1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] APTUM - EVERYBODY’S CRYPTO | White Paper released on: June 01, 2019, 08:38:52 PM

Merging both Bullion and Mono, Aptum combines the expertise of a six-year-old cryptocurrency with the innovations of a new protocol. Coming from two cryptocurrencies, both communities will have the opportunity to swap in their coins for the new merged coin (conversion rate to be determined prior to Bullion hard fork – beginning of August). To help you evaluate whether or not you want to exchange your Bullion or Mono for Aptum, we will give a brief overview of the project in the following:

White Paper:

July 2019 | Release of technical whitepaper
August 2019 | Beginning of CBX/MONO to AP-Token conversion; Website Launch
September 2019 | Public Testnet of AP-Currency; AP ICO beginning
October 2019 | End of CBX/MONO to AP-Token conversion; Public Release of AP-Currency; Beginning of AP-Token to AP-Currency conversion

If you are interested in participating in this new project, the following will explain the details of the swap for you.

1) In August, we will make a fork of Bullion [CBX] to BullionX [BXX]. At point of fork you will get an equivalent amount of BXX to match what you hold in CBX at that time. ONLY BXX CAN BE USED FOR CONVERSION TO ERC-20 TOKEN.
2) After sending your BXX to a specified address, you can withdraw your AP token to any Ethereum address.
3) We will burn your BXX for you, so you don’t have to worry about them anymore.
4) You can now move on and trade your AP tokens freely on the Ethereum network.

You can claim your AP token till October 1st, 00:00 AM (UTC).

3  Economy / Services / 10 BTC Job- Talented dev needed for implementation of new proof-of-stake algo on: September 08, 2015, 12:37:17 PM
Hello to the community,
For those unaware, CBX is an alt coin that was created in June of 2013. It employs a hybrid algorithm (PoW and PoS) at the present. We have created a unique proof-of-stake concept that we wish to have implemented to replace the current hybrid algorithm. A rough draft of the white paper is already created. We are looking for a talented coder to take on this job of implementation of our vision. Pay is 10 BTC for the work and would be held in escrow. The developer would also have an option to stay on with the project going forward for which they would be incentivized with CBX. Please PM should you have interest with your experience and qualifications or I can be reached directly via email at elambert@cryptobullion.io.

Thank you in advance.

Ok guys and gals, I am kicking off this thread to lead up to the first birthday of Cryptogenic Bullion on June 27th! We have a number of amazing developments (some public, some private) that will be revealed as the month of June progresses. All the while I will be running some giveaways and contests on this thread.

The first giveaway will start now and will consist of a 100 CGB prize to the winner!

The first contest will be a game of 20 questions (or more if necessary). This contest will not end until there is a winner. So for those unfamiliar, here are the rules. I have an object in mind. You can ask yes or no questions only. As I answer them, more question can be asked until someone guesses the object and wins.
COMPLETED, congrats to paulmaritz!

The second contest will involve Bitcointalk, Twitter, Facebook and Reddit. I have loaded a CGB wallet with 100 CGB. The balance can be checked and confirmed according to the address 5hDq6CmKzE6vGVwUyEGvxQvczMxqTPre6k. The private key associated with this address consists of 52 characters. I have broken this private key up into 8 sections; 4 consisting of 6 characters and 4 consisting of 7 characters (4*6) + (4*7) = 52 characters total. I will be posting these 8 segments of the private key via the afore mentioned social media outlets (2 segments per outlet). These 8 segments will need to be found and then assembled in the correct order. The first one to do this and redeem the funds wins. Make sure you follow this thread, subscribe to the CGB Reddit, follow the BULL on Twitter and like us on Facebook so you can race the others in the community to retrieve and assemble this private key first!

To kick things off, here is 1 of the 8 segments to the private key: RaZ4bnj

Good luck!
COMPLETED, congrats to thokon00!!!

It is time for contest #3!!! This contest will center around Twitter and involve a prize of 20 CGB. I will tweet a link to a CGB thread momentarily. The first 5 people to favorite and retweet this tweet, will have a 1/5 chance of winning the prize. I have already selected a number between 1-5, if you are the favorite/retweet in the chronological spot I have suggested, you will win!

