2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / feathercoin on: October 29, 2017, 08:23:14 AM
Not much feathercoin chat in here but it seems to be the coin of the weekend.

Always a favorite imo, a coin from a period of alot less scams, still going strong and on a different path to bitcoin and litecoin, great open minded community. 
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / how BS is this all getting on: October 24, 2017, 12:01:37 PM
By 2015 i was thinking this community was too loaded with scammy premine shitcoins. Now its just full on BS.

Now premine is the normal  Shocked

Yes its lost on this crowd, but you know ICOs, premined giveaways, coins for development ( Roll Eyes ) all defeat the whole point of p2p crypto  Huh

feathercoin flies below most in this community's radar atm, but its almost now the most true to satoshi's original vision........could have a few surprises yet  Wink
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ICO's killing crypto on: September 15, 2017, 09:58:29 PM
Recent news of the imminent closer of many Chinese exchanges is the direct result of them dealing in ICOs, I've been shocked for the longest time other countries have done so, allowing ICO's to fly under regulators radar, however its only just a matter of time.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ICO ban a huge positive! on: September 04, 2017, 01:35:08 PM
China banning ICO had to happen, many countries crypto ICOs either fall in the too hard basket to ban or they are currently below regulators radar.

Without a doubt it won't happen forever and sooner all later all ICOs will be banned, and for good reason. For crypto thats a huge positive if we can filter most of these scams out, not that there isn't other altcoin scams, but banning ICOs is a huge step in the right direction.

Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) CryptoVoter LAUNCH

First Coin to Decentralize Development thru
CryptoVoter’s Shareholder-style Blockchain Voting

- as featured in techcrunch -

BTCS Voting Website | CryptoVoter Website | BTC Voting Website

Latest Clients (downloads and source-codes below):
Wallet Client: Bitcoin-sCrypt v.1.4.0
Voting Client: CryptoVoter-BTCS v.1.10.1

Bitcoin-sCrypt - CryptoVoter

After over a year and a half of development by self-funding (and refusing to prefund vaporware with an ICO or premine) the CryptoVoter development team has developed an open-source shareholder-style blockchain voting client and Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) will be first cryptocoin to use CryptoVoter’s blockchain voting client to decentralize crypto development.

CryptoVoter’s new and unique blockchain voting system was recently featured in techcrunch and CryptoCoinNews.

The community will guide development on future cryptocoin features.  Pulling features instead of pushing them.   This is the future of cryptocoin development.  Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) will lead the way.

The open-source voting client has been developed and alpha-tested.

No vaporware.  No ICO’s.  No pre-mines.   Real software.  Real voting.  Real decentralization.

Shareholder-style blockchain voting is here.  Decentralized cryptocoin governance is now.

Welcome to Altcoins 2.0.

Bitcoin-sCrypt – Decentralized Development

While the original Bitcoin (BTC) provides decentralized transaction exchange and confirmation, development follows a centralized top-down model.  Bitcoin-sCrypt (BTCS) development is committed to decentralizing development by having users vote on development issues with vote weight based on coin ownership percentages, just like shareholder voting in a corporation.   What’s more, Bitcoin-sCrypt users can propose items to be voted on so Bitcoin-sCrypt development is truly community-driven.

Future votes include whether to change the mining algo to become more asic resistant, whether to switch to a hybrid or a pure Proof-of-Stake system; whether to adopt anonymity features; whether to increase the blocksize; and whether to adopt new cryptocoin features and functionality, as proposed by the coin-holders themselves.

How Voting Works:

Users can cast votes manually, or use the CryptoVoter voting client to automatically cast votes, by creating vanity Bitcoin voting addresses in the user’s own wallet to allow them to send coins from one address in their wallet to another address in the same wallet by a designated blockheight deadline to publicly register votes.  Voters never give up control of their private keys before, during or after votes.  At the designated voting blockheight deadline (which is announced 48-72 hours before the estimated voting deadline), all non-zero balances of matching vanity Bitcoin voting addresses are tallied to count votes and can be independently counted by anyone using a blockchain explorer.  

An infographic explaining how it works can be found here.

How to Vote:

To automatically cast a vote, download the CryptoVoter-BTCS voting client and launch the client to get the latest voting question and answer choices.  You can also view past vote results and future voting questions in the client.

To manually cast a vote, visit to get the latest voting question and manual voting instructions.  You can also view past vote results and future voting questions on the website.
