InflationCoin dev is always deleted posts that tell the truth... Most likely the same dev as JW, EQUAL, JOBS, BEEP and many more premine scam coins.


2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Cryptsy problems - How to make sure that Cryptsy doesn't gain out of it on: January 16, 2016, 06:12:39 PM
Hi All,

I would suggest that ALL coins would make a version 2. Why? Cryptsy is holding a lot of small coins, KARMA, LOT, MOON, LEAF, ....

maybe they have a supply of 80% of all the outstanding coins, so we should all make KARMA2, LOT2, MOON2, LEAF2,... type of coins and swap the coins that aren't on cryptsy.

This will mean Cryptsy wouldn't be able to dump their coins on other markets and make another few millions and it can give the current owners of those coins maybe some money back if they were able to withdraw at least a few coins...
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Was BOT created by the same people as DIBS, DIGS, GRID? BOT SCAM? on: September 13, 2015, 07:25:55 PM
I believe that everybody knew that BOT was just another coin launched from the DIGS, DIBS, GRID group, but now on another exchange as Bittrex made it difficult for them to launch it on Bittrex.

Newbie account

Promising nice feature

Same pattern, same pump and dumping pattern.

Pitty for people that sold their money, but it is their own fault, they just do better research before investing in this kind of coins.

If you want to launch a new coin and need a escrow. For only 0.50 i will do your escrow. PM me.

Time to get back in Altcoin world. Freedom coin is my third altcoin project. The first one was Citizencoin what went in the wrong direction. ROScoin was taken over by Vegasguy. ROScoin was 8 month managed by me. It had a ICO price of 25 sats and hit 278 at the highest level. It is currently still trading on Bittrex at around ICO levels and this is pretty rarely in altcoin world.

I will launch a new coin and the plan is to achieve the same success as ROSCoin. The cost of ROSCoin was so high that the real profit for the original ICO was nothing, i even made a loss on it. The website was pretty expensive, then services like Mobile staking was paid for and never been delivered etc.

Freedom coin will be a totally new coin that will have again a fair ICO price that give the opportunity for all ICO investors to make profit out of it. ICO money will be better invested and no services will be paid before they were delivered. To make sure that we don't make the same mistakes as before.

There are some people that follow me, and call me a scammer, some of them call me a brilliant trader. It is all up to you to decide if you join this project or not. Investing in altcoins is always a risk. Even investing in real banks was a risk, remember the bank crisis and how much people lost in Greece because of this.

The coin will be ICO friendly, meaning. NO POW as with all those big mining farms, it is terrible and it doesn't give people fair chance to mine enough coins, those mining farms are mining 80% of all coins, all for free. only electricity cost and most of the time those big mining farms are located in countries with a electricty cost of almost nothing. So I don't need any mining pools. This is different then with ROSCoin as miners dumped a lot and put some pressure on the ICO price of ROS.

POS will be setup very low, why? We don't want to create a lot of inflation.

Superblocks will be available to make sure that people keep coins in wallet and secure the network.

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / WHY LTC COINS ARE SO HOT AND NINJA/ICO COINS ARE HAVING A HARD TIME? on: June 12, 2015, 09:23:34 PM
One of the most important question that people should ask is why are coins like MEOW/FLAP/KARM/LOT/ZEIT all moving up nicely lately. Also why are coins like IFC/EAC/ZET are moving up lately.

I can see a few reasons why.

1. People are turning back to old coins

Why? Lately a lot of (so called FAIR) NINJA launches were launched that were heavily dumped on the (so called believiers) of the coin.
Lately a lot of ICO has failed to deliver any returns. ICO coins are directly dropping throw the sell wall placed by the exchanges. Look at BNB, 007, FCS, ...


2. There is a LTC halvering coming

People want to buy LTC type of coins as LTC will be rare, a block halvering is coming in less then 70 days

3. People know what to expect from old coins, a lot of those coins are trading on Cryptsy and a lot of people are not really crazy about cryptsy, but if those old coins weren't there then alt coin market would be gone.

