Rules reminder

Off topic includes any extensive discussion of other coins, promoting other coins, or posting of promotional materials from other coins.

Comparisons between Monero and Grin are okay but keep it substantive and not just cheerleading or doomsaying

Good point about ETH. They are cutting their mining reward by 30% and it is happening on Wednesday. That's a HUGE amount of hash rate that is being effectively given the boot.

thanks, I forgot there was a third.

I would like to see a rebuttal as the guy who wrote that also says he has written what we are looking for already although when I read that info (I think it's called loki) I saw one gapping attack vector but I'll not mention that unless we are considering using it.

Something called LLARP?
There's also Sekreta.
Bunch of random letters and syllables to me.

I think we need a consensus from the Devs on what they think on this subject.

I personally would like to hear @Smooth thoughts on this.

Honestly I am staying the hell away from the Kovri drama. I've been wary of it for quite some time.

That is not meant as a comment either way about whether any action should or should not be taken. It is simply my position that until required by some sense of governance (such as the core team being called upon to weigh in on whether FFS milestones have been met), I will exercise my prerogative as an unpaid volunteer to not get involved with it and to work for a better Monero and a better world in other ways.

Also I am considering, that the size of the clam overgrew what RPi can handle - are there other RPi stakers here?

That seems possible. RPi is 32 bit right? My clam client (linux command line) after it has been running a while is using about 3.4 GB of address space though not quite that much actual memory. Seems close to a 32 bit limit. I'm on 64 bit system with plenty of RAM so it doesn't matter at all in my case but it may in yours.

Also, volume was only a total of $250 from all 3 exchanges added together. That would never make Aeon a good investment.

I see $5000 24h volume on coinmarketcap. What you are looking at?

How did the darkoverlord get banned? I though steemit was decentralized

Explained here along with alternate ways to access: is a web site which views the blockchain not the blockchain itself.

Whole past month price of AEON was sub 10000 satoshi. It was not this low for last 2 years. Most of those 2 years AEON desperately needed rebase and still it was valued more then right now.

Wider market conditions play a role. It isn't the only factor but it is a factor.

The GUI version of the latest update ( has been tagged and binaries uploaded. It was waiting for a fix to the Windows build process which has now been resolved.

Dash is just a Bitcoin clone with discarded technology on top of a ponzi scheme (masternodes).

Monero, on the other hand, is unique both in code and features, and basically got all the main fundamental points right, btw, Articmine videos on youtube are some of the best explanations of the economics of Monero:

monero is just a bytecoin clone  Smiley lol

Yeah, except for the GUI, RingCT, bulletproofs, updated PoW algorithm, LMDB, mandatory minimum ring size and decoy selection that doesn't completely suck to the point of being useless, and a million other things that actually make it not shit.

I reckon the reorgs done last year which caused Cryptopia to delist us was an effort to double spend, however much harder to verify in cryptonote coins.

It wasn't, it was a bug. Once the bug was fixed and the nodes that got confused were unconfused, there was only one valid chain, no real reorg.

Forking bugs this this can happen in any literally any blockchain regardless of hash rate unless the code is bug free. In fact it did happen in Bitcoin, though it was caught relatively quickly.

^  Dash was never a 'no.1 coin' in anything, being somewhat of trying to be a privacy coin or otherwise.  They're good at 'marketing' tho...  Wink  But I'm not really sure how they're good at it today.  They seem to have faltered.

Not true, they originated the masternode, which is the pinnacle in gimmicky greed. Apparently Duffield understood the largest target market for cryptocurrencies long before anyone else. He may be slimy as fuck, but he understands the psychology of greed.

Maybe the psychology in the market at the particular time he did it, but no masternode coins are doing very well anymore at this point. Seems to be just one of many crypto fads whose time came and went. Duff looks like a one hit wonder to me, which likely makes it more luck than genius.

Contrast with Larimer.

hi guys, wonder if u could help me, basically trying to sync chain from scratch,, using steemd --replay-blockchain (I have downloaded block_log) it all was going fairly fast but now it jut makes 1% progress a day, so 67.3203%   18900000 of 28074743   (37052M free) and tomorrow if I will be lucky it will be 69% and so forth , does anyone know of better (I have also followed best practice to sync, inc just witness plugin) and some unix i/o tweaks as recommended

a! and yes love what has been done with steem, very innovative platform on all levels, was actually one of the first that mined it, and have 0 intention to part with it cheers

How much memory do you have and HDD or SSD?

