I asked, noticed something here at the moment of touching the support line for this coin. No answer, no interest.

Probably we will see the next price support line (lower price level), and devs will maybe do something for this coin.  The sooner, the better for this coin.

I have problem with the version 13.2.x.  I can't both resync or sync the blockchain from the beginning.

So I am still using the old Litecoin version 10.4.

Bitcoin 13.2 works ok.

Anoybody has similar problems?

It seems devs used some of the rc candidates or some of the development versions of Bitcoin to make/update this Litecoin version 13.2 ? (not the last official Bitcoin version 13.2)

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What is being told to people in High Schools about Bitcoin on: December 24, 2016, 12:09:55 AM
Five days ago, a friend of mine studying Economics at High School had a discussion with its teacher, regarding Bitcoin, since I told her about that. Here's what the teacher said :

1. That's illegal : He did not bring many proves here, just saying that since it has not been regulated as a currency, we were in a grey area, and something in a grey area is rarely something that will become totally white from one day to another. He added that the sole purpose of that was to buy all kind of drugs over the Internet.

2. It will crash : He said that he had studied Bitcoin's price evolution throught the time (what I doubt) and said her that being so constantly rising was a sign that it was not a viable project. Its proof : manipulated prices of things like silver or wheat are very stable !

3. Anyone clear in its head wouldn't use it : First, he doesn't recognise any kind of manipulation of the money and the danger that there is for people keeping all their savings in fiat. I know that because I had him as a teacher too some times ago. So trying to explaining him about the fact that there is a clear war against cash and evident facts, like that that shows our money need to be converted into something viable to be protected from massive surveillance, is useless. Him not understanding that, since its the best argument I have, I couldn't have replied. When she told him about the speed of transactions, he replied "we have PayPal", so I said me that it wasn't worth to ever try explaining anything. As a final point, he said again that the sole real use that is making standing apart is that you can buy drugs on the Internet...

4. Bitcoin at a bigger scale would fail : I couldn't explain you much what he said because what she told me wasn't very clear so I personnally did not understood, as her I presume how confuse her explaination was. To summarize, he said that it's still a little market and that it will fail to scale and will go back to close to nothing in value.

I'd like to get your feelings on that. Just call the arguments 1, 2, 3 and 4 and tell me what you would have replied back and what it does inspire you !

Truth is somewhere between. Smiley

1. I agree with gray area. Soon more regulated very likely.

2. Of course bitcoin will crash, but after the crash it will reach new highs. Too much speculators on bitcoin to fail. Smiley

3. I agree with teacher. But, everybody enough crazy will try to speculate with bitcoin and clones or similar altcoins. Smiley

4. Of course bitcoin would fail as currency. But bitcoin will not fail as speculative playing game often considered as Ponzi cyclic game - just like any other speculative instruments. Smiley

Sooner or later banks will attack at full force meaning that they will ally with governments and put on a full ban on bitcoin, by then we must have a software that is censorship resistant, decentralized and ready os pread the nodes in countries where its legal and also illegal to run nodes but running them through masked networks like tor. We can't never give up no matter what, banks will never cooperate they will attack so be ready.

Extremely fast growing size of the blockchain is the biggest enemy of decentralization. Smiley

People will not use their own wallets mostly, and they will go to online wallets as easy "solution" which is too much risky. I am not sure in fully decentralized solution of such problem.

7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If you believe banks will work with Bitcoin, you're delusional on: December 23, 2016, 03:05:00 AM
Banks will never support Bitcoins, BUT, banks will in time develop their own cryptocurrencies.

Imagine Bank of England making it's own crypto currency, and BACKING it up with sterling pounds. Then you will see the bitcoin prize go to 0.

Bitcoin price will not go to the zero level because bitcoin has very big speculative value for Ponzi speculators.

8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If you believe banks will work with Bitcoin, you're delusional on: December 23, 2016, 02:58:11 AM

If they want and decide so, bank could always create its own modified version of the bitcoin - bank's  new altcoin (one of the similar thousands in the future).

No need to accept bitcoin with so huge blockchain or additional undesirable security risks (seen at the many exchanges or online wallets stealings) at all.

because it is limited , unlike fiat currency

The very best answer I think. Smiley

Other reasons include the speculative Ponzi games in which the most of the supporters believe and are trying to involve new believers, mostly. Smiley

10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How Many Millions of People Use Bitcoin? on: December 23, 2016, 02:01:16 AM

How many people with the positive btc balance downloaded/updated whole blockchain this month?

I think less than 10% from that ones with the positive balance.

11  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: I've read somewhere in 4 years the blockchain will be 700GB on: November 03, 2016, 11:41:41 AM
Let assume 10% growth of the blockchain monthly. Quite real assumption.

It means growth of 3x every year.

It means blockchain growth of 81x every 4 years.

Exponential low.

This may be somewhat slower or faster which depends on the real world acceptance of bitcoin.

I think bitcoin and other virtual coin will remain "good" communitiy experiment only. Tools for "playing" on the exchanges and creating very few very rich people - it depends on the "communities" again.

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How many Zcash coins actually exist? on: October 30, 2016, 02:52:33 AM
Zcash will have the same number of coins as BTC. Yet it traded at over 3000 BTC per Zcash.
At that price based on 21 million coins it would have a final market cap of $30 Trillion USD....

Is that right?

It depends on the part of the world you live in Smiley

"10% of the 21m coins to be issued are earmarked for founders, investors, employees and a putative Zcash foundation."

http://www.economist.com/news/finance-and-economics/21709329-another-crypto-currency-born-known-unknown

We know that trading started with the theoretical marketcap valuation of 10-20 folds bigger than BTC marketcap I doubt some of the initial owners of 10% coins will not sell at such attractive prices for selling.

Trading started at the theoretical valuation 10-20 folds higher than BTC marketcap.

Any comments to the next price direction?

250 MB is too much for the mix of source code, some dependencies and .exe. All of that is not necessary. We need clean goldcoin source only.

Remove subfolders:

BuildDeps
RunDeps


from github sources.



We have this: https://github.com/goldcoin/gldcoin/tree/barerepo

Is that okay? I think some people might want the dependencies and others not. This way we have both.


In that folder configuration files necessary for compiling are missing.

It seems it is impossible to compile the newest bitcoin develoment source from https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin

It was all ok before two weeks and earlier.

Any changes in the configuration files necessary?

Did anybody successfully compile bitcoin-v10 with Qt5.4.1 or Qt5.4.0 using mingw4.9.2 or mingw4.9.1 for Windows?

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Colossuscoin- 1.5.2 BIG, STRONG, and FRIENDLY on: February 16, 2015, 09:00:11 PM

It seems almost impossible to download whole blockchain no matter from where I start syncing (from the beginning, or from some of the downloaded blockchains).

I think Colossuscoin is by source code the closest related to the Bottlecaps coin and it should be updated on the same way as Bottlecaps is.

Otherwise, for many people including me it will not be possible to send coins and participate in Colossuscoin version 2.

Any solutions for this problem?
