1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Forking coins to have demurrage, to stimulate exchange of these coins on: January 02, 2015, 01:33:39 AM
The problem with a lot of altcoins is the large supply, they have one new cool feature, eventually forked in all similar coins, but i have not yet seen demurrage forked into many coins.

It seems to me that reducing supply at an aggressive rate and then steady would motivate circulation of coins, and probably give a nice steady rise to them. This would work well for coins that are actually useful and used.

2  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] 6 BTC | NEW PRICE | 3xAntminer S1, 12x7950, 3>1200W PSU,4xMOBO, 4xCPU, RAM on: August 20, 2014, 07:05:29 PM

Preferred local (canada/montreal)

3  Economy / Marketplace / Group buy for the silkroad auction on: June 13, 2014, 12:33:20 AM
Would there be interest in this?

Right now the terms are:
Required Registration Items:
A manually signed pdf copy of the Bidder Registration Form
A copy of a Government-issued photo ID for the Bidder (or Control Person(s) of Bidder)
$200,000 USD deposit sent by wire transfer originating from a bank located within the United States (please provide receipt of transfer)

So that's a 67$ per coin deposit if these deposits are for bids per "block", before the bidding starts.
Of course it'll end up much higher...

Series   Bitcoins per Block   Blocks Available   Total Bitcoins Available in Series
A   3,000.00000000   9   27,000.00000000
B   2,656.51306529   1   2,656.51306529

edit: 67$ figure assuming the 200k/3k will be the starting price
edit2: apparently in foreclosure auctions in the states 10% of the valuation should be paid as refundable deposit, so 200k would mean a price valuation of 666$ for 3k blocks.
4  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / How much hashrate is going to be delivered over the next two months on: May 05, 2014, 09:59:51 PM
The latest hashrate estimate on bitcoinwisdom is: 57,527,772 GH/s
and: Estimated Next Difficulty:   8,624,181,349 (+7.79%)

on the increase for difficulty predicted is: " Next difficulty (estimate): 8,144,959,615 (+2%)"

This is less than half of what we've been getting bimonthly for the past 11 months, and first single digit increase in a year.

The difficulty predictions are estimates but the hashrate is not increasing nonetheless.

What high efficiency ASICs were to be delivered this month ?
next month?

This summer?

Is there anyone keeping an updated list of predictions in hashrate to be delivered? (perhaps by following the manufacturers posts?)

They may not be correlated, but how do you think this will affect the value of bitcoin? (more people will dump coins? or hold?)

9  Bitcoin / Mining / hosted mining service is a SCAM watchout on: January 05, 2014, 09:44:55 PM
I purchased the 1BTC service, it promises unrealistic returns (1150 GH/s) .

It's too good to be true.

Don't be fooled as i was. It's a scam.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [pre-ANN][SCC] Scamcoin - Scrypt based coin on: January 04, 2014, 10:31:54 PM
This is an pre-announcement for a new Scrypt coin, with the following specs and guarantees:

- no premine - FCFS, but devs have the good nodes and pools (because..)
- 21 000 000 coins
- closed source binary wallets filled with viruses and keyloggers (learn to protect yourself....)
- Because animal coins seem popular, probably to be renamed slothcoin and based on a sloth
- Arrogant team of developers (That seems to be popular with centralized premine coins)
- 2-3 hours delay after official launch for actual mining
- source may open up after a arguments ensue on the forum about this being a scam etc.

Premine may be used for bounties for logos and such.


no date set yet, coming week probably, i'm waiting to see if there's any interest.

-- careful what you mine

New feature ideas:
- Low security password logging pool available soon after launch
- Exchanges owned by the devs that mysteriously get hacked, claim they didn't use cold storage, disappear soon after.

I welcome all ideas to make this the scammiest coin ever, please suggest below.
11  Economy / Speculation / What if Zuckerberg is trying to get in on bitcoin? on: December 28, 2013, 12:06:22 AM

Why dump all these shares of his own company?

Buying billions of $ or more worth of bitcoins?

Maybe he's getting jealous of the Winklevoss twins, and wants to steal the fame yet again.
12  Bitcoin / Armory / Armory on OpenBSD on: November 27, 2013, 05:09:00 PM
Anyone tried it?

Some say there's no more security with it than with Debian but.. hey. I know it's more secure out of the box.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What is protoshare and what is the difference with bitshare on: November 18, 2013, 12:27:25 AM
I got asked a question about protoshare in PM, and decided i should share with everyone what i understand it to be.

neer.g's questions:

1. how do you acquire it

Presently i am mining protoshare, as well as buying it and trading it. the exchanges are:
I don't read chinese, but figured it out by clicking on the right sections, this site is ideal for selling protoshares as the price is slightly higher.

The bitshare forum:
there is a buy/sell section, careful and watchout for scammers, i was scammed on my first transaction!
Lighthouse and favedesu are good escrows. If you trust me i can be your escrow for free as well, but some might consider me n00b and no trust Tongue up to you to decide.
this is an exchange that looks extremely sketchy, but i've legit traded over 2 BTC on it. -- suggested by messycoin

2. do you think it will be as big as mastercoin in the near future?
It's giving out bounties and talking about mastercoin, but unlike mastercoin is building it's own blockchain. There were a few problems with that at the begining and too many coins were mined early on, so availability dropped pretty low. I think this had a positive effect on the price and since then it's doubled several times to up to 0.023BTC, right now it's dropped, but then again it's only 8:30 in China Wink

So yes, in the longer term i think this is a great coin, i really hope they work together with mastercoin to find a solution to a distributed market, as one of the things a lot of dev's complain about concerning mastercoin is that it's bloating bloating the blockchain, and the exodus address makes it centralized.

Protoshare is the prototype for bitshare i believe, and bitshare should launch in january, so if that is correct then this marketing strategy of doing a prelaunch could be very profitable to early investors Wink

Hope this helped
