1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / How can we stop Bitcoin's negative publicity?-Rebranding. on: Today at 06:13:56 AM
So I am subscribed to quite a few crypto news and general news websites; and one thing that frustrates me to no end is to see such negative publicity of this currency!
And I know most of the people are of the opinion that bitcoin doesn't really need publicity! But I think a little rebranding is very much needed to put bitcoin in the good light.Try to focus on the good things of it, its qualities, maybe it will help it to stabilize or something?
Whats your say on this?
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is scalability the biggest problem with Bitcoin,and how is it being dealt? on: October 11, 2018, 05:34:10 AM
As we all know ,that a block is added when a transaction takes place. The block size increases, understandably, as the history of the blocks increases. Though initially the bitcoin block were handcapped at 1Mb,but there could be many transactions that could be made on a coin,so it was far less.Bitcoin has increased its cap per-block,but this leads to another problem and that is with the increase of blocksize,the processing speed for any transaction will also increase.So whats the solution for all this?
Hardfork is done to make all the changes acceptable in any block chain ,making the previous invalid blocks valid.Most of the miners do it so that they could spin it into their own version of that blockchain and those versions are all mostly equipped with SegWit.What SegWit does is to increase the block size limit to 4Mb, resulting a single block to hold the records if more than 8k.But the problem presents itself again as the limit exceeds again.
What is your take on all of this?


 
3  Economy / Economics / LETS KICK OUT POVERTY USING BITCOIN on: October 09, 2018, 09:47:55 AM
Some people claim that Bitcoin will revolutionise the world of centralised systems and on the other side some people think that bitcoin is related to criminal activities. But what is it really about Bitcoin that has led all of us to pay attention to it? For decades we have been fighting for the alleviation of poverty but with the current financial system in order, it is a dream to make everyone feel inclusive especially the ones who have been ignored by the  current banking system for a long time. It's time to let the people know that they have this revolutionary technology in their hands that could end their search for “how to alleviate poverty”?
Bitcoin has the potential to do that. Poverty is mainly caused by these three phenomenons:
Hyper Inflation
Corruption
Financial Exclusion

-Hyper Inflation
Inflation occurs when fiat notes are floated in the market but are not backed up by value. Hence hyper inflation is when the prices increase to an uncontrollable level. Bitcoin are limited in number. When the amount of currency being floated in the market remains limited, there are least chances of inflation and almost none for hyperinflation.

-Corruption
Corruption occurs when a system lacks transparency and efficiency. Bitcoin uses a decentralized peer-to-peer transaction system where every transaction is recorded in the system and no transaction can be made without being verified by the mediator (miners). Blockchain consists of an ongoing chain of blocks that act as ledgers for every transaction. These blocks are there for ever. The records can never be deleted or tempered. This process ensures transparency and enhances reliability.

-Financial Exclusion
Financial institutes, specifically banks,  at present provide a lot of useful services but with high interest rates. These services then become meaningless or unattainable for the middle class people and impossible to avail for the poorer. Hence the poor are never able to attain any of the banking or financial services due to high rates of interest. Bitcoin has a solution to this as well. Bitcoin do not require you to pay any high interests or transaction fees to avail financial services. You simply join in and have a software wallet (or any other as there a number of different wallets to keep your money). You just need to pay a very little fee on transactions otherwise no charges. Hence poor people are not excluded from the system.

The best part of bitcoin is that it doesn't stop anyone from utilizing it,  like internet or a radio. It has no limitations to its implementation.
4  Other / Beginners & Help / C++ For bitcoin and its benefits! on: October 05, 2018, 08:26:03 AM
-Blockchain programming in C++ lets you to perform effective management of resources.
- It allows better control over the memory.This is very much needed as most blockchain applications interoperate between untrusted endpoints.
-C++ does not only have effective  inter thread communication,but it also facilitates the performance of single thread.Most of the parts of Blockchain application parallelize perfectly,but some parts don’t.C++ helps Blockchain applications in this area..
-It builds applications that synchronizes between different end points and also let them interact as quickly as possible.
-C++  allows complete and consistent control of behaviour to the applications.Objects behave not only like values but as references tools that is allowed by move semantics.
-C++ has design patterns like RAII that makes code easier to maintain.Using Template Meta Programming,independence between API and the implementation can be kept.
That is why Bitcoin was written in C++.

So I was going through so many posts here blaming bitcointalk for not being welcoming of other coins . But lets just be real, this forum is "bitcointalk" and yet it still allows discussions about other things that are not bitcoin. In my eyes, those complaining should reflect on their thinking.Also the rules are just allowing it to be better and better. No more shitty posts, and a person scrolling through actually gets some answers he is looking for. Much organized,much neat!

    Hello, guys. We have some exciting news we’d like to share with you all.

