1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] SMLY- smileycoin - for rewards in education on: Today at 06:41:30 PM

The functionality of rewarding with progressively more SMLY as the student finishes more lectures can be done purely within the tutor-web system, i.e. without knowing the payment SMLY address. Until now we have just had the rewards inside the system until the students choose to redeem their SMLY.

But we've learned that most students just ignore the SMLY (which is why we've set a deadline, after which the SMLY just get donated).

Your idea to link the rewards/amounts explicitly to a registered SMLY address gives an added benefit: It would allow us to reward with some bonus those students who have downloaded a SMLY wallet. So we can direct increased SMLY rewards at those who have shown an interest in SMLY.

Cool, really cool.

Unless someone sees a problem, we should just implement this!



So currently most students aren't taking possession of their SMLY? They're just doing the exercises for the educational benefit and/or fun?

Perhaps another way to control fake accounts would be a sort of PoS+PoW (where the 'W' in PoW is Work performed completing exercises). It could be something like this:

-student logs in by demonstrating ownership of a particular SMLY coin address
-the reward they earn for completing a task is proportional to the amount of SMLY in the address

The problem with this is that it would also incentivize hoarding, meaning nobody would spend their SMLY at the University cafeteria - bad!

So, instead of basing the reward on the amount of SMLY in an address, the reward is based on the amount of SMLY the address has previously earned from Tutorweb irregardless of whether that amount is still in that address.

Have you thought of a way of controlling registrations through the physical distribution of anonymous accounts to students, or perhaps using kennitala as in the Auroracoin airdrop?

How do you deter students from gaming the system by completing the same easy quiz over-and-over for rewards?

Is this a LetsMakeLazyWhaleBastardsRicherCoin topic?

Seriously.. you should consider relaunch with a fair distribution - each linked btc address gets equal.
Otherwise this coin is DOA.. sorry.

You have a weird definition of the word "fair".

You should create your own clone of byteball and try that distribution method and see how far you get.

I'm looking to buy 100k-200k of shift.
If anyone would like to unload a large amount of Shift at current market price please PM me.

Has anyone here done a comparison between MaidSafe and Shift (shiftnrg.org)?

They seem like similar projects, yet Shift is less than $1MM.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: SHIFT Speculation Thread on: March 14, 2017, 08:11:42 PM
I just found out about Shift this afternoon.

From my early reading, it looks a lot like MaidSafe. Can anyone point to a comparison post about these two?

If it is similar to MaidSafe, and if they keep developing at the rate they seem to be going, it is hard to understand why they have such a low Marketcap. Anyone got some insight on this?

Thank you tonych for another generous Byteball airdrop!

So what would I do with a bitswift token?

Could that see the ISK resume a downward trajectory?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] SpreadCoin | Decentralize Everything (decentralized blockexplorer coming) on: March 12, 2017, 01:54:18 AM

WTF are you talking about... we are mostly witnessing the side effects of a bitcoin price boost and nothing else.
Pretend all you like but how stupid do you think people are?

Really? The price of Spread in bitcoin more than doubles and it's because bitcoin is going up? Indeed, "how stupid do you think people are?"

I don't know any of the backstory here but I'll say this: coins101 exited this thread with complete class. He did no slagging of Spreadcoin. I hope you show the same class towards Helium, but I'm not optimistic based on your opening comments about that project.

The Melon team not active on this forum,  Undecided this crowdsale has been ended, right?

It ended 13 minutes after it began.

Seems to me like this coin will die.. 80.000 mkt cap :/ sad
Looks like delist inbound



Bitswift is not a coin.

Bitswift will never die.

-bitswift

But what is it, exactly?
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][HLM] HELIUM - PRE NOTICE on: March 06, 2017, 01:19:18 PM


We've secured a few social media domains, but are there any specific ones you would like us to add?

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, r/ are done.

As helium is a very unique brand within payments, the network can be very aggressive if wants to be in pursuing anyone that attempts to cyber squat or ripoff the brand.

Some people won't like that we're thinking about social media - but over the next few years, that's where average Joe public spend their time. The network can decide on these things much later on. Let's just think about securing some channels first so we don't have to worry about chasing down cyber squatters.

You should have a presence on Steemit.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][HLM] HELIUM - PRE NOTICE on: March 05, 2017, 11:35:46 PM
I have been thinking about it, and I believe I have a solution for how to handle the coinswap that is very different from the idea coins101 originally put forward but solves all the problems we have already discussed (and a few we haven't).  Burn the SPR.  Hear me out....

What do you see happening to the price of HLM the moment it launches?  EPIC CRASH.  It will never be able to sustain the marketcap it establishes for itself before the economic fork.  Long time SPR holders (and even the new investors who are able to dump their SPR to recoup their BTC) will have no skin in the game when it comes to HLM.  They are free coins to them.



I would have thought the same thing, then I participated in the byteball miracle. That's the one where they gave away byteball to bitcoin holders by doing a snapshot, and the price rose nearly to $100 anyways. Still sitting over $50.

As long as HLM is a credible project, I don't see why it can't do the same.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][HLM] HELIUM - PRE NOTICE on: March 04, 2017, 08:24:54 PM
Snapshot method for byteball distribution seemed to work brilliantly.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: February 15, 2017, 02:52:54 PM
the only winners of this coin is the first round participants

Any round participants are winners. Its free money.

Instead of comparing yourself to the first round participants, whey don't you compare yourself to an 8 year-old in some third world hell hole who goes to work everyday sorting through garbage.

Feel better now?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Melonport [MLN] Blockchain Software for Asset Management on: February 15, 2017, 02:48:28 PM
Wow there's a lot of entitled whiners on this thread.

You whine it must be a scam because you didn't get any.

You whine at those who did get some that they're getting scammed.

Grow up. The market obviously concluded this is an epic project and bought it up accordingly. I didn't get any either. My fail.

If anyone finds themselves with a need to sell, PM me.

I do not see any support for the project, just information thrown in the wind.

What support do you want to see? This post is purely informational as the ann says. All the "support" was done during the ico, which finished a while ago, please read the ann again

This topic is meant to be purely informational. I dont understand your comment

I already read, so you mean that this coin is dead? No news on this project? Is it waste of time for your money in this currency then? Now you understand what I'm asking?


Dude take 3 seconds and go to the website and see a very live project.
