every share I made there.

You just select the coin to cashout and you'll see your funds. Checking at Transactions also helps to keep track.
So overall pool is fine ..ish. Just that it died for a good few hours earlier today so I switched.

Good luck.

When we started VegasCoin we had two things in mind, putting the power of the money in the peopleís hands just like bitcoin, and many other alt currencies just like it do.  Offering only 100,000,000 coins total, with a faster more secure system than bitcoin even provides.  However we wanted to bring the municipality aspect into the system, to help keep the money cycled inside Las Vegas, Nevada and promote tourism to future guests.

Just like Auroracoin that shot up over 1000% in one day, for the Icelandic community in Iceland!

We also did not over saturate our coins, we chose to use almost the same algorithm as litecoin who offers 84,000,000 coins to our 100,000,000 coins. Currently as I am writing this on March 5th 2014, VegasCoin is worth $0.05 per coin, itís currently a buyerís market!

Our mission since day one has been to get VegasCoin created then accepted by local businesses who can then take part in the growth.  So far we are in the talks with a limo company, nightclub, and advertising company along with plans to even meet with local Las Vegas, Nevada casino & hotel marketing directors and owners. 

Do understand like anything, everyone wants to see results.  We understand that, and in just under 25 days we managed to not only create VegasCoin, but also the website, wallet and even exposure to 2 crypto currency exchanges.  Most people who hear about the coin, instantly say what a great name we have due to the popular recognition of Las Vegas, Nevada as the vacation hot spot itís already known for.

All in all, do what you want but I can tell you with the plan, name, and system behind this coin.  Anything under $1.00 a coin is a for sure buy in my book.  Thank you for reading this, and please feel free to show your support at www.VegasCoin.co

Vegas has the local currency potential, its a big crypto town already, potentially a lot of avenues for local businesses to accept and use it, thus playing into the demand, and giving it a nice niche, coins need niche and community,
If the vegas community take to it, then it could go far.

Hey, aren`t you worried about that more than 90% NET hashrate is concentrated only in one pool?

Possible 51% attack is very serious problem IMO

After a couple of hours on 300Kh/s I have Unconfirmed VGC account balance of 0.05378698...What's wrong here? Starting to think that Mine big pool has plans of its own...I should make around 9000 coins per day according to pool..any thoughts?


Title: Re: [ANN] VGC - VegasCoin
Post by: JCB44 on March 11, 2014, 12:24:31 AM
klokz

The current difficulty is around 20 and 1 block gives only 30 coins.
So your calculations are wrong. With 300kh/s you might expect, ehh maybe 0.3 coins/hour or so.

That s like saying on a litecoin thread or ant other altcoin with the same goals: "But there is Bitcoin already"
There are other casino's than the ones in Vegas, but there s only one Vegas.  :)

In short: It s about more than just the casino's.

Hi all,

I've been way more active on cryptocointalk, and not so much over here. Being the developer of Vegas coin, that was not a good idea. My bad, mea culpa, and I offer an appology to the community over here.

From today onwards, I'll be around here on a daily basis as well, just as I am available on cryptocointalk and IRC (freenode.net channel #vegascoin). If anybody has a wallet problem, please let me know!

Some quick solutions for wallet problems here:

1) Vegascoin made a change in wallets where from block 25000 and up, all blocks were processed using the Kimoto Gravity Well. If you have an old wallet, and you;re stuck on block 24999, and no new connections are made, the solution is simple: Download the new wallet from http://vegascoin.co/wallet-downloads/ and you'll be fine again!

2) Wallet is current version, but it seems not to be connecting. Check if you have your config file! ~/.vegascoin.conf on Linux, c:\users\sven\appdata\roaming\vegascoin on Windows. If you don't have that file, create it now, make sure that on Linux the file has 0600 permissions! Now, make sure that in the config file you have this line:

Code:
addnode=node.vegascoin.co

Once you have that, your wallet will connect!

What? its still not connecting? Please check if your firewall is not blocking the wallet! I have encountered more than a few people who were just being blocked by firewall / anti virus etc.


Have a great mining all, Vegas coin FTW!

Mintcoin votes needed!

So we are progressing well with the development and marketing of VegasCoin. A lot is being done, but one of the things that we still need more is exchanges!

We're in contact with various exchanges, but some of the better ones require votes to be able to be traded. So we have one favor to ask our fine and fast growing community, that is to help us gain the MintPal exchange.

So far Brandon personally has already sent 0.1 BTC and is planning to send more. Other users already sent up to 0.3BTC as well, so we are well on our way. Please help us with making vegascoin grow sky high!

See http://www.reddit.com/r/VegasCoin/comments/24hcjd/votes_needed_on_mintpal_exchange/ (http://www.reddit.com/r/VegasCoin/comments/24hcjd/votes_needed_on_mintpal_exchange/) (Please help with upvotes!!) and http://vegascoin.co/mintpal-exchange-votes-wanted/ (http://vegascoin.co/mintpal-exchange-votes-wanted/) for more information

Please go to https://www.mintpal.com/voting (https://www.mintpal.com/voting) and make your votes count so that Vegascoin can be traded there as well!

Lol who leaks this stuff! Yes that is true, sorry for the delay we have been very busy with upgrades to the website, updating the other languages and even finalizing the Android Wallet.  All this to get ready for our local market to open up, and have our 10 local businesses added with open spots for any local companies or online businesses willing to accept VGC.

Please excuse my absence from this website, it gave me a few issues before when trying to comment saying I already tried to do so, and had to wait.  We are also in the process of expanding the team, we have an online marketing spot open that will solve this very issue.  I myself am involved in the website development and local marketing full time now, so please understand we are working very very hard everyday on this.  More updates coming soon, and more giveaways once we get everything finished up.

Thanks for your support on VegasCoin!

And here is the car so far, I got this to fix up and will be wrapping the entire thing in 30 days or so.  https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1.0-9/1002679_717016838319037_502880589617067404_n.jpg

And just to prove it's mine and not a BS statement: https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/t1.0-9/1521841_660789130608475_583837899_n.jpg

thats cool!

EDIT: After this LEAK, i can see the VGC rate is clearly going up! ;)

Give it a few weeks. VGC is growing the last few days, can't win Mintpal overnight and have no volume to trade.  ;)
I'm voting (alot) on Cryptsy too... Once 'all is revealed' things will move fast enough I think. :)

Big news takes time to get done, I can tell you the Android dev told us he should be done any day now... He ran into a few issues but looks like it should be done any day now.

The big news is covered with NDA's and contracts at this time, but I have leaked some pics that might give it away ;)

We have already completed our very first giveaway for 1000 VGC and I will be putting on a new giveaway in the next 24 to 48 hours!

Also some of you may have noticed I added the BUY button to the website, well right now we are working on a merchant account to protect against charge backs.  This Buy option will also provide a web based wallet with a SELL feature also coming soon, this will 100% allow people to buy/hold and sell VGC all on our website direct with USD and other currencies coming soon!

All this in hopes to help new fans who might not understand bitcoin, nor have an account to buy bitcoin get into VegasCoin with little to know crypto knowledge.  Also allowing businesses to instantly sell their VGC to us and obtain their USD if they wish :)


Once this is done, we will be the first one to do so I think.. please correct me if I am wrong, but we do strive everyday on this project and have big ties with Las Vegas, Nevada businesses.

Pito your awesome! for sure our #1 fan, and I will never forget that!

This guy literally explains why VGC has the potential to succeed where other coins are just trying to copy Bitcoin. :)

And I quote:

"When a new coin is launched, ask anyone in crypto about it and they will tell you what algorithm is used, how many coins there will be, whether itís a proof-of-work coin, or proof-of-stake, or a hybrid. They may talk about a cool new wallet feature, or a faucet or dice game, or their fancy website or some mobile app they are developing to fund future projects.

All this is great. And the general public cares nothing about any of it.

The public doesnít care whether you have a keychain with your logo on it. They donít care if your algorithm is eco-friendly, or if there are 15 million or 100 million coins. In fact, the public doesnít even know about you, because you have done nothing to get their interest. Before you ever create your coin, you need to figure out how you will distinguish yourself to the world outside of crypto.

How does your coin differ from Bitcoin? Is it faster? Well, a lot of coins are, but thatís not enough. Can your coin be used in an online service to reduce paypal and credit card fees? That would interest the public. Can it be used Ė easily Ė for streamlined and inexpensive international money transfers? Huge.

As an investor I want to know your plans up front. Iím not putting my money into your coin unless you can tell me why it will have value. And I want to know you have the team to realize those plans, which leads toÖ."


In the end it's the dev team that will have to take the necessary steps to achieve this goal and from what I can tell they are reaching for the sky, I mean... THE MOON!  8)

Not to be always doubting but I have heard this from so many developers. They have not shown a single thing that gives this coin value. They have a bunch of well we have great things coming but we cant tell you. Maybe they are buying all the cheap coins and they do have something or maybe they over estimate their abilities. I was a big supporter of this development team and this coin. But I have seen nothing that wants me to keep supporting it.

I completely understand your point of view, I too have my doubts. However, the things that kept me going over the last few weeks/month are:

- they started a business for VGC
- the wrapping of the Corvette (which has sadly also been delayed) is a great promotional tool
- planning to make it easier for non-crypto people to buy VGC is a great concept, but will have to prove itself once it rolls out
- the Android wallet could be ready any day now, this should give us a better idea of what's to come. (is it stable? reliable? secure? easy to use? professionally developed? ...)
- with the Android wallet out, businesses should follow pretty quickly... If/When this happens things could go very fast.
- I have been chatting with the dev trough pm from time to time and there is alot more stuff going on behind the scenes, they just can't say anything about it publicly because of NDA's and as long as it's not a sure thing it would be wrong to put it out there.

