1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Mastercard Blockchain + Cisco Blockchain Patents - WTF? on: October 24, 2017, 08:06:01 AM
Please share your thoughts on:

Mastercard Blockchain facilitates new commerce opportunities for the digital transfer of value by allowing businesses and financial institutions to transact on a distributed ledger.  Our technology can power multiple use cases and can help take time, cost and risk out of financial flows.


Tech conglomerate Cisco Systems has proposed a blockchain system to track Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

In an application released by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Thursday, the technology giant outlined a blockchain platform that can identify different connected devices, monitor their activity and evaluate how trustworthy the device is when connected to a network.

It is really starting to annoy me as this is using a small part of what the underlying system behind bitcoin and many other cryptocurrencies provide. I am not surprised, just wondering how this patents will affect existing and future progress in the open-source communities? What can we do to warn people about these idiots using it as a buzzword. I mean its hilarious that Mastercard even capitalized blockchain as though its a product.

Please share thoughts Smiley
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Thoughts on doing something similar to Pokemon GO to Mine Crytp on: July 16, 2016, 03:56:15 PM
Just wanted to know if anyone has any thoughts on or know of any projects that are doing this?

I know Huntercoin is one, but i dont think its in the same scale and with the GPS etc:

I think it would be a great concept to gamify the mining process. Coins being distributed all around the world and people going after them.

Would love to hear some thoughts on this.


3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / 2014 Proof of Honor (POH) Awards | Results Posted! on: January 10, 2015, 09:38:40 PM

[Coins Source 2014 Proof of Honor Results]

Our quest to seek, select and honor the most dedicated people within this thriving industry has led us to a glorious end. The 2014 Proof of Honor nominations have brought many dedicated and talented individuals to the stage – people who power this glorious arena from its core. Like all other challenges, we must remain wary of people who look to dishonor such a process and take advantage of the spotlight ignited by otherwise honorable people. For this reason, we have done our best to filter through the votes and select one individual worthy of the title.

Our journey has not been without challenges. The overall scope of this market has been displayed on a global scale, with individuals battling and fighting together for a greater cause – an idea that they believe in and respect. Some of the greatest forms of movement are the ones sparked by passion and belief. It is this element that leads to power the gears that keep us moving forward in times of hardship and despair. Moments that scale our worth, those that will separate the average from the great, the very formation of a warrior rendered by belief.

An amazing part of this process was being able to witness the communities coming together to represent their leaders. Cryptocurrency communities such Nxt, Megacoin, BitShare and Vericoin.

With that said, I am happy to announce the 2014 Proof of Honor winner, Evan Duffield. Evan is the Founder and inventor of Darkcoin, who has stood above all to extend the Bitcoin protocol. The commitment and power behind your community has been remarkable to witness. You have great supporters across all social media platforms, whether it be Bitcointalk or Twitter. It is with great honor that we present to you this award for all the hard work and dedication you have placed towards not only Darkcoin and its community, but also the overall progression of the Bitcoin philosophy.
This includes development such as the X11 algorithm or the Dark Gravity Well, which brought about a more fair and evenly method of distribution and mining to the recent conquest of the long unsolved issue of instant transactions. We applaud you for thinking outside the box and for placing the users’ safety and security first.

Interview with Evan Duffield


The facebook votes for rynomster have been disqualified due to the large number of double and non-legit votes and for not honoring the terms of this award. This however would not have changed the winner.

We would also note the individuals who are new to the crypto scene though have been supported in great numbers. People such as Joe Lao from Magi and Kingscrown from Exclusive Coin.

There were also a great number of votes for a number of representatives from the NXT platform. This was great to see and experience! Well done to everyone else who has been named in our 2014 Proof of Honor awards. On behalf of Coins Source and I, thank you and we hope to see you all at our next proof of honor award ceremony!

We have users from all across planet with countries such as Australia, Japan, China, Indonesia, Romania, Russia, Italy, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Canada, United States, Brazil and many more. This resembles the true power of this peer-to-peer philosophy.