So advice:

Buy old coins, and stay away from the ninja launch scam and ICO scams.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / ROSCOIN - Celebration - Be there ;) on: May 28, 2015, 12:21:56 PM
ROSCOIN is now more then 8 month old and we want to celebrate this, so i would like to invite all investors/traders/cryptocoin believers for a meet and greed to discuss how ROSCoin will see the future for the coming months/years. As said from the beginning this is a long term project and ROSCoin is here to stay. The meeting will be Amsterdam, more details to follow.

PS: There will be some cool drinks on my account of course. This is one of the first milestones in the history of ROSCoin and it should be celebrate.

PRESS RELEASE

UMBRELLA ANNOUNCES A SUITE OF INSURED CRYPTOCURRENCIES

COINS THE TERM “CRYPTSURANCE”

 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Umbrella Holdings
Media Contact: support@umbrella.holdings
Websites: http://www.umbrella.holdings  •  http://www.cdic.us

(Los Angeles, CA - July 15, 2014)  Umbrella is proud to unveil the world's first fully insured cryptocurrencies (cryptsurance).  Umbrella is a basket of insured cryptocurrencies that are designed to hedge against the loss of its overlying cryptocurrency.  A secondary cryptocurrency by nature, Umbrella is designed to be merge-minded alongside each algorithms corresponding industry leader.  Umbrella-BTC to Bitcoin, Umbrella-LTC to Litecoin, Umbrella-VTC to Vertcoin, and Umbrella-DRK to Darkcoin.  Using the ticker symbols UBTC, ULTC, UVTC, and UDRK, respectively.  Additional Umbrella securities will be added once clear leaders emerge for newer algorithms such as SHA3 and X13.  Similarly, if a new industry leader emerges for any particular algorithm, we will create new securities around it as well.  Since Umbrella are the only cryptocurrencies to be insured and backed by the Cryptocurrency Deposit Insurance Corporation or (CDIC), your currency is safeguarded against theft, hacks, and insolvency on participating exchanges.  Umbrella cryptocurrencies are also insured when held in the CDIC’s free cold storage service.  This means that you can now safely diversify your assets by allocating a percentage of your portfolio into Umbrella cryptos.

Umbrella solves one of the major problems of owning cryptocurrencies.  If your cryptocurrency is lost by an exchange due to a hack or insolvency, your options are extremely limited in recovering your losses.  While Umbrella cannot reimburse your loss of the overlying currency, through the CDIC, we can reimburse any loss of Umbrella currencies as incurred by the exchange.  For example, holding equal amounts (in value) of Bitcoin and Umbrella-BTC would offer a substantial upgrade in asset protection compared to owning Bitcoin alone.  Having asset protection in place by reducing your exposure is a fundamental requirement in today’s financial markets.  Wall Street has a variety of ways to deal with risk, from derivatives like options and futures, to more exotic offerings like forwards and swaps.  It all comes down to minimizing risk; Umbrella makes this a seamless process.  While Umbrella does not solve all the problems plaguing today’s cryptocurrencies or exchanges, we offer something no other cryptocurrency can, which is peace of mind.

Working with the CDIC, a portion of each block reward is allocated into an insurance fund and held as collateral for claims.  These amounts will halve at certain points based on implied risk.  Participating exchanges will receive a seal of approval guaranteeing that your Umbrella holdings are fully insured.  While we cannot fully comment on the CDIC’s approval process or policies, we do know that the exchange must provide proof of liabilities and pass a series of penetration tests before being insured.  This ensures that the exchange is doing its job, and reassures its customers that it’s a safe place to store digital currency.  These policies are provided at $0 premium to the exchange due to the unique Crypto-Asset Backed Insurance or (CABI) system devised by the CDIC.

