Hey,

Is Stratis similar to XEM/NEM in terms of staking?

I can keep coins on my wallet (offline) and get annual fee's?

If so, how much minimum coins needed?

You can stake STRATIS by keeping your coins in your QT wallet,but you need to keep the wallet online to stake. The PoS rate is 1%/year. Good luck!
I don't know where you're getting the 1% inflation rate but I don't believe that's true. The rewards are 1 STRAT per block, with each block produced every 1 minute on an average. Based on the current supply, this gives a less than 1% inflation rate for PoS.

No, the price was 0.01eth and the price on exchanges are over 0.011. Either way you can always sell your bnt to the ether contract and recover 0.01eth/BNT. The price ref was eth not bitcoin not dollar.

Bancor is traded against BTC. when you open Bittrex you see BTC/BNT which is 0.00130. That's under ICO price.
ETH/BTC was 0.14 at that time. Now if you want to buy Bancor you can pay 0.001 BTC cheaper and get it. BTC is all that matters for me.

They have benchmarked Bancor against ETH. So if ETH keeps going down against BTC, naturally Bancor will fall too. Yes, compared to BTC, we are below ICO price now.
There's really no one answer to what Bancor price should be benchmarked against. This is a similar conundrum with many ETH-based token sales of late. It seems many investors are longer-time ETH holders, so the alternative to their ICO investments is just to hold on to ETH. On the other hand, many exchanges base prices on BTC, so that's a pretty good reference. Finally, many view prices in USD terms especially when talking about amounts raised, market cap, etc. So you have these three benchmarks - ETH, BTC, and USD. Each investor should determine his/her own benchmark as the best use of funds in the absence of this investment, i.e. if you hadn't invested in Bancor, in what currency would your money be in?

Well, I wrote a piece for Hacked.com before the ICO and said all you were getting for your money was 40 odd lines of code nothing more and not even a high-level code.I don't own any and never will so I will not spend time on this thread putting it down or rehashing the article but anybody that has any sense will see through this debacle straight away.
Irrespective of how good or bad an idea this is, it is shoddy to judge its value based on number of lines of Solidity code in the smart contract.

This is a very difficult problem. On the one hand, of course you want everything decentralized and out of the founding team's hands. On the other, if shit hits the fan, you're looking to the founding/dev team to fix things. I can see it being a tough spot for the team. But more communication on this matter would definitely be appreciated - what's the longer term plan for removing these controls, etc.

Kraken has officially reached 0.001
IMPRESSIVE

And it does not stop there. Next stop .002

Only 200 btc to .0038 btc = $9,51!




Iconomi have any updates coming in near future?

YESSSSS! Have a look at this!

https://www.reddit.com/r/ICONOMI/comments/6h3h4t/iconomi_will_publicly_launch_on_august_1st/


Does it means if someone buy 200 btc worth of icn,icn price will be $9?Sorry I do not understand how this exchange thing work
It's a little more complicated than that because new sell orders will come to the market if the price rapidly rises but for a thin order book, this is approximately how it will be. What they are saying is, based on the current order book on the exchanges, if you buy 200 BTC worth of ICN, the price will move up to around $9 because that 200 BTC will eat up all the sell orders (again, currently on the books) for ICN.

Lol everyone eager to dump their BNT for profits. I see no exchange will add BNT. You guys will need to use the smart contract to liquidate your coins at 0.01 ETH

Actually, a fair price of 1 BNT is 0.001 ETH, and once it hits exchanges, the market will bring it down there.

can you give us more ideea why we should wait and buy cheaper? i missed the ico ... and i need to buy bancor cheap .cheers

It is very simple: each BNT is backed by nothing but 0.001 ETH. This is how much it costs. The market will converge to this price.

How did you arrive at that number? 100 BNT were issued for every 1 ETH, with a reserve of 20%

ICN has significantly underperformed ETH since its ICO though. You can check that here: https://icostats.com/vs-eth
The point is not that ICN hasn't done well, but when compared to the alternative for many people, which is just hold ETH instead, it has significantly underperformed.

The ICO prices for a lot of the assets on this site are way off.

I messaged the owner about it, and he said he is working on auditing/correcting the prices.

Some of them like DGD or ANS are listed at +100% or -50% what the actual ico prices were, based on BTC and ETH prices on date ico closed.

Iconomi (ICN)
https://medium.com/iconominet/iconomi-ico-token-share-calculation-finalised-9747e69d496d
10,682,516.42 USD equivalent raised for 87m ICN issued = $0.122787545 --> site has it listed as $0.13

converting to other currencies using the weighted average exchange rates from the blog post:
0.122787545 USD 605.893 USD/BTC = 0.000202655 BTC --> site has it listed as 0.00025445 BTC
0.122787545 USD 13.1603 USD/BTC = 0.009330148 ETH --> site has it listed as 0.0118 ETH
That doesn't change the overall trend, does it? I am long ICN btw, it's just that investors need to see the full picture, and not parrot that their favorite coin is going to the moon and blah blah.