The community is relatively small, the original dev team was only 2 people with a full-time job (don't know if they have more staff right now) This makes large investments hard and very risk full. All this results in very slow progress in a platform (crypto) where everyone wants to see things happening as fast as possible. And if it doesn't they lose interest... Personally I agree with the article previously posted and most coins aim to pump and dump but will fail in the long run, since they have no actual plan to use their coin in the real world any different from Bitcoin. Only a minor few are different and I truly believe VGC is one of them. Slowly progressing, but still...  

Time will tell if they have the ability to realize their ambition. But if they do, we're in for a serious ride!  ;D

I hope your right. I have been thinking this is a long term coin but even long term coins need some growth otherwise they fade away. I really like the idea and if they pull this off that would be great. I just have a hard time believing any descent size business will want to use a no name small community coin. I hope they pull this out like i originally thought.

What happed to VGC at Bittrex  ???

https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-VGC (https://bittrex.com/Market/Index?MarketName=BTC-VGC)

Somebody was using a program to generate orders that were always one increment higher than the highest bid. Any new order were immediately leapfrogged so that all sales went to the buyer who wrote the auto bid script. What I did was leapfrog those orders one at a time until I found the limit where the program stopped trying to buy all the coins that were dumped onto the Bitcoins.

Then I noticed that the opposite was now happening. The autoscript was selling coins one increment lower than the lower ask. The script undersold any new leading orders that were placed.

So I placed my buy order at the tiniest increase above the highest ask. And one increment higher than that, I placed 10 shares for sale. Not only did the auto script dump all it's shares into my significantly lower bid and fill it, but I think this low priced sale triggered some stop orders to dump shares as well. The exchange immediately closed very quickly after I was getting all those cheap coins, so I suspect it was the trading exchange that is responsible for the activity I found.

I'm pretty sure VegaCoin is aware of what happened because they removed Bittrex from their page almost at the same time. There must have been a discussion.

I hope they pull this out like i originally thought.

I hate Bitcoin very much but I'm willing to give VegsCoin my support at this time because it has potential exactly as the founders have imagined. I absolutely believe it will draw marketing attention.

Casinos ban their employees from being customers and employees at the same time. Whereas banks can consider it to be an act of dishonesty if an employee doesn't use the company's financial service products. In my opinion, Vegas should run the exchanges and banks should develop financial service products and merchant services. In my opinion, this could be better customer service ethics.

If it was me, I think it is better to find casinos to open USD/VGC exchanges and then let banks outside of Las Vegas worry about making the financial services products. Marketing is the gold mine to be found in VegasCoin. It would really help if the city could get involved here with municipal backing. My question is, can the city remint the VegasCoin with a small city muni bond? Can the new coin have laws, regulations, oversight and customer service? I think it would be a good way to keep the currency centralized in the city where everybody wants to go. And it would also allow financial services and pinpoint marketing outside of the city limits.

As far as growth, my first impression is that growth is an illusion. If Bitcoin crashes and loses half it's value, then it will cause the price of VegasCoin to grows twice as high. But VegasCoin didn't ever grow in terms of United States Dollars. Bitcoin crashed, that's all.

The immediate step is to maybe find a way to build a cash for VGC exchange and a way to keep those exchanges in the city limits. Until then, I think VGC and BTC are on opposite ends of a sea-saw. I believe the dollar will crash or gold will spike and either of these two events will punish Bitcoin prices. That is when VegasCoin will rocket in terms of Bitcoin. At this time, VegasCoin effectively serves as an option instrument to buy Bitcoins in a Bitcoin price crash event. There really is no other use for it, yet, because you can only buy VegasCoin with Bitcoins.

My idea is to re-mint a VegasCoin with a municipal bond instrument and bring it into the mainstream financial services system. It will always be worth a VegasCoin because it was born from a VegasCoin. The hybrid value of adding a municipal bond will add to that base value. And if Bitcoin crashes, then you can cheaply capture and add another one of those into the hybrid coin, too. Vegas is the PERFECT place for this experiment to be attempted. Marketing would be unbelievably precise and highly effective like nothing ever tried before. I KNOW I can sell VegasCoin in Hawaii if there was a casino that was willing to listen to my ideas. This could be very exciting if it can be adopted into the generally accepted financial sytem.

No such thing, volume was just to low... They will put it back when/if VGC shows some growth.
It would be very stupid to put an autoscript on a coin with low volume. Not saying it's impossible however...

yes i confirm that now, as on that day i was watching the order book at Bittrex and it was crazy! then i checked another exchanges, comkort the orderbook looked normal, Allcrypt got some crazy buy and sell from the same person.

Also, maybe Bittrex was testing the new "Order Type" thing.

I really do not mean to be negative it just gets tough when you guys can only say "you just wait" because so many have said it and nothing comes from it. I have been a supporter since day 1 even through the high difficulty time before KGW was implemented. I will not dump because I think this coin has potential it is just hard to sit back when nothing new has happened for awhile.

Yes, we "wait"... That's just it. Do something positive for a change.  :D
What are you guys thinking? Hey, here's a good idea: I would like to see this coin grow to it's full potential and show others how much I believe these devs can actually make this happen. Let's complain about how slow it's going on every single thread... That'll probably help!  :-\

At least the devs are actually DOING SOMETHING instead of just another quick pump and dump story with big speeches about all the technicalities nobody cares about. But hey, I get it. Compared to those dead end coins this IS a very slow growing one.  

BTW: Missed the huge deal post? Here it is: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=741497372537650 (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=741497372537650)
Vegascoin + Casino + huge deal = you do the math  :P

There was a big boost in price. For those that do not follow this coin the developers do not really post here very often so do not think they are missing. It is something we investors have just learnt how to accept. They do have some big things in the works with businesses in Vegas. It will not be for gambling but for other services you find in Vegas. If you want these coins cheap you might want to buy soon. There are very few sell orders so this coin will most likely keep going up.

I am surprised that no one is talking about the sudden jump in price. Maybe what the dev was telling us is true that the businesses will be buying some of the coin before it announces they accept them. Or maybe it is the developers buying them. :-\

There was no boost, there's barely any volume atm. Just one guy buying up some coins, that's all VGC needs right now to "boost" the price. I think this will go on for some time... As long as there's no real news, there'll be no real trading.  ;)

It's quiet all around... Even on cctalk.
There's only two options imo:
Or they have their reasons to keep things quiet (as they have claimed several times) and have huge stuff in the works as a company while they/investors buy/mine a load of VGC.
Or they're keeping their heads high while still trying to get this coin of the ground.
My bet is on the first one. 8)

All this coin needs is a real spark that will light up it's true potential. So far nothing official had the ability to do that... Could be any day, could be next year. I'm as clueless as the rest of you.  ??? ;D

Yep. I have followed this coin since the beginning and mined for a long time. I am very mixed on what they are doing. Part believes they do have a deal and are just trying to get their coins so they can profit. But then another part thinks they are just hoping these things happen. I dont know any more.

My guess is they're aiming to get on a bigger exchange together with the release of planned updates/releases.

VGC is currently listed nr 7 on Cryptsy...  :)

I've also noticed the network hashrate exploded a few days ago, just because of some speculation... Back to 'normal' now, but imagine what real news would do.  ;)

For those wondering, I know they plan to release:
- Android wallet (will automatically lead to previously mentioned businesses accepting VGC)
- Direct buy option (no bitcoin or exchanges needed)
- Wallet client update (don't know any details about this)
- I've also read on fb about a new website with a completely new service in crypto (which will take "VGC under it's wing")
- ... Other than that they've been keeping it very 'hush hush'

That's not the whole story. From what I can see they are trying to build something new and got rid of all the bad apples several months ago, completely re-branded and are now in closed beta. 
Then again it's not up to me to say what stays and what goes.  ;)

In my experience it just 'works'! Won't have the chance to test it 'in the field' soon myself sadly.  :D

I'm new to VegasCoin...wow you are sitting on a gold mine here. The name is perfect and if marketed aggressively enough for full adoption in Vegas well then Vegas Baby!

If you can get the big boy casinos on board then its moon and beyond permanently. It seems with the deep pockets in Vegas, why wouldn't they give this a shot?

VegasCoin will hit $100 a pop if the large casinos adopt. High rollers = high dollars.

Keep on knocking on doors and get the "big deal" and I will keep mining :)

It is Vegas so lining pockets isn't out of the question.

Need some help with wallet please.

version running 2.0.1.1

moved coins from pool to wallet. Coins hit wallet but will not confirm :(

Tried running -repair wallet as well as deleted \roam\vegas and resynced wallet. Nothing changed. Wallet is synced but coins still show unconfirmed.

Thanks, appreciate the help.

Hi and welcome,

Long time supporter here  ;) Nice read, with the exact long term vision I've been seeing since the start of VGC!

The problem with the current crypto community is that it's full of people trying to find a 'get rich quick coin' and want/expect it to happen overnight. They don't care about long term, or the coin itself... And that's a problem. VGC IS long term.  8)
Nobody seems to remember that BTC took YEARS to get where it's at right now and it's still FAR FROM mainstream or anything like it.

In my opinion VGC is the only coin I've stumbled upon that has a different future planned other than just providing another form of "decentralized, anonymous, fast, safe,... blabla" form of payment. In other words, they're not trying to compete with BTC like most coins, they're only trying to co-exist. And with the right connections and timing, I believe they will def succeed!

Funny how when nothing is happening people come and troll the threads, posting all kind of negativity. Now that the Android wallet is actually there, more is soon to follow... And yet the threads are quiet and the trading is average but stable. It seems like rumors, leaks and assumptions cause more 'disturbance' than actual news. Weird that is  ;)

Anyway I'd invite you to join us on cctalk too. Little more activity there. A small community, but bound to grow once this underdog shows it's true potential.

