1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / A Coin backed with FIAT money and Investment Account? on: September 11, 2014, 02:17:28 PM
A very low inflationary PoS crypto-currency which is entirely backed with Investment account and tied to FIAT money.
A coin which is sold and bought on demand and supply, - and acts like a share of the portfolio.

Is there any of those out there yet?

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Crapcoins vs Promising Coins. Short Guide: How to tell the difference? on: May 11, 2014, 08:37:02 AM
Theres has been a truckload of coins incoming lately. Im open to additional suggestions, but this is my guidlines. How to tell if the coin looks promising or not.
For the sake of fairness, i will never mention any coin name in this post.

Promising coins have. (in random order)

1. Decent looking OP. No amateur graphics. No Google translated text.

2. Active development. Quick engagement to solve problems. Developer posts are polite and informative. Capability to ignore trolls and take control over announcement topic without deleting the posts.

3. Source code. No plain clone with code practically unchanged.

There are plenty of guides in forums of "how to clone an altcoin". However, those guides are not exactly complete. They leave out some rather important parts, which dont brake the code, but will give you a hint if developer has done full research about the code or not.
I will give only one hint, since i dont want to spoil "the crapcoin spotting game" entirely. Take a look at main.cpp and main net pchMessageStart. If you are familiar with many coins source code, then it might be also good idea to review how GetProofOfWorkReward (and GetProofOfStakeReward) is solved and does it differ from its parent code or majority of coins in any way?

4. Does it have functioning testnet and testnet parameters in source code are published? This is rather obvious mistake, which many old souce code coins and simple clones forget or are unable to provide. They get main net working and launch without thinking about how they attract developers and test major updates in future.

5. Transparency. There is nothing wrong about having premine, if transparency is provided. This is rather personal opinion, but the point is that honesty should win more trust than 0 premine claim.

6. Algorithm? Crapcoin does not magically transform in to promising coin by changing its algorithm. Many people fall in to this trap. Promising coins can succeed with any algorithm. There are plenty of ways to provide equality for miners. The most obvious way is having multipool. Take a look at announcement subforum. X11 is a hot topic. Now take a look about how many promising X11 coins are there? The answer may surprise you. Of course this also applies to scrypt coins.

7. Instamine coins. Again. This is only personal opinion, so please dont slap me for this. Long story short - Coins with less than 3 months mining period = profit for very small circle of people. And who wins the most? Developers of those coins.
Yes, often there is a nice junk of profit if you engage those rapid coins early, but i believe that this trend is about to die soon. There are simply too many of those coins on the market. Soon no one will care to buy and if there is no buy pressure, there will be no profit for anyone.


 Do not be ignorant and naive. Do your own research. Invest smart. Everyone can get lucky once or twice, but real profit will come from serious coins with smart and dedicated teams behind them.

Feel free to add your points and opinions. I will edit this post when there is broad consensus that it is a good idea.

9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / One card being slower than others... on: December 11, 2013, 04:14:41 PM
Im pulling my hair here, since i cant find a solution to my problem
Im running 4 x 280x cards. All identical. All running identical custom bios.
1 card is slower than others. Does not matter if PC runs a singe, dual, three or four cards.
This slower card does not throttle or have any issues whatsoever. No rejected shares, temps are fine. Everything works just beautifully besides it being 40-50khs slower than other cards.
I tried:
- changing slots
- changing extenders
- changing bios
- changing AMD drivers
- changing config file settings
- changing power cables

Nothing works.
I use no monitor, No RDP.
Im out of ideas. Please generate some for me.
Im running W8 64bit. Using CGminer with CGremote and VNC remote.
Thank you.
