1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Chesscoin ICO .... Stay away! on: June 15, 2016, 10:43:05 PM
Without question this is a horrible idea. The ICO model is extremely greedy and development is focused on ideas that will not work. Any online chess tournament with significant prizes will attract bots strong enough to beat the best players in the world.

No evidence of Chess DAPPs ideas of any value have been presented. I see lots of buzzwords and zero substance.

Stay away!

There are thousands of chess games played online everyday. Enthusiastic chess players spend a lot of time playing chess without any achievement. Many chess softwares and websites have built up modern platforms for chess players to fight against computer and human or to join online tournaments in all formats which are the same as authentic tournaments. The difference between those two tournaments is that online players just receive virtual medals without any material value. If there is a game-based platform in which chess players are paid whenever they win a game or a tournament, it would be great chances for millions of people whose dreams are to play chess for real award. That platform which is based on an advanced  prize delivering system will hold both amateur and professional tournaments in all levels. Accompany with the quick development of blockchain technology, that platform will eventually come true. We, the men who are enthusiastic in both chess and cryptocurrency have been working hard to build up a Blockchain based Chess Dapp or Decentralized Chess Playing Platform which is fueled by a cryptocoin, named ChessCoin.

ChessCoin Specifications
    Coin name: ChessCoin
     Coin Ticker: CHESS
     Algorithm: Scrypt
     Type: Hybrid PoW/PoS
     PoW lasts for 4096 Blocks
     PoS works from beginning.
     Block reward: 64
     Target spacing: 64 seconds    
     Max supply: 74.666.667
     Premine percent: 64%
     Premine amount: 48.000.000
     Min stake time: 2 hours
     Coinbase maturity: 32 blocks

Premine is used for ICO to raise fund for further development of ChessCoin based Dapps. PoW which lasts not too long (4096 blocks) is for stabilizing and securing ChessCoin network at the early phase. 32% anual stake reward would not be high because this will encourage ChessCoin investors to hold it for long term. One another important thing is that an impressive PoS reward will be more attractive to chess community. The more people join in , the more value ChessCoin will increase.

2  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Public statements from large mining farms regarding block size limits. on: August 12, 2015, 02:15:43 AM
I see many statements from well known community members and core developers about present and future block size limits.

I do not see a lot of are statements from the largest mining farms.

I have heard Blockstream has been attempting to lobby some of these groups. Are there any links to statements from large mining farms?

My identity will remain secret for now but I am a professional chess player, ranked amongst the best in the world:

I am here to play a game of chess against the bitcointalk community.

Chess consumes my public life, but in private I have been fascinated with bitcoin for several years. I have plans to come out of my cryptocurrency closet when the time is right.

You all can work together. Let community consensus determine which move you make. You may play the white pieces and move first. After you have reached consensus I will make my move at a frequency of roughly 24-48 hours (depending on my schedule).  Please do not attempt to use timing as a basis for determining my identity. I may write a basic script to log in and post my move (or have a trusted friend do so for me) while I am asleep or am known to be at a public event.  I registered this account with an email address which I have never used and will never log on from an IP address that can be connected to me. When the time is right I will reveal more.

To make things easier for the community, I suggest all your moves are discussed in algebraic notation

Your move bitcointalk. You have the black pieces
