1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / NEW POLL: RISE Community Vote for Rate of Inflation on: July 01, 2016, 08:48:09 PM
To Change or Not to Change the Rise Block Reward?

After concerns that the block reward is too high there is a chance to lower it if a large majority think it's worth doing.

To start with we'll run a yes or no poll for 2 weeks, if the Yes vote wins, we'll look at what the block reward should be changed to in round 2 of voting. If the majority is a No vote then block reward will remain the same.

Rise team would like to know what the community thinks about the current block reward.

Over the next 5 years Rise has the following rate of inflation.

Year 1: 15 RISE per block, 115,768,000 Total coins with 15.77% annual inflation rate
Year 2: 12 RISE per block, 128,382,400 Total coins with 10.90% annual inflation rate
Year 3:   9 RISE per block, 137,843,200 Total coins with 7.37% annual inflation rate
Year 4:   6 RISE per block, 144,150,400 Total coins with 4.58% annual inflation rate
Year 5:   3 RISE per block, 147,304,000 Total coins with 2.19% annual inflation rate
Year 6+: 0 Rise per block and therefore 0% inflation.

At the end of the the fith year there is 0 block reward and transaction fees alone will sustain the network.

Please vote Yes or No if you would like to see the Rise inflation rate changed!

6  Economy / Service Discussion / Bitstamp Acting Very Strange : Heads Up on: February 20, 2014, 05:49:21 PM
Posting here to get some attention and to warn others of a potential Bitstamp problem.

They are not processing $XXXX withrdawals

NOT responding to support tickets.

They are not allowing medium to large BTC withdrawals for many people

I tried making $9000 withdrawal, got told week later my bank account details were not correct. My bank details had not changed since the last few withdrawals.

So I input all details again, and tried again. Couple of days later I got the following message from Bitstamp.


We received your withdrawal request. As your withdrawal request met some of our volume and frequency thresholds, we will have to kindly ask you to help us better understand the nature of your relationship with Bitstamp. In order to do so, we require that an additional KYC (know your customer) procedure is completed before we can proceed with the processing of your transfer.

We kindly ask you to send us a high resolution image double page of your international passport and answer the following KYC questionnaire:

1. How did you learn about Bitcoin?
2. The purpose of trading on Bitstamp?
3. What is the origin of the deposited Bitcoins? If mining, please specify your hardware specifications and submit a receipt or an invoice for your mining equipment.
4. What are your future plans and activities planned on our exchange?
5. Do you plan more withdrawals in the future?
6. Which bank are you using? Please provide the complete address and SWIFT code.
7. What is the source of the funds which you are depositing to your Bitstamp account? Please provide any financial documentation which can confirm how the funds sent to your Bitstamp account were acquired.

We kindly ask you to submit your answers and documents in a reply to this ticket.


So I provide them everything they ask and try to withdraw again.

A couple of days goes by and nothing.

Not even response to support tickets, twitter, pm on forum etc etc.

Blocked from withdrawing Bitcoin too!

Something is not right and an explanation is needed.

Bitstamp have problems, this could cause a big shoot in price.

There are two threads in the sub sections about this with other users reporting similar problems with Bitstamp

16  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-11-12 CNBC Winklevosses: Bitcoin worth at least 100 times more on: November 12, 2013, 07:00:54 PM
Below is a link to the video interview

The Winklevoss twins are screaming bulls on bitcoin.
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss—big investors in the digital currency—said Tuesday that bitcoin should be worth at least 100 times more than it's valued today.

"The small bull case scenario is a $400 billion market cap. So the market cap is around $4 billion right now," Tyler Winklevoss said in an interview at the DealBook conference that aired on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

The twins, who famously battled Mark Zuckerberg over the origins of Facebook, started buying bitcoin at $9. Their investment was worth $11 million in April at $120 per coin.

After a sharp drop, bitcoin has surged into record territory again, hitting $385 in early Tuesday trading on Mt. Gox—one of the many exchanges for the digital currency.
Cameron Winklevoss said he views their investment in bitcoin as a gold 2.0-play but also a bet on the technology: "The idea that payments are increasingly going to use a network like the bitcoin network to move money around the world."

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss
The Winklevosses want to create a bitcoin exchange traded fund (ETF), accessible to all investors. "We filed an amended S-1 in October. And we're just still going through the process," Cameron said.
He explained how bitcoin works: "Miners mint bitcoins every 10 minutes. It's basically a computer algorithm." He said the computers built to mine are so specific "you couldn't really do it as a hobbyist."
Bitcoin was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, a pseudonym, Tyler said. "We don't need to know him because it's based on ... trust in cryptography, not trust in individual."

As for what regulators in Washington think about bitcoin, Cameron said, "I think everyone recognizes the innovation and doesn't want to stifle it. They just want to make sure there's healthy regulations so it's used in a safe and productive manner."

Last month, bitcoin plunged after U.S. authorities shut down the Silk Road site, an accused online purveyor of drugs and other illegal services. Bitcoin had been hit by the perception that it was used primarily for transactions on Silk Road, and many had expected demand to dry up after the website was closed.

But Tyler Winklevoss said those concerns were never realized: "Prices are double what it was before Silk Road was shut down. So the demand to use bitcoin for illicit activity was clearly almost zero."

Mainstream merchants are slowly adopting bitcoin. Cameron pointed out that e-commerce platform Shopify announced it will accept bitcoin, and so has China portal Baidu.

The digital currency has even made steps into the physical realm, with ATM manufacturer Robocoin launching the first bitcoin ATM in a Vancouver coffee shop.

Correction: This version shows that the Winklevosses' investment in bitcoin was worth $11 million in April.

A couple of days ago a Netherlands online retailer started to accept BTC as payment for ordering food. That website was a subsidary of

Now they seem to have recently enabled BTC in other countries including UK ( and France (

This will certainly create more awareness and it enables me to correct certain french people that say - "Bitcoin will never be adopted in France".
18  Economy / Service Discussion / Bitstamp Help! on: November 09, 2013, 10:04:35 AM
Last night I decided to buy another Bitcoin.

I logged into my bank account and sent 300 euros to Bitstamp.

Then about 20 seconds after clicking send I realised I forgot to include their 11 digit transaction reference they ask for in my bank transfer, I couldn't cancel it either.

I went to see my bank this morning and they cannot do anything to stop the transaction now.

I send an email to Bitstamp with no response.

Any advice about how to get in contact with them would be much appreciated.
