3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / NuShare holders recieve their first dividend payment, $50,000 worth in PPC on: November 21, 2014, 03:45:23 AM
11.20.14

NuShare holders got their first dividend payment today. 68,306 PPC (Peercoins) were bought off the open market in the last two days, and distributed to shareholders. If you held NuShares for at least 36 hours before it went out, you have either received your dividend or can receive it by following this guide.

- Overview of KTm's proposal


The Nu network launched on September 23rd, 2014. NuShares are currently traded at Bter and CCEDK exchanges. More information can be found at NuBits.com

Depending on the response to this thread, I planned to update it as more dividends go out.

Happy trading!

4. Conclusion:


1. Core Development:

- Sigmike Joins Sunny King on the Peercoin Core Development Team

On 6/16/14, Sunny King officially announced that Sigmike is now sharing responsibility in the Peercoin core development team.

Quote
Based on the consensus of project leaders of the community, I am happy to announce that sigmike is now sharing responsibility with me in the Peercoin core-dev team. Responsibility of core-dev team is maintenance and development of peercoin protocol and reference client implementation. sigmike has been a key member of the peershare project and peerunity project, who has also demonstrated exceptional knowledge of peercoin protocol and security.

Sigmike has proven to be an invaluable asset to the Peercoin community with such works as Peershares, Peerunity, Peer4commit, and NuBits (which we'll get to in a moment). Congratulations Sigmike!

- Peercoin v0.5: Checkpoint Opt Out, Cold-Locked Minting, Improved Rewards

On 6/24/14, Sunny King confirmed that Peercoin v0.5 is under development. He mentions enabling users to opt out of checkpoint enforcement.

Quote
Peercoin v0.5 is under development, currently work is being done on the checkpoint system. First step, user would be able to opt out enforcement of broadcast checkpoints.

In the 5/24/14 community interview with Sunny King, he mentioned improved network security and minting incentive as two things currently in development.

Quote
Sunny King: For the protocol there is two items currently active, one is cold minting, the other is improving minting incentive

Ben: "Improving minting incentive" -- this will be an item that will get a lot of talk after this interview, I'm sure. Can you tell us about it?

Sunny King: If we get these solved I think then we could reach very high network security levels

Sunny King: Currently the minting participate rate is still relatively low I think

Sunny King: It's getting a lot better than say a year ago, but I think we could do much better even

Sunny King: I have a proposal that maybe switch to a constant mint per block would significantly improve participation without too much impact to inflation model. However this is something the commnity needs to reach a level of consensus on



On 5/8/14, Sigmike proposed a cold storage minting option. Cold storage, or cold-locked minting, would enable users to earn interest on their Peercoins via proof of stake and secure the network while their coins are held safely in cold storage.

On 6/30/14, Sunny King made a comment which seemed to imply Sigmike's proposal was chosen and he is currently developing it.

Quote
It most likely would be a mandatory upgrade. We don't have a release schedule yet. Mike has just started to work on the cold minting feature.


- Interviews With Sunny King

2. Community Development:

- Peerunity v0.1 Released

On 6/2/14, v0.1 of the community developed Peerunity client saw release. Updates over the official client include:

New Features:
  • Peerunity branded UI (new icons and text and content labels)
  • "Unlock for Minting Only" menu item
  • "Coin Control" functionality
  • createmultisig RPC call added
  • -walletnotify command added

Image of the minting option (found under settings):



Image of coin control feature (enabled under settings -> options -> display):



Protocol Bug Fixes:
  • New stakes will be displayed after a successful block mint without having to restart the client.
  • When a proof-of-stake block was minted, the sum of the resulting balance (block reward + stake) was incorrectly being doubled when displayed through the listaccounts RPC call. This was only a display issue and did not affect the GUI or when getbalance was called.
  • In the Options dialog, the mandatory transaction fee description was updated with accurate details about how the Peercoin network fees worked. Previously, the text referred to how the Bitcoin network's fees are processed.
  • Updated compilation instructions for building on OS X (with MacPorts or Homebrew, for 10.8.x or 10.9.x)

Localization Updates:
  • French language translation updates
  • Norwegian language translation updates
  • Chinese (Simplified) language translation updates
- Peerunity v0.2 in Development

Peerunity v0.2 has been in development for a while as well. Based on community discussion, Jordan Lee has confirmed the following features should be included:

v0.2 Feature List:
  • The minting tab (pull request #77 from daeMOn)
  • A new stylesheet (no pull request yet)
  • Raw transactions RPC + batch JSON-RPC (pull request #26 from glv)
  • Add address for minted coins in transaction table (pull request #45 from glv)
  • Add support for IPv6 node and for Socks v5 proxy (pull request #49 from glv)
  • sendmany from all accounts (pull request #74 from sigmike)
  • Improve the transaction size (and fee) prediction of coin control (pull request #86 from glv)
  • A variety of translation updates and bug fixes. There are a number of these already submitted as pull requests, plus we will accept more until we are code complete.

