Guys, I have a question.

A lot of people are saying that coin kite is responsible for helping boost bc price... I'm unsure of what the site does in it's entirety other than help process payments with a select few currencies. It's understandable if its HELPED, but bc has rocketed, are people trying to say that coinkite is solely responsible for such a shift in price? I know they are also open to AUR as one of the currencies they want to integrate but require the community support in order to do so, and I believe that what that means is effectively donation support. I checked the public wallet address they are asking for donations in to and so far there is maybe 150 or so. Any ideas or thoughts on coin kite from anyone (who isnt involved with it) and any information from anyone who held BC as to whether coinkite was responsible for helping the price rise and why?



I don't think CoinKite had much to do with it.  Moolah.io has supported Auroracoin from before the launch with similar products (although not the POS machine).
What's moolah? Oh, a website ranked 300k+ on Alexa. They delisted BC, because, they said:

"BC doesn't have enough volume on our website"



Moolah is air.

Alexa is telling me moolah.io has a rank of 159,406... and outranks coinkite.com in the USA 35,717 to 68,651.

Quite embarrassing.  Even the safecoin.io website was off by an hour.

So we're in good company!  Cheesy

Largest single transaction so far is for 902.30406 BTC.  Don't know the largest on the Mastercoin side.

Thanks for your kindness. Maybe we need a more accurate word rather than “IPO” to describe the fundraising stuff.

I'm suspicious the OP is really a member of the maidsafe team.

This looks to be a much more authentic spokesman for MaidSafe: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=116788

No maidsafe/safecoin bitcoin IPO address yet?  Or am I just not seeing it?  Not an auspicious start to this IPO.

Zero active connections on Windows wallet.  Is there some other configuring I need to do?

Just came across this: aurmarket.is

Nice to see some infrastructure rolling out.

Merge-mined makes a coin at zero-cost coin. Essentially worthless bi-product.

I'm not sure why being zero-cost would make something worthless, or why adding cost would make something worth more.

Isn't worth set by the intersection of supply and demand?  Merge-mining doesn't increase the supply (if I understand it correctly) and should actually make the secondary coin worth more because it would be more secure than if it were mined alone.

My understanding is this project ended when Shopify started allowing its merchants to accept bitcoin.

Balduro please tell us whats next for Auroracoin.
Something you can pay for with AUR in Iceland?

Aurcoin.is

Anyone?

The unfortunate fact remains that unless Iceland does some sort of official AUR census and asks every single household whether they claimed and received their 31.8 AUR, we might never know if the dev has been laundering and siphoning AUR from the premine into random undisclosed wallets that he and his team hold to dump at a slow and controlled rate to keep the market from crashing and thus maximize profits because of the extreme lack of liquidity of AUR. There is still a huge potential for scam surrounding AUR because of the lack of transparency; and I don't think that will ever really change.

Potential for scam and actual scam are two entirely different things.  We have to work with the world we live in.

No one has yet offered one iota of evidence that a scam is being perpetrated here yet, but evidence does exist that the airdrop is proceeding as advertised.  If you're looking for guarantees you'll have to call the FDIC.

Of note also, it appears that Balduro is actually delivering the Air Drop as promised. I cannot 100% verify that yet and the method he used screams scam. However I am not above admitting mistakes and it is certainly appearing that Balduro has made the all time mother of implementing the right idea with the wrong execution!

More to come on this as I dig deeper.

Well I didn't see that one coming.  Kudos to BCX for being the man and admitting his error.

Other than because it is a scam, why would a SHA-256 alt-coin not be designed to be merge-mined with bitcoin?
17  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: Why Auroracoin may be the most exciting altcoin of 2014 on: March 31, 2014, 11:38:08 PM
Scam coin

You'd better tell all the people on here who seem to be using it:

http://aurcoin.is/

And the 1300 members of the Facebook Auroracoin buy/sell group

This is terrific.  As one of those early bitcoin adopters I am looking for crypto-related investments and will definitely keep an eye on this.

Hey retard, you forgot to add my avatar in this bad photoshop LOL

In addition, I don't show my online status.


~BCX~


That is so funny.  


On a different note.  I am completely amazed at Auroracoin's resilience.  I was sure it would be practically at 0.0000000.... right now.  It is steadily going down, but has totally burned away as I thought.   Not nearly as many people dumping as I had thought.  Considering there isn't any place to actually spend them in Iceland, the only useful thing to do with them at the moment is dump.  Sooo, what is going on?  No, army of Chinese hackers managed to get through into Iceland's IP addresses yet?

That was the moment that AUR just lost the tiny, tiny, tiny bit of credibility it might have once had....
What is going on is a load of badly burned investors who can't / won't face the facts and get out of AUR while they still have a small percentage of their initial stake.
Anyone who buys into AUR from here on in.....I've got some Gaelcoin for sale, if u want a change of country  Grin

Why do you think that photoshop was done by an Auroracoin supporter?
20  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: Auroracoin - Forked and Game Over on: March 29, 2014, 11:36:14 AM
Please explain how Icelanders are to acquire BTC, LTC, or DOGE.

Isn't Iceland one of the best places in the world to mine?

Geothermal to generate electricity, cold climate to not need to waste electricity on air-conditioning, I thought it was one of the mining Meccas everyone wished they could relocate their mining operations to?

-MarkM-


Right. They can mine, they cannot buy.
Do we now expect that everyone must be a miner to participate in a meaningful way in the crypto economy?  Does ZeroBarrier never buy and sell bitcoin, LTC etc?
Is he such an objectivist hard ass that he feels he must destroy anything that smacks of charity?

The airdrop, which despite weeks if accusations has shown no sign of being a scam, is a terrific way to put a lot of crypto in the hands of a geographically concentrated group of people.  It is conceivable that this will lead to people actually using it to **gasp** transact, rather than merely speculate.  This isn't about charity, it's about moving cryptocurrency forward.
