82  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Dying coins on: August 01, 2013, 02:57:03 PM
We all know there are a few coins that are dying out because the devs bailed out with the premine parachute. I was talking to a few guys and they suggested that devs of current coins like Franko, FST, DGC etc take over the dev of these coins and help get them actuall profitable again. What is your opinion?

Main News

After yesterday's surprise launch of orb coin, The Editor is not surprised to see what a abysmal coin ORB turned out to be. With a sneaky launch and a massive premine that totals 4 years worth of coin, it was doomed from the beginning. I downloaded the source and compiled it myself, only to get no connections. I dub this Failcoin of the week.

In what has been considered the final nail in the Nugget coffin...user hotcoldcoin posted a sell order on the forum for nearly a million NUG @ 0.01 btc, if this is any indication as to their worth then it is safe to surmise that the coin is dead.

The attempted Scrypt Asic scam continues to entertain users as the site uploaded even more ludicrous images. An image of a dual cpu board was uploaded and metioned as part of the machine's build. I leave it to the community to boo these guys into oblivion.

Business News

The "Toilet Run" that alt-coins experience this weeks has seen a slight slow down for some coins, others...well, they are in the septic tank. I doubt we'll be seeing any major pumping of the existing currencies.

The recent rise in the BTC price has seen enthusiasts rubbing altcoin users face in it, this is mainly due to a war of words that has been rising between early adopters and fanatics versus the new guys and alt enthusiasts.

Sports


Not much to report here except the knock-out puch Vlad2vlad received after a sell offer was made to sell a million of his shitcoin at 0.01 btc.


Weather


The weather is calm and will hopefully continue so unless we have another sneak launch and/or J-coin releases today.


Trends

The recent multi-mine shindig has seen difficulties rising rapidly as these pools can point +200mh at any coin in their site, their popularity is rising and devs are panicking trying to modify their coins to be able to deter this phenomenon.

Drama and Entertainment

Anonymous rumor has it that BCX will attempt an alt coin first, to kill three alt coins simultaneously. Targets have yet to be announced. If you are holding low hash coins... watch out.

Main News

Accusations have been running wild about a possible instamine at the launch of Worldcoin, the outrage by junior members who seem to have joined the community 2 months late has perplexed users of the coin.

User r3wt has witten a long apology letter to the community over the recent Gascoin scandal in which he apparently hid a premine and the delivered a faulty product...r3wt you villian. However some have rejoiced at the fact that this may discourage mos of the new comers hoping to make a quick buck.

In a record breaking discovery....I have not noticed any new Launches today, could the storm finally be over?

Business News

Coinwarz has been causing miner confusion today as it has been reporting incorrect prices for cryptsy traded coins. User root1484 @ cryptsy was the first to notice.

The downward spiral of Alts has continued with many bag holders lamenting the high rates at which they bought coins, anticipating exactly what ...we do not know.

Recently Erundook has opened his new trading platform to open beta, again user root1484 was first on the scene. We'll be keeping you informed on user ratings.

Sports News

The war between IGotspots and Vlad2vlad has simmered down of late as most  have taken their focus to the Gascoin incident, this has left forum users bored, holding popcorn with nothing to watch.

Trending

Recent rumors have suggested that Shitcoin devs have resorted to launching their coins on little known sites to enable "in the know" premines. Earlier today I heard of a ORB coin but a search of the forum yielded no results. Could this be becoming a trend?

A recent posting of a supposed scrypt ASIC has left members either dumbfounded or hysterically laughing at the very poorly attempted scam, the User uploaded a link to a site. The images there show a coolermaster case and claimed these specs 500 Watt PSU pushing 50,000 Kh/s avg

Weather Report

Today we enjoyed sunny weather with no downpours of shitcoins, miners and traders were seen in chat boxes and generally having a good time.  Tommorrows forecast looks bleak as scammers will be taking advantage of the void.


  
85  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / New Discussion on Crypto future on: July 30, 2013, 07:34:41 PM
The advent of new mining tech has lowered cost and increased efficiency. I'd like to start discussing the development of cryptos that can be generated by anyone without need of a GPU or Asic. My eventual goal is to develop a method that works from a pc and has similar efficiency to perhaps a mobile device. I've want to develop a method of coin generation that is not really hardware dependent yet also not too inconvenient.

Games have been suggested but i think games take too much attention. Browser based mining has shown to be inefficient and vulnerable. The system should also try to encourage anonymity.  By developing new coin generation methods that have new "proof" ideals...with a view towards easy widespread adoption and eco-friendliness via use of minimal resources, I'm hoping to build a system that can be quickly adopted into everyday use.

I've had a few small Q n As with people but i'd like to hear what the community thinks of such an idea.

Main News it's boring though, not much happened  Sad

Following yesterdays' abysmal launch Neo8 had the following to say.


Please to consider that this was a beta version, it's why the source was not available. Some miners have exploited a bug to get +50% of all coins, We can't continue to support this.

