1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / why airdrop at once, how about a paycheck.. using POS. Slow drops better. on: April 26, 2014, 04:10:54 AM
one of the many problems facing these airdrop coins, is the drop itself.

1. it encourages a massive price drop and dumping... on date of drop. And this massively hurts supporters and savers.

2. most people arent even going to bother. leaving un dropped coins and multi drops and well ruins the idea. (i bolded this, because people dont seem to realize we are still a super small minority.. even in BTC.. only a tiny fraction of pops are likely to get those coins.. heck the one being dumped on this forum will probably only have a tiny fraction of the forum users.. and we are all into this shit)

3. if you have enough coin to make fiat with.. but cant use it anywhere else.. you are going to get fiat with it.

Now how about fuck the massive drop. Have a pow/pos currency You might need separate wallets for the country in question but...which would be doable with iceland and their citizen codes.

But you give everyone a wallet, with hardly anything in it. For ease of convo.. 1 coin. worth.. worth $1 or less in fiat. But grows weekly until after a year, you get the size of the promised drop in a POS system.

This doesnt encourage dumping, because its a pain and you dont get enough and the fees to convert that to fiat.. means its crap.

However people like watching things grow. I turned 0.3 cents into 5 dollars in stupid ponzi games.. its not a brag, cause the time i spent, was not worth the money, but it is fun to watch the numbers get bigger.

and if the price holds after a month you got nearly $5.. suddenly it seems more interesting..

This gives time for word of mouth advertising.. and the media as it grows

you dont really have to worry as much that their isnt places to spend it right away.. because no one has enough to spend yet.

you dont have to worry if the entire country doesnt get their wallet in the first week. yeah some will earn less.. that fact actually will help growth, as word of mouth spreads and people are loss adverse.. they will want their wallet.

This allows for a more reasonable and likely growth pattern without buttfucking the coin and supporters with a massive dump date. (i'm not sure if you want to POS everyone with a wallet the same.. I mean if you are doing a country coin. maybe let everyone get a special pos coin using their ID.. w/e thats not my focus. there are other issues.. I'm just concerned with the massive dump.. and saying it would better if people got a paycheck, rather than a payday.)

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Open letter to multipools and coins that trade for 0.00000001, DONT SWITCH. on: March 06, 2014, 04:49:54 PM
it seems kinda retarded to constantly switch to dying coins simply because some asshole bought a fraction of one for 0.00000002.

when there are 30btc on 0.00000002 and 12 on 0.00000001.. you arent going to sell your coin ever for 0.00000002.

SO YEAH PROFITABILITY APPEARS TO DOUBLE WHEN DUDE WITH 30 BTC SELLS A FRACTION OF ONE COIN, but it is an illusion. When you get coin to exchange you are going to sell it for half as much because no one wants to wait a  year behind 30 btc ahead of them to sell their 1000 shit coins for the price the pool said they were when mining.

yeah.. this is an issue for every coin somewhat.. prices often dropping and by the time they hit the exchange they are less profitable than when mined.. BUT IT IS INSANE WHEN YOU GET TO 0.00000001.. because a single sale doubles the profitability.


5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / anywhere list the coins by total hashes? on: February 27, 2014, 02:57:49 AM
yeah you can sorta tell by difficulty but some of the different types of difficulty algos dont change the diff as fast as teh hashes do.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / why do absolutely none of the alt chain block explorers have confirmations? on: February 17, 2014, 03:15:01 AM
none of the block explorers are people friendly, not even the BTC, but the BTC one is decent enough.
But why do the others suck so fucking badly?
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / instead of "newly launched" can you put the data in the top when releasing coin on: February 05, 2014, 04:40:05 PM
its just easier than clicking all these newly launched coins and looking at the date of the first post and seeing it was july of last year.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The total number of coins is meaningless on: January 26, 2014, 03:56:00 PM
I see 21 coin and 42 coin and 84 coin and coins with trillions of coins and laugh. it is all meaningless. The only rare coin is one that no one mines.

42 has just as many coins as any other coin. They just dont name them. It is liek a society with nothing but 10,000 dollar bills but people still get paid less and infractions.
Just cause they didnt call a penny a penny doesnt mean it doesnt exit.

I have 0.00000077 42coin left cause cryppy wont let me sell that little.. people arent used to that number.. they dont say it often in every day life.

but you can move the decimal anywhere as long as you do it across the board
you can say I have 77  of a new coin I just decided to call 42million coin.

I dont even have to write any code.. it is the same thing.

hey if we took every penny, in america and put an extra zero on it.. so pennies are 10 cents, quarters are 250, but of course a big mac costs $50 now.. elec is 2000 dollars and shit but nothing has changed.

we all still have the same value of wealth.