Ps.: I hope you fixed the problem mentioned before. If not, let me know. I'll get you in touch with one of the devs if necessary.

More like 0.5 BTC and even more @ Comkort. ;) A few large buys have very little impact in the long run. Only a couple of weeks ago VGC reached #63 on coinmarketcap.com. But dropped right down again the days after, because the trading isn't stable, yet... Real use of the coin will probably boost the popularity and with it the price and stability.

Sorry for not being here as much as the other forum, this system sometimes gives me login issues and I have also been very busy promoting the coin!

So far we have released our Android wallet, along with updating the windows wallet with a nice Vegas style GUI.  This week has been busy, but I still managed to sign up my own local advertising company and another clients Limo company to start accepting VegasCoin!

Also we have paid for some votes on cryptsy, and plan to do the same with BleuTrdae later next week.  Keep strong and know we are working hard in Las Vegas, Nevada everyday!

P.S.  Casino meetings are also set!, should have news later next month :)

Hello #VegasCoin community, I want to personally address the community and fans of VegasCoin.  I do want to thank everyone for their support, and also address my efforts for advancing the acceptance of VGC all over the Las Vegas, Nevada valley.

Due to our small development team, and prior projects we know some efforts could have been done better, but do understand we have put every ounce of extra energy and money into this project. If you have not heard or noticed by our official Facebook page, we have successfully signed up 4 local businesses ( http://vegascoin.co/businesses ) with a few more wanting us to teach them how to accept cryptocurrencies.  I only hold off adding them, because I want EVERY SINGLE business to get my hands on touch, and ensure the best quality and ease of use as possible.  Please show your support and start buying VGC on any of our exchanges, and just wait for the traction to start picking up towards the end of the year!  We have some really big fish, but as with anything it just takes time to perfectly ensure something on a larger scale.

Thank you everyone!

You are 100% Correct, that is why we are working hard to expand the places to spend VGC.  Most companies now are treating it as a coupon due to the low value at this time.  But the great part is, if they give you 10$ off a service or a 10$ free drink.. then we must be worth $1.... in time, oh in due time :D

This whole no charge back, and anonymous part is the true seller!  Plus we advertise any company willing to accept VGC 100% Free!

They normally only post on cryptocoin talk. Even then they do not post much. They say they are working on it but have not seen any real changes. But I also do not pay attention to this ocin that much. Busy with my own stuff and figure if they do come through with what they say they are working on then this coin will be a pretty nice coin.

Keep up the chatter people.

Vegascoin has the potential to own the Las Vegas scene more than any other alt.

The name alone is priceless and has lasting power.

Keep up the chatter people.

Vegascoin has the potential to own the Las Vegas scene more than any other alt.

The name alone is priceless and has lasting power.

Enjoy the current prices and accumulate!

Devs: Posting here would be great for awareness. Even just a once a week temperature check would be awesome.



I agree, with every single word. But especially that last sentence...  :D

What is happening with VGC, it has become almost worthless, dropped by 90% in the past week. I know a lot of people are stopping the mining of it and moving on. If some buyer support does not materialize this thing could be in the toilet.

Well what the devs said in crypto coin talk sure didn't make me warm and fuzzy about the coin. Also what ever happened to that car? Just an empty promise to try and get hype I guess.

Dev, step the F up and make some sort of statement.

This coin has gone from one with the most potential to shit in a months time.

Did we miss something here on btctalk?

Yep on cyrptocointalk they pretty much said they are trying but are busy with there own jobs. I know they started their own company I think it was marketing but not sure. I feel bad for any of those clients if this is what they get.

A quick update for those still interested:

VGC is not dead (yet).  8) There has been a bump in the road however. The main dev team kindly informed me that because of a setback with their company (daytime job) they had no option but to put VGC on hold. This means all money, time, resources and energy needed to be invested in keeping their daytime job. You have to keep in mind this coin was set up by two regular guys with a fulltime marketing job. No matter how much potential VGC has, they can't risk their own company for it. (yet)  ;D

On the plus side: (!)

- servers are still up and the network is still very stable
- more businesses are slowly but surely showing interest
- exchanges are showing quite few large trades since the last 'business' got added.  ;)

They ensured me once the company gets back on track (which should be pretty soon) the focus will be put back on VGC.

Rember: BTC took 4 years to 'BOOM' and still hasn't gone mainstream. VGC is barely year old, very barely... Think about it. It's VEGAS! It's patented! It's coming... Not today, not tomorrow, probably not this season or even year, but it's coming, it's VGC!

I have said this before, this forum gives me login issues all the time.  I tend to use the other crypto talk website more, to answer any questions and concerns please read the following.

When we started VegasCoin we never anticipated how much time and money this would be consuming.  We have put in well over $40,000 USD of our own money & Investor money to expand and grow the project.  During the past few months our company Brisk Advertising INC has been suffering due to panda 4.1 update.. this caused my monthly net profits to drop over 70%!   I have been trying to save my business everyday, and we have came though with almost every promise we have made.  Now the car, if your asking?.. The 1985 Corvette has had transmission issues, so I sold the car and plan to replace the idea with an even better car. I am only human and this is life, shit happens and I hope you all can understand that.  We have plans that if VGC hits a price point, we will be trying to acquire an old Ferrari.. Still nothing set in stone about what point that will be, but it is being talked about for a promotion.  But this is just a small promotion, what you should be talking about is our efforts to expand to more local businesses.

The main reason VegasCoin gained so much respect is our moodiest attitude towards the entire project.  I have never made a crypto coin, nor have my partners.  We have just noticed a huge increase in the volume over the past few days, this spiked the interest of some investors.  Allowing us to make plans this next week December 15th - 19th to go out and talk to around 3-5 businesses per day in the Las Vegas area about VegasCoin.

Now lets face it... VegasCoin is just like LiteCoin in most aspects.. we are nothing cutting edge and offer no new methods.  With that being said, we know our only option is to make this a local thing, that is why we plan to use VegasCoin as a coupon system.  Take one VGC here and get this, or some participating locations are willing to even accept it 100% same as cash.  Just recently I locked in a deal with one of the largest escort agencies in Las Vegas, they have already promised to treat VGC 100% same as cash.  This Las Vegas Escort agency provides around 200 beautiful girls and many websites to choose from.  We are helping them update their entire system and at the same time teach them how to use and accept the cryptocurrency.  

I feel with my sales record, this next week we should be seeing around 3-5 business per day.  That is a MAX of 25 businesses if we saw 5 everyday, I honestly think I can close around 50% of these businesses or more. Now if you know nothing about Vegas, then let me fill you in on how KICK back city works.  Everyone in this town pays for customers, to promoters, or ads, ect... it's just how this city works.  So when we as a team go out to talk with the businesses about accepting VegasCoin, we plan to say as follows:

" Would you like more customers?  And do you run any local coupons or promotions right now?  Well I am sure you know as most marketing or advertising works, your not only redeeming that said coupon your also paying for printing every month.  Plus paying the original marketing or advertising company.

I have a better way, and I want you to commit to try it!  It requires no upfront money and no monthly printing costs, just hear me out as I explain.  VegasCoin is 100% secure, fast, and has the potential to increase in value unlike most paper coupons.  Now I am sure you can provide a free drink or 10% off of your services for a person showing up with a VegasCoin?   Well just to explain, we are in no way profiting from this coupon system.  The acceptance of it is what makes its value grow.  There are no stock options in this, its all about the coins so as you accept and hold them you make the profits with everyone else involved.

Let me use strip clubs as an example, they pay around $50 - $100 per PERSON! that is just crazy to be -$100 on a customer right when he walks in the door.  You might ask well who gets paid that cash? The Promoter or VIP host who sent you, along with the driver.  Our plan is to try our best, but this is hard because you always have a driver... but we can for sure eliminate the promoter profits, passing those savings to the business and customer.  "

Now I could go on and on about this, but I feel by now you get the point and our goal ideas... look around Las Vegas right now, how many places accept Bitcoin?... I think I can count them on 2 hands, so if we can get 10+ businesses that should be a huge success for this upcoming week.

Once again I am sorry for the delay, and as always thank you for supporting our cause.  We are just trying to save businesses money and help customers in the Las Vegas area.  Please show your support by buying some VGC today, it really does encourage the Developers and Investors.

Thank you for making a statement, it is good to hear that VGC is still moving forward.

In regards to VegasCoin...godspeed! VegasCoin is still on of the best names out there and it seems the marketing possibilities are endless.

any nice update to make this Coin rise ?

I released exclusive info on crypto coin talk " So far we have an agreement with a Hosting Company to try and put VegasCoin in their platform and the owners of Game Player Rewards are also trying to find a way to incorporate VegasCoin!  As I have said before, anything big will take some time such as the GPR deal.  They have to test our platform in a LAB environment as they say, with techs trying to crash or cheat our system. If it passes we have a shot!  Also the hosting company is just trying to take their existing venues and ask that they all treat VGC as a coupon.  1 VGC = 1 free drink or 1 VGC = 10% off or 1 VGC = buy one get one 
 
Honestly I saw the big spike of buys a few weeks back, and I think it was the LAB techs lol  I am currently about to buy up a ton of VGC once I have some funds moved around. "

Same problem. I sent 40,000 to comcort and they will not confirm. As I live in Las Vegas I mined this non stop, as I wanted this to be our city coin. I just looked at the wallet and last upgrade was August 2014. Bryon, can you please help us?

There is not even a "wallet repair option". I have emptied the roaming/vegascoin folder except wallet.dat and it resyncs with same problem.

Byron, just tell us..have you given up on this?

I still think this coin has some great potential, they just need to hand it over to a full time dev and I am sure the community will continue with the strong support.

I think the marketing team is doing an awesome Job getting different businesses to accept the coin!

