1  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / What is the current max block size? on: November 23, 2017, 12:32:15 PM
I've been away from bitcoin for a while and just checked a bitcoin block explorer to find blocks larger than 1MB. Has the maximum block size been raised or has this got something to do with segwit? Also if the max block size has gone up what is it now?
2  Bitcoin / Electrum / Electrum mac wallet keeps crashing on: October 21, 2017, 03:55:36 PM
My bitcoin electrum mac wallet keeps crashing whenever i try to send bitcoin. I think it is due to the high node connections my wallet has. Is there a way to limit the amount of nodes electrum connects to?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Buy LTC now to avoid missing out on: June 11, 2017, 02:52:57 PM
LTC will hit at least $100 by years end. It could go as high as $400. Buy now profit later.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / To litecoin haters on: April 03, 2017, 10:51:44 AM
I know you are reading this. I know you used to say that LTC is dead, will never break $5 again etc. However you should know it is not to late to board the LTC train. $9 is just the beginning for LTC. I am willing to bet one day we will see $20,$30,$40,$50,$200 LTC! Good things come to those who wait Smiley
5  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Good entry level miner on: February 25, 2017, 10:22:49 AM
Are there still good entry level miners? Or is mining dead for the individual?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / The return of litecoin on: December 05, 2016, 02:33:46 AM
2017 will be the year of litecoin making its comeback as altcoin king. Development has picked up, price is ready to explode with lots of accumulation happening at the moment and eth is dying.

Buy litecoin and hold before 2017 starts. Good things come to those who wait!

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is ether a business or a crypto?? on: June 22, 2016, 05:57:30 PM
Not sure if there is much of a difference anymore. The people at the top are rich/will be rich while the peasants at the bottom put up with the fact that 90% of the marketcap belongs to the upper eth class. Not to mention a certain dictator who wants to roll back the blockchain which goes against everything the blockchain stands for - satoshi would be hanging his head in shame. To top it all proof of stake will make things even worse due to the millions of coins the devs hold. In short ether has been built by the devs for the devs, even if it fails they will be rich and not give a shit.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Why i am going all out in litecoin on: June 20, 2016, 08:26:22 AM
Back at the start of this year i was unsure of litecoins future but with this eth fiasco and more scams being launched everyday i am sure now that litecoin is bitcoins successor. People will laugh now but by the end of this year i can guarantee they will be crying. Litecoin was launched in october of 2011 by coblee (Charlee lee an ex google software engineer) and was launched fairly, no premine, no ICO/IPO, no absurd promises and no greed. Just a vision to create a crypto as a true alternative to bitcoin. Litecoin grew naturally over the years, it took 9 months to grow from $0 to $0.05 and another 12 months to go to $2.50. Then 5 months later it went from $2.50 to $48. Many early adopters became rich overnight. No IPO/ICO and no hype just vision and humble progress.

Back at the start of this year litecoin was $3.20, now it is around $5.30. That is a $2.10 gain per coin in just 6 months time. Marketcap at start of year was around 145 million now it is 260 million. Litecoin is by no doubt growing only those with myopic vision would question it. People always say that litecoin has no development but why fix something that is not broken? Litecoin does its job as an alternative currency perfectly - it just works.

To get to the main point of this post i will be buying $300 of litecoin every week from now on, that is around 30% of my weekly pay. I encourage others who also think that litecoin is going to rise to do the same. I might revisit this thread someday as a millionaire or as someone who lost thousands of dollars. I think it will be the former.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Boycott all IPO/ICO coins on: June 17, 2016, 08:44:00 PM
I call on people to boycott all coins launched via IPO/ICO. They are all shit and are destined to die. There have been so many IPO/ICO scams it really is not funny anymore, people get burned over and over and over again and they learn jackshit.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Deploy virus on ether blockchain on: June 17, 2016, 06:19:28 PM
What is stopping me from deploying a virus disguised as a dapp on the ether blockchain? I think i will begin work on a keylogger and market it as a dapp.  Grin
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin is starting to trek upwards on: April 24, 2016, 02:26:50 PM
Litecoin has been increasing quite a bit lately. Price has gone up from $3.20 to $3.45 in a day. Those who are not buying into litecoin are going to regret it. Later this year litecoin will reclaim its position as altcoin king mark my words.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin is showing nice stability on: April 09, 2016, 05:46:11 PM
Litecoin price and volume have been stable for the last 3 months. They have not gone up but they have not gone down either. I think litecoin is going to come back in a big way by the end of this year.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Eth bubble has popped - Will you be left a bagholder? on: April 08, 2016, 03:31:39 PM
Eth bubble has popped this shit is going back to the $1-$2 range. Do the smart thing and sell while price is still $9. If you dont believe me or think this is fud just look at ether charts for the last month price has fallen from $13 to $9.82.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Why old coins will rise once more on: March 27, 2016, 11:38:00 AM
I think once people realise that IPO/ICO/Premine coins are scams and overhyped they will move back into old coins. I mean if you look at the ratio of new coins scamming vs the ratio of old coins scamming new coins are more likely to be scams. Add to this overhyped crypto like ether and emercoin which seem to have pumps for no apparant reason and it becomes rather sad to see what has become of altcoins. Altcoins were once used for experimentation, to provide an alternative to bitcoin, instead people nowadays create altcoins either to scam or get rich. The worst case of this is IPOS/ICOS where devs make millions while everyone else is fucked over. Yes programmers have to be paid but they should be paid after goals are met.  

I think after all the hype dies down one of three things will happen:

1. People will move back into old coins like LTC,PPC,NMC and they will moon like they did in 2013
2. People will sell coins and go into bitcoin
3. People will sell for bitcoin, dump for fiat and leave crypto altogether

This is just my opinion i could be totally wrong and etherum might dethrone bitcoin(god help us if this happens).
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Etherum is a tool for banks on: March 26, 2016, 01:38:22 PM
do you really think that banks will use something they cannot control? The banks are only using ether at moment to reverse engineer its tech. They will build a centralised clone sooner or later.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Invested $2000 in peercoin 11 months ago - Just realised i got a 110% ROI on: March 19, 2016, 02:08:52 PM
11 months ago i bought $2000 worth of peercoin as a long term investment. At this time peercoin was selling at $0.22 so i thought it would be a good time to buy in. I bought the ppc put them in a wallet and didn't really monitor the price. I was recently going over my portfolio and you can imagine my surprise when i realised my peercoins had more than doubled in value. The current exchange rate for 1 peercoin is currently $0.47 by the way.

The lesson to be learned here is that long term investments can sometimes pay off better than short ones. Back when i bought into ppc people were saying that ppc was dead and would crash to $0.05 in a month - it ended up doing the opposite and increased its value by more than 100% over a year.

I am considering putting more into ppc, who knows maybe in 12 months time ppc will be $10 each lol.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / To all people who think ether is the best thing to happen since sliced bread on: March 16, 2016, 04:23:28 PM
Show me one useful dapp that is not in beta that your average person on the street can use. Provide reasons why they would use a dapp instead of a regular app say a ipad.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Eth bubble is about to pop on: March 13, 2016, 06:39:24 AM
Eth bubble is about to pop pull put while you can. I just sold all my ether for btc and bought 500 LTC which is a far more stable and safe coin to store value in. Think about it what has ether done to deserve $14 value??

Is it used as a currency - NO
Is it widely used for smartcontracts - NOT AT THIS STAGE
Does it have solid design - NOPE ITS FULL OF BUGS

The only thing holding the price up at the moment is hype, once that dies down ether is going down to $1-$2 range.
