1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ZLQ] Zlitequbit - Why has the project been shut down?? on: November 28, 2016, 03:21:21 AM
ZLQ was a new coin, launched November 8th with PoW & an airdrop.  Less than TWO WEEKS later, the thread was locked on November 21st. 

All the github code has also been deleted. My wallet (with no added nodes) only has one connection - (you are a saint)

Here is the Announcement thread where it states "closed due to lack of interest by the community"

Trapsy's last few posts include 'we need to slowly build a community'; we've received a ton of PMs by members interested in joining the team'...but the kicker is this:

It's not my fault if i spent 2 days answering hundreds pm,checking all fake entries from airdrop,receiving multiple time stress question like "when you sent airdrop? "when give me the coin"."am i entered" and then everyone disappeared and sell on market.

1600 user received free coin. Want to give value? Help with promotion,enjoy team,tell us what are you skills and what you can do.
But not like " great project, i want to take part of team, give me btc so i can work".
You deserve ICO next time, not free coin.

I was one of those members who offered to help - and obviously not the only one.  Was this the dev's first coin, to be surprised that a ton of users dumped their airdropped coins?  That is an issue every airdrop coin faces, but that rarely kills the project outright.  Followed by what seems to be a reversal on the whole 'a ton of members offered to help'.  Only TWO WEEKS and this is what killed it?  Many coins don't take off/grow popular for weeks/months! 

Anyone have a clue what happened here?  Is there an alternate motive being played by the dev, or was he simply butthurt that people dumped their free coins?  It doesn't make sense...sure it was another altcoin, but I was adamant on joining a team behind the project with hopes that it would grow....

Thanks in advance for any input Undecided
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Desirable Specifications for New Altcoins on: October 14, 2016, 02:36:16 AM
Hey guys.

What is it about new coins that pique your interest?

PoW or PoS?  A mix of both?

Disregarding a coin's algorithm hashing well on your new GPU/ASIC, what specifications in which you look for in a new altcoin; what keeps a network strong, rather than dying out in a week after the value drops to a satoshi or lower (due to premines, big miners dumping what they ninja'd, etc.)

Details such as block reward, time, retarget - what sort of crowd does a certain variable result in attracting?

Sorry if these questions are vague...I'm just curious what the community is attracted to & repulsed by (I see a lot of, 'scrypt clone? pass').

Thanks for any and all input!

4  Economy / Service Discussion / Why is offering escrow bad? on: August 25, 2016, 12:05:31 AM
I've been offering free escrow in altcoin threads, so that I could build up a trustworthy reputation.

Just today I figured I'd look at my trust scores, since I have provided such service for one trade (two parties, ESP for BTC).

Noticed a bunch of negative feedback regarding my offering of escrow.  Why is this?  These people whom left negative scores haven't even dealt with me - just tarnishing a reputation that hasn't been built yet.

I was curious as to how account buying and selling works, which also caused a bunch of people to leave negative feedback - I could prove this is my account, and was simply curious how this works.  I couldn't sell this if I wanted to, as it is tied to my accounts on other sites (email & contacts etc.):

Immediately people jumped on the post, all sorts of accusations:;u=543426

Bottom line:  why is everyone so hostile?  I understand this is a dangerous game people play, but I was legitimately providing escrow & would do so again.  I could have ran with the money I held for those two traders - but wanted to build a reputation.  Now what??  I'm just...screwed?  Is this why people buy and sell accounts?

Sorry for the ignorance, but I just don't understand the mindset...
5  Other / Off-topic / Internet of Things (IOT) + crypto - what's the point? on: August 22, 2016, 12:25:32 AM
The definition of IOT (internet of things):

"The internet of things (IoT) is the network of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.[1] In 2013 the Global Standards Initiative on Internet of Things (IoT-GSI) defined the IoT as "the infrastructure of the information society." [2] The IoT allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure,[3] creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit.[4][5][6][7][8][9] When IoT is augmented with sensors and actuators, the technology becomes an instance of the more general class of cyber-physical systems, which also encompasses technologies such as smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities." (source)

Some projects that hype IOT:

tilepay's platform leverages the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) market. The platform enables registration via a wide variety of connected devices, using the sensors to obtain data regarding consumer use of the devices per their choice, verifying the authenticity of the data, and publishing the verified data on the tilepay web marketplace.
Peer-to-peer (P2P) Blockchain architecture embodied in the cryptocurrency Bitcoin to manage devices and data within the Internet of Things (IoT).

"You can start testing and developing new integration with ROKOS and your favorite cryptocurrencies for your IoT projects."

A consultancy specializing in IoT security. We focus on device key management solutions with dedicated embedded cryptographic hardware.

Install 21 and get bitcoin on any device. Earn bitcoin on every HTTP request.

Ensuring drug safety with blockchain technology.

What I'm wondering is: Where are all the products?

What applications have true value and functionality?  Do they actually solve any problems that currently plague the modern world?  Won't the 'IOT' be brand-specific and, as such, proprietary - meaning more issues for open-source projects such as crypto-integration?