    We know you are very excited about the development of Project DELTA since many of you have reached out to us personally to inquire more. For that reason, we want to share with you the secret we have been working on for months now. Project DELTA is happy to announce we will be launching our own Blockchain Protocol. We have updated our Website and Whitepaper accordingly, so we invite you to give it a read and ask as many questions as you like! Here's a brief description of the changes we've been working on:
     



    What is Project DELTA?


    In recent years, the blockchain technology has been on the spotlight as an enabler for secure and rapid transactions of data, a crucial capability for organizational competence. However, the existing blockchain protocols have shown their limitations in managing vast amounts of data in short periods of time. This is where Project DELTA comes in to change the game. Our groundbreaking protocol will resolve scalability and low-speed transaction issues found in current blockchain protocols. The Project DELTA’s blockchain protocol has been designed to break the conventional framework of blockchain protocol and overcome the limitations through its new structure and technologies to lead the Fourth Industrial Revolution. On top of that, we will develop the DELTA Knowledge Hub, the first DAPP to be built on our protocol. It is a Q&A service platform where users provide and receive concise and focalized answers through DEIRO. Thanks to peer-to-peer information and collective expertise embedded into DEIRO, the risk of biased information is highly reduced, and users can receive more objective information.


    Problems Project DELTA solves

    Coin-based compensation for mining efforts: The current blockchain protocols are unable to manage the amounts of data generated at an unprecedented scale due to the waiting time for nodes to receive the coin reward.
    Limited Data Processing Capability: By 2025 big data is expected to increase to 163ZB worldwide, which is 10 times the total amount of data generated in 2016.
    Rigid DAPP Ecosystem: Limitations in the existing blockchain protocols ultimately hamper the creation of an active DAPP ecosystem.

    The Solutions we Offer:

    VOTA (Verification Of Transcendence Spatial Autocorrelation: VOTA significantly reduces block time and achieves real-time transactions by applying a unique algorithm and eliminating coin-based compensations.
    DAPP as a Node (DAAN): Being itself a node, DAPP is incentivized by business-driven benefits instead of coin compensations to confirm transactions and generate blocks.
    CRDE (Cross-Referal DAPP Ecosystem: DELTA allows anybody to create DAPPS by using the widgets (essential DAPPS provided by Project DELTA). Cross-reference between DAPPS allows a dynamic DAPP ecosystem.

    9  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Bitcoin and C++ on: September 26, 2018, 09:53:42 AM
    I came across that the Bitcoin's core programming language was written in C++. My question is why?
    10  Other / Beginners & Help / What is mining? My understanding! on: September 25, 2018, 10:51:07 AM
    When I entered in the world of Bitcoin, the most difficult term I faced was mining. As far as I understood, it is basically a process through which blocks (that contains information about transactions) are verified. For that miners has to perform simple calculations Nodes (Computers) does that for miners. The one who performs it the first gets the reward .Thats how all the blocks got mined!
    Correct me if I am wrong! And add for my further help

    With the explosion of different cryptocurrencies, many investors are trying to catch the wave. It seems all exciting, but it is extremely difficult for a layman to understand the basic difference between all the cryptocurrencies and different blockchain protocols. The probable effects of the blockchain cannot be understated, and this might lead to a financial revolution.  2018 has been a big year for all the blockchain's popularity, and how far they have come . First let us take the overview of each of above mentioned blockchain technologies.

    BITCOIN:
     Bitcoin might be considered as the “father” or the "king" of all the cryptocurrencies. The first cryptocurrency is digital cash that only exists electronically. Peer-to-peer network architecture is the backbone of this cryptocurrency. A public ledger keeps track of all the records of the transactions being made. Blocks can be added once the transaction proceeds. The important thing to note here is that blockchain is maintained by a distributed network of miners. Miners not only record the transactions but verify them too. This is also how they provide security, notably one of the Bitcoin’s biggest features.

    EOS:
    The term “EOS” is used interchangeably for both EOS blockchain platform and its native EOS coin. EOS provides the provide ecosystem, one of a kind ecosystem where developers can not only build but develop their own Dapps. The main purpose for the platform is to provide developers with tools and network to build commercial Dapps, just like IOS is used to build mobile applications. The platform itself is built to process one million transactions. apps. The network itself uses a proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus mechanism.E0S’s developers usually implement parallel execution and asynchronous communication. They claim that one day it will able to support thousands of commercial Dapps. To build an app using the EOS platform, one must use EOS coins.

    ETHEREUM:
    Blockchain technology is used to do much more than just developing  a cryptocurrency and such applications are usually called the 2.0 versions. For example, Crypto 2.0, Blockchain 2.0, or Bitcoin 2.0.
    Ethereum was launched in 2015. It is a well-established, open-ended software platform that is used to build Smart Contracts as well as Distributed Applications (Dapps). It allows them to be built and run without any interruption, control or meddling from third parties. Ethereum is not only a platform but a programming language running on blockchain. It helps developers build and publish distributed applications.
    and now there's a new protocol on which different coins are being build.

