US politics are even united. United under a single political party. That single political party pretends it's two parties that agree on every major issue and disagree on a few hot button social issues. This keeps Americans bickering with each other about trivial crap while their nation is stolen from them.

Case in point the posts above and below this one.

imo PHS should stay as PoW/PoS - you are forking it too much. the coin is good as it is - people love this wallet. i see ZS coin also forked it for PoW.
instead of chaning to PoS we need more exchanges, games etc.

I believe you need to do some research. The coindev correctly pushed a hard fork to address a problem caused by a PoW attack which disabled PoS.

...now there's a sentence I never thought I would assemble.

The clones have a bright future according to your arguments.  Cheesy

Heard about attack of the clones and all this allegedly advanced utility. I eventually get around to looking at each altcoin. The "bitcoin 2.0 super mega ultra deluxe new and improved" thing gets old. I don't need my cryptos to make my breakfast or provide me with hookers and blow contacts.

I don't get the mindset that has accepted bitcoin isn't a pyramid scam, and can accept its high concentration of ownership amongst a few hundred people, but those same people KNOW that NXT must be a scam, and so isn't worth a risk at 2 cents.

The "...but bitcoin blah blah" argument is real thin. It's not 2009 anymore. Bitcoin is the center of the crypto universe and without it we wouldn't be discussing Next's poor distribution. I can't change the events of 2009, but I can make decisions about fledgling altcoins today. My opinion on Next is that it's a poor investment with little incentive to compel someone to swap their bitcoin for it.

You're a good egg FaSan. I've been running the Zeitcoin wallet you worked on since the day you released it and have had zero problems.

Cryptsy, for all its faults, has actually turned out to be the most reliable.

Please don't use cryptsy and reliable in the same sentence. Those guys can't keep their PHS wallet online for 2 days in a row.
1568  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Overstock.com CEO interested in NXT asset exchange! on: May 04, 2014, 01:13:33 AM
I like POS coins like hobo & TEK and philospherstones, but NXT takes crypto to a whole new level.

Don't see this next level thing at all...unless you meant next level of pyramid scam? The wallet seems clunky and amateurish. The problem with this pyramid design is the original investors didn't allow any incentive for new investors to make anything at all on their investment.
1569  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Overstock.com CEO interested in NXT asset exchange! on: May 04, 2014, 12:44:42 AM
There's no money to be made from forging for the average person

Agreed. So why would I invest in it when I can invest in something that will pay ME. I have no incentive to enrich the first few Nxt investors. That is not the case with any of the better PoS coins.

Less than 2 days ago I was still hearing (on my radio) about the big one in Texas.
They have enough Federal land already.

Widespread initial distribution of pure PoS coins remains a problem.

No it doesn't. You just buy it at the going rate. End of problem.

Thats what I did.

I don't buy the idea that you're alluding to that "initial distribution" is an issue for NXT or any other POS currency - at least not an insurmountable one. There have been as many advantages to having some big initial accounts as disadvantages. For example, the coin got off the ground for a start which it probably wouldn't have otherwise. Secondly, the development effort was capitalised by much of the initial issue and this has lead to things happening on time and more or less according to the specifications envisaged at the outset.

As a previous poster remarked, NXT is now becoming spread out - at least as successfully as some other established cryptos. And anyway, if your that worried about initial distribution you shouldn't be in cryptos at all or any widely investment for that matter. The asset can end up in a few people's hands even though it doesn't start out that way and vica versa.

What matters is how much you've got, not what everyone else has got.