Just saying, dont get hung up on these "super rare" coins and crap.,... its meaningless you can put a rapper around any group of bits and call it a coin... it doesnt change how much you get per hash per watt digging in intrinsic value.

hey you could mod the bitcoin system to cut it in half. every bitcoin is now 0.5 bitcoin, even the ones left to mine. suddenly the price is $2000  and the "number of bitcoins" has  been halfed.. but nothing has changed really.. if you had one btc worth a grand  before the change, you now have 0.5 btc worth a grand. You might get less "bits" in your wallet as you mine, but you get the same value. WE just arbitrarily changes what we call a coin.. but nothing really has changed.. you can do that until bitcoin is as sill as 42. Just divide the entire shebang by a million.

The concept "coin" is just a wrapper, so that we can easily put shit in our head. But we can put that wrapper anywhere.

coins like 42, 21, and 84 just decided to not give us names for pennies. PERIOD. They still have pennies.. or a "concept of a pennie' just no name for it. its a society with nothing but 10,000 dollar bills, but you can still get some gum for 0.0001 tenthousand dollar bills.... just no one bothered inventing the dollar.

Money is imaginary, dont get too caught up into the idea that it is real.... the rare coins are nothing more than annoying all they did was name the lower denominations fractional names that the common person rarely uses. But they still have as many coins as any other.. they just dont name them.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / mining solo 5th card never connects on: January 24, 2014, 07:24:33 AM
When ever I try to mine alt coins

the first 4 cards I start will connect solo.. the 4th i will get a pool not responding fast enough or credentials error.

They mine fine in a pool.

anything I can do to help get full potential?

Right now my only extra flags is --lookup-gap 2

only one user in conf

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / WTF is going on with crypsy on: January 20, 2014, 07:06:03 PM
Yeah i get doge are taking a while but over 30 hours.. it is getting a bit redic.

The doge exchange was busted most of yesterday.

and it isnt just doge.. I have had 3 deposits not show up.

and yes I get delays.. buit i had deposits of the same coin that i sent much later, actually show up.

since the maintenance, it is pretty bad there right now.

Love the site, handy.. when working, but right now I am scared to send coins..
cant do shit automatic.. cause now I have to watch every penny.

I guess they are slammed with support tickets, but not a word for hours about mine.

where is a good alternative until they get this shit worked out.. cause this sucks.

Huh Angry Huh

I dont care if he is 17.. Good job man.

13  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / cat 12.2 preview is out on: January 26, 2012, 02:33:08 PM
havent tried.. but here ya go
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Someone sent me the rest of their coins the other day and never got them on: January 23, 2012, 04:14:23 PM
Friend using an old client decided to empty his wallet and give it to me.. it isnt much as you can see, but it never came to me and I would like to find out why.

I have received other money before then. I have not tried this addy before directly. but it is in my wallet.

I dont know much about how to use block explorer that well but searching it gives me a transaction for that addy for today but the amount doesnt match(close but fees dont quite explain it) and he sent it yesterday.

any ideas? was it simply due to the old client?
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Mooncoin taken over by the feds? on: September 15, 2011, 08:26:26 PM
Someone suggested I post this here.

If you got to right now you get an invalid cert error, if you look at the cert it says it is owned by

If you whois he IP of his site, it says it is owned by

immigration and customs enforcement, is responsible for closing down a bunch of gambling domains and domains that sell counterfeit goods.

Right now mr_moon is MIA, and his reddit account is deleted(not sure why but figure it is info that belongs here)

his Gmail addy no longer works.

but most of the time when they seize a site you get an federal warning on the site, explaining it was seized.

Last and probably of little note, bitcoinexpress said he was going to report to icann for lying on the whois.

which you can imagine how i would feel about that.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / taken over by immigration and customs? on: September 15, 2011, 07:05:10 PM
if you try to go to right now, you get an invalid server cert warning. Look at the cert it has. belongs to
immigration and customs enforcement.

and incase you missed it, ICE also handles things like off shore poker as well as copyrightinfringement.
17  Other / Meta / Should the Community ban people Like btcexpress, when they screw over everyone? on: September 15, 2011, 02:21:43 PM
 This place is sure going to shit with people like douchebagexpress fucking all the exchanges, fucking all the coins, WHAT THE FUCK DID NAMECOIN EVER DO TO ANYONE?
yeah now he calls it a test, after saying he is developing a "LETHAL ALT CHAIN KILLER"

Why does the community let someone stay who got dozens of pools closed down.
WHo got all the exchanges closed down.
WHo got 4 alternative currencies closed down.
and IS a basic loser in general.