What we need is a dev with more time for this amazing project!

Its a shame, they did quite a bit of marketing work and even got local Vegas businesses involved. Decent community behind it and getting close to being listed on cryptsy. Its prime for a takeover from a competent dev if the original creators refuse to interact with the community.

I really hate to see this much potential wasted out of incompetence. It feels like the devs are too lazy to even communicate with the community anymore.
A little more ambition, commitment and investment with a little less paranoia and this could (still can - but chance is close to nothing) be something huge.

In my own humble opinion VGC could really thrive with functions like POS or POA. A wallet makeover and bug fix and 10,000,000 giveaway (YES 10M !! VGC needs to build a solid foundation again) split into lots of 10,000 for example to grow community just before hitting a REAL business. And this is just on the top of my head! There's so much stuff other alts are doing to promote their coin. Compared to them VGC didn't even try... All we hear are excuses. Such a damn shame.

First things first. Fixing the sync issue with several transactions. If this doesn't happen, nothing ever will for VGC.

The devs should pay someone to fix the sync issue if they can't do it themselves. VegasCoin's investors are losing money because of this.

I can tell you that the owner of VegasCoin.com who I have been in talks with since day 1 is planning to take over the coin.  I am not sure if his details, but I think he has a better shot then you do.  I plan to help hand over what apps, technology, and other resources I have already finished to best help him.  So far to date, we have over $40,000 USD invested into VGC development and promotions.  So I think someone trying to do this without my support, would be missing out on a great deal of progress.

Not to be poisonous, but I'm having a problem accepting the premise that you could simply take over the coin by announcing that you are taking over the coin. Can you explain how you come to this apparent conclusion? I was unaware it has been so simple this whole time.

Also, if you can do it, then what is it you are asking for, exactly? What do you need to hear before you would promise a professional resurrection? Because, so far it looks like you are asking the current serious users to allow you to scrap everything and start over. If the coin is not dead, you would like to kill it and create a new coin? Is that correct? I'm not following how you need anybody's vote to do that. If you can do that, then what is stopping you?

It is easy to take a coin over when it is dead. You just need the few people that own it and exchanges if it is on any to accept your fork.

Yes, as long as the coin is abandoned (open to definition) ANYONE can take full control over the coin. This coin is certainly abandoned as before this dev Yates had not logged on after Febryary 12th 2015. Only when I emailed him, and told him of my intentions he logged on. Out of respect for Yates, im going to give him 30 days to show solid proof that this coin is progressing and most importantly has a fully functioning block chain, and show some king of progress moving forward, otherwise Im taking it over. For those of you not in the know about community takeovers, its 100% legal as it is all open source and nobody owns the rights. I still dont understand what the hell cost $40,000. Im trying to think up SOMETHING and I cant. Ill wait the 30 days, and then its rock and roll Vegas style! The coin will be worth a mint. Im brilliant with money and retired at 42 in the computer business, and never have to work again. Stay tuned!

Why wait 30 days?  ;D

We've all been waiting for over 400 days and...well...you know...

Yates has clearly stated that there's zero effort being put into VGC atm. There was even talk about a 'takeover' on fb...
And I quote: "I look forward to any take over, but the fact is it wont really be a TAKE OVER.. more of a hand over lol, to someone who can run it better by devoting more time to the project and fans."

All I'm saying is the dev's are practicly handing it to you. No point in waiting to get started. Dedicated, steady and solidly climbing of course...  :D

Technical question as a 'nub' 8) Does the takeover include taking over the blockchain. In other words, will the current supply of VGC be included?
I imagine alot of people - like myself - are still holding some VGC and wonder what would happen with their current balance.
So would you plan taking over the coin or just the name?

I like the idea, I would suggest doing some kind of coin swap on the new chain for those long term supporters that did not sell when I suggested.

Maybe a 1 new for 8 old type swap to keep those long term supporters loyal ---- This of course depends on the supply and what is most fair.


I would also suggest getting away from Scrypt or SHA256 and go with Qubit or Quark -- Ocminers input on the Algo would probably be best.


I think 30-60 days for a takeover is more than reasonable

my 2 cents


Title: Re: [ANN] VGC - VegasCoin
Post by: vegasguy on June 05, 2015, 07:55:47 PM
The blockchain is frozen. So I have some decisions to make. Hardfork it and attempt to get chain going again, or do a coin swap. Most likley its going to stay scrypt. The original dev Yates DOES own the rights to a tiny part of this coin. He made some custom vegas chips. For the most part the coin is open source. I want to redo the wallet graphics, and Im  horrible with graphics, but I may have found a professional to hire. The best scenario Im shooting for is for everyone to retain their funds, including myself. So, Im going to do everything in my power not to start over at 0. Everything is in planning stages, so Im still writing a plan and talking with other professionals about my options.

When the wallet issues get fixed We could push to get on exchanges. Maybe set up a relaunch.

First things first, so mighter even be better to wait for some progress...  ;) Fixing blockchain issues and a wallet update for example. Adding some graphics and maybe even add POS? SDC and GAM have a great POS reward system. Implementing something similar with VGC would def benefit the value. I don't really know if this is technically possible, but it's something I've been begging for since the beginning of VGC. It just suits this coin as it's Vegas where the stakes are very high! :D

Its gonna be redone, and coin supply brought WAY down <1 MILLION coins, and POS added that will be double digits MAX (10%-50%).  It will be a POW/POS hybrid. Everything will be done to keep money supply as low as possible while still keeping interest using POS and POW mining for years. A coin swap MIGHT be done if the old coin is not too jacked up.

Bringing on a well known dev to make things run smooth. Wont mention name unless they want to reveal. Still working on final details.

What we know so far that wont change:
Algo: Scrypt
Brand new wallet written from ground up, new chain, new addnodes, new graphics
POW and POS hybrid
Mineable for years to come
VERY low coin count
Coin swap (if possible). The ratio will be extreme: something like 50:1 to bring money supply WAY down < 1 Mil

Bringing on a well known dev to make things run smooth. Wont mention name unless they want to reveal. Still working on final details.

What we know so far that wont change:
Algo: Scrypt
Brand new wallet written from ground up, new chain, new addnodes, new graphics
POW and POS hybrid
Mineable for years to come
VERY low coin count
Coin swap (if possible). The ratio will be extreme: something like 50:1 to bring money supply WAY down < 1 Mil


Vegas

Smart move on the coin swap, that way you keep the loyal community in the game.

50:1 sounds very reasonable to me

I would advise against scrypt or sha256 , but its your call of course

Agreed 50:1 is reasonable if the ratio of the supply is simular.

Its gonna be redone, and coin supply brought WAY down <1 MILLION coins, and POS added that will be double digits MAX (10%-50%).  It will be a POW/POS hybrid. Everything will be done to keep money supply as low as possible while still keeping interest using POS and POW mining for years. A coin swap MIGHT be done if the old coin is not too jacked up. Im assembling a team as we speak. Once again, I wont move fast, but everything will be QUALITY, QUALITY.

Hey, Vegas

I think you should use a variable POS in keeping with the Las Vegas spirit. Like LOTTO coin. Not to high, mind you, between 10%-!00%
on a yearly basis. And not based on network weight, so everyone gets a fair chance. We both know how whales take advantage of the smaller fish.
Once coin is up and running, probably would not be to hard to get listed at Cryptopia to start with. Also, I think the coin should be affordable for the masses.
We do not need billions of coins, but less than a million? Not so sure on that. Saturn squished down their coin amount, did not help keep the value up.
Another thing coin inflation can be somewhat controlled with difficulty fluctuations. Like HYP, TEK, and TRK. Also staking time can be used to control inflation.
Could also replicate the one arm bandit and get nothing on a stake amount from time to time. Well, maybe something, like 1%-100%
I will try and down load the wallet, and try to snag some from Comkort before they shut down.

Peace, Dennis

I was not going to spend much, since not sure what is going to happen as of yet. I do not think VGS is POS? Which would mean a fork.
Or a new block chain to swap old for new coins. Vegas is pretty ticked off at Spots! Not sure if anger was talking, or really going to take the
bull by the horns? Going to cost him some money for a dev, website, among other things. Plus needs to build this community back up. Which
is going to take some time to do. Vegas has a few people less than happy with him from several other ANN threads. Would not surprise me to
see some of them trolling and spreading FUD around, if he does go ahead and take control of this coin. If he does, definitely going to see things
from the side. Hope, Vegas can keep his temper in check. Making decisions based on emotions, usually not a good idea. Going to have to let the
flack, roll off his back and stay focused on the job at hand. I know he can build Vegas coin back up and then some. Has a great name, that is
recognizable. Millions, if not a billion people have heard of Las Vegas. I know millions of people visit Las Vegas every year. I really liked the
original dev's idea of using the coin like a coupon, for promoting various businesses in the area. People could buy the coins before coming out
to Las Vegas. What would be really cool, is to be able to redeem the coins for a coupon booklet. That has coupons for a multitude of various
businesses in the area. Could sell the coupon booklets for x amount of coins. Or QR codes for discounts at different businesses. A lot of people
have smart phones. Wallets now have android apps. With a little thought, has endless possibilities.
Just have to wait and see how things go forward from here.

I think you should take over this coin. You seem more interested than Vegas. My guess is he was blowing hot air at Spots.
He has been more active on another thread, that wants to restart up MMXIV, TEETH, and the old Gorilla Bucks wallets and block chains.

