1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Blockchain Games that AREN'T on Ethereum? on: August 12, 2018, 04:59:46 AM
Hey all, trying to research some options available in regards to blockchain games that are not hosted on Ethereum. By blockchain game I mean a game in which moves are situated on the blockchain, not a game that simply has a cryptocurrency economy. Games that are released as well as in development are both fine. Here are the ones I'm aware of:

Bitcoin/Counterparty: Satoshis Place, Rare Pepe Party, Mafia Wars, Bitcorn

Litecoin: Crypto Monsters

Steem: Steem Monsters

XAYA: Treat Fighter, Soccer Manager Crypto

EOS: EOS Knights

Any others?

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Team Behind GameCredits and MobileGO has Split on: July 29, 2018, 12:00:14 AM
Hey all, wanted to highlight a serious issue that I have recently been exposed to.

Over past weeks, there has been massive discontent from community members as it has become increasingly apparent that the executive in charge of GNation have done a lackluster job, to put it lightly- traveling and living lavishly without doing anything in terms of actual development.

Days ago, it was exposed that a faction of long-time GameCredits supporters employed by GNation unhappy with management have split to create GameCredits Foundation. This is massively unsettling because we now have a situation where the subset of employees responsible for what development has taken place over the past year+ are disconnected from the $200 million + ICO funds. Investors in ICO that have stuck around are in a position where their money sits with what amounts to little more than conmen.

I wanted to share this all with you because it represents an unsettling nature of ICOs which suggests that there is really no accountability by teams to deliver what they plan to do. This is coming from one of the oldest projects in cryptocurrency.

What do you guys think this will mean for the future of both currencies? Which have both absolutely tanked in the past weeks regarding the atmosphere of surrounding communities. Are there other currencies that could see similar fates?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / MyWish 10-100x Growth? on: July 08, 2018, 12:32:31 AM
Hey all,

wanted to open a discussion about a small cap projects I am a huge supporter of: MyWish. Here's a a few metrics about MyWish:

* Market cap is under US$2 million
* Each token is valued at about $0.09
* Tokens traded for over $3 at peak

Now, as for the project itself:

MyWish is a smart contract market place. Users can pay with MyWish (and for certain contracts, ETH as will) to create any of 10 smart contracts across three blockchains: ETH, NEO, BTC (soon EOS as well). This marketplace is live, and it's the only project to offer something like this (others still in development)

Days ago, they launched their airdrop contract, which automatically handles airdrops for projects, something virtually all projects use. Utilization of MyWish can reduce gas fees by up to 30%. Again, the ONLY project to offer such a service. They also offer a crowdsale and token creation contract, which means anyone can create their own ICO entirely through MyWish. So far, over 1,300 smart contracts have been created through MyWish. At recent conferences, 10 projects indicated they would be operating their ICO through with MyWish contracts, and many more indicated they will be using the airdrop contracts.

What makes MyWish different from other projects is the team always hits deadlines. They've never "re-calculated" their roadmap. They've simply hit every single deadline they've placed. We're talking dozens of developments without hiccup.

Now, what's exciting is MyWish has indicated they are in communication with Huobi Pro and another top 10 exchange for listing. Currently, MyWish volume is very low due to it only being traded on Cryptopia, which has its own issues. The bear market + lack of exchange has crippled the price, but when MyWish is listed on a major exchange, I think the sky's the limit.

What do you guys think? I think MyWish is criminally undervalued. Do you agree, or do you have any reasoning to explain why I am wrong?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Best SEC-Compliant ICOs? on: May 21, 2018, 06:01:41 PM
Hey all, I'm looking to put together a list of current ICOs that are compliant with the US SEC. Of course, most offerings do not meet this criteria, so I'm sure this is a very niche list.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Decentralized Autonomous Organizations Running/in Development? on: May 05, 2018, 02:07:33 AM
Hey all, I'm doing a research paper on blockchain technology as a mode of production, in which a large portion will be focused on the concept of Decentralized Autonomous Organizations. I know of two current ones: DASH budgeting and DigixDAO, and one in development: Chimaera DAU.

Of course, I know there is potentially others currently up and running and I'm sure plenty more in development or conception stages. Does anyone know of some other examples of DAOs I can explore further?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Cryptopia Fee Shares?? on: February 28, 2018, 05:25:06 PM
I've seen very little information about CEFS, and wanted to know if anyone had researched it. For those who are unaware, 4.5% of Cryptopia's fees are shared as monthly dividends with 6,300 CEFS. That means 1 share equals .0007% of all fees. With Cryptopia's current volume and CEFS prices, the ROI is about 15%. This (I believe) is better than KuCoin Shares.