DOUCHEBAGEXPRESS will claim I am only pissed cause I cant trade my pathetic 300 solidcoins.. that I WAS SITTING ON. Yeah that is what I am pissed off about. Not him fucking over doubleC, not him fucking the entire community.  Not him fucking dozens of poll owners. Not him fucking with all the chains. WHat he is doing to namecoin is plain wrong and it isnt a test of shit. Namecoin is updating their software soon. Solidcoin his real target is updating now. SO WHY IS HE GOING TO FUCK NAMECOIN? EGO.

THis place has enough trolls and scammers, it doesnt need a mega douche like douchebag express. AND WHEN THE FORUMS ALLOW HIM TO ACT WITH IMPUNITY, IT GIVES A BAD DOUCHEY TASTE IN THE MOUTH OF ANY BUSINESS OWNER, INTERESTED IN BITCOIN.

Look at it this way. THERE IS A TESTNET FOR A FUCKING REASON. AS a business owner, THIS GIVES ME PIECE OF MIND, but then I come here and see that a Guy is attacking the live chains, of other coins, and the forum not doing shit. WHY THE FUCK WOULD I TAKE BTC WHEN IT MIGHT GET LIVE ATTACKS LAUNCHED FROM THESE FORUMS, AND NO ONE DO SHIT? I WOULDNT.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / DO you think doubleC should open an exchange for geistgeld w/ the btcexpress sit on: September 14, 2011, 01:43:31 PM
 I think You can guess my answer and sorry to Lolcust but the guy who is terrorizing the other chains, is a founding miner on geist geld. Seems like it would just encourage more of this behavior and would be unfair to those who are locked out of their investments, possibly going to lose their investments, for doubleC to open a geist geld exchange that would benefit bitcoin express, while everyone else has to wait for fixes due to bitcoinexpress.   The guy has caused a ton of pool ops headaches, a ton of miners headaches, a ton of investers headaches and doubleC some headaches(ok maybe for doubleC some reduction of headaches, but I bet he is getting a shit ton of emails and pms) why encourage more of this by having him profit so soon after disrupting the entire community?

I could be in the minority here, Geist geld does not have anything officially to do with bitcoin express, bitcoin express probably has other coins as well.  Maybe you dont care. So vote. just note that if you vote yes, you will be helping someone who had mined geist gelds at 0 hour and as such is a major holder of the coins, someone who probably screwed up your investments and time.
19  Other / Meta / Isnt it more than past time we cleaned house? on: September 13, 2011, 05:23:51 PM
  Seriously this place is starting to resemble a bit steaming pile of crap. WE have this newbie section that doesnt seem to do anything but annoy people cause when you let them out of the newbie section you let the trolls and hackers run wild. Should we really let these scumbags on the forums where prospective business owners will come and see when they are interested in bitcoin? When we do nothing to protect the networks here, when we do nothing to clean house, doesnt it make this place stink like a pile of crap?

Yeah I'm not totally innocent, well except I havent promised to hack any networks, destroying people investments rather than hacking the testnets which is THERE FOR THAT PURPOSE.

Seriously this place is becoming more troll and less debate every day. Some people make new posts every day saying the same things over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again(yeah that was an annoying amount of overs) how do you think this place would look to someone outside of the community, who is interested in making all our investments worth more?

If I was the ceo of newegg and thinking about taking bitcoin, I sure as hell wouldnt take them after visiting this forum, seeing how we let trolls and hackers operate with impunity.

Isnt it about time to clean house on bitcoin talk?
Isnt this place doing more harm than good by letting trolls and hackers reign?
Isnt this crap getting old on anyone else?

I say it frequently, this isnt a game, we are all hear to make money, lets quit treating it like a game. WE may use video cards to mine with, but this isnt wow gold. This is something we are trying to make into a viable currency.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Send to IP, why hasnt anyone taken advantage of this yet? on: September 06, 2011, 06:02:59 PM
read up here..

Ok in it;s current form it is prone to exploit and not really that handy. and yeah freicoin(sp?) is doing something like it, but it really should be in the client.

What I would like to see, what a lot of people would like to see, is the ability to take advantage of easy to remember names, like provided by DNS, in sending transactions.

I dont want to tell my bud on the streets, yeah when you get home(he doesnt have a smart phone) send me coins at 1-C-o-w-J-8-L-R-3-o-b-Y-X-Z-r-3-x-U-M-B-4-b-F-s-q-g-x-D-c-1-M-n-S-B   ok you wrote all that down and make sure you get the cases right.

I'd rather say, send me 10btc to and I am quite sure stores would rather say, send coins to and not some long convoluted addy that no one will ever remember.

yeah smart phones help a little but i want a DNS addy associated with my wallets.

Yeah i could post this in the btc development area but they seem as open to ideas as solidcoin. SO I am begging the alternate coin creators.. make me something more user friendly, something grandma friendly.
