5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / List of WAVES Token Airdrops on: January 11, 2018, 09:54:14 PM
I've been trying (unsuccessfully) find a list of airdop tokens based on the WAVES platform. They don't come up anywhere near as often as ETH based ones, but they do from time to time.

If you find any, please post them here, and I'll do the same.

Here's one to get you started (note, you'll need a WAVES wallet address to sign-up)
6  Economy / Economics / Imminent DOW Meltdown on: January 05, 2018, 07:31:42 PM
Following yesterday's announcements that the DOW has reached 25000 for the first time, numerous analysts are warning investors about the possibility of a major "meltdown" and "exponential risk" within the next 6 months to 2 years.

How do you think a crash will affect the crypto markets?

Will cryptos be a safe haven?

Should investors sell traditional equities and move funds into cryptos?
7  Economy / Trading Discussion / The Next Bitcoin Short on: December 11, 2017, 09:49:37 PM
Bitcoin was trading just under $20,000 right before the weekend, then dropped around $6,000 and is slowly picking up for the next long. David Chapman, who accurately predicted BTC would hit at least $10,000 before the end of the year, now predicts $100,000 by the end of next year. Knowing how BTC ebbs and flows, a what price do you think the next short will happen?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Geth Light Mode Currently Dead & Byzantium Sync Issues on: December 04, 2017, 01:42:11 AM
I thought it might just be me, but Geth and Ethereum Wallet have not been able to synch for the last two days in "light" mode, but looking on Gitter, it seems like others are experiencing the same problem. I'm now trying to synch in "fast" mode, but it's painfully slow (will take a week at the rate it's going). Anyone on here running into this issue, and if so, have you found a solution/workaround?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / BTT SCAM ICOs and Airdrop LIST on: November 30, 2017, 03:58:31 AM
Every few days another ICO is announced on this forum. Some of them use airdrops as a lure - don't get me wrong, I like airdrops, but the ICO part is what we're concerned about here.

I invite you all to list and discuss potential scam ICOs in this thread. That doesn't mean add an announcement/project just because you don't like them, or didn't get free tokens, this is to help prevent people investing money in scams.

I'll start by listing two new ones from this week.

# 1: Amazon X Token (AmazonExchage) ICO starting Dec 1st.
This is an obvious scam. They use Amazon's brand name and imagery on their site, and all over their Twitter feed, giving the impression it's an Amazon company, it's not.

The domain is registered to:  Vedran Hochberger, in Croatia - no affiliation to Amazon

The airdrop form is just for harvesting email addresses, and doesn't even have a field for MEW addresses.

# 2: Ethereum Universe ICO starting Dec 2nd.
This token claims that it will "revolutionize monetary policy in the entire world" and solve a plethora of issues with Ethereum and market adoption, claims to use "multiple hashing algorithms" to ensure security, etc., etc. Everything this token does is inherited from Ethereum. Roadmap includes numerous ridiculous claims.

Take a look at the website and roadmap to see what I mean:

The ECR20 is about as basic as you can get:
pragma solidity ^0.4.11;
contract Token {
    string public symbol = "";
    string public name = "";
    uint8 public constant decimals = 18;
    uint256 _totalSupply = 0;
    address owner = 0;
    bool setupDone = false;
    event Transfer(address indexed _from, address indexed _to, uint256 _value);
    event Approval(address indexed _owner, address indexed _spender, uint256 _value);
    mapping(address => uint256) balances;
    mapping(address => mapping (address => uint256)) allowed;
    function Token(address adr) {
        owner = adr;        
    function SetupToken(string tokenName, string tokenSymbol, uint256 tokenSupply)
        if (msg.sender == owner && setupDone == false)
            symbol = tokenSymbol;
            name = tokenName;
            _totalSupply = tokenSupply * 1000000000000000000;
            balances[owner] = _totalSupply;
            setupDone = true;
    function totalSupply() constant returns (uint256 totalSupply) {        
        return _totalSupply;
    function balanceOf(address _owner) constant returns (uint256 balance) {
        return balances[_owner];
    function transfer(address _to, uint256 _amount) returns (bool success) {
        if (balances[msg.sender] >= _amount
            && _amount > 0
            && balances[_to] + _amount > balances[_to]) {
            balances[msg.sender] -= _amount;
            balances[_to] += _amount;
            Transfer(msg.sender, _to, _amount);
            return true;
        } else {
            return false;
    function transferFrom(
        address _from,
        address _to,
        uint256 _amount
    ) returns (bool success) {
        if (balances[_from] >= _amount
            && allowed[_from][msg.sender] >= _amount
            && _amount > 0
            && balances[_to] + _amount > balances[_to]) {
            balances[_from] -= _amount;
            allowed[_from][msg.sender] -= _amount;
            balances[_to] += _amount;
            Transfer(_from, _to, _amount);
            return true;
        } else {
            return false;
    function approve(address _spender, uint256 _amount) returns (bool success) {
        allowed[msg.sender][_spender] = _amount;
        Approval(msg.sender, _spender, _amount);
        return true;
    function allowance(address _owner, address _spender) constant returns (uint256 remaining) {
        return allowed[_owner][_spender];

