tek or phs/hbn seems to be a good idea right now, they have the highest interests rates and are actively developed

precisely. Also stacking bcx, mint, ecc, and zeit while prices are low.
2003  Economy / Speculation / Re: BTC will have no more "to the moon" rises. Face it, BTC is becomming BANKING on: April 08, 2014, 04:28:05 PM
*Yawn....

Meanwhile, I'm using bitcoin to buy and sell computer parts without having to give 15% of my sales / purchases to paypal/ebay.

Even when I have sold things using paypal, I then have gotten hit with chargebacks that have cost me THOUSANDS of dollars DESPITE having been authorized by paypal to ship the item to confirmed addresses.

With bitcoin, when someone pays me for something, I then ship it. I don't need to worry. Nobody is going to take those funds back away from me. Bitcoin is revolutionary for web payments.


Also shopping for groceries at target and Wal-Mart using bitcoin.

Quoted for emphasis.

fleabay/paypal and the credit peddlers that create fiat from thin air and then charge ridiculous interest on it can feel free to expire now. BTC is waking people up to new possibilities. Opening up their eyes to what economic freedom could really mean to them.

I just wanted to point out, that there is no "fair" in cryptos. There is only: "Not exploitable".

BTC uses proof of work (you can't "fake" work)
NXT uses proof of stake (you can't "fake" stake/ownership of coins, well you could borrow them)
While both favor specific range of people, they both do their job.

If someone finds a way to distribute coins and fees more fairly, then go ahead and make it unexploitable, but I don't think we will see that soo Wink

I prefer pow/pos hybrids as a distribution model. Sure there are problems with every distribution method, so we're down to subjective value judgments. 100% pre-mines with ipo style distribution is my least favorite.

ymmv.

It's clear however that someone late to the party wanting to create an income stream from next had better have deep pockets. The same is not true of the high yielding pow/pos coins however.

nem is certainly the coin with the biggest share of newbies pumping it. I'll give you that.

nem is a big player? What's the market cap on that?

I like the idea of next's features and I like pos, but the way next was distributed stinks to high heaven and ensures that only the first few that got involved get the transaction fees.

How much BTC do you get from fees, if you hold 100 BTC?

No only you get NONE, you also lose 11% with inflation!

Fair enough. I vote for HoboNickels then. ;p

I don't really understand how you can still be using Gox as an excuse for the refunds. First, it was pure incompetence to leave the coins on there. Second, this guy didn't even pay via coin.

The logical extension to that is that he converted the fiat to coins so he could gamble on higher exchange rates. Privatized gains and socialized losses. Heads ks wins, tails his customers lose.

Slaughter's own words quoted above illustrate the problem perfectly. He KNOWS he owes this guy a refund, he KNOWS how much he owes the guy, but he still d1cks around with the guy's money. Bfl, hashfast, and VMC all pull this crap. It takes seconds to get your funds to them, but when it comes to a legitimate and legally mandated refund there suddenly seems to be no effective way to transfer funds and dozens of bs excuses why refunds are delayed. Noone should be doing business with any of these scammy companies.

I have explained that the delay in refunds is due to our loss of bitcoins on MtGox.  We intend to refund 100% of the money we owe to customers.

K thanks for taking the time to explain.

What he did wrong was ask for a refund before his wire transfer had cleared the bank.  This caused his refund request to be rejected as the order had not been paid.  Then, when his wire transfer cleared the bank it was not marked as accepted on his account, most likely due to his refund request above.  Now, it took another month for his payment to be accepted on his account.  Now, his refund request most likely was in limbo due to it being reject above.  Now, when that was cleared up his refund request was on the bottom of the stack.  Now, that is where it is now as we are waiting to start refunds again within the next week or so.  That being said, since he complained the the Missouri Attorney General office, we had to pull his refund from the stack and respond to the Attorney Generals office.  Therefore his refund is the very bottom of the stack.

...and this? If his refund request is valid and you KNOW his refund request is valid then why not just pay the guy? Why the circus with his valid request? Because Gox? You realize it looks retaliatory right? Wouldn't it be better to just pay him his money back and save your company the black eye?

Also how could you be so shortsighted as to have your company's funds on Gox? Why weren't they in an offline cold wallet where they belong? Everyone knew gox was in trouble months ago.

Yes. Stay far away from coinex and cryptorush if you value your coins.

I prefer FIAT over random delusionary shitcoins

I'll take the delusionary shitcoins. At least they're not 100% guaranteed to lose purchasing power year in and year out.

"The Scryptcat version of Bitcoin!"

How is this relevant to this thread?

whatev. You forgot the bilderbergs. If your ego requires that you make the thread about you then at least give those scumbags some love too.

What will we stuff strippers g-strings full of?

You can always use monopoly money. It'll eventually be worth the same as fiat anyway. Smiley

paper wallets?
2017  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Best Alt coin to invest in 2014 on: April 07, 2014, 12:20:55 AM
Afraid?

Calm down?

lol

greed is ugly. I won't even bother with a response to picture puppet up there.

next is a 100% premined scam coin imo, so it's not a next vs them thing. I don't know anything about nem. Not in a big hurry to read up about it either with the creepy pumpers running all over.
2018  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Best Alt coin to invest in 2014 on: April 06, 2014, 11:43:17 PM
These nem pumpers work overtime. This thing is still vapors and already has a bunch of lackeys running around yammering about how great it is. Should we go ahead and delete our btc wallets now guys?
2019  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: !<~~~~~[ANN] BatCoin! NOW @Cryptsy [KGW][ANN]~~~~~>! on: April 06, 2014, 11:38:34 PM
Mmmmm yes guys I was trying to tell you guys but you threw my advice back at me
I got rid of my 50 million at 3-4 satoshi if you guys had pm'd me sooner I could have helped you sell at the same price.
But dont worry guys I forgive thea just have faith in me
There will be plenty more oportunities in other coins and pumps, I wish to build a community that is of dedicated pumpers.
who is with me?

you do realize that these pump and dump shemes that you are forcing PUMP GO GO GO can destroy Batcoin like the other coins ,
so i other words you have no good intention for batcoin other then make a quick profit ,
I was hoping for a healthy increase of the price so that batcoin has a future , but after the pump is over and people start to dump at any price,
batcoin will die just like the rest of the coins



With out any pumps batcoin would still be trading on tiny exchanges for 0.5 - 1 satoshis
The money made from the pumping was used to get votes on minpal and cryptsy.
Pumping the coin helps grow it and this pump was kinda slow over 2 months.
If there was no pumper intervention batcoin would have died ages ago

The problem isn't that there ARE pumps, the problem is that that's ALL there are is pumps. Batcoin should have died ages ago if this is all it's about.

lol thanx for the laugh buddy! Pretty sure the lizardmen at the fed, ecb, boe, etc as well as the political parasites in their pockets already know their favorite tool of economic enslavement is harmful and will eventually come to an end. They've got plenty of new schemes lined up to continue the oppression though. I doubt they're going to stop because we ask them to...even if we say please.