The thing I liked about VegasCoin was the small community that really stood by the coin for a long time. If I had the skill to take over a project like this its something I would consider seriously. My expertise is in community building and marketing. I sold most of what I had months ago when the price was perfect but I still have a few kicking around. VegasCoin was a project that could have been big

Guys I have been trying to work things out with the original dev Yates. I operate out of respect. When I originally wanted to takeover , I felt the coin was abandoned , and that Yates , just didnt care anymore about it. Yates and I got talking and I quickly realized that he did not want me alone taking over this coin. He talked about a partnership with him and another guy. He already told me he had many other ventures and just did not have the time to put into Vegascoin, yet he still didnt want to pass it on to me alone. I respected his decision, but at the same time, he was very slow to respond to all of my emails which told me, if I got into a partnership, everything would move at a snail pace. It felt like I would be doing all the work, because he didnt have the time. In the end Ive decided its best to leave this project alone as its more trouble than its worth, and I wont barge in and do a hostile takeover and have a conflict with Yates. At this time the coin is dead and will remain dead. I tried. Sorry.

If original dev is not interested in VegasCoin, I see there is no reason the community can not take over. Would not be the first time a community took over a coin.
I personally vote for the community to take over the coin. The B.S. from dev having login issues, is just that. Not real hard to stay logged in forever. Not sure of
why blockchain is stuck? I understand you need new wallets. I downloaded the wallet from link Vegas put in this thread. But wallet crapped out on me.
Had purchased 50k at Comkort before they shut down. Since I could not get wallet to work, sold them, before shut down. For about $400, or so we could resurrect
this coin. TheAltCoinGuys.com have very reasonable rates, packages are fairly complete. $300 for wallets, blockchain, and website. Block Explorer and rich list, ect. $60.
Seed/Masternode set up $27 every 3 months. Only leaves some graphic designs to be paid for. And I know a graphic designer, we could get graphics pretty cheap.
I would kick in some money to set this up. We could start from scratch, or use current block chain? I would like to see POW/POS, though not sure what algo is best
suited for this? I do not know if we should go with current block chain, or start a new block chain? I also liked having at least 10 million coins to start with for bounties
and give aways. Like faucets to get the coin rolling with publicity. Might even need to start a new thread? Though not sure how one would go about it? I think 3-4 of
us are serious about this. So, speak up and throw some ideas or suggestions out here, or let VegasCoin die? It is now up to the community to decide on the next
step, or steps!

I am keeping the chain running and currently have 4 active connections with the wallet open

Might be good for a few more people to throw 1-2 mh at the chain until we get listed on Cryptsy (currently in the top 15)

I guess my early voting helped raise some awareness of Vegas coin at Cryptopia.
I saw it near the bottom of the voting list, back in late June. I was hoping that
getting it off of the bottom, more people would vote for it. I was hoping it would
get listed before Comkort shut down. Since I could not get the wallet to work.
Thought I could transfer coins to Cryptopia. So do you have a working wallet yet?
Must have, otherwise Cryptopia would not have listed it. DUH! Think I will try and buy
some again. Hopefully, I will not have to dump them again, since I could not get wallet
to work right. Maybe can get Vegas coin back into the spotlight again!

Peace, Dennis

My vegascoin wallet has always worked, it just has problems that need fixed. I have over 100k stuck in blockchain as unconfirmed.

We have a few people interested in the coin, I think you will start to see some buy support in about a week. The main problem is the original developers spend no time with the community.

This coin is really ripe for conversion to a new form

Nothing about this coin has ever been fast, so don't expect things to move fast

That is the problem with POW coins that nobody mines, they don't work.

Get it :D Proof of Work, don't work!
Just speculating now, but I'm betting you trying to send those 5000 to the exchange to dump ASAP?

Well, the blockchain appears to have stopped at 14:23:55 CDST. My wallet was accepting coins until then.
It behooves me, if they do not want the coin, why they do not want to let someone take it over? Makes no
sense! I imagine they own a sizable chunk of the coin. It is open source code, probably on github. It is still
there. Does anyone know how to get in touch with dev? I know thefix kept chain moving, I am guessing by
mining it. There is enough coins to fork and make it a POS coin. Though some people may still want to mine it?
Cryptopia is not going to keep it to long if chain is not moving. The AltCoinGuys, might be able to fork it and
still keep the coins intact. I am not to sure, but that is an option, if dev does not want to work with us.
It would cost $350+ to set up a new coin. I could contact them and see what they could do. Not sure
exactly what is possible? Either to fix problems, or start a new coin using the same name, with a slight
variation. It is really, B.S. that if they have no interest in getting the coin going that they cannot turn the
reins over to the community. I bought a domain name, VegasCoins.com a while back. Starting a new thread,
is pretty easy. The only thing left would be, what can be done with current blockchain? I think it would be,
in their best interest to help by releasing their interest, or allowing the community to take it over. With their,
blessings! They have been sitting on the toilet to long! Time to dump, or get off of toilet. I personally do not
want to cut them out of the picture, but they could work with us here. Then everyone could win! If they want,
to sell it, then name your price. It is now at a crossroad, let it die and lose everything. Or salvage it, and let
the community have a shot of reviving VegasCoin. thefix and a few others have kept it going longer than it would
have gone. So, some of us would like to see VegasCoin continue on. It is a shame they refuse to address this
issue. Their actions, or lack of them, says they are not interested in keeping VegasCoin going. I am voting on taking
the coin over, I do not mind putting in some time and money, to revive VegasCoin, it is a great name that is
recognized around the world. I am not a millionaire like Vegasguy, do not have a lot of time and money. But, I am
resourceful, and might be able to pull a rabbit or two out of my hat. I will leave this here to see if anyone else is
interested in doing something with VegasCoin.

Peace, Dennis

Hey, thanks, thefix

Above and beyond the call of duty! I am guessing the only way chain keeps moving is by mining?
And no one but, you are doing any mining of Vegas coin. So, if no one mines chain stops. Sounds,
like Vegas coin would need a hard fork to make a POS/POW coin? Is there anything wrong with chain,
other than, no one wants to mine. Because of low price, not making it profitable? What is the money
supply? Have not been able to get that info, in console: "get info" The wallet definitely could use a
make over/upgrade. Sent Byates, an email, but kinda doubt, I will get a reply? Maybe the crypto gods,
will smile on us. I would not keep mining by yourself. Maybe this might get Byates attension? Probably,
not, has not posted since June. Thanks, thefix for trying! I am going to check into a few things to get
a better idea on what options are available.

SPECIFICATIONS
Scrypt Algo.
100 million coins.
120 second block time.
30 coins per block.
Re-target every 1 day.
NO PREMINE

Looks like around 30 million mined so far, people have reported issues with sending large amounts and never receiving it. I have sent up to 30,000 chunks with no issue, so I cant confirm this.

Let us know if you hear anything back from Byates

I will let you know, if I hear from Byates. Probably have to get creative, and do some research to get some more info on Byates.
I checked github and found the specs above, also phoenixz had updated wallet from Franko coin. defaced is Franko dev on Bitcointalk.
Thanks, for actual coin amount, was under the impression there were a 100 million already. Only 30 million+ coins in existence,
one would think price would be higher than 1 satoshi! Bought a million VGC at Cryptopia. Been putting them in wallet, 3k at a time, as I
read in this thread some people had trouble depositing 5k+. Will try and keep you updated on my progress.

One option is to create a new coin/token with Ethereum  https://www.ethereum.org/token

We could give the coin a new name and Build a better community around it

Maybe do a swap of like 1 new coin for every 5000 vegas and burn the swapped coins

Ethereum still needs to mature a bit before it becomes more user friendly

Right now I am mining it on linux and its a pain to setup for the average user

Once it is more mature, I expect it to be a very solid wallet and platform

I have a few other ideas to reward current holders for sticking with it and letting the coins stay in the wallet.

Brandon, emailed me back. And is possibly interested in working us, and give us some control over this thread.
I understand he does not want to give up full control. As he wants to protect the original investors. i.e. The coin
holders and original start up crew, Sven and Kerrick. They put in a lot of their time, money and effort into this.
I think if we all work as a team, we can get this rocking and rolling again. Personally, I do not like to see effort get wasted.
This community might be small, but has a lot heart. If we can get Vegas coin rolling in the right direction, some of the old
community will come back. And new community members will come also. If we started a new coin, would have to start from
scratch. If we can pull this off, then a second coin would be easier. Building off of the success of this coin. Otherwise,
going to be more involved, with time, effort and money. I think starting off with something simpler, would allow us to get
more people involved. Means more awareness and exposure. At least that is my thought on this. Though, I would like to
see Vegas coin be a hybrid POW/POS coin. So, as not to have to rely on strictly mining to move the chain. Gets more
people involved and stops some of the dumping, driving price down. I guess will wait for Brandon's reply and go from there.

scratch. If we can pull this off, then a second coin would be easier. Building off of the success of this coin. Otherwise,
going to be more involved, with time, effort and money. I think starting off with something simpler, would allow us to get
more people involved. Means more awareness and exposure. At least that is my thought on this. Though, I would like to
see Vegas coin be a hybrid POW/POS coin. So, as not to have to rely on strictly mining to move the chain. Gets more
people involved and stops some of the dumping, driving price down. I guess will wait for Brandon's reply and go from there.

Peace, Dennis

Hope you didn't hold your breath,lol

Good thing, I did not hold my breath, I would be dead now like coin! Brandon emailed me back and I said would help.
But, never heard back from him, after that. So, I guess Brandon is not interested in keeping VegasCoin alive?
Not even sure wallet is working? computer shut down 6 weeks ago, to install updates. Never opened wallet after that.

Peace, Dennis

One option is to create a new coin/token with Ethereum  https://www.ethereum.org/token

We could give the coin a new name and Build a better community around it

Maybe do a swap of like 1 new coin for every 5000 vegas and burn the swapped coins




Would could offer a swap for BARR, if there was a working VegasCoin block explorer.

We had the same idea that thefix was talking about - start a new coin, burn the old coins, and give everybody the coins on the new blockchain to replace the coins they burned.  Pretty much a standard swapover.  We were going to do it for Fractalcoin, to try and save it before it completely dies.  He mentioned building it on Ethereum, we were going to do it on NXT.