Finally a reason for merged-mining!  Currently, most merged-mined coins linked to their larger brethren suffer from high difficulty, which drives down profitability.  This makes merged-mining an afterthought in most cases and it’s simply not worth the time or effort.  Umbrella changes this model where profitability is no longer the sole reason for mining, but rather insurance becomes the motive.  Merged-mining is also green by nature as the work is already being done for the primary coin.  In addition to keeping the network secure, merged-mining offers no interruption or loss of hash-rate on the primary coin.  In other words, no extra work is needed by the miner other than the initial configuration.  You can now mine Bitcoin, Litecoin, Vertcoin, or Darkcoin and it’s corresponding Umbrella currency in parallel.  Pool operators can take advantage of this as well, possibly eliminating pool fees in lieu of keeping mined Umbrella cryptos.  This would add a layer of protection to the exchange with little modification to its core infrastructure.  So the only question remains: Why wouldn't you mine peace of mind alongside your primary coin?

Hedging can’t help us escape the hard reality of the risk-return trade off that is the cryptocurrency markets, but we can limit our exposure through insurance.  By definition, Umbrella means any kind of general protection.  Umbrella is a currency that is insured and scarce by design, a currency that is designed to be acquired and held like a contract.  These properties will lend itself to low volatility and a stable market price.  We also believe this winning combination will lead to a good store of value.  This will play an important role if the asset ever needs to be sold to offset the loss of another cryptocurrency.  In the unregulated world of cryptocurrencies, few tools exist to protect the miners who are the backbone of the industry; we intend to change this.


###




How does it work?

In a nutshell, Crypto-Asset Backed Insurance or (CABI) is what makes Umbrella possible with no premium required from the exchange or miner.  A portion of Umbrellas block reward is automatically allocated into an insurance fund as it is mined.  The insurance block reward is set to decrease geometrically, with a (TBD)% reduction rate, every (TBD)# of blocks.  The CDIC will use proprietary algorithms to calculate the decreasing insurance allocation block reward/rate or (diaBR/r).  A byproduct of reducing the insurance block reward is an increased reward, for standard blocks.  One of the models used for calculating the (diaBR/r) is a modified Monte Carlo Method (VaR) or Value-at-Risk measure algorithm.  This algorithm factors in the historical data of failed exchanges, the amount of Umbrella holdings per exchange, and it’s distribution on the network.  Unlike the Greeks, duration and convexity, or beta, which only pertain to certain asset classes, value-at-risk is general.  This generality makes it suitable for our application.  These metrics will yield the rate at which insurance block rewards are generated and halved.

The allocated cryptocurrency is then held as collateral by the CDIC for insurance claims.  The CDIC fills the role of underwriter, insurer, and escrow.  The CDIC will also process and investigate all claims made against cryptocurrency exchanges that hold active policies.  Exchanges can apply for free coverage, provided they meet all the *criteria.  Umbrella is considered a beta product until sufficient data is available to complete our metrics and code in the (diaBR/r).  Until that time, Umbrella is launching with a 1:1 ratio between standard and Insured block rewards.  This will kick-start the insurance fund and pave the way for every miner to reduce his or her exposure to risk.  For more information please visit www.cdic.us.
 
The CDIC modified Monte Carlo Method (VaR); value-at-risk measure for calculating the (diaBR/r) is specified in three items:

• Historical data for exchange failures and hacks resulting in lost funds.
• Amount of Umbrella holdings per exchange.
• The distribution of Umbrella holdings on the network.
 
* Exchanges must provide proof of liabilities and pass a series of penetration tests before being insured.



Coming Soon.

I am a compulsive gambler, where are the gambling websites?
Sorry, Umbrella cryptos are not meant to be used in this fashion.  People may choose to develop these websites, but we will not actively seek out these types of projects.  On the flip-side, gambling websites would benefit from Umbrella products as an added layer of protection.  We would encourage these types of sites to hold Umbrella as a way to protect it’s customers and self.

Why aren’t we buying our way onto exchanges?
Umbrella is not looking to become the next pump and dump alt-coin.  We are here to fill a gap in the market that has existed for some time.  We will not support buying our way onto any exchange.  The CDIC is currently reaching out to a number of exchanges in an effort to make they’re work more transparent.  We anticipate exchanges who are onboard to have access to a larger customer base.  Coexisting as partners would be beneficial to all.