Yes it does. I prefer PoW/PoS hybrids because imo PoW is likely to result in wider distribution than initial PoS. Nxt is a horrible investment for new investors imo because forged transaction fees go to the large initial accounts. This is unlike a typical PoS model where someone can at any point invest and almost immediately see a return. I have no financial stake in Nxt's success or failure. I tried it and found it lacking.

hi all

what means? "not staking because you dont have mature coins"

Im using v1.4.0.0-g4ddc7a0a-hobo Wallet
Compiled ubder Linux, Debian
Wallet Unlocked
i have 1100 HBN in the wallet transfered 1 day ago

I dont understand why show this message?
must i wait 30 days or more? when start staking?

thanks

It means you haven't waited 10 days since transferring the coins to your wallet.
1573  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Overstock.com CEO interested in NXT asset exchange! on: May 03, 2014, 11:18:46 PM
That is your prerogative. I have tried Nxt myself, I just didn't find anything to like about it. Has the ridiculous 1 Nxt minimum transaction fee been eliminated at least?

It will be removed. First, we need to pass 132K to be able to split 1NXT into many NXTQUANTs. After that, we can adjust the fees.

The fees are too high and are only benefiting the first few investors. It's difficult to see Nxt as anything more than a pyramid scheme. Widespread initial distribution of pure PoS coins remains a problem.

NXT is the biggest hyped joke of all. Low quality code. Very insecure and this guy http://87.230.14.1/nxt/nxt.cgi?action=3000&acc=4747512364439223888 mined  23298 out of total 127960 blocks. Cryptos used to be about decentralization and now people buy whatever. Cryptos centralized, checkpointing etc. Nobody is thinking anymore This is a complete joke premined public ledger luring noobs. Dont forget that majority of coins are cornered. (71 individuals bought the entire stake for 21 btc)

Agreed. Nxt is a step backward.

Ahh, so you agree with FUD and stuff that is just plain untrue.  I'll make sure I never listen to your advise in the future, thanks.

Is the SP10 May batch shipment still starting next week?

Earlier today Spondoolies said: If you'll order SP10 now, it will be shipped between May 10 and May 15

I also have orders ... so we should be smiling soon.  :-)

Good news. Does anyone know approximate cost of shipping an sp10 to the states? I couldn't seem to get this information from the website without entering complete shipping information. $4495 + shipping for 1.4th to begin mining in a couple weeks(1.5+ difficulty adjustments) sounds like a positive roi is well into the future.

so what happens with the PoW mining and the block halving? One of the reasons I invested in this coin is because of the block halving in PoW. Also, there are still lots of PoW miners out there. Cutting them out is not a good idea IMO. Alot of them can only get coins through mining, and by going 100% PoS we are forcing them to buy PHS.

It would be better to find a solution so that we can retain PoW/PoS rather then going 100% PoS.

Swell, go find a solution. Meanwhile some immature kids in their basement are going to lock out PoS...again. This coin is being crippled by these attacks and the incompetence of some alleged tech guys at one poorly run exchange. We need real solutions, not hope and dreams.

PoW was fine for initial distribution, but the landscape is filled with altcoins all competing for the same hashes. Ending PoW will upset the few people that mine it and provide some much needed stability for the many that hold PHS. The coin is not that expensive at these levels. If you're obsessed wtih the mining "experience" then petition hashco.ws to add PHS as a payout option. At this point PoW is holding this coin back.

1578  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: {BFL} Here's a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK at your Monarch! on: May 03, 2014, 09:15:54 PM
As to your last statement, is that true of the FPGAs?  Regardless, doesn't that apply to the majority of ASIC mining equipment ever sold?

I believe so. Interestingly bfl was first to announce an asic product and could have set themselves apart from all the other vendors in this regard, but several production errors in 2012 & 2013 put them behind avalon. The first couple of avalon batches then went on to become extremely profitable for those who took the risk. Those easily made a positive roi for their owners. Bitfury has had products that have done this and more recenty bitmain has done the same.

it doesnt surprise me that the price goes down since the devs are anonymous ,look at blackcoin and their transparency

Devs are worthy of our recognition with what they've done and posted so far, don't think we need any personal infos about them...
I should reveal myself so some loon can come to my door because they're angry and I have to shoot a guy?  Um no thanks.

Satoshi being anonymous surely hurt bitcoin...

How do you know that? Do you have some method of comparing what has transpired to what may have transpired if satoshi's identity had been revealed?

Discontinue PoW asap and close this attack vector. It's just causing problems at this point.