Peercoin member Sentinelrv has been designing the new visual style and Ben is working on implementing it into the client. Here is a concept:



- New Peercoin Video Released

The animated Peercoin video project funded by the community has been completed! www.whatispeercoin.com has been setup as an easy to remember shortcut URL for easy linking when sharing the video with others. The regular YouTube address can be found here.



- Introducing the Peercoin Marketing Fund



On 6/27/14, the Peercoin Marketing Fund was introduced by Cybnate and River333. This fund will allow anyone to submit a marketing proposal for Peercoin. Each proposal will be voted on by the community. If approved, the proposal will be funded. This fund will make us more agile and faster to respond to opportunities without the need to raise money first. It will also challenge the community to be creative and come up with their own proposals, as they will know the money is available to them as long as they can convince the community to vote for it. Below you'll find a list of important links related to the fund:

Important Fund Links:
Quote
We are proud to announce the launch of the Peercoin Marketing Fund. Instead of having a foundation or a small marketing team working in private, this fund will allow marketing to be done by the community, and for the community. No hidden agendas or ulterior motives. Anyone can submit a proposal and receive funding for their idea, and all proposals will be voted on by the community before receiving funding. The funds will be stored on peer4commit and will use multisig as soon as it is available. Distributing the funds to projects will be done by volunteers who hold the role on a temporary basis, and are voted in by the community. Full details of the structure can be found in the Charter.

The fund has already received extremely generous donations, with 4000 PPC now available to start with. Donations can be sent on peer4commit. Please use the "Donate" button so you can give a return address. If you have an idea for marketing Peercoin, you are now invited to post a proposal. Please see the Template for Submissions for more information. We hope that this fund will help spread awareness and lead to greater adoption of Peercoin.

- 38 Minute Intro to Peercoin Video & Slide Deck Created

On 6/30/14, the first proposal, an intro to Peercoin video, was made by community member Chronos. It was soon approved by the community and on 7/13/15, it was successfully completed! The 38 minute video provides an excellent overview of the basics of Peercoin, proof of work vs proof of stake, and where Peercoin is headed long term in contrast to Bitcoin and other proof of work cryptocurrencies. You can watch it right here. You can also download the slide deck here and use it for Peercoin presentations. We've also setup two shortcut domains to the video you can use to spread around, bitcoinVSpeercoin.com and peercoinVSbitcoin.com.



- Peer4Commit Gets a Facelift & New Features

On 5/6/14, sigmike proposed a major evolution for Peer4Commit. Only a few weeks later a redesign and several of the features were implemented. Check it out at peer4commit.com!



- Peercoin.net is Being Redesigned

The community has hired a web developer to redesign Peercoin.net and is in the process of hiring Chronos to take the lead on content creation. Lots of new pages full of content are in the planning stages, including user type pages, explanations and guides. Certain pages will also feature instructional videos. A news blog will be incorporated into the new site as well as a way to sign up for the Peercoin newsletter, so you can receive news updates via email. Follow its progress and give feedback and suggestions in this thread.



3. The "Cryptoasset Game Changer" Introducing NuBits:



On 6/5/14, Jordan Lee revealed that the project he and his team have been working on will be called NuBits in a very bold announcement. He also confirmed that dividend payments to NuBits shareholders would be paid in Peercoins.

Quote
The Peershares implementation and extension my team has been working on will be known as the NuBits project. It provides something which the cryptocommunity has desperately wanted and needed for years. There are presently no implementations or competitors with a production system up and running to meet the need. It will be a ground breaking release. Some might even call this the most important development in the cryptoasset space since Bitcoin was released. Others will disagree, but there will be a consensus that it is an historic development in decentralized finance.