I am heading to Twitter now! Good luck!
COMPLETED! Congratulations to @marcelolustosa for winning contest #3 in the Countdown to CGB's B-Day party!

Contest #4!
This contest is aimed at spreading word of one of the major projects that CGB is currently partnered with, CryptoTown! This is an enormous project aimed at bridging the gap between cryptos and real world local users and merchants and is not nation, coin or person specific. This is for all coin communities! The CGB team has a series of numbers selected and will give away 10 CGB to the corresponding individual from each group of 10 to carry out the below assignment.

1. Favorite and retweet the 'Contest # 4 tweet'  
2. Subscribes to this Reddit
3. Reply to the Reddit post with a verbal vote of support, your CGB address and sign with your user name and nation (ex: elambert, USA)

Q: What are banks for?

A: To make money.

Q: For the customers?

A: For the banks.

Q: Why doesn’t bank advertising mention this?

A: It would not be in good taste. But it is mentioned by implication in references to
reserves of $249,000,000,000 or thereabouts. That is the money they have made.

Q: Out of the customers?

A: I suppose so.

Q: They also mention Assets of $500,000,000,000 or thereabouts. Have they made that
too?

A: Not exactly. That is the money they use to make money.

Q: I see. And they keep it in a safe somewhere?

A: Not at all. They lend it to customers.


Q: Then they haven’t got it?

A: No.

Q: Then how is it Assets?

A: They maintain that it would be if they got it back.

Q: But they must have some money in a safe somewhere?

A: Yes, usually $500,000,000,000 or thereabouts. This is called Liabilities.

Q: But if they’ve got it, how can they be liable for it?

A: Because it isn’t theirs.

Q: Then why do they have it?

A: It has been lent to them by customers.

Q: You mean customers lend banks money?

A: In effect. They put money into their accounts, so it is really lent to the banks.

Q: And what do the banks do with it?

A: Lend it to other customers.

Q: But you said that money they lent to other people was Assets?

A: Yes.

Q: Then Assets and Liabilities must be the same thing?

A: You can’t really say that.

Q: But you’ve just said it! If I put $100 into my account the bank is liable to have to pay it
back, so it’s Liabilities. But they go and lend it to someone else, and he is liable to have to
pay it back, so it’s Assets. It’s the same $100 isn’t it?

A: Yes, but….

Q: Then it cancels out. It means, doesn’t it, that banks haven’t really any money at all?

A: Theoretically……

Q: Never mind theoretically! And if they haven’t any money, where do they get their
Reserves of $249,000,000,000 or thereabouts??

A: I told you. That is the money they have made.

Q: How?

A: Well, when they lend your $100 to someone they charge him interest.

Q: How much?

A: It depends on the Bank Rate. Say five and a-half percent. That’s their profit.

Q: Why isn’t it my profit? Isn’t it my money?

A: It’s the theory of banking practice that………

Q: When I lend them my $100 why don’t I charge them interest?

A: You do.

Q: You don’t say. How much?

A: It depends on the Bank Rate. Say a half percent.

Q: Grasping of me, rather?

A: But that’s only if you’re not going to draw the money out again.

Q: But of course I’m going to draw the money out again! If I hadn’t wanted to draw it out
again I could have buried it in the garden!

A: They wouldn’t like you to draw it out again.

Q: Why not? If I keep it there you say it’s a Liability. Wouldn’t they be glad if I reduced
their Liabilities by removing it?

A: No. Because if you remove it they can’t lend it to anyone else.

Q: But if I wanted to remove it they’d have to let me?

A: Certainly.

Q: But suppose they’ve already lent it to another customer?

A: Then they’ll let you have some other customers money.

Q: But suppose he wants his too….and they’ve already let me have it?

A: You’re being purposely obtuse.

Q: I think I’m being acute. What if everyone wanted their money all at once?

A: It’s the theory of banking practice that they never would.

Q: So what banks bank on, is not having to meet their commitments?

A: I wouldn’t say that.

Q: Naturally. Well, if there’s nothing else you think you can tell me….?

