this coin has a premine = no thanks.

I think this is one area where you really shouldn't listen to anyone else. There ain't too many neutral opinions when it comes to alts. Your own research will win out.

This. Picking crypto is basically like picking stock, except there's a lot less information to go by. I view alts as gambling rather than investments and I recommend you do the same. Only put up what you can lose (and I mean lose 100% of it) and enjoy the ride.

  • vertcoin
  • darkcoin
  • litecoin
  • pawncoin
  • Hirocoin

I missed the boat on VTC when it had the brand new algorithm or whatever it was so I haven't been following it, but their devs seem talented so maybe worth checking out.
LTC is always a good bet. It has the history other coins don't. I wouldn't trade these, I just have a few I'm holding for a rainy day.
I don't like pawncoin. Getting cash in hand is the purpose of pawn shops. Until crypto closes in on being as widely accepted as fiat, pawncoin isn't doing much for anyone.

The others I don't know enough about to have an educated opinion.

I like the USD/altcoin stuff. Hope they add lots more.

Well why not mine DOGE and destroy coins?  Grin

I don't mine coins. I'm an investor. I'm not keen to enter to hashing arms race, though I may build a scrypt miner for altcoins eventually.

90,000 DOGE for $100. So this is real? I honestly feel like this

The more insane part, I am starting a new venture, I am actually thinking of accepting dogecoins. What is going on!

DOGE: A Case Study

1) Create coin that has zero innovation but panders to an untapped market (reddit)
2) Redditors buy/mine the everloving crap out of this flavor of the week coin
3) Redditors get stuck bagholding
4) Redditors use their immense volume to pump/promote this shit coin
5) Coin becomes mainstream
6) Coin doesn't die like normal memes because of the Redditors holding
7) Newcomers continue the whole bagholding/pumping/promotion cycle until the coin's ultimate death

I love what DOGE did to introduce so many new people to crypto. I hate DOGE because it lacks innovation. If it didn't, it might survive the inevitable altcoin genocide that most people think will happen to all the copy-coins. Ultimately, this will burn a lot of bagholders and leave a bad taste in the mouth of thousands, if not millions, of people in terms of crypto and turn them completely off of it. I refuse to support DOGE because it is overall bad for crypto.

Network change to prevent POS->POW block orphan issue is taking effect sometime around 2/10 for YAC. So, I am going to say YACoin. If not, it should be  Wink

YAC isn't even a year old, though...

500 btc is not a big pump...
Half a million dollars into a low activity coin is a market maker, so I have to disagree. However, OP doesn't have the greatest reputation so I'd be wary to believing any claims he has.

I suppose that's true. Anyway, my guess would be NMC.

Something came up and I can't make these trades until I get home in a few hours. If you find others to buy your coins, feel free. If not, I'll be buying when I get home!

Offering 25 satoshis. Looking to buy around 1M-1.5M.

Open to offers.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Pre-Mining for success? on: February 03, 2014, 07:32:50 PM
put all your premine in the genesis block and distribute it however you wish. I think that's the way to do it since I'm pretty sure what you're describing is instamine...
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / Re: PUMP AND DUMP opportunity! DOGEcoin from BTC! on: January 22, 2014, 08:13:51 AM
I'm almost positive that is exactly what has already happened.

This coin is shit and anyone who says otherwise is new, stupid, a shill or some combination.

I hope to god the rest of you are only interested in this so you can dump it on the first exchange it appears on so this coin will die.

But let's get on some exchanges first!

Just in case people didn't know, you can go to Cryptsy and open a support ticket requesting a new coin to be added. They just close the ticket once they get it, but I'm pretty sure they choose which one to add next based on volume!

Here's my rep thread! If for some stupid reason I didn't give my address it's 1FMVvr9BbQNbNLiV5ZWAAshm5XUk9KYvWz.

They did the launch right, and pretty much what everyone has already said about branding and transparency. I like it as a short term thing, though I'll probably hold a smaller amount for a while like I do with most coins...