    MIMBLEWIMBLE
    1)Privacy is ensured with the help of Confidential Transaction. Confidential Transactions work on two main properties, hiding and biding. Hiding is ensured by encapsulating the information until the key is revealed to the user receiving the transaction. Once the key is revealed, user can verify the transaction.
    2) Scalability is ensured with the help of Transaction Cut-Through. It is basically merging all the transitional outputs inside the block as it consists of a list of transactions containing all inputs and outputs. This could also be applied to the multiple blocks in the blockchain. For example, if protocol A sends the transaction to protocol B, and protocol B sends the protocol to protocol C, then we can "cut through" the intermediary transaction that results into merged transaction between A and C thus reducing computational overload.

    With the explosion of different cryptocurrencies, many investors are trying to catch the wave. It seems all exciting, but it is extremely difficult for a layman to understand the basic difference between all the cryptocurrencies and different blockchain protocols. The probable effects of the blockchain cannot be understated, and this might lead to a financial revolution.  2018 has been a big year for all the blockchain's popularity, and how far they have come . First let us take the overview of each of above mentioned blockchain technologies.

    BITCOIN:
     Bitcoin might be considered as the “father” or the "king" of all the cryptocurrencies. The first cryptocurrency is digital cash that only exists electronically. Peer-to-peer network architecture is the backbone of this cryptocurrency. A public ledger keeps track of all the records of the transactions being made. Blocks can be added once the transaction proceeds. The important thing to note here is that blockchain is maintained by a distributed network of miners. Miners not only record the transactions but verify them too. This is also how they provide security, notably one of the Bitcoin’s biggest features.

    EOS:
    The term “EOS” is used interchangeably for both EOS blockchain platform and its native EOS coin. EOS provides the provide ecosystem, one of a kind ecosystem where developers can not only build but develop their own Dapps. The main purpose for the platform is to provide developers with tools and network to build commercial Dapps, just like IOS is used to build mobile applications. The platform itself is built to process one million transactions. apps. The network itself uses a proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus mechanism.E0S’s developers usually implement parallel execution and asynchronous communication. They claim that one day it will able to support thousands of commercial Dapps. To build an app using the EOS platform, one must use EOS coins.

    ETHEREUM:
    Blockchain technology is used to do much more than just developing  a cryptocurrency and such applications are usually called the 2.0 versions. For example, Crypto 2.0, Blockchain 2.0, or Bitcoin 2.0.
    Ethereum was launched in 2015. It is a well-established, open-ended software platform that is used to build Smart Contracts as well as Distributed Applications (Dapps). It allows them to be built and run without any interruption, control or meddling from third parties. Ethereum is not only a platform but a programming language running on blockchain. It helps developers build and publish distributed applications.
    and now there's a new protocol on which different coins are being build.

    MIMBLEWIMBLE
    1)Privacy is ensured with the help of Confidential Transaction. Confidential Transactions work on two main properties, hiding and biding. Hiding is ensured by encapsulating the information until the key is revealed to the user receiving the transaction. Once the key is revealed, user can verify the transaction.
    2) Scalability is ensured with the help of Transaction Cut-Through. It is basically merging all the transitional outputs inside the block as it consists of a list of transactions containing all inputs and outputs. This could also be applied to the multiple blocks in the blockchain. For example, if protocol A sends the transaction to protocol B, and protocol B sends the protocol to protocol C, then we can "cut through" the intermediary transaction that results into merged transaction between A and C thus reducing computational overload.

    In my personal view, Bitcoin is and will stay more relevant ,since it has first mover advantage.Also ,let me know what is the best forum to post such stuff.

    16  Other / Beginners & Help / How to know if an ICO is a scam? :A beginner's guide on: September 17, 2018, 09:36:33 AM
    We all have been searching the ICOs where we can invest.These are my warning signs that you should read before you invest because we all know that 80 percent of the ICOS are scams.Though having said that,we shouldn't consider every ICO as Scam.So lets begin
    1) If all of the employees in the linkedin accounts of the company are gorgeous girls,it probably is a scam.Duh.Not every company has Scarlett Johanson look alikes as their employees.
    2) If any big government official name is linked. Though ,the government officials might be investing or are linked to the projects "secretly",they wouldn't risk to reveal their names.
    3) Avoid projects with poetic whitepapers. The real projects get to the point .Simple as that.
    4)The whitepaper will seem somehow "original". It will not have borrowed words.
    5) Search for the employees. They should be real people rather than same person wearing different clothes.Or  images of the profile are just searched through google.
    6)Too fancy website. The website and company seems too professional but the important details such as the dates of the ICOs keep changing.