A: Quite so. Now you can go off and open a banking account!

Q: Just one last question.

A: Of course.

Q: Wouldn’t I do better to go off and open up a bank
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / CGB Website Translation Community Effort - Your Help Needed! on: April 15, 2014, 08:28:18 AM
Special thanks to spac3_invad3r for taking the lead with this project!

Quote
I am strongly encouraging bilingual supporters of CGB to participate in the joint effort to translate the website. Let's make it even more awesome by widening the target audience! Chinese and Japanese translators are the most welcome as the language barrier seems the most significant here.
You don't have to be a qualified translator to perform the task, all you need to have are writing skills so that you can provide a correct, fluent-to-read text for speakers of your language as opposed to common google translations of other altcoin sites.
How to translate:
Go to https://crowdin.net/project/cryptogenic-bullion
Register to get access to translation module.
If your language is not present on the list, please contact me on reddit or crowdin and I will add it to the project.
Translation is divided to subpages, which means that some content needs to be translated multiple times but you can do it fast by selecting existing translations from the memory.
Once finished, it is recommended to proofread the translation (voting). If there's only one person for a language, we can do without it, however.
If you have any questions regarding crowdin, the best way to adress them is via crowdin, where you can contact me as a project owner.
Once you are finished, please post your wallet adress so that other members may express their gratitude :-)
Update German, Dutch, Spanish and Polish in progress. Thank you for volunteering!

Abstract


This paper introduces a new paradigm for utilizing the hash string outputs (ie. the nonce values) from the proof-of-work or proof-of-stake scheme of the virtual commodity, Cryptogenic Bullion (CB).  This new paradigm, named the MADEsparq Project, aims to blur the defining lines between currency, technology, and data by using the CB block chain to mediate the mapping of data to create, and add value, to content and unstructured and semi-structured data.  Over time, as more data is mapped onto the CB block chain from a vast spectrum of subjects and interests, chance occurrences for discovering valuable mathematical, structural, functional, or social relationships from the overlap and intersection of data mappings increase.  Therefore, since the data mappings onto the CB block chain can overlap from separate knowledge-domains, there is the potential for new insights and discoveries from the collaboration of participants in the MADEsparq Project, whose specialties lie in vastly different subject matters, that might not have been possible before.  Thus, the intrinsic value of the virtual commodity (ie. CB's hash chain) mediating the data mappings should increase over time.

Website (under construction):   http://MADEsparq.org


NOTE: This is a draft.  It's not quite finished yet but it's good enough to update the CB community of our first main project which I've been hinting.  Please use this thread to share constructive criticism and misunderstandings.  Although the paper is meant for the laymen, it's still quite dense with meaning.  I personally think it will change the world but I'm sure some people will read it and think, "Huh?".


<rant>

When I read the following statement a couple months ago

“Alternate block chains compete with bitcoins financially, confuse our message to the world, and dilute our efforts. These barriers interfere with the adoption momentum of bitcoin and the adoption momentum of alternate currencies as well, regardless of how well-conceived their rules may be.”

in this coindesk article about the MasterCoin project, I have to admit it got under my skin.  It sounded like imperialism 2.0.

It would be silly for the MADEsparq Project to not support Bitcoin's block chain, but this ideology that Bitcoin is the virtual currency and that the only altcoins to exist should be made through Bitcoin is absurd.  There are millions of creative and highly skilled people who have yet to get involved with virtual currencies.  And if nonsense keeps being said like the above statement then I doubt virtual currencies will ever gain mass adoption, because anybody with half a brain will be able to see the truth of what's happening.  And that it's the same imperialist bull shit that has been going on since, well, the invention of currency...

I think the virtual currency world needs a strong Bitcoin--price stability and strength is crucial for any economic and monetary system.  And I just don't see any other virtual currency growing bigger than Bitcoin--I'll be blunt, it just ain't happening.  And the reasons for it now are more political than anything else, especially with the kind of funds being invested in the ASIC industry.  But true adoption by the private sector won't happen until there are legitimate options to help allocate and manage risk better.  Bitcoin absolutely will not be the only virtual currency to be supported if there is to be true mass adoption, because it quite simply cannot.  Yes, MasterCoin will help in this regard.  But as the MADEsparq Project exhibits, there are many ways to be an innovative coin.