I imagine prices will dump pretty hard after today, as this is the day dividends are paid to holders. It may drop as low as .15 BTC per share in the next couple of days. Wanted to know if any holders are lurking around and can provide their opinions?
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Estimating the Mining Capabilities of University Network? on: January 03, 2018, 05:41:39 PM
Hey everyone, my school is offering an "innovation challenge" that brings new initiatives to the school that brings in more $$/helps costs. Every summer and winter break, only a fraction of the network's bandwidth and computing power is ever used, meaning the school is paying for a lot of network and hardware to just sit. I'd like to propose the network installs mining software that mines BTC, LTC, and ETH at a safe % of CPU/GPU usage during the three month summer vacation and one month winter vacation. First of all, is it even a worthwhile proposition, after electricity costs? This is for a small school of 1400.
8  Other / Beginners & Help / Best Place to Upload Crypto Podcast? on: December 16, 2017, 12:27:13 AM
A week ago I was on a road trip and recorded a  6 hour brain dump of everything I know and learned over the 4.5 years I've been involved with crypto, broken up into different sections. Where would be the best place to upload this so people can listen and share for free?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Cryptopia Withdrawal Issues? on: November 17, 2017, 09:21:42 PM
I input an Eth withdrawal request on Cryptopia 40 minutes ago... it's still pending. I was transferring funds over to livecoin to buy dumped OTN...  which has now passed. Normally wouldn't care too much but Cryptopia has a tab dedicated to arbitrage, which often times requires moving funds quickly. How can they advertise arbitrage if they withdraw funds at a snail's pace? Unacceptable.

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Is GameCredits not the best looking coin right now? on: October 24, 2017, 07:25:57 PM
GameCredits (and by proxy, MobileGO) look too good to be true right now. Both these coins remained relatively unscathed in recent BTC climb to 6k, and yesterday, perhaps the biggest partnership for any crypto project took place between GameCredits and Unity:

"I'm incredibly proud to announce one of our most important partnerships ever. GameCredits Inc. has partnered with the multi-billion dollar gaming company Unity Technologies to provide the gamecredits store as a built in Unity standard. Some of Unity's most popular games include Temple Run, Pokemon Go, Rust, Hearthstone and Assassin's Creed Identity. They also are responsible for over 50% of all mobile game development (34% of the top 1000 games), about 140,000 games total. The Unity SDK we announced before is just a small piece of the puzzle. Rather than just allowing developers to build apps for our store, publishing to our store will be the same process of uploading a Unity game to google play or the app store. Several Unity developers have been working alongside our developers in our office to make this integration possible. At the same time our teams have agreed to work together to create a unity application that will allow any unity game to have esports capabilities in our companies applications. Essentially adding a simple noninvasive plugin to a unity game will allow gamers to wager and bet on that game using our technologies."

I'm wickedly confident that GameCredits IS going to disrupt the global gaming industry and when that happens it's going to be one of the largest projects in cryptocurrency. Imagine the impact when half of all mobile devs who are Unity have the option to 1) automatically publish their games to the G Store and 2) add MGO wagering to their application. I'm amazed both these coins are still as cheap as they are.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Possible Explanation for (Potentially Unnatural) Explosion of Crypto Market on: August 30, 2017, 05:14:13 AM
If you've been around Bitcoin since 2013 and look at the graphs today- it's almost unbelievable to see how the November runup and subsequent crash pales in comparison to what we've seen this year, and more importantly, the past few weeks. Unlike 2013, this recent run has been accompanied by a similarly, if not more, impressive run by altcoins as a whole. What I think is a major contributor to this run is the whole system altcoins are predicated upon: People buy Bitcoin to buy altcoins.

What this means is that in order to jump on board this crazy train, you've gotta get crypto (and sometimes Eth, and sometimes something else) to get your altcoin of your choice. What this means is that just by dipping your toes in altcoins, you've already helped push everything upwards. When I buy bitcoin to buy CounterParty to buy PepeCash to buy Rare Pepes, I'm pushing a lot of shit upwards with just that single Bitcoin purchase. At the very least, you get double purchasing power when you go fiat>BTC>altcoin.

Of course, the flipside is also true- cashing out alts to fiat has a multiplied downward effect on the markets as well. I think, ultimately, the inability or hesitation to cash Bitcoin to fiat is what this entire market run is predicated upon. Let's be honest, it's still difficult to cash out to fiat, at least exponentially more than it is from alts to BTC. Coupled with tax burden associated with cashing out, and going against some of the core sentiments of cryptocurrency, it makes sense why people by and large aren't cashing out.

I think BitcoinCash is a pretty strong indicator towards this actuality. The free distribution of a token currently valued at close to 10 billion did not shake Bitcoin's price. People didn't cash out their free money in favor of a guaranteed, risk free profit- they either held on to it, sold it in favor of another altcoin, or sold it for Bitcoin and held onto it.

So far it's not an issue, as bigger and bigger players are entering the crypto sphere. Microsoft, JP Morgan, fucking Russia are some pretty big entities. But what happens when bigger and bigger presences stop entering the realm? Or less than that- what if these money multiplier purchase slow down? First people will hand their alts back in for Bitcoin as they see the markets slowing down- and then what? Some people are going to inevitably want to cash out (at least a portion of) their Bitcoin, and then beauty of these secondary, tertiary, etc. markets have turned into a nightmare. Many individuals who started this journey 1-4 years ago have already far surpassed whatever ambitions they may have for their portfolios. Plenty of people will be fine with losing out on some profit if it means they can ensure they still keep most of it.

