Who asked you for IFC? As far as the exchanges go they are still HEAVILY centralized on BTER. Users want more exchanges so they do not need to depend on a single one. More exchanges allows less dependence on a single exchange to pick up the majority of volume. Especially with the complete train wreck Cryptsy has been it is completely useless for IFC holders. The new exchanges are simply meeting the demand for more options. No one forced it on them, and we couldn't stop them if we wanted to. This is a open source p2p system. As far as there being no reason to mine, the transaction fees pay far more than the block reward now. Why does this not count in your assessment?
No actually request by jrretirement for specific IFC, but the implication that I was not helping the community by sitting on the sidelines. The additional suggestion that I could help the community through bounties and giveaways was the implication that I "should" put the coins to good use. When I thanked you and jrretirement for the request but I wasn't interested, is when both of you became hostile that I was sitting on a large stash and not helping the community.
I ask you why I should do more in the IFC community? Because I can get richer from the coin? Sure but why would all of you be so angry that I wasn't trying to make myself richer? Maybe I was happy with the wealth I had in IFC. I think that some of the hostility comes from fear. Because I own so much IFC I could "potentially" thwart" and plans you may have. I'm a rogue IFC owner that you can't predict or influence. That would suck. It's like the fear everyone has about BTC/LTC whales. People who could just go Galt and destroy all the value in the coin.
Don't worry I don't plan to destroy the value of IFC. I wish you the best of luck with it. It would be nice if you were more transparent about where IFC was going. A roadmap would have been great with timetables, but I guess I will never know because I'm not in the "inside".
I do hope IFC does well and if it becomes more successful I may be back.
Please, get over yourself before you start channeling the spirit of Ayn Rand.
Shall I quote the exact conversation?
I have recently been informed by other IFC users that you have a thread disclosing that you are holding a few % of the IFC market cap. I was wondering if you would please add me on skype as skypename so we might discuss possible cooperation in supporting the IFC network. Additionally we have a decent sized IFC group chat there. Hope to hear from you soon.
This is me inviting you to participate. Seeing as you are such a large holder I figured you might actually want to participate the community in some way.
Thanks for the offer but my IFC is in cold storage and I plan to leave it there for a few years. I don't have any plans to use it directly in the community. I believe it is better served indirectly by being removed from the IFC circulation.
This is you making assumptions and blowing me off like a hobo who wandered up asking for quarters.
I never asked you to remove it from cold storage for one thing, second you don't plan to help the community grow in any way with your efforts? You are just going to sit on that and let everyone else do the legwork?
I didn't mean to upset you. I actively communicate IFC as one of the better coins. I work full time and run a cryptocurrency mining farm along with investments in several projects. I heavily mined many coins IFC being one of them some do well and others failed. But I don't have any more time to contribute to new projects. Maybe in the future.
That is a lot of IFC. I just figured that with the massive returns IFC has been showing you that you might want to help the community grow rather than just sitting on the sidelines and depending on people like me do it for you, but your priority was made clear to me in your first sentence.
You made a nice profit on IFC didn't you? Who do you think made that happen? You were invited to have your say in the community. You declined. The community gives to you, and you are only interested in taking more. In summation you have no right to complain. Keep your assumptions and slander to yourself.
I look forward to buying up your cheap coins. Good luck with your self absorption.