As many of you know, I have not felt comfortable selling a product that doesn't exist. This will not be an issue preventing investment or broader participation in the NuBits project much longer. Soon we expect to have our production network and client up and running, at which time we will begin to look for investors who would like to purchase our Peershares and participate in the NuBits project. Potential investors will receive extremely detailed information about the NuBits project and a client they can use to connect to the production network. This wave of investors will be people who have demonstrated a capacity to benefit cryptoasset projects such as developers, marketers, testers and active forum participants. People who purchase our Peershares will be business partners, so we want to select them carefully. Later we will sell shares to people who's primary contribution is financial. All proceeds from the sale of our Peershares will be used in the interest of shareholders, particularly for operating and development expenses. We expect the project to be very well funded and experience explosive growth.

Finally, I will confirm that we will be distributing dividends as Peercoins. We expect to need quite a few Peercoins to accomplish this.

On 6/29/14, an update:

Quote
All major features for the initial release of the NuBits project are code complete and the protocol has passed the most basic sort of unit tests. We are still adding new code that is of peripheral importance and there is a lot of QA work yet to be done. But the code is surprisingly bug free owing to the fact that sigmike is our primary developer. Our development effort is beginning to shift focus to our second release, as our QA team has the primary responsibility for bringing the first release to completion at this point.

We are wrapping up development as quickly as possible and are excited to share this cryptoasset game changer with the world soon.

Then, hints as to what NuBits could be started appearing on the official Twitter & Facebook pages.

On 7/2/14, Jordan Lee announced the website, www.NuBits.com
Quote
While an entire team of IT professionals have been working privately to bring you the NuBits project for 5 months, public NuBits activity is just now slowly but surely ramping up. The seemingly cryptic messages you are reading from the NuBits team hint at a future cryptoeconomy that will look very different from the volatile markets that exist today. Peercoin is poised to play a meaningful role in the innovative solution we are building.

The next step in building awareness is launching a splash page for NuBits at www.NuBits.com, which is available now. Many more details and tools will be released on the NuBits.com website at an appropriate time in the future. Once we have a firm release date, the random hashing values will change to a release countdown.

Something Nu is coming in 2014, and we are eager to share it with the world.

Thecoinfront.com picked up on it and wrote an article you can find here.

4. Conclusion:
  • Peercoin will be two years old on August 19th, 2014!
  • Peercoin's PoW difficulty is now at 181 million, almost triple it's January difficulty of 64 million.
  • Peercoin's PoS difficulty is hovering around 12.1, over triple what it was a year ago.
  • At the time of this writing, the Peercoin blockchain is still less than 300mb due to design!
  • Community member JetJet13 has created Peerchain.co; a Peercoin block explorer with lots of great info. The official thread for it can be found here

Peercoin Newsletter - Issue #8
April 23rd, 2014

Introduction


Thank you for joining our Peercoin newsletter. There have been several major developments for Peercoin in the past few months, so let's get to it.

PeercoinTalk thread

Peerunity


Peercoin is quickly approaching a major milestone in its life with the announcement of Peerunity. On 4/12/14, Peershares architect Jordan Lee revealed the development of this next level wallet and client supporting Peercoin and eventually Peershares. This represents a sort of melding in the Peercoin and Peershares development, meaning faster and broader updates to Peercoin development:

I am pleased to be able to announce the launch of Peerunity development, your next Peercoin wallet.

Since day one the Peershares specification has included a client (wallet) that would integrate support for Peercoin as well as multiple Peershares instances. While this versatile client has not been scheduled for the initial release of the Peershares template, the Peershares team feels it is time to begin development of this combined Peercoin/Peershares wallet. Accordingly, you can find the code project here: https://github.com/Peerunity/Peerunity

It is a fork of the ppcoin repository. The first two or three releases will not feature support of Peershares. We would like it to be an open and inclusive environment for the broader Peercoin community to improve this Peercoin client. This does not belong to the Peershares team. In recognition of Peershares' dependence on Peercoin, some development of Peerunity will be sponsored by the Peershares team. We also want to reach out to developers such as irigi, b0netruper, Curve25519, JSmith-BitFlipper, ghost, sengaya, ngbatnicdotmil, ErikDubbelboer, samilaine and especially vpereira who have placed pull requests against ppcoin and say: the Peercoin community is very thankful for your work and we want to cooperate closely with you to refine and test your contributions and get them into the hands of users in the Peercoin community quickly. We encourage all developers considering making a pull request against the ppcoin repository to also make a pull request against Peerunity.