Where is the IPO?
We believe in letting the market determine a securities price (as it should be).  No IPO, ever.

Why POW and not POS?
Proof of work has stood the test of time.  We have always attributed POW coins to being more akin to a commodity.  We feel this element is irreplaceable.  This was one of the driving forces for our initial involvement in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general.  With that being said, we have no plans to release a POS coin.

Why release multiple cryptocurrencies, huh?
We took notice of the gargantuan amount of hash pointed at Bitcoin, Litecoin, and other popular cryptocurrencies.  We were not looking to compete with these giants.  We didn’t believe our currency would displace dominant industry leaders with large followings, large cash influx, and entire ecosystems built around them.  We had to be honest with ourselves and figure out a way to coexist with them.  Coming from a use-case perspective, we knew we had something unique that would bring value to the ecosystem.  By taking the secondary, or auxiliary blockchain role, we would allow ourselves to break into a large market with the path of least resistance.  By not forcing the miner to sacrifice his hash for Umbrella, we feel we have put ourselves in the best position to succeed.  Choosing one leader from each algorithm allows almost anyone access to Umbrella, no matter what they mine.

Why is the term “Hedging” used when referring to Umbrella?
Let’s first look at the definition of “hedge”.  (Taken from investopedia.com & investinganswers.com)

Hedge: Making an investment to reduce the risk of adverse price movements in an asset. Normally, a hedge consists of taking an offsetting position in a related security, such as a futures contract.
How it is used: Hedging is like buying insurance. It is protection against unforeseen events, but investors usually hope they never have to use it. Consider why almost everyone buys homeowner's insurance. Because the odds of having one’s house destroyed are relatively small, this may seem like a foolish investment. But our homes are very valuable to us and we would be devastated by their loss. Using options to hedge your portfolio essentially does the same thing. Should a stock or portfolio take an unforeseen turn, holding an option opposite of your position will help to limit your losses.


Umbrella uses the term to describe a risk management strategy.  By owning two different cryptocurrencies; Bitcoin and Umbrella-BTC for example, you are reducing your exposure to risk by diversifying.  Umbrella takes this one step further by being a fully insured cryptocurrency, this transfers the remainder of risk to the CDIC.  Since Umbrella borrows various methods and strategies from a host of securities, it is hard to classify it as solely insurance.



Example: John owns 1 BTC and an equal amount (in value) of Umbrella-BTC.  Bob owns 1 BTC.  Both are held on Exchange XYZ.  Exchange XYZ fails and declares bankruptcy protection.  John opens up a claim to the CDIC and gets his Umbrella-BTC returned to him.  John is still out 1 BTC, but not completely wiped out by the exchange collapse.  On the other hand, Bob has lost all his money and has no where to turn for help.  He posts a sympathy thread on reddit hoping for donations :-(

Why do I need Umbrella?
As a community we have embraced autonomous digital currencies and have driven them to great heights.  We have enjoyed all the benefits they provide, from decentralization, to a certain amount of anonymity for everyday purchases.  The achilles heel is they are only as good as the exchange who holds them.  A look at history begins to paint a picture of extreme loss, fraud, and other misuse by these “trusted” exchanges.  Exchange fraud and insolvency have all too frequently become common headlines.  We want to see Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies flourish, these irresponsible acts are inexcusable as they tarnish the image of something we truly believe in.  The miner is almost always in the crosshair and has no where to turn for help.  We envision decentralised exchanges helping to solve some of the problems.  Other issues will not be solved anytime soon, such as the conversion to fiat.  Since fiat is not on a blockchain, we see no way for a complete decentralised exchange.  

Enter Umbrella, the merge-minable aspect makes it effortless to mine your own insurance without sacrificing your hash.  Move it to a trusted CDIC approved exchange, or offline to the CDIC’s cold storage vault and you are covered, simple as that.

