1  Other / Off-topic / RIP Scott Weiland on: December 04, 2015, 10:51:21 PM
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/scott-weiland-dead-at-48-20151204

Scott Weiland, the lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver was found dead in his tour bus yesterday at the age of 48. I've been sad all day after hearing the news - I have so many fantastic memories of good times with his music playing in the background. He was truly a rock star.

RIP Scott and thank you for the wonderful music you gave to the world.

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [PPC] Ideas to take it to the next level! on: November 16, 2013, 03:49:39 PM
Hi everyone, I am heavily invested in PPC as I have no doubt it's value is going to increase dramatically. I'm starting this thread so everyone can share their ideas on how to take PPC to the next level. I have two thoughts myself and I'd love to hear feedback as well as some other ideas.

1) China

IMHO, China should be a priority right now. We've got BTC-e for PPC trading which is great - all we need now is at least one Chinese exchange with large volumes to add PPC and then we're off to the races. I know we have Cryptsy and a couple of other exchanges as well but the volumes are miniscule.  Also, to be frank, the US is no place to be running anything that has anything to do with money.

Chinese exchanges are going crazy right now with people piling into BTC… what do you think would happen if PPC was available alongside BTC on one of the major Chinese exchanges, at a mere fraction of the price?

2) Community / Consensus

Many people are outraged at the Bitcoin Foundation as they are acting like a bunch of elitist regulators who are moving farther and farther away from the original vision of Satoshi. There's been talk about blacklisting coins, we've got the friggin Winklevoss twins trying to act like the Hunt Brothers, people begging US authorities to regulate BTC and now apparently there's some Mellon guy (who comes from a wealthy 1% elitist family) getting in on the act. Do you think when Satoshi created Bitcoin he hoped and prayed that one day it would be accepted by US-based bureaucrats? I think not.

Peercoin has a great chance to live up to it's name - PEERcoin. The peers, or users of the system should have input into the direction of the coin - not a handful of large holders or a "foundation" and certainly not any government.

We could set up some sort of voting system where all users of Peercoin could vote on any major changes - this way it will truly be the PEER coin!

Anyway, just my 2 Satoshis on ideas to take PPC to the next level. I'd love to hear some more!

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Looking to trade an activated, funded Ripple account for LTC on: May 22, 2013, 10:51:25 AM
Hi all, I'm looking to trade an activated, funded Ripple account for 3.62 LTC. I funded it with all I could leaving only 175 XRP in my main account and 198 XRP in the one I am offering for trade. That's more than enough for the reserve and to establish a trust line with a gateway such as Bitstamp in order to move BTC in and buy more XRPs if desired.

If you do the math, 3.62 LTC is worth about $10.59 on BTC as of me writing this. XRP values fluctuates widely on the exchange but Bitstamp sells it for 40 per USD meaning the total value of the account in USD is a little under $5.

I can assure you I am not trying to squeeze an extra $5 out of someone - I just happen to need exactly 3.62 LTC and quickly, hence the reason I came up with the idea for this trade.

Besides, it's not that easy to start a Ripple wallet from scratch as you either need to receive the initial XRP in a giveaway or go beg on a forum thread for someone to start you off before you can trade with Btistamp. I've got everything ready to go for you - just login and start exploring the awesomeness that is Ripple!

Please send me a PM  if interested. We can confirm the transaction in the thread of course.

I registered in 2011 and I am still a newbie with only 1 post!

Actually, I completely forgot about this account as most the time I am browsing these forums on my bro's computer with his account.... about time I get my own account started I think Smiley

Fun and exciting times to be involved with Bitcoin, that's for sure!