Neocoin will be relaunched without bug, fairer, without partners premine with a new website. The binaries and the source code will be really available at the same time. The starting difficulty will be higher. When the source code will be online, we won't change anymore, the genesis block will be definitive.

We won't stop this project, this coin is new (without copy/paste). We take lessons, everything was not perfect but we are convinced that Neocoin is the most advanced coin on the market and brings new things.

We will inform you as soon as possible.

Thanks for your support.

Neocoin.org

He/ "They" seem to keep repeating the  "without copy/paste" yet the Qt is reported to be version "Satoshi". We'll leave it to the readers imagination to figure out what scam *cough* is going on.


Conspiracy stories are the theme of the day apparently as fear of the US Governent continues to escalate.

Quote from: Hippie Tech link=topic=256460.msg2814648#msg2814648

What in the world makes you think BTC is decentralized ?

Ever since this..  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6652.0 .. BTC has become a banker's cashless society wet dream.

What we have today is NOT what Mr. Nakamoto intended.

HT xD


Oh yeah, and after that the protocol was changed in a subtle way that no programmer reviewing it could actually see the change but now ALL YOUR BITCOIN ARE BELONG TO CIA. Now I see how naïve I am, thank you.

Bitcoin is decentralised exactly because even if the CIA implants an alien on Gavin so that he starts to write code making Bitcoin centralised, a decentralised fork will appear and there still will be good ol’ Bitcoin around.

They will PASS a special executive order and make a hard fork that gives all control of Bitcoin to the government. It is INEVITABLE. Then Bitcoin belongs to the government!!

But seriously, I fail to see how Bitcoin, a decentralized, pseudonymous currency is a banker's/government's wet dream, when they already have KYC, debit cards, and credit cards, which offers more tracking and raw control than Bitcoin ever could. With those, your spending can be tracked, your accounts can be frozen and even stolen from.

 The "Snowden Affair" seems to have woken fears all across the globe....somewhere in the NSA...there is a record of all the porn you have watched.  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Financial News


The downward spiral continues as traders spread their wealth over the new altcoins on Cryptsy. Coins-e seems to be gobbling up any new coin to surface as they try to gain a foothold in the trading market place.

LTC price has been steadily dropping as miners and traders are becoming more apprehensive. The initial hype after the announcement raised the price but recent events "dumping" have seen the price lowering.

Rumors of a pre-emptive CIA dump have been floating around as the reason for bitcoin price vis a vi USD instability. This has raised more concerns from the conspiracy crowd.

Sports news

The NUG vs Spots war is getting heated as angry adopters who wasted *cough* their hash power on it retaliate.


There's been 3 exact clones of NUGGETS so far

No there hasn't.  There has been one and only one.  Since you are mentally challenged people played pranks on your by linking to threads of coins launched months (and in one case a year) before NUG saying "look another one copied you".

You do realize that posts have timestamsp and you can verify yourself that the coins which "copied you" launched before your copycat scamcoin.  

BTW at current Bid the valuation of all NUGs in circulation is ~1 BTC.   99% of that is the premine and thus not earned by miners.  Quite the "miner's coin".

Users are also begining to ask questions about the promises made buy recent shitclones. The "vague" promise line has become common since the launch of the bitgem scam.

So what's this whole "related to precious metals" thing going to look like? Are you setting up an exchange site that will only trade between Spots and metals?

Special-purpose currencies have always confused me. I can understand there being some direct link with, say, silver if someone is holding on to a lot of silver and will trade for Spots at a given price. But I don't understand how that can in any way be built in to the currency without centralizing it.

I'm not trying to criticize, I have just heard a lot of vague talk—vague talk that I like the sound of, mind you. I'd just like to hear more specifics.

Weather report

Today seems cloudy, due to the recent unsuccessful launches we predict a minor storm of "copy-paste-shit-clone-rain" as "devs" try to flll the gap. This merciless bombarding that has brought wallet stealers and left bag holders is continuing....only the fit will survive this "Coinpocalypse"

Bitcoin fan boys, please stop spamming us about how great bitcoin is. it really is not, it's insanely difficult to get and only the elites "early adopter + asic" can gain anything from it. Also it's ridiculously slow and the tx fees are insane, it has failed to live up to expectations. iknow you have holdings in it, which is why you try push us there....but the truth is, it is dying and very unstable, please look at the solid showings some altcoins have. WE ARE NOT DUMB, we see quite clearly that bitcoin was the concept...now we are developing the improvents. So take your archaic shit the **** away. See yourselves squabbling when one of you dumps his insane thousands of btc and instead moves to alts... we see you too fanboys...and you look ridiculous.

91  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Final call on: July 17, 2013, 05:05:14 PM
ANT release is in 24 hours, package is completed. Please place your final votes, structure has been decided as groups of 5 for buy-ins.

The first group has 2 million ANT dedicated , the second has 1 million, 3rd 500k, 4th 250 and the last 125k .

