1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: [XMR] Monero Speculation on: May 30, 2019, 10:56:11 AM
Over the past 24h Bitcoin went up about 1% , but everything else with 'Bitcoin' in the name has been pumping hard:

Bitcoin Cash: 6%
Bitcoin SV: 56%
Bitcoin Gold: 22%
Bitcoin Diamond: 53%
Lightning Bitcoin: 12%

In the meantime, Monero only went up 3%. What do all these 'Bitcoin something's offer that Bitcoin + Monero do not? How can the market be so out of touch with reality?

What is the current Monero DAG size? Any link to follow that info?

DAG size? You are thinking about Ethereum. Monero does not have a DAG.

The competition is not standing idle. I don't really see Grin as a serious threat to Monero, but I DO see Litecoin as one, since it has a better image, does not have the same issues with ASICS, ...

But it does, it's mined exclusively by ASICs.

I think no, because when you use a remote node you are allowing the remote daemon to select the other ring members for your tx, so a malicious remote node could determine your real tx output, and also link that to your IP if you weren't using a VPN or something. I think your best bet for privacy is to use your own daemon and broadcast the tx over Tor. (Disclaimer: I'm not a privacy geek and haven't actually done any of these things except use a remote node.)

Are ring members chosen by the daemon, not the wallet?

So what's with this rise in the last day or two? Some favorable news I've missed, or a bull trap?

@florida.haunted: don't freak out dude, Monero had ASICs before. They were told to fork off, and they did. Smiley
Monero survived.
Now, if they're back, they will receive the same message. And again. And again. Until they give up, or they run out of money to develop and run this much hashing power.

WE MUST propose mining algo more resistant to both ASICs and FPGAs.

There was a proposal from hyc for a revolutionary new algorithm, named RandomJS, that would work best on commodity CPUs. I haven't looked at it too deeply but the little that I saw I liked. Doing ASICs or FPGAs for it would be extremely hard and the results would most probably not be efficient.
I think the downside of RandomJS is that GPUs would be at a significant disadvantage, and there are lots of miners that have invested large sums into GPU rigs.
I don't know what the current status of RandomJS is, but you can contact hyc on reddit and ask him.

There has been major price movement recently in crypto and it seems to coincide with the increased network hashrate. Probably miners of other coins switched to Monero.

I'm mostly holding but also have a bot syphoning a little off the whales as the price grows and shrinks

Are you sure it's the whales you're syphoning from?

Any block explorers up to date? I see chainradar.com and moneroexplorer.com are not.

Kovri is essentially i2p rewritten in C++  
Are you saying I have to run Monero to run Kovri?

I don't think so. As far as I understand it, there will be a standalone Kovri client, but Monero will also have it included, so you don't have to download, run and keep updated two separate software packages.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [XMR] Monero - A secure, private, untraceable cryptocurrency on: September 04, 2018, 10:35:53 AM
Most nodes will run in dual mode with both Kovri and a regular IP. People who want can go full stealth (network monitoring can only tell that you are using i2p, not that you are running Monero or anything else through it) will be able to run only Kovri, but there are tradeoffs and most people don't need that. Also, anyone wanting full stealth probably currently probably uses at least a VPN and/or Tor, etc. and won't be on that map now. So the map won't change much.

I heard Kovri is forking from the I2P network and will only carry Monero traffic. So, identifying a Kovri user can tell a surveilling party that there's a high chance the user is running Monero, isn't it?

... monero grows when he wants and falls down when he wants...

Oh, so it's a he now?

You'll get a quicker answer in channel #monero or #monero-dev on freenode.

I'm not in that much of a hurry.  Smiley

What is the maximum number of characters a wallet password can have?

Is it set to 1024 on line 43 of src/common/password.h ? Am I looking in the right place? (sorry for the noob question. I don't know C++)

And those are ASCII characters right? No diacritics allowed I assume.

will we really get 10 xmv against 1 xmr?


Not only that, but you get compromised privacy on both chains too!
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [XMR] Monero - A secure, private, untraceable cryptocurrency on: February 28, 2018, 02:26:58 PM
hey i heard XMV is the real XMR   Grin

Yeah, it's thankfulfortoday's wet dream.

Anyone here tried the uquid card?

Doesn't look good. They didn't even bother to have a native English speaker proofread the website. And this is a British company, mind you.

Now that Ripple overtook Ethereum, what do you guys and gals think that means for the whole crypto space? Do you think we shall see Ripple at no.1 at some point? I want to hear your speculations.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: [XMR] Monero Speculation on: December 27, 2017, 02:24:16 PM
OK, my prediction for $777 is February 28th.

But why-oh-why is Bithumb $100 over every other exchange and still have more than a third of the volume?