But if we did, then what?  We take a dying coin, transfer it to a new blockchain, and now it runs better.  But what's the point?  If nobody was interested in it before, they probably still won't care.   

thefix talked about reducing the supply 5000 to 1.  If there are less coins, each one is rarer and potentially more valuable.  That's a good idea, but there's a bigger problem:  you can reduce the supply of VegasCoins by 1/5000, but you can't reduce the overall supply of Altcoins.  You still have 1 VegasCoin and over 1000 other altcoins, so it's still not rare and doesn't have as much potential to be valuable. 

There's a limited amount of Bitcoin being spent on altcoin exchanges, and it's spread too thin.  50 people buying Vegascoin, 5 people buying Fractalcoin, 1 guy still buying URO.  500 people buying the latest hyped-up coin, and next week 200 of them will be buying something else while the rest lost all their money and are stuck holding last week's bag.

That's 300 people who could have been buying VegasCoin, but they won't be buying anything until they can get rid of what they already bought.  But with 300 people selling and only 20 people buying, they're out of luck.  Either they continue holding and are never able to re-invest any of that money, or they sell for a loss and have less to spend.  And whoever they sell it to probably won't ever get their money back either.  So each pump-and-dump removes investors from the crypto markets, and we can hardly afford to lose them. 

Each bad coin takes money away from our coins, and we all lose. 

The problem is too many altcoins diluting the market.  So instead of starting Fractalcoin 2.0, burning the old coins and redeeming them for new coins, we decided to do it for multiple coins.  BARR:  Burning Altcoins for Redemption and Reduction.  We're going to get rid of Fractalcoin, Keycoin, and Sapience, and redeem them for BARR.  The swap goes for 1 month, and then we'll do other coins.  If we burn enough, we've subtracted all those coins from the market, bringing their 10 or 20 users and adding them all together into BARR. 

Every time we burn enough of an altcoin's supply to completely remove it from the market, all remaining altcoins become rarer and potentially more valuable.  If we don't burn enough of a coin to completely remove it from the market, it continues with a lower supply and probably a higher price.  Either way, the holders benefit and the market benefits.  And the coins we burn can never be pumped-and-dumped again. 

Since we're starting with the coins we already have bags of, we know we'll be able to significantly reduce the supply of those coins.  Hopefully once people see us clearing out coins, they'll want to burn their own coins too.  Every coin we absorb makes BARR bigger and thins out the market at the same time.

Thank you for the quick response, I like the concept and I think you are on to something with that idea. We need less Junk coins and this may be the way to deal with that issue.

Post by: BARR_Official on October 28, 2015, 03:43:05 AM
lol, I saw you quoted thefix but I missed the fact that you are thefix.  Didn't mean to refer to you in third person.

No need to thank me for the quick response - after launch, an altcoin dev's #1 job is posting on bitcointalk.  I'm sure people spend a little time coding wallets and stuff, but what else is there?  If they can't even post frequent encouragement on their own thread, what CAN they do?

My coin is on the NXT platform, so I don't have to do any coding.  But I do have a lot of work to do before launch, and most of it is just clicking and typing on the internet.  I've been working on BARR a few hours every day, reviewing each coin at CoinMarketCap.com to see which ones could be eligible for BARR redemption.  Hundreds and hundreds of coins, and probably half of them don't even have a block explorer. 

The more coins I look at, the worse it gets.  People have no idea how soon most of these coins will completely stop functioning.  There are coins - still being traded on exchanges - that haven't had a post in their ANN for over a year.  If there's not one person in the world who will take 30 seconds once a year to type a few words about a coin, who do you think will run a node for it 24 hours a day?

But if a coin dies, then at least it's not draining resources from the market.  The bigger problem is coins that do have 5 people who care enough to run nodes - if a coin has even 2 bagholders who refuse to give up, the coin might never go away.  They have no way out, and there's not enough BTC on offer even if they wanted to dump it all.  But there's enough BARR.  If we can give them a way out, they'll be back in the game.

In the first 24 hours, we swapped 43% of the entire supply of Sapience AIFX.

We also swapped almost 30% of all Fractalcoins and Keycoins.

At the same time, we raised and supported the price of all 3 coins across 5 markets, allowing people to sell their coins if they weren't interested in swapping.

We have already burned about $18,000 worth of altcoins.

http://Vegascoin.vegas/ (http://Vegascoin.vegas/) now exists. Nobody seems to notice or even care. That is perfectly fine, for now. It was effortless to climb up into the top ten in the Google search results. There is no plan to put any more than minimal effort into it between now and when we see Bitcoin crash to less than $50 USD.

It will be a listing for rare American coins. Prices are in VGC at a fixed exchange rate to the face value of the coin. There is a cute play on words, offering "Cold, hard cash" for vegascoin, but the exchange rate is ridiculous in terms of USD and the coins can be considered to be cold, hard cash because they are currency made from metal.

It is reasonable to believe this model will keep out of the parameters of what can be considered to be any form of money laundering. The goal is to simply exist until the domain has any value. This is not expected to happen for years, if ever.

Vegascoin.vegas will create the market condition that it is cheaper to use USD to buy VGC and then use VGC to buy silver than it is cheap to use USD for buying the silver directly. This has a benefit for the seller because selling silver for VGC is cheaper than buying bitcoins and driving the price up when using the bitcoins to get VGC.

A recovery in the VGC price will make it irrational to pay the VGC price and that is when gold coins can be added to the site at the same exchange rate. This domain will be used as a market that only makes sense when VGC is tanked in price.

It would be nice if someday this domain can be sold for the new version of the vegascoin if the old coins are replaced by another genesis block. It would also be great to find a way if any possible profits could be used to help finance http://subzeromission.org/ (http://subzeromission.org/). If this becomes a real business, then it is hoped SubZeroMission can be gifted 7.77% ownership.

        I noticed that and a four bitcoin volume that is really insane for this coin. I am not sure what is going on but a 33166.70 % jump is worth keeping an eye on. I have also noticed that the hash rate and difficulty have gone up quite a bit recently along with interest. I have heard nothing of any recent interest in a takeover or anything else that could warrant such a surge in price.

I was wondering the same thing as price has jumped. Today was in the top 5 at Cryptopia.
Seems someone is buying a lot for reasons unknown. I just checked the thread to see if
someone knew why the sudden interest. Someone has some kind of plan for this coin.
Scooping up as much as they can, before letting cat out of the bag. Maybe should fire up
my wallet again? Someone is up to something, just hope it is good! Will have to keep my eye on this!

Peace, Dennis

You never know with VegasCoin, when the coin looks like it has taken its final breath it always seems to resurrect.

It will be interesting to see how things pan out with this latest spark in the coin and mining.

Its hard to say what is going on, could be manipulation, a takeover with possible coin swap or someone being foolish.

Title: Re: [ANN] VGC - VegasCoin
Post by: Vegascoin.vegas on February 07, 2016, 02:16:27 AM
No. That event was nothing as spectacular as it would seem.

As mentioned before, VegasCoin.Vegas is for sale. It can be purchased with a cash offer for the domain plus 10,000,000 VGC. So the new owner would be guaranteed no less than 10% control of the crypto. And if the block explorer was working, then anybody could have seen the wallet was 700,000 shy of the promised 10,000,000 VGC.

Selling for 2 or 3 satoshi trades pretty much signifies the bottom price. If BTC surged, then VGC cannot be traded any lower. If BTC crashes, then interested parties may step in and clean up what what they can catch is still available by sellers who neglect to manage their order prices. At this time, VGC can be almost viewed to be functioning as an options instrument for movements in the price of BTC.

It was very cheap to cover the VGC shortfall at rock bottom prices. Unexpectedly, a small rush of somebody dumping VGC resulted in buying more than what was calculated beforehand. Too much BTC was purchased to finance the VGC purchased and approximately $50 USD or less was left over after the 10,000,000 goal was reached.

The price ran up to 0.00001000 because spending $50 USD was all it took to reach that price. What is the benefit for holding any crashing BTC in an altcoin exchange? There were large gaps in price between very small and very few sell orders. Never was there 4+ BTC of volume. The stuff you people read and believe is mostly illusion and bad information.

VegasCoin.Vegas has no serious plans for the domain or plans for the coin until after BTC crashes to be less than $50 USD. It is just a hobby business until then. Nobody is scooping up as much as they can. There is no cat in any bag. The business is aware what the price needs to be to "break even." So, there may be more small and affordable purchases if only to make it appear breaking even because that is an easy and simple thing to do. This is not a hostile takeover, but it is not impossible to happen. When (or if) Cryptopia would be abandoned and be no more, then VegasCoin.Vegas would be the last VGC exchange to exist and this would be a takeover by forfeit.

The rare silver coins for sale at VegasCoin.Vegas are a steal at current prices. There is a reason why dimes and nickles are not listed at this time. It would be cheaper to put ten or twenty dollars in a BTC ATM and restore the price than it would cost to give a customer free shipping.

VegasCoin.Vegas is opposed to the way Cryptopia and all other altcoin exchanges have built their markets. Any future plans would involve placing orders in USD prices and not BTC prices.

http://www.vegaspay.co/ (http://www.vegaspay.co/)
http://www.vegaspay.com/ (http://www.vegaspay.com/)
http://www.vegaspay.vegas/ (http://www.vegaspay.vegas/)

These domains are now for sale at http://www.vegascoin.vegas/ (http://www.vegascoin.vegas/).

Taking these domains came to mind because there were parties in favor to ask for the whole surrender of the coin to a new dev team. There was some action to force the issue and the effort simply put many people in a bad mood.