Please be careful where you invest your money, and if you find other obvious scams, please post them here with a brief description of why it's a scam.

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is INS Ecosystem a SCAM? on: November 28, 2017, 12:57:51 AM
INS Ecosystems has done an unsolicited airdrop of 777 INS Promo tokens to Ethereum wallet holders. The sole purpose of the tokens is to promote their ICO and give promo token holders the opportunity to get a 5% bonus, by sending them 1 token back. The tokens can be shared with your friends, effectively making you pay (gas) to do their marketing for them. In fact, if you sent all the remaining tokens, it would cost you $70 USD. The tokens cannot be used for anything else, cannot be traded, and will not be converted into INS after the ICO. They could just as easily have done bounty campaigns and provided affiliate links for bonuses.

I see this as a disturbing development in crypto - essentially being the cyrpto equivalent of Viagra email spamming. It seems to me, that if a company is willing to stoop to spamming people to promote it's ICO, the team should not be trusted. That aside, this approach should be condemned and stopped before it becomes a trend.

How do the rest of you feel about this? Am I the only one that sees this as cyrpto-spamming?

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Building Team for IoT Focused Cyrptocurrency on: November 24, 2017, 12:03:25 AM

I've been mining, trading and investing in cryptocurrencies, and developing test ECR20 contracts for about six months now, all of it leading towards my main goal of using technology, specifically blockchain technology, to solve some of the biggest and most profound problems of our times. This is not about getting rich quick (although financial independence is something I think we all aspire to), it is about solving real world problems that our governments are failing to address.

With this in mind, I have created an initial smart contract (that was the easy part), have a website and white-paper in development, and have started building a team to help bring the vision to reality.

The goal is to launch a token sale, the proceeds of which will be held in escrow to pay the team, fund development, and provide liquidity for the company (that will be setup shortly, as a US based corporation). In the spirit of decentralization, the team should be global, and draw from the experience of the crypto-community.

As such, I'm reaching out here to find experts in the following fields:

  • IoT hardware development
  • InfoSec/Infrastructure Management/DDoS Protection, etc.
  • Blockchain/advanced smart contract development (project will use a side-chain, along with the main token contract)
  • Marketing
  • Social Media
  • Business Development
  • Legal Representation (must be highly knowledgable on all facets of SEC regulations)

We're only interested in people with a proven and verifiable track record, that can provide references, valid (well established) LinkedIn accounts with careers in reputable firms. If you fit the bill, we'd love to hear from you. PM me and provide some background information, so that we can start a conversation and get NDAs signed.

In addition, we will also be looking for moderators and promoters for Telegram, Bitcointalk, Reddit, Twitter etc. These roles will be treated like bounty campaigns, but paid out at a far higher rates than for those of regular participants.  Moderators must be fluent in English, have impeccable written communication skills. Respondents should have a BTT status of Member, or higher. Applicants with negative trust ratings will be immediately disqualified.

For obvious reasons the vision will not be revealed until the official announcement.
12  Other / Off-topic / Graphics Cards On Fire on: November 01, 2017, 04:55:33 PM

Asking for some advice from experienced miners...

I've been running a mining rig using EVGA GTX 1070 FTWs, keeping their temperatures under 75C. This morning, one of them caught fire. They've been running for 3 months, with occasional breaks. Have I been pushing them too hard, or should this still fall under the warranty? I'm assuming it's probably the former, but this is my first rig, so I'm not sure what the normal tolerance should be.

Would appreciate any advice.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / OMNI Layer Up 67% - Why? on: October 12, 2017, 06:41:26 PM
OMNI is trading at +67% today. What gives? I don't see any news on here or Reddit. Why the rally?
