2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ANN] Calling all beta testers! on: July 28, 2013, 04:50:04 PM
Calling all Beta testers

Some of you may have heard a little about Project Infinite, well, I am here to tell you that we are entering the final stages and we will be needing beta testers in the next couple of weeks.

There are 100 slots available, so if you want to try out our amazing idea, be quick! The first 100 people to post their interest will be accepted. The counts will be for both here and altcointalk where there will be a beta testers discussion area.

The beta test will consist of each person saving 10,000 Infinite coins for 10 days at 100% interest. So to take part you will need to have 10,000 Infinite coins in hand. You can purchase them at cryptsy.com if you don't already have some.

For those of you that don't know about Project Infinite, let me tell you a little about it...

Project Infinite is now called AltCoinSavings, it is essentially a decentralized savings account... It is decentralized in the sense that your coins are not kept on some server somewhere, or in a air bridge vault in someones office. The coins will stay with you the entire time! That's right!

Let me explain the process so you can better understand.

When you sign up you will be required to download a slightly altered wallet. The source code will be available to view so you know nothing untoward is going on there. The only changes that are made are to the name of the wallet and to some directories that will allow you to have 2 wallets on the same PC.

There is a reason for this of course and that will become apparent soon enough.

So, you have downloaded the wallet and let it sync, now you can choose one of the contracts on offer (though in the Beta there will only be one, as described). The contracts will vary depending on the current price of Infinitecoin. There will be a maximum limit so that we can offer this to as many people as possible.

When you pick the contract you will be asked to deposit your chosen amount into your IFCsavings wallet that you downloaded and hit start once the coins have cleared. From there, we will do the rest! Once you have deposited and hit start we will use a blockchain explorer to query the address you provided, it will check the balance and if it comes back okay your contract will begin! All you have to do is leave the coins in the wallet for the specified amount of time. If you move the coins out at any time then the contract will be void and you will lose any interest you had earned. We will know when this has happened because the block explorer will be constantly monitoring the IFCsavings wallet.

This is why we need the second wallet, you can not use this wallet for anything else or the wallet will create a new address and throw the block explorer off resulting in you losing the interest earned.

Now to top all this off you will be able to view your balance growing with a real time ticker!

This all sounds great, but how will you pay for the interest? You may ask, well, to get things going we have 1 Billion Infinite coins. But to replenish the pot we will be using advertising revenue. So we will encourage all of our members to please at least consider visiting some of our partners, and that is it. Smiley There will also be the option to donate and many other ideas that we have in store!

Don't think of AltCoinSavings as being the end of Project Infinite... It is merely the beginning!

DISCLAIMER: The wallet is new and in alpha phase at present, please only use it if you know what you are doing. The source code here is mainly so that developers or people that can read source code can look over it to see that nothing sinister is going on. Please use this at your own risk

As promised here is the source code for the IFCsavings Wallet. If someone could have a go compiling it that would be fantastic (our guy is a linux man).

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Time to get some help or opinions... Please read. on: July 19, 2013, 08:27:14 AM
Hi, I have come up with a great idea and wanted to get some input from you guys. And to call out to any developers/web designers that would want to help out.

Okay so it is a savings account for infinitecoin. We would like to be able to never touch our clients money and wondered if it would be possible to ensure the money is not spent via monitoring the blockchain automatically? So say someone wants to save 10000 IFC's it would need to be able to monitor the blockchain to ensure at least 10000 coins are in the wallet. Or perhaps the client could install a second wallet and only use it as their savings account. So we could easily check if the coins are deposited and not withdrawn...

The next big thing is I would like a ticker, the kind found on debt time bomb, only I want this to display what the saver is making, in real time... I'm not sure how technically difficult this would be?

I would want everything automated. From signing up to cashing out... But if that is too difficult we can be flexible here.

Also after a savings period is up we would need an option for the saver to continue, with even better terms... Again this can be flexible, depending on difficulty.

The site will also be monetized with ads. The profits of which will go towards purchasing more coins to offer more contracts.

We are starting with a pot of currently 600,000,000 IFC's... This has been donated by myself and my business partner... If the need arises more can be provided.

We would be offering short term savings contracts such as

10 days = 1%
20 days = 2%
30 days =2.5%
60 days =3%
120 days =5%

There will be a savings cap of around 10,000 to ensure the coins are distributed evenly. Though this may change. And multiple contracts may be offered depending on demand.

When for instance a 120 day investment is up the saver will have a choice to either cash out or continue with new terms. Those terms being...

An additional 10,000 could be deposited, plus their interest rate would rise to 6%...

The idea of all this is to make a fun way to promote the coin and to reward savers and also as an extra incentive to mine and trade...

We are not rich by any stretch of the imagination but we think this could be a step towards decentralized banking! This will be a non profit organization. The only benefit we will see would be for an increase in price due to more interest for the coin.

So with that in mind we would really like some free help if at all possible, though of course lifetime advertising goes without saying.

If there are any question you have please ask. (I am sure you will!! )

EDIT:... Just to add that we will not be stopping with only infinite coin, if all goes well there is no reason why it can't be done for any coin. Plus I have lots more ideas to add to this. Smiley
4  Economy / Service Discussion / Beware of CRYPTSY on: June 23, 2013, 04:15:03 PM
Okay so I have just had a little run in with cryptsy and I am just putting it out there for you to decide!

Recently there was a statement on cryptsy saying

"Taking powercoin offline while I investigate a blockchain issue"

Then later this...

"It appears there was in fact a 51% attack on powercoin around the 15th/16th. The individual responsible came from a China IP address"

Now when I read this I wasn't overly concerened although I had a few PWC because 51% attacks have come and gone in the past with not too much upset. But a couple days alter I realized PWC was still not on the list and I got in the chatbox to ask admin about it.

To be honest bigjohn was pretty rude from the off, basically saying that I should know all about it and that they have spoken about it inside the chatbox! That is how they inform customers that their money is gone? In the chatbox? A chatbox that I do not use?

Eventually he did say that they will try to me clearer in the future and he also linked me to this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=239794.0

There were still no further announcements made regarding PWC and people were still in the chatbox asking where PWC was, so clearly I was not the only one who was a little miffed. These people got the same treatment as I... When surely a more detailed announcement would help, no?

Any way so I read that thread again and noticed on page 3 there was a very interesting turn of events! If you read comment #41 you will see a guy claiming to have looked into the matter and is saying there was NO attack! And then you will see NWO agreeing that there was indeed NO attack!

So I put that to big john and was banned for 1 hour for my trouble!

This stinks to high heaven! Are NWO and CRYPTSY in cahoots? Is it cryptsys mistake that they do not want to admit? I guess we can not have the answers to these as you will be banned for mentioning it! Dodgey... very dodgey!

So i have moved on from cryptsy anyway, and I just wanted to let everyone know too so you can make an informed decision as to where you trade...

If you love cryptsy fine, that is cool, just don't say you were not warned!

Edit: Off to cut my hedge now and will be back later on... Stay safe people Smiley
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What is up with the pools????? on: June 06, 2013, 01:13:38 PM
Have just been using dgcpool.com guys and I have been getting ripped off, I have been mining over 12 hours and only got 28 coins... I had the same problem with wemineltc... Something is very a miss! I have 1400+ kh/s

WTF is going on?

So pissed off with this!

Edit: just to add I thought it was a bit wrong so I noticed my coins and how many blocks were yet unconfirmed, came back and some blocks had confirmed but no change to my coins!
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How do I sell my XRP's? on: June 03, 2013, 11:36:03 AM
So I tried looking for a guide and to be honest it was over my head... It mentioned I have to open a gateway to bitstamp (a service I have never used) and then I got lost, lol...

So how do I get rid of these things? What are they even worth? I looked on the bitcoin charts and saw 6300/btc. Is that right? So I have 3000, that means they are worth nearly half a BTC? Is that for real?

I can't believe they are worth that much considering it was a 100% premine lol...

But hey if someone wants to give me that for them then I will happily accept! lmao...

I normally use vircurex to trade on (the small trading I do), can I use that as my "gateway"? To be honest the entire ripple concept seems very complicated and I don't fully understand it. I know they want to lick government boots and that is about it...

So who wants my coins? Or can someone instruct me how I can get rid via an exchange?

Much appreciated, thanks Smiley
7  Bitcoin / Mining support / cgminer is being funny... on: May 29, 2013, 10:03:05 PM
Okay so I just switched over from mining script (fancied a change) and cgminer for some reason keeps playing up... For 1 it is locking up a lot! Just freezing then the display driver crashes... Another issue is that when I try to change the clocks it won't let me do certain things... Like if say I adjusted the mem to 800 or 900 it just won't have it... I can go to 1000 or 1100 but when I go below this it auto adjusts it back to 1345 or something like that...

I must be doing something wrong Sad

I will add that today I flashed one of my cards as it was getting a fairly low hashrate. I have reinstalled drivers today too... It was acting up a little with script too but nowhere near as bad...

Anyway it is hard to know what is going on as I have made so many changes! lol...

Anyone fancy troubleshooting this one with me?

I even started with a fresh cgminer folder thinking that maybe something from my script mining was interferring... But that did nothing... I would normally use bitminter but it seems I can not go above 660 kh/s on that, no matter what I do...
8  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Little advice please... on: May 06, 2013, 09:44:14 PM
So I plan to add a second card to my PC, currrently I have a 7970 and I could go for another 7970 or I was thinking maybe the 7950... I would really prefer an overclocked 7950 which is about 260 with 4 games or the 7970 is 300 also with 4 games...

I know a lot will say gpu's are dead ect and yes I know about the asics, but still, which would you go for?
9  Other / Beginners & Help / Bitcoin transaction fees??? on: April 26, 2013, 05:17:52 PM
Okay so I'm not exactly new to the bitcoin world but I am new to having my own wallet etc (I used to trade a little bit for a while, more as a hobby) and I have since made a couple of transfers to a particular trading site.

The coins were mined as part of a pool...

Now for instance I just transferred 0.2 bitcoin and for the trouble I was asked to provide 0.01 as a transaction fee, I say asked but really I was forced else I wouldn't be able to send them.

0.01 roughly works out at near on a pound!! What is that all about??

Is there an option where I can lower this fee or stop it completely, I just feel that it is far too high for what I actually sent.

Or is this just the way it is?

Who decides this fee?

I know it goes into the blocks being mined and it helps the network etc but surely this fee is too high and I thought these bitcoin transactions were supposed to have no fees? Wasn't that one of the selling points?

Can someone just clear things up for me because I have tried to search about it and get conflicting information, cheers.
10  Other / Beginners & Help / Hello all, I have a proposition... on: January 04, 2013, 12:41:11 AM
So I suppose I should introduce myself, I'm barry and I live in the UK, hellooo...  Grin

There... Now, I have been lurking on the edges of the Bitcoin world for a couple years and I must say, I love it! As do most of you I'm sure. I have never mined (unfortunately) but I did a small bit of hobby trading with Britcoin and then Intersango when they changed over... It was good times to be honest, even if there was the occasional hiccup, but then the dreaded banks dropped the hammer!

What are we to do now in the UK? There is no easy, inexpensive way to move around funds/btc... There is the londonbitcoinexchange but that is rather pricey...

There is a giant void here that needs to be filled! I want to attempt to fill it... (with your help?)

Okay so how do we go about making trades and get the ball rolling? (I'm not talking about today here but more thinking out loud)... Obviously we want to avoid the banks as they cause far too many problems and eventually shut you down... So... What are our options?

Well for a start I was thinking via mail for deposits/buying bitcoins, would be one option, I know there are the obvious problems/risks associated with this, but that is where we are at right now and it is the cheapest option... The sender would obviously use precautions in their delivery method. The moment the funds have arrived the BTC will be deposited into the desired account. It is not ideal but an option non the less...

Then there is ukash and the like which to be honest I have little experience with but I'm sure it doesn't take a genius to figure out... But with this I presume it would be more expensive than mailing...

However, Withdrawals is where I could shine! Because I could deposit the funds directly into peoples bank accounts in person, there would have to be some sort of minimum limit on the withdrawal amount for obvious reasons. But I would deposit the same day (with a cut off time limit) and that is what we all want really isn't it?

For the service there would be a fee of course which can be worked out over time... Obviously I want this to be profitable for me but also inexpensive for you! I'm sure we can work this out...

I know there will be a ton of obstacles to overcome along the way but I really do want to be of service to the UK bitcoin community. So basically now I hand it over to you guys, do any of you have any suggestions or productive advice?

Thank You for taking the time to read my crazy (maybe?) idea...

barry
