1  Economy / Service Discussion / What services are Bitcoin in need of? on: November 06, 2019, 08:23:02 PM
Bitcoin has progressed into a thriving currency and has touched almost every industry in some way or another but what services would you like to see accepting Bitcoin? This thread has two reasons for being made first to see what services the Bitcoin users are looking for but also to expose certain services which already exist but the majority of people are not aware of.
2  Economy / Reputation / Should selling/buying .edu emails be considerd fraud? on: May 20, 2018, 11:41:26 AM
You've all seen the members selling .edu emails to get various different discounts from online stores. Namely Amazon Prime but registering a edu email normally requires you to be in a university although these people are selling hundreds of .edu emails which suggests they are doing the more blackhat ways which requires you lying that you are in full time education or using an existing students name in higher education.

I don''t think this is something which should be encouraged and probably should be disallowed per the forum rules because fraud is illegal in every country. What do you guys think?
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Crypto's 1st official decentralized voting poll - How Bitcoin should decide! on: April 01, 2017, 05:39:10 PM
Yet another amazing milestone for the most advanced cryptocurrency wallet on the planet.

Bitbay have announced the first decentralized Voting Poll to decide whether to fork to correct the BAY Staking reward as soon as possible or wait for the next scheduled fork.

If you would like to participate in this historic event, you still have time to download and install the Client. All Clients must be 100% synchronized. In order to Stake/Vote you must be holding coins in the Client. Say goodbye to political centralized gridlock! This is the first official voting poll for the BitBay community. There will be many more to come as the coin continues to place itself above the competition as the most advanced cryptocurrency wallet in existence.

As some may already know, when David upgraded the BitBay Staking protocol from POS 2.0 to POS 3.0, he made the innocent mistake of adjusting the coin’s interest rate return to the incorrect amount. After this small glitch was found, David came to conclusion he would simply correct the Staking reward when BitBay is scheduled to fork for the implementation of the Rolling Peg technology, scheduled later this year. With the recent rise in price and substantial boost in community interest, more and more people are voicing their desire to fix this glitch now rather than wait.

To be fair to all and remain true to a decentralized protocol, BitBay will host an official Voting Poll starting Saturday, 04/01/2017 at 7:00 AM UTC and ending on Tuesday, 04/04/2017 at 7:00 AM UTC. Only votes submitted on blocks in that timeframe will be counted. Anyone with coins can vote, as long as they have the Client installed and synchronized; the more coins you have stored on your Client the stronger your voting power becomes as all votes attach themselves to staked block rewards. Within the Client simply go to:

Settings (tab) -> General Settings (dropdown menu) -> Mining/Staking and Voting (tab)

In this window click on Add Vote button and enter:
 1.stakefork (for the stake reward to be adjusted as a priority)
 2.nostakefork (to wait until the rolling peg fork to adjust reward)

Please note: use all lower case letters. Votes are case sensitive.



The Client will then ask you how many times you wish to vote. All votes cost 0.000005554 BAY. Enter the desired amount of votes to cast and you are complete. Remember your Client must be staking in order to cast votes. Votes do not immediately tally into the system. Once you’ve cast your total votes you wish to add, these votes will attach themselves to any future blocks you find while your Client stakes. You must keep you Client open and staking in order for it to continue to add votes to your choice. You will be able to count the votes applied to each option by clicking on the Count Vote option in that same window. Make a mental note of which block starts and ends in that timeframe of the vote to see the most accurate count, or you can use the blockchain explorer to track everyone’s votes, as all votes are transferred to a burn address on the blockchain.

Download the Client at http://BitBay.Market/downloads/ now and prepare to vote!

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is Cold Staking a 'must have feature' moving forward for all PoS? on: March 10, 2017, 01:32:55 PM
With Bitbay's announcement that they have will be implementing Cold Staking in the coming days I was wondering which coins use it, and if you think its a 'must' have feature moving forward for all PoS?

Im aware of one other which is Decred.

Just to familiarise yourselves with the term 'Cold Staking' - It gives you the ability to put two keys on separate computers.  To break into your wallet the hacker would need to access both computers and break both keys.



6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Bitbay Announce First Decentralized Market Release (out of Beta) on: March 28, 2016, 09:04:16 PM
Just seen this over at Bitbay;

-------------------------------

First Decentralised Market Release - APRIL 2016
Date:28th March 2016

April 2016 will see the official release of our first client. A faster and better version which will form the platform for all future templates and updates.

In addition to major enhancements the release will also fix all issues that have been reported by the users. The windows version is currently being tested by our core team.

Also, we have recently been in contact with Microsoft Azure and their requirements to join would delay the final release of the Bitbay client. We would rather complete the client and focus on its integration into other services. A more detailed post has already been made by David on Slack.