You need 64 GB to run a node with only witness plugin at full speed (should finish replay in several hours depending on CPU speed). 32 GB + SSD is somewhat slower but not bad, but less memory and/or HDD means performance goes down from there, potentially a lot.

Work is planned to reduce the memory requirements of nodes but not done yet.

I don't think it is worth reviving this dead thread. There are many better ways to trade now.

GUI Release candidate (please test!)

We have a new release candidate GUI available for testing. Everything is merged to master. There are no binaries so you will have to compile it yourself (instructions are in the README).

Github repo:

There is some sort of build issue for Windows (also applies to Monero) which is being discussed here:
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Blogging is the new Mining on: December 01, 2018, 06:33:35 AM
That's actually a pretty bad and scary news. I have never heard any legit blockchain project laying off 70% of their project, especially when there is so much to develop. Ned says the company doesn't have enough money to even handle nodes. That sounds like they are in deep water now. SMT which was supposed to be their main booster for "to the moon" and adoption has also been delayed for who knows how long. But the thing that surprises me is that how they didn't make the most of during the bull run in Q1-Q2 this year.

Let's see how this one goes.

1. The blockchain developers didn't get laid off.
2. They have $30 million worth of STEEM left in public company accounts.
3. Costs apparently got out of way out of control due to being overly optimistic about high crypto prices earlier this year and having lofty goals. Not so good, but good that they caught it before all the funds were gone and decided to downsize
4. Nodes were very expensive, costing them $2 million/year. They are working on optimizing the costs. Plus really they should encourage other people to run their own nodes. I've never heard of another project that pays for everyone else's node.

I bet a lot of cryptos are in a similar position but they're less open about it.

Pretty sure you are right.

One good thing is that they wont have to keep selling Steem to pay all those staff.  I'm sure that's been one of the reasons why Steem has fallen further than some coins.

Agree, but remember there is still the other 30% and still a lot of non-employee costs (office, travel, legal, operations for the web site, etc.)

Maintenance update (Windows only)

Sophia (point release 8)

This maintenance release fixes a problem that existed in only when using the wallet on Windows, and in addition contains a cosmetic improvement to logging and some documentation cleanup. If you are not running Windows there is no need to update from
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: [AEON] Aeon Speculation on: November 30, 2018, 06:29:11 AM
However, some people in the Aeon subreddit are already speculating if she is dumping her Aeons in favor of making another investment

So what? If AEON is money. Then everyone is allowed to do with it weather it pleases them. If AEON is not money and there are some people that decide when I should spend it and for what I should spend it, then I personally dont care about AEON anymore and dont want it anymore. No one got any AEON for free. Everyone had to buy them or mine them. When they bought them or pay electricity to mine them, they risked value will decrease.  And no central bank would replace their lost value if that would happen.

I remember when she bought them and paid well above market to do so. She most certainly earned the right to sell as she chooses (as did any AEON owner of course; I agree with your take 100%).

People buy and sell, that's what makes a market. If the person in question is dumping (or has dumped) her coins then after the dumping the supply will tighten up again. So it goes.

Important maintenance update

Sophia (point release 7)

Dozens of upstream performance, reliability and security patches
Several documentation and configuration improvements from the AEON community

All users running nodes on the p2p network should update ASAP to prevent possible database corruption and loss of synchronization with the rest of the network.

Source code only for now. Binaries will be added when available.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] AEON [2018-09-27: update to ASAP] on: November 22, 2018, 05:01:13 AM
Please make a final push on beta testing the upcoming CLI release

Instructions for compiling it can be found in the latest State of AEON post:

We are looking to tag a new point release in the next several days so any test reports positive and negative are most welcome.

EDIT: Updated medium post with corrected build instructions:

Getting slightly off-topic maybe as the scam we are busting is now AssetRush (which was co-founded by the Bytecoin community director).

Not off topic at all. I'm quite confident it is all exactly the same scam with different names, just like the coins in the OP here. I always stated that the OP while finding a lot, was still only the tip of the iceberg, and I still believe that.

Please keep this thread informed of your findings,

Quoting for posterity:

Also, just found that they inverted the image of this guy - a real person:
