I don't understand why would you choose the default port to be value below 1024 which means you cannot run this on unix system without super user privileges.

Even when I change the port in the config file, it still tries to bind to 999 so the server crashes.

If the banks choose proper dencentralized crypto to do this, I don't see anything wrong with that, it would add transparency and make crypto legitimate in the eyes of "Joe Sixpack".

Problem is, that's probably not going to happen, as transparency and decentralization is not something they're really after (as we can see with "permissioned ledgers").

Remember the early days of NXT on Bitcointalk? So many technical, complex issues discussed by the community and hardly anyone talking about price. It's an amazing piece of work. I thought IOTA would be like that, but a lot of people here are too interested in a quick ROI for having done nothing but participate in the sale.

I do remember, this is because of the way the devs decided to communicate with us, using closed community chat (Ryver), nothing I'm interested in.

I'm ready to help, to run multiple nodes, but I want publicly accessible information to development status, open discussion and signed releases, when this happens I will gladly participate.

I'm fine with postponing the release if it means that the platform will be better, anyone who ever developed something will understand that.
As for the decision how the accounts should work - I'd say go with what's more secure.

@Anotheranonlol, great summary of the current state, it's refreshing to see something insightful here for once.

@letsplay, I think there are quite a few projects worth watching (hint: they are not bitcoin clones), just don't expect crazy returns in short time, this whole thing now depends on success of Bitcoin itself and will take a while.

Crowdfunding in completely transparent and decentralized way? Sounds like a great use case to me, more ideas will come, I'm sure.

I don't really understand the PoW minting inside PoS currency, but hey, old habits die hard I guess.

I don't understand why he is calling you a "Nxt shill" when you are promoting jl777's project which has nothing to do with Nxt itself.

Other than that, I'm not surprised by his reaction, your posts are completely stupid.

Nice copy of Nxt thread layout. Let's see what more is new in Peercoin universe.

I'm also interested since so many people here seems to believe him, pumping coins he wants and now there is his IPO for a project that's highly questionable idea in itself, while he is claiming it will be the "second largest IPO after ethereum" and staying completely anonymous. I doubt Ethereum would get anywhere near the sum they're at now if the people behind it were anonymous "simple programmers".

Today we have a guy quoting two of the the most retarded people (spoetnik, CfA) on this forum as a proof of something, you have to wonder, what's going to come tomorrow?
We need more confirmed news, right?  Wink

So, I just found this, interesting.

You are doing the same exact thing as Nxt (most of the functions are exactly the same), but improved where it was suggested (Ed25519, address handling, built-in gui, alias transfer...) while claiming you don't know much about Nxt, ok, that's fine...
But you also make the distribution (IPO) the exact same way as Nxt, which is for most people the biggest (and only) problem with it, so it will end up the same, everyone will be butthurt about not being "initial stakeholder" and calling a scam. If you are trying to improve something, why not also use a different type of distribution which is a big problem with pure PoS? I just don't understand this.

What's also not clear to me, is why the IPO ended a long time before the release? If you want to go the way of IPO, make it so it at least seems fair. I'd suggest go completely other way - as suggested, rewards for running nodes etc., maybe just partial IPO to fund the development, but this seems like an interesting project that will probably end up hated the same way as Nxt (probably even more since you had the option to avoid it).

This. And actually 0.00175 is max price. So it is actually less. I cant understand why we need to consider max coins 8 years before we reach max coins.

We don't, all other market capitalization numbers are based on available supply. So yeah, we're at about $300k now.

Compiled ok on 14.04 with Boost 1.55.

Does not make sense that this file would be missing:

-- Looking for include file pthread.h - not found

Does it exist on your system? It should be in /usr/include/pthread.h

Yes, it's there.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][MRO] Monero - Anonymous Currency Based on Ring Signatures - CPU only on: May 03, 2014, 11:28:00 AM
I'm not sure what you are missing. Did you install build-essential and boost-all-dev?

Yep, build-essential and libboost-all-dev are there. Tried also the older(?) repo at, same problem.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][MRO] Monero - Anonymous Currency Based on Ring Signatures - CPU only on: May 03, 2014, 09:17:02 AM
For some reason I'm not able to compile latest source on fresh VM with ubuntu 13.10.

Any hints?

Asset Exchange?everyone is waiting for it?

It's already working on testnet. Give it a try!
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [NXT] Nxt - Official Thread on: April 27, 2014, 09:16:47 PM
This is so amazing, I will definitely get myself some NXT for sure. Fantastic project, keep it up guys!

This is the reason why an active thread here is needed, this forum is the place where people go to look for alternatives to Bitcoin, GJ on the main post btw.

Refactoring resin webserver for use with encrypted objects. It outperforms C based engines by a nontrivial margin.

I'm going to need beta testers in about a week  Smiley.

I'm very interested in your work, count me in.
