1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Where did AltMiner.net go? on: March 07, 2018, 04:03:52 PM
I've been mining on altminer.net for a couple months now and never had any problems. Today however I noticed my miners couldn't connect and when I went to check my balance I got a "This site can't be reached" error. It looks like their Twitter, @altminer_net, has also been deleted. Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Looks like their BCT profile was active earlier today too, but no posts since March 1st.

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Coins with unique development features on: January 22, 2018, 04:00:09 PM
I'm tired of ERC20 tokens, bitcoin forks, and straight up clone coins. I want to hear about coins with completely unique features like Arionum, which is written from scratch in PHP (rather than the more common C/C++) and uses the Argon2i algorithm for mining. What have you got?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Goodbye BitConnect... Hello Bitcoin Gold? on: January 19, 2018, 06:00:46 PM
I'm pretty happy to see BitConnect drop to #100 on CoinMarketCap, and hope to see it fall further. It's nice that some people are finally waking up and dumping scam coins like that. However... Bitcoin Gold is currently #15 overall and the best performing coin in the top 30. Why is anyone willing to throw money at a useless fork that has no purpose other than to grab a bunch of cash for the shady team behind it?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Marijuana coins in 2018 on: December 28, 2017, 12:58:12 PM
Which marijuana-related coin(s) do you think will take off as more legalizations kick in next year? I put together a list of the ones I could find on CoinMarketCap and compared their ties to the industry that could make them more successful: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2658296.0

It would be pretty easy to go with the current top 5, but maybe there's a sleeper or two in the mix?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Comparison of Marijuana-themed Coins on: December 28, 2017, 12:23:33 PM
With marijuana popping up in the news so often and California's recent legalization, there have been a few big spikes in almost every coin with a weed-related theme. The problem is that not all of these coins actually have ties to the marijuana industry and are just trying to capitalize on the name. I put together this list to help everyone see the difference between each coin. My goal is to help investors make informed decisions backed by facts and real world relationships. For this list I will only be covering coins listed on CoinMarketCap. I'm also not counting "we want to be the top crypto for cannabis" as a tie to the industry, since almost every single coin says that. If I missed something let me know!

Please note that at this point I have had no direct contact with any of the developers regarding the status of their project(s). All of the information in this post is based off of what I could find on their websites and social media accounts. Percentage changes shown below are calculated weekly and are not meant to be viewed as completely up-to-date numbers; they're included to give a quick idea of recent performance.

Total Market Cap (16 coins)
$82,942,122  (▲ 9%)

Top 5 Market Cap
1. PotCoin (POT) - $28.0 mil (▲ 10%)
2. HempCoin (THC) - $19.0 mil (▲ 37%)
3. Paragon (PRG) - $14.3 mil (▲ 2%)
4. Token (TKS) - $7.3 mil (- 0%)
5. DopeCoin (DOPE) - $7.2 mil (▼ 13%)

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Bounties with BTC/ETH payout on: December 21, 2017, 04:06:53 PM
Do bounty campaigns that pay in BTC/ETH ever work the way they're supposed to?

In the time I've been a member I've attempted to participate in 3 bounties that all claimed they'd pay out in BTC and/or ETH. The first one (FUNDCRU) was supposed to last 4-6 weeks with weekly BTC payments. I received payment for the first week, but then when it came time to be paid for the second week the devs announced that they were suspending the bounty campaign indefinitely. No payment was ever received for week 2, and they never locked the thread so some poor fools kept reporting their work all the way through week 6. The second one (Private City) claimed they'd be paying out in ETH. The campaign manager pretty quickly closed the thread after citing problems with the project dev and no payment was ever received. Now I'm on my third one, the infamous "C." In case you don't know what happened: the original bounty thread claimed that they would be paying out 15 BTC (or ETH if you so chose) over two campaigns. The first payout was supposed to happen on December 16th, but the dev asked for 72 hours to calculate all the payments which made the new deadline December 20th. As of now, no one has received any payment. They keep claiming they're going to post a BTC and an ETH address so people can check the payout transactions, but so far all they've done is add a little line or two to the post every day to maintain the illusion of updates.

I'm beginning to think that any campaign that isn't going to pay you with their own token is just looking to get free work out of people by promising something they never intend to deliver.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Does mining in America die with net neutrality? on: December 14, 2017, 08:29:33 PM
The FCC voted today to kill net neutrality which will now allow ISPs to throttle/block any traffic they see fit. I've seen a lot of people speculating that they're doing this to try to quash the rise of cryptocurrencies which they view as a threat to USD. Do you think it's likely that we'll see American-based mining pools and possibly even exchanges throttled? And if so, would that hurt or help mining for Bitcoin and other popular altcoins (ie would the decrease in total miners make the value go down since other miners now receive more, or would the drop in network hash rate result in more difficult mining and thus higher valued coins)?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / HempCoin (THC) on: November 27, 2017, 04:03:33 PM
It looks like the HempCoin team recently made a few posts/tweets teasing a huge update and a 10x boost. Could it really happen? I'm inclined to trust them more than other coins given their longevity (one of the earliest coins created) and the fact that THC has been going up steadily all year with a huge pump every few months, but I can't seem to find anything regarding what this "huge update" might actually be.
10  Economy / Trading Discussion / What price range do you like to buy in to? on: November 20, 2017, 06:03:47 PM
When you're researching an alt for a new investment, is there a certain price range you aim to start at?

A lot of the coins I've invested in have been no more than a couple hundred satoshis and have generally earned me minimal gains, while I've skipped over some coins worth significantly more that ended up shooting up even further. On the flip side, I've also screwed myself over while trying to get in on a pump for a bigger coin.

Obviously the goal is to buy at any given coin's low point, but is it better to buy in to extremely cheap coins or coins that are already a bit stronger?
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Getting around Webroot SecureAnywhere? on: November 08, 2017, 03:19:02 PM
I have a computer at work with a 1070 and an i7 that I'd like to do a little CPU + GPU mining on, but the problem is that I don't have administrator access and the Webroot antivirus software removes every piece of mining software I download. I did have ccminer 2.2.2 running for a few hours yesterday before it got caught by Webroot. Currently the only thing that seems to work is the Monero mining extension for Chrome, but that leaves a lot to be desired.

Does anyone know of a way to get around Webroot without administrator access? (so without white listing or installing anything)
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Best signature campaign for Jr members? on: October 31, 2017, 03:07:21 PM
I'm real close to making the switch from Newbie to Jr Member and I want to make sure I get in on a signature campaign ASAP. I'd like to hear what people think might be the best option in terms of value (considering factors such as amount granted, current/expected price, and bonuses)
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Does anyone actually use altcoins for their intended purpose? on: October 25, 2017, 05:25:44 PM
Having seen coins meant for everything from powering wireless plans to identity verification to renting disk space, I truly wonder if anyone actually uses these coins for anything other than trading. Do any of you actually use altcoins for their related goods/services, or do you just load up with the intent of turning it in to BTC?