Instead of coming in and wanting to take claim to the whole project, any interested developer could have noticed that the keyword "vegaspay" was almost non-existent and probably was never used at all on the internet. Any new developer had the blank slate opportunity to create a new cryptocurrency called VegasPay and match it up into direct competition up against VegasCoin.

That would have been much less infuriating to all the parties involved if VegasPay would have been pursued instead of nearly bullying VegasCoin away from the development team. I took that opportunity away because it seems all this chest pounding looked silly.

Considering there is a market of users who like Apple Pay and Samsung has their Samsung Pay, it is not too wild to assume that eventually Vegas Pay could have been created by a large corporate entity.

I am sitting on these domains and they will only be sold for VGC prices. I have the wallet large enough to cover the purchase price. From that position, this means any altcoin markets, miners, block explorers and public ledgers would not even be needed. A workaround is to sell the wallet, covering the purchase price in terms of VegasCoin. That's looking like the only possible way the VegasPay domains will sell in terms of VegasCoin prices at this time.

I've discontinued trying to sell silver at the website. Even when VGC was unable to reach the price of 5 satoshis, nobody was interested to spend $12 USD worth to take a $300 dealer price coin with free shipping. This makes me wonder if VGC is dead but not necessarily worthless.  In early 2017 I hope to put gold for sale in VGC prices at http://www.vegascoin.vegas/ (http://www.vegascoin.vegas/)

Will you fix the current wallet or just start a new coin and swap out?

Maybe change the algo and add POS?

Hi
Was very excited to read about the relaunch.  ;D

Quick question(s):

Is it still possible to sync the old wallet?
I have a wallet file with a fair amount of VGC.
Installed the old wallet
No connections = no sync = no total balance

Are there any working nodes? Explorer?

Cheers and good luck with relaunch!

I was able to swap. I believe that the dev wallet now contains more than 20 million VGC or 20% of the final supply. IMHO he has no need to keep those out of the market after the buy back is closed and discontinued. VGC is cornered by the buyers and pretty much positioned to be firmly under the boot of VEGAS.

I traded 18.4% of total supply VGC and now I have 7% total supply of VEGAS.

I was told it will be another couple months before everything will be ready. An automated system would be nice because it could create demand. It is my belief that I have been the only buyer in the last 2 years. And now we see the price precipitate to only one satoshi because I am not buying anymore.

I am considering offering my own swap if there is no progress in the next month or so. But my swap would be one VGC for one VEGAS. So people should probably wait or should reach Brandon.

Remember it is important to see the token in your wallet. If you can't see the token then you don't know it was deposited. There is a learning curve.

Novaexchange probably would not know anything about the swap because they don't support ETH tokens.

There has only been one trade so far and a contract was written to support it. It placed the value of my VEGAS wallet around $600K USD. Writing contracts in Solidity will probably be the next big thing for VEGAS development. Maybe an exchange that supports ETH would be the next step. So far I have not found a phone app that supports any tokens at this time.

You can see a record of all trades by watching the VegasCoin contract in your wallet.

You are working on Stop Trump Coin?

I wonder what would happen to that coin if he was actually stopped? Was there a Stop Hillary Clinton Coin? If so, how is that doing after she is not our president? Wouldn't that coin be deceased because it would suffer the same fate as her campaign?

If you need a Stop Trump Coin at the same time nobody needs Stop Hillary Coin, would that be a sign that Trump is doing very well? If not, then maybe I should create Stop Ralph Nader Coin. Why not?

Stop Ross Perot Coin... or wait. Clintons would not like that coin. They may need him to run again if Hillary gives it another try.

Anyway... I am hoping a boom in the economy would translate to be a boom for Las Vegas within a year. Anything that helps the economy would be good.

The first version of Vegascoin had a value that was overwhelmingly valued at the direction in movement for price of BTC. I like to think a boom in Las Vegas will improve Vegascoin's potential. So I am hoping Trump does well.

Is anyone having a problem with transactions that never confirm? The only way I can get funds through is to split them into transactions of about 5000 VGC each. Any larger transactions get stuck and show 0 confirms. Note the oldest set of transactions have been stuck at 0 confirms for a month.

I can't see any massive blockchain reorganisations that would invalidate my mined blocks, nor does the client complain about coins already spent (I did a rescan anyway).

Any ideas?


edit: I see there's 334 transactions sitting in the mempool, so I guess it's not just me...

Vegascoin has an issue when the number of input transactions gets too high and the transaction gets stuck in the chain. If you are mining, its best to send no more than 5000 at a time at 15 vgc per block reward. When the block reward was 30 vgc you could send 10,000 without issue. I have 100's of thousands of vgc stuck in the chain due to this bug.

I reported this issue back in Dec. 2014. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=466312.msg9984347#msg9984347

I reported this issue back in Dec. 2014. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=466312.msg9984347#msg9984347

I'm having a look at the source to see if I can hack in some changes to get my client to incorporate those transactions into a block I mine, but I suspect the issue may be something silly, like the client being able to create a transaction that never gets accepted by the network because it's too big. I looked at a few random transactions in the mempool and they're all 64k+ in size; quite large and complex.

I do have a way of recovering the stuck coins, restoring the balance of the stuck transactions to the wallet, but it's fairly tedious, and requires modifications to the source. If my attempts at allowing larger transactions fail then I should be able to help people recover their VGC (for a nominal donation :) )

It's important to note that if I am able to successfully incorporate the zombie transactions they WILL confirm and the coins will no longer be recoverable from your wallet. If you sent a bunch to Comkort in 2015 (or whatever) and your transaction is in the mempool (eg you start the client and it resends the outstanding transactions to the mempool), the transaction-in-limbo will become binding.

Post by: almightyruler on June 17, 2017, 02:20:37 PM
Okay, I have figured it out. A fair few transactions went through once the client started up, more than I intended. Nothing was happening for several minutes, then suddenly a bunch of mempool transactions arrived and the blocks went out before I noticed.

A total of 40 mempool transactions have now been incorporated into mined blocks. 34 of them (about 300k VGC total) were to Qh7MF7s8qcGYfL6V7RpThpQ4zM2EsA9mSD. I really hope that's a current, usable address, and the confirm hasn't just effectively burned those funds.

For the moment I've reverted back to the default client behaviour, whilst I can figure out where to go from here.

I need people to tell me if they want any further transactions stuck in limbo (and, going forward, any future transactions above 5000 VGC) to be confirmed? Or are they years old and sent to addresses which are no longer in use, like comkort or allcrypt? If it's the latter then we need to recover coins from your wallet before I continue clearing the backlog.

If my actions today have helped you at all, please consider donating to my address -> QV6itTAzGMtyRXyRuzpjYHkHwgjN2nLMUp



edit: my mined blocks ended up orphaned, so presumably the 40 incorporated transactions have been released back into the mempool.

Please reply ASAP if you have stuck funds sent to an address that's no longer in use.

I presume you mean that you still have your VGC wallet? If so, I can recover the funds for you. As mentioned above it's a little tedious, and does require a bit of messing around with source code modifications - if VGC supported exporting and importing of wallets it would be easier - so I would need your wallet.dat file, and a valid VGC address (from a DIFFERENT wallet - eg an exchange deposit address) to send the recovered funds to.

I'm making the offer in this thread so it's out in the open and no one accuses me of trying to scam. The offer is open to anyone who has stuck funds. PM me so we can figure out a secure way of transferring the wallet.

----

To do in the near future:

1. Permanently enable incorporation of larger transactions into mined blocks (any stuck transactions sent to no-longer-used addresses must be recovered by then)

2. If there is sufficient interest, compile an updated Windows client. No major changes requiring a fork, just a maintenance release with newer libraries, updated checkpoints, minor bugfixes, etc.

Ok Im leaving VGC alone completley. Im creating "Las Vegas" (VGS) coin a competitor, and will even ask Nova to create a VGC/VGS trade in case people want one coin or the other.  Miners will mine VGC, and may want to sell to buyers looking for "Las Vegas coin" which will be much more expensive and POS only, and will buy VGC to buy VGS.  I want a create a win win. I can easily fix the 5000 coin limit on VGC, and unlock all stuck coins in VGC but the community has made it VERY clear "Leave VGC alone", and I will do just that.

 

Until then here is your proof that Las Vegas coin truly exists. The code is only 95% complete. Do NOT USE!!!

 

It has Masternodes, darksend, instant X, stealth addresses, POW and POS @ 25%, and a mere 240,000  *IF* everyone swaps their fly for "Las Vegas coin".

The former is still working just fine, apart from the issues with sending large transactions. The github link on the latter is 404 so I guess that may have died.

If you want to send your VGC to an exchange, do it 5000 at a time.

142k VGC is worth approximately 0.011 BTC at novaexchange.

You should be able to send funds without needing to fully sync. You just need to be synced far enough to confirm your existing transactions - whatever it was that got your 142k into your wallet.

is this coin still alive? what's the current status/future plans?

Yes, it can still be mined, transacted, exchanged.

The main issue (as I see it) is that the client will create transactions that a default mining setup will never incorporate into a block - rather than aborting with a "Transaction too large" error - so there is some risk of more complex transactions never confirming. This is not the only coin with the issue.

There are a lot of issues with this coin. The devs are not around much and do not seem to care about vegascoin anymore to do any improvements. They are trying to swap out vgc for an eth token called Vegas, but I do not think that is going well either.

I keep a full node up and still mine occasionally. VGC is still traded at Novaexchage.

thanks for the reply mate(s)! I was thinking maybe the idea needs an overhaul and wanted to think about a concept more deeply but didn't have the time, so just in short, i think the coin still has potential because of the name and the idea to utilize it for the casinos in las vegas. But by just being a payment method there is no big reason for casinos to adopt it when btc etc is available, other than marketing and bonuses which is nice but can be just done with another coin.

How about doing the opposite and making the casinos NEED to adopt this coin. By bringing something new and innovative to rewrite how gambling and playing in casinos is done. Instead of the old systems and the way the different games are built, where i think one needs to trust the casino that the machines or roullette or whatever games are fair or have no tricks (they are probably regulated to make sure of that), or the way the payments are handled etc, bringing the revolution of blockchain, trustless systems and ease of payment processing etc to that industry would make a huge difference. Maybe creating a platform where algorithms of the different games are programmed, the slots give out the percentage of time required, open source to establish trust. the players will be interacting with the games and playing on the platform directly, their winnings directly paid to their chip-address on the blockchain.

I'm just rambling some ideas, but maybe you can see where I'm going with this. I have no concrete brilliant ideas (yet hehe) but maybe together if you think there is a merit to this view maybe we can come up with some cool ideas and a concept for something to be built. in that case yah migrating to ETH or something similar where all needed programming is possible.
what do you think?

hey if we can come up with something cool, maybe the project can be about implementing that and building a Casino in Las Vegas with the new technology, funded by investors in the token, and bringing the revolution to the industry while making profits in the casino and helping other ones to adopt using the technology.. 
Optimistic dreams I know :P

I believe this is the way to go....
I was thinking maybe we need a lightning network so the casinos/gaming machines all have super fast transactions. This could possibly include an exchange (fiat and bitcoin or whatever).... I always imagined in the future a physical crypto exchange location along the lines of what a Vegas sportsbook looks like with the marketcaps/charts up on the wall....

I think the Ethereum idea is way too risky and will slow (or kill) adoption, from what I have heard this coin needs significant more Mining power to support a network like this into the future, I think Solar mining would alleviate the operating costs of mining.... Our network needs to find some way to get the mining happening at that level so network speeds are not hurt anytime when a major miner goes offline or takes a break.

Imagine VGC at $100 a coin... It is not far fetched!!! You see how Coinbase offers $10 to referrals/referrers for buying $100 woth BTC... Because they got in early.. Manipulate the numbers.... THIS can happen. see Litecoin still going strong.... We should not go to POS or ethereum, in my opinion.... I think a kickstarter and some PR would kick this coin to the moon, for sure....

But the developers have given their all, I mean, look at the beautiful website and the fact this coin made it to some good exchanges during its infancy (unfortunately those exchanges arent around anymore, which is why we need to keep in mind the long term costs of running this coin and making developments.... and dont put the developers down, there is A LOT of factors to think about, especially getting this coin adopted FOR REAL in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is no joke making sure a lightning network is secure and mining is up and stable and exchanges want to list the coin for free (possibly) rather than making us all pay to get it listed everytime an exchange goes down... JUST STAY POSITIVE, lets keep it going and pump it to $100 or more with the intent of a stable network and stable growing currency...

I have a website in the works that will be accepting VGC, Im sure a lot of you also plan to accept it.... Payment gateway is another hurdle to speed up adoption (but this could all be part of the VGC lightning network/exchange....

yah i understand Ethereum is also still very slow, 300tx per second but EOS is going to have tens of thousands tx per second. I don't know much about lightning network etc, but I think those are specifications we will need to define at a later stage after we get a clear picture of what the VGC platform should be able to do if we decide to build such a thing.

I'm thinking along the lines of this question: Can we incorporate a Las Vegas casino with all it's different processes onto a programmable blockchain platform (ie with smart contracts)? processes of a casino being the algorithms of the games themselves, receiving payment and handing out chips (probably not needed at all but instead using VGC themselves as the chips for the bets), via the smart contract of a game when it's played and a player wins, the profits are paid to his address automatically etc. I'm not very familiar with casino details, but maybe those of you who know more can provide a better breakdown of the different functionalities of a casino that we would need to build into the VGC environment. And then we can go about it from here..

Like do you guys think such a solution would make the operation of a casino much cheaper if payment processes got automated via smart contracts? Also If the games were incorporated into smart contracts so that anybody can check for the fairness of the games, or create new games, do you think that would be a new good idea for the industry?
If you think so then maybe we can do that, and then either partnering with casinos or opening one of our own using this new tech, with much lower costs because the entire casino could be automated no need for much personnel and it would be attractive to customers because of the shiny new world it offers. Maybe at some point in the future they will be gathered around a virtual table of roulette or some new games created by the community using VGC :)

Earlier, i said  i think we need a lightning network but after reading more about what a lightning network actually is, I think it needs to be more like a central bank (i said lightning network because the system needs to be able to verify transactions instantly, these transactions could be broadcast to the VGC blockchain but since they are accounted for centrally (or using some type of sidechain to track all transactions/accounts). users dont need to wait for confirmations.)

I like the idea of games using ethereum. But if these tokens are going to pay out there needs to be some sensible accounting plan.
If the central bank also offers a coin exchange and payment processing and accounting, there are a lot of options, most casinos have a club card that holds their points. each person can have all their various tokens on the card. A lot of ways that could go.

i would like to see it get to that point when people come on vacation, keep coins in an account and the following year and their money is worth more and they come back. It could really become a thing.

yah VegasCoins on your VGC card to use at the casinos while verifying and seeing the transactions on your mobile. even gambling in the casinos without being there using your phone and apps and your VGC. I don't know if there is power behind this coin, what are the devs upto, is there community support? I mean this thread is since 2014 and only 22 pages to now. the idea is novel and could get somewhere if serious development and support were behind it, otherwise, the next big thing is being developed already somewhere else and VGC will be obsolete soon..

this week trading at nova exchange has been heating up.
they even added markets for VGC/ETH , VGC/LTC , VGC/Moon , and VGC/ESP

sell orders are thin right now and the price could go up significantly on VGC/BTC at any time.

I read back through your posts and like those ideas creating new ways to gamble, it could be integrated throughout.... going further with my idea of a "central bank" (critical for long term mass adoption, so that cards/accounts available to be used by anyone)... the casino could release or help release new currencies (ultra fair launches so people would become long term supporters), get the best developers, and go big, pre-announce all launches, etc... the exchange could have investment funds running bots, people could "bet" (trade) on activity or lend/bet on trading bots/funds, etc, etc... so there would be a crypto banking aspect.... A "Central Bank" is the only way to protect the currency and make it useable for anyone. It could start out as an online website like a VGC paypal to start. but the more focus on security regular people will get interested much faster. The website could transition to a more secure physical location along the lines of a bank(or casino) with actual vaults for cold storage. This will have to be state of the art security with monitored/controlled access, etc. This is why I originally had faith in this coin. with exchanges like Mt. Gox going down and shady things happening at these exchanges, VEGAS would require many rules to be followed and take security very seriously, like casinos and banks do. If this is ever adopted locally at that scale it will have to follow the rules as a business and be transparent and ULTRA secure. with good security and stability will come serious growth.

what would be cool is if these companies/programs like Bitconnect and Control Finance existed that were more transparent and legally(?) committed so that earnings COULD be guaranteed.... this all would only work if we could find ways to HARDCODE WEALTH/GROWTH into the system so anyone investing will earn... and yes this could be done if we consider something like a tax that gets broken up into various ongoing expenses (this could be applied to rewards for gamblers like progressive jackpot bonuses, comps, etc.).... Las Vegas has gambling machines called "MEGABUCKS" which is a Progressive Jackpot and so when those jackpots build up, its on the news and TONS of people (including locals) line up to play.... Its almost like the state lotteries when the jackpot gets big.

That kind of stuff would need people familiar with banking/casinos/gaming machines...

I wont give up hope on this coin. I hear there will be more work done by the devs, when time/economy permits... I am sure with all of these controlling factors, it becomes 100x more important to be cautious and thoughtful when considering any type of update to the client... In the meantime, I will be starting work on my websites and accept VGC, I have done a lot of prep work already but its just a big website...

One other thing is when we reach 100 million coins miners are going to be mining tx fees (i think), so mining is going to be an interesting factor affecting price... you see how much work is involved here, everybody should stop assuming its dead, its trading at Novaexchange now.

this is an example of a very small sports book (one of the smallest I have seen), it has tv screens with scores/lines.... a physical exchange could be small or large, but the customer service counter would just be where people put USD into their account (then they do the trading on the website or app) maybe cashing out at the counter to a certain limit and for larger amounts cashing out at the main cage...

the screens could also be big like the big sports books with all the current trading/coin marketcap statistics, etc. maybe crypto related television on other screens.

I was also thinking it would be cool to establish more long term mining in Las Vegas, the problem is electricity is very expensive, so the ideal route would be power them with solar. Not only would this eliminate significant operating costs, the mining/nodes will be sort of "digital monuments" to the long term stability of the coin, but with increase in scaling there will be increase in need for more mining... it would be great to see mining equipment companies come forward with possible solutions in the future, mining could become very profitable in the future and it would be good if the currency promoted future education, and mining is a great way to get involved and learn the ins and outs of the currency, this would be a big plus for mining equipment companies looking for more business, what better opportunity than sponsoring some solar rigs --- so maybe some solar people too :)

these are just my ideas, they are ambitious and I definitely cant put that kind of workload on myself alone, hopefully all of our ideas will develop into bigger and better things over time. But I think we will definitely see price growth soon on the exchange... the sell orders are the thinnest I have seen them, a few hundred dollars could set the price off..... If someone dropped a Bitcoin on the VGC exchange it would change our price paradigm completely (lol, im just guessing)...

yah definitely lots of potential there, also just because the market is so enticing, a lot of other projects have come out since VGC and still coming up now using ETH etc. in the end it's about getting it right, but I don't see the devs here, I don't know if anybody is still standing behind this coin apart from some enthusiastic community members but we need devs to move things forward. The website is still standing and looking nice, so I'm just confused about whether there is any work still being done or possible or not ???