On another note, I applaud the possible regulation meetings to take place in New York next month.  And I emphatically cheer the possibility of a Bit License being a requirement not only for merchants adopting Bitcoin as a payment option but of also a representative on a virtual currency's development team.  If there's a fee to register a virtual currency so to be used in the USA (a fee for each state maybe), then so be it.  But let it not be a trivial amount either!  I would cheer such a fee!  That, in my humble opinion, would be the final nail in the coffin of so many of these shady losers on this forum making coins.  Good riddance!

</rant>


Supervising the long term stability of Cryptogenic Bullion is one of my main priorities.  I have considered many ideas, including revision to the PoS scheme so to be more secure and being PoS-only.  But it's not an easy task and I'll have even less time now given my priorities to help develop MADEsparq Project.  But I have recently considered the idea of converting the PoW scheme of Cryptogenic Bullion to be merged mined with BTC.  Perhaps Garzik or somebody else on the Bitcoin dev team could pm or email me to further discuss the possibility.  But at the very least, I'll be scheduling a hard-fork in about a month or so from now that will increase the block times slightly so that the block relationship between the PoW and PoS schemes are more smooth.  As mentioned before, even though I kept elambert in the loop of my project plans, I did not officially join the Cryptogenic Bullion dev team until almost a month after its release.  So now I'm revising some of the original PoW/PoS specs to increase mining efficiency while also increasing long-term stability.  This has become even more important now that its block chain is intricately involved with MADEsparq Project.  

If another member of a major virtual currency would like to discuss any matter, please feel free to email me using the above email address.

Cheers.

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Suggestion to Cryptsy on: October 31, 2013, 12:39:31 AM
Let me preface this with saying that I am a huge fan and long time supporter of Cryptsy. Some time ago, when I was an avid trader at btc-e, I received a 1 week ban from chat. This encouraged me to join the Cryptsy chat instead. I quickly fell in love with the exchange and the community and once my btc-e ban lifted, I did not even want to go back. I moved my funds to Cryptsy and had a new home. Crytpsy did everything right then as a fledgling exchange by adding lots of coins and drawing a loyal customer base. I argue, although controversial, the adding of many coins was/is one of the keys to their success, but not the only factor. They also always had a mod in chat and tickets filed for issues were responded to promptly. The exchange worked great and Cryptsy quickly became a major player, even stole a large number of btc-e loyals such as myself. But at some point in the last couple of months, things have changed and roles have reversed. Why?

I know the Cryptsy team is dedicated and has invested a lot of time and money into upgrades that are being implemented as we speak. I do have faith that these moves will correct any performance issues currently occurring. Additional to these moves, I would like to share a couple suggestions.

1. Cut out the coins you see fit (if this is indeed a cause of exchange performance issues)
2. Make sure the exchange is secure (has not been an issue to my knowledge)
3. Make sure deposits and withdrawals are working flawlessly
4. Tickets are responded to and problems fixed promptly
5. A mod is always present in the chat


Edit:
I have removed my suggested "coins to keep" list as this is not my place to decide or suggest.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / 6 days in the CGB blockchain (CCN) on: October 01, 2013, 09:38:48 PM
As the CGB community is aware, CGB PoW subsidy has been decreasing at a rapid rate as we approach the minting of 1 million CGB. The next subsidy halving to 1.25 CGB per block is scheduled to occur at block 145k - estimated to take place this coming Sunday. This PoW subsidy halving will continue, approximately every month, until the baseline subsidy of .01 is reached.