To help faciliate broad community cooperation, a number of trusted Peercoin/Peershares community leaders have write permissions to the repository, meaning they can integrate the code changes into the master copy of the code. These members are Sunny King, Ben, sigmike and myself.

I have said in the past that Peercoin development will be provided and funded by our Peershares team in the future. Today that future arrives. The Peershares project will be funding user interface based minting (aka one button minting) and will also provide Peercoin branding (updating PPCoin branding) for the client in our first Peerunity release. We will also include most of the pull requests currently pending against the ppcoin repository. We want to lock down the code for testing very quickly (in a week or two) and then release very quickly after that, so if you have something you would like to contribute to the first release, please speak up quickly and we will consider your request. One button minting is already in Peerunity (thanks to sigmike and funding from Peershares) and we will be merging ppcoin pull requests in the coming days. Initially we will place changes in master. As the cutoff for feature inclusion arrives, we will branch into 0.5, stabilize the branch through testing for release and simultaneously continue adding additional improvements to master.

The days of slow or nonexistent Peercoin development are over.


The specifications of the first Peerunity release have been finalized.

Quote
The specifications accepted for the 0.1 release are:

1. Rebranding: Accepted and funded by Peershares (no pull request yet)
2. Menu based minting: Accepted and funded by Peershares (pull request by sigmike merged)
3. Coin control: Accepted and funded by Peer4Commit donation @ 130 PPC (pull request submitted by glv2)
4. createmultisig RPC: Accepted (pull request submitted by Jordan Lee)

The createmultisig RPC I just submitted has absolutely zero testing. If someone will test it and resubmit the pull request with two indentation anomalies fixed and any fixes your testing may indicate are needed I will merge your pull request instead of mine and give you a 5% tip [edit: about 60 PPC].

In addition to the above items our first release includes a half dozen pull requests brought in from PPCoin and an updated French translation.

All that remains is the easiest task, rebranding. This will be provided by the Peershares team very soon. I believe Sentinelrv is going to provide icons for the rebranding which are still outstanding. Except for this simple and straightforward item, all that remains to be done is testing. We are very close to being code complete.



"Peershares are a way for businesses to raise funds by issuing shares to the public and managing them in a decentralized fashion. It uses the Peercoin network to automate the distribution of associated dividends in the form of Peercoins."

On 3/22/14, Jordan Lee gave an update on the development of Peershares. Note that this update came before the announcement of Peerunity, but it does provide insight into the ongoing development of Peershares.

Though winter has arrived in Bitcoin land and Peercoin land, it is spring in Peershares land. I am ecstatic with the progress we are making, the prospects for Peershares and our implementation and extension of Peershares.

Though the USD value of the funding Peershares received has declined by about 40% over the last couple of months, we are not struggling with funding at all. Of the 200 BTC dedicated to our implementation of Peershares, 158.45542308 BTC remains unspent. The entire sixty thousand PPC balance remains unspent. There are several people who have expressed interest in providing additional funding in exchange for equity as well. We are well funded now with excellent prospects of finding additional funding when needed.

We have Peershares successfully distributing Peercoin dividends now and the features slated for initial release are rapidly approaching alpha quality. Soon we will be opening a Peershares test network to the public.

We are expanding the team. I am in negotiations with snakie (his peercointalk username), creator of peerchain.net, regarding terms for creating the website for our implementation of Peershares. While the mini-blockchain project is technically separate from Peershares because it is high risk and we don't want the success and release of Peershares to be held hostage to it, Cryddit of bitcointalk.org is working hard on this and we are ready to pay another C++ developer to work with him on it. Please contact me if you are interested and spread the word about the opening. For those who don't know, the mini-blockchain is basically a mechanism for pruning a blockchain so that it scales much better, supporting high transaction levels while requiring modest amounts of disk space. It will be open source and available to be used in other blockchain implementations.

The development of our extension of Peershares is about half code complete. When this is complete it will provide additional funding for the team.

Now is the time for businesses interested in raising funds and managing equity using Peershares to step up and seize the opportunity. Contact me if you are interested in creating your own Peershares blockchain and would like to try out our test network. The people on our team can guide you through the process of setting it all up. Peershares is no longer vaporware. I think a lot of people are still confused about what type of business could benefit from Peershares so I will briefly say that any business that wants to raise funding or manage shareholder equity in an inexpensive automated fashion could benefit. Your business need not be related to cryptocurrency. It could be a restaurant, a property management business or nearly any other type of business.

