21  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: XSPEC SCAM on: January 23, 2018, 12:45:13 AM
Ok.

I've seen people saying this constandly on this forum.

Let me say this;

Xspec is a gamble, HIGH profit or HIGH lose.

Invest what you can lose, stop the fight over this coin, nobody knows the future of this coin. Invest or don't.

I agree that invest in crypto  is a gamble but XSPEC not scam it is good project, for this moment have working wallet and soon will be release ver wallet version.


XSPEC is

 - Automatically Adjusted Ring Signatures - Stealth Addresses - Fast PoSv3 60 sec transactions - Innovative first ever in Crypto 'Stealth Staking'

Cant understand where people see scam ?

I really don't get why people repeat this nonsense (no offense) crypto == gamble. Let me tell you. Opening a restaurant, or a kindergarden, that is a gamble, yet no one is calling it like that. As I see it gamble is 99,9999% chance you lose, restarurant 80% against you, crypto 80% in your favor at the moment. As long as one is not greedy, invests in things which seem to make sense (real projects with real features, for example XSPEC.) and one is not in a hurry, things should work well.

I bought most of my xspec at 0.4$, but last time I did pay approx. 3.9$. To people who bought at ATH, be patient. This coin should achive much more. It is unique and privacy focused coin which helps people to solve real life issues. It didn't have marketing, as it is small community project with project leader/developer focused on the tech, it has a couple of capable developers (Jansen is almost always available on slack, and everyone can talk to him, ask him for help, or test his knowledge if you like.), and community has already made first right steps in right direction regarding marketing. Some members made some bad moves, promoting the coin in a  inappropriate way, but people should know the project leader never acknowledged these methods, shilling or any other of aggressive methods typical for scam projects.

I mostly use LTC to deposit/withdraw money, and to transfer value between exchanges. Faster and cheaper than BTC, and I can often use it to buy altcoins (For example cryptopia has nice LTC markets for more than a few altcoins.). Charly announced lower fees for LTC, so even after BTC starts with lightning network & SegWit LTC should remain interesting option (There are also some interesting changes regarding mining fees annouced.).

Stellar Lumen, option which I definitely prefer over Ripple. Project has nice idea, and purpose. Moxie's mobilecoin will also use Lumens as transmission medium.
23  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Best altcoins to buy for 2018 on: January 05, 2018, 10:03:00 PM
pick any coin from lower rank in coinmarketcap which has huge potential and a good backend team ,, bcoz that can give you much more returns in short period in comparison to any other already established coin ..

Really? So you recommend us to invest in project with huge potential and good development team? I think OP meant something different. Your statement is so generic that it doesn't make sense.

Not to mention how it is not so easy to figure out that someone has 'good development team'. It has either to be famous, public person, or you have to know the man personally, or at least opportunity to talk with him/them personally and in this case one self has to be a developer (I am for example.). Otherwise how would someone without solid programming knowledge be able to figure out who is capable/good developer. Not to mention it is one to develop in C#/Java,another in Python (In this group functional programming is already very popular), or any script language, and third C, (put C++ with C here, or it can go with C# and Java, depending on few things.). Being good in any of these areas doesn't make one necessary capable of judging developers from different branch.

That being mentioned I have invested in Spectrecoin, Stellar, Sia, Bytecoin (have it atm, though not sure why. It jumped like crazy. There is a pump goin on atm it seems) and had some Golem (Still think it is a nice project.), and Verge (Bought it just because of a pump, sold when it double, unfortunatelly not at ATH. Don't think it is a nice project.).
24  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 05, 2018, 01:19:57 AM
And why there is no Monero, DASH. I would also add XSPEC and Verghe. This is also a private coin. The developers of these coins promise us complete privacy when using such coins
Verge is not a privacy coin. Public blockchain, and it leaves Tor network trough exit nodes. Regarding Dash I have to check, but I think they also have public blockchain, though they use mixing what is good, on another side also masternodes.
25  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 05, 2018, 12:09:07 AM


Then again, check the mobilecoin.com project. There is a whitepaper on the page, and there is a great wired (Just google wired mobilecoin.) article explaining technical details. If you know who is Moxie Marlinspike you will probably like this coin.
Mobile coin lacks some aspects of privacy, but it provides (It will provide, it still doesn't exist) enough privacy for 95% of people. People will be able to send money anonymously over encrypted chat clients like Signal and WhatsApp (These chat clients will be wallets at the same time.), so the focus is on normal average Joe's, comfort and security. It is quite nice, just open Signgal and send your friend money to help him or borow him, or pay someone without anyone knowing how much and what you have paid.

So, you see, we don't have enough privacy coins.
26  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 05, 2018, 12:02:56 AM
Spent some time recently looking for low marketcap, high growth potential privacy altcoins for 2018. All have a marketcap below $50m and not on any big exchanges yet but have active developers and good tech. I'm sure I missed some good ones but here are the best 5 I found recently:

1) Lux
2) Zoin
3) Solaris
4) Phore
5) Hush

I go into more detail and explain each one in this video: https://youtu.be/X0waJTP96bc. Let me know what you guys think.

Seeing what happened with Verge there's definitely a possibility for some great returns, the only question that I have is one of thinking how many privacy coins do we really need? I feel the market could become saturated and then returns would be not so great.

I know privacy altcoin become more popular recently. Many people talk about it. But why we nneed so many of privacy coin? I think one or two is enough. Monero is still the first one of my choice.

There are different reason to like more privacy coins. First many of them are not private, they just pretend to be, b/c they know most of people won't care, they only like to hear somewhere 'it is a privacy, secure anonym coin'.

Choice is good. Some have different capabilities. E.g. xspec works inside of Tor network + obfuscatoin in case you are in country which blocks Tor (This sometimes need additional help/configuration, but developers are always ready to jump in and help). Monero still works on their I2P solution.

Competition is good.

Very often return is better with low value coins. E.g. if you bought xspec one month ago, you would pay 40 cent. Current price is ~ 4.5$. That is return of 11x. We all expect it to go much further with price.

I am still buying the coin, because I still think it will continue to provide a nice return for a while. I think the coin has potential to reach 100$, but even it it goes to 20$ only, it is quadruplicated investment.
27  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Best privacy coin? on: January 04, 2018, 11:51:56 PM
If you're into privacy coins, take a look at deeponion

That coin uses Tor code from 2014 (Which is full of security bugs/issues.), and they didn't consider it is a priority to fix that, because 'developer who is responsible for that' had better things to do, implementing DeepSend.

Public blockchain. Number of developers not known (It could be all one guy, and rest does marketing), closed source, Tor exit nodes, no privacy anywhere.

But yeah, I know, I understand. Airdrops.
28  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 04, 2018, 11:12:09 PM

XSPEC's professional 15+ years cryptographers are preparing default stealth addresses and first ever in crypto staking on stealth addresses in Q2 2018.
Technical document will follow ofc.

It is a good thing you don't believe, but will it matter when it happens?
Only is that you will miss the train

No hard feelings, just that XSPEC knows what it does, it already is the only project thats got Ring Sings, Stealth Addresses(yep they are not default) and obfuscated intergrated TOR in its client

Don't know about the 15+ cryptographers, can't find them here https://spectreproject.io/ anyway.

we'll see about Q2 2018, weird, with 15+ cryptographers still no technical documents that can be peerreviewed... You realize that such supernew things should be peerreviewed and seriously tested... Q2 is quite the shorte timeframe, lol.

We'll see about missing the train, let's hope that noone gets under the train instead ;-)


That is wrong. There are only two developers, who know what they are doing. I think he meant 15+ years, not developers.

Edit:
Actually he probably meant cryptographers with 15+ years of experience.
29  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 04, 2018, 11:10:18 PM
For your information xspec blockchain is not public, and it uses ring signatures. Also many improvements are comming soon. 1.4 should be one month away, and v2 in 2nd Q 2018.

https://chainz.cryptoid.info/xspec/address.dws?SY2quR9aV1VJSmHGRLkvUcBNg8vunahpW9.htm

I see addresses and amounts, I can follow transactions... looks pretty public to me

also:
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/xspec/#!rich

please compare to:
https://moneroblocks.info/richlist

pretty obvious, no?
You are just being ignorant, or you don't read what you comment? People who use public addresses are visible, those who use stealth profile are not visible in the richlist. This was already mentioned. Yes we know Monero uses private profile/stealth addresses per default, and as the only option. How Monero integrates w/ Tor or I2P network? All xspec nodes run inside Tor, never leaving it (Never using exit nodes.), and it also supports OBFS4 (Tor obfuscation) for countries which block Tor. You don't have to answer, the question is rethorical. Monero still doesn't have something like that, but they are working on it. Well, xspec is also working on making private profile being default.
30  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 04, 2018, 11:03:58 PM
Tto me the most interesting project announced atm is https://www.mobilecoin.com/, although it doesn't covers all aspects of privacy (Project is still at least half year away from release.) it does cover most important things 95% of peopla cares about. One will be able to sent money anonymously (Will use stellar lumens) to friends, family etc. by using encrypted chat clients like Signal (Mobilecoin is actually Moxie's project.) and WhatsApp. On the link you can find whitepaper, and there is an excellent, very detailed wired article, which explains how everything should work: https://www.wired.com/story/mobilecoin-cryptocurrency/

Sorry man, that's not enough for anonimity by a long shot: https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/20701/what-is-a-stealth-address

Like xspec is only stealth addresses?
33  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 04, 2018, 10:46:30 PM
btw hush has also used trusted setup. Have to check other mentioned coins, but from my experience, unfortunately most of coins I checked either have some strange definitions of privacy or just pretend. Most of them don't even mention (like in a roadmap) particularly meaningful features.
34  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: My Top 5 Privacy Altcoins for 2018 on: January 04, 2018, 10:37:21 PM
These are not privacy coins, they all have rich lists. When you send coins to me I can look that up in the blockchain, see how many coins you have and with whom you transacted:

https://explorer.luxcoin.xyz/richlist
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/zoi/#!rich
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/xlr/#!rich
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/phr/#!rich
https://explorer.myhush.org/richlist

Xspec too by the way
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/xspec/#!rich

they're NOT private, all of them...

does anybody here do the least amount of research before they trhow money at something, or y'all just parrotting whatever some dude on the internet says?

For XSPEC specifically, if you did anything other than just look for a richlist you'd know XSPEC currently has a roadmap which will make it fully private in the near future.

With xspec people who care to avoid richlist can choose stealth addresses. Default is comming soon.
35  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Best privacy coin? on: January 04, 2018, 09:14:25 PM
HUSH is my best pick, it's the only one that didn't take of 10-20x as al the other anon coin, and according to my research is one of those with a very active developement and with different feautures that gives to it a kind of competitive advantage in the long run

Hush required trusted setup same as Zcache. If anyone saved the private key (Which must be destroyed, so you just choose to trust them right?) proves can be manipulated.

Not to mention other 'privacy' coins with public blockchain (Verge. Not even Tor implementation is right. Nodes aren't inside of the network.).

Many privacy coins have community which don't really care about privacy. Few days ago I tried checking few facts in particular chat room about their coin, but no one had anything to say. They just continued their discussion about mining.

From privacy coins I checked besides Monero, I like Cloak and Spectrecoin. It is only that CloakCoin code inspection takes quite a long time, and not sure if Enigma was the right choice. Building beast like that from scratch is definitely a challenge, but it will have bugs (Like any other  project.) and it will take time until one can consider it to be a robust, reliable solution. I could be wrong, though I speak this from my experience as a software developer. I would rather stay with Tor, which is an upstream grown-up project maintained by highly skilled individuals, and with many, many already fixed bugs.
36  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is Xspec a scam like DeepOnion? Whats even the fucking point? on: January 04, 2018, 02:21:02 PM
I saw a lot of people shill about Xspec, sometimes it seemed even with copy&paste posts. They dont have a sig tho like the DeepOnion guys who now even need to make fake purchases at Exchanges to push the price up artificially.

Is Xspec the same? A bounty/spam campaign but they pay them even without having a sig? Possibly by the same guys as Deeponion?

Why do people do this? There is so many real privacy coins still low like Colx (based on Pivx), Zoin (based on Zerocoin), Linda of which some have very large, real communitys and 100s of devs in Github, coming exchange listings and dev updates-... why would people push scamcoins when they could make way more money in real projects, give back to the crypto communty,. and we all win ? Sharing the value instead of making just the owner of DeepOnion & co rich?





It is not same. So many privacy coins you say?  Mention only one which is completely integrated in Tor network (nodes are inside network, no exit nodes being used here.), w/ OBFS4 Tor obfuscation, so it can work behind GWF and in countries which block Tor. That plus Ring signatures and stealth address of course.

People why do you choose this project over Spectrecoin, espeically at the price? They copied wallet almost 1:1. They claim they took code from ShadowCache, but quick comparation will show features found only in Spectrecoin wallet, which were not present in ShadowCoin code.

Since Spectrecoin is Open Source, it is not a big deal they use their code. That part is ok. The question si what they offer? The concept of anonymity and features of Spectrecoin copied here, don't make much sense in their setup (Bank!?) IMO.
38  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: About this Spectrecoin(XSPEC) on: December 24, 2017, 09:40:07 PM
People (Community involved in marketing.) were warned about this before, but then again nothing specially bad happend. Many people joined Spectrecoin community. Marketing campaign is 100% community organized, and has very little or nothing to do with project development/lead. The fact is, until yesterday so to say Spectrecoin had 0 (zero) marketing efforts, and project lead was/is focused on improving tech/programming.

Anyone who finds Spectrecoin ideas and tech interesting, will soon find out it is a real project, and a good one.

Resources are restricted, team quite small, so energy is spent there, where it really counts in the long term. Community decided to take marketing in their hands, and the result is what we have.

Marketing that is not perfect, but is still works, it leaves some bad taste here and there, but in general on the end things will work well I think.
39  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Is DEAD Again!! on: December 23, 2017, 01:54:15 AM
Bitcoin is not dead. Whales just cashing out before Christmas holidays and it is normal situation. You also can do the same or just wait for winter rise of cryptomarket. In my opinion Bitcoin will correct till 12K$.
I would rather say ordinary people were/are caching out, maybe those same who joined the market in last months, and companies, pro traders. But I doubt it is just that.

Lot of new guys are neither tech versed nor traders. Many entered because of repeating news about BTC success, helped by their bad situation or greed. Some persuaded by friends or family. People not really willing to risk, and without resources to invest. They 'gamble' little what they have and react nervously to each move. I know guy who sold everything he had first time when he noticed 'bigger' move like from 11k peak to ~10k.

Anyway what would I like to know is why is this first year where 'caching out' is so obvious? Of course before something like this wasn't possible to this extent, but again not to be measurable at all?
40  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Too late for mooners hoping 50x-100x to join the party. Boat has left on: December 21, 2017, 12:25:51 AM
IMO it doesn't make sense to left money sitting/waiting for special 100x return coins.

Invest in things where you think you'll make profit. If you double it in a month it is great.

I have made some nice money with ltc. It is volatile but quite predictable (or I was lucky), what I like.

Few people mentioned spectercoin. I wouldn't say it is better than Monero, but I like it better than other privacy coins tech wise, and I think it had a nice future, and is good long term investment.

Verge, I think one can still make money with it, short term at least.

Long term Golem token also looks like a reasonable investment IMO.

It is true that cheap coins often provide nice return, but also coins which went > 1$ can be very good investment, especially if they have something to offer. Look cloakcoin. Who bought if for even 4 - 5$ made good investment, not to mention Monero. In this regard, as privacy coin, I think that spectrecoin has a bright future ahead of it.
