1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / iBITS is a direct clone of Diggits, WARNING, dev is deleting POSTS on: July 30, 2015, 12:42:01 PM
FTR. Could have been just ineptitude but deleting the post suggests something to hide.

Does not reflect well on Yobit and Bittrex, apparently they will happily list any old rubbish.

A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by the starter of a self-moderated topic. There are no rules of self-moderation, so this deletion cannot be appealed. Do not continue posting in this topic if the topic-starter has requested that you leave.

You can create a new topic if you are unsatisfied with this one. If the topic-starter is scamming, post about it in Scam Accusations.

This is a cynical and exploitative minimalist reworking of Diggits. The greedy little scrote behind this casual con doesn't even bother to make an effort, it's apparently so easy to reel in the punters.

Apologies to those who have already gambled and lost on this play, all I can suggest is that you deepen your research next time.

The con is revealed by a a misplaced source code file containing a unique marker, an edit failure made by the RubyCoin dev in omitting to correct a reference to ReddCoin:

case mBTC: return QString("mRDD");

The error has been preserved in blissful ignorance by a couple of clueless devs, allowing it to stand as mute evidence of a slapdash copynpasta effort giving the lie to any promises made in the ANN and, basically, giving the game away entirely.

Here's the github search string that reveals the half-dozen instances where the line of code appears:
https://github.com/search?q=case+mBTC%3A+return+QString%28%22mRDD%22%29%3B&type=Code

And here's the detailed evidence...

iBITS
https://github.com/ibitsteam/ibits-src/blob/master/src/bitcoinunits.cpp#L42
Code:
QString BitcoinUnits::name(int unit)
{
    switch(unit)
    {
    case BTC: return QString("iBIT");
    case mBTC: return QString("mRDD");                         <- CLANG! CLANG! CLANG!
    case uBTC: return QString::fromUtf8("μiBIT");
    default: return QString("???");
    }
}

Diggits
https://github.com/DiggitsSquad/Diggits-Src/blob/master/src/bitcoinunits.cpp#L42
Code:
QString BitcoinUnits::name(int unit)
{
    switch(unit)
    {
    case BTC: return QString("DIGS");
    case mBTC: return QString("mRDD");                         <- CLANG! CLANG! CLANG!
    case uBTC: return QString::fromUtf8("μDIGS");
    default: return QString("???");
    }
}

It makes a compelling argument to view the iBITS dev and the Diggits dev as one and the same person.

I am sorry for your loss.

Cheers

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / RedMarsWind likely scam on: February 23, 2015, 12:47:10 PM
Morning all,

The ANN for RedMarsWind coin coin (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=963978.0) is likely a scam, attempting to lure people into confusing it with extant RedWind coin (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=904485.0) in that the pretender, RedMarsWind, uses the same OP layout, same image, same algo, same params.


Exhibit A. 23 Sept 2014 by Red_Wind Ist ANN for launch of RedWind:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=791563.0


Exhibit B. 5 Dec 2014 by Red_Wind advice of withdrawal and later relaunch of RedWind:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=883653.0


Exhibit C. 25 Dec 2014 by Red_Wind announcing launch of RedWind

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=904485.0


Exhibit D. 22 Feb 2015 by vandao announcing launch of RedMarsWind

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=963978.0

I posted to D, advising of existence of C.

The post was deleted without comment and I've been banned from making further posts to thread D.



For full metadata of the original RedWind, see Minkiz rendering of DOACC metadata of DOACC entry.

RedMarsWind coin has been flagged as spam by RedWind subscribers to C.

Sorry for contaminating Announcements with this but vandao's determination to persist with this misrepresentation is a concern.

Cheers

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Heads up: change of terminology, “ICO” becomes “CFC” on: November 13, 2014, 03:50:50 PM
Bittrex' lawyers lead the way:

https://bittrex.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203386364-GlowShare-Crowdfund-Campaign

“GlowShare Crowdfund Campaign

“ ... cancel a CFC at any time ...“


As the man wrote: “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” --- and, in this instance, has the benefit of being less likely to frighten the legislative horses.

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Number of altcoin launches per month drops back to Dec 2013 level on: October 03, 2014, 01:25:13 AM

The frenzy has diminished, as illustrated by this chart of number of altcoin launches per month since Jan 2013:



(Data from DOACC https://github.com/DOACC)

Thought there might be some broad interest.

Cheers

Graham