These dedics are based on TOTAL COIN CAP, many devs made obscene premines which make it hard to determine who has what and some people expressed ideas of wishing to mine more so as to have a "foot in".  This doesnt not change the value of your holdings.

Example: ANT group one "coin A" has cap of 10 mil, it alone has 400k dedicated coins. Ergo price of one ANT is 25 coin A.  Same logic applies to all groups of coins.

Your votes still count please have your say. Questions are welcome.

94  Other / Politics & Society / Data Spying on: July 12, 2013, 08:34:23 AM
I was part of a discussion earlier and a question was raised. Considering all the information companies are sharing with governments, could it be possible that media players that connect to the internet for data, are not only getting information, but are sending it out? For example if you allow WM11 to connect to the net to get track info, it could send a list of songs you have, which is then saved for later use, either for marketing purposes or more sinister invasions of privacy? Also, could that be used as a consensual conduit for companies to gather information on your habits, preferences and activities?

The Death of Humanity



Prologue

Hmmm... where to begin... I guess the beginning will suffice.

The year was 2030, technology was in yet another boom, smartphones that had once been the very edge of communication had become obsolete. The only company to survive the wash was a small Russian firm that had been working on experimental human implants. They had developed a series of small implants that humans could use as a smartphone immbeded on their napes, fingertips, ears and eyes. People no longer fussed about about download speeds, companies had developed what they refered to as NXG streaming. The speed was so outrageously high most content was streamed in 5D, the advent of these technologies had brought in much innovation, but many of the familiar sights in the cities had died off. Taking a loved one to watch the movies was a thing of the past, the old movie houses had finally been beaten. Some had tried to go into opera, but that had died an even faster death.

Unfortunately fossil fuels still held a large portion of our energy requirements, clean energy as a mainstay was still a pipe dream. Many ideas had been put forward but none had really yeilded fruit, some blamed funding issues and some blamed big oil companies. In one case a man was reported to have successfully driven his home-made water powered vehicle across Kenya, but that story dissappeared from the news cycles very quickly.

The youth were running the world now, in varying capacities men and women between the ages of 19 and 40 had become the most powerful people on the planet. The balance of power had shifted across continents in ways unforeseen. In Europe many economies had succumbed to recession and civil wars broke out, the wars were quick and very decisive, most governments were toppled and new leaders were chosen. The systems of communism and capitalism had failed separately, but a wave of scholars led by a German, Edward Weiss , had begun lecturing and promoting a blend of the two that gained the name "Weissisim". It spread like a plague, and during the "shift wars" as we began to call them, many countries re-drew their borders, some split up, but for the most part many became united. During all this scuffling my own country was saved from war but we suffered, there was hunger and disease at an unprecedented level. My father compared the horrors to that of when we were called the Soviet Union. He said that he was lucky to survive the first one, and lessons learnt during that time had driven him to the pinnacle of society.

In America democracy still held it's ground firmly, they had all watched in dismay as Europe evolved into a new beast, the new leaders did not respect or fear the might of the Americans. As Michelle Card became the first female president she had tried to co-erce some of the nations to stick to democracy, with almost catastrophic results, John Snow of England and Pierre Lucard of France had nearly declared war before the Americans' hasty retreat. Emboldened by the moves of Europeans, Asian countries saw changes in their own political systems, a coup in China and N.Korea saw full democracy being implemented there, much to the relief of Americans.

However their relief was short lived, seems the world always needs a twist. In an act of vengeance a scientist and a soldier in Pakistan shot an experimental thermobaric missile into the center of the American embassy killing nearly 200 people in an instant. American reproach was swift and very loud, as apologetic as the Pakistani's were, the war machine in America saw an opportunity and the rhetoric began to escalate. In yet another weird twist of fate, the President of India and the President of Pakistan were distantly related, seeing possible war and not wanting a foreign military presence in the region, talks began about forming alliances.

After the demise of the old guard, a new breed of African leaders had risen, with radical ideas and hopes of becoming powerful. One man stood out though, out of the ashes of his burnt out country he had led a revolution, Kagame Mutumwa, a Zimbabwean Army Chief, youngest in the world took the country in hours and had placed himself at the top. Using strict military conduct he had forged a new path, he envisioned his country as the America of Africa. In his first year he managed to form a federation of most of the Southern African nations. By the time western countries realized what he had done, their input was of little consequence. In a show of good will, he made visits to the United States, France, Germany and Russia. That was the first time i saw him and spoke with him. I was young then and my job as the President's son was to smile and wave while holding mothers' hand. Kagame was a man then and everyone loved him. As for my young mind, all i could think of was taking his son and daughter around the estate and show them around. My English was flawless though tinted by my Russian decent, i welcomed any chance i could get to speak the language of my nanny.


My name is Nikita Petrovich Zhelezkin, and this is the story of Kagame, the man who killed Humanity.