Regardless of what other businesses do, we are racing to create our extension of Peershares which will provide a real world demonstration of what Peershares has to offer. Additional details will be released in the coming weeks and months.

The first public alpha test for Windows is now live. Join the thread and test Peershares!

Peercoin Client v0.4 Released

On 4/5/14,  Peercoin creator Sunny King released client v0.4. Just to avoid any confusion, until Peerunity is released, this is the up to date version of the Peercoin client. Deadline to update from v0.3 is May 5th, 2014!

Quote
What's included in v0.4.0:
- Debug window console support in Qt, easier to get to command line e.g. unlock wallet for minting (if you enter wallet passphrase in the console please remember to use the clear button to clear it).
- Protocol adjustment required for future p2pool support. Protocol switch scheduled for May 5th.
- Experimental getblocktemplate support
- getpeerinfo support
- Bug fixes
- Mandatory upgrade release, upgrade deadline May 5th.

For the average user, there are two important things to note about v0.4.

- Improved security via bug fix. You are now required to enter your wallet pass-phrase in order to send coins when your wallet is unlocked for minting.

- There is now a debug console which makes unlocking your wallet for minting coins much easier. Open the client, go to Help - Debug console. Type in " walletpassphrase <passphrase> <time> true"  - Time being in seconds.  So if your passphrase was 123 and you wanted to unlock your wallet for 10 minutes, you would type exactly:

Quote
walletpassphrase 123 600 true

Note that it will likely require a lot longer than 10 minutes to mint coins. If you are serious about minting, I suggest unlocking the wallet for several days at least. Also keep in mind that only PPC that has been stationary for at least 30 days are eligible for minting!

You can find the PeercoinTalk thread on unlocking the wallet through the debug menu here.

Warning: If you use the debug console to unlock your wallet, make sure to hit the clear button when you're done so somebody doesn't walk up to your computer and see your pass-phrase!

Peer4Commit

Announcing Peer4Commit, where Peercoin supporters can donate to development and developers can earn PPC for adding to the cause. As of this writing, there is over 38,000 PPC up for grabs!

- Current projects include the new marketing video, Peerunity, the Android wallet and more.
- Read the Peer4Commit FAQ here.
- Check out the Primecoin version, Prime4Commit here.


Community Interview With Sunny King

Given the opportunity to ask Peercoin & Primecoin creator Sunny King their questions, the community voted and the top five questions from each category were chosen. Keep an eye on PeercoinTalk.org for details and responses.

New Peercoin Video

The community has raised funds and made contact with a video developer to create a new Peercoin promotional video. It seems the script is being finalized and you can follow the developments here.


Exchange Spotlight

- Moolah, a payment processor is planning to support Peercoin. This will give merchants an easy way to accept Peercoin for their goods/services. Peercoin has also been added to Prelude, an exchange created by the same people.

- UK supporters can now buy Peercoin from Bittylicious using a GBP bank transfer.

- HolyTransaction now supports Peercoin. Read how it works via the FAQ here.

- Coinomat now supports Peercoin. "We offer instant Peercoin exchange to BTC and fiat e-currencies such as Egopay and Perfectmoney. The whole process takes no more than 10 minutes. Good alternative to trading at an exchange."


Warning: I am only reporting on these exchanges. Please do your own research before trusting any site with your money or cryptocurrencies!

In recognition of Peershares' dependence on Peercoin, some development of Peerunity will be sponsored by the Peershares team. We also want to reach out to developers such as irigi, b0netruper, Curve25519, JSmith-BitFlipper, ghost, sengaya, ngbatnicdotmil, ErikDubbelboer, samilaine and especially vpereira who have placed pull requests against ppcoin and say: the Peercoin community is very thankful for your work and we want to cooperate closely with you to refine and test your contributions and get them into the hands of users in the Peercoin community quickly. We encourage all developers considering making a pull request against the ppcoin repository to also make a pull request against Peerunity.

To help faciliate broad community cooperation, a number of trusted Peercoin/Peershares community leaders have write permissions to the repository, meaning they can integrate the code changes into the master copy of the code. These members are Sunny King, Ben, sigmike and myself.