The counter argument to this, of course, is that the increasing in total market value is due to previous undervaluation alongside new and improving tech in the cryptocurrency realm. While it would be foolish not to agree that great strides and progress has been made in recent times, I don't think it's enough to justify the major run.

Take a look at individual currencies and ask yourself if they are worth their current value. I love Pepecash, but is it really worth 8 million? What about it's clone, Memetic? Is that worth more than 2.5 mil? Is Fuck token worth close to 1 mil? Is Dogecoin worth 200 million? What about BitConnect, a fucking ponzi scheme. Is it worth almost one billion dollars? Is Steem worth almost 350 million? (Many speculate that Yahoo overpaid for Tumblr when they purchased it for 1.1bil in 2013).

Ask yourself if you think the coins you look at every day are worth the amount they trade for.
13  Other / Beginners & Help / Any Resources for Starting a Bitcoin Club/Interest Group at University Level? on: August 30, 2017, 04:02:42 AM
I asked recently on Reddit but didn't get much help. I'm heading back to college in a few days and interested in starting up a general Bitcoin group at my college. I was wondering if there are any current resources available for such endeavors. I've heard of Blockchain Education Network but their website hasn't been updated for a year so I'm assuming that entity fell through. If you have any information please share!!
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / With free electricity: Can a new PC pay for itself? on: July 10, 2017, 10:30:26 PM
Hey guys, I've got 3 years left at college which means 3 years of free electricity. I want to know how feasible/possible it is to purchase a new PC, and earn back the payment via mining. There are no electricity costs, so essentially the question becomes can the PC pay for itself before it bricks or 3 years have passed. I have no previous mining experience outside of renting altcoin miners online with BTC. Am I stupid for even thinking this could work?
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Is TradeSatoshi Safe? Anyone Used It? on: July 02, 2017, 07:01:30 AM
I want to put a bit of BTC into 4chancoin. Some new shitcoin I saw on /biz/. Problem is it's only traded on TradeSatoshi right now. Never heard of this exchange before and doesn't look very professional from what I've seen. If I put a couple hundred dollars of BTC into it am I essentially just donating it to some overseas scam artist? If you've used TradeSatoshi in the past, lmk. Thanks.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / MineThatDigi Wipe means DGB crash harder? on: June 10, 2017, 11:24:41 PM
For those who have been playing on MneThatDigi within the past couple of hours, you've probably seen conversation about people duplicating items in the game. While admins went to bed, a group of players have been creating infinite diamonds for themselves. What this means is the server will most likely have to reset, and anything that happened today will be lost. Like all server resets, angry players may quit, this will hurt playerbse significantly.

Do you think frustrations regarding the Minecraft server will lead to a further downswing in DGB?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / For those anticipating the launch of MineThatDigi... Do you have DGB set aside? on: June 09, 2017, 12:02:25 AM
Really looking forward to the launch of MineThatDigi. Unfortunately, I don't have any DGB accumulated to have as spending money for the start of the server, and I'm afraid to get some now since It's pretty clear I'll be buying in to a bubble. I want to know if there are people out there getting ready for the launch, because although I'm excited for it, I have a feeling it's going to flop. BitVegas, CraftCC, PlayMC, Bitquest, Bitcoin Mines, and the Dogecoin server by Killion devs (can't remember the name) have all lacked success. I've played on all of these servers. While people are hyping the shit out of this as something great for Digibyte, I haven't seen much discussion as to people getting excited to actually play on it. Does anyone care about this as a Minecraft server, rather than a hype avenue?

I've been shilling for Pepecash and GAME since the start of the year (well, been shilling GAME for years). Both have absolutely exploded alongside BTC appreciation. Shoutout to all the other shitcoins that got me where I am today.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Video Game Altcoin General on: May 12, 2017, 02:17:42 PM
I'm sure there are a lot of people out there, alongside myself, who see the huge potential upside in altcoins as mechanisms of video games and virtual economies. Wanted to put together a thread to talk/speculate about individual currencies as well as the industry as a whole.

The coins I am personally familiar with/have held include:

GAME- global video game currency solution
MobileGO- Asset on top of GAME that provides same goal within mobile gaming markets
BitCrystals- currency for Spells of Genesis
HunterCoin- currency mined through a blockchain-based mmo
Nexium- Currency for a MOBA game
Chimaera- System used to register online games and currencies on a decentralized gaming platform (pre-alpha)
Rarepepeprty- Counterparty assets representing stock in upcoming Pepecash-based game, pepe.party

What do you guys think of any or all of these coins? Are there others out there which I'm missing out on?
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / WTT my Pepe Collection for RAREPEPEPRTY shares on: April 03, 2017, 04:27:44 PM
I'm looking to accumulate some Rarepepeprty shares, unfortunately I missed out on buying a bunch @ 1 XCP. Any and all of my Rare Pepes are up for trade. You can check out my collection here: https://rarepepewallet.com/?addr=1LyP9CtRuuayqCYM7cWL62gtEkBemNvBqU&type=gallery

I'll also trade for Pepecash/BTC
