3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / A recent ICO for arbitrage between exchanges and algorithmic trading? on: August 31, 2017, 05:56:27 AM
So many ICO's

I invested in one recently that was going to arbitrage between exchanges and share trading profits.

I can't remember what it was called.

Does any one know?

Thanks Smiley Smiley
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is there a good article that explains the upcoming fork/changes? on: August 20, 2017, 05:40:23 AM
Sorry if this has been gone over, but is there a good article (or thread even) that explains what is happening next with a fork or segwit?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How much hashing power does Bitcoincash have? on: August 01, 2017, 11:24:01 PM
Where can I see that?

Thanks
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Why will Bitcoincash be better than other alt coins? on: August 01, 2017, 01:49:11 AM
So, BitcoinCash will be another alt coin (I guess). Will it be better than the other alt coins that are designed to be used like cash?

I guess if it attracts a lot of hashing power that will make it better, but will it be better otherwise?
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Coins that are better than Bitcoincash as a currency on: August 01, 2017, 12:14:50 AM
Which coins could be or are better than Bitcoincash as a currency?

There are plenty of other that were designed to be fast and with scaling built in or easily integrated.

I'm thinking Dash, Digibyte...but there must be others. Are any of the m objectively better?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Who runs Tether? on: July 28, 2017, 12:28:13 AM
Tether is listed on Poloniex, so I presume Poloniex would have done some due diligence, but when i look at the Tether website, there is no information about who runs it or where they bank.

Who are they?

https://wallet.tether.to/transparency

They claim to be transparent but there is no transparency at all. None
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / What wallet to use in case bitcoin forks? on: July 13, 2017, 10:43:27 PM
Which wallet should I use to store my bitcoin in order that if the fork happens I will get both coins?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Looking for some advice on setting up a local not for profit blockchain on: July 13, 2017, 10:40:54 PM
I'm wanting to get some help and ideas from people here on an idea I have. I want to set up a localised blockchain that people in my community can use. I'm thinking I will lean on the tremendous amount of open source work done by altcoins. I'll probably look to fork or copy one.

I want.

1. Something flexible.
2.Something where people will be able to communicate with each other with a central server.
3.Something that wont be a drag on peoples computers.


I'd love to hear ideas.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Civic ICO...how to purchase on: June 21, 2017, 04:58:00 AM
So I registered for the ICO. Scanned the code received my verification codes.

But the term and conditions says,,,https://tokensale.civic.com/CrowdsaleTerms.pdf

Quote
After logging into the Crowdsale portal via the Civic App and scanning your QR code, you will
be prompted to select a Purchase Tier.

Does the "prompting" happen once the crowdsale starts? 

It is a little unclear as I have already scanned the code.  Huh
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Can/will the ethereum blockchain get overloaded? on: June 13, 2017, 10:36:08 AM
Can/will the ethereum blockchain get overloaded?

I see this claim from time to time. Some say that with all the new tokens using ethereum the blockchain could/will get overloaded/bloated
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Civic vs Uport? on: June 06, 2017, 06:34:19 AM
Anyone have a view on how they compare?

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The thing about Stratis on: May 23, 2017, 05:06:25 AM
The thing about Stratis that interests me is that programmers don't have to go out and learn a new language (as with Ethereum). Lots of programmers involved in the business world already code in C#. So they can develop apps in a language they know.
Another thing is that Stratis apps will run on side chains so wont bloat the Stratis blockchain. Whereas I think on Ethereum the apps use the Ethereum blockchain (though i could be wrong).

Am I missing anything?
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Not for profit blockchains? on: May 06, 2017, 05:19:09 AM
What is happening in this space?

Do we need some kind of economic incentive in order to keep a blockchain secure?
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Coins that use distributed Byzantine Fault Tolerance? on: May 04, 2017, 04:20:46 AM
Which coins use dBFT?

I know Antshares does...what are the others?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Great article on valuation methodologies for coins on: May 02, 2017, 09:05:09 PM
https://blog.sia.tech/want-to-deflate-the-token-bubble-fix-the-market-cap-indicator-d50f7f1e1ec4

Quote
The token world is getting crazy, but last week’s Gnosis ICO pushed us over the edge. Gnosis investors bought up approximately 4.2% of the total GNO token supply for $12.5 million (250,000 ETH), giving the project a market capitalization of $298 million (as of April 24).
To be clear: this means ICO investors valued Gnosis — an unproven platform that is yet to be launched — at about $300 million. Moreover, the GNO token does not have any actual purpose except to exchange for WIZ tokens at some point in the future.
We at Sia feel that this ICO insanity cannot continue in its current form — something must give. If the bubble bursts, it will inflict damage on every token, including those that are most reputable.
Many in the community want to slow and eventually stop this trend. We think that, while investors are by no means rational, they need access to the best possible information in order to make informed decisions. However, it is clear that investors are completely misvaluing most tokens. So what gives?
Our hypothesis: the market cap indicator is highly flawed.
Market cap is so powerful because it allows investors to quickly assess total valuation of an asset. A flawed market cap calculation means that investors are not able to properly value a token without doing extensive research.
There are two major inputs to market cap: total supply, which is required to properly calculate present market cap, and inflation, which can be used to predict future total supply and therefore future market cap.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / An app that will give an alert when volume or price increases on any coin? on: January 30, 2017, 08:27:19 AM
I would really love to have an app (or something) that gave me an alert if volume or price increased significantly on any alt coin.
Is this possible?
Does it exist now?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Using solar power to run a mining setup?? on: December 24, 2016, 05:15:47 AM
Has anyone ever used a solar panel to run a mining set up?

or..does anyone know how much power a standard mining set up uses?

I found an old thread here.

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ZCash...500 BTC worth mined every day? on: November 21, 2016, 07:00:27 PM
Zcash is trading at 0.075 BTC.

7200 Zcash are mined each day. About 500 BTC worth. About $350,000 each day

The founders reward is 20% for the next 4 years.

Therefore if prices stay where they are the founders will get about $70,000  every day for the next 4 years.

Is that right?