I have said in the past that Peercoin development will be provided and funded by our Peershares team in the future. Today that future arrives. The Peershares project will be funding user interface based minting (aka one button minting) and will also provide Peercoin branding (updating PPCoin branding) for the client in our first Peerunity release. We will also include most of the pull requests currently pending against the ppcoin repository. We want to lock down the code for testing very quickly (in a week or two) and then release very quickly after that, so if you have something you would like to contribute to the first release, please speak up quickly and we will consider your request. One button minting is already in Peerunity (thanks to sigmike and funding from Peershares) and we will be merging ppcoin pull requests in the coming days. Initially we will place changes in master. As the cutoff for feature inclusion arrives, we will branch into 0.5, stabilize the branch through testing for release and simultaneously continue adding additional improvements to master.

The days of slow or nonexistent Peercoin development are over.

- Experimental getblocktemplate support

Link to Sunny King's post

I know some of you are eagerly waiting for the new release. However remember both peercoin and primecoin are handled as mission critical software so there is a high standard of testing involved. The release candidate of v0.4 has completed testing. I will cut the release candidate tomorrow and then official build will be started.

v0.4 upgrade schedule has been fixed as following:

Release candidate for distribution - this week (expect 2~3 days)
2014-MAR-24 Testnet upgrade deadline and testnet protocol switch
2014-APR-05 Official v0.4 release for distribution
2014-MAY-05 v0.4 upgrade deadline and network protocol switch

v0.4 release includes UI usability features, protocol adjustment for possible future p2pool support and bug fixes. Upgrade is mandatory.

Thanks for your support and have fun Smiley

The title is a bit sensational.. but the article itself does  a great job of explaining what PPC is all about. Too many people think PPC is just BTC + PoS.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / First annual crypto-currency awards! Featuring host 'Baroness' Yurizhai Krayt~! on: December 11, 2013, 07:27:13 AM


                                                                                                   Helllllooo and WELCOME folks! It's the end of the year and what a year it's been in the cryptocurrency world!

I am honored to be with you here tonight folks! We have got just a fantastic show for you here tonight. Numerous categories, "live" music, and maybe even some prizes  Shocked !! Hours and hours of vigilant debates behind closed doors and the cryptogenic council is finally ready to announce it's 2013 winners! But in the end only one coin can be crowned victorious and bestowed the prestigious title of Cryptocurrency of 2013.

Let's kick it off!

                                                                                                                                     
First up, we're gonna start nice and light:

                                                                                                       Joke Coins!
They may make you smile, make you giggle, or maybe they just annoy the crap out of you; but this year there's been more than ever so lets see our nominees!!!

CATEGORY: BEST JOKE COIN OF 2013

Bit Bar: This coin wasn't even intended to be  a joke but it was so bad it became one anyway. With it's creator desperately trying to point out how it's 'scarcity' made it so cool, hired who knows how many people to talk good of it, the hilarity of this crypto is overpowering.

BBQcoin: The coin you want to eat. Indeed. I mean the name says it all. This coin has died, been revived, and now it's sitting pretty with a 4 million dollar market cap! Now that's a barbeque I'd eat at!

Dogecoin:Who can deny that face? I know I can't.





                                                                                                And the winner is.......

                                                                                                          DOGECOIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                             Wow. Such winner. Many meme. Wow.

Next up, those shady coins that create oh so many victims... Scam coins!


CATEGORY: BEST SCAM COIN OF 2013


QuarkCoin: 97% of these coins were mined before anyone had even heard of these babies! Now the shills and marketing are coming full force, the exchanges heavily manipulated creating suckers everywhere you look! This would easily  outright win the category if it's competitors weren't so insidious.

THC Coin: Not only does this coin sport the name of the most evil drug out there, it's client also installed a keylogger (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=349072.0) on your computer to steal your coins!!! That's not a coin I'll be getting high off anytime soon, hohohohho.

Goldcoin: A coin so classic in it's scammyness that it's earned a rightful spot on the list. No innovations and shills so aggressive you'd almost.. almost think it was legit.


                                                                                                                 


                                                                                                And the winner is.......





                                      QUARKCOIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                                                                                                               
                                                                                                           Thus far this coin is probably the greatest scam coin in history!


What a great start to the awards! I hope you're having as much fun as I'm having! But alas, it's time for a short intermission! Don't you worry though, tonight we're featuring live music from Black Sun Empire. This song perfectly captures the intense battle all cyrptocurrencies are waging for right to reign supreme.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zW3dGB-vl8U&feature=c4-overview&list=UUr8oc-LOaApCXWLjL7vdsgw


                                                                                         



Alright we're back. Let's continue the show! It's time to get a little more serious. Next up we start classifying the heavy hitters in the crypto world. First it's the coins that were the first to add new features, and are attempting to be serious contenders - IE not scams or jokes.