How Can I Get Involved?
We are always looking for people to get involved in any way possible.  We would like to take this opportunity to start the Umbrella Ambassador Program.  We have set aside a portion of pre-allocation funds to compensate these team members.  What does an ambassador look like?  They are the ones populating our Q&A’s, forums and Sub-Reddit.  They are the ones tweeting away helping Umbrella gain traction.  They are the bounty hunters and the advocates.  Everyone can contribute, we understand people from all walks of life with a host of skillsets subscribe to these forums.  PM us for more details.  Let’s build something great together!  



Much to Do...
We have a long road ahead of us.  Product development includes a single multi-algo wallet once all Umbrella cryptos are finalized and out of beta.  The wallet will include in-app updates and a host of other features.  We are also working with the CDIC to insure Umbrella crypto’s while being held locally in their wallet.  We are working on several ways to satisfy their security requirements. We have a number of test environments setup that include two factor authentication via a token for the wallet, an Umbrella Linux distro similar to Qubes which would secure the wallet by isolation (Based on a secure bare-metal hypervisor - Xen).  Also, we are playing with some facial recognition API’s!

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / ICO markets and their returns? on: October 31, 2014, 09:07:11 AM
I've been checking the ICO markets for some time, and i notice the same all the time. ICO on Bittrex are mostly good for DEV owners and ICO on C-CEX and Allcoin are mostly good for investors.

Example:

MARYJ was a ICO at 170 sats on C-CEX, this coin hit +7000sats a few weeks ago, meaning big returns
CND was a ICO at 180 sats on Allcoin.com, this coin hit +3000sats yesterday, meaning big returns

SWIFT was a ICO on Bittrex at 8000sats, this hit 30000 sats, what was not bad, but a lot less return then MARYJ and CND
MNE was a ICO at 5500 sats on Bittrex, it hit 10000sats but already dropped below ICO price in a few days.

MARYJ, CND are still trading above ICO price and SWIFT, MNE are trading below.

So this makes my statement very clear. If you want to make real money then you have to join those smaller exchange ICO and promote it so that it hit Bittrex as the returns are huge.

That is my opinion Smiley

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / DOPE the next CANN? on: October 14, 2014, 08:15:25 AM
When CANN was trading at $20K in August nobody cares, but look now $2.5M. Will DOPE follow the same direction as CANN with the possibility of buying drugs with DOPE coins? Will DOPE that is now only worth $6K be the next CANN coin?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Ethancoin the hidden goldmine? on: August 26, 2014, 04:38:28 PM
Is Ethancoin the hidden goldmine? Trading on c-cex with a increasing volume. A DEV that is adding more and more features to the coin, still under the radar for most of the people.

I believe we will hear more and more from Ethancoin in the near future.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Bittrex always adding the wrong coins, but why? on: August 23, 2014, 09:56:07 PM
It is very easy how new coins are hitting Bittrex. Most of the new coin owners already have a big amount of BTCs to create 'FAKE' volume on smaller exchanges, because of this huge 'FAKE' volume, Bittrex start adding the coin on their website. It doesn't really matter if a coin offers something. They only look at volume, and what happens the big BTCs owners that are launching their coins are just using the 'FAKE' volume technic, it happened with USE and UNAT. Smaller coins, meaning coins owner with NO BTC volume, are not able to create this 'FAKE' volume, but really trying to create a difference. One good example that i follow is 'Ethancoin', no trading volume at all, but a working team, a team that try to add innovation to their coin,but big exchanges doesn't care about REAL DEVs, they only care about volume, about their profit. So to have a successful coin that hit a big marketplace you already have to create 'FAKE' volume and this means BTC!!!

At least that is my point of view. We all know that there are groups of cheaters in the altcoin world. Why not start with rules like 'We don't list a coin on a major exchange when it is not more then 1 month old', make life of those cheater groups more difficult. But then again they will find a way to get around it..

To the PRO owner can you please start acting as a adult, and don't look your thread every five seconds, you are again destroying your own coin by acting like a baby, and people will really get angry at you, and honestly you're risking your life by doing all kind of shitty things.
