2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / help with creating a coin for my testnet on: January 15, 2014, 02:11:15 AM
Dont worry this is just for me to set up in a testlab, I wont spam it on at all - just trying to learn

Ive been following and have pretty much got it all down for the most part or so I thought.  Im at the stage getting close to 2/3 of the way down that page checking the testnet with 2 machines but both of their debug.log files show the same thing:

connect() failed after select(): Connection refused

Both are to runing with options "-testnet -connect=IP_OF_OTHER_MACHINE"

Now it looks like foobar is gone, so I was forced to use smallchange's git since thats what the author recommended.  I went and changed all the paraeters it specified, and also port numbers, and went through steps to generate a merkleroot and then the genesis, and thats the point Im at now with the 2 clients trying to connect.

Any help?
3  Economy / Trading Discussion / any other exchanges like coinbase for ACH transfer for US banks? on: December 08, 2013, 04:41:51 PM
Coinbase PISSES me off continually.  Any other US based exchanges that allow pulling from bank accounts to buy BTC?
4  Economy / Trading Discussion / question on bct-e on: December 07, 2013, 05:50:19 PM
Does BTC-e allow you to buy/sell BTC with USD, and do they maintain a USD account on their site that you can buy/sell on highs/lows to make some $?  If so, what other sites operate this way?  It seems like with coinbase, whenever you buy/sell BTC, they use your external banking accounts.
5  Economy / Speculation / China banning BTC, what if USA does on: December 06, 2013, 06:55:16 PM
Is is generally accepted that this is one of the reasons BTC is dropping in value to USD yesterday and today?  IF so, why?  because there is no longer a large demand for it?

If so, what happens if the US bans it?  Could we expect it to drop more?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Has there ever been a coin geard to neutrality? (FRK doesnt count) on: December 04, 2013, 02:33:19 PM
By neutrality, I mean NOT designed for the benefit of the designer or early adopters? This coin would have the following features:

0. absolutely no premining
1. More than 2 days notification
2. starting difficulty fairly high
3. distribution of the coin such that most coins are not granted in the first few months
4. large number of coins
5. very fast notifications
6. non GPU/ASIC/FPGA minable

Something like that would IMO be flocked to
7  Other / Beginners & Help / cryptsy on: December 02, 2013, 11:58:05 PM
How do you use this?  How can I click on an open buy or sell offer and agree to it and execute?  It seeems lie I just have to create a new offer each time?  How are other people accepting my offers?

And do both buyer and seller pay fees?

Anyone know?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / and another cryptsy question on: November 29, 2013, 10:13:22 PM
Thanks for any help here.

Im 100% new to any kind of commodities/currencies exchanging.  My question is regarding the buy and sell windows of any Cryptsy market, say LTC/BTC.

So on the LTC/BTC Market webpage, there are a few windows: buy, sell, and last 20.  Assuming I want to buy, Why cant I click on an open sell order that I see in the SELL section, and complete the trade?  It seems like I have to create a brand new order, not necessarily associated with any existing open order.

And does both the seller and buyer end up paying fees?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Does cryptsy still charge you the trading fee if you cancel a buy/sell order? on: November 29, 2013, 07:39:35 PM
as subject line states
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / NXT vs. eMunie on: November 26, 2013, 07:19:56 PM
These are 2 new coins, both consider themselves 2nd gen, not based on original BTC code, both claiming next generation features...  NMC is just released, eMunie is in beta.....

my bet is the 2 devs knew each other and had some falling out, etc.

regardless, some very exciting changes coming on to the scene, i believe

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / after all BTC has been mined, what then? on: November 21, 2013, 02:52:03 AM
As I understand it, then 100% of all hashing resources will be to process transactions?

1) how will the system distribute transactions to be processed (for that matter, how does it happen now)
2) can you bypass fees altogether by using your own wallet and hashing to process the payment?
3) will pools then cease to be viable?
4) since fees will be based on byte size of transaction, what impact will using different bitcoin addresses for each transaction be versus nout having different ones?
15  Other / Beginners & Help / is there an altcoin that addresses any of BTC's issues? on: November 20, 2013, 08:47:12 PM
Such as size of the ledger, risk of the 2/3 vs 1/3 mining ratio and hiding hashes, etc?  And/Or even more ideally, one that implements some kind of escrow.

There is a thread in the regular forums that Id like to participate in but Im a noob.