CATEGORY: MOST INNOVATIVE ALT COIN OF 2013

Primecoin
:
Created by none other than Sunny King, this coin labels itself as the first scientific proof-of-work crypto. This coin attempts to find Prime numbers, something that apparently has a rich history in mathematics. Currently at least three world records have been broken thanks to this coin, and it's future benefits may prove useful indeed.

Peercoin: Primecoin's younger sister and the first coin created by Sunny King. The first coin to implement proof-of-stake, Peercoin attempts to bring far more energy efficiency and security through non-reliance  on miners. This is ultimately trying to avoid an uncertain future down the road in regards to Bitcoin transaction fees and the ASIC miner arms race.

Namecoin: Namecoin allows access to an alternative DNS system that lies outside of a centralized control. This would enable people to to avoid censorship and reduce outages. Although I haven't of anything too significant regarding this, it may prove to be incredibly useful in the future with this whole world-wide dystopia coming out way.



             
                                        And the winner is.....................



                                                                                                                             PEERCOIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                                                                                                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                                                With it's unique design and curious developer, it's held the #3 spot for over half of 2013.


                                                                                                                                                                                           


Up next.. we take a look at the alt cryptos that have made the biggest impact in this young new movement.

CATEGORY: BEST ALT COIN OF 2013


Litecoin: Litecoin has been paving the way for all other cryptos and slowly forcing Bitcoin purists into realizing a future where only Bitcoin exists just won't happen. Every record Litecoin breaks gives hope to all other alt coins out there. It's seen explosive growth this year, growing larger than all the other alt coins combined.

Peercoin: Always 20 steps behind Litecoin, Peercoin has still made great strides this year. It remains the highest alt coin that has a feature significantly different than Litecoin, and someday aims to take Litecoin on. A fantastic year for PPC!

YACoin
: YAC coin showed us all that crypto's potential is incredible and.... just kidding.



                                                 And the winner is........................



                                                                                                                                           Litecoin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                     
                                                        All hail the King of Alt Coins.



And now we slow it down and take a journey into our second and final intermission. This time the music comes from Rameses B and captures the idea that we're all into this together and cryptos have a bright future in 2014 and beyond. 
                                            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPBHTs5mCaE

                                                                                                                   


Alright folks. The time has come. It's the time everyone has been waiting for. It is time to crown the one and only Crypto Currency of 2013.


CATEGORY: CRYPTOCURRENCY OF 2013, OUR GOD, OUR SAVIOR, THE ONE MAKING ALL THIS POSSIBLE!!!!!



         
BITCOIN

                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                  Thank you Bitcoin. Thank you.
                               
And that's the show folks. Hope you had fun. Oh! The prizes. Just post a response detailing your compliments, anger, insults, questions, statements, anything and on January 1st 2014 I will announce a winner for a very special prize. Thanks for coming, and be sure to tune in next year for the 2014 Cryptocurrency awards!

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin has ascended! Which currency will be next? on: November 28, 2013, 12:58:28 AM
My vote? Peercoin. Briefly touched 80m already, community is starting to boom, 100m+ by 2014 seems very possible.

Never forget. It was a glorious day.

BTC, LTC, PPC, NMC, FTC, probably more I didn't notice all hit their all time highs.

And now look.




Devastation.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / So what just happened with BTC-E and FTC? Ultra scam? on: November 14, 2013, 02:45:10 AM

I'm just curious. For those who don't know, they had news saying FTC was going to be removed.. FTC prices crashed 57%.. then they come back and say it's not going to be removed. Looks like quite  a few people lost money. Did anyone see how long it was between them saying it was to be removed and then not? Were they bribed to not delist it? Were they blackmailing FTC? Was it an honest mistake?!!?

There is a darkness here. We are under attack. And this is not an enemy we can fight conventionally. This is almost of the supernatural.

limitless.

A hacker seemingly from the nether realms who has taken over at least 20-30 accounts recently. Thousands of various coins stolen.  He is everyone, and he is no one. Every single person you know, even the most trusted - all limitless. It cannot be stopped alone. We must all band together if we are to survive.

Report all suspected limitless activity here.

It only makes sense if we start with me. Just who am I? Have I been compromised? Are you falling right into his maze by believing me?

Trust no one friends.