I  joined bancor  signature campaign,  but  forget where to check my   bounty.  Can somebody help me  ?
U can check on their website
Here : https://app.bancor.network/communities/59072a4f98c9cb000161fee9
thank  you  very much ,  I  got some   BNCHDL  tokens ,  does  1 BNCHDL=1 BNT  ?   when  can we  withdraw  our  bounty    ?
No, the conversion depends on the total supply of the BNT tokens (they are reserved at CRR=100%) so that the entire supply of BNCHDL is 0.2% of the total BNT supply at the ICO.

Bancor says if you're using MEW to access your wallet to send ether via "Keystore File". Would just using my private key be acceptable--rather use that than risk losing my USB at work. However I don't want to screw things up. If they say use "Keystore File" does that mean a transaction wouldn't go through if I used my private key instead?
No it does't mean that. Using the keystore file is, in general, more secure than copy-pasting your private key because you don't need to store your private keys in clipboard memory where it is accessible to other programs. However, as long as MEW is able to see your private key, either via the keystore file or via copy-pasting your private key, it can create and broadcast a transaction for you. In terms of the actual transmission of the transaction, it doesn't matter what type of signing you use, as long as the signature is valid, i.e. as long as either the keystore file or the private key are valid.

Predicting the market is hard. Predicting the crypto markets is well neigh impossible. In that case, just focus on the steady improvement/development of the platform. What is Stratis planning to do that will give it value beyond speculation? Think business partnerships and sidechains. That's what will signal adoption. Non-speculative price component will follow that adoption.

did they publish the burn address? if not, why?
I think it's scheduled to be announced in the Q2 report, so expect something near the end of this month to beginning of next month.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Bancor | Protocol for Smart-tokens, solving the liquidity problem on: June 11, 2017, 09:48:15 PM
I have never participated in something like this. How does this exactly work? I would just send them the eth and then what? How do I receive what I've paid for? I'll probably give this a try with a few euros to learn how something like this works, not sure yet if I should do a more important investment, specially being a noob, but I would like to know the basics because even if it's just a small amount I would rather not lose it. XD

Would they automatically send me the BNTs to my MEW account or do I need to do something else besides sending the eth to their address or what? Sorry if I'm making the dumbest questions on this site's history, I repeat that I'm just trying to learn how these things work.  Cheesy

If I send a couple of bucks worth of ether, will I own a yatch in the following months? Grin
You just need to send ETH from a wallet that you control, i.e. you're in possession of the private keys. Something like MEW works. Don't send from any exchanges, because you don't hold the private keys to the wallet.

BNT is an ERC20 token, which will add your address in the list of addresses if you send during the right window, based on the execution of the token sale smart contract. So you really don't need to do anything else. Your address will automatically get the appropriate amount of BNT.

It is very unlikely that if you send a couple of bucks worth of ether, you'll be able to own a yatch in the following months.

Official Bancor recommends 200k gas for your ico transacation. Is there a possibility that this ico "breaks" the ethereum blockchain for that hour and we have to guess at the best gas amount for our transaction to verify? The BAT ico was over in seconds and the max transaction cost that someone paid was 6k usd as Buterin mentioned: http://vitalik.ca/general/2017/06/09/sales.html

Someone mentioned gas caps on Bancor ICO, but can someone verify that?
It is possible that this ICO will cause a significant delay for regular ETH transactions just like BAT did, but that's the cost of participating in these ICOs. I suspect with all the scaling solutions in the pipeline for Ethereum, these will be less of a concern moving forward.

No offence, but how do you reach that conclusion? I'm a glass half-full kind of guy but this kind of hyperbole doesn't do anyone any favours Shocked
Didn't you get the memo? You're not supposed to question outrageously outlandish price predictions in this thread Wink

I think business blockchains have good future, so if Stratis will develop as good as now it will be worth  fortune.
So it is good to use every price drop to buy Stratis token. Mark my works.
A future potential catalyst would be a real business, well-known to people, using Stratis as a sidechain. That would definitely be interesting news to the community and especially to the markets.

I need not to mention that I am an ICN fan but comparing it with ETH is too much.Eth has a different platform.It has real world use.
They are very different crypto-assets with very different properties and economics. It's foolish to try to compare them head-on from a return perspective. ICN is, by nature, a crypto with economics tied to investment decisions made by a team, and they have proven to have done a fairly good job so far with their investments. ICN should grow as the space grows and evolves.

Some very informative discussion here: https://twitter.com/el33th4xor/status/873523915578118144
That's some serious conversation, sadly taking place on a 140-char limit medium. Sigh.
