1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / [CPU-Mining] Mining Datacoin with 0% Fee on: February 02, 2014, 07:42:05 PM

Tutorial to mine:


datacoin blockchain explorer:

How to mine:
First download the a miner:

Candyminer Windows:

*Make sure you are downloading the Candyminer ( download the one for XPM - it works with dtc too ). Other miners on that page won't work with candypool.

Linux Miner:

After that start the miner by commandline or batch file with the following parameters.
candyMiner-T17v12.exe -o -u username.workername -p workerpassword -m 47 -m2 53 -m3 59 -m4 67
In the windows download package is already a batch file included that you can change ( username / password ) and use.
In case you are using linux you need to call the miner with parameters given above.

note: remember to create a worker on candypool and edit "username.workername"

Past history

The Protoshares / Invictus people are involved with this.  For anyone who isn't familiar with their products like Protoshares, I'm not even kidding or exaggerating here, they're a combination of 50% crypto-fascism, and 50% crypto-socialism.  I'm not sure if they will even bother trying to refute this claim since the dictionary definitions line up exactly with what they have attempted to create in the past.

Occam's Razor - Never heard of it

Just like Sunny "The Taxman" King, the Ethereum people have never heard of the word "Occam's Razor".  There are hundreds, if not thousands of Arbitrary variables in Ethereum they get to tinker and play God with.  Bitcoin is popular because it's a simple, straightforward, trust free system.  You don't have little leprechauns behind the scenes randomly assigning values based on whatever they feel like that day.  All people want is freedom from bankers, they do not want some bizarre, poorly thought out, weirdo economic system forced on them that looks like it was designed by Mussolini.

Goldman Sachs?  Are you serious

Accompanying the previous point, we have alleged Goldman Sachs involvement:

IPO Scam and premine - Check

Why have only one scam when you can have two at the same time !

Things nobody wants or needs - Check

It's not even a currency.  You're initially being sold as getting involved with a currency, yet their plans include things like moving a large portion of the IPO into the establishment of a "decentralized autonomous organization", another Protoshares buzz/scam word.  Just like every other variable in this plot, they don't even bother listing what the purpose of such an entity is, or why you should want it.  You might as well be investing in decentralized, autonomous, robots armed with machine guns.  There's just zero reason for you to want any of this stuff to exist.

Not this again

The past Invictus / Protoshares people have always been knee deep in scandals involving pre-mines in things like Memory coin, or "Freetrade" and all his baggage.

The bottom line

This is nothing but a rebranding of Protoshares, an already failed concept.

I could go on for days.  It makes me almost physically ill reading anything remotely affiliated with Invictus / Protoshares people.

- They are asking an insane 30k BTC

- 50% pre mined

- They are setting a price out of nothing for 1 eth, while it's not even out yet

- "ex" Goldman Sachs pricks are supporting this project

aaand probably other red flags i'm not aware of.

this amount of premine and greed with Ethereum devs are of epic proportion. good luck to those "invest" in this.

They do have ex Goldman Sachs members on their team. Those guys are taught to "leave nothing on the table". This  IPO was created and structured by Goldman guys. This is why it leaves zero crumbs on the table for the average guy.

My personal opinion: Do you really think a all-in-one package coin will be a revolution? Bitcoin is a success because its simple, made from scratch, for people to transact on their own terms, and thats it.
4  Economy / Service Discussion / withdraw [Possible Scam] on: November 28, 2013, 09:39:05 PM
Hi, I had around 0.09 btc's on my account from a long time and decided to withdraw them to my wallet and buy some gifts during bitcoin friday... but it seems that every time that I want to withdraw from them, I have to contact the owner "mc_lovin";u=32204

But this time neither coinurl support has replied neither has him(for the last~5days)... so all I can do right now is open a thread here, and let people know that they can't be trusted with money.

Please complete my withdraw ~0.09btc's to this address: 182HxVw8yq9gbutxvr1ApTowcHgod3mQ4K

Username: usertry

I have worked hard for those btc's.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Help the bitcoin network by being a node. on: November 13, 2013, 12:21:07 PM
Hi guys, as a bitcoiner (for at least 2 years now) I have really never contributed to bitcoin, besides buying some and holding.

So last week I rented a cheap cloud server and installed bitcoind, to help bitcoin network stay stable and strong, and it feels really good.

It costs only 5$ a month and has 20gb SSD (faster than HDD) so the blockchain fits pretty well. Been running for a week and hasn't crashed. (running on ubuntu 12.04 x32)

(located in amsterdam)

(bandwidth going out peaks)

(cpu in the last 24h)

Tutorial on how to install bitcoind ubuntu 12.04:

//installing bitcoind on ubuntu 12.04, run this commands on putty

sudo aptitude install python-software-properties

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin

sudo aptitude update

sudo aptitude install bitcoind

mkdir ~/.bitcoin/

Next STEP: Configure Bitcoind

Edit an empty ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf file in the .bitcoin folder:
nano ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf

Insert the following code in it:

press Ctrl+O to save and Ctrl+X (to exit I think)

Then, to start bitcoind write:


It will output “Bitcoin server starting”

The blockchain now will begin to download, to view the status of the download write:

bitcoind getinfo

For ubuntu 13.10


//installing bitcoind on Ubuntu 13.10, run this commands on putty

mkdir ~/.bitcoin/
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude upgrade
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo aptitude install bitcoind

Next STEP: Configure Bitcoind

Edit an empty ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf file in the .bitcoin folder:
nano ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf

Insert the following code in it:

press Ctrl+O to save and Ctrl+E (to exit I think)

Then, to start bitcoind write:


It will output "Bitcoin server starting"

The blockchain now will begin to download, to view the status of the download write:

bitcoind getinfo

It costs only 5 bucks and you are helping the network grow stronger.


Verifying transactions absolutely DOES help the network even if you are not mining. Here's a recap of why we need nodes:

To operate, P2P wallets need to connect to P2P nodes.

Then they need to download the block chain, possibly a filtered version of it. And they need to hear about any transactions that didn't confirm yet, but which are valid and sitting in the memory pool. This is vital so someone can send you money, and you can open your wallet and see it immediately.

Storing the block chain, serving/filtering the chain, verifying and relaying transactions, all this takes resources.

When you run a node, you take some of that load onto your own shoulders. The work gets spread out, so as the number of users goes up, we need to keep adding nodes to ensure it stays relatively cheap and easy to do so.

The most important things when running a node are

1) ensuring that you are allowing inbound connections. If you run a node at home or behind a firewall, it's vital you ensure it's set up right so other nodes and wallets can connect to yours.

2) staying up to date with the latest software

Thanks to everyone who is running a node, upgrading it and accepting inbound connections! You are contributing to Bitcoin in a very direct and helpful manner.