Phasing Out PoW
As initially planned, we are presently researching the possibility of changing this design and becoming the first PoS only crypto commodity and phasing out PoW completely, sorry miners. In such a scenario all transactions would be confirmed via PoS blocks making CGB the most energy efficient crypto commodity. One of the concerns is consistency and regularity of PoS block generation as this would be the apparatus for confirming transactions. In a quick analysis of the last 6 days of CGB's blockchain (blocks 129889 thru 137962) we have identified the following:

- 977 PoS blocks occurred during this time frame
- Average time between PoS blocks was 8 minutes ranging from less than 1 minute to 2h 36m
- Only 3 of the 977 blocks were spaced by > 1hr (69 min, 70 min and 156 min respectively)
- 25% occurred within 2 minutes of the previous PoS block
- 52% occurred within 5 minutes of the previous PoS block
- 72% occurred within 10 minutes of the previous PoS block
- 83% occurred within 15 minutes of the previous PoS block
- 89% occurred within 20 minutes of the previous PoS block
- 96% occurred within 30 minutes of the previous PoS block

Based off of this data sample set, we can assume that almost all transactions (96%) would be confirmed within 30 minutes with an 8 minute average confirmation time based on running off PoS alone. As time goes by of course, PoS blocks will continue to become more prevalent and confirmation time will thereby continue to accelerate.

Guaranteed PoS Blocks
We have 30 wallets that will be incrementally deposited with 1 CGB every 8-12 hours for a span of 90 days, which will remain untouched, forever.  This ensures a lower bound in the frequency of PoS blocks found in the future.  And as these wallets create stake rewards, this lower bound will increase over time.

Hello,
I am a member of the Cryptogenic Bullion (CGB) development team. For those who don't already know, CGB is a relatively young currency (created on June 28th, 2013). CGB trades at a few exchanges, has multiple pools and is accepted by a few merchants already. More importantly, CGB has tremendous future potential for growth. The team is spending between $1-2k per month to advertise CGB and a cap is set for 1 million CGB to be created - so it is and will remain extremely rare. The blend of advertising, rarity, fast transaction time and devoted development team make this an excellent crypto for holding for the long term.

If you sell or would like to sell goods and services and accept payment via crypto, the CGB team would be happy to collaborate with you and allow your site to piggyback on our marketing push. If you are interested in adding CGB as a payment option, please reach out to me via pm here or directly at cryptogenicbullion@gmail.com. Our website is http://cryptogenicbullion.org if you would like to read up more on CGB.

Sincerely,

If you sell or would like to sell goods and services and accept payment via crypto, the CGB team would be happy to collaborate with you and allow your site to piggyback on our marketing push. If you are interested in adding CGB as a payment option, please reach out to me via pm here or directly at cryptogenicbullion@gmail.com. Our website is http://cryptogenicbullion.org if you would like to read up more on CGB.

Sincerely,
elambert


Edit: Adding Merc's inaugural annual innovation awards pre-announcement quote:
Special end of year rewards to most innovative/community supportive/useful/creative services accepting CGB as payment option.  This will be the inaugural year (obviously).  The winners will be somewhat subjective, but the methodology for picking winners will be a point system as follows:  

score of 1-10 in the following categories (criterion higher on the list is weighed more):

technological innovation

community support and popularity

usefulness/practicality

creativity (in terms of presentation as well as the service or product itself)


The service with the highest cumulative score will win!  



We will make the awards an official announcement once we have agreed to the scoring methodology.  

Winner will be chosen in early December.
 

Awards for this year will be :

1st place:  $500 equivalent in CGB

2nd place:  $250 equivalent in CGB

3rd place:  $200 equivalent in CGB

4th place:  $150 equivalent in CGB

5th place:  $100 equivalent in CGB




So, if you have a service/business/product and you don't have CGB as a payment option, now you have another incentive to join the family!


Cheers!

-Merc

EDIT:  This is not final...awards and scoring criteria can change.  An official announcement will be made by next week.  

EDIT2:  Since this is a short year for us, the rewards are consequently not that impressive.  But we expect next year's rewards to have zeros added to the end of this year's rewards.   Cool

Hello to the CB family! You support has been and continues to be the best in the crypto community!

In accordance with our dedicated push to promote Cryptogenic Bullion (and crypto-currencies in general) worldwide to the masses, we would like to recruit some multi-lingual PR assistance. If you are fluent in a non-English language and a fan/investor in CB, please post here. Also, please mention if you would be interested in doing some translation work for the CB website and other marketing projects as well as establishing a presence in the "Local" section (for non-English languages) of the BCT forums.