I'd like your opinions on the matter, because it seems as if more and more copycats are released each day, using 'IOT' as a buzzword to catch blind investors.
6  Economy / Reputation / dania1990/altsinvestor - duplicate accounts, do not believe the fake hype! on: July 20, 2016, 04:44:58 AM
user 'altsinvestor' just created a thread asking people to buy into some random altcoin 'TRUST' (ironic), and I mistook him for another user, dania1990 - who just so happened to be the first reply in the thread (here)

trust coin is going to poloniex!!! moon

User 'dania1990' has....quite similar posting style; somehow happening to know exactly what coin will be added to poloniex (because that's indicative of legitimacy) and 'confirming' the news with....a link to bittrex markets, while simultaneously recommending everyone buy in to said dead/scam coin from bittrex:

poloniex is adding BITZ next!!!!! , price gonna skyrocket

Look at the similarity in writing/spam style:



Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on these two accounts - don't want to see anyone buy this user's worthless coins in false hope.

This raffle ends once all slots are filled.  

Good luck!

10  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless-G Routers, *Customized* TP-LINK TL-WR703N Mini on: June 28, 2016, 01:08:53 AM

Two Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless-G Routers - one is V1, the other is V1.5.  Ethernet & Power cables included.  Both work flawlessly.

Although I don't want to part with it, I'm also willing to sell a TP-LINK WR703N wireless router, which I've customized to act as a rogue AP/Pineapple, allowing this router to do all sorts of exciting things (if you're close to a starbucks Tongue).

If sold, the two Linksys routers will be factory reset; the TP-LINK router will keep its custom firmware on the USB drive (from which it runs the OpenWRT operating system) but I will create a default admin/password login for tunneling into the device through SSH.

Full Album Here (front/back/sizes)

Selling the two Linksys WRT54G2 routers @ .07 BTC each (or best offer).  I'm still undecided on how much I should charge for the TP-LINK router, as it can perform activities which should only be done by those whom wear a white hat, so I'll accept offers from the community for that device.

This sale will stay open indefinitely - the three devices are only collecting dust unless I find a use for them.  PMs also accepted.

Cheers  Smiley
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin? on: June 24, 2016, 07:09:17 PM
What's been happening with litecoin recently?  What made its price rise a bit, and why has it taken such a hard plunge recently?  Will it recover like most altcoins have after the recent bitcoin activity?
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / DDoS targeting exchanges? on: June 17, 2016, 06:12:09 AM
Both yobit and Cryptopia seem to be down/grinding to a halt. These sites are hardly ever down; even rarer to see both down at the same time.

Whats going on? It feels like a targeted attack - but why? For what gain? And why both sites? Anyone have any information on the situation?
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Decentralized Applications = Vaporware? on: May 26, 2016, 10:28:58 PM
Am I the only one (besides hitler) who is amazed that people truly believe ETH produces functional/useful/innovative 'dapps'?

Their OFFICIAL dapp page is just filled with links to horribly designed web 2.0 sites, which provide services that can be (and might be) made with any run-of-the-mill programming language.


For example, I'll click some links:

  • Proof of phone - Submit your number and it ties to an ETH address (who uses this for verifying users?). For a low service fee of .1 ETH! Innovation!
  • Ether Digger - Took 15 seconds to load.  Ponzi scheme.
  • Ethereum Games - Site appears to be from 1995.  Ponzi scheme.
  • Eth Sports - Site is down.

How exactly is 'running on Ethereum' special? I'm genuinely curious, because the idea is great.  But this isn't it.

This thread reserved for public repository of escrow information.

Deposit addresses & such will go here as well as the names of buyers and sellers, to lessen the risk of anyone getting scammed & so that others can view transactions as they happen.

I also have a bunch of Origin game keys for sale, let me know if you have an Origin account & I'll list those games as well!

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Android Mini PCs on: May 01, 2016, 11:16:35 PM
I have a quad core mini PC running Android 4.4.4 (description here).  Wondering if there are any popular/profitable altcoins that I could use this device in conjunction with - for example, setting up a dedicated node or plain old PoS (unless the coin is dead).

Anyone have other ideas for what I could do with this device, in regards to crypto?  I could probably flash the device & run linux on it, even get a linux app (?) if that opens up any possibilities (for example, something impossible on stock android).

If anyone is running a node or mining PoS on android, please list which coin(s) here!

Thanks in advance for any ideas
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Currently staking? on: February 02, 2016, 12:28:48 AM
Hi guys,

I just received an android TV stick, and figured I'd use it to stake coins 24/7.  Only problem is I haven't looked into rooting the thing yet, so I'm limited to staking coins that have an android wallet.  Any suggestions?  Any good apps on the play store that have been released recently that I could use?  CUBE is the last coin that I've used on the device, if that helps any Smiley

Thanks in advance.

20  Other / Meta / Potential Activity? on: December 01, 2015, 12:26:54 PM
Hi guys,

How does one measure their 'potential activity'?  Apparently that is a detail many people like to see when purchasing accounts here, and I'd like to know how it's calculated/what the formula is for finding a user's potential activity score.

Does it have to do with how old an account is, or how many posts a user has written in relation to another factor?

Thanks in advance Smiley
